Kyloctopus commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@SetupDisk There's a difference between making a new console and making a new platform though.
A new platform requires grabbing a new audience, it requires alot of new resources (especially if you're going to compare to the Atari days) and it requires a unique dev team. It might also mean acquiring a new company.
We do know Nintendo did acquired a mysterious company for $100 Million that might be related to QOL, and if so, that alone can set apart the difference between a new platform and a new console.

Kyloctopus commented on Standard 3DS Consoles Will Have Limited Online...:

Anyone who claims they're doing this on purpose is just being silly.
Miiverse and Nintendo Photo uploader to them is free advertisement for Smash, and no one would ever consider sharing Smash Bros. photos as a selling point to the 3DS.

@micronean Regardless, Sony and Microsoft were at Fan Expo, and packed plenty of Demos. They could've easily brought one of their Smashfest Best Buy Demos to Fan Expo, and the line would've been a great way to grab attention. Unfortunately, they didn't even have a booth.

Kyloctopus commented on Soapbox: Fan Expo 2014 - A Nintendo Fan's Expe...:

There were 2 Disney Infinity demos there. The one you went to, and a barebones one at the Big Hero Six booth, which exclusively had characters from Disney's upcoming animation. And when I mean barebones, I mean the person that made the toybox made it so unappealing. Infinity has a good prebuilt Toy Box, this one was flat and too big.
I got to play Starwhal there. I even got to ask one of the developers when the Wii U version is coming out. He said that it will release after the Playstation versions of the game. He also claimed that an incentive to play the Wii U version of Starwhal was because you'll be able to play the hilarious game with your old Wii Remotes (never talked about Gamepad usage, but I'm not expecting anything crazy, other than Off-Tv Play).
What I find interesting is that there may be no Nintendo booth at Fan Expo, but they were actually at the Toronto CNE, while Fan Expo was going on. The CNE the biggest fair in Canada that can grab as many as 1 Million people a year. They actually went there to show off Mario Kart 8. Last year, there were playable demos of Super Mario 3D World. Keep in mind that this wasn't released at the time. Nintendo has always chosen a braud audience over a group of gamers, so the fact that they're at the biggest fair in Canada, over the biggest Gaming (and more) Convention in Canada doesn't surprise me.
On a side note: When I was at Fan Expo I streetpassed with over 100 people in one day!

Kyloctopus commented on Watch Dogs Stares at a November Release Date o...:

Yeah. It seems strange to not show Wii U footage.
I guess its because they don't want to push people away with just how it looks.
I'm not going to boycott Ubisoft, because a game like this is a big gamble that is costing them millions. Plus, at one point Ubisoft had more games released on the system than Nintendo.

Kyloctopus commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

Even if The Letter and IQ Test are awful, at least it's original, and they didn't strive to make a crappy game. TreeFall didn't have the resources they needed and NinjaPig's game is actually somewhat entertaining.
Who would want to buy this game when Flappy Bird is $0.00?
This campaign was launched, so crappy games won't sell well again and it's 1000% justified. Similar to Operation Platinum raising the idea that mature games can sell well.
I'm never usually this pessimistic, but I hope your game fails, because its a terrible excuse from a developer and doesn't deserve a penny.

Kyloctopus commented on Video: Watch These Teenagers As They're Expose...:

@AkDeath Doesn't matter. She's a successful actress on a popular show and is rumoured to be in The Last of Us movie. She has a fanbase of thousands, and will likely peak to hundreds of thousands (if not, millions because as an actress she is taking the right steps).
But it isn't right to judge her on her hat and a face anyways. That's called stereotyping and it only brings the human race steps backwards.

Kyloctopus commented on Video: Watch These Teenagers As They're Expose...:

Very interesting, kind of cute.
When you're 16 years old, you have absolutely no reason to know what a NES is. I don't blame these people. My brother is 20 and its fair to say he won't recognize a NES or a SNES when he sees one.
I think the only comment I actually loathed was ironically the teen, blindly preferring SMB to the modern Mario game (including Galaxy 2 and 3D World). Geez.

Kyloctopus commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (North America):

I've been meaning to get back into Infinity for the past few days. Glad to see they're offering a free version. Turns another one of my retail games to downloadable titles, and I'm cool with that.
I'm just hoping all the save data from my disk gets transfered to the DL version, but even then, it's not much. I wasn't a huge toy box builder.

Kyloctopus commented on The Man Responsible For Reviving Nintendo's Re...:

The guy wasn't given alot to deal with. Just a console that was seriously underperforming, but he did a lot of work getting the Wii U to it's indie welcoming status. I think Nintendo will continue the support and follow Dan's ways. But it's really hard to tell, because I don't know the bureaucracy within Nintendo.

Kyloctopus commented on The Legend of Zelda Monopoly Dated for 15th Se...:

Wow! Even the Oracle games get some love in this board.
My family and friends love Monopoly. We've bought so many different Monopoly variations: Original, 50th Anniversary, Vegas, Shrek, Jr, Disney, World, Cities, Canada, The Walking Dead. Heck, I just bought Monopoly Empire last week!
So, it's no doubt I'm going to buy this on day 1.

Kyloctopus commented on Talking Point: Deconstructing Nintendo's Retai...:

I've made a thread about it before, and I'll say it again: The Wii U eShop is lacking on original games - something it's thrived on in the Wiiware DSiware and even in the 3DS eShop does it have original titles.
Dr. Luigi, Pushmo 2, Pokemon Rumble U, Art Academy Sketchpad, Mario VS. Donkey Kong 6 all of it fits in sequels or new variations. Where are the original titles like Harmoknight and the Art Style games? No, it's not vital to the Wii U's life, but I'm not forking my money over to sequels of games I already played because that's not what the Wii U is about.

Kyloctopus commented on QOL Trademark Filings Point to Quality of Life...:

From what it sounds like, it seems like something that can draw consumers.
The Touch Generation games definitely stood out in the consumer's eyes considering how big Brain Age, Wii Fit and Art Academy turned. But honestly, it's much better if they took their own space, and drew away from Nintendo's handheld and home consoles.
1. It's these games that drew the DS to popularity, and it's these ideas that grew the DS and Wii into success, and I think Nintendo wants a taste of that 7th Generation success in the 8th Generation and onwards, while being able to maintain a gamer focus as well.
2. This will maintain Nintendo's gamer focus for future consoles. Never will future consoles from Nintendo have a general audience. It will have a more gamer focus, and might be able to get the 3rd Parties back into Nintendo's hands.
It seems like Nintendo will now split their completely general audience into 2 groups: Those that come for games, and those that come to get fit. With this Berlin Wall of an idea. And I think it's genius.

Kyloctopus commented on Areal Campaign Suspended By Kickstarter:

Considering it took $75,000 to make the most basic form of Shovel Knight and $500,000 to make Renegade Kid's FPS, I highly question of anyone can make a "AAA" multiconsole FPS with only $50,000

Kyloctopus commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

I'm sick of ignorant users talking as if all that's on mobile devices is utter crap. There are some really great games on phones and I hope Tim Stamper can improve the industry's look from people like the average Nintendo Lifer.

Kyloctopus commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I've played almost all of them, but I've only completed 3. :/
So really I can only decide from Ocarina of Time 3D, Phantom Hourglass and Four Swords Aniversary.
I'll go with Ocarina of Time 3D. Had I completed Wind Waker HD or Link's Awakening however, I'd probably pick one of those.

Spelled "peek" as "pEAk"
Is this a hint at EA being a third party for the Wii U again, and we'll see Amiibo for Madden, Dragon Age and Plants VS. Zombies games?
I guess we'll find out at Hyper Japan.
Oh no, it was just a typo. ;)

Kyloctopus commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

Looks like he learned a couple money making tips before leaving Capcom.
Why should we fund an animation, for a game we haven't even played? For all we know, Mighty Number 9 could be trash. Since he became independent, he has only made one title that was favored critically. Yet his other 2 titles. Yaiba, and Bugs VS. Tanks were critically panned (and as an owner of Bigs VS. Tanks, I can agree with the reviewers).
If you wanted an animation for your game, that would have made a great stretch goal.
