Jmaster commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

Games that make a joke about being terrible can be funny now and then, but only, ONLY when said game is free. No exceptions.
A good example is this. Terrible, self-aware and funny for ten minutes at the most, but also free.



Jmaster commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

@Light Your comment made it seem like you think even the smallest improvement over its predecessor would make it better than that predecessor, even if they take six years actually implementing it. Anyway we do seem to be on the same page indeed, I really don't understand why people would give it an A+, implying it's perfect. It objectively isn't.



Jmaster commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

@Light Really? That's your logic? Of course every console is going to improve on its predecessor, but that doesn't make it overall better! It has to actually be a big improvement over the previous one, otherwise they could launch a new console every week and clock the processor one hertz higher every time, and it'd still be 'the best Nintendo console ever' by your logic.

I give it a C, without accounting for sales. The OS is still slow and looks childish, the online functionality is still from 2005, and the hardware is still enormously limiting from a consumer's perspective. It's the games that save it.



Jmaster commented on Mario Kart 8 Update & DLC Scheduled for 27th A...:

@unrandomsam ever heard of the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon? Basically, it's when you hear/read about something, and all of a sudden you start seeing it often. I think that's what happened with you, you heard about the double 64th frame-bug and convinced yourself you noticed it. Then, being the half-troll you are, blew it up as the game being 'broken' in your conquest for responses on unreasonable complaints you have about Mario Kart 8.



Jmaster commented on Mario Kart 8 Secures Place as Top-Selling SKU ...:

@jrob23 You are right about the sales, MK8 really need to give a bigger bump, and the one that it did gave won't last long.
Only, expecting a new console by 2017 it's unrealistic, especially if they're to actually give it some launch titles. With the ever increasing development cycles of videogames, creating a console in five years is near-impossible, especially for Nintendo. Also, do you expect MS and Sony to replace the Xbone and PS4 within 4 or 5 years? Ridiculous!
Anyway, I think it'll be holiday 2018 at the soonest, with MS and Sony taking another year. As for the 3DS' successor, 2017 or even 2016 does seem more realistic.



Jmaster commented on First Impressions: Throwing Down in Shigeru Mi...:

I think we all need to remember that these aren't demos of full games, they're IDEAS. They might make a collection of robot-themed minigames, or put them as missions in Starfox (like the Landmaster in SF64/Lylat Wars). Who knows?



Jmaster commented on Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is ...:

@AcesHigh73 problem Solved? It's just create more problems!
We're talking about the Wii Remote here. A device that tracks movement in three dimensions. There's no way a tocuhscreen or analogue stick could replicate that, as they only track two dimensions. But say they only do it for Mario Galaxy, then you would still need three hands. One for the left stick, one for pressing A or whatever would make you jump, and one for either moving a cursor with an analogue stick (which is already horrible) and awkwardly shaking it every five seconds, or constantly blocking the GamePad-screen. It would ruin the entire game!
Now I don't want to sound pessimistic, but when you think it through, you'll find SMG was MADE for the Wii Remote. No other controller could replace it.



Jmaster commented on Wii U Reportedly Uses Less Energy to Run Than ...:

And nobody questions why? The Wii U's processor has a much LOWER clockspeed than those of BOTH the Xbox 360 and PS3. This makes porting games over all the more complicated, slows down the OS, and makes it difficult to program for, thereby increasing the time it takes to create games. All to make the console smaller and more energy-efficient.

Somebody please fire the people who thought that was a good idea...



Jmaster commented on Satoru Iwata Announces 'Nintendo Figurine Plat...:

While I find this a good idea, I have some questions before I decide to get in:
1. What will the price of the figurines and the reader/writer for 3DS be?
2. Which / how many games will support it?
3. Will you be forced to buy figurines to play these games or are they like DLC?
4. How many will there be?
5. Will you be able to see which one you're buying from the package? I have nobody to trade potential doubles with.
I'll wait for answers, then I'll judge
