While I don't think the claims of racism in the game has any merit, I am one of those people that hates what they've done to the battle mode. After racing a few Grand Prixs I like to have something else to do in the game that doesn't involve racing. To me the stock-match cart battles added more to a game that, for me at least, gets old quick.



Kiokothepirate commented on Nintendo Involved In Patent Dispute Over Wii U...:

@Dreamz I would also like to see laws implemented that would require a patent holder to use a patent in some regard within a certain time limit. This way companies couldn't put out patents just to try and keep competitors from using the technology. Obviously, such laws would require some fine tuning.



Kiokothepirate commented on Monster Hunter Producer Ryozo Tsujimoto Emphas...:

Since this game apparently doesn't have any under water battles I'm fine with it being only on the 3DS. With MH3U I played it mostly on the 3DS except for water battles, I had to play those on the Wii U because fighting under water on the 3DS without a second analog stick is infuriating.



Kiokothepirate commented on Tech Site The Verge Thinks The Wii U's Failure...:

I really like my Wii U, I find its hardware capabilities perfectly acceptable and while I was sort of turned off by the tablet controller at first, I have grown to appreciate it. It's not my favorite controller by any means, but it works. My only complaint about the Wii U is the same complaint a lot of people have, there's just a poor selection of games out there. I'd be playing the system a lot more if there were more games that interested me. If Nintendo could somehow find a way to pull third party companies back in I think the Wii U could live out its life with a reasonable amount of success.

Of course, given the Wii U's sub par performance thus far, I wonder what Nintendo's next home console will be like? I'm sure they will once again try to design something that challenges the status quo of gaming, which is something I welcome, but to be honest I would love it if Nintendo released something that blew Sony and Microsoft out of the water as far as hardware capability is concerned.



Kiokothepirate commented on Former Sony Developer Feels The Wii U "Won't S...:

I think, as I'm sure many do, the Wii U's poor sales record is only a matter of not having enough games coming out for it. Once more first party games become available I think there will be an increase in sales, but if Nintendo can somehow reel the third party companies back in, sales could sky rocket. But winning back the third party companies is easier said then done as many of them constantly cater to the more powerful machines and see Nintendo's relatively underpowered system as a hassle. Not to mention that Nintendo would likely shy away from carrying the more mature games that dominate on the other consoles because they don't fit with Nintendo's ideals.

I read somewhere that the execs at Nintendo can't comprehend why violent video games are so popular in the west and why people are so obsessed with the most powerful hardware. They make games to be fun and they make games based on that idea instead of just making games based on what the consumer wants like Sony and Microsoft do. I just think there is a sort of disconnect between Nintendo and the rest of the video game industry. They seem to be stuck in the past age of gaming when it was more about the experience rather than the graphics and hardware.



Kiokothepirate commented on Video: This Is Why CoD: Ghosts Is Best on Wii U:

I love having the pointer controls. I do so much better with the wiimote than with the a controller. I played BO2 on both the wii U and the 360 and I did far better on the Wii U. Prestiged in half the time it took on the 360 and had a k/d ratio double that of my 360 k/d.



Kiokothepirate commented on Pokémon Art Director Would Like to Simplify t...:

If the next pokemon games were simplified back to the level of the original Red and Blue games I might look into playing them again. The latest games seem like too much work to get a strong pokemon. Then again, I was one of those players that assembled a team based on how cool they looked rather than any sort of strategy. Probably why I never made it past the pokemon league in any of my games.



Kiokothepirate commented on Bethesda: Wii U Is "Not On Our Radar" Right Now:

Bethesda is one of my favorite game companies, but at the same time they frustrate me to no end. It just bothers me that they talk like the Wii U is leagues below them and show no interest whatsoever in working with Nintendo. Even if they were to release a legendary edition of Skyrim on Wii U and it didn't sell much, I'm sure Bethesda has enough income from other platforms to cushion the blow. As it stands, the only way I'll ever be able to play their upcoming games is if they release them for Wii U. I don't have the money for a gaming PC, playing games on pc's is too much a pain in the butt anyway, and I'm not going to buy a new xbox just for one game.



Kiokothepirate commented on Aonuma Is Growing "Tired" Of The Zelda Formula...:

I'm hoping they adopt a more open world gameplay style for the next Zelda game. Everyone always said the series was all about exploration, but I've never felt that way. The fact that you had to do dungeons in a certain order and the lack of many things to do outside the main quest line made the games always feel sort of linear in my mind. I never got that "exploration" feel. I would love to see us be able to do the dungeons in the order we choose and have enough to do outside of them to where we could play for hours and not touch the main quest line.



Kiokothepirate commented on EA Outlines Its Reasons for Lack of Wii U Support:

@GazPlant It's a perfectly logical reason, but the problem is that the lack of gamers stems, mainly, from the lack of games. It goes in loop, publishers won't publish games on a console that isn't supported by gamers, but gamers won't support a console unless publishers put out games they want on that console. If the first titles released on a console don't bring in a large enough crowd the whole system kind of falls flat with publishers.



Kiokothepirate commented on Bethesda Has No Current Plans For Wii U or Han...:

@SteveW I agree with you. All those different menus Skyrim has would be much more manageable with the gamepad and I can imagine them making the lock picking make use of the touch screen. I've played though skyrim on the 360 three times, but I would definitely buy it and play again if it came to the WiiU.
