The scares in the metroid universe worked because they weren't the default, but the exception: there was an adventure, an exploration, and part of it was scary and challenging not because of its script, but because of its settings and surroundings.

Wow, very accurate title.

And yes, exciting times :) I'll be going where nintendo is going as long as they are the uncompromising quality gaming company. It's the games that matter, the platforms are, well, the platforms.

This man is so right I want to hug him. The best games are the ones no one wanted and everyone loves. The games people say they want will always be second class citizens.

It is not up to the fans to know what they want. It is up to them to enjoy what is being made. The fans exist because of the creative outing in the first place.

1080p! 60fps! Polygons! Ultra hd! Brown and grey! Walk like a truck! Killcam! Weapon management physics! Realistic! Physics!

Oh wait. This actually looks like fun.



erv commented on Yoshi, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus Confirmed as...:

I love zero suit samus. And the no character shapeshifting means I can actually play with her, as I sucked with regular samus in most matches for reasons unknown.

And I like playing with sexually depicted characters, because fun.

So I might not be able to walk like a truck looking cool looking at how realistic my coat looks in the wind while navigating obscure menus and working around the slow button presses in realistic truck environments?

Wake me up when smash bros ain't happening...



erv commented on Miiverse Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U and 3DS:

I'm thinking next console should have a share button on the controller and instant share+screenshot without lag, and instant feed overlay without disrupting the game in a split second and back to it for me to actually use it a bit.



erv commented on Nintendo Has "Lost Its Way" But Should Never B...:

I love the wii U and have never been able to play so much great games at such an early stage in a consoles life. I do agree, however, that the wii U hardware lacks lots of design aesthetics. The wii had that nailed, and believe me it helps sell the hardware as being something sophisticated in the first place.

I’m always pleased with nintendo’s controller ergonomics though, which I think is very well done throughout all their hardware usually.



erv commented on Talking Point: Important Steps to Bring the 3D...:

Nintendo does not compete on technology levels, so as long as systems are differentiated in handhelds and consoles they are not going to match in experience.

Convergence is worth a lot for nintendo next gen. But well, get the network technology sorted out first, as that is where people will expect the benefits from while enjoying your ecosystem.

Well, fighting for a maiden in a nintendo world can be painful. While zelda never gets it on, peach has baby’s from mario, luigi AND bowser. Two plumpers and a tough guy? I know where the coins are going to. These are battles no man can win.



erv commented on Platinum: Nintendo Has Been The "White Knight"...:

Nintendo releases bayonetta 2. The game is probably lots of fun. The vocal nintendo anti-publishers on the internets start buying a wii U just to play it. They bash the wii U. Then, reluctantly, get another game for it.

Before you know it, they won’t accept a “cool protagonist moves like a truck in newtons laws of physics” game in brown and green anymore, but actually want to have fun.

I think this scenario is something nintendo is willing to try with bayonetta 2. Or at least they should, however unlikely things may go down like this.
