EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. and amiibo Ha...:

Truth be told, I haven't had the slightest interest in amiibo up to this point. The concept behind it seems excellent, but I don't think they really know how to implement it yet. I'm not about to shell out 15 dollars for a plastic toy that will net me a character skin in Mariokart and a marginally more challenging CPU fighter in Smash. It just seems to me like an unnecessary accessory, they need to give a real reason for why you NEED an amiibo.

EvisceratorX commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Based off my experience, I totally agree with a nine. A ten should be both innovative and absolutely flawless. This game was absolutely fantastic, but it was neither of those. What we received was the most refined smash bros. ever made, but the two things that took it from a ten were an underwhelming Smash Tour and stage builder.

EvisceratorX commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Outlines Core Nintendo Philos...:

The day that Nintendo becomes just like all the other companies will be the day that the original spirit of the gaming dies. Just looking at the way the rest of the industry is becoming more dependent on competition and a healthy bottom shows this. They put out great games, make no mistake, but I've yet to play anything by another company that has managed to capture that same childlike sense of wonder that characterized the games of yesteryear.

EvisceratorX commented on Sounds Like Super Smash Bros. Director Masahir...:

While I do have deep respect for the depth of this man's dedication and ambition, it's really his fault that he's so stressed. The team is there for a reason and whether he knows them very well or not is superficial. Would it be that hard to delegate a task to somebody and then check over the work later on? The way he speaks about his peers, it's like none of them are good enough and he has to do it all himself.

EvisceratorX commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

I don't understand why Platinum games sell so poorly. I've gone through their entire portfolio at least once and not a single one was worthy of these kinds of sales. Granted, they make very difficult action gamer-centric titles, but still, why do gamers not go for that kind of stuff anymore?

EvisceratorX commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:

Watched that presentation and good god, public speaking is not Damon's strong suit. Props to the guy for stepping up and trying to fill the very big shoes left by Adelman, but he started practically every sentence with "Uh, um, ah". It's one of those things that grates after awhile, y'know?

EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

I don't understand all the fuss. How cheap do you people want these games? 5 dollars for the original metroid or super mario bros. is an AWESOME deal if you ask me and it only makes sense that the slightly newer GBA or SNES games would cost more. And when you think about the process involved in porting stuff over and the additional features put into the emulation, the prices seem about right. Maybe it's just because I remember when some of these games were in retail for 30-40$, but I don't see any issue here pricewise. They definitely need to step up support and bring way more games to it, but that's another argument.

I agree with most of the stuff except the no physical idea. I know that Nintendo says they intend to apply an account based system, but until they actually do it, the chances of a digital only console succeeding at all are about those of a snowball's chance in hell.

EvisceratorX commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

I don't think it really matters how they do their presentation, but the extreme focus on smash bros. worries me. They better have the most kickass presentation in years, because this is essentially Nintendo's last chance to prove the relevancy of the Wii U. If there's a meh performance this year, nobody is going to take it seriously from here on out, aside from loyalists.

EvisceratorX commented on New Instalment In The Popular Fatal Frame Fran...:

I think this'll get brought west in some form. Think about it, Nintendo has been saying they want to bring out more games that showcase the gamepad and the eShop would offer a prolific, yet low-cost, marketplace to present it in. A digital release is a no brainer.

EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

The way I see it, this is a precursor to Nintendo unifying the eShops. Whenever they decide to roll out the unified accounts, an eShop won't be far behind, if not released simultaneously. Then all virtual console games and certain indie games will be available for both platforms.

EvisceratorX commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ambitious Sales Targ...:

The 3DS will probably come pretty close to hitting its goals, but I wouldn't hold my breath for the Wii U. Due to exorbitantly poor marketing, Nintendo almost completely wasted that 1 year head start they had on the other 2 consoles. Had they waited until now to release it, they could've at least been starting on even footing with the others. Now, it's going to be an uphill battle to not only reverse the negative publicity, but start rallying positive hype.
