MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Is "Exploring" The Idea Of Early Acce...:

@mjc0961 Well of course it should cost money because you're still buying a game. But if you buy early access you get all the updates and get the actual game for a lot less than the retail value. Should everyone avoid kickstarter games too because of that? They're obviously not getting anything when they fund the project yet they hope the developer will finish the game and that it will be good. So releasing a game for free and providing updates in content till the final release isn't good for the developers. There needs to be a happy medium between, and once again I state that early access isn't for every game. And if you think it's dumb then simply don't join in. Problem solved.

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Is "Exploring" The Idea Of Early Acce...:

A lot of people compare early access games to already completed games and give plenty of negative reviews on them. I've seen this already everywhere on Steam. The point of early access games is to give feedback and not say they are crappy. When you do that, then of course the developers are going to stop working on it. Reviews like "there are a lot of bugs that prevent me from playing" don't help, state what the bugs are and how they can fix them. The problem isn't how it's necessarily done, but the people who actually review them. Most of whom who probably think early access games are terrible.

I think it depends on the game. Spatoon worked fine and that was almost like an early access with the demos and adding more content later. But early access Zelda would probably take away a lot of the fun and exploration in a full game.

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Isn't Talking About NX Because It Doe...:

Yesssssssss I'm so excited for what the NX will be now! Take that all you no good downers who are saying the Wii U is dead! Also it's great hearing it's starting from 0 which means possibly stronger hardware, emulation, and many other possibilities! Countdown to next E3 in 3..2..1...

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

There were a lot of launch games for the Wii U that were just ports which didn't interest a lot of gamers. I on the other hand had lots of games to play at launch since I never was able to play any of these games on other systems or PC. Even today I still have loads of games to play for the Wii U so I'll definitely be enjoying it for years to come. I'm still playing some games for Wii that I never got a chance to play while it was in current gen state.

MrGuinea commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Tackles Metroid Prime: Federa...:

@Yorumi well over half of those things were out of their control but sure we can blame them I guess. According to you and I guess everyone else we should just go back to the nes because anything new they come up with you'll never like. So excuse me as I go enjoy some updates to smash bros and mariokart, some new IPs, and some interesting takes on old IPs.

MrGuinea commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Tackles Metroid Prime: Federa...:

I honestly think Federation Force will be a fun game to play. I like when they do mix it up a bit which is what Nintendo does. People are flipping out over this E3 because they didn't get what they want. Be patient and trust them is what Reggie is saying. I'm sure they're probably going to have Metroid be a launch title for the NX. Until then, enjoy this little metroid venture. If you don't want to enjoy it, then just shut up. Sure, it was definitely the most lackluster E3 I have seen over the past years I won't deny that at all. But picking apart all the negatives hides all the positives.

MrGuinea commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

They keep coming out with new games that use all these amiibo but nobody has any to use on them. They don't realize that they have to release amiibos starting from wave 1 before they keep making games that use them. When they say how awesome it is to use an amiibo in a game it's like a slap in the face to everyone. Releasing 5 more marth or 10 mario amiibo countrywide doesn't count as "restocking".

MrGuinea commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda...:

I agree this event was lackluster. But I'm hoping that next year will be better when they release everything. This whole transition between the Wii U and NX I think is throwing things off for them. On one hand they want to still make grade A games for the Wii U but still make sure a large line up is there for the NX especially if 3rd parties aren't there.

But people have to remember they do multiple directs a year. They probably will have another in a few months down the road that tells more about this Zelda. To them E3 is just a little larger of a direct now. There's obviously something else going on with that Zelda game to not show it now. So everyone keep your pants on and be satisfied with at least knowing the game is in production unlike a new Metroid, FZero, or Animal Crossing which probably isn't going to be for a long time.

MrGuinea commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

Honestly, I'm waiting until E3 next year where Nintendo somehow pulls out all the big guns and unveils everything they have been working on and everybody is just left in awe.

This E3 direct was just simple. A little TOO simple. Only one new large Wii U game released? A bunch of smaller scale games such as Metroid, Zelda, AC, and mario maker? I'm guessing they didn't really have anything else ready to show. They DID get negative feedback from showing StarFox last year when it wasn't ready yet, so why repeat that? The NX isn't near ready, the new club nintendo replacement is not ready, Zelda wii U isn't ready, and probably several others.

It does stink that the Wii U is coming to an end, but I'm ready to see where they go with this. I don't understand why people are so upset about them moving on to better and greater things. We first complain the wii U isn't enough, and now we complain when it's about to be taken away.

MrGuinea commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

And why is this worse for Nintendo owners? First people dislike the wii U, now when they say they are in progress of producing their next console WHICH WILL BE AT THE NORMAL CYCLE OF CONSOLES everyone says that news is terrible.

They don't need to rush this, they don't need to expedite it to "catch up" with Sony and MS, and they don't need to kill the wii U.

You people are being ridiculous.

MrGuinea commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

They said early 2016 they would release info on it meaning it probably won't be till holiday 2017 since they usually release them around that time. Or it'll be at next E3. People have to remember they released the wii U a year early before the other current gens, and 2017 will be it's 5 year anniversary which is a normal cycle for Nintendo consoles.

And especially if they are going to try to make this one better they're going to put in a few years of development. I was ready for dual screen gameplay but the world wasn't apparently.

P.S. I REALLY hope they do not name the next one "Wii NX" or something that has "Wii" in the name. It's time to let that be. That was one of the main confusions with consumers.

MrGuinea commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

The problem I had with it was that 75% of it was things we already knew about. There weren't any surprises and it was over before we knew it. They should focus on new things in these. The supposed to be "big" surprise was shown last year. I hope nintendo releases a new direct every few months. That would offset this being a kind of mellow direct.

MrGuinea commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Slashing Its Way to 3DS:

Eh if this would've been announced at e3 I wouldn't have cared. Nothing really new here and I plan on getting the wii u one still. Although now I will probably not visit this site till end of next week as I don't want something actually big to be found out early...

MrGuinea commented on Splatoon to Feature as Details on Competitors ...:

They really shouldn't have titled this "Nintendo World Championships". It's not similar at all to the 1990 one. They should have called this something different to represent it better. Eight people picked from only 8 locations in only the entire US, and then 8 people who didn't even have to qualify. I'll probably just check out the news article afterwards.

MrGuinea commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I've played thru starfox 64 and that was pretty good but it just wasn't my game style. And the gamecube starfox games were just not really good at all. If it brings something extremely new to the franchise then I'll take a look at it but other than that I'm probably going to overlook this one.

MrGuinea commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

@DarthNocturnal @GraveLordXD Ok maybe gimicky wasn't the right word...I just meant that I was much more immersed in it than in any other metroid game. Maybe it wasn't that but there was something about it that did that...

@NowhereMan11 I guess I'm the odd one out then. I'm not sure what parts of the story were bad or what made it bad, but I didn't have any problems with the game that other people claim to have struggled with.

MrGuinea commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I'd prefer Other M style. I'm not really into the whole 2D metroid (although I have played through them). But Other M is probably my favorite in the whole franchise. It was told as if from a cinema perspective and definitely had me wanting to play more and more to let the story unfold. It had a strong story focus and less on gimicky gameplay elements. It was unique. HD Prime would be nice too, but I like when they put a new spin on an old franchise. Just as long as it's a new series not a continuation of Prime itself, because that was a trilogy.

MrGuinea commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I was surprised I actually found some wave 4 amiibo. But after too many frustrating tries on getting common amiibos, I've resorted to just getting what I can easily obtain. It stinks that you can't get any features out of them because they are so rare. If they are making a devoted amiibo game they need to restock all of them otherwise it won't sell at all.

MrGuinea commented on Talking Point: Prepare Yourselves - E3 Silly S...:

Last year was quite the spectacle as there were a lot of surprises in the direct I was not expecting at all. So far it seems like there won't be as many this year as a lot of things are already speculated so they won't be a surprise. I just hope my body is ready if they do throw a lot at us this year! All aboard!!!!!!!

MrGuinea commented on Rumour: GameStop No Longer Taking amiibo Preor...:

Glad to see some change going on with this. It may not be the best solution, but it's a step in the right direction. This will start to stop scalpers from preordering one, then putting the preorder for their preorder on amazon or ebay.

Also I missed the preorder window of wave 4. I talked to an associate the week prior to the release and she said they had already filled in all preorders for wave 4 during the hour they had it open at the store. I hadn't heard anything about this preorder window because they didn't announce it. Glad to hear I can just wait on the release date if I really wanted to get one rather than going in every few days to ask when the window will be.

While I do think it would be cool to allow voice chat among friends with an on/off switch along with other things to make it family safe, I respect the developers decision on it. Obviously they have their reasons as to why they didn't, but I'm not going to say I know more than them and tell them they made their game wrong. It was their game and their decision.

MrGuinea commented on Amazon Confirms US amiibo Pre-Order Times for ...:

I'm done with amiibo. This was the final straw. Until they make them readily available I can't do it.

While refreshing for lucina I never saw her appear but I did see one of the scalpers price increase by $10 and somehow go from 3 in stock to in stock with an estimated ship date later in the week (because they have to get it shipped to them first). Considering this happened at exactly the time lucina was reported to be released the scalpers got most of them. If this keeps up nintendo will lose a lot of fans. Stores around me are already not getting in the new waves of amiibo and if online is dominated by scalpers there's no way to get one. I've also tried to order international but nobody ships here. I don't know how people say they are.
So I'm just done.

MrGuinea commented on ​Lego Jurassic World Pre-Order Freebies Comi...:

@Quorthon
You keep saying less money, less money, less money. But what I'm talking about is less PROFIT. Did you take economics? Because profits mean that you MADE money not lost it. So no I wouldn't take the job at McDonalds because I would be losing money. But what I would do is stay at my same job and hire someone to cook my food at McDonalds. Sure, hiring the new guy to cook my food will cost some money but that will come out of the profits I'm making elsewhere. I just want to get my food out to the public so they can try it even if I break even with the McDonald's guy.

The point here is that if they weren't making profits on a game they would cut the game completely. But if they are still making the same game on other platforms but not one then they are simply pointing out the fact that their profit wouldn't be as high if they put it out to all systems.

You were incorrect about the argument I was making, and tried making it into an argument you could prove wrong.

MrGuinea commented on ​Lego Jurassic World Pre-Order Freebies Comi...:

@Quorthon

Still much of the blame should be on 3rd parties. Nintendo doesn't have to be the same cookie cutter console as the others. If every piece of technology ran on the same thing what would be the point? These large 3rd party companies only want to maximize profits. That's it. Every "evidence" that you blamed Nintendo for can all be led back to the 3rd party wanting more profit. I've seen indie devs that port games over just fine, with sometimes better features due to Nintendo's unique hardware. Sure it costs money and time, but if you're a game developer don't you want people to play your game? All they have to do is put in the work. Sometimes everything doesn't come handed to you on a silver platter and you have to actually work at it. I think that's what these companies have gotten comfy to and now they don't want to leave.

Devs complain their games don't sell on Wii U.
Devs take away incentives to buy their own games on said platform.
Devs offer better incentives to buy their game on other platforms.
Devs complain after release their game didn't sell as well on said platform.
Devs stop making games for said platform blaming the platform itself.

3rd party companies need to realize their digging their own grave and not the other way around. Their digging their own game's grave then handing the shovel to Nintendo and running away blaming them for it.

It's like asking someone if they want pizza from pizzeria 1 or if they want the same pizza from pizzeria B only pizzeria B is going to give you free breadsticks with it.

Or it's like a company not producing pencils for a new notepad that came out because they're waiting for more people to buy the notepad before they do, even though the notepad needs the pencil for it to be useful.

MrGuinea commented on Amazon Confirms US amiibo Pre-Order Times for ...:

It's nice they announce this because Gamestop in the US did this but never really told anyone about the times unless asked about them.

I just don't get why they don't open up preorders like a month in advance for a few hours and anyone in that time will get one, even if some have to wait. I'd be fine with waiting a month or two as long as I knew I would be getting one. This would give them exactly their demand amount and they wouldn't be feeding scalpers because anyone who would want one would get one eventually.

MrGuinea commented on Capcom Is Bringing The Nintendo Exclusive Resi...:

I think it's simply they don't want to put in the extra effort. Porting from xbox to ps and vice versa probably isn't too bad considering they're running similar hardware and control schemes. But when you throw in a tad slower hardware and the gamepad, you almost have to redesign the layout of the game. So if you can hit 2/3 consoles with minimum changes/expenditures they're going to do that especially for a remake.

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Announces Best Buy Locations and Deta...:

Really disappointed as well. I think nintendo failed to capitalize on this opportunity. I thought it would be a small new special game just like in 1990 that they would have exclusively at these events or even a special download available only at those nintendo zones. It'll be unfair for those who don't have the game/system. It'll be more like the "I-lived-close-enough-to-one-of-the-best-buy-locations-and-already-had-nes-remix-2" championships.

Oh well. Hopefully their presentation won't be as disappointing as this news.
Maybe I'll be there for the 2040 "world" championships.

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Unable To Promise When It Can Remedy ...:

I stopped buying amiibo since February. I was able to get a few exclusives, but if what are supposed to be normal release amiibos become rarer than the exclusives something is wrong. I have yet to believe anything above wave 3 has actually been released since they are seen everywhere as unavailable.

I'll either buy them when they become available or 20 years from now when they don't matter. But right now, my sights have become set on LEGO dimensions, something that will be more worthwhile to collect and use.

As long as Nintendo makes a unified system where your purchased games and progress can be easily moved from system to system I will be happy. Until then, they are still missing something big that all other platforms have.
