Re: Video Gaming news

A funny thing on the amiibo front. This means amiibos work on skylander bases, so is this the beginning of Nintendo on other consoles? Can Johnny Xbox now play Mario with his swap force? Can Playstation Patty perchance play Princess Peach with her pufferthorn? Sadly, no. I believe they are specific...

Re: E3 time!

Hmm, I don't think so. Nintendo pretty much showed off 3DS games and Wii U games. It's now clear to me at least that the NX is coming out next year. Else, we'd have seen the demos of possible Wii U games Miyamoto demoed last year at e3 or failing that new, unannounced games. I've changed my guess f...

Re: Video Gaming news

Nintendo announced that the 1989 Famicom only game Mother, the predecessor to Earthbound (and Mother 3) is being released in English on the WiiU eshop. And its out today. Some gamers are blowing trumpets in celebration, others are wondering why bringing a 25 year 8 bit old game to the eshop is wort...

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: 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...
