@AVahne Based on my experience I find it underrated. It's incredibly stable and I play in the dark all the time. I can lay in bed in a perfectly dark room without issue. In regards to people with thick glasses, well you can always turn it off. Better to make make a majority of users happy than none at all. I think it's a great and innovative feature. I'd have a very hard time going back to the older model at this point.

How the Nintendo NX is presented will be the only deciding factor for me in regards to whether or not I should jump ship. If I even get the slightest hint that they've compromised their dedicated hardware then it's off to Sony I go. Looking forward to more NX details.

If you're boycotting this game over one voice over, GET A LIFE!!!! You've got to have some serious psychological issues to make such a foolish decision and quite honestly you don't deserve to play the game in the first place. What a shame!

Here's what Nintendo needs to do. Announce a new limited amiibo. In actuality produce a ton and let the scalpers buy up a tremendous amount of stock. Just keep on flooding the scalper market until it no longer becomes profitable for them. And Nintendo couldn't be held liable as "limited" could mean 10,000 or 10,000,000.

@shinokami I completely disagree with Miyomoto in regards to the future of VR. I don't believe for a second it's just a fad. I believe Oculus Rift will take the gaming world by storm. I think people are vastly underestimating how many others like myself are waiting for this tech to go commercial. I personally believe the Oculus Rift will bring back that initial feeling when you played video games for the first time. I think it's going to be revolutionary to be honest. As always time will tell.

Keep in my I will ALWAYS remain a Nintendo junkie regardless of what happens. =)

Oculus Rift will be a day one purchase for me. It's one of those things you need to try to fully understand how immersive it is. It's full on 3D filling up your field of vision that gives you an unparalleled sense of depth. It's not the same as simply sticking a screen in front of your eyes. People really need to stop making that comparison. You can't compare it to anything currently on the market.

Just imagine taking part in a space battle with full field of view in your cockpit or exploring some fantastic place with a group of friends. If you're playing a horror game you can't just turn your head and escape the world, no you're still in there. In fact people have been known to rip off their headsets out of sheer fear. Personally, I'm looking forward to it.

Try it before bashing it. That's all I'm saying =)

@elekid I agree completely. They made too many and the waves were too close together. At least that's my opinion. In regards to money Nintendo may enjoy all the cash scalpers are spending on their toys but in the long run they may actually be losing money. If I spend $80 on one rare Amiibo, that's 60+ in the scalpers pockets and that's $60 less I can spend on other regularly priced Amiibo's. Not only that but they're also frustrating the people who really care and that's never good.

I was willing to buy the whole collection but now I'm just losing interest due to the difficulty in finding specific Amiibo's. It's just not right when they don't even show up on store shelves. My daughter was looking forward to Rosalina and I just don't see it happening. It's just becoming too damn difficult and it really isn't worth it to stress over these things.

I was excited until I realized the scalpers will buy up every single one in the first 10 minutes. Seriously, what's the point? Anything Nintendo releases lately in limited quantities is virtually impossible to get your hands on lately.

According to eBay: "Wii U sells 4,000 consoles in 17 minutes as eBay’s Black Friday deal". That's not too shabby.

"The Wii U, priced at $259.99, sold out 4,000 units in less than 17 minutes, with customers snapping up four of the devices per second. The $399 iPads sold at a rate of one per second, with 2,000 disappearing in a just over 30 minutes"

Is it possible we're all just over reacting? =) Its very common for rage quitters to disconnect or power off their system during competitive matches in order to avoid a bad ranking. I don't think it's a coincidence we're seeing this only happen during "For Glory" matches. Honestly, I'm not worried at all. A game will not break your system. If there was a serious problem with the system firmware then we would have already seen this issue with other games.

@ACK You're probably right, this most likely has something to do with the underlying API used by all apps to save files. I very much doubt this is a problem with SSB. I'm going to continue playing and just be sure to power down safely when I'm on the title screen. I'm still willing to bet rage quitters, prematurely disconnecting or powering off their system is behind this mess. Nintendo may simply end up patching the game to display an appropriate "save in progress" message and that's about it.

So this sounds like a corrupted save data issue. Is it possible people are turning off their Wii U's during For Glory matches hoping a bad result doesn't get saved to the servers? I could see this becoming a problem if people are turning off, unplugging their systems mid-save.

Akira_1975 commented on Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Enjoy Biggest UK P...:

I love my Wii U, I really do, but I'm extremely frustrated with Nintendo's horrendous marketing campaign. I live in Canada and I haven't seen one, not ONE Bayonetta 2 TV spot. I actually had to hop on youtube in order to watch the B2 North American commercials. This isn't a new problem either. It's been a problem since the Wii U day one launch. In fact the Wii U launch commercials were absolutely atrocious. The cheesy family oriented commercials were a huge fail and completely scared away the serious hardcore gamers. I'm starting to wonder if Nintendo has all but given up on the Wii U behind closed doors. Just feeding us enough to keep us on board until the next system release. Keep in mind I'm just frustrated because I love the system so damn much. =(

What if Nintendo has secretly pickup up the IP and are contracting out the work to Namco? I mean it's possible =) That would be one hell of a surprise of Nintendo, that's for sure. I loved Zombi U and a sequel would make me very happy indeed.

Akira_1975 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

I'm still convinced the lack of decent commercials plays a much bigger role here then Nintendo is willing to realize. There are still allot of people out there who don't even know the Wii U exists. I know this is hard to believe but it's true. Sony on the other hand has had a killer showing on TV. Honestly, it's almost infuriating how badly Nintendo has screwed up on the marketing front. Just look at Bayonetta 2 which is a runner up for game of the year. Where's the advertising?!?!?! Not only that but why aren't they making it clear to existing Wii owners that the Wii U is new system and not an add-on? People out there are STILL confused by the whole thing. I love Nintendo, and I love my Wii U, but Nintendo has taken some huge missteps when it comes to marketing. They should fire thier entire marketing division and start over. Seriously. The only things that makes me feel better now is knowing that I'm getting a PS4 shortly. That way I'll have the best of both worlds. I just wish I didn't have to own 2 consoles for that to be the case.

Akira_1975 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Claims Seco...:

I love my Wii U, I really do but I'm becoming extremely concerned with the lack of mature titles and the lack of interest in Bayonetta 2 is really concerning. I'm now considering getting myself a PS4. I just don't feel it's a Sony vs MS vs Nintendo situation any more. I'm starting to feel it's a Sony vs MS decision with a possible Nintendo system as a secondary console.

Akira_1975 commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

Maybe these companies need to stop aiming for sky high budgets. How many smaller budgets games could Capcom have released with the budget used for Resident Evil 5 for example? What I'd give for a nice hi-res 2D Castlevania on the Wii U for example. I honestly believe developers are shooting themselves in the foot with these huge high budget, 100+ hour games. It's great when it hits but when it doesn't it hurts, and hurts allot.

Akira_1975 commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

I don't know about you guys but I've had many systems in the past and the Wii U is by far one of my favorites. In fact I've grown to accustomed to the gamepad I'd have a difficult time playing without it. I'm glad I gave this system a chance and I'm looking forward to all the great games yet to come. It's just a shame to see such a great console struggle. It deserves better.

Akira_1975 commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

You know what I really think is a major problem across major western developers? Stuck up developers who only want to support the latest and greatest tech. I believe the developers distaste for the Wii U is actually impacting the overall business decisions of the organization they work for. Time and time again I've seen tweets by developers putting down the Wii U. Just one problem among many.

Akira_1975 commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

I just couldn't care less about Watch Dogs at this point. I just really hope people end up supporting games like Bayonetta 2 in order to prove Ubisoft wrong. That will be a day one purchase for me along with Hyrule Warriors.

Akira_1975 commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

It's a shame really. Ubisoft makes great games and I'd love to support them. The problem is they keep on bashing the Wii U and releasing negative news. Telling me they won't support a game before it's even released doesn't help. They then turn around and blame us for their games not selling.

Akira_1975 commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

It's amazing really how Ubisoft shoots themselves in the foot. First they make me feel like I'm getting a cheap port by releasing this game late. Doesn't help that all the hype is dead by the time it does come out. Second, by telling us there's no DLC content coming makes me feel like a 2nd class citizen. I was excited about he game originally but have since then lost all interest. So they shoot themselves in the foot by taking these actions which help lead to poor sales and then tell us they don't want to bother with our platform. Companies should help push systems out the door. I honestly am starting to feel that some companies are on a mission to destroy the Wii U. I know that's not true but damn they just keep putting their foot in their mouth.
