BaffleBlend commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

While I understand the concern, I don't agree with it. Restricting them adds a "forbidden fruit" aspect to them that will make them want to play it even more. And they WILL find a way; playing a game owned by an older sibling/parent, for example, or if that fails, they'll turn to illegal downloads.

And the teacher is SERIOUSLY overreacting. Police and social services, which can and will ruin your life even if you're innocent if they get called on you, is way too disproportionate of a retribution for not having the same views on censorship as you.



BaffleBlend commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

Of course, the best-case scenario to just plain have a game starring Zelda.

Seriously, there's a 21 year gap between her playable appearances (disregarding Smash); Wand of Gamelon (1993) and Hyrule Warriors (2014). I think she really needs to get a bit more attention onscreen.



BaffleBlend commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

I don't see why this is a problem. Link is a single soul in various bodies over thousands of years. I don't have a problem with at least one of those bodies being female.

The only thing I'd have an issue with is if the character's appearance was radically altered beyond recognizability (like what happened with Marvel's female Thor, who doesn't look like the character of Thor at all). And with a character like Link, that's really not likely to be a problem as it would be with a lot of other characters.



BaffleBlend commented on Feature: Before They Were Enemies, Sega And Ni...:

@NintyMan: Yeah, that's the only version that's commercially available right now. I actually bought the VC release of WarioWare despite already having the cartridge just so I could get an arcade tabletop experience.

It's definitely a stand-out among Nintendo's other games at the time, (which were mostly clones), and I recommend it.



BaffleBlend commented on Video: What If Street Fighter II Was A 3D Clas...:

No offense, but this would be really unneeded since (the desperately-needs-updated-also-by-the-way) Super Street Fighter IV's already there on the eShop. The original II is horrendously outdated; yes, it made the TFG genre what it was today, but that's just it, it only MADE the genre. It's not the least bit polished.



BaffleBlend commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

No. No streaming, no cloud-based gaming. My internet connection is already choking enough. The insistence that cloud gaming might not be a bad thing is precisely why I'm skipping the non-Nintendo consoles entirely this generation. (I usually at least get one from the PlayStation line, but I'm skipping the 4.)

I don't want to have to eschew the next generation of games entirely, but I will if that's where the cards fall.



BaffleBlend commented on Rumour: Warner Bros. is Working on Building a ...:

With so many people jumping into their own toy-to-life system, the stores aren't going to have enough shelf space to accommodate them all. They already have enough trouble displaying all the current Skylanders, Infinities, and Amiibos.



BaffleBlend commented on Video: Nintendo Promotes Mario Party 10 in New...:

I still have doubts that Amiibo Party is even functional. Mario Party games are decided completely randomly, with the only input the player ever puts in is "A" to advance to the next turn. So yeah, I see how they can fake it, but they'll just be dressed-up normal CPUs. Just like the "human" player is.

In case you couldn't tell, I really, REALLY don't like Mario Party.



BaffleBlend commented on Modder Makes Chrom Playable in Super Smash Bro...:

Model swaps on their own really aren't that impressive anymore. Would have been impressive a couple years ago, but that train has sailed.
People are doing WAY more advanced things with Brawl now. I mean look at Project M, which hacks Brawl into AN ENTIRELY NEW GAME.



BaffleBlend commented on Thor Aackerlund Set To Celebrate The 25th Anni...:

Yeah, yeah, yeah. We all know here how vehemently you're opposed to eSports, Nintendo. Commemorating something that happened 25 years ago and then immediately going right back to your smug, player-hating ways isn't going to magically make everything better.



BaffleBlend commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

I despise Ninja Pig more and more by the day. Someone get that smug-ass, fedora-tipping lunatic off of the eShop!

I'm not making blind accusations, either. He's openly a disgusting, proud fedora-tipper who says "m'lady", and he brings it up on Miiverse whenever he can.
