Doma commented on Nintendo Confirms The Mario Kart 8 Premium Pac...:

Simply isn’t worth it once you realise that Nintendo revealed the entire future library of this console during last year's January Direct. No price above £120 (maybe a bit higher for this bundle) would justify the investment for such a paltry number of releases.

Doma commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Must Take Careful Step...:

@outburst I think it's been established that Nintendo has lowered the price in NA only, while blatantly ripping off everybody else. Just ignore this game.

I haven't touched a single piece of DLC (or any paid downloads) from Nintendo because of how overpriced and inferior their service is. That won't be changing any time soon.

Doma commented on Nintendo Confirms Mario Golf: World Tour DLC, ...:

@Yorumi There's nothing ironic about the inferiority of Nintendo's set-up compared to how their competition has been doing it for many years.

I don't bother comparing physical to download games. I'll always prefer the latter where the option is a viable alternative. However, when they're overpriced (their games cost more than they do physically, here in the UK) and hardware locked on Nintendo systems, it squanders any advantage they may have over physical copies. The eShop is a very poor excuse of a download store.

@KennyPowers I know what he was referring to, but it doesn't matter. The example still matches his quote.

Meh, call me whenever Nintendo decide to stop being morons and provide us with proper accounts. Their download platform can't be taken seriously until then.

Enjoy your milking, fanboys!

@WiiULoveGBA Also with that particular quote - "And one thing Nintendo has determined as a company policy, what we are not going to do is create a full game and then say, ‘let's hold this back for DLC.' That's not our plan.”

The game itself was held back for a year, in-order to implement some cash grab DLC for it. So actually, it's the perfect example.

Doma commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

The Sakurai Direct has been the only one worth watching since their inception, to me.There's so much negligible/boring info given in the usual Directs, that it would be better given as standard press announcements (which should be regular, instead of keeping people in the dark constantly).

Nintendo Direct should be scrapped. I usually just wait for the round-ups anyway because i can't stand watching anything hosted by Iwata or Reggie.

Doma commented on Vita Overtakes 3DS in Tough Week for Japanese ...:

@wombatkidd The PS2 still received WAY more third party titles (non-shovelware) than the GC or Xbox. So comparing its support to the Wii's influx of garbage is quite silly of you.

Also, to that last question: How about every GTA game (and plenty of EA stuff from what i remember).

@minotaurgamer You should know that 'fanboys' are cultists who love and praise Nintendo, no matter what. Any disregard to the WiiU being a perfect system will initiate anger within these folk, you see many examples of such behaviour on this website... They can't be the ones responsible for “hating on the atrocious Wii U”, lol.

Doma commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle for a Presence in UK ...:

@Excep7ional Within the coming years, i think Nintendo will gradually edge themselves for departure of the console market (it's likely what this 'QoL' stuff entails). Sadly, i don't think this will lead them into making games for Sony... They'll probably stick with handhelds for another gen, but other than that, nada.

Nintendo's relevancy in gaming is set for death, thanks to Iwata's 'we are unable to compete/meet today's standards' mentality.

I don't think i'll ever understand the desire of people trying to imagine/re-enact their own life via a videogame.. it honestly disturbs me (unless you're a child).

This is possibly the most stupid and unhealthy genre in gaming.

Doma commented on Rumour: Mario Golf: World Tour To Offer Additi...:

@LunaticPandora Any rational person will notice that it's too soon to be promoting 'additional paid courses' when the game has yet to be released. I already doubt the base game will be worth its £30+ retail price tag (i'm guessing it will match your description of MK7...). So yes, advertising this to me now has devalued it.

Doma commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

I'm proud of the fact i haven't bought a Mario related game since 2011 (Smash Bros. will end this period, but that has everything to do with it containing other IP). I'm doing my part, but it seems the majority of Nintendo's fanbase enjoy playing the same crap over and over...

Doma commented on Super Smash Bros. Direct Will Bring the Hype o...:

What i expect:

  • Some actual info on the game modes, unique features etc.
  • a couple new character announcements.

What i don't expect:

  • A release date (they'll just say something vague i.e. 'Autumn/Winter')
  • Any details regarding online.

Anyhow, i'll be waiting for the aftermath unless it isn't hosted by that dullard, Iwata.

Good thing it's just Smash related, btw. Screw Mario Kart!

@Datasun_7 Another reason why they need to hurry up and kill off the WiiU already. Nintendo should be prioritising the only system making them money.

@Peach64 That wouldn’t work out for them as intended, it'd only piss off the majority of potential buyers. Anyway, the 3DS line-up is too barren to allow them to.

@GalacticMario28 “Nintendo has made it clear that they are changing up their business strategies in response to their current situation”

Not really. We all expected some big change to be announced during that January meeting, but what became of it? We instead hear about how he's sticking with the current failed WiiU plan, while trying to divert people's attention to a completely vague/pipe-dream strategy involving QoL.

@somari Stating facts makes me a WiiU hater? Lol, the 3DS and Sony/MS hold no significance to what i said (if anything, they make the WiiU's failure look even worse). There's obviously no point in discussing anything with you further.

Nintendo are in for a long and painful demise unless they manage to get rid of this fool and his sidekicks. They need managers who aren't so senile and afraid of change/competition, to be at the helm instead. The company needs to be brought into 2014.

Doma commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

@LUIGITORNADO "Metroid Fusion is better than most PS1 and PS2 games anyways, and M&L is a RPG filled with content."

I own both games, and can tell you that both of these statement are false.

Fusion was great for a 2D Metroid. It's pure madness to say it trumps the best of what the PS1/2 have to offer, though.

M&L was good for what is clearly a beginner's RPG. Not much to do there apart from the main quest (which is about the length you'd expect from it, nothing huge).

Doma commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

@ikki5 By Nintendo releasing them on the lesser system first, fanboys are more likely to buy the same games again once they do come to the desired platform. This wouldn't happen if they were released on the WiiU/3DS simultaneously. How's that for milking?

Doma commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

@Caryslan I'd guess that the only reason they chart is due to being the most recognizable Nintendo IP, combined with the fact they're the cheapest games available on the store. Most buyers probably ignore/discard them after the first 10 mins of play.

@Falco I fail to see what's selfish about that. You think it's a smart idea to be prioritizing handheld games on the WiiU, instead of their actual handheld?

Buy a WiiU if we want them? HA, nobody is that desperate.

@ZeroZX_Dev Look at the WiiU's status at market.. It's a bad joke to be saying the Gamepad is something that drew people in.

@cmk8 Advance Wars 2 on GBA is the best one.

@ikki5 I said 'too old', i'm well aware that EVERY single game on the service is old, thanks. GB games are also too old and crappy, apart from a select few titles. The difference in playability between them and GBA is huge. Just be honest, nobody really cares about NES/GB today (Facebook whining is irrelevant). The games are too primitive to enjoy now, unlike SNES/GBA.

Without an account system and cross compatibility, it's pretty stupid to be spreading games across platforms by mixing handheld/home console games. The idiots in charge of this need to wake up.
