Vader_MIB commented on Mega Man Legacy Collection Gets a Budget Price...:

My 3DS was close to fly around the room when i read the news. Disappointment at its best for me in France. Too bad, will not buy it (thanks also again to that stupid region lock policy). Those days, i am buying more Vita games because i can import US physical versions...



Vader_MIB commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

Forgot to say my thoughts went even more on the hard side following the recent scandal for games on iOS removed from the "games you bought" list after they were removed from the app store, which means that after some time, you completely lose a game. It does not happen when you have the cartridge.



Vader_MIB commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

Personal example: i did not buy Shin Megami Tensei IV and Dual Destinies, regardless of the many promotions. I want physical copies of "big games". Still, i have Shovel Knight and some otehrs indies, + all Sega Classics. But i am very happy about the coming physocal version fo SK. That reminds me also of this f... region lock policy. I have a PS Vita also. I buy retail copies of several games which are released in NA as cartridge but only as downladables in EU.



Vader_MIB commented on Weirdness: French Far-Right Political Party Us...:

When i saw that yesterday (i'm French BTW), i first wondered how can the designer of this think for a minute this will go unnoticed... (i believe far-right wings people don't think too much and too deep, but still...).



Vader_MIB commented on Midora Developer Admits He Knew Kickstarter Fu...:

And the guy admits he knew from the beginning... Wow. I hope he will get sued properly, because this is most probably against Kickstarter terms and conditions. Personally, after one problem with crowdfunding (i participated in some projects), i just stopped and closed my account. Never again. And i think this will happen more and more just because such people. And then, end of crowdfunding in a few years.



Vader_MIB commented on Industry Analysts Speculate On Nintendo's Futu...:

Aren't there all those guys who several times were totally wrong about Nintendo in the past? And had Nintendo followed their "predictions", it would have probably really died...
Can't those useless people just work when they are contracted but leave us alone otherwise?



Vader_MIB commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

If i had one wish to be fulfilled, Nintendo would sell boxed versions of games all over the world and give up this stupid region lock system put in place only since 3DS (eg i will never purchase Ace Attorney Dual Destiny here in France where we have only eshop version vs the rest of the world which has boxed version). Plus link game downloads to an account instead of a console like on every other system making sense.
This guy is just another commercial trying to sell stuff to fans he knows everything about (easy generalization as always). Usual industry guy.



Vader_MIB commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

I agree on the fact that there is a big problem of how to own the game you download on the eShop. I will never buy a digital game on my Nintendo system for high price. As soon as your system fails, you loose the game.
For that high price, i am old school: only physical copy. If they offer me a cartridge with Affordable Space Adv. for 40 euros, i would buy it. 20 euros digital: hack no. Even worse if the game exists in another country as a cartridge, like Ace Attorney Dual Destiny. I will NEVER buy it, regardless of the price, if it is not brought to me in France as in the USA as a physical game.



Vader_MIB commented on Bravely Second Offers Over 100 Hours Of Gamepl...:

I was playing Bravely Default very recently, following the very good critics it got from everywhere... Enjoyable game, until you have to repeat everything... I just quit after 50 hours. Unbearable boredom. Really. I had to stop, i would not stand it anymore. I invested much time and just could not finish it. So sorry, i won't fall for the second.



Vader_MIB commented on Let's Educate Parents About Mature Titles, Sug...:

When i bought a PS4 for my nephews last Christmas, i made sure their parents, who are absolutely not gamers, understand that there is an age rating on games. I told them they must follow this rule, as not being aware of modern days games. Just because they are not knowledgeable, there is an age rating to help them, and so they can at least rely on something.
For those who just don't believe the stories, when i was a kid, it took me some time to forget about Predator movie. And this was a movie, less immersive than games.
And don't tell me than even as adults, you sometimes do not think of JAWS when going for swimming.
My kids will play Nintendo. And if their friends tell them COD is so good, i will invite all those to have evening Splatoon party.



Vader_MIB commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

I don't think Nintendo needs any advertisement from Youtubers to sell their games. They make enough buzz before being released, to be sold out day one. So, unlike other AAA games and other publishers, Nintendo does not need them. So why bother. Efforts, creativity and every penny comes from Nintendo at the beginning, it is then fair enough that others don't make money on that.
