They'll force some other game into early release just to appease the 'blockbuster need'. Which is annoying, considering the zelda favortism.

I think it is safe to say that they'll port Pokken fighter to consoles by the end of this year.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Boss Satoru Iwata Warns Not To Hold Y...:

I'm going to play everyone's favorite badguy again and say it.

Animes/cartoons/movies/tv shows based on video games are a STEP DOWN. It's like relinquishing power from the player and putting it in the hands of the writers.

Not that it can't be good, it just usually isn't.



AugustusOxy commented on Sega Producer Explains Exactly What Went Wron...:

The game isn't even half as bad as people said it was. I felt like it was more playable than most triple A games that get gleaming reviews.

Yeah it had problems, but a I felt the level design was solid, the mechanics were flawed, but the game could have been amazing.

And yes, not focusing on sonic's speed is A SEROIUS PROBLEM, yet Sonic Lost world sure started that 'slow sonic' cow poopy.



AugustusOxy commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

I will go out of my way to explain that smartphone and tablet gaming is not HURTING video gaming, its just appealing to a market that would have probably NEVER BOUGHT A CONSOLE to begin with, or at least not bought it at launch.

Smart phone gaming, tablet gaming, and anything like it is a different branch all together. It would be like saying that MOVIES are going to replace books, or video games are going to replace movies.

Neither has happened.

Its not an issue of smart phones stealing customers, its an issue of smartphones making more money and nintendo/microsoft/sony all wanting a part of that action.

No, its not good business practice if you're thinking of loyal consumer bases, but it is good business practice if you're trying to make yourself rich(er).



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Teases Cross-Platform Club Nintendo S...:

People need to understand that 'cellphone gamers' aren't core gamers, they never represented the market as a whole to begin with. They represent people NINTENDO, MICROSOFT, and SONY wish would buy their products. As a business owner myself, I deal with this mentality all the time.

I sell collectibles and right next to me is a donut shop, the donut shop gets a hundred times more business than I do, because donuts have a bigger appeal to a wider variety of people. Sometimes I wish I sold donuts when I see the donut lady rolling in the cash-- but I also realize that going through the trouble of turning my collectible shop into a donut shop would alienate my loyal customers.

I really wish Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo would get over their 'need' to make trillions by appealing to a johnny come lately market platform and stay loyal to the people who have supported them for the last couple of decades.



AugustusOxy commented on Two Tribes Co-Founder Doesn't Think He Would H...:

I love this mentality of just appeal to a core audience and not everyone.

I wish Sega would take it with Sonic and stop trying to reinvent him every three weeks.

Just make sonic adventure 3 and say to hell with the nay sayers. High speed platforming isn't for everyone.



AugustusOxy commented on Kaio: King of Pirates, by Keiji Inafune's Comc...:

I'm going to clue people in on a concept here that they aren't going to understand.

You. Aint. Gonna. Make. A. Game. For. Just. 100. Grand.


Not even 300 grand.

Maybe small indy companies that have experience cutting corners can do it, but not someone like Inafune.

The whole kickstarter concept isn't about funding a project, its about getting a production company to PICK IT UP.

They figure "enough people back this, it shows that there is a serious interest and maybe some big player will buy the project if they see a lot of money thrown at it".

So they lie to you, make promises they'll never fulfill and you fall for it.

So good job being sheep.



AugustusOxy commented on New Nintendo 3DS XL Charging Cradle Goes Up fo...:

You know, the charging cradle from the original 3DS was a pretty charming, albeit nonsensical concept.

I don't mind it, and I wouldn't mind having one just for the convenience of sitting my system down on a base. But honestly, its not that hard to plug in a chord to the back of the console.



AugustusOxy commented on Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Reall...:

Is it messed up that I kind of agree with him.

A good story has a beginning, middle, and end, not a cliff hanger, not an ending that you feel warrants thirty sequels to quell a fandom's thirst. A good story is satsifying, it can leave things open for sequels, but maybe sometimes its best to rest the characters from the first story, give them a break.

I get tired of watching the poor people from resident evil getting stuck in the same damn situations over and over.



AugustusOxy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Right to Take Its Ti...:

The only problem I have with the e-shop is accessibility, to be honest I have a hard time finding certain things. Its not like sony or microsofts set up where its categorized really nicely.

But the whole 'digitalization' concept isn't a great one, and denying it is just good business practice. You never own digital games, you can't resell them, you can't pass them down to other people, its a racket. Its a rental, and that is all it'll ever be.



AugustusOxy commented on New amiibo Stock for Villager, Captain Falcon ...:

I wish America had a business practice like Japan. We believe in artificially inflating the value of things and creating 'prestige' in owning rare items, instead of playing with the idea that hey, maybe everyone deserves a shot to buy one of these bad boys.



AugustusOxy commented on 3DS System Update Shuts Off Web Browser Exploi...:

To be completely honest, if they had never spoke about it publicly, would you have even known how to exploit the system?

I look for the next generation nintendo consoles to no longer use internet browsers anymore, or memory sticks. Too many exploits.

Which is sad because some exploits aren't harmful to any form of high business.



AugustusOxy commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

Keep on top of it folks and this crap wont happen.

I own all the amiibos I wanted, with the only one I missed being little mac because I snoozed.

Eat your wheaties, wake up early, check the hell out of online sells and pay attention and you'll get what you want. This is how scalpers do it, think like a scalper and you'll get your precious figures.



AugustusOxy commented on Sonic Team Boss States That There Are No Plans...:

Sonic Adventure 3; make it.

Old engine, reunite the old team, old director, old voice cast, chao gardens.

Drop the 'lets re-invent sonic' every ten minutes.

Sonic is niche, fast paced platforming. Stop trying to make it accessible to everyone.



AugustusOxy commented on Talking Point: The Limited Edition Battle With...:

People who complain about scalpers fail at life.

You have all the same opportunities the scalpers have. Get out there and buy the damn thing before everyone else does. That is what scalpers do. They go through the trouble of finding the product before everyone else (sometimes driving as far as a hundred miles to pick it up) then sell it to you at a premium that you SHOULD pay as a service for their effort.

You have all the same abilities as them. If scalpers are such a 'big problem' just stop buying the damn things from the scalpers.



AugustusOxy commented on Masahiro Sakurai Praises the Achievements of S...:

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.
