I posted one video with Mario Kart TV, the next day I had a copyright claim against me in my email. I never used it again. It felt like Nintendo put that feature in it's game in hopes of making a few nickels off of it's fanbase. Like some sort of weird reverse DLC.



Noonch commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Nintendo is turning their Youtube content into a state sponsored news channel essentially. They have a short(relatively) approved list of games you can talk about and if they don't like what you have to say they can take all the profits. The old dog can't seem to learn new tricks.



Noonch commented on Meta Knight amiibo to be Best Buy Exclusive in US:

Toys R Us is doing 3 Amiibos for $30 on Friday and I'm getting 1 free with my preorder but I don't even know which ones I want besides Samus, Villager, and Little Mac (when it comes out). The exclusives will probably be just on my radar as collectables but I'm not too interested in the exclusive characters.



Noonch commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update Will Unlock amiib...:

@scamander So I suppose you have some strong feelings about this Amiibo thing. I'm just saying they're scrambling to justify their existence. I'll probably pick up a few just as overpriced figures to have around. Obviously it's not going to be a huge thing for Nintendo outside of the fanboys who own WiiU right now. The big test will be when it hits 3DS.



Noonch commented on Mario Kart 8 Software Update Will Unlock amiib...:

My guess is that, like Smash, it's going to be Mii hats and costumes. Nintendo is trying to do as little as possible to make Amiibo a thing. It's like someone said, "Amiibo has to be out by Christmas so make it do something!". They should have developed a Skylanders/Disney Infinity ripoff game to go with them.



Noonch commented on Shovel Knight is Burying Sales Expectations:

I don't think people read the articles before complaing. The only thing I see about Kickstarter is that Velasco and Wozniak discuss what it's like to run a successful Kickstarter campaign.



Noonch commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

Everyone knows who to blame here. It's fun and disappointing to watch it all burn. Nintendo claimed 2014 was going to be their year but I think it's worse than last year. There are literally no games coming out that have me excited (not Smash/Hyrule/Bayonetta). My most anticipated game this year was Shovel Knight. I only bought MK8 so I could get Pikmin 3. My 3DS has been for eshop games only this year. E3 was a fun distraction but really just a way of saying "we have nothing right now but maybe in the future..." I feel better.



Noonch commented on Steel Diver: Sub Wars Version 3.0 in Developme...:

I'm really surprised that they keep updating this. I'd like to see sales figures on this game. No one ever talks about Rusty's Real Deal Baseball anymore so this must be the free to play winner. I'd like to see an HD version for WiiU. Give me a Silver Pike II! No, a Platinum Pike!



Noonch commented on Video: DJ Jazzy Jeff, Jeremy Ellis and The Roo...:

I was underwhelmed by both but since Jeff actually had to hit his mark and the other guy just triggered samples.....Jeff wins. I can play rhythm with my left hand and trigger samples with my right. The programming is the difficult part of sampling. What I can't do is ever get a record to go back to the original point. It takes a lighter touch than I can achieve.



Noonch commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

This is barely news. The headline needs "sort of" added to the end. Seeing Nintendo evolve is like watching a baby grow up. This would be on par with saying Nintendo is potty trained because one time it poo pooed in the potty while it was strapped to a toilet all day.
