What's with your disrespectful tone?
While what this person made is quite amazing technically, I have a sense of aesthetics which may more often be a curse than a benefit. Because of that, the the amount of deformation of the original G&W graphics make me unable to appreciate this anywhere near as much as the originals.

It doesn't hurt me one bit that he didn't make this for me and I knew that well enough already. If anything bothers me, it's what I already explained as well as the fact that someone got so upset because I stated my opinion. Take it easy.



Siskan commented on Nintendo Begins Takedown Proceedings on Super ...:

I don't think this is a pity at all. I get that people want free access to these kinds of things, but this does more harm than some of you may think.

And the creator won't really grow until he creates something of his own. In the long run this should be the best for him too. And as pointed out earlier, the assets were even ripped from other official games.



Siskan commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

Can't say I have any idea. But unlike a lot of people I'm happy that Nintendo is still trying to innovate. Because just like Iwata said, simply expanding upon existing hardware is rather dull.

If the phone business worked the same as the console business, we'd still only be able to use our mobile phones to make phone calls.
While I'm not asking for new non-game related functions for the NX, this still says a lot. Consoles have entirely different opportunities to add things which affect gaming itself. So that's the field where I want to see new functions.



Siskan commented on First Impressions: We're Really Feeling It Wit...:

I have to say these graphics aren't well suited for the 3DS. It suffers from the low resolution in a way that most games built for the 3DS from the beginning don't.

After yesterday's presentation I'm now kind of disappointed there will be a a 3DS version of this, as it makes it unlikely that we will see this title as one of the Wii downloads on Wii U. Considering how games with classic controller support can now be played with the GamePad buttons, this would have been a perfect fit.



Siskan commented on Guide: New Nintendo 3DS - Everything We Know S...:

I will buy the new model in December when I go to Japan.
So I have a question about the mature content. Does this include game software as well? I doubt a non-Japanese credit card would work in this case.

Also if mature content does apply to game ratings, I also wonder which ones. I have only owned one 18+ rated game in my entire life (despite the fact I'm 22), as I simply don't enjoy ridiculously violent games, nor do I play erotic ones. But I'm wondering if 16+ (or whatever CERO rating is the closest) is considered mature as well, since I play plenty of those.



Siskan commented on Masahiro Sakurai Outlines the Challenges of De...:

I thought it was a rather good metaphor actually. And I fully agree.
If I may continue, just like that mustardless bite was ruined, the match where the bug occured would be as well. So even if a game or sandwhich can be fixed afterwards, one experience has already been ruined.
This may be even worse in an RPG etc. where you may lose hours of progress since your last save, or even make a whole save file useless.
I guess this is where you try to assemble a model kit, just to find out there were some defect parts and you need to start over with a replacement?

I know there have been such bugs in Nintendo games too, but they seem rare. If I remember correctly, Skyward Sword was one example? But it's surely a lot harder to blame them when they put this much work on trying to avoid these things. Though I suppose some people would see it differently and say there is no excuse after spending that much time on it. But you can't deny the fact they tried.
