FragRed commented on Reaction: Nintendo's Drop in Momentum Is A Big...:

I keep hearing people talk about the idea of a hybrid system for Nintendo's next console, both here and other sites over the past few months. I have to say that honestly I can't see it being plausible for a system to be produced in the masses at a cheap enough cost for it to sell in the millions while either making Nintendo a profit or a small loss with each unit sold.

I also don't believe the technology for such a console is available, or again cheap enough for such a system to be worth producing. As far as I see things, what ever console Nintendo produce next can't be the same power as the Wii U, it HAS to be more in line with the PS4 and Xbox One to really get any real market share and get the third party support back. Without that, they will end up with the same problems they do now.

FragRed commented on PDP GameCube-Styled Wired Fight Pad For Wii U ...:

@WaveBoy I can't see Nintendo delaying it until 2015 somehow. Firstly they have just done a huge amount of hyping for this game through tournaments, allowing people to demo it at shops, trailers for new characters etc. They would be stupid to now delay it until early 2015, it would ruin the whole hype they built up.

And if Sakurai wants to add new characters, this would be perfect for free DLC content. That always goes down well and helps keep the game selling.

@IxC Yeah, or there was, I remember trying it. Shocking I know, but unless I had a mad dream, there definitely is a demo for DuckTales Remastered. Must have been released when there was still hope from third party developers for the Wi U.

FragRed commented on NES Remix Titles Coming in Physical Version to...:

@Captain_Gonru What you have said is all certainly true. And yeah I can see people holding off getting the SNES Remix digitally if they think a physical bundle will be available in the future. But then there are always those who just have to get the game right away, and those who will go for it simply because it is digital. And I would say that how well a SNES Remix 1 & 2 are sold digitally depends how well priced the physical copy of NES Remix 1 & 2 is. If more than getting both digitally, then that may persuade people just to get all future titles in the series digital over physical. So many variables, we will just have to wait and see what happens. Exciting ;)

Your brain exercise is a good one. I am with you that producing the N64 Remix games would just be too much work and complicated. Plus the price would have to go up to justify the work gone into them. And we can forget about a GC Remix altogether. Also I just think that the games produced on the N64 and later are altogether a different type from those on the SNES, NES and Game Boy. I just don't see them working together as well. Also I don't think there is the vast number of N64 games Nintendo own or easily have access to that they did on earlier platforms to be able to produce 2 Remix titles.

FragRed commented on Sonic Boom Release Dates Are Confirmed for Wii...:

I wanted to love this game when Sonic Boom was first announced, but after seeing gameplay footage it just looks far too slow and, well to be honest, boring. But that is just my opinion and I hope to be proved wrong and I am sure others will certainly enjoy it.

FragRed commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Heads to Capcom For Rel...:

There are a fair few people here who are saying Nintendo should/will buy Capcom. That would be pretty awesome and Nintendo needs more 1st party studios for the Wii U, 3DS and what ever future systems they release.

Times are changing and with the rise in costs of video games, it seems the big developers/publishers are less inclined to port games over to Nintendo systems unless Nintendo personally help fund it. This is why I think Nintendo needs to start buying out or starting up developers.

Capcom would be a good first buy but don't think it will ever happen.

FragRed commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

Ah when I first saw the article I was really happy and was excited that he was to be producing games for Nintendo again. But then my heart sank when I realised they were focusing on mobile games. Just like many other start ups now days.

FragRed commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

There is something seriously wrong with the way Nintendo moderate their service. I feel like Nintendo think about all the most extreme things that could happen and use it as an excuse as to why it needs disabling/banning.

FragRed commented on New Fatal Frame Will Be Spooking The Wii U In ...:

Of course it will come to the west. Firstly Nintendo needs every game it can get on their systems. Just because it has not been mentioned doesn't mean it won't happen. I imagine it will come out next year so not to interfere with he sales of games like Bayonetta, Super Smash Bros and Hyrule Warriors.

Also if they are producing a Hollywood movie adaptation of the franchise (don't get me started on why it's not a Japanese adaptation, bad decision) then I really can't see there not being a localised release of the game.

FragRed commented on Nintendo and Koei Tecmo Hosting Fatal Frame Br...:

Nintendo are hugely odd in their ideas and localising of games. However, Nintendo also know that the Wii U is in real big problems when it comes to video games right now so I am sure they wouldn't miss an opportunity to add to the title and hopefully sell a few more consoles in the west.

By the way, I have seen one or two people mention that Nintendo either owns or part owns the franchise. I thought it was available on other systems, so when did this come about?

And this is the reason why living in the UK sucks. Can you imagine anyone over here doing anything like that? Even our so called 'Sales' aren't much more than small decrease in pricing on Nintendo first party.

FragRed commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

This was a real hard poll to choose from. I went with Ocarina of Time in the end. Don't know what it is, but at that point in time Nintendo were on form with their 3D releases in games. Think they understood the evolution from 2D to 3D much better than anyone else.

That said I really loved Wind Waker HD.

FragRed commented on This Retro City Rampage Map Should Be Handy If...:

@Plutonian I just bought a PlayStation and am seeking out original GTA for it. Not keen on GTA 2 mind.

I have yet to buy anything from Nintendo's WiiWare or eShop simply because I am worried that if my system breaks I lose everything. I may have to buy it on another system or my PC.

FragRed commented on Controversy Arises at U.S. Pokémon Nationals ...:

He knew that his ball was illegal. You don't win 3 times without knowing a thing or two about Pokemon. And I personally believe that the judges should ban anyone who has an illegal ball regardless of whether it has any effect on the Pokemon being used or not.

As soon as you start letting little things like that slip through the nets, people will try and push things further and further in the hopes of getting away with it.

FragRed commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Summe...:

I would definetely get a fair few of these titles, though perhaps not so much the Super Smash Bros game as I am getting it on the Wii U. However I really cannot afford any until probably next year. Far too many other awesome games I have to buy from Nintendo.

FragRed commented on Weirdness: The Peculiar Questions of a Typical...:

@Savino That maybe true, but I think the Japanese shareholders are very different to the way ours are. Just look at the one guy who says that they are Nintendo fans and would love to be given video games etc during the AGM. You would never see such commitment or understanding of a company over here from our shareholders.

Money money money and how much can I sell the business for as soon as someone offers is what we get.

The only titles here that I am truly excited about, and have pre-ordered, are those either developed or published by Nintendo. I will wait and see how Watch Dogs does in the reviews before taking action in purchasing it. And I got bored with the Lego games a long time ago.

FragRed commented on Shigeru Miyamoto States There Are "A Few" Zeld...:

When I read the heading for this article, I was really hoping that there was to be other unannounced Zelda games in the pipeline. Am happy that there is to be another 3DS title and I get that it's a lot easier to create games for than the Wii U, but was still hoping that there was more to come on the home system.

FragRed commented on Nintendo Highlights Hundreds of Developers Wor...:

@siavm I totally agree with you. Year three will not be a good year for AAA third party games. However, baring in mind Nintendo already said that they announce the next system in about 2 or 3 years I could see that developers will hold off until something new comes along.

The thing with Nintendo is, it has been a very long time since they had true great AAA third party support. People purchase Nintendo for Nintendo first party as a whole. And it appears to be that their most successful hardware always seems to be the ones that are less powerful than competitors, from the Game Boy to the Wii and the DS/3DS.

FragRed commented on Video: Lana Brings Some Deadly Magic to Hyrule...:

Looking at those videos, Lana looks the more interesting character to play than Zelda.

Normally these type of games don't interest me, but I have this on pre-order and just keep getting more and more excited with each new video!!

I came across Shaun and his site through Instagram when Nintendo Life posted a picture of a Game Boy he modded for them. Been really interested in purchasing one, never had one when I was a child. But not sure if I should buy the original Game Boy or wait till he starts doing Game Boy Pocket.

FragRed commented on EA Explains Why It's Abandoning Dedicated Hand...:

@Jorzha I want it to be good, but I will hold off until they show actual gameplay footage. Plus I am in two minds over DICE being developer.

Still, things may well still look up. It maybe free to play, full of wonderful micro transactions just begging you to pay to buy extra ammo, guns, characters, levels, textures, music, sound, controller support etc. Not a bad deal really, just cost you your life savings and four mortgages on your home, sell your car and max out nine credit cards.

FragRed commented on EA Explains Why It's Abandoning Dedicated Hand...:

What EA really means is that they couldn't create "games" such as Dungeon Keeper on the 3DS or Vita because they know no real gamer would ever, ever touch it and invest all their hard earned cash on the endless number of micro transactions they love to put in their free to play titles. Am I right?
