Ralizah commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

It is a very weird date to release the game on, considering what happened in this country on that date. With that said, it's also my mother's birthday, so I don't really associate it with disaster on a personal level.

Yeah, the game isn't a complete reinvention, but it definitely does what any good sequel should do: expands and improves upon the good elements from the original, and reduces or eliminates the bad elements. Obviously some problems remain, but it is still a pretty great game.

@Hikage
I think it says a lot about Western society that the implication is there that people are only virgins because of desperation. God knows there can't be people out there who just aren't interested in pursuing sexual relationships, or who guard their virginity as if it were a precious resource because sex is an act pregnant with sacred meaning to them.

I have no time in my life for a girl or a boy right now. Guess that means I'm some desperate virgin who just can't get laid, right?

You missed out on the "virgin" bit. Basement-dwelling weeaboo virgin.

I don't really care about the review score. What concerns me is that the reviewer barely touches on the story or great music, unfairly criticizes the excellent combat system, and spends a third of the review being offended that the game has boobs in it. It's a terrible review.

Jack Thompson's legacy is alive and well. We might be freaking out over something different, but the culture of fear and prudery is alive again and has infected the majority of the modern gaming press.

I actually had to scroll back up to the top of the page to make sure I wasn't reading a review from Polygon.

I've played the import version of this. Can't speak to the story, but the gameplay is vastly improved from Burst.

All this review communicated to me is that the reviewer is a prude. If someone is uncomfortable with fanservice, they shouldn't play a game series that is famous for its fanservice. Would you assign a person who detests cute platformers to play the latest Mario game?

Ralizah commented on Rumour: Fresh Sources Suggest Shovel Knight Is...:

I like Shovel Knight and all, but he doesn't really deserve a place in the Smash roster. He's kind of a joke character anyway, and he doesn't really have an established presence on multiple Nintendo platforms.

I think Shantae deserves to be in Smash. If not her, and we're allowing for newer characters, then why not an inkling?

Ralizah commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

You can't have employees randomly spilling the beans about what goes on inside your company to the wider world. If he felt he had something really important that he needed to share, then he should have leaked the information to a journalist or website that would be willing to protect his identity as a source.

I feel bad for the guy insofar as I feel bad for anyone who gets sacked and loses their income/insurance/whatnot, but this doesn't reflect poorly on Nintendo at all.

Ralizah commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

What strikes me is how Nintendo seemingly refuses to leverage its vast library of top-notch I.P.s in any kind of exciting way. One would have thought that something along the lines of a SNES 3D Classics lineup would have already graced the handheld.

@Blaze Persona Q's release date was only different by a few days in both regions. Persona 4: Dancing All Night is set to launch in roughly the same time frame as well. I'm hoping the next MegaTen game launches in the same way, as SMTIV's European release was a total fiasco. Not acceptable in the twenty-first century, imo.

@NaughtyOttsel22
We have every right to complain about this, just as you lot have every right to complain about Atlus and its rough history of working with Europe. As to this crazy grudge you seem to have about a game that released 20 years ago... get over it. It was the 90s. I don't understand how this is even relevant at all.

Europe has New 3DS, way nicer Nintendo releases (with special editions Americans never see), multiple games and VC releases that arrive months earlier than they do in the U.S., and several Wii games that never made it over here at all.

The delay of the U.S. release of YWW has been annoying me. Perhaps I'll put the money I was planning on spending on that toward this game instead. It looks nice, and I'd rather support a publisher that prioritizes U.S. releases.
