UnseatingKDawg commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

While I do feel that GBA games would make more sense on 3DS (and I'm still holding out some small shred of hope that they'll give us Restore Points and Miiverse on the Ambassador games), I'm perfectly content with buying GBA games on my Wii U. One of the reasons being the Game Boy Player. When my friend showed me that on his GameCube, I thought it was pretty dang awesome to play my GBA games on a TV. Another reason being that since I can't upgrade all of my imported Wii VC games (about 30 of them, and I don't think I even have half of them upgraded), I can at least flesh out my library with games that are either new to me or that I fondly remember playing. So, come Thursday, I will happily download Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and enjoy it. And even though I have Yoshi's Island on my 3DS because of the Ambassador Program, I might even use my extra eShop money and download it on my Wii U so I can play it on my TV as well.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

I would say that the GamePad has made a bigger impact on me than the Wii Remote. Never before could I just up and play any of my console games - and now I can play nearly every Wii and Wii U game at any given time. Plus, the controller is comfortable to hold. The only major downside I saw with it was its original battery life. I've never regretted my Wii U purchase - this is the best console I've played on, period.

I really don't see how this game is "watered down". It has far less Checkpoint Rings than the previous two titles (I've taken notice that they don't really put them in front of the Boss Doors anymore), so that makes no-damage runs much more of a factor than before. That and it seems that items are hidden quite well this time around. I'd say the only disappointments I've had so far are the multiplayer games and the first boss.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I'll just wait and see how this turns out next week when it arrives in the mail.

I get the gist of this - the original, a masterpiece. The DS sequel, essentially platform hell. This one, trying to be easier due to the DS sequel being platform hell.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Nintendo Download: 13th March (North America):

Well... I was hoping for Super Mario Bros. 3, but it's nice that I can upgrade one more of my games I imported from my Wii. And I've been looking forward to Galaga on my 3DS for some time now. So I guess I will actually be picking up an eShop card after work today.



UnseatingKDawg commented on Electronic Arts CEO Discusses The Company's Pl...:

"When we think about making games today, we think less about the technology or the means of experiencing the game, and we think more about the modality of play. So, how are you trying to interact with that game?"

If you guys aren't thinking or worrying as much about the technology these days, then why are you going cold-turkey on Nintendo? Typical EA to not make friggin' sense.

In any case, I can see them butchering this up. Somehow they will, either with DLC, game-finishing DLC, or microtransactions.

Opinions are like buttholes - everybody has one.

Personally, I love the Game Pad. The resolution is fine - sure, it's not nearly as crisp as a 42 inch HDTV, but it's still great. I can play almost any Wii U or Wii game I want with it, whether it's the main controller or a monitor. It's comfortable to hold, it can be used as a TV remote when needed, there's no lag when both the Game Pad and TV are in use - the only downside is it's battery life, really. It's impressed me a lot more than when I used my friend's Kinect.

Pac-Man Collection? I haven't played that in YEARS! I hope that comes to North America. But then, considering their current track record, I wouldn't doubt that we'd have to wait. Heck, I bet we probably aren't even getting the three GBA VC games in April - they'll probably push them back for no apparent reason too.
