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.



IronMan28 commented on Feature: A Glimpse Behind the Scenes of FAST R...:

Maybe we'll get this the second week of December? Good 'ol Bill Trinen said it would launch in "early December" on that Direct, if memory serves. Anyway, I loved the first one and can't wait to try its sequel out.



IronMan28 commented on Rejoice, The Wii U Has Finally Outsold Sega's ...:

Actually, according to one source (I'll link it) DC was on the market for the same time to get fewer sales than Wii U. It also took a bunch of price cuts on the DC to get to 10.6 million.

Wii U isn't selling well, there is no denying that, but it's not selling worse than DC did and its software sales are much stronger than Sega's last foray into consoles.



IronMan28 commented on Interview: 13AM Games on Getting Up to Speed W...:

@shani You're probably right, bigger publishers are risk averse in part because HD development is still expensive. Of course, it's a two (three?) way street, and Nintendo consumers, as well as Nintendo, aren't off the hook. I'm one of the few Nintendo hardcore that buys third-party games regularly, not just DI and Skylanders, either. Nintendo is also apparently a bit closed to third parties, which I'm not completely sure I believe, but people say it all the time. But hey, pointing fingers doesn't do much. And yes, I can't wait for this game either, it was fun based on the E3 preview build.



IronMan28 commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

@IceClimbers Actually, the brand has been largely a money sink for MS, but they use it as a means of getting their OS to more people. Apparently some of the board members have wanted Ballmer (not sure on spelling there) to spin the brand off. Stark contrast with Sony, whose PS is the only thing keeping the company relevant. Both MS and Sony aren't doing very well on the whole, tbh.



IronMan28 commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

It's funny how people compartmentalize to keep the stereotypes strong in their mind. Wii U has had plenty of third-party support, just not the same extent as PS4 and Xbox One. The problem with relying on Indies is that people already have in their mind that they're largely not worth purchasing a console for, even if they exist alongside awesome (primarily) exclusive retail games in Nintendo's case. Xbox One and PS4 had the same issues as Wii U did at and after launch, yet nobody cared. Know why? Because nobody wanted Wii U to succeed. Plain and simple.



IronMan28 commented on Nintendo Releases Genyo Takeda's Full Eulogy ...:

One day we had Iwata, the next we didn't. Just shows how impermanent things are in life like the Buddhists say. I was surprised I literally cried when I heard Iwata passed away because I've never met him. Don't know him in any personal fashion, but I guess sadness doesn't have to make sense all the time.



IronMan28 commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

Games like Splatoon show that the GamePad has a place, and sometimes games like Bayo 2 and Devil's Third come along and prove the Pro Controller works well. I think both are good devices, and I still love the GamePad, sorry haters.



IronMan28 commented on Multiple Sources Point to Nintendo of America ...:

"There were people inside of Nintendo's Treehouse who didn't believe Devil's Third was a quality game."

I still say that matters, even if everyone here asserts that with "patches and DLC" a game can become good. You guys always complain about NoA, but I personally feel like they might have been right with their first instinct based on that preview.
