Morph commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

As much as im looking forward to smash bros, I'm quite intrigued to see what he moves onto next. Kid Icarus U? Or something different altogether?

Morph commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

Probably nothing for me again this week, that's 2 weeks in a row now. I already have steamworld on 3ds and the price isnt cheap enough to double dip, not particularly interested in the mario kart dlc either

Morph commented on The Console Wars Live On As Night Trap Remake ...:

Comical, i bet nintendo didnt even know they existed, probably still dont. The stupid thing is, i know a lot of ppl from that era of sega gaming who have found their home on nintendo platforms now. So they've cut a big chunk out of their potential market by not including wii u, how petty for something that happened 20yrs ago

Morph commented on Review: Steel Empire (3DS eShop):

Definitely too high of a price, this is the issue with download only games for me. I'm never going to pay the same price for a download as I would for a retail game. I'm on the side of the fence that still likes my games to be physical copies. Realistically I can never see myself paying over £15 for a download only game. I think the most i've ever spent is on child of light and phoenix 4 and that was only when it went on offer

Dumbmove from nintendo letting him go. I've only heard good things about him from indie developers and if he really was as instrumental as he seems to nintendo's changing stance on indies, then they've dropped a right clanger here.

Insight like this just goes to show if nintendo do ever make it to the 21st century, then they will be dragged there kicking and screaming

Always found it strange that nintendo didn't pick up cing, they already published a few of their games and obviously hold some rights to the games too. They were a very good studio and I think nintendo missed an opportunity to bring them under their umbrella.

Morph commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

My first console was a master system, played alex kidd to death and wonder boy 3 was probably my favourite game. I was probably a little too young for the likes of phantasy star at the time and i probably only owned 8-10 games for it. I dont think it was a fantastic console, but it had some fantastic games.

And that's what happens when you read crap like the sun. This is the second or third article posted on this site by that rag from memory, I like visiting this site, but if I see another article reported on then I wont be coming here again.

Morph commented on Vblank Entertainment Provides Sales Threshold ...:

If this had been on the Wii u eshop I might have considered it, but it isn't and there's a superior version on the 3DS. I know he wanted to keep his word which is commendable, but he can't be surprised that it hasn't reached the targets needed yet. Plus he's still got 8 months for it to happen, maybe he should have pitched it at a lower price

Morph commented on Pier Solar HD Delayed, Wii U Version Will Now ...:

@WanderingPB The thing is, it may not even be that there is a bug in it, it may be something silly like a cultural reference or something petty, that Microsoft want them to change. Then all the other versions have to be held up because of that change, due to Microsofts policy of a game having to be on their console first or at the same time as other machines.

Morph commented on Moon Chronicles to Hit Europe in Q4 This Year,...:

Im not sure I understand renegade kids problem with releasing in europe, the rules are the rules just get on with it, can they afford to forgo revenue by not releasing titles?

I know this one is getting released and in this case it makes sense to distribute it as 1 download, but in future i hope they dont let the european rules dissuade them from releasung here

Morph commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

Theres been advertising in games since the 80's maybe even before, ir's nothing new and doesn't bother me in the slightest. The kart does look a bit wierd, but if i dont like it I just wont use it. Simples

Morph commented on Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary Editi...:

@electrolite77 you're getting away from the original point that I think having a moan about it isn't going to make any difference. You obviously think it does and good luck to you, I don't think it does and nothing you've said so far has changed my mind. So we'll just have to agree to differ on this one.

Morph commented on Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary Editi...:

@electrolite77 no they are aware of it because other companies offered it first, and then yes of course after that people have suggested it, but they already know about it and have acknowledged that it may be something they will look at in future. Nintendo by their own admission were much later to the online party than sony and microsoft so they have been playing catch up to an extent. They appear to be rectifying these issues, but like i keep saying - in their own time.

As for revenue, does it really lose them that much? I'm not so sure, asside from virtual console i cant think of that many titles on both 3ds and wii u. It may become a bigger issue with the next consoles, but at the minute id hardly call cross buy a deal maker or breaker for many people

Morph commented on Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary Editi...:

@electrolite77 i'm clearly not talking about every situation throughout history, i'm talking about this particular issue. Whether it reflects well on Nintendo is moot, they will do their own thing the way they always have. Do you honestly think your 'heavy lifting' over a third party download only title will make a jot of difference? Of course it won't. Like I said before, Nintendo are aware of fans wanting an account based system which might feature things like cross buy, but it's not here yet and it'll be here when they are ready to do it, which in all likelihood won't be at least until the next handheld comes out. Whether you choose to buy this particular title on a Nintendo platform or not will not make an iota of difference to that.

Morph commented on Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary Editi...:

@electrolite77 no you can complain about it if you want but it puzzles me why you would, it's completely futile. We all knew there wouldn't be any sort of cross-buy before it was announced because that's not how nintendo operate at the moment, would it have made it better if they had only released it on 1 of the nintendo platforms, then we wouldn't be having this conversation. People would just be moaning instead that it wasn't on wii u or wasn't on 3ds. Should I start moaning that Pullblox world isn't on 3ds, even though the first two were, or that it isn't cross-buy even though the title doesn't exist on 3ds. Nintendo do things their own way and on their own terms, they'll get round to an account system when they are happy with it and we may get cross buy then, until then i'm not going to moan about it because it achieves nothing, my advice would be just buy the game on your platform of choice and enjoy it.

Morph commented on Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary Editi...:

@electrolite77 and i'm saying they haven't. The pricing versus any of those platforms is nothing to do with Nintendo for a kick off so any of those complaints should be directed to the publisher. What's the price on Sony platforms?

It seems strange to me to complain about something you know to be the case already, we know nintendo doesn't do cross buy yet so why complain about it.
