RedDevilAde commented on Yooka-Laylee Character Designer Spills on Crea...:

@scamander we know a couple of them worked on it (not like that's news to anyone following this). How "key" they were we don't (Gregg Mayles isn't at Playtonic for a start - the key BK guy, we weren't there during the development so don't know and their statements about what they did are vague suggesting they weren't key, just part of the team - which suggests honesty, not taking credit for other people's work - a good thing IMO). What we've seen so far looks very competent and seems to indicate they can manage a project on their own, hence why I've pledged. Don't think this is enough to know this will certainly be great but I'm happy to roll the dice since I loved BK so much.

It's possible it'll end up mediocre (we don't know how much these guys contributed to the bits that made Banjo Kazooie magic and the lack or originality in the designs/music/logo is a bit of an alarm bell - a bit too similar to BK), but I'll happy to pledge to give them a crack of the whip to see what they can do.

RedDevilAde commented on Zelda-Style Adventure Midora Runs Out Of Kicks...:

Not really familiar with this, but to be fair $73,000 pledged sounds really unrealistic to complete a game of this scope (going by the videos). Sounds like the guy in charge didn't have a clue what it would take to bring this to completion. Lesson: don't back anyone without some kind of track record completing a project (no experience likely means poor ability to estimate costs). Can't find anything about Patrick Mathis/Epic Minds online apart from this project.

RedDevilAde commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

What I'd like to see is that the delivery of streamed games to smart devices along with device agnostic controllers. Conquer these two things and every smart TV becomes a games console. Hardware becomes irrelevant as the architecture is offsite. All hardware manufacturers become purely software publishers/controller makers as clients do not need hardware anymore beyond their smart device. I think this is the (near) future of gaming and I would love to see Nintendo be the trailblazer.

RedDevilAde commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

Sounds like this is a massive wasted opportunity to make full use of the gamepad and hit it out of the park. I think this could have been NintendoLand on steroids if more effort had been put in.
