Well I definitely won't be downloading, because who in their right mind downloads retail games. Especially games that will undoubtedly be worth 2x as much in a few short years. ESPECIALLY given Nintendo's beyond archaic account system. But then again, some people just like simple convenience and don't mind paying more for less...



McGruber commented on Review: IRONFALL Invasion (3DS eShop):

I am definitely buying this. The review said it has some impressive visuals for a download game, but I'd argue the visuals are some of the most impressive on the system as a whole by those screenshots!



McGruber commented on Capcom Has Now Sold 1.2 Million Copies of Supe...:

I wish Nintendo would buy Capcom. I love the series Capcom owns more than any other studio (I'm a RE fan). This was my first 3DS game, and remains one of the best on the system IMO. I think it might even have been the first online 3DS game. From day 1 the online play was smooth and never needed a patch. I miss the days of OK third party support on Nintendo systems :(..

Merry Christmas!



McGruber commented on Latest Sales Data For Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:

Well Nintendo isn't doing a great job at attracting new customers/fans, so I am not surprised at all that the customers are getting older. It's the same group of us that have been buying Nintendo systems since the early 90s that keep coming back for more of the same...



McGruber commented on Exclusive New Nintendo 3DS Features Teased For...:

I thought graphically OOT3D was amazing, and is still the best looking 3DS game to me. The controls were also great, and I actually liked the gyro controls in it. I like having the option to use gyro controls and regular controls (same goes with waggle and every other gimick), but I found myself opting for the gyro aiming more than not.



McGruber commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham:

This game actually has an open world unlike all the other Lego games on 3DS. I might actually buy it eventually for this reason. Portable open world 3D gaming on my New 3DS? :D



McGruber commented on Bandai Namco Announces Ace Combat: Assault Hor...:

I personally think this is cool. Amiibo is only worthwhile for me if there are a lot of games that use them. I have no interest in the Smash or Kart functionality, but knowing there are many games with different quirky benefits would definitely increase my likelihood of purchasing. Right now it's just the Samus 1 for me.



McGruber commented on Nintendo Aiming To Create A Stronger Bond With...:

There is POTENTIAL for Nintendo made smartphone apps to do WONDERS for their business by creating awareness and getting a lot of people interested in Nintendo again. But, the fact that they are waiting until 2015 to launch anything just proves that they don't take it seriously enough.



McGruber commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

I buy all my new games at GameStop because of their rewards program. They have a really handy app that let's you check any games inventory at their stores. It looks like it's in stock at most Gamestop stores near me.



McGruber commented on Cubemen 2:

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 :/



McGruber commented on A 3DS Can be Used as a Controller in Super Sma...:

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



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

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...



McGruber commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

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.



McGruber commented on IronFall:

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



McGruber commented on Die Rise Could Arrive in Call of Duty: Black O...:

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...
