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.

The Sony brand has unfortunately become a haven for the degenerates of the gaming community. Because of Microsoft's stricter online policies, persistence of premium subscription services, mandatory use of the Kinect, high price tag and hampered hardware, the dude-bros of last-gen flock to the quasi-cost-effective but still feature-packed PS4. That particular demographic alienates consumers from dabbling in video games. The only reason I had games growing up were because of Nintendo's reputation for being family-friendly, and I seriously doubt I'd have gotten into gaming if my parents knew I'd hear the F-word playing with other people every 5 seconds. If Nintendo goes, so does the whole damn industry.
Please don't use profanity here, even in example — TBD

I'm waiting for the Wii U release just to spite all the fanboys. Plus, the odds of there being another Assassin's Creed release on the Wii U this year is becoming more and more bleak...unless Ubisoft plans to release both Assassin's Creed Unity AND Assassin's Creed Comet on the Wii U - in which case, Ubisoft will get ALL my business this Christmas.

Oh man, come on NintendoLife, I see enough of these puns on PushSquare. XD Anyway, I don't much care for the written works related to the games. It usually messes up the lore. Case in point, Daniel Cross in ACIII and Kai Leng in ME3.

kensredemption commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

Holy crap, the UK can get away with a lot with their ads. If they were to broadcast that in the US, people would have a fit over the innuendo and the FCC would have a heyday with it.

Anyway, this objectification of women...I don't know. I mean sure, pixelated women are sexy and give me an outlet for my own insecurities and frustrations, but I know that real, respectable and powerful women are nothing like them. They're not vulnerable or prone to fighting in public with their midriff exposed, let alone their cleavage.

Games like this target a niche market - that of pre-pubescent teenage boys who stuff socks into their underwear to compensate for their lack of "masculinity". Well, that's my opinion, anyway.

I've been a loyal follower of Nintendo for decades and not once did I hype up expectations for anything they would make or develop. As a result, they've always been surprising me - and pleasantly so. It's kind of like watching a TV show: If you want things to turn out one way, it could compromise a lot of the universe. I get that Nintendo's trying to join the standard that MS and Sony set last-gen, but at the same time innovate gameplay. If the Wii U ended up being a PS3.5 or Xbox 540, I doubt I would've bothered with it. As far as I'm concerned, the Wii U is the only next-gen system.

kensredemption commented on Capcom Investing $80 Million in Two New R & D ...:

What they need really is a new IP showcasing their Panta Rhei engine that's accessible on all next-gen platforms. I was giddy when I read an article on here a few months back about its flexibility, but I've yet to see any games making any use of it. Deep Down on the PS4 was supposed to be the first. Exclusivity will kill them since it hampers accessibility. Hell, much as I want to play Dead Rising 3, I don't want to spring a good chunk of my income to get an Xbox One just to play it. More accessibility means a wider market and more opportunities for consumers to get their hands on it. All they'd need to do in the meantime is make sure people actually buy it.

She's never been sexier to me...but yeah, a busy lifestyle would hamper my gaming addiction. However, with the way things are now in the gaming community - splintered and segregated amongst the fanbases - I just can't turn my back on it. It's my dream to bring a platform brawler the likes of SSB and have mascots from all three titans of the industry together, and their fans along with them. NWU v PS4 v XBO players... -Sigh- You'd think that hyper-competitiveness would goad the fans into beating the crap out of each other online, yet some backward, degenerate trolls try to stop me at every turn...

@Retro_on_theGo If they'd been more specific, like ganging up on one player when their K/D is barely off the ground, would be a better way to state it. However, my interpretation of that rule was that the relentless targeting of a player whose skill was mismatched with someone far above their level or targeted for harassment would merit a ban for the perpetrator. Not the victim. This is done to make the online portion of the game fair, fun and civilized. Nothing more.

Nintendo will get more money for selling the 3DS version now and it'll help them fine tune whatever kinks they need to work out for the Wii U version later on. The new match-making system is boss and I will definitely buy both versions. I expected better behavior from Nintendo fans. These claims of doom and gloom are nothing more than perpetually ignorant memes.

kensredemption commented on EA Boss Peter Moore Apologises For Frostbite's...:

I still think those tweets were just to get the PS4 and XBO fanboys riled up. Gloating about how they always get the "mature" and "best-looking" games only to get backhanded by the publisher they love SO much by supporting the Wii U. Still, I can get why some people would think it was insulting, so I'm teetering on so-so right now.

In recent times, I've come to realize that EA KNEW MS would be in trouble with the XBO. They only just recently pushed out 4 million units (according to VGChartz.con) and that's possibly because of their decision to keep pushing back Titanfall for the 360 and making that new Plants Vs. Zombies game an Xbox exclusive. Some people just couldn't wait.

At this point, they're just trying to help keep the masses going forward and give MS a fighting chance next-gen because, let's face it, with all the useless gimmicks they packed into the XBO MS is just treading water.

kensredemption commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (North America):

Happy week for me, it seems. Ha ha ha. I've been meaning to wrap up Darksiders II, and my mom loves anything Hello Kitty related. That, plus I've been going rabid for anything that would promote cross-platform capabilities. For the first time in a long time, I'm dumping most of my paycheck on Nintendo. Woo!

@Senario I've spent plenty of time with Wynonna (Wii U) and Patricia (PS4), and I have to say that Wynnona's easy to sweep off her feet. In addition to her slender love handles, she purrs quietly when we play together. Patricia's very pretty and dominating, but she can be a bit sharp when I try to handle her. That, plus she doesn't moan quietly at all.
