Artie commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

To the guy earlier who posted that Club Nintendo should be an afterthought to the games you buy, I agree with you. Joining it should be an afterthought, it was for me anyways (I can't wait to play Super Mario Galaxy! What is this? A code? Cool!). However, it becomes more than an afterthought when you have been doing it for years knowing that some UNIQUE reward will be your payment for contributing to Nintendo's market research surveys. It becomes part of your life that like any other part of life is capable of letting you down.

Here's the process you get into and it's time consuming. Get game, register game with clubnintendo, fill out survey, get points, fill out 2nd survey one week later, get more points, maybe get platinum status, get something unique for helping Nintendo by filling out surveys, repeat next year.

It's not entitlement, it's genuine disappointment from dashed expectations based on multiple years of precedent. drops mike

@SonataAndante I am in this guy's boat...I own all but 2 of these and wasn't going to get them anyways. No interest. I have however been a Platinum member for 5 years running and this is the first year I have been disappointed I spent so much time filling out surveys. I won't be bothering anymore.

Artie commented on Nintendo of America Releases Snaps of Young Ce...:

@Ruffigan You have a few points there. I will give you those. The thing you erroneously posted is that I somewhere bashed the products quality. I never said anything about the quality of Yoshi's New Island. How could I? I have not played it yet, nor I am assuming have you. It's not available to us yet.

Artie commented on Nintendo of America Releases Snaps of Young Ce...:

Nintendo of America are fools. This is why I don't respect them or any other American company for that matter. What happened? I used to live in a better world where product quality stood on its own or it failed because it wasn't up to snuff. Unfortunately, the future generations of our world actually respond to this crap.

Artie commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

Am I the only one tired of seeing game droughts only to have two major titles release on the same day? In the US, Mario Golf and Kirby Triple Deluxe on May 2...and 3ds titles no less. My fiancée and I both have 3ds' and want both of these, but now have to choose because I can't drop $160 plus tax on 2 copies of 2 games on the same day. Seriously, what's that about? How is that smart?

Artie commented on Iwata And Miyamoto Both Take Pay Cuts In Respo...:

@Sockymon Would you rather see them ruin the lives of their lesser paid staff and run the company into the ground like any western executive? You respond like they are crying over it, they aren't. They are making a gesture of faith that says my choices led to these problems, I'll shoulder the burden of blame. If this were a western developer whole teams would be laid off before an executive took a paycut. They would drive the company bankrupt, lay everyone off and take what was left as a bonus, dissolve the company and move on to destroy another company in five to ten years.

Artie commented on Video: Persona Q Website Unveils Two More Char...:

Yes, let's all complain that the first Persona game to come to a Nintendo console (exclusive no less) is ugly when we should all know 2D images of 3DS games aren't an accurate representation. Nintendo-made games don't look great in 2D screens either. Let's bash a good thing.

Artie commented on Netflix Wii U App Update Goes Live:

Since the update, shows will not resume if I stop them instead starting over. When I first load it, it hangs for a minute or so. Twice now it has put me on the wrong episode from where I was watching. When I try to pause or change episode during play (which i've been having to do because of the reasons above) it hangs for 20-30 seconds before acting. And if you try to tap it again while hung, when it responds it takes all of those taps a and executes all of them in quick succession, moving through multiple menus and usually landing on and playing something else entirely.

Artie commented on 3DS System Update 7.1.0-15 is Available Now:

@Frapp Yes! This times a million! Was just ranting about this in another post. Thing is, I don't believe it will happen with current hardware. We import aficionados need to let Nintendo know that region-free should be a given in an increasingly culturally blended society. They still make money when someone imports new software.

Artie commented on Senran Kagura Burst Pre-Order Bonuses Announce...:

I am so upset by this news. As a U.S. gamer I had no choice but to d/l. Liked the game so much, I imported a Japanese copy of it's spinoff game, Shinovi Versus for my REGION-FREE playstation vita. Regions are a thing of the past as more of us are multi-cultural or at least not put off by a language barrier. Companies still make money when importers buy new games so what this practice of region-locking has taught me is that it's about control...and it makes me mad. Wouldn't it cost a company more money to produce different region hardware rather than one machine?

Artie commented on La-Mulana 2 Emerges Through a Kickstarter Camp...:

I still don't understand why enjoy up or another company hasn't brought the original to anything other than pc and wiiware. But we have a million copies of cave story on everything. La Mulana is one of the best games made since the Super Nintendo.
