Henmii commented on Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Exposé Reveals Torrid St...:

"The game's head designer was unceremoniously fired, and was blamed by NST's senior Japanese management for the failure of the project. They seemingly took no personal responsibility"

Yup, sounds like Nintendo Japan! Even after the Wii u debacle, they lay the blame on the consumer: They didn't understand the device! The consumer also doesn't understand that Federation force is MUCH better then a proper Metroid. Of course Nintendo themselfes do nothing wrong! That bodes very well for NX!



Henmii commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

"Another element of the report which sets alarm bells ringing is the claim that Nintendo hopes to ship an astonishing 20 million NX consoles in its first year of sale"

Its possible....if it is a smartphone, wich isn't unlikely!



Henmii commented on Nintendo NX Will Avoid The Launch Issues Which...:

At first I was thinking that NX would be a homeconsole/handheld hybrid. But if that would be the case, Nintendo could only cash once (only NX, otherwise 1 handheld and 1 homeconsole). Unless Nintendo pulls a Apple and releases a new version of NX every 6 months!



Henmii commented on We Can't Release Virtual Console Games Any Fas...:

Only Nintendo would moan about the amount of work they need to do to get all the old games on the e-shop. Nintendo is also the only company who moans about HD games being hard to make. Other company's don't moan, they just do!

Nintendo lives in a whole other dimension....



Henmii commented on Talking Point: The Mystery of Devil's Third an...:

Nintendo probably remembered their disgust for mature games. Or there is some stuff in it that really goes to far for Nintendo's tastes (stuff more extreme then Bayonetta 1 and 2 or Ninja gaiden 3).

Personally I am not affected, since the game looks extremely dumb and rubbish to me. I won't pick this up!



Henmii commented on Review: WarioWare Twisted! (GBA):


It must be a urban legend, because I DID see it in a shop back in the day. And I am sure it was a European version. The thing is, it got released very late because of a dispute regarding the gyrosensor. The American gyrosensor technology wasn't accepted in Europe, so they had to change it!



Henmii commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

We all know that Nintendo and co will shout again that THIS TIME the third-party's are on board/stay on board. Don't believe them immediately, and just look what will happen. If you believe them 100% you might get dissapointed again!



Henmii commented on Interview: Warren Spector Discusses Game Choic...:

Haven't read it yet, but when I read his pieces I think most of the time: He is better with his mouth then with game-development. As far as I know its years ago that he for the last time released something substantial!

I don't diss his personality though. He seems a pretty nice guy. Its just that he doesn't make good games anymore.



Henmii commented on Review: WarioWare Twisted! (GBA):

I won this game in a UK magazine, and loved every second of it. It was the American version that I got, and I was extremely lucky since it took ages before they released it in Europe!



Henmii commented on Nintendo Board Members Retain Roles After AGM ...:

A pity! Iwata must stay, but all the other should be swiped of the board. Give them other roles, while putting other people in the board. Because Iwata "wise men" have made some VERY unwise choices the last years!!



Henmii commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Promises...:

I can't imagine all the gameplay being in dungeons. I guess it will be like Four swords adventures: A overworld, cut into bite-sized (level) pieces!

As for the length of the game: I guess there will be A Lot of different suits, so if you want to get all the materials you need to craft those clothes (I heard you can either buy or create clothes, and some materials are only obtainable via the Colloseum) it may take you lots of time.



Henmii commented on Exclusive: We Almost Got A Wii U F-Zero Create...:

I only believe half of it. The thing is, Nintendo Europe (or Nintendo America for that matter) doesn't have any power. Sure they can ask Criterion a favor, but it would only annoy Nintendo of Japan. Nintendo Japan is ALWAYS calling the shots!



Henmii commented on Tablets Stole The Wii U's Thunder, Laments Shi...:

"I think unfortunately what ended up happening was that tablets themselves appeared in the marketplace and evolved very, very rapidly, and unfortunately the Wii [U] system launched at a time where the uniqueness of those features were perhaps not as strong as they were when we had first begun developing them"

I see it differently: You guys created a tablet-controller BECAUSE tablets where popular! And failed gigantically because people already bought Apple's and really didn't want a home-console with a tablet-controller!



Henmii commented on Muppets Creator Responsible For Those Amazing ...:

Awesome puppets, though I find the Miyamoto-one a bit scary. He looks a bit to young. I can imagine some collectors hunting around the internet to get those puppets.

Though Nintendo maybe could have better spend that money on a proper 3D Metroid on Wii u or better Starfox-graphics!



Henmii commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:

"Mr. Iwata is in Japan and what he's trying to do is help explain to consumers in Japan what's going on at E3"

This the second time I hear this (first time from Iwata himself). If they are talking about gamers (E3 is for gamers, other people don't follow E3) then I am wondering: Is there not a single person in Japan who understands E3 and understands English? Sure this can't be the case?! Or is it just Iwata's never ending need of just explaining everything: "this is a game. It has platforms".

Man, what a load of nonsense!



Henmii commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

After reading the whole piece: It really sounds half-baked. At this point they maybe could better give the entire game to Platinum, fire Miyamoto from the job, and release it on NX instead.

Hmm, I voted "Want" even if I had serious doubts (I just really want a new Starfox), but now its definitely a maybe.



Henmii commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

"And even Zelda. Dressing up Link in different outfits? Is it because that kind of thing sells in Japan"

The thing is, Nintendo always gives priority to the Japanese fans. If Japanese people love dressing up people in games, then yes Nintendo goes for it. Even if it makes western people roll their eyes.

Me, I find it strange. And I was never a dressing up fan. But I'll give it a chance. At least every suit comes with its own benefits, and it may be fun to collect (maybe).



Henmii commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

I don't write the game 100% of at the moment, since it could still be fun (and its made by Next level games, who made the awesome Luigi's mansion 2). But I fear they are wasting their time/money/talent here. It looks more like a Lego game (you know, with those action-figures, I forgot the name). They should have called it differently, but I guess someone at Nintendo said: Lets slap Metroid on it. Not only that, but they also slapped the holy "Prime" title on it.

The point is: If Nintendo ALSO showed a new, very cool, real Metroid on Wii u and/or 3DS, people would be less harsh about this title. But now that they only revealed this title, people feel like Nintendo laughs in their faces!
