@aaronsullivan Thats what I thought when I played the demo at Best Buy. "Oh this is so repetitive and boring!" However, the Zelda fanboy in me decided to pick it up anyways a few days after release. Bets choice I have made in a while. The demo was boring since it was just the first level. Once you get into the meat of the game with the scenarios getting much more difficult, unlocking cool combo's/upgrading characters, and playing through Adventure Mode...Hyrule Warriors is a must have.

I love physical copies, but I just wish we knew in advance that the digital releases were getting a physical version. I bought NES Remix as soon as it was available after the initial Nintendo Direct, and I have yet to buy NES Remix 2 (since I want to gold border every or at least most of the games). So essentially I could buy the physical release, but it just seems counter intuitive and a waste of $15 extra bucks. So ideally, in the future it would be great to hear about these physical releases a lot earlier so we can decide which we want to purchase.

Great to see we got Minish Cap. However, seeing as I have a backlog of games (especially virtual console) and still having a blast with MK8, I don't see myself picking it up for some time. Just glad I know it's on there now, so I can add it to my wishlist!

suburban_sensei commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

This is going to be an excruciating wait till May 30th. This and Smash are THE reasons I bought a Wii U. Everything I have bought till now has been filler (even if they have been quite good games). Also I pre-ordered at Target so I got a Mario Kart key chain, so everytime I go for a drive I am reminded that this beautiful gem is RIGHT around the corner. Can't wait to see a lot of you on the track. Speaking of, here is my NNID if you have not added me, so we can play: Suburban_Sensei

Ducktales: Remastered for $7.49 is a steal, I urge anybody who was on the fence about it to just pick it up if you enjoyed the original or just like good platformers. Even at $15, I never regretted downloading the game! As far as what I am downloading this week, probably nothing until SMB 3, Yoshi's Island (GBA), and NES Remix 2 over the next couple weeks. I just did the Target buy 2 get 1 free sale, got Bravely Default, Prof. Layton & the Azran Legacy, and Yoshi's New Island, so I have been showing my 3DS some love.

I don't care where we see them, i'm just glad some of my favorite GBA titles are now available. I feel like more times than not, I will just be playing them on the gamepad, since it actually looked like an oversized GBA. The titles they are launching the first month are amazing, I can think of 2-3 I know I will be buying.

I love the original Yoshi's Island, and love mostly anything Nintendo. For some reason though, this game just doesn't seem as appealing. Maybe it's just been the talk of it being easier, and from the gameplay footage it does look a little more boring...I just hope after its released that my doubts are proven wrong, because I want to feel nostalgic about the original. Thats WHY I am a Nintendo fan, really.

suburban_sensei commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Shows Off Two Favourite...:

That was fun to watch, it's getting me excited for Friday. This is the first time in a long time I have been eagerly awaiting a game. I am just so afraid of spoiling too many levels, so I think after this, I am done, I don't want to see ANYMORE levels!

suburban_sensei commented on Talking Point: The Watch_Dogs Wii U Delay Demo...:

My stand on "no 3rd party support" for the Wii U is this...I don't have the time I used to to play games, so to be honest I pretty much stick to mainly the Nintendo franchises. I do this because a) I'm a long-time fan, of course and b) I know it will be quality. I work two jobs and go to college, so at the end of the day I would rather play a good, old-fashioned Nintendo game. I understand for people with more free time and have no other ways of playing those 3rd party games (PC or other consoles) may get upset by the fact it's getting little support. For me though, I don't mind, just hope the system doesn't have a small lifespan because of it...

suburban_sensei commented on Review: Retro City Rampage: DX (3DS eShop):

Glad to see the 9/10, the game deserves it. Had this for the 360, and for somebody like me (born in '87, but more of a 90's kid.) this game is ideal. It was so good that, since I don't have my 360 anymore, I had been holding out on this release because I think the graphics and gameplay really lend themselves better to a portable/smaller screen experience.

I would kill for a Zelda lego set. Even though I am an adult, I really respect those huge lego sets (they are usually $2-300), and would proudly display them in my place. I love the Star Wars ones, and if they had a detailed Zelda set around that size/price, I would still pick it up.

suburban_sensei commented on Mario Kart 8 Drifting In For a May Release:

May is good, and actually sooner than I thought we would get it...I expected mid-late summer. I feel like with DK Tropical Freeze and a few DS titles coming out, I am set on waiting a few more months, we all know the wait will be worth it!

suburban_sensei commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

I was one of those people unsure about the gamepad, but I find more and more I am loving it. I even use it more times than not with games that let you have different options (Wind Waker, for example) because I like having all my items/maps, etc. right there in front of me at all times. I am getting so tired of so much Nintendo news just freaking out over them losing money, maybe making poor business decisions. I think they are having a rough patch right now, but it will smooth out when AAA titles like Smash Bros and Mario Kart come out.

2014 looks like its off to a great start. In the coming months I have my mind set on picking up Yoshi's New Island, DK: Tropical Freeze, and Kirby Triple Deluxe. After that AAA titles like Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros (Maybe both versions, for good measure) will be next on my list!

Good to see they are at least getting somewhere. Sure it is a minor annoyance, since I have an eshop card coming in today, but I have plenty to play. Got WW HD and Asassins Creed IV for Christmas, on top of all the games I bought recently, so just hope Nintendo sorts it out sooner rather than later.

suburban_sensei commented on Nintendo Download: 19th December (North America):

Nothing for me from that list, but I will be picking up NES Remix this weekend. We still have a little time left in the year (what 2 weeks?) so perhaps we will still see SMB3 before 2014 arrives. I doubt we will get Link to the Past anytime soon, so I'll just stop holding my breath and enjoy Link Between Worlds.

suburban_sensei commented on Review: NES Remix (Wii U eShop):

Great review. I have $5 in my eShop wallet, so I think I will add another $10 and try this puppy out. As a gamer who grew up on the NES and SNES this looks down my alley. Just have to be patient and wait for Sunday when I get home from the in-laws.

suburban_sensei commented on Review: Super Mario 3D World (Wii U):

This game is going to suck up so much of my free time. I knew the reviews would be good, but man it seems to be 9-10's across the board! This is just what the Wii U needed to show people Nintendo can take care of its fans and make an experience that's fun for everybody. Can't wait for my copy to arrive Friday!

suburban_sensei commented on Performance of Batman: Arkham Origins Wii U Ve...:

This is extremely surprising to hear. I went through the entire story mode without a lot of trouble. I think once the screen froze on a black screen when I booted it up, and another time the frame rate dropped a bit. After I completed the game, I know one night I had issues with the framerate dropping so bad, it literally looked like it had frozen. On reddit, I remember reading that a lot of people said Wii U played better than the 360/PS3, I don't remember hearing about corrupt saves and things like that. Anyways, I am a Batman fan, so technical issues a side, I am still glad I picked this up.

suburban_sensei commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins (Wii U):

For Batman fans, the story alone makes this game worth a purchase. While I agree technically it is quite flawed, and Gotham is rather boring to glide around in, they really knocked it out of the park with some of the stuff going on in the plot (namely with the Joker.)

suburban_sensei commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

I could care less about the console wars. I feel if you have fun playing, who cares how much it is selling? Of course the investors and people at Nintendo care, we don't want them to have a failure, obviously. However, I think the Wii U is far from a failure, it's still finding its footing. 2014 will be a big year for the system, and I for one am happy to own a Wii U, and while im finishing college over the next 2-3 years, it will probably be the only console I have (other than my 3DS XL). After college maybe i'll spring for a PS4 if it's dropped to $300 or lower.

suburban_sensei commented on Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (3DS):

Excluding Turtles in Time, I can't really think of a great Turtles game, sadly. I am a big fan of the old show, Turtles in Time, and the movies, but can't really get into the new show, maybe I should give it another shot. This is a pretty typical score, I remember the last TMNT game I played was that Smash Bros. clone on the Wii, it was so "blah."
