Nintendoom: Part 4: Changing the Future

And now the wrap up. We have a console in place with solid specs and a great price of $249. We have a handheld with more than acceptable specs and a great price at $149. And with backing from Disney, those specs. could be pushed a bit further without taking too much of a loss or increasing the price for the consumer, and fund more developers which ultimately means more games. So what’s the final change to make sure Nintendo gets back into the running and competition.

Changing Nintendo Corp.

Unfortunately I don’t really see Nintendo being willing to change as quick and as much as they need to in a single console generation, which is exactly why a “buyout” from Disney is needed. Disney is going to have to be the one to go in and fix everything wrong with Nintendo’s backwards thinking.

A foundation for a comparable online service has to be laid. Miiverse is a wonderful addition, but a solid online network with online modes to games that scream for them (Mario Party, New Super Mario Bros., etc...) is something Disney is going to have to force upon Nintendo who utterly refuses to do anything worthwhile with online gaming outside of a handful of games.

Marketing and promotion is going to have to be completely Disney inspired, because Nintendo rarely attempts to promote the majority of their content, and Disney has the media outlets to do it.

Disney needs to implement a complete management overhaul. I’d hate for Disney to come in and fire everyone, but many employees need to be moved from senior and management positions into advisory positions. They have the wisdom and experience of what makes Nintendo, Nintendo. But they don’t have a clue how to reach the newer market, and that’s why there has to be a mix of old and new management for the sake of Nintendo’s future.

As I said earlier, Disney would also be key in making many older classic Nintendo IP’s see new life such as Earthbound, Super Mario RPG, F-Zero, and more. Nintendo has little to no concern for these IP’s, but Disney has a history of revisiting classics and delivering them to a new audience.

Disney would also be great in pushing Nintendo to create New IP. As much as we enjoy Mario, Link (Zelda is one of my favorite franchises), Pokemon, Metroid, Donkey Kong, Smash, Kirby, etc... It’s time for some new ideas and concepts like Splatoon and Pokken Fighter.

Expansions and Merchandising would be huge for Disney and Nintendo. Amiibo’s for Nintendo’s entire cast of characters and Disney’s all working with the console in games like Disney Infinity, Pokemon RPG, Super Smash Bros., Kingdom Hearts, and more is a toy goldmine.

There are so many benefits from Disney buying Nintendo that it makes little sense as to why it’s taken so long to happen. I believe Nintendo has another console left in them before a buyout would be considered from investors. However, I do feel that a buyout from Disney would help Nintendo adjust to the current market more than NIntendo could ever do on their own. A $249 entry price console is nice, but if it’s still missing 3rd party support by the masses, solely selling off Nintendo IP’s, and still lacks the online and multimedia support that the competition has then it’s all still meaningless. And unfortunately that’s where Nintendo currently stands. The Wii U is a good console, but it’s a incredibly difficult sale as a primary console to the majority of gamers, besides the fact that they arguably have the best software of the 3 for now. Having their niche / gimmick and their iconic IP’s has carried them very far, but it���s time for a restructure and the foundation needs laid again. Once again, I think the concept of the Wii U was the right idea, it just suffered from a serious lack of execution. I wouldn’t mind if Nintendo gave the Wii U concept another try for their next console, with some modifications to the hardware, major online and software improvements, a complete overhaul of Nintendo Corp., and hopefully a future buyout from Disney.

For Nintendo to succeed they have to have several contemporary idealist added to the Management Team.

Just read all four parts, excellent. I agree 100%, I also been thinking for a few months now that a Disney buyout will be the best thing to happen to Nintendo.

ABizzel13142d ago

Thanks for reading it all, and I'm glad you agree. I have a Sony and Microsoft version coming up over the next few weeks, check back for those if you're interested.


Diablo 4 Is Finally Coming to Steam

If you're among those who wanted to play Diablo 4 on PC but have been holding out for a Steam release, the wait is almost over following today's announcement.

I was initially interested in this as it looked externally closer to Diablo 2 than 3, but it does seem like the game is not a great single player action rpg I was hoping for. If you take all the press and whatnot hype out of it, is this really any good, for example compared to Diablo 2 or Grim Dawn? The latter has not been as addictive and interesting for me as Diablo 2, but maybe it will get better as I progress. I'm looking for a 100% single-player side of this.

Daver26m ago(Edited 23m ago)

I got the sorcerer to 82 and I thought it would be good similar to diablo 2 but the thing is it is boring. All the dungeons feel the same, the loot is uninteresting you find unique, you pick it up and you continue without looking at it because you know its probably bad and not very different from what you have. You never feel powerful unless you make The Build everyone is using on internet

Azurite24m ago

The Steam reviews will be interesting.

Knightofelemia9m ago

I thought it was all ready out on Steam when the game came out.

"The London-based (the UK) indie games publisher Kepler Interactive  and Belgrade-based (Serbia) indie games developer Ebb Software, are today super thrilled and proud to announce that their philosophical atmospheric horror game “Scorn”, is now available for the PS5 via PSN." - Jonas Ek, TGG.

Very lackluster game. Had high hopes for it, but it didn't cut it. Really only for people who appreciate the art of it all. It really doesn't deliver as the Myst title with obscene imagery it was trying to be.

jznrpg4h ago

Some Xbox sites were giving it 10’s

Tacoboto3h ago

The Xbox version's highest review score on Metacritic is an 80.

One review site gave the PC version a 10. One. Not some. One. That same site gave 100s to BG3, Starfield, Horizon Burning Shores, and FFXVI as well.

oIMyersIo2h ago

Which sites?

As Tacoboto said, only one is showing a 10 and that's for the PC version. I'd also question that publications credibility given they gave Starfield and a dlc a 10 as well.

Tacoboto3h ago

I agree.

The opening puzzle was a little too vague because I missed something super obvious once I realized what it was. The few attempts at combat back at launch were very rough. It gave me one bout of motion sickness in a section of the game was was especially grey and linear.

But when puzzles felt not-too-obscure and you got out of the grey-on-grey corridors, the experience was unique at least.

I didn't have as much fun as something more whimsical and colorful as Call of the Sea, but it wasn't a waste of the 6-8 hours I put into it. A solid 6/10.

TGG_overlord1h ago

Fair enough. Even so, I had a real blast watching the world's most famous e-begger cry over this game though lol.

TGG_overlord1h ago

Imo, it's a very mixed bag of a game...To be fair though, I didn't walk into it with very high expections...

shinoff21834h ago

To anyone that is interested this does have a physical release coming.

Vits4h ago

This game is great, but it's not for everyone. It doesn't hold your hand nor does it try to be accessible, combat is slow and you are always at a disadvantage so if you do engage you must make your shots count because the penalty for missing is often dying and that can reset a lot of your progress. Puzzles are in my opinion the best part, there are enough of them, they offer a good challenge and are also the best moment to appreciate the art style of the game.

The closest comparison that I can give would be with the original Echo Nights. And just like that game, I feel that you have to approach it with the mindset that it's not an action game and that you will get frustrated if you try to play it as one.

TGG_overlord1h ago

Do you remember old game "Bad Mojo"? That game wasn't for everyone either...This is the same kind of game in that aspect. Besides that, I agree with what you wrote.

Vits1h ago

Oh, Bad Mojo. Completely forgot about it and I definitely agree about it not being for everyone. If I recall correctly I couldn't stomach it for very long and I played it as sort of a challenge.

Concertoine1h ago

I agree, the game has stuck with me in all aspects of presentation: sound and visuals were on point.
