Nintendo's Satoru Iwata and Shigeru Miyamoto believe that Nintendo can make core games.
i hope for their sake they are right.
"We can" Less talk, more show. Nintendo used to be so awesome back in the NES/SNES days. Now they just rely on the same franchises from the 80's rather than come up with new ones. If they can prove themselves to be awesome once again, I'll gladly buy a WiiU
Need to see it, before I believe it.... And they haven't showed us much for a long time. But then again, what is a "core" game.
"For example, The Legend of Zelda games were something geared towards the toughest audience, and it has been so from the beginning." Uhh... what? LoZ has been easy as piss since Wind Waker.
Does that make it less fun?
Yet it's clear their definition of tough is different than other definitions Regardless, I agree, games are supposed to be fun, hardcore or not
Did I say -- or even imply -- that it did? Take the stick out, please. You'll find sitting to be more comfortable.
I should hope so. I'm getting tired of these damn casual games.
Then give me a gory game like MK that's exclusive to Nintendo.
Core doesn't mean Gore...
Wii does have Madworld. Unfortunately, that's the only one I can think of off the top of my head, and the repetitive controls got to me midway through the game.
Do both No More Heroes game still count? One was exclusive for the longest time.
..."we just choose not to".
While I disagree with your opinion ( if that is what you really think), that is a funny joke.
Then create a new IP instead you guys relying on Mario/Zelda all the time. The only Mario game I would welcome with open arms is a open world one for the Wii U, the mushroom kingdom is massive and I bet Nintendo could give us a massive mario GTA game....obviously not with mario beating up prostitoads for money with a Starrod bat. You could glide around the map, take karts, boats, lakitus cloud....it would be great. But come on Nintendo you used to be creative....look at Pikman what you guys created, that was great and it's took you this long to make a third. Don't rely on gimmicks anymore Nintendo...you can do it.
Like Last Story Pandoras Tower and Xenoblade? Og course that if you do not include Wii sports as a new IP but why would anyone not include it as a new IP since it is NEW. I could name off the others but in usual you will of course ignore them and continue to rant about 2 games out of 20 or more..
Sure its all Mario and Zelda if you forget Fire EMblem, Donkey Kong, Kirby, Wario, Disaster day of Crisis, Battalion Wars, Excite Truck, Metroid, etc but yeah you keep crying about it.. I am sure someone will care eventually what someone who never bought and never will buy a Nintendo cosnole wants from them.
You know its funny. Every gimmick you can name from Nintendo is pretty much also offorred by Sony, oh but i am sure we will see you in the Vita Articles and PS3 Move articles talking about how useless those gimmicks are? No probably not. Be too busy praising Sony for hardcore features like Touch screens in Vita and some MOve game that Wii owners were playing years ago.
Right first of Last Story, Pandoras Tower and Xenoblade has or had no hype surrounding them unlike Mario, Kirby, Metroid etc and I'm pretty sure Nintendo don't care that much about them since they aren't releasing them in North America. Hmmm really care about those core games don't they. Will they even show advetrs for them when they release...probably not Second I have always bought a Nintendo console when they have released so please don't be one of those guys on here who think they're mystic meg and know everything about someone. The gamecube didn't sell as many as the Wii for example but I think it's a better console then the Wii because the game support was amazing. Third and lastly....I couldn't care less about motion controls like the Move or Kinect. I can see that Move is probably more capable of core games then Kinect but that's a differen't topic. Go through my history from past comments...I just do no care. Vita, the DS, the whole touch screen thing....I like for me I don't think it's as gimmick like as the Wii/Move/Kinects motion controls. "Be too busy praising Sony for hardcore features like Touch screens in Vita and some MOve game that Wii owners were playing years ago"...are you trying to say I have or...what becausing bringing up fake assumptions is pretty weak. Now please, troll harder.....oh and psssssst, it's always nice to get your facts right when replying to someone :)
You asked for NEW IP's. Not hyped IPS. Could you make up your mind what you want or are you just going to flip flop every time you are proven wrong?
BTW Not caring is one thing. Crying and complaining are another. Sure you might not care for Motion controls on the PS3 but do you go cry in every article about it like you do the Wii?
I love how people target that one person then talk to them like there the only one who is...as you say "moaning" Take a look around....<example, comment below mine> Trolls trying to start arguments <sigh>
How about creating a new IP Nintendo? I would love to see that happen.
Points to the Rolling Western featuring Jiro the Armadillo.... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
lol ok definitely not what i was looking for. plus i want a more mature title on the home console. that looked fun and all for kids but its not for me.
If you're going to be this ignorant then I'm not even going to bother responding with an intelligent post.
So, does a game that is hard count as core? I thought finding all the Green Stars in SMG2 was hard as balls. If we're talking gory games, I'd like to see Nintendo atleast try. But most importantly, start publish mature games again (Like Eternal Darkness and Conker's Bad Fur Day)!
Hardcore doesn't mean a game with bad language or gore. It means the opposite of casual "pick up and play". Wii Sports is a casual game, so a core game is something that takes time and dedication to complete. So, Zelda is a core game, as is Super Mario Galaxy (There's no way a casual player would have the time or dedication to amass 200 stars.)
Yeah! like...Mario Kart! and...and...such!
Why? Then they'd be like every other company out there. That's what I like about them and why I support them to the fullest. I love playing their games. Just make MORE of them and keep the quality up. Everybody else is doing COD, Gears and Halo clones so you do your thing. Makes you, whats that word....oh yeah. UNIQUE!
I would like to see a serious, tough, action type of game from Miyamoto. Something that didn't involve big colorful eyes and anamorphic characters.
I think at this point in his career that would be a tough challenge.
Of couse they can and they've shown they can. They just put more focus on the casual titles as of late which should never happen IMO. You can make casual games but it should never be your main focus. The fact that Nintendo themselves have to come out and say "we can make core games" just shows how far down they've gone. You wouldn't have heard this in previous gens.
It's sad he had to say that. Their games are nothing but gaming joy.
kirby epic yarn= casual the new kirby adventure wii is more to the core. animal crossing= casual harvest moon is more to the core but needs more. A lot of nintendo games that are core arent doing enough. They are all missing one thing or another. I mean difficulty level options like easy, medium, hard mode etc. They need less of that nick jr blues clues type story in their games and more of that sponge bob, rockos modern life, doug funny type story. I mean mario galaxy and kirby epic yarns story was like an episode of barney and friends. multiple options for controls. all games should have the option to be played with a regular controller. better online for their games. wii should at least have online thats better then the original xbox. this means no crappy friend code bs. also some games like zelda, and metroid should have voices in it. you dont have to make link talk but everyone else should.
Hahaha, yeah right!!!!
if anybody can its nintendo
I wouldn't mind a new f-zero!
does anyone actually understand what being mature is, and is there anything in the gaming world that reflects this?
I think Little Kings story Wii is a good example. It's one of my favorite games.
Nintendo made that Zelda tech demo thats enough to show me what they can do that 4 me was the single most impressive showcase of any HD game to date plus its Full HD 1080p and the gameplay/movement of link was light years above anything ive seen on anything this was 4 me proof Nintendo's 1st/2nd party games will demolish everything before it on say ps3/360 defo Next gen graphics/gameplay displayed right there it was WOW i shown it a few people they said when graphics get that good ill be all over it enough said.
"We can make core games".
Nintendo needs more "core" games, however, i have never questioned Nintendo's ability to make those core titles. Nintendo owns more "core" first party titles than both of their competitors.
The Legend of Zelda is my favorite game series. I am currently (re)beating all of the titles in order, to celebrate the 25th anniversary. I also love all things Mario, Metroid, and Smash Bros..
If there was ever a gamer destined for Nintendo consoles, its me. That being said, i dont expect all of my fellow gamers to feel the same way. Just do me a favor, and dont be ignorant about it.
Nintendo has the "core" resources. They just need more games, better online services, and more power.
Though the other two companies are spectacular! /s
