I personally can't wait for this game, I beat Epic Yarn a few years ago and would love to play another side-scrolling game in a yarn based world. People act like shooters are all the same, just like they pretend all 2D games are the same, they just apply the label when it's something they don't want, or don't want to want. My hype is still pretty high for this one.

IronMan28 commented on Project CARS Studio Boss Admits to Problems Wi...:

Anyone telling themselves a game coming out later on a console with a smaller userbase isn't a factor in sales is as delusional as the people they call out. Seriously, it matters, most games sell a good chunk of their sales within the first two months of launch. I won't call the devs lazy, but acting like this isn't an example of a studio knowing the hardware like the back of their hands is when games can run at around 60 fps consistently is ludicrous. And if I have to spell that out to you, it shows that since Nintendo works on its own hardware, it can make games that perform exceptionally. Get over yourself, you look for any reason to act like it's the fans and the system.

I usually buy digital now because of space constraints, but I didn't realize it was essentially a licensing agreement to download. Should've assumed that gaming companies didn't want people to actually own what they get digitally. Then again, we're in no power position because we're consumers. We always get the short end of the stick.

@rjejr "Hope you enjoy S&S2. I'll be pestering you at some point in the future about it. We're still on the fence due to the price."

I'll let you know relatively soon, things are crazy at home between school , my 14-month-old daughter and obvious responsibilities to my wife. If the wife lets me play soon, I'll be happy to let you know what it's like.

@rjejr I don't know if the team was inspired by that game, but if you mean "anyone" I've mentioned it several times, and it's been dismissed by gamers of all walks of life. It's pretty sad that game has largely been ignored because it's really fun and charming, but such is life.

@ikki5 " I don't want to back it unless I know it is going to make that $3,000,000 to get it to the Wii U because I don't want to support something when I am not sure if it is going to make my platform"

I'm slightly selfish like you, I feel the same way. That's what I did with Hover and that's what I'll do here. I have an Xbox One but I don't usually buy indies for it unless there is literally no chance of the game going anywhere else, which is rare.

@Kirk It really isn't preaching to the choir, a lot of people think games like Swords & Soldiers 2 et al. are over-priced, a sentiment I disagree with completely. People don't seem to understand why paying bottom dollar for games hurts them in the long term, but few people think that way, anyway.

@Uberchu "yeah... no. if Nintendo goes PS or Xbox im out. they make you pay for online. IDC how good their bundles are, its crap and I won't stand for it. I hardly ever use online, but I will if I ever get splatoon."

I tend to agree with you, a third-party Nintendo won't be as attractive as people think it will be. That is, unless consoles aren't a thing anymore anyway, but that won't be for a while.

@rockodoodle I'm not saying they don't exist, just that Nintendo is being a little wild with their claims. Let's be honest with ourselves, Nintendo makes awesome consoles, but Sony and MS's ads have convinced people they NEED their respective consoles. Nintendo hasn't done the same thing, unfortunately for fans.

@Flopsy86 "We may never see any sequels to this game now let alone any more games of this kind and that does annoy me a bit being a fan."

Well, at least you're not speaking in absolutes, but I think we'll eventually see one. It was more due to reviews and some odd design choices the game didn't sell well, plus, it's pretty damn quirky. Quirky only helps if a game is awesome. It's kind of like a fat guy who talks to himself aloud vs. a good looking guy who talks to himself aloud. One is unique, and the other is insane or sad and pathetic, and I'm sure you can figure out which is which. Also, I'm sure you can figure out which one CNS is, as well.

"Perhaps I'm a hopeless idealist yearning for the days when creators were supported, not simply sources of low-cost or free entertainment. I only hope there are a good number of other hopeless idealists that agree with me."

I am with you, I understand how economics works, and keeping prices too low actually hurts consumers in the long run. Simply put, I have the means to buy games I want, and I support those that I feel I should, regardless of price. Am I better than you? Not by a long shot, I just understand that if I want games to come to my favorite system, I buy the ones that I like there.

"There are a whole load of non-Wii U owning, lapsed Nintendo fans out there who will be tipped over the edge by Splatoon."

Not likely, those people are Sony fanboys now. Former Nintendo fans think the console maker's games only belong on PS4. Not going to get them back.

@Fee You're probably right, even if it doesn't make sense for them to have expected it. Although, we'd be crazy to think it won't get at least a passing mention because the press will bug the crap out of Nintendo about the device, whatever it is.

I had one D/C and could only play a few rounds b/c of homework, taking my wife and daughter out, and things of that nature. It was pretty fun and I think it's a balancing act with the test fires because while they could've added more time, giving people too much would have the opposite effect of building hype. Sure wasn't the perfect amount of runs, but it was enough to get a nice idea of how the game will turn out.

@NintyMan "But for Wii U, I expect there to be at least one other major game to feature along with Star Fox for this Fall and Christmas season."

Well, there's at least Mario Maker, XCX, Fatal Frame (for the west), Wooly World (NA) and probably something else I'm forgetting. Of course, that is assuming you mean games we already know about... If not, there ya' go.

@ikki5 "Nintendo said they were not going to talk about the NX this year"
That apparently isn't enough to convince people it won't happen...

@BinaryFragger "If that's the case, shouldn't their games sell like hotcakes on PC/PS4/XB1?"

While I agree with this sentiment, and all of your post, I must say it still plays into what I was implying. Third-party Nintendo would be good for maybe a generation or two, then go to hell. That's been the general pattern for the other companies that did the same thing. And it's definitely a catch 22 with the mobile games situation, gives people no reason to buy Nintendo consoles if they can play them on a device they already own. I personally hate the move for a number of reasons, but maybe consoles will be dead altogether in a generation or two anyway. Who knows?

@Superryanworld I couldn't agree with you more.

@rjejr Lol, sorry about that one, don't know what happened. Gotta forgive the horrible copy-paste, I have ADD and am currently in school, so that was probably from one of my various papers and my mind was in a million places then. Sorry about that.

IronMan28 commented on Nintendo Share Value Increases With Profits an...:

I think it's a horrible move for them to put games on any other devices while having their own consoles. You're not Google or Amazon, this is a much different market than what those two companies compete in, Nintendo. It's virtually impossible for a video game company to be a console manufacturer and part third-party developer at the same time. Hasn't happened before, and probably nothing will change that. Iwata claims he believes incentivizing those that buy games on multiple devices will entice people to buy their hardware.

What the current guy in charge thinks we don't know is that since plenty of people already have PCs, smartphones, and tablets, they have no reason to buy Nintendo consoles because they can just get them elsewhere. Unless the only way people get discounts on Nintendo games is having a Nintendo console in addition to a tablet, smartphone, or PC with the new ID program, I don't see the discounts enticing people to buy Nintendo HW. Let's be honest, Nintendo probably does not want to "force" people to buy their hardware, and people will not see a reason to buy it if they can get good enough games on smart devices and PCs, and discounts if they get Nintendo games on smart devices and PCs without buying Nintendo consoles. This is likely the first step in them going third-party, which is horrible news for Nintendo fans and gamers in general, both of which don't know it yet. Look at any company that started out as HW manufacturers that went software only, it's been pretty ugly in the long term. What's worse is some brilliant minds here and in various gaming outlets think it's better for Nintendo to go third-party, which is foolish and short-sighted for so many reasons. Some of us like to have fewer console competitors because we don't get that when there are fewer choices, the remaining parties can charge whatever the hell they want, and it won't be what they're charging now.

If EA, Activision, or "any other company" put games on Wii U, then we'd actually know how Nintendo fans would react when it comes to those companies and issues like this. Until then, you can't speculate on how many would react to those companies doing something like what Nintendo is doing w/ Splatoon. And yes, I do support DLC in general, when it's good, regardless of where it comes from.

"These plans include Animal Crossing amiibo cards that will become available by the end of 2015, and a free-to-download app for Wii U called amiibo tap..."

That bit is interesting. It implies that the AC game coming out will not be F2P, something one NL apparently doesn't believe.

I'm not a big Konami person, I do like Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania, but not much else from them impresses me atm. It's too bad for them if they are experiencing trouble, which seems a bit more common for larger studios than it should. Hopefully they get back on their feet.

" It's a slight oddity that there's hype around N64 games on Wii U, for example, when there are plenty of them in the Wii Mode."

I've said this for a while, albeit for a different reason than why you're saying it. I think it's crazy that fans are unwilling to go to Wii mode to play N64 VC games. You think it's a sign that the service is outdated.

@rjejr "No way no how does Zelda get delayed until NX. NX is only going to be "officially" announced in 2016 for a 2017 holiday release, Zelda will be out in 2016 making extensive use of the Gamepad for which it has been built from the ground up. You can't have a Nintnedo home console w/o a real Zelda game. You just can't, it's Zelda. I'm OK w/ no Metroid."

That's my thinking, an original Zelda not being on Wii U would be pretty unheard of. With TP, at least GCN already had WW, Wii U has no original Zelda to call its own. Not to slight the device, but whatever NX is, I hope it doesn't get the Zelda that's supposed to be only for Wii U.

@IceClimbers "At least all of the news is clear and not scattered :P"

Lol, you've got that right. And yes, it does seem that the press twists Nintendo's words regardless. With Directs we do get to see the information without any commentary from the press, and the commentary is usually really annoying at that. Only some companies get regular breaks from the press, Nintendo ain't one of 'em.

I threw money at the screen, and it worked. No telling what they'll give backers later on, like Yacht Club Games to SK backers.

Anyway, I can't wait for this game, and I do have doubts it's going to make the October 2016 release. But who knows? These guys do have a lot of experience and tons of cash. Not that that guarantees a release of Oct. 2016, but still, it bodes well.

Also, @Alundra-1998, you don't get charged until a set time. Basically, they do it sometime after the game is funded. Not sure when this particular campaign will charge you, but it's not instant.
