So that's why he was fired. I thought so; you shouldn't insult your fans no matter how true the statement you made is.

If what Pranger said is true, then we may never see the likes of Fire Emblem 2-6, Mother 3, or even another new Metroid game. These 3 series are hanging on the ropes of if Nintendo sees that western fans are correct that there's a big enough demand for them.

Fire Emblem and Mother 3 are the least likey to get an offical release as many companies don't see the point of spending money to fully translate an old text heavy game (sad but true only game I can think of that was translated on digital release was Monster World IV) and Metroid may have hopes if Metroid federation force does well or if they deem Metriod a series worth taking another risk with.

I have a feeling that Federation Force isn't going to do well because of all the people who got butt hurt over it, but I also don't think that's really going to be a determining factor in making another Metroid. Personally I don't really care either way, but still.

I can definitely understand Fire Emblem and Mother 3 to a lesser extent, but Metroid? Metroid isn't really text heavy, the only one I know that has a good amount of dialogue is Other M and that one isn't really well liked by the fanbase. Besides, if they decide not to localize Metroid games in the future, there won't be any Metroid games in the future period. Metroid isn't popular in it's home country at all, it's fanbase lies in the west.

Besides, for Federation Force, it's not a main series game. Those are a lot less enticing than main entries, Nintendo shouldn't expect to be able to slap the Metroid name on a game and expect profit after Metroid's five year absence. (Longer if people want to forget about Other M's existence.) I can't say that the fanbase's reaction is justified, but I can see where it stems from.

Metroids case isn't text heavy but fan demand. OtherM was hated by the fans and FederationForce was most likely a test if the demand is still there. Game companies hate fan demand that gets them more hate than praise. If fans end up not liking the product they wanted why give them more if they say they don't like it?

There's going to be another Splatfest on the 28th, this time it's Autobots vs Decepticons. No, I am not joking.

Man this game looks beautiful.

I'm sure this will increase sales for the Wii U drastically. I'm not sure if I'll get it, but it's not out of the question. Thoughts?

To be honest Tekken is probably one of my lesser favourites of the fighting game genre, but I'm actually looking forward to this game for some reason. Maybe it's just the idea of a Pokemon fighting game.


As for drastically boosting Wii U sales, I kind of doubt that, since neither Smash nor Mario Kart were able to do that very well.

I probably won't get it. I'm not a huge fan of Pokemon and fighting games outside of Smash aren't my cup of tea. As for Wii U sales, OS has a good point. But the game will probably sell like hot-cakes just on the Pokemon name alone.

I'm sure the fact that it has the Pokemon name on it will guarentee it to sell well, but it will most likely be from people who already own the system. I can't see many people buying a $300 console for a game that isn't even a main series Pokemon title and isn't really even a Pokemon game outside of the playable characters.

Tbh I think the only console Pokemon game that would be a sysyem seller is something in line of Gales of Darkness or a Pokemon MMO, which I really can't see happening any time soon.

You have a good point there. Although a lot of Pokemon fans don't own a WiiU and Tekken is a really popular fighting game. I'm sure not a lot of Tekken fans even own a WiiU so I'm going to assume that the die-hard fans wouldn't mind buying a wiiU to try out the new fighter.

I mean the Wii U does have Tekken Tag Tournament 2, but I doubt anyone actually bought it on Wii U. If it actually has stuff that makes it a lot different from other Tekken games they might, but I don't think it would be a worthwhile investment for what could be nothing but a Tekken game with a Pokemon skin. What I wonder is, will there be a competitive scene for it?

Also Nintendo filed for a console that does not have an optical disc drive. It would be kind of disappointing if the NX is digital/streaming only for games. Or worse, if they went back to cartridges.

You guys need to see this.

http://nintendonews.com/2015/08/vinyl-earthbound-soundtrack-west-2016/

I'm so hyped for this! 

On the side note, Japan gets this in October.

Whoa, that's amazing. Nintendo has been giving MOTHER a lot of love lately, I kind of wish it was available as CD though. My mom owns a record player, but once I move out, it'd just more or less be a big disk that won't get any use... But still, it's fantastic.

I'm really happy about the Splatoon soundtrack as well, definitely one of the more recent OSTs I've enjoyed. I just hope it'll come outside of Japan, otherwise I'll be forced to import and that can get pricey. Hopefully Nintendo will consider doing the same with Mario Kart 8, Super Mario 3D World, DKC Tropical Freeze and Pikmin 3's soundtracks. It'd be nice to have something official, ptherwise I guess rips are just as good.

I don't really think they expect you to play it. Vinyl's kinda just a hipster thing to collect anymore. Doesn't really make this any less cool though.

What do you guys think? Personally, it could go either way... The only thing keeping me from believing it is the amiibo art. It's from Smashified by ArtsyOmni, the very same guy who broke the internet with the Rayman "leak." But it does lign up rather well with PAX, considering the Plague of Shadows expansion being shown off and the SSB demo kiosks...

Anyways, as a character, I'd be excited. If any indie character got in, it would have to be either Shovel Knight or Shantae. And I personally like SK more, if only because I haven't played any Shantae games... However, I can't say SK is something I'd want over Isaac. :-P

I would strongly prefer Shantae. If only because she's been around a lot longer. This is kinda hard for me to beleive anyway.
