MaverickHunterX commented on Sega Producer Explains Exactly What Went Wron...:

This is what you do to fix Sonic:
1. Take the gameplay from Sonic Unleash's -Daytime Stages-,
2. And the world hub from Sonic Adventure 1.

That's it.

No "Colors"-esque power ups, no Werehog, no anti-gravity, no laser-tethers, no team-up attacks. Anything other than the two things I mentioned above, burn it, and fire anyone at Sega who thinks otherwise.



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: The Limited Edition Battle With...:

I'm all for having a "REAL" preorder system in place, i.e. opening preorders months ahead of release and them actually producing enough to fulfill those preorders.

And Nintendo needs to allow people to order stuff directly from their website, and some preorders need to locked out to people who don't have a registered a current-gen Nintendo console and/or an active NN account.

Doing that should eliminated a lot of the scalpers.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (North America):

Bought the PS3 version of One Piece Unlimited World RED 'cuz there was a physical version on that platform, it should here by tomorrow.

Other than that, I'm still playing the hell out of Mario Kart 8 online, and catching up on the new summer anime.



MaverickHunterX commented on Video: Midna's Unique Fighting Style Brings Ex...:

Ah Midna, quite possibly Link's best companion.....ah screw it, she IS his best companion. Link will never have another one as compelling as her.

Definitely looking forward to using her in Hyrule Warriors. Now if only she could be added to SSBU/3DS.



MaverickHunterX commented on Capcom Could Be Up For Sale After Shareholders...:

My ideal situation:
Nintendo gets MegaMan, Monster Hunter, Pheonix Wright
Platinum Games gets back Resident Evil, Strider, and Devil May Cry
Suda51/Grasshopper Studios get Viewtiful Joe and Okami
Arc System Works gets Street Fighter
Bandai-Namco gets Breath of Fire and Dragon's Dogma



MaverickHunterX commented on Mario Kart Month: Expanding the Universe of Ma...:


^^This guy, he gets it.
It's probably the best explanation on why a "Nintendo Kart" game simply would not work thematically.

And those of you that keep bringing up Sonic All-Star Racing, it didn't work there either. Hell, the whole game is based around "Sonic driving a car".

Yeah, the guy who RUNS fast enough to break the sound barrier, driving a car. That concept was broken from the get-go.



MaverickHunterX commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

Never cared much for Battle Mode.
In my opinion, it always seemed half-baked, boring, and a completely unnecessary.

And if that's the biggest flaw in this game, then MK8 is looking more like a 10/10 for me.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Direct: Special Mario Kart 8 Direct S...:

Ugh, and another 30 days to go......
Would it kill them to bump up the release date just a little bit, like the 16th or something.

Now about the new characters: I'm fine with Baby Rosalina, but not Pink Gold Peach. That's just a lazy reskin, just like Metal Mario.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

I really prefer this approach the best, because it's the fastest, most direct way to get the information you want. Especially for those of us who really just want to get straight to the point: the games.

Don't care about the financial reports or market strategies or stage actors pretending to have "fun". I just want to see the games. Give me a new trailer and a release date, and I'm set.



MaverickHunterX commented on Wii U and 3DS Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 13...:

It's about damn time!
This may the first ND I get to watch while I'm not at work.

For this ND, I'm expecting a reiteration of MK8's release date, more info on Smash Bros, Kirby Triple Deluxe, Mario Golf, maybe another trailer for DKC:TF, and Yoshi's New Island...that's about it.

Just like a few of the others on this site, I'm keeping my expectations low.
Though, I do hope for a few surprises.



MaverickHunterX commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Satoru Iwata's Nintendo...:

In my opinion, Mario Kart 8 definitely NEEDS to be out earlier, like either March or April. I agree with what Williaint said--as good as DKC:TR will be it's NOT Mario Kart. Mario Kart is more or less Nintendo's Call of Duty, that game just moves consoles. Hell, MKWii is STILL moving Wiis after all this time.

Now Smash Bros U/3DS, that should be released in May. Yarn Yoshi, Monolithsoft's X, Bayonetta 2, and Hyrule Warriors need to be out this year.

And while it is interesting that Nintendo has decided to release DS titles on the WiiU Virtual Console, they SHOULD really be releasing N64 & Gamecube titles on it. And maybe a few popular JP console & arcade titles that never made it west.

And while they're at, how about fortifying the Nintendo Network for the imminent arrival of MK8 & SSBU/3DS. Remember how the Pokemon Bank crippled the 3DS network in Japan for a month? Imagine that mess x30.



MaverickHunterX commented on Feature: Nintendo Games Our Readers Would Love...:

What I want to see on the WiiU in 2014?
Though HIGHLY unlikely, I'd like to see "X", Yarn Yoshi and Fire Emblem X SMT get released this year. But one could dream.

And maybe, just maybe during some ND this year we'll actually see a trailer for Zelda U, or Nintendo could let Platinum Games have a crack at Metroid. Why? One word. Vanquish.

Vanquish's gameplay + Metroid-style exploration = WIN.



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: Claims of Wii U Third-Party Dev...:

@ boynerdrambling I completely agree.

I've been saying this for a while, but it's ALL up to Nintendo to make the WiiU successful. Which is more or less what they had to do with the 3DS over the past 2 years.

Until Nintendo is able/willing to release a console that's relatively on par with "current" PC specs, OR the rest of game industry collapses under it's current model, we've never gonna see any prominent 3rd party presence on a Nintendo console.



MaverickHunterX commented on Nintendo Direct Focusing On Wii U And 3DS Game...:

My guess would be:

Jan- WiiU Fit & WiiU Sports Club(retail)
Feb- DKC:Tropical Freeze & Bravely Default
Mar- Mario Kart 8 & Mario Golf 3DS
Apr- Bayonetta 2 & Kirby:Triple Deluxe
May- Monolithsoft's X & Yoshi's Island 3DS.

Some SMT X Fire Emblem would be nice, but I doubt that.
We'll see tomorrow.



MaverickHunterX commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

What do I think of the "New-Gen" environment?
Well, seeing how neither the PS4 or the XBone have any worthwhile launch titles, and the rampant reports of buggy PS4 consoles......ehhhhh, I'll wait.

In the meantime, I'll be playing my WiiU, 3DS, and PS3.



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Safe and Family-Frie...:

Don't really care about SwapNote to be honest, the last time I used the app was when it initially launched, then I quickly forgot about it.

Only remembered that this was a thing due to this "incident."

Besides, I use my 3DS to play games, not to text or send poorly drawn doodles to my friends. I have several other devices that do those things already, and do it better .



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: The Steam Gaming Machines Are A...:

The Steambox seems kinda pointless.

From what I understand, it's a just console that can play PC games on the TV. Can't PCs and laptops do that already?

I mean that's what the HDMI output on latops and PC inputs on HDTVs are for. Sooooo, what's the point?

Instead of pissing away money on this, Valve should have been working on Half-Life 3.



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: Marketing Wii U to the Masses:

What people keep forgetting is that Nintendo doesn't advertise unless there's a BIG upcoming title they want to promote, and they usually advertise it two weeks before and after the game's release.

The only 3DS commercials on TV(this year) were Fire Emblem, Luigi's Mansion, and Mario & Luigi: Dream Team. And the only WiiU game they've advertised thus far has been Pikmin 3.

Give them another week or two and I guarantee you'll start seeing commercials for the Wind Waker HD deluxe bundle/price drop on Cartoon Network/Boomerrang, Nicktoons, and DisneyXD/HD/Jr.



MaverickHunterX commented on 3DS Hardware Sales Continue to Rise in Japan, ...:

I love how all the doomsayers said the same thing about Ocarina of Time 3D for the 3DS, funny how that turned out.

But seriously, the one thing all you doomsayers fail to realize EVERY console generation is that you never count Nintendo out.

That being said: I don't expect that big of a boost from WindWakerHD, but it and the price drop will at least get the ball rolling.

And they'll continue to gain momentum as Sonic Lost World follows after WWHD, then SM3DWorld, then DKC Tropical Freeze, no strong AAA exclusives from either the PS4 or the Xbone this holiday(and no PS4 launch in Japan til Feb' 14), the WiiU will definitely be in a better position than it is now.



MaverickHunterX commented on Talking Point: Gamescom Announcements Raise th...:

Raises the stakes? Not by much IMO.
A $50 price drop for the Vita, no compelling AAA exclusives at launch, and multi-platform ports of current-gen games. I see absolutely no reason to pick up a PS4(or a X-Bone) at the moment.

I'll pick one up when FFXV, KHIII, and MGSV drops, til then I'll have a ton of WiiU, 3DS and PS3 games to work my way through.
