MadAdam81 commented on Rumour: XSEED Less Than Happy With Nintendo's ...:

So Xseed are upset that they didn't get to put their name to this horrible game?
Possiby the lowest rated game on Wii U, including that legendary terrible indy game, would have been best not touching this game at all.



MadAdam81 commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

For - you don't have to buy the Super Mario series of Amiibo alongside your Smash Bros figures.

Against - you are cheating Nintendo out of money. There's plenty of stock for the Mario Party figures, so there is no need to back up save data.



MadAdam81 commented on Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer and amiib...:

I'm going to get the party bundle and Nook and KK figures. If the game's horrible I'll return it, but as my kids, wife and I seem to be the only ones in the world who really enjoy MP 10, I feel there's a good chance we'll like this too.
Still tempted to drop the game bundle pre-order and get two more separate Amiibos instead and download the game for free.



MadAdam81 commented on Mega Yarn Yoshi amiibo Stampedes onto Shelves ...:

I am so getting one, maybe as a Christmas present for my 4 year old Yoshi loving son. But my 5 and 9 year olds as well as the wife & I really like Yoshi too, and the kids already have a normal Yarn Yoshi each, plus we have a regular Yoshi Amiibo and will soon have a Suoer Mario series Yoshi.
I won't even have that many Marios as I didn't care for gold or silver Marios.

Probably not technically terrorists, because the dictionary definition is about for a political cause.
But still well done everyone who took the threats seriously and passed the details on to authorities, because too often people are unable to take such threats seriously and never let the police know - how many times do you hear someone say "I thought they were joking."

The probably knew it was a hoax but printed it anyway for the shock value. UK tabloids love printing lies as long as they can claim a source for it - Doctor Who speculation and idea forums are always used as sources for headlines.



MadAdam81 commented on The Piracy of amiibo Now Seems Possible With t...:

@rob955 Using one Amiibo in Smash Bros and Mario Party 10, both of which store data in the sole save slot on the figure's chip.
There is much less of a problem for those who own the Super Mario & Smash Bros sets, as they will have 2 Mario's, 2 Luigis, 2 Peach's and 2 Bowsers. And Skylanders will provide a 3rd Bowser and 2nd DK and there are 2 other coloured Mario's, gold and silver, and two new upcoming Mario 8 bit Amiibos.
Toad and Wario don't have two different Amiibo's but aren't in Smash Bros.



MadAdam81 commented on Exclusive: MercurySteam Has Been Working On A ...:

Mercury Steam do not have a good game under their belt. They are the Uwe Boll of games. Federation Force will be 00 times better than any piece of junk these people make.
Unless Nintendo has creative control, then it could be good.



MadAdam81 commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Acknowledges Nintendo a...:

I like that they can work together for the common good in the fight against the bigger mutual villainy of the shrinking market in the face of mobile phone gaming. I think they need to do some more "wow" moments, massive ones where they actually do work together officially on some projects, such as sharing some first party IPs to do a multiplatform Smash bros type game with characters from all of gaming. That would bring back a lot of people from smart phones an would break the internet.



MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

@Yorumi the idea is to learn all the tools that day, make a level and share it.
So, like with visual studio, you would still be able to compile day one (if you rush a project to completion on day one), but you learn one set of tools a day, make something and share it and then the next day learn the new set of tools, combine it with what you already have and make a new level.
It seems more about teaching good level design by starting small and building up rather than teaching the tools.



MadAdam81 commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

@Yorumi It's to stop overwhelming people. And as you brought up the sequel to Metroid Prime hunters, which was also a game not starring Samus, I would say that when FF comes out & Super Mario Maker comes out, people will realise that their anger at tiny unimportant and obvious things were just over reactions.
People have over reactions to one tiny thing they hear in an upcoming game and it turns out to be utterly silly.
Remember, people don't make fames for just you, based on everything you think you want. They make games for a large audience, and they don't want Super Mario Maker to be too overwhelming for anyone who isn't an adult or isn't a level designing expert already.



MadAdam81 commented on Rayman’s Creator Is Designing One Of The 60 ...:

Retro should do a bunch of levels - I loved their work on Tropical Freeze and I assume they did Metroid Zero and Fusion as well.
And they should get Sonic trilogy + Knuckles veterans as well and others who have done great platforming games.
