As someone already mentioned here, make the main games first before flooding us with spin-offs. That's why e3 blew up in their face. Free download or not.

Also, as a Nintendo fan I think they have completely lost touch with what the fans want. Especially in the western world. I'm not very happy to be a Wii U owner right now. I really hope they don't call the NX the "NEW Wii U. I'm saying this jokingly, but I will seriously not put it past them. :(

GTWarrior77 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Asks for Fan Trust With Metro...:

All Nintendo had to do was announce that a new full Metroid game is coming before announcing Metroid FF and all this negativity could have been avoided. Especially since it's been 5 years since Metroid Other M. The same can be said for the Animal Crossing Festival game.

GTWarrior77 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Retail Games of 201...:

The only game on this list which interests me is Star Fox Zero and that's a maybe at best.

I'm still enjoying MK8 and Splatoon at the moment and I am finishing off Zelda Wind Waker HD, but after that I'm in trouble. Picking up a PS4 to fill the gap because I see a lean 12 to 18 months ahead for the Wii U.

GTWarrior77 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda...:

Reading Reggie's response to the first question where he says, "the way we view E3...." and talking about not showing games long before release, etc makes me angry. What they don't realise, is that the way the customer views it and perceives it, is what is important.
I will have no problem with the spin-off Metroid and Animal Crossing games if I knew that AAA versions of those games were on the way. And there is the problem, Nintendo keeping quiet. They should have at the very least announced a Metroid and Animal Crossing Game, regardless of when it's coming out.
As much as I like NIntendo, they seem to be very detached from what their customers want.

Their approach to E3 actually doesn't make sense to me. The entire gaming world is focussed on E3 and that's the time to win new customers for your brand. The Directs, though great, is mainly for current Nintendo gamers and unless you follow Nintendo, you will not be aware of the Direct shows. So, E3 is the place to wow the world with all your great games. This E3 was a marketing fail for Nintendo.

GTWarrior77 commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

With all their years in the games industry, they really could have ( and should have) done better. They know people want Metroid, they know people want Animal Crossing and yet they give us half baked versions of those games and expect consumers to be happy with that? At least one BIG surprise would've been nice. E3 is not over yet, but I'm not holding my breath for any surprises.

@Dpullam Have you bought the game yet? How fast is your internet? My reason for asking is that I've been enjoying Splatoon online and that's on a 1mb line over wifi. I've had less than a handful of disconections since launch day. Far less issues than what I saw other forum members report.

Surely we should be able to use the wiimote+nunchuck in conjunction with the gamepad. Then use the gamepad for superjumps only during battles.
I'm fine with the gamepad for myself, but I don't see a problem for those who want other options.

Animal Crossing Wii U. Will be VERY surprised if this doesn't get some attention at E3. As a grown man in his late 30's, should I be this exicited for a video game? Haha. Star Fox is the only other game I'm really looking forward to right now. Couldn't care less about another Mario game. The 3DS definitely needs some love also. Looking forward to a nice surprise or 2 at E3.

GTWarrior77 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 1st...:

People seem generally pleased with the Direct which is a good thing. Personally, Mario Kart 8 announcement at the end saved it for me. Nothing else really grabbed me. Nice to see N64 games finally arriving.

I wonder if we will see Animal Crossing on the Wii U?

GTWarrior77 commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

@roadbuc - I'm also in my 30's and because I don't have countless hours for gaming like I had when I was younger, I tend to gravitate towards games that are easy to pick up and have a quick play. Games like Smash Bros and Mario Kart 8 are perfect for this.

GTWarrior77 commented on Video: Your Heart Will Melt At This Sega Genes...:

Awsome video.
I was 13 back when this video was made. Had some great times with the Sega Megadrive. I borrowed a friend's Megadrive and was instantly hooked. Coming from the NES at the time, my jaw was on the floor when I saw the graphics.

GTWarrior77 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Pas...:

Picked this up immediately upon release.

Playing the top down Zelda like level in Super Mario 3D World, I couldn't help but want a top down Zelda game in glorius HD. Who knows, anything can happen. Naturally this should not be in the place of a full scale 3d title.

GTWarrior77 commented on Review: Super Mario 3D World (Wii U):

@ThomasBW84 - Thanks for answering my question regarding the pro controller.

It's funny, a lot people have been wanting more unique uses of the gamepad, but I am quite content to use only my pro controller wherever possible. Even during the Wii's lifespan, I longed for a more conventional control scheme.

Don't get me wrong, I'm still hyped for this game and by no means is the occasional mandatory use of the gamepad a deal breaker.

GTWarrior77 commented on Preview: Super Mario 3D World:

@NEXTGENRULE - No doubt mistakes were made with the launch of the Wii U but just remember, the PS4 isn't out yet. I hope for your sake (and mine) that the PS4's launch goes as well as you are anticipating.

As far as Mario 3D World is concerned, I'm very excited. It feels like I'm back in the 80's waiting for a new Mario game to launch.

GTWarrior77 commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd October (Europe):

No downloads for me this week. Just a fresh retail copy of Zelda Wind Waker HD. Should be a treat. Never played the original.

Lots of Zelda love this year. Also looking forward to Link Between Worlds.

GTWarrior77 commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I'm not a fan of GTA at all. I'm also in my 30's (36) and I don't have time for pointless violence, sex and bad language in games. Apparently these games are for the "mature" crowd. Nothing mature about that in my opinion.
Another issue is the multitude of kids who will be playing this. I can appreciate the game from a technical perspective, but the moral issues I have with this game overrides everything else.
Unless I'm playing a racing simulator, I don't want my games to be realistic. As Waveboy mentioned earlier, I like my games to be whimsical and colorful.
And above all, I must be able to play a game with a clear conscience.
