RCMADIAX commented on The Man Who Created Trollface Wants A Cut Of M...:

I got to chime in on this.

1) Based on what I know about the sales charts and what it takes to top them, I will guesstimate that he sold over 10,000 copies at least. He made money. Tons of it.

2) I have read over my NDA with Nintendo several times. There is no part of it that binds us to NOT release sales numbers. With that being said, Nintendo kindly asks us to keep this information private. What's stopping us from releasing this info? Nintendo can, without any reason, pull our license and remove our games from the eShop at any time for any reason. So even if we are not legally bound to not release such info, it is advised not to.

@Captain_Gonru They gave up the license to TMNT to Mega Bloks. Apparently Viacom wanted too much money.

The blue guy your referring to in the movie is Benny, and they sell his spaceship for around $99. I got it and it took me back to my childhood instantly.

They still have the license to Disney properties and make sets based in Star Wars and Marvel, but I'm not sure how that comes into play with video games. Not sure if EAs deal would screw with the LEGO games or not.

I have to say I'm surprised Mattel hasn't stepped into the Toys to Life realm yet. They have been kinda pissed since LEGO outranked them as the worlds largest toy maker. Even going as far as to buy up competing companies and releasing some "questionable" clones of LEGO product.

I'll have to find a source, but I remember hearing the over 50% of LEGOs sold are to Adults.

For me, the LEGO toys to life figures must be actual LEGO figures that can be interchanged with the real LEGO Minifigures. If they just make static non movable figures, that may ruin it for me as an adult that enjoys building Lego.

RCMADIAX commented on Euro Release Of BLOK DROP X Twisted Fusion Sel...:

I really have no idea what you guys are talking about as far as the "EU" vs "EUR" thing goes, lol. I just use EU because I've seen a ton of other devs use it, and Twitters' 140 character limit can be a pain. Carry on with the lesson tho, it's interesting. :)

RCMADIAX commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (Europe):

@alLabouTandroiD In January the prices were changed in the US and most websites, other than Nintendo's official site, have not made those changes. The regular price in the US is $2.99.

@OorWullie I was advised by Nintendo of Europe that EU law restricts the game titles from being on sale more time than being regular price. In order to ensure I am not in violation of this law, I am only going to rarely do sales in Europe after the current Blok Drop U promotion ends. Even when I do have a sale, you will likely be required to own or purchase another title in order to get a discount, which seems to be a popular promotion as of late.

RCMADIAX commented on RCMADIAX Scales Back Wii U Plans for 2015:

@JamesCoote This is 100% correct.

@Mega719 No one is blaming Nintendo, but to make money with software under $5, a larger install base is required to get the volume.

@Quorthon Do you know what my expectation were? No, you don't. I'm not a fool thinking these games would sell 20,000+ units. I set my expectations low enough (really low actually) that the business could sustain itself, but sadly it can't even do that. I'm not the only one having these issues, just the only one talking about it.

RCMADIAX commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

As a developer I wouldn't mind scores going away. All you need is to tell your viewers if you would recommend the game and I think a number score doesn't do a good job at that. A system of "Must Buy, Buy, So-So, and Avoid" would work best.

RCMADIAX commented on Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS G...:

I doubt a new game from Retro Studios will be announced at E3 this year. It has only been 1 year since the release of DKCTF, and Nintendo is known for not showing games off until closer to their release. If a new Metroid were to be revealed this year, its likely from another development studio. But with Nintendo, you never know.

RCMADIAX commented on Nintendo Delays Financial Results Presentation...:

@Quorthon The delay has nothing to do with results. This meeting was scheduled for January 28th, but Iwata became ill and had to push it back. The results for FY15 Q3 were already released over a week ago. Nintendo made a profit, no one is doomed, life goes on. These meetings are nothing but a visual way of explaining the data that is already public knowledge and a chance to tease some future plans to put shareholder minds at rest.

EDIT: For example, in past meetings, Nintendo has teased/announced "amiibo" and "QOL" product lines. They do this to show the shareholders that putting their IP on smart devices is not the only solution, and that they have other plans in mind.

RCMADIAX commented on GameStop Cancels European Rosalina amiibo Pre-...:

This is getting out of hand. The amiibo supply situation is a complete disaster. It's to the point where scalpers in Europe and Japan and now buying common figures in their areas to sell to Americans where we can't get the figures we want. I had to order a PIT from Japan that cost me $40, because I can't find it in store and Target lists it as discontinued now. After just a few weeks of sale. Why does Nintendo not stock these in their online store for everyone to get a fair chance to get?

RCMADIAX commented on Ninja Pig Studios Accused Of Stealing Pixel Ar...:

Oh my... This is... Interesting...

The name Photon Storm is familiar. Did they make a game for the Wii U?

EDIT: Looks like they helped create an HTML5 engine, that developers of Nintendo Web Framework use. Wonder how this will all pan out.

RCMADIAX commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

All this arguing about quality and stuff is getting ridiculous. Do you really have nothing better to do with your time than to tell people how they should be making THEIR games? Let them do what they want, you don't like it than don't buy it and move along. Getting upset and carrying on pointless conversation that gets brought up in basically every article from an individual developer is getting old.

Everyone has their own method of making games. Time to move on people, cause the "Nintendo eShop has quality issues" record is getting overplayed. This is the new normal, get used to it.

Now to actually type something on topic. I enjoyed Maze and even The Letter to a degree, so I look forward to seeing the rest of these games, except maybe the novel because it's not my type of game.
