Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

If they feel like Zelda will be ready for their February release they could always sell Deluxe Wii U's with a Zelda eShop code as a holiday push for sales. MK8 / Smash Wii U bundle with a code for Zelda would probably get them dame sales as last holiday.

It does concern me with the timing of all this news. I hope a direct and the E3 info help clarify where Nintendo is heading as a gaming company.

Now I only have 3 games I really want this year which is better on my budget though.



Gerbwmu commented on Community Interview: Give Us Your Affordable S...:

I would like to know about controller options for the multi player modes and if this is successful will they consider future versions based on the universe but maybe different genres for example Steamworld Dig vs Steamworld Heist



Gerbwmu commented on Opinion: Splatoon Is to Shooters what Mario Ka...:

What is interesting is the amount of excitement for this game by the people who have published the previews (Not all of which have been Nintendo Fan Sites). As of late, it seems games are getting a lot of hype only for a large group to be less then enthusiastic about the game upon release. To see the excitement, and to know that the solo campaign has merit means that I will probably pick this game up. Hopefully there is a Nintendo Direct in the future that will surprise me with a good local multiplayer component as well!



Gerbwmu commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

The story and games seem to be designed to allow for any story to really fit in the "universe" so I don't think it would be difficult for Nintendo to pull it off if the developers decided to go that a game jam game though.......maybe? Who knows



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Share Prices Continue to Climb in Res...:

Hope Nintendo sells some stock so when it falls back down in a few months/weeks then can buy up more shares and have more control over themselves. Being the CEO of a publically traded company has to be annoying....other then the being rich thing of course



Gerbwmu commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

So companies with different expertise are working together using each others strengths? Probably doesn't hurt anything as long as it doesn't go as poorly as the Nintendo Playstation or the CDi? Looks more like a way to improve their online infrastructure and make it easier to develop for the App stores.

As a marketing tool this is probably a smart move as long as they play nice together



Gerbwmu commented on The Man Behind Fluidity And Stealth Inc Discus...:

@Quorthon - Star Fox lost me after N64......I wanted it to stick with flying and they switched it up trying to make it more of a Shadows of the Empire and less of a Rogue Squadron. Just wasn't what I wanted from it.

I'm interested to see what the Wii U version becomes. I really hope it is closer to 64 then it is Adventures.

White Space looks like that type if it makes it to Wii U I'd probably buy it.



Gerbwmu commented on Swedish Newspaper Questions The European Relea...:

The game has a right to exist.........that ends the debate. To say otherwise is to contradict yourself. There is no way to argue for the freedoms of 1 adult by taking them away from another lawful citizen.

The game isn't going to change how parents raise their kids or the friends you have. It is your social circle and environment that dictates how you treat other people. My children won't be passive and tolerant because of a lack of violence and bigotry in video games....they will be that way because I will teach them respect for all people....even those I may dislike or disagree with.



Gerbwmu commented on TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT, The Game Freak and ...:

A year ago the complaints about nothing but platformers being on Nintendo systems was the internet whine. Now people are losing their minds about an indie level platformer skipping Wii U and 3DS.

My guess is Sega and GameFreak see an opportunity to give a solid 2D platformer to customer basis that are lacking. Game looks like it has promise but I already have a ton of games similar in nature on my Wii U so they wouldnt sell it to me and I'm sure I'm not alone in having enough 2D platformers to play right now.

Not to mention if you make it for PC, XB1, or PS4 you pretty much made it for the other 2 so you might as well port it to all 3 platforms.



Gerbwmu commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

Yeah.....I see no issues with their tweet. Isn't that the idea behind their business? Find stuff here you can't find anywhere else, sell stuff here for more because you find people who want it and are willing to pay more to get it.

I realize there are fans who would like access to the pre orders and we all hate scalpers, unless we are fortune enough to buy something that we can sell for 5 times the price, but I think we are being overly emotional if we condemn eBay for promoting their business.



Gerbwmu commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Still Set for May as Online e...:

Excited to see what is in the 2nd DLC pack. Seems like a Direct has too be coming soon. Many releases this month and a pretty packed schedule of Nintendo published content coming the rest of the year. I expect a Direct on a regular basis this year.



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: A Summary of the Xenoblade Chronicles...:

@RadicalYoseph - that's possible. I was thinking the end of this game maybe linked to the space station universe creation with a sequel following before it ties in to Xenoblade. It could just as easily be the world created in the ending as well.....or not related in any form. Guess we will find out.



Gerbwmu commented on This Xenoblade Chronicles X Hardware Bundle fo...:

@rjejr - The fact that they announced localization immediately after the game was announced tells me they are learning a little bit. It seems like some of the choices being made lately are pushing toward what the "internet crowd" wants. We shall see.

I could see them doing a limited run of special bundles through GameStop. I think if they announced that it would guarantee it sell out....even though most would be in the hands of scalpers. That might be the best way to push a few million consoles honestly. Limited special edition Splatoon bundle at Best Buy. Limited special edition XCX bundle at GameStop. Limited special edition Mario Maker bundle at Target. Scalpers would be all over them.



Gerbwmu commented on This Xenoblade Chronicles X Hardware Bundle fo...:

This should push a decent amount of Wii U's in Japan. I'd like to see something like this for the west too. There are a group of people waiting for this game in order to get a Wii U and a bundle like this would help push a few more sales I'm sure.

I'm hoping XCX makes it to the US by September!



Gerbwmu commented on Video: You NEED To Play Metroid Prime Trilogy:

Ok.....quick question for everyone who has played this to death. Is the - button for the scanner weird to get use to. I have a hard time switching from the gun and I assume I'm missing something. Hold it down.....hit z while tapping the minus button? Or is it just finicky
