" Nintendo wants to make money like any good corporation but is limited in manpower. I am sure someone ran a cost analysis or two and if it was profitable, they would be doing it."
Yes i agree, i think its a lot harder to do these games well than people think.
I personally doubt the 3d classics line has sold well enough, and as much as people harp on about Urban Champion, there are good games as well like shinobi and pop n twinbee that have so few reviews on the eshop it looks like nobody buys them



arkady77 commented on Review: GAIABREAKER (Wii U eShop):

as the reviewer said there are tonnes of great shooters on the wii u. neo geo, TG16, snes, megadrive, master system etc through wii mode.
sin and punishment star successor and geometry wars



arkady77 commented on Areal Campaign Suspended By Kickstarter:


thats it. a lot of people are trolling these guys with no evidence. i can believe that the GSC Gameworld split was messy. its one thing to not support a camapign you have reasonable doubts about but another entirely to claim fraud



arkady77 commented on SteamWorld Dig May Have a Discount on Wii U Fo...:

consider it bought Image & Form! cant wait to play it on the big screen. defintely a favourite game of mine. cross buy should be standard for virtual console but i dont mind paying twice for original games on different platforms. its a good length and replayable, unlike most big budget games



arkady77 commented on New Fatal Frame Will Be Spooking The Wii U In ...:

i hope that nintendo know that these types of games are a big deal to core gamers in the west. i'm quietly confident. Fatal Frame was one of the reasons i grabbed a second hand PS2 long ago. that and Metal Gear and Tenchu, i have zero faith they will get a wiiu release



arkady77 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

as an older gamer but without the disease of nostalgia i pick Twilight Princess for being so immersive and charming with great combat and the amazing Midna! with Phantom Hourglass and Skyward Sword honourable mentions. It doesnt make you some ultimate hardcore gamer to suggest Ocarina of Time or Majoras Mask are the best and everything else is garbage, it makes you sound like Sonic fans



arkady77 commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

the melee and the shooting looked really solid. will definitely be buying this for both SP and MP. i hated how ninja gaiden and tenchu were either not on or poor on nintendo hardware. itagaki is a master of flashy, cheesy crap but the mechanics are pure awesome



arkady77 commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

awesome machine that has replaced my other computers for web, youtube etc undeniably the OS has been patched well since launch, albeit slowly and the games library is brilliant. with Gamecube support it'd be my favourite console yet



arkady77 commented on Dragon Quest X Is Now Adventuring Onto 3DS:

i would buy this twice, but first on wiiu. wasnt DQ9 profitable in the west? i'm happy paying a subscription. beats the hell out of pay-to-win. easily my favourite RPG series, even more than bioware stuff. but square can keep Bravely Default, not my type



arkady77 commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Explains His Belief That the ...:

for all the criticism they get for being arrogant nintendo questions its own assumptions thoroughly and i think this is what keeps its offerings interesting. i am still sceptical about how much they will sell, but i am sure they will continue to make fun products



arkady77 commented on Miyamoto Thinks That Nintendo Are in a Genre o...:

i'm thinking genre is a bad translation or his meaning is impossible to directly translate. anyway its cool imo to hold your nerve and continue with your own vision when your peers are obsessively watching and copying each other. pikmin is cool so is Killer 7, S.T.A.L.K.E.R, Okami and Scram Kitty.
definition of uncool: Gears of War and COD unlockables and killstreaks, achievements and other crap that pollutes your screen telling you what a badarse you are
