SilentHunter382 commented on Bravely Default Flutters Gracefully Past The O...:

Fantastic news. This shows SE that there is a market (and other publishers that there a market for old school JRPG) though I have given up on the new ff games and gone to other japenes games like the Shin Megami Tensei series (and the spin offs) and the "tales of" series.



SilentHunter382 commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

Nothing this week. Seeing the squeal of Pop'n twinbee reminds me I should pick put the original. I still have the original cartridge (somewhere) but never got around to picking up the squeal. Could never beat the final boss even in 2 player with my brother.



SilentHunter382 commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

Well that is awesome that Ubi sent them a fully build model for the game. Its true that it can take a while to make each trophy as I know what has to be done in creating character models.

The fact that Ubi did it themself shows they do care in a way.



SilentHunter382 commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (Europe):

@PAAppleyard Its still waiting to be localized. It sucks that I backed the project who can't play it and there are people on steam and gog are getting to play it who didn't back it.

I know my issue can be resolved by buying the pc version but I much rather play it on my 3ds.



SilentHunter382 commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

I thought that it was going to be alot worst but I am very happy that the kids who were over 11 knew what the gameboy was and I wouldn't expect the ones under that age too know what it was.

The one in the green shirt was very knowledgeable about the gameboy and knew the importance of it. The one on the orange shirt made me happy and has hope for this generation. The one in the checkered shirt is just down right spoiled and the fact that he said that the gameboy is stupid because you had to use buttons just makes me laugh. How will he be able to play every console and handheld game this generation.



SilentHunter382 commented on Review: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (...:

Well I didnt see this one coming. After seeing the 3/10 score for the wii u version I was expecting this one to be the same level. When I saw the sub title I was expecting a 5 or 6 but a 7 is a score I didn't see coming. I think I will keep my eye on this game since I do love TBS games.



SilentHunter382 commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

While its not there yet, at the very least it's a step in the right direction for nintendo.

For people who got games free on a system or a promotion this deal shouldn't apply (i.e Ambassador program). For the people that bought the same game on the 3ds and wii u should get a sort of refund for one game or some of the money back.



SilentHunter382 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

To me I am not a fan of sponsored DLC even when they are free. In the case of Mario Kart it doesn't make sense to have mercs in the game. The only time sponsored dlc makes sense are the real sport and racing genre.

When they are in fantasy game it sucks that fantasy element out of the game. Now this is just what I think and when I get MK8 will I download the dlc. Ya I will because its free but I don't think I will use the dlc.



SilentHunter382 commented on Two Separate Bayonetta 2 Retail Releases Confi...:

So really bayonetta 1 don't come free with Bayonetta 2. Damn now I am not sure if I should get bayonetta 2 on its own since I have the original on my xbox (unplayed yet) or get the two disc version.

ATM I am leaning more to just buying bayonetta 2 on its own just cause the two disc version will cost more. :/



SilentHunter382 commented on Eiji Aonuma Vows to Reduce Hand-Holding in Fut...:

That is one of the reason why I loved A link between world as there was no hand holding. You were thrown into the world and told find your own way. Still to this day I am split on which zelda game is my favorite (LTTP or LBW).

I am glad that Eiji see it now and I am now looking more forward for the next zelda game.



SilentHunter382 commented on Bayonetta Download Code Included With Retail a...:

Arg why did it have to be a download code. :<

I was hoping to play it day one but with my speed I would have to wait a few days. I do have the original on the 360 but have yet to play it (brother owns the game) and I was going to play the original on the Wii U just so I have gotten use to the controls on the pad.

Now I don't know if I should just wait for the game to become cheaper and just play the 360 version. If the original was the same disc as Bayo 2 or on a second disc I would have bought it day one.



SilentHunter382 commented on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy Case Begi...:

@Spanjard 5 entries (I think). 4 on the ds and 1 on the 3ds.

Anyway since I only played the original and always wanted to play the others I will be getting day one. I am very happy it is arriving outside of Japan. Would have liked a physical release but its better to get a digital release then no release at all.



SilentHunter382 commented on Nintendo Revenue Claims on Mario Kart 8 YouTub...:

While I don't agree with Nintendo taking revenue off youtubers that upload content for any of there games since it is free advertisement for there games.
I bet there were a few people who bought a Wii U and MK8 after seeing Luigi death stare.

While I would be fine with them talking a small bit of the revenue from youtube videos that were uploaded through the Mario Kart tv since they did use the service to edit the video and upload it to youtube from it.

If Nintendo takes a fair cut of the revenue from people and they released a game without any marketing, a youtube could upload a video about that game and could turn that game that sold 100K to 1 Million sales but if they take majority of the revenue (like 80% for Nintendo and 20% for uploader) then people won't bother uploading content.



SilentHunter382 commented on Digital Foundry Pins Down Mario Kart 8's Resol...:

@pukka-pie Oh you are so wrong. FPS can affect the game. Try playing a fighting game, If it doesn't have a consent FPS it can break the game.

People really need to remember that FPS is more important then Resolution. While I am disappointing that its not native 1080p I rather have a game at 720p and have a 60fps then a game at 1080p and have a 30fps.

If the game can run at 1080p @ 60fps then do it but if its going to have a lot of FPS drops running at that resolution then I rather them drop the resolution till they get a steady fps.
