@Totaldude911 I can understand that.
Its companies like Sony & Double Fine I don't trust honestly. They have seen the goldmine & will scrape that sucker dry with endless remakes and sequels which should really be funded by the original owners themselves.
Projects such as Yooka-Laylee & Bloodstained I'm all for, they come across as works of passion.

Ichiban commented on Nintendo Outlines Future Plans for 3DS and Pro...:

You know what would be good for the 3DS? Dropping the prices of the games. New release games cost almost as much as a new console game, which is just ridiculous. The prices never drop either, OOT3D is still full price almost 5 years after its release for example. It's put me off the system that's for sure.

Ichiban commented on IHS Technology Adds to Speculation of an NX Po...:

My prediction for NX: Nintendo employees by random chance read this comment section, look at each other in morbid shock, then simultaneously say to each other: "these are our fans?!", then proceed to cancel the NX & entire gaming division. Nintendo then opens up a chain of ice cream stores instead.

Wasn't Uncharted 4 delayed 3 times also? And at this point Zelda U is just a myth....point is that nobody's perfect, you'll get your damn game when it's ready you bunch of sooky sods! The game is being released on a thousand platforms too let's not forget...

Much more interested to see the improvements made to the game itself. Why Nintendo chose to show off the happy meal extras first seems a bit odd to me. (Unless you count the amiibo use as improvements, which I really don't)

Ichiban commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Bayonetta ...:

Bayonetta 2 has one of the greatest opening levels in gaming history with Hell On Earth, talk about getting the player pumped!
I hope if there is a 3rd game, that its just Bayo & Jeanne's adventure. Im not a fan of the twatty sidekicks Luka & Loki

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

What worries me is not the TPHD amiibo use so much, is that if the next Zelda game (Zelda Wii U, NX?) locks something away behind amiibo use. It could be something as simple as exclusive weapons, skins, or even something like exclusive missions, dungeons. I think the poop would really hit the fan then!

Ichiban commented on Japanese Analyst Claims NX Could Launch As Ear...:

Alright.....time to fire up the old controversy wagon...
It's coming this year, no doubt in my mind. Anyone who thinks otherwise should remember that Nintendo aren't your friend, they don't give a damn about you or the false promises of a 5 year Wii U life cycle you expect in your imagination. They just want what's in your wallet. Like any business.
As for games....It wouldn't surprise me if Reggie came out & said something like "Nintendo fans have been eagerly awaiting footage of the first NX titles.....yet you've been looking at one the whole time......" points to the new Zelda game. Which imo has looked waaaay too good for a Wii U game since the first trailer (sloppy game awards footage aside)

Ichiban commented on Review: Wave Race 64 (Wii U eShop / N64):

Damn right this is a 9/10! This game blew my mind upon release, and is still just as good today.
A new Wave Race for the NX could be quite the launch title. It would be a graphical showcase, lure in racing fans after something a bit different, & people like me who have wanted a new entry drooling in anticipation!
Ah the good ole N64 days.....Ninty had some balls back then!

Ichiban commented on Nintendo Download: 31st December (Europe):

Wave Race is still awesome, even to this day. What I would give for a follow up (Blue Storm is trash) which retains the original's style, feel, atmosphere, & awesome soundtrack.

Ichiban commented on Nintendo NX Doesn't Need To Compete With PlayS...:

I'd love to see the best of all worlds with NX. It never hit me until recently just how well Nintendo's games are at introducing younger players into gaming. My niece would always watch her brothers play on my PS4 when they would visit. Then one day she asked if she could play something. The problem was that all the PS4 games where just too complicated/violent for her to play (7 years old) So I told her I had a game where she could play as a princess (Super Mario 3D World) & her face lit up. I played a couple of levels of 3D World with her, & she has been hooked ever since. She recently got a Wii U of her own & is always asking to play games whenever she visits now, Lego Jurassic being another favorite. Combine that audience with the hardcores & watch the magic happen. This is something that the X1 & PS4 lack in my opinion.
I hope my ramblings make sense lol

Ichiban commented on Poll: Are You Excited About Minecraft: Wii U E...:

I'm one of the few people who cant handle dual screen gaming. I find looking between the 2 screens a big strain on my eyes, to the point where it makes me feel dizzy, and sometimes sick. So the gamepad features dont bother me, but the option would be nice for those who can handle it.
But at the end of the day, I feel people should be grateful the game is coming to Wii U. Lets not forget that Nintendo neglect gamepad features as much as any of these so called "lazy devs". I know I would take Minecraft over Amiibo Festival or Mario Tennis!
