FJOJR commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

If Nintendo could work it out to be like better online distributors like Steam or sow thing then I could see it working. Ever since the Wii I've seen a lot of value in digital downloads. Sure seeing stacks of games in a room still gives me a warm feeling but the ease of digital only is enticing. Maybe have an optional disc reader that can be installed and just allow people to order the discs online made to order. Don't have to deal with retail middle men and old-school collectors will truly have more coveted games.



FJOJR commented on Nintendo: Wii U GamePad Is The Only Real Innov...:

The Gamepad isn't innovative though. The only thing remotely new was off-TV play. But the touch screen is the ancient single touch technology the DS used at a standard def output despite the Wii U finally being HD. The thing was outdated by a lot upon arrival. As much as Nintendo uses Gunpei Yokoi's ideals of using outdated hardware to make magic at a cheap price the Wii U wasn't cheap. The iPad and other tablets had already been technologically superior and one cannot tell me that Nintendo's R&D department couldn't have seen that coming. I wish Nintendo had foregone the Gamepad, continued utilizing the Wii Remote and its extensions and bumped the Wii U's power to at least sit close to the competition. Nintendo did themselves in this generation and it won't be pretty if the NX cannot deliver something that can entice anyone that isn't a Nintendo diehard.



FJOJR commented on Nintendo Cancels Camp Miiverse in Honour of Sa...:

I can't think of another video game company that this type of things happen to. It's a testament to Mr. Iwata and his vision. For all the dude bro gamers and hardcore gamers out there that forgot what pure unadulterated fun is, Nintendo stands as a beacon of hope for the industry. It really is a culture all its own and I hope we can cultivate it to keep the company thriving for decades or another century to come.



FJOJR commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

@macmilk Indeed. I bought the Wii day one and DS day one. PLayed it to death. When it came time for the U and 3DS I was ready to upgrade because I had more than played my money's worth on the older systems. But with the NX I will have to wait because I don't believe I've played out the Wii U like I did the past systems before it.



FJOJR commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

I honestly hope they don't go this route. Nintendo has a nasty habit of not seeing their innovations realized to their fullest potential. I honestly would have preferred if they had foregone the Wii U gamepad in favor of a more powerful console that had the Wii remote and Nunchuk/ classic controller as an input device with 3DS connectivity.



FJOJR commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

I honestly don't see what else Nintendo has beyond this year and 2016 besides Star Fox, Zelda and Xenoblade. The Wii U has only seen major entries in the Mario, Donkey Kong, Pikmin, Kirby, Wii series, and Yoshi franchise with the aforementioned three other major franchise titles coming. It may not be right to release anything more for Pokemon, Metroid, or F-Zero with a new system around the corner.



FJOJR commented on Nintendo Seeks Improvement at E3 2016, Though ...:

The near-term games are fine but how is a Metroid spinoff, Fire Emblem, Zelda spinoff 3DS game that will release "in 2016" without definitive dates near term. The stuff that are near term are Devil's Third, Xenoblade, Fatal Frame, and Mario Maker and they only really focused on Mario Maker which honestly doesn't need a whole ton of time to explain. Animal Crossing were quick spinoff games that scream "milking." Yoshi's Woolly World was showcased way too much for a game that was to release in Japan and Europe in a couple of weeks. By that time any U.S. consumer would have already looked up if it's any good on YouTube. So Nintendo's brass are still out of touch.



FJOJR commented on Video: Nintendo Minute's Latest Vlog Recounts ...:

I think a lot of fans turned off Nintendo after the digital event. I know I did. So Treehouse Live and the other 2 days of E3 wasn't seen by me. Making these compilations ought to help those that were like me see some of the good that did come out of E3 even if many still believe nothing good came out of it at all.



FJOJR commented on Tablets Stole The Wii U's Thunder, Laments Shi...:

The Gamepad should have been dropped much like Microsoft did with Kinect early in the Xbox One's lifespan. That extra processing power and going back to flesh out concepts based around the Wii motion controls would have been better to me. Skyward Sword's control won't be seen again in a Zelda game? A new Metroid won't have pointer controls? What was the point of innovating to make those game's better if you go and do somethign that brings the franchise back. Pikmin 3 controlled far better with the Wii Remote than the Gamepad. Just seems like Nintendo's old guard really dropped the ball and the confidence is waning among the shareholders and fans.



FJOJR commented on Feature: Five Key Moments from Nintendo's E3:

@Royalblues I think it is no question the game will be good. It's just that it is not accompanying a Metroid main entry that got people riled up. E3 brings expectations of grandiose and Star Fox alone is not at that level. Metroid is a 1st tier franchise and Nintendo lacked first tier main entries. Thus people feel like E3 was either ok to horrible.



FJOJR commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

@BonafideInfidel Spot on. It's a lack of communication that is bad. Nintendo's old guard are great but at the same time they may also be holding the company back. The mobile games division should have been done a long time ago, the Universal theme park too. Look at the recent video game-centric movies that show love for Nintendo. The YouTube love that Nintendo slapped in the face with their policies. I can get behind most of these games but don't just throw Federation Forces up there and not address the elephant in the room (or in this case not in the room with no Samus in sight).



FJOJR commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

I'm just gonna hope the next 2 days show something. If not maybe October they'll have a Fall Direct that will show more new things. No point in wasting time on Wooly World since its coming out in a couple of weeks. Pretty sure everything we need to know about the game was already revealed.



FJOJR commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

Other M was an all right game but all right is pretty bad for Metroid's high standards. The game had simple controls for no apparent reason other than to see if it could be done. And of course the storyline to flesh out Samus' character backfired especially after the infamous Ridley scene. Smash 3D/U did well in keeping her speaking to a minimum.



FJOJR commented on Nintendo Marketing Boss Says amiibo Expectatio...:

I kinda hope that Nintendo makes deals with the other toys to life brands and adds amiibo support to them as a Nintendo exclusive. Nintendo doesn't need to create the adventure just allow there characters to partake. So a Lego version of Mario, Captain Falcon in Lego, or an infinity style version of them in Disney.
