BaffleBlend commented on The Pokémon Company Sues Fan for Copyright In...:

And people wonder why I've stopped supporting Pokémon as a series. It's in no small part because of how draconian Game Freak's gotten over the years.

The only reason I haven't changed my avatar to reflect my refined opinion is because I'm too lazy to.



BaffleBlend commented on Splatoon 'Octoling' Modder Could Cause Save Da...:

@Dr_Corndog While I personally also like the Inklings better and think this issue needs to be fixed, I do see the appeal myself; the Octarians are pretty tragic villains once you get into things, so I can easily see why people would want to throw them a bone every now and then.



BaffleBlend commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

All I'm saying is, with all the chips they're stacking on the NX, it had better be backwards-compatible.
The PS4 and XB1 not being backwards compatible is what made me swear off both of those console families for good. If Nintendo goes the same route, I might just become a PC gamer or, more likely, drop my gaming habit altogether.



BaffleBlend commented on Talking Point: Tatsumi Kimishima Is A Safe Pai...:

At first I was concerned because of his financial, non-game-development-related background. But he at least seems to acknowledge his own limitations and areas of expertise, which is why he's doing the team thing; he handles what he does best, the other two handle what they do best.

I think we can trust this guy.



BaffleBlend commented on Nintendo Download: 10th September (North America):

The state of the 3DS eShop isn't even a joke anymore. It's just sad.

The final 3DS VC release was the Donkey Kong Land trilogy. On February 26th. Seven months. Why? You'd think they'd be giving it a tad more attention with the New 3DS out and bringing in new customers and all...



BaffleBlend commented on Rumour: Fresh Sources Suggest Shovel Knight Is...:

I really hope this rumor isn't true. The pretentious "Indie canon" that thinks it's so high and mighty doesn't deserve the attention of a Smash rep.

And by "Indie canon", I consider Shovel Knight, CommanderVideo, Shantae, Meat Boy, The Player, and Scram Kitty to all be from the same series since they all show up in any indie release ever nowadays. The indie canon is "indie" in name only.



BaffleBlend commented on Nintendo Download: 16th July (North America):

@Olmectron : NoA IS unambiguously more heavily affected by Iwata's passing than NoE, because Iwata took up the position of CEO of NoA as well in June 2013, which means there's a pretty significant gap in operations right now.

NoE has its own regional CEO and wasn't struck as directly as NoA and NoJ were.



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

@DarthNocturnal It's not a valid reason, though. Look at Melee's intro, for goodness' sakes. Nobody complained that he was barely larger than Samus there.

There are plenty of reasons he could have given. Even "I just plain don't like him" would have been more acceptable. But the reason he gave was flat-out silly. And this was after teasing people who wanted him and leading them on for pretty much the entire development period.



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

I'm not a fan of Metroid, at all, and I don't like its fanbase, either. But even I thought Nintendo was pretty much spitting in everyone's faces by showing this off.

It's like the Yamcha of Nintendo IP's – still more than strong enough to blow most others out of the water, but is made into such a joke by its own team at every opportunity that nobody can take it seriously as a contender anymore. First Other M, then Sakurai's relentless spiting of Ridley for Smash supporters, now this. It's like they're trying to blow up the fanbase on purpose.



BaffleBlend commented on BBC iPlayer Finally Arrives On The Wii U eShop:

My anglophile mother would go berserk if this came to the US.

...and I wouldn't complain, either, since though I'm not as obsessed with the UK as her, I do like "Hancock's Half-Hour", "Cabin Pressure", and all that...



BaffleBlend commented on Poll: Is It Time For a Fresh Alternative to th...:

I still think the "backing away from the SNES" thing is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard, even by Nintendo's standards.

If they don't want people to pirate things, then they have a responsibility to keep those things legally available



BaffleBlend commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

Honestly, this is just striking me as foolish. Virtual Console games, with few exceptions, take no effort to develop because the games are already finished; all that has to be done really is licensing.

There is no excuse for the Wii U VC having such a tiny catalogue.
