MrGuinea commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. Planned as NX Launch...:

I suspect it will be smash with all DLC included. There's no way they would port it without it. There would be no reason for old adopters to buy it up. Glad I haven't bought any DLC though if this is true. I'm REALLY hoping for Pikmin 4 to be a launch title.

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Remains Bullish Around the 3DS and It...:

Well I guess this kind of throws the hybrid NX rumor out the window. I'm somewhat relieved, yet worried a little as I've mentioned in an earlier comment, and that's because of the dual buying of SSB and what is now seen with hyrule warriors. Charging people twice for the same DLC is completely unreasonable.

MrGuinea commented on The November NPD Results are in, Nintendo Excl...:

Wow ok, let's think about this people. Seeing how the PS4 alone has sold 3 times as many Wii Us, even if everyone that owned a Wii U bought a game, and everyone who had a PS4 bought Fallout, it would still be outnumbered 3 to 1. And not to also mention that these games are also on PC as well, so adding up Xbox, PS, and PC, that's about 5 to 1 at the very least. Yes, these games were for very niche crowds and these games aren't going to move consoles, but to solely blame Nintendo for not topping the charts makes you look silly. All of those chart topping games have been released on multiple platforms, unlike Nintendo exclusives. Just think a little before you go off and make dumb comments on things that you don't understand.

MrGuinea commented on Hyrule Warriors Legends Will Allow You to Find...:

@Yorumi I agree. I haven't got the game yet, but this game is deserving for a console not a 3DS. I'm guessing they'll make people pay for additional DLC for both copies as well just like they did for SSB. It's a giant cash grab again. I'm actually beginning to hope that the NX is going to be a hybrid console, just so stuff like this can't happen anymore. The 3DS has gotten so much more love over the past few years than the Wii U, it's no wonder why the Wii U is struggling so bad.

MrGuinea commented on Video: This is the Animal Crossing Wii U Game ...:

For one, everything in this video seemed rather dull upgrades to AC, aside from the graphics and camera.

Here's my improvements:

  • For the toolbox, it seems like a good idea, until you realize you have to use twice as many clicks to get to your shovel, and whenever you pick up your shovel you'll have to put it back in the toolbox. I suggest just making a special panel on the side just for tool items, so you always have that space. This would be the "toolbox".
  • Customizing the hot air balloons is customizing the loading screen. I'd rather skip on that whole thing, and throw in this idea:
  • OPEN WORLD concept. You move in to a settlement and build up a village from scratch. You'll have to make your town prosper by building houses, shops, a farm, etc. Once you reach a certain point, you'll be able to head outside your town in a place where other players can be seen in real time. There will be wide open fields for bug catching, giant waterfalls with fish, and you can find other settlements on the overworld map to visit as well. Not to mention different transportation as you get more prosperous (bicycle, car, gokart, etc). This is why I pass on the hot air balloon.
  • As for the inventory screen on the gamepad, this isn't new. The 3DS had it only it defaulted to the map.

I liked working towards improving your town and getting rich on AC, but if you can just do whatever you want, it really takes away the whole point of it. Sure there can be a creative mode, but I like my good old fashioned AC. So these are my improvements on for the NX version.

MrGuinea commented on NX Won't Be The Next Version Of Wii Or Wii U, ...:

Thank god, the branding is part of what sunk the Wii U. Nobody knew it was anything different, considering most who bought the wii are not avid gamers (and could not tell the difference). The Wii time was fun, but it's time to finally move on.

MrGuinea commented on Rumour: NX Set for 2016 Release With Nintendo ...:

I feel like everyone who just bought one of the Wii U bundles this past weekend is going to be very disappointed next year when they find out a new system is out, and therefore, Nintendo probably won't get those people to buy another for another few years at least. 2016 seems like it would be too early for them, but then again, 2017 seems like it would be too far for them.

MrGuinea commented on Review: Xenoblade Chronicles X (Wii U):

Still finishing up XC, but will not pass this up even if it takes me another 5 years to complete this game (I preordered the special edition guide to go with the special edition to help bring that time down).

MrGuinea commented on Poor Odds of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth ...:

In other words, what he meant was,

"We actually don't know how to use the Wii U's hardware and don't feel like learning it. It should conform to our standards. So it'll be tough to port our tiny game to the Wii U."

Second tweet, "Turns out the Wii U isn't powerful enough to fix our coding mistakes and optimize our code. We don't feel like changing it, soooo the vita is definitely better than the Wii U.

Won't support this developer if they are that lazy and won't take the time and money to port it properly.

MrGuinea commented on You Can't Alter The Chest Size Of Female Chara...:

At first I was thinking against this, but now I'm thinking that it's just a part of the body like the nose or face. We have to look beyond this little issue and look at the real problem: breasts are over sexualized in the west. If you are allowed to modify a face of an avatar, what's wrong with modifying other parts of the body to match what a person actually looks like? The only reason it got removed is because the west sexualizes everything. It's the fact that 95% of women portrayed in video games have to have unrealistic bust sizes. Along with minimal clothing, unlike men who usually always wear more clothes than women in video games. There's a lot of social problems with this issue, which no one is bringing up.

MrGuinea commented on Parent Trap: Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival ...:

Played this on day one, and I have to say it is a fun and simple game for the family. I've only played 2 board games so far, and have yet to unlock each of the minigames. Nintendo really timed this released perfect for the holiday season as this should be a definite holiday buy for families with a Wii U.

MrGuinea commented on Take a Look at Nintendo's Game Awards 2015 Nom...:

I think this whole GOTY has been crap in recent years. It just seems like they declare the nominees of whatever the most popular games are at the time or whatever is most "hardcore". I'm glad smm is making the list, but I'm guessing splatoon didn't make the list because it wasn't a "hardcore" enough shooter for the judges.

MrGuinea commented on Take a Look at Nintendo's Game Awards 2015 Nom...:

@Trikeboy sadly, probably the bug filled Fallout 4 will win since it is currently getting the most media attention with just being released and all. While it does look like a cool game, I disagree that it should be nominated for GOTY. There are plenty of other games that deserve it than one that is deemed "cool".

MrGuinea commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 12t...:

I really liked that they didn't rehash already released games. I know in E3 they spent a LONG amount of time going over games we had already heard about 6 months before and were sick of hearing about. This direct had pretty much all new stuff.

Thank goodness they're releasing in January. I currently have used up all my money on the loads of amiibo that have came out through Sept and Nov. along with all the restocks of old rare amiibos. I needed a break through december of amiibos.

MrGuinea commented on Parent Trap: Oft-Forgotten Wii U Features That...:

Sadly, off-screen play is the Wii U's top feature. So many features were left unused. We saw some potential of the uses with NintendoLand, Pikmin 3, and some party games, but sadly that was it. I think third party and indie developers used the features more than Nintendo even. It was like Nintendo put in all these features before they even knew how to use them. We didn't get any use out of the NFC until 2 years after the release, TVii was cancelled, the 2 gamepad support never happened, video/voice chat is not allowed in all the games they make (so why put it in?!), the camera was never used besides for making an avatar picture, and off-screen Wii play wasn't even enabled till over a year after the release. We just kept getting games that either didn't need the features or just plain didn't use them. Their line up should've consisted of games that could use them (i.e. Battalion Wars, the TV would be third person, and the gamepad could be top down RTS), but instead we got another super mario bros. that was exactly the same as the Wii version, a re-hash of Wii Sports that they thought would make people buy it again at a more expensive price, and many other games that you could just play with an old wii remote. To me Nintendo missed a big opportunity with the Wii U, and that was why it didn't sell. The HD graphics are awesome (see Pikmin 3), the free online is nice (Splatoon), and the off-screen play are the only good features.

I know this holiday season there are a bunch of bundles that make it a worthwhile purchase (Wii U + 2 games for less than $280), and I'm sure families don't look into the details as much as any of us gamers do, so I'm sure they will still have a good time with it with all the party games, mario games, and the amiibo festival coming out this week. If families were going to buy one console, I would suggest the Wii U. The other consoles don't have nearly as many family oriented games as Nintendo does. Local multiplayer is where it is at for families. Not playing Call of Duty in separate rooms online.

MrGuinea commented on The Next Nintendo Direct is on 12th November:

I'm guessing they'll release information on those secret games they have ready for the holiday season! I'm definitely excited! I hope they don't go into a lot of detail on already announced games such as AC amiibo festival and starfox. I'm sure they'll cover mobile as well for a little bit of it, possibly announcing another mobile game in the works.

MrGuinea commented on Video: The New Animal Crossing: amiibo Festiva...:

A lot more features than I thought there would be so that's exciting! Really looking forward to playing this game with my wife when it comes out. They're not targeting the main gamer audience with this title, it's more of a family/children audience.

Also, it seems strange that the villager can't be used as an amiibo for this.

MrGuinea commented on EA Will Evaluate "Any And All Opportunities" W...:

I could care less for EA's games, but I do care about third party support. The more support the better, even if it's EA. All I'd like to see is Ubisoft come back on board because I have enjoyed their games since the GCN days. Here's to hoping for a Zombi2 on the NX, but I'll probably see pigs flying before that happens.

MrGuinea commented on Michael Pachter Thinks Miitomo Will Have Troub...:

So many people overreacting. smh. This was never meant to replace facebook, nor be the next form of social media. Anyone who still thinks this This app was probably the proof of concept for their mobile front. They aren't going to go out and make a mario or zelda game to kill their own hardware sales. This app is basically to test the waters, and make a name for themselves. Once other people who don't actively follow Nintendo news sees they are making mobile games, then Nintendo will send out other apps.

And everyone has been complaining about too many mario games, and not enough new IPs, yet those same people want another mario game on a smartphone. A bunch of hypocrites if you ask me.

@Hinaru77 My thoughts exactly.

MrGuinea commented on Details Emerge on How Nintendo Accounts Will Work:

@Kirk That's exactly what I was saying.You want more than what is even standard, which is pretty much everybody in general. As a Nintendo fan I've always wanted to just be caught up to everyone so I CAN want more than what is standard. Nintendo obviously can't jump from the first gameboy to a 3DS in one cycle. Heck, I'm just happy Nintendo is actually doing something like this because I thought it would be at least 5 more years down the road before we heard anything like this.

MrGuinea commented on Details Emerge on How Nintendo Accounts Will Work:

@Kirk Even with all this great news people still complain. First they complain about Nintendo not offering the same features as other companies. Now that Nintendo has announced everything we've wanted them to have, people are complaining that they should have more features than the other companies.

Yes, it should have been something that they had a long time ago. Am I complaining? No, because now we actually have will have it. They've been doing more now in the past few years than they have throughout the whole Wii cycle and early Wii U cycle. They fell behind in the past decade and now they need to catch up.

I have yet to really see any gameplay footage or trailers from this and I don't plan to see any. I have the special edition preordered and will plan to be playing this for most of my December. Should probably finish the first game though...

MrGuinea commented on Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Won't Have On...:

I wasn't expecting this game to have online multiplayer because these games are the best played locally, although it seems other evidence proves that this game will have online play. I'm still excited for this game because I love the animal crossing series and the reason I'm getting it is for the local multiplayer and the fun.

MrGuinea commented on Review: LEGO Dimensions (Wii U):

So it's basically a normal LEGO game only instead of getting the characters with studs, you have to shell out $15 to $30 to unlock them. I thought this was going to be different in some way but it's just an expensive LEGO game. I like all the other LEGO games, but until I can get this for 70% off, I'm going to stick with LEGO Worlds instead of spending $500 to play this game.

MrGuinea commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Fails to Clean Up in Jap...:

@ReshaSong I haven't played it yet, but it's basically the wheel of replayability. The levels are on the wheel and basically to clear the world you have to beat all the levels. Only you can't choose the levels, you have to spin the wheel and that's the level you play. It forces replaying levels you've already completed whether you like it or not in order to beat the game, and you may replay a level 10 times before getting to the last level in a world.

MrGuinea commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Fails to Clean Up in Jap...:

We all knew this was going to happen. Hopefully Chibi will reprise on the NX in 4 or so years with a new actual Chibirobo game just like on the GCN. It's a shame because it would have been a hit with a new HD Chibirobo on the Wii U but instead we got photo finder and this.

I would've rather them have ditched both of those games and used the combined budget and time to develop a good one for the Wii U. I don't know why this was the idea they came up with. Hopefully they realize that why this game sucked wasn't because of Chibirobo but because of the game he was apart of. The train derailed at photofinder and crashed off the mountain side at ziplash.

I'm still catching up from the restocks and these new ones are all coming out way to fast for my wallet to catch up. I got this one since its exclusive, and I'll get the Mii fighters and AC festival and that will have to be it till February to let my wallet breathe a little. Especially since I'm also getting the Xenoblade special edition.

MrGuinea commented on Rumour: Data Miner Discovers Three Empty Chara...:

We already knew there would be 3 more characters because it was announced at E3 and they're going to be most if not all ballot characters too. I understand E3 sucked this year but I thought most people watched the smash direct before it. People also thought the ballot had ended back in June when they thought Ryu was going to be a ballot character. So maybe people are just really bad at retaining information.

MrGuinea commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Could Possibly be the La...:

@rdrunner1178 Finding the gc version is rare now unless you want to spend $60 online for it, so an HD remaster would be awesome. I haven't played the first one, but I played the PP one and that was fun, just giving me a small taste of what the first one was like.

@jmbarnes101 I agree. They should have stuck with what ChibiRobo is good at, and not turn it into platforming. It would be like making Pikmin into a platforming game. It's just not right. And we already have tons of Mario platforming so there's no need to try to turn another loved IP into platfoming just because it works for Mario. Chibi had his thing and he was good at it.
