@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?

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!

@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.

jakysnakydx commented on Nintendo Confirms Two More Début Releases Com...:

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.

jakysnakydx commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

@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.

jakysnakydx commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

@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
