@babyguess

Ewww, I'm officially turned off. There's nothing worse then seeing urine clouds in super Mario bros. I want my whites to be 'white' thank you very much. Still, to have less motion blur, The superior 3D sweet spot and nipple C-stick would be pretty awesome...but eh, I'm officially torn now.

Day one buy for this trick r' treater. B-)
As happy as I am about the improved 3D sweet spot and less motion blur, not to mention the C-Nipple stick, I'm still baffled that Nintendo didn't offer a 6th brightness without the use of the AC/Charger cable.

Question is, does it get brighter when using the Charger/AC adapter like the original 3DS?

WaveWarlock commented on Video: Catch Up With Nintendo's Super Smash Br...:

I find it disappointing that Smash Bros 3DS plays nearly identical to Brawl....There's nothing new for the characters to do in terms of bumping up the skill, aside from throwing in more weapons that do different things. The 'sinking' air dodging from brawl is back, they should of made it multi direction/controllable in air and gave you that 2 second matrix-float in-air like in Melee.

The demo was great, although I didn't like the configuration of the jump buttons being X & Y....which, well, made it awkward to jump period.
I really need to hit up a Brawl Tourny in Vancouver one of these days!

WaveWarlock commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

Missed opportunity? More like a potential convoluted mess. I'm surprised at how many people love the GCN controller, sure it's great for certain games, but it's tiny stiff d-pad makes it HORRIBLE for retro gaming & side scrollers.

The Wii U already has the Wii U pro controller, Wii U Game Pad, Wii Classic controller support, and Wii Remote & Nunchuck support. It doesn't need the gamecube controller unless Nintendo started to release GCN via the virtual console. ;)

WaveWarlock commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

I won't be getting the 3DS version until later on, this is an underwhelming version to get into after the last 'console' release since this feels like a Brawl .5. I'm not starting out my next smash bros adventure on a 'handheld' that's graphically comparable to the Wii with superior shading/lighting effects. :P This will be an 'after' appetizer to this christmas GRAND meal. ;)

Does anybody know if the new non-XL original 3DS's get brighter when you have the AC/charger adapter plugged in the wall? This unlocks the 6th brightness setting ont he original 3DS, and i personally can't live without it. the 5th brightness setting makes 3DS games look lifeless. XL can't go beyond this.

WaveWarlock commented on Review: Gargoyle's Quest II: The Demon Darknes...:

Oh snap! This will be a great match for this upcoming howling Halloween. Yet i don't think i can handle playing Wii U 'VC' games on my HDTV.... it already dishes out 27ms of lag, but emulations such as GQII have at least 1 frame/16ms of extra lag which ultimately comes to about 43ms which SUCKS.

Bummer! might just have to hook my Wii U up to my CRT instead for VC gaming to get only 16ms of lag. What a double dragon DRAG!

WaveWarlock commented on New Mighty No. 9 Trailer Builds The Hype as Ke...:

@Philip_J_Reed
It was Mega Man 9 for me.
Scratch that, my excitement for Mighty N.9 has dropped nearly 75% ;)

This looks like a lost & found PS2 game. :P The visuals look very mechanical and lifeless. Mega Man 7 & 8 on the otherhand actually feel Alive. I just don't really care for this game anymore to be honest.

WaveWarlock commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

The skeptics said it wasn't possible, but NIntendo proved them Wrong in regards to widening the sweet spot significantly! :P Plus the top screen has less blur to boot. :D

I will be getting one of the original 3DS sized versions of this. wasn't a fan of the XL.

WaveWarlock commented on Xenoblade's Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Br...:

@RaphaBoss
What are you talking about? When did i mention that these characters were from anime? I said they have an 'anime' inspired flavor/look to them.... facepalm Insert Fire Emblem and Xenoblades. Then again, it seems like they toned Shulk down from his original japense-y look and Nintendoized him to fit better with the Nintendo roster. Still, the originality with all of these swordsmen art direction/character design wise are a little on the generic side.

Take my Money!!! :D
Torn between the Aimgo 'white' or black original 3DS.
The improved 3D viewing angles and reduction in motion blur are a huge deal to me. It's a shame though that Nintendo didn't bother including a 6th brightness setting which is only available to the original 3DS models if you plug in your Adapter cable. :P

WaveWarlock commented on Xenoblade's Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Br...:

Too many Swords men and too much anime flavor. I mean honestly, this 3rd party slot could of actually been SIMON BELMONT, Bill Rizer(Contra) or Arthur(Ghosts 'n Goblins), characters that have actually been there from the beginning, that are far more worthy, Nintendo-y and recognizable. WTF. Sakurai just seems to be satisfying his own needs

This does nothing for me, but i cannot WAIT to see the duckhut video unveiling! :o

WaveWarlock commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

Video games for the most part have been dubbed down these days, for the Casual movie goer in mind.

Nintendo still needs to embrace motio controls and put them to good use like they did with metroid Prime, Wario Land Shake it!, Zelda Skyward Sword(just to name a few) and of course embrace traditional controlled goodness.

Just ease down on trying to please these I-phone transitioning tweens and soccermoms and turn back to the NintenZoids that have been here from the very start.

WaveWarlock commented on Rumour: Unconfirmed Smash Bros. Footage Suppos...:

Knocking out Lucus, Wolf and Snake makes sense. However, there's still no confirmation for the Ice Climbers. They are the only Brawl-newcomer that hasn't made it in yet. I personally don't care, but i'm sure there are quite a number of people who like to play as them.

WaveWarlock commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

@Daisaku36

Because Infamous and Uncharted were never on a Nintendo System to begin with....

Resident Evil: 'revelations' originally debuted on the 'nintendo' 3DS. Lets not forget.....Resident Evil 4, RE2(N64), Remake, Zero, RE4: Wii Edition, RE: Umbrella Chronicles, RE: Darkside Chronicles, RE: Gaiden(GB), RE DS, the playstation ports and RE: Revelations: U Edition.

Yup, it's fair to say that capcom has released plenty of resident evil games on Nintendo platforms, which gives Thomas every reason to whine, moan and complain. :P

We're not even getting Remake HD for crying out loud. I'd imagine that could also be done on the Wii U, what, with the updated character models(ect)

@Lo3edia
I'm with ya dude. Once you experience pointer controls for aiming(be it the first or 3rd person genre ect ect) you CANNOT go back to a clunky, robotic, stiff, unimmersive and unintuitive thumb stick, at least i can't. If by some miracle the Wii U gets Revelations 2 it will be highly unlikely that it will get pointer support. Capcom is a failure these days at seeing the potential of motion controls.

I'm passing on Revelations for the Wii U since there's no pointer support. I already finished it on the 3DS a year prior to that anyways.

WaveWarlock commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Assets Spotted:

Revelations was a total mixed bag, but...The more Resident Evil, the butter! i mean better. :* It's funny though, Capcom always talks about rebooting the franchise but they just can't seem to do it. :P

Also, if it's not coming to the Wii U, then no it's no dice for this little Mullet 'n mega'd Puppeteer. The direction as of late for RE as a whole, in regards to 5, Revelations and 6 has been sour. Normally i'd be really excited, i mean c'mon...It's a NEW resident evil game. But the fact that i couldn't even bare to play more than 30 minutes of RE6 shows that my lust for the series that was once obsessive has been decaying like a wet zombie sandwich.

I want survival horror, take the series back to it's roots. Enough with this mindless puzzle lacking, ammo riddled action packed interactive movie gun blasting bogus bananza.

WaveWarlock commented on The Sega Genesis is Now 25 Years Old:

25 years old and still in the shadow of the SNES.
Genesis still had the greatest ghostbusters game period. ;)

I got the genny a few months after it's release, and i deeply regret it. Because it took another year for me to get my own SNES, which was far and away more magical than the pile of genesis games i went toe to toe with.

Greatest genny memories must of been Rocket Knight Adventures, Streets of Rage, Splatterhouse 2, Toe Jam & Earl, Ghostbusters and few or so other, but none of them can compare to nintendo, capcom and konami's heavy hitters on the SNES imo.

@ogo79
There still hasn't been a new 3DS design that has topped the regular 'Aqua Blue' imo, that thing looks like it popped out of a shimmering mystical ocean summoned by none other than Ariel the little mermaid.

The 80's-ish sparkly cake layered aqua blue design is too pretty for words. When i got my 3DS XL blue, i was like....WTF is this plastic hot mess of boring clam cowabunga sauce. It looks like it belongs in the DSi family.
