Wow. No local tourneys? No proper trees in custom tourneys? Looks like this tourney update was definitely not worth the wait.

Guess we'll be sticking to pen-and-paper for all our tourneys. But hey, that's what we've been doing since Smash 64.



Dr_Corndog commented on Dark Pit and Palutena amiibo Are Retailer Excl...:

Retailer exclusives aren't nearly as bad a thing as people make them out to be. You think about how many people would want Dark Pit or Palutena compared to, say, Pikachu and Link, and you realize they just aren't going to sell as many. The retailers realize the same thing, which is why if every store could order these exclusive figures, then none of them would, for fear of having unsold stock left on the shelves.

Of course, that argument is moot if Nintendo can't meet demand in the first place. But then you have an entirely different problem.

@Tender_Cutlet That bothered me about the first movie, to be honest. In particular, Sonic's relative prominence was a bit of a nitpick. Yes, I know he's been in several arcade games, but no one thinks of him as an arcade hero. And has he had any starring roll in an arcade game since his Adventure redesign?



Dr_Corndog commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

@Jayvir Some people think that having a more powerful console will draw the third parties back in, but that's false. There's still the (largely substantiated) perception that only Nintendo games sell on Nintendo consoles. And there's the fact that Microsoft has established XBox as the brand for the casual, shooter-and-sports-loving masses, at least in America.



Dr_Corndog commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

Good. If I'm going to pay for a dedicated console so as to have access to Nintendo games, I don't want it to be expensive. And if I want power, I can just upgrade my PC--not that it needs an upgrade to beat out any console, currently.



Dr_Corndog commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (...:

@Tsurii It still plays wonderfully, though. I did play it back in 1998, I will admit, but only through the first three dungeons. I didn't actually complete it until after beating Wind Waker, myself. And though it has aged in some respects, none of them are a significant detriment to the great game that's still there.



Dr_Corndog commented on Nintendo NX Will Avoid The Launch Issues Which...:

Will it have a strong launch lineup? In particular, will it launch with that one must-have first-party title that sells systems? Because, believe it or not, Nintendo hasn't made it a point to launch a system with that kind of game since rhe Nintendo 64.



Dr_Corndog commented on Monolith Soft Open To Helping Get Zelda Wii U ...:

@EllenJMiller I only played the second one. I thought the battle system had real potential, but it ended up being a bit one-note since 90% of the item cards were completely useless. For that matter, there were a lot of things about the game that had great potential but lacked a bit in execution. So, I'd be up for a third game that really capitalizes on what was set down by the first two.
