Thursday Chat: April 3


It's Thursday, how exciting.

Anyway, a lot of the talk in the world of gaming has been about PS4 and Xbox One, especially with E3 just around the corner. But there seems to be one company that everyone has forgotten about, Nintendo.


It's been a while since we've heard from Nintendo really, but with a new month, perhaps we'll soon be hearing more. How well would a new Nintendo Direct and some new announcements go down right now?

Also, what about E3? Mario Kart 8 we'll know by then just how well it's performed in its opening weeks. It's doubtful that Mario Kart 8 will spark a race to buy consoles in their millions, so in this respect what will it take from Nintendo at E3 to respark the fortunes of the Wii U?

Let's Chat!

Nintenwho?

Nintendo has announced a few things in the last few days which makes me think that there may not be an April Direct and they are gearing up to announce everything at E3.

Nintendo need to stick to handhelds.
JoeToots 8 months ago
I am not sure what Nintendo can release to sell more Wii U's all I can think there is left is a new Zelda game as Kart and Smash bros are on there way. They could do with some Nintendo only RPGs on the system that might pick up a little interest.
Bindiana 8 months ago
There is one game that would sell a lot of Wii U consoles if Ninty funded it & that is Shenmue 3
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Megaten X Fire Emblem is in development. I'm sure that will sell a good bit of consoles
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Decided i'm going to get the disk version of trials fusion!
JoeToots 8 months ago
Why is the disk version about double the price?
Zombieflamingo 8 months ago
has anybody seen anything of Megaten X Fire Emblem not heard much about it for ages.
Bindiana 8 months ago
includes the season pass which is £16 seperate
JoeToots 8 months ago
That makes sense then.
Zombieflamingo 8 months ago
It is Atlus & Nintendo, don't think you will hear anything about it till a few months before release
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Would SEGA buying Atlus have any effect on it?
Bindiana 8 months ago
I am still waiting for them to release SMT IV over here,
Zombieflamingo 8 months ago
No, SEGA have already said that they will leave Atlus to do there own thing & that Atlus can pick any IP the SEGA owns to work on
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
NISA has the European distribution for SMT IV don't they? Wondering if the the buyout has messed that up
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
It may have been, just seems strange that there has been no mention of it recently.

Smash brothers along with Zelda are the only two games that could entice me to grab a Wii U. And with Smash Brothers having a port on the 3DS I'll just pick it up for that instead. It's a shame for Nintendo and the struggles they're facing, as I have a lot of fond memories of gaming with them

Kaysar lets be honest though they're only struggling in the console market but totally dominate the handheld market.
JoeToots 8 months ago
Both version of Smash Bros have different stages & the 3DS won't have online play. That version is really only for local play
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Also it wouldn't be a stretch to think that each version will have exclusive characters (That is just a guess)
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Oh yes, they dominate the handheld world. The issue is, will their console losses impact on the company to a degree that it threatens their handheld domination? I certainly hope not. And yeah, I appreciate the 3DS version will be inferior (or at least different) to the console version. But the fact I can get a version on my 3DS gives me less inclination to fork out for a Wii U. Although when I finally scrap the cash together for a new console, I will weigh it up against the Xbox One, anyway.
Kaysar 8 months ago
Smash Online will be too much for you to pass up & you know it
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Yes, but my bank balance currently doesn't so not so loud ;-)
Kaysar 8 months ago
Ha! Hopefully Ninty do a Smash branded Wii U in the run up to release
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Hopefully not..

I'm really unsure about wolfenstein! never played one in my life but it looks intresting but it looks like it hinders you for using the iron sight.
JoeToots 8 months ago
It's Wolfenstein, why the hell would you want to ADS
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
That's like asking for Doom, Painkiller or Unreal Tournament to add the ability to ADS
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
Bear in mind he has said he has never played one. Its not so much about taking cover in modern shooters as it is just all out action.
Zombieflamingo 8 months ago
to be fair i enjoyed halo and RB6V which both i never used ADS in. Zombie it's ok i expected a comment like that from Nox he never sees things from other peoples point of view.
JoeToots 8 months ago
also never played DOOM painkiller or unreal tournament.

Going back to Wii U. Does anybody use HMV anymore went in my local one at lunch time and they dont even sell Wii U games now or 3DS games all they had were PS3, PS4 Xbox 360, Xbox One and a couple Vita games.
Bindiana 8 months ago
Its the same in my local Game the majority of Wii U games are there as boxes with an availabe to order sticker on them.
Zombieflamingo 8 months ago
That's why you need to start dealing in X1 games on your store Bin ;)
JoeToots 8 months ago
didnt even know HMV still had physical stores, thought it was all online when they went into administation

I cannot wait for the new Mario Kart, one of my most anticipated games for this year. Also hoping to hear some good things from Microsoft, news on exclusives, Forza Horizon 2 would be nice and word has it they are thinking about bringing back the "10 friends/family sharing" feature. Also hoping to hear some news from Codemasters, again rumours that they are working on a new "next gen" Touring Car title, DiRT 4 and F1 2014 on next gen.
Old Timer 8 months ago
I thought most people from our generation have at least played Unreal Tournament
Loli-Nox-Tan 8 months ago
@jay When HMV went into administration the online store went and hasnt come back there was talk that it was coming back. Last couple of years they seemed half arsed about games. @ Joe you getting itchy fingers got to many games haha hopefully should start this month will look into it
Bindiana 8 months ago
I've for the first time in ages hit 10 hard copies of games haha
JoeToots 8 months ago
