MailOrderNinja commented on Video: Fan Recreates Stunning Build Of Ocarina...:

His guy did a great job, but even though Zelda U is on a lesser powered system the art direction is stunningly beautiful. Skyward Sword looked, in my opinion, as good and most times better than anything on the competitors. If it had been HD as well, well we've seen the Dolphin results.



MailOrderNinja commented on The Smaller New Nintendo 3DS Model is Coming t...:

How on Earth did these comments turn ugly? It's not even something divisive like an amiibo or DLC. It's literally a new skin to a system and a model people have clamored for. Why does anyone see the need to get up in arms with people over that?



MailOrderNinja commented on Gorgeous Xenoblade Chronicles X Special Editio...:

@JaxonH You seem to have an ear to the ground for this stuff, and there is no PM option I can find, could you please mention me or shoot me an email it these become available again for preorder on any site? I am so excited for this game and am a little crushed I missed the preorder.

@FLUX_CAPACITOR No, I called out a person who was being judgemental, you answered aggressively with sarcasm, I countered, and you were aggressive and sarcastic again (although my answer to you was sarcastic as well in it's opening because I was frankly a little miffed at your response)

It's clear that with a lot of people here Nintendo could do whatever they wanted and they would buy their products. There is no talking with blind fandom. You decry people attempting to have a discussion or bring anything negative to bear, on a topic that was bound to be divisive, in a place that is meant for discussion.

People are allowed to have opinions that aren't yours as long as they share them in a way that doesn't put down another individual. When that starts happening, is when I have an issue with it.

I love Nintendo as anyone I know can attest. However, I can see when the stuff they do is nonsense. I don't unilaterally agree with whatever they do because I'm a fan of gaming, not just of Nintendo. Amiibo, and all toys to life for that matter, are utter nonsense. Just because they've become the norm doesn't mean they should be. Just because people are used to being ripped off doesn't mean nobody should say anything about it. What kind of place do you want Nintendolife to be? Nobody is allowed to speak their opinion unless it's all for Nintendo?

You clearly have your opinion and you won't change it. What point is a debate when you dismiss everything the other person says before they say it?

@FLUX_CAPACITOR Nice try friend. Perhaps try reading next time.

First of all the individual's tone was arrogant and that's why I called it that. It was textbook holier than thou about people expressing concerns about a product on a forum designed for discussion. He acts as if somehow he is better than others because they have nothing better to do than complain while he himself is complaining on a site instead of playing the games he adores. THAT'S irony.

Second it isn't another product line. It is DLC: pieces of a game that are sold separately that add to or complete the game you purchased. I'm saying they need to offer the DLC to people not interested in a figure that just want to play the game and all aspects of it.

Third never did I say they should stop making amiibo. Personally I love the little statues even if I hate their availability. I simply stated that there should be options and I think even the staunchest amiibo defender would agree.

@Syrek I feel like your post is sort of arrogant and the same things you said could be said back to yourself. After all you are on a forum complaining about people complaining and then judging them for complaining in the same breath. Of course you say at the end it's ok to be critical of something you don't like, but you spent the whole post detailing that it wasn't in your opinion. Besides what's the point of these boards of it isn't discussion?

That being said Jaxon is certainly one of the more level headed of the bunch even though I usually disagree with some of what he says.

I think what you see as complaining or entitlement are people who feel strongly that what Nintendo is doing is not right, but are at an impasse because they are huge fans and still want to play everything on a game without having to buy figures to do so. Why can't Nintendo just do standards priced DLC?

And to return the arrogance with arrogance I come here because I find it funny to see raging fanboys who 2 years ago preached about how awesome Nintendo was that they were so good about DLC and decried all other systems and are now ardently defending the same practice because it's Nintendo.

@wariowarewolf I agree. I think people are missing the point: this content isn't priced the same as the competition. Yes you are also getting the figure in the price, but the problem is that's the only way you can get it. If they put all the challenges modes out there for Splatoon for 15 or 20 dollars than there is no argument. Simply decide if that content is worth it. As it is now they are locking content behind difficult to track down figures that a lot of people might not even want. Thus if you want everything for a game you are forced to buy a chunk of plastic you might not even want.

Everyone saying they aren't hard to get they are still far harder than logging in and downloading content from an Xbox for DLC.
