I'm really surprised that they keep updating this. I'd like to see sales figures on this game. No one ever talks about Rusty's Real Deal Baseball anymore so this must be the free to play winner. I'd like to see an HD version for WiiU. Give me a Silver Pike II! No, a Platinum Pike!

I was underwhelmed by both but since Jeff actually had to hit his mark and the other guy just triggered samples.....Jeff wins. I can play rhythm with my left hand and trigger samples with my right. The programming is the difficult part of sampling. What I can't do is ever get a record to go back to the original point. It takes a lighter touch than I can achieve.

Noonch commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

This is barely news. The headline needs "sort of" added to the end. Seeing Nintendo evolve is like watching a baby grow up. This would be on par with saying Nintendo is potty trained because one time it poo pooed in the potty while it was strapped to a toilet all day.

I watched 3 hours or so today. It's something to do. I was convinced yesterday that Bill Trinen is either a big jerk or a robot. He looks evil. I'm still looking forward to Shovelknight even though $14.99 seems a little steep. I feel like it was a disappointment with no Metroid/FZero and Star Fox at LEAST a year away. I'm not into Smash or Zelda so it looks like I'll have to wait till next year.

Noonch commented on Talking Point: Just How Similar Are Tomodachi ...:

I have the demo and I think it stinks. I loved Animal Crossing, got addicted till I felt I'd accomplished all I could and got bored with it. They are very different. This is closer to a dumbed down version of The Sims in my opinion.

Noonch commented on Steel Diver Version 2.0 Delayed, Now Targeting...:

I really wish that they would just remove friendly fire from the game or make it damage the one doing it. I'm interested in seeing the new subs and the new multiplayer stage. I'd like to know what level I'd be on if it went over Lv 99.

@Obito_Tennyson

I can't even post it to Miiverse yet. It's sort of a dumbed down Sims. The demo is short. You buy food at the store, feed it to the Miis. They either like it or don't. You can decorate their homes with premade designs, they ask you questions. You can customize their voices a little bit. There just wasn't much happening in the demo to me.

I was one of the lucky platinum members who got the free demo. I thought the game looked uninteresting. I played the demo to completion (maybe an hour). I do not think I'll be picking it up based on the demo. A young child might enjoy it though.

Every week we line up with our money and our hopes. Every week we're disappointed. I do love Galaga ever since I played the cocktail table Galaga/Ms Pacman machine when I was a kid but I don't want it as the star release for virtual console. That said...pinball.

@unrandomsam

I think it does reward the better (skillful) players with leveling up and unlocking different subs. I think it's great and worth the $10. Nintendo is trying to make money off of it, nothing wrong with that. But a skillful player with a free sub has only a slight disadvantage, if any,over a paid user. Free to play, but not pay to win.

Do you ever wonder if Nintendo is intentionally trying to fail? I would love to see the faked enthusiasm that must exist in their meetings. Bring us the heads of the virtual console team! Then fire them.

Noonch commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

I don't mind having more games but this scares me: Iwata-san says, “The DS will be the main driver for profit for the next fiscal year and the firm will focus on more efficient marketing.” MAIN driver for profit? DS games? Iwata please..

@MixMasterMudkip I think that's his angle. It'll be met with more apathy. The 3DS has a higher install base so if he's looking to squeeze pennies he's barking up the wrong tree. Can you imagine anyone ever saying, "You know, I want a PS4...but Wii U is gonna get DS games so I'll buy that instead"?

Iwata says that DS games will drive hardware sales of Wii U by showing off the second screen experience....that's just stupid. There's right way and a wrong way to relive the glory days. Pretty sure this is the wrong way.

@Nareva
The hardcore AC people buy two so they can trade with themselves and acquire more goods. I never played one before New Leaf but it hooked me. It's addictive. Perfect pick up and play. I've got over 1200 hours in now...it's a little sad.
