AugustusOxy commented on New Nintendo 3DS LL Outsells Standard Model By...:

Good. Good. Good. Good.

They'll see the error in their ways. There shouldn't even be a standard model and a LL model, just the LL model and that should be the 'standard'. Bigger screens are always better. Even if it doesn't 'fit conveniently in your pocket'. If you put a nearly 200 dollar piece of hardware in your pocket like that, you're an idiot.

INB4 cell phones-- most intelligent people don't carry their expensive cellphones in their pockets, with their keys and change. I know I don't. It goes in a special carrier on my belt.



AugustusOxy commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

The lack of the faceplate support on the XL model drives me nuts. I have no intention on buying either of these until I can have a big screen AND swapable faceplates.

Not a huge fan of small screens of any sort. Regardless of whatever justification someone has (Doesn't fit in your pocket, pixelation, blahblah) bigger screens are universally better. If they weren't people wouldn't pay 8 dollars a pop to go see a movie in the theater.



AugustusOxy commented on Modder Shows How to Play the 3DS With a GameCu...:

Yeah... I'll just be gentle with it. People who break their circle-pads playing the game are getting waaaaay too into it. I think its safe to say-- treat the 3DS version as the 'casual fun' version and save the hardcore controller breaking for the Wii-u version.

I'd say that busting a stick on a controller is way less expensive than destroying your 3DS in the process of a hyper competitive madness.



AugustusOxy commented on Mother 4 Is On The Way, But It's Not Being Mad...:

So does that make all fanart theft? Does that make all fan fiction theft? Does that make all fan music, fan films, fan anything theft?

I'll be happy if that law gets passed later this year, fixing all the BS, weird blurred line Intellectual property crap that people like you buy into.

If they aren't profiting off of it, it is, and should be completely legal.

But as long as white knights like you exist, we'll continue to have people OWNING the birthday song and the phrase 'you're fired'. Thanks for promoting that kind of mindless loyalty.



AugustusOxy commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

You know, nintendo started out-sourcing Donkey Kong and those games were great-- maybe its time to pick a new Smash Bros director-- or at least have more creative control from other people and take away his iron-fist. I know ten thousand fans that have figured out how Ridley could play and yet he acts like its this impossible thing that is beyond his scope.

Sakurai is the ultimate troll, I can respect that, but the roster for Smash Bros 4 is probably the most underwhelming thing I can think of in recent history (and I'd say its more underwhelming than MvC3)

Skipping out on interesting characters like Midna, Dillon, RayMK, or really just about any other nintendo character in its vast roster in favor for someone as vanilla as Palutena, as boring as the Robin duo, or as un-interesting as any of the ten million pretty boy sword users.

I feel like the more straight up anime-looking pretty humanoid characters get thrown in smash, the less it feels like the whacky cartoony fighting game I loved for over a decade and a half and more like every other cut and paste fricken fighting game out there.

And after playing the demo, I can say I'm not super impressed with Megaman or the Villager either, I'm not feeling any real sense of originality from their gameplay style like say, Olimar in Brawl or Bowser in Melee-- how they brought new concepts to the game feel fresh. The new comers I've played thus far just feel like the same pair of shoes.



AugustusOxy commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

Thanks for confirming my suspicion.

Smash as devolved from a crossover fighting game into a Billboard to sell whatever possible under-performing game.

I'm not okay with this, at all.

That and the fact that a good portion of the roster now is pretty boys with swords or GIRL POWER GIRLS.

The evils of the video game world has spilled over into my favorite franchise and now I'm just disgusted.



AugustusOxy commented on Video: Watch Us Crack Some Skulls In The 3DS S...:

I'm still not quite sold on this game. The roster seems small-- way to small for the wait. I still don't like the whole "lose a character gain a character' mentality that fighting game makers have. Its disgusting. At this point, with technology, we should have the entire cast of melee and brawl with a butt load of newcomers.

I should be looking at a screen with about 75 characters, not 48.

I still wish they would have just made the Wii-u game a solid entity on its own and released it next year holiday season, with about ten-fifteen more characters and a real story mode. But I have a feeling that the amiibo thing is going to introduce new characters anyway.


Don't care. I'd rather have more DIFFERENT characters than ONE character I can alter slightly.

An no, Miis that look like people don't count as characters.



AugustusOxy commented on Sorry, Contrary to Rumours the New Nintendo 3D...:

And this is the straw that broke the camels back. No faceplates for the XL version + Micro SD card bs + stronger parental controls + region lock = I'll keep my current 3DS. Faster mii-verse and extra buttons aren't enough to make me 'upgrade'.

Nintendo needs to end this whole 'child friendly' BS that is essentially alienating their loyal, adult fans.



AugustusOxy commented on Square Enix Wants To Bring Dragon Quest VII To...:

"Thing is, we want 100 dollar bills to wipe our butts with, not fifties. Whenever we bring these games over they don't do pokemon numbers so we're all like 'screw you we wanna be rich! Not well off! Jerks!'"

That is how every publisher sounds when they deny localization.



AugustusOxy commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:


Will its screens be the same size or smaller than the current XL?

I'm not sure if I'm in a hurry to throw out all my current memory sticks and awesome special edition 3ds XLs for a couple extra buttons and a circle pad, tbh.

They'll have to sell this concept a bit better to me, I'm a monster hunter person and so far that is the only thing about it that is getting my attention.



AugustusOxy commented on Feature: Where Are The Super Nintendo 3D Class...:

I love the negative attitude people have about the way nintendo releases things.

I'm more mad at them for never giving us flipnote 3D, but I understand why they wouldn't JUMP on 3D Snes classics just yet. Why do that when you can milk the NES classics to death?



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
