Zombie_Barioth commented on Bandai Namco Celebrates the 20th Anniversary f...:

A Tales of Symphonia/Dawn of the New World/Graces F collection popped up on Amazon Europe, so maybe they might port it to Wii U seeing as all three were on Nintendo consoles. More likely than not a compilation of some kind is probably gonna be announce seeing as its an anniversary celebration. Last time we got Symphonia Chronicles.

I can't think of much else besides a next-gen Tales of game on PS4, or something to do with tales of Zestiria.

@KTT
This isn't bad as far as Youtube videos go, but I would expect a bit more from an officially sponsored channel, and especially from Nintendo itself. i see what they were going for, but they should have quickened the pacing a bit to give it a bit more oomph.

I don't know why they don't make live-action ads like they used to in the 90's-early 2000's, but more modern. Some of them were actually pretty good, like the bus driver smashing a bus-load of Pokemon into a Gameboy, or the one with the two kids trading Pokemon.

How the heck did I manage to miss your post?

Anyway, yeah, I do, had it since launch. You don't have to sell me on the series either, if my username wasn't enough to give it away.;) Started with MH3 and played almost every game from the PSP onwards since then (I skipped MHF2 for 2G/Unite).

So yeah, I've been speaking from experience. I just didn't feel the need to play the seniority card. Don't need it, a strong argument should be able to stand on it's own merit, and its just blindly walking into a potential minefield imo.

The only thing crazy about it is its just another example of how ridiculous NOA tends to be compared to the other branches.

Well that, and being the only branch that apparently doesn't want the money at all. NA is the biggest market, so surely even the regular-size model would make more here than everywhere else. Its money left on the table, any business doing that is crazy.

@Superryanworld
True, its not necessarily about the extra bill though, just the fact that they're the only ones doing it. So its a case of they need it, yet Valve, Blizzard, Riot Games and countless other companies don't? I also forgot to point out we already pay for the game, which the online-pass fiasco actually proved pays for the online.

Honestly, its so ridiculous its laughable, especially when people defend it and start parroting the PR.

But yea, like I said its a good value if you actually use it, PSN is anyway I can't really say for XBL Gold. Netflix is almost double the cost per month, quadruple if you get more services, and can easily eat your bandwidth up if your a big movie/TV watcher. Heck, game rentals were what, $7 a week? God knows how much we spent on that growing up.XD

@Meaty-cheeky
I'm pretty sure most Americans understand what 'XL' means, if not they must have an awful time cloths shopping.;)

It doesn't take a genius to see '3DS' and '3DS XL' and figure out one must be 'extra large'. As @Rocky2418 pointed out they don't even sell the regular 3DS anymore, and eventually they'll discontinue the old XL model since they have the New 3DS's. The only confusion there will be is why 2/3 systems are called 'New'. I can't say much else without repeating what's already been said.

The only good explanations I can see for this is either stocking issues thanks to the port strike making them prioritize one over the other to meet demands, or retailers didn't want to stock both. With this news I doubt its the latter though.

@Einherjar
Your guess as as good as mine. I swear people must be bored, there's no real problems that need to be addressed so people feel the need to create some. That, or its a case of now that gaming is popular its now a 'new frontier' to conquer.

That was exactly my point by the way. The three of them are basically intertwined at this point, and you can't change either character without also changing the male/female hero duo against the the evil warlock story.

You might also argue Zelda is too closely linked (no pun intended) to the goddess Hylia. Her role and identity are arguably more important than Link's, and therefore so is her relation to him. Every goddess needs her hero.;)

@JaxonH
I'm not saying the game isn't better without the new features, of course not. What I'm saying is what you're calling inferior are literally the game's own default settings. Arguing over it doesn't work since if someone doesn't like or simply doesn't use them then their experience isn't actually inferior.

Its a lot less like your car analogy and more like, I don't know, coffee. Some like it black, others like it loaded with cream and sugar, but there's no "right" way to drink it even if some people might try to say otherwise.

@Superryanworld
Principal for one thing, some people just don't feel like they should have to pay to play online on top of their own internet service, which isn't exactly cheap. On top of that they also don't like Sony and Microsoft's excuse that they "need" to charge, meanwhile other companies don't and they're easily making at least half a billion a year on it. That's pure annual profit, so its just going in the bank, not back into their service..

There's also the cost as @JaxonH explained, and the argument that the games are "free". Its a heck of a deal if your not particularly picky, but its basically a rental service, or a plus for paying for online depending on how you look at it.

Zombie_Barioth commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

@Einherjar
My thoughts exactly. I honestly don't understand the fascination with gender-bending characters, and the logic that they use to argue for it is baffling.

People use the argument that Link is almost always a different person, 30 years later when he has literally always been male, always Hylian, and almost always blond. Never mind Zelda, Ganondorf, and him have always been apart of a triangle, and that can't be broken without also changing Zelda's character or her relation to Link.

The most baffling thing though is the assertion that this is the biggest and most important change Nintendo could make if they want to shake up the series's formula. Not only is it absurd by itself, it contradicts their argument that gender doesn't matter, and implies their ideas can't stand on their own.

I can't help but question what their actual motives are, since from what I've seen most of the "evidence" supporting any argument of this nature in gaming is cherry-picked, taken out of context, or misconstrued. Its only a problem if you can't simply enjoy a game's story and narrative for what it is.

The experience is the same one its always been though, so the absence of the second-screen doesn't actually make it clumsy or inferior. Otherwise, by that logic, anybody who doesn't actually use the features automatically have the worse experience too. See where I'm going with this?

Zombie_Barioth commented on New Nintendo 3DS Exploit Makes Japanese System...:

There are two reasons for it region-locking. The first being to limit the effects of piracy, since the idea is if your console can't play it you won't pirate it.

The second is actually to prevent people importing cheaper products, this is mainly for Japan and is actually a pretty common practice for Japanese companies. Its not just due to exchange rates either, a lot of it for price gouging, and trying to keep the money circulating within their own country.

That's how it was anyway, since only Nintendo are doing it still.

@TingLz
That's actually a big reason for movie and TV piracy, people pirate to get shows that aren't available in their region. I can't see why it'd be any different for games. People actually make foreign accounts just to download games, and even use VPNs or fake accounts to bypass IP blocks for online games.

If piracy is deemed cheaper and more convenient than the legal way then people will go that route. Yes, that includes hacking and using CFW to bypass regional restrictions.

Let me guess, what you mean to say is now that Monster Hunter has shortcuts and all that you feel like you can't live without it, not that it needs it? Is that at all accurate?

The only reason MH needs it now is they've added extra functions in 3U, 4, and 4U that require a touchscreen. Otherwise, the UI has barely changed since the original PS2 games, and the general pacing has been the same since MHF1. The main difference is the games are more fluid and polished, and the monsters behave more organically.

Zombie_Barioth commented on Nintendo Working On New 'Dedicated Game Platfo...:

@Timppis
5-6 years isn't really short for a home console, not for official support anyway. It only seems short because last gen lasted so long, and previous consoles lasted quite a while after its successor released before officially being discontinued. Its not like either the Wii U or 3DS will disappear as soon as the new device comes out. Its just as if not more likely to be a successor to the 3DS.

On the plus side though, it'll allow them to easily catch up to the Sony and Micrisoft power-wise if they keep up the 5-6 year cycle.

If its some sort of hybrid console I wonder how they'd handle it. It could just as easily just be a regular console and handheld that work together like the PS4 and Vita. Its likely just wishful thinking but it'd be funny if they bundled them together like people wanted Sony to.;)

@CharleSketch
What they probably mean is they'll pay the difference out if their own pocket if need be. They said they only need about £400,000, that's quite a bit for a few guys to pool together.

That's also just what they think they need, which if they funded themselves is all they'd probably have to put into the game. With more funding they could put more into it, like having Grant Kirkhope do the soundtrack. As happy as he'd probably be to work on a spiritual successor to B&K I'm pretty sure he would still want to get paid.

@Timppis
http://www.pokemon.com/us/legal/

The only thing Nintendo is specifically credited for is trademarks, the only thing they own are character names, logos, and the trademark for Pokemon. Game Freak isn't a subsidiary of Nintendo either, its a privately held company, of which they might have sold some shares to Nintendo.

As for the last point, I didn't say another company couldn't, only that Game Freak is the only truly successful creator of this particular sub-genre, so it's unlikely another company could handle it.

I never said Nintendo cared what they say either, only that Game Freak probably doesn't want to risk it. They're so heavily associated with one another that it wouldn't look good for them to be speaking negatively about Nintendo's consoles. All we'd see are headlines reading "Wii U is selling poorly says Pokemon Developer" and stuff like that.

@Timppis
Game freak owns part of Pokemon along with Nintendo, so no, they can't actually take the series away from them. As for Nintendo not "needing" them, they sorta do, beside Game Freak being partial owner of the IP.

Ever notice how not a single company has successfully replicated Pokemon? Several have tried, and all 3 are niche at best. Sure, they could find somebody else to make the games, but Pokemon is the 2nd most profitable game franchise in the world and one of Nintendo's biggest, they seriously don't want to screw that up.

As for this excuse, its sorta reasonable, aside from the "we forgot" line. My guess is they don't want to risk angering Nintendo by speaking negatively about the Wii U and stuff like that, lest they bite the hand that feeds them.

@locky-mavo
Game Freak have never made a console Pokemon game or spin-off, only the main-series games. They aren't a big company at all, the staff only consists of 73 people. Most of them are probably working on Gen 7, and maybe a sequel to ORAS or something.

Sorry, I though you meant it the other way around, as in the "that's what the retailers are doing" excuse. My point still stands though, this is quite normal in the second-hand market already. Heck, NL has already reported on a few.

Funny though how disagreeing with someone makes you a white knight.:P

No, all I'm saying is just because you don't like something, doesn't make it sleazy. There were no tricks, whoever bought it knew exactly what they were getting, and for how much. They paid $500 and actually got $500 worth of stuff.

@Chicagoway
One little problem with that, everything in the bundle is brand-new, so it isn't influencing the second-hand market at all. Not only that, but bundling isn't new there anyway, go on ebay or craigslist and you'll see plenty of console bundles.

This bundle isn't obscene either, $100 more than a console your getting a New 3DS XL, 4 games, 8 Amiibo which the 3DS can read, and a collectors guide, that's A LOT of stuff. A much better value than just a console and 2 games imo.

Yea, its a lot of money, but its not really sleazy. Sleazy would be bundling the 3DS, Majora's Mask, and the collector's edition book together and charging $500. There's no price-tag trickery going on here, they're just offering more than some people might want.

I'm about 30hrs in, gearing up to take on Shagaru Magala. This is definitely one of those series where no matter how much you play or how many games you go through, you just can't get enough. Probably because there really isn't much in the way of a ceiling in these games, there's always more to collect, do, or improve on.

I'm also trying to balance playing this with Skyrim, another ridiculous time-sink of a game. So yeah, my backlog will be gathering dust for a while. Oh, and bye-bye social life.;)

No, that's the entire point of Gamergate. It started because of corrupt practices and sh*tty behavior on the part of devs and journalists. It literally started not because of the alleged 'favors', but because forums threads on the subject were being deleted and videos were being DMCA'd.

There's also the fact that most of those Doxxings were proven to have been faked by the victim, the messages was traced back to their own IP address. Where are you even getting your information? There's no "stopping women from ruining gaming" of any kind, the only ones "ruining gaming" are the ones who keep making this about them, its not.

So, your not even going to bother trying addressing any of my points? That's exactly the sort of attitude I'm talking about, if your going to take the "I'm right. your wrong, end of discussion" route then there isn't much left to say on the matter.

That's fine thought, we'll just have to agree to disagree. If Gamergate's biggest "crime" is being more important to people than you think it is, then I'd say that's a good thing.

Just one thing though, I don't think Gamergaters see it as important as you think they do. A lot of the time its other people making the topic about Gamergate, riling people up and causing a huge back n' forth. You can't expect it to end when people like Anita Sarkeesian go on the news talking about it. Its basically just the next controversy in gaming, like the one Jack Thompson spearheaded in the early 2000's. Only difference is this one has a name.

This is the first time Nintendo has really pushed refurbished hardware. They could have last gen to help keep up with demand, but they didn't have to because they were flying off shelves.

Why would you push refurbished hardware so much if you'd rather people bought it new? Either you have a lot of excess hardware you need to get rid of, or you really need to boost sales. Its either that or sales and price-drops, selling refurbished hardware is a good middle-ground.

@MoonKnight7
I don't care about people being misinformed, what I care about is willingness to listen to reason. Disagreeing with it is one thing, claiming it to be nothing but lies and conspiracy theories is another. It kills any hope of having an actual discussion.

That's the thing about Gamergate, a lot of it has been in response to other things. Evidence of people doing 'favors' for one another (no, not just Mrs.Quinn), a dozen articles all making gross generalizations about gamers (not just 'Gamergaters', gamers), you get the picture. Both sides have done their share of mud-slinging, but only one actually seems to condone and police it. Gamergate is also the only one that seems to catch any heat for it.

Yes, gaming is just a hobby for most people, but some are more passionate than others and take their hobbies very seriously. When people feel there's something negatively impacting their hobby, naturally that's an issue they feel needs to be addressed. That's just how it is, "waste of time" or not, they feel very strongly about it.

That couldn't be any farther from the truth. First off, Adam Baldwin didn't start Gamergate, he saw all the commotion and called it that because of a thing from Firefly. He merely gave it a name, nothing more nothing less.

Second, Gamergate has nothing to do with any if that, there was no "truth" being spread, only false generalizations. That so-called truth is what spawned #notyourshield. Gamergate has nothing to do with women in the industry, except that some of the opposition just so happen to be women. Heck, a good chunck of them are MEN, so where is this 'anti-women' attitude you speak of? Most of Gamergate's targets don't fit that discription.

I'm not even touching that last part, you seriously have to drag rape into this? That's one HECK of a loaded accusation. Talk about "bad assumptions".

@Quorthon
The thing about Gamergate, is unlike most other movements, its only really a cooperative effort. There is no actual leader so most of the organization comes from individual groups.

Gamergate has done a lot of good, such as getting advertising pulled from news sites and getting them to change their policies, but there's also those who jumped on the "anti-SJW" bandwagon. That's why you get guys like Alex Jones supporting it, Gamergate is fighting a common enemy. Does the saying "the enemy of my enemy is my friend" ring a bell?

Thank you though for illustrating my point about people having a bad impression of it. Unfortunately, you also took that extreme and ran with it, those people are as much a representative of Gamergate as Anita Sarkeesian is of feminism or Tim Schafer is of game developers.

All the hate is probably because people feel he's spreading misinformation about what Gamergate is. The moment people comment about feeling harrassed people on the pro-Gamergate side flip sh*t because of that.

@Caryslan
You know, his very well may be a case of history repeating itself. The whole reason Nintendo ventured into those other markets way back when was the company fell on hard times, and the card business wasn't enough. Now, they aren't exactly in such a dire situation, but that same feeling of needing to expand their horizons is there.

It sounds to me like what they're trying to do is basically make health and fitness fun. They may also share technology where it makes sense, such as putting a vitality sensor into their controllers. Hopefully all goes well though.

@Ryu_Niiyama
The only problem with that comparison is most of their venture have been into related markets, such as other forms of media and hardware to run it on. Sony is also down-sizing and restructuring due to most of those other divisions doing badly.

What people are concerned about is them focusing too much on their new pet project, which if it fails could do more harm than good.

So if giving consumers "options" is the reason, then why not just discontinue the original line (besides the 2DS) and replace it with the New 3DS versions? There can't be much confusion if New 3DS's are the only option, besides why its called "New" in the first place. The only difference would be one is 'XL', a term most people are familiar with.

We're a "different market" but somehow not different enough for the original 3DS to still be sold? Even if the original 3DS wasn't discontinued, there's no point in selling it when a newer, better version exists.

As for piracy, interestingly, pirates apparently also spend the most money. Basically, its a case of being huge media junkies. Not to say that justifies it, but its interesting, and rather ironic.

The only thing with ranged weapons is they need a bit more planning and strategy with the different shot types and stuff, and they have less room for error.

Cute, but I never said anything about it being free.:P

That 30-day trial started last year when it launched, most people have likely used it up by now. What I'm talking about is the one year subscription being the only option. That $5 is to pay for a whole year of server-space for storage, which not everybody wants. Alot of people only want the transfer tool.

Why not give people the option of paying for a shorter period, say 2-3 months? Or make an app version that uses the SD card for storage? Considering this actually would have been in the game due to having been a standard feature as of gen 4, and people have to pay $5 for not even 5 cents worth of service according to the montly cost, they should do something.

Either way, my point still stands. This doesn't effect just LP's, this applies to any and all Nintendo content. How are people "lying" about the circumstances?

The only one who benefits from this is Nintendo, seeing as the only people for whom Nintendo content is their bread n' butter already have a deal made through another network. Before you say it, no, choosing NOT to bring the hammer down isn't a "benefit".

No, regardless of who this program is intended for, it affects everybody. People have been staying away from doing Nintendo content because of Nintendo going around claiming videos.

If people don't want to apply, but want to do even a few Nintendo videos, they still must abide by Nintendo's creators program. That includes the white-list, which is missing both some huge games (Pokemon, Smash Bros.) and less popular ones (Fire Emblem, Bayonetta). So, if say, your a huge Zelda fan, It might not even be worth the effort to deal with it, it just slows things down and makes keeping a schedule harder.

Thats completely disregarding Nintendo personally approving each video's content. Its not just a trial period either, its standards procedure. That right there is ripe for abuse.

I might bite, only because I haven't transferred my Pokemon from Y to AS yet. Thats why people are "blowing this out of proportion" (they're not) @Tsurii897, its also an obvious extra incentive to subscribe. Game Freak isn't stupid, they know that.

The only thing that was said is "a system whereby you can give orders to your teamates". They removed it due to matches being too hecktic. Sounds like preset phrases to me, text-based communication is the only thing that'd be too slow for a game like this. There's no way voice chat is "too slow" to be effective.

As for the strategy argument, or lack there of, basing that off looks is pretty weak sauce. Does Smash Bros. look like it offers complex strategy? How about Pokemon? I think we both know the answer. People were expecting a competitive shooter, Nintendo's answer to COD or L4D, so I'd say their disappointment at what seems like yet another party-style game is understandable.
