edhe commented on Tekken 7 Revealed At Evo 2014, Platforms Uncon...:

I've bought Tekken Tag Tournament 2 on the WiiU within the last month (and at a severe discount), and to be honest, it's all the Tekken I'll need for years to come.

Isn't it regarded as a pretty comprehensive version? I haven't been following Tekken over the years, but there's loads of characters, unlockables and replay value.

edhe commented on Nintendo Supported Our Vision The Most, Says D...:

@Shambo Now I feel silly. I own both No More Heroes games, but I haven't personally played Madworld and Eternal Darkness.

Maybe it's the first instance of the MF bomb. Prove me wrong, everybody...

As for the game itself, I hadn't heard anything about it prior to the E3 reveal (which I couldn't see first hand). It's telling that it was previously an Xbox 360/PS3 game - Nintendo would never have been able to snag a game like that if if was heading for the Xbox One or PS4 - Sony or Microsoft wouldn't have let a game go like that.

More for us then, I'll look out for it, but like I said, having not followed the other consoles last generation, I knew very nothing about the game. It looks violent.

edhe commented on Senran Kagura 2 Website Updates With New Gamep...:

That last paragraph was slick. I especially loved how it has a hyperlink to a story on another of ONM's hysterical articles against Senran Kagura,

It was completely unnecessary, and can only have been included to piggyback on the page hits similar articles have received on the topic. I guess you felt it would just be too shameful to do a straight article on another ONM dope telling us all how perverted we all are for accepting this game on the 3DS.

Or maybe you missed the bus.

I look forward to the community being needlessly rocked to its core as we all accuse each other of being paedophiles and freedom hating communists.

edhe commented on Satoru Iwata Believes Nintendo Can Establish a...:

I do worry that with a second business alongside the videogame one, and with the difficulties Nintendo are currently having with the WiiU, that Nintendo may be more inclined to sell off the console arm, were this new venture to prove successful.

Bill Gates has been quoted as saying he would fully support the spinning off of the Xbox brand, if the current head deemed it neccesary, and I'd hate this to happen to Nintendo.

On the other hand, if Nintendo stick to videogames, they live and die by their fortunes in that business. It's a tough one, but I'd have to say, with how they're struggling, it might be for the best if Nintendo attempt to diversify. Hopefully, it'll pay off.

edhe commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

The way I see it, if it wasn't in (or supposed to be in) the Japanese version, no-one can complain about it not being in the Western release. What, are Nintendo supposed to rewrite the code to include a gay option? Are Nintendo suddenly "problematic" for not including the gay option in the game?

With that being said, of all the Nintendo games released in recent years, this was the one that really 'ought to have had the gay option in it. You are playing with your own personal avatar, and if you as a male don't personally find women sexually attractive, then I can understand if the person would feel a bit miffed about it - enough to want to pass up on the game.

By the same token, a devout Christian would be well within their rights to pass up the game if it included themes they didn't agree with.

edhe commented on Nintendo Shows Off Upcoming Golden Sun and F-Z...:

I remember owning one of the Golden Sun games. I think there was a feature that allowed you to import your progress into the second one via a password. I probably owned the second one in that case.

I look forward to trying Golden Sun, and I'm sure they'll probably release the sequel too.

@PvtOttobot

It was inspired in part by Earthbound, yes.

Then again, if Nintendo is unwilling to give us a genuine follow-up in the Mother series (let alone localise the ones already available in Japan), I say we should take what we can get.

@Anguspuss As long as Atlus is involved, we can probably expect to wait a year.

edhe commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Upcoming Game Boy ...:

I'll definitely be picking up the games I don't already own on 3DS - namely Golden Sun (I didn't know Nintendo were planning to release it in this first wave), Advance Wars and Mario & Luigi - Superstar Saga.

There are a lot of games in this first wave though - I hope Nintendo can keep up the momentum.

edhe commented on Julius Caesar Will Be Taking the Battle to the...:

This is an absolute farce.

I'd like to think Nintendolife aren't telling us something important - like the developer is an established (or at least experienced) name subverting our expectations with godawful imaging skills like the one earlier in the comments, before releasing an awesome game down the line, but I really can't see that being the case.

In any case, it's far to early to be showing off the project. If all we've got is two pieces of concept art, then the game will need at least a full year of development before it'll be ready to be released.

If this developer has the skills, then they should have kept it under their hat for a bit longer. They aren't Konami or Capcom. No-one's going to give a toss about their project at this stage.

edhe commented on It's Not Waluigi Time In The New Super Smash B...:

To me, Waluigi could represent a more daring side to Nintendo. They've released games starring other fringe characters before, (Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, Super Princess Peach &, of course, WarioWare), and they've often been much more interesting than their play it safe 'New Super Mario Bros.', Wii Lifestyle or Mario/Nintendoland Party games.

I suppose it's something, that he's at least appearing in the game as a trophy, and to be honest, I'm not too upset he isn't appearing as a fully fledged character, but Nintendo really need to give him his own game.

I'd also like to see a proper Wario game as well - be it a platform adventure or WarioWare D.I.Y for this generation.

edhe commented on Investor Wants Nintendo To Create Mobile Title...:

People like this would sooner see a company go under as long as they can wring enough money out of the bloated corpse before moving on to the next host.

The same thing happened with Runescape - a game I used to love. Yes, the motions were set in place as early as 2005, but nowadays, the game is run by money men. You have the opportunity to pay for items you would normally have earned through your own hard work with real world money - every aspect of the game is geared towards prising more money from your wallet.

And now Square Enix have announced a new "free to play" iOS (we'll see how that goes!) iteration of Secret of Mana.

The games industry is going to crash so hard. It has to be inevitable if this is the only way (paying to make Mario jump higher, for example) to make enough profit.

edhe commented on Nintendo UK Launches a New "Nintendo Girls Clu...:

That's not to say anyone other than the intended demographic can't comment, obviously. I'm not a little girl myself.

I was going to gripe about how Nintendo should try advertising the WiiU, but to be fair, little girls (again, this campaign's target) are more likely to want a portable gadget than a hulking (in comparison) console to hook up to the TV.

Also, I have not watched the videos yet, because I honestly can't say I'd be able to form a valid opinion on them. My taste in gaming (although ecletic) is vastly different to that of a young girl. Judging from the screnshots, though, they seem to feature Animal Crossing, a game many of us (male or female, young or old) enjoy.

@Doma What about Barbiegurl indeed. She doesn't seem to have a problem with this. I gave my self an out by saying "most of us" though.

@Buzzthebatgirl I've now watched the first video, and it seems there's always the chance that they may feature Pokemon in a later video (I see no reason why they wouldn't - Pokemon - especially the newer on is geared towards the younger player)

"...or even request a video of your favourite game." - 00:26

Furthermore, they've put up a trailer for Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask on the channel, and while Nintendo does seem top market the puzzle games like this for women, it's certainly not a pink game.

(Edit - add to that trailers for Luigi's Mansion, Super Mario 3D Land (Granted, both Mario universe games) and Art Academy)

edhe commented on Nintendo UK Launches a New "Nintendo Girls Clu...:

We're not talking about ladies or women here, we're talking about little girls.

This campaign is targeted towards little girls, and no-one should have a problem with that because I'm willing to wager that most of us aren't little girls aged 8 to 12.

edhe commented on Talking Point: What We Expect In Nintendo Dire...:

Personally, I'd like some information on that 3DS calciobit followup and, maybe, confirmation of a Western release of the new Daigasso Band Brothers game.

On the Wii U front, I think it's about time we saw some more of Bayonetta, Hyrule Warriors and particularly X - in fact, anything that isn't just a Mario universe related game.

edhe commented on UK Retailer GAME to Open Two Pre-Owned Only St...:

It sounds a bit pointless to me. I can trade in games at GAME perfectly fine - that is, unless, they are going to branch in to Gamecube era games and beyond.

I always welcome a chance to buy some pre-owned gems, but if this is the case, I fear their shelves are going to be stocked not with classics like Tales of Symphonia or Skies of Arcadia, but with the millions of 'Wii Sports', 'Madworld', '2002 FIFA World Cup' and 'Deal or no Deal' games that no one seems to want to buy.

There are at least 4 game shops in my local city that deal in second hand games (including Game), and it's quite difficult to find anything interesting to buy.

There's plenty of copies of 'Red Steel', 'Desi Adda Games of India' and 'Ellen Whitakers Horse Life' though. Plus, 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire', 'The Sims: Busting Out', Out of date championship/Football Manager/FIFA games, not to mention hundreds of niche 'Sold Out' label PC games.

I often wonder what sort of life these games have lead. Some of them can sit on shelves for years! Then when the little game shop goes out of business, the stock is confiscated and the games are bought by another shop where they sit on a shelf for another 5 years...

edhe commented on Matters of Import: Bahamut Lagoon Roars Onto T...:

The fact of the matter is that Square-Enix aren't going to spend a single cent to translate this game so it can be brought over to the west.

It's a shame these games are so inaccessable in that respect. I suppose it's doable with a gamefaqs translation guide open (providing the game has one), but then there's the act of importing the game (again, doable in this case - it's currently listed on ebay at under £15).

All I can say is gawd bless hybrid consoles. I hope to pick the Retron up when it finally releases, and hopefully, this game too. It looks interesting.

edhe commented on Nintendo Download: 6th February (Europe):

I have Virtue's Last Reward already, and I'd certainly recommend it. I hope they get around to putting the first one on the download service, although to be honest, it's probably simpler to get it on import.

I hear Virtue's Last Reward follows on from 999.

Everything else is underwhelming - for me, personally. Nintendo needs to be putting more stuff out on the Wii U for crying out loud! The regular discounts are nice though.

edhe commented on Recently Departed Official Nintendo Magazine E...:

I should also say, I was devastated when Nintendo Gamer was shut down, and that may have coloured my initial impression of ONM. I can't really offer an opinion on how good the magazine was under him, but I'm glad his hard work has rewarded him with a prestigious job like this.

edhe commented on Recently Departed Official Nintendo Magazine E...:

I've only read two issues of ONM in my life (thanks to my subscription being transferred over when Future cruelly shut down Nintendo Gamer), and I've got to say, looking at the editors page, my first impression was "who's this guy - some sort of male model?" He was posing in a manner not too dissimilar to the one in the article, but with a Derek Zoolander poker face.

I wasn't aware he was so instrumental in changing up ONM - I'm not qualified to say whether it was for the better or not - the last time I'd bought the magazine was literally in the 90's, but I'm glad he's going on to greater things.

I'm also very glad that Matthew Castle gets the helm at the magazine - he's always come across as a nice guy, and his time at Nintendo Gamer made the magazine a very enjoyable read for me.
