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.



Dauntless commented on Nintendo Force Magazine Secures Second Year Wi...:

With Nintendo not doing so well, little game news to report because of a lack of third & first parties titles, and how printed game magazines become irrelevant with game web sites like this one, I don't think there is a bright future for this magazine. But, I wish the backers the best.



Dauntless commented on Club Nintendo Adds Some Awesome Premium Mario ...:

Very similar to the NA 2012 platinum reward. From what I can tell the cards are identical except for the stars. The platinum version doesn't have the circle border around the stars. The box for the platinum version is also red and gold, not black and gold. Other than that, the platinum version is labeled "Platinum Playing Cards", not "Premium Mario Playing Cards". There isn't much reason for club members who already got the platinum cards to get this. For everyone else this is one of the nicest card decks I have seen.



Dauntless commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:

Those of you who are complaining about the poor devs that are going to skip the system because of piracy, wake up. They already skipped the Wii U (without a piracy problem). Even with piracy the Wii had more third party support than the Wii U does without piracy.



Dauntless commented on Best Buy's 20% eShop Card Discount is Back:

@SirQuincealot I'm not trying to mislead. I can't seem to find any listing for eShop cards on, but have no trouble finding it on Without an official listing on their Canadian web site its anyones guess which retail stores across the nation will actually have them.



Dauntless commented on Famicom Remix 1 + 2 Coming to Retail in Japan:

When they announced the remix part 2 so soon I had a feeling it was 1 game split into 2 parts. Possible to make the digital price seem lower. Well since I haven't picked up the first one yet, I'll wait for the combo disc to make it over to NA.



Dauntless commented on Nintendo UK Launches a New "Nintendo Girls Clu...:

@Senario, I don't consider my self sexist. I know a lot of Nintendo's games are multi age and gender. But if you look at Nintendo's past commercials they have been focused on advertising their games to little kids, and now they're are creating a girls club? There is nothing wrong with catering to those audiences except that I don't fit into those categories.

I have a Wii U. So all I'm interested in hearing from Nintendo is the amazing content that is coming to the Wii U. That is where they're lacking. Their focus tends to be on the 3DS. I don't care about the 3DS. The kid & girl advertisements also don't help to persuade me.

It is what it is. If Nintendo thinks thats their prime audience thats fine. If I don't invest in their systems I won't care what they do because it won't affect me. But, I have a Wii U and for the remainder of this gen all I want to hear about is the amazing content they're bringing to the Wii U. Instead they come up with this bright idea of a 3DS girls club.



Dauntless commented on Nintendo UK Launches a New "Nintendo Girls Clu...:

The Wii U is my last console. Instead of Nintendo showing me their commitment for their console and boosting my faith in them, they do even more 3DS handheld stuff. It was bad enough for the adult males that their focus is on little kids but now they are more interested in the young lady demographic? This is a company that doesn't consider me a customer.



Dauntless commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

This isn't shocking. Nintendo is famous for droughts. This will be my last console though. I don't care for the micro transaction direction that Xbox or Playstation is going and Nintendo always misses out on a lot of third party titles. I'll pick up what ever good first party titles come out and consider the Wii U my new Dreamcast. Despite the Dreamcast being a commercial failure I really like a lot of the games on the system. The same will be true for me of the Wii U. But I'm done with consoles. I'll be gaming on the PC only, and picking up a few Wii U titles while it still is supported until its end in 2017.
