@arnoldlayne83 #239, yup I like game theory, that was a good episode a few months back and I'm fully aware of sales etc. Just my opinion.

@Samuel-Flutter 'Is it bad that I really want an XBone for the Rare Collection? But I can't justify buying a console for one game. Perhaps later when the price goes down I'll pick one up.'

Don't do it! Xbone is a waste, to me anyway. I only got it cause I had a bit of a windfall a few months back with Halo collection and sunset overdrive, haven't turned it on since. I'm only getting the Rare collection so I can maybe turn the system on, and because it's under €20. Total regret buy tbh. I tried to sell it but most I got offered was €200 so I'll hold onto it. Go for a ps4, lots of games for that and it's a game system like WiiU.

@HollywoodHogan you're not getting me, I'm talking about in 2012 and 2013 when the WiiU was new, when the ps3 and x360 were getting NEW games still, they could have ported the new x360 games to the WiiU at little cost as the WiiU is most like the 360 at the time. Not ports of older games, the new ones coming in those years. And the WiiU would have been a new system so not a massive user base but if there was 3rd party 'ports' of NEW games coming to the WiiU at the same time as the ps360 in the first year I think the WiiU would have gained a bigger audience. But 3rd party devs dropped support like a hot snot literally in the first 6 months because their 2 or 3 years old ported games didn't sell. Stupid logic in my eyes and very lazy in their part.

I still love my WiiU but it's dead, basically on arrival, nothing can be done about that.



readyletsgo commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

@Peach64 true, but people are talking about ports of games that had been out for a year or two already on older systems so of course most people who wanted to play a particular game have it already on ps3 or x360 which those systems are dirt cheap in 2012/13 second hand so why would you pay €60 for a port of an old game with less content or no DLC support when you could by that game second hand for a €5 also?

We WiiU owners wanted the NEW games that were coming to the ps360 in 2012/13 not ports of old games with less content.



readyletsgo commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

I know the WiiU is failing hard but I have so many games for it it's ridicules! And! I just bought 7 new games today for it, all 3rd party. Sure they are not full retail price but they are gems I've seem people mention on here today.

Watch dogs
Batman Arkham City
Batman Arkham Origins
Ninja Gaiden 3
Need for Speed Most Wanted
Darksiders 2 (sold my last copy a year ago)

Biggest regret of this gen for me is buying an xbone, I'm only holding onto it to play Rare Collection next month. I just don't like the system at all this gen. But it's such a shame the WiiU doesn't get 3rd party games. I'd buy them, as proven above, albeit, a year or two later so I guess that doesn't count. But still! :)



readyletsgo commented on Nintendo Quality Of Life Patent Applications A...:

Wow! Lol, there is a lot of paranoia on here! Cameras everywhere OMG! So what? Ya doing something illegal?

Anyway, QoL thing here, clearly gamers are not the target audience for this, but I'm interested to see where it goes and what other things it might do besides monitor sleep patterns.

And yeah, NX? Nothing to do with it at all, maybe that projector or something? But that's it. This article is TOTAL click bait, and I fell for it too, no shame in that :)



readyletsgo commented on Talking Point: Assessing the Odds of Super Mar...:

@Wii-1 yeah thats what I see,
Mega fans will buy the system as collectors items. I know if I had the cash I'd have this and the WW bundle too, all sealed in my games room on display, but I just can't afford that. So the special edition on the game and the blue pixel Mario will do me, and they will be opened and used.

It is a little said when you think that the WiiU has maybe 1.5 to 2 years left before the NX comes along, so the game will be forgotten about in a years time and Ninty will eventually shut down the servers for these games too. It makes me wonder if all the levels that you download stay on your system forever or if you have a time limit on each level to play it, which would suck. If you can keep the level I would think we won't see a new 2d Mario for a long time and they will focus on 3d Mario games from here on out, which I'm cool with.

Overall though, the WiiU is getting a lot of games over the next few months,

Star Fox
YWW(in the states)
Might no.9
Devils Third(which after watching some gameplay I think I might pick up)
Mario Tennis
Legend of Kay Anniversary

10 (off the top of my head) games between now and Christmas, from 1st and 3rd parties, that's pretty impressive, for a system that has feck all support and I think I'll be picking most of them up tbh.



readyletsgo commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Has Limited Impact in Jap...:

@MightyKrypto well, the thing is, MS are trying, at launch of 360 they did hire Japanese devs to make Japanese games, but didn't have any ready at launch. They just had shooters and the like that sell well in the west but not in Japan. So by the time these Japanese devs had their games ready it was too little too late. The Japanese market said nope, and stuck with Sony and Ninty.

The thing is, if they pulled out now, after launching the xbone there, they would lose customer support in the future with the Microsoft name overall, so everything Windows would sell less I guess. It's such a tiny market for MS but just like Nintendo with the WiiU selling not so great it's best to just ride these situations out for 4 or 5 years.

I would think MS will not launch the XBOX Two or whatever it will be called in Japan in the future if they are wise. It's a terrible market for them.

I wonder how it's selling in China so far, didn't it launch there a few months back? Didn't Sony decide not to launch the ps4 in China? And didn't Nintendo say they are working on an individual Nintendo system to launch in China a while back too? But nothing since. So 'technically' Microsoft could make a killing in China right now? IDK but it's all insanely interesting to me to see how all 3 consoles have their own terrible sales story's for each gen.



readyletsgo commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Has Limited Impact in Jap...:

@MightyKrypto yup, it's because Microsoft are American and don't actually listen. On the launch of the original Xbox way back when, in Japan, MS messed up with a terrible launch with no Japanese games at all. Same happened with the 360 launch, lots of western games. And it's the same with the One, Japanese market know to go to Sony or Nintendo for the games they want, and big American company Microsoft don't listen to their Japanese customers at all, ever. They should have dropped out of the Japanese market just before launching the One cause they can't leave now, with the small user base that is there. But I would think the people who have an xbone also have a ps4 and a WiiU, so the xbone games just don't sell there.

Sorry for the wall of text but hope that helps.



readyletsgo commented on Nintendo Announces Super Mario Maker Wii U Har...:

@benptooey did you preorder online somewhere? I preordered with shopto, £47 and whatever delivery is too for the Amiibo bundle. Sadly it works out a lot in Euro so I haven't paid for it just yet in case I find a cheaper price closer to launch.

I love the WiiU system box art! Very eye catching, I would think that will sell only ok but will be very much wanted in a few years for mega bucks! Pity I already have my WiiU for nearly 3 years now cause I'd snap it up if I didn't.

I'm not too hyped about Super Mario Maker though. I have watched a couple vids on YouTube last night, looks good, but I think I'll be more about playing people's levels instead of making some, but there are some very creative people out there that will make great worlds I'm sure.

So I guess we won't be getting another 2d Mario for a few years, which, in my eyes, is a good thing. Kinda overkill at the moment with 2d Mario, and this will keep 2d Mario fans busy for a good while I hope.

Also, that blue and red pixel Mario, ugh, do I need it if I'm getting the other boxed version with book and all? I'll try and skip it.

Anyway, I hope it sells well for Nintendo!



readyletsgo commented on Nintendo Teams Up With DigiPen to Support and ...:

@IronMan28 yup. I feel the 'NX' will mainly be digital. They are setting up lots of small studio devs in the background to make sure they have at least loads of digital games ready at launch, along with their own 1st party games. I like it, they are planning ahead for, hopefully, a solid launch of the 'NX', when ever that will be, 2016 or 2017.

I just really hope it doesn't actually turn into what the OUYA is right now.



readyletsgo commented on Speculation Grows That AMD Will Provide the Ni...:

I feel like I'm in a very small minority but backwards compatibility with Wii and WiiU games is not important with nintys next home console. 3rd party and their own new first party games are.

I'm sure they will figure out how to get Wii and WiiU games to emulate on the 'NX' a year or two later as download, but right now? No, focus on your new system and games please.



readyletsgo commented on Review: LEGO Jurassic World (Wii U):

I've been playing through the 3ds version this past week. On the bus mainly. I like it, but it's missing large chunks of the main bits from the film.

I don't really mind though cause I'm playing through Lego City Undercover on WiiU in the evenings, love that game so much so that I bought Lego City for 3ds, Lego Batman 2 and 3, and the Lego Avengers for WiiU. I'm pretty charmed by them so far. But I will pass on Dimensions I think this year
Too much money.

Pity about Jurassic World not being up to scratch on WiiU but can't win everything.



readyletsgo commented on Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confir...:

I think it's gonna sell really well on ps4 and xbone (and prob ps3 and 360 I'd say). It'll be a generic fps without the gamepad and Ubisoft will want the assassin creed and COD crowd to buy it. It just might work if they actually update the graphics and online. They might



readyletsgo commented on Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confir...:

I got it twice, once at launch, sold it, then again on sale for €9.99 on the eshop last year cause I never really got into it and wanted to try again, never did. Might now.

But I bet this will be a download only game with same graphics but gamepad stuff taken out.

I think this franchise has legs, just launched on the wrong system at the wrong time. It has potential to be a big and good zombie franchise set in different countries in each new game. We had our chance 3 years ago, Nintendo WiiU owners didn't bite, so let a bigger audience try it.

I prob will again cause I'm a sucka :p



readyletsgo commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

@Snader yes I totally hear and understand that argument. But the main areas of sales are eupore, America and Japan. Google play and Apple store are mainly Europe America and to a lesser extent Japan I think(?). It's where the money is. I'm in Ireland, most of our broadband is rubbish at the moment except for Dublin and cork but there is an upgrade coming for us so speeds will be faster. I could say the same for the rest of Europe and America. MS did it and went back on it. I would think Ninty would have worked out a new system for this. Download is where the money is €1 games make millions every month. DeNA are looking to make €25 mill a month. Everything to me just points to download only. Sony and MS next system will be download only in years to come I'm sure of it. But Ninty have a chance to get into this new market in the home/handheld market before the other two do.

I feel it in my waters.



readyletsgo commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

July release in 2016, would be a bit silly in my eyes as most people are in holiday/festivals/sunshine mode, but Ninty have done strange things over the years so I wouldn't put it past them.

I do remember Iwata (or one of the big wigs) talking about Apple's OS last year and how he envys it in how streamlined it is etc. Take that with Amazon market place rumour and android rumour and the NX could be a new system yes, but with Nintendo's own mulity platform OS that works perfectly on the WiiU, 3DS, phones and pc's along with this new '3rd pillar' NX so everyone can ease into Nintendo's OS and eventually move over to the NX between July'16 and July'17.

They did say that with the mobile games they are working on with DeNA could be ways to push people to the NX or wiiu/3ds ie Nintendo products.

So then that makes me think the NX is gonna be an all digital system, no discs, with full Nintendo network username accounts working across everything like the PS3 PS4 VITA and PC.
Kinda like the OUYA with a standard controller but much better thought out and full backwards compatibility with WiiU (with gamepad compatibility) Wii (with a port for the little sensor you already have), GameCube, n64, snes, nes, gb/c/a, 3ds and ds. So all the back cat download only. Since everyone and their mother can run emulators on android I think Ninty will make one emulator for each older system so every older game runs perfectly with no hiccups. I can see that happening.

Then with a full NX game launch of say 8 1st party games and as many as possible 3rd party games too, download only. I know a lot of people hate download only, but I guess we are a very small minority now. Money is in download. Cheaper downloads.

But this system will HAVE to come with at least 1TB of internal storage from the get go. I can see them launching something like this for €199 since there would be no moving parts like disc in it etc.

Just a thought.

I love my physical media to bits as much as the next guy on here. But Ninty have one chance here and I think that's what's gonna get people to buy. Download only but Ninty OS like Android or iOS which will be very hard to hack. And they could start to release newer faster versions of a NX every 2 years.

Also, most people on here seem to forget that Ninty lie ALL THE TIME. Just remember that when they deny something then a year later it's true.

Anyway, that's my contribution, don't distroy me please. Just my thoughts.

Also, Zelda U will also be Zelda NX in 2 years time ;p



readyletsgo commented on Rumour: Former Rare Composer David Wise Is Wor...:

@abe_hikura yeah, this is it. I never played Other M, I heard it was not up to Prime standards, and in fairness I still see new copies in Gameslop for no more than €10 max. So it bombed.

I would say, if Ninty try another stab at Metroid it will be on the 3ds, something different from the normal Metroid, maybe call it Federation Force? See how that goes with the bigger wider audience on the 3ds then take it from there.

I see what they are doing, and I agree with them as a very small side business idea, not much to lose on it.



readyletsgo commented on Rumour: Former Rare Composer David Wise Is Wor...:

Is DK a massive selling for Ninty like Mario? If it is then it's a new DK for the WiiU or 3ds. Or DKR2.

Idk, I still need to play tropical freeze , its super hard, and I have waaaay too many WiiU games to get through without being stuck on one for ages :) that's a good thing.



readyletsgo commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

Hmm, I kinda find it hard to believe that Nintendo would present their new system (privately, behind closed doors etc) to publishers at such a high profile show like e3 (a leak of it would clearly happen, in my eyes anyway), they prob have been presenting the NX to publishers privately over the past 3 months.

Also they may be impressed with what it is, sure. But if it doesn't fly off the shelves in the first 6 to 8 months then they will lose 3rd party support again in the first year, so it better be a beast of a system with a standard controller.

No more gimmicks Ninty, please!
