remlapgamer commented on Poll: Does Nintendo's Drive Towards Multiplaye...:

I believe it is an aim at profit mostly with 3ds because probably each player will have to have the game so when someone buys a game, they will influence others to purchase it also so they can play together. Sounds like I'm crazy, but I promise that is written as a main topic/financial accomplishment on a board for everyone to see during the initial design and marketing of the game.

remlapgamer commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

Nintendo needs to shake their own company tree and cut ties with their old ways and make really good business decisions that involves meeting customer demands and expectations. I truly can't believe a company with the most loyal customers-yes-the MOST loyal customers, wouldn't take the simple, reasonable, and down to earth wishes their amazingly loyal customers offer. They don't need us to respond to a Twitter feed. All the research they need on how to deliver what their fans want is easily found at the bottom of many,many articles about their company on websites just like this one. I read so many comments from so many loyal fans, I could have a 2 minute conversation with anyone from Nintendo and tell them what their fans want. This is one of the only companies I've seen where their customers can't wait to purchase their products

remlapgamer commented on Nintendo Hoping That Splatoon Will Tempt Lapse...:

I've tried to talk my 13 year old into this game, but he wants no part of online play where he can't speak to other players. That's the consensus among all of his friends. I can't convince nor am I going to try anymore. Maybe he will get to play a downloadable demo and change his mind.

It's awesome you responded to my comments. As far a who could do this right, Wayforward would do well, but I think Drinkbox would really push it appropriately and would likely mix humor with nostalgia for the ultimate experience.

remlapgamer commented on Retrospective: Sega's Streets of Rage Series:

Three things. First of all, the article is excellent. I have played the first 2 games countless times years ago and this article is making want to break out my Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and give them a shot.
Secondly,.I wasn't aware of Sega shooting down the indie remake that they gunned down.
Thirdly, I believe there is enough of a market for this game that a reboot would sell well. It would need to cover all platforms of consoles and.handhelds also including Steam and upcoming services. They would have to stick closely to the original to keep the.nostalgia factor. An announcement of this game a couple of months ahead of time for anticipation, and teaser clips leading to the release could mean instant revenue. I could easily see 300,000+ downloads.

I think the "NX" could do for Nintendo what the iPhone did for Apple. I think this could push traditional business in a Big and good way. I imagine free to play games will likely have some Nintendo advertising. I'm excited and I think the Big N is about to take off in a way we've never seen. They have the entire gaming worlds attention because everyone is afraid of how it will be, but deep down we all know it will be a Giant. It's all speculation, but we know it's true.

Push current hardware and software with deep price cuts to beef up the install base before the home run hitters are released. 3ds history shows that taking a huge loss to put your system in more households will ignite sales. The return should make up for the loss and increase profits. That's if it is highly advertised.

Amiibo great idea , followed yet again by terrible ideas. This is a repetitive trend and they think they are doing well with the hype over people trying to get these, but the reality is that they are upsetting loyal customers. This company is powered by loyal customers. If you can't bring enough for everyone, don't bring it at all. If.your limited on supplies then you need a loyalty program. I know I'm rehashing what everyone else is saying, but I've had it and so far passed pissed that I just don't care anymore. I guess I should give up. Same OLD company, same old ways. Plenty of places around the world need work. Hire, build, supply, satisfy. The majority of us are unsatisfied and have become tireless.

SEGA, old school 2d Sonic is your key. Also couldn't hurt to make a Streets of Rage game, be it a sequel, prequel, or revamped existing game. Then port them to 3ds, Vita, and all the home consoles. Make sure you make an amazing game. Stay in your wheelhouse.

@FritzFrapp Excellent statement. NOA is swinging and missing again. "If you build it, they will come". If you don't build enough it's lost sales and irritated customers who really want it and are left to the thieves of eBay and Amazon. Top if off with lost software sales and a hit to revenue. More units would likely help resolve this.

remlapgamer commented on Nintendo of America Issues Non-Statement on th...:

Nintendo and American retailers are having to deal with the previous existing supply on store shelves and the "New" products will drive those prices down . The smaller "New" model will only push them further. We'll know in a couple of weeks depending on how far prior model prices fall. This is likely why the American market was a latter one for the new model.

remlapgamer commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

All these opinions, I think we should all complain that there hasn't been any mention of a Metroid game for this generation. Nintendo is too cautious and needs to stretch their legs. You have so many franchises and you should definitely make a game for every franchise for every generation. Produce and sell what you own, that's the point right. Nintendo has the sluggers, but they have to swing the bat to hit the ball, but you have to swing or nothing will happen. Maybe a walk. You gotta swing the bat.

I always want to play Contra, but then I do and I remember how unforgiving and difficult this series is and how much I suck at them. Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, b, a, start. I could only get past the end of the third level in Hard Corps, but I do love Contra games.

remlapgamer commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

Wow! Now everyone calm down. If they were accurate, they only represent 3 of about 30 holiday shopping days of the Christmas season. Albeit the biggest 3, there's still 27 days, and there is no way we know how accurate this information is. Let's not lose our cool over what might be very skewed. If these numbers did carry some truth, It's still just 3 days. Microsoft shareholders are still ultra pissed about the price drop. Nintendo is watching closely.

remlapgamer commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

I have a tie between New Super Mario Bros Wii U and Super Mario Galaxy 2. I always felt like they did really well building on the prior game. The prior games were awesome also. Too many great Mario games-Super Mario 3, Super Mario World.
