DESS-M-8 commented on You Can Now Buy A Replacement Wii U GamePad On...:

If the gamepad is compatible with the NX and we get to port all our eshop purchases to the NX, this further concretes my midnight day one purchases of an NX.

If NX becomes what GameCube originally hinted at then the NX will be THE best console ever made. And if that also incorporates the Wii U gamepad into it's control ethos in addition to multiple New-New3DS' being connected to the home hardware next year then........ oh my!

I would pre-order in full right now.



DESS-M-8 commented on CoroCoro is Teasing a Big Pokémon Announcemen...:

@KTT It's nto a pipe dream. This is ultimately where Pokemon has been heading for the last 20.

NX finally produces the hardware needed to make that version of Pokemon possible. It just depends if Nintendo have decided it is time to make that game.

If they make it, it will sell MILLIONS of hardware worldwide very very quickly.



DESS-M-8 commented on CoroCoro is Teasing a Big Pokémon Announcemen...:

Maybe it's the Pokemon game they've needed to make for the last 20 years.

A full open world online rpg full home console version of Pokemon, that is also fully portable. All now possible on NX format.

A full MMORPG as an NX launch title would be HUGE and be the fastest selling home console of all time. Guaranteed. No argument.



DESS-M-8 commented on These Are Nintendo's Black Friday Hardware And...:

@Sakura I can't believe they tried to push Black Friday in the uk.

Sales in the uk have and always will be retailers getting rid of end of line products. More common is the endless sales that furniture stores and Currys (electrical retailer) do, claiming you are saving 100's off their usual price, then the small print shows the 'usual' price was only used for a 3 week period about 8 months ago.

Sales don't exist in the UK, just general inverse law of price compared to age of product.



DESS-M-8 commented on Pokémon Red, Blue & Yellow Are Coming To The ...:

@Xenocity WOW. you were wrong.

Level of interest and responses on this alone is a clear indicator of the level of interest.

I personally have wanted these since X and Y were released and I started downloading Gameboy Virtual Console titles. 3 of best games ever on the Gameboy.

Wonder if we'll get Gold, Silver and Platinum from the Gameboy colour during the 20th anniversary year too?



DESS-M-8 commented on Editorial: It's Far Too Soon to Go Download-On...:

@Kirk I never said he'd said that.

I was making a wild assumption based on the fact I couldn't be arsed reading it because it was such a ridiculously long post. It wasn't a comment relevant to what he was saying, it was a comment on how long the post was.



DESS-M-8 commented on Street Fighter II: The Definitive Soundtrack R...:

Ken's stage is still to this day one of the best pieces of music in video game history, Done properly with metal drums and distorted electric guitar, not the pathetic dancey arrangements found in later street fighter titles

Best music ever?

Whirlwind from Shinobi III by Yuzo Koshiro



DESS-M-8 commented on Editorial: It's Far Too Soon to Go Download-On...:

@Kirk Don't know and don't care,
I just found it amusing to debunk something so boring and loooooong with such a short comment.

Could never be bothered reading something that long on a forum.

If the jist was he says download is bad and retail is king, then he is wrong,
In my opinion, and also in the general evolution of media distribution.



DESS-M-8 commented on The Legend of Zelda on Wii U and 30th Annivers...:

@amiiboacid ooooooooooo name calling on an Internet forum!!!??? You are such a strong and intimidating creature, I will really think about what I say before i say it from now on.

You are utterly wrong. How does it bare NO similarities!!!??? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha
A long time in development zelda title, scheduled for release on a dwindling platform toward the end of its lifespan, near completion is mysteriously delayed for over a year!!!??? New hardware. is launching within that time frame.

Can you guess which zelda game I'm talking about?



DESS-M-8 commented on The Legend of Zelda on Wii U and 30th Annivers...:

@amiiboacid of course it's a fact. Nintendo would have to be utter idiots to not release it on NX, it is also the only reason why a gane that was all but finished in April 2015 is not now releasing until 2016.

It is exactly what happened with twilight princess. Why would you be angry about an amazing gane being a launch title on a new platform that you want to succeed???
Unless you think sticking with Wii U for the next 3 years is a much more viable business strategy?



DESS-M-8 commented on The Legend of Zelda on Wii U and 30th Annivers...:

Zelda Wii U is now zelda NX. At the very best it will see the wii u as a dual release like twilight princess.
This is a stone cold fact.

If you had a 30th anniversary of one of you biggest and most anticipated IPs, coinciding with the launch of your new hardware, you have a huge game for that IP 5 years in the making. Do you:
A: launch launch launch on that platform.
B: launch on your older failed platform that you yourself have openly stated you are scaling back support for?

If you are in camp B you are a fool, not a fan of nintendo and have no interest in seeing nintendo succeed and return toward their former glory rather than skating a close line to segas hardware legacy.



DESS-M-8 commented on Video: This Super Mario Maker Player Captures ...:

@shani Ahhhhh you half have a point but then back tracked at the end?

Practically it makes more sense to learn English as it more widespread.

But on a technical level, to learn a language from scratch with no prior knowledge, English is the MOST difficult time learn as it is the most complex language.

We carry more words with silent sounds, words with two meanings and the most complex sentance structure and uses of tense than any other language.

English is the hardest to learn.



DESS-M-8 commented on Video: This Super Mario Maker Player Captures ...:

@shani It has been proven linguistically that it is the most complex language to learn.

And it is exactly through the expansion of the British Empire why english is so widespread. Once is what so widespread other countries not part of the British Empire had to follow and English had become the dominant language worldwide.




DESS-M-8 commented on The Team Behind Earthworm Jim Would Like to Ma...:

YES bring earthworm Jim back. But only under the development of the original team.

One of THE best games ever on megadrive. The Christmas I got earthworm Jim and mortal kombat II was one of the best ever.

Even the case artwork looked cool.



DESS-M-8 commented on Video: This Super Mario Maker Player Captures ...:

@shani hahahahaha English is THE most complex language in existence. It is only so wide spread because of the British Empire.

The world would be a better place if it still existed, we'll just have to stick with the fact that English is the most widespread global language as a result of it.



DESS-M-8 commented on Retailers In North America Merge Wii U & 3DS L...:

I saw all this in a wal-mart in Florida last month on holiday, and didn't really pay it much attention.

Nintendo's always red, they should stick with it. Psychological red is the dominant colour in marketing and advertising and it IS their identifiable colour.
Sony blue
Xbox green
Nintendo red.

Using white or grey is just asking for people not to notice you, going blue with Wii U was a mistake. Go back to red.



DESS-M-8 commented on Fresh Nintendo Patent Shows Handheld Device Wi...:

@Morph they need to stick with the tablet. The gamepad if the best part of the wii u. The failure of the wii u is down to the fact that the hardware is too similar to the wii.

As a starting point they needed to drop the "Wii" the name was synonymous with junk and gimmick by the end of its life and worth nothing in terms of marketing.

It needed to be new, radically different and shouted loudly about. It wasn't. It was almost a wii, with revolutionary controller.

Re-invent the hardware, refine the controller, you an amazing console to succeed to the wii u



DESS-M-8 commented on Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero Has Been Delayed, "I A...:

@digga twilight princess delayed because we want to Polish it!! Of no wait, it's because we've overhauled the engine, developed wii controls ands want it also as a launch title for our successive console.

Mario bros wii 2 ended up being a launch title for wii u purely as mario bros wii u. Same with Pikmin 3.

Stop kidding yourself, nintebdo are a business and make decisions based on profitability. Why would you launch a aaa game on a console that's dead in the water when it has much more market potential being released on a console that is imminent and actually has a marketing budget?



DESS-M-8 commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

Two words.

"won't sell"

Won't sell in any decent numbers anyway, will be in and out of December sales charts in a week if it even makes it into the charts in the first place.

What this news does further support, is that Nintendo and it's partners are now in full throttle behind NX and a hardware release in the holiday season after its showcase at E3 2016 is almost a definite.



DESS-M-8 commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

@Octane of course they won't confirm anything. NDA's my good man. Have you heard nintendo say they're working on which specific titles for NX?
Can you 100% guarantee that they are developing a number of software titles?
Of course they are.
What a company reveals publicly that they are developing and what they are actually working on are two wholly different things.
Even more so when it comes to a soon to be released console.



DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo Is Merging Its Prized EAD And SPD Tea...:

@Mister_Wu the IP's that actually need completely reinventing are the whole roster of F-zero.
Captain falcon does and has always looked like what judge dredd would look like if he joined the Village People. F-Zero has the potential to spawn a number of spin offs, such as an open world bounty hunter game as captain falcon, except they refuse to drag them all out of their late 80's fashion and garb. Failing that, they refuse to drag them out from 2003 and the gamecube. Over a decade of decay and really prime for a relaunch. Want tontinker with something and change something, don't to something old and almost forgotten like fzero.

Do not start to change the history and while character of your characters that work!!!! Never again tell me yoshi is not a dinosaur!!!!!

It's like disney saying Pete the cat, isn't a cat, he's just a thing, a Pete if you will. Never a cat! Where did you get cat from!!??



DESS-M-8 commented on Nintendo Is Merging Its Prized EAD And SPD Tea...:

Yoshi is a dinosaur, that's how he was introduced in super mario world. Check the manual and the game itself. I might be wrong, but isn't the opening island called dinosaur island aswell. The confusion is that the large yellow coins in super mario world sporting yoshi's face were called dragon coins, mis-leading some to think he was a dragon.

Rebranding yoshi as a yoshi is either the mistake of an unknowledgeable youth staff responsible for the website, and the error not picked up on proof reading. Or it is nintendo attempting to reinforce their IP characters and strengthening brand identities.

Either way. Yoshi is a dinosaur.



DESS-M-8 commented on Video: Fan Recreates Stunning Build Of Ocarina...:

How amazing and groundbreaking ocarina of time was at its time of release was greater than this. Ocarina was THE first time gamers were given a TRUE 3D world for them to explore that had a real feel of freedom and sheer volume of space to explore. GTA borrowed heavily from this game. Zelda is nintendos go-to game when showing graphical power. Why they have relented from this since this game is a mystery. A TRUE graphical powerhouse from nintendo is begged for by this franchise. Zelda Wii U hinted at it.

DROP the cell shade once and for all and DELIVER just like ocarina did. OoT to this day has blown me away more than any other game I've ever aged on their respective release dates. Zelda and Nintendo owe to themselves to show the world what they are loved for.



DESS-M-8 commented on Early NX Reveal Was To "Reinforce Commitment" ...:

@Octane except that nintendo had NX running at E3 for third party developers exclusively and dome developers already have development kits. Some games are already confirmed for it, such as that dragon quest game or whatever it's called. Never played it. But it's huge in Japan and the import scene



DESS-M-8 commented on Poll: What Do You Think of the Super Smash Bro...:

Who ran sega in the mega drive and early saturn days? Those guys are the last time a console and in house first party company worked well. Sales didn't reflect that as their marketing department stinked, (sound familiar?) but Goddamn their back catalogue was pedigree
