gilvelez1 commented on Smartphone Game Market Shows Impressive Growth...:

@cyrus_zuo the 3ds did not sell as expected but that doesn't mean it was horrible. To say the best selling system in Japan last year did horrible doesn't sound right...
And this "qol" thing Nintendo will bring is an entirely different market. It won't be games. They are expanding their buisness to have more outlets to make money so they compensate for when their video game branch struggles. I.e., what sony and microsoft do.
Saying they cant sell to adults is ridiculous. The adults are the ones who are buying the systems and games for kids.
They tried to get the hardcore gamer crowd to come over with wiiu but that obviously didn't work.
And you can blame every reason in the book for that one... marketing. . Lack of games.. lack of power.. graphics... third party support... etc.
Eventually Nintendo will catch on like they are starting to do with their online focus. Linking accounts. More games with multiplayer.
Power n graphics will be next..
Then again... with Nintendo who knows



gilvelez1 commented on Satoru Iwata Announces a "Quality of Life" Pla...:

The problem Nintendo is trying to solve is -
With Wii and the DS they tapped into a new market and expanded the video game market as a whole with software like brainage, wii fit, wii sports- its the "casual" crowd that helped nintendo be successful last gen.
However- this gen with Wii U they seem to have lost that crowd. So their next move is to make a new product dedicated soley to that casual market- while still keeping their video game business going at the same time.
And if they are sucessful they can integrate the two



gilvelez1 commented on Talking Point: Is The Castlevania Series Finis...:

Konami and Capcom are struggling to capture the success they've had in the past.
LOS- is the best 3d entry. Finally bringing Castlevania into the modern era of gaming.
But if not for that castlevania would be dormant. Ala megaman.
And resident evil has lost its thunder.
Something def wrong w japanese companies.
Only thing konami has going is metal gear asfar as im concerned



gilvelez1 commented on Talking Point: New Year Resolutions for Nintendo:

@bizcuthammer they've released NES Remix and Dr. Luigi on the eshop. There is no drought. I think Nintendo knows what they're doing as far as upcoming releases for 2014.
They've learned from wiiu launch that they cannot sit idle and expect to succeed on name alone.
I think we can expect more "unannounced" titles to pop up. I believe titles like those mentioned above is what Nintendo was referring to during one of their financial breifings.

Voted for pikmin but definitely picking up all three hitters on the WiiU.
Happy its finally here.
Digital plus promo will net me 5bucks for pikmin purchase which gets me a free game or cloud for halfoff- nice :)



gilvelez1 commented on Talking Point: Pikmin 3 Shows the First Shoots...:

It IS the beginning of "recovery"- for those that consider the WiiU a failure in terms of sales.
Regardless of sales I think one has to realize that Nintendo will not stop "injecting" the system due to sales- this isn't Virtual Boy days- and if one trult is a fan of Nintendo then you would know that the "recovery" started with the release of the update, Virtual Console, and Luigi U- along with all the indie games I have downloaded, rayman challenge app, and all the high profile games the system does have at the moment (NSMBU, ZOMBIU, REVEALTIONS, BlackOPs2, LegoCity, Injustice- ) I'm quite happy with my WiiU!! (And all my VC games :))



gilvelez1 commented on Pokémon Rumble U Gets Into a Dust-Up With the...:

This is BIG!
never been a fan of pokemon but this announcement along with the NFCs. The release and success of Pikmin in Japan, the WiiU is beginning its turn around.
I do wonder if this was the "unannounced new types of game(s)" that Iwata mentioned-
