@sinalefa If they put that mean Goron in, what'll probably happen is that as soon as you unlock him, your Hyrule Warriors data gets deleted.

@MixMasterMudkip Yeah, I've been wanting Groose for a while. With all this Twilight Princess love, don't forget Skyward Sword either. Besides, Groose would definitely make sense (being in the Knights Academy). I hope if they put Groose in, his awesome theme goes in as well. And don't forget dat pompadour...never forget it..

@Angelic_Lapras_King I hate to seem nitpicky, but Lucina was never in a swimsuit. She was in Summer Scramble DLC, but she wore a kimono and there was never censorship. I believe you're referring to Tharja in her red bikini shown in Summer Scramble (which was censored for NA). They're two completely different characters.

Chubblings commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

@JaxonH That's the mindset that gamers should be having. Because at the end of the day, when you become so nitpicky, making big complaints out of everything, you're forgetting why you're actually playing a game, to have fun.
On a side Zelda note, the link I've put below shows an image regarding the 'hardcore' Zelda fanbase cycle that was created before Skyward Sword was released, and was actually pretty accurate with their reactions at release:

Chubblings commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

@JaxonH I think you'll enjoy Skyward Sword I don't know if it'll be your favorite (it is my favorite one), but you'll definitely enjoy it. The game gets hated a lot amongst the hardcore Zelda community because it was the newest Zelda game (Zelda cycle). However, many of the complaints are very exaggerated, thus do not believe all the negativity regarding the game. The motion controls, something that was complained about, function properly if you correctly calibrate them. As a matter of fact, they work extremely well,helping make the combat a more interesting affair (it's more than just the waggling seen in Twilight Princess). They really were the definitive controls for a Zelda game for me (so when I was playing Wind Waker HD it felt odd going back to buttons). Graphically, the game pushes the Wii to it's limits and looks incredible. This is due to its impressionist art style, which makes the game look like a beautiful painting set in motion. The story, whilst simple, is very emotional and heart-touching. All of the NPC's and main characters are interesting and motivate you to speak to them or complete whatever side-quest is related with them. The dungeons are all really enjoyable and great, and their new approach to the dungeon design is fresh. Boss fights continue to be easy, yet creative and fun. A notable complaint about the game is its linearity. Unlike Twilight Princess, there is not huge pieces of lands to explore. However, the lands that you do explore, are not as barren as Twilight Princess, and there's many things to do in these lands. I apologize for my long comment, but my intended purpose is that you should definitely finish Skyward Sword and not skip it, as I feel, it is something that once you complete, you won't regret. I don't know how far you are in the game, but if you are early in the game, then you should definitely finish it, as it gets better as you progress. Once you finish the whole game and see everything, it truly is amazing.

@Emblem Yeah, I'm excited for those three as well. Hyrule Warriors for September 19 (I'm in Europe), Samurai Warriors 4 for October 24. I know Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires will eventually come, but do you know when it'll come, as I don't think it's been announced yet for the West.

Chubblings commented on New Official Hyrule Warriors Screens Show Off ...:

@shigulicious Even though this does not necessarily confirm all the villains that I mentioned, it is probable that they will be. As I said before, in past Warriors games, any sort of non-generic special character has been playable. Furthermore, making these characters playable would expand the roster, which so far, is good, but very small. Warriors games have had a history of large rosters. However, it is also possible that they may not be playable, as in the E3 Demo for Hyrule Warriors, while it only lets you pick between Link and Zelda, the character selection has a total of 9 slots (including Link and Zelda). That would mean that 7 out of the 9 characters would have been confirmed. Personally, I'm hoping that the roster I wrote out , is the final roster for the game, as those are all characters who appear in the game.

Chubblings commented on New Official Hyrule Warriors Screens Show Off ...:

So lets see the playable characters so far for Hyrule Warriors:

-Link
-Zelda
-Impa
-Midna
-Agitha
-Fi
-Ganon/Ganondorf (I believe Ganon was teased in the E3 Trailer)
-Ghirahim
-Lana
-Cia
-Wizro
-Valga

I know the villains in the game will be playable because in both Dynasty and Samurai Warriors, you have always been able to play as any special, non generic warrior. A better example being Warriors Orochi games, where you can unlock and play as Orochi, Da Ji, e.c.t.
If you can't play as any of the villains, then it'll be extremely disappointing as Warriors Games normally have massive rosters, and even with my list, the roster is still small compared to a normal Warriors game. So this list should not really be cut, as these are all the special characters appearing in the game so far.

Chubblings commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

I have a 13 year old cousin who's been growing up with Sony consoles, and he knew what a Gameboy was when he was 5 (granted he was introduced to games at the age of 2). It's not necessarily that you have to grow up with the device, because I didn't grow up with the Gameboy, but I certainly knew about it. Same with how I didn't grow up with the NES or the Atari 2600, or all the other consoles before it. Nevertheless, you do have to understand that these are children who play only on Smartphones, with only a few of them having played on the DS. None of the people in the video really played video games as a hobby. Majority of them use it as a timekiller with the Apps on Smartphones and tablets. The only video game systems I heard mentioned were Wii or DS, which pretty much everyone has.

Chubblings commented on Video: Impa Shows Off Some Deadly Moves in the...:

Impa's attacks seem like almost a mix between Guan Ping and Zhou Tai, if that makes any sense. Or she might attack like Sakon Shima. Regardless, it looks like she (along with the rest of the roster that's been shown) will be extremely fun to play with. I'm extremely excited about this game, and I have for a while. There was no reason for me to be skeptical, as I've always loved and appreciated Warriors Games and Zelda. Although it still irritates me that people think Warriors Games are only button mashers. To those people, I say, don't play on Easy or Normal, play on Hard or higher and see how mindless it is.

@aaronsullivan For Hyrule Warriors, you may need to take reviews with a pinch of salt. Aside from Japanese reviews, the Warriors games have always gotten bad reviews in the West, even if the games are good. So if you have PS3/360, I suggest picking up Dynasty Warriors 8, and see what you think of it.

While the hardware numbers aren't that big, you need to factor in that consoles haven't been selling that much in Japan with the all new tax policy. I mean, just look at the other hardware sales. Solid numbers for MK8 itself though.

This seems like a big step up from 2013, and I don't really mind that it's not a live conference, aside from the fact if Zelda U is announced, as that would be more special, live. Overall though, it seems a lot more structured and more appealing, simply because they have a lot of potential good content that they can show (as well as the surprise game). Hopefully, the stream runs better than it did last year.

Chubblings commented on Mario Kart Month: What Mario Kart Means To Me:

@Andremario They couldn't believe their eyes. It was the first time that they had seen so many vivid colors, so much "kiddiness", so much fun...and they liked it. BTW, I'm not insulting anyone who likes COD, I'm referencing the "hardcores" who play only COD, think it's the best, and everything else sucks.

Chubblings commented on Mario Kart Month: What Mario Kart Means To Me:

Well just a few weeks ago, I had another MK moment. It was about 40 students including myself, on a long trip to France from UK. My friend and I were the only people who had played video games on our bus (our bus ride was also 12 hours). Everyone else were people who had either never played video games, or part of your standard COD, Fifa casual market. So my friend and I had each brought our Mario Kart DS cartridges, and we played against each other in races. It didn't take long for time to pass. But soon after we started playing, everyone started paying attention to our races, and everyone asked if they could play Mario Kart each. Everyone on the bus 'took turns' for playing Mario Kart, and those 12 hours went by fast.

I've seen the videos from MKTV on YouTube, and the quality is good. Mind you not as good as a capture card quality, but still really good (especially since this is free, and Wii U capture card is expensive).

Chubblings commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Looks Out of This...:

@memoryman3 I understand that graphics is not a primary concern for a console, but I feel the Wii U could have at least been a bit more powerful. Because although power doesn't make a console good, lack of power does eventually lead to lack of games. Granted, I'll be playing Arkham Knight anyway on PS4, but not everyone can afford multiple consoles, so it's sad to see that people will be missing out on this one.

@Mahe Obviously it won't compare to the 30+million sold from MKWii, but Nintendo already announced that the Wii U is now profitable for them. Advertising MK8 for Wii U won't get them to Wii sales numbers, but it'll still be a profitable affair. I know many people who are buying a Wii U for Mario Kart (and Smash Bros), so if advertised well, it could still print money (not as much money as the Wii though).

Chubblings commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Looks Out of This...:

@memoryman3 If optimized, the Wii U would be able to run UE4. Nevertheless, the main reason why Arkham Knight isn't coming on Wii U, is simply because Rocksteady would have to put so much effort to optimize it for Wii U (because of its non dev friendly architecture), only for it to sell badly as well. While I do buy third party games, most Nintendo fans don't. Thus releasing Arkham Knight on Wii U is a bad business decision.

Chubblings commented on Poll: A Tale of Two Blockbusters as Mario Kart...:

I've played Watch Dogs for several hours now on PC, and have come to a verdict. Great open-world, immersive gameplay, endless possibilities, you don't really even have to use guns, you can go through entire sections through hacking alone. Only complaints, are the awful arcade-style driving, and just how screwed up it is on PC. Anyone who has a PC, DO NOT GET WATCH DOGS ON PC. At least not until they patch it. It is so messed up, on all options, whether low settings or ultra, the game is screwed up (and I have a high-end PC, Nvidia GTX 780, 16GB RAM, intel core i7, e.t). Awful, inconsistent framerate. Not sure about console versions though. To be honest, I've been much more pumped about Mario Kart 8 though. I am awaiting the hundreds of inevitable hours to be spent on there.

I was excited about this game from Day 1, but the hype is killing me. LIke @Hy8ogen said, this is up there with Smash Bros and X for me, as I'm a huge Zelda AND Dynasty Warriors fan (have bought all Warriors games and DLC's). I'm not sure about the screenshots. If they're real in-game shots, they're gorgeous, and make amazing use of Wii U's hardware. However, they do look doctored/on PC. This is not something that Koei would only do, because loads of other companies do this as well, it's done for marketing purposes (to make people think, wow, that looks good).

I don't mean to sound harsh, rude, or inconsiderate, but games can't really be any cheaper. People talk about financial problems, but games are also becoming more and more expensive to develop. Developers can't just make games cheaper, at the end of the day, they need to make money too. Unfortunately, people, gaming is an expensive habit; always has been, always will be.

I really don't think this is good. It seems like they may have delayed the Wii U version, just to horde money with NFC. This is not the right thing to do for Smash, maybe something else. If they do use NFC, then I hope it's more like DLC that's extra, not something that was supposed to be a part of the game, but taken out for cash-grab.

Kirby's placing is kind of disappointing. I know it didn't get the best of reviews, but it's still an amazing game nonetheless (I differed in opinion, than the reviewers).

On a side note: expect the "UK hates colors and fun" comments coming.

Thomas, you truly were a speed demon in many of these clips. In terms of the game, I've been trying to avoid MK8 videos as much as possible, but these are impossible to resist. The disappointing new Battle Mode and somewhat limited roster aside, this looks to be the best Mario Kart yet

@JaxonH Yeah, a lot of people saying fire Iwata, but the problems he has are fixable. Many things that Nintendo's been doing/revealing over the past few days have been steps in the right direction/good news. (MKTV app, NFC, Wii U not sold at loss, Bayo 2 and Hyrule Warriors in Summer in Japan, e.t)

@ajcismo I agree with many of your points, and feel Nintendo does need change in management. However, one also has to take into consideration the fact that, what if when Iwata goes, we'll get a boss who just wants to please shareholders, and moves Nintendo (games) to smartphones. In that case, I'd take Iwata anyday over a boss like the one I've described.

Since I think quick boot will only apply to digital games, it won't affect me (I buy physical). However, I am liking the improving loading times in games. Seems like Nintendo is slowly starting to fix things on Wii U (hopefully account-based systems next?)

@SphericalCrusher I remember spending hundreds of hours on the Tony Hawks games on the PS1 (yeah I know, a bit much). I also hope Advanced Warfare hits Wii U because it's a third party that Wii U needs and they're fun to pick up and play. I buy COD's on and off (last one was Black Ops 2). It seems likely that it'll come though, as COD games came on the Wii.

I'm a physical games guy, and prefer to have the boxes on the shelf, but there have been times when I've wanted something on Eshop. However, I will not buy anything on Wii U or 3DS Eshop until they have account based systems. Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (part of Mario Kart 8 deal) will be my first digital game on Eshop, and even then, I'm a bit hesitant (despite it being free). Nevertheless, it's good to see them doing well.

Yeah, bring Monster Hunter 4 Wii U. Wii U just seems like a better fit for it. Portability is great, but it looks better on a home console, and the controller is more comfortable (circle-pad pro feels awkward, yet playing Monster Hunter on 3DS without it makes the camera hard to control). And bring that new Ace Attorney Game with ancestors, because I loved Dual Destinies (and all the other entries except AA4).

Ok, thanks for your comment. I really appreciate you replying, as originally I was hyped for the game, but reviews made it a bit shaky, and I was considering starting on another Kirby game (Nintendo Life even gave it a 7). However, after seeing some opinions from different people, I know this is a must-buy for my 3DS and hope that this gets me hooked into Kirby series.

@Peach64 I agree with your comments but wanted to point one thing out. Microsoft may have SHIPPED 5 million units, but that does not mean that they have SOLD 5 million units. Sony and Nintendo both give the number of units sold, but Microsoft has only given units shipped. They could have shipped 5 million consoles, and only sold 4 million, though I understand what you meant.
