I would laugh so hard and loud if Nintendo put up this ballot not to determine a character for DLC in Smash, but to get everyone groveling to put their character in. It makes Nintendo the "king" again, like in the old days, and that's exactly what they did with amiibo. It would be absolutely delicious.

I mean, this can only end badly, but in a very entertaining way.

The only thing i'm wary of is the mystery items, since it could be anything. Odds are good it's just to clear warehouse stock, but I enjoy grab bag stuff anyway, and wasn't more expensive than the usual pre-order stuff.

This is definitely a hard game to review. On one hand, you can tell a lot of love went into it, and it emulates those old "electronic football" games well. On the other, it is just 3 extremely simple games. If you're not pulled in by the screenshots, you probably will not like the game.

@Funbunz I agree. I know it had to do with picking music from the earlier games as part of the decision, but three of those tracks hardly qualified as music. It didn't help that the west hadn't gotten SMT 1 & 2 at the time. At least the Jakyou Manor music with the real organ was really cool.

I went ahead and got this bundle, just for a change of pace.

This will be the second EO game I won't preorder, first being the mystery dungeon game. What a disappointment. It's going to take something like what Persona Q did with their special edition to get me to preorder the game.

And now I know why the SMT developers never considered making their protagonists female. What's interesting is the comparisons to Samus and Link. Before, Samus was just like Link; she didn't talk or have much of a personality, just got the work done. It wasn't until you beat the game that you realized she was female. It ultimately didn't matter in the game's story, that part was specifically for the players. Seeing the uproar over female Links is hilarious, since it wouldn't matter for the stories there, either. It would only affect the players.

argh4430 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Highlights Nintendo's Strengt...:

Even if Nintendo makes the most powerful console after the Wii U, even if it is more powerful than the next Playstation or XBox, it will still not help Nintendo win back 3rd parties. Their reputation is nearly completely shot. It was a process that started at the tail-end of the SNES era and goes all the way through their hardware consoles. They could change it, of course, but it would require them to change the way they think, and I don't see that happening with their current management. And they need those 3rd parties, if not for their immediate sales, but for the long-term. Having years with just two or three releases from major 3rd parties is a big black eye to the consumers. Indies may be great, but they don't have the visibility of the major companies, sadly.

Well, at least Reggie seems hopeful, and not just blindly throwing out blind optimism. I don't like where Nintendo is heading, and it will affect their handheld systems as well if this keeps up.

I looked at all the screenshots, and it seems only a few natives are wielding something that looks like bows. They mostly wield pickaxes, which just seems to make them look less intimidating. Maybe they're neutral?

I just noticed in your thumbnail shot that the fafnir knight looks a lot like the princess class from EO3. Considering that EOU1 had the "main character, not SMT protagonist" as a gunner, maybe a precedent for including a class from the next game?

argh4430 commented on Sega Is Bringing Imageepoch’s RPG Stella Gl...:

@CaviarMeths If you think of the game as a really repetitive and "fanservicey" version of Punch-Out, then it's just a mediocre game. Imageepoch isn't exactly known for quality games, after all.

I still don't know if this particular game would be up my alley just on what's written here so far, so it would help to see what others would think about it. Gotta keep my expectations low, after all.

@TossedLlama Exactly what I was thinking. Fans did the legwork for translating Mother 3, and that game still didn't get an official english translation. SE is not going to change their minds about not localizing it, if anything, they would send a cease-and-desist letter to these people. Look what happened to the fan project "chrono trigger flames of eternity."

argh4430 commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (North America):

Not getting these games, as I am working on the games I already have, and older games I haven't gotten yet. Just wanted to throw out how good Master Reboot is. My only caveat is that the game plays in first-person, with some platforming parts to it, and those give me motion sickness really easily.

argh4430 commented on Meme Run Disappears from the Wii U eShop:

I wonder why it took so long. If it was for legal reasons, then Nintendo just proved they don't care to look for those kind of things in 3rd party, indie titles. If it's for quality control, they will have egg on their face until they remove all the obvious shovelware from the eshop.

@Fletcher-Mobot Why would you want to be associated with something that was intentionally designed to be malicious? SPIKEY WALLS was made because cheap shovelware was getting 'da monies and attention on miiverse, and made with no heart, and yet you want to associate your product with that!?

I think this article proves that Nintendo couldn't get new customers, so they had to milk the existing consumer base to drive up profits. Expect to see more of this in the future until Nintendo figures out how to get new blood in.

If whoever posted this wanted a true and better "Mario comparison to something" that actually hits upon something Nintendo-related, they should have gone with Seanbaby's article on cracked.com using Super Mario Bros. to explain World of Warcraft. Not only is it really funny, it's also topical (if old, but still a better choice).

I think we're getting really close to a unified OS, possibly open one. And that the handheld device would have more connectivity with the console. We will see cross-buy with the MvsDK game, Smash 4 using the handheld as a controller, and cross-saves with MH3U.

argh4430 commented on Review: Battleminer (3DS eShop):

I went ahead and got the game on release, just to give a clone a chance. It is quite repetitive alright, with none of the charm of Minecraft. But it certainly is nice for several minutes at a time. If anything, these devs can afford to be cheap with these clones because the real deal is not coming to dethrone them.

Well, I already have Battleminer, so i'm not in a rush to get another clone, but i'll see just how close it gets. Battleminer, despite looking like and playing like Minecraft, is no Minecraft at all, but the combat was fun.

I just want the company to market itself more. When I learned that one of my coworkers loved Mario Kart, and I mentioned to her that Mario Kart 8 released this summer, she yelled, "What?! When?!" I told her it was for Wii U, and she stared at me blankly. This should not happen, not everyone follows the Nintendo news pipelines. They need to take their console seriously and actually market the freaking thing.
