  • @Kuchiri That’s just absolutely and 100% false. Look up the sales data provided by Nintendo in their quarterly reports, and the sales figures from Sony and Microsoft. The market is most definitely not going for the Wii U.

    Does the Wii U have the best exclusives? Possibly. But the system is not selling well. Even Iwata has stated as much…[Read more]

  • The problem with the money in the bank argument is that stockholders expect the company to be making money. If they don’t make money, people at the top lose their jobs. The company will not go out of business if they continue on their current path, but people will be fired.

    As for the rest of your comments, I mostly agree. I bought the Wii…[Read more]

    • The market as a whole right now is going all for Wii U because Xbox One and PS4 haven’t had a hit yet that wasn’t marked with any negatives.

      The Wii U is currently king of this console war. It’s starting to feel like you are talking about the original Wii against the Xbox 360 and PS3. If not that, your mindset is stuck back there.

  • @Smashbroslink If everyone knows that Sega went out of hardware because of trying to buck the console cycle, everyone would be wrong. At least partially.

    Did Sega’s 32X and CD hurt consumer confidence? Yes, but not enough to prevent the Dreamcast from having a successful launch. There were many other factors that led to Sega dropping out of…[Read more]

  • The major developers will generally design for a new platform, just to test it. Ubisoft at least would definitely try it, because they’ve supported basically every machine at launch.

    Assuming the power was in line with other systems, it would be easier to develop for. Nintendo could also switch their system’s architecture to be more similar…[Read more]

    • While other consoles had six or more years of full support. Developers are now looking at the Nintendo for potential of growth since the Xbox One and PS4 can’t do a release without completely failing. Most consoles take one or two years to start up anyways then they get three to four years of good sales. The Dreamcast was pulled right when it was…[Read more]

  • I respectfully disagree with your respectful disagreement :). While 2014’s lineup was certainly amazing (Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, and Smash were among the best games of the year), they didn’t boost Wii U hardware enough to compete with its rivals. The 2015 lineup does not look as strong in terms of system selling potential, even if it may be…[Read more]

    • And would Nintendo get third party support if they up and create a new console thus forcing developers that want to be on Nintendo to learn how to make games on a different engine. If Nintendo releases a new console and keeps the same core engine of the Wii U then Nintendo will be castrated with people asking ‘Why did you create a new console if…[Read more]

    Since this is the internet, and fans get very sensitive about these things, I’ll start by saying that I enjoy my Wii U.  It is the only current gen console I own as of now, and its 2014 lineup wreaked havoc on […]

    • I respectfully disagree with this.

      Nintendo rocked 2014, and with even bigger first party titles coming out this year and 2016 if they release a new console they will alienate half of their customers. They have a gold mine right now and we probably shouldn’t need to see a new console until 2018 at the earliest. The XBox 360 after their first…[Read more]

    So, you’ve upgraded from your now obsolete model 3DS, and you’ve noticed that 3D is actually pretty cool when moving the system a centimeter doesn’t ruin it.  Or, maybe you’re just happy to have a second […]

    If the internet isn’t happy about something, they’ll let you know about.  Nintendo has been on the receiving end of a virtual tongue lashing for two recent decisions regarding their New 3DS line.  One criticism, […]

  • I was lucky enough to snag a code for the demo of Super Smash Bros. for 3DS.  Needless to say, all unessential activities have been put temporarily on hold.  If you weren’t fortunate enough to snag a code, here are some impressions to hold you over till the 19th.

    After its humble blocky N64 origins, Smash has become a graphical…[Read more]

  • After what may be the rockiest console launch in history, the Wii U is finally starting to gain some traction.  Mario Kart 8’s effect on the console has been nothing short of remarkable, and has shown that there might be light yet at the end of the tunnel.  While I love my Wii U, there is still a ton of work that must be done for the system.  …[Read more]

  • I originally thought the ending of ME2 would have had large scale ramifications, but turns out saving the reaper base doesn’t do much. Cerberus hates you either way, and it just makes the control ending a little easier.

    I get your examples of how the choices could be used to impact the ending, but I don’t think the technology is there yet. The…[Read more]

    Mass Effect 3 was released nearly two years ago and was one of the finest games ever crafted…….. right up until the last 5 minutes.  For many gamers, a thoroughly amazing trilogy was decimated in 5 minutes of star child babble. Even an updated ending in the form of free DLC was not enough to ease gamers’ reactions.  I’m not here to…[Read more]

  • There are very few games that get moral choices right. The one game I could think of that did a good job in this regard is Catherine.

  • 3DS-It-Prints-Money
    Soon after the 3DS launch, I glanced disappointingly towards the dust covered 3DS sitting on my desk.  I wanted desperately to enjoy the system that I paid 250 dollars for, but the games weren’t there.  How many times could I play the same missions in Pilot Wings?  How many rounds of Street Fighter IV could I play?

    Fast forward to about 3…[Read more]

  • Ugh. Microsoft’s conferences have been tear inducingly boring for the past 3 years now. They usually show off some good stuff, but they need to learn that less is more. They need to…

  • Well, sorry you didn’t enjoy it.

  • I’m not sure how you got that from the article. The article was talking about how the media has proclaimed doom for just about every system that has come out at even the slightest hint of trouble.*shrugs* Maybe […]

  • @dirkster’s first comment. Hmmm… There is a delicate balance between creating a title that is interesting enough to get people’s attention without having it be too sensationalist. I had a few titles before I […]

    It wasn’t too long ago that the frontpage of N4G was flooded with articles about the Wii U and its inevitable downfall.  The gaming media and its followers loved to watch the Wii U flounder, but the Wii U has […]

    Recently I’ve had a chance to play Rayman Legends on the PS4 and XBox One, and let’s just say that there were some clear visual differences.  The PS4 version featured far better resolution.  The XBox One […]
