It's funny how lots of people defended Nintendo's mistakes, saying they didn't have to change (not members of this site). But now Iwata admits they have to change.

EDIT: Actually people are doing that on this site. Go figure

WiiUExposed commented on Talking Point: New Year Resolutions for Nintendo:

Great list. Just two things that weren't mentioned in this list:
1. Bring back older IPs- Metroid (2D and Prime), Starfox, F-Zero, etc
2. As others said, get the VC in top shape. Get the entire Wii VC library on there and more. Have some GCN and GBA games too.

Nintendo doesn't even make games that fully use it anymore. Nintendo Land is the one that really uses the Gamepad, and the line up of Wii U first party games don't use the Gamepad in anything big.

You don't have to differentiate yourself through hardware. You do it through software. Sega had no trouble at all being different from Nintendo in the 8 and 16 bit eras, and it wasn't because of controllers.

Having millions (hyperbole) of Japan exclusive events hurts the "worldview"

But anyway, pay to catch is a crutch for people who can't catch it themselves if the pokemon is available in game. If the pkmn isn't available in game, then that's a fault on Game Freak, it's annoying to see so many pokemon that you pretty much need to cheat to even obtain.

@wasf I have no idea why people think that doing a smart business move is somehow "fearing" another company.

This is how business works. If you can provide a similar experience with your own products, try to snag a piece of the competition's install base.

Just business man.

@Ernest_The_Crab The thing with Fire Emblem is that there were options: Casual and Classic to entice newcomers and keep challenge for veterans.

Most other Nintendo franchises wouldn't give that kind of option.

For example, 3D Marios have slowly gotten less and less complex since Galaxy. Galaxy 1+2 are still masterpieces, but by taking out huge hubworlds and levels to truly explore, they lost a whole lot of depth.

The game looks like crap when you compare it to games like Kid Icarus Uprising, Mario Kart 7, Resident Evil, Star Fox 64, etc.

Those games did not suffer from 3D-related slowdown, Kid Icarus being the best example due to its fast nature and great graphics.

WiiUExposed commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD...:

I wish that the models and textures were updated. The only major new graphical update was the lighting (which "major" is an understatement) (and high res isn't major). Looking at screenshots, I can tell that the models and textures are Gamecube quality. I wish they gave it the Ocarina of Time 3D graphical rehaul treatement rather than just lighting. Still picking it up though, probably Christmas.

WiiUExposed commented on Talking Point: With Calls for Nintendo to Foll...:

Nintendo has to have their hard-hitter games ready before the console release. They can't release consoles, have droughts, say "Please understand," and so on this many times. Iwata never learns from his launch mistakes (even though he sure as hell knows how to say "Please understand" due to them).

People say all that matters is the end result, but right now, this IS the end result. Their management needs to get with the times. Not the game devs (for the most part), they're fine. They just need to learn that they should have local AND online multiplayer for certain games (Mario 3D World). The "local is better" isn't an excuse, since if you don't have friends close by, you can't play local at all.

Their upper management lives in this bubble where they say "we don't care about the competition." To an extent, this is noble because they won't do shady business tactics that others will do. It also has big problems because they refuse to do what has been standard since 2005 (unified accounts, unified voice chat system, all in all, the standard online system). Miiverse is definitely a nice thing to have, but it's no replacement for the standard online system.

@wombatkidd It isn't about whether it was their first try or not. It's about them not taking hints from other companies' decisions. Do you also think it's okay for Nintendo to have trouble developing HD games 8 years after HD becoming mainstream just because it was "their first try"? They've had years to prepare for this, and they couldn't even get that right. I expect better from my favorite game devs.

It's better to have a limited amount of transfers for the 3DS and no transfer system at all for the Wii U than it is to be able to log into a different system?

And good job, using an example of a model made in 2009 as a reason to why it's okay to have a worse one in 2013.
