Samurairu commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (Europe):

@TheLastLugia I haven't played it, but I sound in the same boat as you. When I read up about it, it sounded like street passing is important to the game and that's why I passed on it as where I live, I only get street passes when I go to Japan.

Samurairu commented on The Miiverse Redesign Will Go Live on 29th July:

This change has nothing to do with the gamers and everything to do with Nintendo forcing the gamers to do nothing but advertise and promote their games for no compensation.

Glad I enjoyed MiiVerse when it started, but too bad I've lost touch with many interesting people due to Nintendo's mismanagement of it.

Like the cherry blossoms, the joy of MiiVerse was short and sweet.

Samurairu commented on Review: Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey in Suburb...:

@MitchVogel Just think about how fun it would be for training though. =) Actually getting paid to use this program. I was surprised when I tried the demo, because like I said, it's basically a copy of the training sim for new drivers. Of course in the training sim you sit in a virtual cockpit as well with physical controls, but everything else is the same.

Thank you for getting what I was saying and not taking offense to it, like so often happens on the internet. I just wanted to ensure the Japanophiles and Train otaku's weren't deterred from at least checking out the demo, because they didn't read your review carefully and only took away the negative part of your review.

Samurairu commented on Review: Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey in Suburb...:

Reviews are opinions. They are not meant to make your decisions for you and this is an example of this. This sim is nearly an exact replica of the train simulation used for training the drivers in Japan and you can try it if you're lucky when you're in Japan and go to the cool JR museum in Nagoya.

This game is for train fans. It's not for someone looking for a game, imo.

Samurairu commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

Thinking that video games is not about cutting edge tech is bizarre imo as tech gadgets are a space race of sorts. Who can be the first to.... I agree that cutting edge doesn't necessarily equal power, but 2.5+ year old hardware never competes with current gen in an evolution driven market. Cell phones are old tech, but no 2.5 year old cell phone can compete with the power of new cell phones from the same class. That's a fact.

All I know is that unless the NX can at the very least handle direct ports from all current gen hardware with no downgrades, I will not buy the system and this is one of those rare cases where I believe I'm in the majority.

Samurairu commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

I agree w/Mona-Reggie that software should be the focus, but I still find it very concerning if this is true because tech life cycles every 6 months or less, so the NX will be nearly 5 life cycles newer and there should be no excuse for it to be at least on par with hardware that is that much older.

If it isn't you're going to see similar issues with any non-exclusive games which have been developed for systems with much more hp.

We'll see, but I hope this rumour is bogus.

If this is true, then it's pathetic as the PS4 will be over 2.5 years older than the NX IF the NX is released in Jul of 16.

It's not about what's needed, it's about needing to keep within touch of current technology and if the NX isn't going to even be on par with 2.5 year old tech, then it's pretty much doomed to failure unless it has an unbelievable, must have gimmick which will suck in the masses.

@shani I get what you are saying, but I didn't have a post deleted, I was banned for 14 days with threat of being permanently banned. That's why I called them and wasted my time. There was no foundation or explanation of why it happened and I know my treatment is far from unique.

Samurairu commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

@shani Thank you for clarifying that. It's a touchy subject for me, because I wasted hours on the phone and through email with Nintendo of America and got nothing out of any of the reps I dealt with. It killed my fan feeling towards Nintendo, the last company I still had those feelings towards, so I fought for my rights and was treated like nothing by Nintendo and it's annoying, but I am like you in the MiiVerse doesn't mean much to me now, but it did at one time.

@shani So I'm a liar? I've been through this process so I can only conclude you're a troll who enjoys spreading lies and misinformation themselves to get some sort of perverse kicks out of it. Go back to MiiVerse and dwell among your brainless kind.

Samurairu commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

@Mona-Reggie That is crazy, but I can't even tell you what I was banned for. The admin cut and paste reason didn't apply and Nintendo wouldn't tell me or have the admin justify their actions.

Bottom line is that anyone who supports MiiVerse, supports authority that doesn't have to account for it's actions. Anyone who does that, is very foolish imo.

@night Unfortunately all we can do is not use MiiVerse and even more unfortunately, this further skews the community with people who don't get it until they are also banned.

I'm annoyed by this topic because as you can probably guess, I was banned. I called and emailed Nintendo for the entire 2 weeks and got no where except further insulted.

Be careful of who you friend is one piece of advice. I discovered a few of my 'friends' were troll reporting me for fun. I guess they have exciting lives. I've also resorted to keeping in touch with the people I really have fun with, through email etc.

I also delete older posts I've made so they can't be troll reported by people with nothing better to do.

@Phantom_R again, the words of an immature mind. Something that applies to you, does not apply to all.

I would guess that many who are banned deserve it, but those who are done so by overzealous admins feeding the reporting trolls have no way to defend themselves or over turn incorrect judgement.

Your statements only show your lack of experience of ability to listen to others. Suggesting that anyone who is banned deserves it? Unjustifiable authority loves easily manipulated people like you. Carry on.

@Phantom_R Spoken by someone who hasn't been adminned themselves? You're pretty comfy in your self righteous house on the hill.

Enjoy your time on MiiVerse until you get banned for no reason and then realize Nintendo does not care about you in the slightest.

Want to test it out? Why not post your miiverse handle in this thread and request for people to report you for no reason. It would take less than a month for you to be perma-banned.

@Barbiegurl777

Hi, I was being sarcastic, that's why I put sarcasm after the post. Nintendo has used this pathetic veil of them watching out for children as justification for some inappropriate ways they have treated me. This is their standard line they tow when you talk to them.

I personally think it's the parents job to watch their children, not mine, yours or Nintendo's. If that's too hard for them, maybe they shouldn't have had kids. We should all be able to make our own choices on unimportant issues like this and not be restricted by companies like Nintendo pretending to care for the children when it suits them.

Samurairu commented on Talking Point: The Limited Edition Battle With...:

The solution for the customer is simple, but no one is listening, reading or caring about the customer. Sell prior to manufacture and make to order. Why aren't they doing this? I'd guess they're making more money living off the scalpers. In the end, no company cares about their customers any more, it's all bottom line for shareholders and richie rich,

The only way to fix it, is to show some discipline as consumers and refuse to get sucked into believing a piece of plastic or digital code is somehow a finite resource to be valued.

Original language vs Dub should be a moot point.

Your personal preferences and cultural biases are valid points of view, but none of them will change others preferences or biases.

It's about choice and removing choice in something like this, is never good.

Let people choose what they want is the point.

No Japanese audio.... argh, I'm not sure I'm going to get this now. I cannot stand the English dub and the Japanese audio was one of the things which drew me to this game.

Just get rid of region locking so the choice is back in the gamers hands vs some executive who only cares about keeping things easy.

Would the story about the kid be just as touching if the kid in the story was replaced by a 30 something, unshaven guy who still lives in his parents basement and really wanted that amiibo because they truly enjoy it as a pure fan? Maybe that guy got screwed out of the last one at Walmart because they were holding it for some kid. Good stories are always tainted by closed minded tunnel vision.

Samurairu commented on Video: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Visuals Stand U...:

I don't know about everyone else, but when I'm playing a game, I don't pause it to check out the detail, so these side by sides do nothing for me. I do sometimes notice poor graphics for a brief moment, but if the game is good... it's brief. Then it's time to play. This is one of my favourite games of all time and the first game EVER that I will buy another copy of.

I'm just surprised and disappointed you can't preload it on the eshop.

Miniaturization costs are the only thing preventing this from being a reality. That is why I think the next console should be a hybrid where the docking station for your handheld connects it to more powerful hardware required for the higher resolutions of larger displays.

This is the first time I've heard the english voices in this game and it just makes me appreciate the game all that much more because I have the choice to listen to it how I prefer.

There is no reason why all games cannot be present the game in the original language with subtitles. Kudos to Nintendo for keeping it up with this series!

As for the amiibo support, I was surprised there is any amiibo support for this game, but it is a pleasant surprise. I hope there will be some in the new game as well.

I hate this user matching. I can understand some people may like it, but give us the option to keep our activity feeds for things we want. I want to see my friends posts, not some strangers and even basic functional issues on MiiVerse seem to often prevent me from seeing all my friends posts all the time.

Samurairu commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:

There are many differences between Japan and the rest of the world. Most of my preferences are better served in Japan. I was born, raised and currently live in NA, but find NA culture to be much more immature than most of the world and especially when compared to Japan. One are where Japan is very weak though, is understanding how to present themselves on the world stage. Lucky for them, that they just have to be themselves and many people in the world will like them.

All my opinions which have been developed through a fair amount of life experience.

@Haz I'm not completely delusional, it's understanding the US is treated the way it is, because it is the biggest consumer economy in the world and 10x bigger than Canada. It's just annoying how Canadians don't demand better than they get, that's all. Thank you for being understanding.

Samurairu commented on Week Three of the eShop Throwback Sale Goes Li...:

@Haz Oh, you're so right! I never bring that concept up because I haven't had anyone on the internet get it before. The concept of exchange rate is to be a consideration, but prices are set based on what the seller believes the market will bear. I think that's so right. Well put.

Whether the price is less than the US counterpart or not is of no concern, because my salary is the same, but it was frustrating that my buying power never went up on these products when Canadian dollar was high, but it's plummeting down now with no end in sight.
