@GalacticMario28 How about the entire concept of a world map? SMW maps are connected, sure, but that really hasn't been utilized since...actually I can't think of another time they did a fully connected map. Maybe Yoshi's Island. They've done only the hub world concept starting at least with SM64.

@Mega719 That's what I thought as well. I think this guy is underestimating the complexity of 3D work let alone developing a huge roster of teams comprised entirely of historical figures. Seems more like a games development itch just needing to be scratched.

If I were like the Spiky Bird guy I would rip this entire idea and make it 2D.

3MonthBeef commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

Seeing these results make me think how I stumbled across Chrono Trigger. I was sold on the box art and the description alone. Didn't see or read one advertisement for it. All I knew as it came from Squaresoft who made SoM and FFVI which were testaments to greatness incarnate. Fast-forward to today and most of these games give me little reason to go out on a and buy them. Practically no game writes a world immersing description. Most have rather lame artwork (excused if said game is part of an established franchise).

I say all this to mean two things although there probably is a hidden gem in some of these titles, first impressions may put most people off to buying them.

I surprise myself how often I complain about movies to game never works yet simultaneously having nothi0gn but fond memories of this game. This was the CoD of yesteryear, minus online capability, great main campaign and ridiculously fun multiplayer that to this day seems unmatched. There was always something gleefully (read:morbidly) enjoyable perfectly positioning proximity mines and rewarded with a kill.

3MonthBeef commented on More Minecraft Mania Looks Set for Wii U With ...:

@CrazyMetroid I was thinking more of U Craft, which plans to release by December. So if these guys are somehow in competition with each other then i suspect Stone Shire will try to release just as quickly which means what you basically see now is what you'll likely get in the future. In the case of Nexis games who are making U Craft base on their first outing with BrickBlast U I expect another unpolished game.

If these guys were serious about Minecraft on Wii U you'd think they'd pool their resources together to make a real polished game. As of now their each just capitalizing on the Wii U demographic wishing for some kind of Minecraft clone not caring much about polish or even a marked improvement over that which inspired it.

3MonthBeef commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

@Daruncic Right!? I mean what game with online MP hasn't suffered from drop game sessions, questionable hit detection, freezes etc? EA alone is proof enough for that.

The whole WiiU has poor online multiplayer is being blown way out of the league here. The only they don't do is voice chat and frankly for me I hate when people use the feature solely to annoy other plays by chewing into the mic, having a side conversation with whoever else is in the room or playing loud music for all to hear.

@Kaze_Memaryu Democracy sucks when only stupid, lazy or uninformed people vote.

And as for the developer of this "fine" game:
There is nothing more annoying than people hiding behind technicalities to sidestep otherwise obvious points. (quote adapted from amillionhp on gamespot).

1) D-pad should have been an option.
2) People applying that much force have no sense of the dead zone. Heck no sense of what it takes to register a movement. It isn't much. Its not an arcade stick and cabinet. Don't treat it as such.
3) Same people breaking these are likely the same people who pound on the pedestrian crosswalk traffic button a hundred times.
4) Same people likely broke a Wiimote and/or slapped someone in the face with one.
5) At least now they have the perfect excuse to get the New 3DS!

3MonthBeef commented on Review: The Fall (Wii U eShop):

@NodesforNoids You may need to recalibrate your definition of a remake. Wind Waker HD is a remake. Resident Evil for PS4/Xbone will be a remake. DmC is a reboot. Your examples are sequels/prequels.The Prime series are prequels to Super Metroid and Other M and Fusion are after Super Metroid.

Point well taken. Actually I've heard Microsoft has a clause where they can refuse the release of a game that doesn't appear on their console first or at the same time. That also might be what's going on. I guess to your point maybe SMS wants to cash in sooner rather than later and then use the remaining funds to finish the Wii U project. The whole thing is just a debacle and shouldn't be worth anyone's time. For people who say they will buy it I wonder how many of them will actually remember this game whenever it releases next year?

@Neko_Rukiafan "We hope that backers will consider using this provision only in cases where they feel that a creator has not made a good faith effort to complete the project and fulfill." Meaning SMS could always argue that they have done just that and poof..... off they go to the bank with backers' money; or refund just the Wii U backers.

Seems like the Jobs system from the Final Fantasy series. So I'm a bit disappointed in that since I thought the class you chose would be permanent for that play-through. Would have been cool to have the save the world adventure tailored through the experience of a miner, angler or paladin without actually having to switch between anyone of those during the quest.

i keep thinking you will rarely, if ever, see someone try to accomplish something like this with more mature themed games. Its the simple fun games that appeal to most people and is more accessible in this way.

Will we ever see a LEGO Bioshock level, Resident Evil or Tomb Raider?

3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:

@SamirMalik Yes I agree other companies have done a similar thing. Bu this is Nintendo we're talking about it and they have a reputation of keeping this business strictly about the games. Not making subtle political commentary or otherwise. Like I said I thing for Nintendo's position it sbest to keep what's real and current in our daily lives separate from the events of the game worlds they present to us.

Again other companies can and do this sort of thing but, again Nintendo is more traditional in how they proceed. I mean they didn't include their former president in any game as some way of honoring him so to do so much for a celebrity I can see it from their perspective as kind of off base or out of character, which again could set unwanted precedence down the road.

3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:

@MrGawain I agree. Gamer fans would find something wrong and that could hurt Nintendo. They shied away from the same-sex misunderstanding in Tomodachi Life so this I figure they will steer clear from incorporating into their games. Now other companies do this kind of thing: Mega Man using rock legend allusions Axl Rosered = Axl from Guns and Roses for example. But this is NIntendo.

@SamirMalik
1. There are degrees of appropriateness and level regarding that, given the context centered around this discussion.
2. I know that. Be just as weird if the Final Fantasy VI remakes included Luciano Pavarotti or some likeness along side Celes during her Opera performance. It takes away from the immersion of the gaming experience.

Plus how does one capture Robin in the game? By the characters he played on screen or the man he was?

But that's just me with my opinion is all.

3MonthBeef commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

I'm one of hte few that chose none of the above and here's why:
1) Might as well make SMG 3, plus SMG 2 was recent within reason
2) Metroid Prime Triology, same reason as above
3) The two racing games mechanics are straight forward enough that it would benefit more with a new game the introduces new mechanics.

If they could I rather see:
No More Heroes (utilizing the Wii Motion Plus for better swordplay)
Sin and Punishment (part 1) to keep up pacing with its sequels aesthetic
Castlevania 64 (the intended full version of the game). Wii Motion Plus controls or Pro controller options.

3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:

People's emotions are high but we the gamers need to be objective. The petition is basically asking us to incorporate a real world element into a fantasy world; and mixing the two together would bring about the wrong kind of experience over the game itself.

Think a few years after the game releases, his presence in the game can be a sad undertow to some, while unintentional. Plus, an American actor in Japanese purely fantasy game? That's a lot of barriers Nintendo be crossing with their isolated universe. Its a lot to introduce and could set an unwelcomed precedence.

There's a stealing of thunder aspect to it which in the knee jerk reaction might be good but in the long run can mire the gaming experience.

Yey, more screenshots from the PC version sarcasm
By the time the Wii U version comes out it will be 20% cheaper on the other systems. The other consoles aren't slouching with their offerings making them the better choice over Wii U's lack of on-time third party games.
