I love everything Nintendo, but also enjoy gaming on other consoles. My first game was Mega Man 3, and my all time favorite is MH4U. Also a HUGE fan of DKC and Fire Emblem. I own a Wii U, PS4, X1, 3DS and Vita. And of course, a Gamecube and Wii.

@joey302
Relax. Those resources are necessary to develop new tech. And 9 times out of 10 the stuff never reaches market. These are not game developers that would have made a new game for you to play- this does not affect you or me or anyone else.

It's just a waste of money and investment on their part. But not our worries.

I love Iwata- the man was a genius and brilliant businessman, but like all genius minds, it swings both ways. You'll see the greatest ideas reach mass success, and you'll see the absolute worst ideas fathomable crash and burn.

This was of the latter.

I used to think Wii U was going to have the best library to date, knowing it wasn't filled out yet, but now in hindsight I see the GC and SNES still have it beat. But it's definitely the 3rd best in Nintendo console history- NES was garbage, N64 had a decent handful but they all suck compared to Wii U games, and Wii just wasn't as good.

As for handhelds, DS had the worst library of any Nintendo console to date aside from Virtual Boy, and GameBoy is a joke compared to current games. GBA was amazing, but, just not as good. It had more solid games quantity wise, but all of them fall short of their 3DS counterparts.

Gotta disagree, strongly.

And to clarify, his remark was concerning 3DS. And 3DS has had strong titles for years. Again, 2 more release in just 2 weeks.

As for Wii U/3DS, ya, Metroid is missing. So is F-Zero. So are others. But missing a few doesn't mean there are no strong titles.

A good number of members here (including myself) consider the 3DS library to be the best Nintendo handheld spread to date. And there's a reason for that. Best handheld Mario Kart, first Smash, best Zelda (possibly even better than the console entries too), remakes of numerous N64 faves, Fire Emblem Awakening (and soon Fates Birthright and Conquest), Kid Icarus, Stella Glow, Bravely Default... the list goes on and on.

@ZAZX

There are no more scalper and stock issues. In case you haven't been following, amiibo are now in such abundant supply they're being slapped with orange clearance stickers just 2 months after release.

Ever since wave 5 everything has been way overproduced. I suspect they need to cut back production soon before they all end up in the clearance bin.

I saw Mabel, Tom Nook and Chibi Robo for $4 brand new on Amazon yesterday. Those haven't been out that long.

@Freeon-Leon
"If there was a "white man job" it would surely offend some people"

That's a ridiculous comparison. This wasn't the "Native American" job class as in referring to race, this was the Tomohawk job class relating to a historically documented culture. Has nothing to do with race.

Just like Egyptians in Tomb Raider Temple of Osiris, it's a game that embraces history and the various cultures of the world.

This never had anything to do with race until people wanted to make it about race. The character is white for crying out loud!

That is unrelated to "kiddie image". That's saying people don't play on Nintendo because they're afraid they'll be seen as immature.

And most males over 18 are grown enough to not have such a child-like mentality. The only ones who think that way are, actual children.

Most of the adult world just plays whatever they like- and sure, most of that is mature AAA games, but I promise you they wouldn't think twice about playing a rated E game if they found it fun. Not for one second does a grown man stop and say "ya know I really love this game BUT, it doesn't have any blood or swearing and my friends might label me as childish for playing it".

Like I said, only children think that way.

"means that nobody will ever complain that Nintendo games are Kiddie"

Seriously, who cares if some think that. The only ones who care are in fact little children who care about their image, or adults with a child's mentality.

So I say let em think what they want. If a person is such a child that they actually care about the games they play "not looking kiddie" then I say give em 10 years to grow up, and see if they still give a rat's a** about such an immature, irrelevant factor.

Wow, that brings back memories. This was the 2nd game I beat for Wii (first being Metroid Prime 3) and my first Zelda title (was just getting back into gaming, think I was about 22 years old at the time).

Yes, now I'm definitely hyped.

I don't really care, just so long as they're good games. Obviously I want a Metroid and F-Zero since its been so long, but I LOVED Pikmin 3 so Pikmin 4 and Zelda U, along with 1 other (possibly Smash Wii U + DLC) would be pretty darn good. I mean, that would certainly blow the Wii U launch out of the water...

@Yorumi
Wii U has too many skipped IP's (mostly stemming from the fact this generation will be so short). But what is there is extremely solid. GameCube has always boasted my favorite Nintendo library (it had 2 Metroid Primes, the best F-Zero, 2 Star Fox games, 2 Pikmin games, etc). But what makes me respect the Wii U library is that of those limited releases, many are the best there's ever been (Pikmin 3 better than 1/2, NSMBU better than all others, Smash and Mario Kart 8 my favorites yet, etc), and even some of the best 3rd party games (Bayonetta 2, W101 and MH3U).

It could also be that it just feels so much better finally playing these games in HD.

JaxonH commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. Planned as NX Launch...:

Either Smash Wii U gets an NX port or NX won't see Smash at all. It's gonna be a short generation and no way Sakurai starts from scratch again. Certainly not to be ready at launch.

All other properties can safely see sequels but Sakurai isn't going to dive right back in when this one has barely been out a year and still receiving DLC. So this is one IP where either it gets ported or it gets skipped. I'll gladly take a port.

@Xenocity
You sure do like informing us of how unhappy gamers are on other sites lately, almost every article.

Don't think anyone cares how other people on other sites feel- people here are strongly opinionated and make up their own minds, be it with or against the grain.

I got the game and tried it out, and while it's no Monster Hunter, it's actually pretty fun. Keep in mind I LOVE MH though so this style of game is right up my alley. I think they did a good job on the real time combat though.

JaxonH commented on Nintendo Outlines Details of DLC Map Pack One ...:

Heck ya I'm all in! I'll probably be spending around $400 on this game in total- 3 Limited Editions and all 3 paths digitally, plus all DLC map packs for both my main 3DS and smaller travel model.

I loved the DLC from Awakening and am just glad they brought it back for Fates, and at a considerable bulk discount this time

So excited for this! Gonna be the best games on 3DS this generation, and it's almost here.

Got several copies of the special edition preordered through BestBuy for 20% off, and I'm buying all 3 digitally for my on-the-go New 3DS with Fates faceplates. I'll transfer my main account from my New 3DS XL to the LE Fates XL when it releases.

I'm playing Birthright first, then Conquest, then Revelation, then the DLC map packs.

JaxonH commented on Review: Final Fantasy Explorers (3DS):

@invictus4000
The true appeal of Monster Hunter is the real time combat, which has so much complexity and demands so much skill it becomes an addiction. Knowing invincibility frames and timing dodges to the millisecond... Utilizing the handful of skills you have to the uttermost... discerning tells and reading your enemy in real time and putting your reactionary skills to the test... that's real hardcore gaming.

This game can copy everything else about Monster Hunter, but without the serious, hardcore combat, it's nothing like it. That is and always will be the heart of Monster Hunter. And that is why people who "don't get it"... don't get it. They haven't tasted the sweet fruit of true skill-based combat.

Nice. My in-game counter says 458 hours but I have left my system on many times to collect FrontierNav revenue so that's not really accurate.

I've never heard of you passing up a game over graphics- especially The Last Story, a game supposedly better than even Xenoblade and which I thought looked par for the course as far as Wii games go. Then again I'm still reading your complaints of Star Fox Zero so what do I know.

I liked Pandora's Tower but got sidetracked before it ever sucked me in. From what I hear it was a solid JRPG, but nothing that could rival The Last Story or Xenoblade.

Makes me want to mod my GC, but then I'd have to hook it up, and I have no room besides the 3 current gen systems and Wii. So I'll just keep playing GC from my Wii. Running from hard drive and through a component cable they look pretty good as is.

Yes I forgot how Tropical Freeze slapped you silly... of course they did include all those nifty items like green balloons and invincibility juice.

Maybe you could scan Diddy or DK and get a barrel on demand?

What I'd rather see though is a bunch of super tough minecart levels unlocked Think you could get on board with that?

"But I have to finish XCX first, if that's even possible."

It's possible. I beat the game... finally. And it was everything I'd hoped it would be. I still play, would love to get a Lv. 60 Skell but I just don't have the patience to scrounge up all those mats.

The question is, what game to play next? Fire Emblem Fates releases in 4 weeks, so I've got a little time. Back to Stella Glow? Tales of Zesteria? Or maybe... perhaps, Xenoblade Chronicles 3D...? What I really want to know though, is if you ever played The Last Story. My brother says he loved it as much as Xenoblade...

@CrazedCavalier
MH3U didn't allow Miiverse pics, and I sunk 600 hours into that game. So when MH4U released, I was very interested in posting pictures to Miiverse (which was only possible on New 3DS). And with 400 hours in that game I got a lot of good ones- it was also just nice picking up and playing with no strings attached.

But ya, the CPP is actually comfortable, and if you don't have a new 3DS you can manage. But I think most people, once they've experienced the luxuries of the New 3DS, won't want to go back to playing on original models. Some games (like Fates) will see no difference but many others (Majoras Mask, MH4U, Smash, Xenoblade, Hyrule Warriors, Binding of Isaac, etc) do, and that's beyond the standard benefits of faster downloads, stable 3D, etc.

JaxonH commented on Video: Hyrule Warriors Legends Footage Shows a...:

Seems nearly every game that releases now runs better on New 3DS. As if it wasn't worth it already just for the faster downloads and stable 3D (and C-Stick so you don't have to tote that gargantuan CPP around), consistently superior performance seals the deal.

But at least original 3DS owners can still play the game, right? Better than nothing. Still, I'd look into upgrading if I didn't have a New 3DS by now. Too many games that are inferior on older models.

When stock was abysmal everyone said it wasn't the content they were upset about, but the fact they couldn't find the amiibo in question. Said if amiibo were readily available there would be no problem.

JaxonH commented on 17 Games Get North American eShop Discounts in...:

I wholeheartedly recommend Injustice Gods Among Us for $6.99 That game was worth it at $59.99 so this is a STEAL. It's also one of the best fighters I've ever played aside from Street Fighter (it's by the Mortal Kombat developers, but with superheroes and without all the gory, grotesque crap in MK).

@Utena-mobile
Sin & Punishment is a classic, but I really recommend buying Sin & Punishment 2: Star Successor (Wii game available as VC release on Wii U eShop). It's not on sale, but it's got to be the greatest shmup of all time- SO much better than the N64 release.

Watch some video reviews, I think you'll be sold once you see it in action.

No you're right, the way I said that did come off somewhat harshly. I definitely should have found a more neutral way of phrasing that. But know that it was not intentional to offend you.

Whereas you are very much intentional about your name calling and insults. Which only serve to make you look childish as someone who doesn't have a valid argument.

@ga3tr0n

Hmmm... I see. You derived all of that about me over a simple difference of opinion. Interesting.

Let me explain something to you- when you comment on an article and express that self-righteous opinion of yours, you are inviting debate and verbal feedback- some in agreement with similar opinions, others in disagreement with conflicting opinions. You seem to be upset with me for "daring" to challenge your own view and stance.

If you can't handle topical discussion in a civil manner without insults and name calling, perhaps it would be better to not comment at all. You want to get something off your chest, tell your pillow at night. But if you post here, expect feedback. And if you aren't prepared for your opinions to be challenged, don't share them where we have discussions. But if you do insist on venting here, at least defend your stance with dignity, without resorting to all of that name calling nonsense.

@ga3tr0n
No, it really does strike me as petty and trivial to allow the sale of extra content to rustle your feathers to the point of actively avoiding games.

I can appreciate the fact you have no interest in amiibo- not everyone will (although I'm 31 and have no problem buying amiibo). And that's fine. But there's a difference between not buying amiibo out of lack of interest and boycotting any game that sells content beyond that which is pressed on the disc.

When I say you can't escape it, what I mean is the sale of DLC is everywhere. Sure, of course you can "simply not buy them", but my point is you're going to "simply not be buying the vast majority of games out there" because almost every game sells content beyond that of the retail release.

And if you think that's not a true statement, I challenge you to buy a PS4 or Xbox One. It won't take long for you to discover what I and others already know- almost every single major release sections off content for specific retailers, for preorders, and for expansion passes and DLC.

You're free to your opinion, of course, but I'm also free to explain why I think it's an unreasonable one.
