Kalmaro commented on Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS):

@Rei7
Speak for yourself. I have done just fine with this game in the past just by tapping the lock-on button. Monster Hunter vets from the older games don't typically worry about controls that much since they are fine for the most part.

So them making controls even BETTER this time around is very nice.

@Yorumi I've seen more than a few let's plays without commentary. They're easy to find to, just search for "no commentary" and you'll find hundreds. After that you're basically just watching someone playing a game for you. I do it all the time when it's a game with lines I don't want to miss.

I'm al for people doing let's plays, especially for people like me who are broke and can't afford the games. Nintendo should just be compensated in some way too since it's their product.

@Yorumi Even the example of a parody there's a difference. In a parody you're only really showing a part of the original artist's work. The music is sometimes the same (or often not, I've heard parodies where even the music is changed just a little) but the lyrics are different. thus it's not really the same song.

Showing gameplay footage of an entire game however is just that, you're showing everything that the developers worked on. Nothing is altered to protect the people who worked on the game in the first place, you're just showing everything and making a profit.

Stealing? Maybe in a sense. You're essentially stealing the work they've done to make a buck. That's why Nintendo is making these agreements in the first place.

Smash 4's online is just fine, all depends on who you are playing against really

The level creation was a fantastic addition that really gave players a way to express what they would like a level to look like. Hard to really go wrong with that.

The altered mechanics that the two latest games made helped the battles flow better if you asked me. Being able to dodge in the air more than once ment that certain characters wouldn't be overpwered do to just pushing you off the edge with ease, while also making aerial battles faster and much more entertaining to look at.

Custom moves is another huge thing that smash 4 gives us. We may be able to unlock chars with ease but custom moves I think is something that's also worthwhile to collect. Plus we have a classic mode that's a lot more interesting.

@TheRegginator

Smash 64 didn't really have anything the other games lack to be honest.

Melee was better for making unlocking characters much more entertaining.

Brawl was decent and gave use a way to creat levels and mixed up the gameplay

Smash 4 finetunes the gameplay further, gives or more characters in HD, smarter AI to beat up on (Amiibo rock) and quite a bit more, as well as making online better.

@Yorumi
I said most people actually.

Not sure why you think I'm trying to remove free speech. i think people should be free to say whatever they want. However, his is about people showing footage of an entire game being played and not wanting to compensate the people who worked on the game.

Most people would agree that making money off of someone else's work isn't right, especially without getting permission from them. How is this any different? Nintendo is trying to make things easier by just taking a percentage of profits, that why no legal work will have to be worried about and people can do videos without worrying about stepping over any lines.

@Quorthon That's all very true, is why I pointed out that people may not buy a game because they've "seen" it. I know for a fact that let's play are still good for getting people wanting to play a game but for the people who would have bought the game for the story but now can just watch a youtube video, that's lost revenue.

@Yorumi That's assuming that the majority always has the power in every situation. That's also assuming that every single person who is upset is saying something. Not everyone bothers to complain vocally though. Just like how not every person votes, some don't feel like they will be heard either way.

@BLPs Sounds like he needs to get a job

@Yorumi Just because a representative is elected by the people doesn't mean they do everything the people wants them to do.

We elected the president (or you guys did, I didn't vote for him) and I'm sure he's not doing everything he was voted in to do.

@Quorthon That's debatable about playing a game and watching someone playing it being vastly different.

If you watch someone play a game from start to finish, you're basically getting the entire experience without really paying anything for it.

Some might say that it's just advertising still but what if the viewers get their fill and don't plan on buying the game since they already "seen" all of it? What then?

@Yorumi
Well I believe most would agree that profiting off of someone's work without them getting compensated in any way seems off.

@Yorumi I never actually brought the law into this, I just said it was wrong. Like from a moral standpoint.

At the end of the day, people are making money off of something someone else made, Review is one thing since it just gives you a small bit of a game but we're talking about playthroughs of an entire game aren't we?

@Quorthon Howso?

It's Nintendo's property. They have every right to do what they want with it.

If I were to take a picture of a friend's painting that they spent months on, shrink it down, and then sell it to people as a postcard WHILE telling them that it's just a smaller version of the real deal,..

Most people wouldn't care, they just want a nice postcard and my friend wouldn't see a dime, even though it originally was his hard work.

This youtube deal is just the same. People like pewdipie don't make games, never claim to either, but they are making money off of games that other people made and who they basically don't want to compensate in any way.
Yet Nintendo is the bad guy here? Seriously? Saying it's 'free advertisment' is a joke. It's not free, pewds is getting paid and making money off of someone else's work. That's the problem.

Kalmaro commented on Review: Chariot (Wii U eShop):

What's with the score? Deserves an 8 or 9 at least. This game is a lot of fun with a friend and has a lot of charm and character.

Not to mention it plays well and looks gorgeous.

This will last all of a few hours. Then people will send bad pictures and app will be shut down.

@ikki5 MORE achievements?
You have no idea how happy you just made me

Also, have you ever got all of the targets in bomb blast? Stuff is hard lol

@B3ND3R Wish they let you use your Miis. I like the brawler a bunch but the swordsman is pretty good. My baby bro is smaller than me so he's faster and such a pain to catch haha

Kalmaro commented on Nintendo Shuts Down Screenshots in Mario & Lui...:

@k8sMum is it Nintendo that's or the super protective parents and sensitive people that are offended by such stuff? Some might argue that Nintendo is being heavy handed but try seeing it from their side.

They could just ignore the problem but then they risk facing angry customer's over the inappropriate material being shown online. Not only that, but they have a reputation of being very mature and child friendly and its clear that they are doing everything they can to set themselves apart and live up to that goal.

So when they release a game and people abuse it to do things they know they shouldn't, is it their fault that they shut things down?

Let's not forget that when you buy a game, you don't really own it, you're just purchasing the right to play it. Still have to play by Nintendo a rules. The problem is that a few people feel entitled to do what they wmt and ruin it for everyone else.
