Sure, there are some great games on the way. But PR-wise, Nintendo failed again... miserably.

It's like they still don't realise what E3 is really about. You need to wow the crowd. The problem is... Nintendo doesn't think they have to. Or even worse, they think they have wow'ed the crowd.

The Wii U as it stands now has a great line-up (mostly consisting of first-party games, but still). I'm not a single moment bored with it. The point is that Nintendo had a great momentum. All they had to do at E3 was prolong that momentum, but they didn't. They shattered it.

And they want to release this in December 2015, right? I bet 10 euros they will broadcast an apology / postpone video in the next 3 - 4 months...

They should've let Factor 5 (Rogue Squadron developer) veterans work on the new Star Fox. Imagine epic battles / dog fights with an even grander scale than the Battle of Endor in Rogue Squadron II.

So far this E3 has been a complete disaster for Nintendo.



Nassov commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:

Sure this game can turn out to be fun, perhaps even great. But the thing we got to see in that trailer... What the bloody hell was that? There were so many things going on, so many conflicting colours. Such a mess. They rammed into the presentation like it was a last-minute hassle. If only they'd worked longer/better on their presentation, perhaps people would've been more enthusiastic.



Nassov commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

Lack of surprises (even considering the leaks), not a single WOW-moment. Showing games we've been shown (more thorougly) in past Nintendo Directs. Starfox not really looking that great... This was pretty darn disappointing...



Nassov commented on Lucky New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Gamers Jump ...:

I received the email and I intend to buy the Ambassador New 3DS it for the purpose of selling it (starting bid: the retail price. It would be silly of me to sell it for less, simple economics. Besides, I'm not a charity).

I consider myself a huge fan of Nintendo. Heck, I was born with a NES-controller in my hands (the doctors are still baffled). I have had a total of 20000 stars on Club Nintendo to prove how loyal I am and I always fill in their surveys (and I believe that's how Nintendo measured the loyalty among the winners) plus I visit this site, duh. I just don't care so much for limited editions and I want a New Nintendo 3DS XL, rather than this one.
Am I unthankful? Perhaps, but I consider it to be a shame to let this offer go. As I don't want the actual offer I will be selling it. If someone is willing to pay me more than it cost me, that's his/her choice.

Kinda harsh for not calling me a big o' fan enough. I'm a big fan, but I don't idolize every single product Nintendo makes... Especially when it's just a regular New Nintendo 3DS with a special casing... Geesh...

Besides it's not like I'm preventing other people from getting the item by buying all the available stock (I saw some comparisons made to 'The Interview' cinema tickets and the Amiibo figurines). Heck, I'm making sure someone who wants it, actually gets is, rather than no one getting it at all (Same point @hypercoyote makes. Praise to him)




Nassov commented on Nintendo Europe Shipping Ambassador Edition Ne...:

I got the email as well. Although I can't login to the Ambassador-site. Perhaps it's overloaded with visitors now.
It has nothing to do with the 3DS Ambassador-program prior to this one. It has to do with your loyalty to Nintendo (amount of registered games / Club Nintendo Stars), at least, that's what I assume.

I live in The Netherlands by the way...



Nassov commented on Nintendo Download: 24th October (Europe):

Any idea what the file size (in particular the amount of 'blocks') will be for Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies? 'Cause I lost a lot of memory to Pokémon X
