I love that "a new radical approach" for the NX. I love Nintendo surprising me all the time. I couldn't care less about the games on the other consoles. Well could. But not too much... Nintendo's awesome Gamecube controller to the motion controls of the Wii to the Gamepad touch screen, not to mention 3DS, everytime they surprise. Sure they'll get a lot of haters on the Internet who want a PS/XBOX clone, but I'll be right there in their next innovation, and hopefully it's a success again.

@Luna_110 Exactly. That's what beauitufl about Nintendo. Even when their main console is a disappointment in sales, they manage to come up with a new IP that sells wells, other critically acclaimed games and a smash hit (also smash bros.) in amiibo. Ingenious.

@electrolite77 not true. maybe recently it picked up pace, but last time I checked, Wii U sold more at the point of its lifetime than PS4 did. PS4 is a Japanese flop.

Here you go: like I said, PS4 behind Wii U and Gamecube.

It never outsold Wii U 2-1, your mistake is that you don't understand that consoles sell more in the beginning .You have to check how much it sells at this point of its lifetime, and Wii U outsold and beat PS4 totally.

@Lizuka good points. I haven't given them much thought like that. I just enjoyed running through these games indeed as a time killer sort of... I enjoy the gameplay itself even if it's repetitive, it's the kind of gameplay that I can enjoy and had time for.

@Chandlero Exactly. There are many weeks that Wii U is doing better. The Wi U clearly is more popular than PS4 in Japan where it kind of flopped. The only reason why PS4 will eventually pass Wii U is because they'll release the NX. If they kept supporting Wii U, PS4 will always remain behind.

They're fun games. All these Mario 2D platformers are. People make too much big deal out of them looking similar. That's how these things work. Assassin Creed abd COD games also look similar apart from artificial stuff. That's how series of games are. You play them again and again. Graphics improve, new levels, new items but in general you buy them because you're familiar with it and liked it before. Anyway, looks like Ninty stopped doing those now with SMM.

VR is not good enough because it makes you wear a stupid helmet. Period. That's what so brilliant about the 3DS, it's glasses-free, and that's how the VR should be too eventually.

Holodecks - Star Trek got it right. That's where the future is.

Very impressive and it beat and crushed:
Batman: Arkham Knight
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare
Grand Theft Auto V
Minecraft

Other 2014 and before games there... it's not a year anything. It's like favorite actor etc. Just in general - what's your current favorite game. And Nintendo kicked some serious butt.

Btw, favorite mobile game had candidates from 2009.

It's always so refreshing to hear them talk... investing their time in such a great game, beautiful graphics, supportive of Nintendo, working well with Nintendo, happy about sales results... these guys are Nintendo paradise.

dumedum commented on Sales for Dementium Remastered Have Been Much ...:

I don't usually care that much about reviews but this is Destructoid's verdict of the game: "That is two and a half hours of my life I'll never get back.... The Worst - One of my least favorite games ever. Just thinking about it is upsetting. I am upset." It's not about being a MATURE game, it's about people scared that it is a CRA**Y mature game.

These guys have been whining lately, after being pretty loyal.
Not sure what they're expecting. I'm actually interested in buying this game but if they keep this attitude up I won't.
Game scores 59 on Metacritic. Destructoid awarded it 10/100.
Improving should be their goal.

dumedum commented on Nintendo NX Doesn't Need To Compete With PlayS...:

@MoonKnight7 I just don't see it the same way. Nintendo didn't offer a revolution. Kinect maybe was supposed to be a revolution and was a total failure. This is not a revolution. It's a controller. It's a cool controller. It's a controller with a big screen on it useful for off-tv play and for maps and stuff like that. That's the way it is. I never expected it to be any more than that and I'm not even a bit disappointed.

Nintendo simply used the GamePad where it made sense. Smash Bros. doesn't need. Platforms don't need it either (although I think the microphone thing was cool and by the way it also responded to touch on trees, goombas etc.) So instead of shoehorning GamePad into DKCR they didn't do it. People didn't like it when there was a "shake" button switch in the previous DKCR. You can't have it both ways.

Nintendo knows that every game deserves its own controller. Smash Bros? Bring on the cool Gamecube controller. Pokken Tournament? We're even doing a new controller just for that. It's all about the controller.

The only disappointment about the GamePad is that third parties bailed and didn't use it. The GamePad worked beautifully for Zombi U, Mass Effect 3:SE, Arkham City: AE, Deux EX. These all done wonders. But just like the Wii Remote worked so well for Resident Evil 4 and then most companies didn't imitate, here they also had zero imagination, even though those kind of games fit the GamePad better than the style of Nintendo (which again, doesn't fit platformers).

I'd accept the criticism of Mario Kart.. maybe that big horn button and whatnot was not enough. Certainly they could have done it as another screen like I believe Sonic did, so there's no issue of power here. It was a mistake, but they knew what they were doing with the others, just like Brawl and NSMB Wii/DKCR/Galaxies didn't really need motion controls.

Each game and its own. It's just a wonderful controller to have - not sure why anyone expected the sky to fall off or something - it's not supposed to wow you every time. It's just a better controller than the standard boring controller that the other companies had... if you have 10 cool wii motion games and 10 cool GamePad games, that's what Nintendo was hoping for..... Zelda Wii U is going to use the GamePad just as Skyward Sword used it brilliantly for wii remote. That's all Nintendo is really hoping for... making a number of beautiful experiences, not sticking it to every single game in the universe.

@BinaryFragger completely disagree. All these games use the Game Pad extensively. Some games are practically built around it like SMM and Splatoon. All the games use it whether for maps, inventory, menus, and different kinds of interaction. Motion is amazing too when used right and was used in the proper context, and still used. Everything you're saying is simply not true.

@BinaryFragger that's just not true. It's used quite extensively in many games including Nintendo games. Pikmin. Wind Waker. Wonderful 101. Wii Fit U. Party. Wario. Kirby. Yoshi. Xenoblade. Splatoon. Super Mario Maker. It's used everywhere it makes sense and making it an option is a good thing just like it was with the Wii motion controls which were also used extensively and when a CC option was also available, that's just a further good thing.

Absolutely. There is no reason to do a me too console. There's no place on the market for a third dude bro console. Third parties aren't actually significant. Its the concept that needs to sell. If it sells well they would come crawling back and make some interesting games like they did with the Wii and like Ubisoft did with Zombi U and some other early efforts.

Nintendo knows better. It made "sense" to just do an amiibo me too game. But they were right not to do it and I can give you 270 million reasons why. Whatever they did how they did they struck gold with amiibo and it's a phenomenal succees.
