If memory serves, this brings the roster to 29 meaning that there only 6 slots left since irc they were to have the same number of characters as they did in Brawl. I just hope that I get to play the Cap'n again.

Hamguar commented on Subtle Character Design Changes Spotted for No...:

Eh, it's a non-essential change; nothing to fuss about. Personally, I like the newer one. Undo the braid and basically the guy's got a mullet, nature's most hated hair styles. Guy looks looks a futuristic Joe Dirt.

Hamguar commented on Rusty's Real Deal Baseball Has Some Interestin...:

Well the one thing I learned is that apparently Japanese dogs age far more horribly and old western dogs are toasted 24/7. Both are terrifying in their own way. Still, kinda interested in the game and seeing how well I can haggle Creeps McGruff.

Hamguar commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

All I got from this was bed wetter pissing on about some poor experience then like the greatest of non-genuses and proceed to show AAA immaturity and needlessly burn bridges. At best, just another FEZ whiner. Yes he should feel bad for getting crapped on hard by EA, who wouldn't, but the foolishness he displayed afterwards is all on him.

Should have taken a page from Inafune. As far as I know, he has not openly pissed himself over Capcom and knowing Capcom's rep with it's employees he very well could have tons to grip about and didn't. He just left and did something constructive about his situation rather than crying on Twitter like a Middle School tween.

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

Well to those who have the time to game hard that does seem to not bode well. But the last year plus of my gaming was consumed hardcore by Monster Hunter 3U and Pokemon X I still have every other game out already to tide me over heck I still have to go out and get a bunch. Any Lull would be welcoming for me. I seriously need to catch up.

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

@Fazermint
That is exactly what I was thinking. This biggest issue with people developing games for nintendo systems IS the fact that we buy Nintendo games both in type and quality. I, like many others who are accustomed to buying things that actually work, won't buy POS games that seem to be flooding the market. This is not to say Ninty hasn't made it's fair share of piles or needed patches as well, but still for the most of it I've only seen a genuine desire to actually TRY to make quality games come from Nintendo and a select few developers/indies, to which I gladly fund and support. Most of those there are rank and file independants looking to make the most while doing the least, hence why they all gravitate to PC/Smartphone drivel.

Hamguar commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

@gatorboi352

You are only looking at half the problem. Yes there are those that only seek 1st party, but then you have to ask yourself why? No one just flippantly decides this or anything really, there is purpose to all action. Experience shows us that most 1st party only people are jaded from the vast amount of shovelware produced and peddled to them. Heck you only have to look at the lunacy of ME3 on wii u while they also released a full trilogy on all other systems at the same time. All in all it's an unending cycle. 3rd party half assing games and Nintendo fans showing no interest or support as a result which in turns goads them to try even less or simply pull support. The solution is that 3rd partys need to stop with these half hearted attempts and make an effort in what they send over to the Wii U AND Nintendo needs to build some bridges with 3rd party. Both sides need to own up and do some work for this nonsense to stop.

@Karakato Too late for that.
Anywho, If she does her job without any political chicanery or playing the gender card then what the hey. But given that it is implied that she was given the position via nepotism(if true a valid complaint) and there is no real experience with the product(also valid) then it doesn't look good so far.

Honestly, I can't see why even the whole SJW nonsense is even a thing. If people want equality then do so with your actions. Words are cheap and plentiful. In the similar vein of Morgan Freeman's solution to racism, just stop. Trust me, it really does work. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2d2SzRZvsQ

Hamguar commented on Monster Hunter 4 Has Shipped Over Four Million...:

@Wolf_Link
Yikes! I hope not digital only. I would have to pass up on it. I'm a physical copy kinda guy. Heck it's the same reason I want nothing to do with Ace DD. The fact that in most circumstances you do not own the game and that it is tied to a system/cloud is appalling to me. I'm not one to pay for a game that dies with a system or is in a cloud that is supported at the whims of a company. If a system breaks you can replace it no big issue, but if as it stands if the system breaks then you are out the system and, for some people, upwards to thousands of dollars needlessly.

Hamguar commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Safe and Family-Frie...:

@AugustusOxy
You know swinging to an extreme POV you dislike in an attempt to discredit said point of view is foolish and does little to serve in bringing people across to your side. This is hardly is a heavy handed as it is made to be.

Sending lewd pics to underage kids is really messed up stuff and a serious offence in most countries. We can say all we want about how Nintendo essentially napalmed the situation, but in all honesty I rather focus my frustration on the brain trust that thought it genius to send vulgar crap to lil runties and ruined the service for all of us because frankly they are the ones who truly are to blamed for this debacle. I just hate the fact that we have to be nannied because certain people just can't show some sense of responsibility.

I just hope that this is either replaced by miiverse or reinstituted in some form soonish.

Hamguar commented on Junichi Masuda Confirms That Over Ten Million ...:

The only thing that irks me is that it doesn't filter via ability, nature, and items. And given that you can only get certain pokemon by trading for them while they hold said item is kinda frustrating. I should be able to put up a scyther with a metal coat and not have someone trade me a scyther with nothing. Of course that pokemon was mild considering how hard it was to find someone who was honestly and truly trading a poliwhirl with king's rock and swift swim. Personally, when I put up pokemon for trade, I try to make sure they are breed optimally sans that whole IV jargle.

Hamguar commented on EA's Financial Figures Reveal Dismal Wii U Sof...:

You need to spend money to make it EA. Giving us inferior ports, half-butted "sequels" and what is essentially trash and call them legitimate games is an insult to our intelligence and a testimony to yours. That 1.3 percent is generous considering the non-effort you've made.

Hamguar commented on Rayman Legends Lands With A Thud At Japanese R...:

or it's the 'genius' of releasing it when Monster Hunter 4 and Pokemon XY is out and still very fresh. Hell there's even GTA V. I simply feel bad for any relatively unknown game coming out around now, granted Rayman is far from unknown. I know I would only have so much time to dedicate to games and all three would suck it all up. As was said before, waiting this long was poor judgement.

Hamguar commented on UK Retailers Break Release Date for Pokémon X...:

@Link41x They may be, but that depends on UK's laws and Nintendo's desire to press for it. I know here in the US there are stiff penalties. Where I work if we get reported for breaking release it can be from a 5,000-10,000 fine and most likely someone's job.

Hamguar commented on Assassin's Creed IV DLC Looks Set to Sail Past...:

I'll be honest, I've not really given a flying hornswaggler about DLC since it is ubiquitous trash. Which in of itself is truly a shame as DLC conceptually is a good idea.

SO essentially what this article is telling me is that they are not going to bother taking a dump on us with overpriced dross that easily could be in the game originally seeing as they already have all the DLC pre-made.

I'm more concerned of those that keep funding this poor habit and encouraging this insult to gaming, and frankly common sense, know as DLC.

@ajcismo good stuff! Just take your time and pace yourself. It is a bit slow starting but when you get to your first large monster you will be in for a helluva time. Personally I love hunting Zinogre. From music to his moves it is a battle of epicness. Only game I've logged in 800+ hours and still get that itch to play even after this break i'm taking.

Hamguar commented on Shin'en: If Developers Can't Make Great Lookin...:

@Rafie On point here, there really is no need for worthless console parading. Just have fun and enjoy one or all of them. Personally, I'm set and very happy on my Wii U purchase. I've been using it regularly and look forward to the games that are coming out and already out.

I have a friend who for some reason kept getting on me for liking the Wii and that the 360 is way better and all that rot. I look at him and bluntly said I really don't give a damn about his opinion. I have a large library I enjoyed it was the first console I played so much that I wore it out and had to get a second. The 360/PS3 had offered me nothing good or innovating to enjoy. To me, graphics mean squat if you do not have a good game to go with it.

In all seriousness, If you like the 360/PS3 and their successor then good, enjoy them, but if you piss and whine over people liking the Wii U or, heaven forbid, not liking the PS4/XBOne then I hate to say, you have an entirely different problem. Most likely people foolishly put their sense of self worth in a piece of equipment, and frankly that's just sad and messed up. No person should derive their value on any of this console nonsense. Play your fav or favs and be happy. Anyone's opinion really should not have the power to steal your fun in gaming. But given the response from some people it seems to be not the case.

Hamguar commented on Atlus Reaches Out to Fans Regarding Acquisitio...:

As was stated before, I'm not as concerned of Atlus' games as I am of localization. Yay for business as usual for now, just keep it that way and not play horde all IPs in Japan and we all will be at ease. Truth be told, everyone won't fully be satisfied until we see Atlus' future games head westward as usual.

@ russellohh If it helps, look at it as an alternate universe where nature is ultra hyper aggressive to the point that the BEST humanity can hope for society-wise is the hunter/gatherer/stone age era as the normal fauna have the capability of wiping out entire villages by just existing. Heck the Deviljho is basically an ecosystem devouring fiend.

Man If I didn't get Monster Hunter 3 U at launch I totally would now. Even so I've logged in 800+ hours and only now just started my little hiatus, although I kinda miss playing it. It really is worth your money if you haven't gotten it yet.

Hamguar commented on DuckTales: Remastered Coming to Retail on Wii ...:

Well from what I can fathom, they could have done this seeing that a fair amount of potential fans are old school hence are more inclined to want to truly own the game rather than just licence it. Or maybe there was a fair number of people writing to Capcom about the desire to buy a physical version of the game.

To those that are frustrated in hearing this after they bought a digital like it was stated before it is cheaper and at the time you did justify it was worth purchasing. Just as we have no obligation to buy anything they are just as much to make such a product at anytime they please. No one is owed anything, period. Does it suck? absolutely. Should you be upset? I would be. I guess I'm just trying to keep perspective before anyone says something silly and self-entitled. Then again, who is to say that because of all the digital purchases that it prompted them to go retail. In that case I greatly thank you all who did make the purchase to show them that it is worthwhile to do this and even help them to bring other classics back, or at least prompt them to give more work to Wayforward, which is an amazing company. Personally, I would love to see the second one and The Rescue Rangers remastered.

Hamguar commented on Sega Sammy Acquires Atlus Parent Company Index...:

My biggest concern ,as previously stated, is that Sega's localization track record is abysmal. I do not know if it will bleed over to Atlus, but already from their statement in the acquisition they are not keen on leaving them alone to to what they do.. PC? SMT Pachinko? I honestly think they very likely will be gutting the goose that lays the golden egg as much as I hate to admit it.

Hamguar commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ships Over Two Million Copies...:

@DerpSandwich Simply put, It's the perfect system for the biggest Monster Hunter consumers. 3DS is far more popular and convenient to Japanese life style since they all live so closely together and are on the go. You'll find that it would be silly for them not to, it really is the perfect marriage. Here in the States or honestly just about everywhere else due to how much more spread out people are compared to Japan and that we take the the time just to game; consoles tend to fair better to our lifestyle. Personally would like an HD version eventually, but for now just making it over to the rest of the world is my desire.

Hamguar commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ships Over Two Million Copies...:

@Windy It is not bankrupt per se, but they have about 152 million in funds. Which by videogame company standards is really, really low. And to be honest, their stuff has not been selling well save for monster hunter and a few titles that broke even. Saddle that with how much they lost in most of their big name games, most notably the latest resident evil. and that sums up how they got here. That said, they can still make a big turn around, but they really need to spend wisely and they need their philosophy on game making(i.e. no AAA money sink games)

I would totally be in on this. I just hope Capcom doesn't play legal bully given some of the concept art I do hope that isn't the case. That said, if they do I suggest the community totally got ape spit on Capcom. I, like many others, am frankly tired of their antics legal or otherwise.

Hamguar commented on Nintendo Has "Nothing To Announce" Regarding M...:

I didn't see a denial at all. You have to realized that for a living people like Reggie have to be mindful of what they say, and they know what they are saying. All he had said was that Nintendo has nothing to announce on it. Not a No or even a maybe, just nothing to say now. I sincerely hope though that will change in the near future though.

Hamguar commented on Review: Rayman Legends (Wii U):

@moomoo
I certainly won't deny myself this game, especially since the wifers is interested but as of now I have 6-7 games that I'm playing. Just as others have said even when the game was first announced to be delayed, there will be a whole heck of a lot of things that be on gamers plates this time of year, and that doesn't even account for your normal life stuff like bills, food, and such. I do hope now that it does well for the sake of Ancel and his staff but it may be tough in this wake of gaming goodness that is upon us.

I like to have my cake and eat it too. Def hoping for some MonHun localization AND a new Megaman announcement for the 3DS. I feel that he would best fit the handheld model ala MM Zero and all his old school goodness in MM and MMX.

@SuperKMx
True, but lets be honest. The launch titles of any system are mediocre at best with the chance of one or two being decent to great games. In fact, the only launch I've seen with more than a couple of great games was the Dreamcast. I do agree that he shouldn't be so flippant but then again it could be sincere confidence, or your run of the mill miscommunication we all get from not seeing their reaction first hand.
