A01 commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

The redesign certainly looks good.

I like the idea of Miiverse on the whole but I don't use it.

I like it best when it's implemented into games, so you can see peoples comments and drawings relevant to that level/area in the game during the loading screens or one random comment next to the stage selection like on NES Remix. That sort of thing.

But as for actually launching miiverse and looking through it? No. Not interested in doing that. I doubt the redesign will change that, but it certainly looks better than it does now, so that's good.

A01 commented on Prime Day Brings a Few Deals for Nintendo Fans...:

Maybe the Wii U bundle will help the console shift a few more units if the discount is good.

Not interested in Disney Infinity. And nobody is interested in the Smurfs.

On the non Nintendo side of things, I'm interested to see how much Far Cry 4 ends up being.

"trumpeted as a mature exclusive that would change the way we think about action shooters, promising to be a system seller"

Where the hell did anyone get this idea from?

The game always looked, at best, like a decent action game. Nothing more.

That sucks about the performance issues though.

A01 commented on Mojang is Still Open to Bringing Minecraft to ...:

It's weird that the only system Minecraft isn't on is the one system that seems like it was designed specifically for Minecraft and vice versa.

The gamepad with a permanent inventory would just be flawless. I know second screen inventories are seen as lazy implementations of the Wii U gamepad in most games, but for Minecraft where you're constantly switching building materials and tools, it's perfect.

It's actually beyond perfect. There is no game + controller combination better designed for each other.

Still, nevermind.

@ottospooky

I really liked Disaster Day Of Crisis. It was great.

The idea of dealing with natural disasters and helping people was new and different. A slight shame about the terrorist plot shoehorned into it though.

It was primarily held back by the hardware it was running on. The Wii couldn't really handle giant natural disasters in as engaging and enthrawlling way as the game deserved.

They did their best and I think they did well. If we got a sequel to Disaster on either the Wii U or even better, the NX, with the added power, they could really do that game idea justice.

@Monsti

They are overdoing it.

I'll complete the Smash collection, and then I doubt I'll ever buy another one. I imagine a lot of other people will do the same. I think after the Smash series is complete, Amiibo sales are going to plummet.

@Fuz

I'll try that as well. Thanks.

Yea, there really does need to be a proper way to turn off the Gamepad without turning the system off. It's so annoying to have to go out of range to do it. Or just let the battery die and not recharge it.

A01 commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Cuddles Up to Fourth Spot...:

Regarding Woolly World, is anyone else having performance issues? My game is stuttering constantly and consistently every few seconds. The music continues to play but the action stops for a brief moment.

The disc looks perfectly fine, but I've already requested a replacement. Which will hopefully arrive today. I hope it's the disc that's the problem and not the Wii U.

Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue?

I got my 4 today as well. My Ganondorf was missing his left arm, so I went down to Game to exchange it and they had at least 4 of each of the new Amiibo in stock, they didn't have much else mind you, except the usual ones. Although they did have a couple of Wii Fit Trainers too.

(Yes, I probably could have sold the faulty Ganondorf on ebay, but I didn't.)

A01 commented on Interview: Knitting Together the Pattern of Yo...:

I got the game today and the first thing I did was scan all the Amiibo in, the entire Smash roster works except the Pokemon.

Other than that, I've only been playing for an hour or so, but I think this is my game of the year so far. The cuteness is unbearable. I'd put it down as graphically the most impressive game this year. Other games might look more technically capable, but none are designed as beautifully and well as this.

I'm already enjoying this more than I enjoyed Arkham Knight this week.

A01 commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

Well if I had infinite money...

Retail games can be returned, exchanged, sold, borrowed etc. None of that is possible with download games. You have to make damn sure you want a download game because there's nothing you can do after you've bought it. It's just too risky to buy anything that you won't definitely like.

A01 commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

It'll undoubtedly be a good game.

But there were only two things people wanted from Nintendo at this E3 and they were a new Metroid game starring Samus, preferably on the Wii U, though a 2D one on the 3DS would've sufficed. And an Animal Crossing for Wii U.

We got a Metroid spin off and an Animal Crossing spin off.

Disappointment was inevitable.

I know the embedded video is meant to prove that the Wii U game looks like a Gamecube game, but it doesn't. The video proves the Wii U version overall looks quite a bit better.

It's hit and miss, I'll grant you. Some of the environments are poor. But the models and effects are all infinitely better than a Gamecube game. And the ground Tank level looks much better.

So when these are sold seperately, will they be sold as Amiibo or Skylanders? Whose manufacturing them? Which packaging will they come in? Will they be included in the 17 aisles of Skylanders stuff most shops have or will they be included in the 3 amiibos in the corner, under the bin, that most shops have?

I don't know why they announced stuff at the Championships and had a Direct recently and had the Smash Bros video before E3 if this was all they had.

They've should've crammed everything into the Digital Event. That way, it might not have been quite so disappointing.

@ZurrrrBlattTron

I have no interest in Final Fantasy 7, The Last Guardian or Street Fighter. Or even Uncharted.

The only thing Sony had for me was a new Hitman game. But based on the last one, I wouldn't even hold out much hope for that.

Still, they did better than Microsoft, who had absolutely nothing for me what so ever.

Bethesda had Fallout, Doom and Dishonoured though. And while they lose a hell of a lot of points for no Dishonoured gameplay and some less than impressive Fallout gameplay, they're still winning.

Shouldn't be too hard for Nintendo to surpass everyone. But considering how good Nintendo were last year, I'm not sure they'll be able to do it again this year.

@Parasky

My thoughts exactly.

How they had the audacity to beg for money at E3 during the conference of a company as large and rich as Sony, is beyond me. I don't know what they were thinking. The kickstarter has almost reached it's goal already of course. I'm glad the game is coming, but launching kickstarters at E3 really takes the piss.
