Donutman commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

a female Link and a Prince Zelda. Is this really how we want Nintendo to shake up the Zelda series? Come on. I'm a life time Zelda fan, and despite seeing the argument for this and why I could make sense in the timeline aspect. NO. Do not do this. I would still play this get over it, but I just don't want to.

Donutman commented on Review: Trine Enchanted Edition (Wii U eShop):

Trine 1 is too short and has no bosses. It's an amazing 3 hours outside that. Trine 2 was too long, and got incredibly boring and I had to force myself to finish it. Still a great game, just got bored with mechanics. I wish trine 3 comes to wii u. It looks awesome too. Flaws aside, this is still a great series.

Donutman commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

I probably wouldn't even care if it did. Wind waker is one of my least fav Zelda because of the whole island world thing. I'm not saying I dont love it, just my least fav. A clone like game does not appeal to me, and if I was a ps4 gamer, a clone of an amazing game would only make me want to play said amazing game. We don't needmore Zelda like clone games, just more Zelda games.

Donutman commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

Nintento needs to do this if they want to stay in the game. I love my Nintendo consoles and handhelds, and do not want to play Zelda on ps4...as long as Nintendo can do a apple kind of thing with iPad/phones/pods being prettying the same, but for Nintendo with a console and handheld great. If all we get us mario bros3 on iPhone i will be dissapointed. Looks at all the mini games on the ds n64 mario cart. Games like that would be great for iPhone. Even tipping stars screams iPad... No matter what, I'd rather just have a 3ds that I can make calls/texts on that also gets games like the new Zelda.

Funny to see all the hate still towards wii u and the gamepad. Well, the gamepad is why I play my wii u more then any other console. My PS3 is a dark souls machine. I only want a ps4 for bloodborne and uncharted, which is a year away. My Wii u and 3ds are my 6 of 7 night a week method for gaming. My pc is used occasionally but less and less. My iPad is for hearthstone only. With all the awesome games on wii u, I don't know why people complain. My only complaint is that the gamepad doesn't have enough range around my house, and there is no dark souls on wii u.

Donutman commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Highlights Nintendo's Strengt...:

Well Nintendo, I had the weekend off and it's snowing, so I played a lot of games. 33 now with 2 kids. I played mh4 for sbout 5 hours. Dark souls 1 PS3 for like 4 hours. Smash wii u for like 2. Tipping stars for like an hour. Hearthstone on my iPad for like an hour. Nintendo won my weekend. And I still plan on more mh4 later. My oldest, 13 played some cod on his PS3 with his friends. My youngest played a bunch of mh4demo. He is 4 and loves to just play the demo. And I have to add that my oldest and his friends have all the cod games, but only play black ops 2. But none of them will play on wii u. It's to kiddie is what they say.

Kind of bummed just out of principle. But since they announced today that Unchated 4 is being delayed a year, my upgrading my ps3 to a ps4 is now waiting another year as well. So this loss of a sale to me atleast. Plenty of other great games this year on Wii U anyways.

I love Hyrule Warriors. Its the Zelda game I never knew I needed. I never got into the Warriiors series. I tried back on PS3. fanboyism helps sell games. a good genre like warriors game sometimes just needs the right facelift. Zelda was a good facelift. I hope to see more Nintendo spin offs like this.

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.

@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.
