Dankykong commented on Poll: Nintendo's Free-to-Play Experiments - Ar...:

I've put in $1 in the Badge Shop. These games are fine, there's no way to ruin others fun if you cheat the games, except in a streetpass sense. But even then you usually don't ruin anything. Also most of these things I find fair priced. I'm glad it's not $5 for 10 claw game tries, it feels like that's how it would be for a PS/XB game tbh. Plus at first they made it seem like you'd have to pay and they'd rarely give you a free game but it's the opposite, which is nice.

Guess they made this game for Japan and just tossed it out there for us too because no where but there did it make any impact.
On a side note, I'll always find it strange that Japan even cares about western games like CoD, AC or Fallout. Like anything but those 3.



Dankykong commented on You Can Now Buy A Replacement Wii U GamePad On...:

Double gamepads lag the system horrendously. Someone tried in a YouTube video once somehow by tweaking the system to allow it to accept both pads, then showing a couple games drop to 0fps and struggle to do much of anything half the time with the color of the screens being distorted a bit and fuzzy. Also I may be wrong but I thought Sega also mentioned it didn't work because they tried to do it in Sonic All Stars Racing for the WiiU and it was lagging the game. On the other hand in a few articles around the internet, they're saying Nintendo has said the WiiU DOES support 2 gamepads at once, but obviously no implementation whatsoever.



Dankykong commented on Editorial: It's Not Fun to Criticise Nintendo ...:

This year has been the year for catching up for me. Everything I have that I got during the abundance I've been playing and finishing up. I barely sell any WiiU games in the store I work in anymore. Most days will go by where I sell none and my store is a really busy store.



Dankykong commented on Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U):

Knew it'd end up bad. Not even bothered either. People are forcing it so hard "OMG BUT DAISY AND ROSALINA AND SPRIXIE", but nothing, it's an empty game that online couldn't even save. Like Splatoon how was saved.



Dankykong commented on Site News: A Brief Update on Our Mario Tennis:...:

Well basically this turned out exactly like I imagined. Lackluster 1P mode and online is holding it up. That's what you can say about most of the online Nintendo games. Splatoon & Mario Kart come to mind. Smash is probably the exception there. Why do they do this? "Oh you wanted Online games? Okay" makes online but removes P1 mode's excitement. It always goes that way "Oh you wanted virtual reality at it's earliest stage?" gives motion controls takes away controls that make sense "Oh you want better handheld graphics from the future?" gives you 3D makes you loose your lunch



Dankykong commented on Amazon Lists Pokémon Red, Yellow And Blue At ...:

Oh great it costs just a tiny bit more than the other GB games because they had to tweak it for trading. I'm not buying it anymore. Screw it. Pikachu frown 7.8/10 costs too much another clickbait article Awww nooooo dont want it.



Dankykong commented on Review: Rodea the Sky Soldier (3DS):

This game is a stupid mistake and disaster. 3DS & WiiU versions are awful and the only one that's supposedly any good is the outdated version which you can't buy separately. Pointless. How do you bomb 2/3 times on the same game? It seems like a lame excuse now that "i made the game during the Wii era" but the WiiU era has been going for a while, and you also still screwed up the 3DS version.



Dankykong commented on Poll: Did The Nintendo Direct Comeback Fire on...:

I thought the whole thing was a little blah. I wasn't overly impressed with the presentation, it wasn't holding my excitement the whole time, but I like that there's a variety of things coming so not everyone is playing the same thing like it's been on and off. I'm really excited about Starfox, FE, and Pokken, even if 2 of those two are upsetting a lot of people right now lol. DQ is on my watch list now. I'm more ecstatic about replaying Pokemon Red than I expected as well. Also glad everyone else isn't angry like it's been.



Dankykong commented on Video: Nintendo Makes a Holiday Pitch for Wii ...:

I can't believe I saw this and another ad on TV from Nintendo. First off I don't watch TV, so the one time I did I was shocked to see what I saw. It made me feel like I haven't seen an ad from them since that commercial where they roll up in the smartcar and say "We would like to play" and suddenly the westerners have been enlightened. Mild nostalgia.



Dankykong commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 12t...:

When you line it up like this there are stuff that will be way more satisfying than I realized. Pokken, StarFox, RBY, DQ and Fire Emblem. It'll give me lots to do and everything else will keep others busy for a while. Not so bad!



Dankykong commented on Parent Trap: Oft-Forgotten Wii U Features That...:

It's just like the Wii in many senses. "It's a family console" but it never had the comp disks or cheap game bundles (not counting console ones) that other systems had that would attractive families. Like someone posted above the Hasbro board game comp for PS4. Nothing like that would have ever come to the Wii or the WiiU and been as noticeable. But the WiiU still ended up being my main console even with a PS3 & 4. For one thing all my grown friends still enjoy playing these kinds of games with me, the backwards compatibility is great for me because I didn't end up getting to play all the Wii games I wanted and still bought some used games during recent times, I only had to buy 1 Pro controller, the rest are things I already had so that's nice that they didn't make me buy 100 new controllers. I imagine the NX will allow the WiiU Pro as a "backwards compatable" controller and possibly the gamepad as well. Lacking a DVD/BluRay has never effected me, at this point it feels like I need it even less that I may have with the Wii. The whole thing does what it's suppose to and has what I need. Sometimes I even look at my PS3&4 and think I don't actually need them because the WiiU takes care of like 90% of my gaming needs. It lacks a bit of naughtiness and violence at times that I want. I can ignore the lack of troves of third party for now.



Dankykong commented on Rumour: Leading Japanese Game Company Kidnappe...:

If it is Sega that surprises but also doesn't. No wonder everything is so questionable and jacked up. But it's shocking because why would you torture your employees? What is the reason Sega would even need to do that? Why would ANY video game company do that? Also why haven't Nintendo & Namco been touched? I can understand Nintendo a bit maybe since N64 days but before that it seems like they didn't do PR events the same way and it would have been possible. Namco? Why are they exempt? I'm just like who else lol Capcom, Konami, Atlus, Taito, Square Enix and Spike Chunsoft? Or was saying "everyone but them 2" taken a little too literal?



Dankykong commented on Review: Yo-Kai Watch (3DS):

Oh god, offering friendships. Something that never works out well. Everyone seems to be giving it roughly a 7 rating. But I'm still interested. Everything people have been excited for lately has been getting a 7....
