Mahe commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

Nintendo has always produced also bad games, like Clu Clu Land or FlingSmash, but on Wii U and partially the 3DS, they've put out a whole slew of stinkers. There's no point listing them all and what's wrong with them, it's just painfully obvious that the quality of Nintendo-published games has dropped like a rock in the past few years. Lately, a good Nintendo-published game has been a very rare occasion.



Mahe commented on Review: Just Dance 2016 (Wii U):

Note: If you want World Dance Floor, it's still there in last-gen versions, like the Wii.

How is Just Dance 2016 "incredibly online focused" when World Dance Floor was replaced with the clumsy and limited whatever video thingy mode on current-gen platforms?



Mahe commented on Nintendo Download: 15th October (North America):

Despite the Wii's age, it wouldn't be surprising if there was still a sizable chunk of owners using it for Netflix, Youtube and now Crunchyroll besides games and other apps. I know a few people like that.

The Wii Remote offers a better interface than smart TVs and their remotes, for one.



Mahe commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Share Prices Return to...:

Investors are probably also hoping that Kimishima can lead NX away from the problems that plagued 3DS and Wii U. But with so little known about the new platform, many are worried that Nintendo might fumble again.

@Sean_Aaron If you only have Just Dance 2 & 4 (+ DLC), you're missing out on a ton of great tracks. Not only tracks from previous games you don't own, like Eye of the Tiger, That's the Way I Like It, I Feel Love and No Limit, but also stuff from newer games, like Starships, Could You Be Loved, Follow the Leader, Bang Bang, Diamonds and Happy. Just to name a few. And that's in addition to all the new tracks in the Just Dance 2016 main game.

So even if you have some tracks featured in JD Unlimited in JD2 or JD4, that only makes a dent in the whole selection offered by JD2016 and JD Unlimited. Assuming the game and the service are up to the quality standard set by the previous Just Dance games, but they sure should be.

@abe_hikura Just Dance 2015 sold 4 million, and lots of those were on Wii. This just goes to show that Nintendo abandoned Wii too early. They could have made bank by releasing some Wii games in 2013 and even later. But even their "Nintendo Selects" budget line did very well. There are still lots of Wii owners out there looking for games.



Mahe commented on Video: The Just Dance Unlimited Subscription S...:

@Tsurii Just Dance 2016 is 50 bucks on Wii U. (40 on Wii, but that doesn't have JD Unlimited.)

And you don't have to pay for JD Unlimited if you don't want to. The free month will already give you a huge amount of playtime, and that's combined with how long-lasting the Just Dance base game is. For your initial purchase, you now get more to play and more playtime than ever before in the JD series.



Mahe commented on Core Console Market Bigger Than Ever, Despite ...:

A lot of Wii owners have migrated to PlayStation 4, because PS4 is where the new games are. And then there are the Wii holdouts who still enjoy that great console - Just Dance still sells a whole lot more on Wii than Wii U!



Mahe commented on Review: Baila Latino (Wii U eShop):

Yup, seems like a cheap knockoff of Just Dance. With all the Just Dance games still available for Wii, and Just Dance 2016 heading to Wii U and Wii in October, there's really no reason to give this a shake.



Mahe commented on FreezeME, Coming to Wii U, Looks Rather Simila...:

Wiimote & Nunchuk controls were one important feature which made the Mario Galaxy games better than their predecessors. This probably won't feature controls like in the Galaxy games, so how it looks is irrelevant.

@rjejr Hah. Nice of you to remember that, I guess. The Wii Mini was a shoddy downgrade though, a Gamepad-less Wii U would be an upgrade of course!

As for Just Dance upgraders, there's not a whole lot that Wii U or the other HD consoles have offered before, at least. Just Dance has a graphical style that scales up pretty well to big flatscreen TVs even on Wii's SD resolution, and there are still a huge number of people with Wiis in use. This Just Dance Unlimited thing could spur some upgrades, but then again, Wii has the whole massive Just Dance back catalog available as disc releases. The thing with the Wii releases is, it's easy to take those discs to anybody who still has a Wii - or a Wii U! If you buy the Wii U version, then you have a lot less people who have the console and thus can play that version.



Mahe commented on Just Dance 2016 is Bringing Its Funky Moves to...:

@rjejr There have been several free DLC tracks over the course of the Just Dance series, some of which are even still available. The paid DLC tracks have also been fairly popular. Just Dance 3 even had that Mario track!

The online mode has also been completely free on Wii and other consoles where there's no separate subscription. The online mode still sees a lot monthly, weekly and even daily players, even in JD2014, so obviously the fans just don't get tired of Just Dance.

And what's more is that Ubisoft is hosting the Wii online mode for Just Dance on their own servers, so it wasn't affected when Nintendo's own Wii online services were cut off.

Wooooww, Just Dance Unlimited sounds great!

@TurboPikachu Have you played the latest Just Dance games on Wii? They're actually pretty great. And they have the best controller, the Wii Remote!

Just Dance 2015 sold most on Wii, and it sold a lot. The same might even continue with JD2016.



Mahe commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

"Guitar Hero Live is something of a comeback for the franchise, which became massively popular during the PlayStation 2 era but faltered during the last console war."

What? Nintendolife offering some of their revisionist history again. The Guitar Hero series did start on PS2, but it was in the Wii/etc. generation that it really started becoming popular, especially with Guitar Hero 3. The oversupply of guitar games further into the generation was what killed the genre for a while, when Activision and EA were pumping out half a dozen guitar games, add-ons and spin-offs a year (did anybody really need Guitar Hero Van Halen or Lego Rock Band?)
