I wish it came to the 3DS, 60 FPS means little to me, and I wouldn't mind it rough around the edges, but I can get it on my PC. I do suppose there's Ironfall. Hopefully that turns out good. Shovel Knight'll keep me busy as well. That's for sure.

VincentV commented on Nintendo Has "Lost Its Way" But Should Never B...:

@marnelljm You have a good grasp on this. Better than fanoyish praise. The Wii U isn't bad, but slow dev time for games & a non-integrated network service are big flaws in Nintendo's strategy. Better to tell Nintendo how they can improve and what they need to continue doing right than saying everything is awesome.

VincentV commented on Wii U Lifetime Sales in Japan Overtake the Xbo...:

Good to hear, but I feel this was a attempt to garner fanboyism. Can you guys please be less biased. Let's face it, Nintendo is in a rut, what does it take for them to get out and have Gamecube-like success? I'd say unified network accounts on Wii U & 3DS (full implementation) & more games (3rd party support as well).

VincentV commented on Review: AeternoBlade (3DS eShop):

Shame. Demo was decent, but glitchy. And while graphics aren't everything, they seemed to indicate they weren't too interested in getting much out of the 3DS. The gameplay concepts were good, and the protagonist had good lines, but the game predictably was a bit botched. Maybe these guys can get things right next time.

VincentV commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

@hylianhalcyon Exactly. Nintendo needs to get it together, which they are now just starting to do. I'm sick of how fanboyish some sites can be, and this site is starting to take that direction. Wii U is a good niche system from what I've heard, but even Ubisoft can only afford to be so kind. Watchdogs probably won't be that last 3rd party game to grace Wii U, but it will certainly be the beginning of even less support. I wish NLife made an article about how Nintendo can make a comeback instead of sensationalist or we'll be okay articles. Niche stuff is nice and all, but can we get a better network experience on 3DS? Can Nintendo pay Rockstar Games to port GTA V with Yoshi, mushroom hallucinations, and a bunch of funny exclusive stuff? A few things like this could persuade people to buy a Wii U. 2014, X still isn't here, network accounts aren't finished, slow download speeds, no advertisement, etc. Better late than never, so hopefully Nintendo gets back on it. Iwata's a capable guy, after all.

VincentV commented on Iwata And Miyamoto Both Take Pay Cuts In Respo...:

@MoonKnight7 So true. This is what America should be like. Wii U is a flop. Next time, if they do better, of course they can raise their pay. Until the Wii U makes a comeback or something, this is what they should do. In America, the top screws the bottom in favor of having even more money they don't need or deserve. They get paid hundreds of times the wages of others for a position that isn't that much harder. Then they give bribes to politicians sometimes or pay to pressure them w/ lobbyists. America...even the government's overpaid.

VincentV commented on Capcom Claims Its New Panta Rhei Game Engine C...:

Hopefully Capcom can make a new game on the 3DS to showcase Panta Rhei's improvements. While it can't necessarily run any PS4 game using it (few will be able to run, I'm sure), I'm certain it will be able to use the 3DS more efficiently.

VincentV commented on Capcom Claims Its New Panta Rhei Game Engine C...:

@SCAR392 You do realize that while the Wii U is 8th gen, its processors, namely the CPU, may not be able to handle the kinds of games a PS4 can. If the game isn't pushing the PS4 to its limits, then the game can be ported to the Wii U easily. But if it does push the PS4 to its limits, even the best of game engines cannot help the Wii U run it. That's that. It's why 3DS has Resident Evil: Revelations but not GTA V or Skyrim.

VincentV commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

@GC-161 Well, I suppose you have a point. I've known Nintendo has taken efforts to make developing on Wii U easier, such as allowing devs to use Javascript, etc. & allowing more self-publishing. I can see why someone thinks a dev should have to get used to the hardware. I overreacted.

VincentV commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

@GC-161 It's not necessarily them so much, they're certainly not amazing programmers. But what about a smaller game studio trying to get something on Wii U? Well, they could need help. and it's not like an indie studio can afford to hire a translator. Without help, it can take a while to optimize for them: look at Two Tribes's recent troubles. The lesson to be learned is if Nintendo's friendlier, they'll get more devs or more ambitious games.

@Yorumi You must've stopped reading my post halfway through or forgot I said, "I'm not saying Nintendo needs to help them w/ everything; they need to offer some help." As for the bias in the comments section I referred to, I never said Nintendo sucked. I said this is a mistake. I love their games. You only prove the bias in the comments section by how much you misinterpreted what I said. So if I give one criticism to Nintendo I hate them? Wow, I get a lot of hate here just for speaking my mind. At least this isn't as bad as Sony fanboys.

VincentV commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

@GC-161 He had "very limited development time." If the publisher didn't want him to take the time to do experiment w/ optimizing, he had no choice but to ask Nintendo. Heck, look at Two Tribes. They couldn't even afford to do it. They took time optimizing on their own, and look at what happened to them. They barely scraped by. It wouldn't hurt to give a little advice. You're right, devs need to do work on their own. But they are also held by constraints, like time or budget; Nintendo does nothing about this. If they want more 3rd party games they need to put out big games of their own or help out the devs a little, because nothing will change. The bias on this site is ridiculous. Apparently, it's okay for devs in Japan to skip Xbox because they don't translate any help to devs, but if it happens to Nintendo, people here are outraged. I'm not saying Nintendo needs to help them w/ everything; they need to offer some help. Is that much to ask for?

VincentV commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

So many people in the comments are stupid. They were not informed by Nintendo on how to optimize for Wii U well. Not sure how much simpler it gets. Nintendo needs to their crap together w/ the Wii U & tell devs how to get the most out of it, perhaps there would be less crappy ports.

Oh my. Hopefully Capcom makes an abrupt surprise announcement of this coming to the US soon. I'd buy it.

VincentV commented on EA Germany Survey Fails To Acknowledge The Wii U:

No surprises here. Wii U sales are bad to begin w/, how does EA address that? Crappy ports. Yeah, because that helped the sales a lot now, didn't it? And they complain. They could've gotten some sales had there been better ports & Battlefield 4. The only good port from them is NFS: Most Wanted.

VincentV commented on Nintendo Titles Continue To Be Illegally Peddl...:

It's one thing to put Nintendo's old games up on the App Store or Google Play for free. When you make money off that however, that's when it's just sad. Really? Speaking of Google Play, I've seen a lot of these on Google Play. Google is just lazy w/ this, like how they never fix all the major bugs w/ Android Froyo. I thought Windows Vista was bad, then Android Froyo came & was like "You haven't seen anything!" Apparently there are fixes in the newer versions of Android. Well if Google wants me to buy a new phone w/ their OS to get a more functional phone, screw them. They can forget my money. That's like buying a defective car & Honda saying "Well this year's Civic fixes that."

VincentV commented on Wii Karaoke U Doesn't Censor Explicit Lyrics:

I'm annoyed by excessive censorship, so no censorship of the lyrics is nice. The lack of explicit song warnings however, is a poor decision (Nintendo needs to follow iTunes as an example). I don't know what song that was up there, but man, is that generic. Looks like mainstream rap to me. If you want quality rap (though it still tends to have swearing), listen to Lupe Fiasco, Fort Minor, Kanye West, Hopsin, etc. I think Kanye West is the one of the only rappers to have a profanity-free album, which is a rarity. Swearing when it isn't for the sake of swearing in music is okay on my opinion, but sometimes it seems that isn't always the case.

VincentV commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at the Golden Joystick...:

AC3: Liberation won handheld game of the year? Shin Megami Tensei IV & Fire Emblem: Awakening were better (I've heard Liberation was good, but there's no way from what I've heard that it's better). Yogscast is overrated & GTA V definitely would've won best humor if there was a category for that, but it's not quite the game of the year.

Halo 4 Online Multiplayer Match:
Announcer: "Reggie is having a killing spree."
Reggie: "Suck it Microsoft Marketing Team! I'm about kicking a**, making games, & taking names. How about you?"
Microsoft Marketing Employee: "Uhh...we allow you to play Nintendo games on our Surface tablet."
R: "How's Halo on the Surface?"
MME: "Wait? Halo is on the surface. It can't emulate that."
