Re: 2015 is not a good year for the VGC

I mean you get to talk about the games and people agree with you. Sounds pretty boring. If everyone agreed with me on a forum, that'd tell me it was time to find a better forum. I already know what I think; I want to be disagreed with to test and refine my beliefs. "Hey guys, know what I like,...

Re: Nintendo NX - What Are Your Thoughts?

Rev, I have to disagree on every point. The biggest push from Nintendo all year is a multi-player shooter about Squids shooting paint that has been given everything from multiple Directs, to Betas, to free DLC. They're other big game is a sequel to Xenoblade, which is hardly a tired franchise. Mario...

Re: Nintendo NX - What Are Your Thoughts?

I found this and felt it goes over in the NX topic vs the e3 topic. http://www.themarysue.com/nintendo-wii-u-may-be-dead/ [i]Unless Tanabe is mistaken, the cat’s out of the bag, and the Wii U’s successor will be unveiled at next year’s E3, when the Wii U will only be four years old. Again though, i...

Re: E3 time!

hehe, let's agree to disagree! The other reason my hunch is they're not announcing the NX this year is to avoid cannibalizing any Wii U consoles until the NX arrives. If they announced this year, well, there goes Wii U sales from now through Q4 of 2016. We can certainly agree to agree to disagree. ...

Re: Nintendo NX - What Are Your Thoughts?

Considering Nintendo got stupid lazy this June with their live event, I'm open for any predictions at this point. I'm hoping Nintendo actually breaks the mold next year, if they don't then the Wii U is officially their third lukewarm system (with the GameCube being a bit more appealing). That's thr...

Re: Nintendo NX - What Are Your Thoughts?

Hey, is it too late to make predictions in this thread. I've given the NX some thought and here are a couple thoughts: It's the combined handheld/tablet/ console a lot of people predict. NX is the code name because the X is following the convention where X means cross. It's the Nintendo Cross (i.e. ...

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...
