Achoo commented on Masahiro Sakurai Once Again Highlights The Pos...:

All the criticism this guy gets, after delivering some of, if not the best fighting games available is unjustified. People complaining about him just sound like a bunch unrealistic, out of touch, spoiled brats. The guy has done a fantastic job and should be commended.

I feel like he needs a pat on the back, but instead gets a punch in the face daily

Achoo commented on Super Mario amiibo Series Can Now Be Preordere...:

I prefer the smash one's personally. Generally more dynamic poses and seem to have more attitude, which makes sense given the game they are based on. Just missing Little Mac still though, so very sad as I can't find him anywhere

@VanillaLake My guess is that N64 games just take a little more work to port to the gamepad than NES or SNES, and from what I read in the past, Nintendo decided those reasorces were better spent in other areas due to anyone wanting to play N64 games on the Wii U are not prohibited.
What it seems people are asking for is not to be able to play N64 games on their Wii U, but to be able to play them on the gamepad, which is something that will cater only to a small crowd due to many people happy to just play them on the TV in Wii mode.
I am not saying it is ideal, I am just stating the logic behind Nintendo's decision

@electrolite77 Yes so would I, and I have not bought any N64 games either as I will wait for Wii U VC releases. I am just stating why it is not a priority for Nintendo as I have read from them in the past, and to be frank, I see their point. If someone was just interested in playing the games they are available for them to do so

@RedYoshi999 They haven't bothered with N64 as you can still buy them through the Wii mode eshop. Only thing they would add by bringing them out on Wii U VC is gamepad support...Is this really what everyone is crying out for? Added gamepad support?
I know your going to say "HD graphics" but that ain't happening. When Nintendo does remakes, they do them properly, like WW HD or Majoras Mask. No upscales. It is not Nintendo's style.
I understand the outcry for GameCube but not N64

Little Kings Story
Pikmin 1/2
Dead Space Extraction
Zack and Wiki
Project Zero 2
Other M
Last Story
Silent Hill: Shattered Memories
Fragile Dreams

Very happy about Sin and Punishment already having been announched

Scalping is not as bad as some of you make out. I know it is frustrating to not get what you want, I still want Little Mac, but don't blame the players blame the game. It might mean the difference between some people getting a take out that night or eating beans on toast. They wouldn't do it if they were loaded you know, it would be too much hassle.

@Bushido_Fai No no, Nintendo have not confirmed that any have been discontinued...just retailers have. I suspect that they will be making more of Marth, infact wasn't he available again earlier today?
They might make a separate set for the new games though is another possibility, rather than making more of the smash collection. It all depends on who is doing the manufactoring and if they still have the molds etc I think. Do they have the same materials in the production line? If it is a lot of work to start remaking them, i doubt they will, but if easy then sure.
Can't really blame Nintendo for this. All signs were pointing to them not selling well like the Wii U. The last thing they wanted was lots of stock left over not being sold. They probably weren't prepared to take that risk. It would have taken some insite to see how popular they have become.

Just like all the other auctions of this type, the buyer rarely pays, if ever. But that is not 'exciting' news so I guess doesn't get reported.
This kind of journalism really is scrapping the bottom of the barrel guys. Are you really that light on ideas?

For me Bayonetta and Smash. I vote for smash just because of the scale of it. Bayonetta is amazing, and totally worthy also, but for this smash it just seems they threw the kitchen sink at it, and that can't be praised highly enough.

Talk about stoking the fire! Sometimes I wonder if this website wants Nintendo to succeed, I really do.
This feature is scraping the bottle of the barrel, and that is saying something for a media site.

@minotaurgamer I disagree with everything you said...and calling Pikmin crap, well, that is just crossing the line! Pikmin 3 is just amazing. So much time spent on it personally. It does require lateral thinking though, so I can understand it might not be to more direct peoples taste. But to call it crap is very shortsighted. Just sayin'

Achoo commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

@ikki5 I am not sure what this means "you're telling people to get their act together for people that ordered it and now are not going to get it because it was cancelled due to stock?", but I did not tell "people to get their act together". I was quoting what other people have said Nintendo should do.

Also, I think you cannot blame Nintendo for preorders. I think it is the retailers responsibility to check how many they will be supplied with, or even what the production run will be, so that they can curb the preorders they take, otherwise they are taking preorders on the ASSUMPTION enough will be supplied. The blame for me falls with the retailers. If you cannot guarantee it you have no right to be taking preorders.
I have already covered why it is justified for Nintendo to make a limited run of this adapter. Put in the same shoes I would do the same

Achoo commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:

No-one bought the Wii U. They had many left over. They are not going to make that mistake again. It is better for them to put out enough that if it doesn't sell well the hit they take will not be that bad.
Everyone on here complaining about Nintendo "needing to get their act together", but in truth, they have given many different options for controllers in the game, and have even considered the 'hard core' players by bringing out this adapter. They could have just as well left it being pro controller only.
So boo hoo. You can't play with the gamecube controller for a while. Just use one of the other controller methods available until more are produced. When Nintendo see the demand for it they will produce more, my guess is they will be here by January.

Achoo commented on Feature: Five Nintendo Games Perfect For Multi...:

Wii Sports Club is much more fun than the original. Got bad reviews for internet lag, but that depends on the connection. If both players have a relatively decent connection then no problems. Problems only occur when I meet with someone with a bad connection. Nintendo should just check the connection of both players, and if one players is much lower than the other, do not connect them. Simple. Still a really fun game that should be on here.
Then maybe Wonderful 101? Have 5 player multiplayer.
But my personal favorite is Pikmin 3 bingo battle. I know on 2 player, but still, if your stuck with just one other person, or even 2 and rotate, this is great fun. We keep coming back to it!

I think it is a nice bit of fan service to include it, and still negative words such as "is tempered", and "will only" and "the catch" in this article.
It seems to me Nintendo threw everything at this game, but I guess there just ain't pleasing the media these days

Achoo commented on Feature: Bayonetta - Creating Gaming's Combati...:

@Ryu_Niiyama Why bother giving a score at all then? I've not thought about it much, but from my experience it seems people are becoming more and more dependant on reviews, and giving it a score encourages people to just 'skip to the end'. if it don't get above a 8 it is probably passed over, like what happened with W101.
As a reviewer though, I suppose it would be difficult to drop the score system, as readers want a quick easy out and will go elsewhere to get a score if your site doesn't give one.
That's enough from me anyway, I got uni work I should be doing

@ThomasBW84 Yes I tried to find a more current game than Mario Wii as an example, but couldn't be bothered to go through them all until I found one. Even so, oranges and apples aside, it is still claiming it is the best of it's genre, and Bayo is not then?
Probably best to leave it there anyway, obviously this is your profession and I am but a layman. My apologises, I did not mean to cause any upset.

@ThomasBW84 OK. I was just curious because of this feature being published. Would it have got this feature had it got a lower metacritic? Be honest.
Also, just checking metacritic now quickly, and I notice you gave New Super Mario Bros. Wii a straight 10. First one that came up. Seems a little off maybe? I've only played the demo of Bayonetta, but just that was enough for me to realise it has a LOT of love gone into it. Is it really THAT simple?

Obsessive to the extreme. These are probably people with youtube channels or collectors who would feel incomplete without it. I find the mentality of the collector funny, as when broken down, the only reason they sell for this much is because they are 'limited'. Put the scarf on a store shelf and it wouldn't sell for $5 in large numbers. At the end of the day, it is just a scarf.

M Sunshine or F-Zero GX for me. I think Metroid Prime might be a bit dated by now. First person shooters have come a long way since. It would still be good, but more for a nostalgia sake than anything else
