@EarthboundBenjy Amiibo integration is rubbish when it's just being used for disc-locked dlc like in Splatoon. The way Smash Bros used it to train the amiibo up is ingenious. Amiibo needs to be used to enhance the game, not take away features and content. Developers should treat it like physical DLC.

Also, when games/amiibo become discontinued, I think the people at Nintendo should consider releasing the amiibo exclusive content to players without the needed amiibo for long-term support.

"Using this, you can add additional information relating to your Mii, such as the date of your birthday. You can also store up to 100 close friends in a special "VIP" room."

I need to say this. Why on earth are they making something that should really be a free update into paid DLC? And how is this getting under the rug?

The people who are calling this betrayal. rolls eyes

The game looks crazy interesting and the teaser didn't reveal anything perceiving to a sonic x pokemon crossover (which, knowing both fanbases, would be flat-out horrifying).

I'm happy to see GF experimenting; they're not going to leave nintendo anytime soon.

The Wii U still suffers from a identity crisis and some people still think that the 3DS is just "another DS". They need to start a new branding scheme for there next set of consoles otherwise it will become even more confusing.



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.

@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.




Parasky commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire ...:

@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.



Parasky commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

@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.



Parasky commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

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?
