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.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

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....



BertoFlyingFox commented on Video: Watch These Teenagers As They're Expose...:

Well that is how time works. Kinda like if someone young were to see an ode to "The Raven" and instead think it's an ode to that one TreeHouse of Horror episode from The Simpsons.

There was a video I saw about Bioshock Infinite talking about memes....they thought "battle at wounded knee" was a Skyrim meme and not an actual battle that happened.

There are always those who seek knowledge and there are those who dont. Child or adult, it doesnt matter. Maisie Williams could probably school me on famous actors, or even current pop songs...since I dont follow that knowledge because it doesnt particularly interest me.

I like these videos and hope for more. It's always good to spread the knowledge rather than get angry that kids arent automatically attaining it from Wikipedia and buying retro consoles for the good of gamer-dom.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Walmart Lists Blue And Red Smash Bros 3DS XL C...:

I like the design but I'll be waiting for the New3DS instead. I wonder if they delayed bringing the New3DS/XL to NA/EU just to give this system room to sell....especially if parents will be picking this up come Christmas thinking it's the "New" New3DS.

I understand it from a business perspective but still confusing and weird.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo Download: 4th September (North America):

I'll be picking up the Curtain Call and BitBoy demos, probably Street Fighter 2010 too, that actually looks like an entertaining action platformer.

I'll be waiting for reviews when it comes to Cubemen2.....I also thought Teslagrad released today but I guess that's next week. Oh well.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Interview: Six Miles Under Developer Discusses...:

I will gladly back this, I love the concept.

It would be cool to have a couple stages/sections where the camera flips to the other side and you could clearly see everyone fighting.

Those tunnel sections with baddies chasing you reminded me of The Dark Tower.

There's a stretch goal for co-op that I really hope this game reaches.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

I'm on board. I like the design and feel the new smaller C-stick could have people re-thinking analog sticks for different hardware down the line. Of course, it could do the exact opposite too, but we'll wait and see.

Nintendo has always been hardware focused, everyone should've got that memo when GBC was taking off...the memo was also sent a second time when DS and DSi became things. We arent talking a $500 cellphone or a $250 Vita with no memory card either. $140-$180 with an included memory card is way cheap for a handheld device in this industry, especially if we're talking about gaming enthusiasts.

As for "exclusive games". Nintendo always had exclusive games. One game that's already been available on Wii for years isnt really exclusive. To handhelds it is sure, but that's more because the N3DS can handle the load. If the 3DS can't handle running a game, that game can not exist on that system, very simple.

The name is definitely confusing, I could live with it but it's just not good for western markets. A holiday release would've really had people buying these up like crazy though, so maybe they just dont care about the name at all.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

Just say it you uptight PR puppet.

"Microsoft and Sony paid us a buttload to put this game on their platforms. If Nintendo pays us a buttload then poof, it'll appear on that platform. Alas, they dont want to throw money at us so we'll keep making Vita versions that wont sell."

The funny thing is that I dont even care for Minecraft. It just makes sense because if kids like Minecraft then Nintendo is a safe bet. Oh well.
