BertoFlyingFox commented on Exclusive: MercurySteam Has Been Working On A ...:

Please no. MercurySteam just seem like amateur developers that can only follow the "me-too" formula. I'd rather see them make something of their own and build from there. This is coming from someone who feels LoS1 and MoF were decent, while LoS2 felt drab and goofy.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Chris Prangar, Nintendo Treehouse Staffer Who ...:

He should've read his NDA, been careful not to step over the line when it comes to company info, and never brought up customers at all. Sounds like he did none of those things.

Meanwhile, the podcaster saw an opportunity to get some insider news spilled and succeeded.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

I think it's fine that they announced the NX early. It makes the hardware sound mysterious, with tidbits of news coming in every now and then despite no one knowing anything about it.

So far they have a nice little chunk of the indie scene, would like to see them build on those relationships with the NX.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Scoops Three Gamescom Awards:

A little over a month left until we get Super Mario Maker. Winning these awards and watching people play it at conventions is building up my hype.

I'll be playing custom SMB levels for a loooong time.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Mighty No. 9 Producer Shares Regret Over Delay...:

Well if they plan on being Kickstarter-based developers, they're going to have employees sitting there doing nothing. Comcept is working by the standards of developers that get funding from publishers and think they can just run to kickstarter to get work every time. Nope, that isnt going to work.

How about going back to traditional funding and making a game that releases in a timely manner. Go to FUZE and ask them to fund whatever other games you need. I wont be backing scatterbrained Comcept again, after the first delay that pushed MN9 from Spring to September because of a physical release, I was understanding. But another delay a month before release because of some crappy online component I never cared about...and the delay is another 3+ months. Yeah, no thanks....these guys deserve the bad reputation they're creating for themselves.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

A preview build isnt the entire final release of the game, so I'll wait for that and form my opinion around it.

As for the graphics, they look fine to me. It's enough to get the point across and that's all I care about. As soon as Nintendo figures out how their going to market and release this game, I'll be there day1 to pick it up.



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

I dont expect them to want to match the graphical power of PS4. Nintendo has never been a company to invest in graphics over gameplay, dont think they'd want to deal with the ballooning costs of graphic intensive games.

NX seems like it'll be more about mixing console and handheld gaming seemlessly. Being able to play something slightly better looking than a WiiU game, then switching it over to handheld and playing that same game on the go. Versatility sounds like their goal here, not just another graphics intensive system aping PS4/XBO.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Seeks Improvement at E3 2016, Though ...:

All I could say is that while their Digital Event was a bit lukewarm, they still showed off things I'm interested in playing. The fact that it all comes out in the near future is the best part, I wouldnt want to see a bunch of video game trailers with no release dates in sight.

That's not to say the other folks had bad showings, it was mostly games with such far off release dates that they couldnt even mention a release window.....but they could mention exclusivity deals.

I usually expect E3 2015 to hype up games in the next 6-8 months, not the next 2-3 years.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Feature: Five Key Moments from Nintendo's E3:

At first I wasnt too happy with the digital event reveals but then I started thinking of how Nintendo holds its e3 presentation now. Instead of one stage presentation where everything is shown off they spread it across 3-4 days. The digital event was just one piece of the puzzle that could've been done better.

The Treehouse stuff was great to watch and it actually changed my opinion about the things not fully shown in the digital event. Federation force, starfox zero, fatal frame, and super mario maker looked like pure fun.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Reggie Explains Why Donkey Kong And Bowser Wer...:

Would be great if this partnership meant releasing Legend of Korra and the upcoming Transformers game by Platinum on WiiU.

I dont understand it, Activision and Nintendo always pull off these mediocre deals that result in other Activision games skipping WiiU all together.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

That makes no sense to me. The games that have released sell in ridiculous amounts. Splatoon happened and it has no ties to Nintendo's biggest mascots.

Pitchford is a hack. After that MOBA they're making sells in lukewarm numbers, he'll have 2K churning out another Borderlands with small improvements because they can't think of a way to evolve their game in a meaningful way.

And as for that other idiot, your kids dont know who mickey mouse is because you never showed them, instead you probably played Frozen for them over and over. It isnt some difficult mystery to understand.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda...:

I feel he has a valid point. With the 30th anniversary of Zelda being next year (I also turn 30 heheh), this year being the 30th anniversary of Mario, and a StarFox reveal already in the cards it would've been too pre-mature. This way they can hype it up in early 2016 through an NDirect then really roll out the red carpet for ZeldaU.

The real question is will the NX console announcement lessen their release line-up overall. I have a feeling it'll be both a handheld and home console with backwards compatibility for DS/3DS/Wii/WiiU.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Download: 4th June (North America):

Backed Adventures of Pip and waiting for a code. Missed something in their updates apparently. I guess they decided not to use the extremely convenient survey section of KS because it's a little too convenient....



BertoFlyingFox commented on Splatoon Storms to Top Spot in Japanese Charts...:

It deserves the sales, such a good game. Singleplayer is just as amazing as multiplayer and they perfectly nailed the vibe they were going for. It feels like half of the game was made by long lost CrazyTaxi and Jet Set Radio developers, then the other half was made by budding geniuses under the tutelage of the Nintendo masters.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Parent Trap: ​Splatoon Gets Family Tested, ...:

It's pretty much already devolved into paint roller/machine gun + kraken ability, then get all the clothing that increases special rate. High level players get lumped with everyone else, so some teams will have a few level 15+ players while the opposing team only has low level players.

It's definitely kid-friendly for online play. The balancing is off though, so I'm sure there are a ton of kids just losing over and over until they get tired of fighting lvl30 players with japanese names and ridiculous special attacks.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Deep Silver Parent Company Koch Media Trademar...:

People are wigging out about nothing. It was explained from the get-go, if you arent backing the project then this is none of your concern. Making games costs a lot of money, especially if we're talking about Igarashi and every stretch goal that's been hit.

local 2player, classic mode, retro levels, an alternate 8-bit soundtrack, his biggest castle ever, and hopefully soon a WiiU port. The game will be made in UE4, something with no support on WiiU so in order for them to port it to that console, they're going to have a hard time. They'll be hiring the great Armature Studio for the port. Ports cost money to make.

It's funny how out of the loop gamers are yet they're still so negative despite not knowing anything about the subject.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Feature: Explaining Humble Bundle and What it ...:

What would be really surprising and bold would be if nintendo released humble bundles for their actual IPs too. Humble VC Bundle would generate so much money for charities and bring a lot of attention to both nintendo and the humblebundle guys.
