@Captain_Gonru
Monster Hunter is actually not dependent on multiplayer at all.

It's highly recommended, and definitely the most fun and the preferred way to play of many, but the game has a fantastic single player campaign that is completely independent of online. And most people get at least 100 hours just from that. Heck, MH3U on 3DS didn't even have online- most people had to play alone

@NintyMan
Well first of all I didn't know voting was still open, but nonetheless I'm pretty sure most people who wanted to vote have done so by now, and it may be like the mail in ballots of a presidential election, for example. Sure there's still more votes coming in but unless it's neck and neck, it's going to be negligible. Certainly not enough to turn the tide.

Or who knows, Im just speculating here. But it seems like the most plausible explanation. Unless they just wanted to give fans something now to tide them over.

@mystman12
Keep in mind the entire Smash community was voting, not just you. You obviously wanted K Rool as a playable character but that doesn't mean he won the majority votes, or even came close for that matter.

He was probably next in line on the list after the three highest votes, or however many they're making characters for. Meaning he lost the vote but they're still tossing fans a bone by making a costume. Which I think is a very generous gesture. They could've just not done anything. And to be perfectly honest that's kind of what I was expecting- one character wins the vote and that's it.

Actually I still bought the faceplates regardless. At least the Fire Emblem Fates and Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate ones anyways.

What, you thought a little water could separate me from my Fire Emblem and Monster Hunter merch? Haha, never

Ya it's a solid game.

Personally I like the method and approach of Fire Emblem- a franchise of which I've never seen an equal (save perhaps Jeanne d' Arc on PSP). But for the Tactics styled approach it ain't bad. Especially for $5

@Rafie
At the end of the day, we're just people who enjoy playing games using a controller to interact with a displayed video signal.

Consoles arent perfect. None. All have appeal as long as you find games on that particular system you like playing.

I like the Wii U because every year I get roughly 8 good, solid, standout games to play on it (which averages to be one excellent game every month and a half). In addition to a good 25 amazing VC games and the occasional indie. That's why I like it. And it should be noted that at least 3 of those games every year are consistently top contenders for my fave games of all time list.

It's not a master-console that provides every game you'll ever want to play in your life. No console does that. Ya I'm missing tons of games on Wii U, just like I'm missing tons of games on PS4 and X1 and 3DS and Vita. Each system has a strong suit that it brings to the table, and I value each of those individually.

I love the Wii U for all it gives me, but it's not all I want. I love the PS4 for all it gives me, but it's not all I want. I love 3DS for all it gives me, but it's not all I want.

The fact is if you like playing video games and invest more than a casual amount of playtime every month, you're probably going to want to own 2 systems, maybe even more depending how much you play and how diverse your tastes are.

There's flaws with every system out there, I'm just too busy enjoying what these consoles DO provide to care much.

And maybe it's something where you have to own all platforms to understand this perspective. But I see most people so focused on what they're not getting that they never stop to appreciate what they are. As a true and dedicated gamer I commit myself to buy all platforms each generation so that I don't have to worry about coveting what I'm not getting. I can spend each and every minute of my gaming time appreciating what each console DOES offer. Which is as it should be.

@ultraraichu
It's actually not a Nendoroid. I was just talking about this with the OP, but that's the only Chrom figure to date. It's a Chara Form figure. I've never bought Chara Form before but when I learned they made a Chrom Figure I jumped on it.

I got mine off OtakuMode.com for $37 shipped (they had it on sale plus I had $5 in TOM points for joining). Cheapest I've seen it yet, in case you're interested. Also on Amiami I believe? Ya I think so

@TomServo_89
It kind of surprised me that's the only Chrom figure available to date. He wasn't in Smash so he missed out on an Amiibo (though I'm grateful for the 5 we are getting, but also no Figma, no scale model, no Nendoroid, nothing.

I'm hoping we'll see a scale model for Chrom at some point, although by the time the Cordelia statue releases, Fates should be released in the west. And I'm expecting the figures to shift to characters in that entry once it releases.

JaxonH commented on Awesome New Nendoroids are Unveiled at Wonder ...:

@ultraraichu
No, this is a figure of the character Marth, not Lucina who went by the alias of Marth. Two completely separate characters.

And I'm buying them all!

Just bought all 4 of the Monster Hunter Nendoroids, the Zero Suit Samus 1/8 scale model , Tharja (FE Awakening) 1/7 scale model and pre ordered the Cordelia (FE Awakening) 1/7 scale model, the Link, Samus, Pit and Dark Pit Figmas, and the eCapcom exclusive Monster Hunter swordsman figure in Rathalos armor.

And this baby right here

I just play video games.

And Wii U has some fantastic video games to play.

I cherish the system. I play it more than Xbox One or Vita, and about the same as PS4 and 3DS.

I try to stay away from all the politics and "logical reasons" why it shouldn't be admired (arguments using logic like "well game A, B and C isn't available, therefore system = bad)

Does it have its flaws? Sure. Do I enjoy the heck out of it regardless? You bet.

Reggie wasn't lying. Nintendo really has tripled their output in NA.

They just announced to the entire world the exact time it was going live, on one of the largest websites in the world and one that ships globally at that.

And it STILL lasted an hour.

I've had my wave 5a since they released in EU well over a month ago, BUT, this is for my sealed NA set.

Already got wave 5B which arrived the other day. And I've had Yarn Yoshi's for months. And got pre orders locked in for 8-bit Mario, Chibi Robo bundle and the wave 6 Miis already.

Hey I like the rjejr tin foil hat. It's rather trendy nowadays. And be sure to check the house for bugs so the NSA doesn't spy on you ;)

How's it been going lately? Sorry I haven't had much time to respond lately. Been rather busy lately. But hey I got a promotion to "Quality II Programmer" the other day, so that's cool. You need any amiibo? I'm selling off all my extras (had 50+ duplicates and it was beginning to be too much). Don't have but maybe 17 left but maybe there's something you've been wanting? Thought I'd ask before the rest are sold out.

EDIT: Ok I said "lately" like way too many times in those first few sentences lol

JaxonH commented on Nintendo Explains Reasoning Behind Upcoming Mi...:

Miiverse is not the N-Life forum, or Reddit. It's part of the platform ecosystem meant to facilitate user input into the gaming experience. As far as the 30 post limit, the way I see it is if you're posting more than 30 times a day you're spamming. And I hate it when people spam Miiverse. I go to a games community and see 17 consecutive posts from the same user, and another 50 out of the hundred prior to that. It's ridiculous. I actually commented to reply to this one kid because he had somehow managed to fill a community with over 200 posts. He literally WAS the community he was posting so much. And when I think about stuff like that I can't help but agree with what they're doing.

I'm also glad to see they're giving it an overhaul because it really needed one. Miiverse is cool but it can be so much more. And I hope to see them take it there.

@sakuraichu
Except for the fact that if I want to comment on a post, or help answer a question on topic, I may not want to weed through 37 irrelevant comments to see if the question has already been answered.

Eh, what a crock. Any game can run on any system. 25fps after a lousy 6 month is pretty good tbh. Had they invested half the effort into this version as the others they'd have it running just fine. Bunch of lying snakes trying to weasel their way out of responsibility. When they were looking for money it was a different story.

Take your game elsewhere and keep it. Cause I'm certainly not buying it- not on NX or any other system.

In fact I take that back. I hope they do port to NX just so I can have the pleasure of not buying it all over again.

Wanting a Rayman game like Rayman 2 is fine and well, but don't discount these games. Splinter Cell Blacklist and Rayman Legends are among the best games on Wii U. And personally I think Origins and Legends are far better than any of the previous entries...

If I didn't own them already, I'd be all over:

Splinter Cell Blacklist
Assassins Creed 3
Assassins Creed 4
Watch Dogs

Rayman Legends
Rayman Origins

You could grab every game on that list for less than $90.

That's the way to do it...

Wow, it's done with. He's actually gone and he's actually buried, and to think just a week ago everything was fine in my mind. It's all so sudden, and even now after the funeral, it still almost doesn't even seem real. Like I half expect to see him on the next Direct or something as if none of this ever happened.

I do think it's starting to sink in though, and full gravity of this event is beginning to become clearer.

JaxonH commented on Genyo Takeda and Shigeru Miyamoto Share Belief...:

Here's the full speech:

As we gather here today for a joint funeral with Nintendo Co., Ltd. and Mr. Iwata’s family, I would like to share my heartfelt condolences. President Iwata, allow me to call you Iwata-san, just as I always used to.

Iwata-san, you left us far too soon. Having just chaired our shareholders’ meeting the other day on June 26, the news of your sudden death has left all the employees overcome with a deep sorrow. The late Yamauchi-san passed the baton to you in naming you the president of Nintendo in 2002, and the two Senior Managing Directors of the company, Shigeru Miyamoto and I, have been assisting and working alongside you. Being rather short-tempered myself, the thing that I am most deeply struck by is that you were a true leader in every sense of the word, overflowing with compassion for people.

You always maintained a two-way dialogue, even with the next generation of employees, or with much younger members of the development and marketing teams, or with employees outside of Japan whose different customs and cultures can make communication challenging — sometimes even admitting your own mistakes to them. You demonstrated this through your belief that people could eventually come to understand one another, and your strong conviction that the best way for us to grow is through patient communication, even if it took several times, a dozen times or even seemingly endless discussion.

You succeeded in planting the seed in employees’ hearts that, in order to solve an issue, there is a fundamental cycle whereby you make a hypothesis, execute the plan, see the result and then make adjustments, and by which you have caringly nurtured these seeds to sprout and mature into plants.

Until now, our successors and the younger generation would take a few first steps and then look back at you for guidance because they could not tell if they had chosen the right path. Today they cannot ask for your guidance anymore.

However, I am sure that they have already made the firm determination that they will continue on their own, making the hypothesis, executing the plan, seeing the results and reflecting on the results to improve and adjust by themselves.

In the face of your unbelievable passing it will surely take some time before we can emerge from this deep sorrow. Please know, however, that the seeds you have planted, and the plants that have sprouted will put forth small flowers as they bring smiles to the faces of people around the world, blossom into a grand flower bigger than even you, our leader, Iwata-san. Together with Miyamoto and others of our generation, we swear in our hearts that we will continue our efforts so that, someday, we can report and present to you the blossoming of these flowers. May you continuously watch over and guide us managers, our employees and your family.

JaxonH commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

I do prefer the gamepad when it's being used, even for a map.

If the screen and gyro isn't being used for anything (like DKC Tropical Freeze) I prefer the Pro Controller. Because screen/gyro aside the Pro Controller is the better controller.

So it depends if the game is going to use the screen.

I can't help but wonder if this is an attempt to mask some glitch or poor frame rate while using the gamepad. Just seems like he wants us to use the Pro Controller a little too much

Yes and no. A lot of people just wanna play the games on the system, and there's quite a pileup of great Wii U games. I don't think it's QUITE time that they are winding down. I think next year is when that will start to happen. But, that still doesn't detract from all the games on the system now (and after this fall the library will REALLY be poppin off).

Its an investment for what is has now more so that what it will have in the future.

@rjejr
Well, I think the fact the swastica was part of a war is completely irrelevant to why it was banned a lot of places. That's just circumstantial coincidence. It's because of what it stands for nowadays as well as what the Nazis did. But it being a war flag is just chance- it could've been any group of people who did those horrible things- and a war might not necessarily have even been fired over it.

BUT. I do believe in freedom. And if some guy wants to wear a shirt with a swastika on it I think he has that right. At least in this country. I mean a lot lot of people have them tattooed on their arms- you can't exactly tell people they have to have their tattoos removed.

But I don't think 9/11 is more significant then any other number of major tragedies. It's like when I used to live in Dallas as a kid- I used to think it was one of the top three cities in the country along with NY and LA, and I thought it was always the center of attention. It wasn't until I became a teenager that I truly started to grasp how many major cities there are in this country. Granted Dallas IS big, especially with Ft Worth and metropolis connecting the 2, but the point is it wasn't as significant as I thought it was when I was living there as a kid.

I'm not saying 9/11 isn't significant- it's not every day the two tallest buildings in the country get brought to nothing. But I do think Americans are going to think it more significant than everyone else in the world who have had their own tragedies to deal with. It's also still somewhat recent (within last 20 years).

But anyways, I can't even remember what I was going to say. Basically ya, I get what you're saying about swastikas but most wars don't entail throwing 6 million civilian people in ovens and cooking them alive, leading them in gas chambers, and the like. It's the nature of those gruesome acts that really puts people off, the fact the swastika was a national flag in a war was just coincidence.

You're missing the bigger picture. It's bad enough they have to time their releases strategically around the 300+ games a year other platforms receive. To then make a list of the top 500 tragic events and have to dance around those too is impractical. And for what? Releasing a game on a day that coincidentally coincides with a tragic event of the past is not offensive to anyone, except those looking to be offended.

It boils down to what I said before. If 9/11 was the ONLY tragic event in the world that ever happened, ok maybe. But tragedies happen all the time, and have been for thousands of years. You make an exception for 9/11 you have to make an exception for every other tragedy that's ever occurred. Which is a list longer than you could read in a day. It's just impractical.

It's like expecting nobody to go grocery shipping on a day a tragic event occurred. Or expecting no one to go to work. Or video services to not rent movies.

Video games and current events are not related. What happens in the world sucks but you can't go expecting businesses to dance around every bad event

Like I said before, there would be no days left in the year to release games on.

Well, can't release on Jan 1st because such and such happened on this day and people died. Well, can't release a game on Jan 2nd cause such and such happened on this day... Etc etc.

Remember the date. Remember those who lost their lives. But don't expect the world to stop every time the anniversary of some tragice event [insert month and day here) rolls around.

Nintendo isn't a political party. World events that happened in the past are of no concern. And it's impractical to play musical chairs with release dates in each country just because once upon a time something tragic happened on that date on the calendar.

Iwata was their own, personal CEO. That's the difference. And he JUST died. They're understandably scrambling to figure out what to do next. It's not a matter of valuing one life over 1,000. It's the fact he was their CEO and he JUST passed. A person only dies once. The funeral hasn't even been held.

This isn't some memorial 15 years after the fact. He died 4 days ago. And he was their president.

World Trade Center victims were not Nintendo's president, and they didn't die last Sunday.

Tragic events don't mean every company across the world has to forever not do anything on that day. And neither does Iwatas passing. But its a ONE TIME THING. They're not gonna close Camp Miiverse next year, or the year after, just now, during the time of grieving

Ya this is one of the greats I've been waiting for. Now if they'd just release Sonic 3 and Sonic & Knuckles. And maybe if you buy Sonic & Knuckles and own the other Sonic games it could unlock what it did on the Genesis- sphere ring levels with Sonic 1, Knuckles in Sonic 2 and the new campaign for Sonic 3.

That would be awesome! But I'd be content just getting the games tbh

@rjejr why does it have to be a New York tragedy? Nintendo sells to more than just New York. They sell their products worldwide and Americans are no more important than Russians were the Japanese or the French or any other nation that has experienced a tragedy.

Should they not release games on the date the atom bomb dropped on Hirishima? What about Nagasaki? What about the day Hurricane Katrina hit? Should they not release games on that date either? What about the tsunami in Japan? What about the tsunami in Indonesia? Should they ban those dates from releasing games as well?

Believe me the list could go on- probably indefinitely. You make an exception for one tragedy then you're going to have the British saying, "what, so British lives are less valuable than American lives? You don't release games on 9/11 but you release games on 7/7? The day of the London bombings?

It's a no-win situation when you go with that approach. Yes there are plenty tragedies far greater than 9/11. In fact it pales in comparison to every one I listed above. Even if the tragedy wasn't as bad, where do you draw the line? OK so they don't release games on a day 3000 people were killed. Now they have to not release games on all the other days 3000 people were killed. What about the days were 2900 people were killed? Is that OK?

No. If you go to Wikipedia right now you will find a major tragedy on all 365 days of the year. You can't not released games because bad things happened on that day.

@rjejr

No I can't think of a single reason why not to. For the reasons listed above. If there was one single reason not to release the game then video games would never be able to release because there would be a reason on every day of the calendar year. Days of tragedies far worse than the 9/11 attacks.

Tragedies come and go and there are too many in history to start not releasing games just because something bad happened on that day many years ago. But with Iwatas death, it's fresh. They haven't even found a replacement for him yet. This is actually impacting their business whereas a tragic event years ago does not impact their business.
