Question Corner #7 – 5/23/2016

Question Corner #7 – 5/23/2016

Hello everybody, SlimKirby here! Getting ready for Momocon, but I have gotten quite a few questions since my last post, so before I leave for a week, I figured I would get another one of these posted before I head out.

As usual, make sure you continue to follow the guidelines for these questions if you would like to submit a question yourself. Don’t ask anything too personal or anything inappropriate, and try to avoid asking very simple questions like “Have you played this game?” or “What do you think of this game?” because those will generally lead to very short and uninteresting answers. If you would like to submit a question yourself, go to the Contact page.

Q: “Who would be your dream date, regardless of occupation, fame, religion, race, etc?”
A: I’m honestly not extremely picky when it comes to that kind of stuff, as long as it is someone who can make me smile, laugh and accept me for who I am. Do certain qualities resonate with me better than others? Sure, I’m not saying I don’t have a type, but I’m not going to limit myself to those qualities if there is someone who I find I care deeply for. They don’t even have to be a gamer, although it would be nice to play a game or two of Mario Party every now and then! But I think it is important that we share a lot of the same hobbies and interests, and even if we don’t as long as we can at least talk about them together and encourage each other in exploring our own passions further. I know that doesn’t really answer the question of a “dream date” and is more about “finding your perfect partner,” but again, it’s not something I put a whole lot of thought into. I’m not just going to date someone because she’s popular for being on some tv show. I’d be more interested in their personal endeavors outside of that, if that makes sense.

Q: “What are your opinion of the Dorkly video game animation shorts?”
A: I think they are fine. Some of them are funny while others have….incredibly obvious humor that you can see from a mile away. It’s not something I will keep up with, but if I see one that interests me out of the corner of my eye, I’ll probably check it out.

Q: “Would you like to see a second Donkey Kong 64 game?”
A: Yeah, I think DK should give the 3D platforming realm another go. I honestly do really love Donkey Kong 64, even though it does go a little far on collectibles and is kind of slow-paced compared to other 3D platformers of its time (Banjo Kazooie and Super Mario 64). But the game itself is still extremely solid and is a game I go back to every now and then for a good gold-banana hunting time!

Q: “What is your favorite breed of dog?”
A: I’ve always been fond of german shepherds and labs. Lately though, I’ve been unable to get over how freaking cute huskies are (thanks to PokemonCheese and WolfofStorms for that constant reminder).

Q: “What kind of car do you own?”
A: I own a 2000s (don’t know the exact year) Buick Century. It’s a really comfortable car and I enjoy driving it. I just wish my right windshield wiper would stop screwing up…..

Q: “If you were given a chance to partner up with a larger Youtuber, who would you choose and why?”
A: It would actually be really cool to partner up with Chuggaaconroy sometime. Regardless of our past, I have so much respect for the work he does on Youtube and given the right game and circumstance, I think it would be a fun time. I would also love to partner up with somecallmejohnny as well because not only is he my favorite Youtuber, I just have a lot of respect for him as a reviewer and I have so much fun watching his videos (and any video he is included in).

Q: “What do you think of Youtube’s big announcement in regards to Content ID claims?”
A: I think it is a very good start, but the endgame could still use some improvements. The system has been definitely broken for years, largely due to the fact that it’s an automated system, and despite the fact that I’m aware that it is quite a lot to ask of Youtube to manage all of these claims individually, there are just some things you can’t leave in the hands of automation, and this is one of them. I’m very much in favor of the belief that Let’s Plays fall under the category of Fair Use, especially considering how personal a game experience can be, so no matter how many times you watch a video or a project, it’s never going to replace the experience of playing the game yourself, so companies like Nintnedo shouldn’t be able to copyright that experience. However, the fact is that they can, and the way the system is now, using the very sound logic of fair use won’t ever work because these companies know they can very easily use the automated system to enforce their wants. It is nice that you can still receive full monetary compensation while disputing a claim, but my worry now is that Nintendo (or other companies) will start counter disputing immediately so this process becomes pointless. So it’s a temporary solution for the automated system, but it doesn’t fix the problem of the system being automated, if that makes sense.

Q: “Which LP is your biggest failure and what did you learn from it?”
A: I don’t think any of my projects are failures necessarily. It all comes down to perspective really, and while there are projects I didn’t really care for, looking back, we all have to start somewhere, and as you said, you can easily learn from your mistakes, ultimately making you better at it in the long run. I think one of my biggest flub-ups was my first playthrough of Kirby’s Dream Land 3, where I played through the game blind, recorded it blind, but then did post-commentary over the blind footage. I don’t feel like that’s a great thing to do, because one of the biggest reasons why people watch blind playthroughs are the initial reactions to certain things in the game. And because I was doing commentary over the footage, I had to fake my reactions to certain things which just made the instances awkward. I’m very glad I redid that game at a future date and time because I think the redone playthrough was so much better. If I had to go with projects that were ultimately failures, leading to me not to finish them or go along with them further, I’d probably have to go with Terraria when I tried to do a Let’s Play of that game. Two episodes in, and I was already regretting the idea because I was taking on too much for a game that requires constant attention, and a game I play in very specific, random instances of time, where I play for like 3 days and don’t want to play it anymore.

Q: “What is your opinion of Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon in comparison to the first game?”
A: I think Dark Moon was honestly a very good game, but it definitely lacks something in comparison to the first game and I don’t necessarily know what. For starters, I think the Gamecube controller was the best controller to complement the gameplay style of the first Luigi’s Mansion and while I wouldn’t say the 3DS controls are bad (they aren’t), but sometimes, even the smallest change in control and design can make you yearn for the earlier days. But alas…I thought Dark Moon had some really great ideas that worked for the type of game it was. I just wish it had a larger impression on me, because it did lack in that area.

Q: “Do you wish you had siblings?”
A: I do, yes. While there are definitely perks to being an only child, I was definitely lonely a lot when I was kid, being very dependent on friends coming over for my social interaction.

Q: “Why no SlimKirby Sings videos anymore?”
A: I have not cancelled SlimKirby Sings….I just have not had any good ideas for songs lately. As soon as I come up with something that I feel is good enough, I’ll post one.

Q: “What are your favorite and least favorite portrait ghosts in Luigi’s Mansion?”
A: Favorite ghost is Slim Bankshot because of the name. I also like Vincent Van Gore and and Uncle Grimmly. Least favorite portait ghosts are probably Sir Weston and Jarvis.

Q: “What do you enjoy about Golf?”
A: There are three things I enjoy about golf. For one, I enjoy the peace and quiet because it allows me time alone with my thoughts without any interruptions. Two, I enjoy the mind game aspect of Golf, about how you have to analyze your shot, pick the right club and judge the terrain around you. Three, I like it because it’s a sport that anyone can pick up and play very easily.

Q: “What are your thoughts on newest Fire Emblem games (Awakening and Fates)?”
A: I think they are very solid titles. Awakening was a really good game and it kind of put Fire Emblem back on the map again. Plus, I really enjoyed the way they handled supports and integrated them even more into the game. Fates was all right. Definitely far from a bad game, but it definitely made some interesting choices and introduced some very bizarre (but not in a bad way) mechanics.

Q: “Who are your non-Let’s Player inspirations?”
A: Since he is more of a reviewer than a Let’s Player, can I still say somecallmejohnny? Haha, nah, I’ll try to stick to non-Youtuber answers for this one. Two of my inspirations, who have both passed away very recently, are Satoru Iwata and David Bowie. The former has worked on some of the most amazing video games of all time, and the latter has given me so much music I listen to on a regular basis. As for an alive inspiration, I also draw a lot of inspiration from my mom who is such a hard worker and has given me all that I ever needed to succeed in being the type of person I want to be!

Q: “What’s the loveliest thing you’ve done for your parents wedding anniversary?”
A: I don’t think I’ve done anything for them for their anniversary, as I feel that is mostly their day to spend how they desire and is not really something I should have an impact on. I suppose you could say my greatest gift to them is the gift that keeps on giving, by showing them that their son turned out all right as I try to continue to succeed in my endeavors through life. I do feel my successes are a reflection of the parental enforcement they’ve given me, after all.

Q: “Is there any Nintendo series you haven’t played?”
A: I have not played any of the Chibi Robo games, Custom Robo, or any of those other one-off Nintendo titles that are usually Japan Only.

Q: “What’s your take on DS and GBA games on the Wii U eshop instead of Gamecube games?”
A: While I do like the inclusion of DS and GBA games on the Wii U, I think it is kind of ridiculous that Gamecube is not supported in any way, shape or form. It’s like the only console not supported and I don’t think there is any logical reason for why it isn’t. Given, I don’t work on the hardware, so I can’t know for sure, but I’m sure they’d be able to find some sort of workaround by this point.

Q: “What do you think about the difficulty of some of the Hyrule Warriors Adventure Mode maps?”
A: I think it’s kind of dumb that some enemies hit as hard as they do. Seriously, some enemies hit, and then an entire row of your hearts are gone and I think that’s stupid. It’s fine for those “Devastating Attack” missions, where everything dies in one hit, but doing normal battles in that fashion is really annoying and often leads to SEVERAL restarts. I’m not a fan of that….

Q: “What is your opinion of what Nintendo plans to do at E3 this year?”
A: I think it’s incredibly dumb and it shows that Nintendo has lost touch with what their consumers want. Consumers want to see more games, they want to see what this NX is all about, and they want an actual press conference, but from the sounds of it, they aren’t delivering on any of those promises. It’s great they are showing off the new Zelda, but I do not think Zelda will solve all of their current problems. Nintendo customers are scared because they don’t know what to expect now, after already being concerned about the Wii U’s poor performance in the last year, and they aren’t giving them any confidence that everything will be ok. They really need to re-evaluate what they are doing and get in touch with what their consumers want, otherwise, they will be losing a lot of support.

That’s 20 questions, but, I’ll answer one more because it’s related to the last question and it’s a question that has been bugging me lately.

Q: “What are your thoughts on the new Zelda being delayed AGAIN? Also, talk about why this is an insult to all Zelda fans everywhere”
A: It’s not. Do your research. Nearly all console Zelda games are delayed at some point and are usually delayed for good reason. All Zelda titles are of pretty high quality caliber, even games that I’m personally not the biggest fans of (Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword are not some of my favorites, but that’s mostly personal preference. They are still solid games in their own right), and that’s because they don’t release the game the first chance they get. They wait until they have a high quality game on their hands, THEN they release it. That’s the way it has been since Ocarina of Time, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, Skyward Sword……PRETTY MUCH EVERY ZELDA GAME! It was not surprising at all to see a delay for Zelda U, much like how it’s not surprising to see animals at a petting zoo. Case closed!

Yeah, I posted that last one because I was getting tired of seeing people complain about the game being delayed when it’s not that uncommon at all for a Zelda game to be delayed, and people should know this by now that it is usually for the best. Anyway, that will be it for the questions this time around. Don’t expect the next issue to be up right away, especially since I will be on vacation for the next week, but also to give me some time to get back into the swing of things with all of my projects and Let’s Plays. I hope you enjoyed my answers though and I’ll see you next time!

Question Corner #6 – 5/4/2016

Question Corner #6 – 5/4/2016

Hello everybody and good evening! It is time for another Question Corner update! Once again I have reached the 20 (ACCEPTABLE) question threshold, which means another update will be posted. It’s been almost 2 months since the last one, but again, I need to stress that it is only because I wasn’t getting enough questions that were acceptable for the next issue to be posted. I use the word “acceptable” very strictly, because once again, some twerp thought it was funny to ask a bunch of stupid questions that were not appropriate for the issue, and then complained about the next issue not being up, blaming my laziness instead of his inability to read the rules, and then proceeded to deny any existence of my heterosexuality, which…..I don’t even see how that’s relevant to begin with, lol.

Oh well, it’s a shame for him that his comments don’t really insult me. If anything, the only individuals he is insulting is the human race in general by sharing the same existence with them. But oh well…fools will be fools. Let’s get to the questions…

…after one quick reminder that if you would like to submit a question of your own, please do so via the Contact form. Just make sure your question is appropriate and if at all possible, try to avoid questions like “Will you Let’s Play this game?” or questions that just in general will yield a very small response (so in other words, “Do you like eating chocolate?” will probably not be yielding too much of an answer compared to “What are your favorite types of dessert items?” just to give an example).

Q: “What’s your opinion of the Final Fantasy series?”
A: Despite only playing completely (and loving) Final Fantasy VII, I think it’s a great series that is doing very well for itself. I’ve seen a few Final Fantasy games and I’ve also taken a few steps into Final Fantasy I as well, and I do like what I see/play, but I’ve never been able to take more steps into actually finishing the games. I need to get back into that because I would love to get more into this series and see more what it has to offer.

Q: “What do you want to see in Mario Party 11?”
A: A complete shift back to the way Mario Party games used to be like. Better side games and side modes. Online play! The traditional style of Mario Party being the main focus! It’s that simple NDCube!

Q: “Would you like to see another game like Super Princess Peach?”
A: Super Princess Peach actually looked pretty entertaining and interesting for what the game is, and I would like to see more experimental platformers like that. They don’t necessarily have to have Peach as the main character, but the style of game it is was pretty interesting for it’s time and I’d like to see more of that.

Q: “Do you have any idea when you will take your first steps into LPing Grand Theft Auto games?”
A: I would really like to, because as I’ve stated multiple times, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City may be one of my favorite games of all-time, or at the absolute least, my favorite PS2 game. I dunno though…the timing has just never felt right for doing those games. I have GTA III, Vice City, San Andreas, Vice City Stories and GTA IV, so I have a number of titles to do…I just don’t know where exactly to begin or when. I’m sure I’ll get to it at some point though.

Q: “Are there any games you want a sequel to (aside from Hit & Run)?”
A: After thinking long and hard about this…the only game I can really think of is Kirby’s Air Ride. I thought the Air Ride mode (alongside City Trial) had a great formula to start with and it would be cool to see another game like it again.

Q: “Why does it say you joined Youtube in 2006 when you declare 2007 as your Youtube start?”
A: That’s pretty simple…I created a Youtube account in 2006 for watching videos and in 2007 I decided to start actually making videos. It seems like a simple answer for this question, opposed to the more complicated “a rip in the space time continuum happened” answer you were probably looking for, but I do get this question a lot and understandably so. It does say I started in 2006, and I always say otherwise that it was 2007. In terms of creating videos, 2007 is the only answer I will care about.

Q: “What did you think about the Kirby’s Dream Collection for the Nintendo Wii”
A: I actually thought it was a really sweet collection. Dream Land 1, 2, 3, Adventure, Super Star AND Kirby 64 for retail price? That’s a pretty sweet deal and I love the music CD that came with it as well. I think it would have been cool to include some other non-platforming games as well (like Avalanche and Dream Course), but I suppose you can’t be too picky about it.

Q: “Since you talk a lot about it, what is your history with Asperger’s Syndrome?”
A: I am not an Aspie myself, but I have a lot of friends who are and they are honestly some of the most intelligent, down to earth and wonderful people I have ever met. MegaFreak400, who was like one of my closest friends from the CrystalStarStudio group, is an Aspie and he is one of my favorite people to talk to just because I really value his opinion and he is someone who I feel like I can have a legitimate argument and discussion with, without feeling like I need to punch him afterwards. He was just someone who I really connected with. FiyahKitteh, who I dated for a few years, was also on the Aspergers spectrum and she is someone whom I really admire in wisdom, creativity and spirit, and still do to this day. After all of these meetings, and hearing stories from my parents and other family members, who do a lot of work with kids in their schools that also have Aspergers, I’ve just grown kind of an understanding and respect for those who have it because they are so misunderstood and they get treated like they are freaks, when in reality, are just like everyone else, just with slightly different reactions and interactions.

Q: “What would you love to see in a 3rd Banjo Kazooie game if they ever made one?”
A: They did make one…it’s called Nuts & Bolts. Now, since I just insulted every Banjo-Kazooie fan by saying that, please allow me to explain. I’m only teasing you because of the way you asked your question, because like it or not, another big-time Banjo Kazooie game was made after the original duology on the N64. It’s definitely not the game everyone wanted, and I’d say it’s a Banjo game in the same way that Kirby’s Epic Yarn is a Kirby game. It does have Kirby as the main character, but it’s quite obvious that he was creatively crafted into a game that was already a developed idea. As far as Nuts and Bolts goes, Rare was working on this idea and people wanted Banjo, so they included Banjo into the idea. That’s more than likely what happened anyway. Obviously I don’t work for Rare so I can’t confirm, but that seems to be the most likely scenario. Also, don’t forget about the Game Boy Advance Banjo game either. That game was a pretty neat distraction considering. Anyway, as for a new “true” Banjo game, I would be very interested to see a return to the classic style of game that made Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie what it is; a collect-a-thon platformer with cool moves, items, quirky characters, fun minigames and challenges. Really, I don’t think it’s too much to ask for Rare to go back to their Banjo roots.

Q: “Are there any companies that have the potential to bring Mario Party back to its roots?”
A: Honestly, and this is what really kills me, I think NdCube is more than capable of making a good classic Mario Party game, but they are so incredibly stuck on this mindset that the series is fine the way it is. And honestly, it’s not! They’ve shown that they are capable of making good minigames, and there are visions of a good board mode in Amiibo Party (as basic and bare bones and boring as it is), but they are just not putting two and two together, nor are they listening to their fans either. They literally have no consumer research department and that is a problem they could so easily remedy. It’s so frustrating!

Q: “Have you thought about doing other Top 10s?”
A: The questioner asked in regards to Simpsons episodes, but I’ll make the question a bit more general. Yeah, I have thought about doing other Top 10s, and for something like The Simpsons, which I have a great fondness for, topics of that nature are pretty likely to get covered in some way. My only problem is that making a list video does take a lot of time and a lot of work. Sometimes even moreso than an actual Let’s Play episode. You need to record footage, write narration, record narration, listen to narration over and over again, put it all together and watch through it multiple times to make sure it’s right. There’s a lot of stuff that’s required for a Top 10. I seriously don’t know how rabbidluigi does a list every week on his channel. But yeah, I have thought about some things and if I get some time, maybe I’ll try my hand at it! I know one topic I was considering at one point was a Top 10 favorite Donkey Kong Country levels video.

Q: “What is your opinion of the Grand Theft Auto series?”
A: I love the Grand Theft Auto series. Now, before people assume it’s because it’s the violence, committing crimes and sleeping with prostitutes side of GTA…you’re wrong! What I love is the sandbox atmosphere of the series. The fact that you are given a city to just explore and do what you want. You can play through the story, you can play fun minigames and side missions, or you can just go crazy, buy a bunch of weapons and cause havoc in town if you wanted to. The world is quite literally your oyster, and depending on what game you are playing, you have a lot of different options as well. Hell, even just doing the taxi missions while listening to the radio can be fun. It’s such a great series and why I love sandbox-style games.

Q: “What are your expectations of Nintendo’s E3 for this year and the NX?”
A: Honestly, I don’t have any expectations, but I feel like going into an E3 conference with expectations only means you will have expectations to potentially lose. While, if you go into a conference not expecting anything, you have the possibility of being completely swept off your feet, which is something I want to happen during an E3 conference. Honestly though, I would love for Nintendo to have a conference that would blow everything out of the water because right now, I feel like Nintendo desperately needs it. Not that I think Nintendo is doing bad, persay. I do enjoy the games Nintendo has been putting out and overall, the Wii U has given me more enjoyment than lack of enjoyment. I just feel like public opinion with Nintendo is already on pretty shaky ground and it needs to do something to get the faith back. I also think the NX reveal/announcement needs to be done right because that could be another deal maker or breaker for Nintendo. What would I love to see? Well, I would love to see a new Mario game, potentially a 3D Mario game.

Q: “What did you make of the death of Satoru Iwata?”
A: I was incredibly sad by the passing of Mr. Iwata. He’s been involved in so many games I’ve played and cherished from my childhood days and it’s sad to know that such a great man will no longer be involved in Nintendo Directs, conferences or game development anymore. However, one thing we must remember is that his spirit lives on in the games he has made for us, and we will never forget those gifts he had a hand in making for us gamers!

Q: “With your name being ‘Robert,’ what name do you generally go by or prefer going by (Robert, Rob, Bob, Robbie)?
A: I prefer Rob. It’s short and to the point, just the way I like it. For official stuff, like signing documents, or when I was turning in homework assignments during my college days, I use Robert because it feels more official and appropriate. I used to go by Robbie when I was younger, but I don’t really like that version of my name anymore. As far as “Bob” is concerned, that’s what we called my grandfather (shared the same name), so I try to avoid that name out of respect. My father is also named Robert, but my family just calls him by his middle name anyway.

Q: “What was your opinion of The Simpsons Game playthrough that you did a few years ago?”
A: I thought it was fine. Honestly though, I am a little bitter about that playthrough due to the fact that the Wii version (the version I played) had an inferior amount of content compared to the Xbox360 and PS3 versions, which is really dumb. May want to redo that playthrough sometime in the future, but not anytime soon.

Q: “What would be your dream vacation?”
A: Honestly, the best kind of vacations are when they are with my lovely online friends of the PuddlePlainsHD community and other good online friends. I always have a blast at Magfest whenever I go to it and it would be cool to have a longer period of time to hang out with the people I adore. We really should consider doing a get-together sometime when a convention isn’t going on just to see what it’s like. Honestly, doesn’t even matter where we go, as long as there is a place where Odinspack and I can go hit the gym and some nice relaxing time where we can sit back and game the night away!

Q: “What are your favorite animals?”
A: My favorite animal would probably be a penguin. They are very adaptable to cold weather, much like I am, and they always waddle around like I do. I also like lions, wolves and foxes.

Q: “If you only had 12 months to live, what would you try to accomplish?”
A: I would probably spend the first month relaxing and trying to come to terms with the time I have left, figuring out what things I would like to do before I leave. And then just trying to spend the rest of my time doing stuff I either really love or things I have always wanted to do. I don’t necessarily want to go into any major details, because that’s a very personal topic for me, but yeah, just making the most of what I have left. Would also try to visit people who I have always wanted to meet but never had a chance to.

Q: “Who designed the banner on your website?”
A: That was actually designed by me with help from FiyahKitteh. Her instruction with Photoshop is what allowed me to create that, but aside from the instruction, it was all done by my hand.

Kirby’s Return to Dream Land

Kirby's Return to Dream Land

Game: Kirby’s Return to Dream Land
Start Date: April 26th, 2016
Videos: 21

Remember when Kirby GCN was a thing for the longest time? Then once the Gamecube era ended and Kirby’s Epic Yarn was the first Kirby platformer since Kirby 64, people wondered whatever the hell happened to that Kirby game we were promised? However, when Return to Dream Land came out, all questions were answered as people flocked to another one of the Wii’s awesome platforming titles. This time with multiplayer posibilities, interesting motion controlled minigames, brand new copy power-ups and a whole lot more.

I think it is safe to say that Return to Dream Land was in the works for a really long time on my channel. However, the timing never felt just right for it until this year when I needed a project to go alongside what was left of the Sacred Stones postgame. So Kirby, you ready for another round of fun in Dream Land?
