Royalblues commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off a Series of New Thir...:

They don't know I jealous I am of them. Puyo Puyo is one of my favorite games of all time. We can't even get an English translation of Puyo Puyo Tetris.

In fact, Our last Puyo game was released 10 years ago!!! Thankfully, I have a copy of it for DS,and I carry it around with me almost everyday, as a good luck charm.

Royalblues commented on New Avengers Game, With Spider-Man, is Swingin...:

This is cool. I guess this answers my question of whether or not there is a Japanese equivalent to weaboos, that love western stuff so much they pretend to know their culture.

Anyway, I'm glad Japan seems to like the Avengers.

Royalblues commented on Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino Leaked for Pokém...:

FINALLY!!!

I don't care if it's just Audino, I'm GLAD that there is finally a 5th gen Mega Pokemon. 5th gen is my favorite, and has some of my favorite Pokemon. Now I just need them to make megas of my three favorite 5th gen mons; Excadrill, Haxorus, and Mienshao!

Royalblues commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Won't Bring Live Twitch Stre...:

If it is just gameplay without commentary, I kind of agree. If it also means removing potential streams that have commentary, then this is just a stupid sentiment. Isn't the Wii U capable of voice-chatting and such things? If so, then there is no reason not to include twitch streaming. Just stupid.

But I guess this also aligns with Nintendo's need to control ad revenue from people who play their games (which I don't blame them), so, hmm

Royalblues commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

@lividd3ad You raise a very good point indeed.I feel the same way in regards to comic books. I don't know if you care about comics from DC or Marvel, but there are currently 4 comics with people of color as the lead from both companies combined, and it annoys the heck out of me.

It makes me feel like people want kids to believe what the default human is. Also in the last generation of video game protagonists were shaven middle-aged white dudes. So yeah, I agree, diversity is important as hell.

I just don't know what a black Princess would look like from a Mario game lol. I don't think they would get her look right.

Royalblues commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

Generally, whenever I see comments on the internet that begin with "speaking as a black man" or have the phrase "I'm black, but..." I generally tend to disregard the comment as an excuse for an anonymous person to speak racist opinions on the web.

HOWEVER... I'm black, and I've never been bothered by the whiteness of Nintendo's characters. Japanese people in general have little to no exposure to black people, so what would I expect.
Japanese people take many inspirations from what they see of Hollywood movies, and how many of those have predominant black characters in them?

Needless to say, Tekken's Raven character is still awesome.

Royalblues commented on Nintendo's Plan for "Redefining the Definition...:

Tells me not to buy that trash Wii U. It was a good call to save my money. Video game consoles are supposed to be a years-long investment. Not something that is to be terminated in a mere 4 years. I learned from the SEGA Saturn.

Royalblues commented on Feature: Time For a Super Smash Bros. New Chal...:

Greninja is the best pokemon after Lucario. Seriously. I was surprised and glad to see him in this game. Who needs legendaries when you have a frog ninja?

Also, I am thoroughly satisfied with Yoshi's inclusion. I've been maining him since the 64 days.

Royalblues commented on Nintendo Shows Off Upcoming Golden Sun and F-Z...:

Nintendo is... I don't know if I would describe this sort of move as clever, but whatever it is, I don't like it.
Despite the fact that the Nintendo 3DS is wholly capable of emulating and playing Game Boy Advance games, they have excluded them on the 3DS because they think a game like Golden Sun and what have you other GBA games will help sell some Wii-U's.

Clever and stupid at the same time.
Needless to say, as much as I love Golden Sun, I will play it again on my GBA when that time comes, and neither that game nor any other GBA title will sell me a Wii-U.

However, once smash comes out, oh boy...

Royalblues commented on "Dark And Edgy" Sonic The Hedgehog Film Report...:

Jeez, why? These guys should understand that Sonic at his best caters to younger audiences. If you make Sonic a serious character, and put him in serious predicaments, you are destined to fail. This could be one of the final nails in his coffins, if his fanbase wasn't so rabid.

What they should do is make it a kid movie, but pepper some adult humor in there if they have too.

I haven't read the whole interview yet, but I feel the need to type this before I continue. Respect to the guy for representing for the Bronx!!!
I know exactly what arcades he's talking about when he mentioned White Planes Road and 242nd street and the one that was on Allerton. Maybe he was the one that kicked my but in Marvel 1 all those years ago lol. I might have met him without knowing who he was. Kudos to the man.
Shame you can't find an arcade in the BX any more.

Royalblues commented on World Record Speed Runner Just Can't Stop Play...:

@DeathlyDarkness Aww man. If 'twerk' is in the dictionary, then we do live in a sad world. One more thing before I go. If moving your fingers qualifies as an athletic sport(granted, there is some hand-eye coordination to consider) then TV stations should televise and sponsor competitive dishwashing, since there are many factors and patterns to consider when washing dishes.
Hell, I'd watch it, probably. No, I wouldn't.
Either way, that would be insulting to Boxers, Basketball players, Football players (American Football), wrestlers, and other athletes who've injured themselves beyond the point of return to gave a PC gamer with carpal tunnel syndrome walk up to him or her and say that he was an athlete. There is real risk to that stuff.

Royalblues commented on World Record Speed Runner Just Can't Stop Play...:

I feel strongly about video games too, but never in my right mind would I call playing games, no matter how high the level, engaging in an athletic sport. Especially when I see real athletes, and the physical training they have to endure, and the abuse their bodies - not just their minds but their bodies - have to go through.

Royalblues commented on Pokémon Bank Remains Offline in Japan as Nint...:

Pokemon company is stupid for making us have to import pokemon across the internet this time around. I seriouly hope this fails so that when gen 7 comes around, all you need is two handheld devices again. This is in my opinion absolutely unnecessary.

Royalblues commented on Nintendo Left Online Out Of Super Mario 3D Wor...:

These nintendo guys are just plain not smart. Just having the option for online multiplayer would not have killed the game.You can't make a game better by excluding an option that can help enhance gameplay. These people are delusional. And people wonder why the PS4 and XB1 are fast on the track to surpassing this crap in sales.

Royalblues commented on Video: Xbox One vs. Nintendo 64:

That was a funny video. I'm glad that I am such a person that can take a video like this and see it for what it is - comedy - and not take it so seriously, because let's face it, if you call yourself a gamer, console wars would not matter to you either way.
Having said that, darn it, some of the best hours of my life have been spent in front of the TV with MK64 or Zelda OoT or M64 hooked on my 64.

Royalblues commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

Smash, Kong, X and Kart. At least the Wii U will have 4 great games this year *if X comes out this year). Now I hope for a bigger 3rd party presence on the system, because I am tired of the story of Mario and Zelda holding a Nintendo platform.

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

@electrolite77 Think about it this way. Zelda on the 3DS faced stiff competition against it's peers in the 2013 library, as there are numerous games that came out that could be argued deserved the title. And it still won. That means LBW is really that good.
With Mario 3D world, there was hardly any competition for GOTY on the Wii U, so of course it is going to win.The system is starved for games.
I mean, I know you are still going to argue my logic, but see it one last way: if the Wii U had the variety of games that the competition is getting, I highly doubt the GOTY would be SM3DW. As fun as that game is (and yes, I have played it), I would hardly call it the most engaging gaming experience this year.

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

What a surprise. A Mario and Zelda game make game of the year. In my opinion (speaking as a person who's played most of the major 3DS games this year, sans Fire Emblem, but I have watched extensively its gameplay), I'd have to say that Etrian Odyssey IV and Animal Crossing New Leaf are the two 3DS games of the year. EO was more engaging to me than any other RPG this year, mainly due to the game's fighting system, and brutal difficulty that compel the player to employ meticulous strategy in order to progress.
As for Wii U Game of the Year, I can't say, because I don't have the system. But I will say this: It speaks volumes about the Wii U that the best game this year for it is a Mario game. That shows that it hardly has anything to offer.
Just my two cents. I'm mainly a handheld gamer these days anyway.

Royalblues commented on Rumour: Minecraft Is Already In Development Fo...:

Let me guess. This is going to be the "definitive version" of the game.
Well, I've never played Minecraft, and still don't know what it's about (I'll have to check it out), but it is a mighty fine gesture of them to bring it to the Wii U,even though chances are that people who are even marginally interested in it have it for something else.I may just end up getting it on Vita since I can take it everywhere with me.
