shinobi88 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Third-Party Concern...:

Does anyone know why they made FIVE Call of Duty games for DS? Take a big guess. I'll give ya a second...You ready? Because they SOLD. One of em even sold over a million copies. So when I say a hardcore 3DS shooter or action game would be good for the system and the developer, I'm stating facts. If you think it wouldn't, you're just using your imagination. And Neverland is a great place for that, I'll tell ya how to get there

I don't bash anyone for their gaming preferences. It's cool if you're a Pokemon or Power Rangers nerd. I don't exclusively like hardcore games. I play games that I'd consider softcore. But I do like my hardcore experiences. A perfect world, not the 3DS world biased towards non-hardcore games, would see a near equal representation in all gaming categories. I'm not even ask for equal representation, but at least a COUPLE hardcore games. It makes no sense that there are no hardcore 3DS games honestly. But very little in the gaming world makes sense. Like why Capcom never makes new Mega Man games

Holy heck, she is cute! Cat ears an everythin. I like most things Halloween, so the witch attracted me here. But the backgrounds look too cheery, I don't get a Halloween vibe at all. And the bad guys look like goldfish crackers and Kirbys. Maybe closer to All Hollow's Eve this'll have a stronger appeal to me, but right now I'm dousing this witch with water

shinobi88 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Third-Party Concern...:

I have to clarify something:

Hardcore does not equal "a hard game". A hard game is called "a hard game". Hardcore = a game that pushes your adrenaline to the max by putting you in constant kill or be killed situations with no time to think. A game where you take off your shirt, tie on a headband, and blast aliens into lil pieces with a spread machine gun.

RPGs with turn-based battles, no matter how difficult, are not hardcore. You ever been in a fight? (That ain't the same as being picked on, which I'm sure most of you people have experience with). In a fight, the other kid, alien, or terrorist doesn't wait for you to take your turn attacking. There is no adrenaline rush from hitting a button and watchin someone else attack a stationary target. That's a mental exercise.

But hardcore experiences don't exist on 3DS. There's some REALLY good experiences in all the softcore genres. But hardcore games, even hardcore sports like football and basketball, don't exist on 3DS. We have golf. That's not gonna draw the attention of the hardcore gamers on PS3 & Xbox 360 who spent $500 million on Call of Duty Black Ops 2 in ONE DAY. Most of those same users grew up with Nintendo and a Game Boy and they got nothing against owning a Nintendo handheld, but it's not worth the investment if there's no hardcore experiences for em. So when one of the dudes in the comments above said somethin like "the 3DS only has games for 12 year olds", that was an exaggerated way of expressin the point I'm making. Only nerds and little kids get appeased with Pokemon. We hardcore gamers come to kick and chew bubblegum. And we're all out of bubblegum so we need some games that let us kick.

@Macarony64, it's pretty self-explanatory. I didn't say "3DS doesn't have enough games that Macarony64 wants". I said it doesn't have ANY hardcore games in development. See the difference? I'm talking the typical American, testocerone-filled teenage/college-age guy kinda hardcore, like where you shoot stuff, blow stuff, or assassinate people in the 3rd dimension. It doesn't even have a SINGLE 1st person shooter, fer cryin out loud. Even the DS had over 10 of those. You think the N64 would be so fondly remembered by all ages without Perfect Dark and Goldeneye? I'm not talking nerd hardcore, like turn-based RPGs and Pokemon collecting. There's plenty of that.

The 3DS has an xcellent collection of games in the genres it does represent. But it doesn't represent every genre. It could achieve even higher sales (which you probably don't even see as necessary since they're #1 in the world, but money is money), if it diversified its library. The end

The 3DS hasn't lived up to its full potential. Which is kinda amazing considering it's far and away the top selling system in the world. If you'll recall, when 3DS was 1st shown at E3, there were a TON of hardcore 3rd party games announced, including Saints Row, Assassin's Creed, and Contra.

BUT, when the 3DS got off to a slow start, and possibly due to the fact that the people who were buying near launch skewed way towards the younger crowd, all those hardcore games got canceled. And you know how many hardcore games have been announced since that first 3DS reveal? A whopping ZERO. Resident Evil Revelations was already in development before the reveal and Capcom's other hardcore game, E.X. Troopers, never made it West.

If 3DS had more appeal to the hardcore crowd, like a Call of Duty or an Assassin's Creed fer instance, its sale numbers would be record breaking. Hopefully, a solid 3rd party dev realizes there's a GIANT hole in the hardcore 1st-person shooter & 3rd-person action genres on 3DS and jumps at the opportunity to bring us a big IP. Heck, I'd just be happy if Nintendo realized this and gave us Metroid Prime Hunters 3D

@unrandomsam, you show your lack of intelligent arguing skills AGAIN by saying Bit.Trip.Runner is better than Mutant Mudds b/c it scored higher on Nintendo Life. NLife's review is just one human's opinion, a miniscule piece of a bigger puzzle. When looking at ALL the review scores, you can see that Mudds clearly beats Runner in the eyes of critics (80% vs. 76%) and has a higher % of positive user reviews on both Gamefaqs and Metacritic.

I said Mudds was better than over 80% of SNES games, and every game you listed could be considered in the Top 25 SNES games of all-time, which would be in the top 1%. You again show your lack of intelligent arguing skills. Look, you and me have different opinions. I wouldn't play Super Meat Boy if my life depended on it because it looks like a flash game. NO, I repeat NO, retro-styled indie game stacks up to the best games from the original 8-bit and 16-bit era. You know why? Because in those eras, there were no 3D games. So EVERY developer, all the best 1st & 3rd party teams, were working on 2D side-scrollers. So obviously when you have the very best organized dev teams in the WORLD working on games vs. a couple small teams of slacker indie devs, it's no contest. For me, Mudds is the closest eShop game to capturing that retro magic. Switch Force is too short, which is a BIG no-no if you were a game back in the 16-bit era, so it's disqualified from this convo of quality. And Shantae DSI has a HORRIBLE map, which is kinda important in a Metroidvania game, so it's disqualified on a technical basis. Mudds reigns supreme! (Mutant Mudds Deluxe actually, since it's the best version. But if this retail version ever gets made, IT should have the best content)

shinobi88 commented on 3D Versions Of Shinobi III And Streets Of Rage...:

@unrandomSam, you lost ALL credibility when you referred to 'Mutant Mudds' as junk. It is not an opinion, it is FACT to say that 'Mudds' is better than over 80% of SNES games. And the review scores back that up. It's perfectly programmed, has an amazing soundtrack, and beautiful to look at. It was even BASED primarily off SNES games! And to think, that was Renegade Kid's 1st foray into 2D gaming. I'm sure Treasurenauts will be better than even 90% of SNES games. I'm not a fan of most new downloadable titles, but maybe you can do your homework next time and pick on one of those extremely lame physics flingers or endless runners if you don't want people to think you're dumb.

We'd all like to see some SNES & GBA games on the VC (Can I get an Astro Boy shout out??). We'd all like to see as MANY retro games on the eShop as possible (actually I'd prefer 20 games jammed onto a collectible compilation cart). But Ninty is slow, that's how they roll.

shinobi88 commented on Boxed Copies of Mutant Mudds May Be Possible:

"The point" is that most of us have had physical copies of games our whole lives. We love everything about em. The collectible nature of the box & booklet, how it looks on a shelf or in a shoebox. The nostalgia induced from inserting a cart into a system, maybe even blowing onto the cart for old time's sake. The ease of playing the game on multiple systems. And for me personally, security. Because I don't trust that if I lose a digital copy of a game in a few years, and it's no longer available on the eShop, that I'll be able to get it back without resorting to piracy. Which is something I would never like to do as a I fancy myself as a super hero. Plus, Jools himself has said we could be gettin new, exclusive content with this potential physical release. And NOTHIN beats that

shinobi88 commented on 3D Versions Of Shinobi III And Streets Of Rage...:

I'm gonna offer a bit of a shocking twist here, and reveal that this Shinobi prefers Streets of Rage over Shinobi III. SoR 1 is my second fave Genesis game of ALL-TIME behind REVENGE of Shinobi (which Sega always seems hesitant to reproduce for some reason, even though they've solved the Spider-Man licensing issue). And the SoR soundtrack is my fave all-time Genesis soundtrack, which is sayin a lot considerin the competition it gets from games like SoR 2 & Castlevania Bloodlines (which would be an INSANELY awesome 3D Classic) . It's really impossible to explain how each level's tune in SoR gets you more jacked up to bash skulls. The best I can do is to warn you that it's hard not to have a seizure when you get to Stage 5 and the pulse-pounding beat is kickin as literally like 20 thugs come on screen simultaneously to attack you

Since Sega has all these 3D Classics in the works now, I'd like if they released em all as a retail compilation, with some bonuses such as developer interviews & cheat codes, like on the Genesis Collection for PSP.

shinobi88 commented on Boxed Copies of Mutant Mudds May Be Possible:

Jools Watsham, aka the head of Renegade Kid, runs one of the best blogs I've seen in the gaming industry. When he wrote about this on the blog, I commented that since Mudds 1 has been available for so long, it would be a good idea to add some extra content to the physical release. He JUST responded to my comment and said this: "Thanks for the response. Adding something special to the boxed copy of Mudds, such as new content, is something we would certainly entertain."

So if you were on the fence about this idea, prepare to jump off and wait in line with me!

shinobi88 commented on Boxed Copies of Mutant Mudds May Be Possible:

I'd LOVE to have a physical copy of Max, just for the collectibility of the box & instruction booklet. I think it should include some bonus content compared to the original eShop version, like the "ghost" levels, fer instance. But can you imagine Max in all his NES-style painted box art glory like the box art for Mega Man 2??

shinobi88 commented on First Impressions: Yoshi's New Island:

I assume you all like retro games since you're viewing this topic about a retro IP. What is one of the things that retro games always had? A good level of challenge. Doesn't it suck to pick up a game and rush through it in an hour? Kinda makes it a pointless experience.

I'm only mentioning this because there's a company called Little Orbit. They only make licensed games for Wii U, Wii, 3DS, and DS. They don't have the greatest licenses, but they got some decent ones in the works with 'Young Justice: Legacy', 'Monster High: 13 Wishes', and 'Barbie Dreamhouse Party'. Ok, ok, I know two of those are girly. But a good game is a good game. If you could go back in time, wouldn't you all have bought WayForward's 'Sabrina the Animated Series' and 'Shantae' on the Game Boy Color , knowing now that even though they look girly they were really great games?

Little Orbit has only made ONE game in its history: "Monster High Skulltimate Roller Maze". The 3DS version got some decent reviews like 68% positive from ImpulseGamer and 70% positive from GamesFiends. Those scores ain't amazing, but they ain't bad either. It shows me Orbit isn't interested in just pushin out shovelware. Here's the whole point of this: They always put 3 difficulty levels in their games. And for the 'Hard' difficulty they program it so it would be hard for the target audience, like a 13 year old girl for Monster High, instead of just making it really hard for ANY gamer. I've emailed Little Orbit and told em that I'd seriously consider buying their games if they were well programmed and had an old-school, NES level of difficulty on the 'Hard' setting. It NEVER hurt to have as many good games on 3DS as possible, so if good licensed games interest you at all like they do me, shoot an e-mail over to Little Orbit and tell em you'd like an old-school challenge

4 VC games & 4 eShop games for 3DS is awesome! I'll be tryin out Kokuga since it's by the dude who made Ikaruga, maybe Urban Trials, and maybe even a Ghostly Groove or two since I dig the Halloween theme. And Sonic Labyrinth looks very cool for my VC collection. Spelunker even looks cool even though N-Life is tryin to bash it. I don't think 67% positive user review scores on Gamefaqs qualifies it as one of the worst games ever

shinobi88 commented on Iwata: Japanese Third Parties Investing More I...:

@Coren, please quit addressing me. You don't make sense. You do realize that a comment like, "We're not talking about the DS, we're talking about the 3DS" implies that you think the DS is somehow more capable of producing the 3D graphics an FPS requires than a 3DS is? Wow. Three cheers for your perfect grasp of reality.

The 3DS has a second slider, it's called the Circle Pad Pro. Again, thank you for your perfect grasp of reality. But as the many DS FPSs showed, the stylus offers a perfect level of precision.

And it is incredibly ignorant to make generalized statements about an entire group. You accuse Western developers of recycling the same ideas, which implies that Eastern developers don't. Which perfectly explains New Super Mario Bros./New Super Mario Bros. Wii, New Super Mario Bros., New Super Mario Bros. 2, New Super Luigi U and how about Super Mario 3D Land/Super Mario 3D World. For a third time, I'm amazed at the reality grasping. Every developer recycles ideas. They're called sequels

It is not my opinion that a Call of Duty game would increase 3DS console sales. Every fact and figure reinforces the idea. An opinion would be if I said I think it would be an exciting game. Which I do. And you don't have to. For real, my last response to you.

TREASURE!!!

shinobi88 commented on Video: Disney's Planes Trailer Flies Into View:

I'm glad it's so easy to get information about the 3DS versions of these games (detect sarcasm, por favor). Hopefully the 3DS version mirrors the version from that trailer (and it should considerin the graphics aren't all that). And hopefully the DS version is a side-scroller or vertical-shooter for a lil variety of choice

shinobi88 commented on Iwata: Japanese Third Parties Investing More I...:

@Coren, your arguments, I mean "points" still do not make a lick of sense. When you say console & handheld games differ, you're implying that 1st person shooters are exclusively a console genre? I am just not comprehending why you would even say that considering the DS alone had over ten 1st-person shooters. 3DS does not have one. And it is a statement of fact, whether judged by the statistics I have mentioned previously, or the fact that a recent Game Informer poll showed that 1st person shooters were the #1 fan favorite genre among its readers, that the 3DS would see improved sales in the West if it added a few to its catalog . I cannot talk to someone whose points make no sense, so I'll save myself a headache and stop.

On the topic of Japanese 3rd party studios, if the title Treasure announced to be in development for the 3DS doesn't come to the states, I'll make the Incredible Hulk look like a pacifist...

shinobi88 commented on Iwata: Japanese Third Parties Investing More I...:

@Coren, You ARE arguing, and not very well I might add. First off, none of the handheld shooters that have been released to date, are ports. They're all original entries in major franchises. I also clearly stated in my last message that 4 of the 5 Call of Duty games on DS received very good review scores, and that the developer who did the poorly reviewed Call of Duty Vita game isn't even in the business anymore. And it's not like Activision didn't care about quality when it selected that dev, considerin the dev had experience working on console games and their last two had both received a 7.5 out of 10 score from Gamespot. So assuming that a 3DS Call of Duty entry would be of poor quality is nonsensical, to put it nicely. And the Vita isn't selling because it's overpriced. We all know how well the 3DS sold when it was overpriced. But thanks for looking at real life factors in your points again. 3DS needs Western-styled 3rd party action games like Assassin's Creed and Call of Duty, along with the 1st party and Eastern 3rd party games that it's currently gettin if it hopes to become as big here as it is in Japan. Which is pretty crucial to Nintendo's survival since the WiiU ain't sellin

shinobi88

shinobi88 commented on Iwata: Japanese Third Parties Investing More I...:

@Coren, there are NO 1st person shooters on the 3DS. All I own are handhelds. So it's really nice for you if the WiiU has a nice array of shooters. But 3DS doesn't. And we HAVE had a chance to see that Eastern games don't have the same appeal over here. Monster Hunter Tri, arguably the biggest name 3rd party Eastern IP, sold roughly 1.9 million copies in Japan when it released on 3DS. You know how many copies that same game sold in the US and Europe combined? Roughly 220,000 copies. See any difference? Please use real life in your argument points

FURTHERmore, picking ONE bad handheld 1st person shooter out of the many that have been released is another brilliant argument strategy on your part. Good job NOT looking at Metroid Prime Hunters (85% Meta-score) and 4 out of the 5 Call of Duty games on DS that all scored at least 73% positive on Metecritic, or Dementium & Dementium II both over 72%. Factor in that all of those were on the DS, which had extremely primitive 3D tech, and imagine what kind of quality shooters we could have on the 3DS, in 3D!

Oh, btw, that Call of Duty Vita you mentioned, despite having a 30% Metascore (luckily the devs of that game dropped down to digital gaming only) sold almost 700,000 copies in the West alone, AND moved a lot of Vita systems. Which is my WHOLE point. Different game genres appeal to different markets. 3DS wants to reach its max potential in the States, its gotta diversify its portfolio

shinobi88 commented on Iwata: Japanese Third Parties Investing More I...:

@Coren, Japan has the EXACT same consoles to choose from as the US. So there is NO reason that it's possible for the 3DS to consistently hold a 50%+ market share in Japan and be at 18.5% in the West from Jan-March of this year.

It is incredibly ignorant to think each market wants the exact same games. There is NO data that supports that. You want to sell in the West, you have to have Western-styled games, or else constantly be pushing out huge name IPs with world-wide appeal like Animal Crossing.

1st and 3rd person shooters won't take away from the localization of your precious JRPGs that don't move 3DS systems over here anyway, but these big name shooters like Call fo Duty Ghosts, Ghost Recon Patriots, or even a Metroid Prime Hunters sequel, would cause systems to sell. The more systems that sell, the more people want to make games for it. That is good for the system. So quit being a selfish punk and embrace everyone's gaming tastes

shinobi88

#31

shinobi88 commented on Iwata: Japanese Third Parties Investing More I...:

@Coren, there hasn't been a single 1st person shooter on 3DS. And a whopping 3 third person shooters, in the West at least. If you cared about the future of the 3DS and not just your own interest, you'd WANT more shooters on the 3DS. The 3DS has a 50% market share in Japan, that's why they're gettin a buttload of 3rd party games. It only holds about a 20% market share in the West, BECAUSE of that lack of shooters that appeal to a large % of Westerners. A well made Call of Duty 3DS game would move a lot of systems off the shelf over here. And more systems sold, more games for us to choose from. More games = GOOD. End of discussion

So Retro WASN'T working on simultaneous Metroid Prime WiiU & 3DS games together, after all. Which leaves us with exactly ZERO first person shooters in the 3DS retail catalog. Activision released FIVE Call of Duty titles onto the DS, so they have a relationship with Nintendo. It would be great to see how they would bring Call of Duty Ghosts to the 3DS. If you'd like to see that, you MUST show em your interest by calling them at (800) 225-6588 and requesting to see Call of Duty Ghosts on 3DS

Well mateys, I be ABSOLUTELY amazed at this one. I come here for video game news or reviews and I get a feature article about butt cheeks.

Are the majority of you so INSANELY thick that you can't realize the point of the censorship was to keep the game classy enough so as not to show bare butt cheeks? If you think the cloak cover makes it look like something else, that's how you're dirty mind works. Use your brains for ONE time. Just ONCE. Please. If you watch a movie and see someone get shot off screen, can you still imagine the dude getting shot? Ya. But if they actually show the dude get shot and his head explodes in a bloody mess the kid watchin it is gonna get disturbed, desensitized to violence, and go on a shooting spree 8 years later.

It takes a little bit of inner strength, ya know, somethin heroes have, not overweight people that live in their mom's basement and talk on video game forums, to be able to stand for somethin. This game has the stance that we're not gonna show butt cheeks cause it ain't classy. Chrom's shorts don't show cheek so I have no idea why his pic is even in the article.

shinobi88 commented on Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo Swinging Into The...:

I NEED to point out this fact to everyone. I can't get xcited about a single downloadable game, even one I think looks cool such as this one. The reason?

When you buy a downloadable title, you do not own it. You are renting it. How long you are renting it can vary, but most likely until you need to change your handheld systems internal battery, which will erase all of the memory. Unlike older systems like Game Boy or Game Gear, which used regular disposable batteries which essentially gave the systems infinite power & memory lifetimes, new systems rely on internal batteries that are only gonna last you a few, maybe 10 years at most.

The PROBLEM, is that in 10 years, once you replace the battery and erase all the games on the internal memory of your 3DS, the eShop probably won't exist anymore. Or it may exist, but some or most of the games have been removed from it for licensing reasons.

You can already see this happening with the Nintendo Wii, even though it is only about 6 1/2 years old and still on the market. Several things are being erased from the Virtual Console and online services like several Sonic the Hedgehog titles, the Wii Channels, and DLC for Rock Band. What that means is, if you once owned these things and accidentally deleted em or had your memory erased, you can NEVER get em back again.

What's the moral of this story? We need to start protesting digital games and get back to retail games. Or else gaming's past won't exist in the future. So start petitions or e-mail developers. The power is yours!

I'm guessin the current tally is in SOR's favor somewhere around millions to 10. Anyway, Streets of Rage & Power Rangers are both IPs dedicated to relentlessly beating on people. I'm glad our world has become so sissified. The only way I'd find deleting my previous post acceptable is if Orla decided upon it.

shinobi88 commented on Power Rangers Megaforce Fighting Its Way Onto 3DS:

Whenever I hear "side-scrolling action game" I get a little bit excited. Why? Because I grew up during the 16-bit Genesis/SNES days when the best devs in the world were building amazing side-scrolling action games like Revenge of Shinobi, Vectorman, and Turtles in Time.

BUT, and this is a 'but' the size of Queen Latifah's, I am xtremely hesitant to get excited about ANY side-scroller these day. Why? Because developers have decided to KILL the excitment of these games by making em so easy a baby could handle it. You see this problem over and over, especially with WayForward's retail games, a problem that kills great potential side-scrolling action licenses like Batman Brave & Bold, Thor, and Hotel Transylvania.

There's always the chance this game somehow overcomes a flaw that has plagued the DS family for its entire existence. And MAYBE it could even match the xcellent Mighty Morphin Power Rangers game from the Sega Genesis, which you can read up on here: http://www.sega-16.com/2005/04/genre-spotlight-beat-em-up-bonanza/

shinobi88 commented on Batman: Arkham Origins Confirmed for Wii U:

FINALLY getting that Batman game for 3DS that was announced at E3 2010. No proof that this is the same game, but I'll take it.

If you asked this Shinobi what licensed games he'd want, if he could pick ANY two in the entire universe, #1 would be Ninja Turtles. And I was seriously pissed about that new Turtles game not coming to 3DS or Vita. But Numero DOS on that list would be Batman. So I am geeked out to an extreme level.

I've been in the handheld game since the very beginning with the original GB. There's just somethin about being able to play Tetris while I'm training my body to be a weapon. But in my estimation, there has NEVER been a great Batman game on a handheld. There's been a couple "not bad-ers", but nothin great. And Armature Studio doesn't make anything but great games. Pretty much all they've ever made is Metroid Prime and Metal Gear HD for Vita, both of which wowed critics across the board

EXTRA good news to come out recently, is that for LEGO Marvel 3DS & Vita, they're not gonna do a clone of their other sucky handheld LEGO games. They'e pumping some fresh ideas into this one they can't wait to show off...at E3 in a couple months I'm guessin

shinobi88 commented on Interview: Michael Pachter On Wii U, 3DS And T...:

None of my posts have been to contradict what Pachter says in this article about the Wii U. I didn't even read much of what he said in the article. The only point of my two previous posts was to point out how much of a fake, pathetic loser he is.

Anyone with brain cells can see that the Wii U is not a prime candidate to become a mega seller. The truth of the matter is that Nintendo SHOULD'VE been dead in the console business years ago. They were playin with SERIOUS fire when they built the Wii with graphics tech that was a generation behind and almost no online capabilities. But the Wii just happened to have the coolest, most revolutionary gimmick EVER (that's no exaggeration). I knew some seriously hip college age and above cats who weren't really into gaming anymore but they all had a Wii to play at parties.

Ninty took the same gamble with the WIi U, using current gen graphics tech when the next generation of graphics was well known to be less than 2 years away and their online still not the cream of the crop. But they were bankin on that gamepad gimmick being just as cool, and revolutionary as the Wii Motion controller & 'chuck were. But it ain't. Not even close. And worse, PS3 and Xbox 360 can already do pretty much the same gimmick, albeit not quite as well as Wii U.

It's gonna take a miracle for the Wii U to start catchin sales fire like the Wii once did. Like a price drop down all the way down to $200 kinda miracle. The facts, and these facts are plain as day, is that if the other consoles can do everything you can do and more, they can do it with much better graphics, and they can do it with a competitive price, you're in a world of trouble. It's a situation not even a portly Italian plumber, sword wieldin elf, and babealicious bounty hunter together can fix. MAYBE, and this is just a maybe, Captain N: The Game Master has the kinda power Ninty needs...

I don't speak ill of people unless they really deserve it so let me clarify. Pathetic Pachter is a fraud. A charlatan. His whole deception is based around taking things that aren't 150% guaranteed to succeed and poking holes in their weakness (which every system before and in the future will have MANY). So he is taking absolutely NO risk with his predictions. The hilarious thing, if you're smart enough to realize it is, even though he cheats like this, he still is almost always wrong. He might have been relevant sometime in 80s.

Anybody, and I mean ANYbody, could do what he does. Look how simplistic his comment above is: "a small installed base means less third party support, and the installed base can’t grow without third party support". That is his major "find". I've known chimpanzees who've dug deeper into industry trends than that

The ONLY kind of game that excites me are boxed releases. 1. They are highly collectible. B. Digital releases aren't real. Once they get erased from your system's memory, they're as good as permanently gone unless some future device recreates em, which isn't especially likely for 90% of games.

Tanagrams ain't really my thing. But I really like the art style so I think I'll be getting this game and its cool box art
