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.

While I don't necessarily agree with Miyamoto on a number of matters in creating games, he can create a great game with his philosophies. I can see why people might have a problem with his projects, but they're going to continue to evolve. Anyone here think that Super Mario 128 would have made a good game? Probably not, but the concepts it presented evolved into two awesome games, Pikmin and Super Mario Galaxy.

@FragRed: Possibly. The game industry is going to change within the next number of years regardless though. I can't say how things will play out, and concerns are justified, but a crash would have to come eventually. There's always a breaking point, and it usually is reached at some point. Nintendo is responsible for much of how the console market developed after the chaos that lead to the North American market crash. The mobile market is similar in some regards, except that consumer's are hardly charged much of anything up front. Who knows, there's nothing completely like it to compare it to.

The elitist comments on here...

Facts:

Portable gaming got it's start with the same kinds of basic time wasters as mobile gaming. (Game & Watch)

Tetris (yet another basic, time waster with no depth) was a major selling point for the Gameboy.

I'm not defending some corrupt practices in the mobile market, nor am I saying that the shovelware isn't that, but we do need to acknowledge that mobile gaming is indeed gaming. It's in its fledgling state and has a lot more maturing to do. Do you expect babies to be born with the same reasoning and understanding of a full grown adult?

SomeBitTripFan commented on Best Buy's 'Smash-Fest' Venues, Perks and Demo...:

...You can't even put a demo unit in every state, Nintendo? There is no way I'm begging anyone to drive me an hour and twenty minutes to the closest Best Buy that will have a demo... Just put a basic demo on the eshop so everyone can enjoy the game on their couch with some friends, as you all seem to emphasize in those commercials... Talk about flipping a bird at your consumers... grumble grumble

Seriously, all DF is doing is pointing out some flaws. They could say the game was 1080p and 60 FPS (to which a number of you would now be praising them), but they're giving an honest report. If you're really trying to argue that the Wii U is a powerhouse, then just enjoy your own delusion and leave the sensible people to enjoy their games.

Eh, the trailer put me off and I'm not going to be the guy to buy a game just because it has Zelda on the box. Unless they show something to change my mind personally (As of right now, the game just looks like a flashy slaughterfest of enemies who just stare at you.) I'll pass.

I still don't like day one DLC, but at the price point, it's still far more excusable than the paid DLC of Fire Emblem: Awakening. If they keep their DLC policies similar to this, I'll still feel fine supporting it, but not if they take the Awakening route again.

...Need to buy this confirmed...

I've had my eye on this game since I saw that battle system (Grandia II is one of my favorite games of all time) and this game is the exact thing that needs to be supported. This was a risky venture by Ubisoft, and I think they should be rewarded for it.

@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.
