Feels more like an Square Enix win to me rather than a Nintendo Vs Sony one but w/e awesome! and nintendo acts like they don't need 3rd party developers for their home consoles!

Didn't the Wii U also sell about 3 million during its first holiday season?

It probably did. No games = no sales. I would expect that things picked up somewhat this November, though. I'm only seeing Nintendoland bundles at stores, which is a good sign that they are at least moving the few units they had with quality games bundled.

I can't wait to get Bravely Default. That Ys has me thinking of getting a Vita instead of a second 3DS XL.

Every tiny little victory shouted from the rooftops. You are Pompeii, watching as Vesuvius splutters its guts onto your fair city and you're shouting "look Rome! our pot plants are immaculate!"

#23 Edited by lamprey263 (25650 posts) -

Haven't heard of it, looks good though from what I'm seeing on YouTube and the reviews, might pick it up even though I won't be able to play it for a while, but pick it up since acquiring new copies of 3DS JRPGs tends to be hard if you don't try getting them while you can.

If it hasn't come out yet I'll go pre-order it.

#24 Posted by AppleFan1991 (3225 posts) -

Wait Metacritic counts again? I thought it didn't for games like Killzone and Knack? I'm so confused....

Nice to see sheep haven't given up hope completely. The WiiU is still a sad joke though lol.

Hope you cant wait for microtransactions in a full priced game as well.

I was going to buy it till I found out about that. Now I will be buying the game used as I don't want to give anyone my money and support shit like that.

Sure, and that is when you can make an unqualified statement like that and actually have it hold true.

Metacritic really doesn't do much at all to make those games look better. It really only enforces that Killzone is good but not great and Knack is bad.

Microtransactions don't bother me. I simply don't buy anything and beat the game the old fashioned way.

#36 Posted by Shinobishyguy (22651 posts) -

@Gargus: you could just buy the game and ignore the microtranactions.

Wait who am I kidding, you wouldn't have ammo to bash the game with other wise

PS1 won, PS2 won, PS3 didn't, PSP didn't, PS4 isn't, PS VITA isn't.

Soooo 2/6 by my count.

I was illustrating by buying that game you encourage microtransactions in games.

But that's the same approach people took about DLC when it came out and now we have games being divided up before they even launch, endings cut to be sold later and so on. So buy it if you want but in a few years when games get more and more invasive with microtransactions just remember you encouraged it by giving companies that promote it your money. So youll have no room to ever complain about them.

Did I try and bash the game itself? No I didn't at all.

If you had actually bothered to read what I said instead of just inventing things simply so you could bash me you would have noticed I said I would be buying the game, I just wouldn't buy it new so I don't give the developers my money because of the microtransactions.

I mean come on, I typed just a few sentences, you couldn't read and comprehend that little before replying? Sounds like youre the one with bashing issues and not me.

At least you can avoid it and still enjoy the game, regardless (which, looking back, I was probably hard on TR 2013 for pulling the same stunt).

#41 Edited by Shinobishyguy (22651 posts) -

@Gargus: Holy shit could you be more dense? 90% of your posts are just you throwing a bitchfit about nintendo regurgitating their IPs. Heres an original IP and lo and behold you dismiss it because of microtransactions that aren't even essential to completing the game.

"I'll buy it used" you say? Have fun ensuring that it's sequel never gets localized you prick
