Platypus101 commented on Humble Bundle Issues Official Statement About ...:
@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)!
@OptometristLime thank you for clearly stating what I was trying to say (I failed, I was offended, and in turn offended the offensive party)
@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.
Platypus101 commented on Feature: Explaining Humble Bundle and What it ...:
@Geonjaha read. That's the point.
@Geonjaha and that has been stated many a time in the three articles concerning this...
I understand the concerns with "race to the bottom" pricing, but why not mention that games may be overpriced for the current generation of gamers. Let's face it, 10$ off physical titles/15$ off digital would go a long way in moving product... Not saying that devs don't deserve their money, but if they are not going to see much money due to pricing policies, that's not our fault as gamers.
@ALinkttPresent you talk of charities saving lives... Yet you claim that you will only give your cash to the devs to create more games... Why did you not buy the titles when they were full price to support them? Also, the beginning of your post, is sexist/racist at best. what you said was "I'd rather underpay devs than give one dime to women or minorities". I'd rethink that statement, as no matter how you read it, you come off like a jerk.

@joey302 and the winner of today's most truthful post... @Joey302! Robotron... Good times, good times.
Wow... Just, wow! On my list.

@RCMADIAX good to see developing for the Wii U again! I thought all the ungrateful jerks had soured you away... I'm looking at "Don't Crash"!

@Onion thank you! For clearly stating what needed to be said... On the occasion that I want to play a cartridge game, I clean the contacts first (as I don't want to promote any further degradation of the contacts points - console or cartridge) my first PS1 finally lost the drive on the console, sure I was able to repair it,, but how much longer will said parts company be in business? I say, Play your games, now, isn't that why we bought 'em? BTW, I love all my old consoles, why I still have 'em!

@ultraraichu trust me, this game is all about grind... Just keep playing, you'll be great at it soon enough... A lot of people I know didn't really like this game at first, but when they kept at it, they got good!

Platypus101 commented on Gallery: Wii U Owners React to Screenshot Remo...:
Oh no! Let's all whine and cry about the lack of social media outlets we are limited to! Who cares!? Except those hoping to get little kids to read their vulgar Miiverse post. Go ahead and argue that, see how silly it sounds as you type it. "I only have Twitter, Facebook, Pintrest... Waaaaaaaaaagh!" Yup that's what you sound like. No questions about it. GOOD WORK NINTENDO, leave the trolls behind... Miiverse is a joke, the faster they remove that feature, the faster we can move on from "Social Media" (no, Miiverse is just a place for you to SEE something someone posted, no real interaction, just loads of "look at me") on our consoles.... Too much to say, gotta get back to playing games, and stop socializing.

@rjejr bam. Exactly that. Thanks. So many potential titles not tapped in favor of the commercially new titles...

It's a shame that only scalpers and only a lucky few will have acces to these new challenges I'd pay cash so I no longer have to hear the word Amiibo

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Shows Off More eShop Games, With Cros...:
@rjejr @Captain_Gonru I see... That does sound kinda sneaky. Essentially all they did was "cross-platform" the game and doubled the price for it. Sounds very Nintendo, doesn't it?

$%&@?! Now I have to buy these for my wife... Thanks Nintendo. Thanks.
Platypus101 commented on Buy Three Nintendo 64 and DS Virtual Console G...:
So is Tipping Stars just a bad game? I mean, people essentially want it super cheap or not at all... Any input on this?
Platypus101 commented on Talking Point: It's Too Early to Write Off the...:
So... We no longer judge consoles on entertainment value? Just solely on sales? Wow. I'm sure this is why the industry is failing miserably for the console side... smartphone games sell the most these days! So, we should just play those, also, they're free! Stupid discussion, were gaming, not running a company. Let's all go back to finding good games the old fashioned way, without sales figures.

I was all excited... Then I realized you needed skill to create your own great job dude! I wish I had that level of skill and creativity! (but I do hope they make a DIY Game & Watch!)

@Pastry great game! Damn... When was the last time you registered a title, 2007?
@Starzsixty9 child of light... Or for only 2$ The letter (second choice was for cheap points...)
@vitalemrecords eh... I registered games early in the week, never received a post play...

@NorthLightSuplx did you say we could watch WWE's Wrestlemania, tonight, for ONLY $9.99?! What are you all waiting for? oh yeah... Been looking forward to Takers return (I know he's old, but WM last year left a bad taste in my mouth)
Platypus101 commented on Community Interview: Give Us Your Affordable S...:
@accc seriously... This is the question you think is appropriate for asking? There are a million other things to ask, but you gotta troll?! Stop. Please. Be civil. This is why devs don't like to talk to their consumers, look at the type of question you're asking... Don't reply with some lame-ass "trying to prove you're right" comment, not interested, and neither is anyone else.
Platypus101 commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:
@dariusq rise in stock? After quite a few years of stagnation? Sounds like it's time to sell! LOL!
@rjejr in the states the rumors were that he'd be back on SyFy or something like that! That was a fun show,
@liveswired your mom. Since we were insulting people I wanted in! I just want to be one of the cool kids.... Also, Nintendo and Sony did team up, that's why we have the Sony Playstation...
Platypus101 commented on Iwata: We Are Challenging Ourselves To Redefin...:
@Caryslan @ToneDeath I have the same concerns as @ToneDeath... I hope this turns out as a positive for us all (consumers and creators, both) and that we don't end up with a useless (or worse, defunct) account system after a year or so. I see what @Caryslan is saying about them not giving up on console titles, but at the same time, I've seen kids drop great games in favor of just sitting on their butts to play repetitious mobile titles, simply because it required less effort So, there's that fear as well, that an average Mobile title will blow up like Candy Crush or Angry Birds. Eh, too much talking from me, your turn!
You know what would be nice? A dedicated Virtual Console. No new games, all online, buy what you want, rent to try... Kinda like an Apple TV/Roku, but with GOOD games. Lets see what these "Moble" Nintendo games look like.
Platypus101 commented on Ubisoft's Unreleased and Finished Wii U Game H...:
@JLPick wow... All I said was "your anger may be misplaced" and you freaked out... I read what you wrote. Did you read what YOU wrote? Have you ever been to my home? Have you ever seen my collection of video games going back to my TurboGrafx-16? I collect games... Fun games, don't care which system (please stop with the Hipster crap name calling, I'm just not cool enough to know these terms, don't care to. I would like to continue polite discussion, this is my second time asking you to not call names). A party game that essentially belongs on an app or better yet looks like a Wii port to Wii U is not something to support, for either company.
Platypus101 commented on Video: New LEGO Jurassic World Trailer Builds ...:
Man did I love thise films (part 2, not as much)! Most definitely a buy for me! Dinosaurs, LEGO, Comedy and Dinosaurs?! What else could one ask for? (Plus it was rumored here that we will get to play as the dinosaurs as well!) so, yeah.
@JLPick So I disagree with Your point of view so you call me a fanboy?! Wow... Did you have a point or were you just up for insults this morning? I can insult you back if you like... But I thought we were having INTELLIGENT discussion, not "My way or screw you fanboy!" (Whatever the f$?&! That word means) Which is what you're saying. When you have something to say without insults, I'll listen...

Platypus101 commented on Wil Wheaton in Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. – What'...:
Wow... this does seem ridiculous. I have to agree with Alex on this... Also, are people still hating on him for Next Generation, as I thought the majority of current gamers would not even be aware of that, my next thought is: are they upset because he's famous again? I'm confused.
Platypus101 commented on Talking Point: New Nintendo 3DS, Operation Fac...:
@k8sMum I have a feeling this thread is falling apart... I had no idea how polarized the community was. At this point, I am hoping Nintendo releases SOME form of standard 3DS to round out the collection. I was unaware of the divide amongst our own (3DS users), next time I'm on the bus and I see another DS user, I'm gonna ask "why that model?" perhaps a better way of talking about console preference? Gots to be better than "yours sucks, mines better!"which seems to be what's happening at this point
@BinaryFragger I understand, all I am saying is to give it time. Microsoft had time to change their mind before the release of the console (a few months from what I remember), we found out about this a month before they released it and boom! Nobody is waiting... We all know Nintendo loves to release multiple iterations of the same unit year after year. All I'm saying is for some patience, and in the mean time either buy yourself a new 3DS or simply wait for the model of your choice.
@k8sMum also, just because I'm not interested in one, does not mean I don't know the differences. That was an attack on my knowledge... Since quite few people I know have one and have showed it off to me, I've seen the differences with my own eyes. I may not be as picky as some (apparently 55FPS looks different than 60FPS, can't tell personally) so that just maybe it. The 3D is improved over my current 3DS, and it boots up quicker... Also, the faceplates are very cool (my co-worker imported his)
@Platypus101 you're right, that post was an accidental copy and paste... My purchasing anything had nothing to do with you. This is the first I have mentioned faceplates... Eh? :/ are you mad at me? I'm sorry we got off on the wrong foot. My sincerest apologies as I had no intention of upsetting you to such a degree. That was never my intention.
@k8sMum same difference. Regardless of how you put it, this argument is simply silly. Faceplates? Really? That's what makes a difference in your gaming? Smaller frame, that too is going to make a huge difference... My assumption for the Devils advocates is "yes, it makes all the difference in the world!" Let's call this for what it is, entitlement. Sorry, Not angry at you... This whole argument seems silly. We know Nintendo has plans for the NA 3DS market, why is everyone freaking out? I feel that by telling people that they were not going to release it in NA, Nintendo created their own hype. Why do expect to see a whole lot of "limited edition" pre-orders of standard "new" 3DS models soon? Since the whole Amiibo craze, I can see that becoming a thing, especially with this level of outcry for said item.
@justinr ok... So because Europe has cars (namely transport trucks) I'm in the market for, and you're happy with your choice of car, I should reasonably expect you to help me campaign to bring those models over from Europe? You're being unreasonable. You can feel as entitled to something as you want, it does not make you right. You're missing my point, you don't have it, so why mourn it? Also, seeing as the rest of the world already has it, isn't it reasonable to believe that they may just be holding off on the standard size model? You may be jumping the gun here, it's not an actual "new" console.... More of a DSLite, not required, but would be nice to have.
