James Wynne commented on Beyond Good and Evil 2 reportedly a timed Nintendo Switch exclusive:
It's going to have more first party games than most Nintendo consoles. Before, First party games were divided between console and handheld. Now handheld and console games are all on one platform. It's also going to get tons of great games from the Japanese third parties: Nintendo has a gun to the head of every handheld developer in Japan: Sony has pulled out of the handheld market, so Nintendo is the only game in town. Monster Hunter, KanColle, Fire Emblem, Miku, Yokai Watch, Pokemon, and all the other notable handheld franchises are a lock for Switch. You like JRPGs? Nintendo doesn't, but they'll be getting every new JRPG going forward because the Japanese market will buy more Switches than PS4s, period.. The lineup for the Switchis already better than the Wii U, especially with every major Wii U game will come to the switch in improved form: Smash Pokken Mario Kart Splatoon (big as single sku CoD if Switch takes off) 3D Mario Zelda Fire Emblem Pokemon Mario Maker Xenoblade Chronicles X Dark Souls Ports Skyrim Sports games Ace Attorney Yooka-Laylee Shinen's next game Metroid (Retro has been working on a game for 3 years) Donkey Kong Pikmin 4 Mario Party 11 Animal Crossing Kirby Mario and Luigi Paper Mario Mario Sports games Bravely Game Cube VC Yokai Watch Hatsune Miku Etrian Odyssey Kantai Collection Monster Hunter Dragon Quest Captain Toad Mario and Sonic Sonic Mario x Rabbids Lego games Layton Rhythm Heaven Shin Megami Tensei Godeater NIS games Warriors games Anime games Yeah some of those aren't announced, but I'm willing to put dollars to donuts that over 90% of that list is out within 24 months of release.

What's the problem? People wanted Nintendo to work with third parties, so now Nintendo is chipping in to save another game that probably wouldn't come out with their help, and you're going to bitch about it?

James Wynne commented on Super Mario Run's revenue projections have been dashed by almost 75%:
I don't think we see eye to eye on everything. I don't think many, if any, Nintendo mainline franchises are stagnant. Yeah, there are tons of Mario Games, but the differences between Mario Galaxy, Super Mario 3D World, and Mario Maker are freaking huge compared to say the differences between Ubisoft AAA games. The only mainline flagship franchise that you could have said had stagnated, was Zelda, and Breath of the Wild has completely shaken up that formula. Mario is always different, Metroid needs to stop being different, new Zelda is wildly different, Fire Emblem Fates is superbly different, new Pokemon (only partly Nintendo owned) has changed the formula, Xenoblade is amazing, Sure Pikmin is more of the same, but it's a smaller title that had had all of 3 games. DKCTF was another sidescrolling platformer, but at least it's the best side scrolling platformer in a decade. People say Mario Kart is stale, but they're wrong, and just like Smash, there's only so much you can do new with fighting games and racing around a track. I also think premium mobile games are great, because they provide a whole experience without cutting the game up into baby pieces and selling it to you in an endless loop of nickel and dime-ing. I hated Super Mario Run until I heard is was a $10, one time fee and I could play as much as I wanted without having to buy energy or sit there with my thumb crammed up my ass until an arbitrary timer counted down to 0. Soon as it's on Android I'll by the shit out of it to show my support for proper gaming on a smart device instead of trash like candy crush.or clicker game garbage.

James Wynne commented on Review: Final Fantasy XV is a tale of two games:
I'll argue that FFXV is better than the Witcher 3 easily. The Witcher 3 is a terrible game because the combat feels awful. It's a great story, has a wonderful amount of effort put into it, but I'd rather watch it as a film (thanks youtube) or read the books. FFXV combat isn't exactly the best, but it's at least competent, something that absolutely cannot be said for Wither 3. Also minor visual issues does not equate to a "last generation game." Take off the nostalgia goggles and get some fucking glasses. I am curious though as to how the pop-in and texture issues differ between XB1 and PS4, which I played on. I did sometimes notice the texture issues, but I never noticed any egregious pop-in, but I may be numb to it because I've put over 400 hours into Xenoblade Chronicles X, which actually has the worst pop in of this generation. That story though. It's simplicity is refreshing after the 13 clusterfuck, and it progresses nicely from best buddy road trip to struggle for the world, with clear character motivations. I actually liked that some major events happened off screen, because it gives the sense that the entirety of the world's events do not revolve around the player, and it leaves the players just as in the dark as the characters.
