Rafie commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

To be real, I agree with is statement about VR. I'm certainly not sold on it and believe that ship has sailed long ago. HOWEVER, dude (Reggie) just looks salty that Nintendo had a terrible conference and looks to be ragging on the competition.



Rafie commented on Star Fox Zero Marks An Explosive Return To For...:

The graphics isn't the concern here, guys/gals. The game still looks good. I just want the gameplay to be smooth and innovative. It looks to be headed in that direction. So far, it looks like Nintendo has the best 1st party line up for the fall 2015. Very good indeed.



Rafie commented on Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Is Coming To The Wii...:

I have to say this. I know I'll get flamed, but I'm still gonna say it. I was very underwhelmed by Nintendo's conference. They could have had a stronger showing then this. I'm actually quite saddened. This is nothing like their E3 of last year. Profound sadness.....:(



Rafie commented on Disney Infinity Producer Brands amiibo Stock S...:

Some of you are Nintendo apologists. Call them out when they are in the wrong. I do believe Nintendo purposely hold supply back for higher demand. It's not cool. They can easily make more amiibos if you see that the market is high for them. Also Nintendo needs to not make stores hold exclusive figures. Make it readily available to all.

The guy (Disney Infinity) had a good point. I'm upset with Nintendo with the handling of amiibos. They got to get it together here!



Rafie commented on Mighty No. 9 Signature Edition Will Not Be Ava...:

Now I can't justify why this isn't coming to Wii U. Also to be honest, a lot of the PS4/Xbox backers don't care for the statue at all. Most of them claim that it looks too generic like a McDonald's toy. Their words, not mine. I'm not interested in it myself, but it's pretty damn stupid not to give the Wii U fans their chance at it.

Look on the bright side though, Mega Man Amiibo blows that statue out the water. :)



Rafie commented on ​Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Gets a Wi...:

Wow some of you are gonna be a while wiping that egg off of your face!
Anyway, I think this is the same studio that developed that Batman game for the Vita/3DS. If so, then this is good. I'm getting the PS4 version, but I'm happy for the Wii U owners as well.



Rafie commented on Don't Hold Your Breath On Those Marth amiibo R...:

@JaxonH I keep forgetting the U.S. isn't the "entire world". Hehehe I always forget that Nintendo has to supply other countries with amiibos. Still, Nintendo should do a survey of sorts. Just to see what amiibos are needed most. I'm sure the Fire Emblem and Xenoblade series would get the most votes. Also the Kid Icarus series(although Palutena isn't out yet).



Rafie commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

Well I have all 3 just so I don't miss games from anyone. Period. I don't do console loyalty. Just loyalty to the games. This is why you either get a Wii U/PS4 or Wii U/Xbox one...or maybe Wii U/PC. I keep adding Wii U because Nintendo games don't go to PC.

I understand that some of you are upset. I mean yeah, Castlevania started on Nintendo. At the same time, times were a lot different then. As far as Nintendo monopolizing whilst establishing a hardcore fanbase. Nintendo today (speaking generally about the Wii U) isn't the same as the Nintendo back then. As far as the relationships with 3rd parties that is. 3rd parties don't do well on Nintendo platforms anymore. It MAY have been a business decision seeing as they're a small studio that needed a kickstarter to get the game up to begin with. Just speculating though.



Rafie commented on Updated Documents Point to Multiple amiibo Res...:

@No-longer-postin Thank you! Who gives a hoot about restocking stock that's already THERE!!! The only amiibo that's rare out of those is Shulk. PIt, Wii Fit Trainer, Little Mac, Captain Falcon, etc needs to be restocked. Not those other ones. Nintendo knows this. Starting to think they're trolling here.



Rafie commented on Nintendo of America Apologises for amiibo Shor...:

@JaxonH I've been on my friend. I may comment here and there. Just not on every article. Anyway, thank you for the invite. I may take you up on that. I really want amiibos like King Deedede, Lil Mac, Fire Emblem char, Xenoblade char, etc. I NEED THEM!!!! LOL

@Spartacus3765 I want Jigglypuff so freaking bad when it drops. I know I won't be able to get it. I only was able to preorder the Splatoon 3pack.



Rafie commented on Nintendo of America Apologises for amiibo Shor...:

@JaxonH Eh I agree and disagree friend. Sure, I have ONE amiibo that is rare at the moment. (Shulk) Outside of that, every amiibo that I currently have, which is only 17, can be purchased. I think the only semi-rare ones are Mega Man and Toad in my area.



Rafie commented on Konami Removes Its Listing from the New York S...:

SOMEBODY QUICK!! Input the Konami code for infinite lives! Konami is going to need it after this last stupid decision to cancel "SILENT HILLS"....not the Silent Hill franchise altogether. Silent Hills (with an S) was the project with Kojima, Del Toro, and Norman Reedus. From the demo, was shaping up to be a great game. Now Konami has been making decisions that doesn't seem favorable at all.



Rafie commented on Nintendo Marketing Boss Says amiibo Expectatio...:

Funny thing is....I feel like I have only one rare amiibo. I have Shulk. The rest can be found. Well except for Mega Man. Sonic stopped becoming so rare as well. Maybe Toad....MAYBE! Everything else I have can be found in the store. I hate that I see Disney Infinity characters any and everywhere, but not Nintendo characters I'm interested in. If Nintendo satisfies everyone by meeting demand here, then my faith will be restored. However, I'm afraid that Nintendo is "marketing" in a way to keep demand hungry. Not a good look.



Rafie commented on Tales of More Super Smash Bros. amiibo Pre-Ord...:

Nintendo needs to stop screwing around and send more amiibos. Stop with the whole "hold back supply to increase demand" thing. It takes the fun out of collecting them. Disney doesn't do it. You see their characters everywhere. Why is Nintendo doing this?!



Rafie commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

@DESS-M-8 I understand that. Still, Nintendo's monetary print is all over B2 (Bayonetta 2). So they did fund it. Probably more than half. I thought the reason GTA 3 only came out on PS2, because Xbox was...well unproven (An assumption of mine, not that it was right one). Also I thought Nintendo didn't want terribly violent games on their console.



Rafie commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

@DESS-M-8 Nintendo did fund it. Otherwise, the game wouldn't have existed. Kamiya has stated this several times.

Also your claim everything 3rd party goes multiplat is flat out wrong! I won't even go into the many games that this falls under. Also Sony did not fund Red dude. Sony bought the old dev that worked on those games in the 90's. Big difference! GTA never had exclusive rights to Sony. The franchise wasn't exclusive. If a platform pays for the development of a game, you can be certain that it's going no where but on their console. IF they paid for the development!

Mark my words, Street Fighter V will appear no where else, but PS4 and PC. Street Fighter V would have to be under a different moniker for others to have it. Timed exclusive or not. You know...Street Fighter: The Return or something like that.



Rafie commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

@Hy8ogen Nope...not for Wii U. Exclusive to only PS4 & PC. If Sony helped fund this game, you can be sure there are stipulations in the contracts to prevent others from getting it. Although they (Capcom) claim there won't be other versions, just add still wouldn't change the fact that the platforms will only be PS4 and PC. Microsoft funded Dead Rising 3. You don't see that going anywhere. Titanfall either. Look at Bayonetta 2. Nintendo funded that. It's the same thing here.



Rafie commented on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem Wii U Cross...:

I know I'm about to get flamed for this, but the graphics was kind scratch WAS underwhelming compared to what the Wii U can do. I know, I know graphics isn't everything. I just didn't expect it to look like a Wii game. However I'll still be picking this up. They still have plenty of time to polish up the game. I don't want to criticize too heavy. My apologies if I offended anyone.



Rafie commented on Feature: Say Hello To The CPS Changer, Capcom'...:

I want this! I don't care if I have the emulators to all the games Capcom has in the past. I want this dangit! This is my first time hearing of an actual console from Capcom. I would have BEGGED my parents to get me this. Hahaha Thanks @Damo for the read man. Great news!



Rafie commented on Zen Pinball 2 Set to Hit a New High Score for ...:

I just wish we had some Nintendo themed packs. However, that's a dream now. Zen wants their tables available everywhere. Of course a Mario or Zelda themed table will be Wii U/3DS exclusive.

Btw, I'll have to ask Barbie what's going on with the 3DS this time around.



Rafie commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:

I can't stand folks like that. It's a dang on game! What's wrong with half dressed characters IN A GAME?! Most of us gamers play to escape the harsh realities of life and enjoy full immersion of video games and what they offer fictionally. Japan has always had taste in games that best suited what I'm looking for. That's why I continue to support games made by them.



Rafie commented on Rumour: Nintendo Plotting amiibo Super Mario C...:

Gosh WHY!! WHY MUST YOU DO THIS TO ME!!! I have a hard enough time trying to convince my wife that we mustn't pay the energy bill yet, but buy these amiibos. Now they come out with these! Good bye cell phone bills (which in turn...good bye cell phone service :p).
