The iPad is portable, fast and light. I love the Gamepad, but it is not portable, it is also relatively slow and heavy. The iPad's capacitive touch screen is also much more responsive than the Gamepad's resistive touch screen. Shooting for iPad parity is a nice idea, but the Gamepad is not even close to being as versatile. I'm hoping Nintendo is working on that problem for their next system, but that is likely still many years away.

Nareva commented on Review: LEGO The Hobbit (Wii U):

That's a shame. I probably would have bought this at a 7 after a price discount, but 4 is just too low. My gaming time is limited enough that I generally disregard anything rated 6 or below. There are exceptions, but they are few.

Other than Xenoblade, which I haven't played, I would much rather Nintendo worked on new games. If they do more HD ports it should be of older games. SMG is great, but way too recent. Maybe more GC games like Wind Waker, which was excellent.

I really don't care either way if people want to play these kinds of hyper-sexualized games, but I find it somewhat ironic that Nintendo Life is so vigilant about protecting its readership from the corrupting power of "coarse" language in comments, but is completely fine with this kind of sexual content, once even chiming in with a breast referencing pun for an article on this game. For my part, I'm much more tolerant of "bad" language than I am of sexual language among my friends and in my home. I'm just curious why Nintendo Life is okay with one type of "adult content" and not the other.

I'm about 25 hours and loving it. The last half dozen RPGs I've played didn't hold my attention, so this is great. And I really love the ability to turn off encounters entirely. I rarely do it, but it's a great feature, especially when going through an area with weak enemies where battles are of no benefit. Looking forward to the sequel.

This made me laugh. I could imagine doing this with my brothers when I was a kid. It would be funny at first, then the humor would wear off, but stick with it and it becomes even more hilarious. It's certainly an achievement.

Nareva commented on Review: Angry Birds Star Wars (Wii U):

I had a lot of fun eating up time with Angry Birds in waiting rooms and between classes in my grad student years, but haven't played it for quite some time. And this is definitely overpriced.

Nareva commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Readers' Award...:

Strange that the best first party Wii U games and the best overall Wii U games were the same games, but in a different order. How can I go about my day not knowing definitively whether people like Pikmin 3 or Windwaker HD more? It's a nightmare!

Good list though.

Nareva commented on Nintendo Download: 26th December (North America):

@Beau_Skunk If you own a game on Wii VC and transfer it over to the Wii U, you will get a discount if you buy it on Wii U VC. NES games cost $1. SNES, $1.50. I've already done it with the two NES Zelda games and Super Mario World on the SNES. Unfortunately there's no similar deal for the 3DS.

@jayclayx Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't online play cost something on PS3 and PS4? So not exactly free services then.

Edit: Upon further inspection, I see Home is free. If the price makes you unhappy, I suggest you skip it.

I'm really enjoying this so far. The stamps, like in SM3DW, are actually a really fun collectible. Making ridiculous Miiverse posts with them is pretty entertaining.

@JaxonH You talk a big game, a somewhat convincing one. I've been wondering if that would be to my liking. I've never been hugely into strategy games, but it's another genre I've wanted to try. If I do, I'll definitely start with that game. Thanks for the recommendation.

Nareva commented on Bravely Default North American Demo To Include...:

I just bought a 3DS XL, partly hoping to find the game that scratches that RPG itch without boring me to tears. I haven't finished a "traditional" RPG, by that I mean the old-style Dragon Warrior and NES/SNES FF, for over ten years. The grinding grinds me down until I just become apathetic and stop playing. I tried with Etrian Odyssey II and Shiren the Wanderer and, later, one of the revamped early FFs on iOS. I still like the idea of RPGs, I just haven't found one that keeps me interested. This meaty demo should give me a good idea if this game will do it.

@HugoSmits Dude, you did not just equate a female gendered character to a character with a handicap! You did not!

But you're right, it is Inafune's creative work and he's not going to let some low-level employee dictate how the game will progress. This whole thing is totally blown out of proportion.

@Yorumi I would agree that deleting her tweets was a poor decision. I also think if it's true that she doesn't know much about the series, people might have a legitimate gripe. That said, if it were a man, no one would be screaming 'bloody feminism' because of a female robot sketch and this whole thing would not be happening. If it were a guy, we would probably never hear about it because no one would care.

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

@Yorumi I'm skeptical about the dishonesty and nepotism and I think they've both been blown out of proportion, and yes, done so because she is a woman or at least because she is not a man.

The claim of dishonesty is based on two tweets. One said she was "never an MM player" and another said something about MegaMan X being her favorite. That's it! Two tweets that seem confusing, but that could be easily clarified. Maybe she played X, but never played the originals? I don't know. I don't care. Calling someone a liar based on those two tweets is absurd and petty. How about, you know, asking her about it?!

And the nepotism, also ridiculous. She possibly got a job there because she has friends who also work there. How many people do you think got a job there because they knew Inafune? Is that also nepotism/favoritism? No, it's called networking, and that's how millions of people get introduced to people who are looking to hire.

And no, I would not defend some guy with sexist views.

@HugoSmits Haha! A Christian robot. That would be something to see.

But you're mis-paraphrasing me. I didn't say using 'feminazi' hints to underlying ignorance, though that may be true, but to an underlying belief that women should not be making particular decisions.

But the Christian robot question is another false equivalence. Religion and gender are not comparable characteristics in this argument. Religion is a personal choice, rooted in society, culture and, often, nationality. Gender is a state of birth. We can choose our religion. We can't choose to be born male or female.
