Midayle commented on Jools Watsham Wants to Know if You Want a Deme...:

I purchased Moon and Dementium II at full price for the DS and have recently purchased Dementium Remastered for the 3DS at full price.

I Dementium III was make I would probably purchase that one at full price too.



Midayle commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

From what I have seen of Devil's Third, I expect it to have same level of quality as Madworld for the Wii. It will have a decent campaign that will be easily completed on easy and more difficult options that require and understanding of game mechanics.



Midayle commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda...:

I think Reggie and Nintendo made the right decision not to show Zelda at this e3. Sometimes I wonder why game developers conditionally and continually lie about their products at e3, then one read the comments and comes to understand that the "fans" are speak negatively of the brand if lies are not told.

There were questionable parts of this years Nintendo e3 presentation, but those bits are no where near as bad as the obvious lies Sony and Microsoft got praised for saying.



Midayle commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

While everyone is giving their wishlists, I want to see a 3D Mario platformer game on Wii U. 3D World was nice but it was more of a spinoff than a main entry in the series.
The N64 had Super Mario 64
The Gamecube had Sunshine
The Wii had Galaxy
The Wii U has ...



Midayle commented on Poll: Did The Splatoon Global Testfire Hit Its...:

I played the demo. It was fun, but I predict Splatoon will have the same problem that Titanfall had. I like many people, will not pay full price for a game that has strong multiplayer focus with weak or nonexistent single player. Hopefully it will be $20 within a year after launch, like Titanfall.



Midayle commented on Feature: 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Two:

I recently go the "The wolf among us" from the humble bundle store. I got a steam key and a telltales game key. I only want the steam key, so the following is the telltale game key if any one wants it.



Midayle commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

Given time I have reconsider my opinion on this issue. The amount of content being offered as DLC seam to be enough for a new game at full price. The DLC is not unreasonably priced, but I still oppose per-ordering for any reason, but availability (which is almost never an issue).

I still fear that Nintendo to headed toward Ubisoft's DLC practices. In which case I will just get the "game of the year" or "Nintendo Selects" version.



Midayle commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

If this continues, I will stop buy Nintendo games at release and instead buy the "Game of Year Edition" with all of the content.

I already do this for PC games on Steam. I will wait for this DLC to go on sale before I get it (that is if I get it). I still love Nintendo, but if you give them and inch they will take a mile. Just look at Ubisoft DRM and DLC practices if you want to know the future of Nintendo.



Midayle commented on Feature: Ten Wii U and 3DS eShop Games That Ar...:

For one of you who wants the Legend of Zelda the Wind Waker HD in North America, I got this code from the Mario Kart 8 promotion. I already own all the promoted games, so I though I give away this code to some one how might appreciate it. (A053-93R4-0L8T-RAUL)



Midayle commented on HullBreach Studios and Cthulhi Games Retract C...:

I world really like to know how much the Sadness IP is worth. If I were a video Game Developer I would be willing to pay over a thousand dollars for an IP with no games and minimal awareness. If they do not get the IP then maybe they can get the "Winter" IP from n-space.



Midayle commented on Ubisoft Data Places Mario as the Second Highes...:

I am surprised that there is no debate over the means of measuring the success of these franchises. This is not in terms of units sold, but total revenue. Before anyone takes this list at face value, we should know who they handled inflation and game rentals.

The chart of Wikipedia is by Units sold and not Revenue, so it is less subject to bias. It has Super Mario Series at 262 million alone, which is greater than Call of Duties 120 million.



Midayle commented on Lucasfilm Decrees That All Star Wars Video Gam...:

My sympathies go to the editors and readers of Wookieepedia. They must of spent endless amount of time to trying to understand the expanded universe of Star Wars only to have all become officially meaningless.



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

To comment on a minor point on that video, this is another piece of evidence that the American not have truly given up royalty. The idea that having dinner with the President of the United States is a great honour and would be worth passing up to host a Smash Brothers Torment is an aspect of American royalty. It may come as a surprise to Americans, but most people who live in countries other than the US could not recognize their Prime Minister's or President's spouse. Ex Presidents of the United States are treated better than most of the royalty in Europe.

Also I would like to add I enjoyed the Gerudo Valley theme and the end of the video.



Midayle commented on High Voltage Software Developing 3DS Version o...:

I remember the hype around the Conduit. There were many post of forms which thought that High Voltage Software was going to become the next Rare. It would be nice if this Spider man game turned out well, and without Matt Casamassina and Mark Bozon this game will not have unrealistically high expectations.

On a side note, I am overcome by memories of fondly looking forward to The Grinder (which was announced before the release of the Conduit). I suppose now it is probably safe to say that the Grinder will never see the light of day.



Midayle commented on The Next Batman Game Is Arkham Knight, And No,...:

I will probably get this game when it drops to the $5 on steam. I got Rayman Legends WiiU over the PC version because the WiiU version was the definitive version.

Even if this game came out the WiiU, I do not think it would be better than the PC version.



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

I will predict that we will see the Nintendo Fusion DS. It will be a WiiU console that can also play 3DS and DS games. This will be an attempt the make the WiiU software profitable in the same way the DS Lite the DS software profitable.

A few new trailers of previously announced game might be shown. The game I would happiest to see would be Cult County on the 3DS by Renegade Kidd, but I am not holding my breath.



Midayle commented on Iwata Looking To Emulate iOS And Android With ...:

If Nintendo does do that, I might play play an iOS or Android game. Due to the monopolistic completion of cell phone companies in Canada, I have intentionally avoided getting a an iOS or Android device.

Hopefully the IOS and Android competition can bring the Nintendo eShop prices down to a level near Steam prices. (On Steam you can get a Sega Genesis game on sale for about 1 dollar).



Midayle commented on The Nikkei Reports Potential Nintendo Smartpho...:

I do not appose the concept of Nintendo expanding into mobile gaming on phones. My fear is the consequences not only in the quality of the games and the resources (primarily money) reallocated to make them. The resources used on mobile gaming could be more effectively used be make and F-Zero or Star Fox game of the WiiU. To reiterate, I fear another Wii Music quality mobile game.



Midayle commented on Shadow Of The Eternals Isn't Dead, But Don't E...:

As much as I would like to see a finished version of Shadow of the Eternal, I also fear it. This game could have the quality of Eternal Darkness or it could have the quality of Too Human. I would rather not have this game see the light of day, then to see another failed project of Denis Dyack.



Midayle commented on Silicon Knights Loses Appeal in Epic Games Law...:

Silicon Knights died the same death that Factor 5 and Rareware did. They are victims of a desire for greatness and something more than what Nintendo could provide. This is how it had to end, but not how it should of.



Midayle commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

There are a few other games that could come out for the Wii U in 2014 if not 2015. They are:
-Fire Emblem x Tenshi Megumi
-Zelda Wii U
-Yarn Yoshi
-3rd Sonic Wii U game (Nintendo and Sega made an agreement for 3 exclusive sonic titles to come to the Wii U. The first two being lost world and Olympics, let hope the best is for last)
-Masamichi Abe's new Nintendo IP (Director of the original Pikmin is working on something new. Probably 2015 at the earliest, but we can still hope)

Lets not forget Super Mario 3D world was announced during a Nintendo Direct during E3 2013 and was released later that year. Nintendo probably has a few announcement for game coming out in 2014.



Midayle commented on Nintendo Network Services Now Starting to "Ope...:

I am still trying to get A link between world as a digital download for my 3DSXL. When ever I try and redeem to code the eShop gives me the error code 011-6561. Nintendo website is unable to determine what that codes means and the email support is down. I might try and call or just pirate the game to get around Nintendo's customer service.



Midayle commented on Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter Releases D...:

I am still trying to download the Legend of Zelda a Link between worlds from the download ticket that came with my 3DSXL. It is nice they are reducing the strain on the servers, but I will only buy physical copies of Nintendo games in the future because of this.

Nintendo has failed to provide a service I paid for. If I can not get Zelda 3DS soon, I might just take an easier route (and buy the physical version).
