  • Madmangamer364 posted a message in the forum topic Wii U/3DS software sales: NPD Group. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    @thedude-: I agree that Nintendo could benefit from exclusive software; the problem is that apps like WWE Network and HBO Go, as @bunchanumbers pointed out, wouldn't come close to fitting that mold. T...

    @Sepewrath: First off, the PS3 struggled because it was too expensive and had trouble getting games to work on it. Granted, the Wii U could claim the latter to the degree, but the system has never ha...

    @bunchanumbers: I wouldn't go as far as to say it will be a million-seller, but the numbers are not bad, really. It's actually selling better than I thought it would at this point. Congrats to the To...

    @Sepewrath: Twilight Princess was very successful, yes, but it was also a heavily-hyped game that ended up being a two-platform title, one of which happens to be the insanely popular Wii. That's not t...

    @sonic_spark said: @Litchie said: Not sure. Maybe because they sell good despite being horrible, so they don't have to waste time making them better. Mario has always been a lot better. Sonic have ha...

  • Madmangamer364 posted a message in the forum topic This Is What The First Half of 2015 Looks Like For Nintendo. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    Looks to me like lineups from a couple of tired platforms at this point. As someone that doesn't own either the 3DS or Wii U at the moment, there isn't a game on the list that further entices me to ge...

  • Madmangamer364 posted a message in the forum topic So I got the Last Story for Christmas....... on the Nintendo Discussion board

    I recall enjoying The Last Story. There was certainly potential for a much better game if future installments were ever in the works, but that doesn't change the fact that the game managed to be a go...

  • Madmangamer364 posted a message in the forum topic What if the next Nintendo handheld doesn't have a screen?. on the Nintendo Discussion board

    Pass. Even if a lot of people are playing games on phones nowadays (and frankly, I'm not mad at them for doing so), I don't think the idea of selling a glorified controller as a system works as a port...

    As someone who just picked up his first Amiibo figure recently (Smash Bros. Kirby) and doesn't have either a Wii U or a 3DS, I can say that the figures currently are just nice collector's items for me...

    @KBFloYd: The technical gap between the Wii U and its competition is no greater than it was doing the Wii era and the consoles it competed against; heck, the Wii U's gap is probably a lot smaller. Ha...

    So subjective and one-sided... it's only a "better value" if your preference is Nintendo games and very little else. Even then, the Wii U struggles with the pace of previous Nintendo consoles. Otherwi...
