KillScottKill commented on NES-Themed Nintendo 3DS XL On The Way as GameS...:

The NES one is yuck. How uncreative can you get? "Eh... Just make it gray and throw a NES controller graphic on it." They should have designed the outside based on what the actual console looks like and the inside to mimic the controller. Not that hard, Nintendo.



KillScottKill commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

Pre-ordered on Amazon.

Again, some of you need to grow up. This is a solid entry to the Wii U's library and a worthy own. I couldn't care less who played it first. It will all look the same when I'm looking at my collection in 10 years.



KillScottKill commented on Ubisoft's Uplay Application Hints That Watch D...:

Still Day One for me. Every getting their panties over a wad about Watch Dogs is part of the problem. I guess I'm still in the minority of supporting third parties, even if Ubisoft can act like a spoiled brat at times. I just take the high road and focus on getting the best games into my Wii U library.



KillScottKill commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

lol @ anyone picking 64. Take off your nostalgia gogles; that game hasn't aged well at all.

Mine is SMW on SNES because the controls are perfect, the styling is appealing, it isn't too long for a SNES game, and, best of all, it has a save feature unlike its predecessors.

Galaxy 1/Sunshine are close second places. That's when 3D Mario really got good.



KillScottKill commented on Video: The 10 Best Zelda Games As Selected By You:

1. The Legend of Zelda
2. A Link to the Past
3. Twilight Princess
4. Majora's Mask
5. Ocarina of Time
6. Wind Waker
7. The Adventure of Link
8. Skyward Sword that no good piece of garbage

Just home consoles. I also really like Minish Cap and A Link Between Worlds. Link's Awakening is also solid.



KillScottKill commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

1. The original. Not even close. The Legend of Zelda on NES is the consummate video game. Open world, esoteric, imaginative, challenging... It had everything.

2. Link to the Past

3. Twilight Princess (GameCube - the Wii version sucks)

After that, it's all pretty meh. Ocarina of Time is the most overrated game. So many design flaws and filler. Majora's Mask was better IMO, because it brought the same mechanics but wasn't afraid to try some new things and get away from the formula. Wind Waker, especially the HD remake, is gorgeous and has some fun dungeons, but I can't forgive how much of that game is just time wasting on the ocean. For a world so beautiful, it also lacks a lot of personality. I wish a console game in that style existed on the lands of Hyrule. And Skyward Sword... Just, no. Egoraptor nailed why that game is so massively overrated. As uncreative as the New Super Mario Bros. series, but with a terrible control scheme.



KillScottKill commented on Nintendo UK Store's Kirby Hypernova Pack Aims ...:

People who say the 2DS is uncomfortable have clearly never held it before and are solely judging it on appearance. The 2DS is the most ergonomic handheld console I've ever touched before. Say it looks funky all you want, the 2DS is more functional than the 3DS and 3DS XL - especially the original 3DS.



KillScottKill commented on Nintendo 64 Titles Heading to the Wii U Virtua...:

@Dpishere posts like this are so asinine. It really confuses me what is running through people's brains when they try to make this point.

How about this:

The Wii U VC has save states, the Wii VC does not.

The Wii U VC has Gamepad, and thus off screen play. The Wii VC does not.

The Wii VC on Wii U doesn't support GameCube controllers (yet), so you have to play N64 games with the far inferior Classic Controller and Classic Controller Pro. N64 games on the Wii U VC would assuredly support the Pro Controller, which is far more preferable.

For those who don't use credit cards, Nintendo eShop cards are far easier to find than archaic Wii Point cards.

How's that for all the reasons as to why people would prefer N64 games being ported over to the Wii U VC?



KillScottKill commented on Free Copy of Bayonetta Comes as a Separate Dis...:

It is not at all petty to complain about this. The Bayonetta 1 bundled in is part of the selling point of the game. This is no longer Bayonetta 2. It's a package. 1 & 2. That's what it's selling itself as. It's why I pre-ordered it last week.

If there's no physical copy of Bayonetta 1 in included, then I'm cancelling. Period.



KillScottKill commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

Completely believe what he's saying, but I think that 31% number is more telling of the 360 owners who flipped - that's where Sony is really stealing customers, at least in the U.S. and U.K.. Microsoft's blunders with the XB1 in 2013 created a lot of ill-will and a lot of gamers eager to jump into the new gen opted for the PS4, indicated by its much stronger sales point than its direct competitor.

Another thing to keep in mind is just how many people had the Wii as a secondary console to their PS3 or 360 in the last gen due to the much different experience it offered and the fact it was so practical and affordable. It's only natural that consumers who fit into that mold would contribute to this kind of statistic. The question is, will these same people someday own or Wii U along side their PS4 or XB1?

Really, the Wii's massive install base has evaporated. A large part of that is families who don't own a single of the three new consoles, because they've found other things to use their time with. Mobile gaming is a much sturdier alternative now than it was at the start of the last gen, so a lot of the casual gamers that were sucked into the "Wii factor" and the allure that Wii Sports caused are now twiddling their thumbs on smartphones, hence the yearly explosion of things like Angry Birds, Temple Run, and Flappy Bird.

I also think what you're seeing in the fallout of the Wii's success is that generation's children growing up and breaking out of family gaming. I suspect there's a large abundance of middle and high school teenagers that upgraded from the Wii with family to the 3DS by themselves, as shown by the massive popularity of that console.



KillScottKill commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-Aime Reaffirms Nintendo's...:

@Hotfusion this is an excellent point. I haven't seen too much about Gamepad failure, but you can't help but wonder if it ever becomes an issue someday with the oldest Wii U's that were shipped at or near launch. Sometimes consoles just fail and you have to replace - ask the countless 360 owners from the last generation. The Wii U setup basically doubles the odds of massive replace/repair costs because you have two things that can fail; the console itself and the Gamepad. Luckily Nintendo has a good track record with this sort of thing, but double the odds is still double the odds.



KillScottKill commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-Aime Reaffirms Nintendo's...:

The Gamepad is hit and miss. As a piece of hardware, it needs a lot of improvement. It's range of function when offscreen is terrible and they need to start prepackaging the strongest battery available for new Wii U's.

In terms of gameplay, it all depends on the game. I didn't mind using it at all for SM3DW and WWHD. Then there's stuff that insists on using it in funky, unnatural ways like Nintendoland. It works fine as a second screen, a mini-map, a quick menu to edit inventory etc., but please, for the love of God to Nintendo and all developers, do NOT make me hold that thing up to the TV to where I HAVE to look at both screens at once to play your game.



KillScottKill commented on E3 2014: Devil's Third Confirmed As Wii U Excl...:

I get it. People are excited that there's an M-rated exclusive coming to Wii U.

Really though, the gameplay looks clunky and the graphics are way behind. Hopefully this gets a lot of fine tuning before it hits shelves. I'd hate to see a key exclusive get slaughtered in reviews.



KillScottKill commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for E3 2014:

Zelda U - what the Wii U needs more than anything

New Metroid made by Retro - what I realistically want, but may not happen

Nintendo and Capcom teaming on a new Mega Man game - what I want more than anything on Earth, but will never, ever happen



KillScottKill commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Summe...:

Haven't played Mario Kart 8 yet, but I just bought it off eBay.

The best game I've played on Wii U so far is Assassin's Creed IV, no joke. I loved being able to enjoy one of my favorite franchises on a Nintendo console (AC3 doesn't count, as it was a clone of the PS3/360 versions).

SM3DW is a close second. Great game.



KillScottKill commented on Review: Castlevania II: Simon's Quest (Wii U e...:

Simon's Quest is such an interesting game. At face value, it's a pretty bad game. Without the title "Castlevania" it would be lost in the NES library. Yet oddly enough, it has a unique charm about it despite being the black sheep of the franchise. Something about hearing "Bloody Tears" and "The Monster Dance" while walking around aimlessly in this game makes me happy.
