DefHalan commented on Nintendo Is "Looking At" Virtual Reality, But ...:

VR is just about the only thing that I can think of that I would want to be completely optional in a game. Many other features need to be mandatory for certain types of games, but VR is something that I think can be completely optional.

DefHalan commented on Dementium Remastered Targets a February Releas...:

I don't remember Dementium 2 being announced. This is awesome news. I actually sold my physical copies a few months ago and they will more than pay for these remasters. Hopefully Dementium 2 does a lot better and we can hear a Dementium 3 announcement soon.

DefHalan commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

I am surprised there has been so much discussion about something that equates to almost nothing. It doesn't change gameplay or story, just an optional character skin. This was a business decision and most likely related to the age rating which that wanted for the product. If you were buying this product for this one feature, then there are other products you might be more interested in.

@EllenJMiller Will it distract from your enjoyment of the product? How different would it be if they didn't tell you localization was done and just did it? Even if things are changed, they aren't going to drastically effect the story most of the time. Some older localization got pretty bad but we have come a long way from that.

"Super Mario Maker, Mario Party 10 and Yoshi's Woolly World games for the Wii U system, as well as the The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer games for the Nintendo 3DS system."

Well I only own 2 of those games... guess I won't get to participate.

@XCWarrior I too own tons of Indie Wii U and 3DS games. There are some fantastic games out there.

EA, Activision, and Ubisoft are mainly publishers. Most of the games they "flood" the market with are games they are publishing which is different. RCMADIAX is a developer. RCMADIAX isn't paying a bunch of people to release a bunch of different games. They are paying themselves to release these games. I don't know how large RCMADIAX is, if it is only 1 person like it seems to be or if they are a team of people. They have released something like 9 games in 2 years. That is crazy fast. I feel that is too fast to make quality products. They need to slow down and make something of quality. Blok Drop U is probably his most popular game but I don't think a single release from RCMADIAX since Blok Drop U has matched it quality.

If Profit is just making more money than you put into developing a product then I can defiantly see how all his games are profitable, I do not think he spent that much on actual development. But is RCMADIAX making enough to pay all its employees a fair wage? Do RCMADIAX employees make as much a year as other indie companies? I don't know. So how much Profit is RCMADIAX making after paying wages?

If RCMADIAX wants to fix their image then they need to take all this profit they have made from their 9 other games and put that towards making 1 quality release. Rather than releasing 9 games in two years for a few bucks each, how about they make 1 quality game in that amount of time and sell it for $10. I know indie development can be expensive and time consuming (the reason I haven't released anything) but if they are making profit why do RCMADIAX games drop in quality and scope compared to their original release Blok Drop U.

I want to give RCMADIAX a shot. I want them to do well but flooding the market with these small games is not the way to improve.

@XCWarrior Flooding a digital shop refers to releasing multiple sub-par products in a short amount of time. If he has made profit on every game he has sold, then I wonder what he defines profit as. Also I wonder why he got mad at the Nintendo fanbase and claimed he was going to stop releasing games on Wii U. If he was making profit then why would he turn his backs on his audience?

DefHalan commented on COLOR BOMBS Will Splat Onto the North American...:

@XCWarrior I totally agree, but it has lead to him flooding the eShop with sub par titles that people don't want. It probably would have been better to bundle them all together, it would have made his releases much less often which would mean less bad publicity and people getting more bang for their buck.

DefHalan commented on COLOR BOMBS Will Splat Onto the North American...:

@Kaze_Memaryu They are generally considered cheap but it would have been a better value for everyone to release 1 game collection compared to releasing each of those games separately. Reviews for about a third of his games have been decent. I think people would purchase a cheap game collection and been happy with the third of games being decent. Instead he floods the market with products no one wants and drags his name through the mud.

DefHalan commented on COLOR BOMBS Will Splat Onto the North American...:

I feel like RCMADIAX should have put all these games into 1. Rather than charging $2 a game, just charge us $10 for 10 games. It probably would have been a better value and gotten more sales. But cheap games releasing this often just makes them feel not worth it.

DefHalan commented on Voice Actors Union Authorises Strike Action Wi...:

I am hoping that after this developers demand more respect from publishers. If publishers/developers are going to have to treat voice actors (which is a small part of the overall development of a product) with more respect then developers should be able to demand more respect from publishers. This could be the door opening to a new games infustry, an industry where people are actually valued for their work and not just thrown out like trash after a project is completed. I don't understand why the Game Industry has formed unions.

DefHalan commented on Video Game Voice Actors Contemplate Strike Act...:

I kinda want to see this happen. I want to see how it affects the AAA industry (how they won't have voice actors or at least the good ones) and to see if it wakes the entire industry up to either start seriously talking about unions or at least trying to get better working conditions from publishers.

DefHalan commented on Video: New Hyrule Warriors Legends Trailer Sho...:

I am starting to think the 3DS version might have enough unique content to justify its purchase but I would like confirmation. I finally completed the Hyrule Warriors story, not I just have the extra DLC stories to go lol

DefHalan commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

Don't bite the hand that feeds you. You can't expect to speak poorly about important people in the company and keep your job. It isn't about "issues with company culture" it is just about how you present yourself especially when representing a company. I would like to know if he got permission to appear on this Podcast or if the "laxed" rules change made him think he didn't need to ask for permission. I would never want to represent a company without direct permission from some of the top people in a company.

DefHalan commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

Sounds like personal preference and not actual reasons. I like the GamePad's wider design, smaller controllers feel too crowded to me. I also find I am more likely to hit the wrong button on the Pro Controller compared to the GamePad. Just personal preference.

DefHalan commented on Reaction: The Concept of eShop 'Early Access' ...:

I think the only way to do Early Access Correctly is to not pay the developer/publisher until the game is released. People pay for a game in early access but Nintendo holds onto that money until the game is released. That way you don't have people over promising and taking the money and running.
