Rafie commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

@DESS-M-8 I understand that. Still, Nintendo's monetary print is all over B2 (Bayonetta 2). So they did fund it. Probably more than half. I thought the reason GTA 3 only came out on PS2, because Xbox was...well unproven (An assumption of mine, not that it was right one). Also I thought Nintendo didn't want terribly violent games on their console.



Rafie commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

@DESS-M-8 Nintendo did fund it. Otherwise, the game wouldn't have existed. Kamiya has stated this several times.

Also your claim everything 3rd party goes multiplat is flat out wrong! I won't even go into the many games that this falls under. Also Sony did not fund Red dude. Sony bought the old dev that worked on those games in the 90's. Big difference! GTA never had exclusive rights to Sony. The franchise wasn't exclusive. If a platform pays for the development of a game, you can be certain that it's going no where but on their console. IF they paid for the development!

Mark my words, Street Fighter V will appear no where else, but PS4 and PC. Street Fighter V would have to be under a different moniker for others to have it. Timed exclusive or not. You know...Street Fighter: The Return or something like that.



Rafie commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

@Hy8ogen Nope...not for Wii U. Exclusive to only PS4 & PC. If Sony helped fund this game, you can be sure there are stipulations in the contracts to prevent others from getting it. Although they (Capcom) claim there won't be other versions, just add still wouldn't change the fact that the platforms will only be PS4 and PC. Microsoft funded Dead Rising 3. You don't see that going anywhere. Titanfall either. Look at Bayonetta 2. Nintendo funded that. It's the same thing here.



Rafie commented on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem Wii U Cross...:

I know I'm about to get flamed for this, but the graphics was kind scratch WAS underwhelming compared to what the Wii U can do. I know, I know graphics isn't everything. I just didn't expect it to look like a Wii game. However I'll still be picking this up. They still have plenty of time to polish up the game. I don't want to criticize too heavy. My apologies if I offended anyone.



Rafie commented on Feature: Say Hello To The CPS Changer, Capcom'...:

I want this! I don't care if I have the emulators to all the games Capcom has in the past. I want this dangit! This is my first time hearing of an actual console from Capcom. I would have BEGGED my parents to get me this. Hahaha Thanks @Damo for the read man. Great news!



Rafie commented on Zen Pinball 2 Set to Hit a New High Score for ...:

I just wish we had some Nintendo themed packs. However, that's a dream now. Zen wants their tables available everywhere. Of course a Mario or Zelda themed table will be Wii U/3DS exclusive.

Btw, I'll have to ask Barbie what's going on with the 3DS this time around.



Rafie commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:

I can't stand folks like that. It's a dang on game! What's wrong with half dressed characters IN A GAME?! Most of us gamers play to escape the harsh realities of life and enjoy full immersion of video games and what they offer fictionally. Japan has always had taste in games that best suited what I'm looking for. That's why I continue to support games made by them.



Rafie commented on Rumour: Nintendo Plotting amiibo Super Mario C...:

Gosh WHY!! WHY MUST YOU DO THIS TO ME!!! I have a hard enough time trying to convince my wife that we mustn't pay the energy bill yet, but buy these amiibos. Now they come out with these! Good bye cell phone bills (which in turn...good bye cell phone service :p).



Rafie commented on Gallery: Art Academy Masters Produce Award-Win...:

How did that 2nd piece (by Marina ironically my wife's name) get a silver where there are plenty of pictures that, in a technical sense, look leaps and bounds over it? I appreciate the creativity in it. I just think some of the others were better. Nonetheless, everybody did their thing and the pics look great.

Funny thing is, I can draw in real life...but I can't draw on the game pad. :(



Rafie commented on Feature: Batman Vs. Superman In The Battle Of ...:

@Chubblings Absolutely! Tim Daly did a great job with his voice on the animated series and Justice League. To be honest, no one has a better Batman voice than Kevin Conroy! He IS the voice of Batman. Mark Hamill as Joke as well. Now he just does Skips voice for Regular Show. I would assume that it's more straining to do that voice than Jokers. At least it seems like it.

Anyway, I desperately want a GOOD Supes game. I'm tired of Superman being the butt end of jokes with his games and movies as of late. People can't see jack ish about that the last one. Even if you didn't like it, it was still well written and packed with action.



Rafie commented on Feature: Batman Vs. Superman In The Battle Of ...:

Ya'll need to stop hating on my boy Supes. Sure he's had some bad games, but so has Batman! If Rocksteady could do for Supes what they did for Bats, then Superman would be in there. Just have Paul Dini write the script for the game and we could possibly have us a stellar Superman game.



Rafie commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Emphasizes the Nintendo Diffe...:

LOL I notice in every interview he does when someone mentions Sony and Microsoft, Reggie does NOT say their name at all. He'll just say, "other platforms", "gaming outlets", or "the competition". Reggie said screw that! You ain't getting no shine off me! Hahahaha I really don't like the guy, but I liked this interview. He was to the point and focused on what Nintendo is doing and what they are going to bring to the table. Not what others are up to. Good interview.



Rafie commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

How did I miss this?! Obviously this a "Imma get you back for what you said" type of deal here. I'm going to give my honest opinion on what was said here.

As a handheld by itself, there's no question that the Vita is better. Just the hardware by itself. Overall experience is certainly going to the 3DS. The brainer, 3DS all day. Why would Sony even mention their worst selling product to Nintendo's best selling. The 3DS is annihilating the Vita by a country mile. Heck by a 2 states or 2 countries, depending on where you live. If Sony supported the Vita, then the things might be different. Still, since they don' was rather stupid of them to mention it in the first place!

As for the Wii. LOL I think we all know that the Wii is a former shell of itself. Damn shame that Sony completely skipped on mentioning the Wii U as if it doesn't exists. I won't go on about the Wii though. We knew that. Sony should have tried harder there instead of a immediate response. Mention the Wii U, not the Wii. That's like Nintendo mentioning PSP or something right now.



Rafie commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@rjejr I agree 100%. I was about to get on Reggie...again, but realize he has a point. HOWEVER, if you're going to boast about HD graphics and so on, then the Wii U is NOT the system to go for. Advertise what make the Wii U different than the XBox One and PS4. So far both of their holiday bundles trump the Wii U's. Which is a shame because I always expect Nintendo to come up during the holidays. Smash is going to do some earth shattering records for Wii U. More than likely it will be the best selling game on the Wii U. Can't wait.

I'm surprised at Reggie. If you're going to throw some shade at the competition, make sure your stuff is impeccable or at least as good as the competition's. With no 3rd party and and the old games bundled with the system now (except for MK8), there would be no reason for me to buy a Wii U at that moment. The Wii U is a great console and Nintendo's quality is the reason I bought one on launch day. I just want them to step it up!



Rafie commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

Another thing to add here is that people need to stop attacking others for their preferences. You're on a Nintendo fan site. Of course the majority of fans here prefer Nintendo consoles. What do you expect?! You don't go on a PlayStation fan site and expect everyone to prefer Nintendo, do ya?! I'm here because I love Nintendo, but I love the others as well. No alliance, allegiance, or preference. I prefer all of them if I had to choose. We can get our points across without attacking one another.



Rafie commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

I'm very happy to see some people on this site are objective here instead of just bashing the other systems. I read what Reggie said and he's right. At the same time, he also sounds kind of butt hurt. Don't spin what you're lacking to turn it into jabs at the competition being "the same". If you're fine where Nintendo is at, then be fine with it. Nintendo needs third party and that's that. People will continue to buy from the other 2 because Nintendo doesn't have it.

I personally was starting to lose faith in the Nintendo community because I felt like Nintendo fans feel like Ninty can't do no wrong. Now the the true Nintendo fans are speaking up that they aren't happy that 3rd party is becoming non-existent. Nintendo fans don't want to buy Xboxs and PlayStations to play their 3rd party. They want their Nintendo console to do that. I can't blame them. Nintendo really needs to pick it back up with this. It's a huge issue with Nintendo now. The biggest one honestly.



Rafie commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

I know how we can settle this.....let's ask Nintendo to remake both titles in glorious HD. :) That will settle EVERYTHING!! I have to admit that I would love to see Super Mario 3 HD on the scale of NSMBU. That would be awesome!



Rafie commented on Project CARS Delayed to March 2015 on PS4 and ...:

@Spoony_Tech I was thinking you were talking about competition on the other systems versus car sim software on the same system. If you followed all of that. Hehe

They won't release the Wii U version first. You know that. It's going to be a simultaneous release, or the Wii U version will come later. Unfortunately Nintendo isn't in a position to have a parity clause with 3rd party developers. They would just skip out on the Wii U altogether if Nintendo ever pulled what Microsoft is doing.



Rafie commented on Nintendo Celebrates Super Smash Bros. and Wii ...:

@Gamer83 I have all 3 systems and I can justify the purchases for each. Now let's be real here...and objective. Nintendo has more first party exclusives out (due to them being out a year longer). However, Sony technically has more games than Wii U for it's library. Whether quality is called into question is irrelevant. The system has games. So your purchase is justified. As far as Xbox is concerned, they have just as many triple A titles as Sony does, but not games. How does Microsoft deserve to stand next to Nintendo in your eyes, but Sony doesn't?!

As far as exclusive games go, I would say Nintendo is best...for now. Please don't go and say that they (Sony) don't have games to play. That's ignorant to say. All 3 have games to play. If you really want to the answer to your question, I'll give you my view.

As far as current consoles go, the Wii U is not as powerful as the other 2. I'm not saying that it's underpowered. It's just not AS powerful. Not all gamers like the gamepad either, not even Nintendo gamers. Not every gamer wants the Kinect, not even Xbox gamers. Which is why MS decided early within a year of it's release to take the Kinect out and sell it seperately. Without that, price parity among the 3 is right where it's suppose to be. Heck, you can even say that the Xbox should be 50 dollars cheaper without the Kinect seeing as the PS4 is more powerful. Let's take Nintendo out the picture for a second because I believe every gamer should own a Wii U. It's the only console you can play Nintendo games on and it's a pretty good console. Now back to the other 2. Now without the Kinect, the PS4 and Xbox One are pretty much the same with one being a bit more powerful. Let's take into account that multiplats for the most part will look and play better on the PS4. Who do you think will by a technically inferior console (hardware wise)? No one. They will go to the PS4. The exclusives is what will determine who will win 2 regions, U.S. and U.K. Everywhere else is PlayStation. So the more popular powerful system with more games will appeal more. The hype train is over. People that say the PS4 is selling on hype alone are foolish. Now this may look as if I'm downplaying the Xbox One, I'm not...or that isn't my attention. This is from a consumer standpoint. The Xbox One is an excellent console. I recommend it to anyone.

So now that the Xbox and PS discussion is out the way. Let's get to the Wii U. Now you have one console who has powerful first party exclusives, but lacks tremendous 3rd party games. Then you have another console whose 1st party games aren't as popular as Nintendo's, but still strong...however has tremendous 3rd party support. Both consoles have great indie support, but Sony edges Nintendo out there. So now we have a "preference" issue. At this point, you're either going to prefer what Sony has to offer, or what Nintendo has to offer. Either way, Nintendo needs to be in the equation for either Sony and/or Microsoft. Or you can have all 3 like me. That way you don't miss anything.

Now I wasn't singling you out. Just informing you that Sony place in this console race is deserved. I didn't even mention all the other fiasco's and what not. I got straight to the point because all that DRM and stuff is irrelevant.



Rafie commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

I'm not even going to cycle through the comments. Like seriously this is the first time I've ever heard of something like this. This is obviously a troll attempt to make Sony look bad. I'm sure all of Sony's fans KNOW DAMN WELL they will never get Smash on any other system than Nintendo. Point, blank, period!

The fact that someone went to these lengths shows desperation. You have a better chance of impregnating a man before a Nintendo game shows up on a Sony console. Please cease and desist with that nonsense.



Rafie commented on Video: Let's Play Mario Kart 8 With Lydia:

@JaxonH You sure about that friend. I just tried to recreate that blowing past the blue shell with a mushroom deal..twice. I failed miserably....twice! LOL I'm also having difficulty getting 3 gold stars on the lightning cup as well. I swear the computer cheats. As soon as I'm in the lead for at least 2 laps, I get hit with everything under the Sun. I get so mad that I would have to turn off the game and try to calm down.

@SquidGaming You did a fantastic job. You play just like I do. I wish I could add something constructive to enhance your game play. Unfortunately I can't. However, you've inspired me to play the game again and try getting all 3 gold stars on 150. The Lightning and Star cups are the only ones I don't have all 3 gold stars on.



Rafie commented on Want Bayonetta 2 On PS4 And Xbox One? You Migh...:

@readyletsgo The difference is you're talking about one of Sony's first party studio's versus a 3rd party developer's game. No way would Uncharted 4 come to any system, but Sony. Just like Mario wouldn't go anywhere, but Nintendo.

Still, this is rather tiresome. If you want the f'ing game, purchase a Wii U. Otherwise...STFU! Move on Sony and Xbox fanboys! Maybe they (Sony/Microsoft) should have stepped up and funded the game. Now you want to cry it's not coming to your console. Well tough tatas. This is a day one purchase for me on the WII U. I can't wait for it. Also the added fact that I can enjoy the game without having to worry about trophies and achievements is an added plus. :)



Rafie commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

@Wilford111 It's worth the purchase. If it bothers you, just ignore. Don't want to spoil you, but I think this is a safe spoiler if you've never played the first game. She does all of those lewd poses and such to taunt the angels/demons. Just FYI.



Rafie commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

The PS3 version was the worst compared to the 360 version! Much worse. I'm sure the Wii U's version will be the definitive one. I love this game very much. The music is also fantastic. That soundtrack is memorable.

@Frapp Well don't you go and you know what. (it rhymes with your name :P)



Rafie commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

Yup this is what everyone was afraid of. So no matter how you spin it (people defending this action), the 3DS technically held the Wii U version back. They probably shouldn't have said anything at all.

I also still find it hard to believe that a capable machine like the 3DS can't handle what was on GC back in 2001. Then again, I don't understand programming and what it takes. So I'll detract that statement. I'm a bit peeved at this. Not because they won't be on the game, but at the fact that there could be other content that didn't make it because the 3DS can't handle it.
