H3ro_of_tim3 commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

I like the "not for me" option. I'm also curious about number of voters. I look forward to discussing the digital event and each of these game announcements on our next episode of the Turtle Jump Video Game podcast. You guys should check us out, NL peeps included :) We're taking discussion letters for the show at letters@turtlejump.com.

H3ro_of_tim3 commented on Wii U Will be a 'Great Value Proposition':

I don't see any possibility that the system goes for less than $300, which I've read some predicting. I think $300 US dollars is an amazing price, but I'm honestly expecting a $350 tag, which is still a good price. In my opinion, anything above $350 is a baaaad move by Nintendo. They need to get the system placed at a value that makes it competitive with the rest of the console market. If they can pull this off, I think the launch will be a massive success. Can't wait!

H3ro_of_tim3 commented on Feature: Nintendo Land's Potential:

@LavaTwilight: I see your point, and please don't get me wrong: I believe that NintendoLand looks like a great game. I'm sure that it would do well as a stand alone game as well, but I believe that it would be much more beneficial as a
Packaged in game due to the fact that it would drive sales of the system, especially for those that are a bit unsure about buying a Wii U at launch. Games like these sell well, but look at something like Mario Party. These are games for casual gamers, and many "hardcore" gamers aren't going to spend $50 on a Mario Party game. I believe it's the same sort of audience that would consider paying retail for NLand. I believe that Nintendo knows how to make a great game, and no doubt it would be worth the price tag, but I believe that people that are still nervous about taking a risk (although I don't see it as one personally) on a new system would be lured in much more easily with a first party star like NLand.

@Lew3107 Agreed. I think as a packaged in game, NintendoLand has the potential to be miles ahead of Wii Sports or anything of the like, and I think it can be an awesome gateway for other Ninty IP's like F-Zero, Animal Crossing, etc. This could be the game that brings gamers both casual and "hardcore" out at launch if it's included. I've always been a Nintendo fan, and I trust that they won't disappoint.

I will admit I was originally underwhelmed by NintendoLand, but now that I've had some time to mull it over, I think it's the right move from Nintendo. However, I believe releasing it as a full price irst party title with launch would be a colossal mistake. This game has the potential to set system sales in fire by packaging it in with the Wii U. Anything else, IMO, would be counterproductive.

H3ro_of_tim3 commented on Preview: Wii U Hands-On:

After all that E3 revealed, regardless of the fact that there wasn't really any big "surprises" that we've all grown so accustomed to from the big N, I believe that Nintendo successfully made the Wii U incredibly appealing. Sure, we didn't see any glimpses of a Zelda for the 3DS, and we all pretty much knew SMBU was coming in some fashion (not to mention Pikmin 3). But in the end, I found myself anxious to jump forward to the October/November window where we will surely see the Wii U hit store shelves. And for the first time in more than a decade, I will be waiting in line at midnight to take home my own brand new Nintendo Next Gen console. Let the anxious anticipation and long nights waiting begin.
