  1. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — 7th December 2018

    At least my logic is logical!
  2. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — 7th December 2018

    No, still not convinced. In that case he’s the Super Smash Bros Link incarnation that put on the tunic from BotW Link and decided to use some of his moves. He’s obviously a veteran fighter or he wouldn’t have been in the background when Inkling Girl was invited to join. So; N64 it is!
  3. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — 7th December 2018

    And who says Fludd Mario, Mansion Busting Luigi or Giga Bowser aren’t different incarnations of their earlier outages?! A tweaked moveset or alternate outfit isn’t enough to pursuade me. How about BotW Link’s character spot being identicaly numbered to his representation from the original N64 Smash and onward?
  4. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — 7th December 2018

    So what you’re actually saying is that Sakurai (and Nintendo) are lying when they’re saying everyone is back. And that this Link isn’t a veteran fighter and his character slot number is incorrect. Nice try buddy, now try again!
  5. Nintendo Switch paid online coming 2018

    I think Nintencan but Nintenwont...
  6. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — 7th December 2018

    I can agree with most of it, but why have you placed BotW Link under Wii U while you placed a modern iteration of let’s say Pac Man under Arcade? It’s still Link just with a different outfit, right?

    In that case I’m happy it isn’t rainy today or we’d be getting a sequel called Golden Rain....

    Nintendo obviously understand the importance of voice chat.

    On the other hand, Nintendo is very experienced when it comes to swimming against the current But yeah, it’s very interesting to see if their approach will make them succesfull in the mobile space.

    I think Miyamoto’s quote wasn’t intended as critisising other companies though. I read it as evaluating their own efforts up to this point. They experimented with different models and want to move forward with a model that didn’t make them the most money because they believe they can make a different model into a success. It’ll be interesting to see if they can make a part of the mobile gamers move in the same direction.

    Yes, but that's exactly my point; the target market for a game (or even console) is different and every piece of software or hardware makes for a different market strategy. I'm relatively sure both Rockstar and Nintendo in the first place are in this game for the money

    I bought it at €59,99 which was the RRP here. Was it a budget title in the UK? Didn't know that. -EDIT- Just Googled it and you're right! I clearly got screwed over by a retailer then! :')
  13. General Switch Discussion

    You make a good point, but Captain Toad doesn't release full price. It's €39,99 instead of €59,99 #nitpicking In the end it's all down to mass market analytics; the consumers decide the worth of your product by buying it, or not. Nintendo (first party) software typically doesn't drop in price until games get the Nintendo Select treatment (usually after set number of sales). Games that bomb do get dropped in price a lot though (Mario Tennis Ultra Smash, Star Fox Zero and Codename S.T.E.A.M. are good examples). Sure, for an individual consumer this can be annoying because you feel and older game should be cheaper, but then again you don't have to buy it. A lot of other consumers don't seem to care though. That's also one of the reasons most first party Nintendo titles have such a high value on the second hand market. -EDIT- Oh, and let's not forget the target demographic; a lot of Nintendo software is bought by families for kids. Those families don't need a game on release but most of the time buy them as a gift for let's say their child's birthday or holiday. That's a reason Nintendo doesn't need to lower some prices, their titles often keep sales momentum for a longer period of time.

    No, in an ideal world the consumer shouldn’t pay for a company’s fault. I was coming from a business point of view. And no again, your list was basicaly something I agree with, someone else stated (was it @Sheikah maybe?) that only Nintendo sell ports of last generation titles for full price. That’s obviously no true. Personaly I’m no fan of all the Wii U ports as I owned all of them and am dying for some original first party games, but I can understand it from a business point of view.
  15. General Switch Discussion

    I think Nintendo needs to sell their ports for full price because they didn’t make enough money on these games when they released on Wii U. They lost a lot of money and this is a way to make up for that loss. I only double dipped with Mario Kart because I want to have that game on my Switch. I also saw someone make a statement about Nintendo being the only company selling ports for full price. That’s blatantly not true though; when PS4/X1 launched a lot of their launch line ups consisted of PS3/X360 ports for full price. Remakes/ports/collections of games that are a lot older (say 2 generations old) sometimes go full price and sometimes a lot cheaper. I don’t see a business standard that’s typical for any of the manufacturers. They all sometimes sell for less than the original game and sometimes the current market price for a new game.
