Platypus101 commented on NPD Results Bring Solid 3DS Numbers as Wii U S...:

@Samurai_Goroh I don't need to keep up with every single model of a product I bought and intend to keep for at least five years. Tell me sir, what were the last three models of vacuum cleaners released AFTER the one you purchased? See how silly that sounds? You may be taking this hobby a little too seriously...

Platypus101 commented on NPD Results Bring Solid 3DS Numbers as Wii U S...:

I swear, this is the title every time for this type of article: "3DS knockin' the socks off everyone! Wii U doing poorly..." Not sure I wanna read anymore of these type of articles. Also, seems that a lot of Sony and MS players joined up specifically to bad mouth Nintendo's sales. Not really news at this point.

@Farmboy74 casuals... What is it that you personally know about them? How many do you speak with? Me? Quite a few! Casuals are done with console gaming. In the words of over 100 random people on the street, they have simply moved on or do t have the time (in many cases they responded with "there's something comforting about holding a cell phone" I'm paraphrasing, but that's how it comes off... :( let's forget about those that have discarded our hobby and concentrate on the coming generation of new gamers :)

Platypus101 commented on You Can Now Pre-Order eShop Games Via Nintendo...:

@PorllM I see where you're coming from... Seems more like a "impulse buy" kinda situation. You also, stated that you pre-ordered GTA V... That was a very popular title, not many folk that I know of that didn't buy that game ;) my assumption is that your network speed is not up to snuff, as I can usually buy large games and have them downloaded within the hour... But regardless, if the intro price does drop, then I can see myself enjoying this service. :) on the other hand, NFS hardly dropped in price on the eShop, resorted to buying two copies for 10$ less (yes, both copies cost less than a single download) on amazon... :(

Platypus101 commented on This Metroid Game Boy Advance Design is a Treat:

@bahooney now now everybody... I didn't denigrate mister aaronsullivan... I was just commenting on how quickly he has forgotten the magic of the original GBA... In its day. I'm sure he is correct, but there was no other point of reference "back in the day" (excuse the parlance). My current HD TV is way better than my old Sanyo black and white tv console in '84! That's not really saying much... Technology moves forward, not much we can (or should, for that matter) do about it, but let's not forget the days of old, when the technology of the day was moving in leaps and bounds to give us what we have today! (Like for some weird reason, GBA Games - in their original definition - in HD being a big deal).
Oh, and @sketchturner awesome idea... Kinda like Zelda got its own design!

@aaronsullivan really? You're going to bad mouth technology that is nearly 15 years old? I'm sure when you bought your first GBA, your first words were not "what a POS! This screen sucks! Why did I ever spend my money on this?" You sound like those 9 year olds at the mall: " ugh... MOM! Why don't we have the NEW samsung (whatever the hell)?! This is last years model..." The GBA was the only REAL choice for portable gaming, there was no other tech quite as appealing... Think iPhones when first released.

This article is a joke, right? I mean, these are the same people that didn't care to work with the gamepad, and that was established technology! This would mean starting from scratch and taking a big financial risk. Two things EA is not known for, (Not verbatim, but it is what they have been stating since their exclusion of their Wii U support, To be kind)...they will probably last as long as their support for Wii U. :(

Platypus101 commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

Really?! Now we're going to post angry disgruntled twitters by angry employees? This is not news or informative, lots of people hate their boss/company they work (or worked) for. This dude should just get over it! I am sure if we all got together we could come up with something to complain about at work. In his case, he has soooooo much money from his awful, awful job, that never did a thing for him ('cept feed his family and give him a nice sized savings to boot!) that he could quit and start his own company.... You know what I say in that situation? Thank you EA for taking care of me! 'Nuff Said.

@grimbldoo seriously broke at the time (unemployed for nearly 5 years) so I panicked and tried to make some money off the IDEA they were collectible... Like you said, collectibles are for collecting. The only value they truly have, is the one the collector gives it :) (FYI: many of my collectibles are stuff I had collected through my school years - 80's thru 90's, they're nice, just not worth much in the open market)

@BlackStar9000 really? Collectors? Once we're old, these things will have very little value (as they were so poular that quite a few copies do exist) this is not some rare gem... It is a game that was passed over by many, not all. I have tons of "collectible" crap... I tried selling some of it once, dissappointing to say the least. Thanks ebay for killing collectibles :(

@hamae ahem.... As a citizen of one of the many countries that supply weapons to those countries, I can honestly state that not a single important person (that could make a change) would do a thing about it. Weapons are big business, look at all the military games that are successful. :(

@ThumperUK really, apple hate when they're turning around? Why don't you research (not just google the first three thinks you see) e-waste? You will see that as first world societies, we create disasters in third world countries. This has been happening far longer than apple has been a major player in the electronics biz...in those videos you will see young boys, pregnant mothers and the elderly, awash in lethal chemicals trying to strip the precious metals off circuit boards and the like. Save your hate... There are bigger fish out there (and many a time we are enabling them). 'Nuff said.

@TDS_Computer sorry, hot cakes don't do too well these days... Just ask IHOP (International house of Pancakes! They just got all 50 states, how they're international is beyond me) they have closed down quite a few in the past two decades or so... But really? Minecraft? That game is free or cheap, isn't it? Why buy a console when you can borrow your parents iPhone?

@FishieFish why does everyone want a retail release? Haven't we all seen the future with app stores and the like across all platforms? The days of retail copies is coming to an end. Mark my words, as production of physical discs becomes a burden on companies, they will go up in cost, while digital copies go down ( or realistically stay the same)...
