The argument doesn't really work. Audiences from PS3/X360 aren't automatically on PS4/XBone.
I think the more difficult part would be to produce the instrument controllers YET AGAIN, and then selling them to the masses yet again.

@Espy That's because they're quicker, and more people have the time (and patience) to do it. Seeing legit speedruns without glitches can be very boring if a game doesn't offer much on a technical end (Super Metroid is probably the most technical game to speedrun at all).

Okay, who even got that idea? Battletoads is from Rare, and Microsoft does own Rare, but XBox is the absolute last thing I'd ever associate with Battletoads. Wouldn't something from Halo have made more sense? So, while I defintely love this callback to the coolest toads ever, it's plain dumb to make it an XBox-exclusive boss. Most XBoners probably don't even know Battletoads.
Kratos is at least somewhat plausible, although pretty artifical, but that's what happens when a company never was in the 8-bit era of gaming.

I don't get the constant whining about the eShop. It's not difficult to find stuff as long as you have at least a faint idea of what kind of games you're looking for. Besides, it's an interface - none of these interfaces for online stores are "fun": Steam is overloaded, PSN is as basic as it gets, and XBL is Windows 8 with ads. At least the eShop has catchy music in the background. The only thing that could possibly deserve an addition is having the assortment available alphabetically, but that's pretty much it.

It's Dragon Quest - and Japan still loves Dragon Quest, in addition to this game being a Musou-type that combines EVERY SINGLE DQ CHARACTER into one single game. How can such a thing not sell?
Anyway, I'm just glad that the PS3 version is selling better (the only difference is the framerate, and while 30fps are a freaking shame, the game was designed around these 30 frames, so the 60 frames for the PS4 version are practically useless).

Hm, this is bound to make a second round at some point. Ninja Pig will porbably just slightly alter the trollface and then resubmit it, I presume.
That said, people sure know how to give this guy attention. Instead of ignoring him, they fell right into his trap - which consisted of deliberate annoyance, ignorance, and outdated memes. The one thing that is of note here is that this guy clearly got what he wanted, money. And now he might earn some more with his "new" version of Meme Run which some "fans" will inevitably buy.

How can it not revolve around Peach? She's royalty, possibly the last of the royal bloodline in all of the Mushroom Kingdom! Can't get much more important than that - especially since Nintendo will most likely never make her an actual mother or anything.

@BlatantlyHeroic Death... doesn't really exist in the mushroom kingdom, apparently, so that's up for debate.

I never played Clayfighter, so I don't really know what to think about this - except that I think it's uncool to not confirm a release on its' original home territory. Or were any of the Clayfighter games released on non-Nintendo consoles?

Pff, I find it funny.
Why are you guys even whining? If you don't like the price, don't buy it for the price. It's not like your life is over without this. Besides, buying a regular Mario amiibo and painting it golden is probably the easiest thing you can do to have an individual one.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Character Art From Forthcoming Disney Wii U Ti...:

@MasterBlaster First off, my concepts are at home, obviously.
Secondly, who says I release them? Creating stuff doesn't automatically imply any desire to display it to the public - I do it to keep track of my ideas. I'm working on a project, but since I have a regular life to attend, my time for that is very limited.

@CosmoXY The Disney productions you called all have the same issue: they're predictable (except for Phineas & Ferb). This predictability is present because they always boil it down to one single source of conflict, which is almost impossible to avoid due to the characters being too underdeveloped. But if they were to put more emphasis on characterization, the movies would become too long, and might also become to information-heavy for the young audience.
On the other hand, projects like Phineas & Ferb are created under Disney's supervision, but not by the Disney studios themselves, meaning the actual creators only need to watch the deadline and financial limits, for the most part, so they push the limits and listen to feedback from viewers and fans.

And as a side-note: Disney might own Marvel, but Marvel movies were always terrible (mostly because of unvelievably sloppy inconsistencies and plotholes), so I'm not blaming them for that.

@Quorthon Sorry, didn't mean it like that. I mean that the hardcore PS4 fans often resort to comparing the performance of the consoles instead of showing good games to justify their praise. All they care about is that their console multimedia box is "stronger", not if it has worthwhile games or not.

@Chaozrush21 It's all about patience. If I can hunt down 113 Gigginox in Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (each hunt taking around 10 -15 minutes), and only get one single Nightmarish Maw out of the deal, then what's the big problem with this?
And it's not like you MUST have a Mew. You want one? Make an effort or get over it. Stealing to achieve something in a game is pathetic, F2P or not.

I don't get what Sakurai likes about Steam. The purchaser-vote system is on 3DS and WiiU as well, the tag system consists of more trolling than being useful, and feedback is rarely present in favor of the recurring "X/10 would (not) [insert activty related to gaming or the game] again", and the Steam cards are just as worthless as trophies and acbievements, except that they're not mandatory, and people actually pay money for some of them.
Though the worst has to be Steam Greenlight...

@DarkKirby Steam is completely overloaded with stuff, to the point where using it is downright annoying.

Would it have been so hard to include a download code on everyone's quick-start manual? This arbitraray limitation to the eShop version and UK bundle is complete nonsense.
Oh well, I'm willing to pay for it, so it's not like I won't get it, but still...

Funny how PlayStation 4 doesn't even have "Fun-Factor" listed at all. It's just about the power, not what developers make of it - the most powerful console in the world is worthless if it doesn't have any great games to back it up (but tell that to PS4 rageheads).
I have a WiiU because it's not just a cable box. It's a console that encourages creativity, just like the Wii and DS did - less power, more innovation, and that's what provokes creative developers to go all-out on it. Sadly, people fail to appreciate that, instead opting for impressive, but ultimately meaningless visual experiences.

@TomKnows It obviously is, but I think it was necessary. Monster Hunter was starting to define its own niché, and God Eater came around when Monster Hunter was close to its peak. And with God Eater still being drastically different about many aspects (most importantly combat and story), it's not a blatant clone at least.

@CosmoXY Like I care about awards. Their creations have become so predictable it's almost not funny anymore. And the story always revolves around nonsensical conflict that could've easily been avoided by the characters just being honest, for once. Instead, almost every movie nowadays starts with lying or withholding information that posed no dangerous consequences whatsoever.
If people like dull stories, I'll let them have their fun. But it's rather obvious how much they've lost their edge, like it or not.

An incredible feat, even with TAS, but it kinda defeats the purpose of the game. Also: misguiding title - it's clearly not impossible, just insanely difficult (and probably impossible without TAS due to input speed requirements exceeding human capability).

@XyVoX SMW Central would be a great start. They (along with the Talkhaus) regularly hold contests for fun and creative levels, and generally avoid creating kaizo levels unless that's exactly the point.

Ugh, great. And hackers want sympathy? Screw them all. Like it or not, this game allows players to choose: play free or pay fee. Working around that is the most pathetic thing they could do with this exploit - now it's not fun 'n games anymore, it's flat-out theft.

@Yiffy It's not the same folks complaining about both.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Review: Excave (3DS eShop):

@kensredemption What's hardware without games? Yeah, we have many great games, but the separations between the markets on Nintendo consoles is one hell of a letdown, since we're still missing out on titles in either region.
Also, the N3DS thing in NA still annoys me to no end. You're missing out on a great alternative, and regular N3DS owners have very limited community options due to the lack of a dominant language.

Nice thing! Hyrule Warriors is by no means difficult, and unless you're a completionist, there's no reason to require so many rupees, but the grinding in Hyrule Warriors is straight-up annoying when you're dealing with the DLC content, so I appreciate that this exists.

@abbyhitter Two things you're missing:

  • face away from the boss during its death animation
  • kill small enemies during the slow-motion when the boss dies

The character art would've been better if it was pixelated (like the cutscenes in the Saint Seiya NES games), but other than that, it looks vaguely interesting. Though I'll have a hard time getting along with this title - zombies are the most overused and lazy stylistic tool to ever find its use in gaming.

Cynthia is pretty much my favourite character in the entirety of Pokémon (and well beyond that), and I'm adoring this figure - but 99$? Not gonna happen. That's WAY beyond my pain limit (and I have a 175$ Miku Hatsune figma in my room, among others).
