I doubt any Native Americans would be offended by this but then again we do live in the age of butthurt where everyone is offended by everything. I wish we were still a society that could just say 'Sorry. Deal with it' when people got offended about things like we used to.

A lot of interesting thoughts here and a great article. I loved the Wii U and in my rare case it was perfect because i missed the whole Wii boat so it was all new to me. I sure hope Nintendo has a killer game plan in place for NX and can make another revolution happen like they have been promising. As mentioned above...hardware innovation is important, advertising is helpful, but in the end GAMES will always be king and for the first time in a loooong time, Nintendo needs to come out swinging. Things like the Smash Bros launch game rumor sound cool and all (and suggest to me that something like a VR port could be possible) but really they need a killer app from day one. I keep sayin it...all they need to do is make Pokemon Online. Everyone on earth would but it along with any system it happens to be on at any price. Lol

I honestly didn't love this one. It has its strengths and if you've never played it, it might be worth it, but I had to force myself to finish it and don't think I'll play it again. I personally found the large world very empty and boring and the story kind of fades a little ways in. Plus I didn't enjoy the wolf segments and Zelda is hardly in it. To each his own but I honestly think it's got nothing on the likes of Skyward Sword or Ocarina of Time.



invictus4000 commented on Review: Final Fantasy Explorers (3DS):

Well...seeing as this is similar to Monster Hunter I probably won't be picking it up since I hate Monster Hunter and never have understood why it is so popular. And is it just me or does anyone else think that quest/loot driven RPG's are getting really old? Maybe I'm old fashioned but man do I wish RPGs could be story and character driven again like FF6 and 9. sigh.....poor Final Fantasy. R.I.P.

I may just be too old school...but I rarely enjoy online gameplay of any kind. Or at least I get bored of it really quick. It's SUCH a different (and more fun) experience playing something like Nintendo Land with my brothers and friends in the room than Splatoon online by myself. I hope they don't lose sight of that.



invictus4000 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Game Gear:

While the Gameboy was so much more a part of my childhood than Gamegear, I still thought it was awesome. I remember borrowing one from my friend and being SO surprised when the new set of batteries died in like 2 hours. Lol

Ugh this whole thing is so dumb. So in Awakening, when two same sex characters got to S rank, they just kind of became best friends. In this will a marriage scene be automatically triggered instead of its the compatible character? Because that would be annoying.

@shani Thanks for the feedback. Thats encouraging! To be honest, I havent been on MM much in a while since Xenoblade came out and havent utilized the new website stuff (and am still not totally sure how it works). That sounds like a much needed answer to MMs problems.



invictus4000 commented on Random: Eager Super Mario Maker Creator Shares...:

Sounds fun! Im all for the idea of playing levels that I know going in, are quality since in general the MM community is TERRIBLE at level creation. I mean, Im no master, but at least I try and put some thought into it instead of making all Auto Plays or 'Get a star and run through it' levels. Ive just stopped playing other peoples levels altogether unless I know the creator.
I love MM but I do wish the package was more robust to boot. Namely World Map creation and more assets to use. The costume updates got old real quick.
Wow...sorry for the downer comment. Haha. Love the game!

The room is so freakin awesome but I couldnt do it. My OCDness would drive me nuts since it would be impossible to play it all. Lol.

Its interesting that there was so much contraversy when my generation was young and games were just getting popular (i was norn in 85). My parents were kinda restrictive too for a while but as weve all become older its cool to see that 'everyone' plays video games now. Its just common now that adults and parents all play games because we are the generation that stared it all. Kinda cool!
