PatHawks commented on Poll: How Important is Dual / Second Screen Ga...:

@unrandomsam I think not being able to use the 3DS as a controller on the Wii U was a big mistake. Having a second screen only makes sense if each player has his/her own.

I think one of the coolest things that could be done would be turn based battle games (like Pokémon), where players select their moves on their own touch screen so the other player can't see. This, of course, isn't possible if only one player has a GamePad.

@unrandomsam YES YES YES!
Why is the screen on the 3DS only slightly different from the screen on the DS? Why does the GamePad have a slightly different screen still?
If they just doubled the resolution from the DS to the 3DS (and maybe made the top screen wider in addition, for a resolution somewhere around 640×384 instead of 400×240 for the upper screen), DS games would look a lot nicer on a 3DS.

It seems the 3DS and Wii U design teams also could have worked more closely together to come up with better cross-platform connectivity, à la the Vita+PS4.

PatHawks commented on Feature: Pokémon X & Y - What We Know So Far:

@allav866 I'm with you; it makes sense for Nintendo to release on the eShop at the same time as retail.

For all the people hoping for R/S/E remakes, is that really what you want?
It seems like FireRed/LeafGreen & SoulSilver/HeartGold were re-released because (at least at the time), those games included Pokémon that couldn't be captured any other way, and Pokémon from Gen I & II could not be imported into Gen III.
Now, if you own a Pokémon game from each generation, it is easy to migrate your dudes from Gen III to B/W/B2/W2. No remakes necessary.
amiright?
