Dreamz commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

I have the Wii U and PC combo. A good gaming PC makes the PS4 and XBoxOne completely irrelevant, as it'll destroy the best the two of them can offer, while the Wii U has unique experiences you can't find anywhere else. It's the best of both worlds.

Dreamz commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

A cheap Wii bundle could make a killing in the Chinese market, but I understand the stance of letting Sony and MS throw cash at the market to figure it out before Nintendo comes in at a later point with a solid marketing plan built on their failings.

Dreamz commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I wish the article has emphasized that this poll is what we think the best Zelda game is, not what our favorite Zelda game is. I think that A Link to the Past is the best Zelda game (though to be fair, Windwaker HD wasn't far behind it), and thus it gets my vote. However, my favorite Zelda game is actually Ocarina of Time, followed by the original Legend of Zelda.

Dreamz commented on Talking Point: New Ideas, Not New IPs, Are The...:

A combination is best. I love Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc as much as the next person, but Nintendo can't survive just by spamming those titles alone every year. New IPs bring some much needed new life to the console.

Dreamz commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

Advertising and product placement have already infected just about everything. I'd rather not have it do the same to my game. So no, I won't be downloading the DLC. Even though it's free. Even if they were to pay me.

@Kirk

While I agree that it would have been amazing, it's unfortunately not feasible either monetarily (most sources still say that Nintendo is paying ~$100 per gamepad, and the vast majority of people aren't going to fork over ~$300 for additional controllers) or in terms of hardware capability - the Wii U's GPU has to render the gamepad video separately . In order to be able to render five separate video streams simultaneously, the Wii U would need to be at minimum 3x more powerful than it currently is.

@earthboundlink
You're not going to see Skyward Sword style controls again. The new game will confirm to the current Wii U controller, not the last generation controller.

While I liked the control of Skyward Sword, even the MotionPlus wasn't enough of an improvement to make it work as well as it could have.

Dreamz commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Outlines His Work Routine and...:

I can't say I disagree with Miyamoto on the VR issue. I know that for myself, personally, I'm super excited about Occulus and Sony's version. However, like Miyamoto I'm not sure the widespread appeal is really there to make is a ubiquitous feature in the gaming world.

Dreamz commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

@Kirk

Maybe I'm misinterpreting what you're trying to convey, but how is Nintendo supposed to fix their major issue (severe lack of 3rd party support) with a convention that's designed simply to build hype for upcoming games? It's not like they can somehow build help build support for something that isn't there. The only thing that's really going to fix the 3rd party support is pushing more console units, which MK8 and SSB seems to be addressing currently (as well as the plethora of other interesting games like Zelda, Splatoon, etc).

Dreamz commented on Poll: Your Favourite Showing from Nintendo Dur...:

Do I think that Splatoon will be anywhere near as popular as Smash in the long run, or even that it will even be a franchise? Possibly, possibly not. But I'm simply trying to ponder what the poll results mean. Everything you've said in the previous two posts is merely your own projected personal conjecture.

However, even for an informal poll like this, the fact that a previously unknown title beat, by a significant margin, the main title of the show (a massive amount of Nintendo's E3 coverage revolved entirely around Smash - the amiibos, the character reveals, the Smash invitational, etc) is a really telling thing to me.

Dreamz commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

@2Sang
Splatoon was my favorite game shown, so I was super happy with the coverage it received. Given that Splatoon currently has double the votes that Smash Bros does in the poll, I highly doubt I'm alone in that stance...

Dreamz commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's GamePad Bet Could Pa...:

I don't ever use the Off-TV functionality myself, but I still really like the gamepad. All else aside, it's a really comfortable controller, which is quite an accomplishment since I find most large controllers to be a bit much for people like myself with small to medium sized hands.

The vast majority of the time I use the gamepad, even though I have a pro controller - the pro controller really only gets used when I have other people with me playing local multiplayer.

Dreamz commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U eShop Games - Summer...:

Wow, the editor's picks for this list are really bad, to the point where I wonder how many of these games they've actually played. NES Remix being #1 in particular is rather horrifying.

Child of Light at the very least should have been #1 on the list. Scram Kitty, Giana Sisters, Little Inferno, and Stick It to the Man should have rounded out the rest of the top five.

(Note: I didn't include Ittle Dew or 1001 Spike as imagine they were likely released after this list was put together.)
