OK, yes, this is a clearly a fake. Why people spend time trying to fool so many people is beyond me, but let me just say I would love a pro controller style that includes the reader for amiibo functionality in it. That's actually a pretty cool idea.



McGuire commented on WayForward to Celebrate 25th Anniversary With ...:

I actually really enjoyed what WayForward managed to do with A Boy And His Blob. I think it is a fine game for the Wii if anyone is looking for something they may have missed. Having enjoyed the original NES title, the Wii version stayed true to the principles of the original very well. I hope they make this game available at a discount so others can give it a try.



McGuire commented on Three New LEGO Games Heading for Nintendo Hard...:

I have thoroughly enjoyed a number of games in the LEGO franchise, but I'm playing through The LEGO Movie game right now it is rather "Meh," to me. I hope they put more effort into this next round of franchise games, and I suspect Marvel/Disney will be stricter wiht the quality control before it gets released.

LEGO Jurassic World might be interesting, but when will we finally get a LEGO T.M.N.T. game? I feel like that one could be a lot of fun to work with.



McGuire commented on Video: YouTube's Gaming Historian Takes Offens...:

Yes, it can come off as insensitive today, but keeping in mind when this game was published I think it speaks more to the evolution of how we treat issues like this. In some ways, this can be shown as a positive of how much we as a people have grown. As you guys say, there is no way TheBig "N" would approve of this today, and that is pretty significant.



McGuire commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

For $10, I suppose I'll finally give Metroid a look. I never played a Metroid game, not because I don't like them, just because I never really had the opportunity. For $10 for that title though, it is hard to pas sup.



McGuire commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

@Quorthon I'm with you on that. Sure, this is a nice step in the right direction and it is a great way to allow some to experience these games for the first time, but I would have liked a more streamlined approach to being able to play my Wii game. Let me insert the Wii disc in the WiiU, then have a way for the system to know it is a Wii game and have a good way for me to enjoy the game without the extra steps on my end.

I'd also love if there was an option to allow me to install any Wii games coming to the eShop onto my WiiU if I already own the disc. I realize that is not likely to happen due to piracy concerns, but I feel that would be pretty nice for Wii/WiiU owners. (You can do this the illegal way, of course)



McGuire commented on Nintendo Announces a Charming New Princess Pea...:

@TourianTourist They already did Zelda, but Metroid would be cool. Good way to pay homage to the three biggest Nintendo franchises. I wouldn't be upset with a Donkey Kong version though. I suspect the next one (there will be a next one I'm guessing) would be Toad or Wario. Bowser would look awesome. Dark green with orange buttons and a red directional pad?



McGuire commented on Capcom Is Aware That We All Want A New Mega Ma...:

I think I may prefer just being able to download the games I want through the virtual console. I'm not much of a collector so having one on the shelf is not a huge deal for me. However, if they wanted to go Super Mario All-Stars on us and include some enhanced versions of the original and earlier titles in the series and put that on a disc, they may have my attention. Or do what the Sonic compilation did on the GameCube and have some nice extras or non-Mega Man games mixed in as easter eggs...
