Yorumi commented on Details Uncovered of Upcoming Update for Zelda...:

@sinalefa when you get to higher difficulties the gameplay is surprisingly deep. I was a little afraid at first that the gameplay would get repetitive but this is my second most played game on the wiiU and I'm still playing(most played right now is monster hunter).

Yorumi commented on Mewtwo Club Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Distrib...:

@Ryu_Niiyama I acknowledged that in my initial post. If this was a completely new character I'd say that's pretty cool. I mean what's next ice climbers paid dlc? Hey lets get wolf as dlc and throw in pichu while we're at it. Between ice climbers actually being cut, mewtwo as paid dlc, the gc controllers only working on one game it just sort of feels like they're trying to see how much they can get away with.

Somehow specific game sets is not what I envisioned when they said they'd be making figures that work across games and showed that original picture of the mario amiibo and multiple games all pointing to it.

Yorumi commented on Mewtwo Club Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Distrib...:

This is getting dangerously close to bad dlc if it doesn't already cross the line. I know he wasn't in brawl but come on you cut a character, fans of said character are upset, so nintendo now sells said character back to us. Plus this is announced in advance of the game(one with multiple clones already) that it reeks of withheld content for dlc.

Between the gamecube adapter, cutting content for an unrelated version, and now dlc of cut fighters nintendo is getting kind of sleezy here.

@aaronsullivan we're arguing degree here, You're arguing it's a strong factor, I'm arguing it's a weak factor. It's not something that should be relied on, really at all. It's results have been wildly erratic at best. In a lot of ways it's having the reverse effect on the wiiU, depressing sales because people are sick of playing the same games they've played over and over.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

Let me just add, your point does have some degree of merit, specially with nsmb. What happened with the wii is nintendo caught a fluke, everyone bought a wii, then they saw these games they recognized from the past and bought them.

One reviewer of MK8 before launch asked the question "did everyone buy mkwii because they love mk or because they already owned a wii and recognized it." The answer was clearly the latter for both mk and nsmb. Nintendo interpreted this incorrectly as the former and they still havn't quite caught on that they were massively wrong.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@aaronsullivan well in terms of absolute sales MK8 is still selling worse than any other console MK game ever. What happened to the original 10mil MK fans you were using, let alone the 30 mil from the wii. I just think it's kind of logically contradicting, nostalgia was a large factor in getting people to buy mk and nsmb before but not now all the sudden?

Beyond that the ps4 which isn't using nostalgia is crushing the wiiU even after it's launched it's heavy hitters in nsmb and mk. Even after the trifecta is launched with smash I doubt it's going to catch the weekly sales for the ps4 which isn't using nostalgia and everyone claims has no games. Barring a miracle the wiiU is going to be dead last and at this point it's looking like it'll be lucky to catch the gamecube.

It just seems like if it really was a large factor in the wii it sure didn't have much holding power. I just don't think you can make the case, and even if you could for the wii, 3 out of 4 console generations for nintendo have been poor to devastating, if that's the best nostalgia can do they might want to try something different.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@aaronsullivan I think the biggest problem with suggesting nostalgia was a big part of wii sales is you have answer why it's suddenly not working anymore. Both for the 3ds(it's probably only going to sell half of what the ds did) and wiiU. Did everyone suddenly get infected with nostalgia for one single console generation and then suddenly get over it the next?

I'm not really suggesting it's not a factor but if it was so powerful wouldn't the wiiU be doing a whole lot better than it is considering it's games have relied almost solely on nostalgia?

If you can't see the difference between that and symphonia you havn't played symphonia. You're claiming MK has made such radical changes over the years that they're all completey different games but can't see the difference in the combat systems between graces and symphonia(and btw graces, symphonia, abyss, vesperia, hearts, xillia, and xillia 2 all have different combat systems).

I'll spell it out for you, symphonia uses a linear fixed combo system with a non-refilling tp gauge for artes, and jumping. Graces stays on a 2d plane but allows full motion, variable combos, refilling combo points for everything, and variable artes casting lengths.

You're proving my point that you're just writing things off because they're not made by nintendo. As I said smash is more of a button masher than tales is. And again if you're going to criticize something perhaps you should learn what it is you're actually criticizing.

@WWammy it's still not turn based.

These are examples of tales combat on difficulties above easy(ie the ai actually fights back).

And again think about this, you're saying tales games never change based on your experience with one tales game if you've even played it cause again it's not turn based.

@WWammy it has nothing to do with your personal enjoyment it has to do with a statement that is blatantly 100% false. It is totally untrue, you do not take turns in a tales game, it's an arpg with AI controlled party members. Whatever you think you've played it wasn't tales.

Yorumi commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

@kyuubikid213 the 3rd parties made trash argument is only partially true. Yes they made a lot of trash on the wiiU, but they also made quality games. Games like splinter cell blacklist, lego city, sonic racing, and rayman were largely ignored. Beyond that this problem isn't just a wiiU thing, it goes back generations. Historically, even while factoring in install base, 3rd party games sell much less on nintendo platforms than non-nintendo platforms. They've known for a while nintendo fans don't buy anything but nintendo games.

You can even see this in the comment sections of sites like this. How many times do you see people putting nintendo up on a pedestal saying they're better than the entire rest of the gaming industry? The eviscerate 3rd parties for doing the same things nintendo is guilty of. They even make such delusional statements like this I've seen multiple times: "the transformations in sonic racing didn't affect kart racing at all but the gliders in MK radically changed kart racers and is such an amazing idea."

Sadly that kind of thinking is far to prevalent on nintendo systems to allow 3rd parties any real chance.

Yorumi commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

@Xilef they're most likely using unity, which is platform independent. Even if they arn't, glsl shaders are the same on platforms running the same version of opengl. Core components like the voxel engine would also not be relying on any platform dependent libraries. With proper OOP design, and planning from the beginning for platform independence you can reuse a lot of code and do what they're suggesting with bug testing on the pc.

@Phil_Kavadias "I think you're just looking for excuses to criticize Nintendo"
Likewise I could say a lot of people are just looking for excuses to criticize everyone else or just looking for excuses to praise nintendo.

As for MK sequels are supposed to improve the games and add new features. How about dynamic tracks, short cuts that present actual choice, a track editor, making the vehicle states more than mostly cosmetic, like having air currents and updrafts for gliders.

@WWammy "You are showing your bias for the Tales series the combat system the basic principle of it is the same that it's real time combat you have your turn and then you mash some buttons and then it's the next players turn in your team win the battle"

You're joking right? This is so dishonest it borders on trolling. You don't take turns in a tales game, it's a arpg. You can freely attack, defend, dodge, and cast spells whenever you want. You have to watch enemies and look for openings to attack, dodge attacks from multiple directions at once, figure out when you have enough time to cast a spell without getting interrupted. The game's are less of button masher than smash is.

Maybe if you want to criticize the competition you might take a moment and learn what they're actually making and how the games play.

"PS could you name some of the developers in the rest of the industry so far I can only think of"

Off the top of my head, and not including indies: Atlus, KT, IF, CH, marvelous, activision blizzard, SE, rock star, WB, NIS, bungee, epic games, level 5, sony, naughty dog, obsidian, bioware(kind of depends, technically owned by EA but they are fairly independent) and I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot if I bothered to look it up.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@WWammy you're just showing the classic double standard. "Remasters are bad unless nintendo does them, it's find when MK's gameplay barely changes over 20 years but when an rpg completely overhauls the entire battle and level up system it's just a rehash."

@Phil_Kavadias I don't really think they're the best games in most cases. Sonic all-stars is better than MK, I found giana sisters to be a lot better than dkc:tf. Nintendo games are good but at best they're equal to the offerings on the other consoles. I love xenoblade a lot, it's one of the greatest rpgs last gen, but so are tales of graces and ni no kuni.

On the wii it was kind of true though, there wasn't anything like mario galaxy for example. But on the wiiU they're not really doing anything special right now so it's pretty hard to claim they're so much better than everyone else.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Nintendobro not quite sure I understand what you're saying. If it's about my comment of them playing it safe it's not about one particular game. They could do more to advance kart racing but that's not really the point. On the launch day of the n64 they had a great game that was like nothing anyone had ever seen before, mario 64 was really new and exciting, and was quickly followed up with starfox, oot and other such great game. The GC had rogue squadron pushing the limits of ai's on screen and luigi's manion was a new idea, along with games like pikmin, animal crossing, and more that were creative and new. The wii saw the likes of skyward sword, mario galaxy, and xenoblade.

With the wiiU where have they tried to push any boundaries, make something new and exicting, creative or innovative even? What's worse is so far the wiiU has been restricted to a tiny few genres. I'd like some variety, something new. Variety is really it, the 3ds doesn't bother me because even though I played mostly nintendo games I got fire emblem, animal crossing, zelda, pokemon, mario, mk, luigi's mansion, as well as some good 3rd party games. You have a mix of colorful fun games with darker and more mature games.

I just shouldn't have to wait 3 years after buy a console for a game made by nintendo that gets me seriously hyped.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@bloodycelt that's not necessarily true. They're having no real problem selling the 3ds for example. If the status symbol thing was all true the vita would be selling like crazy, at least be closer to the 3ds.

That said there's a difference between being number 1 and at least selling decently. With the examples of the n64 and the gamecube, having good games is only part of it, overall value is another big part. Remember in the switch from the snes to the n64/ps1 they lost major 3rd parties, capcom, square, enix(remember when they were separate?) etc. The n64 was basically nintendo and rare vs the world, and the gc was nintendo and the last gasps of a dying rare vs the world. Sure the n64 and gc had some absolutely amazing classics and some of the best games ever made, but so did the ps1/2 and they had more of them and more variety.

It's even worse for teh wiiU because we have a nintendo not really willing to push any boundaries like they were in the n64/gc days. Mario, smash, and mk are all just playing it safe, there's no killing game for non-hardcore nintendo fans.

Let me put it another way, I'm a hardcore nintendo fan. Played on every one of their systems since i got a NES when I was 5. Things can always change but right now, even factoring in xenoblade x, zelda u, and splatoon, I wouldn't buy nintendo's next gen home console. I'm really excited for xenoblade and zelda, but given the choice between those two games and everything else in the industry, the choice I'm sad to say is obvious.

I don't think all is lost, but if they keep doing exactly what they're currently doing they're doomed.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@bloodycelt while it's true they're still releasing a lot of games on last gen systems, that's going to change, and it's starting to. That said you'd still have to buy something that's not a nintendo system to play them. And I do agree that a niche console can have great games, but do any of those truly exist on the wiiU at this point? I'd argue no. There's nothing truly special or amazing about nsmb, dkc, 3dworld, mk, or even smash. It doesn't make them bad games but(granted I already own a wiiU) I wouldn't be sitting here saying "oh I just have to buy a whole new console to see the 16 new mk tracks".

Now I do think xenoblade and zelda will be killer games but that vs everything else in the industry? That's the problem nintendo is facing right now.

Yorumi commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

@sinalefa Sony just released freedom wars for the vita, a first party AAA title, and they've got another one in development.

For me both platforms are kind of equal, they both have a lot of games I like. Right now my vita is getting a lot more use than my 3ds, who knows if that will change.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@WWammy "and of course HD Remasters and definitive editions."

you mean like mm3d, oot3d, starfox 64 3d, wwhd, dkc returns 3d, xenoblade 3d? OOT the game they've rereelased like 4 times?

And seriously tales is more rehashed than freaken mario kart or nsmb? Oh give me a break that's utterly insane. This kind of blind devotion to nintendo is the reason they're in such bad shape. There are plenty of 3rd party games that are just as good as nintendo games but nintendo fans won't touch then cause they're not published by nintendo. The games don't sell on teh system so support is pulled. That's doomed their hardware because the only people they can get to buy it are the most hardcore nintendo fans and no one else.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@WWammy compare indies to any other game. Heck what indie compares to mario 3d world.

What else is there in the industry, oh lets see, toukiden, project diva, neptunia, tales of, sonic racing, the sims, atelier, warriors, and that's just things immediately off the top of my head. I just get really annoyed when people act like nintendo's rehashes are the only quality games in the industry because they can't be bothered to take a look around for a moment. I like my nintendo games but lets be real here, there's an entire industry out there making games, many of which are just as critically acclaimed as nintendo games.

Yorumi

#30

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@WWammy indie games really arn't filling the gaps though. They're almost all retro 2d games, and the thing is that's one of the things nintendo put out a lot of on the wiiU. If indies want to do something more than retro 2d games they encounter the same problems, and possibly worse than AAA devs(because at least AAA devs have experience making massive games).

I mean you can't exactly show someone dragon age inquisition and then have them respond "yeah but I've got shovel knight." Nothing against shovel knight but erm, not even close. I mean indies arn't even making something with the production values of a visual novel or a neptunia game, they really arn't even at ps1 levels let alone anything even close to current or last gen.

And again indies can fill in all those exact same gaps on the ps4 while also giving access to everything else in the game industry except a handful of nintendo games.

Yorumi

#31

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@bloodycelt they could get a ton of millage out of their existing IPs and cover a lot of genres. Hyrule warriors actually showed how the zelda universe can cover a lot. Starfox could cover all kinds of space and even shooter genres, speaking of we've already seen metroid prime, and metroid could certainly do horror. F-zero could actually cover the futuristic semi-realistic racer genre.

I'm not saying they need to strictly reuse all their existing IPs but the point is they're sitting on a lot of unused material and sticking to only a small range of genres.

Yorumi

#32

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@WWammy you're failing to understand the point. Nintendo isn't immune to any of this. Nintendo has to put the same time and resources into making a game as anyone else. The difference for the ps4/one is they have a LOT more developers making games. It doesn't matter how long it takes to make a game, different devs working in parallel will make more games than a single dev making games alone.

And again indies arn't a positive for nintendo cause it's a wash, the ps4 has them too, most of the same games too, there are very few nintendo exclusive indies. And the latest innovations in gaming arn't all in the indies. Some are doing cool things some arn't, just like some AAA devs are doing interesting things and some arn't.

Yorumi

#33

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@WWammy just want to point out one current complaint about the ps4 is that it's an indie machine and being flooded with indies. Saying nintendo has indies is kind of like saying the xbox has CoD, yeah and so does everyone else. The ps4 might even have more indies than nintedo cause few of nintendo's indies are exclusive.

Yorumi

#35

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Phil_Kavadias The only difference is giving advice on the game or helping with development. They're both offering money for an exclusive, one is just offering something extra on top of the money.

@Quorthon they need both, nostalgia does sell games, but like anything else it needs to be taken in moderation. Even indies making original games can still bank on nostalgia like shovel knight for example. Nintendo's problem is their relying almost exclusively on nostalgia and nothing else(ie holding a button to run).

Yorumi

#36

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Vineleaf because there's actually quite a lot out there from 3rd parties that fit a lot of different styles. Bioware games are still pretty good and solid rpgs. The dark souls games are great for pretty hardcore challenges. In the works you have one company using procedurally generated content to create and entire universe and let you explore it in your space ship. Another one is doing a space sim where instead of piloting a fighter you are in command of a capital ship.

Rpgs like tales of graces, vesperia, xillia are great, and lets not forget ni no kuni. The vita has some good ideas in the hunting genre with games like toukiden, soul sacrifice, and freedom wars. Often times anime adaptations are terrible but the new sao:ls is looking really good, and sao:hf was good. And I havn't even gotten into the otaku games.

There's a lot more to 3rd parties than just ea and ubisoft and you'd be quite amazed what's all out here. And just to throw this out there but nintendo also gets a lot of praise from fans beyond what the games really are. Yes they're good, but many other companies make games that are just as good as nintendo games too.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Light it's because we're big nintendo fans and we're watching nintendo slowly kill themselves. Someone doesn't have to like only nintendo games or only CoD. The biggest problem nintendo needs to solve is variety. I know people arn't forced to have only one console but the scales weigh heavily against nintendo and that's not good for nintendo fans.

@Darknyht probably, ultimately though they're a pretty terrible company right now so they're not the greatest of examples for anything.

@Gridatttack I don't play CoD but I get the feeling from the way people talk about it that it's kind of like pokemon with how people say it's the same game everything. Fans though see all the changes and understand why they keep buying it. Granted the yearly releases are overkill.

Yorumi

#38

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Gridatttack well that's the thing though CoD and sports games arn't the only games on the system. We're 2 years into the wiiU's life and there's what 3 games that can really be said to be new and refreshing? Meanwhile some of what's in development for the other consoles actually looks truly new and original.

I've actually found more new and refreshing games on my vita than my wiiU. That's kind of scary when you think about it. I really do want nintendo to be better than they currently are, that's largely why I've been fairly negative lately. Sony is quickly eclipsing nintendo and making it harder and harder to justify the wiiU at all. I don't want to see nintendo die out but sadly that's what they're currently in the process of doing.

Yorumi

#39

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Gridatttack how much "new and refreshing" is nintendo doing though? 2d mario, 2d dk, zelda remake, sequel to 3dland, pikmin sequel, mk sequel, smash sequel, warriors reskinned as zelda, and bayonetta sequel. Your criticism applies as much if not more to nintendo and the wiiU.

Yorumi

#40

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Phil_Kavadias "partnering" with the few 3rd parties doing anything isn't really any different than just paying for an exclusive. The few 3rd party games that exist on the wiiU are practically all the result of nintendo basically paying the companies to put the games on the wiiU.

Consider the wiiU's position here, nintendo has to pay developers to make a game for their system. The competition has developers coming to them and has to pay devs not to port games. At some point you have to buy something to game on. If I could have only one, pc, ps4, xone, wiiU, the wiiU sadly wouldn't even be a consideration for me.

Yorumi

#41

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Phil_Kavadias let me preface this by saying I understand this perfectly from a business standpoint. Really the only reason the wiiU has anything that can't be found on other consoles is because nintendo doesn't release their games on anything else. Imagine if sony shelled out hundred of millions of dollars or more to secure 80% of the 3rd party games to be ps4 exclusive forever. Everyone would be saying oh yeah ps4 is the system to have it's the best value. So it's somewhat artificial. We're essentially holding it as a negative that other companies have diversified and given gamer's options and nintendo isn't.

@NintendoMan94 the biggest problem with MK8 is it's just kind of more of the same. In a lot of ways if you've played one MK you've played them all. They've done little to innovate in the series. Underwater, gliders, and anti-grav had virtually no impact on the gameplay just the visuals. I don't believe they need to radically reinvent the entire game with every iteration would it kill them to try some new ideas?

So for long time MK players it's growing stale, it's the same old game. They need to stay true to the game while making sequels feel fresh and new.

Yorumi

#42

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Darknyht game breaking bugs and day one patches, like smash 3ds? And Watch dogs isn't a great example either since it's also on wiiU. If it's any better than the competitor's version it's only cause ubisoft didn't care about the wiiU and delayed it so they had time to apply the patches before release.

@Dr_Corndog depends on the game and pc's are still more expensive(by a good marign) and more complicated than consoles. I have a really powerful gaming pc and even then there are a lot of times I simply prefer the ease of a console where I can start up a game and rarely have to worry about anything at all.

Yorumi

#43

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

And the ps4 is having a sale that you can get a system and both last of us and gta 5. I guess maybe it's a better value now but it's going to lose that really fast. Sure we can all talk about CoD being milked but that's not the only game they have. Dragon Age:I is getting near perfect reviews, it's tempting me to get a ps4, they just launched little big planet, halo is out for the xbone, the future is looking good for the ps4.

I mean at this moment in time their libraries are kind of equal in terms of good games and the wiiU had a year head start. The wiiU is falling behind and soon it's library is going to be eclipsed by the offerings of the other systems. Nintendo fans like to say every game not on a nintendo system is junk but it's really not true. Nintendo's problem has been their arrogance, their games appeal to nintendo fans, the other systems are getting diverse games that appeal to a lot of different markets including some pretty niche markets.

Yorumi commented on Nintendo Is Bringing Holiday Magic To Shopping...:

@IceClimbers I get the feeling it's a very limited ad buy. Remember I wasn't talking about the ps4 ads over a year but over a 2 hour period. Xbox was less but still there.

They have games that appeal to diverse age groups out right now and they should be hitting that like crazy. The need to generate a lot of hype for the wiiU more than anything. I can't go one night without seeing ps4 and one ads, why isn't the wiiU the same? Streams and youtube show me ads for WoW, ps4, and one, as well as some other pc games, no wiiU. And really my browser history among other things is filled with nintendolife, hyrule warriors, and trailer searches for wiiU games(my sister's often ask me about games instead of search themselves cause they know I'm an easy source of information), etc so any kind of targeted ads should be hitting me.

If their internet ads arn't targeting people actually searching youtube for wiiU games then they have failed on a colossal level. Even this event is following a similar pattern of small visibility. The nearest one to me(and I live in one of the bigger cities in florida) is a 2 hour drive from me and the next one after that is about 1000 miles and 4 states away. God help you if you live in alabama, or georgia. I would be willing to wager that 80+% of potential customers won't even know this is going on at all.

@IceClimbers some of the channels I watch they should be advertising on. Some people say this but where are they, how can I not turn around without seeing a ps4/one commercial while I've somehow just missed this giant marketing campaign by nintendo? Seriously in the week I watch spike, trutv, hgtv, dicovery family(formally the hub still a kid's network), animal planet, regular discovery, history, science, disney, comedy central, and bbc america.

All those channels and I've not managed to see one single wiiU commercial? I've seen 3ds ads, not wiiU. Hell on spike sony is advertising everything from little big planet to gta 5. I can't help but be a bit incredulous when there's supposedly this mass wiiU market campaign while I can see everything but wiiU ads.

Yorumi commented on The November Club Nintendo Rewards Are Now Up ...:

@Krambo42 you think all these companies have all these reward programs just because they're so kind and charitable they want to give things away? The idea is to add value to a product or brand to convince people to buy from you and not the other guy. Credit card companies didn't just decide they wanted to buy everyone a vacation they did it to get people to use their cards, and more people using their cards means more stores are paying the fee to have the card accepted in their store.

It's not much different here, the point of club nintendo is to gather data about their customers and since non-nintendo games offer coins in a case where you have a choice between buying a game on a nintendo system or a competitor the coins add more value to the game on the nintendo system. Well so long as they're offering rewards people actually care about.

Yorumi

Yorumi commented on Nintendo Is Bringing Holiday Magic To Shopping...:

It's a start, but they could try, you know, advertising the system where people will see it. Last night in a two hour span I saw 5 ps4 commercials for 3 different games and 2 xbox one commercials. You know how many wiiU commercials I've seen in the last year? Zero.

It really should just be extra buttons, this is an n64 game after all, it's not pushing the system to it's limits. Yeah yeah it's got updated graphics they're still a long way from what the system is capable of. Anything about processing power is going to be complete BS when it comes to this game.
