"Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspired Sports Uniform"
eh? Thats like saying an old crazed man wandering down the street naked speaking gibberish is showing off.
oh ok, its just an experiment in bad taste and the pulling power of websites with no game to flog to still get clicks

bad graphics are not retro, they are just bad graphics. pixel graphics can be fun because they offer a different perspective, which affects gameplay. in some cases, its just nostalgia. i dont feel nostalgia for most early polygonal games.

there was no point in nintendo chasing the horizon with 64 gig/ 128/512 all become obsolete and add no real value to the gamer. the ability to add an external drive is precisely the right approach. mechanical parts are innately less reliable and ssd is not good value
if you want a bigger faster drive buy a pc.
stoked to be finally able to play these great games on my nintendo

Kurtz commented on Video: We Tackle the Legendary Hyrule Warriors...:

this has been a real surprise for me, and i nearly didnt get it after reading some pretty shallow reviews. i have put many, many hours into it and while i bought the dlc it'll be a long time before i get to it. while i have played Dynasty Warriors games before and wasnt real impressed, this version is much more compelling. the graphics are nice and high contrast so the screen is'nt the usual mess that DW can be. And some really good and varied music and bosses. very very happy with this game. I still dont understand why the touchscreen isnt a map though. I love Midna, what a great character.
edit: i've barely touched the bayonetta demo because of this game

Kurtz commented on Review: Cubemen 2 (Wii U eShop):

very good game, and i wouldnt describe online as dead its just a matter of timing. or you could say its not dead its just sleeping(or pining for the fjords). the single player is excellent and unique. the multi will get better with an active miiverse.

Aye but what happens in those 36 minutes? :)
Ok, your beating me by half a decade glorious member of the council of the ancients. And yes i've noted from your posts a level headedness, but it is fascinating isnt it? or just good for a laugh. You might have inspired me to flesh out my bio a little.

Kurtz commented on Bayonetta on Wii U Bewitches as the Best Version:

i dont think there will be any performance difference gameplay wise between usb and optical. i have digital MK8 and its not like i get a different experience from other users. the usb is probably throttled back, and its only version two.

Kurtz commented on Hyrule Warriors Horses Around with Epona in Ma...:

this is a lot more fun than the reviews suggest. and i cant wait to wade through the hordes on Epona. it runs at 60fps during battle its only the average story cut scenes that are 30. i dont think the reviewer liked a dynasty warriors zelda concept, the gameplay is better than Orochi Hyper3 its much clearer whats going on and has far less drop in drop out.

yeah sorry, i'm totally behind. work and study its not a good mix for old people :) i'm operating on martian time keeping abreast of the latest trends in nutty as squirrel poop narratives. i'm glad you enjoyed the tip, there is a whole subterranean culture of these "truthers".

p.s subterranean because bacteria does not enjoy the light.
my god this article is old haha. where have i been?

@SKTTR
very well put and a hell of a lot more polite than i would be. of all the companies to accuse of bad faith(which is what i believe they were trying to insinuate) two tribes is the least deserving.

@rjer
its not bait and switch. and you do sound resentful. and using your kids as a fig leaf for your own apalling attitude is lame beyond words

Kurtz commented on Review: Teslagrad (Wii U eShop):

i thought this might be another wonky concept indie game, but the mechanics are fun and the atmosphere just keeps you at it like metroid. great art, animation and sound design and the controls are very tight. once you get your head around the polarity mechanic you zip around like a nerdy super hero.

fantastic developer and a really cool guy(from what we see).

some others have touched on this already but the 64 is getting a lot of hate recently. like a lot of nintendo innovations it is initially alienating but when you sit down and use it, it works. very comfortable controller

Kurtz commented on Project CARS Wii U Delay Was To Ensure It's As...:

i'm happy for them to take their time and wring every last watt of power out of the wiiu. but i'll be hoping for 60 fps, 30 is barely tolerable in a racing game, even if it means the trees dont have sloths loping around in them.
also boycotting a game because it doesnt come out at the same time as the other versions is no way to get 3rd party support
