Zatioichi commented on Despite the Rumours, Nintendo NX Will Not be A...:

Glad to see them come out against the rumor right away. I doubt NX is going to run on Android but I think it'll be a Nintendo Framework hybrid that'll maybe let you run iOS and android apps. It could be a streaming machine for Wii/U/3ds but then there's the QoL stuff they have that has to work with it too. That "X" is what's teasing me..but I'm confident that they're going to use their framework just cause it's pretty amazing and would, probably, link the 3ds and U.

Right now I'm stuck on mega glalie with 11 gems, haven't spent a dime but I bought Pokémon Battle Trozei since Nintendo has given me about the same price in gems. Figured that's kinda the point

Doing what? Sueing people for using copyright images and characters or blocking used games?

@Kroisos
No you're right its not by law but morally it is IMO. I don't think the first sale doctrine should apply to media like games, movies, eBook etc just cause it just sounds like youd be buying plastic but you still need to buy the rights to play. As far as used games goes i don't think you should be able to sell them unless you published them. You should be able to loan em out and swap em but there shouldn't be any profit in it.

Edited to add the bit about buying plastic lol

Not all things but when its made clear in the user agreement you can't do it then it is. If you can have total ownership with no agreements with a outside party then you can sell it
@TingLz
Those are all things you can have total ownership on, you can sell your home/car but you can't sell the land your house comes on if you don't own it.

At the end of the day ownership trumps all and because they don't have totally ownership of the content they're using they violated the terms and agreements. Honestly I want to see Nintendo act out and be the real "bad guy" that most people want to make them out as. I hate when companies sue us consumers but I think its time for lightning to start raining from heaven..

Look at gamestop's business practice and you tell me that its not illegal. Just put yourself in the devs place of only getting paid once for doing all the hard time consuming work to have someone make PURE profit multiple times while you don't see a dime of it. When you buy a game you are only buying the rights to play it as well as the right to have one backup of it. It'd be different if the game when back to the companies and GS paid something to get the right to resell. GameStop found a way to pirate and get paid from it..just cause there's a second hand license doesn't mean its still morally wrong.

Also why would you stick up for a corporation that honestly doesn't care about the people as much as their money? Wanna know their new motto is "Protect the Family" and I hate to break it to you but you're not family.

@FullbringIchigo
This guy gets it, honestly I don't see why the big three doesn't just sue companies like GAMESTOP out of bidness and handle secondhand sales themselves..

Nintendo isn't doing anything wrong yet this is just going to fuel the 'Nintendo Sucks' train. They're giving these people a better option than being sued for copyright infringement IMO. I'm sorry but I feel like people like Sakurai, who work themselves almost into the hospital aren't okay with it, I can't speak for anyone but if it was me I wouldn't feel Let's (get)P(aid)lays are fair to me when MY TIME, for everyone saying they should get paid for making the vids, is worth less when I CREATED the content and when let's players are padding their pockets with AD revenue while funding those same companies...it's bull no matter how you spin it.

I'm sorry but its bs to think you can not only piggyback off other peoples work then justify it as "free advertising" but to add insult to injury by telling to get with the times. I just find it hard to believe that devs are just okay with this..they spend years working hard and once all the hard work is over these people just come in to collect a easy cosy check. What I'd do with this is raise it to a 50% kick back for anyone that's using our games/images, kick that money to devs/translation and if you are a part of our program you kick back 20% AND you get special content (special betas to show off upcoming games, videos from people like Reggie or Iwata doing funny to add to their videos, and maybe even a chance to appear in your region's Nintendo direct). To cry that Nintendo wants some, a more than fair amount, of the money you're making off them I'd think you were playing games more for the cash than for the hobby.

Zatioichi commented on You Can't Count Nintendo Out, Says Activision CEO:

My issue with this statement is the lack of support and I'm not talking about just for Wii U. For starters they can't say anything about IPs and leave Crash just rotting.. And if you claim to support the system show it. I don't want Duty as much as I want Pitfall for SNES/Genesis (Tony Hawk Pro Skater would be a dream). They have a catalog of games that they could get on the VC if they really wanted to. At least they aren't Ubi or EA who are just barking from the side of their necks IMO.

Zatioichi commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:

@midnafanboy
What if it's a way to generate more buzz? Have everyone thinking these are the characters only to have minds blown when the game comes out. What if it was an earlier build that was going to be scrapped before it leaked? I still think it's too soon to confirm at least for me. "Trust half of what you seen and none of what you hear."

Zatioichi commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:

Okay so call me crazy but I'm still on the fence about this. It could very well be true but couldn't you also fake this kinda easily? Couldn't you just a green screen like with movies and then just toss it footage from a brawl mod? It sounds dumb I know but we never see hand operating the controls in any of the videos. Either way we'll see in less than 6 weeks so I wouldn't stress to much over this.

Zatioichi commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

After watchdogs no one at ubi can say anything about not feeling the magic.. How about they support the system with a bit more effort before anyone there has anything like this to say. Don't even get me started on uplay either..prats.

Zatioichi commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@hylianhalcyon
And in both cases instead of going after a branch(videos games, music, movies, ect.) You should go after the roots.(People) Just like racism YOU KNOW when someone is being racist by what and how something is said. Samus isn't entering any games shaking her butt and chest giving you a bed room eye is she? Nothing she's doing is making her a sex object at all. Im not brushing it off at all. I'm saying that its just a game when you see what's happening to women and men in the real world. Having a go at samus is just dragging a hero through the mud just for existing. To me Samus was ment to identify with girls back then to say "Hey it's not just men that go around and save the world." And for boys " Hey women can be and are just as able as bad donkey as any man hero." But as it stands some shorts and a shirt has more weight that the things she stands for.

The issue is one sided as it doesn't bring up sexism as a whole. If its not okay for women its not okay for mean, this a HUMAN issue. People do this to each other everyday and it's people that need to unite and fix it. Society needs to understand that you're doing this to someone's daughter or mother, to another human life and that's not okay. Once we drop certain stigmas things will change but again it has to start and end with us, not data.

Zatioichi commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@hylianhalcyon
I'm pretty sure if that was the case it would just be out right said and done. Again her vaules and morals as well as her looks all stem from the same sources. On top of that society doesn't speak for everyone or everything, certainly not for me. I think this is a waste of time when much worse things are happening to both women and men out there. Sexism isn't just a one sided issue but that's how it's coming out concerning video games. Games aren't scapegoats or platforms for an agenda but for having fun and this sexism stuff isn't FUN. To me when you go after stuff like this you take validity from the issue itself.

Zatioichi commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@hylianhalcyon
But it's a video game..saying things like that kinda devalves other's opinions and feelings(like myself). No one is saying that it's not a problem, it is, but is really going after video games going to fix it? It's been said a few times but stories like this get a lot of views because people are going to agrue about it. Sexism goes both ways and honestly games don't have anything to do with our social problems, that's why it doesn't matter IMO because this isn't the proper OUTLET for a serious and honest discussion.

Edit: I also wanted to say that Nintendo Life and their partner sites are fantastic sites ran by really honest and upstanding staff and that wasn't meant for any of you guys. You post fun, awesome news and trustworthy reviews. You guys rock!

Zatioichi commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

Honestly everyone needs to remember that this is about A VIDEO GAME first off. How I feel about Samus is that she's always been a hero. She's a fantastic warrior AND she happens to be attractive however Im not playing her for her looks. Sex is a powerful weapon, just look at Bayonette, she uses her sexy body, literally, to destroy enemies yet she keeps it classy and has respect for herself. For me I've always though of the reason for her clothes before the Zero Suit was because she's a bounty hunter..I highly doubt a woman like Samus Aran thinks twice about 'skimpy clothes' when she has a WHOLE PLANET trying to murder her. Instead of what she's wearing why isn't anyone talking about what she STANDS for? See everyone wants to point fingers and name call without seeing it from both sides..are you really going to wear hot heavy clothing that restricts your movement and makes you uncomfortable? Honestly it's stuff that happens in our world that is slowly choking the life out of games and has been the past few years. Video games are turning into another thing for people to fight over and that's some bovine snacks frankly. Play the games or don't, just don't ruin it for everyone.

Zatioichi commented on Hyrule Warriors Confirmed for 14th August in J...:

@Spoony_Tech See I loved it, i had held off on it til it was like 10 bucks so when I got it and started playing I just loved how fast pace it was. My only complain is the first person mode but that's only cause I perfer 3rd person Metroid. So far I have no real problem with the storyline but I know know it's cool to rag on this game so I dunno at the end of the day.

Zatioichi commented on Hyrule Warriors Confirmed for 14th August in J...:

I'm glad Eiji Aonuma is going to be there to keep an eye on things. This game is kinda important to the Zelda series as we FINALLY get to take part in the Hyrulian Wars. A lot of things need to be explained so hopefully there's a nice mix of Dynasty Warriors' action and Zelda's gameplay with a nice Team Ninja Touch. And for all those screaming Other M stop, it's a matter of taste but Team Ninja did great on the gameplay..

Zatioichi commented on Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal World Duel Carnival Is On The ...:

I just checked out the game play and honestly it's such a let down.
From what I've seen so far Konami would have been better off doing a Nightmare Troubadour 3ds remake. In a perfect world they would use the manga story line of every game but as it this game should have been released on DS. At least there was use of 3d..I was really excited about having a yugioh game on 3ds but this just was a let down. I guess it'll be cool to play with the new cards through.

I never knew this thing existed at all but this left me with two thoughts. First, I reaalllly miss my Game.com..first handheld I owned that let you pop in two carts. Second the idea of having games in your wallet is too good! Nintendo really should start making more AR games as well as creating some NFC games that come on cards.

Zatioichi commented on Investment Expert Feels Nintendo Earnings Miss...:

Well I understand its his job and all but that doesn't really mean much to me personally. Sure you can have all the data but you can't really tell what is going to happen next..but forgot alllll that for a second, why is it that everyone is gunning for Nintendo's IPs as well as why does smartphones and tablets keep being mentioned? I don't know about anyone else but playing games on phones SUCK HARD not to even go into allll the other problems with that( mainly size and space issues). This needs to stop..Nintendo is the ONLY company that is JUST a game company and always has been, why not support that instead of curse and doom being overall just a prat...

Just WOW! Nintendo should just start forming its own 3rd parties since everyone is jumping ship..I still don't understand the logic behind it.. Everyone is SCARED to do something different and Nintendo is proof that being different isn't okay..

Zatioichi commented on EA Outlines Its Reasons for Lack of Wii U Support:

So EA im not a gamer? Funny cause I've been gaming for almost 20 years..but why can't they make a version of their fancypanted engine and make it run on the WiiU? If it's so underpowered and all that what's stopping them. But oh we can still make games for the 360 AND PS3 but oh their focused on the "next gen". Hmmm I figured generations went by when systems are released not on the specs, guess I was wrong right EA? Nintendo was around before EA was even thought about yet they have the stones to openly respect a so called business partner.. I'll never by another EA again knowingly.

Zatioichi commented on EA: We're Not Writing Off Wii U:

At this point EA is nothing but talk at this point. They didn't keep their word, employees publicly trashing the WiiU, AND thinking that 4 games is more than good? Seriously the amount of disrespect is not okay..this is the kind of behavior that shouldn't be allowed and I don't understand why anyone is okay with that. As big as EA is they should have twice as many games on the WiiU as they do now. But just the fact that they don't want to put anything out on it cause its not selling well is just stupid..wouldn't you at least halfway try to boost sales by, get this, making games.

That's it but whatever, the day will come when EA will die and Nintendo will still be here.
