@unrandomsam I've been playing bravely default for 40 hours now and i have yet to use the bravely second feature. It's so marginal i even forget it's there, although i guess i could have used it several times since i leave the 3ds on sleep mode to rebuild Norende... but i definitely don't see the point of scaring people out of buying the game because it has a pay to win feature...

Nico85 commented on Video: This Bravely Default Story Trailer Goes...:

Bravely Default is a very good game, the art is beautiful and the job system is deep and entertaining, the story could be better in some ways but it's no where near as bad as its detractors want to make you think. I have no idea why some people here are saying the music is bad because it's actually really good, although it's definitely a matter of taste . My advice would be to buy this game because it has many excellent aspects and it'll surely entertain you for many hours. Is it the best JRPG you'll ever play? Probably not , but at the moment it is the strongest jrpg on 3DS imo.

@Nintenjoe64 I have never read a single positive comment made by Peach64, I wouldn't waste my time with him/her. Miiverse is fun and has tons of potential, yes there are many people who say how much they like the game they are playing but if they didn't enjoy playing it would they even be on miiverse in the first place?

@jayclayx I find it really hard to believe that amazon would boycott such a good selling product as the 3ds, and even if they did they certainly wouldn't be promoting Apple products, they would try to push their own tablet... And besides, amazon.com announced SM3dW was n1 on their best sellers chart just a few weeks ago.

@Nintenjoe64 I was about to say the same thing about MAB's comment... granted i'm not the best video gamer but some levels are rally hard, and where are all these green mushrooms he keeps talking about?? I have actually never payed so much attention to collecting coins so that i can have 1 more life every now and then, cause man I do need them!!!

@Kirk I'm sorry but i find it even harder to take you seriously after you said what you said knowing that you are 37 years old and have accomplished so much. It's hard to argue against such delusions of grandeur ( i'm talking about your 99.9% statement)

@Kirk I read some of your posts, and i could have even given you the benefit of the doubt until your last post... From the height of what do you think that
"My wants are, for the MOST part, actually best for Everyone.
Of that I am 1000% sure."
It really makes you sound childish. And no, admitting that you are presumptuous isn't enough to justify you saying something like that.
Where does your deep knowledge of the industry come from? Because all you've quoted are articles from other sites and to me that isn't enough.

Nintendo may be doomed or may be able to turn things around like they did multiple times, all i know is that we are talking about video games and games by definition should be fun. This is the reason why i buy nintendo games, this is the reason why i'm not ashamed to say that i played animal crossing almost as much as I used to play WoW. I don't understand why all these nobodies ( former employees or even worse former employees of bankrupt companies) want nintendo to fail so badly, because honestly I think it would be a loss for the entire gaming world (not that i think it will happen anytime soon) should any of the prophecies come true. All the fuss about Knack selling more of Mario, the PS4 came out with a handful of games, all the people who pre ordered the ps4 were bound to to buy one of these 5-6 games, big whoop.
There was an article that stated that Nintendo is a profitable company within it's 10% share of the video game industry, did it ever occur to all of you self proclaimed businessmen that maybe and I'm saying MAYBE in a period of financial crisis like the one we are facing now being a company that is profitable and that can pay dividends to its stockholders might be an achievement to not underestimate? There are people who say that microsoft is looking to sell its game division, other that say that sony is in deep finical trouble , I don't waste my time trying to wish them ill luck because even tho they don't produce my console of choice I always welcome competition. Nintendo is going to bounce back, they have the know how, they have the money , they have the support and most importantly they have faced difficult times in the past.

@Peach64 @Jese_1 for Jesse : I agree, i buy nintendo games because they are my style, if the Wii U were to be discontinued (which i don't think is going to happen) i wouldn't buy a ps4 or an xbox one to replace it .

For Peach64: there are very few certainties in life, but you consistently showing up to unload your negativity is definitely one of them.

Nico85 commented on Review: Bravely Default (3DS):

@Galenmereth i don't think the brave/default system was meant to radically change the whole genre of turn based battles, from what i've played it does add an interesting element. What I did like is the adjustable encounter rate. But i guess that if you're not into turn based battles, this game won't be for you...

Nico85 commented on Review: Bravely Default (3DS):

@unrandomsam the street pass function is still there, you have a town to rebuild , every shop you rebuild and then upgrade gives you more items/equipment to buy. Each shop takes X amount of hours, the more people you street pass the more villagers you'll have in your town = shops get completed faster.
The original Japanese version did not have micro transactions, this however is based on the "for the sequel" version, where the developers tried to implement new features according to what the fans had suggested. I believe the SP drink system was included in the game as a way to "help" those players who found the game to be too challenging to finish it.

"Yet we still worry about Nintendo, and that the sales of its hardware aren't going to be leading the pack. We shouldn't worry about the competitive picture, because Nintendo doesn't. The company is rightly concerned with making a profit, and doing that by making good games. Nintendo is back to profitability, and while it may not be the immense profitability of the Wii in its heyday, that's still a good thing. Will the Wii U become a solid seller? Maybe, maybe not... but Nintendo has had consoles before that never sold particularly well (cough GameCube cough). If the Wii U doesn't generate the sales Nintendo expects in a couple of years, the company will create some new hardware to replace it."

and...

"When Nintendo stops making games that are fun, that's the time to get worried about the company. That time is not now, nor is it any time soon"

I didn't know that there were so many analysts and marketing gurus that follow nintendo life! It sure is surprising to find out how much you people know about nintendo's current financial situation and how much "trouble" nintendo is in at any given time ( past presents and FUTURE!!!). If I were a sarcastic person i'd tell Peach64 Doma and FutureAlphaMale to fly to Nintendo's HQ and tell Iwata what grave danger his company is in. Because apparently you guys know , and Nintendo doesn't have a clue! But i'm not a sarcastic person so i won't although i must say that last time I checked nintendo games are selling quite well, and apparently unlike other companies Nintendo doesn't sell at a loss. I think the wii u is a very good console and i can't wait to buy super mario 3d world, if it's even just 1/10 as fun as critics and other people say i'm sure I'll have a blast, but then again, I enjoy playing games, not financial guru...

Nico85 commented on Bravely Default: Flying Fairy Coming To Europe...:

@ChessboardMan both are getting the enhanced version, form what i understand the game was very successful in japan so they are already working on the sequel (hence the "for the sequel"). After the game came out they asked their player base to tell them what improvements they would have liked in the sequel and came up with a list of 20 thing, most of which ( ui update etc) are being added to this enhanced version. But story wise it's exactly the same game.

Nico85 commented on Doublade Revealed for Pokémon X & Y, an Evolu...:

Magnemite --> Magneton
Diglett---> Dugtrio,
Doduo --> Dodiro,
Vanillite ---> Vanillish---> Vanilluxe

These are only some of the pokemon that have an evolution similar to Honedge (adding one head or having 2 of them come together) and most of them are 1st gen, so i suggest those of you who are already thinking of not buying the game because of this specific pokemon's evolution to do a little bit of research and get off your high horses.... This game looks like it's going to be awesome and if you decide not to buy it because you dislike one pokemon the joke'll be on you...

Nico85 commented on Without iOS Support Nintendo "Doesn’t Reach ...:

@Mecha_Boo I agree with you, buying an expensive piece of technology such as an ipad for a child to play games on is beyond spoiled it's borderline immoral... And besides it's not even fun, i think it would be 1000 times better for any child to enjoy the depth and craftsmanship behind a nintendo game than it would to play any ios game
