Csaw commented on Ninterview: Tom Bramwell On Nintendo and 15 Ye...:

@yuwarite yes because heaven forbid they try to get rid of some of the common stereotypes we see of women in games. And heaven forbid we get more representation of minority characters in games. Even Nintendo realizes how ridiculous it is, hence why a lot of their newer games are relying less on the kidnapped princess schtick and are actually releasing games with female protagonists (like Splatoon and Toadette in Captain Toad).

As for gamergate the only thing that has brought to light is how downright vile and cruel the gaming community can be. It's one of the few movements that makes me embarrassed to associate myself as a gamer. If everyone from conservative fox news to liberal Colbert is calling a hate group, then guess what, its a hate group.

Csaw commented on Ninterview: Tom Bramwell On Nintendo and 15 Ye...:

@yuwarite there's some of that cynicism Bramwell was talking about.
I don't get gamers. They say they want games to be considered an art form, and part of being an art form is being able to critique it. But anytime someone criticizes well liked games gamers throw a hissy fit and start dumb movements like gamer gate.

Csaw commented on Nintendo Secures Plenty of Nominations in The ...:

A lot of these categories feel really... strange. Still Nintendo does deserve to win a good chunk of those. Best action game, best racing game and best fighting game should all belong to their games. Maybe even developer of the year although I doubt they'll win that one.

Csaw commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:

While I feel bad for people like chuggaaconroy who actually puts effort into their lets plays, the vast majority of YouTube is filled with crappy playthroughs with no effort on the uploader's part and where instead of focusing on making a good playthrough the main focus is now saying the stupidest things that are going to attract you the most 12 year old viewers. Unfortunately as someone above mentioned the youtubers that make crap videos aren't really going to be affected by this decision.

Csaw commented on Popup Dungeon and Hover: Revolt of Gamers Both...:

@aaronsullivan there is no denying that the wii u is a weaker system, so no matter how hard they try they are absolutely going to have to "downgrade" it. Also I wouldn't say putting the Wii U stretch goal last is giving it a chance. It seems more like an afterthought. They could have at least put it before the stretch goal to double the size of the city

Csaw commented on Popup Dungeon and Hover: Revolt of Gamers Both...:

@arkady77 its their money. They're free to spend it however they want. I already funded hover but I agree that asking for $100,000 for a downgraded port is ridiculous, especially when you consider that one of the earlier stretch goals for the game is doubling the size of the city.
I'll fund it for now but if I think the wii u stretch goal isn't going to be met then I'll pull out.

Csaw commented on Ubisoft Expects Watch_Dogs To Be One Of The Bi...:

I feel like with all the delays and lackluster trailers a lot of the hype they had at e3 2012 kinda died down. I'm sure it'll sell well, though not as well as it could have if they'd released this a while back. Also they might as well just cancel the wiiu version.

It blows my mind how people are ok with violence/murder, stealing, opposite sex adultery, and references to other religions in games yet gay marriage is where people lose their minds. Seriously if you're ok with all these other things in games but are against gay marriage in games, you're nothing but a hypocrite.

Csaw commented on Review: Percy's Predicament (Wii U eShop):

Well that's depressing. I was looking forward to some of maestro interactive's other games they had announced but if they can't pull this game off I have little hope for their other games. Here's hoping they prove me wrong.

Csaw commented on Satoru Iwata Announces a "Quality of Life" Pla...:

@element187 I feel like the wii fit craze kind of died though. It was a fad that came and went. If Nintendo wants to enter this market they are gonna have to do something else that no other company is doing, or do it better then any other competitor out there. Here's hoping it works out for them.

@Nomad the problem with that is that theme parks are very expensive to build and maintain and once the novelty wore off and less people went it would just become a money guzzler for them (like so many other theme parks were to other businesses).

Csaw commented on Satoru Iwata Announces a "Quality of Life" Pla...:

So it seems like Nintendo is trying to expand into other markets besides games. I figured they would eventually do this, since the hardware market has such poor returns(Sony and Microsoft lost millions last gen and only survived because of their other markets). I just never guessed a video game company would be entering the fitness market. I just hope they know what they're doing and that this new product doesn't end up being a dud.

Csaw commented on No Game Content "Hostile to China" Will Make I...:

You guys can mock China all you want but we basically have the same thing instilled in the west, only it's the free market blocking these games instead of the government. What was the last game you played that didn't have pro American/European ideals. Military shooters always have you playing as the Americans, the bad guys almost always have a foreign accent, and the "good guys" are always marysues that would never do any wrong.

Csaw commented on Video: Here's Another Chance to Check Out Nint...:

@Yosher they didn't blow it out of proportion, everyone else did. All nintendo said was that they were going to reveal info on a previously announced game, they didn't hype it up beyond that. It was the internet that started throwing these crazy ideas that they would somehow show the next zelda or metroid, despite there being no evidence of it.

Csaw commented on Rumour: Potential Wii U Pokémon Title Could b...:

You guys are ignoring another possibility. The tradmark is named poken, which sounds like a mixture of pokemon and tekken. This might actually be a crossover between the two franchises. It wouldn't be the first time pokemon is crossed over with a completely random franchise and with how close nintendo is to namco who is helping them with smash this is a strong possibility.

Csaw commented on Nintendo Download: 18th July (North America):

Had to use a credit card to add funds since i was just 5 cents short for earthbound, all because i downloaded 30 cent donkey kong yesterday. Time to see what all the hype surrounding this game is about.

Csaw commented on 3DS and Animal Crossing: New Leaf Drive Strong...:

@rjejr i feel like if they added a second stick they may as well make a new system all together. Besides its not there's been a massive flood of games on the 3ds that would be vastly improved with a second circle pad.

@WhoBeThat Pikmin has it's audience but it's not a system seller. It'll probably do decently but I doubt very many people are gonna buy the console for it.

Csaw commented on New Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies Trailers Re...:

This is a bad move on capcom's part because if previous experiences have taught us anything, it's that M rated games sell like crap on nintendo systems. With this news and the going digital only I'm kinda wondering if capcom wants this to flop so they have an excuse not to localize anymore AA games.

Csaw commented on Miyamoto: GamePad's Touch Screen Primarily Use...:

On the 3ds having a second screen is great since the top screen is so small even putting a map on the bottom screen is useful. On the wiiu though i don't really feel like the second screen has really added anything

Csaw commented on File Sizes Revealed For 3DS eShop Retail Downl...:

Gamestop should really consider doing a retail for download exhcange. We can trade in our physical copy of the game and be given the download code for free or a reduced price. I'd like to trade in Mario kart and maybe 3d land to have them digital instead.

Csaw commented on Sorry Lost Planet Fans, EX Troopers Isn't Comi...:

@OlympicCho agreed. I can understand the resentment for megaman, given the lame excuse they gave, but realistically, does anyone think that an anime styled spin off shooter from a series that isn't very popular is going to sell well in the US or Europe. It's not.
Monster hunter is already confirmed to be coming to the west (which one I don't know but 1 of them), ace attorney is coming, so yes they do still pay attention to the west.

Csaw commented on Reaction: Nintendo's Steady Start in Retail Do...:

@MrWalkieTalkie I usually just use cases that hold multiple games instead of the boxes. I agree with Teejay I used to love collecting boxes but I have so many that they've started cluttering up my room and I've had to throw away a few. Also since I keep my 3ds in my pocket I don't have space to carry around extra cartridges so I usually end up only taking one game with me (which is annoying when I end up not wanting to play the game and instead want to play a game I don't have with me at the time). Overall retail and digital have their pros and their cons, but I plan on embracing digital.

Nintendo just take the dev kits away from these guys they're doing more harm then good. As far as I know UFO hasn't ever released a good game.

Csaw commented on Rumour: Medal of Honor: Warfighter Coming to 3DS:

@dobeymaster I don't remember hearing about a wiiu version, I don't think that's happening either.

This is really unlikely, especially since it comes from a source that has given false information before. I hope it's true, because I'd like the 3ds to have as much variety in games as possible, just like the ds, but this just screams false.

Csaw commented on Feature: How Nintendo Can Win E3:

I'm very excited for nintendo's e3 presentation so I really hope they don't dissapoint. I really want them to drive it hard and announce game after game for the wiiu and 3ds. At the moment I'm only interested in wiiu and I want e3 to make me begging for it.

Csaw commented on Wii U's First Launch Title Announced Already:

Wasn't that killer freaks game announced to be a WiiU launch title. Anyway this is cool and all but if nintendo really wants the WiiU to stand out they need to get new 3rd party exclusives on it and nit just ports of already realesed games.

Csaw commented on Talking Point: What If Nintendo Became a Third...:

Nintendo would be ruined if they became a third party developer. After sega dropped out the quality of all the games they made plummeted fast and the same would probably happen to nintendo. It's worse then that though because microsoft already said they would be interested in buying nintendo if they ever became 3rd party. They would mutilate them like they did to rare. God that would be a nightmare. I would probably be done with videogames if that ever happened

Csaw commented on Talking Point: The Great Nintendo 3DS Price Dr...:

Nintendo needs to do two things for the 3ds to succeed
1. Make sure there is a steady stream of games coming out for it. Not just first party but third party as well
2. End support for their ds. At the moment there are more games being realesed on the ds/dsi ware then on the 3ds. 2 handhelds from the same company just can't co-exist. Their biggest competition is against themselves
