For those who are hating on DLC simply because it's DLC, you're really ignorant. Nintendo never has and never will sell an incomplete game. When they make DLC, it's solely as an addition to the established content and is NOT required to complete the game. It does what it's supposed to do: extend the playability of the game. Please inform yourselves before blindly hating something first.

"Fixing" was the wrong word to use Nintendolife. Brawl is perfect as it is ans doesn't need to be "fixed". What a shameful headline. That said, Project M looks really cool and I'll probably try it out just to play as all the cool character skins.

Guitardude7 commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

I think it's an overall smart move. The 3DS would cannibalize the Wii U sales if released simultaneously. Releasing the Wii U version later near Christmas puts it in a great spot. It gives parents a reason to buy their kids a Wii U for Christmas. Perfect. And to be honest Nintendo COULDN'T release the Wii U version first if they wanted to. If Rosalina's legs glitching out of her dress when she jumped was any indication, the Wii U version still needs more work and requires more resources to make. They need more time for the Wii U version and by releasing the 3DS version first, it will get consumers hyped for the console version which is obviously superior in every respect; graphics, sound, game modes, control and all. The only downside to this is that by having the two games have the same character roster, the Wii U version will lack any surprises for players which is unfortunate. However, where the game will lack in character surprises will make up for in game modes and better gameplay. So overall, this was the best and most realistic decision Nintendo could have possibly made. I look forward to picking up both versions at their respective launch dates.

I just bought Superstar Saga off of the virtual console so I'll be playing that primarily this weekend but I also intend to work on completing Super Mario 3D world 100%. I'm in World Star with only 3 levels of Green stars and stamps left for that world :D

My jaw hits the floor every time I see this game. It looks absolutely incredible and is unlike any Mario game I've ever seen before. I wish Super Mario 3D World looked this good. Not to say that game looked bad or anything but this looks like a freaking Pixar movie. This game shows off what the Wii U can really do.

Graphics aside though, the gameplay looks solid as a rock. The controls look tight, the new items look awesome and the sheer amount of things they're doing with the retro courses is ASTOUNDING. Some like Toads Turnpike and the N64 Rainbow Road are almost unrecognizable. If I looked at these courses without knowing they were retro courses I might not actually realize that they were from past games at first.

Add in a good variety of Kart choices, the customization feature from Mario Kart 7, solid online play and a staggering amount of playable characters and you have what just might be the best Mario Kart yet. I'M SO HYPED FOR THIS!

I predict:

-the official title will be revealed (C'mon it CAN'T be "for Wii U/for 3DS" that's just LAME)
-at least 3-4 new characters (it IS a Direct after all)
-details of adventure mode
-some information about online play
-release dates for both versions
-A surprise announcement that will catch us all off guard (it IS Sakurai after all)

Mario looks off.....he appears strangely lanky and looks like he's a plastic doll. I appreciate his craftsmanship but Mario games should be bright, colorful and appealing. This looks like Mario is about to run straight into a call of duty game with how darkly tinted his color palette is.

Sounds like good news to me! Seems like they're really taking there time to assure the Wii U port is a good value for Wii U owners by not sweeping the Gamepad under the rug like most Third Party Publishers would. I'll definitely pick up the game when it releases. I just hope it sells well....

@Rafie Oh I did! I didn't stop playing the whole weekend. Its one of the best 2D Platformers I've ever played. Retro Studios really outdid themselves with this latest installment. I'm currently at the final boss and trying my hardest to beat him. It's just a ton of fun!

@Tsuzura Oh thank God FINALLY someone who agrees with me. Thank you so much TvT

@Rafie I believe the old quote is: "What we have here is a failure to communicate." My apologies for the misunderstanding. Carry on. Now may we please stop arguing?

@GunstarHero234 You sound so....angry with your posts. Are you ok? Do you need to talk about something? Because you're taking this a little too far. Look man, if you like Sega and Sony that's fine. If you dont think the Wii U is a good system then fine. But don't turn this into an insult hurling fight. We're gamers, we're better than this. As for Nintendos situation the Wii U will be fine and I'll just go on my merry way supporting the console and buying its games.Enjoy the PS4, I'm sure many great games will come out for it. Now let's just end this argument before it gets worse. Have a nice day.

@GunstarHero234 This might be news to you but your disagreement is also opinion. You're not the end all be all. You just have a different taste and that's fine. No need to be insulting and obnoxious about it. Also chiming in and ganging up against me isn't going to change my stance. I am a gamer who enjoys Nintendo games because they're fun and the hardware is innovative and different than the competition whose offerings hold nothing of interest to me because they just focus on graphics and nothing else. End of story.

@Rafie I'm not saying the Wii U isn't in a bad situation, I'm saying it's not dead. You're acting as if the Wii U is going to die tomorrow. Like it's on its last legs and on life support. You're making it a bigger thing than it is and over exaggerating the situation here. It's not selling well but it's far from over. Games are still being developed for it and people are still buying it. The Wii U is fine and will only improve from here.

Guitardude7 commented on Latest PS4 Sales Figures Take it Past Wii U Li...:

@GunstarHero234 Simple. Because they're the only ones who are attempting to innovate and experiment by making a completely different and unique console. They constantly try to give new experiences through their hardware and make great games to boot. The PS4 nor the Xbox One have done neither of those things.

I agree with you on the notion that Nintendo's marketing has put them in their current position. They haven't done a good job at all marketing the system or its games.

Again though, I do not wish to argue any further. Just agree to disagree.

Guitardude7 commented on Latest PS4 Sales Figures Take it Past Wii U Li...:

@Rafie I already told you why the PS4 is selling better, and its because of its superior marketing. And I think you're over exaggerating saying the Wii U is in jeopardy. It's not on a deathbed or anything.

But Let us stop arguing though and just agree to disagree. We're not going to convince each other that our standpoint is right so let's just drop it eh?

Guitardude7 commented on Latest PS4 Sales Figures Take it Past Wii U Li...:

@Rafie You're underplaying the Gamepad a bit there. Maybe you don't own a Wii U but the Gamepad makes a huge difference and is far different from the Wii. The PS4 offers nothing new other than a fresh coat of paint and has no noteworthy titles for the system. Heck, it still uses the dualshock, a controller that's been used since the first Playstation only with slight modifications. It doesn't deserve to success it has and is only successful because of Sonys superior marketing campaign.

Guitardude7 commented on Latest PS4 Sales Figures Take it Past Wii U Li...:

@Rafie Are you picking a fight with me by quoting me? The PS4 IS just a souped up PS3 because the only area that's different is the graphics. The Wii U is NOT a souped up Wii because it offers something completely new and different, the Game pad. It tries to be innovative whereas the PS4 just tries to look prettier.

@Sidewinder If that's what the PS4 is supposed to be then shame on Sony. If they continue this trend of just beefing up the graphics for every succeeding console then they're throwing away what makes gaming special: hardware innovation. It's the only thing that distances consoles from PCs and Nintendo is the only one who's at least trying to do this. The Wii U isn't as innovative as the Wii was, sure but to discredit any innovation it brings such as off tv play, and asymmetric gameplay is just plain foolish.

I'm going to miss having a huge story mode....I LOVED SSE it was one of the best parts of Brawl. Eh oh well, the game will be just fine without it. I just hope they come up with a suitable replacement for single player that offers more than Melees Adventure Mode.

THANK GOD for the 100 ring extra live inclusion. This game was a broken mess without it. I got a game over every 5 seconds due to the broken controls. Maybe now I can actually get somewhere without having to start the whole level over.....

Guitardude7 commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

This is what I've been arguing since Day 1. This gens leap isn't all that impressive. it looks great, but it's a small leap compared to the last leap. The visuals are unimpressive and the games are even less impressive. They play exactly how they did last gen or even the gen before with no variation.

The Wii U however is the most radical jump this gen perhaps not graphically competition wise but graphically for a Nintendo system. And with the Gamepad, it has the most innovative way to play and due to being out a year has the strongest lineup of games at the moment.

Ok this game HAS to be the one. The one that FINALLY starts selling Wii U's at a healthy rate and kicking off the golden era of the console. it just HAS to be. This game is the most critically praised Wii U game ever so far and a lot of people are excited for it. If this game can't do it then nothing will.

Hey if this is true, I wouldn't mind it. I mean it won't be part of the actual line of Nintendo consoles right? It'll be something different, an expansion of Nintendos market. If it's a Nintendo OWNED tablet then its sure to be good right? it wouldn't interfere with the actual consoles and it'd be a nice option for parents. I don't see how this is a bad idea.

Now if only we can get Wii U's commercials to be this good.....The new "Why Wii U" commercial was an improvement because it was the first commercial that actually differentiated the Wii from the Wii U. Hopefully they keep doing just that.

Guitardude7 commented on Happy Birthday, Wii U - You're One Today:

It's going to be a fantastic year for Wii U, I know it. It's fortunes will turn around and I have a feeling it will even win the 8th gen console war. But even if it doesn't it's still an outstanding system with a personality that can't be met by other consoles. It's definitely the most unique and original console of the big 3. No matter what happens, the Wii U will succeed and it will always be a fantastic console! So Here's to the future!

Guitardude7 commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

I honestly think Wii U will win. It will be a close race with the PS4 but honestly, I think families and gamers alike will see the value of Wii U and that it plays differently from anything else on the market. The Wii U will have the most unique, creative and innovative games for sure. The PS4 will be tough competition though due to its immense audience. The Xbox One on the other hand will probably come far behind in dead last. No original IPs, weaker technology under the hood, a mandatory accessory nobody wants all for $500 bucks. Who is going to buy that? Hardcore Xbox fans.....and noone else. This race will be between Wii U and PS4. Though no console is going to see the sales numbers they've seen in the past.....the economy just isn't that great in this day in age. It's going to be a tough 8th gen for everyone.

@Wolfgabe You can't friend people and you can't PM them. Sure, you can comment on posts but you can't follow them to see more. We're isolated from becoming friends. It's like being in a room full of people but each of us are in a glass case. I considered the best part of Miiverse to be the Friend and PM system because it truly connects us all together. Without these two features, it's just not as connected as it should be.
