@rjejr

I saw it at the forums, so I thought your date obsession would make you find it. :)

Anyway, the thing is not even worth it as Bayonetta only says October and as this article mentions, Affordable is not correct. The whole thing is made up of things we already knew or less. I think Sonic Boom already has a date as well.

I do admit that I am surprised to see Guard and Robot as their own games as opposed to being parts of Starfox.

I can proudly say that I bought both games. I still believe Chubbins should have had a save option after each level and not after each world. Soon Shine is more enjoyable, although sessions start slow and it has some strategy. Best of luck to you guys.

@RCMADIAX

I also bought all of your three games, with my favorite being Blok Drop U. The quality is there, although the other two are very simple, luck based experiences.

If both versions were releasing at the same time, I would take the Wii U version and leave the 3DS version to buy somewhere in the future. Then Nintendo was smart enough to release this one first, so I will be playing it until the console version hits.

About the new 3DS, well, it is hitting after this game in all territories, so if people want to wait for Smash until it arrives, that is their decision. I think there is a reason why MH was the game shown to benefit from the nipple.

I have two 3DS, a normal and an XL, so unless they show a super beautiful limited edition or there is a must buy game that uses the new system's features I don't think I will buy one. Yet those PC transfers and new sweet spot sound really awesome, I admit.

@rjejr

Man, you really are obsessed with dates. It says until the end of December, i.e. December 31st. In this particular case at least, I don't feel the exact day is necessary as it can be implied. But I know you are probably joking anyway :)

I wish DDP would extend for all of Wii U's lifetime. I was thinking about having it indefinite for people who got games online before a certain date, similar to the Ambassador program, or extend it if you spend a certain amount of money before a certain date.

What date you say? It's Nintendo so you won't be told until it can be seen in the horizon ;)

@rjejr

I just hope Iwata's plan of giving their best customers cheaper prices replaces the DDP seamlessly, but that is me wishful thinking about it. I know you want something akin to PS+, but I don't want to see indies there. I have heard the "that game looks cool but I will wait until it is free with PS+" tons of times and I don't think it helps them, and they are the ones who could use the most support.

Unite Love for the Wonderful 101 and Pikmin 3!

But besides WWHD, the oldest of the games shown is 3D World, so they seem to be focusing on recent games. And Zelda, even as a remake, is a greater brand than Pikmin and W101.

Overall I feel it is a very organized and to the point reel, with the titles clearly shown and a neverending stream of gameplay. So happy of being a Wii U owner, now more than I was since launch.

@rjejr

For me that is the perfect hook. Kids will recognize that blonde guy as the one who also appears in Smash, the rest of us will have all the Link we can handle and his amiibo could be used in 2 games right away.

Shinen lost my purchase of Jett Rocket II because they had a demo. Normally I would have taken the game but got the demo and had enough. Raby Laby 3 had no demo, so I took the plunge. Demos encourage people to be cheap and not spend.

I was planning to buy a 2DS to complete the "family", and they show a new member.

That extra circle pad looks so small, and I hope the so called extra power won't split the userbase in a significant way. Yet the no ghosting on 3D images sounds way too awesome.

I know who can scratch a date off his calendar now...

I am happy with this. 31st would fit like a glove, but let's face it, why should we have to wait an extra week? This and The Evil Within will give me a gritty October.

@rjejr

When I got the MK8 DLC on Wednesday, I saw that the expected release date for the first pack is End of November 2014. That made me think Smash U could/should release by then, as having Link makes it the perfect reference. And of course Amiibo.

sinalefa commented on Nintendo Download: 28th August (North America):

I know this is an amazing week, and I kinda feel bad for complaining, but wasn't Tappingo 2 hitting today?

Getting Gunvolt, and I may get a second copy of SSFIV if the price is good. Too bad I lack an HD, or I would have gotten that MH discount.

sinalefa commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

I cannot vote since that poll is missing the options "I plan to get all three" and the one that I would have chosen "I plan to pick one of the other two, but not sure which one yet". I see having three consoles as way too expensive, specially when two of those are so similar.

In any case, Wii U will definitely be my primary console, with the other for third party games and the exclusives that appeal to me the most, hence the reason I haven't decided yet.

@IceClimbers

I plan to get it day 1, as I did with W101, but I did not know there was an Operation for it. That would have fit the latter as a glove, since its stages are called Operations. Thankfully Nintendo is including an enhanced port of the first one, so you get a lot of bang for your buck.

sinalefa commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

I usually have a favorite for 2D and 3D. When both are put together, I will give the edge to 3D.

So Super Mario Galaxy 2 it is. So varied and creative, even after thinking that I saw it all in Galaxy 1. Plus I love that New Game Plus that instead of just making the same game harder actually changed its focus.

@Boxmonkey

I disagree. Dedicated gamers would have a Wii U and something else to get the best out of both worlds, so they won't care about third party games not coming to Wii U.

Besides, you make it sound as if Nintendo won't release more games than the ones they have already announced.

sinalefa commented on Ubisoft Executive Talks Up Super Smash Bros. a...:

I find it funny that people are expecting MK8 to sell millions of Wii U in one month, when the franchise has always been a slow burn approach. 3DS did not improve overnight and with a single "killer app", so why should Wii U?

As for Just Dance, I will just pass.

I really need to support these guys with my money. I was wondering what happened to Kickbeat.

You always see big developers making excuses while the small studios are very supportive and enthusiastic, despite having it harder because of lower budgets. Way to go guys!

sinalefa commented on Check Out Project Colour Park - Heading to Wii...:

@Sean_Aaron @JamesCoote

I do agree that a part of the population should not be ignored. The other thing is that there are different kind or degrees of colour blindness, so shapes usually work the best. A game like Peggle put symbols on the hard to see pegs to distinguish them.

With that said, if a game is not colour blind friendly, there is a huge chance I won't even take the plunge, instead of taking the risk and see if maybe that particular game won't affect me. While seeing a colour blind mode will help us to feel included, thus encouraging a purchase because of goodwill.

I hope you can gather feedback from colour blind people (if I can help you in any way please let me know) to work the best solution.

Based on that video, Notch is cheating. He did not even pour the whole bucket over his head.

It would be loads of fun to see Reggie doing this. And he should nominate Peter Moore and Yves Guillemot for their unwavering support ;)
