Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 18th September (North America):

@Xtremetdifan - Someone on eBay shows having sold 23 of the codes for $14.95. Not sure how he got that many codes but that is a heck of a way to scam $300 for nothing. Almost wish I would have sold mine instead of giving them to other NLife memebers. Darn morals........



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 18th September (North America):

Heads up to anyone in US, Best Buy has Black Ops 2, Zombi U, Ninja Gaiden, and Cabelas Big Hunt for Wii U on sale for $7.99 at least online...not sure about in store. Decent deals for new games if the titles interest you.

Edit: it is in store as well although the prices are still marked as regular price. Also today is the only day for the sale so if you are interested act fast.



Gerbwmu commented on Super Smash Bros. for 3DS Thrashes the Competi...:

Heck of a week for PS4. Destiny appears to have helped it greatly this week. Wii U continues to slow down but, if I'm not mistaken, Bayonetta is out this week? Hopefully Wii U sees a burst for a few weeks. Fatal Frame coming soon too.

Poor is falling fast. Japan looks like a lost cause for now.



Gerbwmu commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

How much did the music lower the score by?......cause as a gentlemen who prefers the heavy metal genre I kinda enjoy what I've heard of the unique take on the classic Zelda music.



Gerbwmu commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

When announced I figured this would be a no buy for me but I'm getting closer to purchasing this title. It's been so long since I've bough a button masher and it seems like great fun in an old school break my controller type of games. Who knows maybe I'll add this to my collection sometime before Christmas



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Advert Confirms November 21st Launch ...:

Hopefully this is correct. Should really help push some Wii U's for the Holidays and make a lot of gamers happy. I'm still waiting on Nintendo to announce something additional for the holiday. A surprise eShop release or something to add a little buzz in late September.



Gerbwmu commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

This reminds me of all the people throwing Wiimotes through their TV's......sure it happens occasionally but it is usually the fault of the user. As always though......the stupid wheel gets the greasy 3DS.....or something like that.



Gerbwmu commented on Weirdness: There Are Super Smash Bros. for Nin...:

So me the fool gave my codes away to NLife peeps when I could have sold them.......I could have bought a game or 2. Glad I shared mine and really....who is paying for a demo code that has 4 fighters. A fool and his money are soon parted I guess.



Gerbwmu commented on Game Schedule Outlined for Nintendo Treehouse ...:

Not really gonna watch any of this I guess. Already have a ton of info on the games being shown with the exception of 3ds remix and I have no real desire to watch Hyrule Warriors or Bayonetta after we just had directs for them. Captain Toad seems like it had decent coverage at E3 and beyond and Smash has been all over the place for months. Fantasy Life I guess deserves some love though.



Gerbwmu commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

Maybe Ubi will release its "secret held back game" in December CoughRabbidsCough and help support the U for one last holiday before we eventually see ZombiU2 in 2016 which will take place in Ireland......ya know cause U2.........never mind....its not funny or amusing



Gerbwmu commented on Yokai Watch 2 Back at Number One in Japan - Wi...:

Wii U numbers haven't been this low in a long time......hopefully Fatal Frame will give the numbers a boost.

Nice to see MK8 hanging strong and even Hyrule Warriors is still in the top 20.....gonna reach the 100K mark next week?



Gerbwmu commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

People complain that others are buying what they consider a crappy $1 game because it is ruining the Wii U and the eShop........then they complain that we don't buy enough crappy 3rd party games at $59.99 that are buggy and lacking content because we are ruining the Wii U and 3rd party which is I suppose to buy crappy games or not?



Gerbwmu commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

Simple....I won't buy it.....not because of some high moral ground but because the game doesn't appeal to me which is what i do with all games regardless of price, genre, publisher, developer.

@RCMADIAX - has provided me with 3 great experiences that both my sons and I have enjoyed. Not to mention POKER and BOX are actually pretty good educational tools disguised as games.

Buy what you like.....skip what you don't and if this helps his little company develop more of the titles that I like then good for him because I can skip what I don't like but I can't play what is never made.



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:

The N64 controller was my favorite until the gamepad......I guess my taste in controllers is outside the norm. The original XBox controller is still my most hated which is probably why MS has never sold me a console.......although the controllers since the original are good.



Gerbwmu commented on Interview: Six Miles Under Developer Discusses...:

Seems like a neat idea.....kinda wish it had a little more depth (2.5D?) for movement like Final Fight/Streets of Rage but that might be misguided nostalgia speaking on my behalf. I will keep an eye on this and I wish these guys well. Hopefully they can give us another quality title on eShop



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Introducing The New Challengers in Su...:

Voted for Little Mac because he is an iconic fighter in the Nintendo library but really Pac-Man and Mega Man are both legends and worthy of being included in this Nintendo based love-a-thon as well. Not sure if you can go wrong with any of the picks. Can't wait to see Mario, Pac-Man, Mega Man and Sonic all on the same screen at 1 time......the Mount Rushmore of video game characters!



Gerbwmu commented on Sorry, Contrary to Rumours the New Nintendo 3D...:

Doesn't really affect me.....but I know there are many on here who would like to import games or because of work/school/etc would like region free so hopefully Nintendo will figure out something that works for them and us



Gerbwmu commented on Yokai Watch 2 Finally Stripped of its Top Posi...:

Next week will be very interesting. I wonder what XB1 is going to do? Wii U seems to have 8500 as it's base sales now.

Will XB1 break 100K in it's first week? I would think there are a few people who were waiting for it? Can't imagine it would do much more then that but still should be decent for a week for them anyway. After that it may be in the hundreds.



Gerbwmu commented on Project: Nintendo 64x64:

Darn you NintendoLife......I seen the headline and news and thought Nintendo had announced something concerning either VC or I'm gonna have to return to my drinking this holiday afternoon



Gerbwmu commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

Casuals......or what ever you prefer to call them are the one's who keep the hobby profitable for the developers/publishers/hardware makers. If they aren't around then you are going to see a huge decline in who operates in this business. They also make it possible for more obscure games to be released by the major publishers. If you are making profit then you are more likely to allow a project that maybe a loser financially in the long run but will offer good publicity for your loyal customer base.

Do I like some of the stuff that is being pushed in the gaming market. No but if it helps fund the next game I do want to play then please keep releasing Nintendogs (never played the game so I can't really say if it's bad) or what ever else you can to keep your profit varied and the games that I want coming.



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

It doesn't matter to me which direction they go. The fun is not in the characters but in the tracks and the gameplay. From that perspective, I think expanding the roster would allow for more varied tracks.

I'm getting the DLC because the additional tracks will add to the variety but I never stopped playing any of the others so really it isn't needed.....but it will be fun.



Gerbwmu commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

I am perfectly content with a 32 race Mario Kart and will play it till my Wii U dies.......The DLC is not needed for me to enjoy this game......Having said that I will buy both of these when they come out in NA and it will add to an already great game.

I assume new games will incorporate all Nintendo Universes moving forward if for nothing else but to add to the variety of tracks.



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

I don't like the idea of bootleg copies of games (movies or music for that matter) but at the same time i have copies of all my music saved so if somebody is using it to preserve what they already own I don't have a problem with that. I just wonder what percentage of people are doing that compared to the people who are using it to pirate games.
