FragRed commented on Nintendo Focusing on Multiplayer Fun at the 20...:

When I read that there was an official UK Nintendo store coming, I got excited thinking it was going to be a permanent high street shop. Should never get my hopes up like that before actually reading the article.

FragRed commented on Capcom Hoping For "Aggressive Digital Download...:

I don't see Capcom producing an HD remake of Resident Evil 2. They would essentially have to remake the game from scratch unlike the first game.

Expect HD remakes to mean "slight upgrades to games we know we can get on sale in a matter of a few months".

@ricklongo I think its good not to do a whole weekend. Look at what happened with Evolve when they tried that - people got bored pretty quick by the time it was released. And with Splatoon only having 3 minute rounds, you could arguably say people will get bored much faster.

FragRed commented on Nintendo Has Unannounced Wii U Titles Which Wi...:

There's already a fair few games coming out, so I'm really excited to see what Nintendo has under wraps. I am expecting one of the Nintendo Garage teams to make an announcement of a new IP like with Splatoon.

FragRed commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush Fails to Brea...:

I'm not too shocked as Kirby from what I understand, has never been a big seller in Europe. However, I hear Splatoon has become the number one selling Wii U game on Amazon in here in the UK so I have high hopes for that.

FragRed commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

I get the different time slots they chose to do the sessions, allowing Nintendo to test the stress the servers in different regions during different times of the day. However, as it's been said already multiple times, it was short notice and as such I oy got to do the 8 to 9 session. Ideally another round would be good but one could argue that too many sessions would potentially bore people before it launched - I'm thinking of what happened with Evolve to name one such title.

FragRed commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

@Grumblevolcano I agree with you on those points. What worries me is that if Nintendo are focusing on what is coming out the second half of 20015, which is actually a lot of potentially decent titles for the Wii U at least, people may start saying that Nintendo are abandoning the system next year because they haven't announced anything and the NX will be talked about next year etc etc. So I hope they at least talk about some games for next year.

@Decapre We know only a couple of rumours about the NX so what you basing this on is beyond me. Also Nintendo have a load of games coming out for the Wii and likely a lot of unannounced titles for the 3DS/New 3DS so talking about their next system what ever it may be, this year would detract from potential sales.

FragRed commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

@Grumblevolcano Both Splatoon and Smash Bros will make an appearance for sure. We know theres loads coming out for those games, free DLC for Splatoon adding new modes and paid DLC for Smash. I hope they don't take up too much time because with Nintendo seem to sticking with an hour maximum for the Direct, it would either mean other games being bumped off the list or made significant smaller.

FragRed commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

Star Fox will be a big attraction for sure this year but given that last year all they showed was a tech demo using N64 assets, I am kinda worried about what how big the game will end up being. I wouldn't be surprised if it were to be an eShop game as oppose to a full price retail title.

Retro have 2 games in the works I think, perhaps I am wrong on that and the other was a rumour. Hoping for Diddy Kong Racing to be one of the two, though I doubt it with Mario Kart 8 being still pushed with DLC.

I can see the NX being shown off before E3 next year, like Microsoft and Sony did. If for nothing else then purely because theres going to be a lot of leaks and that is why the 3DS was revealed sooner than had been planned.

FragRed commented on Konami Removes Its Listing from the New York S...:

@DESS-M-8 I have read that too about Nintendo interested in buying Atlus but I just don't see Nintendo splashing the cash to do so. I mean this is the same company who won't even properly market their own consoles and games on TV but instead rely on a fee on children's channels and adverts on video game related websites where most people who view them are already aware of the games existence, such as Nintendo Life.

FragRed commented on Konami Removes Its Listing from the New York S...:

@MarzoriuM On paper that doesn't sound like a bad idea, especially for the launch of the NX, whatever it maybe. However in principle it won't happen. Konami has other business ventures outside of gaming and Capcom may well be turning things around with 2 very successful digital download only titles - albeit both Resident Evil games. On top of all that, Nintendo is not one for buying third party developers, even if said developer went bankrupt and their IPs were up for grabs, I see Nintendo just sitting there and watching others snap them up.

FragRed commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

@Gamer83 With DeNA now firmly on board I would imagine Nintendo's infrastructure for all consoles going forward, and especially with NX as it will be a brand new system, digital will be something Nintendo can easily and heavily push. However Nintendo aren't exactly known for their cheap 1st party games when it comes to being digital.

FragRed commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

@liljmoore My thinking is that Nintendo have become so conservative with their money that they have decided that they must pull money out of the marketing department and rely on the random TV commercial here and there and advertising on video gaming websites where everyone already knows it's existence. And Nintendo have said last year they don't plan to make use of TV as much anymore for promoting their products which further suggests less marketing money will be spent.

FragRed commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

@IceClimbers True, they did say that about Nintendo dropping the Wii and release a system on par with the Xbox 360/PS3. However, Nintendo did kinda screw it up because aside from the people who follow Nintendo and video gaming websites, they did a shockingly bad job at marketing the console. It could have easily sold so much better, but they literally did a reversal on the way the Wii had been heavily promoted on TV etc.

FragRed commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

@liljmoore I agree, that is what E3 is for and I am guessing they chose not to show it off in the last Direct because they wanted to surprise us with how much it has improved visually and gameplay wise. What we saw last year I think was essentially the PS3/Xbox 360 game that was in development. Now Nintendo has been on board and helping to make the game, I am hoping they have bought it up to their quality threshold.

FragRed commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

@wizzgamer A lot of people don't seem to want Nintendo to create a console that is something different to the competitors, they want an ordinary controller and specs that can at least be on par, but ideally more powerful, than the PS4.

But Nintendo saying that the next console will change the way we play games, suggests it will be different though I am concerned about the specs.

FragRed commented on Digital Foundry Assesses The Legend of Zelda: ...:

I personally have no worries about Nintendo remaking games, especially GCN titles as they don't need to take resources away from the making of new games, as with the case of Wind Waker, can be done in 6 months and it helps fill out the Wii U release slate.

FragRed commented on Treyarch Isn't Working on Call of Duty: Black ...:

@ikki5 Somehow I have doubts that the NX (assuming it is a Wii U successor) will be taken too seriously by the big third party developers/publishers unless Nintendo can do something to attract them back to porting games to it, and the people who buy the console support the third party games and not just Nintendo's own 1st party ones.

FragRed commented on Take on 3D Streets of Rage 2 With a Pal:

@Angelic_Lapras_King Maybe but I always feel this game was produced with 2 players in mind, it always plays better than way, like pretty much any beat 'em up game. And if most people play Streets of Rage in 2 player mode, then I would argue, as I am sure Sega do, that there'd be a loss of sales if only one person needed the game.
