Shworange commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

I just ran out of room on my 32gb version. All retail titles have been purchased on disk. My WiiU is full of only indie titles. I'd love to make this my first game utilizing a new hard drive, but I guess I'll be waiting.

Lol. Good luck with that, son.
I think you may want to look into antitrust laws a little more closely. Sony is free to make a brawler of some sort of they would like. Nintendo is not blocking them in any fashion. The only reason they haven't made one like smash brothers is their own lack of compelling and beloved characters and motivation.

I got the zelda theme last night, then I went to bed. When I woke, I realized that I dreamt that more themes were available. One of the ones in my dream was a Kagura Burst. The background was just panties and boobs floating by. Weird, right? It seemed so real though. Each folder was a boob. I really need more sleep.

That sounds like conspiracy talk to me. The ammount of people that feel forced to buy multiple hardware copies for each region can't possibly be that great. I will bet a steak dinner that this practice wouldn't possibly move their stock share a single point into the black.

We need one that combines both! Top of the NES on the outside, NES controller on the inside. Obviously there would have to be some changes due to button layout, but get the colors right and design inspired as such, and it would be awesome!

My 11 and six year olds were raised with a healthy dose of retro gaming. I think they are better gamers for it. I know it's probably unfair, but I'd really like to repeatedly slap some of those kids right in their smug faces.

Shworange commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

Personally, I'm glad there's no traditional conference. Nintendo execs are horrible public speakers. Look back at all old conferences. They know this. This way they can polish it and shine in the way they are comfortable with.

This was my first castlevania game. I still have the NES cartridge. It was my favorite of the three original.
@unrandomsam
You're spot on about the music! If anyone gets the chance, look up the Nintendo Voice Chat podcast about Castlevania. They play the music side by side. It's an incredibly stark contrast. If we got the Famicom music in the virtual console release, I would buy it in a heart beat. My NES works great though and it's hooked up to an appropriate CRT tv.

What a disheartening article. Nintendo while I love you, you have to wake the hell up! Are you actively trying to tank your company? That certainly is what it feels like sometimes. Yea, I know they have a huge war chest of billions of dollars. What good is it though when everyone turns their backs on you due to stupid problems of your own making! If Nintendo fails one day, it will be their fault due to their stubborn refusal to adapt and change with the times. You can't just ride the coat tails of the Nintendo name any longer. You act as though you are still a impenetrable force to be reckoned with. You aren't. Not when Microsoft, Sony, Apple, Google and Amazon cast larger shadows that you. To compete, you have to be the guys that freaking work harder! Show the world why you're still the best! Forget the past, because it is irrelevant in the world of Moore's Law. You can be proud of your heritage, but if you're going to insist that the world live in the 80s with you, then you're party will become a funeral dirge.

Steamworld Dig was an absolutely fabulous game. It was inventive and hooked me from its opening. I played straight through the game and will go back for 100% orbs. It incorporated some of the best things about Meteoid and added its own unique flavor, elements and design. Any success they garner from it is well deserved. I'm very much looking forward to the company's next endevour.

Shworange commented on Nintendo Involved In Patent Dispute Over Wii U...:

This patent troll crap has to be stopped at the government level! I did a quick search on the company Secure Axcess to see how legit they are. In recent years, they sued Dell Computers over the use of encryption technology to make servers secure. They the. Went ahead and sued JP Morgan Chase, First Citizen Bank, and Harris Bank over the use of login pictures (sometimes companies make you login and then pick an image that you selected upon account creation).
These guys are very active patent trolls. This type of litigation gets very expensive and time consuming. Nintendo may just settle, but that doesn't mean they stole anything. Also, the case is being filed in Texas. This is because the state has regulations that support patent trolls.

I got reprimanded for linking to a picture within Trine 2 that showed a glitch where a crate you need could disappear, forcing you to exit and renter. They said it should have been tagged with a spoiler warming. Bite me.
