Jamester0722 commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

@Giygas_95 Playing Tropical Freeze reminded me why I love video games. The game play is super tight, graphics are great, and the atmosphere is just pure fun!

Bayonetta 2 was a close 2nd for me, but since I haven't finished it yet (played through Bayonetta 1 first) I felt that DK deserved the vote!



Jamester0722 commented on PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads for Donkey...:

I bought the Luigi PDP "Gamecube" style controller on a whim. It was the last one left at my local Gamestop, and I have seen how fast they disappear off of shelves. After playing a few rounds of Smash with it, I decided to test it on other games as well (including Bayonetta). It's a decent controller, but I was surprised at how light it feels. The buttons are also very "clicky". Besides that, it controls as expected. It will definitely do the job as I have friends over to play Smash during the Christmas season.



Jamester0722 commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

I'm a big fan of Platinum Games. I really enjoyed Mad World and Vanquish last generation and so far have loved Wonderful 101 this generation (really looking forward to Scalebound). I have never played Bayonetta, but I am looking forward to playing both on my WiiU!



Jamester0722 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

Of course the day of the Direct happens to be the same day that I have to attend a special after hours event for my job.... I guess I'll watch it Friday! Have to avoid spoilers until then! (Who am I kidding? I'll be all over the net reading everything I can about it! haha)



Jamester0722 commented on Animal Crossing Content Is Coming To Monster H...:

I love Animal Crossing, but this is getting ridiculous. I was like "The Villager in Smash! That is awesome!" and "The Villager and Isabelle in Mario Kart 8. That's crazy!", but now I'm like "Isabelle in Monster Hunter.... okay. Now we're going a little too far."



Jamester0722 commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

I went on to the eShop and downloaded the new Kart DLC, and it tells me that in order to install it I need to start Mario Kart 8. When I do the game starts, but the install never kicks in. I go into the game and the new Mercedes-Benz karts don't show up. Any ideas?



Jamester0722 commented on Cliff Bleszinski Thinks Super Mario 3D World I...:

The one thing Nintendo is missing (and I know it's been said many times before) is marketing. Part of the reason the Wii sold so well? The "Wii Would Like To Play" commercials I saw all the time on the TV and at the movie theater. How many commercials have I seen in total since the release of the Wii-U? 2. Yes, 2. That includes TV, Movie theater, and Online Pre-roll videos. That's not a good sign. How will anyone buy it if they have never heard of it?



Jamester0722 commented on Rare Originally Conceived Dinosaur Planet As A...:

I've always had a soft spot for Star Fox. I own every game. I feel that the only game that really had a misstep was Star Fox Assault on GameCube. I think the actual concept was fine, on-rail shooter mixed with 3rd-person action game, but the 3rd-person part of the game was really clunky. Imagine if they remade the game (or a game similar to it) using all of the 3rd-person controls that have been refined today.



Jamester0722 commented on Talking Point: The GamePad and its Role Defini...:

I really do love my WiiU, but if I were completely honest with myself, the only time I really use it is for off-screen play; Otherwise I am using the pro-controller or Wii Remote and Nunchuck. At the same time, I don't think a "Wii2" would have sold any better than the WiiU with the gamepad. I actually think it would sell less, since most people would think "been there done that". In a way I feel that the WiiU is what the Wii should have been all those years ago.



Jamester0722 commented on Nintendo to Bring "Brand-New Types of Games" t...:

I think this generation the WiiU will only be used for Nintendo exclusives and indie games. Every single game on Kickstater seems to be coming to WiiU and PC (they never mention PS4 or XBoxOne). It just means I will need a second system.... again.



Jamester0722 commented on Video: Reggie Shows Off Wii U to Jimmy Fallon,...:

For everyone wondering what else he demoed on video game week:
Monday - XboxOne Game: Killer Instinct
Tuesday - Playstation 4 Game: Knack
Wednesday - Watch Dogs
Thursday - Call of Duty Ghost
Friday - WiiU

And to answer your second question: "Yes. He looked just as awkward playing the other systems as well...



Jamester0722 commented on Interview: Zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma Talks DL...:

I am happy with Nintendo's current DLC plans, like what they are doing with Super Luigi U for NSMBU. They use the assets already on the disc to create an entirely new 2nd play through. That way they keep it fresh and familiar at the same time!



Jamester0722 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Wii U Lineup Makes C...:

To me, after watching the Nintendo Direct a second time and watching the Developer Diaries, I feel Nintendo has a great showing. For the rest of the year we have Game&Wario soon, Pikmin 3 in August, Wonderful 101 in September, Wind Waker HD in Octoner, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze and WiiFitU in November, and Mario 3D World in December. That sounds like a decent line up to me, and that doesn't include eShop titles or what's announced for 2014 (Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros.) The only thing missing is 3rd party support to fill in the gaps.



Jamester0722 commented on NBA 2K14 Won't Be Slam Dunking On Wii U:

I don't care about Sports games at all, but there is honestly NO reason this isn't coming to WiiU (I am mainly saying this because WiiU needs more games and more support, no matter what it is). If it's coming to X1, PS4, X360, and PS3 they obviously have an engine that will run it. And they can't blame it on current install base, since with X1 and PS4 they are technically making a game for systems with an install base of 0. I just don't understand why the gaming industry sees Nintendo as this "black sheep" they want nothing to do with...
