"I don’t care for what was announced, so the things announced don’t matter!"

The Persona 5 news alone is super exciting for me.

Wasn’t this the same complaint we saw when the PS3 and 360 first came out?

Yeah. As a kid, I definitely craved a true Chrono Trigger sequel, but as an adult, I’m sure anything they release would fail to live up to expectations. Shame that fan-made 3D remake got canceled by Square, though – it really looked gorgeous, especially for the time.

I feel like FF7 was at least announced for the PlayStation pretty early into its release, as I specifically remember choosing the PlayStation over the N64 simply because that’s where I knew Final Fantasy was going.

I feel bad, because this was literally my experience with Lost Odyssey.

  1. Turn on game
  2. Play for a bit, moderately enjoying self
  3. Sit through, approximately, a thousand cutscenes
  4. Realize I hadn’t seen a save point in over an hour
  5. Quit and send game back to GameFly

While I know JRPGs are notorious for that sort of thing, Lost Odyssey seemed particularly egregious when it came to lack of respect for the player’s time. Without the ability to “suspend” the system, what was I supposed to do if real life came knocking halfway through that hour? It’s a shame, because I’m sure I missed a great game – an HD remake with a saner save structure, or even just leveraging the suspend ability of the Xbox One and (hopefully soon) the PS4, would be quite welcome.

This was one of my favorite titles last year. Good stuff.

I’m ready to buy it just for the title alone.

Wow, this is a re-release I may actually benefit from, since I never got around to playing it earlier.

I’d argue “Wii U” and “New Nintendo 3DS” are probably the most confusing Nintendo console names thus far; everything else was clearly different from the predecessor.

Every time this happens, the new console sells just fine.

Except, you know, the Wii U.

The Game Boy Color came out 9 years after the Game Boy as a new console. As far as I know, the Pocket and the Light didn’t play exclusive games. People keep making this comparison, but it’s completely invalid.

Don’t mistake this for anything but what it is; Nintendo announced a new console today, albeit one that’s entirely backwards-compatible. After their issues selling the Wii U to consumers, they’ve decided the best strategy is to release a confusing new handheld console, under a confusing new name. What are you even doing, Nintendo? Why does this thing exist? Why do you spend so much time putting together awesome special-edition models of the 3DS XL only to turn around and make them all completely obsolete? This is a smartphone-esque upgrade of an existing device in a marketplace where people have very little tolerance for that sort of hardware fragmentation bullshit.

I want to love you, Nintendo, but it’s hard for me to want to continue to financially support a company that doesn’t seem to have any clear idea what it’s doing.
