What a sad day My prayers go out for all his family and friends. May they be comforted in this time of loss. 55 is very young. It's just a reminder once again how short this life can be. None of us know the hour...
GTWarrior77 commented on Animal Crossing Series Director Explains the a...:
@Aromaiden In my opinion it's because Nintendo is releasing spin-off titles when the fans were expecting full AAA versions of these games without announcing that the AAA versions are on the way.
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.

Am I tempted by this Amiibo range? Without a proper Animal Crossing game, NO!
GTWarrior77 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (...:
@JesWood13 - As long as we keep buying, they'll keep selling.
I'm yet to give OOT a go. Was a playstation 1 gamer during the N64 era so I never played it back in the day. Busy finishing off Wind Waker HD atm and then I'll be all over OOT.
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 Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:
So people thought that Iwata apologized. Why not leave the people to think that. It can only help as far as Nintendo's reputation is concerned. Sometimes people need to know when to stop talking. This is one of those times.
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.
GTWarrior77 commented on Star Fox Zero Doesn't Have Online Multiplayer,...:
@rjejr those n64 graphics can be very distracting lol
That's ok. Just add it to the long list of disappointments.
GTWarrior77 commented on The Splatoon Inkbrush Weapon is Set to Arrive ...:
@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.
GTWarrior77 commented on Parent Trap: Splatoon Gets Family Tested, ...:
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.
GTWarrior77 commented on Video: Here Is The First Footage Of 90s Arcade...:
This game is looking good. Love the old school feel.
@andyjlatham - during gameplay, there is a position indicator in the top right corner, so there will be multiple cars.

Up until now: Mario Kart 8. Looking forward to E3 to see if there are any new potential contenders for the top spot.
GTWarrior77 commented on Nintendo Has Unannounced Wii U Titles Which Wi...:
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 Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:
Not very happy about this at all. Oh well, should probably try and finish Windwaker HD while I wait. And of course there's MK8 to keep me busy. But that doesn't give you an excuse Nintendo to take your sweet time with this.
GTWarrior77 commented on Wii U System Update 5.3.1 Resolves Mario Kart ...:
Updating now. Smash next please.

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 Nintendo Reveals 11 amiibo Super Smash Bros. F...:
Toon Link, Mega Man and Sonic for me thank you very much.
GTWarrior77 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 5th...:
This Direct was ok.
I enjoyed Mario Kart 8 DLC, Splatoon, X and Shovel Knight becoming available for download.
Also Duck Hunt for VC and Smash.
GTWarrior77 commented on Expect To See More Spin-Off Titles Like Hyrule...:
@erv: What about Call of Mario: Advanced Mushroom
Mario FPS anyone?
GTWarrior77 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:
Super Smash Bros. Demo available after their broadcast tomorrow.
EU release date for Shovel Knights.
Mario Kart 8 DLC.

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 Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition Releas...:
I missed out on this one back in the day. Will definitely be picking it up. Hopefully a PAL version is not too far off.
GTWarrior77 commented on Weirdness: Listen To The Super Mario Theme On ...:
I couldn't keep the smile off my face while watching this video. Dang, I must have looked like an idiot. Thankfully no one saw me LOL.
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 Nintendo Confirms That Smash Bros. Isn't Lined...:
Not disappointed at all. I would've been surprised if the spring release date was legit. As long as Mario Kart 8 doesn't get delayed I'm happy.
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.
Great review. My copy is pre-ordered but unfortunately we are only getting the game on the 29th in my country. I'm quite excited for this one.
@ThomasBW84 - Can you play the single player campaign with the Pro Controller?
GTWarrior77 commented on Video: Watch Andre Agassi Get Beaten At Wii Sp...:
I enjoyed that.
GTWarrior77 commented on Video: This IronFall Tech Demo is Rather Impre...:
I'll be keeping my eye on this one. I've been looking for an excuse to finally pick up a circle pad pro. This might be it.
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 Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:
The plan is:
Lego City Undercover (Wii U) - collecting more goodies
Mega Man 2 (Wii U)
Animal Crossing New Leaf
Would've love to play Zelda Wind Waker HD this weekend but the retail release has been delayed till 15 Nov in my country
@ThomasBW84 - The preview mentions support for the Wii U Pro Controller in multiplayer. Can we use the pro controller during the single player campaigne? I do hope so.
GTWarrior77 commented on Mario and Luigi Wii Remote Plus Controllers Ju...:
I want the Mario one. I can see this Christmas season being an expensive one for me. Please, don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining.
GTWarrior77 commented on Mighty No. 9 Confirmed for 3DS:
Wii U version for me. Looking forward to this one.Might pick up the 3DS version if it's that good.

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:
@LordJumpMad - Yeah, bring on the baby games. lol
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.
