I guess they consider "tomahawk" something that might catch offense in the West......but replacing it with "cowboy" isnt the best thing to do when considering American history. Could've named it "brave warrior" or "axe warrior" and kept the native motif.

I'm part indian and wouldnt be offended by any of those names. "Red Skin" is really the most deragatory one used.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Download: 12th November (North America):

Folks really shouldnt get too hyped about this NDirect. Smash DLC, a more in-depth look at XCX, and maybe tidbits about Yokai Watch/Mario Tennis/Animal Crossing.

Anything else (besides more F2P content) would surprise me, they seem to be hunkering down til March.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Dinosaurs and New Playable Characters Are Now ...:

I'll probably get the Darth Maul figure eventually, that's about it. It would be nice if they made more playsets that continue the CloneWars and original trilogy stories.

I see there'll be a Force Awakens playset releasing with the film, but it seems like a waste to drop what they built in the previous two sets.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Shares Level Out After $4 Billion Dro...:

Ouch. It's clear that a lot of the new investors (after the DeNA partnership) considered last week a "make or break" moment.

An app that looks like it was made by a few developers in a home-office was not what they were expecting, whodathunkit.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Shares Suffer Major Drop as Investors...:

We're talking about investors here, so things can sway to one side or the other at the drop of a hat. But there's a lot to consider.

Nintendo has always been extremely slow to change (a lot of aspects havent changed at all). So when they start hinting at better prospects, investors are going to want something significant leading up to the big holiday season. Instead they got news of delays, smaller profits than last year (despite amiibo selling by the boatloads) and a planned app (not a game) that's debuting well after the holidays. An app that looks like a small dev team could've made it in a few weeks.

Meanwhile, on the fan side of things. We know of the delays, arent affected by the financial report (unless you own Nintendo stock), and know that there may be an NDirect hinting at unannounced games that are supposedly releasing in the next 8-9 weeks. Things arent great at NintendoHQ right now.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo's New Membership Service Is Called "N...:

Sounds good to me. Lol at all the folks that apparently need some silly WiiU pun in their Nintendo brandings now. Sounds like the kind of account we always wanted and further hints at what the NX may be able to do.

Nintendo should've called it Super Wiicount 64! /s



BertoFlyingFox commented on StreetPass: Earn Yourself Tri Force Heroes 'Fr...:

"The game also restricts you by only allowing you to earn 'Friendly Tokens' using the local-multiplayer mode."

I did not know that....pretty lame. Other than that one bit of news, the game has been fun. Hopefully it's changed so we can get tokens through StreetPass or online play with friends.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Talking Point: As Rumours Come and Go the Desp...:

It would be nice to get an NDirect but really any news regarding Q1 2016 and beyond would be nice.

As is, they released Triforce Heroes, there was a very small tease in an Aonuma interview, and a digital release of Fatal Frame. The last bit of news I remember was the StarFox Zero delay.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Originally D...:

I think the SP mode is awesome, it feels pretty challenging when having to switch between doppels or making sure the right item is at the top of the totem. Love the MP too, havent tried the arena yet though.

This is kinda what I always wanted in an LoZ game, 8/10 for me. Kinda weird that there's no amiibo functionality though.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Here's Where The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force He...:

I like that they made a timeline and it's a bit complicated. The Hero of Time was never going to have an easy history to follow.

I get the feeling ZeldaU will land under the defeated timeline, right after Adventures of Link. But there's always the chance that ZeldaU will have time travel and will unite all timelines.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

I dont mind buying digital but prefer physical if I have the option. The only way there'll be an all-digital future is if all retail outlets suddenly show massive drops in sales. Physical has a sales presence that a download card will never achieve.

Steam/GoG are amazingly good for PC and even then there are plenty of physical PC releases.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Aonuma Talks the Legend of Zelda's 30th Annive...:

I'd like to see them actually plan something for Zelda's 30th and hype 2016 up in November/December with bits of news/gameplay clips. Aonuma is making it seem like nothing is lined up but I'm betting he's trying to downplay it and keep promoting Tri-Force Heroes (which I cant wait to pick up tomorrow).

Personally, their anniversary efforts in the past were lacking. So here's hoping that they actually show off for this one, I'll be turning 30 too



BertoFlyingFox commented on Rumour: A List of Unreleased Titles for the eS...:

All I know is that I would love to replay Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword with no motion controls. Dont have anything against motion controls, I thought they were fine in both games, but I would love to replay them with just traditional buttons on WiiU. An HD upgrade for both would be a dream come true.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Video: Here's Some More Footage of The Legend ...:

I was interested at first but the demo threw all that out the window. I like the concept and filling out maps but boy is the combat boring and progress is a huge grind. They would've been better off just copying Radiant Historia's combat because this system doesnt feel very strategic.



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

I dont think it's that big of a deal. Everyone has been saying "this game will be the game that boosts WiiU sales!" since the thing released in 2012, delaying one might weaken their bottom line but that's better than releasing a mediocre starfox game.

Besides that, the way StarFox Zero has been advertised thus far hasnt garnered a big enough following. It was originally scheduled to release 2 months from now, that isnt enough time to hype a game in this day and age. I think advertising the hell out of it from January til release would be safe, they have a lot of competition.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Some Western Splatoon Players Would Prefer Not...:

I'd prefer regional servers. It isnt really about the competition but the lag. A regional option would be just that, an option for people who lag out ridiculously when playing against folks overseas. I would even like better matchmaking so lower level players dont have to spend one of their first few matches against lvl20s with high-spec gear.

Otherwise I keep getting teamed up with people overseas, my ping goes through the roof and I'm spending all my matches rubberbanding across the stage and not even seeing paint shoot from my gun. Mind you, my PS4 and XBO handle online play with folks overseas just fine.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

Great review guys, it really does sound like they've streamlined the level-creation genre. I was never really interested in making my own levels in other games, here it seems I may create a few before even playing the challenge levels.
