Coming from the standpoint of a developer not simply a user, Unity is a fan-f-ing-tastic platform to develop with Frankly, not liking to insult other developers nor their content, if a game sucks using unity it has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Engine and is simply a user error. Stay tuned for more content to come using Unity Pro.



jakysnakydx commented on Round Table: Let's Talk About Nintendo in 2013...:

@ThomasBW84 Haha, for sure, but what I meant by 'a while ago' is that one person will pose a question and then 3/4 of the way down the page another answer to that question is given and it's hard to mentally compartmentalize everything! Just following through on a suggestion for ever improving content. Furthermore, I do like the roundtables better (in retrospect) as it allows me to read during moments when volume may be inappropriate.



jakysnakydx commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

@KennyPowers Never denied that. Never said anything at all in contrary to that actually. I only said it's not an indicator or future success. Was blackberry's first 6 months any good indicator or where they are now? Classic example of course, but no it was not. PS4 is rocking it and I think it's a friggin awesome system but we don't know what will happen in 6 months because there is no such thing as clairvoyance and no one controls the entire world's buying habits.



jakysnakydx commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

@MAN1AC The Xbox 360 and PS3 sold like dirt for their first year. I would say it's unfair to base total success based on only a predecessor. The new Windows surface has sold significantly better than the previous tablet's with Windows OS but at the end of the day that doesn't really MEAN much. Comparing poop to dirt doesn't give you the bigger picture, you know what I'm saying?



jakysnakydx commented on Rayman Legends On Wii U Is Still The ''Definit...:

@blinkpunk02 It's true Rayman required it but what I'm stating is that it failed to execute. Whether or not the game expects something of you and whether or not it is actually developed in such a way that it always allowing that to happen with accuracy and/or precision are very different sides of the same coin. Any programmer can expect the player to accomplish a certain task but if the game itself does not guarantee a certain set of commands and expectations then its near impossible to accomplish said task. My struggle with Rayman was "Ok, it wants me to jump just a split second after that torch" then when I jump a split second after that torch it was then too far.. not just a little too far but SIGNIFICANTLY too far as though I should have jumped three torches ago. If a game wants precision it has, absolutely has to give the player confidence that when they insert a specific set of inputs a certain set of outputs will occur. I NEVER knew what pressing the jump button would bring when playing Rayman. It was just trial and error.... let's see when the game actually decides to cohere to a set of principles.



jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: Horror and Metroid Could be a P...:

I LOVED the tension brought by SA-X bit i dont think a metroid game oriented around horror isnt favorable. Its predominantly an adventure game which can be tense. I think we could use some more apprehensive moments however



jakysnakydx commented on Video: What Could The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward...:

I agree I'd rather see Mario 64 and other such games made in HD before the Wii games but here in Skyward Sword? I can BARELY see the difference. I'd MUCH rather Twilight Princess that could actually benefit from superbly good graphics.



jakysnakydx commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

The original Yoshi's Island is one of my favorite games. The sequel on the DS I actually didn't care for as it stripped the difficulty of loosing Mario to instead have instadeath traps everywhere. I'm ashamed and disappointed to hear this promising sequel falls drastically short.



jakysnakydx commented on The Legend of Zelda and Pokémon Are Doing Bus...:

Yeah but their crap is garbage. I could seriously pee in the snow and come up with something more creative.
EDIT: Monopoly is about real estate... they just took the most generic pictures they could find and slapped them on a board in Monopoly fashion, this took 5 minutes to create. I don't spend $45 on mediocre junk, sorry USAopoly.



jakysnakydx commented on Retro Studios Talks Up Wii U And Has Been Work...:

Anyone who thinks Retro isn't working on a Wii U game is in my humble opinion Naive. They are OWNED by Nintendo and Nintendo is going to use one of their most recognized 'western' studios to make something that will draw people to the Wii U. Nintendo has NOT abandoned the Wii U, that's not how they function; they're going to keep making it a viable system for a while to come now.



jakysnakydx commented on Investor Wants Nintendo To Create Mobile Title...:

Without seeming fanboyish, Iwata's statements at the last investor relations that they have a development crew to make 'small, interesting experiences' on smartphones is EXACTLY what I want. I want little time wasters that are free and stupid to take up 5 minutes of my day waiting between class or for the doctor, mvd, etc. Nintendo themes on all of these? Seriously, though, tempe run, candy crush, drawsomething, jetpack joyride... all of these would just seem fresh again if we had a nice Nintendo theme to them, getting us excited to come home and play some REAL video games.



jakysnakydx commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

@Peach64 Thevresson evrryone uovotes is because it isnt true. Take this into cinsideration. Please. The Wii U launch wasnt bad. What happened since thwn "PS4 will outsell Wii U 4-1 at launch", "ps4 will consistantly be sold out", Etc. ALL of tgese predictions were wrong. We do not know how well the ps4 will perform but the reasons people are using as 'proof' of future domination are barbaric. Unfounded. I feel there is a dip in the video game market and everyone is feeling it.



jakysnakydx commented on PS4 Launch Sales Close to Wii U Equivalents, 3...:

@rjejr just like many said that Wii U launch sales were by Nintendo fanboys we can probably say the same for the PS4. I think its time people (not necessarily you though) come to terms with the fact that Nintendos plight isnt due to its creating terrible systems but, like Sony's CEO recognizes, is a powerful indicator of the market as a whole. If the Wii attracted a large pool of 'non-gamers' why in hell did everyone assume that pool would flock to the PS4/xbox? Graphics were clearly not important and 'hardcore' games werent either so what changed? If Nintendo hasnt attracted that market than no one did.



jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: NFC And The GamePad Can Succeed...:

@adamical This is seriously what I don't understand. They made instead pokemon rumble U which in my frank opinion was a stupid piece of junk. Sure, it has a few kicks, but of everything Nintendo could do with NFC and Pokemon that was their play? Weak and ignorant if you ask me.



jakysnakydx commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

@BinaryFragger Nintendo has a legendary practice of being shady, lol. In the NES era especially when royalties to develop on the system were outrageous. This is part of what killed them going into the 64 and Gamecube. They were sill under the mentality that "Hey, we're Nintendo, we can do whatever we want and people are going to pay for it just because we're Nintendo." You know, kind of like what Microsoft is doing now. Needless to say Ninty did all kinds of garbage to kill the competition right after they became a prominent figure. I always find that funny... they just happened to get it right going from a nobody to a powerhouse seemingly over night and then commanded all the respect immediately after!



jakysnakydx commented on Interview: We Chat to BNC Design Studios, A Ne...:

Why are the pawns coins and Koopa shells? Honestly I think I could have come up with better ideas for the characters by peeing in the snow. Of course I know that chess set was made by USAopoly as well, not BNC, so I hope this new company can make better stuff than what we have now! Seriously though, the matching game they made is just copied and pasted boring images, it could use some pizzazz.



jakysnakydx commented on Watch_Dogs Delayed Again on Wii U, Will Arrive...:

I personally would wait. The game promises some unique gamepad only pieces that I for one am excited to use. There isn't a game on the market that I like better on other systems as the Wii U version offers everything they do (in terms of the actual game, crappy DLC policies aside) plus Nintendo unique offerings like Gamepad use and Miiverse.



jakysnakydx commented on Wii Fit No Substitute For Real Exercise Accord...:

I'm having a really hard time understanding why Wii Fit U isn't 'actual exercise'. Some of the balance games aren't exercise but that's because they are BALANCE games. We sem to forget that Wii Fit's real aim was oriented around posture and lifestyle not getting slim, fit and sexy. It's about activity and doing somethi8ng over nothing. Athletes aren't going to get the same effects by switching from their grueling track and gym exercises,. but the average person using Wii Fit U for an hour a day is going to find some great life changes! It's helped me, many of my friends and many I've met via the internet.



jakysnakydx commented on '90s Arcade Racer Targeting Mid-2014 Release, ...:

Daytona USA was an excellent racing game which I would love to revisit in some form. This looks like a day one purchase for me as if it even vaguely resembles the adrenaline of those games, it will be a delightful experience!



jakysnakydx commented on Nintendo's Slump "Could Be Detrimental" To The...:

People REALLY misinterpret tge market. If Nintendis doing poorly obviously its because xbox and playstation are doing better right? No, the other target a completsly different market. If ninty doesnt have tge family/younger/slash new audience no one does and that means no "hardcore" gamers in the future. without any new people getting hooked on games the more mature systems don't have a sustainable future



jakysnakydx commented on Feature: Breaking Down What Nintendo's QOL Pla...:

So I know my comments are going to get dwarfed in the grand scheme but it's worth noting still that Nintendo ha the opportunity to move into the 'way of life' if not only quality of life. For example, much like an iPad can be used to look up recipes while in the kitchen or a host of other things, so too can Nintendo do something (and i'm not specifically talking about Wii U or the Gamepad). Make a nutrition program in Wii FIt, combine the fun and feel of Cooking Mama with the use of actual cooking. Make life easier, in other words, or at least make it more fun!



jakysnakydx commented on A Tokyo-Based Business Will Get Your 3DS Runni...:

I remember using the gameboy player on my Gamecube (SNES too!) and I just love playing on the TV. It's true the resolution wouldn't be the same but that doesn't mean it's not fun! I remember playing Metroid Fusion on the big screen... that was great :P



jakysnakydx commented on Preview: Japanese Gamers Get Their Free Super ...:

Super Mario DX was a fantastic game! I remember hunting for red coins and yoshi coins/eggs very fondly, however just like Super Mario All Stars or even the Kirby anniversary edition, there are things Nintendo can do to improve on the formula. Look at Luigi Bros, the bonus unlockable in New Super Luigi U. You can't even exit the game without shutting down the software because NIntendo was too lazy to include a quit game function. For the previous two examples, a little updating goes a long way, even if in just functionality.



jakysnakydx commented on Shadow Of The Eternals Isn't Dead, But Don't E...:

Herein is the problem with Western mentality. No one individual is allowed to make a mistake. President Iwata with the flagging Wii U, Denis Dyack with Too Human. One mistake and burn them at the stake. Mistakes are obviously evidence, that their aoul has no more value. Mistakes, people are the method by which we grow and it is through mistakes that we see the path to greatness. What else has led to more achievement in this entire world and its vast histkry more than trial and error ans yet we ceaselessly punish those whonsee to try. Its of no wonder we sit and perish bedore attempting to succeed the way our peers sacrifice us for the thought of attempting. .



jakysnakydx commented on Lift in Chinese Console Ban and Market Fluctua...:

@Tender_Cutlet umm... yeah the local player thing ismt a problem woth the lack of kids. Especially simce most chinese keep theor circle of friends extremely close in terms of geographic distance. Itll be about brimging friemds over to play. As for Xbox. They are so clueless to the asian marketnits funny. They MAY attempt the 360 there but i doubt theyll see much presence at all. Look at Japan, very different yes but nonetheless a better indicator then nothing



jakysnakydx commented on Nintendo Download: 19th December (Europe):

Well that's the thing, Nintendo games don't generally have a lag. When they do however, it's part of a much larger strategy Nintendo uses. Similar to Iwata's statement on paying 3rd parties to include their games, discounting games offers the same pattern. Once you start, you just can't stop. Once a game is discounted due to low demand, we expect it. How many of us 'expect' Nintendo games to go on sale and wait to buy them at a lower price instead of top dollar? I'm willing to wager less than if we KNEW it was to drop price.



jakysnakydx commented on Feature: 12 Days of Christmas - Pikmin 3 Final...:

@CureDolly i havemt played the pushmo/crashmo series but ismt that true? Nintendo is almost incapable of releasing the same material twice. In most cases this is good with most sequels being a new take and keeping the series alive but in other cases Id like a true [Title] 2. A yrue seauel in other words. Same gameplay, new levels



jakysnakydx commented on Reggie Cuts North America's Biggest Wii U Fans...:

@ikki5 Haha, good system selection! I have two Wii U's as well, and 3 3DS's all the same colors/styles as you! Coincidence? I think not, those are pretty awesome styles... As for the biggest Wii U fans? I have to agree. There isn't a NIntendo game I don't own and those only account for half of what I have. So if it really is about biggest fans, I think it's lacking, but these things are typically left to chance so don't be too offended.
