raghouse commented on Nintendo and Philips Sign Global Patent Licens...:

This time it includes the rights for Phillips to make 3 Metroid video games and a Zelda animated series. The spokesperson for Phillips indicated that "We wish to take Samus in the direction of a live action soap opera raising a baby metroid. The trilogy would focus on the daily challenges an intergalactic bodyguard single mom would face in caring for her child while trying to find time to incinerate space pirates and brain sucking space creatures. We feel that we will be able to take Samus's character in directions that she had nev...uh...been only once before."

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

@rjejr Bingo. Obviously this makes no business sense. This sounds like a way to try to make people freak out that their favorite series is going to be cancelled and buy 2-3 copies of games than any real business strategy. Most Capcom PR statements have backfired on them recently anyway. They seriously need new management.

The Wind Waker HD remake has sold roughly only 2 million copies when you included both physical and downloadable versions. Capcom expecting a repackage of two Darkstalkers games to sell this much via download only is just plain delusional.
Moving the Resident Evil Revelations series away from the DS will probably be a mistake too.
The videogame industry is an extremely difficult industry to be successful in right now. You really have to be on your game with business decisions to make it anymore. I just don't see Capcom having the leadership to make it much longer. They will be sold off to someone else before too long. Lets just hope the new owner will be able to restore some of the former magic the company had.

raghouse commented on Devil's Third:

I hate to say it. But this will probably be the next Madworld. A game that is unique and fun but underloved. I love Nintendo for it's family friendly games when the kids are up but I'm glad that a game like this is coming out. A more 'mature' game to call our own.

raghouse commented on Official Nintendo Magazine Announces Closure i...:

I''m from the USA and I've been a subscriber for the last two years. They were very good and had comprehensive reviews on every single game released on Nintendo platforms including the classic game eshop releases. Definitely a better magazine than Nintendo Power was at the time of its demise. I think it is the last of the Nintendo magazines in English. I was hoping they could make it to 2015 because that looks to become the Wii U's golden year.

raghouse commented on Capcom Is Suing Koei Tecmo For Patent Infringe...:

So Capcom waits 12 years and claims 50 games infringe on their patent. Even if there is patent infringement Capcom should only get money for 1 game. All of the games after that they should only get anything if they notified Tecmo-Koei of the patent infringement and Tecmo-Koei didn't take steps to correct the problem. This is like a woman that waits until a child is 18 then wants back child support for 18 years.

raghouse commented on Review: 3D Altered Beast (3DS eShop):

I loved this at the arcade when I was a kid. I also had the pack-in when I bought the Sega Genesis on launch day (the only system I ever got on launch). I think I'll have to get this as well.

@Gnoll
The arcade games within are new games that resemble old arcade games. There is a Defender type game, a Scramble like game, Tanks in a maze game, and one where you fly through a tubular environment dodging cars and shooting ghosts. The last one is probably the most fun as it has the greatest challenge.

Playing the game now. Very solid platforming with decent variety. My only real complaint is that textures are reused a little too often giving a bit of a budget feel. The Aztec themed levels are downright great. I just wish the fire, ice, and city levels were as inspired.

raghouse commented on Review: Bike Rider DX (3DS eShop):

This reminds me of an updated version of the best and most underappreciated Atari 2600 game of all time, the BMX bike event from California Games. In fact, the Atari version was more fun than any of the other more powerful systems. I'll have to pick this one up for nostalgia.

raghouse commented on Iwata Says He Didn't Commit to Stepping Down O...:

Nintendo had been profitable for a very long time in an extremely competitive market. A couple down years is going to happen sooner or later.

The original Xbox had an overall operating loss. The Playstation 3 was a money loser for quite a while.

When the next set of consoles are released, Nintendo may actually benefit, as the lower development costs and a (expected) growing install base of the Wii U will be attractive for 3rd parties with good ideas but without the resources to make a competitive game on the PS4 or Xbox One.

raghouse commented on Sniper Elite V2 on Wii U Lacks Online Co-Op an...:

@thebigN Online Co-op missing would have been just fine if Rebellion had local co-op without split screen. Everyone of these late ports should offer co-op with one player using a wii-mote or pro controller and the other using the WiiU controller. Why would anyone pay a premium for the WiiU version when there is no good reason to play it over other versions.
