90sRetroGaming commented on Rare Donkey Kong Delights to Grace the Wii U a...:

Oh man... I'm buying four $10.00 eShop cards today or tomorrow in preparation of this coming over to the US, hopefully. If they do, I'm buying ALL six games! Definitely not going to miss out like I did the first time! Better safe than sorry! ;)



90sRetroGaming commented on Nintendo Confirms Week Two Details for Super S...:

MAYBE F-Zero and Mega Man X2. I can't do Minish Cap on Wii U VC.

I already own it on my 3DS as part of the Ambassador Program and I don't think it's fair that you would need to buy it again, just to get it on the Wii U.

It's 2014, almost 2015.. They really need to start offering cross-buy. Both the 3DS and Wii U share the same NNID, so there's really no excuse for this.



90sRetroGaming commented on System Update 8.1.0-19 Now Available on 3DS:

Yo dawgs, has anyone made an Xzibit Gif on the 3DS's stability yet? I need you to make me a stable Gif on more stability so that I may add more stability to your stables. It'll please the horses.. belive me... it will! ;)



90sRetroGaming commented on Mario Kart 8 Update & DLC Scheduled for 27th A...:

Great update and it's a start in the right direction to improve the game ever further! :). As far as what else I'd like to see added at the end of the day? Here it goes:

8 new race courses
8 retro race courses
8 new battle arenas
8 retro battle arenas

If they don't want to have to go through the route of having to make "New" race courses then I'd be fine with 16 updated retro race courses, since the original maps already exist in their vault.


Petey Piranha
Diddy Kong
Bowser Jr.
King Boo (Luigi's Mansion appearance)
Funky Kong
Dry Bones
Dry Bowser
Honey Queen
Dixie Kong
Cranky Kong
Hammer Bro.
E. Gadd
Sprixie Princess

Option to play the original versions of the retro courses instead of the mandatory remixes made specifically for this installment of Mario Kart.

I honestly cannot stand what they have done to N64 Toad's Turnpike, N64 Rainbow Road and 3DS Music Park... All three lost their charm, IMO. Sound effects having been lowered, flattened and missing WAY too much of it's original amazing bass.

Sound Test:

Can play the entire soundtrack to the game at anytime.

Optional "Item Spy" on the TV screen (on the left side, similar to Mario Kart 64)

That's pretty much all I would want to see at the end of the day. I don't really have anything else at the moment...



90sRetroGaming commented on Majora's Mask Fan Project Gets a New Trailer, ...:

Wow... a couple fans who actually care and are putting in actual effort to see that Majora's Mask HD/3D see's the light of day. Seems they actually care a lot more than Nintendo does at this point. They definitely have my full support on this one.



90sRetroGaming commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

Can't Nintendo afford to at least buy back all the old Rare IP's from Microsoft, if not the actual name? They're just begging to be revived on the 3DS and Wii U.

Mario Kart 8 launched not even two months ago and I'm already ready for Diddy Kong Racing 2, including the old Rare characters.

That and Donkey Kong Country 1-3 all removed from the Wii Shop Channel, with probably no chance of them ending up on the 3DS and Wii U eShops...




90sRetroGaming commented on Review: Wii Sports Club (Wii U):

Bought the Tennis Club Pass in November from Gamestop for $4.99 and then completed the digital version buying the remaining three Club Passes two weeks back directly from the eShop for $29.97.

Factoring the 20% off eShop cards from Best Buy and the 10% back from the Deluxe Digital Promotion, the complete digital version cost me around $25 + tax. Decent deal.

Had I not bought the Tennis Club Pass last year I probably would have bought the physical version of Sports Club. I'm happy with my digital version, though.

They DO need to update and patch the issues with Boxing, though. Motions aren't registering correctly for whatever weird reason...



90sRetroGaming commented on Launch Sales of Mario Kart 8 Outperform Mario ...:

Not surprised in the least. The game is amazing. Much better than MK7, IMO. Now.. a huge DLC season pass please with lots of missing veterans, more new comers, two-four more retro cups and 10+ actual battle arenas, split between new and old and I'm all set! ;)



90sRetroGaming commented on Digital Foundry Pins Down Mario Kart 8's Resol...:

@memoryman3 I have a decent amount of 720p games between my WIi U and PS3 and they all look stunning.

Granted I sit around 6-8 feet away from my HDTV but, I still don't notice any difference, if at all, tbh.

Now.. when I'm like two or three inches away from the screen I start noticing some jaggies.. in both 720p AND 1080p.. not one or the other.



90sRetroGaming commented on Digital Foundry Pins Down Mario Kart 8's Resol...:

Doesn't matter to me. I'm rocking a 32" Sharp 1080p HDTV, so I doubt I would notice the difference between 720p and 1080p anyway. I guess once you hit over the 40" mark then you may notice the difference.

And it's not like the game (in 1-2 player mode) is 30fps. I'm not going to care if it drops to 59fps, lol. Doubt I would notice it. Now if it were 30fps in 1-2 mode... yeah...

720p... It's still HD... I'll take that over SD any day. 59fps... still beats 30fps any day as well =)



90sRetroGaming commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Unboxes The Mario Kart ...:


The refurbished units are factory reset out of the box. It will work the same as any other new Wii U. If you're going for the digital version you need to link your Club Nintendo account first, prior to downloading Mario Kart 8.

"If you buy the game from Nintendo eShop, link your Wii U console to your Club Nintendo account prior to buying the game to qualify for this offer"

Same deal when I bought my Wind Waker HD Deluxe Set brand new. Right after my initial set up of the console I went right into the eShop and linked my Club Nintendo to it before anything else.

Right after that I redeemed my download code for Wind Waker HD, downloaded it and I received a total of 90 Club Nintendo coins within a few hours i believe.

Just make sure it's linked first and you're all set! :)

I already have the Wind Waker HD Deluxe Set. I hope they sell that red and blue Wii Wheel outside of this particular Deluxe set.

And at least you can buy that Mario themed Wii Remote as a stand alone product.

I'm loving that box art too! If I didn't already own the Wind Waker set I'd be all over this one! LOL. Awsome package! ^_^
