yuwarite commented on Video: The Top Ten Worst Designed Pokémon Ever:

My worst are any Pokémon that are too human/furry-like, that look like they're made out of something metalic, or that either resemble, closely named after or bear something that resembles an artificial man-made object.

yuwarite commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

@ShadJV I'm glad you felt it was harsh, since you used the token of "laziness" to summarise the entirety of what I said. When I detailed the scenario of a person physically going store to store, only to find their chosen Amiibo is sold out in each one, it does not fall under the category of "laziness".

I think the real story here, is less about me thinking amiibos to unlock DLC is slow, clunky and anti-consumer, but more about how you hate the idea of instant gratification when it comes to getting your digital goods. When I said Nintendo nails its antiquated ideals in to its fans, I was damn right on the mark.

@Csaw Critique and op ed is fine, but when there's an abundance of the same critique, and when that critique borders on offending the gamers and the artists, it becomes less op ed and more like an agenda is trying to be pushed. For instance, Sarkeesian wants tropes against women to be pushed in to schools as a teaching tool, the simple critique here has crossed the line to an agenda that aims to teach children to condemn video games whose art don't conform to a feminists ideals. It's ridiculous, and if GamerGate needed to be established to help draw light on these issues, then it has succeeded.

Lost all interest in reading EG; got tired of reading political correct editoral, which blurred the line betwen op-ed and agenda-pushing. And tired of shame-pieces about developers and gamers who enjoy games whose art don't conform to their ideals.

That's about right, if you played the first pokemon in 98/99 and were about 11 or under, you'd be around 25 or under now - or the Millennial smartphone generation, that are abandoning gaming, as they are now. I'm proud that I'm old enough to have played NES during its actual Zeitgeist, while also playing your generations games.

@ShadJV The convenience of DLC is the ability to download content on demand and at your leisure. Having to go to a shop to hunt down an Amiibo, which may be sold out or unavailable everywhere you check, or to order it online and wait for it to be delivered, isn't convenient and is not analogous to DLC.

Can't believe I had to explain something so obvious, but that's the type of antiquated mentality Nintendo nails in to its fans, I guess.

I'd say Link and Mario because they're most likely to unlock things in the games I care more about. I think using an amiibo to unlock DLC is stupid though, and hopefully they let people, for instance, buy the Link HW unlockable weapon w/o the use of an amiibo.

yuwarite commented on Video: Nintendo Unleashes a Super Smash Bros. ...:

Would of loved something a bit more crazy.

E.g. Mega64 guys fighting in public, wearing Nintendo character costumes. Suddenly a voice from above says: "Settle it in Smash!", and coerces them to settle their dispute in a civilised game of Smash Bros.

Something dumb like that would have been funny and resonated better with the audience, I think.

yuwarite commented on I Had No Idea If I Was Fighting Demons, Dragon...:

@WinterWarm You realise people objectify people everywhere, and not just in our little gaming circle? Females scream for and objectify males on TV, reality TV, gossip sites, etc. Sites like DeviantArt, where you see a lot of artistic sexual objectification and further objectification in the comments. And then, of course, there's the pornography industry as a whole.

What I'm trying to say is, you can't say there's a stereotype for gamers objectifying anyone when there are so many facets of human society which do it as well.

And if anyone in the mainstream media has that perspective, then it's pure ignorance and incorrect, and you shouldn't believe it. I mean, how many times has mainstream media been wrong about gamers? Are you seriously on the side of the likes of FOX news?

Anyway, again as I said to the other guy, there were not many, if any at all, truly inappropriate comments that warranted moderation. So your outrage is unwarranted as those comments fell in line with NL TOS, and it's their site, they set the rules, they have discretion to moderate comments unfit for the site, not you.

yuwarite commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

While this article pertains to games and Nintendo, any idiot can effortlessly create one of these online petitions that it's not something spectacular to warrant an article on NL news about. This is something I would read and laugh about on a forum, not on NL news, but eh, whatever.

@Quorthon Also, there's so little you can ascertain from an off the cuff comment, such as "X person is hot", that you can't instantly label that person as a sexist or misogynist.

But yes, if a comment goes beyond the line it should be moderated. But for the most part, the comments on this page are harmless (and not moderation-worthy) so your earlier posts are unwarranted.

@Quorthon It's strange, you're all about equality, yet you treat women as if they're these inferior delicate things you must protect. There's a reason why hashtags, like NotYourShield, were created because females (and minorities) were so sick of people like you using them as a shield for your arguments and rhetoric.

@Quorthon @WinterWarm Do either of you have a problem when females objectify males in the comments section of NintendoLife or female-oriented websites, too? I know that I don't, and neither should you when males do it. It sounds like you have a double standard, and your opinions are agenda based rhetoric; next you'll be calling us all misogynists and other terrible things.

@97alexk It's alright, you know your generation does (insert pc word for suck), though. I've heard many kids your age agree with this sentiment and even say it on a daily basis, so don't feel inclined to argue it, just because I'm saying it to you in arguementative tone.

@MC808 By your logic, N64 is retro right now, technically, as is the 3DO and Saturn, etc.

That's not really my point, though. There's a state of mind about what's good-retro or what's endearing retro; things like 2D bitmaps of Mario, Space Invaders, Pac-man ghosts, etc, are endearing to people, more so than the crass 3D objects seen in N64 games. Many modern indie developers, when they say they're making a "Retro" game, typically fashion it in NES/SNES/Atari style, not N64 style 3D. Even Minecraft or 3D Dot Game Heroes are 3D but use minimal pixels in the textures as if replicate a bitmap for a NES/SNES game done in 3D.

I bet in 40 years from now, if you were to ask a child to draw something pertaining to a retro video game, they'd probably draw something iconic from the 2D era, and not something pertaining to N64.

@electrolite77 @VGScrapbook Hell yeah, NES (and older) is what I would define as Retro as well. I feel lucky to have gamed in the zeitgeist of the NES era and witness the medium evolve to where it is today, and you should do too.

And did neither of you read the article? I was just agreeing to the sentiment: "and its parent system in a state of being old but without necessarily being seen by the general public as 'retro'."
