RantingThespian commented on Review: Paper Mario (Wii U eShop / Nintendo 64):

As much as I like Paper Mario, love The Thousand Year Door, and also enjoy the Mario & Luigi series, I still do not find any of the them to be a worthy sequel to Super Mario RPG.

I am still waiting for the true sequel to what is my favorite RPG of all time, and I hope Nintendo doesn't keep me waiting forever.

I have to be honest, I really do not get the hype. In fact, I am dissapointed that this is going to be Nintendo's focus for E3 this year.

For me, I want info on current games in development and announcements of new games and new systems (really hoping for a Metroid announcement!). I really could care less about people competing in a video game tournament.

Sigh, I guess I am just going to have to pass on E3 this year, and hope for something more exciting next year with the unveiling of the NX.

I hope they announce a new Metroid (FINALLY!!!) and a new 3D Super Mario game (in the style of SM64/SMG . . . hopefully more like SM64).

I would also love a new F-Zero and a true sequel to Super Mario RPG . . . but I am not holding my breath on those 2.

This is how I think it should work:

  • all virtual console games are available on a server
  • you have the option of playing them directly off the server, or download them to your Wii U / 3DS
  • all saved files are stored on your Wii U / 3DS
  • you would then pay a monthly subscription service of about $15-$30 to access the games.


RantingThespian commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

I'm having the same problem. It just goes to a black screen, and then returns to the Wii U menu. No error message or anything.

This is very troubling since I was really looking forward to the Metroid Prime Trilogy, and there is no way that will fit on my Wii U. I hope Nintendo can fix this issue, pronto.

These are all ones that I know of (excluding the Wii remote and nunchuck support)

  • The graphics for 1 and 2 are improved (upgraded texures, bloom lighting, fixed glitches, improved environmental effects, 16:9 aspect ratio)
  • The award system for 3 is incorporated into 1 and 2
  • Faster loading times
  • Echoes's difficulty is slightly lowered
  • Fully incorporated 4-person-local-multiplayer based off the version from Echoes
  • Ability to unlock the Metroid Fusion suit (that was originaly only unlockable by linking Fusion on the GBA and Prime on GC)
  • New unified start menu
