Shanksta commented on Nintendo Was Dead To Us Very Quickly, States E...:

No games for kids, good thing I forgot about that game they made directly aimed at kids, "Dead Space 2". In no way was "your mother will hate this game" aimed at 20-40 year old men. EA should change their name to DOA.



Shanksta commented on New Splinter Cell Blacklist Maps Creeping Onto...:

I'm getting the billionaire's yacht for sure since I already have dead coast. Considering they are both coop maps(not mandatory coop) I'll bite, I probably play them by myself anyways. More fun since people don't seem to talk in coop and just shoot wildly.



Shanksta commented on Video: Ubisoft Wraps Up Splinter Cell Blacklis...:

I'm getting this for sure despite no local play, since it doesn't seem like my brother will play it anyway. I really hope I can find someone else online who likes to play this game coop. It's a bummer there isn't a social network or something that will put me in contact with others who like playing the same games as me on the WiiU... oh wait.



Shanksta commented on Nintendo Download: 4th July (North America):

@waluigifan1 I did see that, they were talking about Mario Bros the arcade game port to NES not the Super Mario Bros game, which the picture was of. Confusing and stupid.

@Ambassador_Kong I'm still upset that there is still no word on Dungeons and Dragons, yet its listed as coming soon on the eshop. I need to quit looking since coming soon apparently means coming within the next few months.



Shanksta commented on Wii U Version Of Beyond Good & Evil 2 Looking ...:

I bought the gamecube version recently to get ready for whenever the new one gets made. Guess I don't care anymore since the sequel won't make it to WiiU. Oh well, I guess they don't want my money since I'm not going to buy either of the other systems. Good thing there's always games that I can only get on Nintendo systems.



Shanksta commented on Nintendo Download: 20th June (North America):

@Ambassador_Kong I get where you're coming from. I was waiting for D & D as well, but at least I get Luigi U and Game And Wario this week to play. Hopefully it will be soon but I don't see how getting upset over it will change anything. Plus the Game Gear games look solid if you have a 3ds. I do agree that this drought is pretty lame though.



Shanksta commented on Ubisoft Posts Beyond Good & Evil Image On Its ...:

I recently just bought the first one for Gamecube. I'll be honest, I've never played it. I'm hoping it's as good as everyone says and if so, I hope that the sequel makes its way to WiiU. Knowing Ubisoft there's a good chance that'll happen.



Shanksta commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Aim to Produce ...:

Personally, having some mature games couldn't hurt. Not rated M as in violence, but a more mature take on Zelda for example could indeed be seen in those relationship-themed sequences in Skyward Sword and it was those cutscenes that I worked toward. At the same time I'm proud as a Nintendo fan to say that I "crowdfarted" for Game and Wario.

I think overall, fun is more important than mature storytelling like "The Last of Us". Honestly, that game looks cool but its replay value may turn out to be low. Where as any game that is just plain fun I could pick up any day of the week.

There I'm done contradicting my own points.



Shanksta commented on Ian Livingstone: Nintendo Should Have Their IP...:

Personally, I don't care. Most young kids now are out of control anyway because they have bad or uninterested parents. When I have kids they're going to play Nintendo and love it because that's what I grew up with, and their games are more fun that most else that's out there anyway.

Plus, a friend of my enemy is my enemy. AKA. he's friends with Molyneux and I don't care for him so therefore I don't care for either of them.



Shanksta commented on Sniper Elite V2 on Wii U Lacks Online Co-Op an...:

60 bucks is way overpriced for an old port. I didn't get this when it came out and heard it was coming to WiiU, but I think I'll wait till it drops in price before purchasing. The singleplayer was the only reason I was going to get it anyway, but the lack of DLC is disappointing. Singleplayer games tend to be more what I look for since online (for most games) tends to bore me.



Shanksta commented on Satoru Iwata: Nintendo Has No Plans To Adopt C...:

Thank you, Nintendo. Personally I think cloud gaming is stupid. Granted 3ds to WiiU transfer would be cool for save data, but you can do that already with Monster Hunter. I love that I can play DLC for games even when not connected to the internet. My friend that owns an Xbox can't play any DLC whenever his internet disconnects. This news just made my day.



Shanksta commented on Video: Here's Some Footage Of The Rayman Legen...:

I'm glad they're adding more bosses and 30+ plus levels to the actual game since they have more time with it. Complaining about a delay is stupid, especially when they brought it up to August now and are working hard on adding more to it. Plus this challenge app is awesome, getting all gold so far has been pretty difficult.



Shanksta commented on Assassin's Creed III (Wii U) Tyranny of King W...:

Just from that, the bear power looks like the dumbest of the group. Wolf was ok I guess just made things a little too easy. Eagle was more into the realm of "super heroes" and was odd. This one looks way over the top, not that its supposed to be realistic but the main draw to ACIII, not the dlc, was the realism. Could end up being really fun though, I'll have to wait until next week.



Shanksta commented on The Story of an Abandoned Mega Man FPS, Maveri...:

How are people upset by the cancellation of this, or even think that it looks epic or amazing. The graphics look ok, not great. The gameplay looks repetitive and boring. Overall, good job Capcom, for once you cancel I game that I agree should never have seen the light of day.



Shanksta commented on LucasArts Shut Down By Disney:

I'm pretty sure the Rogue Squadron games were published by Lucas Arts, but developed by Factor 5. Granted they haven't done anything lately worth noting. Still this is very disheartening since I thought Star Wars 1313 looked like a third party Uncharted.



Shanksta commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Makes His Miiverse Debut:

I really hope that the 3D mario game for Wiiu this year will turn into a 3D luigi game. That would be awesome. Instead of Bowser you'd be up against Wort from Super Mario Bros 2(North America Version). Something just to mix it up would be fantastic!



Shanksta commented on New Patch Released For Call of Duty: Black Ops...:

I couldn't care less. I play the game but not enough to care about fixes. Granted I was surprised at how many fixes there were, but when my brother and I mainly play zombies and we get no new map or mode, I just don't care anymore.



Shanksta commented on Wii U Version of Need For Speed: Most Wanted U...:

Game looks awesome, I'll buy it for sure. I don't usually get DLC for games anyway unless they add new missions. Need for Speed DLC is always like a new car or something and can't justify spending money on something so superfluous.



Shanksta commented on Dead Island: Riptide Is Skipping Wii U:

I hated the first one, so I don't really care. The emphasis on melee made it so the only fun way to play was to treat the thumbstick like your swinging pattern, but then it became impossible to play since you couldn't really fight a group swinging different ways fast enough. I didn't think it was going to warrant a sequel but I guess that's just me.



Shanksta commented on Nintendo States That an External Hard Drive is...:

@oldaq The games have an icon on the main menu and you launch just like anything else.

I bought a 2TB hard drive a week before launch as a contingency. If the stores around me don't have the game yet or release it until tuesday when the release date is monday, then I will download it. I guess I'd get 5 bucks back anyway so I might just download it towards the digi deluxe promo:)



Shanksta commented on Pandora's Tower Will Be Invading North America...:

Noo! I'm not really that upset but I was hoping that gamestop was right with their release date of March 26. Oh well, will definitely pick this up because 1) it looks awesome and 2) I really want to support localization of more games like this.



Shanksta commented on PETA Starts "Whaling" About Assassin's Creed I...:

I'll kill a whale in a video game because I'll probably get some in-game money and its not real and I have enough common sense to know he difference between reality and video games. I get what PETA is saying but they're idiots about most other things so I really just don't care what they have to say. I also get the arguments about the realism of the videogame desensitizes people, but I would argue against that, I mean unless you are some kind of idiot.



Shanksta commented on Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag is Confirmed Fo...:

I kinda wish they would've either picked a subtitle for the game or a number. 1,2, and 3 were all numbered but only the "expansion" titles had subtitles. I guess they haven't announced anything yet, but if its still Connor "Black Flag" would suffice. However, if its a new ancestor they should just call it IV. I know I sound picky, but why change the rules of your numbering system after 5 games?
