DarthNocturnal commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (North America):


Did a quick search. As it turns out, if a Wii game could use the Classic Controller, you can use the Gamepad as a controller. Which, is pretty snazzy. But I think it's a feature exclusive to the digital Wii games.... although, that seems illogical, so, maybe not.

Either way, it's not why the game is $20. The other three are the same price.



DarthNocturnal commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (North America):


1.5 GB? No sweat then.

I believe all Wii titles can use the gamepad as a screen with which to play. But I'm not sure you can control the games with the buttons on the gamepad itself.

Also, the first three games were discounted as a promotion, for one week after they were released. It has nothing to do with missing functionality (because there is none.)



DarthNocturnal commented on Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamer...:


Oh don't worry. If/ when AC Syndicate (and maybe Zombi) runs like horse turds on PC, they'll get refund'd to Pluto. That should be a wake up call to the publishers to let developers finish their games.

If Arkham Knight's bad performance on PC was enough to get WB to pull the game from Steam, then Ubisoft needs to tread lightly from now on. Even the console version of Unity wasn't so great, from what I heard. And a 40 GB patch? That's not even laughable. It's embarrassing.



DarthNocturnal commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (North America):

+3 Kirby games I need to buy. 64 will be an upgrade. But I'd like to see how Squeak Squad is, and RETURN TO DREAMLAND, YES. Missed it entirely back on Wii.

Anyone know how big Return to Dreamland is? I already have Metroid Prime Trilogy on my Wii U, and while I'm not pressed for space per se, another big Wii game might change that.



DarthNocturnal commented on Video: Catch Up With Extensive Monster Hunter ...:

Capcom would be out of their minds to not try to keep the momentum up. I think we will be getting this.

The question is if there's a G version planned.The closer to release it gets, and the less the West hears of news for that region, the more likely we'll be waiting for X Ultimate.



DarthNocturnal commented on Super Smash Bros. Is Getting A Massive Update ...:


I would think that K.Rool has already received the bulks of his votes, if he is indeed getting any (I wouldn't doubt it). And maybe this will encourage more to vote? To let them know that a Mii Fighter outfit is a good start, but not quite.


Definitely some truth in all that. Although, it's not just in Smash/ Nintendo. I've seen similar complaints about many games. So it's less of a Nintendo thing, more of a gaming thing.

It's like how everyone thinks XBL is the place full of jerks, and every other online service is Happy- Happy Town. In reality, jerks are universal, and they exist across ALL online platforms. Probably equally too.



DarthNocturnal commented on Super Smash Bros. Is Getting A Massive Update ...:

I still need to get Dreamland 64. Thankfully, the stages are the cheaper DLC, even when buying for both consoles.

And I wouldn't rule out K.Rool. If anything, this might mean he's MORE likely.


The nature of replays makes that highly unlikely. Relays in Smash don't record actual footage, but button presses. And when they update the game with changes to character traits, there's a good chance that the videos would fall out of sync.

A good example is knockback. Let's say, in one version, you used one attack that had X knockback, then say, jumped and then followed up with an aerial. Then, after an update, that character received a change that increased knockback from that attack. The knockback was far enough away that your jump-then-aerial would've missed, because you were too far away. From there, the replay would be out of sync with what actually happened.

Thankfully, the Youtube upload option creates an actual video, so matches can be preserved long after their update becomes obsolete.



DarthNocturnal commented on Nintendo of America is Bringing Three 'Classic...:

Well... I guess I can upgrade Kirby 64. And I assume Squeak Squad was good. But I would've prefered Return to Dreamland. So, unless Wii counts as "classic".... I think I already have most of the Kirby I need.

I wouldn't say no to Kirby Tilt N Tumble on 3DS VC... they'd have to change how he jumps, but otherwise, should be doable.



DarthNocturnal commented on PewDiePie Fans May Recognise "Coolest Puzzle G...:


Perhaps a good number of those subs are people who just want to see whatever crazy antics he might try to pull? Also, haters.

If there's one thing that catches more attention then a train, it's a trainwreck.

It's a theory, anyhoo.


That's actually why I suggested that they shouldn't have mentioned him. Warrented or not, he has his haters, and that's enough to distract from the article's purpose.



DarthNocturnal commented on PewDiePie Fans May Recognise "Coolest Puzzle G...:

The cross platform multiplayer was all this article needed. I don't know much of this... PewDiePie? All I know is that he's popular, so it's "OK" to hate him.

(Disclaimer: I bear no ill will towards PewDiePie. As I said, I barely even know anything about him.)



DarthNocturnal commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand on Miiverse and Its P...:

I've used Miiverse for:

1: Smash 4 pic of the day (linked via Smash website).

2: Wind Waker HD's Tingle Bottle. My message? "I miss the Tingle Tuner".

While focus sounds like a good thing, I don't care for "Nintwitter". Or social media in general.



DarthNocturnal commented on Reminder: Grab a Mythical Diancie in Pokémon...:

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz....huh? Wait? A wi-fi event? I don't have to go to the store I can't get to?! About time. And for a legendary too. Been a few years since that's happened, last I checked.

I think I'm still missing a Gen V Legend or two. Still need Meloetta.



DarthNocturnal commented on Weirdness: Super Mario Bros. 3 is Rather Creep...:


I don't play the Soul (I assume you mean Demon/ Dark Souls) games (tried one... not really sure it's for me). I don't follow anything related to it. I can only work with what's put in front of me. That's not a lack of sense.

Lack of CONTEXT on the other hand...



DarthNocturnal commented on Review: Santa Factory (Wii U eShop):

First Subway and it's avacado commercials, then Shark Week's promotional commercials... and now this? What's with the sudden "Christmas in Summer" theme? Has Frozen cursed us? Are we never to let it go?! I NEED ANSWERS MAN!

If this is how things are now, then I DEMAND we make Summerween a legit event. Jack-O-Melons for everyone!



DarthNocturnal commented on ESL Announces Tentative Move Into Competitive ...:


From the Smash Wiki:

"Bowser is also always KO'd first during Bowsercide, meaning Bowser will lose instead of winning or tying if he performs it when him and his opponent are on their last stocks; this also releases the opponent and allows them to potentially recover back to the stage."



DarthNocturnal commented on Nintendo is Partnering With Facebook for Super...:

In reassuring that the winning map was free to download, they've scared everyone into thinking downloading levels isn't free... a move which would've gone over as well as paid mods in Skyrim.You can relax now, people.

Also, Facebook, meh.



DarthNocturnal commented on Japanese Devil's Third Site Details Online Mod...:

Is that 16 GB only for digital release? Nintendo hasn't really delved into "you need to download the rest of the game later" thing... sans perhaps Xenoblade Chronicles X. But that's optional.

Also... why f2p elements for Wii U? It makes sense for the PC release, but if people are already forking over $60+ on Wii U...



DarthNocturnal commented on Amazon Confirms Sale Window for Palutena amiib...:

Define "North America". Canada isn't the 51st state, as much as some US people THINK it is.

And generally speaking, isn't as good as .com when it comes to well... a lot.

EDIT: Egads, it's actually there. A broken clock is indeed right twice a day.



DarthNocturnal commented on Video: Watch Sonic Repeatedly Rescue Tails In ...:

@TwistOfFate619 @EarthboundBenjy

Right now, the creators are getting support for their Sonic 3 Complete Remaster on mobile. They already have some proof of concept work done. There's some supposed barriers preventing the game from being greenlit (a legal dispute unrelated to Michael Jackson's music or somesuch), but, talks are ongoing. And they have a petition to sign... somewhere.

I also read that they are interesred in bringing all 3 ports to other platforms, just like with CD. Mobile is just taking priority at the moment.
