Gerbwmu commented on Super Mario Maker Back on Top in Japan as 3DS ...:

Wonder what Sony will sell next week? Can they get over 30K with PS4?

Nice to see Wii U keeping up momentum from Splatoon and now Mario Maker. Too bad there wasn't another title like Zelda or Starfox making an appearance in November/December. Still if 2016 is packed with releases maybe the Wii U can chug away and see 15-20 mill in sales before it retires into the sunset.



Gerbwmu commented on Excellent Shovel Knight Sales Prove That Indie...:

Considering the hardware numbers, I'd say 20% for Wii U is pretty impressive. I wonder how many they have sold over all......1.5 million.....2 million? I think I remember a report about them being close to a million sold not long after it's release.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 1st October (Europe):

I have a feeling the lack of 3DS VC points towards a unified eShop for what ever hardware is in development and that eShop will be a continuation of the Wii U version



Gerbwmu commented on Retailers In North America Merge Wii U & 3DS L...:

I over heard a Nintendo rep talking about the changes coming a month or so ago in Meijer (Michigan based Walmart). Meijer never even had a Wii U logo and still had everything under Wii so this will be a good change Marketing wise and it is nice to see Nintendo spending the cash to make their products look better



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 24th September (North America):

Anyone recommend Legend of Kay? Wondering if my 6 year old would enjoy it. He plays a ton of the Splatoon single player and SM3DW. For $12 I might bite......or wait till xmas and buy the disc when it inevitably drops to $9.99



Gerbwmu commented on This Is The Last Real Console Cycle, Proclaims...:

If you make enough predictions you are bound to be right once in a while. For example I predict there will be a game releasing for Wii U in February, that Sony will sell the most home consoles this holiday, that Microsoft will buy out a competitor before the new year, Thomas will write an editorial about how much he loves donuts, and the Super Bowl 50 champion will be the Green Bay Packers.



Gerbwmu commented on Guide: How to Unlock Plague Knight in Shovel K...:

I didn't find the game to be very hard....not after the 1st few levels anyway. The power ups almost make the game too easy.

Nice for people just getting the game though if you want to play through both characters at the same time.

Plague Knight has upped the difficulty for me. I struggle controlling his jumps



Gerbwmu commented on Miyamoto: Star Fox Zero Has Been Delayed, "I A...:

Maybe we will get a 4 or 5 player split screen dog fight mode now?

I'm not concerned with the delay bwcause I probably wasnt buying this in December anyway. Maybe now i can get in extra Xenoblade playing time.

All of a sudden 2016 looks to be packed with games I want.....but 2015 looked that way this time last year and so far I've bought Splatoon and I didnt even buy that my son did.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Direct Broadcasts Will Continue Despi...:

@rjejr - I think part of the gap in Directs were because of Iwata's health. I think we would have had them more regularly otherwise.

I'm not against something new though. Maybe Kimishima's Korner or something that allows him to be himself if he wants to be visible. I think a "Nintendo's Treehouse" could be the new direct though doing the same sort of things but keeping it a little more localized.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Direct Broadcasts Will Continue Despi...:

There has to be someone in the company that has a little silly in them. My guess is someone else was writing up the ideas anyway so you just need someone who enjoys doing it and doesn't mind a laugh or two at their own expense.

I'd volunteer if they have no one else who will step up



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: The Wild And Wacky World Of WarioWare:

I think Game and Wario does a good job of showing off the gamepad and Wii U . I really think they should include it, Wii Party U, and NintendoLand as a family bundle for the Holidays with 1 Motion Plus controller.



Gerbwmu commented on Review: Brave Tank Hero (Wii U eShop):

I feel like a tank game would be an easy endeavor. Split screen 4 or 5 player multiplayer, online multiplayer, twin stick track controls, and some silly story where lots of stuff blows up. Shame this seems so poorly done. Maybe we can get an Advance Wars vehicle shooter game someday?



Gerbwmu commented on Some Western Splatoon Players Would Prefer Not...:

Hahahahahahahaha..........oh these people weren't joking?

Usually a sizable group of Asian players when I play and I don't notice any difference in overall skill or issues with lag.

If someone is kicking your butt.....exit and then jump back in the lobby and find someone else to kick your butt.

If I lag it usually means my connection is going to die and that seldom happens maybe 1 out of every 20 matches



Gerbwmu commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

Uhhhhh Nintendo......why are you locking something so pointless as co-op behind an amiibo.....I mean I want value from my $12.99 figurine before I put it back in it's container and sell it for $35.99......good thing I have 2 so the unopen Shovel Knight Amiibo can go on my collection shelf.



Gerbwmu commented on Review: Runbow (Wii U eShop):

I really wish i could get the 15% off the indie games that had the E3 demo......sadly I took a family vacation then so I guess no discount.

This looks like a game that would be a ton of fun though when the house is full of people. May have to download it tomorrow



Gerbwmu commented on Super Robot Wars BX Battles Its Way to Number ...:

@rjejr - if NX is some sort of handheld hybrid that will play on the TV then I'm probably getting 2 or 3 as well. As someone who can't get into the handheld iterations of Nintendo products, if I had a gamepad that would go anywhere and still play on my big screen I'd be a buyer. I feel like I miss out on a lot of great games but the GBA (which I had and never used) games on VC have proved that I will sit on my couch and play them for hours when given the chance.



Gerbwmu commented on Review: Devil's Third (Wii U):

So proof of concept but technical issues due to its development history?

Seems like Devils 4th might be something worth looking into for Valhalla Games. Maybe they can avoid some of the uncertainty that plagued this game.



Gerbwmu commented on Pokémon Brawler Pokkén Tournament Coming To ...:

Queue up all the Wii U isnt dead yet followed by what the (bleep) is Nintendo thinking sending NX out to die.

This is good news for Pokémon and Fighter fans alike. I'm surprised they didnt have a Direct to announce this. I wonder if Directs will be shelved for the time being?



Gerbwmu commented on Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams Director's Cut G...:

I'm wondering if this is brilliant or a waste of money.......the Wii U retail release schedule is bare and some 1 million new holiday Wii U owners will be looking for games. I doubt it would take many sales to make the venture worth it.



Gerbwmu commented on Splatoon eSports Tournament Series To Be Launc...:

I'm good in the context of general online play with Splatoon but I doubt I could hang with the elite. Still nice to see Splatoon getting constant hype and marketing for 4 straight months. Imagine if the Wii U was given this kind of exposure.



Gerbwmu commented on It's Autobots vs Decepticons in the Upcoming T...:

@rjejr - Maybe we can start rumors that this is going to follow a Nintendo Direct where a Nintendo made Transformers game will be coming to Wii U in 2016. It is being made by Retro and is cell shaded and based on the early 80's cartoon. It is titled Transformers (Not Metroid) Prime
