@SethNintendo Agreed. Interactive media is individually reliant not mass reliant like movies.

Video Games are meant to be played not watched. I don't watch Let's Play videos by this principle alone because not only does it spoil the game for anyone, it also dumbs down a demographic. It's nice to have user based content, but Let's Play are something I would ignore on my list to watch on YouTube or other streaming sites like Twitch. I watched an SC tournament and it bored me to death, the same goes for the MOBA tournaments like DOTA 2 and LOL and even fighting games like MvC3 etc.

But that's not a knock on e-sports players though as I just find watching someone play video games, even if something big like Starcraft II or something quick like DOTA 2 are difficult for me to pay attention to.



link422007 commented on ​Feature: The Poor Career Choice of Super Sm...:

Being in an e-sports career is a tough call, although I can understand these people, they should have had backup plans in their lives to their career choices. Putting everything at stake with not fall back is absolutely an atrocious life choice and only filled with undeserved romanticism.

Going after what you love is good, but being smart about it is better.



link422007 commented on Nintendo and Universal Studios Announce Theme ...:

Either an Anchor's Away style Zelda ride or a "dragon boat" ride using the king of red lions.

Log Jam ride for DK attraction

F-Zero coaster with the cart shaped like the Blue Falcon

Star Fox and Metroid could be a VR type of ride like back to the future. Or laser tag.

Mario Kart derby

Pokemon Snap like ride

Kid Icarus can be the same like Pokemon snap but an on rails VR feature, kids will go ballistic with it.

Heck they can just make it like Nintendo Land and every kid and adults alike would go nuts.

>Implying that metroid was a system seller to begin with.


No seriously, stop deluding yourself thinking that Metroid can move copies. The problem we have as to why Metroid never sells is because of people having no interest despite fans pushing for it to be made. Metroid Prime, the best of the series to date didn't even move units for the GameCube era, what makes you think it will move now?



link422007 commented on Gallery: These Project X Zone 2 Screens Give a...:

Why do they keep pushing Yuri and Flynn into this? It'd make more sense if it was Lloyd and Genis or Lloyd and Zelos. Heck, maybe Shing and Kohak are better choices but Yuri and Flynn? But eh, it has Dante and Vergil, DMC never made it to Nintendo consoles anyway (shrug)

I'm hoping Nintendo finally lets their franchises crossover to this. Would be glad to see Link and Zelda, Fox and Krystal/Falco, Samus and Captain Falcon, Ness and Lucas, Robin and Chrom heck Mario and Luigi interacting with X and the crew with dialogue for once.



link422007 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Plans for DLC and Mi...:

I usually withhold my judgement on DLC depending on how much content a game can have. Everybody gets angry for inconsequential DLC yet when Valve does it on their games like TF2 and DOTA2 nobody complains and proceeds to meme the poop out of them most probably because of their community opening up shops and designing the same costumes to make a quick buck too but in the earlier days of "Heavy has a new hat meme" microtrans full retail purchase of games, everybody loses their shite over it.

So really, I don't understand why some are upset over it. People wanted Nintendo to get with the times and they did. They offered DLC because they're "modernizing" and that they're not "trendsetters" anymore.

It's the future you chose.



link422007 commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Knits Up Some Release Det...:

Going to buy the pink one for my girlfriend and one for me and my desk. She loves Yoshi so much that I think she'd go bonkers when I get her one of these and one for me for my desk for when children visit my clinic. That little thing would probably distract a lot of kids.



link422007 commented on Animal Crossing Helped This Artist Get Through...:

@Moshugan It's the same as eating your greens. But cancers are very specific in terms of origin, cell type, invasive nature and metastatic potential. Hodgkin's Lymphoma is, according to the cases reported, infectious in origin (30% of Hodgkin's Lymphoma cases have history of Epstein-Barr Viral infections) but most of the time we're still baffled as to what the cause of the disease is but we do know it has a strong genetic predisposition.

The study that I've read on cherries are so far inconclusive but we can't exactly recommend it yet because there's no study developed on actual humans and as we only know, Anthocyanin is more or less a phytochemical with antioxidant properties. Emphasis on antioxidant properties because that is probably why it was researched in the first place and why people concluded it may have use against cancer by targeting oxygen free radicals that make cancer cells thrive.



link422007 commented on Animal Crossing Helped This Artist Get Through...:

@SupremeAllah Innoculating cancer with specific viruses is the new treatment researchers are currently looking into. If I'm not mistaken, this is currently in their human testing phase with volunteers. Unfortunately because it's in testing phase, we won't be seeing this form of treatment en masse for another half a decade at least. My hope is that it comes out sooner because this would be a big help for many of our patients who can't afford chemo.



link422007 commented on Animal Crossing Helped This Artist Get Through...:

@Dolphin64 What is the basis of your assertions? Has there been a study conducted on cancers concerning the effects of natural supplements to a cancer gene like CA125?

That is the kind of dangerous thinking that people like you do without reading the proper materials. If you're going to assert treatment options, become a doctor first. I'm speaking this as a doctor who does research on medicinal plants.



link422007 commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

Make it like pokemon then and have this "Are you a boy or a girl?" question at the beginning and have avatars for them ready it's as easy as that.

Or, since the game is all about, you know, ZELDA, why not make HER playable?



link422007 commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

They don't want to take away games, huh? Not the moral police, right? She has merit in what she says, but she ought to commentate on her country's problem first before going after something so superfluous in the impact of culture. Sweden, fix your problems, please.



link422007 commented on Final Fantasy Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi Reall...:

@Kirby_Fan_DL3 Direct sequels very rarely do happen in Nintendo. Zelda only has 2 from its main line. Mario has about the same amount of sequels in its main line. Then again, it doesn't exactly have a story to begin with.

It's the other franchises that do have the sequels like Starfox and Metroid.



link422007 commented on Feature: Five Remastered Games We'd Love to Pl...:

Eternal Darkness is the game I want. We already have so much Zelda remakes this gen, that we'll probably have franchise fatigue after the latest one gets released.

Eternal Darkness deserves another chance. Not only was the game relatively obscure, it came at a time when the GC was on its last legs. They need to port this. That or give it an fresh HD remake and slap it on the Wii U. The only problem is, are gamers willing to buy that game?



link422007 commented on Weirdness: This Video Uses Super Mario Bros. 2...:

I didn't find anything profound and this did not leave me with a sense of things to ponder, actually. One, the question that is asked is left hanging and does not give answers to the viewer. Thus, people that are labeling this video as poorly researched and terribly executed is sound.

Two, It only gives sources to support their argument while not also giving an alternative. It is clearly biased and holds no merit to be considered intellectual. If this were a thesis, I'd be failing this for not showing any alternative point, poor methodology and data collection. I'd be sending this back to its researchers and suggest a topic that the researchers have no clear bias in.

This is straight up propaganda, intellectually dishonest and absolute garbage. It is better left said that the reader or viewer research the topics themselves rather than to listen to this tripe.

0/10, would not recommend this garbage and only wasted my time.

That being said, NL, you are better than this.



link422007 commented on Weirdness: This Video Uses Super Mario Bros. 2...:

@hiptanaka You give too much credit on innovative people and not to the environment that made capitalist ventures back then.

Miyamoto would not have made Mario if it weren't for a capitalistic environment, Sega would not have sprung up and put forth a challenge if not for this very same environment. Capitalism is not inherently evil, it is within the middle-ground that which makes it such an effective tool, the problem is, like communism, it has been radically twisted.

Ironically enough, this video with using SMB2 sprites, is one of the finest examples of Capitalism (the Video game Industry, whether we like it or not sprung up from capitalism especially in the era it was made and for the next era that came as well).



link422007 commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

A Fire Emblem show would be a good addition for this. Political intrigue, massive scale war, romance... Heck, make it all about Genealogy of the Holy War or Thracia 776 or Blazing Sword, that's the closest thing Nintendo has for a "Game of Thrones" like show.

Metroid is good for being more of a series or a live action movie while Zelda should be more like a movie rather than a series, or make it all like Tales from the Crypt keeper where Zelda should be told as a mini series for several parts per title before jumping the timeline. But if Netflix is going to make an original storyline, I sincerely hope its good.



link422007 commented on Rumour: Nintendo Removed Tharja From Super Sma...:

I call BS on that one from ESRB. It probably has more to do with Nintendo not wanting any more flack from people who will decry 'sexism'. Just look at what happened to ZSS. People were screaming it was sexist and a lot sites pandered on with that idea, but when Shulk was introduced just in boxer shorts, everything was suddenly quiet and you could hear crickets chirping with it. Nintendo didn't want that because well, because they don't want any controversial flack any more than necessary when it concerns their works ever since Tomodachi Life.

Do I think it's a cowardly thing to do? I would answer maybe. But do I think this is a sound business decision? It probably won't be necessary as a trophy or two missing is not something that would affect gameplay.



link422007 commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

I'm waiting for a review of this. I'm planning to splurge my money come November. I'll buy the console for the Smash Bundle, then buy Bayonetta 2 and wait for review of this game. Even if other people say it's not good on the others, I hear it still beats some of the others this year. Not top tier, but not exactly shovel ware either.



link422007 commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

@Henmii Many of those are unreliable. Besides, they're not admitting defeat, it's taking presentation a step further, to reach out to the majority that won't/can't attend E3. That's the point of Digital Events and puts the trust to the consumer themselves to decide. E3 isn't even an open convention, those are only reserved for an opinionated media that blurs the line of hard line journalism and spoon feeding editorials. That devolves the point of presenting it to someone like me who doesn't live in the USA, would not spend thousands of dollars to cross overseas, pay for lodgings, food etc. E3 is catered to big name companies, not to the average joe like you or me.



link422007 commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

@Henmii a much smaller live audience doesn't compare to a worldwide direct to video release, just saying. It shouldn't bother Nintendo, really. What with the press scrutinizing as of late, I'd take a direct over their commentary any day of the week.



link422007 commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

Nintendo Wii U

"Nintendo is too traditional! They need to embrace the modern times"

Nintendo announces no press conference but a digital event

"Uggghhhh, I wanted Nintendo to have a traditional live press conference!"

Never change people, NEVER CHANGE. LMAO



link422007 commented on Fresh Super Smash Bros. Screens Show Zero Suit...:

As it turns out, people can't stop b*tching about pixels that don't actually exist. Really, Samus has always been portrayed as a baddonkey hot woman and only now do the internetz decide to unleash their righteous vengeance and furious anger over a non-issue. And why associate heels to strippers? Tell me guys, or am I too stupid for not analyzing such an insignificant little thing enough? Just because Samus wears heels doesn't mean she's a bad type. Or am I just sociologically insensitive of such an issue that gives value out of nothing? I've asked lady friends about it and they tell me no. Bear in mind, I asked people with higher professional courses like doctors and lawyers so I don't really see the point.
