300 characters or less? George R. R. Martin didn't settle for that stuff, and neither will I! Consequently, the rest of this section will consist of the words "THE HEROES THE HEROES THE HEROES AND VILLAINS" spammed continuously until the cap is reached. Wait, I ran out of space already? CURSE YOU...

I thoroughly enjoyed it. The only really big issue I have is with the seeming randomness of the map selection. During the last testfire window, I only got to play the warehouse level, which is approximately fifteen point eight times better than the alternative, once. During the first session, the alternation was at a comparatively healthy, agreeable level.

I say let 'em, before they inevitably ruin Metal Gear without the aid of Kojima's guiding hand. They literally release nothing else of value these days.

...Of course, this doesn't eliminate the possibility of whomever picks up the IP to ruin it, but at least it won't be by its procreator's hand. Sins of the Father...

You can't spell MOTHER 3 without E and 3. Make it happen this year 'tendo.

Epic Mickey is one of my biggest personal letdowns of all time. And I've played Final Fantasy XII here, guys! That right there shoul tell you something! Awesome idea on paper; horrible execution that killed my interest within an hour.

Eh, don't be so glum mister archivist person. Chances are that one person in the project's inevitable cult following of less than a thousand people will take it upon themselves to complete your mission without permission and a serious quality dip in informativeness and presentation. Because that's what's happened with every unfinished thing ever.

Twin Snakes and Twilight Princess HD is all I need.

Sunshine needs a heck of a lot more than a fresh coat of paint to avoid my growing tired of it some 30 Shines in, which always happens when I feel charitable enough to give it another try. A better 100% completion reward than "Have a relaxing vacation, you're gonna need it after wasting hours of your life" would be a start.

Don't get "disappointed" with Nintendo if the leak(s) don't turn out to be true. You've every right to be disappointed for its own sake if it turns out to be a lackluster Direct, but don't blame Nintendo for something they had nothing to do with. And you can't blame them for not announcing something as awesome as the overly optimistic leaks, either.

The N64 games, despite their trail-blazing customization options, are clunky and horrible to play today. Licensed wrestling games peaked with Shut Your Mouth. It's probably no coincidence that the games' decline followed that of pro wrestling.



Solid_Stannis commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

If this announcement would have been made this time last year, I would've been severely disappointed and ranting like the overly entitled jerk I try not to be. Others are doing a much better job at that than I anyway.

But, seeing as how 2015 is otherwise turning out to be the best game year in roughly a decade (mostly for Sony) I'll just take it on the chin. Take your time, Nintendo. No chance of it beating the best of the Zelda series (which has technically already been released this year) but it has as much potential as any to make for a decent number two.

Keep it real, Ninty.



Solid_Stannis commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

I'm still pulling for Nintendo to make Link's gender customizable in the upcoming title and titles to follow. Not because of any political or social ideology or whatever, it just seems to me that if Nintendo truly want Link to be the "link to the player," the choice should be available for anyone who wishes.

And aside from a few games, Link's gender is pretty much immaterial anyways.



Solid_Stannis commented on Interplay Is Remastering Cult SNES Brawler Cla...:

Heh, everyone always disses ClayFighter whenever it's mentioned in any size, shape or form, often by people who haven't even played any of the games. Oh well. The original game, while a pretty fresh memory from my childhood, is pretty floaty and dull. Dunno if I'll even bother, even with my nostalgia.

The N64 version (not the butchered Blockbuster rental version), however, is still pretty slick and action-packed to this day, with an awesome combo system that was pretty much the last hurrah for that kind of combo gameplay. I'd pick up a remastered version of that in a snap. Let's hope that it'll appear somewhere down the road.

Also hope Interplay (or, Interclay?) have got some plans to re-release the platformer Claymates for the SNES, because that was a pretty sweet and original platformr that nobody ever seems to talk about these days.



Solid_Stannis commented on Feature: A Celebration of HAL Laboratory - For...:

Just like Nintendo, though they may not be as guaranteed to hit it out of the park as some twenty-odd years ago, they've always maintained that spirit of fun and experimentation that makes games like Dream Land 2 as fresh and exciting as games of today.



Solid_Stannis commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

Okay, so here's my theory: the cartoon and the CD-i games were intentionally made as warts on the proverbial posterior of the Zelda franchise so it would get people like me thinking that "Hey, it couldn't be any worse than that horrible cartoon and the cancerous CD-i games, right?"

...And, dagnabbit, it worked. DAGNABBIT, I TELLS YA!



Solid_Stannis commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

But yes, to continue on from my previous post, this is unfortunately where Nintendo have to lower themselves to dealing with so-called "content creators" for the sake of avoiding negative impaction to business. I don't have to like it, but that's the way it goes when public influence is handed to the entitled. Game Theory was right on the money with the "word of loudmouth" theorem.

It may be akin to supporting criminal behaviour, but in the long run it's just not worth the potential damage it could cause to your brand name. It's sure a complex world we live in.



Solid_Stannis commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

So, the internet's entitlement epidemic has gotten a spokesperson. It had to happen, I guess. If something you make is derivative of someone else's intellectual property, you should count yourself lucky to earn even dollar one. The IP owner has every right to cut in on any profit thereof.

Aside from being probably the most punchable face on the planet, Mr. Pie is obviously doing this just to cause a stir since (thankfully) he's stayed far away from Nintendo long before this ever happened. I guess having to recalculate his budget so he can still afford those charitable donations of his that are totally irrefutable proof that he is a saint among men, is a bit of a downer.

@whodatninja That's not even funny. Anyone who hates something and then makes it their mission to surround themselves with that thing obviously has a fair few mental disorders. It doesn't make sense to anybody.

Use your brain next time you try to be an insufferable internet snark for no reason at all.
