Ryu_Niiyama commented on Animal Crossing Content Is Coming To Monster H...:

Yeah more ways that people can enjoy many of their fave franchises in one game! OR if they don't like it they can totally ignore it. Shouldn't break the core game experience. I swear sometimes gaming is too serious for me.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Mother 4 Is On The Way, But It's Not Being Mad...:

@Hyperstar96 Problem is they are trying to present this as a part of the mother series. This is NOT mother 4. When you do fan work you don't try to pass it off as part of the intended canon. Nothing wrong with setting it in the same universe or picking up where the official game left off, but they need to make it really clear that this is not a true entry in the series. That's why fanworks need to have a ton of disclaimers and even that means very little... it is well within the copyright holder's right to prevent fanworks from seeing the light of day. Case in point Anne Rice had FF.net pull all fanfiction about her books from the site.

Still I think they should have put the resources towards their own game instead.

Well I'm sure Nintendo's lawyers were getting bored with nothing to do anyway. Seriously, just make your own game and say it was inspired by Mother. Of course once Nintendo lays down the C&D hammer folks will act like Nintendo is the bad guy.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

One of my favorite game developers. I just hate that he gets so much abuse from the vocal minority. The man is pretty much crippling his hands to make his games the best they can be. I hope he takes a long vacation after Smash is done...he has earned it.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

@AugustusOxy What? I don't even... ok.

Smash has an will always be a celebration of Nintendo's vast IP library. Everything about the game screams this, from the stages to the diversity of characters chosen. These IP also have a wide range of artstyles but most are more Japanese in artistic influence for obvious reasons. Nintendo also has a large range of characters of all genders, so I don't think I understand the aversion to female characters. Not only that many of the female characters in Smash either have a male counterpart or alt skin that is male. Of course the more popular franchises have more reps. I don't expect to see Rob Haywood running around in this game since his game isn't very popular. Still be it via assist trophy or just the standard trophies almost every franchise is represented.

What exactly are you looking for from smash and how does this current roster truly differ from previous installments as far as representation?

@Ryno I don't. I'm still urked about the differences between Aladdin on the SNES and the Genesis. Don't get me wrong I don't want every game in the world to be a port. I love spin off titles. However I do like that now we have the option of having more games that are portable but otherwise the core gameplay is the same as the consoles. Personal example: I love fighting games. Yet I often work multiple jobs so I love that I can get many of those games on either the vita or the 3ds. On the weekends or when I have a lull that I only have to work one job I prefer to play on a console with my arcade stick. However right now I'm super grateful that I have the option to still play these games in light of my currently busy schedule. I hope more franchises do that in the future.

That being said I'm glad the games are not exactly the same. the unique modes are what sold me on the 3ds version. The only thing that I feel should be the same on a fighting game across multiple platforms is the roster. I'm glad Sakurai feels the same.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

good scores overall. Especially considering that the west usually doesn't review warriors games well. I hope this secures additional games in the franchise. So the roster can grow like the rest of the crossover warriors games do.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

@Einherjar Fighting games are my favorite genre so I don't understand most of the reactions I see in the smash community. But I think I'm just used to roster changes and re-balancing and differences between handheld and console fighters. We could have had a soul calibur broken sword fiasco.

Either way smash is going to be great. IC will be back next gen. At this point i can really see Nintendo going to Sakurai and asking him what specs does he need to have smash run smoothly on their next handheld.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

@Einherjar Well to SF3's credit the roster was overhauled and it was the third revision that is usually considered the best. The highlight of that game is the improvement to the game mechanics themselves rather than the roster. SF4 is imo in between 2 and 3 in terms of the gameplay and speed. Though I know a few people that fell in love with the roster. I'm a Ryu player so I'm always covered though.

@ToxieDogg Not everyone is buying all of the versions of the game. Like I said in my previous post this allows everyone to play the same base game no matter what. Stages and music don't matter as the game is centered around the playable fighters since it is a fighting game. There would be a riot if one version had a certain number of characters and the other didn't.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

@ToxieDogg Then the complaint would be that Nintendo is forcing gamers to buy both because they have different rosters. Tons of multiplats that go to handheld and console try to produce the same game and usually when the handheld game is different it gets panned. Nintendo wanted to give as close to an equal experience as possible to give consumers an honest choice. Can't afford a wiiu? cool you can still play smash. Don't want a 3ds? cool you can still play smash. Got both? cool you can still pay smash.

@kukabuksilaks Internet high five. Thank you for posting the difference! It is not like Sakurai got lazy or something. The 3ds honestly couldn't handle IC properly. If Sakurai had gimped them just to keep them in, people would be grabbing pitch forks. They will be back next gen. I'm pretty sure after the success of the handheld game Nintendo is going to keep that in mind when building the next handheld.

Ryu_Niiyama commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

@Jazzer94 I'd almost ask you to repost this because you are right on the money. I have never broken a controller playing a fighting game and I play a lot of fighting games. Some people act like the dead zone on the sticks is a mile in circumference. You don't need that much force to play and even in the heat of the moment you should have enough control not to use that much force.

Been calling a Nov close to black friday release since they announced the window. That is normally when they do their Holiday game anyway. I'm just glad it is before black friday because I know I have to work that day and I'd like to get some smash time in prior to that.

@BLPs Just don't get a roomie. I got bullied as well as a kid and it made my first roommate situation... interesting. The girl was a nice person but she was really popular so the amount of traffic almost drove me nuts. I got single housing after that.

@BLPs He hopped the fence. If you hop the fence at my house I'm not going to run out and shake your hand. Considering this is the residency of the President and people are well, you know crazy the dude got lucky he didn't get a few shots from a tazer.
