archlord commented on Satoru Iwata Talks Down Wii U Price Cut Prospe...:
Putting Smash on the 3DS is a bad idea. Also, how are they going to try and reel people in with the gamepad when their development process, obviously, takes quite some time. If they're going to turn things around with it, it certainly won't be this year.
archlord commented on Capcom Reportedly Planning Western Release of ...:
Subscription? Fine with me. Wish the MHO MMORPG from China would see the light of day for English audiences as well.
archlord commented on Video: The 10 Biggest Wii U Games Of 2014:
I'm with @gregrout here. We've known about many of these titles for quite sometime except for Hyrule Warriors and a couple others. I see only 'X' and Bayonetta 2 being released beyond spring... what's after that?
archlord commented on The Nikkei Reports Potential Nintendo Smartpho...:
If Nintendo made a smart phone I would buy it in a heart beat. I would love to ditch Android, but I don't like any of the alternatives at the moment.
archlord commented on Monster Hunter 4 G Due In Autumn / Fall This Year:
I'll buy it if it comes out west for my 2DS, but I really want it for the Wii U. PS3 even... I don't care, I just want to play it on the big screen! MH3U is amazing on Wii U.
archlord commented on Persona Q: Shadow of Labyrinth Website Launched:
@B3ND3R that's awesome. My first was Revelations: Persona and then Revelations: the Demon Slayer. Being my favorite game is Earthbound, discovering Persona not long after was awesome. The modern day setting and horror-like atmosphere really drew me in.
archlord commented on Feature: 12 Days of Christmas - EarthBound Esc...:
Hoping Nintendo will publish Mother 4 on the eShop. Doubtful though.
@Sanquine you shouldn't be offended. Most people weren't aware of the MegaTen games before Personal 3. Persona 1 and 2 don't get the credit they deserve.
archlord commented on Funky Kong's Return Confirmed for Donkey Kong ...:
Does anyone really "get stoked" for these announcements?
archlord commented on Review: NES Remix (Wii U eShop):
Seriously thought this game wouldn't be this good. I was way wrong. This is one game I'll definitely have no problems buying DLC if and when it's available.Thanks for the nice surprise, Nintendo.
archlord commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Zelda Meets Dynasty Warrior...:
Hopefully they've figured out how to program the Wii U better and there actually IS enough horsepower in the Wii U to get a better frame-rate. I'm referencing Koei Tecmo's statements last year regarding the Wii U's weaker CPU clock speed.
archlord commented on Happy Birthday, Wii U - You're One Today:
I love the Wii U! Hoping 2014 is a huge year for good games and better sales, but even still, I'll be enjoying the Wii U regardless.
archlord commented on Review: Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (Wii U):
@AyeHaley Deus Ex all the way. I've never played the game before and I'm blown away by it. Extremely fun! As @LDXD said "it's a gem."
archlord commented on The Nintendo 2DS Was The UK's Best-Selling Con...:
I bought one last week. I absolutely love the feel of the device. I got some screen protection film cut to fit each screen, so no worries about it always being exposed. Thoroughly enjoying Soul Hackers and SMT4.
archlord commented on Wii U Family Hardware Bundles Revealed in Japan:
Hopefully this works out. All #wiiu tags on Instagram show people with their new Zelda WW HD bundles. I'm interested to hear just how much of a boost Nintendo got from this bundle.
archlord commented on Video: Level-5's Wii U RPG Wonder Flick Gets A...:
The nice thing for Wii U owners is we won't have to rely on cell phones for input.
archlord commented on Panzer Dragoon Creator Yukio Futatsugi Wants T...:
@LDXD @SecondServing I don't think they'll die off, more so the technologies will combine. One device for everything. A docking station here, a portable dock there. Something will change. I will always prefer a straight up console though.
Oh, and LDXD, perhaps a small notification that would pop-up or an LED to let you know of an incoming call. Gives you enough chance to either answer or simply ignore and save your game and an appropriate spot.
@LDXD I have an ASUS Transformer which is like a hybrid tablet/netbook with an NVIDIA Tegra 3. Most of the games are crap. Some good ones, but too many are knock offs of major console/portable/PC titles. I do enjoy some games, but I don't think I'll ever get used to strictly touch screen controls.
In the future, we will probably see a pleasant gaming experience from mobile platforms, but it's at least a few years away. If Nintendo joined the fray and made a phone with a controller dock of some sort I'd be all over. OF COURSE, it'd have to have a block call feature.
@LDXD We share the same opinion, but like it or not, it's the way the world is going.
@Araknie This man probably sees a future where mobile platforms dominate the game industry. I can certainly see it happening and I think the big 3 see it as well.
archlord commented on Talking Point: Marketing Wii U to the Masses:
There's just so much emphasis on the tablet. Yes, that is the focus, but if one doesn't take a good, strong look at the advertisements, it could be easily mistaken that the tablet is merely sitting in front of a black Wii.
Show the console off in advertisments more, hell, show it side by side with the old Wii. Just stop focusing 100% of the attention on the tablet controller.
archlord commented on Bethesda: The Time For Convincing Publishers A...:
I wouldn't say Nintendo's time is "long past", but their current approach should be changed in favor of what Hines mentions. There's a good chance Nintendo would see more 3rd party support from the get go with the approach Hines mentions rather than expecting 3rd parties to jump on due to strong 1st party sales.
archlord commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Aut...:
Although I voted for WW, I'm excited for nearly all the games on the list and I'm going to try my hardest to buy all of them.
archlord commented on Nintendo Has "Nothing To Announce" Regarding M...:
What is the point of that special MiiVerse announcement community then? There must be something in the works.
archlord commented on Review: Street Fighter II: The World Warrior (...:
I played this game for hours on end when I was 5. It was "all I thought about for weeks on end". I got in trouble for drawing "violent" pictures in the 1st grade of Ken and Zhangief fighting. I wasn't a violent kid, but I really loved Street Fighter!
archlord commented on Reggie Has Seen The Xbox One And PS4 Launch Li...:
The Wii U has a lot on the horizon, but I'm worried if there's much of anything planned aside from what we've been shown already.
Hopefully we'll be bombarded with a slew of new title announcements soon, but I'm not too optimistic about it.
archlord commented on Reaction: Nintendo Surprises Us All With the 2...:
Always wanted a 3DS, but buying one with all these games coming out will put me over the edge. I'm buying a 2DS. It's got all the same games, functions along with that price tag. Portable enough to fit in my messenger back which I take everywhere.
archlord commented on Shadow of the Eternals Fails To Meet Funding Goal:
Given their reputation and track record, they should be happy with the money they've received. Look at Project Phoenix. Their minimum goal was $100,000 with big triple A game devs/composers/etc. involved. 750k is just too much.
archlord commented on Katsura Hashino: "Many Announcements" Set For ...:
I hope they make it out of this mess okay. Long live Atlus!
archlord commented on Talking Point: The Wonderful 101 Direct and De...:
@sinalefaI got the same feeling. The way the message came across to me was that the NA demo was a very last minute addition.
The Wonderful 101's marketing has been done very well with the exception of one small thing. The demo announcement was sort of messy on the NA front. It sparked up a little bit of irritation with more than few people, myself included. Things cooled over when everyone found out the demo was coming later that day, but still it could've been announced better instead of "North American players will have to a wait a bit longer". It's just a bit too vague.
archlord commented on Wii U Hardware Still Being Sold At A Loss:
Wouldn't cutting the game pad now make the majority of games unplayable; in addition, require an obvious system update? Every dev would have to release an update so the game pad wasn't required for current titles.
archlord commented on Wonderful 101 Team Is Platinum's Biggest Ever,...:
Hope it sells well. Day 1 purchase here.
