Royalblues commented on Feature: What If The SNES PlayStation Had Actu...:

Nintendo must be kicking their own shins every time they hear of the success of the Playstation and thinking back to what could have been.

I'm glad the game industry went on the way it did, because SONY and Microsoft have been giving us some of the most innovative games and gaming experiences in the past decade.



Royalblues commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

3 years is way too early in my opinion to be talking about a new console. Each console is supposed to last a long time, and grow an audience before releasing the next one. At least 5 years, but more is better. Dedicated console players like myself won't go anywhere if the console makers don't release consoles so soon.

But it's okay.



Royalblues commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

They had better have a killer launch when the Nintendo 10 comes out.

Otherwise, I'm afraid it will be their last console.

Of course, I won't be getting it, since Nintendo has lost my faith in them a long time ago. I just don't want them to be like Sega was in the 90s.



Royalblues commented on Feature: Five Key Moments from Nintendo's E3:

The sad thing is that Metroid as a franchise can potentially be Nintendo's gateway into mature storytelling. Instead they made everything cutesy in Federation Force, and that just sends the wrong message.

You don't even need Samus for a good metroid game. You can just have the game set in the same universe, and have a rich, detailed backstory for the game, and characters that develop over time and conflict. But when you turn a franchise whose overall theme is aloneness and desolation into something like this, of course you are going to drive long time fans away.

But at least new gamers will know the name Metroid. It just won't mean the same thing.

Here's hoping the product itself is good. Someone said the "Luigi's Mansion 3DS" team is behind it, so it shouldn't be too bad at least.



Royalblues commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

Sorry guys, but on the console front, Nintendo just rendered itself irrelevant. Now I'm off to Xbox/Playstation land in the future.

I can't buy a Nintendo console if I know it's good for 3 games (Zelda, Mario Kart and Smash). As good as they are, I need more than 3 to keep a console in my living room, and Nintendo is not doing any good on providing that.

The NX may be as powerful or even moreso than the PS4 and Xbox One, but at this point, nobody is intersted enough in Nintendo to care, and they'll create this dilemma for themselves for a third console in a row where their technology is in-between generations in terms of power from MS and Sony's current and future consoles. Then there will be the famous "Nintendo's console is too weak for us to make a game for." Not to mention they will try so hard to innovate that they will make hardware that makes it even more of a chore, and more costly to develop for their console, like the Wii U.

It's a darn shame, but it's the truth. Gamers saw through the Nintendo fluff and are ready to move on. So am I.

Good bye Nintendo.



Royalblues commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

I nearly bought the Wii U a while back. I'm glad I didn't, or else I would have sold it, or given it away to my brother.

This year's E3 solidified my stance: I'm not buying the Wii U period. I highly doubt the NX will have anything for me as well, so I guess I'm done with Nintendo home consoles.

Microsoft is where it's at these days, and Sony is looking good as well, but they are still largely lacking a solid reason to buy their system.

Until SFV.



Royalblues commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

Wholly met my expectations.

That is to say, I knew it would be mediocre. Shame on you Nintendo.
As much as I know you guys aren't going to like reading this, I feel as if Nintendo is going to leave the console business soon. Just Handhelds and mobile for them. The NX will be Nintendo's last hurrah, unless they really do something to capture the core gaming audience, who, believe it or not, are mostly the same people who played games 20 years ago. We got older, and we expect more than what Nintendo has shown us. Better gameplay, better storytelling, deep worlds. Nintendo just does not offer that.



Royalblues commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Is The Metroid...:

This reveal was the pinnacle of the word "anti-climax" for any Metroid Prime fans, mysef included.

There can be flame wars all over the Internet over who won this year's E3, but one thing is for sure: Nintendo won't come up in those conversations.




Royalblues commented on Star Fox Zero Marks An Explosive Return To For...:

@Yorumi Lol

True enough about SONY, but they have to. Nintendo has to as well, but they're more traditional, and like to withhold their stuff. I generally meant companies like Nintendo, Atlus, and other Japanese companies that aren't facing the stiffest competition over hardware.

I know Nintendo is facing such competition, but for some reason, they're excluding themselves.

This was a VERY bad E3 for them. Where is the only Zelda game that matters?



Royalblues commented on Star Fox Zero Marks An Explosive Return To For...:

@Technosphile Lol. Yeah, this show is pretty underwhelming. I'm glad I didn't invest money in a Wii U, or the toys.

But at the same time, I feel like these Japanese companies wait to show what they really have until TGS, which they should not do because E3 is literally the biggest stage to show off your games all year.



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

Such denial here, as expected. The Xbox One is an incredible piece of hardware, as are the Playstation 4 and Wii U. Just because Mario's mustache isn't all over the games does not make it less good.

As a matter of fact, the Wii U has been the most lacking console since even before the announcements of the PS4 and Xbox One.

You guys are just hilarious.



Royalblues commented on Minecraft Clone Cube Life: Island Survival Con...:

Call me what you will, a soft progressive or liberal or whatever, but I hate the fact that all the non-animal bad guys are brown people.

Makes me feel some type of way. Granted, it is an island they're on, presumably a tropical one, but still, I don't like it.

Aside from that fact, I'm glad you Nintendo fans get a game like this. I've been wanting Minecraft to come to the Wii U, the MOST OBVIOUS HOME for the game, even moreso than PC, but that dream was dashed when M$ bought Mojang. Oh, well. This will have to do.



Royalblues commented on Nintendo of America Apologises for amiibo Shor...:

Grown men complaining over toys. You guys are almost as bad as comic book fans complaining about people who don't even exist.

I knew Amiibo would be crap when it came out. Nintendo wasn't fooling me. Besides, how many other games besides Smash will use this cheap novelty by the time Nintendo is ready to move on? What in the world are these toys adding to the games theyalready work for? "Oh, good, you can bring your custom characters anywhere." Blah blah blah. Still doesn't justify a purchase.



Royalblues commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off a Series of New Thir...:

They don't know I jealous I am of them. Puyo Puyo is one of my favorite games of all time. We can't even get an English translation of Puyo Puyo Tetris.

In fact, Our last Puyo game was released 10 years ago!!! Thankfully, I have a copy of it for DS,and I carry it around with me almost everyday, as a good luck charm.



Royalblues commented on New Avengers Game, With Spider-Man, is Swingin...:

This is cool. I guess this answers my question of whether or not there is a Japanese equivalent to weaboos, that love western stuff so much they pretend to know their culture.

Anyway, I'm glad Japan seems to like the Avengers.



Royalblues commented on Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino Leaked for Pokém...:


I don't care if it's just Audino, I'm GLAD that there is finally a 5th gen Mega Pokemon. 5th gen is my favorite, and has some of my favorite Pokemon. Now I just need them to make megas of my three favorite 5th gen mons; Excadrill, Haxorus, and Mienshao!



Royalblues commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Won't Bring Live Twitch Stre...:

If it is just gameplay without commentary, I kind of agree. If it also means removing potential streams that have commentary, then this is just a stupid sentiment. Isn't the Wii U capable of voice-chatting and such things? If so, then there is no reason not to include twitch streaming. Just stupid.

But I guess this also aligns with Nintendo's need to control ad revenue from people who play their games (which I don't blame them), so, hmm



Royalblues commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

@lividd3ad You raise a very good point indeed.I feel the same way in regards to comic books. I don't know if you care about comics from DC or Marvel, but there are currently 4 comics with people of color as the lead from both companies combined, and it annoys the heck out of me.

It makes me feel like people want kids to believe what the default human is. Also in the last generation of video game protagonists were shaven middle-aged white dudes. So yeah, I agree, diversity is important as hell.

I just don't know what a black Princess would look like from a Mario game lol. I don't think they would get her look right.



Royalblues commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

Generally, whenever I see comments on the internet that begin with "speaking as a black man" or have the phrase "I'm black, but..." I generally tend to disregard the comment as an excuse for an anonymous person to speak racist opinions on the web.

HOWEVER... I'm black, and I've never been bothered by the whiteness of Nintendo's characters. Japanese people in general have little to no exposure to black people, so what would I expect.
Japanese people take many inspirations from what they see of Hollywood movies, and how many of those have predominant black characters in them?

Needless to say, Tekken's Raven character is still awesome.



Royalblues commented on Nintendo's Plan for "Redefining the Definition...:

Tells me not to buy that trash Wii U. It was a good call to save my money. Video game consoles are supposed to be a years-long investment. Not something that is to be terminated in a mere 4 years. I learned from the SEGA Saturn.
