BassLostie commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

If I start making more money, maybe I'll get a PS4. But for this generation, I have my Wii U, and I'm just catching up with portable gaming. Got my Wii U in January 2013, but just got a 3DS in early 2014, and this one being my first portable console ever.

So, I have lots of games to buy still.



BassLostie commented on Guide: All You Need to Know on Mario Kart 8 Ch...:

Too bad I'm a huge fan of Toad. I like his handling, but his overall Speed cannot increase more even with Slick tires.

I like fast characters, because..... of course you want to win races. But, the Heavy 3 character have very poor acceleration and handling. I think I'll be switching to the Heavy 1 characters.



BassLostie commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms That Dual GamePad Su...:

I had a home accident once, and broke the Gamepad's screen. Had to get a new one, because the LCD screen enden up with 80% of dead pixels. It cost me 80.000 chilean pesos (around 190 US Dolars), so do the math.

Also, I read on some other website that, when synchronizing two Gamepads, the frame rate would drop to 30Fps. I don't know how they're going to solve those issues.... They must figure out a way to boost the system and make Wii U more powerful to support two Gamepads at once.



BassLostie commented on FIFA 15 Is Lacing Its Boots For A Wii And 3DS ...:

I'm from Chile, and let me tell you that FIFA and PES series, are the top sellers for PS3 and Xbox 360 here. But everyone who plays online, create USA accounts because for many Latin American countries the eShop benefits (or PS Network in the case of Sony consoles) or the access to buy is NOT available. So, we create american accounts and buy prepaid cards with dollars.



BassLostie commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Summe...:

It was really hard for me to send a vote, but I ended up giving my vote to Mario Kart 8, but only because I waited a whole year for the game, and now that I have it, it's like a dream come true.

But this is proof that Wii U has some awesome games in the catalog, specially the Wii U first party titles. Also, I'd like to recognize that the game I played the most so far, is Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. Back in March 2013, there wasn't too much games to play on Wii U, but I ended up playing around 600 hours of MH3U. The online multi-player is awesome and always keeps me coming back to the game. MH3U was my entry to the series, and now I'm really hyped for MH4U on 3DS or maybe a western release of Monster Hunter Frontier G for Wii U.



BassLostie commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

Mario Kart is racist??? Seriously!?!?! Most of Nintendo games and characters are fantastic.... that means they are not related with reality.... C'mon! This is like blaming Nintendo for being a Japanese company.... it makes no sense!



BassLostie commented on Nintendo Reports Financial Losses As Expected,...:

Nintendo should make more HD remakes, just to increase sales. Look at Zelda Wind Waker HD! That game is awesome, and sold a lot. That was the first one, and I hope that is not the last one.

And I don't really think the Wii U is a failure. I do think, that people just don't care about the Gamepad, and prefer super-high definition graphics and power of PS4 over the Wii U's graphics. However, I still haven't met someone who regrets buying a Wii U. I think it is a great console with a lot of great games in the catalog and deserves more attention (Nintendo is failing at advertising).



BassLostie commented on Mario Kart Month: Mario Kart 8 Character Profi...:

  • Super Mario Kart: Toad. I like him because he's lightweight, but not as light as Peach or Yoshi, and not as middleweight as Mario or Luigi. Koopa Troopa has equivalent specs, so I can ride with him as well.
  • Mario Kart 64: Toad. Same thing. He feels just as light and fast as Yoshi or Peach, but a little more stable.
  • Mario Kart: Double Dash!!: Here I like Toad, Baby Mario, Diddy or Baby Bowser. I like lightweight characters on Double Dash, and always choose a combination for Special items matters. If Toad is unlocked, I go with Toad, for the Golden Mushroom Special, and then I choose another lightweight character.
  • Mario Kart Wii: Toad, or any other lightweight character on the Magikruiser bike.
  • Mario Kart 7: Toad, with the Bruiser kart body, Mushroom tires and the Swooper glider. That's my favorite combination.
  • Mario Kart 8: probably Toad




BassLostie commented on Miiverse Update Imposes Restrictions on Postin...:

I think this update is good to prevent spamming. However, sometimes my friends are asking for help in some games, and to help them it usually takes me about three consecutive posts to tell them everything that's necesary.

So, I don't like this update. Maybe 1 minute would be OK, but 3 is too much.... and Miiverse is already slow! 0_o



BassLostie commented on Possibility of SNES Remix and Other Remix Titl...:

I want REMIX of all the consoles!!! But.... to be realistic, I think the best shot is to aim for SNES Remix. SNES Games are the most fun, creative and innovative, and they were in the most popular and best times of Nintendo's history. Just imagine challenges (with the "remastered" graphic style they've been using in NES Remix) for Super Mario World, Donkey Kong Country, Yoshi's Island, F-Zero, Super Metroid, Super Mario RPG, Kirby's Dream Course, and...... SUPER MARIO KART!

Or maybe even some SNES third-party great titles like, Chrono Trigger, Contra 3, Aerofighters, Killer Instinct, Mortal Combat, or some of the soccer games.

I think fans will be heard by Mr. Hayashida.



BassLostie commented on Video: Capcom Unleashes a New Monster Hunter 4...:

If you haven't played Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on Wii U, go get it now. It's an awesome game. It was totally the game of 2013 for me, and I gotta admit, it was better than Super Mario 3D World (and I am a huge Mario fan). I know you can't really compare those two games, but.... If i had to pick the best Wii U game of 2013, it has to be MH3U.

If you like RPG's get Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, you won't regret it.

HYPE for MH4 in 2015!!!



BassLostie commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I'll be playing Xenoblade Chronicles (longest game ever? Doesn't seem to end... Awesome game though) and at nights playing a little Mario Kart 7 Online, to keep the hype for Mario Kart 8.

Also, sometimes I enter the GTS on Pokémon Y just to trade Pokémon.



BassLostie commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:

I've gotten warned twice by Miiverse admins.

First time, I posted a screenshot from the credits from New Super Mario Bros. U, where appeared the names of Iwata and Miyamoto, and with that I simply wrote "Iwata and Miyamoto", with a happy face.

They blocked that message.... LOL

The second time, I was writing in a friend's post, and we where making jokes. I wrote something like "hey, I know your NNID password" ...... and they erased my message right away.

So, apparently, you can't write the word "password" on Miiverse.

Both warnings were kinda funny, though.... xDD



BassLostie commented on Super Smash Bros. Direct Will Bring the Hype o...:


I've been thinking that maybe Sakurai and his team have already finished the game. It's just that this is Smash Bros. and needs to be perfect. In February's Direct they announced Smash Bros. for "2014". We'll probably getting the release month (I'm betting for November 2014)



BassLostie commented on Mario Kart 8 Producer Explains The Absence of ...:

I don't think that a track editor would be a good idea. I think that the tracks created by the developers (specially since Mario Kart Wii) are very special tracks and have lots of details and arrangements so we players can enjoy playing them over and over again.

The amount of detail in MK8 tracks is just mind blowing. Just look at the video analysis from GameXplain and you'll understand. If they decided to put a level editor, it would be limited because as we are not developers, we don't know the limitations of the hardware capabilities, and that may result in laggy gameplay or something that may affect the gameplay experience.

I think Hideki Konno and his team have done a great job on the track desing, and they need to keep that work. Maybe DLC tracks can enhance the experience...... if you want more tracks for Mario Kart 8.



BassLostie commented on Video: What Could The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward...:

Everyone wants HD remakes of this game. Me too. But, maybe to make things faster, they should release an "HD pack" (like PS3 did with a lot of older PlayStation titles) and just port them into HD. An HD pack containing Skyward Sword and Twilight Princess, would sell a lot, I'm sure.



BassLostie commented on Exclusive: Nintendo Developing "Virtual U" VR ...:

Good one! LOL

If this was true, I wouldn't really like it, though. I already use glasses, so I'd probably have problems with this system... I love playing video games on the TV or on the Gamepad. I don't really need Virtual Reality.



BassLostie commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

I think the gamepad allows you to experience a different way in gaming options. If you've played Nintendo Land with friends, then you know what I'm talking about.

Also, there are other games where you actually use the Camera, the Mic, the gyroscope and the touchscreen. The problem is, Nintendo Land is the only game that uses the Gamepad's features at .... I'd say 85%.



BassLostie commented on Weirdness: First Zelda, Now Mario And Luigi Ma...:

I can see a figure that looks a lot like Mario (cuz, I see a human figure with red and blue, and a white spot on the head, like Mario's hat)... but I'm not a 100% sure. And I'm not sure about Luigi...

Maybe someone else could get a better screenshot to confirm.



BassLostie commented on Review: Super Mario Kart (Wii U eShop / Super ...:

I know we all here are huge Nintendo fans, but I got to say that I am really amazed of how everybody is so enthusiastic and passionate about this game. This is truly what makes Nintendo so special. Super Mario Kart was released more than 20 years ago, and still we're all very excited to play this game on the Wii U.

Got to say... Nintendo is awesome.



BassLostie commented on Feature: Looking at the 3DS Revolution on its ...:

Who else got a Wii U first and a 3DS after? Is just me? LOL

I got my Zelda 3DS XL (the one in the photo) the day of the launch of A Link Between Worlds. I'm loving my 3DS since then. Playing Mario Kart 7 online is great, and the features on Pokemon X/Y keep me playing all the time. I'm still lacking more great titles like Luigi's Mansion DM, Super Mario 3D Land, Kid Icarus, and more. I'm already saving money for them ;)



BassLostie commented on Feature: What We Want to See in SNES Remix:

Mr. Hayashida has done a great work on NES REMIX. NES REMIX 2, looks much better with all the real remixes shown on this last Nintendo Direct (like Samus destroying bricks on a Mario Stage, or Link fighting in Bowser's Castle). So I think it's very likely they would develop SNES Remix.

I think most of Nintendo true fans (including myself) where mostly enchanted by Nintendo games on the SNES era. So, Nintendo needs to make this happen.
