Yorumi commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams GamePad Sound Pa...:

@SCAR392 easier said than done, things slip through, Even nintendo doesn't release bug free games. Of course they don't have to go through an approval process so they get patches out fast while making everyone else wait months to fix their games.

Yorumi commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams GamePad Sound Pa...:

@SCAR392 I know but something is going on why did it take so long? The sound has been a problem since it launched last year and I know they said right away they were working on a patch then. Perhaps this happened but I find it hard to believe black forest got the patch rejected last year and just shelved the news for a year and now suddenly decided to try again.

I know the sonic all stars patch was delayed heavily for the wiiU version only by nintendo, and others have mentioned long approval times so this does fit the pattern.

Yorumi commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams GamePad Sound Pa...:

I really hope this is just a small oversight and not an insight into the working of NOA. I figured black forest had just forgotten about the wiiU but learning it was NOA that's unacceptable. Perhaps black forest didn't submit a new patch all this time, I'm willing to accept there could be more to the story. However, if NOA really let a broken game sit on their eshop for over a year, which reflected poorly on the dev through apparently no fault of their own, then that is just plain wrong. It's no wonder nintendo has such a terrible relationship with developers.

Glad we're finally getting the patch but serious NOA get your act together.

@Shinji they're really all good, 2 is my favorite, 3 is also one of the best megaman games made. The charge buster makes 4 a bit easy but it's still a really fun one. So um, yeah that probably didn't help. Get them all if you can, if not pick one you can't go wrong.

@Darknyht but again that's kind of confirmation bias there, getting through the story without issues is generally true of most games. Keep in mind pokemon is a recent example of a game with a game breaking bug in it that needed to be fixed fast, or smash 3ds banning people for using peach. A lot of times the patches for other things are to fix small glitches and things, not game breaking bugs. It's not always true, there is junk out there, but overall you can usually expect a 3rd party game to play just fine.

You notice how when glitches for nintendo games are shown all the response are something along the lines "oh it's just a tiny number of people it's nothing big." That's true it usually is small, but that's similarly true when glitches are shown for 3rd party games. If they were as broken as often as people claim they must be doing some amazing things with gameplay to get people to look past all the problems.

@Darknyht Well keep in mind a lot of nintendo games have had gamebreaking bugs in them. Pokemon x/y, skyward sword, twilight princess, we're still not sure what happened with smash wiiU etc. The quality thing is a good bit of confirmation bias actually. People don't want to see the quality problems in nintendo games but will highlight every single problem that surfaces in 3rd party games.

Notice how when digital foundry says anything about nintendo games people rage but quickly run to DF to prove how low quality 3rd party games are. It's not that there arn't junk, rushed games out there, I just think you'd be quite surprised at how exaggerated the issue is.

@Quorthon again you are massively off topic, you're ranting, slandering, and insulting people who have nothing to do with this discussion. If you're so confident in yourself go challenge any one of the scientists in the world to a debate and prove them wrong but NL is not the place for it. If you can't post without slandering people unrelated to the topic then don't post.

@TwilightV cutman and bombman are both easy stages. Cutman also has those big jumping stomping things that take off about half a bar of hp per hit. Chances are no one would have actually made it to cutman. Cutman is also a slightly harder fight than bombman though that's largely a moot point.

@Pierson just a note the ads in america are mostly only running in specific places. They basically run on disney channel and cartoon network and little else. Really the wiiU is only slightly above dismal in america. I see playstation and ms ads WAY more often than nintendo ads, and even then it's almost always 3ds. I think I've seen 2 wiiU ads so far.

@Quorthon you've got some sort of vendetta against these people to the point you bring it up over and over and over and over again in the most off topic place possible. It's an extremely complex issue and a video game forum isn't the place for it.

@Quorthon it gets old, you're basically spewing hatred to a group you don't know anything about just cause you don't like the occasional person in the group and it's massively off topic for the discussions. Simply put you are woefully ignorant of the issue and this is absolutely not the place to be bringing it up every single topic. This site is for discussing video games not attacking and slandering people.

Yorumi commented on Nintendo Titles Struggle to Make an Impact in ...:

Nintendo has to figure something out, advertising would definitely help but they need to get 3rd parties back. Why buy a wiiU for a bunch of rehashes. There's a few good games but not enough to make the console feel worth it and the more people forget about nintendo the harder it will be to sell future hardware.

@Quorthon do you have some bet with someone to bring up and bash creationists in every article posted on NL? I mean seriously you'd think they kidnapped your son and shot your dog the way you bring them up all the time.

After watching the video they actually did pretty well. Probably as good as any of us the first time we played. Sure we all look at it and say we could show them how it's done, but that's after playing the game for years. Who honestly beat a robot master on their first time ever playing megaman?

Games are easier today but a lot of these looked like people who arn't even serious gamers to begin with. Despite that they got pretty far and one even took off about a quarter of bombman's health without getting hit. The punch out video is more cringe worthy than this video.

Yorumi commented on Parent Trap: amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

@ACK actually I remember most people saying they wanted a skylanders type game with nintendo figures cause collecting the figures was nice and using them in games was neat too. As well as having the figures work across games.

When people pictured amiibo working in a nintendo universe I'm pretty sure no one envisioned unlocking a few costumes and little else.

Yorumi commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

@Volke93 well what I mean is when data is changed proper procedure is to store a backup, do the write, check the data is good then set a flag that says it's good. If the flag doesn't get set then the old data is rolled back. Usually this is doing with something like pointer swaps, basically a pointer to the memory address where the save is. You make the new save at a different address then when the save it done you change the pointer value. Since the pointer is written in about a nanosecond the chances of that being corrupted are essentially nonexistent. Even then you can have a secondary failsafe with the flag mentioned before just for the pointer so if it does get corrupted you can load the backup pointer.

There really should be multiple levels of failsafes on any end user product that prevent the system from ever getting to this state unless something truly malicious is being done.

#18

Yorumi commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

@Volke93 the thing is it is actually a bug when it's bricking systems and such. It's hard to say exactly what it is cause everyone has a different story but save data corruption is a bug too even when it's not bricking systems. It really should be doing backups and reverting if something goes wrong. All the more reason to do that when you have an auto-save feature.

Yorumi

#19

Yorumi commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

@ACK part of the problem though is that user error is something you can absolutely count on with consumer products. There should be all kinds of fail safes in the OS to prevent this from happening. It's one thing when save data gets corrupted or an install is bad and you just have to redo it. It's another issue entirely when it's bricking a system.

Nothing but the OS should have write access to any core OS file, and even then that write access should be limited to ONLY the applications that absolutely need it. No end user should be capable of bricking an OS without deliberately maliciously attacking it.

Yorumi

#20

Yorumi commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

It's interesting that it's capable of bricking the system. I know nothing is perfect but an OS really should have protections against that. I could understand the data for smash corrupting and being unplayable but the whole system? Games should really be loaded in their own environment and not have permission to touch memory outside their own. I just don't understand why it would be able to touch core system files.

Yorumi commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

@CTs_Lieutenant although this is recent it's worth pointing out nintendo released 3 nsmb games in less than a year, 3 zeldas in 2 years(and they're keeping pace next year it'll be 5 zeldas in 4 years), and is still releasing 2 versions of a pokemon game yearly, as well as you mentioned mario party. They're also releasing majora's mask on what it's 4th or 5th system?

Lets also keep in mind games like nsmb, mk, and such rarely make any sort of changes to the game. Mix up the items/levels and release the next version.

They may not be the worst but remind me how many mario games does the wiiU have in 2 years?

Yorumi commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

@Darknyht they don't necessarily have to push 3rd part software but it would help their image if they acknowledged it. It could be kind of a highlight reel type of commercial. Instead of only having ads that feature kids playing mario they could show all the "cool" games on the system in ads targeted at an older demographic than 10 year olds. "Hey look how cool you'll be playing monster hunter, or hyrule warriors, or bayonetta or splinter cell."

As to your point about whether sony/ms actually want to push 3rd party games, I think a case could be made that yeah they do. It broadens their customer base and adds value to the system showing the large variety of games. If someone says "I don't really like nintendo games," then they're never going to consider the wiiU. However, in sony's case if someone says "I don't like sony first party games," they could still turn around an see gta, cod, nisa games, dragon age etc.

So by advertising all these 3rd party games they're showing the value of their console and are much more likely to attract a customer than constantly repeating "hey we got mario and um...well we got mario."

Yorumi commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

@Quorthon My biggest fear is that it is the saturn and this black friday data seems to confirm it. I mean really the 360 beat it? I feel like if they were going to change course and salvage it we'd be seeing some of the fruit of that effort now. Consider on a 6 year cycle the successor to thew wiiU will likely be seen at E3 2016(5 year isn't unheard of so it's not out of the question for 2015 though we'd probably have seen rumors).

We already know the plans for 2015 and early indications of 2016 look downright depressing. Kind of tying into the point about miyamoto, present day miyamoto looks like a downright disaster for nintendo. Giant robot? My god that looked amazingly bad. Like so bad nintendo should be embarrassed for making it. We also know starfox is going to have a weird control scheme, not saying that will doom it but it's starting off on the wrong foot. What's worse is we know how the wii died in it's last 2 years, well that period begins in 2016 or 2017.

I'm with you I've been a nintendo gamer since I was 5 years old and got a NES for christmas so it's really sad to see them just limping along so much. It worries me that it's over, it's not worth buying console for a handful of must have nintendo games(i don't even consider mk must have), and if anything they're just showing signs of digging in and refusing to change.

You don't get the core gamer by having CoD on your system, you get them by offering value, features, and a variety of games. Proven by the black friday sales they've offered none of those.

Yorumi commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

It does make me wonder what nintendo's plan actually is. They've got a failing console, cutting advertising, and anecdotally from this comment section and others they're losing die hard nintendo fans. It may be too late to turn around the wiiU but they still need to find a way to sell it's successor in a few years. People are going to remember the wiiU, all the promises, 3rd party support, focusing on the core gamer, n64 VC, etc etc.

I know it's early but they're going to be starting next gen in an even bigger hole than they're in now if they don't at least attempt to change things with the wiiU.

Yorumi commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

@Light the problem with the "only for kids" image is nintendo is essentially embracing that image. Look at the limited advertising they actually do, it's a bunch of kids sitting around a console. Sure I wouldn't expect mario to be advertised as some hardcore mature game but they do have some 3rd party support. Bayonetta, splinter cell, assassin's creed, CoD, monster hunter etc. Nintendo could very easily be advertising the wiiU during things like football games, or on spike tv or something showing those games.

Consider the way the advertisements for the ps4 went for me one night on a single channel. In an hour period I saw a ps4 ad for GTAV, Little Big planet, and then destiny. All those comercials are fairly different too. GTAV is what you'd expect, LBP is a cutesy kiddy kind of ad, and you've probably seen destiny ads. Now granted I'm informed and not relying solely on tv ads but seeing that I'm thinking wow they have a diverse range of games on the ps4. Nintendo ad's? "Hey we're a kids system where you can sit with your family and play mario." erm...ok.

Meanwhile in the US noa still hates us. Seeing all these reviews has made me really want to play these games again. I don't have them and when they were said to have been going away I tried to get on an get them but they were already gone. Nintendo just doesn't like money anymore.

"Looking at games sold on individual formats, Rise of Lyric made 3rd place on the Wii U chart"

Is that not just a little bit terrifying? The game's reviews are beyond terrible, I've seen 2/10 reviews and the wiiU is so lacking it places 3rd?

@sinalefa when you get to higher difficulties the gameplay is surprisingly deep. I was a little afraid at first that the gameplay would get repetitive but this is my second most played game on the wiiU and I'm still playing(most played right now is monster hunter).

@Ryu_Niiyama I acknowledged that in my initial post. If this was a completely new character I'd say that's pretty cool. I mean what's next ice climbers paid dlc? Hey lets get wolf as dlc and throw in pichu while we're at it. Between ice climbers actually being cut, mewtwo as paid dlc, the gc controllers only working on one game it just sort of feels like they're trying to see how much they can get away with.

This is getting dangerously close to bad dlc if it doesn't already cross the line. I know he wasn't in brawl but come on you cut a character, fans of said character are upset, so nintendo now sells said character back to us. Plus this is announced in advance of the game(one with multiple clones already) that it reeks of withheld content for dlc.

Between the gamecube adapter, cutting content for an unrelated version, and now dlc of cut fighters nintendo is getting kind of sleezy here.

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@aaronsullivan we're arguing degree here, You're arguing it's a strong factor, I'm arguing it's a weak factor. It's not something that should be relied on, really at all. It's results have been wildly erratic at best. In a lot of ways it's having the reverse effect on the wiiU, depressing sales because people are sick of playing the same games they've played over and over.

Yorumi

#43

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

Let me just add, your point does have some degree of merit, specially with nsmb. What happened with the wii is nintendo caught a fluke, everyone bought a wii, then they saw these games they recognized from the past and bought them.

One reviewer of MK8 before launch asked the question "did everyone buy mkwii because they love mk or because they already owned a wii and recognized it." The answer was clearly the latter for both mk and nsmb. Nintendo interpreted this incorrectly as the former and they still havn't quite caught on that they were massively wrong.

Yorumi

#44

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@aaronsullivan well in terms of absolute sales MK8 is still selling worse than any other console MK game ever. What happened to the original 10mil MK fans you were using, let alone the 30 mil from the wii. I just think it's kind of logically contradicting, nostalgia was a large factor in getting people to buy mk and nsmb before but not now all the sudden?

Beyond that the ps4 which isn't using nostalgia is crushing the wiiU even after it's launched it's heavy hitters in nsmb and mk. Even after the trifecta is launched with smash I doubt it's going to catch the weekly sales for the ps4 which isn't using nostalgia and everyone claims has no games. Barring a miracle the wiiU is going to be dead last and at this point it's looking like it'll be lucky to catch the gamecube.

It just seems like if it really was a large factor in the wii it sure didn't have much holding power. I just don't think you can make the case, and even if you could for the wii, 3 out of 4 console generations for nintendo have been poor to devastating, if that's the best nostalgia can do they might want to try something different.

Yorumi

#45

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@aaronsullivan I think the biggest problem with suggesting nostalgia was a big part of wii sales is you have answer why it's suddenly not working anymore. Both for the 3ds(it's probably only going to sell half of what the ds did) and wiiU. Did everyone suddenly get infected with nostalgia for one single console generation and then suddenly get over it the next?

I'm not really suggesting it's not a factor but if it was so powerful wouldn't the wiiU be doing a whole lot better than it is considering it's games have relied almost solely on nostalgia?

Yorumi commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

If you can't see the difference between that and symphonia you havn't played symphonia. You're claiming MK has made such radical changes over the years that they're all completey different games but can't see the difference in the combat systems between graces and symphonia(and btw graces, symphonia, abyss, vesperia, hearts, xillia, and xillia 2 all have different combat systems).

I'll spell it out for you, symphonia uses a linear fixed combo system with a non-refilling tp gauge for artes, and jumping. Graces stays on a 2d plane but allows full motion, variable combos, refilling combo points for everything, and variable artes casting lengths.

You're proving my point that you're just writing things off because they're not made by nintendo. As I said smash is more of a button masher than tales is. And again if you're going to criticize something perhaps you should learn what it is you're actually criticizing.

And again think about this, you're saying tales games never change based on your experience with one tales game if you've even played it cause again it's not turn based.

@WWammy it has nothing to do with your personal enjoyment it has to do with a statement that is blatantly 100% false. It is totally untrue, you do not take turns in a tales game, it's an arpg with AI controlled party members. Whatever you think you've played it wasn't tales.

Yorumi commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

@kyuubikid213 the 3rd parties made trash argument is only partially true. Yes they made a lot of trash on the wiiU, but they also made quality games. Games like splinter cell blacklist, lego city, sonic racing, and rayman were largely ignored. Beyond that this problem isn't just a wiiU thing, it goes back generations. Historically, even while factoring in install base, 3rd party games sell much less on nintendo platforms than non-nintendo platforms. They've known for a while nintendo fans don't buy anything but nintendo games.

You can even see this in the comment sections of sites like this. How many times do you see people putting nintendo up on a pedestal saying they're better than the entire rest of the gaming industry? The eviscerate 3rd parties for doing the same things nintendo is guilty of. They even make such delusional statements like this I've seen multiple times: "the transformations in sonic racing didn't affect kart racing at all but the gliders in MK radically changed kart racers and is such an amazing idea."

Sadly that kind of thinking is far to prevalent on nintendo systems to allow 3rd parties any real chance.
