XCWarrior commented on Reminder: North American Club Nintendo Rewards...:

I turned in my coins last week for the last game I could afford. Sadly I'm like 10 coins away from a cheap 100 coin game.

It was nice while it lasted. Be interesting to see what the new promotion will be, and if it will be an improvement or not.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U):

@Sanicranfast It's a bit more UK-centric. But seeing as sales numbers show about 1,000 UK people own a 3DS and about 100 people own a WiiU, they still do lots of US news because like 10k of us bought a 3DS and 200 people bought a WiiU!



XCWarrior commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Producer Expla...:

@blackerst They waited like 5 years after Other M to try again. Makes sense, because MEtroid is still a known thing. ANd the way M: FF has been received, you'll expect to see another 5 year gap before the next Metriod.

Retro won't probably come out and say it, but they're probably not in the mood to do another Metroid game. Otherwise, they probalby would have by now.



XCWarrior commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

It's weird. Nintendo keeps making games, but Nintendo fans made it loud and clear after E3 they don't want new games, just rehashes.

Just stop video game production and make amiibo full term. At least until the end of the year. I don't think it will affect overall sales all that much, if WiiU sales numbers are any indicator.

(Obviously being sarcastic... to a point).



XCWarrior commented on Feature: Five Key Moments from Nintendo's E3:

E3 was just fine for Nintendo this year. Not great, but fine. Looking forward to Mario Maker, Star Fox, Xenoblade, got to play the Zelda 3DS game at Best Buy which is fun with friends. Fatal Frame, Yokai Watch, Rodea is coming... there's plenty of game to play people.

I know I'm in the super small minority on this, but $30 worth of Smash DLC was very sad to see. Thanks for the for free Miiverse stage... but I'll be skipping the other stuff.



XCWarrior commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

I have bought so many indy titles my hard drive is basically full, despite the fact I buy retail whenever I can. So sadly I can't download the 9 demos right now, since I need to find a cheap external hard drive to install in my WiiU.

Loading times and hard drive space... 2 huge negatives to the current generations.

But yes people, try out some indy games! Maybe Nintendo Life should do a story in the week about the best 3DS and WiiU eshop games that have come out in 2015 so far.

@blackerst When a game sells well, a company makes a sequel. When it doesn't meet expectations, they don't make a sequel. In the case of Metroid, after MP3 didn't do well, they hoped it was just bad luck, so they tried to go in a different direction with Other M. It didn't sell well. And that's why you didn't see a game for like 5 years.

You can also check VG charts for the sales numbers drop on Metroid games. But again, I got the now super rare Metroid Prime Wii Trilogy metal box set for $20 on clearance. Why? BECAUSE NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE BOUGHT IT.



XCWarrior commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Producer Expla...:

@link3710 But they didn't sell enough copies of Metroid. People think 1 million in sales is good. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't. RE6 sold 6 million copies, but the dev cost was so high, it was seen as a failure. The last few Metroid games have not hit sales target projections. And that's why they stopped making them for awhile. Same with Star Fox, same with Earthbound, same with Balloon Fight, Wii Music and anything else that was one and done.

Just because you bought them (I own the MP Trilogy too, I got it on CLEARANCE for $20 because NO ONE BOUGHT IT!) doesn't mean lots of other people did.



XCWarrior commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

@Evenmoresteven WiiU doesn't need a proper Animal Crossing game. I played the original on GCN, then didn't pick up another version of the game until 3DS. The changes from game to game are so minimal. And in fact the original AC is still the best, because it has like 20 VC titles you can acquire, which was my main motivation for playing it back in the day. And don't forget they got hammered for City Folk for being too samey. That was one of the games showcased in the debacle that was E3 2008. Basically, Nintendo needs to never show a AC game on a console ever again - it spells a doomed E3.

Until they can think of some good new ideas to do with AC, they don't need to make another one period.



XCWarrior commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

For anyone mad about the Animal Crossing Amiibo game...

STOP IT. You all begged for a game that used amiibo. Guess what? NINTENDO GAVE YOU A GAME THAT USES AMIIBO. And of course its not a new IP - outside of Splatoon, Nintendo gamers don't buy new IPs because you are all so darn stubborn and won't try new games and genres out.

After sleeping on it, E3 for Nintendo was just fine. Not awesome, but fine. Plenty of games coming out by year's end that I want - more than I have time for. So stop your whining, or go back and buy some of Nintendo's games that were already released on WiiU and 3DS and give them a shot. Or heck, BUY AN INDIE GAME. They are cheap and you might find yourself with some new fun you didn't expect.



XCWarrior commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Producer Expla...:

Game looks like the best Metroid game in a long time. People need to stop complaining. You didn't buy enough copies of MP 1,2,3 or Other M. So stop begging for Samus. She's sadly further proof MOST Of the time, female leads in games don't sell.



XCWarrior commented on New Nintendo 3DS XL Back On Top In Japan As Wi...:

@CaviarMeths Pokemon, change up the formula? Ha. I love the series, own a game from every gen but 3, but out of the last 3 installments (B/W 2, X/Y/, ORAS), the only one I got a game for was X/Y. The changes they make are usually cosmetic, maybe making the menus better. I'd love to see some real changes to gameplay, or making things more complex.

But every game is made with this thought - "So, we are going with 99% of the people who buy this have never played Pokemon before, right?"



XCWarrior commented on Video: No Matter How Annoyed You Are At Ninten...:

If you have nothing left to live for after a video game media event... well as @Ryu_Niiyama said, you have way bigger problems than what Nintendo is going to release in the next year.

This year wasn't the best E3, but at the end of the day, in the 2nd half of 2015 we get - Star Fox, Xenoblade, Mario Maker, FATAL FRAME 5 (YES THAT WAS GIVEN A RELEASED DATE), Yoshi, Zelda 3DS, Yokai Watch and some other 3DS games I'm currently forgetting.

And some people are going to buy those spin off games announced.



XCWarrior commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

It's called chaos control. They don't care what we think. If they cared what we think, we wouldn't be discussing a bunch of spin off titles and a Star Fox game that for some reason has no online, when it looked like they had finally joined the 21st century with Splatoon and even new Zelda title.

They are putting resources at NX. And that's OK. Just admit it already.



XCWarrior commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

I got Star Fox, so I'm rating the show good, but not great.

That being said, I hate 3-5 year dev cycles with this generation. Like I want Xenoblade, but I've been hearing about it for years now. We heard about Mario Maker last year. We already knew about most of which was shown.

As for new stuff:
Zelda: Triforce - hooray it has online, so it on my watch!
Mario vs Luigi RPG - Hey an RPG, so that's good
Animcal crossing thing - It's a thing, no thanks.
Amiibo... just stop
Metroid 3DS game - Intrigued

3DS lineup looking good. ALrady new about FE, but want that. Hyrule Warriors was leaked, but I'll pick up that version since it has all DLC from WiiU. B/c that's what DLC is folks, it's stuff that should have been in the game from the start.

So B-, but that grade is heavily helped by Star Fox.



XCWarrior commented on Rare Replay on Xbox One Will Include 30 Games,...:

Be interested to see how well this sells. I mean how many XBone owners are former NES SNES and N64 junkies? probably not a ton.

We live in a world where the "core gamer" says things like, "2D Sux" "Not 60 fps and non-1080 sux" and yada yada.

Don't think this is aimed at the right audience.
