SpookyMeths commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

I really don't think N64-style graphics are something anyone should strive for these days. It was Nintendo's first steps with 3D polygons and they've aged horribly. They look worse than the sprite graphics of SNES games.

That said, the video is pretty bad, but it's pre-alpha, so I don't want to be too disparaging.

For anyone wondering, the card "Set #1" came with Persona 4 Arena Ultimax. The cards are pretty large too, much larger than a standard playing card. The size difference with the 3DS case in the second pic is probably about accurate. They're quite nice.

Maybe not Zelda, but I'd definitely be interested in seeing Mr. Aonuma direct an open world futuristic action/adventure game with motorcycles.

Since finishing Deus Ex: Human Revolution, I've been waiting to see another great game with a neo-noir, cyberpunk feel.

SpookyMeths commented on New Nintendo 3DS LL Outsells Standard Model By...:

So what I'm reading is that this week the 3DS sold around 235,000 units in Japan this weekend (not including old models, which probably sold an insignificant amount).

That's more than PS4s sold worldwide all last week by a fairly wide margin.

It also sold almost as well as the DSi launch in Japan (274k vs 233k). That's pretty significant.

I can't get over how much this has expanded on those side missions from SM3DW. Everyone was questioning if this was a cheaper $20-30 title when it was first revealed, but now it just looks like it's bursting with content with fantastic level and gameplay design.

SpookyMeths commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

This is a little misleading. The won't greenlight AAA sequels if the predecessor didn't sell 2 million. That doesn't necessarily apply to Darkstalkers, Mega Man, Ace Attorney, or even Street Fighter. It really only applies to stuff like Resident Evil, DmC, Dragon's Dogma, or Azura's Wrath.

So this is pretty much non-news, as most studios won't greenlight sequels to AAA games that didn't sell 2 million.

SpookyMeths commented on Review: Red Riding Hood (Wii U eShop):

@ZeroZX_Dev I dunno if the cause is so noble... Every parent should read to their children. It's a huge part of not only the child's development, but the bonding between parent and child. I refuse to believe that there are parents who don't have 10 minutes to read to their kids every day, unless they have quintuplets or something. Some people are just too lazy and expect TV to raise their kids for them.

SpookyMeths commented on 3DS System Update 9.0.0-20 Is Now Live with Ho...:

Selection is a little weak right now, unless you only care about Mario, but I assume there will be much more in the future. Picked up the Zelda one for now. $2 is a decent price point. I imagine most people who do digital shopping on their 3DS have 2 bucks laying around on their account balance anyway, and it's cheap enough to entice impulse buying.

P4 is still fresh in my mind (did a playthrough last month), but man I feel like I'm going to have to dust off P3 sometime soon just so I can fully enjoy PQ. I feel like I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff. The names of about 4 of the main cast, for example...

@Rin-go Not necessary I suppose, but I had 20 seconds of free time, so I decided to post my thoughts on the update. I thought that was the general purpose of the comment section. Sorry my comment personally offended you and hurt your feelings. I had honestly not considered "gosh, I wonder what Rin-go will think of this" before posting, but I will keep that in mind from now on.

SpookyMeths commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

After a long, grueling 22 months for the 500 employees dedicated to the effort, the advent of FOLDERS is finally upon us. It was an arduous task, but Nintendo has done the unthinkable and implemented a UI feature that first appeared in Windows like 30 years ago. Praise be to Miyamoto.

SpookyMeths commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

Importing games is such a niche hobby that I doubt sales is the motivation. The extra few hundred units they ship in a console's lifetime really isn't worth it. Region-free importing obviously didn't save the Vita in the West, so there's no reason to believe it would help the 3DS much either.

While I think region-locking is pointless, I disagree with Mr. Ozaki's reasoning.

@Ash_Anne I played it for Vita, but yeah, the game kinda falls apart of you're not interested in the characters. The dungeon crawler style is pretty fun though, and the classes and creating your own party (literally...) is interesting. I wouldn't say it's worth $30 though. It's a good game for $20.

And XB1 is dead last in only its second week of launch. Looks like the baseline is going to settle under 1k, probably around 500 per week once the launch window is over.

Sony finally got around to announcing games that Japanese gamers actually care about for PS4, so I expect to see it sell great through the holidays, leaving the neck-to-neck race with the Wii U in the dust.

But yeah, the 3DS is a juggernaut.

SpookyMeths commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

Yeah, pretty much exactly what I expected. This one is for Warriors diehards over Zelda enthusiasts, but really not anyone else. Presentation issues and lack of polish are a little disappointing, but I doubt it will ruin the game for me. Content seems to be plentiful and I guess that's the most important part.

SpookyMeths commented on Feature: Meet The Unsung Pioneer Behind The Mo...:

Very interesting story there.

I think it was Patton Oswald who said something along the lines of, "I only want to be in the best movies and the worst movies. I'm in this business for two things, the money and the stories, and the worst movies always have the best stories behind them."

That's from memory, so I'm most likely misquoting him a little, but it feels relevant.

SpookyMeths commented on Pre-Orders Open For NES, Persona Q and Smash B...:

I would rather have the Persona one than the New 3DS, to be honest.

The Smash and NES ones are up on EBGames now (Canadian Gamestop outlet), but the Persona Q one is still missing. According to reddit, EBGames will be getting the Persona Q one in very limited supply.
