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.



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

Super accurate like when Ganondorf doesn't have his sword or his own unique moveset!

Nice excuses, just say you don't like the character and that is why he isn't in the game. I really hope smash 5 gets a new director, I'm tired of Sakurai's piss poor excuses.



AugustusOxy commented on Masahiro Sakurai Explains Why Mewtwo Isn't Pai...:

Its coming. They don't announce this kind of crap right after the game is released or right around its release because then it causes people to stall and wait before buying it.

I can guarantee you by this time next year we'll have some DLC for the game.



AugustusOxy commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

Yeah I mean the vita has like...

hold up... it has... um... that one game... I think... uh and there is that... one game... that uhhh... wait.

There aint squat on the vita. Lol.

"You're entitled to your educated opinion; without it, its just fart bubbles and hot hair."



AugustusOxy commented on 3DS Homebrew Exploit Set to be Launched on 22n...:

There is nothing wrong with any of this and more consoles should allow for this kind of creativity. If they'd give us options to do this on our own, open sourcing their code a bit better while still keeping security tight enough that we can't blatantly rob from them, I'm sure people would appreciate it.

To be completely honest though, thieves are going to be thieves regardless, blaming a tool for the missdeeds of others is like blaming a pizza for why you're fat.



AugustusOxy commented on Upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Pa...:

The only balancing issue I've seen is with the counter attacks and the character Ike. Ike was awful cheap in brawl and its the same here, fix it. Don't go screwing up Olimar or anyone else who was fine before, it at least took skill to use olimar in brawl, it doesn't take skill to spam the down B and basic B attack for Ike.



AugustusOxy commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

Considering how much Nintendo, Microsoft, and Sony are getting their asses handed to them by crappy tablet and cellphone gaming-- its time to consider all options for improving sales.

Region locking is not only antiquated; its illogical. Sure, nintendo has releases of Japanese games like animal crossing that come out nearly half a year before the english release and they fear that fans might import out lack of patience; but with games like that, I'm almost certain most fans would rather wait for the english versoin.

I believe a lot of the reason they still region lock is because big business over here doesn't like the idea of losing sales to imports. But if the two biggest evils in the electronics world can open themselves to region free bliss, then Nintendo should too.



AugustusOxy commented on Sounds Like Super Smash Bros. Director Masahir...:

Cry me a river.

I have a friend who is a nurse who works the same kind of hours and has actual lives on her hands.

I would have gotten a different director to do smash bros anyway, if I were nintendo. Sakurai's roster choices are awful and bringing the series down.



AugustusOxy commented on Tournament Players Pass Judgement On 8-Player ...:

As someone who eats tourney players for breakfast in smash bros, I honestly don't care what those try-hards think about anything. They strip Smash bros down to its core mechanics and utterly castrate the game of all of its insanity in favor of dumbing it down to the same levels as street fighter.



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.
