Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw "Youtube videos aren't always, or even frequently, from the, erhem, official versions of the game." "Videos" is the subject, "are" is the verb, "not" (n't) modifies the verb "are" and is an adverb. "Always" is also an adverb that modifies the adverb "not" (n't.) "Or" is a coordinating conjunction that joins the phrase "even frequently" to the rest of the sentence. "Frequently" is an adverb which modifies the the adverb "even." "From" begins the prepositional phrase. Ah, I see it, you're correct. You cut out two of the adverbs making the remaining two adverbs modify each other, which makes sense.

@Nintendoftw Like I said in a previous post, you can't change my thoughts on this topic. I figured that mentioning the killing of Police would end up stirring up some degree of conversation about morals, but I figured, eh, why not? It's not like the context I'm mentioning Police killing in has no relevance to the topic, but now that your basically going into religion territory ("no absolute right or wrong") you're completely off topic for this board.

@Nintendoftw I take it you've never played RE2 or MGS1, games that have disappearing bodies. RE2 can't have clipping because of the design of the game, and I don't recall MGS1 having any clipping either. Both games have great soundtracks that stay in sync with the gameplay, sound does as well.

If you would type your comments with more clarity then we wouldn't be having these misreadings.

I've been a fan of Nintendo since the NES. If all you can say in response to my comment is that my taste in games is bad, it's quite obvious you're getting desperate.

@Nintendoftw I like the PS3 and the Wii. Does the fact I like the PS3 make me a serious gamer but the fact I like the Wii make me not a serious gamer?

By saying that the Wii's appeal is towards "Just little kids, casual gamers, and Nintendo fans (to some extent)" that would mean you are not a Nintendo fan based off of your dislike of the Wii.

@Nintendoftw I'd love to know what "game shattering glitch" in Skyword Sword you're talking about. Because if it's the one where you go a different direction than what they planned you to take, it's been fixed.

Ah, so now you specify and say that "every game that is in 3D and has more than two dimensions HAS GLITCHES." Meaning a game that is not a side scroller or one that plays similarly to the boulder levels in Crash Bandicoot 1. Ever see a glitch in the console versions of RE2? Nope, me either. How about MGS1 on the PS1?

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw Not every game has glitches, we've gone over this already...

Which patch was it in Skyrim that fixed the save data glitch? I can't seem to find it.

So Twilight Princess destroyed your save file? You do know Nintendo offered a fix for that.

The point of my mentioning the review system is purely because you said that "the Wii has more games than the HD consoles, it has LESS good games... Look at the reviews for reference." Reviews have no impact on whether or not a game is "good." You're attacking yourself on this.

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw Kinda funny. You say that "PC has the same old RTS games every generation..." Really the PC has no generations. Any incremental improvements can only be benchmarked when compared to console generations. The only real generational differences in PC gaming is with engines. Doom 1 compared to Quake 1, very large incremental improvement.

Like I said before, I don't base my purchasing of a game on whether or not it gets a "good" score. Gamespot was the place I would go to to find out what games are "good" based on score. But since they gave Skyward Sword a 7.5 and Skyrim a 9.0 I no longer use them (or any reviews on new games right now.) This is mainly because it's ridiculous to say that Skyrim, the game that corrupts your save data just from playing it, is better than Skyward Sword. Currently I would much rather know if a game has glitches in it than what score a reviewer gave it (since reviewers are also people and peoples opinions differ greatly on things.) But in the end it comes down to preference. If you prefer a game like Skyrim and are willing to take a chance loosing everything (like my friend did) instead of playing a game that was actually tested, then be my guest.

"Good" games are relative to the player, not based on fact.

@Nintendoftw Well you've yet to prove the Wii worse in any way other than power. And you've yet to provide a number from a legitimate source.

How can PC games be called generic if many of the games are also on the HD consoles? Doesn't that mean that many of the HD console games are generic?

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw I can see how games like Date's Inferno, Batman AC and even Dead Space 2 have tacked on multiplayer. However, Resistance 3, Portal 2, Soul Calibur IV and Red Dead Redemption all have multiplayer that is critically acclaimed.

Something also worth noting, why did you buy games that, in your opinion, have tacked on multiplayer if online is such an important part of the HD consoles?

By the way, almost half of the games you mentioned are not HD exclusives, they're also on the PC. Resistance 3 is the only real exclusive because it's only on the PS3. It's funny how 3/7 of the "great" single player games you mentioned are not HD console exclusives...

@Nintendoftw I did enjoy Bad Company 2, but it eventually got boring. Like I said in a post before, the reason I traded in BF3 is because I played it on version 1.03 and experienced numerous glitches that really tainted the experience. Even still, how am I to know that the glitches I encountered have been fixed since I've yet to see locate them in any patch notes?

Quake

#24

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw Whether or not my preference is "nasty" as you claim is still an opinion. There is no facts that say it is.

I'd love to see your list of "problems" with No More Heroes, because I know it will be dwarfed by the shadow of all of the problems in the 4 BF3 patches. Also, in BF3 the developers have admitted that there were problems in the game, hence the patch, however, it is very unlikely you'll ever find any "problems" in No More Heroes that the developers have admitted to being problematic, and even if they did find something they wanted to change they couldn't, because the Wii can't update.

How can you say that "Consoles, as of this gen, focus more on single player than multiplayer..." when you've yet to mention many games that have good single player (you would only be able to say this because you own it) relative to the games that have multiplayer?

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw There's still no justification for killing Police. They could have told the Police to not interfere. And your are right about one thing, I wasn't really paying attention the the story. Like you already said, the campaign wasn't very good and they didn't really work that much on it (paraphrase.) So why would I really care about a generic story that was lazily made?

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw BF3's latest patch didn't add any new content to my knowledge, unless it was for the, at the time, two-three month away Close Quarters DLC. I'm beginning to think you don't own BF3 if you've only encountered several glitches. I experienced a major glitch in the first hour of the single player and a major glitch in the first multiplayer match I played, both different glitches.

The story of the game, in the context of the killing of Police and as far as I can tell, was that you are a Russian terrorist trying to get to some kind of nuke in New York. But to get to it you are required to eliminate Police. In end the nuke was not where you thought it was and the city gets blown up. Nothing yet justifies the killing of any Police. And if you recall correctly I said that the killing of Police is ONE of the reasons I traded it in, there are others, mainly glitches. Oh, and by the way, the game is still not glitch free, MAV glitch anyone?

You do realize that whether or not a game is "better" than older games is relative to the player and not based on fact. Many people still play online games that are older than 8 years. Quake 3, UT99, Socom 1 and others all still have a community going. Not because the owners cannot afford newer technology, but because they believe those games to be better than what is currently on the market.

"If you're looking for long standing online games, buy a gaming PC..." There you go again, saying something cheap and/or irrelevant to try and avoid the truth.

I would very highly doubt you even own Rage if you didn't know the developer was id and the engine was id Tech 5. You said at the beginning of the conversation that you can't have a say on whether a game is good or not unless you own it. Another contradiction?

BF3 1.04 patch notes. How is this getting more bang for you buck? Look at all those problems they fixed. Probably the longest patch notes I've ever seen.

@Nintendoftw Xbox Live started in late 2002 and ended on February 10, 2010. A total of less than 8 years, around 7 years really. I still get the same value out of my copy of Snake Eater, even in another 10 years I will, but I will never get the same value out of Halo 2 because it was so online heavy.

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw Modern online play generally has far too many problems for it to be very enjoyable. Unless everyone has a similar connection speed there will be instances where lag occurs. Even if there are good internet connections all around anybody can ping the ip of any player lag them and even kick them if they want to, just need a program (or knowledge of programming and internet protocol) and a correct home network setup.

And even still, the online of many last generation games is completely gone, some current generation games are also gone (I don't remember the dates of the sever death days, but I believe it was this month.) I would much rather purchase a game that actually has enough of a focus on single player to where it wouldn't become worthless because of glitches if my HDD crashes and I have no way of obtaining the update because the servers are gone. In that situation the entire game becomes worthless and you spent $60 on a game that becomes a paperweight in 5-8 years. Not to mention the inability to retrieve any DLC you possibly spent a good chunk of money on. You can go and continue the beta testing of BF3, which was more than likely $60 when you got/bought it, which means you spent $60 on a beta, while I go play a game that was built to release instead of test.

I still don't see where I've undermined the importance of online play, all I've done is stated facts.

@Nintendoftw Wow, are you really serious? Really? If what you meant lines up with what I think you meant that is the most ignorant comment I've heard in a while... Based off of how TrueWiiMaster only mentioned id Tech 5 in regards to engines my comment makes sense in context. Rage is MADE on id Tech 5! Rage is made by id Software... Who makes id Tech... And they made id Tech 5... And you believe yourself to be some kind of authority on HD games? Specifically shooters? id invented the FPS.

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw You do realize that Skyrims doesn't really count because it has side quests that are randomly generated, which theoretically means the game never really ends.

My Wii account is my Wii friend code, which is not system transferable unless you work at Nintendo, so it's impossible to hack.

Rage has the best physics engine currently on the market, but that alone is not why I bought the game or why I bought my PS3, my statement still stands.

Wrong on the multiplat part. The 360 does have exclusives that use more than 1 disc. Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey have 3 discs, both 360 exclusives, probably others have this as well.

It's not that ridiculous to say that online isn't an advantage. It's nothing new, the Dreamcast was the first system to start online play, and it's over 10 years old. Not to mention that all online games will expire at some point, once they shut the servers down say good bye to your high level BF3 account. (EA actually is shutting down some PS3 servers already.) But if you wanna see something that shows the true colors of online go sign in with your PS3 and load up MW1, you won't be able to play it unless you do some specific things to bypass the (most likely) uploaded hack. Have fun! Where did I mention online not being an advantage?

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw Then what is the benefit of an HD system over the Wii? Graphics, nope. Sound is best on PS3. Additional content on disc, nope, because the Wii has the same sized disc as the 360, and PS3 games are on the 360. Physics, increased on HD systems, but not to the point of going out and buying a console. AI, comes down to the developers. Story doesn't have any relativity to the power of a console. Engines have the ability to progress while a console is going, if they didn't then why does Chaos Theory look so much better than Splinter Cell 1. Last generation engines weren't even pushed that hard, for example, Halo 2 has really bad popping textures that were also recycled throughout the levels, this could havve been remedied had they created another game or created something similar to Megatexture. Online, not really, I say this because I've yet to have my account hacked on the Wii, but have had it hacked several times on the 360, which is an HD system. Also, the online of current HD generation games should have started out better than it did because they already had benchmarks on consoles from last generation, but it didn't. I mean really, host switch mid game when the original host quits was FINALLY introduced around 2009. Did I leave anything out?

Xenoblade has more content than probably anything on the HD consoles. Not counting the multiplayer modes of anything, because how much it is used is relative to the player, I would still be playing Chaos Theory on the Xbox had they not enforced its expiration date, like they will with ALL online games at some point unless you can run your own server like in Quake on the PC.

@Nintendoftw You neglected one portion of the sentence. I said E rated 3-D platformers. The only Ratchet and Clank on the PS3 that is rated E, not E10, is All 4 One. LBP is automatically dis-qualified because it's a side-scroller and is at most 2.5D, similar to some levels in Crash Bandicoot for PS1. Batman AC is T...

I never said that the Wii would be limited to GTA4, there are such things as spin offs, i.e. Liberty City Stories. Also, they could do a better looking GTA3 with online components.

Based off of the video you showed me, whatever system GTA4 was running on also had hiccups in the engine, which means that the system was having issues running GTA4.

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw You yet to show me any legitimate source that specifies the Wii's processing power. Obviously the Wii couldn't run GTA4 with the graphics of the PS3 or 360, but it still comes down to developers not making games comparable to that in terms of gameplay for the Wii. Based off of the clientele of the Wii it probably wouldn't do very well, but neither have any E rated 3-D platformers for the HD generation.

@Nintendoftw Need to check your history on that one. The N64 didn't get great games that it would have had it used CDs. FF7 (probably 8 and 9 as well) and Dragon Quest 7 would have been on the N64 had the N64 used CDs. Not to mention that some of the games that were ported to the N64 from the PS1 had to loose content because of the size limits, i.e. RE2 (fun fact, RE2 on the N64 was partially ported by Angel Studios, who is now Rockstar San Diego).

@Nintendoftw I'd love to know what games you're speaking of, because Toy Story 3, Wall-E, Tin Tin, Phineas and Ferb, Bolt, Spiderman 3,Transformers, The Bourne Conspiracy, PotC, Rango, Rio, Cars Happy Feet 2 and Kung Fu Panda 1and 2 all have movie games on the PS3. I'm sure I missed some others on the PS3.

@Nintendoftw Hmm, those game are not targeted towards kids as a whole, they are targeted towards young girls. That is, unless you would have wanted to play Barbie Hannah Montana, Petz and Cooking Mama when you were a kid, because I know I would not have. But if you did want to play them then I could see how you would think those games are targeted towards kids as a whole.

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw That was based off of the "kiddie" games you've mentioned, My (series) and My Little Pony. First off, I know that the My (series) was released a couple years ago which means it's no longer in production and Gamestop doesn't have it under the new category anymore. Which means someone in your community bought it and traded it in, simple as that.

Secondly, it turns out that you never saw any My Little Pony game for the Wii because it doesn't exist! Funny enough it does exist on the DS, the system that you think is better for gamers. Just checked, go try it yourself.

@Nintendoftw Jet Set Radio is not on a Nintendo console, it's on the GBA. So in other words that was a poor example. Jet Grind Radio will be on the PS3/360 download this summer and that game was exclusively on the Dreamcast.

Again, percentages not backed by math.

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw Socom 4 was worse than the average Wii game. If you think Socom 4 is better than the average Wii game (wherever the benchmark may be for the average Wii game) that just means that you haven't played very Wii games. Many are far superior.

It's quite funny really, how you point the direction of the conversation in a completely irrelevant direction. You do know that the Wiiviewer purposely reviews games that are generally lesser known? That's not all of the Wii games he could find, he tries to find games that others can't find. Whether or not your local Gamestop has the games he reviews would be a reflection of the people that live in your community.

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw Yes, a puzzle game. You didn't look at Megaman Network Transmission at all quite obviously.

Have you ever even owned a PSP, cause I have. As far as I know the only game with 32 person online multiplayer is Medal of Honor Heroes 2. Which would mean that 32 person online is not the norm.

You're kidding. Socom 4, the game that was the last dying breath of Zipper Interactive, being better than Monster Hunter? Socom 4 was a major disappointment to most anyone who played it. Shall we bring up the DLC that a lot of people paid for but never ended up getting (Socom Pro)? Or the lack of Demolition mode at launch? Maybe the campaign mode that went with a more cinematic approach that fans of Socom 1,2, and 3 hated? Socom 4 got low scores across Metacritics critic section and can't be compared to Monster Hunter Tri. Not to mention the abandoned by the devs online that has a lot of glitches still permeating its very existence. (But according to you patches are a good thing, I guess we'll just wait for the now shut-down Zipper Interactive to patch the glitches.)

We've already covered how your perception of the consumers expectations is incorrect. (Refer back to the ragdoll physics section.)

Quake commented on Developers: Wii U "Less Powerful than PS3 and ...:

@Nintendoftw As far as I can tell, Megaman Network Transmission for the Gamecube has no glitches. What you been saying, how "EVERY SINGLE GAME in the history of all of the gaming industry has glitches" is theory and conjecture, completely lacking any proof.

Sweet, comparing owned games. Hmm... I own 21 PS3 games on disc, around 3 games on the PS3 HDD that are purchasable on disc but I got off the download for one reason or another. 29 Wii games on disc. And around 5 360 games because I shaved my collection once M$ broke my system. None of this is counting any games that are downloaded to either system and not purchasable on disc or games that I've traded in. This must mean I have the greatest advantage out of the three of us because I have the most HD generation games.

@Nintendoftw Uncharted has the benefit of having Mo-cap and facial animation capture at the same time, which prevents those strange occurrences in L.A. Noire where the face of a character doesn't match up with the body as well as it could have because they splice together the face of the actor with the movement of the actor. The face animations in L.A. Noire are quite superb, but because of the splice the body animations end up suffering. With Uncharted you end up getting the whole package, quality facial animation and quality body animation that line up in a realistic manner.

You still can't say that every game has glitches unless you've played every game.
