#315407 Project Cars Dev "We Really Dislike Nintendo Users"

Posted by Leland on 26 June 2015 - 07:33 AM

Thanks for clarifying. It's confusing either way and they really mucked up the whole situation by simply not being up front from the get go. That's the main issue

Reading further Kickstarter looks to be wrong as it was their own crowd funding setup which helped fund development.

None of that makes up for leading on a userbase for so long with half truths and misinformation.


It is really confusing, but it's also an important distinction to make; the popular narrative going around is that the game was primarily/largely funded by Nintendo owners, when in reality the console versions were added at the end of the crowdfunding.

I guess the big thinkers behind this can't tell the difference between a first person shooter and a third person shooter  :blink:

#315135 Guerilla Games new IP Horizon

Posted by Leland on 21 June 2015 - 02:31 PM

This  kind of insensitive ignorance.

Not in the least. This has nothing to do with native Americans and claiming that it does....that's ignorant.

Few native developers around and sounds they are not happy with it. In fact some I get 1st hand word that Guerilla been approached about it at E3 with some really upset people. I won't say one of the name I know. Thing is the main character they showed was specifically doing Native tribe stuff. the reasoning is hilarious,they said they didn't want race to be a thing that people thought about.White people exist because of melanin deficiency.If you're making a game 100s of years in the future, in the sun drenched plains of north America they aren't going to have light skin.Deep red hair is called the manic gene,it's like "This game has to be realistic" "Thats why they're all white" "And we have robot dinosaurs"

You won't name a name because it's bullsh!t, that's why.

They're not depicting native Americans; it's a futuristic society that's regressed to wearing animal skins in a manner similar to native Americans. It's fantasy, not a commentary on Native American culture.

This looks about as offensive to Native Americans as Game of Thrones. Tribes =/= Native Americans...get over it.

#314808 Next proper Metroid Prime not likely until Nintendo's next console

Think this confirms what most of us suspected:


Stand by for an NX Zelda U announcement as well.

#311366 Zelda Wii u delay = NX launch title?

Posted by Leland on 02 April 2015 - 04:52 AM

im still curious on to why everyone thinks the nx will be the next console. It is clearly a handheld, especially sicne the 3ds is "far" older than the wii u (about 6-7 years old by the time we get the nx wii u being maybe 5)

Well, Nintendo announced the Revolution at E3 in 2004, and unveiled it as the Wii a year later at E3 2005. The GC was barely 2.5 years old at the first announcement with sales of 15 million units. The Wii U is about 2.5 years old now, with sales of under 10 million, so it's very possible Nintendo is talking about the Wii U's successor.

Seems to me something might be up with this game. Considering it was originally slated to launch this year, they've shown barely more than mock ups. Perhaps they will prepare a version for the NX.

#301172 [Kickstarter Part 2] Tear my Kickstarter apart... time to wash my hands and redo

Posted by Leland on 27 October 2014 - 10:25 PM

Since you're asking for honest opinions, I think you might have trouble getting this funded.

You might want to consider narrowing your scope a little - maybe focus on getting ONE awesome game demo up and running before you seek funding. You've announced three whole games here, an app store and a tablet, but nothing that looks very high quality (yet).

I'm also curious, why a tablet and an app store? The uplay tablets are, forgive me for saying, kind of craptastic. You might have better luck marketing to more well established tablets like Apple's and Google's.

Anyway, that's just my opinion - good luck with your Kickstarter!

#300796 GAMER-GATE

Posted by Leland on 22 October 2014 - 04:28 AM

Well that's not why gamergate discussions get shut down, but that's besides the point...
I stopped seriously responding to 3dude quite some time ago except for the single response on the last page, which was more of a general comment towards anyone on the anti gamergate side.

What blows my mind is that it's the site staff here doing the lion's share of the flaming. What's the point of having moderation if the moderators are off their leashes and calling community members idiots?

@3Dude: If you lack the maturity to agree to disagree with someone and move on instead of shoving your opinions down everyone's throats every chance you can, then you have no business calling yourself a moderator. You're supposed to be here to protect the community against this sort of abuse, not fuel it.


#291652 Guillermo del Toro confirms Pacific Rim 2

Posted by Leland on 26 June 2014 - 09:04 PM

That's unfortunate.

It's sad to see a talented filmmaker start turning out garbage like this - a transparent and trite storyline with overblown special effects. But hey, I guess legions of overweight anime nerds now have something to else to jerk off to.

#286492 Digital Foundry on Mario Kart 8 -- 720p Native

Posted by Leland on 25 May 2014 - 04:14 AM

But now what you have are a bunch of so called experts who CLAIM they were all in to buy a WiiU but now because of this issue they refuse to and as one poster of Neogaf said nintendo "BLEW IT" damn gamers make me laugh now and days

But on the plus side, at least the morons going around claiming that the Wii U was more powerful than the XB1 "becuz it haz mor 1080p games" will finally shut up.

anyone notice the excuse to bring attention to show bias. They did say they hold Nintendo to a higher standard, then use that to bring more attention to nitpicks.

Not really, they're that picky with very game they analyze.

#267237 The Secret Developers: Wii U - the inside story

Posted by Leland on 18 January 2014 - 08:45 AM

I haven't posted here in a long time but after reading this article I just had to see what everyone's reaction on here would be.

I mean for the longest time I've been defending third parties on this forum when everyone was saying "They are trying to kill Nintendo its a conspiracy bla bla" and finally this beautiful article comes out of nowhere. It pretty much explains everything but also just confirms what I've been saying all along that Nintendo messed up the launch and the lack of third parties is Nintendo's fault.

I still have my Wii U and I have 9 games for it so I've done my fair share of supporting Nintendo and I enjoy the console for what it's worth. I will definitely enjoy it more when X, Bayonetta 2, Mario Kart 8, Donkey Kong, Super Smash Bros, and a few other games are released but I can't help but think of what could have been with the Wii U.

It could have been a true next-gen console that competes with the PS4/Xbox One has all the same third party games on top of Nintendo exclusives and a online network that rivals PSN and Xbox Live If this was the case and I had to pick between Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One I would have picked Wii U.

Mistakes were made with the console but at least the games are great and the 3DS is a huge success so Nintendo is here to stay for a long time but they really dropped the ball on the Wii U.

A Twitter post vs an entire in-depth article? If you can find me an article that is as informative as the EuroGamer one that explains the lack of 3rd party support from an actual developer who has worked with Nintendo like the guy in the EuroGamer article I will gladly read it. I don't want some conspiracy article either. I've yet to get an explanation from Nintendo in my email and haven't stumbled upon an article anywhere else.

I think the Nintendo Enthusiast piece is kind of a joke - it’s not even a real rebuttal.

IMO, the thesis of the original article is that Nintendo doesn’t give third parties the type of support they need, not that the “WiiU is harder to develop for." I think the intent there is to kind of poke Nintendo and say “hey, you should be doing this better."

It seems like every time an article like the Eurogamer one appears, sites like these immediately retaliate with one like this, apparently without even having read the source article closely.

#262749 If the Wii U is not powerful...

Posted by Leland on 21 December 2013 - 07:01 PM

Actually my friend who is as dev was telling me when it comes to the GPU it went like this PS4>Wii U>XBO

Sounds like your friend needs to consider a new career.

Oh boy, if Fox News is predicting this then Nintendo really might be in trouble.
