Platypus101 commented on Project H.A.M.M.E.R. Exposé Reveals Torrid St...:

Well. Here may be an actual real reason why Nintendo development ain't doing so hot... Seems that this is an exposed incident (which rarely translates into isolated incident, in fact, the opposite is true) that finally came to light many years after the fact... Is this what happened with third party devs/pubs? Let's look at some of the older articles on NL that state (almost too politely) that Nintendo has a very Japanese way of thinking/conducting business... Concerning to say the least. And on top of that suck salad, we still didn't get a game!

@Kimite seen that tech... Still not impressive, even after twenty years of development. :( and no, it does not look at all like it does in the ads. I know people are gonna be up in arms that I said this, but i just don't care. Gimme a well polished game that's fun over "wanna-be" VR anyway. AR what we got after VR failed to produce uniform results. Can't wait for this fad to die yet again (what would this be, it's third or fourth death in twenty years?) but everyone will decry that AR is a step in the right direction....ROFLMAO, it's truly a step back from VR.

And still, the E3 hate continues... :( also, again with the armchair CEO's... Your ideas of firing Any of the three major executives at Nintendo would hold more weight of ANY of those demanding/requesting their removal had any experience running a fortune be 500-type company for the last ten years. Reading speculative nonsense about things a majority of us know little to nothing about, is getting weird...

Why not have an app like Google Hangoyts that runs in the background? THAT would be a much more welcomed addition than social media posts about nothing (I'm being mean, I know they are other people's thoughts and achievements, I'm just trying to drive my point home)... A voice app would go a long way to mend fences... For example, you could use your Hangout on your WiiU, 3DS or even your DeNA activated mobile. No matter where you're at, you'll have access to your gaming chaps! ;)

@rjejr I see, just because I'm a middle-aged man, you won't video chat with me?! Runs off into corner, crying ;) and um... "Almost zero effort w/ the mic, speakers and camera"... That would be AWESOME if they had, right? As it is, I have only used the camera ONCE (TANK, TANK. TANK) it is caps not because it's a must buy, because that's the way the title is presented... I used the Mic, wait, I forgot it had a mic... And as for the speakers, they have such audio delay, that unless I'm off-TV play, I shut them off. Wow. Thanks @rjejr for reminding what I really wanted and never really got from the Gamepad (just a bunch of empty dreams) :(

Wow... Is everyone whining about control schemes they have yet to touch? Weird. I understand the complaint over visual medium, but this? You ain't touched the controls yet! C'mon folks, this is insane, unless you have played the game in person, you're just trolling.

@TeeJay LOL! You mean adults... Kids aren't quitters. Adults are. I've watched my niece and nephews go for hours on a game they suck at... And they come back the next day and keep on truckin'... In fact they're pretty darned good at Tekken these days. ;) if the subject matter appeals to them, they will play regardless of whether or not they are good at it.

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Board Members Retain Roles After AGM ...:

@Will-75 what I love are all the Iwata hate posts... As if these armchair analysts knew a damn thing about business. Seriously, we're consumers, not creators. (And for those of you who say "I'm a creator!" lemme at your title so I can play it!) if they knew as much as they claimed to know, they would be running these companies, but most (if not all here) report to a supervisor at a job that has little to nothing to do with the gaming industry... :( 'nuff said.

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Didn't Mention Mobile At E3 2015 Beca...:

@hYdeks if you've been to E3 you wouldn't say that... Simply put, mobile gaming really doesn't require the same level of announcement that a console title requires... Many of the devs/publishers spend millions of dollars putting their display up for a single title. Mobile devs get a side table and what amounts to a podium (generally holding said mobile device) to demonstrate their title. All mobiles are in the same display area, no real differentiation from one pub/Dev to the next. Now let's look at the gymnasium sized rooms setup just for Miscrosoft or Sony or any other Console Developer...

@naantz how was the atmosphere? (I no longer have credentials to go) they closed out most of the outside vendors from what I could see. Friends told me overall the best looking (not best presentation) was Microsoft. :) Also, this years crowd was into hyper-violence like no other crowd... Eek.

@FragRed well, you know how it is. People feel that if anyone owes them an explanation (fan or no fan) it's Nintendo... Sony/Microsoft can showcase the same title from last years E3 and hardly anyone bats an eye, in fact, they cheer louder the second time around! Sure, THIS years E3 wasn't so hot for Nintendo, but hey, we got some nice titles coming down the pipeline (Still that freakin' game drought, again!). As for mobile at E3, yeah, from what I have seen there, it's all about console gaming... In fact the Mobile gaming area was open to the public a few years back.

I dislike having to vote "nothing for me..." For yet another week. :( about a year ago I was talking smack about all those folk that voted as such... Now here I am, doing the same :( thanks Nintendo, but let's try this again next week, with feeling! :(

Platypus101 commented on Gold Mario amiibo Exclusive To Target Australi...:

Ouch... This here is the reason I gave up on Amiibo :( I really wanted to like it, but these stories (along with my own personal stories) just turned me off to the whole thing... Now, if they came out with the cards perhaps I might gain interest again (as long as said cards include the rare Amiibo as well)

@chris_of_ws I don't know anything about programming, but couldn't they just patch up the issues? If it doesn't cost much, the music could also be updated (I know about music, it ain't cheap nor easy to acquire rights/composer)... :)

So... Where's this "female" Link everybody is talking about? Looking at what I see in this post, that's a younger Link with a crossbow. Sorry. I don't care. I was tricked into reading this article. Ignore my post after reading it.

@Kirk I'd like to look at your examples... But for lawds's sake, no screenshots?! I mean, I like YouTube as much as the next person, but you've typed up so much, I dont want to miss a word while watching eight 3-minute videos just so I can see AN example of what your talking about. Screenshot 1 second... Or better yet, just a game title showing these examples. :)

Platypus101 commented on Video: We Check Out The Squid amiibo Challenges:

Where are the darn Amiibo cards already?! Geez... Until I realized how many Amiibo there would be, I was on board to collect them all (no. No pun inferred) now, since the issues arose, and there are like 100+ Amiibo on the way... I jus want the cards (So they can go neatly into a folder next to my U) :/

Alright! :D Wipeout for Wii U!
P.S. How about we no longer talk about that dead racing project whatever... Like God of War and Halo, it ain't comin' to the U. ;) (Besides, let's stop giving them free publicity, no games, no publicity)

@Marec409 as the OP of this "debate" hasn't chimed in yet, I'm holding off any further comments concerning said subject (I get your point, I just feel we got trolled)... And yes, Sexism/Racism is a serious accusation, still don't mean people don't think that way. I, along with other minorities deal with it on a daily basis... On to the actual news: Did you pick up the bundle? :) since its for charity (and the only time I've given to charity is 1$ at the market, and I believe that was only twice) I was looking at 3$ per game with a 2:1 split in favor of the charity (since I own all but 2.5 of the titles already, one on Wii U but not 3DS)!

@Marec409 sorry... We got off on the wrong foot. As a parent that has sent his child to school for game design (if that's even a field... He's claims there's work at the end of the tunnel) and hearing about the sexism in the gaming industry, I have a bit of a skewed view. Supporting underrepresented people is a charity, because if someone didn't help us, we would still be without voting, or rights :(

@Marec409 so.. I may not have an opinion? I guess since I'm a minority, my opinion don't matter so I should sit down and shirt up? You can understand him, but not me? I said more than that one sentence (which you jumped all over), why no mention of the lack of real Dev support on his end? Oh wait, you believe the way he does... Cool. Next time though STFU.
