Well, I'm still gonna give these games a chance. Although they're not up to the old Naka standard, they could still be sort of fun.

From what I heard, Famitsu was less than enthused giving it a 31/40. :lol:

Anything I'm missing?

Missing one part that i find quite amusing, Zero, my friend -
Sales sucked MAJORLY!

So, in conclusion, i can safely say that my prediction for 'Let's Tap' not selling too well is looking correct at this moment in time and judging by the fact that we are safely passed Christmas, the Holiday season is now over and purchasing games will most probably slow down now thus sales plummeting further. Let's Tap flopped even more than JoD's sales did so Naka is probably spinning in something quite smelly right now, lol.

Let's Tap. Let's not. XD

Whaddya wanna bet that 85% of those sales were from the population of penguins? :lol:

Is this thing being ported?

31 out of 40 doesn't sound like such a bad grade though..?

Dunno what kind of expectations Naka had for sales, but quirky titles generally don't sell too well, no matter what the quality of the game is. *cough*

But I guess the aim here is to humble Naka..

I see a lot of hate here for the game for reasons I don’t really think it deserves I mean has anyone here actually played it? 31/40 is not such a bad score I for one want to play it because from what I’ve seen of it looks really fun. For one I think Naka-san is brave for doing something original and risky and I applaud him for it.

It may be fun, but it's yet another mini-game compilation for a console which really doesn't need any more.
While it is indeed innovative, I was expecting more from Yuji Naka.

It probably plays wonderfully. My LOL was at the fact that it sold next to nothing.

I think people are a little annoyed with Naka. He was apparently known for being really original with his game design, he went away and established PROPE and people had waited nearly two years to see what he was going to bring out as his first title. A lot of people believed he lost his streak a while ago and needed something to revive their belief in the man. After two years we're given a game that penguins can play. Insulted that we bothered waiting for him to do something? Just a tad. It seems gone are the days where he would create games with heart in it like NiD and Burning Rangers. Now he wants to make cliche marketed games that is being overdone already thanks to the Wii. He's two years too late with the gimmicks.

In my eyes (and judging by the sales figure) PROPE is off to a shabby start.

Lets Tap is a start and from what I've been hearing he's also working on a Sonic style platform game as well. Not sure if thats true though.

Yes it's true, it was mentioned earlier in this thread. I'm waiting for this other game because for me Let's Tap looks... useless.

meh, I can see some probable issues with the "penguin friendly" control scheme...
But I think I'll stick with something a little less... sad...

Yeah thats true looks like Naka-san took all the emos from Sonic Team with him. And is it just me but what is Naka wearing? He looks like an old man in that get up, if I was his age I would wear something a lot cooler then that. Still I like the comments he’s given there.

very interesting interview I myself would not mind seeing more Let's games in the future. I do hope SEGA decide to bring Let's Catch over here because we need something new and different for the WiiWare service

It does seem like this could be one of the Wii's best 'causal' titles, and that's not an offense, just reflects the laid back nature of the game. Seems like Naka still knows what he's doing, I'm super curious about that other title he always mentions..

A little weird, but interesting... Honestly though, I don't think Naka cares any more. He's done his opus. Now he's pretty much enjoying his sunset years making mini games.

This manages to disappoint me in so many ways it's not funny. Ok, maybe it is kind of funny.

First off, when are they going to stop dragging their feet or whatever it is they're doing and make a real game? Why Windows mobile? Does MS still even support that OS? The idea of playing as a Kiwi had me flashing back to interviews about NiGHTS into Dreams..., about how one of Naka's first ideas was playing as a little bird learning to fly... I thought this game might be that. NO! It's another one of those games that are essentially just touch and go ripoffs.
