BlatantlyHeroic commented on Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon is Adventuring ...:

All I want is the last main series game(s) to be released for this generation. I could care less for spin-offs that don't even help further the story of the main games in any way. A true spin-off should be something that follows a minor character in the same world as the player character. Heck, I'd play a spin off where you play as the Champion and do whatever weird Champion things a Champion does when they're absent from the Pokemon League.

BlatantlyHeroic commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Modest Sales Targets...:

@Jayvir Gamefreak doesn't want to put main series Pokemon games on home consoles. They think that portability and connectivity is the most important thing to the Pokemon series rather than utilizing new technology to make something far better than anything we've ever had.

BlatantlyHeroic commented on ​Famitsu Reveals Some Fresh Details on Fire ...:

@JaxonH They don't care how you feel. Fan sales do not trump casual sales. Casuals are where the money is at. As a company you'd rather have that game that everyone can get into and play (not to mention they give you a difficulty selection), a game that looks so interesting aunts and uncles will buy it as gifts to their nieces and nephews. A game should not be limited to niche sales if it wants to be successful. You aren't entitled to anything. Deal with it.

@JaxonH You see, they don't owe you anything, and you don't owe them anything. You don't own the franchise, they can do what they want with it. Quite frankly, there are people who care more about the story than strategics. Why should your play style have any more merit than theirs? It shouldn't.

BlatantlyHeroic commented on Nintendo Assisted Monolith Soft With Xenoblade...:

@HorniiGremlin Well, neither of those are HD, but the Wii version DOES have better resolution and is more beautiful overall. The 3DS version however does have the advantage of being portable and giving you a vast world-type game on the handheld, something that the 3DS was lacking before. That said, this game doesn't require any knowledge of the previous game, but if you still want to try it out I'd go ahead and get it on the Wii.

@Captain_Gonru I thought they were an hour? Well.. I guess they'd only be three minutes if they crash hard right away... which is suddenly a very big concern to me because... well... this is Nintendo we're talking about... XD

The whole point of this game isn't strategics though. It's having fun with a bunch of other people around the world, splashing color over a grey surface and covering terrain while chaotically shooting each other and revenge killing. Not everything has to be a competitive meta game or strategic warfare. This is simply about having a good time shooting paint at everything as chaos ensnares any order left before.

I wonder if that's why the stages are grey and barren? Do they represent a unified, controlling, and oppressive dystopian society? Perhaps this game itself is a metaphor.

@Captain_Gonru If they did that, the whole impact of seeing them when you buy the game would be lessened. It's like film companies deciding to stop showing most of the movies in trailers, and people demanding they start showing all of the movie in the trailers again. :P

@OneBagTravel I know right? It's like: "I have no common sense so I need voice chat because I'm not sure if my team wants me to cover the ground in paint or not."

Here's what I think this is: Nintendo is using this as a Beta to test their servers for this game since they seem to always have problems with online and large amount of traffic, thus the specific times are put in place in order to Beta Test and put large amounts of stress on the servers to see if they hold up as well as they're predicting they will.. It's kind of in the name guys.

BlatantlyHeroic commented on Flygon Was Once Going to Receive a Mega Evolution:

@MitchVogel In multiple interviews Gamefreak has outright denied a "Pokemon Z" from happening as well as anything else they've done before. They claimed that they wanted us all to be surprised each time they announced their games instead. We'll see what comes up next. I wouldn't be surprised if it's totally different from the standard third version and even sequels we've had in the past. Something different is coming... I can feel it. Like a sailor can feel a storm-a-commin'.

BlatantlyHeroic commented on Flygon Was Once Going to Receive a Mega Evolution:

@Ogbert Hahaha, if you're talking competitively, you almost ALWAYS know what to expect. If anything, mega evolution HELPS Pokemon by trying to level the playing field for Pokemon that just weren't up to the task of tangoing with a Tyranitar. Truthfully, all the Pokemon need a little more balancing done. Although, I long for the days back when natures, IVs and EVs were made specifically to give Pokemon variety and personality, so no two Pokemon would be alike. Humans always have to go and ruin things though. Now ya can't play against people and have a shot at winnin' if ya don't breed. It's something we all have to do now, whether we like it or not. I hate it truthfully, but I gotta do it. :P

(doesn't stop me from using my Jolteon, Milotic, Venasaur, Ninetales, Typhlosion and a bunch of other "not up to fluff" Pokemon competitively though ;) )

BlatantlyHeroic commented on Flygon Was Once Going to Receive a Mega Evolution:

Hahaha, this is what really happened: Mega Flygon was in the game for quite a few months, but after seeing Gore Magala, Gamefreak decided to take Flygon out and tweak its design to be more inspired by the ferocious monster that we all have the pleasure of fighting in Monster Hunter 4. ;)

@Rhys Actually, Flygon is pretty frail. It also isn't fast enough and doesn't deal enough damage to make up for how frail it is. Poor thing, it's my favorite Pokemon too. I wish Gamefreak would balance all of the Pokemon more so that they all have their own strengths that make them just as viable as the rest. This is why I think they should make exclusive abilities that help a Pokemon's species out when up against something that far outclasses it so that the playing field can be evened out.

This is marketing bull for: "We are turning into a greedy corporation that cares more about money than our games and the people that buy them".
I guess pride soils every company once they have someone solely obsessed with money calling the shots. Remember though, pride comes before the fall.

@Quorthon Not having voice chat is to protect Nintendo's reputation, as just a single thing kid cussing or a grown up cussing can put them in hot water legally from sue happy parents, not to mention the media could use that to misconstrue information for some type of agenda like they usually do.

Don't like it? Then do something to stop sue happy parents and dishonest news corporations. Otherwise you have no right to complain.

Well... it seems Splatoon is literally the only Wii U game for me this year unless something interesting pops up. I'm kind of disappointed with the Wii U and its lackluster genre line-up. This year just seems to be extremely lackluster. Splatoon and Batman: Arkham Knight are the only games that I'm most likely going to buy (they're also good quality which makes up for the lack of other games to play) and I'm not really sure if the 3DS will have anything to bring me this year, seeing as they don't seem to have a new Pokemon game coming out. I'd love a few JRPGs on it.

Have fun on your slow decline into communism guys!

Let's just let the community (which ends up being clan-like with someone having more power over everyone in the end) have total control over how we live and what we're exposed to. If my children want to play a game like that, I'll be the one that decides. Not the government, not the community, not my child, ME. I'm not going to let my child be exposed to senseless violence, but I will let them be exposed to the real world, and what it's truly like, a little at a time. As long as they understand, then they won't become sociopathic monsters. As long as they're moral living beings that understand right and wrong, they won't go and kill someone.

@SanderEvers Trainer Customization is only one thing. It's the only thing that makes X and Y some-what enjoyable, but it isn't exactly the defining feature of a good Pokemon game. ORAS beats X and Y out at every single thing (mainly because X and Y were rushed and should have stayed in development another year) besides the trainer customization, which didn't even have a good variety of clothes. You see other trainers wearing pompous vests and the like, why can't my character wear something fancy like that? No one knows. The very fact that they didn't have a fashion choice that appealed to me negates the whole "character customization factor" from my pros list, since the options were pretty discriminatory towards males. Girls could wear a vest, but a male couldn't? What's up with that?

Over-saturation. Happened with Guitar Hero/Rock Band, happened with Shooters, happened with Just Dance type games, it even happened with motion controls. People need to realize that when you get casuals on board with something, the fad is only going to last a year or a few. Nintendo made the wrong decision thinking they still had all the casuals after the whole Wii success. It's best not to even bother with things like this.

@Plywood That's the thing, that's just what the Japanese find more beautiful culturally. The Greeks were more into the overall shape of the body and muscle proportions. Their sculptures were almost always nude, and the reason was because to them, the human body was a beautiful thing.

This whole argument is stupid no matter what side you're on. Human society doesn't even matter, we could all be wiped out by a plague. Would this argument even matter in the face of that? NOPE. We're such trivial beings that like to make everything complicated. This, THIS is why people choose to live in the mountains secluded from other human beings. We're a society that applies rules to every problem we meet. If you were alone in the wild though, and decided that a lion isn't allowed eat you, I'm pretty sure that wouldn't save your life.

BlatantlyHeroic commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

Hey, this is an okay thing in Japanese culture, the only reason people have problems with it is because western regions have a hard time accepting and glorifying the human body. The ancient Greeks did it in their sculptures, but if those sculptures were made in the present day in America/most English speaking countries, everyone would be foaming at the mouth.

It just seems to me that this is more cultural ignorance and the current attitude of most western regions to make everything hyper realistic in all media than anything else. The ancient Greeks would make their sculpture, putting emphasis on body parts. A lot of it was an exaggerated and idealistic image of beauty within the human body. Did they expect to have those exact shapes and sizes? No, because any intelligent person knows that it's impossible to reach those standards, and that it's simply glorifying the beauty of the human body itself.

@Quorthon I sure hope that there isn't any anti-theistic sentiment behind any of that, as that would be morally wrong considering we should all be allowed to believe what we want to believe.

There are certain things that I dislike in this world, those things are authoritarianism, extremists of any sort (religious or not), and anti-theists which group together with the extremist part. Basically, those who will not let people maintain the beliefs that they want. We don't want communism, we want freedom to think and feel the way we decide to.
