Vanya commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:
The Gamepad was a great idea. Some developers have put it to very good use, too. That said more developers should be using it more. Honestly there should be a massive library of first-person games on WiiU BECAUSE of the gamepad. A new Metriod Prime style game should have been at the top of Nintendo's development list as well as an attempt to bring as many FPS games to the system as possible even if they are older titles that traditionally live on PC.As for VC, the pad is great. However, Nintendo needs to come up with a way for the pad to not be locked to the vicinity of the console. How cool would it have been for Nintendo to be able to present WiiU as an HD console with a built-in portable device for VC? With the battery pack I don't see a good reason why the software can't be upgraded to be able to load up a selection of VC titles and then just take the gamepad wherever you want.
Vanya commented on Big Red Button Explains Its Sonic Boom Charact...:
These are completely unnecessary changes to established characters. The process here by Rafei was waaay over thought. There is no logic in change for the sake of change.Would old fans really dislike the game if the characters looked the same as they always have? No.Would new fans be mortified that the characters haven't changed? No.Will making change to established characters guarantee that you will upset some fans? Yes.So where is the logic here? Is the the fact that a character named Knuckles who has big spikes on his gloves not intuitive enough of a characterization?And anyway, what ever happened to not judging a book by it's cover?

The Japanese have a wonderful lack of any shame when it comes to sexuality. Things that a lot of people in the US freak out about they have no problem with and that is a good thing.
Vanya commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:
@Chi Read up on what's actually being done. There's no piracy here.Moreover, the system security on the Wii U was shattered 30 days after it was released and the hackers have specifically withheld the information to give Nintendo a chance sell systems without an all out rush to make backups playable. As a matter of fact, they are saying they won't even continue working unless someone can come up with a way to run linux on WiiU so you can do all the homebrew you want without risking piracy.
Incidentally the only legal thing you can do to a console hacker is void their warranty. There is nothing illegal about modifying your hardware.
Vanya commented on Wii Fit No Substitute For Real Exercise Accord...:
The research project is a huge "duh". Any exercise takes effort. They even stated that they get results in the lab, but at home there is a lack of motivation. That is true for any kind of exercise. You could get all the equipment in the world at home, or get a membership at the most expensive gym, but if you aren't motivated it won't do any good.It doesn't matter where you exercise as long as you're doing it right and regularly.

The thing I hate about seeing kick-donkey games like this coming to eshop is I'm almost certain that no one in a position to do so will want to get off their butt and make a translation for any other regions happen.
Please watch the profanity — TBD

They could also just release the original arcade games on virtual console.
Vanya commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:
About damn time! I've been mumbling about since I first heard about the Gamepad. Nintendo should have had DS games on Wii U from day 1. It's a huge library of great games that many Wii U owners would be happy to have access to.
Vanya commented on Talking Point: Is The Castlevania Series Finis...:
LoS has not been my cup of tea. I gave it a try several times but the feel of CV for me is just not there. I have similar issues with pretty much all the 3D titles in the series. LoS2 so far looks to me like a new version of Legacy of Kain than CV.That said, I do hope for more CV action on Wii U. As long as they stick to proper platformers I'll be happy with even just eshop releases. None of that Judgement garbage. I wish I could suggest a port of LoS, but for me that game was just boring, mediocre and overly derivative.
Vanya commented on Monolith Soft's X (Tentative Title):
I liked Xenoblade Chronicles so I have some hope for this one too. Can't wait to find out more about it. Exploration + Mecha = Awesome.
Vanya commented on Review: Mighty Switch Force! 2 (3DS eShop):
There are some funny idea floating around about what a "sequel" is and what constitutes a "series". Last time I checked the point of a sequel is to give the fans of the first game more of what they enjoyed and add a bit more to it.I think that's exactly what Way Forward did here. Could it have been better? Of course. Hind sight IS 20/20. That said the score on this review is fair enough.As for the series thing? Mighty Switch Force is now a series. The rest of the family of Mighty! titles can hardly be considered a series given they have nearly nothing in common. Except for some notable exceptions (I'm looking at you, Castlevania 2 and Zelda 2) games i a series share the bulk of their features with out straying too far.Just my two cents.
