Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Footage Surfaces of Cancelled Wii Star ...:

I'm not sure who is to blame but it seems like the worst cancellation of all time. I'm wondering if some NDAs expired for him to only talk about it now. Hopefully this is a 'come and save my game' plea...... Disney and Nintendo could make this happen....... It could save Wii U!

Okay that last bit was probably a step too far.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

@justastone Xenoblade was popular.

@Kogorn733 games like F-Zero, WaveRace, 1080 Snowboarding, Disaster Day of Crisis, Geist haven't had sequels because the last/only game in the series failed to sell as well as Nintendo hoped.

@WaLzgi if you're referring to the first game, that wasn't released this century. Obviously Nintendo's bar isn't set at 2 million copies but if a game sells poorly it more than likely gets buried.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

Fatal Frame will probably need a localisation just to break even at the moment! Fingers crossed. I wonder if Nintendo will promote Bayonetta over here like it's a key game of 2014 or whether they'll leave it to rot and just advertise Smash.....



Nintenjoe64 commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

What did people expect?
That the GC controller would work on all those games with two L buttons?

It would be very easy for them to update the firmware on the Wii channel to accept Gamecube controllers via USB but this announcement pretty much says they have no plans for that. We will probably see more HD remakes of GC games nobody asked for and neither of them will support this controller!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: GoldenEye 007:

Using the sniper rifle on the dam level is one of my favourite gaming memories. It seems ordinary to have a sniper rifle in a shooter but in 1997 it was the stuff of a madman's dreams. Nintendo should reunite the old Rare at whatever cost and rule the shooting world again.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Forsaken:

I'm glad this game was not forsaken.

I never fully got the hang of this game but the Ronnie Size tune was awesome for an N64 game!



Nintenjoe64 commented on Video: Aqua Moto Racing Utopia Footage Breaks ...:

This looks quite cool but I know as soon as I buy this game or FAST or a Snowboarding Racing game, Nintendo will announce WaveRace, F-Zero and 1080 reboots.

If Nintendo don't put balance board support in a 1080 game soon then Iwata should quit. It's just stupid to not have one.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Bayonetta on Wii U Bewitches as the Best Version:

I'm surprised they managed to improve the loading times from a 360 game. Nintendo should buy them for that reason alone. Even a couple of Nintendo's games have annoying loading times.

I'm now interested to see how Bayo 2 actually compares to Bayo 1 when looked at by me rather than by a computer.



Nintenjoe64 commented on Super Smash Bros. Continues Chart Domination i...:

Isn't 36,000 about 4x as high as W101 was in Japan? Not a win but at least sales are heading in the right direction.

and like @Pod says, Bayonetta 2 will probably sell for quite a long time after 2014. There's not exactly going to be much competition in January when people are looking to expand their libraries beyond their xmas presents of Smash and MK8



Nintenjoe64 commented on First Image Of Wii U Wipeout-Beater FAST Racin...:

@Kirk I'm with you on that one. I thought the game held up on its own (especially for a Wiiware) and the orbs made it into a cerebral puzzle as well as a racer.

Hopefully they've been using the last couple of years to make an F-Zero mode, Wipeout mode and they can keep the orb collecting as a separate mode. 3 Futuristic racing games in one!!!!
