Gerbwmu commented on This Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Box Art May Get...:

Will this come out on Wii U? I really hope so because I may jump in to Monster Hunter for it. I got a great deal on MH3 on Wii and enjoyed it but not enough to repurchase for the U. Hoping this makes it over too



Gerbwmu commented on Wii U and 3DS Hardware Sales See Slight Increa...:

And as if on queue...........Less then positive results for 1st quarter are followed up with decent sales news from Japan. Anyone know why the spike for Wii U and MK8? Are they having the same free game promotion as the rest of the world and a few people rushed out to get the free game in time?

Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta can't come out fast enough though......we need some fresh games for the Wii U



Gerbwmu commented on Reaction: Nintendo's Drop in Momentum Is A Big...:

3DS will move a lot of special editions for the pokemon remakes and MM3D will get announced probably for December. No way they reach the 3DS sales goal though.

Wii U will have a decent holiday though. I'd be shocked if they didn't hit the hardware goal for Wii U by the time December is over.

It is definitely time for a direct though. Time to start the pre-holiday hype train.



Gerbwmu commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

How many people in China have HDTV's? What % of the population can afford a dedicated gaming system for the price of a PS4 or XB1? How about localization costs? Yes Nintendo needs to get into the Chinese market but they already have a presence with iQue and I'm not sure Wii U would be the best solution. Maybe a Wii Mini is the way to go?



Gerbwmu commented on Bayonetta 2 Environmental Artist Outlines Sour...:

Pssshhh......those pictures are clearly not from a next gen camera.......I mean is it even a 4K image with 60fps on that photo?

Seriously PG seems to really be working to push the hardware and while pretty visuals isn't necessary for a good game, it is a nice bonus.



Gerbwmu commented on Mario Kart 8 Secures Place as Top-Selling SKU ...:

There are 13 retail exclusives due out for Wii U from now until the end of 2015 and that doesn't include Zelda U and Star Fox U which are tentatively scheduled for 2015. There are still a few games that we haven't heard anything from in a while as well like FE v SMT. I'm sure July and August will be lower but starting in September we should see decent numbers and a huge spike for the holiday. If they release all the titles in 2015 that are expected we should see decent sales through out.

Edit - Fatal Frame would be the 14th but still unknown about US/Europe release so I didn't include it



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (North America):

This is where I will defend Nintendo VC at least for a week. If a 3rd party is releasing something on the VC then Nintendo needs to let them have the week to themselves in hopes of pushing their product. Better sales will mean more options of 3rd party titles.

But Nintendo should be releasing more VC titles in general.



Gerbwmu commented on New Fatal Frame Will Be Spooking The Wii U In ...:

So, in Japan, August has Hyrule Warriors, then September has Bayonetta 1 & 2 and Fatal Frame. I wonder what hardware sales will look like as these games are released? Looks like Nintendo has a fairly strong exclusive lineup coming over the next 5 months.



Gerbwmu commented on Mercedes Reports a Boost in Interest Since Ann...:

@unrandomsam - obviously additional profit is the key. I have no idea how much more this advertisement cost over what they usually spend for the Japan market nor do I know how many units they normally sell but it won't take long for them to figure out if the ad was successful or not. If they stayed in their marketing budget and sales increased then they did their job.



Gerbwmu commented on First Impressions: Throwing Down in Shigeru Mi...:

@mushroomer - Project S.T.E.A.M. is being released on 3DS and seems to be well into development. This one however might never see the light of day. Although it seems like if it is far enough along to have a demo then doing a cheap release on eShop would be better then canceling it.



Gerbwmu commented on 3DS On Top As Wii U Remains Highest Selling Ho...:

I was hoping Wii U would stay in the 5 digits but hopefully Hyrule Warriors will boast it back up again for a while until Bayonetta arrives in Japan. As far as world wide goes.......Looks like we won't see any real push until we approach the holiday season in 4 months



Gerbwmu commented on British Tabloid The Sun Brands Gaming "As Addi...:

With facts like those who can argue their findings? Seriously anything can be addictive if you enjoy doing it. Books, TV, phone, religion, dangerous it is....well I don't think any of the above have the same ill effects as heroin.



Gerbwmu commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

He is absolutely right. There will be people who buy a Wii U because of this game. The question becomes how many? Hopefully its in the 10s of 1000s but more then likely it will be just in the 1000s. Either way I welcome them all to the community



Gerbwmu commented on The eShop Is "A Great Place To Be" And Packed ...:

@unrandomsam - it's all about perspective right?

I think 1 or 2 unique Indies per month, which is where the eShop seems to be heading, plus a Nintendo branded eShop release a few times a year makes for a decent amount of options when you also throw in ports and whatever else makes it to the eShop. Then again if I can play 2 hours of video games a week I'm doing well so I don't have time for what I have.



Gerbwmu commented on Exclusive: Getting Into Sync With Dead Pixel E...:

I'll hope for the best and wait on a review in 2015. Variety is good and I hope we see more different and unique experiences on the eShop. The more games the better chance each of us have to find a game we can't put down.



Gerbwmu commented on EA Explains Why It's Abandoning Dedicated Hand...:

EA needs to do what it thinks is best for it's business. Only time will tell if they are making the right decision but mobile seems like the easy cash grab these days. Free to play with micro transactions & ads plus a few $7 games add up. I just wonder how profitable it is for most companies. Seems to be very few successful ventures and a ton of failure.



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Our Weirdest And Most Wonderful Tomod...:

@MeloMan - ahhhhh the Olde English D!

This game seems crazy amusing but I just don't pick up the 3DS enough to spend the cash on it. Pretty much vacations are the only time the 3ds sees any action. If it was on the U and I could randomly go into it between other games or while sons are watching TV then I think I'd have bought it already.



Gerbwmu commented on Developers Outline The Creative Process for Cr...:

Looks like a fun game that is adding to a packed 2015 schedule and really a packed September 2014 on. It really would be neat to have a 4 player split screen version though....even if the local play was your team online or something. Probably asking too much though. This, X, Zelda, and maybe FE vs SMT all in 2015.....I need to start saving money.



Gerbwmu commented on The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan:

Ohhhhh.....The N64.....Back in the days when Nintendo had a stupid controller, no 3rd party support and inferior ports compared to their competition.....Loved my N64 and I still think the controllers were awesome......Makes me want to break it out and get a group of guys together for some WCW vs NWO, Mario Kart 64, and Turok multiplayer



Gerbwmu commented on Philips Secures Wii Patent Victory Over Ninten...:

Doesn't mean anything as of yet. Not until the appeal for UK anyway and may or may not change the lawsuit in US. People figuring this out will, in the end, come up with a solution. Either the decision will be overturned or Nintendo will pay royalties to Phillips. It happens in business. That's why companies have teams of lawyers
