Stages of Nintendo Grief


-Iwata ignores the intense Internet backlash to Wii U’s premier at E3 2011 saying ‘They weren’t here to play it. Why should we care what they say?’

-Iwata ignores the bad launch and says, ‘Sales are steady.’

-Miyamoto says the correct software needs to made to ‘show off how cool the Gamepad is’. [This is where Nintendo is at now.]


-Anger will erupt at Wii consumers who didn’t buy the Wii U. Remember Reggie’s 3DS “What’s wrong with you?” Anger will flow out at third parties who aren’t making games for the Nintendo system. Anger will come at the press coverage in some fashion.


-Cool bundles. Price cuts. Other neat promos. [Nintendo is nowhere near here yet for the Wii U.] Depression

Remember when Miyamoto revealed that he was ‘very, very sad’ about the Gamecube’s sales? It will be something like that. We won’t see the depression publicly.


-Nintendo will acknowledge the flaws publicly. With the Gamecube, this came with Nintendo saying, “Yes, the Gamecube looking like a toy did not help us. We should design it so it fits with the rest of the home theater equipment.”

Right now Miyamoto is in the Stage of Anger. and how!



minotaurgamer commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

And you all celebrating this? seriously?

Focusing on "the core" a.k.a fans is why the Nintendo 64, the gamecube failed and why the Wii U is failing. The Wii U is nothing but the gamecube philosophy passing as a mainstream one. It has nothing but "hardcore" games and "gamecube" games.

This only proves that Miyamoto is nothing but an old arrogant man with a huge ego that cannot let him accept to be wrong and only finds people to blame. The simple use of the world "casuals" which is a bullpoopoodoodoocacapoopledoople word created by the industry and propagated BY YOU "the fans" just shows at how lengths this man goes to justify his actions.

I used to admire Miyamoto but since some years ago I have been wary about his actions. And this just proves it. What a dissapointment. This isn't the Nintendo that grabs new audiences. This is Miyamoto's playground doing what he wants, never having blame to get and having you cheer him.

He says that "casuals" are pathetic? No Mr. miyamoto, you Sir is nothing an old man that has become toxic for the company, is out of control and needs to get retired for the sake of Nintendo.

What a disappointment gaming has become, both the developers and the audiences.

minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

I have a wii and never had the urgency of having another one. I know gamers are about having ALL the games but that's ridicule. I dont see MS and Sony fans buying a Nintendo console except to make fun of it.

Nintendo gamers have no dignity. If the industry and the third parties treats you like 2d rate customers you just shrug and do what they tell them. You are pathetic.

I am more than happy for my wii u and I see no reason to buy an Industry console. And no PC either. Those are for work, not gaming.



minotaurgamer commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

It's true that normally Nintendo users have different expectations when it come to games but also that normally we have a higher quality bar than the others. Even the most mediocre games from Nintendo are well crafted and we know that we'll have a good game while 3d party games tend to be slopy, gimped and incomplete on nintendo users. The assasin's creed games are good on the wii u but sincerely, if you have a wii u and a twin HD console (PS/XB) you will end up buying in the latter because it has more content and has less tech issues. Nintendo users have less tolarence to that.

Third parties are not like they use to be. They know that in order to grab a huge segment of Nintendo users they have to work harder and not make half-donkeyed products, something they can get away with the others. They will find an excuse to not make games for us because we are not important to them.

The only solution for them is to us stop playing first party games and only buy theirs and that's absurd. That's why they propagate rumors and viral gossips about Nintendo making smartphone games and the exaggerated low sales so Nintendo stops making hardware, became a third party and slowly fade out like it happened to Hudson soft and will eventually to sega.

So you can go and F yourself Ubisoft. Yes we are much harder to please but if you are so coward to take the risk and challenge yourself, then I don't want your sloppy seconds stuff in my consoles. Go and give that to the XB and PS users that jump at everything that has boobs, blood, hollywood scripts, beige graphics and so on even if the product is shallow and mediocre.

We Nintendo users deserve much better.



minotaurgamer commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

Screw you guys, I want another Donkey kong Country game from them. They really know how to do them properly and seeing how 2D Mario is treated like a leper and indie games just don't get it, they are the only ones that can give me my 2D platform fix the way it should be.



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

Typical "gamer" behaviour: something is announced for mass market related to videogaming and they act hostile and elitist.

News flash children: gaming has always been "casual" and "mainstream" way before the industry started to wash your brains with dumb labels like "hardcore" "gamer console" "casual gaming" and other fallacies.

If any, "hardcore" gamers should be ignored. They are poisonus, selfish and only destroy what they touch. If that QOL platform, whatever it is, can do that, then bring it on!



minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

Make restrictions to avoid garbage: everybody cries and whines and treat MS/Sony like heroes (Seriously?!)

Lose restrictions to "indie" developers : everybody cries and whines and treat MS/Sony like heroes (seriously?!)

Nintendo: bad if you do and bad if you don't.



minotaurgamer commented on Timespinner Looks Like an Awesome Pixel-Based ...:

ANOTHER Pixelated "metroidvania" game?! seriously?!

What the hell is wrong with this "indie" developers? they fall in the same boring, repetitive, annoying cliches over and over again. PIXEL ART! OBNOXIOUS DIFFICULTY! CREATIVITY! METROIDVANIA! Geez! knock it off already!

No wonder they are "indie" making the same niche stuff for a mere cents.



minotaurgamer commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:


This guy lives in Hardcoreland where "wii gamers" are stupid savages that have to be reducated by geeks and otakus.

If "wii gamers" wanted to play PS3 games, they would have bought a PS3. They didn't for a reason which they seem to ignore or pretend it doesn't exist.



minotaurgamer commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

woah woah woah woah....what the hell is wrong with you guys?! why are you so happy and cheerful that a GAME WEBISTE gives a thumbs up to a game system after years of ignoring it based on industry bullpoopsiedoodoocacapoopledoopledoggiedoops?

why are you giving so much importance to this? who the hell are they whose opinions are SO GODLY important?

They are nothing but a bunch of nerds get paid to talk about videogames and prostitute themselves to the industry. They are nobody authority only for the niche geeks and otakus. The rest of the world doesn't give a damn what a game website says about X o Y console.

You guys are really pathetic you know that? You have ZERO dignity if you feel BLESSED because an idiotic, useless, fanboyish webiste says yes to a game console. And also delusional.

No wonder why nobody takes gamers seriously. You are ridiculous.

minotaurgamer commented on The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan:

almost 20 years and people still believes that Nintendo chose cartridge because of "stuborness" and "conservativenes". It was more complex than that.

They chose cartridges because the RAM was very small for all the information it managed. It wasn't even Nintendo's idea, it was SGI's. The pitch for the technology was a very powerful and inexpensive console and small RAM was the solution. They agreed because of their bad experience with their snes cds projects, their quality control and what they saw a slow medium. why do you think they were making the 64DD.

It wasn't stuborness but naivity. It was a logical yet misguided decision. Besides, even if it had CD's the N64 had other issues like complex tools and hardware shortcomings as well as high costs. Just look at the sega saturn it used CDs. was succesful? of course not.

It's time to stop parroting industry's myths, grow up and stop revisiting history. It's ridiculous.



minotaurgamer commented on Eiji Aonuma Plans To Shake Up the Puzzle Formu...:

@MAB LOZ1, LOZ2 and heck even LOZ3 didn't have puzzles. Puzzles started to go nuts when aounuma jumped in and with it the series decline. He always talk about zelda's roots but how he can talk about them if he HATES the classic zeldas?! The only thing he knows to do are anime NPCs and puzzles. If this game really was acout returning to the roots' series then it wouldn't have any puzzles.

and no, moving a block to open a door is not a puzzle. Burning a tree to open a passage is not a puzzle. lighting a candle is not a puzzle.



minotaurgamer commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

Does nobody notice the awful truth beneath? is the same kind of gamers just moving around the same machines. the 3 machines have the same philosophy and aim at the same kind of gamers. There are no new gamers. No "expanded audience". No new blood. Just the same niche audiences around.



minotaurgamer commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

This was a very boring E3. Just confirmed why I dont care about the industry. I think I'll do fine with my wii u and 3ds for this gen. Not because they are the best but at least they are better than the overblown PCs that MS and sony have.

The only game from the whole E3 that caught my attention was star fox U.... and they didn't have anything substancial to show. just tech demos. sighs The new upcoming zelda looks beautiful. But I'm tired beautiful and quirky bishonen-anime-like zelda. I dont want another skyward sword animesque puzzle-fest. I miss cool zelda like zelda 2, ocarina and twilight princess. Heck even the warriors one looks more baddonkey and less girly.About Hyrule warriors, Looks fun but never played a "warriors" game. I don't know what to think about it.

I thought that xenoblade was dull and boring. only geeks and otakus like that stuff. This new one doesn't look different. I pass. Same with Bayonetta. We all know that game will bomb just like in the more "hardkurr" consoles, so who cares? captain toad, mario maker, the pain gun game and the figurines, steampunk gears of wars, itagaki's perv game...I don't care.

The pac-man in SSB announcement was actually unexpected and I liked but man, so many kids angry because pac-man is in SSB. They are upset because (insert niche otaku game character) is not there! It seems that is OK for Megaman and sonic to be in there but not Pacman. How old are these gamers? 10? some even wanted Goku?! RUFK?!No offense but Pacman is way more relevant and important for gaming than Megaman and sonic and SPECIALLY Solid Snake. Not to mention goku!

And whatever I'll say it: this way people refers to reggie fils-aime like some sort of baddonkey is stupid. Never saw what's so funny about it. In fact, when he talks he looks very meh and nothing outstanding. Oh and that skit at the beginning of the NDevent? that's dumb as hell. Not even Steve Jobs had such a huge ego. Seeing 2 important executives acting like teenagers is atrocious. Leave that to actors not them. I expect more class from big companies not YT teenage skits. Grow up.
