ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (North America):

Kirby 64 maybe... though I have the cartridge and the N64 is currently hooked up...

ooo... I just realized we FINALLY got another Wii title. Finally got another one after the original release of them. Hopefully this won't be the end of the Wii titles... or at least hopefully not this super long drought again.

ikki5 commented on The Legend of Legacy is Coming to Europe... in...:

It's funny how people complain about Nintendo because a 3rd party makes a choice. The comparison with Yoshi is pathetic because Yoshi is Nintendo and Nintendo is delaying their own game for one region while this is a 3rd party. I am sorry if Localization is more difficult in Europe but it makes sense for 3rd parties. The thing that doesn't make sense is when Nintendo themselves give one region special treatment. When Nintendo does it, go ahead and get mad, when a 3rd party does it, get mad at the third party and don't go on about "Nintendo is favouring you because of the 3rd party" because it is not Nintendo's doing (the majority of the time). Now, with that said, when someone can come and give me examples from Nintendo about Nintendo (NOT 3rd party) giving NoA the better treatment, let me know because for the past two years(or more)... I have a hard time seeing that or finding much and it seems mostly on the contrary. Even then, People wanted stuff even and equal, now it is just European toxicity because you were treated so poorly. Instead of wanting it right for everyone, you want the other to burn. Pathetic. It is sad to see NA people starting to do this now also when something does go in their favour since we've been getting crap for so long now.

ikki5 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

@vincentgoodwin Yes but we were told that the NX would be talked about at E3 2016, in other words, probably an official announcement. Every system that they have done now, when the official announcement has been made, it has been released the following year. The Wii, was only ever talked about in 2004 and never really told what it even was, it was officially announced in the 2005 to be released in 2006. In 2004, they talked about them making a new console and it was called the Nintendo Revolution. It was talked about in the same sort of sense that the NX was talked about a few months ago. So no, the NX is not following with what other systems have done as it is already ahead of schedule as the NX was talked about 3 months before E3 while the "Nintendo revolution" was talk about during E3. They didn't wait until E3 to do what they did. There is an obvious good reason for it to be ahead of schedule too.

@vitalemrecords The never announced it, they said they were working on something that is a dedicated gaming platform (in other words, not saying it is a home console or handheld though majority of the evidence so far has pointed to home console) and calling it the NX right now. The official announcement will be next year at (or around) E3. That is where my math is coming. Next year will be the Wii U's 4th year on the market.

ikki5 commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

@vitalemrecords When a system is announced, it is usually released the following year with Nintendo so that would put it at 5 years, that being 2017, if they announced the NX at 4 years into the Wii U's life span however, that is not always the case. Nintendo could release the NX the same year they announce if they want. There is no rule saying they cannot do this. Sony and MS proved that with their latest consoles and Nintendo could easily lean towards this practice as well.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (Europe):

@Aromaiden And is there a reason why Sony and Microsoft's fan base keeps increasing? The reason is because those two get it right. Maybe not so much Microsoft at the moment but seriously, saying that there are competitors is not a good reason. Sure it would be a factor but Nintendo needs to fix it's issues and it's issues would be the bigger reason why people jump ship. You don't jump ship on something that is already awesome. You jump ship for something that is better. If Nintendo continued to stay great, they should be remaining the same (which would mean they are bringing in people to fill up those who leave) or they would be growing which they are obviously not.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (Europe):

@Platypus101 It's not just E3, They've been making bad decisions for a long time now, especially in North America. They've promised stuff to get better when there has either been no change or it has gotten worse. VC titles do mean a lot especially when you see one region with games you never played, you want to play but the region refuses to release what is in another region even though there should be nothing stopping them from releasing it, especially when it is their own game. But overall, people just want Nintendo to keep their promises, stop making mistakes, learn from them and so forth. There has been a lot of crap this gen, some of which has been going of for over a decade now and the keep saying they learned from it when they haven't. Like, you say it is unjustified when this is wrong. There is a reason why the fans of Nintendo are a fraction of what they were 15-20 years ago.

ikki5 commented on Mario Kart 8 Soundtrack CD Club Nintendo Rewar...:

@Whopper744 This is very common. NoA has been out of the Loop for a while now despite when most Europeans will argue. Club Nintendo, VC titles,, e-shop in general, Amiibo, game releases (Nintendo games, 3rd party do not count), etc., it is like they've done a flip instead of evening everything out like what people all wanted to begin with. Now, it is sad because when I've gotten into arguments, it is usually a very sour attitude I get from a lot of European gamers simply because NA used to have it better and now, it is almost atrocious.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Promises More ami...:

@BLPs

"Why isn't this in America?" bigger population you'd think they would account for the population when making the shipments and adjust the ratio accordingly
"Why do you guys get amiibo first?" Makes up for staggered releases early on This I can almost agree on but the release schedule between the two is a little obscene. Even more so that you guys are getting restocks of Amiibo (a re-stock that is happening before the release date of the North American ones) that have yet to be released here in North America and Amiibo are not locked by region so really, there is no reason for it.
"Why d you get Woolly World early?" Because you guys have games from the 90s that we only recently got at all. And the same can be said about you guys, localization can be a terrible thing as it can take forever or just not happen, the difference though is the translations for here are all done when it is Europe first, when it is NA first, there is another 5-10 (possibly more) languages to do plus it has always been known that NA is easier to localize because of the government laws and such, hence why stuff use to release here first a lot more than Europe though that has now often changed for some odd reason. Even more so, because it was done in the past, does it make it right in the future? No, that is why people praise world wide releases so much and want them regardless if they were in the group that benefited more in the past, which Nintendo has decided to ignore with most things.It is not about doing what is fair now and settling the score, it is about coming into the modern age.

Voted nothing because there was no Metroid Zero Mission, Golden Sun 2,Pokepark, DK Returns, Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Pandora's Tower, Kirby's Epic Yarn, Sin & Punishment: Star Successor, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards or Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon... am I missing any? Probably... so many, I've lost count.

ikki5 commented on Industry Analysts Speculate On Nintendo's Futu...:

As long as the successor is not Miyamoto, we should be fine. If anyone wonders why i think this, I just look at his ideals. Project Robot, The state and relation of the Koopalings (he changed canon) and Sticker Star are all I need for this opinion.

With this kind of attitude... who is he hoping will buy it because he is kind of insulting people with this.... I won't buy a game from a person who throws insult. I remember questioning buying Smash because of Sakurai's attitude.

ikki5 commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

@AirElephant Yeah, the gamepad was a disappointment as it was a console that was portable that wasn't really portable. You'd like leave the room and go 5-10 feet away and lose connection. But for me, it is how they are handling it. Over all, if it wasn't for Nintendo games and the amount of money I sunk into the Wii U, I would have sold this a long time ago. It just isn't overall worth it really. There are very few games for it's library that are really worth it. The support is garbage, the account is garbage... pretty much Nintendo paranoid about people doing anything. Their DRM is on par with what Microsoft was going to do if not worse. It is strange how people went all up in arms about that but hardly anyone bats an eye with Nintendo's horrible system. But really, they can announce the most powerful tech to ever exist and I just won't be interested until probably well after it's release and when I am able to see if Nintendo has really learned from their mistakes. I am not getting suckered into this again.

@IceClimbers @DESS-M-8

Well, until they actually show they learned from them, it means nothing to me. They've been saying they learned this, they admit this and yet, nothing improves. Some, even got worse. Fool me once, Shame on them, fool me twice, shame on me. They want me to continue to buy and support them? They need to show they changed and they need to show it well. Words mean nothing any more from Nintendo.
