paniccoffee commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Satoru Iwata's Nintendo...:

Instead of trying to do everything, Nintendo should definitely focus on games ---- Quality games. Maybe having good relations/partnerships with developers, after all, they are their bread and butter. Abandon region lock and culture typecasting.

They keep on complaining about needing more profit and yet they never listen to the fan base.



paniccoffee commented on Satoru Iwata States That Nintendo Should "Aban...:

Abandoning old assumptions with regards to piracy such as region locking would probably help, as well as easily re-downloading all purchases from an account. I certainly hope the quality of games doesn't go down with this new direction that seem to be wanting to do everything and be everywhere.

Also abandoning the culture typecasting that certain games are only for Japan and alienating the rest of the world that are willing to pay for those games would probably increase profits. You never listen to your fan base, that's an attitude you or your shareholders should abandon as well.



paniccoffee commented on Satoru Iwata Refutes Claim That Nintendo Is "S...:

I think there's still potential for the WiiU. When the 3DS was first released, it was expensive and had a very small game library. I almost gave up on it, thinking it was a failure. Then came the slew of exceptional games that totally changed its fortune. With Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Fire Emblem boosting sales even more, after more than a year after its release. It could happen for the WiiU too.

The great games are the key and also fixing that game redownload policy. If they finally allowed download and redownload of previously purchased games TIED TO AN ACCOUNT.... that would probably even boost digital sales that they constantly strive to push right now, as well as convincing people to buy your system.



paniccoffee commented on Ghostlight Will Open Pre-Orders For Devil Surv...:

There's a remake in the making, I prefer to buy that --- if it ever arrives. I must admit I am a bit worried of bugs creeping in like that of Overclocked.

I prefer if all Atlus' releases come to EU rather than back specials like this... we're still waiting on a forever TBA SMTIV.



paniccoffee commented on One Piece: Romance Dawn Won't Be Sailing To No...:

@mandrew257 Those releases are very weird because for a very long time, EU always had a snail mail release for games and even today with some games such as Soul hackers is due on Sept. SMTIV is still TBA, not getting Rune Factory 4. Inazuma Eleven is here is because they consider soccer the national sport here, so they hope to make a cash cow out of it.

Honestly, I don't mind if the release is just like a few weeks or a month or two... but longer is a bit excruciating. Certainly, the releases from NA and EU is closer than ever, so maybe it's getting better now. Maybe. They should just release the damn thing on all regions. Pokémon can do it. Project X Zone and Animal Crossing could as well (almost, with a few days delay). One Piece is a well-known franchise that probably have deep pockets to support development and marketing so it doesn't make sense not releasing it.



paniccoffee commented on Project X Zone Battles Into UK Top 20 in Debut...:

It's just too bad they could not market it earlier, it was a like a surprise release. There's no doubt it's for a niche audience and the story won't be as good as say, Fire Emblem, but it's obvious that a lot of effort was put into gameplay. For that, I wish it success and also it could support the push for more Japanese games to be localized.



paniccoffee commented on Satoru Iwata - "There Are Some Reasons Behind"...:

Excuses yet again. Actually, people probably won't mind if Nintendo actually releases all games in all regions at the same moment. Since that's not the case, drop the region lock. Other systems could do it, surely Nintendo can.



paniccoffee commented on Global Link For Pokémon Black And White Title...:

Not so sorry to see it go. If it weren't for pokémon with abilities only available to the dream world, I would not endure such horrible flash games. They could have just put the mini games in the cartridge itself so we didn't have to switch from computer to console and back again. So annoying.



paniccoffee commented on Talking Point: It's Time for Nintendo to Drop ...:

I don't mind the region lock if they do a worldwide release such as that for Pokémon for all regions. However, when a game takes a very long time to arrive here in Europe, that's when we wish they'd drop the region lock so we can at least import the games, English or even Japanese if there are no localization plans instead of waiting months --- even years while everybody else has it already.



paniccoffee commented on Nintendo "Would Consider" Making Free-To-Play ...:

DLCs are fine, but making it totally freemium? No thanks. I don't want this franchise to be a game that nudges you for real money for an item every week.or so, such as "games" like We Rule or The Smurfs. Don't dilute this franchise by doing that, it would certainly kill it.



paniccoffee commented on New 3DS Firmware Update 6.0.0-11U Now Live:

Backup capability sounds good . EU getting the update first? Weird. Now, if games actually arrive to the EU at this rate or at least a few weeks as other regions, it would certainly better! (Shin Megami Tensei IV, Soul Hackers, etc.)



paniccoffee commented on Nintendo Setting Up Thousands Of StreetPass Re...:

I think this is great. Portable gaming here in EU isn't as widespread as in the US or JP, I think this would help people in smaller cities to at least have some streetpass functionality if they don't know/meet anybody else with a 3DS. If I go to the bigger cities, I just get a max of 5, not very much.



paniccoffee commented on Reggie: Publishers Should Create Great Games T...:

He has a point in the sense that great games are seldom for resale because people will most likely want to keep them in their collection for their replayability. There are a lot of mediocre to really bad games (usually movie tie-ins and other spin-offs) nowadays that reselling has just become a convenient back up plan in case people didn't like the game or got tired of it after a few hours.



paniccoffee commented on Thinking Of Buying Animal Crossing: New Leaf? ...:

While I agree that it is convenient for a digital copy, I still will go for the physical copy until Nintendo changes their policy regarding re-download of purchased digital games I already bought through my account instead of it being tied to my console.

I don't mind the digital price being the same as the retail copy if that's what they really need to make profit enough for the game to be published, but I also fear the day something happens to my 3DS. At least with the retail copy, I could still buy a new 3DS and play the games there. I really hope Nintendo reconsiders their policy.



paniccoffee commented on Shin Megami Tensei IV Will Have Some DLC Avail...:

I'd be glad to pick up a copy (like other SMT titles) when it's realeased in Europe (hopefully). I hope SMTIV comes out in Q3 2013 as well.

As for the free DLC, I'm glad games still offer some free extras like this. I can understand the need for more exclusive stuff, but unless I really like the DLC, I'm not buying.
