DualWielding commented on Mario History: Super Mario 64 - 1996:

This was the game that pushed me away from Nintendo and convinced me not to buy a N64... from that point on I only bought Nintendo handhelds for pokemon, I wouldn't come back to Mario until they released New Super Mario Bros



DualWielding commented on Pokémon Brawler Pokkén Tournament Coming To ...:

this concept sucks since its basically just Tekken with Pokemon... it will be interesting if Pokemon mechanics were translated to a fighting game context and it was 3 v 3 like Marvel vs campcom things like elemental types were factored in... However, if I use a water move against a fire pokemon and it just do normal damage that just feels stupid and out of place



DualWielding commented on Mario History: Super Mario All-Stars - 1993:

it bothers me that they don't sell this 16 bit versions of the game... I understand they don't sell All stars because they make more money by selling the games individually but they could make it so at least when you buy smb1, for example, you get both the 8 bit and 16 bit versions

there's a a bias against japanese game... sexism comes in many forms, the japanese variety of sexism is that female characters are overly sexualized. However, japanese games have lots of female characters and they tend to have well defined personalities and play big roles in the story. The western version of sexism is that there are no female characters in the games and the few that there are poorly written or too generic in personality...

I think the western version of sexism is worse. However, games like Senran Kagura take all the backlash



DualWielding commented on The Famicom is 32 Years Old Today:

weird question... where did you plug the zapper in the original famicom... In my country what we had was a famicom knock off called the family which had player one controller hardwired like a famicom but controller 2 could be umplugged and replaced with the zapper... so I'm wondering how did it work on the real famicom were both controllers were hard wired

yah I'm o.k with an underpowered console as long as it is cheap... $199.99 is the most I'm willing to pay with an underpowered console that only plays Nintendo first party games... However, unlike the Wii $199.99 has to be the real price and it should have not hidden costs. It also has to has a default controller I want to use as having to pay extra for a controller that does not suck as it happened with the Wii and Wii U was very alienating.

it's funny to see how fanboys mind works, up until before E3 you would be flamed for stating that the idea that the Wii U was done and Nintendo was going to move all efforts to its next console... Now after its obvious that's what they are doing most fanboys seem to agree is the best thing to do



DualWielding commented on Reggie Has Been Pushing For Binding Of Isaac T...:

Another third party planning on bringing a game to Wii U long after everyone who was interested has played it on a different console... Third parties always screw Nintendo and then complain when their games fail to sell in a Nintendo system...

Oh wait...



DualWielding commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

weren't the Nintendo fans the ones that Kickstarted this thing? you have to feel really bad by them... but again anyone who really expected a third party AAA title not related to Lego or Sklyanders to make it to the Wii U in 2015 was being unrealistic



DualWielding commented on Talking Point: The Fragility of Buying Downloa...:

Yah the article couldn't even mention that out of traders than digital goods Nintendo is the worse.... other traders at least allow you to restore your software on a different system without having to beg a customer service person for it



DualWielding commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

no sorry I do not feel is my job to worry about developers' economic well being... I only buy games when I feel I'm getting value for my money... that's my main problem with Nintendo they rarely put first party games on sale and I don't really fell any game is worth $60.00.... if anything, I think the E-shop has three problems; Games being tied to hardware, region lock and yes.... overpriced games and lack of major sales
