Kyloctopus commented on Nintendo to Introduce Free Software With NES a...:

It's very interesting to see Nintendo try to modernize their old titles, plugging them with NES Remix or amiibo. Notice how Nintendo keeps their VC and their indie games very closely together on the Wii U eShop as opposed to the 3DS eShop or the Wii Shop Channel? Advertising them like it's just another Wii U game. I wonder how much it is helping them out.

In a personal perspective, it's too bad I likely have all the VC games my amiibo will deliver in trials, unless they go with obscure games, like Kirby's Dream Course and Yoshi's Cookie.

Kyloctopus commented on Nintendo Looking To Offer Affordable Smartpho...:

I've never doubted Nintendo's matters of quality, as a matter of fact I would hope this to be a good thing.
I want to see more new franchises. I want Nintendo to take those same leaps they did with Wiiware, because alot of Nintendo's Wiiware games were great, more experimental, at a lower cost. By the Wii U's launch, Nintendo held more expensive titles, with existing IPs. For example, the cheapest game Nintendo has ever made on Wii U is Pushmo World for $11 and excluding NES Remix, there are no Wii U DL games that are original titles. I understand that most of the Wii U audience grabs more retail games, but they really shouldn't exclude that segment. It needs more original small scale Wii U games. Less Mario Vs. Donkey Kong, more Fluidity type games.

Kyloctopus commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

Good timing in my perspective. I've grown to give up redeeming the codes and wanting the rewards. I've gotten my fair share of games on there. Kid Icarus, Trajectile, Majora's Mask, A Link to the Past, Fluidity and Game and Wario.

I hope it goes out in a bang.

@Tobias95 Pokemon isn't much of a Nintendo title. Gamefreak/The Pokemon Company usually does their own thing and Nintendo publishes whatever's given to them

It's the same that works in Bravely Default. This Nintendo game has similar micro transactions, but Nintendo can't really enforce their ideas onto Square Enix.

Congrats to Nintendo. Very successful year. They came up with more wins than I imagined.

Also really liked how The Game Awards didn't have stuff like "Best PS4 Game" or anything like that. I'm never a big fan of those categories.

As for the Hearthstone. I'm pretty interested to try the game out. I've heard stories of people really getting addicted to that game.

Kyloctopus commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Call me a blind quack, but I don't think Sonic Boom for either system is a travesty.
I think it's dumb to dismiss handheld Sonic games, simply because they're not these big experience and yet mention giving the Sonic IP to small companies instead.
What should happen with Sonic is that SEGA should give Dimps the right to make a home console 2D Sonic game, because they have given most of the best Sonic games of the past decade.

Kyloctopus commented on Loot Crate amiibo Details and Pricing are Conf...:

@WaLzgi Understandable, but Loot Crate is known for their good deals in their boxes. Plus what's the point in getting a box, when you're breaking even on the deal?
This doesn't even include the Government sales tax, which can lead this "deal" at over $180 depending on where you live.
I guess one benefit is that you get some of these figures a bit earlier than when they're on sale, but even then, not all of them and it's only for a short amount of time.
I'm sure you can get a better deal for all 10 of these figures over the holiday season anyway.

Kyloctopus commented on Video: Nintendo's Wii U Holiday Commercial Kee...:

I hate when people say Nintendo's marketing sucks.
This is how I see it: Nintendo branches their advertising in two fashions.
The hardcore market- They team up with IGN and Playboy to advertise Beyoneta 2. They make crazy Nintendo Directs to inform their gaming audience.
And the casual market: The one you can guaranteexs watches television daily, is more vulnerable to commercials and has a family.

Kyloctopus commented on Watch the Sonic Boom Gang Try to Rescue a Cat:

I can't wait for this game. We don't get alot of open 3D Platformers that aren't Mario in the industry, and the 2 most notable ones (Disney Infinity, Skylanders) can cost up to $100 for a great experience.
I'm not judgy when it comes to Sonic games (I actually liked Sonic Lost Word, despite the noticeable flaws) so I'm sure I'll like the game.

Kyloctopus commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

@Dipper723 Homebrew isn't illegal. Modding a game is not illegal. Everyone does it in the PC industry. There are modders and homebrewers out there who have good intentions and want to improve a game, like Super Smash Bros, or Super Mario 3D World, or Sonic Lost World and now they're only legally not able to because Nintendo has legally binded these people not to, which is sad because it means we'll never get user-made content like this.

Kyloctopus commented on Wii U Owner Proves That Rejecting The End-User...:

@Dipper723 You're not unable to have the right because Nintendo told you not to. You're unable have that right because it's against the law. The man never stated his intention was to pirate and considering there is no way to pirate on the Wii U as of typing this, I don't think that was the main intention.
This agreement actually goes against topics such as Mario Kart 8 homebrew. At the moment we know one group is in the middle of modding the game to gain a competitive scene and I'm sure someone out there wants to do something similar with the upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, like what happened with Project M. Project M has grown to become quite popular in the fighting scene. This End-User Agreement goes against modding which some people are justified to be angry about.

Even though its likely to be harmless, he has a point. You own the system and Nintendo is telling you how to use it.
It's like the Xbox One DRM debacle. Microsoft was telling you exactly how to use their system and people got really peeved about it. Even though you bought the system, you don't have all the freedom to do what you want with it, despite it never being necessary to begin with.

Kyloctopus commented on Flipnote Studio 3D:

@ShadowFang The price of the 3DS was nowhere near $400 or $300 so of course you got robbed to begind with ;)
But seriously if you bought a system mostly for flipnote software, then you probably should reconsider your priorities. At the point of typing this, Super Smash Bros. just came out. THAT is something to set priorities on.
To say there's been nothing between the 2.5 year gap of Ocarina of Time 3D and A Link Between Worlds is the biggest joke I've heard in a while. There was Super Mario 3D Land, Animal Crossing New Leaf, Mario Kart 7, Fire Emblem Awakening, Pokemon X and Y, several Etrian Odyssey games, Paper Mario Sticker Star, Kid Icarus Uprising, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, Ace Attorney Dual Destinies, Resident Evil Revelations and it continues to get new games as it now has Bravely Default, Kirby Triple Deluxe, 2 new Professor Layton games, one of which is an Ace Attorney crossover and the amazing Super Smash Bros. released last Friday.
If North American 3DS owners go without this application, its only a small loss in my perception, because I firmly believe as it stands, the 3DS is the best system to buy right now.

Find it funny that Nintendo Life, specifically Thomas Whitehead is unveiling the game to us, as only a few weeks ago, were in a bit of a heated debate about the site. I suppose they all made up and it was a misunderstanding?

Better late than never (never, like those Pokemon Rumble U figures that never came to local EB Games)
I'm still waiting for a Canadian-inspired Pokemon region. We're probably the most diverse land out there. We have maritime islands, snowy teriritories, big cities, immense prairies, pacific beaches and alot of different ethnicities.
Heck, just base it off of Toronto, you'll get alot of inspiration there.

Kyloctopus commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

@SetupDisk There's a difference between making a new console and making a new platform though.
A new platform requires grabbing a new audience, it requires alot of new resources (especially if you're going to compare to the Atari days) and it requires a unique dev team. It might also mean acquiring a new company.
We do know Nintendo did acquired a mysterious company for $100 Million that might be related to QOL, and if so, that alone can set apart the difference between a new platform and a new console.

Kyloctopus commented on Standard 3DS Consoles Will Have Limited Online...:

Anyone who claims they're doing this on purpose is just being silly.
Miiverse and Nintendo Photo uploader to them is free advertisement for Smash, and no one would ever consider sharing Smash Bros. photos as a selling point to the 3DS.
