shigulicious commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):

@C-Olimar I read that NOA doesn't have the system in place where it can tell if you already purchased the game on the 3ds. Same story as the Pushmo deal. So to answer your question, no. I'm not happy with NOA myself. I know Reggie is iconic. But I don't like what he has done here in terms of promotions for games.



shigulicious commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

The article seemed too long winded and I didn't finish reading it. I will say that paying $5 for ANY NES title is ridiculous. The GBA games on the eshop are a little more reasonable because of the improvements that Tom mentioned. But when you look at the deals that the other consoles have, not even including the free games with Gold members and PS+, Nintendo is operating in their own alternate reality. I downloaded Dishonored for free this week on the 360. What does NOA have in store? We will see tomorrow, but if past actions remain constant, I expect to be underwhelmed. I always thought a "pick 5" system would work great for the eshop where the consumer can choose a number of games out of a selected bunch for a discount. For example, pick 5 of the existing GBA games for $25. That would create excitement and revenue for Nitty. I perceive the company as a penny pinching Grandma, stuck in an earlier era. Not to bash Nintendo. I love Nintendo. But their pricing on the eshop, plus their reluctance to compete with the other "big 2" is annoying as hell.



shigulicious commented on Only 3DS Games Sold Over One Million Copies in...:

@Mega719 yep. It's the advertising that helped for sure. I envision Hyrule Warriors to sell well for the same reason. I know it will do well in Japan, but Dynasty Warriors fans in North America are hard to find. Since Nintendo threw at us announcement trailers of all of those Zelda characters though, the game looks to be on track to perform well here too. I can say that because the game has been on Amazons top 20 video games for over a week and we still have a month before release.



shigulicious commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:

How about a portion of the proceeds of Zelda U go to funding for a cure for Parkinson's disease? Or Depression awareness? Honoring him in a game is cute, but it won't make the world a better place. Robin Williams made the world a better place.
