Pod commented on Devil's Third is Being Published by Nintendo o...:

Yeah, the shooter fan-base didn't take as quickly to the Wii U as Nintendo had seemed to hope. So it's probably a good idea to have the game also available on PC. That crazy device everyone has.

Pod commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

I never subscribed to Itagaki and company's scool of design, neither in terms of controls, game structure, or visuals.

That said, please contain yourselves. Devil's Third does not look like a PS2 game, and at least what he is saying is somewhat true for the Ninja Gaiden titles he oversaw. If you didn't want to get good at those, they were terrible games.

Pod commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

@Aromaiden
That's not what I'm sayng at all, though.
Before Zelda, Mario, or any of their other franchises existed, Nintendo had to believe in their new creations as being something the market would like, from playtester reactions and so on.
More than ever Nintendo needs to stay ahead of the gaming companies that are willing to quickly and cheaply produce whatever uncreative desire the masses are screaming to have fulfilled.

I want Nintendo to come up with something better than I can. I want them to surprise me.

Pod commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

My main hope is that Nintendo will stick with the philosophy of my favorite quote from Iwata.

"If you want to surprise people, it would be silly to ask them what they want."

Don't make what people demand you make, or what they tell you they would like. Make what you from observation and analysis believe will suprise and delight them.

Pod commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

This has multiple explanations, I think. People who bought into the Wii U want more Miyamoto Magic, so he does need to focus his efforts.

In the other end, I would understand if third parties were fearful of a new system spearheaded by Miyamoto, that either it would play out as a casual fad, with completely unpredictable sales, or be too intricate for the common market, like the Wii U.

Pod commented on Review: Never Alone (Wii U eShop):

I am all for using the game medium in inventive ways, and I'm a bit of an enthusiast regarding inuit tribe culture, so I still might eventually give it a spin.

Pod commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

Xbox owners are in for a treat if they really play all these games. :)

And if they're young, they're in for a rough awakening as to how difficult games used to be, but also how intricate they used to be, and how vapid most modern games are by comparison.

Pod commented on Yup, Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Is Definitely S...:

Too bad, it was my impression they really had some neat features going on with the Wii U version of Black Ops 2 and Ghosts.

But it really ha only been going one way with the sales of the Wii versions of the series. From 2.25 million for Call of Duty 3 to 0.25 million for Ghosts, I totally get why they wouldn't consider it worth the effort anymore.
