ThreadShadow commented on Video: Sheik Deals Death In Latest Hyrule Warr...:

I don't know. Using the harp as a weapon either magical or physically doesn't really work. Why not work with the actual weapons Nintendo has previously given Sheik, like the whip, and smoke bombs? The twin daggers are fine, but the harp is too much-as a weapon, imo.

So much for it being as fun as it should be. Being hogtied to NSMB physics is going to annoy me so much! The physics in NSMB is one of the things that annoys me about NSMB. I still like it but it's my least favorite Mario series. Why can't we have an option for physics?

@Einherjar Just a joke. It certainly was, as you said, the other way around. Ubisoft keeps dissing (is that still a term?) Nintendo and Nintendo gives them a trophy in Smash. Wha? Guess Nintendo is taking the high road, but not every character deserves to be in smash. Smash isn't PS Allstars.

@Damo I'd love to hear Wil Overton's take on the details of the characters and overall feel of the world etc.. If he thought that far, but having spent any time on the piece I'm sure he did and had names and relationship ideas for them all. Fun stuff. Nintendo should run with it and produce twelve episodes.

Yes, we need Directs to reveal Kid Icarus Wii U, F-Zero U-turn, Star Tropics 3, Pilot Wings Wii U, Metroid Wii U, and the next 3rd-party Zelda collaboration! Retro Studios, Next Level, Nintendo's collaborations/partnerships/acquisitions. A couple more new IPs. Some great 3DS announcements too. Not to forget the other previously multiplat third-party games Nintendo's fished out of the garbage.
I wonder what they could be. I know I'll be disappointed but I'd like to know. I wonder if it's Darksiders 3, Shenmue 3, 1666, or some other THQ leftover. What if it's Capcoms E.X. Troopers on 3DS?

I'd like a Harvest Moon that has graphics like Rage. I use the term loosely but "realistic" graphics. Mostly for kicks, but it would be hilarious to have dudebro Gears of War guys out there planting crops and courting the ladies! Not a post-apocalyptic world, mind you.

"a few Zelda titles in development" that sounds wonderful to me! I'd love to see Nintendo take this Hyrule Warriors thing further and develop a Hyrule sub series of LoZ games in co-operation with other third-parties. I'd like to see other third-parties get a chance- under the close supervision of Nintendo- to create 3D and 2D Zelda games.

Did anyone else catch this sentence from Miyamoto? "This term means that there is a large world in which players can do numerous things daily.". Numerous things daily? That sounds interesting. Daily challenges like in a Halo game, maybe?

ThreadShadow commented on Video: Lana Brings Some Deadly Magic to Hyrule...:

This new character is cute, but I hate the whole sorceress/magic book/magic circles stuff. It's possible that she takes away too much from what makes Zelda Zelda rather then add to it. It would have been better to develop Din, Farore, and Nayru, instead.

ThreadShadow commented on Princess Daisy Costume Confirmed For Bayonetta:

Just an FYI for anyone who cares. Bayonetta is not realistically proportioned either. I remember reading the designer saying Bayonetta was proportioned to look like/feel like a spider. Big rear-end, painfully long limbs, and tiny head.

She looks great, but is it just me or are her legs a little too short? Is she supposed to have Wind Waker stylized legs going on there?
Yes, we've all got magic circles, yawn, tired of magic circles.

Hoping we get TP Ganon as a playable.

I expect Sheik and Ganon to be playable. Tingle would be hilarious. There are other heroic characters from TP to use.

I'm still disappointed this isn't in the timeline somewhere. With all the references to Twilight Princess, maybe this is Twilight Princess in a different branch of the timeline? Or a sequel in the Twilight Princess branch?

ThreadShadow commented on Capcom Could Be Up For Sale After Shareholders...:

Having Nintendo buy Capcom or what ever sounds nice on paper, but when you dive into the logistics of it, it seems insurmountable in it's unsatisfactory resolution of IP management. Being a third-party Capcom has new and old games littered around the console landscape, and with a buy out these to some extent become Nintendo's problem. It all boils down to a big third-party head ache. Does Nintendo delist all Capcom games from digital stores? Does Nintendo leave them up to continue revenue on opponents consoles?

Capcom wants to make money and I feel they won't accept an exclusive buy out, they will choose a buy out option that allows them to remain third-party.

Evolve =interesting concept but will never get it.
Rise of the Tomb Raider Rises: Rise (uhg..Idk, I miss old TR Legend series.)
Destiny (it's hard not to be attracted to it, but the online turns me off.)
MGS V PP (so dark and grisly though, idk.)
Lovers in a Dangerous Space Time (awesome!), Cup Head, Bro Force (Idk, maybe.), Counter Spy (Idk, maybe.),Tengami, Cubemen 2, Nihilumbra (maybe.),Teslagrad, Two Brothers (maybe.), Wooden Sen Sey, A.N.N.E., Earthlock, Chariot, Affordable Space, Shovel Knight, Stealth inc. 2, Shantae games. Some other indies I can't recall right now.

ThreadShadow commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

They previously talked about new partnerships and acquisitions. I would have liked to hear something about that.
Zelda Wii U, Capt. Toad, Mario Maker, Hyrule Warriors, Yoshi, Projects, New IPs, Star Fox, and promises of new 2D and 3D Metroids were wonderful.
Would really like to know what Retro and other 2nd party developers are working on. Also a teaser from Sakaguchi would be cool.

ThreadShadow commented on Poll: Your Favourite Showing from Nintendo Dur...:

My favorite showing? How 'bout when Nintendo said, and I quote, "Dear Microsoft, Sony, EA, and Ubisoft. Your asses have been thoroughly kicked. Nintendo has won E3 2014. Please understand."

Zelda 2015, Hyrule Warriors, Mario Maker, Capt. Toad, various indies, Yoshi's Wooly World, and Star Fox announcement were all the stars of the show for me. It just needed two more announcements to really hit it out of the ball park for me. Something Metroid and something Retro Studios and/or another new IP would have been extra sweet.
Does anyone know if the multi-player pacmans are included in the new Pac Man Collection announced?

One of the best Double Dragons ever made. Every Double Dragon was made better when it arrived on the NES, yes even the first one, lack of two-players aside.

I'm not sure I agree with the idea of retro reviews any more. Reviewing it in it's day is one thing, but 20-30 years later after so much water has passed under the bridge...could be unfair and/or biased. I don't know...just thinking out loud here.

Mario Kart should always remain Mario exclusive. I whole-heartedly support the idea of a 'Nintendo Land Racing' game though. It should be a celebration of everything Nintendo just like Smash Bros, and just like Sonic Allstars Racing is a great celebration of everything Sega.

Calling it 'Nintendo Land Racing' would allow for all the different characters and would align it nicely with Nintendo Land, creating a Nintendo Land franchise/series that allows for mass cross overs etc.of Nintendo properties.

ThreadShadow commented on Weirdness: PeterMolydeux Is Back With The Stra...:

I'd say that's an unfair characterization of Iwata. In reality Miyamoto has made Link open more chests then he has. The hand-holding signs were enough. And I believe there is a person named Eiji Aonuma involved in the series somewhere.
In essence it could be argued that the "same old" Zelda gameplay fits right in with Halo's 30 seconds of play idea.
I don't quite get the ending. Link needs to be revived by Miyamoto? It was Miyamoto who put him on that path in the first place. It's a bit more ugly then poignant.
