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.

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.

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!

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!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Feature: The Making Of Eternal Darkness: Sanit...:

This game is so good. Some of it has dated but lots of it has yet to be bettered. It has the best stories I can remember in any game, one that actually made me care about the game. Criminally overlooked by gamers at the time. Poorly marketed by Nintendo too!
The Wii U would be a good fit for it: Spell creating/casting on gamepad, camera and mic for sanity effects (imagine momentarily seeing your own face on a bleeding painting), autopsies with the stylus 'Trauma Centre' style.....

If Nintendo can afford to make games that sell as poorly as W101 they can afford a sequel to this!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Fresh Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Details Reveal Shig...:

The Miyamoto connection seems pretty weak. If I ordered lots of expensive materials to make something that hadnt been finalised for my job, I'd expect to be fired.

It does seem like 'Blame Miyamoto' month at the mo. I'm pretty sure he's not the person insisting on poor marketing and weak hardware. The only thing that annoys me about him is the fact his projects never seem to get made or they're not that good or successful but get sequels....



Nintenjoe64 commented on Weirdness: Miyamoto Wanted A Murder-Free Golde...:

I'm sure there's something lost in translation here. Considering Miyamoto helped make Geist which was pretty macabre.

Saying that, Miyamoto loves trying to derail projects that might stand up to the ones he's worked on.
DKC - he said it wasn't fun
Dinosaur Planet - he forced into Star Fox
Pokemon - he forced all the water



Nintenjoe64 commented on Eiji Aonuma is Aiming For an Open World "Surpr...:

The only surprise I want is them pushing the boundaries of adventure gaming like they did with Ocarina. They need to make Hyrule seem alive by filling it with fun things to do and people to meet. Not surprisingly sparse.

My guess for the surprise is either a time limit, dungeon-order-dependent branching storylines or that it merges two previously separate timelines.

My pessimistic guess is the surprise will be frame rate drops



Nintenjoe64 commented on Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Details Revealed, In...:

@MrGawain have you not played Wii U Tennis? It's infinitely deeper and more skilful than Wii Tennis but has nobody playing. If this game has decent online, a decent community and a better selection of playing options, it will be worth it. There's every chance it won't have all those things though



Nintenjoe64 commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

I can't be the only one thinking 'cutting edge hardware' could mean anything and not necessarily power. The Wii U has hardware features that could've been deemed cutting edge. I reckon it will be an industry leader in quietness and energy efficiency.

I hope they're going back to cartridge based games



Nintenjoe64 commented on Climate "Not Healthy" For Dedicated Handheld G...:

Mobile has already won. Handhelds were good for kids for the last 25 years but now the new generation grows up on android or iOS with free games. Nintendo is even putting content on phones.

Hopefully handheld gamers support the next device well so it doesn't die out entirely!
