This should have easily been Nintendo, for the sheer number of quality games and cool to addictive franchises. Plus my impulsive urge to purchase any console or handheld they release. But...well...just like every other machine the 100 year old company release, they always seem to have a long and dry demise as the next one takes over. But that doesn't happen to the handhelds oddly enough...
The GameCube had a long and dull end, with very little to nothing new coming to the console game wise, during the readying of the Wii, and I'm starting to see that with the Wii currently too. The only Wii game I can recall, that will be worth getting before a wild WiiU appears, would be Kirby's 20th Anniversary game, but I don't even know when that is supposed to be released...
Another thing the big N do that annoys me, despite being a Nintendo fan boy, is the region lock. I was so disappointed to learn about the 3DS and that very issue. Being European, there are a lot of gold that will never see the light of day here. I don't care about not understanding a language, any and all fans will find a way around that. Yet they insist on forcing us to import a local machine to play the local games. It was cool to be able to play any game for any region on the GBA and original DS. Plus I don't understand if there's a financial benefit to the region lock, or not...
SEGA can't possibly take the top. I do enjoy most Sonic games, but often get bored with Super Monkey Ball and...well...they don't seem to give enough attention to there offer franchises.
They also don't seem to be using Platinum Games to it's full potential. I clearly saw that in the Anarchy Reigns thread. There called "Platinum Games"
for goodness sake! They could create a game called "The Crappiest Game In Gaming History" and it would still be f*cking awesome!!
...oh...that's right, this is a topic about your favourite game developers. Not a topic about potential mistakes, game companies make.Nippon Ichi SoftwareThe Unofficial Mascot, Dood!
Everything needs something...unique, that once seen, you instantly think of whatever that...unique something is supposed to represent. For NIS, that has to be the Prinny, dood. The Prinny also represents the companies sense of humour which almost always makes it into there games. Kinda like the Prinny himself, who will often appear in random games. Digging deeper into those games can often net you an appearance from other characters from the franchise the Prinny first appear in.Even The Europeans, Dood!?
Once upon a time, I would see the type of games that NIS would create and think "Heh, I bet that doesn't leave Japan." Because of my cynical nature, I often enjoy being wrong. As not only did those games make it to the US, they surprised me even further by sending them here, to the EU area. And this almost always happens with NIS games.
Sadly there are still a handful of games that don't make it to other countries. At the top of my list of disappointments would have to be La Pucelle: Ragnarok, for PSP. A port of Tactics on PS2.Takehito Harada & Tenpei Sato, Dood!
Need I say more?
I'm gonna hafta cut this post shorter than I wanted, as I have to go off the computer now. I might edit in the rest later, but at the moment, my Dad insists on checking out ebay for who knows how long, so I gotta go... T_T
