SkywardCrowbar commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

Not looking to get into any kind of debate about this, I'd just like to express me deep disappointment in WB and Rock Steady for not bringing this game to Wii U. Wii U won't have much smaller of an install base by the time this game comes out (especially after Mario Kat 8 brings in a lot of new Wii U owners) but it's just being overlooked yet again.

I don't want people yelling at me about how "it's Nintendo fans fault" or any of that. I'm just a huge Batman fan who happens to only own a Wii U, so I'm sad. :(

Devs want to have a super easy process of porting games. Nintendo hardware is unique, and is therefore very difficult to port to for lazy devs.

I'm not particularly concerned about this since there's so many nice looking projects coming to Wii U from indie devs and the 3DS has a steady stream of extremely high quality content.

It's good move because Nintendo has to go into the smartphone market in some capacity. This is a measured response to changes in the industry, and doesn't devalue any of their IP's or brands.

Marketing needs to evolve more than anything for Nintendo.

More indie games!

I feel like it's important for Wii U owners and Nintendo fans to take a step back from the worrying about financials and just appreciate how GREAT the software for Wii U is right now and how bright the future of game releases on Wii U looks.

@ JohnRedcorn: I pre-order all my games because it helps the companies and I like the pre-order bonuses. Also, in the case of Watch_Dogs, the game was supposed to come out in November. I had paid it off in October.

The reason I pay off games in advance is financial. When I have a few months to pay them off, I can plan out payments. This ensures that I can get all the games that I want.

SkywardCrowbar commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

Ubisoft treats its customers like crap with awful DRM and has now massively delayed and stripped the exclusive status of a game for Wii U in Rayman Legends, and has (if this is true, which it seems very likely it is) cancelled a game entirely for Wii U.

I'm getting real tired of their crap, and I LOVE ZombiU and I'm a fan of Rayman Legends. It's not like I just hate Ubisoft for no reason.

I'll believe Moore when EA starts developing games for Wii U.

EA has just treated Nintendo like garbage. I feel bad for buying Need For Speed Most Wanted U and Mass Effect 3: Special Edition new, even though when I bought them they were only $29.99.

SkywardCrowbar commented on Here Are Some Monstrous eShop Discounts for No...:

If Monster Hunter 3 is still only $39.99 at Gamestop, then I'll get the hard copy, if not, I'll finally get a major release on the eShop. I might pick up Bomb Monkey as well.

Also, Scribblenauts Unlimited for $19.99 is a great deal. That's an awesome game, and it's best on Wii U.

Hey, the review is finally up. I got this on launch day in North America, but I haven't played it. I am like, 10 games behind in my play schedule. :(

Anyway, glad to hear that Unmasked is a worthy follow up to Unlimited. I adored Unlimited.

SkywardCrowbar commented on BLOK DROP U Developer Shares Perspective on HT...:

The easier it is for all kinds of developers to make games for your system, the wider variety of games you'll get. This is great for Wii U owners and gamers in general. Nintendo is doing well for itself with the Web Framework stuff, and also doing well for gamers and indie devs.

A very, very good Direct. Not even so much for the quality of the announcements, but just the riskiness and freshness of the announcements. Nintendo and Wii U stuff was all over Twitter yesterday. People ate it up. I saw a fair amount of tweets from people talking about how this Direct made them want to buy a Wii U.

SkywardCrowbar commented on NPD Results Deliver a 3DS Milestone And Modest...:

Wii U was in a tailspin in sales for most of the year, it's been on the upswing since September. It's still trending up. I don't see a problem. Things don't always change over night. It's a momentum thing more than a short term sales thing.

That said, I would like to see Nintendo do some drastic things in 2014. Make a new IP (or 2), revive some old IP's, and buy a developer who can crank out more games.
