Of course a game maker is going to like steam-- its a cheap platform to release a bunch of garbage games. Sure, steam has thousands of games, but 98 percent of them are crap.

On top of that, download only services are a flippin' scam. You never own the game, so no matter what a 'deal' you get it for, you're still just renting it.



AugustusOxy commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

Mario 64's remake on the original 3DS is everything a remade game should be, it brought all that made the original great plus fixed a good deal of its problems while adding a buttload of new things to it.

IF only all remakes were this good.



AugustusOxy commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

There should never be tv shows produced for video games at all. Its a step down, when that god awful final fantasy film came out all I could think is "Oh great, its final fantasy where you have absolutely no control over what is going on and no sense of accomplishment when its over... they stripped it of its redeeming qualities. Sweet."



AugustusOxy commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

If we continue to let injustices like this exist, soon you'll have to share your profits if you're a home builder with the material providers long after the initial sales has closed.

This is unconstitutional, this is criminal, and it should be abolished. In the end, its just going to hurt Nintendo more than help them. Stop bending the rules corporations, it will eventually bite you in the ass.



AugustusOxy commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

Fun fact; there was no real court hearing about this entire situation. What happened was nintendo got their lawyers together and got pissy with youtube, the whole 'you have to give us money for using footage from our games' argument is not only unconstitutional, its criminal.

It'd be like me being a paint maker, you buy the paint, paint your house, then sell it-- then me coming along down the line and saying I deserve a profit from your house sales because you used my paint to sell it.

What someone does with a nintendo product after the sale is their business. So many youtubers playing games actually help the games sales, nintendo should look at it as free advertising.

I find this particularly annoying because I review toys and what happens when I review a nintendo toy on youtube, are they going to want profits from my reviews? Even though I'm giving their toy free advertisement and possible endorsement. This is just wrong.



AugustusOxy commented on ​Sakurai Considered Having All Fighters Unlo...:

No. Its bad enough Mario Kart 8 made it painfully easy to unlock everything, games need to be a challenge. If you're not good at them, GET GOOD at them or play something else. I'm all for accessibility, but there is almost no reason to play mario kart 8 offline after you've unlocked all the characters.

I miss the days of having to get ridiculously good scores to unlock that one final track/character. Those days are over.



AugustusOxy commented on Satoru Iwata States That Around 5.7 Million am...:

Time to let that pipedream go.

You're never going to be able to buy official licensed nintendo games on a smartphone.

Maybe nintendo will make their own phone someday, but that is highly unlikely.

Just get over it, complaining about no nintendo games on your phone is like complaining that your car can't fly. Sure it'd be great, but its not ever going to happen.



AugustusOxy commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

Yeah, the industry has changed to become politically correct bullpoooooooooooop.

I'm native American and people of my race have put up with bullpooooooooooop representations of our people in media since popculture came into existence.

But most of us get over it because we know the difference between racialism and racism. Racialism is the act to pointing out mostly uniquely racial qualities. I.E. African American's excelling at sports, asians being smart, ect ect. Racism is the act of fearing or out right hating another person for the sole purpose of their race.

For example, you walk up to a arabic person and tell them they're a terrorist pig and you're going to kill them. That is racism, not showing a black man eating fried chicken, not showing a native american with a bow an arrow-- that is racialism. If there is no blatant hate or fear behind it, its racial, not racist. We need to learn this as a society.

Also, how the hell else are you going to tell what country a gameboy game is displaying with its limited technological capabilities? You'll have to show a stereotype to emphasize the global knowledge of that country. Africa has aboriginal people and elephants, why is anyone offended by this?

If they showed the prosperous parts of africa, say the buildings and cities, people wouldn't have recognized the locale.



AugustusOxy commented on Weirdness: These Push Guards for the New Ninte...:

Games popping out of handhelds has been a problem ever since their inception.

I remember the atari handheld that had some problems with games not staying locked in.

My PSP liked to randomly launch games out for no reason.

My 3DS XL actually has the opposite problem, its hard as hell to get the games out.



AugustusOxy commented on Super Smash Bros. Tournament Organiser Steps D...:

Yeah, its not 'that' kind of stalking. He didn't want to screw me, at least I don't think he did. He wanted to ruin my life, wanted to beat me up, hurt my pets, that sort of thing. He succeeded in hurting some people really close to me. Its not a very fun subject to discuss, but I bring it up because people who have experienced real harassment/rape/or anything like it see this sort of nonsense as being just THAT.

Nonsense. This cheapens the value of the term sexual harassment and worst of all; brings all sorts of unwanted attention to the victim, which is more damaging than the actual act of harassment in many cases.

But then again no one is going to think like that. Everyone's got their torches and pitch forks and they're gonna chase the monster up into the windmill and burn him alive. I'm probably not going to comment any more on this article mainly because a I can tell the IQ gap between me and my nitpickers is too wide and it negates any chance of a redeemable 'discussion'.



AugustusOxy commented on Super Smash Bros. Tournament Organiser Steps D...:

Harassment is a touchy subject, I get it.

But as far as I'm concerned, there are laws in place for said problem. I've had a stalker for the better part of 3 years and I just recently got said stalker thrown in jail and he is facing prison time.

I went to the police about it, I didn't gang up on social media and try to ruin my stalker's life. The law exists for a reason-- this poopypoop is just plain revenge nonsense.

Also everything I'm reading that this guy said is fricken child's play to compared to some of the nonsense I see women put up with at these kind of get-togethers. But then again, that is a whole other subject.

Regardless though-- I'm a libetarian in the respect that I believe free speech should be just that. As long as no one is being threatened, people should be allowed to say whatever stupid poopypoopypoopypoop they want.

But continue on with this social justice non-sense, life ruining BS and we'll continue to destroy our own freedoms for a false sense of security. While people are complaining about this guy online and ruining his life, real pedophiles are assaulting children as we speak.

There is a little food for thought for ya.



AugustusOxy commented on Super Smash Bros. Tournament Organiser Steps D...:

Oh my god, someone save the children. I bet the girl went right home and killed herself afterwards didn't she? I've seen a lot worse go on at tourneys before.
If being hit on by a creepy older dude is the worst thing that happened to this girl up until this point in her life-- well guess what; she's had a pretty good life.



AugustusOxy commented on Super Smash Bros. Tournament Organiser Steps D...:

Kay is a problem. Tournaments are filled with smack talk, bad talk, and all sorts of other unpleasant things. Don't like it, don't go to them.

People wont always say things you like and they will say mean things to you, screwing with someone's job because of it is just a low and powerless way of getting revenge and revenge is for the weak.

Grow a pair. Grow up. This is life, stop ruining people's lives because they hurt your ego.



AugustusOxy commented on New Exploit Makes The 3DS Region Free Without ...:

This is pretty awesome-- if its real.

I hope nintendo doesn't fix it. There are quite a few japanese games I'll be buying if this exploit never gets fixed.

Basically what I'm sayin' is someone will be making money if they don't fix this exploit. Some company that made the game will be selling another copy. I fail to see anything wrong with this.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Invests in New Lobbying Firm to Tackl...:

Big business has no right to attempt to control the government and worst of all-- this is just alienation.

Focus your funds on making better products for your paying audience instead of focusing your funds on punishing your non-paying audience.



AugustusOxy commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

YEAH! And while we are at it, lets get a nintendo smart car, and nintendo smart TV... SCREW IT! NINTENDO HOUSE WITH NINTENDO COFFEE MAKER!
The mentality behind the whole 'cellphones are kicking our ass" that game makers have isn't an issue of losing to cellphones, its an issue of wanting that money.

It'd be like bicycle makers completely altering their business practice, changing bikes entirely to compete with skateboards.

Lets just keep both entities separate.



AugustusOxy commented on Sonic Boom is Doing Pretty Well!:

If this kind of blatant overtly annoying 'in your face' g4 techTV style 'LAWL OUR OPINION IS CUTE, WE'LL PUT IT INTO ALL OUR TITLES AND ARTICLES' continues-- I'll stop following this news site.

report the news, tell me what games are coming out and review them intelligently. No one is impressed you can make snarky jokes.



AugustusOxy commented on Masahiro Sakurai Admits That Super Smash Bros....:

Please god let it be true.

He runs smash brothers with an iron fist and his decisions of what characters make it in the game is awful.

Smash Bros needs to be run like a democracy, not a dictatorship. Get someone in there with some more imagination and we can start filling the roster with more worthy characters than wii-fit trainer, ten million fire emblem sword users, and butt-loads of clones.



AugustusOxy commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

The hatred for this game shows a serious level of biased going into it before its played.

The level design was great, the gameplay was fun, and the characters were far better than they have been in years.

But considering this is a review coming from a site that is literally foaming at the mouth with anticipation for a game as awful as captain toad, I can understand how this review happened.



AugustusOxy commented on Sakurai Explains Why Ridley Is Not A Playable ...:

I really hope Smash Bros gets a new director. I'm sick of hearing Sakurai complain about how hard it is to make the game, don't like it, quit. I think the franchise needs a fresh start.

The new game has a huge roster, but most of it is made up of pretty boy sword users and female characters thrown in to appease a niche market of waifu-culture neckbeards and femnazis.

The reality is that smash brothers needs to go back to its roots of as little humanoid characters as possible, its the thing that makes smash better than all the other fighting games out there. If I wanted to play "pretty people beat each other up" I'd get dead or alive.
