mastersworddude commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Forcing people to actually read about a game instead of just drawing kneejerk conclusions from a generalized number is probably a good thing.

I wonder how many games that would actually interest and be enjoyed by some people were passed over by them because they skipped the review and decided 6 or 7 out of 10 isn't good enough.



mastersworddude commented on Exclusive: Lost Wii Game, Sadness, To Be Reviv...:

I'd have hoped you guys would clarify this story considering the "Developers" are a bunch of no name guys that do not have the money to make a game like this.

So if I say "I'm going to revive Project HAMMER" will I get an interview and article here?



mastersworddude commented on Ubisoft Makes Little Mention of Nintendo in Pl...:

You know it's bad when even Ubisoft tears away from your console. It's hard to see things turning around for the Wii U when 3rd parties are getting burned every time they touch it.

While I'm sure Nintendo fanboys would be perfectly fine with only 1st party games, it's not viable.



mastersworddude commented on Ex-Castlevania Chief Koji Igarashi Is Grateful...:

I hate the term "Metroidvania" It's used so loosely nowadays where any 2D adventure game with an interconnected world and backtracking is called Metroidvania. (I've even heard a 3D game Batman Arkham Asylum called Metroidvania. Really?) Just call it Metroid-like, Castlevania SOTN didn't add anything to the style to be included in the term. (Besides mediocre RPG elements, which most of these so called Metroidvania games never even have.)



mastersworddude commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

So from what I gather with these divisive review scores, it's an okay platformer, it's just not good enough to make up for the lack of creativity, uninspired graphics, bad music, and lack of Yoshi's island charm.



mastersworddude commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:

What the hell? The 3DS effectively has no way to message your friends now because Nintendo wants to play nanny?
Taking away basic OS features like this because some people use it inappropriately is really infuriating
At least give the 3DS Miiverse functionality before taking it away.



mastersworddude commented on Working With Western Developers Is All About T...:

@Araknie This doesn't make any sense to me, Donkey Kong Country, Banjo, Metroid Prime were developed by western game studios. I don't see why it matters, I play Nintendo because I like to play amazingly polished, traditional, feel good games, they give me feeling most other consoles and PC games can't. If a developer can help Nintendo to release games like that, they can be based in Mars for all I care.



mastersworddude commented on Mega Man FPS "Polarized Opinions" Within Capco...:

The Wind Waker comparison isn't apt since it's still majorly the same series, just new art style, but you still knew it's Zelda, with majorly the same tone.

This on the other hand looks like Dead Space or Halo with Mega Man slapped on it to appeal to the superficial western gamers. (Which is all Inafune cares about nowadays.)

It's not comparable to Metroid Prime either, since MP didn't completely change tone, it's still Metroid with similar ideas but in a new perspective.

If any comparison is apt to this it's DmC.



mastersworddude commented on Epic Games Rules Out Unreal Engine 4 For Wii U:

Oh man, all the hype from Nintendrones about 3rd party games on WIIU sure died down lately, Now it's just "I only like Nintendo games anyways!"
Remember when everyone was saying it won't have the same 3rd party issues the Wii had? Yeah.. Same problem again.
