I actually think it's better to play SSB on the 2DS, because;
1. You don't need the 3D effect to enjoy this game
2. The d-pad is better (quicker and more accurate) for fighting games.
3. The d-pad is much better positioned on the 2DS than on the 3DS.

You have a 2DS! Good for you :)

With a huge install base that is already out there? Nonsense. It's not like everybody that is going to buy SSB, also is going to buy a new 3DS especially for it, just because it's more durable. Also, Nintendo designing hardware that they know that is not going to last? They are not that evil nor that stupid!



Vriess commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:

I don't understand how people can play fighting games with an analog stick or circle pad anyway. It isn't accurate at all, and too slow.
And what about the hinges? With such frantic gameplay, I think that those will get a hard time too.



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


I understand your argument, but the complaint about too little VC titles is a long standing one. Nintendo has surely heard it, yet ignores it or fails to comment about it. It's a source of frustration for us retro gamers that has been building for years many years now. When the Wii came out in 2006 we were treated to multiple great VC titles a month. Over the years there was a decline in released titles, and now we can't even play most of the VC titles that were released for the Wii on the Wii U!! We have to make due with about 10 bad, or mediocre VC titles for each good one, and maybe only once every couple of months. The retro gamers want to buy the games but there aren't hardly any. And then there are people who frown upon people who use emulators and roms...really... The 25 yo + gamers want to buy play the games that they grew up with! Nintendo owes us that much!

Mow the lawn, wash the dishes for a week, paint the house, fix the kitchen sink, wine + dine, buy her a nice dress (know her size and don't screw up!!), foot rubs, keep the kids calm, try to be nice to her mom, really listen to her when she asks you to...want me to go on? It will work though ;)



Vriess commented on Activision Is Bringing The Dulcet Tones Of The...:

Yes...sure... By all means Activision! Bring shovelware to the Wii U! And then, when it doesn't sell at all, complain that the Wii U isn't a viable platform to produce for. Nintendo should fend off shovelware.



Vriess commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

The argument against downloading ROMs would be a quite a bit stronger if Nintendo released a lot more VC games, but since they don't... I would prefer to buy Bayou Billy and Solar Jetman, Goonies 2, Kung Fu, Gremlins 2 etc. on the Wii U, but since I can't ...

I want to want to this game because I love the Zelda series, but I just can't get excited about it. It's just not my genre. I would be bored to death within 5 minutes. I am glad for the people who do want this game though. It is good to see something new being done with a big Nintendo franchise.



Vriess commented on Sega Still Considering Its Options For The Wii...:

They're going from "no way in hell" to "if there is a hell, then there may be a way". Not much difference to me...

Sega and other older publishers should have their butts kicked for not releasing more VC games!! How many resources would it take to port an old game to the Wii U? Ok, I think that most VC games don't generate that much revenue, but I am sure that the costs of porting them over can be covered and that companies should see it as fan service and a form of marketing. The old games need to be kept fresh for us old school gamers AND for the younger generations. My kids love the NES, SNES and Mega Drive games, but that's thanks to me and not thanks to Sega...



Vriess commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Twilight Princess! The gameplay, mood, graphics, music, length...all great! Story wise...there are a lot of loop holes, but the rest of the game makes up for that. Ocarina of Time 3D is a close second.



Vriess commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (Europe):

I twittered Yachtclub Games and they say that they don't have a date for the EU version yet. I can imagine that the game needs translation into French, Spanish, Italien and German and then the game has to pass through PEGI and Nintendo validation again... Like Yachtclub Games couldn't have done that earlier...



Vriess commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS Retail Games ...:

Captain Toad - For sure! :D
Project CARS - Probably
Art Academy - If my daughter wants it.
Watch Dogs - Yes, but not for full retail price.
For the rest....meh....

Looking forward to more VC titles. Mainly NES, SNES and Mega Drive. Also want more indies.



Vriess commented on E3 2014: Quickfire Shigeru Miyamoto Video Focu...:

I don't know about Miyamoto's three gamePad projects. They look kind of fun but gimmicky as well. A year ago when everyone started to worry about the dwindling Wii U sales, I can imagine Iwata having said; "Quick, we need to show the public the importance of the Wii U gamepad and Miyamoto-san, as figure head of Nintendo, you're the only one that can do it. We need you to think up something fun and unique, and fast! We're in damage control here!"

Ok, they're "projects" and not fully developed games. But to me the games feel rushed and not nearly as engaging as other Miyamoto's games. I wonder about their pricing and lasting value. I don't see myself playing any of those game for longer than 15 minutes or half an hour. Do you guys?

I love the gamepad but I'm afraid that if Nintendo hasn't been able to convince the large public of it's use during the 17 months that the Wii U has been available, that they never will.
