Dormouse commented on Candle May Light Up Wii U If It Reaches Its St...:

@HugoSmits What I like about Nintendo is that when you think about the gaming industry, its becoming the next art medium and they recognize that, perhaps always have. Like film isn't as old as music so is video games becoming the art medium as film was. Video games have come just a long way as film has but in a shorter amount of time.
Nintendo games to me are very replayable i think theres an intentional reason for the artistic/animated style that all there games have. To this day I still love playing super Mario Bros and Mario 64, I don't say that about the first tomb raider or Twisted Metal on PlayStation one.
There's a charming sense of whimsy Nintendo that Nintendo presents with their games and that's why so many people play them for years to come because they're timeless classics.

I'm glad Nintendo is taking so many indie devs and bringing their games to Wii U and 3DS! I just wish they could get here faster. I cant wait to play that black and white with crazy color bursting the legend of Zelda inspired game! Anyone know what its called? Two brothers or something? Looks amazing, out of this world!

Dormouse commented on Nintendo Download: 25th July (North America):

If the Gameboy Advance had super nintendo ports. Why doesnt the 3DS have Super Nintendo games on Eshop?...or game boy advance games for that matter.. Id like to have Minish cap & a link to the past on my 3DS. Nobody wants gamegear games. Also metroid fusion and zero mission. Or maybe ill just buy the original carts. But itd be nice to have some more handheld Nintendo hits on 3DS

Dormouse commented on Hugo Smits Could Bring Super Beefjerks To 3DS ...:

I being a wii U owner am starved for games. Especially the eshop indie titles. Nintendo cant release these indie titles fast enough for me. It's sort of a good thing because i. and others notice every new title that releases so im more inclined to purchase it. So sure, i would buy this game on the wii u / 3ds eshop.

Remember in the early 80's and even 80's when social media was pretty much non existint. Now these game devs are so rich they need to ask how many people want their game to see if its worth their time making or porting it.

Dormouse commented on Feature: Our Favourite Wii U and 3DS Smash Bro...:

I never wanted to get to versions of a game before. I am definitly getting both Wii u and 3DS versions of Super Smash Bros. ! I'm just torn on which version of Sonic Lost world to get. I kinda want the 3DS version but I'm worried it wont look as polisjed for the 3DS as possible as in comparison to wii u. I know obviously wii u will ne HD but I'd like to get the 3DS.

What happend Nintendo? Where when and why did you fall off? I love your 3DS. But my Wii U has no games. Your console games are becoming lackluster and why dont you release eshop games faster. Why is there loads of crap on eshop. Why are there like 10 indie games on wii U eshop. Trine 2 and that shin en shooter are awesome but that's it. I dont wany tablet games like angry birds and little inferno. Granted little inferno is fun but for the price its more fitting on a phone. And where in the world are the N64 VC games? Te wii launched with at least 2 and had like 5 by now. Where are the GBA games? Those should be on 3DS by the way I mean its only fitting? Why yer putting them on wii u is beyond me.

What is the deal here?... Is there some behind the scenes reason as to why everyone hates wii u? Why dont games like Grand Theft Auto 5, BIOSHOCK, Battlefield, FIFA, The Devision, Tomb Raider come to Wii U ??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I dont understand. Whats the road block? Are they so difficult to develope for. Does Nintendo not pay them to bring games. Does Sony and Microsoft pay them to bring games? It's not the customer fault I know that. This demand argument is BS! Straight up.
Maybe i got it all wrong... Maybe Nintendo doesn't want these games. ? You think thats the reason? There has to be some reason... This just doesnt make sense.

Dormouse commented on Review: Spelunker (3DS eShop / NES):

As a kid I played this game for hours. I remember it being a lot of fun... so i downloaed it when it released and its horrible. Yet for some reason I keep playing it. It's horribly awesome! I feel like if i can beat this game i can beat cancer, sorta thing.

Dormouse commented on Satoru Iwata Aims for "Critical Mass" of Wii U...:

The 3DS is for me, now the greatest handheld they've ever made! It's amazing. I believe the Wii U has the potential to be their greatest console ever! All these heavy hitters release by early 2014 just imagine what theyll have in another year or two from now? Mind blowing. Possibilities endless.

Dormouse commented on Earthbound Arrives on the Wii U eShop Today:

Wow........ $10. !!!!!! ???? Aren't SNES games $7? Why is this more? I don't care if idiots wanna pay $300 for the original cart on eBay its not worth $300 to me no game is.... But didn't Japan get this for free? Or .30 cents converted currency for the fami anniversary? .. why not just give it to us for 7... Why $10? I'll still buy it i guess just to show Nintendo yes Americans like games like this and yes release and make more games like this.

Dormouse commented on Preview: Rayman Legends:

This was the only game Demo available and part of the reason i got a Wii U. Sad that it got delayed but i still wanna play it. Day one purchase for me also! Also excited for Watch dogs and i hope the division gets ported later.

Dormouse commented on Talking Point: Pikmin 3 Shows the First Shoots...:

@JaxonH you're right, i take it back. Donkey Kong is not crap. In fact its one of the most challenging platformers ive played in a long time. I guess I was just a little disappointed when i found out that Tropical Freeze is what theyve been working on this whole time. I was really hoping for a starfox revival or even another metroid prime esque type game.
I'm also a little bummed that even those these games are great they weren't repeased at launch. I've had a wii U since launch and C'mon tell me you havent been itching to play something a little more amazing than NSMBU.
Alotta VC games I already have i still got my NES SNES N64 GBA ETC. I guess I'm just impatient? But rightfully so.... It has been a bit of a drought this year i dont think there's any denying that.
But one thing good has come out of this situation for me at least and thats, that I got a 3DS a couple months ago and MaN! The 3DS is like Am/PM commercial slogan "Too much Good stuff!" I'm loving it! Im convinced its the best handheld theyvd made ever and I have them all! Been playing since the original gameBoy.
My wife introduced me to a game called Animal crossing and well im addicted. Also recommend the star ship damerey, Luigis Mansion 2, Mario Kart7, can't wait for dream team. Glad that thing has been keeping me busy! So in a way that helps a lot. I'm sure the Wii U in time will have tons of games.

Also whoever says wii u isnt as powerful as PS4 or Xbox One ... I say it doesnt matter, the wii U looks beautiful regardless and Nintendo games are timeless I play N64 all the time... How much can peopld say that about PS one? Pshh

Dormouse commented on Talking Point: Pikmin 3 Shows the First Shoots...:

I'm a Wii U owner and sadly the only game I'm somewhat interested in is Donkey Long and that's only because its the prettiest turd in the toilet. The games I'm actually looking forward to and am excited about are; Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros ....gee I guess that's it. Mario 3D World doesn't appeal to me. I wish it did but it does not.
I Hope Nintendo makes their own FPS. Not that I love the genre but there's no denying it has a huge following and knowing Nintendo you'd know it would be very different not your typical shooter. That's why I'm hoping they make one... Its be so interesting to see a shooter with animated graphics from Nintendo. Also Metroid should make a comeback. Really hope they make a new StarFox. Or revive some really obscure NES franchise.
If i heard about these games, I'd be really excited about owning a Wii U but as of right now... Ive got buyers remorse and will continue to feel that way at least for another year unfortunately.

I remember the NES being the video game syatem I played next to Atari. I hated Atari after i got a taste of Super Mario Bros. Duck Hunt and Donkey Kong Jr., Speluker. Then we got Sega genesis and wow that was cool but Snes was just as good if not better. But the console that really blew my mind was Nintendo 64. I don't think there will ever be something that groundbreaking again... Oh wait the 3DS sure is making an awesome case. Anyway this old kid is a ramblin n' Rollin. Can't wait for the next 30yrs of Nintendo.

After some thought.... I actually like Luigi's Mansion : Dark Moon better than 2. Dark moon is actually in the game. Adding "2" is just so common. I'm tired of numbers after a game.. plus sometimes its off putting to people who havent played previous games. People think its like movies if they dont see them in order perhaps they won't get it

Dormouse commented on Your View: The Issues of Collecting and Owning...:

I like having a physical copy of the game. I only download games if they are download only titles that can't be sold in physical form. I once downloaded 10G of music from iTunes and backed it up on an external drive but lost it all in a move. When my computer broke shortly after I was out all that music I paid for over the years.
This was my only problem with going digital. Its just nicer having a physical collection to me. Sorta like a bookshelf or or DVD case. But perhaps later i will make the switch once it becomes even more the norm.
