How would you know if a game is crap or not before reviewing it? don't revieweres are supposed to keep an open mind before trying anything even movie tie ins shovelware....... Its not their fault that Wii U gets shovelware

Ubisoft decides to delay Watch Dogs on Wii U and release firs the versions that are ready and fanboys call them the Devil..... Nintendo does the same thign and everyone defends the decision even if it hurts the Wii U much more than the Watch Dog delays



ferthepoet commented on EA Boss Peter Moore Apologises For Frostbite's...:


Not really the Wii U's problem is that its demographic at this point is hardcore nintendo fans who are willing to buy a console for the next mario and zelda no matter what and ultra hardcore gamers who buy every console on principle...... It doesn't have the regular gamers who just want to buy a single console and expect access to a wide variety of games from a variety of developers and it doesn't have the casual crowd that made the original Wii a success either......



ferthepoet commented on New Watch_Dogs Trailer Highlights a Living, Br...:

lol before the Wii U delay, all comments on Watch Dogs on this site were about how great the game was going to be..... now everybody seems to think it would suck (I've never been interested since I don't like sandbox type games)



ferthepoet commented on Feature: Looking at the 3DS Revolution on its ...:

what 3DS has going for it its awesome third party support, the third party support is so great it can make up for all Nintendo screws ups (games tied to console, region lock, ect)..... the fact that its cheaper to develop for allows it to have third party exclusives which are just not viable in other platforms

I don't even really know what the OUYA situation is but I know that at this point the odds of Wii U getting a port of a major multiplatform release not named Skylanders, Disney Infitnity, Lego Something or Just Dance are barely better than those of the OUYA

You do know this is a complete separate genre? this is a 2D beat em up, not a 1 on 1 fighter..... It's like streets of rage or final fight, not like street fighter or tekken.... that's why I like 2D Beat'em ups is a genre that has been lackign quality entries as of late, if it was a 1 on 1 fighter I wouldn't care because as you mention there is no shortage of quality entries in that genre



ferthepoet commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

if they want to do cross buy or vc being multiplat (which is two different things) that's good but its up to then......but having you lose hundreds of dollar on digital games only because your system stopped working is just a violation of consumer rights and unaceptable (yah I know if you are in a major market you can send your console back to nintendo but what about those of us who aren't)

They don't like Nintendo but those are not the reasons the reasons are:

1. Stood by Power PC when developers wanted all consoles to switch to X86 to make multi-plat development cheaper.

2. Underpowered, not powerful enough to bring PS3/360 games by brute force requiring actual porting work and not powerful enough to port Xbone/ps4 games

3. A user based comprised primarily of Nintendo hardcore fans who don't seem to like buying games not by Nintendo.

not surprising they have said they would focus on licensing their properties to third parties than on making the games themselves, it makes sense from their point of view, less risk..... good thing is if they are not making games themselves they be more willing to licence capcom to do remakes of older games



ferthepoet commented on Disney Infinity Executive Producer Discusses W...:

off all videogame trends this is the one I hate the most, really paying 60 for a game then having to buy toys to unlock the content, people complain about DLC or microtransactions but this one is the worst.....and people want Nintendo to do this with pokemon, I hope they never do, or at least not on a mainline pokemon game



ferthepoet commented on Dedicated Video Game Platforms To Remain Ninte...:

Nintendo can make a big comeback next gen in the home console area as well as retain their dominance on the handheld market however they need to get 5 things right .

1. Third Party Support
2. Powah
3. Account System
4. Region Free
5. No gimmicks

If they get all those rights there are no reasons why they cannot return to their SNES era greateness



ferthepoet commented on Nintendo UK Launches a New "Nintendo Girls Clu...:

@edhe I've noticed handhelds are more popular with girls and women than with men.. reason 3DS and Vita are not really pocket friendly but they fit perfectly in purse...

Now the problem is not that they are marketing to girls that's a good idea... the problem is the way they are going about it, which is so stereotypical is likely to be more alienating to female gamers than effective
