It's really not a big deal. I haven't even had to wear my glasses to play the game. While I'm not saying that people's issue with it doesn't exist, I do think they're getting their panties in a wad over something very minor.

I'm okay with a free-to-play amiibo game, so long as the figures themselves are the only "microtransactions" to be found. If they'd expect other sorts of payment on top of that, well... they can go jump off a cliff with that idea.

I only didn't vote for Splatoon and Mario Maker, because I know they're going to win.

@Souldin Regarding Legend of Kay, I don't know what you were expecting. He's a C-rate anthropomorphic attempt at a mascot that hardly anyone has ever heard of, created before 3D game development stopped being the default expectation.

Genesaur commented on Review: FAST Racing NEO (Wii U eShop):

@abbyhitter You think so? I mean, it's obviously not as grand in terms of scale, but the quality of this game seems top-notch to me.

I agree that numbered ratings are inherently flawed, and I find that just reading the overview does a better job of achieving the review info for tl;dr types, but it sounds to me like you're confusing quality with scope.

@GoldenGamer88 Same. I only really had room for the Basic pack, and that's after deleting Guacamelee! and Giana Sisters to make some room.

Genesaur commented on Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U):

There is no reason to release a standalone Mario Tennis at full retail price. If it had been a new iteration of Mario Sports Mix, it might have been a different story.

I wanna make sure I'm seeing this right: is there not an option for Wii remote motion control? You only mention the sideways grip. They couldn't be bothered to add that option?

Genesaur commented on Editorial: Linkle May be a Clunky Introduction...:

Just call her Link. As others are pointing out, the whole point of the character is to act as a "link" to the player. Giving her a stupid alteration of the name that doesn't even sound more feminine (and sounds too reminiscent of "Tingle," besides) makes it feel forced and weird.

Also, double-crossbows? Who thought of that one? It bugs me that there's a clear trend of giving girls arrows as weapons, because everyone knows they can't use swords! I know they let other female characters have swords; I know that I'm generalizing. But if she's just girl Link, they seem awfully keen to make her different from him. Maybe some view that as a plus. I think it's kinda lame.

Genesaur commented on Mother 3 Heading to the Wii U eShop in Japan o...:

Given that EarthBound (not to mention EarthBound Zero) finally saw the light of day on the Wuu, I figured this to be exactly where we were headed, as soon as Nintendo announced GBA Virtual Console being specifically on the home console.

I'm pretty sure it's coming here.

Genesaur commented on Nintendo Shares Suffer Major Drop as Investors...:

Why anyone thought it was reasonable to expect Mario or Zelda is beyond me. Pikmin would have made sense, or something else where touch control is already prominent. And Miitomo makes sense, too. It just looks stupid at only first glance.
