    Response. Three 3rd Party Companies the NX Needs Full Support From: "LOL"

    Capcom's not really a big deal. You'll probably still get your Resident Evil and Monster Hunter games. Those two IP’s have a history of being on Nintendo platforms. As Nintendo doesn't really have much of a sports genre, EA Sports is a BIG priority. Sports games sell and based on monthly NPD...

    Hironobu Sakaguchi was asked if he ever considered working with Tetsuya Takahashi again

    So apparently Terra Battle Wikia community members asked some questions for Hironobu Sakaguchi about his upcoming project. One question asked if he ever considered a collaboration together with Tetsuya Takahashi, creator of the Xeno games. I've personally enjoyed The Last Story and when I beat...

    Watch Dogs is Ubisoft's last mature game for Wii U

    We’re talking about games that are dark and gritty and focus on photo-realism. Zelda doesn’t put a strong emphasis on that at all. The new Zelda so far looks light hearted and has an art style that is bright and cartoony. And personally, I don't think Skyrim and Dark Souls are "Nintendo...

    Sony can't figure out why the PS4 is selling so well

    Of course they know. By creating a console traditional gamers want and painting this picture that the PS4 is a return to the glory days of gaming, you're going to get a lot of people excited. After last generation, they know damn well people want a return to the PSX and PS2 era so why not...

    Watch Dogs is Ubisoft's last mature game for Wii U

    Not surprised. Games like Watch Dogs, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty, Grand Theft Auto, Skyrim and the like make zero sense on a Nintendo platform as their target demographic are families and children. Nintendo is just wasting their time trying to get them If Nintendo wants those types of games...

    Eurogamer : Nintendo wins E3 2014

    1st and 3rd party software are all the same. No reason to split the two up really. Besides hardcore gaming enthusiasts who post on gaming forums. Do people really look at it like that? I think ultimately, consumers are more concerned and focused on finding software that appeals to them. Not...

    Post your controversial gaming opinion!

    Cinematic games make me think that game designers would rather be movie directors instead. Game mechanics take a hit in favor of amazing visuals and presentation. Games have yet to find their own unique identity when it comes to storytelling. They mostly imitate the movie industry. 'Fickle'...

    Play Nintendo: New Games, New Events and Live, Nonstop Programming on Tap for E3 2014

    Can't blame them for not doing a press event. Then again E3 is a show for retailers. Personally I'm fine with this. All I simply want is information about upcoming games. Straight to the point. None of this other nonsense.

    What is Retro Studios REALLY up to?

    There is really no reason for that to be an issue now. They've moved into a new building and have been hiring and growing. Plus, Nintendo SPD Group 3 will have their back and make sure things are going smoothly. If they don't have enough help, then they'll outsource.

    Square Enix: Hitman lost players by seeking mass appeal

    Matsuda changing strategies like this so quickly suggests that he doesn't seem to have a clear vision and know how to lead this company. "The development team for Hitman: Absolution really struggled in this regard. They implemented a vast amount of 'elements for the mass' instead of for the...

    The 25 and older thread

    Good times. I was young but my uncle and cousin bought all the good stuff during the 90's so I didn't miss out on all the great NES and SNES games. First Nintendo Power was issue 28 with Super Mario World on the cover. Gaming news was always a monthly thing back then. Not daily like it is now...

    Official Super Smash Brothers Wii U/3DS Thread

    If there should be one more third party character, it should be Simon Belmont. Like Mega Man, Castlevania has a long and strong history with Nintendo. Plus there isn't really a character that uses a whip for a weapon. The closest would be Zero Suit Samus. I'd axe Solid Snake cause he's only...

    Retro Studios Still Has The Magic – But For What?

    Then a better question to ask is if Retro Studios can keep making high quality titles. Not if they can keep making AAA ones. Especially if we're going to question if DKC:TF is AAA or not.

    Criterion founders launch Three Fields Entertainment

    He should have a much easier time with Nintendo since he's indie. Hopefully he understands that how Nintendo deals with big 3rd party publishers like EA and indie developers are two different things.

    Retro Studios Still Has The Magic – But For What?

    Do projects have to be "AAA" in order to be high quality? Plus I think some of us are ignoring the importance of Nintendo SPD Group 3. The oversee all of Retro's efforts and have a pretty damn good track record of all the projects they've worked on. SPD Group 2 is another.

    What companies should Nintendo partner with?

    Platinum Games easily. Shit, I'd get on their good side and then buy them. They could handle the action genre side of things and fulfill that need. They could have Bayonetta become a regular, which would be Nintendo's answer to games like Ninja Gaiden and Devil May Cry. They can work on Nintendo...

    Retro Studios Still Has The Magic – But For What?

    It doesn't matter what Retro Studios works on. People will still bitch about it. All things have been covered. People will bitch if it's not Metroid. People will bitch if it's not a new IP. People will bitch if it's not a different Nintendo IP. It's not going to get any better. We're talking...
