Squiggle55 commented on Core Console Market Bigger Than Ever, Despite ...:

"Nintendo was instrumental in creating the new casual gaming market, and therefore suffered the most when casual players abandoned consoles and switched to smart devices."

That makes a lot of sense. Hopefully Nintendo gets the message and simply tries to make the best machine like the NES and SNES

Beat everyone at the game that's being played. Don't make up your own game. Don't invent some new storage device for the games. Don't think of a new gimmick. Don't think of a new pun for its name. Powerful, blu ray player, good online infrastructure, 3rd party friendly, achievement system with Nintendo flare. Give us the exact equivalent of the PS4 and add Nintendo games to it = big win. For nostalgia sake I recommend calling it the Super Nintendo 2 and lead the PR with Reggie admitting Nintendo's mistakes and warning everyone that Nintendo is back.

Squiggle55 commented on Poll: We Want Your Views on Splatoon Version 2.0:

give me the ability to play with 2 people online on the same console. I don't care that player 2 couldn't launch to teammates. If that's really such a big deal for them make launching some sort of button combination on the controller.

This is comparable to Hollywood putting out a good new rated R action movie starring attractive actresses and a sex scene mostly unrelated to the plot. And then interviewing the director. And then putting it in front of children and asking them to give their opinion of the movie without having seen it.

But I wish all of the children were more critical and scared of the violence in Call of Duty than the fanservice in this game.

I really can't believe this is what they decided to call Metroid. The fans want Metroid, and there are tons of developers out there who would love to make a classic 2D metroid, and I don't understand why Nintendo isn't one of them.

I agree with Spoony_Tech completely. I bought the game on sale, but it's not because I didn't think it was worth the full price. It's a great indie game. I like Renegade Kid's games. I just have so many games I don't need to be going around paying full price for everything. But if something good goes on sale I snatch it up for later tricking myself into thinking that I'm being thrifty.

Squiggle55 commented on Nintendo Isn't Talking About NX Because It Doe...:

I would love for the NX to work with my New 3DS somehow. But I would love even more to have a traditional home console with zero gimmicks or special selling points other than being easy to port to, lots of power, and Nintendo software.

Squiggle55 commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

I actually have a really good feeling that they finally understand. Just make it easy for 3rd parties. Don't give them an extra peripheral with added cost of porting. Make it a simple, cheap, clean porting process for 3rd parties, add a 21st century online infrastructure for achievements and social interaction, and Nintendo will win by a landslide supported by the best software in the business.

I also know absolutely nothing about coding but find it surprising that this game wouldn't fit on 3DS compared to some of the seemingly massive and deep retail games.

On the other hand I love exclusives for my new hardware!

Man Iwata faked me out big time with this announcement. I was absolutely confident as they were going through the old clips of Mario Kart that they were going to say "battle mode" and we were going to get a real battle mode announcement.

I actually like games like this. I never spend any money on them. And, in fact, it's built in such a way that without limiting the gameplay to 20 minute bursts it would actually probably lose its appeal much quicker. So the hearts don't bother me.

Nintendo needs their version of skylanders or disney infinity to really get things going and show things off. And I bet they're working on it. The figures themselves are more intriguing to me than any gameplay value, which I'm not sure is what they want ideally. I also really wish they would build figures that remember multiple game data.

Squiggle55 commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

I wish someone would tell them they don't need new ideas. They just need to copy the online infrastructure of Sony and Microsoft and then keep doing what they do making great software. Feed the masses with their desire to have an online account to be proud of and show off their accomplishments coupled with nintendo software and they will be number one.

And please please please kill the Wii brand and go back to basic, sane naming strategies.

Squiggle55 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

@DefHalan The problem with your argument is that it's simply not done on the eshop. There is no early access program for Nintendo. No matter which way you spin it, if the developers intention was to release an incomplete game, which you claim, then people are being tricked, because it simply isn't done on the eshop. No matter how vocal you think the dev is being, anything short of saying in the description on the eshop "Warning: My intention is to release an incomplete game ala early access programs" is not vocal enough. Of course he doesn't say this because it isn't done on Nintendo. How you feel about early access is irrelevant.

@DefHalan Your defense of The Letter is that it is unfinished. That would be a great defense if someone broke into his house, stole the files off his computer, played what he had, and wrote a review. Do you seriously not see a problem with what he did? You admit yourself nobody else has tried this on a console before. Did you ever wonder if there was a reason for that?

Squiggle55 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I am torn. I am not overwhelmingly disappointed. But I'm also not as happy as I could be. I think I like getting Game & Wario better than the soundtrack last year, and the pins the year before that. But what I really want is something nice like the statue from the year before. But if they were just going to give us something lame like the last 2 years then I prefer the retail game. But I would also prefer more retail games to choose from. They know full well that people earn these points by buying a lot of games, so they need to provide a lot more retail choices.

Squiggle55 commented on Vblank Entertainment Provides Sales Threshold ...:

How does the sales threshold work? After it hits the threshold he gets a big hunk of cash for all the games that have been sold already, getting back all of his investment at once? That is an insane policy. I'm sure someone has mentioned it already, but he should have made the fans put their money where there mouth is first if they were ragging on him for potentially not releasing on wiiware. Make a Kickstarter page and have them prebuy a wiiware copy with a 20k goal.

I'll be interested to hear if they use the gamepad in any way other than offscreen play. If not I'll once again choose Playstation for the simple fact that they have trophies and everything else is equal. But I am SUPER excited about a sequel to this game. One of my real highlights of last generation personally.

I love chess and this classic game is absolutely screaming to give it the proper live multiplayer on consoles it deserves. What is the deal, voofoo?

Squiggle55 commented on Review: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

Come on! I really had my hopes up that they would improve the multiplayer from the Sony versions. I WANTED to buy this on the Wii U. But, come on! What is the deal? This has to be the absolute simplest type of game to have multiplayer for.

Squiggle55 commented on Industry Veteran Peter Molyneux Warns The Indi...:

Indie games are here to stay. Technology has given them the opportunity to be a part of the marketplace. They are more affordable and typically more original. There is no logical reason to think they're going anywhere unless he thinks big publishers are going to lower their prices significantly and take more creative chances.
