SethNintendo commented on Nintendo Life Weekly: Splatoon, Project CARS, ...:

Yea, they might as well not even release Project Cars anymore. PR disaster and no respect for the Nintendo community by keeping them in the complete dark for ages. I was once pumped for this game but I'll wait for 90s Arcade Racer and Road Redemption if they ever come out.



SethNintendo commented on Review: Splatoon (Wii U):

I think I might wait for a price drop on this one. It should have been 40-50 dollars considering pricing in Europe seems to be so cheap. The dollar has been climbing against the Euro as of recently to .92 of a Euro.

I'm sure in a couple months I'll find a decent price drop on Amazon. I'd like to join in on the fun now but I might wait after seeing drops on W101 (bought it new for about $20) and a few other games. I'd like to support new IPs buying at full price but the lack of single player and limited local multiplayer make me want to wait for price drop. I still might splurged in a few weeks if tempted enough.



SethNintendo commented on Feature: The Poor Career Choice of Super Smash...:

I don't understand why people like watching other people play video games. Sure it used to be cool to watch really good players at SF2, MK, etc back in the arcade days while waiting your turn to play but I just don't see the appeal of watching tournaments or youtube "lets play crap". I can maybe watch about 5 mins of gameplay from video game before I start getting bored.

Video games are to be played not watched. I've been to a few friend's places where they were playing single player games like Skyrim and it was so boring after watching for a few mins. I was actually almost embarrassed the first game convention I went to when I saw people cheering to what I assumed to be a LoL tournament on the big screen. You couldn't pay me money to watch other people play video games. I didn't read any word of this article. I just wanted to complain.



SethNintendo commented on Talking Point: Mario Maker Can Be A Game Chang...:

I am pretty interested in Mario Maker even though I have sought little to no information about it (I barely skimmed this article too). It is pretty obvious what the game is about. I expect a decent amount of things in the game but understand it will probably be lacking in some areas of customization.

However, I wouldn't like to see a lot of spin offs of maker titles. Track editors are fine enough for a racing game (would be nice even if you had to pay 5 or 10 for DLC track editor (which hopefully keeps getting things added (for free)) to the editor over time and allow users to share their levels through Miiverse/online. Basically, they should stick to having level editors in their games besides making a lot of maker type games. Metroid and Donkey Kong would be the only other series that would really good for a maker game. Fire Emblem Maker would be crazy if allowed to make entire stories and characters. Most would probably use bad language in the story. I know I would.



SethNintendo commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

@evosteevo Yea, I was disappointed that the Wii VC arcade selection pretty much stopped right when it got started and that they never got to 90s arcade games. I don't see why they can't get more VC releases going. They should upgrade the entire (or at least the higher selling titles) Wii VC to Wii U eshop with save points and Miiverse integration.



SethNintendo commented on Nintendo Highlights Increased US Hardware Sale...:

Nintendo needs to step it up even more considering 3rd parties have abandoned the Wii U. Hopefully, they can court them back with their supposed unified next gen system. However, I am sure the major 3rd party companies will always be able to find an excuse to neglect Nintendo systems.



SethNintendo commented on Feature: A Day in The Future Life of a Nintend...:

Don't really care for a Nintendo app considering I recently went back to a "dumb" phone for better battery life (I don't have to charge it every night; plus I don't care about smartphone games/apps, internet, or text on a phone). Smartphone integration will please some but to me it is a non factor. I prefer buttons and analog sticks over touch. Yep, I'm old school. Might have to go back to a pager or brick phone and Game Boy combo.



SethNintendo commented on SteamWorld Heist's Capers Face a Delay:

Loved Steamworld Dig. Love turn based strategy. Hate incomplete / buggy games. I have no problem with the delay to make sure the game is 100%. I'd actually like to give them a hug considering so many other developers release incomplete/buggy games all the time now.



SethNintendo commented on OlliOlli Arrives on Wii U and 3DS Next Week, C...:

Cross buy actually made me more interested in looking into this title. I am one who will never double dip for a VC game that I have on one system. All VC titles should be cross buy. I mentioned this on VC game surveys for Club Nintendo. Hopefully the talk about an unified system are true.



SethNintendo commented on Weirdness: BAFTA Appears To Have Clean Forgott...:

I understand this is a British site but...

British Academy of Film and Television Arts.... Who cares? I guarantee anyone that doesn't live in the UK has never heard of this group nor cares what they think. They might as well be the Film Actors Guild from Team America.



SethNintendo commented on Video: See How The New Nintendo 3DS Compares T...:

I might pick a New 3DS XL up if I have spare cash. I wouldn't mind getting the MH4 bundle but not sure if I'll have enough free cash at the time (I should with tax return). Interested in bigger size (only have regular 3DS) and improved 3D. I will say one thing though... I can't see 3D unless I wear contacts or glasses because apparently my eye sight is too crappy without corrective lenses (just see double images without lenses). I mainly play without 3D effect now considering the sweet spot is too sensitive sometimes.



SethNintendo commented on Nintendo Steps Away From The Brazilian Market:

How the heck do any Brazilians afford to pay those prices? The few rich? Because I can't even afford that over inflated price on my 12.50 per hour crap job in USA. Must be the 1% buying them because I can't imagine the average worker being able to afford overpriced electronics. I'm sure the poor/middle class would rather eat than spend their entire salary on a phone or video game system.



SethNintendo commented on Nintendo Renews Patent On Multi-Platform Game ...:


It can be safe to say that over 95% of people who download emulators also download illegal ROMs. So while emulators aren't illegal they are almost always used for playing illegal ROMs. Don't give me the ohhh they can be used to make new games crap. It is obvious these are just cheap bastards that want classic games for free.



SethNintendo commented on Review: Snake Den (Wii U eShop):

Tired of all these crap indie games on Wii U eshop. Nintendo needs to up their standards more. Sure they shouldn't go to the Wiiware extremes in trying for quality control but there needs to be something. There are a decent amount of indie gems on Wii U eshop but they are starting to get buried in crap.



SethNintendo commented on Nintendo 64x64: Turok: Rage Wars:

I can see someone who had no friends to play with giving the game a 5. I had a lot of fun with this game from what I remember and would give this game at least a 7.



SethNintendo commented on Talking Point: History Shows Us That Nintendo'...:

Like a bunch of other people... I believe their next system will be a combo/fusion. It will combine their hand held and home console system into one (or at least the freaking eshops will support cross buy purchases for VC/indie games). They might go with 2 separate systems again but imagine a combo system which they wouldn't have to split up teams. Nintendo could line up a game every month and wouldn't need any 3rd party support but I'm sure they would follow if the sales were good enough. Heck, they can barely muster decent 3rd party support on the 3DS and that is the highest selling system this generation.



SethNintendo commented on Project CARS Wii U Delay Was To Ensure It's As...:


"PS4 and X1 owners spend more money on games."

This statement is completely false.

Wii U total software sales = 28.47
PS4 total software sales = 25.93
X1 total software sales = 16.98

Granted these are VGC numbers so not completely accurate and you have digital sales (which all systems have) not accounted for but it it is still the most semi accurate information we can go by. Try not to state false information in your posts or you will be called out on it.

Tie ratio is Wii U = 4.02 ; X1 = 3.3 ; PS4 = 2.58

So who buys more games? Wii U owners



SethNintendo commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

Perhaps if they want the best chance of sales then they should release the game before Black Friday. If they release the game after Black Friday then they have no excuse for lack of sales (because they missed the biggest sales period) even though they are releasing them game months later than other versions.



SethNintendo commented on Nintendo Of America Celebrates Bayonetta 2 Wit...:

Won't ever get a twitter account nor instagram, linkedin, etc (had a facebook but deleted it a few years back)... Screw any sweepstakes that requires a "social network" unless it is the only "social network" that I belong to (Miiverse).

Like others have said before me... This should have been on Miiverse or Club Nintendo.
