Cia commented on Video: See the Differences Between Star Fox Ze...:

I don't understand how this looks dated to some people? It's a visual style which can't be really improved in any meaningful way. Does the Wind Waker or Wall-E the animated movie look dated? No. They just look as they do, 'cause of the style. "Dated" is not the same thing as "the lack of huge amount of insignificant details/ lighting effects." It's always possible to increase these things to the point of burst.
Is it possible for a live action movie look dated as well following this tiring logic? The entire argument about graphics these days defy common sense...



Cia commented on Mario History: Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 2010:

SMG 2 was slightly better than its predecessor- technically. However, the original boasts vastly superior storyline and felt a whole lotta more meaningful, which is why I prefer it. Both games are stellar though.



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

Have you actually played through any MS games? If you have and still retain your stance, then I guess it's an opinion difference. But I'd rather take almost any other developer before Mercury Steam. This being said, the blast ball game ain't looking too interesting for me either... not sure what Nintendo's thinking.



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

After playing through the first Lords of Shadow, my stance on this is extremely negative. Gladly, this is rumor can't be true. Nintendo would never hand their beloved franchise to such amateurish developers.



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

"I had hoped to see more complex games coming out of Nintendo in the future, large-scale, seamless world, physics based gameplay, good A.I., etc. "Power" is not just there for graphics after all =(

As far as I know anything, the next Zelda for WiiU will have all of this. GTAV and a bunch of other games for PS3 and 360 had all of it too. Developing a game is not doing miracles with the power alone, and more power does not equal better games. Final Fantasy IX for PSOne is still better than- say- FFXIII for PS3, and it's got nothing to do with the polygon -pushing capabilities of these consoles. It's possible to do great works or forgettable works with almost any technology.



Cia commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

Why is everyone so interested about sales these days? I mean, who cares as long as the Wii U sells enough to warrant its existence.
"But what about the 3rd party!" people are yelling. "We need more games no one's gonna buy!" In reality, we don't need endless amounts of games- or at least i don't need 'em. My wallet can barely handle the current situation with all the virtual console offerings, upcoming exclusives and Wii games i still lack. I'm extremely satisfied to Wii U in general.



Cia commented on Video: Mario Kart 8 Hackers Duplicate Items Fo...:

It's fun as long as the hacker isn't doing it to win the race. Actually, they should lose intentionally. Otherwise, i see no evil in offering other players a rare chance to enjoy a bit more chaotic race.



Cia commented on Gallery: It's Time For Another Influx of Xenob...:

Xenoblade was nothing like MMO:s... it was more like a Final Fantasy game (comparing with the good ones from psone days) with an open world and meaningful exploration. On the other hand, i mostly skipped the optional sidequests and concentrated on the main story. After playing through the original, i have no reason to believe this would disappoint.



Cia commented on Meet Playtonic, A Studio Of Ex-Rare Staff That...:

Nintendo doesn't necessarily need this since the Wii U:s catalogue is already vastly superior and good games just keep coming... but of course i would be delighted if they decided to release it.



Cia commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

I'm starting to hate it how ever game in existence ends up being underrated these days. Not saying that Bayonetta 2 would be one, but i generally don't know what the heck would satisfy an average gamer anymore.



Cia commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

Advanced Warfare is not the "same game" as Ghosts or some other previous entry. Just like every Mario game is not the same, despite of some trolls claiming they are. About the game itself: It looks boring and unimaginative. I'd never spent my money in a game like this.



Cia commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

We're interested in GOOD games. Not unimaginative bleak-fest like Assassins Creed or casual games like Just Dance. Our standards are simply higher than your average gamer's. Sorry, Ubisoft... imagination is the key, and Rayman or Michael Ancel are pretty much the only ones in your league doing in right (for us).



Cia commented on Video: Zant Shows Off His Peculiar Twilight Mo...:

Zelda Cycle is so real. Also, i find Zant annoying. Loved TP though, at the time when it was released, and still do. I find it funny how some Zelda fans turn their coats at every opportunity, at times bashing one game and a few years later praising it.



Cia commented on You Won't Be Able To Cross Swords Online In Hy...:

Who cares? Online co-op games are annoying anyway, since 90% of world's population consists of mentally challenged, rude people (at least when they're anonymous). The lacking of online co-op is as irrelevant and stupid as saying that Hyrule Warriors lacks sports cars. It makes no sense. I DESPISE the current online gaming culture, and the people promoting that crap. It's revolting.



Cia commented on Hands On: Bewitching Bayonetta 2 Brings Action...:

Originally i thought that those Nintendo suits the heroine's able to wear were pretty silly... but since Nintendo fans generally buy only games with Nintendo mascots on them, perhaps this is a good tactic to increase sales.



Cia commented on Awesome New Hyrule Warriors Trailers Show Link...:

It may be a fun game, but it ain't gonna shine in reviews. The last Dynasty Warriors got like 68/100 in Metacritic, and this is made by the same guys as far as i know...
p.s. I'm gonna buy it neverthless though.
