zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Hoping That Splatoon Will Tempt Lapse...:

This is going to sell extremly well the first week it's out but I feel like most of those sales are only going to be from people who own a Wii U. There will be a small spike in Wii U sales but then I think it will return to normal.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Outlines Splatoon's Free Post-Launch ...:

I'm with everyone else saying that the game is clearly unfinished. However, they NEED at least one Summer game for the Wii U so they clearly could not have delayed this any longer. One ranked battle mode to start off with? Really Nintendo? This game looks incredible and has SO much potential but Nintendo is shooting themselves in the foot yet again.

Yes, these are free updates. But that's really nothing to be happy about since they should have been included day 1. Turf Wars and Splat Zones are only going to be exciting for so long...



zeldagaymer93 commented on Splatoon Global Testfire Confirmed For This We...:

Once again Nintendo trying to stay modern with online gaming but not doing a great job. Most betas/demos for online games usually let you play online a whole weekend (or at least a whole 24 hours). At least they are giving us something, I guess.

As for the ranked battles, I know that rainmaker won't be available until later. But is the only one available at launch splat zones? Or is that tower one also going to be available at launch? Even if it's just those two I feel like it will get boring just playing them over and over.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo and Universal Studios Announce Theme ...:

@IceClimbers It sells well but do many adults/kids recognize it? That's the big question. I think they are only going to do their super huge franchises that even 30-60 year old adults who aren't into gaming will still notice and smile.

1) Yes it does lend itself perfectly to an attraction. But most people that go to Universal will not have played F-Zero or even know what the hell it is.
2) I was scrolling through the comments quick and didn't catch the joke. Sorry.
3) See above.

Does anybody know what the N64 shader mode is? Does that make the game look like an N64 game? If so that is sweet! I agree the 1.2 million pound goal is kind of lame, but the 1.1 million goal for the N64 shader and DK style rap is incredible!



zeldagaymer93 commented on Video: Catch Up With the Xenoblade Chronicles ...:

So we saw everything we already know about? No release date (not even a closer window)? And no footage from the Western version? ... Nintendo what the hell are you doing? What was the point of this "direct"? You have been showing off this game since January of 2013... Stop showing us the same thing over and over again and just release it already!



zeldagaymer93 commented on Reminder: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Out Now for ...:

@crzysortagamer Please don't let that turn you away from the game. Like I said, even the first hour of the game was incredible and I am about 5 hours in and I think everything about the story, gameplay, universe is great. While the character models are horrendous and are a little distracting sometimes, I still think it's worth the play through.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

First off, I am very excited for this game and it looks amazing! I cannot wait for it come out!

However! I don't think it's going to really sell hardware. There will be a slight increase the week it comes out but that's probably it. And I can see the software sales being huge the week of release but then sharply drop after that. Nintendo has no idea how to market their products nowadays. They think that the whole world watches Nintendo Directs when in reality only the die hard fans do. Get a bigger advertising budget, Nintendo.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask N...:

I understand the idea of a limited edition. However, I feel like there should be enough stock for those that want it at release. That way it's limited to the die-hard fans that wanted it week one and if you miss it then you're out of luck (but at least you had a chance!) That's how it should work, imo!



zeldagaymer93 commented on Famitsu Article Reportedly Inks Out More Splat...:

Lmao, Nintendo fans hate when other gamers call Nintendo "kiddie" but Nintendo still doesn't add voice chat into games that are based around communication. I love Nintendo but their censorship is so outdated. Get with the times already. You should have online voice chat for this game w/ the ability to turn it off if you don't want to hear people. And there should be an option for parental controls to turn it off. But at least give the OPTION to have voice chat for the majority of people that want it.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Wii U Enjoyed Its Best Ever Month of US Sales ...:

@Nintendo69 I am in love with Nintendo and I appreciate many Nintendo and non-Nintendo games. Though, I was also a business student and I'm an accountant. While I am happy that their sales have increased a little bit, it's still pretty sad to see the low sales figures. You don't have to be a fanboy to point out that going from supper awful sales to just awful sales isn't that great.

It's like that episode of Arrested Development when the company stock goes from "sell" to "don't buy." Sure it's an improvement! But it's still not that great.



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.
