kkslider5552000 commented on Square Enix To Focus Less on the 'Global Aspec...:

@V8_Ninja I don't entirely disagree but it's pretty obvious there's still a real, substantial audience despite the late 2000s (as in the previous decade...) being really bad over here sales-wise outside of some 360 titles (which makes too little sense to me). But look where we are now:

-Persona 4 is one of the only Vita titles people actually bought (barring indies),
-Xenoblade is the most popular new IP Nintendo's pulled out of the post-casual age (though I'm not including Nintendo Land)
-X is one of the only Wii U games people actually care about
-Ni No Kuni did far better than I would've guessed
-Fire Emblem: Awakening is the first game in the series to actually matter outside of Japan since literally the first time Fire Emblem was released outside of Japan
-Not to mention Dark Souls as a whole, though most probably don't actually consider it a JRPG I think
-Ubisoft is making a JRPG
-SE announcing last year the 2 sequels everyone actually wanted (barring TWEWY of course :p)

Basically everything notable in the genre is exceeding expectations over here. I mean I guess it isn't capturing the mass audience's attention like in the FFVII days, but being relevant to gamers doesn't mean it has to be relevant to everyone. That's really all I want at this point, just for some good quality, interesting JRPGs that people actually care about.



kkslider5552000 commented on Less Than 5% of Those Polled by the Game Devel...:

@Peach64 You do realize that
1. Most of the top 10 best selling titles were multi-console games that most hardcore gamers (even fans of Bioshock Infinite or TLOU) more often than not didn't care about right? I looked at the best selling software list, it was just a confirmation that what hardcore gamers care about is increasingly irrelevant.
2. Yeah Nintendo's stuff sells the best but there was no way like half of the 3rd party stuff on 3DS should have found the level of success it did (see: niche japanese games and indies) and the games consistently make money from what I understand. I would think consistently making money would be a good thing. EO4's success is still bizarre to me.



kkslider5552000 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime: Petitions Don't Affect Ninte...:

Yeah, that sounds about right. Nintendo has no reason to believe a game will sell just because a few thousand people said they want it once on the internet. I was kinda worried Reggie was gonna actively deny that fans do anything because that would be a BAD BAD BAD STUPID BAD idea to say, especially from Nintendo, especially right now. Presumably the more notable efforts give them a reason to take a 2nd look at possible successes but it would be dumb to ever assume internet popularity reflects anything, that is often a bad risk to take. And quite frankly, Operation Rainfall was a very much right time right place sort of thing in the first place, most petitions and the like do not even begin to matter as much as that.

That being said, I still think anyone who denies that Nintendo going against their usual business practices (See: Sin and Punishment 2's sales disaster) to focus on super cheap, Gamestop only localization/using the help of XSEED, all of which were publicly and to these companies suggested as a way to localize these games for cheap...seriously to imply OPRainfall had nothing to do with it is just lying. Period. It's just that they were smart enough to find a way to apparently prove that the game they want would actually make money.



kkslider5552000 commented on Watch_Dogs Pushed Back to Spring 2014:'t say I saw this coming.

I don't consider this a bad thing though. It's an open world game that would've come out less than a month after AC4 and if that means it's better, I'm not gonna be mad. does the universe want me to support indies.

You know, if stupid people wanted to not know what the lyrics of the song were, they could've at least complained when the song actually came out OVER A YEAR AGO.

These are probably the same morons that still think Born in the USA is a pro-American song.



kkslider5552000 commented on EA Executive: Shigeru Miyamoto is 'Falling Dow...:

@Kyloctopus Your opinion doesn't matter, considering how Wii Music and Nintendogs are a pretty good part of Nintendo's modern success.

also anyone who thinks Miyamoto forced the latest Paper Mario to have no story on a whim should know this is based on some idiotic survey in Japan where apparently no one care about the story in the previous game.



kkslider5552000 commented on EA Executive: Shigeru Miyamoto is 'Falling Dow...:

Getting past everything else, Miyamoto has had less to do with Nintendo's direction for quite a while now. So even if you believe this, Miyamoto is not the guy responsible for a large majority of what Nintendo has done in recent years. Like his role seems to be some vague role of looking over what other leaders in the company are doing and giving advice. And making Pikmin 3.

Of course, I am not getting into:
1. The fact that you have to be far more intelligent than this person could ever hope to be expected to insult Miyamoto and look like the better man.
2. EA's reputation (especially with Nintendo fans) making it difficult to make this look anything other than millionaires being butthurt that Nintendo isn't doing what THEY exactly want (even ignoring the Origin rumors).
3. The disrespect of a guy more respected, well remembered, KNOWN BY PEOPLE and successful than he could ever hope to be.
4. The tired, short-sighted ideas that EA continues to have in terms of TEH FUTURE OF GAMING~! I mean at least they acknowledge the importance of games beyond mobile but

And you need to go to that link guys, it is astoundingly bad.



kkslider5552000 commented on Leaked Ubisoft Games Confirmed, but Skipping N...:

I'd say this is a non-story so far. Maybe for other devs it wouldn't be, but Ubisoft basically said that their upcoming Wii U ports and the like would determine if they would continue supporting the system (that's what I got out of interviews anyway). As we're 1 for 2 for success on Wii U and the it took them a while to announce Nintendo ports for anything, I don't think we can say whether X game will be on Wii U or not yet.



kkslider5552000 commented on Nintendo: Wii U Fire Emblem Would Need To Sell...:

Well they're already making a crossover game with SMT. I think we can wait for a while a new console FE. Probably better to continue the momentum they have on 3DS anyway.

Also, only 700,000 for an HD title? Pfft, they need to learn from SE and need to sell millions for their game to actually sell a profit. :p



kkslider5552000 commented on Zelda-Inspired Ittle Dew Heading To The Wii U ...:

Ok guys, there's a thin line between homage and plagiarism...luckily this is nowhere near that line because wow they aren't even hiding it. I mean I'm not annoyed by it beyond the fact that barring the art style, it just doesn't look that good. I hate saying that about any Zelda-like



kkslider5552000 commented on Rumour: Metroid Blasting Onto The Wii U Virtua...:

@Newtwo I'd suggest Super Metroid over it. The original game will frustrate you unless you really know what you're doing.

Also, wow they're re-releasing Metroid! I've never seen that before! ...except I had Metroid Prime, Fusion and the GBA/GCN cable...and the GBA remake...and the original version inside the GBA remake...and the NES re-release on GBA...and it was on Wii's virtual console...and 3DS...



kkslider5552000 commented on Miyamoto: Fresh Experiences Make A New Game, N...:

He has a point. I mean I kinda question how many of these games just happened to always make sense for like Mario. Yep, when I think of Tennis I sure do think about an Italian plumber who throws fireballs at turtles. But that being said, there's some good points to that. There are plenty of games this generation that were just trying to be Call of Duty and just because it was a new IP with a couple of new ideas didn't suddenly make it not a Call of Duty knockoff (looking at you Homefront). Even if I was still a fan of CoD, a new F Zero and Metroid game that just plays like how you would expect them to is far more unique in gaming than a new IP that just plays like Call of Duty.



kkslider5552000 commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I'd like to get some new games but right now I am juggling replaying games (Cave Story and Ninja Gaiden Xbox), doing multiplayer and finding the remaining boos after beating Dark Moon's story and finally playing Mass Effect 3. Not even sure what I'll do with my recently bought Ogre Battle 64.



kkslider5552000 commented on Fan Campaign Starts for Princess Zelda to be G...:

The most important thing I got out of this is that apparently no one played Spirit Tracks. You know, the game where you COULD CONTROL ZELDA AND SHE WAS A CHARACTER WHO INTENTIONALLY WAS A PARODY OF STUPID PRINCESSES. WHO THEN GOT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT OF SORTS TO BE MORE THAN A STUPID PRINCESS. THAT GAME MIGHT BE RELEVANT TO THE DISCUSSION. Ok enough caps lock but seriously...

I mean Zelda kicking butt outside of Smash Bros sounds fun but only if the game devs can do something really worthwhile with it.



kkslider5552000 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Third-Party Concern...:

I think this article undervalues the 3rd party 3DS games being released (though so do most people, so fair enough). A lot of the more interesting japanese games in recent memory are coming to 3DS and Nintendo has said they are actively trying to publish games like Bravely Default and the like, not to mention the somewhat underrated eShop. One of the reasons the 3DS is so dominating in Japan in particular is because of 3rd parties. Between AA, MH, SMT, and lots of others, it is basically unstoppable there. Nintendo will honestly earn (re-earn I suppose) my undying loyalty if they can bring that success to America.
