Nothing Is Everything

113,

Huge Nintendo fan since '08. 3DS owner since Launch. I love Science Fiction. I'm probably what qualifies as a troll. Sorry in advance. :P

@Jazzer94

What do you mean 'believe'? It's undeniable!

Russia invaded Crimea( A Ukrainian territory ) temporarily, and then left, but not before they riled up pro-Russian rebels in the region, so now Ukraine has a rebel force consisting of its own citizens backed by Russia, as is evident with the downing of the Malaysian flight, which was flying at an altitude of 37,000 feet, the rebels had previously only possessed missiles capable of reaching 5,000 feet, however the plane was shot down in Ukraine air space by a surface-to-air missile system later confirmed by analysts to be a BUK Launcher, a BUK Launcher's missiles are capable of reaching 60,000+ feet, furthermore, Russia openly admits to owning BUK Launcher systems, although obviously they denied supplying the Ukrainian rebels with any. Over 290 people died on that flight.

So, yes, in the same way some Europeans( Not whole nations, but rather individuals ) support ISIS, an extreme Islamic group in the Middle East that currently controls a significant portion on Syria, it's not insane to 'believe' certain parties and or peoples would be extreme enough to threaten a Ukrain-based developer simply for being just that: A Ukraine-based developer, it's a different racism than what's usual in the U.S. A news YouTube channel named The Young Turks has done an excellent job covering the crisis in Ukraine, if you'd care to learn more.

@Unca_Lz I can't speak for 'originally' as this is the first I'd heard of this, all I know is they said in their response they were based in Ukraine... Perhaps they also have an office here, I was given the impression they were a small, independent company, however.

@FragRed What the ****? Kickstarter is in the wrong here morally, not West Games, WG did nothing wrong except being located in Ukraine, which drew hate from irrational Russian and pro-Russian radicals. What message exactly did you mean for your comment to convey?

WinterWarm commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

@Teejay It's not just because she's similar to Marth that people are mad, but she is definitely a fan favorite from FE:A and fans wanted her to be unique, I understand their frustration at this somewhat let-down.

I was kinda let down he(Chrom) wasn't going to be playable, but I kind of agree with Sakurai-san on this one, the more I look back on it, the more I see Chrom really wouldn't bring anything fresh to Smash. :/

Regardless I'm not going go play as Marth at all, this is my first Smash, so Lucina's similarity will be lost on me and I will experience her as if she's one of a kind, because for me, she is. :)

@Sherman Awesome. XD

I'm flat-out sick of Marth, he's not in the limelight anymore, YOU SKIPPED 1000 YEARS STOP SUPPORTING THIS CHARACTER.

Also, I know it'd be hard to craft a moveset for her, but I wanna see Tiki in SSB5.

@2Sang I never thought of custom-movesets as a solution to this problem! That's brilliant, the problem would truly be solved if Lucina had an Amiibo(Did I say that right?) figure.

@billychaos ...

@Captain_Toad Then you're dead to me. >:{

WinterWarm commented on Review: Naruto: Powerful Shippuden (3DS):

@Mus1cLov3r Ha, I'm in that same position, I've been wanting to get MH3U for a few weeks, although, you could pay for shipping and have it delivered to your address. If your local GameStop offers that. I know all the ones in Ohio do.

No, NintendoLife is the only Nintendo community/site I'm a part of, I've yet to see a reason to join another, NL's got everything, plus it's a popular site, so they get previews on games and interviews with devs. :)

@MadMan4230 Pardon me, but your comment is idiotic. Are you serious? Free? Where have you been the past 40 years video games have been around? Shut up, get educated and back when you have half a brain, noob.

WinterWarm commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Explains His Belief That the ...:

I agree with Miyamoto-san. One amazing, creative, one of a kind game comes along, and all the other games in the genre copy it for a few years until something else amazing comes along. Too many developer disguise copying as 'inspiration'.

@Mus1cLov3r

Yep, last time I checked, anyway, I suppose they could've changed it, I don't have the demo anymore, though, music/rhythm games are too linear for me, I prefer freedom in gameplay.

To each his own, I suppose. :)

No, not yet, with all the fantastic first-party retail and eShop games that've come out in the last year, it's been constantly pushed back on my wish-list, haha. What about you? Made a decision yet?

WinterWarm commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

I'll just say it: Tablet and mobile games are not games, they are cheap, mainly free temporary entertainment devices.

A 3 year old most likely owns a 'educational tablet' than a Kindle or an iPad, one that teaches math, grammar or social skills through 'games', granted the odds of that decrease with each year the child ages, thus further deluding this study.

I ask you, were your emotions ever stirred by a good game of Bejeweled? Now, how did you feel when you watched someone commit suicide in Fire Emblem Awakening? See, because it's(mobile) not a game, it's distraction.

Mobile gaming will never, ever defeat handheld titles. As Reggie Fils-Aime put it at this E3: "Those of us who play games know there's nothing quite like them in the world." No one feels or speaks that strongly about Flappy Bird.

Further, one could make the argument that a solely mobile gamer( iOS, Android, Windows ), is not a gamer at all. Why? Because mobile gaming is not gaming, gaming is something you look forward to, mobile 'gaming' is a time-killer.

I'll say it again, mobile gaming in and of itself does not exist. Mobile games save a few are not to be even considered when the topic of video games arises.

I agree, between Digital Rights Management( DRM ) and Nintendo's new stance of sample conent, you can't help but be frustrated, what I find interesting is that not all demos on the 3DS eShop have:

A. The same number of uses.

B. Limits on playtime.

Rather, the Final Fantasy title demo who names escapes me at this moment, has unlimited uses.

This means Nintendo is not forcing developers to have restrictions, but that the developers themselves are choosing to do this, how does that create customer loyalty, I ask you?

In regard to the second half on your post and your question:

The Wii certainly didn't( or, doesn't ) have demo restrictions.

I myself don't own a WiiU(yet), so I personally can't tell you, but I can't imagine Nintendo not doing the same, especially since both online store share the same surname, if you will.

@torotoid64

Alright man, chill. We all know WiiU has more quality games than that, Like Arkham, for example, also I noticed you made no mention of the eShop, which is full of amazing titles, don't let your frustration lead you to make intentionally false claims, it will in the end do nothing but embarrass you and as a whole it makes the community look bad.

Nintendo has always been about innovation, and with innovation inevitably comes trial and error. Have patience, have you seen any Nintendo E3 footage? Great games are coming!

WinterWarm commented on Talking Point: New Ideas, Not New IPs, Are The...:

Hmm, very interesting article. What struck me the most is the Intelligent Systems bit, fans demanding two separate things to happen at once really isn't possible. Nintendo fans are the most picky, in my opinion.

Nintendo's doing right as far as first-party games are concerned, I think what alot of fans(especially older ones) want is some kind of reassurance that currently 'dead' franchises(F-Zero) will come back, they've adopted a sort of 'all aboard' mentality, wanting new IPs and experiences, willing to take risks on them, but not wanting to lose anything in the process. Essentially, they want Nintendo to manage the franchises it already has first, before they begin new ones.

As for Code Name: S.T.E.A.M., I, myself as a younger gamer, am extremely excited for this game's release, I've never played Wave Race, F-Zero, or even Star Fox, my first Nintendo console was a Wii, so the franchises I'm familiar with are Zelda, Pokemon, Kirby, Mario(and his many off-shoots), and, last year, Fire Emblem(which quickly became my favorite), so I can't say I understand why so many people are adamant about this franchises return, and as such I'll reserve any judgement until I play them someday.

In closing, it doesn't matter what you want: New IPs or the complete revival of old ones, just pick one and stay with it so Nintendo can find out what the majority of its customers want, Nintendo rarely goes in the completey opposite direction of what its supporters want.

WinterWarm commented on Nintendo Download: 15th May (North America):

Something about Moon Chronicles seems wierd to me, what guarantee does anyone have that they'll make the DLC packs? What if 'funding runs out'? I'm not giving them $9.00 until they release all the content. :/
