TruenoGT commented on Review: Tetris Ultimate (3DS):

Another vote for Tetris DS. Speaking of which, I wish Nintendo could manage to put retail DS games on the 3DS eShop, and retail Wii games on the Wii U eShop. Great way for people to catch up on some last gen classics that are hard to come by these days.



TruenoGT commented on NINJHAX Exploit Is All About Nintendo 3DS Home...:

There's like a half dozen other homebrew capable handhelds. I understand the appeal of doing this for 3DS, but looking at the big picture it's a bad move for the industry and a handheld that's already struggling to attract publishers. I think they should have waited until the 4DS or whatever was released.



TruenoGT commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

Guy's entitled to his opinions regarding the Vita (though I disagree wholeheartedly), but he's dead wrong about the casual void left by the Wii being latent. It's been filled with smartphones and tablets without question. Sony has as much hope of capturing it back as any other dedicated video game device.... ZERO.



TruenoGT commented on Table Top Racing: World Tour Dev Isn't Sure Ab...:

That's like not releasing a 2D action game because Super Mario Bros. is on the system... clearly that hasn't stopped other companies/indies from releasing and having great success with similar styled games. If you like MK8, you might be interesting in checking this out for some variety!



TruenoGT commented on Review: Pier Solar and the Great Architects (W...:

I don't know, there's plenty of classic 16-bit RPGs I haven't played yet and I'd rather have the real deal. Wish Square Enix would localize some of their SNES RPGs for Virtual Console that never made it west such as Treasure Hunter G, Bahamut Lagoon, Seiken Densetsu 3, Live A Live, etc, etc, etc. Like that'll happen!



TruenoGT commented on Nintendo Aiming To Create A Stronger Bond With...:

I understand the need for them to do this because the majority of potential customers connect with the world through "smart devices", but as a non-smartphone user, I see it as more of a distraction for Nintendo than anything. Still, it's clear Nintendo needs to expand their fanbase 'cause us diehards can't float the Nintendo boat on our own.



TruenoGT commented on Nintendo Discusses Plans for amiibo Cards, Fra...:

I'm OK with this as long as it isn't too inconvenient. The e-reader was fun, but needing to scan card after card to load a game or level (every time you wanted to experience it) was a pain. If Amiibos become basically DLC in a less convenient, more expensive package, I'm not particularly interested. For example, if I need to NFC the appropriate Amiibo every time I want to wear a particular outfit in MK8, that's going to be lame after the first one or two times.



TruenoGT commented on Region-Locking May Be a Thing of the Past Soon...:

I've bought a number of import games/systems going all the way back to Final Fantasy V on the SFC, and while I understand the business side, it would be nice to have to jump through less hoops in the future. This has been the hardest generation yet, and I'd really like to buy some more recent JPN-only releases without buying extra systems.



TruenoGT commented on Review: The Legend of Dark Witch (3DS eShop):

This game is awesome, well worth the $4. It's like an anime, Gradius, Megaman mash-up. Super tight design, GREAT music too (think Castlevania meets Sonic 1). I'll also say that in a complete normal mode playthrough, I never encountered the attack button bug mentioned in the review.



TruenoGT commented on Developers Reflect on F-Zero As It Passes Ten ...:

For people who say they aren't sure much more could be done with the series, look at the transition from the original to X... no one would have expected that huge difference. If it came back, I'd love to see a similar huge evolution or change from GX. Even if it never comes back as a new game, a 3DS update to X (with 64DD track editor) or an HD update of GX for Wii U would be plenty to keep me happy.



TruenoGT commented on Review: Namco Museum (Wii U eShop / Game Boy A...:

Cool, thanks for the heads up. Like you, I have most/all of these releases in other forms anyway, but I'm a bit nostalgic as this was one my first GBA carts (with Castlevania and F-Zero). I previously picked up GBA Pac-man Collection the VC and the convenience is indeed nice, love that remix version too.



TruenoGT commented on Review: Namco Museum (Wii U eShop / Game Boy A...:

@Sean_Aaron Yeah, I never understood the lack of VCA releases outside of Japan. Just sitting there are perfect arcade ports of Cybersled, Starblade, not to mention the 80s classics. I've long been tempted to get a NTSC-J Wii just for these, but It'd be great to see them come west eventually.

More on topic, does this particular GBA release allow flipping the screen 90 degrees for more arcade accurate presentation? I'd love to try this on the gamepad. I thought it was either this one or the 50th anniversary version.



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.



TruenoGT commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards for October Have Bee...:

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.
