Platypus101 commented on UK Retailer GAME Is Selling Captain Toad: Trea...:

@Peach64 that post did come off as negative, but I have my reasons... :) it's not that I would like anyone to be left out of great gaming, first and foremost. When vendors break street dates, many a time store employees will pick up a few said "pre-release" items and scalp them... Not a favorite. Also, if Nintendo was behind this, why not just make a statement like "Happy Holidays UK"... It would have been just as effective.

@BakaKnight Italians are not lazy, just smart. Breaking street dates is not cool. The only reason they did this was because they knew they had a hit on their hands and didn't want to get stuck with inventory after the holidays (once everyone is done buying for the holidays)... I wish they would fine the stores that do this. They didn't even bother to hide the fact that they were breaking date... Scandalous.

@Tsuzura ! :) holy cow... Only reason Im speaking up is, that a friend once tried that with target. They kept 50$ of the return... It's like returning sale items for full price (or trying to return two for one items for full price) they will give you the actual price you paid. ;)

Platypus101 commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:

I would say it's gonna flop, but let's be honest. Hollywood makes bad movies, (especially Sony) because Trolls watch 'em. Don't anyone get offended, we have all been part of the curiosity of what looks to be a promising movie with poor presentation (Mortal Kombat in my case) and paid handsomely for it (opening night in my case). Kids are gonna want their own bad Mario movie, so I'm sure this will get butts in seats. :( whether or not it's good.

I understand the disappointment that a lot of people seem to be voicing... They just got the ball rolling on Wii U eShop last year, and now that there are only two weeks left for promotionals, the pickings seem slim (seeing as that Novembers CN offers were rehashes of Wii offerings from less than a year earlier)... I hope @Sinalefa is right about them updating on Xmas ;) that would be a nice gift on Xmas morning.

@BaffleBlend you're still funny... Sustainability Is not really a business term... that a new-age hipster carp. People move on from media all the time... I find it funny that when a sequel doesn't do well, people immediately claim fail. As for losing the casuals as you call them, they'd are as you claim "casual", so like they did with Harry Potter, simply moved on. Does that mean that JK Rowlings not making a movie of her following stories is a failure? I don't wanna get into this.. Too long.

@BaffleBlend you are so funny... Nobody uses the word mistake when discussing the Wii... (Trust me, not even Wall Street) The Wii U, absolutely. But the Wii (weather you liked it or not) was a clear winner last Gen. ;)

@DESS-M-8 told you they were moving! :) but at this point, I am starting to believe they purposely (like the Gamecube Adapters) underproduced to see what demand was... Unfortunately, Nintendo is not known for reprinting much if anything :( I did want my own collection, we will see what happens for x-mas.

@AmazonianBeauty wait?what? ROFLMAO! I must have somehow tapped this instead of whoever the hell I was trying to respond too! LOL! Yes! You are 100% correct! Wait for the NN3DS... I'm not gonna say it... It's a stupid name. I would have even taken an old discarded name, like the revolution or something anything but...

@SkywardLink98 sorry sir, I did not respond to your comment, trying clarify myself... :P my statement was not at quantity is important... It's that everyone is claiming that the majority of playable games seem to be only on the other two consoles... True 7/10 of the top games are identical to each other (only real difference being one is Sony edition/whilst the other is XBOX1edition). Nintendo has different choices (with the exception of SL and DI) yes, everyone has great games, but how different is your collection compared to some one else? Why have two different machines if 75% of all games are identical to he next system? If you ask me, the smart bet would be to see who sold the most number of consoles and titles you like, and go with them (if you are looking to play against others/online) as that will give you the best of both worlds :)

@SkywardLink98 I agreee..l wholeheartedly! But.. For people saying to skip he Wii U this gen because a few of the vocal minority? THAT'S "trolling" (looking your way @AmazonianBeauty) th truth is, I have shown naysayers the Wii U, and after playing it, they bought one! I agree that Nintendo miffed this one, but there is no need for anyone to lose out on any of the great titles the Wii U has to offer (unless you want to part of the masses 15-20 years from now saying "I wish I had picked up a Wii U back in the day, so many titles I missed out on.") I speak from experience... I believed the negativity surrounding the Gamecube, now look at me, standing outside in the rain like the rest, clamong foR GC titles on my Wii U (which may not happen)... :(

@AmazonianBeauty LOL! There is no new console coming out for at least 2 years... The investment on a project of this scale is enormous! Everyone needs to stop whining about the seven games the Wii U does not have and look at the 9 games we have that don't exist on the other consoles. Do some research, check it out. You will see that in the top ten on both XB1 and PS4 seven of the ten games are multi plat... Not very creative.

Platypus101 commented on Parent Trap: amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

@DESS-M-8 I still believe that (at least on the U) Amiibo could match the popularity of either DI or SL... As long as adequate support (not skins or free nothings) and some sort of Mii-style game or nintendo-land DLC or something else to really make them pop. But it has to be both... With no real title for them to fit in (excuse me, not including which collection they are from) and just lame skins, this will fail.

@DESS-M-8 Brother, can I get a list of the words that set you off? Damn... I ended my statement with "In My Humble Opinion" with the Letters IMHO... I am not a videos sales analyst. So my opinion is based on what I see (or no longer see) on store shelves. If my experience is not valid you just say so.

Platypus101 commented on Parent Trap: Amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

@DESS-M-8 dude... Have you been to the store? They have a few models "Sold Out"! With the addition of the store limited models and the "oops I had 1 job and I screwed it up" versions with no legs/Paint/2 Right arms popping up for 10 times the MSRP on eBay? These things are doing well enough... Between collectors and the familiarity with the brand, they have potential to match SL or DI. IMHO

@k8sMum you are aware that NL is part of Gamer Network and is not affiliated with Nintendo? :) it seems many people feel anything positive (not just concerning the Wii U, but nearly anything these days) is a "forced" attempt at being positive, which is not always the case. If something good happens, why not be positive? After all, people jump at the chance to be negative when something bad happens... Just a thought ;)

Platypus101 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

@ACK actually... There were bad sectors on the drive for MANY of the consoles.., which only occurred after Smash save data. I still have my receipt (and my memory of a 20 minute long discussion with the repair guy)... :) What I was unaware of was the lack of physical repair shops around the states. I was lucky and only had to drive 30 some-odd miles and wait an hour for my unit.

Platypus101 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

I don't understand... His system worked fine, up until he accessed SSB... So, how is this "bricking" the system? Do we all not remember that the Wii version of this game had issues as well? I know, I had to take my Wii in for an "update" as SSB didn't work... :( if this happens due to people "shutting off the power during the save screen" well, you have been told on numerous occasions never to do that.

@thebigN if my "storage-paranoia" hadn't kicked in while making my decision, I would have gone the same route (as it is I picked up the 32gb model with an external 2tb HDD). I had a bad experience... :P the onboard memory?should have been swappable (only SSD? Sure.) 32gb is not quite enough. IMHO.

Platypus101 commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

@Shiryu I agree (concerning the "dance" titles)... I was on Uplay the other day and it asked me to choose my console; XBox1 PS4 or I only play Just Dance, which I cliked and took me straight to the Wii U site. :P

Platypus101 commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

@Jordie "Ubisofting" love it! we need to put that into he dictionary... Essentially building hype, postponing release dates until a more polished product (that was not in development yet) can be produced for the competing consoles, that were not part of the launch in the first place. Followed by company statements that since the original title didn't hold up too well against said competitors, THAT console was a failure. Jerks.

Platypus101 commented on This Mario Kart 8 Badge Set Brings Some Extra ...:

@sinalefa I thought the same thing! Believe it or not, they have only duplicated a couple of titles (I was PO'd with this months picks, so I did the research). Yeah Pilot Wings and Vegas Stakes are from the Wii Shop and were not available for the Wii U, yet. In a loose sense, they seem to be re-releasing old Wii shop titles (already offered as CN prizes) to the Wii U eShop :( not a good look Nintendo.
