BertoFlyingFox commented on Giana Sisters Developer Under Fire Over Diesel...:

The hell? Diesel is a German surname, Rudolf Diesel is the engineer who made the diesel engine. This is completely ridiculous lol.

Next up: Mcdonald's sues famous farmer for using same name.
"Frankly, we sell cows that go moo and chickens that go cluck...this children's song is entirely too similar to Mcdonalds branding. Shut it down!"



BertoFlyingFox commented on Live: The Nintendo Gaming Lounge at San Diego ...:

Yeah whatever, I dont see it as entertaining. Just a lot of commentators acting like bad radio hosts to boring pidgeon-holed playstyles and character choices.

Most of the other games at EVO had exciting moments though. Opinions...go figure.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Live: The Nintendo Gaming Lounge at San Diego ...:

This was refreshing to watch. After seeing how boring wavedashing and edge-hogging made SSB:Melee at's just good to see gamers playing SSB and not boring me to death with un-interesting techniques.

Could've done without all the character mirroring but still, it was fun.

@destinyman That is great news! I've been wanting to play that game again for soooo long after getting a small taste of it sometime in the mid-90's.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Release in Japan See...:

It looks interesting enough to try but my main handheld is a 2DS so I wont be able to use it. That wedge design is just so damn comfortable while playing. I still have a 3DSXL but rarely play it since the clamshell design kinda adds strain to my thumbs.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Areal Passes Kickstarter Goal, Yet More Peculi...:

No thanks, I dont back spam-bots. I'll stick to reading all the dumb PR they could come up with through gaming site articles.

If they are really not involved with each other in any way, Vostok Games is doing a crap-job at expressing that. They need to release a statement clarifying this junk and stop fawning over the game they're making that's 2 years away. Another company is saying they are you....rectify it you fools!



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

Must be a select group of "PS+ people". I could never buy all the games PS+ gave me for my subscription. Even now with a lot of them being old and pre-owned, it would cost me a lot of cash. The constant discounts and flash sales have been stellar too.

That's exactly the problem. A rewards program is only worth the rewards put out, especially for its "elite status" members. Most reward programs (this includes the by Nintendo) would give you a coupon so you could spend it however you please in their store.

I'm reading comments about buying the amazingly sub-par Game&Wario for the DDP coupon....but they arent realizing how round-about that sounds. "Hmm, I'll just settle for this meh-game and get points for Nintendo's much better rewards program that'll give me a coupon for anything on the eShop".



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

It isnt really the download-only rewards that disappoint's the choices. I got quite a few of those through club.nintendo already and quite a few of the other options dont come across as a "platinum reward".

Would've been nice if this reward came along with a bonus discount for certain eShop games like Tomodachi Life or Yoshi's New Island. Maybe an interesting way of releasing the first gamecube game on WiiU VC....i dont know. Luckily I havent picked up Earthbound or DKCR3D, so it'll be between those for me.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Renegade Kid Open to Another Kickstarter Campa...:

Ehhh, I dont see the need for Moon Chronicles U, unless the amount needed for that to happen is really cheap, probably wont be a successful KS. I know I wont be picking it up, it doesnt interest me much...if at all.

These guys need to regroup and go back to the drawing board. They should consider all the genres they like and pick one they've never been too involved with. A third person RPG with exp and loot, or a turn-based RPG akin to Divinity: Original Sin but with all the weirdness of an RK developed game. There are so many possibilities.

People on twitter are just going to yell out re-treads of old games....just move on and leave Moon Chronicles for what it is.



BertoFlyingFox commented on First Impressions: Hyrule Warriors Is Zelda, B...:

Well duh. It's a Dynasty Warriors game first, if you dont like that then dont get the game. Literally the most simple concept a consumer can get.

And yet here's an entire article essentially warning people this wont be Twilight Princess2. lol



BertoFlyingFox commented on Review: Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship E...:

I'm glad WiiU owners get to play this game, the original was a-mazing for me on Vita. I dont see much of a point in double dipping for this release though, the added bells and whistles arent enough to entice me.

Now if there was asynchronous co-op where we each get our own screen and are allowed to be a bit distanced from each other...that would've had me purchasing this game again. The way it is now, the game is too demanding platform wise for co-op.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Aussie Rating Outs Wii U Virtual Console Relea...:

It wouldnt do that though. Not sure how cross-buy will all of a sudden fill 3DS owners with the need to buy a WiiU.

"I was never going to get a WiiU....but they give me two versions of Metroid Fusion for buying one! Which means that it's totally worth buying a $250+ WiiU for" --Said no one ever.

WiiU games sell the WiiU...not VC cross-buy which has been released to little effect and really only exists because Vita is in the horrible slump it's in.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Aussie Rating Outs Wii U Virtual Console Relea...:

The aussie rating outs apparently dont mean anything, still nothing on CV: Aria of Sorrow that was "outed" 4 months ago.

Hey guys....GBA games arent coming to 3DS. You either enjoy them on an original GBA, a WiiU, an emulator, or not at all. You could boycott, kick, scream, laugh, write a Tomodachi Life song about it, tweet it, post it on facebook, sign something on Change.Org, photoshop something about it, post an amusing picture on Miiverse, create a wont change anything.

Nintendo - "Hey, I know what we should do that will be a lot of effort for little-to-no reward, we should do the difficult job of porting GBA games to 3DS and then give them out for free for the people who buy GBA games on WiiU"

Porting to 3DS isnt dropping a movie file onto a USB and calling it a day. It takes effort from employees that need to be compensated, Nintendo isnt a videogame charity drive.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

This worries me a bit.

On one hand, all the original backers are getting whatever stretch goal content is achieved in this second project, so there's no need to back it again in order to get the new content.

On the other hand, this could easily add too many bells and whistles to what is supposed to be a $20 action/platformer. English voice acting seems frivolous for the scope of the project, especially if it can further delay the game and cause dumb licensing issues down the line.

As for wanting to franchise the whole s̶e̶r̶i̶e̶s̶ (one unreleased game) so quickly, Inafune is really reaching with that one. All I'll say is good luck.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Iwata's Approval Rating Rises While Miyamoto's...:

Eh, both of the approval ratings didnt really change by much compared to last year. I would say it's nothing more than a few people (when compared to the size of the AGM) changing their votes based on a whim.

People shouldnt be looking too hard at what may have changed Miyamoto's rating, most of the voters probably want a constant stream of Mario platformers and some iOS games. Half the Nintendo library that most fans enjoy would probably gain disapproval from these guys.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

Sounds more like the developers of Squids Odyssey just decided to do their own type of promotion for their game. If anything, this points out that Nintendo let's developers treat their game sales however they want.

More like a cross-promotion deal than an actual cross-buy initiative.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

The data is kinda pointless. For one, tablets have multiple purposes, they arent dedicated gaming machines. Of course parents will buy a tablet, but "for their child" is complete bull. They're getting one for the household, so mommy and daddy can use it, the kids could maybe play a few free games and Minecraft in order to shut them up for X period of time, then shove homework in their face.

the reading stat is also too ambiguous, 45% are reading what, nutrition facts and TeenBeat Magazine?

Without detail, it just seems like they mined pointless data while asking the wrong questions. And I dont mean this comment to be on the "side" of handheld gaming or anything like that, just pointing out this is a very unfocused study.



BertoFlyingFox commented on S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and Metro: Last Light Developer...:

That was a very weird trailer, the voice-over just kept repeating the name "Areal" and the previous S.T.A.L.K.E.R games. And saying "a famous writer" was working on it without announcing his/her name is even weirder.

The comments seem to point that all of these are recycled STALKER assets....these guys need to either defend their claims with something a bit more candid, or disappear without a trace if this is a scam.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Discusses Future Cross-Platfo...:

Cross-buy isnt that important, gaming enthusiasts just consider it so because of the perceived loss in value.

The way the Vita is going now, they can keep cross-buy. It's only been a few titles that have used the feature, while a lot of other titles dont even support it. I wouldnt consider that a great example to persuade Nintendo with.

Put simply, you dont have to buy a 3DS and WiiU version of every VC game just because they are there. It just sounds like people who loved something so much, they bought it twice....and now they want free money for it.

I bought a copy of Shovel Knight through Kickstarter, that doesnt mean I'm entitled to both a 3DS and WiiU version of it. I'll show my support and buy the game on as many platforms as I feel like....without holding them to the perceived standard of a handheld that's been reduced to a "companion device".



BertoFlyingFox commented on Philips Secures Wii Patent Victory Over Ninten...:

The UK judges' decision will be successfully appealed for sure. Philips wanted any patent infringement to stick, so they tossed three out in hopes the judges would agree to any of them. Only a UK judge did so far and his reasoning is too generic to consider it knowledgeable in any way.

If it was a different type of technology argued here, I wouldnt be so inclined to disagree with the judge. But this wont stick unless someone at Philips starts greasing pockets, they definitely got the news coverage they wanted though and that was the goal they were hoping for.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo TVii Update Adds New Features and Imp...:

I personally dont see the point in the TVii app. It seems like a glorified TV Guide but opposed to the TV Guide that's already on my TV.

Putting anyone on constantly tweaking/fixing the thing is a wasted resource imo. This is the one thing I feel didnt jive with Nintendo at all, but they released it half-assed anyway and now constantly fixing it. And yet still no folders or warawara plaza themes....



BertoFlyingFox commented on Don't Worry, Nintendo Hasn't Forgotten About T...:

I've been happy with their VC releases but eventually I would like to see it progress into N64 and GC games playable on WiiU with the usual Miiverse integration and the suspend feature.

Still hoping to see Aria of Sorrow on the VC, would love to play that Castlevania again.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

Nintendo absolutely devoured this E3, there was just constant info/gameplay coming out of their showing. But really, a lot of the games shown for a 2015 release across all platforms were amazing. It's going to be a great 2015 for gaming in general.

As for what's releasing in 2014, Nintendo and surprisingly Microsoft had a lot of games I was interested in. While Sony's 2014 release schedule was lacking for my tastes.

And the saddest part of all of E3 for me, the Vita being ignored while they focus on PSTV....apparently Sony doesnt want to remember the name "Vita" ever again.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

I've got a WiiU and a PS4, I like them both so far but WiiU gets more playtime out of me. I just prefer it.

I understand how they could track PS3/PS4 owners (though not if the consoles are always kept offline) but not for Wii owners, especially through the Nielsen system with very specific samplings.



BertoFlyingFox commented on E3 2014: Amiibo Figures Will Have A Price Tag ...:

So that would put it at $15 per figure. Considering you could use each one across multiple games, the figures look nice, and they arent all absolutely needed for the games they support....yeah, I dont mind that.

I see myself spending $30 at most for two SSB figures I like then maybe picking up a few as ZeldaU or ClayKirby figures come out.



BertoFlyingFox commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Won't Bring Live Twitch Stre...:

I personally dont need it. Game DVR is a very niche thing, used by very few gaming enthusiasts when considering the whole community. So when something is that niche, it usually gets dedicated hardware/software for the dedicated DVR enthusiast.

Now why in the hell will I need my consoles to worry about that functionality when there are better capture cards and editing programs? Unless of course they want to bog down their system with a kind of needless functionality that could be so demanding, developers have to find solutions on how to work around it.

I wouldnt be surprised if we eventually find out that on-board game DVR makes it harder for developers to provide an optimal console experience. Look at the gained flexibility XBO got when dropping Kinect...imagine dropping a DVR that's always recording the last 15 minutes of gameplay.
