  1. Do you think a Zelda RPG could work?

    I think a Mystery Dungeon Zelda spinoff would be best, since clearing dungeons is already what Link does. I hear the Pokemon MD's are mediocre, but Shiren the Wander (DS) is excellent, and I think a Zelda-fied version of it would work well.
  2. Do you think a Zelda RPG could work?

    If you want Zelda to become a turn-based RPG, what will make it better than the games you mentioned? What will make it unique? Unique turn-based gameplay is very possible, like Clash of Heroes and Shiren the Wanderer, but the last Nintendo game with really good TB combat was Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, over a decade ago. Unless you count Mario + Rabbids, which was mostly developed by Ubisoft.
  3. Do you think a Zelda RPG could work?

    @DisobeyedCargo Can you define "RPG"? Because the Zelda series has already toyed with nearly all standard RPG mechanics.
  4. Mario Kart: Is bullying still an issue?

    My advice would be to play a racing game with less direct player interactions. (Or rather, interactions that are avoidable) In Mario Kart, if someone targets you with powerful items, there is not much you can do to stop them. In futuristic racers (which usually emphasize skill more), you can just... go so fast that they don't catch up. In F-Zero GX you can use a side attack to smash them completely off the track. Very satisfying. As far as I know, Mario Kart 8 shares 90% of items with Mario Kart 7, so yeah, there's probably still bullying.
  5. how to make girls like you??

    As a gentleman who has never been rejected, here is my advice - 1. Don't be a crippling nervous wreck when talking to faces you aren't intimately familiar with. If this is your natural personality trait, you're kinda hosed. 2. Just ask to hang out. When you hang out exactly 3 times, serve the Compatibility Questionnaire. It's very important, and speeds up the dating process exponentially. If it turns them off, that just means they aren't science-minded enough to appreciate a good questionnaire. End the relationship immediately. 3. If you score even one date, you have already beaten my record. 4. If none of that works, you can get REALLY scientific - https://www.ted.com/talks/amy_webb_how_i_hacked_online_dating Good luck.
  6. so how wrong was I

    When you sneeze into the open, you spread germs. When you spread germs, people get sick. When people get sick, hospitals get crowded. When hospitals get crowded, viruses spread. When viruses spread, a zombie apocalypse happens. Don't make a zombie apocalypse happen. Get rid of cable and upgrade to DirecTV.
  7. I find it funny that you guys mention unreliable controls, unskippable tutorials, empty worlds, and similar issues. A month ago I started a gaming blog and have already addressed these topics to some extent. https://funpersecond.wordpress.com/
  8. So I just got Bayonetta, any tips?

  9. Gameplay. All other elements are unnecessary and secondary to the extent they aren't justifying or complementing gameplay. "Story in a game is like a story in a porn movie. It's expected to be there, but it's not that important."
  10. Let's build a dream game: Metroid Prime 4

    I hope Prime 4 is cleverly designed to minimize backtracking for the player who knows where they're going... with lots of shortcuts connecting the world. Prime 1 did some of this, but there could be more. I also hope the save points act as a fast travel system, and refill ammo as well. Put all the pit stops in one room, yeah? Most importantly, doors should open instantly and cutscenes should be minimal and skippable. I want a seamless flow of gameplay with no down time.
  11. Let's build a dream game: Metroid Prime 4

    I agree with everything else you said.
  12. So, a racing game where you can make things spontaneously explode? Neat. Although, it doesn't look like it'll reach the sheer speed and intensity of F-Zero GX.
  13. From a Famitsu Weekly interview with Tetsuya Nomura - FW: You are the one who writes out the plot for all the titles of the series, so when writing up the story what do you focus on above all else? Nomura: Making it “surprising.” While I’m writing out the plot, if things seem that you can predict the outcome on your own, then I think of a different, unexpected development. KH is the definition of Kudzu Plot. I expect KHIII will vainly attempt to clean things up, but I doubt people will look back on KH and say "Yeah, that was a very sensible story."
  14. Yes, yes, the Bangai-O series are the strongest shmups you can get for $10. Watching footage should immediately tell you if you'll enjoy it. Each missile is like a tiny fragment of fun! If you want a more traditional, score-based shmup, Sin & Punishment 2 is the best the genre has to offer.
  15. Good RPGs about pirates/boats?

    The legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass has pirate-y stuff in it.
