the_beaver commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Do You Most Wa...:

Let's remember this is the NX "launch line-up", guys... A console that will be released this year, or the next one at the latest. We're not talking about which games do you most want to see from Nintendo in the next years. It's not about the popularity of the franchises. It's pointless to say that you want another Starfox or Xenoblade, when they are so recent...
It should be something that will attract people. Something like Zelda, Mario, Pokemon, or a new and cool IP like Wii Sports or Splatoon. Or even a Metroid like Prime, to show that it's not a "just for kids" thing, and how powerful the machine is.



the_beaver commented on Super Mario Maker Joins Elite List of Wii U Ga...:

That´s a great list indeed. I´d add titles like Bayonetta 2 or Xenoblade X, but they are more niche games, I´m afraid they will never become part of that list... DK:TF is surprisingly selling in a modest way compared to its prequel, I wonder why. Maybe the people didn´t expect another 2D DK so soon (and so similiar), or something...



the_beaver commented on Garchomp, Braixen and Mewtwo Will Join the Fig...:

Glad to see the roster is getting bigger! Don't know much about pokemons, but I'm kind of interested in this game, since it looks so fun!
It seems many more characters will be revealed until this game gets released in may or so, not to mention the secret characters. I have faith in this one, I think is gonna be awesome.



the_beaver commented on Wii U and 3DS Hardware Sales Lead the Way in J...:

Good to see this in the last period of the year
WiiU definitely deserves more love, but I don't understand why Xeno X didn't sell much in that country... Totally unexpected.
Anyway, it's absolutely crazy how much they love Monster Hunter and Yo-kai Watch over there.



the_beaver commented on Evergreen Nintendo Releases Hang Tough in the ...:

I'm not from the UK, but from what I've seen, the Nintendo games are not very popular in that country for any reason, so I'm not surprised at all... Let's see how the game behaves in the rest of the world, I hope it does well, it certainly deserves it. I've played "only" 60 hours, but so far I consider it already one of the best games I've ever played. It's absolutely outstanding in every sense.



the_beaver commented on Feature: A Glimpse Behind the Scenes of FAST R...:

Nintendo should definilety hire this people, as a second, like Monolith. Give them enough freedom, finance their projects. and make them better (with the Nintendo touch).
They know how to manage the machines they are working with. At least technically they are awesome. They could even create new engines or something.



the_beaver commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Third...:

Definitely my favorites are Super Smash Bros. (probably the best), Mario 3D World, Mario Kart 8, Splatoon and Super Mario Maker, but I haven´t played many yet, like Bayonetta 2, Yoshi or Captain Toad. Hyrule Warriors, Pikmin 3 and DK:TF are fantastic games too.



the_beaver commented on Talking Point: Super Mario Maker's Update Cont...:

@simonthomas6 You actually have 2 checkpoints per level, one per "dimension", which makes a lot of sense, since the largest levels are the ones that use 2 floors, with a lot of things happening in both places.

I like the update, but it was one just solving some initial problems. Now I want some kind of DLC adding REAL content, like more items, scenery, enemies, and even a pack of maps (sooooo good it would be the possibility to actually create your own game). I wouldn´t mind to pay for it if the amount of new content is worthy.



the_beaver commented on Rumour: Dataminers Dig Up eShop Listings For S...:

Well, I'm one of those that loved Other M as well XD, despite the story being a bit... stupid sometimes. The gameplay was awesome, I enjoyed a lot, but I prefer the Prime trilogy anyway (well, not the second one... I hated the second one)
If the Twilight Princess HD is real, I hope it comes out RIGHT NOW! On time to give some boost to the WiiU this christmas, and make the wait for the new Zelda easier. Don't announce it for the next year, as it could mean a new delay for the new one...



the_beaver commented on FAST Racing NEO Developer Shin’en Multimedia...:

I'll wait for the reviews just in case, but everything on this game looks so good... They are going to sell well, I'm pretty sure of that. But anyway, I'd like Nintendo to get this company so they could release their games in physical copies too. It's always better to sell, I'm my opinion it's a mistake that this awesome game is going to be only available in the e-shop... I'd like to have it in my shelf.



the_beaver commented on Masahiro Sakurai Reportedly Promises That Mewt...:

Nintendo NX?? Forget about it until the next year.
But I agree. Nintendo needs urgently a Direct soon! I would add news of the second DLC of Mario Kart 8, too.
Next week would be perfect.

Ah, and Devil's Third as well. Don't forget about it!



the_beaver commented on Wii U Art Of Balance Release Date Confirmed Fo...:

Hahaha it´s true @unrandomsam, I though the difference between pounds and euros was smaller... I didn´t mean I thought the game was expensive, don´t get me wrong! I was just confused with currency issues... Less than 10 euros for a game like this sounds interesting, but this is not really my style. I´ll probably give it a try eventually though, if it finishes being great.



the_beaver commented on Retro Studios Ramps Up Recruitment for a Varie...:

A new Metroid would be great! But a new IP would be even more tentative!
They should be doing two titles at a time. One for the next year, and another one fot the 2017, before the generation ends...
Whatever happens, a new Metroid should be released as soon as possible!



the_beaver commented on Devil's Third Developer Discusses Its Unique A...:

I bet this game won't be released until the second half of the next year (not to compete with Splatoon). So they will have plenty of time to polish it.
It's not my kind of game definitely, but if it finish turning out good, I may consider getting it, depending on which other titles are being released in the same period of time.



the_beaver commented on Sony Overtakes Nintendo In Global Hardware Sal...:

That's good. Nintendo needs some pressure to do things better. And faster.
With the WiiU they are taking too long to deliver the hits. Mario Kart should have arrived much sooner, and the new Zelda should be released this end of the year. Hyrule Warriors, X and Bayonetta will be very good games for sure, but they are not going to sell hardware...



the_beaver commented on Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 13...:

I think they will show X and a release date in the japanese direct, as it will probably be released this spring in those lands (hopefully, that'd mean we would get it by the end of the year), as well as Sonic Boom will be shown in the rest, with its release date for this spring.
And well, apart from DK and MK, I think they should try to get released Bayonetta 2 (as well as its first part) between those games, to fill in the space. And also, being optimistic, I believe Smash Bros will be shown, meaning an earlier release date than expected (probably by June??). They should at least, otherwise they will be giving info and pics about the game for more than a whole year... We will know it all by the time it's out lol. And of course the rest of games from Wii Sports Club, and the physical copies of it and Wii Fit U.
I'd like to see something new, but with all the games announced, I think it's quite unlikely until the E3...



the_beaver commented on Sonic Lost World Sales Reached 640,000 in 2013:

@alwaysasn, just saying, but you know, seeing that a game has got a 63 in Metacritic doesn't encourage one to spend such amount of money... Specially when there are some platform gems around (Mario and Rayman, 93 and 92, respectively), and another one on the way. But well, you are right, I'll give it a try someday, when it gets cheaper, and judge it by myself.



the_beaver commented on Sonic Lost World Sales Reached 640,000 in 2013:

I was interested in this till I read all the reviews. I'm surprised so many people actually bought it.
It may be a third party game, even an exclusive, but we are not stupid enough as to buy crap. As simple as that. They have to try harder if they want us in - It's just my opinion, I love ZombiU, for example; TW101 doesn't appeal to me, not big fan of action games, I'd much prefer another Little King Story.



the_beaver commented on Exclusive: Shin'en Multimedia Bringing Art of ...:

I'll probably give it a shot, as I've never played any other version before. Don't know if this is my type of game, though.
Anyway, I'm really exited about the racing game they are developing. Hope they will show us some footage soon, now this other project has been announced!



the_beaver commented on Video: The 10 Biggest Wii U Games Of 2014:

Good year indeed. I'm glad to see so much love for X! A second position (even ahead of Mario Kart) is a good sign. I hope it will sell very well!
I wonder what new surprises we will see through this year. I see it well the way it is, but another blast at the end of the year (perhaps a new Zelda or Metroid?) would be so cool!



the_beaver commented on Mass Market Price And Mario Kart 8 Will Revers...:

I cannot wait for the next Nintendo Direct! I bet they will show everything they have in development so they can gain people's interests. Also a launch date for Mario Kart 8 is a must (my bet is between mid March and mid April).
A price cut to 199 pounds/euros/dollars would be nice too, though



the_beaver commented on Creative Racer, Velocity Stream, Could Be Spee...:

Wow, looks like a good idea! I'll have to follow this one to see how it ends. Let's hope it will eventually be released on WiiU, I think it could be a cool idea to use the gamepad creating the race while seeing how four of your friends are competing each other.
Although I don't know if it should fit better being like an alternative game mode or something... Otherwise every time you play you will need a partner to play with, won't you??



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

I don't want him to resign! Not yet, that the games are finally starting to come. I like Iwata being the CEO of the company. But there are still many things that must be done in order to achieve what he aims to. Like, for instance, advertising the console (yeah, that could serve), or improving the online infrastructure. Or, say, stop delaying the games so often...
But I like the WiiU. I see a bright future ahead, if the things are done correctly.
With that said, if the situation in 1 year time is as dark as it is now, then we could start considering other possibilities...



the_beaver commented on Nintendo Confirms Major Reductions In Sales an...:

I still wonder... What the hell are they waiting for to release physically those supposed to be best-selling: Wii Fit U and Wii Sports Club?? As much as anyone may love the games to be virtually released, it's not until they have been physically released likely to be seen and desired for most people (specially casual gamers, these games' main target).
Start doing the things properly and stop trying so many different things Nintendo, and you will see a huge improvement in sales!



the_beaver commented on 3DS Tops US Hardware Sales as Wii U Achieves "...:

How the WiiU could be selling very well?? I mean, it's just performing well enough, but with the current library nobody should expect much better results... They have only released ONE game in the whole year that could make the charts turn round: Super Mario 3D World (they have released more good games, of course, but nothing one would be willing to buy a new console for). If they had released this last end of the year other games like Mario Kart 8 and Donkey Kong, alongside the new Mario (as many people expected them to do), things would've been way too different, I believe. But they are waiting for the next year to release nearly everything they have (don't ask me why, but they must have their reasons), so as anyone can imagine, no games, no sales.
Let's have some faith, and hope the next christmas will be much better for the WiiU (as well as it happened with the 3DS).
PD: Sorry if there's any mistake, I just woke up.. :S
