CrabGats commented on Meet LeapTV, The Wii Challenger in 2014:

I'm sure it'll still sell. Not as much as the Wii, obviously, but I can see parents falling for this. It happens.

I'm surprised Nintendo doesn't embrace educational games with popular kids show characters, though. Not as a main focus, but it wouldn't hurt to have commercials early in the morning revolving around educational kid friendly games, as well as inviting developers of that... genre? Can it even be called a genre? All I know is that I thought Reader Rabbit and Math Blaster were cool as a kid, and that if Nintendo promoted stuff like this, it could potentially sell Wii Us to families! They have motion controls, they have a tablet controller... there's a lot of neat stuff you could do with educational games on the Wii U.

CrabGats commented on Wii U Version Of Project CARS Drops To The Bac...:

I like when we're getting an exclusive, and then it becomes a multiplat, we have to wait for the other consoles before we get our version, but when the Wii U version of a game is taking a while to develop, they delay it only and release the other versions way earlier.

And I know Namco =/= Ubisoft but Ubisoft actually has done both these things. Shame on them.

Well, when all you play is a game from 2001, of course the graphics are going to appear to be on a completely different level.

No, but Mew2King joshing aside, they had some fair criticisms on the game, if what they said was true, I'd definitely like to see them fix that stuff. Or at least add back L cancelling.

Nintendo doesn't deserve the Pickfords honestly. Love Nintendo and all, but you can't excuse them for everything. I hope this new project of theirs is a success. Using Push notifications on phones can easily mimmick WiiConnect24 messages.

@CharleSketch MAYBE he was right? No, he was right. Keiji isn't a developer, never has been, a concept artist at most. Have you noticed whenever they have a new build, they have to call him in from who knows where? He's not always there, making sure everything is A OK.

Also, anyone who is saying that isn't what they would expect Beck to act like, you clearly never read up on Beck, he is the youngest and weakest of the Mighty Numbers, as well as a bit timid. I definitely think this is overdoing it though.

I think Racing Transformed didn't need to be on the list, the challenges you have to do to unlock the full roster are repetitive, and nobody plays online at all. Not to mention Mario Kart 8 is leagues ahead of it.

Welp, Nevada's on the list this time. But doesn't have any drop down options. I don't know what this means for us here in Vegas.

Assuming what happened last year, though, we aren't getting anything. Our rep would rather go to E3 than help Nintendo advertise.

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

Well, Ubisoft asked me to wait a while for our version of Watch Dogs to come out, so I guess I'll just wait a while til the price is low and nice, like I did with Rayman Legends. I could care less about Ubisoft at the moment.

CrabGats commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:

Cup DLC is a really bad idea, trust me. At least, new retro courses. If they do that, Nintendo will have less tracks to work with in their next games.

I wish they would've done actual battle arenas... Now DLC for that is out of the question. Unless they want to piss people off.

I really want character DLC, though; this game is oversaturated with babies, koopalings, and metal clones. And challenge levels with odd objectives like in Wii would be interesting.

CrabGats commented on Digital Foundry Pins Down Mario Kart 8's Resol...:

@Silent They DIDN'T say it was a bad game, though. I don't see where everyone is getting this from. This is Digital Foundry, they are supposed to properly analyze the graphical workings of a game. The fact that they stated that it drops to 59 fps isn't a stab at Nintendo, it's their job. You guys are ridiculous.

CrabGats commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

I really doubt NFC figures will move units. Mainly because NIntendo is being stupid about this. The appeal of Skylanders and Disney Infinity is the sandbox charm the games give off, in which you can customize your own character and send them off on your own adventure. Kids nowadays are moving on from Legos to videogames, as they enjoy the freedom to build their own characters and adventures, and these titles give them the chance to do exactly that. They have already stated that the NFC figures will unlock features and save/load information across various /already existing/ game titles. I feel that the fact that it is a feature locked to various games instead of a singular one is a big turn off, as unlike Skylanders and Disney Infinity where you have to buy a single piece of software, and branch off from there, you have to buy a Wii U, and then several figurines, only to need to buy three different games to use them all to their full advantage, not to mention what you can do to them is locked to the specific game, so whether or not certain figurines will appeal to children isn't certain. Again, children like the freedom these already existing NFC toys bring in to their game world, if they are restricted to simply moving their save files over to another Wii U through a figurine, or getting a new powerup, or more levels, I can't really see it catching too much attention. I mean, there's a CHANCE people will fall into it, but it just seems like it's going to be a really big investment to have fun with the figurines, as well as less interesting than Skylanders and DIsney Infinity, and I don't think that will be very appealing to any audience. That's just me, though. Let's hope for the best.

@bizcuthammer The thing is, they were working on it looong before Kickstarter, as a 3DS exclusive. They wanted a console release, so they started a Kickstarter to see if they could get the money. Not to mention they said they're "discussing other options". Not even in a different form, I'm sure we'll see it one day.
