Wesley Yin-Poole: "Another week, another Eurogamer News Cast! Join Eurogamer reporter Emma Kent, news editor Tom Phillips and me in the video below for an action-packed show of thrills, spills and the odd mug check."
By the switch sales, definitely. Nintendroids.
People who do have low standards.
Lmfao, yes the media often does. I can't decipher yet how they've pulled it off, but Nintendo is untouched mostly.
I was surprised by this bit of content. I didn't expect to enjoy a Eurogamer vcast.
yes you always do, and cause of that their exclusive library is so limited to only pokemons, zeldas and marios, ughhhh.🤢
I do not support a number of their business practices, but if you think that is all they have for exclusives you are either willfully ignorant or in denial of what is actually there. In fact, there is a certain 3rd party exclusive that is on fire right now, but I am sure you will ignore that fact because of your obvious bias.
You mean Monster Hunter?, third party exclusive hehe, more like poors man Monster Hunter World, still not sure if you are referring to that game, seriously not even a exclusive, honestly I really don't remember the names of other Nintendo exclusives maybe, I think there is Kirby, the big inflated head game that everyone catches insect or something in a village, I think there was a Platinum game long gone forgotten now, seriously 99% of the news surrounding Nintendo is like I said are about Marios, Pokemons and Zeldas. ughhhh 🤢🤢, I remember the time very long time ago when the release of a Mario game and a Zelda game was very special and awesome, but today those are just some big fat sick cows that just keep providing the same thing over and over again and all that because of Nintendo doesn't care about innovation, and people just keep buying their stuff that it doesn't matter how old / bad the milk is, oh this is just an opinion.
@masterfox Calling Rise a poor man's MH World is all that needs be said to expose your bias. It reeks of bitterness that MH was not removed from Nintendo due to World's success. Call it what you want, I own both games. Both are good, but Rise is better. I am certainly not alone on that, but hey thats just my opinion. The difference between you and I is that I was able to play both games to come to that opinion.
Or y’know, like Astral Chains, Bayonetta 2, Bravely Default 2, Xenoblade Chronicles, but yea I get what you were kinda trying to say.
And the penny drops. Only took you a decade. Slow clap...
Noooooo, really lol?
Resounding yes. Last month I visited Nintendo Land in Universal Studios Japan. As a themepark fan I was in SHOCK to see that big areas of the Land are only accesible if you purchase a $30 armband. We are not talking about added interactivity, you are physically not allowed to enter to look and walk around unless you purchase the band. I have NEVER seen anything like this in any themepark. But as usual, Nintendo somehow gets away with it 🤷♂️
you have to pay a 2nd entry fee for that? although i do think this is an unfair comparison, youre a fan of themeparks which literally do the exact same thing as what you are condemning, only for even bigger areas of land. but because you are a fan of themeparks (and not nintendo?) that gives them a pass? when it comes to gaming they are kind of greedy and especially those anniversary games theyve been releasing is the opposite way of how you celebrate an anniversary in gaming, making it exlcusive for a certain period of time...and pleas nintendo with your next console give a NORMAL controller as well for fucking once for each system sold.
Nintendo is a media darling and has the most loyal fanboys defending them 24/7. They literally sold a cardboard box for $60 and got praised. Their consoles cost a premium even though they are never up there specs wise(unlike others they want to make profit on every box sold) and their exclusives rarely drop in price and they straight up port old games and charge full price If there was no PlayStation or Xbox Nintendo would have ruined the gaming market. We can thank both ms and Sony for actually competing and moving the industry forward It's so funny and astonishing that when Nintendo is doing well their fanboys and these media members say they are competing with PlayStation and Xbox but when their systems don't sell we get the well Nintendo really isn't competing with PlayStation and Xbox and instead doing it's own thing They are never treated equal in criticism because we all grew up playing either Nintendo or sega so they get a nostalgia factor. Where both PlayStation and Xbox get their share of criticism. Nintendo on the other hand gets to do whatever it wants and never face any real criticism ZBOTW is the perfect example to this day. It's 9.7 out of 10 meaning near perfect scores and one of the best games ever made. Yet according to 14k+ user reviews it's 8.7 out of 10. It was never reviewed staying neutral because most reviewers were the ones making hype videos before release so how can they than review it fairly
Every console has their fanboys that will defend their console of choice to their death. And yes breath of the wild is overrated. I’m currently playing it now, just got the master sword and dam this game is difficult. Some of the puzzles are so hard that idk how some teens or even kids are going to beat them without a guide.
You're absolutely right every console has its fanboys but Nintendo has the most loyal ones. Regardless of what happens they keep defending Nintendo at every turn and more power to you I am not bashing them I just want more neutral journalism in gaming. You cannot call out Microsoft and Sony for one thing and then praise Nintendo for the very same thing
@neutral there is absolutely 0 ways to measure or prove that they are the most loyal ones. maybe there is a somewhat more vocal loyal minority compared to the other 2, we dont know. how can you say after that post you are not bashing nintendo? none of what you say, you can prove so in my book this does qualify as bashing nintendo since its all just pure speculation. "Nintendo on the other hand gets to do whatever it wants and never face any real criticism" thats alsmost like bashing nintendo in a post and afterwards say: "im not bashing nintendo" to try and shield yourself from any sort of criticism because you know what you said is not able to being proven anyway. so there is only a 1 point gap between user and critic reviews, seems reasonable to me. Havent played the game so cant comment on the quality of the game itself.
Of course, they have some of the worst digitals policies. But now one seems to mention them. Early closing of the Wii U shop. No backward compatibility for digital games like snes old games. The removal of online game just to create demands. Etc. We can also says that Nintendo gets a free pass with their games too where others can easily gets bad review for generic Story telling well Nintendo is always exempt of this.
The Wii U eShop isn't closed, what do you mean?
In certain countries yes https://en-americas-support...
Those eshops were limited to begin with and didn't even allow game purchases within the store. It's literally for the countries that never had full access. Bringing that up is a non-issue, and you know it.
Yes. absolutely cause they know we all want the pkmn, zelda and mario stuff.
I wish they would stop pushing stupid pokemon and other stuff. but they wont because its a money milker. So many good games they could make but just rehash the same stuff all the time and then you are lucky to see other games every other console.
I guess the games press finally had to address it when even EA of all companies has better remaster pricing with the Mass effect trilogy.
No, Nintendo gets treated correctly. What's wrong is the media fueled console war between Microsoft and Sony. Looking forward to your next DF video telling me my game is interior because it only has 60 FPS in 99.5% of the game.
Nintendo part 18:50
Yes, Nintendo gets a free pass for a lot of things.
Yes you do
Forever unfortunately. Nintendo could do so much more and yet so many refuse to call them out. Even Sony and Microsoft capitulate once in awhile but Nintendo...hmmph
Yes and because of that i will buy a switch used and go atmosphere, never going to. Buy a nintendo game ever again
What's interesting is that even the known Nintendo fans on this site haven't been defending Nintendo lately. Take this thread as an example. Is it because they, too, are sick of Nintendo's game output of lazy ports, 'Mario This and That', and casual cash grabs?
Yes,and they will get away with it again. Notice the lack of views of all the youtubers video on the matter. If Sony did the same thing those videos would get at least 4 times the view and retweets. Or even here the vlog got approved and posted on weekend which is not exactly good for exposure.
Yea and it’s why they’ve become like they are now. Until people vote with their wallets this will only get worse.
