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.

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.

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.

Nintendo should be pursuing Tell Tale to create a Wii U version now after reading most of these comments. I think this will leave most fans wanting the Tell Tale series. Who knows-Nintendo may have wanted this game from Zen to test the waters and hear the fans opinions. Genius if it were true.

remlapgamer commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Should categorize this poll into groups, best story, game play, villains, levels, items, ect.-Just a thought-Skyword Sword really gave me the best emotional connection, Ocarina of Time had such an open world feeling to it-not that the prior 2D versions didn't.

i think splatoon is intended for children and might be a good title for them, reminds me of plants vs zombies garden warfare shooter edited so its content/material will be approved by parents for their young children, but I will probably get it anyway because Nintendo will get this right and it will be fun.

This was only a concern because someone wanted to make it concern, i think you would have trouble finding someone who cared enough to trash Nintendo or Mariokart for this profitable move. I actually find it interesting now that light has been shed on this.

remlapgamer commented on Nintendo To Market Mario Kart 8 Through The En...:

This sounds like a great way to sell consoles and should go to E3 with very positive momentum. Games sell consoles, a great marketing plan could sell even more games. Nintendo needs to run wild with this game because it will live up to it's hype and very soon word of mouth will spread. Store demos also seem critical-especially if they would make them available now so people will talk about it.

remlapgamer commented on Just 2% of Ubisoft's Q3 Sales Were for Wii U:

The delay of Rayman Legends always left a sour taste in my mouth and the loss of the exclusivity. I was ready many months in advance to purchase this when there weren't so many Wii U games to choose from. The delay killed the Wii U Rayman Legends total sales numbers because there were too many big titles were surrounding it-Pikmin, WIndwaker, Skylanders.they missed there moment of dominance. Still might pick up the game though because I'm sure it is excellent. maybe things will turn around for Ubisoft and Wii U

remlapgamer commented on Nintendo of America Running TVii Sweepstakes D...:

The TVii function is great with NFL games and I honestly think it makes great use of the game pad and gives you something Playstation and Microsoft can't. The way it works is it will ask you statistical type questions throughout the game and keep score of how many you got right or wrong at the top. The questions are usually based on how many yards you will think a certain player will get, turnovers, tackles, first downs, if the team will score or punt on this possession, ect. There is also a timer of about 10 seconds because the game is live and that makes it even better. I found this to be very entertaining because half of the time you're watching a game you are making your own predictions in your mind anyway. This is a must for NFL fans and anyone who is not will still find entertainment value in this. My wife and I just wan't to know who's adding the questions because they are very tuned in and ask great questions.
