retro_player_22 commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

Fast and chaotic just the way I like it. Definitely a perfect speed setting for Mute City and Big Blue. Honestly, at this point Nintendo could just make an entirely new cup call F-Zero Cup and I'll be okay with it, just include Port City, Sand Ocean, Red Canyon, and Firefield as the four tracks that accompany it.

Wow the whole world is against Nintendo, does this mean the world is not evil? I doubt it. It's all money people being crying about. As much as I think Nintendo needs to catch up with time, I really think most people just needs to shut up and enjoy what they had.



retro_player_22 commented on Super Mario 64 HD Triggers Surge Of YouTube In...:

Most of those videos are just people whining and complaining with gameplay footage running in the background. Nothing too sought out or creative. At this point you may as well just upload a bunch of playthrough and talk nonsense about other company or people or report news that are at least a day or two late and it'll give you traffic for your easy revenue. Just add names like AVGN, AngryJoe, TotalBiscuit, Pewdiepie, ReviewtechUSA, Gligar9vids, Jontron, Alphaomegasin, Pat the NES Punk, Nintendo rant, Sony rant, Microsoft rant, etc., to your video response or video topic and you'll get some traffic coming through.

Seems like a pretty promising 2D epic RPG, it's too bad the game never materialize even after Super NES passed it's lifespan. Heck even the Sega Saturn, PlayStation, GBA, DS, and PSP platforms (home to great 2D RPGs) were skipped or ignored. Whoever was trying to create this game probably gave up on life.

@abe_hikura Sony only owns publishing rights to Street Fighter V, not the Street Fighter IP in general. Street Fighter games and characters could still be made for other platform/game if Capcom so choose to allow it. This is just early screenshots, more characters will be reveal once the game gets closer to its release date.

@daveh30 Thanks Dave, as you can tell I have being away from Mario Kart for quite a bit. Hadn't play a Maro Kart game in-deph since MK64. Mostly from Double Dash!! to Mario Kart 7 had been just party time game for me so returning to play Mario Kart 8 in-deph again, I never realize they're still there.



retro_player_22 commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

For Super Smash Bros. 4, I think two more DLC characters, a few new stages and some extra costumes would be fine. For Mario Kart 8, I felt Nintendo could still add more to it if they want. Still love to see more new and retro course be recreated with the HD treatment and free DLC like 200cc mode is awesome. I remember Mario Kart 64 had a mode where you race all the courses in reverse. That would be a great addition as DLC for Mario Kart 8 too if Ninty is looking to get more dollars out of us. Also how bout some true battle mode arenas as well, really starting to miss those lately.



retro_player_22 commented on Weirdness: Street Fighter's Ryu is Now Being R...:

I love Ryu but if it's just his stage coming to Super Smash Bros. 4 then I'll be okay with it, I love all variations of his stage (his Alpha 2 and World Warrior stages being my top two favorites). As for Roy, bring him on. Also Nintendo translate his game (The Binding Blade) and released it for Wii U or 3DS VC soon, that would be nice too.

So Level-5 sell its soul to the devil by going mobile now. Guess they never were the creative talents I thought they were. I'm sure it's greed that they are after, not audience. They know that by going mobile they could nickel and dime their customers for every little piece of Fantasy Life they want. I'm sure the next thing they'll announce is that the game will be free-to-play with payment options the only way to get anywhere or anything in the game.



retro_player_22 commented on Video: Learn More About the SEGA Genesis / Meg...:

@OmegaPowerDX Though the Super NES console itself wouldn't be able to handle a Sonic Genesis port, with an added speed chip on the cartridge like their other game which had added chip inside, a Sonic Sega Genesis port may work on the Super NES. Only thing is Sega ended support for Nintendo system once their competition with the Super NES and N64 started to heat up which is why both system are the only two Nintendo home system in history not to feature any Sega games.



retro_player_22 commented on Mario Maker Japanese Website Points to Inclusi...:

Yeah adding Yoshi is good, if they really are all-out for this they'll included the cape, the boomerang and the frog suit in the game too alongside the veggies from Super Mario Bros. 2 as well. I mean c'mon they did it for Super Mario Advance 4, no reason they couldn't do it here.



retro_player_22 commented on Analyst Thinks Nintendo Is Already Winding Dow...:

What Nintendo did wrong with the Wii U:

  • Price is a bit expensive for a cheaper system
  • Launching the Wii U with 2 models instead of one, seems they didn't learn from Microsoft and Sony with the launch of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Launching a system with two models often confused consumers more than they help.
  • Being late in the HD media offering
  • Started practicing DLC
  • Terrible launch lineup
  • Lack of third party support, not enough third party partnership
  • Continuous censorship on some games
  • Continue to region lock consoles

What Nintendo did with the Wii U, we already seen with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Almost all the practice they had with the Wii U are mostly repeats of the last two gen system and because of that 3rd party refused to support it. Also because of that consumers refused to buy it not because it isn't a good console but because the offering other than Nintendo games are no different from the ones they already got on PS3 and Xbox 360.

The fact that Nintendo launch it with 2 models means to offer consumers a choice but at the same time cause a confusion between which console is a successor and which is a cheaper re-design as the Wii Family Edition and Wii Mini (two inferior model form the original Wii) were also in the market too along with the 32GB and 8GB model Wii U. Because of this consumer loss interest and instead wait for the Xbox One and PS4 instead. If Nintendo want the NX to be successful, they need to know not to repeat the process with the Wii U. Launching one model, offering a better spec and capabilities, maybe include a 450GB - 600GB hard drive for game saves and data storage, and launching it at $300 - $350 would be great alongside a bundle title like new Super Mario 3D game or a killer app title like what Wii Sports and Nintendo Land did for the previous two system. Also abandon the Wii name and better clever name, something that could define the systems capabilities like what the DS and 3DS did.

For now; however, I think they shouldn't abandon the Wii U just yet, give it 3 or 4 more years (around 2018 or 2019) and launch the NX sometime near the end of the Wii U's lifespan (around 2018). That way Wii U owner doesn't feel like abandoning the system.



retro_player_22 commented on Rumour: Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Teased For N...:

With Treyarch handling it, I doubt it'll skipped Wii U as Treyarch has always supported Nintendo system with their games and Black Ops is one of their most significant series, Activision just so happens to slapped the Call of Duty name on it.



retro_player_22 commented on Video: Check Out Every Fire Emblem Intro So Fa...:

When watching these intros together, you kinda had the feeling that Sealed Swords (the one that starred Lyn, Eliwood, and Hector) was the original considering it's the only Fire Emblem game that had no subtitle instead of thinking it was the seventh entry in the series.



retro_player_22 commented on Former Rare Devs Playtonic Want Donkey Kong Co...:

Oh heck yeah. I had being wanting K. Rool of DKC to be in Super Smash Bros. since even before the release of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. We definitely need more Nintendo villains, also Tatanga, Wart, Nergal, Girahim, Vaati, one of the space hunter from Metroid Prime Hunters, Fawful, Cackletta, etc., would be awesome too.

retro_player_22 commented on Shin Megami Tensei and Fire Emblem Wii U Cross...:

@Nimious I'm sure once we see more of the game all the characters will reveal themselves. Having them reveal ths early in a trailer will probably spoil a lot. Also this is just an early trailer, Nintendo probably saved a more in-deph trailer or maybe even a playable demo for E3 2015. Just cuz there's one character for now doesn't mean there won't be more, just hope that it doesn't end up like Project X Zone.

Also this game isn't the first time Nintendo does crossover with a third party franchise, Pokemon did the same with Samurai Warriors for Pokemon Conquest as well and it turns out great. Never judge a game by its early preview. As for Tiki, who care if she's important or not, she's in the game and she's a Fire Emblem character.

@Jaz007 Despite this game had Fire Emblem characters in there, this game will be developed by Atlus which why a lot of the Fire Emblem characters will look like Shin Megami Tensei characters.



retro_player_22 commented on Download Card Prompts Speculation Over DLC Que...:

AS long as the DLCs doesn't interconnect with the main story then I'm okay with it. I just don't like unfinished contents purposely taken out of the main game but if the DLCs is just an optional tasks with benefiting rewards or more challenges, I'll accept that. If I have to download something to get the full story or experience then that's a breaker for me and I will never buy a game for that.



retro_player_22 commented on Gallery: Wii U Owners React to Screenshot Remo...:

People always find something to complain whether Miiverse, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, etc. It's nothing new, I do agree that an age filter does need to be made but then again some kids are idiots and will fake their age just to read and see it anyways.



retro_player_22 commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

As much as I love Fire Emblem, I usually hate having to rely on DLC for any main story content as sticking to just the physical package is what I prefer. If buying two separate versions to get the full experience out of everything then that is okay with me but buying both versions and having to deal with DLC that were purposely taken out, that doesn't roll with me.

If this is the path that Nintendo is doing with the Fire Emblem series now then I guess Awakening is the final Fire Emblem that I will ever play and own. Sorry Ninty I don't support DLC as a force contents for the main game. Awakening does it right, this game; however, is just ruining that. In fact I would had been much happier had Awakening never got DLC in the first place too.
