3Daniel commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

haha. I've been playing around with this app all weekend and didn't even realize there was Miiverse integration. I tend to skip Miiverse on the handheld as its way to slow and clunky compared to Wii U and the mobile internet version.

3Daniel commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

@piojito_O I love Toon Link and have always enjoyed the style. I never understood the hate during Wind Waker's reveal. Personally I find the ALbW design to be far too generic so I'm pleased they stuck with Toon. I find Link's moveset to be better suited to the speed increase with the shorter Links. "Normal" Link needs more weight and more power. The Gale Boomerang was useless in Brawl so hopefully there will be more of a push and pull this time around. If not, he would benefit from some sort of a stun attack because I find his smash attacks too slow and weak.

I've always had trouble utilizing Marth in Smash so I like Lucina as a clone. However I hope she has an alt Masked version. I'm still holding out for Isaac as his synergy could differentiate himself from Robin. If not Isaac than his son from Dusk so there's no Japanese name confusion. I think a vehicle based character like Excitebike racer would be awesome. Marlo from Pushmo or Layton would be nice or at least a Pushmo stage. Nintendo has a great selection of puzzlers that have yet to be represented in a Smash title.

I think Chrom will be an alt skin for Lucina. They share the same sword in the screenshots but Robin's final smash looks to use him. Oh well. Lucina should have been a Marth skin. I love Fire Emblem but with the character choices you wouldn't think the series had lances, spears, axes, hammers, bows, hatchets, rapiers, or javelins etc. Robin at least breaks the mold with tomes.

3Daniel commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

I'm going to guess it'll be a character coinciding with a surprise announcement for an upcoming wii u title. Something has to give with this new countdown approach. Perhaps F-Zero U and Captain Falcon! Hyrule Warriors launches in Japan soon so maybe Ganondorf.

also as an intelligent mature and free thinking individual i have no issue with tossing shells and sliding around banana peels while karting in a mercedes. i actually want this dlc. if for nothing else then my own amusement. for those that take a spin with this dlc and then rush out to buy a luxury vehicle because mario "told" them is their business. ;)

the fact that after mk8 theres really nothing outside of indies on the eshop or wiisports to look foward till september/october isnt going to help the momentum. in fact i predict most people who havent made the jump to the system will once again forget its existence. even if E3 was great. maybe I'm just bitter that Nintendo cluttered all the titles I wanted into a 2 month span and is forcibg me to pick and choose which to get, which to wait and which to forget.

this game along with many others Nintendo has shown gives me great joy in knowing that HD gaming can be colorful and not just brown yet still give a feel for realism. of the arts and craft variety with woolly world.

@MinecraftGreek id love for them too but considering how long its taken for them to finally give an official mario editor i douvt it. tho if this is a huge success and doesnt cut into future mario title sales than i dont see why they wouldnt. tho even just looking at whats been shown i can definately see some dedicated players recreating other methods of gameplay. like recreating zelda dungeons but with mario style of play.

3Daniel commented on Mario Maker to Include Additional Graphical St...:

im assuming each map must have a flagpole and that the player must reach said flagpole in order to be able to complete the level and upload it. so while the graphics may differ, if say you can use a link or samus character instead of mario, the design itself will stay true to mario. i.e. you move left to right and finish when you reach the flagpole. mariovsdonkey kong minismarchagain is most likely the template for how editing and sharing will work. tho uldated of course to feature miiverse if possible.

i thought nintendo's e3 made owning a wii u this holiday season essential. as october thru all of 2015 looks great. the games look great! but for those who already own a wii u it looks like another drought is upon us in EU and US. mario maker would have been a fantastic summer release. hopefully mario kart dlc comes out soon as battle mode is already a chore slogging thru the same tracks you race on.

3Daniel commented on Pikmin 3 Update Adds New Stylus Control Style:

FINALLY. i was so perplexed by the ability to play on the gamepad but requiring the use of a wiimote and nunchuck to do so or the wonky control stick scheme this makes me BEYOND happy and now i have a reason to replay it!

i tried the demo at gamestop and the game was weird. it reminded me of super circuit in terms of the characters placement on the screen. the way the camera placement was was a little off putting. i also didnt care for the way the gamepad felt while playing but it was locked in a horizontal position where i tend to play games with the controller in a vertical position. i think im going to hav to pick up a wii u pro for this since smash is out in winter.

nintendo is far too mixed in their way of presenting the gamepad. i for one love it and the myriad controllers. sometimes i like to play soley on the gamepad, even in wii mode, and i love being able to switch over to a wiimote/nunchuck or pro/pro u when needed. my biggest complaint is nintendo seems to be oblivious to the obvious. why not 5 player mario kart with the gamepad serving as a screen or even 1 player using full tv and 1 on gamepad? if the system itself isnt capable of this then the system wasnt thought out fully from the get go and nintendo jumped the shark. theres potential in the pad and i have yet to witness a better use of it then zombi u which launched 2 years ago!

3Daniel commented on Western Markets Vital For Nintendo Hardware Sa...:

they simply need games. we havent heard of anything coming after mk8 for wii u other then vague 2014 placeholders. its hard to recommend the wii u when it essentially serves as a $300 emulator of overpeiced NES games. at least release a game that makes full use of the gamepad that doesnt feel like an overinflated tech demo. i love the wii u but its severely lacking in variety when it comes to software other then halfbaked ports and sporadic mario titles. unless nintendo is going to surprise us at e3 with near releases of some major titles i am expecting another drought in the summer and if that is the case it will be the nail in the coffin of my 20 year plus relationship with nintendo home consoles.

@NickieBoy i got in trouble with nintendo for trying to give away my pokemon y code when i upgraded to 3dsxl. being this is also a club nintendo promotion im assuming itll have similar rules in place. i already had pokemon x digital on my 3ds and when i transfered it over to the xl i didnt see the need to own y as a digital on the same machine. the person i gav it to wasnt able to download as his 3ds was tied to his own club nintendo. use caution is as my own experience with these nintendo promotions indicated to me that these free codes are not technically ours and therefore we cant giv it away.

this happened like 3 weeks ago.

figures i own the NA selection. was hoping game & wario would make the cut. but this is my own fault for day one-ing everything. and to whoever asked about selling the download code you cant as its tied to the console of your club nintendo account.

3Daniel commented on GameStop Plans to Close Around 120 Stores in t...:

i actually prefer gamestop for used game purchases. unlike best buy, gamestop actually guarantees their used games. i purchased metroid other m used from best buy 2 years ago, i returned an hour after purchase because the disc didnt work which happens sometimes when they clean the disc for redistribution. not only was i met with hostility at best buy, being told i was in violation of licensing laws or some nonsense and that there was nothing they could do for me so i spoke with several managers and even best buy on social media and finally after 3 months was told i would be sent another used copy. that was 2 years ago and im still waiting. every now and then ill run into the district manager at wawa and he never makes eye contact with me. i dont consider myself the greatest best buy customer but as someone who spents thousands every year there for a almost a decade its foolish they lost a customer over a 10$ faulty used game.

where as at gamestop i can return the game within a week for store credit, easy replacement or whatever with little to no hassle.

also i love other m. dont hate. lol

depends on what the importance of marriage is in the game. i know that sounds stupid but if it plays a large role it would cause a disconnect for myself. considering these types of games rely on the avatar being "you" i'd rather stick with animal crossing. if marriage is a minor role then i may pick this up but i'm currently playing thru several titles i missed out on last year including dream team and wonderful 101 and kirby and mario kart 8 are due soon.

3Daniel commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I find the graphicsto be breathtaking with the 3d on. While they do basically limit to forground background its definately more then 2 layers as various background elements have various depths as well. Even the smudges that filter over most of the environments and characters gives off a neat layering effect. This game is absolutely ugly everywhere else but is beautiful on the 3ds. I also love the unexpected color pallets used and the combinations of assests are visually striking. Granted the bosses are weak odd and some innapropriately shaped, big beanie! And its definately not the masterpiece the original is imo. Beware the Boo Brigade! >_<

While Nintendo isnt doing the Wii U any favors, theyve completely lost a customer in their next console. Drought after drought. I bought the Wii U to play games. And I use it mainly for youtube. I will no longer purchase another Nintendo console until well into its lifespan so Ill have a decent selection of titles to play. My wallet is literally begging to spend on something other then another 2dpost platformer or lego title lol

3Daniel commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

i liked it but i agree with everyone else who is wondering why we'll have ANOTHER wii u draught on our hands. i'm passing on dk. so from nov of 2013 to may of 2014 i have no new content to play on the console. aside from a gba vc release or 2 and nes remix 2. i thought they would touch on discounts or whatever they referred to for their loyal fans. as someone whos filled up their 3ds's 16gb sd card and a nice chunk of my 500gb external harddrive for wii u i was interested to know whats what. ppl may not be flocking to the wii u but i love the machine and my wallet is BEGGING to be opened!

3Daniel commented on Sonic Lost World Sales Reached 640,000 in 2013:

I love lost worlds and im a little saddened that boom wont be expanding on the tubular level design. The wii u vers was fantastic, i only played the 3ds demo and didnt care for that vers, but the story and the sinister six were lackluster. The biggest downfall with lost worlds for me were the shoehorning of the wisp power ups and some of the onrails 2d stages later in the game requiring perfect timing tho they remedied that with the 100 rings equate a 1up patch.

By far my fav vers of SMB and if it comes to US ill def get even tho i have ambassador smb for nes on my 3ds. The smaller field of view never bothered me, the ability to scroll the screen gave an adventure/slower pace to the game. And this is by far my favorite speed run version of the game if you just charge straight ahead thru all levels blindly jumping at points.

@paburrows its a much better service now as more shows are supported as opposed to the first 8 months of the wii us launch but its still not a defining feature that people should feel left out of for not having. Youd actually be better off just schedulibg with other mii users to comment on a specific miiverse post then wasting your time with this app.

3Daniel commented on Nintendo Is Sorry That The Wii U's TVii Servic...:

Its not that great if a service actually. During the course of a program you're not given a chatroom for an overall episode. You're able to comment on chapters as an episode plays but these are very laggy and don't seem to be synched with the episode. Ive used it twice and the first time i attemptedthe episode i was watching lacked a tviitag and the app was useless. Its a great concept but its poorly executed. Im not a sports guy tho so i cant comment on that.

Not that i should admit this but i met someone on draw something while randomly paired and we ended up dating for a year. And i mean real world dating too. They ended up leaving me to move to deadhorse alaska for work and i wouldnt uproot my life on the east coast for them. True story. Lol

Honestly i hope the wii u doesnt sell too well and more third parties abandon ship. I love when Nintendo takes the reigs entirely and fills those genres that other parties left behind. The gamecube had my second favorite software lineup, next to dreamcast, because nintendo was super experimental and delivered on the goods. If the wii u fails to sell another single console it wont be the end of nintendo so it wouldn't matter anyway.
