ecco6t9 commented on Nintendo Held Back Western Launch Of New 3DS D...:

I can't figure out what Nintendo is thinking these days.

Amiibos are hot yet no one seems to know if they are even getting ones that were reserved, retailers seem to make up the release dates, Nintendo has never 100% said what or if some might only have one run or when they might come back or something or yeah.

Limiting a variation on a handheld that fans want and Nintendo is still the King of the handheld market.

Staggered release dates on Virtual Console games for no reason other than making it up. Remember Kirby 2 on the 3DS?

I don't think too many of us are genuinely upset but confused and Nintendo's half answers are not helping.

One of the issues is that this is yet another NIntendo of America decision that in their words "Angers up the core fanbase".

How many times can they make these decisions and expect the core fanbase to stick around?



ecco6t9 commented on Nintendo of America's Damon Baker Explains the...:

A whole lot of doublespeak that contradicts itself.

Anyways, It seems every time Nintendo of America makes a decision that will "affect the core audience" they make the decision that will affect the core audience on the possibility of the wider market maybe coming back. Meanwhile that "difficult decision" each and every time pushes more and more of the core fan base away.

Personally, I only upgraded to the new 3DSXL since after trading in my old one and a stack of games(That I now own digitally due to my then abundance of Club Nintendo coins) it cost me about $30 to upgrade.

I have to ask how is it "Nintendo needs to evolve." Rather than "The free ride is over."

Granted this is only the beta so it will change overtime, I am also thinking that Nintendo wants to watch out for comments that are negative to the brand. "Bayonetta 2 should be on a real console like the PS4."

To the Youtubers.
You read what others had done and you took the next step. You didn’t earn the knowledge for yourselves, so you don’t take any responsibility for it. You stood on the shoulders of geniuses to accomplish something as fast as you could and before you even knew what you had you patented it and packaged it and slapped it on a plastic lunchbox, and now you’re selling it, you want to sell it.

Sega has tragically been a shell of it's former self for a decade now. Somehow they have always been a company that has been mismanaged from 1988 till now.
They had a brief window of being properly managed(2000-2003), creating new games, and showing respect for their history and franchises.

Maybe if Sega just made a new Phantasy Star, Shining Force, Chu Chu Rocket, Jet Grind Radio, or Streets of Rage they would be in better shape.

Maybe Nintendo should of "recharged" Rare instead of selling them? One more team working on games that appealed to both the traditional fans and the more western style fans?

Or they could allow NST some leeway in developing western style games?

More so, if it were just this most of us probably would of shrugged it off. But Nintendo of America has done a lot of this for the past 9 years.

Ash, Soma Bringer, Fatal Frame, Captain Rainbow, Tingle, and several more that the fans were denied.

It leads us to two things. Nintendo of America is either incompetent at reading that "Nintendo fans want Nintendo games." Or they are spineless if it is in fact Nintendo of Japan deciding everything for them.

I hate to be cynical but to me it seems after Operation Rainfall worked (and proved NoA wrong) that Nintendo of America almost has a pure disdane for it's fanbase. Their attitude is almost "You people are lucky we are even releasing this here." And "We don't owe you an explanation."

Hell according to Reggie all those postcards, emails, tweets, phone calls, letters, have zero effect on what the fans want.

The downside to this is that we cannot have XSeed do Nintendo of America's job this time.



ecco6t9 commented on Nintendo of America Issues Non-Statement on th...:

It seems people have forgotten that the standard 3DS is clunky and sharp. Most people upgraded to the 3DS XL due to it being better designed.

This lack of a standard new 3DS has actually driven me into not buying Majora's Mask, Xenoblade, and the expected eventual release of Final Fantasy Explorers.



ecco6t9 commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

Usually Nintendo Directs dissapoint me when they never announce GBA games on the 3DS Virtual Console. But usually something is talked about that made the direct at least fun.

The lack of a standard size new 3DS feels like a kick in the stomach and Nintendo of America expecting $200 for the "burden" of having to release a new model.



ecco6t9 commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

It's a three pronged attack
Develop games in house.

Pick up niche games that are amazing but need a little of that "Nintendo Polish" like with Bayonetta.

Partner with proven 3rd parties for spinoffs in franchises like with Hyrule Warriors.(Hint let Treasure make a Wario Land 6 for 3DS.)



ecco6t9 commented on Genyo Takeda Discusses Nintendo's Hardware Future:

I do think that the new3DS is meant to carry the 3DS line until the end of the Wii U's life after which they will have the Next Nintendo that is a handheld/tablet/console hybrid.

Some of us do not buy both Nintendo's Handheld and Console, having one thing eliminates that issue and the fanbase issue of "That other device is getting all the games this year."

This will allow for more games at a quicker pace, since we will get one Kirby game as opposed to one Kirby on the handheld and one on the console a year or two later.
This could lead to more games in that franchise or allow Nintendo to revisit other franchises since they already made one Kirby game now let's make a Metroid or Ice Climbers game.



ecco6t9 commented on Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Heading to PAL R...:

This trailer actually makes me want to play the game. The graphics appear to have an odd charm to them that one would feel if they took Back to Nature/64 and simply made it in 3D.

I do hope for the next one we see A Wonderful Life style one and maybe even a GBC style one?
