Spectator commented on Zelda-Style Adventure Midora Runs Out Of Kicks...:

This person sounds like he's never made a game before. He would know better about how hard it is to finish creating a game, but then to say I wanted to add more. This person comes off with an ego drive, about what he wants, it became less about his vision once he started taking peoples money. He needs to check his ambition at the door and finish the game, if its remotely successful, make a game on a bigger scope, and ask for what real money is needed. If he can't finish this product that tarnishes his company, that is on him. I have seen projects change over time and deadlines missed, but this comes off as a severe mess up on what is needed to finish a solid product. I hope they at least finish the game and makeup for their mess ups to the kick-starter audience. That would at least help create some damage-control.

Spectator commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:

That's great for developers that want to get their games on Nintendo.This can only help the New 3ds when it comes to game availability on the e-shop, but whats going to sell the new 3ds other than hardware is the retail exclusives. If the New 3ds doesn't have a good amount of AAA 3d exclusives, having Unity work on it isn't going to matter.
Established Indie companies that use Unity may hesitate putting their game on the system unless its a port, the user base will remain small for a while until NIntendo pushes out even more exclusives. That being said it does open up the opportunity to get up and coming developers a foot in the door, and games that were missed on the 3ds to come to the new 3ds.

I would just be surprised to see some thing that is New, Exclusive, and High quality coming out of unity indie games, just (based on the current user base) and the (slightly upgraded New 3ds power). It doesn't mean it can't happen, but if NX is the next successor to possibly both systems, game companies could look at the New 3ds as a stop gap similar to the DSi, unless NIntendo reveals during the E3 that the NEW 3ds is going to get hooked up with (serious AAA software) for more than a year.

Spectator commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

Your absolutely right, NIntendo is stretched thin and they know it takes time to make great AAA game. If they only had any third party they would obviously be in a better position. I guess the hopes will come down to the second party companies(Retro, Platinum Games) but other than that we'll have to wait and see.

@Yorumi
I see where your coming from, but it would be nice to see if NIntendo has anything to show at E3 other than what we have known for the past year. I'm not thinking of it as a long term solution for Wii U because its more than halfway done. Its obvious this system was not built to last 8 plus years like their counter parts. That being said I am interested to see if the system goes out in the next 2 years, riding it out with a bang or a whimper, before NX comes in. E3 will help give a better indication on what Nintendo's plans are, I don't think they would pull a Sega Dreamcast with the Wii U when the Ps2 entered the market, that would really hurt their fanbase.

Spectator commented on Community Interview: Give Us Your Affordable S...:

I can only imagine the time and effort put into this game, from the concept down to the marketing. I commend the risk your taking with such an abstract idea from gameplay, to presentation. When this game is released whether the audience is open to originality or not, will you continue to make games as original as this game whether the sales bomb or meet expectations?

Will sales determine the future of your next games or will you end up taking a more conservative approach based on the market, whether it be in the idea, or scope of the game for the Wii U, or leave it all together?

@Quorthon

You are correct the shear number of exclusive coming out for XBO and PS4 looks great. That being said because Wii U is a year ahead in quality first party exclusives that have actually lived up to the hype, this has benefited Nintendo as a competitive system at the moment. I'm not implying that Sony and Xbo won't overtake Nintendo with knock out punches when it comes to games in the long term, I'm saying at this moment the games that have come out exclusively from these next gen systems have not lived up to the hype. I could continue to play Ps3 and Xbox 360 because I'm not given a software reason, not a hardware reason, but a software reason to buy these new systems because I'm still waiting for ......greatness from these game devs. People have bought these systems in hopes of what to expect, they are just waiting for the delivered goods.

Hopeully games like Bloodborn and so on will actually be as good as advertised, but when you factor possible delays and hyped games coming up short it just keeps Nintendo hanging around because Nintendo track record guarantees their game won't suck most of the time. The real question is what will Nintendo do when they run out of game ideas and have come up with something new after this year.

Spectator commented on Iwata Remains Positive on the Future of the Wi...:

If only nintendo could market their wii u better. The best thing going for them is that their first party exclusives games are making the wii u a must have in comparison to the Ps4 and Xbox first party exclusives, which are coming off as underwhelming or mediocre. Wii U may have it's strongest year if Sony and Microsoft continue to release games that can't live up to the next gen hype. I would expect this to change this year as more games come out, but at the moment it hasn't and that favors nintendo. Nintendo is winning the gameplay battle.

If not careful, could turn into a rush to the bottom, which could turn future quality downloadable games from 3rd party on the 3ds into simple cheap cash grab apps. This could make the 3ds no different from the phone apps store if not regulated.
