I think the AAA and Indies need to work together. Most big film studios have some kind of indie division where they give a bunch of unknowns a moderate budget and if they strike gold market the crap out of it. That's where Juno came from.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Nintendo Passing on PAX East 2014:

@Zach777 Usually the sort of comment I'd get mad at but you''re right. All the big games they got coming aren't in a demoable state. There's Bayonetta and X in the works but I think they're at the extensive debugging stage. Heck X is probably still in design stages.



Guybrush20X6 commented on "Dark And Edgy" Sonic The Hedgehog Film Report...:

Sonic and Serious have had a wonky relationship. Personally I find it works better when there's less humans. Sonic Adventure focused on the ancient Echidnas and you could've removed all the humans bar Robinik/Eggman without any plot impact. Sonic Adventure 2 had more plot important humans but all the important ones were linked to Eggman. Even the military used robots.

On to the bad games, Shadow the Hedghog had human decide the best defence against aliens was their weak fleshy bodies and had a grudge against Shadow based on the paranoia of their boss. I don't need to explain Sonic 06 so I'll just leave it at that.

Also the less allies Sonic has the better. Sonic and Tails' banter in Sonic Colors had more character than all the interactions with the throwaway characters.

I think the problem is parents are too content to just give their kids a phone and call it good. Kids need to be taught the joys of local multiplayer where if that kid called your mother horrible things she'd take him out by the ear and make him repeat what he said with his parents present.

I'm hopeful for the future. (Of games that is, otherwise the Ukraine situation has got me worried for a COD MW live action reenactment)

They should've done this from day 1.

Making Wii Sports and Wii Fit their experimental pricing games was a stupid move as it means there's no physical disk in the stores reminding people there's an HD Wii sports. People but the new Fifa game and all it has different is a number has gone up by one.



Guybrush20X6 commented on NPD Data Shows More U.S. Gamers Switching to D...:

I;m sticking to disk for the most part. Partially because the one time I did the game took up a large chunk of the WiiU's data. I tried buying an external hard drive but for whatever reason it only works with a powered one. Nintendo needs to fix that If I'm ever to download retail games.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Only Sell...:

Why does almost every sales article on this site have a negative tone to it? I understand the sales actually aren't too great but it gets tired. Even something like "Donkey Kong country Tropical Freeze number 2 in Japanese charts but fails to impact WiiU sales."?



Guybrush20X6 commented on Less Than 5% of Those Polled by the Game Devel...:

Smartphone games will always have one major problem, you have to put your greasy fingers in front of the action almost constantly. plus the 3DS and Vita doesn't get nearly as hot when handling anything more complex than a webpage.



Guybrush20X6 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

One thing Nintendo can do and it's a bit stupid that they're not is to convert more NES and SNES games to WiiU Virtual Console. And get started on Nintendo 64 ones. I'm sure a lotta current owners would willingly pay for save state enabled old games. I wonder how long the process takes in man- hours...
