300 characters or less? George R. R. Martin didn't settle for that stuff, and neither will I! Consequently, the rest of this section will consist of the words "THE HEROES THE HEROES THE HEROES AND VILLAINS" spammed continuously until the cap is reached. Wait, I ran out of space already? CURSE YOU...

I'm still pulling for Nintendo to make Link's gender customizable in the upcoming title and titles to follow. Not because of any political or social ideology or whatever, it just seems to me that if Nintendo truly want Link to be the "link to the player," the choice should be available for anyone who wishes.

And aside from a few games, Link's gender is pretty much immaterial anyways.



AK-1138 commented on Interplay Is Remastering Cult SNES Brawler Cla...:

Heh, everyone always disses ClayFighter whenever it's mentioned in any size, shape or form, often by people who haven't even played any of the games. Oh well. The original game, while a pretty fresh memory from my childhood, is pretty floaty and dull. Dunno if I'll even bother, even with my nostalgia.

The N64 version (not the butchered Blockbuster rental version), however, is still pretty slick and action-packed to this day, with an awesome combo system that was pretty much the last hurrah for that kind of combo gameplay. I'd pick up a remastered version of that in a snap. Let's hope that it'll appear somewhere down the road.

Also hope Interplay (or, Interclay?) have got some plans to re-release the platformer Claymates for the SNES, because that was a pretty sweet and original platformr that nobody ever seems to talk about these days.

Just like Nintendo, though they may not be as guaranteed to hit it out of the park as some twenty-odd years ago, they've always maintained that spirit of fun and experimentation that makes games like Dream Land 2 as fresh and exciting as games of today.

Okay, so here's my theory: the cartoon and the CD-i games were intentionally made as warts on the proverbial posterior of the Zelda franchise so it would get people like me thinking that "Hey, it couldn't be any worse than that horrible cartoon and the cancerous CD-i games, right?"

...And, dagnabbit, it worked. DAGNABBIT, I TELLS YA!



AK-1138 commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

But yes, to continue on from my previous post, this is unfortunately where Nintendo have to lower themselves to dealing with so-called "content creators" for the sake of avoiding negative impaction to business. I don't have to like it, but that's the way it goes when public influence is handed to the entitled. Game Theory was right on the money with the "word of loudmouth" theorem.

It may be akin to supporting criminal behaviour, but in the long run it's just not worth the potential damage it could cause to your brand name. It's sure a complex world we live in.



AK-1138 commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

So, the internet's entitlement epidemic has gotten a spokesperson. It had to happen, I guess. If something you make is derivative of someone else's intellectual property, you should count yourself lucky to earn even dollar one. The IP owner has every right to cut in on any profit thereof.

Aside from being probably the most punchable face on the planet, Mr. Pie is obviously doing this just to cause a stir since (thankfully) he's stayed far away from Nintendo long before this ever happened. I guess having to recalculate his budget so he can still afford those charitable donations of his that are totally irrefutable proof that he is a saint among men, is a bit of a downer.

@whodatninja That's not even funny. Anyone who hates something and then makes it their mission to surround themselves with that thing obviously has a fair few mental disorders. It doesn't make sense to anybody.

Use your brain next time you try to be an insufferable internet snark for no reason at all.



AK-1138 commented on Retrospective: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish...:

Eh, it's a solid 2D installment with some great new ideas that were never picked up again. The story is completely okay, and with a little more development it might've been more than just another sword and plot coupon hallway deal. Vaati is pretty much one of the dullest villains of all time.



AK-1138 commented on Review: Mario Kart Super Circuit (Wii U eShop ...:

Never liked Super Circuit. People say they get physically ill from Super Mario Kart, well it ain't got nothing on Super Circuit, which shoves ugly color palettes into the mix as well. Tracks are forgettable, the music's generic, and it fails to innovate much at all. Controls are even more sluggish and awkward than MK64.

It just plain ain't my bag.
