Invisible to telescopic eye. Infinity, the star that would not die. All who dare to cross a course are swallowed by a fearsome force. Through the void, to be destroyed or is there something more? Atomized at the core. Walk through the astral door...to soar...

Cygnus commented on Club Nintendo Japan Rocking Five New 3DS LL Cr...:

I'd love to have those soundtrack CDs that club Nintendo JP has. Heck, I'd love to see ANYTHING on the club Nintendo NA that isn't the crap we have right now. Anything decent is always limited edition and gone by the time I learn of its existence.

Cygnus commented on GameStop: Wii U Marketing Strategy Has "Not Br...:

I can't speak for others, but I haven't bought a WiiU because of the insane lack of software.

Mature games: Mass Effect 3, Batman...oh wait I beat those before the system came out...

Blockbuster games: Article claims New Super Mario Bros, I say the only blockbuster title is ZombiiU.

Upcoming first party Titles: Pikmin 3 (YAY). A new 3D Mario game (when?), Smash Bros 4 (when?)

So I'd effectively buy a system for 4 games. One came out on launch, the other isn't out yet, two have almost nothing known about them. Nintendo, why didn't you learn from the 3DS launch about first party titles? Pikmin 3 and the 3D mario game should have been LAUNCH titles.

Cygnus commented on Reaction: Doom and Gloom Merchants on Wii U Be...:

Yes, the WiiU innovates, I can't deny that. I would have bought the console if there were game worth playing that took proper advantage of it. ZombiiU was a ton of fun to play but right now that's it. Why didn't they have a killer app that really showed something the console could do at launch? Pikmin 3? Mario Kart? Anything?

Look at past consoles and the highlights from their launch titles:
NES: Donkey Kong, Clu Clu Land, Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Super Mario Bros, Wild Gunman, Wrecking Crew
SNES: Super Mario World, F-Zero, Gradius III, SimCity
N64: Super Mario 64, Pilot Wings 64
Gamecube: Luigi's Mansion, Super Monkey Ball, Stars Wars Squadron 2: Rogue Leader
Wii: Wii Sports, Excite Truck, Legend of Zelda Twilight Princess

Each console had a major franchise/name in it like Mario or Zelda. Each had reasons to buy it. WiiU had the 5th NSMB title which did what exactly? Copy a SNES launch title as opposed to continue the trend of doing something relatively new. Marketing helped to make sales poor, but no self respecting person buys a computer without worthwhile software to run on it.

Truth be told I'm not surprised. There are only so many times you can release a console with nothing but things that resemble the killer apps from the last console which had nothing but games which resembled the last console.....

Protip: when you make a new console, you might want to invest a fair bit in a few original IPs to show that it really is a new console or at least make a massive change in an existing IP (ie Metroid Prime) to show that it is in fact a new console.

Looks great. Can't wait. Single card means no star tracking or unlockables though :(

One thing that peeved me about this video: "I wonder who Luigi is? Yeah who names themselves Luigi?"

Hurrr durr the game isn't out how many people could possible have it?

Cygnus commented on Harvest Moon Gets The Hollywood Reboot Treatment:

If they played this in a theatre during the previews, I'd believe it's real. I'm not sure if that should be a complement to the makers of the video or an insult to the current state of Hollywood movies. I'm going to say both. It was really well made.

Cygnus commented on Team Meat: We'd Work With Nintendo If Meat Boy...:

Team Meat have egos comparable to that of Axl Rose. They made 1 good game that got a lot of publicity and they think they're world class devs. There is a list the longer than Russia is wide with characters that would be more deserving and fit better into smash bros before meat boy makes the list.
