GooRoo commented on GameStop Plans to Close Around 120 Stores in t...:

I usually get a street pass in there, and they are much more knowledgeable than any other store around here. They are my first stop for Skylanders merchandise for that reason (I just get a blank stare at Wal Mart and Target never bothers to put their merchandise out half the time). Still, I buy most of my games at Best Buy because of a better reward program and Gamers Club Unlocked.



GooRoo commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

Yup no bundle discount — something I was hoping for — and a real head-scratcher to push the Wii U version back that far when the system is struggling. Note that I say this based on the article and without having watched the direct — plan on checking it out tomorrow morning while I'm on the exercise bike. :)

I'll still get both.



GooRoo commented on Walmart Announces Foray Into Pre-Owned Games:

I hope they offer a good trade-in value out of the gate. I have a copy of NBA Live 14 for PS4 just itching to take a permanent vacation from my home. :) On the other hand, I collect Nintendo titles so I won't be trading any in.



GooRoo commented on Ninterview: Aaron "NintendoTwizer" Norton and ...:

Amazing collection.

One of the biggest mistakes in my life was bulk-selling all my old games and gaming systems. I had nothing like this guy, but I sold everything up to the Gamecube and had maybe 60-70 NES games, 20 SNES, 10 64, and 10 GC. Sigh. I wish Nintendo would make retro consoles and cartridge games. I would love to have it all again. Most used stuff I find looks to be in pretty spotty condition.



GooRoo commented on Retro Studios Talks Up Wii U And Has Been Work...:

And as far as horsepower goes, I think the Wii U's capabilities suit the Nintendo dynamic nicely. SM3DW and DKTF look amazing on the system. Maybe the system would struggle with something like The Order 1886 or MLB 14 The Show or any of these more detailed PS4 games — I don't know that much about the nitty-gritty tech specs and how they all work — but for Nintendo games at least, I think the Wii U has proven to be a very hearty and capable machine.



GooRoo commented on LEGO The Hobbit Questing Onto Wii U and 3DS in...:

This will be the first Lego game I don't buy on day one. Haven't seen the movies yet (waiting for a boxed set w/ extended cuts of all three) so by then it should be in the bargain bin anyway. Have way too big of a backlog, anyway (still haven't started Pikmin 3!).



GooRoo commented on Rumour: Next Skylanders Title Will Feature Veh...:

Looks like a new figure...the orange guy with two hammers!
My initial reaction to vehicle toys is a negative. I'm fine if they make vehicle toys independent of the game, but I don't really want a huge portal big enough for co-op players to each place a vehicle on it.
I was hoping the next game would just feature all new characters and new gameplay ideas.
Also, please no world building like Infinity.



GooRoo commented on Review: Steel Diver: Sub Wars (3DS eShop):

I kind of glossed over this during the direct. I was more excited for Trozei and Real Deal Baseball. I've DL'ed the F2P version but haven't touched it yet. This review has made me decide to give it a shot. :)



GooRoo commented on Video: Animal Crossing Fails To Provide A Deci...:

I've seen two scorps, caught one and didn't get my net out in time to nab the other. I got stung instead and was reset at my front door! I lucked into the tarantula last night. It was sitting right in front of me as I exited re-tail. Before I even got to the museum one of my villagers offered to buy it for 10k. I refused and donated it. :)



GooRoo commented on Gears of War Creator Loves Nintendo, Will Be W...:

I would love to see the Gears universe eventually make its way to Wii U. It's the only reason I own a 360 but I probably won't by an Xbox One for a number of reasons. I'll miss Gears, though; it's my favorite series.
