SCAR392 commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:

On one hand, we can say Nintendo was unable to make enough for planned preorders, OR Toys 'R Us shouldn't be taking preorders for more than what was expected to be shipped. It could be either of these scenarios.

My bet is that Toys 'R Us is the one that screwed up.

We still don't know why the patch was rejected, or when any of the patch work happened, so it's equally unfair to throw all the blame at Nintendo. For all we know, there might be a memory minimum for Nintendo to bother releasing a patch.

@Yorumi - I don't know. Developers just need to release things that work, period. Sometimes patches are inevitable, and this one isn't that major, honestly, but go look at Ubisofts Tetris Ultimate on PS4. I guess we live in patch world, now. It would help if we knew why NOA decined their patch.

I honestly don't care much for off-TV play, but it's great news for those who care. I only tried to play this game in off-TV mode, once, then I realized it the sound wasn't happening. I only use off-TV play during a rare occasion.

That's fine, but if we are talking competitively, then it literally makes more sense to play the newer games. Even Tekken Tag 2, which is the newest Tekken game, has questionable physics. That's why Tekken 7 is being made. I've seen the gameplay for Tekken 7, and I can already tell that the physics have gotten better by just looking at it. That's good news for people who want the most accurate gameplay.

My cousin hit me with the Wii remote within a week of Wii launch, while playing Wii Sports so I wasn't that surprised for what was to come. Then the HDTVs got broken, and my brother almost made it happen, but he caught the controller by the wrist strap by a stroke of luck and quick reflexs.

SCAR392 commented on Black Forest Games Confirms New Giana Sisters ...:

I enjoyed Twisted Dreams, actually. I got it on sale for $6, for owning Mighty Switch Force. I would keep my eye out for a sequel. The Director's Cut not coming to Wii U makes sense. It more about timing than anything, really. Wii U has had the game for like, over a year. The same thing is happening for Nano Assault Neo, for PS4, I think. It's not that big of a deal, because we already have a version of the game. It would be nice if they let us upgrade our versions as DLC, but that probably won't happen.

@Luffymcduck
Well, I'd say ledge grabbing the way it is now, is better. You could hog the ledge, but there is also a situation where when someone hogs the ledge in the older games, they are invulnerable for a short amount of time, so the possibility of recovery goes alot further down, even though it shouldn't necessarily be that way. Not only can you edge override, but you are vulnerable if you decide to hang on a ledge without being hit off, so the new mechanic actually does make alot more sense.

I wouldn't say Melee is a crap game, either, but it really is super outdated by comparison. Wavedashing was always practically a glitch. That's just not how games are intentionally designed, and we're talking improvements from 13 years to make the physics, hit boxes, and controls in general a lot much more accurate.

We wouldn't have SSB4 without Melee, so it deserves alot of credit, but that's about where it ends, because otherwise we might as well prefer Tekken on PS1 over any of the new Tekkens, when so much work has gone into making it substantially better for each entry.

I'm glad Namco is taking advantage of the amiibos, even if it is just costumes. The Pac-man, Mega Man, and Sonic amiibos will be so much more awesome if their respective companies use them for their own games.

I'm guessing that Namco has alot of freedom to use amiibo, so it makes sense why they would reap any sort of benefit from them, under the impression that the amiibo range is mostly, if not all of Nintendo's work.

SCAR392 commented on Nintendo Appeal Takes Tomita Technologies 3DS ...:

Honestly, this whole thing doesn't make any sense to me. Nintendo had the cameras made at a factory that presumably already has the rights to make the cameras. That is how I think it is supposed to work, anyway.

SCAR392 commented on Nintendo's New Response: Some amiibo "Likely" ...:

I'm pretty sure we already knew this. The rumor that they were discontinued a week or so after they came was the ridiculous. There just won't be much use for a Game & Watch, Duck Hunt, etc. amiibos that don't have any other game to use them for. I hope at least the Pac Man, Sonic, and Mega Man amiibos stick around. Namco, Sega, and Capcom could take take major advantage of those amiibos for their own software aside from Smash Bros, if they play their cards right.

SCAR392 commented on Actor Is Suing Nintendo After Suffering Heart ...:

It does seem like it's mainly his fault. If he really didn't get breaks, an assistant, and some form of cooling like he asked for, then that's definitely Nintendo's fault, but otherwise it seems like he had a weak heart or something.

SCAR392 commented on Wii U YouTube Application Receives An Update, ...:

I think the main difference between the browser and app, is screen resolution. I think the app can run content in 1080p, while the browser is 720p. I haven't had any problems with the app, except the annoying activate device that happens after updates.

SCAR392 commented on Digital Foundry Gives Its Take on Watch Dogs f...:

So I guess this confirms that the game didn't run particularly well on any of the systems. Honestly, though, I think the bigger deal is the game itself. People were saying that Splintercell wasn't all that technically great on Wii U either, and that game was totally worth $20. I'd be willing to bet this is basically the same type of comparison. If Ubisoft can't get Watch Dogs to run in 720p on Wii U, that is 100% their fault. I couldn't really care less.

SCAR392 commented on Anniversary: The Nintendo DS is Now 10 Years Old:

I got it the day after Christmas, 10 years ago. I was so hyped to play the Metroid Prime: First Hunt demo and Super Mario 64 DS. Having 3D graphics on the go was such a huge jump, back then. Everybody said PSP would destroy it, but then it ended up not having as many games, it was a lot more expensive, memory card prices were ridiculous, etc.

Wifi gaming was also a huge deal.

I don't even bother with listening to things, on the go. If I really wanted to listen to something, I would do it on my home theater system. Headphones can't compete with a home setup. You can still hook up your portable device via headphone jack, bluetooth, or Air Play. I don't care about Apple, though.

SCAR392 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

@Vineleaf - You are very right, except that they were actually charging less than what it cost to make PS3. HDMI, having a full PS2 in there, Linux, etc was very expensive at the time. It cost them like over $800, IIRC, to make the thing, then their arrogance thought people would pay $600, in hopes of selling alot of software.
Sony basically burnt a ton of money, especially once they had to drop the price. They just couldn't compete with Xbox 360's price and more accessible hardware.

EDIT; It was ambitious, yet arrogant. It's like the story of Icarus flying too close to the sun, but surviving. PS4 is a different story.

@DarkKirby
That's why New 3DS is going to be a thing, so Nintendo can have some more powerful hardware in there. The New 3DS will also have DLNA PC data management, 3D visual tracking, and NFC. That means PS Vita still doesn't have some of the stuff New 3DS will have, or we can go to 3DS and still have 3D or SD cards. Sony isn't offering that stuff, and it matters to people, It's the same reason why people are choosing Android over iPhone, except in the this case, Nintendo is actually doing better, which is why they can make New 3DS a thing, in the first place.

Also. Wii U is supposed to appeal to everyone. Alot of people are saying that either "hardcore" Nintendo fans are buying it, or that it appeals to casuals. It can't be both, or either, because people saying either one contradicts the other opinion.

He can think whatever he wants. That still isn't going to change how an individual feels about any of them. I feel like Wii U has more worthwhile games than PS4, so that's why I have it over that. There's just some stuff you can't get on PS4, and it's basically like 70% of the Wii U's library.

I was under the impression that SketchPad would be updated, or that you would buy the other features as DLC. The options that are in this upcoming full release are in SketchPad, but it says "Coming Soon". Anyone who has it knows what I'm talking about.

Majora's Mask is a good move. A lot of 3DS players probably haven't played it, so now is the chance to play an enhanced version, and not everyone is willing to search out an older cartridge. Having alot of Zelda games available on 3DS is a good thing.

@element187
Actually, I think they said it would be 1080p and 60FPS on Xbox One and PS4. The real deal breaker was that they delayed basically everything, ditched Xbox 360 and PS3 in exchange for Xbox One and PS4(which is actually a good thing thing for Wii U, but bad for 7th gen), and during that, Xbox One and PS4 gained priority from the already existing PC build, because x86. Developers are trying to get their s*** together, for sure.
