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!



jakysnakydx commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Shows Off 'Super' New L...:

Im excited for Captain Toad bit i dont think anyone was really looki g for a full retail release. I was looking for a $20-$30 eShop download. That wouod jave been fun! Ive actually lost some steam from what I see as an overly excited project.
Sometimes games benefit from being small.



jakysnakydx commented on Mario Party 10:

I will not be getting this. If i want to play a game of chance Ill hit the slots and roulette and if I want to mess with my friends while they play Ill tamper with the board. Producing this game is a waste of resources.



jakysnakydx commented on Wii U eShop Title Meme Run Seals Approval To R...:

This is something. Thatd actually do very well as a free android/iOS release with lrocesurally generated memes as compared to the same ordered crap over and over. Marketing this game has fallen very short. Wrong audience, wrong platform wrong approach



jakysnakydx commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

Yeah going wii u exclusie lromised some following due to lack of co.petition but going multiplat I see as allowing the other 3 wii u exclusive block builders to surpass it. Best kf lu k but hes looring mo ey into an emlty hole.



jakysnakydx commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

@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).



jakysnakydx commented on Shulk amiibo Listed as GameStop Exclusive in t...:

@TeeJay not I. Ive never been to a Gamestop where I try and buy something Nintendo related and was not criticized for not buying xbone. It is SUCJ a pain in tye butt to deal with those idiots. Besides the joking about gamestop increasing the price isnt all that far off - they will jack up the price. Because they can



jakysnakydx commented on Konami Demands That Hardcore Gaming 101 Presen...:

Its actualy not the profitthat Konami wants, remember that the books author said this isnt licensed but that didnt need be the case. He clearly wants to work with Konami on this. Companies canbe oddly protective of their licenses, even the big N. They'll license their priperties out for the dumbest junk in the world but deny the next best application - this book possibly being a good example. For the company its about perceived marketing and brand value/recognition. A brand is so much more than a bunch of internet fans making fan products, more money than we fathom is paid simply in directing the brand with individuals hired to simplly decide ifbthe current game or product material fitsbwith that perceived notion. This book probably fell outside that.
My guess is that 2 months after release they looked it over and deemed it unfitting. There is the last caveat though that NO ONE deserrves to profit off another individual/organizations material. Imagine how much time and moneybhas been put into that series? And for just any joe schmoe to go profiteering? Thats despicable!



jakysnakydx commented on Table Top Racing: World Tour Dev Isn't Sure Ab...:

Yewh, forza, dirt and gran turismo and of course the upcoming C.A.R.S. Im surprised theyre worried about Mario Kart, of ckurse those are all more true to form racing sims whilr Mario Kart is definitely not.
There is definitely more room here for racing games



jakysnakydx commented on Feature: Does Super Smash Bros. Wii U's Smash ...:

@Joruus_Cbaoth Yeah I'm definitely going to argue against this point. It's all opinion if you liked those single player experiences but A) Smash Tour isn't meant to be a single player experience, being upset at Smash Tour for not being SSBM's Adventure mode is kind of rediculous. And B) Again, Subspace Emissary being good is extremely subjective - I for one found it to be pathetic and annoying.



jakysnakydx commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Qu...:

@Action51 yeah the nostalgia goggles argument is as musch an opinionated farse as any other. Mostvof these games I didnt play until my 20's and I still agree with this review.
New games can be good butbjust because they dont pass someone elses top 10 book doesnt automatically don nostalgia goggles. I for one hate mario galaxy... sorry



jakysnakydx commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Just a thought here... mostly unrelated to the topic at hand of a price cut but allot of people are saying "Nintendo needs to make the games people want!!!" Like what? New Super Mario bros was the best selling game after Wii Sports? Followed by Wii Fit? Followed by Smash Bros, Donkey Kong, Zelda, etc. The heavy hitters for the Wii are no longer heavy hitters on the Wii U. Nintendo TRIED to make the games you like but unfortunately those no longer tickle your pickle. Now they are looking for something new.
Personally I am STOKED for Starfox Wii U, project Guard and Kirby: Rainbow Curse. Those are games I like.



jakysnakydx commented on Bayonetta 2 Kicks Into The Top 10 in UK Charts:

Anazing that people jump to nintendo for the causeof undershipment. Surely there are others here who have worked some position in gaming retail. The RETAILERS purchase from Nintendo. Except for tge eshop, nintendo world and nintendo uk online store nintendo is a wholesaler.
Places like gamestop, best buy and others determine tge amount of stock they want NOT what Nintendo throws at them. Here you have a game that did just ok, by a studio tgat most dont know on a system thats doing terrible... you really wonder why the retailers ordered short?



jakysnakydx commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire to Be Ava...:

Yeah Im not a fan of tge duel versions. I understand the connectivity thing to interact with otgers in order to get those 5 or 10 pokemon you cant in the other version but its such an insignificant thing. What really erks me though is to hear gamefreak come out and say 'a new pokemon stadium isnt novel enough' "or pokemon snap isnt creative enough" for a sequel bit lets keep rolling out the horse crap double packs that serve no purpose at all whatsoever. To me its moronic thinking.



jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

I'm not really a fan of Platinum as their games don't appeal to me. As I'm not in much of a mood to defend myself I'll just leave it at that. I do however LOVE that they are assisting Nintendo in these endeavors and I feel they bring a much needed variety to the Wii U library.
The odd ball under sellers are like the secret garden for gamers... only those who own will ever really know!



jakysnakydx commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

@ricklongo haha I actually had a comment about tbis but resolved that its called mature because it requires a mature person to decide if they want this kind of immature content to polute their lives. A teen or child wouldnt know how this affects them.



jakysnakydx commented on Review: Bayonetta 2 (Wii U):

I'm not a big fan of Platinum games either. I just don't find them entertaining; extraordinary gore, naked disproportionate women and gun heels didn't do much for me to fix that.
I am glad that this was a Wii U exclusive however. Regardless of my thoughts on the content matter I am intelligent enough to know it has its market and that this market is otherwise unrepresented on Nintendo's hardware.until now and Devil's Third up and coming.



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

@Seraphna With the fact that I've been a game developer for several years and an in house financial adviser/planner for years before that.

It has been a personal creed of mine for years to cut the corporate crap and even out the income field which can only come by having modest expectations. A good product will sell and from my knowledge of game development there is more than enough money here to make a 2d side scrolling shooter/adventure title.



jakysnakydx commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

@wober2 Yeah, until Enron. Lol but when PS4 exclusive "X" and Microsoft exclusive "Y" tanks, i.e. most of the games in that last 3 years the media doesn't discuss MIcrosoft or Sony's financial position. There are a thousand reasons for that but I just wanted to point out that I'm sick of Nintendo being a scape goat here when in regards to raw standing they are the most financially secure in the video game division. Microsoft nearly sold the Xbox brand and sony has been in bad shape for years
It's just really annoying.



jakysnakydx commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):

@DiscoGentleman This is some 3 months late, but absolutely. When someone's head is so far up their own bum they think the sky is blackish red you can't argue with them. They are only defending what they see although they are looking in the wrong direction.
