The truth...spoken.

This comic speaks the truth, I mean seriously, what happened to a challenge, I still don't have expert mode unlocked for Star Fox 64, granted I never actually sat down with the goal of getting it, but with today's games, you don't need to have a goal to do everything in the game, the achievements and play modes you can't get the first play through are just the "kill a lot of enemies" or "win/play so many of X match" to unlock. What happened to hard to beat games, I remember the side scroller AVP for SNES having a hard ass last boss, she'd bumrush you across the screen and hit you 4 times a second for redunculous damage, and wouldn't stop hitting until you died, and I've played the new incarnations of Mortal Kombat and such, can get a flawless victory on the last boss most every time, what happened to the end boss, again, bumrushing you and hitting you 4 times a second until you died? Seriously, who else is pissed at the ease of modern games?

I had a feeling a lot of people on SF-O would be familiar with VGCATS,

"Look, a rock"

*BAM*

"A rock! *doo dee doo*"

but yeah, had to post that comic for us Star Foxers because what could easily ruin the next SF game is it being too easy. I'd love it if I had to sink at least 50 hours into it to achieve everything.

Yeah... This is old. I think it's been posted here at least four times.

Hopefully some quality stuff will come down soon. Iwata finally realized that the Wii is currently lacking in the great games department.

The company, which cut Wii prices 20 percent a month ago, forecast the motion-sensing machine’s first annual drop in shipments, citing a lack of strong software titles.

But then, he has been known to say one thing to the investors, and then the opposite to the gamers...

Take a hint, Nintendo. Now's the time to start announcing things that we "knew" have been coming. Kirby. Pikmin 3. Kid Icarus. The new Zelda. (Just to name a few...) With the exception of Zelda (Shiggy keeps bring it up), I consider each one of these vaporware until I hear something for real. Pikmin 3 was supposed to be a launch title for heaven's sake.

The article quotes Iwata as saying he expects momentum to return. It won't unless some games start coming.

We don't need a new DSi right now. Especially one with no new features other than larger screens.

...I do agree with the comic though.

I second!

Yeah I know lol, they really need to stop with their focus on the hardware and work more on software, and sorry if its old news but I am rather new to the forum and figured if people have seen it, they've seen it, if not though, could lead to some fun discussions.

Don't get me wrong, I like games that are beatable, but not if they're a total pushover/for babies...lotsa modern games like that, sadly, 'cause they appeal to elementary schoolers.

Indeed, look how many 8 year olds play Call of Duty and such, granted I was playing Turok and Doom when I was 8 and such, but I accepted the games for what they were, adult games that required a bit of thinking at times, I didn't want em easier, I was proud when I got past an area that stumped me.

yeah

when you market to the 15+ age group, younger gamers automatically like what the big kids like, it's trickle down popularity...but if you appeal to the elementary school group and younger, you alienate the older gamers automatically, and lose an audience, and the 15+ audience is one you wanna keep, they got the most $$$ to spend

Yeah lol, although I am not ashamed to admit I went and got Battle of Giants: Dragons for my DSi, got some weird looks from the girl at gamestop though lol, told her I loved dragons and she said, "Yeah, I guess" with the tone of, "Whatever you say", then I said, "No, can you not see me, with my dragon pendant, my dragon shirt, and my embossed leather dragon vest?", then she realized I was dead serious, unfortunately I had to go to another gamestop though to get that game and Star Fox Command, she sold the last copy of dragons to a 10 year old girl she said lol.

Oh yeah, and the Wii also needs more violent games, there are a few, but most aren't good, the one that truly stands out though is The Godfather: Blackhand Edition, I didn't see a single action in that game that doing it with the remote and nunchuk didn't require the right movement on your part, this includes driving, shooting, slamming people's heads on counters, throwing em through windows, holding their collar and punching/batting them in the face, and choking and/or breaking their necks. I was playing it and went, "My god, is this a game or a mafia recruitment tool, eh, either way  I'm having fun." If the Wii made more games like that, I really believe it could truly contend with the 360 and PS3 for all age groups.
