@Quorthon Anyone saying graphics don't matter are just wording it wrong. IGN and other game reviewers talk about graphical fidelity as if it was the only aspect of graphics that matters, and that is the notion that people put themselves up against when they say "graphics don't matter".

There's a lot more to graphics that is not jeopardized even if this video turns out to be accurate. "Graphics don't matter" is just an unenlightened way of saying that.



Fazermint commented on Reaction: LEGO Dimensions Could be a Sales Phe...:

I am baffled by the enthusiasm with which this article was written. NL, the fact that you're celebrating this game as a golden opportunity to make profit is troubling. As independent journalists, aren't you supposed to apply critical contemplation to the things you write? Have you spent no time thinking about whether this game would provide any real value in terms of good gameplay? As a core concept, these games are only money making schemes.

As a reader, I expect integrity on your part. Your priority should be to encourage me to spend my money on quality games (and discourage me from spending my money on mediocre games), not to encourage me to spend money, period.

For me as a consumer, I couldn't care less about sales numbers. It seems like it is personally important for some people to see the console selling well. Of course we'd all like to see Nintendo do well, but that's really a secondary concern for me.

As long as Nintendo keeps dishing out the quality games we all know and love, I am content. I can see why businessmen and journalists occupy themselves with the sales issue, but why obsess about it as a consumer? Instead of stressing out and bellyaching about in the comment section of NL, go play some video games, man.

Wow, clearly just about nobody in here knows whack about copyright laws. This game is not similar enough to Wind Waker to have any legal implication.

And what are you all bellyaching about, anyway? Would getting a WW-like game be such a bad thing?

It's like you're all 10 year old kids. What.

@unrandomsam And people go head over heels for these things. People will buy pretty much anything that's thrown their way. On the one hand, I'm happy that Nintendo is cashing in big time on this, but on the other hand I feel insulted that they're trying to stick figurines down my throat.

Wish they'd to an English presentation, are at least provide subtitles. Oh well, I'll of course be watching it even if I don't understand whack.

@Tsurii897, that whole statement doesn't clarify the actual question. WILL I BE ABLE TO DO QUESTS WITH MY FRIENDS?!?@ D: I get that it's not an MMO, nobody ever thought that. What's the point of this whole "loosely connected" thing, and not noticing other people? All I want is to be able to connect to my friends and do awesome questing together.

On topic: What does this even mean?

"the online aspect is aiming to have players loosely connected, giving a sense of 'solidarity' without a constant awareness of other players"

How does online play without awareness of other players even work? This throws my whole understanding of the game in whack. If I can't do quests with my friends, I'll be utterly disappointed.

Wow, you're one obnoxious kid.

Your first mistake is criticizing someone who is without a doubt infinitely more talented than yourself. Sure, you're a consumer, and it's your right to criticize that which you consume. That doesn't change the fact that you'll come off as extremely obnoxious.

Second, you mistake opinion for fact. What you're saying is clearly just your own personal opinion. It's perfectly fine to express your opinion, but not the way you do it. You present your opinion as though it was fact, and refuse to listen to triforcepower when he calls you out on it (and you will just roll your eyes when you read this).

When you use the sentence "In the anime community this and that", it's obvious that you're exaggerating anecdotal occurrences to support your own case. Such an argument has no ground. It's a popular argumentation style, but it's not a valid one. It's ambiguous and overly generalized, making it basically impossible for someone to disprove it. A lot of people use these kinds of arguments because they can get away with it. But the only message you're sending is that you don't have any real arguments up your sleeves.

I may come off as harsh, but I really think you should rethink the way you conduct yourself. I might be blowing this out of proportion, but it gets on my nerves when people don't use proper reasoning.
