Artwark commented on Masahiro Sakurai Praises the Achievements of S...:

@Grumblevolcano there are lots of Digital Stores that do the same as Steam. The original Rayman isn't on Steam but its out at GOG which is odd because Steam also supports Dosbox like GOG so why can't it be ported to Steam?

The only reason why a lot of people prefer Steam is because of how accessible it is. Price cuts are frequent in Steam and the summer sales are ridiculously cheap. So with that in mind, of course Steam is the best.

Honestly though, even if Nintendo does a lot like how Steam does, it won't change the fact that getting games for their systems will still be time consuming and the virtual console seriously needs improvement and I'll admit that Steam does emulation better than Nintendo although I wonder why Steam can't port Sega Master System games as well seeing that its made by SEGA.



Artwark commented on Former Sega of America CEO Talks Out on the Co...:

I don't get SEGA at all. They are times where they do incredibly stupid decisions like Boom but then when games like Valkyria Chronicles are MADE by them, it just makes me wonder....just what is SEGA trying to tell us?



Artwark commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Curse Developers Discuss...:

At the very least, its nowhere as horribly done as Mass Attack. The only personal issue I had with triple deluxe is that they never labeled where you got the rare keychains from or if its a level that has it or not.



Artwark commented on Yes, People Are Still Making NES Games In 2015:

That's nothing. Homebrew games even show up for genesis, dreamcast and I think its also SNES......not sure about that.

Its sad because if they want to appeal to a wide audience, they'd port this on Wii U or 3DS!



Artwark commented on Talking Point: New Nintendo 3DS, Operation Fac...:

@Zodiak13 the reason you see rants like this is because of how others get better stuff than us. Personally, I don't mind the exclusive XL NA at all as long as its out there and we get the option. I think playing games on a big screen is really nice. Granted, pixellation can rarely be a bothersome but still.

Most of the time, Nintendo of America makes decisions that no one wants them to do at all like what was the reason to not bring Mario and Wario from Japan to US? or like what was the reason to clone Doki Doki Panic to Super Mario Bros 2? Or even better, what's the reason of censoring poor lovely Tharja? :$



Artwark commented on Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U):

What do you mean that the visuals does not implement the gameplay? Lots of games that have great visuals don't implement with the gameplay at all. How is that a letdown and a missed opportunity?

Now I could say that I'll get the game no matter what but seeing as how right you guys were about triple deluxe (not that its a bad game but it could've been better.) I'm a bit skeptical about this one........ :(

This is one of the reason why having a score judges a game so much and one that I seriously wish that reviewers would find another way of reviewing games with no scores in mind.



Artwark commented on The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D Tops Jap...:

The fact that the New XL outsells the New 3DS further proves the point that NA made a good decision. Granted it all depends on the style and fashion you choose to play but in the end, if something works, they put more of that instead of the other.



Artwark commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

I agree Tom. There's just something about handhelds that makes me care about them more than consoles. If its one favorite thing I love about handhelds, I can play anywhere I want.

The only console that I deeply value is the Gamecube but that's just it. The DS, GBA and 3DS all have the games that I want and would want to get it someday. I still have lots of games that I want to play for GBA and DS. Somehow I feel satisfied whenever I play games on a portable system.



Artwark commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

@Yorumi Well if that's how you say what open world is, then the Super Mario series pretty much has that. 64 allows you to explore the worlds freely and doing some of the missions is optional so is Sunshine, Galaxy 1 and 2.

While its true that a lot of gamers don't really focus on story based quests when playing open world games, part of the fun lies in the story quests so you can get better upgrades to ease exploration and discovery.



Artwark commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

When you think about it, there really isn't much of difference between open world and linear.

Super Metroid has sections that are linear and while the game is still open ended, you still have to defeat the bosses required to reach the final stage which itself is linear.

I think the better question to ask here is whether it will tweak the formula while still having that Zelda feel. If they were to make side quests that can be done without the requirement of a specific item (depending on the side quest anyways) That would be a step up because there always is a trading quest that gives you the best item very late in the game and that requires a lot of backtracking. But if they did it so that you can do backtracking but can also get the item another way, that would be awesome.



Artwark commented on Guide: How to Complete a System Transfer from ...:

So when I got my XL, I did the transfer from my old 3ds to the XL where my old 3DS has the 32 GB card and I put that card to the XL.

So now when I do the transfer from the XL to the new one, do I have to say yes to the old one that other SD cards were used or just say no?



Artwark commented on Sneaky Ninja Infiltrates Kickstarter:

After looking at it, there's only one thing that bothers me. Like why is stealth needed for this game? So far it looks like I can just attack them and not do so much of stealth. I'm assuming that this is a showcase and soon there will be a reason of why stealth is needed, but as of now, I'm not convinced that stealth is implemented well in this game.

Have you played Sly Cooper? That game implements stealth very well.



Artwark commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo ...:

I don't think the 3DS lifespan will end soon until the next gen for the Wii U shows up. Its like GBC. even after the GBA launched, it still continued till 2003 like five years. The game boy had 733 games, game boy color had 464 games and then the GBA had 1024 games.

So then the DS had 1297 games while the 3DS has only 947 games so Nintendo needs to make more games for the system to satisfy us otherwise, even with the great quality of games on the 3DS, its underwhelming.

My big deal here is that many are saying that the 3DS lifespan will die out soon and that's not true because at the moment, its the only one that prints money for them and its coincided with the Wii U. So the next gen handheld can't be crossed with the Wii U which would mean that Nintendo would have to make the next gen console for it as well.

Also why are you guys bothered about the next gen so early? Can't you just play with the game and move on to next level?



Artwark commented on Where Is Nintendo's Place In The Games Industry?:

@KeeperBvK So port N64, SNES, GCN and Wii games for it? The fact that Prime Trilogy is at a cheap price would be one of the reasons to get the Wii U!

If you look at the virtual console for the 3DS, its underwhelming compared to the Wii U. Only NES, GB and GBC games not to mention SEGA classics and that's just about it for the virtual console.



Artwark commented on Nintendo Remains Silent on Third Party Wii Gam...:

Most of the third parties are already in chaos so I don't think having their games on Nintendo systems is gonna motivate consumers to by Nintendo products.

There are some exceptions like SEGA and Capcom but that's just about it.



Artwark commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:

@Dezzy Well that is the problem because if developers continue to expose beauty through that method, players will only play games because of that and nothing else.

I wonder if this is the reason Nintendo doesn't make any sexy characters.... Come to think of it, Samus isn't really that hot unlike how she looks in the manga. Fire Emblem on the other hand....... :$



Artwark commented on Hironobu Sakaguchi to be Honoured with Lifetim...:

I wonder what a lifetime achievement award means. Is it something that will last for generations? Because people don't remember what you've won, but rather what you did.

Anyways, great man. Totally deserves it! I couldn't get enough out of Trigger.



Artwark commented on Talking Point: Star Fox for Wii U is an Ongoin...:

I'm willing to bet that as soon as the game is shown as to how its played, fans will rant at how gimmicky the controls are going to be for the game.

Really? What is the problem with gimmicky controls? I played games that have these so called gimmicks in them and I never had an issue with the games except Mass attack (but even then its still playable.) So when this game releases, fans are going to be disappointed because of how gimmicky the game will be. And why would they ever get disappointed when the gamepad itselft isn't that gimmicky to begin with?



Artwark commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Youtube makes money out of you. So if your videos are superb, they pay you in return of gaining profit. Youtube itself is a competition that only the most successful ones get to be paid.

But for Nintendo, this can work. Think about it, since many gamers are average and not as critical as Pewds, they still make money when playing games Nintendo gives or tells them. That way, these youtubers will be popular because of what games they are into and will definitely work.

So thank Nintendo for that man! Atleast you get paid even if you're no good or better than the AVGN or Pewdepie!



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

Why can't companies take extra care to their workers knowing that they need them for the job done? Yes, in the gaming biz its a very hard thing but the fact is, people are suffering just to make a game when today, its getting easier to make games. I'm not saying Nintendo has to stop doing their own way of making games. I'm just saying that working long hours for just one accomplishment is just ridiculous even outside of gaming. If the game is rushed, its going to be buggy. If its delayed, it'll affect sales..... the world of gaming can't make up its mind.

@Justin83593 I agree. One man isn't going to decide the fate of a brand or its legacy. When Miyamoto retires, Nintendo will be prepared to face it and move on. When Iwata resigns, Nintendo will move on with a new CEO and that's that. what I'm worried about is what direction Nintendo will face when this happens and that's exactly what many are worried about Sakurai.

Personally, besides Kirby, I'm not much into his games even for Uprising. But I will agree that Uprising should be ported to the Wii U at the very least.

When I form my own company, I promise that I'll make it easy for my employees to get a job no matter what the outcome except in some cases. I'll promise that every worker doesn't have to work like even 12 hrs a day!
It'll be well balanced.



Artwark commented on Talking Point: It's Time to Salute The Nintend...:

I love the 3DS but not as much as the DS. I mean, the DS had a great library of games and while the 3DS does have that library, its not as large as DS. Don't get me wrong, I love my 3DS XL (And I feel guilty of its minor stains that I've caused due to anxiety.....:P) and Fire Emblem: Awakening is without a doubt my favorite game of all time, but if the 3DS doesn't have a Wario game, Metroid game and many others that the DS just nailed it, then its just rather.....underwhelming to say the least.

I don't think Nintendo is going to make a new handheld anytime soon even after two years because if they do that, they have to make an update that it can be compatible with the Wii U and that takes money and time so they might as well make a new console as well.

The GBA and GCN were one. Wii and DS were two and 3DS and Wii U are now. Besides with the New 3DS, i doubt they would end it really soon.
