Morph commented on Nintendo's UK Store Gives Free eShop Copy of A...:

So nintendo give a free download out and a free gift because they were a tad late in despatching the game, and Game gave out £10 gift cards after they charged customers hundreds of pounds on their cards and greatly inconvenienced them, yeah I know who i'd rather deal with in future (clue: it's not game)



Morph commented on Super Mario Maker Back on Top in Japan as 3DS ...:

I think the hardware trends in Japan will ultimately dictate what Nintendo does next in the hardware market. Portable consoles are by far and away the biggest sellers over there 48k for handhelds vs 25k for home consoles.

I don't expect Nintendo to release a traditional home console again, the trend shows consumers moving away from that in their home region and I don't expect that to change any time soon.

The issue for nintendo is that the west does still to a large extent prefer a home console, so what do the do. Do they go with a handheld/console regardless or go with some sort of hybrid as has been rumoured. Or do they go with both a handheld and home console but build them with exactly the same specifications and release the exact same games on both? I think the answer is likely to be the latter. The question is can they pack the power of a home console into a handheld, or do they make the games scalable so they can work on both.



Morph commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

He starts off talking sense and finishes off talking rubbish. I would wager the majority of ppl who want to play COD or GTA already do, the user base would not simply double if the 'console' was removed, they would still need to pay for whatever device would be necessary to play the game, be it a STB or whatever.

Now if he'd used Mario or Smash or Mario Kart as an example I could go along with that. Nintendo would be the biggest winner in such a situation, they make plenty of games console gamers would likely play but won't because they wont buy a nintendo console.

As with everything he says, there's probably an element of truth in there somewhere surrounded by all the nonsense



Morph commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

Don't agree with the article at all Star Fox moving to 2016 will have very little impact on the Wii U's sales. Idon't believe Starfox has ever been a system seller it was unlikely to start being on this christmas. It's sad to see it slip but it's not as dramatic as all that.



Morph commented on Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero Has Been Delayed, "I A...:

Shame, but I think xenoblade is enough to keep me going, plus splatoon and mario maker still on the go.

And we've still got Rodea and Fatal Frame to come, I'm happy they are taking the time to improve it.



Morph commented on Feature: The Short But Sweet Games Journalism ...:

Nice article, In a wierd way I miss the days when all your gaming info came from a magazine once a month, everything just seems a little too easy now. I think that changed somewhere around the end of the Sega Saturn era for me, good times.



Morph commented on Chieftain Bob Meets Gunman Clive, You Won't Be...:

What's all the fuss about?

The cynic in me does see this as a bit of a stunt for some free publicity, but the game is still a good so it shouldn't really affect anyones enjoyment of it. I own them both on 3ds and purchased the wii u version yesterday and it's just as good if not better. It would be quite a close minded decision to allow this to stop you buying the game



Morph commented on Review: Sin and Punishment (Wii U eShop / N64):

It's never a 7/10 game, assuming there are no problems with the actual wii u port and there don't seem to be, then it's a 9/10 the same as it was the last time it was reviewed, and the same as most reviews you will ever read for the game



Morph commented on Poll: The Battle of the Nindies and Questions ...:

I dont really get the concerns over the shovel knight amiibo, the game was released 'in full' long before the amiibo was ever revealed. I think as long as the content is additional to the game then whats rhe problem



Morph commented on Review: 3D Gunstar Heroes (3DS eShop):

I don't think I've ever argued the point over a review score before, but I think this should be a 10. I don't know of a better game in this genre and with the added 3D, that just makes it even better



Morph commented on Nintendo Removes Ironfall Invasion From 3DS eS...:

Lets be honest, I imagine most of the money the Ironfall devs would have made has been made by now. Also if anything this guy has probably caused Ironfall ro be downloaded more times over the past few weeks than it has since launch. I bet they've actually made more money from this hack in the last few weeks than they will lose by the game being pulled.



Morph commented on Nintendo Not Looking To Churn Out Yearly Seque...:

I like this approach personally. We don't need gamea like mario kart, smash bros and now splatoon to have yearly releases. Keeping them fresh with dlc is a great idea sometimes free sometimes paid for.

I thought they did a really good job with mario kart 8 and think it's a perfect example of how this approach can work. Splatoon has been really good so far too. Smash Bros less so, I think more of the content should be free, i'd be happy to pay for new game modes but not really fighters (although I did buy Ryu)
