Nintendo has a lot of convention presence and I like a lot of people can’t go to these big gaming conventions. So lately Nintendo has been doing things to help people get to try out these games at like bestbuy locations and stuff. That being said it’s no where near enough because even the latest attempt at letting average gamers play things excluded several states in the US and even if one was in your state it didn’t mean it wasn’t hours away to the point of being no where near worth going to. It honestly makes me a bit upset when they are talking about sharing these games like at last E3 when they weren’t really. E3 is a press event us normal people can’t get into E3 and the locations were few and far between. I’m not saying they shouldn’t put demos in E3 or at Bestbuy but it’s about time they really helped us gamers.
You may not remember this dude but he was messing with Nintendo fans trying to get them to buy a Xbox one during the Nintendo best buy event. I know for a fact no one is breaking into my home and telling me to get an Xbox one. Finding a way to send these event demos to the consumer directly helps us avoid the many problems with going to these bigger social events even if we are in the area. Be it Traffic, the cost of gas, harassment, time, or more going out isn’t always the best thing to do, more so when it would be to wait in line to play some game for 10 minutes.
Maybe they would get some negative pull from the media for sharing with fans and it would be a bad over all PR move because of that. If that is the case then they need to find another way to actually keep us feeling like were a part of these special Nintendo events. Maybe giving straight up free classic versions of games they announce during E3 for the limited time the cons going on or maybe a massive sale on related titles. They need some way to make us feel like E3 isn’t just about impressing stock holders but also sharing the sense of community they claim it they are bringing with these events.
So I’m hispanic and Iw as wondering, oh well lets see how many hispanic characters are around in that pop culture since I know we hardly ever get to see people of color in media. What I found was worth a laugh.
Here is a few in Video…
Wait so are we forgetting about Dom Santiago from Gears of War?
I’m not latin@ but i think he had a a pretty decent fleshed out character and was not stereotypical? i mean yes, better representation and more of it, but don’t forget him!
There’s also James Vega, Steve Cortez and Ashley Williams in Mass Effect 3 but i haven’t played that game yet to see how they were characterized.
but yes, better/more representation!
I’m so happy to see this post getting another resurgence of notes. This is something that should really be getting discussed.
I am not into the Gears series so I can’t really comment on him.
The ME3 characters for sure aren’t sterotypes but I feel like all three weren’t really round characters and given that it’s set in the future where almost everyone on earth would be mix raced since current trends in breeding have show that it’s the future we are getting it’s good to at lest seem them not make everyone on the crew who is human white.
Anyway I just wanted to thank everyone who is reblogging and liking and i’m happy to see a post I made spark this much conversation.
This month is a bit worse then last month however I think I might actually use the 200 coins for Yoshi. I love that game regardless of how simple it is. Still I hate the Wii game as a reward since it becomes a useless slot for anyone who doesn’t want to play with a Wii Mote. The 3ds line up is pretty darn week here, they for sure aren’t brining their A game this month. Nintendo still needs to make club nintendo better over all to really face off against the competition in terms of love to the fans. Regardless here at the games get the stuff if you want it.
So this game will be releasing June 5th in Japan with this pretty boy cover. It’s nice to see the three schools represented in this and I imagine each will serve a mentor depending on the academy you chose at the beginning. I’m still praying that Bushiroad gets FuRyu’s head out of there ass and lets someone localize this game for us western gamers. Vanguard is dying off in a lot of areas leaving a lot of us fans without an other option. Vanguards international facebook sits at almost 75k fans as of writing this and the USA page at almost 14k. Thats more then enough to support it at lest as a digital game. If you want to see more of my thoughts on why the game should get localized please read the link below to an older post I did.
Recently people found this on XBLA now not a lot of official information is out so I waited to make a smarter thoughts post about this then just rushing in talking about the game being confirmed when we don’t even know for sure if it will be on past gens. However, no new information has came out so it’s my time to speculate and give thoughts.
We know we can play against a large selection of characters from each of the current 4 seasons before Arc V. We know the game will have be a download title for the xbox but it’s not confirmed if it’s 360, xbone, or both. We also don’t know if it is coming to any other console. We do know that the game will feature online co-op and online multiplayer. It will have download stuff like decade duels and other yugioh games but how much?
Now we see here the duelist in the screen shot is using Zane as there avatar but the name is Konami. It could still be possible that the player in this game could play as other Yugioh characters using decks themed around them. The name stays the same just to avoid confusion or something to that degree. We also see a tournament ladder looking thing in one shoot so maybe some sort of ladder mode will be a thing.
We see the player as a player avatar in this screen shot playing with the blue eyes structure deck. That means the game has a lest cards from up to that structure although with a march 24th release date I would assume they would want to at lest have the cyber dragon structure deck. The fact this game is coming out so soon also shows how quick it will become outdated. It’s releasing before Primal Origins, before pendulum summons, before waking the dragons. Come may this will already most likely be a thing of the past.
This thing could really be a quick cash grab given that they have not even officially announced the game and it releases with in the month. Even if this game gets updated will it be able to beat out Devpro, I don’t think so. Devpro is honestly perfectly crafted by hard working fans who give updates near every time cards are announced. If a Yugioh game wants to beat out Devpro they need more features then Devpro, to update at lest with every set release for a while and a story mode. Otherwise why buy a game that is below a fan made product? This could easily beat out Dueling Network given that manuel input is a thing and they update much slower then Devpro does. Also not everyone is willing to get Devpro since it is a download but unless this is a polished product I don’t see how it will sell well. If it’s an Xbox one exclusive it’s damned because no one I know who plays Yugioh ones an Xbone, they spend to much money on cards for a 500 dollar paper weight. This also begs the question, why didn’t they bring the 3ds game here? Did decade duels do so much better then world champ 2012? Konami is a big ball of bad choices as of late so i’m honestly not shocked but still it’s insane.
Inafune recently announced this little 3ds eshop title that is coming out in the summer in Japan. No word an any western release but they just announced the game so i’m not really surprised. So people do make games without kickstarter who would of thought?
The game looks really nice, I love sprite work and this is some solid spite work. It looks maybe a bit dated like a normal DS game but regardless I think it looks fine. The story seems interesting and this game very much looks like a megaman title. I look forward to seeing this game come out.
Ok so my next Bring that archetype back is done. We got Amazoness this time but I don’t have the starts of any others so please leave a suggestion as a reply or send one to me if you want.
I wanted to create a broken tuner and I figured being limited to Amazoness auto balanced it. This card adds more options to the deck and allows for some dumb stuff to come out of the deck.
The deck needs a stratos to get it’s combo’s off at the right time. This card lets you grabbing not only monsters but spells and traps as well. It really does a great job. I made this card 1800 so it couldn’t be searched with village by crashing swordswomen but left the stronger monsters deaths as now giving a search since this is when it’s summoned.
I should have most likely put a limit about only being able to control one but ehh they could use the buff. This could make some broken loops so the fix maybe needed. However, this allows for them to always have an XYZ or syncro if desired.
This was another fun card for the deck. I wanted an alien brain but for Amazoness and created this. I gave it the extra buff of still working with village allowing for the monster the player stole to be more effective.
This card is just a beater, much better then gem knight pearl but I wanted this to get over everything really in the game. Maybe I should have made it require 3 level 4 amazoness but I figured this would give the deck a powerful card other decks didn’t have an option to go into. It still wouldn’t be the best option most the time given the power of a lot of rank 4 monsters. Let’s face it destroying a whole field for two at the cost of damage is a bit more broken.
They needed a Syncro since I gave them a tuner and this card just sends a card to the graveyard regardless of any effects. This is just to get around lance, D fissure, Macro, and stuff. The burn damage is to add insult to injury but it’s not like rank 5 XYZ’s don’t have this kind of access.
Verzon the people who claimed to be raising bars are now saying that they would like to be raising prices for online gamers to game. Give companies an inch and they take a freaking mile. I feel sorry for anyone who would by an MMO on a Xbone or PS4 is this comes into effect since it would cost about 185 dollars to play that MMO that year before the price they change for internet. If companies start charging for how much internet we use in a time we use more internet then were going to be losing more and more money. I get that companies want to make money but counties like Japan have standard internet at a standard fee. Internet has moved from being a casual thing to becoming not only one of the bigger forms of entertainment but a need for people. Every time we let these companies increase the price of our stuff we are just hurting our selves. This is just the first coming of net neutrality if you have any petitions please send them to me the more I can sign the better.
The upcoming Shanate 3ds game has been delayed “A couple of months” as Wayforward announced on their Facebook and Twitter yesterday. They apparently need more time to polish the title with hopefully means they are making the game better. It’s a shame the games going to take longer since all the videos of it look like a solid title even if I wasn’t foaming at the mouth the get it. I hope we don’t see similar issues with half genie hero only because delays with Kickstarted games hurt the faith of the people who supported. Anyway the game should be good when released so we will all just have to wait.
Nintendo has Mii Verse, Nintendo has club Nintendo but NIntendo does seem to want negative feedback. I filled in my Survey for Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze pre-sale on club NIntendo a while back. It asked me why I wanted to buy the game but why aren’t they asking Nintendo owners why they don’t want to buy a game. They should be following up with consumers not expecting people to stay excited because it’s some game they are pushing. They have perfect Venues to get constructive criticism from people who actually buy Nintendo products but even their surveys are kind of them patting their own back.
I think Nintendo needs to have Survey’s frequently that ask consumers “What do you want, what about Nintendo do you not enjoy, what do you think about X event” getting consumers to really voice their thoughts and feelings. We know Nintendo at lest kinda reads these things since other wise they wouldn’t have people do them it helps them gather information on what their consumers think of there games as well as give that information to their 3rd party partners. I use these to state any problem I have with anything relating to what ever i’m filling out the Survey for but having more complaint surveys could help.
Nintendo could also create direct lines of communication thru twitter, and other social media allowing people to directly question Nintendo like other companies do. If I comment on a facebook page asking a question about the onging Pokemon club nintendo event it be nice to be answered or have a general answer actually a addressed for all to read in a further update . A PR person at the very lest should have a job to respond to fans questions that they can as well as report back the feedback.
At the end of the day I just want Nintendo to create a space where I can speak to real people about real problems. We live in the age of the internet and Nintendo needs to learn how to properly use it to connect to consumers. The steps they do right now are very minimal and id love to see them move forward with their direct line to the consumers after all they want to bring information directly to us.
