Kosmo commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

I get that some people will miss the Ice Climbers but I'm not one of them. Not only I never learned to play as them, but I had no affection for them as their game never left me with a good impression. (as opposed to the Duck Hunt Dog with which I look forward to play).
And last reason: no more Ice Grabbers in touneys! That's a relief! ^^

Kosmo commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

Buying a hype-dead game that proved to be vastly underwhelming when Bayonetta, Smash Bros, Hyrule Warriors and much more are around? No way, Ubi. Next time you'll have to release the game on time at the very least.

I'm personally for Nintendo hunting down shovelware and ousting it out of the eShop. They need to maintain the quality we've come to expect of them. After all, people buying a Wii U are not people that play this kind of crappy games the most.
SO yeah, you can make a quick buck developping a crappy game, but you won't get known for it. Zynga and King are already paying for their mistakes. They won't hold. Studios with hearts like Oddworld Inhabitants may not make a lot of money but their licenses are WANTED by players.

-That was my own two cents-

Kosmo commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

I personally don"t agree. The Wii U is my main, and only new-gen console. The PS4 and Xbone just don't offer unique experiences. I'd rather stick to the PS3 for now.
As the Wii U is starting to lift off, the two others still have hard evidence to provide to prove that they are worth more than my PC.

@Nimious I doubt Sakurai would do the same mistake twice with Meta Knight. Every character has received a subsential power-up, so they should hold on now. I'm pretty sure that the release date of the two games being so far when the screenshots and gameplay have been looking tight for nearly a year means they are spending some crazy means on balancing the experience they're going to offer us. That, plus Nintendo has been listening to its players recently, and they can't afford to miss out on SSBU/SSB3D.
In the worst case scenario where a character would be unbalanced, let's not forget that the Wii U is a new system that CAN update its softwares easily if needed. (and not going all Capcom over this with an "Ultra SSB Turbo Ex+Alpha 3 Arcade Edition")

Kosmo commented on Talking Point: New Ideas, Not New IPs, Are The...:

IPs give the new idea a solid body to be in. Would Mario Galaxy have been Mario Galaxy with a tasteless mascot? Would Luigi's Mansion have been so cool without Luigi? Would Fire Emblem be as solid as it is without its charismatic characters?

New ideas are all fine, but efforts in that sense are still solidified by known IPs, like Captain Toad, taking the Mario Universe. Ideas have been tried before, and some haven't worked despite being pretty good, like Eleedes, Odama, Geist...

That makes me very excited for Sonic Boom! Both of them. Rise of Lyric sounds like a Sonic Adventure 3, which I've waiting for a long time, and SC sounds great too. The Buddy system brings in mind Sonic Advance 3.

Kosmo commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:

To those who regret that 3DS didn't get much coverage: it doesn't need to. Games are flocking to 3DS like crazy already, the eShop is packed with goodness, and the next big games to come are all well-known already.

For me, Nintendo made the right choice in focusing on the Wii U, as it much needed the attention. ANd we've got the whole package: new IPs, innovative use of the Gamepad, and old favorites. Plus, surprises, like Miis and Palutena and in SSB, or Bayonetta 1 coming bundled with the second.

But what's also important is the form that everything took: over-the-top humor, autoderision, Reggie vs Iwata, and a Luigi Death Stare. That proves Nintendo is LISTENING to its fanbase, and isn't some stuck-up dinosaur like some would like us to believe. Next to THIS presentation, Sony and Microsoft look pale... and boring. When will THEIR two bosses be duking it out?
