Nareva commented on Video: What Could Super Mario Galaxy Look Like...:

Other than Xenoblade, which I haven't played, I would much rather Nintendo worked on new games. If they do more HD ports it should be of older games. SMG is great, but way too recent. Maybe more GC games like Wind Waker, which was excellent.

Nareva commented on Video: The Dubious Charm Of Senran Kagura Burs...:

I really don't care either way if people want to play these kinds of hyper-sexualized games, but I find it somewhat ironic that Nintendo Life is so vigilant about protecting its readership from the corrupting power of "coarse" language in comments, but is completely fine with this kind of sexual content, once even chiming in with a breast referencing pun for an article on this game. For my part, I'm much more tolerant of "bad" language than I am of sexual language among my friends and in my home. I'm just curious why Nintendo Life is okay with one type of "adult content" and not the other.

Nareva commented on Bravely Default Producer Outlines a Continued ...:

I'm about 25 hours and loving it. The last half dozen RPGs I've played didn't hold my attention, so this is great. And I really love the ability to turn off encounters entirely. I rarely do it, but it's a great feature, especially when going through an area with weak enemies where battles are of no benefit. Looking forward to the sequel.

This made me laugh. I could imagine doing this with my brothers when I was a kid. It would be funny at first, then the humor would wear off, but stick with it and it becomes even more hilarious. It's certainly an achievement.

Nareva commented on Review: Angry Birds Star Wars (Wii U):

I had a lot of fun eating up time with Angry Birds in waiting rooms and between classes in my grad student years, but haven't played it for quite some time. And this is definitely overpriced.

Nareva commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Readers' Award...:

Strange that the best first party Wii U games and the best overall Wii U games were the same games, but in a different order. How can I go about my day not knowing definitively whether people like Pikmin 3 or Windwaker HD more? It's a nightmare!

Good list though.

Nareva commented on Nintendo Download: 26th December (North America):

@Beau_Skunk If you own a game on Wii VC and transfer it over to the Wii U, you will get a discount if you buy it on Wii U VC. NES games cost $1. SNES, $1.50. I've already done it with the two NES Zelda games and Super Mario World on the SNES. Unfortunately there's no similar deal for the 3DS.

Nareva commented on Review: NES Remix (Wii U eShop):

@jayclayx Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't online play cost something on PS3 and PS4? So not exactly free services then.

Edit: Upon further inspection, I see Home is free. If the price makes you unhappy, I suggest you skip it.

I'm really enjoying this so far. The stamps, like in SM3DW, are actually a really fun collectible. Making ridiculous Miiverse posts with them is pretty entertaining.

Nareva commented on Bravely Default North American Demo To Include...:

@JaxonH You talk a big game, a somewhat convincing one. I've been wondering if that would be to my liking. I've never been hugely into strategy games, but it's another genre I've wanted to try. If I do, I'll definitely start with that game. Thanks for the recommendation.

Nareva commented on Bravely Default North American Demo To Include...:

I just bought a 3DS XL, partly hoping to find the game that scratches that RPG itch without boring me to tears. I haven't finished a "traditional" RPG, by that I mean the old-style Dragon Warrior and NES/SNES FF, for over ten years. The grinding grinds me down until I just become apathetic and stop playing. I tried with Etrian Odyssey II and Shiren the Wanderer and, later, one of the revamped early FFs on iOS. I still like the idea of RPGs, I just haven't found one that keeps me interested. This meaty demo should give me a good idea if this game will do it.

@HugoSmits Dude, you did not just equate a female gendered character to a character with a handicap! You did not!

But you're right, it is Inafune's creative work and he's not going to let some low-level employee dictate how the game will progress. This whole thing is totally blown out of proportion.

@Yorumi I would agree that deleting her tweets was a poor decision. I also think if it's true that she doesn't know much about the series, people might have a legitimate gripe. That said, if it were a man, no one would be screaming 'bloody feminism' because of a female robot sketch and this whole thing would not be happening. If it were a guy, we would probably never hear about it because no one would care.

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@Yorumi I'm skeptical about the dishonesty and nepotism and I think they've both been blown out of proportion, and yes, done so because she is a woman or at least because she is not a man.

The claim of dishonesty is based on two tweets. One said she was "never an MM player" and another said something about MegaMan X being her favorite. That's it! Two tweets that seem confusing, but that could be easily clarified. Maybe she played X, but never played the originals? I don't know. I don't care. Calling someone a liar based on those two tweets is absurd and petty. How about, you know, asking her about it?!

And the nepotism, also ridiculous. She possibly got a job there because she has friends who also work there. How many people do you think got a job there because they knew Inafune? Is that also nepotism/favoritism? No, it's called networking, and that's how millions of people get introduced to people who are looking to hire.

And no, I would not defend some guy with sexist views.

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@HugoSmits Haha! A Christian robot. That would be something to see.

But you're mis-paraphrasing me. I didn't say using 'feminazi' hints to underlying ignorance, though that may be true, but to an underlying belief that women should not be making particular decisions.

But the Christian robot question is another false equivalence. Religion and gender are not comparable characteristics in this argument. Religion is a personal choice, rooted in society, culture and, often, nationality. Gender is a state of birth. We can choose our religion. We can't choose to be born male or female.

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@Yorumi I'll see your 'false bifurcation' and raise you a 'false equivalence'. Suggesting that by taking the stance I have, I am doing the same thing as those who are attacking this woman is ridiculous. The reason I believe the attacks are unwarranted is because I have actually paid attention to the 'controversy'. I commented here after seeing that many people on this thread were derogatorily calling her a feminist and/or feminazi while also admitting they had no clue as to what the facts were. They were buying into the hype of the story, that a woman was ruining something they love because of her political leanings, when in reality there is absolutely no evidence that she has brought any inappropriate opinions into the game development process.

But seriously, how can you equate my defense of her to others attacking her? Talk about a false equivalence. How else can I defend her for being unfairly attacked simply for being a woman without bringing gender into it? Do you also want me to end world hunger without talking about food?

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@Yorumi There's a way to tell whether I'm being presumptive. Just go through this thread and make a tally of all the derogatory uses of 'feminist' and 'feminazi'. When people use those words, it's a hint that underlying their ignorant, bile-ridden comments is a belief that women should not be making these particular decisions.

And your suggestion that people like me are defending her just because she's a woman is ABSOLUTELY TRUE! The only reason I'm commenting on this thread is because I believe this woman is being treated poorly just because of her gender. That's the entire point. If Inafune wanted a female character, no one would care, but when a woman suggests it, it's suddenly 'reverse sexism'.

Edit: added 'derogatory'

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@HugoSmits We're getting into the weeds here. I don't give a flying fart what gender a robot in a video game is. It just seems fairly obvious that this woman is being more highly scrutinized than any other employee at that developer largely because she has opinions and men don't like women who have opinions.

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@Yorumi I hope you realize the irony of this statement you just wrote:

"you shouldn't so quickly jump to conclusions, there's a lot of confusion here and she's trying to cover things up."

Advising someone not to jump to conclusions because they contradict the conclusions you yourself have jumped to? Priceless.

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

@HugoSmits If you believe the people working on the project should be huge MegaMan fans, that's fine by me. I understand that argument. But your argument against a female playable character is weak. Why does a female robot make less sense than a male robot in a video game? That's ridiculous.

Nareva commented on Mighty No. 9 Studio Comcept Facing Fan Backlas...:

The most telling part of this ridiculous discussion is that people are throwing around the terms 'feminist' and 'sexist' about this woman. Can anyone show me an example of something she has done to back up those claims? A female robot drawing does not count.

The only sexism on display here is by the fools in this discussion thread who heard 'woman' and 'feminist' and bought into it without the tiniest bit of research. Have you ever even used the internet?
