Olmectron commented on Video: Check Out Ganondorf's Terrifying Triden...:

@rjejr You can't really call Twilight Princess' Wii control scheme a "motion" play. You just swinged the Wiimote whatever way you wanted, and the sword still acted depending on your pressed buttons (if camera centered, or if UP-stick), and not on how you swinged the Wiimote.

It just felt bad, even the fishing with Wiimote wasn't accurate at all. I never understood the fuss around it, I preferred a thousand times the GameCube version.

None knows anything yet about Zelda for Wii U, but it's easy to predict they won't include a real multiplayer portion, if they even try to add it at all. So, only point of having a "superior" NX version would be... 4K resolution, at 60 fps? I think they'll save that for the NX2.

But if you were talking about Hyrule Warriors for NX, well, I'd like to see that, too. Maybe they could even add a Coliseum Mode, with 1 on 1 mode, where each player can only see what they're doing through their own Gamepad. Oh, wait.



Olmectron commented on Wii U eShop Exclusive Temple of Yog Will Begin...:

@Spoony_Tech I think I understand what you're saying, but that means you're not getting what the pricing is:

The FULL game will cost USD$5.99 if you buy it when it releases. You'll get the other "epochs" for free, no more payments!

As more content is released, the price is incremented. But whenever you buy it, it's only one payment! It's different from Moon Chronicles episodic payment model.



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Download: 19th November (Europe):

@BaffleBlend I hope it gets here too. However, I won't be positive about that.

Several Wii virtual console games have not gotten here yet (but are already in Europe), as well as several DS games (DS Fire Emblem, Zelda Phantom Hourglass, Zelda Spirit Tracks). Let's hope AC:WW doesn't add to that list.



Olmectron commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Release Date Quirks in N...:

@Bagels Yeah. That's the kind of thing that puts me down with a game.

And, in the case of media sites, I try to avoid knowing so I don't enter the articles when I don't want to read about them. But many times the thing is spoiled, said, in the title or subtitle! Not much to do in those cases.

About the fandom, I simply don't talk to anyone or enter any forum/chat who likes or own the Japanese game. That's happening right now, for example, with Fire Emblem: Fates. I don't known a single thing, and I'm happy not entering forums nor chats. And fortunately (yes, I said that), I don't have any local friend who likes the series.



Olmectron commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Release Date Quirks in N...:

@scamander So right about that. And even like that, none of the 3DS Layton games were released here in America in other language than English.

They could have added the European Spanish and French translations (that were already done). But just no. This is just me complaining about not having Layton in the language I prefer.



Olmectron commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Release Date Quirks in N...:

I lost my excitement for The Wonderful 101 last year. It was launched later in America, and SO many websites (including this one) were already posting many articles about cool stuff in the game (like some easter eggs that were better to discover when playing the game) since the European release. It just didn't feel right.

For Yoshi's Woolly World, they (the media sites) were at least more reserved and I didn't see that many articles of it more than the amiibo, before the NA release.

That's the reason I've not gotten The Wonderful 101 yet, and the reason I already got Yoshi's Woolly World first day.

I wish I could get away from the Internet when games I like get released on some other regions before mine, but that's unfortunately not possible.



Olmectron commented on Legend of Zelda Maker Fan Project is Currently...:

This looks great! I wish Nintendo tried to do something like this. With the engine of A Link Between Worlds, it would be nice for top down Zelda games interfaces to be available. Not as hard as they said in some interviews, I think.



Olmectron commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

@OddworldCrash So you download at around 5.5 Megabyte per second? That's what 44Mbit/s could handle.

I'm impressed. My best connection is 5Mbit/s, which let me download at around 0.62 Megabyte per second. I just downloaded Fatal Frame (around 6.5 GB I think) and it lasted around 3 and a half hours. So yours should download it in a matter of minutes (less than half hour).

Still, I'm a download only user and I'm happy with that download speed.

I understand what you say with higher sizes for PS4 and XBox games, around 40-50 GB. My connection would download a 36 GB game after 18 hours, more or less. Thankfully I don't have neither of those consoles. And, anyway, when Nintendo games get that bigger size, maybe I'll get myself a 10Mbit/s speed montly plan.



Olmectron commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

@rjejr That would be more comparable to purchasing Playstation Plus subscription. Excepting you cannot put your name on a game so you download it first, having it locked for other users until your download is done.

About that Personal seat license you linked.



Olmectron commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

@ericthecheese I get your point. However, I called Nintendo, and was able to sign in with my NNID in my new 3DS (the old one broke apart) just one hour later (or even less). Maybe I was just lucky.

I understand it would be better to have it as easy as Sony's account system, or Google Play's, but their customer service is not THAT bad right now.



Olmectron commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

@AlexSora89 You're right on that. They could make it easier.

However, the games are already linked to the account. Just that they want to obssesively control everything, as you stated.

My 3DS XL had an accidente. And it ended like trash. All my retail download games were there. I called Nintendo and they kindly transfered my account to a new 3DS XL I got after the accident. They just asked for the serial numbers of both consoles, and voilà, I was able to download all of my games again in my new console.

There's already enough technical stuff for making the NNID the center of everything, but they still haven't decided to ley people do it by themselves.



Olmectron commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

There's an option for the first question left. "ALL of my retail games of the current gen are downloads".

All of my retail 3DS and Wii U games are downloads. I don't own any physical game (cartridge nor disk). I had only Nintendo Land but I lost it.



Olmectron commented on International Age Rating Coalition System, IAR...:

@SetupDisk Just like what @ThomasBW84 commeted. Mostly asking for "violent" or "suggestive" content in the app. Still, no need for sending footage, nor the APK of the app for them to try it.

It will be faster, yeah, but less inspected I think? Anyway, I think it'll be the same with Nintendo, they'll check it before letting it to be published on the store. This'll only speed up the rating part.



Olmectron commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@khaosklub Alright. But he got it because it's a fighting game. So he is not going to "experience" Pokémon, but a fighting game with Pokémon characters. So, no problem at all.

Maybe it's a bit different that thing about Smash Bros. But it's the same for what this is about. Self-proclaimed "passionate" players saying everyone playing a different or more recent version of a game is bad, and that the real way to experience the game is in the version (or versions) they most like. Where did I read that?

Everyone should just have fun. And everyone can have their opinion. But writing several full paragraphs about one person's little sentence, without even knowing him/her, is just bad. So much prejudice put in there.



Olmectron commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@khaosklub You said: "OP says this is going to be his first pokemon game. Kirk says that it's pathetic to be introduced to pokemon this way, then accuses the OP of getting this game just because it's a fighting game, which turned out to be true. then kirk criticizes him for wanting this game as a fighter even though it is a shoddy fighter, which is kirk's current opinion and assumption.
Then he accuses the OP of being a young modern gamer that just gets the game for appearance rather than content. that may have been a little bit offensive I suppose, but he's obviously just ranting about the state of gaming today and his view of those kind of gamers. nothing to be taken personally."

Between those lines and some other from other posts you did, you're fine with Kirk criticizing Shiryu's post because it's okay to say it's bad to enter Pokémon franchise by playing a spin-off game that Kirk says will surely be bad, and not a real entry in the series. After all, it's just an opinion, and you took it more directed to the actual videogaming environment, than anything personal to Shiryu.

Whatever, the point is the same thing could Meele players do to Brawl or WiiU/3DS new players (and they do). Many Meele players criticized Brawl, and criticize WiiU/3DS versions so bad, that they could easily just insult and say "pathetic" and "sad" way to enter into the series to any new player because of that. And it would be right, because it's just their opinion. Woudln't it?



Olmectron commented on Video: This Pokkén Tournament Commercial Shou...:

@khaosklub Okay. Then I'm off. No point in trying to discuss anything here, not worth the time.

I'll just add, Nintendo should have died in its early days like Sega, so that all those new fans (children, teenagers or adults, doesn't matter) didn't exist to make veteran gamers feel "bad" just for purchasing and playing new Nintendo games.



Olmectron commented on The Pokémon Company Sues Fan for Copyright In...:

In my country, people print and sell copyrighted IP's assets in cosplay/anime/videogames events. Never have heard of any sue. I wish Nintendo and The Pokémon Company had presence here, they could get $40,000 for suing 10 people per event (the normal quantity of stands selling posters/other unofficial stuff).



Olmectron commented on Weirdness: The Bizarre Truth of Bowser Jr.'s M...:

Cannot see the video. It loads 2 seconds per minute (seriously). They should upload it to youtube too. I think there's so many people watching it right now, because it can't be my bandwidth,

I went to see a 1080p 60 fps video on Youtube and it loaded instantly; just to be sure it wasn't me.



Olmectron commented on GAME Processes Additional Charges on Super Mar...:

Worse things have always happened here in Mexico with our local shop "GamePlanet". Here the employees in the stores buy all of the amiibo for reselling by themselves at US$40 or higher, leaving only the pre-ordered ones alone (they even cancel more than half the pre-orders giving some lame reasons). And they don't need to overcharge us to get more money, they sell each copy of Super Mario Maker for US$72 (the normal one, not a bundle).

Anyway, bad that the last big shop in UK is doing that bad.



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Download: 16th July (North America):

The complete opposite of the European Download update, which is by far better than this. I would love to download Poké Park and Final Fight One, but I don't have an European console.

I'll complain until I get Kirby's Return to Dreamland, which is the only Kirby game I never played.



Olmectron commented on Nintendo Cancels Camp Miiverse in Honour of Sa...:

When my favorite videogame console ages, I like to praise it on the pedestal I have at home dedicated to it. None must do anything else but praise it as well on that day, and I get mad when someone celebrate something else, or do something productive at work because everyone must be praising the pedestal or altar (whatever you may call it) just like me. Doing anything else is disrespectful.

About the article, it's a shame they cancelled it, but they have more than enough reasons to do so.
