9th_Sage commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:

The thing about multiplayer on these titles is that from what I've heard, the link cable is notoriously difficult to emulate (I'm sure some people are like 'DO IT ONLINE' but the strict timings it requires makes this a bad idea). Seems like a lot of work for little benefit (for me at least, I don't think I've played a GBA game in multiplayer even once). It doesn't really have to do with emulating multiple GBAs...I'm sure WiiU could handle a few GBAs at once, it's the extreme flakiness of the link cable that's the actual problem.

I seriously doubt it would ever work on 3DS, because the wireless would add all sorts of latency that would again make it very difficult to do. It seems like a lot of work for very little benefit, and I can't say I blame them for not doing it.

I'm glad they included the Virtual Boy. It may not have been a success (or even that great really) but it's an interesting part of their history when you realize that it was in some ways the predecessor of the 3DS.

9th_Sage commented on Review: Disney Frozen: Olaf's Quest (3DS):

Haha, calling the snowman 'allegedly humorous'. I haven't see the movie, but ever promotional thing I've seen of it that has this character in it, he just seems unfunny. Maybe one day we'll get past the need to put funny mascot/talking animal characters in every kids movie.

9th_Sage commented on 3DS Region-Free Hack is Hacked by Hackers:

@PrincessEevee9 I never said piracy wasn't illegal, I also never said I was 'in favor' of piracy or some such thing (in fact the hardcore pirates out there piss me off). I get it though, you just wanted to complain, this is the Internet after all. I know it's the thing on Internet forums/news sites to respond to things without actually reading them fully, but please read a little more closely next time. :)

9th_Sage commented on 3DS Region-Free Hack is Hacked by Hackers:

"The crux is that the region-free 3DS workaround appears to have been blocked off, and on top of that those behind the launcher appear to have implemented code to brick systems that have already been hacked in the first place."
Wow, they're freaking jerks. At least the region free hack has a legitimate use, their card pretty much is only good for piracy (let's be honest here...since it's one game at a time and no homebrew or anything that can be used, that's the size of it).

9th_Sage commented on 3DS Hack Removes Region Locking For Retail Car...:

@JaxonH The game ITSELF requires an update...presumably there were some bugs post-launch that they wanted to fix. You need to go to the eShop for that (I should point out that you don't go to the eShop to do system updates), but you can't, since as of this time a US system can't access the Japanese eShop. Please, read up on this a bit more. IT did not take me long to click through and read up on this.

@unrandomsam It's not strange at all...it seems they don't figure things out themselves, but wait for someone else to do it then use the exploit, which is unfortunate (it would be far from the first time they've done something like that). You're giving them too much credit. I used to really pay attention to the DS homebrew scene, so I heard a lot about that, haha.

9th_Sage commented on Dallas Tech Company iLife Thinks Nintendo Stol...:

Good lord, again? Oh well, more than likely they'll hand out a spanking to these guys too. Unbelieveable. I still believe they're patent trolls...no one makes all kinds of innovative products (as these guys claim) then doesn't bother to put them on their website.

9th_Sage commented on Rumour: Minecraft Is Already In Development Fo...:

"I agree a Wii U version would make sense, btw. The only reason for no current plans is we've got too much work already. I <3 Nintendo."

Notch just said on Twitter (along with, before that, "I am not aware of any plans to release a Wii U version of Minecraft."). so I guess that lays this to rest, absolutely.

9th_Sage commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:

I was just able to redeem a $50 eShop card on the WiiU Shop, then buy Knytt Underground, but it won't let me download it right now, it keeps erroring. It bought it just fine though, I guess I'll have to wait and download it another time.

9th_Sage commented on Rumour: Minecraft Is Already In Development Fo...:

I...don't think we should take this as anything more than rumor, but when questioned semi-recently about why Minecraft wasn't on WiiU, Notch said something like "Why not?" so maybe their previous stance of "very unlikely" has become somewhat more likely. Who knows?

9th_Sage commented on Nintendo Acknowledges Network Issues and Sugge...:

Oh, so there IS a problem like that. I was wondering (was trying to get into the Uplay stuff on Rayman Legends in order to redeem a code for a special character and it took a few tries). Not to mention it kept reporting network services not available... which was causing the Uplay to error out actually, I think.

9th_Sage commented on Proposed Ghosts 'N Goblins Reboot Is Cancelled...:

Well that wasn't a surprise. I realize that they probably thought they'd get more funding if they uses that name, but really...that was dumb. "Hey guys, we have no rights to this name, but we'll use it anyway! No game company has ever gotten angry with that! There's also not a part of copyright that a company must defend their copyright or lose it! No sir!"
