@JasonAnArgoNOT64 And yet, its still seems to be the "in" thing to do.
Are they really that dense to not see that they are loosing giant chunks a revenue since they started doing this ?
I mean lets Face it, Capcom is pretty much broke by doing this.
They ruined every franchise and IP they had by doing this.

You cant seriously tell me, that some business suit wearing monkey in their upper ranks still thinks, that stuff like that is a good idea...

Sooo, Sega screws up by desperatly ignoring their fanbase time and time again, outsourcing games to a studio that couldnt even tie their own shoes without producing glitches and bugs and now they kick people out to buffer the losses ?
Classy Sega, real classy.
Maybe you should have listened a while ago...

Its funny, that as soon as japanese companies try to appeal to a ifferent audience (the fabeled west), they topple like a house of cards.
Konami, Capcom and Sega.
Its almost as if people liked them more, when they acted like japanese game developers...hmm

Einherjar commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X is so Sizeable That It ...:

Well, why not go the two disc route then ? They dont need to be two active play discs. Make one install dict and one play disc. The play disc contains everything interactive, while the install disc just installs all static parts, like cutscenes etc.
That way, you get the biggest storage eaters out of the way.

But even with the single disc solution, there is simply no way for me to think that this game can be a misfire. Its just looks way too good.

Einherjar commented on Three New LEGO Games Heading for Nintendo Hard...:

@Mega719 Thats exactly the point.
I wouldnt want to play games like Lego Batman 2 without the constant map on my gamepad. It made the hubworld collectable grinding so much more bearable.
Then there is the 2 screens MP mode. And last but not least, lets be honest here, their core demographic doesnt really go out abd buy a 400 buck paperweight. They probably own a WiiU.

But shoddy ports and knowing in advance that those version will not see further updates in form of DLC really breaks their necks.
The LEGO games are about collecting hundrets upon hundrets of mini figures. It always was their main attraction just to see how many characters the devs thought of and even how many minor ones theyve included.
Not having the option to get these few additional ones does indeed hurt a little.

All with stunning features such as:

  • Lack of further DLC support
  • Potentially buggy port jobs
  • No specieal features what so ever !

Pre order today and get your very own, limited bag of absolutely nothing for free ! (for a small payment of 10 bucks)

Did i mention that im rather miffed about the whole Lego Batman 3 thing ?

This poor guy needs a serious break.
Lets be honest here, Nintendo is what it is because of people like him.
People, that work their behinds off day and night to produce a game thats simply finished, polished and almost perfect.
But its no use if they overdo it like he did.
Take a well earned break Mr Sakurai, pause for a year or two and then start again with renewed energy.

Einherjar commented on Moon Chronicles: Episodes 2, 3, & 4 Launching ...:

@JHDKoopman To be fair, that whole concept works for TV shows, but not for games.
You dont really pay for it and thus, its not all that important if the pilot can grab you or not. If the first geme episode doesnt grab you, you basically payed for a demo. You lost money, dont like the game AND you cant even finish it.

Then, there are people like Tim "Moneysponge McRip-Of" Shaefer.
He asked for 400000$ on Kickstarter for an episodic adventure game, got 3.3million (!!!) and STILL, up to this day, hasent finished anything but akt 1 and is already planning another Kickstarter project.

Its the fear that the project might never be finished, that youre investing in a game, that you might never be able to play through.

Dont get me wrong, Moon is an excellent game, but this episodic nonsense is just silly...

Oh, and by the way. Someone send Renegade Kid a globus or a world map where Europe is circled in with a big, red marker.

@Haru17 Well, "Scalpers" are usually people, who go in at launch day of Product X, buy the whole stock and sell it at double price.
But these people online, that hog physical game copys just to sell them for ridiculous amounts of money often fall in the same category.

All in all, these people are filth.
And every wrench thrown into their plan is a good one.

Einherjar commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

@TheDavyStar Im in no way offended by this. Why should i ?
Its part of history, its recognisable and most importantly, its over.

The thing about "there is no need to make him black" why not ?
African Tribesmen ARE black. Mario was used to portrait these people, because they are a recognisable part of africa.
He could as well have been a kangaroo for australia. Would it be necessary to do that ? Of course not. But name me the first stereotypical visual trait when you think of australian people ?

Just do the test and ask people what they think of when mentioning the term "african tribesmen".
And thats what they were going for. All visual cues to make that image instantly be recognizable in shape of Mario, being the mascot.

You see, people screaming "thats racist" left and right are also the ones saying skin color doesnt matter. So why is it such a big deal if Mario is portrayed with one that resembles that of real african tribesmen ?
If skincolor truely doesnt matter at all, changing it for the sake of paying homage shouldnt matter eaither.

Discussions like that always make me think of pale people going to a tanning booth to turn from cheesy white to toasty tan brown.
Isnt that racist too ? Arent they changing their ethnicity ?

This thought is at least as ridiculous as thinking that portraying mario with a darker skincolor is somehow racist. I mean, who does he hurt with portraying these people ?

Einherjar commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

@Damo Again, let me answer with another question:
Why not Mario ?

Mario is the star of the game, i personally think its funny and entertaining seeing him in all those different roles.
Youre doing as if mario is anything more than just an empty shell with a recognizable mustache.
He has no personality traits, no character other than his recognisable visual key features.
He was a Rock, a Spring, a Bee, a Ghost, had more jobs and hobbies than we all have hair on our heads, so why not a native african tribesmam with his most recognizable features ?

If Mario would have just stood there with a spear and shield in his hand with an elephant in the bakcground, people would have whined about the animal cruelty that is implied, since the stereotype that they tried to show would be more or less lost.

Einherjar commented on Review: Breath of Fire (Wii U eShop / Super Ni...:

To be honest, BoF did many things its competitors didnt.
The fact, that characters had abilities outside of battle, like hunting, moving boulders, digging etc was pretty unique.
Then you had brilliant things like the character fusion skill, which combined certain characters of your party into one both in and outside of battle.
You had day and night cycles that affected the game itself and not just monster groups showing up.

The only part where the original BoF and to a certain degree BoF2 were ceverely lacking is the interface, which is just clunky.

Downplaying all this as "some idead that didnt go far enough" isnt really fair in my opinion. Its execution might be a bit on the slow and rusty side, but the ideas it had were brilliant.
Its really sad that most JRPGs completely neglected the idea of usefull character abilities outside of battle.

Einherjar commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

@shaneoh Or that. And guess what, i still dont give a goomba about it.
They are among the worst groups of people who ever wandered the earth but they are still recognisable.
Darth Vader and his henchmen were based upon them, the Helghast from Killzone were based upon them and both are very beloved fictional factions.

It just became a memorable trope. The "army in black trenchcoats" became a synonym for "the ultimate badguys" that is instantly recognizable.
Never have i thought that im being misrepresented or labeled a Nazi by default.

And once more @topic:
Just picture search "african tribesmen", "Mexican" "german" and look at the results.
Thats what they were trying to portrait. Thats the first thing that comes to peoples minds. Those are tried and true tropes and stereotypes.
No one has to identify with them personally, but they work perfectly to pinpoint the origin country of your fictional character.

Einherjar commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

"in Africa he possesses an uncharacteristically dark skin tone and is shown carrying a spear and shield" Yes, like the usual stereotypical tribal man is displayed.

Whats the big deal ? The skin tone ? Maybe Mario stood too long out in the sun and got tanned.
Debates like that are stupid beyond belief. Ever heard a german person (like myself) complain that we are mostly portrayed as lederhosen wearing fat bellied sausage and prezel eaters and beer drinkers ?

I sure didnt. Its a freakin stereotype. Thats an easy thing to assosiate, just like france and breadsticks, mexico and sombreros, germany and lederhosen, any scandinavian country and red haired vikings.

So, to get this straight: The cartoon itself just showed Knuckles flying off into space and the writer made a snarky remark regarding the jump glitch in the game ?

As much as i hate that broken mess of a game, but at least these guys have an ounce of humor. Then again, that doesnt account for selling garbage data on a disc at full price.

Einherjar commented on Video: Eiji Aonuma Shows Off Gyroscope Aiming ...:

@BensonUii Metroid Prime Trilogy doesnt use the gyro sensor though, it uses the the sensor bar / pointer. Thats exactly the pet peeve i had with Skyward sword.
Example:
In Metroid, pointing at the center of the screen is, well, always the center of the screen.
In SW though, it uses the gyro sensor. What that means is, if you aim outside of the screen decenters your aim. Man, this is hard to explain.
say, your pointing half your screen length away from your TV. Your crosshair is still on the edge of your screen. So to center it, you basically had to aim at the outer rim.
I hope that many any sense :P

Einherjar commented on Video: Eiji Aonuma Shows Off Gyroscope Aiming ...:

I really like Gyroscope aiming to be honest, well, at least when its done by moving the screen around, and not like it was done in Skyward Sword, you get the idea.
Aim in the general direction with the stick and finetune you aim quickly via gyroscope.

Einherjar commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

@2Sang Well, like many other things, sometimes, they need to come to an end.
If this is truely a dumb decision can best be judged if we actually know what will replace it. If the Service is just canned because it is replaced with a far more advanced and streamlined one, more power to them, really.

Seeing that the Club Nintendo thing was Nintendos main corner stone for many many promotions as of late, leading to quite a lot of extra sales that might not have happened otherwise, i highly doubt that this will just vanish and not be replaced by anything similar or even superior.

Lets just wait and see.

Einherjar commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

@Drobotic @torotoid64 No wonder that i never heard of it, since i completely skipped the DSi and merely got a handfull of titles from it via the 3DS eShop.
It was just weird having so much demand for something, that looked so..."mundane" from an outside viewpoint.
I guess its the fact that i wasnt part of said community efforts.
But many thanks for clearing that up :)

@Mus1cLov3r What does that have to do with anything ?
I just didnt understand all the hype for an "animation scribble pad" thingy, that looked, like i stated above, rather mundane for someone, who wasnt involved in its community.
So dont jump to conclusions here ;)

Einherjar commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

@2Sang Well, to be fair "not buying anything ever again" might be a bit overshooting the whole affair here.
I mean, how often do you plan on loosing your device or frying it during a thunder storm while youre transfering stuff over to another system.

The chance of loosing your stuff is there, but its rather small. And i have to say, Nintendo always did a really good job when i send in my systems for repairs, and always took care of my purchased licenses.

Im more concerned about their backup plan *should" something go south now, that is all really.

Einherjar commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

So, since Club Nintendo acted as some sort of "middle man" to register all your digital purchases (some even reported that Nintendo could restore them that way), what does that say about digital purchases in the future ?

Even without a dedicated account system, purchases have to be tracked somehow. Is it really save enough to solely bank on the "bound to System ID" system ? Whyt if a system transfer fails due to a power outage ?

Lets all hope that Nintendos replacement program might just be Nintendos answer to a dedicated, global account system.

And lets speculate even further:
With the N3DS on the doorstep, a more powerful system capable of running software beyond the capabilities of teh regular 3DS, this also could mean that there will be more shared games due to this. But this is *highly speculative

Einherjar commented on Rumour: Could Xenosaga's KOS-MOS Be Appearing ...:

@CanisWolfred The free to play part was a gloryfied demo, yes.
Though i guess by Nintendos rules, a demo couldnt have ended up with purchase options, so theyve probably gone this route instead.

Like i said, i quite liked the concept. i got the rather fun and simplistic, arcady single player campaign for relatively cheap which i would otherwise never have bothered to buy.

Convoluted and confusing ? Absolutely. But a bad idea in general ? I really dont think so.
If fleshed out and streamlined a little more, i think many games and gamers alike could benefit from something like that.
Lets say: You buy a shooter, but never really play online. Well, leave out all multiplayer content and save money and disc space.
Which would obviously just work with games that have dedicated modes for each. Games like Mario Kart wouldnt really benefit from it, as it would just block one menu option, but i think you get the idea.

Id really welcome a "pay for what you want" option, as long as the full package ends up at the regular retail price.
Anything more, and we would just have ended up at EAs DLC policy.

Einherjar commented on Sonic Boom Gets a Whopping 1GB+ Update in Euro...:

@BensonUii If you want to show him the games represented in Smash, there is no way around Lost Worlds, as the Stage in smash is taken from there.
And the story is entertaining and not even half bad :)

And i recently got that Pacman Ghost thingy game since it was on sale for a 10er (the first one)
Its a decent, if mediocre platformer. Nothing to write home about really. But you can spend 10 (30 if you buy both) bucks on worse games really :)

Though to be fair, many of Pacmans moves are direct references to his classic games, so there is no way around the fact, that you have to show him the classic Pacman and probably bore him to tears with it :P

And like i said, you cant really go wrong with Transformed in any way. Its a fantastic game in and of itself and also serves as a means to introduce him to even more classic franchise of teh Sega flavor ;)

Einherjar commented on Sonic Boom Gets a Whopping 1GB+ Update in Euro...:

@BensonUii To be honest, i thought Lost Worlds was a blast to play.
It was a proper platformer, although its bossfights could have used a bit more work.
The same goes for Allstar Racing Transformed. In my opinion, the only Mario Kart knockoff who is on par, and maybe even better in certain regards than the original. It does have much more single player content for sure.
This should be a definite buy ;)

Boom on the other hand is a generic brawler with some platforming sprinkled in. To be honest, as generic as it can get.
I personally wouldnt really recommend it. I had much more fun with Lost Worlds

Einherjar commented on Rumour: Could Xenosaga's KOS-MOS Be Appearing ...:

@SamirMalik Not necessarily. Guild Wars handled it the same way. The hub towns were the only parts where players could interact with others. Once you left them, everything was instanced for you and your party.

Its the perfect system for story oriented games, since you wont have other random players interfere with boss encounters and such.

Einherjar

#38

Einherjar commented on Rumour: Could Xenosaga's KOS-MOS Be Appearing ...:

@CanisWolfred As far as im aware, both version (if you assamble all the digital parts) are one and the same.
Though i have to say, it was a pretty interesting idea they had there.
I got the game way cheaper this way, since i could just leave out the multoplayer portion that was severely lackluster.
Thus, i only payed for the content i really wanted.

And at the time of its release, all digital parts of the game together cost the same as the retail version (At least over here in germany)

So i dont really think that you can compare these things, as Tank³ was more of a "pay what you want" kinda deal instead of "pay to stay competetive" like Ace Combat infinity is handled.

Einherjar commented on Rumour: Could Xenosaga's KOS-MOS Be Appearing ...:

@R-L-A-George I sure hope so. Nintendos own F2P endevours have been rather fair as of yet. Even the very "smartphone esque" pokemon game thats comming soon has several options for you to continue playing besides flat out buying more gametime.

@MaverickHunterX Wait...what ? What made you think its Xenosaga ?
And i highly doubt that this will be a fully fledged MMORPG

@CanisWolfred Im kinda glad that you cant give a damn about it, as your speachs are pretty unbearable and shallow.

Again, if your eimpatient enough not to care about a tutorial chapter, you also dont care about a completely irrelevant story.
Thus, skipping the whole thing is far from "not making sense".
There are quite a lot of people from teh "i just want to play already" camp out there.
But a butchered, abridged tutorial wont help anyone. Either all, or nothing.

Einherjar commented on Rumour: Could Xenosaga's KOS-MOS Be Appearing ...:

@Quorthon Yeah, i know that feeling.
And a buddy of mine was idiotic enough, to drop several hundret € into it, just to get a certain plane...
And for those who dont know how this game works:
You can play 3 stages (fuel) every 12 hours. There is only a very very basic "single player" (which also costs fuel) and only one multiplayer mode, which is an 8 player (two squads of 4) Co-Op score attack,
New ships and parts have to be grinded first (every stage grants a certain amount of research exp) and once unlocked, costs a ludacris amount of in game money.
The kicker: Special planes handed out in events can only be gotten, when you reach the top 200 of the GLOBAL leader boards.
These ships grossly overshadow the regular planes, making score attacks unfair and at the end of the day unwinable.
And even worse: With certain updates, normal planes get buffs, rendering the special planes weaker than the regular ones...
Thus, rendering your efforts and money spend pointless.

Its really one of the worst manages F2P games out there, and it shows, as its user base plummitted pretty hard.

I sure hope that Nintendo prevents them using such rip-off tactics again, and infuses the project with their own, fresh ideas shown in their own F2P titles, where purchases with real money are really the last resort action.

Einherjar commented on Rumour: Could Xenosaga's KOS-MOS Be Appearing ...:

If its anything like their Ace Combat PS3 MMO, dont even bother to check it out.
Their interpretation of "Free2Play" has to be one of the worst ever created.
I sure hope that Nintendo will intervene to make it a tad more barable.

@Topic
Looking at the screencap, the cheek guard is pretty obvious. And Xenosaga being a project by Namco and Monolith, her appearing in a WiiU exclusive title wouldnt be all that unrealistic.

@vitalemrecords For me, the main benefit of all this will come with games supporting the classic controller.
Not having to hook up the WiiMote combo for this is a nice comfortability bonus.

Everything is else just conveniance of having the games always around on your HDD. Which is nice, but i wouldnt necessarily double dip for it.

It also costs a Shirtton of money. Im just glad that this game comes over here. Thats all i could ever wish for ;)

Einherjar commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Hits Japan on 29th April:

Yup, Oktober / November sounds about right.
After what had happened with teh original and its Project Rainfall support explosion, i guess they are working on the localization simultaniously this time.

But in any case (and please dont stone me for this):
Take as much time as you need. Id much rather wait a bit longer for a high quality product than to rush it out and end up with a translation of the TES Oblivion variety.

In any case, those are two games im really really looking forward too.
Though i have to say, id really wished the 3DS port of Xenoblade would have gotten the same treatment Majoras Mask got, meaning an overhauled Quest Log.
Its a real pain to find every little side quest at the proper time, since they are not marked on the map and devided between day and night.

Einherjar commented on Video: Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offe...:

I didnt expect anything other then conveniance and Gamepad support for certain titles, which is a definite plus in my book, as it gets rid of the awkward WiiMote+Controller bundle.
Personally, i just hope that the 3DS re-release of Xenoblade doesnt hurt its re-release on the, well, lets call it "WiiU VC" because truth be told, nothing would beat the Wii version played solely on the gamepad in a comfy bed :P

Ill probably get all games that go for a 10er at launch, you cant really go wrong with that.

@vitalemrecords Which would still be upscaled. Trust me, ive played Xenoblade on two identical TVs back to back, one copy via Wii, one via WiiU and the picture quality is extremely different.

@Tsurii897 Games were always bound to your systems internal ID number. If youve entered your Club Nintendo ID, it was also bound to that.
In case of your NNID, its main function is your user profile for online activities. But since its also connected to your CN profile, you can do the math.

Einherjar commented on Atlus Announces Launch Week Discounts for Citi...:

@Ralek85 You misunderstood the point i tried to make with teh PS+ thing. I was refering to Sonys net intake regarding their services.
One gen prior, these services have been free, so i assume that sony was very well in the black with cost/income on their servers.
Thus, turning the service into a subscription based one sound to me like a total net win (im aware that it isnt)
The number wasnt to showcase how "costly" it is for the consumer, but rather to show how much money goes down the drain for a service that barely works.

And thats where our preferences differ. For you, communication aspects are what you feel are the core aspects, i on the other hand think that a server connection is quite vital :P
In all seriousness though, i had so much negative experience with the PSN, it isnt funny anymore. And im not even talking about the network, once the game has been started.
For insance, i bought Drive Club at launch and untill now, wast able to connect to the server once, not a single time.
Which is awesoome, considering its a "semi MMO" with most of its content locked away by online unlocks.

But to be fair, we probably will never come to terms with this argument, because our preferences are so different to start with.
I perfectly understand your points, and youre absolutely right, but i personally think that these are non issues. At least they have been for me.

So, instead of arguing in circles over and over, lets leave it at that you are perfectly right and made valid points, just that these points are things i simply dont care about.
I dont care about voice chat on consoles, since i much prefer a more flexible way over skype and co. The friend lobby worked perfectly for me and i recieved more free games i care about form Nintendos promotions than i did fro other services (PSN offers more, granted, but not more that i care about. Purely subjective here, no valid point)

Einherjar commented on Atlus Announces Launch Week Discounts for Citi...:

@Ralek85 WItch "vanishing games" i didnt meant games pulled from the service, but payed games somehoiw loosing the "bought" tag.
I contacted customer service 4 times, each time for about 1 hour, discussing the fact that my account ballance page lists these games as purchased, yet, the databank didnt flag it properly.
And what did customer service say ? "We have no idea why this happened"....and did nothing....
I have evidence of my purchase at hand, with all of my personal data visable and they are still unable to say "well, here ya go, we flagged it manualy"
And this happened not just once. Its every time the system goes into "maintainance mode" which feels like its doing every 5 minutes.

And i still have no clue why people have such an issue with with the friendlist service, let alone external chats.
Granted, the chat thing is a personal choice, but ive never used a single in-game /in- system chat across all platforms for a simple reason:
Conveniance.
Why is it not conveniant to use a setup on hand ?
Well, on PS3 for instance, its game based, so everytime youre changing the game, there is no voice chat. So if im playing with friends, i just open up a skype group call and have them around no matter what game / system were using. Not to mention that the call quality isnt dependant on the network stability of said system.

And i have yet to see a game where i cant simply join a friends game. It works in Mario Kart, it works in Smash, it works in Monster Hunter.
But again, personal preference, not an argument.

The fact remains, that the NintendoNetwork, a free service, works overall far better than a payed service does, which is pretty sad in my opinion.

And one last thing about the network stability:
Lets only go by PS4 sales. 13,50 million people own that system. Lets pretend everyone of them is a PS+ member (not counting PS3/Vita users)
13,50mio users * 49,99$ a year (only counting yearly subscription costs) = 674,865,000$ a year for networking costs.
Call me a hypocrit, but with numbers like that, i expect a little more security, than constant credit card thefts, security breaches (leaks etc), DDOS attacks etc.
DDOS protection alone is no wizardry these days.

Dont get me wrong, im fully aware that there cant be a perfect protection against these things, and im not accusing them of sitting on their lazy bum, but im rather disappointed that this sort of problem comes up constantly.
That they release deice after device using said network, but seem unable to properly fix it first hand.
Especially with their PS4, the network experience is equal to that, we had on the DS ! Most of the time it doesnt work, and if it does, you wish it didnt.

Sorry in advance for my rant, i hope you didnt take this as a "personal attack / rant". That was not intendet. Im just so fed up with Sony and simply cant understand where all the flak towards the Nintendo Network comes from, a system that worked flawlessly for me since it started.

@Ralek85 Yup, they should at least be up to par with Sony, have the occasional security breach, constant down times, having my purchased products vanish or simply not work at all, or how about rendering them unavailable on the system they are for, thus making it necessary to download them via PC.
Sorry, but i take no cross buy benefits over a completely non working infrastructure that caused me more money loss and frustration any day.

Nintendo might not offer all that pampering its competitors do, but at least its working.
