Sir_JBizzle commented on Super Smash Bros. on 3DS Lacks Circle Pad Pro ...:

@IceClimbers you said almost the same thing I was going to say.. Besides, the game at the center of discussion, Smash Bros. It's not like it's unplayable on the new hardware, or even crippled for that matter, well unless you care about suspend states and Miiverse.

As far as the New 3DS, I'm sure they'll keep the exclusives to a few, just like they did with the GBC and DSi...

@Punished_Boss This may go down as the longest thread in NintendoLife history! I don't know how versed you are in urban vernacular, but the thirst is real in this comment section!. [insert Vegeta "it's over 9000 gif here]

That said, I do have more codes than I do actual friends that have 3DSes, so I'm going to start at the bottom of this page with the first two I saw when I started typing out this comment. Have either @MegaStoneSmash91 or @IceClimbers received a code yet?



Sir_JBizzle commented on Guide: New Nintendo 3DS - Everything We Know S...:

Kind of sucks that we gotta wait until 2015 for the new 3DS but I understand the logic, as they want to sell Wii U's in their larger markets this holiday.

I'll probably get the XL flavor, but I wish they had the removable face plates as well, though I'm sure there will be some cool aftermarket ones avaliable after launch.

I like the switch to Micro SD, but I wonder if the new 3DS will read exFAT? Not that I'll have a TON of digital games to fill a 128GB micro SD, but I'd love the option to put one in without resulting to tomfoolery.

Excuse my ignorance in this topic as I've only had one XL, but with WiFi transfer, does this mean I will be able to transfer all my NNID info to the PC from my old one so I can sell it and get the new one and transfer it to that? I've heard people having headaches about that, as you needed your new and old 3DS's at the same time to do a system transfer. Or did those headaches just predate the introduction of the NNID?



Sir_JBizzle commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

@kyuubikid213 I doubt the Wii U will have a hardware revision, there's no way they'd be able to justify that without ticking early adopters off. Nintendo has always had a million revisions of their handhelds, so it's part for the course for me personally.

I think if anything like it's been said. This brings the 3DS some sense of parity to the Wii U, where the extra juice/hardware additions will allow some cross platform functionality. I'd imagine this revision is mentioned to extend the 3DS to the end of Nintendo's Gen 8, so they could possibly release that hybrid console/portable for gen 9. That's if the rumors check out. That's my crazy thinking at work. Lol



Sir_JBizzle commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

@KDChronos right. Just looking at it in videos don't do them justice. They're not so bad when you get to experience them yourself. That said, it'd suck if you got in an online race and all the racers were driving them, though we won't have to worry about that more than likely since the issue was so divisive. Lol



Sir_JBizzle commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:

I love the incoming DLC. It's truly a shining example of DLC done right, being that like it was said, we'll likely only get one Mario Kart this console cycle. So that alone separates it from games that tend to be yearly installments like Madden and CoD and even games that may get two or three installments in a console generation. Speaking of Madden, I feel like this is something they could do with that franchise, pay for the core game every few years and pay for updates.

What I'm more excited about is the fact that this will probably be the start of Smash Kart for Nintendo's next console where they can get creative not only with courses and characters but with some of the weapons and mechanics!

@Progniss I had thought of that, but I just thought they would've just limited amiibo support to just the characters available in Mario Kart 8, which is probably why it took everyone by surprise. I think what shocked people the most is that it kinda came out of the blue, with no fanfare save that it came on the eve of the update that was already planned.

Just thinking everything over now, I wouldn't be surprised if they just turn Smash into a franchise across all of their party games from here on out. Mario Party 10 will surely have other Nintendo characters in it now. Along with their other sports games like Golf, Tennis, Strikers et al...



Sir_JBizzle commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

@Jazzer94 Ahhh thanks. I haven't had my coffee yet lol. Though I always wondered why Nintendo does that? I've been assuming to have one solid number across all regions because it looks better in print or something... Is this problem unique to Nintendo, or does Sony and Microsoft do this as well?



Sir_JBizzle commented on Mario Kart 8 Update, Mercedes Karts and DLC Pr...:

@Jazzer94 isn't it like $20 American dollars? I always thought that was kind of a rip. Because even in the US states where you have to pay an Internet sales tax, it's still going to total way under 20.

@KJ85 to be fair €12 is closer to $16 here in the states, so once again if a particular State has to pay an Internet sales tax, then that closer in line with out of pocket cost than the pound. Though please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. My economics may be a little screwy. It's early here. Lol



Sir_JBizzle commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

Wait... Wat?! So much awesomeness I think my head is gonna explode!!!


Nintendo just wants all my money! attention industry: this is how you do DLC!

Speaking of heads exploding, I'm assuming @IxC erased his comment? I read this and I was totally eager to see what he had to say, but alas, I was too late...



Sir_JBizzle commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:

@IxC well we don't know anything yet, so we probably shouldn't get all worked up over something that may not even be in the cards at all. Though I do understand your concern.... If they do anything DLC wise, it'll probably be long after the fact and more than likely substantial DLC like Luigi U. At least I hope it would...



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


"I don't know if it is a good word for it, but the PS4 and X1 make the whole thing seem so much more sophisticated"

I'd say the word you're looking for is seamless. I love Nintendo, but some things they do are absolutely brilliant, while others at times are so disjointed it's maddening! Lol



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

@TCGiceman595 funny you mention Killer Instinct, as that was the game that prompted my purchase as well! Of course there are a few other games that I bit on, but KI was the tipping point. Lol

@Punished_Boss the way I've always seen it, and maybe because I'm paticularly varied in my gaming taste, all systems have and don't have everything I need or want to play. That's mostly on the exclusives front. Had the Wii U had every 3rd party game I could ask for, I'd still have a hole in my collection that could only be filled by Halo and Infamous. Without Nintendo, I wouldn't have Mario, Zelda, et al... Though I do know what you're getting at.

For someone who wanted a varied gaming experience that absolutely needed Link in their lives would be out of luck if they could only buy one system but also had a hankering for American Football... Or Fifa... Or the Newest FPS... Or at least some of the top Franchises...



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

Echoing the sentiments of the others in here... Where's the option "I have all three"? In my case it would be four because I have powerful PC built that I could game on but don't.

BTW nice talking point. Especially after the heated discussion we had on the Ubi article yesterday. This sums everything up nicely!



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


"Why do people keep forgetting Smash is also on 3DS?"

Probably because we're on the topic of the viability of the Wii U. I think there's a foregone conclusion among everyone that Smash 3DS will do extremely well.

@StuOhQ Well said. I wouldn't be surprised if the Wii U gave Sony and Microsoft a run for their money this holiday season. As it stands Nintendo has the stronger library and backlog. Unless you like the CoDs, ACs and Maddens, there's not a whole lot on the table for either one this holiday.

Like @Einherjar said, it takes a shift in perception for people to latch on to the Wii U. Though not so much the fanbase, but the media and retailers like GameStop. I don't need a their employees telling me "I'm not much of a Nintendo guy" when I go to buy something Nintendo related or I happen to have a Link or Mario shirt on. They should start selling the reasons why Wii U would be a great purchasing option, especially to those who may have an XB1 or PS4. As @sinalefa stated, it's a great console for a core gamer to have alongside one of the other 8th gens. And really, if played right, it's not really a bad place for Nintendo to be or a horrible strategy as long as it brings them profits and keeps them in the black.



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

@BakaKnight That's not a bad way of deciding at all!

As for me, I picked Super Mario World. Personally for me, that game brought me so much joy. It was so full of life and colour as a Mario platformer that hasn't really been replicated in the 2D space (at least as far as Mario games are concerned). It's one I could go back and play many times over (Plus I'm a huge fan of caped Mario haha)

I almost chose Mario 64 because it brought that same feeling to me, except in a 3-D space. Plus it set the bar for all 3D platformers going forward and still pretty much holds up today.



Sir_JBizzle commented on Fifa 15 Coming to Wii and 3DS on the 26th of S...:

For anybody that doubted EAs 'unprecedented' relationship with Nintendo, there you have it. :-)

While it's good that Nintendo is getting some sort of support, I can't help but to feel like Wii U owners are being trolled with this move. Though from a business perspective, I understand the move.



Sir_JBizzle commented on Talking Point: The Pokémon Trading Card Game ...:


Oh these comments should be fun read

I couldn't agree more! Though I wish when people go on rants, they would split it into paragraphs... But that's none of my business... :-)

Concerning the article, I agree with it by the way. To add, most people who play TCG, digital or otherwise are fans of Pokémon anyway, which means they more than likely are Nintendo fans or at the very least own a Nintendo system even if to exclusively play Pokémon main entries, so I don't see how this is exactly hurting anything.

Though I have been back and forth on the whole Nintendo to mobile thing, and while I wouldn't want to see repurposed IP for mobile, it wouldn't exactly hurt Nintendo to to crack open their war chest a bit to hire a mobile development team that makes games tailored for smartphones/tablets, then save the really good stuff for their consoles and handhelds...



Sir_JBizzle commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

I think the problem people are having is the clear oversight on Nintendo's part to even allow Miiverse sharing just to do an about face. And obvously it would suck if they disabled it at all in the first place, because sure, you can share your work via Image Share and save the work to your SD card, but your Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr audience is most likely not the same audience as the Miiverse community, where as you know beyond a shadow of a doubt that people are in the Comic Workshop community to look at other people's work. Posting to Miiverse > posting to social media at large.

On one hand, I agree with @Great_Gonzalez that we need to blame the people posting unacceptable images, but at the same time it doesn't make it suck any less. Perhaps a happy medium like this would be that perhaps when developers make games like this they should have to hire their own Miiverse mods? I don't know. I still enjoy this piece of software anyways.



Sir_JBizzle commented on Mario Kart 8 Secures Place as Top-Selling SKU ...:

@Agent721 @jrob23 we also need to remember that Mario Kart 8 is a long tail game. I wouldn't be surprised if it starts moving units again during the holiday. But yea, like Agent said, it's pretty solid numbers in comparison to previous figures. Hopefully this signals a turnaround, at least in the moderate sense.



Sir_JBizzle commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):


It was all a dream!
No wait... you play from the perspective of a ghost!
Or... you were responsible for the murder in question!
Just kidding, aliens!
I mean, it's a flash-forward to the future when you solve the mystery of your own death in the past!

Those aren't all bad. Weren't a few of those scenarios alt endings for the first couple Silent Hill titles? Of course those were excellent games, so there's that :-)



Sir_JBizzle commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):

Now you can't have your cake and eat it too. You complain about games like Skyward Sword holding your hand, then finally a game comes along and gives you no tutorial and you give it a hard time. ;-)

Okay seriously, the developer actually gave you a copy to review? I wouldn've been way too ashamed to do that. Lol. I give you guys props for the thought you put in the review :-)



Sir_JBizzle commented on Talking Point: Should Nintendo Be Promoting Th...:

@gatorboi352 Google provided a nifty streetview app for Wii U, so maybe they wouldn't need Skype. Google could provide a Hangouts app. I'm sure a good chunk of Wii U owners have a Google account now due to MKTV

Concerning the article, they should avoid marketing it as a tablet, because of the Gamepad limitations, but it wouldn't hurt to try to sway app developers to developing for the Wii U, so as long as it's paticular apps that would enhance the Wii U and not like the iOS or Play Store where it's crammed with a million apps that do the same thing.

Hopefully Nintendo's next system expands on the Gamepad idea and it doubles as a beast portable unit as well.



Sir_JBizzle commented on Play: It's The Second Nintendo Life Community ...:

I finished with a meager 135. Back to the practice track it is! Some of you guys are boss on the track what's your secret? Maybe I'm not using the right combo of racer/kart/wheels.

Bright spot of my time (outside of all the fun I had) I managed to get in a group with @ThomasBW84. It was an honor and pleasure getting smoked by you! Haha



Sir_JBizzle commented on Tomonubu Itagaki Thinks Gamers Will Buy A Wii ...:

Even if it sells one system, it technically makes it a system seller, no? :-) Semantics aside, by the time this game comes out it may not even need to move systems if the Wii U install base is robust enough. Polish the game, put some marketing behind it, Devil's Third could see a decent return.
