Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

@WaveWarlock: Gaming isn't much fun anymore because of the concentration on sales, graphic comparison, yearly updates and so on. And who's playing all these games? Don't kids have school, and adults work? Haha, I guess not anymore. They're probably blogging right now about the next fiscal quarter and how Nintendo should advertise... Otherwise, the Wii U has provided me with a fun factor I haven't had since the cube. A gaming bust is on its way for all home consoles. Virtual Reality is not it. Higher specs are not it. DLC is not it. I'm not sure where it's going, but I'm only confident in Nintendo attempting some sort of innovation.

@Ryno : I agree with your A. Some of the comments here are a reflection of gamers that game too much. Most of my time is devoted to work and responsibilities. So a few hours a week is good enough. And I feel like there are too many games. The focus on sales, and user bases has destroyed the fun of gaming, and sites like Nintendo Life seem to add to the problem. How depressing.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: The amiibo Range Grows, Yet Key...:

I thought about this more last night. Amiibo could be a great way to attract 3rd parties. Give me a Wilt Chamberlain glossy trading card with an NFC chip or a straight up statue, and I could insert him into NBA 2K. Or give me Luigi to use in Resident Evil. This could even have applications in VC games. Insertion of the Nintendo line up into all types of games. A limited edition Batman figurine for Castlevania, and on and on. This has lots of possibilities. I wonder how well Nintendo can implement this.

I'm more fascinated by the possibility of Amiibo cards. I could have a thousand card deck and keep scanning it with different games. I think these figures are short term, and more for the collector. Reading the posts above, it seems the collector/hoarder has gone off the deep end.

I only own a Wii U, so I was just looking for games there. Captain Toad, and Xenoblade looked great. The Wii U VC was quiet other than for duck hunt which was one of the first games I ever played. The direct did not feel surprising. It was good to see Iwata looking healthy. The eshop stuff was interesting. We'll see.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 5th...:

The direct was good. I don't own a 3DS, so the majora mask game didn't interest me. And it also confirmed to me that they will never bring N64 games to the WiiU VC. The lack of DS games on the Wii U is another missing segment. On the good side, Captain Toad looked charming. Splatoon looked great. Xenoblade looked mind blowing. And lastly, the eshop looks stacked for indie games. My complaints are minor in the end, because I have way too much to play.

Cyberbotv2 commented on New Study Finds No Connection Between Video Ga...:

I think it's very difficult to correlate videogame violence with real world violence. However, I'm sure it has a powerful effect in shaping thoughts and actions. So, the kid playing GTA or COD is not being affected at all. No way. It promotes violence, and some of these folks have difficulty distinguishing real world from the digital world. They should do a study on the amount of parents buying these games for their under 18 kid, and saying its ok.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

I just want some significant VC stuff. I'd like to play some Genesis and N64 games on my gamepad. I'd love to hear about a re-release of Eternal Darkness in eshop or retail format. Just something. Otherwise, I don't expect much from this Direct due to the fact that Amiibo, SSB, and Mario Kart DLC will be the focus. Their overly extra focus on SSB has actually caused me to become de-hyped.

Cyberbotv2 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

I already know what's coming for the Wii U retail side the rest of the year. I don't know what's coming for the VC though. I'd like to hear about DS/N64 games. That's a promise Nintendo dropped the ball on. And where are the genesis, Sega Saturn, etc. That would be such a great thing to play these games on a gamepad. Again, I don't need a rehash of what's coming this year, and I don't want to hear about the Amiibo gimmick.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Curve Digital Talks Over Stealth Inc 2, Wii U ...:

I don't know where these guys popped up from, but I'll be picking up these new eshop releases this weekend. The games just seem such a natural fit for the gamepad. They'll be one of the developers I'll be watching moving forward. And much love for supporting the Wii U.

I'm sure Nintendo has been doing weird stuff like this for years, except we usually don't hear about it. With the internet and sites like this, something like this becomes news. It's not. Its just an idea that will be swept under the rug again in a few years.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Looking at the USA, I've seen cool ads for Alien Isolation for PS4 and Xbox one....and PC. Point is, I was very tempted to buy a PS4 this summer, but saw that many of the games were coming on PC. And the same goes for Xbox One. Right now, if a gamer owns a PC and Wii U, they are covered. There's enough games to last you a lifetime. I feel bad for folks upgrading their PS3 and Xbox 360 to their respective counterparts. You have a smaller library, and have to pay for online. Uh, no.

@Donutman : I mentioned the competition being with the iPhone awhile back, and I was destroyed by a super crazy fanboy on this site. But I agree with this. Right now, I game on my Wii U and PC. PS4 and Xbox One have put themselves up against PC'S. That's dangerous territory. You must offer a unique experience.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ability to Charm You...:

It's a different world today from when I grew up. There's much more violence and sex with most media today. Nintendo is attached to a totally different mind set (apart from something like Devils third) with providing a colorful, engaging alternative to what's out there. I think most kids today are into Call of Duty, or whatever is bigger and better. With access to the internet, and the chance for instant gratification, and the chance to engage others that own a non Nintendo system, this will be an uphill battle. The gamers that owned a PS1 that are parents today likely will turn their kids to a PS4 due to familiarity and brand impression. Essentially, Nintendo lost a generation of kids.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo 64x64: WCW/nWo Revenge:

@Tasuki: Wait, they have WCW Nitro on WWE network? Hmmmm...I've been hesitant to get it because the current WWE product sucks. Getting back on topic, Revenge was my first 64 game, and in high school, I found myself rotating between this and Warzone so I could use Bret Hart all the time. Oh, not having games like this today leaves a gaping hole. I'm really surprised we've seen no VC release of this, since WWE has the rights to all things WCW related. Could you imagine an online version of this game on Wii U VC? It would put any modern day WWE game today to shame.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

Woah, these reactions are ridiculous. It's an awesome controller, but if they can't devote resources to making this playable with all games. The user base is too small anyway. They just need to keep pumping out games. And not just retail, but VC.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Killer Instinct Gold:

Oh Nintendo Life! How you continue to punish me by showing me games that will never pop up on the VC! This just reminds me of all these great games we may never see again, especially the licensed stuff.

@Melkac: I don't see a complete edition popping up for a long time. Maybe never. If this was Eidos, EA, etc, you'd see it in 6 months at half the price with all DLC included. With Nintendo, I'll say 10 years from today. 😄 @WanderingPB. ....um what? That DLC is ridiculous! That's like an entire extra game!! I had hesitated picking up my pre order from Gamestop, but I'll be doing so tommorow. Thank you!

That's a nice ad. I actually pre ordered this a month ago. If you want to talk a bad commercial, look at the recent PS4 Destiny one. I guess they thought putting actual players voices in would appeal to me. I actually got de-hyped.

Cyberbotv2 commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:

Greatest system ever. The thrill of Eternal Darkness and Resident Evil haunt me to this day. And the controller was essentially a piece of clay in my hand. It molded to anyone's hands I put it in. And those games...NBA Courtside, Super Monkey Ball, Timesplitters, Metroid, Rogue Squadron, damn. Happy Birthday Gamecube!

Cyberbotv2 commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

@yvanjean: I don't think the average Wii U owner would purchase Watch Dogs this late at a 40 dollar price tag. My unrealistic price and packaging would be Ubisofts best bet at attracting Wii U owners. In the end, it doesn't matter because it probably won't sell well anyway. Ah well.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

It's looking increasingly likely that Super Smash will destroy the competition this holiday. I usually don't care much for the Smash games, but this is actually looking amazing. I have friends that buy consoles specifically for one game. None of them plan to update their PS3 or Xbox360 to their respective counterparts because of missing that big game. Specifically for my friends it's Halo 5. But SSB has these guys primed. I actually think Nintendo is building positive momentum. All of a sudden, I'm pumped about getting Hyrule Warriors, Bayonetta, SSB, and whatever virtual console surprises moving forward. I might pick up Watch Dogs too, if the gamepad is utilized. Too many games!!

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

@Agent721 : I think the EA one access is a sign of things to come. If it is successful, Activision, Ubisoft, Capcom, Bethesda, etc will all throw their hats into the ring. And as more folks sign up, I'm sure they will require you have an account....to access the game you just bought at the store. Dangerous territory.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

@TrueWiiMaster : Exactly. I thought I was the only one that disliked PS plus. But the Wii U requires a beefed up VC, and wider selection if anything. It blows my mind that no GC or N64 games are available yet. And then there are those rare games from way back in the day that the VC is made for. Stuff like Michael Jackson's Moonwalker, Superman vs Doomsday, etc. I guess I'll just keep waiting.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

Well, it could just be a timed exclusive with Microsoft. I was really considering an Xbox one or PS4 the last month but got scared off. Paying for online access is ridiculous. And that EA Access deal really freaked me out. If it works, I could see Microsoft and EA only allowing you to play games with that type of account. And what would stop Capcom, Ubisoft, etc to follow that route? I think I'll stand pat with my Wii U.

I literally could care less about any Mario or Metroid remaster. Eternal Darkness remains that overlooked property that for me was the best GameCube game ever made. And why would they only have one remaster set for 2015? Their schedule is likely to be barren.

Cyberbotv2 commented on Mario Kart 8 Passes One Million US Sales as Wi...:

@IceClimbers : If Nintendo thinks a five year old is going to look at a Mario amibo figure and ask his parent to buy a Wii U, they are out of their mind. The brand is strong but not that strong. The child will likely get Disney Infinity 2.0 because they recognize Jack Sparrow. Plus he/she could keep playing that on their PS3 with GTA. Otherwise, I'm glad sales are improving. All I know is every time I play Mario Kart online, there's always people to play it, so it must be selling. And if they want to push more million selling units, bundle Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta with their own Wii U and pro controller.
