TrueWiiMaster commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:

I'm not surprised Nintendo would go with Sony for a Mario movie. They're probably the biggest movie company in Japan, after all. I am a bit skeptical about the movie itself, though. I just can't see Mario translating well to the big screen. As many critics have pointed out over the years, Mario games don't really have stories. That's fine for games, where gameplay is most important, but a good story is integral to a movie, even a movie meant for kids. I'll probably end up seeing the movie whether it's good or not, though.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U St...:

Next year will be legendary. Mario, Zelda, Kirby, Star Fox, Yoshi, Xenoblade, Devil's Third, and Splatoon all in one year (and I'd be surprised if there weren't some surprises too), and right on the heels of Super Smash Bros. And that's just the Wii U, with Monster Hunter, Majora's Mask, and Codename STEAM coming to the 3DS (and again, I expect some surprises). 2015's going to be expensive.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

If this is true, Nintendo certainly didn't waste any time. I mean, Amiibo figures haven't even been out for 3 weeks yet.

Anyway, the collector in me is annoyed that I'll probably never be able to collect every figure at a reasonable price. I'm glad I at least got the Villager.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

That would be disappointing, but honestly, I'd prefer a new Fire Emblem for the Wii U over a Fire Emblem crossover. SMT4 was good (I still haven't finished it thanks to its maze-like design), but Fire Emblem Awakening was awesome.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

If you format the system, Nintendo can restore your eshop account, but what would happen to your Wii Shop account? Can they even bring that back?

I think I might abstain from playing, online or offline, until Nintendo releases another update. As awesome as the game is, it's not worth risking both accounts and the Wii U itself. Good thing I have Omega Ruby to keep me busy.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Early December Update Will Fix Pokémon Omega ...:

Unfortunately, my copy still hasn't arrived. I bought it with SSB from Toys R Us, which I bought there for the free Amiibo. I have the Amiibo, but both games are still hundreds of miles away. On the bright side, maybe this bug will be fixed by the time I get my copy.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Review: Thomas Was Alone (Wii U eShop):

It's a great game, but I'm not going to spend $11 on it. Even if I didn't already own it on PC and PS3, that's just too high a price for an old game, especially one that's been on sale for a buck more than once (which is how I got it on PC and PS3). I'm glad they brought it to the Wii U, but I think it should have been $5-6 instead of $11.



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

So basically, one guy ignored every fact out there and pushed the Vita, and the other guy said Sony's trying to get the casual market the Wii had, the same market many Playstation fans hated... What were these guys trying to accomplish?



TrueWiiMaster commented on Cubic Ninja Sales Spike Following Announcement...:

Hopefully Nintendo figures out how it's going to work, and puts out an update on the 21st, required to play Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire, that closes whatever hole it uses, leaving tons of people with a useless copy of Cubic Ninja. Even if the hack's creator doesn't plan on using it for piracy of 3DS games, other people will, and even if they didn't, it still allows for piracy of other games, including those available on the eshop.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

The Villager's coming free with my pre-order from Toys R Us, and I probably won't get any others anytime soon, so I guess he'll be my "main" Amiibo. I got lucky, actually, because the Villager Amiibo was sold out at Toys R Us, and they just restocked him. The others look cool, so I'll probably get at least a couple more at some point, just not this year.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Teaser Tweet Suggests Binding of Isaac on the 3DS:

"since all I know is that they don't want it taught in US schools (sorry, Italian here...) since it's scientifically wrong."
That's where Intelligent Design comes in. Creationism shouldn't be taught in schools because it's religious. Intelligent Design is fairly all-encompassing, and can even include evolution. The reason atheists don't want ID in schools is that it allows for the possibility of religion.

As for angry atheists, it's not hard to find them online. They obviously don't represent every atheist out there, but they're the loudest. It's not unusual for them to make statements like "Creationists should be shot" or "Creationists shouldn't be allowed to have kids".

When did anyone mention "white heterosexual christians"? People were talking about Jews, one of the more persecuted races on Earth, and Christians, which can be any race or gender. What's more, Christians are being persecuted in the Middle East right now, where their lives actually are in danger.

And how is your life in danger every day? Your account says you live in the US, which isn't really known for killing homosexuals.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Teaser Tweet Suggests Binding of Isaac on the 3DS:

As Yorumi just said, Nintendo never approved of the games. They were released without any permission from Nintendo. They even have different cartridges (black with a weird ridge on the end) because they couldn't use real NES cartridges. I think the game you were referring to is Bible Adventures.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Teaser Tweet Suggests Binding of Isaac on the 3DS:

What was I supposed to get from that link?

Arguing about the religious status of atheism/agnosticism is getting very off topic, so I'll try not to touch it. I will say, though, that one could argue that it was the lack of faith that allowed the Russian dictators to rule as they did. I mean, before Stalin, was there ever an atheist (he was an atheist, not an agnostic) with so much power? And has any leader had as high a death count under his leadership as Stalin? My point is, even if an atheistic leader didn't specifically declare that he was killing in the name of atheism, that doesn't mean atheism had nothing to do with the killing. The number of people who died under Stalin is at least several times the number of people killed in the name of Christianity.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Teaser Tweet Suggests Binding of Isaac on the 3DS:

I haven't played it, nor do I intend to, but I have looked into it. It takes the story of Isaac and Abraham, the father of the Jewish race, and warps it, using it as the premise for a game even fans often say is disgusting.

As for religion being connected to every war, you might be right to some degree, but being connected and being the cause are not the same thing. Religion didn't cause WWII, the worst war in history, for example.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Teaser Tweet Suggests Binding of Isaac on the 3DS:

Hopefully Nintendo is still blocking it. I'd prefer not to see hateful and/or racist content on the eshop.

People say that all the time, but the number of people killed in the name of Christianity is actually pretty low, especially when compared to the number of people killed in non-religious wars, or under non-Christian leaders.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Review: Costume Quest 2 (Wii U eShop):

I was excited for this game, but decided to hold off on it because of its late release. I'm kinda glad I did, too. This game should not have any trouble running on the Wii U. The fact that it suffers from frame rate problems makes me think it was a lazy port. Hopefully they release a patch to fix the problem soon. Either way, I'll probably be getting it next October.



TrueWiiMaster commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

I tend to agree with him. Nintendo, especially with the Wii U, has the most and the best exclusives. Whether you get an Xbox One or a PS4, it doesn't make much difference. They share a lot of the same features, and almost all of their biggest games are shared. There's just not much difference between them. The Wii U, on the other hand, stands out as the only truly unique system this gen. It has the Gamepad and Miiverse, of course, but it's also the only new system to have backwards compatibility and free online play. In the end, if you want the most/best exclusives, go with the Wii U, and if you want the most multiplats go with either the PS4 or Xbox One. If you want the best multiplats, go with PC.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Super Smash Bros. 3-Poster Set Now Available f...:

Man, the rewards are so expensive nowadays. I just "bought" Kirby's Dream Course, leaving me with just enough to get this poster set. I've gotten almost every poster set on Club Nintendo (I skipped the Animal Crossing posters; they were expensive, they only came with two posters, and I thought they were kind of ugly). Hopefully they don't start putting up CD's as soon as I'm out of coins.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication P...:

You could argue that, but it's hard to say something's censored when it's almost universally available, as BoI is. Whether the game's on the Wii U/3DS or not, the vast majority of people have access to it. It's not censorship when you can easily get it, but not on your device of choice.

I'm not going to pretend to know what's best for other people. As I said, I prefer a friendly eshop, and want it to remain free of hateful content. That's not me telling others what to play. It's just me wanting a friendly eshop. I don't care what you play.

"I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to my death your right to say it"
I agree. That's why I said I wouldn't be interested in banning material like BoI. People should have the right to expression, even if it's insulting or hateful. That right doesn't include the right to be in private stores like the eshop, though.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication P...:

Not quite. I specifically said that the game is available to pretty much everyone with a computer, and I'm okay with that. Like most hateful material, I would personally prefer if it didn't exist (at least not as it is) but I would never try to ban it. That would be censorship. Wanting to keep a specific store from carrying insulting, hateful, and/or generally offensive material is not censorship.

Also, this isn't just because I'm personally offended by the game. I would be against any hateful game coming to the eshop, even if it had nothing to do with my beliefs. I'd prefer to keep the eshop a fairly friendly place.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication P...:

I'm not against discussion, but there's a difference between discussion and insult. Discussion should be respectful.

I'm against censorship, but keeping this game off the eshop wouldn't be censorship. The game would still be available to pretty much anyone with a PC less than 10 years old, after all.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Outlines Generous eShop Publication P...:

"do you hope to see more titles like Binding of Isaac come to Nintendo systems?"
Not at all. I love indie games, but I don't want to see the eshop littered with insulting, even racist, games. I still agree with their policy of rejecting games with religious content. It's simply too touchy a subject.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo of Europe Distributes Free Halloween ...:

Nintendo should do this kind of thing more often. Back in the day they gave out free stuff to members all the time. I remember getting a DK64 T-shirt and an N64 controller cover (also DK64 themed) just for being in the N64 Crew. Now that they can give out digital rewards like themes and demos, they should do that kind of stuff again.

On another note, I hope America gets similar treatment. I'd love a Halloween themed background, even if only for a week.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Details on New Mega Evolutions and Soar Abilit...:

I still have the eon ticket I got with the original games, for use with the e-reader. I can't wait to go back to Hoenn. Ruby was one of my favorite Pokemon games, and probably my favorite GBA game.

As UltraLaserTen said, the codes for the demo will apparently be distributed from the Pokemon website to subscribers who opt in for emails. The site recommends subscribing before October 20.

Edit: That's how to get the demo in America. I'm not sure if it applies to other regions.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo 64x64: Paper Mario:

I played it for the first time thanks to the Wii's VC, and since then I've enjoyed every Paper Mario after it (yes, I loved Sticker Star). I wish Nintendo would add it to the Wii U's VC, if just to give me a reason to play it again.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Thomas Was Alone to Make Friends With Wii U in...:

I have this on PC and PS3, but I'd prefer to play it on the Wii U. For $10, though, I definitely won't be getting this any time soon. Thomas Was Alone is already over 2 years old, and has been sold for $1 multiple times. The Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One versions of this game should cost no more than $5.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Limited GameCube Controller Edition of Super S...:

I definitely plan on getting the bundle. I loved the Gamecube controller, and even if I don't use it much in the new SSB, it'll be great to have another one. My real hope, though, is that the adapter is the first step in bringing Gamecube games to the Wii U VC. If there's even a slight chance of that happening, I want to be ready.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Confirms Development of Games That Wi...:

Sounds good. I won't be upgrading until they make it worth my while, though. I have little interest in replaying Xenoblade with 400x240, even with added 3D.

I understand why some people are mad, but I think their frustration is misplaced. The 3DS is at an age where its successor could be announced next week. The fact that it's getting an upgrade means it will probably be around for at least a couple more years (I think they'll replace it and the Wii U at similar times in around 3 years). As of right now, Nintendo's not abandoning the current 3DS either, despite what some people might say. All we know right now is that one Wii port is exclusive to the new 3DS. There will be future exclusives, of course, as well as games with enhanced features, but right now we have no reason to think the current 3DS will be dropped, especially for big releases.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Region Locks Consoles To Get More Har...:

I hate region locking, but the idea that Nintendo added it to the 3DS simply to move more systems doesn't make much sense. I mean, how many people actually buy 3DS's from multiple regions? They usually cost extra to import, and they can have a language barrier. On top of that, all games for that system will have to be imported, or bought on the eshop, often at extra cost. I doubt there's much sales potential there. If Nintendo wanted to sell more systems, they'd be better off making more special editions.

Besides, while Nintendo's a hardware company, they make most of their money from games. They were even taking losses on the 3DS for a while, which means the more 3DS's someone bought the more it cost Nintendo. Their top goal is to get systems to as many people as possible, so that as many people as possible can buy their games. Having a handful of people buy multiple systems doesn't really help them with that goal.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Hyperkin's RetroN 5 Console Allegedly Infringe...:

While I understand that emulation in and of itself isn't piracy, it is generally necessary for piracy to occur, and its primary use is typically piracy. For this reason, it's ironic that the same people who created the tools for thousands, perhaps millions, of people to steal games are now complaining that those tools were stolen, especially since the people who stole them are using them to let people play games legitimately.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Thomas Was Alone Will Look For Company on Wii U:

I have it on PC from one of the Humble Bundles, but I prefer console gaming, and I have it on PS3 from a flash sale, but I don't have a PS3 yet. If this comes to the Wii U at a good price, I might just get it again. From what I've played on PC, it's an excellent game.

Did Curve ever say anything about bringing Stealth Inc. 1 to the eshop? It's on sale for the PS3 right now, but if it's coming to the Wii U at some point, I'd rather wait.



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Download: 11th September (North America):

1st party games have been scarce, but there have been a lot of great 3rd party/indie games in the last 18 weeks, including Shovel Knight, Guacamelee, Child of Light, Stick it to the Man, Scram Kitty, and Ittle Dew. Counting those and the many others, not to mention the various 3rd party VC releases, I doubt this has been "the biggest software drought in Nintendo's 30 year history in the video game industry".



TrueWiiMaster commented on Nintendo Launches a Free 3DS Game Promotion in...:

I hope NOA does a similar promotion. I've been holding off on registering my 3DS XL and Wii U to take advantage these "free game" offers. I managed to get Layton free in a previous deal, and if these games are offered in America, I'll be getting Link Between Worlds (I might need to get a new SD card though; my 16GB is finally getting full).



TrueWiiMaster commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:

I think there's room for games like Spikey Walls on the eshop, but I think they should have their own section, maybe labelled "budget titles" or "casual games".

That said, I have no intention of buying the game. I'd rather support unique/full-fledged games than an imitation of a casual app.
