FragRed commented on Retailer Lists Super Smash Bros. Wii U for 21s...:

@Mega719 After the recent frenzy across the internet due to the download codes for Smash Bros, do you really think either Sonic Boom or Watch Dogs are going to worry Nintendo?

And remember, Nintendo games traditionally far outsell third party games on the same platform.



FragRed commented on Stealth Inc 2 Sneaking Onto the Wii U eShop on...:

Seen people on other sites say they will wait for it to come to the PS4. Apparently they think Nintendo could never have "exclusive" games. Bayonetta 2 springs to mind.

Though these same people often think Nintendo’s first party games will go multi platform soon too. It's all a big conspiracy.



FragRed commented on This Adorable Yoshi Plush Soft Toy Is Now Avai...:

It looks cool and all, but I hate collecting things like this. My room is a mess as it is due to all the things I have collected over the years

But I don't think I have ever registered any games other than Mario Kart 8, and that was only so I could get the free game. Don't even know how many stars I have.



FragRed commented on Rumour: Concept Work from Former Next Level Ga...:

@Splatom I already had a large bag of crisps at the ready. Good timing.

I don't think means anything, I would imagine artists at these development studios are always coming up with concept designs, even if it be for something that the studio have no plans to ever work on. Could merely be for something to show to future employers.



FragRed commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

The problem with Watch_Dogs... is everything. Personally not a fan of it and judging by comments on other sites and the large number of cheap copies in shops, neither are a lot of other people.

Also not a fan of Ubisoft, though perhaps a change in company name is in order with the way they screw over customers.

I'm sure after their Dance 2015 or what ever it's called, is released, Ubisoft will be saying "It's the last casual game we will be releasing on the Wii U" due to low sales.



FragRed commented on The Japanese New 3DS Packaging Is Both Cute An...:

I like it, and on the shelves it will definitely stand out which what it is all about. But by the time it comes to Europe it'll probably look dull in comparison. Plus we won't get the charger either - it will come separate like with the XL.



FragRed commented on Nintendo Direct on 4th September to Reveal Mor...:

Sometimes I question Nintendo, and their interest in the European market. Sometimes they give us loads of offers and special editions not available in North America, and then other times like now we don't get our own Direct or even a real release date. And with games like Captain Toad's Treasure, we won't even see it until next year!!



FragRed commented on Weirdness: In An Alternate Universe Danny DeVi...:

@ejvirzi Theres a lot of problems with the movie, the design of characters is certainly one of the major ones though.

But to be honest, despite how much that picture at the top freaks me out, thinking about it Danny DeVito certainly does seem like a good choice.

Wonder if Nintendo had a number one choice to be Luigi? And maybe, Nintendo should look to produce a proper Super Mario movie in the future.



FragRed commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

Okay, I'm not a fan of the new Resident Evil games, they're nothing compared to the original. However, not releasing this on a console with 45 million install base, and growing by the day is just absolutely stupid. I even hear it sold well on the Wii U which has only a 6 million install base.

So where's the logic?

I really hope I wake up one day soon to the news Capcom has been outright purchased by Nintendo. Nintendo needs third party support. They also need more first & second party developers to bulk out their game libraries for the current and future consoles.



FragRed commented on Reaction: Picking Apart The New Nintendo 3DS A...:

@Moshugan I like the way you think :)

Assuming the next handheld Nintendo releases will be part of the DS family, I too believe it will be essentially a more powerful version of the new 3DS only with something innovative. Its what Nintendo does with their consoles.



FragRed commented on Reaction: Picking Apart The New Nintendo 3DS A...:

@Moshugan I have seen people buying 3DS games thinking they will work on the old DS handhelds. I can see where you are coming from, because unless Nintendo does something to the packaging of games to try and reduce that problem, its always going to happen to a degree.



FragRed commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

@aaronmclaren I guess the reason is that the new exclusives couldn't be made to work on the original hardware, which is partly why the CPU was upgraded. And as said by @SkywardLink98, the DSi did the same thing.

And to be fair, I have seen parents in shops get confused by DS and 3DS when buying games so it's always going to happen regardless what Nintendo does.



FragRed commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

There sure are a lot of negative comments on here. I for one am happy about this new system, but perhaps thats because I will be upgrading from the original 3DS.

I see these New 3DS handhelds with the slightly improved hardware as a stop gap to try and keep the sales of the system alive while Nintendo work on the true successor, what ever that maybe.



FragRed commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I needed a reason to upgrade from my original 3DS, and now I have it. But the fact Nintendo UK have said it won't be released over here until 2015 AT THE EARLIEST, suggests that it will be holidays next year we will see it or beginning 2016. :(



FragRed commented on Miyamoto States That Nintendo Is Sticking With...:

I think Nintendo should certainly continue to introduce innovative ideas with their consoles, but not at the expense of researching into more powerful systems that compete with both Xbox and PlayStation.

Nintendo use to say they don't compete with either Microsoft or Sony, but I think now they have to compete. Especially if its core gamers they are after.

And if Nintendo are planning, which I assume they are, to release another handheld, they need to really look at what the market is now that so many own tablets and phones.



FragRed commented on Wii U Shooter Splatoon Almost Starred Mario As...:

This game looks epic and is personally, the best game shown at E3 this year. And I am pleased Nintendo didn't stick Mario in it. Nintendo needs more new IPs like this. Especially if they want to attract the core gamers.



FragRed commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

I am glad the only thing available this week was the free DLC for Mario Kart 8. Just spent far too much buying a PS4 and games. But I still have money for Hyrule Warriors. Nintendo comes first.



FragRed commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

I don't see this as a surprise. Actually I'm amazed it took Activision this long to make such an announcement. Personally I don't see this as a problem for the Nintendo consoles. Anyone who'd want to buy a COD game would do so on the next generation systems. I doubt they'd look at the Wii U as a good system to buy such games on.

However, with that being said, I do question whether Nintendo will ever be able to pull back third party support, not just for the Wii U but in general.



FragRed commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

I don't think Revelations sold well on the Nintendo platforms so I can't see them trying a second time, unless Nintendo buys up Capcom... Hopefully it will happen before the end of the Wii U.



FragRed commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

@CaptainToad It worries me that with the game only have mere months left before the year ends to see a release, that Ubisoft have yet to show anything for it in terms of gameplay on the Wii U. But if they did cancel it, I think it would have been said by now. I certainly don't see it happening after this statement in which they make such an announcement of it happening.



FragRed commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

All these publishers are simply going to wait until Nintendo announces their next home console from now on I think. The Wii U has not been the hardcore system Nintendo and the publishers had hoped for. It'll be interesting to see if Nintendo tries again with the hardcore audience with the next system.
