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 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).

@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!

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, fyi.so 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.

@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 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.

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.
