Oubie commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

I think Nintendo should announce a seasonal limited edition Super Smash Bros. Bundle for $250 with a promotional code to get 1 free game... Like they did with Mario Kart 8. After the holidays the bundle can go back to $300 if the Xbox One returns to its normal price of $400 and the PS4 stays at $400.

Oubie commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Continues to Thrash ...:

Nintendo needs to release more bundles for the Wii U asap... A bundle with Smash is a must! And a promotion with getting 1 game free if you register Smash, like they did with Mario Kart 8. All this followed by a price cut in the Spring of 2015.

I NEED SOME AGGRESSIVE PROMOTION RIGHT NOW!

Oubie commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Continues to Thrash ...:

Concerning the Wii U... It's just very poor scheduling of its games simply because of the lack there of. October and November are barren in Japan. Captain Toad comes out there on Nov 13 and Smash on Dec 6... that's it. The Wii U needs at least some quirky Japanese games, but sadly even those games aren't being developed anymore.

I hope Nintendo will give Kuju Entertainment one last chance to make a 3rd Battalion Wars, this time with much better controls, HD graphics, online multiplayer. I think the GamePad could be implemented in very clever ways for this action/strategy title. Maybe I'm the only one, but I loved part 2 on the Wii :)

@WaveBoy Hahaha true. Completely understand you! Maybe Nintendo will now focus on the real games for the fans on the Wii U...and let all those nongames shine on their Quality of Health platform next year. Maybe we will be a niche, but we will have a system just for us. I WANT AMAZING NINTENDO GAMES FOR NINTENDO GAMERS!!!

Sorry :)

Predictions for Wii U:

  • Updates about Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and Mario Kart 8
  • Updates about eShop titles like: Child of Light, Wooden Sen’SeY, Scram Kitty and his Buddy on Rails, Shovel Knight, Tengami and Pier Solar HD

Although it says only Spring, but when are we going to see more about X, Bayonetta 2, Yoshi Wii U and Fire Emblem VS Shin Megami Tensei? Want to see a surprise announcement too and more Virtual Console games.

PS: I've seen enough of Super Smash Bros.!!!

Oubie commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

These upcoming months will be very important for Nintendo, they must shine (AND GIVE A LIVE PRESENTATION!!!) at E3 with a new look and strategy.

PS: please invest in those Nintendo Directs...painfully to watch from a marketing perspective, though I like the idea and surprises now and then.

Oubie commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

@Kmno I totally get what you mean. But yes, the GamePad didn't really convince me to buy the Wii U. As I read in the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze preview, even Retro/Nintendo don't really know anymore what to do with it. And I guess Mario Kart 8, Smash and Bayonetta 2 also won't blow me away with the usage of the GamePad.

One thing though: I really don't think that after the Wii generation hardcore gamers would suddenly come back to buy a Wii U even if the console would've had the specs of the PS4/Xbox One because they got attached to the games and communities around those systems.

I just hope they do something, this way is a dead end to me...I didn't bought a Wii U to stare at a blank screen while playing a high profile 1st party game like Donkey... But maybe I did if it was marketed as the next HD console from Nintendo with traditional controls haha

Oubie commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

@Kmno But is it really bad to have 'just a PS3 or 360 from Nintendo'? If the games are amazing for us with a normal control scheme, the Nintendo fans, why shouldn't they just be on the Pro Controller? The PS3/360 got great games in their cycle. After all those years with the WiiRemote I thought most Nintendo fans wanted to have a traditional controller again, while still supporting the WiiRemote/nunchuck. They can sell the GamePad as a premium value accessory, to have a 'complete' Wii U experience.

Oubie commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

@BrightBeing I don't really get the part about being underpowered...if you upgrade from the Wii how can it be underpowered? The games are beautiful in HD in my opinion. I don't look at the PS4 or Xbox One because they simply don't have my Nintendo games, so I can only look back at the Wii to compare the games on the Wii and Wii U.

Oubie commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

I think it can (and must) lose the GamePad. Why does Nintendo's console needs to have a different control scheme to be an unique system? After the Wii era, all I wanted was to have a beautiful HD console with better online capabilities (MiiVerse is fantastic!!).

They tried it with the GamePad, but there's almost not a single game that really blew me away with the way how they integrated the controller. It can live on as an accessory (like the Wii Balance Board) and be succesful in its own right. But because they need to make drastic decisions now, they can better focus on the games with the Pro Controller / Wii Remote + Nunchuck and make them fantastic...it would also be better to bridge the gap with 3rd Parties.

This way they can bring the price of the Wii U way down, have fantastic 'traditional' games and offer GamePad owners value through extra modes in those games or via the eShop and of course Off-TV play, marketing it as a premium value for the complete Wii U experience.

Does anyone agree with me?

Oubie commented on Pokémon X & Y Reign Supreme in Japan Once Aga...:

Correct me if i'm wrong, but I thought Japan would get either a price cut for the Wii U or new attractive bundles, the ones with Wii Party U / Wii Fit U on the 30th or 31st of October. I hope the sales will pick up a bit then.

Oubie commented on Nintendo Download: 31st October (Europe):

Why is there zero promotion on tv about Wii Fit U? Or are they waiting for the physical release around Dec 6 (Europe), Dec 13 (NA)? And what about Wii Sports Club? I know Club is only a digital release but still... 2 of the most succesful products of the Wii era need a bigger marketing push!

Oubie commented on Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Is A ...:

I would buy this game on disc anyway... I only buy exclusive eShop and Virtual Console games digitally, maybe for a game like Animal Crossing, sports or party game I would go and play daily for an hour. Then it's a lot handier to have those games ready with one click away. For adventures like Deus Ex, play time is much longer and I simply looove my box arts too much :)

@TreesenHauser Yeah, that's true. But i think it's a little bit awkward timing to show something of Zelda Wii U now. In my other comments i was expressing my worries about the lack of preview builds etc. to give the upcoming games some exposure. These games need to sell the Wii U now, so that the Wii U is still around when Zelda Wii U launches sometime in the future.

Give the media some new preview builds of the exclusive Wii U games for this fall to build some excitement and media coverage.

Super Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Sonic: Lost World, Wii Party U, Mario & Sonic at the Olympics, Wii Sports Club, Wii Fit U.

@TreesenHauser Don't expect anything from Zelda Wii U. Maybe in a Direct in February or March to start build excitement for late 2014. This Direct will probably focus on the big titles leading up till Xmas. It would be amazing if they'd surprise us tomorrow with an first glimpse of Zelda Wii U

Oubie commented on Nintendo Direct: Wii U And 3DS Broadcast Comin...:

I find it really strange that they don't let the media preview and play the games for this fall to build some excitement and give them exposure.

We need far more coverage on these 3DS games:

Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Mario Party: Island Tour, Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, Bravely Default, Sonic: Lost World (3DS version), Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate. They're all coming out in Europe before 2014!

PS: I've seen enough of Pokémon X & Y.

Oubie commented on Rumour: Wii U New Super Mario Bros. and New Su...:

Finally some action from Nintendo: If this is true, the basic bundle and the Nintendo Land bundle are finally gone! For 300 euros/dollars the console plus Zelda Wind Waker HD or Mario U + Luigi U. That's a 160 euros/dollars gap between a PS4 plus 1 game (aprox. 460).

The other exclusives: Wii Party U, Scribblenauts Unmasked, Wii Fit U, Sonic Lost World, Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Mario & Sonic at the Olympics, should do just fine on their own...maybe in the future a Wii Party U bundle like the Wii got a couple of years ago. Mario Kart 8 bundle should be a no brainer for Nintendo, they have to be aggresive this fall, winter and spring!
