DiSTANToblivion commented on Weirdness: Should Rap Star Iggy Azalea Ever Go...:

There's a lot of great music now days but people are too lazy to find it, so they just settle for the radio. I personally love listening to music, not the music industry. Great music is out there if you look for it and don't settle for what you're handed in packages designed to sell you the latest trend.

EDIT: Oh and there's also a big difference between "celebrity" and musician. Most radio hits are created by numerous producers in order to market a celebrity.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

The last truly great Mario party game for me was MP5. I loved the capsule throwing mechanic, the boards and the minigames. I also liked MP8 for it's unique boards that all had a different gameplay theme. Since this has gameplay similar to MP9 with the mini stars and everyone travelling together I think I'll give this a miss. I really wish they would return to the traditional formula.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Super Smash Bros. Pros Explain Competitive The...:

While this play style is highly impressive, it bores me seeing the same characters always being used. I'd love to see good competitive Ganondorf or even Charizard plays. It's all well and good sticking to the quickest characters and all but sometimes the competitive scene feels incredibly elitist. I've read numerous conversations about certain characters being dismissed outright without even getting a chance, it's pretty annoying to me when people get criticism from a pro player just because they like to play as a heavy hitter.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Guide: New Nintendo 3DS - Everything We Know S...:

I'm still happy with my original launch 3DS. If Nintendo starts only making 'new 3DS' exclusive titles, ignoring the original 3DS then I'll be pretty annoyed. This is already confusing a lot of people that don't really follow gaming closely so I'm thinking this is going to be another PR nightmare. What's with Nintendo and their nonsensical naming of hardware? Geez...



DiSTANToblivion commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

This game seriously needed new courses and it looks like this DLC will solve that problem. Wario's Goldmine was an awesome track. Love the new karts and characters as well but I'll admit it feels kind of odd having non Mario related content here, even if it is extra. It's not Smash Bros., it's 'Mario' Kart.

I'm kind of thinking this is to ease everyone into the idea of Amiibo with the possibility of including multiple characters and content from various franchises. I feel like Nintendo are creating and fully embracing an idea of a complete Nintendo universe where everything co-exists together. Look at other crossovers lately that we wouldn't ever think we'd see; things like Hyrule Warriors and Pokken Fighters. If it's the case of everything being put together as one cohesive whole then I don't have a problem with it, in fact I find it really cool.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Play: It's The Second Nintendo Life Community ...:

I just rage quit. No joke. I think i was in the the top 3 in about 4 races out of about 16, I came 1st once. As soon as you drop to about 5th position you get hammered by everyone and everything. I've come to the conclusion that positions 1-4 are relatively safe, positions 5-10 are warzones and positions 11 and 12 have no hope of breaking the top 4 without a lot of luck. I hit numerous players with my star powerup and they dudn't lose any momentum, still managing to keep up their speed regardless of being hit. Argh... rant over.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

If this was in terms of over-rated Zelda games I'd say Twilight Princess. Pacing is awful (in regards to useless items being a reward for long tedious tasks, such as bug collecting or items being rewarded to you at a later stage when you don't even need it), the items are mostly one time uses for a particular dungeon with a few odd moments where they are useful for exploration, the difficulty is far too easy and the dungeon design was incredibly boring.

I loved the story in Skyward Sword but hated the linear design, but at least the dungeons were great in that game.

For me I'd say that it's very close between Majora's Mask and A Link Between Worlds. Majora's Mask for the mature themes and the overall atmosphere in the game, plus tackling side quests while keeping watch over times of the day etc. Dungeon design in that game though... not too good (except Stone Tower). A Link Between Worlds for it's open explorative world.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Hyrule Warriors Downloadable Costume Sets Feat...:

I was interested in this game until all the over-representation of Twilight Princess happened, now I really couldn't care less. Twilight Princess was one of my least favourite Zelda games and it's so disappointing that it's all they seem to be focusing on.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

@MaverickHunterX Said it perfectly. This is the best way to get right to the point, cutting through all the boring financial garbage at a press conference. Why should just be caring about the games. The people on this site have really turned me off coming here of late, as with other gaming related sites. Gamers have been becoming incredibly elitist lately. Everyone seems to take gaming so seriously, as if they have shares in a company. Games are fun and should be the most important part of gaming. I thought that should have been obvious.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Nintendo Direct: Trailers Round-Up:

People - "We want games!"
Nintendo - shows games
People - "We want different games, not those ones!"
Nintendo - shows different games, ones people want
People - "We don't want those games now!"
Nintendo - doesn't show anything
People - "WE WANT GAMES!"



DiSTANToblivion commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

It's simple, I will not purchase any other third party titles on Wii U because of the non-existent support. Here in Australia we still don't have the Injustice DLC and I have yet to go back to the game. The only decent third party release I own is Rayman Legends.

I bought my Wii U for first party titles and Indie eShop releases, so I personally don't have an issue with third party companies not seeing Nintendo as being profitable for them.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Sonic Lost World Sales Reached 640,000 in 2013:

I felt the demo for the Wii U version was pretty weak. I didn't get the impression I'd have any fun playing through the whole game so I think the sales are about right. The Wonderful 101 on the other hand, VERY underrated game that many negative reviews failed to even properly understand. It's a pity W101 has sold pretty poorly.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Nintendo Scoops Two Awards at D.I.C.E:

The Last Of Us truly deserves the praise it recieves in my opinion. It's so much more than a game, it's an experience. As much as I am a Nintendo fan, even I can see that the two previous "Game Of The Year" awards rightfully went to the correct choices (The Last Of Us and Journey). Just thought I'd add my two cents to all the bitterness here.

EDIT: Besides, it's not like awards shows mean anything. Everyone has the capacity to agree or disagree with whatever they want, no imaginary 'award' for bragging rights will change that. That's why opinions are just so much fun... hahaha.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Nintendo States There Are "No Plans" to Bring ...:

After looking up Mario related games on Android Mobile (not to buy, I really dislike mobile 'gaming') I've come to the assumption that people playing mobile games really are clueless.

Review after review of Nintendo games 'Tips and Tricks', 'Walkthroughs' etc. resulted in the same 1 star complaints...

"Not a game!" / "Where is game?" / "Terrible app, it doesn't even have the game!"




DiSTANToblivion commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Image & Form:

It's one of the only games in recent memory that made me want to play it straight after I had finished. I did too, three times in a row. I want that elusive all gold star ranking but cannot seem to get past a silver for time. This game is amazing for speedrunning as well.

Now I wait patiently for the sequel. I REALLY want that sequel.



DiSTANToblivion commented on Analysts Weigh In With Estimates for Wii U Fis...:

I like my Wii U, no knowledge of how much they make or don't make will change that. Since when did we all become so concerned with numbers and figures? Remember the time when we all just enjoyed playing games and didn't let any of this news become relevant to us gamers? This should be more important to companies etc. Why should we even care if we're are still just having a good time playing games?



DiSTANToblivion commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants the Wii U Zelda's Hyrule to ...:

I think they were onto something good with the Skyward Sword desert time travel. The past and present encapsulated together working hand in hand. You could even be more experimental by creating an alternate universe where Link isn't the only hero saving Hyrule. Or maybe even realize Dark Link as an alternate Link, in this other world Ganondorf is the hero. It's important to make both realms co-exist together. How about getting even crazier and setting some story in modern day times? Too weird?



DiSTANToblivion commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd October (North America):

Guess I must be easy to please because I think I've still got plenty to play on Wii U. Some games I've finished, but since the replay value is good I'll still be enjoying them... W101, Pikmin 3 and NSLU; not to mention the downloadable titles I still have and Wind Waker HD plus Sonic Lost World too.



DiSTANToblivion commented on UK Boy Band Union J Sign Up To Promote Pokémo...:

They're not a band, they're a group, and just like One Direction they are a terrible group at best. Well I guess they make money through being a generic trend, so they achieve that goal. As long as the corporate music industry can profit we can't really do much about it besides turn off the radio and TV and actually listen to something decent.
