Title: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on June 07, 2011, 09:14:28 pm
The Thread is not about the WiiU anymore, everything about Nintendo, like news, questions etc can be posted here including retro stuff as well as the latest WiiU or 3DS games

The shape makes me think it will be apt to overheat.

Also not sure how long I'll want to hold a controller the size of a small cat.

Nintendo is known for making extremely reliable hardware so I doubt it will overheat.

I know.
I just thought it looked like my 360.
I've convinced myself that the shape must be the problem.

Hey, if they can make the very awkward N64 controller work then I'm all up for it.

Post by: Shocksconstant on June 07, 2011, 10:19:14 pm
I think I'll just call this thing the,"U" instead
I simply can't say WiiU without it sounding hilarious.

I like WU personally. Sounds less like a retired comedy routine. I wonder how comfortable the Wu will be. The N64 controller is still one of my faves. Strangely comfortable.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: OZ on June 07, 2011, 10:23:46 pm
Seeing as the N64 controller worked, they probably could have pulled off a plywood controller covered in cactus needles.

This one looks...bulky. I never thought of a controller being the same size as the 360's powerbox.
They're probably trying to challenge preconceived notions of what a controller is and what it should look like.
Or how much sensory information it can deliver to it's user.

Nintendo strives to maintain it's position as most likely to induce a seisure.

I would actually worry if controllers would get more and more smaller. Nowadays I can't hold a NES controller without getting my hands uncomfortable.

Its funny but I think the N64 controller was great. I never had any problems with it. And I have to agree, the name is a bit weird. I wonder what the "U" stands for. If Wii is saying "WE" then are they trying to say "We" (Nintendo) "Unique" "Ultimate" "Unstoppable" lol They sure have a way of naming their systems. Did you see the Clips for Zelda? Thing looks amazing.

I like the fact that you can stream the game on the controller, though I find it bad for those who are bad parents and have consoles baby sit their children. Now instead of making them stop so you can watch your shows you can just have them play on the controller itself. Wii is now the home console to a DS. Im pretty sold on it... I just cant imagine the price of another controller. What price range do you think this new Nintendo is going to be?
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Dken2021 on June 07, 2011, 10:38:02 pm
From what I've seen now, it's pretty much a super wii with a screen for the controller. I'll wait and see if the games would be worth the purchase.

Disliked the N64 controller as well, i thought its analoguestick was a bit too long/high

i remember having blisters on my thumbs everytime when i played KI Gold more than some minutes

never had that with any other controlers
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on June 07, 2011, 10:43:29 pm
What price range do you think this new Nintendo is going to be?

My bet:  battle prize for 200-249 dollars with one controller and even one game ..probably something like wii sports

But, a second controller around 79-99 dollars.

Also i bet! But i have no hint or real informations

that the WiiU wont even have the graphical power as the XB360 or the PS3

It has maybe twice the power of a wii..is my wild guess

the N64 controller was ergonomically designed to hurt your hands

I can only imagine that this thing will be heavier than the traditional controller.
I'm trying to imagine playing SSB on this thing.

I just noticed that in the size comparison chart, they compared it to a plethora of things that aren't controllers.
And what's funny is that it almost looks as though they're trying use it's size as a selling point.

I think its just going to be in pare with the other systems. Im not too sure if it would surpass Ps3 and 360. But as always and from past systems, Nintendo are the only ones that completely tap into their systems graphical output while the other developers project look like crap most of the time excluding the Resident Evils and Metal Gear for the Cube/Wii. I just hope they take out the friend code crap from it and hopefully we get to see a Tatsunoko Vs Capcom 2. Game wasnt that bad, just slow. Either way they dont match to MVC2. Any ways, another thought is whats going to happen to the virtual games that you have on the Wii? As we know it we cant transfer over games to another Wii system so I wonder how they are going to work that out without having you to pay extra.

Why would you carry it around? not like you are going to leave the house. Even my PS3 controller sits on my lap while I am playing unless im leaning on a table with my arms sitting down. I dont think its going to be that heavy. If anything the iPad might weigh more.

Lets not forget something, even if the WiiU games can be compared graphically with xb360 and ps3 games..and we would see the same games on all three systems again like in 2001 with the ps2,gc and the xb

the xb360 and ps3 are since 5/6 years on the market and we probably see new consoles in 2013 which will both again make a technical difference as we know it today between the nintendo vs xb360/ps3 graphics

i am not a graphic whore, but that means probably big third party support for the microsoft and sony consoles which would see sequels of successful franchises while the wiiu would ..like the wii see only some halfway good ports (dead rising, wwe smackdown etc) and mostly games made for the "casual" gamer (think the various petz games, sims etc)

And now, the "casual gamer" market is divided even..its not the same situation as in 2005 due to kinect and move


If Nintendo cant get a really big third party support this time, with games you didnt see on nintendo consoles normally..like GTA, Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect and what else is very popular they will lose a lot money in thenext years
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread

They already mention that Rock Star is doing a game for Nintendo which was mentioned in Gameinformer. Not to mention EA and others are already backing up Nintendo. On top of that Nintendo isnt doing what they did with the Wii which is not even showing game companies their console. They already gotten their hands on the console and started to develop games for it.

I see 360 launching a new system. As for PS3 i doubt it for the simple fact that companies are still have trouble understanding how to do games for the PS3. My choice of words might not be correct on this (last sentence I wrote) but I do remember Sony saying that their system is going to have a life span of 10 years and not 5. 360 would need to release a new system maybe to start using Blue-Ray disc so they dont feel like a PS1 having to have multiple disc to play a game.

Im not a graphic whore either. In fact games have been so repetitive with all companies following a damn trend that I just started to play old school games starting with my PS1/Snes RPGs because the quality is far better. I am just tired of every game that comes out to be a FPS. I like them but enough is enough. There are just too many out.

Sony really wants to wait 10 years to release a PS4. If I were them I wouldn't feel safe doing that. Because I have Sega related paranoia when it comes to how often to release a console.

LOL i dont know, I just feel like it would be a waste of money to come out with a ps4. due to the fact that there wasnt much released on the ps3. only thing good was the Kill Zones, Little big planets, and the Uncharteds. And now with the New nintendo being supported by other developers people are gonna be like hmmmm should i get it for the 360? Wii? or PS3?

I dont know man, the way the industry is going, little by little im starting to dislike video games. Now I know how those old school people rather stay retro lol

THIS

is exactly what i think about most (not all) games of the current generation as well. Games today are often trying to be like a action movie. Thats why i often play old games and/or "indie" games lately. Witcher 2 was a exception

At first I was unsure about the controller but now nintendo has really won me over, the graphics are amazing and the controller works well with the games and I think nintendo will make it so for most games only 1 controller is needed and you can use wiimotes for multiplayer etc so you won't have to spend £80 on a new controller

Here's hoping that WiiU games will look better.

after doing some research (http://www.gameinformer.com/b/news/archive/2011/06/07/could-project-caf-233-be-the-best-platform-for-darksiders-ii.aspx):
Quote
At the very least, Vigil believes that gamers can look forward to ports to Nintendo’s new console that are not inferior to every other version of the game. When we asked Bonstead if he thought it was possible that the Wii U version of Darksiders II would be the best version of the game, he said, "Yeah, just because the hardware is more powerful and it will have some extra features that I think will actually be useful to people playing the game. With it’s controller, [the Wii U version of Darksiders II] might be the best version of the game."
WiiU is more powerful than PC, you heard it here first.

Well its true what he said. They have the Box, now its up to developers to push the system. The software is just as important as the system. But to me, if developers couldnt push the wii in the first place, what are they going to accomplish with WU? I hate games on multiple platforms its like saving a picture in either Jpg, Gif, and PNG lol

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime revealed that while the Wii U will still be compatible with Wii software, its predecessor's backward compatibility with the GameCube will not be making an appearance.

Might be the same reason you had to use a GC controller to play those games.

I'm not really enthused by this. The answer to the Kinect is basically a free android phone with every new wii purchased. I mean I like angry birds, but not enough to buy the wii version.

I think I will just wait until the Kinect is available for windows without a hack, and go back to PC gaming.

Your joke detector is off. And I am not wrong about it being a phone. My current phone has all of the features of that controller. There should be an app for that, and make it work with the old wii over bluetooth. I don't see this as a step forward in gaming really. I'm sure it will be great for Star wars games and shit, but it isn't enough to make me not envy the Kinect.

I think I would buy the controller when they hack it for windows or something, but there is going to be like 10 games that will even really use this thing, just like what happened with the wiimote and the wiifit.

Sorry, but I am a little jaded after seeing the potential of just the wii mote and how little it was utilized. The same way I was jaded by the lack of zapper and that light gun on snes.

gamecube games required specific gamecube ports for the controllers and memory cards. while it would've been nice if the wii was capable of using its internal memory or sd cards to save gamecube games it wasn't possible due to hardware limitations. this is similar to how sony dropped ps2 compatibility on the ps3 slim at one point. stop talking shit

Yeah as I said before, that controller is like having a home only DS console. If the developers get it together and put their creativity to work, they can actually do a lot with it. As for phone games sorry to say, only a hand full are good and the rest is just plain crap. I dont see the whole thing about angry birds; that game isnt all that.

Maybe because Nintendo sucks when revealing hardware. Wii's first presentation was as bad if not worse than Wii u.

It only picked steam in the next E3 when they showed Galaxy and Brawl.

I think that's related to release day, the console + 2 controllers will be sold as a package. Of course the controllers will be sold separately later! Be logic for a second, there are games that use more than 2 controllers! I dont think nintendo expects everybody to drag around their controller to other people's houses.

That's dumb... but oh well, the console's name is dumb aswell so...

wait... even dumber, games are only designed to use ONE  tablet lol! yeah nintendo go to hell.

Michel Ancel, the creator of Rayman and Beyond Good and Evil, has said that he does not think Nintendo's new console should be deemed 'next-gen'.

Asked if the Wii U is a next-generation machine, Ancel replied: "Not really. I think Wii U is next-gen in terms of interface."

Speaking to VideoGamer.com at E3, Ancel explained how he thinks others will be quick to imitate Nintendo.

"I think people are going to copy it, because you've got this mix between tablet, touch screen and big screen – big screen and little screen - there are a lot of possibilities."

Pressed on this issue - whether he expected Microsoft or Sony to cook up something similar - Ancel replied: "I don't know if Sony will do it, or Microsoft – but yes, I think it's a possibility. But I think the main thing is to have this – offering new ways to play is very interesting."

Ubisoft currently has several projects in development for Wii U, although Ancel was quick to confirm that Rayman was not one of them.

Wii U has last-gen Radeon inside, still more advanced than PS3 and Xbox 360

Quote
Slowly, but surely, we're starting to piece together what's going on inside that mysterious white box known as the Wii U. IBM was a little coy about the multi-core CPU it was providing, but did tantalize us by mentioning the name "Watson" in describing some of its underlying tech. Now details about the custom Radeon GPU are starting to surface and, while certainly capable, it's not exactly cutting edge. At its heart is a chip similar to the R770 found in AMD's last-gen cards like the 4890 and, before you dismiss it, remember the PS3 and Xbox 360 are still capable of pumping out impressive visuals while packing five-year-old silicon (The 360 is essentially running a souped up ATI X1900). The custom core also supports Direct X 10.1 (Microsoft runs out of steam with Direct X 9) and Eyefinity-like multi-display tech for up to four SD video streams -- though it'll be up to Nintendo and developers to put that to good use. In case you're still not convinced of the Wii U's graphical prowess, Crytek has said its advanced CryEngine is "pretty much" up and running on Nintendo's upcoming console -- and, if it's good enough for Crysis, it should be good enough for you

Nintendo Having Serious Problems Getting the Wii U Working?

Since French site 01Net has proven itself somewhat reliable when it comes to Nintendo leaks of late, it's worth going back and looking at some of its other reports on the company's happenings over the past month. Like this one, that the Kyoto-based company is having problems getting the Wii U up and running. Big problems.

According to 01Net's report, the hardware powering the Wii U simply isn't up to scratch to do what Nintendo needs it to: Namely, run not just the console, but beam data to its fancy touch-screen controller as well. Apparently developers working on the console are having to use "tethers" to ensure serviceable communication between the Wii U and its controller, but even then things still aren't working that well, and progress is reportedly halted daily with repeated software updates for the pad.

The source spilling the beans—who, given the publication, sounds like it could be a European third-party developer—also says that these problems have caused a delay in the console's launch, an original June 2012 release now being pushed back to sometime around September.

While there's no way of proving this as of yet (we've contacted Nintendo for comment, by the way), if true, it certainly makes the Wii U sound "rushed". Which would fit Nintendo's pattern of late! I've always felt the 3DS was rushed (to meet a March deadline, thus brightening up Nintendo's end-of-year fiscals), from its midnight announcement to its single thumbstick to its delayed services release.

If this report is correct, it shouldn't surprise too many people that the Wii U has been put on a similar development fast-track, one aimed at getting a new home console to the market as quickly as possible to compensate for a sharp decline in Wii sales.


Well..wouldnt be the first time Nintendo shows a prototype of a console and the machine in stores works different and with less poer and features as advertised before

Wii U has quad core 3GHz CPU, 768 MB of RAM
52
On December 2nd, 2011 in News, Rumor

Wii U specsNintendo is finally set to release a new, much more powerful console with HD graphics, and many are wondering what kind of technology we might find inside the console, and how it will compare with the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. We’ve heard from developers who have access to the console that the Wii U is “50% more powerful” than the Xbox 360 and PS3. We now know that those estimates of 50% are based on the fact that the Wii U is around 50% more powerful on paper, according to information Wii U Daily obtained from a Japanese developer who is currently working on porting a PS3 game to the Wii U.

According to the source, the Wii U specs are:

    Quad Core, 3 GHz PowerPC-based 45nm CPU, very similar to the Xbox 360 chip.
    768 MB of DRAM “embedded” with the CPU, and shared between CPU and GPU
    Unknown, 40nm ATI-based GPU

The source also mentions that Nintendo has been testing two versions of the console, one with 768 MB of RAM, and one with 1 GB. The RAM is also made by IBM and is embedded with the processor on the same die/silicon, which results in more bandwidth.

These were the specs that Nintendo showed developers around March 2011, so it’s unknown how close to the final specs these are, considering there’s a year until the console is scheduled for release.

When it was unveiled earlier this year, Nintendo confirmed that the Wii U would support 1080p graphics and 3D is possible as well.

http://wiiudaily.com/2011/12/wii-u-has-quad-core-3ghz-cpu-768-mb-of-ram/

Around 50% more "raw" power sounds realistic to me even when these specs are from march already, since the console comes many years after the ps3 and xb360, that it wont be a true "next gen" when it comes to the graphics and will most likely again be outdated when the next MS and Sony hardware is on the market was to be expected. However i dont think that would be a problem for Nintendo, they managed to make the Wii a giant success while it is basically not much more than a gamecube 1,5 so they wont have big problems selling the Wii-U as well i bet.

It will be interesting to see how publishers will use the situation, it wont be easy for them sometimes for multiplatform games if they have 2 similar strong  consoles on the market and one with a lot more power.

2012 will be a exciting year i bet!

Yeah and with no games really worth playing on it there really is no reason to rush out and buy one. ZombiU and Scribblenauts Unlimited were maybes, but why do that when Scribblenauts is on Steam with Steam Workshop support and ZombiU looking very disappointing? Hopefully by Bayo 2s release all of this will be fixed and I can pick one up without trouble.

Well, at least they're rushing it out because OMG HOLIDAY SEASON. Also, I don't see how ZombieU doesn't look promising, I thought it was almost a selling point by itself, although probably not enough for many.


And while we're here discussing why there's no reason to buy a WiiU, Nintendo says the demand is phenomenal, there's already shortage, and they're expediting shipments which won't be able to fulfill the projected future demand.

YEs, because it's a good lineup and I see potential coming from said lineup. What can you say about the other portable game devices on the market that can reflect this, hm? Also pretty sure there was announcements for more than just handheld games, that and we got another good game already made(Luigi's mansion dark moon, you should play it.) So yes, this is a good year for Nintendo. Oh and it's the Year of Luigi and we're only getting a handful of Luigi stuff, hence why I had fun and swapped it around.

The year of Nintendo.  ::)

That's not what this is about though. Even though Nintendo's dominating the handheld market they are still getting killed by smartphone games/apps and what not. Plus they are on the verge of having a failed console if they can't get people to actually make games for it. If anything Nintendo's going to struggle until they can find a way to get developers to make Wii U games.

The WiiU has plenty of potential. I think the idea of WarioWare on WiiU is a good enough kick in the ass for the system's gimmick to sell itself. Also when did I try and say they're overwhelming the smartphone market? That was completely out of nowhere, lol. Fine, I'll stop having fun.

Nintendo CEO Seen Missing Profit Target as Wii U Founders

Iwata will announce a second straight annual loss tomorrow, losing 18.7 billion yen in the 12 months ended March 31, according to the average of 15 estimates compiled by Bloomberg. For the year started April 1, Nintendo may post operating income of 70 billion yen, according to the average of 19 estimates -- short of a target he said was a personal “commitment.”

Nintendo’s Wii U, its first new home-gaming console since 2006, is failing to meet sales targets amid a delay of software releases that Iwata said were crucial to winning over consumers who increasingly play games on smartphones and tablet computers. Sony Corp. (6758) and Microsoft Corp. are also preparing to release upgraded consoles this year, adding pressure on the 53-year-old executive, who’s been in the role since 2002.

“Iwata hasn’t produced good results in recent years,” said Hideki Yasuda, a Tokyo-based analyst at Ace Securities Co. “He can’t avoid being criticized.”

Yasuda rates the stock neutral, or hold. Only 4 of 20 analysts tracked by Bloomberg recommend buying Nintendo shares, while 13 recommend holding them and 3 recommend investors sell.

Yasuhiro Minagawa, a spokesman for Kyoto-based Nintendo, declined to comment on the difference between its commitment and analysts’ forecasts. The company will release earnings after the close of trade tomorrow.

What did they expect?  The Wii U is incredibly sub par compared to other consoles. 
It wasn't ready to be released.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Just No Point on April 23, 2013, 06:20:43 pm
I don't think it's sub par really. These companies just need to realize that people don't buy consoles for console sake (in most cases). They buy them for GAMES. Releasing new systems with no games is retarded and has ALWAYS backfired unless you just have some super game that everyone wants on launch. Best thing Nintendo had was an updated Mario Wii and that Zombie game. Then BIG DROUGHT.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: TRUEMicah on April 23, 2013, 06:29:18 pm
Yea, that's true.
If it were released along with a heavy hitter title like SSB, I'm sure the console would've been much more successful.
I still believe the console could've been better in terms of quality though.

if you bought the wii vc games you can still play them on the wiiu's wii menu (after transferring). if you want to play the wiiu vc games (which lets you use the gamepad) you have to buy the wiiu versions. if you already bought the vc games on the wii you get a discount if you want to buy the wiiu version. does that make sense

^^ PREPARE TO DIE!!

..if a horde of nintendo fans sees such a "blasphemy" .
I mentioned something similar on another forum a few days ago and got almost buried in angry replies about how nintendo games can't be on other platforms because they are so innovative and would not make fun on other consoles and it would be the death of nintendo etc.

Personally i would love to see Mario, Samus, StarFox, Kirby etc on just all available platforms. The move to not have a big conference at the E3 might be smart though. It seems like nintendo has only a handful of games to show but this handful will most likely be the games everyone wants to see for the wiiU (new smash bros, mario, zelda..1-2 surprises too) for that..a longer nintendo direct than usual and playable versions for the press on the E3 should be enough this year.

And this is compensating the loss of over 140M for Nintendo in the 2012 fiscal year..how?

Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Mgbenz on April 25, 2013, 10:39:30 pm
And this is bad how? They've shown that they don't need a bloated one and half hour presentation at a convention and instead use the monthly Nintendo Directs which have been shown to be successful at hyping up their releases.

Not showing things in E3 is not the end of the world for Nintendo.

And this is compensating the loss of over 140M for Nintendo in the 2012 fiscal year..how?

You have no idea do you? They have so much money in the bank it's ridiculous. They won't suddenly go bankrupt from a small loss like this especially when this loss is a first in Nintendo's history.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Makkah on April 25, 2013, 10:53:04 pm
Second, but the point still remains that Nintendo is FAR from bankrupt. As for ditching E3, I think it's a mistake since it will give them a lot more exposure than Nintendo Direct will, but we'll see what happens. I want the Wii U to do well, but they really need third party support to do well. That Mistwalker RPG looked nice, but I need a little more to convince me to get it as a second console.

But in all seriousness, this might not be the best idea.  After they bungled the WiiU launch by under-hyping it and putting out the console before any of the games were done, they may have wanted to put on a big "we're still good for it" show to regain a little consumer faith.  I'm not saying a weak launch is a death sentence;  Hell, the 3DS launch was even worse than the WiiU and that thing is selling gangbusters now.  It's just that Nintendo should probably try a little harder to boost people's confidence in them.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Jmorphman on April 25, 2013, 11:03:40 pm
Saying Nintendo should be put out of their misery now is basically the same thing as wanting to put a healthy 20-something out of their misery because they broke their leg. Or even sprained their ankle, really.

And no, Nintendo is not a horse. >:[

To continue my dumb metaphor, this E3 thing would be like this hypothetical young adult with a broken leg declining to go to this annual get-together because they've been throwing similar parties of their own, except they're smaller and happen more often. Or something.

I have a lot of ideas and a lot knowledge about Nintendo, Sony and even good old Mindscape ;) But what has that all to do with me pointing out that the good salesnumbers of the 3DS does not compensate their losses from the last year? Also nobody mentioned that Big N could go bancrupt beause of their current situation. I myself believe they will be in a better spot in 6-9 Months but also believe that their current Console does not have a big future.

No Nintendo at E3?

Well, they are still doing smaller booths, so they are still in attendance, just not in full force.

And give the WiiU some time. It takes a while for consoles to be profitable.

And you need to get more games on there, that is for certain...

NINTENDO CO., LTD. ANNOUNCES PROMOTION OF NOA CHAIRMAN TATSUMI KIMISHIMA TO NCL MANAGING DIRECTOR

Led Nintendo of America Since 2002

REDMOND, Wash., April 24, 2013 – Nintendo Co., Ltd. (NCL) today announced a planned promotion for Tatsumi Kimishima, current chairman and CEO of Nintendo of America (NOA) and a director of its parent Nintendo Co., Ltd. Subject to shareholder approval, he will become NCL managing director, and transfer from NOA in Redmond, Wash., to NCL headquarters in Kyoto, Japan. In his new position, he will assume the roles of general manager of Corporate Analysis and Administration, and general manager of the General Affairs Division. These titles are currently held by Yoshihiro Mori and Masaharu Matsumoto respectively, both of whom are retiring. Kimishima will assume his new duties in Kyoto later this summer.

Kimishima was named to his current position at NOA in 2006. He first joined Nintendo in Japan in 2000, and was subsequently named president of Pokémon USA in 2001, before moving on to become president of the Nintendo of America subsidiary in 2002. Previously, he spent 27 years at Sanwa Bank of Japan, with multiple postings in North America and Central America.

Many of his current responsibilities, including the CEO title, will be assumed by Global President Satoru Iwata. The move will support the company’s unified global strategy, allow streamlined decision making and enhance Nintendo's organizational agility in the current competitive environment. Reggie Fils-Aime will continue in his role as president and COO of NOA, reporting to Iwata.

Other changes announced to Nintendo’s global board of directors can be found at http://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/.

Seems that 15 games by Electronic Arts won't be released for the WiiU because they run on the Frostbite 3 Engine which does not run on the WiiU.

This includes:

Mass Effect 4, Dragon Age 3, Battlefield 4, Need For Speed 2013, Star Wars games in 2014. I guess the others are nextgen sports titles and Sims 4.

This was rumored on the same day as all the other announcements but I believe it still needs to be posted.

http://www.sonicstadium.org/2013/05/sumo-digital-hints-a-possible-mario-sonic-karting-game/

Basically the third game is hinted to be a Mario/Sonic crossover kart racer made by Sumo.

This personally hypes me more than Lost Worlds.

It reminds me of Sonic Xtreme. It's probably going to be a cool game considering the engine they're using and people who worked on colors and generations are most likely involved on this as well.

With that said, life's unfair, no new sonic games for me for a while I guess :( (Until the wii u gets emulated).

http://gematsu.com/2013/05/sonic-lost-world-offers-new-gameplay-structure
Quote
Sonic Lost World follows Sonic the Hedgehog as he chases longtime foe Dr. Eggman and comes across a mysterious floating island called “Lost Hex,” a new IGN preview reveals. There, he counters the “Deadly Six,” new foes who promise to add “a sense of danger and humor” to the Lost World story.

As depicted in today’s trailer, the game will offer a series of abstract levels that combine 3D and 2D mechanics. Players will twist, turn, and jump along floating constructs suspended in mid-air, and a new parkour-system will allow Sonic to accommodate basic obstacles while he’s running.

The development team’s biggest challenge in creating a new Sonic was maintaining the series’ key sense of speed while still finding the right controls. So now Sonic will walk when you move the analog stick, and won’t start running unless you press down one of the triggers. Hold down the second trigger and Sonic will roll into a ball at full momentum.

With this new structure, the development team hopes that players can navigate the game’s wide range of level designs, exploring and running as necessary. That said, levels are now tailored to different gameplay styles. Some will focus on slower speeds with more platforming, while others will focus on running as fast as possible.

Example: Desert Ruins 1 consists of cakes, cookies, donuts, and all manners of candy. But Desert Ruins 2 offers an entirely different theme and gameplay style: the ‘tunnel racing’ concept from previous games.

The Wii U GamePad is used to activate various Whisp-based “Color Powers,” which feature touch-based controls and are used largely to gain access to side paths and areas. A ‘Support Mode’ is also being developed, where one player uses the Wii U GamePad to assist a second player controlling Sonic with the Wiimote and Nunchuck.

Sonic is the only playable character in Lost World, though friends like Tails, Knuckles, and Amy will also make an appearance. Throughout the game, Sonic will save animals, which are tracked both by level and cumulatively, and factor’s into unlockable content. Red Star Rings can also be collected for unlockable content, and Gold Cannons will provide access to hidden paths.

Sonic Lost World is due out for Wii U and 3DS later this year. While details on the 3DS version are slim, we do know that it will make use of full 3D levels. But whether they’re smaller or completely different is unknown.

Quote
Nintendo is still thinking about a potential remake of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Speaking with IGN, series creator Shigeru Miyamoto said "they're still in my memory" of Zelda fans that have long clamored for an enhanced version of the Nintendo 64 classic.

Miyamoto and his team were considering giving the title a new lick of paint just last year. At that time, other ideas for portable Zelda releases included something entirely new and a follow-up to A Link in the Past. Obviously, we know what direction they decided to take, given the recent announcement of A Link Between Worlds. Still, with the forthcoming release of Wind Waker HD and increasing fan demand for a Majora's Mask remake, a return to Termina sounds like an inevitability.

Very good news for the Let's Play fan club. (http://wiiudaily.com/2013/06/nintendo-on-youtube-videos/)

Quote
Earlier this year we told you that Nintendo had filed copyright claims on several popular YouTube Let’s Play channels. Usually this means the content is taken down, but the style of copyright claim Nintendo filed allowed the content to be kept up, but showing ads that gave Nintendo revenue instead of the individual content creator.
This led to many YouTube personalities to state they didn’t plan on doing let’s plays of Nintendo’s games anymore, since there was no longer a monetary incentive to produce that content. It seems Nintendo now realizes the value of these streams as advertising tools, as some are reporting the return of their revenue stream.

I got a GameCube for RE4 and MGS:TTS. I played them, and I got rid of the Cube :S

Those are the only cases I can say without a doubt "Nintendo had the superior version". Here we were, buying new LCD screens 4/5 years ago to play WHATEVER COOL HD GAME WAS OUT THERE THOSE DAYS, and the Wii looked like absolute shit in lower resolution. It felt almost like an unnecessary upgrade to the Gamecube, but both were marginally better than the PS2 (which still had a better game library, mind you) and it just wasn't competing with the newer console titles in quality.

It's like all they care about is money these days, the cheapest way possible. Cheap, non-contemporary hardware, making the same games over and over again. They're the ones making the smallest technological leaps generation VS generation IMO

Nintendo as of late, in fact, for quite a while now, has been about first party only. Third party is not a good reason to buy a Nintendo console for this very reason. You have to be big on their first parties since that's usually the only games of substance released on their consoles, which, for me, isn't an awful thing considering I usually enjoy them to a substantial degree.

Only Japan-based users are affected, Nintendo claims

Hackers have managed to break into the Club Nintendo website more than 23,000 times in the past month, Nintendo has confirmed.

Full names, home addresses, phone numbers, and mail addresses were compromised. It was not initially specified whether all Club Nintendo users were affected, but a Nintendo representative has since told CVG: "this only affects the Japanese Club Nintendo and is not an international issue".

According to the Wii U manufacturer, the hacking began on June 9 and was detected one month later, on July 2. Nintendo's subsequent investigation found that there were 23,000 unauthorised log-ins from 15 million attempts between those dates.

Also from Wikipedia

Zelda Skyward Sword Sales
In Japan, roughly 195,000 copies were sold in its first week.This added up to a total first week sales of 919,119. According to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, Skyward Sword is the fastest selling title in the Legend of Zelda series.[104]

As of December 2011, the game has recorded 3.42 million units of sales worldwide.380,000 of these units were sold in Japan while 3.04 million units were sold overseas

Zelda Wind Waker
It sold 4.6 million copies worldwide

Zelda Ocarina of Time
7.6 million copies worldwide

Zelda ALTTP
A Link to the Past was a landmark title for Nintendo and is widely considered today to be one of the greatest video games of all time. A Link to the Past has sold over 4 million units world wide + later sales on virtual console

Means numbers of sales for the Zelda franchise are decreasing it seems. Nintendo never had such a competition than today, and now they even lost the "casual" bonus which made em sell so many wii consoles and games like wii fit, wii sports etc.

Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Titiln on July 06, 2013, 06:37:00 pm
you forgot twilight princess, released between wind waker and skyward sword, which sold 8.10 million and breaks the trend you're suggesting. if this VGCHARTZ LOL image is any indication there's no real trend here
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v103/Trunkswd/VGChartz/ZeldaGraph.png)
poor skyward sword sales could be chalked up to:
1: being released very late in the wii's life cycle, at which point "hardcore gamers" might have sold their wii in favor of something else
2: wii piracy being ridiculously easy at that point
3: required use of wiimote plus

Ubisoft: ZombiU not profitable, no sequel plans
"Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot has revealed ZombiU made no money, the Wii U launch title failing to become "even close" to profitable. Despite rumors and teasing, it now appears no sequel is on the cards for the foreseeable future.

The Ubi boss man went so far as to blame ZombiU's performance for the final decision tomake Rayman Legends multiplatform. The implication seems to be that the great-but-flawed survival horror game did so badly, Ubisoft has really cold feet about throwing exclusive support behind Nintendo's system.

In the same GI.biz article, Electronic Arts got some digs in at the Wii U too, stating, "The lack of online engagement that we see on Wii U [is troubling]. It's so integral to what we do. They're so small it's hardly worth running the servers. It seems like a box that's out of sync with the future of EA -- which is one that gives a real social feel to our games. The Wii U feels like an offline experience right now.""

as popular as the wii was, you could count the good third party games it had with two hands, and good third party exclusives with one. i think it'll be worse here. at least nintendo are trying to get non-nintendo exclusives here by publishing two platinum games and getting exclusive sonic games (lol)

Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on July 08, 2013, 06:57:19 pm
One of the few times i agree to 100% with you.

I think Nintendo should try to capitalize on their image as the "family friendly game company" They do that with their own games like Mario, Pokemon, Smash Bros etc. very well but instead of getting a ton of different developers and publishers together on a round table and dicuss with them what type of games could be super successful on their console, they try and try again to get games on their console which are not really fitting to their image.

The Resident Evil Remake and RE exclusives deals with Capcom for the Gamecube, and now games like ZombiU and  Bayonetta 2 will never reach the main Nintendo audience.

Nintendo does not really need ports of Mass Effect by EA  or Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (Namco) on their console, they need other original IP's which are fitting to the Nintendo image. That would be in the interest of the third party developers and publishers too of course.

Its clear already that Watchdogs on the WiiU will be the port of the game with the lowest number of sales, Ubisoft does themselves no real favour there.

"Hmm"

A couple days ago, Nintendo ruffled some tail feathers when it tried to ban Evo 2013, the world's largest fighting game tournament, from streaming its Super Smash Bros. Melee finals. This IP controlling move echoed Nintendo's earlier controversy over its ownership claims over Let's Plays featuring its games.

To be honest, I really hate Nintendo's constant updates on the street plaza. Just stick with one layout. I don't see why it needed to be changed other than to add new games.  And I hate the fact they added new games. I haven't even finished the other games yet to get the rest of the hats. Also I still have not gotten the pink pieces of the puzzles. I have no idea why they thought this would be a good idea, because some of us, if not all of us don't live near Nintendo World stores, or meet up for local events. It's harder for me to get these pieces, and now they go ahead and give me even new games and stuff while I'm still stuck on the current old theme games. Another bad  thing about getting blue puzzle pieces is it's not random at all. They intentionally drain more than 1/2 of your 300 3ds coins just to complete the blue piece set of a frame.

Seriously, Nintendo is trolling us.

But these new games don't appear to add new hats, so you could try them out and still be able to get all hats you may have missed.

The guy is asking for USD $30Million, assuming that Nintendo has made a buttload of money off of his patent. Federal judge Jed Rakoff thought this was excessive, because Nintendo isn't even really making that much money with the console sales + most if not all the games don't use the technology from the patent.

Right, because Link thrusting his sword down into Ganondorf's skull (http://zeldawiki.org/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_The_Wind_Waker) or stabbing Ganon in the throat until he spews blood pea soup (http://zeldawiki.org/The_Legend_of_Zelda:_Ocarina_of_Time) is totally not violent at all. And then there's Mario performing numerous acts of animal cruelty by stomping on turtles and skinning raccoon dogs alive so he could wear their furs, and lets not forget those times when Team Rocket mauled a Marowak to death, Mewtwo killed a whole bunch of scientists, and Pokemon decapitations galore. (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Guillotine_%28move%29)

Honestly, anything that happens in Smash is pretty tame by comparison, unless Nintendo considers 4th wall breaking faceplants violent as well. Or maybe people tripping all the time in Brawl was so violent that they had to remove it in Smash 4 :smug:

Don't forget the blood in the Bottom of the Well. It's still amazing how Ocarina of Time got an E-rating.

Seriously, Super Smash Bros. is the most tamest T-rated game you can find out there, when you consider that a lot of T-rated games on the market have blood, sexual themes, and characters saying the word "shit".
While I respect them for keeping their consoles "game systems" (as opposed to the entertainment systems we have now) and being innovative, Nintendo should've kept their mouths shut and let Melee be played at EVO.


Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Duos.act on August 19, 2013, 03:31:45 pm
I think the guy got his facts wrong.  I think what he was actually supposed to say was that Smash was being showcased alongside much more violent games like MK, Injustice, MVC3, SF4, etc and that the FGC themselves are not exactly a family friendly crowd and that they were going to expose children to all of that by having Melee on there.

Rated E for everyone huh.

Post by: Titiln on August 19, 2013, 04:45:38 pm
i like that a lot of people are seeing this as nintendo's real explanation for not wanting smash to be streamed and are ignoring that this is speculation from that guy that left the company in 2007. if nintendo didn't want mario or link to beat up women then they wouldn't fucking put women in the games.  if they didn't want their characters to be perceived as violent and nothing else then smash wouldn't exist. mc2's reasoning is probably much closer to why nintendo didn't want the game streamed on evo.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Killer Kong on August 20, 2013, 01:23:11 am
Are you sure it's not just their recent ToS prohibiting the distribution of IP via monetary gain? EVO HD costs money. Therefore, Nintendo's Legal Team did what was perceived as their job. The higher ups received word and let EVO stream Smash. Why the friggin hell else would this decision be recalled in that short of a timespan if the entire company banded and agreed on it? Oh, and Smash was at EVO before this year. It's not really hard to put together this conclusion.

Two bipedal Pokémon about to fight? Sounds kind of like a Pokémon fighting game to me and it and there are enough fighting type Pokémon for this game to exist.

NintendoLife.com said:
We already knew that, as it stands, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacies is the last of the popular series starring the tea-loving puzzle master. Perhaps not a surprise as sales dropped away in Japan, particularly, with each release, Level-5 has nevertheless been clear that the brand may well continue in some form. The publisher has now revealed Layton 7 at its Vision event, which is coming to 3DS, iOS and Android.

Very little is known from the basic reveal, beyond descriptions of it as the "latest entry in the Professor Layton series" and a "role-play puzzle" game". It's sporting a new 3D isometric viewpoint and a host of different characters, and it's not clear how the named character will feature, or whether it's simply branding in the Layton universe.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/08/28/nintendo-announces-2ds?utm_campaign=fbposts&utm_source=facebook


It's basically a 3DS, but without a 3D depth slider, marketed towards a younger audience. It also has no flip screen. (So you or your children can destroy the screen.)
Case included, case strap sold separately.
Best thing about it? It's 40 whole dollars cheaper than a normal 3DS.
The look's pretty retro. But the buttons are in the middle of the system and the shoulders are on the top screen. Talk about uncomfortable.

Nintendo 2DS? SERIOUSLY? They can't think of anything original? For that matter that could just go from Wii U, back to the Wii,

They'd have to go down to Wii T first </badjoke>

Why do I get the feeling that the 2DS has something to do with that 3DS patent case that they just recently lost?
if it got that bad then they wouldn't be able to sell any 3ds systems

Nintendo 2DS? SERIOUSLY? They can't think of anything original?
they've been doing portable console variations with slight changes ever since the original game boy. this isn't new.

I think it's smart marketing
They release a console that can play 3d  games without the 3d the same day Pokemon comes out.
That way, they don't alienate their older fans and allows kids who couldn't get the 3DS to play Pokémon and other popular 3DS games.

That 2DS thing is awesome!
The only bad thing about it is the case design, but since it is aimed at small children, I can see why they went with that.

The lack of 3D and 3D slider is a major plus for me. 3D movies and games cause me terrible headaches that can last days.
This thing allows me to own a 3DS without worrying about that dreadful slider and the having headaches out of nowhere.

Also, with that price range and with Pokemon coming along soon, I can see this being a major killer at the upcoming holiday sales.

Post by: DNZRX768 on August 29, 2013, 03:04:50 am
I think the reason why they got rid of the hinge design is because, since this is marketed at younger children, it needs to be build more solidly to withstand the amount of abuse that the little kids would put on the things they hold.

Seriously, they drop stuff all of the time. And the weak hinges was a common complaint for the 3DS...

It's all about letting your eyes get used to the effect. i used to get extremely woozy from 3d effects too but the 3DS actually helped me with it. I often play my 3ds with the 3d on now.

The sound took another hit because of the design making it only use one speaker in mono. The XL before it had dumbed down speakers to fit the larger screen (which I didn't know before I bough it so AAARRRRGHHGH).

No, no, no! D:
My headaches from these 3D things can last DAYS. I am not going through it for something that I can barely appreciate anyway.

Also, I am still sure that this thing will have killer sales this holiday session.
It is $50 cheaper than the normal DS, and Pokemon will cost $40.

I will instruct my stock adviser to buy Nintendo stock next week. That thing will print money and I want some for me. :P

The 2DS's dual screens is actually just one screen, by the way.
Cuts costs. So what happens if one "screen" breaks? The fact that the screens are constantly exposed doesn't help, considering how close they are from the surface...
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Killer Kong on August 30, 2013, 12:05:47 am
This thing is going to have screen protectors, and parents will more than likely buy them for their kid. Hell given its design it would not surprise me if screen protectors were bundled in! I don't care if they make the touch screen feel a smidge weirder, they are a must no matter what.  If one screen breaks nintendo has what we call a Customer Service area on both their website and probably their phone line as well. They also do repairs.

It will still sell a lot of units.

The 3D puts a strain on the eyes, that small children whose sight is still developing shouldn't be exposed to. This will get rid of that customer objection, and will sell more units at a cheaper price, in a very price sensitive market.

It's a win, no matter where you look at it.

My only problem with the 2DS is that it's aimed at younger gamers, but they didn't add screen protectors from what I can tell. For a target audience like that, you want it to be durable. The target audience isn't the gamer that buys his own stuff and has to pay for it himself if he breaks it. Younger gamers aren't really able to buy their own stuff and they're not as worried about it since they're not the one paying if it does break, and it's more likely to happen in this case.

My two cents.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Killer Kong on August 30, 2013, 07:54:06 am
Screen protectors should be bought so they aren't damaged. If they are pre-applied the warranty comes into play IIRC.

Nintendo just shot themselves in the foot.

I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.

What this means is the japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase a 3DS or 2DS, nor will they purchase any of Nintendo's Products. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Nintendo has alienated an entire market with this move.

What a shame because usually they're the ones that carry these kinds of titles. This game does it all right, from the use of the gamepad to how you unite morph using the right stick, if using the gamepad you can even see a well done map of the area and scroll through moves or other info. People probably played 10 minutes of the demo and threw up their hands in rage because they weren't auto comboing everything into oblivion or with style. Its all about learning, acquiring moves and using them where they work. That and most people only buy these things to play another Mario game or Zelda, yet complain when people stop working on your console to go where they just may make a few more bucks. Not gonna stop me from enjoying it and continuing to support Platinum games.

The Mario games don't need a real story anyway..same with Donkey Kong and Smash Bros.

If you like deep or at least long stories, there is always the big competition with lots of series with those.

What made me wonder about your first comment was the " Nintendo or any other company became great in the past few years with details and designs but, weak with storys for their games."

Because a ton of other companies tell deep stories with their games

there was a nintendo direct this morning about wii fit u and wii sports club! GET HYPE EVERYBODY

highlights:
- wii fit u is launching november 1 as a free download that expires a month after download. if you buy a fit meter (advanced pedometer, 20 USD) the game won't expire. a retail release is set for december 13
- the wii fit trainer was redesigned!!! she doesn't look like the one in smash brothers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

- wii sports club, releasing november 7, is an update to wii sports. the five original sports have been updated graphically and are now enhanced with wii motion plus and, shockingly, online play in the year of our lord 2013.
- you will have to download the games separately. each game costs 10 bucks. the first games released will be tennis and golf, with the other 3 releasing at a later point. that means the whole game is 50 dollars.
- or you can buy a day pass that lets you play all the games for 24 hours, which costs 2 bucks
- this is confusing, expensive and i kind of hate it. the wii fit u deal is nice, you can basically get the game and a pedometer for only 20 dollars, but this is the complete opposite.

Not really that spectacular but the new wii u software update is out and it allows you to play the wii games from the wii mode on your gamepad now. well some games works with the wii u pad, others just uses it as a tv screen and still need a wii mote for it. Luckily, the wii u pad has a sensor bar built in.

Quote
Nintendo's pushing out version 4.0 of its Wii U system software, and it's bringing a few unexpected -- yet welcome -- changes. Ironically, tweaks to how the hardware handles titles from The Big N's last home console headline the update. Folks taking Wii games for a spin will now be able to do so using just the GamePad's screen, and enjoy Dolby Pro Logic II surround output -- though you'll still need a Wii remote to play. Iwata and Co. have also rolled in an image sharing tool that mirrors the one on the 3DS, which lets gamers share screenshots on Facebook, Tumblr and Twitter. With the fresh code in tow, demos from Nintendo can be downloaded automatically and a variety of USB keyboards are supported, to boot. The box's internet browser also got some attention, as it's been bolstered with the ability to open PDF files and remember user login details for web sites. Check your Wii U for the update or click the source link for the full changelog.

Nintendo should allow more fighting games for their consoles. Capcom VS SNK 2 did really great back than for the Nintendo Gamecube. Same with Dragonball Games and Mortal Kombat. İt gives variation to Gamers. They need to do this for Wİİ U aswell really.

Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on October 09, 2013, 07:29:16 pm
Lol, when did Nintendo ever forbid a third party developer to release a fighting game on a Nintendo console? Even the Mk games were ported in uncensored forms after the Mortal Kombat 1 debacle back in 1992 when only the Sega port was uncensored.

The thing is that the fighting game companies moved to the PSX and the Saturn back in the mid-nineties and the N64 got already only a few fighting games anymore. After the handful SNK ports through Takara on the SNES there was nothing by them anymore while they developed for the 32 bitters and later the PS2 and XB. SF Alpha, Darkstalkers, Tekken, Mortal Kombat were big on the PS1 and when the 128 bit generation arrived, Nintendo got only around 10 fighting games at all for their Gamecube while the PS2 got the most fighting games ever released on one console and the XB had only like 5 exclusive fighting games and a few ports, especially by SNK.

Last/Current Gen, the fighting games were again on Nintendos competition, mostly because the technical differences, and now Nintendo has a system there with the WiiU which is as strong or a bit stronger than the PS3 and games like TTT2, Injustice could be ported but sell like shit because the console itself sells very bad so far.

Nintendo needs to make deals with fighting game developers if anything, so it would be safe for them to develope for the WiiU and not lose money.

Yup, that wondered me too, especially because Ono once mentioned in 2008 or 2009? that they try to port it to as many platforms as possible and the PS2 could get a port too.

It was also weird to see Tekken 6 and SC IV getting vita ports but nothing for the PS2 which was still the most installed platform and technically both games wouldn't be a problem on it

And to expand on that, fighting games are generally a niche market. Most third party games on Nintendo consoles are already a niche market due to the much larger general preference for first party games. Therefore, fighting games are not exactly market viable on Nintendo consoles in general.

Nintendo will never be ideal for FGs because of their inferior netcode and weird peripherals and the FGC will not settle for those.  Interestingly enough the Wii U version of Injustice is said to be the best looking and with the most stable frame rate.  At least until the PC one comes out lol.

If you haven't played Super Mario, then you are a below average creator (according to Inafune). (http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/08/our-favorite-mario-memories)
IGN article about various developers and their reflections of Super Mario.

Keiji Inafune said:
If any creator has not played Mario, then they’re probably not a good creator. That’s something I can say with 100 percent confidence. Mario is, for game creators, the development bible. There are so many hints about good design, about cute characters, about innovation in using an existing gameplay system. It’s something you have to constantly look at and examine and take hints from as a game creator. It’s the anchor that grounds almost all games. I have total respect for Miyamoto, to the point where… It’s very strange that there are national cultural treasures – they’re traditionally sportsmen. I think it’s very strange that somebody as famous as Miyamoto hasn’t been designated one of those people. He’s talked about in all different countries. Lots of people know him. He’s pushed forward Japanese culture and interest in Japan all over the world. He’s somebody that deserves everyone’s ultimate respect, and a lot of that is due to being able to create Mario. And Super Mario Bros. 3, of course, within that, was a fantastic game.

"Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut costs quite a bit more on Wii U"

"For a few months now, retailers such as Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop have listed pricing for Deus Ex: Human Revolution – Director’s Cut at $49.99 on Wii U and $29.99 on the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360. As it turns out, this is final.

Square Enix had been previously hesitant to officially reveal the game’s cost, but nothing has changed since retailers put up their original listings. We’ve confirmed with the publisher that the Wii U version will indeed set you back $50, but only $30 on other consoles.

Why the difference in pricing? Other than the fact that Deus Ex: Human Revolution has landed on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 previously, I can’t really think of anything. The experience will be more or less the same across all platforms. "

http://nintendoeverything.com/deus-ex-human-revolution-directors-cut-costs-quite-a-bit-more-on-wii-u/

In the same "old story" style of artwork as Wind Waker (or similar), we see the Imprisoning War again, likely still with OoT Link getting defeated but the Sages locking OoT beast Ganon anyway like the book Hyrule Historia says, and then we see another image of Link battling apparently pig-boar Ganon from LttP.
No in-game version of Ganon yet.

Doesn't really apply to the Skulltula family of course, unless you live in the realm of the most Salon-iest Salon article ever, of course.

Hmm, I dunno, to me it sounded pretty wishy-washy and/or a very oblique reference.
I don't know where it came from, but the article makes it sound like there was a rumor going around, and they specifically asked him about it, and Aonuma said "finish it and you'll see" which is usually the opposite of denial. I have no idea where that original rumor came from, or if there was any and why they even asked him about it if not, didn't know it was a thing.
I wouldn't mind if there was no connection to Majora's Mask and it was a random ass question for no reason which Aonuma just laughed off. I don't care for MM.

After he’s done answering questions, Aonuma adds: “Oh, one more thing. I see many of you have been asking about a remake of Majora’s Mask for Nintendo 3DS. It’s nice to see such a strong response to this title and we haven’t forgotten about Link’s adventures in that world.  If you play A Link Between Worlds, you may better understand what I mean by that. “

Uh. So there is something about MM. Sounds like just a random reference though, a callback or something "familiar".
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Ricepigeon on October 17, 2013, 07:10:15 pm
Hopefully just a reference because, if Link Between Worlds is a direct sequel to LttP, then that's going to cause a continuity error otherwise (LttP and Majora's Mask take place in two different timelines iirc).

Though that doesn't exclude the possibility of an alternate timeline Termina...
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Byakko on October 17, 2013, 07:32:30 pm
Yeah, that. Without talking about Termina, the fierce deity and Majora should both be lying around somewhere in that timeline as well. Not that I think they'll be actuallypart of the story or even a bonus stage or something, but it's not impossible that it shows up somewhere as something that's just lying around.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Tyrant Belial on October 17, 2013, 07:34:27 pm
Termina exists in both time lines, just in one Link didn't save it and it blew up.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Byakko on October 17, 2013, 07:38:25 pm
Well, in two timelines actually (the "adult Link came back after 7 years and defeated Ganon" timeline and the LttP timeline where OoT Link never defeated Ganon ; it was only saved in the timeline where child Link, who came back in time, put Ganon away before everything, and then visited Termina)
But you're right, the moon destroyed it in these two timelines... So yeah, it's probably going to be some area that's been destroyed long ago and stayed uninhabited since forever because of some mad god, or something along those lines, whatever they want to do with it.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Jmorphman on October 17, 2013, 07:46:28 pm
Hmm, well, isn't it possible that in the other timelines Skull Kid never found the mask and caused all that nonsense?

Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Tyrant Belial on October 17, 2013, 08:00:05 pm
No, that would result in it's own timeline since Skull Kid findi9ng it is independant of what Link does in OoT. so we'd have 2 more.

Considering that Majora's Mask follows the child timeline (that Link more or less created a huge time paradox after coming back from the future), its possible that the mask salesman fled to Termina after Hyrule market was taken over by the redeads in the Adult/WW timeline.

Still doesn't account for his possible appearance in the death/LttP timeline though, iirc, in Majora's Mask its implied that he's able to freely travel between Hyrule and Termina at will. Wether Skull Kid meets him in the LttP timeline or not is still a question mark, but I'm convinced that he does in the Adult/WW timeline.

İ agree with that. 3D has wheird results sometimes. İ am not saying bad but wheird insteed. 2D has easy layering options too. İ remember most Games in the year 2000 wich were basicly 2D but with 3D elements. Characters were designed from each side and felt 3D because of their movements. İ think most 3DS Games needs this. Not firstly 3D and than 2D. They should make it 2D first and than add some 3D elements really.

İ was commenting about Nintendo's ways of making Games and selling strategy.

We only hear company's talking about "we work on this and we work on that."

They keep their motivation high but, get unmotivated when sellings are low in reality.

My comment was for your line: "the game was already not coming to the wii u and it was for technical reasons."

Before they want good Games and good sellings, they should first fix their technical errors for their consoles really.

I should have been more specific. I was hoping Nintendo direct would eventually announce a great number of Wii U titles so they can prove that developers give even a little bit of a fuck about their system. Right now it seems like there's a drought of Wii U titles for the next several months.

I'm not talking about 3DS though they seem to have that under control and it seems to have a lot of cool things in store for it.

There will be 5-11 of them in 2014

Very sure:
Donkey Kong

Mario Kart
Mario Party
2-3 WiiU Fit/Play/Sports/Music whatever games
Bayonetta 2

+ 2-4 unannounced sequels + Zelda Twilight Princess HD, Mario Sunshine HD

Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on November 13, 2013, 08:10:34 pm
They are a pure speculation by me, made because Zelda WW HD and i think Nintendo mentioned it that they are interested in more GC HD ports, a follow up to Zelda WW next year in August or September while they still work on a big new Zelda for 2015 would make sense i think

So Rosalina being the 5th character is bad because their not in space even though there are levels that take place in space? that's some terrible logic.

From the comments said:
"There's no defining moment, no memorable villains or characters"

You're looking for the right things... in the wrong game.
That's main game Zelda stuffs.
As a man who's never played a Zelda game in his life, is this true? One shouldn't expect those things from a LOZ? It sounds a bit sad
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Byakko on November 14, 2013, 09:59:23 pm
Uh. The last line sounds like he's thinking this game is like the "smaller" Zelda games, those that are more filler / time-spending games, like the Oracle games and such. What he's saying isn't that Zelda games don't have that, he's saying that there are two kinds of Zelda games : the "main" ones, and the "small" ones I guess, and the small ones don't have those things he quotes.
Long version, that particular point he's relying on is very heavily debatable. You could say that games like the Oracle ones, Link's Awakening, Majora's Mask, are not part of the "main" games because they're not central to the main storyline of Zelda games (the Triforce and Ganon), but even if you made that claim, those "small" games still had a lot of impact. Link's Awakening and Majora's Mask have a gigantic fanbase. ... Not the Oracle games though.
Short version, no, it's not what you should expect in a Zelda game. Like hell, of course not. Many big characters and a bunch of memorable moments.
And then he's also likely to be wrong in labeling ALBW as one of the "smaller" games and that it wouldn't have memorable characters and defining moment. They just came up with Lorule, and entire alternate version of Hyrule, that's brand new in the franchise (we only had the Dark World / Light World before).
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Sookoll on November 14, 2013, 10:23:59 pm
Don't expect it to be brought up in any future game, just like the Minish World.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Byakko on November 14, 2013, 10:27:36 pm
Well sure, but it doesn't make it any less memorable. They didn't pull something that big and new in a long time. The Dark World was big in LttP and everyone expected it to come back, but they switched it for something else.

Post by: Snakebyte on November 16, 2013, 01:08:10 pm
I can pretty much guarantee it won't be. It's nothing to do with Xenoblade. It looks a lot more like a sequel/re-imagining of Xenogears, though how they're managing this without the rights to it I have no idea.

Excuse me if this sounds stupid, but I don't get it..........
All I see are Diddy Kong in the back of Donkey Kong, then Dixie Kong and Cranky Kong. Unless whatever that is there is something behind Diddy Kong, looks like some sort of regular background enemy. But it seems a bit obscured by Diddy Kong.
Besides that, just the viking ships below the Kongs, on on top of the water.

I didn't see the original cover, I was looking for the boy/kid Stanley because I was a bit confused from Titiln's post. So I'm taking it the 4th one is Cranky Kong.

Sure feels like it.  I've been sick since Thanksgiving. 
It let up just enough that I felt ok when wifey and I took GLB to Raw in Dallas for his birthday, but then it started up again.  I don't know if it's the same cold or a new one, but the symptoms are the same. 

I wanted to release something before the end of the year, but it's looking like that's not gonna happen.  Partially because working too many hours (56 a week), partially because being sick, partially because Wii U. 

Just so easy to be snuggled up in bed sick while playing that off-TV Wonderful 101 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ced1rkyI2lc).   :smartass2:

Seven games are on the shedule for the wiiU in 2014 with confirmed releasedates so far.

There will be also Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2 and X and maybe Watch Dogs if that one won't be cancelled.

If there won't be a wave of surprises, this year might be something very dry for wiiU only gamers.

hyrule warriors and yarn yoshi are also 2014 games. not a lot of worthwhile games, but it seems miles better than 2013. i doubt a noticeable rise in sales would bring third parties back into it. the wii often outsold the 360 and ps3 and yet i can't think of 5 worthwhile third party games for it. they're in that same spot here (except with horrible sales), most devs probably won't bother to downgrade their games for a wii u release. it's going to be another nintendo games machine and i'm fine with that.

I keep telling you guys, X is confirmed for 2014. I'm assuming late 2014, with more details coming at E3, but it was confirmed for a 2014 worldwide release in last summer's Nintendo Direct.

Titiln: Muramasa the Demon Blade, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Sonic Colors. And some of those might be second party, and that's literally all I can think of. I feel like there were more that were eventually available on other platforms, like Dead Space Extraction, but they're not really coming to mind.

i don't count second party. no more heroes was alright. the trauma center games were good. epic mickey was trash. at the end of the day it's still not a lot of worthwhile third party games considering how much the console sold

Nintendo slashes Wii U sales forecast from 9m to 2.8m

Nintendo has cut dramatically the number of Wii U and 3DS consoles it expects to sell by the end of the financial year.

Wii U's estimated sales are down from 9 million to 2.8m, while 3DS is down from 18m to 13.5m.

The company now expects another full year loss.

Net income for the year had been pegged at a profit of 55 billion yen (£322m), but is now expected to be a net loss of 25 billion yen (£146m).

The launch of Wii U hardware bundles and key games such as Super Mario 3D World helped the struggling platform a little, but the console still fell short of Nintendo's recovery plans "by a large margin".

These Dark Samus jokes would be better if they were over-abusing her presence in Metroid games or she was intentionally out of place to get attention, like Tingle in Zelda games.

She was just around for Prime, made for a couple awesome boss battles, made a nice story for the Prime trilogy, forced you to kill your friends near the end, then got killed herself in dramatic fashion.  Pretty cool looking villain too (http://static1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20130406130409/metroid/images/7/7d/Mprime2_DarkSamus.jpg), for whatever that counts.  I don't get what's so bad about her.

Anyways, if they're looking to branch out to phones and such, but don't wish to use their mainstream titles everyone knows them for to keep actual console sales up, does that mean they're looking to use some older titles that haven't seen any news in a long time?  Or just coming up with new franchises, hoping they stick? (Or pushing them until they do)

pachter keeps saying unbelievably stupid shit about nintendo. no link because i don't want to give anyone hits because of it
Quote
So what's the solution for Nintendo? In Pachter's opinion, the company must swallow its pride and start publishing its first-rate software on competing platforms. Then, once Nintendo is ready to bring a more competitive console to the market, it can withdraw its support from the other systems and focus on its own platform again.
if things go completely sour for nintendo (console and portable turning into absolute failures) i could see them going third party. going third party and THEN reverting would be suicide

they should release a wii u without the gamepad imo. it would make the console much more affordable and most games don't even use it in crucial fashion. i mean, from the games i have:

nintendoland: the entire game was built around the gamepad so it wouldn't really work without it
new super mario bros u: a player can use it to draw platforms. there's a challenge mode built around that. otherwise it's not needed.
pikmin 3: better played with wiimote and nunchuck. gamepad can be used as a map and to order your characters around. this could be put into a paused menu so it's not really needed here either.
the wonderful 101: drawing the shapes is much quicker with one of the sticks than on the touchscreen. some parts have you moving inside the gamepad while other things happen outside. other than a couple parts in the game, it's not needed.
wind waker hd: gamepad is very convenient for map stuff and swapping items, but this could also be done on a pause needed. it's not crucial to the game.
mario 3d world: a couple stages have "touch here to create platform" or "blow into controller to make wind thing trigger". otherwise it's not needed

the next games that are going to save the console, kart and smash, don't seem to make particularly interesting use of it either. neither is donkey kong country tropical frozen throne but that's not really a console saving game

I think you can even have that show up on your TV anyways, making parts like that even more trivial. I'm sure Bayonetta 2 may do something like it, but no way in hell it utilizes the tablet in any crucial function as well.

I'm so broken on the Wii U because I have come to love it. I can switch between my many wonderful Wii games, throw them on a small screen if I like and play'em in bed. The exclusive games it has vary between genres and overall play and look great. I do what I can though and unlike others try to buy the games new rather then used(why wouldn't I though?

yeah but some parts need you to look at both screens (but then again i think it shows the other screen on the same screen like a picture in picture deal, i forgot). i like the gamepad, it's way more comfortable than it looks, it can make some things way more convenient, off-screen play is cool, it has potential for cool shit, but i don't think it's completely required for most games. make it optional.

You can't use the actual controls on the gamepad itself, but project the Wii games to it like a mini TV. I usually just slap a pro controller on the Wiimote and play it as usual. Not like I was ever a fan of the motion control stuff either. I wish Madworld had normal controller support.

Once Mr. Miyamoto retires of age in the next 10 - 15 years, I won't expect much from Nintendo anyway. Everyone else is either President or in charge marketing. So if Nintendo continues to drop down, I wouldn't be surprised. People would probably just move on.

Nice list and all..but while Nintendo's strongest games are still their Party games, Mario, Zelda and maybe Smash Bros their competition does not only come up with new games /game seires and characters..they also are able to make these so known /good/ sucessful that people are not waiting for sequels of their first big series anymore but also look forward to their next new games and sequels of their newer series. (Okay Microsoft still sticks mostly to Halo and Forza it seems)

If Sony would be like Nintendo, they would still release new Crash Bandicoot and Spyro games every 1-2 years including a lot spinoffs.

Instead they come up with new big IP's which stay big IP's for at least a good couple of years until they are getting replaces mostly with other successful IP's.

Examples alone from the platformer genre would be Crash and Spyro, both sold during 2000 but both were relative successful series when Koanmi /Activision made sequels/reboots.

Later there were Jak and Daxter, Sly Racoon and Ratchet n Clank. All three got their trilogys and more games till today. On the PS3 they came up with LittleBigPlanet and a few small IP's like Puppeteer.

That are 6 big series always with something fresh and unique while we have still Mario..Mario Mario..and ocassionally Donkey Kong or a Princess Peach game.

They make nice new games and game series, but none of them seems to be able to replace Mario for a while..in the end its again the plumber and the elf in the green costume who "rescues" Nintendo if they were not able to attract a new market like the "casual" gamers years ago

...DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM ED!
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Titiln on January 19, 2014, 06:16:35 pm
the list is mostly to show that "nintendo never tries new ideas or characters" is horseshit. they do take risks. some are smaller risks, some are larger risks. the wonderful 101 probably had a relatively big budget, it bombed, bayonetta 2 is also a risk. the wii u itself was a huge risk when they could've just made an updated wii with hd graphics without the gamepad, making the console cheaper overall. at the end of the day it's their better known franchises that sell the most. what do you expect them to do if that's how the market behaves? sequels for good games sell. don't act like sony never do sequels either. going by recent releases they're still milking gran turismo, god of war, killzone, ratchet & clank. their newest twisted metal wasn't that long ago. this isn't a bad thing, if the games are still good who cares.

Mario and Zelda are pop culture icons... even if Nintendo tried new things, (unless it has the breakaway success of Pokemon) people won't really notice at first glance.

Their distribution plan needs reworking, not the IPs they utilize.

Are you trying to be stupid today or did you really not get my point?

Which was that Nintendo needs to try to make new series something big. Nothing is wrong about sequels and HD remakes/collections if they are good. What Nintendo is missing is a big varity of game genres AND making their new games and IP's so good and successful that the gaming audience isnt just seeing them as the Mario,Zelda,Wii Party Games and Pokemon guys.

That and they need a really BIG  third party support more than anything else.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Killer Kong on January 19, 2014, 07:41:38 pm
Honestly people ask for new IPs and when they happen, guess what? They do lukewarm. Wonderful 101, etc. and then people wonder "Why are they not trying anything new?!" Sales speak over anything else. If you support new IPs, buy games for a system that involve new IPs, whether they are Nintendo-original or not, it's still on their system. I don't think any smart company would bank on these "new" IPs if the numbers aren't gonna roll in.

Super Smash Bros has characters with all of their best excisting games from back in the days till now. The crossover shows what Nintendo has and gave to it's players all those years. What another option is, is that Nintendo can license more Manga and Anime series and make games for it. It's like Capcom did back in the days. That could work out there.

Um, rereleasing older titles is 'exploiting' now?

I'm really grateful for HD collections. I want to play those old games on my new shiny TV. Trophies, too, are a good excuse to replay and enjoy them. I've bought, I don't know, at least six of them? It's one of the big selling points of the console for me?

I'd much rather games be updated and ported than lost to time, especially as the technology gap between generations keeps getting smaller.

none of what you post makes any fucking sense. stop

They had a lot awesome new games to review
january is usually a dead month across all systems. developers focus releases on november/december for the holidays. you should know this by now.

Um, rereleasing older titles is 'exploiting' now?
yes, that's exploiting (make full use of and derive benefit from). it's not necessarily a bad thing, especially if the games are good, but implying that nintendo exploit their franchises too much while sony doesn't is ridiculous. the only reason sony doesn't exploit anything to the level nintendo exploits mario (aka a shitload of spinoffs) is simply because they don't have a mario. they don't have a franchise at that level. you'd have to be crazy to think that if sony had bigger names like mario and zelda they'd just sit on the franchises and do nothing with them since they're the super kings of creativity (http://i.imgur.com/mPD6hrN.jpg) and they never release too many of a thing. it's not like they released three installments of the same franchise on the same system (http://i.imgur.com/z9ZpJT9.jpg). that would be some nintendo shit.

it also explains why they're likelier to try a new ip instead of going back to an established one - they don't really have many established ips. just look at the roster for playstation all stars battle royale. when they manage to score a successful ip, don't pretend they don't milk it. ratchet & clank started in 2002 and already has 11 games. god of war started in 2005 and already has 7 games. 2007's uncharted already has 4 games. gran turismo has 6 games, not counting smaller concept releases. for comparison, mario kart (which started 5 years before gran turismo) has 7 games with the 8th one releasing soon. don't pretend sony are so much better in this aspect

as long as the sequels are good, who gives a shit

Sony frequently releases three installments of a franchise on the same system.

Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Jak, Sly Cooper, Ratchet & Clank, Ratchet & Clank Future (we're at like, 6 now?), Infamous (well, 2.5), Uncharted, Resistance...

God of War is a rarity in its longer-than-usual development cycle, and I have no idea how Killzone works.

Three installments of a franchise on a system is actually pretty typical. It's how Final Fantasy has always worked and they have the most bloated development cycles ever. These days we're more likely to see 2.5, with digital distribution being what it is. I mean, Assassin's Creed's up to 6 now. 3 ain't bad.

But, no, the main reason Sony doesn't function that way is because they don't really have A Studio the way Nintendo does. They're a lot more second-party and about letting other people make exclusive work for their system, then sending them off into the world later on. Most big Sony studios and successes go third-party sooner or later, and Sony's biggest strength is incubating really strong second-party content.

I'm honestly not really sure if I'm arguing with you at this point, I just like the way they handle things most of the time and think it's how everyone else should do it. Insomniac is the only studio I know of that really lost their way under Sony, and that took a while.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Cazaki on January 21, 2014, 04:30:44 pm
I think with Killzone it'll get an installment close to launch then one towards the end of the console life cycle so I don't know if it counts.

Post by: Titiln on January 21, 2014, 04:52:13 pm
i was mostly going against the idea pushed by gbk and others that nintendo abuses their ips too much as if the others didn't. i don't even think too many of a franchise in the same console cycle is a bad thing as long as the games are good.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Omega on January 21, 2014, 07:56:51 pm
Yeah good games but, what good games? Same titles with newer stories to keep their characters in the scene. That's what happens all the time there. I also agree with Sony not having it's own studio like Nintendo. They should license more different games that are not just theirs and work more with Sony.

I love the gamecube. Just seemed like overall less blockbuster (at the time) titles were on it though in comparison to PS2. I also remember it being lacking in things such as Madden games which was a big draw for the people around me so no one got it.

EDIT: Now that I think about it though I think GTA was Gamecube's doom more than anything else.

Nintendo HAS started getting into the second-party game, and I'm very happy for it. Mistwalker, Monolith, and at least partially Platinum are all making stuff for them. I don't know if there are any others and they only appear to be doing it with Japanese studios, but still, a step in the right direction.

You, being a faithful Nintendo consumer (from what I understand), what is your opinion on this matter?

Reading that article makes me realize they have a clear vision of what they want to offer, AND IT'S A GOOD ONE AT THAT! But apparently what they want to offer doesn't go hand in hand with what the general public wants.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Titiln on January 22, 2014, 07:11:36 pm
here are my thoughts on nintendo's current situation

on third party support: ever since the gamecube i know better than to expect a lot of great third party games on nintendo's home consoles. the wii also failed on that aspect for the most part. i know by now that i basically need two consoles: the nintendo console because i love nintendo games, and a microsoft or sony console because i know the nintendo one will miss out on great third party games no matter what. i know i'm not gonna play metal gear on a nintendo console anytime soon. of course i'd like it better if the nintendo console had all the great third party games but it's not happening, especially considering the wii u is underpowered compared to the xbox one and ps4 and most devs won't bother making downgraded versions of their titles. they didn't bother for the wii (which often outsold the 360 and ps3), they're sure as fuck not going to bother now.

on the wii u: recovery is looking difficult. the "we're going for a relatively weaker console, but with a great new revolutionary controller" approach didn't pay off this time. like the article said, they've failed to make lots of titles that make significant, otherwise impossible gameplay. i still think a much cheaper mario kart bundle without the gamepad (the game's not going to make significant use of it as far as i can tell) would be attractive to people. i really don't think the wii u is going to make a significant recovery like the 3ds. the 3ds barely had any competition. the wii u has the ps4 and xbox one. the best the wii u can hope for at this point is gamecube numbers.

on significant distribution changes/taking cues from the mobile market: does nintendo need to change their plans? yes absolutely, their current one isn't exactly working out. the virtual console, for me at least, isn't attractive in the least. there's so much potential there. they have years of awesome first games and they're just sitting on them, slowly trickling them out. the only vc game i've ever downloaded is mario kart 64 on the wii. there aren't many games and they're kind of expensive. i'd rather spend that much money on a new game. i wouldn't hate it if they took some good cues from mobile gaming, like offering cheaper titles or free to play ones. i'm just really concerned future releases (on all systems, not just nintendo) become infested with shitty microtransactions (i'm looking at forza 5). i really hope consoles and gaming in general don't go that way, but it seems to be inevitable.

on nintendo going third party: they have a relatively successful portable, they have money. it's not happening anytime soon. nobody should even consider that situation until they somehow end up with both portable and home console bombing completely.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Bastard Mami on January 22, 2014, 07:24:46 pm
Nintendo is likely to become a third party, for android/ios. I think they want to make their android/ios games ina  way that instead of microtransactions they make you buy the DS/wiiu games.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Titiln on January 22, 2014, 07:29:10 pm

Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Xanden on January 24, 2014, 01:16:15 am
I think Nintendo would be hesitant on releasing a title (even if a downgraded version of a portable or WiiU game) on mobile, because that means the end of Nintendo as a Hardware company. Also, of they made a mobile game, people wouldn't trust their next console, and just wait for them to die and become a hardware company.

Mobile is sort of a problem for Nintendo anyways, as Nintendo has always been aimed for kids. But now? Kids are playing on there phones or PCs, devices they already have, because why pay money to play games when you could play games on something they have now?

And, in all honesty, I'd cry a little knowing some kid's first memory of Mario was a mobile game.

There will be also Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Bayonetta 2 and X and maybe Watch Dogs if that one won't be cancelled.

If there won't be a wave of surprises, this year might be something very dry for wiiU only gamers.

There's also
the article said:
Wiitalia tried to contact some GameStop store, and in each case the conclusion was one and just one: Wii U version of Watch Dogs is not available for preorder because Ubisoft cancelled it.
So the actual source is the site itself. It's pretty easy to verify - a simple call to the store.

I myself was in the city earlier today and asked the local gamestop (north germany) (just 2km away from here) how it is with the wiiU version.

Same as in italy, he does not take pre orders for the wiiU version anymore but also said that this does not mean that the wiiU is really cancelled


There are also reports by people that american and canadian gamestops are still taking preorders and list the wiiU version as well as amazon

The game is also still listed at the ubisoft website as well.

Maybe its just a confusion because a mistake send to or by some european gamestop office guys?

Clearly Eurogamer knows what's best for Nintendo. :sadgoi:

Nintendo is facing pretty much what nearly every Publisher goes through; old Japanese guys aren't very good at gauging today's younger, international market. Not helped by the fact that the Japanese are pretty set in their ways in doing business. Too hard to find new blood to allow these companies to flourish the way their capable of... is it any wonder why (people believe) the west has overtaken them?

It's not that big a deal though. This makes it sound like Nintendo is in do-or-die more, which they're not. To imply that removing Miyamoto (and not doing anything else in the process) would result the end of Nintendo's problems is foolish.

It's a matter of time before they figure it out (hopefully)
sony and microsoft are also figuring out their "here's a controller with its own screen" thing, but the difference is that the vita and the surface tablet aren't bundled with their respective consoles (although i do hear rumors of a ps4 and vita bundle, but since it would be a separate bundle it would be very much optional) and adding into the price of the package. they're optional and you can hop in whenever you're interested. whenever that awesome use  comes along.

nintendo's approach with the wii was to bundle the weird controller with the console, but the difference is that wii sports was an amazing showcase of its potential and it caught on like a mother fucker. it's safe to say at this point that such game for the wii u doesn't exist. as long as it doesn't exist, there's little reason to include the gamepad. their upcoming games don't make good use of it. make it optional, let people buy it when there's a good reason to.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Just No Point on January 29, 2014, 06:01:40 pm
As long as they continue to make products that still make use of the pad. Most 3rd parties probably won't. But having the inventories and maps on the gamepad in Wind Waker HD made the game much more enjoyable.

I can't guarantee I'd have bought the system with the gamepad though if I would have had a cheaper option. It's pretty annoying that their new games won't have any practical use for it. But really what all could you put on the screen for Donkey Kong. Mario Kart could have the map and/or the mirror. The change in WiiU options are needed but it kinda sucks for everyone that already invested in the gamepad.


They should put a DS player on the system. Using the controller as a bottom touch screen. That's like the most I could see getting out of it =/

The problem with VC and PS Classics is that they don't exploit the graphical power of the consoles that run them and just run in their native resolutions. They can always do what PC emulators do to enhance the graphics.

Nintendo DS Titles Coming To Wii U Virtual Console (http://www.siliconera.com/2014/01/29/nintendo-ds-titles-coming-wii-u-virtual-console/)
Quote
At some point in the future, you will be able to play Nintendo DS games on the Wii U.

In order to increase the usefulness of the Wii U GamePad, Nintendo will be bringing Nintendo DS titles to the Wii U Virtual Console in the future, the company announced today, during a financial results briefing.

Nintendo stated they needed to overcome a technical hurdle before this was a possibility.

All i need is The World Ends With You.

Hopefully there'll be some graphical upscaling involved because original DS games are not going to look pretty on a big screen.

EDIT: some people are saying the game might not be listed because it doesn't have a set release date but that's irrelevant since amazing spiderman 2 doesn't have a specific date either, yet it's listed.

lol ubisoft. Why is the idea so hard for them to understand that building a fanbase and delivering amazing ports or games to a console will get you money? Watch Dogs on the Wii U would of been one of the better versions with the tablet interface and most likely won't have that drastic of a change in visuals even on XB1 and PS4.

of course if this is true and not another mixup.

EXACTLY. It's kinda like what happened with Deus Ex Human Revolution. The Director's Cut version on the Wii U is the better game out of all the existing versions.

Not to mention the Wii U isn't exactly a SUPER INFERIOR console. It's already better looking than the previous gen. There's already such a large amassed know-how to make games with those limitations in mind, that Developers should be able to make good games at a reasonable cost for it.

Kinda like the 3DS having great games with the old refined technology of the PS2 era. Texture tricks, optimized models for low performance impact. Those are good games that shouldn't be too expensive to make. The same for the Wii U. Whoever isn't ready to spend JAGILLIONS OF DOLLARS in developing for the newer machines, could stay back in the Wii U. Like Atlus for example.

You know , it's funny how hanging out in some anime forums there are discussion about resolution ( 720p, 1080p, 4k) , screen size and viewing distance and how at a certain distance there is no difference in watching a 720 video or a 1080p one, yet I have not seen anything like that regarding videogames in any of the videogame forums I frequent. basically if your screen is not big enough or you are not close enough, the visual will be pretty much the same.

There's more to it than that though. Since the Wii U is relatively "weak", it'll have lower res textures, and  a less stable framerate. Having played a few PS4 games, the stable framerate and razor sharp textures definitely stand out, regardless of how far away you sit. It takes a bit more scrutiny to discern the difference between Xbone and PS4 games, though.

I'm pretty sure Nintendo had Four Swords available for Free for 1-2 months before some year(s) ago. I should know this because I remember downloading ti on most of my handheld systems. So why would they keep doing this? For people who have not yet had a DS/3DS before now, are now giving it to those who NOW own a system?

this has never happened in any other game in any other system, as far as i know. the amount of people that bought the season pass (let alone the game) must've been so low that they decided it was more profitable to make refunds and not port the dlc at all.

Alright, let me say this in a friendly manner. I never replied to a Batman article since i wasn't interested in doing so. I was trying to say that they are getting worse with the WII U.

Last month, reports began circling of GameStop stores in Italy and the U.S. canceling pre-orders for Watch Dogs on Wii U. Ubisoft confirmed with Polygon at the time that the Wii U version had not been canceled, but Nintendo's third quarter financial report published on Jan. 30 did not list Watch Dogs as a Wii U title coming this fiscal year. Ubisoft again confirmed that the game was slated to launch in the first quarter of Ubisoft and Nintendo's fiscal year 2014-2015, which begins in April.

I'm not familiar with it either but, their website seems indeed a bit off looking. Ubisoft has many great titles so i wonder why they are making so much deal with Watch Dogs again. Afterall, it's a good thing that there will be a WII U version but, just look at how many articles they have about it coming and not coming all the time. It was also said that Ubisoft’s abandonment of the main trademark could possibly mean that they are planning to change the name of the game.

All in all a damn lackluster Nintendi Direct. Their decision to bring gba games to the wiiU but not the 3DS sounds really bad to me.

Little Mac is a nice new character for Smash, Mario Kart 8 looks cool but not that much more fun than Sonic + Sega Allstars Transformed.

Do you have an Ambassador 3DS? If you did, you'd know why Nintendo is hesitant to release GBA VC games on the 3DS.

The GBA VC games were given to only early adopters of the 3DS when it was at full price, they don't want to spit in their face I assume but thats stupid considering how long they have had it and that having them on the library to pick from wouldn't hurt.

Post by: Titiln on February 14, 2014, 01:19:45 am
they could also add games not part of the ambassador program. the gba had more than 10 games.

     Posted: February 14, 2014, 01:59:45 am
that said it's not exactly news that the way the vc has been handled has been a massive waste of potential and there's no sign of this changing at all. games are few, released sluggishly and too expensive. cross-buy should also be a thing at this point

The people that bought the first 3DS batch are a small minority of the current userbase.

And they have had it for so long those games must be gathering virtual dust.

And Nintendo would probably charge more or less the same for the 10 individual games as the cost gap between pre-price cut 3DS and post price.

Yeah not like Punch-Out is a long standing Nintendo name from the NES days or anything.

Not like Punch Out on the Wii was a good seller and popular and relevant enough to represent in this game.

His design including bright green gloves and trunks and super short statue and being able to turn into the motherfucking Hulk make him look out of place.

Super Smash has more small childish looking characters. Yes, it is a smash game and adding them isn't a problem. Not counting chars like Samus and Link. little Mac fits with them, it's my comment man. I am not saying this for Mewtwo or whatever. Do i have to like it for you? What the heck is your damn problem. The concept and design looks more realistic than any other in there. I don't say it's bad, it just looks way to realistic compared to all others.

Capt. Falcon and Solid Snake.

And Link, and Zelda, and Ganondorf, and Marth, and Pit, and Roy, and...

Go on and make a big deal of everything as usual. I was judging by his design. My comment was:

He doesn't look out of place, he looks similar to everyone else that we listed. Look at what you're saying, you say "he looks out of place if you don't count [long list of all the characters that have a 'realistic' design similar to him]". Obviously anyone is going to look out of place if you don't count all the others that look like him. This goes against logic.
You're trying to compare him to the likes of Mario, Villager, or Pikachu. Of course you're going to find that he looks different, but to begin with you're not supposed to do that. Compare him to those that look like him instead. You'll see that it's nonsense to say he looks out of place.

I think Little Mac looks totally awesome.

i don't think he can't have his opinion, but his is fundamentally flawed. if gbk thinks mario kart 8 doesn't look as fun as sega all stars transformers, that's just his opinion, and i can disagree or agree with it but that's not gonna change it, if omega thinks little mac looks like shit, sure that's his opinion and nothing can change that, but you can't really say he looks out of place in a game with such design variety. saying he looks out of place (if you don't count half the roster) makes zero suit sense

Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on February 14, 2014, 06:22:41 pm
I thought that 7 is really a bit too much.

One vehicle with all the koopalings on board and them fighting constantly for control would have been a better idea.

When Iwate mentioned we would not guess which new characters there are he was right but i totally hoped for a change in the mario kart cast with characters from other Nintendo games.

Changing Mario Kart to something like super smash bros after so many MK games could be great and allow tracks through the many Hyrule Worlds or Brinstar...a F-Zero Track etc....
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Titiln on February 14, 2014, 06:30:59 pm
i like them, personally. it's not like mario kart is missing obvious mario characters at this point. it's better than baby waluigi or bone bowser. i would've rather seen some characters from warioware or donkey kong, but they're not bad choices. the idea of having all 7 at the same time sounds like a disaster in every possible sense

actually where the hell is magikoopa, he was supposed to be in mario kart 64!!!

i'm sure nintendo kart will happen at some point, but as long as mario kart games sell i don't see it happening. no need to use that card yet
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Person Man on February 14, 2014, 06:49:53 pm
I've always liked the Koopalings, so getting a chance to play as any of them I want is a win in my book.  Besides, better to have them than a bunch of generic enemy types filling out the roster.  Yeah, we totally need a Koopa Troopa and a Para Troopa and a Dry Bones each taking up their own spot.

Obviously not, everyone knows fighting games don't have items. And yes, I think that at least 6 of those slots could've gone to better characters like Shyguy.

My point is that the slots are not "wasted" because if they wanted to add Shyguy, they would do Shyguy, without caring if they'd already done the  Koopalings already. There's no justification for thinking that the Koopalings are taking the place of some other characters they could have done instead, or in other words "wasted slots".
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Titiln on February 14, 2014, 07:15:25 pm

It seems a bit too soon to remove that considering they don't have much in terms of online play anyway. Especially the Wii games. You can still play them on the WiiU so it takes features away from their current system. Which is exactly what they don't need right now!

Well JNP it's happening in May which means Mario Kart 8 is coming out, Mario Kart 7 is still online, 3DS games are still online which is the newest gen of Pokemon which everyone who plays competitively needs to have anyways, and the servers haven't been doing too much beyond a few things anyways. It's unfortunate but it's been like, 5 years if not longer and it's just costing extra money when they have a superior networking service running for those who keep up to date.

Also new Donkey Kong game is amazing why has nobody said anything about it in here! Just finished World 5-2, what a rush!
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Orochi Gill on February 28, 2014, 06:29:23 pm
After looking through my library, the only games I'll actually miss the online are Brawl, Mario Kart Wii and Pokemon Platinum/Black/Black 2. AC: Wild World/City Folk had a dead community when I got it, as does Phantom Hourglass, Mario Kart DS was laden with ragequitters and hackers in a year, and I didn't even know Bleach: Blade of Fate, FF3, Goldeneye DS, FE: Shadow Dragon, Scribblenauts Collection, Sonic Colors DS, and Tetris DS had online. Metroid Prime Hunters and Star Fox Command I didn't play enough to work with online in those.

I don't think I'm missing out by losing online in any of these, but I might be wrong.

I recommend nobody should buy a wii u. wii u is the worst and only has upscaled 720p rehashes. I scamed into buy nsmbu for 55 dallors, that game was a quick cash grab and SMB3W was just sm3dl with cat suits and hd graphics. Nintendo love scaming their fans and giving them bullshit. notice how nsmbu is still 50-60 dallors since 2012. Nintendo is evil and greddy corperations. Nintendo dosent even care about gamers, all the care is about kids and parents money. Nintendo fanboys are deceiving people to buy the wii u. I was a fool into thinking wii u is next gen. am saving up for an xbox 360.

In regards to the Wi-Fi Connection shutdown, some user on GameFAQs has posted evidence that GLU Mobile is truly to blame for it. 
Since the WFC was run through Gamespy and GLU bought that out, apparently they have been shutting down support for older games. 

http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/631516-wii-u/68679524

Quote from one of the supporting links showing that other companies have been affected by this previously. 

Quote
New submitter OldTimeRadio writes "Over the last month, both game publishers and gaming communities alike were surprised to find their GameSpy multiplayer support suddenly disabled by GLU Mobile, who purchased GameSpy from IGN this August. Many games, including Neverwinter Nights 1 & 2, Microsoft Flight Simulator X, Swat 4, Sniper Elite, Hidden and Dangerous 2, Wings of War, Star Wars: Battlefront are no longer able to find (and in some cases even host) multiplayer games. While games like Neverwinter Nights are still able to directly connect to servers if players know the IP address, less-fortunate gamers expressed outrage on GLU Mobile's 'Powered by GameSpy' Facebook page. In an open letter to their Sniper Elite gaming community today, UK game developer Rebellion explained it was helpless to change the situation: 'A few weeks ago, the online multiplayer servers for Sniper Elite were suddenly switched off by Glu, the third-party service we had been paying to maintain them. This decision by Glu was not taken in consultation with us and was beyond our control. We have been talking to them since to try and get the servers turned back on. We have been informed that in order to do so would cost us tens of thousands of pounds a year — far in excess of how much we were paying previously. We also do not have the option to take the multiplayer to a different provider. Because the game relies on Glu and Gamespy's middleware, the entire multiplayer aspect of the game would have to be redeveloped by us, again, at the cost of many tens of thousands of pounds.""


I bought a Wii for Brawl.  I used to play it online religiously every Monday for hours.  I'll miss it, but couch play is better anyway. 
I Brawled this past Thanksgiving with my nieces which was great.  Three of them against me with handicap on and I still won.   :laugh:

Other than that I mostly played Pokemon Battle Revolution, with some Animal Crossing City Folk (before HDCL), Excitebots, TMNT Smash up, Tatsunoko Vs Capcom, and yes, Castlevania Judgment. 

My only regret is not making a point of playing The Last Story online.  I never did get those online-only items.  Guess I'll see if I can grab a few before time is up.

I like the crossover idea. As it is stated in the article, great games are made with working together instead of being rivals. I like what Nintendo and Sega does. We have seen some Mario & Sonic crossovers and this is definitly a good new game.

In an interview with NowGamer, Rocksteady's Dax Ginn explained that the decision to release Batman: Arkham Knight on PS4, Xbox One and PC and not Wii U, PS3 and Xbox 360, was made in response to the question: "what do we have to do to make the Batmobile work?".

"It was the one thing we hadn’t done," Ginn explained. "Once we decided we were going to commit to the Batmobile, all these other technical decisions were made for us."

"We knew that we had to do it right – the imagination of the experience of driving the Batmobile that people have is that it’s fast, that it’s destructive, it’s kind of a tank in Gotham City, but it’s also highly technical – all of those things can only be done on next-gen," said Ginn.

. . .

We followed up with Ginn to ask whether that's the same issue that's arisen with the Wii U, whether the console doesn't have the power for Rocksteady to do what they wanted with Arkham Knight.

"We have to make our technology choices specifically with reference to the gameplay objectives that we want, so we choose the platforms that are going to give us that," said Ginn.

it's a next gen system because it's part of the next generation of consoles (8th generation, wii u, ps4, xbone). the system's power is another issue altogether. it's next gen and it's comparatively underpowered.

Than let's just say that the Wİİ U is the successor to the Wii as we all know. It is the first Nintendo console to support high-definition graphics. Just simple and doesn't need arguments like it is or it isn't next gen right?

While your post provides an explanation, it's not necessarily a satisfying one. Under that loose definition, the Ouya is also next gen, because who cares about the power.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Titiln on March 29, 2014, 12:14:48 am
the ouya is part of this generation, low power and other issues nonwithstanding. if it's not part of this generation, then what the hell is it? it's definitely not part of the ps3/360/wii (released 2005-2006) generation. if the ouya somehow was a success then industry exxperts would be comparing its sales to the xbone ps4 and wii u. it turned out to be a joke and nobody cares about it at this point, but it's part of this generation and will go down in history as such.

stephen totilo is upset that this isn't on the 3ds
Quote
The knock would be that Mario Kart 8 doesn't play all that differently than the other Mario Karts. Graphics aside, I couldn't tell you a good non-business reason for Nintendo to keep 8 from also running on the 3DS. The gameplay isn't beyond the capabilities of Nintendo's popular handheld. But, hey, Nintendo still likes to spend time and money making a game that only a portion of their audience can play. It worked before and I guess they think it still works now.
i guess this same argument could've applied to mario kart 7. why put it on the 3ds instead of the wii, a console with a much larger install base than the failing 3ds?

I hope it's true. Actually why doesn't Nintendo make all previous circuits return in game? Something like a unlockable mode for classic circuits in game. Would be great imo.

Also, the game might still get the double dash dual racers wich the gamecube had. I enjoyed thatone and it was very cool to play with friends around. If they include those, this game will have most of it's needs completed. I hope they can solve the processing power and costs of it.

Mario Golf - World Tour DLC confirmed [3 packs, 2 x 18 hole course each, Season Pass] (http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=805959)
Quote
Nintendo is offering players the opportunity to nearly double the amount of content they can play in the Mario Golf: World Tour game, which launches May 2 for the portable Nintendo 3DS system. With 10 courses and 126 holes (an amount equivalent to previous games in the franchise), extensive multiplayer modes as well as regional and worldwide tournaments, the main game offers plenty of content for golf fans already. But players who can’t get enough golf and want to expand their experiences can purchase up to a total of 108 new downloadable holes and additional Mushroom Kingdom golfers. The DLC opens up further challenging courses for players to enjoy as they test their skills (broadband Internet access is required).

“We’re letting fans expand their experience with Mario Golf: World Tour,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Some players might be content hitting the links on the numerous courses already included with the game, while others will appreciate the option of being able to add to their fairway fun with new courses and characters.”

The downloadable content for the game will be released in three separate packs: the Mushroom Pack launching on May 2, the Flower Pack launching later in May and the Star Pack launching in June. Each pack includes two new 18-hole courses and a new playable character. Players will receive Toadette with the Mushroom Pack, Nabbit with the Flower Pack and Rosalina with the Star Pack.

Each pack will be available for $5.99 from Toad’s Booth, which can be found in the main menu of the game. Mario Golf: World Tour owners who know they want to buy all three add-on packs can buy a Season Pass at a discounted rate of $14.99 starting May 2. Season Pass holders will get access to each new pack as it becomes available, and will receive a special bonus of Gold Mario as a playable character at the time of purchase. Gold Mario has a special Golden Flower shot that gains coins for every yard it travels. For those who purchase all three packs individually, Gold Mario will also be available once all packs have been released. Nintendo will also offer Trial Tournaments for consumers interested in trying out a sample of the downloadable courses before deciding to purchase. Consumers who own the game and download the Trial Pack will be able to participate in these online tournaments.

NA MK8 Direct (http://youtu.be/JbuJZP0_8iQ) EU MK8 Direct (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flpfRzP2ONU&feature=youtu.be)

Quote
REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–One month from today, Mario Kart 8 will be driving players wild with anti-gravity racing action. To get people revved up for the Wii U game, Nintendo released a new Nintendo Direct video that announced some additional news nuggets, including a Mario Kart 8 Wii U bundle, a free downloadable game offer for Wii U owners who buy Mario Kart 8, details about online features, cool new characters and devastating new items.

“Everyone loves Mario Kart,” said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “It’s a franchise that brings people together for fun at a family gathering, a frenzied race against friends or just an afternoon break at the office. The numerous new features of Mario Kart 8 make this the most ambitious version yet, and one that will have players of all skill levels racing for the checkered flag.”

To view the Nintendo Direct in its entirety, visit http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct. Some of the new information announced today included:

Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle: People who don’t yet own a Wii U system will find it easy to get in on the action. On May 30 Nintendo is releasing the Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set bundle that includes a Wii U Deluxe Set system, a Mario Kart 8 game, a red Mario Wii Wheel accessory and a red Mario Wii Remote Plus controller, all at a suggested retail price of just $329.99.

Get a Free Digital Game: People who buy Mario Kart 8 and register the game with Club Nintendo before July 31 will receive a free Nintendo eShop download code for an additional Wii U game. Players can grow their Wii U digital game collections by choosing from one of these well-received Wii U games: New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD or Wii Party U. That’s a two-for-one deal featuring some of the all-time great Wii U games. This offer also applies to people who get the game in the Mario Kart 8 bundle or digitally in the Nintendo eShop.

Online Multiplayer: Up to 12 players can race together online in four different multiplayer modes, as long as everyone has a broadband Internet connection. Like to trash-talk your friends while you’re preparing for a race? You’re in luck! Mario Kart 8 lets players chat with one another in the lobby area using the Wii U GamePad microphone or text phrases as they wait for their friends to join. Players also can create public or private tournaments for which they specify the day of the week, the time and the rules. Per tradition, players will be able to race against ghost data from friends or even the top 10 worldwide racers. They can try to beat them or just pick up a few tips and tricks from studying the best. If you beat the development team’s ghosts, you’ll get cool stamps for use in Miiverse posts.

Mario Kart TV: As previously announced, players can watch their highlight racing reels, rewind them, play them in slow motion or upload them to Miiverse. They can watch the world’s most popular highlight reels and comment on them. But players with Google accounts can also upload their reels directly to their YouTube channels.

New Items: Items are what make Mario Kart games so balanced. No matter how skilled racers are, they’re just a blue Spiny Shell away from disaster. A well-timed item can also turn defeat into victory in an instant. The new Super Horn blows away all other items – literally. Sounding the Super Horn issues forth a sonic shock wave that blasts away everything in the vicinity, including other drivers, Red Shells and even blue Spiny Shells. It’s a potent asset, especially for drivers trying to maintain their lead. Mario Kart 8 also introduces the Crazy Eight, a swirl of eight different items that lucky players can use one by one.

New Racers: Two new playable female characters make their debut appearances in Mario Kart 8. New heavyweight driver Pink Gold Peach glows with a golden light and makes a nice counterpart to Metal Mario. Baby Rosalina shows up for a play date with other Baby characters. As in past Mario Kart games, players can again choose to play as their Mii characters, which rounds out the field of racers to an even 30.

Lol no Bowser Jr.

Don't Mario Karts have unlockable characters usually maybe they're saving characters like Birdo and Dry Bones as unlockable otherwise 3 version of Mario and Peach is terrible and 2 version Luigi, Daisy and Rosalina is almost just as bad but outside of that the rest of the game looks great.

It's all because Nintendo started working with Capcom Co., Ltd.!!! They caught the Capcom Co., Ltd.initis!

This game looks BUSY as heck now. The stages used to be so simple. Still can't wait for it though. Mario Kart is the only racing game I really got into.

Quote
Nintendo has announced plans to release character figurines with built-in Near Field Communication functionality that are compatible with Wii U and 3DS games.

Planned for launch from this year-end sales season, the figures are code-named NFP, for both “NFC Featured Platform” and “Nintendo Figurine Platform.”

The figures are designed to be compatible with multiple games for Nintendo platforms. Nintendo is aiming to develop more software titles with NFP compatibility.

“Nintendo has a lot of well-known character IP that has originated in video games, and we have been regularly releasing titles from game franchises that make use of this character IP,” Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said. “This is why I believe a brand-new type of platform will be born when the character IP becomes compatible with NFP.”

NFP figurines can be both read and written to, so it can tell what character figurine is in use, and a compact amount of data unique to each game can be written into it and read from it.

“You will be able to customize your NFP to raise or train your own Nintendo characters, for example,” Iwata said.

At launch, NFP will only be compatible with Wii U. However, a wireless 3DS NFP reader/writer is in development for launch in the first half of of the next calendar year.

Nintendo will announce NFP compatible titles at E3 in Los Angeles next month, as well as showcase NFP produces and disclose more specific information about the figurines.

Outside of NFP, which Nintendo detailed during its latest financial results briefing, Nintendo also revealed its first smartphone app, Mario Kart TV.

Mario Kart TV is a web service that will let users watch shared videos and view rankings from Mario Kart 8 by logging in with their Nintendo Network ID.

Some more information on it.

I'm glad they're making more use of the NFC reader in the Gamepad.

I just hope they don't make the figures GameStop exclusive this time.  As a guy who bought 30+ figures over the course of three Skylanders games, I need my options for BOGO sales. 
And especially don't make them random again.  That kept me from bothering with Pokémon Rumble U and Disney Infinity.

A pretty informative post from what is normally the cesspool known as Gamespot. I think this may shed some light on that question.

Quote
As a Chinese, I want to make a few points.



1. Students is a big part of gamers in China. General families can afford consoles and games, but parents in China are not interested in purchasing those stuff because they do not wanna their children spend too much time on games.

2. Low-income people in China won't spend a penny on games and consoles, they struggling to survive.

3. Chinese have very rich gaming experience----on PC

4. Chinese gamers prefer f2p games, they do not like spending money in advance, but once they find the game is good, their purchasing power can be really strong. A lot of people had spend thousands dollars in a single game.

5. Console ban lifting is really meaningless, won't change much.

I'm interested in seeing how Nintendo formulates their plan around China's gaming preferences.

We apologize for disappointing many people by failing to include same-sex relationships in Tomodachi Life. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to change this game’s design, and such a significant development change can’t be accomplished with a post-ship patch. At Nintendo, dedication has always meant going beyond the games to promote a sense of community, and to share a spirit of fun and joy. We are committed to advancing our longtime company values of fun and entertainment for everyone. We pledge that if we create a next installment in the Tomodachi series, we will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players.

Since I am black...I would still be completely indifferent. Unless it's a racial bias thing, I just don't really see the point. Which is the same here, if Nintendo did show a bias against homosexuals, then I would agree, but until then, it's kinda pointless.

In a game of "simulate your life!" being told "lol you cant be black, silly". Means your skin colour or whatever it is you identify as being you is not representative of enough people to even be considered normal.

If you are not going to let a person represent themselves in a game , maybe dont make a game about simulating themselves.


PS: forums work so that people dont say pieces and then just move on, they are adding something to the discussion, you cant really walk into a fighting game thread and just go "well I certainly dont see the point of punch buttons" and then go "Whoa whoa its just MY opinion ive moved on dont try to engage me on it, stop persecuting me "when someone tries to engage you back. :)  If you dont care about the type of game maybe you dont have anything to say about the subject.

i feel a lot of the outrage is misguided. it's a game released a year ago in japan (where gay marriage is illegal) and it's getting an overseas release to see if people give a shit. they can't just go "oh let's add gay marriage to the game. hey CODER MAN please edit [GAYPEOPLE = YES] in rules.ini please and thanks", it's not that easy. the whole thing should've been "please add gay marriage to the sequel" instead of "add gay to the game or we're never buying anything nintendo you pieces of shit"

*Sigh* Alright, let me actually turn this into something of a conversation...

I'm not saying, acting or getting all in arms about Nintendo apologizing about something that offends people, I find it pointless that this is even a thing, let alone the approach people took.
This type of thing isn't just a state of a game, but more of simply the state of the developers. If they decided to not make a black people a choice, I wouldn't be offended, but I would see people disappointed. If they CHOSE not to because of a racial bias, then I would be offended and not in this passive state, but if they chose not to simply because it was no reason, then I wouldn't be offended, but again, I'm not saying people shouldn't BE offended.

I already stated the reason I'm not offended by this sort of thing(I don't really ever put myself in any game, Life Simulator would be included), but I'm not saying others shouldn't be offended if they see it this way, but as Titlin put it, I'm more disappointed of the approach since it honestly went nowhere, especially since you will obviously get those who will just act ridiculous rather than logically. So...there you go.

And as I stated, they won. So while it is an issue, in the end, I don't really feel like Nintendo lost but more as the mass just makes me want to shake my head in disappointment since I'm pretty certain a good chunk did not think logically of the scenario.

That doesnt make sense, how do you know any of that.
Whats the logically of the scenario here? What are you shaking your head at that people dont understand?

You are talking as if it wasnt an issue on the same sentence where you say its an issue.

So its an issue but people that think its an issue arent logical so it loops back into non issuing?

Seriously i could use your sentence to talk about abolishing slavery.

also i feel not letting the game know "hey this mii is homosexual" makes the game awkward if you have homosexual friends and want to put them in the game (since the game is basically about you creating characters representing yourself and people you know in real life, looks and personality included, and watching stupid situations play out, like weird musical acts) because then suddenly your gay mii friend is dating a girl and that would be extremely far from what the reality is. it's not just an issue for homosexual people playing the game

and then oh god what do you do about the bisexuals?? because what if someone is hetero but not into bisexuals. how can the game know. jesus christ there are too many variables. cancel the game

Wow, thanks for stuffing words in my mouth that I never even meant.

I'm saying it's not an issue from my perspective, but it can be to others, that's been my stance this whole time.
My main issue is simply the fact that I find that people have, again, taken this to a stupid conclusion than a logical one(aka, simply tell Nintendo to put it in the sequel since the game is already out in Japan and not act insane about it), which only makes these things worse since if Nintendo really want to be asses about it, they can easily just do Japan only sequels from then on(because I honestly believe a huge amount of developers are Prima Donnas rather than actual businessmen).

And nice strawman about my sentence being equal to slavery, quit it already, you know that wasn't what I was going with in that statement anyways.

We haven't even gotten into Transsexuals, can't forget about them.

I feel it got so big because the first response felt like they were trying to ignore the issues and not take a stance on it instead of being what the second response was.

I'm guessing that Nintendo's recent statement was the second response.

This is the typical difference in cultural beliefs conflicting with one another and creating conflict. I'm sure Nintendo didn't maliciously disallow same-sex relationships.

As far as the other point:
Regardless if they meant to or not, it's pretty hard to ignore the presence (or lack thereof) of a particular grouping of people (even if someone knows the reason why it may be the case). I mean, it's rather uncomfortable to feel like your kind was excluded and pretty easy to become emotional about it.

It was their second response; their first response was that the game takes place in a whimsical land and they didn't want to make a social statement.

It definitely doesn't seem like a malicious thing, it just looks like Nintendo doesn't want to piss anyone off.

No transsexual would want to go through the same shit they go in real life to get they gender correctly.
It is a frustrating process. We will just pick the gender we identify with and be very, very happy.

In any event, just another example of people being outspoken on wanting more options for their games (which is always a good thing). Even if it was a misunderstanding, still nothing wrong with bringing the issue to light, and it all worked out anyway (so it seems).

So this is was gossip feels like. :P

It really was [blown out of proportion]. It's not a gay life simulator. It's a mii universe simulator with odd quirky scenarios. Just because it doesn't have gay relationships doesn't mean nintendo discriminates. It WASN'T the main focus of the game, and the scope of this game is limited so i don't know what the fuck anyone was expected. If you want a gay life simulator go play second life or play ultima 6 and have gay sex with dirty pirate gigolos.

Not necessarily anything wrong with the main point (bold), but clearly not the best argument to support it. Also the last part of that statement was completely unnecessary (and was probably what he was banned over).

Me?

I do not really care about homosexuality in my games. I basically have only one criteria:

Is it a great game that I can play for many, many hours and days or not?

Did you see homosexuality or any other social commentary in the criteria? If the answer is no, then you are correct.

I do not see the reason why people are making such a big deal of such things...
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Niitris on May 11, 2014, 02:18:37 pm
But it's not about a game "being good" per say.
And the people who do want better tolerance of same-sex relationships seem to care.

Not Nintendo news (sorry), but I guess this discussion nicely segways into this:
Sims 4 rated +18 in Russia (http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/05/russia-hangs-adults-only-rating-on-the-sims-4/) due to "the promotion of homosexuality to minors."

Quote
The Russian Federation has placed an 18+ rating on the upcoming release of The Sims 4, marking the game as "prohibited for children" due to a controversial law restricting the promotion of same-sex relationships to minors.

News of the rating comes via a tweet from the official Sims Russia account, which was later followed up with an explanation to a curious player. "18+ [rating] has been assigned in accordance with the law number 436-FZ 'On the protection of children from information harmful to their health and development,'" the tweet reads (via Google Translate).

That law, passed in September of 2012, has already drawn widespread controversy around the world for seemingly criminalizing the mere mention of a person's own sexual orientation and encouraging violence against Russia's LGBT community. The law drew protests and provoked safety concerns for some athletes during the Sochi Winter Olympics earlier this year.

Sims games routinely get T for Teen (ages 13 and up) ratings in the US, PEGI 12 ratings in the European Union, and M (ages 15 and up) ratings in Australia. In Germany, The Sims 3 was even rated as appropriate for ages 6 and up by the country's USK rating board. The games have included the option of same-sex relationships since the series debuted in 2000.

Based on the number of comments on Destructoid, seems like this was worth it's own thread. :P

Some people believe that like the Russian law, Nintendo is/was unaccepting of gay relationships (which I don't think is true and a misunderstanding). That's why people are making a big deal out of it.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Omega on May 11, 2014, 06:20:40 pm
The thing is that some people accept same-sex relationships and some not. I don't think those T for Teen or 18+ ratings can solve that. I just started to think that they make more games for adults and not for kids anymore. A game concept isn't decided by it's ratings as they just have to write it on the cover because of the laws. Every gamer plays the game they wants without even caring about the ratings it has there.

even the sims when it got ported for the gameboy advance had nintendo removing the same sex relationships.

Oh boy, you really got me! That was pretty clever, you're so totally right! You've really opened my eyes, man, all of our eyes, shown us the folly of our actions. For too long we have shunned all games that do not advance the homosexual agenda, but now my worldview has been shattered. Thank you, you feckless oaf.

How the hell was that bragging? I was correcting Morph on how he was addressing how we felt about the whole thing and it isn't a matter of not being intelligent enough, but lack of caring.

And besides, Empathy and Apathy aren't 2 sides of the same coin, just because I lack concern and passion over the issue doesn't mean I can't see how it affects others, otherwise I would be a sociopath...

Trying to make me the evil or dumb one because I'm not as passionate over the issue you are is not you being the moral victor, it's you being the douchebag and me being apathetic to the issue.

I'm just not seeing much if any insanity here. It's a Twitter campaign that specifically says not to boycott Nintendo, but is designed merely to bring awareness to the issue. There will always be crazies in any type of deal like this; but so far it's been pretty restrained. And it's mostly over.

I searched the net for a bit and found this:

Quote
Looks like this title is being developed by BOTH Omega-Force and Team Ninja. Both Mr. Hisashi Koinuma and Mr. Yosuke Hayashi will be producers of the game.
Of course it's supervised by Nintendo's own Mr. Eiji Aonuma

Introduced characters are Link and Impa (since Impa is written on the same group as Link I wonder if she could be playable. Still my own speculation though)

And there are also original enemy characters here:
The Black Witch Shia
The Scorching Berserker Varuga
The Magician of Darkness Wizuro (Wizro?)

Shia is the main enemy character here, and the latter 2 are her underlings

Gamespy was cheap and this obviously paid the price in them going out of business. I doubt any company will learn from this and it will continue to happen. Not saying that them dropping support doesn't happen either. Every 3 months EA and a slew of others drop the online portions of games.

It's Koei's Warriors series, of course they'll put a large amount of playable characters and push them as far as they can. Even a dozen characters is nothing for them and would already be a lot for Zelda (the two upcoming games have 140 and 50+ characters each).
What the hell's going on with Impa's sword?
The Warriors series happened. How to make it not feel weird to mow down three dozens of enemies with a single slice ? Just make the sword big enough.

Cia seems pretty unique for Zelda (though here again, it's classic for Koei), but Valga and Wizro are cool.
I wonder if Aonuma's involvement means it will officially take a relevant place in the timeline.

Looking around, it doesn't seem like these shots have been posted :
http://www.allgamesbeta.com/2014/05/hyrule-warriors-higher-res-screenshots.html

Post by: Byakko on May 24, 2014, 02:26:09 am
Warriors is mostly just point-A-to-point-B, plow through waves of enemies ; at most, it's in several parts as the story unfolds in the middle of the map (go there, then stuff changes, go here, repeat). However, there's still this one screenshot of Link opening a chest, so it's still possible they incorporated some of that, but I'm not betting on it - Warriors is almost never indoors.
I do expect the possibility to pick up weapons (or weaponized items), so that Link can sort of "change class" and use a caster moveset, a grappling hook moveset etc. On that alone I think it's doable, but keys and compasses and heart pieces, I don't think so. I'm not counting too much on puzzles, though it could be cool and easily work if it's part of some objectives and still part of the battle system (get there, use the hook on this area to open access to here etc.) but classic Zelda block-pushing and such, nope.

The chest is what's giving me hope. That and I hope Nintendo may guide them a bit with some direction. I would get bored with just beating up hordes of baddies for hours on end. I'm not even expecting a full on Zelda game inside a DW game. Just a little bit of puzzle and exploration in an outdoor"dungeon" would be nice. As long as it's not just point A to point B mash buttons and kill stuff all game long.

I was always very wary of getting into the Warriors series, but I played Orochi 3 and the way the story advances while in battle makes it kind of work (don't stay on it for too long at a time though). Since Zelda can easily be story heavy if Koei puts its heart in it, it's doable. I do expect more Warriors action than Zelda action. (I edited my previous post BTW)

Team Ninja is involved so of course there has to be the lolboobs character, I am just happy that it isn't Zelda.

Where Ralph at though?

*Sigh*

Team Ninja has never been behind any DW game since the merger past guest characters. Omega Force has been doing that for the females in it's series since the start.

I'm perfectly fine with Shia, all things considered she's no worse then Twinrova was, she just has more Polygons.
Eh, to me, she looks like she's gone way too over the top compared to Twinrova.

Similar to other Zelda games, weapons and other important in Hyrule Warriors are acquired through treasure chests. Hayashi also said that the iconic treasure chest opening animation has been prepared for all of the playable characters.
Knowing the Warriors version, it doesn't sound like you'll be able to switch weapon in the middle of a fight, but at least you'll get the weapons by finding the chest (in Warriors you just buy them at a shop outside of battle and you select your weapon before the battle)

Instead, they’re giving the boss fights a Warriors touch, by having instances where you’ll face a bunch of smaller enemies to charge up your meter, then unleash a special attack on the boss. There will also be more Zelda-like features, such as strategically using items that can be found around stages to take on the boss.
YES. So you probably pick up items on the ground in the middle of the fight and you use it against your target. It doesn't automatically mean it'll also be possible to do something similar for exploration, but that's a start, and at least there's a decent chance it'll go this way.

Since Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce, you can switch your weapons mid battle.

Strikeforce was an entirely different system. I know this cus I broke that system very early in the game.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Byakko on May 24, 2014, 08:45:38 pm
I've only actually played Warriors Orochi 3 but I've been eyeing the series for a while (I've been scared of the repetitiveness and the difficulty of remembering the story, characters, and weapons). I assumed the weapon system was mostly the same as in Orochi 3 because I never noticed that feature in any video or gameplay explanation I've come across, even the Koei Wiki barely mentions it, what the hell. Now that I'm looking for it, apparently 7 and 8 do have a secondary weapon system, but it's impractical (Strikeforce switches with a button press, while 7 and 8 seem to require going through a pause menu), that's probably why I never noticed it. Okay, maybe there's a chance Koei will adapt that system and make it much easier. Hopefully. Especially since I doubt they'll include the system with multiple characters and the ability to switch character in battle, they can replace that with a quick weapon switch system. There's a chance, then !

They're more or less button-mashing light shows. They can be fun, I suppose, if you've never played one before. I have played just about all of them and it starts to get monotonous after a while. I heard the most recent DW finally offers some variety in the gameplay, I haven't checked it out though.

Don't bother with the Anime spin-offs.

Yep, on the Wii U there's Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper. (http://www.ign.com/games/warriors-orochi-3-hyper/wii-u-142961) Although if you feel like waiting, the PS4 is getting Ultimate sometime this year.

If it counts there's also Ken's Rage 2 (http://www.ign.com/games/fist-of-the-north-star-kens-rage-2/ps3-135753) which is pretty much Dynasty Warriors meets Fist of the North Star. Although from what I heard about it it's pretty bad.

Yeah, I agree to an extent. I REALLY hate her design too. Though no one else I know is making a fuss about it.... But then again, over sexualized characters tend to annoy me (I'm looking at you, Bayonetta.)

Though that said, there IS a Zelda villain who was on par with that design, not named Twinrova... Veran, look her up on a Zelda Wiki... her proportions are WAY out of whack....

A more "cartoon-ish" color would've looked better for this game; I guess they agreed to let Mercedes use their signature silver.
Also looks out of place since Mercedes are supposed to be luxury cars so seeing them in a karting game is kinda odd.

It's a plethora of factors, really. I'll go over the major ones.
- Triple items no longer allow you to pick up other items while you hold em behind/around you.
- Blue Shells are not only destroyable by the Super Horn, they just don't show up as much anymore(unless you're on Frantic items.)
- all of the silly items from MKWii are gone too.

Those are probably the biggest changes.

Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: Niitris on June 09, 2014, 11:54:42 am
Nintendo already has the biggest game they can make, an all-star brawler gathering some of the most iconic characters in all of videogames. (http://mugenguild.com/forum/topics/super-smash-bros-3dswii-u-151222.0.html) They also have some lesser known IPs that receive games every so often, even if some are underused (F-zero where are you); their games are fine.

A true boost for their console (and games by proxy) would be stronger 3rd party support (something they had in the SNES days). There's only so much they can do about a console that most people don't consider next-gen.
Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: "Bad News" Hoffmann on June 09, 2014, 12:11:05 pm
Perfect point.

The question is just this one: Why should someone who does not care about Nintendo games buy a new Nintendo console when there are only a few games not made by Nintendo or for its Audience?

On the Sony and even the Microsoft competition such people get a graphically stronger hardware and even if they are not Sony or MS game players they have enough variation by all the third party developers. There are options for basically every big and niche genre available there while Nintendo gets maybe 2-4 games per month which are not made by Nintendo directly. and have no big variation of genres.

Title: Re: The Nintendo News Thread
Post by: DNZRX768 on June 09, 2014, 01:43:49 pm
You know, Nintendo have tried the massive 3rd Party support option for their consoles before, as well as the "console that is as powerful as the current gen consoles" option (Nintendo Gamecube is as powerful as the PS2 and Xbox. And boasts a 3rd party library 3 times greater than Wii.). But both options bombed spectacularly (Gamecube finished last in that generation). They would be understandably hesitant to try something that failed once before.

Remember, just because a console does not widespread 3rd party support does not mean it is a failure. There is value in taking the Quality over Quantity route at times.

Wanting to being able to play Tekken, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat,Injustice, BlazBlue and KOF on one console instead of only Tekken and Injustice and somewhen at the end of 2014, Smash Bros. does not mean to take a quantity over quality route.

It simply means a lot more available quality.

I really don't know why Nintendo takes this road nowadays with their consoles. Why are they so stingy about the cost to manufacture them when investing that extra of money would result in far greater third party support?

I mean sure, they probably want to keep the costs as low as possible to sell the console for a low price and with that get most of the younger audience but the other companies have no issues getting young people to buy their consoles as well.

A Nintendo console with far greater third party support would definitely win most of the market because a lot of people who likes Nintendo games would no longer have a reason to buy another console if their shitty flavor of the month FPS appeared in Nintendo's console too.

I don't think Nintendo is really competing for Sony/Microsoft's marketshare anymore, and that's probably the way they like it.

They've successfully differentiated their product, I'm not sure why they'd go back on that.

Post by: Niitris on June 09, 2014, 04:04:19 pm
They are; Nintendo emphasized more "hardcore gaming" in marketing for the Wii U. Reason they went back is because pride/business I guess. Maybe they weren't confident that they could replicate the success of the Wii doing the same exact thing or just wanted to make their platform more versatile (probably the latter).

A Nintendo console with far greater third party support would definitely win most of the market because a lot of people who likes Nintendo games would no longer have a reason to buy another console if their shitty flavor of the month FPS appeared in Nintendo's console too.

They'd have a problem winning over the US. People there have quite the attachment to the Xbox brand (even after the Xbone fiasco) and their exclusives/ 3rd party treatment. Yearly sports games and shooters are still given the best incentives on the XB1 despite PS4 being the preferred of the 2 consoles. Nintendo would have to hope Microsoft fucks up even worse than last year.

Best case scenario for Nintendo: Microsoft scraps Xbox like rumors suggest (and nobody takes it over) combined with Sony underachieving with PS5.

You know, Nintendo have tried the massive 3rd Party support option for their consoles before, as well as the "console that is as powerful as the current gen consoles" option (Nintendo Gamecube is as powerful as the PS2 and Xbox. And boasts a 3rd party library 3 times greater than Wii.). But both options bombed spectacularly (Gamecube finished last in that generation).

3rd party support isn't something you do it's something you acquire. Gamecube showed up too late to beat the highly anticipated PS2. N64 was beaten by Sony's move to use CDs (for the PSX) instead of cartridges, making games more cost effective.

The demo of Hyrule Warriors they played on the stream in the Twilit stage. Didn't see Midna's "fused shadow" giant form last time, I expected it and I love it. It's also quite original to see other characters like Midna use classic items like the hookshot.
Also, in addition to item power-ups with the Great Fairy, there still are secret places hidden behind rocks you have to blow up (not included in this demo) and using the hookshot to get around, so the Zelda style is definitely safe.
Oh, something I wanted to say when they first showed the other stage (with King Dodongo), the map completely looked like some others from Warriors Orochi 3 (the only one I played) with very similar textures and objects so I was a little worried, but the Twilit stage made up for that, it's a lot more like the actual place from TP.

Nintendo planning future for new 2D and 3D Metroid (http://gematsu.com/2014/06/nintendo-planning-future-new-2d-3d-metroid)
Quote
We might not have heard about a new Metroid at this year’s E3, but Nintendo is having internal discussions about where to go with the series, and wants to “take care of” both the series’ 2D and 3D styles.

“So it has been a while since we released the last one and we’re having discussions internally about what we can do next,” Nintendo SPD group lead Shinya Takahashi told Kotaku. “So at this point we have two different types of Metroid games. We have the Prime style of Metroid game and we have the more traditional style of Metroid game. We feel that we do need to take care of both of these styles of play. And the hope is that at some point in the near future we’ll be able to share something about them.”

That is great news. It is good to know that they are aware of using both Primes and the traditional Metroid game styles for this. I enjoyed the Metroid Prime and Metroid Other M games.

I also liked the fact that it had post end-game content and allowed you to go back to the ship and get any collectibles you may have missed without requiring you to start a new savegame from the beginning. I hope more Metroid games allow you to do that in the future.

But yeah, I'd rather take another Zero Mission-like Metroid over any other kind. Other M was an alright one-shot game for me to pass the time and I find the Prime series kinda boring (Must be The environment and music, I prefer something more colorful like the GBA ones. Guess that's why I liked Other M too).

I was talking about basically not really having a story or really trying to make a character with the world or people in the setting.
Other M was a bad attempt, but it's still an attempt I'm on board of because it still has some stuff I liked about it.

'Any' story is story is not automatically better than no story.  Other M's story was an awful, shallow, sexist mess that thoroughly assassinated Samus' character and made the entire game measurably worse because of how poorly it was executed.  Yes it was 'more' of a story, but that is not the same thing as being better.

Welp, so much for a substantive debate about the merits of Other M's gameplay. Oh well, plenty of other people to talk with about this.

They should just sell out and reinvent the wheel regardless of whether it's necessary or not. The "same crap" happens to be pretty universally acclaimed, so yeah, let them do that with Metroid.
3D World is a great example of being both experimentative whilst simultaneously staying true to the roots of the franchise. In fact I would say Mario is pretty good about balancing experimentation with fidelity to the fundamentals of the series; on the other hand Metroid has really only gone through 2 or so overhauls (Prime and Other M, Super is debatable but it's mostly an outgrowth of the original). And that's not a bad thing or anything, because so far it has worked out in Metroid's favor, give or take a Prime Hunters or Other M.

Well no, Other M played like shit too. Sakamoto has no idea what made the series good and he should not be trusted with any further games in the series or be allowed to write character for Samus since we really don't need her to be reduced into a insufferable secondary character in the fucking game she stars in.
Well I dunno if I would call it shit, but it definitely had serious issues. The fundamentals of transplanting the 2D style of Metroid gameplay to three dimensions was pretty sound, but the implementation left a lot to be desired: the incredibly stupid switch-to-first-person-combat-to-fire-missiles shit; the rejection of the series's raison d'etre of exploration because you already have all the items, they're just waiting to be activated when you hit the right story event, so just keep following the path laid out for you (compounded by the pointlessness of the few collectables that do exist); the utterly drab and uncreative environments; and those dreadful first person pixel hunt stuff.

And that is of course ignoring the story, because the words do not exist to properly denigrate that thing.

Keep Sakamoto on the 2D, have Retro handling the 3D. Worked before.
At this point I can't help but have serious doubts that the games he was involved in with before were good because of him. But I dunno, maybe the loss of most constraints in him telling a long shitty story lead to most of Other M's failings.

That's pretty much what I would describe as shit.

I guess few of the bosses were ok though.

Or maybe the story was just so fucking bad that it distracted me from even noticing whatever little fun the gameplay might have held. I dunno.

I mean, she didn't really have a character before Other M (which is not an inherently terrible thing). But you could make certain assumptions, based on the monologues in Super and Fusion and the Zero Mission manga: she's devoted to justice, she never gives up, she'll go up against the steepest of odds and even her close allies if they stand in the way of galactic peace, and she's suffered immense trauma throughout her life but always rises above it.

Other M presents a Samus who goes weak in the knees at the first sight of her former commanding officer because she desperately needs a father figure; who desperately needs a baby put in her; who regresses into a child and gets someone killed when faced with a clone of her parent's killer that's she's already faced half a dozen times (and don't give me that "well this time she thought he was really dead", because she didn't act like that in the manga when first encountering Ridley, and she already went through the "oh my gosh Ridley's alive again" stuff in Super); who is so desperately willing to please someone who does nothing but treat her like absolute crap throughout the entire game and would rather burn to a crisp than decide to enable a passive heat shield because he didn't authorize it yet; who makes no decisions on her own that aren't first handed down by the actual main hero of the game (Adam, who also not only is the only person who gets to play the final level but also runs off with it); and who doesn't seem remotely similar to the woman that appeared in the other Metroid games.

I mean, she didn't really have a character before Other M (but was no worse for the wear). But you could make certain assumptions, based on the monologues in Super and Fusion and the Zero Mission manga: she's devoted to justice, she never gives up, she'll go up against the steepest of odds and even her close allies if they stand in the way of galactic peace, and she's suffered immense trauma throughout her life but always rises above it.
Well even without that, the fact that she is one woman who has canonically blown up a good few planets all in name of intergalactic peace suggests that she must have ovaries of... whatever the power suit is made of. A protagonist can have plenty of character if their actions and the results of those action mean something.

Outsider looking in, but the impression I got from Other M was that Sakamoto tried to make Samus more "Japanese" (obedient). Why did he think that was a good idea I have no clue.

Can't comment on gameplay but I'd imagine it's not a whole lot better.

Well, the gameplay at least feels like the people who made it have heard of Metroid before.

A protagonist can have plenty of character if their actions and the results of those action mean something.
Yep, she's got characterization by her actions too (though that applies to most game heroes, it's still something, because I don't get how someone who mudered an entire species and then exploded a planet goes to crying that her ex-commander doesn't want her to play rescue mission with him). She faces armies completely by herself, and always comes out on top.

'Any' story is story is not automatically better than no story.  Other M's story was an awful, shallow, sexist mess that thoroughly assassinated Samus' character and made the entire game measurably worse because of how poorly it was executed.  Yes it was 'more' of a story, but that is not the same thing as being better.

1. Thanks for completely ignoring the fact I said it was a bad attempt as if I didn't know how it was received at all.

2. "Sexist"...are we seriously using that word AGAIN without knowing what it means? If anything, you are looking at misogynistic, which by technical terms, isn't present in the game either. If anything, it's character derailment of a character that had virtually none.

3. Actually, a bad story IS better than no story because it's still better than lauding a character that pretty much has no character and is a cardboard cutout than basically removing it because people randomly started crafting things in it's non-existence.

No story > bad story, every time.

Using resources on something that will be abhorrently awful (not that most video game scripts are a masterpiece or anything) devalues a game; resources that could go to something else to make the game better. Not that devs shouldn't try to make a story, but I don't think anyone would pass trading a poorly thought out script for a superior game mode.

Misogyny would be the more accurate term, but sexist (in which misogyny is one kind of sexist attitude) isn't wrong. If the story writer(s) thought that having a woman go through the "be an obedient solder at all costs" shit was going to fly overseas (where most of the fandom was located), they was in for a rude awaking (which rightfully happened). The fact that the lead female was reduced to a complete subordinate to some guy who isn't nearly as important implies that females of lesser influence should be treated with just as little respect if not less.

EDIT: term is actually "male chauvisnism" (belief that men are superior to women). regardless of the term, point is that samus is defiled as someone who doesn't fight off a "sexist environment" (which is also bad characterization because there's nothing awesome about being bossed around by a secondary character).

That is objectively false.  Also I honestly don't know what you're trying to say in the last half of that sentence

Let's say, for the sake of argument, that 'fun' is something that can be measured by an objective, quantifiable amount.  Now say we have two games that are exactly the same amount of fun.  Game A has fun gameplay, but has no really significant story or characters.  Game B also has fun gameplay, but has a terribly written story and characters that are not believable and unlikable, and which actively detracts from a player's enjoyment of the game.  In this case, Game A is a demonstrably better game for not having a story because even though gameplay-wise they're identical, Game B is less fun to play because of the extra elements that ruin the player's experience.

In other words:  If I have two cakes, one with chocolate frosting and one with chocolate frosting and a giant turd, I'm not going to eat the turd cake just because there is technically more stuff on it.

lol no.

You can have a spider-man game where you have no story and you just beat up bad guys and you can have a spider-man game where the story is that he got raped by his main villain the hobgoblinator and now is seeking him out to rape him in revenge.

the first is okay the second is disgusting and stupid.
Other M seems to fall squarely into disgusting and stupid by removing Samus traits in order to make her a super anime waifu, any kind of character assassination effectively turns the story worse.

Yeah, I only responded to the post you made that was replying to mine, in which you ignored my gameplay critiques because LOL RAGE. Don't see why I should even bother trying to respond to anything else. Not when there's much so many other people to talk about Other M with.

No story > bad story, every time.

Using resources on something that will be abhorrently awful (not that most video game scripts are a masterpiece or anything) devalues a game; resources that could go to something else to make the game better. Not that devs shouldn't try to make a story, but I don't think anyone would pass trading a poorly thought out script for a superior game mode.
Indeed. There's far, far too much emphasis on putting out shitty stories delivered by long cutscenes these days. The actual game bits are all in service to a series of movie clips. What does it say about the medium of video games when cutscenes are the reward of doing well? It's insane. Instead of exploring how to use gameplay to advance a narrative it's too often the case that it feels like the game is only there to be a connective tissue between the cutscenes, to tell a story that makes no sense and . I mean, it's not like cutscenes are inherently awful or anything, and it's not that you should never ever use cutscenes to deliver story, but you shouldn't do so to the exclusion of doing it through gameplay. Like, take Super Metroid, it has the opening and closing cutscenes, but there's also the fantastic Mother Brain/Metroid confrontation, which conveys so much without a word being spoken, and has you acting it out.

anyway the point of my long shitty unconnected rant is like, cutscenes are too often used to deliver shitty story and games should make more of an effort to deliver story via gameplay, but cutscenes are still very useful, just don't write shitty stories, or something.

I mainly just want a sequel to Fusion. I think the absorbing gameplay would be an interesting way to go with the franchise and you've got a valid excuse for Samus losing her stuff that doesn't involve some guy watching her burn alive.
I also think a sequel to Fusion would be neat as hell, perhaps they could explore expanding the absorption mechanics to be active instead of passively giving you upgrades when you defeat a boss? Especially if they keep the X gone for good.

I don't think they even need a reason most of the time; Prime 3's method of just dropping a semi-upgraded Samus into the mix from the start worked out pretty well.

I missed this before, and I desperately need to talk more about Metroid!!!
I also liked the fact that it had post end-game content and allowed you to go back to the ship and get any collectibles you may have missed without requiring you to start a new savegame from the beginning. I hope more Metroid games allow you to do that in the future.
Wait, what? Every Metroid game lets you do that. :-\

Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty

But yeah, I'd rather take another Zero Mission-like Metroid over any other kind. Other M was an alright one-shot game for me to pass the time and I find the Prime series kinda boring (Must be The environment and music, I prefer something more colorful like the GBA ones. Guess that's why I liked Other M too).
Huh, well, Prime's music was actually done by the same guy who did Super and Zero Mission, Kenji Yamamoto. He's fantastic, and basically the Metroid composer. I dunno why they went with someone else for Other M, the result was really really forgettable. Oh wait, just remembered Yamamoto was doing DCKR the same time as Other M, maybe that's why? Still though why couldn't they couldn't they have gotten Minako Hamano (who worked with Yamamoto on Super, Zero Mission, and Prime 3, and did the Fusion soundtrack) to do it? Boring generic orchestral shit is no fun!

Yeah, might as well. Fusion stated that Samus destroyed all of the X-Virus due to literally causing the entire planet to go boom and I wouldn't be surprised if they do pull Other M and make the Federation make more by taking and keeping more samples to clone them(and Ridley...and the Metroids...and ANOTHER Dark Samus as well).

I have nothing to say as I like those games but, Metroid could use a new side character next to Samus Aran. The music also in the Metroid games are space based themes. It could use some variations with many instruments. More action and more tempo in it's themes.

Result of the evolution of gaming that will never reverse itself. While there was always an natural desire for "realistic presentation," the standards for it have increased considerably from 20 years ago. Using gameplay to tell the majority of a story worked when there wasn't a viable alternative, but today it would be seen as lazy and underfunded.

Off tangent, but I feel bad for gamers growing up in today's industry. Sounds like nostalgia goggles are on too tight, but I can say for sure that gaming years ago was considerably better than now, mainly because there were more of them and because the aforementioned standards of realistic presentation have skewed priorities in an unfavorable direction imo.

Well, cutscenes have been around for a long time, I'm not sure the "use gameplay to deliver story" thing was every really super popular in comparison. But now that the constraints have been loosened and developers can include hours and hours of cutscenes, it definitely feels that often the focus has shifted to exalt those cutscenes over everything else, positioning them as the sole reward for doing well (to tie this back to Other M, recall that the reward for beating the game is a special mode that edits out all the gameplay and stitches the cutscenes together to form a terrible, shitty movie), and as a result the gameplay suffers. There needs to be a better balance, and while there's certainly a ton of games that can tread that line, it feels like the current AAA development environment is increasingly losing sight of that line.

Also, more info about Mario Maker.

The ps3 update stopped the hacking on the consoles past the exploitable firmware. So updates aren't always a failure.

you don't know shit, as usual. it depends on the hack. a lot of the wii's hacks were stopped through firmware updates. the hacks that depended on a game (aka something you couldn't patch at all) could never be stopped because wii games couldn't be patched. wii u's games can be patched. a firmware update that forces you to download a patch for a certain hacked game before playing would prevent that issue.

[avatar]http://i42.photobucket.com/albums/e315/Tiger_Stripe/delancie_zpsadad2063.png[/avatar]Nintendo should just take all of their franchises and swap genres between them for new games.  They'd make like a billion dollars and they wouldn't even have to do anything extra.  Think about it:  an F-Zero styled Star Fox racer.  A Kirby game with 3D Mario gameplay.  Pokemon Crossing.  It'd be the easiest thing ever.

Next year’s Legend of Zelda might feature multiplayer (http://gematsu.com/2014/06/next-year-legend-of-zelda-might-feature-multiplayer)
Quote
The next Legend of Zelda game, announced for Wii U at E3 earlier this month, might feature a multiplayer component, according to producer Eiji Aonuma.

Speaking with Game Informer about the upcoming Dynasty Warriors-based Zelda title Hyrule Warriors, Aonuma said, “The two-player functionality of Hyrule Warriors is actually something that has traditionally been done in the Dynasty Warriors series, but they’ve changed because of the hardware and the second screen on your GamePad. Instead of having a splitscreen on the television, you have one-player playing on the television and one on the GamePad.”

He continued, teasing, “When I was talking back about making Zelda more than just a single-player experience? That’s something you will see in the future, maybe next year.”


Nintendo should make classic characters and their titles return in 3D and HD. I would like to see SMB2 and SMB3 with the same graphics and style like they did with SMB WII.

No collectibles, that's a disappointment.

Mario Maker will have the physics of the current SMB games even with the retro visuals. (http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/07/takashi_tezuka_mario_maker_wont_move_quite_like_the_original_mario_bros)

Takashi Tezuka said:
My greatest challenge right now is that the physics of the original Super Mario Bros. and New Super Mario Bros. are very different. So, people who are used to today's Mario games might have a hard time with the original if they're not accustomed to it. With Mario Maker, the retro Mario style looks that way visually, but the controls are a little bit closer to today's Marios.

I have a feeling that if I make the original Mario style content control like the original Mario, people used to current Mario may not enjoy it. So, we haven't carried those exact physics over. Yet there are parts, of course, that I don't want to let go, that I want to continue.

Nintendo Reports Loss on Shaky Wii U Sales
TOKYO — Jul 30, 2014, 6:23 AM ET
By YURI KAGEYAMA AP Business Writer
Associated Press

Nintendo Co. sank to a worse-than-expected loss for the fiscal first quarter on lagging Wii U and 3DS video-game machine sales.

But the Japanese company behind Super Mario and Pokemon games stuck to its annual forecasts Wednesday for a 20 billion yen ($196 million) profit on 590 billion yen ($5.8 billion) sales.

Kyoto-based Nintendo reported a 9.92 billion yen ($97.3 million) April-June loss compared with an 8.62 billion yen profit a year earlier.

Quarterly sales totaled 74.695 billion yen ($732.3 million), down 8 percent from a year earlier.

Nintendo has been fighting to maintain profits amid competition from games and social media apps on smartphones and other mobile devices. The company also faces competition from rivals Sony Corp. and Microsoft Corp., which are aggressively pushing their game machines with holiday shoppers.

N
