AugustusOxy commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

Releasing weaker consoles after the fact is a death sentence in this market. But then again, at this stage, they just need to produce hardware that can fill the boots that third party companies need.

Or this guy could be a paid mole used to smear a company. Shit happens all the time, the smear campaign sony used to help destroy the dreamcast.... people seem to forget that.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

Well considering that the Wii-u isn't doing all that bad in Japan, I think the NX is going to be targeted toward western audiences. There is a good chance, like with all big name consoles produced by rival companies, it'll have a bunch of useless chicken nuggets added to it to try to justify its existence outside of a time killer.

Just as long as the damn thing has the same kind of capture technology as the PS4 and xboxone I'll be happy.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

Saying nintendo is needs to be 'tougher' with miiverse bans is like saying Hitler needed to be tougher on the jews.

I had an account banned for drawing the cover art of Monster Hunter 3 ultimate because it was marked as spoilers. The cover-art... spoilers. Yeah. It doesn't need to be any tougher.



AugustusOxy commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

"OH NO! NINTENDO'S E3 SUCKED" everyone's E3 sucks when you're expecting everything you ever wanted to be announced all on the same day.

That being stated, NIntendo, in all my years following E3 religiously (being at about 12-14 years give or take) has almost ALWAYS had bad E3s. The NIntendo Direct methodology is far better for them and I get far more excited for a Direct video than an E3 montage any day.

But still, we all know that Nintendo and Sony both usually kill it at Tokyo Game Show, which in my opinion, is almost always about ten times better than E3.



AugustusOxy commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

Virtual reality is fun, its just not marketable yet. The oculus and other virtual reality units are heavy, uncomfortable to wear, and hurt if you use them for to long. Technology gets smaller as years go on, maybe in three or four years things like the oculus will be as big as sunglasses and regular headphones, but until then, its still clunky and hard to sell.



AugustusOxy commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:


Considering the Wii-u has had Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Splatoon, Bayonetta and Monster Hunter 3, I'd hardly say it hasn't gotten good software library.

Lets consider the wii, or the gamecube, in which it took about four or five years to build such a repertoire. I think people are just entitled cry babies. They don't remember the huge software droughts of past consoles. I sure as hell remember how awful it was to own a ps3 or an xbox360 on launch year. PS3 was worse, it took 3 years to get anything worth playing.



AugustusOxy commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

Come off it Prime fans. Seriously. Metroid prime got a trilogy and a DS game, StarFox fans are seemingly never going to get a proper starfox rail shooting sequel. Don't even get me started on how screwed Mother fans are.

Am I the only person that thinks a first person shooter is not the 'ideal' area for samus to inhabit.



AugustusOxy commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

There is plenty of downside to it, development time being put into a character that gets way to much attention.

Don't come in here all high and mighty-- Ryu doesn't belong in Smash Bros. At least Konami pretended to support nintendo in the gamecube era, Capcom has all but disconnected itself. There is absolutely NO point in having Ryu in Smash Bros. If this is real, I'm going to be sick.



AugustusOxy commented on Exciting Hints of amiibo Restocks Can Be Found...:

The 'poor' amiibo stock is a form of hype building advertisement. Everyone whines and complains about there being no amiibo figures, nintendo's name gets splattered all over gaming media, and it generates a buttload of buzz. It is a calculated and deliberate move.



AugustusOxy commented on Cool It, Conspiracy Theorists - Sakurai Didn't...:

Yeah, but who gets included in the game is based on his favortism. A franchise that has 3 games shouldn't have four characters in Smash Bros. Palutena and Dark Pit's slot could have gone to some more deserving, unrepresented nintendo franchises.



AugustusOxy commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Promises 3DS E3 Reveals While...:

You know what, I never knew I wanted a game about little plants that kill big bug monsters... and well yeah, the rest was history. The people butt-clinging to nintendo and begging for another zelda game every five weeks need to cool down.



AugustusOxy commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

Easy to say when Disney Infinity is the worst selling of the 3 big toys to life campaigns.

I think it is more irresponsible to make a bunch of plastic and hardware that almost no one uses. There are always Disney Infinity figures at the local retailers, in troves, in masses, they had hundreds of Hiro figures at our local walmart. Over production is worse than under production.



AugustusOxy commented on Splatoon Producer Interview Sparks E3 Animal C...:

There will be a animal crossing for the wii-u. Considering that Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing pretty much exploded 3DS sales... yeah.

But, I have a feeling it'll be a rushed mess like City Folk was. I find it amazing how huge of strides AC games make when they jump back to handhelds, Wild World was a massive improvement over the first AC, but City Folk was only a small improvement over Wild World (If any improvement at all, in my humble opinion) while New Leaf was a gigantic jump from City Folk. I don't expect another giant jump in content.



AugustusOxy commented on Project CARS Studio Boss Admits to Problems Wi...:

The console isn't the problem, the developers are.

Retro was able to make Metroid prime look fantastic on the gamecube, despite the 'disc limitations' and the hardware limitations. ZOE2 on the PS2 still is one of the best looking games of any generation. The 'we can't get it to work' excuse is just that, its an excuse. Means they fail. Ignore the artist that can paint a giant mural, pay attention to the one who can paint a detailed piece on a postage stamp.



AugustusOxy commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

I blame steam for starting this whole 'appeal to the budget of the broke college student' mentality that is ruining gaming. You never own digital games, people need to realize that. No matter how good a sale it is, you're still getting hosed.



AugustusOxy commented on Video: We Tackle The Dual-Stick vs. Motion Con...:

At risk of sounding old, I'll tell everyone a story.

Several, and I mean several years ago, people were on the fence about this 'd-pad' thing... after so many consoles had joysticks, no one was interested in this weird flat dpad thing. After some time, it became the standard, only to be replaced with the analogue stick, which also caught hell when it first came out.



AugustusOxy commented on ​Feature: The Poor Career Choice of Super Sm...:

I'm fine with people playing games for money, no problem here. I just couldn't do it, I like gaming and it is my passtime, not my job. I made another passion of mine a career, I'm not one to assume that all passions should be made into profit.

I like sex, doesn't mean I want to become a pornstar.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo Ditches Plans To Create New Hardware ...:

Too many hoops to jump through. I was reading up on this and it seems like the chinese government will be pocketing most of the profits from the consoles anyway. Not worth it. You'd have to sell hundreds of millions of units just to justify the decision. They made the right choice.



AugustusOxy commented on Nintendo of America Apologises for amiibo Shor...:


I'd rather pay money for something and actually physically own it than be a sheep that buys 'digital licenses'. The amiibo I can actually own for my entire life, pass down to my grandchildren, sell to someone else. Regular DLC on the other hand is vapor, it doesn't actually exist. So yeah, keep telling people they're dumb, ya sheep.



AugustusOxy commented on Hacker Produces Region Free Exploit for Curren...:


Some games never, ever come over here unless imported.

Do you ever eat foreign food? Or enjoy foreign shows? Imagine if I came up to you while watching a foreign show and smashed your TV in and told you that you weren't allowed to watch it because it's foreign. That is what region locking is basically about.



AugustusOxy commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Problems With Trends and...:

Also, in my personal experience, 'younger gamers' don't like colorful, cute games like the big N produces.

When i was a kid and when I finally upgraded to an SNES, I played Contra and Super Mario World. Contra got most of my attention because it was a meathead shoot-em-up where you kill horrific monsters. As I got older, Super Mario World became my favorite SNES game instead.

Kids don't see that logic, they just see a game where you can 'do what you want to do' and they buy it, they don't understand the artisan work that goes into making a quality game. This is why a lot of really bad game sell anyway, or why most children's movies get made into video games. They know there is that unrefined market out there.

So excuse me if I'm not on board with the idea of appealing to younger consumers.
