TruenoGT commented on Review: Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash (3DS):

Still optimistic and glad I'm getting it. I really enjoyed Photo Finder and that was dubbed mediocre or worse by many. Even b-tier Nintendo platformers (e.g. Super Princess Peach) are well worth playing and I'm sure this is no different.



TruenoGT commented on Midora Developer Admits He Knew Kickstarter Fu...:

Seems like the indie bubble is bursting due to both oversaturation and recently failed or controversial Kickstarter campaigns which have made gamers (myself included) more wary of backing them. Furthermore, there's more game and system choice than ever before so I can't imagine the trials it takes to produce, let alone profit from, a game these days. Hope this guy can work it out, but it looks like a major uphill climb.



TruenoGT commented on Nielsen Game Rank Lists the Most Anticipated G...:

Face it everybody, as games become more mainstream, it will be more and more that the best games are not the most popular and well known, just the ones with the biggest marketing budgets. It's the same way with movies, music, etc.



TruenoGT commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015 - Q4 ...:

FAST, Xenoblade, Fatal Frame 5 in that order. Plus dozens and dozens of Mario Maker hours, Yokai Watch, Zelda Triforce Heroes on 3DS (and an endless backlog), I'll have no problems getting some high quality gaming going this fall.



TruenoGT commented on Whisper It - You Can Still Download Rewards Fr...:

Hope for news of the replacement soon. I was a CN diehard from the start and always looked forward to new rewards and games as they got refreshed each month. Since it's been discontinued in the US, I've missed the fun of filling out surveys and seeing new goodies pop up now and again.



TruenoGT commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Could Possibly be the La...:

People should give Zip Lash a chance! Looks super fun and Nintendo rarely makes a poor platforming game. I've got it pre-ordered to secure an amiibo, so I'm definitely on board. Great series, even Photo Finder which I've found works a lot better on New 3DS with the better cameras.



TruenoGT commented on Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash Will Be Served Up in...:

I think it's getting harder to justify these Nintendo sports titles as full retail releases, especially since the last few seem pretty bare bones. I'm surprised they don't simplify it even more and just make this (and Mario Golf, Baseball, etc) like a $15-20 eShop release. Then make a retail bundle later on like with the NES Remix 1+2, Wii Sports Club, etc.



TruenoGT commented on Konami Denies That It Is Walking Away From AAA...:

@Totaldude911 Yeah, exactly. Get the shamed, slave labor out for new Konami games. All the talent is gone and just like with Sega, classic IPs won't automatically make classic games. I'm sure we'll get some Castlevanias, Metal Gears, etc, but they'll be shells of their former selves, just like Sonic.



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

@Peach64 I see your point regarding FF's legacy, however I'm not so sure on the sales side regarding Starfox vs Xenoblade, considering the historical numbers. The last console Starfox (Assault) sold similarly to Xenoblade in numbers (each around 1m globally, NOT including the 3DS version), despite the fact that Xenoblade was released so late in Wii's cycle and in such a limited way in the US. With all the critical acclaim that Xenoblade received post-release and Starfox series' relative dormancy (and internet negativity of Zero following E3), I think that Xenoblade CX could really have been the bigger hit sales-wise had they both come out this fall and received similar marketing support. Plus some of the bigger brands like Yoshi's Wooly World landed with kind of a thud in Japan (to be fair, so did XCX), so a historically popular Nintendo franchise isn't necessarily going to be a bigger hit.

All of that said, this console cycle has been so crazy, it's hard to know what's going to happen! I'm just glad we're getting some pretty awesome games on a console that many consider to be on life support at best.



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

Echoing all the Xenoblade comments. Starfox is a niche franchise now, while Xenoblade Wii was one of the biggest and best games last generation. If something like FF15 can be considered a major "AAA" (god I hate that term) game, then what looks to be the superior game surely can be too. That said, I don't fall into the "Starfox Zero looks lackluster" camp, I think it looks amazing and can't wait to play it when they're done.



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: Sweeping Internal Changes Show ...:

@Toadsfriend No way, next to 3DS, it's my favorite system by far. Wii U has so many great games (especially if you include the Wii and VC libraries) and the system is great fun to use. The emphasis on player creativity via MiiVerse and games like Mario Maker, Splatoon, etc is amazing and it's really disappointing to see a system with so much good going for it not be more successful. The Wii U tried to be something more interesting than the status quo, and I guess most people just want more of the same.



TruenoGT commented on Apple Just Announced Its Own Wii, Almost A Dec...:

It was hilarious watching their stream as they announced copied product after copied product while shouting "innovation!". Apple haven't done anything interesting since iPhone, and I doubt they will again with their current echo chamber leadership and design teams.



TruenoGT commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

They are all absolutely brilliant, but I voted for the original SMB, a timeless classic which never gets old for me. The grander, newer ones are complex to the point where they lose accessibility (more moves, more narrative, etc) and are hard to jump back into repeatedly. The exception I'd say is Super Mario 3D Land which is a close second for me.



TruenoGT commented on Review: Gotcha Racing (3DS eShop):

Ever since seeing a trailer for this, I've been very excited and I'm glad it turned out well... definitely picking it up! Reminds me of an advanced "Rally King" from Retro Game Challenge/Game Center CX.



TruenoGT commented on The Smaller New Nintendo 3DS Model is Coming t...:

I'm happy for people who really wanted this one! I initially wanted it as well because the colors and plates are so darn cool, but I prefer the XL size all around. If I eventually get a JPN unit, I'll probably get a small one that way. Now if they bring the XL Happy Home Designer custom over, I might bite on that one.



TruenoGT commented on FAST Racing NEO Developer Shin’en Multimedia...:

If I had two Wii Us, I'd buy it twice. Nintendo REALLY needs to help promote this game (should have been on their recent calendar/infographic) as it's one the only 3rd party games worth talking about on Wii U and it genuinely looks great. This is a real opportunity to capitalize on the eagerness of the futuristic/arcade racing scene since developers have largely abandoned it and its audiences for years (F-Zero, Wipeout, Ridge Racer, etc).



TruenoGT commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

Just because something is difficult to get doesn't entitle one to get it for free IMO. If someone is so OCD that they need to have every box checked in a video game to the point where they need to cheat or steal, they've got bigger problems than not getting ahold of a rare Amiibo.



TruenoGT commented on VS. Excitebike is On The Way Soon:

I was just thinking how Nintendo should get the VS. games on the VC. I'd love to see VS. SMB and VS. Wrecking Crew. I've always wanted to play Wrecking Crew 2-player and the Wii U would be perfect for the 2 screen gameplay.



TruenoGT commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

One of the reason's I'm digital only on Wii U is that I suspected this might be the last disc based system and was hoping this would increase my odds of being able to transfer games to the next one.... It's a long shot, but I don't think it's so crazy now.



TruenoGT commented on Exclusive: MercurySteam Has Been Working On A ...:

I'm one of the weirdos who thought Mirror of Fate was awesome (for the record I'm also a big CV and Metroid fan), so this would be pretty interesting. Whether you liked the gameplay of MoF or not, it's hard to deny the atmosphere was pretty incredible.



TruenoGT commented on Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Acknowledges Nintendo a...:

Being a Windows PC & Wii U owner, I don't have much interest in PS4 or XB1 since I get superior versions of almost all their games, but as a platform, I think the XB1 is more interesting than PS4. I look forward to seeing where things go with XB1/Windows 10 integration and maybe I'll consider one if Phil and Co. keep going in the direction they're headed.
