hypercoyote commented on These Official Wisdom Tree T-Shirts Are So Bad...:

@KodyDawg Yea, I've said the same thing. I think the dangerous part is filling in the spots where the Bible is silent. I think the human mind is so curious, that people who play those games will take the 'fillers' as being reality. For instance, the Bible only speaks a little on angels, but look how much lore there is that people have created around them, most of it originating from people's extrapolations on the Bible.

If this is the direction they're planning on going, I will likely stop messing with Club Nintendo. I appreciate all the rewards in the past, most of them were excellent, but I'm disappointed to see them cutting out physical rewards completely. Digital items are worthless in my eyes as they really have no collective value since they can be duplicated an endless number of times (should Nintendo decide to release them for sale) and these items cannot be sold without selling the system they're installed on. I'm with others, I will likely end up just selling the download code.

hypercoyote commented on Review: Bombing Bastards (Wii U eShop):

@C-Olimar I think that's in reverse, I think things become taboo because they are a problem. I didn't realize that no one in France struggles with alcoholism, but I'm also not a student of the culture there, so I'll take your word that they have no problems with their youth and alcohol. Also, I think if you expect your 10 year old to be that mature, you are going to be very disappointed. Prepare now.

Edit: I am now a student of French culture -> http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2011/12/12/143521104/french-lessons-why-letting-kids-drink-at-home-isn-t-tres-bien

hypercoyote commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

@Drac_Mazoku I definitely agree that this will likely cause anger with the MN9 followers, but let's be real, when are people on the Internet not easily angered? I can see the argument both ways. While they definitely could have waited until after the game was finished, does that really make sense to finish the game, release it, then ask for funding to put voice-overs in it? I realize that every decision is also backed by a business case, and naturally they want to sell more units of this game. But I still stand by my statement that I don't feel like not contributing will jeopardize the release of this game, so this additional funding request doesn't upset me at all.

hypercoyote commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

@Drac_Mazoku If it was a matter of requiring the funds to complete the game, I could understand that. But the matter of asking for the funds to add to the game, that doesn't bother me at all. I don't care if the game has voice acting, so I probably won't be adding more money. I don't feel at all obligated to donate more money than I already have and I don't feel like that decision is going to hinder the progress of the game either.

hypercoyote commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

I'd love to hear the opinion of someone who has actually worked in developing a major game and knows what costs are associated with it. Because all I see above are the opinions of gamers, and I don't think any of us know how much it costs to make a game. Also, to everyone who keeps asking if he ran out of money, he said in the article that this money is only for additional content not promised in the original Kickstarter.

hypercoyote commented on Video: Mighty No. 9: The Animated Series Gets ...:

FYI guys - from what I read, this trailer was made by the animation studio on their own dime as a sort of proof-of-concept to comcept about doing the series (unless there was another video before this one). So in other words, this is far from the final concept and I'm sure there'll be many revisions. I'm not a fan of this animation style or the overall silliness either, so I'm hoping they change direction on that.

hypercoyote commented on Interview: The Wizard Director Todd Holland On...:

Great background story for a great movie. I remember watching that movie when I was a kid, the unveiling of Super Mario 3 was amazing. I still get chills when I think about that scene. It's awesome to hear this directory had put so much of his heart into it too but sad about Universal's opinion of the movie.

hypercoyote commented on The World's Largest Video Game Collection is S...:

Ever wonder what the difference between a hoarder and a collector are? I feel like it's only organizational skills, but both will trap you when your possessions own you. I'm proud of this guy for breaking off that stuff, I can't imagine how exhausting it was to keep up that collection.

hypercoyote commented on Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is ...:

1) Cross-platform purchases (ie, buy the game, but get it on both 3DS and WiiU)
2) In relation to the above, credit for any games you have on both systems.
3) Folders on the home screen (like the 3DS allows you to create)
4) Credit for any games that are lost when merging two eShop accounts that have purchased the same game (currently the one copy of the game just disappears).

Bonus) An awesome capability would be the ability to let others "borrow" your games. For 24 hours you can let someone play the same game you own given the condition that you can't play it during that same time period. It'd be a great way to let people try something new that doesn't necessarily have a demo available. This would only apply to digital content, of course.

Seems a little late in the development cycle to still be making those kinds of choices....I hope they don't rush this game, it sounds awesome, but I don't see how they would have time to make that much of an open-world design in less than 2 years.

hypercoyote commented on Rare Nintendo World Championships Cartridge Ev...:

@A1234 I agree. I thought it was shady that the label was torn off anyway. I wouldn't think it wouldn't be super difficult to make a counterfeit cartridge given the ROM is freely available. But when he said something about not offering it to the next buyer, that makes me wonder even more.

hypercoyote commented on Christian First-Person Shooter Super Noah's Ar...:

@JaxonH Man, you ain't kidding! If you really take the time to read the Word, that stuff is deep. We can glaze over things and miss the big picture, like not realize that in two chapters you just read 40 years of someone's life. And to know those people were just like anyone else, they just let God use them...and still will today.

hypercoyote commented on Christian First-Person Shooter Super Noah's Ar...:

@Damo @Yorumi Given your explanation, then I did come to the wrong conclusion. The only reason is, that statement parallels one of the most common insults slung at Christians which is that they are 'stuck in the past', 'following an oudated book', etc. Forgive me for taking it that way, but given that it's a fairly common slur, I don't think it was as much of a stretch as it's being made out to be. But I don't think anyone is arguing that the games this company makes are garbage.

hypercoyote commented on Christian First-Person Shooter Super Noah's Ar...:

@DerrickC Naw, I don't think I've ever played one I considered a good game. The thing is, they could be really clever. Unlike the normal hack and slash where you rely entirely on your own experience and resources, at some points in the game you should come to an enemy that is absolutely impossible to beat, and you suddenly realize it's because you forgot to seek God before the battle. It'd take a lot of planning out and a lot of innovative ideas, but I think there's enough source material there to come up with some pretty epic games. But like I said, you still need some talented developers to make it happen. And most of those developers are only looking to work for money and not for the Master.

@Prof_Elvin_Gadd I don't think anyone was defending the company, but that's pretty funny. It wouldn't be the first time someone tried to do something shady in the name of religion.

@DerrickC I know I'd like to see some company step up and develop some quality Kingdom-based games. On a random note, I recently finished Earthbound for the first time....is it just me, or did that final battle have a crazy number of spiritual parallels? It was pretty epic.

hypercoyote commented on Christian First-Person Shooter Super Noah's Ar...:

@Yorumi lol, well, they do set themselves up as a lightning rod, though the comments in the article were reaching deeper than the company itself. But I agree, there's room for some great Kingdom-centered games on the market. It's just a matter of talented people willing to come together for the sake of Christ and not profit, because the odds are, they are not going to sell like Call of Duty no matter how good they are (though who am I to limit God?).

@Capt_N I think it's the tone of the article more than the report itself. I find it interesting that they are reprinting it (though am in no way interested in the game itself), so that part was informative. But I felt the undertone of the article was unnecessary.

So Nintendo Life is trolling now? Seriously, what is the point of this article other than to throw some underhanded jokes at Christianity and this company (referring to this line - "Wisdom Tree seems to be stuck in the past in more ways than one.")?
