rp17 commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

@IceClimbers I wasn't talking about when they were revealed. The plan was to make a 3DS version before Uprising, originally, and thus it would've been Smash Bros. 4... but the Wii U would've gotten Smash Bros. 5 at a later date. So technically it wasn't planned for the 3DS only, but the 3DS was planned way before the Wii U one. Obviously now they have sorta merged and became two versions of the same game. (Although Nintendo may still consider them Smash 4 and Smash 5, according to a recent rumor that they have already started planning for Smash 6.)

rp17 commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

@R_Champ "Ice Climbers get cut for Dark Pit, Dr. Mario, and Falco..." Falco?... Don't you mean Lucina. And I doubt the clones have anything to do with the Ice Climbers being cut. I agree with everything else you said though. Although Smash 4 was originally planned to be for the 3DS only (which would have been MUCH worst.)

I don't get why Sakurai was so determined to have the same roster on both. I don't care about the 3DS version. I don't care if it's good or bad, some people will like it. But now it adversely affects my Wii U version...

@Grumblevolcano Yeah Japanese get the New 3DS will have an advantage over everyone else for who knows how long.

Variety would be great. I guess I personally can't get enough of Smash... Wii U that is. I couldn't care less about the 3DS version, which I feel will take up a majority of the stream. :( And please, for the love of all that is holy, please no more Smash Run!!!

@DarkKirby Only casuals would call the C-Stick cheating. The other things aren't that bad. They obviously want to show off the game more than play it. And they were just having fun.

The tournament was the worst though. I realize they want to show of items and stage hazards, so that is fine i guess. And the 4 way battle, while not really fair, was due to time constraints. But the Sudden death, it just ruined all hype and strategy of the final match.

rp17 commented on Review: The Fall (Wii U eShop):

I have been waiting forever for this, having barely missed the kickstarter. But it seems a little too expensive, especially if you consider it has three parts. So I'll wait. Maybe there will be a bundle or sale or something when the others come out...

rp17 commented on NicoNico Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Br...:

@Kaze_Memaryu Too late for the warning lol. Mister Peepers appears to be a sitcom from the 50's... :/

But with all the results, I know that probably is his name. Since there is no other original source, I think Duck Hunt Dog would make more sense than some obscure name on an old edited article.

And to be fair, he is usually just called Olimar. That's what it showed at the E3 demo... I think. But I know it is definitely Pikmin & Olimar in Japan. And it still shows the Pikmin first on all official websites, no matter the language...

@JellySplat That was about the first they confirmed when they announced the game. It practically went: "We would like to announce Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS... AAAND there is definitely no tripping this time!"

@Kaze_Memaryu Do you wanna check again? It's Pikmin & Olimar (Pikmin & Alph for his alts). http://www.smashbros.com/us/characters/pikmin.html

Can you give me a link that says his name is Mr. Peepers? I have never seen an official confirmation. And everyone that claims that's his name always links back to this article, which never mentions that name. http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/feature/29565/making-of-a-myth-the-grueling-development-of-the-original-kid-icarus

rp17 commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

We really didn't need a 4th Mario and Peach. And the non-Mario characters don't make much sense, but their still cool. But count me excited for the new karts and tracks!

Now Nintendo please a battle mode tracks! You made the best battle mode in years. You fixed all the problems and went back to the original formula. It had the potential to be as good, or maybe even better, than the SNES and N64 versions. Then you decided for the first time ever to not make any battle tracks. And that instantly dropped it to being the worst.

I still like MK8's battle mode. Probably just because I see the potential...

rp17 commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

This site seems to not like the new Samus skin, so I chose that one just to spite them.

But seriously, I love how so many characters are getting alt costumes.

(Also I didn't have much of a choice as I don't care about the 3DS version or boring assist trophies.)

rp17 commented on Mario Kart 8's Hackers Open Up Over Their Plan...:

I hate the word hackers. It has too much negative connotations. There are modders and there are cheaters. Modders add content to a game and fix its shortcomings, whereas the cheaters ruin the experience for everyone else.

I have hacked Brawl and MKW. It started off as me wanting to fix tripping, but then it became more and more amazing as I started to add my own stages, courses, music, animations, and characters. It was awesome to be able to customize the games how I liked them. However I would never become a FTW hacker. Cheating to win a race is just pathetic.

I just get upset when people can't distinguish the difference between the different kinds of hackers and lump them all into something evil. These two are legends that took a great game (MKW) and found a way to make it even better.

rp17 commented on Hacker Claims to Demonstrate an Exploit to Mod...:

@unrandomsam I don't know how I would feel about this if it wasn't MrBean35000vr. But since it is, I am all for his mods and would love to see CTGP U eventually. I just don't want it to be released too early. I want to see what Nintendo can do in terms of DLC first.

rp17 commented on Hacker Claims to Demonstrate an Exploit to Mod...:

This comment section is very annoying. HACKERS =/= CHEATERS They are only going to use this hack to make custom tracks, music, characters, etc. And this is coming from MrBean35000vr. The same guy that added 200+ tracks to MKW, and is one of the reasons you can still play MKW online.

And for those thinking that others will use his work to find ways to cheat online, he doesn't release his mods in a way to allow that. To this day no one else knows how he hacked the menu to make room for 50+ more cups.

rp17 commented on Weirdness: Classic Game Characters Part of Art...:

@unrandomsam These stages are meant to measure an individual's progess. They don't apply well to entire countries. If you meant the average stage of an adult in America... maybe it would work... but these stages are hard to measure for an individual. To estimate a whole of the United States would require too much generalization and extrapolation.

Besides it would best be measured as a bell curve as they are always under and extra-developed, with a majority in the middle. But as far as your hypothesis, who said that the people actually changed? Maybe the "lesser developed" have just become more vocal and have more to the power than the others? Certainly this would make it seem as if the entire country has fallen, instead of it just having worse and worse representation.

rp17 commented on Weirdness: Classic Game Characters Part of Art...:

@ejamer Wow I spawned some kind of philosophical discussion... cool? I guess I sort of failed at what I was trying to communicate. My original response was to where @PlywoodStick quoted "What I'm doing is technically illegal, but I don't feel it's ethically or morally wrong." This implies he has an internal set of values that say it would be "unjust" to be punished for something that isn't ethically or morally wrong. He also wasn't being selfish as he is willing to pay the fine if he has to.

Or as PlywoodStick said, "That... may be a deeper message than he intended." I was trying to discuss more of the idea behind the quote then the artist himself... and was trying to answer this part of Plywood's post:

"We follow bad laws all the time in our societies, and yet we reject good yet unlawful things... such is the nature of civilization.
'Follow the law because it is the law, no matter what.' To that, I say...
Why bother following a bad law? Is that the true nature of humanity to do so?"
