manic221 commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

Is it just me that finds removing this feature more offensive then it's inclusion.

I'm a guy so it doesn't effect me particularly but it does effect girls and woman that have big breasts i feel like removing this feature is not going oh we respect women with big breasts i think this is disrespectful of women with big breasts

Almost like they're being shamed as they no longer have the option to make there character look like them...

I dunno this situation rubs me the wrong way any censorship does but i truly believe removing this should bring more criticism then celebration this is not a step forward its a step back.

Everyone is all different shapes and sizes and where possible in games where customising your character is possible that should be facilitated breasts are not to be embarrassed of them girls have them its not a big deal

As an addendum i also think this negatively impacts girls with small breasts god knows girls and teenagers are bombarded with these images of perfection all over the place the last thing they need is more. The breasts the character now has which is uneditable are still much larger then average which might make a girl with small breasts equally disconnected with the character and lead her to compare herself to this character thats not fair. As i said above bodies should be celebrated in all shapes and forms and it is not for anyone to tell anyone the way they should luck everyone is perfect the way they are.

Basically my rant is this is not a more "inclusive" change it's a much more "exclusive" and as i said that is inherently wrong in 2015 period



manic221 commented on Nintendo Advert Confirms November 21st Launch ...:

So after buying smash on 3DS and the special edition 3DS i have a whole month to save up to buy a Wii U and Smash U? Great stuff! lol

I did own a Wii U but i traded it in to buy an Xbox One. I kind of regret that though the Wii U has picked up a tonne of momentum since last year.



manic221 commented on Talking Point: The Growing Role of The Treehou...:

@AlexSora89 what games stay in japan and what games are localised has absolutetly nothing todo with Treehouse and everything to do with Nintendo.

Nintendo choose what games to localise then Treehouse are given those games to do there thing. Treehouse dont make any decisions about localisation

They just do the job



manic221 commented on Talking Point: The Growing Role of The Treehou...:

@DarkKirby someone wasnt paying attention. D!

They didnt say it was cheating they where explaining "the gentleman rules" the treehouse abide in there office while they play. They said that phrase over and over again "gentlemans rules" or "code of conduct" they didnt say it was cheating and they didnt say you had to follow them.

They where explaining how they play the game. Which is what was great about the treehouse they're gamers like you and i they play games and they even make up there own rules for the games they play just like i know i sure have in the past and im sure many others have.

As for "casual" not sure where that comes from these people spend hundreds of hours playing these translating and writing scripts before you even get your hands on it the folks at Treehouse are more hardcore then most of us and have the job most of us would dream of having.



manic221 commented on Sega Is Bringing Hatsune Miku: Project MIRAI R...:

I really like the Miku games and i'm glad to see them localised but it makes me sad that SEGA localise all these games and yet we still have no Yakuza 5 SEGA do you hate me?

Like i said i like Miku i own the other localised one on PS3 infact i imported Diva F on vita from Japan before it was localised..



manic221 commented on Persona Q Premium Edition Confirmed For Novemb...:

Wow that's impressive! Whoever s handling this well done you! Finally get your fingers out getting a version to Europe within a reasonable time frame cough looking at you P4 Golden and P4 Arena cough

Needless to say i'll be picking this up



manic221 commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

@MysticX There's some crap yes but no matter how crap 3DS games get none of them ever try to rob you out of money.

Plus theres these things called reviews if your not sure about a game check a few reviews before paying your cash to play it.

Or ask the often friendly staff in your local game store most of the time they'll have a good suggestion or two.



manic221 commented on Nintendo Supported Our Vision The Most, Says D...:

@Tsurii897 They didn't norwegian games got Darksiders. Aswell as Red Faction

On subject it's great to hear how good Nintendo have been with the developers supporting there console. This a game i never heard about until the announcement on IGN's post show stream and it looks great the gaphics aren't as polished as Bayonetta 2 but still it looks fine.

It's another one i'm going to pick up i think there could be a lot of fun in it



manic221 commented on Bayonetta 2 Director Eager to "Nurture" the Se...:

Wasn't a huge fan of the first Bayonetta but i'll be buying this not only to support Nintendo but also to support Platinum who have supported us so far... Also Bayonetta 2 looks like a marked improvement over the first so we shall see.



manic221 commented on Platinum's Hideki Kamiya Gives Smash Bros. Fan...:

I'm not surprised i'd have done the same thing the question were endless!

They deserved what they got, leave the man alone wait and see!

(the answers no) Sakurai wants Smash Bro's to stay Nintendo only characters he said Snake and Sonic were cool one offs but he's not even sure they're returning he also said Brawl is probably the maximum number of characters he doesn't think there should be to many more then that.



manic221 commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf Will Need Over 6000 ...:

@tchaten It's not from NeoGaf you can get it from your Account page from Nintendo on the 14th... he was just saying that a lot of people from Neogaf already know about it and here reckons Nintendo's servers will probably crash when people go to collect their code for Animal Crossing.



manic221 commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf Will Need Over 6000 ...:

@SuperSah Well i never go on Neogaf.. Again still don't know how many people are actually getting it free. But we'll see Nintendo's servers should be able to handle it. They're pretty beefy they handle NDirects with ease... Never once had their site lock up on me when watching NDirect and a lot of people watch those.



manic221 commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf Will Need Over 6000 ...:

@SuperSah Haha yeah hopefully not if not everyone knows about this way of collecting the code... Also i'm not sure how many people chose Animal Crossing for their game but i imagine quite a lot...

Personally i find it crazy they're offering animal crossing as part of this deal... Considering how big it's been in japan but hey i ain't complaining



manic221 commented on Pachter Predicts Wii U Price Cut, Feels Ninten...:

Patcher is just a moron Nintendolife why do you insist on continuing to post this mans garbage?

He also thinks "next gen" will effect the sales of GTA V... This the level of intelligence where dealing with here... For love of god please NLife stop stooping so low and giving this guy the time of day.



manic221 commented on Flipnote Studio 3D to Hit North America Early ...:

People are complaining about 99 cents? really people imangine how much the servers costs for Nintendo to run 99 cents a month is nothing whatever it translates to in the UK i'll be more then happy to pay that money.



manic221 commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Sketched In for 3rd July in...:

LOVED Flipnote on the DS even though i never really did much with it i just doodled and i think maybe only once uploaded anything, i still liked seeing other peoples creations i'll be happy to pay the subscription fee.



manic221 commented on Evidence of a Functional 3DS Flashcard Emerges:

@Marshi Why would they do that? When they have a really nice eShop set up where if they intend to give you demo's they can through the eShop Animal Crossing doesn't work for Demo's where would you stop people when they are playing the demo? After they pay of their first loan?



manic221 commented on Evidence of a Functional 3DS Flashcard Emerges:

@QuickSilver88 Actually not true there are several case where Nintendo bricked Wii Consoles of anyone dumb enough to update there console after they installed the homebrew this included (sometimes) forced updates on discs...

Sony is perhaps best known for it though a quick search you'll find tonnes of people talking about bricked PSP's this stuff happens you're breaking your user agreement with Nintendo because of that they can take any measure they see fit to stop you and the law will support them.



manic221 commented on Evidence of a Functional 3DS Flashcard Emerges:

@rayword45 Lol, Both Sony and Nintendo are known for bricking hardware there are several reported cases of Wii's be bricked when updated after homebrew channel is installed as well as many many cases of PSP's being bricked if updated.

By using stuff like this you are breaking you're user agreement with Nintendo the law would support Nintendo in any action it chose to take.



manic221 commented on Rumour: Nintendo Planning a 3D Mario Release o...:

Well if it's the same team as Super Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 which i'm sure it is by Christmas they'll have had at least 3 years on the game but i suspect it could be easily up to 5 years because i'm sure the whole EAD team wasn't needed for Galaxy 2 so i imagine the team was split after Galaxy 1 a small team worked on Galaxy 2 while a bigger team started work on the next game,

This is all just speculation but if this is true then they've had plenty of time on the new game and Nintendo don't usually have playable versions of games years before a release so i'd say this is highly likely.



manic221 commented on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Wii U Edition Coming T...:

£23.99 permanent reduction on the eShop now but at 16gb i'll need to buy a external Hard Drive first... (i have a premium but i don't want most of what i have left taken up by this...)

By the way can someone tell me why Wii U game files are so friggin large?! For example on competing consoles Assassins Creed III is 6gb on Wii U it's something like 12 - 15gb i forget exactly is their any reasonable explanation for why these files are so much larger?



manic221 commented on European Release of Devil Survivor Overclocked...:

@Tobias95 Artificial restrictions that's it that's why most handhelds up until the 3DS have been region free because there isn't region code for handhelds Nintendo trying to alleviate the rampart piracy of the DS days (which so far has worked as far as i know the 3DS still hasn't been hacked) impose an artificial restriction that stops games from other regions working.



manic221 commented on European Release of Devil Survivor Overclocked...:

@Starwolf_UK Have you never played a JRPG before? In Japan most of the time when talking to someone people will refer to the person by there second name infact unless you are very close to the person it is considered extremely rude to call someone by their first name in Japanese culture...

On topic however i'm sad to hear this Will probably still pick this up on Friday aslong as my local GAME have a copy and hope they patch it quite soon.



manic221 commented on Video: Wii U Menu Speed Upgrade Cuts Waiting T...:

@shake_zula If that loading time is "unbearable" these people you talk about clearly have no patience... That is really fast, about the same speed as exiting out of a game of an average to good PC... Probably a little better. Takes about the same time as my Xbox 360 probably actually a little faster the new loading screen is by no means slow.



manic221 commented on Video: Wii U Menu Speed Upgrade Cuts Waiting T...:

This was quick! i'm impressed now looks like it gets to the main menu way faster then my 360 does... my 360 only has 30gbs of it's 250gb HD space left so that could be factor... still i'm more then happy with 8 seconds... The loading screens didn't particularly bother before now i won't even notice them.



manic221 commented on FEZ Creator Insists The Game Wouldn't Work On ...:

Word from the wise (IE someone whose played this game) this is not a great game and certainly not one to get excited for, the platforming was really poor and slightly floaty in a very dissatisfying way also the game was just boring, trust me guys you aren't missing much just replay Mario you'll have more fun i guarantee you.



manic221 commented on Miyamoto: Mobile Competition Actually Helps Wii U:

@Jukilum Unlike Sony, Nintendo aren't part of the Blu-ray consortium meaning that in order to have a Blu-ray player built in Nintendo would have to purchase rights to use the device from the consortium and also pay royalties on top of that for each system purchased for a company like Nintendo who's only income is video games it makes very little sense to be paying all those royalties, especially when those royalties are in part going in to the pockets or a rival.



manic221 commented on Minecraft is Just As Likely To Appear on Wii U...:

@Astro Not likely your graphics card Minecraft "can" be CPU intensive and also requires a fare amount of RAM to run, your graphics card shouldn't be an issue with Minecraft, So i would suggest either your CPU speed is not fast enough or you have a really small amount of RAM...

Anyway as far as Minecraft is concerned not that bothered if it turns up on Wii U or not simply because ever since Mojang implemented the single player is really multiplayer aspect the game has just gotten worse performance "can" be sluggish and world generation is painfully slow... Atleast on my computer which used to run Minecraft without a sweat... I haven't played Minecraft since that version came out and still have no desire too



manic221 commented on Pachter: Wii U Will Sell Between 30 to 50 Mill...:

@Roynerer Nope sorry your wrong you don't have to go far to discover that the PS4 store will not have PS3 games in the cloud it's to do with the architecture of the PS4 which is completely different to that of the PS3 and thus PS4's will be unable to play PS3 games Sony already confirmed this. No PS3 games for backwards compatibilty and they haven't said anything about PS2 and PS1 games so the rest of your comment is absolutely garbage.



manic221 commented on Pachter: Wii U Will Sell Between 30 to 50 Mill...:

Seriously why does anyone listen to Michael Pachter? in all the time i've heard of this moron i've never once seen him get anything right... This is the same guy who said he would eat his hat if The Walking Dead won GOTY the guy hasn't got a clue what he's talking about NintendoLife should stop posting his rubbish and anyone who takes him seriously is beyond saving seriously.



manic221 commented on Update to Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate To Bring O...:

Getting this in april unfortunately got afford it when it comes out >.> Still not 100% sold wasn't keen on the original Wii Version because there where to many loading screens that is still an issue but they are much faster now...

My other problem is the hunt in the demo version of the game took me almost the entire time hitting almost constantly that seems like such a ridiculous length of time... I imagine this is much easier when there are more players by your side but on my own it did get tedious by the end.



manic221 commented on TT Fusion: LEGO City Undercover Could Take 40-...:

Can't wait for this game Day one purchase for sure! Can't wait to have something to play with my Fancy Wii U I love it but it isn't getting much playtime right now... But frankly i'm not playing games at all right now... So yeah



manic221 commented on Take-Two Snaps Up WWE Licence:

@edhe 2K are generally really good at supporting every platform and both of there current sports games are out on Wii U.

WWE '12 and '13 both had Online passes and season pass DLC but they where just extra wrestlers on top of the 84 already included in the game and frankly i'll buy DLC for extra wrestlers as long as the roster is as big as it was when it first started.
