Jayvir commented on Report Suggests That June Could Be Crucial For...:

I wouldn't mind seeing Iwata go. He did some good things for Nintendo but he just isn't working magic any more. The only issue I'd have with a replacement is that idiotic mobile mentality that these investors have. It's just playing catch up. If people are complaining that Nintendo was too late to the HD era or with such-and-such piece of hardware... how is this mobile focus supposed to be any different? They should focus on trying to find the next big thing, not trying to catch up with the previous one.

Jayvir commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

Even with the porn industry, and everyone's lack of caring for the actresses in that media, they'll pick on a video game? These games have every right to exist. Just because you don't agree or like it, it doesn't mean that everything in the vein should cease to continue. If you don't like it, don't buy it, don't pay attention to it. The vast majority of the vocal feminists are pathetic people and what they lobby for is not equal rights between male and female.

Jayvir commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

If people are against the sex appeal of women and are offended by big breasts, then people should be completely offended by the standard male image in games. They are usually a spiky haired, hulked out manly man with super muscles. There is objectification of both sexes. Everyone just seems to eager to ignore one side.

I need some quality proof of concept. Ideas ALWAYS sound good in planning. Until I see something concrete, I don't really care, especially from a no-name developer with no past. At least they have a very well presented website

The fact that people are ignoring the 3DS for the Vita but likewise aren't doing the same for Wii U shows definite bias for Nintendo. The 3DS is the absolute dominant console on the market and yet these third parties will waste their cash trying to revive it. Of course, they won't even try to release a single game on Wii U...

It would be interesting if they actually tied it into a motion bar so you didn't have a hunk of plastic that really didn't need to be used. Ambient light is kinda cool, but I get the feeling that it really wouldn't be used at all. I can't imagine any situation where you'd absolutely HAVE to have it.

Jayvir commented on "Phantom Gate" Trademark By Nintendo, Game Fre...:

I used to like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon but Gates to Infinity really turned me off. They could really make it much more interesting. NIS released A Guided Fate Paradox which is VERY much the same type of game but they did so much more with it. I don't want to sit in front of an enemy and attack it twice to win. Even bosses like Kyurem in GTI were pathetic. Yup, because my level 40 Oshawott should TOTALLY be able to KO a Kyurem.

Team Meat kinda has an big of an ego and they think they are hot s*** now. I have both Super Meat Boy and Binding of Isaac, but honestly, they aren't even the top games in the genre they are in. They are pretty good, but hardly enough to get all high and might about.

Jayvir commented on Nintendo's Slump "Could Be Detrimental" To The...:

I think Sony and Microsoft especially have really struggled to appeal to the whole family. Viva Pinata on the 360 was a great game and Microsoft REALLY tried to make that work. It just didn't catch though. Same thing with the Kinect junk.

Sony used to have Jak, Ratchet and Sly, but those are more aimed at a teenager audience especially considering the direction they drifted. All they really have is the rapidly declining Little Big Planet. They really have no big name to dangle over the entire family that appeals to all bases. Nintendo is really the only company capable of doing that at the moment. I think Sony sees this and they might be worried that they won't be able to deal in both markets

Jayvir commented on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Reduced to $19.99 on...:

@K-Gamer
Just watching a video doesn't do it justice. I never understood it, nor did I find it very interesting to watch. The game looks clunky and slow... mostly because it's INTENTIONALLY so. I found that out as soon as I played MH3U. It took a bit to understand it all, but after 2 or 3 big monsters, it all started to click and I really started to enjoy it. Granted, I'm only 10 hours in or so, but the principles are roughly the same. They don't want you blindly attacking, so they give most weapons a devastating windup and a long cool down afterwards to make sure you know when to strike and when to avoid. You need to play very carefully. A video doesn't show that all too well.

Man, I already have MH3U on the Wii U, but wouldn't be apposed to getting it on 3DS as well. However, I can't spare the funds as I have a couple games coming out this month (Donkey Kong and Tales of Symphonia Chronicles)

Jayvir commented on Kickstarter Research Highlights Low Delivery R...:

This is why I only back projects that have proof of concept or are by bigger names like Mighty No. 9. To be fair though, I have 8 projects on Kickstarter and as of yet, none of them have launched, although Shovel Knight is close.

Jayvir commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's 'Relevance' Is Abou...:

I'm fairly convinced that even if Nintendo did everything right, that they would still be in the same boat as they are now. Look how many people go on and on about "colorful immature kiddy games". It's the reputation that Nintendo has that is killing them, not necessarily the missteps in hardware/software.

Jayvir commented on Review: Unepic (Wii U eShop):

I picked this up and was pleasantly surprised. It was either this, NES Remix or Dr. Luigi, but seeing as UnEpic was cheaper I naturally went with that

Yes, Nintendo WOULD make more money by putting their games on smartphones/tablets. But then again, so would EVERY gaming company. Nintendo is a hardware manufacturer. Putting their software on those smart devices would just further jeopardize their hardware.

Jayvir commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Struggles Brin...:

Nintendo needs to break open that war chest and pay to get games on the console. The thing they did with Bayonetta 2? Needs to happen a LOT more. Pump out games like Star Fox and F-Zero, despite the fact that they aren't as popular as Mario. A million sales is still good so long as you budget properly for it. All in all, variety is key for software. The more variety a console has, the more likely more people are to purchase the console. Bring a unique and varied offering you can't get anywhere else. Mario and Zelda is a good start, but we need more of those promised games like SMT x FE, X, Bayonetta 2 and more surprises.

Jayvir commented on Satoru Iwata Explains Reduced Projections and ...:

@datamonkey Agreed. Their goals were way to ambitious for a struggling console.

Iwata's position is not in jeopardy. The only way he loses his job is if he steps down. The only way he will step down is if he finds someone that he thinks will do more good for Nintendo in the long run than he will. Yamauchi stayed in the company for years after he nearly drove the company into the ground through the N64 era. He only stepped down because he felt he was too old.

Jayvir commented on Nintendo Confirms Major Reductions In Sales an...:

I think they were being a little too ambitious in setting such high goals. The 3DS is selling incredibly well, and to think they wanted more? The Wii U is almost (finally) starting to see some sales pick up but it's gonna be a slow ride from here on out. I wouldn't expect such a drastic change any time soon.

Nintendo won't "go third party" or abandon the Wii U. More than likely, they'll restructure their company (already did with combining handheld/console teams) and Iwata really needs to figure stuff out. Drag the Wii U along for another couple years and release what they need to in order to break even this generation. Focus on the next console and make sure it really hits the mark. If they can release a console that can outdo the PS4 and XB1 AND comes out 2-3 years before their successor does, Nintendo might do fine.

I'm glad someone is sticking to their vision. So many producers/developers/publishers cave to social pressure and compromise their games vision by tweaking too many things that probably didn't need to be changed.

Jayvir commented on Monolith Soft Lists "Urgent" Job Postings, Inc...:

@Genesaur I love Baten Kaitos but having your cards expire (Fire, water, food needed particular qualities and would degrade over time) right before you made the right combination was kinda annoying. Didn't play Origins, but I heard it was much better.

Jayvir commented on Monolith Soft Lists "Urgent" Job Postings, Inc...:

If they allowed multiplayer in Xenoblade, the game really wouldn't have changed considering you only controlled one character at a time. As long as it's just multiplayer quests or side campaign, then I'll be fine with it. I just don't want to be gimped in playing because I choose to not play with other people

Jayvir commented on Western Version Of Bravely Default Features Co...:

This doesn't change the game AT ALL, so no one should really give a damn. Considering that there are a LOT of people in the US that would throw a fit at the slightest hint of skin being shown, I can understand why SE would err on the side of caution

Jayvir commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

As much as I would like to play Smash, I'm more interested in X, simply because of how fantastic Xenoblade was. It seriously was my favorite RPG of all time, and that's saying a lot considering I've been playing RPGs since the 80s. A cannot wait to sink 100s of hours into that epic and juicy piece of gaming goodness.

Jayvir commented on Video: Persona Q Website Shows New Footage:

This game really interests me seeing as I enjoyed both SMT and Persona, but I really REALLY wish they didn't go the chibi route. It's just conflicting so much with what I've come to know and expect from Persona.

@Zhenya They surely aren't a second party to Sony, seeing as they've released a couple games on Nintendo consoles recently (Tekken) and they've been neck-deep in Super Smash Bros development with Sakurai. They are just releasing a lot for Sony because it's the dominant console at the moment.

Jayvir commented on Zelda Unveiled as New Smash Bros. Challenger:

She definitely looks a lot less innocent than what she did previously, especially compared to the Skyward Sword look. She really looks like she's gonna kick some donkey. I really wish they'd make Tetra and the other Zeldas as skins. Same with Link. Just make Toon Link an alternate skin and save the roster slots.
