SetupDisk commented on GameStop President Says "Don't Bet Against Nin...:

Well right now I have a Wii U and PS3 hooked up. I have a 3DS as well. My nephew who comes over once a week has a Wii U, Xbox 360 and a 3DS.

If he only had a 360 and I only had a PS3, a lot of gamers only own one system, the only games that could have some interaction like that are Skylanders/Disney.

But the thing is even if we liked those games, it might be a cool the first time but we like too many games and we would just be playing some local mulitplayer in some other game the next time anyway.

That's why I never got any of my nieces or nephews Skylander/Disney. Hell even the drums/guitars I got them were used in a series but the whole series was just the same game and pretty soon they were put out of the way.

If I buy them some Amiibo though, we can play different games each week and still use them. We aren't boxed into one option. We could all play games that we enjoy. That's why I would have no problem getting all them some figures they wanted the most.

Your point about retail space is right, but space doesn't effect sales that much in retail at least in electronics. You can have items with 10 faces sitting there for weeks and items with 2 facings that have to be replenished every day because they sell so well. The ratio doesn't equate to retail space = more sales.

The user base for every system is of course going to be larger. But it's a combination of Wii U/3DS not just 8 million. It's not going to Skylanders big but it doesn't have to be near that big to be a success, especially if it has a higher attachment rate.



SetupDisk commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

It's Mario driving a Benz. How the hell can people not see the awesome in that? Doesn't make me want to buy one even if I did have the money. I have to wonder of all the people getting offended by this how many could afford to go and get a benz right now because they saw it in a game?



SetupDisk commented on GameStop President Says "Don't Bet Against Nin...:

You have kids so maybe that is a plus but if you play mostly online or have buds that don't play skylanders/infinity(plus myself to begin with) that cross system doesn't mean squat.

This isn't just being aimed at kids(though they are the primary market). It's a Mario figure! Sweet, it's Samus. Everyone I know that games would like to buy at least one of them. Even if they don't have a Wii U or 3DS yet or never plan to get one.

It can be something like Smash, Kart, Zelda, etc mixed in, that's a whole lot more variety in that case for a lot of people and their kids.

This is working with a lot of Nintendo games, I know I will buy it. I know other older gamers will buy it for themselves and not just their kids. I know I would never buy figures to play one series. Neat it plays on all these other systems which is a plus but crap it's the same game.



SetupDisk commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

Damn Nintendo! How many over sexualisation examples in characters are in this fighting game?
Captain Falcon!
Snake! Oh wait he won't be back.

Oh yeah as I have heard before from some lovely people before posting here making a male character out of solid muscle or in general hot is not the same thing because they take three paragraphs to say "CAUSE it different that why1". It's even more sad that I knew this was coming when I saw the article about the new Samus outfit. You know the one that covers more skin than 90% of two piece swimsuits. Christ.

Strange thing, even without breast jobs some women naturally have much larger breasts than that. Crazy!

I know you like to have talking points about serious gaming issues but if this is a serious gaming issue in 2014 for Nintendo no wonder some people can look at Nintendo and say it's "kiddy'. It's not but then again Samus isn't overbearing with sex here either.



SetupDisk commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

It makes perfect sense. I bought basically all of Ubisofts Wii U games except Just Dance, Raving Rabbids, that crappy Marvel game and I think there was also maybe a one more that was just about shovelware. I enjoyed them all but I am in a small minority.

Some of those games have sold in the low thousands. I wish Nintendo would buy the rights to ZombiU and get Retro to make a sequel. That would be mindblowing.



SetupDisk commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:

Why would you care if a person dies if you didn't know them? If you did you would be destroyed minute after minute as so any people die. You can try to do something to stop some situations that are preventable. I volunteer and donate so I know I am making some difference.

If I hear about someone I don't know dying of old age well fine that's life. If I hear about someone killing a baby I might be enraged about the death or the sentence but I don't go through all the stages of loss.

If Nintendo does decide to do this it is not valuing his life over others. It is recognizing someone they have worked with in the past. Someone whose death has affected more people. Someone whose death has helped expose the misconceptions about depression and mental health that are still out there. Someone whose death has affected more people. It doesn't make his life more valuable, it just means more people have to heal from the loss.



SetupDisk commented on Art: Controller Evolution Photo Series Hammers...:

@Damo Maybe you should mention in the article that the dates are when he first played the systems. Otherwise you are going to lots of the years are wrong posts followed by an equal amount of replies stating what the dates actually are.

Then again you will still have people who just look at the headline and pics commenting.



SetupDisk commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

Maybe they realized Nintendo fans would have one or two versions of this already? I see no reason to buy it again for PS3 unless it goes on flash sale. That or they fixed invisible mode having to have the bomb guy if you unlocked them in that order. Or some awesome Jill fan service. Actually it would probably take all three.



SetupDisk commented on Review: Wooden Sen'SeY (Wii U eShop):

The only problem I have with it as mentioned in the review is the analogue only controls for movement. Maybe if it sells well they might patch it for use of the D-pad?



SetupDisk commented on Wii U Reference Discovered In Call of Duty: Ad...:

I will, the only other system I have that plays it is PS3 and that controller sucks for FPS. As for the probably over 100 bucks in DLC I don't really care enough to invest in any of that.

IF they do release it I hope it does get released on the Eshop this time though.



SetupDisk commented on Review: Strike Force Foxx (3DS eShop):

Yes using your memory is good. But I have played so many games over the years I will think of an awesome song or stage or ending and have no idea form what it was.

I youtubed it though and I remembered the graphics just like they were.



SetupDisk commented on Review: Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (Wii ...:

I used to beat this all the time as a kid. Got it on the plain wii vc(Wii U upgrade as well) and get my ass kicked all over the place. I hate how all the "hardcore" games since the introduction of 3D games and those awesome polygons have ruined the skills I had as a kid.

If I keep with it I will get good at it again. Same with Punch Out. I used to pound the crap out of Mik..... Mr. Dream but I haven't even gotten to him yet on the vc. My refresh rate is fine on my TV so it's not that.
