HeroOfTime32 commented on Video: Digital Foundry Tackles the Native Reso...:

@Yorumi You're missing the point here. In a perfect world, yeah I'm sure Nintendo would take their time and do this project the justice it deserves. Does their massive back catalog of games not imply this already??

But stop to think about the situation they are in. These development decisions need to be made VERY FAR in advance. Nintendo obviously thought the Wii U would be faring better than it is currently, and they probably hoped the 2016 release schedule looked a little more full. The reality is that Nintendo really needed something to fill the '16 release calendar. I'm sure TP was a project they wanted to remaster at some point, but found themselves in a situation dictated by time. In fact, I look at this as a POSITIVE from Nintendo, not a negative. Would you rather the Wii U get pretty much nothing in 2016?? I know I would feel pretty burned by that. The dev teams are stretched super thin right now holding two platforms up by themselves with hardly any 3rd party support. Let's not forget how many teams have been moved or partitioned to NX development.

At the end of the day, let's be happy with the fact we're getting TP released this March. I think the improvements are okay. I 100% agree with you that there could have been more improvements such as FPS and the like. But to say that this wasn't accomplished because they are LAZY??? Ha, it's quite the opposite. There is a lot on the plate right now for one company to be juggling. At the end of the day, they always think about their fans and always aim to please them. It doesn't happen all the time, but I will say that I like to think that Ninty thinks from the gamer's heart regarding business decisions.

HeroOfTime32 commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

@John_Enigma I'm inclined to agree with you here. Look at the wireless/streaming technology they implemented into the Wii U. It's actually quite impressive lag-wise. Nintendo loves finding emerging and developing technologies and finding ways to implement these technologies into their games. Case & point with analogue sticks, motion controls, touch screens, etc.

I'm thinking we will see some updated version of "Remote Play" like you're mentioning, coupled with the free-form screen patents we saw just recently (with the connected LG rumors prior to that).

The biggest part of the equation is having a HEALTHY gaming ECOSYSTEM for gamers tho. Whether that be true cross-buy, or having access to older purchases, or a unified account. I think that's actually one of the biggest things that needs to be done.

Lastly, on the topic of the Club Nintendo rewards program... Take the "achievements" model from PS & Xbox and implement it into actual, physical rewards or digital discounts rather than just trophies. THAT WOULD BE A GAME CHANGER.

HeroOfTime32 commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

Everybody's speculating about a unified platform between handheld and console... And while I feel that may be the road we're headed towards, let's not forget how Nintendo ALWAYS shocks or surprises us with something we never even thought of.

I'm hoping this is the case, that something completely new is introduced that isn't a "gimmick" in the truest sense of the word. A "gimmick" is fine, so long as gameplay and 3rd party support aren't compromised.

The news articles floating around a couple months ago from industry insiders were telling us that Nintendo is doing something completely new and innovative. Naturally, the Internet is going to speculated wildly, that's what Nintendo fans do LOL.

2016 is gonna be EXCITITNG

I loved this game. Glad it's still getting some support. Hopefully this fixes "quitters" who didn't get the level they wanted, since there is now SOME incentive.

On another note, this game is easily a 7/10, although 6 is somewhat fair too. Definitely no worse than that though, this game is tons of fun!

HeroOfTime32 commented on Star Fox Zero Launches on 22nd April, 2016:

The delay of this makes me think this helps their plans to try and squeeze the life out of the Wii U until NX arrives. Zelda U is coming to NX (maybe a dual release like TP) for sure, and delaying Star Fox is basically Nintendo stalling to make time for the NX launch.

HeroOfTime32 commented on Capcom "Will Consider The Possibility" Of Supp...:

@Kaze_Memaryu Agreed. Over the past year or so, these "internet leaks" really, have only hurt Nintendo. In today's age, the internet seems to quick to judge something at face value before they've had a chance to really evaluate it. I think Nintendo is opting for more of an "Apple-esque" approach, and drop last-minute release bombs on the public. It helps reduce product speculation, falsification and the like.

The problem is, the internet seems to know what they want before they've ever had a chance to recieve it, and then are quick to bash something that isn't quite what they were expecting. Also, these leaks only help to overhype products more-so than they actually need.

I really hope they are hard at work behind the scenes more than I'm assuming, and truly suprise me around NX reveal time.

It seems Nintendo has done their part to reach out to third parties regarding NX... now we wait to see what the results are.

@DestinyMan Agreed about the TreeHouse Demos... I never thought developer demos/interviews would ever sway my own personal interests but I definitely invested some time into the Treehouse demos and gotta say.... AWESOME IDEA!! Gives the devs a chance to explain concepts and show the games more so than would of had a chance to prior.

Here's hoping they do more developer events in the future and continue to produce Nintendo Direct videos throughout the year as well

HeroOfTime32 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Successfully Wooed Som...:

Glad that Ninty did its own thing....CORRECTLY this time. I feel as though "being different" is finally paying off for Nintendo as the internet trends are suggesting that gamers are starting to grow tired of the same recycled garbage. Nintendo needs to keep a happy medium between listening to the fans and supporting their own vision and goals. If they only listened to fans, we would never have much for innovation, and If they only supported their own vision, gamers could potentially lose interest.

It will definitely be exciting to follow Nintendo over the next couple months leading into 2015. My only worry is that they won't be able to maintain momentum into all those great '15 releases scheduled ahead of us. IF they can maintain this enthusiasm into 2015, I'm confident that Nintendo will do just fine in the marketplace by appeasing old fans, and converting new ones too!

GamerJunkie, please just stop posting. I'm cringing reading your posts. You have such a narrow minded view when it comes to gaming. You and all "cool" friends go smash your face into your tablets. Ninety will be fine in regards to the Wii U, it just needs time like any new console. It's people like you who confuse the masses into believing that there are even 10 lengthy, great games (good controls a must!) on the entire App Store. Just lots of angry birds dude. So take it somewhere else. Perhaps, Engadget or somewhere? I think you would fit in well there.

HeroOfTime32 commented on Talking Point: Wii U Direct - Tell Us What You...:

Great NIntendo Direct. Really glad they announced what they did in regards to VC. Things could definitely be much worse. My only concern is the speed in which these titles will be released for the Wii U VC. Oh, that and Gamecube games too. I'm dying that there hasn't been a GC announcement yet. Really glad to see a new 3D Mario is in the works. Hope it is a completely new adventure and not another Galaxy game or New Bros. game! Also keep the system updates coming Nintendo!! To keep interest in the console, it should never cease to receive new features!

I honestly hate playing RE or any other zombie game for that matter. Reason being, I panic and freak our during tense moments!!! This is a compliment to Zombie U in the fact that it looks way to "intense" for me.

.....Part of me wants it though....

BRING ON THE WAVE RACE!!!!

But seriously Nintendo, please either release the GB version for VC, or preferably make a new entry in the series for Wii U. I mean, Wave Race with the WiiPad...C'mon!!!

I loved this RPG! The environment and world in which you were in the clouds was awesome, as it appealed to the "final fantasy 'airship' " in me. Voice acting would be nice possibly, but as said earlier, the battle speed could be upped by a small amount.

I loved how it wasn't just land battles, but you also had to have ship battles as well! And this game rewards exploration!

HeroOfTime32 commented on Feature: A Visual Guide to Nintendo's Handheld...:

I agree that I feel that the Virtual Boy was released to serve the purposes as a "home console" as opposed to being a "portable". Maybe it should be in this list, I'm not for certain.

As for the GBA and the GBA SP, you covered both, but what about the MICRO?????????

Even though it had a short life and not much for sales, it was still a pretty cool portable in the fact that it was so small! This article really should be updated to include the Micro though, jus' sayin

Still on my to buy list. After reading (mostly) positive reviews and hearing what the fans of had to say, this is a definite must buy. For those that own it, is the replay value really good or no? Wondering if you feel a desire to replay parts on higher difficulties or not without anything growing too stale.

I'd like to see some real innovation with the 3D classics here Ninty. As a simple remaster, they could sell tons if they picked a proper title. I've been waiting and waiting for some solid substance to hit the EShop. C'mon Nintendo!
