Nintendo first quarter results remain completely horrible.MK sold a ton but it did not move systems. Only 500k wii u systems sold the last three months worldwide. 3DS sales are down 50% from last year, holy shit. They lost $100 million already, though a lot of that came from outside expenses, not really from the game sales.

3DS is the scary part, that thing is sinking fast.

It really is sad, but did they expect one game to make that much of a difference?  If so, they are stupid.  Last year, the 3DS had a phenomenal roll out of quality games.  It seems like every month they had at least one huge title.  I can't even think of one single title that stands out this year, besides Tomodaichi Life.

They're stretching themselves too thin between console and handheld...back when game developmentwas cheaper and required less people they could get away with it. Now they can't. I can totally see their next machine being some kind of hybrid device like people have said.

Yup. It's obvious that Nintendo simply cannot sustain two different platforms with enough games for an entire generation. Most 3rd parties are done with Nintendo, so they need to give up on that pipe dream, and focus all of their attention on a single platform.

I enjoy games that attempt new things even if it's not great (it's not bad at all either, classic snipe people mission) than games that have no variety at all.

It feels shitty to play, goes on for too long, and comes after 30 minutes of trudging through boring shit (not 100% on the order here, but I know that whole section was a major snore fest). Don't follow or precede cinematic walking with one of the most annoying and uninteresting "classic" excuses for variety. Nyaa It's bad variety, and it's executed badly. In short: it sucks.

It comes after you having to get to the sniper which was one of the best gameplay scenarios in the game. Once you get there you get a great cutscene then you have to do the mission and then super awesome invasion happens right after. It fits perfectly with the story, works as a great action segment. It does last too long and it is simple cause the gunplay isnt the best in TLOU but again no where near suck. Nothing sucks in TLOU really.

And that is my take on it.

Woah GS cleaned house. I hope they all land jobs, even though I hope I never have to read a McShae review again. Nyaa

Oh yeah, that crappy stealth part...damn I'd forgotten about that until you mentioend it. Thanks a lot. Nyaa Yeah, that whole section still sucked, but I stand corrected on the reasons.
