@rjejr

"Since these seem rather static, and the stands are BORE-ing..."

Do you mean the bases they are on? Cause I can understand that to a degree given that they're black, though the SSB gold emblem is a nice touch. But static? I dunno about that. You're right with some of them, ie Kirby, Pikachu and the Animal Crossing Villager, but plenty of the others have complex movements going on, like DK for example.

"Though at this point Nintendo just needs to produce a Minecraft like sandbox game if only to give the amiibo a place to call home."

Amen to that. Personally, I think that's the ultimate end game with amiibo. All their other game support is just testing the waters.

If I remember correctly, there was an article on NL about the creator briefly mentioning a 3DS version could be made based on a previous iOS build. It's probably more likely that the 3DS would get it before the Wii U (though it probably would be a watered down version unfortunately). Honestly though, I don't know what they're waiting for. It's sold so well, why not release it for everything and fill out the ranks. Business wise, it really isn't that much of a risk anymore since it's been so successful elsewhere, plus, I could really see the gamepad working well with it.

I'd imagine that this game was a quick turn, so I'm going to guess it falls into the short but sweet catagory. I'm perfectly fine with that. Plus, I believe this game is going to experiment with DLC just like Pikmin 3 did.

@Cosats

Sure you could do that. On the 3DS you can also move almost anything as well, yet it has the ability to add folders. I would like the option to stay a little more organized. Then I can turn on the Wii U and everything is on the first page just within folders, and you can do what works for you by keeping everything on set pages. See everyone wins. :)

@DefHalan (@midnafanboy)

As it stands now, it is a finished game, even if it is a short one. This suggests that Nintendo really should have stepped in and said, "Hey before you release this, you should work on some things..." In terms of the general public, the developer has now damaged their reputation, and no amount of DLC can fix that.

You've touched on a interesting issue, so thank you for the read. I think, for the most part, people know what they're in for if they're getting a game for $1-$2. Does that mean you should be less critical on the site? Absolutely not. There's nothing wrong with constructive criticism. If the game isn't good, it isn't good. I'd be fine if they had more quality control in that we never get a game like "The Letter" again. NL said it perfectly saying it never should have made it on the eshop to begin with. It's become a joke, where people are asking, "How did this happen??"

I do like the idea of a section of the eshop being "New Talent." First and foremost, it's polite, and says to the customer that you should do you homework before buying this game.

MoonKnight7 commented on Video: Behold The Insane Destructive Power Of ...:

I'm not quite as impressed with this one. Perhaps they just need more time to refine it, but the wreaking ball itself is very static when Link is running around with it. I would have liked a simple animation to show it sway a little when Link is running from point A to point B. With the lack of animation, it just kind of looks like he's holding a club rather than a wreaking ball.

@maceng

Thank you for being polite. It just makes things easier to discuss.

Despite what they need to happen, the fact of the matter is that it isn't easy to hit the 1 million (worldwide) mark during the non-holiday season. Half a million, sure I can see it with major releases, but one million? No, I don't see it. The big push comes during the holidays, that's where the millions come into play. You can break it down and say 1 million x 36 months = 36 million, but it isn't fully accurate as that bulk will come from holiday sales (note, I'm taking into account that you don't agree with my statement above, but I will say I probably should have said "millions" instead of "crack one million." I'll fix that and give you credit.). To which, at this time, it is difficult to guess what the figures will look like. This will be a more interesting discussion after December of 2014.

However, I do agree with your second bit, as the Wii U will be lucky to make a third of what the Wii did.

@jrob23

"I said they needed a 1 million month not one million a month. Try to keep up. Let me dumb it down for you..."

I know what you said, as I understand what words mean when strung together in a sentence. There's no need to be rude. Stop spouting the obvious, that it needs to sell better, everyone knows that.

What I find baffling is that you think it's reasonable for any console to hit the one million mark with any major release in the U.S. Then level off to 300K, something the PS4 can't do, even with it's current momentum. The only thing I can possibly think of is that you're accounting for worldwide console sales, rather than what pertains to the article which is just U.S. figures. The only time it's reasonable to think a console can crack one million (worldwide) is during the holidays with major releases. So as I said before, in terms of it being June, and in the U.S., your basis of one million, then 300K is ridiculous.

EDIT:

As pointed out by @maceng, it should be noted that I should have said, "The only time it's reasonable to think a console can crack into the millions (worldwide) is during the holidays with major releases." To which, said person is correct. What I said makes it sound as if I'm saying one million alone.

"They need a 1 million month..."

That's a ridiculous number you are asking for, with any console really. Zelda won't be the last game either. They may be knee deep in development for their next console, but there's no way 2015 is going to be the Wii U's last year. Or 2016 for that matter.

@WillMelnyk

Yeah I kind of thought that's how it would be. I'm definitely going to wait it out for a while. I just got a PS3 not too long ago, so I'm not going to shell out $400 on something that isn't backwards compatible. I have a backlog now anyway given that there is so much to play on PS3. Plus, we're still at a point where they're making software for both PS3 and PS4 anyway.

Thanks for the advice.

MoonKnight7 commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

"...House cites data which suggests that 40 percent of PS4 owners didn't have a PlayStation Plus account previously, which could mean they were upgrading from the Wii."

"Could" is the key word here. Given how the PS4 has blown past Xbone (almost double is a good estimate), I'd argue more followers of the 360 jumped to PS4. Sony's claim needs to be taken with a large grain of salt, as there really isn't a lot of facts to go on so early in the life-cycle. They're just gloating for the sake of gloating.

Hopefully since the Wii U library is a bit slim, it tempts them to release it in all territories.

@Kolzig

That's a pretty good idea actually. Kind of like what they'll do for Bayonetta 2 giving us the first game with it. I'd be ok even if it wouldn't have gamepad support, just as long as you could play it with the Wii remotes.

@rjejr

A few months ago I remember Microsoft saying they shipped 5 million units, but that doesn't tell us how many were sold. They've been pretty quiet on the matter since then so you know the numbers aren't overly impressive. At the moment, the only foothold it has is in the U.S. PS4 is crushing them in Europe, and I don't even know why they'll bother releasing in Japan at the end of the year. Especially since both the Wii U and PS4 are struggling there.

@rjejr

Mine is a 320 GB that I bought second hand, but it works like a charm. If I remember correctly, it was the second model that Sony released during the PS3 lifespan. I'm with you on the 12 GB though, it just wasn't enough space for the asking price of $200. Especially since we live in a world of constant updates and dlc.

@unrandomsam (@Geonjaha)

Let's take a step back for a second, and I'm going to reiterate. Nearly anything could be labeled an addiction. It is just a matter of opinion whether or not said addiction is good for you. However, there are obvious "bad and good addictions" of course, given overwhelming amounts of studies. So in that regard, has been plenty studies that state video game are indeed, at least to some degree, good. I discount this opinion mainly due to the fact that it is basing it on drugs for the attention, as you have to have a lot more variables to make such an accusation. I could say that gambling is as additive as heroin, throw four random facts up, and it has just as much weight as their statement, which essentially, at it's core, tells you nothing.

If the title of the article would be "video games are addictive," there would be no interest, but if the title is "video games are as addictive as heroin," then it gets people's attention. I think it's important to see through these kinds of articles as they are just intended to get clicks and nothing more.

"I think it probably does have some similarities. (Great whilst it lasts but its not enough and then always want more)."

You could say that about almost anything though. Doing too much of anything could be labeled as an addiction. The Sun is just making connections for the sake of making connections.
