MrGuinea commented on Netflix Update Goes Live on Wii U:

@Not_Soos I THOUGHT Nick had shows on there! My memories of watching spongebob on netflix were real!

In other news, I actually called their support about this when I first got my Wii U about having profiles. They said they were working on it (this was 2 years ago).

MrGuinea commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

Nintendo has been doing a lot with indie devs lately which I like. Usually those games are far better than what larger 3rd parties can muster up and they are much more unique. I think since those large 3rd parties have deserted them, Nintendo is trying to gain more indie respect. Which would then make sense for them to go a no optical drive route for the NX since most indie developers release on the eshop.

MrGuinea commented on Minecraft: Story Mode is Heading to Wii U:

I'm happy that this is finally coming to the Wii U. Seems a lot of smaller developers are porting their games over to Wii U lately with sometimes more features than it started with. If these smaller companies can do it you'd think that larger ones would as well (they shall not be mentioned here).

MrGuinea commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

I'm still just waiting till next E3 when they actually show off the stuff. This kind of stuff is still food for thought on the possibilities of the NX but know one knows what it actually is except for Nintendo themselves right now.

MrGuinea commented on Ubisoft Announces Just Dance: Disney Party 2 I...:

@BinaryFragger @gatorboi352 Typically speaking, the people who enjoy games don't like the popular franchise "Just Dance". If you were waiting for a cool new video game and got Just Dance I know you wouldn't be excited either. Most Nintendo fans are gamers not dancers. So when all of the hardcore games are taken away, and all that's left is this dancing game, naturally, you can see why many would be frustrated. It'd be the same way if it was for PS or XBox

@Mahe 0.5 million were on the Wii U, whereas ZombiU sold almost 0.9 million. I'd rather have a half***ed zombi2 that sells 0.5 million than another just dance.

This is awesome. This is the first pokemon game I'm actually excited for. I'm still on crystal for the handheld versions so I feel like I have to play all the rest before getting any new ones. With this I can just jump right in though!

MrGuinea commented on Video: Super Mario Maker Contains Secret Fly S...:

@Kirk
If you recall, the first Super Mario Bros. had none of what you are talking about. So to say that it's missing out on those features is incorrect. This MarioMaker is a game to create levels based upon the first Super Mario Bros. so it IS a full mario maker. You can however play with updated graphics, but if you put in the new things like you said it would be incompatible with the older graphic styles as new animations/sprites would be required. It would be like trying to create a Legend of Zelda maker by using Skyward Sword as a baseline. If they were to create one they would most likely use the original Legend of Zelda 2D style and make it 3D from there.

So, overall this DOES have everything of what made the first mario game special plus a little more. It might not have all the features after that game that made the other games special, but it has features that make MarioMaker itself stand out.

I'd like to see those extra features in later updates if possible, but what they've created is something in itself magical.

MrGuinea commented on Video: Here's How Zombi Shapes Up Against The ...:

@rdrunner1178 It's not that they lost money, it's that they didn't make as much as they wanted to on it. That's why I've been not liking these large companies because all they care about it shifting units instead of putting enjoyable games out to everybody like smaller devs try to do.

But aside from that, I don't mind ports but the fact with this one is that they are just trying to get some more money out of it. They would never do this if this was the other way around.

And I'm actually surprised the graphics look so similar. It looks like they added more light which seems silly considering darkness is the whole atmosphere of the game. But the Wii U actually does have great graphics aside from what everyone thinks.

MrGuinea commented on Review: Sanatory Hallways (Wii U eShop):

Devs could really have some interesting fun with this kind of concept. It's a shame a lot of these concepts won't be full leveraged in the wii u's life cycle and the biggest breakthrough will be "off screen play".

@Kaze_Memaryu it sounds like you may just have a thing against smartphones, in which case this isn't the place to rant about how bad they are. If you're worried about being controlled by them you shouldn't even be on the Internet because you realize they can track you through computers too right?

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Not Looking To Churn Out Yearly Seque...:

The only thing I dislike is the rehashing of all these mario games. They could work on title like FZero, Kid Icarus, Battalion Wars, Metroid, Ice Climbers, Balloon Fight, or heck, even new IPs like Splatoon! I don't want another mario sports game, or the renewal of a mario game that's just a few years old when there's plenty of older IPs that could use an update.

Overall, I think this is a good idea as long as they don't spread their teams too thin and can't develop new games.

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo: Wii U GamePad Is The Only Real Innov...:

They didn't market the gamepad at ALL. If they would have maybe people wouldn't have taken almost a year to realize the Wii U was a different system than the wii. The main games I can think of that used it the best were ZombiU, Pikmin, and NintendoLand. All other games may have used off TV play or the touch screen but how was that different than pointing and clicking with the remote? The HD graphics were enough but when the main selling point isn't a selling point we basically got an upgraded wii. Innovative ideas are what keeps nintendo from needing a graphic powerhouse system.

Kind of stinks that they are just now figuring out their own console after almost 3 years of it being out. If more games and companies leveraged it, it could have been a lot better than what it was. Especially since a lot of first party games will be missed this cycle that could have done something with it (battalion wars, fire emblem, metroid, zelda). I just hope they plan marketing BEFORE they release the NX, otherwise nobody will understand that either.

It seems like they've just gotten so big to where people just get one or 2 figures now. I was thinking about trying it out, but they just keep releasing new editions to where the old figures aren't compatible anymore.

MrGuinea commented on Capcom Continues to Go Big With a Monster Hunt...:

I played MH3 on Wii for over 400 hours right up till the servers went off. I'm still waiting on one coming to the Wii U (I didn't have time to invest in MH3U as there's not enough more content) and I don't have the new 3DS to play any of the handheld games (too hard to play to not have the second stick). Here's hoping they make a launch release for the NX if they don't!

I was interested in this until I saw it was by Adam Sandler. But like others have said, it's not video games and movies, it's sandler and movies. There have been good video game movies as other commenters have mentioned. Sure there are few of the many out there but there are some good ones.

MrGuinea commented on Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamer...:

@HollywoodHogan
It's for the exact reason I said why it didn't sell well. That and the launch didn't give much of an install base. But if you look at most reviews they complain about the slow gameplay and how zombies took too long to kill. Survival horror games have become run-and-guns for consoles these days so it honestly wouldn't surprise me if they made those changes.

MrGuinea commented on Zombi Reveal Trailer Suggests That Wii U Gamer...:

They probably made some changes to it, like making the zombies one hit kill with the bat, and placing ammo every few steps away. And they probably threw out the gamepad inventory screen and just gave you a bat, pistol and assault rifle to start so you'd never even need an inventory. They had to appeal to all those hardcore gamers on those systems after all.

@BLPs
Shouldn't you be getting back to the future marty mcfly? Lol but I agree. Everybody is saying they're doomed without even a hint at what the new console could possibly be. It's all based upon the wii u failure and "rumors", which is pretty much every other news story on here nowadays.

MrGuinea commented on Nintendo Quality Of Life Patent Applications A...:

Jeese, people go nuts over the simplest things. People are treating this patent like it's the actual thing. Of course it's underwhelming and boring because it's a PATENT. So unless you were planning on patenting something similar there isn't much to see here because more rumors that spiral out of control. I read the first sentence, the middle sentence and looked at the pictures. I'm not looking to far into this thing lol.

If Nintendo created an open world pokemon MMO on the next console and had a dedicated team for it over the whole lifetime adding more pokemon, quests, and towns this would be an awesome game. Especially with graphics like that. I don't play pokemon that much but a console version like that would get me back into it.

The environment in Pikmin 3 was absolutely stunning. I spent at least an hour just looking around before actually playing. I have yet to play the gamecube version of chibirobo, but if this was a Wii U release I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Once again, we still know nothing concrete about the NX, yet people claim everything is a fact and how "they aren't going to buy it until they've seen it"....well duh. I wouldn't buy something either if I didn't see the thing.

Just quit commenting on all these rumor articles that "you're not going to buy it" because if you're here and commenting, obviously you're still interested. Otherwise, you'd ignore all of this and just sit tight until E3 next year when they ACTUALLY show it.

MrGuinea commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

The Wii U pro controller is their best controller yet in terms of "regular" controllers. But when the gamepad is actually used the gamepad is awesome. I've played countless consecutive hours of Zombiu while using the gamepad and I can say that my hands/arms never got tired while using it. I think people would like it more if it was used better, rather than just off tv play. Then I can understand not wanting to use it.

MrGuinea commented on Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confir...:

Ubisoft: "ZombiU didn't do as well as we hoped so were not going to create a sequel or add anything to it."
ditches sequel and starts porting the game without the controls that made it good in order to sell more on other consoles

Why make a whole new game that will cost money when you can just try and re-release an old game for a few more dollars? I liked Ubisoft, but it's this kind of stuff that make me hate these large development companies.
Since they're re-releasing the first one, I would say the best we can hope for is a real Zombi2 sequel down the road, but it'd probably be for PS4 or Xbox one anyways since they stopped developing games for the Wii U. Or maybe the NX? But that's an even bigger longshot.

MrGuinea commented on Limbo Looks Set to Finally Arrive on the Wii U...:

Played and beat a long time ago after it came on sale for being out for a year. This would have been great when it came out, but it just stinks how many times devs skip Wii U and then come back to it if they "have time". Either release it within a month or two or don't complain about poor sales unlike some other large game companies whom we don't speak of anymore.

MrGuinea commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Won't Be As Powerful As Pl...:

I'm not going to say anything bad about the NX yet because there is NO INFORMATION KNOWN ABOUT IT!!! People are already saying how it will be worse than the Wii U, how it will be lackluster to the current gen, how there will be no games for it. You guys have no info on the NX so why is everybody hating it already?

P.S. If being able to see 5 beads of sweat on a character means it's a great console, then this generation of gamers, aren't not at all even close to being gamers.

So Metroid, Zelda, FZero, and Kid Icarus for NX launch plus 3rd party support that's not just ports from last gen? I am optimistic about them, but like others said, I'll have to see it to believe it, because Nintendo has their work cut out for them on this launch.
