Yorumi commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

I'm actually kind of glad for this. Considering how little we've seen and how much it takes to make a game on this scale I was worried the game was being rushed. I know it could just be corporate speak but he did say they want to do more with the game than they originally imagined so if true that's a good thing.

@gcunit i'm getting it from them working on the deNA deal since 2010 and in 2011, 2013, and other times saying nintendo would absolutely not be making mobile games and that mobile games would damage their IPs. The article itself is basically saying the same thing, it's a shocking about-face. Parsing his words like that to trying to find any tiny, minute gap to declare it's ok we've found a way to determine they wern't untruthful feels more like damage control than anything.

What's done is done, but given their track record this gen of lying this gen it's getting old.

Yorumi commented on Sony Hardware Takes Charge of Japanese Charts ...:

@Ernest_The_Crab well historically years 2 and 3 are typically the best years for a console then it begins declining, if that holds true the ps4 should easily hit 70+mil by year 3, and really 80mil wouldn't be out of the question. Even with only a 5 year cycle it really should do around 100mil. Even xboxone, 10mil in year one, 40mil wouldn't be unreasonable by year 3, 50-60 by 5.

At that point you're basically only absent the casuals who bought the wii. Portable gaming is way down though, ds + psp was around 230mil, 3ds + vita probably won't break 100mil.

Yorumi commented on Sony Hardware Takes Charge of Japanese Charts ...:

This chart sadly illustrates nintendo's problem, sony themselves as a first party isn't really putting out any more content than nintendo. Look at the list it's all 3rd parties, they're keeping the content coming. The other problem it shows is the variety. Look at the list, ff-type-o, dragon quest, resident evil, battlefield, miecraft, digimon, phantasy star, yakuza. There's games for all kinds of varying preferences in gaming.

@Tsuzura yeah those two could make it scary, add SAO:LS as well, the asia version has an english translation but that still requires an import(thank you no region lock), so that would hurt sales, and considering how good HF did don't know why it hasn't been announced.

@Sir_JBizzle Well I'm only against it for the reasons you mention, it's not a question to me of whether they are spreading themselves too thin, they are, plain and simple. They can't adequately support the 3ds and wiiU right now and they're planning on added 2 more platforms to the mix. On top of that I fear the profit ratio on mobile will so eclipse anything they could dream of with console hardware that they'll end up focusing just on mobile.

@Sir_JBizzle about a year ago they said something along the lines of looking into ways to use mobile but not with games. They gave examples of like the miiverse app and stuff. I just don't like it cause it comes in a long line of broken promises, at least with the other ones you could argue nintendo was fully in control and spoke to hastily but this was just so blatant.

Yorumi commented on Satoru Iwata Defends Timing of DeNA Deal, Teas...:

@Sir_JBizzle well the thing is it doesn't need to be an about-face. The only reason that it is is because of specific things iwata and nintendo in general have been saying. They could have easily answered "I don't want to comment on that," or "we're looking at what mobile has to offer but we nothing planned for the immediate future." The biggest problem is they made all their firm no mobile comments while working on the deal. So it's not even like they changed their mind, they knew they were working on a deal all while publicly saying mobile is bad.

Sony gives out 6 games a month for $5, omg theft. DLC is bad, unless nintendo's doing it then it's good. Really I'd emplore you to actually try to see what else is out there, you don't have to hate everyone else just because you like another entity.

Ah so it's different because nintendo. So with sony if you have to pay a fee to access online(some games you don't need to) it's half a game, when nintendo locks content behind a $15 figure it's still a full game? Yep got it.

@JaxonH you really don't understand how the things work on the other systems.

Actually I'm kind of curious, if you only get half a game when you don't buy ps+ does that mean when nintendo locks content behind an amiibo you're getting half a game too?

@day I really hope it's not VR. Chance are very high that's just another fad like 3d, there are way to many problems with it. It only works with first person games to begin with. The other problem is myself and many other people, I think it's estimated at around 30% of people, get severe headaches when using the 3d on the 3ds, it's fairly likely VR is going to that and worse.

If it forced on the system it would reduce the amount of games that can be made and make it so 1/3 of their customers can't use the system at all.

@Quorthon Now admittedly I don't have a lot of kids around me to sample from but though kids play mobile I'm not that will translate into consoles. One problem nintendo faces is to kids sony/ms consoles are cool, all their friends are playing those systems so naturally they do too. I have two cousins that are now 12 and 9, and I see what they and their friends talk about gaming wise. They know about nintendo and have some interest in smash but they see sony/ms releasing all the cool games so they get those systems and obviously kids are going to have trouble getting more than one console unless they have a gamer parent.

These kids do play mobile games but more like the casuals, it's just for when they're traveling and don't have access to their console. We as adults all tend to look dubiously at some of the major 3rd parties and the games they make but those are the games kids are playing. Imagine how a 9-13 year old boy looks at the advertising. Here we have CoD showing a warzone, cool fighting action in the order, assassins jumping off buildings and ambushing people, then there's a family laughing on a couch. Not hard to see which one of those is far more appealing to a young boy.

@starmarx39 nintendo already said it's a 3rd pillar and not a replacement. The reason a lot of people think it's a replacement is because they said the same thing about the DS, it wasn't supposed to replace the gba it was supposed to be a 3rd pillar. As soon as it was successful they dumped the gba. So it makes you think that it'll basically be a war between the nx and whatever it's supposed to replace with the loser being dumped.

@TwilightAngel "That's just me some Nintendo fans could care less about third party games and that's sad."

That's where the problem lies though. If the console was powerful it wouldn't matter cause the games wouldn't sell. For the most part people who like 3rd party games have long since abandoned nintendo, they need those customers to get 3rd parties back, but need 3rd parties to get those customers back.

Most of this focuses on getting the big ones, the ubisofts, EAs, etc. A decent number of 3rd parties have carved out a smaller niche on these other consoles too. The vita arguably gets better 3rd party support than the 3ds despite the massive difference in install base. I think they could get some of these, promote them, license out IPs(like hyrule warriors) and things to start generating more value in the console. It's easy to look at the wiiU and say "eh there's a few games I want but I can live with out it." However the more games they get, and the more the promote them as cool games, the harder and harder it becomes to ignore the console.

Even if nintendo had to take a hit in the process it might be worth it in the longer. It woudln't fix things overnight but you get just a few people trickling in every generation, few mil here, few mil there and before you know it there's a sizeable market for a diversity of games on the hardware.

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@TwilightAngel I'm in a similar boat with the wiiU, it destroyed all my faith in nintendo as well. The interesting thing is I don't know that the power of the console is exactly a fault. Obviously technology advances but it doens't necessarily have to advance so fast. 3rd parties complain about power, but in reality if they believed they sell 2 mil copies of a game on the wiiU they'd be making it.

I think that's actually the biggest challenge nintendo faces, they need to find a way to get 3rd parties to want to make games for their systems.

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@TwilightAngel I'd honestly be fine with a discussion, even disagreement. What I hate is these people that make all these false accusations and hide behind the comfort of anonymity. Falsely accusing people is a pretty serious thing, and certainly shows a massive amount of disrespect for people. I would personally consider it a form of flaming, it's essentially insulting a person by attacking their character. That's why I take it so seriously, if we want to bemoan how bad the internet is, it's not bad because of opinions, it's bad because of things like that. Cleaning it up has to start somewhere, we are all capable of showing respect for others and not resorting to flames and personal attacks in posts.

@JaxonH just keep on lying and engaging in personal attacks. What you think I don't need access to all my dozens of spells in ff14 at a moments notice? I'm primarily a healer, I have to be prepared to counter spike damage at a moments notice, if everyone is taking damage and I don't choose my targets from the 9 on the list properly we wipe. I have to prioritize targets, which heal to use, what cooldown to use, all while all while finding small seconds of a map not covered in aoe.

You are so concerned about someone talking about a game you "think" hasn't played, even those you're wrong and provably lying when you say you know, but you havn't played these games. You're a lair and hypocrite.

Anyway I'm done derailing the topic sorry for that, I just wanted let him continue to show everyone who he is.

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH so now you admit you don't read my posts. I did in fact say I've played the game, several times. If you didn't spend all this time attacking me maybe you'd have seen that. I even mentioned another MH type game, which actually plays faster than MH, suppose you missed that too. But instead of addressing what I said you chose to spend comment after comment personally attacking me and continue to do so.

MH's UI is not at all complex and takes up very little screen space. I showed a much more complex UI, which I wonder if you even looked at now that I know you're not reading posts, and a comparison to MH to show how no it's not needed. I also pointed out how it's a lot of preference because despite how cluttered a MMO UI is, I would still prefer it on the screen because I want that information without taken my eyes off the battle lest I don't react fast enough to avoid the instant death coming my way. Let me say that again, I WANT the UI on the screen for any game because I don't want to have to take my eye off the action.

I also love when proven to have lied you make some excuse all while accusing others of lying, good job.

Yorumi

#26

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH And you're flat out wrong end of story. Here's the thing by your posts I can prove you are lying:

"You haven't played the game, and you know it. I know it, and we all know it."

That is unknowable with the information you have, period. Therefore saying you know it is a blatant lie. You are accusing me of what you yourself are acutally doing, provably I might add.

And on another note, answer me this for fun. How can you know there is nothing even similar to MH is you have not played literally every other game in existence? Furthermore how can you know you've played the game more than anyone else if you have likewise not monitored the behavior of everyone else?

So simply put you are the one making things up and stating falsehoods. I have no idea how much you play the game and I don't care because my opinion of the UI doesn't hinge on how much someone has played a game.

@Nintendobro they just came off years of losses. It takes a lot to get shareholders to fire a ceo. That's a huge deal and you have to convince potentially thousands of people. Overall he's so far been shrinking customer base. The wiiU is going to sell less than the gamecube and the 3ds is not likely to catch the gba.

Nearly all 3rd party support has been lost under his leadership. The n64 was a bit hit to 3rd party before his time but they were starting to return with the gc, today, there's virtually no one left.

It's been documented how he's been saying the same appologies over and over his entire time in the job. "we learned our lesson with the gc, we need to support the wii with more games." "we leanred our lesson with the ds we need to support the 3ds with more games." "we learned our lesson with the wii we need to support the wiiU with more games" And that's just one of them. We know he's been working on the mobile deal all while telling the world nintendo would never go mobile and that it would destroy their IPs. Heck this article itself it yet again another time he's said he's going to change the way people play games.

As far as nintendo making profits goes, I'm not beholden to nintendo, I don't care if they're making a profit if it's in oil futures. I care about nintendo insofar as they've supplied me with things I want. As soon as that stops for good I couldn't care less about them.

They can make a lot more money making cheap, exploitive free to play games, but I'd sure hate to see them destroy their pride in making high quality games just to chase profits at the total expense of everything else.

@Nintendobro I don't give others a free pass, but I also don't spend my time looking for absolutely every single last example of something I don't like about in the world and go complain about it. Part of the reason I complain about nintendo is because I used to love a lot of what they do, and still do enjoy some of the games. I still have an n64 hooked up, I still buy games for it, same with a gba(with this and 3ds I have all nintendo portables covered), and I'm probably going to buy an snes to replace the one I sold when I was a kid and stupid.

NIntendo used to have all kinds of creative games but then they gave up trying to compete and became stagnant. I didn't like the wii's motion controls but there will still a lot of amazing games on the wii. The wiiU, not so much, I love hyrule warriors, dying for xenoblade but so much has been safe sequels that lack all creativity. And this is coming from someone who readily admits I don't need the wheel reinvented to enjoy a game. There's little diversity of games on the system.

Aside from graphics hardly anything on the wiiU couldn't be done on the 3ds or wii. And that's not even getting into the problem that so many games are platformers. Where's my mario with things that cannot be done on other nintendo systems? Or animal crossing, fire emblem, kirby, metroid, or f-zero?

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@freaksloan look at the reverse, the only reason the wiiU sold anything at all is because there's a bunch of blind nintendo sheep. I don't believe that and I don't believe that applies to anyone who shares a different preference. There are certainly some people who blindly follow marketing but it doesn't apply as a generalization. If everyone is really just a bunch of blind sheep shouldn't the vita have done a lot better(and i love that console btw)?

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH you think there's never been an action combat game out there? You think you don't have to move around in a very precise manner in other games? You "know" I don't play because you think this is no game like monster hunter and that everyone in the world who does not share you opinion of the UI didn't play the game.

That is an ad hominem fallacy, you've been attacking me personally the whole time instead of the argument I'm making. I have presented evidence by posted screenshots of various UIs and how they cover the screen, including a game that plays even FASTER than MH. You are simply put stone dead WRONG about what games I have played. I have a heavy bowgun user in MH3U for wiiU who has completed all monsters.

Using ad hominem just shows the vacancy of the argument. There is absolutely no need to be attacking me personally all the time.

Yorumi

#32

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH I posted direct comparisons to the UI, it is laughable to suggest the UI is more complex than ff14. I've played the game plenty, I've also played a lot of other games, which I think you havn't based on comments. The first screenshot of another monster hunting game I posted was toukiden, it's actually a faster paced game than monster hunter. The UI in MH covers about 20% of the screen, in ff14 it's about 50-60% and you havn't even seen a raid leader's UI in an MMO.

Have you actually clicked on the screenshots? I enjoy monster hunter and monster hunter-like games a lot but monster hunter is just not the most complex game out there. It's fine you like the UI on the second screen, everyone has preferences, but MH being the most complex UI out there is not debatable at all.

@Bolt_Strike well yes but my point is not that the console wasn't innovated, it's that they don't really seem to care that much about it. If they were looking for innovation the success should have been repeatable to some degree. By that I mean if the wiiU sold at like 40% the rate of the wii then there would be a point to be made about innovation.

It's impossible to know really, I just think the whole innovation thing really hasn't proven to be repeatable in anyway.

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@Bolt_Strike " The DS and Wii lead to the formation of the casual market which thrives on the kinds of innovations Nintendo popularized."

I'm not so sure of that, they did flock to nintendo on the wii/ds era but they're all essentially gone now, mostly to the mobile market. There's not really any major innovation there, certainly nothing like the wii. It just seems like if the casuals are so into all this innovation at least some of them would have stuck around for the 3ds and wiiU.

@JaxonH You're making the assumption that I either havn't played monther hunter or that you've played more than me. I have no idea if that is or isn't true, I'm basing my arguments on having played MH, and MH like games, as well as many other games that have a complex UI. On top of that I've used actually screen shots to show complex UIs displaying way more information than MH needs to. You're the one who believes you know how much I've played various games and is saying you're right cause you know exactly how much I've played and determined you've played more. As though hours played in a game makes you right.

Direct comparison of the UI's:

Monster hunter is the most complex game?

@jaymacx Well epic yarn was last gen, I was talking about the wiiU mostly. That said it's not that I believe there's 0 creativity at nintendo it's just for as much as people praise their creativity there really isn't all that much of it there lately. I am actually on the side that says you don't have to reinvent the wheel all the time so not every game needs to be super innovative.

Yorumi

#35

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH you make vast assumptions about me because you cannot defend the statement with facts. I play MH a lot, and it doesn't need to display anywhere near as much information as any mmo. I havn't even gotten into custom UIs to add even more information to MMOs like dps meters, hate lists, and other such things. That screenshot is of single party content(it's ifrit hard mode) there is raid content for 24 man teams in that game. You think it's complex to display 4 health bars? They have to display 24(actually possibly 25 as scholars and summoners have pets).

Monster hunter is no where near as complex as an MMO, period.

Yorumi

#36

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@JaxonH if monster hunter requires significant screen space then it's just being used extremely inefficiently. Here's an example of ff14's UI, as an MMO it requires far more information to be displayed.
http://wildharted.com/web/ffxiv-hudscreen2.jpg

And honestly I prefer the UI on one screen cause then the information is immediately available to me. And before you say you there is a ton of movement in modern mmos so don't give me the action nature of monster hunter.

@Dr_Lugae how is nsmb, nslu, dkc:tf, 3dworld, pikmin 3, mk 8, and smash new and innovative? Why does a game suddenly not count because the developer isn't a billion dollar company. Doesn't that in and of itself acknowledge the point, everyone has to put all these qualifies in place to disqualify everyone who's doing innovation in games better.

How does it help nintendo to say essentially "if you disqualify everyone who's not ubisoft, activision, or EA then nintendo is the most innovative"? It sure seems that people care more about a game being made by nintendo than it actually being innovative.

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@Syrek24 I keep harping on this because this mindset is what is holding nintendo back. What major software innovation did nintendo have on the wiiU? People just keep saying this as though it's a tautology without any evidence. There are a lot of creative an innovative games out there and they arn't being made by nintendo. That's why nintendo is continually losing market share and facing irrelevance.

Everyone keeps saying nintendo games are so creative and so innovative, but everyone else is just looking at the emperor's new clothes. This generation they delivered some of the most uninspired, least creative games ever, and yet sits there like a bunch of yes men talking about how innovative they are.

They're losing market share because they arn't making creative games and instead are relying on a hardware gimmick they never use to sell consoles with the same games we've all played before.

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@Kaze_Memaryu That can be said about any game series though. Even CoD changes a few things each time. To me that's as bad as saying all games on sony/ms systems are just brown shooters. It's cherry picking at best. We can all point to two or three series that arn't that creative from iteration to iteration but we can do the same with nintendo. This is the company that selling millions of copies of nsmb, mk, smash, and pokemon.

If you want to compare the most creative games on the wiiU by nintendo to the most creative games by other studios on other consoles, hate to say it but the wiiU loses badly. People keep saying nintendo is so creative but that just convinces me they havn't even tried to find creative games on other systems. They look no farther than CoD and say "yep that's all of it, nothing better exists on these systems, nintendo wins."

Yorumi

Yorumi commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@AdanVC You should actually look into some of the "slightly less popular than CoD" games on other systems. The actual innovation in gameplay isn't coming from nintendo, they're making the same old games over and over. There are some really creative games out there that arn't seeing the light of day on nintendo consoles. I can't help but think nintendo largely feeds off people's ignorance of the game industry. They've been so sheltered on nintendo consoles they believe what nintendo tells them and don't think anyone else is making anything creative.

Just to add, OOT is about a 20-25 hour full clear. FF9 is 40+ story, and probably another 30 or so for optional content. FF7 likewise is around a 40 hour story with a lot of extra content. Getting KOTR and beating all the weapons should push you game time into the 60+ hour mark.

@Wolfman_Jack they were significantly bigger. The larger space also allowed for better textures, better models, better sound etc. An example of a massive game is DW7, there are about 5 or 6 short FMVs in the entire game it's still two discs and was absolutely massive in scale. The PS was able to get some PC ports like wing commander 3 and 4.

Don't get me wrong I still have a n64 hooked up and I play it, heck I still buy games for it. However, the cartridges were very very restrictive on the system.

Yorumi

#45

Yorumi commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:

@Wolfman_Jack the cartridges couldn't hold just a little less data, it was a LOT. The largest n64 carts were 50MBs, CD's are 700MB. I'm not sure exactly what a cart costs to produce but CDs cost like $0.05 to make. Take FF9 for example, the game is close to 2GB in size. It would have taken around 40 n64 carts to make that game. It seriously held back what developers were able to do with games at the time and it's why the system had so little 3rd party support. Likewise it's one of the primary reasons sony was able to dominate the market with their entry console.

@Beau_Skunk my advice see if you like the total game list by the time of e3, if you're satisfied with only that then go for it, otherwise I doubt there's going to be many more if any major games revealed after e3 this year.

@Syrek24 see this is what I love, you spent your entire post attacking me personally because you don't like that I called the games safe sequels. I even said in the post "None of this has any bearing on whether a game is fun or not" and "I'm dying to play xenoblade and zelda looks neat". In other words I don't have a problem with a game being a safe sequel or sticking to a formula. Minor shake ups and tweaks are fine because a truly new concept is a pretty rare thing.

Instead of answering what is new, innovative, and unique in these games you launch into personal attacks and tell me to get out. It's as though you're not allowed on a nintendo site if you see any value in the game industry outside of nintendo.

@aaronsullivan I don't get it I quoted it, he said all the times he's said they wouldn't make mobile games at all he actually meant they were planning to all along and waiting for the right time.

@Syrek24 "I've viewed the offerings on both the Xbox One and PS4 and I see absolutely no need to purchase either system due to none of them providing high quality software that isn't the same rehashed game we've seen over and over game."

This is what I don't get because nintendo's wiiU offerings have been entirely reshashed safe sequels and some of the least ambitious games ever. I ask this all the time but what is new and refreshing about nsmb/nslu, pikmin 3, dkc:tf, 3dworld, wwHD, smash, mk8, yoshi, and even going forward I'm dying to play xenoblade and zelda looks neat but again open world rpg and open world action adventure arn't anything new. Splatoon is probably the most innovative game they have right now but even that doesn't stray very far from the team based shooter formula.

None of this has any bearing on whether a game is fun or not but I'm just trying to understand the double standard. You're crucifying everyone not nintendo for doing exactly what nintendo has been doing for the entire life of the wiiU.

@Ogbert that's purely anecdotal evidence, and it's not like mobile gamers don't know consoles exist. It didn't work with the wii or ds I don't see how it works here. Do we really think someone is going to go out and buy a console for a few hundred dollars that just plays nintendo games cause they played some mobile game? I just don't see that happening.

They're taking development resources away from an already strained to the max resource pool in the hopes that a fickle casual market will once again return.

@Nintendobro well first of all saying you want a company to change, and listing specific ways which I've done before, does not mean I will be happy with absolutely any random change no matter what it is as long as it's change. Nintendo is diverting resources that could be used for improving their console games to making shallow mobile games as some sort of weird catch-22 advertising plan.

So they're diverting resources away from the things I do want, toward things I don't and you think I'm supposed to be happy just because it's change regardless of what type of change? Sure I'm going to wait and see how things develop over the next year or two but chances are pretty good we are now witnessing the death of the nintendo we all know and love. Why should I be happy with that just because it's change?
