Tuesday Chat, July 9


Today's chat is about Nintendo. Are they living in the past by constantly trying to reinvent popular characters? Sure everyone loves Mario and friends, but surely there comes a time when it's time to say hello to some new faces?

Also how would you feel about classic Nintendo titles being released by the company on devices such as iOS and Android? Would you favour this? Do you think it could help Nintendo to rise to the top once again?

Let's Chat!

No, No & No. Why would you even fathom the idea

There is no XBO anymore, they cancelled it after realising it was confusing for the fans who kept buying the original xbox thinking they were getting a next gen early.

Nintendo are doing just fine. Living in the past? Who cares when they have a past that is so awesome. And they won't be allowing their IPs on any other devices, they already made that mistake once.

Nintendo aren't growing with the gamers they started with, like Naughty Dog do, they are focusing on the families and the children, like always, and that is working for them brilliantly. No point in making something to compete with the PS/Xbox as their not the same target audience, and making it cheap as possible brings in the people who can't afford the £500 games console.

I don't know about you but I can't think of anything from (Lets say) Twilight Princess that screams " Children"

My 8 year old cousin loved Twilight Princess, also note how they haven't built on the TP success and have moved back to Windwaker.

on other formats? no, that's daft. I don't want to play killzone on wii either. exclusive stuff is fine. but I want NEW stuff! The constant rehashing is leaving ninty feeling stale, in my opinion, and it'll take something monumental and groundbreaking to get me to buy a wiiu. especially with their obvious disdain for third party titles!

im going for a massive subject change and I will get some stick for this, as its an emotional day for me (dogs 3 year anniversary im going all soppy on your ass's) this is no longer just a shop for my games, its a place full of friends, ive made some really good friends on here and I hope 1 day to meet a few of you! the banter is great and the odd few of you have even had a good chat about life outside of gaming, thanks to the lot of you for filling my stressful day to day life with laughs and banter! couldn't go anywhere else to keep my days going, much love to all (and if you don't like this side of me, fuck off haha!)

I don't suffer from Hayfever, unless it is real bad then I get a slight throat tickle.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
I have the answer. Make a new Mario/Donkey Kong/Kid Icarus/F-Zero/Starfox/Ice Climbers/Metroid/Mother? game, take out the main character then shove in a new character and call it a new IP, maybe then people will quit talking about it

Indeed. Champinoship winners IMO. Only lost Figuerora and Kone too. Rognes a cracking talent from us too, just very injury prone sadly.

Indeed, but Owen Coyle knows the Championship now. Signed cracking players for that league(Holt, Fortune, Perch) to add on to who they have just now(McCarthy, McArthur, McManaman)

Nintendo always live in the past but that is what they're about and the hardcore fans love it. But at least now the Wii U drought is now over, with there being a game released roughly every month now. Shame the 'bigger' or more popular titles seem so far away, such as Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros.

Final Fantasy matches up with them. In terms of numbers too, most other games don't have the numbers that Zelda/Mario/Pokemon have.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

99 flake ice cream for £2.50 lol. One pulled up outside my house, went to it with what change I had, could only afford the cheapest cone possible, they've went up mental in price.
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
Loli-Nox-Tan 3 years ago
You taking about number of games?
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 3 years ago
With FF I'm talking quality and number. If you were to compare a singular Pokemon game/zelda/mario game, they'd have plenty of competition.

TL:DR - 4 lads end up getting drafted in by a mate to play in the Messi v Friends match. One of them scores an overhead kick that gets him on ESPN #1 play, and all these tv shows and crap. Another one gets the hole torn out him by Messi.

So how long till Sony is a third party to Nintendo? Because at this rate that is more likely than Nintendo putting their titles on the IOS. Nintendo are really living in their own little world these days, which is kinda good and bad. As long as they continue to pump out great quality games who cares about most of the other stuff.

Robichoico 3 years ago
ok so people suggest for me what to play. Got Castlevania on the PS3 and 3DS still to complete. Injustice pretty much sealed. Luigi U needs finihsing. As does Persona 4: Golden. Or I can do a 2nd playthrough of Bioshock Infinite. Or maybe just play more Hyperdimension Neptunia till Mario + Luigi arrive....hmmm
Loli-Nox-Tan's avatar
