XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

@Caryslan Well the last Ace Attorney game is on sale. So if you don't want to pay full price for the new old, old one is on sale. But I'm sure its not on sale enough or something like that. Other option is get a WiiU... that's where you want to play Smash in the end.

XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

There are so many good to great titles that came out today on both WiiU and 3DS, plus stuff on sale from Capcom that is quality. If you are picking Nothing for Me this Week, I sure hope its because you are strapped for cash.

XCWarrior commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

Nintendo appears to be taking a different route with DLC than most companies. I get annoyed there is so much DLC for games that see yearly releases (COD, AssCreed, Battlefield, etc etc).

I don't think we are getting another MK on WiiU, so I guess the more tracks the better, but I have stated many times over the years on here I hate paid DLC. I love Mario Golf, 50+ hours in, but still haven't even considered buying the DLC.

16 tracks for $11 is tempting... (the characters I can take or leave, especially with ANOTHER Mario and ANOTHER Peach), but I won't say yes I'll buy it yet.

@DJKeens You are dead on sir. And when you go into Gamestop, they are always shocked if you are there to buy something Nintendo related. I have 6 or 7 Gamestops in my area, there's like 1 guy there who is actually happy to see you are buying Nintendo. The rest suggested "upgrading" to a PS4/Xboner.

"I would also not sell Amiibo short" - AKA Gamestop to sell Amiibos for 2x the amount any other retailer will.

In all seriousness, I wonder if Gamestop realizes Nintendo is the only company left who actually likes physical releases. Sony and Microsoft are certainly making more efforts to go digital to end used gaming.

XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (North America):

For curious games on the games on sale:
Nano Assault is a lot of fun if you like SCHMUPS, its not bullet hell by any means.

Abyss is a quick fun. Takes some patience to learn the controls, but I really enjoyed it.

World Conqueror 3D I have been having fun with b/c I enjoy the game Risk, so Euro Conqueror 3D might be up your alley if you like Risk.

Like how there is some solid VC love again this week, and I already read one review giving Demon King Box a 9/10. Will wait for NLife review as well, but that looks like it might be a steal of an RPG for $4.

Flexible pricing would be nice to see. Sure, some NES games are worth $5, like the ones mentioned in the aritcle.

But simple games like Donkey Kong and Baseball and what not either only have a few levels or one quick, basic mode should be $3. I don't think you need to go below that. Enterting $1-2 territory is a risky proposition, but $3 to rebuy a game I bought years ago AGAIN seems just about right.

XCWarrior commented on Wii U Sales Continue to Rise with the Release ...:

69k is a nice start for a week. Hopefully there will be word of mouth and it will sell well for a couple of months over there.

In America, it's going to need to pull 300k first month at least, and UK at least 100k first month to really start considering it a success story.

XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Confirms Loads of "Veteran Fighters" ...:

Europe getting more fun sales. I would love to have the Pokemon Rumble U sale here in America. $18 is ridiculous, but after playing the 3DS game, it's a good time killer worth about $10. Hope the Europeans take advantage of this sale.

XCWarrior commented on Interview: Dan Adelman on the Indie Scene, the...:

"There is a surprisingly large number of self-described gamers who have never tried an indie game. If we can get more players to expand their expectations of what a game is and should be, I think the demand could catch up with supply and grow the pie enough so that more games can be successful."

This is a major problem, and it makes no sense. Gamers really need to expand their horizons, and Nintendo fans at times are the worst (other times they are the best based on some indy dev comments).

I think they should stop calling them Indy games. Just say new/smaller studio. Or better yet, just call them "Approachable Studio Renegade Kid, Yacht Club Games, etc." B/c that's what they really area, unlike the a** hats at EA, Ubisoft, Activision - Indy devs are APPROACHABLE. Which I love (and why people need to stop sending them death threats b/c they announce a game you don't like, i.e. Spikey Walls by RCMADIAX)

XCWarrior commented on Brinstar Confirmed as Classic Stage for Smash ...:

It's about time Nintendo gave owners of a XB1 and PS4 a reason to buy a WiiU, and no it wasn't the return of the Brinstar change.

This Samus outfit honestly should be the cover of both games. Maybe Mario and Link in the background. Studies of Tomb Raider games show that is what sells.

XCWarrior commented on Talking Point: The Pokémon Trading Card Game ...:

This is a very bad move for Nintendo. So your physical trading cards... what becomes of them?

And what are you going to do at tournaments that you hold? Are you going to have a physical deck take on a digital deck? Have 2 separate tourneys?

And then, why just the iPad? Android has become the market leader, Apple is going by the wayside when it comes to tablets. Just a curious move which I think Nintendo is going to see little profit from.

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

Whatever Ubisoft. Make a good game, it will sell.

I expect Watch Dogs on WiiU to sell less than 10K worldwide. Possibly less than 5k worldwide. It's not like the game received great reviews from gamers.... review sites were paid to give it the 8s it got. 6s from actual players tells you a lot more about what its like.

XCWarrior commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

It's nothing more than a brilliant PR tactic.

"Hey Sony and Xbox fanboys, we hate Nintendo. Let's make another game Nintendo fanboys can't play. GIVE US MONEY!"

That's basically what they are doing, fueling fanboy hype for sales. So kudos to them for thinking of the idea. In the end, it's going to be a POS game.

Eshop has kept things hopping. MK8 came out for summer. Just had Wii Sports Club be released, and let's be honest 80% of WiiU owners have no clue that is available digitally or that the Internet exists and that their system can in fact go on it and download games digitally.

XCWarrior commented on These Awesome Articulated Nintendo Figures Are...:

This is at least great marketing by Nintendo. LIke it or not, for them to be successful, they need to appeal to the younger audiences. This get their characters in the hands of young children so they know their characters and then want to play their games.

My 17-month-old son is looking forward to owning all of these. Yes, my son is...

XCWarrior commented on Review: Steel Empire (3DS eShop):

@Spoony_Tech @midnafanboy @ferrers405 Just going to echo what these 3 guys said. Glad it's good, but $30?

And here in lies the problem with mobile. Download games for $1! Yay... (few years down the road)... what, you want us to pay more than $1 for something?

Like yeah I don't know what to think, but glad it's at least a well made game if it's going to cost that much.

XCWarrior commented on Shovel Knight is Burying Sales Expectations:

If they making money on the game, they shouldn't need a kickstarter for the sequel. Use the money you made to fund the sequel.

You don't want to go to the well on that kind of thing over and over, the well will dry up.

But good to hear it's selling well, I"m going to pick it up eventually. Backlog of just eshpo games is bad right now.

XCWarrior commented on The Man Responsible For Reviving Nintendo's Re...:

There's so much behind the scenes arguing between Adelman and Nintendo of America that we'll never know exactly why this happened. But considering he quit, he probably couldn't stand something that's been going on.

Not sure who is to blame for some of the shoddy eshop titles we've seen in past months, why they aren't getting a bit more testing before being released, but maybe that has something to do with it?

Either way, I'm sure he'll be happier not working at Nintendo anymore. He wouldn't have quit otherwise.

I wish they would do this with other board games besides Monopoly. I already have 3 editions of Monopoly (Basic, ESPN, Nintendo). I don't need a 4th. Link could have been a good clone for like Risk, only with a different board layout.

XCWarrior commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:

One of the options for the third question should be, "I'm still buying it, but now I'm waiting for a sale on the game."

The game lost a ton of value without online co-op. If a game doesn't have online co-op, it has way less replay value. No need to get it day 1. So I'll be waiting for a sale. Bad move, Nintendo.

I like owning games physical, so I'm glad Nintendo is doing this.

I own physical versionf of New Super Luigi Bros. and DuckTales Remsatered.

Plan to pick up physical version of Wii Sports Club and NES Remix.

If people want to go spend an extra $100 on an external hard drive and tie all of your games to your system, go ahead. I like being able to see what I own and I'm not uber lazy to the point I won't get off the coach to change a disc.

XCWarrior commented on Gearbox Attempts To Extract Itself From Aliens...:

It's too bad there aren't some real people suing and not some poor gamer(s) who can't afford a good lawyer.

There should be some decision made that will not allow game companies to show CGI, non-real gameplay footage to try and get people hyped up. It's misleading and misrepresents what the real product is. AKA lying to the consumer. I doubt most judges can figure that out, but if one could... well we maybe stop seeing so many misleading trailers at E3.

XCWarrior commented on One Classic Mega Man Game Is Coming to Wii U E...:

They should just rename the WiiU virtual concole to the "Classic Mario and Mega Man library."

Not that this is a bad thing, but we don't get a lot of variety. I'm expecting at least 1 if not both of the other Network games, and then just more of the X series.

Looks impressive. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is #1 on my game wish list, has been since the day it was announced in Japan. I really wish we could get a date instead of Early 2015. I'm hoping for January, would be a good idea during the gaming dead period, it would have everyone's full attention.

@russellohh Makes more sense, but still most people don't have that kid of money. I've been platinum all but 1 year... but man some of their club nintendo offerings are very passable... and they repeat as well. But to each their own. But again, if there were tons of people like you, Nintendo would be back swimming in their gold coins again like they were in the Wii/DS days.

@bboy2970 WHY do you own so many 3DSs? There are stick covers you could buy for a 3DS instead of just buying all of those. Imagine all of the games you could have bought instead, lol. But I guess if you have money to burn (or credit cads to increase your debt)... I guess go for it.
