@liljmoore it could be your cable, I am also playing gc games on a 50“ 1080p TV using an RGB cable, and thou they still aren't the best, they aren't that bad looking. The other way round that issue is buy an original Wii (not the family or mini versions) and a Wii component cable (the 5 pin one) which plays cube and Wii games in 480p. Phantasy Star looks incredible



Psychomalone commented on Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Launches Exclusively O...:

I will definitely be getting this, I loved the Wii original, but due to hectic work schedules, family life and only owning one TV, I didn't get to play as often as I'd liked. Been holding off getting a 3ds until I knew when the new ones were getting released, turns out, it's just after my birthday lol



Psychomalone commented on Nintendo 64x64: Blast Corps:

Definitely one of my favourite n64 games, frustratingly hard at times, but always mental, would love another crack at this, shame it's by rare thou, as it's not likely to ever show up on VC



Psychomalone commented on Data Says - Choose Squirtle in Pokémon Red & ...:

The very first time I played red, I transferred the other 2 starters from blue anyway, so it didn't matter. On a normal play thru thou, I'd choose Squirtle, because there weren't any decent water types until much later in the game. Finally, correct me if I'm wrong, but in red/blue Charizard (despite being able to learn Fly) remained a single type, it was only in gen 2 (maybe yellow, I'm not sure) that he gained the flying type



Psychomalone commented on If You Liked the Latest Super Mario 3D World T...:

Can't wait, thought bros u was good, but it wasn't a classic, and thou I was hoping for super Mario universe, this still looks the business. Still think running up the flag pole with the cat suit is cheating thou lol

Not that I won't be doing it every opportunity I get off course



Psychomalone commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

@K1LLEGAL dungeon keeper was my favorite game on pc, way back when, I also played the original gta around the same time. However, as a pretty much exclusive Nintendo gamer for the last 20 yrs or so, I missed the early 3D versions of gta, and the Wii U is my first real HD gaming experience. I am a father in his 30's too, and like many of the commenters above, I simply don't have the time to game like I used to.
While it would be nice to see games of this magnitude on the Wii U, I don't feel aggrieved, cos I wouldn't buy it anyway.



Psychomalone commented on Bethesda: The Time For Convincing Publishers A...:

It does make me wonder how much influence these devs actually have thou, for example, just look at the controllers for both xbox and playstation (past & present) sure they've gained extra gubbinz with each generation, but they're essentially the same tried and tested design (which i speculate had some influence from the devs "if u make the same control, it'll be easier for us to make annual copies of same generic fps") whereas nintendo is the only one brave enough to try something different each time, in the hope of giving each console unique experiences



Psychomalone commented on Nintendo 2DS is Actually Made With Just One Sc...:

I don't like the fact it doesn't have a hinge, but I do think it's gonna sell. If it wasn't the case that my wife and daughter already have 3ds' i'd probably just got one of these for them, as neither use or like the 3d function anyway



Psychomalone commented on The Pokémon Company Lays Down The Law On Chea...:

I remember it being an issue in gen4 GTS, especially with highly prized Pokemon like shiny and legendary ones (or both at the same time in some cases). I got hacked shiny versions of dialga and palkia, both at level 1 (this was after the release of heart gold and soul silver, where you got access to one of these at level 1, so didn't seem too far fetched at that time)



Psychomalone commented on Time: Nintendo Is "Stumped" By The Wii U GameP...:

5 words.... Monster Hunter Off TV Mode. As without that feature, I simply wouldn't get to play it, as I don't play games in front of my kids that they aren't old enough for. Plus my wife can still watch her soaps while I'm pounding a few Rathian...



Psychomalone commented on Feature: The Humble Origins of Animal Crossing:

@Lasermaster123 harvest moon oftens draws comparisons with animal crossing, but they are very different. Hm pits you against the clock, trying to get your daily chores completed so you can do other things. AC doesnt expect anything fron you. You're time is you're own, and you'll often find yourself catching bugs well into thw early hours of the night, especially during summer



Psychomalone commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2013 - Sum...:

The first party titles obviously appeal most, but in some ways, i hope they don't come out too close together, i just don't have the budget for too many gsmes these days, and lets not forget, theres still the 3DS gems that'll be out by the end of the year



Psychomalone commented on Out Today: Xenoblade Chronicles (North America):

I'm pleased that NA has finally got Xenoblade, I got my copy ba week after its European launch, and although I don't get to play it as often as I'd like, its still the best game on the Wii, yes even better than skyward sword! I just wanted to say that this artbook wasn't available for our launch! But our limited edition pack (with the classic controller pro) came with a red control
