Been gaming since I was a toddler with my dad's NES. I am an avid reader, writer and critic. I work at a busy local restaurant, and I'm confused about where my life is going. You?

Zelda Wii U (I hope it has an official subtitle soon), Star Fox, Majora's Mask 3D, Uncharted 4, Arkham Knight, Bloodborne, No Man's Sky, Witcher 3, Halo 5 and Rise of the Tomb Raider.... 2015 is looking really good right now.

Gamecubed commented on Masahiro Sakurai Admits That Super Smash Bros....:

I wouldn't blame him for wanting to step down from the series. Obviously, it's a ton of work and stress, but also I imagine Sakurai doesn't want to keep doing the same series and wants to do other things (maybe even go out on his own). I think that's human nature.
Nonetheless, I hope he has a nice, long vacation. Thank you for all that you do.

Gamecubed commented on Latest Sales Data For Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:

I'm pretty much in that bracket of the original Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald and Melee customers , so yeah, I'm not surprised.
Though I absolutely hated Pokemon Black/White, I liked X/Y and I'm enjoying Alpha Sapphire.

I also feel like Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon was another attempt by Nintendo to get the GBA/GC crowds to come back around (it worked on me).

Gamecubed commented on Masahiro Sakurai Explains Why Mewtwo Isn't Pai...:

I think Nintendo is cautious of DLC, and that's okay. They know it's a slippery slope and they can come under a lot of fire very quickly if they screw something up. The DLC offerings they've done thus so far have been quite generous and meaningful compared to what most of us are used to. The MK8 DLC is fantastic.

As far as DLC characters go.... meh. Nintendo games are often packed to the ceiling with content, anything else is just icing on the cake. I don't think I'll get Smash on 3DS, so I probably won't get Mewtwo. I hardly used him in Melee anyway. But if they were to do DLC characters..... they have to have Bayonetta!

I agree that the Wii U does have some awesome exclusives available (and on the way). But the point is that if you wanted to play the next Call of Duty or Assassin's Creed or NHL game, you have to buy another console. That's money a lot of people don't have.

I'd like to assume that anyone who got the 8GB model (such as myself, since it was on sale) probably purchased some sort of USB external storage device. Of course, there's always a handful who don't realize this. You don't want to exclude people.
Then again, by the time it comes to the Wii U, anyone who would have purchased that version may have already bought it on some other system.

Gamecubed commented on Junichi Masuda Talks Pokémon Snap and Listeni...:

The Wii U would be perfect for Pokemon Snap. Make it free-roam instead of on-rails, throw in the new Pokemon, have some nice graphics, add online and miiverse and there you go.
We need this and a sequel/successor to Colosseum/XD.

EDIT: Or we could have a Snap mini-game/mode in a Colosseum/XD successor.

Gamecubed commented on Rumour: Concept Work from Former Next Level Ga...:

I feel like if this ever was on the table (or still is) that it's a 3DS game. I wouldn't be opposed to the idea since I'd like to see Metroid on both 3DS and Wii U. They did a great job with Punch Out and Luigi's Mansion, so they've proven themselves.

Good call on Miyamoto's part. You want a spin-off to feel different and unique yet a bit familiar, not the other way around.
Sometimes you just have to step in and say "no, this is how you should do it. Do it this way".

I'm probably going to get one of the official reissued controllers. I also have three Gamecube controllers from my Gamecube days... so I don't really need anything else.

I'm anticipating the announcement of Gamecube and N64 VC games in the new year.

Gamecubed commented on Bayonetta 2 Director Eager to "Nurture" the Se...:

Have this on preorder and I'm excited. Reading some of the comments, it's good to see I'm not the only one either. The game deserves to sell well.
It's good to hear that they have had a positive experience working with Nintendo on the project. If all goes well with sales and whatnot, perhaps Bayo 3 could one day be in the cards for the Wii U as well?

I feel like Bayonetta is a good fit with Nintendo too. On the other systems it has a lot to compete with and it often gets drowned out by other games, whereas it's able to stand out amongst Nintendo's already stellar lineup.

Gamecubed commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

You can tell the team did put effort into the NFS port for Wii U, it shows. It's a really great game. I enjoy it. It's like the Mass Effect 3 port. You can tell Straight Right tried much like Criterion to make it unique and fun in the little time they were given.

Who is to blame here? EA were being their usual selves, obviously. But Nintendo has done little to promote third party titles on their system in general. Why aren't they saying "Hey, you can get COD Ghosts, Assassin's Creed and Mario on the same system"?
