Achoo commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

@DThrow_UAir True I agree about Battletoads, the genre is just boring to me and so it is not fair to say it is not good. However I did like brawlers when I was younger and played most of them. Battletoads was just another one for me, with its main draw being its excellent soundtrack and quirkiness. It was really hard, which normally I think is a good thing in genres such as shmups, but brawlers not so much.

I never said that every game 'has to have the same control style as Mario Kart' at all. I said Diddy Kong racer did not have as tight controls as Mario kart. In other words it is not as accuarate at responding to inputs. The same for donkey Kong country. The amount of times I thought I was going to land on a edge only to miss because it is too hard to judge. This is poor control implimentation and never happens in Mario platformers. Graphic were a cool gimmick for the time however sure, but I tihnk this is partly the reason the hit boxes are so hard to judge personally, so they came at this expense.

@DThrow_UAir Yeah I'm going to go ahead and disagree with you there. Apart from Goldeneye, I think the rest are overrated.

I can still play Mario World, but going back to Donkey Kong Country is painful. Even Goldeneye just took the next step really in the FPS genre, the slowdown in perfect dark is terrible. I don't like brawlers so Battletoads is out, mindless games. Diddy kong racing has lose controls compared to Mario kart, I didn't get on well with it. It was the Sonic Racing of it's day...a good game, but a bit below the best in terms of controls. That pretty much sums Rare up actually, as their platformers were much the same.

This to me seems like a bunch of people getting exited over old games...yes old games even in their day that were not quite as good as the best, just close. I think anyone who hasn't played them who wasn't from the era will be disappointed with their purchase

I couldn't care less personally. Let's be honest, Rare are over-rated, even back in the Nintendo days. Only game I want to play by them is Conkers, and that because of the infamous song and language really more than anything.

Achoo commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

@Damo That is what I was referring to. I thought such a large preview was not needed personally, and like I said PS2 visuals cannot be defended, that seems like a snipe. I mean will you not get another copy of the game for review purposes? Could it not be conceivable that the frame rate will be been established by then etc? But it won't matter if it has been now, as it has already been planted in a lot of people's heads not to get the game, you have given the impression it is already rubbish. It is like your preview was a review for some! That is not giving the game a proper chance imo, and is unfair

@Damo Whatever man, you still seemed to make big news of it when you could have saved it for the review. A bad review would have been enough, no need to single it out and give it such bad press like that imo. And PS2 visuals? Come on

Doesn't surprise me. I was pretty annoyed Nintendolife jumped on the hate bandwaggon so soon, publishing big articles about it when before the review, and therefore creating this negative feeling towards the game.

At least give it a chance. Bring out your review when ready sure, but don't go sabotaging the game like that. It actually made me seek out other websites to get my Nintendo news from to be honest. Sometimes I think this website will publish anything just to have something to say

Achoo commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

@Thomas Whitehead ..Do we really need an article like this at the moment? I realise you guys have got to write about something but jeeze, I'd like to go on the internet without reading comments by all the nerds bashing Nintendo for a under powered console we know nothing officially about yet. It could be a handheld for all we know, power should really be the last thing you are writing on the NX imo, it is not interesting.

Achoo commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

@Kirk Smash is not a game, it is an esport! It has more in common with chess than street fighter. If you only spent a few minutes with chess I'm sure you'd get nowhere either.
However I do think smash benefits from having mates around to play with all the time, like most teenagers do (you probably did when playing street fighter). As rivalries start to form and everyone starts improving it is a great experience

Achoo commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

@Kirk That is common for most people at first, especially if older generation. It is not until 50 hours in that the game starts to shine. I thought the same thing at first, but the mess clears up as you gain control of the madness.

Achoo commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

@Kirk I don't think there is any issue with smash's control method, that is what makes it fun! I much prefer smash to street fighter. Street fighter is dependent on inputting specific controls perfectly, where as smash is more about the platforming and mind games.
If anything I think it will show the opposite and show how dated street fighter is now.

Generic character. Why not give us something new like Bayonetta or Porfessor Gadd? I have played Ryu multiple times in many games already, so not hyped for this at all really.
While they are at it why not just add Ken as well, or Law from Tekken? Oh wait, because they would be boring as well.

@Sakuraichu ah ok, I think I know where you are going with this...scalpers can not buy more than one?

Yeah I get that, but if one person buy's 20, or if 20 people buy 1, if they all have the intent to sell it makes no difference. Lots of people will just buy one of each to sell and still at least double their money

Achoo commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Announces Pre-Order...:

@Alundra-1998 Yeah I get your logic for someone who has not decided if they want them or not yet, but it just seemed to me Charlosa had already, and knew he/she would just be buying to sell...but whatever...buy to sell for all I care, as long as it is just one! I just don't like people who buy lots and lots and who are not actually interested in them apart from to make money. They suck

Achoo commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Announces Pre-Order...:

@couscorp Not necessarily. My guess is the seller just got someone they know to buy some to create the illusion of them selling fast. Why would someone pay £85 for one when they could buy them from game.co.uk for £15.99 still? Or even just another listing on ebay for £40? Still outrageous but cheaper than £85. I don't believe it.

Edit: It seems game have sold out, but there are still cheaper options available on ebay.

@Peach64 Yeah, in my view whoever runs the website needs to be fired. They will have cost Nintendo lots in PR alone, which will translate to money one way or another. We all know how Nintendo fans love to complain, and there is going to be a lot of disappointed fans after this.

@couscorp I don't know if it is even legal for them to cancel for ordering more than one if they do not specify this before-hand. I think it is just a blunder by whoever is listing them, they just forgot to put a 1 per customer limit on and now some greedy ass who probably owns a shop somewhere has bought up all the stock to sell in their store is my guess

Achoo commented on GAME Launches UK Pre-Orders for Splatoon amiib...:

@Jazzer94 Sadly the way the world works is that any item will be priced at what most people are willing to pay, and most are willing to meet Games price, so in a way, they would be stupid not to.
However, they may be sacrificing loyalty and reputation for this, but lets be honest, they lost those long ago so they might as well just sell them for more.
It's all about profits these days, no-care cares about the customers
