Moshugan commented on Koji Kondo Discusses Music Creation for Iconic...:
@Kenology I checked that out and yes, you seem to be correct on Kondo composing only one song for Skyward (the intro music)!I didn't expect that. Since that's true, I'm not worried in the slightest about Zelda U's score. Skyward Sword has one of my favorite soundtracks ever, and if the same people are working on U, the music should be awesome!

@CB85 @Tainy @bbliksteen8 @Tsurii897 @Jstrummer @mizumaru @bro2dragons and other,
Here's the exact wording:
Question: You showed the Zelda trailer, and that's such a huge world, and how is that gonna be for you guys to approach that as far as gameplay and story, because it's such a huge world?
Bill's traslation:So yeah, with Zelda games what we've always done is we've always tried to make them a game where you enter this big world of Hyrule and there's a lot to explore and discover. But because of the hardware limitations what we always had to do was segment off each area and piece those segments together in a way that made them feel like a big world. But now with the hardware capabilities of Wii U, what we did was we first started by saying, "Well let's see what we can do if we take an entire world the size of the world from Twilight Princess and just try to make that as one area on the game."
I think it's apparent from the answer, that they first started out by seeing if they could make a one seamless are the size of TP world as a technology test, and went from there.And if you stretch the interpretation, you could say that it might mean that not the entire world will be seamless, but the loading times only occur between segments the size of TP world, so no constrained areas.
To me it's funny that they didn't really answer her exact question, tho.
@JasonAnArgoNOT64 @Kenology He is listed as a Supervisor for Zelda U. So he will be in charge of the score even if not composing it.Skyward Sword soundtrack is one of his greatest scores so I don't know how he could've topped it with Zelda U anyway.
I hoped they utilized the amazing sound fonts from A Link Between World to recreate the MM music, but that comment seems like it might just be remastered. Either way, I loved the N64 sounds!

Green is not a creative color.
Aaaa! Getting a real streetpass hit from Miyamoto-san!? @ ___ @
It's so cooool! So jealous!
EDIT: Commented too soon. Let's try again...
AAAAA!!!! Getting a signed 3DS from Mister Myamottooooo!!? x____x
I want to take that man to a dinner! >:3
Koji Kondo is my hero!
His music has instilled such emotions in me that would not have been felt without them.
The games he worked on would not have been the same without him. I feel like he has shaped Nintendo and it's franchises as much as any game designer who worked on them.
Moshugan commented on Feature: 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Six:
Of course it had to be Yoshi! It was so obvious! Nice.
Moshugan commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:
Good Lord there was some top notch games released this year!It's too hard to choose the GotY for Wii U retail and overall!I've enjoyed Mario Kart 8 immensely, but Smash is just too awesome. I haven't sunk my teeth into Bayonetta or Donkey Kong too much yet so hard to say about those. The rest have no chance.
Shovel Knight was my definite choise for eShop win on both platforms. It took my heart by storm! Smash for 3DS got my vote for 3DS retail, so maybe I'll give the Wii U one to Mario Kart 8 ?
Moshugan commented on Feature: 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Five:
@Spoony_Tech Well, nobody said it had to be strictly from Nintendo.
@Mariominer "6 gamers playing"Hey, I like this one! They could include footage of a six player Smash.
@Spoony_Tech Sega games have been available on Nintendo console's for quite a while, and Sonic is even featured in a few Nintendo made games, so I think this is fair.
Moshugan commented on Feature: 12 Days of Nintendo Christmas - Day Four:
On the fifth day of Christmasmy true love sent to me:Five Boxing Rings...As in from Punch-Out!
Moshugan commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:
I got the adapter through Amazon Germany, but of course it cost a bit more due to postage. Otherwise it was at a regular price.
Also the shipping took a week, but the adapter isn't even released through the normal national importer yet, so I got it relatively early.
My SmashCube controller should arrive in the next days.
I'm quite happy!
Sorry for everyone who has to wait or resorted to buying an overpriced one. :
@SuperAlex12 "Was the Smash Bros. bundle limited edition?"
That's a good question! They weren't labeled or marketed as a limited edition, so maybe there will be more? As to what quantities, remains to be seen.
@Luffymcduck '"I got both, so I'm one happy gamer" but I still need another adapter for maximum awesomeness."
Haha! I'll probably end up buying a second one too at some point!
But it is awesome for those rare moments of mass Smash that all kinds of controllers are compatible.
Moshugan commented on UCraft Wii U Beta Plans Outlined as New Traile...:
@mostro328 "Wait for this or get my daughter minecraft on ps3 [?]"Minecraft any day of the week! Go buy it, now! You won't be disappointed.
Moshugan commented on Sega Looking To Turn Streets Of Rage, Shinobi,...:
Nope, nope, nope!!
Moshugan commented on Video: What if... Smash Bros. Had Announcers F...:
Haha, nice video! Next time don't have the "What if.." between every section though.
On a side note, those CPU's can be so stupid some times. I wish Smash would have a little more realistic AI.
@TheRealThanos Yeah, you're right on the negativity. We should give devs like this the benefit of the doubt until the game is out.We all need a chance and nobody benefits form others pushing them down. :J
Moshugan commented on Review: Tested With Robots! (Wii U eShop):
TEN EUROS for this piece of shuffle?!
I blame this one on Nintendo. They seem to be really desperate for Third Party support.
1/10 "GET OUT OF MY (e)SHOP!"
Moshugan commented on Video: The Warp Zone Gets Real to Settle it in...:
I liked it until the final sequence, that was brutal.
"Siege mentality" . . . Aptly put!
Well, this will obviously never replace Minecraft nor probably never reach it's level of quality, but it could shape up to be a game that offers reasonable amounts of amusement. The different genre elements like karting and gunplay, while not original, are fun deviations to the mining/crafting formula.
And there sure ain't nothing like it on Wii U.
I could see people playing this if they manage online and persistent worlds and keep adding stuff.
What bugs me the most is the total lack of humility of these newbie devs. You can't tell me your shizzle is the thing if it ain't!
Moshugan commented on Frenchy Bird is Flapping Its Way to Wii U in E...:
@Kirk "I'd complain but I made a Flappy Bird clone myself so I'm hardly one to talk."But did you try to sell it..? Heck, I've made one for a Unity programming class!
Moshugan commented on Weirdness: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Fans Fi...:
The stage editor is quite anemic, and for me it's the most disappointing element of Smash4WiiU, but apparently that doesn't mean people can't find awesomely creative uses for it! ^_^I will copy this for sure.
Moshugan commented on Nintendo Wins Four At The Game Awards 2014, Wh...:
@LordOfGamez "I went through all these trailers that was just CGI and then the Zelda U part was when I listened."
It's awesome that most all of Nintendo's trailers and demos from recent years have been comprised almost completely of true gameplay video!It pays in the long run, even if some Ninty trailers might seem boring in comparison to more cinematic ones.
Everybody hates false advertisement!
Moshugan commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U St...:
This was the best surprise to wake up to this morning! ^___^It looks really promising. I really love the horse play (no pun intended) and the grand feel of the world.
There's a lot of promising things in this, although some things look like they still need some polish. My main worries are that the world will mostly be empty and it'll get boring riding around, and some elements like the far away views look quite low detail. Well, it's hard to make too far reaching conclusions from this, so I'll reserve my judgement.
A whole year to go, so I'm trustful they'll make it good.
Congratz Nintendo! Glad to see them getting the recognition.
Moshugan commented on New Mario Maker Footage Shows Off Multi-Genera...:
I just realized Miyamoto didn't have a translator! Way to go man.
Moshugan commented on Amazon UK Is Cancelling GameCube Adapter Order...:
@Quorthon I'm not sure what you mean with USB controllers?
@noctowl Yeah, I would, but those mothers cost a ton where I'm at. :I
Been doing fine with the Upad and Classic Pro so far, even Wiimote+nunchuk works fine (Thank God for button mapping)!
Wiimote only is just too clumsy, but we've had to do that for over 5 player matches.
Still, I'm looking forward to getting to utilize my collection of Gamecube controllers!
EDIT: Just reserved myself one Wii U Pro Controller along with a Smash Gamecube Controller.
Oh man, sorry for everyone.
Fortunately my adapter is on it's way in the mail! Managed to order from Amazon Germany and saw a couple in Amazon France, but the prices are either high or they won't ship to everywhere.
Hopefully Ninty makes another production run soon!
Moshugan commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:
Well, this sucks.
It's not acceptable that such a high profile game suffers from a fatal error like this, not to mention how embarrassing it must be for Nintendo, but there's always the possibility for a single mistake left in the code that only surfaces in a very specific set of conditions. Such bugs can't always be completely corrected before the launch date, but I'm sure it will be before long.
In that sense the game was released "unfinished" but this isn't all that unusual people. We'll get over it.
Moshugan commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:
@steveo_1983 Exactly! One of my local stores only got THREE of the Game+Adapter -bundles - and it was a GameStop!
It hasn't even released in every country. ;PThe release in Finland isn't until sometime Q1...
I looked through every Euro Amazon site, and I could find stock in the Italian, Spanish and French Amazon sites, but only a few would ship to Finland and those were not cheap when including the postage.
On Thu-Fri night I managed to make an order from Amazon Germany and the state of the order is "Expected to ship on Dec. 1.-2." so fingers crossed!
Moshugan commented on Video: GameStop Shows How It Faked 'Karissa th...:
I think this was pretty funny! But I think they should've revealed it right away at the end of the event.
Moshugan commented on Review: Xavier (Wii U eShop):

@OorWullie Sounds definitely suspicious!
Moshugan commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:
@brandonbwii "It's not officially scheduled to come out until Q2 of next year based on Nexis' twitter account."
I was talking about the Rivyd game Kenji, which I was joking about.
Moshugan commented on Review: Super Mario Advance (Wii U eShop / Gam...:
I would've liked to hear more about the differences compared to the All-Stars version!
Yeah, who cares about this.
We wanna hear more about Kenji: Rise Of A Hero!
EDIT: What the heck!? I was just joking and I thought they'd scrapped the game, since there hasn't been any word after the initial announcement around July 25.
But now from Kotaku ( http://kotaku.com/the-week-in-games-the-last-big-release-tuesday-of-2014-1659457108 ) there's news that it should be coming on November 25! Might it just be a placeholder date?
Moshugan commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:
I love my Wii U. I think it's a great machine and it has many awesome titles and uses already - and just like any other Nintendo console, it will have it's library of games to look back on.
C- might seem a bit harsh, but I think your assessment is honest and fair.Wii U has a lot to like in it, but overall it just hasn't done as well as it ought to have.
Moshugan commented on Nintendo Download: 13th November (Europe):
Is there any confirmed time for the MK8 DLC? Is it on thursday like all the other junk?
Moshugan commented on Review: Shovel Knight (Wii U eShop):
I just absolutely LOVE this game!I'm glad it's finally out in Europe. ^_^
I'm still on the fence about getting it for both the Wii U and 3DS. It's tempting, and I think the game is worth 25 euros, but additional 10€ for the same game is a bit too much.
Moshugan commented on Eiji Aonuma Confirms Majora's Mask 3D Has Been...:
I love how detailed and careful the work in these remakes are!Watching the trailer, every asset feels genuine like it was on the N64, but when compared, everything is remade with much more detail and refinement, just as it was when playing OoT3D. It really makes them feel familiar, yet fresh.And this game especially needs a refresh! The Virtual Console version for example is pretty awful with it's 12fps. ;p
Moshugan commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Qu...:
Haha, I love this comment section.
This is how the Conclusion reads to me:
TenDonkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong-Quest ten to ten what ten would ten at the ten ten ten; it ten the ten for Ten Ten Ten, ten out the ten ten and ten ten to ten it ten. Diddy’s Kong Quest is about as close to a perfect game as the SNES got, and every single aspect of it feels like it belongs, ten ten ten ten in the ten, and nothing feels like it’s missing, ten ten ten Ten ten ten ten ten ten the ten ten. Ten ten ten ten a ten ten ten, this is an absolute must-buy and should frankly already be on your Wii U console.

@erv Yeah, I heard about it. But don't worry! The kid woke up!
Moshugan commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):
What a great review! I wish there was more bashibg though, this game deserves it. ;p
I just don't get why Nintendo let's shuttle like this reach their console. Everyone can see from a mile away that it just is not worth it.
I hope the probable popularity of MM3D will influence Nintendo's future games. BTW, I like the original moon's smaller face better. ;p
Moshugan commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:
"Early 2015 release dates and details" coz there needs to be news about upcoming titles.
@AlexOlney I must agree with everyone else on the part that you're score and the content of the review don't match. You give absolutely no arguments as to why you dropped a point from the score!
The only negative points in the review:
"Expresso . . . has been sadly omitted from this entry."
"On the whole [secrets are] not quite as well hidden as in the first instalment."
Some might say that "No game is perfect", but that is an invalid argument, as it gets too philosophical and vague.
