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 Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:

The lack of agumon on this list is disturbing. Digimon's rivalry with pokemon was as strong as Sonic's with Marios in their hayday. It can't be ignored. Also it'd be a lot more unique than pacman or more dudes with swords.



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.

AugustusOxy commented on Latest Mana Game Rises To The Challenge:

Legend of Mana is the end all tell all mana game, despite its ignorant nostalgia driven reviews of its release. Its probably one of the best games ever made, end of story.

The need to be like the "Snes classic" is what ruined all the Mana sequels after Legend of Mana. They should abandon the Zelda like mechanics and return to the side-scrolling ones.



AugustusOxy commented on Video: Experience The Acute Embarrassment Of O...:

OH WAH!!!! I bought an amazing action game that had to put big boobs in it so it'd sell in today's horrible market.

Game is amazing, ignore the boobs, grow up children-- its a fun game.

Regardless, I got over this kind of embarrassment when I became an adult. It never bothered me to buy things like this.



AugustusOxy commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

Hah. People don't want new consoles. I think Sony and Microsoft should have waited a good, two or three years before releasing their new crap. I think nintendo counted on them doing it-- thus why they released the wii-u so early. Now the wii-u is getting dreamcasted, a term I use when people refuse to buy an 'inferior console' that is on the market before even knowing what the next console is going to be like. The Playstation 2 did just that to the dreamcast.

Either way-- its funny to see these minuscule figures for console sales. I have a feeling gaming as a hobby is going to go back to its glory days of inventiveness, less emphasis on the mainstream and more emphasis on staying power.



AugustusOxy commented on Kamen Rider: Battride War II Steers Its Way to...:

God I wish this would come over here and I wish the Wii-u was region free, I'm annoyed that I'd have to get it for the PS3 to play it.

BUT! This proves my point, that Japan is going to support the Wii-u with these interesting third party titles. I can't wait for all the developers to lose millions on their PS4 and Xboxone games over here and start flocking to the Wii-u because its cheaper to make for.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Download: 13th February (Europe):

Am I the only one annoyed that Inazuma Eleven keeps getting localized but not LBX?

That poll that was done for Level 5 games not too long ago was annoying as hell, Prof Layton shouldn't have even been on the list, it would have came over here regardless. Totally gave LBX a shoddy chance.



AugustusOxy commented on We Didn't Know It, But Sonic Boom Was First Sh...:

Not digging the trailer for the cartoon, but the gameplay looks okay. My biggest problem with Sonic Lost World was how effin slow it was, I'm hoping this isn't slow.

Lobster boys out there that want slower sonic games can just go lay mario or something.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo of America Discounts Refurbished Wii ...:

Should have launched at 200 dollars flat-- that would have really appealed to the cheaper parents out there. That'd make it much cheaper than the other two consoles out there.

But I honestly think the moment they announce a LOZ game for the Wii-u will be its rebirth. I'm not a LOZ fan, but lets be honest, it sure moves product.



AugustusOxy commented on The Nikkei Reports Potential Nintendo Smartpho...:

I'm fine with this concept as long as its simple, phone centric concepts. I really don't wanna hear about full games coming to phones. I hate that-- because in my opinion the whole smartphone iphone fad is like anything else in gaming, a temporary fad. It comes in, dominates the market, then dries up in about six-seven years. Same happened to guitar hero, motion controls, and such.



AugustusOxy commented on Kickstarter Research Highlights Low Delivery R...:

I haven't seen a single game on kickstarter I'd want to support, mainly because of ambiguity. A sweet talking developer pops onto a screen and makes promises hes never going to fulfill. Its like paying Molynuex to screw us again with fable before the game even comes out.

Yes, I understand the industry needs Kickstarters to get unique and interesting games funded. Too bad every game I've seen on kickstarter that got funded has been knockoff games or sequels that should just happen anyway.

Now if Kojima popped up on there and said "I need money for ZOE3" well then I'd start throwing money at him.

Until then, I'll stay conservative with my cash thank you.


Even with the games that are still in development, its proving a point. Most of these games had a projected date, a lot of them required -further funding- and still have no clear release date...This displeases the funders... quite a bit.



AugustusOxy commented on Early Mighty No. 9 Screenshots Blast Into View:

Not super excited for this for a lot of reasons. This just proves the horrible state the industry is in-- where big names wont even use their IPs out of fear of losing a nickel, so their creators have to exploit their fans for funding to create a ripoff of their own products.



AugustusOxy commented on Sakurai Reiterates That There'll Be No Subspac...:

Anyone who believes his marketing hogwash is a sheep.

This is just developer word vomit they throw out to justify why they are cutting something from the game. He can divert the blame to people who upload videos on the internet and away from him, typical PR bs.



AugustusOxy commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

This doesn't worry me-- I don't expect nintendo to depend on high label third party support.

Where the Wii-u will shine is in the same area in which the wii shined, in games that can't be made on other consoles because of its unique control scheme.

Plus Japanese developers will actually be able to AFFORD to develope for the 'under powered console' because its far cheaper to do so.

I don't expect a Nintendo console to operate like a sony console, it wouldn't be nintendo then. I'm sorry if that is what others want, but it just wont happen.

Besides, they are still dominating in the handheld market and more than likely always will.



AugustusOxy commented on Feature: Nintendo Games We'd Love to See in 2014:

I'm all for a Wii-u Animal Crossing, as long as it isn't as bad as City Folk.

Not that City Folk was terrible, its just, compare the content between the first Animal Crossing into Wild World, it was astounding how much they added to Wild World.

Then go from City Folk to New Leaf, the bar was raised again. I don't want another shallow game like City Folk, which felt like a port of wild world with better graphics. I want a full blown new game with a lot of NEW interesting features added.
