argh4430 commented on Konami Already Planning Next Metal Gear Game, ...:

@Pod I said the same thing about the Final Fantasy series, but apart from the FF13 series being milked to high heaven, it was doing really well. I'm sure enough people there can figure it out, and hire talented people. It is MGS after all.



argh4430 commented on Rumour: XSEED Less Than Happy With Nintendo's ...:

NoA is in a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" now. I suppose they saw losing the trust of a publisher for them is less damaging than the trust of their consumers, even though the game is getting lambasted. If they didn't flip-flop and react to a "rumor," a lot of this wouldn't happen, but I suppose they didn't want to get on the bad graces of their parent company by appearing different from them.

EDIT: now that I think about it, the consumers and fan-reactions probably had nothing to do with the flip-flop, and it was all contractual obligations they would, seemly, pass off to another company, making NoA far more of a shady partner in this case. Just my thoughts, but the story behind this case is far more interesting and entertaining than the game itself. I almost want to buy the game just for that.



argh4430 commented on Minecraft: Story Mode is Heading to Wii U:

I didn't like the the few telltale games i've played (Walking Dead part 1 and Wolf Among Us), so i'm not too excited. Still, more games like those need to be made in the West. Not enough VNs, or VN-likes.



argh4430 commented on FAST Racing NEO Developer Shin’en Multimedia...:

@Jimtaro yeah, I agree. It's one thing to really, truly know whether a console's or console-maker's audience is there for you, but that kind of message comes off too aggresively some times. Like, i'm not putting in more effort to doing your job of selling the game, so don't go after my emotions like that. As if the bad sales happen because I didn't tell x number of people to buy a game.

On miiverse, one of the verified users for the sequel mentioned that the first game might be censored when it arrives on Wii U, due to feeling that the low sales of the sequel are due to the lower ages of the consumer-base.



argh4430 commented on Chris Prangar, Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Who ...:

I'm seeing a trend of disgruntled workers from Nintendo, and it makes sense. First, silencing Adelman and him leaving, then Damon Baker getting slammed for his comments on new 3ds, later those leaks to Liam Robertson, finally Pranger's comments and subsequent firing. Seems like stuff there is pretty bad, leading to venting, which leads to further complications. And it's not helping that we would slam these peopleas being the face of Nintendo and what they're doing bad. Just seems like a bunch of unrelated stuff piling on each other, with these people as the collateral damage.



argh4430 commented on Chris Pranger From Nintendo Treehouse Discusse...:

And this is the main reason why NoA needs to have a stronger hand in getting games pushed through themselves. By that, I mean courting western devs in the retail space. Because that's what the majority of your market is looking at, not the eShop-only devs who are lucky to sell more than 10,000 copies. indies are great, but hardly anyone wants to use your eShop, and I don't blame them, it's horribly designed.



argh4430 commented on Interview: 13AM Games on Getting Up to Speed W...:

That was a great interview. I'm not interested in the game at all, but I wish them luck in getting the sales they do deserve. I know a lot of people here don't get anything from the eShop due to Nintendo's practices, but I hope if they have interest in this game, they make that one exception.

@XCWarrior can you blame them when it's the "in" thing? Nostalgia is a very powerful thing, and it's sure to catch the attention of anyone who lived and gamed then. Plus, it's easier to do when your art skills suck. Bonus points for Wii U indies, since those and the rare exclusives are the only indies selling well on the eShop.



argh4430 commented on Review: Fat City (Wii U eShop):

The game's community on miiverse is what you would expect. Last I checked, there was only 4 player posts. The rest are fat jokes or people slamming the game.



argh4430 commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

@DreamOn I know you're joking, but something along the lines of Super Puzzle Fighter would actually be awesome. Nintendo doesn't have a competitive puzzler like the Puyo series besides Dr. Mario, which only has so many nuances. A smash version of Puyo or Magical Drop could work wonders.



argh4430 commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

I would say Nintendo makes their hardware for themself, and anyone else making games for it is a plus. This time, they had to mostly go it alone, with smaller devs backing them up. I bet Nintendo will definitely have smaller and more realistic outlook for the NX, no matter what it will be.



argh4430 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd July (North America):

Of course, i'm getting 3D Streets of Rage 2, but interestingly enough, but brother-in-law is more excited for Canvaleon. Dragon Fantasy looks good, too. I might buy more than one thing at full price this week, crazy!
