Female, 25, United States

I've been playing Nintendo since the NES and I'm basically a Nintendo loyalist. My favorite game series is the Legend of Zelda games. I'm studying Graphic Design and I also draw and write. Gaming is my way of life and I hope to make my own game one day.

@khaosklub the boat in Link's Awakening has nothing to do with anything because you physically don't drive and the rafts are brief. Don't grasp at straws.

Also, this isn't about Megaman, this is about Metroid. The fact is that they gave a spin-off. It is a spin-off. It can be a fun spin-off and there are probably metroid fans that will like it. I don't underestimate the fanbase, people are complaining because they game isn't what they wanted. Nothing more. They have no idea what it is like, how it plays, and isn't even going to try it. What's there to have faith in?

@khaosklub you keep repeating things that are irrelevant. Spin-off =/=main series game. Already said and done. Move on.

People did not judge windwaker on graphics alone. Back then, the internet wasn't a big thing but my friends and I were mostly like "what with the boat?" doesn't feel very zelda. We didn't like the windwaker itself, and of course the graphics were an issue too bc it was kinda like "why?" right after OoT and MM.

You are assuming people would buy it when even you wouldn't try Federation Force. You keep putting faith in the fanbase that I don't think they deserve.

@khaosklub I didn't say it was going to be like Metroid Prime, so stop saying that already. The point I was making was that you can't assume it will be bad because it is a spin-off. Do not akin the boat to the horse. The horse moved fast and actually got to places unlike traversing the gosh darn sea for 50 years. The thing was, you know this NOW but THEN people didn't know what this game was going to be like and were angry for various reasons, although most of those people are now diehard WW fans.

No one would have been that upset because it wasn't a Nintendo game, it wasn't developed by Nintendo, and is meant to NOT play like a Zelda game.

You might be okay with this, but like I said, no matter what Nintendo would have done, if it wasn't the AAA blockbuster, you all would still be complaining.

@khaosklub But you don't know if this Metroid game is going to be like that just like people didn't think Windwaker was going to be like traditional Zelda.

And Hyrule Warriors isn't even done by Nintendo. I also think Hyrule Warriors is really fun and I enjoy it, so I don't think I'd have been pissed. Not enough to hate on the game when I knew next to nothing about it.

Considering on how they don't even want to give Federation Force a try, I don't think they'd buy some cheaply made 2D Metroid game either.

@khaosklub that's quite foolish reasoning. It's easy to say anything. You aren't a game developer. You aren't designing anything, you're just saying random things that you think would be great but would they be? Who knows.

I didn't say that those Metroid games weren't a spin-off. It is clearly a different game. I don't think Nintendo had any intentions of telling you otherwise. If you find it a slap to the face, that's you. I thought the same thing about Windwaker. I actually still don't like it, but it's not that bad. However, the game is well loved. This new Metroid game might be too.

People get the Wii U because they love Nintendo games/exclusive titles. That's really it. It's the diehard Nintendo fans that are probably the only reason the company is still afloat. They aren't getting new customers like that. Nintendo fans are stil concerned with graphics, but they don't have any alternative to play smash. If SSB came out for PS4, I doubt people would have bought a Wii U to play it.

@khaosklub About F-Zero http://www.ign.com/articles/2015/06/23/burnout-dev-criterion-nearly-made-a-wii-u-f-zero-game

Federation Force is a different kind of Metroid game and it has nothing to do with anything. I think the expectations of fans can be ridiculous, and Nintendo was trying something new. It might not always be a good thing, but at least they try instead of giving the same old game all the time. The graphics are a stylized choice and it's a handheld game, it is not? I don't expect FULL HD from my 3DS although it is nice.

I still think your logic is flawed when it comes to graphics. It's one of the main reasons people don't even buy the Wii U over Playstation, or Xbox.

@mordo887 What does this have to do with me? Was it because I was a little upset at E3? In fact, I've been here defending Nintendo and it's E3 titles announced in this place so yeah, I have no real issues with Nintendo. It is upsetting not seeing the big games coming out this year, but no matter what I'm still gonna buy the games. Like the two Zelda games are a must have for me. Star Fox as well, and I might even get animal crossing, and I never cared about Metroid so those games are of no consequence to me.

Forgot about Fire Emblem Fates <33333333333 and the SMTxFe looks fun too. Also tbh, the only game I care about from that list is probably star fox, with slight interest in Fatal Frame. But that's just me and I'm not bashing Nintendo for it, am I?

tsukipon commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Approach to Transfor...:

@khaosklub the fact that Nintendo contacted Criterion to make the game means they are trying to revive it. I heard it was some issues with who actually owns the IP, but I'm none too sure the real facts. The Virtual Console games are different though. You buy them because you've played them and/or played another game and wanted to play them all. You wouldn't expect an old game to have stellar graphics. The gaming industry today is all about graphics over anything else, which to me means mostly nothing. A beautiful game can play like crap whereas a 2D sprite game can be fun. When it comes to shovel knight, no one had expectations for it. It's not a franchise. Metroid is a franchise so I don't think the same type of game would be well received when games like Mario Land 3D World, heck even SSB have HD graphics and are great to look at, in the least.

Controls are always an issue, like how people just hate the wiimote and motion controls but yeah, idk what about the graphics. Looks fine to me, but you see if they are complaining about star fox, imagine metroid

Hey guys, we should totally drop the debate and subject and just talk about good things like how maybe Nintendo will in fact release an F-Zero title in the future, and that maybe Nintendo will give us Octoling skins....or patch it and never talk about it.

@khaosklub when it comes to Metroid, I sort of see your point. The game hadn't been out for a long time and then this, but I don't think they're gonna forget about their original game. Not in this era. Losing Samus indefinitely might be a bad thing. It's bad enough there aren't many female protagonists, so Idk if Nintendo is gonna try that.

However, I don't think Zelda Triforce Heroes, Hyrule Warriors and Animal Crossing party games is gonna ruin the main franchises. A new Zelda is being made and Animal Crossing New Leaf isn't even that old yet. Granted it is not a console, but I don't think New Leaf is any less fun/successful because it is on handheld. It's the same thing on a smaller screen.

I also don't think that Nintendo fans would have been happy if they released a 2D indie platformer anymore than they are upset about this. It would have been something like "WE WANT A NEW METROID AND THEY GAVE US THIS?" I also think everyone's expectations are high, so anything less than AAA Metroid would be considered trash. You have a high outlook on the community, but I don't agree with it.

I actually don't see the issue with the new Star Fox. It looks great, feels very nostalgic but has innovative elements to keep it fresh.

@khaosklub tbh, the terrible wii U sales doesn't really give Nintendo an incentive to go all out and make the big budget blockbuster titles... Or they might be saving them for later or even the rumored NX. I mean they didn't even talk about Zelda Wii U at this E3 and there is still much we don't know about it. There is a rumored Metroid Prime in the works so who knows that they have in the future, but they have to release something to make money. I just did a SWOT analysis on Nintendo, and one of their main weaknesses was the limited number of titles it relies on. What they need is more third party developers and games so that they can spend more time making these blockbusters, because let's face it. If they released a Zelda game every year, for example, it's probably would not be as good.

@RennanNT I just think people are overreacting because it wasn't the "game they wanted". Then don't buy the game. I was upset at the lack of games at E3, but not about the spinoffs. They may seem like crap to you, but they might be fun. Assuming a game is trash when you haven't even played it is a bit silly to me. It could be fun. You may like it, but because it wasn't the METROID PRIME WII U or the next ANiMAL CROSSING NEW LEAF, it must be trash. :/

@NorthLightSuplx I feel you don't have the right to boycott. Nintendo markets to a diverse community. You can choose to not buy this game, but to boycott every single thing by them because one game has offended you is foolish in my opinion. By doing so, you are denying same-sex couples the right to be heard and represented and to even just basically exist. They don't deserve to hide in the shadows behind closed doors. You don't want your family playing this game? Fine. Don't. That's the end of it.

tsukipon commented on Nintendo Life Weekly: F-Zero Wii U, Octolings,...:

@crimsontadpoles I was told otherwise but looking at the article I found ""Fire Emblem Fates comes in two different versions, called the Conquest and Birthright editions," Nintendo said. "In the U.S., Conquest and Birthright will both be sold separately, as is already the case in Japan. For those who have purchased either the Conquest or Birthright edition, a third edition will be made available as downloadable content at a later stage. Details on how the three storylines will be made available in other regions will be announced at a later date." it seems that it will probably be paid. There's speculation that the price will be $16. I thought when it said you get the game, you get the DLC free, but it seems just owning the game unlocks the DLC for you. Sorry about that misconception.

tsukipon commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Approach to Transfor...:

i don't see why they are hating the spinoffs so much. It doesn't mean the rest of the games are going to be like this. Like when Mario did sports games, we still got Mario platformers. When LoZ did four swords, we still got TP, SS, and other games to that fashion. I think people are writing off the games way to quickly because it wasn't the one they exactly wanted. It's like the developers have no right to try other things with their games.

@NintendoFan64 "Hopefully I can display a Confederate Flag during my Fire Emblem gay wedding"

The confederate flag is everything about bigotry and white supremecy so waving it a a gay wedding is poor taste and generally offensive, which is most likely to offend a bunch of people. If this is what you are talking about anyway...

@JaxonH "Normally I would say play the game how you want to play it, it doesn't affect me, but in this case it kind of does. I don't want my relationships to advance into a homosexual S Rank. I don't want it. I want to level up my relationships as far as they'll go without having to worry about NOT fighting by someone's side out of fear of advancing an S rank." This sounds worried to me.

You can, like I said before, marry them to the opposite gender first, or NEVER DOING THE SUPPORT. It can be S rank, but unless you view it, it wouldn't go that far. I've done it in Awakening, trying to get the best marriages (by my standards) and I would farm Florina to get supports up until all I had to do was go through all the A-C ranks and then on the one I liked best, I would watch the S-rank which shuts out the other potential S-ranks that were available.

So yes, like I said, it wouldn't accidentally happen at all so like please stop.

@JaxonH you won't have to worry about it at all. Like people you can make them have heterosexual relationships and never have to worry about the gay relationship as if it is some type of curse that'll kill you. It's an option for those that want it.

I am actually so disgusted at all these people up in arms over the same-sex marriage like you sound so stupid. I can't believe it is 2015, and there are still conservative bigots in the world. Makes me sick. I for one am so happy Nintendo is showing that it cares about the diversity of its gaming fanbase. I think the only other game where I have seen this as an option was Dragon Age, so its nice to see again. After the issues regarding Tomodachi Life, which didn't bother me, but I understand, this shows Nintendo is aware of who plays their games. And what perfect timing than with what just happened in the U.S. Glad to see some real progression.

It's unfortunate that it has come to this and I'm not sure about how the mods are because never had a banned post before, but considering all the trolls and tasteless drawings, yes I have seen them, I'm glad they are really cracking down. It is a bit unfortunate if you are family with someone who gets you banned as well, but ppeople of all ages use miiverse and they deserve to be respected and experience a nice community.

@BlatantlyHeroic you can trade over wi-fi in the handheld versions, I'm not sure what you mean. I know the games weren't main series but look how long it took the games to come from 2D pixels to full 3D animation-from Gamefreak. Like I mentioned above, I think they are more accustomed to handheld games. A console version would.be nice, but I'm perfectly fine with handheld cuz I can play wherever I go.

@BLPs I disagree. Both pokemon stadiums where fun as heck. The colloseum games where third party spin offs but I will agree that the revolution game is trash. I'm perfectly fine with it on handheld. I don't think being on console would add to its unique charm. Granted, it wouldn't take anything away, but me thinks Gamefreak is a handheld developer company only, though I'm none too sure. Just speculation.

I've played this game for the PS4. It is a great and beautiful game. I highly recommend it to everyone, especially if you love games with beautiful sorry, and backstory. I hope they keep the videos that show the people who created it and their native pride.

Despite the lack of any big titles, I am very excited to see a new Star Fox. Fire Emblem and SMTxFE has much hype for me but we got no more new details than the last time they were announced. This was Nintendo's chance to show off these games but they kind of just showed fancy trailers.

I'm more disappointed all good games are coming out next year than anything else.

tsukipon commented on Bloodstained Is Officially Kickstarter's Most ...:

@Kirk 90% is still a ridiculously large amount that is completely unnecessary. Games reflect the style of the developers and if they want a gritty realistic game, so what? You don't have to like or buy it. But to call it trash for its looks is ridiculous. If the majority of the games were what you wanted, it would be boring, redundant and monotonous. Games are still pretty diverse in artisitc styles. Splatoon doesn't look like Call of Duty. Smash Bros doesn't look like street fighter. Games are still pretty different in terms of looks. Just because the more popular games look similar doesn't mean that all games are aspiring to follow their example.

@Kirk Wow. Someone needs to get off their high horse. If all games look like what YOU want, they'd be redundant and boring. Game creation is like an art and you think you.know what is right and wrong based on what? Graphics don't make a game. People have different views. Just because you think you know what is good and what you think is best, doesn't mean there are others that agree. Such is the way with art. People interpret things differently.

I personally didn't care for the castlevania franchise but I am interested enough in this game to want to buy it. I like it for what it is just like there are obviously plenty others seeing as this campaign is so successful.

Just wow this post just still feels like a joke.
