An Artistic Gamer

Male, 19, United States

I'm a pretty good artist. I like playing video games... I hope I can be part of a game designing studio when I'm older and educated. And I love Nintendo.

kyuubikid213 commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

"Hardly Surprising"??


Call of Duty came out on the Wii and DS alongside each PS3, 360, and PC release. While the 3DS got no such love, the Wii U got both Black Ops II and Ghosts.

I'm shocked to see Advanced Warfare won't come to the Wii U simply because Activision took the effort last generation to port the game to the Wii which was vastly underpowered, had awkward online, and used Wii pointer controls until the Classic Controller was finally supported and the DS which was a different beast entirely.

After knocking the DS and Wii out of their Call of Duty release platforms, I thought the Wii U would still be supported if, at the very least, DLC maps and such weren't included.

I'm upset now. Truly sad.



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

Sexualized? A bit, yeah, I suppose. It's not like it's the sole focus of the game or like Samus is jumping in the next DOA Volleyball game.

Is it an issue? Not in the slightest. She's got to wear something under her Varia suit and I don't really see her in anything besides the Zero Suit, no matter what iteration of it they use.

I think Samus, Zero Suit or not, is still a strong female character in games that's respected for her incredible feats and general "pro-skills". I don't think there are many people who turn on a Metroid title for the skin-tight Zero Suit. It's not what the early Tomb Raider games were and it's not what Dead or Alive is.



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

I'll say NO to the subscription service, thank you.

I just think Nintendo should bundle games together as package deals and/or lower the prices to some VC games.

Most of all though, there just needs to be more games on the VC. More games means more money.



kyuubikid213 commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:

Assassin's Creed III was my first Wii U game. I loved it. I thought it was great. Then, after I beat the game for some reason, the bugs and glitches became more prominent.

I get the feeling Ubisoft tried harder with Black Flag, but it doesn't look as polished as ACIII.



kyuubikid213 commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

If there are any more remakes on the Wii U, I would like for Nintendo to remake games from the GCN back.

We can play Wii games already, so the Wii remakes would only turn the gaming media to rain (more) fire down on the Wii U for not having any games worth upgrading for whereas the One and PS4 are LITERALLY following that path.

I just think it'd be interesting to see the original Zelda remade or even 3D sequel/remakes to SNES classics. I want a remake to truly show how far gaming has come since the last outing the game had as opposed to showing how we can now add a few lighting effects or pretty up the polygons a little more.

I really hope Nintendo's next console is backwards compatible to the Wii U...



kyuubikid213 commented on You Won't Be Able To Cross Swords Online In Hy...:

I love how everyone's telling Nintendo to get with online when Mario Kart 8 has online features. Y'know, it's like people need to complain about something to go on living. You'd think they just announced no multiplayer at all for future Smash Bros. titles with the way they're acting.

To be perfectly honest, if this game is anything like any Dynasty Warriors/Samurai Warriors game, having online multiplayer would only lock you into playing one game for over an hour. Those fights last a LONG time.



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

I don't get why you guys are attacking @DefHalan for defending The Letter. I bought into it because it looked like a dumb game that I would have gotten my $2 worth out of. It's not like it could get any worse with the updates and DLC (which are free, by the way) and it's not like it's a waste of time either.

I understand that it probably shouldn't have been released in the state it was, but on the other hand, this was a failed IndieGoGo campaign that used what money it got to go ahead and put the game out. It's not like they released this and are charging $15 for it. It's also not like Treefall Studios is some big headed developer that thinks they made the greatest game since Super Mario. He knows he made a game that people are playing because of it's reputation. It's bad. It's awful. It's a damn mess, but people are buying it. People are hating it and enjoying it.

I don't want the eShop to change. As it's been noted earlier, we can look up reviews if we are on the fence about buying a game. There are even reviews on the eShop (basic, but still reviews) so you don't even need to go "online". If you let everything in, that's fine. The gamers will decide what's good and what's garbage. Developers that put time and effort into their game may strike a chord no one thought they wanted struck. Developers that release absolute garbage will simply fail.



kyuubikid213 commented on Latest Wii U System Update Allows Console To C...:

Okay. Well, if my Wii U ever starts acting up on me, I'll be sure to use this feature. Otherwise, I'll just buy a HDD for my Basic Wii U.

I don't download too much digitally, so I haven't had any trouble with my storage space... and I've got a 16GB Flash Drive in there that's able to hold small downloads like The Letter, Update Data for Assassin's Creed, and Trine 2.



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Be Promoting Th...:

I don't think buying the Wii U as a tablet device is the way Nintendo wants the system to go. If that were the case, it would be able to go much farther away from the console (and probably BE the console itself).

Also, if Nintendo ever gets around to selling GamePads separately, we're back on square one with confused buyers. Many moms will buy the GamePad for their kids thinking it IS the Wii U and come home only to see the "Sync to your Wii U" screen and nothing else.

Nintendo should keep pushing what they've been pushing and showing how it works. I played Assassin's Creed III on my Wii U and now when I play on my 360, I'm constantly looking down at my hands to look at a larger "mini" map, quick menu options, and longing for Off-TV play.



kyuubikid213 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

@KillScottKill I respect Egoraptor's opinion, but I think he was super biased against Ocarina. Also, he complained about not knowing where to go in the open-ended Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, so I don't know why knowing where to go in Ocarina is a bad thing in his eyes. You can still explore. Sure, there are obstacles you can't overcome until you get a certain item, but at least the world is still open to you. And there are plenty of secrets, too. If you explore the world because you don't feel the need to go wherever Navi, Impa, Zelda, or Sheik tells you to, you will find secrets you can come back to.

To those who don't know, Egoraptor has a Sequelitis series where he compares two games from the same series and gives his own personal comments and opinions toward what the newer games did right or wrong. His most recent one is a 30 minute video where he details why he finds Ocarina of Time to be overhyped (and as a side note, Skyward Sword). He does however contradict his standpoint from past Sequelitis episodes several times in his LttP/OoT video. Another example is how he rags on Skyward Sword for not bringing anything new EVEN THOUGH the game is built around the Motion Plus controls and the 1:1 sword control (unlike Super Castlevania IV and Simon's new whip abilities).



kyuubikid213 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I love each and every one of the Zelda games, but I have to give my vote to Ocarina of Time (3D) simply because it's the only one out of the ones I own that I've gone back and played again... I'm on my fourth playthrough of Ocarina of Time 3D now and I still love it just as much as I did when I bought it.

Twilight Princess is amazing, Skyward Sword is marvelous, Link's Awakening DX has a charm I rarely see in video games, Wind Waker HD is just incredible, The Legend of Zelda stands up very well for a 30 year old game, Zelda II is...different, but alright, Phantom Hourglass was an incredible experience, Link to the Past is absolutely wonderful, Link Between Worlds is interesting, Four Swords Anniversary is the best time waster I've ever played (though sadly never with friends), and Majora's Mask has an atmosphere that stays with me long after playing.

The Legend of Zelda series in general lives up to it's name. It's a legend amongst games. Even the "worst" of the Zelda games is still a brilliant GAME.



kyuubikid213 commented on Nintendo Files Patent for "Eye Tracking" Devic...:

If this were to work...and work well, I'd probably buy it. Having that much more immersion in a game would be pretty great.

On the other hand, I don't want to have to run out and buy scents for every game I own and I don't want to clutter my entertainment center with fans and such. It's a neat idea, but I think it would need some more time. (I haven't read the entire patent.)

I see this as a proper first step to Virtual Reality, though. Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus look cool, but it's just a gyro sensor attatched to small screens placed in front of your eyes. That's not so much Virtual Reality as it is a Virtual Boy with color and a gyro sensor.



kyuubikid213 commented on Video: Curve's Jonathan Biddle Takes Us Throug...:

I enjoy steath games. I haven't played many serious console ones, but I enjoy them (and stealth elements in other games) nonetheless. When I was younger, stealth WAS horror. Heheh.

I'll keep my eye on this one...

Boy, with all of the game announcements lately, I kind of wish I could win the lottery... That way, I could get what I needed with my newly won dosh and throw all of my paychecks at these upcoming games.



kyuubikid213 commented on Video: Hands-On With Captain Toad: Treasure Tr...:

Just watched about half of it...and I'm impressed.

It definitely looks like there's a lot more than just more Captain Toad stages (which to be honest would be worth the asking price if there were enough of them).

Personally, whatever engine they used for SM3DW (and now Captain Toad) is a great one and I hope it gets used more. It looks absolutely stunning in even 720p!



kyuubikid213 commented on Video: Hands-On With Captain Toad: Treasure Tr...:

I'm interested in this game because I found the Captain Toad levels quite interesting in SM3DW.

I don't doubt it'll be worth the asking price, but I think I'll watch the video now to see how they expanded on those intriguing little mini stages.



kyuubikid213 commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

If I had to choose between a smartphone/tablet or a dedicated handheld gaming console, I'd choose the handheld.

There's nothing wrong with tablets, but when it comes to gaming, I'd choose the original Game Boy over one any day. The buttons are the biggest issue as multiple times gaming on tablets/phones the touchscreen has either not registered my touches and swipes or done the opposite of what I intended.

Also, games on dedicated devices have more depth. Fact. Games on phones and tablets are getting close, but on a system made purely for a gaming experience, there's so much more that can be (and usually is) offered. I know about games like Clash of Clans and I know about games that try to emulate home console experiences, but (not going to knock Clash of Clans because I haven't played it) they're just uncomfortable to play without a controller input. I know there are controllers supported now, but I'm going to call you crazy if you'd rather get a tablet and a controller for it as well as a stand to rest your tablet on just to play games you could have gotten far easier on a console.

I just... To show you where I'm coming from, I have 2048. Got it for free on my phone. Play it a bit. Have fun with it. I heard it came to the 3DS eShop and I'm seriously considering the purchase. I just prefer gaming on dedicated consoles that much.

I've also tried to play games similar to my other DS/3DS experiences like RPGs and such, but they were so difficult to control that I couldn't deal with it. And I didn't care.



kyuubikid213 commented on Miiverse Update Adds Post Embed Option, Activi...:

@Tsuzura I personally only want 1.

2 isn't really an issue to me because, well, the GamePad comes with the system...and it's actually a lot easier to navigate the eShop with the GamePad than it would be without it. It's not...necessary, for lack of a better word.

As for 3, customizable Miis could be cool, but at the same time, Miis aren't really used for much where their customizations would mean anything. The Avatars you make on the 360 have customizability, but I really don't care about it and often forget he's there. At least the Miis show up as your icon where necessary and flood your startup every time you turn on the Wii U.



kyuubikid213 commented on Review: 2048 (3DS eShop):

Dunno. I have it on my phone, but my phone can't hold much stuff on it. Getting it on the 3DS would free up space... And I have my phone and 3DS on me at all times anyway. It's also not like $2 is obscene. They added 3D graphics and it won't be piled with ads. Seems like a fair enough tradeoff.

I might not get it now, but sometime in the future...perhaps.



kyuubikid213 commented on Nintendo Looking To Grow Wii U Audience To Tem...:

@Peach64 I'd agree with you...except I'm pretty sure if the Wii U doesn't have enough sales for the third parties, neither will the PS4 or One. There are 160 million potential buyers on PS3 and 360... I don't think third parties will let those go so can be seen with Watch_Dogs, Wolfenstein, Destiny, Dark Souls II, Call of Duty, Mortal Kombat X, Shadow of Mordor, and Dragon Age Inquisition.

On the other hand, though, it's not like the games that will be released on the Wii U without third parties will be bad. I have a lot of fun with Nintendo Land, Lego City, Super Mario 3D World, and Wind Waker.



kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Successfully Wooed Som...:

In regards to Mahe...

As for Nintendo wooing Wii U doubters, I hope third parties come back with the buzz generated by this E3 and (hopefully) the coming years. I despise playing games on my 360 now because there's no GamePad support.



kyuubikid213 commented on Mario Kart 8 Claims Top Spot in Japanese Chart...:

While everyone seems to be stuck on the Wii U only doing 12,000 units this past week, remember it was down in the 7,000 range before Mario Kart hit and the numbers have stayed up where they are. The Wii U has a little momentum now. More stellar games will only help from here on out.

I don't care if the Wii U is first or last this generation, as long as excellent game after excellent game keep coming out, Nintendo's got my support.



kyuubikid213 commented on Nintendo Needs To Cut Wii U Cost To Capitalise...:

Let's just... remind you of your contribution to "poor" Wii U sales, Ubisoft...

You took away Rayman Legends exclusivity. That could have sold more systems to your Rayman fanbase. You took away offline multiplayer for Splinter Cell Blacklist. Cutting features on one version of the game will lead people to buy other, non-gimped versions. THAT could have sold more Wii Us. Assassin's Creed IV didn't get DLC. While I personally don't care, that could have even moved some units. Now, you've delayed Watch Dogs for nearly half a year after the release of every other version. By the time it comes to Wii U, people with multiple options will be able to get essentially the same game for half the price. Even then, word of mouth will have spread and other games will be on the horizon that gamers want potentially MORE than Watch Dogs. Releasing it on time, even alongside Mario Kart (maybe even especially) could have shifted units.

And on top of those four big release muck-ups, you have another game that you won't release until you see fit? What kind of nonsense is that? Are you going to actually release it? Or are you making the PS4, One, 360, PS3, and PC versions first?

A price drop is not what the Wii U needs. Dropping the GamePad is not what the Wii U needs. If anything, Mario Kart 8 proved that the Wii U needs heavy hitters to start shifting units. The games shown at E3 could be those games.

I'll continue to support you for now because you have made quality experiences on the Wii U in ZombiU, Assassin's Creed, and Child of Light (games I own), but if this continues, I may choose to not buy a Ubisoft game new or digital again. Why bother if I'll just get shafted?

  • A photo & video editing channel

A photo and video editing channel would be cool, but personally, I don't see why it'd be necessary on any console... It was a nice distraction on the Wii, but other than that, it didn't see much use.

  • Wii games load straight from Wii U menu without having to go into Wii mode first


  • Folders

Folders aren't an issue for me and they weren't an issue before they released them on the 3DS, but I can understand why people want them. I use them because it takes less time to organize, but again, it didn't bug me before they were a thing.

  • post to miiverse straight from the home screen without having to go to the miiverse site first

I don't understand this... A lot of Nintendo's titles allow this. Also, I wouldn't want a gimped Miiverse just to make a post. When I go on Miiverse, I look at other posts as well as write my own.

  • In-game notifications

I don't mind the Home Button flashing. I miss it when I'm in the zone, but at the same time, people can't pester me constantly with notifications. On top of that, it'd likely have Miiverse integration and popular artists' games would be interrupted by endless Yeah! Bombing.

  • chat and photo channel in the home menu so that you don't have to quit your current game to use them

By chat, I assume you mean the Wii U Chat. I also assume you mean for them to update it to accomodate IM as well as Party Chat because suspending a game to do a video chat is not my cup of tea. And again, I don't see the need for a photo channel on the Wii U.

  • VC Suspend points 'in the cloud' and shareable between Wii U and 3DS versions

Partially agreed. I don't want a ton of stuff in the Cloud, but there'd be no other way to sync it, I suppose.

  • TVii in Europe


  • Wii VC games

No. The Wii U is backwards compatible to the Wii. Just buy your Wii games and slap 'em in. Gamecube VC is more like it, but on the other hand, GameCube HD remakes could be cool. I love Wind Waker HD. And, while I still have my Wii, I'd gladly buy an HD remake of a GCN game if it had more features (which is a guarantee thanks to the GamePad and Miiverse).

  • Disc install

Eh. To be honest, I don't want this one. I understand games like Lego City would load faster or something, but on the same token, I'd have to give up memory so I could actually install it. As much space as the Wii U discs hold, that wouldn't be something I'd want implemented. I want Nintendo to keep making their games work smoothly without the need for a disc install.



kyuubikid213 commented on Eiji Aonuma Plans To Shake Up the Puzzle Formu...:

I love the puzzles in Zelda games. I've never once thought "Oh that was a waste of time" or "Why is this even here?!" I've found them interesting at every turn and I always feel satisfied when I hear that tone go off after solving a particularly difficult one.

That being said, if Aonuma is thinking of shaking that up for the better, I'm all for it. Just so long as Zelda U isn't as boring as Skyrim can get (I'm sorry, but it's really boring to me...), I'm all for it.



kyuubikid213 commented on FIFA 15 Is Lacing Its Boots For A Wii And 3DS ...:

Um... what?

Why not on the Wii U? If you like motion controls that much, EA, you can implement them on the Wii U...

Heck, you don't even have to do that much. Just mirror the TV and GamePad screens and port over the 360 version. Easy money.

Or put as much effort into it as you did Mass Effect 3: Special Edition.

I dunno. I wouldn't buy FIFA anyway because sports games aren't my thing, but come on, EA. You can't use this to say "We're supporting Nintendo, but no one's buying!"



kyuubikid213 commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Won't Bring Live Twitch Stre...:

For those of you that want to record your game footage to upload to the web, buy the appropriate hardware to do so.

Personally, my gaming console should be able to play games. If it can do that well, then I'm satisfied. Everything else is just icing on the cake. I've watched more than a few Let's Plays, but in the end I just wanted to play the game or play one myself.

Whether or not the Wii U can handle streaming doesn't matter to me...and as someone here said, all you have to do is look at the Miiverse community to get an idea of what kind of Wii U streams people would see.

No Twitch isn't a bother for me.
