OneBagTravel commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

Not to sound over dramatic here but once Wooly World and Mario Maker come out in NA should I expect any new Wii U games? Zelda is still a maybe based on the little i've seen of it and Star Fox to me isn't a definite purchase either.



OneBagTravel commented on Nintendo Seeks Improvement at E3 2016, Though ...:

I don't think anyone is looking for Nintendo to display idea concepts at E3. If they only wnat to show near to release games, why did they show 4 titles that didn't release until a year+ in 2014 like Zelda U, StarFox concept, Wooly World, and Mario Maker?



OneBagTravel commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Asks for Fan Trust With Metro...:

Yeah Reggie, you're not getting WHY fans are upset. It might look like Metroid, the UI and controls might look identical to Metroid Prime. But it's not a Metroid game. Even from the 40 minute play sessions we saw at the Tree House demos. This isn't the game fans want.

For every time Reggie gives the Wind Waker excuse, I can give him another big change in a franchise that was a disaster. For example The Legend of Zelda on CDI. Granted Nintendo had nothing to do with it but they handed off their IP and it definitely went into a new direction.



OneBagTravel commented on The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes Director...:

You're role playing as a male character. Just like how I'm role playing as a female Samus when playing Metroid.

Why every game needs gender option to appease the SJWs of the world is just ridiculous. Go be outraged somewhere else.



OneBagTravel commented on Analogue Nt Starts Shipping To Buyers, Pitched...:

The article doesn't do a very good job of explaining what I'm actually buying. It's an NES that runs Famicom games, great. Is it running it on native hardware? I see more output ports, graphics chip is handling that? Or is it all custom chips?



OneBagTravel commented on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is Hittin...:

I played the 3DS version recently and found myself thinking "this isn't as great as it used to be". For its time it was epic. But it's got some clunky story elements and pacing problems. Where as I can still play LTTP any given day without issue. I know my opinion is in my minority but I just wish people would take off the rose colored glasses and critique the game for what it is.



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

My guess is that the reason we're not seeing a lot of up and coming games for the Wii U is that they've put their heavy hitter dev teams on the NX. Sad really, cuz the Wii U probably has another 2-3 years left in it. I'll still be playing it well after its death. It's a really great system with plenty of awesome games.

Sad to see them drop support so soon. I mean we're getting some games but for the next year it's pretty dry.



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

Oh the drama.

People just need to know that you can't mess around on Miiverse. It's not Reddit, it's not 4chan, it's not any other type of social networking. They're very strict. People just get upset with that. Use it as it was intended TBH.

Edit: @night you sound insufferable. Good luck on Miiverse.



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

The tilt controls interest me but not the "aim via the gamepad" mechanic. I want to play in 3rd person on the tv but would like to aim similar to Splatoon. Who wants to look at a small screen like the Gamepad to play the next Starfox game?



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

I got Dream Team on my 3DS for free and I'm struggling to play through it like all Mario RPG games (except the SNES/Square one). I find them to be way too wordy and I instantly lose interest in the story when two characters are yapping about nothing for 5 minutes. Just when the pace of the game kicks up, they put on the brakes with more campy dialog.

tl;dr Nintendo RPGs have a pacing problem.



OneBagTravel commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

Gearbox, the company that made its success by just copying games and releasing expansions? Oh please tell me more about branching out LOL

We need Nintendo to be Nintendo because everyone else is just trying to copy each other.



OneBagTravel commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda...:

So they show next years game at E3 2014 yet they won't show a next year game at E3 2015? By that logic Zelda U will be a 2017 game?

I'm just glad they're having to play damage control. Maybe they won't make this same mistake twice but it does feel like they do this every other year or so.



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

Only games I imagine myself buying in the next year and a half from Nintendo are Mario Maker and Wooly World.

The title of the article should read "Cheer Up, There Are Currently Exciting Games to Play". In other words, the current games out now are great and I'm still playing those.
