Twilight_Crow commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

@Uro You really care that much about my opinion wow. I know what Miyamoto said, I used the term "open world" because other people used the term. But forget the term, they did point out to a very big world where you can ultimately go wherever you want. I am usually not fond of games with worlds like that, it's a matter of taste; but I didn't even say I didn't like the idea of that kind of world for Zelda, It looks it can be pretty good :), I am just not hyped. If they make a good game, I don't care how vast its world is.

@midnafanboy Yeah, open world, vast, huge, the point is too much space you can go to, I just rarely like that, thanks for understanding it.

Twilight_Crow commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

@midnafanboy I did feel joy when I saw the footage, it was so colorful and beautiful. I can understand hype beyond measure, specially for something that well crafted. I just don't feel it for any Nintendo game right now, and after the event I hadn't thought about the new Zelda anymore... I even forget about it until someone mentions it lol. :P

Maybe I am getting old indeed, or maybe games in general are turning away from the things I like and embracing things I don't care about, like open worlds.

Twilight_Crow commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

Hype? Really? Well, personally I don't feel the hype you are talking about. I felt hyped for MK8... and that's it. I liked what they did on E3, watched a lot of the Tree House content, and it really helped me decide what games were for me... but no hype. I do think they are doing better, maybe it is just not reaching me specifically. shrugs

I already saw enough footage of HW to know I want it, so I am not watching any more trailers or footage because "spoilers". I am in no hurry to get it though, I am not hyped. It will come out in a few months I will buy it and have fun with it, that's it.

Same with Smash, Bayo 2 and Captain Toad. Just bring the games as promised, and I'll get them when I have the money.

Twilight_Crow commented on Sonic Boom Release Dates Are Confirmed for Wii...:

I bet I will end up buying the WiiU version eventually, I can't resist Sonic games, and AAA games where you play as any other thing than humans are rare now a days... I miss those. How soon I buy it will depend on reviews and gameplay footage though.

Darn, I'd been watching Cosmo streaming for a while, I knew a new OOT Any% world record was around the corner. But I missed it. :'( Thank Celestia the stream was flawless, it was an awesome run. And now he will run Ganonless and one of my favorite categories All Dungeons, yay.

I also need to watch that Metroid Prime run, looks pretty cool. I really like speedruns! XD

Twilight_Crow commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

All Zeldas have its good things and bad things, and people have different tastes. And then we have nostalgia. So, there is no BEST Zelda. And, of course, they have changed and improved with technology, so if you want a completely objetive best Zelda, the list up there shouldn't include any older versión game until, let's say, WW.

But imo, if you want a Best Zelda, you should contemplate the impact the game had during the time it came out, then the list would include only the original titles, no remakes, or games with the exact same engine, they are better true, but they had not the same impact, because many people already know the games, and there is not real creation or innovation.

So I think the list should be: The Legend of Zelda, A Link to the Past, Link's Awakening, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword. Yes, as objective as I am trying to be I am human, and this is still only my opinion. Sorry if the amazing game that change your life is not there.

So based on my own experience not only with the games but also with other players at the time the games came out, I remember a lot of more fuss about Ocarina Of Time and Twilight Princess when they came out than any other Zelda. However I think A Link to the Past, even if not as talked about, won its rename through actual gameplay instead of hype.

Now we all have to agree that when it came to technology there are two games that excel: the original The Legend of Zelda that did incredible things with the little technology they had, and Ocarina of Time that gave the jump to 3D and left a such mark that many of its mechanics are still used in Zelda games to this day.

How much fun you got from each game is completely subjective, so, and because I bet the good times the game give to most of the people here is why they voted for the game, I'll use the poll above. At the moment, A Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask and Twilight Princess seem to be the most liked.

So, which is the best Zelda objectively? [Not Enough Data]

Oh, darn, whatever. This poll should be called Which is the most favorite Legend of Zelda Game anyway.

Personally, my favorite Zelda is Ocarina of Time, is it the best? Heck should I know, the thing has aged horribly, but is still fun as Tartarus. The 3D version is better obviously and if you want to pick a version you should pick that one (unless, like me, you don't like playing that specific game on a little screen, you take too much time and the 3DS runs out of battery and the circle pad sux[end rant]).

/me Voted for the original Ocarina of Time.

Twilight_Crow commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Sum...:

Hyrule Warriors all the way! Can't wait to play as Midna. :D I'm also gonna get Captain Toad and Bayonetta 2, I really don't mind how they give us Bayo1, it is a plus I wasn't even expecting, and I have the PS3 version (yes, is not the best, but it worked for me). And Affordable Space Adventures is a must buy too.

Will wait for the review of Sonic Boom. Getting 3D Sonic games is a guilty pleasure of mine but, I heard that playing it by yourself won't be worth, because it is multiplayer focused, and, if that is the case, I may simply pass.

Everything else on the list I doubt I'll buy. After watching several let's play of Watch_Dogs I know it's not for me; and sorry but I don't like car racing games, other than quirky, karty, cartoony ones, so I couldn't care less about Project CARS in any format.

...

... Oh yeah, and I'll get the new Smash as everybody else. :P

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

Hard decision. A new Zelda game is always great news and we had two, but I knew those games were coming. Same with Smash, though I loved the invitational. Splatoon may be the first multiplayer shooter I pick in a long time, but it depends if it is retain/digital only and the price, is not that great for me. Mario Maker I want badly (people making Mario levels for me for free, yes please) but is in a too early stage. Soooooo... I pick Captain Toad, yep love me a good 3D puzzle adventure game.

They didn't officially show StarFox, I am not counting it.

Oh man, you'll be streaming at the same time of the My Little Pony season finale! You guys are mean :P. I will check it before and after that of course. Also, I was actually planning to play MKWii this weekend, you know, since we are getting close to the end of its online life.

Twilight_Crow commented on Download Sales On Nintendo Formats Have Treble...:

Here in México the eshop prices of retail games are as high as the most expensive stores (and those stores have better sales that include Nintendo first party games) so no, I'm not going digital thank you very much. For example, MK8 digital is gonna be about $77. I am not stupid, looking for the right store I can buy MK8 for about $70 at launch. Nintendo eshop pricing sucks here, only retail game I am considering buying digital is Bravely Default ($54 on eshop) because I haven't been able to find a physical copy anywhere, and it is such a good game I know I won't get a good deal anyway.

Twilight_Crow commented on Nintendo of America is Cutting the Price of Fi...:

I have 4 of those games (and I wouldn't touch AC with a 3 mile pole), so meh. It will be interesting to see how those discounts translate in my country though.

Nintendo's online pricing sucks here in Mexico. They insist on using the same prices as the biggest department stores, which have to pay tons of taxes to get the games to begin with. There is no way I am going to pay about $54 USD for StarFox 3D on the eshop, I understand why the stores have those prices but Nintendo is just being greedy, after all, downloadable only games' prices are the same as in USA. Also, ALL prices on the PSN store are the same as in USA. Sony store > Nintendo eshop.

Twilight_Crow commented on Feature: How A Team Of Dedicated Fans Is Fixin...:

@R_Champ Well, yeah, that is called fanfiction, there are tons of it on the Internet and it can be really great. Take the characters you like and put them on different situations, creating alternate universes, it is fun.

And guess what? Mods, fanfiction, fan art, none of that stops you from enjoying the things you like. The original works are still there, no one is destroying them or kidnapping them or forbidding you to experience it as the original creator wanted.

All kinds of fan content is just people taking something they like and doing something different with it, in some cases really great things come from fan made stuff, and, unless they profit from it, is perfectly legal.

All Smash Bros. games have been good, none have been perfect, and not everybody likes everything about them. These guys did a fantastic job, I really don't care to play PM, but man that is some hard programming, honor where honor is due; and mods can't affect you unless you use them. For example If someone wants to grab Brawl and, I don't know change all the characters to ponies... wait that, would actually make me really happy, bad example... If someone grabs Brawl and mods it to make it even slower because they really like slow games, does it affects the original game? Does it affects me? Nope, If it is what they like fine with me.

Darn, shouldn't have gotten Giana Sisters on the past sale, this one is much better. Well, that is life.

Got TokiTori+ on another sale too, bought Runner 2 day one on my PS3 and with Spin the Bottle completely out of the question, I only have to consider MSFHDE... wait, I have the original on my 3DS... silly sale with nothing I want. :P

Twilight_Crow commented on System Maintenance Targeting Wii Sports Club S...:

@IceClimbers Well, I got all sports for free on a disc I still can play, (I mean completely free, I didn't even pay for my Wii, I won it on a magazine contest) and the improvements on the games and their online are not good enough for me. I didn't say it was a ripoff for everyone, it is for me. You think you get value for your money, great, enjoy your games :), but I don't, different strokes man.

Twilight_Crow commented on System Maintenance Targeting Wii Sports Club S...:

I still have my WiiSports disc and don't care for online as it is at the moment. So, I have no intention of even acknowledging these minigames unless Nintendo fixes online and makes it a completely awesome experience, or the sports get cheaper, because $10 is a ripoff.

Twilight_Crow commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

I am very very shortsighted, thus no, for me, there is no difference in how games look between PS4/XBONE and PS3/360. Besides I've seen the evolution of games since Atari 8bits, there had to be a point where you really can't make something look that much better, for me that point is now. If you can see the difference, awesome, not sarcasm here, really, that is cool.

Apart from that, all consoles have good things, that is why they all have fanboys, even PC; it is all about what YOU like. I don't like realistic graphics, nor shooting gameplay, so XBONE is not for me, yet there are a couple of games I'd gladly play on it, like Crimson Dragon and the upcoming Project Spark. For PS4, I would totally enjoy Knack, is totally down my alley, even if it is not perfect, and Resogun looks amazing! But, still not enough to make me spend that much money on a new console. Most of WiiU games are from genres and have visuals I like, so I bought one.

I don't like to play on PC, and a good desktop is still a bit more expensive than a console. That said it is still the best option for gamers that like top graphics and frame rate, and that are tech savvy. I don't care for any of that, a matter of taste.

So, I chose the console that had what I liked the most, not the BEST, because there is no such a thing.

Twilight_Crow commented on Review: Sonic Lost World (Wii U):

Very good review. While The escapist's just skimmed through the game, and Destructoid's was the opinion of a Sonic fan, NL's review was very insightful and explained the game very well. Great job Thomas!

Collecting Sonic 3D games is a guilty pleasure of mine (Except Sonic 06, there are bad games, and there is THAT ONE), so I'm getting this anyway, but I guess it can wait.

X, because Xerneas is the most stylish legendary since Suicune, and I really like it. Oh and it has hooves, I'm really into hooves right now. ;)

You made it sound as if X was winning, but both versions are very even as I write this; good.

Twilight_Crow commented on Talking Point: The Steam Gaming Machines Are A...:

The Steam Box, now Steam Machines, are a very ambitious project, and it could either fail miserably or become one the best things in videogames. Valve has some guts to try this idea. Since the beginning I've had my eyes on this new console. I don't like to play games on my PC, and because of that I have missed many great Indy games that are up my alley more than any big blockbuster title of these times, one of the Steam Machines could solve my problem.

Imagine a cheap machine that can play most of the Indy games on the market, receiving the same awesome sales that Steam on PC has, I'll be all over it in a second.

Even if Nintendo has its own thing going on, a game machine cheaper than WiiU, that plays thousands of good, cheap games is something to be concerned. Nintendo needs to be careful, because if Valve gets these right, everyone will have a competitor to fear.

For example, In my case, depending on prices, capabilities and games available, I may end up more interested in a powerful Steam Machine instead of a PS4, since so far there are no exclusives announced for it I care for.

Twilight_Crow commented on Poll: Would You Buy Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U?:

@theberrage @G3ry @NINTENBOY

Excuse me that I tell you this guys but you really can't guess exactly the reasons anyone of us has to not want GTAV (or in my case any GTA). Since I'm an oddball, let me be very specific.

I'm not in denial. I know the games I like and the games I don't. I got a PS3 and bought Assassins Creed 2 and INfamous and discovered I'm not fond of open world sandbox games to begin with. Then there is the fact that I don't like shooters of any kind, and this has a main gameplay of shooting. Yes it does have many minigames and things to do... did I mention I don't like open sandbox games already? Yes, I think so. The story, I'm not interested in it, even if it were a movie or a TV show, is not something I would watch. Finally it looks very realistic, this I can pass if the game is enjoyable, but games that happen in realistic worlds already have problems with me liking them; and I'm talking visuals here, don't go and tell me it is just fantasy anyway, I know that.

So... no, I don't want this game in any console. As you can see is not even specifically the violence, but this particular game's violence is not my thing EITHER.

Why the heck am I going to buy a game that has so many things I either don't like nor care about?

It looks like a great game, won't be the first great game I don't like.coughMetalGearSolidcough It would be great if it came to WiiU, because of the people that likes it. I think is a piece of art, the way they managed to make it so violent to even disturb people like some movies do, and the world they designed, R* did a great job, but not because a game is good it means it's going to be liked by every gamer in the world.

Twilight_Crow commented on Poll: Would You Buy Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U?:

No matter how good a GTA is I'd never get one. I understand it has its fans and that is fine; I completely support violence in video games, but not all violence is the same, and there are some kinds that are not fun for me.

That said, shame it didn't come to the WiiU.

Twilight_Crow commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I like violence, oh yes I do, but I don't like being forced to do violence. If I buy a game like... mmm Ninja Gaiden 3 for example, I know what I'm getting myself into, the kind of violence I like. But after seeing the reviews of every GTA, I know that it has violence that I don't find fun AND GTA IV and V seemed more forceful with you to perform it to advance in the game, bleh. When I first played a GTA in a friends house (not sure what version it was) I just drive around running over people, and then shooting the police, it was fun for a bit, it was what a sand box game about crime was supposed to be imo, but it was not that great, the games have nothing for me, even those crime stories are meh to me. Also, I don't like shooters and I don't like realism (no matter if it is violent or not)... Which basically means I don't like any AAA game coming out lately now that I think about it heh, but I'm watching a lets's play of Last of Us, you will never see me doing that for GTA.

Twilight_Crow commented on Talking Point: Wii U and Third-Party Inconsist...:

I discovered something incredible this last console generation... I don't like most non-Nintendo triple A games. I got a PS3, and after buying several AAA games I thought I was missing on because I only had a Wii, I realized I really didn't like them that much, I mildly liked some but they were too expensive to only get mild entertainment. The games are not bad, I just don't like them. I discovered I don't like the realistic visuals, the melodrama in some stories, and most importantly I don't like ANY shooting gameplay. For a moment there I thought I just didn't like games anymore. Along came the indi games on PSN and suddenly I realized I just don't like the big names on the market, but I still like games. The AAA market has turned away from me, all but Nintendo that is. I'm happy with my WiiU, because now I know I don't care for any current third party games, and the ones I want are coming to WiiU or PS3. (except KH 3 :(, but one game is not enough). My eyes for a second system are on the Steam Box.

I saw the ND today, and immediately downloaded the demo. Funny thing is that I accidentally went into mission mode instead of story, and I started wondering why they weren't explaining anything.... anyway I winged it, only with the info from the ND and I think I faired very well and I enjoyed it. I can see it has dept but at the same time knowing the basics and thinking before acting is still effective. I'm definitely getting the game.

Wait a minute here. Why is everybody talking as if "no cutscenes" equals "no SSE kind of gameplay". As far as I read he just said the one player mode will not have cutscenes (which are completely stupid to cut out, I mean people still watch those videos because they are fun, no matter how much you see them. What is next? "My new Kirby game won't have an ending because people would upload it to YouTube"?).

It would be pretty funny if we end up with a new one player mode that somehow ends up playing similar to the SSE, just without the cutscenes. :P

I am happy that this game has been such a big success for Nintendo. I however don't like this kind of games. I have played some free ones and building a town, pretending to live in it, collecting useless stuff, playing mini games only at certain dates, is just... Bleh.

But being honest, I specifically hate Animal Crossing. I discovered my distaste when I got AC for GC. Played it for a year until one day I realized that I hated playing it. I literally frowned each time I boot it up, and yet I had kept playing it as part of an OCD routine. I promised to never touch an AC again. It is not for me neither socially nor alone.

Never cared about the Street Pass, and I'm not going to buy any app related to that, unless suddenly they show one mini game that greatly appeals to me, but I doubt it.

Anyway, If a 3rd party made the apps, Nintendo should pay them, but Nintendo tends to put relatively high prices on small things. Let's hope the content is worth the price.

Sorry for the people that likes EA games, but I just don't care. Their sports games are just for big sports fans otherwise they are boring to dead, and I don't like realistic racing games.

I am not disappointed with Nintendo, this was was a hard E3, they have to play safe, I mean these are hard times for the whole video game industry. And yet they still found it in themselves to be nice and funny. I love Nintendo. But the creepy villager is creepy, and he does have an axe, and a net, and a shovel...

I think I understand what they are doing, and why many gamers here don't like it, but I don't know much about business so I will just wish Nintendo good luck, and I hope this business model works as they expect. The games coming did not surprise, but that won't stop me from getting most of them when I can.
