TruenoGT commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

This is disappointing given the aftermarket costs of many of Natsume's SNES classics. I understand picking the winning horse in the race, but there's something to be said for doing a solid for the hardcore folks. I can't imagine Nintendo wouldn't at least recoup their costs if games like Lufia 1, 2 and Pocky & Rocky SNES came to the Wii U and people would really appreciate it (well some people, not the endless line of internet complainers).



TruenoGT commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd April (North America):

If you haven't and are into music, give the KORG DS titles a shot, they are so cool. Get M01D if you just want to compose with pre-existing instruments, and get DSN-12 if you really want to experiment with sound generation and play with the 3D oscilloscope (which is awesome).

It's one thing to break copyright for the fun of sharing with friends, it's another to make money from it. People are making ad revenue because the content they're showing (i.e. Nintendo copyrighted material) has value. I don't believe copyright wild west is inevitable, and the industry (or society in general) has to do a better job educating people on the value of creative output, otherwise the race to the bottom will continue. Working in the creative industry also, I don't think most people understand how much copyright infringement and devaluing of creative output has affected the opportunities of creative businesses large AND small. I'm not worried about the remixers, distributors and collage makers on Youtube and elsewhere that use others work, I'm worried about the people making original content in the first place.



TruenoGT commented on Review: A-Train 3D: City Simulator (3DS eShop):

I fantasize about getting into this game, but I'm pretty intimidated. This would be awesome game to get into on a deserted island somewhere with no other distractions or games to play. I'd need to make a 3DS homescreen layout with ONLY this icon on it!



TruenoGT commented on ​New FAST Racing Neo Footage is Set to be Re...:

@Mandalore I was thinking the same exact thing regarding PS4. I figured there was also a (very slim) chance that Nintendo pulled a Dinosaur Planet and F-Zero'd it, but FAST is really nothing like F-Zero other than it's a futuristic racer. Hopefully Sony doesn't snatch it up and make into a Wipeout game! :)



TruenoGT commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

The first shooter I've been excited for since Metroid Prime 3, and first multiplayer shooter since Doom 3. I can't wait! Nintendo needs to market the heck out of this as it really appears to capitalize on every Wii U strength.



TruenoGT commented on Head Teachers in the UK Issue Warning to Paren...:

I'm only sort of kidding, but aren't these crass, ultraviolent games for kids anyway? Most adults I know don't enjoy the immature themes and tasteless romps of GTA, etc, as the lack of subtly, poor narratives and glorification of violence in most of these games generally appeals more broadly to younger people who may not know why it's odd to enjoy realistic and often senseless depictions of killing.

More on topic, I think a better solution would be to have classes for kids to understand this type of media and it's context in broader society. Censorship and blame never work, but education is generally a good bet.



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

I have so many games on my backlog, they could wait until 2018 to release it. I'm excited for it, but a delay is no worries for me. I don't think it'll be a system mover anyway, so more room for other games to take the spotlight.



TruenoGT commented on Satoru Iwata Defends Timing of DeNA Deal, Teas...:

They're darned if they do, darned if they don't. Classic Nintendo doesn't appear to be going anywhere for the foreseeable future, so let's see how it unfolds. Things may change, but as long as there's even a modest audience for traditional gaming experiences, companies will be here to serve them.



TruenoGT commented on 3DS Action Puzzler Pazuru Arrives On The Europ...:

It's always a red flag for me when non-Japanese developers have a Japanese name and a Japanese themed game. Maybe it should be equally annoying when Japanese developers use English words and western themes, but for some reason it's not.



TruenoGT commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

While there's been plenty of great games (for me at least), there feels like so much untapped potential for Wii U and the dual screen console concept. I hope that by the time NX takes shape, the Wii U's promise is better fulfilled even if the mass market hasn't supported it well. Either way, I don't doubt Nintendo's ability to at least capture our imagination with their next attempt.



TruenoGT commented on Rumour: Metal Gear Creator Hideo Kojima Is Lea...:

I don't know how Kojima can hate Nintendo when against all odds, there's a port of MGS3 (with tons of updates and unique features) on 3DS. I can't think of a less likely game to be made in the last several years. Konami's been phasing out of gaming relevancy for many years and this is just another sign. Glad Kojima can finally use his creativity to control his own destiny and can't wait to see his next move.



TruenoGT commented on Interview: Nintendo's Hiro Yamada On The Chall...:

@EarthboundBenjy I wonder this too, it seems like direct selection of techniques during battle would be ideal for touch (i.e. rather than cycling through to select). It might be that the fast pace of battles and necessity of constant camera control make repositioning one's hands to use the touchscreen impractical. Will be interesting to see how Wii U's X uses the gamepad's touchscreen.



TruenoGT commented on Satoru Iwata And DeNA CEO Isao Moriyasu Discus...:

Despite what some people think, Nintendo like to be challenged and they'll blaze their own trail rather than simply copy their rivals. I look forward to the hopefully positive impact they'll have on the often questionable mobile gaming scene.



TruenoGT commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:

NX featuring the all new POWER BOOT, bundled with Play Action Football 2017. You heard it here first!
Being serious, it's a little soon, but few things get me more excited than the prospect of what Nintendo may do next with hardware.



TruenoGT commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

I just hope an "NX platform" would also play Nintendo's smart device games as well. I'd hate to see them combine their dedicated gaming platforms just as they create a new split. Seems that including multi-touch capacitive screen (with active stylus) on the controller/handheld could support everything past and future.



TruenoGT commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

This development doesn't excite me, but Nintendo is rapidly losing relevance for a big part of the market and they have to do something. If they can find a way to serve and profit from the massive smartphone/tablet community without undermining the dedicated games market, then OK. If you look at the massive load of crap that is most of the smart device games market, Nintendo could potentially clean house by actually making quality software.



TruenoGT commented on Etrian Mystery Dungeon Just Misses Top Spot in...:

Looks like a Musou DQ game was a better move than a MMO DQ game. Really wonder what they'll do for the next traditional entry and where it'll appear. A few months ago, I would have said portable for sure (mobile, 3DS or Vita), but with how well DQ Heroes is doing, maybe it could end up being a PS4 game instead.



TruenoGT commented on New Nintendo 3DS XL Charging Cradle Goes Up fo...:

Also did people see you can also now order New XL alternate back covers? They always did for other units, but they even have the Zelda MM and Monster Hunter ones. You could have a pretty BA Iron Man 3DS XL if you put the gold back on a red 3DS! :)
