AugustusOxy commented on UK Government Effectively Decriminalises Downl...:

Piracy wasn't a big issue when games were better value for their buck. In other words, twenty years ago almost every game you played had massive after stories and were filled with (at the time) massive amounts of content based on the limitations of the hardware at the time.

Compared to super mario world, there hasn't been a mario game nearly as big since (mario 64 doesn't even have the same level of replayability or after game).

So in other words, if you want people to start buying your product more, you should probably make your product worth buying. Five hour game campaigns are the reason no one forks up real cash for games anymore.



AugustusOxy commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

I remember the last time there was domestic terrorism in the states... when they interviewed the guy who killed all those people-- he said it was because he saw dirty pictures on a nintendo console and it ruined his life forever. Thanks nintendo for preventing anything like that happening again.



AugustusOxy commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

MEH MEH MEH. The number of fire emblem characters in this game... TOO DAMN HIGH!

But then again I think one fire emblem character in smash bros is too much.

Too many damn humans or human like characters.

Dillon and Midna not being playable in favor for characters like Robin and Palutena is down right blasphemy.



AugustusOxy commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

Its like trying to say "I didn't put this boring FE character in here because I already have a bunch of other boring FE characters in the game".

Basically if it isn't super humanoid and doesn't have a female version, its not making it into smash.



AugustusOxy commented on 3DS System Update 8.0.0-18 is Now Live:


Man you sure are smart.

Fun fact, DSi was region locked, as well as later versions of the dslite.

Nice try at being condescending, the reality is; I never said it would fix the problem completely-- it'd help alleviate some of the piracy and some is better than none.

But you decided to be so witty that you saw past any point i might have in some hopes that you could make a clever, funny remark.

Which failed. Nice try.



AugustusOxy commented on Video: Midna's Unique Fighting Style Brings Ex...:

This is another example of why sakurai has his head up his donkey.





Midna would have been far better in smash bros over boringtena.



AugustusOxy commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

And it has nothing to do with game quality.

Its the fact that most tablet games are free and more parents are likely to own a tablet than a 3ds.

Honestly Tablets should be outlawed because they are the biggest scam in the history of technology. Its half a laptop, does half the things, with a quarter of the power and people pay three times as much for one.



AugustusOxy commented on Guide: Forming Your Own StreetPass Meet-Up Group:

I've tried starting one up here in Michiana, but everyone is pretty paranoid. Despite the fact we'd be meeting in the middle of the most active mall in northern indiana.

Oh well, if people wanna be scared of their shadows, let them. I'm gonna be out living life.



AugustusOxy commented on New Japanese Law Bans Child Abuse Images, Yet ...:

News flash, if they're a drawing or a video game character, they aren't children.

Children are those little gross human larva running around in this thing we like to call 'the real world'.

We can have images of murder, images of rape, but images of teenagers being mildly sexualized is somehow considered horrific.

I hate the priorities of western civilization. Lets pretend teenagers aren't sexual and don't want to have sex. Lets just do that.
Watch the insults, we can have this conversation without being horrible to everyone else — TBD



AugustusOxy commented on New 3DS System Update 7-2-0-17 Now Live:

Now that we have this ridiculous parental controls, can we finally get flipnote?

Also, fun fact; if you're worried about your kids messing your 3DS up, then don't let them play it. #problemsolved



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

I think its fantastic that they are skipping the cringe worthy live presentations.

Every year those presentations by any company, be it sony, microsoft, or whatever just get worse and worse.

Plus the whole E3 privilege is toned down this way, we all get equal access to videos and such without hyper emphasis on having crappy reporters getting the news back to us.



AugustusOxy commented on Microsoft's Ken Lobb: Metroid Prime Wouldn't H...:

Which is whatever to me, because I would rather have a third person game over the first person game we got.

As good as the prime games were, I did like what the Other M did as far as concept, controls were awful, but the idea of a more action oriented, less 'slave to shooting' metroid game would be amazing.

A metroid game that handled like Beyonetta would be pretty much perfect.



AugustusOxy commented on Capcom Investing $80 Million in Two New R & D ...:

Good, then maybe they'll merge with Namco Bandai finally.

After that Nintendo can buy all three of them and have a strangle hold on most Japanese game makers, just like how Microsoft and sony have strangleholds on most American game makers.



AugustusOxy commented on Feature: How A Team Of Dedicated Fans Is Fixin...:

Not fixing it so much as gutting it to make it play like Melee.

Its an okay cause, but I think Brawl was a fine game on its own. Unlike ninety percent of common opinion spewing sheep out there, I feel like it was superior to Melee.

Melee had a lot of problems and nostalgia goggles makes it hard for fantards to see that.



AugustusOxy commented on Super Smash Bros. Direct Will Bring the Hype o...:

Gosh, I hope this game isn't coming out all that soon. The earlier the release date, the less content the game is going to have.

Its already looking bleak. They better announce a crapload of characters or something in this direct.



AugustusOxy commented on Industry Veteran Peter Molyneux Warns The Indi...:

I don't understand the love of Indy games or kickstarter games.

In all honesty, most of the ones that do well, are not the interesting, well thought out games with new ideas and concepts. Its the ripoffs of previous ideas that get funded and made. Sure its nice, but it shows a general lack of creativity.

I've yet to see too many indy games that I'd consider masterpieces.



AugustusOxy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Major Wii U Retail T...:

Demos sell games, always have. That is why they put up with having little kids destroy their controllers and handhelds at stores like walmart, because playing a game for five minutes can be enough time to say "God I need this!"

I would have never bought it any of those times if I hadn't had the opportunity to see if I liked it first.



AugustusOxy commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

If I see anymore pro feminists crap on this news site I'll probably stop following it, I'm not joking. Stop bringing crap like this up to appeal to social justice warrior women who would rather seen the censorship of art, just as long as they get to see what they want in pop culture instead of what men might want to see.

AugustusOxy commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

This crap is really childish idealistic drivel.

All humans are objectified. That is what society does. The moment you get a job you become an employee, if you make bread, you become a baker. All things to take away your individuality.

If feminists would actually play senran (which is an amazing game) they'd realize that the women in Senran happen to be some of the most fleshed out and deep female characters I've seen in a game in a long time. God forbid women have large breasts and be sexual in nature.

This isn't an issue of how women are portrayed in video games, its an issue of women not liking men drooling over stuff like this. Women are allowed to complain about this but yet they have horrible idealizations and objectifications all over day time television.

Fricken deal with it, the game was fun as hell, and I would have played it if it were about dudes with their clothes exploding off-- people act like clothes exploding off in fighting games is a new concept. Big burley menly men have been blowing their clothes off in anime and video games for years and years. To see a girl do it once is a nice breath of fresh air.
