yuwarite commented on Tablets Stole The Wii U's Thunder, Laments Shi...:

What ever the NX is, just make sure it's easy for developers to port their games to. So for instance, use an x86 based CPU and make the hardware as close to a PC as possible. No more of this modified GameCube processor stuff. If they have to give up backwards compatibility, then so be it.

I personally am split on the weaker console / portable hybrid theory, on one hand it doesn't solve the issue of the lack of current gen console 3rd party ports, but on the other means it will unify Nintendo towards making games for just one system, which means we could finally get things like a Pokemon console game.

If they do make it a portable hybrid, they have to remember that it needs to actually be portable and it needs to be slim; no one wants to lug around something the same size and heft of the WiiU GamePad.



yuwarite commented on Splatoon Producer Inks Out Reasons For Lack Of...:

I love that there is no voice chat, however... They should have given more text communication options, instead of just the 2. Also, I would like an option to point on the touch screen map and tell the team to go there, or that something of interest is there.



yuwarite commented on Feature: A Nintendo Fan's Guide to E3 2015:

I hope to see another game that excites me as much as Splatoon did last year, regardless of what console it's on.

As for my dream announcement, it would be GameCube VC and Skies of Arcadia is among the first titles released on it.



yuwarite commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

@joemama93 They could do some great things with the franchise if they tried. For instance, they could make a game that's basically like the PS3-exclusive, Star Hawk, but with that Nintendo polish. There just isn't much mainstream appeal about a linear dogfighter game in 2015.



yuwarite commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

I think this will be a terrible E3 year for Nintendo. No Zelda shown, and all the major games have either already come out, or come out right around the corner. The only big surprise will be Star-Fox, but I don't have high hopes for it.



yuwarite commented on Weirdness: Shigeru Miyamoto Takes on a Shinya...:

Terrible crowd. They cheered the hell out of the lame niconico/YT celebrities, while the creator of the niconico itself came out to silence and miyamoto got a quiet applause by the people who actualy knew who he was. Sad to see the hardworking people who actually make the products/services get such little fanfare.



yuwarite commented on Sony Hardware Takes Charge of Japanese Charts ...:

@Peach64 You might want to look at Japanese sales, before you make wild assumptions. Japan is still one of the largest markets for video games, and often matches or bests Europe's entire sales for a particular game. Also, the Souls games sell more in Japan than Europe alone.



yuwarite commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

Nintendo going mobile is a smart business move, and bound to print money for them.

The idea for an IOS/Android software platform that makes it easier to port their games across multiple hardware devices is also smart and logical. This is not 'NX', though; 'NX' is the codename of the next console hardware, at least that's what it sounds like.

Regarding NX, if it is a new home console, it had better be as or more powerful than PS4, and encourage developers and 3rd party publishers to develop and bring games to it, day 1 with the rival systems. It needs to be designed by westerners as well, similar to how PS4 was designed by Mark Cerny. It has to have PC-like architecture and be super easy to develop for and port to.



yuwarite commented on Game Freak’s Director Explains Why TEMBO THE...:

@CrazyMetroid What I'm talking about is that he, being the director and person who designed the poster which apparently influenced the decision, is one of the only westerners on the team, and he's even pushing a western agenda, that Wii U (or Nintendo, in general) is basically not worth putting 3rd party multiplat titles on.

I'm not wrong in saying he's a westerner influencing a Japanese studio either; it's obvious they're not making this game for a Japanese audience given the title and the fact it's coming to XBox One, a system that's non existent in Japan.



yuwarite commented on Game Freak’s Director Explains Why TEMBO THE...:

He basically just passively insulted everyone's intelligence with that Sesame School style response. The decision was made by a Gaijin no less; is this a trend of westerners pushing their agendas on to Japanese developers.



yuwarite commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

To be brutally honest, the problem is more to do with people not having the patience or time to read a lot of text, so they skip straight to the score. And I don't blame them, most video game reviews aren't exactly entertaining to read. Despite what people say, a numerical score does have context and each number can represent a one word evaluation. The problem is more that Metacritic exists and publishers use it to determine pay bonus'; these 2 things in particular need to to go away.

That said, I think the removal of scores is fine, but be prepared to get less hits on the article. The ideal solution would be to post a video, with the reviewer reading out their text with footage that highlights what is being said. Watch a Matthewmatosis video on Youtube and witness how to do the perfect scoreless video review.



yuwarite commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo ...:

Sounds like they basically want to make a Nintendo API, that's portable across multiple hardware devices. That could definitely make things easier for developers. I just hope they come up with a better, more synergistic, name this time for their brand; something akin to ipod and ipad that doesn't cause confusion.
