Gate_Shikimuri commented on Mobile Developers Extremely Positive About Nin...:

"The upsetting thing is that they will probably employ the same strategy of free-to-pay and cash in on virtual goods."

Nintendo never said their mobile games would be free-to-play. I guess this is an assumption since the most successful games on mobile are free-to-play.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Mobile Developers Extremely Positive About Nin...:

"It's great to see that more core game developers are taking mass market touch screens seriously as a primary gaming device."

I really don't think that's a thing that Nintendo was thinking. Secondary, maybe. Tertiary, absolutely. Primary, I don't think so.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on From Soy Sauce Hopes to Bring Touhou Super Sm...:

I'd play this but I wish Team Shanghai Alice ported their games over to Wii U and/or 3DS. Imagine playing Embodiment of Scarlet Devil and Imperishable Night on the gamepad!

EDIT: I honestly think Team Shanghai Alice could've made a fighter game better than From Soy Sauce ever could.

Rovio, if you're really shirked for money, at least give us quality games. $50 is too much for a mobile phone game you can pay for next to nothing for on the original platform. And Nintendo of America, how dare you even allow this to even happen. You know Angry Birds. You do realize it's not worth that price, yes? Reggie needs to kick out the people in charge of eShop management.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:

I don't get why people are saying Nintendo shouldn't claim money from THEIR products just because someone else is Let's Playing THEIR stuff. Y'all sound like a bunch of idiots. If someone's using and making money from MY stuff, I deserve to get that money, too.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition Software Bundle C...:

Great. Now can you please say 'Mario Kart 8 preorders come with a free Wii Remote Plus' or 'Mario Kart 8 comes bundled with a Wii Remote Plus'? Why is it that the games I have little interest in come with a WR+ but not the games I am interested in? What if some comes over and wants to play with me? I'll only have one WR+!



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Nintendo Quashes Rumours Of New Hardware At E3...:

I still would've liked a 3DS+ or something where it could have HD and can stream to Wii U have more processing power or another Wii U package containing 500GB storage space. I would say "a more powerful Wii U" but if they did that, I would feel like I shot myself in the foot especially since my games are tied to the system hardware.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Ubisoft Now "Fully Focused" On Making The Wii ...:

I know I'm speaking common sense but hear me out:

1) Wouldn't it had made sense to put more people on the Wii U dev team and delayed the other versions?

2) Wouldn't delaying the Wii U version undoubtedly ensure its failure due to people already owning it on other consoles and killing hype?

3) Shouldn't they have canned the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions due to the game coming out on their successors?

4) Shouldn't development have started on the Wii U version first seeing as its architecture is different from the two?

5) Do they really think Wii U owners will stand for this backhanded treatment?



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Nintendo Download: 1st May (North America):

Well, I guess if I had eShop cred, I would get Stick It to The Man plus some of the games I've missed over the past few weeks. If I had actual money, I'd get SMT IV at retail, MGolf at retail, and Kirby 3D at retail.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:

People fail to realize; Nintendo wasn't always a video game company. It was an entertainment company that first began making toys and cards. I just see this as him saying, "Yeah, we make video games, but we're also going back to our roots as a entertainment company." and people basically saying, "What? That's stupid. You make video games. Don't do this. Keep making only video games." I don't see people telling Microsoft to stop making Windows and Office and focus on Xbox or telling Sony to stop making TVs and cameras and focus on Playstation.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Nintendo To Market Mario Kart 8 Through The En...:

Plus, if it wasn't for Mario Kart, All Stars Racing wouldn't exist. Really, transforming vehicles? The stole that from Mario Kart 7 and Diddy Kong Racing. Then when it came out [All Stars Racing Transformed], people said Nintendo could learn from SEGA when SEGA was the one who learned from Nintendo.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Miiverse Update Imposes Restrictions on Postin...:

I approve. Miiverse isn't meant to be a chatroom. It was meant for people to share empathy on shared Video Game topics, not RP'ing or dating or whatever else. Besides, if you want to talk about something that isn't game-related or about other things, there's always the Messages tab.

Spammers, too.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Rumour: Mario Kart 8 Wii U Hardware Bundle On ...:

That box art seems legit, though... The PEGI rating means it's UK, so I'll wait 'n see if NinEU announces this because usually NinUS follows suit.

EDIT: Wait, the Mario Kart 8 case is supposed to be RED (unless it's blue in EU). This seems REAL suspicious now.



Gate_Shikimuri commented on Vita Overtakes 3DS in Tough Week for Japanese ...:

...You made it seem like the Vita is winning with your article title when it's just, in fact, gaining speed desperately trying to catch up. Just because 3DS lost speed doesn't mean the Vita is winning. The 3DS already overlapped the Vita! Come back when the LIFETIME sales overtake the 3DS.



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

I keep forgetting Sims. ^_^; But I do mean it when I say that parents most likely DON'T want their kids being exposed to that and it's undoubtedly the parents paying for the games for smaller children. It's their own problem if they find same-sex relationships 'unethical'. I for one (and I bet a lot of people here agree) don't really care if it was put in. It IS a simulation game and it IS to a point simulating reality. Some people can't handle that same-sex is reality. Like I said, that's their problem.



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

Except there never was any same-sex marriage.

"...female Mii characters were designed and clothed in such a way that they looked male."

I do agree they should've put it in, but, being rated the way it is, it probably would madden some parents opposed to such things.
