HawkeyeWii commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

I completely agree with him. We can only hope that this "NX" is the real deal and saves Nintendo. Please god make this console powerful. It would make no sense for Nintendo to come out with another home console that is still significantly underpowered in relation to the competition.



HawkeyeWii commented on Amazon Lists Pokémon Red, Yellow And Blue At ...:

I could see Yellow maybe reasonably going for that price, just due to it being in full color and being the deluxe version of the three.
If I were to realistically price it though. I'd make red and blue $4.99 and Yellow $6.99. But 10 bucks is a little crazy. I was really excited when this was announced but now I'm really not.



HawkeyeWii commented on Video: Check Out a Graphical Comparison for Th...:

Looks fantastic! I can't wait to replay one of my favorite games in a brand new way! I remember there being debates on which game deserved the HD treatment more, this or Skyward Sword. Not to be biased, but I really think the HD lends itself better to the most realistic graphics the Zelda series has ever seen.



HawkeyeWii commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

I've been using the site since 2009. It took me a couple years to make an account though haha. I have checked the site at least once a day since. You guys have done a great job! Keep up the fantastic work on the best Nintendo news site around!



HawkeyeWii commented on Review: Hogan's Alley (Wii U eShop / NES):

With all the pointless accessories that came out for the NES, you would have figured they would have released a magnum zapper where you would have to reload by pulling back the hammer, all cowboy style before each shot.



HawkeyeWii commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

@Yorumi Yeah I understand that. There are a lot of games that have stupid and impractical costumes as well. But if I were to choose an impractical costume that looks out of place for a videogame character, I would have fun with it instead of just resorting to taking the clothes away. Why not a big panda suit, or a Mario hat and overalls? I love when games do that kind of stuff because it is funny and matches the Nintendo theme. I guess it isn't some much the impracticability that is an issue but the fact that they are resorting to sexualizing the characters.



HawkeyeWii commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

Another recent example are the alternate costumes for that Black Maiden game. I don't even care that we didn't get those costumes here in America. Man next time I'm in a haunted house being chased by ghosts with my best friend, I'm to strip down to nothing but underwear. Nah maybe I'll wear a Speedo in instead. It would be so practical!



HawkeyeWii commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

@Yorumi That is true, but look what all the males in the game are wearing. What is the point in making her look like that and I assume a lot of the other female characters look similar to this as well.
I think the Japanese need to keep it in their pants some times. Design a female character for once that has her skin reasonably covered and can act like a normal human being. Not just something for the male nerds hunched over their controllers late at night to drool over.



HawkeyeWii commented on Nintendo Is Making Female Characters Cover Up ...:

I live in an America and fro the most part I think the censoring of things over here compared to other parts of the world can be a little absurd at times, but I definitely agree with this. The character models for that character are just down right stupid and impractical. I fail to see the importance of dressing a character like that in a game such as Xenoblade Chronicles X.
In a game like Bayonetta, it makes more sense because it is sort of part of the game's shtick, but it makes no sense for Xenoblade.



HawkeyeWii commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

"Industry leading tech"..... we can only hope.
I don't know how I feel about the whole mobile/home console. It just sounds like a gimmick. How about nintendo just makes a straight forward up to date tech with other systems. No gamepad, no take it on the go, that is what the handheld are for. Just a good old fashion game console. Nintendo hasn't had one of those since the Gamecube....



HawkeyeWii commented on Super Smash Bros. 'Digital Complete Pack' Comb...:

I'll admit it. One thing that Nintendo does terribly in comparison to its competitors is the pricing of "game deals" or older games. You go to your local target or walmart and find the Nintendo section. Even go as far as looking for an older Wii game. Bet you there is a Nintendo published or developed game for over $50 still.

(Edit) And then proceed to the PS3 aisle and see the loads of $20 or below games.



HawkeyeWii commented on Metroid Prime: Hunters Arrives on Wii U Virtua...:

I am a huge fan of the Metroid Prime series and I never got a chance to play this. I have tried many times to find it on Amazon or Gamestop cheap, but I never could. Plus gamestop ripped me off once and sold me a Metroid Prime: Hunters (First Hunt) for like $10. For those of you who don't know First Hunt was the demo that came with many orIginla DS systems.



HawkeyeWii commented on The Retro VGS Wants To Revive The Glory Days O...:

What a great idea! I have actually been wanting gaming to go back to cartridges. Only problem is that they aren't really economical anymore. But man would in love to have a console where you can pop in a cartridge, just like the good ol days.



HawkeyeWii commented on Pikmin 4 is "Very Close to Completion", Though...:

You rarely ever see this at all in the media for movies, games, etc. I'm surprised they could keep that underwraps for so long before some website could leak it, but revealing that when it is "near completion" is pretty astounding in today's world.



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.



HawkeyeWii commented on Rumour: Fresh Sources Suggest Shovel Knight Is...:

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!
