Not that I honestly cared much for the feature, but why do this? It's clearly censorship and it's patronising to the western audience. Furthermore, the localisers are going on a power trip and taking too many liberties with the Japanese creators product.



yuwarite commented on Konami Already Planning Next Metal Gear Game, ...:

MGSV was a great game, regardless of the poor chapter 2 part. However, it has many flaws that will hold it back from Goty status. The main problems are that it's too grindy and wastes a lot of the players time waiting for cooldowns. It lacks the series' number of memorable boss fights. And after a while, it all starts to become very repetitive and you'll basically just use the same sort of weapons depending on Stealth or lethal situations, lessening the need for emergent gameplay. Also there's a distinct lack of memorable interiors, and there's no moment that ever tops the grandiose opening act in tbe Hospital. In regards to the story's twist, it felt like an afterthought and did little to bridge the gap that explains Big Boss and Outer Heaven; it feels like, once again, we have to wait for another game that explains that stuff.



yuwarite commented on Star Fox Zero Website Has Fans of amiibo and O...:

Online play would be a way to get more people to buy this.

But Nintendo is run by old men, stuck in the 90's, and a vocal hipster community who pretend to agree with every antiquated idea Nintendo does and never want the company to move forward.



yuwarite commented on More North American Women Own A Games Console ...:

The average female gamer age is 44 in America according to the ESA 2015 report. So are the women mothers who bought it for their kids?

We see these kind of polls a lot of the time and I don't think they're a real indicator of anything. Moreso it's an indicator that more women are eager to always contribute to these kind of polls than men.

@ProfessorMegaman It's the Internet and it's nerd culture, you're bound to have wacky opinions about this kind of minutiae, because it's the medium these people engage with in en masse, not the news or serious things in the world.

I think it's fine for people to have an opinion and even express their dislike for something they plan to buy. The main argument is people want a product that's close to the original artists source material, and it's perfectly okay for them to demand that as a customer (or potential one), and it's equally important for Nintendo to take note.

@Dr_Lugae I don't think "You spoony bard" would go over well now in the modern social media era. People would react in a similar way as they are now to this instance. But of course there was no social media/ mainstream Internet back then, and we were just happy to take what we could get

As for Super Paper Mario, Francis' character is largely the same in both versions. In the western version his lines are too over the top and lack the subtle humour of the Japanese version. In fact, that particular quote was changed from "Food fills the stomach. Figures fill the heart." Francis' lines are more pensive in the JP version, and in the western version it's like the localiser's are beating you over the head with the humour in a Family Guy joke style; it's like they feel they need to explicitly explain the joke to you, instead of you picking up on it yourself.

@Bananaman678 I agree, the use of that meme is not THAT big of a deal. But it still annoys people, because this is their only means of understanding whats happening in the game, and they feel like they're getting an experience that's a little removed from the original Japanese creators interpretation. Anime fans would criticise fansub groups for excess adlibbing in the same way.



yuwarite commented on Zelda Fans Vent Anger At Nintendo of America O...:

@Bananaman678 It's not about the meme; it's about localisers overstepping their boundary, and taking liberties with the original creators property in a way that wasn't originally intended. It annoys people because they want their product to be true to the original artists creation, not the talentless localiser's misinterpretation.



yuwarite commented on Yes, Fatal Frame's Lingerie Outfits Have Been ...:

Regardless of your feelings on it, at the end of the day it IS a form of censorship and Nintendo is once again patronising their audience. Nintendo allowed this content in the Japanese territory but thinks us Westerners should be shielded from it, and if that doesn't annoy you at all, then I don't know what to say.

And to Damien, the outfits are an option, dude. It's entirely up to the player (and their own common sense) which outfit they choose to use in the public setting they're in.

I know, I know, its pointless critquing games journalists at this point, even they know games journalism is not to be taken seriously.



yuwarite commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

I hope this universal OS thing is still true. So, one OS, like Android, that runs across all Nintendo systems and let's the console easily play the portable's games and vice versa. Though, I guess the portable would only be able to play the lower graphics spec games of the console. This would finally allow console owners to play the likes of a proper Pokémon game on a TV.



yuwarite commented on Site News: Nintendo Life's Alex Olney Revealed...:

GameXplain is better for Nintendo news and analysis, so I have always found NL's content to be redundant in comparison. I do still watch the content, though, and have seen Alex been factually wrong, in particular in his Ask Alex and Top 5 videos.



yuwarite commented on Talking Point: Considering the Future of Ninte...:

Satoru Shibata is close to being as good as Iwata at hosting Directs, and could do directs for all 3 regions. Also, Shibata singing 'call me maybe' was one of the most endearing things I've seen in a Direct to date.



yuwarite commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

In terms of ergonomics, some issues I have are:

1. Clicking the sticks in, while moving them, feels awkward and finicky.
2. The lack of bigger back grips to grip my latter 3 fingers around.
3. The fatness and excess plastic on the pad, and the overall weight.
4. The location of L and R buttons.
5. Transitioning between Right stick to A and B feels awkward.

And more...



yuwarite commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

@PartlyAwesome Nintendo only has so many studios under it; it makes better business sense to have all these studios developing for one system, then have them divided working on multiple systems - that way everyone gets the opportunity to play nintendo games. For instance, I don't own a 3DS but only own a WiiU, so there is no way for someone in my situation to play the 3DS Nintendo exclusives.
