Park_Triolo commented on Nintendo NX Might Be The First Social VR Platf...:

I have this funny feeling that the NX will be an add-on to the WiiU. This would also make perfect sense when one looks at the rumored ridiculously low price of 149$. Furthermore I remember a flowchart that showed the 3DS, WiiU, QoL and NX as all working together and the NX was described as the fourth leg.

Anyway... it will be interesting to see what it really is, but we will have to wait until next E3 and maybe a release sometime in 2017.



Park_Triolo commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

I've just been to the Gamescom convention in Cologne and what a ride. 3 titles in particular raised my attention, all of them indie... 1. Guns, Gore and Cannoli 2. Inside my Radio and 3. Go to Bed (I think it was go). From the poster we can look forward to Guns, Gore and Cannoli on the WiiU, but the other two I don't know... at least the people behind Inside my Radio are in negotiations with Ninty or so the developer told me. All 3 games were really great and super innovative... something certain other developers could learn a lot from... YES, I'm looking at all of you... EA, Ubisoft, Activision etc.



Park_Triolo commented on Philips Secures Wii Patent Victory Over Ninten...:

@kereke12 Apple jealous of Samsung... haha. This whole Apple/Samsung court thing was all planned from the very beginning. Look at all the media coverage both companies got. I'll bet you a raw fish restaurant trip to Pohang in Korea that Apple and Samsung are sitting/sat together having delicious dinners while smiling wide at all the cash flowing in and other companies struggling to gain attention.



Park_Triolo commented on Mario Kart 8 Club Nintendo Promotion Offers a ...:

Hmmm... I live in Denmark, but I have a UK Club Nintendo account... should work, or what do you guys think?! I was considering buying Mario Kart 8 on then register it for my free game and then get either Wind Waker or Monster Hunter.



Park_Triolo commented on Industry Veteran Peter Molyneux Warns The Indi...:

@JohnRedcorn Maybe YOU missed all the trash he's been throwing around about Nintendo and WiiU.

Peter Is a burned out grumpy old guy, who's jealous of people in the gaming industry, in this case Nintendo, who have innovative ideas that make for new and exciting ways to enjoy gaming.
But why listen to all this doom and gloom... the WiiU is great, I have a bunch of games for it that I didn't even finish yet, and so many more are coming... cheer up Mr. Molyneux and start looking for a carreer change... please!!!



Park_Triolo commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

@unrandomsam Hmmm... truth is that MS is in for a shake up, when Balmer monkey steps out the backdoor and a new CEO steps in. Fact is that the Xbox division has been hemorrhaging money since its inception, so the first thing a new CEO will do is to cut off the sick and dead limbs of the ailing tree... goodbye Xbox. MS is going to focus on what they do best, namely Windows and business applications... stuff they actually make money on.

When it comes to SONY, well, they are in even deeper poo. They are selling off assets and buildings just to keep financially afloat, and just because they sell a few millions of the PS4 to begin with doesn't mean that it covers their PS4 R&D expenses, not by far. As much as I like the PS4, it will have to do phenomenally well to save SONY from ruin.

Then we have Nintendo. They are a company that actually is ONLY about gaming and also the ONLY company that is currently swimming in money. But that doesn't mean they can just sit back and get foot massages, as it seems they've been doing for the first 6 months of 2013. After the first 6 months they finally got around to doing something constructively with the WiiU, and it was about time they did. Now, noone can expect a co sole to sell 20 million units within a timeframe of 6 months, but slowly the WiiU will gather more and more momentum, just wait and see. Nintendo have just now begun to do stuff the right way... admittedly VERY late, but at least they are finally at it. Now they need to focus on getting the message out there, and I mean the right message that people understand, and then they have to STOP relying on word of mouth, which is probably the most stupid thing you can do in the console business, well in any business. ADVERTISE the hell out of all available media all the way down to printing adverts on toilet paper in public toilets... I mean EVERYWHERE!!! Then start getting some games onto the system. Admittedly there are a bunch of very cool games coming, but we need more like Bayonetta 2... we need Nintendo to invest HEAVILY in 3rd party games and when the opportunity presents itself, they have to make certain 3rd party publishers 2nd party.

But now let's see what happens. Nintendo is not doomed, the WiiU will do nicely in the long run, and we will have a lot of very memorable games for it in the coming months and years. Nintendo, as always, will pull something amazing out of the sleeve and will, again as always, show the industry what makes a REAL gaming company.



Park_Triolo commented on NPD Results Deliver a 3DS Milestone And Modest...:

Sorry, but why are US sales of possibly 220.000 Wii Us a bad thing? Especially considering the fact that 2 new consoles just launched. Then there is the fact that November should actually see lower numbers as people usually wait until December to make their X-mas purchases.
Why is it that we can't just enjoy our Wii U without the constant doom-BS?! When the PS4 and Xbone start sliding downhill, I guess noone will notice, but they will slide, and they will slide fast. People are not swimming in money these days, and that's exactly why parents will not buy a 600$-700$ console (if you have to get one game, extra controller and online) for x-mas with no games other than the usual FPS-crap with only marginally better graphics.




Park_Triolo commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Confirms Playable Cranky Kong...:

Seriously... VGX is probably the worst pile of garbage I've ever seen in my life. What the hell happened to those presenters at birth? Someone must have dropped them on the floor. And what about that embarassingly bad feature with 2 screaming idiots... supposed to be fun??? Well, now I understand why Nintendo take very much care, when they choose events to attend. But it seems they didn't see this rubbish coming. As for the different games being shown, I have one keyword: Uninspired. Thank God Nintendo came around with some quality that made VGX shine, even if it was just for a few moments before sinking into the sea of mediocrity again.

Thumbs up for Reggie, NoA and DKC:TF



Park_Triolo commented on Review: Super Mario 3D World (Wii U):

@D3athBr1ng3r187 Ooooooh, now you are psychic, are you? I ONLY play Nintendo-games? Well, let me fill in the obvious blanks in your brain:

1. I play PC games, Mac games, PS1 games, PS2 games, Wii games, Wii U games, iOS games and Android games.

2. As I tried to explain, I actually watched the trailer for Knack, and as far as I could see there were a lot of tanks and explosions and such... well, maybe they were only fireworks?!

3. I am not biased as I know the quality of Nintendo. On the other hand I also know the quality of Sony's titles and also what to expect most from the other consoles... and that is FPS and war/violence. I am not bashing SONY, as I've had a lot of fun playing God of War 1 and 2, but Knack is neither family friendly nor is it graphically on par with Super Mario 3D World judged from the trailer, I watched.

You can troll me all you want, I really don't care. The only thing I ask is that you let me and others enjoy the WiiU and the many cool games we have for our machine.

Thank you in advance...



Park_Triolo commented on Review: Super Mario 3D World (Wii U):

Someone mentioned Knack... how the hell does Knack compare to this epic piece of absolute Nintendo magic?! Firstly, as far as I can see in the trailer for the game, Knack is based on violence/war, which of course is typical for the other consoles and if you want to rate graphics, well, they are nothing compared to Super Mario 3D World. Again we have a winner... go Nintendo. Super Mario 3D World... you will also be miiiiine.



Park_Triolo commented on EA Executive: Shigeru Miyamoto is 'Falling Dow...:

That lowlife should offer a public apology to the family of Steve Jobs. How dare he make such a heartless and cold remark?! He is not even worthy of being walked upon by my 5 years old dirty worn out shoes. Well, maybe he is smelling the coffee about the non existing quality and money loss his company stands for, but he won't admit it.



Park_Triolo commented on Out Now: Pikmin 3 Finally Lands in North America:

It's ok...
So you have an Android phone too. I used to only have iPhones anf then I wanted to try a Galaxy... biiiig mistake... how I miss my iPhone.
Pikmin 3 is actually so great that it could mean a major turnaround for Nintendo. They should kiss Miyamotos feet in gratitude back home in Kyoto.



Park_Triolo commented on Deep Silver Has "No Plans" To Support Wii U:

Who needs a booooring game like Dead Island, when we get Resident Evil? I mean... come on... the trailers for the game were awesome, but the game sucked/sucks. Let's move on to all the cool stuff that is on the way for Wii U... AC IV, Watchdogs, Splinter Cell, Batman Arkham Origins and all the first party stuff too... 2013 is gonna be a great year to be a Nintendo fan.



Park_Triolo commented on Wii U Version Of Dead Island: Riptide "Not Wor...:

Not the developers fault... the publisher is the one to blame here... again!!! Anyway... truth is actually that the Dead Island prerelease trailer was cool... unfortunately the same could not be said about the game itself. Anyway, yes... we have ZombieU and soon we'll have the "real thing" in RE for WiiU, so who cares about Dead Island?!



Park_Triolo commented on Nintendo Is Not Working On Fix For Wii U's Slo...:

Jeeeeeesus... people today are SPOILED... I got my first electronic entertainment device in 1982... a ZX Spectrum 16K (which was later upgraded to 48K for close to 150 $ at the time). Do ANYONE out there remember the load times of that era? Or how about loading up Arcadia on a Commodore 64 WITHOUT turbotape? 20 minutes, people... 20 MINUTES!!!
Come on... loading times on the WiiU are 10 times faster than the speed of light in comparison and more than acceptable.
Yes, I'm old... 44 years of age... we bought the WiiU for our daughter, buuuuut of course also for my wife and I, and we love it.
