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.

@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.

@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.

@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.

@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.")?

hypercoyote commented on SpillPass-Pi Could be a Clever Workaround for ...:

I'm surprised to see this reported on here too. I take advantage of the "HomePass" due to the fact that it's not really feasible to make multiple trips to McDonald's or the AT&T store (only two places in my town) to get the hits I need to do anything in my games. But I feel it falls in a grey area as I'm sure the point of partnering with those places was increased traffic to their establishments.

@wombatkidd Sorry, did I ever make a claim that I had total knowledge of the workings of SpotPass? I don't believe I ever made that claim, in fact I believe I established that I didn't. What @BrightBeing said and what @BrightBeing meant are two totally different things. It would be obvious to someone who has knowledge of that fact, not at all obvious to someone who doesn't. I can see that this conversation is very important to you though, so I will concede and allow you have the victory. You Win!!

hypercoyote commented on Wii Sports Club Will Download Automatically Wi...:

@wombatkidd It appears, from what you wrote, that you didn't read both of the posts I was responding to. The response you are referring to was to someone who was saying I should turn off SpotPass entirely (not just software updates, which I was unaware was a separate setting until @AVahne posted a helpful response). Obviously that (turning off SpotPass altogether) is a sledgehammer approach to the problem, hence my response. So yes, what you have stated is absolutely true and makes perfect sense. However, the sarcastic joke is lost since that's not what I was saying at all and you really just look silly now. But good try.

@AVahne Okay, I didn't realize they segmented out the updates you receive on SpotPass, that's different then. Though I do still think that's a really large update to push.

@BrightBeing That's not really a feasible solution, now is it? That's like saying someone should disable their email because they don't like SPAM or cut off their cable service because they don't like adverts.

hypercoyote commented on Ubisoft Explains Wii U Watch_Dogs Visuals as "...:

Man, I'm disappointed to hear there's not really any extra Gamepad features, the Wii U really could add a lot to this game. If that's the case, I would most likely end up getting the PS4 version to be real and get the better graphics. I want to show the WiiU version love but it seems like a downgrade to me. The games that will shine on the Wii U will be games designed FOR the Wii U, not ported to it.

hypercoyote commented on DuckTales: Remastered Coming to Retail on Wii ...:

Awesome, glad I waited to get it now! Glad to see another game offering a retail option for a slightly higher premium. I think it sends a good message that yes, there are people who still want physical copies. If money savings is the reason for digital only, follow this trend and add a little bit into the price!

@Bulby That's what I was thinking. So basically they're taking other fan generated content (were any of these originally for sale or were they all free?), re-bundling it, reselling it and making money off of it. Happy Anniversary, Megaman, we're milking your fans!

hypercoyote commented on Nintendo Reveals The 2013 Club Nintendo Elite ...:

I started to complain that our rewards (USA) weren't as good Japan's, but seeing all the UK posts, I feel bad now. I imported the MM soundtrack years ago, but that seems like the better choice over the posters....Although the Japan soundtrack was 2 discs, so I'm wondering if that picture is only showing 1 of the 2 or the soundtrack is actually not as complete as it says it is.

In hindsight, I really enjoy Zelda 2. I wasn't a fan of it at the time, but I would like to see Ninty do a 'sequel' for it, using the same style, just to see how they would make it today. But please, keep the difficulty level!
