NaturalGus commented on Video: What Could Super Mario Galaxy Look Like...:

i feel the wind waker hd was awesome but not a significant leap since the standard def graphics were fantastic to begin with. same thing.with mario galaxy. running galaxy in 480p has pretty much felt like HD on that game anyway. what i WOULD like to see is an HD remake of Mario 64 or Ocarina of Time. Look to the N64 for games that are in dire need of an HD treatment, not the wii or gamecube, those are already ok

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

you know what? this article does make a few good points but i still disagree. not in a confrontational fanboy way, but in a sense of perspective switch. the way i see it; if a company decides to delay the wii u version then that means they wont be rushing an unfinished product and want to polish it enough to exploit its full potential on the platform. that, to me, says that they have some sort of confidence that the extended amount of work will be worth it and that it will move units. if they didnt care they would either pull out entirely or push it out without adjusting it to adapt to wii u's specs. So in conclusion, i dont think the question is whether or not major third parties departures hurt the system, it is whether or not other third parties will invest the kind of time ubisoft is willing to invest to make sure they push a quality product.

NaturalGus commented on Nintendo Patented an "Illumination Device" for...:

But microsoft was able to sucessfully patent illumiroom... i mean im not sure how patents work, but i thought if it already existed or was too similar to something that already existed, the patent wasnt awarded. Did microsoft buy it from Nintendo like sony bought PlayStation? Or did microaoft patent it firsr preventing nintendo from going forward?

NaturalGus commented on Nintendo of America Offers Stock of Refurbishe...:

thats not a good enough deal. For $319 Walmart has a brand new 32GB system (not refurbished) that comes with new super mario bros u and new super luigi u PLUS your choice of two more games and/or accessories, which is the bundle I ordered (my two games of choice were Assassins Creed 3 and Mass Effect 3. So for $69 more you can get 4 full games instead of the mnigame collections, as well as a new out of the box, never before touched, shiny console. mine should arrive by Thursday.

NaturalGus commented on Zelda Unveiled as New Smash Bros. Challenger:

So many unimpressive reveals. i could have sworn she was already a confirmed character. im still waiting for the cool NEWCOMER characters to be released. Rosalina is cool but villager looks as lame as jigglypuff. the wii fit trainer seems as cheap as mr game & watch, and megaman looks like an awesome addition. we need more ground breaking reveals along the lines of the mega man one. so far, the game seems yo be good, maybe as goos as brawl even, but i wont judge it before playing it. i just feel like either the game is just a brawl remix and not quite a new entry, or there is a WHOLE LOT theyre not showing us. So far 20 characters or so revealed, and still feels like an empty roster. must mean theres a hell of a lot more to the game than jist characters. maybe new modes new options new customization stuff or creations, or perhaps there is a 65 character roster or something crazy that will make it better than the previous smash.

NaturalGus commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Resilience Against W...:

the wii u is a great and powerful system with a unique approach to gaming. the current situation is only due to the lack of proper marketing for it. that is nintendos fault. instead of investing money into marketing and pushing software for the wii u, they are wasting money in marketing and pushing software for a system that doesnt need help, the 3DS. it doesnt need help, it is already a success. why not push the wii u? heck, i would do it for them. id do it for free. great marketing. how about a series of commercials joking about "how dumb you have to be to think the wii u is still a wii". a sarcastic line of condescending commercials to make people talk. in the style of smartdonkey 90s kids. whatever. thats just ONE idea, but come on, make some more wii u commercials instead of expecting it to push itself.

NaturalGus commented on The Wii U Nintendo Network Will Connect to EA'...:

I don't see an issue. Sounds like the account "set up" will be simple it simply accesses your Nintendo Network account and autofills it. Even if it doesn't, what's the big deal? it's only a one time set up with no fee. I'm not the type of gamer who looks for things to complain about. It's gaming, it's a service, it's an engine, you sign up, you set up, and you play. It would be a little unfair to EA if they were told tey had to do things differenty just becauase it's a Nintendo system. I am 100% behind this online system. Let's not get lazy and complain about having to set up.

NaturalGus commented on Behold The Ungodly Union Of The Wii U Pro Cont...:

not a fan of the colorful button display. Maybe its a US thing, but I'd be psyched if they did the grey and indigo buttons instead, like the US Super Nintendo. At first glance this looks like a toy version of an XBox controller. The idea is in the right direction, but I'm not entirely sure if it is what it needs to be yet.

NaturalGus commented on Want to Know Why Rayman Legends is a Wii U Exc...:

i wasnt a big fan of rayman at all until i played origins on te wii. But in regards to the Wii-U's specific mechanics possibly resulting in lack of 3rd Party support, I sincerely doubt that. See, in my point of view, The Wii U is not JUST about the gamepad. It has next generation graphocs, HD, and a pro controller which gives it the ability to downgrade itself as much as it needs to in order to match other consoles. The gamepad isn't a mandatory tool, from what i understand. I personally believe it is a nice addition and would not be at all disenchanted by a game that uses it only to display the game's logo on it as you play. I think if consumers want to play a game that doesnt require it, they can still do so without a pro controller.

NaturalGus commented on Reggie Promises Steady Stream Of Wii U Consoles:

I don't see anywhere in this article, Reggie promising a steady stream of anything. He simply dodged the subject and said his job is to ensure there is high demand. High demand doesn't mean high supply. As a Nintendo fan, I am genuinely scared that some of us will be left out for a long time.

NaturalGus commented on Nintendo announce Nintendo Network Premium:

I hope there is no membership fee for Nintendo Network. That would suck!
Online Membership fees are what convinced me to never get an XBox.
PSN, however, I can respect. Hopefully Sony and Nintendo can get the videogame back to business as usual offering great games without a catch or hidden fees.
If executed correctly, Microsoft will have no choice but to follow suit. Unless they want XBox to go the way of the Dreamcast. But as a gamer, even I don't want to see that. I just want all systems to offer a free online experience. We're already paying a monthly fee for our internet service, so let's not charge for Nintendo Network, please, let's just NOT.

NaturalGus commented on WWE 13 Won't Wrestle with Wii U:

well, wwe games are all the same. i have SvR 2009, 2010, and 2011 and also wwe 12, reason being i am a wrestling fan, but i have not seen a significant change other than svr2011's backstage freeroaming which was removed from wwe 12. i'll probably but wwe 13 for wii, but its no big deal if it is not on wii u. its just a repeated game with what should be DLC added to each "year"

NaturalGus commented on Bing Gordon: Nintendo's 'On Track' to Primaril...:

the day Nintendo stops making consoles will be the day I stop buying consoles. Nothing is impossible, but it is highly unlikely. It is very interesting to think about, as is the thought of "what if Sega or Atari made a new console today?" interesting.
Never say never, but do say highly improbable.

NaturalGus commented on Feature: Retro Console Launches - NES:

they should make Wii U commercials that seem retro like the NES commercials. i mean, sure make new and appealing commercials for today's young gamers but also have some commercials with the old school feel and the announcer talking about the power of the console while we see some amazing grapgics and some kid with a bad haircut playing like his life depends on it. that would bring nostalgia!

NaturalGus commented on Ubisoft Announces Avengers Game for Wii U:

movie-based games, and superhero-based games have a history of suckage on every Nintendo console ever, so this might be one of those Wii U games we end up ignoring... unless it becomes the exception like the Batman Arkham series. Only time will tell

NaturalGus commented on Rayman Legends is Coming to Wii U, Supports NFC:

looks like NFC integration is a good idea. plus four Wii U tablets used at once contrary to popular belief. graphic wise it seems very current gen but it is only a youtue video of a WIP so let's see how the finished product looks :-) i' cant wait till E3 so we can get our fix

NaturalGus commented on New Super Mario Bros. 2 to Kick Off Retail Dow...:

like it or not we are at the end of an era and trying to predict what will work best for the next generation is still a lot of guesswork. Nintendo is not known to "follow" any trends, they innovate and they set trends for others to follow. so having both digital downloads and physical media is a great way to test the waters. purists might oppose at first, such as myself, but this is how Nintendo always does it: They drag the videogame industry kicking and screaming into the next generation and we all love it once we experience it.

what if instead of announcing about things we know are in the works, they actually give us some news instead? like any new ip's being worked on, or anything new we dont yet know about? i dunno like new feature or new game or something? any chances of nintendo bringing back star tropics?

NaturalGus commented on Feature: Super Mario on Wii U - Crowd Pleaser ...:

while that means no Mii's for Mario 4, it doesn't mean no Mii's for "new super mario bros wii u" i strongly feel they should be two different games. or 3 different games if we consider an entirely new fully 3D adventure.. but i have to remind myself that i'm just wishing.

NaturalGus commented on MDK2 Dev Will Never Develop for Nintendo Again:

sounds like someone didnt review their contract prior to signing it... next time read thoroughly, ask for any revisiones to the contract that you might think are more reasonable, and then, ONLY then release the game on their platform. don't make hasty uninformed decisions and then complain about it later. why is it that you don't see other companies complaining about the amount of units before payment or any of that other nonensense. keep your mdk to yourself, the world will manage to continue with or without it somehow.

NaturalGus commented on Feature: Super Mario on Wii U - Crowd Pleaser ...:

I sure hope this isn't the rumored "Super Mario 4" title. Honestly, one cannot showcase the power of a console with a side scrolling game, regardless of it having 3D graphics. The best thing to do with Mario for Wii U is along the lines of a Super Mario Galaxy game that does NOT involve rounded worlds like that. Maybe a blend between Mario World, Mario Galaxy, and a bit of Mario 64. Some Mario 3 power ups are more than welcome of course. But, I still believe "Super Mario 4" should be 2D title entirely, with brand new power ups but keeping in the same line as the first 3 mario's... Take a good look at what Capcom did with Megaman 9, or what Konami did with Contra Rebirth and Castlevania Rebirth.
