Ryno commented on Feature: The Key Details on Splatoon, Nintendo...:

Seems like a very rushed, incomplete game especially at $60 for us Yanks. Thank goodness for updates and "DLC" because this is pretty weak at launch. At least they delayed Zelda to release a better and more complete game (for most likely the same price).




Ryno commented on Nintendo Download: 7th May (North America):

No reason the bother with the demo-ish. Nintendo is not telling me when to play games. Nice to see a SNES game pop in there again. I will probably pick up Mega Man & Bass sometime in the future.



Ryno commented on Splatoon Global Testfire Demo Confirmed For Th...:

@rjejr: i didn't watch the direct so I have been catching up. LOL, $60.00 (and maybe an additional $35.00 for amiibo) for an incomplete online multiplayer game with shoehorned-in single player? No thanks, I think I will wait for a sale and the rest of the game.



Ryno commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the Splatoon D...:

I can't believe we have come to the point of hotly anticipating DLC. Anyway, I have definitely cooled on this game. I'm not really into online multiplayer so unless this game has a strong single player component or @rjejr buys it for me I may not get this game in the foreseeable future.



Ryno commented on Three New Nintendo 3DS Bundles Heading to Euro...:

@rjejr: Once again, you nailed it. Nintendo rides the coat tails of their games for to long. I'm tired of just hearing about XBX, how about a release date already? As for Splatoon, well the hype just seems to be artificially fueld due to he drought of other games. I'm actually thinking about getting Legend of Kay in May instead of Splatoon. I don't follow the 3DS that much but seems to late to announce these bundles and from what I hear they don't have much announced for the future.

Skell definition per Wikipedia: Skell, as a stereotypical or archetypal designation, refers to a person who is homeless, vagrant or derelict. It is often used to connote such a person who is habitually engaged in small-time criminal activity, especially by one working as a con artist or panhandler.

This is as bad as "Wigger Wedneday."




Ryno commented on Video: Nintendo Inks In 'Claim Your Turf' Mark...:

@rjejr: My thougts were that I was picture someNIntendo peopel sitting around thinking something like this:
Group Leader: "So guys, let's make this quick. What do you think we should do with this game 'Splatoon,' releasing in a little over a month? Do you think we should try to market it or just put it out there like W101?"
Group Leader Cronies: "We don't know, when's the next game with Mario coming out?"
Some Underpaid and Relateively Unknown Guy (but has some business sense): "Let's try something different with this game, let's actually promote it and I even suggest having a theme and a direction we want to go with it. Something like 'Claim Your Turf' (and pulls up YouTube and shows the Nerf commercials you posted)."
Group Leader: It clicks in his mind like whoa. Smiles and says "there it is," ends the meeting quickly and goes to take credit for this direction with Nintendo head honcho's.



Ryno commented on Best Buy Nabs Exclusive Splatoon Wii U Hardwar...:

Nintendo could've sold-out of these bundles in 5 minutes if they only made it a unique Nintendo style limited edition with a few paint blotches on it. I hope the exclusivity deal was well worth it for both companies as I don't really see this selling all that well.



Ryno commented on This Rodea the Sky Soldier Special Edition is ...:

I picked this up a couple days ago. If anybody is going to get this game you better preorder the Wii U version because that is the only way you are going to get Yuji Naka's "original and real version" which is the Wii copy. The Wii U game is a port of the 3DS game which was not made made by Naka.



Ryno commented on Reaction: LEGO Dimensions Could be a Sales Phe...:

What I really like is how video game companies will no longer include manuals and cut plastic out of video game cases which makes them super flimsy in teh name of "protecting the environment" but they have no problem producing tons of these unnecessary plastic trinkets (and the packaging waste that goes along with them) for their games.

After I'm done collecting the Smash amiibo Line, I want to see the whole "toys-to-life" industry crash in on itself.
