TingLz commented on Talking Point: New Nintendo 3DS, Operation Fac...:

@Bazly I'm not the writer nor writing staff, but these are my responses anyway.

About the writing, you seem to have misplaced the order of the argument in the first place. If you read carefully, he started with "we understand fans' discouragement and think it's justified" and then he tried to explain possible explanations and logic for Nintendo's decision. From my perspective, he wrote equally on both sides trying to give both sides the benefit of the doubt.

Even in the conclusion, he mentions that fans are justified to have complaints for a lack of options. Now I'm not sure how this exactly favors Nintendo, but I suggest a reread before you make scathing accusations.

@ColdingLight

2. And the port strike was ALSO happening since November: http://www.cnbc.com/id/102208764. Matter of fact, it started around Smash's release date (though no specific date is mentioned)

3. If you do the transfer yourself, you would see how specific the instructions are. It literally tells you what to do and what not to do in each step.

4. Your memory is incorrect. Only a smaller percentage (~100) were actual Nintendo employees

@ColdingLight Okay, with all due respect, you can criticize Nintendo all you want, but you may want to fact check first a bit. Allow me to assist.

1. Nintendo of America operates with the same banks as NoE, so your notion about letting NoE localize "to cut corners" is a bit senseless. They are NOT separate companies, but rather handle operations in their regions while operating under the main umbrella in Japan. It would also be more believable if so many games weren't localized by the Treehouse anyway

2. The under stocks of amiibos is also attributed to the west coast strike, which I'm sure you took under consideration in your criticism.

3. Most horror stories were attributed to not following directions or losing an internet connection in the process, and I'm not quite sure why this is even a point to begin with

4. Most (about 190) of those employees were temporary leased workers who had little job security to begin with

It does seem like petty damage control, but heck, most will not be satisfied until they release the smaller model. I don't see why anyone even bothered asking why it didn't come to the States when no one will likely like the answer

TingLz commented on Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U):

@Quorthon I'm trying to make heads or tails of your comment...but I'll give it a shot.

Apparently you seem to think it's a terrible thing for people to be biased towards certain companies that they like. Now, if said companies were to usually produce high-quality (by matter of opinion) software, why would "fanboys" not think that the games are good? Matter of fact, how the heck is a 7/10 even an indicator for that matter?

Correct me if I am wrong, but I think his arguments are a counter to everyone who says the same thing about other games like Call of Duty and the gamers that play them. He's simply comparing them to Nintendo's own games, though a bit condescending in the process

Wow. I will throw my two cents in here.

@Quorthon: "Zelda games are signature Miyamoto--new graphics, possibly a gimmick built around a hardware feature and then the same story, same characters, same plot, same weapons, same items, same progression"

This is a completely hypocritical statement that you are giving. First off, there are quite a few Zeldas with different stories and characters. Heck only about 5-7 are constant if even that. Same plot is a bit redundant. Same progression? Okay, if you are looking at like 2 games out of the series, then sure. I can't say much about Call of Duty, but I do have a problem with you making an ironic statement that there are no changes when in fact there are.

And Wii U having only Mario and Zelda? Isn't that also an ironic statement considering it's false? I can see it being a counter against those who claim that PS4 and Xbox One have the same games, which in part is actually true. All the systems rely on many franchises to carry them with a handful of new IPs.
