And my review of the game is finished too.  If you wanted an explanation as to why I like Senran Kagura, it gives you a lengthy one. :silvervhappy:

As good as Hideki Kamiya's games are, his games never sell well.

it matters

Sales matter.

If your game sells like ass you won't ever see anything else done with it. I have a lot of examples.

See:

Beyond Good & Evil (Sequel is currently in Development Hell and it is likely it won't ever be completed)
Zone of the Enders
Brutal Legend
Psychonauts
Every Hideki Kamiya game except the first Viewtiful Joe and the first Devil May Cry. Bayonetta 2 wouldn't have happened without Nintendo's crazy intervention.
Mega Man ZX series
Metroid
F-Zero
Starfox
Sin & Punishment
Console Monster Hunter games
and on and on and on and on I can keep intercourse ing going with this but won't.

If sales were better, we'd be seeing a Wii U version of Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. If sales were better, F-Zero and Starfox wouldn't be dead.

To be fair, Miyamoto has said he has no ideas for F-Zero and considers the franchise "done."

1. Hand it to the team that made F-Zero GX. Retain similar modes from GX. Doesn't necessarily need new racers, but include every racer from GX. Maybe even throw in some of the characters from the anime.
2. Introduce Online play
3. Bring back Death Race from F-Zero X, only this time, make it multiplayer and add new tracks that are suited for Death Race.
4. Pull a Mario Kart and bring back some old courses on top of new ones. Remix the old course music.
5. Let us customize our vehicles even further with interchangeable parts. Make a lot of different kinds of parts. Don't get rid of the way GX and X handled Max Speed/Acceleration tweaking though, keep that stuff too.
6. For the gamepad players, give them the option to use the Gyroscope feature to steer.
7. Include a new game mode where you get to use weapons like Wipeout/Mario Kart. Again, retain classic F-Zero modes on top of this.
8. It's gotta be HD

Let's be honest here. They just don't want to take risks with some of the more modest IPs anymore. If that is how Miyamoto truly feels, then he really is losing his touch.

You listed quite a lot of quality games there, Zero.  It just goes to show you that sales mean nothing.  The quality is what matters.

They don't make more games if they don't make money. It doesn't matter how good the game is. If it doesn't sell, they're not going to make more.

They make more games because there's an epic multi-installment story to be told.  At least the good companies do.  Not Ubisoft.

more money = more games
stories don't continue if there isn't a fund and means to continue a series
also you're right about ubisoft they suck

I think it's also that they really don't like giving a lot of time to games that are only popular in the West.

I mean, we saw what happens when Japanese devs make a modern Metroid game.

That was Team Ninja; they shouldn't have been trusted with it in the first place.
