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.

@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 http://www.gamespot.com/articles/microsoft-ceo-candidate-may-consider-selling-xbox-killing-bing-report/1100-6416052/ and sony has been in bad shape for years http://www.vuru.co/analysis/SNE/financialStrength
It's just really annoying.

@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.

Aria of sorrow was excellent but Dawn of Sorrow on DS was just magnificent. I REALLY hope we get another title in that series. The DS was good to castlevania. The 3ds entry was prety awesome but the boost in graphics came at the cost of longevity and overall size.

@Ren It's hard to expect a company to grow with you. Reading rabbit doesn't really appeal to me, nor does leap frog but I don't hold this harboring anger that they didn't advance to post college level alongside me. Their market is their market and you've grown past it, which is TOTALLY fine but don't demand they change or say they're 'stuck in the past' because they target the same audience that you once were.

@Senario I agree. I don't think that self proclaimed expert players have that valid of an opinion or should be heard more than others but I agree that they can be voluntarily learned from. The team at Sora, bandai namco and the big N can figure out how imbalanced the game is by watching these guys.

jakysnakydx commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

I have nothing against continuous flight games but what bothers me are peopl who feel this infringous on flappy bird. This concept was around far before flappy bd came along. I dont feel intentionally parying the flapping bird was wise however. A few s nprites to make a new themeheme would go a long way.
My only gripe with RC MMadiax is the lack of polish and depth. I mean keep the concept bu add better UI, better artwork and variety, a little depth. Shut the box is great but 2 or 3 other laypouts would take what? An hour? Add a new song or two. Better menus. Charge an extra $1. Ill pay for polish

jakysnakydx commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

Nintendo has a bad habit of remaking games too son imo. Supe Mario Bros DX, Link's Awakening DX being at the beginning of the race and Metroid Prime Triology coming out IMMEDIATELY after the third entry released. Donkey Kong Country Returns 3d being another good example.
Wind Waker HD was a good time frame. Skip at least ONE generation please. OoT should have been an HD remake and WindWaker I would have personally enjoyed far more on my 3ds

jakysnakydx commented on Interview: Eiji Aonuma and Yosuke Hayashi on H...:

I'm still not smitten by this game. I'm getting it for the fan service (I enjoy fan service, bite me) but in regards to core mechanics (gameplay, visuals, audio) - nothing.
It looks 360 - not terrible, but going for that art style means it will get dated quick. I'm not a Musuo guy. Hack and slash has it's appeals but the base set up turns me off. I'd rather just have a huge field of baddies than a map with 'strategic' points that I have to operate through with mindless drones for allies.
Even in the fan service area I feel it falls short. I don't feel the 'balance' is quite there. I don't see any real cross over - I see Warriors Orochi 4 with Zelda skins, weapons and levels. There is no 'Zelda' here.
I was actually kind of pissed off when the guy says "what makes a Zelda game? Oh the animations da da da da!" I call horse crap on that.

jakysnakydx commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

@Naptime85 I hear ya. I'm at the point where I don't have friends who play games like I do (i.e. people pay for cars, homes, families and other hobbies). Online is my only multiplayer.
Nintendo's choice to omit online isn't going to force me to go get new friends or coerce my current ones in to a slaughterfest - that's not fun anyway.

jakysnakydx commented on Feature: Hyrule Warriors - Everything We Know ...:

I'm a little miffed on the roster. Warriors Orochi had some 70 playable characters all with individual move sets? Hyrule Warriors, the love letter to Zelda fans, gets 13? There are PRIMARY characters that just got washboarded... That just tickles me pink here. Even with such a sparse representation instead of throwing in a ZELDA characters we get this Lana crap? I under Cia and Wizro and Valga. Cia is a new villain (awesome!), Valga is Volvagia (come on guys... we've even seen him transform now) and Wizro is a poe of sorts; at least these fit in. Personal feelings about Lana aside - I feel cut short here on the roster overall.

jakysnakydx commented on Dahku Creations Announces Departure From Game ...:

I admire Dahku and their attempt. I often wonder however if those were games they had dreamt of building or quick shots of creativity when they found themselves in need of ideas. Neither Chubbins nor soon shine ever appealed to me as I dont boot up a home entertainment center for a 30 second experience. Both lacked the level of polish and depth they were in need of.
I just agree with many of the opinions that have been shared: Dahku marketed their games wrong - they targeted the wrong market with the wrong idea with the wrong features and not enough raw power nor presence to force it through

jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

I don't understand why people hold the notion that offering DLC is low. Why are you so satisfied by the prospect of a game ending where it lies? I personally feel games should add to themselves to retain relevancy. Everyone hated Nintendo during the Wii era because their heavy hitters came out so early in the life cycle that no new first party content emerged in the latter years. If Mario Kart Wii and Smash or heaven forbid any of the others had been attended to like MK8 is, each might have had an even longer span.
My policy on DLC is make it content that the true fans will want to add to their experience. The basic back is for those who want a basic experience but for the rest of us who actually enjoy the game and want to see more of it without waiting until Wii U 2 in 2020 allow us please to be satisfied.

jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

@Tsurii897 I ABSOLUTELY agree. Mario especially is just absolutely meant to be a packaged solid game. I rather liked Super Luigi U but as we can all agree that was really standalone, it was even sold as standalone. In that sort of a game, I'd go back to buy new playable characters (Waluigi in New Super Mario Bros anyone???) but for some reason 3D Mario... it just shouldn't have anything.
Zelda I wouldn't mind seeing fan service DLC... for example Hyrule Warriors has bonus costumes and what not, while I'm not a fan of paying real world cash for virtual outfits, those are free depending on where you preorder. But If I had the option of throwing in some retro perks just because I'm so in love with them, I would.

jakysnakydx commented on That Shocking Pokémon Announcement Was Arcade...:

@Caryslan iyeah virtua fighter and the like are the ones you tend to see in the arcades but the problem is why vo and spend $20-$30 to plah a few games for an hour when you can do it at home. Arcades need to offer something you cant do at home to have the same level of appeal they used too.

jakysnakydx commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

64 takes the cake for me due to the way it let you learn the level piece by piece until you know all its secrets, galaxy never really let you get that familiar as you hopped around so often. The hidden stars were usually hidden not some bogus side challenge (i.e. collect coins in under 10 seconds/Mario Galaxy). I feel the simplicity of the structure mixed with the greater possibilities of HD would make for a fun, simple again, experience. Thats why I love the Banjo Kazooie games so much still, the literal sandbox explore every corner experience.

jakysnakydx commented on Review: IQ Test (Wii U eShop):

The problem with these fames, especially one man studios, is that games have so many areas of importance. Programming knowledge does NOT give you good UI skills, design principles or marketing ability. That, the marketing, is the underlying fault: marketing entails the design amd creation of the product. "Itd be fun to have an IQ yest on the eShop" there was however no discussion of scope, scale, audience, substitutions or compliments.
Ultimately its really hard for anything to become a masterpiece without additional input and help and properly idemtifying all of the potential the market has to offer. Shovelknoght did this... that game doesnt really appeal to me but they sire as HELL knew who they were aiming for and created the game around those points. As a resultthey succeeded beyond recognition.

jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: The Pokémon Trading Card Game ...:

@Kaze_Memaryu This is my stance as well. This is satisfying a insert size here demand but creates a much larger one that can't be won.
For those seeking to understand, Nintendo releases this game on iPad, the iPad community now wants Mario. Does Nintendo release Mario on iPad or not? If yes, then the dedicated game base is pissed, if not the casual Apple community is pissed and Nintendo's audience is fragmented.

I personally feel Nintendo's biggest mistake was making the bargin bin basement system again. Every single one of Nintendo's systems has been such and they feel this is the unique selling point of the system. I however argue it is not. The Wii is now only ~$100. Is it selling like hotcakes? No, because the interest is gone, it sold like hotcakes back at $250+. If the people are interest price is LESS of an issue (didn't say not an issue, I said less of an issue). Nintendo holds this notion that by creating yesterday's stuff at today's more affordable price it gains traction but I don't feel that has ever been the REAL case here. It has great content that if on even better machines would probably hold better in the long run.

The Wii U is awesome but I would have happily paid an extra $50-$100 for something better. I think the right approach here is to work with the gamepad to make it its own standalone device that can be played by itself or with the Wii U. The most advanced systems might have a Microsoft Surface tablet running with the Xbox one simultaneously, either or is functional but together they make a great and unique experience.

The gamepad could easily turn into a more portable tablet with an encasement that gives it the comfort it does now. THEN, we wouldn't have this battle. While I don't think smart devices are going to rule the world (the PDA sure as hell didn't) I do think there's a bigger trend to see here, that of portability, convenience and accessibility. Multifunctional, always on and always ready.

Also, didn't dynasty warriors on Wii U have some 70 playable characters? If Hyrule Warriors stops here I'm going to be pissed!
Saria, Tingle, Gruse, Aghanim, Sahasrahla, Yuga, Nabooru, Darmani, Darbus, Skull Kid, Makau, Mido, Barnes Prine Ralis, Queen Rutela, Ashi, Auru, Coro, Fyer and Falbi, Captain Skipper Gulley, Irene, Oren, Osfala, Rosso, Seres, Din, Farore and Nayru (oracles). I think we could all go on.
Fierce Deity anyone?

@AJWolfTill I feel ya! I think it makes sense though... so I'm torn. He's this dark creepy mysterious new enemy in twilight princess and then we fight him and hes this power hungry dweeb. But that's the whole point! He was a nobody who was granted power, his oddities show that gaining power doesn't make you that much more than who you were before. Still though, his voice is pretty gay.
