SigourneyBeaver commented on New Project CARS Screenshots Race Into View:

Nintendo systems hardly ever have proper realistic racing games and I seriously doubt this will be released. And if it does, what the hell are they going to do with the digital triggers?

Why oh why didn't Nintendo use analogue triggers? They did it with the Gamecube controller and the classic controller.

From that list only I chose Eternal Darkness because the other games wouldn't benefit as much from the graphical upgrade. The others would still be great games if they had N64 graphics, but Eternal Darkness would benefit greatly from improved lighting and more realistic models.



SigourneyBeaver commented on Mario Kart 8 Drifting In For a May Release:

I honestly thought it would be sooner than that. This is pathetic. In fact, that's the correct word for Nintendo at the moment according to the Oxford dictionary.

1 • Arousing pity, especially through vulnerability or sadness
2 • informal miserably inadequate

For me, the big fail was branding the console a Wii and making it look like a Wii. Sure, make it compatible with Wii games and controllers, but have the system itself look different so that it is separate from the Wii. I remember watching the reveal and feeling disappointed that it wasn't something totally new. With the controller having a built in screen the Wii U should have had a much more hi-tech image.

So if Iwata wants to rebuild Nintendo I think he should get his head down and put out the usual suspects like Mario Kart, Zelda and Smash Bros and ride out the Wii U for 3 more years. Then we need a new console with some BRAND NEW games we've never seen before.

@Mary_Yati I agree. And that's not because of some kind of blind fanboyism. But just an opinion that has formed after seeing things develop. See, PS4 and Xbone release close together and very similarly specced, making multiplatform games easier for third parties to do. So maybe third parties tried to push for Nintendo to do this and failed, so they've not supported the system. A bit spiteful.

@Laxeybobby I wonder if they could merge the home and handheld somehow. If you take a tablet, all it needs is a docking station, an HDMI out and a wireless controller. The graphics are very good even with Tegra 3 which is a bit old now. Something newer will look much better.

So Nintendo could make a tablet that docks for home play and maybe clips into a shell that provides physical controls for handheld play, and can be taken out of that and used as a regular tablet as well.
