Faruko commented on NINJHAX Exploit Is All About Nintendo 3DS Home...:

I like this guy, of course, theres so much he can do stop people finding exploits to his exploits for piracy, but he is trying the best to make the 3DS a much more open system, which for me, its great.

good read, hope developers can do some amazing and cool stuff with this



Faruko commented on Bayonetta 2 Falls From UK Charts After One Week:

Why would they print more copies IF retailers arent demanding them ? you really think a store would ask 50+ copies of BAYONETTA for the WIIU in the UK ? you do what they ask you, this game was never supposed to sell, the first one sold like crap considering its HUGE fan base, why would retailers risk it again ?

Some people need a reality check :p



Faruko commented on Nintendo 64x64: ISS 98:

If it wasnt for ISS Deluxe on the snes, this qould be the best football game ever created, and i love football and football games !



Faruko commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

@Mario_Fart Steam machines look good on paper, but i would go for a normal PC imo, even if they are somewhat more expensive

As a base of PC it depends on resolution, what do you expect from games, etc... I have a 280x + 8gb Ram + i5 2550k and ive yet to find a game that i can run at mostly maxes, 60fps and 1080p i would even say a 270x if you can reduce some quality (which would still look better than a ps4 game, after all a downgraded 270x its the comparable Ps4 GPU which is around 30% less powerful), for example (but i would go for an Nvidia card if i can, they cost a littlw more, but some games have been using nvidia property tech to make games run better, but its nothing to write home about anyway id you want an AMD one)

Not to mention the ps4/xb1 have cpus used for the tablet market, albeit with more cores

If you ever need some help on PC specs, give me a DM

Look at this, i know its a chinesse machine but its a way to compare specs (to be fair, i own a chinesse car and after 3 years, 0 problems :p)



Faruko commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

@Mario_Fart if thats the case, get a PC, one steam deal and you recovered the entire investment that would be getting PS+ for its games (which on the ps4 its been remarkably bad, especially the sales)

But yeah, its a shame that Nintendo games dont fall in price, like at all

I do will say that there have been some decent sales on the WiiU (for Sony it seems like the ps4 never released, as their sales have been MUCH better on the ps3), but still nothing compares to a steam sale



Faruko commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

The amount of grim and doom in this thread its amazing

It seems that Nintendo its pretty much dead and theres no other way around

And there are some prople coming up with some of the most absurds arguments ive read and some numbers that just dont simply add (smash not hitting a Million ? HAHAHAHA and Mario Kart 8 legs dying ? HAHAHAHAHAHA)

Some people obviously think Microsoft and Sony only do gaming systems arent they ? I mean Sony its in such an amazing situation that hey had to sell their VAIO brand, they almost had to go out of the smartphone tech, their TVs arent selling any better

Microsoft with the whole Windows8/WindowsPhone fiasco (which they are finally working out with the impressive Windows10) have loss more money than ever, they bought Nokia and they let them to die... Wut ?

Dont come here and make us think that Nintendo is the only one in finnancial problems, because that one its CLEARLY Sony, especially because for them PS brand its mostly about recognition, because its practically a non-factor when it comes to money foe them

And yeah, my piss poor PS4 is gathering so much dust, that i dont know when was the last time i turned it on, my almost 3 years pc can do everything the ps4/xb1 can, only with better graphics, frames AND much more cheaper games, i have even bought games that look/plays worse on the PS4 JUST to justify it !, bloodborne please i need you NOW !!



Faruko commented on Bayonetta 2 Kicks Into The Top 10 in UK Charts:

Thats quite amazing considering UK as a non-wiiu country AND with Fifa, Destiny, Evil Within, etc...

Bayonetta 2 its a super niche game, it wasnt going to do any better i think

But we are missing the eshop sales !



Faruko commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

Bayonetta 1 sold less than 1.5 million lifetime and that was after massive price drops in about 10 times the userbase. It only sold a couple hundred thousand at launch.

So Nintendo wasn't going to print 10 million copies to flood retail stores with stock. Nor were retail stores going to reserve 100 copies per store just to have them sit around waiting for a price drop, not when the Wii U user base is so small and with Bayonetta 1's sales history.

I pre order because i knew about this, if you cna find it, get it on store, if not theres always the digital edition



Faruko commented on's £180 Wii U Bundle with Bayonetta...:

@ikki5 they should get rid of both and do a 500gb OR get rid of the 32gb, at this point if you buy a WiiU you buy it with an HDD, and the deluxe its more expensive

The "deluxe promotion" its coming to an end, and i saved quite a bit of money (which was put to an external self-powered 1Tb HDD) by going for the 8gb



Faruko commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:

@MoonKnight7 Not to mention handhelds are the king of Japan, while consoles are in the west, im sure there are a lot of 3DS gathering dust in the USA because of that, or they got it to play that 1 game (Pokemon) and thats it (not because the lack of games, because if the 3DS had problems thats not one of them), the West is not that big into handhelds



Faruko commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:


Some Dynasty Warriors numbers to take into consideration
Hyrule Warriors - 190,000 (8 days) WiiU
Dynasty Warriors 5 - 150,000 (4 months) PS2
Dynasty Warriors 6 - 220,000 (10 months) PS3/360
Dynasty Warriors 7 - 220,000 (9 months) PS3/360
thats how big 190k is for a Warriors game in the West, other games took them MONTHS to sell what HW sold in 8 days (not to mention the install base its a lot less)



Faruko commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:

@BaffleBlend It went against Fifa 14, Evil Within, Destiny & Borderlands

considering that, those are great numbers, not to mention Japan its A LOT MORE into handhelds than the USA, the vita its still SOMEWHAT relevant in Japan were as here its just dead weight, on the other hand, the PS4 its going stupidly strong in the USA but in Japan its dead... its selling even less than the WiiU



Faruko commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:

@Laxeybobby You have never seen the numbers of a Warriors game dont you ?

The best selling game in the franchise sold around 2m on the PS2, which has an install base od 10 TIMES THE WIIU

Also, the popularity of Smash and Mario Kart its infinite times higher, lets just say that MKWii solsd 2 times the life time sales of all Warrior games... Combined, Smash Brawl sold 12m on the WiiU

Hyrule Warriors selling 190k on a console that its on life support on the US its A LOT, and give us hopes that Bayo2 could sell decently

Ill be in shock if this game manage to sell 1m copies (thats a 10% attach rate), reastically it should sell somewhere between 450-650k, 800k would be godlike



Faruko commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:

@AdanVC USA is microsoft's land, if the XB1 (and Destiny) isnt selling better than the PS4 then the XB1 would be dead by now

I know the PS4 was selling much better than the XB1 on USA but that wasnt going to stay like that, it was bound to change



Faruko commented on Nintendo 64x64: Quake II:

Im a Quake and Doom fan so i had to have this when i got my 64, it was a great game in its own right with a new campaing that was full of new stuff

The only problem were the horrible animations and the need for pinpoint accuracy on a not so pinpoint control (if that makes sense hahaha)
Leagues behind its PC brother, but a great game in its own right



Faruko commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mission: Impossible:

@Genesaur i like that they put more "unknow" games, or you want the typical games that has been talked, reviewed, etc... Till death ? Besides, they have already post much of the bset games on the system



Faruko commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mission: Impossible:

This game was the doggeyoopsiepoodlepoopie, loved it, a gift from my parents after i got my braces as a kid... It was very rough around the edges, but with such a charm



Faruko commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

@MoonKnight7 Platinum Games do poorly because they do, not because the place they are... their CEO even said that he would rate the sales of their games "a C or a D", their biggest game is Bayonetta which sold around 1.2 million (Im not counting Rising, because that would sell only because the MGS name), i dont know how it would fare Bayonetta 2 (30-40% i guess?), but its the only game in their history have a sequel... which says a lot about their sales

So Nintendo knew that they were getting a game that sold slightly more than 1 million copies on more than 100 million consoles (only 1.2% of the user base actually bought the game) and put it on a console with less than 10m (im assuming the WiiU is around the 8m MAYBE 9m by now ?). The projected sales should be around 100k, less if the typical "Nintendo gamers dont buy hardcore games" (a very bad estimate, but estimate at least

Investors wont be naive enough to think it would sell as much as the original, let alone half of its numbers, they put as much money as they think this game would sale, im guessing between 350k-450k, 500k would be god-like



Faruko commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

@IceClimbers Good point but Shantae has always been a "Nintendo game", Scram Kitty its a new IP so its a mystery on what system was going to be release, Stealth Inc 1 was never released on a Nintendo console, but its on PS3, 360, PS4, XB1 & Steam...

I agree that some games could be exclusive because the lack of some games makes it much more appealing, but Stealth Inc was a comercial success, there was never a doubt that the sequel would sell



Faruko commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

@MoonnKnight7 Im dead sure this game was a response to the lack of "hardcore" games on the WiiU as a way to spice things a little bit, you know, they know, their mothers know that this game was going to sell "bad"... hell games like Fire Emblem Awakening "only" need 250k to be called succesful, why wont be the case with this game ? You cant say because different budgets, because we dont know the actual numbers.

While Nintendo investors could be angry at bad sales, why should Platinum's be ? they get their money long before the game is even finished (thats the idea of a exclusive deal, or publishing in this case), you are supposed to be "happy" with the lack of sales on other systems (or the game in general) because you already got your money.

Just like Stealth inc 2, its a WiiU exclusive because im 100% sure Nintendo put the money for it, theres no other way around, why would you neglect the PS4 and the XB1 if thats not the case ?



Faruko commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

@MoonKnight7 and what was your estimate ? the first Bayoneta did 1 million in a MUCH MORE HEALTHY enviroment, the PS3 and the 360, im not saying those numbers are good or bad, but im pretty sure Platinum & Nintendo were aware of the situation and the risks of those games.

And Japan as a whole "sucks" for console gaming nowadays, everything is Mobile & Handheld, and handhelds are losing steam



Faruko commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Begins North Am...:

Cant wait ! the WiiU is finally getting all the love it deserved, Bayonetta 2 in a few weeks, Smash after that, Captain Toad... Hyrule Warriors was just released

hope Nintendo pair this with a couple of great VC games (both Castlevania are already a very good showing :) ) & some eShop titles
