Geonjaha commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

Oh please, as if they're actually going to do this anytime soon. We just had the New 3DS release with region locking - it's going to be a long while at least.

Once they do see how silly they're being though, I'll be importing Dragon Quest games so fast I'll probably go broke.



Geonjaha commented on The Game Boy Color is Now 16 Years Old:

My first console ever. See that game playing on the GBC in the picture? Yeah, we need that on the 3DS Virtual Console, along with every other DQ game. Get to it Square Enix - stop letting everyone down!



Geonjaha commented on Preview: Going Retro On The Go With Ultimate N...:

"Ultimate NES Remix seems like it's perfect for those without access to the original Wii U releases of the game"

I really don't see how. I'd rather play something as simple as an NES minigame collection on my 3DS than my Wii U for portability, and have to only buy one title instead of two. Keeping the best titles from both? Great. No MiiVerse integration? I don't ever use MiiVerse so for me this is a non-issue. Limited leaderboards seems a shame, but it beats not having any at all.

EDIT: Wait - this isn't an eShop release? LOL, never mind then. £30? You're having a laugh Nintendo. Guess I'll skip this too then. :/



Geonjaha commented on More Minecraft Mania Looks Set for Wii U With ...:

I'll say it again - just buy Minecraft on the PC if you want to play it. Don't have a PC? Fricking get one - who buys a console as niche as a Wii U before a PC (or any other console that currently has Minecraft for that matter)? Don't bother buying into these clones - they are all worse than the original product.

@Mega719 - Indies ripping off a game to try and cash in on lots of money is somehow noble? Lol, yeah - sure.

> "How about Ice Climbers; those characters that appeared in one game that no one really cared about and wasn't very good?"
> "Makes sense to me"

Smash fans start raging



Geonjaha commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

Cue people defending a practice that has no benefit to the consumer. Seriously - this is 2014, Simultaneous international releases and regionless consoles should be a given. Nintendo is just using aged practices that shouldn't be around anymore. Fix it Nintendo - stop willingly screwing over your own customers.



Geonjaha commented on Preview: Fantasy Life is Waiting to Become Par...:

@Porky - In a way I suppose it does, although I've questioned before how free you will actually be to do whatever you want, eg. whether you'll need to actually change 'class' to start cutting down a tree.

There's a guy shown in the trailer that lets you 'change your life'. Why cant you just go out and do what you like (much like Rune Factory) without having to bother going to change your profession? Still keeping an eye on the game it just looks like it'll be more tedious than it needs to be.



Geonjaha commented on Super Mario Ball:

I remember the physics not being the best, but it was definitely fun at the time to play.



Geonjaha commented on Gallery: It's OK, We Want Each And Every One O...:

Nintendo, even you can't region lock a plastic plate, so with that in mind I'll be trying to pick up a Dragon Quest themed one from Japan. You may not let me play your games Square Enix, but I can sure as he'll try and look like I do!



Geonjaha commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

The amount of argument ls this topic brings up always makes me chuckle. Instead of waiting around, just buy it on the PC. It is and always will be the best version of the game. If you have any decent PC or laptop you could play it with at least the specs of the current gen consoles. If however you bought a Wii U instead of a good PC then I criticize your choices. :P



Geonjaha commented on New Mighty No. 9 Trailer Builds The Hype as Ke...:

@MrGawain - Linear gameplay means a more refined game. The industry will never move past the concept because it isn't a objectively inferior method of game design. If this game ends up not meeting expectations it will be because it wasn't made well enough, not because it was linear.



Geonjaha commented on New Mighty No. 9 Trailer Builds The Hype as Ke...:

@JaxonH - I don't think you quite understand the idea of a boycott. It means purposefully not buying from them, even if you do have some interest in their titles. If you stop buying from them simply because you don't want any of their current games that isn't a boycott. It's supposed to be about not supporting them when you want their products to stand by a principle.



Geonjaha commented on Square Enix Wants To Bring Dragon Quest VII To...:

I hate you Square Enix. Not only would I buy Dragon Quest VII, I'd also buy the other three 3DS Dragon Quest titles in a heartbeat - one of them is a remake of one of my favourite games ever. Set up some kind of pre-order or kickstarter system - Just do something you numpties. Stop robbing us of the continuation of the Mother of the RPG genre.



Geonjaha commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

@PinkSpider - I'm pretty sure Animal Crossing is the definition of a casual game. Don't assume a negative connotation to the term. It's a well established and content rich franchise, but its still casual.

@sub12 - Maybe it should be about creating more core franchises or bringing others back to their roots like Metroid, rather than simply cancelling the series you personally don't like?



Geonjaha commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

@electrolite77 - True, but if the product is actually still available to purchase legitimately (even if it is on the overpriced Virtual Console) then I revert to a stance of piracy being wrong, and would prefer to buy it second hand, because at least then its legal. As I said though, I understand not doing that, its just my personal choice.



Geonjaha commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

My view on the matter is that if there isn't any legitimate way to purchase a certain game anymore (e.g. right now anything from before the Wii/DS in terms of Nintendo software), then its fine. If they're available on, say, the Virtual Console, then that's a different matter. If you think the Virtual Console price is over the top then buy it second hand.

Honestly though as long as the game in question is more than 2 generations old (pre-DS/Wii right now) then I can understand using other methods to play it. The problem is that Nintendo's Virtual Console service is overpriced for what it offers. They could offer something to actually entice people to pay a couple of pounds for an old game, but instead they offer a poorer service than emulators, or even their own 20+ year old hardware! Seriously Nintendo, the GBC had different palette choices for GB games, why cant the 3DS implement such a simple feature? That's just one thing that could be done, but Nintendo seems adamant into putting as little effort into the service as possible.



Geonjaha commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

@ShadyKnights - I understand that Ubisoft has done some pretty stupid things, but i call things as I see them, I don't search for little excuses to hate on a company even more. I understand the straw that broke the camels back idea, but in this situation it just seems silly.

Imagine Ubisoft was a person. All that's happened the last couple of days is that one of their Friends gave a small criticism of someone else. For some reason Ubisoft gets blamed for this mild mannered statement. The next day they compliment someone. How dare they! These have truly been the final straws!

My point is that the response to these articles just shows that people by this point are desperately looking for more excuses to hate Ubisoft, in situations where they haven't even done anything wrong. It looks petty; wait until they actually do something wrong to overreact to it.

To be honest I imagine most of unjustified anger here is solely because of the fact that it was a Nintendo game that happened to recieve a criticism. People who have broken their camels backs over this have attached themselves to a game they like, and seem unable to react in a sane manner to a criticism of it. It's not like it's that uncommon of an opinion; quite a few people in first articles comments agreed with the statement.



Geonjaha commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

@Kuhang - This kind of thing has happened before. The fact that it was taken down quickly and Ubisoft stated something along the lines of "This employee's opinion doesn't represent that of Ubisofts" shows that is what happened.

No, I don't blindly follow companies, but I also don't boycott their games just because one employee of the company happened to state an opinion over a game. Even if they did actually say it officially I wouldn't care; it isn't an insult. Honestly though if you want to stop supporting a company because someone in it said something mean about Nintendo then that's your choice, I just find it funny that you call people sheep for not doing the same.

@akaDv8R "To be fair though, that view from that guy at Ubisoft could be the view of quite a number at the company"
Yes but, so what if it is? I have that view myself, and I agreed with the original tweet. It isn't really relevant though because its just opinions from single employees. They don't hate Nintendo just because they have a criticism over one game they made.

I know Nintendo gets bad press for little reason, as do most companies. Hell, the irony here is that people are asking for sympathy for Nintendo getting bad press for no real reason, when that's exactly what happening to Ubisoft here.
