erv commented on Chasing Aurora Dev Broken Rules Offers To Port...:
Well their code must be better than their game design. I bought chasing aurora and can hardly believe that was even meant as a game.
erv commented on Download Sales Continue to Increase to New Hig...:
Digital only for me. If they start having better sales a bit more frequently I'd be buying lots more I think.

I'm up for it. Let's try that stuff out

It's a stopgap. It artificially prolongs the life of the console.

erv commented on IHS Technology Adds to Speculation of an NX Po...:
@eaglebob345 actually, that's how I never got into the 3ds. I had the dsi and it was underused for that very reason, but when the 3ds hit, I kept on thinking about the inevitable upgrade - now known as the n3ds - that would make me like the system for its potential.
Now that it's here, I'm not going to do the dsi thing all over again. Nintendo actually marketed a fan away from the 3ds generation in my case.

Nice. Downloading now:)
erv commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Do You Most Wa...:
I'm very impressed with Nintendo land. I really loved that game and hope to see more of that with the next system.
erv commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. Planned as NX Launch...:
Sigh. Once the announcement is real, nintendo can get back from rumoured to be doomed to just being doomed for a while. Makes things so much easier.
erv commented on The Game Lineup for EVO 2016 Has Been Announced:
@Senario brawl was the best. Ever.
erv commented on Video: Collecting Every Wii Game Is Difficult,...:
Well at least he has little kings story.
erv commented on Talking Point: Online Gaming Can't Recreate th...:
Local play is awesome, online is better. I like the combinations mostly: I like being able to hook up with one person on the other end, while I join in with 2 on mine, for instance.
Both have its value, but the best games and longest amounts of fun have been the online ones.
erv commented on Site News: Retiring Our Super Mario Maker Cour...:
I liked it but the official channel is much better because integration. I might get back into designing some more sometime.
After xenoblade bwahahahahahaaaaa

Warrior of dearth!

Vr is excluding you from your environment. Not something for Nintendo in philosophy.
Check out holo lens from Microsoft. That concept would work wonders.
erv commented on Tatsumi Kimishima Is Aiming To Quadruple Ninte...:
You're not a tekken boss to go for anything less than the 9 hit perfect combo.

Somebody died. Stock prices are down. Sales numbers look bleak.
How can I ever enjoy xenoblade like this? I just can't explore the planet knowing the sales aren't up to spec!
erv commented on Catalis Group Acquires Curve Digital To Create...:
Well that's an oxymoron. Indies as part of a powerhouse that serves publishing duties.
That is the exact description of non-indie.
erv commented on Analysis: Assessing Why NX Needs to Take Over ...:
Looking at the half way numbers, they're not nearly half way there. Meaning, they'll miss target.
Investors respond to the downward possibility of profitability. Thus, they make more sense than this article.
I have faith in Nintendo and may hold some stock at these prices. They're cheap and Nintendo could release anything and still be better off than it is today, so it's one way to beat the market as a fan.
erv commented on Japanese Analyst Claims NX Could Launch As Ear...:
@Grumblevolcano ah ok. I'm very curious about the way Nintendo is going to handle this one. I guess our friend right now is time
@Damo I think you are very right with that statement there.
2016 feels like it could be the year nintendo presses the big "company reset button" and pops out very different from what we know it to be.
@Grumblevolcano that used to be the case. Nowadays, it's incredibly hard to keep attention and hype at adequate levels for a long period of time. A shorter timespan between showoff and getting it in consumers hands would benefit it. Nintendo hints as much, with them stating they'll now focus on what you can buy soon, instead of years down the line, within their media presence.
erv commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Can Exploit Its Rich H...:
They can, but I'll be mostly absent from buying. I don't usually buy to support our endorse, but am very aware that you vote with your wallet.
I'm buying the great new stuff. And discounts on captain toad.
erv commented on Happy New Year from Nintendo Life:
Happy new year all, love this site and everyone in the community. My favorite place to go to for everything gaming related by far.
erv commented on Editorial: Linkle May be a Clunky Introduction...:
You know, at some point Nintendo is going to have lots of games again. That's gonna be odd for you guys.

erv commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Metroid Fu...:
I still have this loaded in my game boy micro to fire up on a long trip to a client's place. Seriously, this is handheld gaming perfecting:)
erv commented on Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima Has Publi...:
I still think his name sounds like a badass character from tekken.
erv commented on Nintendo Download: 24th December (North America):
Can't believe galaxy is a 2007 game. Whoa time flies when you're having fun!
erv commented on Nintendo Download: 24th December (Europe):
I bought darksiders for that price at the previous sale but haven't had a chance to give it some love. I'm sure I'll enjoy it.
Legend of kay seems like a fun platformer for that price.
erv commented on Editorial: Gamers Remember and Celebrate Sator...:
Iwata was legendary. I am thankful he was part of our gaming journeys.
erv commented on Splatoon Developers on the Future of Splatoon ...:
Splatoon is pure genius. I hope to see more of it in the future some time
erv commented on Nintendo NX Doesn't Need To Compete With PlayS...:
As long as they don't need to support two separate systems they'll win in the operational department.
erv commented on Nintendo Download: 17th December (Europe):
That curve digital sale is legendary!
I'm spending a couple just to get most of these. What a sale!
erv commented on Nintendo Remains Bullish Around the 3DS and It...:
It's corporate speak for "the end is in sight". We'll see the next handheld within a year.
erv commented on Fascinating Patent Shows Nintendo Portable Uti...:
If nintendo throws its weight in it I'm buying. I like the concept.
erv commented on Video: Soothe Your Soul With Some of the Calme...:
The music in this game is really great. It's a strong artistic choice, to the point I've seen in the game as of now
erv commented on A 'Big' Nintendo Announcement is Coming on Monday:
They'll be announcing doom.
erv commented on NX Won't Be The Next Version Of Wii Or Wii U, ...:
@bloody_velvet don't worry splatoon will be upgraded with spawn points, realistic paints, kill cams and voice actors and chat. It's gonna be revolutionary.
Nx is quite heavily referenced as the next console - not the next handheld. Just saying.
erv commented on Monster Hunter X Has Passed 2 Million Units Sh...:
I hope nintendo will buy the franchise, or capcom altogether.
We need more monster hunter goodness and boy, are they selling it. I'm a huge fan as well, the first one to grace the new nintendo systems I'll buy in a heartbeat.
erv commented on Digital Foundry Gives Xenoblade Chronicles X a...:
All those fps and awesome p's.
erv commented on Rumour: NX Set for 2016 Release With Nintendo ...:
Eh, people, it could very well be a handheld. NX was even mentioned in contrast to mobile phone development.
If it is, I just hope they keep the 3d.
erv commented on Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U):
Forget skells. How long does it take to meet the neck testicle creatures?
erv commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd December (Europe):
Ow yeah, xenoblade download all the way!
See you again in summer, guys.

I analysed doomed the other day. I came up with a mountain, a cannonball, Nintendo and Armageddon.
Let's analyse reasonable next.

Buying download anyway, but it's a hint to the future. Optical isn't gonna cut it.
