I don't wanna seem picky here, but I think I could have lived without some of those new additions at the cost of having the Koopalings included and a world map creator. I haven't seen either so I'm not ruling them out, but it seems like we would have seen something about them by now if they were included. I don't wanna just pick a level I made and play it. I want to create a game with a story, maybe custcenes, different bosses, and a SMW/NSMB style world map.

@kingofthesofa I think what people mean is Nintendo needs to get third parties back on board for the future. When the Wii U launched, it had a fair amount of third party support. But those games were all also made for, or ported from, those on rival systems at the time (ps3 and 360). Anyone who knows anything about gaming knew that within a years time, the successors to the ps3 and 360 would be out, be more powerful, and produce higher quality games than could be produced on the Wii U. And sure, the Wii U could have gotten dumbed-down ports of those games just like the ps3 and 360 still got, but once publishers saw that the system wasn't selling, they weren't gonna put money into something that they wouldn't get anything out of.

I think, more importantly than this being true or not, is the fact that it needs to be true for Nintendo to gain momentum in the console race again. NX needs to be competitive with the ps4 and XboxOne, and it needs to be out within the next year. Keep the Wii U ball rolling for the first two years of the NX's life to appease us fans who have loved the system and not had much time with it, and those who recently bought one as well. Also, NX needs to be backwards compatible with Wii U games and the gamepad itself, if the NX doesn't have a gamepad-like controller already.

The way I see it, the ps4 and XboxOne are only a couple years old, and will be around for quite a while longer (say 5-6 years as an estimate). If the NX rolls out around holiday 2016, it will have 3-4 years at least of being able to compete, win back third parties, and get some solid first party games out within those years as well.

This is the best scenario for Nintendo at this point with their next generation. If they wait till 2017 to launch the NX, or dare I say later than that, then they will risk not getting much support for very long until other rival systems begin to transition to newer models, at which point Nintendo fans are left sitting in the same boat they are in now.

@Project_Dolphin I actually included a bit about that in a longer post that got erased. But yeah, they were still porting down to the 360 and PS3 by the time the One and 4 were out.. But by that time, those developers had seen that the Wii U wasn't selling enough to warrant porting games to it.

Look at the early days of the U, before system sales were taken into account. The U got games like Mass Effect 3, Need for Speed, Resident Evil Revelations, Call of Duty, all of which were third party and of equal or slightly better quality to the ports on rival systems. Even in the first six months to a year of the One and 4, games which came out for both the new and last gen were obviously made for the last gen systems and ported up to the new gen as there were minimal improvements between the two. Now, we clearly have games made for the new systems which have to be downgraded and usually released later on (Mortal Kombat X, for example) on the last gen systems.

@Project_Dolphin They certainly could. But would anyone buy it? Would porting a game made for the power of such systems as the Ps4 and Xbone really be worth doing the work to get it on the system, knowing it would be considered a shoddy port and not sell very well based on the sales of the system? And the answer is a resounding "No".

The Wii U is behind in terms of power and the longer it stays on the market without a successor, the more developers will continue to get the most out of the newer systems, and the less likely those games have a chance of coming to the Wii U, regardless of if the system suddenly sells a million more units.

I love my Wii U, and I have yet to buy a Ps4 or Xbone. But I bought my Wii U at launch knowing that it would lack much third party support following the first year or two. I bought it for Nintendo games, like anyone who has bought one should have done.



HylianSane commented on Feature: The Best Pro Wrestling Games That the...:

War Zone was awesome when it was new, but when THQ took over and came out with Wrestlemania 2000 and later No Mercy, it set the bar so high that those older ones are now complete garbage in comparison.

WWF No Mercy is still, to this day, my favorite wrestling game of all time and arguably the best ever period. I've yet to hear a good argument against it though.



HylianSane commented on TEMBO THE BADASS ELEPHANT, The Game Freak and ...:

Who cares? It's not like this is some big blockbuster title we're missing out on, which Wii U owners should be well used to by now. I get that it's collaboration with GameFreak, but lets not forget that GameFreak does not mean Nintendo.



HylianSane commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Mario Kart DS was one of the best built Kart games for its time, with handheld multiplayer and a pretty decent range of content. Up until that point, quality-wise, DS was the best. From then until MK8, I feel like they tried to do so many different gimmicks with the series that it overshadowed what Mario Kart should have been at its core: A solid racing game with the best track design out there and plenty of content.

Mario Kart 64 will always hold a special place in my heart, but going back and playing that game now after getting used to the improvements to the series over the years makes it hard to really enjoy. Therefore, 64 is purely nostalgic to me now and I would have to say, without a doubt, that Mario Kart 8 is the best all-around title in the series.



HylianSane commented on Super Mario Advance 2: Super Mario World:

The only thing better about the original over this GBA version is the option for two-player. Otherwise, I see this as a superior port. The addition of not only a specific sprite set for Luigi but his own moves and Yoshi abilities, as well as the inclusion of the Yoshi coin collection menu, I only see how players would lose-out on the various improvements should they choose the original instead.

My biggest gripe with this being released is the same one I had about Advance 1, and that is no discount for those who already purchased the original game.



HylianSane commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

I'm not going to complain one single bit about GBA being on Wii U and not 3DS right now, regardless of how much sense it makes. However, the subheading for this article really got my attention: "Business needs trump the natural order".

In my opinion, a good way to include both of these would be to have by now introduced GameCube titles into the Virtual Console. The "natural order" would expect Wii U to be able to handle these games as those systems which closely resemble the Wii U's power (Xbox 360 and Ps3) both had original Xbox games and Ps2 games added to their library. Hell even N64 games have yet to make an appearance on the Wii U VC, although it is almost a foregone conclusion that they will be added at "some point". That point should have been about six months ago in my honest opinion, and by this point we should be seeing GC games being introduced.

As a kid, I distinctly remember going to the store with my dad to buy Sonic 3 for the Genesis. When I got back out to the car, I realized that they had mistakenly sold me a GameGear Sonic game, so we took it back in and returned it. Instead of getting Sonic 3, I ended up getting Aladdin at the last minute.

As big of a Sonic fan as I was and still am to this day, I have never regretted changing my decision on getting this game instead. It was simply brilliant, and is a constant reminder of how bad video games based on movies or shows these days are compared to the glory days of old.
