Miyamoto sheds light on achievements being in upcoming Nintendo titles.
When i get an achievement i expect something more to happen besides a default logo popping up to inform me that I did it. I wan achievements to unlock extras in game. I have no clue why this gen is so into useless achievements besides to say they did it. To each their own i guess.
i agree with you right there i don't see what the big deal about trophies and achievements are they are just pointless in the end 1 thing i liked about metroid primes 3 point system is that you could actually use it to unlock extras in the game i don't see why people like trophies and achievements so much what's the big deal?
I agree just as well. Achievements should have some sort of bonuses after receiving them, I mean most of the time many of the achievements are generally gained on harder difficulties. So it would be nice to have some extra stuff to go along with it. Also the only reason I like getting trophies is for fun, I mean on Playfire I joined a clan and we are in a ranking type of thing, just all for fun. So whenever I get one it just gets me one step closer to another level in the clan. Though I'm not going to lose sleep on trying to get every last one of them. Anyway yeah I agree in-game bonuses after getting an achievement please!
Some trophies have bonuses on them - Home items. Sony have also said in the past, they plan on implementing a reward system.
An even better idea: More achievements = a discounted DLC price. Maybe for every achievement you get, 2 pennies are added to the next DLC you buy. This would garner well for people that want to work hard and actually have something to prove for it, and also for the people who are complaining about the prices. @1.1 I'm not really sure. I'm a trophy fanatic. If I know I can get a platinum trophy on my game, I'll play it to death until I can get it (latest played-to-death game: inFamous). My friends don't care about trophies, and I don't care to brag about them, but there's just something in me that wants to keep playing until I know I've completely BEATEN the game according to trophy standards.
Guys, you're missing the point. If achievements unlocked things in the game they wouldn't be achievements, they'd just be plain old secrets, like have always been in games. You say they're 'pointless' and yes, they are - but that's kind of the point of them. They're for showing people online how good you are at games.
I think the "achievement" type things were done very well in Wario Land: Shake It! and Metroid Prime 3. They actually netted you stuff for completing them. The in-game achievements of Mega Man 9 were done badly. They should've unlocked stuff we instead paid for with the DLC. Still, I completed all of them. Damn completionism :(
Anyway Nintendo will always be one step behind the competition in features that make games better, be it hardware horsepower or full integration with its online service.
um so who are the ones behind nintendo releasing motion controls?
@1.1 Did he mention the Wiimote at all? Try again.
As 1.2 said, Try again. Nintendo has been 1uped this E3 anyway.
lol wait achievement for wii i wonder if has enough power to handle them lol
This is quite possibly the dumbest comment I've ever read. 'grats.
Nintendo's online network is a clusterf*ck. No unified user system and no support to stop online cheaters. I'm not talking about glitchers now, I'm talking about full blown game altering, code injecting cheaters.
Yup, I am one of those players. I played Animal Crossing: City Folk for a while just because it was fun to break the game, get 999 million bells, or redesign my town with nothing but rare items and have people come over and play. Nintendo couldn't do a thing about it either because as you said, their online infrastructure is a clusterf*ck.
you got a wiiward for standing on the balance board yay:P
MS copies Nintendo, not the other way around. Sony does too.
Until Nintendo develops some unified, well-built structure that ties in with all games allowing no friend codes whatsoever, a username, a profile page, a gamecard/gametag/whatever, PM system, voice chat, a hard drive, and a decent specs with their hardware, they will not have anything worthy of promoting online games. The last game I had hoped for was Smash Brothers. I was so hyped for that game, and then they announced as one of their daily updates, it may be a little laggy and what not. When I received it, I played it for a month or so before I ended up not turning on my Wii for the next six or seven months until Animal Crossing: City Folk came out. I only bought that for my girlfriend because she loves anything that's Animal Crossing. The last time I played that was four months ago... Bottom line: Hire a company like Xfire, Steam, Gamespy, or some company like them to either guide you or build you a decent system for the next Nintendo platform so I can believe in your consoles once again.
The only game that I have played where achievements were worth something was in Team Fortress 2 for the PC.
If Nintendo did something right this gen, it's not to include trophies or achievements to unlock your "e-Penis." I prefer in-game unlockables ala Soul Calibur, Heavenly Sword, etc! Opposed to reloading a weapon 250 times to unlock a bronze trophy or to get 100,000 kills to get a lousy achievement. :| This is where Sony only fanboy's fail. If a game has no trophies they wouldn't buy the game. :| Even if the game got 2's/10's and it included trophies they'd support the game. :|
I like trophies because if you want them all, it forces you to do something in the game that you probably wouldn't do otherwise. Trophies are just a cool way to fully explore what the games have to offer. It'll force you to use a weapon you may not use otherwise, and explore areas for collectibles, that sort of thing. I just really like the feeling I get when I get a popup saying I got a trophy, when playing Wii, I always think "This should be a trophy, that should be a trophy...". I just wish trophies could be used to maybe download extra exclusive content, or demos/videos and other exclusive goodies.
