HawkeyeWii commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

I will definitely get this but it is really hard not to see it as just a level creation tool even. I get you can play other people's levels and there are levels that come with it but the biggest draw comes from making the levels.

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

IGN just gave this an awful review. Nintendo life should just stop beating around the bush and give it a score. The thing I hate most is that people are hating on Nintendo for this. Sure they published it but they didn't develop it. There is a gigantic difference between the two.

Seems like a pretty natural fit to me. Although I hope he won't be the only character taken from this ballot if in fact this is true.
I'd really really like to see a Space Pirate from Metroid, Simon Belmont, or even Rayman before a lot of the others I have heard people have been voting for.

HawkeyeWii commented on A Resident Evil 2 Remake Has Been Confirmed:

I thought it might have been April fools day when I first saw this article! It's about time! I'm pretty confident the NX will get it. But I am 100% sure this is not coming to Wii U. Are you serious? "Hoping beyond hope". That's right!

HawkeyeWii commented on Review: Legend of Kay Anniversary (Wii U):

Font of the title aside, I really miss these classic "cartoony" adventure platformers from the PS2 and GCN era. These games used to be churned out all the time and now we don't get any of them anymore. Everyone wants the dark, gritty, and hyper realistic games that don't have any imagination or artistic desire to them. I miss Crash Bandicoot, Sly Cooper, Spyro, Ty the Tasmanian Tiger, Jak and Daxter, Klonoa, or even Scooby Doo games. I could go on and on. The only surviving game series that is still getting made in the vein of these games that I can think of is Ratchet and Clank.

HawkeyeWii commented on Review: Star Fox Command (Wii U eShop / DS):

I remember seeing this at gamestop years ago and I had never played a Star Fox game before. So of course I picked it up. Easily one of the most disappointing games I have ever played. I'm glad that this game didn't ruin the series for me, because I eventually ended up getting Star Fox 64 3D later and enjoyed it. If only we could get a realistic and more gritty looking Star Fox game some day. What Metroid Prime did for the Metroid series is exactly what Star Fox needs. a complete re-imagining.

HawkeyeWii commented on Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Ag...:

I first saw this and scrolled past and had to double take.... It sounds cliché but yeah "it all seemed very sudden." I know that others including me as of late have kind of been giving Nintendo crap for their "subpar" E3, but there is no doubt this man lead Nintendo in such a great way! I will be miss seeing his face on Nintendo Directs and at E3. This came at a terrible time for Nintendo, when they are preparing a new home console. It is sad he will never get to see how successful, yes, successful the "NX" will be. I have faith Nintendo. I am sorry I doubted you. #DoitforIwata

It better be close to the power of the PS4 or goodbye third party support for the 3rd, arguably 4th system straight. Nintendo cannot afford to be a let down this time or it is also goodbye Nintendo as a home console making company.

@khululy That is not true. And you do know you can play online games with people muted? Practically every game that has online multiplayer had that option. A lot of games are an absolute blast to play online. Mario Kart games especially! This is also your opinion and mine. There are obviously a lot of people who love playing online today, so not giving people a solid option like this for a console today is mindless.

HawkeyeWii commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

@arrmixer What I am most concerned about is the graphical power of the NX, which is another I have seen Nintendo execs put down before. This is nothing to joke around about. If the NX isn't at least as powerful as the PS4, then this might very well be the last Nintendo home console we will ever see.

HawkeyeWii commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

@VeeFlamesNL I'm not saying people like them anymore. I'm saying that motion controls saved and sold the Wii. End of story. Without that, it would have failed. So if VR sells like hotcakes and Nintendo has nothing to show for it but putting it down then the NX could be in trouble.

HawkeyeWii commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

@Everly Perfect example how the "Top Men" at Nintendo are so ignorant of the "times". I have heard Reggie and Miyamoto several times say how online games really aren't that fun and "we could implement if we wanted to, but we don't see the use". It is thinking like that, that solidifies the fact that we need new men in charge at Nintendo because they have their mindset caught in the late 80's and 90's.

I definitely could see Nintendo continuing Wii U support after NX is announced, but as a family console. If the Nintendo Direct didn't scream "cute and cuddly" or "family friendly" then you weren't watching lol. Nintendo usually is more family friendly than its competition but this was just ridiculous. No edgy titles shown at all. Nothing above T rating, maybe not even E. Fire Emblem is all I can think of....

@nathatruc Amen. Although I read in another article that they are actually creating the new engine for the NX. I feel like Retro Studios is the "I" in team at Nintendo. They are more in touch with the times than Nintendo itself is. They also didn't want to show Retro's project because it is an NX launch window game. I'm calling it now. I mean it makes no sense to release a AAA Retro Studios title on the sinking ship that is the Wii U.

HawkeyeWii commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda...:

I can't wait to see him go back on these statements next year and confirm that Zelda is coming to the NX. They just want the fans calmed down. Basically like a parent letting a child know in the kindest way possible that their pet dog is dying.

@6ch6ris6 I know, right? What a liar! He sounds like a politician. Dodge this question, dodge that one. They need to hire new blood and fast. Nintendo is in trouble if this NX isn't up to snuff with the PS4 and Xbox One. Say goodbye to 3rd part support for the 3rd system straight.

HawkeyeWii commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

@rjejr I'm still scratching my head on why they wouldn't show something from Devil's third..... The one edgy title coming to Wii U that could diversify it and they give it the cold shoulder.
I could definitely see Devil's Third being one if those games that announces it will also come to Xbox One and PS4. I mean, you would have to be absolutely nuts to make this game only on Wii U.

@Sinister I agree. As much as I think that some of them like Miyamoto are geniuses, I think it is time to wipe the slate clean with this new system a d get fresh faces in there. It could only help the company at this point. We aren't making games for the NES or SNES anymore. This is the 21st century lol

Litterally woke up this morning and thought everything announced... (or not announced) was a nightmare. And then I read this article and it hit me. I figured the game would at least be decently playable by today's standards, but no. What has Nintendo become? Not even putting a good effort into one of your mascot's games like Star Fox.

@rjejr "Purposely sabotaging the Wii U".
Exactly my friend.... exactly.
What is the biggest slap to the face, isn't to us the fans but to the developers that worked long and hard on Devils Third and Nintendo won't even a knowledge them! Finally some 3rd party support and they basically flip them off. What is Nintendo's strategy? They are setting themselves up for absolute failure on all fronts. It makes me sooo sad as a long time and loyal fan.
If you will excuse me I'm going to go play Metroid Prime Trilogy until the next "real Metroid" game sees the light of day.

HawkeyeWii commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

I voted for everything but the next "Big Zelda" game.
It is a "must have" for sure!!!! But it is a must have for the NX. If there would have been that option then I would have voted for it.
The fact that I invested so much in the Wii U and got it from launch no less and Nintendo is already planning on moving onto the next console pisses me off. Well it is there only option because they got their selves in a rut for sales. Well maybe you shouldn't have called it Wii "U" and made it as powerful as other consoles now. Duh

HawkeyeWii commented on Star Fox Zero Started Life Way Back On The Ori...:

@6ch6ris6 Yep it took not even a second into the gameplay reveal yesterday and the grin of joy on my face was wiped off. Why they didn't start fresh and put more effort into the visuals to bring them up to Mario Kart 8 quality is beyond me.
This E3's strategy for Nintendo reads: Abandon Wii U quietly and reveal whatever else we have planned for it. Oh and more of those plastic figures instead of games.......

Sorry people. If you think Nintendo still had "Big" surprises left for the Wii U, you are sorrowfully mistaken. You just saw them.....

HawkeyeWii commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

Wow! What did I say yesterday? As if this doesn't solidify it. Nintendo is abandoning the Wii U. If you didn't pick that up from the E3 Nintendo Direct then you are blind. Xenoblade X and Star Fox will be the swan songs for the system. Zelda will be like the Twilight Princess story. I can almost guarantee you that. The Wii U was the biggest disappointment since the Virtual Boy. What makes matters worse is the fact that Wii U is still relatively new. God only knows how Nintendo expects to sell this new "NX" when people just got the Wii U.
What an absolute mess!

HawkeyeWii commented on Metroid Prime: Federation Force Producer Expla...:

I still feel like this would have been received so much better if they would have at least announced during the Direct that this fills a gap while "Metroid Prime 4" is in the works. Not every Nintendo character needs to be cute and cuddly. Samus is that one character that definitely shouldn't be.

HawkeyeWii commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

Probably one of the biggest Metroid fans on the site. I gave it a day to settle. The game looks okay but why in God's name did they tag "Metroid Prime" on that? Just why? We want either a full on no gimmicks 2.5D Metroid or a new game in the vein of the Metroid Prime series. Not Samus's Friends go to Soccer School.

It is actually kind of funny to go back and read this article now. It's almost like wishing and letting your parents and grandparents know as a kid that you wanted that one special present if you got any at all and instead had that old grandparent give you the same thing that you already had last year and have to fake being excited.

HawkeyeWii commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

It is weird to think that the Wii U is basically on its final stretch of its life span and nothing to show for it.......
What a disappointment. Sure Zelda was confirmed for Wii U but I definitely see that getting the Twilight Princess treatment and being released on both the new and old systems. And even still that is one great game left announced. Star Fox was underwhelming as hell and let's hope to god that Retro isn't working on another DK game. This is coming from a guy who adored the DKC games from them as well. Metroid was much better fitted for a trilogy. We don't need another DKC trilogy. We need Metroid or F-Zero. And Metroid isn't going to happen with that mediocre blast ball they showed. What a middle finger to Metroid fans. That would have been good and all if it was released alongside a new full fledged Metroid game, but it wasn't......

HawkeyeWii commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

Retro Studios new game could have saved the entire Direct. It is very sad to say it but it has been staring, (at least me) in the face for a while now.... 3rd party support for Nintendo systems is all but extinct. I see Nintendo ending up like Sega within the next 6-10 years. By that I mean that they will become a software developer only. It really pains me to say that but look around everyone it is true!

@Guybrush20X6 Lol... who doesn't know those things about those movies? Unless you have lived in a cave your whole life or just came out of the womb, I don't see how you wouldn't know those.
I do have to agree with your above statement though. I first saw it in IGN and was kinda PO'd and came here hoping that NL would at least make it more vague.

HawkeyeWii commented on Street Fighter Legend Ryu And Fire Emblem's Ro...:

I am really hoping that, that wasn't going to be the BIG reveal during their Direct. The inclusion of both of them doesn't surprise me. Good choices. Glad to be able to not only use a great Melee character again and another video game icon. I still really want another Metroid Character though. Give Samus some love please.
