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.

Trikeboy commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Innovative E3 Approa...:

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.

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.

It's like when they tried to sue Nintendo over the dual screen of the DS but Nintendo had been doing that with the old a Game and Watch games. People just want to swim in Nintendo's money tower, Scrooge McDuck style.

@AyeHaley you don't need the GTS to make hacked Pokemon if you know what you are doing and have the right, fairly cheap hardware and software. My Pokemon are always legal would always pass the GTS security and make it through PokeTransfer. Others are not so inclined.

I'm hoping they work in a great story for this game. Setting it as a prequel to skyward sword where there was a huge battle between the humans and The Demon Army would be ideal. It's a time period a normal Zelda game wouldn't tell very well. I'm getting it anyway as Zelda is my favorite game franchise. A fresh take is good.

Trikeboy commented on This Pokémon Trainer Red Nendoroid is Ludicro...:

Nendoroids are awesomely cute. I've been collecting the Queens Blade ones. I also have Isabelle from Animal Crossing and Sonic the Hedgehog. I will get Red but I really hope we get him in Figma form too. On a related note, I picked this one up recently and she is Figma sized. http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/61S%2BGFZITcL.SL1500.jpg She needs a bit of customisation as there isn't much articulation in the arms and legs but she looks awesome.

Trikeboy commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire ...:

I'm SO looking forward to these games. Pokemon remakes always include new story points that go along with the old story (Sevii Islands in Fire Red/Leaf Green and Safari Zone and Kimono girls in Heart Gold and Soul Silver). I can't wait to find out what they added and when it occurs. I'm also itching to see if it will be in X/Y graphic style. If it is, I will probably die from the joygasm.

Trikeboy commented on Satoru Iwata Announces 'Nintendo Figurine Plat...:

This is a good move by Nintendo. People like to collect game merchandise and lately Nintendo figurines have been very expensive. Tying them into multiple games is also good so you don't have to buy a new set of figurines every time a new game comes out. They just have to makes sure the games and the figurines are worth spending the cash on. Also, make sure there are characters that people will want to buy.

I'm really getting excited for E3. As it's only 5 weeks away, I expect we will hear more localised news then, not before. However, this is Nintendo and they play by their rules.

Nintendo doing mechanizing? Will wonders never cease. Shops used to be filled with Nintendo products but now you hardly see anything. This could be one reason why Nintendo has left the cultural impact that it used to have.
