minotaurgamer commented on Rumour: Metal Gear Creator Hideo Kojima Is Lea...:

Jesus, everybody is crying and whining about this dude. Even Nintendo fanboys (whom he crticized and ignored) are crying for him!

I never liked this dude and his arrogance disguised as humility. He is a broken filmmaker that ended up making pseudo-videogames and only had success because in the PS1 era, the only way to make games was making interactive movies.

MGS is an overrated gem. Dumb story, boring gameplay, clunky pace. if the MGS games were movies they will be on par with Michael bay or Uwe boll's works.

If there was justice in this world, he would end up serving fries in a Mcdonald's or making artsy stupid movies that nobody cares.

And I don't get why we have to know about this dude in a Nintendo news website? he has ignored and dismissed nintendo fans for decades. Have some dignity people!



minotaurgamer commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

I always advocated against the "Nintendo should go mobile" because what they really meant was for Nintendo to go 3d party and have the same disastrous fate it had.

When I read the news I was like "Holy s***t! Nintendo listened to the idiots! AGAIN!" And how I couldn't think that if every game jokernalism pages where repeating ad nausem "Nintendo has FINALLY gone mobile! woohooo!!!" headline over and over again? Then I read the summary at Nintendo's website and Iwatta's quotes and I finally understood that it wasn't Nintendo going 3d party (like the game industry yearns and wishes for) but simply looking for a different platform to expand.

That actually sounds more interesting than what the others sites have and still are reporting because it is Nintendo returning to their original plans of expanding and looking for new areas, like they did with the Wii at first before having cold feet and started listening to the game jokernalists, the industry and Miyamoto and returned to the toxic habits they did with the N64 and GC before.

I am happy for this. Its' like 2004 all over again when Nintendo announced the "Revolution" and NDS. I want to think they finally snapped out of it and is the beginning of the blue ocean they mentioned many times and left it down the way. Add that hopefully Miyamoto will retire someday soon and it may be a new dawn for Nintendo.

I just hope they don't screw it again and start listening to the wrong people..again.



minotaurgamer commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

Interesting. This kinda reminded me of the DS when they announced it, saying that it wasn't there to replace either the GB or consoles but it was a third pillar...

...but we all know how that ended (RIP GB)

I am interested. Tablets have disrupted PCs and closed the gap between computers and mainstream customers even more than PC's ever did. It was a matter of time they will influence gaming console.

I hope they announce more of this platform this E3



minotaurgamer commented on Nintendo Download: 12th March (Europe):

Metroid zero mission is a fun game but I never got the point for making it. To make Metroid 1 more accesible? that was already done with Super Metroid. It was a pseudo-remake of Metroid but much easier.

The last mission with zero suit samus was dumb and only a wait to make sakamoto's creep wishes. not to mention to push his "narrative" bs in metroid.

It's much better than M:OM that's for sure.



minotaurgamer commented on Eiji Aonuma Talks About his Journey to Becomin...:

BS. I am tired of Nintendo rewriting history over and over again.

He was hired because he made wooden dolls in college and miyamoto hired for it.

He HATED Zelda for chrits sake! He couldn't even deafeat the goddamn octorocks!

And Marvelous BOMBED in japan. HORRIBLY.

And he got promoted to Zelda? why?

Only because Miyamoto believed the fairy tale that he is a God and every decision he makes (like hiring a doll maker to make zelda just because) is sacred and undisputed.



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.)
