Kyloctopus commented on The Man Responsible For Reviving Nintendo's Re...:

The guy wasn't given alot to deal with. Just a console that was seriously underperforming, but he did a lot of work getting the Wii U to it's indie welcoming status. I think Nintendo will continue the support and follow Dan's ways. But it's really hard to tell, because I don't know the bureaucracy within Nintendo.

Kyloctopus commented on The Legend of Zelda Monopoly Dated for 15th Se...:

Wow! Even the Oracle games get some love in this board.
My family and friends love Monopoly. We've bought so many different Monopoly variations: Original, 50th Anniversary, Vegas, Shrek, Jr, Disney, World, Cities, Canada, The Walking Dead. Heck, I just bought Monopoly Empire last week!
So, it's no doubt I'm going to buy this on day 1.

Kyloctopus commented on Talking Point: Deconstructing Nintendo's Retai...:

I've made a thread about it before, and I'll say it again: The Wii U eShop is lacking on original games - something it's thrived on in the Wiiware DSiware and even in the 3DS eShop does it have original titles.
Dr. Luigi, Pushmo 2, Pokemon Rumble U, Art Academy Sketchpad, Mario VS. Donkey Kong 6 all of it fits in sequels or new variations. Where are the original titles like Harmoknight and the Art Style games? No, it's not vital to the Wii U's life, but I'm not forking my money over to sequels of games I already played because that's not what the Wii U is about.

Kyloctopus commented on QOL Trademark Filings Point to Quality of Life...:

From what it sounds like, it seems like something that can draw consumers.
The Touch Generation games definitely stood out in the consumer's eyes considering how big Brain Age, Wii Fit and Art Academy turned. But honestly, it's much better if they took their own space, and drew away from Nintendo's handheld and home consoles.
1. It's these games that drew the DS to popularity, and it's these ideas that grew the DS and Wii into success, and I think Nintendo wants a taste of that 7th Generation success in the 8th Generation and onwards, while being able to maintain a gamer focus as well.
2. This will maintain Nintendo's gamer focus for future consoles. Never will future consoles from Nintendo have a general audience. It will have a more gamer focus, and might be able to get the 3rd Parties back into Nintendo's hands.
It seems like Nintendo will now split their completely general audience into 2 groups: Those that come for games, and those that come to get fit. With this Berlin Wall of an idea. And I think it's genius.

Kyloctopus commented on Areal Campaign Suspended By Kickstarter:

Considering it took $75,000 to make the most basic form of Shovel Knight and $500,000 to make Renegade Kid's FPS, I highly question of anyone can make a "AAA" multiconsole FPS with only $50,000

Kyloctopus commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

I'm sick of ignorant users talking as if all that's on mobile devices is utter crap. There are some really great games on phones and I hope Tim Stamper can improve the industry's look from people like the average Nintendo Lifer.

Kyloctopus commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I've played almost all of them, but I've only completed 3. :/
So really I can only decide from Ocarina of Time 3D, Phantom Hourglass and Four Swords Aniversary.
I'll go with Ocarina of Time 3D. Had I completed Wind Waker HD or Link's Awakening however, I'd probably pick one of those.

Spelled "peek" as "pEAk"
Is this a hint at EA being a third party for the Wii U again, and we'll see Amiibo for Madden, Dragon Age and Plants VS. Zombies games?
I guess we'll find out at Hyper Japan.
Oh no, it was just a typo. ;)

Kyloctopus commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

Looks like he learned a couple money making tips before leaving Capcom.
Why should we fund an animation, for a game we haven't even played? For all we know, Mighty Number 9 could be trash. Since he became independent, he has only made one title that was favored critically. Yet his other 2 titles. Yaiba, and Bugs VS. Tanks were critically panned (and as an owner of Bigs VS. Tanks, I can agree with the reviewers).
If you wanted an animation for your game, that would have made a great stretch goal.

Kyloctopus commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

I hate how alot of these N-Lifers are acting like elitists.
They're kids, do you actually expect them to learn about 25 year old technology?
The bestselling game on the Gameboy is Tetris.
Let's face it, that's not that far away from the quality you find in the average mobile title.

Kyloctopus commented on Sega Is Bringing Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI R...:

Dang! They couldn't announce this at E3? I put the localization announcement on my bingo card.
Anyways, being the rhythm fan I am and being satisfied with Project Diva, I'll likely buy this. After all, when has Sega released a bad rhythm game?

Tablets vary in sizes and main ideas. It just seems stupid to incorporate Microsoft's tablet in the same section as Leapfrog's tablet. They both have two different goals with the consumer.
I find that a family (community) tablet is not only a great way to entertain a child, but also a good way to teach them responsiblity, not really surprsing. When I was a child I loved going on kid-related websited, like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. It only makes sense that the following trend is practically a mobile computer.

I need to visit Toronto sometime soon. Make me some good selfies.
In one of my Christmas cards in Toronto, in the background has a very awesome spraypainting of Earthworm Jim, I wonder if this Lamb fellow is affiliated with that too. Would be a funny coincidence.

I can only play Minecraft with friends, and even then, it's tough to get me building objects in any game. With that said, I would love to see Minecraft U. Dual screens, Miiverse, Motion Control capabilities. I would buy the game.

Kyloctopus commented on Nintendo TVii Update Adds New Features and Imp...:

For the most part, I really don't care for Nintendo TVii. 1 reason being, I don't have cable with my Wii U, in the same room. It's a hassle bringing the Wii U to the living room, and there's usually a small reward towards it.
I prefer TV Tag for iPhone.

Kyloctopus commented on FIFA 15 Is Lacing Its Boots For A Wii And 3DS ...:

Some people should learn not to take this news emotionally. If you really don't care for EA, don't bother with this article.
First of all, this is not a dumb business move, because they really don't have to change the game, and Fifa fans will still buy it, from the bandwagon effect Brazil 2014 will give off.
Plus, this may be hard to believe, but alot of families still own and play a Wii. Hence why Skylanders Swap Force and Disney Infinity sold well on the Wii last year.
@jenkie What makes you believe that? Especially with Nintendo's 3 straight years off profit loss and new focus on a QOL system? The Playstation 4 has just topped the Wii U in sales and Xbox are on the way. I think in 5 years, the PS and Xbox line will stay intact.
Plus, how should that idea affect whether or not EA should release their game on a currently failing console?

Kyloctopus commented on Feature: All Of The Vital Super Smash Bros. Ro...:

I hate to repeat myself but
Pac doesn't belong in Smash
Unless, Nintendo has a surprise in the form of a Pac Man exclusive for Wii U and 3DS, Pac Man does little to impact Nintendo.
And with this news
http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2014/02/pac_man_museum_reportedly_cancelled_on_nintendo_systems
You would think that Pac Man wouldn't be in the game. But nope. Let's just add Pac Man in.
Seriously, why don't we add other random video game characters as well, since Pac Man's in. Chris Redfield, and Nuke Nukem anyone? They make just as much as an argument to be in Smash as Pac Man does.
