I'm actually really happy Wii U did poorly. After Wii Nintendo got a big head. They thought the success would carry over and it didn't. Due to that, they have been working really hard to get quality games and things like Amiibo into gamers hands.

@kereke12 it helps people who want to get into digital art using interactive step by step instructions using characters you would like to draw. If that isn't something you enjoy, don't buy it. So far I have enjoyed the lessons and can see an improvement in my skills.

Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@AlexOlney Samus has never been out for herself. She is a bounty hunter, yes, but she also works closely with the Galactic Federation. In Other M, she was not in command of the mission so had to follow the rules. In other games that the Federation appears in, she was in command. For example in Metroid 2, they hired her to exterminate the Metroids. After that, she took the baby Metroid to a Federation science station. She was also hired to escort the soldiers in Fusion, when she got attacked. Just because we haven't had dialogue before doesn't mean that she is a silent hunter. She is strong, she is skilled but in Other M she is suffering an existential crisis after her "enemy" gave it's life to save her.

Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

I want to know why some people hate the character in Other M. Prior to that game we had practically no characterization of any kind for Samus. This macho bounty hunting woman idea is purely in the minds of the gamer. In fact, the times we do see her with characterization in Gameboy games, she is obviously a compassionate person. Saving the baby Metroid in Metroid 2, her monologues during cut scenes and talking to Adam in Fusion, they all connect to the character portrayed in Other M.

Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

Samus, over the years she has put more and more clothes on and people whine that she is being sexualised. This was simply a whim by a designer who wanted to get these designs in for a character she loves. There is nothing wrong with this. Why can't Samus have a down time wardrobe? Should she spend her life in her Zero Suit or Power Suit? Please take a look at this: http://imgur.com/M0475Qa

This is pre E3 sales right? I have witnessed a sharp intake of Wii U units since the awesome E3 show. A few gamer groups I am in (not just Nintendo ones) became littered with "I need a Wii U" threads and people buying them.

Trikeboy commented on Nintendo's McDonald's Toys Are Rather Popular ...:

@Nintendofan83 Sony is big because until recently, Nintendo didn't have strong presence in Korea so games were either in English or Japanese. However, Nintendo finally opened up a Korean branch and many games are localised. Many kids love the DS. 3DS came out here two years ago too. Wii U isn't here yet unless it's a Japanese import for some reason.

I was already interested in getting Hyrule Warriors based on footage from Nintendo Direct and the Digital Event however the Treehouse presentation made it jump right to the top of my Must Buy list. Nintendo may have single handedly changed E3. Remember the year it was cancelled because it had gotten stale? Nintendo, as usual, has shown how it can and should be done. The bland, dark and samey titles shown over at Sony and Microsoft just cannot compare to what Nintendo brought to E3 this year.

We've seen practically nothing but I'm so freaking excited for this game. There is also a rumor going around that Miyamoto said it should be finished by next year. That's great considering this is still kinda in tech demo stage.

@Shiny_Sentret I think we will see Mother 3. Two of the call outs during the Robot Chicken sections were for Star Fox, which we know is coming and Mother 3. When pressed about it in the IGN after show Reggie said he had nothing to announce right now. There is a slot for an unannounced Nintendo game. I have a feeling its that.

It makes sense, if Nintendo can't pull things around, they won't waste money on marketing etc. It is annoying that there is a completed Wii U game out there that isn't released but I understand the reasons. E3 is Nintendo's for the taking this year. Microsoft and Sony, while having one or two highlights, had poor shows. Nintendo can't let this opportunity pass them by. Bring your AAA quality products and sell that console Nintendo.

Trikeboy commented on Rumour: Grainy Image of "Mario Maker" and Nint...:

Nintendo have been working on games that require the Wii U Gamepad and wouldn't be possible without it. This could be it. It could also be the start of a Maker franchise. Imagine Zelda Maker, Metroid Maker or, please, Pokemon Maker. Given the number of fan made Mario games they've shut down, making a series of engines available for bedroom programmers could be a lucerative way forward for Nintendo.

Trikeboy commented on Ubisoft Reconfirms Watch Dogs For Fall 2014 Re...:

I played it on my PC. The game is dull and repetitive. It's glitchy and has terrible physics. I feel like I'm driving on ice. The missions get very samey and unforgiving. If they fix the game, I may consider buying it. It's another case of Ubisoft promising something awesome but the end product is a let down. As a Nintendo fan, I'm used to their lies but I wish I didn't have to put up with them.

Trikeboy commented on Mario Kart Month: Nintendo Life's Team Shares ...:

Love it, love it, love it. It also has the return of an old favorite, Yoshi Valley from N64. One thing gets to me though. Sometimes during play back the characters look all black with no texture. I wonder why that happens.

Trikeboy commented on Hyrule Warriors Screenshots and Gameplay Detai...:

While it is foolish to get hyped for something, don't judge it by it's cover. Aliens Colonial Marines and Star Wars Episode 1 proved that hype doesn't lead to a quality product. I really want this game to be fantastic though and I know it will be a day one purchase for me. The designs are great though I feel the original characters just don't look like they came from the Zelda universe. They are too Team Ninja if that makes any sense.
