Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

If Sonic Team could be trusted, I'd say this would be a perfect opportunity to make a Sonic Adventure-esque game with a mini Chao Garden for the mobile portion.

If they want the hardware power and attractiveness to third-party developers, they're going to have to dump the GameCube-based architecture, with its PowerPC processor and all that, that Nintendo have used the last three generation. However, that would rule out backwards compatibility, and to be honest, I don't think Nintendo can be all that bothered to wonder outside their comfort zone.

They don't have to wander outside their comfort zone. With every new console, they make us re-buy virtual console titles. No matter how many generations pass, or how powerful the system is, everyone seems to want roms of 8 and 16 bit games. Functionally, they don't need to innovate, they have the rights to print money so long as they keep dragging their nes/snes/64 library up with them.

I know you're presenting this as a bad thing, but I think backwards compatibility is something that we as consumers should be expecting in this day and age.

It's something we should be demanding certainly but I don't think, given the past few consoles, it's something we should be *expecting* at this point.

Honestly backwards compatibility just limits consoles. I'd be perfectly happy without it.

Welp no Zelda on the WiiU guess I bought a paper weight with only 7 titles I planed on buying on the system one of them is gone I know it.

 

the 6 titles are

Smash Bros Out

Bayenetta 2 Out

Wolly world Soon

Mario Maker Soon

Xenoblade Chronicles X Soon

Star Fox ...Maybe?

 

Zelda would have been my 7th must own

Nothing official but the rumor goes NX will be released in mid 2016 because initial manufacturing is rumored to begin this October which in turn means Zelda U's definitive edition will be on NX.

 

Naturally this rumored initial production will be of customized AMD Puma and we can have a shiny new console next year, and actual rumored games like B:AK: Batwing Edition and Pikmin 4K the year after.

So your just assuming it's going to jump ship. Really if they are just now approaching 3rd parties I'd imagine we the closest the NX will be out would be Holiday season 2016. But again assumptions. Nobody has any concrete news yet on the NX. So how about we all cool our jets on the sky falling on Zelda Wii U.

Actually if the production numbers were anywhere close to accurate *which I seriously doubt*, even if they started production in 2016... Wouldn't be out till 2017 anyways.

ah ok.

 

My prediction is that Zelda U will release for the NX as well. At the earliest, as was said above, if devs started right now, the earliest they could have product ready is Holiday 2016.

 

What generally happens during console transitions is that they publishers look at games that are already in development and have them adjust their focus and begin developing for the next system instead.

not to be rude, but we knew zelda u wasn't going to be at E3 months ago

 

if you don't think zelda will be on the wii u, you're delusional. at the worst, it'll be a twilight princess situation. released on wii u and as a launch title for nx

Uh... I still don't want to use a touch screen to play games.

 

Don't get me wrong, it was innovative, wildly successful, and offered a wide range of "never before conceived" control schemes and methods which let nintendo do stuff that changed how we interfaced with our devices.

 

You still have to touch the screen you use. We were smack in the middle of an age of germaphobia before: and now everyone knows that no matter how hard you try, your hands are never, EVER clean.
