DiscoGentleman commented on First Impressions: Learning to Fly With Rodea ...:

Hoping there's a demo in eShop for it. I probably won't get it, as the gameplay doesn't look too fun to me, but something about the charm still draws me in. Shame they didn't spend more time on the graphics in the switch to Wii U. I feel like a lot of the environments could have benefited from this while flying. It had the opportunity in it's palm to be breathtaking, considering how much you fly.

Also, those English voices are terrible. This is one of those games where their interactions are way too anime-esque, and wouldn't translate well into western culture without a rehaul of the cutscenes.

DiscoGentleman commented on Nintendo NX Might Be The First Social VR Platf...:

Don't really see any signs from Nintendo pointing to this, so this analyst is kinda... Off the money, IMO.
I did like his idea about using smartphone to make it social, but did he just pull that idea out of his hat? Or is that Actually based on something? Really, the whole opinion sounds like it was spouted by some neckbeard diehard Nintendo fanboy.

DiscoGentleman commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

I see a bunch of self-unaware little kids posting way too personal stuff on there. It's what keeps me from using it, the overwhelming amount of "WII U CHAT??" "WILL YOU BE MY BOYFRIEND?" "MY FRIEND TOLD ME NINTENDO DID BLAHBLAHBLAH AND NOW THERES A NEW METROID COMING OUT FOR WII U IS IT TRUE??" "HOW MUCH IS THIS GAME IN THE ESHOP? MY MOM WON'T LET ME BUY IT IF I DON'T KNOW THE PRICE."
That stuff is inevitable to a degree, but the redesign will help shift away from that, and focus on games, like it should be.

Does anyone remember Miiverse back during the launch? It was amazing. People posting hints and helping each other out. Made a lot of nice Miiverse friends at that time, because it was mostly the 20-30 somethings who bought the console day one.
As more kids began to get the system, and especially after the 3DS integration, it really went downhill. Now I don't use it too much.
But I can see myself using it more after the redesign, depending on how it all plays out. I'm sure they'll work out the kinks.

I don't really understand all the hate for the redesign.

I like the redesign because it's asserting Miiverse as a social network, with Nintendo games as the basis.
If you want to use a social network to primarily discuss personal stuff, get a FB or whatever else people use.
I wanna use Miiverse to talk about games and Nintendo stuff. So, this redesign is welcome.

GOD THESE ARE SO DAMN CUTE. Kirby & Link in particular.
I have to really, really resist getting any figures. Because really... they just sit there and take up space, and I hate clutter. There're not for me, despite this ridiculous calling that I have at the moment.

DiscoGentleman commented on Devil's Third is Being Published by Nintendo o...:

@Genesaur iirc Nintendo co-owns the IP rights for that reason. So, hopefully Nintendo will see money from the PC version, since we can all make a good guess that the Wii U version isn't gonna sell much.

I think this whole PC release is about recouping losses by both parties, and probably some politics between the two (dare I say, frustration with each other due to the final product? Only speculation at this point).

DiscoGentleman commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

@gussie Itagaki, by Japanese sociocultural standards, is not a humble dude.
But I'm with you that NLife spoke in hyperbole with that very strongly worded sentence:

"Not the terrible, outdated game design, atrocious frame-rate, PS2-level visuals or dull, uninspiring boss battles - but the fact that professional journalists who have played thousands of games previously simply aren't good enough to match Devil's Third."

Aaand my two cents: I was probably going to get the game around release, but judging by the previews it doesn't look like much fun. I will probably pick it up on bargain.

@Hero-of-WiiU I would be more annoyed if NLife were giving this game a pass, judging from previews and other EU'ers reactions.
In my opinion, NLife has been pretty generous in reviews of games for the Wii U from time to time, so it's nice to see them saying, "Hey, this poorly made game, is unfortunately poorly made."

DiscoGentleman commented on Nintendo Cancels Camp Miiverse in Honour of Sa...:

I think it's a little unnecessary for them to cancel this event unless Iwata-san's death is affecting internal process, or rather, resources are being drawn to other areas of the company for the time being.

If they're just cancelling it "out of respect", I don't think it's necessary. Surely Iwata-san would want gamers to keep on gaming.

DiscoGentleman commented on Devil's Third Will Be Released In North Americ...:

@FlaygletheBagel Ain't nobody here saying negative criticism is bad. It is a good thing and very necessary for all the reasons you mentioned, and more.
Also "finally" getting critiqued? Nintendo's a company, and so they are always getting critiqued. Even in their game consoles, I can't think of any generation in which their business decisions were not heavily questioned publicly to some degree.
More of what I see here, is people jumping to conclusions, not knowing how business works at all, and speaking in mega-hyperbole.

Here's my negative criticism which I think is a sane one: whatever politics or delays may be afoot with this game's release, Nintendo is doing itself damage by not making a statement on this ASAP. Surely this is not helping any future endeavors with 3rd parties.
Also, if you've happened by any of my comments, I accuse Nintendo of cronyism fairly often when I see it.

If you're not seeing people jumping to bombastic conclusions as less-than-sane thinking, you might not understand this whole comment anyway...

DiscoGentleman commented on Splatfest Details Are Confirmed for 18th July ...:

@Ninstarkof Not more than the average person. It's the feeling of going up and down that I can't handle. Kind of like when you're driving and you somewhat suddenly go down a steep hill. It's an awful feeling, and I stop breathing.
I also get this feeling on waterslides, sometimes... so, really, this is a terrible Splatfest for me :D

Sleeping/napping can be soooooo pleasurable! (Too bad for me, since I don't sleep well)
The same thing of maintaining health can also be said for eating, IMO. Though, eating is definitely beat of the two- I love cooking and eating sooo much.

But, I'm a yank, so I'll be choosing waterslides. I hate rollercoasters.

@FLUX_CAPACITOR "It pains me to admit it, but the comments on this site have become more ridiculous than those on mynintendonews. I used to enjoy reading the comments on this site because I believed that the readers here were more intelligent, or at least more rational, than they were on sites like ign. But now, I only scroll down to the bottom of these nintendolife articles out of sheer morbid curiosity. It really is a shame that this place has become flooded with blatant trolls and bipolar crybabies."

I found a sane person!

DiscoGentleman commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

Most hilarious thing is that everyone whining here is acting like they would've bought the game.

Also, if the sources are correct, Nintendo chose not to publish the game because of quality standards. As a publisher, Nintendo is right about that. Why would they want their name on it?

The reason Unseen64 is such a respected site and gets so much linkage is because unlike many other sites on the web, they only post stuff they have faith in. Like I said, the site has been proven right time and time again, and luck has absolutely nothing to do with it.
Well said, @Damo .

DiscoGentleman commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

I'm all for leaks on past games, especially ones we'll never see, like Metroid Dread or Project HAMMER, but as for ones that are still on their way- that's where I draw my moral line.

@Damo That source at NoA can certainly be fired or sued for leaking details like they have been to Unseen64. Feel bad for the team mates that he/she is probably putting the heat on, indirectly, due to the leaks.
