gatorboi352 commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

"I have never played a Dynasty Warriors game but I love love LOVE the Zelda franchise.
I'm terrified of this game, tbh."

Probably the case for about 90% of Nintendo console owners.

gatorboi352 commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

"The drawback of this method is that the game's already 30 fps frame rate occasionally stutters, presumably because of having to stream two different views of the battlefield simultaneously."

And that, folks, is why MK8 only has split screen multiplayer.

@JaxonH

There's a simple answer to all of your points made: because Nintendo is no longer the player in this industry they once were.

Now, many (if not all) contributors to this site will probably disagree with me, but it's still the truth.

Nintendo does not demand respect from 3rd parties (especially western) any more. PlayStation. XBox. These are the names synonymous with gaming any more, like it or not.

I've said it a thousand times, I'll say it again: Nintendo, today, is the video game industry equivalent to what BlackBerry is to the cellphone industry. And that is, a big time player of yesteryear struggling to stay relevant in modern times.

Forgot this even existed. Just logged in, and the ability to see what friends are currently online is brilliant. WHY Nintendo, will you not incorporate that very feature into the Miiverse app as well?!

And while you're at it, add in the ability to send private messages on the Miiverse app, just like on the Wii U version.

"This title was made after seeing titles such as "The Letter" and "IQ Test" climbing the charts despite getting really low review scores."

This is all you need to read right there. Dude is a hack, and I'm sorry for ever having supported his games.

Basically he's saying "oh, so these other crappy devs want to make a quick buck making a blatantly bad game?! Well I will one up them in that department! Take THAT!"

To all of you saying the X1 has a smaller install base than Wii U:

1) it came out a full year later, and only trails 1.5 million behind at that.

2) have you all even seen the sales numbers for Minecraft on 360? X1 version a no brainer.

@Jellitoe "As long as they do not start making games exclusive for this system I am alright with it. But if they start making games exclusively tailored for this system, I will boycott Nintendo next few systems."

Hate to break it to you, but that's exactly what they intend on doing.

As someone who simply can't afford more than one system, but also a fan of Nintendo's 1st party titles, its just sad to see what has become of Wii U. A complete non-factor.

I want to enjoy some Madden in between my sessions of MK8. I can't. I want to enjoy some Destiny. I can't. I want to play the latest Call of Duty. I can't.

Nintendo used to RUN the industry, now they are the BlackBerry of the industry. Can't even get proper apps.

gatorboi352 commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

@vamkar That article you linked is crap. For instance:

"But Activision has yet to announce the Wii U version of Advanced Warfare. They will probably announce it when the game is almost ready to release. Why are they doing this? Because they don’t want dedicated COD fans to know that they can play COD online for FREE on the Wii U. A lot of them would buy a Wii U just for COD and Activision doesn’t want that."

That's pure conjecture, and false. Activision could not care less what system gamers play COD on. They do not receive a cut of the online fees that Xbox Gold and PS+ require.

Silly article.

"as another publisher restricting its Wii U support to family and accessible games."

Pretty ironic considering the entire premise of Wii U originally was to cater to a more 'core' gamer.

2 years in, this system is almost a complete failure from an execution stand point.

@zool

"The high scores in the polls reflect the type and age of the gamer that votes and I guess they will buy the toys."

It also reminds us that this is a Nintendo fan site after all :)

Put this poll on IGN or Joystiq or Polygon and you'll get much more realistic result sets.

@DefHalan "but The Letter isn't finished, the developer is very vocal about that."

Well then it shouldn't have been released FOR PAY on the eShop yet. Post release patches and/or additional DLC is one thing. What the dev of The Letter did and is trying to do is just a sham. Worked out lovely for him though. All that bad pub has people flocking to his game and the Miiverse community.

I think this article is much ado about nothing because of one simple reason: the typical Wii U owner. The typical Wii U owner who would, in turn, be accessing said eShop, is a Nintendo loyalist and by design extremely aware of many to all offerings on the platform. There are no casuals here (at least any substantial number of them). This isn't a Wii situation about to happen all over again (retail based shovelware by the truck load).

For the most part, the only real issue here is "The Letter" and the author of this article even details as much. It's a rare anomaly, whereas many of the other bad eggs referenced aren't really doing anything in regards to generating good or bad publicity.

@Beetlejuice you are right in many of your points, except one. You can Facetime on it, just, only with other Wii U owners.

If Nintendo somehow inked a deal with Skype or something similar that could open up the video chatting options, that would be legit.

The lack of instant messaging is maddening though. I shouldn't have to go into Miiverse to send a private message, and to see who replied back to my PM as well.

And like others have said, the fact that its "tethered" to the console itself makes this all a moot point. Quite honestly, the range on the Pad is atrocious. Even worse, the developers behind the wireless tech said before the Wii U even launched that theoretically the ability to "repeat" the distance in the range of the signal is a simple OS update away, if Nintendo wanted to.

"and second-screen gaming promised big things."

The problem is, in actuality, second screen gaming just confuses the crap out of people. Wiimote swinging, they get. Looking at two screens back and forth a lot, they don't.

Hence why Nintendo's focus as of late has been to make gaming on the Pad alone an emphasis. Quick Start menu, game trailers in the eShop only highlighting game play being played on the GamePad, etc..

gatorboi352 commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

It ain't just kids. In my experiences, full grown men that I've never seen talk about video games are playing them on their newly acquired smart phones and tablets.

I personally know of 8 guys in the military (1 of which is my bro in law) that all talked each other into playing Clash of Clans together. None of these people own a traditional video game console.

The tides of change are real, people. Wake up and take the blinders off. You all sound like BlackBerry fanatics around the time the first few iPhones came out.
