JumpmanZ commented on Pokémon Black & White Version 2 Announced:

Game Freak and Nintendo can still amaze. The map could be entirely changed around (Icarus City becoming developed), new features could be added (new Entralink modes), and new battle types and strategies. Add to that a continuation in story with a connected plot, changed time frame, and newly appointed Gym Leaders, this could feel like (in Yogscast terms) "a whole new game". The player might even properly take the throne as league champion after stopping Chimera Laboratories (from Mother 3) from fusing Pokémon together.

JumpmanZ commented on Talking Point: Achievements, Trophies and Wii U:

The way for Nintendo to implement achievements into Wii U games is for the "achievements" to take the form of coins. These coins tie into you nintendo network/ club.nintendo account, these new coins being worth a hundredth of a normal club.nintendo coin. Nintendo caps the amount of coins that can be given away within a game, harder goals earn you more coins, pointless/easy goals can be worth no coins, and surveys are automatically made available for played games, because your account is monitoring your play history. Players' in-game accomplishments actually amount to real world products or more downloadable games. Other game companies could even offer their own real-world awards on club.nintendo. Everyone's problems are solved.

JumpmanZ commented on Talking Point: The Future of Pokémon:

I believe that the next Pokémon game should incorporate DLC in the form of new areas, items, and extra Pokémon that would normally be featured in a fully priced third release. This would keep players interested and playing between releases.

JumpmanZ commented on Talking Point: Wii U and the Future of the Onl...:

I think this is a good way for developers to continue turning a profit on their hard work long after a game has left the lime-light. I, however, hope that Nintendo and Sega will continue putting the full content of games on the disc, not locked by anything. I hope that Nintendo only uses their online system minimally to legitimately add content like new items in Animal Crossing, side quests in Zelda, and levels in Mario. DLC should be a privilege to purchase, not a punishment.

JumpmanZ commented on What Are Aonuma's Controller Ideas for Wii U Z...:

I was thinking this from the beginning. You click on your slingshot, hold up the controller, aim your shot, and pull back the onscreen slingshot to shoot. You could also pull back in different directions to aim more precisely.

JumpmanZ commented on Wii Budget Range Grows with Super Mario Galaxy...:

Super Paper Mario, now that it's so low. I haven't played it but I recently beat Thousand-Year Door. I might get Mario Galaxy now, but I already have Galaxy 2, so I'm not sure on that one. I'll also pick up Twilight Princess once I finish Ocarina and Majora on VC.

JumpmanZ commented on Talking Point: The Future of Metroid:

I'd say Metroid: Other M style gameplay, but an onscreen or physical button switches to Anthony driving Samus's ship to bomb enemies. When Samus, you could still use the screen and gyro as a scan visor for shooting missiles and the like.

JumpmanZ commented on Talking Point: Wii U - Revolution or Evolution?:

I agree with JimLad on the way two screens interact with each other. You can aim a slingshot in Zelda by holding up your controller to the screen, aiming with the gyroscope, and pulling back the sling on the touchscreen.

In Mario & Sonic at the Winter Olympic Games 2014 you could throw snowballs from the controller to the TV in that one weird (but fun) dodgeball event.

There's just a new dynamic to it if the screens aren't attached to each other.

JumpmanZ commented on The Thought of a Shooter-Only Future Makes Iwa...:

I personally hate FPSs. I have no interest in killing people online screaming into a headset. All of my friends love them. If they force me to play when I'm at their house, I camp. I just camp and jump off cliffs. They're both fun ways to play because they bother my friends enough to switch to Lego: Star Wars. :D

I do have one sensible friend that plays Pikmin, though. He and I will hopefully be able to play Pikmin 3 online once Wii U comes out. Or at least give us dual U controller support for local multiplayer.

JumpmanZ commented on Reggie Discusses Wii U Branding, "Not a Diffic...:

No one will want a PS3 or 360 once the Wii U is released. All of the games available on those platforms will be on the U with unique and more intuitive controls. It's more powerful both graphically and in CPU than competing consoles (Nintendo has confirmed that it's more powerful, just not how much so). Lastly, every Nintendo system has the best exclusives. Not to mention Mario, Zelda, Metroid, DK, and all of the other Nintendo franchises that drive sales of every one of their consoles. A lot of those "core gamers" or "true gamers" (as the author of this article would define them http://exm.nr/TrollGuurl ) bought a Wii for Zelda because it's such a great franchise. I'm buying one as soon as I have the money.

JumpmanZ commented on Review: Sonic Advance (Game Boy Advance):

This was the first game I ever beat and the second game I ever owned.

Knuckles was my favorite character, and I always called the invincibility upgrade flower power. This is also the only game I've ever had survive a trip through the washer.

JumpmanZ commented on Talking Point: How 3DS Can Thrive at E3:

The games I'm most excited for are Kid Icarus: Uprising (which definitely should've been a launch title), Paper Mario 3D (because I love the series (plus chomp and pokey partners have been rumored)), and a Super Mario Bros. title that lets you take a 3D picture, and makes it into a level. You then platform across your desk and try to reach the flag (my personal idea that I've had since the 3DS came out).

JumpmanZ commented on 3DS eShop's May Launch to Ensure it Beats Wii ...:

I get it. It's like a better Shop Channel with Nintendo Channel built in. You can watch new trailers and then go buy the game. What I don't understand is people saying you can't download full retail games. Unless its just a trailer and information, the screenshot shows Pilotwings Resort. I also hope they have 3D Nintendo Week. I know the show's really cheesy, but its got a charm to it.

JumpmanZ commented on Hands On: Nintendo 3DS:

@35 The charger is a DSi charger that plugs into the cradle for easy charging. You can unplug it from the cradle and straight into the 3DS if you want to play plugged in. Or you could have a charger plugged into the cradle and just have one from a DSi for direct charging. However you do it, you can still easily play while charging. Hope that helped, now I have to get back to playing Pokemon Black. :)

JumpmanZ commented on Pokémon Black and White Catches a Million Tra...:

My mom's out picking up Black for me right now. (No, I don't have my mommy buy me my games, it's my money.) My friend Chad preordered both and he's really liking them. I think White sold more because of Zekrom. I'll just get one on the GTS.

JumpmanZ commented on Iwata Drops Sneaky Mario 3DS Hints:

Why is Nintendo porting N64 games to this? The GameBoy Color was an NES, the GameBoy Advance was an SNES, the DS was/is an N64. The 3DS should be making Gamecube and Wii level games.

JumpmanZ commented on Features: Five Nintendo Games to Thrill You in...:

WHY IS EVERYONE SAYING THEY'RE EXCITED FOR KIRBY'S EPIC YARN IN 2011? It came out in October!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Surprised to see no Skyward Sword, but I hope its still released this year. Has anyone else heard that Pokemon Black is way more hardcore than Pokemon White, but White has the better legendary.

JumpmanZ commented on Talking Point: Your Nintendo Moment of 2010:

The satisfying feeling of applying my Mario Kart wall cling. Other moments include playing DKCR for the first time, playing Epic Mickey for the first time, playing Metroid: Other M for the first time, and playing Super Mario Galaxy 2 for the first time. 4 of those were yesterday.
