@Turbo857 Tier lists take a long time to compile, so that's more a credit to the number of characters in the game than its balance.

As for the casual vs. pro garbage, both sides have their share of infantile whiners who are insecure about the way they play the game and feel the need to get defensive every time it comes up in conversation. Play what you like, how you like it, with no reservations. Stop telling others how best to enjoy their entertainment.

HylianJowi commented on Review: Heptrix (Wii U eShop):

@BearClaus I would agree, except I believe that developers who truly enjoy making games always try to bring something of their own to the table. This doesn't guarantee their game will be a masterpiece, but they try nevertheless. With this recent influx of shovelware, I feel there's absolutely no effort involved at all. These are, at best, C-grade homework assignments from a beginner's class in game design.

I firmly believe that the worst game driven by passion will always be more interesting than the best cynical cash-in. At least then you're given the opportunity to wonder what motivated the creation. Here, I know pretty much exactly what motivated it — the need for attention and the chance to make a quick buck off of someone else's idea.

This really articulates every single concern I've had about amiibo since day one. I like to remain cautiously optimistic, but I feel like we're seeing a Wii U 2.0 here; too many questions and not enough answers. As a hardcore fan, I'm sure I'll get the answers — but there's no way casual fans are going to dedicate themselves enough to finding such information. :c

I can't shake the feeling this game is going to be a major disappointment for people who haven't played the Warriors series before. Online multiplayer would have been a wonderful addition to a game like this — though considering Nintendo's woefully limited options for players to communicate with each other while playing online, it makes sense that it's excluded.

HylianJowi commented on Bravely Second Shows Off New City and Job Outfits:

While I think the first one was a deeply flawed experience, it showed enough potential — and I got enough enjoyment out of it — to more than warrant continued interest in the series. I'm looking forward to seeing how they update the experience in this game. :D

Sigh. It's a tabloid, the only type of publication now known exclusively for irresponsible sensationalist journalism. To me, the best medicine for this kind of misinformation is education on the real facts — any attention the Sun gets is positive for them.

It's not going to be a masterpiece, but it'll be a nice bit of schlock to hold us over until Zelda U. I'm glad @Damo is establishing the right set of expectations to go in with; Zelda hasn't had a knockoff fanservice-y game like this yet, so some people might be crushed.
