    in Politics Discussion on 30 November 2011

    Talk about what's "natural" for societies can easily fall prey to the Naturalistic Fallacy: arguing that something is superior because it is "natural". But nature doesn't interact simplistically with human beings. Being aware of what they are, and of nature, humanity is able to make decisions that other animals cannot. As a result, you cannot assume "the natural way" is better, or the unnatural...

    Loads of Skyward Sword info

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 July 2011

    People are either nuts, juvenile, or Sean Malstrom fanboys if they're freaking out over the mention of Link growing up in a boarding school as part of the game's backstory. If we rewind back to 2003, it'd be people going insane when they heard Link had a grandma at the start of the game and percolated wild ideas that the entire game would be nothing but Link performing fetch quests for his...

    Red Steel 2. WTH happened???

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 February 2011

    Most people I actually know who tried Red Steel II thought it was a fine game. Still a bit rough and could use a couple of tweaks to some of its concepts, but on the whole, really good. Only one I know didn't care for it, but he is someone who hates all motion controls on concept alone and only plays FPS-like games on PC. The bigger point though has little to do with the quality of the game, I...

    DKC Returns is TOO HARD

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 December 2010

    DKCR is not that hard at all. Compare it to a NES Megaman game and it's almost a walk in the park. The one complaint about difficulty I believe is valid lay in the bosses. The bosses in the game are flawed because of the premise behind their design: they ape (pun not intended) the style of Rare's DKC bosses in the original SNES games. Retro tried to fuse that with the scripted, timed gameplay...

    The Malstrom thread 2: Revenge of the Lapsed Gamer

    in Nintendo Discussion on 29 November 2010

    Malstrom just posted an email from someone on a ranty whinefest against Donkey Kong Country Returns - whoever wrote it sounds as if they're crying because a lava level was too hard for them :D Then they proceed to construct a conspiracy theory as to why the game is "garbage" because it's Yet Another Industry Game, Just Like Mario Galaxy.  For his part, Malstrom first says he can't comment...

    The Official Metroid Other M Thread

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 August 2010

    I doubt that Corruption sold "poorly" due to too much scanning and backtracking. Those elements are what fans of the Prime series loved. New people wouldn't have been familiar with it one way or the other in advance. More, I think it's due to Wii sales of "hardcore" looking games are unpredictable even when they're published by Nintendo and part of a storied franchise. People seem to forget what...

    Will there ever be a 3d mario game that isn't star finder mario?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 25 May 2010

    The star/flag pole thing is misdirection. This is what is actually different about 2D versus 3D Mario:In 3D Mario - especially with all of Galaxy's refinements - the path to the goal involves solving many physical puzzles and using Mario power-ups as tools required to navigate scenarios designed around the use of those power-ups and gadgets.In 2D Mario, the entire course to the goal can be...

    NeoGAF makes me lol.

    in General Discussion on 09 May 2010

    Seece said:They just come across as very jealous and worried about VGChart'z popularity. GAF is actually a very good Internet community, and their outstanding feature is that they really do contain trolling in intelligent ways - they don't feed the trolls, keep the truly amusing ones around for fun, and ruthlessly banhammer the average Internet moron without pity or remorse....

    The Malstrom thread

    in Nintendo Discussion on 30 August 2010

    Malstrom has been on a crusade against Sakamoto for over a year now. What's funny is the narrative he's built up is distorting reality, and history. Malstrom has concocted a dramatic story - just the thing to rile up fanboys and launch a jihad - in which Sakamoto is an vile thief. Sakamoto swept in and "kidnapped" the pure and pristine legacy of poor Gunpei Yokoi, to pervert the memory of the...

    The Malstrom thread

    in Nintendo Discussion on 24 August 2010

    People have to remember that Malstrom is a character. The writer is calculating. He says things designed to annoy people in order to make them argue points and inadvertently rethink their positions - it doesn't always work. For example, looking at the big picture you can see the vendetta against Mario Galaxy 2 is partially fake. In some posts, he says that direct sequels to Mario games never sell...

    Great job administrators but...

    in Sales Discussion on 01 June 2010

    I hate to say it, but I'm just about completely unhappy with the new concept and layout. (Yeah, I haven't posted on the forums much, but have read the site for years.) For my two cents, what happened here is the new hub and site concept overcompensates. It is nonsensically cluttered and arranged. The white and grey color scheme on the vgchartz section makes all fields blend together; it's...
