Samurai_Goroh commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

I think that if Nintendo included same-sex marriage in the game, it wouldn't be able to get an E/ 3+ rating. And I think that's the only reason they choose not to. They want their game to target the largest audience they can. And children are a very important audience for them.
Nintendo is just a company trying to make the best decision for it's business. In the 90's it meant blood and gore-free games on the SNES to keep it family-friendly. In 2014, it means not being thrown in the middle of a social and political debate it has nothing to do with.
I am not homophobic, by the way. But I am against gay marriage. And ironically, I live in a country where it is already legal for some years. But, also a country where I still can stand for my opinions.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Dragon Quest X Reaches One Million Sales In Japan:

1 million over two years and three platforms (Wii, Wii U and PC) doesn't sound too good. Granted, I have no idea how much Square can squeeze from the loyal one million customers on a monthly basis, but I think it's safe to say that by turning Dragon Quest into a paid MMO, they shot themselves in the foot. They could have so much more sales worldwide if they just followed the recipe laid out by DQ IX on the DS, how hard could that be? Shooting themselves is all Square has being doing of lately.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Review: Quake II (Nintendo 64):

Quake III Arena is to this date my favourite first-person shooter. I played on the PC and on Dreamcast, and let's just say that I wasn't a fan of the DC controller for shooters, but the PC version was obviously ace. I never played the older games, but if it ever got a VC release (are we even getting N64 anytime soon?), I'd probably dip in.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Major Wii U Retail T...:

I thought of this a few weeks earlier when I went to a store with a Wii U demo kiosk and tried demos of 3D World and Wind Waker. If they produced said demos for kiosks, what's stopping them from making them available on eShop for everyone who already has the system to try at the comfort of their homes?

Samurai_Goroh commented on Electronic Arts CEO Discusses The Company's Pl...:

After the failure of the Virtual Boy, I don't see Nintendo keen to explore this path. Some people don't even like to wear spectacles for 3D. For the majority of people, the idea of a VR headset is terribly unappealing, and well... certainly a lonely gaming experience. Add to that the prohibitive costs of the technology and I couldn't certainly see this straying farther from Nintendo's philosophy than it does.
With Virtual Boy, Nintendo was actually more interested in stereoscopic 3D than virtual reality. If the focus was VR, Virtual Boy would have much more games in 1st person other than Teleroboxer. VR was the hype du jour in the 1990's, but the technology was not really there to do it. With 3DS, they finally got the right technology to fulfil their vision. And without glasses!

Samurai_Goroh commented on SNES Classic Super Mario Kart Is Racing To The...:

@JaxonH I'm not hating on US gamers, mind you. All is cool, bro. I'm just saying, you people complain because of some limited editions you don't get, while we were deprived of masterpieces like Earthbound. Isn't that a little bit worse? Now, were being treated a little bit better by NoE, and that was overdue. NA hasn't been missing out on any games and that what matter's most. Even Xenoblade,The Last Story and Pandora's Tower were still released over there, you just had to wait a bit longer. Meanwhile, I never got ExciteBots on Wii, which is still fairly recent. It's not a matter of coveting my neighbours, it was a game announced for a global audience that I legitimately expected to see released in PAL regions.

@JaxonH Sonic Boom will also be released in Europe and Oceania, dude. When they talk about appealing to western audiences it's pretty much everyone in the world but Asia and Africa.
And as far as European gamers go, historically Europe was always getting the short end of the stick. We never got Super Mario RPG and Earthbound on SNES, we got the N64 on 1997, the GameCube on 2002, we played the slower-paced 50 Hz versions of everything on every console up to the Dreamcast... so maybe it's fate delivering overdue retribution?

A new Metroid, the return of Diddy Kong Racing (don't even know if that's possible because of Rare characters), or their own IP. They had amazing ideias for new IP back on GCN that were cancelled in favour of Metroid Prime. Whatever it is, since it's been worked on since November, we'll get a glimpse of it at E3.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

The first Nintendo DS game with Wi-Fi capabilities came in 2005. The first Wii game with Wi-Fi capabilities came in 2007. So, that's almost 9 years for DS and 7 for Wii. They've had a pretty good run. Why are people freaking out on this? And more interestingly why do I feel that the people complaining the most about it's demise, are the people who always hated on Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to begin with?

Samurai_Goroh commented on Nintendo Releasing a Wii Sports Club Wii U Har...:

I expect when all five sports are released, they release a disc version of Wii Sports Club, and maybe put it in some Basic Packs with Wii Remote Plus and Nunchuk to move them. They'll have to get rid of the Basic eventually to focus on the 32 GB model and this could be the best way to give the console a boost and get rid of unwanted stock. Then, hopefully, we might start seeing some 64 GB models.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Remake Request: Virtua Fighter 2:

Virtua Fighter is my best recollection of the SEGA Saturn. Saturn would be awesome on Wii U VC. I missed quite some of its gems. I only played Saturn long past it's tenure, borrowed from a friend, after experiencing far better graphics on the Nintendo 64 and the Dreamcast, Saturn designated successor. I found the "blocky cubes" graphics quite cute. I didn't know much about these technicalities, just enjoyed the games.

@URAmk2 So, you take the word of Ubisoft, who is trying to sell you the game (no conflict of interest whatsoever, lol) as gospel, and disregard the presumably unbiased critics, in this case, Digital Foundry?
Ok, then. Nice to meet you. I have a bridge you'll want to buy.

€35 is not too much of a deal. I can track down a retail copy cheaper than that if I really wanted it. The timing of it, to coincide with the Winter Olympics starting this Saturday is well thought, but the price is still way too high.

PS: Amazon has it for sale at £20, roughly €25.

Last year Iwata promised us N64 and GBA on Wii U VC. This year he promisses us DS, which is fine and dandy, but still no word on N64 and GBA.
I really like Satoru Iwata, but he needs to start delivering stuff before making more hollow promises.
Also, on 3DS you can play the original DS carts so I don't see the appeal of having it there. Physical for life, baby! You're better off that way, so many great DS games that will not make the cut for Wii U and you can buy cheap for your handheld. GBA, on another hand should really be available on 3DS eShop. With Wii U cross-buy, Iwata.

I wouldn't put much hope on Pokémon games on Virtual Console. None of the Game Boy games made it to the 3DS. Nintendo seems to be reluctant in selling us what would be a single-player only experience of Pokémon without the possibility to connect to friends. What I would like them to do at least on 3DS is to do like SEGA and make wireless conectivity do the job of the Link cable.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

This is like asking if the Wii would have been a success without the Wii Remote.
I wasn't too fond of the GamePad too till I spent some time playing with it. Now, I love this controller. Playing is believing people, give it a week in your household and tell me you want to go back.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

I love Ubisoft. They're currently my favourite 3rd party and I appreciate the effort they've been putting on Wii U games. I love ZombiU and Rayman Legends. I actually wasn't mad at them for delaying Rayman Legends, as long as I could play it on the original console it was intended, which I did.
I understand that from a business standpoint they may want to refrain from further releases on Wii U. I just don't understand that they cancel a game they announced for a specific platform months ago. I view an announcement as a commitment by the publisher, and it has to deliver on it's word. Otherwise, were talking about lying to their costumers, which I do not take kindly. I am sooo unreasonable, right.

Is EA making any games for Nintendo consoles? I mean, I know they're not making anything for Wii U, are there any games from them for 3DS at least? What is this great business relationship if they don't bother releasing their products on any Nintendo platform?

Samurai_Goroh commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

I want to play this game. Ubisoft has been one of my favourite developers on Wii U, Rayman Legends and ZombiU are amazing games.
I'm fine if they don't want to bring future unannounced titles to the Wii U, but this one was confirmed time and time again. They created expectations. Hope this isn't true, if it is though, I won't ever buy anything made by Ubisoft. Ever.

Samurai_Goroh commented on Activision Confirms Cut the Rope: Triple Treat...:

I remember playing this game for free on my web browser. It was a showcase of Internet Explorer HTML5 capabilities. I remember playing Angry Birds for free on my web browser, too. It was a showcase for Chrome Web Apps.
So, why on God's green earth would I pay full price for something that is free?
