Lostog commented on Shantae 3DS Virtual Console Release Confirmed ...:
the title is wrong: as stated in the announcement, the release date (june 20th) is a secret. so there was no confirmation at all for the release date (june 20th).
Lostog commented on Miiverse: Super Metroid - Too Taxing For Today...:
the only one i can understand is the one stuck in the part that requires you to use the super dash.for the others, well I never beat the original metroid, so i can kiinda relate (the problem there is either i don't know where to go, or i get killed before i can get where i want to, or i give up and play something else)in general though the solution is always the same: TRY EVERYTHINGunfortunately asking is included in that everything, and often comes up before trying the right thing. sometimes you just don't know if you have what it takes to do it.then again, JUST SHOOT THE DOOR WITH EVERYTHING AND SEE IF THAT WORKS BEFORE ASKING
Lostog commented on Thomas Was Alone Creator Responds To Nintendo ...:
@LzQuacker oh, so you're a teacher. well, it's not like there's only one way to teach. enforcing rules is typical of behaviourism, the most primitive and ineffective way of teaching (not sure if that's the word, i made i literal transation from my language)that said i'm not saying you shouldn't ever enforce rules, but if you want someone to learn something, giving them a goal is enough. if you make a rule, it should be to enhance the creativity of the student, not to limit it. "you can't do this just because" doesn't work; "try to reach this without doing that" is another thing. nothing is going to work if teacher and student have radically different goals to fulfill.more communication is the answer, not just random rules. sharing goals is what matters. for instance, i wouldn't be surprised if the next step from nintendo will somehow soften the blow.I just hate "STOP"s without dialogue. it's easy to say "well what you were doing was stupid so stop" if you can't understand the action to begin with, and don't find trying worthwile.that said this long comment wasn't fully directed at you, it's just the teacher thing that tipped me off (i'm not, but probably will be at some point, so i care about the subject)

oh NL swings arm

Lostog commented on Talking Point: DLC's Increasingly Important Ro...:
@rjejr: sure, it stands for 'downloadable content', but what is intended is, -extra- content for a game that already has some content. so an eshop game is simply a downloadable game; for the rest, yes, the distinction between free and paid dlc stands (and is used troughout the article). but, simply buying more in-game money is not buying content, so 'micro-transaction' goes for things like that. that's how i understood it anyway
Lostog commented on Mario Kart, Wii Sports And Animal Crossing Nam...:
pavlov anyone?no-one said videogames cause violence this time. @Grackler is spot on.
Lostog commented on Interview: Reinventing Castlevania For A New H...:
@Usagi-san: You're not alone. Search for NL's first impressions, they weren't exactly won over either. Personally, I don't see the appeal in the game, but other do, so to each their own!
Lostog commented on 3DS Version Of Super Smash Bros 4 To Be Shown ...:
@Lan: I think he means he doesn't want incorporating the peculiarities of the consoles (3D for the 3DS, the gamepad for the Wii U) to be the top priority. the incorporation will add something, but the game isn't built around that.
