Zyph commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

What a way to put it. It's not that Nintendo gamers don't want AC titles. It's just that most sales were raked in by PlayStation and Xbox (and we all know why). To add to that, they delayed Rayman Legends back then and now with Watch Dogs. So I really think they're partly to blame for Nintendo gamer's current attitude towards them.

Zyph commented on Hacker Claims to Demonstrate an Exploit to Mod...:

Game "mods" always lead to exploits that leads to hardware/system-wide hacking that leads to pirating games. I don't like this.
I used homebrew. I think they're cool and all. But if it should lead to piracy in the long run? Not good...

Zyph commented on Nintendo Files Patent for "Eye Tracking" Devic...:

@TheRealThanos Can't find it either. I think it wasn't a DSiWare game but a packaged software. Not sure though. And all of the things you said is true. Thanks for that. It seems these people just takes things for granted. I'm not biased or trying to defend Nintendo in any way, but those "anti-gimmick" guys doesn't even try to see the value in what Nintendo is trying to do (gameplay-wise) even if they won't use them at all. I always thought, what if these "gimmicks" were actually the standard of gaming since long ago and the "traditional" method of playing were the gimmicks. Now the original PS Eye for the PS2 was a gimmick. Not sure for the PS4 though. The Kinect imo isn't 'cause it adds value to games in some ways, but you could argue that most of the games using it says otherwise.

@daveh30 Yeah but they're not the first one to use it. And besides the patent focuses on the parallax 3D effect on 2D displays. In Sony's case, they're using Project Morpheus for that. Spectators will still see the game being played normally on the TV. As for the patent, even if you're not the one wearing the glasses or the head mount, you can still see the effect on the 2D display.

Aside from Johnny Lee's Wiimote concept, the idea was already implemented on the DSi with Looksley's Line Up using the inner cameras for motion tracking. Remember that game?
The concept of the tech is really amazing if executed properly. I prefer this method for creating 3D parallax "illusions" rather than having to sit directly in front of a 3D TV. I read the whole patent application and there's definitely a lot of potential.

Zyph commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Explains His Belief That the ...:

Shooters. A great example of creative immaturity. Yeah they're great and sometimes competitively fun. They have unique aspects to them across all the shooters available. But shooters are still shooters. You fire a gun to kill. That's it. That's basically the premise of these games. Whatever you put on top of that is just icing on the cake IMO. That said, I still enjoy playing some of them. But that's not really the point. Don't even compare them to the hundreds of platformers out there. You can be more creative on those than games constantly firing guns and explosives.

This game looks like a ton of fun! I recommend watching the Splatoon match between NCL devs and the Treehouse guys. So fun to watch. You can clearly see the developers having a blast themselves. Especially Sakaguchi-san.

It's like even if the game bombed he won't have any regrets! I like it!
The graphics are cool for me and also the style of combat. It was going to be developed originally for the PS360 afterall. And with all those publisher changes I wouldn't be surprised by the changes up to this point. We still got a year so they can still improve on it visually.

Zyph commented on Mercedes DLC Confirmed for Mario Kart 8 in the...:

I don't understand this people in the comments.
Even though this kart (car?) doesn't really suit Mario Kart does not mean it doesn't "suit" the game. Your reasoning is because there are already real car simulator games out there and it doesn't fit in the game.You can still get the quirkiness and craziness of Mario Kart just as the other karts available in the game. When was the last time you saw a Mercedes being hit by turtle shells? It's also FREE so why the hate?

I think you guys did a wrong move by using that picture to be the article image. Even if you read thru the article it's still confusing and most people would still refer to that as the new pad for Wii U.

Zyph commented on Talking Point: The Nintendo Figurine Platform ...:

The problem is that even though Nintendo has these famous characters and IPs, Skylanders has different sets of monster figurines every single time a new game comes out. Unless they make full use of ALL there renowned characters, they'd do well to create new IPs at least for the sake of there figurine line. Now that's a probable money-making machine.

Zyph commented on Nintendo Looking To "Harvest" 3DS Success To A...:

It's understandable that they would focus on the 3DS to recapture profitability. But that does not mean they'll leave Wii U out. They need that profit driver (3DS) to support their other hardware (Wii U). You guys would do well to actually read the the statements in the briefing.
