To everyone who didn't like the English acting/accents in Xenoblade on Wii,
I used to live on a planetoid made from the bodies of two great titans locked in eternal battle and the inhabitants spoke exactly like they do in Xenoblade so I think Monolith did a fantastic job..

I thought the English cast of Xenoblade was some of the better voice acting out there but I'm worried the authentic English accents will be replaced with that abomination of a cockney accent from Bayonetta 2. The best I've heard recently was Lego City.

It's Reyn time!

If gamepad as classic controller support is being included in certain games then why can't they do this for N64 games?

Also, there's a GameCube controller adapter which currently supports 1 game. Why can't they put GC games out there?

I don't want them to abandon Wii U before they've made some games that make sense such as 1080 Snowboarding with the Fit Board, Battalion Wars 3 (with gamepad squad commands) and Eternal Darkness 2 (with gamepad spell casting and sanity effects)!!!

With the Wii and DS, they said there would be interesting cross compatibility. Other than unlocking exclusive content, there wasn't really any. With the Wii U and 3DS, they said there would be interesting cross compatibility. There have been a few games that interact well if you own both. With its current usage, the gamepad should have never been made and the 3DS should have been designed to handle their asymmetric play ideas.

I hope their next duo are a console with a RAM, CPU and GPU that are as good as high end PC hardware is now and a Gameboy 2 which looks a bit like a Wii U gamepad but has an optional 4G smartphone model. Make the console capable of having 4-8 handhelds connect at once without lag. I hope they keep the Wii Remote alive but actually make some decent games rather than half efforts like Wii Sports Club and Nintendoland.

Old school difficulty was all about making a 20 minute game last longer. In the arcades, the aim of the difficulty was to force you into spending all of your money. There's so many cheaap shots in old Capcom arcade games that are clearly thrown in as guaranteed player-deaths.

I can't believe they don't fully expect these appalling sales figures. I've never seen more than one advert for any given Wii U game and I've never seen one at a time that potential buyers would be watching TV. The only console/games I've ever seen advertised heavily by Nintendo was the Wii.

Go Mario Kart! I knew you were a better seller than Smash. Now let Sakurai make the next MK so we get the most comprehensive MK ever. 32 tracks for £50 is a little bit steep! I think The 30 Million people who bought MKW would have earned MK8 better marketing and development budgets.

Someone needs to make an infographic of how to market a console before, during and immediately after launch. This is nice and everything but all Nintendo can do to make big sales over Xmas is lots of TV and Newspaper adverts aimed at parents and gamers. If they carried on the Wii adverts but just changed the games being played and the logo, they'd sell more Wii Us than they will this Xmas.

Loads of people in the UK would buy a Redknapp family endorsed MK8 box for £200. I just don't get why they've never properly advertised it.

There's nothing wrong with putting safety first but this reminds me of being told that looking at screens all day would damage my eyesight. I'm 32 and still haven't stopped spending too much time in front of screens and my eyesight is absolutely fine.

Nintenjoe64 commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

"and while his original 3D outings, Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2, were well-designed fan favourites"

I thought the adventure games were pretty bad as a teenager and I don't remember many fans amongst my fellow Dreamcast owners. I sometimes think it's only because Sega have plumbed new depths almost annually with worse, slightly broken games that the adventure games are remembered so fondly. Hopefully the abysmal sales of this game will deter Sega from all this Sonic abuse and make them consider revisiting IP that might actually translate well into a modern game.

I still have no idea what my preferred set-up is for MK8. I think I settled on a small selection of vehicles on MKW pretty quickly but MK8 seems to have many more subtle and incremental differences. I still haven't even scratched the surface with the game. It's a good thing that Nintendo give us 5 years to learn everything.

Nintenjoe64 commented on Genyo Takeda Discusses Nintendo's Hardware Future:

TV ads might not be as effective as they used to be but it's no coincidence that the top selling console of 2014 is the one which had blanket TV advertising on the popular channels. It's also no coincidence that Nintendo's best ever generation for hardware sales was their most heavily advertised on TV. The weird thing is that the Wii campaign with famous families playing Wii games would have been perfect for showing off Nintendoland back in 2012.
