DaveGX commented on You Fools, Blowing on NES Cartridges Is Not Th...:

@Lbosscher It isn't really easy to pull them out, but it wasn't in an N64, it was NES. You just kinda have to not have the cartridge tray or slot thing, whatever it is that goes down, just kinda try to keep that part in the middle, not pushed all the way down and kinda and see if you can feel near the sides where it's diagonal, and kinda pull those forward a little 1st if you can't grab the cartridge because that way those sides will be loose a little to where the cartridge should come out easier. But other than that, yeah here never really was any real solve to games freezing, so most times i never bothered with it and left the thing in and I was probably just lucky that kept it from freezing up most of the time. But an N64, I have no idea. I'd assume he cartridge should stick out and the game cartridge into there.

I'm honestly not sure why they really bothered with the redesign when you consider the placement and size of the additional analog (even though they're really more of a slidepad), C button or whatever. It looks like a rather awkward place for it like they just tried to squeeze it in air tight.. if anything perhaps the buttons scheme should've been identical to that of the Wii U GamePad, and perhaps with the same click

@kensredemption: 1st off, i never said anything about graphics, although it honestly wouldn't hurt Nintendo to take the initiate for a changve and take a step outsdie their comfort zone if they ever expect to gain back their so-desired 3rd party support. You simply can't sell what to the upperclass developers expectations with cheap hardware, simple as that. 2nd, define gimmick, because last I checked, 3D and motion at least where VR is concerned, are growing increasingly popular (Maybe not so much yet in gaming but in time it will progress and develop further) and won't be phased out anytime soon even where TV/movies are concerned, and would indefinittely work hand in hand for the future of gaming. Speaking of gimmicks, from your perspective, 3DS an, Wii remote, and nunchuck mightas well be gimmicks, but I'm not judging them as such seengs how i have no major complaints, maybbe minial whre "stereoscopic" 3D is concerned, (but that's all) and I'm all for 3D, plus any and every immersive experiences as possible because they're not gimmicks. Besides, who ever said or implied gimmicks over gaming, anyway? Certainly not me. Last thing, bebcause I game on 1 of each from the big 3 and try to balance out my game play weith each, no offense, but how exactly are "Ponys" and "Xbots" supposed to be puns/shuns on XBox and PlayStation gamers? Sounds rather silly if you ask me.

DaveGX commented on Nintendo Looking To Grow Wii U Audience To Tem...:

The solution to the problem is so obvious yet somehow Nintendo has been so blinded by its oldschool livinig room sociality thinking for years; It's called strong, hardware, not cutting corners to sell cheap hardware, thus putting severely limiting restraints and hesitation on those developers you want back. Otherwise, those upper-class 3rd pary devs will continue to cater to the upperclass companies they know they can rely on. Now I'm not saying Nintendo's hardweare isn't reliable these days, but compared to XBox or PlayStation brands, they truly are the underdog regardless of their long term history, in which they've only ever been so successful because of what little competition they had back then, so it was never an issue. But these days, I still say it's high time theyr needto think outsdie the box of this 'living room" concept for the younger generation growing attatched to XBox or PlayStation. After all, you get what you pay for; If you buy cheaper hardware to save some $, then don't expect the experiences to to grow any higher unless you're willing to pay more. And believe me I say it with some experience because I game on each from the big 3, and I try to balance them out which honestly isn't very easily, and each isn't withut their strengths and weaknesses, its own unique charm, either.

DaveGX commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Defends Wii U Prospects as Sh...:

ya know, it's times like these when we're constantly reminded how much Nintendo is really holding themselves back on the days of yesteryear instead of moving forward with hardware and technology. They're constantly saying that their consoles/platforms "have a long life ahead of them", except if this is so true then how come they always come up short a few years come next generation XBox or PlayStation? Or how about the constant focus on th younger generations and their "ioving room experience:", except that this has been happening since the retro era of the NES itself. (Yes, it even had a 4 controller port adaptor once upon a time) Think about it, it semi-started on NES, probably could've been possible with SNES, N64 was the 1st to actually have 4 ports of its own, followed up on the GameCube, the Wii gave wireless support as well as Wii U, which carries 1 flaw, that only 1 GamePad can be used at a time. It really is high sabout time they realized how much potential lies online, especially with the younger generation that jump into CoD, Battlefield, etc, a bit early. (but then again, really, who of us hasn't back in the day?) Now they're adding their Amibos, which in theory seems like like a nice idea for the younger generation, except that who really wants to hang onto so many easily losable or breakable figurines? And lastly, it all boils down to them ignoring the hardcore base once again, the real potential they could have without doing themselves in, thus producing even further potential they imaged possible and still being able to satisfy every audience on a variety of levels. And if that weren't enough, what happens in life after the Wii U GamePad, or even the 3Ds for that matter? The DS line-up followed GameBoy, and VR seems to be the next big thing developers are finally readyto prepare for, $ony took the 1st leap and we have no idea about Micro$oft yet. Nintendo could still invest and let its VirtualBoy's past be past because it's only mistake was that it was simply ahead of its time and VR wasn't really very popular/catching on back then.

DaveGX commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

@DESS-M-8 But if you really think about it, Nintendo's consoles are nowhere near in XBox or PlayStation's league because Nintendo is way too protective of their products, their hardware proves it, and it's rather reflected upon in their own IPs, really.. That's where the lack of hardware is coming from because their hardware doesn't meet a lot of developers standards for what's considered next gen.They turn every feature that could be so much better into mere's child's play and incomplete because they're too busy catering to the younger audience. Gamers don't want to be treated like children. Another problem is that in all honesty, I don't feel that they really listen to their audiences at all; What they do is listen and read feedback then take that feedback and produce their own ideas/version of it, not what their audiences really want. The only real reason Nintendo ever got as far as they did with their franchises is because there was hardly any competition back in the day. But now that there is they need to realize hat the times have changed and open up their own standards. They can't keep relying on their old-school ways of selling wishful thinking to everybody, the beliefs or hope that what they like is what we'll like.and such. If I were with them and would've done 1 thing different, considering the DS line, now that technology is further along enough, I would've looked into/invested time into 3D VR HMD possibilities earlier on as opposed to the 3DS, just not to jump ship but because more possibilities are open for them to do so and right this time around. And while it's pretty much a well known fact that the VirtualBoy was way ahead of its time and simply wasn't ready, that doesn't man Nintendo should ignore/walk away from the idea because by this point they can definitely produce something worthy and comfortable if done correctly, just don' try and build all the hardware/entire console onto the HMD, that was their 1st mistake that added the weight and made it uncomfortable.

DaveGX commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

@DESS-M-8 No offense, but back in the early/retro days, desie that I've enver really goteen into Spyro/SkyLanders,floating land masses or platforms were pretty much what Nintendo challenged us with in a Super Mario Bros game other than the sual midair platforms. I believe its perfectly suitable. Although Super Mario 64 did have its fair share of solid areas too in its own respect, so i'l give hem props for that as well also because it was the 1st 3D Super Mario to really challenge us. Galaxy 1 and 2 were challenging too but somewhat of a cakewalk in my opinion because of that experience with the exception of the more challenging levels.

DaveGX commented on This Design For A "Game Boy Evolution" Sure Is...:

How is this in any sense of the word an "evolution? This would basically be a portable Wii U GamePad, onl thnner and more prone to accidental damage. What would really be an evolution is, and not so as to jump ship, but maybe advance away from the touchscreen market and back into the VR/AR market with an HMD. 1 reason I say AR is because while walking outside earlier, i had this amazing idea considering Nintendo seems to want to utilize NFC; I figure lots of people also seem to want a Pokemon MMO or maybe new Snap, and while it might not very MMOish, picture walking around, venturing into wherever, and your odds of them popping out randomly or color/environmentally suitable places, and acting as they naturally should. Now picture capturing them, real-time NFC battles (or possibly online friends connected via Wifi (3G/4G via SmartPhone so as to cater to mobility/portability)) with voice and possible gestures, possibly even caring for them or alternate training means of allowing them to gain level-up experience. While it may take away some/a lot of the better features, this to me is just 1 example of hat an evolution should be.

DaveGX commented on Nintendo Is Working On The Next Mario Game, Bu...:

I have a particular idea what the next Mario should be, I'm not particular for another Galaxy because #2 felt like a similar, too close story to the 1st, and I actually really lik how well everything is laid out in 3D world like sort of a throwback to the originals, but I'm thinking the next should be super Mario Universe maybe? I know someone already posted concepts on YouTube, but I wouldn't have Mario visiting other Nintendo Universes. To me it'd make more sense to have different variation/alternate Universes of the Super Mario Universe in general. Basically there could be different scenarios of the Mushroom Kingdom/Worlds, Dinosaur Island, etc, variations /twists on all enemies and all items beyond we've come to expect or things we could only imagine. again these are just some basic ideas.

Great, yet another Mega Man disappointment arises only this time it isn't Capcom's doing for once! I'm so sick of these new hypes coming up trying to get everybody's hopes up. I'm so done with Capcom and all these inferior franchise products popping in hopes of revitalizing the franchise up until we can have something real/revolutionary to its legacy again, and I don't mean Mighty No. 9, either. (Yes, i'm well aware this isn't being made by Capcom,as either way I honestly have no incentive to buy it.)

Holy crap, $1270?! Even the new consoles aren't worth that much. Sorry, but that's asking too much even if it is a retro console because theyw eren't even really worth that much back then. Yes, I would totally buy a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed NES because this is the vintage look and not the remakes, just not at that price.

@stefenjc: You mean how if the Nintendo IDs are linked, right? I connect them differently; I'm still on a Nintendo WiFi adaptor via Virtual PC, XP Mode on Windows 7 Ultimate. As for y WII U, despite my having multiple consoles, (2 past gen 2 new current gen) I now reset the modem before directly connecting each. (Dumb, I know, but routers are a hassle for me, I'll never understand firmware configurations to have full control of any of that type of hardware, which is why i refuse to work with them)

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

@ollietaro Believe it's not about how good the tech is all you like, but aren't we already constantly upgrading to the next bit of advanced hardware every generation of video games has to offer anyway in order to keep up to speed and in the know? And this doesn't apply to just video games, it's also true with TVs, home/personal media, computers, etc. But as you said it's also true it's how you use it, but it's quite obvious we can't keep hoping past equipment that works best for us and continue live like cavemen. As for the devices, there's a Steam app, but I don't think it necessarily lets you play the higher end games, at least not on Android. iOS? Possibly. other than that, I don't think they have a handheld of any kind, their future is SteamMachine. (dubbed Steambox for the longest time) NVidia on the other hand, has somewhat of a handheld, called the Shield. But as far as providing serious competition with that thing? Unlikely. As for Steam itself, all i can really say is it honestly won't/doesn't really amount to any serious competition that Nintendo Network, XBox Live or PlayStation Network already provides. The only difference is their prices, which lower over time due to degrading replay value. In other words the more time passes along, as games get older, less and less people are playing them, they lower the prices to try and reel in the audiences for a while and stick with the current price until its replay value starts dropping again, or something like that. Now as for how expensive the tech is between WII U compared to PlayStation 4, I'm honestly not too sure, but I do know that as far as launch prices it's only $50; WII U launched at $350 while PlayStation 4's launch and current price is still $400, but the Wii U's pricetag is obvious as to why.

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

@ollietaro: I'm not sure you understand quite how it works. The phone companies wouldn't be managing it. 1st off it's Nintendo service so they'd be the 1s charging the monthly subscription, just like every other phone/tablet company out is their own provider; Version, ATT, Sprint, T-Mobile, etc. How do you think iPhone/iPads connect? through 1 of those providers. So it wouldn't work well for Nintendo to go the Apple way because either way you're going to pay a monthly fee to connect to whichever WiFi you're using, and I'm pretty certain Nintendo doesn't want to do that. Take that new Pokemon Bank, as a way to store Pokemon via their servers like cloud or whatever; it costs $ to keep them on those servers and keep them running. Also, i never said I was dsiappointed with the 3DS. My point was that ithe next gen handle most likely will never reach average tablet level ebcause Nintendo is unwilling to to work with the appropriate resources which without a shadow of a doubt would skyrocket their sales with the gaming history they've got. The things they need to realize is there's real competition out there now, and this isn'yt the 80s anymore, or the 90s. There's plenty more superior tech out there now, most likely holding plenty of untapped potential, which Nintendo could easily put to good use with the right resources, but they're unwilling to take the risk. As I pointed out earlier, hope and wishful thinking doesn't sell a reliable product, resources do. There's nothing wrong with them know how much to step it up as long as they don't overdo it like Micro$oft and $ony seem to do. the only problem between those 2 I see is that $ony feels Micro$oft as a real competitior/threat to their business, except that Micro$oft really isn't trying to, nor do they need to.

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

if they did this it would be pointless because the it'd be a tablet, and the 3DS is already somewhat a tablet but with 2 screens. Obviously the top screen isn't touchscreen, though. Still, since you mention the voice chat thing, yeah I could probably say the same but i think the next handheld would require more horsepower to handle it properly because I don't even think the WIi U game pad handles a good heft for it, either. And I'm still blaming Nintendo themselves for what happened to SwapNote for shutting us down rather than properly managing it. Parents who don't understand the tech are also no help, so at least in that respect Nintendo should also be doing their job to educate them. Again, it all comes down to the fact that Nintendo is unwilling to unwaver their old-school wishful thinking and produce hardware that might actually boost their sales rather than drive their fan base away, that's the problem. They're just stuck in heir own little protective bubble with their own rules and the rules of the real world don't apply, where nothing outside of it can interfere with the worlds and imaginations they create.

#21

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

@ollietaro: There's just 1 tiny little problem with Nintendo going Apple's direction and releasing the next handheld as a phone; Nintendo doesn't like to charge high or even monthly based subscription services, which is more or less what's holding them back. It would never work for them, setting aside possible resources when you consider that they won't even take a chance that actually managing more heavy processors or graphics could actually help boost their sales, even if they still have little intention to become mad graphic hounds like Micro$oft and $ony. Nobody ever said they had to, but then again nobody ever said it would hurt them or their fanbase, either. And no offense, but if they're going to continue to offer cheap software and hardware, then cheap service(s) is/are what we'll keep getting, and you only get what you pay for. 3DS is the best we're going to get until Nintendo's next gen handheld comes along.

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

@2Sang: Ehh no offense, but Apple isn't going to crush Nintendo. Apple can't even put a scratch or dent Nintendo whether it's the handheld/mobile or console market even if they tried simply because they've got nothing on Nintendo's long history in the video games department. Apple weren't interested in gaming when they 1st started, not to mention the amjority of Nintendo vets like myself still somewhat backing them. The only reason I say somewhat is because this generation's kids is pretty much where we were back in the 80s-mid 90s when Nintendo really didn't have hardly any competition, just Sega. There ar just times when grown people have/like to move forward to more suitable content, but that doesn't necessarily mean I'm about to throw away/dupe a respect for the core, cannon, nastalgic classics that I loved and grew up with.

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

@Windy You are aware that you can still send private messages via Wii U gamepad, right? Besides, this isn't the fault of people abusing the system, it's the fault of parents who won't take the time to monitor what their kids aqre doing online or take the time to educate themselves on the tech their kids are handling. Why do think they have to at least be 18 or older? Once again this is on Nintendo themselves; The entire service on 3Ds didn't have to be scraped, only those abusing the system deserve a console ban, JUST like Micro$oft and $ony does and does anybody cry about the way they manage their services? No. Why? because they know what they're doing, they're not still clinging onto oldschool wishful thinking to sell their products like Nintendo.

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

@MkTony7: Actually, it's not even really so much as Apple isn't popular anymore. I still see tons of people walking around with them, an iPad even. it's true that Android is increasing. However, I don't believe they're tablets are as popular quite yet as tablets, unfortunately, are still lacking the phone functionality other than apps like Skype, which is silly in my opinion because they both run on the exact same WiFi signals,. The thing about Apple and iOS is it just has that cutesy UI that still, unfortunately, seems to appeal to a rather large majority; For teens-young adults of course it's going to be the cutesy UI, apps, and game departments while the business end users will spend more time either on reading doc/text apps, using their phones as a regular phone, and presumingly small-time game apps in their spare time. Apple is still very much up there, and technology is already headed to the touchscreen UI anyway, just look at Micro$oft with WindowsPhone/Windows 8; The entire concept actually started with their Zune HD mp3 players, which still to this very, day baffles me as to why exactly they decided to scrap those things, and then like $ony, decided that all of a sudden we need to pay them service for "unlimited song listening", rather than continuing Zune software users the option of either purchasing that plan, simply listen/watch the purchases we make (this occurs on $ony Music/Video Unlimited as well as XBox Music/Video. (not sure about Windows 8)

DaveGX commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

Honestly, Apple's "i" generation really doesn't need a controller to "doom" any 1 of the big 3. Mobile simply doesn't have the horse power to drive out handhelds. Besides, this thing controller looks like an overpriced shell. Come on now....$100?! I'll grant Logitech a very minor benefit of the doubt only because they make good products, but no actual controller is worth this. fact of the matter is either Micro$oft or $ony could've very easily driven away Nintendo by now if they really wanted to. But they're way too busy competing with each other instead; $ony always dishes out unprofessional stabs at Micro$oft every E3 while Micro$oft tends to favor more of a straight forward, direct, facts sheet type approach, and doesn't really take a stab at anyone. It's the way it should be. It really all depends where the competative focus conflicts with theirs at the end of the day.

DaveGX commented on Pokémon Art Director Would Like to Simplify t...:

Hoenstly, what I'd like to see is at least take the mechanics back to simpler days of Red and Blue, maybe not that too far back, however, with some exception on them learning and forgetting moves. I've never really understood the logic behind only learning/remembering 4 moves because the Tv series never really seem to've followed that formula very much. That said, the moves/attack set should become legit,a big bigger maybe. Also, why not just have some moves/attacks automatically be forgotten in order to learn stronger/more advanced 1s that borrow from 1 or more basics allow those to become an automatic combination for a way they learn them, and forget the basic 1s as they become no longer necessary? Perhaps this could act as a means for them to become smarter, thus remember more moves progressively maybe?

As for the designs, some of the 3DS games we've seen, appear to take graphics either from Nintendo 64-GameCube level I'd say, take Super Mario 3D Land for example. I'm still just not feeling the same level coming from Pokémon. And so I still say they should bring this series to console, and definitely deliver some/more on textures, not just for the environments but for the Pokémon as well. This is something I feel that's still lacking very much in any canon Nintendo games, and it really wouldn't do them any harm to give them a believable/realistic appearance. If anything as an example, I always think of the cimematic from Super Smash Bros Brawl, how Mario's clothes look more like real clothes, like his overalls at least. That's the level of texture and detail I feel could help modernize them a bit more without doing any harm to their respectful franchises.

This truly is another low blow from Nintendo, as with sharing codes across forums. We might as well not share codes, period. I believe this discontinuation has more to do with leaking internet photos than offensive 1s, because all someone really has to do is remove that person from their list and problem solved; They could send you notes but you won't receive them. If that really is the case, 1st and foremost that's the parents' responsibility to monitor what their kids do online, and to handle/filter/block any inappropriate content/contacts, not for them to complain and inevitably tear the service away from everybody else.

DaveGX commented on Don't Expect To See A Mainline Pokémon Game O...:

I honestly don't see why other than possibly minimal resources that Nintendo relies on, why they couldn't get 1 of their other developers to work on a Pokémon Online RPG, MMO, whatever you'd like to call it. GameFreak isn't the primary developer, they develop for handhelds. I'd agree with others who brought up Colesseum as an example. Portability has nothing to do with why it couldn't be done right, or with DLC opportunities in mind, I also have to disagree that about the tablet factor, because contrary to what they believe or they're telling us, technically the 3DS falls under tablet functionality, as a handheld hybrid. People have been begging for a Pokémon online MMO for years and years. isn't it about time for Nintendo to step outside of their comfort zone and do it on the hardware that was made to handle it properly? Nintendo doesn't realize just how profitable a WII U/console MMO for Pokémon would be. The simple fact alone that people regardless of generation are still supporting the franchise already proves it.

@Furealz Yeah, I already know that on the 2DS itself it's all 1 screen on the inside and that the casing makes the appearance of 2. However, what I was saying is that somehow i don't think this spoof advertising (When it was workingfrom that url) of a 1DS maks much sense. In essence, all it would realy do is what the Wii U currently does but with 3DS service, except that it would expand onto iOS and Android.

DaveGX commented on Weirdness: This 1DS Spoof is Remarkably Well Done:

OK some how I wouldn't exactly call this spoof "remarkably well done" at all because DS, Dual Screens, means 2 screens, and would really only imply the use of 1 screen to begin with. if there's 1 screen it can't be considered a DS.

DaveGX commented on Iwata: No Chance Of Nintendo's "Precious Resou...:

Hmm...".consistently excellent in quality". See, there's another problem with Nintendo in comparing them to M$ or $ony; (not to go off topic) For 1, the majority of hardcore gamers don't see it that way, leading to 2, the most obvious reason why. They could do be doing so much more to up the look and feel of their games, texturing and all, but they won't it's a wonder the majority doesn't take them seriously. Just the smallest simplest changes alone would make all the difference, but they're unwilling to compromise and take a risk that that just might buy back the audiences they lost and are trying to reach out to, like the developers for 1. They can't just "lol" their way to victory forever, guessing what people want and doing their thing their way without actually listening to what people really want. This is exactly what's killing them right now.

DaveGX commented on Iwata: No Chance Of Nintendo's "Precious Resou...:

I want to address the few people who responded to my initial comment; The problem isn't me. I think the point everybody is missing here is that this isn't a case of "3rd parties can put their game on any platform", no. This is a case of fitting 3rd party chars into those 1st party universes to which they clearly don't fit in, and Nintendo is unwilling to do the same. It has nothing to do whether it's 1st or 3rd party. THAT'S what I see wrong with this picture, Did M$ or Bungie have a problem with Tecmo for the little content each provided 1 another? No, they made a compromise; An unlockable spartan for Dead or Alive 4. Unlockable Hayabusa armor in Halo 3. (Granted OK, this once could've been considered 1st/2nd parties working with 3rd party. Regardless, do you see my point?? Neither's chars/properties fit 1 another's universe(s).)

DaveGX commented on CoroCoro Magazine Reveals "Mega Evolution" and...:

So, I just took a look at the picture above to find this Pichu-ish looking 1 a few people were mentioning. Honestly, i don't think it looks like it belongs to that family, really... hard to say. Instead of looks more like a combination of Raichu and Marill, kinda. Though I'm honestly not really so much up to dte with them past the 2nd-3rd gens, so I'm sure most everyone can probably/might be able to point out closer resemblances. Link me up if so.

Heh. Ya know the irony here is when MegaMEwtwo was 1st shown they said it wasn't an evolution, rather a new form. Yet now it's a "Mega" Evolution. So technically it'ss till an evolution, which I kinda feel i was right to assume all along. However, just how these will play out and if they even decide to keep these "mega" names remains to be seen....

Wait, wait....So it's OK for Nintendo to accept other developer's chars into their own games (Super Smash Bros Brawl, Universe)(Solid Snake, MegaMan, etc) but they won't go multiplat with their own chars on other platforms? No offense, but anyone see something wrong with this picture?

DaveGX commented on Soul Calibur II HD Online Not Announced For Wii U:

This is kinda disappointing in a way. Though you have to admit, whether you're like me and not all that good at fighting games or not, Link kinda has some cheap attacks, lol. I was always winning fights with that grapple flip thing he does and knockin em off the stage.

DaveGX commented on Miyamoto: Mario Will Likely Return To Single-P...:

Actually, split screen would be great, too in the sense of 1 on TV, the other on GamePad, between just Mario and Luigi because it'd encourage dual type play ideas I've thought of. Basically you'd have link-up type attacks that just extend on what 1 player can't do alone; An example would be maybe 1 player gives he other a higher boost lift-off, or maybe if the flying-type items are done right 1 player flies and the other maybe is carried but can use a fire flower, etc, or maybe with the boomerang suit you toss 1, 2nd player tries to hop on top of it, rides it and gain,an item like fire flower or the snowy 1 would have you shooting in multiple directions. A crazy idea, I know, just trying to think outside the box, really.

DaveGX commented on Poll: How Important is Dual / Second Screen Ga...:

I'll simply say this about about dual screen game play; I really don't want my 2nd screen/GamePad getting in the way of my TV, or honestly taking my eeys away from the TV for lots of the game. if games can manage ti keep the 2nd screen thing simple I'd be perfectly happy/acceptable with that. Not that there's anything really wrong with the idea or anything, but I've found that some of my games lately, Tetris Axis, Super Mario 3D Land,my eyes only have to be on the main screen at best. Honestly it's not really the best feeling when game play is happening on 2 screens at the same time, such as the sense in some of NintendoLand's mini games, and you just feel like you're missing out on experiencing the important content.

DaveGX commented on Miyamoto: Mario Will Likely Return To Single-P...:

I honestly have to say that despite feeling like a 2nd Mario 64, the galaxy series has actually been quite the challenge at times; Just take the comet courses or both finding and acquiring the green stars from Galaxy 2. and yeah, have to say 2 that Galaxy rather felt like a tired rehash from the 1st, and Yoshi was a bit difficult for me to work with at times. As far as the "New" series goes,can't really say i'ma huge fan, it just gets boring too easily. 3D land I'm still working on, late start. it's actually kind of hard to judge this 1 because it's not really bad, but not all the best, either, though i'm sure 3D World should ease the controls for me, not that there's anything wrong on the 3DS, just slightly hard to handle on handheld, that's all. All that said, I don't think the next should be named galaxy 3, but could take some concepts from it expanding on that. I also don't think new or continuation and slapping 3D makes a lot of sense when you consider that same 3D that makes the 3DS special doesn't exist on the WIi U. What I'd really like to see is maybe a whole new game that's maybe a blend/compilation of everything that's ever been done on a core, platformer Mario game, items and all, plus concepts that haven't been done yet. I could see Mario Universe as a suitable title, and I do also have to agree it'd be nice to having a much more open world again like Super Mario 64, just - all the guessing where to find the corresponding course star(s),maybe have all areas of a course accessible but harder to access depending on where you start. The last and only other thought I have is as I keep hoping for maybe shift the overall series over to being like it originally was, Super Mario Bros, but in a 66/Galaxy (maybe even 3D Land/World) kinda way with some brand new twists/concepts, similarly to being able to play with more than 1 person on the same screen like 3D World will do; It's high time Mario start sharing the lime light with his brother, Luigi again, and I don't mean in the same sense as mediocre 3DS titles, I mean true, core 3D Mario platformers. At least give us more incentive to want to play same screen multiplayer with them.

DaveGX commented on An Official Mega Man [Board] Game is Coming!:

@jedisquidward: How do you figure not really? MEga Man is a side scrolling game, not a fighting/battle system type game. As I said, it really doesn't fit the TCG genre or boardgames for that matter. Think about it. MEga Man is the only 1 able to use other enemies weapons (except for Zero if you count the X series), but they can't use his. How exactly is this suitable for a TCG or board game?
