Samwise7 commented on Nintendo Further Explains Fire Emblem Fates Lo...:

As a gay gamer myself, I welcome the option to marry a guy as I wanted to do that in Awakenings. Well done Nintendo for this and I'm just glad that the people who don't 'agree' with it, despite it being nothing to do with them, now have no choice but to co-exist... like in real life. The other option being don't buy the game.. or cut off your nose to spite your face while you're at it. It's not the gay militia/liberals pushing it, it's life, and I'm so glad 99% of the people on here get that.

Samwise7 commented on Feature: Five Key Reveals and Releases That Wi...:

NX has to come out fighting with Nintendo satisfying everyone who's been disappointed this year, they have SUCH a strong arsenal. Off the top of my head:
Zelda U/NX for sure
Super Mario Galaxy 3/Super Mario 3D World 2
Backward compatibility and crazy new content for Super Mario Maker
Mario Kart 9
F Zero NX
Kid Icarus - sideways shooter, 3D adventure, platformer, SO much potential
Metroid 5 of course. Back to basics and HUGE
Splatoon 2
Pokemon World
Advance Wars 2
Fire Emblem for the NX
Balloon Fight!!

And get the other guys in there as well with exclusives that would fit so perfectly:
Castlevania (Simon Belmont should have been in SSB!) - proper sequel, huge again and stunning with music to match like Super Castlevania.
UN Squadron!!
Contra!!
There's so much, if even half of that came off they would have won before the race even started and that's without getting the latest 3rd party guys on board.

I've over excited myself I need to lie down lol.

@Elijah_and_Lisa What an adorable story, you look like such a fantastic couple and completely genuine. Congratulations! Keep us posted on the wedding and I've forwarded your story to the Nintendo PR who I know. In a world where all we hear about are negative stories day by day, here is something positive and wonderful and all thanks to Nintendo! Thanks for sharing guys.

Samwise7 commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Reader Award...:

I hate to say this but I just can't get into Majora's Mask!! I have played each and every Zelda to completion and got the 3DS version when it came out. I have tried loads of times but keep coming up against irritating barriers. Am I missing something? Have done the first 'dungeon' but I'm still not rally drawn in. And the time thing does my head in as well!

Samwise7 commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

@JaxonH @ikki5 I'm talking about the changes to the game written about in this news article, one of which is giving the young teenage character slightly more to wear in one particular outfit which is the right thing to do.

As for the slider, I agree that the avatar representation should be left alone but I guarantee there would be nothing like this amount of comments here if it was to so with the removal a slider for the size of the male avatar's package. I think it's a shame you can't alter both as that would be the happy medium. Or large.

Samwise7 commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

@Samwise7 Ok yes I get your point, as the size of a woman's breasts is irrelevant in this game and certainly shouldn't be viewed as obscene. I think their point is that it's just not necessary. I don't like censorship at all and the game should be presented as the creator intended, but I just think maybe the intention wasn't the best in the first place as there is so such option for the male characters. I stand by my point about a bikini and the possibility of large breasts on a 13 year though. Stick to the adults.

@Yorumi I wasn't aware of that but again it's to create a cool character who you want to play as, not necessarily one who looks like you or else you wouldn't choose to create an avatar of the opposite sex. I always used to play as Chun Li back in the day but cos I thought she was cool. I agree with any and all customisation just make it equal to both sexes and don't make it inappropriate for child characters as that's plain old creepy.

Samwise7 commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

@heyzeus002 Exactly, have none or both. Anyone who has seen some of the slightly disturbing Japanese anime school girls in various 'situations' will know that there's something off about having a 13 year old girl in a bikini and being able to give her large breasts. It has nothing to do with the game and while I think the more customisation the better, just do it appropriately and equally. Changing the size of a man's pecks does not equate to changing the size of a woman's breasts. And with customisation, you don't have all these options to have them look like you! There would have to be a whole load of unattractive and overweight options if that was the case. 'Why have they removed the acne slider?' said no-one.

Samwise7 commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

@Mr_Rawky I completely agree. Having a 13 year old girl with massive breasts and a bikini isn't particularly nice or necessary. If there was a slider to decide whether your male character had a huge package then I would say yeah leave them both in but there isn't, which sort of means it's there for a different purpose. Personally, I'm gay so a big rack does nothing for me sexually but I'd still give my characters large breasts if I had the choice I expect. Make it equal or not at al I guess. And to be honest, just play the game, you won't even notice once you get going.

Samwise7 commented on Feature: The Unexpected Legacy of Wii Music:

@Shiryu It's totally amazing what you've achieved. The F-Zero and Secret of Mana soundtracks are my faves of all time so have listened to your stuff from start to finish. I'm a writer so it completely chills me out and inspires me at the same time when I work and listen. Cheers!

Samwise7 commented on Editorial: Satoru Iwata Embodied The Playful B...:

@ThomasBW84 What a brilliant and heartfelt piece, thank you for that. There was a sea change going on at Nintendo and Iwata-san was at the very heart of it. I think Shigeru Miyamoto will be the ultimate successor and someone who can further Iwata-san's vision and who knew everything that he was striving for. Both of these men changed the face of gaming and one half of that double team will be sorely missed. RIP Mr Iwata and thank you.

Samwise7 commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

I have to say that a game that is a mix of Uprising and the original would be amazing. The original music was brilliant and I liked the slowed down exploratory aspect of the dungeons. Definitely so much potential in this IP that they haven't really tapped into at all.

Samwise7 commented on Nintendo Ditches Plans To Create New Hardware ...:

I think they've missed a massive trick. They could have released the Wii with all their 1st party games, none of which need censoring, and made a shed load. Literally Nintendo consoles are the perfect fit. Sell them cheap, get a generation hooked. Job done. Billions made.

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.

Samwise7 commented on Atari's "Corporate Comeback Strategy" Includes...:

@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.

Samwise7 commented on Atari's "Corporate Comeback Strategy" Includes...:

@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.
