Donutman commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Right to Take Its Ti...:

This is how I see modern gaming... Nintendo wants you to own a collection of games and does not understand why millions more people play candy crush instead of Mario. They are struggling because an iPhone/iPod is better then a 3ds in terms of accessablty. Ps and Xbox are cooler then Nintendo. Which imo Nintendo has never been cool. Cool doesn't akway mean money making. Last gen has big releases every week. This gen we lucky to get a AAA from any console each month. Instead indies are there. They making the money. We seeing another mini depression in the gaming industry just like in the 80s when Nintendo took the world by storm. Is that going to happen again? Probably not. Could Nintendo revolutionize gaming? Yes. How? I think it's as simple as offering a 100% cross compatibility between its home and handheld consoles. A wii u is just a big ds. If they released a $500 and $300 handheld with their backlog of amazing games, they could put any other gaming device out of business. (I think they planning something like this, and maybe even entering the vr market in 3-4 years). Sorry for the wall :)

@Quorthon there has been more evolution in Zelda in the 25 years it's been around then there has been in call of duty over the what 10 games in 10 years. Complain about 1.5 new Zelda games per console gen. I'll take link between worlds over assassins creed anyday. I played every AAA PS3 game and the only 1 I still love to play is dark souls. Everything else is just more blah rpg or fps. Prettier versions but not always better. Uncharted 2 was the peak for that series. Last of us is so overdone today. Little big planet is so original.... Halo was only successful because it started the online fps console gaming that I was already playing on Pc for years of quake and half life. And today what's left of halo or resident evil is a terrible shell of once it once was, and why do I need to play it. Watch dogs is blah in any system. I have resident evil revelations and every other 3rd party wii u game, and Instead I'm playing bayonetta 2 or hyrule warriors instead destiny on my PS3. Mh4 and mm are taking up my time now, while smash is in on wii u for a change. Knock it, but i have 4 people in my family and with as much as it gets used, we probably going to get a 2nd for my 13 year old room. We already have 3 3ds', so why not? But my son doesn't even use his vita instead choosing his iPod. Are there faults and gaps yea. My 13 year old and all his friends only play minecraft and call of duty. My youngest is just getting into gaming. He loves smash. We all still play games like wii sports on a bi weekly kind of thing. I wI'll get a ps4 somedsy. The only 2 games today i want are witcher snd blood borne. But there are more then 5 wii u games coming this year I want. I just don't see the point to upgrading to pay to play. NIntendo wasn't cool when i was a kid. Sega was. Nintendo isn't cool today. Xbox and ps are. But who will be there in the future, still making consoles? Nintendo. Ps now is Sonya future. Next gen gaming is going to be like cable tv, and Nintendo is like owning blue rays.

Donutman commented on Study Finds That US Consumers Are Buying Wii U...:

I have a wii u because its nintendos new console. Because of the gamepad features like off tv play. I play all the time and wife never complains. It's also for the kids. It has mario/Zelda/ metroid. Free online and with backward conpatibilty, I can play over 300 games and had enough controllers to play 8 person smash day 1 without need of extra comtrollers. the only game that after years of playing PS3 too, I wish I had on wii u is dark souls. I firmly believe true gamers have a wii u next to whatever other gaming device(s) they have. A 3ds counts too since it's awesome.

@Quorthon except Xbox and Sony user don't get to play mario/Zelda/metroid games either. I own a PS3 and a pc if I want saints row, or whatever other games I miss. But lots of people don't get Nintendo consoles today. They missing out on more then I am. I also want to add I even waited for watch dogs to get it on wii u instead of PS3. I support 3rd parties even if it's a medicore game. I would have got it day 1 PS3 but I wanted gamepad support. And that's something very important to me and how I game.

@WaveBoy ill gladly pay $15 for this before buying the next resident evil game for $60. Or at all after playing revelations.
Here's a revelation for ya, everything is a rip off of something else, so grow up and enjoy good things. If this is good, I'll enjoy it.

Donutman commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

Looking back, through high school snd college this is all my friends and ever played. Today, I'm the only one who still is a Nintendo fan but they all got x360s and thought I was crazy staying with wii. I also should mention they played pretty much nothing but call of duty. Sad really. They still love playing wii u when they come over, but they will never buy one. A think this gen for Nintendo with both handheld and console is their best ever. 2nd to only n64 gen. And Zelda and x and devil and starfox and who knows is all this year. How can anyone not have a wii u? I will get a ps4 someday, maybe. I did get a PS3 for 3 years, to play lots of games 1 time and dark souls for 1000 hours. But It's still not Zelda. As much as my wii u is used in the house could justify a second one. But the PS3 is still a call of duty box for my son, cause that what his friends are playing...

All this hate toward Nintendo na not getting the standard new 3ds is annoying. You can find decent skins on eBay for any device, and type. I got a Zelda wrap for my wii u, looks amazing. Just do this with the xl. The xl is better just because it fits my hands and doesn't force them to cramp up.

I don't care. I prefer to have actual games disc/cart over download on full retail games. I have plenty of download, but I also have 3 3ds' now and it's nice that anyone can use the games. 2 kids and myself, I picked up my new 3ds last fri along with Mh4 and mm.

Because as much as I want to use nothing but my iPhone, I can't game on it. Outside 2 tower defense games I play occasionally, I play no other games on it. I have my 3ds when I want real games on the go. I'm 32 and im not above playing "my sons" game boy when my car was getting a tune up the other day ;) Thats better then playing candy crush like the rest of the sheep.

@Einherjar thanks :). I loved uncharted and last of us, but for 1 playthrough then I moved on. I logged a lot of hours of uc2 multiplayer, but no story, just solid awesome gameplay. Survival mode was awesome. Most of my PS3 games only got 1 play, but even mario strikers still got some play time last weekend.

Donutman commented on Ubisoft's Unreleased and Finished Wii U Game H...:

Thanks Ubisoft, watch dogs is the last game I'll buy from you unless you remake prince of Persia. And I have every, I repeat every game you released onto wii u. And I loved red steel 1 and 2 and many other games last gen on wii, but I guess you don't like money. I only got watch dogs out of principle. I would have bought it day 1 so I don't mind the $60 even though it was late, but it's still a slap in the face.

Donutman commented on Review: Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate (3DS):

I've tired to like this series over the years and just keep comparing it to dark souls. This one seems better after playing the demo, but what will I do with my PS3 if I give up dark souls? I will be getting it along side the new 3ds and majoras mask. It's going to be a expensive weekend. And it's valentines, do the wife will expect something too :)

Donutman commented on Weirdness: This Video Uses Super Mario Bros. 2...:

@Einherjar too many people today play video games and watch no tv or movies, or pay attention to current events etc... So this is why some gamers or devs feel the need to have a story that is deep and meaningful in their games. So make them seem less like a nerd and more like a normal person and then they look at me playing Mario and Zelda and think im the loser. But I pay attention to the real world and video games are just that, video games. Not my solution for learning about real life things. I accept that there are all kinds of gamers out there, but the majority of modern gamers do not accept that the video games are just video games. They need to them to be something profound and meaningful so they don't have to be a nerd like me. as long as my kind of gaming exists, ill be happy. and as far as im concerned, 33 years old now, and despite getting married, having 2 kids, job etc...gaming has never been a bigger part of my life then it is today. My wife and I thought id out grow it, but instead they just grow with me. Mario games are better today then when I was a kid, but they story is the same. Bowser kidnaps princess, Mario has a new suit to rescue her.

Donutman commented on Review: Undead Storm Nightmare (3DS eShop):

@cyrus_zuo this style controls is way to snes era. I understand the limits of the 3ds but your right. I would not be able to get past the terrible controls. plenty of other good games instead...which is sad since if prob like this one.

Donutman commented on Satoru Iwata Reiterates Plans for Quality of L...:

@LUIGITORNADO I respectfully disagree. Nintendo is going after gamers this gen more then then with the wii. And i admit I was very happy with all the great games Nintendo has on wii. But this gen, free online, great games, old school games. Bayonetta 2, hyrule warriors made my fall. it is insanely accessible. All my wii notes work on it, I can play 8 person smash with 3ds, wii motes, classic and pro controllers etc... I can play in my hand when I can't on tv. I'm not above sitting my gamepad in my lap on a pillow while using a wimote and chuck to play skyward sword. I've always been a pc/Nintendo gamer. I got a PS3 when my pc died, and the whole 5 years now I've had it, the only game I still replay constantly is dark souls. I've played it all over the years. Lots of forgettable great games. Good graphics. its now it's my kids while the wii u is more mine. My 13 year old plays mincrsft and call of duty exclusively for like 3 years. He and his friends play smash and kart etc, but otherwise treat it like it would give them cancer. That's the future of gaming folks. Nintendo knows this. That's why they taking all that wii money and investing it into the blue ocean. Us true Nintendo fans will keep playing Zelda, but the future is playstation now. And I don't like that. Which is why my wii u had over 300 games right now. Wii and vc included.

@Jazzer94 ok, so what about other m? We all ask for what you just said then we complain when a game like other m doesn't do an amazing job at this. I want Nintendo games that are fun. I am loving replaying the prime series. No need for blockbuster story, just put in a strange planet and spin you around. Zelda games used to be like this. But maybe I've just played too many now. I don't want mario getting all emotional every time he dies.
I can't wait fr the 13th.

It would have been better if half of them were locked and it look months to get the rest. Not in less then a weekend we had the whole roster unlocked. I mean, how many stars are in mario 3d world? I like the challenge of unlocking and collecting...that's why I like Nintendo games. Getting every missile pack or heart piece. It's too overwhelming to have like 50 characters to choose from day 1.

Donutman commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X is so Sizeable That It ...:

@SupremeAllah get into buying digital...I have 5 full retail games that I ended up getting the digital instead. I also have about 50 eshop games. I'm not talking about the near 200 I have on my wii vc. Yes, nes games are tiny, but I still have no issue deleting a game like stick it to the man after 2 playthroughs...so I could get citizens of earth and the prime trilogy. Once I'm done with them, I'll delete them. But I know if i ever want to replay, I just have to re download and they ready the next day, or sooner.

Donutman commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X is so Sizeable That It ...:

@SupremeAllah I always thought wii u uses a flash memory hard drive instead of a traditional one. Traditiional ones require more power to run, more moving parts, hence less reliable. They are louder. These are just a few reasons why I can see Nintendo not going with a tradition hdd. The biggest con to it is obviously the size. It costs a lot of $$ to get a 100gb flash drive in a wii u. Besides, as much as I like to have it all at my finger tips, the reality is I cant play 10 games at a time. Ive beat pikmin 3 a couple times now, so I deleted it, not the saves, but the game, and it frees up space to I can play Metroid Prime trilogy. In a few months when ive made my way through those again, and I feel like replaying pikmin, I will redownload it. To me, the reliability of a wii u as well as the ease of use are why I feel like 32 gb is fine for me. I try to get stuff on discs before digitally since I still like to trade in games after playing them and I hate buying a digital game I don't end up even liking and wasting money on. Cough JOURNEY AND LIMBO. both over priced and very dissapointting to me because of that. Limbo was barely 2 hours long with $15 price tag. same with journey... I bought a ps3 the day Uncharted 2 released, loved it until I was a out 400 hours into dark souls, and then my HDD died. I had a real hard time keeping the system after that. And when it died the 2nd time, it became my sons. My Wii u still has my saves from my Wii on it, which is like saying this system has lasted 10 years. And funny true store, my wii hd never had an issue, but I had to replace the disc drive 2 times over the what 8 years I had it. Moving parts... Nintendo wants you to play their games/systems for years, so they make them reliable.

Donutman commented on YouTube Stars Aren't Happy With Nintendo's Rev...:

I own s franchiseed business. I have to pay for the right to use the name and products from this franchisee. End of the day, we both make money. Just because I sell coffee and Nintendo sells video games is no different. if a you tuber makes money off of nintendos games, then Nintendo has the right to share in that as well. If you don't like it, then don't use nintendos products. Hate to say but all devs will eventually follow Nintendo in this area.

Donutman commented on Xenoblade Chronicles X is so Sizeable That It ...:

@SupremeAllah because my PS3 has needed 3 replacement hard drives over like 6 years. My friends with x360s can say the same. But my wii never had an issue. My wii u will never have an issue. And like someone said, just delete old games you not playing, not the saves...then in a year when you back to replay it, set it to download and next day you all set. I've consodered getting an exteranal hd, but I really just don't need it. I still prefer discs, but I have plenty of digital games.

I sold mine the night of the direct. I made $50. So that's $40 profit after getting the digital version this week. I'm a collector too, and now I get to have several more games. $40 worth to be exact. Thank you Nintendo. It's going towards the new 3ds.

Sorry to the 3 families that cant get multiple ones, but I wanted 1 for myself and couldn't even get that 1. most preorders were just getting resold on ebay anyways. I already have the 2 worlds Zelda xl and a 2ds, but I am getting a 3rd household 3ds and this one is going to be MINE. My kids keep taking mine to lately and its driving me crazy.
