erv commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

What I think is disturbing about this article is the presupposition that empowered, independent females are not sexually promiscuous, independent, or recognizable - and the fact that most commenters share the same wrong presupposition without question.

We are all sexual beings. Sex itself is a daily aspect of life, sexual identity is a big part of who we are. This will manifest in any art form, communication, you name it - and that is healthy.

If intelligent and strong, leading or independent women are expected not to have a very visual, inviting, promiscuous - or anything, really - aspect to their identity, I don't know what is more sexist to be honest :(

Come on nintendolife, be better than that.



erv commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

I've seen it and it was a potential buy for me, considering the fast pace physics it embraces.

Then again, I'll probably be playing too much smash and too much bayonetta or hyrule warriors in the first place.



erv commented on The Namco Special Flag Will Boost Your Score i...:

I like stuff like this. It makes smash bros the chaotic, fun smasher that it is. If you want a classic beatemup, smash is not the game to ask for these elements.

Anyways, as long as everybody has to hold the flag with the same criteria it can not, by logical extension, be an unfair gameplay element. Unexpected and impactful, yes (that's part of the fun), but the same rules apply to everyone whichever way you take it.



erv commented on Nintendo Download: 14th August (Europe):

So I'm really thinking about ac4, but not sure yet. Is it far less boring than ac3 was? The reviews seem to imply that it is much better than ac3 for all the right reasons but I'm unsure whether or not this is still the case.



erv commented on Preview: Exploring Black Magic in Bayonetta 2:

This game is one of the bigger reasons I'm not sure whether or not to buy hyrule warriors in its launch window. You know, with smash being a must, there's only so much time and money to spend soon:)



erv commented on Review: Wii Sports Club (Wii U):

Moved on. Mario galaxy was a milestone in gaming that, for all the right reasons, made me forget about conceptual fun in the likes of wii sports and all others before galaxy.

Yep, wii u is more awesome already.



erv commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:

Online is more important than most aspects to me. A game like this really benefits from an online component.

But this is nintendo - usually late but when they get there, quite right.

I don't like their excruciating slowness, though:)



erv commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Delay in Europe...:

I always laugh when the good old na region gets a game 4 days later and half the fanbase seems to ve upset.

Before the xenoblade etc. triple game saga happened, all there ever was was a few days, even today. Meanwhile, if stuff gets delayed here it's always weeks and months, and all the while I'm still not playing scribblenauts or shovel knight.

I understand the marketing department, but loathe its results. They crunch the numbers, they don't push the vision. And every gamer and his dog knows nintendo needs the latter.



erv commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

Ok nintendolife, here's what needs to happen.

You need to play mario kart 8. Monster hunter. Wonderful 101. Pikmin 3. Super mario 3d world. Games that matter.

Then, review a title. Any title - a dollar eshop, a blockbuster bayonetta - any title. Then think about the quality experience. Not the price, or the dollar for an effort - think about my precious time. My precious, little, rather to be well spent time.

Then, do you really recommend 5 minutes of blok drop wii u over 5 minutes of mario kart? Or 40 minutes of I've got to run over 40 minutes of pikmin 3?

I'm willing to argue that the first review site that's willing to review any game experience in that light, instead of falling for non-significant referentials of price to quality ratios that forgoes any time for quality enjoyment ratio, wins the entire internet in the long run.

I'm still hoping that will be you guys.



erv commented on Latest Wii U System Update Allows Console To C...:

I think the ability to transfer your own console system to another is a great improvement. Should my wii U ever break down in a way my wii did, I can now just transfer the system and re apply my hard drive.

Here's hoping that never needs to happen though.



erv commented on Video: Watch Zelda Lay The Smackdown With The ...:

Whoa. Another field full of creatures waiting to be lawnmowed.

I need review material before I decide on buying this. I loved spartan total warrior, for instance, but things like co op and variety will dictate the quality of this particular game.



erv commented on Rising Star Games Is Now Ten Years Old:

Little kings story.

But bless them, it wasn't pushed to shop at all so the game didn't sell well. I like what they publish, but hate how they publish.
