jakysnakydx commented on Remake Request: Super Metroid 3D on Nintendo 3DS:

I've always known I was an oddball but I REALLY didn't mind the storytelling in Fusion. It was linear, and I understand that might be a major point in most people's ill will towards it. It wasn't just kind of linear, it was dead on "go here, everything else is locked" linear. In regards to a 'story' I thought it had the most 'plot'. I use quotations intentionally here as all of them have a story to be told but this one used dialogue (text dialogue) much more intensively and was at least a solid story as compared to ***** M.
Oh well, I like it :) I will however be VERY disappointed if Metroid skips the 3ds. A 2d side scroller is exactly what I wanted to this system, personally I have a hunch Nintendo isn't letting us down... I believe a Fusion/Prime bundle is on it's way.

@Spectra_Twilight actually yes they do.in the NDA indies sign with Nintendo, the big N withholds the right to discontinue the games sale fir any reason at their own sole discretion. If a game stopped selling significantly for example Nintendo could remove it just for kicks

jakysnakydx commented on Nintendo Confirms Super Mario amiibo - Gold Ed...:

So little understanding of manufacturing and forecasting. Amiibo outsold disneys infinity in the same 3 month period with the shortages. How could they have risking manufacturing as many as ya'll are asking they do with little evidence it would catch fire like this. There was unanimous distaste for Amiibo prelease from all the media coverage i saw. To design, manufacture, ship and place products like these we're looking at 6 months+. Nintendo IS working on supplying more but it wont magically appear from plastic dust in your recycling bin.

@SuperCharlie78 I find it VERY hard to bieve that any sane persin would abstain from a system because they dont receive an arbitrary rewards system that holds no weight or value.

So far I like the stamps and Nintendo 3ds crane game thing. I want SOMETHING in return. A stupid number holds no weight for and is nothing more tham a senseless contest

jakysnakydx commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

I have qualms about NL's structure. I find some reviewers to assess the game based on its merits, the majority however I feel includes their personal opinion to much. A review based on opinion says nothing on the quality of the game but only the personal preference of that author damaging the games reputation based om taste and bias.
Secondly is the use of an average. I dont feel 5 represents average here, I feel 5 is "awful terrible no good garbage" and a 7 is worth a few pennies. Then 9 and 10 becomes a gargled mess of everything better than average.
Lastly however and most importantly and I REALLY hope someone sees this, is the classification of games based on price and category. By this I mean, reviews for small, indie games take price into consideration and that's fine as it is a factor BUT there is no distinguishing statement here - Abyss by enjoy up is not as good as Yoshis new Island or Kirby Triple Deluxe but they get a similar score. Price influenced the review in Abyss and yet we still place it in the bracket with triple A games. That nullifies the meaning of the number score for me. I feel in todays day and age we need to categorize this.
Big developers put millions into a game a d a simple omission of feature X makes it a 6/10. Then we have $1.99 piece o junk here which "sucks but only costs a dollar." And is ranked as a superior game all around. The 1/10 system can work but we slop everything into one pool. For a high school team I might rate my football team a 7, forba professional league I might rate my state football team a 3. Does this mean my high school team is better tham the state team? No.
I understand that no one conciously compares smash bros with say Swords and Soldiers but the score is negatively impacted by the fact that both of these have a 9 or 10 rating but are no where near on par. A score can have great meaning without those variables that tarnish its reputation, I feel we need to categorize a bit more. Such as Indie 9/10, AAA 8/10, Under $5 3/10, etc. That would hold more weight in my eyes.

jakysnakydx commented on Weirdness: This Video Uses Super Mario Bros. 2...:

I'm VERY grateful the comments on here are what they are. This video was, in an attempt to be truthful, very flat. It fell in it's effort to eschew truth in favor of an anti Christianity focus. I can't say who made it, my guess would be an athiest but all I saw was that the only people who work hard are those who fear damnation. Perhaps the creator wishes everyone to stop working in favor of government welfare?

jakysnakydx commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

@stanleecroup k, you see here's the problem. All I know of Netflix's personal endeavors was Arrested Development Season 4 which was TERRIBLE they took a hilarious show, COMPLETELY derailed it's source content and it sucked.
I have VERY, VERY, VERY little hope this will be worth two craps. In fact I'm already convinced it will be terrible.

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

@thomasbw84. There's only one thing you're not seeing here. Just because Pewdiepie doesnt like doesnt mean that no one will rise to fill the void. More than likely someone will bend to the terms to take uncompeted profits through this program. People want youtube coverage of Nintendo games, someone will settle for 70% and if the rest of these predictions are correct will do so uncontested.
More likely than failure we should expect dedicated Nintendo channels that will succeed.

jakysnakydx commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

It looks like most of us could care less about Pewdiepie and I absolutely guarantee you Nintendo isn't going to suffer from less coverage by that twit I feel a mixed bag about the program. Personally I think it is MORE than fair. If you're getting paid to play a video game and people watch it it's fair that the developer gets as piece. Remember that VERY few of the Nintendo related videos actually fall in this category - how many actually make money? The let's play people with the highest subscribers are basically majority party here.
Another arguement is that NIntendo is loosing the exposure... question is, do they really need it? Yes and No. Some games need it alot don't. Is pewdiepie';s review of the next Legend of Zelda going to be an influential difference? I can promise you no.

jakysnakydx commented on Review: Teslagrad (Wii U eShop):

Just go5 i5 anr I love it! Its definitely rushed in the way of cramming the game into one... from a development standpoint they could have fleshed it out pretty easy with more navigation and i terim points. You kind of get the first three BIG items in the first hour it seems and from there it drags out. Fast pace is fine but they could have EASILY doubled it ;-)

this is the first Nintendo Direct I've ever walked away from. About halfway through I was done. I did look and see what else would be coming along and there was just nothing worth my time. I am excited about Fire Emblem although the first half looks so good I was hoping for a Wii U edition. That game By bandai namco sounds interesting.

jakysnakydx commented on Review: Tengami (Wii U eShop):

I personally just bought this and found it to be a tremendous waste of money. One hour of entertainment.. .actually it was about 30 minutes of entertainment and A LOT of waiting. I wouldn't have actually minded the waiting had I been in control, when I'm holding the joystick I feel I have a little bit more purpose than tapping on a locale and WAITING for the little pawn to catch up with my thinking. I feel no reason to recommend this game for 5x the price as it is on iOS devices. There is NO benefit to playing this on a tv as compared to a smaller, more casual experience. There are few games that have caused me to dream of an eShop return policy but this is certainly one of them.
Yes David Wise's music is great, but you know what? I'd rather just buy the soundtrack.

jakysnakydx commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

So far everyone has hit why Double Dash!! is still the best - track design and character differentiation. Pairing was cool with attacking/driving, in fact that was our PREFERRED way to play (2x2) but balancing the kart with the right characters and items was a blast! MK8 is my next choice however. I think the cart/bike balance is MUCH better and level design is finally there again. Mk7 takes my next take for it's overall balance and actual gameplay but is TIED with DS as the DS levels have SUPERIOR level design although limited in scope due to technical limitations. MK64 to this day has my favourite selection of levels. There isn't a single level in that game I don't enjoy through and through but I admit the controls can be wonky. SNES is next as it is fun but terrifying for those who didn't grow up with it (i.e. me). GBA I haven't included as I never actually played it but I will say the retro stages I've played are uninspired.
Last but not least we have MKWii - so far I haven't seen anyone choose it for a good reason, no offense, but saying BIKES! is like anyone else saying TWO DRIVERS! for DD. In a nutshell, the courses were terrible ... all of them without exception. The courses were also bastardized because of the mechanics - 5x wider than double dash, why in hell did they do that? The shortcut exploitation was HUGE! If you didn't use the flame runner with a heavy class you basically lost without question. And lastly, not that visuals are important, for its time it looked like a pee stain on the white lining that is Nintendo.

jakysnakydx commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

@Kaze_Memaryu Thank you. Big point in my book as well. Character selection with specific carts makes those carts a little more special in a way, because only certain players could use them! This is what I liked most in DD, that of carefully choosing your duo so you could use the cart you wanted to.

jakysnakydx commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

@minotaurgamer Actually it wasn't for gamers because it was a terrible iteration of the series such that if you didn't have a certain bike you WOULD NOT win. And even if you did the balancing was so tilted it all became irrelevant. That and the course design sucked, the visuals were ATROCIOUS, character selection was pathetic, items were retarded... hmm... I'm seeing a trend here.

@ninjapigstudios You are besides yourself right now.
Your assumptions are the result of disappointment that your mindless shovelware didnt steal the show. Be prepared for honest opinions and if you cant handle them get out of the market
For the very sake of who you are as a developer I cannot support you now or in the future.

jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. and amiibo Ha...:

This article shows extremely limited knowledge of manufacturing and its processes. First and foremost lets understamd that indisputably Nintendo is not in charge of how many Amiibo characters Walmart, GameStop, et al carry. The big N does NOT go to retailers and say "yo, we want 10 of these in this store and 20 in that." The retailers choose what they want to shelf. So if your local store doesnt carry it, guess whose fault it was? Thats right, their own. If the would like to order more they certainly can! But guess how much time it takes for dozen small plastic figurines to make it from China to your local shop in Cardston/Chesunt/Columbia/Wherever? A long time.
Buuut, you know what? The big N might not have made a very large initial shipment.. why would they dare do this!?!?!?! How about the luke warm reception they've received since announcement? Anyone who expected Nintendo to COMPLETELY understand exactly how many they'd need is an absolute fool, especially given the intermets reaction at e3... cool but meh? I think thats how I remember hearing it

jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Actually I do think Nintendo should make it's own phone but I stopped reading this at the word "Android". Nintendo is build on creating its own operating software, why on earth would they create phone hardware (which is beyond their current scope) and not the OS which is more than likely what they would excel at?
Why I think Nintendo would make a good phone is in the fact that few people can make integrated Hardware/Software like they do. Apple is the ONLY other that I can reference with Microsoft attempting but failing. The accessibility and uniqueness of Nintendo software (including operating software) would make it unique. Each users Mii seamlessly integrating into their profile's such as email, Miiverse, Text Messaging and phone records. Ideas like spotpass and Streetpass are WHOLLY magnified by phone integration as compared to their 3ds counterparts. It would be a perfect home for VC games, I feel and QOL platforms do in fact have a future on smartdevices as would better editions of Wii Fit, Brain Training and others. I feel they could, with proper attention replace the handheld scene with a proper device. Mobile devices ARE capable of running advanced software but are limited due to their methods of input - a button configuration like Sony's would eliminate many problems.
I think Nintendo needs a phone/tablet line but I don't think I agree with taking only the low road and I DEFINITELY don't agree with going hand in hand with Android.

jakysnakydx commented on Actor Is Suing Nintendo After Suffering Heart ...:

Aoetic bleeding is NOT connected to over heating. Im not claiming to be an md but thats a problem derived from a WHOLE lot more than dinking around in a suit. This is a cash grab to grab some settlement money from Nintendo. Ufortunately/fortunately his moronic lawyers dont know that Nintendo rarely settles but will see him in court.

jakysnakydx commented on Blinking Light Win Means You'll Never Have To ...:

@ElkinFencer10 Yeah, I was repairing systems for a few years and there would be problems in every department - this was just so prominent (I liked the reference to the Xbox 360 in the article) that it garnered far more attention. The only one I wasn't able to repair was one with an electrical problem in the AC Adapter receiver. Never could figure that one out...

jakysnakydx commented on Blinking Light Win Means You'll Never Have To ...:

@StarDust4Ever Very well said. Most people don't know how the NES works. I've replaced my connectors twice now (making it the third) and haven't had any problems except for a few finicky games that usually come up with cleaning. This however I find very neat. It also eliminates problems with the spring failure (less prominent but crippling as it is harder to replace).
I think Nintendo's reason for this was a little odd and probably unnecessary as sticking it straight in is far more appealing to me but regardless.
Thanks for the info!

@TurboTEF This is my problem, on release they looked good for a $10-$12 figurine. Now they are coming out at $12 and look like a free plastic McDonald's toy. I'm REALLY disappointed. Not worth the money except for those that being something exceptional to the table (I.e. Link for now).
