Dauntless commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

I'm sure Nintendo will continue to make fun games but I don't think they will change Video Game Lives. The only thing that will be changing gamers lives is Virtual Reality and that is if it works, and becomes affordable.
On another note I wonder if Nintendo is starting a trend where their codenames sound better than the final names.



Dauntless commented on Nintendo Of Canada Hikes Up amiibo Suggested R...:

I didn't feel like buying it at $13.99. I sure am not going to at $15.99. In all fairness this hike actually puts it closer to the US $12.99 with the current exchange rate. But this is something that should be US $9.99 to begin with, and Canadians didn't get a raise to be able to afford higher prices after the Loonie dropped. I don't see the appeal in expensive Chinese plastic. I would rather spend my money on more games.



Dauntless commented on Nintendo NX Will Be About Creating "Fun New Wa...:

While I don't doubt that Nintendo will make fun games I find it hard to get excited about a new platform. Its going to be hard for me to justify buying another one of their systems just for a few really good first party titles.



Dauntless commented on Iwata: Embracing Smart Devices Has Made Us Eve...:

Seeing fanboys hate the idea is amusing. Most of you have a smart phone. By expanding this gives you another platform to enjoy Nintendo games on and you're upset?
Think of all the different controllers you have used before from past systems ( NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii, Wii U). Each one rearranged buttons in a different formation, and or added analog sticks, triggers, motion, touch, etc. Each system had stellar software that was designed to match the controller and you were open minded enough to try a different controller each time unlike the Playstation crowd.
They will design the games to match the touch control scheme. You're not going to play Super Mario 3D World 2 on mobile. You will be getting something that takes advantage of mobile's strength.

Surprised? The Wii U only has a little more than 2 years left in its 5 year life span. Sega stuck around longer than most other publishers. Expect the Wii U to wind down. A few more big AAA first party titles and its over.



Dauntless commented on Weirdness: Club Nintendo Members Attempt to Se...:

Thanks for the idea. I listed mine on eBay for $5. I don't have a 3DS so I have no use for it. Nintendo should have offered a choice between a WiiU gift or a 3DS gift for those that don't have both systems.
Do you really think I'm trying to get rich by selling this code for $5? Do you really think $5 is going to make the world of difference to me? You self-righteousness type make me sick. Its not like I'm hording the supply and preventing you from enjoying it.



Dauntless commented on Amazon Opens Pre-Orders For Super Smash Bros. ...:

What really sucks about this adapter is that it doesn't come with GameCube backwards compatibility. The Wii was just a slightly upgraded GameCube. If the Wii U is similar enough to offer Wii Backwards compatibility it should also be able to do GameCube. Its sucks that this adapter will only be used for 1 Wii U game and not the many great GameCube games that are out there. This is like rubbing salt into a wound. All the pieces are pretty much there to enable backwards compatibility but Nintendo is too stubborn or lazy to do it as usual.



Dauntless commented on The Club Nintendo Reward Details Are In For Au...:

Nintendo's club rewards really suck now a days. They pretty much have nothing except digital downloads ever since they took the shop down a while back.
Its a good thing I cashed out just before that, when they had the Super Mario Accessory Box listed. There hasn't been anything good on since and the platinum reward wasn't great either.

Would it kill them to release Excitebike 64? I've been waiting only since the Wii days. Its not like the title is owned by anyone other than Nintendo.



Dauntless commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

This sucks because there is nothing special about a digital game that could have been bought with a couple of dollars. And those that already have all the games being offered get screwed. Sadly I will not be looking forward to next years prizes with the direction Nintendo is headed.



Dauntless commented on Talking Point: Keeping It Simple Helped Ninten...:

Nintendo had the right approach for all the gamers that were home and not at E3. Watching a live stream of a Press conference is boring. Nintendo's approach of prerecorded video footage is much more entertaining for everyone else sitting behind a monitor.



Dauntless commented on E3 2014: Ubisoft Admits to Holding Back Comple...:

They have a game done for 6 months and they are holding it back until more units sell? That means its not going to be released. Nintendo is doomed. Its bad enough when third parties don't make games for their system, but it is even worse when they do and decide not to release it.



Dauntless commented on Video: The Latest Mario Kart 8 Commercial is P...:

I guess its official. The case will be red and banner blue on the NA release. I shall put it into a blue case to make it look more proper. Too bad they didn't change the banner and number 8 to red because it would have looked good than.



Dauntless commented on Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition Software Bundle C...:

The shell looks cool, but I don't need any more plastic crap. I'm not disappointed about not getting it, but I am upset that Nintendo would do something like this and only release it in one store location of an entire continent.
Seriously how can they pretend this is exclusive when we know every where else gets it the normal way from regular stores? This isn't 1980. Thanks to the Internet we are more aware of world events.
The good news for those that really want it is that the plastic shell isn't region locked and you can import it. Of course the weight and size will add to the shipping cost and you'll have to sell off the game that comes with it on It should still be cheaper than visiting New York if you're not near by.



Dauntless commented on Video: Nintendo Shows Off The Wii U's Forthcom...:

Quick boot sounds great if it doesn't mean standby mode. When I turn something off I want it to be off and not use more than 1 watt of vampire power/phantom load.
The future update that makes games load 20 seconds faster will be the real winner.



Dauntless commented on Feature: All the Important Details From the Ma...:

After watching the direct I am definitely much more interested in this game. It looks like Nintendo put a lot of effort into making it which is good because since the Wii days they usually take the half-assed approach.



Dauntless commented on North American Wii U Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set B...:

The red game case still has the blue banner and looks ugly. This is one of those games that will need a case swap for a blue. Fortunately Nintendo does sell the official dvd cases on their parts website if you don't have a crappy game to swap with. Why couldn't they just colour the banner & number 8 red to match the case?



Dauntless commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

Nintendo doesn't have too much to show. E3 is expensive and Nintendo is too cheap for that, especially when they don't have much to show. They were expecting third parties to fill in the gaps between first party releases. They weren't expecting to be the only publisher supporting the Wii U.



Dauntless commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:

Part of Iwata's problem is his devotion to Hiroshi Yamauchi. Yamauchi was a product of his time and that time is gone. You either adapt to the future or time leaves you behind. Nintendo is getting left behind. They need to get rid of Iwata. Hes a nice guy but doesn't really understand the modern age.
