Critical thought is a skill that many confuse with the act of simply being critical.

Fazermint commented on You Can Now Buy A Replacement Wii U GamePad On...:

This would have been a welcome option right off the bat. Up till now you'd have to send it in and be charged twice that amount to be sent a new one. Luckily I found a nice little workshop that repairs them for a a fraction of the price.



Fazermint commented on Video: Check Out Cloud Strife's Marvellous Sup...:

@Crimzonlogic When Reggie said "I smell a new trailer coming" or whatever, and the FF7 theme played, I seriously thought that we were getting a FF7 remake. Then that ugly Smash logo popped up. I'm excited for Cloud in Smash, but a FF7 remake would have been infintely cooler. But it's unlikely that it'll ever get a remake, and if it did, it wouldn't be on a Nintendo console.



Fazermint commented on Preview: Getting Lost in the World of Xenoblad...:

The most important question:
Do you have to spend half of the game time searching for the NPCs who are supposed to give you quests, who only appear at certain times in certain areas after certain criteria have been met? Questing in XC was a toootal quagmire.



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

Third-wave feminism is way more prominent in western culture than in the east. This is a logical move for Nintendo to avoid a potential attack on their image as family-friendly by feminazis.

I don't care either way, as I get my fix of nekkid ladies elsewhere.



Fazermint commented on Genei Ibun Roku #FE Directors Reveal More Deta...:

This game looks too Japanese. Sounds ridiculous, but hear me out.

How compelling can the narrative be in a high school setting? And J-pop really only appeals to the vast minority of western people. It doesn't help that any sense of immersion the game might give would be instantly broken by the cheering crowd that oversees your battles.

My subjective opinion, but I'm pretty sure this game mostly appeals to people who are engrossed in Japanese culture.

@Kirk I think it's time for your medication right about now.

Hateful comments delivered purely because someone is of a different mind than you is ridiculously lame. Butthurt may not be the appropriate term, but you've certainly got a stick up your behind (and it must go all the way up and pierce your brain, because that one seems to malfunction).



Fazermint commented on Proof of Functioning Wii U Emulator, Cemu, Eme...:

I wouldn't worry about emulation. If there was anything that significantly affected sales for the Wii and DS, it was not the emulators. For the Wii, softmodding was really easy to do. For the DS, flashcarts opened up the whole game library for a price lower than one single game.

The Wii U's doing okay in that regard. Last time I checked, only the Wii Mode is moddable.



Fazermint commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

Well, this was a poorly thought of point of discussion and ultimately nothing more than a childlike reaction to the disappointment of a delay.

Nobody expected Star Fox to have such a significant impact on console sales that its delay warrants a hastily written doom-and-gloom article. The only thing we, as consumers, expect of the Wii U, is that all the games currently promised are released.

The phrase 'beating a dead horse' springs to mind. I guess it would be more accurate to say 'don't beat the old and weary horse that is doing its best to reach the finish line'.



Fazermint commented on Weirdness: The Bizarre Truth of Bowser Jr.'s M...:

Eh, I don't get the fuss.

He pointed at himself as the "mother" of Bowser Jr, because he designed him. That people on the internet take that to mean that he did the nasties with Bowser is just not really any concern of mine.

OR he pointed up towards God, and Bowser Jr. is in fact Jesus.
