TingLz commented on Review: Pokémon Rumble World (3DS eShop):

@TeeJay I don't understand the principle of opposing free-to-play. Explain how trying a game for free is essentially worse than playing a short demo for a $40-$60 game you have to pay upfront instead of small chunks.



TingLz commented on Best Buy Nabs Exclusive Splatoon Wii U Hardwar...:

I want to make something perfectly clear to everyone here. There is a difference between a constructive debate (about Nintendo, etc.), and an argument about how other users post. It is perfectly fine to disagree with one another, but not if it involves attacks to other users. If you don't like how someone posts, just ignore him/her and move on.



TingLz commented on Super Mario 64 HD Triggers Surge Of YouTube In...:

@EngieBengie Let me ask you something. Why does a fan project garner so many views...whereas let's plays and ads for actual Mario games get nothing? How is a fan project "free advertising"? Who is watching these fan projects? Why are they watching them? Is this really so straightforward?

@mjc0961 Fist off, look up copyright infringement. You misused the term completely. Second, how is this "fair use"? The authors of this software pulled assets directly from copyrighted games without any sort of change for the purpose of distribution to others. This is actually not fair use at all. Granted fair use is actually determined by judges as it differs from case to case, which does apply to your point about not being able to afford these cases. However, on that note, there is no guarantee of victory even if they do go to court.

Again, where is the free advertisement? Mario is a well known character already, so why does some fan project get so much attention when it's unofficial and has little to do with the series? On that note, how will this lead to sales...for a product that doesn't exist?



TingLz commented on Nintendo Highlights Increased US Hardware Sale...:

I'm not even sure why we're discussing the Dreamcast. It and the Wii U are not in the same position. The Dreamcast was doomed to fail because of Sega themselves, whereas the Wii U is not in that predicament.

You can keep throwing out the "it sold less than the Dreamcast" argument, but it means nothing. Nintendo is still doing well and profiting. Lastly, as faint pointed out, the Dreamcast only sold 10+ million because of its final run. Matter of fact, Sega was the failure, not the Dreamcast.



TingLz commented on Nintendo Highlights Increased US Hardware Sale...:

@ikki5 Funny you should mention the Dreamcast. It sold 10.6 million worldwide and the Wii U was at 9.2 million as of last December.

This year the Wii U may outsell the Dreamcast.

I should also point out that the "outsold" argument is a bit premature considering we don't have sales data for the Wii U during the same span as the Dreamcast. It could be a difference of less than 1 million, much smaller than everyone is assuming.



TingLz commented on The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Developers Talk ...:

@PvtOttobot (and everyone else) With all due respect, we ask that you not argue about religion here. This is not against your faith, but religious discussions here never end well.

I am fully aware of the content that BoI has, but this is still not the place for such discussions.

TingLz commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

@Geonjaha Well I guess it's a good thing they're not charging full price for both. You can download the other campaign for less than half the price.

Also, again folks, this is for Japan. They have said nothing about what they'll do in the western release.



TingLz commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

@Lizuka Except Pokemon has two versions for no reason other than to sell the game twice. Here we have two unique versions of one game with significantly different content. I consider the Pokemon versions a worse cash-grab

@SkywardLink98 Which brings up my final point: it's too early to judge. Some of gamers just look at this from one narrow point-of-view before considering all the details.



TingLz commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

Guess I'll have to mention more things here. Before you all jump to...nevermind. I'll tell you this much anyway:

1. The gameplay is actually different in both games. The white version is the "easier" path with more EXP to share and overall more streamlined and straightforward. The black version is the "harder" path with less EXP and a more difficult campaign overall.

2. Each version is said to have about as much content as FE: Awakening. Each version is therefore a complete game in itself.

Overall, I think this is a fair scheme. I don't mind paying $60ish for two games. Plus this is Japan only. The American Direct heavily hinted that it will be one game in the west, but we don't know the full details yet.



TingLz commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

@rjejr Well going back to your comment on why should anyone buy a Wii seem to forget that if they didn't already have a Wii U, then they wouldn't own all the games that are already released. That's a pretty good reason to buy a Wii U
