My favorite video games are platformers and RPGs, however my favorite series has to go to Pikmin. I would consider myself an expert at platformers, but I'm sure there are people out there much better than me! I also like video games with a lot of secrets, and I am very fond of level editors.

@Aurumonado Why would the article be here for everyone to just say "yay, we agree, Sakurai is infallible!"

The article is up for discussion, and I see nothing wrong with pointing out some of the problems I saw that the, imo, obviously erroneous statement by Sakurai has.

But I guess that's enough. I will proceed to stop "complaining" (apparently I'm complaining), and not buy this game. I don't care for it.

@Dr_Lugae Nothing is set in stone. Like I said, this particular thing is not that bad imo (but still weird), but the underlying principle is bad, imo. By their logic of including this feature, they can put in other, more obviously morally objectionable features under the principle that it's just a "bonus feature". It's the root of the issue I'm concerned with, not branches we are all seeing now.

MasterWario commented on Masahiro Sakurai Tackles Criticisms of Bonus F...:

I agree with his point to a degree, but you have to be thinking about what the motivation is here. If it gets to the point where you can sacrifice your own teammates by watching them burn, then there might be an obvious issue.

Optional gameplay elements don't bother me at all unless there is an underlying moral issue. That's why people are concerned with something like this. Are you trying to say you can make any morally objectionable content ok by making it a "bonus feature"? That's not very sound logic.

Of course, for something like this I'm not too concerned on it's own, but it sounds like this is turning out to be a strange game, making me care exceedingly less about it than I already was.

@Yorumi Alright, I'll wait till Xenoblade actually comes out, but so far I haven't heard the avatar talk once.

And it probably is bs, because he seems as upset as an old krabby patty. He wants to make fun games, not make socially perfect games; because that's impossible.

@Yorumi I mean, if the characters of the game were three Zeldas and you could dress them up in different ways I would be just as ok with that. Which either way, it's an interesting artistic expression of the developers that (as long as the game is mechanically good and doesn't have anything too offensive) I'd enjoy experiencing.

I understand your point, but the whole reason I got into video games is to experience worlds that I couldn't experience otherwise; if we need to cater to everyone when making a game with customize-able characters, I'd rather never see customization again. Because let's be real, people will never stop asking for more catering, at least I don't see it ever stopping. Honestly, I'm still disappointed that Xenoblade Chronicles X has an avatar player; I feel it will be a much less immersive experience because of it.

Really guys? Really? (To those asking about this stuff)
I have no problems playing whatever gender/race my character is in my game. It's a game design choice and anyone who's upset about it is starting to lose a grip on what a video game is in the first place.

MasterWario commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

GOTTA HAVE Super Mario Maker and Yoshi's Woolly World! And Paper Jam too, cause the quality in the Mario & Luigi Series is always super high.

Some people will like amiibo festival to be sure, but I have no idea why Nintendo decided to put the time and investment into something like that. It's ridiculous.

MasterWario commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

Ha ha, all these people saying they're moving on to other consoles. I'm just not going to buy any! Ha ha ha ha ha...ha.

But seriously after Mario Maker comes out and they hopefully get King K. Rool into Smash, I'll be good. Tropical Freeze and Returns already came out so no new DK platformers for a while, and it doesn't seem like there's a new Super Mario title coming out either. I really think I'll be done after the Wii U.

MasterWario commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

I went and watched the one last year and, several titles shown in this direct were shown last year... that's pretty bad.

But whatever; Splatoon is loads of fun and I'm still really excited for Mario Maker and Yoshi's Wolly World.

It's just that E3 this year was about a waste of time. The puppet sections were funny and I liked hearing about Mario Maker, but I didn't care much for anything else. The Mario & Luigi title will probably be really fun, but I'm still just weirded out by it.

MasterWario commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

What it all boils down to is this: Nintendo didn't need an E3 presentation. All the games people are excited for are games that we already knew about. If you don't have anything else to show you may as well not have done a direct.

I already was going to get Yoshi, Mario Maker, Xenoblade X.

The Mario & Luigi game was the only notable title for me, which I still think is weird.

Also no King K. Rool announcement for Smash. I am disappointed.

MasterWario commented on Get Messy in Splatoon's Latest Free Stage, Kel...:

@Yorumi I think Nintendo also had this fear of everyone just glancing over their new IP, but after it selling well, they still kept the same schedule because the way Nintendo works they'll continue to release everything the way they planned to. I'm the same way so I understand where they're coming from. They probably rushed the game a little bit too, and didn't want to go full throttle on everything yet in case things weren't working quite right. As much as we expect Nintendo to be a mastermind at all this video game stuff, I can totally see them being nervous. And when I'm nervous, I certainly don't do everything all it once.

I guess what I'm trying to say is this could very well be a deliberate, poor decision by Nintendo. But this could also be Nintendo making more conservative decisions (which are incidentally poor) because they are nervous and want their game to perform well, technically, socially, and sales wise.

Nintendo made the wrong decision either way, but on one hand Nintendo is scum, and on the other Nintendo made an honest mistake. Even if you are right about the problem, a good number of people will be offended if your conclusion is that Nintendo is scum, especially if the game is as fun as it is.

I have so much more to learn and practice, so I'm not really concerned with the way they are releasing things. I can definitely see the problem, but Nintendo is always a bit wacky and I've come to accept that. The fact that they made an extremely fun game overrides any sentiments of the way they handle things in my case.

@Yorumi I honestly believe it's to generate hype for those who haven't bought the game yet. It's not for those who already bought the game. Cause when you think about it, every time something gets added news sites write articles about it, like this one. It's definitely annoying for people who've already bought the game, but they want as many people to play this game as possible. I mean, I almost glanced this game right over, and it's the most fun I've had in video game in quite some time!
