Guitardude7 commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Be Promoting Th...:

It would be false advertisement technically because the Wii U GamePad does NOT act like a traditional tablet. It has a resistive touch screen and it doesnt display images in HD. Also there are no real tablet like uses for it outside of menu navigation and some touch mechanics in games and it lacks apps that traditional tablets have. I think marketing the GamePad as a tablet would only cause more confusion to the consumer on what the Wii U really is, a game console. The GamePad should showcase game mechanics and unique features and not be sold as something it's not.

Also, Nintendo tried to market to the casual niche audience that normally takes part in Tablet gaming for the first two years of its life and look how that turned out. Just Saying.

Guitardude7 commented on Nintendo Revenue Claims on Mario Kart 8 YouTub...:

@BLPs I wasn't saying I was going to get revenue overnight, I was saying if I'm in this position, I will take the affiliate program. I'm not doing this for money anyway, I even said that I'll be doing Nintendo games regardless of copyright claims. But even so, I will make it and I will make a successful show out of this because I love doing it and I love entertaining people. Of course I don't expect it right away or even in 5 years, but I will gain my audience. Just you watch.

I'm starting a Let's Play channel with a friend of mine this fall, so I'm very interested in this affiliate program. I just hope it's fair. If not, then they can just take my money. I just love entertaining people. I'll look to Non-Nintendo games for revenue.

@Peach64 I'm not hating, but why is that every time Nintendo comes out with even a sliver of good news, you're always there to give a reason why it means nothing? I understand we should be realistic, but come on have SOME positivity will ya? I know it's not all flowers and confetti over here in Nintendo Land (pun intended) but there's gotta be SOMETHING positive when looking at these results. Have a little optimism. It makes for a much happier experience.

DAMMIT NINTENDO. I WAS HOPING YOU WOULDN'T DO THIS. Now I HAVE to buy the game and every figurine in the set ESPECIALLY if it's a Nintendo universe game involving different characters and not just the Mario universe. Ugh. Goodbye wallet....

@Gingadreadman And? Who cares if they're "family oriented"? They're still a lot of fun and have a lot more creativity and soul then most games I see on PS4 or Xbox One. Seeing as how many adults including myself love those "family oriented games" such as 3D World, DKC Tropical Freeze, Nintendo Land and Pikmin 3, Nintendos kid friendly image has NOTHING to do with their console sales. A game doesn't need to be dark and depressing to be good or fit for an adult audience.

Gameboy is overrated. I never want to own another single screen console again. The convenience of dual screens is unrivaled when it comes to games. it would be a GIGANTIC step back for Nintendo to revert to single screens again.

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?

@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.
