Omenapoika commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

I'd be happy to see 32gb of games that I like on Wii U :D jk
the only disc title I've downloaded so far has been the NSMBU. My DL/disc decision is largely based on if the game is the sort I'd play every day and know I won't sell forward I consider downloading.
Like the AC3... it was pretty much like a movie in the sense that once I ploughed it through (sorry for the term, it wasn't my favorite :9) I didn't feel like playing it again, and I traded it off for a new game!
If let's say a Zelda title came, I might download it because I'd be quite sure I wouldn't want to part with it.

Omenapoika commented on Your View: Predicting "Brand-New Types of Game...:

My input:
The Wii U is still finding it's place in the large market and Nintendo (appears to be?) active in proving the point of the controls and playing possibilities offered by the controller.
According to Miyamoto, new IP is about making a new experience, so we might see a whole new kind of game that makes the best of Wii U's hardware. Hopefully in the way that Skyward Sword made the motion plus a justified necessity in a gamer household, this new IP/type of game would do the same for the Wii U system.

Omenapoika commented on Aonuma Is Growing "Tired" Of The Zelda Formula...:

I remember this talk amongst the fans already with the wind waker... How the zelda had always been the same and people said "the new graphics don't make a game new in ideas..."
Great games, and there's been a lot of development, but this has been an issue for like 10 years!

Omenapoika commented on Talking Point: Gun Violence and Nintendo is an...:

I come from a very peaceful country, and I believe the reason is that people don't need to point guns at each other. Social welfare, free education and public healthcare keep people busy studying, working and familying.
No offense americans, but I can't help but say that if people didn't need to resort to guns, they wouldn't.

Also, I find the hubbub about video games increasing violence completely silly. Of course it can warp the thoughts of little kids, but they are to be guided by the parents, not the government.

edit: we have one of the world's highest guns per capita due to necessary hunting and hobbyists. But I wouldn't want to live in a country where I would need a gun for safety.

Omenapoika commented on Rumour: Wii Mini Console Outed By Retailer Re...:

I talked this over with a friend and if they can make it less than 50$, it would simply make it silly not to have a Wii. Although, that currency could as get you closer to a Wii U, so unless you're really desperate to play some gamecube games...

It's the japanese way of running a business... You need to know the people involved, because they work more like a feudal clan than an enterprise. Just saying :)
I hope Miyamoto doesn't ruin his health cooped up in an office!

Omenapoika commented on Castlevania: Mirror of Fate "Definitely Not Me...:

I also love the Metroidvanias. Apart from Zelda and Pokemon, those are the games that I have full heartedly completed to the last corner and secret and returned to every once in a while.
Although, the Lords of Shadow was so different from "real" Castlevanias that I didn't expect them to follow any existing trend of the 'vanias.

I couldn't have handled a metroidvania without cheesy eighties rock tunes.

well now, I really hope it works as they say it should!
I'm worried for the japanese ideas of social functions that might not work in many places.... But we'll fin out sooner or later! :D
For better or for worse!

Omenapoika commented on "Too Many Hurdles" to Ni No Kuni DS Translation:

I've got this baby since I lived in Japan.
Fiddling about with the book is a lot of fun, and it would be cool for many games to have a separate book like that. I remember how cool the manuals were as a kid, but nowadays they aren't that elaborate... I'd rather have the internet though, in 80's and 90's the manual might've been the only material you'd ever hope see about the game.
The game itself is well made and riddled with beautiful animations and cutscenes, but in the core it's "just" a JRPG. So I don't think the western world collapses for missing this beauty, it's just a shame because I feel that the book combo gameplay could have more to offer and develop. (Although the trend of going towards digital releases is already making this kind of games a thing of history that never came to fruition).

"The graphical capacity of Wii U is 1,7 gamecubes + an android phone, according to the latest tests. Former understanding of 0,3 Xbox360s + three quarters of macbook pro is still causing some misunderstandings."

Omenapoika commented on New SNES Title On the Way in 2013:

I hope this is a success and other studios will start making their games too :)
Production value for making 16-bit games now are very little, so the main expense would be in the design and manpower, which for this kinds of projects can find the peak of it's expertise.

Omenapoika commented on Get a Load of Two Dillon's Rolling Western Tra...:

Grhm, I've got so mixed feelings about this. Looks too wacky in a bad way, also it just seems to be following the trends of most liked dlc-game genres and slamming an unimaginative zoroark as the main character (not to mention the super terrifying enemy stones).
But it seems to have a lot borrowed from Zelda (another unimaginative trait that's off putting, but might be a promise of something worthwhile) and the game seems to be made with nice care.
Price isn't bad, so if the promises are kept, the game should be one of the eShop's best. But it really looks cheap, wacky and cardboardy.

I hope this is good... I've already got a so-so fighter in the SF4, but the movie could make a deal :)

Totally. I'd change those stupid "jewel games" and "that 80's feel" garbage to the Wii shop's categorizing system any day.
It's so obvious that they're trying to attach appealing ideas to shovel games that lack them.

Omenapoika commented on Feature: The Joy of Gaming Together:

since 2008 we've had a tradition of gaming sessions, taking place a few times a year. 5-10 people playing 3-5 days! These are hilarious events... 3 Wiis, 4 TVs, PS3 and a room full of old consoles and DSs.
I beat the Pokemon Colosseum XD in one 50 hour sitting :)
we've had notorious Mario Party tournaments. Not to mention the obvious worldly conditions caused by such a marathon. We should get web cams and start a charity fund raiser event of it...

Omenapoika commented on Nintendo May Not Call Wii U a Home Console:

The label of "home console" indicates that you need a room for playing: to house the console itself, to have a media for video and audio output, provide the electricity and make it comfortable to play it.

Apparently the issue about Wii U not being a home console is the portable screen with it's own power source. I suppose this could be called hybrid or dual media console or something on the same lines...

My little bro got this for christmas present. He finished it before new year. I love the art style too, I remember doing a little comic of this back in the day. Sadly, our dog ate the cartridge, so I really welcome this download!

The darn dog also ate Sword of Mana and chewed a gamecube controller chord :/

Omenapoika commented on Feature: Remembering the GameCube:

Hehehe, I was a teenager when I got the Gamecube. Before the release I rode my bike 20km to another town to try the Luigi's Mansion for a minute or two :D It was totally worth it, and the way back was fast since I was completely taken by what I had seen. But boy were those times hard for Nintendo-gamers... Kids' games, poor graphics and all that, I even got smirks from adult people who said that xbox is the only way to go! :D
It's all candy and cotton after Wii and DS I tell ya.

Omenapoika commented on Feature: Ten Years of Golden Sun:

I have The Lost Ark. Played until I got to the fabled "Other continent" through very tedious shipping episodes that made my hands hurt because of stupid controls. When I very finally made it to a spot where the screen didn't scroll further, I thought I'd made it through. Instead, I don't know if it was a boss or a random foe, a Poseidon appeared. It used "wrath of the seas" and wiped out my party with one blow. I said OK and ripped the cartridge out from my GBA without turning the power off and never played the game since.

Omenapoika commented on Review: Donkey Kong Jr. (NES):

I didn't play these games in warm and fuzzy arcade times, so unfortunately I don't have the mothers eyes while judging this baby.
I felt kind of insulted to play this game and it gave me a good laugh. I respect the people who like it though :D

Omenapoika commented on Nintendo's Latest 3DS Global Release Schedule:

Humm. I don't want to sound like a storm crow, but 1 after it's release europe will have... two mario games and a handful of remakes for 3DS's 1st party games? I guess it could be worse, but even Gamecube had SSBM...

Looks like it's going to be just like Wii: play an old Zelda game and move to playing virtual console games for a year or two until the games you're waiting for are out.

That's too much :D Today I was at a game store and saw a very old cartridge for possibly Sega saturn titled "Burger time" and thought what the heck kind of a game that must be. Now I come here and see that the deluxe version is out.

Omenapoika commented on Round Table: Let's Talk About Castlevania:

Castlevania hasn't yet done the metroid into 3D. Following Primes would create another type of metroidvania :D

Judgement is a godawful game, but it gives a good laughter. It's totally ridiculous! Despite being barely playable, I played the whole thing through twice with out friends + vs. matches, which actually make it to about a 100hrs of playtime, and would sound like a loved game.

I hope 3DS gets something as awesome as Dawn of Sorrow was for the DS... My favorites are the unlinear DSvanias.
