YorkshireNed commented on Rumour: A Class in Bravely Second is Supposedl...:

Its not politically correctness and its not censorship. Firstly, Native Americans really do get very pissed about people appropriating the head dress because of its important significance to them. Secondly, Nintendo is not censoring it, as censorship is something forced from an external source like a government or licensing board. They are just localising it, like they do for everything that has a lot of story that goes West. Japan and the West are not the same and do not share the same values or cultures. Nintendo is a big company out to make big profit. Therefore they customise their product for the market it is being released in. Jokes that do not make sense in the West get replaced, cultural references that people in the West would not understand get replaced and nobody cries censorship over those. If you want to play the games as they were originally made then learn Japanese language and culture then import the games. You can't expect them to translate them and not adapt them for the market they are trying to sell them to. It's just business.



YorkshireNed commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

One point overlooked is that by making it adjustable, female players can customise the character to represent themselves, no matter how they are. You could argue that it was a potentially inclusive feature. 13-year olds in a thong is still very dodgy, though.

Anyway, who cares? Nobody got excited about this game because it promised adjustable busts or nonce-bait, we got excited because its the RPG blockbuster the Wii U has been crying out for.



YorkshireNed commented on Hands On: Getting Pinned Down By Nintendo Badg...:

Weird, I've only seen Mario & Animal Crossing badges on mine and I downloaded it right after Nintendo Direct. Has it been out longer in America? I have to confess, I'm getting addicted. I've even chucked in a little bit of money.



YorkshireNed commented on Preview: Getting Lost in the World of Xenoblad...:

I remember the original Xenoblade was very confusing at first and I'd been playing a VERY long time before I realised about building affinity....and the specific time/place/weather missions were baffling. Yet it still is one of my favourite games of all time.



YorkshireNed commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

I'm not a big fan of censorship and I'm a big Xenoblade fan but I don't think I'd want to own a game that featured 13-year old girls in sexy outfits. Anyone who thinks this change is somehow a bad thing perhaps might be a little bit out of touch with how society works. If you don't believe me, walk into your nearest bar, strike up a conversation with a stranger and tell them you like looking at 13-year old girls in silver thong bikinis....



YorkshireNed commented on Yes, Fatal Frame's Lingerie Outfits Have Been ...:

People are moaning that it's censorship but I think its less a case of Nintendo being against revealing outfits on characters in M-rated games and more against something that is tacky and frankly embarrassing. Anyone who objects to this needs to post a youtube video of them exploring a haunted house at night while wearing only their underwear and then I will take their whining seriously. Until then, you're a joke



YorkshireNed commented on Rumour: Mega Man Is Starring In A Mega Movie T...:

Of course, what could possibly go wrong? I bet not only will this film be so bad it makes you want to hammer nails into your own eyes rather than watch it all the way through, but there'll also be a horrible tie-in game made by some game studio you never heard of that feels nothing like a Mega Man game. BAH!



YorkshireNed commented on Interview: Lilian "Milktea" Chen Talks Smash B...:

Wow, you can be a professional smash bros player? That sounds great...not that I'd ever get to that level but kudos to those who can. And kudos to Lilian who sounds like a calm, reasonable person who's shrugged off the nastier elements of the community with maturity and stoicism.



YorkshireNed commented on Rumour: ZombiU Is Shedding Its Wii U Exclusivi...:

Can't see why people are getting so upset over this. Wii U would still have hadyears of exclusivity plus you can't fault Ubisoft for wanting to actually make back some of the money they lost developing this classic game. Fair play to Ubisoft for trying to support Wii U in its launch period. Nobody bought the games for Wii U so they don't release them anymore.



YorkshireNed commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

I know its frustrating when you can't get hold of things you would want to but the harsh reality is if Nintendo made an abundance of every Amiibo figure then only the few would buy them. Its been commonplace in the music industry for years now. If you make a record that isn't a very limited edition then nobody buys it as they feel no pressure and instead spend their money on something that will soon sell out. The demand for these Amiibos is fueled by their rarity. I own 12. If they were all permanently available forever, I'd probably only own 2. Sorry folks, but thats capitalism.



YorkshireNed commented on Lucas DLC Confirmed for 14th June Release on S...:

we bought Mewtwo because my son is Pokémon mad but its hard to muster any enthusiasm for this. Never played Mother 3 and on the Wii Smash Bros he seemed too similar to Lucas. Now if they do Mother 3 for virtual console then my enthusiasm will carry me away to buy him but otherwise.....nah



YorkshireNed commented on Talking Point: The Fragility of Buying Downloa...:

There's a flipside, though. Two months ago Iost my 3DS on a bus. It never showed up. The physical game that was in it was lost forever but when I reported it to Nintendo, they logged me out of the lost 3DS and when I signed into the replacement I bought, I was able to redownload EVERYTHING I had bought and all my ambassador freebies. Oddly, the downloads have longer lives with me as I always end up selling off physical games when I am short of money.



YorkshireNed commented on ​Doctor Who Confirmed For Lego Dimensions On...:

Oh Darn! We'd vowed we were going to ignore Lego Dimensions because we spend too much on Amiibos but Doctor Who? Now we're onboard! And if we're going to get Doctor Who, we might as well get some others so we can have crazy crossovers. Peter Capaldi's prickly Doctor teaming up with Scooby Doo? Mind blowing



YorkshireNed commented on Tales of More Super Smash Bros. amiibo Pre-Ord...:

the curse of Amiibo hadn't hit me too hard apart from the Ness letdown. This time round things have been trickier. My Jigglypuff pre-order from Nintendo UK also got cancelled the next day with a priority on the sold out next batch. And now my Pac Man had gone wrong. I set paypal as my payment method for the pre-order. Then they tried to charge it the day before my monthly payday and because it go declined they had to cancel the preorder as Paypal doesn't let them try again. Going to use my debit card next time
