Smug43 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

The Wii U had so much going against this generation that it makes it look bad to say the least. Nintendo thought people would ride the Wii wave that suddenly crashed into the shores and washed away with abandonment. Then they brought back the complexity of what the Wii originally captured.. just what was Nintendo thinking? However as a gamer I feel some games have been short changed due to the "complexities of HD" for Nintendo.. Pikmin 3 is quite short and didn't need touch screen options.. the whole game was overly complex in that regards for no reason.. it's a good game but content wise it's bare bones and it was delayed for the gamepad stuff, total waste! Good game, just not great which is what I was hoping for.. don't get me going on the DLC for that game which should have been included considering how little content it had.

There is a ton of good though... tons of exclusives alone warrants a purchase. At this point I would give it a B.

@Caryslan The thing is consumers HAVE decided and it's not on Nintendo platforms. It's been this way for a while and there is a more recent downturn with Wii U 3rd party sales.. Understand these games are more in line with the "enthusiast console" which provides the most power for graphical output.. these video game players are looking for the best looking version not to mention online functionality is much better on both ps4 and xbone. Most of these games didn't even sell that good on the Wii and it was a monster in terms of sell through. I doubt Nintendo will ever claim this part of the market nor do they seem to care and in time it might not matter as there has already been a cleansing of these types of games and the publishers.. Nintendo can't force anyone's hand and these companies are in fact their competition... who do you think will win in the long run? I know who I would put my money on even though people think a few 3rd party games are going to off Nintendo.. that my friend is loving hilarious!! I have a decent PC and can play all these games on it if I really wanted. Nintendo plus PC and a portable 3DS is all I need. To each their own!

Watch the profanity — TBD

The issue is Nintendo is no longer getting some 3rd party games that a LOT of people WANT!! I'm not saying I need 6 COD games per gen, one or two is more than enough.. but, it undermines the ability to actually buy these games on a console that can handle running them.. Nintendo definitely has culpability with regards to this issue.

no offense but it doesn't look all that much better than the free blue theme that's already available.. I'm sure the music and sfx will make it worth getting if it's free or .99 NA will never see this I take it??

Smug43 commented on Miley Cyrus Confuses Fans by Owning a Wii U:

So Nintendo is no longer "kiddie"? Or does this solidify that it is? I can't figure out which way it swings due to how immature she is but, her acts are so provocative that it's definitely not for kids.. I done got brain damage with this one!!!! ;)

an 8 out of 10?? Not sure how anyone in their right mind can score this game which deserves a perfect 10 out of 10!!!!!!!! I have been gaming for decades and this game is utterly brilliant on every single level!!! This is on my top 25 games of all time... yes, it's THAT f'ing great!!!!!!!!!!!!

Smug43 commented on Review: SteamWorld Dig (Wii U eShop):

9/10?? More like a 10/10!!! This is one of the single best games I have ever played and I have been gaming for decades.. I love EVERYTHING about it.. there are no cheap deaths.. always room to improve on speed runs etc..

Honestly if you have the choice I would go with the 3ds version if you own both just due to always being able to play it anywhere and years from now now worrying about compatibility of your old console on TV's etc.. I just like that I can turn it on anywhere anytime!

Smug43 commented on Review: Child of Light (Wii U eShop):

But it isn't "their problem" because they honestly don't give a sh!t.. and nobody did when we have other platforms clearly not as powerful as PC's or home consoles.. you are stating something that matters more to you than the majority..

In any case I have put some major time into this game and can say it's worth way more than $15.. it's phenomenal!

Smug43 commented on Review: Child of Light (Wii U eShop):

@jc3bull Your statement while mostly true really depends on the type of graphics.. for a game like this resolution is going to be a very minimal factor in noticeable difference.. for other types of media and game you can definitely notice the difference much easier.. I don't think it will detract from the game itself.. most games it really doesn't make a huge difference and the majority of people don't actually notice.. remember the Wii was SD and it sold boatloads of games..

oic Capcom being Capcom again? They should notice the Wii U ver. of MH3 U did pretty decent sales considering.. no U version, no buy... I own the 3ds and U ver. of MH3 and I just can't do much more than basic farming on the 3ds.. it just doesn't feel the same as on a huge screen.

The majority of Wii owners - "we never cared about graphics and we still don't"

Simple truth to a portion of the Wii U's problems. Either way, it's going to be home to some incredible exclusive titles.. and already is!! I really love the Wii U!!

Smug43 commented on Nintendo of America Issues Refunds After Warne...:

Glad I purchased the game for $20 used with the free DLC code still intact.. I had ZERO plan of buying any DLC.. I find the majority of DLC to be a COMPLETE F'ing RIP OFF!! You're pretty much a terrible consumer in my eye if you purchase this.. just go look at the "profit margin" spreadsheet for this tactic.. it's screwing over gamers and the gamers must love back door passes! NOT ME!! Very few companies offer "value dlc".. Nintendo being one of the very few.. even though I even found some of Pikmin 3 to be over priced!! Gof figure!

Smug43 commented on Kickstarter Campaign Launches For ReVeN:

but can SyRek crawl? lol j/k!!

In all honesty, if the game has really good mechanics and it's fun, who cares if it's a "rip off" "homage" to Metroid!! They are definitely doing plenty of different things so everyone chillax.. it's not like the Wii U has a FLOOD of games and we probably won't see another Metroid on the levels of the Prime series EVER AGAIN!! Now I wish for at least a 3DS iteration of the series.. but people, EVERY developer copies/borrows etc.. from others.. it's just the nature of gameplay mechanics!!

Why not just release the freaking game AS IT IS on the 3ds eshop for all regions and have a disclaimer it's in Japanese only.. we just want to play the game.. I could care less about the story to be honest!

The new business structure is to get ALL this iOS/android games on their platform!! Minecraft nearly single handedly killed a lot of potential consumers.. it's like Nintendo gave up the GBA/DS to their competition..

Smug43 commented on Iwata Accepts Responsibility For Poor Financia...:

Iawats's BIGGEST and probably single failure is the ability to ramp up HD developement during the Wii era.. they are easily two calendar years behind.. that is a MASSIVE mis step. It's why so many games were pushed back.. remember the "launch window" They also don't have enough titles in dev for the Wii U. The U itself is FAR FAR from a mistake other than it doesn't speak easily to the "casuals" It has more to do with so many disruptive technologies who happens to be in the same space as Nintendo. This is absolutely CRUSHING Nintendo. They will ride it out, pump out incredible games and people will still call for his resignation.. Why, because he is passionate about creating amazing games? Some people never cease to amaze me but in the end if it's about your stock in Nintendo, you need to understand the climate of the market and it's surroundings. Wii U is an incredible piece of technology.

if you are GOOD you won't die to some mistimed jump as you can repeatedly hit the A button to fly for a looong time... there is obvious adverse risk holding down A to speed up.. this review is off as I would give it an 8 easily.. it's a TON of fun.. very micro but that's what the game is trying to do!! buy it and support these dev's are awesome!!

Smug43 commented on Talking Point: Claims of Wii U Third-Party Dev...:

Keep talking about these "3rd party developers" and I can guarantee you Nintendo will out live every single one of them. If you look at the landscape you will see a lot of blood in the water.. why you ask? Give THQ a call.. or any of the other thousands of devs/pubs who have closed their doors or in bankruptcy court right now. As much as anyone thinks Nintendo "needs 3rd parties" they don't. EA has poisoned their games and fan base so much their relevancy is dropping fast. I see Ubisoft at least making an honest effort to make quality titles (hence why Watch Dogs was delayed).. Nintendo will ALWAYS have the last laugh.. Yammuchi is just waiting to rise from his grave and cackle.. Bottom line is, nothing is optimized from the start when it comes to dev tools and this "report" is freaking ridiculous.
