atomicjuicer commented on Europe, You're Getting Three More New 3DS Cove...:

(To clarify my reason for a "limited" release:

Americans seem to believe that bigger is better (I've visited the US a few times and everything is HUGE!). Over here cars, buildings, seats, portion sizes, and people* are smaller. Now don't get me wrong, some things like IMAX theaters, roads, TVs and houses should be bigger but controllers, phones and handhelds deserve limits in my opinion.

Nintendo probably felt that the bigger handheld would sell better in the US and they probably used test groups (I even remember youtubers from the US saying they would be getting the bigger one). The cover decision was probably a tough one either way, but its unusual for Europe to get customization and personalization options not available to the US so this was a first and maybe an experiment by Nintendo just to see what would happen.

*I mean bigger in terms of height.



atomicjuicer commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

The other M gameplay was great (environments, power ups etc.) but they lost the idea of being alone. Exploring by yourself without extra annoying characters.

Samus should be more like a sci-fi archaeologist with weapons and scanners to keep her safe. Or Lara croft / indiana jones in space sorta.



atomicjuicer commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I hope Star Fox (or Star Wing!) goes back to its SNES roots. Majestic music, awe inspiring visuals, and dramatic scenarios.

I've no interest in waving my gamepad around and I don't care about the characters.

If they want to use the gamepad well they should let you give special orders to the team (like a list of targets on the right of the screen and a list of pilots on the left so you can match them up or something). Maybe let you transfer shield energy between ships or power bombs (kinda like a midair refueling).



atomicjuicer commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I'm not interested in smash brothers which seemed to be one of the main games for amiibo and though the stock levels and price were fine where I live, the only character I was interested in (Samus) seemed too plasticky to me. I wouldn't mind having a Samus figure on my desk at work but I'd want something a bit more expensive looking with better materials.

I'm glad they don't hold important DLC though because I'm not a toy collector.



atomicjuicer commented on Nintendo Working On New 'Dedicated Game Platfo...:

Somehow this news is exciting and dissapointing at the same time. I'm excited that a new nintendo console is defintitely coming but announcing it now worries me that it means there'll be no Metroid or Fzero for Wii u.

The mobile stuff is just a terrible idea full stop. Sony just closed PS mobile because it was an absolute failure and they actually make mobile phones so nintendo games on mobile is a bad idea.

Look at ridge racer or street fighter on mobile and tell me that something like Metroid would work. It won't and they'll waste millions.


New dedicated gaming device sounds great though. I wonder if they'll go after VR again?



atomicjuicer commented on First Image Of Wii U Wipeout-Beater FAST Racin...:

I hope they just rip wipeout off completely to be honest. Sony have let it die and won't r making another wipeout for the next few years.

Hopefully it's not one of those motion or touch controlled racing games. They suck.

I also found the orb color thing very confusing rather than enjoyable. Please minimize that aspect.

Graphics look phenomenal. Day one if they pull this off!



atomicjuicer commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

@gatorboi352 Well, when you learn that business doesn't care about tech maintenance after 10 years and that not every game company lasts as long as Nintendo then you'll realise how anti-gamer digital content can be.

The only option is to make community servers mandatory for titles that publishers don't want to support online any more.



atomicjuicer commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

This is why no on wanted Always Online DRM on Xbox one.

No more Mario kart mp on Wii

There should be a law that requires game companies to release server access to the community for products they can't afford to run themselves any more.



atomicjuicer commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

Disappointing. Can't believe I watched it live.

The new X footage has actually dissuaded me from buying it. X doesn't look interesting to me now.

No Metroid, no starfox, no fzero.

Out of desperation I can say the moon game for 3ds seemed of interest.



atomicjuicer commented on Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014:

The only thing missing from Metroid other m was isolation.
Everything else was cool.

I do not want some angry donkey military "bounty hunting" murderer with gross/super violent themes.

Keep it as an exploration game and don't get bogged down in Samus herself. Make it about the worlds she visits and invest everything in the environments not the story. The gamer makes their own story.
Please watch the profanity — TBD



atomicjuicer commented on Miyamoto: Retro Studios is High on The List of...:

We need a follow up to other M on the 3ds.

Wii u is desperate for Metroid but I can wait a year (or more if it takes that long to make it truly awesome).

Make me wait more than 1.5 years from now and nintendo will be permanently dead to me.



atomicjuicer commented on Talking Point: F-Zero GX HD Could Boost the Fr...:

One of the reasons wii u sales are low is that only titles for children are made.
Nintendo need to remember their other fans who don't like Zelda.
Starfox was a success because it was cutting edge (the characters were never the main focal point). It was an exciting space shooter.

Metroid was a lonely meditation on an alien planet. A soul searching exploration of a forgotten ancient, advanced civilization.

Fzero no longer has wipeout as a competitor.



atomicjuicer commented on Europe Now Receiving Club Nintendo Stars For A...:

Yep, it's a joke the way Europe is treated. I've thousands of useless stars and no coins after filling in about 30 surveys when I bought my 3ds and decided to register all my existing wii stuff.

Stuff like this is why I haven't bought a wii u, even though I could afford 4 of them. If Nintendo don't care about me, why should I show them kindness?



atomicjuicer commented on Interview: Michael Pachter On Wii U, 3DS And T...:

Pachter was right. Right up until Friday when Adam Orth accidentally revealed the new Xbox's vital weakness.

Always on DRM!

Lol, they're finished. Nintendo and Sony are saved (I had written off the wii u too but I didn't expect Microsoft to jump off a cliff).
