Parasky commented on Meet LeapTV, The Wii Challenger in 2014:

Motion controls haven't been relevant for about half a decade, so why release this dated rubbish now? I don't hate LeapFrog (edutainment is cool with me) but I feel like this has popped out of a time machine.

Parasky commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

@CaviarMeths All they are really is larger phones that can display more content on the screen. They're much easier to use for extended periods and are more compact than a laptop, and usually have better battery lives; overall still not a good of a experience than a actual laptop, but close enough. My nexus 7 2012 has basically replaced my laptop due to how portable a convenient.

And convenient is the key word here. A tablet is not a essential as a phone and is just a comfier phone.

On the actual topic, I agree with @MysticX that it's mainly due to convenience. Why bother bringing around a game console, mp3 player, camera and phone when you can have all in one. While smartphones don't bring the best experiences for each function, it's easy just to have one device rather than a whole arsenal of them.

Don't see decided gaming consoles surviving for at the most a decade due to how most phones are getting really good at gaming though. They just need to make the game controller support more streamlined and you can have a experience just like, if not better (due to higher clarity screens and more processing power) than a 3DS/Vita.

tl;dr CONVENIENCE

@Technosphile In a way, I agree. Casual pokémon fans would be okay with a ios pokemon game. However it's suicide for their hardcore pokemon fans. Hey, I'm open to a ios pokemon game, plus a remake would make more sense as it wouldn't be a completely new experience. However I don't really like smartphone gaming in general.

Looking forward to these remakes anyway.

@Mahe Honestly, the Wii U is so underpowered compared to the PS4/XBOX1 then there is no point in having it. I can see them releasing a budget version without the gamepad, but cutting off the entire support for the gamepad is stupid. Make it a premium accessory.

Also, the main reason why Nintendo is failing is because of the poor marketing.

If they get rid of the gamepad, they will lose the only real differentiating feature of the Wii U aside for it's IP's/price.

Also, nintendo isn't going under. That's unrealistic. But people underplaying these losses - the issue with nintendo is apart from games they do nothing else. There's nothing else which they specialise in, which is why that health thing there looking at is so intriguing. Perhaps a nintendo health watch?

Parasky commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

I don't see anything in the mobile space really turn around unless it's something that Apple makes by them selves. I think Logitech (great company, love there PC controllers) needs more support if they want to even compete with dedicate game consoles.

And calling it the end of Nintendo? Is the Nintendo bashwagon really becoming this hyperbolic.

Parasky commented on Wii Sports Club Takes The Competition Online W...:

I hope most of the comments here are sarcastic, as this is stupid. All it is is a HD version of a game which shouldn't been remade.

And then there's the stupid payment model and the fact this isn't new content.

How can anyone be exited for this?

If Nintendo want to be future proofed for on-line, they NEED to implement some kind of account system.

Also, replaying Pokémon Black to get ready for x/y? Why did you have to choose the worst pokemon game ever?

Parasky commented on Oh Snap, Now Rayman Legends Is Coming To PS Vi...:

A lot of hardcore Nintendo fanboyism here.

I'm just happy vita owners are actually getting a good game on there system to add to the 3 others on the system. At least the exclusive content isn't on a home console version other than the Wii U.

Parasky commented on Round Table: Let's Talk About the 3DS:

I like my 3DS, but I wouldn't say I love it, as it's build quality is rather poor. The d-pad is horrible and chipped and there are lots of scratches on the system. I'm waiting for E3 for a 3DS plus.
