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.



yuwarite commented on Developers Outline Their Ideas for Nintendo's ...:

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.



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

@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.



yuwarite commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X Will Feature An "Outsta...:

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.



yuwarite commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

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.



yuwarite commented on Ninterview: Tom Bramwell On Nintendo and 15 Ye...:

@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.



yuwarite commented on Digital Foundry Ponders Next-Gen Hardware Opti...:

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.
