TruenoGT commented on Junichi Masuda Talks Pokémon Snap and Listeni...:

It'd be cool to make a Yoshi Safari / Pokemon Snap hybrid game, where one player controls a safari jeep on the TV while the other player rides along shooting photos with the gamepad.... wait how about just a new Wii U Yoshi Safari driving/shooting co-op game???! That'd be awesome!!

TruenoGT commented on Super Smash Bros. Website Introduces amiibo De...:

I'm not really an SSB fan in the traditional sense, but I do plan to pick up some Amiibos and this mode could be a lot more entertaining to me than the main game. It also allows those who aren't skilled action game players to participate in Smash Bros. In a more strategic and management way rather than direct fighting.

TruenoGT commented on Inquisitive Gamers Stumble Across Potential eS...:

Looking forward to being able to gift games. It would be great if NNID users could broadcast their wish list to the web so friends/family could purchase games on it for them. As someone making the transition to digital games, it would nice to have this instead of needing to ask for eshop cards. I'd love to buy small games for gamer friends who might have a wish list of eshop games.

Only one I don't have already is Kersploosh, so that's what I'm getting. I wish they'd put the original Startropics up, I got the sequel the last time it was offered. Was hoping for the return of some N64 games I wished I'd picked up the last few times.

Looking forward to Whoa Dave, was wondering what happened to that one. Overall though, kinda slim pickins compared to say, the Vita on the indie front. Would love to see more, particularly on the Japanese side, not that the western world could play them anyways.

TruenoGT commented on Review: KORG DSN-12 (3DS eShop):

I've owned all the Korg DS software with the best intentions, but I've never created anything notable with them. I just like to mess around with the sounds, especially DS10, DS10+. M01D was cool, but as expected wasn't as raw. I'm interested in checking this out for an upgraded DS10 experience.

TruenoGT commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

It's not a big deal to me personally as I prefer the classic and pro controllers generally, but there were a LOT of people excited about this and I feel bad for them. I'll only be disappointed if they don't eventually bring some GC love to the Wii U and with it support for the adapter.

TruenoGT commented on Nintendo 64x64: Turok 2:

I'm actually playing through this on PC right now (dat high res and 60fps). Never was able to beat it back in the day, but I remember being blown away by the production values of the N64 version when it first came out.

TruenoGT commented on Satoru Okada, Director Of Game Boy And DS Hard...:

Was reading a thread about his retirement on Neogaf the last day or two as well. I guess this kind of explains why there's such a difference in the industrial design between the DS and 3DS lines. I think the 3DS and XL are pretty nice designs generally, but nothing touches the build quality and simplicity of the last few DS models IMO. Hoping the N3DS brings it back to the quality of the DSi generation.

TruenoGT commented on We'd Be Cheating Fans By Bringing Assassin's C...:

It makes total sense on both fronts (horsepower for Unity and sales potential for Rogue), it's too bad that's the current state of affairs. I have to believe Nintendo thought they'd at least get ports of all the big multi-platform PS3/360 games when they designed the system. Looks like they didn't count on all the initial publishers half-donkeying it and ruining customer trust right out of the gates.

TruenoGT commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Fall ...:

Pretty quiet year on 3DS for me, though I'm still really enjoying Tomodachi Life. Not really anything big on my future radar, though I'm excited for more Sega 3D Classics, localization of A-Train and picking up some already released games like Gunvolt, and maybe The Keep and Umihara Kawase. If only they were localizing DQVII....

TruenoGT commented on Square Enix's Latest 3DS RPG Final Fantasy Exp...:

@DualWielding I'm with you on this one, I think the Pokémon thing was especially lame considering that it's Nintendo's most popular handheld franchise and it should be less demanding than say MK7 or SSB (which are 3D, 60fps and online!). I guess perhaps we should instead praise Capcom who've made an action with massive scope, 3D, CPP support AND online play with MH4!

TruenoGT commented on Super Smash Bros. Slams the Competition Yet Ag...:

Man, I don't understand the Japanese market at all anymore with Platinum's games doing so poorly and now Fatal Frame. Are there really so few "hardcore gamers" with Wii U (or willing to get one) in Japan or has good taste just gone out the window? I'll definitely do my part with Bayonetta in a few weeks and Fatal Frame should they choose to localize it...

TruenoGT commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:

Good to see they're still investing in the interface. I look forward to the day (as does Nintendo I'm sure) when the console and handheld run off the same backend platform and they don't need to develop such features from scratch on each system.

TruenoGT commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

One of my all time favorites, such a bold move with the simple, but fast graphics. If Nintendo could find a way to bring this game back along with an updated version of the 64DD track editor for 3DS or Wii U, I'd be in heaven.

TruenoGT commented on Nintendo 64x64: Excitebike 64:

Easily one of my favorite N64 games, super tight controls, very challenging and rewarding and so many fun modes. I loved the character the game had by having the announcer and the racer names. It would have been brilliant had they added this element to Excitetruck as well.

As for why it's not on VC (Wii or Wii U), this game is loaded with licenses and company logos. They'd have to retexture the whole game to bring it out today, unlike Waverace 64 which just had a couple of banners to replace. Frankly I don't think the game would play well without the N64 controller anyway so track down a cartridge and go for it! Well worth the trouble IMO.

I'm all for it and looking forward to seeing what Nintendo does with the extra oomph. The market is changing and I don't think Nintendo can wait 7-8 years between handheld generations anymore... This is a good 1/2 step for hardcore fans to enjoy which will bridge the gap until an all new system arrives in a few more years.

TruenoGT commented on Review: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Cal...:

I rather enjoy rhythm games and (some of) the Final Fantasy series, but I find the game play and aesthetics of this series too boring and too "90s flash animation" respectively compared to IMO much more entertaining games like the Rhythm Heaven series or Rhythm Thief. I think when you try to graft game play onto existing music, it doesn't work nearly as well as compositions made purposely for this type of game play... plus the FF series is so uneven with games you either love or hate, it's painful to deal with songs and characters from the games you dislike just to progress. To each their own however and I'm glad some people really enjoy it.

TruenoGT commented on Square Enix Temporarily Pulls 3DS Dragon Quest...:

True story that last night I had the oddest dream that Square Enix converted my childhood middle school into a launch party to announce the western release of DQX. It's extra weird as I'm not even that interested in the game itself!

TruenoGT commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Will Suppor...:

This is super lame. Even Kid Icarus supported the CPP. I don't understand how they can bend over backwards to support a 13 year old controller on the Wii U version and can't support a current generation peripheral for the 3DS version. I was actually just playing MGS3 last night with my CPP, love the ergonomics of that thing.

I bought the cart last year actually and was so confused by this game. I need to give it another go sometime and try to get over the initial hump. Definitely seemed very unique...

TruenoGT commented on Project CARS Wii U Delay Was To Ensure It's As...:

There's plenty other games to play so my wallet is thankful it won't be out until 2015. Who knows, maybe by the time it comes out, some extra cars and/or tracks will be included as a bonus. At the very least, we'll have plenty of general impressions to know if it's worth getting or not.

Is this the first footage of a real unit? They look pretty nice, hinge looks solid on the XL he was playing with. Too glossy though on the MH4 unit, can't wait to see the non-special units to get a better feel for the exterior XL finish... please don't be a finger print magnet!!

TruenoGT commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

@sillygostly You nailed it. I think this logic is actually a subset of why most 3rd parties are abandoning Nintendo. Install base, power disparity, control scheme disparity are all safe (and somewhat valid) excuses to state publicly, but in reality I think it's simply that no one wants to compete with Nintendo on their home turf.
