Moshugan commented on Animal Crossing Helped This Artist Get Through...:

Here's one source Google gave me that deals with the cherry claim:

It seems cherries do have benefits against some types of cancer (colorectal is mentioned specifically) but it's a far cry from @Dolphin64 's claim that "There is a chemical in Cherries that basically make Cancer cells commit suicide. Live on a diet that consistently consists of Cherries however long it needs, and you'll start to see the Cancer effects fade away."

Studies show that anthocyanins in cherries "inhibit the growth of cancer cells and stimulate their self-destruction, without affecting healthy cells" and studies on dietary fibers "suggest it reduces cells’ exposure to cancer-causing substances" because "Healthful gut bacteria use dietary fiber to produce short-chain fatty acids that protect colon cells."

But clinical human studies are far from conclusive: "Researchers cannot yet translate the clinical trial findings on perillyl alcohol to how consuming cherries may affect cancer development."

There seem to be beneficial compounds in cherries but it's not clear how well the benefits are utilized just by eating them.

@Dolphin64 Not to be rude, but if you were to provide a source for your cherry flavored claims it would most likely prove itself to be BS.

My mom might be facing a recurrence with her cancer, and I feel it would be stupid to not utilize the medical help provided by well trained doctors. She wouldn't be here if it weren't for the great medical expertise of our health care.

It's true that chemo is a crude way to treat cancer, but - apart from some unexpected miracle through prayer - it seems to be the only viable way to fight this disease at the moment.



Moshugan commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:

Even Nintendo doesn't know what the next system will be - yet!

Nintendo announced NX now just to confirm that they are not abandoning the tradition of making their proprietary hardware for their proprietary games.

"We will not merely port games developed for our dedicated systems to smart devices just as they are — we will develop brand new software which perfectly matches the play style and control mechanisms of smart devices.”
The ultimate goal: to drive tablet and phone users to Nintendo’s hardware such that they “eventually become fans of our dedicated systems.”"

The thing about NX being the "marriage of the software with the hardware that together creates a compelling experience" is what Nintendo has ALWAYS done. So they've revealed no actual details of the next hardware yet.



Moshugan commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

I'd actually like for Nintendo to try their own internet-based digital distribution, digital rights management, multiplayer, and social networking platform (such as Valve's Steam is).

I mean, I would gladly forego buying a dedicated Nintendo device if I could play the same games. This kind of platform would allow Nintendo to focus on software and game experiences and online services instead of developing costly hardware, but still let them keep all rights and give them full DRM.

This wouldn't even have to replace their own consoles, but be a "third pillar" just like this mobile deal is.



Moshugan commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

People are reading quite much into this.
NX could simply stand for

  • Nintendo "X" (as in Nintendo "unknown/insert the new console name here")
  • NeXt (as in the next console in line)

Anyway, the wording "dedicated game platform" gives room for many interpretations.
I do hope they stick with the distinct home console and portable console duo, but unify the architecture and the OS, so that cross-everything will be possible.



Moshugan commented on The Happy Mask Salesman is Teased for a Reappe...:

The most likely and easiest to do for Nintendo would be Hyrule Warriors DLC.

Although as many have pointed out, the new Zelda for Wii U will probably take place in the Majora/Twilight timeline, so it wouldn't be too far out for him to make an appearance.



Moshugan commented on Video: Watch The Virtual Boy's Galactic Pinbal...:

The Wario Land video's 3D was too intense!

Everything was too separated. It looked unnatural and made my eyes do a lot of work. I hope this one's more moderate. You don't have to crank the depth to the fullest just coz.



Moshugan commented on Review: Puzzle Monkeys (Wii U eShop):

This just goes to show how an alright game might be marred by lacklustre audiovisuals.
It's way harder to make Simple 3D look good than simple 2D. Imagine if this game had pixel art or crisp cartoon presentation. It might get a higher score and reception even if it were the same game.



Moshugan commented on Nintendo Download: 12th February (Europe):

Gonna download Majora's Mask because it's part of the MM Special Edition New 3DS package in Europe. ;)

Also, I so much wanna buy Monster Hunter 4 since "this is another special experience from Capcom", but I'm not sure "If [I'm] up for the investment in time"!



Moshugan commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

@Franklin Puppets for Star Fox would be the way to go! Just like the legend says Miyamoto originally visioned them. ^_^
Maybe it's just me, but I think Mario and Zelda shows could work with Mario and Link NOT being the main characters.
Either way, I think Zelda especially needs a serial with a clear story arch and set lenght with a beginning and an end. Mario would benefit from a story line (like the old Super Mario World manga had) as well.



Moshugan commented on ​Sakurai Considered Having All Fighters Unlo...:

Heck, the more there is to unlock the better. Even if the first bunch come easily, there's still the feeling of achieving something instead of it all being just handed to you.
I kept waiting for more unlockable stages but they never came.

@MoonKnight7 @crome66 @RCMADIAX
@ninjapigstudios: "It's actually my little brothers game. He's 14 and made the game himself and wanted me to publish it." (From the twitter link RCMADIAX provided)

I think he's honest about the young developer bit. I think they're just a bit juvenile and don't know the ropes yet.

I think the whole Jumpy Cat thing was a mixture of being reckless and not checking everything thoroughly, not thinking it through before going forward with the thing, and of them being disrespectful to other people's rights.
In other words it was a stupid mistake and they made it worse by not being humble enough to admit it right away.

hopefully this experience will teach them to conduct themselves in a better way from now on.



Moshugan commented on Ninja Pig Studios Accused Of Stealing Pixel Ar...:

@Mercy_Lost "Anyway, I'm sure everyone will learn the true power of forgiveness soon enough, as well as how easy it is to make original pixel designs if you put your mind to it!"
LOL, maybe Mr. Schuetz should use @PhotonStorm 's pixel art tutorials to make new assets for their game.

Dear @ninjapigstudios if you want to still release your game, you should change the game's art and name, and give full credit and fair share to the "young developer".



Moshugan commented on Video: TreeFall Studios Releases Its First Eve...:

It hurts so much because this is not a case of them being cynical devs who make shoddy ports or movie licence games for a quick buck, but rather, these games are the best they can do!
It's so cute how they're trying so hard.

They're obviously very enthusiastic and hope to become better devs, but I think it was a bad move to start releasing stuff this early and for such a high-profile platform as Wii U.
They should've acquired more experience and studied more to build up their workmanship and then attempted to make a good game.

I study video games and the first thing we were told was that your first TEN games will be crap. So maybe TreeFall's eleventh game will be something decent, haha! :D
I sincerely hope that these guys will be able to continue making games and pursuing their dreams. It's sadly not a given that you will be able to support yourself and your family by following your passions.^
I'm afraid for myself that I won't be talented enough in the future for this kind of a job.

Making games is no easy job!



Moshugan commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS Could Be a...:

I can't seem to find any word on how well the head tracking 3D adjusting works in a poorly lit environment?
I'm afraid that it's going to act up and mess up the screen if it's on and you play with your lights turned down.



Moshugan commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Hits Japan on 29th April:

The game looks awesome otherwise, but the human models look hideous! Like some weird Japanese dolls!

That lion dude looks awesome, the robots are wicked cool, the monsters and animals are beautiful and the scenery is breathtaking, but what the boink is going on with those human character faces??

If they tried to go for a manga-ish style, they failed horribly. This kills the game for me.

EDIT: On top of it all, the faces are so lifeless, without a shred of emotion. They should've taken note from Skyward Sword. That game has low poly chars but they're filled with feeling!
