Einherjar commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Discusses Production of the P...:

@Kaze_Memaryu So, basically: Bla bla destiny bla bla prophecy bla bla predestination :P
So, the poor guy is pretty much the ultimate puppet, possesed by an unquenchable thirst for power. I guess i should finally finish Skyward Sword :P
But now i kinda wish the series would take a more story driven approach for once. Maybe Zelda U, with its new open world formula, will give us a bit more elder scrolls esque backstory and lore.
The Zelda universe as a whole is so rich and full of potential, that tapped into every time, but could use some more fleshing out once in a while.

@Kaze_Memaryu That pic is simply amazing !
And you know what ? I really want a triforce teamup. A bigger bad to bring these three triforce bearers together.
And now my Dynasty/Hyrule Warriors mind runs amok, picturing a collaboration army of Hylians lead by Zelda, the forces of Nature lead by Link (Pretty much like Lana did) and Gerudo FOrces lead by Gannondorf....

Ok, enough drooling, i stop :P

Einherjar commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (Europe):

That Breath of Fire 2 arrived first isnt all that odd.
You see, the first one was actually localized and translated by Squaresoft, while 2 was completely made by Capcom.
Thus, BoF 1 required 2 partys to agree with the release as one party owns the right to the base game and another owns the right to the localized translation.
This has been todays lesson in: Archaic rights management ruins everything.

But this will be one heck of an expansive week...

They are going all out with the themes right now, its amazing :D
Though i have to say, id be more interested in WiiU themes, as i spend way more time with it :)

@Kaze_Memaryu Yup, i love that too. Just shows that the stuff he creates isnt just "another money making IP" but something important to him.
And i feel thats what teh industry is lacking overall. Projects made with love and passion in the first place :)

Also, its that Ganondorf teaching archery to Link in your Avatar ? O.o Thats awesome !

Einherjar commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

@ikki5 I cant second that. I also never had any lag, nor did i have any connection loss.
To be fair, im from Europe, Germany. We tend to have a very solid internet connection overall.
So yeah, everything i played online so far, had a perfectly stable connection.
Monster Hunter for instance would have bombed if the WiiU couldnt keep up with online play !

Einherjar commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Well, i read reviews of games, im not sure about getting. So for smash, i dont really need a detailed "whats it gonna be" since its already bought :D
Therefore, youre pending rating is one of the biggest troll moves :P
I just wanted to sneak in at look at the beatiful 10/10

Also, why are people so afraid of this game being laggy online ? MK8 for instance is absolutely flawless online. I have yet to have a race with a single lagging player or a connection loss, both local and global.
Why should smash suddenly be different ?

Einherjar commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

So, they are now directly compeing against Minecraft ? Seriously ?
Let me get that straight: To develop for other consoles, you need to get their dev kit, which costs quite a bit of money for such a small studio.
What in the world are they thinking ? I mean, the game itself wasnt the most brilliant idea to begin with, but having the original at their throat now is just stupid.

Einherjar commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Is it two years already ? O.o
Well, my summery:
One of the best and most entertaining systems i have. Its also the one with the most overall runtime at the moment.
Compared to my recent PS4 purchase, which was a complete waste of money on a system, that i would describe as my worst so far, its an absolute gift.
Im a day one adopter of the WiiU and didnt have a single day regreting it. Like with pretty much any Nintendo system, it reminded me of how much fun i could have with games instead of them being a mere time sink.

It also brough plattformers back to the surface which im more than happy about. Overall, and contrary to mainstream belive, i think its a very worthy console with a pretty good lineup of games compared to its utterly lackluster competitors.

Im happy to have it, and with the upcomming releases on the horizon, it keeps on getting better and better still.

Einherjar commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

Ill get it as soon as i change my mind about these games, which will never happen xD
No seriously, enough of these generic open world shooters, that concept went dry long ago.

@KillScottKill Oh boy, how right you are. It gets rid of constant menu switching and thus, never breaks the flow of the game.
But you know the folks around here.
When the gamepad is used in a practical way, its noz gimmicky enough, when its use dto its fullest, its too gimmicky.
There is no middle ground.

Einherjar commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

That sony even remembers their own systems to compare them to others is exceptional.
I mean, they have pretty much the worst supportet plattforms out there. PSN is a mess, the regional differences on the PSN Store are a joke and, well, their current line up consists of "smash hits" like Drive Club, a game so hyped and praised, that i still wasnt able to go online with it....in a game made for online play....on servers where you pay for access....on a console which only innovations are "stuff with internet...and stuff"

Sony, youre a joke. Before attacking others who are doing far better, try to get your own stuff together.

Einherjar commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

@Gerbwmu Im a little more critical when it comes to stuff like that.
As a consumer, the only way to show your dismay is to "vote with your wallet"
and UbiSofts current politics regarding their own consumers are definitly not ok.
If i have a craving for tetris, there are more than enough ways to play it already. Therefore, it wont hurt me in the slightest, and that pretty much goes for anything UbiSoft has to offer at the moment.

Like i said earlier, the only thing that might hurt would be another Rayman release, but even then, im rather strict. I wont support them, no matter what.

Einherjar commented on Resolution Doesn't Matter With 2D Games, Says ...:

@Volmun Funny that you mention it. The new PS4 version has the bullet point, that its now in "HD", the translation for it is "Its now so far zoomed out, that you wont see jack"
Glad that they implemented a zoom function. So basically, you have to zoom it to a state, that it looks like any other console version, als the fully zoomed out state is literally unusable :P

All in all, its less of a resolution thing and more a problem with proportion.
Like many others stated, raw pixel density doesnt do jack. Most people cant even destinguish 1080 from 720 when not specifically told.
It all comes down to how you "scale" your asssets.
Like i stated earlier, if you design your sprites for a high resolution, but your game runs on a smaller one, sprites get mushed, look jagged and squished and overall cheap.
The same goes the other way around.
If you design your assets for the resolution your game runs on, its all fine and dandy from a technical standpoint :)

@BakaKnight Well, the series wasnt really kicking. The producer just recently got the rights back for it. In the meantime, we got BlazBlue.
Its sad that it wont be released on WiiU, but to be perfectly honest, and trust me, im anything but a graphics person, but ill get this title on PS4 JUST for the graphics.
Never has a game impressed me that much graphically. It would be a shame to play a watered down version of it. And, well, its Guilty Gear. If graphics dont matter, get the Wii Game ;)
Even BlazBlue is basically a carbon copy, just with a different coating.

@Gerbwmu Really ? I seriously didnt know that. I thought EA was managing the rights at the moment ? Well, then scratch that from the list :)
EDIT: Well, its even mentioned on the list. My bad, i just looked at the title, as Tetris really doesnt need an explaination :D

Einherjar commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

Whoever buys watchdogs is a clown beyond help in my book.
Im sorry if i offended everyone, but to be absolutely honest, supporting UbiSoft with any sort of purchase at this point is simply a stupid idea.
Their lates AC travesty is just a huge middle finger, their consumer relationship came to the point where they are calling gamers "terrorists" and their games quality is sunken even past EAs standarts.
Honestly, buying their stuff is burrying this industry one shovel at a time.

Back on Topic:
Wild Guns
Lufia
And probably Tetris Ultimate for me.
Also the SMT4 DLC

Einherjar commented on Resolution Doesn't Matter With 2D Games, Says ...:

It all comes down to art direction and art style.
Have the appropriate resolution for your spritework. Thats pretty much all you need from a technical standpoint.
Too low and it looks like mush, too high and its getting too tiny (and also looks like mush)
If anyone wants to see modern spritework at its best, look no further than Arc System Works or Vanilla Ware games.

Though i have to say, What Arc System has done with Guilty Gear 3 is still mind blowing. Watch a trailer and keep in mind, that everything you see is a 3D model and not hand drawn art.
I simply cant wrap my head around how amazing this cel shading job is.

Einherjar commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:

Smash is really the only game i know, where every character is the best and the worst at the same time.
Look at WiiFit Trainer. I cant win a single match with them for the life of me. In the hands of my GF, its pretty mutch an instant win for her.
It all comes down to knowing exactly what youre doing.

Einherjar commented on Table Top Racing: World Tour Dev Isn't Sure Ab...:

The reason why companies avoid nintendo right there:
Competition !
And when youre not even slightly convinced that your product brings something worthwhile to the table, you have two options:

  • Smacktalk them, so that they seem worse than you
  • Avoid them, so that you wont be compared to their products and can act as an ersatz for this competition on other systems.

Well, ill be honest. I dont care for the game one bit. Ill get it for collection purposes, but as a game itself, not my cup of tea.
But im super happy that its release will finally end all that whining and begging for a remake.

Einherjar commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:

To be brutally honest, i also hate the original SMB controll / physics behaviour. Far to slippery and weighted.
If it comes to 2D Mario games, SMW is the pinacle of platformer controlls. Though to be fair, everything from SMB3 onwards was pretty much spot on.

Something completely inrelated:
As a PS4 owner myself, the graphics of this game impress me far more than anything ive seen so far on my PS4.
I guess it shows that artstyle goes much further than tech alone.
Im so hyped for this !

Oh god really ? That sucks majorly. Well, i can understand it, markets are already flooded by all that skylanders and infinity crap, but they should at least be continuously produced and available on websites like amazon and such.
This will only drive up prices on said sites, as horders are going to flock over them.

Einherjar commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

I preordered the first print edition a few months earlier and even then, i got lucky.
Bayonetta 2 as a stand alone game is available although with very few copys, the bundle is sold old and the first print edition was exclusive those who preordered it and never made it onto shelfes.
I talked to my buddy working for one of our biggest electronics stores and well, it sells like crazy.
They ordered a single margin since they expected low sales, being relatively low profile game and had to order 2 more margins just to cope with pre orders and another one to put on store shelfs.
According to him, it even outsells the highest profile games on the current top platforms.

I still remember simply hating this series back in the day and, well, i adore it today.
And i dont even know why. Its brutally hard, sports some really annoying features (its save and world travel for instance) and yet, i always come back.

@DiscoGentleman No harm done, but its just not fair towards the NL autors.
If there is nothing of worth regarding actual gaming news, should they just take a day off and leave the site without updates all together ?
They just post interesting sideline stuff, igniting interesting conversations among the userbase to keep things lively.

@Nintenjoe64 Actually, thats not even wrong if you read the "behind the scenes" material ;) She was pretty brave.

But on that note, please explain Ashley Graham :P

@DiscoGentleman Last time ive checked, we were on Nintendo*Life* not Nintendo*News* and therefore, a "not-quite-news" article is pretty fitting, as it still has something to do with the overall gaming *life*style

@MadAdam81 Oh ? Hm, seems like our news people were on BS duty then :P
Well, it doesnt really change the problem. Its a caffein dring, coke doesnt grant these buffs, why should RedBull ?
It is common knowledge / sense. But is was a perfect attacking point. Like i said, THATS why EULAs are generally stock full of stuff, nobody really needs to know, just for law suit protection-
