ColdingLight commented on Year of Luigi Gets Official Send-Off from Shig...:

What was the point in continuing the Year of Luigi in 2014 if they didn't release anymore Luigi themed video games? "Sigh' I kinda thought they'd pull a NES Remix and announce a new Luigi game before March 18... But I guess not.



ColdingLight commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

I cannot believe some of you are criticizing Ubisoft... If there is one third party company who gave the Wii U an honest to god shot it's them. You all need to understand that a company needs to make a profit at the end of the day, and currently the Wii U is not a profitable system. Ubisoft has put many great games on the Wii U and when they decide to pull the plug because it's not making money you guys criticize them? How about pat them on the back for giving it a try and say You know what Ubisoft? You gave it an honest to god shot and thank you for it Not Oh, if it isn't coming out on Wii U then I'm not buying it at all Here's a wild idea on this site, how about cirticize the WIi U and Nintendo for all of it's massive problems. Biggest one arguably being the continuing lack of third party support. Oh wait, that would mean criticizing your favorite company/console and you simply cannot do that for whatever reason. 'Sigh'



ColdingLight commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

Why are alot of you prasing Iwata? This terrible news. I think he's being completely unfair on the 3ds front. The damned console dominated Japan and has been the most sold console in the US and EU territories for months and it still under preformed? I'm sorry, but that's when you know someones expectations are way to damn high. Another blow to the gut is that there won't be any Shake up in management? And he's not stepping down in the future?...This is awful dude. And then some devine miracle happens and he somehow manages to sell the Wii U at a profit and you guys will give him credit for rectifying his mistakes... He should not be givin credits for fixing his mistakes. He should be giving credit for avoiding mistakes. Which he has failed to do. "Sigh" I see another grim year for Nintendo...



ColdingLight commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

@FullbringIchigo I don't completely understand what you're saying but I think I understand it enough. Anyway, I think if Nintendo started paying 3rd party devs money to port their games to the Wii U many (If not all) other devs will have the mindset of "Oh hey! Nintendo is giving out money just so they can have games on their console. Lets hold back our games until Nintendo approaches us and gives us some money so we won't really have to gamble with the Wii U" And while at this point this is probably the best option for NIntendo if they want any kind of 3rd party support on the Wii U, I also believe that isn't something they can keep swept under the rug.

Its like if you start feeding a pigeon, you feed one of them, they'll all want some........ What a weird analogy...



ColdingLight commented on Nintendo Confirms Major Reductions In Sales an...:

Now, wait a minute... Satoru Iwata said that his Wii U console under preformed in the US and EU but it didn't under preform in Japan? I mean, granted there were some spikes in the region but the sales were still pretty abysmal... You know... Lately I've been getting this strange vibe that Nintendo doesn't really seem to care about western consumers anymore. I say that because when I look at the game Hyrule Warriors (Which is Dynasty Warriors + Zelda characters) it just seems like it will only appeal to japanese consumers. (They're other games but I'm only going to use this one as an example.) It also doesn't help that its been on record that Satoru Iwata has criticized NOA and NOE for "not selling their console right" Now, I'm not saying Nintendo should make some first person shooter to appeal to everyone and their mothers, but what I am saying is Nintendo is a global company and they should consider western consumers a bit more then now.

Now someone please prove me wrong because I don't want to have this terrible mindset. Sigh



ColdingLight commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated for January:

Ok. Apparently, NintendoLife made a review of the game but I don't really care for there opinion. I'd rather read about it from other bigger sites who have more experience... but there is none. -_- how weird...



ColdingLight commented on Zelda Unveiled as New Smash Bros. Challenger:

Noooooooo... What the Hell is this?!....Ughhh >< I was so certain that we would get the Skyward Sword Zelda model and she could transform in to Tetra, but were getting the Twilight Princess Zelda model again???...Oh come on Sakurai... I mean, does it not make sense to have the most recent main stream Zelda in SSB4? AKA Skyward Sword Zelda? I mean, it was on the Wii. I know people are going to say to me that Twilight Princess was also on the Wii. Yes, but that was a lazy mirrored port. -- It was more intended for the Gamecube and not the Wii.... "Sigh'...I'm starting to fear for the game... I mean, it has failed to WOW me at all... I mean, Wii Fit Trainer and Rosalina/Luma were very pleasant surprises but no true wows... Very concerning...



ColdingLight commented on Pokémon X & Y Update Mandatory for Online Pla...:

Well about time they fixed this. They should have forseen that cheaters would find a way to break the online play. 'Sigh' Well, atleast they fixed it.

I don't remember if it was 30 seconds but did they increase the time limit on Rating battles?



ColdingLight commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

I'm... Kinda confused to what's going on here... I read the whole article and people are upset about some woman's comments? I'm not trying to be a troll I honestly don't understand why people are getting upset at Comcept... Can someone please explain this to me?



ColdingLight commented on Soapbox: Nintendo's Appearance at VGX Underwhe...:

The part that irked me the most is when Reggie said You guys are never satisfied! Well Reggie, I would like you to look at every other video game at VGX. A good majority of them (If not all.) are not coming to the Wii U... All you gave us was a new character announcement for Donkey Kong and a release date for that game which was leaked online about a week ago... OF COURSE PEOPLE AREN'T SATISFIED! Not to mention they advertised this like it was the second coming of Jesus Christ. Now, if they had announced a new playable character for SSB4 and a release date of MK8 then I (And I think many others) wouldn't be complaining. I admit I didn't watch the entire VGX. I only watched the Nintendo part of it. I'm sorry, but I refuse to sit down and watch what was 3 hours of apparent crap. I could do something much more productive like learn a foreign language... Or watch paint dry...



ColdingLight commented on Reggie Fils-Aime: Petitions Don't Affect Ninte...:

Oh, screw you Reggie. To me, this is such a middle finger. I mean, What does this say to fans? To me, it says "Oh, you guys have no say in what we should do." Now, to be fair, I'm not saying listen to every single thing fans say. Because some fans can be a bit mindless at times... But saying these (Very correct) fan petitions have no real affect on Nintendo's decisions, I mean... what does that say to the people running and signing these petitions? It just seems like there is no hope for Operation Moonfall/Zero/etc. And the part that irks me the most is this is a very Capcom thing to say. It's like, what do you gain by saying something like this? Now, again to be fair, I understand his point of view. 100,000 signatures doesn't mean 100,000 sales. And at the end of the day, a company needs to make a profit in order to stay alive. But the ironic part of that statement, is there are times you localize games that are crap. Like Pokemon Rumble Blast that I'm sure didn't give you the numbers you wanted. And then there are games that will likely make a profit like Xenoblade and a Majora's Mask remake. Again, I know I'm kicking a dead horse, but this statement doesnt gain him anything. If anything, it just hurts his credibility even more. 'Sigh'

Ok, I kinda blitz through writing this, so if there are any errors than I'm sorry, and sorry about the swears though I do feel it was necessary.

(Disclaimer: I don't hate Pokemon Ok? I'm currently playing the Hades out of Pokemon Y and I feel it's the greatest Pokemon game since the GB/GBC era, It's that Loveydoveying good! And I've all but finished White 2.)

Our rules do not allow the use of profanity. -Lz



ColdingLight commented on Video: Nintendo Wii Sports Club Trailer Goes F...:

@BulbasaurusRex Oh god...I guess I missed that...Doesn't that make it even more unappealing? I say that because MotionPlus is still kinda obscure and not very well known. Or atleast to casual gamers it isn't....Which is the targeted demographic for this game...'Sigh'...Nintendo...You're getting pressed by both ends...

Also, the Swordplaying game in Wii Sports Resort was pretty kickdonkey.
Please watch the profanity — TBD



ColdingLight commented on Video: This Is Why CoD: Ghosts Is Best on Wii U:

@CasuallyDressed Yes, the control scheme is a gimmick. You point the Wiimote at the TV and you reload your gun by shaking the Nunchuck. I, and I think the majority of people would consider that a "gimmick"

If I apparently don't know the meaning of a word, why don't you explain it to me instead of telling me I don't know what it means?

Or perhaps you ironically don't know the meaning of the word "Gimmick"

Next time, think before you write.
