LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Video: Mario Kart DS Skids Onto Wii U Virtual ...:

I will be skipping this. I have the DS card so this is useless to me, especially with the lack of multiplayer. If they worked hard enough, they could have implemented multiplayer somehow.

On another note, this means that the only Mario Kart games not playable on Wii U are Mario Kart: Double Dash!! (not excusable, add GCN games already) and Mario Kart 7 (extremely understandable).



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Review: Animal Crossing (GameCube):

I disagree with the review score. I honestly find this the second easiest Animal Crossing game to come back to (don't have much of a motive to play Wild World anymore and my City Folk disc does not work) because of a lot of its unique features and charm. New Leaf is my favorite and most-played Animal Crossing game but I still love this one a lot.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Growth of Wii U Sales ...:

Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U definitely helped sales, but the Wii U is probably going to be another GameCube (sales-wise). The Wii U will probably sell 5 million worldwide in 2015 and have a lifetime sales figure of 20-25 million units.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

Nintendo handhelds have always been quite special to me.
After my family got a Gamecube for Christmas 2003, I got a Game Boy Advance a few days later. It may have run on batteries and had a dim screen, but I loved it. For Christmas 2008, I got a used Game Boy Advance SP and fell in love with that little guy too.
I got a DSi for Christmas 2009 and quickly made use of it. No longer would I have to borrow my younger brother's DS Lite.
Then in 2011, I got the 3DS the day it launched. I have put well over a thousand hours into the system (I think it is around 1700 hours). Unfortunately, I wasn't smart with the protective case I bought, so the system has scuffs that will likely be there forever. I love my 3DS, and will keep it as long as it is in one piece.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Poll: Nintendo's Year of Multiplayer Gaming on...:

I'm not that hyped for any of these games, to be honest. Yoshi's Wooly World looks really cool and Mario Party 10 should be fun. However, these are not Mario Kart or Super Smash Bros. Maybe I will give Splatoon a chance, but at the moment, it does not catch my interest.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

My wishlist
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn - This game is so expensive on eBay, it is ridiculous. I never have played this one, but I want to.
WarioWare: Smooth Moves - I would love to play this game.
Mario Party 9 - I never owned this game but it is fun and I would snag it up in a heartbeat for $10.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl - I would like to be able to play it on the Wii U using the Gamepad.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Mario Kart: Double Dash!! is still the top Mario Kart game to me. It may not have as many options as the later games but I feel the only thing weighing the game down is that there are only 16 tracks. Mostly everything else (Battle Mode, Karts, Items, Courses) is top notch.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Developer Profile: Masahiro Sakurai:

@SylveonLover It could have 2 newcomers+Brawl's roster and be the best roster in the series. I meant that the newcomers in Super Smash Bros. 4 are very sketchy choices. They may all play wonderful. Until then, I am crushed with the newcomer selectiion. Such a letdown.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

@Action51 I was merely stating my opinion. I was underwhelmed. There is nothing wrong with being open minded. I like Nintendo a lot, but I am not blind. They still have a long way to go.
Just because a lot of Nintendo followers liked E3 2014 doesn't mean I have to. The only things that piqued my interest were Super Smash Bros. 4 and The Legend of Zelda and even those were underwhelming.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Wii U Finally Hits One Million Sales in Japan:

Well, some good news. The Wii U will take off in 2014 because of Super Smash Bros. 4 and Mario Kart 8.

Many people might buy it this holiday season to prepare for those games and enjoy some of the games already available by the end of 2013 (Nintendo Land, Super Mario 3D World, Pikmin 3, Donkey Kong Country : Tropical Freeze).



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Pikmin 3 Shifts Slightly More Copies Than The ...:

Not shabby. However, due to this only being the third Pikmin game, it would take some extremely aggressive marketing and fantastic word of mouth to make this game move consoles.

I think the Wii U could do fine this holiday. A price cut could definitely help. Why should a general consumer buy a Wii U for $300 or $350 when they can get a Playstation 4 for $400?

Personally, I think the Wii U will start to take off in 2014, as Super Smash Bros. and Mario Kart move consoles extremely well.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Investor Approval Rating For Satoru Iwata Drop...:

I think Iwata has done some good with Nintendo, but he has done a lot of damage as well (the past 2 years and now).
It is time for him to ousted as head of Nintendo and bring in a new leader. A leader who can learn from Nintendo's past mistakes and (when the time comes) make a 9th generation system that is as powerful as its competitors.
Let's face it, the Wii was mostly a 6th generation system graphically and the Wii U has seventh-gen graphics.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Sakurai: Dual Analogue Control in Kid Icarus: ...:

I disagree with Sakurai so much. I have played Super Smash Bros. and the controls work great (granted I am using a GCN controller on VC).

The only thing I would imagine being a problem playing on the N64 would be the analog stick in the middle, though that was the problem with every N64 game.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Impressions: Multiplayer is a Big Deal in Nint...:

@MatthewRPG The truest words ever spoken. Nintendo is so out of touch with the gaming industry. Online co-op is not something risky or new, it should be common place by now. The only Nintendo system with anything worth playing right now is the 3DS. The DS and Wii are just about dead, and the Wii U is in a hole.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Nintendo Defends Influx of New Mario Titles:

Yes there is way too many main series Mario games. New Super Mario Bros. 2 should not exist (though I really enjoyed it) and only one Mario game should have been on Wii U so far (either New Super Mario Bros. U or Super Mario 3D World not both). I think Nintendo should release a Galaxy-esque PROPER 3D Mario platformer in 2014 for the Wii U and then have no Mario platformers at all in 2015.



LuigiTheGreenFire commented on Nintendo - "Innovation is Important" for the 2...:

4 New Super Mario games are far too many. I was fine with the DS and Wii iterations (they were the first 2D Mario games in a long time), but it's gotten old.

Take risks, Nintendo. Have new villians (or some new sidevillains), have different worlds (Remember SMB2 and the Super Mario Land games).

Nintendo is just too scared to take risks because they have had a rough financial time as of late. If the 3D Mario game for the Wii U is Super Mario Galaxy 3, I am going to scream.
