That's fine. Like mellow mode in yoshis wooly world... I wont use it and they wont need to make the normal game too easy for the sake of kids.

I'm all in favor of a full range of difficulty settings and vastly prefer them to the solution you saw in mario 3d world, dktf and sonic lost world of tempting you with an easy option should you die a few times in a row. Lost worlds implementation of that system was utterly terrible.

Jim throws in his 2 cents:

Yeah, saw it yesterday. Spot on as always. I like when he dropped the Dark Souls bomb too :P. I'm really sick and tired of the "hardcore" community. The most options and customization, the better. Now I can play Star Fox Zero with my 4 years old cousin and have some fun. Which is what games are about in the end.

 

As someone who really likes the souls games I'm all for an easy mode. I find the repetitive difficulty to be detrimental to my enjoyment of the game, but i really enjoy the world's, creatures, lore ect, and wish I didn't have to beat my head against a wall to get to them.

So then you'd have no problem if this was added to every game and genre out their. Telltale Games, Smash Bros, Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, Pokemon, Zelda, Simulations, & MMO's.

No problem whatsoever.

You'd have no problem if someone just turns on this mode. Stands still, and just punches characters to unlock each of them, in street fighter 5. And gets cleared arcade mode achivment. And then hearing people complain the games too short. This is what this mode would eventually devolve into. Reviewers will eventually abuse this. And someone is gonna mess up on their article.

Stop trying so hard to find problems were there are not, those are movies in your head, what we have here is a E rated game with an extra easy difficulty mode. Nothing more.

Never gonna agree. This is a no difficulty mode. That is my problem. If this was never a problem. Why do people go off, when others used action replay and gameshark on brand new games, in the past. People have said you're cheap and are lazy. Now all of a sudden, it's fine? And I was defending easy mode in another thread. But you still had to fight your way through the game. Now, if you get pissed, just shut it off. It just be more better to hit skip section.

Because that people is childish.

As long as it is just an option that does not affect anyone else is ok, if this was a competitive multiplayer game where you can unlock things way more easily playing an invincible mode, that maybe would be unfair, but there is nothing unfair about this one.

And it makes special sense in this case because this game is using a very weird control system that needs some practice, so this way very young or very casual players can use it to practice without the stress of being dying constantly since the very first minute, wich is something that makes a lot of those players to stop playing at all.



I completely missed this news and it's already over a week old. Anyway, it is very similar to other easy options Nintendo has experimented with over the last several years. If you don't want to use them, don't use them. If you want to get recognition for mastering the game, you'll have to master it.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

How other people choose to play the games they paid for and have fun is none of my business as long as it is not being forced on me, which it isn't here, as it's completely optional.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Makes sense for small kids, I don't see why not.

It is a travesty though. :D
