Tritonus commented on Video: Take a Closer Look At Super-Secret Base...:

@GuSolarFlare Okay, so no way to retrieve my original Pokemon, so sad :( They will be forever locked away in their pokeballs. I really did grow quite attached to them! It must have been 15 years now. Good times.

Thanks for answering that though. How about my other question, should I get x/y or wait for these games?



Tritonus commented on Video: Take a Closer Look At Super-Secret Base...:

For someone who hasn't played Pokemon since the original gameboy game, (pokémon yellow) and a brand new owner of a 3ds, would you recommend me buying x/y or hold out for OmegaRuby/Alpha Sapphire to get back into the series? Is there any story-line continuity? Would it make sense to build up your pokédex in one game first, rather then the other?

Also, is there any way to get your pokemon from an old gameboy cartridge onto your 3ds (I had all 151, mewtwo and all...)?



Tritonus commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

@Psyclone I've always been a PC + Nintendo guy. Somehow it seems you get the best of both worlds that way. Most PS3/XBOX games make it to PC anyways, and my PC can do faaaaar better than a PS4 on the graphics side.

That being said, I have a real post-graduate job now making actual money, so maybe my one-console days are over.

I am a Nintendo fan forever at heart though. Loving my Wii U and newly bought 3ds to bits.



Tritonus commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

The thing that worries me the most is how crummy the game is still looking.

I hate to say it, because Mega Man is one of my favorite franchises ever, but this just doesn't look good enough, and I'm not sure any additional $ will ever help that.



Tritonus commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

As a gamer, I would always buy a dedicated handheld for my kids. Tablets are just not the same. The gaming experience on a tablet/phone is really shallow.

However, tablets are good for the smaller kids who can't handle challenging gameplay, and they also do come in handy for video playback.



Tritonus commented on Bayonetta 2 Director Eager to "Nurture" the Se...:


Personally, I'm way more exited for Beyonetta 1+2 than for Hyrule Warriors.

I'm a huge Zelda fan, but I've never played any dynasty warriors games or even Beyonetta 1, but juding by what I've seen I simply think Beyonetta looks more fun. Something looks a little off in Hyrule Warriors to me.



Tritonus commented on Two Separate Bayonetta 2 Retail Releases Confi...:

I really hope they release both games digitally in Europe as in the US.

Not a fan of physical media. However, if that's the way it's gotta be, then bring on the disc version.

Why they would add another physical version without Beyonetta 1 is really confusing though if it's all the same price.



Tritonus commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS Retail Games ...:

I really think the trailers they showed for Sonic Boom at E3 look really promising. Especially the fact that one will be 3D adventure, while the 3DS will be 2.5D platforming, and the games will feed into each other. I might just pick them both up, as I'm getting a 3DS for Smash.



Tritonus commented on Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is ...:

Unified Accounts
HBO <------------
Dedicated looking for players rooms on Miiverse, since you removed that option, miiverse has been kinda dead for me.
Stability, performance improvments
Nintendo TVii in Europe
Integrated games catalogue, to keep track of what games you have completed, and at what %.
No region lock.
Pikmin 3 Online Play for battle mode!

Those would be my top priorities. I wouldn't mind seeing a return of Everybody votes channel, the mii contest channel, news and weather channel.



Tritonus commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

Though I'm probably looking forward to LoZ more, I voted Beyonetta 1 as I did NOT see that one coming. We all knew LoZ was coming so the reveal wasn't as surprising to me as Beyonetta 1 being included for free in Beyonatta 2 purchase.



Tritonus commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's GamePad Bet Could Pa...:

Off-tv play is so underrated!

Lately I've been playing more on the gamepad than on the tv, it's so freaking great. My family can watch tv, and I can even bring the wii u to places where the tv isn't needed... Currently my Wii u is borderline portable, as I have it in my backpack when I go from my apartment to my parents' place.



Tritonus commented on E3 2014: Wii U eShop Version of Bayonetta 2 Do...:

@burninmylight I usually go for digital just because I find it more convenient not to have a bunch of physical discs lying around - also makes your Wii U that much more portable! But, if there's a good deal on a physical game I'm not gonna hold back. Plus, physical discs you can lend to your family and friends.

Both formats have their advantages, but for me personally, digital wins out.

It's also a matter of the fact that Nintendo is not doing so well in Denmark where I currently reside, and I've gotten sick of going to a store only to find out that they don't have the games because I happen to live in PlayStation land. The eShop doesn't have that problem.



Tritonus commented on E3 2014: Time for Another Blowout of Nintendo ...:

I think Sonic Boom, both the Wii U version and 3DS version, looks really good. I'm not the biggest sonic fan, but with the 3DS version feeding into the Wii U version and with the way that they both look, I might just pick up both.

That, and Sonic Lost World is on sale now so will finally try that one out.



Tritonus commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Launches 30% Off Discount Bo...:

Sonic and Wind Waker for me! Thank god I picked W101 as my free game from Mario Kart, was going back and forth between those three games.

Omg games blowout, don't have time to play it all, still working on Pikmin 3 and MK8, (and ACIV and Splinter Cell)!



Tritonus commented on E3 2014: Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms Star Fox fo...:

@ACK I still think Miyamoto is one of the greatest, if not the greatest, game developer living today / has ever lived.... Heck, I'm still playing Pikmin 3 Mission (+DLC) mode all the time - So addictive, so unique, relaxing and mind bending and exiting all at once.

If he can pull a Pikmin 3 with Starfox U, I'll be happy as a clam.

Pikmin 3 might be my favorite game in years. Pikmin has surpassed StarCraft as the best strategy game on the market in my opinion. Let's see if Blizzard can top it with the eventual Warcraft IV.



Tritonus commented on E3 2014: Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms Star Fox fo...:

@ACK I'm not bashing the controls - personally I like Motion/gyro/pointer aiming and prefer it over anything else, but I'm merely stating that I don't believe that this will convince the sceptics.

That demographic I'm referring to generally don't want to "learn" controls, they just want to pick up and blast away, with autoaim dual stick controls as they have been doing for years.



Tritonus commented on E3 2014: Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms Star Fox fo...:

It sounds slightly similar to Metroid Blast from Nintendo Land...

I'll need to see more before making a judgement, but my initial gut says that it's not really a system seller... I mean lol-wut, this is a game that won't Demo well at stores = won't pull people in who don't already have the system...



Tritonus commented on Feature: Our Hopes and Dreams for E3 2014:

I seriously hope Next Level Games are working on a Mario Strikers for Wii U... That was really one of the best games on Wii, and had fantastic online competitive and co-op play.

Also, Luigi's Mansion 3 on Wii U would actually be really awesome. Off-tv/gamepad room scanning anyone? It makes perfect sense...

Anyways, hoping for:

New Metroid U
New Zelda U
Mario Strikers for Wii U
Luigis Mansion 3 for Wii U
Fire Emblem for Wii U
Full Pokemon (Online) game for Wii U
Starfox for Wii U



Tritonus commented on Slew of Capcom Titles Announced for North Amer...:

So awesome! Mega man was one of my favorite games back in the day but never got to play anything but mega man 3 for NEW, mega man x for SNES, and mega man zero for GBA.

X2 on Wii U was a blast, as was mega man 2. Sweet!



Tritonus commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Summe...:

Voted Pikmin 3 on the poll. Those mission mode stages are so much fun, trying to score platinum, and added stylus controls are the best for off-tv play!

I personally think ZombiU deserves a spot on the list though.

Also, games like ACIII, ACIV, Batman Arkham Origins / City, Splinter Cell and Injustice, while maybe not deserving of a spot in the top 10, are all good games and have given me much enjoyment.

Wii Sports Club too! Golf and Tennis is much improved + Online play!

The Wii U library is really shaping up to be quite epic. So much replay value in the games! AND still have yet to try W101, Sonic Lost World, Darksiders II, Deus Ex, Skyward Sword, Minish Cap, Earthbound...

Upcoming games got me hyped for the future too. Smash, Beyonetta, Zelda U, Hyrule Warriors, (Watch_Dogs), X, Sonic Boom...

If the Wii U doesn't take off in 2014, I'll feel bad for Nintendo because they really are starting to get their stuff together.



Tritonus commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

Guess I have to buy a 3DS now...

I think this is a really weird move by Nintendo. They should do all they can to boost Wii U sales, and this ain't helping. I already have a Wii U, but considering this is a game that might convince people to buy the Wii U, I think the fact that the 3DS version comes out first will seriously undermine the Wii U sales...



Tritonus commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Only Sell...:

Nintendo's biggest mistake?

Making the 3DS and Wii U experiences too similar.

3DS has a Mario 3D Land VS Wii U Mario 3D World
3DS has Donkey Kong C:R VS Wii U Donkey Kong C: TP
3DS has Mario Kart 7 VS Wii U Mario Kart 8
3DS has Sonic Lost World, as does Wii U

3DS will get Smash Bros 3DS, like Smash Bros. on Wii U
3DS will get Sonic Boom, like Wii U

Nintendo is not giving enough reason why people should invest in a Wii U rather than a 3DS.

Smash won't save Wii U as it will be coming on 3DS. Neither will MK8, since a perfectly fine MK is out on 3DS. Nintendo needs to start differentiating a bit more if they want people to buy both a 3DS and a Wii U.

Does the Wii U need to be saved? I don't really think so. I'm enjoying the great games it has - it's like GameCube all over, which was my favorite console by far.



Tritonus commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

Am I one of the only ones here who still have TONS of games to play?

There are still so many games that came out in 2013 that I want to play that makes me not worry about 2014 at all...

The games coming out in 2014 should keep me more than busy... Kart and Smash are going to have so much replay value that I doubt they will leave me wanting for much else, and DKCTP, Beyonetta 2, X and Watch_Dogs will be more than enough for once I even start playing titles that I've yet to play: W101, WWHD, Deus Ex, Sonic Lost World, ACIV... and many more in my backlog I've yet to finish... SM3DW, Rayman, Luigi U, Splinter Cell, Pikmin DLC...

There are so many great games out - I for one have difficulty understanding how people can talk about a drought...



Tritonus commented on AE Games Reveals Mad Men Football, High Impact...:

I've been thinking this exact thing: The lack of sports games on Wii U is a golden opportunity for other games companies to try their hand at sports games.

Hell, even Nintendo should open their own sports division.



Tritonus commented on Watch_Dogs Delayed Again on Wii U, Will Arrive...:

I actually don't really care about this, I have so many other games, and a busy life besides gaming that I can definitely wait until fall if that's the time it comes out.

Would rather have gamepad support than play it on any other system too.
