"was blamed by NST's senior Japanese management for the failure of the project. They seemingly took no personal responsibility"

Nintendo (a.k.a Miyamoto's play house) in a nutshell: "if we succeed, we are genious. If we fail, it's because marketing/they didn't get it/they are not japanese".

Thanks @megalink I am tired of "journalists", including Nintendo ones, still painting Nintendo as the villain while it was Sony who pretty f****ed up and Nintendo just defended themselves.

Anyway, this is an amazing finding. But I guess it would be succesful seeing how many CD-ROM add-ons failed.

A lot of people compare the Wii U to the Dreamcast. I don't see it. I see it more simmilar to the Sega Saturn.

Both are succesors to very succesful consoles (the Wii was successful, you like it or not), were aimed at the "hardcore" gamers and fanboys, its launch price was a pricey and its' lineup was full of ports, had a small but good library or games in its lifetime, it is remembered fonldy by gamers and it made lose faith ib the brand.

Dreamcast failed because it was aimed at the PS users that didn't give a damn. Let's hope the NX doesn't make that mistake.

The HUGE majority of "indie" games are very creative and terribly boring. so nope sorry but that's not how things work. if they cannot make a game that can be better than a 30 year old one then they should stop wasting money and find another job.

@TurboPikachu aaah the never ending wii hate from N64Kids never cease to amaze me. It's annoyimg but here you are...

1. "0 from 2012". Drop the hyperbole. It's ridiculous. The wii has sold less than used to but still manages to sell around 2000 a week. That's hardly a zero.

2. why would people spend 200+ dls in a console to play a game they can pretty good play in their already owned one. Only geeks and otakus (a niche) only give a damn about mega hyper HD graphics. Must users are very content to play a very well made game in their old hardware.

3."It's the worst version" says who? you? the wii versions are actually very well made and has lots of content. The only thing that will be missing this time will be the streaming service but besides that it will have the same songs.

4."it lost mainstream support when the wii u was released"?! hahahahaha! only Nintendo fanboys got a Wii U. The wii u hasn't been accepted by the huge audience of the Wii. They still have it and enjoy it simply because it has a very large selection of very good games (yes it does, sorry if you don't want to accept it).

Man all these years and the same idiotic anti-wii comments. When you geeks will give it a rest? You are ridiculous.



minotaurgamer commented on Ryu, Roy, New Stages and More Now Available in...:

@Towelie Seeing how bad the wii u and a bit mediocre the 3DS is doing, making dlc and figurines is a easier way to stay afloat. If the Wii U had the same high sales as the Wii or even the half it, they wouldn't release incomplete games and dlc.

I bet they are not very happy about this but they dont have a better choice at the moment.



minotaurgamer commented on Gawk at the Dragon Quest VIII Promotional Post...:

@Geonjaha I would love to play these games but yeah I don't have any expectations whatsoever.

I don't think they are idiots. DQ is simply not very popular in the west enough to invest in translation and locallization specially with huge games like these.

I hope I am wrong though.



minotaurgamer commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

@Gaeus If "indies" or mega third parties cannot compete with 30+ year old games then i am sorry but they should find another job. It's pathetic.

Oh and Dan adelrman link has NOTHING to do with the idiotic analysis of quorthon. but hey keep enjoy your fantasy land, whatever.



minotaurgamer commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

Oh good ol' @Quorthon you just never rest do you? reading how you enjoy distorting truths and FACTS to fit your narrative that the Wii and DS were "flukes" it's....actually is funny.

I enjoy reading how you can come to conclusions twisting numbers and data and you even make a chart! :D that's awesome.

Too bad that the real world says otherwise. But hey! keep enjoy your fantasy world where 3d parties never do wrong, the Wii was a fad (LOL) and Nintendo will be a huge success if it goes 3d party just like sega and hudosn soft did.


Keep up the good work anyhoo.



minotaurgamer commented on Wii U Stretch Goal Seemingly Teased for Bloods...:

@CharlyDunst I find it cute that people still thinks that meanie Capcom stopped making Megaman because, just because.

MM stop selling. That's why they stopped making them. M#9 is just a game for niche audiences just like this one. No difference here. Niche games for niche audiences funding their own games because nobody will. The industry is a now an ugly, big, rotten monster that cannot make such kind of games without filling for bankrupcy. Modern gaming is BS.

And I really doubt they will reach the 3M mark.



minotaurgamer commented on Reaction: Nintendo Dropped the Ball, Not the M...:

did you guys really expected a huge national cross event? how so?

Nintendo, at this moment, is on "fan boy" mode which it means everything is to catter to Nintendo fanboys, hence the amiibos (collectable figurines), anime/manga games (fire emblem x shin megamwhatever and xenoblade), DLC instead of new content and the "resurrection" of an old name that is 25 years old.

And in case you didn't notice, Nintendo fanboys are a minority. Why spend millions of dollars in something that will only catter to a handful of gamers? is ridiculous.



minotaurgamer commented on UCraft is a Wii U Exclusive Once Again:

@bitleman There was also lack of interest from nintendo. When Tetris appeared, which was also a HUGE phenomenon, nintendo fighted fiercely to get the console rights. with this? they even didn't care and much of the blame comes from Miyamoto's last word in game projects. The guy doesn't like PC games only his own stuff and that makes them lose a huge oportunity like Minecraft.



minotaurgamer commented on Feature: What NEC And Hudson Did Next: The Dis...:

@Nintendian No. Nintendo backed up because Sony was asking full rights for the games published on CD's and break the confidentiality agreement.

I wish people stop treating this story as "Nintendo was so greedy that they made the PLAYSTATION" myth. But judging by your post, i guess that will never happen.
