All About starfox15
WTF's a blog? This just me ragging on about my life and B.S. like that? Well if thats the case, (and I think it is) I just really like video games. I grew up with them and they're a big part of my life. Nintendo.
Nintendo has had a very good run on the handheld market. Standing basically unopposed for much of it's existence, the gameboy line and the ds line have had a very long and successful history. This is in no small part to Nintendo's ability to constantly reinvigorate it's system with must-have titles, a very open market where anybody can play one, and offering them fairly cheaply.
So with all of this, why do I still know deep down that Nintendo is not going to be viable as a handheld creator unless it accepts what is coming and moves into new territory?
I'm not saying that Nintendo should make a phone, as amazingly cool as that would be, but maybe something more than a phone or handheld.
At this point and for probably the next few years, Nintendo will probably go unchallenged again except from the iPhone, which will continue to pick up steam and grow while the Nintendo handheld crowd will continue to dwindle.
I say this as a lover of the Nintendo handhelds and as a supporter of Nintendo. I love the company and I'm excited for it's future, but it's time for them to come to grips with necessary realities and catch them now rather than play catch-up tomorrow.
1up.com has a good article about this that does a good job summing up some points.
Well, ignoring my last blog post, I've decided to buy the collectors edition of Diablo 3. Worst case scenario, I'll at least get a copy of D2 and LOD on an amazing USB.
I'm happy to see it's not a subscription game, and I'm looking forward to playing this game for years to come.
I just hope they didn't screw it it up.
"Some people either misunderstood or just flat out don't want money to be involved at all. My general response is if they didn't think real money was involved in Diablo 2, they were fooling themselves. Because it absolutely was. And it didn't ruin that game, so we don't believe it will ruin Diablo 3." -Game director Jay Wilson.
Money spent on Diablo 2: $30 to purchase the game. (Used, from one of my cousins.) I completed it, got some of the best items in the game, and had a generally awesome playing the game with friends. I've never not gotten a character to hell and beaten it. The only thing that bothered me was the pvp morons who always ran around naked with their cash paid items. To hear something like this from the actual staff that are making this game is not only offensive, its disappointing.
