Kaze_Memaryu commented on Capcom Releases Awesome TGS Trailers for Monst...:

After seeing this trailer, I'm convinced that short "Hunting Day" movies which showcase specific monsters would be a gigantic success! Imagine 15 minutes of runtime for this trailer, concluded with the hunter group finally besting the ferocious Diablos! Would be AWESOME!

Definitely Demon King Box for me! Should be a sufficient time killer until something really awesome comes up.
Also, Fantasy Life gets DLC on Day 1... considering the implied amount of content, it seems like stuff they couldn't get done without delaying the game. Still, demanding 8 bucks right away is a bit hefty for starters.

@Einherjar Haha, thanks! But you addressed a problem didn't consider yet: if he keeps up this approach, @RCMADIAX will, while possibly being successful, become less respectable, since not everyone will be convinced by his "intentions". If he does more bad games in the future, he'll soon be identified by that, and only that - not to mention his credibility sinking continuously.

This... I just... but it's... ugh.
I kinda think it's funny to look at, but this completely pointless for the game in general. What the hell is Isabelle doing in the middle of a monster hunt? Not only does it heavily conflict with her as a character, but with the point of Animal Crossing as well!
I don't know what bit them, but suddenly, Nintendo seems to be all about terrible cameos. They lack respect for their own IP's, and when I see this, it looks like it's getting worse.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):

@Quorthon He's only offering what's apparently popular, just like Activision does with its yearly iterations of Call of Duty. Calling that 'taking advantage' is somewhat short-sighted, since the consumer still makes the purchase decision. Besides, your weird metaphor doesn't fit in the slightest.
If so many people buy terrible stuff, why make good stuff? Not everyone can try and play the martyr. We have some talented minds working on impressive titles, but these games take their time, and in between, we have to endure shovelware, since it works. Why should a developer who's successful with his way change the winning formula? The risk/reward ration is too far off to call it a smart decision.

@3MonthBeef It sure does, but that's what happens. If smart people were more open to supporting quality games, the current situation wouldn't even be half as bad.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):

Well, the statement is made, now it's our turn. I, for one, cannot support such low-level games, but I understand what @RCMADIAX is showing us here - while developers make terrible games, we consumers buy terrible games en masse, effectively encouraging the continuous production of even more cash-in minigames.
By and in itself, SPIKEY WALLS is the most blatant Flappy clone yet, since it offers nothing except the very basic, but still costs money. But considering his view on the eShop, we really deserve this junk, since we're dumb enough to pay for it to begin with.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Speeds To Earlier Re...:

Can't believe nobody said it yet... GOTTA GO FAST!

But really, this Sonic game looks like a deciding factor for future Sonic games to me. If it's successful, the new character style will most likely persists, which I see as a good thing because the designs are much better than the original ones, where everyone had the same freaking body shape. But if it fails, SEGA will receive more pressure than ever before to get busy making a good Sonic game again - or if matters come to worst, Sonic might meet his end at that point...

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

The entirety of Bayonetta is a really intricate (and often exceedingly exaggerated) mix of weird innuendo, cool (and sexy) shots, and a genuinely interesting plot that actually has definite relevance. And that's exactly why I liked it so much back then! I'll be glad to waste every minute I need to make it through this game once more - and then, off to number two!

@Artwark I expected more than that. There are fan animations that look a whole load more professional than this, and they didn't even need to ask for donations to make them (Mike Inel is a great example, just don't look him up too quickly, he has a good amount of NSFW ready).

Sorry, but this doesn't impress me in the slightest. There are far to many mistakes and design flaws to consider this good. Besides, lazily animated and colored manga scans happened with much better quality in less time it took these guys to release... this.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Weirdness: Playing as Peach Online is Triggeri...:

Taking the "Screw the Rules, I'm in Charge" trope to its logical extreme.

But while I didn't think about this possibility, it's not exactly surprising. Peach's Turnip Draw (if it works the same way as in Brawl) triggers a randomized item generator. Every item she's not supposed to pull out at all will be a turnip (plus a few extra numbers, I think). That's how the chances of pulling out Bob-Omb's in Meele were handled as well.
But that's the issue: other characters have separate ID's for their items, while Peach draws from the actual item list.

I suppose this is more of an oversight than a glitch, but I'm curious how Nintendo will solve it: will they change Peach's Turnip draw to have a separate list or different behaviour, will they leave it in as an exception to the "For Glory" rules, or will she only draw turnips in For Glory Mode in the future?

That's not just a shame, it's hard to understand.
I know it takes processing power to interrupt a game and open the home menu, but that's not disabled, right? Why not offer a photo gallery feature like Brawl had, from which you can upload screenshots you took the old way?
If this is supposed to be an argument for the N3DS, it's a damn lousy one, that's certain.

Ever since the "Dark Souls is so hard" ridicule (since that's just a lie), I'm having a hard time believing such claims for any game - I'll see if I'm gonna get, probably not though.

Okay, the character designer needs a slap for this. These characters look really boring. Holmes is just the usual generic dude with Holmes' signature attire + pipe slapped on, and Iris is just plain lame.
And if the tropes even reach far enouth to make Iris a bratty half-pint, I'll call it quits.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Mega Camerupt, Mega Gallade, and Mega Sharpedo...:

@Yorumi That's not really the same. They acknowledge the competition built around the metagame (they created it, after all), but that doesn't mean they care about actual competitive balancing - quite a few of the Pokés in post-game challenge modes would barely ever find real use in tournaments, to begin with.
Game Freak more or less reacted to the increasing demand of tournaments, but their Pokémon designs mostly happen without much consideration to balance.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Mega Camerupt, Mega Gallade, and Mega Sharpedo...:

Hm, Mega Gallade doesn't look that bad, but I was hoping for something more elegant. Mega Sharpedo is getting irritatingly similar to
Garchomp design-wise, and Mega Camerupt, while looking much better than before, still seems kinda boring to me. Oh well.

@BlatantlyHeroic I think there's a misunderstanding here.
Game Freak doesn't care much for competitive balancing, so they also don't involve it much when designing Megas.
I think I've read somewhere that Masuda (development head of Game Freak) and Sugimori (Pokémon and character designer) decide on this stuff according to the Pokés environment and behaviour, finding stats alterings that compliment their style, not necessarily enhance them in the stricter sense. That means they probably look for fitting Pokés to add Mega evolutions to, instead of looking for a balanced metagame.
But I also think that's the right approach. Pokémon wasn't designed with competitive balance in mind, so shoehorning it in this late in the series would be more irritating than beneficial. It's all about environmental and natural authenticity.

Does the demo have multiplayer?
That aside, every demo is welcome! And due to many newcomers not being available in it, people on the fence are less likely to jump the ship - it's entirely possible that one of the other characters will be more fun to play, after all.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on NicoNico Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Br...:

@thesilverbrick I think you don't understand what I mean. What I say is that the leaker(s) edited the actual leak photos to include Mr Peepers & Duck, not that the whole photo was just shopped. And I'm not just thinking this outta the blue - the leaks seem to differ in terms of Mr Peepers, and in the character select screen, there are many inconsistencies Sakurai would never have.
Besides, I learned to deny EVERY leak, regardless of how genuine they seem. Until something is truly confirmed officially, absolutely NOTHING about a leak is confirmed or even remotely genuine - Nintendo could take harsh steps and retract characters from the game, for example (theoretically, that is - in practice, they would never just dismiss finished work to disqualify unofficial sources, that'd be stupid).

Kaze_Memaryu commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

@gage_wolf He never blamed anyone for his development decisions. But while the reaction from the thread was kinda the right one, the complaints were going in an entirely wrong direction.
Besides, I'm not just talking about him and his games - I mean all those cheap, but awful games out there that are actually getting bought (The Letter is still a prominent example). Besides, what he does is his business, it's just up to us whether we accept it (buy) or not (don't buy). And by not buying cheap games, they'd soon disappear.

@Yorumi I'm not that fond of his Spikey Walls thing, either. But unless he actually just releases Flappy Bird on WiiU, there's no IP to be stolen here.

Hahahahahaha!!! Oh god, slowbeef would lose it if he heard that!

In all honesty, though. I never liked stuff that was based on Sherlock Holmes, since it only uses their most common tropes as the base, while everything else tends to be rather disloyal (or even insulting) towards the source material.

Wow, those animation are more terrifying than the zombie apocalypse itself!
Kinda sad, really - bland visuals, bad gameplay, and inconsistent framerate meet awesome metal tunes!
It's gonna need some polishing and actual DRAWN comic strips to pique my interest, though the nice metal sound kinda got me.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

Okay, I really side with Mr. Aschenbrenner over this - he paid for the Nintendo Web Framework, and also for all other possible costs we don't know about to get his simple games out to us. And while they may be questionable in terms of quality (no offense, man), they're just there.
If you really want him to put more effort into his games, then don't buy the cheap ones and then call him out on continuing the strategy! Tell him you want better games, boycott terrible games (from any developer), and bring attention to the apparent lack of quality! They'll either give up, or sit down and try to come up with something better - once we, the customers, send the signals, it's up to the developers to react accordingly.
But as Aschenbrenner said, you buy even worse stuff just because it's cheap to laugh about it, yet the developers don't need to care about it. Sold unit is unit sold, period.
I'm among those who hate mobile-like short-attention-span minigames for cheap prices, especially on mobiles. And to me, it really does have a negative impact on the WiiU eShop. But can we just point our fingers at the developers for that? I don't think so. We need to consider that people buy those games, and by that give a developer the impression that there's a mrket for it! And now we have one - the only way to get rid of it is to NOT BUY THOSE GAMES!

That said, I like how Aschenbrenner doesn't just suck it up to whiners, but actually risks his reception as a developer to tell you what the hell you're doing wrong! It takes guts to do that, and he has my respect for that!

@3Daniel And yet, that still doesn't mean that Mr Peppers (or Mr. Peepers, as I finally noticed - stupid me) wasn't edited in by the leaker(s). As I said, I'll keep calling this fake until PROVEN otherwise. Pictures can be manipulated easily, after all.

@rp17 First off, Olimar's naming is different in germany, so I wasn't aware of that, sorry.
Secondly, while the article you get pointed towards is the actual source, it was apparently edited. I'm currently reading through the full interview, but that might take some time (it's really long). Once I got the section, I'll gladly share it.
Meanwhile, if you search for "duck hunt mr peepers" on Google, it will show you various results further acknowledging that to be the actual name of the dog from Duck Hunt (just don't search for "mr peepers" alone, there's some really nasty stuff coming out of that query). Some of the results go back a couple years, so it's not a recent thing.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on NicoNico Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Br...:

@Tsurii897 Oh, goddammit! Brawler Ganon is lame! We need a slow, magic-utilizing swordsman (Ike isn't slow enough)! Or give him his monster form trident! I don't even care what, just give Ganon some weapon, Nintendo!

@thesilverbrick That's not even close to convincing. Since there's no proof to the source of the leaks, anyone could've made or edited them. I actually think this Duck Hunt Dog stuff is more like a running gag among leakers, so they just edit them into the pictures. I'm not believing it until Nintendo confirms it - it's just too dumb and ridiculous to take seriously.
But Ganon with a sword would be the best thing ever! I don't care how many characters already use a sword (there are just as many who fight with their bare hands, so it doesn't matter) - but if it bugs you so much, I'd gladly vote for his monster form trident!

@thesilverbrick @Highwinter Just for reference: Olimar isn't called "Pikmin", either (despite the Pikmin doing most of the strong attacks), so that's not really a strong argument.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Video: Mii Fighters Get Ready For Smash Bros. ...:

Without any knowledge, this trailer is pretty awesome. Once you know what AKB48 is, it's downright horrifying.

@Yosher Not really. It's not worth knowing, actually. But I'll explain it.

What is AKB48?

AKB48 is an idol group (the japanese equivalent of a girl band, which holds a similar status as a popular boyband in the west). But not any idol group - it's the most famous and popular one in all of japan. The problem, however, lies within shady business standards and an obsessive and, more often than not, downright disgusting parts of their fanbase. Some AKB48 fans are notorious for stalking, taking photos of panties, molesting the idols, and even killing each other over opinions on the group or its members.
Recently, the "fame" of AKB48 has been brought to question due to recurring incidents where anonymous bomb threats have been declared on conventions the idol group attends.
But the idols themselves can be similarly repulsive in behaviour, often mocking their fans and the media, as well as simply refusing to sign fan cards at conventions because "the fans are all ugly".
Some time ago, it was revealed that some fans were obsessing so hard over AKB48 that a few of them took up insane debts to buy thousands of albums in order to get equally many vote cards on which member is the best, who should be leading on live acts, and other stuff I don't wanna mention here (it's questionable, though).

The fact that Nintendo is actually advertising their most anticipated game with this idol group just shows how much medial influence AKB48 still has on the masses - though that doesn't mean it's cool.

Kaze_Memaryu commented on Rumour: Concept Work from Former Next Level Ga...:

I dunno, the text on the Samus concept hints at them possibly having been involved with Metroid Prime or a port thereof, which would also explain the similarities of the monster design with Metroid Prime boss Flaahgra.

None of this actually impresses me, though. If anything, both designs look extremely weak, especially that monsters' extremely delibebartely threatening design, which looks painfully unnatural for a Metroid game.

@Legromancer It's probably the combination. Activision is notorious for unreasonably short deadlines on licensed games, and WayForward hasn't been able to deliver their usual quality in such short time, either.
That said, it's entirely possible he just doesn't like WayForward in general. Tastes differ.
