Gaming Irresponsibly delves into the world of single-save games to explore the good and bad.
I erased my save! Put a big magnet on the game. It worked and didn't mess up the game itself but I am pretty sure that isn't an advisable action for anyone...
what does nintendo have to do with this? i don't really see what nintendo has to do with capcom and their 1 save for RE
Super Monkey Ball 3D, Zookeeper and Sims 2 say otherwise.
none of those games are nintendos so again i don't see what this has to do with nintendo or how its their new business practice this articles main focus is RE mercinaries and its 1 save file something which capcom decided to do
It is however a feature that is accepted with Nintendo devices. They are allowing it to happen by not stopping it from happening.
Well, it certainly didn't help the people considering the 3ds to hear all of the Mercenaries stuff.
do you expect nintendo to dictate what 3rd parties can and cannot do with THEIR own games they did before years ago and the 3rd parties didn't like that fact of the matter is this isn't a nintendo business practice when all of nintendo games and 3rd party games it will be but as things are now 2 3DS games using a single save system is NOT a new nintendo practice
Yes, console manufacturers do indeed dictate what third parties can and cannot do on their platform. They can even stop a game from appearing on the platform. Do these publishers not get that hurting your consumers to protect your profit don't work. They do it repeatedly, like nasty DRM, online passes and save games. Sooner or later, people will revolt.
Nintendo cancelled Megaman Legends 3. You've heard it here first, folks!
as far as im aware nintendo can't stop a 3rd party publisher from using a form of DRM on their own game besides that my point was nintendo had nothing do with with capcom deciding to use said 1 save file system that is a FACT so this being called nintendos new business practice is ridiculous
***as far as im aware nintendo can't stop a 3rd party publisher from using a form of DRM on their own game*** I believe Nintendo can, just like how MS dictates who and how you create accessories especially games. The issue here is, it is soo unusual that I bet Nintendo isn't even aware or maybe don't even care. ***besides that my point was nintendo had nothing do with with capcom deciding to use said 1 save file system that is a FACT*** Although I agree with you, it is not a fact.
gaming accessories are an entirely different thing from DRM microsoft stopped 3rd parties so they could corner the market it is a fact considering only the 1 capcom game uses said 1 file feature i SERIOUSLY doubt nintendo singled out capcom and made them use 1 save file feature for RE
While i dont like the idea, since i dont see how it would be posible to do this on a console game since they are disc based & not cartridge based i guess i dont really care all that much.
World of Goo has 3 save slots. Why 3??? Ever heard of a the standard family of 4? Limited save slots need to be banned in all of gaming. It was useful when games just had enough storage to save a few game profiles but it's now obsolete.
