ecco6t9 commented on Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Could Have Been ...:

Skylanders would not have caught on that late in the Wii's life. It has been a mass success but it required it to be multiplatform.

Secondly at the time it seemed consumers were moving away from add ons of Wii Fit, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, DJ Hero, Tony Hawk,



ecco6t9 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Saturn:

The mismanagement of the Saturn is the result of two Sega branches bickering back and forth with each other even though Sega of Japan was still going to have the final word at the end of the day.

Then they hired a tool by the name of Bernie Stolar...



ecco6t9 commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

I would be less "upset" if the 3DS Virtual Console had a Game Boy or Game Boy Color game at least once a month. Now it is nothing more than a dumping ground for the NES Virtual Console.

Even then I see no Blades of Steel, Guardian Legend, Star Tropics, and many others.



ecco6t9 commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:

So at this point the only thing stopping GBA games from being on the 3DS is that GBA games run in a GBA Mode that turns off StreetPass and SpotPass.

Personally I would take not having those features if it meant my entire Nintendo handheld collection could be on one handheld.



ecco6t9 commented on Koji Igarashi, Best Known for the Castlevania ...:

I just hope that whatever is going to be made is made on the 3DS as well.

It seems these Kickstarters are $100 for PC Edition, $1000 for PS3/360 version, $1500 for PS4/One, $2000 for Vita, $1,000,000 for Wii U, $10,000,000 for 3DS version.

I would donate to more of them if the 3DS versions had more realistic goals.



ecco6t9 commented on Investor Wants Nintendo To Create Mobile Title...:

Oy, Considering that Nintendo is the only one of the big three with a solid future.

Nintendo knows it will struggle with the Wii U but the 3DS will help ease that pain.

Sony seems to be held up entirely by Sony Computer Entertainment at the moment.

Microsoft seems to not even know if they want to keep the Xbox Division open, closed, or sell it.



ecco6t9 commented on Less Than 5% of Those Polled by the Game Devel...:

When that Mobile/Tablet bubble bursts it will not be a pretty sight.

One would hope that developers big and small develop an occasional token handheld and console game to build up goodwill with traditional gaming consumers.



ecco6t9 commented on Game Boy Advance Titles To Hit Wii U Virtual C...:

I will be disappointed in every Nintendo Direct until GBA are on the 3DS Virtual Console.
Even at this point it has become a dumping ground for NES games as Game Boy and Game Boy Color seem to have been pushed aside.
