"When people started complaining that I wasn't active on Twitter anymore, it was suggested that a PR person could just post in my name. I thought that was about the worst idea I'd ever heard, so I left it as is and let the silence speak for itself."
Wow. Nintendo continues to prove how backwards they are. Absolutely rediculous.

No one is going to buy a Wii U to play GBA games. It does not make business sense to not also have these on 3DS, period. Nintendo needs to do what Sony does with their older library of games; make it integrated with one another and simultaneous.

moomoo commented on Nintendo Versions Of Mutant Mudds Have Sold Be...:

For what it's worth, I saw way more advertising for this game on 3DS and Wii U. I didn't even know it was on PSN until I checked the store randomly one day. There also isn't as much competition on either eshop, considering its price point. There's tons of indie games on PSN and Steam that are around the same price point and are also much better (and in the same genre to boot).

Then there's what everyone else said about the appeal retro platformers will have on Nintendo audiences, which I'd have a hard time arguing with too.

moomoo commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

The idea that a system can be successful without 3rd party support is ludicrous. Loyalties off of 3rd parties is the biggest money-maker for a console maker. To say it's not important is foolish.

At the very least, the Wii had 3rd party support. It was different support, but it was there in tremendously large quantities. With the Wii U, that's not the case, and it's not looking likely to change.

I feel like all of the continuations of series that are on this list have run their course. I don't see much need for a new Advance Wars or Wave Race from a perspective of new ideas. The only cool idea on here would be a Pokémon fighting game.

As for Earthbound, it's pretty much the worst JRPG I've played when it comes to game mechanics, so it can die in a fire. :p

The fact that we don't have a wider variety of VC games really irks me.

Why not just put VC games on iOS and the like? They clearly aren't a selling point on the Wii U and 3DS; just look at how poorly the service is handled on those systems.

You can still play with buttons on the Wii U and 3DS, and I have a feeling people are going to go for those versions over touchscreens. This just allows for them to make way more money, since they expand their audience while also advertising their franchises.

moomoo commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Readers' Award...:

The readers had a better list! :O
I must be dreaming... I only have minor nitpicks here. Solid list all around. It's also nice to see such a niche game like Fire Emblem get so much community praise. 3rd place for overall game of the year isn't too shabby when you have the insanely recognizable Zelda and Mario ahead of it.

moomoo commented on Nintendo Disables Swapnote's SpotPass Service ...:

Darn it. I actually really liked Swapnote. I loved seeing all the things that my friends would write.

I get why they did it, but jeez, couldn't they have been a bit less drastic and just get rid of the ability to not send pictures and audio clips? It's not exactly easy to draw a detailed picture of inappropriate body parts on Swapnote. Most wouldn't be as obvious as the stuff Georgia O'Keefe made, and she was able to get away with calling them flowers.

I mean, I get the other things, like sending in phone numbers and such, but seriously, did you honestly think that some people wouldn't abuse this, Nintendo?

Actually, now that I think about it, Pokémon is probably the reason why they did this. In the meta game, the Friend Safari can't be used unless if you have friends, so kids who may not traditionally go on message boards due to their age may go on to get friends for that purpose. Nintendo must have been afraid of people that young using Nintendo's online features and being exposed to risk.

I already own the game on the 360, so I wasn't going to get this version unless if it was cheaper anyway. It's unfortunate, too, since I really want to play it on the Wii U. I guess I'll just wait for the inevitable price drop.

moomoo commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

@Onett ...but it's not new. There's a good chance that most of the people on this site have already played it all the way through.
I mean, there's other games that could have been mentioned instead of Wind Waker. Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, Rayman Legends; it just seems weird to mention a game that came out 10 years ago of all games is all.

moomoo commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I don't quite get the author on this one. It's fine to not be into GTA V. But where did the Wind Waker thing come from? If you wanted to replay Wind Waker, you could just do it on the Gamecube. I don't see why it needed to be brought up.

Everyone should keep in mind that this is for the entire video game market, not necessarily Nintendo. With mobile gaming (an incredibly large portion of the industry) being made up entirely of downloads, this isn't very surprising.

moomoo commented on Nintendo Confirms Limited Edition Wii U Bundle...:

@NorthLightSuplx Rayamn Legends, Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101. These were supposed to be launch window games. Instead, they released right before or will release right before the price drop. Those games were the reason I bought a Wii U early, so to have them release so close to a price drop really makes it leave a bad taste in the mouth.

moomoo commented on Nintendo Confirms Limited Edition Wii U Bundle...:

@SkywardCrowbar You know, I'd disagree with you if games would have come out when they were supposed to. But all of the worthwhile Wii U games that have or will release are coming out at around the same time of the price drop. Pikmin 3, Wonderful 101, and Rayman Legends were all supposed to be launch window titles, but they didn't come out until about a month or less to the price drop.

I really hope there's some sort of compensation, because when you promise software in the first 6 months and don't deliver, it's natural for the userbase to be ticked.

moomoo commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

@Realgamer4life People can indeed read directions. I don't know how many people that do read directions, though. I know I don't, but I do my research. Most consumers, however, probably want things to be as simple as be.

Since the hardrive isn't mandatory, many people won't go for it, as they won't see the point in taking advantage of the great things a hardrive would offer. If it was so integral, why not just include it? They just want to play some games off of the discs they buy.

How many people who bought a Wii U actually use an external HDD for their system? Even if it's a high percentage of the userbase, you won't want to take chances and mandate it on your game. It's too risky.

moomoo commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

@Realgamer4life If you're a parent who isn't familiar with the video game industry and don't follow Nintendo online, then you're not going to know. Let's say that your child wants a Wii U for his birthday, along with a game. You give that Wii U to your precious child along with that game, only to discover that that game needs to be installed, and the space on your system isn't enough.

Wouldn't that suck?

There's lots of people who don't follow Nintendo a lot that may want to buy their system. Regardless of whether Nintendo recommends an external Hardrive, many people aren't going to hear, because they just want to buy the system and some games.

moomoo commented on Talking Point: The Wii U's Limited Hard Drive ...:

@Hylian_Scholar How many Wii U owners actually have an external hardrive?
If there are few people who have a hardrive to do installs on, it doesn't make sense for a publisher to mandate it when the install space required would be larger then the maximum amount of space on the basic Wii U model. It's too risky.

This will be a major problem when it comes to 3rd party stuff in the future. It's looking ever likelier that the Wii U will pretty much only play Nintendo games.

moomoo commented on Splinter Cell Blacklist Wii U Version's Perfor...:

Most of the people here seem to be blaming Ubisoft for the lack of graphical prowess in this game when compared to other versions.

From what I can see, this may very well be Nintendo's fault. The fact that games can't be partially installed onto the hardrive for disc games means that everything has to be loaded from the disc. This results in stuff like pop-in, frame rate issues and the much longer loading times. So for any games that are trying to make a very large world with a lot of stuff going on (Assassin's Creed 3, Splinter Cell, and Lego City Undercover, a Nintendo published game) then its going to be plagued with these kind of problems.

I don't care how you slice it; if a game running on 2012 hardware is being outdone by a machine made in 2005, that's not a good indicator of what the Wii U is capable of. Nintendo seemed to be so focused on innovating with the Gamepad that they didn't focus on just making a system that could play games of a very large variety in good quality. This looks like it will be a machine where you can only really play Nintendo games.

Regardless, I plan on getting this soon. I love stealth games, and off-TV play alone makes this the best version for me. Also, I doubt these problems (outside of loading times) won't really be noticeable without a side-by-side comparison.

moomoo commented on Review: Rayman Legends (Wii U):

The people denying themselves of this game because it was delayed are fools. This is probably going to be the best game on the Wii U this year. It also looks to be one of the best platformers ever made.

I'm hoping that the main character isn't as boring as Connor was as in 3.

Regardless, this series really impresses me. For a series where there's a game every year, the amount of stuff the developers do each year is remarkable.

moomoo commented on Soapbox: 'Vintage' Used Game Prices Do Nothing...:

Considering these "vintage" games didn't come out that long ago, I think it's safe to say that it's the fault of the people who didn't buy them that there's any problem. We knew Xenoblade was good from European reviews, and Metroid Prime Trilogy was a collection of games consumers already knew were good.

All this does is encourage people to buy games soon after they come out, rather than getting them to wait for them to get cheaper. I think that's a good thing for this market.

@element187 If you have the system on-hand, then yes, you can (if you've get a repair from Nintendo. Or if you just do a system transfer when you have a fully working system). But if your system is stolen, lost, or broken to oblivion then you're screwed. Your purchases are tied to a system, not an account.

@Moshugan Indeed. Especially with the weird button-mapping in this game. Why would they make the L button automatically check? L should do what A does. And why leave the y button all alone? I just don't get it.
