XCWarrior commented on DeNA Dreaming of 100 Million Daily Users on Fu...:

@Monsti First game won't flop. It will make back their money. Might not be a huge massive success, but it will make money. It's Nintendo. They have branding over just about any other video game company.

100 million users a day thing is stupid though. 5 million, sure.



XCWarrior commented on Gallery: The Natives Are Most Definitely Hosti...:

@Kifa There are people who only play games on Nintendo systems. I'm not one of them, but there are many.

I get what a ripoff is... but honestly you can't sue for a graphic design type. As long as they change the names of some stuff, it's going to be OK copyright wise. Imitation is the sinceriest form of flattery.

Not like Minecraft people are bringing their game to WiiU/3DS, the systems aren't capable of running the game, or the guy's cat is allergic to Nintendo, or not enough polygons, or whatever BS excuse their PR person wants to use.



XCWarrior commented on Life of Pixel Developer Highlights Sales Figur...:

This more or less is a confirmation of a couple of well known facts:
1) Steam is the only platform most gamers buy from (with a few exceptions, event I fall under this category).
2) Too many PC games released everyday, market hard to find traction.

I wish this meant...
Hey PC devs who use Unity, come to WiiU eshop, where there is WAY less competition. And if you make a quality product, usually you are going to do somewhat well. Not Minecraft well, but certainly sell more than 1,000 units.



XCWarrior commented on Freedom Planet Bringing Its Brand of Sonic-Sty...:

Based on all the comments, I can't wait to get home and watch the trailer. The voice acting sounds amazing.

And if the game just has a limited amount of bugs and glitches, it would beat Sonic, based off Boom's reviews.



XCWarrior commented on Meme Run Disappears from the Wii U eShop:

Hearing rumors on Internet that Microsoft bought exclusivity for the game. I really hope that is true, because I love hearing stupid companies making stupid decisions with their money.

Either way, the eshop is better place and human kind is in a better place with this "game" now unpurchasable.



XCWarrior commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights the Crisis and Opportu...:

@bezerker99 Must have been a bad day to have beserker as a username. Had a person on my backlog update his log and say he lost all his 3ds data in a transfer, that's why I thought you were the same guy, lol.

Either way, suck man. Though I only upgrade my PC every 6-7 years, and I'm fine. Less frequent than console cycles.



XCWarrior commented on Iwata Doesn't Feel amiibo Has Shown Its Full P...:

Nothing about increasing production on these things. I still think Iwata is totally wrong about people wanting to use these things for games.

They want statues Iwata. Don't produce or release cards to replace the rare amiibos. Most people are NOT using them for games. Make statues without the video game compatibility, and those will sell just as well and be cheaper.



XCWarrior commented on New Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Eon T...:

I could just be forgetting, but are these remakes getting more love with distributions than X and Y did? I didn't pick either of these up because X/Y had so little new to offer. Just a bit annoying... but still not picking it up.

I want my co-op online battle tower/mansion/whatever Game Freak. You did it in Soul Silver/Heart Gold, so I'm not asking for the moon!



XCWarrior commented on Reaction: Satoru Iwata Holds Off on Major Anno...:

@Folkloner Agreed. You barely ever known when Virtual Console releases come out. Nintendo could stand to improve use of notifications in general on 3DS and WiiU.

So basically, sounds like Nintendo is doing fine right now. Not great, not terrible. Just well enough. They probably could stand to make more amiibo, but they don't seem too concerned about it. They said they are surprised, but certainly didn't save definitively they are going to ramp up production.



XCWarrior commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Apex Champion Call...:

As long as unification means Items on and on very high frequency, then I can get behind this.

Otherwise, I really don't care if people chant for the N64 game. If you think elements of a game should be banned for "competitive" reasons, you are taking things WAY too seriously.



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

@LordRoke "Fun" is an all encompassing word. It might have made you tense, made you think, made you sad/happy, etc etc. The point is, the game wasn't boring or so broken it's not playable.

People love to make everything way more complicated than it needs to be. So in that sense I like Eurogamer's system of "Essential" "recommended" and "Avoid." It's to the point, and not trying to over complicate things.



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

@NintyMan I disagree on the "video games are complex things."

Video games are either fun or they are not. That's pretty simple in the end. And that's what a review is telling you in a nutshell. Sure, it's "You will find this game fun if you like this genre," but at the end of the day, a video game is fun, or it is not. No complexity.... and if a game is super complex, most people don't find it fun. (Some do).



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

There was a key question not asked in the poll:

"Would a scoring system be less necessary if we stopped righting 1000+ word reviews?"

The answer is yes.

I like to read reviews, but I don't want to see a novel. Once you go past 500 words, you are wearing thin on my patience. I don't need a full synapses of the game. Just hit the high points and let me know if the game is worth it to buy. Want to explain the game and detail? Do that in a follow up story, like a "First 60 minutes with Game X." Didn't you guys or someone use to do that?

The point is, I need a review score if you can't be concise.



XCWarrior commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

@Quorthon Every now and then they do... but most of the time, the rich people get off with slap on the wrist. Obviously we are WAY off topic at this point.

The bottom line is that Nintendo is making the rules. The little people can complain all they want, but every time you go buy an amiibo, which cost them $1 to make costs you $13-$50 to buy, you are telling Nintendo you like how they do things.



XCWarrior commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

@Yorumi Rich people almost never go to jail when they commit murder/do other bad things and almost always magically get off or receive light punishment. Those rules about bribery and what not only apply to those who can't bribe with a high enough amount.
