remlapgamer commented on Talking Point: My Nintendo Can Be a Tipping Po...:

Was it necessary to end Club Nintendo to only take almost a year to replace it?. Just curious. I'm glad they've brought "My Nintendo", but it seems like wii u digital deluxe promotion again but not as good. when the competition has "Games with Gold" and "Ps Plus", I expected something better. I'm just not excited. I'm willing to pay an annual subscription for amazing features.



remlapgamer commented on Wii U Named as "The Top Selling Item on Target...:

The price is really good for the bundle if you could get your hands on one. Only one bundle left at my Target one hour after they opened the doors thursday. It looked awesome seeing 20 Xbox one's and 20 ps4's surrounding the Wii U bundle in floor. I regret not taking a picture.



remlapgamer commented on Kirby Stars Alongside Wario and Steamy Strateg...:

It's pretty embarrassing when retailers and amazon store sellers can beat the price of the Big N and do so with physical versus digital. I guess the way Nintendo looks at it is they still profit from the retail sale but some consumers are too lazy to shop around, order, or even the drive to the store. The only justice I see is if someone prefers digital, or can't get the physical copy due to availability, or they don't have access to transportation to get a physical copy. There is also the idea that Nintendo does not want to sell at a lower price than retailers because they need someone to sell physical copies and to fill that role and under cutting the retailers that sell your property might influence them not to. There's also the security of Nintendo Network ID storing your purchase of the title and can download games again even if you replace your system, and who knows you may be able to download games on future systems although I doubt that. I'm still aggravated about the pricing. Oh well. I'm sticking to physical, feels more safe? Don't know why but it does.

I'm glad I'm purchasing Splatoon this Friday for my son. I'm convinced by everyone else this game must be good. We both haven't been convinced in the past watching the gameplay, but I gotta admit the ONE thing Nintendo has truly impressed me is tje repetitive FREE additional content and that keeps this game fresh and everyone is still talking about it. When your customers are talking good, your doing something right and this game is talked about on this website almost every day and came out 6 months ago. I'm sold.



remlapgamer commented on Video: Nintendo Makes a Holiday Pitch for Wii ...:

I still remember the sega genesis advertising before Christmas of 1991anf it consisted of showing around 20 games and they were really quick clips in a 25-30 second commercial. I still remember seeing many games that appealed to me and that commercial convinced me to buy the console. I am always for showing more games versus longer clips if trying to sell consoles, but I'll say this commercial is pretty good at trying to do both. I really like the pirahna plant shooting fire.



remlapgamer commented on Super Smash Bros. + Splatoon Wii U Hardware Bu...:

I am mostly shocked there is not going to be a price cut for Wii U going into Black Friday. I really anticipated a Hail Mary play by Nintendo to make a hefty reduction especially with competitors prices being so close and the weak slate of games coming out. The Ps4 and XboxOne have major games and awesome bundles on the way that are honestly more desirable.



remlapgamer commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Delays With My Ninte...:

I really enjoy being rewarded with points for my purchases and has me hesitant to get games when I can wait and get the games likely cheaper at a later date with rewards. Should've kept Club Nintendo at least until the holidays. Just sayin it makes better sense.



remlapgamer commented on Nintendo Has Unannounced Wii U And 3DS Titles ...:

Twilight Princess HD would sell really well and temporarily satisfy our extreme lack of "Quality" Zelda. Pikmin 3 is still rotting away on my console so Pikman 4 will likely not garner my desires, not that the gameplay is bad,it just doesn't suit me. But I hope they have plenty of success and people are happy, always good to get surprised by games unannounced.



remlapgamer commented on Talking Point: As Rumours Come and Go the Desp...:

The NX is ways off. They'd be crazy to interrupt possible Wii U sales for the holidays. Nintendo needs to sell as many consoles asap. Hopefully DeNA info soon and a Wii U price cut and a clip of Zelda to secure sales. Bring on a Direct



remlapgamer commented on Editorial: It's Far Too Soon to Go Download-On...:

If they would mail the special edition physical items for people who decide to download versus physical retail, then I wouldn't mind downloading more. I bought a 1TB hard drive about a year ago and I still buy physical at times because I want what comes with the game. It's also convenient to have a game to trade if it sucks. They would also convince me download more if they discounted the download price being as you are missing special items that come with game and are unable to trade. Not to mention the lack of a replacement rewards system. I have temporarily stopped all Nintendo purchasing until they have a new rewards system. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Bout time the Lord giveths-Right? But death of the disc is bad. I believe there should still be the option.



remlapgamer commented on Editorial: A Wii U Price Cut is Still Worthwhi...:

Profit is the sore subject and the means of any business. The idea of a loss is usually a bad plan in business but long term planning should be the utmost importance. I know Nintendo is trying to bring in revenue by not cutting the price, but a massive cut before the holidays would shift more units and long term that much more software and many more satisfied customers and will come back in the long term. $190 sounds insane, but would shift tons of units and massive amounts of software, more importantly, the "Brand" will be talked about and have excitement around it again. Massive cut, intial loss, recover in software, and compete again. Profit will still be in the picture. 3.4 million units, you should be ashamed. You're better than that.



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.



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

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.



remlapgamer commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

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.



remlapgamer commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Highlights Nintendo's Strengt...:

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.
