GreenGaming commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

To be honest, I think the poll question is wrong. The question isn't "would you buy a Nintendo phone?" because its structured to agree with the article regardless of the answer you choose. The real question is "Should Nintendo make a phone?". That question is more likely to stimulate a debate and paint a more accurate picture of what Nintendo's customers would want.

in regards to the article itself, Nintendo making a mobile phone is utterly pointless. Mobile phones have become less about phoning and more about apps and games over the years. what are the two main uses for a mobile phone now? I would say number one is a portable connection to the Internet, and second may be gaming. If that's the case, why should Nintendo stray from the platforms they're already working with? the 3DS is still going strong with its entirely gaming based focus, why offer a direction that may hinder overall sales. Plus, if Nintendo ventured into an alternative market, they would stand little chance of success against the market's already formidable competition.

yes Nintendo games would be great on any platform, but I don't even know why we're even suggesting a Nintendo Phone when we've got a 3DS. I'm all for lively debate but this is just a misguided viewpoint I feel.

one thing Nintendo could work on in regards to mobile devices, are companion apps to work alongside the games they already make. an app for keeping track of Amiibo growth; an animal crossing app that works like a calendar telling you what days things will be happening whilst also letting you make your own notes about your town; a pokemon app that is literally a pokedex that tells you about upcoming moves, evolution methods and perhaps even rare pokemon locations. those are just a few that spring to mind but there's a lot of room for ideas. if Nintendo were to infiltrate the mobile platform in any way, this to me is the best and only way they should explore.



GreenGaming commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

for the record, petitions are usually used for democracy. for citizens to have a voice against a government decision, and if enough people sign them, the government is obliged to act.

the same cannot be said for companies. they are a business and they are selling products. petitions for these people are most certainly not mandatory. it doesn't matter how many people sign the petition, it will remain the decision of the company involved as to whether or not they act on it. Nintendo will not act on this however because of obvious reasons.



GreenGaming commented on Alph Confirmed as a New Challenger in Super Sm...:

don't get me wrong, I love Alph, but I'm not a fan of clones. it would have been better if he had Brittany and Charlie with him instead of Pikmin and they work together in that sense but if not this should have just been a skin. the only difference is that he can't use rock Pikmin so in that case, as it is, Alph is looking to be the Pichu of this game.



GreenGaming commented on Nintendo Is Here To Stay And Will Do Very Well...:

Could this have something to do with the fact that Amazon and other online retailers are the only ones properly stocking the Wii U, making them the only place people can buy the console. My highstreet GAME is nothing but wall to wall Xbox and Playstation, and my local supermarkets have the Wii U sections merged with the Wii. It really frustrates me when people complain that the Wii U "isn't selling" because places won't stock it.



GreenGaming commented on Phil Fish: I Love Nintendo In Ways It Probably...:

This is hilarious to me. His explanations here don't add up against his previous rant. He says he doesn't hate the DS or the 3DS and states that he was merely "pointing out a few aspects I dislike" but his "points" - as he calls them - were too aggressive in my eyes. According to him the circle pad pro was an "atrocity", the two screens were gimmicks that nobody wants, and he's never played a DS and said 'this is fine as it is'. No mention of the good points then, just a broken console in Fish's eyes, but the Vita, well that's just "PERFECT". You're right, Fish, people are jumping to conclusions, you love Nintendo really, you're just terrible at it.



GreenGaming commented on Fez Creator Believes Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate...:

This guy clearly thinks the world of himself, but his argument doesn't hold water. What's so bad about the "clamshell" design of the DS? What's wrong with having two screens, you're never really asked to look at both at the same time, so what's the big deal? His love of the vita gets in the way of being fair, but realistically having one screen or two control sticks doesn't make your console better - or worse for that matter - it just makes it different. Everyone's entitled to their opinion, but his is so one sided that it can hardly be taken seriously. Sony fan-boy in other words
