KillScottKill commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Everyone defending Nintendo is just as much of a joke as they are.

The most successful LP channels on YouTube aren't popular because of the games they're playing, they're popular because of what they have to offer compared to ever other countless LP channel. People don't watch Pewdiepie, Markiplier, TBFP, Game Grumps, etc. because of the game, they do it because they find those people are entertaining and they empathize with whatever their comedy style is. Nintendo trying to take a dime from anyone who does more than just upload gameplay footage is pure garbage.

You're already in 3rd place, Nintendo. How about you try not aggravating a community of creators that actually reaches a video gaming audience, unlike yourselves.

KillScottKill commented on Ocarina Of Time 3D Reportedly No Longer In Pro...:

Welcome to old news central. Physical copies of this have been going for well over $50 on ebay for quite some time.

Which by the way, is absolutely maddening. Another reason why Nintendo is slowly poisoning my attitude towards them. There's obviously a DEMAND for physical copies of this game. Plus your install base is about to grow with the New 3DS hitting Europe and NA, WITH Majora's Mask. You think there aren't some people who would also like to buy OoT at their local game store too?

But nah, let's not make more. We here at Nintendo are allergic to money.

I paid $50 for it a couple of years ago - used.

Really, this is stupid. Why even bother showing how much sealed copies sold for? The people who paid for those have no intention of ever playing it. And how much the used copy goes for doesn't matter either. If I didn't already own it, I would still rather pay $50 for the original than download it for Wii U. This is like calling people who want the authentic Earthbound cartridge bitter because it's only $10 on Wii U. There's something to be said for owning a physical copy - especially in comparison to a download that isn't even on the original console.

What's cooler, having a copy of Super Mario Bros. in a folder on your Wii U? Or being able to point the original five screw cartridge you have on your shelf?

I remain extremely aggravated that the standard model isn't coming here. This wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for Nintendo's outdated policy on region locking (another baffling decision). The only way to get the "New" features (C-stick, ZL, ZR, exclusive games) is by dropping $200 on an oversized model that blows out the graphics and doesn't even come with a charger.

I guess I'll be skipping on a generation of Nintendo handhelds for the first time in my life.

KillScottKill commented on Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become...:

@MadAdam81 Oh my God you're way out of line. LAUGHABLY out of line. For one, it sounds like someone has an axe to grind at Bayonetta for it's adult themes. Calling it basic action play is so bush league. You clearly don't know your action games. Bayonetta is top of its category and that's why each titles has been HIGHLY acclaimed.

And no, MK8 is not much more than it's previous iterations. It's Mario Kart Wii in HD, but minus wonky tilt controls being its primary control style. I've said before it's even watered down, compared to say Double Dash which was far more imaginative. MK8 is essentially the franchise's equivalent of NSMBU. The same old bull but in HD. But hey, doing the same races online over and over are fun, right? So obviously, GOTY.

Finally, questioning The Last of Us. Lol, just stop. That game, the original and its re-release, crush every game you named except for maybe Skyrim, which was arguably the best game of the 7th generation (as was TLOU). The Last of Us was a masterpiece. MK8, Smash, and Mario 3D World are great, but they're certainly not masterpieces.

KillScottKill commented on Mario Kart 8 Beats Stern Competition To Become...:

@MadAdam81 lmao, criticizing Bayo 2 for not improving on its predecessor (singular) but championing MK 8 - literally an HD rehash of 20 years worth of the same idea compressed into a weekends worth of new gameplay and months worth of doing the same thing over and over and over again. lololololol

The aggregate opinion on Bayo 2 shadows Mario Kart 8 hands down. It's really not that close.

KillScottKill commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

@Spectra_Twilight Wrong. The word "favorite" appears no where in title, the article, or poll. It asks for the best, something gamers have a nearly impossible thing deciphering objectively and separating from their favorite. For example, Double Dash is probably the "best" designed of the series but it doesn't change the fact that MK64 is my favorite.

There's obviously no voter control here, so it's pointless to complain about, but unless someone had played the majority of these games - if not all of them - it's hard to take their opinion seriously, because there's no way they could possibly proclaim one (say MK8) as the best, if they hadn't played its predecessors.

KillScottKill commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

@MadAdam81 that is patently false. The most popular feature in multiplayer Mario Kart on SNES was battle. Battle was immensely popular for a long time and peaked in Double Dash.

Doing a rehash of the same old battle mode would have still been better than making a half-baked one that takes place on the normal tracks but with balloons. Yes they could have gone so much further than same old battle mode, but this was a downgrade and nothing more.

KillScottKill commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

@Spectra_Twilight yeah, no way people reading could be possibly influenced to vote for MK8 or anything. Not like this site just told them it was GAME OF THE YEAR a couple of days ago. And I'm sure it being NEW and one of if not the only console MK that the young readers are familiar with had any bearing at all. Nope.

KillScottKill commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Lmao. Today's youth and the generation of "now."

No Mario Kart with a half-done, lazy battle mode is the best Mario Kart game. Therefore, MK8 is instantly disqualified.

Either MK64 or Double Dash. MK7 gets brownie points for being portable.

KillScottKill commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:

LMAO Mario Kart 8. Nintendo homers, ladies and gentlemen. It's not even one of the best three retail games on Wii U this year (DKTF, Smash, and Bayonetta 2). No one but a Nintendo site would even nominate MK8.

Shovel Knight is game of the year across every platform anywhere. Period.

KillScottKill commented on Weirdness: The Pokémon Timeline Seems as Craz...:

How is this news? One crackpot Pokemon fan has a theory. Big whoop.

Why would there ever need to be alternate timelines? With the exception of Gen I and Gen II, there's little to no crossover between the eras. And even brining up the remakes in this is ridiculous. They're REMAKES.

Generally it's accepted that Gen I is chronologically followed by Gen II (they make it apparent). Most believe Gen III happens the same time as Gen I, but in a different part of the world. Gen IV is believed to happen during Gen II, as evidenced by a Gen II gym leader visiting Sinnoh. Gen V and Gen VI happen during undisclosed time periods.

KillScottKill commented on Weirdness: Sony Uses Art From Super Smash Bros...:

Mega Man hardly has any reason for being in there anyway. Mega Man 8 was on PS1 (as well as Saturn) and PS3 got MM9 and MM10 like everything else. If anything, that should be X. X5, X6, X7, and X8 were exclusive home console releases to Playstation. X4 and X3 also had Playstation releases.

KillScottKill commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

@JaxonH the problem is people are taking the 6/10 to mean how it rates as a port, and that's just wrong. In terms of how it stacks up to the original releases on PS4 and X1, it's about 8 or 9 out of 10 as a port. The only thing about Watch Dogs on Wii U that is truly handicapped compared to the others is the missing main DLC.

But again, the game itself isn't great. Put away Ubisoft hate, graphical nitpicking, or how much the Gamepad is used. It's just not a great game. Again, 7/10. The reviews on its initial launch were spot on.

KillScottKill commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

6? Ubi bias. It's a 7.

It's not a bad port. People saying that just don't know the game. Watch Dogs was never great in the first place. It's pretty much a 7 on any console. The issues the Wii U version has exist on the other consoles as well. Mediocre games can be ported as well as possible and it won't change the fact they're mediocre.

I'll finish it. It's not terrible. Better than AC3 (that game sucked across every platform) but not as good as AC4. I still recommend AC4 to anyone who hasn't played it. Plus it's a lot cheaper than Watch Dogs, for the moment.

KillScottKill commented on Guide: The Best Black Friday Nintendo Deals in...:

OP didn't do enough homework.

The best Wii U deal is at Toys R Us where the 8GB Wii U bundled with Skylanders is just $200. If you like to download, you'll buy an external hard drive either way, so the 8GB unit is fine.

Also didn't mention that Walmart has Wii Party U for just $25 with the black Wii Remote bundled in. A huge steal.

Not getting any Nintendo stuff, personally. Only game I'm out for is Assassin's Creed Rouge. May also get Skyrim at Best Buy or Alien Isolation.

KillScottKill commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

@BoltedArc your reading comprehension is deplorable. No one who criticized Nintendo use of the Gamepad (or lack thereof) praised Ubisoft's use of it. It just doesn't make any sense to pan Ubi for not going crazy with it when the first party developer is just as guilty of neglecting it on their own platform.

And where do you get off telling people how to spend their own money? A game is a game is a game. If I want to vote with my wallet and buy a full price game to support third party titles on the Wii U, that's my prerogative. If more people were willing to do that in the first year of the Wii U's life, we wouldn't even be talking about a Watch Dogs that was delayed. And calling it broken is so beyond ignorant. You clearly haven't played it given your stance, so how could you possibly know if it's broken? Everyone who HAS played it has done nothing but praise it for holding up far better than the skeptics anticipated.

For the record, it has nothing to do with clamoring for M rated games. I OWN Bayonetta 2, thank you very much. I just want the best Wii U library with a diversity of games, like any sensible owner would.

Really you've done nothing but make yourself out to be a petulant child. Leave the complex issues regarding the Wii U's library to us adults.

@shaneoh ouch nice burn. 10/10 would sting again.

Are Nintendo fans still seriously not ready to accept that NSMB games are uncreative, homogeneous bores that are living off the fame of Super Mario Bros. 3? The same people that herald these as great games are the ones that champion a dumpster fire like Skyward Sword as the greatest Zelda ever. Zzzzzzzzzz

KillScottKill commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

Bought it last night and played for a few hours. Enjoying it so far.

Glad to see some people point out the hypocrisy of those panning Ubi for not using the Gamepad better when Nintendo and their closest devs themselves don't use it predominantly (SM3DW, DKTF, MK8, ZWW HD...). Also getting sick and tired of the complaints about hacking being so simple. For one, this is an open world game with hacking elements. There is so much to hack in the world that having a complex Gamepad style mini game around every corner would destroy the flow of the world. And for the record, there are puzzles attached to the more important hackable things. One security system I hacked had a Deus Ex styled puzzle attached to it, and every ctOS tower (equivalent to Assassin's Creed's viewpoints) has some sort of real life puzzle that deals with manipulating obstacles to make it to the hackable tower itself.

It's a good balance. The last thing that needs to be said is that any flaws with this game are directly tied to the nature of the game itself. It's not a bad port, like many would have you believe (same way AC4 wasn't). Anything wrong with this game is also wrong on PS4, XB1, etc.

KillScottKill commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

@JaxonH I really don't get the hate for the "it's just a map!" stuff when it comes to the Gamepad. It's an open world game. What is more useful than a map on your other screen? So much time saved.

And I get people want little hacking mini games and whatnot to be on their two, but I just don't care. That kind of stuff always takes me out of games. I want the second screen to be helpful, not an excuse to waste my time and distract me from what I was doing.

Thanks NL. Exactly what I wanted to see.

Didn't get on launch because I'm broke atm, but will buy new for the U in the future. I've done my homework and seen that opening scene across the consoles several times. That looked pretty darn good on Wii U. On par with the X1 and way better than last gen consoles. Exactly what I wanted. Sold, Ubisoft.

KillScottKill commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@NintendoMan94 but where is that going to get you in a year or two? These consoles are a generation long investment. Plus there are games beginning to see 8th gen exclusivity (like AC Unity).

As for MK8, it's a fine game - not bad at all. It's just not worth all the hype it gets as being "THE GAME" to get a Wii U for. I suppose Nintendo keeps beating its drum because it's a console mover to casual gamers, but it's hardly a gem. Like I said, I only got about a week's worth of enjoyment out of it because it's short and doesn't add much to the franchise. I suspect Smash will be similar. I'd rather play something like Bayonetta 2, a new Zelda, or a really creative new Mario experience. Those are the kind of things that are really unforgettable.

KillScottKill commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Dr_Corndog lol what? How is that any different? Xbox, Playstation, or PC - the point is that you would still need a separate machine from your Wii U to play these games. The platform doesn't matter. I suppose you could say, "yeah but most people already own a PC and don't need to spend additional money," but that isn't always the case. All I have is a MacBook Pro, so playing AAA PC games is out of the question. If you want to be a dedicated PC gamer, it still costs additional money just like a PS4 or Xbox One would.

KillScottKill commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

"[if] you want to play these great games, you want to have these fantastic experiences, you have to upgrade to the Wii U."

Yeah and if you want to play major AAA third party titles, you have to own a PS4 or Xbox One. Sounds like a wash to me. And by the way Reggie, MK8 ain't that good. I really wish Nintendo would stop being so proud out of a game I got less than a week's worth of enjoyment out of.

I agree that Wii U is a better value. The PS4 and Xbox One are money vacuums comparatively. Sure they cost more up front, but then there's PS Plus and Xbox Live Gold. Plus games don't see price drops as easily and every disc has to install, ensuring you'll need to buy a hard drive for additional storage even if you exclusively use physical discs instead of retail downloads. I've had my XB1 for a month and own five games. Half of my storage space is GONE. It's ridiculous. Thank God the Wii U doesn't do that.
