Personally I prefer single player, story driven games only. I don't utilize multiplayer at all currently, and really don't care for it. I've noticed the last few years the shift towards online only games with no single player campaign at all, and I find that immensely troubling. There should ALWAYS be a single player campaign and one that doesn't require a purchase of an online service to use. Titanfall was a perfect example of this, I was looking forward to it until I found I had to pay to play. Same with Destiny and Star Wars Battlefront. Also, these games have a limited life, if they discontinue the online service. Bad move, should always include a single player element along with those who enjoy the online play.

Comment on Nintendo Outlines Release Dates Through 2015 by dpw74 http://www.nintendojo.com/news/nintendo-outlines-release-dates-through-2015#comment-31837 dpw74 Wed, 26 Aug 2015 16:01:11 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=146635#comment-31837 I guess we'll see what happens. Why would they release another version of the Wii U with no disc drive though? Is there a point since the Wii U is on its way out and is considered by some a failure? That makes no business sense, on top of how would you play your existing games on disc? This is why all these kids that think digital downloads are a good thing are completely stupid. You own nothing, and can't resell it. The way the game industry is going is not good. Nintendo has been pushing downloads for years now in subtle (and not so subtle ways) and it is NOT a good sign of things to come. I won't pay $60 to download a game, ever. That is a scam.

Why stock it when they can't sell games for it? It's not gonna happen for NX. A disc free console would have a very hard time with retailers. Why stock it when they can’t sell games for it?

Patent filing occurs early in the process, and I'm sure NX is pretty far along. It was suggested to me that this could be for a cheaper Wii U, which I do find more likely.

I wasn't going to get Fatal Frame, but that seems kind of sheisty that it's $50 but no physical release. All this news of Nintendo having no disc drive in the next system (if true) makes no sense to me. Are they trying to alienate fans even further? I want to own my games in physical form, not have them "licensed" to me after I've paid $50-60 for nothing but a download. Seems they are just handing the keys to the kingdom over to $ony. Hope I'm dead wrong. Well I’m excited for Mario Maker, Starfox, and Yoshi’s Woolly World. I wasn’t going to get Fatal Frame, but that seems kind of sheisty that it’s $50 but no physical release.

Comment on Nintendo Download: 08.20.2015 by penduin http://www.nintendojo.com/news/nintendo-download-08-20-2015#comment-31790 penduin Mon, 24 Aug 2015 18:21:13 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=146403#comment-31790 Gunstar Heroes made the modest little Genesis seem like it was a big bad Neo-Geo. I downloaded and played it on 3DS immediately when I saw it was out, and can confirm it plays and looks every bit as good today. Sega's 3D Classics team has nailed it once again, just as Treasure did. Gunstar Heroes made the modest little Genesis seem like it was a big bad Neo-Geo.

My personal favorite is the Nintendo DS version, the ability to save by closing the system is indescribably useful. Fans of RPG, adventure games and just video games in general must play this game.
