Nintenjoe64 commented on Rumour: Nintendo Has Plans to Localise Mother ...:

Why are people surprised or denying that Nintendo would release a localised port of the 3rd game in a series that has seen its predecessors recently released?

I haven't played beginnings yet. I want a proper modern Earthbound like we were promised in the mid 90s



Nintenjoe64 commented on Preview: Looking for the Light in The Legend o...:

This should be £20. Wind Waker took 6 months to port and I'd bet there are plenty of Nintendo's budget games that took longer to develop than this.

As @rjejr said, Nintendo showed us what an HD Zelda could look like in 2011 and it looked better than anything they shown since. Remake LttP with the tech demo graphics and then I'll buy optional motion plus controls would be welcome!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... GoldenEye 007:

For me, it was one of the best ever recreations of a film in games. So many scenes looked like the film compared to what we were used to which was usually bland platformers using a cartoony likeness of the main character.

I got this free with MK8 but it got forgotten amongst some better games but I do think it's good. It's just not as much fun as Bayonetta 2 or Mario Kart 8. I'd rank it above Transfomers Devastation, about level with MadWorld on my Platinum games scale. It's amongst the best production values on Wii U.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Analysis: Assessing Why NX Needs to Take Over ...:

Those Wii U numbers are terrible but at least they get close to 100% of the software sales!

I have no faith in NX to be a big seller but I am looking forward to MK9!!

Without GTAVI, FIFA17 and CoD35 the NX will fail harder than Wii U.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Can Exploit Its Rich H...:

If they had made some sensible remasters it would have been good for Wii U. I hope they bulk up the NX's first years with games like that but I don't have much faith in Nintendo to pick the same games I would go for. Pretty much every GC and N64 first party game would have been better than stuff like Game and Wario , Wii Party U etc.

Hopefully they'll go a step further with NX and do a few full HD 3D remakes of 2D games that would translate well into 3D like A Link to the Past!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Xenoblade Director on What's Next for the Seri...:

I've said it before and I will say it again; get Monolith to fill the Hyrule in the new Zelda. If they've got a huge open world, it has to be filled and the Zelda team haven't made a really densely populated world with lots to do since Majora's Mask so they probably need help.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Guide: Getting Started With Xenoblade Chronicl...:

What a traumatic day:
1. Had to work when game was being delivered
2. Was told by housemate that game had not arrived (they even checked outside)
3. Sent a snotty email to GAME
4. Came home to find game on doorstep
5. Realised Wii U is at friend's house
6. Sent apology to GAME

I reckon I will be started by 10pm. This guide nearly blew my head up so not sure how my fragile mind will take the game!



Nintenjoe64 commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

A lot of you are calling EA liars for thinking the market for EA is too small on Wii U while also claiming that you don't want EA's games. People not wanting EA's games proves EA's point.

I dislike the majority of what EA is about but their games aren't terrible, they did support the Wii and their games will determine the success of NX. Most people don't want to buy a console without any chance of a football game being released for it.

I don't care if the console I own is popular but unpopular consoles get bad support from both 1st and 3rd parties. My hope for NX is that Nintendo have realised people want real games and not mini game collections.



Nintenjoe64 commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

EA made one of my most played Wii U games; FIFA 13. It's a decent port with features but buggier than any other game I own.

Mass Effect 3 is an excellent port (one of the best gamepad games) but it almost seems like an insult when a cheaper trilogy was released on older systems.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Site News: A Brief Update on Our Mario Tennis:...:

As soon as I found out this didn't have motion plus controls it was dead to me. I hope Nintendo talk to EA and get 'decent' sports games for NX. Grand Slam Tennis is still the best Wiimote tennis game. Tiger is still the best Wiimote golf game



Nintenjoe64 commented on Timing Of NX Launch Could Help Nintendo Grab S...:

@Dakt I agree with your points but I think ac3 had DLC from start. It also didn't help when reviews complained about empty servers before launch.

@Xenocity I'm sure EA just want to sell games on whatever console. One of the worst things that could happen to EA's bottom line is having a software company with as much money as them competing with them on every platform instead of just one.

I also think a mature / dark shooter would fail to sell a Nintendo console unless Nintendo made and marketed it properly.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Timing Of NX Launch Could Help Nintendo Grab S...:

I don't think Nintendo need 3rd party and good timing if they have perfect marketing and launch games that blow people's minds.... Probably best to try all 4.

I think the likes of EA would live to regret Nintendo failing in the hardware market. If Nintendo made games for PS4 it would spread sales out amongst all the publishers even more. Having said that, EA definitely revelled in their attempts to kill Wii u so I'm half expecting them to run an ad campaign warning people not to buy NX!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Preview: Getting Lost in the World of Xenoblad...:

I'm excited! I'm a little nervous... I won't be using motion controls.

I am pumped for this game but judging on my progress in XC, I could play this for a year and barely scratch the surface. It almost annoys me that Monolith Soft can beef up a game with almost endless content but other Nintendo studios are happy to give us the bare minimum. Let's hope Monolith help fill Zelda U!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Super Smash Bros. Fan Provides a Suprisingly D...:

Dear Nintendo,

Get the Smash team to resurrect all my favourite dormant franchises. Nobody else at Nintendo ever wants to make the ultimate version of the IP they're working on. Let the MK8 team handle the DLC though. Smash DLC was extortionate by comparison.



Nintenjoe64 commented on SEGA Posts Financial Results, Sales are Down a...:

If they're making more money releasing terrible games than when they were actually trying, they'll carry on putting less money into development and hoping it keeps paying off.

I don't really care too much about them reviving old stuff but I'd like to see Saturn and Dreamcast VC. Saturn has a few all time classics and I'd say Dreamcast has more.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Reaction: Nintendo's First Mobile App, Miitomo...:

Only 200 million Miis made? My niece has probably made that many on my Wii and Wii U on her own.

I can't see why I would ever want this app but I'll be all over any turn based strategy games they want to release on mobile. Good luck Ninty!
