NintyMan commented on Weirdness: T-Pose Result Screen Glitch Found I...:

This glitch has been around for quite a while. I tried to pull it off myself with the Wii Fit Trainer since it would look natural for her to do, and while I thought I could time it just right, it never happened.



NintyMan commented on Review: WarioWare Twisted! (GBA):

This is actually my favorite WarioWare! There's a lot of cool and funny microgames and minigames, the character stories are good, and there's a ton of unlockables. It really is a shame Europe never got the game, but hopefully the Wii U eShop might fix that.



NintyMan commented on Gallery: The Yarn Yoshi amiibo Is So Cute And ...:

I'll be getting the green one at least. My sister who's a bigger Yoshi fan will probably want to get all of them. They do look adorable.

I think what I'll do is display it somewhere besides my usual amiibo gallery. I'll treat it like a plushie that also happens to be an amiibo.



NintyMan commented on Masahiro Sakurai Confirms That Recent Super Sm...:

The word "several" sounds like there should be four at least.

I think the characters that might make it in are King K. Rool, Inkling, Wolf, and Shantae. Wolf wouldn't be based on the Fighter Ballot, or I really hope not! K. Rool and Inkling have had campaigns that are still going strong. And I've noticed that there's been a strong push for Shantae recently.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

I've gotten a couple of warnings before for spoilers, one for Super Mario 3D World and the other for WarioWare, Inc. Mega Microgames. The latter I could've seen, but the former was an instance I didn't understand at all.

So I admit that Miiverse itself can misfire now and then, but if this is supposed to crack down on trolls popping back up after bans, then good.

What Miiverse really should do is crack down on the communities behind the Miiverse stage in Smash, as there's been a lot of inappropriate stuff there.



NintyMan commented on Next Level's Super Mario Spikers Was Canned Be...:

Considering that Yoshi slamming the other one looks kinda harsh, I can see why Nintendo didn't like it. This isn't the same kind of violence that Smash Bros. or Zelda has; not at all. Nintendo didn't like that kind of violence in a sport like volleyball.

It's too bad to see this got cancelled. They could have just toned it down a bit, but then we probably wouldn't have gotten Punch-Out Wii, so whatever.



NintyMan commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

I just don't want Nintendo to rush out the NX. Let it be the best console it can be with a solid line-up of games at launch.

However, I don't believe it's going to be a powerhouse. Miyamoto made it clear in that same interview that Nintendo cares more about making the new console innovative and uniquely fun then just making the console bigger with prettier graphics.



NintyMan commented on Talking Point: E3 Highlighted Nintendo's Devel...:

Nintendo should announce NX at E3 2016 and it should release in November 2017. I'm not one of those who think NX will release next November as that would be rushing the new console and not only cut off the Wii U's days too short but also leave NX with not much of a launch lineup at all.

I don't know what would count as "smaller" games except that Wii U better still get more games next year and in 2017. It may not break records, but it better keep selling at least.



NintyMan commented on Next Level's Super Mario Spikers Was Canned Be...:

I still don't understand how attacking opponents would have worked in a game like volleyball, where you have to have your eye on the ball at all times. Spending a few precious seconds slamming an opponent might cost you a point. And how could you do that if the two of you are supposed to be separated by a net?! Could players have invaded each other's space and whichever side the ball landed, the point would go to the opposing team? Seems pretty chaotic.



NintyMan commented on Video: Enjoy Some Nostalgia With This Stylish ...:

Nice video. It's also nice to stir up hype for the game too!

Woolly World definitely seems to take the best of previous Yoshi games. The last statement got it right. "Everything you love about Yoshi in one amazing adventure!"



NintyMan commented on Hands On: Logging More Flight Time With Star F...:

I like that this game uses gyro controls similar to Splatoon, where I always use it. Ultimately, I think we're just going to have to play the game to know for sure that we like it or not. But I believe as this game gets shown more later this year that people's perceptions will turn out more positive. E3 only gives you a snapshot of what's to come of a certain game. Super Mario 3D World certainly comes to mind.



NintyMan commented on Exclusive: We Almost Got A Wii U F-Zero Create...:

Remember the E3 2011 conference when the theater onstage showed cool cutscenes of upcoming games like Kid Icarus: Uprising and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon? Now I can imagine the reaction if Captain Falcon's Blue Falcon sped into view and Captain Falcon himself uttered a catchphrase ("Show me your Moves!") and the crowd would have gone wild. That, coupled with the announcement of the new Smash Bros. would have made that E3 phenomenal for Nintendo.

So this is pretty sad, but at the same time, I just don't think F-Zero Wii U would have been that big of a success in the long run. The fans would definitely buy it, but would the average consumer? None of the F-Zero games were good sellers, and Nintendo is a business of artists, but they are still a business. I think Nintendo would revisit F-Zero eventually, but probably not until they're on good-enough footing that they could take the risk.



NintyMan commented on Nintendo Says That Star Fox Zero's Gyro Contro...:

This has been known for a while now. It wouldn't have made sense for them not to have gyro controls optional as almost every other Nintendo game that has it can let players turn it off. Star Fox Zero should be no different. In some games like Splatoon, gyro controls really help (at least for me) so I would try it when this game is out to see if it works for me, and if not, then switch to traditional.



NintyMan commented on Review: Yoshi's Woolly World (Wii U):

@Franklin: No, he should be in Mario Kart. He was even considered in Mario Kart 64, so he would fit much better there. Kamek sure has been in a lot of games lately!

That's too bad about the boss battles. Honestly, boss battles in Good-Feel's games have never been that impressive, even though they do such a masterful job with everything else.



NintyMan commented on Tablets Stole The Wii U's Thunder, Laments Shi...:

The innovation route certainly helps when you have had systems like DS and Wii, both of which were ahead of their time. It's true that Wii U wasn't ahead of the curve with its tablet-like interface. I personally have enjoyed Wii U very much because of its excellent first-party games, but there will always be those wanting Nintendo to make a powerful console, even though that high price point would be killer.

NX will definitely be interesting to see at next year's E3. Regardless how innovative it is, though; the games will always matter most.



NintyMan commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Retail Games of 201...:

Super Mario Maker for me, followed by Yoshi's Woolly World and Star Fox Zero. I'm also wanting to get Art Academy: Home Studio and Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash, so there's five games to keep my Wii U chugging the rest of this year!



NintyMan commented on First Impressions: Celebrating a Gaming Icon W...:

Watching this at the Best Buy event this year was extremely fun! It was fun just to watch other people play. The levels ranged from the crazy to the reasonable. My first level was Magikoopa Meltdown, which was essentially just a wild battle against a horde of enemies, mainly Magikoopas. The SMB3 goal box was tricky to get to as you had to touch it at just at the right place, as a box was in the way. Another level involved 8-bit Monty Moles underground, which I couldn't beat because of the inability to pick up Bob-ombs in SMB. I also played the underwater Wiggler level.

The rest of the time I just watched. The crowds engagement was enchanting! Super Mario Maker should be a major hit online and the level-sharing should be robust. September can't come soon enough!



NintyMan commented on Feature: Five Key Moments from Nintendo's E3:

This E3 wasn't nearly as bad for Nintendo as 2008; not even close.

It was still the right call for them to show and release the Smash Bros. DLC before the Digital Event. Super Mario Maker was clearly the biggest game highlight since it has increased almost everyone's hype levels for it immensely. Federation Force is a spin-off that came at the worst time possible, and I feel bad for Next Level Games as it will probably still turn out to be good knowing them. The swiftness of Iwata's response still implies that it was due to the negative reaction. The Treehouse did a much better job streaming this year compared to last.

Ultimately, I think people will get over it because of Nintendo Directs later this year. It's not like the old days anymore when you would learn about Nintendo news mainly at E3 and that was it. Those days are long gone. Nintendo can and likely will still announce more games later this year in Directs, and there's other stuff too like the Club Nintendo replacement and DeNA partnership as well. Miyamoto at one point sounded like Zelda U might show up again in a Direct later on, so such things will help restore in the long run.



NintyMan commented on First Impressions: Getting Into the Fold With ...:

Looking at the gameplay demos online, this game is definitely more Mario & Luigi, but there are enough new twists like using the third button for Paper Mario and the new Bros. attacks to make it different. I didn't even think about the enemies having their own levels. That could get interesting!

I hope to see more Paper Mario elements besides Paper Mario's moveset and the main characters in paper form, but time will tell. This is only just the beginning.



NintyMan commented on Super Mario Maker Will Allow You to Unlock ami...:

@JaxonH: I totally understand what you mean. It took more effort (and money) to get these amiibo, so I would like to have a nice bonus for going through all the trouble. At the same time, though, as rare as most amiibo are, everyone doesn't get a fair shot at getting the amiibo they want. In a perfect world in which every single amiibo was abundantly supplied, then there wouldn't be a problem. But it's still nice to get a cool bonus, so this can get complex.

As for people making levels so others can "farm" amiibo costumes, I can see that could be a problem as well, but hopefully all the other levels will crowd those out.



NintyMan commented on Super Mario Maker Will Allow You to Unlock ami...:

I think this is great even if they're only usable in Super Mario Bros. levels. Not only will almost every amiibo be supported, but everyone will get a chance to try them all out too if they play this game a lot. They're not necessary to have at all, but they can be used as part of a new level you can create that you might not have been able to make without it as far as the theme, so they still add to your game somewhat.

I wish Yoshi's Woolly World would do something like this, as many amiibo are compatible with that game.



NintyMan commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

People will get over it eventually. There's a decent load of games over the next half of the year and early the next.

There's five Wii U games that are must-buys or I'm just interested in, while for 3DS it's actually slimmer for me with Tri Force Heroes just being considered since I didn't get into Four Swords Adventures and M&L: Paper Jam is a must-buy, but not until next Spring. Federation Force I'll have to learn and see more about.

There will still be Nintendo Directs later this year that will announce more games too. Zelda U will be likely be shown in a normal Nintendo Direct at some point.



NintyMan commented on Gallery: Marvel At The New amiibo Which We Wil...:

They look good! July has the Kid Icarus amiibo, but September could be a busy month with amiibo for me with up to five possible ones.

Despite their rarity, Nintendo still makes a ton of money from amiibo all the same!



NintyMan commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

Considering he's only thinking about it right now, it would take years for it to be made and released, and the NX would possibly be out by then, maybe in its full first year. A new, traditional Metroid Prime not happening until NX makes sense then. That's a long wait for fans, but that's how folks like F-Zero fans have felt for some time!



NintyMan commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:

The desire to make a traditional Metroid Prime game is still there, at least, even if so dimly. It wouldn't be coming for a few more years, depending on when development starts. Looks like Metroid will be another wishlist item for next year.
