SetupDisk commented on Nintendo Download: 2nd July (North America):

I am getting frustrated with the Wii game situation. The local Walmart has Sin and Punishment for 20 bucks but I could just get it on the eshop soon. enough... if it ever comes out in NA! It's been months in Europe.



SetupDisk commented on Blast Ball is Actually the Tutorial in Metroid...:

I'd much rather a Captain Falcon game that takes place in the same universe as Metroid. Racing(Fzero), Brawler (BRAWL), FPA (PRIME) and even bonus bounties like punch out style ones and sword fghts with Samurai Goroh.

The ultimate sandbox game. With other bounty hunters/characters playable from both franchises including Samus of course.



SetupDisk commented on ​Shigeru Miyamoto Defends Star Fox Zero's Co...:

I think he said after two days to cover the slow people out there as a lot of people at E3 got the controls during their second demo play.

Also if the duel screen and gyro are a gimmick so is anything but a joystick with one button. Maybe keep a simple option for those that want the same thing again and again. You can even have a select screen with standard controls or a picture of a baby playing with a pro controller.



SetupDisk commented on Talking Point: The Mystery of Devil's Third an...:

Maybe NOA are just a bunch of cowards? It seems to be the cause after XC, Pandora's tower, fatal frame 1&2 remake, fatal frame iv (Reggie didn' like the controls but it's apparent lately that games are much better for him when they control themselves).

They might bomb but give the people that bought your system more options like NOJ and NOE scumbags.



SetupDisk commented on Nintendo Reportedly Pitched NX To Third Partie...:

I want a powerful portable/home console combo. It should be backward compatible and use blue tooth so it can support all Wii U supported controllers including the pro which is perfect as a traditional controller for those that don't like the gamepad for whatever reason.

It can use Blu Ray instead of priority disks and since it will also support digital of course. When taking it on the go when the disc drive would not be used or for just all of the time you can upload a game you buy on disc to internal storage.

I would be hoping for a system design like the gamepad but other controllers would be usable for the cry babies.

Plus for Wii U owners there would finally be enough processing power to use more than one gamepad as a controller.

Local death matches in COD or the like without the splitscreen or the tv.



SetupDisk commented on Review: Funk of Titans (Wii U eShop):

I actually liked this game after not liking too many runners. I think the main reason was the variation in direction instead of just left to right there is pretty much everything.

The bosses are lame as hell though. I did like the main music that is funk. But the backgrounds are actually very varied and not just the looping crap I was expecting. Too bad it doesn't have a demo so people could try out a few stages.



SetupDisk commented on Take More Risks With Your eShop Purchases, Ple...:

The main thing I got from this is Damon Baker seems like a cool guy to hang out with plus play games. Also he is a good looking man but still has a nerd quality that would make him a good PR or interview guy over the people on the direct.

Also the brunette from the treehouse was very good looking and natural on live camera.

I know it's horrible but good looking yet still nerdy eough people are what is perfect for selling games or getting peoples attention. Nintendo seems to be learning that with sending Ali Rapp to ign though Brian falling in love with her in the vids was kinda embarrassing(I don't blame him though).

Plus unlike an Audry Drake she isn't a total Nintendo fangirl and showed interest in stuff like Fallout 4 on her twitter during E3.

Don't get me wrong, I love Iwata and company in the directs but cmon. Attractive young adults to the same in their 40's(just a wild guess) people that still seem real and obviously enjoy video games.

I'm not talking just sex sells. These are people a lof of gamers would like to hang out with or game with. Plus seem cool enough that kids (teens) would listen to what they have to say.

I think besides showing awesome gameplay these far too infrequent treehouse events show Nintendo has another thing to add to the lisf of assests they don't use enough.

I know this really has nothing to do with this article but it just came to mind while reading. On youtube there are lots of people with tons of views without the charisma of these folks.

If Nintendo wants to stop youtubers from having let's plays with Nintendo games they have something better to replace it with RIGHT THERE!



SetupDisk commented on Feature: Our Impressions of the Full Nindies@H...:

Rive is master blaster with shooter controls with lots of enemies. In other words heaven.

Typoman was great. Form8 was extremely boring and I usually like slower paced games as much as fast ones. Maybe it was the mistake of playing it right after RIVE. It has lots of potential and I will give it another try.

Soul Axiom seemed like someone gave free movement to some of those horrible cheap point and click adventures that STILL get made for the pc. I don't mean the good ones of which there are many. I can't think of a good bad one to use as example. The ones that are like one step above hidden object games that waste great themes like Poe.

It is six months away though.



SetupDisk commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

I find it hilarious when people mention something like I only have two games worth having on Wii U.

So Bayonnetta 2 isn't your thing. Fine. Wonderful 101 isn't your thing. Fine. A version of Tekken with freaking Smash like powerups in one mode isn't your thing. Neat. The first original survival horror on a console in decades isn't your thing. Great!

Instead of remakes of games from in some cases just months ago, a remake of one of the best Zelda games in WindWaker that was on the Gamecube isn't your thing. Outstanding! A great art program isn't your thing. A 3D 4 player Mario isn't your thing and I hear all those Mario games are the exact same anyway right?

Well that Mario Maker isn't interesting, it's just another Mario game, AGAIN! Fatal Frame must be Garbage. All games on Nintendo systems are kiddy and easy, Razor's Edge does't exist.

Monster Hunter Ultmate 3 wasn't.. well I just can't get into that. Pikmen 3? Another milked franchise! Splatoon doesn't have voicechat so there is no way it can be good or innovative.

Oh yeah the eshop, the only game on there is the letter.

The Wii U has lots of things that could be improved. Connecting with friends online without having to basically use some other form of communication. More 3rd part support. Full features in series like COD when they were on the system.

But to say stuff like the system has only 1 or 2 games to play. The only good game to play yet to come out is Zelda.

They must have the absolute worst taste in games or be be really ignorant.



SetupDisk commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

I love Boderlands but yes the headline of this is hilarious. The article makes sense but besides the first Boderlands when have come up with anything new? Even Boderlandx is a 3D shooter version of Diablo. He is kinda talking out of his arse.



SetupDisk commented on Review: Journey of a Special Average Balloon (...:

Oh I played it on the NES, it was that bad. Maybe not so bad with the price on the vc but I was refering to people that bought the cart on the NES which was the point of my post. Thank goodness I only traded with a friend for a bit.

Now with 2 people it was a little more fun just to talk the "smack" and laugh at someone getting a pot on their head.

Now I wish the Spy vs Spy game could be released on VC. A licensed 2 player game that was great!



SetupDisk commented on Super Mario Maker Will Allow You to Unlock ami...:

Well one bonus you can get is putting the Amiibo characters in your levels and you will have a better chance more people will play them to unlock them if you name them something like Wario Run or something.

I still hate the fact that I could have Marth, Wii Fit Trainer, Villager and Little Mac if I had more money that day. I only have 18 including the Splatoon pack.



SetupDisk commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

To be honest my biggest disappointments from E3 was X coming out so late this year and no mention of a 1TB at least PS4. If you could just hook up an external it wouldn't be an issue but most of the games I buy now are digital version. I don't like the idea of having to open a brand new system to put in a drive.

But on the other hand the only games I want on it rght now are BloodBourne, Batman(the new one) and Dark Souls 3 which is still being developed. I'm just better off waiting till next year to see if there is a price drop.



SetupDisk commented on Nintendo Download: 18th June (North America):

I will also try to post the prices in your updates for Canada. Most of the time I just point out the games that are delayed here.

Oh Stone Shire came out last week but thank goodness it came late unless they have added the updates they are talking about it's basically just a demo.

Cube Life has stuff to work out and stuff to add but at least it's a game.



SetupDisk commented on Review: Journey of a Special Average Balloon (...:

So this guy never had a Wii? There were games on that below this quality. Not that this is great but some people conveniently forget the amount of shovelware on Wii when complaining about the quality of some eshop games.

Then people conveniently forget the amount of shovelware on the PS2. The FMV games that had nothing going for them besides fmv and in some cases that was horrible on the playstation.

How can anyone forget Urban Champion from Nintendo themselves? My memory falled me for a bit thinking the 16 bit era was not bogged down by it but then I remembered all those horrible mascots trying to be the next Mario and Sonic.

Games for the SNES that were never in Nintendo Power for some odd reason.

At least these games in the eshop don't cost over a 90 bucks with inflation.

Damn kids.


Oh yes polygons! I forgot the wonder of 3D games that didn't have enough gameplay for a 2D game.



SetupDisk commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

That's what I don't get though, do any of the people that don't find two screens immerse drive? Do you only use your rearview and side mirrors when parking or passing? That's a really scary thought. It is a constant scan of your whole environment in which you have to use mirrors and the like to get the total picture of your surroundings.

I know that some people don't find it more immerse and I get that but how can you not accept it is for some people with a very mundane every day example like driving being the same thing?



SetupDisk commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

Maybe check out some other hands on because none of the others I have read had that much of a problem with the controls. Some people just can't handle two screens and need the simple controls. For people that enjoy them this is great news as the new controls haven't been held back for those that can't handle them.

The graphics issue is still clearly there for those that care though.



SetupDisk commented on Iwata Vows To Listen To E3 2015 Digital Event ...:

The right info wasn't in there. Too many games getting trailers after the event was over and not during.

This year for Wii U there is Fatal Frame, Star Fox, X, Devil's third, Mario Maker, Yarn Yoshi, Mario Tennis and in a little bit the art app. That's what we know of and just between Mario Maker and X I am looking at hundreds of hours.

But I guess Nintendo doomed.
