thanos316 commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

SMH. This is what's wrong with the gaming industry. Hey Nintendo why are you making women cover up in the western version. Is it because you think they will be backlash, or that the outfits on these female characters have been wrong in the first place. I for one do not want tits and ass showing in my games. Its the context of which it is shown. Who in their right mind would run around in a bra and underwear in a fight. This same thing happens in other entertainment. Its sexist all around.



thanos316 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Strategy Needs to be Glo...:

I've been saying the same thing for years. Nintendo has some great IP's but they only push a selected few. People have been calling for a new metroid for years, not some watered down four player themed metroid game they just showed at E3. Thats why I am good with my PC



thanos316 commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

No. Nintendo has given up a golden chance to make the wii u a success. They should have pushed $$$ behind it but they failed to capitalize on the wii success. I understand that they use the Apple model but they got to shift away from that. Too many players in the game now, with PC gaming making a big push. PC gaming have no handcuffs and different games comes out for it weekly. Nintendo got to broaden its spectrum and then again it will be successful



thanos316 commented on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Developers Talk ...:

disappointing to hear. what happened to the more open embracing nintendo. There is this thing called steam where all games are welcomed. nintendo is just losing money stopping games from releasing on its system. shame it took so long for this game to be approved



thanos316 commented on Nintendo Executive Discusses the eShop, Indies...:

Nintendo needs to keep good relationships with indie developers. Nintendo in the past have been very crappy with their relationships with other devs. Nintendo can't be all talk and no show because too many players are in the arena, such as PC, Sony, Microsoft, Nvidia, and many others.



thanos316 commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS eShop Games That Ar...:

Gunman Clive for the 3ds is a must have. Its not a very difficult game, you have to use your brain a little. Its a fun game overall, the music is good and not annoying. this game still has me smiling, as i have not finished it yet. The art style is great also. Im very satisfied about the creativity in this game.



thanos316 commented on Download Sales On Nintendo Formats Have Treble...:

well if digital copies are the future then i guess thats okay. i just don't want to pay for the same game over and over. They have to be a way to transfer games you pay for from system to system. steam is already big on pc, and you really can't find physical copies of pc games.



thanos316 commented on Western Markets Vital For Nintendo Hardware Sa...:

ninty needs a killer app right now for the wii u. they have zelda, metroid, mario, f zero, smash bros, pokemon. they are just taking too long with their games. take the reins off. lets get something hard hitting, something dark. the 90's aren't here anymore and your fan base has gotten older. they have millions of people out there that would love to see something new and fresh from ninty.



thanos316 commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

The question is right now is why do i need a wii u. I know some of you are gonna say for this and that game. But really nintendo is pushing nintendo right now, and maybe a few other non nintendo titles. Its just taking too long for a killer wii u app to come out. Nintendo does need third party support, it also needs good publicity. The name "Wii" needs to go. Hyrule warriors won't save nothing, i know your not serious about that comment. I love nintendo but they need to come out swinging. the best thing that nintendo is doing right now is the work with indie devs. because that relationship will pay dividends in the future. I don't own a ps4 or xbox one, im rocking with the 3ds and pc right now. the consumer is much smarter now. it starts with smart marketing and nintendo has brand recognition. they just need to deliver a home console without all the restraints.



thanos316 commented on Nintendo Completes Share Buyback, Including So...:

Now this is a smart move by nintendo. buying back your own stock for little money than you may have sold it for at first. then in 6 months are so they could sell it at a higher price. or control their own destiny more. very smart move. now nintendo just start investing in some r&d...



thanos316 commented on Satoru Iwata States That Nintendo Should "Aban...:

nintendo was behind the curve on the cartride vs disc. then it went its own way with the wii. some things are hit and miss. before the wii came out nintendo had a code name of "revolution" and if they would have named the wii u the revolution then i think things would be a little better. nintendo has to listen to devs also and work with devs. the 3ds has a lot of dev support. nintendo can still help the wii u go big. the wii u isn't dead at all, it just needs a boost in software. the pad isn't a weakness, its the wii u's biggest strength..



thanos316 commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:

am i the only person that dont want remakes..they are a lot of good games on this list but none i want to play again. nintendo is sitting on some gold mines and don't want to let them out. if they bring out a new metroid it would be amazing. i think it would rival halo, or gears of war.. correct me if im wrong.



thanos316 commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:

metroid. new zelda, and not a remake. xenoblades 2. a new super mario galaxy. i guess it takes the stock or share holders to lose money for nintendo to try something different. nintendo users has been asking for new games. nintendo users been asking for big games early in the life cycle. nintendo users been asking for gamecube back ward compatability right out the box. i guesss it takes some bad news for nintendo to change a lil. im not asking for a big change, just listen to your base and you can tell a lot.



thanos316 commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata "Has Earned Th...:

The wii u hasn't failed, its only year two. one hit and this system will be pushing out units. more marketing, more indie titles, and more word of mouth. Its always doom and gloom for nintendo. not everyone hits a homerun everytime up at bat. give the wii u some time.



thanos316 commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

this is year two for the wii u. but its not dead yet. year one was ruff and i blame that on nintendo. better marketing would have been good. better name to separate it from the wii. i don't believe that people mistake it as just an add on to the wii, but you have to differentiate it a bit. the game pad is good i bet. big titles takes time to come out. they should have put that wii money into r&d. but like i said they have indie devs on their side, and they just need that one hit to get the wii u name out there. A $5 game can go a long way as we have seen in this time. 2 months ago it was the ps4 and xbone. now its the steam machines. the wii u name has to get out there, and get people talking. big games yes will help and more advertising. so iwata shouldn't step down.. not at all



thanos316 commented on Capcom Claims Its New Panta Rhei Game Engine C...:

good to hear that this engine could be adapted to any system. but does that mean that capcom has a game in development for the wii u. this is wii u 2nd year on the market. lets hope it picks up some steam in usa. this news doesn't make me exited. i want to hear definite titles thats in development now or coming out soon for the wii u. the 3ds is doing fine so thats all good.



thanos316 commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

this isn't five years ago. nintendo knew that they had to come out with something much better than the wii was at the time. this is something that they are a little nieve about. what sold today won't necessarily sell tomorrow. i love the wii but im not sold on the wii u. the best controller ive ever played with is the wii mote and nunchuck. nintendo for the wii u needed to add more power for devs and still be creative. they got one part right but not the power part. im sure the wii u kicks out some good graphics but some devs wants the power to do anything..



thanos316 commented on Nintendo Dominates Festive Hardware Charts in ...:

Japan is the place where the ds got a good run going and never looked back. if the wii u can pick up steam in japan and then create a good run over here in north america then the wii u will be in good shape. people are very hard on nintendo but if your hardware is selling no matter where then its a good thing. lets hope the wii u can get that same success here in the u.s.



thanos316 commented on The Financial Post Thinks Wii U And 3DS Could ...:

So people buy Nintendo systems to play Nintendo games. Well that may be half right. But right now they aren't much of those. Nintendo needs a killer app and it needs games.. the 3ds has games and the wii u needs it now. All I see on tv is just dance ads. Where are the mario ads. The ads with other 3rd party games that says buy me. Show me a call of duty ghost add with the wii u gamepad the focus and then have wii u show alongside it at the end. Now that is good marketing. . Sony got it right this time around. Sony has a good marketing push. Good feedback from devs. And they have games.



thanos316 commented on Poll: Nintendo and the Wii U Fight For Your At...:

the consoles are now going head to head. these coming weeks will tell a lot. but this console generation seems different. maybe im defferent with my purchases and thinking.. but the pc is looking very good right now for a gaming device.



thanos316 commented on Nintendo Launches New Wii U Christmas Advertis...:

cheesy.. thats what comes to mind when i see that picture. or when i seen that ad of super mario game. and when i see the ps4 and xbox one ads i see over the top action. idk which marketing strategy will win but we shall find out soon.



thanos316 commented on Nintendo Shares Hit Three-Month High Ahead of ...:

this is just the share holders talking right now. things can obviously change in a heart beat. shares also went up when word got out that nintendo might be making an android tablet. but its all about actual sales and money.. perception can help you for so long. show a real profit and everything is good.



thanos316 commented on Soapbox: Super Mario 3D World's Playful Whimsy...:

I like how you mention PC rigs. But a desktop pc is known for web browsing and office documents more than for playing games. gaming pc's are intimidating i thing. too much talk about power and max graphics the ordinary person knows nothing about. the steam machine is in the right place. Its all about marketing. gotta get critics and people talking.the ps4 has momentum behind them right now. and then next it will be the xbox one. so mario will push up the hardware for the wii u. but it will take more to see how long success last for each system..



thanos316 commented on Happy Birthday, Wii U - You're One Today:

happy birthday.. but i hope year two is better than the first. well wii u needs more push and hopefully more games. i see the lineup on gamestop and its slim to me. hope it gets better in the spring



thanos316 commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

Its all about power. innovation. games. experience. advertising. good promotion. the wii u is suffering i think because of lack of games, advertising and not enough power for some devs... the wii u still has a chance. the smaller games and the game pad.. just one killer app can change the tide to wii u favor. lets just wait and see. i see the push for the 3ds but the wii u needs a great push. stop the waiting and talk. its time for action. and its long over due



thanos316 commented on Feature: Why Nintendo Isn't Popular in Poland:

who cares if it isnt popular in poland. i just beat xenoblades.. yes finally. i know its been out for a while. but ive been without my wii for 9 months. i put many hours into that game. Xenoblades is one of the best games ive ever played..



thanos316 commented on Nintendo Releases Handy Wii U Comparison Chart:

advertising is what nintendo needed to do. and then in the video game world you need good word of mouth. if your friend says hey this thing is great then you will more than likely give it a go. if a reviewer gives it positive feed back then your like okay yea imma check it out. then you gotta have games, games and games. you have to keep pushing the system. i mean nintendo has a lot of people saying the wii u is great and this and that, but where are the tv ads. when i see a video game ad for a game, i then see ps4 across the screen. ninty needs to get its name attached to a big name video game. spend some money in advertising and you will see a difference



thanos316 commented on Poll: Is Nintendo's Wii U Advertising and Mark...:

nintendo wii u needs marketing on tv. ive seen xbox one and ps4 ads. it also hurts nintendo when most of the big games are being delayed. xbox one and ps4 are coming out in the near future and the steam box is coming out early next year. so nintendo need some hard hitting games. mario games are all good but they need some big titles. star fox, zelda. im glad they are helping indie devs, cause that can help in a good relationship for bigger future games. ninty need to do a lot more. have an advertisement where its call of duty ghosts showing off the wii u actual gameplay , the game pad, and then at the end have nintendo's name plastered all over the screen..



thanos316 commented on Aonuma: Information About Majora's Mask Can Be...:

A remake is all fine and good. But didn't we see a teaser of an hd link yrs ago. I want something new and epic in this series. . The Nintendo fans will buy a remake but it won't pull people in from other consoles. Ninty needs that killer app that brings in new players.
