grumblebuzzz commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (North America):

(insert my weekly "Where the F___ is Zero Mission! Bleh! You hate Metroid, NoA!" rant here) Now with that out of the way, Splatooooooon! I'm so excited, even though I won't be able to online really at home.



grumblebuzzz commented on iOS Title Catch The Rabbit Sure Does Remind Us...:

I just don't get these clone games like this. Why make the character look exactly like Nabbit? Nobody would probably even put two and two together that this is essentially a rip off of the Nabbit sequences in NSMBU if he didn't look just like Nabbit. Why not give the character a different look so as to avoid the inevitable cease and desist letter?



grumblebuzzz commented on Nintendo Download: 30th April (North America):

Yup, just porting Paper Mario over from my Wii menu. Another blah week. Maybe now that they've put out all the N64 games they promised we can get Zero Mission next week? (And yes, I will complain about this every Thursday until it's finally released here.)



grumblebuzzz commented on Nintendo Direct: A Special Splatoon Direct is ...:

I'm mildly excited for it. As someone without a reliable internet connection for gaming though, I'm waiting for reviews to see if the single player content is worth the price for admission. Haven't been terribly impressed with the local 1-on-1 mode yet either, so this will essentially be a single player only experience for me if I pick it up.



grumblebuzzz commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

Even when Nintendo decides certain games are a good fit for Wii U, they hum-haw around with regional releases that are months and months apart. Virtual Console is a hot, honey boo-boo mess on Wii U in North America and they refuse to address the problem except by occasionally saying "LOOK! WE'RE DOING GAMES FROM (insert classic system name here) NOW!", then releasing one game from the announced system each week for a month after, then nothing else for months. Where are the Wii games they made such a big deal out of at the first of the year? Why are so many games (Kirby's Return to Dreamland, Metroid Zero Mission, Final Fantasy games, etc) available in other regions, but not in NA? They never follow through with anything beyond a one-month window following an announcement. I foresee us not getting another N64 or DS game until around fall/Christmas time after they release their 4 piddly little games they promised in the Direct.



grumblebuzzz commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

Nope. It will not have much of an effect on selling new hardware whatsoever. People who own a Wii U already will pick it up, no doubt, but if Smash Bros and Mario Kart didn't turn it into a rip roaring success, a new IP that doesn't have the built-in nostalgic fanbase definitely won't.



grumblebuzzz commented on Gallery: Splatoon Development Updates Show Off...:

I'm hesitant to get all hyped for it until they officially detail whether or not there is local multiplayer. I don't have a connection that supports online gaming, so until I know whether or not my nephew and I can play together in person, it's a no-go for me.



grumblebuzzz commented on Nintendo Download: 19th March (North America):

@faint: It apparently isn't that well-known considering several commenters have said, "There's a Klonoa 2??!!" so please don't try to act like I'm abnormal because I have never heard of this franchise. Also with 9 whopping votes, it doesn't seem like it's gonna be a big money maker for Nintendo of America like, oh, say a Metroid game and a Kirby game that have already been released in Europe would be. I am more so complaining about NoA's poor virtual console strategy than Klonoa 2 itself.



grumblebuzzz commented on Video: Guess What, Super Mario Sunshine Looks ...:

I don't get the reverence so many people seem to have for Sunshine. It must be a generational thing since I see a lot of folks talking about childhood whenever it's brought up and saying how it was their first Mario game. As someone in his 30's, I played this game in my early 20's and it's just okay to me. Possibly the worst 3D Mario game imo. A bad Mario game is still a great game, of course, but I don't need to see an HD version, a sequel, or a revisit to this game at all.



grumblebuzzz commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

Wow, way more "meh, still not buying" responses in the comment section than I figured there would be. I, for one, am foaming at the mouth for it. I think a lot of the lackluster response here is stemming from how different and "weird" this particular Zelda is because if this were a remake of Twilight Princess, people would be flipping out.



grumblebuzzz commented on Flipnote Studio 3D Free Download Details Point...:

Local sharing is only good for people in big households with multiple systems. Just like with Swapnote, it's pretty much worthless to most people if it isn't online. Yay, Nintendo! Protecting the innocence of children by neutering any online connectivity whatsoever! <_< Oh well, at least It's free. I'm sure I'll mess around with it a couple times before quickly losing interest.
