@Superryanworld Never played the game, just knew a few people who did. I wasn't vested in the series, tbh. Wouldn't bother me if it stayed down. On a similar note, Rage disappointed me simply because id didn't come out with the next Doom-type game I've been wanting. It was a shame, really.

@kensredemption That's basically what I was going to say. I'm a huge Zelda fan, but acting like it sells systems or even nearly as much as people imply it does is a little silly. It's also fairly inaccurate unless you're talking about MM, which wasn't a system seller when it was new, only when it was put on a portable they just launched. NL really needs to stop being dramatic about some things.

@Bass_X0 Final Fantasy XIV took a long time to get good, my friend. And the only reason anyone cared was because Square Enix kept insisting it wouldn't suck once it got to PS4. Plus, Miyamoto's statements are still fairly accurate, as many people give up on games that suck when they launch. Look at Sonic Boom, which was apparently broken technically and not very fun to begin with. People tend to conflate good with not broken, which is probably not what Miyamoto meant when he said that. And Duke Nukem Forever is an example of a game developers didn't even try to update.

@MasterBlaster I'm just saying, they're being pretty obvious when they put up pictures of Nintendo avatars and act like they aren't trolls. Yes, some complaints are legit, but when you say teams aren't good if they can't meet deadlines, that's some mental gymnastics I just can't do. If it were a team for some series not by Nintendo, I suspect they wouldn't go to a PS or Xbox (or whatever other) forum and talk about the ineptitude of some team. Perhaps you didn't read into my statements correctly. By calling them out directly, I'm just doing what they're doing, trolling like an idiot.

It's kind of like what Steve Martin used to do, pretend to be a smarmy, dumb comedian. I'm surprised you didn't pick up on that.

And yes, I'm a fan of Larry David, it makes my posts seem a little more light-hearted and funny when you read them in his voice.

Let's be honest, we all kind of knew this would happen. I would be lying if I said I hoped I was wrong about my suspicions. Still stinks. I also love how everyone is acting like games don't get delayed, especially Zelda ones, which receive delays all the time. As for the brilliant minds asserting a game gets out "on time" Nintendo never gave a solid release date for this game, so you can't say what it was going to be anyway. Your statement is baseless, like all of your trolling. I love your avatars, which give no hints that you're a troll, either.

IronMan28 commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

@PlywoodStick 1% of a company is pretty much nothing, and that equity doesn't change unless both parties agree. I doubt the partnership will result in DeNa making major decisions, rather it seems sometimes they will provide input on matters in online infrastructure, which is currently small. Once it grows, DeNa cannot get more influence without Nintendo's consent. I doubt that part of the equation undercuts Nintendo's hardware or other major operations. However, I do agree that Nintendo making smartphone games is a major problem for big N's hardware business.

@Ootfan98 Because Sony/MS provide them with experiences they didn't know they wanted, and just happened to be decent at implementing and marketing them. Nintendo's strategies are a bit more product-related rather than service-related, which apparently doesn't resonate since the firm doesn't advertize well enough to them.

I don't think the move into smartphones is smart for Nintendo's hardware sector, tbh. The deal with DeNa might be good for an account-based system, so I'm good there. NX, we just don't know enough about to get too excited, I'm hopeful, but I still can't say either way if I'm excited or not.

IronMan28 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's DeNA Plans and Ideas...:

"Key areas to note - meanwhile - in terms of the smart device games that are coming, are that Nintendo has ruled out direct ports of Wii U and 3DS games, in particular; the key philosophy is that dedicated consoles will still host the experiences many of us treasure the most."

I feel like this is going largely unnoticed, which is bad for Nintendo.

IronMan28 commented on The Happy Mask Salesman is Teased for a Reappe...:

I would be okay with him making an appearance in Zelda U, MM wasn't the only game he appeared in. Regardless, I still want more info on the Wii U Zelda instead of stuff about a mask salesman who, while very goofy, is tertiarily important in most Zelda games.

IronMan28 commented on Freedom Planet Bringing Its Brand of Sonic-Sty...:

@LemonSlice I disagree that it belongs on 3DS any more than it would on Wii U, while GBA did have great Sonic games, I think his home is on consoles. Not saying it shouldn't be on 3DS, just that Wii U makes a bit more sense. However, I will admit Xbox One is technically the console that makes even more sense than Wii U. I say that because Xbox is kind of the successor to Sega's consoles.

Still haven't gotten into the game, although I've heard great things. Honestly, DW has never appealed to me, and even with the Zelda paint of coat, I don't think I really care too much about jumping into this game or series yet. I do want to give it a shot, but I'm still held back by various constraints involving time and the like.

IronMan28 commented on Review: OlliOlli (Wii U eShop):

@erv I'm pretty much with you on the time thing. Games are so readily available and affordable that it's not really a matter of money. On top of that, I have a ridiculous backlog. That said, this game seems worth my time, speaking for myself here, of course. Seems like a nice gap filler in the Wii U and 3DS lineups, tbh.

Gotta say the combat looks really great, like the first game. I really can't wait to play this, I think I'm going to pull a Cartman and freeze myself until the release date. Well, I'll do that once I find out the western release date...

IronMan28 commented on Feature: A Summary of the Xenoblade Chronicles...:

@Peach64 Console sales are usually higher as more games are available as a system gets bigger libraries. Wii U will probably sell a bit more than it did last year because of the volume of releases and the content currently available. Not that it matters a ton, I'm having a blast with it and I can't wait for this game

I remember someone saying they've been waiting for this game for three years, which is weird because XCX was announced in 2013 and it's 2015. Funny how people act like it wasn't revealed on the same Direct as Yoshi's Wooly World.
