"Beyond trends developed by the gaming community in general, lifestyles in the modern world probably contribute to this. "

Yep, it's a bigger sociological trend that many people in today's world believe we need to be "on the go" and often are moving. I love local multiplayer, but with the McDonaldization of society (great book by George Ritzer, btw), people are often traveling and unable to meet. Plus, companies like MS imposed Xbox Live during the original Xbox/PS2/GCN era, so people who played there were somewhat forced to use that option. Online play is fine by me, but it shouldn't be the only option, even in awesome games like Splatoon.

Well, I could see this happening since I've heard variations of this rumor. In spite of a lot of the internet wishing the death of the Wii U, it seems relatively likely rumors with a split device are true. Regardless, I hope it's true so I can play all of the legacy and upcoming handheld games on my tv. Handheld gaming isn't practical for me.



IronMan28 commented on Fire Emblem Fates New Nintendo 3DS XL Model Co...:

The all-in-one should be more readily available, tbh. Doesn't really affect me right now anyway, my 3DS is inoperable and there's no chance I'm getting another. Hopefully NX is a hybrid with BC for all 3DS games on eShop from day 1 so I can pick this up and the games I've missed out on in the last few months. I realize that's a pretty lofty wish, but I can dream...



IronMan28 commented on Amazon Joins Retail Rivals in Offering Game Di...:

I buy a lot of stuff on Amazon so this is awesome for me, particularly for my Xbox One where I don't usually get digital games due to the lack of HDD space. The stock one doesn't hold a lot of games and I won't get an external for a little while.



IronMan28 commented on Nintendo Download: 14th January (North America):

Well, can't wait to play Zero Mission again for the first time in over 10 years.

Also, I didn't realize Wii U had so many GBA games until I looked at eShop earlier today. There are some great games I missed because I stopped playing the handheld after a year or two of owning it.



IronMan28 commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Shin'en Multi...:

While everyone was whining about Devil's Turd, before and after its NA release, I was anticipating this game. It's fast, fun, and the tracks are awesome. Plus, the music is great in the cheesiest possible way. Good work, Shin'en Multimedia, as always.



IronMan28 commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and...:

Smash for 3DS/Wii U will be very tough for Sakurai to follow. I sort of feel bad for the guy. Personally, I don't have a lot of ideas on how to "add" to the game, especially since that really isn't my job as a fan, but I believe Sakurai or someone on his team is more than capable of thinking of ways to improve on the series.



IronMan28 commented on Hitoshi Yamagami Talks a Bit About Shin Megami...:

Personally I think this game looks pretty fun, but that's just me. Regardless, for those that wanted a "Wii U Fire Emblem," that was a long shot to begin with. Although, I will say that it's more probable that NX gets one. Every Nintendo spin-off/franchise will get dragged into HD eventually, well, every one that's ever mattered.



IronMan28 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo is Right to Move On Fr...:

@HawkeyeWii Unfortunately, you're mostly right. It's pretty sad gamers were basically too bigoted to give it a try. Perhaps "bigoted" is too strong a word, but the idea fits.

Anyway, this article is spot-on, the Wii name needs to go away. As much as I've come to enjoy the Wii systems, many people irrationally hate the brand. Side note: anyone notice how Nintendo seems to be the only major player in the console space that has to constantly reinvent itself to stay relevant?



IronMan28 commented on Feature: The Twilight Princess HD Fan Project ...:

If you thought the newest Zelda game, or even worse, a remake of an old one would look as good or better than the tech demo at E3, you're pretty delusional, have a short memory, or are very young. At Spaceworld in 2000, Nintendo showed that awesome looking tech demo of Link and Ganondorf fighting, and everyone practically had a heart attack, and then we got WW.

Obviously WW and that demo look different, and Zelda U and TP HD look just as different from the tech demo as WW did back then. Plain and simple, never expect Zelda tech demos to look remotely like the finished product, you're setting yourself up for disappointment.



IronMan28 commented on Feature: Memories of Court Battles in Mario Te...:

@rjejr Lol, you couldn't be more right. They act like that game doesn't exist. To be fair, it doesn't really appeal to me, anyway. Space constraints keep me from being able to have enough people over to make either Mario Tennis or Amiibo festival fun, so it doesn't bother me as much as I joke it does.
