DarkKirby commented on Masahiro Sakurai Outlines the Challenges of De...:

even if it's now also more active in issuing software updates.

Well, releasing patches to fix not literally game breaking problems almost never is better than actually never!

Nintendo is still by far the absolute worst major console company when it comes to after market support. No, pay DLC or DLC developed during the main game development is not "after market support".



DarkKirby commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:


The argument that it's okay to sexualize men but not women because all men want to be be handsome musclemen but not all women want to be beautiful and fit has been done to death, and is ridiculous.

No person in their right mind, regardless of sex, would choose to be be ugly, fat, and stupid, but be accepted for it, rather than just be born with fantastic genes that made you good looking, fit, and smart. Reality, MOST people are not good looking, fit, and smart, you're rather lucky if you excel in just one of these categories, and many excel in none. That's life. Men are not okay with men being sexualized because they "want to be that way", they are just indifferent about it. I'd rather any character be aesthetically pleasing than be accurate to most of the real human population.

Equality is a two way street. If what you're asking for is the sexes to be treated differently, to reach what you personally consider an ideal society, that's not equality.



DarkKirby commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:


They did try to build her character. Other M.

When she wasn't portrayed as a stoic neo feminist amazon that "don't need no man" people got upset. (Exaggeration of course but you get the idea.)

Whether you agree with her Other M representation or not, I'm saddened that the backlash received for it likely means Nintendo will be afraid to step away from the silent emotionless character formula they've embraced for so long.



DarkKirby commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

I feel like this is an unwise time to post this article after the Zoe Quinn incident and as a result when gaming journalism is being accused of promoting SJW topics, sexism topics, and generally or practically telling gamers how they should feel about certain topics, often as click bait, rather than just reporting about games.

Even if you really do believe in this issue, which many gaming media outlets like Kotaku, who is a front runner in these kinds of articles, clearly do not.



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

Cut the PR manure Ubisoft and just say that you've given up on the Wii U but already ported Watch Dogs (if you even release that), but don't plan to port any other games because you see it as too much of a financial risk.

I fully understand not porting to the Wii U as a business decision and can't fault them for that but I don't understand why everybody doesn't feel patronized when companies and other public figures and media outlets act as if their consumer/reader base are idiotic kids who are easily fooled.

I hope there aren't that many soft headed people who eat this crap up.



DarkKirby commented on The First 4 Figures Sword Kirby is Cute But Co...:


I like Kirby but not this much. I'll stick to my hoard (of 4) Kirby plushes.
Given, this thing is 16 inches high so that why it's $200 plus, but Kirby in general is a simple design which I don't think justifies this cost compared to anime figures with much higher detail of similar cost.



DarkKirby commented on Interview: The Pokémon Company International'...:


J.C. Smith, the Director of Consumer Marketing for the Pokémon Company International
Mega Charizard is being pushed WAY too hard. Give some other Megas the spotlight.

Get an official Gardevoir plush made, a good high quality one (the key chain one is super low quality that doesn't count).



DarkKirby commented on Beautiful Limited Edition Super Smash Bros. 3D...:

DarkKirby #125
There are too many characters on there I don't like/care about over ones I do like.

No deal.
Your saying that, my reasoning of, because of there are not being enough characters I like on it over the ones I don't care about on the 3DS, I won't buy it, is flawed?

Or that I have different preferences than you being flawed reasoning?




DarkKirby commented on Review: Mega Man Battle Network (Wii U eShop /...:

The original Battle Network was practically an experiment. The online world was so simple in appearance and mapless that I got lost all the time. The game was still above average overall though.

BN2 and BN3 were AWESOME.

BN4 and BN5 were trash.

Battle Network 6 was above average again.



DarkKirby commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ambitious amiibo Pla...:

I really, really, really, don't care about the NFC interaction. As far as I can tell, it's just DLC that you have to go to the store to actually buy, and the target audience seems to be gullible little kids.

I'd rather Nintendo license out the rights to good figure companies to make high quality figures of Nintendo characters than make these below average small figures for the NFC gimmick.



DarkKirby commented on Mii Mascot Outfits Shown Off for Super Smash B...:

"Teasing" Are there people who really think Meta Knight, Sakurai's own character, was going to be cut?

It's like when people were celebrating Captain Falcon's return as if he had a chance of being cut.

As much as I like Kirby characters I can only hope Meta Knight has been nerfed.



DarkKirby commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

It literally makes financial sense for publishers to not release games on the Wii U, especially physical copies. Developers feeling obligated to use the GamePad screen doesn't make the situation much better. I would make an argument about it being worth at least porting the game for a digital release, but Nintendo's console locked digital purchase system is trash.



DarkKirby commented on CoroCoro Magazine Reveals Three Mega Evolution...:

Pretty sure almost nobody saw Mega Lopunny coming. I'm not upset about it through, as some others unreasonably are.

Mega Salamance looks OP has heck.

I fear Mega Altaria with Dragon Dance will make already barely OU Mega Gardevoir irrelevant unless Gardevoir gets the much needed Quiver Dance.



DarkKirby commented on Super Smash Bros. For 3DS To Feature More Trop...:

Oh man Trophy collecting! That's why I loved Br Zzzzzz...

Collecting Trophies was an okay thing to do on the side but I hope they didn't spend too much time on it. "Catching" enemies in Subspace was an interesting challenge but everything else was straight up luck based grinding.
