R_Champ commented on Video: Digital Foundry Tackles the Native Reso...:

Surprised how much butthurt piracy apologists I'm seeing here. I highly doubt 99% of people supporting dolphin dumped their own bios into the emulator, which is the ONLY way it's legal (along with a legal copy of the game...which usually does not include fan based mods--though it can with dev support...which is not Nintendo) I'm tired of people who are like: fan project was better I'm cool because I can steal when I don't like a product I'm smarter than people who actually support IPs they like My tongue went numb trolling people online so it's just hanging out now .

If you don't like it, it's fair to leave legitimate criticism or don't buy a product, but entitled piracy elitism is pathetic and one of biggest blights on any gaming community.



R_Champ commented on Talking Point: My Nintendo Can Be a Tipping Po...:


That's a good idea...I usually have the same problem of forgetting to redeem points...which reminds me, I think I have some rewards on my credit card I haven't redeemed...hehe.

It might even be cool to get notifications that show you how close you on our points to stuff on your wish list.

This new network seems promising as long as it stays free like PC gaming. I can't stand extra subscription fees like PSN and Xbox Live...



R_Champ commented on Fire Emblem Fates Removes 'Petting' Feature in...:

...Petting? What the heck (censored for Nintendo Life ) What is this some pervy JRPG by Nippon Ichi? Some fan service sell out like Persona 4 Golden? sigh Everyone whines about censorship. I'm whining about one of the best JRPG devs going down the tubes fast. I'm all for Fire Emblem trying new things, but gay shaming/drugging, petting, level grinding, and waifu-waifu onii-chan <3 <3 is NOT what I had in mind for the solid and distinct Fire Emblem series.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Removes Infamous Drugging Scene From ...:


Either they don't know what's going on, or they're insensitive bigots.

Gay community: "We deserve to be respected like any other human. Please censor the scene because it's insensitive, unethical, and scientifically incorrect"

Anti-censorship crowd: "We deserve this one non-important scene. Think of the hundreds of years of shame and being treated like second-class citizens we've had to endure. We deserve this one scene ", yeah no

Seriously, suck it up anti-censorship zealots. You lose nothing from losing this scene. I'm usually in support of not censoring games, but this is justified, and doesn't hurt the game even slightly.



R_Champ commented on Rumour: Twilight Princess HD to Feature Specia...:

Man, a lot of angry essays on here O_O.

I'm not a huge fan of remakes/remasters, but I'll admit hero mode + gamepad inventory are pretty cool...

I'll also admit I hate on-disc DLC, but I like Amiibos as fugures...

I'm obviously torn over whether to love or hate this game



R_Champ commented on 17 Games Get North American eShop Discounts in...:


It's a great series if you like pseudo on-rails shooters like Star Fox or Kid Icarus: Uprising. The Wii sequel "Star Successor" is one of the best on-rails shooters I've ever played.


I'm a Nintendo fanboy and I agree Nintendo's sales are usually pretty bad compared to stuff like Steam. I don't count PSN or Xbox Live much higher on my list though because they hold you hostage first with subscription fees.



R_Champ commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Voice Actress Is In Fav...:

I thought it was a fair choice. I know it's ficiton/animation so the originals didn't bother me, but I can understand the idea that hyper conservative parents seeing a 13-year old in a bikini and immediately make a media frenzy out of it that's put Nintendo (with their label plastered all over the game) in hot water. They were trying to avoid a fire storm and made a choice based on the numbers. There are way more people who'd be extremely upset by having it in, rather than those who were upset that it got censored. And seeing that the gameplay and story don't change at all because of it...I'm OK with that. Bust size censorship was dumb though. I know you'll get a bunch of immature wankers, but what about female gamers trying to get an avatar that looks like them?

Some of Lin's censorships were just hilarious though. Like they were trying SOOOOOO hard to cover any skin below the neck. I was surprised when one set of armor showed her belly button



R_Champ commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's 2015?:

Xenoblade came out in 2015...that's good enough for me.

Though Nintendo still needs to up the quantity of quality games as well. I probably bought 3 times as many games on PC this year. Not necessarily because I liked them more than games like Xenoblade or Splatoon, but just because there are so many games at good prices. Nintendo could definitely sell the games if they'd just make the games



R_Champ commented on Feature: The Poor Career Choice of Super Smash...:

$40,000? To play video games?
Yeah, you have a tough life. It's frustrating hearing people whine about not getting paid enough to play games. I support esports, but like with regular sports I think it's dumb to overpay people.

I love Smash, but wouldn't waste my time watching a tier-whoring-a-thon people would call a tournament. "But people choose lots of characterzzz!!!1" More than half of the Top 16 for Evo 2015 Melee fighters were Fox...lots of characters...yep.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Wins Bizarre Patent Case in Defence o...:

"Judge Jones held that the patent was an improper attempt to monopolize mathematical operations, which cannot be patented."

Good. Friggin' patent trolls patenting the vaguest things in hope they can sue someone who becomes successful with it.



R_Champ commented on Video: Catch Up With All The Super Smash Bros....:

Wow O_O a character WORTH buying (Bayonetta). She's awesome and looks fun to play as! The others? Well...

-Mii outfits: I hate this crap when Capcom does it so no free pass for Smash

  • Roy + Lucas: Make sense, but should've been free

-Ryu: In WAY too many fighting games already, boring, and his game is PS4 exclusive...makes no sense.

-Corrin: Siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh I love FE, love it to death, but it's getting WAY too much representation in this game. Not to mention the series is getting the Onii-chan/Waifu treatment like Persona...

-Cloud: Dumb, just dumb. Never been in a legitmate FF game on a Nintendo console, overrated as all heck, and the cool aspects about him keep getting butchered by rabid beggar fans and Square Enix. (Have fun with your episodic remake )



R_Champ commented on Minecraft Finally Digs Its Way Onto the Wii U ...:

Minecraft owned by Mojang: "It won't be a good fit" Puts on hipster glasses
Minecraft own by Microsoft: "$$$$$? OK!!!"

I'm not as butthurt as some people on here, but I do think Minecraft is one of the most overrated games ever created and don't really consider it "big news" but it's not really bad news either so I'm fine with it. Xenoblade Chronicles X is all the good news I ever really needed



R_Champ commented on Video: The Latest Xenoblade Chronicles X Survi...:


GameXplain did a good Q&A series (like an hour of answering questions!) about this game and a lot the questions from fans had similar concerns about the complexity of the game. Apparently a lot of it is easier to learn in game (though watching this videos and reading the manual helps) and some aspects can be somewhat overlooked for people who are overwhelmed at first (such as armor skill slots, etc.).

It's also possible this game is too overwhelming for people who'd rather just have a more casual experience. Customizaiton in JRPGs have dropped off significantly in order to streamline the process for more relaxed fans and Xenoblade Chronicles X is making no notions of hand holding like Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, etc. Even the survival vids are insulting our intelligence! Haha.



R_Champ commented on Xenoblade X Developers Talk About the Game's C...:

I've played all the Xeno games. And it's the only JRPG series I feel hasn't sold its soul through nostalgia pandering. Sure, they slap the Xeno of everything...but the gameplay, plot, music, and characters are always changing in smart ways.

I feel like they're making an amazing, original game, without watered down content. Monolith should sit on Squaresoft's old throne...too bad most people are still too busy worshiping the inbred son which is Sqaure Enix to realize the true succesor to king of JRPGs.



R_Champ commented on Donkey Kong Champ Billy Mitchell Loses Legal B...:


I've decided to be the one person who isn't a regular show fanboy responding to your post. I don't know why it's still a thing either, but I also don't know how Family Guy, The Simpsons, or tons of other shark jumping shows are still things as well.

That said, Family Guy and Simpsons were originally gold...I barely got through one episode of Regular Show.

And to people referencing South Park: they have a team of lawyers that find ways to squeeze by lawsuits. One of which is not every saying something directly about someone. Saying Mitchell flat out "cheats" isn't something South Park would do. They'd just show him cheating without saying it.



R_Champ commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

People must be really upset by his reviews. Just let the author write the review for Xenoblade so he can write a positive one for a change...unless he hates that which case he's dooooooooomed T_T.

Seriously though, Xenoblade Chronicles X looks like a swish. If you're angry he gave a low score to Devil's Third and Mario Tennis then you're playing the wrong game.



R_Champ commented on Poor Odds of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth ...:

Looks at Bayonnetta, Fast Racing Neo, Smash Bros. 4, Mario Kart, and tons of other visually impressive games
Looks at Afterbirth
I get people don't want to put games on WiiU for monetary or technical misunderstanding, but after seeing the amazing visuals on Wii U already that severly outclass Binding of just makes tweets like this look foolish.



R_Champ commented on Shovel Knight is Now Playable on Wii U Emulato...:


Emulators are like bongs, By itself it's nothing intimidating or illegal...but we ALL know what it's going to be used for so why even make the "technically is legal" excuse when we all know why it's there.



R_Champ commented on Editorial: Linkle May be a Clunky Introduction...:

I still don't get the obsession of gender swapping Link. I totally agree there should be a Zelda game with a main female character, but how about, uh, I dunno...Zelda?!!! Or Impa, or any other tons of cool female LoZ characters.

Linkle seems more like a weird anime/hentai fetish and less of actual gender equality.

Zelda game where Zelda is the main's really that simple...



R_Champ commented on Video: Here's How Much Those Data Packs for Xe...:


Yeah, when I heard they were making these packs available I figured it'd be unplayable off disc, but that's not too horrible. That said, I'll at least download a few of the packs just for the sake of convenience. It's neat they provide it but don't require it.



R_Champ commented on New Splatoon Patch Adds Fresh Gear, Adjusts Ra...:

As much as KDR was a silly way to go about ranking, I think the Win to Loss ratio idea is even worse.

At least with KDR represented probably 50-60% of your skill (not so much if you're just camping for kills). Win/Loss represents 25% of your skill at best. I've been on so many teams where I'm destroying the other team (holding the tower, controlling zones, killing two/three team people at once, assasinating camping snipers, etc.)...and we still get destroyed because my team decides it's wise to run head first into a bunch of bubble shields, Krakens, camping roller flickers, camping Aerosprays, and snipers.

Some kind of combination of KDR and Win/Loss would make more sense to show how much YOU contributed to your team.



R_Champ commented on Final Fantasy's Cloud Is Set To Cause Some Str...:

Gaccck, Gaaaaaackk, uuurrrrrrkk...sorry I'm dry reaching because of how sick this makes me. There are legions of of amazing Nintendo characters that could have filled the roster slot...but instead we get...Cloud. A character with zero history with Nintendo before that hash-out upcoming cross-over that's coming out. Not to mention all the big name games Cloud is in are on Sony systems. Who's next? Goku?

Don't get me wrong. I actually really like FFVII (still own the PS version), but this is the dumbest roster fill. Dumber than Ryu...which is REALLY hard to believe I'm saying that. We should just get a DLC stage where the characters fight on top of a PS4 and be done with it.



R_Champ commented on Feature: Nintendo Life's Top 10 Super Mario Pl...:


In terms of level design, fun, and raw creativity I might have to agree. Galaxy 2 did pretty much everything extremely well. Factoring in nostalgia, insanely crisp controls, creative secret exits, and phenomenal overworld then I have to agree with the list and go with Mario World.

To be fair it's hard to compared 2D and 3D though so I'd say they're both my favorites and overall this is a pretty good list. I always thought Mario 3 was a tad overrated though.



R_Champ commented on Assault Android Cactus Still Coming To Wii U, ...:


Haha, that was my exact same response. This game taken sooooo much longer to release than promised. It really killed the hype fo rme too. I'll probably still get it....probably. I could always get it on Steam, but I love the off-screen aspect of the Wii U too much.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:


Calling it a Master's Thesis is being awfully generous

I thnk time unlocks are a bit silly...but, yeah, I don't need to write an essay about it. And I'm surprised people even debate with Yorumi or his minions anymore.It's one of those situations where if you ignore them they'll find somewhere else to go be butthurt (Neogaf and IGN are popluar havens).

Mario Maker looks amazing. I won't a few things I don't like ruin the experience for me...or whine incessantly to fans...on a Nintendo fan site...



R_Champ commented on Mighty No. 9 Producer Shares Regret Over Delay...:


Yeah, that's exactly the vibe I was getting. It starting out feeling like a triumph over Capcom's lack of care for its Megaman fans...but now it's feeling way to much like Capcom with more interest in bleeding fans that appealing to them.



R_Champ commented on Super Smash Bros. Version 1.1.0 Update is Now ...:

$12: 16 Great Mario Kart Stages, and 6 characters
$10: A bunch costumes with no gameplay value and two old levels...

Am I the only one who's confused? No? Everyone will buy this Capcom-style DLC with glee? Arlight then...



R_Champ commented on Latest Splatoon Splatfest Results Are In, Eati...:


I think it's less hacking and more the Aerospray RG being overpowered. Especially with special gauge boosting skills.

-Cover a center area QUICKLY with the Aerospray RG
-Launch a rocket
-Camp and kill everyone who runs in before they see you because of the absurb fire rate
-Recover whatever space the people you camped took
-Launch another rocket

Now imagine this pattern with 3-4 Aerospray RGs on the same team. It's the same tactic with the Kraken Roller. Cover, camp, Kraken, repeat.

That's why I use Blaster-type weapons mostly. It DESTROYS 80% of campers...and they're precious rocket gauges :3 Pop...POP! You splatted salty_camping_kid999997894.



R_Champ commented on Weirdness: Splatoon Has Been Impressively Recr...:

Emperor from Star Wars: "You want this? Don't you? (Hand on a copy of Splatoon) I can feel the hate swelling in you now. Take your mods, try to replicate the amazing originality of Splatoon like Minecraft modders, and your journey to the dark side will be complete!"



R_Champ commented on Ryu, Roy, New Stages and More Now Available in...:

sigh. Roy and Lucas are a given because they were in previous games and still somewhat relevant to Nintendo's future, but Ryu is one of the biggest wastes of a roster slot I've ever seen. He's already in too many fighting games, and Capcom has pretty much pulled 90% of support for Nintendo hey, let's give them free promotion through a insanely precious roster slot by allowing them to fill it with their Goku-level relevant character...dumb, so dumb.



R_Champ commented on Shantae: Half-Genie Hero Looks Stunning in New...:

I love the Shantae series, but this game looks a little meh to me. I don't like the art style as much, the animations don't look as fluid or quirky, and the gameplay/controls look slower and more clunky (ie the monkey). Not to mention they had to backtrack on initially white-washing Shantae (see the screenshot vs. the trailer title screen) which is a horrible place to start when making a sequel to one of the FEW games that features a female main character who isn't white (well, wasn't white).

Of course I'll have to wait and see, but this game doesn't feel right.



R_Champ commented on ​There's Already a Splatoon Inspired Minecra...:

I love how creative and talented people are. These mods are boring as hell though. It's like asking "Do you love Splatoon, CoD Zombies, and Fallout? Great! Now how would you like them with terrible, blocky, unfitting graphics, horrifically bad controls, dumbed-down gameplay, none of the original atmorspehre, weapons that hardly represent their original counter-parts...." To which I always have to say, no thank you, I actually have the original (good) versions.



R_Champ commented on Reaction: There is a Positive Angle to Nintend...:

Haha, talk about bad timing. Servere Network issues during a limited-time global testfire. I've heard a lot of people wanting Nitendo to be more like Sony...well, you got your wish Though it may not have been in the way you expected!



R_Champ commented on Feature: The Poor Career Choice of Super Smash...:

I've never really been too much into sports or esports from a big-bucks perspective. I like playing, I like watching, I don't really like rich people getting involved...because then we get stuff like the 1921 World Series, Tom Brady and his balls, and Daigo the Beast. Money corrupts the basic fun of things and leaves people dead after a 49ers game. I'm more of a play competively, but have a day job kind of person. Games are for fun (sports and e-sports)...when games become work we expect top-dollar for...then you've totally lost me O_O



R_Champ commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Paid-DLC Details Emerge...:

Nope, just nope. Love Nintendo, love Monolith, love legitimate DLC (like Mario Kart 8). But I REFUSE to support this day-1 DLC BS. TBH, the game is probably worth the extra price but I just can't bring myself to support these kind of sleezy DLC tactics.



R_Champ commented on Composer Noriyuki Iwadare Returns For More Lan...:

"how do you feel about the return of Noriyuki Iwadare?"

The only answer anyone should ever give to this question is "great!". He's created some amazing soundtracks. Even though he's lesser known, I think he makes the best battle themes of any Japanese composer. I haven't played Grandia 2 or Lunar in like 10 years, but I STILL work out to those battle themes.
