If they did take a French Government grant to develop Ubiart (On the assumption it would be released for anybody to use to further art) that is about as scummy as you can get.
(If they planned to do that but never took the money that is different).

Maybe that would redeem them a bit in my eyes.

@Grumblevolcano This seems that it is finally how it should be. The heavier characters should be harder to use and take more practice. (Presuming that is what is going to happen over time).

I wish characters / parts could be changed between matches though. (More strategy depending on the competition or track).



unrandomsam commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Paid-DLC Details Emerge...:

I was going to just buy this now I need to look at exactly what having the easy xp / loot grind missions does.

Maybe I will wait until the DLC goes on sale.

(Although I have no choice over what other people do - I do have the choice to make sure they get less (Or nothing as was my choice with Mario Golf) than they would otherwise due to something I disagree with).



unrandomsam commented on Nintendo Download: 30th April (Europe):

@ShanaUnite 3D Classics Kirby has loads of bugs fixed and the slowdown removed. It is definitely worth it.

The Wii U Kirby's Adventure is particularly broken. It is a 50hz game with the speed of Kirby increased but the rest of the game still runs at the original speed.



unrandomsam commented on Famitsu Unleashes Xenoblade Chronicles X Score:

@Quorthon It is one place but the Western games media - a) have no taste in games generally or b) don't even like games but are in it because it has no standards really.

The Famitsu guy was the only guy in the E3 press tournament who looked as if he had ever touched a Smash Bros game before.



unrandomsam commented on Talking Point: Market Expectations Remain High...:

The stock market seems to love web and mobile stuff. (Huge valuations for companies that are not and have not ever made any money).

The iOS / Android markets are crowded for companies without a known IP. (Sega / Square Enix etc usually have a few in the top paid sections).

Square Enix charges more than VC for the better old games. (That model must be viable or they wouldn't keep using it).



unrandomsam commented on Review: 3D Fantasy Zone II (3DS eShop):

Fantasy Zone II was good on the Master System. (Certainly more interesting than the first). Better port.

(Nowhere near as bad as some of the terrible NES Arcade ports anyway that shouldn't ever have been released in favour of the Arcade original).



unrandomsam commented on Official GameCube Controller Adapter for Wii U...:

@Nintendude789 Mad Catz are pretty awful usually. (Other than the fight sticks that use Arcade parts). Hori stuff is decent that is all I know of. (But the cheap Arcade sticks not using Arcade parts are not very good). Mayflash is not the highest quality either. (But when they are the only option then they are the only option).



unrandomsam commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Br...:

@Octane Not sure that would apply to Mario Kart. People play it in large numbers until the next one is released.

Those other games you refer to are basically forgotten by that point. (And whereas the 3rd parties would have to pay to advertise Nintendo can make people aware for free on the eshop as annoying as it might be).

Civ V had its last expansion 3 years after release. (Is it bigger than Mario Kart ? almost certainly not the Wii incarnation).

(I don't want more but I would buy it presuming the price etc stays the same.)
