Video game news articles and journalists confuse me to no end. Everybody keeps saying "This is the console generation where Nintendo will have to bow out of the industry." to which I have this to say: How do you figure? :?

Nintendo is doing fine! Maybe I just have a better memory than them, but this always happens when it comes to Nintendo products. When the NES first came to North America in 1985, nobody thought anyone would buy it, not after the video game market crash of 1983. When they announced the Super Nintendo in 1991, everybody was clamoring on about how it would never sell as well as the Sega Genesis. Just last console generation, most people thought the Nintendo Wii wouldn't do as well as the PS3 and XBOX 360.

What happened in all these situations? The NES revived the dying video game market in North America, the Super Nintendo outclassed the Sega Genesis in the early 90's, and the Wii outsold the PS3 and XBOX 360! None of this happened immediately; in every one of these situations, it was a slow start for Nintendo, but they always came back strong and finished at or near the top! With the release of Super Smash Bros on the 3DS and the Wii U, Nintendo is set to make the same comeback they always make around this time!

"Nintendo doesn't have the Third Party support it needs to stay afloat in the industry!" the gaming articles keep telling me, to which I say "You mean those third party developers like EA that everyone hates?" One thing that has never happened to me when I buy a First Party title from Nintendo is Buyer's Remorse. I got it when I bought Marvel vs Capcom 3, only to find out six months later Capcom was releasing Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3. :explosion: So what did I buy, a $60 beta test? I have yet to buy any game from Capcom since this incident. I'm glad I never picked up Diablo 3, despite being such a huge fan of Diablo and Diablo 2. I have friends who bought Dragon Age 2 and regretted it, there are lots of people who regret buying some game or another, myself included. The one company that has never sold me a game I later went back and said "I wish I hadn't wasted money on this." was Nintendo!

"The early games on the Wii U weren't that great." They go on to say. Really? The first games I got for my Wii U were New Super Mario Bros U and Super Mario 3D world. Both of those games were certainly better than Titanfall, Destiny, Watch Dogs, and all those other games that were hyped to be the next huge gaming franchise! That's not even my opinion either; the scores on Metacritic AGREE with me! (That's saying something considering I usually do not agree with Metacritic scores) Now I have Hyrule Warriors and Super Smash Bros on the Wii U, two games I am having a blast playing!

Then I notice that none of these articles mention how well the 3DS is doing. The 3DS is the MOST popular console in Japan right now! It's more popular than the three big consoles over there! I keep hearing people talking about how Nintendo is going to lose the portable market to IOS games, which my only response is....
:lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao: :lol: :rofl: :lmao:

Nobody can possibly say that with a straight face. IOS games are small applications that barely even qualify as "games" that are almost universally terrible, and have pay walls in place to halt what fun you might have and then steal from your wallet $.45 at a time. Nobody can seriously think something like that is going to compete with the 3DS, especially now that Super Smash Bros 3DS is out, along with the new Pokémon games.

The way I see it, Nintendo isn't going away anytime soon in the video game industry, no matter how many people seem to believe otherwise. If any part of the industry is going to be left behind and forgotten, I see it being the endless supply of carbon copy First Person Shooters that have flooded the market. Anybody who thinks the next huge game franchise is going to be another GTA clone or another FPS that plays like Call of Duty or Halo, the only thing I can say in response is "You're wrong."

PPZ3 5 Nights at Freddy's? by RCBlazer
PPZ3 5 Nights at Freddy's?
Requested by :iconpowerpuffground: I attempt to design Freddy Fazbear and his pals from Five Nights at Freddy's in Powerpuff Z 3. I ran into a few... limitations. ^^; I could only give Freddy the hat or the ears, not both, and there was only one kind of red tie for Bonnie, among other things.

Hair Style Meme By Valbasting by RCBlazer
Hair Style Meme By Valbasting
I've been wanting to fill out this Meme by :iconxxpowertuffgirlxx: for a while now, but I couldn't decide which character to use. (I wanted to use either Violet, Blackheart, Siryn, Banshee, or Blaze by :iconkatypics: )

Finally, for laughs I said "Why don't I just have Blazer do the hairstyle meme?" and the idea was so funny I actually did it! :lol:

I had both Alliance and Horde characters. I used ChibiMaker to show off a few of them, but I did have more than the 5 shown in the top row in the picture.
