momoiiru commented on More North American Women Own A Games Console ...:

@SushiGummy Don't miss the point - did I say that the study was accurate? I don't mean "more women than men", bad wording on my part, I mean more women in general are playing games. Hence studies like this help to show companies that they can't keep pretending women don't play games. Games aren't just for boys, there are women out there.
Again "Whether you find it definitive of the truth or not is your prerogative".



momoiiru commented on More North American Women Own A Games Console ...:

@Quorthon YES THIS!

People will always be so quick to try and find ways to disprove all studies that suggest women play more games than men. Studies like this only go to show that more women DO play games — that gaming isn't just a big 'boy's club' (because it isn't). Whether you find it definitive of the truth or not is your prerogative but don't base your reasoning on your social circle.



momoiiru commented on Michael Pachter Thinks Miitomo Will Have Troub...:

I don't think that Miitomo is a game, but I don't think it's a social networking app either. It's more like a hybrid. So I'm not going to condemn it based on screenshots and other people deciding (whether right or wrong) that it is a SNS. I think there are plenty of people, across any age group who can find fun in this (don't forget, just because you wouldn't use it, doesn't mean someone else your age and gender won't either), subjecting it to useless because it's a) not what you expected and b) not what you wanted isn't a fair assessment. We have to wait until March 2016 before we place judgement on the product itself.
But I think we can all agree that whether you think Pachter is right or wrong, he's still a little bit of an idiot



momoiiru commented on Man Goes On Quest To Buy Every Single amiibo I...:

Honestly, in my corner of Australia (Perth, West Aust.) in the initial waves there was as much of a drought as there was in the US. Although pre-ordering was MUCH easier as they didn't sell out in mere hours, there was still hoops to jump through to get them. But then the restocks came and what was once 'rare' is now relatively easy to find.

I would assume that a similar rollout is planned for the US, but stock here now is what it should have been at launch everywhere. Easy for people to be able to buy or get into, not the ridiculous mad rush it became.
Patience, NA friends! Your restocks are coming!



momoiiru commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Dismissal of Chris P...:

My 2 cents for 2 cents sake: It's business. It is how it is. Sure, I would be devastated, but at the same time, speaking ill of a company I currently work at and getting fired because of it would not come as much of a surprise. Sure, some see it as outdated, but that's how it is for MOST businesses.
It's all good and well to go "wow they don't care about him or his family or the fact that it's his dream job" when he of his own admission went against what was allowed, putting his job at risk and his family at risk, his benefits at risk... He did that himself, knowingly, and did it anyway. Despite whether it's an issue of "outdated or not" that doesn't change the facts and that doesn't get him his job back.
I appreciate when people show compassion like the author and most of the people in the comments. I believe he truly is sorry for speaking out of term. But having been on both sides, sometimes, it's not personal; it's just business.



momoiiru commented on Nintendo Stock Value Rises Following Better Th...:

Typically only read a few comments to see what the general community are feeling about each article (and also because some good discussions have been brought about). But it's really unnerving reading some the comments, as it generally is with articles on finances.
I'm not going to comment about how "I think" Nintendo will do this or that (Because who knows? A CEO hasn't even been chosen yet so to say that "They will go in the way of mobile for sure" is an empty statement). But I really don't care much either. The future brings what the future brings. Never forget your money speaks louder than your words.

Discussion over "stock spikes after Iwata-san's death" is pretty disrespectful. Show some respect for those who are impacted by the passing of someone, the same you would expect if it impacted you. If you truly believe that, that's your prerogative. But posting it publicly can and will upset a lot of people. Think before you speak, even on the Internet. Have some respect for Nintendo, and the community at large.
Have a nice day, please and thank you



momoiiru commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

Rest in peace Iwata-san. I'm so sorry your life was cut so short. You were an amazing man and a huge inspiration to a whole generation of people. Your ability to continue to strive for innovation amidst criticism was, and will be, admired for years to come. ❤



momoiiru commented on Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Is Basically ...:

I'm on the fence about this one. I'm disappointed it's not a main Animal Crossing title but at the same time I know I'll still enjoy playing it for what it is? I'd love to see more of it but from some of the screen grabs it looks like it'll still have all those cute/sometimes bizarre conversations and situations that was lacking in New Leaf. It looks like a mini game departure from the main Animal Crossing series that would be a nice accompaniment to a new main title and the addition of Happy Home Designer.
Also the placeholder price here in Aus is $99 including the Isabelle and Digby Amiibo - I'm taking it with a grain of salt because that's pretty damn steep.



momoiiru commented on Tales of More Super Smash Bros. amiibo Pre-Ord...:

In Aus I've had a really easy time getting the Amiibo I want, and was even lucky enough to secure a Rosalina in store on her release day (Someone had cancelled their order last minute and I hadn't ordered her). I have Ness on preorder, as well as Jigglypuff, Palutena, the pink Wooly World Yoshi, and a few more and I've not lost a single preorder from previous releases. Guess that's just luck though :/ sorry to everyone involved



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

Honestly so excited. Been a Nintendo fan since the 64 era (when I was a weeee youngin'), owned every console and handheld since then. I think it's great that there's going to be a big shift in Nintendo because it's them entering a whole new market with (hopefully) something excellent and new to offer.
Also the NX my body is so ready - Can it also please not include 'Wii' in the name? Thanks



momoiiru commented on Super Smash Bros. Continues Chart Domination i...:

Bayonetta 2 is doing really well imo - due the system it's on and how it's more 'niche' than other titles on the system (Anyone can play a Mario game but not everyone can play Bayonetta 2 due to age and gameplay style).

It makes me laugh when people say "That's because all the hxc gamurrrrs are playing Destiny and GTA hurrrhurrr Wii U is for losRRRS" I'm sorry, but I wasn't aware that the meaning of hardcore in gaming was limited to a specific genre or game? So I could spend over 1000 hours in AC:NL and still be a casual? Maxed out Bayo 1's hours and still be casual? Own lots of systems and play a wide variety of genres of games and sink thousands of dollars into my hobby and still be casual? Lmao



momoiiru commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

I fully support the release of this game FINALLY for those who waited! I hope it's everything you want it to be, and your sales prove that Wii U owners want Ubisoft games Good to see another 3rd party release, it's going to be a killer holiday season for Nintendo!



momoiiru commented on Feature: We Put Bayonetta 2's Nintendo Outfits...:

To everyone mentioning that they aren't sure if the costumes are preorder bonuses - they aren't, it's never been said anywhere (if they have then feel free to politely correct me). I'm actually worried that these are the ONLY costumes in the game since I loved some of the original ones (Like Umbra Witch!) since screenshots showing Daisy's costume being available only seemed to show the Nintendo costumes on the "costume compact" :S



momoiiru commented on Poll: Your Favourite Showing from Nintendo Dur...:

Bayonetta hands down - my favourite game, and when it was announced that despite denying the first game's port Platinum actually ARE porting the game with a bunch of Nintendo goodies makes it so much greater than getting a release month imo gotta love me some Platinum Games!



momoiiru commented on Animal Crossing Creator Discusses How Mobile A...:

There are actually apps like that (built by fans of course) that tell you about special events in all regions, give complete descriptions of every villager as well as what Public Works projects they trigger. The one I used to use even let you add what villagers were in your town so you could see when their birthdays were and what projects they trigger.

A Nintendo-built one would probably be far cooler and more interactive though



momoiiru commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

My own personal take on this - I feel like Senran Kagura Burst is being condemned sans context. Does this excuse the marketing material produced for the game? Certainly not. But when you're presented with a niche title meant initially for a Japanese market I feel like that is where it has to be looked at from that perspective when deciding whether it is worth a boycott or is simply a product of it's environment.

I bought it, I'm enjoying it. Do I feel offended? No, not really. Will some women feel uncomfortable? Probably. Will some men? Probably. I think in this kind of situation it's more a "buy or don't buy" kind of game. Boycotting it in the West won't affect it's creation in the East, it will only hinder these games being released. (And some may argue that's appropriate or not)
