9th_Sage commented on Areal Campaign Suspended By Kickstarter:

They still blame everyone BUT themselves...which of course, is where the blame should truly be laid. It's weird how they say things like 'our competitors were trying to stop us'...what on Earth are they talking about? I can't even think of anything that would make that make some kind of sense.

By the way, don't expect to see on that Facebook page any negative comments, not for long anyway. They've already deleted a few. I guess they can't handle the criticism of people saying 'Oh dear, I'm kind of scared to donate anything to you guys at this point.'

"Another case of NL not doing their search"
So you're faulting them for not completing the game five times before reviewing it? Maybe it gets harder or something on each 'loop', but you don't need to do that to review the game...it's not like it plays very differently.

9th_Sage commented on Buck Rogers SNES Prototype Materializes:

@TheRealThanos Oh no, it's not the music so much as the sound effects (though the music does have a certain sound that brings to mind Turrican). On watching the Jim Power video (didn't watch enough of that earlier it seems)...apparently those other effects in the Buck Rogers that sound like they are literally the SFX from Turrican were changed. Maybe they were used as place holders?

A part of me kind of wants 2048, but given the knowledge that it's a clone of Threes (available on Android/iPhone) I don't know that I can support it. They kind of stole Threes' thunder on Android/iPhone....Threes isn't expensive, but it's hard to beat free, which 2048 is (ad supported). In fact,it was a really crummy thing to do to them.

Hm, yes. Only big thing I can think of (unless they can speed loading further, but I doubt it...and honestly, it's in a decent spot right now anyway) are a better account system, like others have said. Cross-Buy/cloud saves would be great too. Also, folders.

9th_Sage commented on E3 2014: Palutena to Descend From the Heavens ...:

Also, in the teaser, I'm pretty sure I heard Viridi in there. I feel like it's unlikely they'd have gotten her voice actress in there for just one line. I hope she's an assist at least. Wouldn't it be cool if she were an alt or Palutena though?

9th_Sage commented on Wii U System Update 5.0.0 Now Live, Adds Quick...:

@tebunker Haven't had any problems with my USB drive, so no. I made sure to get an enclosure that isn't USB bus powered though (I don't know if that's the problem you're having, like you're saying it is...that doesn't make much sense. AFAIK, the USB bus gives whatever power it gives, would there even be a way of throttling it?).

9th_Sage commented on Review: Fit Music for Wii U (Wii U):

I don't know why, but I feel the need to point out that WiiFit U does have dance stuff in it (maybe you just meant that it didn't have licensed songs of any sort). Glad I didn't buy this...I did sort of look at it and say "hm, well, not a bad concept, maybe GF would like it." I'll be on the lookout for this company in the future, at least I know now not to buy anything they put out (like someone said in the review of that kid's game's comment section, they're "0 for 2").

9th_Sage commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:

The thing about multiplayer on these titles is that from what I've heard, the link cable is notoriously difficult to emulate (I'm sure some people are like 'DO IT ONLINE' but the strict timings it requires makes this a bad idea). Seems like a lot of work for little benefit (for me at least, I don't think I've played a GBA game in multiplayer even once). It doesn't really have to do with emulating multiple GBAs...I'm sure WiiU could handle a few GBAs at once, it's the extreme flakiness of the link cable that's the actual problem.

I seriously doubt it would ever work on 3DS, because the wireless would add all sorts of latency that would again make it very difficult to do. It seems like a lot of work for very little benefit, and I can't say I blame them for not doing it.

9th_Sage commented on The Videogame History Museum's GDC Nintendo Ex...:

I'm glad they included the Virtual Boy. It may not have been a success (or even that great really) but it's an interesting part of their history when you realize that it was in some ways the predecessor of the 3DS.

9th_Sage commented on Review: Disney Frozen: Olaf's Quest (3DS):

Haha, calling the snowman 'allegedly humorous'. I haven't see the movie, but ever promotional thing I've seen of it that has this character in it, he just seems unfunny. Maybe one day we'll get past the need to put funny mascot/talking animal characters in every kids movie.

9th_Sage commented on 3DS Region-Free Hack is Hacked by Hackers:

@PrincessEevee9 I never said piracy wasn't illegal, I also never said I was 'in favor' of piracy or some such thing (in fact the hardcore pirates out there piss me off). I get it though, you just wanted to complain, this is the Internet after all. I know it's the thing on Internet forums/news sites to respond to things without actually reading them fully, but please read a little more closely next time. :)

9th_Sage commented on 3DS Region-Free Hack is Hacked by Hackers:

"The crux is that the region-free 3DS workaround appears to have been blocked off, and on top of that those behind the launcher appear to have implemented code to brick systems that have already been hacked in the first place."
Wow, they're freaking jerks. At least the region free hack has a legitimate use, their card pretty much is only good for piracy (let's be honest here...since it's one game at a time and no homebrew or anything that can be used, that's the size of it).
