@MoonKnight7
The point is that the option is there, and it adds another controller right away. It doesn't really matter how bad it is. That's why I didn't mind saying I'd try it at least once, regardless of how much I dislike it.

I don't even mind the Classic Controller Pro, honestly, and tons of people supposedly hate that over GCN or the Wii U pro controller.

They should have added in touch controls for the Wii U version, even though I'd only try it at least once. That free price must really matter, but they might as well make it a micro-transaction like for the 3DS(in app, though).

SCAR commented on Unity Support on New Nintendo 3DS is Now Avail...:

If they let Xbox One run Unity as an app, I'd probably become a developer right then and there, and so would alot of people, probably. That's the only way we should care, anyway, at least from my perspective, because we already know Xbox One can run the whole Unity program.

SCAR commented on Macronix Will Be Providing Memory Products for...:

I'm guessing that this will be a RTS version of Smash Bros, and the memory products will be things like items that you can send in game.
You'll be able to use amiibos, then throw items like bats, heart containers, etc, to advance your way through Master hands forces or compete against friends.
I guess I would say it will be like Project S.T.E.A.M., except Smash Bros.

SCAR commented on Here's a Breakdown of the Extra e-Reader Level...:

I was totally displeased with e-reader on GBA. In concept, it seemed awesome, but they literally never released all the cards for the e-reader mode, and scanning the 10-up card over and over was too tempting, especially when I could beat the game anyway.

There was some kid that always told me you could go to Orange Islands in Gold and Silver. The Official Pokemon Fan Book almost got me to believe him, especially since you could go back to Kanto, but I realized it was fake after scouring the internet for info.

@Lizuka - I feel the same way, and yes, I also heard it was B as soon as the Pokeball "explodes" to capture them. I actually captured most of the Pokemon with a Great ball, because of it, including the legendaries, regardless of whether the rumor was true.

It's pretty ridiculous how only a few of the lies survived. I remember everyone saying that you had to look at that arcade machine by the ocean to get Pikablu. Too bad it wasn't real, and I did try the lies.

It almost doesn't even make sense how Missingno was discovered so fast, honestly.

SCAR commented on Minecraft on Wii U Won't Feature Inventory Man...:

@Jazzer94 - Meh. I think it will probably be the same version Xbox One and PS4 got. Minecraft isn't that demanding of a game and Wii U can do it.

The only reason why they even said it wouldn't run on 3DS, is because they weren't even trying to get it on there and it would even probably run in 3D on New 3DS, at least. So with enough effort, the games will run in full.
This game is on every platform now, which is why cross-play/buy needs to happen for this game, otherwise they're letting the whole fanbase down(everyone with a device that runs it).

SCAR commented on Eiji Aonuma Talks Linkle's Origins and Appeara...:

Maybe they still can, or create a Zelda game with her as the main character. With twisted dimensions, time distortion. magic, etc, anything can happen, including Ghiraham somehow being Navi or Vaati somehow transforming into a human that is probably Ghiraham's brother. There's no way to know anymore.

SCAR commented on Minecraft on Wii U Won't Feature Inventory Man...:

They don't even need to put this game on Wii U, probably, because everyone already bought and played the crap out of it on everything else. I'd say it still matters more 3DS, and that goes back to saying that cross-platform multiplayer and cross-buy needs to happen on everything.

SCAR commented on Minecraft on Wii U Won't Feature Inventory Man...:

GamePad utilization needs to be there, IMO. I know off-TV play matters for some, but crafting and doing other stuff on the GamePad being absent is a HUGELY missed opportunity. An update is always possible, but it makes absolutely no sense why they would leave one the biggest features of Wii U out. They don't even have Smartglass or PS Vita Remote Play running on the other consoles when the feature could be there and matters for people who want that type of experience. This could be said about alot of games, actually, so I guess it's not much to expect anyway, but it still matters in the light that the GamePad is still Wii U's main controller, and there won't be anything interesting on the second screen.

SCAR commented on EA CFO Explains Why the Company Doesn't Make W...:

It's not surprising. They have every right to think that, but a lot of it still goes back to misunderstandings and misplaced doubt from the consumer. The 3rd party developers are failures in many aspects, even on Xbox One and PS4, so personal opinion actually matters more.

Have fun with yearly releases that rip you off and micro transaction cash grabs from EA, exclusively on x86 and mobile devices.

Not to mention that Xbox Live should be free, and Sony failed with PSN on PS3, which is why they require PS+, now. That's how things even out in the long run, when you look at all 3 companies.

SCAR commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Third...:

A lot of the games I would choose aren't on the list:
Deus Ex
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
ZombiU
Splintercell
Tekken
Lego City
Rayman Legends

I played those way more than the 1st party games, besides Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and Mario 3D World. I'm only halfway through my second playthrough of Pikmin 3, and I haven't played it in a long time. I haven't beaten DKC: TF, yet, either, but it wouldn't be on my list, anyway.

SCAR commented on Video: See the Differences Between Star Fox Ze...:

I agree that it still looks mostly like a high quality PS3 game, but that says more about the studio progression, than it does the hardware. There was no way to make every game look like Uncharted 3 or Beyond Two Souls(and even those needed more texture work, IMO), besides Sony's efforts(3rd parties just ran the Xbox 360 version), and Nintendo wasn't even doing HD, yet. That's why it still matters that Nintendo is continuously improving Wii U's graphics.

I would still say the geometry and textures are a bit better than most last generation titles. Wii U will also be running the GamePad, 5.1 PCM, and running in 720p upscaled to 1080p(like Nintendo's other games), so the Wii U is running things that weren't being done on Xbox 360 and PS3.
Even Xbox One and PS4 don't have as good of sound quality, as far as I can tell.

Rambling over...

Nintendo is still working hard on improving Wii U's graphic engine as a whole, for sure. I'm not going to be surprised when a game comes out that looks as good as the Zelda tech demo, period. That's just how graphics improve over a generation.
Compare Gears of War 1's graphics to the progress they made to Gears of War 3, or Halo 3 to Halo 4, and that's why the 8th generation consoles were getting ports of 7th generation games.
That's why no one should be surprised when the graphics get even better in later games. These graphics are on par with games of similar graphic styles on Xbox One. Wow.

@Mk_II
Well, $4 billion is a pretty big drop. It really depends on how much money they are taking from the investors, but one thing for sure, is that it didn't take $4 billion to make this app, which is 100% that they are full of crap.

SCAR commented on Nintendo's Share Value on the Rebound Followin...:

@crimsontadpoles - Ya, well they're dumba$$es. Besides, Nintendo could release some good mobile that isn't Mario or Zelda. They already have Pokemon TCG on iPad and can do other stuff like that. Miitomo actually looks like a good app for mobile, because it looks like Tomadochi Life, but they were comparing it to FaceBook like idiots.

EDIT: I agree there should be more in the app(like maybe turn based mini games like Words w/ Friends or something similar), but it is still a nice little app that people can do instead of usual texting or other messaging stuff. Let's not forget that we're comparing this to crap like Flappy Bird that was basically spam and advertisers loved it.

They better watch out. I saw the Regginator pacing the premises, and he wants the SNES Playstation back; for good, this time. He just barely missed the bid, and there's a file on that machine that will upgrade the Reginator's firmware to uncontrollable levels.

I'm not talking about Reggie. I'm talking about the Reggie look-alike bot from E3, that can't drink water.

Actually, my old account was from 2009, and I don't know how to delete it. I forgot the password, and finally figured it out today. Microsoft changed my email address through the ISP, so I couldn't use "forgot password".

SCAR commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

I joined the site around 2007, but my account got deleted from not using it, then I created another account when Wii U came out. This is still my favorite site for Nintendo news, honestly. I haven't been on IGN for a while, but last time I checked, it's cluttered with stuff other than gaming.

SCAR commented on Review: Konami Krazy Racers (Wii U eShop / GBA):

I wanted this game a lot when GBA came out. I had a game poster with pictures of games coming to GBA, and it had a picture of Goemon racing. I kept the poster, because SNES like graphics on GBA was very impressive for me, at the time, and I liked to see what games were like, even if I didn't have them. Youtube wasn't around, so I liked looking at the poster. I still haven't ever played it, but I'm fine. I ended up getting MK Super Circuit when I got my GBA, instead.

SCAR commented on Feature: How Mario Kart Brought Two Soul Mates...:

I fell in love with Kamek on MK DS. They were the best in the world on WiFi Connection.com for a while and had a rasta marijuana leaf as the painting on their kart. I never met them in person, but I loved them. We met once again, but they quit, because I learned how to snake.

EDIT; This is 100% a true story.

SCAR commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Super Metroid:

I've played through this game 4 times, and my fastest time was 2:15(3rd time). 2nd time was the cinematic experience. I didn't get all the upgrades on any of them, but still got all the ones in the way on my fastest.

EDIT: Actually, my fastest time was 1:45 on the 2nd time, which was still cinematic, but 2:15 was my last time and I still got more upgrades on that one. Whoops.

Should have had Wii remote support. It's pretty surprising that Nintendo has dropped the ball on Wii mote support. Too bad that it's not Mario Kart level of priority. Next we'll be getting Mario Golf U without Wii mote support, and I will look away.

Hopefully, they show up on the Wii U eShop? I've always wanted them for VC, so it will be a shame if they don't come back. If Sega doesn't republish them, Nintendo best be working out a deal, or maybe a remake that includes the first 3, plus Knuckles in all of them(including the first game).
