DoomTurtle commented on Super Mario Maker Makes its Way to Super Smash...:

@rjejr - Did you unlock all the stages in the game itself? If you haven't unlocked all the stages yet, then it's possible that your Suzaku and Miiverse stage are sitting on the front page in place of the locked ones. Then once you unlock them, it will push the DLC stages into the second page.



DoomTurtle commented on Humble Nindie Bundle Adds Three New Games:

For you Steamworld Dig players: I hope you went back to the old cave rooms when you got your upgraded powers. There are some cool secret areas to unlock that you couldn't get to earlier in the game, including an awesome homage to the underground level 1-2 of Super Mario Bros!



DoomTurtle commented on Poll: Which 2015 Nintendo Blockbusters Should ...:

@Bushido_Fai I can afford plenty. I'm an adult with a professional job, no student loans, the cars are paid off, etc. I don't say that to brag, but to give you an idea of where I am coming from. I prefer to get a more value for my money than what an Amiibo provides. $13 to unlock a costume that provides no additional gameplay? No thank you. And I'm certainly not looking to put a bunch of figures on a shelf. But maybe that's where others find their value, because they collect or play with them outside the game?. But that also boggles my mind. As a kid in the eighties, my action figures had moving parts and all kinds of attachable weapons. A non-moving figure, especially one that had a big blob of plastic to support it's pose would be very disappointing to me.



DoomTurtle commented on Poll: Which 2015 Nintendo Blockbusters Should ...:

I love the way everyone loathes pay-to-play models and options in games, and yet everyone loves Amiibo. There has not yet been a single gameplay option in any game that HAD to have an Amiibo. All the games with unlockable weapons, costumes, hidden Toads, etc. could all have been implemented without needing to buy $13 figures.

I mean, for Mario Kart 8 it cost $12 to purchase 16 new tracks, 6 characters, new vehicles, and alternate colored shy-guys & yoshis, yet another $130 worth of figures to unlock 10 costumes that offers absolutely nothign gameplay-wise. Even Smash Bros. could have just let you put your characters on an SD card (which are much cheaper and can hold more information) that a figure that allows a max of one custom character.

This whole Amiibo craze is just ridiculously priced DLC (as is Skylanders and Disney Infinity) and everyone just loves it. It completely boggled my mind when Skylanders became huge as everyone paid ridiculous amounts of money for what is basically on-disc content. This whole craze is awful. It's making Nintendo a ton of money, but it's certainly keeping me away. I have way more things I want to spend my money on than expensive little toys that unlock the most basic and mostly unnecessary gameplay options.



DoomTurtle commented on Nintendo Download: 11th December (North America):

Did we not get the new Zen Pinball tables? Or is this just another case of the report not mentioning it?

I know there have been weeks when Europe had Zen Pinball table discounts, and it wasn't mentioned in the NA report, but they were still available in the NA eShop.



DoomTurtle commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

I think people are upset for the reason given. This is a perfectly working character on the Wii U that is being removed purely because of a completely different game on a completely different system. They can have different modes, different stages, different music, but because one system can't handle a character, the other loses out.

I just don't understand why some people think having less characters is better than having more.



DoomTurtle commented on Impending Japanese Launch Of Super Smash Bros....:

It sucks that they couldn't get the Ice Climbers to work in the 3DS version, so the Wii U can't have them either. I also wonder if that's why they cut transformations out completely (Samus, Zelda, Pokemon Trainer). Maybe they weren't working well on the 3DS, so that's why they were all separated out as their own characters.

As for anyone missing, we can only hope the leaked roster picture wasn't a complete roster, so maybe Lucas, Wolf, and others still have a chance to be in there somewhere. Barring that, there's always the hope to bring them back with future DLC.



DoomTurtle commented on Feature: Meet The Playable Cast Of Hyrule Warr...:

Not so sure you can call The Legend of Zelda as Impa's first appearance. She was mentioned and drawn in the instruction manuals for The Legend of Zelda and Adventure of Link, but is never seen or mentioned in the actual games. Her first actual game appearance was Ocarina of Time.



DoomTurtle commented on The Walking Dead's New Table is Shambling Onto...:

I'm not buying anymore tables from them at all for full price. If they have another sale for half price, then I will look at picking up some more tables. They still need to fix the glitches and problems that have been around for over a year now before I'll be spending full price on anything else.



DoomTurtle commented on Zen Studios States That Wii U Pinball News is ...:

No obligation to support the Wii U any further? They most certainly do. When their scoreboards have problems, and you can't even run the tournaments that they themselves advertised as a selling point, then they better keep supporting to get these fixes in place. They certainly don't have a problem taking money for the Wii U version, so they better not have a problem with us wanting these problems fixed.



DoomTurtle commented on Review: Color Zen Kids (Wii U eShop):

Only 100 levels doesn't make this one worth it. Can't say the original was ever maddeningly difficult though. I beat all 460 levels and my playtime for the game shows just under 7 hours. That's less than a minute per level. The really easy ones take only a few seconds, so the few hardest maybe took 2-3 minutes tops. I was a little disappointed at how easy it all was.



DoomTurtle commented on Zen Studios Collaborates With Telltale Games a...:

I've been checking the Zen forums now and then just to see if they ever have any updates on fixes or the new tables, and they just won't respond with anything. It's pretty disappointing, because I bought the Avengers pack, and it's really fun. But I won't be getting anything else unless it's on sale, because their customer service for the Wii U is awful.



DoomTurtle commented on Feature: Looking Back on the Year of Luigi:

I need to know about Luigi Bros. in Mario 3D World. Is it an unlockable, part of a stage, or just an option on the menu? I haven't gotten into it yet, I'm still finishing up all the green stars in Mario Galaxy 2. But I did play it once with a couple friends and don't recall being able to select it.
