MeddlingIdiot commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

I can see why Nintendo opted against including same sex marriage in this game, as it would have be localised by each country/state individually, rather than region in order to avoid potential backlash. Still, it's disappointing it has to be this way in 2014.

MeddlingIdiot commented on You Can Now Pre-Order eShop Games Via Nintendo...:

For this title it actually makes a bit of sense because of the game's promotional price for the the first couple of weeks after release. It means that someone can actually snare themselves a deal right now, instead of forgetting about the release and having to pay full price sometime later.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:

I personally don't mind waiting for this as long as the Gamepad is being utilised properly. Deus Ex certainly benefited from having the touch screen implemented and Watch Dogs seems kind of similar to that game. So yeah, if it's going to be worth the wait, then so be it.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

@JohnRedcorn I see your point but the difference is sports coaches can make immediate changes. It's a lot harder to bring in changes when you have a new-ish product on the market, especially one that you hoped would have a 5-6 lifespan. People hope for change when a new political leader is brought in, but they usually end up wading through the mess and red tape the previous leader had left in place, instead of actually enforcing changes for the better.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

Why do some people think that firing Iwata will be an overnight fix for Nintendo's dismal sales? It's not going to help Nintendo release more games, or even rush a new console out the gate. Iwata knows the situation better than anybody and if he wants to carry on as president of Nintendo, then I think we should respect that.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Nintendo Direct Focusing On Wii U And 3DS Game...:

@Ony Well I think Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze has been finished for a while now personally. It seems a lot of people think it got pushed back to stagger releases throughout Q1 2014, although that could be incorrect. So a new Metroid could well be in development by now, and I wouldn't be surprised after Reggie's skirting around the subject on VGX.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Feature: 12 Days of Christmas - Pikmin 3 Final...:

It took me a little while to get into Pikmin 3 due to the Wii Remote, Nunchuk and Gamepad combination, but as soon as I got the workflow down I absolutely loved the experience. The attention to detail in Pikmin 3 was incredible, I especially liked the descriptions of the fruit (not just their given names). Wonderful stuff.

@Zael Your interpretation of a feminist is completely misinformed. There may be some male-hating women out there but that is not a feminist by definition. Feminism is about women wanting equal rights to men (and rightly so). It's no wonder some women still feel oppressed when this sort of backlash takes place.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Parent Trap: StreetPass Makes Social Networks ...:

I wonder if Nintendo will ever bring StreetPass to the Wii U? Collect hits on the 3DS and then through NNID have them made available on Wii U, or at least the earned Play Coins. I guess I'd just love to see more interaction between the two systems.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Rumour: Smash Bros. Heading for a Spring 2014 ...:

@IceClimbers I agree, but based on Sakurai's previous releases I think 2014 is quite optimistic. Regarding the rumoured Spring release, considering the game is still in development it's unlikely Nintendo could pull of the localisation and necessary promotion by then. I honestly think they'll stagger all major first party releases in future anyway, just in case there happens to be any third party delays (Rayman Legends anyone?)

MeddlingIdiot commented on Rumour: Smash Bros. Heading for a Spring 2014 ...:

I can't see it coming out anytime close to Mario Kart 8's arrival unfortunately, which is due by Spring if it's to fall within this fiscal year. Nintendo have made a point of spacing out releases throughout 2014, so that there's no repeat of the drought of games we saw earlier this year. We'll be lucky to see Smash before 2015.

MeddlingIdiot commented on Review: 3D Sonic The Hedgehog (3DS eShop):

I played this from start to finish over the weekend, which was the first time in 20 years. I've dabbled with the various re-releases since then but this is the definitive version in my experience. Not the best Sonic game but easily worth the asking price. I hope we see other entries in the series get the 3D makeover.

MeddlingIdiot commented on M2 Developed a "Virtual" Sega Console for 3D S...:

Just had a quick whirl through the Green Hill and Marble zones. It looks and plays great, and there's a ton of different options in the settings menu. Easily the best 3D remake I've experienced so far, definitely worth the £4.09 asking price. Also, no 50Hz slowdown this time around. :-)
