@bezerker99

Agreed. That was when I knew things had gotten out of hand. Gamestop did a really terrible thing that day. It was the very definition of "Bait and Switch." They deserved their servers to crash. I do feel bad for the employees though, they didn't get paid nearly enough that day.

@JaxonH

Well there was one jerk-off last night who went rouge on this site (I'm hoping they got banned, cause it was immature nonsense), but other than that, yeah I agree.

We haven't always agreed with him, but he was very good at his job, and being the face of the company. I personally, was always impressed with how he handled difficult situations. He always had a calm and graceful demeanor about him.

"respect"?! LMFAO!He isn't family or friend, just a man!"

Good heavens, you are on a roll. Yes, respect, as in respect for the dead. God, what's with you? Just because you didn't agree with him does not mean that you should show disrespect.

FYI, since you seem to have missed the etiquette class, you are being disrespectful right now. If you disagree with his policies, now is not the time to do so. Save that for the articles that talk about his policies, not his obituary.

"ok then. You have issues. My opinion, deal with it"

Ha! My issues are irrelevant. Indeed that is your opinion, which you are allowed to have, and speak out on. Just be aware that by saying such things the same day someone has passed, makes you look like a complete jerk-off while doing so.

"you people never knew the guy personally. He could have been a bossy and cold blooded man. He nearly sinked Nintendo with his stupid business decisions."

Dude, totally uncalled for, what is really the point of saying that? The man just died, so pardon me if I react to this in a sensitive manner.

Then later you say this directed to @invictus4000:

How shocking and sad... I know he was having trouble with this, but man, 55 is an age that is just too young to pass away at... My deepest sympathies to family, friends and his co-workers at Nintendo. Rest in peace Mr. Iwata, you will be missed.

Above all they need to get third parties back on board. I really hope they realize this.

I really hope the hybrid console is true. It's become obvious that Nintendo has a difficult time supporting both home and handheld consoles at the same time. Merging the two together would solve some of that.

MoonKnight7 commented on Devil's Third Will Be Released In North Americ...:

Obviously we need to look at this with an open mind. I don't think this necessarily means that it's a bad game, but perhaps NoA felt it was too violent. Being an American, they can get really weird about what's appropriate for over here. They censor the strangest things sometimes, like with FE: Awakening DLC for example.

Do not take this as i agree with these choices, btw, cause I don't. And yes, I'm aware that Bayonetta still made it over here. I'm just saying NoA gets weird sometimes.

Not saying that's what happened, maybe the game is just buggy, but I feel it's such an open ended comment.

"...these machines were designed so they would break often and require a Nintendo engineer to fix them - thereby generating additional profits for the company in the long run."

Sounds like what the market is today for most companies, just without the engineer.

MoonKnight7 commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

@TheLastLugia (@Quorthon)

To be fair, he is articulating motion controls as a "fad" in terms that it hasn't lived much beyond the Wii's lifespan. He isn't denying that the Wii was incredibly successful. That's how it became a "fad" in the first place, isn't it? The success of the Wii. Throwing out all those games and their sales numbers don't mean squat, and if anything proves his theory that it is a fad, when you look at the numbers between the Wii and the Wii U. It was the best selling home console for Nintendo, so it better have incredible software sales.

What he is describing is that the Wii's motion controls are the fad, or a gimmick. He doesn't need to back it up because the proof is right there in front of you. Everyone has dropped motion controls, and even Nintendo appears to be moving away from it.

Do motion controls still exist? Sure, but they do appear to be on the way out. He is describing it as a fad, as in it lasted about 1.5 generations. Look how quickly Microsoft dropped the Kinect to make it competitive with the PS4. They would much rather focus on the console itself than to rely on a gimmick that is clearly on the way out.

@Quorthon

I have to wonder what the play is here, assuming this is true. Are we going to get a "Wii U 2" just without the gamepad? Or is it going to be setup with another cheap gimmick...?

I almost wonder if it will play Wii U games in some way, even if they're downloaded and revised to drop the gamepad, after hearing this. If the hardware is underpowered from a PS4 perspective, wouldn't that mean it's power is close to that of the Wii U?

Regardless, given that this is true, the third parties won't come back. It's too much work for them to port games, yet again...

Sad face :(

I figured this was going to happen since NX is coming out mid-gen, but still it saddens me. This makes it more likely that we won't get the third parties back.

Please don't let it have a gimmick, please don't let it have a gimmick, please don't let it have a gimmick...

@Kaze_Memaryu

I dunno, I just feel like it's an unnecessary stance to take. That'd be like saying Jaws isn't a good film by today's standards because the shark looks fake. Everything is a reflection of its time; I would rather Jaws remain untouched, rather than pull a George Lucas who keeps tinkering with the old Star Wars films.

Atari games with basic sprites were also the first of their kind too, and look pretty terrible by today's 2D standards, but I'm not gonna knock good ol' Pitfall because the graphics look bad. It's a reflection of its time, so I'm not going to judge it by today's standards, because it's an unfair thing to do.

Besides, they already remade it for 3DS, so how much do you really want Nintendo to tinker with it?

@Kaze_Memaryu

"But this version came out now, almost 20 years after the original release, so it's only fair to judge it by this periods standards, and by todays advances, it's just not good. Not quite terrible, but after having basically every Zelda game after Ocarina of Time improve mechanics and aspects that were part of this, it's almost impossible to give it a passing grade anymore."

Wow, this part seems harsh for a game that will only just age. What are you going to say about it 20 years from now?

@rjejr

I'm trying to remember if the 3DS price cut brought the system below a break even point at $169. I honestly don't remember.

The Wii U price was barely making a profit at $350, so I assume that's why it took so long to get a price cut. In terms of what you said though, yeah I agree, the sales were simply that bad, that they should have cut the price more and sooner, and just eat the cost. I love the Wii U and all, but that damn gamepad screwed up pretty much everything.

MoonKnight7 commented on Nintendo NX Will Avoid The Launch Issues Which...:

Hahaha, they also said this after the botched 3DS launch, and promised the Wii U would not suffer the same outcome. Yet here we are with a failing system because of yet another botched launch.

Yeah, I'll believe this when I see it.

MoonKnight7 commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

This is likely, however I don't believe everything here. July seems like a weird time for a console launch. The curious part is the 20 million. That must be a cheap machine if you expect to sell 20 million of them. I say this part is nonsense.

Personally, given what Mr. McFarran said:
"DigiTimes appears to be under the impression that Nintendo has already announced the 2016 release date - which it hasn't, of course."

We need to take this strictly as a rumor, as there are blatant inaccuracies. That said, after the E3 terribleness, I've gone into the 2016 Holiday launch column for the NX, so I do find some of these statements believable, at least to some degree.

@TantXL

Wow really, no problems at all with the first one? My run-through was simply unplayable. I'd jump somewhere and the camera just moved like it had a mind of it's own. I gave the game the benefit of the doubt, but I fell off platforms too many times, and at one point I just said to myself, I've given this game more than enough chances. I really wanted to go further, as I loved the concept, but I just couldn't take the technical issues anymore.

I wanted to get back into it with Epic Mickey 2, but sadly, and your comment reassures this, the reviews said these issues got even worse. A complete shame really.

MoonKnight7 commented on Interview: Warren Spector on the State of Nint...:

I wanted to like Epic Mickey, as a big lover of animation, but I just couldn't. I certainly appreciated the concept and effort, which were really great, but man that in game camera was so bad. I died over, and over again because the camera just did whatever it wanted. I finally gave up, and sold it.

@Hordak

To this day, I still don't understand why Nintendo put it's handheld games on the Wii U, and not the 3DS. If you want to do both, fine, but without the 3DS's inclusion? I don't understand the point.

Most curiously, I'm looking at the DS games awkwardly placed on the gamepad.

MoonKnight7 commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

@Tops

I simply don't agree, because of what you said in your second statement:

"The problem then would be sustaining a decent stream of content for the U throughout 2016 and most of 2017. The only two games I'm looking forward to coming in 2016 are Zelda and SMT x FE."

SMTxFE and Zelda ARE the only two games coming in 2016, and as the article articulated, there's just nothing else coming other than little experiments. We'll probably see Project Guard, Project Robot and Project Treasure during this transition, but after that, there really isn't anything else other than some notable eshop titles. The Wii U, and furthermore, Nintendo cannot keep this system alive that long.

My thoughts are more in line with a Holiday 2016 - Early 2017 release. The earlier the better, because the Wii U has now become an awkward stop-gap.

MoonKnight7 commented on Splatoon Has Inked 1 Million In Sales Since It...:

It's too bad this game came out about a year too late. Maybe with MK8, Smash and Splatoon coming out closer together, it could have saved the Wii U.

Still though, it's a great game. I've come back for more on countless occasions.

MoonKnight7 commented on Review: Don't Starve: Giant Edition (Wii U eShop):

This game is fantastic. I love the Minecraft(ness). It's charming and addicting. I also like how even when you die, that's it, you're done. Just like the review says, it erases your save file so no one can cheat. It causes you to be very cautious, just like in real life! Ha!

MoonKnight7 commented on Hands On: Logging More Flight Time With Star F...:

@ThomasBW84

Do you think the reason for the shoddy visuals is because the Wii U has to render 2 outputs at the same time? Case n' point, I thought I remembered reading somewhere (maybe it was on NL) that MK8 intended to use the gamepad as another screen so the others could use the TV. However, they nixed it because the Wii U couldn't keep up with rendering two outputs at the same time.

I have to wonder if this is the reason why it had to go with "GameCube like" visuals.

Feel free too shoot my theory down, I'm just spit-balling. Maybe it's just cause Nintendo is in a pinch to get this thing done, with the Wii U nearing the end of it's life and all.
