@OmegaPowerDX and that is exactly what's wrong with the Wii U. If somebody is deciding what console they want, and the enjoy playing COD or other third party titles then the Wii U is automatically off the ballot. That's why for most people the Wii U is a secondary console. Nintendo will have to fix this with their next machine if they hope to stay competitive with MS, Sony, and the PC. I'm not sure where you got this idea that if something is aimed at an older demographic then it shouldn't be on the Wii U, but it's just silly. That is one of the major reasons the Wii U failed. Limiting consumer choice is never the right choice.

I'm on the fence about this game. I do think it looks really cool but just don't know if it's for me. I don't think it will be a console seller, but I do think people who already own the system will pick it up. The choice is leave voice chat out is ridiculous though. Limiting the consumer is never an option. All the arguments I've seen against VC are nonsensical or shakey at best. If they don't want to hear people then they could just mute them. As for the argument that one team utilizing VC while the other doesn't is unfair, well that's just too bad isn't it? If one team can work together efficiently and yours can't then that's no body's problem but your own. That's the worst excuse I've heard for taking out VC. Like I said, limiting consumer choice is never the option, and as we can see in this thread, it has turned people off of the game.



thatguyEZ commented on Nintendo Shows Off More eShop Games, With Cros...:

Kinda sucks that they're just now doing this as I already have the games they've been offering cross-buy for on my PS4/Vita. But I guess it's good news for people who only own a Wii U, and it mean Ninty is finally starting to get their act together.



thatguyEZ commented on Crunchyroll Pre-Order Bundle for Etrian Myster...:

The shirt isn't actually an Etrian Odyssey shirt which is really disappointing. I'm thinking about doing this as it's the same price, but at the same time I could still just go pick it up day one and get everything except for the shirt and mystery box. :/



thatguyEZ commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

I'd be super down for Animal Crossing on Wii U. I've gotten back into New Leaf lately and am reminded why I love this series so much. But it does suck that Zelda is now pushed back, as that was one of the main reasons for me getting a Wii U in the first place. I'm fine with waiting for it though, as I'll take a delayed game over a broken one anyway. But Nintendo is going to have to pull something big to keep the Wii U relevant this holiday season.

@kensredemption lol so Nintendo delaying their biggest release of the year isn't grim. We may be fine with waiting, but that doesn't really matter as our patience doesn't sell systems unlike a new Zelda game which would do huge numbers this holiday. I assume you must not be very exposed to clickbait if this is what you perceive as being it.



thatguyEZ commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

It looks and sounds like this was a project that was close to the devs' heart, which is a huge plus. And Wind Waker is one of my favorite Zelda games so I'd certainly be down to give this a go. I considered getting it on my phone but I'd much rather play it with sticks and buttons so I'll hold off. It'd be really nice if they were able to improve the animations a bit for a console release, but seeing as they didn't for the PC version I highly doubt it.



thatguyEZ commented on Talking Point: The Limited Edition Battle With...:

Until Nintendo fixes the mess that amiibo has become I'm done with them. This whole frenzy over trying to get them has totally poisoned them for me. And after the whole Majora's Mask debacle I'm done with these kinds of things from Nintendo. As much as I would like to have the Fire Emblem characters, I'm not about to reward scalping and I have better things to do that check stores everyday for them. Until Nintendo learns the basic concept that the customers (or fans in this case) come first, I won't be purchasing anymore of them.



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

@quorthon You really must not be paying attention to what feminism is today, I mean did you have your eyes and ears shut during the whole debacle with the European Space Agency landing the Rosetta probe on a comet? Even feminists such as Christina Sommers will point out that modern day feminism is nothing but fear mongering and which hunts for the big bad patriarchy and rape culture (UVA scandal anyone?). Feminism is dead in the west, and the feminists know it. So they desperately try and find ways to stay relevant. You also have apparently have not been paying to what's going on in Sweden to be trying to state that feminism isn't political. Feminism is fundamentally broken because it focuses solutions for one gender to problems that affect humans. The fact that feminists have to twist facts (one in five college girls will be raped) and tell half truths to keep women fearful and feeling weak says everything you need to know about it. But I suppose if you want to keep telling yourself it's all about equality (name one right men in the west have that women don't) then that's your prerogative.

Enough off topic ranting though. While I think it's pretty arrogant for people to think they have the right to tell people in other parts of the world that their cultural norms (if you want to call it that) or tastes in certain things are wrong, I also understand that it's exactly that, their right. I'm not overly worried about it though, the 'mainstream' video games media is quickly becoming irrelevant, and everyone should know that sites like Kotaku shouldn't be taken seriously. YouTube and video streaming are quickly becoming king.

People have the right to make what they want, consume what they want, and voice whatever opinion they want, and that won't be changing anytime soon.



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

Can't even get the Amiibos I want as it is, this is just ridiculous. After my Toon Link comes in the mail I'm done trying to hunt these things down. If I come across one that I don't have and want, that's fine, I'll get it. But as for breaking my back trying to hunt these things down, I'm done. Nintendo can't even get the existing stock right, and now they're feeding scalpers with these gold and silver versions. After the debacle with trying to get a copy of the limited edition Majora's Mask and the MM New 3DS it's just too much. Nintendo needs to step it up if it wants me to even consider this stuff again.



thatguyEZ commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:

This program is beyond awful, I'm really hoping Nintendo fixes it with the beta and makes it more reasonable. This is a perfect example of Ninty being stuck in the conservative ways and it driving me up a wall. I mean they did an awful job at advertising the Wii U and now they want to punish people for giving them free advertising? Well that seems more than a little backwards if you ask me. Not even mentioning that this program punishes those who have been the most loyal and supportive of Nintendo. Those who have Nintendo only channels will probably want to start thinking of doing other games. It's just sad to see Nintendo continue to shoot themselves in the foot like this. The only way this could get any worse is if they start to flag review content. This just means Nintendo will have a minimal presence on YouTube, but I suppose they made their bed on this one.



thatguyEZ commented on Atlus Shows Off Terrific Launch Edition Extras...:

@zach777 That's what I'm saying! A NA release date can't come soon enough. :'(

@superstick Mystery Dungeon is different from the mainline Etrian games. Those are first person dungeon crawlers done in the style of games long past. While MD seems to be a rogue like kind of game, so pretty different from the usual formula. EO is one of my favorite series though and I couldn't recommend it to you more.



thatguyEZ commented on Hundreds of Limited Edition Majora's Mask New ...:

It's really disappointing as MM is my favorite Zelda game. But I'm not gonna pay ridiculous prices to a scalper. I'm just holding out hope that, like the Marth amiibos, Nintendo will put out another batch for actual fans. These scalpers are disgusting and tick me off beyond belief.

@Falchion lol I think you're putting too much faith in humanity. People don't order 10+ systems just because and then see how much they're selling for and then decide to put them on eBay. People buy these things with the intent of taking advantage of fans. But I'm sure you might be right about a handful of cases.



thatguyEZ commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (North America):

Another week of nothing. Nintendo really needs to step there game up. Their sales are horrible compared to other services. Not to mention the VC is pathetic considering Nintendos roster. They've really been getting on my nerves lately with the limited supply of MM3D new 3DS's and bundle and these lame sales. Oh well, guess I'll hope they'll be willing to take my money next week.



thatguyEZ commented on New Nintendo 3DS Pre-Orders Emerge at GameStop...:

The Majora's Mask one is sold out everywhere. I mean they're going for $900 on Amazon right now. It's beyond frustrating, Majora's Mask is my favorite Zelda game and if I can't get the bundle or new 3DS model (refuse to go to a scalper and pay 300% more) I'll be really upset. I'm really hoping Nintendo will up the supply since demand has been so high. But if they don't then I guess Ninty really does hate taking our money.



thatguyEZ commented on Nintendo Download: 8th January (North America):

Pretty weak week. Was hoping for another Fire Emblem game on the eshop. But seeing as there isn't one I might pick up MMBN2. It's quite sad that Ninty has such a fantastic library of games but refuses to capitalize on them through the VC. I'm still baffled there aren't any N64 games on the Wii U VC. Oh well, maybe one day...



thatguyEZ commented on Nintendo's Holiday Sales and Profit Set to be ...:

@jaxonH It's probably closer to the fact that people have different tastes. And a lot of the time people like to play games with their friends, so obviously if all their friends are buying a console, then the person will be more inclined to buy that console as well. The fact is, unless you are fan of Nintendo, the Wii U is an extremely hard sell. I love Nintendo and the Wii U has been a hard sell for me. But after watching Aunuma-san playing the new Zelda game there was no way I could put it off any longer.



thatguyEZ commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

If this is true then that really sucks, this was one of the main drives for me to pick up a Wii U this year. If it is cancelled then there goes one of the main bullet points in favor of getting the console. This really is unfortunate because I want to want a Wii U but Nintendo is making it such a hard sell that I just don't know. But this is far from official so I'll just assume it's not true until we get some official word on it. Fingers crossed!



thatguyEZ commented on Nintendo Creating a New Console for Emerging M...:

I feel like it will be a Wii U 'Lite' or something along those lines. Something to keep the hardware costs down so that it will be able to reach more Chinese citizens. I think this is where Ninty has an inherent advantage over the Xbone in China because I don't see MS dropping the Kinect or really doing anything to keep the cost down over there.
