Recreational/Hardcore/Plain gamer.

United States

I play games a lot. When I do, I can be competitive, relaxed, calculative or festive. I will play all platforms, and I have no bias towards any since I can afford to play them all. That said, I damn any and all who practice console elitism and xenophobia.

kensredemption commented on Watch Dogs Companion App Updated For Compatibi...:

"The Watch Dogs companion application has recently received an update making it compatible with the Nintendo version of the game. By using this app, players will be able to play the game with friends on the Wii U or any other console / PC. Race and Free Ride modes are both supported as well."

Wait, cross-platform compatibility from a big name, third party developer?! COUNT ME THE F**K IN!

A lot of people are making a big stink over $0.30. Kids need to save their lunch money so they don't blow it all on porn or other age-of-consent sites. You'd be surprised at the kinds of stuff kids could see and hear on YouTube or Newgrounds and stuff like that.

The last time I saw my three year old nephew he straight up told me, "Fu** you" while I was setting up the PS3 I was giving to him and when I mentioned it to his mom she said he watches loads of stuff with his aunt on YouTube unsupervised. Yeah, I know, poor parenting on her part, but it'd be easier on parents and corporations just to do trivial things like implementing paywalls to keep kids from freely accessing inappropriate content as they have yet to be able to discern what is socially acceptable or not.

I mean seriously, what grown person can't afford $0.30? If the restriction was $20 then yeah, I'd be upset about it too, but it's thirty freaking cents.

kensredemption commented on Super Smash Bros. Takes the Lead in Japan Once...:

Meanwhile, Watch Dogs is nowhere to be found, Mario Kart 8 is still going strong and Destiny sales have plummeted while Smash maintains its position on the charts. Hype for excessively marketed, "triple-A" games does not last and barely breaks even with advertising costs, I'll bet. I actually feel bad for Ubi and also want to prove that M-rated games can still sell on the Wii U so I'll buy it. I'm just hoping they did something with the game pad like Capcom did for RE:Revelations.

Only the sheeple would allow themselves to be herded by these false shepherds of gaming. After Watch Dogs for my Wii U, I'm done with Ubisoft. Don't get me wrong, I still hope for third-party support for the Wii U and I'm only buying Watch Dogs as a last-ditch effort to try to prove a market is there for them to justify continued support. No one helps by buying their games second hand. Either digital, new, or nothing at all.

@Nintenjoe64 "DLC that might be part of a special edition released next yearmseems like another reason to hold out for Bayonetta 2....."

Unfortunately for you, Platinum confirmed that they had no plans to make DLC for Bayonetta 2 and that it would be complete at launch. There's an NL article about it from a few months ago. Stop feeding people misinformation.

If they remake the Dementium games for the 3DS and make new ones in addition to that, I'll definitely pick it up...Damn it. Nintendo's getting way too much of my money. The only thing I picked up for my PS4 this year was Ground Zeroes. lol

kensredemption commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

@Shiryu "I will buy it, full price even if the other versions are discounted already. I manage to remain spoil free up to now, so I will rather enjoy the ride. But when this games fails to sell millions, I just hope Ubisoft realizes most people are not as patient as me. A shame too, I wanted to also give them wvwn more of my money, as if they put the new "Assassin's Creed Rogue" on the system."

I managed to stay spoil free these last few months as well. Playing Final Fantasy XIV and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate helped, but now I'm all RPG'd out. I'm itching for a sandbox. I was going to give Ubisoft all of my money if they put Rogue and Unity on the Wii U as well, but they just had to get my hope up...heartless bastards.

kensredemption commented on Watch Dogs Stares at a November Release Date o...:

I might just be the most optimistic person here, but I'm not giving up hope of seeing third party support for the Wii U and I never will.

I was a little disillusioned because of what EA was doing at first, but I played Battlefield 4 and Titanfall on the PS4 and XBO respectively, and you know what I realized? We're not missing out on ANYTHING.

The graphics on BF4 are so horrendous, even WITH installing the data on your hard drive. Textures take forever to load in multiplayer and more often than not the connection lagged like a beast and sometimes the entire map would straight up disappear and all you'd see on the screen is the backdrop for scoreboards post-match and a crosshair.

As for Titanfall...the whole experience is just meh. It's basically Call of Duty with parkour and mechs. I'm a pretty average FPS gamer but the whole experience just left more to be desired. Garden Warfare was more exciting than Titanfall.

kensredemption commented on Square Enix Temporarily Pulls 3DS Dragon Quest...:

@Mega719 ...What are you talking about? SE stated that sales were already much higher than they expected, but since the 3DS player base has to access the game via the cloud, so many people trying to access the game within the usual timeframe for playtime made it impossible to even login. There's no console agenda in this article.

@DualWielding ...Dude, you have NO idea how much they LOVE MMOs. Nobunaga's Ambition and Romance of the Three Kingdoms were basically launch MMOs for the PS4 and Wii U respectively and they garner a huge following, albeit a cult following. It's enough that they keep making more installments for each franchise.

You people talk too much. In the time it took me to read 75% of the comments in this article, I'd have already completed a silver match in Mass Effect 3 solo. We're gamers, not fanatics or activists. Get back in the game, for crying out loud.

I'm sick of publishers and developers spewing that crap about the Wii U not having enough of an install base. It trumps the XBO user base by two million worldwide, but apparently that's not enough for these money-grubbing people. Ugh, that's it. I wash my hands of third-party developers.

@aaronsullivan "In other words, Nintendo hardware and games are still going to stand out starkly from what Microsoft and Sony are offering for a long time to come."

You know, now that I think about it, the fanatics drooling over the PS4 do seem to be...superficial in their support of the system. They're like a bunch of teenage "anarchists" who scream and bully others like rabid monkeys, but only wear it on their sleeves so they can easily take it off once the next big thing comes around.

@IceClimbers

"In fact, many of them also combine them with slot machines (there's a specific name for them but I can't remember what it is)."

Are you talking about pachinko machines?

Anyway, in regards to the article, first there's Hyrule Warriors, now there's Pokken Tournament? I really think Nintendo's snatched up Namco Bandai as well as Koei Tecmo as second party developers now.

kensredemption commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

@Williaint

"Another thing I find despicable, is the way that Emulators and ROMs are advertised over the internet. There are several "Why pay for these games, when you can play them free!" popups, or whatnot, on 'top ten list' sites."

You must be hanging around in the questionable areas of the internet if you're seeing ads like that. I frequent mainstream sites for social networking, media and gaming news and not once have I seen ads promoting flash carts.

Anyway, as far as the original topic is concerned, I base my decisions on one philosophy:

If a developer can no longer capitalize on a title, either through digital distribution or selling physical copies (pre-owned copies of a game does not give the developer any money whatsoever), then the use of a flash cart to play the titles in question is tolerable.

kensredemption commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

@DrSlump Yeesh. Grow up, will you?

I never say this, because the people who say this a lot are too cocky for their own good, but it applies here on account of the obscene amount of all the whining revolving around MK8.

Deal with it. I've dealt with it. #Acceptance

kensredemption commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

I think Nintendo might have Chuck Norris'd third party developers this holiday season. Ubisoft probably knew that releasing Watch_Dogs on the Wii U the same week MK8 came out wouldn't pan out well, same thing goes for trying to release the two new AC games alongside Bayonetta 2 and Smash. My budget only allows for 3 new games for the rest of the year, and none of the third party games are on that list. It's all Wii U exclusive.

"I totally agree. Nintendo has sold out big time. they worse than EA as far as im concerned. Seeing BMW in mario is a huge insult to the house of mario and just cheapening the brand.

we still dont have N64 games on the virtual console which will make nintendo money but nooooo they would rather sell out and make money like this.

Sad sad day"

kensredemption commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@Yorumi Be that as it may, they shouldn't treat Samus like she's the only one being "sexualized". If anything, real fans of the Metroid franchise know just how superhuman she is and how off-putting she can be lugging that heavy armor around all the time and constantly blasting away space pirates and aliens that by "sexualizing" Samus makes her more human and relatable. That said, the Smash games have always been about bringing Nintendo's mascots to a level playing field where they can Brawl in fair Melee contests which potentially means making the most remarkable of their characters unremarkable.

kensredemption commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

Okay, I must be missing something here because I'm seeing A LOT of animosity towards Nintendo for promoting Mercedes in MK8.

What do people think will happen when the DLC arrives? That the apocalypse is coming? That suddenly locusts will fly put of our bungholes and contaminate our food and corrupt everything we own? That people will suddenly combust for no reason causing thousand-car pile-ups and effectively sending thousands more to their deaths and we'll meet our end in a sea of fire?

Good God, people, grow up. Find something better to argue or debate about. Oh, I've got an idea! How about coercing EA to let BioWare bring their games to the Wii U? Same for Activision, Ubisoft and Rockstar?

It's certainly better than whining about petty crap like this.

As a testament to my spite for EA's deliberate negligence of the Wii U, I refuse to buy any EA games that won't be on a Nintendo console. That said, I WILL buy the ones that are on the Wii U, Wii and 3DS regardless of what it is to show my support for a more amicable relationship between both Nintendo and EA.

You know...I never thought about that before. How the Amiibos can be used across different games, and all. The Disney Infinity and Skylanders figurines are restricted to those franchises only. I wonder what Nintendo will do to link the Amiibos together across several different titles?
