This is a GREAT game at a great price on the eShop! One of the few games that are not 2D on the eShop that are worth a purchase. There's even online play!

McGruber commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Sells Over ...:

Not surprising. I think this will rival and ultimately surpass X/Y for top selling 3DS game of all time. The Wii U version will be successful too, and I think it will help sell systems. It won't save the console though :/

Cool, but I need Nintendo to work on a patch so that screens can be posted to Miiverse from the 3DS version. Come on Nintendo, it's the only game where taking and posting screens to Miiverse actually excites me...

McGruber commented on Standard 3DS Consoles Will Have Limited Online...:

A game like this is pretty much what makes Miiverse awesome. To not be able to post screnshots (if that's the case) is a big disappointment. I want the New 3DS, but it feels like a bunch of Nintendo peripherals thrown into one console. Every one of them will hardly be utilized due to this splitting the market. I'm tired of people making excuses for Nintendo's weak hardware. The only reason they do that is to keep the system considerably cheaper, but they pay the price in the end.

McGruber commented on Mega Man 7 Storms onto North American Wii U eShop:

While I hate Capcom for taking Resident Evil away, I am glad they are putting games on the eShop. They woud be stupid not to really, as many 3rd parties are when it comes to the Virtual Console. There's a lot of old games I want to play

Pretty disappointing. I hope this teaches Nintendo a lesson to stop holding back on the tech inside their consoles. I'd rather pay more for something cutting edge than old tech. The 3DS is a mess lol a successful one

McGruber commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Of the ones listed, Ray's The Dead, Super World Karts, and the Power Glove documentary are the ones I'm most interested in playing. Surprised Super World Karts is such a small amount considering the utter lack of any similar games I can think of...

I hate the name, but I love everything about this system except one thing. It won't have many games made for it, and certainly not the ones I want really. That's the same problem the old 3DS and Wii U have. It's just too little too late to attract 3rd parties, but I'll still get one.

The developer has recently stated on Twitter that the game is 90% finished and will release at the end of the year / early 2015

I really enjoyed BO2 on my Wii U. It's one of the few great experiences I have had on the system. Playing zombies with my friend online while having my own screen was awesome. I am gonna pick the game up again soon, I just hope there is still a bunch of people playing online.

McGruber commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

@Galenmereth Everything you said I agree with. It IS offensive. Nintendo acts like they are the makers of V-Smile or Leapfrog. Under 18 is not their ONLY demographic by a long shot. I'm 23 and a lot of my friends own 3DS's. Do we ever use them? Hardly, but that's a different topic...

McGruber commented on Developer Hints At How Minecraft Could Shape U...:

I'm sure Minecraft technically could work on 3DS, but I don't see the developer putting in the effort to downscale it. Clearly no 3rd parties want to develop for the system, even with it's decent install base. I'm really hoping the 3DS successor is announced in the next year. Nintendo needs to start putting out machines that appeal to 3rd parties (which means it appeals to more than children and families). I personally would rather pay more up front for something quality than what we have gotten with the horrible 3DS models.

McGruber commented on Nintendo TVii Update Adds New Features and Imp...:

Don't feel bad if you don't have it! Its a horribly slow app that is only good for the TV guide. This latest update is not an improvement either. All they did was take away half the features to make it load faster?? You can no longer search for shows by whether they have TVTag, which was the only good feature to begin with. I also can't seem to switch from MLB to any other sport. Honestly just download the TV Tag App on your phone. It does everything NTV does, and much faster.

McGruber commented on Ubisoft Makes Little Mention of Nintendo in Pl...:

Nintendo put out a system that only appeals to longtime Nintendo fans and familys. Those two groups do not buy 3rd party games historically, especially not mature themed games. The part that still gets me is how naive Nintendo was in thinking WiiU ever appealed to gamers. In order to do that they needed to offer everything gamers love about 360/PS3: great online, achievements, social features, and GAMES. They had the nerve to act like 3rd parties would flourish on WiiU given everything going against that notion. Iwata should step down for being so out of touch with reality.

McGruber commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

The game would never have sold well primarily because of Nintendos failures with WiiU from the very start. That said, this is one of the very best games on the system AND it has WiiU specific features and actually looks BETTER than 360. So yea Nintendo could and should have supported it through email ads, Nintendo Direct, Nintendo Minute, etc. Nobody is saying they should have financed commercials or subway ads...

McGruber commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

There's a total of 2 WiiU games I care about this year : Mario Kart and Smash. That's terrible. I don't think they have hit bottom yet though. The WiiU is going to be the first real flop system. They are already losing money on every system sold, whereas the GameCube was never sold at a loss.

McGruber commented on Nintendo Still Seeking a Product to Define the...:

The best feature of the gamepad will always be off TV play and the built in universal remote. So maybe the real failure is that they never successfully advertised that feature. Instead of having random families in Hollywood squares they should have done a simple commercial with a kid and his sister fighting over the TV ...

McGruber commented on Nintendo Still Seeking a Product to Define the...:

I am a WiiU owner, and while I really like the game pad (not so much it's design), there are close to no games for me on the system! And I am a Nintendo fan! But I am not 13 I am 23 and so Nintnedo's software is not always what I want, and it certainly isn't ALL I want.

That being said. I don't think Nintendo has a prob appealing to kids and families, even though so far WiiU hasn't...

The BIGGEST PROBLEM is that Nintendo now has MILLIONS of FANS in the world who know they love Nintendo games, but can't be compelled to buy a system exclusivly to play Nintendo games.

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

I'm not impressed. Nintendo needs to expand so that they can offer more first party content if they want to survive. They clearly lost 3rd parties and I feel like they are foolish for not acquiring a big studio by now given the game situation they have. Capcom would be huge.

McGruber commented on Wind Waker HD Wii U Bundle With Two Extra Game...:

This deal made me repurchase a Wii U and it has me thinking...Nintendo can't afford to lower the price and said they wont, but why the hell don't they just throw some more games in there for $299??! They need to fix a lot of things with Wii U going forward, but right now they can make moves to sell systems.

McGruber commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

I just want to point out that even though the 3DS is selling well, third party support is just as bad as Wii U and a lot of that also has to do with specs and lack of duel analog. Anyone who thinks Nintendo needs to just forget about 3rd parties is an idiot. There are a lot of people like myself that enjoy Nintendo games (not all), but desperately want to be able to play more 3rd party games. It's the reason I don't own a Wii U and frankly don't own more 3DS games. The game I want to play just aren't there. That is a loss for Nintendo

McGruber commented on A Third-Party "Secret Developer" Gives an Insi...:

I read the whole article and it was a very good read. At this point I am not surprised by anything though, except that nobody at Nintendo used Live or PSN. I also think this person hit the nail on the head in terms of the future of WiiU. It will sell in small quantities until Nintendo puts out a killer app, but even then it won't match PS4/One sales and real 3rd party support is all but gone regardless. Maybe Nintendo will learn from this and really give us the console we want next time.
