Beetlejuice commented on Carbon Fire Studio Launching Frenchy Bird On W...:

@Grumblevolcano

Not assuming anything. I have no problem with any of these types of games appearing on the eShop. I am just confused by the idea that having these budget/knockoff games on there is going to somehow create problems for all the high quality and highly rated content on there.

These people seem to imagine some bizarre scenario where someone goes on to the eShop looking to buy a great game, and instead of Shovel Knight they either intentionally or accidentally buy The Letter.

Stuff like that doesn't happen. If someone buys a cheap $.99 game, they know what they are getting. If they buy a $14.99 game, they know they are getting something with a little more effort out into it.

It's easy to filter the good from the bad, and I believe most consumers go to the eShop with an idea of what they want anyway, so having these cheapo games sprinkled throughout the eShop doesn't detract from anything.

Beetlejuice commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

An NL article that rips off the content of a forum post about a game that is a ripoff of Flappy Birds? I think my mind has been blown!

That said, I will probably buy this game just because. Who cares if it is 'crap' or whatever, it's cheesy looking and cheap. All these dorks whining about it 'not belonging' on a Nintendo system need to find something more important to be concerned about.

@BensonUii

Another good point!

This video series is designed to show off children's ignorance for laughs, much like those 'man on the street' segments on tv shows that only show answers from the most ignorant people.

I can't believe people are getting so worked up over this. It shows that they only think emotionally, not critically.

@ekreig

I think you are vastly over estimating the amount of people who play video games who also frequent video game news websites and forums.

Of all the guys I know who play games (some only casually) I don't think any of them really read about stuff online that much. It would be very easy for children who don't know much about video games to be completely oblivious to the history of said industry before they were born.

In this thread: angry nerds criticize children for not knowing/caring about old video game systems.

Who cares? Why are some of you having such a volatile reaction to this?? I bet if some of you guys had to discuss your knowledge of sports, women, cars and music, your responses would be just as embarrassing!

Beetlejuice commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

There is no reasonable argument for saying people shouldn't be allowed to play ROMs of games that are no longer being produced commercially.

It's like saying you shouldn't be able to read PDF scans of Nintendo Power, and should instead be buying second hand copies.

Beetlejuice commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

Can we ban the accounts of all the people over the age of 13 who are voting for SM3DW? What an overrated and forgettable game. It was the 3DS game in HD with multiplayer, that's it. I finished it and sold it because I knew I would never go back to it.

I voted for SMW. I've been going back to that game almost annually since I first played it in 1992. So much replayability and great controls and design.

Beetlejuice commented on 3DS Homebrew Channel Reportedly in Final Stage...:

How come the mods here always delete comments or forum posts talking about homebrew/emulators (without even posting links), but you guys constantly post articles about the subject?

That said, it would be nice if some NES/SNES/Genesis emulators get created so we can play games on the 3DS that would never be released otherwise.

@Yurikun

You do understand that it is Nintendo themselves which keeps the price of the game high, right? It's not an indicator of quality, it's a calculated move to keep the price artificially inflated to increase its perceived worth.

All other new release games, movies, CDs, books, etc all experience a great price decrease within 6-12 months after they come out. This is the normal way of doing business. The fact that several first party Nintendo titles carry the same price tag 3-4 years after they release as they did when they were new does not mean they are of highe quality. It just means that Nintendo wants to make as much money from the consumer as possible.

@Yurikun

You paying $30 or $70 for an old Nintendo title doesn't prove their worth. It just shows that Nintendo keeps the prices of their games jacked up to an unreasonable level to squeeze every dollar out of consumers that they can get.

If I sell you a ham sandwich for $50 a year after I made it, does that mean you are buying the best quality sandwich you can possibly get? No. It means you are getting played.

@invictus4000

You can add WiiTV, GBA to GC connectivity, GBA card reader, GB printer, N64 expansion pak, Wii microphone, SNES SuperScope, N64 Disc Drive and many others to the list of Nintendo peripherals that were released with much fanfare and which eventually fizzled out because they had no idea what to do with them beyond their initial introduction.

Beetlejuice commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Guess you can't point out the obvious around here without getting coments deleted, so I will just join the mindless masses then!

These developers suck!! It's been 20 years and they are still upset at Nintendo? Get over it! We don't want your crappy game on Nintendo consoles anyway so who cares? Hope these bums don't make any money on Kickstarter and they have to give up

Beetlejuice commented on Video: The Trailer For E.T. Documentary Atari:...:

@rodoubleb

The producers only had a permit to dig for a couple hours if I remember correctly. In that short span they found thousands of games, consoles, and other Atari related products. The exact location of this 'burial site' was well known and documented.

It was not just a 'general landfill', and there is no other 'landfill from the 80's' that contains such a large volume of Atari merchandise anywhere else. An entire warehouse of stuff was buried there.

Looks like this will be an interesting movie, especially the investigate part involving them finding the dump location. I don't understand why so many people here seem disinterested in it.
