Gerbwmu commented on Video: Nintendo Introduces the Battle Mechanic...:

@LasermasterA - Even though I dont think it would change the visuals much, I'd buy an HD remake of the Tellius series day 1 as well. I'd be happy with a Radiant Dawn release on the eShop though and maybe PoR can find its way onto the eShop for the next home console or NX or however it's going to work. For now Fates will keep me occupied for the foreseeable future and SteamWorld Heist in glorious HD hopefully will be along sooner then later.



Gerbwmu commented on Video: Nintendo Introduces the Battle Mechanic...:

@FRANKLIN_BADGE - not too mention making a game off of the same engine saves time and money so 3DS made sense. The overall scale of the game seems larger in Radiant Dawn and to a lessor extent Path of Radiance. The size of the battles and the different strategies just seemed to be missing in Awakening and there are aspects of both, such as the experience point system that I miss.

Not that handheld FE are bad. I realy like FE for GBA and Sacred Stones was solid. Too bad the Radiant series didnt find a larger audience



Gerbwmu commented on Video: Nintendo Introduces the Battle Mechanic...:

Very excited to try this. I'm hoping conquest gives me what I was missing from Awakening, a challenge and some diversity in play. Will play through birthright first probably though before I go after the harder challenge.



Gerbwmu commented on Video: Image & Form Discusses SteamWorld amiib...:

I don't think I would buy an amiibo for SteamWorld games unless the bonus was something amazing.....I have no interest in Shovel Knight eother.....but it's cool they have the option of doing it. Maybe it will allow you to use Rusty as one of your space pirates in Heist?



Gerbwmu commented on Rumour: New Splatoon Mini-Game Arriving Soon w...:

@rjejr - I would pay for single player DLC.....well new, not just different challenges for the existing, well maybe I'd pay for that too. If I ran Nintendo I'd have them working on a giant single player splatoon game based on the "Great Turf Wars". Then again if I ran Nintendo they would probably be bankrupt because of the games I'd have them developing.



Gerbwmu commented on Sony Hardware and Exclusives Dominate in Japan...:

Slow week but still much stronger then last years least for Wii U. Not sure what the Japanese release schedule looks like but I'm sure a few new games for the systems will help boost the numbers.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Profits Dip as amiibo Hits Over 40 Mi...:

Overall the numbers are ok. Wii U consistently moves along and looks like it will be at 16 million after 2016......depending on NX, what it is, and when it's being released. 3DS is declining year over year but still very profitable and a ton of releases coming out.

@Peach64 - Seems like the Wii U target is almost a sure thing. 394K short as of Dec 31st with a stronger January then last year in Japan already known. If they do get about 60K a month in US then it should be easy to find another 75K worldwide for January - March.

3DS though looks hopeless.....unless the special Pokémon additions fly off the shelves. Any chance of it selling 1 million units because of that?



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Share Value Climbs Once Again Ahead o...:

@TheLobster - I dislike day trading, it's the reason the market is the way it is and, IMO, we would all be better off if the market was used for long term investing. Having said that, some one who makes 11%....lets say after taxes and fees it's 5% on their money in a weeks time isn't an idiot, at least not in this particular trade considering that works out to some 260% yearly ROI. I'm no fan of day trading but there are people who do it very well.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Share Value Climbs Once Again Ahead o...:

Anyone who bought a bunch of Nintendo stock early last week made quick money if they sold today.

The investing public believes tomorrow's reports and meetings are going to be strong financially and announcement wise.....we will find out how accurate their predictions are in a day.

My prediction is a drop in stock price of about 6% when Nintendo doesn't say or show much at the meetings.



Gerbwmu commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Do You Most Wa...:

Because it feels like we just got most of these games it makes it hard to pick. I'd like to see them do maybe a 1080 NX with picture perfect scenery, a Metroid that promoted exploration almost on the scale of Xenoblade, and Super Mario NX which would be a follow up to SM64 for the cartoon style gameplay everyone's game.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Share Value Ends Week on a High Ahead...:

@Mineral - for us gamers, a hike in share price could indicate an announcement that investors believe will drive up the price, so maybe something good for us like game or hardware news. More then likely though, investors are expecting better then predicted profits and that's why there is a spike in price. So basically this is like a rumor article saying....hey maybe something awesome next week.....or not.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Share Value Ends Week on a High Ahead...:

The stock is almost certain to fall after the financials are reported just because they won't announce the amazing numbers some are hoping for. The stock will then rebound so......if I was a day trader I'd be looking for a fall in price to buy before flipping the stock on the week later rebound.



Gerbwmu commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. Planned as NX Launch...:

This rumor....if true....points me in the direction of a handheld some what on par with a XB1 and will release in 2016 and this SSB will be a port of the Wii U version slightly upgraded and including the DLC. By the time the home console NX version arrives in 2017 they will have a patch to play SSB with enhanced specs on the new home NX and it will be a cohesive nx family that plays all the same games, works together to offer you Wii U and DS like experiences and offers everything that is currently in the eShop for Wii U on both the handheld and home console. Since it will be one family any game you own on 1 will work with the other and as an added bonus anyone with a Wii U can link their old gamepad to the NX so you can play all Wii U games even if you don't buy the NX handheld......also I'm probably full of crap



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Confirms a Short Spell of Network Mai...:

Totally directing us directly to the next direct!

The direct will include everything you want and will be amazing!

Also Nintendo will anounce New Virtual Boy Color which will play all Virtual Boy games but will allow you to change the color from red to whatever your favorite color is.....or colour if you speak real English



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 28th January (North America):

Might pick up FFT but not sure yet. Still hoping for a Space Hulk review too (Don't let me down NLife) at $29.99 it's a little more then I want to pay but if it is a good game I'd like to support it.

Lot's of options this week though over all



Gerbwmu commented on Fire Emblem Fates Removes 'Petting' Feature in...:

Don't care....hated the marriage aspect of Awakening and the 4 step I hate you, you aren't horrible, I like you, lets get married and have kids relationship that I had to go through to get to the rest of the playable characters. Not to mention the completely overpowered mechanic of grouping up your fighters in order to get to marriage......but the petting thing seems optional so I wouldn't care if it was in either.

For those of you screaming the evils of censorship, I bet you do it to yourself multiple times every day and your behavior changes depending on who you are around (for example there are things I don't say around my parents out of respect but with my close friends I say anything that pops into my head)....what Nintendo is doing with localization is no different they are making adjustments to themselves in order to appeal to where they are.



Gerbwmu commented on Video: Watch The Epic Pokémon Super Bowl Comm...:

@Kobeskillz - it's also 1 minute 10 seconds long which means it will be edited somehow for the spot. Maybe we will get a shortened version or maybe what we see here is only part? At any rate there will be a lot of eyes seeing it so hopefully they have some sort of product shout out in the last couple seconds.



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Online Gaming Can't Recreate th...:

There is a balance I hope the industry finds but online is the "in thing" right now so it is being shoved into every game and sometimes that takes away from the main game.

Still it is a option to have especially for those who needed to move away from their friends. Still I'd rather have a house full of people taking turns and enjoying the company then sitting in my house alone talking through a mic and hoping the internet doesn't glitch



Gerbwmu commented on Video: Relive the Glorious Madness of The Wond...:

@zool - the game gets better as you play and that seems to be the general opinion of most who have played it. Pretty common to see "the demo doesn't do a good job of showcasing the game" as well. I would say if you liked the demo then you would enjoy the game. Especially at a very discounted price. Pretty easy to find this game fairly cheap.



Gerbwmu commented on Yo-kai Watch Anime Series Coming to the UK Thi...:

Yo-kia Watch commercials for the show airingin the US on Disney XD in the or whatever it is called is all over the place. I see 2 or 3 commercials for it everytime my kids watch something. At this point I can't get the song out of my head.



Gerbwmu commented on GDC Survey Shows Declining Interest From Devel...:

A little means 20 more indie developers are interested in xb1 and ps4 and 20 less for 3DS and Wii U then last year. Not really going to change whats going on. And of course there are a lot more people interested in VR....we have actual products coming out and they all want to be the new thing. Im actually sirprised that number isnt higher. Once NX gets a reveal it will be interesting to see where that number charts but this really isnt much of a change over last year



Gerbwmu commented on Rumour: Online Survey Mentions NX's 4K Video S...:

Seems like the 900p is the handheld portion, and a handheld that could give you similar experience to XB1 would be incredible. Especially if you can hook it up to your console, play on the big screen and upgrade the visuals



Gerbwmu commented on Sega Has Some "Interesting" Sonic News For Us ...:

It says not to tell anyone you saw it and what do you do.......WAY TO RUIN THE SECRET nlife........where is my spoiler alert tag line.......

All kidding aside, I'd like some sort of compilation maybe remastered in HD or something.....only because it doesnt seem like they haven't done well with newer Sonic games.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Share Value Continues to Improve as I...:

Probably going higher because people are expecting good financial numbers for the 3rd quarter. Depending on what is reveled it will either drop or remain steady but expect a lot of movement over the next two in short this doesn't really mean anything.



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Five Alternative Nintendo Reveals and...:

Retro Studio's is a fun topic to push. They have been done with DKCTF for at least 2 years if not a little longer. They have had a ton of hiring postings. Whatever they are working on has to be pretty far into development and there is even the possibility of multiple projects. If we dont get something from them at E3 I'd be very surprised......what it is though, I really have no idea. Wii U game? NX game? A cross over title released on both? Something specifically for the New 3DS? Half life 3?



Gerbwmu commented on Pokkén Tournament Will be Picking Fights on 1...:

@rjejr - I'm never wrong.....except for when I am.

I really don't believe LoZ Wii U will release in May, just shocked they are stacking basically 3 Wii U games on top of each other in March / April.

I do believe LoZ Wii U will be the November 2016 game and a full fledged reveal will take place at E3. I dont think NX will be released until Feb 2017 at again I'll be wrong!



Gerbwmu commented on Pokkén Tournament Will be Picking Fights on 1...:

I was expecting May......could this mean Zelda Wii U is there big May game? If Star Fox Zero really does come out in April then maybe NX is arriving in late 2016. Seems like a jam packed early 2016, I guess we will wait and see what Directs and E3 brings for Wii U and 3DS releases in late 2016.



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Considering amiibo Features and...:

DLC - either I like it and I buy it or I don't see the need and pass on it. Simple as that. Some games it can be amazing - Mario Kart other games I see no need and it seems incredibly pricy - Smash Bros and even that is all opinion.

At this point I haven't even seen a preorder for the non amiibo LoZ TP and considering I got a pre order for under $50 I don't feel like it is an issue



Gerbwmu commented on Bayonetta 2 to Have a Standalone North America...:

Bayonetta 2 is a tough find from what I hear so this is a great idea. Should get it oast a million in sales I'd think....if it isn't already there.

Still glad I got it with both versions a couple months after release.



Gerbwmu commented on Poll: Are You Optimistic About Nintendo's 2016?:

Again....2016 is shaping up to be a good year for me. I've never played LoZ TP, Star Fox looks like my kind of Star Fox, LoZ Wii U in November? and hopefully FE x SMT plus a surprise or 2 and at least a few VC titles I'm looking forward to.

3DS will have FE Fates and that's probably about it for me but I just don't game much on handhelds....unless I end up on a lot of airplanes this year.

NX......who knows, not worried about it and I really don't think it's coming until 2017 but whatever it is, I'm excited for the E3 reveal if there is one?
