unrandomsam commented on First Run Wii U Copies of Rodea the Sky Soldie...:

I was going to buy the Japanese one for the Wii version but I don't think I will need it now. (Obviously I will still use the wiimote). Probably just get it digitally though.

It wasn't vapourware because it was made. (As the Wii version proves).



unrandomsam commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Mega CD:

Not putting the video output pins into the Megadrive expansion port was the first big mistake. Maybe they should have done the passthrough thing for the Mega CD and put better video hardware in that.

The Saturn had plenty of power it was just under utilised (Seems to be a recurring theme to this day).

@AugustusOxy Modern console games physical makes no difference - at the point where you can no longer get the patch / online is turned off then it is just as worthless as a download. Steam is good in that you can easily break the DRM if you ever need to which gives a real guarantee of being able to play indefinitely.

@AirElephant Reggie is nothing compared to Howard Lincoln I agree. Anything of note Reggie did was cancel the forward planning done by Lincoln for the future. Retro being able to make 4 games at once including a sports game would have made quite a difference at the moment.

When Lincoln got EA back on board then they stayed onboard (GC Era).



unrandomsam commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

"A huge, seamlessly unfolding world is something that can't be achieved if the hardware isn't advanced enough." - Ultima VII managed it in 1992 (And better than pretty much anything else since).

The SNES port understandably was cut back but any system after that should have been able to handle it. (It was a 20MB game).



unrandomsam commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

@gcunit The current method only uses a tiny fraction of the scale for the games most people would bother with anyway.

9 can mean its a half decent game in a genre the reviewer likes (Or the site grades too highly for the big first party Nintendo games in order to get the embargo dropped first.)



unrandomsam commented on Talking Point: Limitations on Stock and Advert...:

It is a technical impossibly to have Nintendo like profits without stock. Making stuff as needed is always going to be less profitable than making loads of them at once.

TV Advertising is a waste of money. (That could be spent on making the game being advertised better).
