ShortSleevedNook commented on NIS America Confirms Rodea the Sky Soldier Delay:

I would not recommend the 3DS version, tbh. I've played it and...well, it's visually very disappointing. You might think, "Well, obviously, cuz it's 3DS", but seriously, it looks like they shoved the Wii version onto the 3DS without optimizing it much for the handheld and then just released it. Low framerate, trashy graphics, and overall just a disappointing port. The game still plays decently well, but I would definitely stick with the home console version if you can.

ShortSleevedNook commented on Nintendo TVii Service Ends In North America On...:

TVii was trash: the app only ever worked half the time. It was slow, laggy, and aesthetically unappealing. Appreciated the concept a lot (it was a brilliant idea) but the execution was a mess.

Why even allow it in Canada if you weren't going to include the NHL in the sports section?? Overall I felt TVii was underfunded and underdeveloped; not meant to be anything more than a tech demo, and even in future updates the app never got much better.

@Ralizah Morally, I would never find myself playing a game like this (although I certainly see the appeal), but your first comment has a lot of great points to it. It helps put into perspective that there are many other great things about Senran Kagura that are hard to notice when such a big fuss is made only about the fan-service. Well said!

Same sort of stuff was happening over at SEGA of America, minus the racism. All industries have incidents like this, so it's unsurprising to hear about it, but I really wish that NST got back on track to making bigger games! I loved MP Hunters, and those sports games looked awesome!
Also, while I usually agree with Japanese development more than I do American development, I'm on the Americans' side of this argument Environments?? Are you kidding me??

Virtual Console is nothing but a nice little extra for Nintendo fans. I view it as a way to get more content onto the consoles. It's completely optional, and if you really want to play the old games, you're WAY better off just buying the original consoles and games.

I think it was good for them to focus on recent software. The fact is that the games all look great, it's just that they're reusing many of the same engines from previous games, so nothing really seemed "original". In terms of content, Nintendo is killing it! So much on 3DS this year and next!

They had a demo of it on the Japanese eShop recently. I played it, and it's actually a pretty fun game. I'm a little bit unsure about the production value: it seems like they took sprites from the DS and they've barely dealt with the 3D effect either, but pure fun imo. You can switch between 3 characters using the touch screen! It was pretty cool.

Personally, I say if you're going to release a game on a modern console, remaster it. If not, buy it on the original console. But then again, there has to be a cheaper way of being introduced to those older games. Amiibo tap and Smash Bros are cool ways of doing this, and I think Club Nintendo was interesting too, but I would much rather see an arcade service or something that allowed Nintendo players to play these old games as if they were in an arcade: just to try them out. Maybe there could be a cheap, 24-hour fee or something like that. I'm saying this mostly from the perspective of a guy who prefers to buy the original consoles and games, although I totally understand that it is super nice to be able to play these games on HD TVs on Wii U: for old consoles, you need an old CRT television (although old games look great on them )

In one sense, it's not like demos are really necessary for Nintendo's really bit retail titles. You don't need a demo for the latest Mario Kart or Smash Bros, because you pretty much know what to expect.

In another sense, this is precisely why I think Nintendo could benefit from more demos. As a consumer, I want to know why I should buy, for example, Mario Kart 8 when i already have Mario Kart Wii and MK7. Playing a demo would not only get me fired up to play it, but might entice me to buy it!

I don't really care for VC. I used to, but the libraries are incomplete and I don't feel complete ownership of the original titles with these cheap downloadable copies. They have their benefits, and they do lots of good for some, I understand, but even though it's far more expensive, I prefer gettin the original consoles, games and controllers. More nostalgia, and I feel like I actually own the game more.

That and owning the game on a retro system is WAY cooler!
