NINTENCHIP commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

@shaneoh You make good points, and that's the other side of this coin: Yea, it isn't tasteful, but it's not taboo worthy either. There's a line one should cross, based on the context of their society, before we get into that. Still, people going "it's no big deal" don't realize just how warped Japan's sex culture is. They had an issue somewhat recently where some young boys tried to start a, and I kid you not, "rape club". Yes...a "rape CLUB". Like, a club dedicated to extracurricular stalking, molestation, raping, and mind breaking. That, and "Battle Raper: The Game" was a thing. Then there's Sengoku Rance, and on the slightly less edgy side, there's Qwaser of Stigmata that's a thing. FYI: None of that is safe for work.

Still, this is all on another level in comparison to SKB, but that doesn't mean that SKB isn't comparable. There's gotta be some degree of class here, in some shape or form. I can't show this to people that aren't nerds or otakus/weabs without expecting weird looks and/or remarks. Hell, I'm the one that give my friends that own these games those same weird looks and/or remarks.

But even with all that said...it's not something to call people to arms against. If people wanna buy it, they can buy it. It's not truly sexist, so why not?

Side note: Guys like Thor and Cap America aren't objectified. They're idealized. If they had ball sacks hanging to the floor and a chain that could smack someone with a slight turn of the hips, then yea, that'd be comparable.

@Yorumi Well, respect for women =/= objectification of women. An objectified depiction of a person doesn't mean you don't respect that gender. It's just an objectified depiction of a person.

It shouldn't be banned by ANYONE. If gamers want it, they want it. Nintendo banning even this would only tarnish their rep more. It's already good/bad enough they don't have much in the way of violent games. This is really their only mature series they got on the 3DS.

NINTENCHIP commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

As for my own two cents:

1) The franchise crosses some lines, and it IS made purely for the gratification of male gamers. They can even be dressed up in pasties in the Vita game, for crying out loud. How would I know? A friend of mine has the Vita game. Total weab, so most Japan-stuff gets a pass from him. Including the rape stuff.

2) Sexually objectified characters aren't exactly sexist. It can be seen as demeaning, but you're not coming to any broad conclusions based on sex. You're not discriminating either. It's just a stupid character design choice solely to make men think with their peanuts. Not ban-worthy, but it's peculiar.

3) Lastly, I think women want to see themselves as desirable as possible when playing a game...but this is a "no". Men don't get the features thrown in a mess when designing men, but they do for girls, for some reason. If they're gonna make big boobs, at LEAST don't make the physics look like the freaking moon landing, or DoA on the PSP. They "plop", not bounce around in 30 directions. Part of the issue is that they don't even move in a way that even somewhat resembles real jiggly bits. It's creepy, and if they fixed that about the physics, it would definitely settle better with gamers, even if only by a little bit. THEN we could get to the other stuff (ages, costume choices, the whole "tearing" thing...)

@JaxonH I guess, but I'd like to have seen something at least somewhat different. Maybe a brawler with a similar theme? Maybe something that's a bit more of a "bigger, more complete experience"? They're usually so straight forward: "Jump/Shoot the bosses. Jump/Shoot the big boss. Credits.". I'd like to see some flexibility with his game design.

NINTENCHIP commented on Keiji Inafune And Inti Creates Announce Azure ...:

Ya know what? I'm sort of getting tired of this same song and dance. This is why I don't whine about Nintendo and how it reuses IPs. This guy's behind two new IPs now, and THEY BOTH PLAY LIKE FREAKING MEGA MAN. That's the freaking difference between a new IP and a new way to play. You can make 1,000 new faces, but I won't be impressed if I realize they all should be one face.

I can understand M.N.9, but now this game is also a "Mega Man-ish" game. It's sad that this guy can't escape that one style of game play.

NINTENCHIP commented on Senran Kagura 2's Japanese Website Bounces Int...:

@thelastgogeta Dude, the PS Vita version has pasties, and beating any character enough removes part of their undergarments (either top or bottom), but it's censored. At least Tekken has the decency to leave the more revealing looks to the more revealing clothing, like swim wear. They don't just shove everyone into lingerie for their default get-ups, nor do they tear them off, nor do they give people nothing but skimpy clothing to wear.

DoA...I ain't vouching for that...

NINTENCHIP commented on Talking Point: Sonic and the Wii U Both Seek a...:

The look isn't too disturbing, outside of Knuckles, really. However, this game sounds, and will be, absolutely horrid. The REAL problem with Sonic is that he doesn't stick to what works, and then he does something horrid. Right now, he's left the Unleashed (daytime) style of game play, only to go all parkour, which didn't work. Now he's mixing Knuckles Chaotix with open worlds and and action adventure? Can we just have Sonic be a freaking action platformer, and then have him STAY that way? I play Sonic games to move fast, jump around, fly through turns, and speed into goal rings, not "focus on combat and exploration".

NINTENCHIP commented on Guide: How To Become The Ultimate Monster Bree...:

@GuSilverFlame Ok, I don't have a 6 IV ditto at all, and getting 4-5 IV pokemon isn't incredibly hard. It might take longer than usual, but you can bridge the gap by using preexisting 5 IV males that you may have bred (if eligible). It makes things easier.

Example: I wanted a Sylveon bred for battle, so I used a 3 IV Ditto and bred it with a 5 IV Vaporeon I already had in my team. Ended up with a female, 5 IV, Modest Sylveon. Not bad, I'd say.

NINTENCHIP commented on Pokémon X & Y Update Mandatory for Online Pla...:

@Fillytase Justifying Instacheck to cheat your way to what should be a rare and valuable pokemon is just as scumbag as justifying the battle analyzer (ironic since one lead to the other, huh?). The value of shiny pokemon decreases drastically when you can just guarantee yourself that you can get one. People need to stop giving cheaters, of ANY kind, leeway to cheat. It's not fair for those who grind multiple days of egg hatching to make their competitive Trick Room teams, or those who spend days trying to chain for 3 IV pokes and shinies.

NINTENCHIP commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@Dave24 They can be done well. Look at Samus, Peach, Chun-Li (to a lesser degree, sure), and Lara Croft. All are mainstay names for gamers everywhere, and are female. The point is to make a good character, not force one down our throats like Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII.

Also, yes, Peach is a GOOD female character. She gets the point across and the job done, as designed. At this point, you can't even imagine Mario games without Peach being that damsel in distress. As a female character, she's actually an important piece of the Mario franchise, just like how Yoshi's the steed, Luigi's the lesser bro., Bowser's the villain, so on and so on. To cover bases, Rosalina can handle herself much better than Peach can (and save the universe by stopping a black hole with a crap ton of Lumas and becoming an entity of sorts), so for that, I say Peach is a good character.

@mookysam Although, in that case, that same reviewer sounds a crap ton like this woman RIGHT NOW. There's blurred lines here, whether people admit it or not. I am the first to put down games like Dragon's Crown and Senran Burst for how they depict women, but I'm also smart enough to know that bringing in women's rights into every single aspect of gaming in such a non-subtle manner changes it from a nice sentiment to being stupidly annoying. There's a time and place, and maybe she would have done better if she wasn't being all loud about it.

@Mario500 Wow...just goes to show two things.

1) Mario's appeal was hella-strong.

2) Nintendo has money like "DAMN" if they can pull the plug on a winning show because they were just "done" with it. Not sure if I admire their focus in what they're doing, or if I'm flabbergasted by their lunacy in doing that. Either way...wow...

As much as this is upsetting news, what better time to kick the bucket than after a long life, topped with a year dedicated to the character you're known for playing? It sucks that he's dead now, but there's fewer better ways to go.

NINTENCHIP commented on Pokémon X & Y Online Battles Vulnerable to "B...:

@Bulby It's a slippery slope. First people hack to make Pokemon because they "could have" made them that way legitimately, then they start doing this because it's "not hurting anyone else" or "they could have made that move". NO cheating is justified in a competitive environment. Not the raising part, not the battling part, not the trading part. It's hard to stay positive about Pokemon's online scene when people love to ruin it all the time.

NINTENCHIP commented on First Impressions: Stardust Amazoness:

@Falchion It's not sexist against women. It IS using sex appeal as an obvious method to get people to buy this otherwise poorly presented (and most likely bad) game. It's standard otaku-bait affair, but that's not usually "good" for non-otakus...which is most people. >_>

I mean, I like anime and junk, but if you're gonna feed me pron as a reason to buy a game, why wouldn't I just go watch pron and play a better game?

NINTENCHIP commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Clarifies That Local Multipla...:

Online co-op multiplayer in platformers isn't exactly the best thing for a polished experience. Saying "Nintendo needs to get with the times" clearly shows a lack of interest in quality control. I'd rather they wait until they're confident they can pull it off, rather than shove it in just because. Not EVERY dang game needs online multi-player. Sometimes, it just makes the game worse, like the new Batman.

NINTENCHIP commented on Out Now: Pokémon X & Y 3DS XL Models Arrive i...:

@MasterGraveheart The biggest upgrade is the battery life (huge increase), and the biggest trade-off is that it won't be pocket-sized anymore. Outside of that, it's your call. I'm kind of used to XLs now, but there's nothing really wrong with the normal 3DS.

Also, I think it's harder to break the hinge connecting the screens on the XL.

Well NO DUH. Nintendo fans eat platformers up for breakfast. Black Knight wasn't even GOOD and it did well. Secret Rings? Average (nice soundtrack though). Fans will eat your stuff up. Just keep making fast platformers to compliment our Mario games. You got this, SEGA!
