HappyMaskedGuy commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

People buy tablets and IPhones not for the purpose of accessing specific content, but that these devices offer a fashionable means of accessing media which is fleetingly deemed by contemporary society as necessary or desirable. The mobile market only seems painfully obvious as the next logical avenue for Nintendo because it also seems the most easy- it is an incredibly volatile market dominated by consumers who demand not quality, but free use of the simplest possible content, often pirated material.
Nintendo would be foolish to step into this arena- as foolish as they would also be to not have considered doing so years ago.
I have faith in their business logic, and am delighted in their restraint concerning armchair business consultants, or demands from a market which has no real intention or purpose to invest should Nintendo pursue the mobile 'market'.

@jpfan1989 I can understand why people may be uncomfortable with the idea on paper- however these are not angels representative of any religion- they are a fictional creature called an Angel. Don't worry- there's no sacrilidge or blasphemy in the game. Bayonetta is actually one of the good guys lol

@jpfan1989 On what fence exactly? If you are worried it may not be your cup of tea, I emplore you to take the plunge- it's a fantastic game. Seems shallow, but actually harbours vast depth and sheer joy. Don't miss out on the chance to support it if you can. It would honestly be tragic if this game doesn't sell. If Nintendo is involved, you know it's gold ;)

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Feature: The Making of Rocket: Robot on Wheels:

I think the protagonist and packaging let the game down in terms of exciting the consumer. There also wasn't any marketing at all really. I own the game but haven't played through it, though I remember my cousin loving it. One thing I do take away from this article, that I have always loved about the N64, was that almost every game had its own engine, built from the ground up and that was trying to accomplish something. It made every title feel unique and organic. Nowadays I despair at the cookie cutter reliance on the Unreal engine. Games now may look different, but feel fundamentally the same. Detest it.
I miss the reign of the N64.

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

The Wii U is an online device, by it's very nature it is assumptive to the changes in its environment, namely updates. I'm all for anti materialism, yet Nintendo is the only company by my count offering both free online community services and backwards compatibility with Wii software.
My advice? Stop crying, and go complain about companies who deserve legitimate criticism.

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Nintendo UK Executive Says Wii U Has Had "Quit...:

Can't understand these people who constantly insist that a price cut will help the Wii U- it's far cheaper than its competitors already. Also the idea of 'ditching' the game pad is ridiculous. Dropping the consoles USP would not help it. The Wii U only needs to change people's attitudes, and it will sell. end of story.

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Video: You'll Be Able To Play As Metroid's Sam...:

This is pretty awesome, though I do worry that this cross contamination of different IPs could potentially water down and harm the integrity of their constituent parts- I don't want Link in Mario Kart, and I don't really eat Bayonetta dressing up as Fox, those annoy me. This is interesting, if they can pull it off. Maybe encourage Nintendo to think outside the box when it comes to evolving the Metroid formula? Samus suits chasing down big monsters, can't argue with that.....

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Nintendo 64x64: Turok 2:

@Genesaur You have no taste, if this is truly your belief.
I can understand criticisms levelled at its frame rate, but for its time, Turok 2 was pushing the boundaries of what was possible on any console, with workmanship and artistry that still holds solidly today.
Terrible? Really? Clearly you have not played it, or you don't understand a good game. I can name a good few 'classic' games that have fared far worse to time than this.
Try again, with eyes anew ;)

Couldn't give a flying monkey's about Minecraft. Instead if whining about not having an extremely overhyped Lego simulator, Wii U owners should be relishing the honour of having Bayonetta 2, touted as game of the year, as an exclusive to our system????
Keep your bloody Minecraft nonsense, its already going out of fashion anyways. I prefer my Wii U not be tainted by the whims of tablet jerks and spoilt children.

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Video: Volga Unleashes Flames of Justice in Hy...:

So what's the civilian verdict here on Hyrule Warriors? Worth investing? I need that extra wee push! With Smash Bros on 3DS and Wii U, not to mention Bayonetta on the imminent horizon, I'm struggling to justify buying this with regards to my crummy budget.

I am open to the concept of cash loans, by the way. TOTALLY good for it ;)

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Want Bayonetta 2 On PS4 And Xbox One? You Migh...:

@CaptainToad agreed- Nintendo could perhaps step in to revive beloved franchises that were carelessly scrapped by many big publishers in their race for obscene profits. It would certainly reinforce their philosophy of prioritising games and fun over trends and chasing the quickest buck.
There must be hundreds of oppurtunities in this sector, not necessarily the same model as Platinum and Bayonetta 2, but simply listening to the actual players of games and investing in the loyalty of an established fanbase. Nintendo- the games saviour! No no, THIS is for the players, Sonny ;)

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Nintendo@E3 2014 Community Now Live on Miiverse:

@Mr_Video Exactly- I'm predicting the things you wouldn't expect nintendo to do at E3, because we all know from bitter experience that nintendo almost never unveil what we want or expect from them! Lol.

Perhaps a direct sequel to Link Between Worlds? Or Majoras Mask Part 2? Hey you, Raichu?
Some lessons for the Art Academy Sketchpad would be nice...

A big part of the West's presentation will be Tomodachi Life I bet.

Then we can all slump bak into a resigned sense of underwhelmed-ness.

Love E3 ;)

@Luna-Harmony I've got my fingers crossed for some Metroid, and I am also confidently predicting an unveiling of Twilight Princess HD.

Also an extra series of downloadable cups for Mario Kart 8, hopefully including both N64 Banshee Boardwalk and Bowsers Castle.

And Smash Bros Melee HD, purrdy p-p-p-please? :)

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Nintendo@E3 2014 Community Now Live on Miiverse:

I think it's a great thing. The Wii U has a strong online community spirit, a shared enthusiasm, more so than any of the other consoles- comparitively barren, soulless deserts of bashing each other's mamas.

Rock on with the intelligent, nonsensical and downright dumb expectations for Nintendo at E3!

HappyMaskedGuy commented on Weirdness: Luigi's Mario Kart 8 'Death Stare' ...:

Why is everyone getting so hung up on the fact it isn't Fox News? Plenty of people have already pointed out as much in the comments- aye, journalistic accuracy is important, but big woo, it isn't Fox Network News. Who cares? :/

No need to repeat what others have said already. Read the other comments first perhaps? It's good manners, yo ;)

Clearly the Wii U is still DOOOOMED...

Haha, those Nintendo cynics never cease to amaze me with their ability to grossly underestimate the greatest gaming company ever (and evermore).

All who bashed the Wii U, please get off this planet. You are all fools of the highest caliber.
