andrea987 commented on Full Extent of Nintendo of Europe Job Cuts Bec...:

@electrolite77 I don't think many people here are convinced Nintendo is the exception to the business world or that are perfect in every way. I'm mad at them for not doing enough, in my view, to push the WiiU, particularly with founding 3rd party releases (at least the main multiplatforms), which should be top priority (again, imo), together with first party development. But you might have much bigger issues with them, or you might give too much importance to this hobby of ours. Which I've been practicing for more than 30yrs, btw.

@Sceptic No, you were talking about Nintendo business behaviour. I don't know about UPS, but 130 staff (plus those still employed) doesn't seem like "a handful".
Also, where did they say they didn't lay off people, exactly? The whole article is about Nintendo announcing they did that, even mentioning the agency workers. Just chill, man, that's all.

@Blue-Thunder I see many comments of people who care, we just can't do much, most of us. We live in an economy where companies sometime are forced to do this to survive, sad but true. If they didn't survive ALL of the employees would lose their jobs.
I hope everyone will find something to do, all the best guys.

Glad about the improvements, but hardware? Where that leaves all the current 3DS owners?! Unless the only game which will take advantage of it (and not available on current models) will be XC, in that case it's ok.

I suspect the gender statistics are from the surveys you take when registering a console or a game on Club Nintendo. That would be correct, assuming everyone is honest in answering how many people play the consoles/games and what gender they are. And assuming everyone does register their consoles/games. Bad assumptions, particularly with a home console (hence the difference).

andrea987 commented on Miyamoto States That Nintendo Is Sticking With...:

Wow, reading comments on here of how people fail to see the benefits of WiiU really makes me lose faith in humanity. Well, the little I have left... No wonder WiiU isn't doing as good as it should. I mean, really?
A console with traditional, touch and motion controlling options; off-tv play; integrated gaming social media; free online play (yes, it's the only one of the three current gen consoles to have it); backward compatibility with Wii, huge catalogue; Virtual Console with some of the best games of the last 30 years, fast internet browser, etc etc.

@DefHalan An exploration/narrative game that only last 2-3 hours (reading comments of people who played it) a good game? Endless Ocean (1 or 2, doesn't matter) lasts about 60-70 hours, rushing and without counting online. That's what I want from an exploration game, especially from one that cost more than few $/£/€.
Not saying is not a nice little game, if the price is right I might get it.
