Diddy_kong commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Wii U This Hol...:

My 5 reasons:

1. Mario Kart 8
2. Tropical Freeze
3. Smash Bros.
4. Mario 3D World
5. Mario Kart 8 :D

I love Sony, love my PS3, and am looking forward to getting a PS4 next year, but those games right there are the reasons why I'm still a Nintendo fanboy at the age of 27.

Diddy_kong commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Thomas - thank you. This was one of the best pieces that I have ever read on the site, and unlike plenty of users I actually read everything through before I comment.

You're completely spot-on with everything here and I applaud you for putting all of this out there.

Diddy_kong commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

When a system can offer you Super Mario 3D World, Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, and Smash Bros., why would anybody want to waste their money on a game with the word "Sonic" in the title?

Diddy_kong commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, and Smash Bros.

The four biggest Wii U titles of the year, and yet NONE of them use the GamePad in a meaningful way, if at all.

I love the Wii U, but the GamePad is a joke. Accept it, people.

Diddy_kong commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Why are people so upset about a pending score? We're all just going to buy the game in 2 days anyways, so let's calm down a bit.

And plenty of sites do this. They want to test the online modes under real-world conditions.

Anyways, who cares. Come Friday morning none of this will matter. :)

Diddy_kong commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

Look, I hope this project is very successful for Nintendo this holiday season and beyond, but until these things do more than their pointless functions in Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros I have zero interest in them.

What Nintendo needs to do is make a Disney Infinity-esque game where there's actually a world for people to use their Amiibo in. That would be interesting to me and they had better announce something like that at E3. But unlocking a Kirby costume in Mario Kart? I'll pass, thanks.

@Punished_Boss_84

Also well said. I honestly could not imagine just having a Wii U this console generation. Yes, Nintendo's first party stuff is amazing, but I don't just want to play Mario Kart and Tropical Freeze over and over again , waiting months on end for something new to come along. I have very diverse gaming tastes and Nintendo alone just doesn't cut it anymore. It did when I was 7, but not now that I'm 27. Sometimes I want to play racing games that don't involve turtle shells, and sometimes I actually want to shoot stuff in my games. Not many of those options on the Wii U.

Diddy_kong commented on Preview: Having a Brawl With Super Smash Bros....:

Knowing that this game is right around the corner almost makes me forget how truly awful the first year of the Wii U's life was. That's all under the bridge now, though. Tropical Freeze and HD Mario Kart and Smash Bros?? Thank you, Nintendo.

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

I think the Wii U already offers great value at it's current price (not to mention plenty of bundle options out there as well.) I know I'm waiting for a serious price cut before I buy a PS4. Plus right now the PS4 doesn't have a single game that I want, but that'll change as the cycle moves along.

I'm perfectly content to split my time between my Wii U and my PS3.

Diddy_kong commented on Guide: Tips And Tricks To Get You Started In B...:

Thanks for doing this, NL. I'm looking forward to playing the actual game a few months down the line. I downloaded the demo when it became available and really enjoyed it, but I found it very difficult to actually learn combos. I found that all the moves more or less look the same, so I felt like I was just button mashing while dodging affectively. Hopefully when I can sit down with the full game I'll actually be able to learn some techniques.

Another year, another couple of mis-guided Sonic games. Somebody wake me when the formula actually changes.

Also, the words "adventure" and "explore" should not be used when discussing Sonic. Ever. Do developers simply not remember the Genesis Sonic games??

Diddy_kong commented on Nintendo Reveals The Master Cycle for Mario Ka...:

I think this is pretty cool. I'm still going to stick with my trusty Larry Koopa, but it'll be neat to have Link be one of the other 11 racers.

Mainly though I just care about the new Cups. That's worth the money right there.

Still have all three DKC games on my Wii. Not in the habit of buying things multiple times just because Nintendo thinks I should. Why, that'd be like buying 3 different remodels of the 3DS... not like anybody would be eager to throw their money away for something like that, now would they..?

Diddy_kong commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

No I'm not disappointed at all. People, it's missing three controller inputs when compared to the GamePad and Pro Controller. The sticks don't click and it's got one less shoulder button on the left. It would not work for any game that uses those inputs. Wind Waker and Mario Kart and Mass Effect and Tropical Freeze are all perfect with the Pro Controller. Stop being greedy and stop complaining. You all wanted to be able to play Smash with a Game Cube controller and you got your wish. Be thankful for that and move on.

Diddy_kong commented on Rumour: Nintendo Removed Tharja From Super Sma...:

As somebody who grew up with Nintendo and is now 27 I find this a little ridiculous. There are plenty of gamers out there who are not 5 years old. I think we can handle a character like this in Smash Bros.

And besides, Melee had a T rating. I don't really think that title was hurt by that.

Diddy_kong commented on Bayonetta on Wii U Bewitches as the Best Version:

I don't mean to sound like a troll here because this all sounds really great, but saying "alongside the likes of Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Bayonetta stands out as one of the best ports available on the Wii U" is not a compliment. I have never had a game freeze on me the way Need for Speed did. It easily crashed on me 15 times in 30 hours of gameplay. It once froze on me 4 times in 5 minutes. My frustration with Most Wanted U, coupled with the fact that I just really wanted to play an HD Need for Speed game, is what made me go out and buy a PS3, which at the time was my first ever non-Nintendo console.

I think it's great that the Wii U is getting such a great exclusive like Bayonetta, but nothing ticks me off more than anybody praising Need for Speed: Most Wanted U. That game simply did not work.

Diddy_kong commented on Guide: How to Beat Everyone Else in Mario Kart 8:

Really? Never would have thought that avoiding getting hit by an item was something that I should try to do. I'll think of that strategy the next time I'm in 1st for two and half laps, get nothing but coins from the item boxes, and am completely defenceless against all the shells and boomerangs that are sent my way.

Diddy_kong commented on Super Mario World Speedrun Record Is Broken:

I can beat the game in 16 minutes and I don't have to rely on glitches to do it.

Get to the Star Road, beat those levels so that you can access Bowser's Castle, and there you go. 16 minutes. No deaths. No cheating.

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

I always knew that reviews for this game were going to be mixed at best, but I'm still really looking forward to it. Killing thousands of enemies as Link without having to worry about a single environmental puzzle? I was sold months ago.
