Re: Irony regarding Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U aka Super Smash Bros. 2014

The numbers from the first post mean that 33% of WiiU owners own the game, while something like 13 or 14% of 3DS owners do. More amazingly, Mario Kart 7 sold to something like 10% of 3DS owners while more than 50% of Wii U owners bought Mario Kart 8. More impressive, that number doesn't take into ac...

Re: Things only a gamer can take seriously?

I work really, really hard to repay a mortgage to a raccoon, because then I'll be able to remortgage with him so I can finally have a room to put all my super hero costumes in. (That's Animal Crossing in case anyone thinks I'm having a psychotic break). In Etrian Odyssey I spend 20 minutes walking i...

Re: A rant on Sony/Microsoft and Nintendo on not doing a good job keeping their so called 8th Gen exclusives to console!

What is the Nintendo I.D. program? As Nintendo has been getting rid of Club Nintendo it has been explaining this is in preparation of a new unified account system with one I.D. across platforms. The platforms they have listed are, if memory serves, consoles, handhelds, mobile devices, and PC. So fa...

Re: A rant on Sony/Microsoft and Nintendo on not doing a good job keeping their so called 8th Gen exclusives to console!

I love the care and attention given to games that are exclusive (Halo, Zelda, Uncharted, etc. clearly benefit). However, I don't generally want games exclusive to one system. I don't have an Xbox One. I do have a PC I sometimes game on. One of these days when I upgrade my laptop, I'll be able to pla...

Re: E3 time!

Backwards compatibility actually goes back to the Atari golden age in the early 1980s. The Atari 2600 was a huge hit, and the next model they came out with was the 5200. However the 5200 had a very different architecture, and was not compatible - but consumers did not understand why the hundreds of...

Re: The Final Fantasy VII Remake Thread

Just what this industry needed, ANOTHER remaster. :roll: Just what Hollywood needs, ANOTHER movie release that was in theatres, then on VHS for rental, then on VHS for sale, then on TV, then on DVD, then in gold edition on DVD, then re-released in theatre, then with the re-release on pay per view, ...

Re: E3 time!

3 - It's a close race still in the US, worldwide is obvious, because Microsoft has zero presence in Japan so Sony will win the console war worldwide regardless. Anyone have the numbers on Xbox and Ps4 in America? Because my understanding from all the monthly NPD U.S. numbers is that it isn't really...

Re: E3 time!

Boy am I glad Nintendo did those two pre-E3 directs and the extra announcements during the World Championships. They needed that extra time! Man, we had, um... Star Fox and the Ballblazer game is actually some kind of online Metroid thing or something. Oh, and there's an Animal Crossing board game, ...

Re: E3 time!

Sony seems to have a habit of throwing unnecessary padding into their conferences(I.E. showing fan letters at last year's E3) and that's something they ought to fix. It's especially surprising given that they now also have their own multi-day conference (PSX) where they made a bunch of announcement...

Re: E3 time!

DAMN... Sony... I'm impressed.... What I said above about the presentation aside, No Man's Sky, The Last Guardian, and the Final Fantasy Remake reveal really were probably the best things we'll see at this E3. (Although an official Mother localization, Street Fighter Commands in Smash Bros, and the...
