Platypus101 commented on Nintendo NX Might Be The First Social VR Platf...:

@JamesCoote I think the next gen of consoles may be able to produce an effect that will be enjoyable by all. :) as for the PS4 /XB1 crowd, that is the majority of the gaming community, many of whom have spilled into the Ninty crowd, thus infecting them with the "More power! No Gimmicks!" mentality. I absolutely love my Wii and my Wii U (in fact the reason I bought them was due to the unique controller) and have yet to buy another console this generation. Hoping all this NX talk won't sink her too soon and force my hand into buying the PS4 (I don't love the exclusives, but it has the largest install base amongst my friends) ;)

@JamesCoote try closer to 10 years... As long as conventional games make money, there is really no reason for them to go out of their way to create tech not many people are going to like... People don't like the Gamepad or Wiimotes... How would this be any different in the eyes of the couch sitting controller holding gaming community? How often do we see the word "gimmick" pasted on this site, in reference to non-conventional controllers? Truth is, this style of play, like the Balance Board, will require you to get off your butt and game, is just not popular with "core gamers"... I guess since MS is leading the charge it's cool now. Glad Nintendo didn't lead the way, or would have just been another "gimmick".

@ikki5 really? Justifying hate? Um... It's not the end of world if a game does not meet our expectations. Post #11 sums it up. We should be contributing to productive banter, not just default to hate.... Just saying.

@chardir no, no, no. That simply will not do. ;) The Gamepad should be a digital photo frame or timepiece without the need to turn on the WiiU... Just the Gamepad. At least then it would serve some form of real world purpose... Hey! Look, @Rjejr just invented the first QoL product for Nintendo using their already existing infrastructure! :P

@brandonbwii well... It's hard to argue that. Let's face it, the NL community has finally succumbed to the negativity that plagues most other gamer sites :( some folk still come here to talk about games, not just to diss them... Unfortunately, many (especially since E3) have hopped on the bandwagon of hate, which is very sad, seeing as I taut this as one of the best forum sites. Still is, just sad to see all this negativity.

@rjejr son of a b...... I never thought of a digital photo frame! That is a no brainier! It could even display in-game images that you've taken.... Arrgh! Nintendo R&D, (since you were listening to us, at least according to NL, about Devils Third) please be reading this and take note! ;) perhaps a poll from all those loyalists that purchased a DDP WiiU about what kind of features they would like the next Gampad to utilize.

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Quality Of Life Patent Applications A...:

Was this what they call "click-bait"? Where is anything related to the NX? This is obviously for their QoL platform they have mentioned many a time on this site, and is most likely not really dedicated gaming hardware. I would have no issue if the article stated that it was a QoL product... But I guess everyone at NL figured out by now, not many folk are interested in QoL, so, they tagged it NX.

@XCWarrior now I feel just how I look...stupid. I was unaware of that fact face palm as they say, you learn something new everyday ;) with THAT in mind, let's hope that the majority of these levels are not "punishing" for lack of a better term... Please let them mention the 80+ levels in the commercials! NL: give 'em a call, remind them! :)

@JamesCoote Nearly every parent has purchased a really cheap tablet for their children to play Minecraft... It is also mobile, cheaper, and let's be honest, at this point, more powerful (if not more powerful, than at least optimized for a better play experience) than the Wii U. Cost and convenience, that's what's ruining Console gaming. If you can't take it with you, get free games and inexpensive, then it's not worth their time. :(

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Announces Super Mario Maker Wii U Har...:

@OorWullie you are absolutely correct on that front. Had this been the launch title for the U... This story would be quite different at this point. As it stands, this may end becoming another wiiMusic :( gamers like to play games, not create them. Proof? WiiMusic. I would be glad to see this sell, but I'm not holding my breath... And yes, I'm picking it up ;)

Platypus101 commented on Multiple Sources Point to Nintendo of America ...:

@ToxieDogg thank you. Seriously, not every game is going to be an "A++" title... I feel that modern video gamers as a whole are a soft-skinned lot. Not trying to hurt feelings or troll, hear me out... When you go out and play sports, you cannot reset or redo the game, so that you will have a better record. Same with life, you mess up, you live with it. NOT in gamer world though. I'm about to lose... Reset! I didn't do so well, let's do it all over again so I can get it perfect! This leads to a mentality that loss is bad and that anything less than perfect is simply not worth your effort. I'm willing to bet that the good majority of the "soft-skinned" folk never played sports, much less watch any... (This does not apply to only sports, Life as well. No resets/redos in real life)

@rjejr Now who can argue with that?I think we're all indebted to Rjejr...
for clearly stating what needed to be said. I'm particularly glad that these lovely children were here today to hear that speech. Not only was it authentic... it expressed a courage little seen in this day and age! ;)

@AmericanCrusade @Ralizah no, no, no.... If you are going to marry, then choose wisely. Don't just hook up with the first beautiful jackass you see! Maybe people should spend more than a year or so getting to REALLY know each other... Or, ugh, Too many things to mention that people can do to avoid situations such as these. :( and no, I am actually quite happy in my relationship :)

@Moon COO is only one cog of the machine... They do not make any decisions (company-wide) without the boards approval. Trust me, you do not want COO' s to do whatever they want. They are not good people, much less nice. Should you find a kind and loving boardroom officer, I'll find you six more that will scare you! ;)

@garthvader and that statement right there... Is why you don't run a multimillion dollar corporation. Glad you ain't running Nintendo, they would have shutdown two weeks after launch! ;) doing anything to spite someone, is absolutely verboten in business. Trust me, in business, you have strange bedfellows...

I have to agree with @Spoony_Tech ... WTH is up with leggings and prints these days? Does anyone remember the days of Zubaz prints? Hopefully, this fad will die out, just as quickly 😓 although, it's nice to see some Nintendo merchandise out in the world (that is not specifically Mario related) ;)

But Wait! So many people here said it was fake! Obviously this man (whomever he may be) is lying! From what I get on this site is that we as consumers know everything, and these so-called video game "executives" are complete idiots and liars. There I just summed up every damned troll statement possible. 'Nuff said (translated into plain English: you were wrong! Obviously this item is real, and nothing you say will EVER change that. No matter how many internet memes you type out and post... Boo hoo! Now go home and cry to your Playstation/XBOX...

Platypus101 commented on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Launches on the ...:

Oh man... The way this site responded when it was stated that Nintendo wouldn't release this title, was disturbing to say the least. Now, that the title is finally getting released, everyone is claiming they will double dip for THIS game, but not any of Nintendo's titles... My assumption? This is the title Nintendo needs to move consoles! Get ready BOI fans, this is the Wii U's GOTY, woot! (Sarcasm off) people come here, whine about the graphics on Federation force, but clamour for this garbage.. I guess Since SOMEONE said it was a cool game, everyone thinks it is. Why no games where our children have turned on us, and we have to slaughter them wholesale? Not much different really.
