minotaurgamer commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Mega CD:

The sega cd wasn't created to compete with the SNES. It was created to compete against the PC-Engine CD addon. That's why Nintendo wanted a SNES CD add-on too.

Stop rewritting history to fill your fanboy dreams.



minotaurgamer commented on Dragon Fantasy: The Volumes of Westeria Advent...:

God, I'm so sick that all "indie" games are retro rpg pixelated otaku sleeping pills or medicore "witty" "metroidvenias" full of puzzles! why no making more fun arcade games?! oh right...most of these losers just want to be "artistic" and "creative".



minotaurgamer commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

I dunno what pisses me off the most: this guy spiting lies or the dumb gamers that believe them. I guess is both.

Zelda from 1 to ocarina of time were open world, specially the first 2 ones. Then came Majora's with its speedrun gameplay and WW with his boring empty ocean and Skyward sword with its on-rails world and now this jerk wants to pretend we didn't notice it?!

The day this guy retires I'll throw a damn party.



minotaurgamer commented on A Wild Update on Pokémon Shuffle Appears:

Hey is free, why not? got tired of tetris and dr. mario and I wouldn't pay for a pokemon product (not a fan)

But I agree, everybody, including Nintendo fanboys wanted Nintendo to be like other third parties and here it is. No reason to complain now.



minotaurgamer commented on Satoru Iwata Reiterates Plans for Quality of L...:

@electrolite77 As far as I know, the N64 has lots of third party games even more than the Gamecube and the Wii U (believe it or not there were lots of third party games on the wii but that's a different story).

Nintendo gamers started to buy less third party games because the core Nintendo gamers (the ones that started on the 2d and 3d generation of consoles, not the N64kids) don't give a damn about "artsy" games, interactive movies and overblown and way too expensive "AAA" games. Also the GC and the Wii started to have mediocre efforts from them, like watered down ports and castrated multiplat versions. That only made many Nintendo gamers burned out with their offerings and distrustful of them. It's a vicious circle.

Of course, that's not saying that Nintendo only makes masterpieces (their sick obession with 3D Mario, Sakamoto and his stupid maternal instincts and Aounuma destroying zelda) have also done lot of damage too. The Wii succeeded with the mainstream (wether peopel like it to twist it success and deny it, facts are more important than your tastes people) because it was more like the NES than the GC but is obvious that the real boss at nintendo-miyamoto-didn't like it.



minotaurgamer commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X eShop Page Points to On...:

@Dr_Corndog Get what? that is boring? that the battles are just moving icons while standing there with the button pressed? the the story is full of anime cliches and tropes? I do get that very well.. How gamers have fun with that? That I don't get. And after many years of playing JRPGs I doubt I ever will.



minotaurgamer commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

I wish that the "launched during the declining years of the X lifespan" myth would die. Pokemon was released launched during the declining years of the GB's lifespan and it was a success. Donkey Kong Country was launched during the declining years of the SNES's lifespan and it was a success. MM didn't surpassed OoT simply because is not that good and people didn't like it.

And 10/10? yeah, no that's stupid.



minotaurgamer commented on Developers Outline Their Ideas for Nintendo's ...:

"I could see Nintendo adapting a more open platform mobile OS (I.e. Android)"
That's stupid. Nintendo wont use an open OS and let it be wide open to any john doe with a computer. Not even the other companies do that, why should Nintendo would?

"My mind can't even handle thinking about what would happen if a next-gen console Metroid game and a next-gen handheld Metroid game launched on the same day"

Nothing. Metroid is a niche franchise for Nintendo fans. it is not a mainstream game and it sells would be amazing.



minotaurgamer commented on Famitsu Article Reportedly Inks Out More Splat...:

Voice chat is waaay to scary for Miyamoto

(yes I know he is not the mind behind the game, but he is the general manager of software which means he decides what passes and whatnot and seeing how he has being very internet-scared since the Gamecube era, is obvious who is the "genius" behind this stupid reasoning.)



minotaurgamer commented on Another Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter Batt...:

I have yet to see more useful, uh, uses for the darn adapter. As much as I like playing SSB with the GC controller, is not completly NECESSARY and can be perfectly played with the wii u gamepad, the pro controller or even the classic controller. Heck, my friend likes to use the wiimote+nunchuck and kicks my ass with it.



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Stays in Profit With Wii U on Target,...:

@Quorthon Of course if I ask a non-nintendo gamer they will tell me that the wii lost. S what? you can speak pretty and bold all the words you want but the truth is: THE WII SOLD THE MOST. THEREFORE IT'S THE WINNER. Period. You can move the posts aaaaaall you want but facts remian no matter how hard you ignore them and twist them.

The reason why the Wii was ignored by third parties and the industry it's much more complicated than just saying "it alienated 3d parties" and "it was fad". You can soft-hate the wii and all its sales but reality says and said otherwise.

Oh and no offense but anyone that says that the wii was "a fad that sold to casuals" is an idiot, a reason why gaming nowadays is garbage and I don't respect that kind of people.



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Stays in Profit With Wii U on Target,...:

@Quorthon Sorry but no. The Wii won the last generation, wether you like it or not. I'm tired of gamers trying to mold their reality to their own wretched definitions. And yes the Xbox360 outsold the Wii in america but how much time it took? 7 years!

In 10 years people will still remember the wii as a console in the same spot like the atari 2600, the NES and even the Gameboy. The xbox360 will be more like the sega genesis.



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Stays in Profit With Wii U on Target,...:

I guess is normal to see the 3DS slowing down. After all, it has been around for 4 years almost. Good to see the Wii U had some lifts there although it is as good as we should expect.

Seeing the Wii still kickin' around makes me very happy. It's a console that deserved much more dignified last years like the NES.



minotaurgamer commented on Watch: Catch Up With the North American, Europ...:

Way too many damn RPGs and Puzzle games. Seriously, is the only type of games they can do now? Otaku garbage? bleagh.

The Wii games on Wii U is actually cool. Too bad I already have those games though and I am not paying twice for them
