ikki5 commented on Target Blast Mini-Game Blows Up on Super Smash...:

@SockoMario @TeeJay and the Wii U version will probably be about a month to a month and a half following the 3DS version and if they wait until then to spill the info, it will be too late. The Wii U version will be over shadowed by the 3DS version. It is already bad enough that they are releasing them at different time with the 3DS version first as it will already result in poorer sales for the Wii U version because face it, most people are just going to jump on the 3DS version, then play it to pieces and then get bored and many will not bother with the Wii U version.

ikki5 commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Delay in Europe...:

so... does this mean that NA won't have the best launch? Though I am still expecting to hear a NA delay for this game.

@Octane Xenoblade is a Nintendo game. Nintendo owns the Xenoblade IP and Nintendo owns Monolith Soft as of 2007 after buying it from Namco Bandai meaning that Xenoblade Chronicles X is a Nintendo game.

ikki5 commented on Target Blast Mini-Game Blows Up on Super Smash...:

@The_Ninja that because I can only afford one version and that one version will be Wii U. If he is going to make them equal, he better start announcing it soon because if they wait until the 3DS version is out, I am afraid that is going to be too late as the 3DS is just going to over shadow the Wii U version then. The gap between releases isn't really that much and if there is nothing new by the time the 3DS one comes out, what would interest people that are in my boat that can only afford one, what is going to interest them to wait? Nothing. If there is nothing at all that is different or enough to merit even getting the Wii U version, I may even just skip over this entirely.

oh look... another minigame feature on the 3DS... now... what will the Wii U get that is different (and don't give me that crap stages and trophies excuse) because again...The Wii U lacks everything.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (North America):

@JaxonH The reason I am bothered with it is that they should be chunking these out at a rather quick pace, especially if they are just going to dish out the quality retail titles out once every 4 or 5 months. But instead it is one title a week that most of the time, no one cares about. They told us that they would improve it but over all, they haven't.

@JaxonH yeah, they are releasing them in August... but yet at the same time, if you look at it with Europe, they got them all one one day and with the way the VC releases work, that megaman game will most likely be the only title released on the day so pretty much, they are spreading them out over all making it so they can do less releases and less work.

ikki5 commented on One Classic Mega Man Game Is Coming to Wii U E...:

So... instead of releasing them in a bunch like they did for Europe... they are going to spread it out so they don't have to release anything else.... awesome... At least this might mean we will get more titles

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (North America):

@brandonbwii No, the garbage support for it makes it crap. Like come on, we have to wait 3-6 months for a quality retail game, abysmal VC services, massive delays, The horrible decisions and the worst kind of ID system you can get, and the constant talk of improving things and then nothing happens. remember last year they acknowledged that they knew the VC was poor and that they would improve it? Well, they havn't done much. We'd get the few odd week of stuff and then back to complete crap. The least they could do is get the digital releases, push and convince others to port their games to the Wii U ( and 3DS but it has a great library) and VC better as that would be next to nothing to do compared everything else. This is all just adding to the nails in the coffin.

@unrandomsaand you guys got similar things as well. For example, what is happening right now with the NES remix that we don't have. The difference with this is you guys get great deals and we got games for the 3DS (which i got none of them). Personally I'd rather the massive sale

sigh.... at least we finally got Battle network but... why no Megaman 5 and 6 either? Europe got all 3 released at the same time but NA only gets one... This is just pathetic. Wii U might be my last Nintendo console.

ikki5 commented on Ocarina Of Time Began Life As A Remake Of Zeld...:

@Artwark most people that hate it never played the original and played it after a bunch of the others ones. Most of the time their argument is that it is too different from the others when they tend to forget, when this one was made, there was only one Zelda game before it.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

They should expect this, the console is almost 4 years old now. What is even more interesting is the fact that the 3DS is the best selling console world wide right now.

The Wii U on the other hand... how they are handling it is just atrocious. Management need to be cut and new people need to come in. Sorry but Reggie and Iwata plus a few others....as much as I like they, they are doing a bad job that will sent the company to the grave if they keep doing what they are doing.

ikki5 commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

@Unca_Lz Yes, I agree that it does not mean sales, however, doing nothing will get you no where at all. The Market business is about taking risks, not taking any risks when you are already starting to struggle is a set up for more failure. Even more so, not putting a product there means no one gets to know you and with a country that holds 1/6th of the worlds population (yes, I know a lot of them are probably in poverty), you must be stupid to not at least get your foot in the door.

ikki5 commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

Sigh, Nintendo's management really needs to be let go, needs a massive overhaul and new people need to come in. I really don't understand this here, this is pretty much them saying "We don't want money so we are not going to go there". Like come on. I know Nintendo has tons of money but doing nothing isn't going to make that money grow nor will it allow it to be maintained at a healthy level. It seems that every month there is just bad decision over bad decision and this one is just another bad one. If they don't get in there now, they won't get in there at all. Need an example? Look at the Xbox in Japan. Sony and Nintendo started there, the Japanese people knew them and recognized them and then Microsoft comes in, not well known and boom. Xbox 360 is a flop. Nintendo will be the same by next Gen for China... that is if they decide to even bother. With the people in charge now, they'll be is horrible shape next gen.

ikki5 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

Well, though i think everything Nintendo has don't with the info is good... but it is still lacking. Yeah, they are good at creating hype.... well kind of. It is just they seem to put their efforts into one thing, currently it is Mario Kart. We don't get too much on smash but it is slowly shifting. There are just so many things though that seem to be left behind such as other games and other services. Personally, I found they generated more hype from the directs where as this year... it's lacking and the hype is more directed at one thing instead a more broad spectrum.

And another week that just proves how much more crappy NoA is compared to NoE. No Megaman, no Pokemon, less discounts, more crap, worse club Nintendo selection, and later release dates (most of the time when they are not released on the same day).

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th July (Europe):

@Grumblevolcano
yeah but... with how NoA has been going, you cannot really bet on that any more. Zelda Link to the Past, Mario 3, Pokemon trading card game plus many others either have not arrived yet or were delayed for a very long time. However at the same time, this would be Capcom doing this, not Nintendo so it might be very much more likely.

ikki5 commented on Video: Watch Zelda Lay The Smackdown With The ...:

The wind wake makes no sense for Zelda to use... It is possible that she may never see it in the game if I remember correctly. Also.... she doesn't sound.... right at the start there. I also hope there will be a more difficult setting for this. That little Bokoblin when Zelda was moving that tornado around... it just stood there stepping from side to side right beside her... I don't want the game to be too easy :P

You know it's bad when you can see it all without scrolling and you can see the votes... But don't worry guys, remember, we are apparently better than NoE.

@Zach777
Didn't that happen for 2013 because 2014 was the focus?

@GuitarAnthony

yeah but the fact that the 3DS actually got releases and 5 times the number of discounts makes up for the fact that there is no VC game like the Wii u did.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

@ChuJelly The rewards in general are lacking. Both Status and non status rewards are horrible. They are the worst out of all the regions. They probably chose these for the status rewards simply because, everyone who wants them, owns them. They can still make money on the GBA games so why give them away?

Also, the fact that Earthbound is on here tells me that NA won't be getting the earthbound discount that Europe got.

@Starwolf_UK

Wii mode? last time i checked, you could use the Wii shop on the Wii U in Wii mode to use your Nintendo points cards. yeah those systems are dead but you can still get the games on the Wii VC. yeah they would be 50 hz for you guys... so you have me on that one. But if you had read my other posts, you'd see the fact that having the ability to get one of two $30 games is useless to me. I own them both. In fact, I used both of them to help get me to platinum Status so that "great deal" s no longer a great deal anymore for the simple reason, redundancy downloads doesn't get me more or better. it gives me the same so my net gain over all is 0. This is the big problem with this way of handling the rewards over all. The bigger games, i am willing to bet that 75-80% of people that got to platinum, they already have them, so that would leave you with a bunch of $5 eshop games which in turn, a lot of people would already have them such as myself. This reward system for this year pretty much makes it so you can get that game you cared less about or possibly never cared about at all. Look at the replies in this thread. it is so easy to tell who is from NA and who is not. The people from the EU, just reply saying how much of horrible people we are because we wanted something else other than something the majority of us already own. The NA people are upset with a few ok with it because their don't have one of the larger titles so this actually benefits them while the majority either get nothing, or something they never cared for because they had no interest in it to begin with.

I would be greatly disappointed if this never came to the west for the simple reason that they released the first one. The first one wasn't the complete story and to leave someone just hanging would be a complete douche thing to do.

@Starwolf_UK @Jazzer94

just so you know, Over priced is better than nothing at all which is essentially what the NOA Club Nintendo has ((even though the coins/stars are extra so over priced technically should exist however when there is no point to even having them because nothing is available to you that matters, that is where the problem should be). The best thing we have is a poster set and maybe those pouches. Other than that. it's a joke, NOA has the worst Club Nintendo selection out of the regions that have access to club Nintendo. At least you guys have stuff that is worth spending points on and have the entire downloadable library available to you on the Wii and DSi and not a bunch of free games you don't want or you would already own through getting the platinum.

ikki5 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

@Jazzer94 Those sound tracks was better than all these combined, plus the key chains, and the Wii Points cards.... these are worth far more than what these platinum rewards especially when you already own pretty much everything and those things plus the game and watch you mention. There is tons of great stuff on the EU club Nintendo which is FAR better than having a club Nintendo that is cheaper but nothing on it anyway. Face it. EU Club Nintendo > NOA Club Nintendo.

@FernandoMachado
Don't expect a lot from Game and Wario. I got about 10 hours out of that game. Very little content. The best minigame on there is the one when you are trying to play the video game in bed without your mom finding out.

wow.... I have almost ALL of those already.... Like what the hell? What are they thinking. If people got to platnium status then they spent $600 on stuff so would they expect a lot of platnium status people to already have most of these?
