Samwise7 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

@JaxonH Being old enough to have played them all from the start as they came out (I was a child for the first few though) I have to say Skyward Sword and A Link to the Past are the best. SS blew me away at times with the game's design, emotion and sheer beauty as well as the enormous fun factor. A Link to The Past is so big and I was so excited for A Link Between Worlds and although it's an incredible, 5 star game... it's just too easy and just felt a bit smaller in scope. The storyline however was amazing. I just think SS is the pinnacle of the Zelda's and gets waaay too much stick when in fact it's so gorgeous and so moreish, I wasn't bored once. Amazing game.

@Zergling Nintendo will be dead to you if they release the game as all inclusive to people with alternative sexualities? Hmm probably not the type of customer anybody really wants then. People get fired in businesses across the globe for saying less and rightly so.

@DiscoGentleman I agree, also as a gay man it does just seem out of place. So much so I wondered what LGBT stood for in this instance! Just tacked on as some kind of 'industry'. Ah well, I ain't complaining but really its just about equality and not trying to squeeze cash out of particular group of people in a cringe-worthy fashion. Lets just wait and see what Atari means by that.

Samwise7 commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for E3 2014:

My wishlist is thus:
Epic new massive Fire Emblem for the Wii U
New Metroid adventure for the Wii U
2D Metroid for the 3DS (like A Link Between Worlds did for Zelda)
Super Mario Galaxy 3 for Wii U
New Mega Man for 3DS
2D Kid Icarus new adventure for 3DS or massive sprawling one for the Wii U
New Golden Axe for the Wii U from Sega
New Shining Force for the 3DS from Sega
New Actraiser...OK now I'm just being unrealistic but that would be awesome in Wii U!

Samwise7 commented on Weirdness: When PR Stunts Go Wrong - Watch Dogs:

As someone who has worked in game PR I do find this amusing. Not the trouble it caused but the general brainstrorming session that it oroginated from where they all thought it was a genius idea...if only they got the guys number right and left a voicemail or at least made sure the pin worked. Classic PR stupidity. Love it.

Samwise7 commented on 3D Gaming is Very Much A Part of Nintendo's Fu...:

@Ronoh But surely that negates the point of the 3DS? It's popularity is of course mainly down to the games but the 3D effects used in those games enhance them and developers know that. Otherwise it's just a DS with better graphics and processor etc. I believe Nintendo that 3D is important to them, the 2DS is simply a way to sell more machines and more of the already existing canon of 3DS games to younger or less gaming market.

Clearly this is for kids, just by the look of it. With all the crap flying about about 3D being 'bad for your eyes' this is a simple way for under 10s to play 3DS games (ie sell more). 3D is not a gimmick at all and I never take it off. Some of the effects on Fire Emblem are awesome and its clear Link Between Worlds is utilising it excellently as well. Fret not 3D gamers, this is simply a marketing tool to get young'uns to get on the Nintendo ride early.
