dizzy_boy commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

To all those moaning about speculative nature of this news, you have to remember that it gets people talking about Nintendo's NX.
Nintendo knows that once new patents are applied for, the news of it gets out eventually. Regardless of how people feel about the patent, people are going to talk about it. Nintendo also knows that if people are talking about their patents, it keeps people focused on their next peice of hardware. It's free advertising and keeps the name relevant, along with keeping people interested in what's happing at Nintendo.

It was only a matter of time really that Nintendo got round to restocking those Amiibo's. I can see them doing another run again at some point, so it's always worth hanging on instead of caving in to the scalpers.

dizzy_boy commented on Nintendo Is Licensing Hudson Soft IP From Konami:

Totally agree with others above, Konami may aswell sell of the IP they don't want to use. Other developers could do better things with them.
Although, I don't think it would be worth Nintendo buying them all up, they're struggling to keep up with their own IP. Then again they could pass them on to Retro, Nd, Monolith, and 1- up.

dizzy_boy commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

I think Miiverse does need to be a bit more organized, so the update should be quite nice.
The 30 post limit doesn't bother me as I very rarely even get past 5.
I don't really see peopes problems with it really. The majority of the random posts are on the youtube community anyway. Tbh though, I've never really understood why Nintendo just didn't add a specific community for people to chat about random stuff, it wou'd have made more sense than flooding game communities.

dizzy_boy commented on Nintendo Quality Of Life Patent Applications A...:

It was obvious this had nothing to do with the NX as the QoL was announced way before the DeNA deal.
Although not mentioned, it could be speculated that there might be some sort of connectivity between the two. But, at this point, nobody knows until Nintendo confirms it.
Anyway, QoL just seems to be aimed at the health conscious and well being crowd.
Even though I'm not really interested in buying it, it's nice to know what they're upto.

dizzy_boy commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

@Bowser908 You kind of missed the point of my post.
If you read through, others were saying that Devils Third looks terrible because of the WiiU being under powered. I suggested that there are games on the WiiU that look far better than what's being shown.
And no, I'm not wasting money on either an XBOX or a gaming PC, I can get most of the games I want on my WiiU.

dizzy_boy commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

Devils Third looks like a last gen game. I was always hoping that the final build would actually look far better than this, espacially as the WiiU can handle better visuals. And now that the gameplay seems to be suffering too just makes the situation worse.
I was mildly interested in this, but now I'm not so sure. It just seems a real shame as the WiiU could do with more FPS games other than CoD.
Also, both CoD games on the WiiU show that the WiiU is capable of doing better visuals, and Blops 2 was a launch window game, so there really is no argument to say the WiiU can't put out better looking games.
Also, try playing Need for Speed most wanted, or Tekken Tag Tournament 2, they're also games that came out early in the WiiU life span, and show they look far better than what's been shown so far of Devils Third.
People are always complaining that Nintendo doesn't back many third party games, sometimes I can understand why. It's not always going to work out in Nintendo's favour to do so.

dizzy_boy commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

Wow, that news was like waking up to a kick in the balls.
I didn't think Iwata's illness was that serious. I'm wondering if it was stress related, being in the position he was in it's hard to tell.
Well, I just hope that who ever takes over will have the determination to carry on what ever Iwata started, and focus on keeping Nintendo games fun.

dizzy_boy commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

I wouldn't suprise me in the least if Nintendo made a step backwards with the NX, and they completely gimmped it in every way. Cartridges and low res graphics are now back in fashion people.
In an ideal situation, I just want Nintendo to have hardware in line with what the others are making, the ability to play my games on a friends console from my hd drive, keep the fans and 3rd parties happy, and let NoE and NoA put money into developing their own games

dizzy_boy commented on Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Exposé Reveals Torrid St...:

It's probably a safe bet to say that Nintendo from now on are going to suffocate on their own damn pride.
They're at a point where they should be evolving and improving their internal studios, which includes giving NoA and NoE the time and resources to set up AAA teams for them selves.
NoJ are given way too much control with what software the company are producing. They can keep Mario and Zelda, but letting NoA and NoE develop games from past I.P's, even allowing for new ones would see Nintendo remain as one of the top developers.
This is why people take a negative view of Nintendo at times, simply because they'e not doing what's best for the company, rather than what's best for their internal beliefs.

dizzy_boy commented on Feature: What If The SNES PlayStation Had Actu...:

@Gamer83 With Sega on the way out, had Nintendo and Sony still be in partnership together, I still think MS would still have been paying attention, and would have still jumped in with the XBOX.
The motive was there to be a rival to Sony (albeit with Nintendo at their side), and without Sega taking a slice of the hardware sales. the opportunity was there too.
MS had the money to fund the entry into the console arena, and I think they would have done it where ever Sony and Nintendo's relationship lay.

Even if Nintendo continued this route with Sony, I doubt Sega would still be here as a console manufacturer. Sega made their own mistakes independently of what anyone else was doing.
Microsoft just saw an opportunity with the XBOX and it paid off for them.
Either way, Sony and Nintendo were only doing what they thought was right for business, and it just wasn't ment to be.

dizzy_boy commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Asks for Fan Trust With Metro...:

Nintendo made the mistake of setting Federation Force in the Metroid universe. If they had set it as it's own I.P the negatitvity would have never there.
There would still be the dissapoinment of no proper Metroid, but tnat would have been easier for most people to deal with.

dizzy_boy commented on Working On F-Zero Wouldn't Have Been My Idea O...:

The point is that criterion shouldn't have accepted the EA buy out then. Although, we wouldn't have the excellent NSF MW on the WiiU.
I always thought Ward was a bit off to blame Nintendo for not promoting NFS MW, it's not their game, that job should be done by EA. And what stopped Criterion putting money behind the game's advertising, they could have put that into their budget plans.
The other thing to note is, by offering Criterion F-Zero, Nintendo obviously had confidence in them to do the job properly. They could have quite easily said come back in a few months and we'll speak.
I would rather have had F-Zero at some point in the WiiU's life than being dropped because Nintendo wanted it to be a launch title.

dizzy_boy commented on Super Mario Maker's Packaging Sure Looks Pretty:

@lividd3ad people are different on how they learn things. Some people might want to be shown how to use the tools in Mario Maker. Other people will want to get stuck in and try everything out for themselves.
Besides, there's a possibility those levels will be available in the share section of the game anyway.For me, the next couple of months can't go quick enough.
