Back to the original topic, i noticed they had a post your comments system and i was considering writing in that Wind Waker made me have the urge to stip off paint myself naked and decapitate a goat but then I relised the comments were screened.

I'm athetist, but i have to admit that i do occasionally question myself, (as mouse clicker was saying) but i just couldn't follow any sort of religion.

hmm, average number of votes in gamefaqs poll: 100,000 N° of votes in Cloud versus Link; 150,000.
Something wrong there.
Our doubt our resident Skater Boy who enjoys abbreviating words much like crappy teen bopper Avril woud understand such numbers, or where they came from
Listen mate, we all know there are other Squaresoft games, if you scrolled up about 3 posts before you arrived you would've seen us discussing the merits of Chrono Trigger.
We're Nintendo fans, I know that because we are all happily posting away at Planet Gamecube dot com so of course we are going to vote for Nintendo characters in the GameFaqs polls and of course we are going to be dissapointed if our favorite characters lost. I'm sure you would be very disheartend if Mario (you say italian like it's a bad thing) beat your longhaired girly man and Link (you say elf like it's a bad thing) beat the cross dressing cloud.
It's like you expected us to react the way we did and just wanted to be an arsehol and rub it in our faces.

Fuckity fuckfuckfuck.
Link is losing to some transvestite spikeyhaired pretty boy.
Fuckinghell what the devil is going on? Cheating must be at work here, it must be, theres no way Cloud could pull a lead like that so early in the contest.
Damn im really realyl annoyed at this

Nintendo Gaming / RE: "N5" design ideas
« on: September 01, 2003, 01:51:18 AM »
They need a big franchise to launch with the machine, Gamecube suffered because it didn't have a big franchise for a long time. Actually thatg is debatable considering the less then expected sales for Mario Sunshine.

Anyway back on topic. Apparently in it's predesign phases, the Gamecube was shaped like a flying scaucer ( I cant spell) , it was scrapped for space issues (cube is a more compact and less cabnet hoggin space than a scaucer (still cant spell)
Still nintendo should probbably concentrate more on making the machine look cool than actually be designed more logical. They designed the cube the way it is because it's a great shape, compact, cheap easy to make and the parts fit inside. Prehaps if they made a more sleek machine it'll be better received by the masses, which everone must know are stupid. (ie. how would've Hitler become leader of germany if the masses were smart?)
As for colours, I think silver, black and pearl white (you know, shiny whit white sorta white, not beige)

I dont like the idea of making it look like the NES.

Thanks alot mate. Anyway Michael8983 is right when he says that the N64 was technically superior to the PSX and that Nintendo were the only company to squeeze the juice from the machine (Well and Rare too)
I would just like to see EAD just push their next few titles more graphically, because we they probably could and the games would benfit from them.

Multible names? Let's see you click my profile, you get my name, address, email which happens to be I have a link in my sig to a gameboy website which just so happens to have a staff member called RABicle who posts in their forums using my old avatar. What kind of sceptic are you? Do I have to go and tell you the product id of my gamecube so you'll belive me that I own one or something? Did you even read my last post. i said i should take back things I said in the beginning and that I'm expecting too much, hardly someone who's stuck into an opinion.
The fact that i'm willing to question the ways of EAD shows that I'm not a totally blind fanboy, but a fanboy who happens to read a multiformat magazine. You dont know anything about me, do i have to get people from this forum who know me personally (Evilmanman) to clarify what I've said or something?

I was much more active in the days of the Ezboard forums, simply because my homepage is my ezbaod control center and I went to heaps of other ezboards. For those reasons I tend not to hang around here as much, and because I talk to the aussies on MSn more than in the boards.
Oh and being in Boarding school toned down my internet usage a great deal too.

Well if it is then PGC are kinda hypocrits seeing as last year they posted a link to the gamefaqs character battle on the FRONT PAGe to get mario over the line against cloud.
Final fantasy fans were fuming but even they neglected to notice that Cloud receive more tha the average number of total votes. (ie. gamefaqs would normally receive about 50k votes for the poll with each character getting their share of it. Cloud got 50k votes on his own while Mario still got more.)
So some square fansites were doing the same.

hey hey, I'm not saying the games are crappy, I'm just saying the graphics probaly arn't as good as they could be.
yes I think Zelda looks mindblowing, I love the look. I also like Mario Sunshines water effects. I shuld take back a few things I said at the start of this topic. EAD graphics arn't bad as sorta, but when you compare the quality of the gameplay and the sounds in their games it's almost as if the graphics ae taking a back seat. And while Gameplay should always be first graphics are very important in peoples initial impressions of the game.
Take halo for example, When people see it for the first time they would initially be impressed by it's stunning visuals, when they have a chance to play it they would enkoy the gameplay. Same goes for a stunning game like Metroid Prime. When a person sees Pikmin in action for the first time though, they might be turned off by the fact that the graphics arn't as good as they could be. Sure when they play it they'll enjoy it but first impressions is one of the most important factors when anybody buys a game. especially if ift's just your average gamer or your kid, two markets Nintendo used to have.

Mabye I am expecting too much. Mabye i'm used to the days when EAD were leading the industry in the graphics departments (see Mario 64, Mario Kart 64 etc.) Mabye I have been expeting those days to continue or something, I dont know. They are very talented and make some stylish games, but their exceptionally high levels in the gameplay stakes are far above what they are doing with graphics.

And they are making their games look better than a lot of other GCN developers, I only have to look at the Sega games I own (Crazi Taxi, Sonic 2, SMB) to see that.

I gotta say that this "thread" smells a lot like flame-bait.  Sorry, but it just does.  Just about everyone here feels that EAD does in fact create some great games with beautiful graphics.

Why is it that fanboy loners do nothing but complain?  I'm willing to bet that whomever started this"thread" hasn't even seen Mario Kart: Double Dash in person, as I have on more than one occasion.  It's graphics are bright and colorful.  It's a joy to behold.

Hey Rab, quit complaining I love the part where this "graphics genius" says that the average Ps2 game looks better than most GC games, LMAO!!!!  Take a look at the JOKE of a game that is the ps2 version of Soul Caliber 2 and you will know why I'm laughing

(BTW, am I the only one here who notices that the same, Nintendo bashing person keeps posting threads under different forum names?  Hmmm........I bet this kid doesn't have a GC...)

I'm glad you could go to the trouble of not adding anything to the disscussion but instead just flame me. real good man, real good.
This thread wasn't supposed to be flame bait, I was seeing if other people had noticed the fact that as a whole EAD arn't producing the same high quality of graphics that companies such as Capcom are.
Yes I have never seen mario kart in person. Living in a regional area of WA and having things such as school and life to attend to I cant spend all day attending Nintendo previews in stores and watching Mario Kart in person, so i guess you win whatever money you put on that bet.
I actually quite enjoy complaining and I'm glad you brought to our attension how much better Soul Caliber 2 looks on Gamecube when compared to the PS2 version. Obviously this means that the gamecube is a technically supirior machine, giving developers such as EAD no excuse for not being able to replicate some of the Playstations finer looking games.
And belive it or not, I am not the same Nintendo bashing person posting under a different name. I've been a member of this board ever since PGC swapped from the Ezboards, The only consoles I own are Nintendo consoles, including the Gamecube you believe I dont have. SO i looks like you lose the money you placed on that bet. Sorry. (I presume you thought I was evil because of my communist avatar or something)

Anyway now that I have dealt with you I'll state the next part of my case.
If you go down to any primary school, and ask some kids there why they like xbox or why they like Gran Turismo or something, one of the first things they will say is "Because the graphics are so good"
Now thats what would happen when you asked a primary kid, Primary kids ounce upon a time played kiddy games, they played Nintendo. Now if the kids arn't playing Nintendo, who else besides us here are? Because certainly the older casual gamer crowd seems to think that Nintendo is for kids, and they dont buy it and the kids are buying Playstations and Xboxs. And one of the most important things toa  kid is how good the graphics are. When I was in 5th grade I wanted a N64 cos it had the best graphics.
And if the best gamecube games arn't displaying the graphical quality they could be Nintendo are losing their ounce core market.

Also i'ld like to thank the people that brought to my attension the fact that the poly counts on Mario Sunshine could be low because of the complex wter effects it throws around. I beat the game a fair while ago and have forgotton just how good it looked. I can remeber that it would mysteriously dropp it's framerate greatly for seemingly no reason at all.
And lastly somebody was telling me that GCN games often look dodgy in screenshots when compared to Xbox and PS2 games because the GCN Debug kits simply wernt very good at taking the screenshots.

Nintendo Gaming / RE: the official "if i was running nintendo" thread
« on: August 22, 2003, 04:44:58 AM »
If I was running Nintendo I would simply release A huge MMORPG based on Pokemon as the next consoles launch title. It would have no monthly fees because in game advertising would pay for server maintenence. Now when you have free to play huge online 3d Pokemon game your going to sell large amounts of inventory.

Nintendo Gaming / Cant EAD make decent graphics?
« on: August 22, 2003, 04:41:22 AM »
Looking through those Mario Kart screenshots got me thinking. "Does EAD just not care about graphics or are they just crap?"
I'm mainly referring to the geometry or our figures, or the blockiness if you want to call it that. If you run down the EAD developed games on gamecube, Animal Crossing, Mario Sunshine, Zelda, Mario Kart, Pikmin, Luigi's Mansion etc. they are all very low in polygon counts. This is a bit of a bad image for Nintendo as some of their biggest games, look average when compared to your average Xbox or PS2 game, turning off the joe Blogs of the gaming world. Even turning off the young market who believe graphics is everything.
We all know the gamecube is powerful and capable of amazing graphics, as seen by the example shown to us my Retro Studios, Capcom, Nintendo System Technology, Amusement Vision and others. It just seems strange that EAD, arguably the single greatest and most influential of all video game developers, who would've had a say in the way the cube hardware was put togethor, produce such shoddy graphics.
I'm guessing that a) They dont care, graphics dont make a game great (I agree, but they can make a very good game even better)
or b) The way they are making their games is saving more processor grunt for the dynamics of the gameworld than the graphics.

You people agree?

Nintendo Gaming / RE: What should be Nintendo next big hit series
« on: August 22, 2003, 04:09:10 AM »
First off.
No developer is ever gonna think that they arn't capable of creating a big hit series without the help of others. What i mean is that collaborations between developers are very rare, Nintendo is one of the few companies that do it, mainly because they want to help other companys. They arn't goning to one day think up this great idea and go "Oh wait, we need to partner with Generic Studios to make this game"
Your idea sounds pretty dodgy too.
