lividd3ad commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

Man, I'd really like to try Wario's Woods, especially for that price. The problem is I'd rather have it on 3DS as a go-to puzzle game (like my ambassador copy of Mario & Yoshi), but for that extra money I could get Punch-Out.

This is pretty much proof that we need a linked account system. Different prices for the same game on separate consoles is irritating.

lividd3ad commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

If posts from New Art Academy or even the simple drawing tools on Miiverse are allowed, it's ridiculous to ban screenshots from this.

I'm starting to feel like Nintendo is spiting its users rather than moderate user-generated content properly. A "report" function on Swapnote and mods on the Comic Workshop community would be far better than not allowing anyone to share anything.

I feel like this suffers from the same problem as releases such as Giana Sisters and Scribblenauts Unlimited - it's been around for too long on PC for it to feel financially viable to buy the Wii U edition. I'm certainly tempted by the PC edition right now, seeing as it's a measly £1.24 in a flash sale right now.

@FalconPunch Since when is gog.com illegal?

I really want this to be real (I've wanted to play as E. Gadd for the longest time) but one thing I've heard mentioned is that Battle Mode doesn't actually allow you to use the glider under normal circumstances. They may well have changed that for Bob-Omb Blast but it looks like that could be the downfall of this if it's fake.

ONM may be "Official", but as far as I can tell they've never been written from within Nintendo and most of the time they have the same privileges and information as other, unofficial publications.

"Exclusives" like this that have been tucked away without fanfare have as much relevance as if they'd come from NGamer or GamesMaster; that is to say, zero.

The second one could be something to do with their NFC project, because that sounds sufficiently big. Is that coming to 3DS or just Wii U?

Otherwise, it could easily be about Pokemon OR/AS. They had an X/Y developer roundtable last year.

@noctowl "Homophobia encompasses a range of negative attitudes and feelings toward homosexuality or people who are identified or perceived as being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT). It can be expressed as antipathy, contempt, prejudice, aversion, or hatred, may be based on irrational fear, and is sometimes related to religious beliefs."

That's the first sentence on the Wikipedia entry for homophobia, not that this story even directly relates to that.

I'm appalled that you'd suggest that people are not "entitled to 'rights'." Ignoring the fact that a right by its definition is something that everyone is entitled to, it's impossible to bury your head in the sand. Representation in media - be it video games, films, or anything else - IS of key importance and it's something we need. I'm not saying that Nintendo needs to start haphazardly throwing in characters of varying sexualities or that elude the gender binary, but surely a black character here or there wouldn't hurt, would it?

@kuribo4 Your point definitely stands in terms of inclusion of sexuality etc, but as far as race goes, inclusion is VERY important, especially in something that is aimed for children like this is. If a black child only ever witnesses whitewashed media, their view of themselves is likely to naturally diminish and they aren't necessarily included in what they are shown as "normal".

For what it's worth, lack of inclusion IS oppression. Lacking in black characters is racism, disallowing same-sex marriage is homophobia; you're essentially taking away (or simply not providing) rights that people should have.

That said, accusing the Mario series of being racist is ridiculous. Throwing in a "token" character for a spin-off game would have come off as patronising and altogether more racist than before. There is very clearly a conscious effort from Nintendo to include more female characters (Pink Gold Peach and Baby Rosalina didn't need to be included at all, but I daresay they were there to expand the female roster) so inclusion is something they're focused on.

That said, I certainly wouldn't be entirely opposed to seeing a black princess at some point in the series and would actively encourage it. Perhaps the next 3D Mario could have one.

Honestly I didn't even know there was a Bejeweled game on WiiWare, nor that Sneezies even existed. Makes you realise just how much more Nintendo are pushing digital content this generation; we get a substantial amount of hype and info about every game.

I have to say the trailer kinda turned me off the game. Graphically, it's nothing special and the framerate looked a little shaky in some clips. I'd be lying if I said I was excited in the first place (I'm terrible at FPSes) but this combined with the news that Europe won't get it until a long time after America (as with Mutant Mudds Deluxe, which we didn't get at all) leaves me with a sour taste in my mouth.

At least there's Treasurenauts.

lividd3ad commented on Nintendo Confirms Mario Golf: World Tour DLC, ...:

If I only I weren't so broke right now. I'm super interested in this game, and the ability to play as Nabbit looks great.

As someone who despises golf, the demo really changed my opinion on the game. If nothing else, it's proof that Nintendo needs to release more demos.

Well then, I'm not buying the game.

I understand the lack of same-sex marriage in games like Fire Emblem: Awakening (where the purpose of marriage was essentially to unlock children, although I don't see the reason for the lack of same-sex S-class relationships).

But Tomodachi Life is a simulation game built around the idea that you can insert your own persona into. Right now, I can't do that, because Nintendo refuse to push the boundaries of the vocal minority in a sadly very heteronormative society.
