@rjejr
Oh I could agree there. The initial set-up is weird, especially if you arent used to Melee and the GC controller.

The flipped A and B buttons has really made for some awkward control schemes across the library. I play on the other consoles too, so I constantly mix their "Cancel" button (circle on PS, B on XBO) with WiiU's "Accept" button when navigating menus.

Honestly, the online has been so spotty for me that I dont think I'll be comfortable trying to play it competitively. It gets to a point where the screen just freezes for 1-2 seconds at a time.

@rjejr
You could customize most of the buttons though, so not really rubbish since that's the best thing a fighting game can do.

BertoFlyingFox commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

Ooohhh, a bunch of people in the comments section can't read a few simple quotes. He does say "I would love to have Call of Duty on our platform" so the pitchforks can be cooled off and put back into the haystacks folks.

My main console so far is the WiiU. The exclusives have been awesome, the indie games are fun, and the VC grows a bit month after month (still playing through Circle of the Moon).

I do own a PS4 too, it doesnt get as much playtime since the overall game library is lacking for me just a bit. It isnt for lack of variety, PS4 has a lot going for it, but the actual content has just been mediocre-to-forgettable. Of all the PS4 releases, the standout games have been Shadow of Mordor, MetroRedux, GroundZeroes, and Lords of the Fallen. A lot of the other games I picked up just didnt hold my interest and returned them quickly.

Sounds good to me, I know I dont always have the best sleep, would be kinda neat to have a device that tells you why that is rather than a doctor conducting expensive tests only to give me a prescription and shove me out the door.

All the apps I've used or read about, just focus on when to wake you up during your lightest sleep cycle. Which is bull because some of them have woke me up way too early. They usually arent tied to reputable medical sleep analyzers and they definitely dont tell me jack about a diet plan based on sleep patterns.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

For the sake of competition this holiday, I think it'd be smart for them to give it a temporary price cut during the BlackFriday/Christmas season. It would just look really enticing with Smash Bros. for WiiU, I think even current console exclusive owners would see the WiiU as a nice addition for the price.

Sales wise, I'm not sure anything in gaming can keep up with PS4 right now, but I think Nintendo will do good by their standards.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Wii U-Exclusive Super Smash Bros. Modes and Ch...:

This one stood out for me. I really like the idea of having to carefully pick a team of fighters as your stock. If we're allowed to switch out their order, it could become even more strategic. You could easily end up using a Fox that doesnt have enough defense to go against another players Bowser with a huge buff to attack, therefor making that fight even more challenging.

Does anyone know if the board game is 4-player online too? That would make it a mode I'll constantly play for years to come.

Other than that, the content they've crammed into SSBWIIU is impressive. Can't wait to play all the modes and challenges.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U to Feature Grab th...:

I loved the Temple Stage. Things got intense in the lower section of the stage, there was always a chance that a person could come back from a smash knockout by reaching for the higher levels.

@porky That's because quite a few stages are better suited for Stock Smash, not Timed. Players would try to beat the clock on any of the stages with lots of ground, which is why you even play Stock, so that doesnt happen.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

I like the N64-style graphics, I'd prefer to see more indies use it as opposed to the same 2d pixels ad nauseam. As long as the gameplay is smooth and they truly make it a whacky football game kinda like an enhanced Blitz, I'm fine with it.

A Samurai Jack game would look great in that N64 retro style too.

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

Further defeating the purpose of the delay. Ubisoft is a confusing little company with all the release flubs they've committed lately. Oh well, I've tried this game already and didnt like it very much. Bayonetta2 and eShop indies will be filling in that spot comfortably.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Super Smash Bros. Continues Chart Domination i...:

@Pod couldn't have said it better. Unless these guys all start jumping onto twitter and saying their game is a failure....I dont see a need to worry.

This isnt a "make or break" title that needs high opening sales. 3rd place on the software charts under two ginormous 3DS games isnt really sitting at the bottom of the barrel either.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

This guy is full of crap. While region-locking could in turn help hardware sales, that's not it's sole purpose for existing.

Region-locking has connections to ratings boards, which are government-run, so the red tape piles up as you go from region to region. As someone who worked in dvd distribution, I could tell you a lot of companies use region-locking, Sony among them.

Licensing could be another issue, because certain licenses arent allowed in certain regions. Games on Steam, XBL, and PSN have been pulled from the store completely due to licensing issues or simply expiring. Look at the PSTV, it's biggest form of distribution would be through limited licensing (like Roku and other similar devices)....and that is region-locked.

Why do you think it took 10 years of lobbying just to get the R18+ rating for Aussie game distribution? This isnt some interconnected world where all countries sing kumbaya by the fire. There are a lot of confusing policies, some which could outright negate another's, creating some sort of sadistic catch-22.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Cancelled Mario Volleyball/Wrestling Wii Title...:

Ehh, the wrestling/volleyball concept isnt that interesting to me. I could understand why they'd scrap this, especially when seeing the wrestling moves.

I hope this still makes way for more Nintendo-themed sports titles though, we need more Looney Tunes B-Ball style games on the eShop. Now is the time for them to experiment with smaller digital releases, especially when seeing Project Guard and Giant Robot show up briefly at E3.

Hmmm, it must've been a very select group of Club.Nintendo members. I got Platinum and opted-in when I first created the profile, didnt receive anything.

Oh well, I look forward to the NA demo on the 19th...have fun with the early demo everyone!!

BertoFlyingFox commented on Game Schedule Outlined for Nintendo Treehouse ...:

I'm definitely happy with the line-up, dont mind seeing more of Bayonetta 2 and Hyrule Warriors before I get to play them in the next month or so.

Fantasy Life is a nice little surprise, glad they put that one up there. I'll be watching this stream on and off throughout the day.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Famitsu Releases Dossier on Sherlock Holmes' A...:

Still havent played any Ace Attorney games, waiting on that trilogy to hit the 3DS later this winter before grabbing all the other games.

Holmes looks cool but the girl just seems so out of place, like they stole her from project diva or something. Still, I hope this one gets localized and they keep the Meiji restoration as background for the story.

BertoFlyingFox commented on Rock Zombie Is Bringing Hard Rock And Side-Scr...:

Looks really bad, especially the over-use of the main attack throughout the trailer. Grunt + Guitar overhead swings ad nauseam.

Most of the fun of Golden Axe and Final Fight was couch co-op and that seems to be missing from this game entirely....
