Ah, yes, I love that franchise.maximalist566 said:Funny thing is, there is still a Capcom franchise that's pretty much exclusive to Nintendo consoles. That's Ace Attorney - only been out on DS, Wii and 3DS as far as I remember. And it's doing pretty good there. (Yes, I know that there are iPad versions as well, but I don't really count it as a "gaming platform")
Capcom refusing to bring physical copies of the last games to EU/US doesn't help their popularity. And about PC - I think Nintendo won't allow it, to be honest. Danganronpa was brought to PC despite being a PS Vita-only game that is much more popular in Japan than other world.Bedinsis said:Ah, yes, I love that franchise.maximalist566 said:Funny thing is, there is still a Capcom franchise that's pretty much exclusive to Nintendo consoles.

Though that's probably due to that being a franchise that you spend 70 % of the time reading and is therefore best suited to handhelds. And in the handheld department Nintendo has always been king.
Though I hope they'll some day release a PC port, since that's apparently a lucrative platform nowadays. But from what I've understood Ace Attorney is A LOT more popular in Japan than abroad, and the Japanese don't really play on PCs so I doubt we'll see that happen.
What's there to say?! Its awesome, Leon is a dork, Luis is a sexy man, boing boing, 'your hand comes off?', LEEEOONN!, bang bang, woof.Johnny Novgorod said:I'm still holding out for a retro review of RE4. Surprised he hasn't done one already.
If it is of any conselation, it was a rather terrible port of the GC version.Rawbeard said:someone didn't have anything to review this week. either way, why do I just now learn RE4 was on the PS2 while I had a PS2? not cool, not cool at all.
This. Despite never owning the original XBOX, I knew it was the most powerful graphically compared to the GameCube & PS2. Playing them at a friends, and a couple of game stores made me realize that early on.Samtemdo8 said:Uh Yatzhee the Xbox is techincally the more powerful than the Gamecube during that time.
Its ranked like this:
Xbox > Gamecube > PS2.
And I can tell some Xbox games have increadibly gorgeous graphics that outshines the other consoles.
Ninja Gaiden 1, Halo 2, Jade Empire, Conker's Bad Fur Day looked even better than Star Fox Adventures, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory?
THe Xbox even could play games that were made for the PC like Rainbow Six and Doom 3 and even fuckin Morrowind. (Albiet the latter with increadibly shitty framerate and draw distance.)
The jokes for them will write themselves.Igor-Rowan said:Well, Color Splash is next week so Yahtzee can use his Wii U for the last time since it's the last major game. I am expecting his next one to be the best review of recently as the year has been kind of slow even before E3 and that hadn't given him enough material.
I honestly appreciate Capcom's habit of shouting "exclusive!!!" and then backing away quickly, I just wish the other developers did the same with Square Enix having to keep their mouths shut for 1 year about Rise of the Tomb Raider and FromSoftware not wanting to port Bloodborne to anything less than the PS4 (not even PC?!)
For Yahtzee's next gaming history, he should talk about Conspiracy Entertainment, the company that took shovelware to the next level.
Monster Hunter's main audience is in Japan. It was never all that popular in the West.09philj said:And then, interestingly, Capcom's semi-annual money shitting machine Monster Hunter has made a swift turnaround from being a Sony exclusive to being an almost complete Nintendo exclusive once they worked out how to sell it to western audiences, although that may change if Sony can make a handheld that people outside of Japan actually buy.
