@rjejr
Speaking of, my Gold Mario's came in the mail. I officially have every single amiibo released to date now. I'm ready for wave 4, I'm so ready rjejr...

Oh, that MM limited edition came back in stock as a bundle at Gamesop (through their website). So I finally ordered one (my BB order was canceled). It cost an arm and a leg though, cause it included Code Name STEAM, Majoras Mask, digital download of Link Between Worlds and digital MM Prima eGuide. I need to trade or sell all these extras- this is my 5th copy of Majoras Mask, got 2 extra gold Mario's, 2 extra Monster Hunter CE, etc etc. I might need to check out the trade thread and see what I can arrange.

Gosh darn Square Enix store though man. I got Type 0 in the mail, then the CE came in stock on their website so I ordered it, but steel case came crushed and dented. 3 emails now and still no response, I'm losing my patience

I love 3DS remakes because I like the 3D. I like having classic games preserved to play for all of time in 3D- and this one would have been a prime candidate. I'm not big on remakes in general when they're games from 7th generation, but for games 10-15 years old and older, absolutely... Bring em on.

You must! Cause I remember in the forum seeing who all I was playing with and you were in the forum, and I was playing with someone named Zombie something... I always thought that was you, even to this day. I always try to remember everyone I hunt with. Huh, maybe it was coincidence. I do have Tri but this recollection was of 3U

@Nico07
I thought Metroid Other M was one of the best games of last generation (certainly not as good as Prime, but that doesn't mean it wasn't great). I couldn't care less if Samus had emotions. It was manga-based after all, and stuck to those themes and story pretty closely. The entertainment of the game (like any good game) came from the gameplay.

The one thing that held Other M back from being even better though, was the lack of Nunchuk. Had we been able to use the Nunchuk's analog to move, not only would 360 degree control have been better, it would have given more buttons to use, AND, the Wiimote would have been pointing at the screen already, so no awkward pointing to shoot missiles then going back to sideways.

Even with those faults, the game will live on as one of the best games on the Wii. In fact, if they would fix the controls (which the Gamepad by default would solve the previous control issues) I would love to see a sequel. Too bad that'll never happen though. People hated the game for the most trivial reasons. And really over-exaggerated the extent of its faults.

JaxonH commented on Collector Cases for amiibo Secure Kickstarter ...:

I wouldn't buy them, but then again I open all my amiibos because I use them in my games. I understand there's a small segment of gamers who collect sealed merchandise, and I'm sure they'll really appreciate these cases. As for the rest of us though who actually open our amiibos and use them, this isn't really an option. Unless they made a display stand/case for opened amiibo with easy access when you need to take one out- that I would buy

As I recall, last year the eShop offerings were pretty weak wrapping up the fiscal year, but once March 31st hit (or whenever it is their fiscal year ends) they started dropping good GBA games every week for like 2 months straight.

I suspect the same will happen this year as well. I hope, anyways

Dude this is awesome! As a kid I used to go to Six Flags and ride the Texas Giant, Judge Roy Scream, the Flashback, and many others. In Six Flags Atlanta I remember the Ninja, which had a huge drop then spiraled straight into a corkscrew. I've developed a fear of heights as the years have passed, but I'd make myself ride this one...

JaxonH commented on Sony Hardware Takes Charge of Japanese Charts ...:

Ya, Sony had a really good run lately with some great releases- they earned their spot this week. After all, FFXV is consistently Famitsu's most anticipated game voted by readers. And the demo just dropped with FF Type 0. And it's actually really good too.

But as for the Vita, well, that I never understood. Even for Japan, it's lineup is unappealing at best. Then again, 3DS is reaching market saturation and there's plenty who don't own the Vita so...

@crimro1985
Yeah the gamepad has impressed me much more than I thought it would at first. Don't get me wrong, I still like a good, solid controller for some games but for the ones that really benefit from the second screen, I much prefer using it instead. It's become a standard for me really. Lol, sometimes I still look down at my Dualshock out of habit...

I won't go so far as to say I feel ripped off with the PS4. I don't care much for Sony or their policies, and true, most of the lineup is remakes, but the PS4 definitely has its moments of brilliance. Dragon Age was one of them. And there was just a spurt of good releases this past week- I just got Borderlands and RE Revelations 2 in the mail today (not interested in Bloodborne in the slightest, though it's reviewing well), and there's been a few remakes I never played before so those I appreciate. It's definitely not my favorite console, but it's getting better. Seems like it's finally getting some decent games I wanna play anyways...

@Ducked
PS4 has a better interface, but, X1 does, at least to me, seem to have better games coming out. Either way, there's not much difference in the two. My big two games I care about this year are Witcher and Batman, which are both multiplats anyways.

But, I just don't have time for them anymore. Heck, I barely have time for my Wii U anymore ever since the new3DS launched, and I was playing that thing every single day.

I tell you what though- I might play MH4U until Splatoon, then go paint some ink for a month, then run through Xenoblade quick, then switch over and run through Batman/Witcher, by which time X should be released, then after that move on to Star Fox and Zelda, and by the time those are wrapped up FE14 should be localized, and after that, FF15 should be out.

I got my game plan set for the next 12 months :)

I don't care what other people discuss. Never did. I just ignore it basically, people can spew whatever nonsense they feel like, I have no issue with that. I just mind my own business, until individuals who get hot and bothered by my actually liking Nintendo butt in and tell me I'm wrong for liking the gamepad, or I'm wrong for saying I like their innovation.

I've never taken issue with any of the those people or what they say. They take issue with me for not disliking everything they dislike.

You're not missing much. I just bought em because I knew I'd get one eventually, so why not now. The one game I'd say you missed is Dragon Age Inquisition. Definitely worth picking up whenever you do get one (unless you go Xbox- then you can add Forza Horizon 2 and Halo to the list).

Splatoon looks awesome too, I'll definitely set time aside from my 3DS for that one.

@Ducked
Ya me too. I played DKC Returns 3D just to warm up for DKC Tropical Freeze, and I wanna play Xenoblade before X releases.

Between Xenoblade, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate and Fire Emblem 14, I very well might not have time to play any other game this year though, as that's just 3 games on the 3DS. My FF15 demo is still untouched, and I was straight hyped for that. So yeah, Idk how Im gonna squeeze in playing all the Wii U games coming out this year (and Witcher 3 and Arkham Knight). Not enough time, something has to give.

@Superryanworld
Can't speak for others, but for me, it's because $50/yr x 8yr generation = $400 for online, the price I paid for the entire console, then factor in I own BOTH an Xbox One and PS4, and we're looking at close to a thousand bucks, just to have online access... Screw that.

Those free games aren't free either. They're rentals, and you're paying for them (good money too as I just stated above). When you stop paying the rental fee, they remove the games.

Im not gonna knock anyone else who chooses to go that route- my brother is one of them and adamantly defends its value. But I'm not seeing it. Any temporary games they offer anyways I won't play, cause I only have so much time and I'd rather spend it with a game I really like, and those games I buy day one.

So like I said, if it works for you, great, thumbs up awesome, but I don't see the slightest appeal. The only reason I'm a Plus subscriber is because my Sony fanboy brother bought me a year for Christmas lol...

And, you're not wrong. It's just that, well, as gamers sometimes I think we need to just shut up and play. Nintendo has done a lot of stupid stuff imo, a list too long for me to even name, but, at the end of the day, I don't care how many units the Wii U sells, or if Sony sees them as viable competition, or if they're market leader, or any of that stuff. I just wanna play and enjoy games, and then discuss those game I'm playing and enjoying, know what I mean?

It's not that Nintendo does no wrong, I'm just sick of hearing about it day in day out from the same people. It changes nothing. Nintendo's gonna do what they're gonna do, whether people like it or not. No sense harpig on about the same tired old stuff day in day out, know what I mean?

You take the good with the bad. But it's just video games, so how bad can "bad" really be? Imo, when it comes to trivial hobbies, there is no bad. Only the good you get out of it. Leave the rest.

@Yorumi
It's differnet because Sony locks online gameplay behind a paywall, but Nintendo creates full games that are just as robust as any predecessor before Amiibo, BEFORE creating additional content for those who buy them. You can't spin your way out of that fact. Adding Mii outfits in Mario Kart 8 wasn't stripping content because they had never done that in a previous game before so you can't say it was taken away. The same goes for all of the content amiibo unlocks. It's all content but has never been present in a previous entry. THAT is the difference.

Not to mention, not getting a Mii outfit isn't the same as not getting to play online whatsoever.

Sony is a greedy, money grubbing company that will syphen the shirt off your back in one game's worth of fees, DLC and post release content (but I guess when you're selling off entire divisions to stay in the black, extreme measures must be taken, right?) Nintendo gives full season passes that increase the games content 150% for $12.

So ya, I hope you do got it.

@Cyberbotv2
If you're buying games for club points and not to play the game itself, maybe video games aren't a good hobby for you. That stuff is a bonus- a nice little free extra (and we are not entitled to anything btw- they don't owe us any program), and should NEVER influence the decision of whether to purchase a game.

Besides. Club Nintendo was free. PS Plus and Xbox Live aren't free, they're paid services to access the Internet on your console (and as a little persuasion they let you temporarily rent a few throwaway indies each month and the occasional retail release- usually old). You pay for those services. Club Nintendo was a free, non-obligatory bonus that Nintendo never had to offer in the first place. When you buy a game on PS4 or X1, you don't get club rewards, you just get the game. Heck, you don't even get that- you get half a game. The other half must be unlocked through a paid recurring fee via PS Plus/Xbox Live, or you forfeit all online portions of that $60 game you just bought.

Point being, if we get rewards, cool. I'll take em. But I'm not gonna miss out on a game just because I don't get extra reward points. I'm not buying games for reward points, Im buying games because I'm a gamer and I wanna play games. It would be like skipping out on Chinese because you're not gonna get a fortune cookie at the end. You don't go for the fortune cookie, you go to fill up on good food.

But, to each their own.

@Darknyht
Well. The health bars are one thing I gotta have on screen. Those cant be bargained because it's so vital to know your health/stamina every waking second. But the map, oh most definitely gotta move that down to the pad. I only check when the monster leaves the area, so it makes no sense for me to occupy space for something I look at every 10 min when I'm switching areas. and the rest of the stuff are basically just tap shortcuts (Z target, 2 most used items, gestures, and the signal which I use to let others know I found a monster- and when I do find one I only have seconds to respond so the instant touch icon works well).

But sure, I understand some (like you) might prefer it on one screen for whatever reason. But the option is there for you to do so, and that's what counts. The game is better for the second screen precisely because it can be opted for by those who want to utilize it, and left alone by those who don't. Everybody wins.

@Zombie_Barioth
Well, if you had a car with bucket seats, temperature control, rear parking assist, would you say the core experience is still the same? Maybe a very few select people don't want the screen less cluttered, don't mind cycling through items when their health is low and a Tigrex is charging at them, maybe some don't mind going to the menu just to use gestures, etc... I don't think that means the game isn't substantially better with the 2nd screen though...

I mean, less just isn't more, know what I mean? There's no way having less screen real estate is better than more, no way slower item access is better than fast, no way not seeing where everything is in towns is better than seeing where everything is. No way quick tap target locking is better than none... Like I said, the game can still be played on one screen, but once you experience the benefits of two, you realize how much worse it was before.

It's kind of like- and forgive me but I'm going to use a Monster Hunter analogy- it's kind of like having the HG Earplug skill. Sure, the game can be played without it, but once you experience the added benefit you never want to hunt without them again. It makes you realize how annoying it is to play without them. Same concept with a second screen- sure you can play without it, but once you do you realize how annoying it is to not have it.

Sorry, jus had I answer that question. You say what incentive does someone have to buy a game on a dying platform? Um, to play it. Because people like to play games. Why WOULDN'T you buy a game you want on Wii U? What does "it dying" have anything to do with playing a game you wanna play? And just so you know, Wii U is not gonna have a short lifespan. They didn't reveal squat- they simply said they do have one in the works. They starte the Wii U less than 2 years after Wii released. And the Wii (Project Revolution) was begun YEARS before release. This is not news. It would be news if they said they actually didn't have a console in the works. That would be news.

What are you talking about? You sure you responded to the right person?

EDIT: Ok, got confused for a second on what you were saying. So ya. That's exactly what I'm saying. A phone is already HD. A jump from 720 to 1080 on a phone screen is barely noticeable. And all you're doing is looking at web pages and screen savers. Wow, big upgrade. My wallpaper has more pixels, amazing. But the addition of glasses-free 3D that uses eye tracking to maintain the image? That's huge. Adding a 2nd analog for games that need a 2nd analog? That's huge. The addition of extra shoulder buttons, ad NFC, and fasts download speeds? All huge, especially when the speeds were slow before. If they were already fast, and just got a quarter second faster, that's not huge.

Phone upgrades are only huge on paper. In practicality, they barely make a difference at all. The new3DS is both huge on paper AND practically.

But most importantly, no one is forcing your hand. Don't like it don't buy it. But you'd be hard pressed to get more practical improvements with any other upgrade. Heck, it even plays games not previously possible! What did the DSi do? Or the PSP Go, Or Vita Slim? Or PS3 Slim? Squat compared to what the new3DS does.

Ya, I wish it had an eject button too. But at least the manual eject is visible. I get so frustrated with the PS4 manual power and eject buttons- they're the size of a BB. But most of the time I can eject or power in from the controller so it's not an issue.

Two things that would make Wii U controllers perfect- an eject button on Gamepad (or in menu eject) and a headphone jack on Pro Controller. Oh well, gotta take the good with the bad...

As I said, it's best if you didn't reply to my posts. I come here to share in the joy of playing Nintendo games with other like minded fans, not argue about why I like something.

But I'll answer you this once- I like the gamepad because I've never enjoyed a golf game so much as Wii Sports Club golf- one of the funnest games with friends who golf I've ever played. I like the dual screen action in Wonderful 101, flying a space ship on TV while combatting aliens inside the ship on the gamepad. I like managing multiple characters at once in Pikmin 3- I can get more done that way and I like how the legend map shows on the gamepad with a satellite view on the TV as you pan. I like playing Monster Hunter with a clean screen ad item shortcuts (like max potions and far casters which I don't have time to cycle thru item list for at that crucial moment). I like playing Zelda with a map and quick tap inventory on the touch screen, just as I like it on 3DS.

I like designing stages by drawing them in Smash, and I love games like Tipping Stars and Rainbow Curse that just wouldn't work without the gamepad. I like playing with my own screen in Sonic Transformed, and the Murphy levels in Rayman Legends. I like using the gamepad as a first person window in games like Captain Toad and ZombiU. I like continuing to play when I go to the restroom or downstairs, and I like hand writing notes on Miiverse. There are many other examples of things I like, but I don't have time to list them all. Those are but a few.

Frankly, I love video games and most of my fun comes from Nintendo. I come here to share in that excitement. If a person doesn't like what Nintedo does, or their games and consoles, fine, but let us enjoy it in peace without constantly arguing how horrible everything is. Please.

@outburst
I do actually agree. Most gamers are wowed by artificial, materialistic factors rather than meaningful implementations. The gamepad, while it may not have wowed anyone, has actually been the most substantial, meaningful addition I've seen in a console. The Wiimote wowed, but more times than not made games worse. The gamepad doesn't wow, but almost always makes a game better.

Such is life though. That's why I'm in the minority of actual gamers, people who care more about substance than graphics and wow factor. People like to pick on the Wii U because it's an easy target, but even though it hasn't seen success, the Gamepad has done more for me in gaming than any innovation I the last 20 years. And it was such a no brainer. I'm spoiled by dual screen handhelds, and now I'm spoiled by dual screen consoles.

Idk, screw it though. If people don't like it they can just keep complaining, cause in the end, Nintendo is gonna do things the way I like em done, regardless of whether it is a safe bet. So ya, I'm playing games I like on a console I love. If others don't like it, well, sucks to be them I guess, cause I have nothing but praise for the Wii U.

@DarkKirby
Idk, hardware works fine for me. Games boot fast now, downloads don't take forever, games like Smash and MH4U can now handle Miiverse support... idk, if the argument is it's too weak, I say define what took weak is. It may not be as powerful as Vita, but it's powerful enough to do everything it needs to and do it well. To me, that's "just right".

And people buy new smartphones annually for way less upgrades than the new 3DS got. And pay twice as much. I have no doubt Nintendo is making a profit- after all, that is kinda the whole point. As long as I, the consumer, feel that $200 is justified, then it works. And I was definitely ready for a system capable of playing my favorite game (Monster Hunter) without needing a bulky accessory just to have a second analog and double shoulder buttons. The stable 3D really does steal the show though.

I read everything. Maybe I should have clarified. Ever since I called you out on your lie you didn't deny it for several posts.

And you're so full of it man.... You really need to buy the game, cause you'd feel pretty embarrassed after a couple hours. You'd be thinking "man, that stupid guy on NintendLife was actually right". It's incredibly complex. One of the most complex games I've ever seen. But it's not just the complexity, it's the fact that you need access to all the information in real time with Quick tap shortcuts. Something that cannot be said for other games. Or maybe it can, who cares, all I know is that THIS game needs a second screen. You have yet to go ask the community so why don't you go do that first before you come back telling me otherwise

It's a figure of speech- you're always so technical with everything. I'm overly confident, let's say that- to the point of being well beyond any reasonable doubt. And you have not denied it, which sums it up pretty well.

And no, there aren't any comparable games. MH fans look everywhere for a similar experience, and have yet to find one.

But, even if there were, you can't negate the fact that MH would be severely handicapped without a second screen. Here's a link to the community, go post and ask what the actual players think. They'll all tell you the same thing

That's exactly what I said, and I stand by it. Everyone here who plays MH knows this, as above comments have clearly illustrated. It is ignorant to think you know otherwise when you don't play the game

@Yorumi
I don't know everything about people I've never met, but I'm not dumb. You haven't played the game, and you know it. I know it, and we all know it. You used hearsay illustrations instead of firsthand experience. That was dead giveaway number one. Number two was the fact you would even argue the point, which is so beyond ridiculous to anyone who even remotely plays the game. Third, you have never posted in the monster Hunter community thread a single time. So no, I don't think I know everything about you but I do know one thing- you most definitely don't play the game but tried to pretend you did to gain credibility.

And that tells me you'll lie to win an argument. An argument you're making, I might add, because it bothers you to see that there are actually games that benefit from the Wii U gamepad, and you want to make it seem worthless and not beneficial. Conceding the point that you've never played the game concedes the point that the gamepad actually does have a use for the game. Which is why you're still arguing about it now.
