Gorlokk commented on Midora Developer Admits He Knew Kickstarter Fu...:

Why does a slightly upscaled Minish Cap need 60k anyway? Where does the money go? Programmers and artists? Well damn,they must be getting some pretty decent money in that case. What's wrong with just working on a game in your spare time? Is that not what they're doing even with the money?

I can't believe that nearly 90% of all gaming related Kickstarter projects have been such a let down. Even MN9 looks pretty lackluster. My only hope now is that Bloodstained is as good as the other CV games. I do have good faith in Yooka Laylee too, I'm just not as excited for that.



Gorlokk commented on Rumour: New Report Suggests That Konami Has Al...:

How depressing... I know we're getting Bloodstained, but it's really sad knowing that we'll probably never get a (good) Castlevania game ever again.
...Unless some competent devs get a hold of the IPs...

You know, it sucks, but at the same time, the things he said about localisation struck me as a little strange, and also made me a little depressed. Him coming out and saying stuff like that really discourages the rallying of fans to show support for games to get localised, at least in my opinion. What if we never got Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii? The new Xenoblade is getting a bundle set wit the Wii U, so Nintendo obviously sees at as a system seller, but we might have never gotten it if fans didn't make it known that we wanted the first Xenoblade. But maybe I'm wrong, I dunno, just sharing my thoughts.



Gorlokk commented on Chris Pranger From Nintendo Treehouse Discusse...:

I just don't know. If ATLUS of all people have the money to localize tons of niche games, why can't NINTENDO localize niche games? There's no way Atlus has more money than Nintendo, and the fact that Atlus keeps on localizing means they must be making a decent chunk of change off the titles they bring over. Now, as for voice acting, yeah that makes sense why it would be costly, but what about games that don't have voice acting? Or at least not much? for the most part, all that needs to be done as far as I know is translate the text. Yeah if you're going for a retail release that's gonna cost extra, but if it's REALLY that big of a gamble, then at least give us digital only.
Oh well. Mother 3 has no voice acting and even has a full translation so there's no excuse to not bring that over at least on Virtual Console.



Gorlokk commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

"...professional journalists who have played thousands of games previously simply aren't good enough to match Devil's Third"

Okay look, nothing against the fine people at Nintendo Life; I respect everyone here a lot, but from what I've personally seen over the last few years is that there are plenty of game journalists who aren't THAT good at games. If I recall correctly, most of the reviewers who weren't so impressed with The Wonderful 101 mentioned difficulty. I'm not trying to compare the quality of W101 with Devil's Third, nor am I disregarding legitimate flaws that you guys experienced with your preview. All I'm saying though is that there are definitely game journalists out there that aren't that good at games lol...



Gorlokk commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

Maybe it's Youtube, or maybe it's because I haven't played a lot of 'realistic' stylized games, but it seemed like the game ran well in the video. I still think it looks kind of fun, though I don't know if I can drop $60 on this.



Gorlokk commented on Feature: Our Tributes and Memories of Satoru I...:

It's still bothering me honestly. I know I should be playing something like Balloon Fight or EarthBound, but I gotta be honest; I haven't played any games for nearly two days now. I've been spending most of my free time saving pictures of Iwata and reading what everyone else has to say. It's kind of silly, sure, but the man means a lot to me as a big Nintendo fan. When you think about it, most fans know him better than many of the other big developers at Nintendo, so the loss hurts more. After all, he was the one who spoke DIRECTLY to us all. And yes, I am going to smile everytime I say directly, and everytime I see bananas. In fact, I'll make it a thing to gaze into all my bananas before I eat them.



Gorlokk commented on EarthBound Director Shigesato Itoi Pays Tribut...:

Someone else said it sounds like it's something straight out of the Mother series. Couldn't agree more. Itoi's posts are so beautifully written. The poem-esque post he made the day the news was released was very depressing, but also very... Pretty, in a way.

"Extinguish all the lamps in the world
Make a pitch-black night
With that powerlessness
Can you please just do that for me?"
That was a translation from Cheesemeister.



Gorlokk commented on Tributes and an Outpouring of Respect Are Shar...:

It almost feels worse today...
I gotta be honest though, I kind of like this sad feeling. It's just nice to see all gamers come together, even if only for a bit, and remember all the great things this man brought to us. Never before has the song "Smiles and Tears" from EarthBound fit into a situation more perfectly for me. That's why I've been listening to it on loop since yesterday hah...



Gorlokk commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

My friend asked me today "So did you hear that Iwata died?" and I felt a shock go through my body. Almost immediately after, a big smile spread across my face and the feeling started to fade away as I quickly replied "You're joking!"
...My smile didn't last long.
This is the first death that I'm having a hard time grasping that they're just gone. I've only been alive a relatively short time, but still. I'm more depressed than I'd like to admit.
He was one of a kind.



Gorlokk commented on Animal Crossing Series Director Explains the a...:

@Ryu_Niiyama I don't necessarily agree with the Mario Kart thing, or the Retro thing, but to a lesser extent. See, Mario Kart is taking the well-known Mario characters and putting them into a new genre, like Paper Mario/Mario&Luigi. Happy Home Designer is, essentially, one aspect of a mainline Animal Crossing experience ripped out and trying to be its own thing. In my eyes, a good Animal Crossing spin-off would be taking the established world and traits of AC and putting them into a new genre, say RPG, Racing (like Mario Kart. I know we already have Isabelle and Villy in MK8 but I'm just giving examples), or even something more 'risky' like a platformer or adventure game. Amiibo Festival fits into what I would want in a spin-off, but it had to be pretty much the worst possible genre lol. I feel like I can positively say that if instead of Amiibo Festival and/or Happy Home Designer we were getting an AC RPG similar to like, I dunno, Rune Factory, or a Adventure game where maybe you travel the 'unseen horizons beyond the village' with your favorite neighbor, or just... ANYTHING but a board game that requires amiibo, fans would be less upset. Maybe I'm wrong though. I know I'd be less upset.
As for Retro, I think the situation was that fans were still booty bothered by Other M and wanted a 'true' Metroid game, because we hadn't gotten one in awhile. I guess we still haven'tbut ANYWHo... Fans wanted something a bit different like Metroid, and I mean, most Nintendo fans probably weren't DYING for a new platformer like Donkey Kong when Nintendo pumps out NSMB like nothing. Another thing is that, knowing that Retro was working on DK meant that they probably weren't working on Metroid, so the announcement of DK solidified a 2+ year longer wait for Metroid Prime 4, unless someone else made it.

@DTFaux Whoa whoa whoa, wait a minute. Assuming that Animal Crossing Wii U followed the "clear cut example" of City Folk and ended up being a "lazy port," (of an actual mainline AC game) It would be LESS lazy than these two silly budget spin-offs! Furthermore, two shallow, lackluster spin-offs certainly risks "franchise burnout" more than one port.
No, here's what I'd like. I'd like Nintendo to not make lazy spin-offs like these and focus their effort on an actual AC for Wii U. Happy Home Designer should be a part of AC Wii U and quite frankly, Amiibo Festival shouldn't even exist.

@garthvader Boy, that would be simply splendid.



Gorlokk commented on Devil's Third Will Be Released In North Americ...:

Well geez that's uhh... Really uhh... Wow. Really makes me worried about how the game will actually be. It looked like a fair bit of fun to me, but if Nintendo won't publish THIS due to a lack of quality, then... Wow. I didn't know Nintendo had standards to begin with lol.



Gorlokk commented on Rumour: Former Rare Composer David Wise Is Wor...:

All I hope is that it isn't another Donkey Kong Country Returns game. I would also be against the idea of a new DKR game because we already have Mario Kart 8, but the original rumors I read about DKR2 said that it would feature lesser known Nintendo stars as the other characters, and honestly, that just sounds like a blast to me.



Gorlokk commented on ​Shigeru Miyamoto Defends Star Fox Zero's Co...:

Not gonna lie, I could never sit down and really enjoy Kid Icarus Uprising because of the controls, so I hope it isn't like that. The thing that bothered me the most about it is that the game just seemed so fun, I was almost enjoying myself only to try to do something that should be simple - like dodging (in air and on ground) and I would get hit errytime. Perhaps I just wasn't very good at the game, but it wasn't any fun trying to get better lol.



Gorlokk commented on Mercenaries Saga 2 Is The Closest You'll Get T...:

This doesn't look too bad... I think I'll pick it up. But uh, seriously, a real FF Tactics Advance for 3DS would be awesome. I LOVE the Tactics Advance games, and one of my favorite things about them is the different races you can have on your team like the bangaa and of course moogles. Looks like this game just has plain old humans. Oh well. It still looks good. They really nailed the art style of the Tactics games.



Gorlokk commented on Nintendo Didn't Mention Mobile At E3 2015 Beca...:

I wonder if Reggie heard the groans of Nintendo fans during their digital event. It's hard to believe Nintendo gets something like this right but failed so miserably and showed things like Metroid Soccer and Animal Crossing meets Mario Party with a side helping of Amiibo. Not to mention games that have been in the past, what, two E3s (Xeno and Yoshi)? It's even more frustrating knowing they have several projects they haven't revealed to us yet (plus all that Zelda footage). I gotta admit, I really like the idea of only showing games that are coming in the next 6 months or so, but their E3 needed more than that. It must be a new rule too, because some games (Like the two mentioned above) were certainly shown years away from release.

I'm sorry. I'm still a little booty bothered by Ninty's E3.



Gorlokk commented on Keiji Inafune Would Still Be Interested in Mak...:

It's interesting how Legends 3 keeps popping up in one way or another...

I know this is (of course) unlikely, but I have this gut feeling that at the very end of the 3DS's life, that we might get Legends 3 on it in some form.



Gorlokk commented on Fresh Details Emerge For Shin Megami Tensei X ...:

"The story involves two students who notice that the world is being attacked by supernatural beings. The duo become pop stars in order to combat these beasts," You gotta love Japan man. You don't get these concepts anywhere else.
