BertoFlyingFox commented on 3DS Release Added to Cult County's Core Kickst...:

I dont know, it's in first person view so I really wouldnt play it without a circle pad pro (which I dont have). Then the whole talk of the game being made anyway with KS serving as a way to speed up development. They basically splintered their userbase among the odd pros and cons they created.

they broadened the scope and excluded 3DS, now apparently they lowered the scope back. Yeah, talk about confusing.



BertoFlyingFox commented on You Can Grab a 2DS and Pokémon X for $100 at ...:

@LittleIrves I gotta admit I'm interested in the 2DS also. Saw a few out in the wild and I dont mind the difference in form factor or the smaller screens when compared to an XL, I've yet to actually hold one though.

Oh yeah...I have to talk you off the ledge lol.'d have to re-purchase all your VC games unless you transfer everything form your current 3DS to your new 2DS? But if you do that, you'd have to make a separate NNID and I guess use the 3DS for retail games and the 2DS for all digital. It'd be a pain in the ass, is what I'm trying to say.



BertoFlyingFox commented on You Can Grab a 2DS and Pokémon X for $100 at ...:

Dang, I may jump on that Target deal. I've been wanting to pick up a second 2/3DS system so my wife and I can play all the multiplayer games.

I'd jump on this deal even quicker if the NNID supported a more family-like ecosystem. I think I could connect eight 2/3DS' systems to Club Nintendo though, so there's that.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Feature: The Castlevania That Konami Doesn't W...:

....I think I would've liked the LoS games a bit more if there were Miami Vice suits in it.....just a bit though.

It would be cool if Konami re-worked this one and released it on the eShop. I'd also love Bloodlines to release on the VC....Lecarde was my jam!



BertoFlyingFox commented on Renegade Kid Releases Early Gameplay Footage O...:

That's a ginormous goal for this project, it'll need one hell of a push to make that.

Personally, I'm not interested in the genre or even the game. I've never played Moon Chronicles or the Dementia series (plan on picking up Moon for 3DS when it releases) but dropping their 3DS support probably killed a lot of the buzz Cult County had going for it. That's a huge chunk of gamers they just dropped, especially when considering their other games are available on 3DS.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Feature: The Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Direct...:

Smash Run Mode and customizable move sets were the most interesting parts for me. Also Greninja's reveal.

The different release dates dont bother me at all, I'm hoping the 3DS version releases in June so there's a nice balance of online games between 3DS and WiiU.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Castlevania Composer Michiru Yamane Joins Flyi...:

@jakeshapiro It's a Daredevil sketch by Rafael Grampa.

He also draws a lot of other comic characters if you like his art style.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Castlevania Composer Michiru Yamane Joins Flyi...:

A great composer but the game doesnt look very interesting to me, looks really slow-paced for an action rpg. I'll give the first one a try but I have a feeling this will release the same way the first game did, on PC, Sony, and iOS platforms.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edit...:

@gilvelez1 If you have a problem with my comment then it's best to address it directly.

It's a chance for them to make money by extending to both sides of the consumer coin. Maybe make a deal with SeaGate, or PNY, or Toshiba and officially label a nice sleek HDD that fits with the console and comes with the necessary cables. I mean, people are catching Pokemon on Google Maps and there's a wouldnt hurt to make a great HDD that fits with the console.

Complain about everything? Really? Every They're missing an opportunity while these eShop downloads are available for other platforms with more flexible storage. If that's complaining then it's complaining that could help improve their bottom line and make people want to get things on the eShop on a regular basis.

I love my WiiU, that's why I wanted to get BlackGate on the platform to begin with.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edit...:

@brucelebnd That isnt the case apparently, I have 4 HDDs at 1-2 TB and none of them are read. They didnt come with any Y cable but they work with literally any device I plug into it. So now I'll need a Y cable since I dont have HDDs with external power, with the chance of the WiiU still not recognizing the thanks.

Flash drives are nice and all but they fry, as mine has before. So nope, wont be spending upwards of $20 on different flash drives that will fry on me

@cyberbotv2 You're missing the point entirely. Customers shouldnt need an online FAQ for what HDD they need to work with a WiiU. Last time I checked, they want to make money as well. A nintendo branded HDD would kill confusion and bring money their way. Just because you're an avid gamer that looks things up on the internet, doesnt mean every WiiU owner is.

anyway, picked it up on PS3 with no fuss.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Deluxe Edit...:

Well I would buy this but I've filled up the 32GB capacity when Giana Sisters released. I own 4 external HDDs and none of them work with the WiiU. I wont be buying another one just for this one eccentric console unless it was in the $30-$40 range in-store (not online).

Seriously, why arent there Nintendo branded external HDDs that take the guesswork out of expanding your WiiU's storage. Why arent there much cheaper 200-500GB HDDs that are promoted by Nintendo in order to push the eShop titles.

Just baffling guys. The more Nintendo gets involved in the digital future, the further they fall from my favor.

Steam, other PC digital storefronts, and Playstation are completely snuffing out Nintendo's eShop right now. Picking this game up on PS3, where my HDD is miles from full despite having over 20 digital games on there.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Highlights Over 50 Unity Games on the...:

Nintendo should really try and release well-priced external HDDs for their WiiU. An officially branded one at a cheap price point will also give people incentive to grow their digital library. Maybe even add 3DS connection/storage, so they could be like brothers and share a room...

With all this news of their digital presence....they HAVE to ease their customers into the digital storage mindset. WiiU "deluxe" only has 32gb of storage.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Ex-Castlevania Chief Koji Igarashi Is Grateful...:

I think he has a session at GDC about this too, would be interesting to hear what he has to say.

I'm really hoping he has a new partnership in the works and eventually gets his own Metroidvania up off the ground. More equipment to find/wear, more weapons, an even bigger non-linear map, and something as wild as the upside-down castle. Would be nice if he keeps with the Dracula mythos too.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Wii Fit U Update 1.2.0 Trims And Slims for a B...:

They basically dont take any type of muscle into account. Mii characters dont even have muscles to form, so instead it turns all that into fatness because Nintendo for some odd reason accounted for fatness but not muscles. There's no point if you dont take the entirity of the body into account, because then a lot of people will get completely fake results with useless goals.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Review: BLOK DROP U (Wii U eShop):

Looks like a fun puzzler, especially for the price. A scoring system and a way of saving progress would make this a much more complete experience though. Also, challenges would be great. Maybe something like "portal" blocks that take you to a different area orsomething.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

What can I say here really. I'm not a developer and I dont aspire to be connected with the video game industry in any other way than a consumer. I dont really dig racing games, unless they're couch co-op kart racers. I dont really like anything that studio has put out, just because an old game is coming to WiiU it wont inspire a sale from matter how many advertisements one company or another puts out.

They were working hard on something EA didnt give a crap about, taking it down the ladder and then placing it on Nintendo's shoulders wouldnt really inspire much from Nintendo. The circumstances were pretty specific and it just didnt work out.

I'm not really interested in anything this guy puts out, especially with that attitude. He seems comfortable being an adult infant.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:


Well, it's so you could keep playing your PS4 games while you're out. It isn't a cross-buy deal, Killzone isn't downloaded to both your Vita and your PS4. It's running on the PS4 and projecting to your Vita through the internet, it barely works half the time and when it does it takes a while to get going with some stutter or input delay.

Cross-buy isn't exclusive to PS4/Vita, there are PS3 games with cross-buy too. That's a different thing, it's awesome, but different.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

Hmmm, I like the fact that it doubles as a TV remote so I could just switch to the WiiU input...or just off-tv play while my wife watches television.

I love playing VC games on it....hell, I love playing any game on it, the resolution just doesn't bother me at all. It's the indie games that I feel really shine on the gamepad.

He shouldn't really dump on a platform he's helping release a game on though, not fair to the developers at all. Just keep your twitter fingers in their holster, socially opinionated least until AFTER the game you're helping develop releases.

There are uses for the gamepad, people just aren't implementing it much. When games on new-gen systems are jumping on second-screen gaming, you know it has something of worth.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Latest PS4 Sales Figures Take it Past Wii U Li...:

for good reason, the ps4 is a great system. So is the WiiU, it just isn't selling as well.

I'm hoping once we hit the new fiscal year, Nintendo starts working hard on bringing games, demos, and some more customization options to the WiiU's interface.

I have a feeling it'll just be same old Nintendo, but with Nintendo-branded boardgames and a Nintendo-branded PowerWheel. All we could do is see what this whole Quality of Life platform is while everyone rags on Nintendo for this reason or that.

whatever, the world turns and I keep playing Tropical Freeze.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Wii U System Update 4.0.3 Goes Live:

It adds pages the more things you add to the home screen, but that isnt intuitive at all. No one wants a bunch of pages (that would have to be sorted one by one, mind you) when there could be three pages with clearly marked folders (VC, Digital, etc.).

They dont have to make the folders look boring either, but apparently wallpapers and themes go against Nintendo's very being....despite their Hanafuda cards and thousands of products doing the exact same thing.

Seriously, they need someone with a pulse updating these things. They work more on the eShop and its songs than they do on any of the home screen UI.

Why isnt there a DKCTF theme that you can drape over the home screen?
Why arent there mascot characters running around on Warawara Plaza? How is it that there are more real humans in Mario suits at the Nintendo Store in NYC than there are fake Miiverse Mario characters parading around your home screen??

Did dentists make the WiiU home screen? Everything is white and sterile, yet the games are friggin' amazing and colorful.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Console Wars Book Paves The Way For Movie Writ...:

It wasnt even really a console war for me, I got the Nintendo system and my brothers got the Sega, then we played the crap out of both.

This book/movie should just skip to the end where Sega is now making exclusive games for Nintendo...Console War over??



BertoFlyingFox commented on Weirdness: There's a Metroid in my Spelunky:

Yeesh, no need to jump on the dude because he doesnt know about Metroids. He got the mod first and made a video of it to show off, maybe he doesnt talk like you but not everyone on Earth supposed to talk like you.

Are nerds the new jocks? Cringing and poking fun when someone doesnt know what a layup or a halfback is?

No thanks. I'll accept the video for what it is: showing people a mod that they probably wouldnt know existed otherwise.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

Personally, I feel they're making a mess of their virtual console for both 3DS and WiiU. I'm surprised they're moving so quickly on bringing GBA games to WiiU when those are still not available on 3DS unless you're an ambassador.

It seems like their spreading themselves thin while trying to go in all directions. Hopefully something starts drumming up support for the console other than the 3 or 4 physical releases they've shown off.
