The Bit Trippin' Retro/JRPG Guy

Male, 15, United States

Nintendolife's nutty and jocular, yet fairly cynical theologian. An joker with an obsession with JRPGs, although a fan of many other genres of games. He's the all-in-one worker at Backway Games, but nothing has ever come out their doors.

@BossBattles: I know you strongly believe in your opinion on global warming, but trying to force your opinion down other peoples throats isn't going to make them believe you. You're coming off as a tin-foil hat wearing warrior. Don't believe what one person says just because they are discrediting another. What if your sources are being tipped off by a wealthy oil company so it can make money? Do research for yourself, not on what others say, and come to your own conclusions.

Preserving someones game design philosophy is always a good thing, but I don't necessarily support choosing to make the people coming in Miyamoto clones. I'd rather see someone new come in with new ideas on game design than someone new come in just to preserve the old.

Is this going to be Nintendo's new strategy? They should have already learned that the Blue Ocean is only a temporary solution. Why didn't the slew of "gamers" they brought in with the Wii move to the Wii U? Stop creating markets and letting others take them over; You have to use brute force if you want to keep a market.

Ugh... that Super Inhale ability or whatever looks terrible. I don't want to be forced to hold a button to watch a cutscene, or engage in the activity of solving obvious puzzles by pushing blocks in 2D. The rhythm game and new power-ups look fine, but Super Inhale...

@grimbldoo: Your soup metaphor is flawed. Sakurai and his team can't sit back and let the game make itself. Man hours are the only thing that bring this game closer to being complete. Assembly lines are a faster method than a single person making a whole product, this isn't any different in prospect.

I have to agree with this guy. Smartglass is far too cumbersome to be used or practical gaming, but the Wii U hasn't really justified the existence of the Gamepad yet either. I definitely think the Gampad is one of the smarter approaches to second screen gaming, but so far, not game has made the second screen and integral part of the gameplay. If anything the Gamepad has only been treated as a single, more flexible screen.

There would be advantages to Nintendo publishing on other consoles, but there would also be problems resulting from it. The one flaw with all of this is the assumption that Nintendo will, from this point onward, make weaker systems. We'll have to see how the Wii U follows course, and if it doesn't cut it, Nintendo will need to reexamine their strategy.

@everyone: This guy became president when THQ was already sinking, he did a good job of laying them to rest, not killing them.
