Well, they'll try, the debate is whether it will work. My opinion on it is pretty simple: I hope not. I like their products and hope I can continue to do so. If not, I'll walk away with the stuff I have and be happy to play what I've got and live in how good the past was. And that applies to everybody, not just Nintendo.

Honestly, I live with retro movies and entertainment already. I'm fine with retro games also. There's still loads of great stuff I've either never touched or would like to replay.

I don't need an all new product, now with more SJW crap.

I understand where you're coming from, but Nintendo tends NOT to do that as much as you would think. The circumstance here was that you had customers almost begging Nintendo to do what you are talking about, but they didn't release it.

They sit on a gold mine of IP, and choose to sparingly release it. It could be the greatest decision ever to keep demand high. You could also argue that they are leaving money on the table.

They seem to be doing well, but they also seem to always leave people wanting more.

Like the other person pointed out, probably not, but most Nintendo gear has value to collectors eventually.

I saw the downvotes for you just saying to question journalists. I agree with you there and the downvotes weren't called for. I probably had better interactions with him because I'm a fan of Nintendo PRODUCTS. I understand the company can make bad decisions now and again, though (And do some weird anti consumer stuff, too).

I remember that guy from when we first started. Seemed like a good dude, but that should be a lesson to all to avoid buying into what game journalists / leakers say. From what I've heard (rumors, and I don't remember where I saw it, so take it with a grain of salt), Nintendo even creates fake internal news so leakers don't really know what's true. I think this was before the Skyward Sword announcement, so. . . They got the bad half, right? Lol.

Thanks for describing it in a lengthy manner. Gives me a good start. What are the game modes? I'm coming from Battlefield, if that helps. Deathmatch, Conquest, Rush, that type of thing.

That explains it. Hope it's a great game and sells well. It's always been weird to me that Metroid is a foundational game, but is always kind of ehh in sales (For Nintendo, anyway, other games would love those numbers).

Psyched for this. It reminds me of the Samus Returns remake for the 3DS and that was one of the best games for that system. Super fun. For me, best news out of e3.

Wait, is this about video games or Hollywood? Truth here that applies to both.

I agree, but I think maturity in this instance isn't necessarily a good thing. The concern I have is monopolistic tendencies where smaller studios get squeezed out. Hopefully gamers don't consolidate around a few companies and purchase worthwhile indies to keep choice in the market.

No disagreement there. AAA games are the ones with the terrible middle management and the ballooning costs. When you can't innovate, spend more money on advertisement and journalists.

Political correctness contributes greatly, but there is also the question of money. Video games have become so expensive to make that they can't be busts. That means the only innovation can be graphics or more things happening on screen. In addition to that, political correctness enforces blandness in writing. Events must fit within a certain preapproved parameter and we must avoid machismo at any cost. Blend these together and most things come out same-y.

Nintendo is the only AAA company that even tries to innovate and take any risks. For some this isn't as appealing due to their insistence on using hardware that's behind the curve (I believe they want availability and cost effectiveness) and usually offer things that are appropriate for kids.

So, we have an industry that, with the exception of Nintendo (to a degree, they aren't perfect) , will follow the trends set by smaller companies that will try to do something different. Isn't that most industries, though? The companies already on top have reach and power, but only want to keep producing the same thing that they always have for the sake of a steady revenue stream, and you have those on the bottom who are trying to carve out a piece for themselves who are willing to try something different.

Buy what you want to support and what you want the industry to be more like.

This is better than not apologizing. This is awesome. Buying everything I can get my hands on by this guy, and happy to tell people about it.

It's weird so many people recommend playing it blank slate. No thanks, I'm not a masochist.

I think the only time I ever was upset enough to quit was due to lag on bf4, and that was just for the night. The only game I consciously decided to quit was Dark Souls. The first quit was after a friend told me about getting back to the undead asylum and told me how. I asked if this was some type of optional sidequest, and he told me it was required to complete the game. I said, I'm done. He asked if it was for the night, and I told him I was done. I tried to pick it back up, grinded out enough slimes to fully upgrade the Zwilander, got to blighttown, finished it, and just concluded that it wasnt worth my time because I wasnt enjoying it.

I like the company. I like that there isn't any SJW crap in it. The difficulty is fine. I dealt with the bullcrap demon who has two dogs that bum rush you when you go through the door. I just don't care for the aesthetic of the game. It's dark, depressing and melancholy. Most NPCs are garbage people that I have no desire to save, besides one dude and maybe the fire keepers. It was weird that I had to go into party mode to shut down invaders. The item descriptions feel like they are made to troll you.

To be honest, I also think that people I talked to built it up a little too much and didn't describe what it was going in (One friend compared it to Skyrim. If we weren't good friends before, I might have stopped talking to him. Being as he was the one that recommended Borderlands, I've just learned that our opinions on games are WAAAAY different).

Now that I have a better idea and have watched so videos that went over the lore and explained the gameplay philosophy, I've thought about trying it again when it goes on sale for cheap again. Knowing what to expect and that it is unreasonable (Not impossible, just way too frustrating for my taste) to play it without a guide, I might get back to it one day.

I didn't even know that was Notch's real name. It amazes me the hate that he gets for pretty innocuous statements. Really reminds you know how stupid the average Twitter and reddit user is.

True, and then they enter into the victim / outrage Olympics, where they repeat, and then try to outdo each other about how upset they are, and expect everyone else to be upset as well. A few more cycles of this and they establish the new line of conformity, or the news cycle moves on and their outrage attention is driven elsewhere. Then they repeat this process of misery until death or red pilling. Miserable cycle in which to live. But, that's woke life for you.

It amazes me the drama bubble in which these losers live. Of course, most Twitter usage is liberal idiots, and they don't have a good understanding of how the world works.

Not that I know of, but I don't know a whole lot about this guy or this series. He could have had a full site and gutted it so that he can't be bombarded by butt hurt libs. If you're looking for other stuff he's made, I posted the Steam link below.

Before I give a link to the shop, I was looking for the official site. Typing in Fivenightsatfreddys.com redirects you to scottgames.com, and the ONLY thing I could see there was what looks like a FNAF character with a single word under it: OBEY. It looks like a jab at politically correct society.

Hope it is good. Trailer looks awesome. George R. R. Martin is concerning though. I'll wait till it comes out and see what people have to say about it.
