@Quorthon It's happened before, but I just don't see it happening this time. They've already been developing it for so long and the next system is (from my perspective) still so far out. Since they announced that they were working on Twilight Princess in 2003, inevitably releasing so close to the Wii made the cross-gen jump a given.



DerpSandwich commented on Talking Point: It's Too Early to Write Off the...:

I gave up on the Wii U long before the delay. This is just one more in a long line of blows. For the record though, I absolutely don't believe this has anything to do with putting it on the NX. That idea is completely absurd to me, and so is the idea that the NX will come out any time soon. End of 2017 at the earliest, and there's no way they would delay Zelda for two years just for that.



DerpSandwich commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:

@Caryslan I did enjoy LBW overall, though I also don't understand all the love it gets. Being based on a pre-existing world made it bland and boring, it was way too easy, and as you said, the item rental thing sort of defeated a lot of the purpose. Progression is one of the things I love most in Zelda. It was mildly fun, but not the second coming of 2D Zelda a lot of people make it out to be.



DerpSandwich commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

I would be in the "better to get it right than to get it fast" camp if Skyward Sword wasn't a disappointment a half-decade in the making. Until I play it and see that it's the best Zelda game ever I'm going to be staring at my empty Wii U and thinking about how crappy this generation has been so far.



DerpSandwich commented on Eiji Aonuma Reveals More Information About the...:

Man, they spent a single year on that game and it's one of the best Zeldas there is. Why can't they give us another game using the same engine? Why did it take three times as long just to give us an upgraded version of this one?

I feel like Nintendo spends too much time reinventing the wheel on nearly every console iteration as far as graphics and engine go. I have complete confidence that they could release Zeldas twice as fast if not faster if they would just use the same style a couple times in a row and focus on giving us a new story and dungeons, as they did with MM.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

I've never actually considered getting a Mario Party game until this one, when I saw the Bowser Party mode. Seeing that there are only a few games and it's really just Bowser trying to catch up and knock you out the whole time rather than actually competing, my interest is gone once again.



DerpSandwich commented on The Happy Mask Salesman is Teased for a Reappe...:

I doubt we'll get a Majora's Mask sequel, but it would be really awesome. Playing it again for the first time in years makes me realize how many mechanics (mostly in the form of masks) just didn't get used to their fullest. I'd like to see a game that uses basically the whole existing set--even if you've got to re-collect them or something--in new ways, and with many of them used for more than a single piece of heart.



DerpSandwich commented on Two Tribes Co-Founder Doesn't Think He Would H...:

Wasn't sure about it, bought it anyway. Only sat down with it once so far, put off by confusing map progression and a constant feeling that I was leaving a bunch of stuff behind. Nice to see that not only was the level-editor cancelled, but the creator himself admits he wasn't even making a game that interested him. Makes me feel real good about taking leaps of faith and supporting the little guys.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Metroid: Zero Mission (Wii U eShop / G...:

I'm pretty excited to play this. I loved Super Metroid, and Fusion was sort of fun but way too linear (and extremely hard!!!) So this looks right up my alley. I've always wanted to play the original, but I'm never very good at playing NES games, so I think this is a perfect way to experience it. That length is a bit of a bummer though.



DerpSandwich commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

Nice, take a super sought-after item and bundle it with $300 of other stuff so people have to buy the whole thing if they want the system. One reason I don't support Gamestop.

I remember the manager at my Best Buy tried these exact obligatory bundle shenanigans when the DS came out and I'm pretty sure he got fired.



DerpSandwich commented on Remake Request: Super Metroid 3D on Nintendo 3DS:

This game is still so playable that I'd rather see a Metroid 2 remake. I'm expecting one of the two to be announced soon, though. Well, more than anything I'd rather have a new 2D adventure on 3DS, but with what Nintendo's been saying recently I expect a remake.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (North America):

$20 for Tipping Stars? It's like they wanted to experiment with cross-buy but some grumpy exec didn't want them to lose money, so they doubled the price of the game to make up for it.

Tempted to pick up Tengami for that price, but I've already got more games to play than I can count.



DerpSandwich commented on Site News: A New Readership Survey Has Appeared:

I expected it to have more to do with Nintendo Life. No...actually I guess I expected it to have ANYTHING to do with Nintendo Life.

I was sad that I wasn't able to say how I felt about Rock Paper Shotgun for their recent display of unprofessionalism.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U):

I'm in love with clay-style games, so I wish this was something I was interested in. But I felt like Canvas Curse was only kind of fun, and for this price and length it just doesn't seem like a good deal to me. I guess I can still watch videos on it though.



DerpSandwich commented on A Wild Update on Pokémon Shuffle Appears:

I was actually eager to try this until you said that you use a heart regardless of whether or not you lose the level. That kills the whole thing for me. I've had lots of fun with similar mobile games, and I actually like being limited because it prevents me from playing it for hours. This is just too far though.



DerpSandwich commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:

As cool as it would be, I just can't justify spending that much money on a system that plays the same games mine already does. Those minor improvements aren't worth losing $100+. I'm happy for everyone that's super into it though.



DerpSandwich commented on Video: Guess What, Super Mario Sunshine Looks ...:

This is literally all I want. Old games uprezzed to 1080p at 60fps. But Nintendo refuses to do that. Either we get a huge, expensive, time-consuming remastering, or we get the original--end of story.

Why does everyone downplay this stuff by saying "All they're doing is uprezzing it"? So many Nintendo games already look so amazing that this is all they need!



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (North America):

So much incredible content--so many hours and hours of pure fun--for just $10. Finding old copies of just Metroid Prime 1 for $5 already baffled me. But mind can't even handle this concept. They're some of the best games I've ever played, and some of the few I would still gladly pay full price for--EACH.



DerpSandwich commented on Animal Crossing Announcement Community Launche...:

Thank god, I thought this was going to be for a Wii U announcement, but it sounds like they're just planning on supporting New Leaf. At least I hope that's the case. I really have no idea why people are asking for AC on the Wii U when the 3DS is the perfect platform for the series. I'm fully convinced that it never needs to come to another home console.



DerpSandwich commented on Splatoon Updates Give More Insight Into Stages...:

This game really is shaping up nicely. When it was revealed it looked like a $10 eShop game, but they've fleshed it out enough that now it looks like a full retail title. And I love how different the style is from the usual Nintendo fair. I think this will attract the "older-young" audience, which is something Nintendo has needed desperately for a while. Nintendo has been too cutesy lately, and it's probably scaring away a lot of preteens and teens.



DerpSandwich commented on Hands On: We Check Out The New Nintendo 3DS XL :

It looks pretty cool, though unfortunately I could never justify spending the extra money on it, especially since I could probably only get half its cost for my current 3DS. At least the XL being the only available model makes it an easier decision for me; I hate that thing.



DerpSandwich commented on Pokémon Shuffle is a Match-Three Game With Sl...:

A game using the smartphone model...but not on a smartphone. Kids aren't the ones who buy extra hearts to play longer. This just isn't going to work.

I'm not one of the people who will go on about how Nintendo should make games for mobile, but if they're going to take the time to develop them anyway they might as well put them on the platform they'll actually matter on.



DerpSandwich commented on Retrospective: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish...:

Minish Cap came out, and then Nintendo went:

"Instead of tight, tried-and-true gameplay, how about completely touch screen controls?
Instead of gorgeous 2D graphics, how about horrible 3D ones?
Instead of a totally new concept and iteration of Hyrule, how about re-using an old one?"

The Oracle games and then Minish cap all set the standard for 2D Zeldas in my mind, and Nintendo has since yet lived up to it. LBW was getting there, but still can't hold a candle to Minish Cap. Fingers crossed for another Zelda like this one someday.
