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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

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.

@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.

Well considering there is no longer a Zelda U this year, and likely nothing till end of next year at least, I would really love something in the Zelda universe to come out before then, so a Twilight Princess remake would do great! Its a pity this is likely a fake though.

FragRed commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

Personally I'm not so concerned about Super Smash Bros DLC as though I love being crap at the game, I'm not personally too interested in purchasing DLC characters.

However, I would love 8 new tracks every 6 months for Mario Kart 8 especially if they took advantage of 200 cc. But I also don't want Nintendo to take away talents from other projects, such as Mario Kart 9 for the NX because I feel it needs to launch year 1 of the console to make maximum impact on sales. Launch would be ideal but I'm being somewhat realistic.

FragRed commented on Nintendo Submits Trademark for NES Controller:

This is likely nothing more than renewing what is perhaps the most iconic controller design in video gaming. I don't think Nintendo has any plans to do anything with it other than perhaps stop unofficial accessories being made.

FragRed commented on Video: Greatness Awaits In This New Project CA...:

The lack of any screenshots or trailers for the Wii U version suggests that even if they are actually going to port it to our system, they haven't started work on it yet. I mean there isn't even a date for the Wii U release.

FragRed commented on Nintendo of Japan Confirms the Tracks in the U...:

Like a lot of people, I would love to see a new F Zero announced for Wii U. It seems like they're teasing us with 2 themed tracks and 200 cc. But I don't think we'll see anything from the franchise this year. Maybe next year when Mario Kart has been out 2 years.

FragRed commented on Zelda-Style Adventure Midora Runs Out Of Kicks...:

They should have finished the game as promised, get it on Steam green light early access and then start to look at implementing these new ideas because they'd have, potentially, income from sales to keep them going and wouldn't piss off the backers quite so much.

FragRed commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

I can already see there's going to be shed tonne of speculation articles on what "analysts" and "games consultants" think the NX may or may not be between now and the reveal.

However I also see a lot of "rumoured leaks" over the coming months from various sources close by, mainly being hardware related. It'll be interesting to see whether Nintendo are forced to bring forward the planned reveal like they did with the 3DS if this happens.

FragRed commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

@FX102A While this us certainly partly true, the Wii being an example of how people will buy something different through the use of motion controls, I will also argue that Sony attempted something different with the PS4 controller and for the most part, the touch pad has been ignored except for being a replacement "select" button. I think the "hardcore" gamer will always go with what they know and have over something different unless they're offered a real good reason.

FragRed commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

I don't believe it'll be anything like that. Nintendo announced the NX at the same time as their partnership to assure everyone that they are not leaving the dedicated console market. This glove idea is essentially the opposite to that.

I'm not saying Nintendo wouldnt launch something glove idea, even if it does sound farfetched, but it would be something marketed totally separate to the NX.

FragRed commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

I really am mega excited for Splatoon and have been since that glorious reveal at E3 last year. And I am so so hoping it will sell near to, if not more than Mario Kart 8 which will give Nintendo a reason to turn it into a series.

However, I really don't see Splatoon helping the Wii U. Not now. I think if Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros didn't turn fortunes around as much as Nintendo hoped, then this certainly won't. On top of that, theres so many stupid articles popping up every day about Nintendo's codename NX, I fear those on the fence will hang on till the next console.

FragRed commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

There's a lot of games coming out for the Wii U in the second half of this year, as previously demonstrated in the Nintendo Direct. Plus there's at least 2 games coming out next year that we are aware of, and that's before Nintendo make surprise announcements at E3.

To say Nintendo are winding down the Wii U is just not right. I don't know if Nintendo will bother with new console bundles since they never officially did one for Super Smash Bros, but that doesn't mean it's still being wound down, in my personal opinion at least.

We know nothing about NX other than its a dedicated gaming console. That could mean a handheld for all we know, though it will most likely be a Wii U successor if not a hybrid (still don't think a hybrid would be powerful enough).

FragRed commented on Nintendo Download: 9th April (Europe):

This seems pretty empty this week. After everything they said about Wii, N64 & DS VC for the Wii U last week, you'd have thought they'd make an effort to have something up for the second week.

I hope we don't go for weeks only getting a single random game here and there.

FragRed commented on Retrospective: Sega's Streets of Rage Series:

The planned Ruffian Games reboot of Streets of Rage could have been awesome as a downloadable game, which is how I see any future instalment having to be, but that gameplay trailer looked way too slow and uninspiring.
