Birthday_Boy commented on Nintendo Wins Four At The Game Awards 2014, Wh...:

Congrats to Nintendo. Very successful year. They came up with more wins than I imagined.

Also really liked how The Game Awards didn't have stuff like "Best PS4 Game" or anything like that. I'm never a big fan of those categories.

As for the Hearthstone. I'm pretty interested to try the game out. I've heard stories of people really getting addicted to that game.

Birthday_Boy commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Call me a blind quack, but I don't think Sonic Boom for either system is a travesty.
I think it's dumb to dismiss handheld Sonic games, simply because they're not these big experience and yet mention giving the Sonic IP to small companies instead.
What should happen with Sonic is that SEGA should give Dimps the right to make a home console 2D Sonic game, because they have given most of the best Sonic games of the past decade.

Birthday_Boy commented on Loot Crate amiibo Details and Pricing are Conf...:

@WaLzgi Understandable, but Loot Crate is known for their good deals in their boxes. Plus what's the point in getting a box, when you're breaking even on the deal?
This doesn't even include the Government sales tax, which can lead this "deal" at over $180 depending on where you live.
I guess one benefit is that you get some of these figures a bit earlier than when they're on sale, but even then, not all of them and it's only for a short amount of time.
I'm sure you can get a better deal for all 10 of these figures over the holiday season anyway.

Birthday_Boy commented on Video: Nintendo's Wii U Holiday Commercial Kee...:

I hate when people say Nintendo's marketing sucks.
This is how I see it: Nintendo branches their advertising in two fashions.
The hardcore market- They team up with IGN and Playboy to advertise Beyoneta 2. They make crazy Nintendo Directs to inform their gaming audience.
And the casual market: The one you can guaranteexs watches television daily, is more vulnerable to commercials and has a family.

Birthday_Boy commented on Watch the Sonic Boom Gang Try to Rescue a Cat:

I can't wait for this game. We don't get alot of open 3D Platformers that aren't Mario in the industry, and the 2 most notable ones (Disney Infinity, Skylanders) can cost up to $100 for a great experience.
I'm not judgy when it comes to Sonic games (I actually liked Sonic Lost Word, despite the noticeable flaws) so I'm sure I'll like the game.

Birthday_Boy commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

@Dipper723 Homebrew isn't illegal. Modding a game is not illegal. Everyone does it in the PC industry. There are modders and homebrewers out there who have good intentions and want to improve a game, like Super Smash Bros, or Super Mario 3D World, or Sonic Lost World and now they're only legally not able to because Nintendo has legally binded these people not to, which is sad because it means we'll never get user-made content like this.

Birthday_Boy commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

@Dipper723 You're not unable to have the right because Nintendo told you not to. You're unable have that right because it's against the law. The man never stated his intention was to pirate and considering there is no way to pirate on the Wii U as of typing this, I don't think that was the main intention.
This agreement actually goes against topics such as Mario Kart 8 homebrew. At the moment we know one group is in the middle of modding the game to gain a competitive scene and I'm sure someone out there wants to do something similar with the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, like what happened with Project M. Project M has grown to become quite popular in the fighting scene. This End-User Agreement goes against modding which some people are justified to be angry about.

Even though its likely to be harmless, he has a point. You own the system and Nintendo is telling you how to use it.
It's like the Xbox One DRM debacle. Microsoft was telling you exactly how to use their system and people got really peeved about it. Even though you bought the system, you don't have all the freedom to do what you want with it, despite it never being necessary to begin with.

Birthday_Boy commented on Flipnote Studio 3D:

@ShadowFang The price of the 3DS was nowhere near $400 or $300 so of course you got robbed to begind with ;)
But seriously if you bought a system mostly for flipnote software, then you probably should reconsider your priorities. At the point of typing this, Super Smash Bros. just came out. THAT is something to set priorities on.
To say there's been nothing between the 2.5 year gap of Ocarina of Time 3D and A Link Between Worlds is the biggest joke I've heard in a while. There was Super Mario 3D Land, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Mario Kart 7, Fire Emblem Awakening, Pokemon X and Y, several Etrian Odyssey games, Paper Mario Sticker Star, Kid Icarus Uprising, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Ace Attorney Dual Destinies, Resident Evil Revelations and it continues to get new games as it now has Bravely Default, Kirby Triple Deluxe, 2 new Professor Layton games, one of which is an Ace Attorney crossover and the amazing Super Smash Bros. released last Friday.
If North American 3DS owners go without this application, its only a small loss in my perception, because I firmly believe as it stands, the 3DS is the best system to buy right now.

Birthday_Boy commented on Pokémon Trading Card Game Launches on iOS in ...:

Better late than never (never, like those Pokemon Rumble U figures that never came to local EB Games)
I'm still waiting for a Canadian-inspired Pokemon region. We're probably the most diverse land out there. We have maritime islands, snowy teriritories, big cities, immense prairies, pacific beaches and alot of different ethnicities.
Heck, just base it off of Toronto, you'll get alot of inspiration there.

Birthday_Boy commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@SetupDisk There's a difference between making a new console and making a new platform though.
A new platform requires grabbing a new audience, it requires alot of new resources (especially if you're going to compare to the Atari days) and it requires a unique dev team. It might also mean acquiring a new company.
We do know Nintendo did acquired a mysterious company for $100 Million that might be related to QOL, and if so, that alone can set apart the difference between a new platform and a new console.

Birthday_Boy commented on Standard 3DS Consoles Will Have Limited Online...:

Anyone who claims they're doing this on purpose is just being silly.
Miiverse and Nintendo Photo uploader to them is free advertisement for Smash, and no one would ever consider sharing Smash Bros. photos as a selling point to the 3DS.

Birthday_Boy commented on Soapbox: Fan Expo 2014 - A Nintendo Fan's Expe...:

There were 2 Disney Infinity demos there. The one you went to, and a barebones one at the Big Hero Six booth, which exclusively had characters from Disney's upcoming animation. And when I mean barebones, I mean the person that made the toybox made it so unappealing. Infinity has a good prebuilt Toy Box, this one was flat and too big.
I got to play Starwhal there. I even got to ask one of the developers when the Wii U version is coming out. He said that it will release after the Playstation versions of the game. He also claimed that an incentive to play the Wii U version of Starwhal was because you'll be able to play the hilarious game with your old Wii Remotes (never talked about Gamepad usage, but I'm not expecting anything crazy, other than Off-Tv Play).
What I find interesting is that there may be no Nintendo booth at Fan Expo, but they were actually at the Toronto CNE, while Fan Expo was going on. The CNE the biggest fair in Canada that can grab as many as 1 Million people a year. They actually went there to show off Mario Kart 8. Last year, there were playable demos of Super Mario 3D World. Keep in mind that this wasn't released at the time. Nintendo has always chosen a braud audience over a group of gamers, so the fact that they're at the biggest fair in Canada, over the biggest Gaming (and more) Convention in Canada doesn't surprise me.
On a side note: When I was at Fan Expo I streetpassed with over 100 people in one day!

Yeah. It seems strange to not show Wii U footage.
I guess its because they don't want to push people away with just how it looks.
I'm not going to boycott Ubisoft, because a game like this is a big gamble that is costing them millions. Plus, at one point Ubisoft had more games released on the system than Nintendo.

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

Even if The Letter and IQ Test are awful, at least it's original, and they didn't strive to make a crappy game. TreeFall didn't have the resources they needed and NinjaPig's game is actually somewhat entertaining.
Who would want to buy this game when Flappy Bird is $0.00?
This campaign was launched, so crappy games won't sell well again and it's 1000% justified. Similar to Operation Platinum raising the idea that mature games can sell well.
I'm never usually this pessimistic, but I hope your game fails, because its a terrible excuse from a developer and doesn't deserve a penny.

Birthday_Boy commented on Video: Watch These Teenagers As They're Expose...:

@AkDeath Doesn't matter. She's a successful actress on a popular show and is rumoured to be in The Last of Us movie. She has a fanbase of thousands, and will likely peak to hundreds of thousands (if not, millions because as an actress she is taking the right steps).
But it isn't right to judge her on her hat and a face anyways. That's called stereotyping and it only brings the human race steps backwards.

Very interesting, kind of cute.
When you're 16 years old, you have absolutely no reason to know what a NES is. I don't blame these people. My brother is 20 and its fair to say he won't recognize a NES or a SNES when he sees one.
I think the only comment I actually loathed was ironically the teen, blindly preferring SMB to the modern Mario game (including Galaxy 2 and 3D World). Geez.
