@rjejr

We really need a better way to communicate. XD

Kodu...kudo...cant say im familiar with it. When I started learning programming it was straight in with a high level procedural language (Python) followed by dabbling's in the Objecct-Oriented Java, and once I hit university, I went into HTML, HTML5, CSS, CSS3, JavaScript and JQuery and C#.

@Yorumi

Perhaps. I just feel as though those other development tools are very niche. My niche is Mario Maker. It's not a matter of whether or not it would be too hard, but at the same time imagine it for the consumer. I know some who wont touch Mario Maker for the reason they aren't interested in development.

I'm more in a mood due to the past few days. Crap, crap, more crap from people on my course. So I'm thinking, bugger to it, I'll cancel the current project. Why should I care if these people don't think I'm good enough to even sit in Unity and make a game from scratch?

That comment about Lotchecks makes it seem like the other companies do any better QA. Seen some of those games last year?

Also, the idea that newer developers cant produce good games is quite frankly insane. Sure there are less good than bad, but totally writing them off is a bit offensive. Plus even veterans are capable of absolute crap.

This is a case of if it happens, it happens. You lot want Nintendo to get with the times, here it is. The "Holy Grail" of gaming. Steam and it's flaws. You made your bed, now lie in it. ;)

Can't defend stupid. Doesn't mean it has to be tolerated in the comment section.

Ive got 3 straws in this bottle right now. I'm loving it. Especially after the "You aren't gay you're pansexual go die" tirade I got the other day from classmates. Must be an alcoholic.

Nintendo has only recently started laughing at you guys. We never got Final Fantasy 1-6, Mega Man 6, Star Force 3, Super Mario RPG until the Wii, or Earthbound until 2013. Oh, and Pokémon ORAS a week late for no reason. This is a recent thing for you guys.

And why would Reggie have say in the date of an optional event in a video game? Doesn't he have other things to be doing? Where is the logic in that?

More anti-consumer? Allow me to show you an example that Sony spewed out today.

"By getting this exclusive DLC deal we can benefit all gamers"

Except those that don't play the game on a Sony system or have a system the game isn't even released on. Plus, a Zelda engine in the context of Mario maker is a lot of mechanics and tools that in terms of creativity is simply harder to produce. Youd have to factor in not thousands of possibilities like in MarioMaker, but millions. Every item, every variation of an enemy, every unique dungeon or game mechanic.

For different gaming experiences, yes. Why bring it up? Do you just love being negative? If so why come here if you don't look for something positive?

Hell, I'm not popular over on PushSquare, but I at least go there looking for a reason to want a PS4, since I have the previous 3. You just seem to exist solely to annoy.

I don't tolerate people complaining unjustly. And that's most of the fans after an announcement of some kind. It's why we have a joke here of me sitting with a silly straw and a bottle of Jack Daniels, which I do on heavier days around here.

@dkxcalibur

I woke up in the middle of argument. Im having a day where I wont tolerate anyone moaning about anything. Most days I let it slide as entitlement but today, and the amount I've seen it today too, is just...maddening.

I mean, so what it's on a bad day for you guys over there? Your life isn't going to end. It's like people who say Smash Bros should always be like Melee. It's not like Melee suddenly vanished from the known universe when Brawl arrived. It still exists and you can still play it, let everyone have their own fun you know? If you don't like it, well put your pacifier back in your gob but don't throw your toys out of the pram.

@Kaze_Memaryu

Im going to strike you down right now.

Firstly, its not the first purposefully developed for mobile game by Nintendo. THat is later this year.

Secondly, who said new IPs created for mobile? They said all existing IP are open for mobile development. As for pathetic, that's your opinion, but at least make sure you have the correct information before calling such judgements.

@TeeJay

Le gasp. Well good for you. Fight with your voice. I don't think the world is going to end, because one multinational corporation with hundreds of games under its belt at any one time, made a decision to have an optional event with temporary rewards on a mildly inconvenient day, to one nation of the world full of 7 billion people.

I doubt everyone in Nintendo of America sat and said "Let's put it on this day" if anything it was a small team, probably not even in NoA. The order probably came from NoJ since the game content is managed from there.

But remember guys, it's all about America. There is nowhere outside of America. The world is flat and when something goes slightly wrong you lot throw your damn toys out of the pram because you are so damn self-entitled you think everything has to be the way you demand it. If something isn't completely in line with your schedules the damn world is ending.

The moment a game goes to the EU first, you lot start complaining. When an event is on a national holiday, you lot have a go. When ANYTHING doesn't meet your highly self imposed expectations of what you deserve and should receive and nothing else, you start raising hell. I have news for you people, when something isn't the way you want it, it's not the be all end all! There are more people in this world than you!

...This rant wasn't aimed at you @TeeJay, but damn. The comments section here riles me up something fierce :( @rjejr I need my friend Jack mate.

Well, no one is making you do that, but that's your choice. Made your bed, now lie in it.

@TeeJay

Even if anyone happens to be home that day, it's only because there will be guests over. Unless you live outside of America...

Okay, lets all stop moaning about that please? It's an unfortunate occurance that happened due to necessary action to make the Splatfest events more enjoyable and accessible after issues with the Japanese ones. Would you rather have an event that worked and no one went to, but worked regardless, or one everyone went to, didn't work, and the game got lambasted? Pick your poison and stop moaning.

@darth2d2

Goooood damn. That's some serious engineering there. How the hell do they pull that off? It's like getting Xenoblade Chronicles to fit on a cartridge. 0-0

I also notice the Wii U hard drive despite being smaller, can hold more games than the standard 500GB competitor models. Usually due to how big patches are, and mandatory installation of poorly compressed games.

But for less energy than an SNES? I knew it used less than the Wii but wow.

@Inkling

Well, we have a team of 5. 2 composers included. Art is underway, last few concepts are being worked on. Im getting my first musical sample for the game on Friday and I want to have a demo with three levels out by the end of summer.

Apart from that we were at 6 members but one dropped out. Plus...with recent events this game may well be coming to a certain system. But stay tuned for more ;)

@KTT

Ah yes. I love the in battle models, they just aren't used well by GameFreak. I prefer the overworld of Hoenn in 3D to Kalos, maybe that's because the basis for design was already there is some detail.

XY proved they knew nothing of programming in 3D. ORAS fixed that. The rollerskates are no longer a thing, movement is no longer D-Pad 8 directional and stiff or sliding everywhere good luck with precision for 1 tile paths.

Again, they have good ideas, then for some...reason...they drop them in favour of something worse. At least in ORAS I can shut the PSS up, since in XY I don't enjoy being reminded of online components that block access to my menu when they pop up, or that my battery is low despite the red lights on the system.

@KTT

GameFreak seems to struggle with a lot of things. Like keeping their good ideas in subsequent games. That one became noticeable as each game iterated. Instead they often bring back the meh and try to justify it.

I wont say they struggle with 3D Graphics. They struggle with trying to do 3D graphics and keep the game running smoothly. They also struggle more with 3D Animations, namely when a Pokémon is hit (Rock Slide, I'm looking at you with the hit animation playing 3 times in one move). It either just stands there with one short looping idle animation, has maybe 3 for offensive and one for getting hit. The sprites in Gen 5, with constant movements that changed based on status, were more interesting. I prefer my spinning Ferroseed over a Ferroseed that just sits. And waits. And does nothing. It's more visually appealing.

@Folkloner

Police it properly. By all means, outside of automation, can you suggest a feasible way of moderation 10 million people posting to a wide range of communities all at once, many multiple times per day? If so I'd love to hear it and maybe you can give Nintendo the advice.

@Spoony_Tech

In the UK the only stores that stock amiibo now are GAME. Even then, it's pre-order only hence the scarcity. I'm not sure WHY it's pre-order only though. They confirmed to me that there is probably stock waiting and they already sell them at a very inflated price so...iunno. That's to do with GAME themselves though. Anything Nintendo might as well not exist to them. My friend went in for Bravely Default and got asked what that even was.
