Make restrictions to avoid garbage: everybody cries and whines and treat MS/Sony like heroes (Seriously?!)

Lose restrictions to "indie" developers : everybody cries and whines and treat MS/Sony like heroes (seriously?!)

Nintendo: bad if you do and bad if you don't.



minotaurgamer commented on Timespinner Looks Like an Awesome Pixel-Based ...:

ANOTHER Pixelated "metroidvania" game?! seriously?!

What the hell is wrong with this "indie" developers? they fall in the same boring, repetitive, annoying cliches over and over again. PIXEL ART! OBNOXIOUS DIFFICULTY! CREATIVITY! METROIDVANIA! Geez! knock it off already!

No wonder they are "indie" making the same niche stuff for a mere cents.

This guy lives in Hardcoreland where "wii gamers" are stupid savages that have to be reducated by geeks and otakus.

If "wii gamers" wanted to play PS3 games, they would have bought a PS3. They didn't for a reason which they seem to ignore or pretend it doesn't exist.



minotaurgamer commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

woah woah woah woah....what the hell is wrong with you guys?! why are you so happy and cheerful that a GAME WEBISTE gives a thumbs up to a game system after years of ignoring it based on industry bullpoopsiedoodoocacapoopledoopledoggiedoops?

why are you giving so much importance to this? who the hell are they whose opinions are SO GODLY important?

They are nothing but a bunch of nerds get paid to talk about videogames and prostitute themselves to the industry. They are nobody authority only for the niche geeks and otakus. The rest of the world doesn't give a damn what a game website says about X o Y console.

You guys are really pathetic you know that? You have ZERO dignity if you feel BLESSED because an idiotic, useless, fanboyish webiste says yes to a game console. And also delusional.

No wonder why nobody takes gamers seriously. You are ridiculous.
Watch the profanity — TBD



minotaurgamer commented on The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan:

almost 20 years and people still believes that Nintendo chose cartridge because of "stuborness" and "conservativenes". It was more complex than that.

They chose cartridges because the RAM was very small for all the information it managed. It wasn't even Nintendo's idea, it was SGI's. The pitch for the technology was a very powerful and inexpensive console and small RAM was the solution. They agreed because of their bad experience with their snes cds projects, their quality control and what they saw a slow medium. why do you think they were making the 64DD.

It wasn't stuborness but naivity. It was a logical yet misguided decision. Besides, even if it had CD's the N64 had other issues like complex tools and hardware shortcomings as well as high costs. Just look at the sega saturn it used CDs. was succesful? of course not.

It's time to stop parroting industry's myths, grow up and stop revisiting history. It's ridiculous.



minotaurgamer commented on Eiji Aonuma Plans To Shake Up the Puzzle Formu...:

@MAB LOZ1, LOZ2 and heck even LOZ3 didn't have puzzles. Puzzles started to go nuts when aounuma jumped in and with it the series decline. He always talk about zelda's roots but how he can talk about them if he HATES the classic zeldas?! The only thing he knows to do are anime NPCs and puzzles. If this game really was acout returning to the roots' series then it wouldn't have any puzzles.

and no, moving a block to open a door is not a puzzle. Burning a tree to open a passage is not a puzzle. lighting a candle is not a puzzle.



minotaurgamer commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

Does nobody notice the awful truth beneath? is the same kind of gamers just moving around the same machines. the 3 machines have the same philosophy and aim at the same kind of gamers. There are no new gamers. No "expanded audience". No new blood. Just the same niche audiences around.



minotaurgamer commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

This was a very boring E3. Just confirmed why I dont care about the industry. I think I'll do fine with my wii u and 3ds for this gen. Not because they are the best but at least they are better than the overblown PCs that MS and sony have.

The only game from the whole E3 that caught my attention was star fox U.... and they didn't have anything substancial to show. just tech demos. sighs The new upcoming zelda looks beautiful. But I'm tired beautiful and quirky bishonen-anime-like zelda. I dont want another skyward sword animesque puzzle-fest. I miss cool zelda like zelda 2, ocarina and twilight princess. Heck even the warriors one looks more baddonkey and less girly.About Hyrule warriors, Looks fun but never played a "warriors" game. I don't know what to think about it.

I thought that xenoblade was dull and boring. only geeks and otakus like that stuff. This new one doesn't look different. I pass. Same with Bayonetta. We all know that game will bomb just like in the more "hardkurr" consoles, so who cares? captain toad, mario maker, the pain gun game and the figurines, steampunk gears of wars, itagaki's perv game...I don't care.

The pac-man in SSB announcement was actually unexpected and I liked but man, so many kids angry because pac-man is in SSB. They are upset because (insert niche otaku game character) is not there! It seems that is OK for Megaman and sonic to be in there but not Pacman. How old are these gamers? 10? some even wanted Goku?! RUFK?!No offense but Pacman is way more relevant and important for gaming than Megaman and sonic and SPECIALLY Solid Snake. Not to mention goku!

And whatever I'll say it: this way people refers to reggie fils-aime like some sort of baddonkey is stupid. Never saw what's so funny about it. In fact, when he talks he looks very meh and nothing outstanding. Oh and that skit at the beginning of the NDevent? that's dumb as hell. Not even Steve Jobs had such a huge ego. Seeing 2 important executives acting like teenagers is atrocious. Leave that to actors not them. I expect more class from big companies not YT teenage skits. Grow up.



minotaurgamer commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo's Big Day a...:

It was much much better than MS and Sony's sleeping pills but I expected more interesting content. I actually was more suprised with the announcements outside of the video like star fox and pac man in smash bros. Hyrule warriors looks fun but I am still not sure. I dont care about Bayonetta. That game will bomb like its predecesors.

I am not very excited about the new zelda art style. yes its beautiful but I am tired of beautiful and quirky zelda. I want cool zelda back. and aounuma always same the same stuff over and over again and always dissapoint. the game never cared about the roots of zelda which shows in his dissapinting games full of puzzles and anime garbage. I don't trust him.



minotaurgamer commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:

Ok so does the game actually have some hints about giving DLC? do they have a store in there or something? did the developers gave hints or some comments about it? no?

then what's the point for this absurd article? slow news day? make more misleading rumors so the nintendo fanboys start to make a tantrum when it wont be OBVIOUSLY confirmed?!

and they wonder why game journalism it's a joke.



minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: It's Not Too Late for Nintendo ...:

@Tsurii897 so? the game has been in the top 10 game sales since it was released physically. It means kids love it no matter what.

I think it will arrive but not this year. I don't know what is really blocking its arrival to a nintendo platform. Maybe miyamoto's huge ego and out-of-control influence is a huge intereference ? maybe Mojahng believes the "casual" and "hardcore" bullshit and doesn't cares about it? Maybe it is too late now? I wish I could know.



minotaurgamer commented on Feature: Memories of the Wii and DS Wi-Fi Conn...:

It was far from perfect but it wasn't as awful as the awful journalists and even more terrible gamers liked to portray it. It seems that the only argument they could give was the awful lag in SSBB. And yes it was awful but they mentioned it like there wasn't other good (even better) online game on the Wii. But that was constant in the past generation: bullying everything Nintendo did no matter how absurd it sounded. For a free service that used a very basic matchmaking technology it actually did a very good job.

The game I played the most was Mario Kart Wii. It was my true first online game and I loved it. There were only two things I didn't liked: the unfair scoring system, which granted more points and better items to the ones that had few Racing points, technically "punishing" you for being good. That was very discouraging. And second, Hackers. THOSE DAMN HACKERS! Because of those cockroaches I stopped playing it for more than a year. It get to a point that it was unplayable and the only ones having fun were them. I really really hope MK8 has a much better vigilance. besides that, MKWii online was the bomb and to date my favorite online game.

Other games I had that played over NWFC were Castlevania Jugdment, Tatsunoko vs capcom, Goldeneye, Call of duty modern warfare, Guitar hero 3 and Bomberman blast. Sold the former 4 ones, there was never anybody there to play GH3 and I actually forgot about Bomberman o_O

I am going to really miss my MKWii matches. But time to move on and wait to start the fever with Mario kart 8 soon Of course, the new Nintendo Network now uses their own propietary technology without depending at 3d party services and I know it will get better from now on but for their true first foray at online gaming it was very good and did a great job. And finally, screw the haters.



minotaurgamer commented on Japanese Retail Sales Struggle as Just 76 Unit...:

@S-Miyahon Tax increase, population getting older, macroeconomics turmoils around the world. This generation will be very different from past ones. I know gamers like to pretend it doesn't exist but the economy not only in the US but worldwide is not in good shape at all and it will take time to recover. LOTS of time. All industries around the world are suffering the effects, why would the games industry be different? If any, it has more things againts it.



minotaurgamer commented on Reminder: Nintendo's Wi-Fi Service on Wii and ...:

I'm going to miss my Mario kart wii online matches. They really bring me a lot of fun and good memories. Too bad than in its last years it was plagued with hackers and the like. But it was great nonetheless. I wish I could say the same about SSBB but well that was a pain in the neck to play. Besides MKWii and SSBB I also played GH3 and CODMW online for a long time but I don't have those games anymore. Anyway, thanks for the good times NWFC and godspeed.

@NiBar This has nothing to do with Nintendo's business. The gamespy servers are being shut down. I thought everybody already knew that already.



minotaurgamer commented on Rumour: Wii Sports Club Japanese Retail Bundle...:

The best selling game phenomenon of the last generation and last 10 years deserves much better than a suscription chooped remake. I know gamers like to pretend it never happened and balem it to some other dumb stuff but seeing that after almost 5 years there hasn't been a proper sequel is absurd.



minotaurgamer commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

Thr first 2 opinions can be argued and maybe have their reasons. I do believe too that the battle mode changes could upset some but is not that big of an issue.

But the last one is just plain dumb and stupid. Its far from laughable, it's pathetic.



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

"casual market"? that's a stupid myth created by the industry and more stupid is the people parroting and noding.

Just dance's sales are fine for a game that has been released non-stop for 6 years. It was obviosuly start to decline sooner or later. It has nothing to do with this magical "casual market" (whoever distorted that term deserves to burn in hell) and their nerd and geek support to the industry. If you make the same gamer over and over and over and over again, each year, with minimal changes people will get eventually bored. Why they should need 5 games when one does the job just fine?

It's ridiculous. Just finding excuses and issues to point their fingers at.

I am getting tired of this industry. It deserves its decline.



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Creating a New Console for Emerging M...:

@Dark-Link73 yeah you know that the world doesn't revolve around you? or that 99% of the gamers in here, inlcuding you, are actually more of a niche compared to mainstream audiences that won't buy a game or a console until there's something that attracts them or gives them sometghing useful in return?

Gamers. always short-sighted and selfish.



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

@RoomB31 No. The one that needs to understand is you, that those labels and myths that "casuals" (whoever disrupted that word should burn in hell) aren't stupid or follow trends. Those are the elitists gamers (the, ugh, "hardcores") that pay 200 for a game with an action figure or 500 dls for an overblown console, or the ones that want Nintendo to go third party.

@Peach64 And that's not a clue that making a console for the industry or fanboys or "the hardzcorz" is a bad idea? and those customers you insult calling them "casuals" are actually the ones that push gaming forward?

Wii U is exactly what was wrong with the Gamecube and what's wrong with the industry. The wii u is underperforming because it isn't for the masses, is for the fanboys and the industry and they dont want nothing to do with Nintendo.

This QOL platform, whatever it is but I said it before, IS NOT HARDWARE, can patch things right and bring gaming to the masses and release it from the hole it is right now. They don't need to make the same mistake sega did with the dreamcast. They need to swallow their ego (iwatta is not the only one to blame, miyamoto has a lot to do too) and make games for the people, not for them, or their kids, or the forum dwellers whom are toxic, selfish and blind.

Screw the "hardcores". Gaming is for the masses.



minotaurgamer commented on Review: Super Mario Advance 3: Yoshi's Island ...:

Great game? yes. Great Mario game? No. It isn't a mario game and has nothing of its formula. This was nothing but a Miyamoto stunt to avoid making super mario bros. 5 and he could do whatever he want with the mario franchise. DKC has more of mario than this one.



minotaurgamer commented on Talking Point: What We Want To See From Ninten...:

You guys just kept comparing them to smartphones and tablets. That's like comparing a game console to a PC. These are different machines with different purposes. They are different. They are meant to be different. They can't be the same. You just missed the mark and kept drinking the game industry's kool-aid.
