Doctor_Pancakes commented on Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball (3DS eShop):

Nintendo wanted to make something new. If they had made it Animal Crossing Baseball reviewers would be complaining about Nintendo's lack of new IP's so that made a good call imo. It is a great game so I don't think it will struggle in sales and I'm sure people will be surprised how many shell out full price for it.

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Wii U System Update 4.1.0 Available Now:

@turnmebackwards I had that issue back when it launched but that is understandable. Since last September I haven't had a single issue with my Wii U. These updates go in and fix problems like freezing, losing connection to the game pad and fluidity of going from program to program like going from in game to Miiverse. The Wii U has improved a LOT and is continuing to! The only games my Wii U did freeze on the few times it did were on shoddy launch 3rd party ports anyhow. Sonic Racing, COD BO2, Batman AC once and (although it was a fantastic port that came out later) Need for Speed. Even with those games I haven't had them freeze or lock up since the steady flow of updates started.

No pirate theme = I'm not even getting it on PS4.
I enjoyed Black Flag on the Wii U when I was exploring and out on the open sea... the gameplay out side of that was just like the rest of the series though so this step back in the series is just stupid. Not interested either way now.

@Guybrush20X6 Graphically the game was mind blowing. I was in awe just opening drawers lol
The game was way above all competition graphically at the time. It was in the record books as most expensive game to develop and I thought the numbers were more like $100 million to develop... If I remember correctly the game was $80 when it released...

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Nintendo Comes Up Empty at BAFTA Awards:

@Peek-a-boo no if Nintendo developed Last of Us I'd think they sold out and gave in to the point and shoot genre the game feeds to. All of the games best assets like the adventure, exploration of abandoned neighborhoods for survival items, hunting the deer and character/story development were fantastic but in the end it is just a run of the mill shooter with boring hide from the clicker segments. If anything if Nintendo had developed the game play around good parts of the game already there the game would have been vastly better.

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Nintendo's Expensive New Development Building ...:

For shame Nintendo Life. Never judge a book by it's cover.
The new building is much nicer than the old one though. Bigger windows and by counting them the building is much bigger than the one you compared it to. Not going to lie. The old building does look like a prison.

I think this is a great time to get some DS games not released in America to American gamers! I want to see both Hotel Dusk and its sequel(which never released here) on the Wii U, I know it would be a bit tricky to pull off since you held the DS like a book but with a little effort it can work! That and I want just about every great RPG released on the system including all of the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest remakes and Radiant Historia.

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Only Sell...:

@ThomasBW84 ...most of the news I notice from this site is usually negative lol
I did like yall's reviews at one point but these days to get to them I have to scroll past 5 or 6 articles like "Watch Dogs U Canceled?!", "What Nintendo Should Do", "What the Direct Says for..." and now "Tropical Freeze only sells blah blah blah"
Seriously it is annoying. I bet the traffickers that are fan boys to your sister Sony and MS sites just eat up all of this negativity and don't even look past the negativity when considering getting a Wii U. Wii U's biggest enemy right now is all of the negative press it has been getting so good job Nintendo Life, sure you think you have had good intentions but really you are just part of the bigger problem of trolling media.

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

The drought is across all platforms. At least Nintendo has Donkey Kong, Bravely Default and Kirby to tide us over a bit. As far as I can see Sony only has a Final Fantasy X remake for Vita that catches my interest until Uncharted 4 or Phantom Pain comes out. How is that better? And XBone isn't worthy of a mention. Nothing about that console is attractive gaming wise as of now...

Edit:I forgot about Kingdom Hearts 3. Sill useless until 2016 most likely lol

Doctor_Pancakes commented on January's NPD Results Show Improved Software S...:

If you look at it this way the Wii U is the only console made for the hard core gamer, casuals that prefer the all in one media hubs and a box that plays fancy first and third person shooters that have yearly updates look elsewhere when they want a gaming experence. Knowing this these sales are expected, the figures look very late 90's/early 00's, these are the core gamers that have always been there and the new generation of gamers that prefer game play over point and shoot death match nonsense.

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Nintendo Is Here To Stay And Will Do Very Well...:

Nintendo will do fine but the press constantly saying the Wii U needs to go isn't helping. It is a false statment. Wii U is the best console out there, it is the press that needs to go and let Nintendo do their thing. They have a plan and it will work(Nintendo has some killer upcoming Wii U titles planned to add to their already great library that the press oddly ignores...), interviewers insist on focusing on the bad instead of this year's big releases. This site is one of the worst when it comes to doom and gloom articles too. Should be ashamed but I guess they are busy playing... what? Kill Zone in the PS4? Talk about awful library... I am shocked the thing has some as much as it has. Sadly gamers care about graphics over innovation these days I guess :(

@Mahe the game pad is great... The Kinetic is and always has been awful lol
All PS4 did was add a pointless touch thing, a goofy light and a speaker which they stole from Nintendo in how it works with games. Also I still can't get over how cheap they feel every time I pick it up. Same with the XBone controller, I guess after getting used to a luxury like the Game pad everything feels cheap. I still think the PS3> PS4 in the controller department though...

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Nintendo Was Dead To Us Very Quickly, States E...:

EA is an awful company with a sense of self importance. .. who do they think has the time to play their games? KIDS! Consoles are toys and kids play them when their parents are off doing adult things. The last battlefield game I played (bad company 2) there were more kids on the Multiplayer than adults or even older teenagers... they clearly need to be boycotted for a year. That'll teach'em lol

@SKYW4LK3R really it is my only problem with the console. I'd of paied extra for a 500 gigger if they had it. The external that gamestop provides is only around 320 gigs and is WAY over priced. Nintendo really does need to provide a list of good compatibal and cheap externals if they choose to continue with the low gig consoles.

What do you think reviews are? They sell the people on the product. This site has a lot of great writers and they seem to waste it on sales articles from what I have seen here lately. I do love the site but for every good article there is another Nintendo sales fall again article. Just seems backward to me. Guess that's why I dont run a game site... I'd be one biased but positive s.o.b. lol

Why is a Nintendo centered site posting negative sales articles instead of trying to sell people on the fantastic console and its software Nintendo has given us? Do your job? Convince the public to what Nintendo is struggling with, show us with your journalistic skills how to properly build up popularity for a fantastic system. Do articles on how Wind Waker HD, Mario 3D World and A Link Between Worlds are the highest rated games of the holidays and how everyone that claims to be a gamer needs to experence those fine titles...

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Call of Duty: Ghosts Wii U Performance Reporte...:

@Marshi The thing is the bad textures pop up consistently through out the campaign and it is very distracting. The gameplay sadly is exactly as it has been since COD4. Why they haven't brought back Wager Matches in multiplayer is beyond me, that was a fun step in a new direction. The campaign? Am I the only one that finds them to overly dramatic. War isn't about slow-mo, big explosions and bad acting, it is about the life of you and your team, the mission and staying sane. Treyarch gets that to a point(still overly dramatic but they know how to put in a illusion that your life and sanity is on a dangerline) but IW makes it pan out like some Saturday morning cartoon, the characters feel bloody invincible. Over all it all just feels silly in the end.

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Call of Duty: Ghosts Wii U Performance Reporte...:

@Marshi It can be seen, I posted a lot of ugly textures to Miiverse and I hope more people do the same so a patch is made. Textures on some character models, environments and random objects like monitors and junk piles of trash and old TVs look lifted straight from an N64 title. I was thinking they were that bad across all currently avaliable platforms but DF showed that to be wrong sadly. This is simply an awful port. Assassins Creed Black Flag look superior on Wii U(most textures look lifted from PS4 version), just lacking a few next-gen effects like Rain hitting the ship deck, water spilling onto the deck and running off which ever way the ship is tilted and moving foliage when sneaking in the grassy areas. The game is a beaut.

Doctor_Pancakes commented on Poll: Would You Buy Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U?:

I got it for PS3 and for one hate the mini map given in the game... if I could have a USEFUL map on the game pad at all times to look at so I could glance down to know where to go instead of having to have my eyes glued to the bottom corner of the screen maybe I'd be able to enjoy the games world... which would look FANTASTIC on the Wii U due to it being more powerful and able to play the game with more detail. And after playing NFS on the system I think the controls would be loads better too. We already know shooters are great on it.
