Guybrush20X6 commented on Poll: Nintendo's Free-to-Play Experiments - Ar...:

I'm ok with the free to play model. I like the badge game as if I have any cash left over from adding an eshop card and buying a game I can use it.

What I hated about Shuffle though was how it abused my completionist ways by restricting certain pokemon to timed events and even then only gave them out to very few players, a transparent attempt to get you to spend money to get everything. It just put me RIGHT off it.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

I suspect the NX will be like the Virtual Boy and original DS were, an experimental third line. In the VB's case it didn't work out so was forgotten, the DS on the other hand was a success and thus supplanted the GBA line.

Let's see how it does this time.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Review: LEGO Dimensions (Wii U):

As overpriced as the toys are, ironically enough, it's the cheepest way to get a simpsons minifig now they stopped selling the blind packs (where I live at least)



Guybrush20X6 commented on Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Exposé Reveals Torrid St...:

Wow, a lot of the "Nintendo should die" people are out in force in the comments. It's not a uniquely Japanese thing but we hear about it a lot because most games companies of note are Japanese or American.

For all it's other flaws Capcom has been good at listening to American fans (i.e. working in Bison's imfamous Tuesday line) while other ones almost completely disregard them, despite them being the biggest buyers. Look at what happened to Sega. The stupid internal rivalry between american and janaese branches killed the Saturn and the Japanese side pulled the plug on the American branch's Sonic development because they dare to use the NiGHTs engine.

Not to mention jettisoning all of the American Sonic Canon bar Robotnik being made into Eggman's real name.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

I don't think fans should be accused of entitlement. Cemanding it should be cancelled is a bit far but we all know those petitions do hardly anything. It's more a way to vent fustration.

Whoever wrote the script for the Direct this year is to blame. A lot of the games with negative reception could have been better if presented right, for instance, say that the Animal Crossing party game was free with amiibo or establish why Federation Force is even a thing.

Guybrush20X6 commented on First Impressions: Kicking Off With Metroid Pr...:

@GraveLordXD IT seems to be a big problem with the game industry, letting their B tier or A minus Tier games go to waste despite obvious demand. Mega Man, Castlevania, Banjo Kazoie... All go to the point theat the original creators jumped ship and started their own. With Blackjack and Hookers as stretch goals.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts wasn't a bad game but it did poorly because it was seen as a bait and switch. What didn't help was Rare's self depreciating humour in game coming off as an insult to anyone who expected a platformer.



Guybrush20X6 commented on First Impressions: Kicking Off With Metroid Pr...:

I think they should have been bolder and made the game it's own thing. Adding on the Metroid name only hurts it as it is now subject to the Nuts and Bolts effect. i.e. Banjo-Kazooie: N&B was a good game, but because of the expectations attached it just angered fans and killed the series.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

Really? No spoiler warning? No vague headline of "next characters found in code of Smash patch"? Just out there in the ***** open? Thanks for killing tomorrow's reveal for me.

Oh, and Rosebud was the Sled, Vader is Luke's Father and Bruce Wayne is Batman.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

So far it's Zelda, Metroid and F-Zero in the lead for Live-Action with the rest as animation.

As for character voices I don't think a talking Link would be as terrible as everyone thinks but I think he'd work best as a quiet type character that foes keep underestimating.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

Even if you remove all the murder, incest and bewbs, Game of Thrones and Zelda are nowhere near on the same level. Zelda is about the adventure of one kid/man settign out to stop an all powerful evil. GOT is about power grabs while ignoring there is an incoming force. Unless the whole thing is the part of Ocarina of Time when everyone sat on their thumbs while Ganon cursed everyone.



Guybrush20X6 commented on GameStop Source Suggests That Super Mario amii...:

I'm wondering if there'll be a second wave with the rest of the playble cast of MP10. That would be DK, Wario, Rosalina (sans Luma), Waluigi, Toadette and Daisy. I think this'll be the first Mario Party since DS without a random enemy as a character.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

Still it's better than Resi 5. Not talking about the first levels where you happen to be playing a white guy shooting zombies that happen to be in Africa but the later levels where you fight infected tribesmen sterotypes. But as Yahtzee said it's not a true offence as not being aware, "Capcom ins't evil, they're just stupid!"



Guybrush20X6 commented on Talking Point: What's Next For amiibo?:

Looking at Trap Team what I would want is a Pokeball amiibo that can hold the data of one pokemon from your game. And it should come with a pokemon already in it like Pokeball pattern Villion.
