minotaurgamer commented on NPD Results Bring Solid 3DS Numbers as Wii U S...:

@S-Miyahon I am really tired of hearing that idiotic argument but here we go.

Customers will buy a console that has games they like. They buy the wii because it has games they like to play. Yes, the Wi U can play wii games and so what? are people going to spend 300 dollars to play old games? that's ridiculous. People is not buying the wii u because there's no compelling software in it. Journalists can give all the 10s they want to Pikmin but nobody will spend 300 dollars on it. Wii has a huge selection of games starting with wii sports (which like it or not it was a phenomenon last generation), mario kart, 2D Mario and more with an accesible price. And yes I know those games are also on Wii U. But what are those games doing that the older ones didn't? They may be good but are not good enough to make people spend 300 dlls on it. Only nerds and fanboys do but mainstream audiences will buy what gives them a good value in return.

I am amazed how gamers really truly hate the Wii. They cannot stand the fact that a little console was so succesful because it wasn't aimed at them. Too bad for them though. Gaming is for the masses not for an elitist bunch



minotaurgamer commented on Yoshio Sakamoto Striving For "New Entertainmen...:

You can feel the contempt he has to the Metroid fans for (rightfully so) rejecting his maternal instincts vision. It's obvious whose "those fans" is he refering for calling BS on his absurd metroid version.

Well boo-freaking-hoo sakamoto. Videogames are ENTERTAINMENT not art. If you want to create emotions and maternal instincts foolery then be a mime.



minotaurgamer commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

Sometimes Nintendo shouldn't listen to their fans. I agree.

Case in point: the Wii and Wii U

Wii was a console that was giving nintendo a huge comeback to the lighspot but because Nintendo fanboys hated it they ditched their way and returned to the destructive Gamecube/N64 ways that fans love and adore. That's what made them create the atrocious Wii U. I hate when nintendo fanboys hate on the Wii U when the darn console WAS CREATED THANKS TO THEM

Most of times, fans are shortighted and selfish. Most of times, they don't care about no one but them. Mosy of times, is better ignore them for everybody's sake.



minotaurgamer commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

I understand blaming EA. But Nintendo? Is not their job to market all 3d party games they have. Not even MS or Sony do it. What do they want next? programm the games for them?

And yes I know that they do market some 3d games but why they would do with an old port of a game? Sorry but that's EA's job.



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

@SuperMarioBros3 I'm sorry what? everything you whine doesnt make sense.

Nintendo doesn't charges for this service. It's free. And right now their profits are slowing down so is normal for them to move their resources to the ones that need more attention at the moment and have future. I am sad for this but it is normal. Wii sales are in their final fase and they need to pick up pace with their newer ones. These are not Sony or MS that can burn money when they want or charge for their services to the blind and dumb fanbase that pay for everything they tells them to do. Nintendo is smaller than them and need to be cautious.

This is normal and happens with free services that require maintenance and are being paid but the software sale. This is not drama, IS THE REAL WORLD.



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Direct: Trailers Round-Up:

Lots of sequels and games nobody asked for (inazuma eleven? steel diver?! that dumb baseball game with the dog?!) and X's gameplay seems as boring as Xenoblade. Pass.
Little mac in SSB was a cool news.
The best part was the GBA games announcement and of course MARIO KART 8!!!!



minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

@gatorboi352 Not really. You can see those gamers are just the same old gamers from the past generations. They are a shrinking audience. Everybody is praising the PS4 sales but they are pretty much the same as the pS3 when it was released. There are no new gamers just the same ones.

And when a console like the wii that attracted new gamers appeared they hated it and call it "a lighnting in the bottle"




minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

@gatorboi352 "a lighting in the bottle"?! seriously?!
That "lighting in the bottle" outsold the dumbed down PCs for 5 years! how on earth is that a lightning in the bottle?! wii sports, mario kart, NMSBW all those game outosold other famous franchises in their lifetime,

That's what pisses me of videogamers nowadyas. They follow the game industry's lies and propaganda without seeing real life. You people are pathetic.



minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

@gatorboi352 with the way they treat nintendo users as 3d class gamers, why they should care? i'll understand if those games were as good as the other versions byt they aren't. They are diluted and made with mediocre effort. Why I should by X or Y third party if it's a mediocre effort? just to "support" them? they are in the business, not charity. if they want me to pay them attention then make good quality projects, not uninspired ones and then blame for not supporting them.

And let's face it, 3d parties would have never ever supported the wii successot no matter what. I dont know what is going on with gamers that like to pretend that the wii was a failure. Are you really that delusional to believe that the other consoles were much better? Xbox only sells in america and UK, PS3 took like 6 years to get better sales.

Please stop pretending the wii was a failure. it wasn't.just because some 3d party (mediocre) games weren't released on it doesn't make it a failure.



minotaurgamer commented on Feature: Breaking Down What Nintendo's QOL Pla...:

Interesting points but to be honest, the way they give it was very ambiguous and could be interpreted in many ways.

Still, you can see how nerds, geeks, otakus, "hardcore" bros and journalits are pissed off with this.

And that's a good thing.

Gaming should be for the masses. Not for some few with previligies. That's what was wonderful about the Wii. It has games that made people play with others (wii sports, mario kart, NSMBW), make them stay healthy (Wii Fit) and made them fit in their lives instead of taking them away from their lives. It was the blue ocean concept that put them right on track. They started to go downhill when they ditched it and returned to their Gamecube vices.

I feel very optimistic so far. Of cpurse we wont know anything about this QOL platform until next year. But is good to see Nintendo returning to their old self again.



minotaurgamer commented on Review: Mario Bros. (3DS eShop / NES):

To each it own, ok. But that's why I dont trust reviews. They are too biased about what should be and not what it is. It's dated why? It's not that different from other games of the era. You are just attacking it because it's not Super mario or a Mega man game or another overrated "gem" like a dumn RPG game.

That's just show how spoiled and childish Nintendo gamers are. they cannot appreciate a good game because "it's dated".



minotaurgamer commented on Satoru Iwata Announces a "Quality of Life" Pla...:


That's very ambiguous to be honest. I won't lie, it keeps me intrigued and could be a "3d pilar" for the company.

Gaming should be for the masses and if this is a way to expand audiences then so be it. Anything that breaks the niche mentality console gaming is becoming to will be welcomed.



minotaurgamer commented on Review: Mario Bros. (3DS eShop / NES):

Just because it's old and simply doesn't make it bad. This game is still solid and addictive and does its job of entertaining and having a good time. Not all games have to be artsy-movie-like HD graphics or creative garbage to be "good".



minotaurgamer commented on Preview: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze:

@WaveBoy "Retro should of went with an odd ball prerendered trippier look like what they did with the SNES games. It made the Country series stand out, but they've resorted to a genric 3D look just for the sake of mass appeal. Soccer moms won't stand for no weirdness, then again...Soccer moms have moved onto I-Phones. "

Ok, that's the most stupid thing i have read in this page.



minotaurgamer commented on Preview: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze:

@K-Gamer 3D platformers are a failure. Seriously, all platformers that have turn to 3D had bad reception and mediocre sales, not counting that thet destroy the mechanics and resort to puzzle-solving tediousness and collectathons. Not all genres fit on 3D. Platformers and fighters work much better and are better accepted than 3D ones.



minotaurgamer commented on Preview: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze:

Take note ubisoft: THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE A FUN PLATFORMER. No artsy-fartst stuff, nor whimsycal humor. Just well-polishen arcade gameplay with lots of content and real challenge. That's why your Rayman sleeping pills fail to sell. Content and gameplay will always yrump over "creativity" and "art".



minotaurgamer commented on Review: Chibi-Robo! Photo Finder (3DS eShop):

@SecondServing Chibi-robo, just like Pikmin, has ZERO reason to exist or even be made. It's a game nobody bought and nobody cares except the extremely small nintendo-hardcore-fanboy base. In fact, it was actually a good idea to make this game a small, e-shop game. It's so damn boring, uninteresting, filled with chores (like aounuma's puzzeldas) that has no life in the real-world. A small mediocre game for a small mediocre user base.



minotaurgamer commented on Mario And Zelda On Mobile Could Bring New Play...:

Anyone that actually agrees with this is someone with whom I disagree.
Nintendo going third party will be its end, not a solution. There's no huge and healthy market in neither the smartphones or the other consoles. That's delusional.
Sometimes I wonder why people keep listeining to the them



minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

casual gamers, tablets, releasing mario galaxy in HD, wii mini was a bad decision...

Wii mini was a good decision because THAT'S WHAT PEOPLE WANTS TO BUY. Nobody is going to buy a expensive console to buy old games.

Mario galaxy has never been ver succesful. SMG1 sold thanks to the huge momentum the wii had. Or you forgot about the mediocre sales of SMG2? what on earth makes you think that a HD version of those games will sell consoles? seriously?

Nobody buys tablets or phones for gaming. That's a myth. Tablets and smartphones are disrupting personal computers and that's why people prefer to spend their money in an all-purpose machine than a dedicated console specially if any of the current consoles have games (GAMES GAMES GAMES!) that made them want to spend money on them like wii sports and 2d mario (even as bad as it is, NMSBU is the only incentive people have to buy a wii u. the fact that it is not enough just shows how nintendo treat their most valued franchise).

and seriously, SERIOUSLY?! "Casual gaming" ?!?! Taht's nothing but a BS word created by the industry. Wii didn't succeeded because of "casual gamers".

You don't need insults to get your point across -Lz



minotaurgamer commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

Very noble from him,but he is not the whole problem. There are others in there that have much if not more blame to have. like Miyamoto

3D on the 3DS? Miyamoto's idea
Put someone that doesn't like zelda in charge of zelda? miyamoto's idea
Conectivity over internet? miyamoto's fault
No 2D Mario for almost 20 years because he just didnt want to do it even if it was demand for? yup, miyamoto
Waste money and time making pikmin 3, A GAME NOBODY BUYS AND GIVES A DAMN FOR, over other more important games? miyamoto-san of course.
the awful, awful N64, Gamecube and wii u controler design? miyamoto's
Give preference to 3D Mario over 2D Mario, making the former better even though it sell less and makin the former mediocrely even though is the one with highest demand for? Miyamoto.
Making games drag in development because the guy doesnt want to give control to other people? yup he is the one to blame.

He has been only making bad decisions for the last 15 years and they keep rewarding him. it's ridiculous. He has more blame to have than iwata. They were going to retire him. why they didn't?! This guy cannot continue this generation and beyond. yes he had good ideas and made great games BEFORE but now he is a huge boulder in the road.



minotaurgamer commented on A Link Between Worlds Early Japanese Sales Sur...:

Zelda has never being that big in japan for starters. Zelda has always been more popular in the west. That's why Twilight Princess was made with the western gamers in mind (and sold very good) unlike Skyward sword which was more anime-ish for the japanese audience and had awful mediocre sales.

Also, Phantom hourglass is 6 years old and ALBTW is not even a month in stores over there. That comparison would make more sense after a month or maybe two.



minotaurgamer commented on Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014:

Any Metroid without Sakamoto's "maternal instinct" stuff will be welcomed. Keep that creep out of it.
I doubt Animal crossing will go to consoles. It has proven that it works better on portables, just like pokemon.
A Paint Mario U sounds useselss with the art academy app in there.
I have yet to understand the fascination fanboys have with Majora's mask. It's pretty much the black sheep of the zelda games. Not, Zelda 2 it isn't. People actuyally cared about that game but nobody did with MM. It's completly anti-zelda and has an annoying time-based gameplay that hindered what made zelda great.
Most of the games you mention, I know they are made up but, seriouslu, they sound way to dumb to even consider them (Paper mario origami? wth?).



minotaurgamer commented on Feature: Looking Back at Nintendo in 2013 - Pa...:

I liked it. i just hope 2014 is better. I doubt this generation will be as interesting as the last one (no wii-like phenomenon) or as healthy as before (sales are shrinking each year which is worrysome) but maybe this year they will be a beacon of hope specially for wii u...



minotaurgamer commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

@YChung And that's why they are not a priority. hardcore games means niche sales. There's a reason why Nintendo stopped making Fzero and Star fox. Nobody buy those games anymore. Sad but true.

Metroid has always been a niche series with healthy sales and aceptation but after Sakamotos' disastrous offering, i doubt we'll see a metroid game in a long time.

Hardcore gamers are blind, selfish and destructive. If it's an audience nintendo should stop listening are the hardcore and their "casual" fallacies. They have to make games that expand gaming and teh audience...something neither Bayonetta, Fire emblem, shin megami tensei, star fox and f zero wont ever do.



minotaurgamer commented on Pokémon Bank Withdrawn From 3DS eShop in Japa...:

You kids act like they did this intentionally or if like they are the only company that have these kind of issues. Steam and even PSN have way more of this stuff oftenly and lasts more. When was the last time this happened with Nintendo?

Fanboys are really annoying,
