LUIGITORNADO commented on Video: Latest Hyrule Warriors Legends Trailer ...:

It's really too bad. I was waiting to buy Hyrule Warriors for Wii U and I don't own a 3DS, but with all this DLC and the base game still being expensive. What's the incentive? Why should I spend $60+ on a game when they're offering the same stinking thing on a handheld for half the amount.

Shame on you, Nintendo you scoundrels.



LUIGITORNADO commented on Editorial: Linkle May be a Clunky Introduction...:

It doesn't affect you at all if they give the option to play as a female Link. Keep playing as the boy. You keep talking about this as if boy Link will go away, even though the argument is that players want the option to choose Link's gender. One day you're going to roll-out of bed and realize how silly it is to be upset over such a thing.

And if your entire argument hinges on the use of "hero" instead of "heroine.." well...women are often called heroes in literature. And if all Links have the "spirit" of the hero, all that really means is that the original hero was a male >_>

Listen. Uptight feminists get under my skin to. I don't listen to them. I don't know what they're arguing for or against. They probably would rather want a Zelda game ONLY staring a female protagonist, and that's crazy.

Ever hear about that story of the father who reprogrammed Donkey Kong to allow his daughter to play as Pauline and rescue Mario instead? He didn't do that because he's some sort of fem-nazi, he did it for his daughter, so she would be more interested in playing. He wanted to share gaming with her; and fact is, gaming is dominated by male characters, and even though some women don't mind that, there is an opportunity to reach a broader audience by making more relate-able characters, and at a basic level we relate to what we are: boy, girl. Giving players the option to play as a female Link could very well make some little girl interested in Zelda, create new fans.

Is that so bad? Is it really THAT bad that some Zelda-fan father out there might have a better chance to share Zelda with his daughter if they simply had the option to play as female Link? I don't want to go on a pulpit and preach how empowering it would be, but think of the alternative media for a little girl, and tell me that Zelda isn't better than that shit.

It's clear that you feel connected to Link, that you've spent probably thousands of hours adventuring through him. No one is taking that away from you, all we want is for more people to love Zelda.

I hear you with wanting a game staring Zelda, but that's not excluded JUST because Nintendo decides to give players the option to play as a female Link.

I hope you can at least be open minded about what I said.

Less Anita Sarkeesian, more daughters.

@smashbrolink Series lore? What lore says the hero HAS to be a dude?

Find it. Let's see it. All you are doing is dissecting word choice and warping into some sort of fan-wank.

There's those words again: Pandering, SJW. Paahhhhlease. If Nintendo chooses to give players THE OPTION to play as a girl Link, then it shouldn't be any skin off your back. You can continue to play as a boy, ignore the female hero, and go on your merry way.

It's downright selfish to be against an option.



LUIGITORNADO commented on Feature: Reflecting On Three Years With The Wi...:

I've enjoyed Wii U much more than I did Wii.

It's missing a few things, like Metroid, and...a new Zelda, but I can forgo that for the amount of quality titles Nintendo has produced.

So far none of Wii U droughts can match Wii's. I still remember the year of only Animal Crossing. Awful.



LUIGITORNADO commented on Editorial: Linkle May be a Clunky Introduction...:

@khaosklub No it wouldn't be >_>
Zelda is old-world fantasy? This isn't Song of Ice and Fire where 13-year-old girls are getting married off to warlords.

Zelda is children's fantasy. Nintendo can make whatever rules they want. And Having strong female warriors isn't something outside of the realm of Zelda: Impa! For shame there is entire race of female warriors in the series O_O

And the story is not hinged on the player being boy. There's nothing male specific about the writing outside of mentions of "he" and some female NPCs alluding to Link's "cuteness."

And why does there need to be gender specific different quests in the story? There doesn't need to be. WTH would that even be? It's silly. Not to offend you, but I do believe it's just innocent ignorance on your end.

That's it!

The argument against having the option to play a girl keeps getting sillier.



LUIGITORNADO commented on Editorial: Linkle May be a Clunky Introduction...:

It is childishness. And your mentioning of SJWs is only proof of that.
What most are asking for. What I ASKED FOR. Is the option to play as a female Link. OPTIONAL. So if chosen, those who don't want to play a female Link can never play as one. It doesn't change your experience at all, but it'll change others people's experience for the better.

All Link ever was suppose to be is a link between the player and the world. A gender choice of female or male is the most basic option out there that has been incorporated into hundreds of games.



LUIGITORNADO commented on Editorial: Linkle May be a Clunky Introduction...:

Having the option to play as a female Link would be great. Gamers have no sound footing to stand against it besides childishness.

I will say Linkle is a stupid name, and if they so choose to make a female option in the main series that the outfit more or less needs to be the same between both genders.

Didn't they say somewhere that this was Link's sister?



LUIGITORNADO commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

Honestly...I know it's okay in Japan, but it's not over here. Nintendo doesn't want backlash from the majority, and do we blame them? It takes one idiot to to go on an SJW twitter rampage for it to make headlines on all the news sites.

You're damned if you do; damned if you don't. I don't know why any western audiences would want to see a 13-year-old in a bikini; unless they're 13. It's kind of disgusting. And even then the new outfits are still sexualized.

Get. Over. It.



LUIGITORNADO commented on Star Fox Zero Delayed To Achieve a "Platinum F...:

The problem from the getgo with this game is that they did not market it as Platinum's Star Fox, and that Myiamoto seemingly did not give them leave to go all out.

How do you get Platinum to work on a Star Fox game, and end up with Zero?

It should be as intense. Not a snooze fest.
