daveh30 commented on Nintendo of Europe Confirms Mario Kart 8 Limit...:

I really hope this comes to NA... I'd be all over it. Nintendo really should do more Collectors Editions for their games. They have the perfect franchises for it.
(as an aside, the Grand Wizard Cartman Statue that came with the South Park Stick of Truth Collectors Edition is super sweet....)

Part of me wants to be sad about this, but truthfully, if you hadn't told me I never would have noticed. Haven't played the Wii online in years... probably 2009 was the last time. Couch MP is still the way to go with Nintendo franchises.

And this is exactly why calls to drop the gamepad are misguided. If they would actually use the thing, it has the potential to offer a superior gameplay experience. Without the gamepad, the Wii U is just the underpowered console option.

That Dr. Mario promotion is nice, but it would be even better if owning Dr. Luigi on your Wii U got you a free copy of Dr. Mario for the 3DS VC. hopefully this promotion makes it to NA this week as well.
I'll be picking up the Lego Movie game (saw the movie this past weekend... its hilarious.) but i'll probably end up getting it on PS4 instead of Wii U, just for the trophies. Lego games are always an easy (if time consuming) Platinum...

@WYLD-WOO "Good to hear some people in Canada got the game way before anyone else in NoA, tho."

I have a buddy who owns Eu and Jap 3DSs and imports a lot of games. He's had the European version since before Christmas. When I didn't like the NA demo, he insisted the full version was better and that I should try it.

@WYLD-WOO I have, in fact, played the game. It's dumb. But i also don't like JRPG's... never understood the whole Japanese pre-pubescent melodrama thing. or menu based combat. seriously, WTF?

And the very first review of this game that pops in a google search, trashes it.
"If Bravely Default trying to be a modernized old-school JRPG represents anything in this modern age of gaming, it’s that the old-school JRPG is a genre that has had its time in the sun. We shouldn’t grasp at and try to recreate the shock of Aeris dying, the complex narrative of Xenogears, or the lauded mechanics of Chrono Trigger. We should try to create a fresh experience, but instead we have Bravely Default, trying to pass off its outdated systems, cookie-cutter character stereotypes, and slow, mostly boring story as nostalgia. The game lives up to its name — it takes courage to release such a bland, regular game and aggressively pretend it’s anything more than that."

Guess maybe the internet isn't as unanimous on it as you thought?

The day Nintendo gives up hardware and starts making games for Sony, MS, or shudder iOS platforms, is the day I embrace my old age, give up video games, and turn my attention to the Sunday crossword puzzle. For me, there is no video game industry worth spending time or money on without Nintendo Hardware.

I downloaded that Bravely Default demo, just out of curiosity, even though I know I have no interest in it. I lasted about 10 minutes with it... don't understand how people can stomach that jrpg garbage. You kids have fun with that one, I'm going back to CastleStorm and Dr. Luigi...

daveh30 commented on Talking Point: New Year Resolutions for Nintendo:

I'd like to see a universal trophy/ achievement system across 3DS & Wii U similar to what's implemented on the PS3 / Vita. I never really cared about them until recently, but I have found they keep me coming back to the same games more often. I had played Sonic All Stars Racing to death when it came out on the Wii U, but hadn't felt any desire to play it in months. Last week it was offered as a free download on Vita as part of the Plus program, and I haven't been able to play put it down, trying to get those last couple of trophies...

daveh30 commented on Rumour: Minecraft Is Already In Development Fo...:

Too little, too late. I love Minecraft and will play it on pretty much any platform they'll give it to me on, but I'm only gonna buy the game so many times. Wii U is the platform I really want it on, but I already have it on PC, PS3, Android, and by the time it ever shows its face on Wii U, I'll most likely have it on Vita as well. the game has been around for a long time now, across multiple platforms. I think any who wants to play it, has. No one is specifically waiting for a hypothetical Wii U version.

@Ootfan98 absolutely, because it's not a collection of these games. its wario ware style mini games based on levels from these games. whether or not you own or have played the originals is totally besides the point, other than the nostalgia factor. This is very much its own game.

Playing this now... theres actually quite a bit of content. multiple stages from each game to unlock, with different set challenges, different modes... full Miiverse integration. I'd say it's well worth the price
