"an intentionally empty vessel for the player to inhabit"

Source please. I'm sick of seeing this parroted in game articles. My research indicates that Link was never created as an empty vessel and I don't think Nintendo has ever called him that.



Usagi-san commented on USK Reiterates That IARC, A Quick and Global A...:

I'm confused. The eshop still isn't listed as a participating store front, is the IARC actually something developers can use to get ratings for their games right now or just a nice idea that only two store fronts are actually supporting?

"Perhaps in future Nintendo could sanction online Game Jams to actually encourage coders to improve their skills by playing around with its retro classics in Unity, for example, with the reward being a spot as an authorised developer for the eShop."

I'm not sure exactly how this would benefit Nintendo though.



Usagi-san commented on Tri-Strip Brings That Vintage Game Boy Feel To...:

Yeah. This thing needs the contrast dialed up a tonne. Some of it almost melts in together for me. and I can hardly make out some of the text on the logos. Unless it's supposed to look like somebody scrubbed off bits of it.

I'd still like to know where Blake Harris got this information. One guy comes up with a never before seen document and we're supposed to believe it couldn't possibly be faked? Does he mention the source of this information in his book?

@JSaario We've been through this already in the forums. How about you provide some evidence for the assertion that "Since Link's creation he was intended to be the persona of the player not the main character" because there are interviews that contradict this view. Please read the Iwata asks interview with Shigeru Miyamoto about the ocarina of time remake where you will find Miyamoto speaking about Link as a character.

1. Go to 0.26 in the video and take a snapshot of the tools on the table
2. open your favourite photo editing software and flip the image vertically
3. visit the blacksmith in Minish cap

they LITERALLY traced the same tools and flipped them! If you can't accuse these people of ripping artwork you can certainly accuse them of being damn lazy! They can't even make original artwork for the tools sitting on a table!



Usagi-san commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

@CanisWolfred So people should vote for another game because the one they actually like the best gets too much love? or because you don't like it?

I actually hold the opposite view, of the 3d games I don't feel that other entries have done things quite as well as Oot did.



Usagi-san commented on Eiji Aonuma Hints at The Legend of Zelda on Wi...:

Next Aonuma will announce a large roster of hylian knights (each with an amiibo) for players to hire as companions or play as with friends. Each Knight will specialise in one of the series' trademark items and the player will be able to switch between control of Link and the hired companion in solo play.



Usagi-san commented on Insanity's Blade Release Date Changed to "TBA":

@damainman69 It's a little disappointing to hear that you won't be using construct 2 to make the Wii U version anymore. Do you think it's still worth it for people interested in developing Wii U games to pursue using construct 2 or are the reasons that you've changed to unity significant enough that you don't think making games for Wii U is possible with the program?



Usagi-san commented on Talking Point: What We Want To See From Ninten...:

Capacitive screens are rubbish. I don't know how anybody could think they're superior to a resistive screen. I wish my phone had a resistive screen then I'd be able to use a stylus on it. I hope Nintendo never make their handhelds use a capacitive screen.



Usagi-san commented on Tyrone Rodriguez Continues to Lobby Nintendo t...:

Makes perfect sense to me. They want to avoid any kind of trouble releasing the game on the eshop may cause.

In answer to Tyrone Rodriguez's question I would gladly raise my hand. These grotesque and strange games aren't for me and even if it was on the eshop I would never buy it.

Meh. The whole first person perspective thing just doesn't do it for me.

Also, why in the world didn't they do something with the trees? They could easily have used two textured planes. It wouldn't have looked great but it would have been better than blocks.
