This game looks incredible, though I am a little wary regarding the online component. I do think it was a mistake not to include voice chat for those that want it, and the decision to hold back the ranked option - mentioned recently here on NL - is a case of unnecessary nannying. Those things withstanding, I hope this game ends up being all it can be, I'm certainly excited. Gotta love Nintendo.



luke88 commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

@Dark-Luigi umm, not at all sure I agree with your analogy, we are talking about a multiplayer game here; not just 'a game,' as you said. I think, in this day and age, online options In a predominately multiplayer game better equate to the ice cream or the cone - to borrow your analogy - as opposed to sprinkles. That's how it is for me anyway. I just can't get 4/5 people together to play mario party anymore. I would've enjoyed playing this game online, with full voice chat.

" A delayed game is eventually good, but a rushed game is forever bad. "

Let's hope the proviso above proves true in this case. I'm certainly looking forward to the game.

Hoped this article might include some kind of hint about the release date for affordable space adventures: so excited for that game. I think It's going to be incredible, really hope it gets a serious marketing push from nintendo.

I wonder what "voluntary retirement" means, and what life would be like for employees, targeted for it, that refuse whatever package is offered.

Also brings this to mind: “If we reduce the number of employees for better short-term financial results, employee morale will decrease,” he said during an investor Q&A. “I sincerely doubt employees who fear that they may be laid off will be able to develop software titles that could impress people around the world.” - Satoru Iwata.

I'd be very happy to continue to use both my 3ds and my wiiu for another 3-4 years at least, provided quality games continue to be released for both. I'm in no rush to upgrade, but obviously will do anyway as soon as Nintendo release new hardware.

@AugustusOxy So if women do not want to be subjected to sexual harassment, or won't accept or ignore sexual harassment, they shouldn't go to tournaments?

Is that what you mean by this comment: "Tournaments are filled with smack talk, bad talk, and all sorts of other unpleasant things. Don't like it, don't go to them.".

@Alex_Olney Hi Alex, having read this, I just popped down to GAME on my lunch break. I can confirm that, at least according to the guy in my local GAME store, this deal is not and never has been available 'in store.' Was pretty disappointing. Where did you hear this deal was offered in stores?



luke88 commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Like many here it seems, judging from the negative comments/poll contradiction, I don't think its a particularly great idea but I'd certainly buy one; because I love NIntendo.

I don't think it's a good idea though.

@FritzFrapp very interesting point that, I hadn't really considered it in that way. Guess it was always going to be hard to judge demand.

A lot of the 'sold out' press being garnered is also probably quite beneficial; can't remember hearing anything like it with anything wii u related before.
