3MonthBeef commented on Bandai Namco's Project Treasure Is Now Called ...:

Now that's how advertising should be. I heard about this awhile back and forgot about it. But they did it smart by actually having something tangible following the fast announcement of the name change. Signalling in my mind that development is actually moving along and the developers are confident to release whatever they have going on on schedule regardless of the beta testing results.



3MonthBeef commented on FAST Racing NEO Developer Shin’en Multimedia...:

This probably the only Wii U game that does lighting well. Practically every other game has a muted or washed out look to it. It would Shin'en know how to deal with the hardware better than most and arguably even Nintendo. This game even in alpha footage looks great.



3MonthBeef commented on Mario History: Super Mario Bros. 3 - 1990:

Its really the only game that a developer was confident in that they marketed it in this way. It can't be replicated. Ever. Even if you imagine a game ever releasing without bugs today, Nintendo did it first and the gaming landscape was concentrated almost entirely down to Nintendo.



3MonthBeef commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

The difference between Iwata sharing details within his company during IWata asks and Chris Pranger is obvious....he was freaking Iwata! On top of that I;m sure Iwata asked permission before just roping his employees or business partners into a room for am ambush. C'mon guy. Integrity must be upheld with some kind of hierarchy over what is said. Remember that guy from Microsoft who got fired over the Xbox One policies? Adam Orth.

I swear the gaming community is so quick to forget the industry has its own firing squad: except wen it comes to Nintendo.



3MonthBeef commented on Feature: Taking to the Skies for a Final Look ...:

The action just seems really slow in this one. It might be intensive looking at the gampad but just looking at the arwing floating there stationary while the reticle moves about is just not very exciting even if you're a just watching participant.

The dog fight gameplay with Z-targeting is a nice addition though but that alone won't warrant a buy from me. Too bad you can Z-target any enemy as it seems to be just for bosses.

Overall too much of the game is basically N64.



3MonthBeef commented on Video: Latest Teens React Episode Proves Age H...:

Either these kids are being fake or they are the modern face of gamers today. If it's the latter the developers are catering to this slice of the gaming demographic. The nongamer gamer. I mean they kept walking into enemies.



3MonthBeef commented on Talking Point: It's Too Early to Write Off the...:

I swear every single Wii U screenshot looks washed out. The games do in real life too. Now I hear people saying "oh just adjust your tv settings.." but no. Its more than that. It seems to lack real dynamic lighting effects, or something. I'm a GPU guy so I don't know more than what I'm seeing.

The colors are all there but the vibrance is missing. It comes off as a cover job to what could have been stellar effects.



3MonthBeef commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

First off seriously you guys should move the reply box to the top. It's annoying to scroll all the way down just to make a comment.

Anyway, I've got my third wave amiibo preordered since that's all I care about. No poll for that though.



3MonthBeef commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. Can Finally R...:

@Dipper723 Assuming their at 7.5 million now I don't think it'll move 2 million units in 1.25 months. I think it'll be more or less the same with what SM3DW did. This being Smash I'll say around 300-400k consoles sold in that time frame to close out the year. Just a prediction.



3MonthBeef commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Without different exclusives coming to it by way of third-parties (not the usual AAA, but something different) its only worth owning for the classic first party games. But with the droughts made by such a position the console is worth only getting at a discount.

There's nothing revolutionary being done with the gamepad, and let's face it, that dream is gone. If the only tangible selling point is amiibo then they should start releasing skus without the pad and include an amiibo portal.



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

I'm finding more and more games I like are coming from the Nordic regions. Examples: Mirror's Edge, Limbo, this game and soon Inside (isn't out but looks great) to utter a few. Its like they produce games with the perfect blend of style and substance.



3MonthBeef commented on Talking Point: The amiibo Range Grows, Yet Key...:

The lack of storage on the amiibo distracts from its appeal. I mean with the read/write situation you basically could have the game itself save special character data and through a NNID setup have it ported to any game you wanted. The amiibo from that standpoint is an unnecessary messenger of data.

As far as releasing every character in Smash I can understand that. I mean it'd be pretty annoying to see only say 10 FP characters fighting. Releasing them all guarantees some variety and experimentation amongst gasp gamers (not armchair gaming critics). Not to mention if they had released a handfull you'd surely hear the argument (whining), "Why didn't they release them all? They should have given us the choice. Damn you Nintendo!"



3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

I would have figured these could hold more data for multiple games. It just adds an extra annoying step on the process. I guess it also depends if the is a cross title like smash or a different title altogether. We need another year to know for sure I guess, as always.



3MonthBeef commented on Nintendo Aiming To Create A Stronger Bond With...:

Sounds like the perfect sneak attack to get people into QoL. Oh , and yes Mr. Iwata it is embarrassing, very much so. But smart on Nintendo as Microsoft has their own avatars and as far as I know only existence within their universe. At least Nintendo is branching out to other platforms, supposedly with a wider scope in mind for them as I stated already.



3MonthBeef commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

@chilenozo "I would love to have Call of Duty on our platform. I would love to have any of the big blockbuster, multi-platform titles. But I have to say, more specifically, I want games that provide a differentiated consumer experience."

What's the problem with his comment? He's not at all implying Nintendo exclusives are all that they need.



3MonthBeef commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

If 3rd parties didn't release an iteration of their flagship titles EVERY SINGLE year I wouldn't feel Reggie had much of a point. But he does. I mean why even buy CoD:AW when you know the sequel will be out next year to hopefully improve on the last? Then of course its the same vicious cycle of why buy the next in line when... you get the idea.



3MonthBeef commented on Preview: Using amiibo with Super Smash Bros. f...:

@Superstick I reckon Pac-Man, Sonic and Megaman since those are third-party characters. I'd also throw Captain Falcon and Little Mac in the mix because let's face it F-Zero is gone and Nintendo isn't going to squander their limited resources on Punch-Out.

Bear in mind, there's nothing saying Nintendo won't reissue certain characters if the need for them arises.



3MonthBeef commented on Bayonetta 2 Falls From UK Charts After One Week:

That top 40 list is stupid anyways. Its comprised of mostly the same 5-10 games that are cross-gen. Bayonetta already wasn't a household ip like FIFA or Mario in the title so what do you expect? Joke of a list of no importance.



3MonthBeef commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

At this stage in the game consumers will buy whatever console they feel delivers the best offerings for them. Its all about the hype of the games coming out this holiday season and what news leads into it to get gamers excited for the new year.

For me, Wii U is looking better and better, PS4 (third-parties especially) have been dropping the ball to say the least and Xbone, for me, the brand is irrevocable.
