R_Champ commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:


I totally agree with you. Miiverse is a low-key environment that is great to use when you don't want to get trolled/flamed (except on the Smash Bros. board) so I don't know why people get so upset about it being heavily moderated when there are plenty of whiny environments people can lurk, troll, and post spoilers in for eternity (i.g. Gamefaqs, Neogaf, etc.).

I always see people complain about being warned and banned for "little" things, but it's more than likely they didn't read the rules and then just immediately complained without understanding. I've shown love for non-nintendo games/system, disagreed with users (respectfully, which is IMPORTANT), shared jokes, and lots of other things...and have yet to receive even ONE warning.



R_Champ commented on Feature: How A Team Of Dedicated Fans Is Fixin...:


I wasn't going to put it so bluntly, but yeah, I think you're on the right track there. Not to say it isn't impressive programming, but I considered Brawl to be its own game that doesn't need to be fixed, just accept for what it is (whether you like it or not).

Project M is like Harry Potter fans re-writing the last book so Harry gets married to Hermione.



R_Champ commented on New Online Multiplayer Modes Revealed for Supe...:


I always thought Melee was overrated. Sure, the crisp controls and lack of tripping make it a better competitive title, but the obsessive use of wave dashing, particular characters (Fox), and FD had me going for Brawl every time just because it was more fun/non-restrictive. These new For Fun/For Glory options seem like the best idea yet because it potentially provides both worlds in one package.



R_Champ commented on New Online Multiplayer Modes Revealed for Supe...:

I like that there are variants of Final Destination. One of my biggest problems with the "FD, No items, Marth/Snake/MK" fetishists was the fact I had to stare at that same background and listen to the same five songs over and over and over! Up until they mentioned the FD variants I was almost ready to stick to For Fun mode entirely.



R_Champ commented on Super Smash Bros. Online Code of Conduct to La...:


You're too, sorry. I used to do the same thing with Pikachu and Marth, but I'll make the sacrifice if I have to in order to better online play.

TBH I used to do the constant self destruct thing all the time...but ONLY as a response to someone doing one of the other things in this list. So if I can just report them, then I won't have to suicide and hopefully everyone will be happy, except the person getting reported: they'll just whine on Miiverse how they were banned unjustly even though they obviously didn't read the rules.



R_Champ commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards Are Confirmed for April:


I'm definitely pleased. I didn't buy it when it was first released because I've already beaten it a million times and I'm poor (so poor T_T), but you can't beat free so it's a 100% grab for me just to have it on my Wii U.

I'm also thinking about Art Academy because I love the Wii U version.



R_Champ commented on Video: Check Out The Mario Kart 8 Visual Upgra...:

Some great choices for retro tracks so far, and I'm loving how they make changes to appeal to new game mechanics (like the second bridge being out in Donut Plains 3, and the gliding section in Royal Raceway). Haha, and Moo Moo meadows was my sister's online troll track. She's going to be ecstatic to hear it's back.



R_Champ commented on Review: Advance Wars (Wii U eShop):


"The game is over priced and is on the wrong console, it should have been released on a portable machine. And the score should have reflected this."

Sooooo....the score should be amended to reflect your opinion? You remind me of the Bayonetta 2 fans who're mad (REAL MAD) because it's not on "their" system. No matter what system it's on I hope the reviewer would score it based on merits not on that certain fans are mad that it's not on "their" system.



R_Champ commented on Oddworld's Lorne Lanning Isn't Worried About W...:

I like his mentality. Oh course, it may not last if the game tanks on Wii U, but I'm glad he's taking a chance to give us this great looking game. Heck, you never know. It might turn out it sells decent, just because something has a larger install base doesn't mean instant riches and plenty of indies on Wii U have been successful.



R_Champ commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:

Eh, I'd only like Pac Man if it were classic Pac Man, which I think would be hard to pull off. And Lloyd Irving is as overrated as Kingdom Hearts. Plus, you're probably not going to see a Tales game on a Nintendo system ever again so, like Snake, Tales characters are probably out of the question. Characters like Lloyd, Sora, and Geno can go make sweet fanfiction love in Smash Bros. limbo (Deviant Art).



R_Champ commented on Two Tribes Shoots Down the Possibility of Toki...:


I had the exact same response. I was interested in the game, but when even the developer seems to be squeezing it out I feel a red flag go up, especially with tons of other great games to choose from in the same or lower price range. It's always a shame to see a studio close down/downsize, but I feel we're going to be seeing it more and more often this gen.



R_Champ commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:


GAWD, finally someone says it. Even things like Justin Bieber, Twilight, and Fabio on all those romance novels are also objectification of men, but no one ever seems to touch that. I understand women have gotten the short end of the stick for a long time, but because of that people think it's entirely one-sided and never talk about it.

I think the only solution is constantly ask yourself if you're treating people like people because otherwise you're just a big fat hypocrite. How many of you have school girls, nurses, etc in your internet bookmarks? Probably 95% of you. Is that objectification? You betcha, but as long question your mentality towards women (or men) and try to improve upon it, you can do whatever the heck you want. I got preached at enough in church and towns full of hipsters to know most people are just BS'ing hypocrites about this kind of stuff. Like what you like, just don't be drone.



R_Champ commented on Super Smash Bros. Melee Confirmed for Evo 2014:

Sakurai won't die from old age, some sort of freak accident, or even drug abuse related to his chronic arm pains. Melee fanboys will be the end of him, and they'll dance on his grave in a way that looks like wave dashing...and then one of them will trip...and at that moment they'll realize the irony and childishness of their years of incessant whining. Then they'll just make a project M2.



R_Champ commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:


-Fightsticks: Expensive and usually only good for one thing (I'll let you guess)
-Neo Geo Controllers: LOL, you're grasping at straws (horrible design)
-Playstation Move: LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL...OK, I'm done...LOLOL
-Madcatz fightpads: It's like Neogeo and a fightstick had a ugly one.
-Saturn Controller: "Costs a fortune" Yep, that's viable...and
-Steering Wheels and Pedals: Roommate had one--expensive, bulky, lame.
-Normal PS3 pad: THERE we go! Finally one that's actually viable/good.
-Dancemats: You were REALLY grasping at straws at this point.

So, I think I'll just change my statement to Wii U has the best choice of supported/universal controllers. Because if we're counting crap/obscure/not very supported controllers PS3 will always win.



R_Champ commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

"No on uses?" Ahhhh, I use it...well, I guess I'm just one fan, but I love the thing. Off-screen play, clean HUDs, drawing on Miiverse or with Art Academy, Nintendo Land (LOL, there needs to be more games that use it like that).

I do agree with some comments here's not like HAVE to use off-screen/big controller. Wii U has by far the most (and IMO the best) options for controllers. "PS4life?" Wii Classic controller is just like a PS controller! "XboxOne while the Sony fanboys aren't looking...they bully meT_T!" Wii U Pro is a lot like an Xbox controller. You really can't lose.



R_Champ commented on Latest Mega Man 2.5D Beta Adds New Single Play...:


Haha, I think that's fair. Most old game's difficulty comes from little or NO checkpoints, lack of lives, and tons of memorization. You die? Go ALLLLL the way back to the beginning (but don't forget that disappearing block right near the end, and the special weapon you need to beat the boss, oh, and the fifty insta-kill spike pits). I don't mind it too much, but I agree SNES and beyond is much more accessible.

Not a surprise fans decided to make their own Megaman though. Most ignored series get this kind of treatment. SE's Chrono series got a fan spinoff, but SE caught wind of it and shut it down (granted, it wasn't very good IMO).



R_Champ commented on Interview: HullBreach Studios Outlines Its Amb...:


I know, right? While I was bored today I decided to mosey around the Wii U eShop and I hit the "upcoming games" button and watched a few videos. And I found I wanted like 5-6 of them...and that's just of the ones they have videos

Shame their isn't a release window for this game. TBH that's my entire problem with Wii U. So many amazing few release dates...T_T. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this one though.



R_Champ commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:


Yeah, I think it's more boasting than actual fact at this point. Sure, they may have an un-blockable hack, but more likely they just want people to be like "Wow, Mr. Overweight Hacker/Pirate, you're amazing!" instead of "it could brick my system just so I can be a fat wuss like you and cheat online in Mario Kart and steal games like some PC elitists who think stealing somehow supports devs? Screw that!" LOL, maybe I'm a little too hateful against hackers.



R_Champ commented on Rayman Legends On Wii U Is Still The ''Definit...:

The touch levels are just OK, IMO, when you're playing Solo. But when playing Multiplayer they become a LOT more fun (and would be the reason I'd agree the Wii U version is definitive)...even if you're just moving platforms right before your buddy jumps on them, mwahaha.



R_Champ commented on Sega Has "No Plans" To Release Sonic Boom In J...:


Change can also be bad, but I agree there is no reason to be TOO pessimistic at this point. The only thing that looks like an abomination so far is Knuckles on Roids. The rest looks very promising. I haven't snagged a Sonic game since Sonic Adventure on Dreamcast and this has caught my interest. Tails looks friggin' sweeeeet.



R_Champ commented on A Sonic Boom Game is Dashing Towards Wii U and...:


I agree, Tails and Amy actually look pretty sweet. But yeah, re-imaginings are probably a bad sign for a series.

To make it in this world Tails is gonna have to go full-blown anti-hero. Maybe the first scene in the next game will be Tails shooting up Eggman's base...wait, Sega already tried that angle with Shadow the Hedgehog? Never mind then...



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Still Working On Bringing Game Boy Ad...:


Wasn't there some sort of conflict with Rare? I thought that's why the DKC Trilogy got pulled off of Wii Virtual Console (and why Banjo Kazooie went to 360 Marketplace). I'd love to see them on WiiU/3DS but that may sadly not happen...ever



R_Champ commented on Feature: 10 Nintendo DS Games We Want To See O...:

I'd love to have some great niche titles like SMT: Strange Journey, Rune Factory 3, and Solatorobo (and lots more). From that list Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, and Spirit tracks look great. DQ IX would also be awesome if they included some sort of online or gamepad multiplayer...(though sadly unlikely).



R_Champ commented on Matters Of Import: A Peek Into The Tragically ...:


Well, I'm kinda wishing it now...not so much during the FF VI-X era...

Either way, I'd love to see this game in the West, I figure the only reason they aren't rushing to bring it over is because they know the fanbase is too small over here to make a significant profit without a monthly fee, but also too small not to face a subscription fee backlash from those same fans (kind of like Monster Hunter).



R_Champ commented on Fresh 2013 UK Hardware Sales Figures Keep 3DS ...:

Nintendo needs to concentrate on Wii U exclusives for a while. Even multiplats like Smash Bros--that will be VASTLY superior on Wii U--aren't shaking some people out of the mentality of "Why buy a Wii U when I have the the 3DS to play similar games on?" And that's people who already own a Nintendo console. Imagine trying to convince a die-hard Kingdom Hearts fanboy that "X" will probably be better than SE's entire 2014 lineup. They'd probably try to bludgeon you with their plastic Keyblade they have hung over the fireplace. And that's a more tame example.



R_Champ commented on Intelligent Systems Development HQ Image Emerges:


TOTALLY AGREE. I love intelligent systems and I'm hyper excited Nintendo is at least showing them some love, but the last amazing Paper Mario game was TTYD. A new Paper Mario and Fire Emblem for Wii U would be awesome.


Monolith is another amazing in-house Nintendo studio you might want to try (if you haven't already). IMO they are as good as Intelligent systems, Retro, EAD, etc.



R_Champ commented on Dallas Tech Company iLife Thinks Nintendo Stol...:


EXACTLY what I was thinking. Sure, they could have stolen the tech....eight years ago. That's a long time, especially considering how popular the Wii was so pretty much everyone knew about it. That's patent trolling if I ever saw it. Today, I said 1+1=3 and then patented my up Texas, especially you Bush.



R_Champ commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:


Huh, it's funny I didn't think about it until you mentioned it, but I'd DEFINITELY put Wonderful 101 in the No. 1 spot for third party game of the year...I was actually a little disappointed with Rayman Legends, sure, it was a great game, but once Mario 3D World and W101 were released I was like: Rayman what? But of course everyone has their own opinion. I might put FE:A a little higher too...buuuut I'm kinda a Fire Emblem fanboy so I can't blame people for not liking it as much as I do.



R_Champ commented on Rosalina And Luma Work Their Magic On The Supe...:


I agree with this statement. I understand haters saying there are too many Mario reps in Smash Bros., but I think Rosalina is a completely worthwhile exception especially with how awesome her move set looks.

Also, I'm now calling 2014 the year of Rosalina. She was in SM3DW and now in Smash, and Kart. Heck, Nintendo is even hinting Mario Galaxy 3...Year of Rosalina: 2014.



R_Champ commented on Nintendo Titles Fail to Infiltrate the UK All-...:

LOL, go easy on 'em...they also have Benedict Cumberbatch...KAAAAHN!


I understand what you're saying with 3DS vs. Wii U holiday lineup, but in the United States Mario games tend to sell more than Pokemon, Zelda, and Mario Party combined. Just because some hardcore fans are angry doesn't mean they know more about the market than people at Nintendo counting the money.


Totally. Iwata has actually done really well overall. People crying over him to resign is just another facet of the negative feelings people are spreading about Nintendo in general...yeah, resign Iwata, so Vita can actually start selling or Apple can finally gain total control of the market with stuff like Angry Birds :P



R_Champ commented on Rumour: Smash Bros. Heading for a Spring 2014 ...:


I agree with you on the quality aspect. Mario 3D World is a good example. It took FOREVER, but was well worth the wait IMO. Sure, I want Smash Bros. now, but I don't want a watered down version just so they can get it out sooner. Releasing the 3DS version first does make some sense though...but I doubt the crazies who are claiming it looks better than the Wii U version would be happy with the cuts it'd probably receive because of that.



R_Champ commented on Super Mario 3D World Struggles Against PS4 Tit...:


Was thinking the EXACT same thing. When people call me a gamer I get offended now because gamers are apparently the people who would rather buy crappy games on a popular console than amazing games on a less popular one. I mean, I'm all down for Last of Us, Halo, etc...but Knack? Why not just buy nothing and stroke your gameless PS4 in front of your "gamer"'d have the same effect.



R_Champ commented on Rune Factory Developer Neverland Closes Its Doors:


O_O, I know. I put RF4 on the back burner because I didn't have the $$. I better start turning in cans or I may never get it!

I was also a huge fan of Lufia...such a shame to see one of my favorite small developers go under...but I'm probably going to have to get used to it this gen...
