LunarFlame17 commented on Remake Request: ActRaiser:

Oh man that game was soooooooo good. I was so disappointed that ActRaiser 2 stripped out the world-building elements. Such a frustratingly dull game compared to the outstanding original.

@Marshi I wouldn't argue that Nintendo is doing great. They're not doing nearly as badly as analysts and pundits would have you believe, but if you look at their financial results recently, they're either taking a loss or just barely making a profit. Not disastrous, but not great either.

I probably would have voted for Bravely Default as 3DS third-Party game of the year, but it's not out in the US yet, so I haven't played. My vote was for Etrian Odyssey IV, but Shin Megami Tensei IV was a close second. Man, such a good year to be a Nintendo fan, even with Nintendo's financial woes!

My quick thought on this matter is: would you rather Nintendo add new dungeons and/or other new content to Wind Waker HD, or take that time and money and invest it into the next brand new Zelda for Wii U? I know I'd much rather have the latter. As awesome as a completely retooled Wind Waker would be, if it came at the cost of negatively impacting the new Zelda (and it would - both games are being made by the same team), it wouldn't be worth it to me.

This hardly sounds like something to get indignantly outraged about. So they made a big mistake. Big deal. Either they'll learn from it, or they won't. Either way, there'll be no lack of great video games to play, either on the Wii U, or on some other console.

LunarFlame17 commented on Investment Expert Feels Nintendo Earnings Miss...:

I will never understand the theory that Nintendo would make boatloads of cash if they ported their games to iOS and Android. Who would want to play a Mario game on a touchscreen? Besides, the real money in mobile is with free-to-play and games like Candy Crush Saga and Clash of Clans. I don't know that Nintendo has any interest in or would even be successful with such a strategy. If they plopped down a bunch of old games in the App Store and sold them for 5 bucks a pop, I think a bunch of people would buy them for the novelty, but they would quickly realize that Nintendo games are no fun on a touchscreen. I sincerely doubt that Nintendo would be able to turn that into a long-term, sustainable business.
