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.

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.

Just make a portable Wii U, called the 'DS U', and let it be backward compatible with Wii U eShop retail games. I would love to play games like Splatoon and MK8 on the go. It should be able to hook up to a TV as well, so finally we can play a proper Pokémon game on a TV.

yuwarite commented on Weirdness: There's an Awesome Super Mario Bros...:

@OnionOverlord 1080p and 60 fps was the assumed standard for 'next gen', yet almost all major 3rd party titles fail to concurrently achieve both on PS4. When you contrast playing the same 3rd party games on PC but at 60 fps, it's objectively a lesser experience, thus a disappointment.

Living room PC's are on the horizon; early reviews of the Alienware Alpha are decent. Going forward, these PC's will only get better, so much so they'll make PS4/Bone seem redundant when it comes to playing 3rd party titles on.

@S-Miyahon My comments represent myself, not the Nintendo community, and I've bashed my fellow Nintendo fans for getting excited over Nintendo's antiquated practices in the past as well. Nintendo's first party titles (what I buy their systems for) look great on the Wii U and many even run at 60 fps (3DWorld, MK8, Smash, Splatoon), so I'm content with the Wii U's specs.

yuwarite commented on Video: Donkey Kong Country Returns...To Wii U:

Refused to buy it; they should have added GamePad support. We can't keep blindly supporting Nintendo's laziness like sheep. Also, shaking the Wii mote was the most annoying part about playing this otherwise great game.

Better give us the option of JP audio with subtitles so we too can listen to the premiere voice talent the developers intend us to hear. The British VA in XC was awful and resulted in several memes that highlighted how bad they were.

About Fragile Dreams... I loved the tone of that game, but man all the backtracking and fetch quests you do in it sucked, and the combat was really stiff. The ending was a real bummer; it explicitly explains too much and ruined the sense of mystery the game had going for it.

Of the ones not commonly mentioned, I'd nominate: Fortune Street, Elebits, the Trauma Center games, Final Fantasy Crystal Bearers, Fishing Resort, Endless Ocean 2 and Mystery Case Files The Malgrave Incident.

@Csaw "You think that people sending threats towards someone just because they disagree with them is okay."

Point to the line where I said that? You've resorted to blatantly lying and putting extreme words in my mouth, so you lose this debate. You haven't done enough research on both sides of the matter, so no use continuing this with someone so naive.

Nintendo DSU. Done.

Nintendo's next portable and home console, combined. Same power as Wii U, but in portable form AND it continues the lifespan of the Wii U. It would take the shape of a 3DS with the same controls of the GamePad. It would have a HDMI out for TV play.

YouTube renders dedicated websites like Gamespot redundant, and now those sites are trying to be more personality-driven to compete. Also, there's been so many journalists leaving these major websites and doing solo YouTube/ indie stuff. Smart, forward thinking move by Nintendo.

yuwarite commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

The Wii U is not the Wii. During the Wii era I couldn't wait for Nintendo to make a HD console; I couldn't wait to see what a next gen Zelda or Mario Kart would look like in HD. I was angry that they skimped on tech, sold out to the casual market and ignored the demands of the hardcore fans who wanted 'The Revolution' to be a beefier console.

With the Wii U, I feel Nintendo have delivered the powerful console I had been waiting for; The Wind waker HD, Zelda Wii U, MK8, Splatoon, Smash, Xenoblade X all look technically and artistically great, I'm also really fatigued with realistic graphics which suffer too much from the 'uncanny valley' at this point.

Haha, point is: I'm very content with the Wii U right now and am not anticipatively awaiting the next console, like I was during the Wii era.

If this is just another linear flight action game in the vein of SF64, I can't validate spending typical retail price on it in this day and age, not unless it has as much replayability as Bayonetta 2. It would have to at least have some online mode to increase longevity and keep me coming back. StarHawk is the basis of what would make for a great new Star-Fox game, but with the polish of a Nintendo game.

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.

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

@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.

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

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.

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.
