DerpSandwich commented on Out Now: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, amiibo a...:

Days like this I miss being a kid. I would be absolutely freaking out with excitement right now. I send a jealous shake of the fist paired with a wink to everyone who's going to be spending this entire day just destroying their eyes and hands.



DerpSandwich commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

For me it feels like a D, so I suppose after sales performance that pushes it down to a solid F in my book. I'm really happy that so many people are enjoying the games on the system, but I'm just not satisfied with my Wii U. I feel like the games just don't live up to Nintendo's standard, and the ones that do are unfortunately for me just not the sort of games I'm interested in. This is basically my Pikmin 3/Netflix machine.

I'm always rooting for the system to turn around, and for Nintendo to announce some games that interest me. I just know that whatever they come out with next, I won't be buying it at launch.



DerpSandwich commented on Target and Best Buy Nintendo Deals Live Now, K...:

One of these days there will be a Nintendo system I don't buy for a few years into the generation. Then, finally, I'll get in on a Black Friday deal and get some insane prices on the system and a big pile of games. It'll be nice.



DerpSandwich commented on Eiji Aonuma Confirms Majora's Mask 3D Has Been...:

I know a lot of people are coming to Nintendo's aid in this regard, but there's nothing that will convince me that three years isn't a preposterous amount of time for this type of project. Even with a significantly smaller team it shouldn't even take as long as the game's initial development time, much less twice as long.

If it came out and actually had a lot of extra content it would be one thing, but I'd bet my bottom dollar we're going to get some polished graphics and some new features--no actual content.



DerpSandwich commented on The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask Confirmed F...:

I've played Ocarina of Time so much over the years that I didn't have any use for the 3DS version, but this is something that I'm actually interested in. Above everything, I hope this does well enough sales-wise to communicate to Nintendo that we still want unique, emotional, atmospheric games.



DerpSandwich commented on Expect To See More Spin-Off Titles Like Hyrule...:

I've got an "I'll believe it when I see it" attitude when it comes to publishers claiming that they're going to have a lot of games within a given period of time (Nintendo ESPECIALLY), but I must say that at least they're giving us details of their new plan and reasons why this might actually be somewhat true.

They've always been famously low on manpower though, so I'm not quite sure how they're going to juggle this many smaller titles as well as working on the big ones. Hopefully it's like he says and they're just getting a lot of outside help.



DerpSandwich commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

Simply by having this be the first real Direct since June, Nintendo has passively built hype and expectations for it. So realistically, that means get ready to be disappointed, right? ;)

But hey, I'm still excited though. That's the life of a Nintendo junky...



DerpSandwich commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Lose a bit on the system, make it back with the games. Drop that price like it's hot. Can't afford to lose that much money per system? You'll lose a whole lot more overall when no one buys it.

I do think that $300 is a good price when bundled with those games, but $250 is magic. Just seeing that 2 (and not when it's one cent away from not being a 2 anymore) will really get people moving. Even some of the most casually-interested gamers will pick it up with one or two games for $250.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

In typical Nintendo fashion, they fail to just explicitly state what the Amiibo does. I think I only finally got the concept completely after yesterday's Direct.

How about: "Amiibo figures unlock CPU characters that fight along beside you and grow as they fight."

Really, is that so hard? Just showing someone putting the thing on the Gamepad and then showing a screen full of fighting dudes IS NOT HELPFUL.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo 64x64: Pokemon Snap:

Every system Nintendo has made since the N64 has been more and more perfect for a new Pokemon Snap game...and yet we have nothing. I don't get it.



DerpSandwich commented on Game Freak Confirms That The Pokémon Stadium ...:

I have a bunch of friends who were hesitant to move on to Black and White because they wanted to keep using Battle Revolution for their tourneys. I can understand what Masuda is saying, but there's something to be said about everything being displayed on the TV somehow. Even if we don't get another Stadium it would be great to have some way to do that. People do want it.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: KORG DSN-12 (3DS eShop):

This is the sort of thing I would have bought when I was younger and dumber. But now I'm just smart enough to know that I would buy this and be too dumb to use it.

(RPG Maker)



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Confirms GameCube Controller Adapter ...:

So does that mean that Wii games that supported the Classic Controller but NOT the Gamecube controller can now be played with a Gamecube controller acting as a Classic Controller? Sweet, I can finally play Geometry Wars the way I originally wanted! XD



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo 64x64: Pilotwings 64:

I'd never even heard of this game until well after the 3DS one came out. I guess back then I had eyes for nothing but Mario. This sort of thing might as well have been invisible.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

The more coverage I watched the more I entertained the idea of picking this up even though a year ago the mere idea of even touching a Dynasty Warriors game was less than desirable. Seeing the review scores has kind of broken me out of the daydream though. Maybe I'll pick it up in a few years when it's cheap and somehow I've finally worked through my staggering backlog.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Advert Confirms November 21st Launch ...:

And yet Nintendo is STILL hesitant to reveal this date even though it's only two months out and it's for the biggest game the Wii U has got for an entire year, presumably because they don't want to steal the thunder from the 3DS version, despite the fact that the Wii U is the system that needs it most. They've attempted to avoid one of their products cannibalizing the sales of another, when in fact they've set up a situation that's already doing that and in the worst way possible.




DerpSandwich commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:

Hands down my favorite system, with the highest number of amazing games I've ever experienced. And it sold the worst, which caused Nintendo to change how they approached game design, and ultimately has been causing me to love the company less and less. So in my eyes, it's both the best and worst thing to ever happen to Nintendo.

But dang, I loved that thing. Heck, I still do.
