zeldagaymer93 commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

@Gorlokk The Xbox One bundle was only $330 this weekend and the PS4 bundle was $400. Some people don't really have a preference of which console they get since they are both powerful and play pretty much the same games give or take a few exclusives. So clearly the Xbox One will sell more.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Sales: D
First party games currently on the market: B
Third party games: F
Indie games: C-
Power of system: B-
Online capabilities: C+

I'd say a C- is a fair score. Nintendo really needs to do something about their marketing still. They need to convince parents why they should buy their kids a Wii U. Most families I know have a Wii and tablet/phone games.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Banjo-Kazooie:

This is literally my favorite video game of all time. I even bought a 360 before the next Banjo came out just so I knew I could play it when it did. Boy was Nuts and Bolts a disappointment. I know not to fall for that trick again.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

There is way too much hate on this thread. The only last-gen console I owned was a Wii and this generation I have a Wii U AND a PS4. I have to say that I like some of these remastered games because I never got the chance to play them on an older console. Clearly Sony has done their research and they know that these games will sell. So well done, Sony.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Video: Nintendo Unleashes Its Official E3 2014...:

Right after the Digital Event I was a little disappointed. I thought it was just an okay/good showing. However, the Treehouse live streaming and the Smash Invitational really helped to hit it out of the park this year. I love Nintendo but I usually think Sony or Microsoft "wins" the conference, but this year I honestly think that Nintendo is the champion. It's so great to see them trying this hard to please the consumers!

Long live Nintendo.

They have set many release windows and dates before so I'm not going to believe it until I can actually download it! I don't mind when it takes awhile for a game to be developed but you can't set a date then a week before say "Never mind!"

zeldagaymer93 commented on Review: Ittle Dew (Wii U eShop):

It's really sad to see people hating on the game before even playing it. I have been having a blast so far! And yes there are some bugs here and there but honestly it doesn't happen that much or they are so small that you can barely even notice they are there. If you're on the fence it's definitely worth the $10.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

@DimetriWarrior I know you mean well but I just have to say:

You said since the way it's rated, it's probably a good idea to leave out same-sex marriages? So if a male and female start a life together, get married, and have children that can go into an E rated game. But if a male/male or female/female start a life, get married, and raise children together then it should be rated what? R?

What about the children that have same-sex parents that play this game? What is it telling them? That their parents are glitches? And since some parents aren't mature enough to handle reality then you have to leave gay couples out?

zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

I'm glad they finally explained themselves a little better but it's still not an excuse to leave out same-sex marriage. Just like in real life, if you don't like gay marriage then don't get gay married. In a simulation game like this why would I want to get married to a female if I am gay? I'm not going to buy it. But yes, it's good that they cleared the air of some of those issues.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

@rastamadeus The point is most of the games are coming to PS4/Xbone (and yes a few to PS3/360) but none of them are coming to Wii U or Wii. Yeah Nintendo has a few really good exclusives coming out this year. But it's not enough to win people over. And the fact that PS4 sales have almost caught up to Wii U shows that.

And I own a Wii U and PS4. So I can tell you the Wii U is pretty barren.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

@Assassinated Some of your points are a little harsh and exaggerated but for the most part I agree with you. I have been defending Nintendo and the Wii U for so long now but after yesterdays Direct and looking at the 2014 Wii U line up compared to PS4... It's really sad that Nintendo didn't surprise us with something. Most of the Direct was focused on the 3DS which isn't a smart business decision since the 3DS is already selling and already has many great games.

@rastamadeus Not including indies the Wii U has Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, Smash, X, Bayonetta, Watch Dogs, and Hyrule Warriors slated to release this year.

Playstation 4 has Watch Dogs, Infamous, Drive Club, The Witcher 3, Game of Thrones Telltale, The Order 1886, Metal Gear Solid 5, Deep Down, Dying Light, Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor and maybe Uncharted. So far... To say Wii U has a stronger lineup is hilarious.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

It's really sad that the first Nintendo Direct of 2013 brought us huge new announcements and the first one of 2014 brought nothing exciting to the table. Their main focus is on the 3DS which isn't a smart business move since the 3DS is having no problems selling. The amount of games coming to PS4/Xbone in 2014 compared to Wii U is such a huge gap. Come on Nintendo... I defended you the first year the console was out but now it's just sad.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

I have owned a Wii U for over a year now and while I do enjoy the GamePad from time to time, Nintendo clearly doesn't know what else to do with it. The common consumers don't know what to do with it. And third party game developers don't know how to creatively use it. Ditch it and move on.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Download: 12th December (North America):

They teased Super Mario Bros 3 at the end of Summer and it's STILL not here. I don't get what's taking so long. And if they can release A Link to the Past in Europe then they can release it in NA.

I really don't get Nintendo sometimes. So many people are willing to buy those two games and it will cost them very little.

zeldagaymer93 commented on Super Mario 3D World Struggles Against PS4 Tit...:

I remember when a lot of users got mad at me for saying Wii U is only going to sell 25-30 million units in its lifespan. And that's actually an optimistic number. "Just wait until September-December! The Wii U software and hardware sales will kill the competition!" The games aren't selling because a lot of people sadly don't want a Wii U. Even a lot of Nintendo fans don't have a Wii U. I was optimistic but I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo announced a new console in a couple years to play catchup and do a complete rebranding.

zeldagaymer93 commented on DFC Intelligence Lowers Wii U Lifetime Sales F...:

@8thGenConsoles Please show me where your figures are from that shows the Wii U has sold more than 4 million. Most people I know either don't know what a Wii U is or have 0 interest in one.

You'll be biting your tongue when sales for Wii U in a year will be hovering around 8 million still.

EDIT: And the Wii U sold less than 500,000 on launch weekend worldwide. PS4 isn't even released outside North America and those were day 1 sales (not weekend sales).

zeldagaymer93 commented on DFC Intelligence Lowers Wii U Lifetime Sales F...:

@CaviarMeths PS4 figures are very relevant. It shows that there is very high demand for PS4s and not Wii Us. The PS4 has already sold more than 1/4 of what Wii U has acheived and that's based on a one day North American figure...The Wii U has been out for a year. So yeah, you can compare them to see what the market wants.

zeldagaymer93 commented on DFC Intelligence Lowers Wii U Lifetime Sales F...:

@rjejr I'm a realist, not a fanboy. I love Nintendo and I love my Wii U but coming from someone in the Accounting and Marketing world, there is no way the system is going to sell more than 30 million tops.

Parents are telling their kids "You already have a console that can play Mario, Zelda, and Mario Kart" and don't see the need for Wii U. Wii Sports Club isn't going to sell systems... Those same people that loved Wii Sports won't care that the graphics were updated, new motion controls, and in HD. They aren't going to spend $300 for that when they essentially already have it for a console they own.

Yes, 3D World, Zelda U, Brawl, and Mario Kart are all going to help the system sell. But not above 30mil. Times are changing and Nintendo needs to think of something.
