@DarkKirby I've already spoiled myself, but I won't give specifics. The 3rd path does have the best and "canon" ending, but the two games themselves are still pretty important in building up to that 3rd ending. Heck, one of the big twists is given in Nohr, while in the DLC it is only mentioned at the end.

@Xenocity Because not all gamers want the same thing. Over one million gamers are playing Splatoon, so that is moot.

And this crap about Retro "mistreating" gamers by not releasing sequel upon sequel of the same series. How many DKC games did they make? 2. How many Metroid Prime? 3. I remember all those reactions to "another DK game?" and how ridiculous they were.

Also, Fatal Frame isn't hardcore? Zelda isn't hardcore? Bayonetta isn't hardcore? Wtf was "hardcore" before the past 2 years anyway?

And how the hell are gamers being "horribly treated" by the Wii U? Oh, it doesn't have Metroid, woe is me? Is that it?

@Xenocity: Don't speak for the masses like they only want one thing. If YOU want a new Metroid title, that's fine, but don't twist the argument as if EVERYONE wants it.

I have recalled quite a few posts asking Retro to make something original, hence "gamers" also ask for an original title.

Also, selling out is not what you think it is. Matter of fact, your example isn't anywhere near close to the actual definition, culture or no culture.

The one thing that bugs me about some JRPGs in particular is why Japanese devs think it is okay to have random encounters that can kill the party without breaking a sweat. They seem to think that it is "difficulty", but in reality it's just stupid.

Update: For anyone who is interested in Doug TenNapel, do a google search and discuss elsewhere. This is not the place for political or religious discussion.

For the purpose of this comments section, only discuss the game and series itself and whether or not you'd buy the game if it came out. To clarify, you are entitled to not support it because of Doug's views, but do not discuss his views directly here.

Interesting ideas...

Advance Wars is possible, but I don't think there's an audience big enough for it to go mobile. Then again, I may be surprised.

Warioware is feasible due to its nature.

Dr. Mario or some other puzzle game would be good.

Anywho, back to topic, while it does seem visually impressive, I'm not moved at all. I prefer the much more colorful and simple design of Ocarina on the N64 and 3DS. I'm not a big fan of realism, though I am occasionally impressed by large improvements.

@Nerevar I'm not sure if you are a flaming bait troll, but if you are being serious here, then let me point out some flaws in your argument. I will ignore the more opinionated points since, well, they are opinions.

"All of their consoles are s generation behind" Actually just two are behind if you want to be technical.

"The game cube? What an embarrassment. The Wii was a joke. The Wii u while better is also a joke. There's no improving going on." You seem to be confused here about what "improve" means. It can mean taking small steps going up. The Wii U is an obvious improvement due to its bigger game capacity, higher resolution, and bigger specs over the Wii. Then again, that somehow is not an improvement at all...

"And then there's the ps vita witch actually tried to modernise handheld gaming but it's been struggling." Probably because Sony failed to strike a chord with the market. They royally screwed up the launch with those memory cards and failed to give most people a reason to own a Vita. Sony also tried the PSP Go and that failed miserably.

"Instead of truely moving forward they're happy to keep taking people's money without bringing something worth while to the table" Nintendo DS introduced a second screen and was a smash hit, but I guess that doesn't count for anything...

"That's basically what Nintendo is now, a toy manufacturer ripping people off with their 'mascots'" Uh...most toy companies "rip people off" with mascots. Matter of fact, what is your point here?

Are you convinced that upgraded graphics are the only improvements in gaming?
