@Cyb3Rnite aww, you think I sound smart? GO TO COLLEGE! What I posted were facts (that by the way I lived through!). Please let the person that I replied to answer, if they did it take offense. Also, you should not take offense for other people... Let people speak for themselves (I said nothing offensive; except concerning my own country and its legal system)

@megamanlink the person that wrote this has no idea what "anti-trust" means. Petition or not, the united states legal system does not work like that (thank the lord, we already have a "sue happy" country as it is, this is the type of myopic thinking that leads to frivolous lawsuits). Also, does anyone really believe that Sony, (who, BTW, was left holding the bag as it were, when Nintendo got cold feet and bailed on the Playstation) would do anything to help out their rival? Marvel is killing of characters because they don't want ANY publicity for their non-Disney franchises. Think about it, that is some serious competition.

@The_Ninja good idea... No wait, the opposite on good idea. We're you around during the original console wars (Atari vs. everyone?) many of the issues during that period was the lack of actual first party titles... Many of the Devi/pubs made ports for every system... After a while not as many people bought an actual Atari... They would purchase the knock off at a cheaper price, then buy the crappy port for even cheaper (pac-man)... Lots of clones, lots of bad ports, that's what I remember. I love first party titles, let's leave each system with their own unique flavor. :)

@617Sqn Sony and Microsoft sell million copy titles each year, and every year we hear about layoffs and cutbacks, how this or that million copy selling game didn't cut the mustard, and now they are closing or restructuring... I rarely hear this from nintendo. Truth is, and I know a quite few of you will cry when I say this, Sony does not care about their console division now that it is a complete loss with no real profit... Microsoft keeps bandying the idea of shuttering its console division, when was the last time either of those two scenarios applied to Nintendo? See, nintendo just makes games... Not movies and computers, and TV's... That is why I chose Nintendo, if I wanted a Blu-ray player or laptop, heck, I'd go to Microsoft or Sony, because that's what they do. 'Nuff said. :)

@SockoMario what says he didn't listen to competitive players? Did he specifically say: "I ignored all but the noobs..." No. Did y'all not get your beloved gamecube controller? (Have no idea how that will make you a better player, but to each his own) have you played the game to see if it was unacceptable by your competitive standards? C'mon guys, enough with the "pre-hate", wait for the game release, play it, then make a judgement. This site has slowly devolved into the "I hate everything I don't have yet" site. Give games their fair chance in your console of choice. Thanks kids! :)

@RCMADIAX I have yet to play your game (more than likely not gonna), but I feel that most forums are filled (78% at least) with what people don't like, as opposed to knowing what they DO like. Seems to me, that if people are buying the game on the eShop (as opposed to whining about it online) they are at least playing it, which is a good sign... BTW, I stopped reading/posting to forums back in May, I made an exception for this! ;) p.s. I hope your next game does well.

Who says? I say by looking at your profile (don't forget that all the titles I mentioned are also reviewed on this site, you have yet to post hate there) . This is your first day... You show up to troll, then you latch onto the first thing you read... Calm down. I'm not going to argue your viewpoints... Just understand, @RCMADIAX did not rob anyone or mislead their trust. As they say "you get what you pay for" did you expect a high quality polished product for a dollar? Would you buy a car for 100$? When you pay 1$ for a video game there is a reasonable expectation that the game is not gonna be that great. :)

No abuse there... You buy we make it. That's how it is. How bout all the Barbie titles that are "crappy"? High-budget movie tie-ins? Any hello kitty game? Those are major developers, and they too are releasing "crappy" games... No attack on them? Just this guy? Is it because he actually READS these posts (unlike any of the corps that release the games I mentioned previously)? As far as "devaluing gaming as a whole" you should have jumped on that ship when Minecraft or angry birds was released...

@Quorthon you get what you pay for. Stop the whining... @RCMADIAX did not invent the 1$ game, all he did was follow suit with all the other money makers... I dislike shallow games on the Wii U. That being said, I'm defending the Dev because he did not create the market for cheap/free clones, he simply dove right in, and there is nothing wrong with that. Though, there is something wrong with people buying 1$ games (or not) then complaining about them not being cheap enough or too cheap, take your choice.

@sinalefa I know it sounds like a cop out with his statement ""y'all buy crappy games, so we make crappy games"... But when you look and see how much money these "crappy" games make (thanks idiots and trolls), it's no wonder there are so many of them (just checked the iTunes Store, well over 1000 games; mostly clones of each other). I respect your point of view (not want into support these types of games) but attacking @RCMADIAX is not the answer... Not buying (and getting the word out) is the answer. Yes, word of mouth takes time, but patience is a virtue. :)

Platypus101 commented on Rumour: Nintendo Will Reveal New Hardware At T...:

Hahahaha! LOL! Wow, I can't believe nintendo life posted an article that even IGN wouldn't post (I know corp workers there, they are told to post anything that resembles news! They actually DIDNT post this so, I can only surmise that this site was desperate for news...) Kinda ran into this by accident on a search. I actually stopped reading the forums, I know the majority of you do too (unless it's to brag about when and how little you paid for a game, or just to poo poo the Wii U.) I believe this site will be just as bad, if not worse than IGN in the coming years... I used to love this site. :(

@Samurai_Goroh I don't need to keep up with every single model of a product I bought and intend to keep for at least five years. Tell me sir, what were the last three models of vacuum cleaners released AFTER the one you purchased? See how silly that sounds? You may be taking this hobby a little too seriously...

I swear, this is the title every time for this type of article: "3DS knockin' the socks off everyone! Wii U doing poorly..." Not sure I wanna read anymore of these type of articles. Also, seems that a lot of Sony and MS players joined up specifically to bad mouth Nintendo's sales. Not really news at this point.

Platypus101 commented on Talking Point: Amazon Fire TV is an Early Warn...:

@Farmboy74 casuals... What is it that you personally know about them? How many do you speak with? Me? Quite a few! Casuals are done with console gaming. In the words of over 100 random people on the street, they have simply moved on or do t have the time (in many cases they responded with "there's something comforting about holding a cell phone" I'm paraphrasing, but that's how it comes off... :( let's forget about those that have discarded our hobby and concentrate on the coming generation of new gamers :)

Platypus101 commented on You Can Now Pre-Order eShop Games Via Nintendo...:

@PorllM I see where you're coming from... Seems more like a "impulse buy" kinda situation. You also, stated that you pre-ordered GTA V... That was a very popular title, not many folk that I know of that didn't buy that game ;) my assumption is that your network speed is not up to snuff, as I can usually buy large games and have them downloaded within the hour... But regardless, if the intro price does drop, then I can see myself enjoying this service. :) on the other hand, NFS hardly dropped in price on the eShop, resorted to buying two copies for 10$ less (yes, both copies cost less than a single download) on amazon... :(

Platypus101 commented on This Metroid Game Boy Advance Design is a Treat:

@bahooney now now everybody... I didn't denigrate mister aaronsullivan... I was just commenting on how quickly he has forgotten the magic of the original GBA... In its day. I'm sure he is correct, but there was no other point of reference "back in the day" (excuse the parlance). My current HD TV is way better than my old Sanyo black and white tv console in '84! That's not really saying much... Technology moves forward, not much we can (or should, for that matter) do about it, but let's not forget the days of old, when the technology of the day was moving in leaps and bounds to give us what we have today! (Like for some weird reason, GBA Games - in their original definition - in HD being a big deal).
Oh, and @sketchturner awesome idea... Kinda like Zelda got its own design!

Platypus101 commented on This Metroid Game Boy Advance Design is a Treat:

@aaronsullivan really? You're going to bad mouth technology that is nearly 15 years old? I'm sure when you bought your first GBA, your first words were not "what a POS! This screen sucks! Why did I ever spend my money on this?" You sound like those 9 year olds at the mall: " ugh... MOM! Why don't we have the NEW samsung (whatever the hell)?! This is last years model..." The GBA was the only REAL choice for portable gaming, there was no other tech quite as appealing... Think iPhones when first released.

Platypus101 commented on Electronic Arts CEO Discusses The Company's Pl...:

This article is a joke, right? I mean, these are the same people that didn't care to work with the gamepad, and that was established technology! This would mean starting from scratch and taking a big financial risk. Two things EA is not known for, (Not verbatim, but it is what they have been stating since their exclusion of their Wii U support, To be kind)...they will probably last as long as their support for Wii U. :(

Platypus101 commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

Really?! Now we're going to post angry disgruntled twitters by angry employees? This is not news or informative, lots of people hate their boss/company they work (or worked) for. This dude should just get over it! I am sure if we all got together we could come up with something to complain about at work. In his case, he has soooooo much money from his awful, awful job, that never did a thing for him ('cept feed his family and give him a nice sized savings to boot!) that he could quit and start his own company.... You know what I say in that situation? Thank you EA for taking care of me! 'Nuff Said.

Platypus101 commented on New and Sealed Xenoblade Chronicles Copies Ava...:

@grimbldoo seriously broke at the time (unemployed for nearly 5 years) so I panicked and tried to make some money off the IDEA they were collectible... Like you said, collectibles are for collecting. The only value they truly have, is the one the collector gives it :) (FYI: many of my collectibles are stuff I had collected through my school years - 80's thru 90's, they're nice, just not worth much in the open market)

@BlackStar9000 really? Collectors? Once we're old, these things will have very little value (as they were so poular that quite a few copies do exist) this is not some rare gem... It is a game that was passed over by many, not all. I have tons of "collectible" crap... I tried selling some of it once, dissappointing to say the least. Thanks ebay for killing collectibles :(
