Fazermint commented on Wii Fit No Substitute For Real Exercise Accord...:

The title is misleading. It implies that Wii Fit is a non-working form of exercise. The problem with lack of motivation is external to the game, and hence the game cannot be dubbed useless. Motivation is a universal problem for exercise, and these "scientists" just wasted their government's money.

Fazermint commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

The gamepad should never have been used as a controller option. It should have been used as what it really is: a screen. The way to really add value to a game is to put a map on the gamepad, or some other kind of monitoring screen, that the player can put on the table, and get information from that enhances his performance in-game. The MH3U Map function is the closest I've seen to this principle, but that map was too tiny for me.

Fazermint commented on Mass Market Price And Mario Kart 8 Will Revers...:

I agree with MK8 generating tons of hardware sales, but I think the price isn't really a problem. It's already the cheapest out of the three current-generation consoles.
I just hope the universe pulls through and makes X generate unprecedented hardware sales.

Fazermint commented on Nintendo Was Dead To Us Very Quickly, States E...:

EA is such a lame company. Don't disrespect Nintendo because they make family-friendly games. EA sounds like a teenage boy trying to show everyone that he's manly. HURR DURR, WE DON'T MAKE GAMES WITHOUT OVEREMPHASIZED VIOLENCE, BECAUSE WE'RE COOL LIKE THAT. AM I RIGHT, SINGLE GUYS IN YOUR 20S AND 30S?
It's funny how, to me at least, "mature" games seem to be meant for this kind of immature gamer. At least that's how EA projects it.

Fazermint commented on Sakurai Reiterates That There'll Be No Subspac...:

The subspace emissary was what saved SSBB from being a bad game. I enjoyed being able to play it with two players. If I actually want to do regular battles, I pop in SSBM. Just my opinion, but my point is that if SSBU manages to pull off smooth movement and responsive controls, it doesn't need another subspace emissary. That is not to say it wouldn't be nice to have.

As for the single player campaign, I hope it involves some form of character development.

Release X. Fix problemz.

In all seriousness, Nintendo needs to up their release frequency and release diversity. As a life-long Nintendo fan, there are basically only 2 Wii U-exclusive titles that I really needed to get (Monster Hunter 3U and SM3DW). This year should see some more essentials (X, MK8, SSBU), but that's still way too few. I'm hoping for a direct this month with a release date for X, and at least one new reveal that is actually interesting.

Fazermint commented on Talking Point: Claims of Wii U Third-Party Dev...:

That article is already confirmed as bogus.

Either way, I'm not interested in some random developer having problems. If a highly sophisticated company such as Monolith Soft would report development problems, it'd be another thing entirely.

Fazermint commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

X is my most anticipated game, ever. Xenoblade is without a doubt one of the best RPGs available - and arguably one of the best games in general. X looks like either a direct sequel (landscapes are similar to Xenoblade) or a spiritual successor (as with all Xeno-games), so I expect it to be even better than Xenoblade. To top it off, it has online multiplayer. It's going to be the most epic game ever created. I can't wait to immerse myself in the beautifully crafted world of X, battling gigantic monsters with my swordgun, driving and flying around in my mech, and playing it with friends.

Fazermint commented on Nintendo Dominates Festive Hardware Charts in ...:

BUT I THOUGHT WII U WAS DOOMED BECAUSE MARKETING "EXPERTS" NOTICED A TREND OF LOW INITIAL SALES AND INTERPRETED IT AS DEFINITIVE FACT THAT WOULD GOVERN THE WII U'S ENTIRE LIFECYCLE, AND BECAUSE THE FLAWED IDEOLOGY CALLED TECHNOLOGICAL DETERMINISM DICTATES THAT ONLY SPECS MATTER.
Necessary caps.

Fazermint commented on Zelda Unveiled as New Smash Bros. Challenger:

@Yorumi I was thinking about Melee when I wrote that. In Brawl, the character movement is so slow that many good characters lost their edge. Then it probably doesn't matter what form you're in. Hell, it hardly matters what character you choose.

Fazermint commented on Zelda Unveiled as New Smash Bros. Challenger:

It would be ridiculous if Zelda couldn't change into Sheik, given the fact that Zelda is terribad.
This game doesn't really feel like a new smash bros. It feels like what Brawl should have been (i.e. I'm hoping for more fluent movements and responsive controls).
I don't get the fuss about returning characters. Reveal some new characters that come from games related to battle, not from farming or exercise.
