Of course they're afraid of change. The place where they're at now comes from re-using characters and recycling ideas. If those get criticized and people start to get aware of the problem from becoming some sort of Call of Duty with no violence it will affect their sales, and they would have to expand to another type of games. And they probably have very very little experience with them, which could lead to a flop, affecting their finance department alot.
Nintendo is most certainly out of touch.They're trying to stay relevant by using the stupidest methods imanginable. If they were to just buckle down and make a REAL videogame console again, for the first time since the gamecube fyi, everyone would be all over that shit.Imagine playing Nintendo games with, like, Pixar-film quality graphics? And not having to deal with their "innovative" gimmick naughtyword? Personally, I'd also like for a little creativity here and there, which Nintendo has sorely been lacking in recent years. I understand they need to appeal to their consumers, but right now, they also need to appeal to their competetors' consumers. Let's face it, most people who never played vidya before are much more likely to buy a ps4 or xbox one since they #1 appeal to more "mature" audiences, and #2 have much better graphics.I agree. Call of Duty is more like NSMB and Pokemon, if we need to draw parallels here.
My humble opinion of Nintendo - quote taken from Honest Trailers on Youtube:"From the company who throws everything they have at the wall, hoping it will stick."Basically, Nintendo's running out of ideas. They're taking any ideas they DO have and put it out in the market, hoping people will like it. And don't get me wrong, they're successful sometimes. I just feel like they're a bit desperate that's all. That and they like recycling. In HD.
I think one of the differences between HD re-releases on a Nintendo console and an HD re-release on the other systems is that Nintendo seems to charge a lot more for theirs. They release their HD versions at full price, as though it were a new game.Generally, on the other consoles, you can get an HD port for like $10-20. Oftentimes, it's not just one game, either... many times, it's a collection (although, those are usually around $40, from what I've seen, but even so, it's multiple titles for that price, as opposed to a single game that may or may not have a slightly remixed mode included).It's made even more polarizing, because these games are usually released each console generation from Nintendo, and the Wii U can still play Wii and GameCube games (unless I'm wrong about that, in which case, please point it out)... so you're essentially paying full price for a slightly prettier version of a game you can find in a bargain bin for $5.
Yeah I notcied that too , but at least when they say remake an actual remake ... Unlike square enix and ff7
It only has backwards compatibilty for Wii games~
lolwut? Pokemon remakes are some of the laziest things that come out of Nintendo, period.Also, why the hell wasn't there a battle frontier in oras? That was a deal-breaker for me. Emerald's battle frontier is the best post-game content in any pokemon game to date! How could they possibly leave that out of the remakes!?
ORAS, HGSS, and FRLG used the exact same engine as XY, platinum, and RS respectively. It required very little work.
I modified my post shortly after posting. Read it again~
I should also add kingdom hearts charged full price for thei remixes
Which changes nothing of my point.They reused resources. That doesn't mean they reused the whole game.Look at DBOR for example. The data is all there. It all exists already.But programming it all in, and making it all run? It's not easy.Also, I should have pointed this out before, but...Is it really wise to use Super Smash Bros. as a reference? Unless I miss my guess, it's reusing the engine from Brawl, which is built off Melee, isn't it?It may still be lazy to a point, but saying it's one of the laziest things Nintendo has done? Not even close.You want to see lazy? Look at Final Fantasy. How many times have they ported FFVII, now?There's the PS1 original. It's been ported to the PC, to PSN (which means the PSP, PSVita, and PS3). It got ported again to the PC (in so called "HD" which just means they uncompressed the FMVs and put it in higher resolution), and that version got ported the the PS4.THAT is lazy.If Square-Enix reused resources from something like Final Fantasy XIII to remake Final Fantasy VII? I wouldn't call it lazy, because at least then it would be an actual remake.I also meant to address this sooner.Apparently, the KH Remixes are actually not ports. Supposedly, Square-Enix lost the resources from the originals (or at least KH1) and had to rebuild the engine from scratch.Now, mind you, I can't prove it (and I haven't played either remix).
You realize that Majora's Mask isn't a very good example considering that in was pretty much cutting edge in the graphical department at the time. 3ds textures and polgonal figures are incredibly easy and cheap to program, especially when compared to something like that.
From what I've watched/read on Nintendo over the years, it just seems they are stubborn to change. I would understand if this new program took at share of the royalties that YouTube already take but it does not. Other companies will see this now and cash in. That I have no doubt. Gaming is only getting bigger nowadays. With all these restrictions now placed on Let's Players, companies like YouTube really need to tread carefully.
And I'm pretty sure that majora mask is a completly diffrent game even though it uses the same models and engine .and as for Pokemon , I don't think they were lazy at all ( though I'm not getting oras ) it takes actual effort to make things the way they are and from the demo and screens it actually looks Better than x imo
I also praised ssb4 for its graphics despite the amount of animations/models/texturs recycled from brawl. The difference is, one game is aesthetically pleasing while the other isn't. If the "new" pokemon games lookd GOOD, then I'd have little to complain about. (honestly, I think the best-looking pokemon game is Emerald. I hated when they started incorperating polygons into pokemon, because the screen is way too low res to display them properly)Also, have you nothing to say of my other points?
Lol? Are you a naughtyword imbecile?^ I suppose the advent of 3d platforming was just a gimmick too, right?
