    Because the high quality platformer is on the console no one cares about and the average one is on the console people care about. Quality of the games be damned. If no one wants the console and the game is an exclusive it still won't sell. That's why I worry so much about Bayonetta 2.
    I get that Knack isn't amazing and didn't get that great of reviews but I think people are being a little spiteful.

    Next we will get Rebecca Black. Her all star will play her infamous Friday song, and attacks by firing out giant letters that spell out "FUN!" while she says it. Her transform animation involves her changing seats, as we know how indecisive she is. We so excited!

    If I had the game and was the type to buy DLC regularly, I might. Probably more likely than I would some obscure Sega character whose games I've never played.
    I mean don't get me wrong, this is an utterly bizarre situation. But maybe there is some mad logic to it, maybe they're trying to pull in the nontrivial number of Yogscast fans, get them to buy the game when they wouldn't otherwise.

    I don't think it makes any less sense than Danica Patrick, anyway.

    Then don't fucking buy it?
    It's a charity character. For charity. That you don't have to buy. At all.

    It's not? It's not called Sonic Racing Transformed, It's Sonic and All Stars Racing Transformed

    sjmaster92 reacted to Ming Ming Hatsune in General Nintendo sales/business discussion topic (previously: The Wii U Thread)   
    It's so obvious the Wii U has better games than both PS4 and XONE at the moment...the console launched last year and has a headstart. So yeah this Christmas, Wii U is the best.
    However I know in the long run I'll be using the PS4 more than the Wii U. So that's why I'm getting my PS4 first early next year before I get a Wii U.
    I just love Ratchet & Clank and Sackboy more than Mario.

    Why does Silent Forest look so unfinished in this version? Seriously that background and the generic blue rails reek of laziness. It looks like they just stopped caring at this point. Edit my mistake, only zone 2 looks this bad.

    sjmaster92 reacted to Diogenes in How Sega can fix Sonic   
    Yes it is.
    It's masturbatory garbage that would almost certainly kill the series by turning it into nothing more than an imitation of a 20+ year old game. Now I love the Genesis Sonics and I do think the series has a lot to learn from them, but regressing into copies of them instead of evolving and adapting is a death sentence, plain and simple.

    Tharja is popular because of the goddamn booty. I can't see anyone liking almost any of the characters in that game for their dry as fuck personalities. 
    Characters don't have to popular to be in SSB. I doubt people were clamoring for the inclusion of guys like ROB, Pit, or Mr. Game and Watch but there they are. What's more important seems to be a.) whether the development team likes a character, or b.) whether or not Nintendo need to promote a new game.

    DLC would be better than having such content shunted into second game, for which you pay full price.

    Honestly, all I want right now is a character reveal of someone new.
    After E3, all we got are characters that were already present in Brawl - I just can't get excited about characters I know almost everything about besides maybe a few tweaked attacks, it just makes me go "Eh, cool to have you back.", except maybe Sonic.
    My hype for this game is almost non-existant anymore. There's no need for "An awesome thing every day" like the Smash Dojo was, but just give me anything. I'm just bored at this moment.

    I did read the entirety of your post. I'm only quoting the first sentence because the rest of the post is just supplementary material used to defend that main point.
    Sonic is often associated with Nintendo, sure, but he is not some major part of Nintendo's history. Nintendo can, has, and will long into the future continue function without Sonic the Hedgehog. Sega is not in any way the powerhouse that it once was and it hasn't been for an extremely long time. Sega's continued association with Nintendo is more of means to get by and stay alive in the gaming world than anything else. Nintendo exclusive Sonic titles aren't really doing Nintendo any serious favors. Nintendo stands on its own far more than Sega / Sonic has in over a decade.
    Every single fucking point that has been made against Pac-Man's inclusion can be applied to Sonic so it's ridiculous to somehow act as if he (and several other characters) are exempt from your reasoning. You don't want Pac-Man in the game, sure, fine, but don't cite reasons that can be applied to characters already added to the game and feign ignorance.
    Relevancy is an especially laughable point considering Nintendo's treatment of the vast majority of the IPs represented in Smash Bros. Pac-Man has a brand new game coming out later this month. When was the last F-Zero game again?
    I'd rather not continue to talk about Pac-Man either, but some of the language used whenever he is brought up is rather irksome to me and I feel the need to respond to it. More so because I am actually a fan of the character.

    Once again, sounds like Sonic. Why do we keep making excuses for Sonic but not for anyone else? This whole talk of Pac-Man being a terrible character and other characters being more "deserving" is nonsense.

    And Pacman is an essential piece of gaming history.(that no one bought)I would wager most people don't even know that Klonoa exists. There may not be people that love Pacman with the fervor that a Klonoa fan loves Klonoa, but I would reckon that the total recognition and respect for Pacman across the gaming community outweighs the five people who like Klonoa a real lot. 
    Aren't they? From a certain perspective, that they were included means one less chance for anyone else, regardless of series; whatever time and energy went into them could've gone to someone else. If not for the ICs, maybe we could've got Ridley. Or Little Mac. Or Pit a game early. Or a Ganondorf that wasn't just a roided up Captain Falcon. Or any number of things.The real question is why Ice Climber needed a rep at all. How many dozens of games/characters are more important to Nintendo's history, more fondly remembered by gamers?You're free to hope for whoever you want, but Pac man not being especially liked and being largely irrelevant in modern days is a pretty poor reason to suggest he isn't or doesn't deserve to be in the running.

    It's cool if you don't like Pac-Man and don't want him in, but to use excuses like "He's not relevant anymore" is complete BS. When has being irrlevant ever stop Sakurai from putting in characters like ROB, Ice Climbers, you know the drill.

    It's even more BS when people recommend other Namco characters that are even less relevant over Pac-Man.

    Klonoa? When was the last decade he was even relevant?

    Edit: To be clear I'm not saying you shouldn't want Klonoa in either. Just don't say one character's irrelevant and then do a hyperbole by recommending another irrelevant one.

    Sounds like Sonic.
    Really man, I don't get the ridiculous amount of hate for Pac-Man in this topic. It's not like I'd be the type to choose him over Klonoa or anything, but stuff like the Pac-Man World series, the incredibly goofy Pac-Man 2: The New Adventures and his recent inclusion in Street Fighter X Tekken piloting a Mokujin mech are more than enough for me to develop a fondness for the character.
    I don't know man, I've always liked Pac-Man. I don't know shit about the cartoon that the new game is based off of but the game itself looks a bit like the Pac-Man World games so I kinda want to try it. I'd play Pac-Man in this game, no bullshit.

    Dude, Ice Climbers. ROB. Game & Watch. Wii Fit Trainer.
    Smash takes characters you never cared about and forgot even existed and makes you love them.

    I'll be damned if they ever put Kraid in (a tiny clone of him that only showed up twice more or less) as a Metroid rep before Ridley.

    And why are so many people opposed to the idea of wanting Pac-man in Smash Bros? I'm really curious.

    I think this will be of good help to people playing this game. Here you can ask for help when you're stuck on a part of Lost World.
    To kick things off...
    Silent Forest Zone 3's final Red Ring.
    Here's an image showing where it is:

    Now, see that wall in the distance? That there is the show stopper. I don't see any way past that wall - if I keep running, I'll run up the wall, not turn left, slide down the wall and die. If I jump to catch the other side, I won't make it and die. How. Just how do you get past it?
    On a final note, if the problem has spoilery stuff in it, please put it in spoiler tags and specify what specific thing it's spoiling.

    sjmaster92 reacted to WarioBone in Speculation Thread: The Third Wii U Exclusive Sonic Title   
    Honestly, nothing stated here has even remotely sparked my interest. A Mario/Sonic racing game? Snore. Mario Kart 8 already has my racing game attention. Sonic Riders 4? Yawn. All of them but the first one sucked, no reason to think another would be any better. Not to mention, racing game. Another Storybook game? Meh. More gimmicky crap. Sonic Heroes 2? Vomit.  Yeah no thanks.  Ever.
    I honestly don't care what the next Sonic game is. My eagerness for Lost World has even waned to the point of "Eh, it'll get here when it gets here". Unless Sonic Team really wows me, I might have to go ahead and say I'll likely give whatever this game is a pass.
    Also, I won't be purchasing either of the "next-gen" consoles, so anything that happens outside of the WiiU or 3DS is completely off my radar.

    And there in lies the problem. Again, it's 2013, they SHOULD be able to handle it by now.
    The Fancy Pants Adventures (downloadable platformer for XLBA/PSN/PC) has online, and from what I've played it works pretty well there.

    Not every Nintendo online effort has to be like Brawl. They don't have an excuse, it's 2013.

    sjmaster92 reacted to RK64 in Super Mario 3D World (Wii-U) - It's the cat's meow!   
    If that's the case, then that's very unwise of Nintendo; 3d Mario is known for its innovation in the platforming genre, and just repeating 3d Land's successes (which wont work on Wii U; 3d Land was impressive as it was the very first original 3d Mario tittle on a Nintendo handheld) just makes Nintendo look weak.
    Besides, 3d World has proven with its new trailers that it will be a very fun, unique spin on home-console 3d Mario and the introduction of 4 player co-op, even if many find it to be a pointless addition, will make this game stand out (outside of Ratchet All 4 One, I cant think of a single 4-player co-op 3d platformer out there...).

    In what ass-backwards world do you have to reside in to confuse perfection with excitement? Is the latter some sort of bad thing or are you just pulling the age-old "stop liking what I don't like" crap?
    No one has ever said that. Stop projecting out of a glass house. What people are doing is having healthy, constructive discussions about flaws, positives and what outweighs the other. There is a difference in expectations and results. What people might anticipate to be something good can end up being worse in practice. A game has problems? A Sonic game no less, which is a series that has been in the realms of the half-assed for an entire decade? Who knew! We don't actually know that until we get to play the game though, and the opposite of the aforementioned expectations applies.

    You and ArtFenix take so much pride in pointing out shortcomings, boasting how right you are and how "you're the only ones who care about making sense", even though what it essentially amounts to is moving goal posts. This presumptuous attitude is fucking bile, and frankly you two need to stop victimizing yourself with the "it's my opinion" excuse to justify this asinine behavior. That shit has no place here.
