@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

@Laxeybobby

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)

@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

@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

@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

@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 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

@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 ?

@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

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

Faruko commented on Fantasy Life Makes Top 10 UK Chart Début as H...:

Not surprised at all, theres isnt a huge number of WiiU owners on UK to begin with, add that amost everyone that wanted Hyrule Warriors bought between this and last week and you can see why it fell off so fast

I sense that Smash Bros WiiU is the only WiiU game that would hold up quite well, i sense that Bayonetta 2 will face the same situation as Hyrule Warriors

Faruko commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

@luke88 MK8 has great online dont get me wrong, so does Battlefield 4 (on PC at least, even though its stil crashes like theres no tomorrow), but both games has some problems, one has people teleporting and the other bad hit detection & rubberbanding.

All im saying that its obvious there was going to be lag, and there are some other reviews (Destructoid) who said the online was great and the lag was minimun...

Lets just wait untill the game releases (or a patch hits) globally... maybe there are servers offline in this part of the world

Faruko commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

The lag was obvious, and its on almost every game out there... Destiny has some HORRIBLE netcode too, battlefield rubberbanding makes it unplayable, CoD with host advantage, etc...

Its a fair criticism but that everyone should expect.

And Mario Kart lags too... Those teleporting people all over the map, it doesnt happen very often but its there

Faruko commented on Nintendo Confirms Final Week Details For Its S...:

Got Tropical Freeze, on stage 6 and i can feel already Retro's Magic + David Wise music

im not overreacting if i say this is (so far) the best platformer ever made ? Adn easily the best game of the WiiU

if this keeps going weel its seriously my GOTY so far, Last of Us Remastered could be a contender too, great game but its a remake after all

Faruko commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

@NodesforNoids To be fair, the most "fair" review isnt the one with the lowest score, its another thing if you think that Polygon makes great reviews and you like them.

For me i always go to Destructoid, Escapist, NintendoLife/PushSquare & Eurogamer, if most of them have good scores then theres a high chance i would buy a game i want to

Like i said before, Gamestop gave this game an 8 ! (And everyone knows who bad they are when everything is WiiU related)

Faruko commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

What i was expecting, 7 its a great score (and 5 its average), im getting it ! more games for my WiiU are never a bad thing.

i have never EVER played a musou game, so it will be a first for me

Gamespot actually gave it an 8 O_o

And this is with the New 3DS releasing in just a month, im pretty sure almost everyone is waiting for that and only those who dont care about it are getting a 3DS now, so those numbers should be MUCH higher (which will show on October 11)
