Faruko commented on Fifa 15 Coming to Wii and 3DS on the 26th of S...:

Can you really blame EA (and Ubisoft/Activision,etc...) in all this games not coming to the WiU ? i love my WiiU but that doesnt i cant see the reason behind this, the console just started to pick up steam after almost 2 years on the market, add that the PS4 and (im pretty sure) the XB1 has sold more than the WiiU in much less time and you have a recipe for disaster.

Do not blame EA/Ubi/Activision for not wanting to make a risk a put a game on a console that will most likelynot going to sell enough, blame nintendo for not doing enough effort (at the begining) to make the console less of a risk, creating games takes money by the way

by the way, the can revive the console, they did it with the 3DS not too long ago

Faruko commented on Ubisoft Clarifies Reasoning For The Crew Skipp...:

At the end, and theres no other reason, the WiiU its not powerfuil enough & it has sold less than 10m consoles in almost 2 years

you cant blame Ubisoft for not wanting to support a console on life support, blame nintendo for not marketing the console and not do enough for it (unitll now)

Faruko commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

Meh, Link to the past its so much better than Wind Waker and so is Twilight Princess

but still a fair list, even thought i would still rank Awakening slightly higher, besides TP, i would say it has the best story out of Zelda games

Faruko commented on Mercedes Reports a Boost in Interest Since Ann...:

You dont even need to sell more cars, these ads are meant to create new potential consumers, cheap and (so far) reliable. Its the job of the next team to actually sell you the car, but you have already created a potential buyer, if they end up buying it or no, thats a whole other story

I dont have a problem at all with things like this as long as its done very well and feels part of the world they are into.

Faruko commented on Ubisoft Runs Another eShop Discount Bonanza in...:

Saving for Shovel Knight, im THIS close of getting ZombiU (in Chile, its 35 normal) and Ghost Recon, someone care to persuade me of getting ZombiU ? It is worth at this price point ?

JUST when a Steam Sale is going and got my WiiU 2 weeks ago, my wallet cant stand it anymore :(

Faruko commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

Nintendo was AMAZING, i do consider the "Digital Event" as a whole, but whatever, if thats the case, the treehouse live stuff was just the best thing ever, finally i felt that E3 was for the gamers and not for the media/press itself.

sony/MS did ok jobs too, but this was BY FAR one of the best E3s i can remember

PD: Please Nintendo, do it again, or maybe do the treehouse thing another time :( 1 year its too much

@kirk i dont get this "In my opinion the "Digital Event" needed to go on for about another half hour with maybe five or six more big games shown, mostly Wii U games", isnt what they have done with the "Nintendo Treehouse live" ?

After the Digital event, we got all the big games on that stream for about 6-7 hours, and the same today, and they have been showing big games, talking with developers, etc...

@PJR0cks Sorry if i care about shovelware games :( im clearly not good enough to be able to see what games are good and what are bad !! please enlight us with your knowledge !!!

Meanwhile ill keep playing MK8 (from the WiiU i just bought) and if i get tired of it, ill just turn on my PC and play Wolfestein, Dota 2, Battlefield 4, Starcraft 2, TF2, etc... :)

And all those amazing PS4/XB1 games Sony/MS showed ? i can play them on my PC, with better graphics and controls :)

win-win for me

Faruko commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:

It was an amazing conference for people who didnt had a WiiU imo (PC gamer here by the way), they showed A LOT of exciting things, very diverse too... Yoshi, captain toad, X, Splatoon, Smash, Zelda, etc... In fact qfter it ended i called the local game store and bought a Wii U, yes, this conference made me pull the trigger on that, it was THAT good imo

And not to mention i loved the treehouse stuff, livef that Nintendo didnt do a single one stuff, we actually got around 1 hour of X on !!!!

These are good times :)

Faruko commented on Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D Swings In At Nu...:

What an awful week, everything that its not a 3DS its dead in Japan, the 3DS its hitting aroun 12m LTD, but it will never reach the DS numbers (wich sold more than 100k for about 2 years EVERY WEEK)

when i say that it will never reach the DS numbers its not a bad thing, its just that the 3DS its doing great (even better if you see those Vita numbers and that Japan its a hanhelds land) ! but its a long shot from the monster that its the 3DS

Faruko commented on First Impressions: Donkey Kong Country: Tropic...:

In my opinion they made a great choice considering the WiiU position, they need to sell that thing, and DKCR sold A LOT MORE than Metroid games (somewhat like the 3 prime games combined) and considering that, DKC should be a good decision to push the WiiU sales. DKCR 5.5m sales, ALL Prime games combined, around 5.m

I would love a new Metroid game, but as of now, Nintendo needs to grow a base

And besides, not since the SNES DK has been on the spotlight, im happy with this, we had 4 METROID games BEFORE a REAL DK game, let DK shine a few more years before "freezing it again"

All the people that want metroid games, do not understand the place where the WiiU is, im not saying that Metroid wont sell a console, but to be honest it wont have the same impact as a DKC game, this game its just about making the "all audience pack" (how i say it) even bigger, 3D World, Pikmin 3, Mario Kart 8 and DKC

Faruko commented on First Impressions: The Legend of Zelda: The Wi...:

I know the WiiU its hardly next gen graphics (and believe, with my PC even the PS4 and One arent really impressive... they are hardly next gen graphics) but with the hardware they have they just do magic, i cant believe they are doing this graphics with such an old hardware, it does means that when you know how to develop a game, even if you have some hardware restrictions you can do things that are beyond beatiful

i dont have a WiiU, but with that they show in E3, im deff getting one on christmass (hopefully with a price reduction too)

Faruko commented on Feature: What We Expect From Nintendo's E3 Direct:

We really REALLY need a 50 or so price reduction, with the PS4 coming at 400, 350 its such a bad spot to be for the WiiU, 300 (or 275 if Nintendo somehow does it) should be a damn awesome price, more so with the idea of the WiiU being a "companion" console for the PS4/XDone

Faruko commented on Evidence of a Functional 3DS Flashcard Emerges:

It took them 2 years to crack it ? now thats interesting... you dont know what kind of "trick" Nintendo may pull in the future...

Brick my console now that i can afford games doesnt seems like the best idea

Faruko commented on Dying Light Set To Skip Wii U:

I dont like games skipping WiiU (not that matters to me, i have a PC too...) but Techland ? who cares about Techland, it WILL be a "Get X place, Kill that / Get this, Go back to X" game...

I dont care about Techland they have 0 CREATIVITY, awful developer

Faruko commented on Rumour: The Recent Wii U System Update Has Boo...:

This CAN be true, for a number of reasons

1) The CPU/GPU might have been underclocked for X reasons, and they just beef it up to its normal/OC speeds, wich i think mught be the best reasons, since i can hardly believe a CPU would run at 1.24GHz in this day and age... now 3GHz ? thats more like it to a console (i say to a console, since i have my i5 running at 4.5Ghz stable, pushing 5ghz if i put some cooling in it)

2) Power saving features: like somebody said, the numbers could have been on a power saving feature, and would mean that the CPU/GPU would have the wrong numbers (i hardly thing this is true, but hey, it could be...)

3) We dont know how exactly its the CPU/GPU build, it may be a powerhouse when it comes to "OC"

Faruko commented on 3DS Market Share For Early 2013 Shows Growth i...:

@rjejr Im pretty sure theres a team doing the new Zelda, not the 3DS or the WindWaker HD remake, and you dont think a Skylader kind of game on the WiiU would sell ? i find that VERY HARD TO BELIEVE, im pretty sure it will print money, with the TV series, Movies, games, toys, etc... those $2 dollar toys will make HUGE money for nintendo...

The pokemon games doesnt sell like crazy JUST because they are awesome games but because theres a trademark that its just as huge as the game itself

Faruko commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Changing the Media G...:

E3 its all about trying to please 3 kind of demographics (and never ever really doing a good jb at it) casual, hardcore, and shareholders. And for once EVERYTIME Nintendo did a ND, shares raise a little, wich actually they being on a roll in that case, not wasting money in this doesnt mean they do not have, but that they dont want to waste if there are better wyas to do it (im not saying they are, but hey first there was gasoline and after that diesel, now biogas, things change...)

Instead Nintendo, its separating those 3 in different smaller conferences for people that care about that, so... no longer we will have to watch an hour and a half, where 30 minutes were games that we care, 30 were crappy dancing games (with people dancing or doing like they play music, or reading a book...) and 30 about "the 3DS sales are... ZZZZZZ (people start to sleep)"

And let be honest, in this day and age where everything its so fast and information goes around in a matter of seconds, waiting a FULL year to announce some games its pretty stupid, E3 has being awful for around 3-4 years now, sure its nice since we get to hear the hype in the audience, seeing or new games and everything, but Nintendo Direct has been doing a pretty good job at that, no longer showing a new game that wuold not work on stage (Skyward Sword),

For me, im kind of happy with this decision, trying to please all 3 demographics in one big conference has always been a bad idea, but doing different more personal conference since like a good choice, wasting A LOT of money in 1 big conference was a good idea when the internet wasnt that big, and news didnt travel like today with smartphones, tablets, etc... that you can watch them in a matter of seconds, but now ? it seems stupid that companies keep on wasting money, when you can be doing something smaller that (again, with the help of how fast its information travelling this day...) will get the same kind of attention for A LOT LESS

if GRUMPY CAT manage to be this big with just a couple of photos and videos, you think nintendo wont with a small more personal conference ? Everything changes, and finding new ways, more efficiently to do so, its just how the world it is now

Faruko commented on Nintendo Won't Be Holding A Large-Scale Press ...:

@GeminiSaint Youre just juping into conclusions, for once, with the PS4/720 coming at this E3 people would be that interested in that and not only the games from nintendo, on the other hand, E3 has being only about trying to please 3 kind of demographics (and never ever really doing a good jb at it) casual, hardcore, and shareholders. And for once EVERYTIME Nintendo did a ND, shares raise a little, wich actually they being on a roll in that case, not wasting money in this doesnt mean they do not have, but that they dont want to waste if there are better wyas to do it (im not saying they are, but hey first there was gasoline and after that diesel, now biogas, things change...)

Instead Nintendo (cleverly enough in my opinion) separate those 3 in different smaller conferences for people that care about that, so... no longer we will have to watch an hour and a half, where 30 minutes were games that we care, 30 were crappy dancing games (with people dancing or doing like they play music, or reading a book...) and 30 about "the 3DS sales are...
