zeldagaymer93 commented on Reminder: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Out Now for ...:

@crzysortagamer Please don't let that turn you away from the game. Like I said, even the first hour of the game was incredible and I am about 5 hours in and I think everything about the story, gameplay, universe is great. While the character models are horrendous and are a little distracting sometimes, I still think it's worth the play through.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

First off, I am very excited for this game and it looks amazing! I cannot wait for it come out!

However! I don't think it's going to really sell hardware. There will be a slight increase the week it comes out but that's probably it. And I can see the software sales being huge the week of release but then sharply drop after that. Nintendo has no idea how to market their products nowadays. They think that the whole world watches Nintendo Directs when in reality only the die hard fans do. Get a bigger advertising budget, Nintendo.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask N...:

I understand the idea of a limited edition. However, I feel like there should be enough stock for those that want it at release. That way it's limited to the die-hard fans that wanted it week one and if you miss it then you're out of luck (but at least you had a chance!) That's how it should work, imo!



zeldagaymer93 commented on Famitsu Article Reportedly Inks Out More Splat...:

Lmao, Nintendo fans hate when other gamers call Nintendo "kiddie" but Nintendo still doesn't add voice chat into games that are based around communication. I love Nintendo but their censorship is so outdated. Get with the times already. You should have online voice chat for this game w/ the ability to turn it off if you don't want to hear people. And there should be an option for parental controls to turn it off. But at least give the OPTION to have voice chat for the majority of people that want it.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Wii U Enjoyed Its Best Ever Month of US Sales ...:

@Nintendo69 I am in love with Nintendo and I appreciate many Nintendo and non-Nintendo games. Though, I was also a business student and I'm an accountant. While I am happy that their sales have increased a little bit, it's still pretty sad to see the low sales figures. You don't have to be a fanboy to point out that going from supper awful sales to just awful sales isn't that great.

It's like that episode of Arrested Development when the company stock goes from "sell" to "don't buy." Sure it's an improvement! But it's still not that great.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

@Gorlokk The Xbox One bundle was only $330 this weekend and the PS4 bundle was $400. Some people don't really have a preference of which console they get since they are both powerful and play pretty much the same games give or take a few exclusives. So clearly the Xbox One will sell more.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Sales: D
First party games currently on the market: B
Third party games: F
Indie games: C-
Power of system: B-
Online capabilities: C+

I'd say a C- is a fair score. Nintendo really needs to do something about their marketing still. They need to convince parents why they should buy their kids a Wii U. Most families I know have a Wii and tablet/phone games.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Banjo-Kazooie:

This is literally my favorite video game of all time. I even bought a 360 before the next Banjo came out just so I knew I could play it when it did. Boy was Nuts and Bolts a disappointment. I know not to fall for that trick again.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

There is way too much hate on this thread. The only last-gen console I owned was a Wii and this generation I have a Wii U AND a PS4. I have to say that I like some of these remastered games because I never got the chance to play them on an older console. Clearly Sony has done their research and they know that these games will sell. So well done, Sony.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Video: Nintendo Unleashes Its Official E3 2014...:

Right after the Digital Event I was a little disappointed. I thought it was just an okay/good showing. However, the Treehouse live streaming and the Smash Invitational really helped to hit it out of the park this year. I love Nintendo but I usually think Sony or Microsoft "wins" the conference, but this year I honestly think that Nintendo is the champion. It's so great to see them trying this hard to please the consumers!

Long live Nintendo.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Shovel Knight Launches in North America on Wii...:

They have set many release windows and dates before so I'm not going to believe it until I can actually download it! I don't mind when it takes awhile for a game to be developed but you can't set a date then a week before say "Never mind!"



zeldagaymer93 commented on Review: Ittle Dew (Wii U eShop):

It's really sad to see people hating on the game before even playing it. I have been having a blast so far! And yes there are some bugs here and there but honestly it doesn't happen that much or they are so small that you can barely even notice they are there. If you're on the fence it's definitely worth the $10.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

@DimetriWarrior I know you mean well but I just have to say:

You said since the way it's rated, it's probably a good idea to leave out same-sex marriages? So if a male and female start a life together, get married, and have children that can go into an E rated game. But if a male/male or female/female start a life, get married, and raise children together then it should be rated what? R?

What about the children that have same-sex parents that play this game? What is it telling them? That their parents are glitches? And since some parents aren't mature enough to handle reality then you have to leave gay couples out?



zeldagaymer93 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

I'm glad they finally explained themselves a little better but it's still not an excuse to leave out same-sex marriage. Just like in real life, if you don't like gay marriage then don't get gay married. In a simulation game like this why would I want to get married to a female if I am gay? I'm not going to buy it. But yes, it's good that they cleared the air of some of those issues.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

@rastamadeus The point is most of the games are coming to PS4/Xbone (and yes a few to PS3/360) but none of them are coming to Wii U or Wii. Yeah Nintendo has a few really good exclusives coming out this year. But it's not enough to win people over. And the fact that PS4 sales have almost caught up to Wii U shows that.

And I own a Wii U and PS4. So I can tell you the Wii U is pretty barren.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

@Assassinated Some of your points are a little harsh and exaggerated but for the most part I agree with you. I have been defending Nintendo and the Wii U for so long now but after yesterdays Direct and looking at the 2014 Wii U line up compared to PS4... It's really sad that Nintendo didn't surprise us with something. Most of the Direct was focused on the 3DS which isn't a smart business decision since the 3DS is already selling and already has many great games.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

@rastamadeus Not including indies the Wii U has Donkey Kong, Mario Kart, Smash, X, Bayonetta, Watch Dogs, and Hyrule Warriors slated to release this year.

Playstation 4 has Watch Dogs, Infamous, Drive Club, The Witcher 3, Game of Thrones Telltale, The Order 1886, Metal Gear Solid 5, Deep Down, Dying Light, Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor and maybe Uncharted. So far... To say Wii U has a stronger lineup is hilarious.



zeldagaymer93 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

It's really sad that the first Nintendo Direct of 2013 brought us huge new announcements and the first one of 2014 brought nothing exciting to the table. Their main focus is on the 3DS which isn't a smart business move since the 3DS is having no problems selling. The amount of games coming to PS4/Xbone in 2014 compared to Wii U is such a huge gap. Come on Nintendo... I defended you the first year the console was out but now it's just sad.
