FragRed commented on Nintendo Is Planning Its Own Loot Crate-Style ...:

@readyletsgo I think that would be a great idea, and the wonderful thing about today's gaming generation is that there is a keen interest in all things retro - which is the reason for such a huge amount of old games getting released and retro consoles getting remade.

Funstock is an awesome site, like you I get weekly emails and am always trying to work out how best not to overspend.



FragRed commented on Nintendo Is Planning Its Own Loot Crate-Style ...:

@readyletsgo Considering the whole idea of Europe is to be a "one" or a "single entity" when it comes to trade etc, it really doesn't make sense how we still struggle to actually achieve such things. Especially when all my gaming orders on Amazon appear to be dispatched from not the UK warehouse.



FragRed commented on Nintendo Is Planning Its Own Loot Crate-Style ...:

@juliobrand Wow that's actually quite cool that you still get newly produced Master Systems. Though I would perhaps question the quality.

I want to get a Master System at some point, remember playing these back in the day. The one we had came with the snail maze game built in.

@readyletsgo No, I was human resources for a county wide organisation that receives our income from the government. But either way they screwed me over.

I wish the whole or Ireland would be included. It makes no sense, it's all right next door to us. Only a tiny bit of water separate us.



FragRed commented on Freedom Planet is Speeding Onto the Wii U Soon:

I hope this comes to Europe at some point, I find we often wait way too long for localisation on indie games for Nintendo systems. That needs to change by the time the NX launches.

I'll just have to play something else I guess. Just as well Rare Replay is out next week.



FragRed commented on Nintendo NX Might Be The First Social VR Platf...:

@bluedogrulez Why wouldn't big third party developers and publishers not know what the NX is? It's almost certain that the rumours were true of Nintendo showcasing the NX behind closed doors to third parties.

It takes time to port games or even create exclusive gamed for a new system, and as it's being revealed to the public next year I am guessing there's gonna be a bunch of first and third party games to announce and show alongside it.



FragRed commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

I don't see Square Enix wanting to produce three different versions of the game, that's understandable as it's resources they'd rather put elsewhere, especially if said resources were to be on a yet to even be revealed system like the NX.

I look at this as a good reason to speculate that the NX, what ever it is, is far closer to the PS4 in terms of specs than the 3DS or Wii U. In fact I'd it were Wii U specs or similar, then I'm sure there would be no problem porting it to both.



FragRed commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

Did someone actually think that Nintendo would not bring Super Smash Bros to the NX? They do one game per system so of course it will come out, just like there will be a Mario Kart, a Zelda and likely a Splatoon.

However there isn't any chance of it being an early release. Nintendo takes their time producing games and big hitters like Super Smash Bros and Mario Kart are not gonna be produced over night. So I wouldn't expect to see them for at least the first or maybe second year of the NX life cycle.



FragRed commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

The question we have to ask ourselves is whether Nintendo has actually learned from its mistakes with the Wii U when it comes to launching the NX, what ever that maybe. If they want people to buy the console then they are going to need that third party support.

Whomever takes over the post of Mr Iwata will have a lot to do between the time they become President of Nintendo and the reveal of the NX when ever that takes place.



FragRed commented on Nintendo Quality Of Life Patent Applications A...:

I can't understand how anyone made the jump from a patent for Quality of Life to a dedicated gaming platform like the NX. Seriously, you can tell just by looking at those diagrams that there's nothing to do with gaming in this thing.

It just feels like another excuse for a NX rumour.



FragRed commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

I hope this is true. And it doesn't necessarily mean it won't do backwards compatibility. Could be done the way Xbox One is and use your ipad or Android tablet as the gamepad for games that use it.

But at the end of the day Nintendo would be opening the doors to third party developers properly with a system that is, hopefully easy to port for. Hell it may even become lead console if it's easy and powerful enough.

I already have a PS4 and today got the stupidly big Xbox One but I play Nintendo as my primary console of choice. In fact if Nintendo and Sony or Microsoft release games at the same time, it'll be Nintendo I buy day one and the others I'll wait for a price drop.



FragRed commented on Nintendo Offers Humble Thanks For Condolences ...:

There's a part of me that still doesn't believe this is real, that it's all some kind of joke and we'll all be laughing about it when Mr Iwata shows up in the next Direct or shareholder meeting alive and well.

I don't know if it will ever fully sink in with me. I always shed a tear when seeing these articles. :(



FragRed commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

And now Nintendo will think twice before trying their hand at mature games in the future I fear, which will be bad news.

Still at least Fatal Frame looks promising... right? I haven't seen any previous for it yet so I hope thats a good thing.



FragRed commented on Video: 3D Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Trailer Confirm...:

A lot of people so far upset it doesn't have download play. I totally forgot there was such a thing as download play. Now I feel disappointed it won't have it as I don't think I know anyone who'll buy the game but would have played co-op.



FragRed commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

It'll come late 2017. Third party developers need 2 years to port video games, and Nintendo needs a good strong first party line up this time round.

Plus Nintendo typically reveals a new console one year, showcases it the next and then releases it during that November.

However, with all the interest the NX is now receiving across the Internet, I guarantee we will know what it is before the end of the year - someone will leak the development kit details just like with Sony and Microsoft.



FragRed commented on Video: Capcom Shares Footage of Resident Evil ...:

@Cyberbotv2 I already do have a PS4 but if I had the option I'd have got these games on a Nintendo system simply to support Nintendo themselves.

But you are right, Nintendo messed this up and I don't know whether they'll understand or learn from these mistakes. I think they assume first party is all you need.

I don't have many PS4 games as right now it's all pretty bland and boring.



FragRed commented on Video: Capcom Shares Footage of Resident Evil ...:

Nintendo really needs to get its act together and actually get these third party titles on their consoles. I don't care if Reggie thinks their first party games are better than third party, this is one of the games that should come to the Wii U. I mean it originated on the Gamecube.



FragRed commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

I'm shocked that Nintendo are still bringing Fatal Frame V to the west. It didn't do well in Japan from what I understand and apart from a single short session showing it off during E3, Nintendo don't seem to be promoting it much at all.
