@Shambo I would love to see a zombiu 2 as well. It's a great game to just pick up and play occasionally, but gets boring too quick. It's almost a good game, and I know I've almost enjoyed it since launch. But left for dead is just so much better.

@Quorthon I understand what you are saying, but remember, a lot of todays 3rd parties only became as big as they are by being on Nintendo consoles. Capcom comes to mind. but then Nintendo has new 3rd party devs like renegade kid or shinren to fill the gaps left ubisoft and ea etc...
a side note, I have made a point to support each big ea/ubisoft game that has released including buying watch dogs on launch day. my wii u is by far my most used gaming for last 2 years.

@ricklongo I tried VR like 15 years ago at Disney world, and it was just me walking around shooting targets with a ball shooter. let me decide if I cant handle it. its like sea sickness. I personally am waiting on getting a new pc or "next gen" console until the vr thing gets worked out. I just think Nintendo has all the parts right in front of them, just they dont see it.

I think Nintendo is already missing the boat. This could be for a vr headset... I don't know why Nintendo doesn't just rework the gamepad to be a vr headset. It already can display and track movements, the mine cart levels in capt Toad is already basically what I'm saying. Add in the wii remote and chuck controls and Nintendo has a vr console. How can someone at Nintendo not thought of this?

I could care less aboutnyhe functionability of amiibos, I just want my favs lined up on my desk :)

As for controllers, I have the ability to play 8 person smash already, I don't need more controllers. I totally would get a samus one, but just seems like a waste when there are games I want too.

My 13 year old refuses to play our kiddie wii u because he can't figure out how to beat games. Kids today resort to mindless games like cod where death has no meaning. I remember has a 7th grader with my friends learning he to beat Zelda and metroid on snew, and today the same 7th graders would rather play hide and seek (mike Myers they all it) on cod. Mindless entertainment, I'm going back to captain toad.

@AugustusOxy seriously. i have been throwing my money to Nintendo for the past few months. between sales, new eshop games, and all the great retail bayonetta, toad, smash, etc...im happy i can take a break from buying and actually play all the new games ive got.
i wish Nintendo and other companies didn't have to worry about piracy, but they do and its a shame because it does hurt people like me. and i could care less for having a 3ds that plays emulated versions of gba games.

Donutman commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

By far my fav console ever. I don't have one right now, but I did pick one up off eBay, along with a stack of games a couple years ago to relive those memories. Still have lots of vc and 3ds remastered n64 games of course. Just not perfect dark or killer instinct :(

Donutman commented on Digital Foundry Praises the Performance for Su...:

the wii u version it doesn't surprise me. It has to be at the highest standard. The 3ds is the version that blows me away. It plays the same as its console counterpart. That's even more impressive. And I know that one will get the most use in my house. We have 3 3ds' now, 1 for each of us "boys". Smash wii u is for kids for Xmas, but I've been playing it at night without them knowing. Thanks a lot Nintendo.

Donutman commented on NINJHAX Exploit Is All About Nintendo 3DS Home...:

I know 2 people who do this. They run emulators an pc and 1 has ouya too. 1 of them still buys and plays games on lots of systems. The other does not. He hasn't paid to play or bought a game or system in like 3 years. I do not support him. He has a wii and hasn't even played skyward store yet. Too busy running Roms on his pc.
I have never tried doing stuff like this. If I ever did, I'd want a "ds" that runs emulators of old school games. But I'd buy a separate one. So Nintendo gets benifit of that, and when it comes down to it, I have 2 kids and I'm a huge gamer myself. I think nintendos future is looking ok.

I am very disappointed in Gamestop by this. I think I will never buy another game from them. I would be pissed if I was one of those gamers after playing that. Would have been cool to think that a 10year old it really that good. I know my 13 year old son holds his own againist me in most games, but he isn't quite beating me yet...

Donutman commented on Suda51 Explains The Origins Of No More Heroes ...:

This was one of my fav series on wii. Still have both and replay all the time. I always love how they nailed how to mix button mash with waggle gameplay. Angling remote to change attacks, then waggle to finish people off. 1st was flawed outside of the combat, 2nd wasn't flawed at all, but still something seemed missing. I wish for hd nmh3.

Donutman commented on Cubic Ninja Sales Spike Following Announcement...:

@TeeJay I have never done anything "home brew" "emulator" related ever. I have been reading into how to do this for an old wii I acquired. Looking into doing same thing with an old ds. I have still been throwing money at Nintendo and will continue to if they keep doing the same thing they been for last 25+ years. Having a ds that runs emulators of ps1 games might not be legal I guess, but the thought of it is pretty cool. And I still have my 3ds that is downloading smashs' new update right now.

I haven't had an issue with anyone 1 fighter yet. Most people I've noticed changed characters almost every match. I do. Little Mac Odin my rotation, but I don't like him other then nostalgia. The music for his stage is awesome :)

Donutman commented on Review: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade...:

@Kaze_Memaryu it was still quite a bit cheaper then buying angry birds for Wii U. I haven't given rovio $.01 ever, so maybe i gave the money to the wrong dev, but still. As far as im concerned, 95% of all gaming falls into the clone/shovelware category. A game like army of two is shovelware when compared to uncharted. call of duty is shovelware. they are good games in their own right. like i said in my first line. Angry Bunnies was purchased for a 4 year old. it didn't cost me $20 like angry birds. i'm helping Nintendo's future by teaching my son to play games. So in no way am i hurting anyone but rovio.

Donutman commented on Review: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade...:

I picked this up for 1 reason, my 4 year old likes angry birds on the our tablets. He loves this. That's all this is good for. However, to boycott it because its a clone is lame. Most game are clones. What about those minecraft clones being done for wii u. Everyone is excited for them. Someone who likes angry birds would like this. But that's it.
And I admit this is was a waste of money, but tablets are so easy to use, he hates the thought of using a button controller. But in the last month, he has been playing Smash on the 3ds, Mario 3dworld, tennis and boxing now too. Now he has another game. Thanks Nintendo.

He might not be wrong, but this mentality is like giving up. This is what the big AAA devs think, so why not the little guys? But hey, if it sucks...wii u owners don't want it. Give the mediocre games to Sony snd Microsoft.

Donutman commented on Nintendo 64x64: Super Smash Bros:

I used to train for hours at this game. Me, link, vs 3 max level jiggly puffs all of us with 10 stock lives. I hated jiggly puff and took lots of pleasure beating it up :) My friends and I played countess over nighters with this game in high school and college. Probably all time fav video game. Smash on 3ds is awesome and I can't wait for wii u.

Donutman commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ability to Charm You...:

@ValiantPixel and at 15, I was too busy playing n64 goldeneye and smash bros to care about a ps1. I had a pc to play starcraft, half life, quake etc...but i have always had a Nintendo ____ for my tv gaming. Still at 33, my wii u is on the living room tv, and my ps3 has found its way to my sons room for his COD gaming. i even got smash for his 3ds and i end up playing it non stop, and he used it once, but went back to COD. its sad that this is what gaming has become. non stop FPS and and pay to play. that's what gaming has become, a pop culture service like cable tv.

Donutman commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ability to Charm You...:

In my world...I knownore adults that still play Mario/Zelda then kids. All the kids I know, my 13 year old son included...would rather play PS3 black ops and minecrsft then Mario or Zelda. Kids today don't have patience to play a Zelda game. It's a shame that cod sells 20 million copes overnight, but Mario hitting 3 million this gen is will be amazing. Nintendos real competition is iPod touches. Not ps4 and x1s.

Buying it day 1 even though I know I wont like it. I don't like sandbox games enough to play more then 1 or 2 a gen. but I have to support this if I want more games on Wii U. I really just want to play as many games on my gamepad as possible and that why I waited.

I think I am going to petition mircosoft to let Nintendo have Halo games on Wii U. I think Nintendo is lacking in fps games and hey, why not. Lets even have Master Chief be a DLC character for smash. Maybe we could even get Kratos too. I don't want to buy an xbox so Microsoft should bend over for me.
