It's really got to do more with the fact that I just want someone competent to write a new story for games based off HP's setting, rather the unmitigated disgust I feel for everything Nintendo-related, including all of you fuckers that keep gobbling up its shit over the years.

Well I guess you want complete bullshit then. Who gives two shits about the story as long as it's an interesting setting with good gameplay?

I think the epilogue of Deathly Hallows shows that the story focused on the existing characters can't realy go anywhere without descending into fanfiction level nonsense. A Nintendo approach to making Harry Potter games would be the best idea.
>>
>>282687113

You misunderstand. I want a new cast of characters, I want nothing to do with Harry Potter save that its setting be used and Hogwarts.

Nintendo would just focus on toddler bullshit.
>>
>>282687113
The epilogue of Deathly Hallows was just Rowling selling out to the hard-core fans so the books was the least controversial and fan safe as humanly possible.
I'll say it now and forever: I bet Rowling wanted to kill Harry but fans were so in this crap she feared fans may follow suit and kill themselves for letting the Mc die in the end.

How is a company this inept still in business?
>>
>>282681032

If it isn't exclusive the rates go down because the company involved doesn't want to pay out the ass for a competing product. With exclusivity, the games are guaranteed to print money. Therefore, bidding wars for exclusive rights. Sucks, but that is the way of the EA jew.

Because 4chan is a japanese culture board, and a lot of Anons agree with Nintendo's traditional values? A lot of Japanese companies shit over western developers because they don't match Japan's values. Sega once stop Sega of America from making Sonic Cartoon tie-in game because "IT'S NOT MUH SONIC". We have dozens of threads lately about how the west doesn't understand how to make girls, how to make boss fights, and other shit like. .Hell there was interviews of some japanese developer calling Bioshock complete trash.

NIntendo back in the 90's wasn't anti-western through, it was the very opposite. N64 and Gamecube had pretty good western support. It's the Wii/DS era when in Iwata took is when Nintendo became MarioBox, and Japanese-centric..

I'm not really into Naruto. Actually, HP is really the only franchise I want to read fics of, because it makes me feel like there's so much more potential to the characters and setting than what was delivered in the books.

Potential for expansion. The world is so rich in characters, environments, unexplored avenues and mechanics that it makes the derivative material of it equal or better than the original.

Basically, it allows fanfiction of it to have a high chance to be good even if the writer isn't that great.

For example, while His Dark Materials is the better series, there's pretty much not a single good fanfiction of it, because the story is self-contained with no leftover plot hooks. Everything in the story is there because it needed to be for the plot to be good. Rowling was great at adding pointless bullshit for variety and atmosphere.

I don't know how to better explain it without sounding pretentious.

Final smash: Sword of Gryffindor and Invisibility Cloak
Dumbledore's phoenix flies in and drops the items into Harry's hands. For a time, he becomes invisible (no damage taken like with cloaking device) and gets a much stronger set of A moves

As a matter of fact, I did.

In fact, one of them was ludicrously addicted for HP fanfiction, although I haven't seen him in years now. That was long before I even considered reading some myself, a fact that makes me a little sad, since we might have had something to talk about there. The others I still see on a regular basis.

Gambon was a terrible Dumbledore for the entirety of his film time. Harris was perfect for the role but was frail because of his health/age. Dumbledore in every situation was always calm, polite and in control. Gambon had no clue how to play the character because he hadn't read the books before taking the role and thus fucked it up royally. McKellan should've played Dumbledore after Harris passed

1) I don't think Harris ever read nor cared for the books either

>Harris did his job, Gambon didn't.

Only because his granddaughter wanted him to. The films are also adaptations , which by necessity deviate from the source material. I'm a huge fan of ASOIAF and the show hugely deviates from the books. I don't get upset when they feel the need to change a character for the show.

You know that they've cut Euron from the show, right?

Fuck I'm so furious they cut JonCon. Quentyn too, as irrelevant as he is, I really liked him.

I never read that either. I didn't discover the fantasy and sci-fi genres until I was in middle school. By that time I was already at high school/college reading level, so I completely bypassed the dreck that is young adult fantasy.

>Hogwarts is one of the names David Bowie calls Hoggle in Labyrinth
To be fair it's kind of a simple thing to come up with, you just flip the syllables in Warthog. I found an old drawing book I had from when I was like 8 and it had a pig monster called a "Hogwart" in it, long before Harry Potter.

God they got lazy with this shit. I've only read the first couple of books, so I'm just going to blame this on the movies.
>>
>>282694217
>Gryffindor with Ravenclaw score almost equal
I'm ok with this. Both are based houses. Slytherin is for edgelords (also who thought it would be a good idea to have a separate house for the evil kids?)and Hufflepuff is fucking Hufflepuff. Their great merit is being hard working pussies.

The movies definitely went a lot more full retard than the books, but the books got significantly worse after maybe the 4th one. 1-3 best, 4 still good, 5 meh and 6-7 dogshit.

OFFICIAL MOVIE RANKING
1: prisoner of askaban
2: chamber of secrets
3: philosophers stone
4: order of the pheonix
5: goblet of fire
6: half blood prince
7: deathly hallows
Goblet of fire would be way higher if it wasn't overly grimdark and followed the book better.
>>
>>282716807
>who thought it would be a good idea to have a separate house for the evil kids
It's the best thing about Harry Potter, there is literally a house of 90% evil fucks all together learning powerful magic
How do they expect it to turn out?

You know, Im thinking if there was gonna be a book about the previous generation, it should be from Lupin's perspective.
It could go all the way from his childhood to his death.
Reasons:
A. He lives the longest of the main characters from that gen aside from Snape but
B and more importantly. We know the least about what hes been doing over the course of the series. We know exactly what Snape and Sirius were doing from James and Lilly's death all the way to their deaths for the most part, aside from like half of book 4 for Sirius. But we don't know what Lupin is doing for most of that time except for when he was teaching. We could see more about the werewolf community since we know he was trying to recruit them but hear nothing else about that.
C. It would be interesting to see how one of the previous gen feels about all his friends dying one by one. Though we don't exactly see much of it, he must have been pretty depressed when Sirius died.

Are the lego games good? Can you explore the castle at all?

>>282717909
Yes, the Lego Harry Potter games are based.

Easy as fuck, because aimed at kids, but so much fucking fun.
>>
>>282717909
>Can you explore the castle at all?
Hogwarts, Diagon Alley and that village the kids sneak off to are the hub world.
>>
>>282717767
I agree but I'd rather not have that book at all. I want something new and less predictable. We already know the outcome more or less. It'd be good to have a fresh MC that isn't The Chosen One fighting against The Great Evil, but I want them to be somebody totally new. They could maybe touch on the previous books but I want no more than that.

I wish she'd gone with the fake-out and had Neville be The Chosen One. That shit would have blown minds.
>>
>>282718976
In a way I agree, but on the other hand not. A huge part of the charm of HP is that it's kind of comfy and doesn't try to do too much, and when it did get darker and more serious it got a (deservedly) mixed response. Pulling plot twists like that would've made it worse, I think.

Having no Chosen One at all would be ideal.

>People being surprised that Nintendo pushed for anime

Codename Steam was made with an "American influenced style" and it was unanimously agreed that the style completely sucked.

It's not that nintendo thought anime was a good idea, it's because they are incapable of making something otherwise

Does anime style take any skill in character design at all? Just take the same face and stick some wacky hair on it and some clothes then give the character one of about only 10 different personality archetypes.
