Shworange commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):
4 seems a bit generous.
Shworange commented on This Fan-Made NES 3DS XL Offers a Cool Alterna...:
We need one that combines both! Top of the NES on the outside, NES controller on the inside. Obviously there would have to be some changes due to button layout, but get the colors right and design inspired as such, and it would be awesome!
Shworange commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Will Suppor...:
@crzysortagamer Oh really? Weird. As I don't own a circle pad pro I just assumed it somehow accessed it 3DS directly through the power port. Thanks for the heads up.
Shworange commented on NES-Themed Nintendo 3DS XL On The Way as GameS...:
Odd that they announce this AFTER the new 3ds announcement.
Kind of odd. Aren't they essentially exactly the same thing? Oh well. My original 3ds is getting in need of an update, and if it arrives in the first half of 2015, I will heartily partake.
Shworange commented on Video: Watch These Teenagers As They're Expose...:
My 11 and six year olds were raised with a healthy dose of retro gaming. I think they are better gamers for it. I know it's probably unfair, but I'd really like to repeatedly slap some of those kids right in their smug faces.
Shworange commented on Super Mario 64:
This is a pretty cool idea. Can't wait to see the next games that pop up.
Shworange commented on Win a Super Smash Bros. Trainer Jacket from Ni...:
Done. First time I cracked my twitter account in a year.

I'm somewhere between the top two.

Hot damn, yea!!!
Shworange commented on Review: Super Dodge Ball (3DS eShop / NES):
My little brother and I got in so many arguments over this game on the NES! I'll have to buy it now.

That was really funny.

The gameplay seems extraordinarily repetitive.
Shworange commented on Rumour: Nintendo Will Reveal New Hardware At T...:
I'm pretty sure Iawata said they'd show off the QOL device at E3. It's coming out in April 2015. That means it has to be shown off at E3.
Shworange commented on Mario Kart 8 Club Nintendo Promotion Offers a ...:
That sucks. I have all four of those games already! I guess I'll try to sell the code on eBay.., Although I'd be suspicious of buying codes on the internet from a third party, so it may be hard to sell it.
Shworange commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:
Personally, I'm glad there's no traditional conference. Nintendo execs are horrible public speakers. Look back at all old conferences. They know this. This way they can polish it and shine in the way they are comfortable with.
Shworange commented on Review: Child of Light (Wii U eShop):
I can't wait to get it. I'm going to wait for a little bit otherwise I'll never finish off my current batch of games. I hate building up back logs.
Shworange commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:
I hope the QOL does well for them. Anything to prevent them from being SOL.
Shworange commented on Review: Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (3DS ...:
This was my first castlevania game. I still have the NES cartridge. It was my favorite of the three original. @unrandomsamYou're spot on about the music! If anyone gets the chance, look up the Nintendo Voice Chat podcast about Castlevania. They play the music side by side. It's an incredibly stark contrast. If we got the Famicom music in the virtual console release, I would buy it in a heart beat. My NES works great though and it's hooked up to an appropriate CRT tv.
Shworange commented on Weirdness: This Monster Hunter Fan Will Keep Y...:
@AyeHaley That was the first thing I saw too. I didn't realize the word phallic was offensive and censor worthy though.
Shworange commented on Download Developer Hits a "Brick Wall" When Tr...:
What a disheartening article. Nintendo while I love you, you have to wake the hell up! Are you actively trying to tank your company? That certainly is what it feels like sometimes. Yea, I know they have a huge war chest of billions of dollars. What good is it though when everyone turns their backs on you due to stupid problems of your own making! If Nintendo fails one day, it will be their fault due to their stubborn refusal to adapt and change with the times. You can't just ride the coat tails of the Nintendo name any longer. You act as though you are still a impenetrable force to be reckoned with. You aren't. Not when Microsoft, Sony, Apple, Google and Amazon cast larger shadows that you. To compete, you have to be the guys that freaking work harder! Show the world why you're still the best! Forget the past, because it is irrelevant in the world of Moore's Law. You can be proud of your heritage, but if you're going to insist that the world live in the 80s with you, then you're party will become a funeral dirge.
Shworange commented on Nintendo Download: 24th April (North America):
What a good week! Keep it coming!
Shworange commented on Nintendo Is Shutting Down Its Taiwan Subsidiary:
@Falco What's worse, WiiU sales are about half of what Sega Dreamcast's were at the same time in it's life span. God I hope there's a plan...
Shworange commented on Nintendo Confirms Mario Golf: World Tour DLC, ...:
That's a lot of DLC! Too bad I hate golf...
Shworange commented on The Nintendo eShop Is Like Paradise, Says Imag...:
Steamworld Dig was an absolutely fabulous game. It was inventive and hooked me from its opening. I played straight through the game and will go back for 100% orbs. It incorporated some of the best things about Meteoid and added its own unique flavor, elements and design. Any success they garner from it is well deserved. I'm very much looking forward to the company's next endevour.
Shworange commented on Nintendo Involved In Patent Dispute Over Wii U...:
This patent troll crap has to be stopped at the government level! I did a quick search on the company Secure Axcess to see how legit they are. In recent years, they sued Dell Computers over the use of encryption technology to make servers secure. They the. Went ahead and sued JP Morgan Chase, First Citizen Bank, and Harris Bank over the use of login pictures (sometimes companies make you login and then pick an image that you selected upon account creation). These guys are very active patent trolls. This type of litigation gets very expensive and time consuming. Nintendo may just settle, but that doesn't mean they stole anything. Also, the case is being filed in Texas. This is because the state has regulations that support patent trolls.

Too bad Nintendo couldn't hold onto him.

Already have em all except for DK, which I already completed on the Wii version
Shworange commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:
I got reprimanded for linking to a picture within Trine 2 that showed a glitch where a crate you need could disappear, forcing you to exit and renter. They said it should have been tagged with a spoiler warming. Bite me.

That was awesome!

Sweet! That's an awesome idea! I will get it now and recreate the days of just reading about the championship in Nintendo Power. I really wished I could compete when I was a kid.
Shworange commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:
There's about a 4% chance the game gets released this year on WiiU. No farking way we see it in 2014.
Shworange commented on Review: Super Dodge Ball (Wii U eShop / NES):
My little brother and I played this game for so very many hours as kids. Many fist fights were caused by this game. I need to see it come to WiiU.

Shworange commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Is Warping To North Americ...:
Some great games coming out. While it's cool to be able to play them on my WiiU, I'd really like to play them on my 3DS as well.
Shworange commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:
Pac man's ultimate smash has to be him turning into a giant retro pac man, mightily chomping everything in his way. Anything else would be highly disappointing.
Shworange commented on Two Tribes Shoots Down the Possibility of Toki...:
Honestly, I never bought it because it looked like a cutsie piece of crap. I'm not saying its impossible to like it, but the art style they used, (as well as a stupid, fat chicken) appeals to not very many people.
Shworange commented on Weirdness: The Legend of Zelda's Master Sword ...:
Hey, at least it's cool to see that highly rendered of a master sword.
Shworange commented on Unepic Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U:
Shworange commented on Talking Point: Super Metroid's 20th Anniversar...:
The closest thing to a metroid game that I've played recently was steamworld dig. It felt very metroid. You explore a desolate world. You get numerous power ups as well. There were many differences of course, but at its heart was that of Samus'. I couldn't stop playing steamworld dig. I played right through the whole game within a couple of days (I think my ultimate time was 9ish hours). Upon completion, I was a little sad because I wanted more. What I really want however is more metroid!
Shworange commented on Feature: Looking Back on the Year of Luigi:
@AJWolfTill Yea really. I assumed they had one more surprise release. I guess although the year of Luigi really ended with Dr Luigi, they just tacked an arbitrary calendar date to confuse and annoy.
Shworange commented on Wii Sports Club: Golf Adds Resort Course as a ...:
Nice, but cough baseball cough.
Shworange commented on Wii Fit U Update 1.2.0 Trims And Slims for a B...:
I hate the fact that the game goes on weight alone to create your mii's appearance. I'm 6'2. I weigh 235 pounds. Sounds fat right? Except for the fact that I'm actually not. I work out all the time. My wife is a personal trainer. She is 5'3. She weighs 140. She's freaking ripped! Abs of steel. According to her Mii, she's a bit over weight. We did the trial, but since there's no way to reduce her mii's size other than tell her to stop lifting weights, she's stuck with it. I can live with a comically chubby mii. She can't. So hence, no full game purchase.

Very similar to the 2012 North American platinum reward.

If virtual reality takes off, some company will realease a visor designed to look like a virtual boy. That prediction is a lock.
