Nintenjoe64 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles Coming to 3DS in Japan:

I think I am content with my Wii version but I would buy an HD Wii U version (at a budget price) and am half hoping they include the original in 'X' like they did with Bayonetta. I won't hold my breath though.

If they bring a Xenoblade themed 3DS bundle to the West I will get one....

I have been wondering (for about 7 years) when they would make a Mii online-FPS. I even thought paintball would be more their style as it is a good way to avoid the need for graphic violence.

@rjejr last good new IP Pikmin? What about Wii Sports/Fit, Disaster, Battalion Wars, Pandora's Tower, Geist, Baten Kaitos, Xenoblade, Endless Ocean and CAPTAIN RAINBOW!!!! The last one was a joke but all the others are relatively new and I enjoyed them.

Nintendo should start putting games that were cancelled late on in development on the VC like Starfox 2! Either that or just bring at least one SNES game per week. I can't complain too much though because I have a VC backlog of at least one game per system.

I think 2 screen gaming is good. It takes a little while to get used to for each game but it definitely added to the atmosphere in Zombi U (I personally think this would translate well into any genre not just slow paced horror) and would definitely be able to enhance most games of reasonable complexity.

My biggest fear is that Nintendo will abandon the gamepad at the end of the generation with only a couple of genuine proof of concept games like they did with the Wiimote+.

I only put PC because I won't go a generation without wasting a few months of my life to CS:GO and Civ 5. I can't see me buying either of the other consoles despite owning all 3 last gen. The main reason I won't need another console is that the selection I already own and the upcoming games are enough to last me the whole 5-7 years. The Wii lacked Action-Adventures and shooters last gen but it had some of the best shooters and action adventures I have ever played. The Wii U pretty much covers all my gaming needs. It's up to next-gen to show me something I didn't know I wanted but I just can't see them doing it without there being a PC version.

Nintenjoe64 commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (Europe):

If I complete Golden Sun before Thursday I need to download Fire Emblem while it's on offer. Then I should really buy all the Ubisoft games on promotion because they'll double in price soon. Might get Steamworld Dig if I complete Fire Emblem before Shovel Knight is released. So many games, so little time.

I would be sad if I thought Advanced Warfare was going to be different to the last few CoDs but the multiplayer gets worse with every game and the single player is only good for the set pieces. They had it right with Modern Warfare and should have left it like that until they were able to make a significant jump in quality or add something new (I know there have been some good things added in the last 7 years but hardly enough for 7 £50 games). I would buy a Wii U version of the Modern Warfare Trilogy before I bought any of this new laser gun BS.

Nintendo needs to make a decent FPS and actually promote it, not Splatoon, Splatoon is its own thing. They pretty much invented the 'realistic' console shooter market by publishing Goldeneye and have since abandoned it.

The prices are too high but a SNES/GBA RPG will last me weeks and only costs as much as a pint and a half of lager in London. I think they need to encourage multiple purchases with 'buy one/two get one free' offers and have steam-like sales on the stuff nobody is buying.

I am pretty sure Sega must have some kind of retro console plan by the way they have never really looked into bringing a significant number of Arcade, Saturn or Dreamcast games to consoles. If Nintendo could get Dreamcast and Saturn games on the VC, there'd be a revival. Some of the DC games would look incredible on the gamepad and the Saturn has dozens of games I could never get a reasonably priced PAL copy of.

I don't really need any of those except Waverace as I have all the other originals except Metroid which I have individually. I voted Metroid Prime Trilogy but only if they added some online features.

I'd like to see them retry Geist. It was let down by a few technical issues that the Wii U could sort out, not to mention that it is a pretty unique game. Like a post above me, I would prefer they went back further and maybe remade some NES and SNES classics in a modern 3D perspective. Games like the 2D Zeldas would still play well despite being based on relatively flat worlds.

Piracy is bad but would probably put an extra 5 million Wii Us in circulation!

I hope they haven't made it easily available knowledge to hack MK8 because MKW online was a joke when the cheaters were in town. Nintendo need to add a 'kick cheat' button or just a report button.

Ultra Street Fighter IV should be on Wii U without doubt. It's annoying to see so many titles getting repackaged for other consoles where they're not going to sell in particularly huge numbers while being missing out the console that actually needs a Streetfighter/Tomb Raider/GTA/whatever game.

I think a TV show that followed the stories that you learn about as you play the games would be pretty good and might not even feel like a weak attempt at jumping on the Walking Dead bandwagon but this could be a new level of terrible not even seen in the films.

I went for Wii Fit U (possibly on my own). I don't think I can go back to running and playing football without a fit meter to show me how hard I tried.

The luge and skiing are two of the most fun minigames I've ever played and it's absolutely shocking Nintendo haven't made good use of the balance board for a proper Skiing/Winter Sports or a 1080 reboot. I've not heard great things about the Mario and Sonic ones but should probably try it before passing judgement.

I still have the occasional game of BO2 but it was probably my least favourite CoD multiplayer ever. It was enough to make me avoid Ghosts. I might be persuaded by Advanced Warfare if it reviews and sells well on Wii U but would prefer them to make a Wii U exclusive Modern Warfare Trilogy. My favourite maps and weapons are still the original Modern Warfare. Although I think the franchise might skip Nintendo for another gen.

@stephenmunn I was joking. I know blowing was never actually meant to help but it always seemed to, even when tested in slightly controlled conditions such as trying a temperamental game up to five times without blowing and it didn't work til I blew in the slot. Even the within the last month, I got my SNES out, Top Gear didn't work so I blew into it and it worked after.
