Unit_DTH commented on Monochroma For Wii U Scrapped Due To Technical...:

@Quorthon "People need to be smarter and not run their lives (and mouths) with thoughtless knee-jerk reactions and black-and-white sentiments towards things like Kickstarter. No matter where you're investing or donating money, there is always an element of risk. Being afraid of that is why people here--so readily dismissing Kickstarter--will never make money on the Stock Market. Because they seem to fear risk so completely. The smarter way to do this is to do your research and balance the risk vs reward and chances of success."

I agree with you. I have backed quite a few KS titles, some didn't make it, but the ones that did are still coming along nicely and I'm sure they will be enjoyable experiences.

Unit_DTH commented on Bill Trinen Appears To Have Left Nintendo Of A...:

@AyeHaley Also, could you elaborate on what wouldn't be "un-nintendo"? Would it be something along the lines of following all the norms of the industry that they are so deeply ingrained in? Or perhaps making a console that is right in line with the specs of all the other consoles available? I've noticed that they don't quite do things the way we think they should, so this thing isn't any surprise to me. Heck, have you seen the completely 90's themed US video ads for Splatoon?

@AyeHaley I think at the moment, for Nintendo at least, any publicity(stunt) is good publicity. I know it seems like a strange way to garner publicity, but think about how many people will now be following his movement for the rest of the day due to this status update... now, think about how many views Nintendo's post about it's E3 plans will get due to this little "stunt". It's pretty brilliant if you think about it that way, but in all honesty, he's probably just trolling like always.

Unit_DTH commented on Pawbyte Launches Game Pencil Engine to Support...:

@Morph A game engine by itself does not produce garbage, nor can it keep developers from producing garbage. It is just a tool, it is up to the developer to make the final decision about whether their game is worth making or not and you, as a consumer, help them to make a more educated decision about their title by purchasing the title, not purchasing the title, downloading the free demo and giving constructive feedback, or just totally ignoring the game. The engine just brings the parts together to do what the developer says they should, it doesn't create anything.

@dkxcalibur Let me help you, Get MH4 and Xenoblade Chronicles, then when Codename: STEAM drops in price, get it. I have MH4U and Codename: STEAM, both are great games, but MH4U has much more depth and longevity to it. Just trying to help point you in the right direction.

Unit_DTH commented on RCMADIAX Scales Back Wii U Plans for 2015:

I'm curious why the only developer to take the initial plunge into uncharted Nintendo waters is so hated on? If you don't want the quick fire and value priced games, then don't buy them, but the animosity that all of you continue to dole out to @RCMADIAX is completely uncalled for. He can defend himself and does a fine job of it on here with all of you, but seriously what is wrong with a game that is a copy of another concept? Aren't all platformers, or touch based games just copies of other ideas, there is alway a first in something and if you come after the first, how you present your idea is where you stand out. His presentation is perfectly fine and he doesn't pretend that he has made AAA blockbuster titles, so give the hatred a rest. We are talking about video games, not feeding the world or the morality of a nation, but a video game publisher... sheesh!

@Wouwter This is what made me finally enjoy the game! The virtual d-pad for the camera and the monster lock camera, before those I could not get into the games and I bought almost every iteration... I just never put in the amount of time I put into MH3U.

@ikki5
If you are a game developer and you have a family, which I don't know if he does or not, then your relationships can suffer greatly. It is a hard thing to balance making a good game with having a good private/family life. A lot of the time you sacrifice being present for special occasions, just to ensure that fans or potential fans will be pleased with the game you are working on. Cut the guy some slack, he is working pretty hard to please a bunch of ingrates.

I'm still excited for this game and am looking forward to it. The demo was a lot of fun, so I believe that the extended content that the full version will offer can only make it more enjoyable.

@IxC there is a nondisclosure agreement that all nintendo devs sign. You will not be getting this information from any legit sources, that will be continuing to develop for the platform. Nintendo has really good lawyers. That is all.

Unit_DTH commented on That Shocking Pokémon Announcement Was Arcade...:

The Wii U isn't selling well!
Then we should make an arcade game using one of our most famous IPs.
Isn't arcade gaming mostly dead.
Yes.
Then why not announce it for our latest home console and give it to the fans that really need and want games?
Don't think logically, darn you! We don't care about them!

^When I read articles like this, the above is the conversation that I imagine the heads of Nintendo are having with their developers. Why the heck would they not go ahead and announce this for the Wii U?! I love ya nintendo, but you are really testing my limits of what I will tolerate from you as a company. There are only so many bad decisions I will tolerate before I just put you aside and say, "No more. I am done with this nonsense."

Unit_DTH commented on Review: Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship E...:

@Peach64 Just wondering what you are referring to as "the competition"? Because I've had a PS4 since launch and it still doesn't have any "must have" indie titles on it, well at least not until this game just released on it. The Wii U has had a fairly steady stream of Indie support and more so recently, heck my Wii U menu looks crazy from all the indie titles I have on it! Which raises another small off-topic point... Who else feels like Nintendo needs to give us "Folders" akin to the 3DS for organizing our Wii U Home Menu? This is a much needed thing for the Wii U OS imo.

Between Shovel Knight and Armillo, I don't really have time for this one right now, but I will purchase it at my next earliest convenience, It looks great and I was really excited to hear when it was announced for the Wii U. I'm gonna be broke before the even bigger titles come to the Wii U later this year! If it weren't for all these wonderful Indie games, the Wii U might have another software drought. ;)

Unit_DTH commented on Review: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (...:

How disappointing! I was going to get this on my Wii U just to play the online modes, but since those are oddly, not included in the Wii U version... I will not be buying this game at all... ever! Thank you activation for showing your true colors!

@luke88 SITTM is one of the next one's on my list, I thought about getting it as a free DL for my PS4, but I would rather give the dev money for their hard work than get the game for free. Also, Knytt is another one that I want, but will have to wait until my funds replenish for that one. ;)
It's funny how much doom and gloom there is for the Wii U, I always brag on the eShop when I hear that nonsense. If you think there aren't any good games for the console then you don't have one, or you are just belligerent about having fun.

Been looking forward to this one for a while now! Got Child of Light last week and getting this, this week. Loading up on great games for the Wii U, then there is the impending doom, to other games in my collection, that is MK8! I'm liking the eShop more every week, don't much care about the VC, just keep the great indie titles coming.

Unit_DTH commented on Review: Abyss (Wii U eShop):

@TG1 I thought the controls were very loose on the DSiWare version of this game, and that was what made the difficulty ramp up in the later levels? Maybe I'm just easily amused.

Unit_DTH commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:

So, why is Iwata still in charge of Nintendo??? I'm lost trying to find an answer to that. Iwata's thought process, "QoL, that should distract them from our lack of focus on the Wii U... hehehe, what else do I think consumers would like? Whatever I'll do what I want!" *Cartman's voice from South Park rings in my head when I read the whole, "Nintendo is a company that can do whatever they want". Is that Iwata speaking or the shareholders of the company? I think that 125 years of business is being eroded away with Iwata at the helm of Nintendo.

@CaptainSquid I saw this image as well on their official site. You should also note that the founder of AE is not a graphic artist but more of a programmer and stated that he was getting an artist to begin making the concept art. I still agree with you that this image is terrible! But, the concept art gives me some type of hope for this game not being atrocious.

Unit_DTH commented on Club Nintendo in North America to Remove Post-...:

@Starwolf_UK Understandable, but my question remains. Will Wii games be able to use the Nintendo Network as the used the Nintendo Wi-Fi? i.e. trick the game into using Nintendo Network servers vs. using Nintendo Wi-Fi servers? I don't think there has been any clarification on this, but I'm not holding my breath for it.

@noctowl I feel the same way. You mean I can play a Zelda shooting game with this piece of plastic that holds both controllers?! Sign me up! No other games use it. A bathroom scale for a mere $90, where can I get one?! Oh right, I'm still lazy. lol
I love getting duped! ;)
