MaverickHunterX commented on Eiji Aonuma on the Idea of Giving Link a Voice:

Having a silent protagonist is the laziest form of storytelling, and is detriment to the story as a whole. You can't truly be invested in a character that has the personality of a bar of soap, with no opinion or input for what's going on around them.



MaverickHunterX commented on Feature: The Twilight Princess HD Fan Project ...:

I swear, some people never learn.
Unless they get Nintendo's explicit permission to do so, no matter how good this little project of their's turns out to be, it's still an illegal use of Nintendo's IP, and it will be be shut down.

And if they do try to finish this after they get the C&D, they'll get sued back to the stone age.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

No, it's not because of "competition from the tablet industry", it's the fact that the WiiU is a considerably weaker console than the PS4/XBone.

They were so concerned with besting the PS3's specs that they failed to realize that their main focus should've been matching or surpassing current*PC specs, especially that late in the game.



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

@CreativeWelshman Completely agree.

Anyway, Nintendo never said they were working on a new F-Zero or Metroid sequel, all of it was just baseless assumptions made by a few delusional fanboys. Fanboys who think ONE game makes or breaks a console, not it's library of games, just ONE damn game. A game from a series, that's never sold too well to begin with.

And in their mind, if that one particular game doesn't come out, that console's current & future game catalog magically disappears.

The lesson they never seem to learn is that you NEVER buy a console for just one game. You buy it for it's game library. That's what smart people do.



MaverickHunterX commented on The President Of Stella Glow Developer Imageep...:

WTF is going on in Japan?
Hideo Kojima has been missing since March 19, this dude Ryoei Mikage went missing back in October, the hell man.

Is the Yakuza THAT bad over there?!
Do they need Batman or The Punisher or at the very least Liam Neeson?



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

I mostly liked it.
We got two Fire Emblem games coming out for the 3DS.
Splatoon has an actual release date AND an Amiibo set.
Fatal Frame is actually coming out in the west. WOW
Mario Kart 8 -Animal Crossing DLC being released a early
And SMT x FE is not vaporware and will be out next year.

The only things that disappointed me were how late in the year Yoshi's Woolly World and Xenoblade X were being released. And no word(or trailer) on StarFox.

Oh well, still another month and a half til E3....



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Begins Takedown Proceedings on Super ...:

Well no sh@! this was gonna happen.
If you use any copyrighted material that's NOT YOURS without the explicit written consent of the original IP owner it will be taken down, simple as that.

What surprises me are the idiots that keep trying to do it.



MaverickHunterX commented on Sega Producer Explains Exactly What Went Wron...:

This is what you do to fix Sonic:
1. Take the gameplay from Sonic Unleash's -Daytime Stages-,
2. And the world hub from Sonic Adventure 1.

That's it.

No "Colors"-esque power ups, no Werehog, no anti-gravity, no laser-tethers, no team-up attacks. Anything other than the two things I mentioned above, burn it, and fire anyone at Sega who thinks otherwise.



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: The Limited Edition Battle With...:

I'm all for having a "REAL" preorder system in place, i.e. opening preorders months ahead of release and them actually producing enough to fulfill those preorders.

And Nintendo needs to allow people to order stuff directly from their website, and some preorders need to locked out to people who don't have a registered a current-gen Nintendo console and/or an active NN account.

Doing that should eliminated a lot of the scalpers.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (North America):

Bought the PS3 version of One Piece Unlimited World RED 'cuz there was a physical version on that platform, it should here by tomorrow.

Other than that, I'm still playing the hell out of Mario Kart 8 online, and catching up on the new summer anime.



MaverickHunterX commented on Video: Midna's Unique Fighting Style Brings Ex...:

Ah Midna, quite possibly Link's best companion.....ah screw it, she IS his best companion. Link will never have another one as compelling as her.

Definitely looking forward to using her in Hyrule Warriors. Now if only she could be added to SSBU/3DS.



MaverickHunterX commented on Capcom Could Be Up For Sale After Shareholders...:

My ideal situation:
Nintendo gets MegaMan, Monster Hunter, Pheonix Wright
Platinum Games gets back Resident Evil, Strider, and Devil May Cry
Suda51/Grasshopper Studios get Viewtiful Joe and Okami
Arc System Works gets Street Fighter
Bandai-Namco gets Breath of Fire and Dragon's Dogma



MaverickHunterX commented on Mario Kart Month: Expanding the Universe of Ma...:


^^This guy, he gets it.
It's probably the best explanation on why a "Nintendo Kart" game simply would not work thematically.

And those of you that keep bringing up Sonic All-Star Racing, it didn't work there either. Hell, the whole game is based around "Sonic driving a car".

Yeah, the guy who RUNS fast enough to break the sound barrier, driving a car. That concept was broken from the get-go.



MaverickHunterX commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

Never cared much for Battle Mode.
In my opinion, it always seemed half-baked, boring, and a completely unnecessary.

And if that's the biggest flaw in this game, then MK8 is looking more like a 10/10 for me.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Direct: Special Mario Kart 8 Direct S...:

Ugh, and another 30 days to go......
Would it kill them to bump up the release date just a little bit, like the 16th or something.

Now about the new characters: I'm fine with Baby Rosalina, but not Pink Gold Peach. That's just a lazy reskin, just like Metal Mario.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

I really prefer this approach the best, because it's the fastest, most direct way to get the information you want. Especially for those of us who really just want to get straight to the point: the games.

Don't care about the financial reports or market strategies or stage actors pretending to have "fun". I just want to see the games. Give me a new trailer and a release date, and I'm set.



MaverickHunterX commented on Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 13...:

It's about damn time!
This may the first ND I get to watch while I'm not at work.

For this ND, I'm expecting a reiteration of MK8's release date, more info on Smash Bros, Kirby Triple Deluxe, Mario Golf, maybe another trailer for DKC:TF, and Yoshi's New Island...that's about it.

Just like a few of the others on this site, I'm keeping my expectations low.
Though, I do hope for a few surprises.



MaverickHunterX commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Satoru Iwata's Nintendo...:

In my opinion, Mario Kart 8 definitely NEEDS to be out earlier, like either March or April. I agree with what Williaint said--as good as DKC:TR will be it's NOT Mario Kart. Mario Kart is more or less Nintendo's Call of Duty, that game just moves consoles. Hell, MKWii is STILL moving Wiis after all this time.

Now Smash Bros U/3DS, that should be released in May. Yarn Yoshi, Monolithsoft's X, Bayonetta 2, and Hyrule Warriors need to be out this year.

And while it is interesting that Nintendo has decided to release DS titles on the WiiU Virtual Console, they SHOULD really be releasing N64 & Gamecube titles on it. And maybe a few popular JP console & arcade titles that never made it west.

And while they're at, how about fortifying the Nintendo Network for the imminent arrival of MK8 & SSBU/3DS. Remember how the Pokemon Bank crippled the 3DS network in Japan for a month? Imagine that mess x30.



MaverickHunterX commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:

What I want to see on the WiiU in 2014?
Though HIGHLY unlikely, I'd like to see "X", Yarn Yoshi and Fire Emblem X SMT get released this year. But one could dream.

And maybe, just maybe during some ND this year we'll actually see a trailer for Zelda U, or Nintendo could let Platinum Games have a crack at Metroid. Why? One word. Vanquish.

Vanquish's gameplay + Metroid-style exploration = WIN.
