Re: What happen to Fire Emblem crossover title for Wii U?

theblackdragon

wasn't it a cross with SMT or something? the Atlus instability may have put things on hold until Sega took control, so maybe we'll start seeing some more about it once things settle down and get into their new groove :3

Re: Nintendo banned my Mii and blocked my Phone Number

theblackdragon

all right, all right — setting his current NNID aside, without Nintendo's customer service line to help them out they're sorta SOL, so let's see if we can't get him going again. As for the bottom line in this topic:

(a) is it possible for the OP to change their Nintendo Network username and regain unhindered access to Miiverse and whatnot?
(b) If (a) is not possible, is it possible for the OP to create a new, inoffensive NNID on the same Wii U and enjoy unhindered access to Miiverse and whatnot via the new username?
(c) if (b) is possible, will the OP still be able to redownload their copy of WWHD and/or play the original download without issue?
(d) is the game purchase tied to the NNID itself or the console? Will the OP still need to keep the 'bad' username around if they want to keep their copy of WWHD since it's already been purchased via that NNID?

We need definitive answers to actually help this person, so let's not joke around, please, guys. Thanks in advance! :3

As others have stated, they're already working on a proper Zelda U game. In the meantime, if WWHD doesn't interest you, no one's forcing you to buy it. :3

Re: why was the dash button taken away from yoshis island and super mario 64?

theblackdragon

since SM64's already been answered, in terms of SMW2, remember that the rest of the buttons were in use at any given time as you moved around — Y had yoshi eat things, B jumped, and A was for eggs. If you think about it, the controls were already pretty complicated at some points without adding in a separate 'dash' button to have to press, lol, and if you did have to have a separate 'dash' button it would've been pretty inconvenient to get to with Y and B already in use for other things :3

Re: The Chit-Chat Thread

theblackdragon

@GuSilverFlame: The request is as valid now as it was when I posted it, and same for when the mess went down and even back when the thread first started. Everyone in here who either participated or thinks it's okay to rag on each other like that needs to knock it the heck off and get back to chit-chatting civilly if not pleasantly, or I will be forced to end this thread.

It's one of those 'this is why we can't have nice things' situations, guys.

It's one thing to be a 'mindless sheep'. It's another to repeatedly violate our Community Rules and wind up banned.

Food for thought.

Re: Does a professional reviewer have a mandate to bring personal political biases into a review?

@garywood: I'd thought the shield and my comment on page 1 of this thread that I was indeed a moderator here would have been proof enough that I am one, but since it's apparently not, yes — I'm the Community Administrator, which basically makes me a glorified moderator. Philip_J_Reed is also a moderator here, idk if he's stepped in or not after i replied to him that one time in here, though, lol.

also, I have no idea whether you've 'admitted that [you're] probably wrong' or not. like i told skywake, I haven't been paying much attention to the latter pages of this thread (since I knew it was all tail-chasing anyway), but even now all I see is you arguing what at first glance looks like the same stuff against the same people, so if nothing's changed now, I'm not sure what that sort of admission even matters for in the long run. :3

Re: WayForward wants to make a My Little Pony game

anyone with half a brain would want to be behind a MLP game right now. it's so popular it can't help but be a money-maker, and weren't they the ones talking about how many plain-jane movie or TV-show tie-in games they had to do in order to fund one orignal title all their own? i bet they're chomping at the bit to take a crack at something as sure to sell as MLP:FiM, lol.

He's not wrong, nor has he personally insulted you. He's stated the truth, you do want a debate where everyone agrees with you. Unfortunately no one's in an obliging mood, though, so now we've got eight or so pages' worth of tail-chasing going on.

Re: Store returns/trade-ins without receipt

theblackdragon

I probably shouldn't be saying this, but I'm not so sure why you're giving banacheck the brushoff so quickly, because they've probably got the best idea out of the bunch. get a gift receipt for your games when you go through the line, then when WW comes out in physical form, take the gift receipt and exchange it (maybe at a different Target). As long as the game you're trading in is whole and unopened and valued at the same original price as WW, you should be good to go — and if you can't, just take it to a local GameStop and trade it in against WW. There's no way Target's going to let you get an eShop card instead of the third game, the reason they have these sales is so that they can move physical product. If they were trying to get rid of eShop cards, those would be on sale, not actual Wii U games.

Re: Does a professional reviewer have a mandate to bring personal political biases into a review?

@skywake: not to steal your thunder or anything, but they've accused both myself and someone else (i believe it was Jaz007, i can't remember exactly) of resorting to personal attacks as well over the course of this discussion, though that portion was part of the now-deleted original thread, so that's why you may have thought it was just you. :3 I haven't been paying a whole lot of attention to the latter pages of this new thread so i haven't seen where you may or may not have 'personally attacked' the OP, but i remember the only thing i could see with either of the posts from the other thread that had been accused of 'personal attacks' was the use of the word 'you' to directly describe something the OP had said or done in their posts, and they apparently didn't like what we were pointing out.

Well your faith in people's ability to reason their way to conclusions is one that I don't share- and is contradicted by almost everything we know in psychology (which is exactly what marketing and economics people tend to read a lot of). Nearly everything people decide is down to some external factor that they're not conscious of. You use words like bigoted and ridiculous as if they have some kind of absolute meaning that we can identify. Bigotry is a word like intolerance or terrorist, you just stick onto the thing you don't like in order to create an emotional response against it.
Bigotry in North Korea is insulting the dear leader. Bigotry in China is insulting the ruling party, the same with various islamic countries (all 3 examples have banned various/all parts of gaming by coincidence).
Unless you have some kind of reasoning as to why society will just naturally tend to develop in some beneficial direction (other than the fact that it has done in the last 60 years)- I suggest a lot more skepticism!

none of what you're saying has anything to do with what I just said.

What you've been saying is that people [gaming companies] should be free to express themselves however they please. No one has argued against that from what I've seen. What I'm saying is that they're free to do so and no one is stopping them, but conversely the reviewer and the consumer may choose to or not to recommend or to buy their product if they do include things that they do or do not personally enjoy interacting with under the label of 'entertainment', and for good or ill, they should not be forced to remain silent just because they may be the only person standing up to say something negatively influenced their perception of the product or game at hand.

You can't have one set of freedoms without the other. Either the gaming company and the reviewer are both free to express themselves, or neither are free to do so.

Re: Does a professional reviewer have a mandate to bring personal political biases into a review?

@banacheck: 'society' has changed since the days of racial bigotry being a-ok in the media. 'society' is still changing now, which is why we're having this discussion in the first place. A reviewer bringing up the idea that GTA:V is inherently sexist and/or misogynistic isn't something that should be silenced — we shouldn't demand it of them or say that they should be obligated to report on such things if they didn't bother them, but should they be barred from having mentioned it within the context of the review if it did impact the game that much for them? Absolutely not. A reviewer feeling comfortable enough in their own skin and their place in society to say that these sort of things bothered them enough to mention should not be as surprising to anyone as it apparently was in this case.
