If Nintendo made bad business decisions then why are they still in business and posting profits? People just don't understand that the Wii-U isn't supposed to compete with other consoles. If it really upsets you so much, maybe you are the fanboy?
>>283718795 >nintendo shilling 10x worse than S$ or M$ You can't actually believe this? Nintendo BARELY does a miniscule amount of DLC and everyone here can't wait to jump down their throats. But I guess it's okay when MicroSony does it
>>283717464 I always get the impression that the only people hating Nintendo are fanboys or casuals pretending to be hardcore. What other kind of retard even goes on a crusade against a company just because they're not making "muh grimdark mature gaymes"?
>>283719002 I will be willing to sacrifice myself to purge planet earth of /v/.
Hell, i'd willingly trade my soul and rot in hell forever if it meant finally destroying /v/ and making sure the board would never pop up ever again and that the filth here couldn't taint the planet ever again, that's how much i hate you fucks.
If anyone ever believed Nintendo was a good company, I hope these past couple of years is the final nail in the coffin for that belief.
A lot of you are too young to remember, but this has been Nintendo's pattern for years. They seem to be doing good things as the industry gets shittier and they don't change with it, but really they're just behind on the times. It doesn't come from some moral high ground that they adhere to, it's due to incompetence.
And once they get into whatever shitty business practice that they fell behind on, they become the worst of the bunch.
Listening to drones claim that Nintendo doesn't do DLC or Micro-transactions was always fun, because I knew it was only a matter of time before they become the kings of those things.
>>283719175 the difference is that Nintendo representitives have stated that they would NEVER EVER do DLC and that it was a vile practice to ship an unfinished game. At least personally the hypocrisy is worse than DLC which I don't mind.
>Nintendo dies >All little kiddies that have nintendo systems go to Sony and Microsoft >5000000 little kids screaming and crying on Xbox and PS4 >Steam is overflooded with annoying "i fukd ur mum" discussions
Talented people don't need to lose steady jobs but they need a big fucking set-back where they make a new IP. And by new IP I don't mean something like Smash again because that's just re-hashing old characters.
>>283720114 Why do Nintendrones act like they're the only people on /v/ who have to deal with shit-posting? If anything, you fuckers cop the least shit compared to everyone else. You even get the mods being biased and taking your side.
>>283720086 Nintendrones are too obnoxious and self-righteous to move onto another platform. They'd just stick to their old Nintendo consoles replaying all the Mario, Smash, and Mario Kart games while reminiscing over "The good old days"
>>283720367 It's just too elaborate for kids to follow. I never really got why grown men are getting so worked up about it, mainly because the parents can just tell their kid to stay the fuck away from the system until they've finished. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CTufj1zC5vA
>>283717464 >they've made poor business decision after poor business decision But they're literally turning profits each quarter. The Wii U isn't setting the world on fire, but it's not losing them money. The loss the had the previous year was entirely related to them investing in a new building specifically to streamline future game development.
And funding Bayonetta 2, Wonderful 101, Smash 4, Captain Toad and Tropical Freeze has made me exceptionally happy in the last year alone, so fuck this bitch.
>>283720086 >>5000000 little kids screaming and crying on Xbox and PS4
kek implying this doesn't happen already.
>>283720515 Have you ever considered the possibility that people who own ONE gaming platform are a minority? And that people who are not biased/retarded see that all companies and all platforms have their fair amount of cool shit and bullshit alike? Probably not.
I hated them during the 90s, but they're so irrelevant that I can easily ignore them. If it weren't for baiters constantly bashing everyone else I wouldn't know they still existed. I get mildly annoyed when the 3ds gets a completely nonsensical release like x zone because it forces me to buy hardware that I otherwise don't use, but that's quite a petty thing to hate an entire company for.
>>283721025 No one cares what you call Neogaf, the only only people on /v/ who ever go there are the people who complain about Neogaf. /v/ gets called Nintendogaf because it's basically the Nintendo equivalent of Neogaf.
That's the exact opposite of the truth, though. TP gets shit on nonstop in every thread, especially the visuals. Compare to WW's which are constantly put on a pedestal as "ageless" and "comfy", and pointed to as an example of great design.
>>283721842 /v/ has both obnoxious WW fans and obnoxious TP fans, it's just random which fills up a given thread. While you keep running into WWfags, I keep running into people still mad about Spaceworld.
>>283717464 I hold a ton of respect for nintendo for what they did back in the days of the NES and pretty much up until the end of the N64's lifetime, but it's all counteracted by all the bullshit they've been pulling recently. So I won't say I hate them, I kinda consider my opinion on them neutral
>>283717464 Nintendo's war chest is scary. They could make "bad decisions" for the rest of my life and stay in business.
The whole Wii U is a souped up Wii is a souped up GC thing is relentlessly funny, but it means their R&D was basically playing ping pong for three generations. Even the prototype of the Wii U tablet was a screen with Wiimotes glued to the sides.
For the amount of money they make, they barely employ anyone. They cut corners like a ball factory. Don't expect the company to fold just because one generation didn't sell gangbusters. They're full bunker mode waiting for MS and Sony to spend each other into bankruptcy in a game of multi-million dollar flop chicken. Seriously, the new CEO of MS doesn't even consider the brand part of the company's "core." And Sony fucked up so bad they had to sell their HQ.
Meanwhile, Amiibos. I don't even like Nintendo. I'm just forced to believe they're run by Yakuza super accountants.
>>283717464 A lot of their business decisions have been shit for over a decade, now more than ever, but they do still make some really fun games. Do they need to be accountable for their shit? Yes. Is their shit excusable? It shouldn't be. Do they deserve to die as a company? No, and they won't for quite some time.
>>283721330 Yeah sure it is. I'm guessing you don't remember things like 8.8 or the bans during Japan Time when people when into other threads and started shouting Dojo announcements, i could definitely keep going but i don't need to justify anything to a single person on here.
Nintendo has always been in a very frustrating situation, what's even more frustrating is how ignorant people treat their situation so carelessly.
>>283717464 I don't hate any video game company, but Nintendo does a lot of stuff I disagree with. Here's just a few:
>Still region locking >Price of video games doesn't drop for years >Withholding the release of the N3DS to try and sell more Old 3DS's. >No real reason to buy the New 3DS unless you want to play one single game, at which point it is a must. >WiiU lacking any third party support >WiiU forcing you to use ugly WiiPad >WiiPad worse than the (optional) Vita in every single way. >WiiPad forces the console to be more expensive than it should be by a minimum of 100 dollars >Wii mote is the worst controller ever released.
Personally, I don't really care about any of that stuff though, because I have no intention of buying any of it. Why would I hate something that I have the option to avoid entirely?
>>283719124 And for good reason? While the 8th gen is so far THE worst generation of all fucking time, the wii U and nintendo in general still try. Just LOOK at this. http://www.vgchartz.com/platform/69/playstation-4/ This is fucking sad. Nintendo is the only thing left we have that makes good video games. That is why nintendo "gets a free pass". Not saying they are perfect. Fuck no. SS happened, other m happened, brawl happened, smash 4 happened. Amiibos happened. But they are by far the lesser evil. By very far.
>>283718057 Isn't this just reinforcing the validity of "SonyGAF" though? I mean, if I thought NeoGAF was an impartial place to discuss video games that wasn't totally biased for Sony, I'd argue against using the term at all. Calling another place NintendoGAF is like saying "NO YOU!!"
>>283731409 You say that, but you're wrong. Good video games are still getting released on PC, as well as multiplats. Multiplats, I might add, that aren't available to the WiiU.
Alien Isolation comes to mind, as does Final Fantasy XV and Persona 5. I also enjoyed the shit out of Drakengard 3, Assassin's Creed Black Flag, and Metal Gear Rising (which, I believe a sequel is in the works). No idea when these games released, but I wait until the game drops to under 20 bucks to purchase them.
Certainly more enjoyable to me than the thought of another Super Smash Bros (already have 3, and I like them, don't need another), Mario Kart (already have 4, and I like them, don't need another), Mario Bros (already have plenty).
The only thing on the WiiU I'm interested in is Xenoblade Chronicles X, and if that game is any good, it will find its way to another platform/handheld eventually, just like Xenoblade Chronicles is.
>>283717464 certainly not /v/. there is more nintendo marketing on /v/ than everyone else combined.
- hourly doll threads - hourly maryoh kart threads (belongs on vg) - hourly club shilltendo threads
/v/ is absolutely infested with nintendo marketing. even reddit doesn't put up with this garbage (and don't worry about telling me to go back2reddit (lol epic meem amirite? XDDDD), i already have both open.
>>283732053 As someone who's owned every console, handheld and multiple PCs since 6th gen, Nintendo and PC do complement each other very nicely. Though obviously if you were forced to go with just one, it would be PC.
I'd hate to be so poor that I'm forced to just one, though
I don't think they are any better than Sony and MS and that's turning out to be some sort of criminal offence here.
I think most of it just comes from the bullshit the Nintendrones post here constantly though. The console war between Sony and Nintendo is really tiring and kills genuine threads about gameplay. If I have to see another Twin Snakes thread I might just fucking snap.
>people claim /v/ is NintendoGaf after 2014 where every direct was shit on, constant Sony sales threads comparing Wii U sales, repetitive "HAHA THIS GAME DIDN'T SAVE THE WIIU LIKE YOU NINTENDRONES SAID IT WOULD" when no-one said it'd save anything and delusional "mods are nintendo" boogeyman complaints that outnumber the actual cases of people being banned. How the fuck can you have console war threads over the age of 12? Grow the fuck up and play with your digital toys more, you stupid fucks.
>>283732345 As an idort, I'm genuinely curious as to what games you play. 3DS rarely has releases and it's fucking annoying but the few games that get released are usually good. Vita gets releases more frequently but nearly all the games are sub par with few exceptions like YS and Danganronpa. I buy most Vita releases but haven't found a great many games to hook me on the system yet, please recommend something.
>>283733125 And how you say its Nintendrones? What proof do you have it's only Nintendo fans? I'm master race but you really have to be braindead to not see the fiasco The Order is. This is why /v/ voted Sony fans as the worst fanbase, your persecution complex is ridiculous.
>Still region locking why do you want to play shitty jap games >Price of video games doesn't drop for years quality baby! >Withholding the release of the N3DS to try and sell more Old 3DS's. >gotta have a strong business model >No real reason to buy the New 3DS unless you want to play one single game, at which point it is a must. xeno...fucking...blade >WiiU lacking any third party support lel who wants shitty shovelware shit >WiiU forcing you to use ugly WiiPad implying that screen isn't gorgeous >WiiPad worse than the (optional) Vita in every single way. vita? top fuckin kek. look at the sales, come back to me later. >WiiPad forces the console to be more expensive than it should be by a minimum of 100 dollars quality doesn't come cheap >Wii mote is the worst controller ever released. all these opinions
>>283733125 You know the are more people that can shitpost about it right? >PC master cucks >Xbots >Nintenfags Or simply the most common group >Shitposter with no loyalty to a fucking corporation and only want to fuck with fanboys
>>283733565 >And how you say its Nintendrones? What proof do you have it's only Nintendo fans? >This is why /v/ voted Sony fans as the worst fanbase, your persecution complex is ridiculous You're aware of this complete hypocrisy right? I'm not complaining about people making fun of the Order, I'm complaining about the thread spam. I know it's a shit game, everybody does. It's just they're making threads and trying to stir console-wars over it, but that's pointless because no one of /v/ is going to defend it.
Secondly, I say they're Nintendrones but most of the posts in those threads are Nintendo reaction images, and comparing The Order to Nintendo games.
I guess that would make sense if Nintendo's only defining trait was that they didn't make super dark games, but more notably they make underpowered hardware and keep reusing the same few franchises over and over again despite being one of the largest game companies in the world.
Some of those games are great and other companies certainly do this, but Nintendo is notable because they're fucking huge and could absolutely sink money and creativity into more interesting things.
I can't help but feel things sort of died off after the gamecube.
Also, most people on /v/ aren't on a crusade, fighting for a specific company or value. This idea was created by fans of certain companies so that when they're attacked they have a villain to pin everything on.
It's all just video games.
