hydeks commented on Feature: Dreaming of a Nintendo Christmas - Da...:

Awesome read! And don't apologize for mentioning Sega, Sega was/is awesome! :-)

I have two favourite memories of christmas as a kid. The first was in 1992 when I woke up and there was a huge box on the coffee table, me and my sister opened it up and it was a brand new Sega Genesis model 2 with Sonic 2 and Ecco, needless to say we didn't leave the tv that day at all lol

My second favourite and most remembered memory was in 1995 when I finally got my very own game console that I didn't have to share. It was a Super Nintendo that came with Super Mario World and Super Mario All-Stars bundled, and I also got Yoshi's Island and Stanley Cup separately with it. I had a huge love for gaming before then, but that was the year I basically started my collection :-)

hydeks commented on Nintendo Highlights Great Games in a Rather Pr...:

Very nice, I like how it's not full of itself like Sony likes to be :-P All and all, Nintendo had a great year, so much in fact that people that I heard that didn't want a Wii U, rushed out and got one! I know I will be getting mine soon, and I can't wait!

Nintendo consoles might not get as many games as Microsoft and Sony, but I've never traded in a Nintendo game like I have a Sony or Microsoft games. Nintendo games I usually find I enjoy more and end up finishing and beating everything in their games, and go back to them time and time again, while Sony and Microsoft games I usually barely get through the story, then I either barely touch it again or I trade it in :-P

hydeks commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

this doesn't surprise me because most companies start working and planning the next system right when that current system was just released (Nintendo basicly had plans for N64 not even 2 years after SNES' release :-P)

Personally, I have no idea what Nintendo will do with it's next system, and to be honest THAT is why Nintendo has become so exciting lately. The other consoles you expect to see just a normal controller and a system with improved graphics, but Nintendo see's that as boring and loves to innovate and bring fresh ways to play video games. I do hope that the next Nintendo system still has Wii Remotes, and I hope that the Wii U gamepad can also be used with it, but otherwise, I don't expect anything other then to be amazed at Nintendo's innovation. While others will be dabbing into VR, I betcha Nintendo will go in a different, more unique direction :-)

Omg future publishing wtf?!? First they get rid of my favourite magazine Nintendo Power, now there getting rid of UK's CVG magazine?!? Man...what a bummer!

I loved reading those mags and got into them when I became friends with someone who moved from the UK to Canada and had a lot of the issues from around the 16-bit/ 32-bit era. Sad to hear yet another great magazine go :-(

hydeks commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. and amiibo Ha...:

I think that Nintendo didn't think amiibo would be such a big hit as it is, so they don't have enough supply for the demand. Hopefully Nintendo rights this soon, because I'm looking forward to getting a Wii U in a month or so and it would be nice to be able to get my favourite amiibo's for smash bros :-)

My opinion of Nintendo is definitely starting to improve as of late with all the great games and innovations they have been doing. I think I went sour on Nintendo for awhile cause nothing was coming out and no third party support, but the games their coming out with are impressing me more then the "next gen" consoles have so far.

@markybbop very true, that is one thing that bugs me about Nintendo, but when Nintendo releases a game, that game is usually definitely worth your money and usually has tons of replay and fun factor and usually tries to get you to play with people in the same room. I have a Xbox One and I do enjoy some of the games on the system, but I always find myself forcing my way through a game people think is "just the greatest" and finding that the game wasn't worth the price. One thing I know that Nintendo does that I wish Sony and Microsoft would do is makes more couch co-op games, I'm sick of playing games with my friends not around.

hydeks commented on Nintendo Reveals New Wii U Footage and Details...:

meh, I doubt we'll see both games next year :-P Star Fox will probably come out in the Fall of 2015 while Zelda will probably be pushed back (like Nintendo LOVES to do) till like Summer 2016 :-P Nintendo takes forever to release games, and usually when they say something is coming out, add a couple of more seasons to that and you probably have the real release date lol

hydeks commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

I have this on Xbox One and enjoy it WAY better then the Wii U version my friend has. Kinda unfortunate the Wii U version sucks, it's actually a pretty fun game on the X1/PS4 version.

hydeks commented on Sonic Boom Wii U And 3DS Both Stall Outside Of...:

the 3ds game sucks, the Wii U game is horrific, and the cartoon is just ok, so overall I would like Sega to can Sonic Boom as quick as possible in favour of making a decent game :-P Sonic Generations style gameplay on X1/ PS4, come on Sega, do it already!!! ><

hydeks commented on Thousands In Australia & New Zealand Attend Mi...:

.....why did Australia and New Zealand get the New 3DS before the west did?!? Nintendo thought releasing it there before Xmas over there was smart but they're holding off on the western release till after Xmas?!? The New 3DS could have been the hottest buy for Xmas over here and would have made TONS of sales!!!!! God Nintendo, every move you make lately just seems....stupid :-P

looks at Nintendo are you stupid Nintendo?!? I mean seriously, you think Steam and Amazon are your competitions?!? Wow....just...wow...

You see Nintendo, your WRONG in every way, Sony and Microsoft are your competition, rather you like it or not, and so far, they're kicking your butt so much in the console department it's not even funny -_- The way you guys are going, I would actually say android, apple, and LeapFrog is more your competition ¬¬

hydeks commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

wow, Sony really thinks there all that, don't they? :-P Well it's been awhile since they said something pompous, so sure why not? Give me a break on the Vita being better then 3DS and that though, the PSP was crap and even that system was WAY better then the Vita has been :-P

hydeks commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

The Wii U is a nice system, the huge problems are that there is no third part support, and the fact Nintendo seems to like being a generation behind when it comes to the system hardware :-P I would rate the system a "C-" just because of the lack of games, but the gamepad, exclusives, and miiverse get a definitely "A+" in my books :-)

hydeks commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

I really love Nintendo and Reggie, but this is the first time I disagree with him. For $299 you do get a Wii U with 2 games, but the system is lacking A LOT of features the next gen consoles have, including simple thing like video playback from dvd and blu-ray, and their third party support is absolutely pathetic! The only good reason to buy a Wii U is if you only want Nintendo games, and I personally want a little more then that.

If you where going to go by price and deal, you would most likely go Xbox One, especially since it's only $399 with 1 or 2 games depending on the bundle. Also, people would be smarter to buy a X1 or PS4 because they get the third party games and know there will be a great selection of games to play, while Nintendo home consoles are becoming well known to only have Nintendo made games which are super kiddie platforming games, which is just not much in the way of variety.

With how long it takes Nintendo to bring games out, to most people, Nintendo home consoles aren't usually worth it till almost the end of there life span.

hydeks commented on Video: Nintendo's Wii U Holiday Commercial Kee...:

umm, funny commercial, but why you showing off Mario Kart 8 when the bundle your showing has Super Mario 3D World? Shouldn't you have shown off Super Mario 3D World maybe a little? Just a slight nic-picking from me, that's all ^-^

Seems like a very interesting book, if it goes back on sale, I would gladly pick up a copy ^-^ Konami, instead of just telling him to stop seling the book, work with Kalata and settle some kinda agreement so hardcore Castlevania fans can pick this book up!

hydeks commented on Video: The Top 10 Mario Platformers, As Select...:

awesome video, but #1 should have been Super Mario Bros 3 or Super Mario 64, not Super Mario World, though it is a great game, definitely isn't the overall best Mario game. Seriously, Super Mario Bros 3 coming in at #7?!?!? You gotta be joking...

hydeks commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

@kamifox1 lol trust me I'm a huge Sonic fan, I know. I did enjoy Lost World, so to see them go from something I like back to this kinda crap just saddens me. After Sonic 06, Lost World is the only console game I liked (EDIT: I forgot Sonic Generations, Colors, and the two racing games, those are fantastic too), as for the portable games, they all seem pretty great! I can't try the 3DS demo cause I don't have a 3DS, but I have seen videos and it does look awesome....so why is the Wii U game soooo crappy looking?!? They need to take the Sonic Generations and Colors formula and make a game from that, cause they did it great in those games, so this Sonic Boom feels like a huge step back again.

hydeks commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

takes Sonic away from Sega and gives him to Nintendo I swear, this is the only way we are gonna get a good Sonic game now...

What a bland, boring looking game, and the character model for Knuckles is just horrible!!! ><

hydeks commented on Gallery: Duck Hunt's Super Smash Bros. Screens...:

you know, SSB on wii u and 3ds went from a game I wasn't excited about at all cause it barely looked different from the other SSB, but now I'm really REALLY wanting a Wii U again to play this!!! (amongst other games, of course...and yes I sold my Wii U I had before, that was a big mistake -_-)

hydeks commented on Nintendo Black Friday Deals Reveal New 3DS and...:

Actually, Black Friday started in USA, Canada didn't really get into Black Friday until a couple years ago, our "Black Friday" shopping day is Boxing Day (the day after Christmas) :-P We don't technically celebrate Black Friday because our Thanksgiving is in October instead.

Anyways, that Crystal Blue 2DS looks pretty slick, I might go get that and Smash Bros. I never used the 3D on the 3DS and I don't feel like paying the outrageous price of $200 for a 3DS XL still, so this could be a nice cheaper way of getting into 3DS gaming :-)

hydeks commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Online Braw...:

if i went out and bought this I would probably end up getting the ban glitch, getting really pissed off, and basically demanding a refund for the game....glad I decided to wait for the most the bugs to be updated before getting this.

yay I seen this before....just further proof that Nintendo seems to hate the west :-P We only got the GB Pocket when they got the Pocket AND Pocket with the backlight, and we would have to wait till GB Advance SP before we can see our screens :-P

hydeks commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Microsoft raised the bar, now it's time for BOTH Nintendo and Sony to follow suite. Wii U should be $275 with two games (Mario 3d world and nintendo land), the 3DS XL should be lowered to $150 with a game included, Microsoft is awesome and should keep doing what there doing, and Sony REALLY needs to lower the PS4 the most ($450 to $350 with a game).

I think Nintendo will do well this holiday season cause they have a lot of must own games exclusive to their system. The Wii U should have a very modest price cut, but the 3DS XL is the one system I think Nintendo REALLY needs to lower the price on. As for Sony vs. Microsoft, Microsoft has just made a move that makes Sony look stupid, and with all the awesome exclusives coming to Xbox One and barely anything coming to PS4 by Xmas time, Sony needs to quickly drop the price of the ps4 just to keep peoples interest.

@Luigi789 I think both Nintendo and Microsoft will, they are both bringing great games and both consoles are now really decent prices, as for Sony though, they REALLY need to drop the price $100 on the PS4.

hydeks commented on Video: Your Heart Will Melt At This Sega Genes...:

@noctowl the Sega Genesis actually outsold the Super Nintendo at the beginning (from like 1991-1994) then the Sega Genesis started to die down due to Sega releasing stupid crap to prolong the Genesis' life (Sega CD, 32X, Sega Genesis Nomad) and the unexpected and expensive Sega Saturn launch didn't help Sega any. But Super Nintendo started selling more then the Genesis around 1994/95 when Nintendo was showing games like DKC and Mario RPG on just the SNES system hardware alone. The Genesis sold around 40 million, SNES 49 million, so Nintendo definitely won overall, and got tons of sales, especially near the end.

Me personally, I love classic Nintendo and I had a NES, but when I got my Genesis I was instantly hooked! I think the game that really made me love the Sega was Streets of Rage. The Sega Genesis will always be a system that I will remember very fondly, but honestly, the SNES definitely got way better games later on when the Genesis was showing it's age badly.

this right here, Bayonetta 2, this is the kinda games Nintendo needs to get to their console! Played a demo of the game at a friends house and absolutely love this game! Might be the game that forces me to get a Wii U :-)

hydeks commented on We'd Be Cheating Fans By Bringing Assassin's C...:

not hard to figure out why Rogue isn't coming, it's because these kind of games don't make a big enough sale on Nintendo consoles to make the cost of bringing the game to the console worth it :-P

And read the comments from Nintendo fans, they'll say things like "I wouldn't buy it anyways.." so why should they bother to bring the game to the console anyways with the reactions they get from the Nintendo fans?

hydeks commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Fal...:

I pick Captain Toad and Bayonetta 2 as a secondary. Why Captain Toad, because it's the only thing original coming from Nintendo, and I pick Bayonetta 2 because I loved the first one, and it's also Nintendo FINALLY trying to give us an adult game :-P As for Smash Bros, I'm completely unimpressed by the new Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii U (they have so little creativity on this game they didn't even bother giving the games a proper name!!!!) Quite honestly, just pop in Super Smash Bros Melee and Brawl and I think your basicly playing what your getting on the Wii U (minus a couple characters, big boo hoo....)

Watch Dogs isn't coming to the Wii U till November 18th!?!? Wow.....just...wow....

hydeks commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

Wow, so they made Nintendo fans wait a lot longer for a Wii U version of the game, that will look like the last gen Xbox 360/PS3 version, and your not even gonna give them the dlc or anything extra?!?! This is why Nintendo's home consoles have almost zero third party support, and this is why people want a X1/ PS4, cause Wii U's third party is PATHETIC. Nintendo, you need to get off your high horse and fix this NOW! (and to the people complaining and fighting, it's actually Nintendo's fault, they need to fix third party relations big time, it's not the third party or Nintendo gamers fault :-P)

hydeks commented on Nintendo Direct: New Nintendo 3DS Models Comin...:

for what you get with the new 3ds, it's definitely not worth the price at all. As for Australia and New Zealand getting the new 3ds before the west, that's the stupidest thing I have ever heard. Do you even care about your western fans anymore Nintendo, cause it sure feels like you don't anymore...
