OrangeSmoothie commented on Poll: Is It Time For a Fresh Alternative to th...:

I absolutely don't want a subscription service if that were to completely replace the ability to buy them individually. Even if it doesn't, they don't currently release enough titles that people really want often enough. When they do, they're things that people already own.

The change that really needs to happen is availability across platforms. The pricing would also be much more justifiable if it came with the assurance that you wouldn't ever have to buy it again. The idea that I have to buy a title twice to have it on Wii U and 3DS makes me nervous for the future when they move on to a new console. Will I have to buy those games a third time if I want to play them on that new console too?



OrangeSmoothie commented on Poll: Would You Buy Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U?:

I'm undecided just because the open world and GTA Online look incredibly fun (playing tennis, golf, flying planes and driving around in a HUGE open world, and causing general mayhem when you feel like it), but the story mode is probably not so much to my taste at all and therefore it may not be a good use of my money. So for me, if it came out on Wii U, it would definitely depend on what else there was for me to play at the time on Wii U or 3DS.

Ooohhhh pretty...

But really, if they were gonna change it for NA like some of you are suggesting, put more emphasis on the pirates. People are excited for the new AC cause I has pirates, and so does this game, so why not make them even more notable?



OrangeSmoothie commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Step Up for the...:

I don't love how this article makes it seem like Nintendo is doing us a disservice by not making more download-only titles. I feel like there are plenty of great things from third parties that wouldn't be able to get their games out otherwise. Nintendo, on the other hand, can afford to put every retail title both in stores and on the eShop. By doing this, it's advertising - a kid sees a box in the store and they say to their parents "oh I want that! buy it for me!" What reason is there for Nintendo not to put titles like New Super Luigi U at retail?

That's a beautiful device, but I just feel like Nintendo trying to make a phone is a death wish. Nintendo is too good at making games that don't make sense for a smartphone - leave Angry Birds and Plants vs. Zombies (both of which are fun, smartphone/tablet friendly games) to other developers and keep making us quality big console titles. I feel like once you get into quick, play-for-a-minute style games, you never quite go back.



OrangeSmoothie commented on Talking Point: The Download or Disc Dilemma:

This is a really weird subject for me, just because with a lot of things I am totally fine with the idea of digital-only copies, but with video games I'm still attached to the box and cartridges. The main disadvantage to this for me is just that I have to wait a day or two to get games instead of getting them right at midnight on release day.



OrangeSmoothie commented on Potential Wreck-It Ralph Sequel Should Have a ...:

I loved Wreck-it Ralph, and so did the rest of the 20-24 year-old college kids I saw it with. I don't buy a lot of movies, but I'm pretty sure I'll be getting this one. As far as Mario goes, I liked the passing references to him in the original film, but I think it would be harder to believably put him into the film since Mario and Fix-it Felix are so similar. As long as they take the references seriously as they seemed to in the first film though, I don't think I would have much to complain about.



OrangeSmoothie commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

It's a Zelda weekend for me - OoT 3D (I just started the Spirit Temple) and I'm finally getting into the Minish Cap from the ambassador program. And I've gotten back into my Animal Crossing town in anticipation of New Leaf so I will probably play at least a few minutes of that too.



OrangeSmoothie commented on Wii U Games Using Two New Controllers Being Co...:

It'll come eventually. They say they're listening to the players more, and if they're wanting more controller support, than it will come eventually.

I'm just glad they aren't showing us a bunch of colors this time and then only producing one at launch (or 2 if we're talking 3DS).



OrangeSmoothie commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Try to Recaptur...:

The distinction between hardcore and casual has become so polluted these days that it doesn't really matter anymore, at least not to me.

I just want Nintendo to provide something that is on par with (or surpasses) the capabilities of the Xbox360 and PS3. I don't want to feel like I'm missing out on games just because I don't want to buy another system and I still want to enjoy my Mario and Zelda games (which would be amazing on something with that kind of graphics capability).

I'm amazed that the N64 version was only 20 fps.

Honestly from what I've seen I have no complaints about what this game is going to be. I have a few wishes that would make it even better cough*full orchestral score*cough but they aren't going to do everything I suppose.



OrangeSmoothie commented on Rumour: Project Cafe Controller Contains a Camera:

This might be a little too much for me. I still don't know how I feel about the idea of a screen on the controller but a camera too?
I just don't want to spend $60+ for an extra controller, not to mention the system itself isn't gonna be cheap either at this point.



OrangeSmoothie commented on Review: LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean (3DS):

It's definitely not a challenging game, but as a Pirates fan and as my first lego game, I really enjoyed it. If you go in with an expectation that it isn't going to blow you away, you can get a lot out of this game. I'm halfway through doing everything 100%, and I'm loving it as a simple entertaining game.
