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 Review: Falling Skies: The Game (Wii U eShop):

oh my god, that draw distance is terrible. The game isn't even good looking at all either, you have to wonder how the draw distance is that bad. I'm going to assume the developer is incompetent.

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?).

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)..

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. :P

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.

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.

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?

9th_Sage commented on Nintendo Download: 19th June (North America):

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").
