Geonjaha commented on 3DS System Update 10.1.0-27 Available Now, Hac...:

@Galenmereth - "There are region locking concerns that aren't just about greed; what about the money aspect?"

The irony of your comment...Regardless, the important thing here is that region locking holds no advantages to the consumer. Not having region locking on a console might come with minor inconveniences (and for a large company, an inconvenience is all it is), but every other gaming company is willing to take that little hit for the sake of their consumers. Nintendo isn't. That doesn't quite inspire me to support their products. Up until the 3DS they didn't even need region locking, so pretending Nintendo is some special case is just pulling the wool over your own eyes.



Geonjaha commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

Super Mario World, of course. Mario 64 comes close, but it always ages so badly. SMW doesn't have this problem. SMB3 is good, but anyone who thinks that the NES game can compete with the superior SNES game is deluded. :3



Geonjaha commented on Review: SENRAN KAGURA 2: Deep Crimson (3DS):

@AlexOlney - Haha. You realise if you don't say this game is a 9/10 the people who bought it might have to admit they came for the sex appeal, not the (mediocre) gameplay.

cough I mean, yeah. Best fighting game ever. I'm sure everyone plays it for the articles...

@abbyhitter @Iggly - The two reviews were written by two different people, with different opinions.



Geonjaha commented on Review: I Love my Cats (3DS eShop):

I'm surprised these people bother trying to compete with Nintendogs. Love it or hate it, it's simply the top of its niche genre. Apparently the people who buy these titles are either uninformed or really just desperate for more.



Geonjaha commented on Hands On: Here's What The 3DS Version Of ​Te...:

It's not a game I would really compare to Minecraft much. They are very different, and each have their own strengths/flaws. Since both are amazing I would always recommend that people try out both.

With that said, I do love Terraria, and I'm currently playing through the 1.3 patch on PC. I can't honestly see any reason to really get the 3DS or Wii U versions at this point. I was thinking the 3DS one for some portability, but if it ends up being considerably inferior to the PC version I'd probably not be able to look past that while playing it.

@Spectra_Twilight - Unfortunately, policies like that ensure people skip Nintendo consoles for being 'kiddy'. Preventing a game from having online capabilities at all because some kind of age system can't be implemented? It's pathetic, and I hate to see it holding back good games on the platform.



Geonjaha commented on Dragon Quest XI Is Coming To The Nintendo 3DS ...:

I'll add it to the list.

Games I'd buy if Square Enix got their act together (and localised them):

  • Dragon Quest VII (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest VIII (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Monsters: Terry's Wonderland (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Monsters: Cobi/Tara's Adventure (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker 3 (3DS)
  • Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime 2 (3DS)
  • Theatrhythm Dragon Quest
  • Dragon Quest XI

It's looking more impressive every day



Geonjaha commented on Review: LEGO Jurassic World (3DS):

It's a big shame, especially because we've seen the potential LEGO actually has with its games through LEGO Worlds (Which is very promising despite only being in Early Access).



Geonjaha commented on Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 Announced for 3D...:

I'll add it to the list of good games that we won't be getting from Dragon Quest.

If anyone is interested; the Dragon Quest Monsters spinoff is based on the monster recruitment and battling from Dragon Quest V (Which came about before the first Pokemon game in case you're shouting "Pokemon ripoff!").

The Joker games (1 and 2) came out here for the DS (at least the standard versions did), and I'd recommend buying the second one over the first, as it basically improves upon it in every way.



Geonjaha commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Director...:

Oh for god sake, can everyone stop the whining over inclusion? Most gamers dont care the gender of the character they're playing. Trying to change the gender of established characters is just stupid - male or female. If you want to complain that you cant play a character other than Link, then fine, but it's a Zelda game, what exactly were you expecting?



Geonjaha commented on Nintendo Is "Exploring" The Idea Of Early Acce...:

Oh god no. The whole point of early access on PC is that you can tweak files and use mods most of the time. Having it on consoles is just an utter rip off and even more of a blatant excuse to sell unfinished games.



Geonjaha commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Promises...:

Look, I'll buy it if it costs less than £15, or has download play for multiplayer. For me, buying three £30 copies of a game to play this with others is not going to happen. I am looking forward to playing it though, so here's hoping.



Geonjaha commented on Square Enix Shuts Down Dragon Quest VII Fan Tr...:

Oh the pain of being a Western Dragon Quest fan.

For all of those thinking 'They're probably just not translating it because it has too much text, so that makes sense' - While that is what they stated...

  • Dragon Quest VIII got an iOS release, and already has a translation, so it would be easy to get that into the 3DS version, yet still they aren't localising that.
  • Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime 2 (3DS) has relatively little text, and that didn't get translated.
  • Theatrhythm Dragon Quest has even less text and even that didn't get localised.
  • Any of these games could have an eShop only release over here to reduce risk, but still Square Enix do nothing.


Geonjaha commented on Video: Enjoy Some Nostalgia With This Stylish ...:

It's quite depressing that it took this long to make another game that even comes close to the original masterpiece. It's good that they did though. Strangely, they neglect to mention Touch & Go and Universal Gravitation, but I suppose those are spin-offs.



Geonjaha commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Flogs Rare amiibo i...:

"out of stock and rarer than an original idea in a Call of Duty game."

Now I know you're only pandering to your audience of those that hate everything that isn't on their Wii U, but its really funny to hear this from a Nintendo fan site, as if Nintendo really comes up with original ideas for their 5+ franchises they have yearly iterations of.



Geonjaha commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Slashing Its Way to 3DS:

@SuperWiiU - Or a localisation of the other 3DS DQ titles. It annoys me greatly that out of the last eight DQ titles to be released in Japan, we're only getting one localised, and it's the only one that isn't available on the 3DS... -.-



Geonjaha commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

I can always trust that when I read about this kind of stuff on Nintendolife as opposed to the rest of the web, there will be dozens of fanboys trying to defend another horrible practice, as opposed to realizing that even their favourite company makes mistakes, and loyalty to them is just a stupid thing to have as a consumer.



Geonjaha commented on ​There's Already a Splatoon Inspired Minecra...:

You seem to be taking this very personally. Me not purchasing a game /=/ outrage. Despite what you choose to believe, I don't look for reasons to hate games, that wouldn't be doing me any favours.

You also don't seem to understand the problem that I and many others have with this kind of content. It's not that it wasn't developed seperately, it's that for a retail game that is at full price (£40/$60) you should be getting ALL the content that is available at launch. If I wanted to have all this game had to offer I'd have to pay considerably extra just to buy some rare toys. Content that affects the game is another issue, especially in a multiplayer game.

I explain this because you don't seem to understand my stance on the matter. Now if what you say is true, and this content is in fact all fully cosmetic, then I have no problem with the game, but I hope you now understand why I oppose the concept. If not, then that's fine, each consumer makes their own choice about where they draw the line.



Geonjaha commented on ​There's Already a Splatoon Inspired Minecra...:

@BinaryFragger - Thank you. Too often I get the feeling that everyone here is just used to it and doesn't realise how biased they're being.

@JaxonH - The fallacy that just because it isn't the worst offender in the industry I should ignore it is not one I choose to follow. Locking any content that affects the game behind a paywall on day 1 for a full priced £40 retail game is not a practice I will be supporting. If Nintendo does continue this trend of locking more and more non-cosmetic content behind a paywall on day 1 then I won't be buying it. I choose to support games that don't include this practice, and stand by that principle - as I said before, I'm sure splatoon is a great game, but that's not the point of a boycott, and there will always be more games I can buy instead, from Nintendo or from other companies that don't cut up their game on launch just to support their toy sales.

I understand that Amiibo are supposed to unlock content in games, but as soon as that content stops being cosmetic and starts affecting the game, it gets no support from me. I have a bad feeling that this WILL get worse as time goes on, and I'm hoping this doesn't end up being the reason I stop playing Nintendo games.



Geonjaha commented on ​There's Already a Splatoon Inspired Minecra...:

@Chaoz - I won't be buying any Amiibo's, but I'm also not going to buy any game that takes content away from launch to sell as toy-DLC. I dont want to support that practice. I'm looking forward to playing Yoshi's Wooly World though, and the Amiibo functionality there is fully cosmetic iirc. As long as they stick to cosmetic stuff it wont be an issue to me. If they dont, I choose to vote with my wallet; there are always more games to be played anyway.



Geonjaha commented on ​There's Already a Splatoon Inspired Minecra...:

@rjejr - It's not that it's bad, it's that a lot of the Nintendo fans here are angry that Minecraft isn't on Wii U, and so they do the only thing they know to do when they cant get something; pretend it's bad and that they didn't want it in the first place.

I think I'd rather play the free Minecraft map (not even a mod, even less hassle! ) than pay £40 for the game that locks Day 1 DLC behind toys, personally.

@capnstubing - It's a free map. Microsoft wouldn't be able to do anything about it, because once its out there people can get it so easily.



Geonjaha commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

Over expensive toys I don't have a problem with. Cosmetic DLC tied to toys I don't have a problem with. Locking actual content behind these things is as bad as Day 1 DLC, and I do not support that. Splatoon was ridiculous - locking single player content behind toys on release is just not acceptable, and I will not be buying any Nintendo game that locks content behind an Amiibo.

@Jaz007 - I'd rather not see that option; it'd open my eyes to how many people on this site don't care about that stuff as long as it's from Nintendo.

I mean seriously, Day 1 DLC is one of the most abhorrent practices in the industry, and somehow when Nintendo does it everyone's biggest complaint is not being able to buy the thing because of dwindling stocks.
