If they include Amiibo data with it like they say they are, surely they're going to be sued into oblivion. I do see the value in backing up your figures (well, I would if more games needed to store data on 'em anyway). I suppose that most of the people who would buy this probably wouldn't have bought the Amiibo anyway though...I mean, don't most people want them for the figure itself too?



9th_Sage commented on Splatoon Data Mining Brings More Weapons, a Ne...:

The really interesting thing, I think, is that apparently all it takes to turn your character into an Octoling is a small change in the save file. One value is Boy Inkling, another is Girl Inkling, then another is the female Octoling. Makes me think they will put that in eventually, or that they were at one point GOING to put that in.



9th_Sage commented on Feature: The Full Story Behind Star Fox 2, Nin...:

That's really interesting....the 'mostly complete' version that eventually did get leaked is pretty awesome (my compliments to everyone involved, it's understandable why it never came out, but boy it's a shame because the game is pretty excellent). Cool that there really DOES exist a fully completed version.... I doubt it would happen, but wouldn't that be a great way to drum up excitement for Starfox on the WiiU?



9th_Sage commented on Interview: AVGN Adventures Developer on Influe...:

Oh wow, I didn't realize the developer of AVGN Adventures was in fact the person who made that MANOS side scroller. It's pretty good! Now that I realize this, I can kind of see some similarities in both the games.



9th_Sage commented on Rumour: Rayman Could be Planned as DLC in Supe...:

I think I want to point out that very soon after the video/images, I saw one of BARBIE on the character select screen of Smash that also looked convincing (very much like that still of Rayman on the select screen actually). People really need to take this with a grain of salt instead of looking for justifications for it to be real ('oh, he can't be selected because 'x', ''there was a trophy!') because clearly it can be faked.



9th_Sage commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

I wouldn't expect it until at least noon eastern, folks. That seems to be when they update the eShop. I know they said it was now available, but usually it takes until then for them to update regardless of what they say.



9th_Sage commented on Review: Maze (Wii U eShop):

Maybe I'll check it out, out of curiosity once it's inevitably discounted to $0.49 like The Letter was. Glad to hear the dev is listening to some of the criticism, but I'm not surprised it's awful.

Only bad thing though, is that it doesn't sound like it has the only redeeming thing The Letter a certain kind of person (like me) The Letter's attempts at a story and trying to be scary were actually somewhat funny due to how completely terrible they were.



9th_Sage commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

No...this is more about their inexperience than Nintendo's policies. I hope I don't come off as an ass saying this, but even I know they (and all console makers) have a certification process. They also probably shouldn't have expected Nintendo to bankroll them when they are a complete unknown without anything to really show anyone yet.

I wish them well, but the lack of thought that seems to have been put into things on their part doesn't bode well for the project.



9th_Sage commented on SDK Paint:

Hard to review something like this when no games that are compatible with it are released. I feel like this company has their priorities skewed (maybe get some games out first eh?).



9th_Sage commented on UCraft Developer Promises Extensive Features a...:

So...that's 'alpha' footage, yet they intend to get it out this year? Also, god, yes...that terribly high FOV really didn't help the game look...well, not ugly. I mean, I don't judge a game on graphics first, but maaaan. At least if the FOV was lower it wouldn't physically hurt my eyes.



9th_Sage commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

Don't have time to watch the video right now, but here's my general opinion...

For me, flash carts are a convenience thing. In my case I'm talking about the one I have for Nintendo DS stuff (usable on my 3DS). For years I've been dumping out copies of my DS games and putting the boxes up in my closet...I've got a really tiny apartment here. I've also been doing the same thing with my GBA games (and since this flashcart also has a built-in CPU that can be used for say emulating the GBA, it means I can use them here too which is impossible without such a device on a 3DS).

That said, if a GBA game I like such as say Mother 3 (just as an example) were to appear on the virtual console, I'd buy it there to support the things I enjoy despite being able to play it also on the flashcart or the original cartridge (though in Japanese in that case).

I feel much the same way with other forms of emulation (and other console specific flash carts). I'm glad to support whoever it is that wants to re-release these older games, I use other (unsanctioned, shall I say) emulation for things that are unlikely to ever come out because of weird rights issues, or the original developer just not caring any more (like the SNES RPG Robotrek...good game, I think Squeenix perhaps owns it now, but they're never going to do anything with it on VC since it's not Final Fantasy)..



9th_Sage commented on Night Trap ReVamped Developer May Flip-Flop on...:

Pfft, haha. This keeps getting funnier to me. I'm going to assume this was predicated on them feeling like they might not hit their goal, so they decided to toady it up to the WiiU crowd, since they love to fund stuff.



9th_Sage commented on The Letter Version 1.1 Update Has a New Trailer:

OK, I think for $0.50 or so, I'm going to buy this. Not because of this coming update, not because I think it'll be good, but because this game seems like such a trainwreck that I have to see what it's about.



9th_Sage commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Haha, yeah, I'm sure Night Trap HD will be a system seller. I mean...I give them credit for the dedication they have to bringing this back, but who in their right mind wants an FMV game in this day and age? I never want to see one of those again as long as I live.
