MetaRyan commented on Mario Kart 8 Speeds Past The Two Million Copie...:

We kept saying that the next big game will turn the Wii U around. We finally got that game. And after E3, a lot of my video gamer friends who previously weren't planning on getting a Wii U are now either planning on buying one by Smash Bros.'s release or seriously considering it. Plus, the Wii U looks set to outpace the Xbox One for at least a few more weeks.



MetaRyan commented on E3 2014: Reggie Fils-Aime Reaffirms Nintendo's...:

Good. The Gamepad needs to stay.
However, hopefully the 3rd party studios that aren't making games for the Wii U don't see the Gamepad as an entry barrier. The game doesn't need unique Gamepad functionality, just release the dang thing for Wii U.



MetaRyan commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

Stop keeping the GameCube controller-only snobs alive, Nintendo! You could have defeated the disease that has plagued Smash Bros local multiplayer matches for 6 years!
Oh well. I guess a Smash Bros get-together wouldn't be a Smash Bros get-together without that one guy that needs to use a GameCube controller.



MetaRyan commented on Meet Sticks, The New Member of Sonic Boom's "C...:

I think the voice is fine. Besides, they always "clean up" voices for stuff like this. Hiccup from How to Train Your Dragon sounds a lot more nasal-ly in studio, but Dreamworks cleans up the audio. My guess is that Sticks will be similar.
(And it's interesting to see a negative reaction from the Nintendo crowd when there's such a positive reaction in the Sonic community.)



MetaRyan commented on Video: Mario Kart 8's Balloon-Popping Battle M...:

Thank goodness. Except for Funky Stadium in MK Wii, just about every recent arena was terribly designed for kart battling. If karts didn't have things like momentum and speed, sure, the arenas would be great. However, they do, and courses that forget the physics of a kart aren't fun. Having tracks being adjusted for kart battling makes a lot more sense since the tracks are actually designed for karts. (Funky Stadium has the rare quality among battle courses of being fun to drive around on and having obstacles without high risk of losing all momentum due to bad level design.)



MetaRyan commented on The North American Version Of Tomodachi Life W...:

Honestly, I'm fine with this. Using European translations in North America could mess up the game due to differences in speaking, and it since it takes a whole lot of time and resources just to localize this for one language, it doesn't make sense to right off the bat translate to a language that only around 2% of North America would benefit from (French) or a language only majorly used in a country/region (I'm not sure if Central America is counted in this) that doesn't seem to buy nearly as many video games as major video game countries, like Japan and the US (Spanish). If there's enough demand, Nintendo can either patch or re-release the game with more translations.



MetaRyan commented on Review: I am an Air Traffic Controller Airport...:

Man, this game is fun, but there isn't a way to be able to see every plane's position at the airport, which is a problem. I've Game Over-ed a couple times on the Hard demo stage because planes would be in places I didn't want them too, but I couldn't see that until that stupid plane that needs to be towed to spot 61 would collide with them.



MetaRyan commented on Infamous Series was Originally Inspired by Ani...:

You know you're on a Nintendo-oriented site when literally no one stylizes inFAMOUS correctly. Lowercase i and n, capital "famous", got it?
(Sorry, it just bugs me for some reason. I'm a Nintendo fan through and through, but I thought inFAMOUS [at least the first one] was a really good game.)



MetaRyan commented on Talking Point: Steel Diver: Sub Wars Proves Th...:

Man, I'm not sure why, but I think I'm addicted to the multiplayer in this game. I really want to buy the full version, but A) Thanks to the new tax implementation on the eShop, I'm 53 cents short, and B) I often randomly disconnect; of course, that problem might be on my end.



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

Remember, the PS4 (and Xbox One) still has to get through that awkward launch phase, and the Wii U has already gone through that. When you look at the launch window lineups for the other two systems, they have fewer "great" games than the Wii U had/has, and no must-buy games whatsoever, with the possible exception of Titanfall for FPS fans.



MetaRyan commented on New Video Content in the Pipeline for 3DS's Ni...:

New content? YES! There hasn't been a non-recycled video in months! Having major titles like Bravest Warriors and Bee and PuppyCat, along with a much-needed replacement for Meat or Die (the only thing that makes it worse than it already is is re-running it every month), and 2 awesome-sounding Nintendo series, is a breath of fresh air for the service. I was starting to wonder if I should remove Nintendo Video, but now I definitely won't.



MetaRyan commented on Nintendo Working on Fix for Pokémon X & Y Gam...:

Good for the people that are affected by this. I don't personally know anyone that has had any problems with this, but I know I'd get annoyed if this happened to me. I had Silver's save battery die right after I beat Red on Mt. Silver.



MetaRyan commented on Feature: Last Night A Hedgehog Saved My Life:

Being my first real video games, I couldn't beat any of the 5 I got from my cousins (1-3, 3D Blast, Spinball) for years. Of course, I didn't figure out how to do a spindash for a while, and dat barrel... but they were still my favorite games for a long time.
