I love everything Nintendo, but also enjoy gaming on other consoles. My first game was Mega Man 3, and my all time favorite is MH4U. Also a HUGE fan of DKC and Fire Emblem. I own a Wii U, PS4, X1, 3DS and Vita. And of course, a Gamecube and Wii.

Hmm, only ever say anything positive.

Not true.

I just don't complain much. Unlike some chronic complainers in here (cough cough) where that's all they ever do.

I complain about Nintendo about as much as I complain about Sony on PushSquare, and definitely more than I complain about MS on Pure Xbox.

You can't run that faulty argument on me.

Oh so now I eat up crap? Fantastic logical deduction there. My comment on toys and games equates to me eating up crap and not knowing the difference. Amazing how you derived that.

And what's it to you what I play and enjoy? Worry about yourself. I buy and play whatever I like and enjoy. And I don't need you telling me my preferences are crap, friend.

I eat up only the best, most of which is On Nintendo platforms.

And had they announced they were no longer making video games and instead will make toys, maybe I could see a point somewhere in there.

But they didn't stop making games, in fact the toys are FOR those very games.

So what you're saying makes no sense. Of course this gen is about games. Hence why they're still making games.

At the end of the day, whatever they gotta do to keep those games coming, I'm all for it. And if you like playing fun games, you should be too.

And go take a look at the BILLIONS made.

And dang right he made money with toys. You act like that's something to be ashamed of. It's not. Just like Sony didn't make money selling anything other than TV's for nearly a decade. But you're kidding yourself if you think that's the only thing Nintendo has made money on in the last 13 years.

In case you think the Wii never sold 40 million copies of Mario Kart, or however many tens of millions of copies of Smash.

Or take a look at the scores of 3DS and Wii U games that are million sellers.

To say their games haven't sold is a very ignorant thing to do.

There's always reasons. Nintendo has reasons too. Nintendo's first console did well- so did Sony's. Yet MS didn't. And no one knows if Sony is done with handhelds, all we know is they're done with Vita. Until they say "we aren't making any more handhelds", there's no reason to think they won't make another

Doesn't matter.

Money is money, regardless of how they made it.

And amiibo, again, was a result of Iwata.

The people who were calling for him to step down only did so impulsively. Neglecting the successful turnaround of Wii when he took over after Gamecube, ignoring success of DS, ignoring success of 3DS, and ignoring the success of amiibo.

One bad selling console and all the other record breakers mean nothing to those people. Those calls were ignorant, and they see now that EVEN with one of their worst selling consoles, Iwata still knew how to turn it into a profit.

The next guy could ruin the company for all anyone knows.

I don't think they're "happy Iwata kicked the bucket".

I think they're "happy Nintendo made a lot of money, even more than expected. And that was under Iwata's leadership.

If what you're saying we're true, it would have happened when the news broke of his death, not news of Nintendo's large profits.

@Captain_Gonru
Monster Hunter is actually not dependent on multiplayer at all.

It's highly recommended, and definitely the most fun and the preferred way to play of many, but the game has a fantastic single player campaign that is completely independent of online. And most people get at least 100 hours just from that. Heck, MH3U on 3DS didn't even have online- most people had to play alone

@NintyMan
Well first of all I didn't know voting was still open, but nonetheless I'm pretty sure most people who wanted to vote have done so by now, and it may be like the mail in ballots of a presidential election, for example. Sure there's still more votes coming in but unless it's neck and neck, it's going to be negligible. Certainly not enough to turn the tide.

Or who knows, Im just speculating here. But it seems like the most plausible explanation. Unless they just wanted to give fans something now to tide them over.

@mystman12
Keep in mind the entire Smash community was voting, not just you. You obviously wanted K Rool as a playable character but that doesn't mean he won the majority votes, or even came close for that matter.

He was probably next in line on the list after the three highest votes, or however many they're making characters for. Meaning he lost the vote but they're still tossing fans a bone by making a costume. Which I think is a very generous gesture. They could've just not done anything. And to be perfectly honest that's kind of what I was expecting- one character wins the vote and that's it.

Actually I still bought the faceplates regardless. At least the Fire Emblem Fates and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate ones anyways.

What, you thought a little water could separate me from my Fire Emblem and Monster Hunter merch? Haha, never

Ya it's a solid game.

Personally I like the method and approach of Fire Emblem- a franchise of which I've never seen an equal (save perhaps Jeanne d' Arc on PSP). But for the Tactics styled approach it ain't bad. Especially for $5

@Rafie
At the end of the day, we're just people who enjoy playing games using a controller to interact with a displayed video signal.

Consoles arent perfect. None. All have appeal as long as you find games on that particular system you like playing.

I like the Wii U because every year I get roughly 8 good, solid, standout games to play on it (which averages to be one excellent game every month and a half). In addition to a good 25 amazing VC games and the occasional indie. That's why I like it. And it should be noted that at least 3 of those games every year are consistently top contenders for my fave games of all time list.

It's not a master-console that provides every game you'll ever want to play in your life. No console does that. Ya I'm missing tons of games on Wii U, just like I'm missing tons of games on PS4 and X1 and 3DS and Vita. Each system has a strong suit that it brings to the table, and I value each of those individually.

I love the Wii U for all it gives me, but it's not all I want. I love the PS4 for all it gives me, but it's not all I want. I love 3DS for all it gives me, but it's not all I want.

The fact is if you like playing video games and invest more than a casual amount of playtime every month, you're probably going to want to own 2 systems, maybe even more depending how much you play and how diverse your tastes are.

There's flaws with every system out there, I'm just too busy enjoying what these consoles DO provide to care much.

And maybe it's something where you have to own all platforms to understand this perspective. But I see most people so focused on what they're not getting that they never stop to appreciate what they are. As a true and dedicated gamer I commit myself to buy all platforms each generation so that I don't have to worry about coveting what I'm not getting. I can spend each and every minute of my gaming time appreciating what each console DOES offer. Which is as it should be.

@ultraraichu
It's actually not a Nendoroid. I was just talking about this with the OP, but that's the only Chrom figure to date. It's a Chara Form figure. I've never bought Chara Form before but when I learned they made a Chrom Figure I jumped on it.

I got mine off OtakuMode.com for $37 shipped (they had it on sale plus I had $5 in TOM points for joining). Cheapest I've seen it yet, in case you're interested. Also on Amiami I believe? Ya I think so

@TomServo_89
It kind of surprised me that's the only Chrom figure available to date. He wasn't in Smash so he missed out on an Amiibo (though I'm grateful for the 5 we are getting, but also no Figma, no scale model, no Nendoroid, nothing.

I'm hoping we'll see a scale model for Chrom at some point, although by the time the Cordelia statue releases, Fates should be released in the west. And I'm expecting the figures to shift to characters in that entry once it releases.

JaxonH commented on Awesome New Nendoroids are Unveiled at Wonder ...:

@ultraraichu
No, this is a figure of the character Marth, not Lucina who went by the alias of Marth. Two completely separate characters.

And I'm buying them all!

Just bought all 4 of the Monster Hunter Nendoroids, the Zero Suit Samus 1/8 scale model , Tharja (FE Awakening) 1/7 scale model and pre ordered the Cordelia (FE Awakening) 1/7 scale model, the Link, Samus, Pit and Dark Pit Figmas, and the eCapcom exclusive Monster Hunter swordsman figure in Rathalos armor.

And this baby right here

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

I just play video games.

And Wii U has some fantastic video games to play.

I cherish the system. I play it more than Xbox One or Vita, and about the same as PS4 and 3DS.

I try to stay away from all the politics and "logical reasons" why it shouldn't be admired (arguments using logic like "well game A, B and C isn't available, therefore system = bad)

Does it have its flaws? Sure. Do I enjoy the heck out of it regardless? You bet.

Reggie wasn't lying. Nintendo really has tripled their output in NA.

They just announced to the entire world the exact time it was going live, on one of the largest websites in the world and one that ships globally at that.

And it STILL lasted an hour.

I've had my wave 5a since they released in EU well over a month ago, BUT, this is for my sealed NA set.

Already got wave 5B which arrived the other day. And I've had Yarn Yoshi's for months. And got pre orders locked in for 8-bit Mario, Chibi Robo bundle and the wave 6 Miis already.

It's marketing, something people on this site are always complaining they don't do enough of.

Hey I like the rjejr tin foil hat. It's rather trendy nowadays. And be sure to check the house for bugs so the NSA doesn't spy on you ;)

How's it been going lately? Sorry I haven't had much time to respond lately. Been rather busy lately. But hey I got a promotion to "Quality II Programmer" the other day, so that's cool. You need any amiibo? I'm selling off all my extras (had 50+ duplicates and it was beginning to be too much). Don't have but maybe 17 left but maybe there's something you've been wanting? Thought I'd ask before the rest are sold out.

EDIT: Ok I said "lately" like way too many times in those first few sentences lol

JaxonH commented on Nintendo Explains Reasoning Behind Upcoming Mi...:

Miiverse is not the N-Life forum, or Reddit. It's part of the platform ecosystem meant to facilitate user input into the gaming experience. As far as the 30 post limit, the way I see it is if you're posting more than 30 times a day you're spamming. And I hate it when people spam Miiverse. I go to a games community and see 17 consecutive posts from the same user, and another 50 out of the hundred prior to that. It's ridiculous. I actually commented to reply to this one kid because he had somehow managed to fill a community with over 200 posts. He literally WAS the community he was posting so much. And when I think about stuff like that I can't help but agree with what they're doing.

I'm also glad to see they're giving it an overhaul because it really needed one. Miiverse is cool but it can be so much more. And I hope to see them take it there.

@sakuraichu
Except for the fact that if I want to comment on a post, or help answer a question on topic, I may not want to weed through 37 irrelevant comments to see if the question has already been answered.

Eh, what a crock. Any game can run on any system. 25fps after a lousy 6 month is pretty good tbh. Had they invested half the effort into this version as the others they'd have it running just fine. Bunch of lying snakes trying to weasel their way out of responsibility. When they were looking for money it was a different story.

Take your game elsewhere and keep it. Cause I'm certainly not buying it- not on NX or any other system.

In fact I take that back. I hope they do port to NX just so I can have the pleasure of not buying it all over again.

@97alexk
Wanting a Rayman game like Rayman 2 is fine and well, but don't discount these games. Splinter Cell Blacklist and Rayman Legends are among the best games on Wii U. And personally I think Origins and Legends are far better than any of the previous entries...

If I didn't own them already, I'd be all over:

Splinter Cell Blacklist
Assassins Creed 3
Assassins Creed 4
Watch Dogs
Child of Light
Rayman Legends
Rayman Origins

You could grab every game on that list for less than $90.

That's the way to do it...
