BertoFlyingFox commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

After everything Nintendo released last year, with no Zelda in 2015, this year will feel like a crapshoot.

Xenoblade looks like a great RPG, so that's nice. But the other titles either dont appeal to me at all or they consist of Miyamoto screwing around with motion/touch controls. Splatoon wont have voice chat or bots, that already makes me less excited to try it considering I like to communicate with friends online.

At this point, I wonder why the gamepad even has a microphone...oh yeah, so you could blow into it during Captain Toad levels....



BertoFlyingFox commented on Sony Hardware Takes Charge of Japanese Charts ...:

Nintendo's last few games werent very big and with Club.Nintendo shuttered, they're going to lose lots of attention. Sony is pretty much striking while the iron is hot, so much software has been good and their Spring Fever program is awesome.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:

I feel WiiU was their shot at going back to the more traditional style of gaming (despite the gamepad), and they found it's taking much more leg work to appease to the "hardcore" gamer crowd that doesnt really want to adopt Nintendo console hardware for one reason or another.

"Fun new ways to play" at this point, sounds great to me. Have at it guys, we all win when Nintendo just decides to be themselves.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Nintendo's Share Value Jumps a Massive 21% as ...:

That's great, we're entering another couple of years of exciting Nintendo developments. With DeNA upping their reputation in the mobile business and a new console reveal in 2016, it looks like they got hardware covered. Now I'm hoping we see a lot of stellar software announcements at E3 2015.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Here’s Why Axiom Verge is Not Initially Comi...:

I imagine it's a mixture of difficulty to get the game ported to WiiU and also exclusivity with Sony, because XBO is completely capable of running this thing too.

It'll be a PS+ freebie or a $5 steam sale by this holiday, I'll wait til then and pick up other indie titles on the eShop.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Talking Point: New Nintendo 3DS, Operation Fac...:

They did it to increase their profit gain and couldnt care less about the XLs stretched out picture or consumer choice. This is Nintendo now, they pick and choose exactly where they wont meet demand with supply so they could sell more expensive items. NA is essentially their "whale" now.

I dont mind, it'll just hurt them in the long run once they've milked the cow dry.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Excave Aims to Bring Dungeon-Crawling RPG Good...:

This looks great, especially for the price. I'll be sure to pick it up.

I hope smaller games like this keep releasing for the system. Gunman Clive, Xeodrifter, Azure Striker, and now what seems like a decently meaty dungeon-crawler.

@cfgk24 I wish they'd bring that back for WiiU. Maybe the Shadow of Mordor guys can make another Champions of Norrath.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Whoops, meant to pick the EG labeling system for the last question. Anyway, I generally like the reviews.

Lots of other game critics score games with a high number but the actual words in the review are just vague or excessively flowery. That isnt helping anyone. Props to EuroGamer for deciding to back out of that awful metacritic culture and revamping the review structure.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

This is going to be baaaad. You'd think because Nintendo is such a Japan-first company, that they'd have an anime movie first over there or something. Instead it's live-action with the promise of family friendly (think of those horrible shows on ABC) but they're also trying to apply Game of Thrones' structure to it.....making it sound like a "me-too!" series.

I have no hope for this. Get ready to see Jon Snow as talking Link.



BertoFlyingFox commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

Honestly, these YouTubers sound like stuffy ameteur TV executives. Thinking their "channel" is of higher value than it actually is.

We'll all still play games and the world will keep turning. Dont care about needing maximum revenue gain to justify you playing a game over a webcam.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Satoru Iwata States That Around 5.7 Million am...:

All the talk of new hardware between 3DS and WiiU has me thinking that Nintendo could be announcing the big handheld/home console hybrid by E3-2016.

What the analysts are saying should be concerning to Nintendo when they have the New3DSXL just starting to release in NA in a few weeks.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Weirdness: Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to ...:

Chances are, once re-stocked, they'll sell out within hours. I work and live my life, don't really have time to babysit reddit pages and retail stores.

I'm not in it for that, so I just dont buy any more of them and spend my money on things that are properly stocked by a normal company. Not this weird cornered scalpers-market Nintendo has going for itself. Even one of their own developers (most likely all of them) can't get amiibo for the game he developed for cripe's sake.

It'll still make Nintendo millions and continue to sell like hotcakes, so my buying amiibo or not means nothing to them. Just readily available software from here on out for me.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Weirdness: Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to ...:

I only picked up a few of my favorites. Captain Falcon, Pit, and Little Mac are nowhere to be found in my area and I'm not in a big craze to buy them off scalpers. I just stop collecting them and spend my money elsewhere.

The only one I'm picking up is Ike, but that pre-order could go the way of the dodo judging by news.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS Could Be a...:

They could compare sales numbers for different models all they want. It still shouldnt mean a lack of choice for one region while most of the others still get that choice. The Ambassador promotion in Europe makes this even more confusing, if NoA wont release the faceplate model....then why not at least release it as a Club.Nintendo promotion.

The kids I know like the 2DS and regular 3DS models, when commuting in NYC or walking in Disney World...those are the two models I see everywhere. The issue of extra costs for Nintendo would disappear too, considering they'll be selling faceplates like crazy and probably running out of stock for those within hours.

But alas, it wasnt meant to be so I wont be upgrading. The weight of the top screen and that clicking hinge just make the XL models uncomfortable for me. Consumer choice is just that...a choice made by the consumer, not their bottom line sales data team.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Interview: Exploring Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate...:

Their handling of the Palicos is really great, they feel more like two loyal pets that can help during different situations.

Love getting tossed onto dragons by my palico buddy! Also, the charge blade and glaive are sweet additions to the weapon selection.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

Well, not getting the New3DS model with faceplates in NA was a big bummer. But all the game news was great, I'm excited for a lot of it. Especially Fire Emblem, Xenoblade, and CodeName: STEAM. Looks like I'll be sticking to my current 3DS model for good.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

I really hope the faceplate model goes up for sale too, really dont find the XL models comfortable for my hands and I dont mind a smaller screen...I game on a 2DS regularly.

I think the MM-3DS and MH4U games pictured there is just to show what the N3DS will be getting in the coming months. I have a feeling those will be releasing between March and May with CN: STEAM.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Lucky New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Gamers Jump ...:

Scalpers were going to pop up for this no matter what. What makes it lame, is how Nintendo started distribution of their new handheld through exclusivity. If a solid release date was given for Europe and NA before this offer, that's fine. This way though? It seems Nintendo is embracing the exclusive collectors/scalpers market once again after the GC controller adapter and the bungled amiibo line.

I don't like this Nintendo....I don't like that they're more interested in exclusive offers by region without a planned release schedule. For the limited edition PS4, at least normal PS4s were out for the public to buy already. If this is their plan for their product line moving forward, I won't be a part of it.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

I'd like game suspension in the next Nintendo console. Where I could pause Bayonetta2, put the system to sleep, then wake it up at a later time and resume right where I left off.

Complete console/handheld integration would be amazing too. A console where I could just detach a part of it and use it like a 3DS, without the need for an internet connection.

I have a feeling they'll start revealing the next console between 2016-2017, with the intention of releasing it alongside WiiU and not technically meant to replace it.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Video: Two Smash Bros. Instructional Videos to...:

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.



BertoFlyingFox commented on Video: Two Smash Bros. Instructional Videos to...:

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.

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