Light commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

I do not care much about using the gamecube controller for smash as i believe the pro controller will be perfect for smash. Like many others have pointed out here, this would have been perfect for wii vc. The only answer now is for nintendo to hurry up and port all of the n64 vc games to wii u so that we can finally use the pro controller for them. Then RIP gamecube controller. Wired controllers in this day and age, really?

Light commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

I was considering getting this as it would have been useful to use my existing gamecube controllers for the wii vc mode. From day one, nintendo has been making it too expensive when it comes to controller options. The wii u pro controller is a wonderful controller, but has no support in wii u vc mode. Since i refuse to purchase classic controllers, this would have been perfect to allow me ot use my old gamecube controllers in wii vc mode. Without that, this purchase is a waste of money. The wii u pro controller is better in layout and it's wireless, which is a huge plus in this day and age. My last wii was ko'ed by some child running accross the gamecube controller wires and throwing it to the floor. Therefore, RIP gamecube controllers, i welcome the pro controller and already have 2 of them, and they have been awesome to play with. I will wait on nintendo to bring my exisiting vc games to wii u.

I live in a small third world country where we will never have such events. Nintendo should consider releasing some of the demos, e.g. smash wii u, out on the wiiu eshop for people like us, even if it is just for a limited time. That would give them even more exposure.

Light commented on Reaction: Picking Apart The New Nintendo 3DS A...:

From day one, the 3ds should have been updated to be used along with the wii u as a tablet controller instead of the "dumb" gamepad that we have now. Having the handheld work along closely with the home console is golden. However, seeing as the wii already has it's own tablet controller and is 2 years into it's life span, this idea may now be too late...

Light commented on Miyamoto States That Nintendo Is Sticking With...:

I have been with nintendo since the original NES. Here are my thoughts: Have enjoyed all of the consoles right up to the Wii U. However, with the Wii, the motion controls are gimmicky, I got tired of them fast and I am VERY glad that i barely have to them with the Wii U. As for the gamepad that came with the Wii U, I believe that it was a very great idea, but unfortunately not enough games utilize it to make it of much value. As for the future of nintendo, i believe the time has come for them to stop making hardware. Most of their games would run well/better on other consoles. Very few of the first party games make great use of the gamepad to make it that valuable. Nintendo will NEVER get the customers that they once had, so my advice to them is to stop fooling themselves and stop making home consoles, perhaps stick with the portable console market and that's it.

Had good fun with MKwii, brawl was a laggy mess, which i abandoned almost immediately. Looking forward to much better online services. If Brawl is not done right this time, it will definitely kill the game much faster. Smash can not survive another localized prison cell like it did last generation.

@kuribo4 Thanks, i stand corrected. 6.17 million according to the link below. I think
http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/05/07/nintendo-announces-another-annual-loss-617-million-wii-u-consoles-sold

According to the link below, mario kart wii has sold about 30 million in lifetime sales, and super mario kart (snes) with about 9 million. I hope the wii u can do the same.

Light commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

Worst selling? Might be true considering that there are only about 3 million wii u consoles owners out there, however, this does not mean that it is a bad game. Battle mode? A matter of opinion. I am not a battle mode person, so this does not impact me at all. Racism? This is hilarious. You can NOT cater to every people group and persuasion out there. Make a game based on your beliefs and run with it. Besides, the objective of the game is to race and have fun, not about representing every people group in the world. This is ludicrous. Overall, highly anticipating this game! Will be purchasing online the moment it is released!

I never found battle mode to be that fun in Mario Kart. What would be creative is to not only bring back the arenas, but also have new modes like CTF, maybe some modes involving missions, and also have battle mode specific items which will go well with these new game mode types.

Light commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

now this is what I am talking about nintendo! This should have been a feature of the Wii U from the beginning. The only problem is, it should be both the DS and 3DS games! Regardless, this will help the fledgling console's lack in it game library. Now, please release some media apps like internet radio, and maybe the added capacity to work as a DLNA client and/or play back some bluerays, and then the wii u can actually function as a media center device!

@Rukiafan
While the classic controller pro does look like a better option than the original classic controller, due to trying to spend my funds wisely, i prefer to invest solely in the new wii u pro controllers, since they have a preferable form factor and are wireless.

@faint
correct, i meant in wii mode. wii mode on the wii u will not allow the use of gamecube controllers (of which i have 4 of)

Too many controllers to invest in, so I am picking the ones which i believe are in my best interest, which are the wii u pro controllers.

@Kirk

Exactly. If nintendo would make their consoles more versatile from the beginning, then they would definitely have more of a fighting chance and this is coming from an old school gamer back from nintendo/atari/commodore 64 days. I've enjoyed all of their consoles including the snes, GC, N64, and wii. Now, I currently own a wii u, but it will be my last nintendo gaming console guarenteed. The only games they have left which attract me are Smash Brothers and Mario Kart, but this will probably be my last generation of those games that i play anyway since I am getting older and have more important priorities. So without some more useful features, I no longer see it as being worth the money. It's sad to see nintendo go down this way, but it is inevitable if your business does not change with the times, especially with technology.

Light commented on Nintendo "Confident" in PC Box Anti-Piracy Cas...:

Let me say that i was against modding at first. Yes, most people probably do it to play pirated copies of games. However, my tone has changed since then. My originall wii is soooo much more useful as a modded console! I can play internet radio stations, watch DVD's, and even use it to stream content from a pc in another room. Even now, i'm shocked at how utterly under utilized the wii u hardware is! Such potential, especially with the tablet controller and the upgraded graphics and faster hardware, but sadly nintendo will never fully realize this. Therefore, i will definitely be modding my Wii U when the process matures, especially since i see the console becoming stale extremely fast. It will be the only way to keep it relevant!

Light commented on Soapbox: The Wii U Virtual Console Needs to Fr...:

Here is my take on the VC system:
1. Make the vc games cheaper.
2. Make the wii u pro controller compatible within the wii VC or release the classic controller titles on the wii u. I'm sure there are others like me who have transferred their wii content to the wii u and refuse to buy both wii u pro controllers and wii classic controllers. i would like to buy only the pro controller thank you, since it is the newer one and does not require me plugging into the wiimote. I would get 4 of them so that friends can enjoy the older titles too.

3. Focus on releasing fresh VC content on the wii u. The games that are already released on the wii eshop work just fine, except for those which annoyingly need the classic controller.

4. This last one is not related but is just a dream, allow us to play 3ds games on wii u :) In my opinion this would greatly expand the current wii u library.

I think the greatest invention for them would be to allow 3ds games to play through the wii-u, but of course this is just a dream..... as much as i like zelda, I am not spending money on a portable console again.

I see people asking for mario bros 3, this is already released on the wii eshop and works just find. I would prefer for them to release A Link To the Past (snes) on wii U eshop, because i am not going to buy a classic controller just to play this game or any of the older N64 games. I already have 4 wiimotes/nunchucks and would prefer to invest in the newer wii u pro controller.
