The West has an issue issue with teenagers in a game marketed for teenagers? While we are at it maybe we can kick this up a notch and get Romeo Dallaire crying about the portrayal of child soldiers while we are at it or is that still taboo because NATO still enlists children.

You really need to turn off the tv venture outside into the real world someday. There are civilized communities and not everybody is a criminal or terrorist. People require guns for self defense because unlike you we do not have a SWAT team escorting us 24/7. Some people would like to just go for a walk in the woods and not have to worry about being turned into bear poop. Most people who carry weapons for self defense hope they will never have to use them. Do you wear a seatbelt because you're a terrible driver or because the other guy is?



ghosto commented on Project CARS Studio Boss Admits to Problems Wi...:

The game is rubbish anyways. Nintendo has put out game after game on the Wii U that is gorgeous and silky smooth and if the Wii U hardware was really the issue why would they have a Wii U kickstater for this game? This was a total scam from the very start.

Lawrence of Arabia is rated PG yet Call of Duty is rated M O_o

Ratings boards are a colossal waste of time and to quote Colonel Kurtz "We train young men to drop fire on people but their commanders won't allow them to write f*** on their airplane because it's obscene" pretty much the esrb in a nutshell.

It should always be 100% unlocked so you get the full experience right off the bat. They should make an option for those who are into achievements and those who would rather just get on with it and play the game. If I press A to unlock all the characters I'll learn the hard way getting my face smashed in online by the guy who grinded to unlock everything.

Only terrible games require this filler the good ones can stand on their own gameplay and have optional grinding.



ghosto commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

Nintendo's lawyers are sucking the company dry with their fear mongering and this policy is the gift that keeps on giving to the lawyers because now when registered content creators screw up Nintendo will be dragged through the mud and spend even more money on lawyers in court.

Youtube is free advertisement and Nintendo should of kept its mouth shut instead they now have a massive legal bill and have destroyed their image.



ghosto commented on Preview: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Takes the S...:

These games have a steep learning curve but once you learn the basics and the monsters attack patterns it fun to beat down some monsters. If you've got a good crew online the game is fun but if you get stuck with idiots they make the game a nightmare to play.

This is what happens when share holders and bean counters are put in charge of a company. Nintendo can't supply enough stock to meet demand and they are sitting on a mountain of New 3ds to launch after Christmas in Europe and North America O_o

Its like real life version of the movie The Producers

Minecraft sells for $2 billion yet Road Rash is covered in cobwebs O_o

Road Redemption looks pretty stiff in the combat area and who ever added guns and C4 needs to be tossed down a flight of stairs and kicked off the development team.

I hope I am wrong and this game is amazing on the Wii U.



ghosto commented on Nintendo Invests in New Lobbying Firm to Tackl...:

Piracy was rampant back in the NES days, lots of my friends had those white cartridges that had 118 games on them but their parents were such tool bags they would never reveal where they bought them so my parents could buy one to eliminate the middle man so I wouldn't have to invite their kids over to play some sweet games.

I'd love to play Jackal again on my Wii U and since I can only repurchase the game used a legal license transfer yields a whopping $0.00 for Konami and Nintendo so what exactly are they fighting?

Nintendo and every other corporation has stolen billions from legitimate customers with botched DRM so don't fall for their crocodile tears.

My Dad bought me a subscription to National Geographic and I was like WTF is this junk. In retaliation I bought my own subscription to Nintendo Power and I enjoyed raiding the mailbox every month hoping it would be there.

Shows how much the bean counters know. I am guessing these retailers operate like the airlines and just oversell anything and everything and then play the victim when everybody shows up with cash for their goods.



ghosto commented on Nintendo Offers Condolences to Robin Williams'...:

They should add a goofy side quest with a character that resembles Robin Williams.

The people trying to shun him for committing suicide should do something with their lives instead of trying to ride the coat tails of a dead man into obscurity.



ghosto commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

Children cannot access the internet without opening an account with an ISP so parents who open that door for them should be held 100% accountable for what happens, it is no different than alcohol, tobacco, firearms and vehicles at home.



ghosto commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

1080 snowboarding and Wave Race 64 had this and it wasn't a big deal. When they go the Microsoft route and charge a premium to jam the Wii U full of adds then its time to grab the pitch fork and torch and head to the Nintendo HQ.



ghosto commented on Nintendo Looking To Grow Wii U Audience To Tem...:

Do the third parties even have any toes left to shoot off? Borderlands and Civ 5 should of been on the Wii U because the gamepad would make them the best versions out there by a long shot but instead they do a crappy vita port with Borderlands and absolutely nothing with Civ 5. It wasn't that long ago the third parties were shouting from the rooftops about how revolutionary the Kinect would be and not even a year in Microsoft has already abandoned it.



ghosto commented on E3 2014: Ubisoft Admits to Holding Back Comple...:

The reason Ubisoft games don't sell is because they make garbage games. Did they find this clown scrubbing toilets and promote him to CEO because scrubbing toilets is about all he is qualified for. Ubisoft destroyed its own franchises nearly 10 years ago and since Mario Kart 8 is selling very well the problem is clearly Ubisoft.



ghosto commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:

Nintendo are suckers for listening to their lawyers, the only people who benefit from this is the Nintendo legal team. This already hurt sales and damaged the brand yet they are going to spend millions of dollars to prevent somebody on youtube from making a few bucks.



ghosto commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

It was an old game released at full price, can't blame Nintendo on that one. If it had tighter handling and got rid of those dumb crash animations it would of sold more copies.

While some people love the game at the end of the day much more people thought it was a bad game and that is why they didn't buy it and bad game category is the developers department. Make better games next time and they will sell more copies.

The people who buy your games make less money than you, work more holidays, work more weekends, do more dangerous jobs and work much harder than any developer so it is very insulting to the customer to go on a rant like this.



ghosto commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

Typical greed mentality of cutting the goose open to get the golden eggs. Maintaining servers costs peanuts and all it does is force people to never buy your product again when you pull the plug. Shutting down Gamespy and Xbox Live didn't exactly do wonders for Microsoft or the PC gaming market and the lost sales from rightfully upset customers will eclipse what ever server costs would of been.



ghosto commented on Nintendo UK's Store Offers The Mario and Sonic...:

The xbox 360 is garbage, the online is horrible, the games are broken, the interface is buggy and cluttered with ads and every feature is blocked by a pay wall.

Nintendo games look gorgeous, they launch instantly without stupid installs and 5000 patches plus the gamepad destroys the piece of garbage 360 controller.

You don't like the wii u fine, but don't go around claiming the 360 superior because its not, I've been with xbox since it launched and I jumped off that sinking ship and if you want to jump on that band wagon best of luck pal I hope you have deep pockets.



ghosto commented on Ubisoft Refuses to Comment on Watch_Dogs Wii U...:

Ubisoft had 3 franchise games on the original Xbox that dominated and in the blink of an eye they destroy all three of them by taking the games in the direction nobody wanted with all the future tech crap and pretty much paved the way for Call of Duty and Battlefield to take over and now those franchises are circling the drain to obscurity by making the exact same mistakes.

While Nintendo's polices aren't perfect they are setting themselves up for the long term and not painting themselves into a corner to make a fast buck. Nintendo has invested far more into the Wii U and the 3rd parties have invested next to nothing into the console yet expect a massive return with minimal effort and all the 3rd parties refusing to support the Wii U are doing it because they know their own products are junk that won't sell.



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

The price isn't the problem, it's the lack of games but with Donkey Kong and Mario Kart on the horizon that will change.

Nintendo could make some killer light gun games if they can utilize the mounts on the gamepad and incorporate the Wiimote and a fiberglass stock to be used on the jaws of lunatic teachers and mothers who don't like guns.



ghosto commented on EA's Peter Moore States That "Nintendo's A Gre...:

The current EA business model of releasing a lousy port of last years game on the the Wii U and charging full price is going to fail every time. If EA had a booth selling T-shirts at the Superbowl this year they'd show up with Ravens and 49ers gear and then blame the NFL for poor sales.



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

These crybaby 3rd party developers are the problem not the hardware. All they do is spew a bunch of corporate speak to justify their jobs. If they make good games people might buy them but if they put in zero effort, offer zero support, release the game for the Wii U weeks or months later, strip lots of features, then have the balls to charge full price and then when it tanks they instantly blame the customer and Nintendo.

If turd party developers refuse to make a game for the Wii U I refuse to buy it on Xbox 360. Up yours EA, Codemasters and anybody else who pulls this nonsense.



ghosto commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

When you have the exact same tools available to make a game that your competitor has and you keep finishing last place I've got some bad news, its not the hardware that is the issue, it is the operator. The whole anonymous angle is pathetic because these sources know the world will be rolling around on the floor laughing at them when they reveal their list of "accomplishments".
