Wolfgabe commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

@BlueBlurIxM For businesses especially video game companies Winter typically begins late November mainly to coincide with the start of the Christmas shopping season. By releasing the 3DS version first that basically frees up resources for the Wii U version. You basically are encouraged to buy both due to the different stages and content

Why does it always have to be doom and gloom? UK is practically nothing without the rest of Europe anyway and @Peach64 Nintendo has noted an increase in digital sales on their systems. I don't understand why UK doesn't give Nintendo more love though?

Wolfgabe commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

First off why would you expect Nintendo to pour a lot of marketing dollars in to a 5 month old port? I can see several reasons why NFS MW U bombed
Overpriced 60 dollars is just too much for a 5 month old port
Not supported well enough
Bad timing When the game came out EA was not exactly on the best of terms with Wii U owners.

He also seems kind of oblivious to the fact that indies can self publish on Wii U

Wolfgabe commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

Geez what a duckbag. Sounds more like he can't come up with a good use for the gamepad so he just trashes it. Off TV play is a big enough plus for me and he obviously fails to see all the other control options available
Please watch the profanity — TBD

Wolfgabe commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

This hardly makes sense considering that Wii U got the last two Batman games and is getting Blackgate HD edition as well. WB should just let WB Montreal handle a Wii U version. They did a solid job on Arkham City and Origins Wii U version since from what I hear it was the least buggy and had the most steady framerate. They honestly should if they want to remain in good graces with the Wii U community

Wolfgabe commented on Airtight Games Feels That Murdered: Soul Suspe...:

I find his excuse pretty backwards logic. A game does not necessarily need to be built from the ground up for the system to be good. ACIV, ME3, and Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed are good examples of this. My other problem is what exactly does not fit? The controls? the story? the gameplay? The install base argument is rubbish anyway if that logic were true 3DS would be getting support left and right

Wolfgabe commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

I don't understand why people are getting their panties in a bunch so much. Nintendo WiFi has been around for over 10 years. Nintendo probably wants to encourage Wii owners to upgrade since Mario Kart 8 is coming out very shortly. I am not really gonna miss it anyway considering how Wii's online was such a clusterf***k

Those of you getting worked up over 3DS sales remember this is January which comes right after the Christmas rush and is typically a dead zone in terms of new releases. PS4 and X1 look like they had a pretty significant drop off as well. As for Wii U I want to see world wide sales

Wolfgabe commented on Dragon Quest Monsters 2 Storms to the Top of t...:

@8bitforever Keep dreaming. PS Vita still has a relatively long way to go before it ever has a chance of passing 3DS. As for PS4 look at the launch lineup. Most of those games don't even appeal to the Japanese audience. The PS Vita's fate was sealed when it Monster Hunter jumped over to 3DS

Wolfgabe commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

Sometimes I think Nintendolife has been way too heavy on the negativity lately.

"The Wii U is a system for exclusive, different experiences mostly from Nintendo and, in some instances, from allies, partners and third-parties. It won't deliver all of the multi-platform blockbusters with enormous marketing budgets — it just won't." In a way both yes and no We will likely still see games like COD. The third parties are to blame as well for giving us half donkeyed versions and generally treating us like a bunch of fools

Wolfgabe commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

First off I don't think every third party publisher will just walk away. Ubisoft is not nearly as stupid as EA. They know that abandoning Nintendo outright would just damage their relationship further. @Peach64 You fail take into account how much does it cost to port a game to Wii U. from what I understand it costs 1 million to port which is ridiculously cheap by today's standards. A publisher usually receives 25 dollars per game sold so if I were to multiply that by 100,000 I would have a profit of 2,500,000. Its not unreasonable to believe that Wii U versions of multiplats must have a lower break even point

Wolfgabe commented on Just 2% of Ubisoft's Q3 Sales Were for Wii U:

@ThumperUK You can't blame Nintendo for all of it. Yes their marketing could have been better but its not really their job to sell third party games usually that responsibility falls on the publisher. http://playeressence.com/new-development-studio-ae-games-slams-ubisoft-ea-and-other-3rd-parties-over-treatment-of-the-wii-u-its-customers/. Read this it explains everything perfectly. Developers are not building consumer confidence well with crap they pull like this and that translates into poor sales. And Nintendo has been spending more on marketing recently

Wolfgabe commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

Why are people taking this BS rumor as truth? This game is too far along in development for Ubisoft to just pull the plug on the Wii U version. There is no way they would pull a stunt like that. Not with the PR nightmare that would likely ensue. It was more than likely a mistake as nearly everywhere else you can still pre order

Wolfgabe commented on Nintendo Was Dead To Us Very Quickly, States E...:

@Slapshot Its really stupid of EA to compare themselves to Activision. They say Activision only does franchises that are big business and don't make kids games yet Skylanders is a kids franchise that usually does best on Nintendo systems. Another thing is Activison has been pretty decent supporting Wii U while EA has not even tried. Best games of this past year huh. I am guessing you have never heard of NBA Live or the Sim City debacle

Wolfgabe commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

@jayclayx First off Nintendo mainly sees themselves as pursuing a different audience than Sony and Microsoft. Remember they are a business and don't expect them to spend time catering to your every demand. You only have to look at the sales of F Zero and Star Fox to see why Nintendo is reluctant to make new games for those franchises. Anyone could see they would never likely hit that 9 million goal

Wolfgabe commented on Talking Point: Claims of Wii U Third-Party Dev...:

Several Developers by now have already come out and called DF's article BS. Renegade Kid, Ping 1.5, Shin'en, Hideki Kamiya, and just recently Mike Dodger who worked on Resistance, Ratchet and Clank, and Skylanders. In my eyes those who are not afraid to speak out without masking their identities and have more legit experience are much higher on the credibility totem pole. Heck Ping 1.5 stated that most of those issues were from pre retail SDKs and Mike Dodger stated the info in that article was extremely outdated

Wolfgabe commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

Code optimised for the PowerPC processors found in the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 wasn't always a good fit for the Wii U CPU. This pretty much says what I and many others have been saying. Developers don't optimize their games well for Wii U and they just treat it like PS3 and 360 which doesn't work well

Wolfgabe commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

I figured you people are lapping up this flame bait hook line and sinker. We don't really know who is the developer that is talking and there are a couple of errors. It says Wii U CPU is made on a 55nm process but its actually 45. There was thread on this at WiiU Daily you should see Quinton McLeods post in it its quite informative

Wolfgabe commented on MercurySteam's New Next-Gen Title Isn't Coming...:

@Peach64 Its because articles like this have been done to death countless times and they just attract trolls, doom sayers, and gloom mongers. What drives people like me nuts is they say its not coming to Wii U but they don't give any specific reason why. There are a lot of Castlevania fans out there who are not too fond of LoS from what I hear. We don't even know who is publishing the game anyway

Wolfgabe commented on NPD Results Deliver a 3DS Milestone And Modest...:

Why are people making such doom over this.? Why can't we just wait until the official numbers come in rather than listening to some post from NeoGAF? I may look terrible but it is an improvement nevertheless. If Wii U were to say keep selling around 150k a week in December, that would be 600,000 in a month
