WesCash commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Confirms New 'Retro' GameCub...:
So is this new GC controller going to be usable with original GCs and Wiis? I'm hoping yes. It's near impossible to find 1st party GC controllers in good condition nowadays.
WesCash commented on Review: My First Songs (Wii U eShop):
All those songs are too mainstream for me.
WesCash commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:
Nintendo really needs an E3 presence if they want to stay somewhat competitive.
WesCash commented on Nintendo Download: 17th April (North America):
I guess this is a good week for the 10 people in the world that still haven't played SMB3.
WesCash commented on Ubisoft Expects Watch_Dogs To Be One Of The Bi...:
It definitely will be, just not on the WiiU.
WesCash commented on Ubisoft and EA Lock In Their E3 Presentation D...:
The two greatest video game companies in the world have their E3 conferences on the same day? It's truly a gift from the heavens.
WesCash commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:
The strict modding on Miiverse certainly doesn't help the "kiddie" image Nintendo maintains in a lot of people's eyes.
WesCash commented on Review: Pure Chess (3DS eShop):
I agree with the review and score. It's a perfectly functional game with some nice touches. I very much like the soundtrack and chess challenges. As a single player experience, it's pretty good. The fixed isometric view on the top screen is disappointing and sometimes the bottom screen is "illuminated" in a way that makes it hard to discern white pieces on the white squares.
I haven't got around to trying out multiplayer.
WesCash commented on Super Smash Bros. Will Run At A Silky-Smooth 6...:
This was actually the best news from the entire Nintendo Direct today.
WesCash commented on Review: Nintendo Pocket Football Club (3DS eShop):
The absurd popularity of Football Manager is something I will never understand. It combines the world's most boring sport with the excitement of spreadsheets.
WesCash commented on Review: Metroid Fusion (Wii U eShop / Game Boy...:
Finally got around to beating it on my 3DS a week or so ago. It's alright, I guess. Certainly nothing amazing though.
WesCash commented on Feature: A Round-Up of the Best Nintendo-Relat...:
The Frostbite post was funny. Making fun of the WiiU never gets old.
WesCash commented on Exclusive: Nintendo Developing "Virtual U" VR ...:
Dang, I fell for it and my faith in Nintendo was momentarily renewed. Nintendo doing something new and exciting? Nope, April Fools!
WesCash commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:
@XFsWorldOr both. But they should definitely be on the 3DS.
WesCash commented on Review: Volleyball (Wii U eShop / NES):
Damn, I guess I'll have to rush out and buy a Wii U now. But should I get this or Urban Champion first?
WesCash commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:
@Alpha2797 That's a good theory and it's likely that Nintendo is indeed thinking that way. But I'm not sure how much of a selling point it really is. I think Nintendo might be overestimating that. Personally, I'd buy a new console specifically for new games. Being able to access old titles is certainly a great bonus, but it wouldn't influence my choice of console much. I mean, I can go to my local game shop and buy a GBA for $5 if I wanted to. But you are probably right in thinking that Nintendo believes this will help the WiiU.
@OorWullieReally? Hmm. I'd have to see it to believe it. It might depend on the game too. Some GBA games are fairly crisp while others look muddy and dated. I used to own a GC gameboy player and I don't remember games looking overly good on my TV. And in 2014 my TV is much larger.
WesCash commented on Feature: Bandai Namco Characters We'd Love to ...:
Soul Calibur characters please. I want to be Voldo.
@ikki5 I should have worded that differently. I mean that it makes absolutely no sense to only release these on the WiiU and completely ignore the 3DS. I fail to see the logic behind this decision.
Not to mention that GBA games will look terrible when blown up to fit on a TV or gamepad.
Come to 3DS please. GBA games on the WiiU makes no sense whatsoever.

"aimed squarely at older audiences"
Let the poor hedgehog die already. This is animal abuse, I think PETA should step in.
WesCash commented on Pure Chess DLC Will Be Available Day One, And ...:
@Squiggle55I'm wondering the same thing, I can't seem to find any information on that.
Oh well, at least it's just cosmetic stuff. Still waiting for the official Nintendolife review to decide whether or not to pick this up for 3DS.
WesCash commented on Nintendo Has "Lost Its Way" But Should Never B...:
Kind of agree with him, although he's slightly more optimistic than I am.
WesCash commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:
The game clearly objectifies women, that's not even up for debate. But as silly and tasteless as it may be, it has every right to exist. I'd say the same thing about a game with scantily clad males in it.
WesCash commented on Tyrone Rodriguez Continues to Lobby Nintendo t...:
@YorumiI'm not defending hatred, I'm defending freedom of speech. Is the game making light of religion? Definitely. Is it mocking religion? I suppose in a way it is. But it's an exaggeration to claim that there's any sort of "hatred". Games should be allowed to touch on controversial issues. Considering the unanimous critical acclaim and impressive sales that Binding of Isaac has, it's clear that people have responded positively.@Capt_NI agree that the theme/presentation can potentially be interpreted as an attack, but as the saying goes, "never judge a book by its cover". I've played over 100 hours of the game and certainly never got the impression that the game was trying to make a statement one way or the other. It's not really a game about religion, rather a game that uses it to touch on other issues.
@YorumiSpeaking of reliable sources, where's your proof that Edmund McMillen specifically created Binding of Isaac to insult and attack Christianity? That's what you keep saying. Do you have a quote or something? Because the paragraph I posted above (along with everything else I've read) suggests otherwise.
@Yorumi - You keep ignorantly saying that the game was specifically designed to insult Christians and that the creator is a vile person. It's clear you don't actually know anything about the game or creator. I'm a big fan of his work; he comes across as a very likable person with unique ideas. I suggest watching Indie Game: The Movie. Anyway, here's a link to the second page of an article Edmund McMillen wrote about the game: http://www.gamasutra.com/view/feature/182380/postmortem_mcmillen_and_himsls_.php?page=2
I think this paragraph is a good one:
"I wanted Isaac to embody this duality I experienced with religion. I wanted it to show the positive and negative effects it had on me as a child — the self-hate and isolation it instilled in me, but also the dark creativity it inspired. The Bible is a very good, creatively written book, and one of my favorite aspects of it is how so many people can find different meanings in one passage. I wanted Isaac to have this in its story as well, which is why the game's final ending(s) have many possible interpretations."
That doesn't exactly support your accusations. I'll admit, I'm not religious. But I've put over 100 hours into the game, and in no way do I feel that it is mocking Christianity. In fact, the game has overwhelmingly positive messages about God, holiness, and the bible. Heck, the bible is one of the most powerful weapons in the game.
@Frapp - There's little to get upset about with a few religious references.
I'm not sure how Nintendo justifies rejecting Binding of Isaac for having inappropriate content while a game like Senran Kagura Burst is apparently fine.
I'm super excited for Rebirth. I'll be getting it right away on PC, but it would be great to see it available on Nintendo consoles too.
WesCash commented on Pure Chess Will Checkmate Your Wii U And 3DS V...:
$7.99 on 3DS? I suppose that's reasonable, though I'll have to wait on the reviews. The video is gorgeous, but clearly it's the Wii U version and almost certainly pre-rendered.
WesCash commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:
I feel like this game has been in development for 10 years already.
WesCash commented on Guacamelee: Super Turbo Championship Edition i...:
@unrandomsamFair enough. You're right that the word "metroidvania" is overused and doesn't always describe games well. Guacamelee is a lot more of a beat-em-up than Castlevania or Metroid. I can see how you might have been disappointed if you were expecting something more like La-Mulana or Rondo of Blood.
I absolutely love the combat though. I found it to be incredibly fluid and satisfying. Button-mashing won't get you too far in the later levels, as enemies aren't just the simple skeletons that you fight early on. You really need to end up mastering the special moves and combos. And the bosses require a great amount of skill to beat. To each his own, though.
@unrandomsamOut of curiosity, what did you think was "mediocre" about it? I can't imagine anyone not liking the game, it's almost perfect. I can't think of anything to really complain about besides perhaps some difficulty spikes.
WesCash commented on It's Not Waluigi Time In The New Super Smash B...:
Boooo!Smash Bros. is totally going to bomb now.
WesCash commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:
@Beau_Skunk I'm wondering that too.
When they say "we are deactivating the Wi-fi service on the DS and Wii", does that really just mean that they are shutting down the servers for all DS and Wii games?
I would assume so, but I don't know for sure.
WesCash commented on Weirdness: Samus Aran's Metroid Backstory Re-i...:
If the next Metroid game isn't subtitled "Fight for Love", I'll be disappointed.
WesCash commented on Month Of Kong: The Making Of Diddy Kong Racing:
One of favourite N64 games. I have the DS version but It doesn't quite do the original justice. I think it might benefit from the 3DS circle pad though, I'll have to give it a try.
WesCash commented on NPD Data Shows More U.S. Gamers Switching to D...:
I'm completely digital .... on PC.
Console makers have a lot of work to do in order to make digital sales a legitimate alternative. Especially Nintendo with it's piss-poor system.
WesCash commented on Game Boy Advance Titles To Hit Wii U Virtual C...:
Gah, I want them on the 3DS. Disappointing.
WesCash commented on Feature: The Weird and Wonderful World of Nint...:
I actually hate the concave 3DS circle pad. I could totally go for a traditional analog stick.
WesCash commented on Watch_Dogs Delayed Again on Wii U, Will Arrive...:
Yikes... This game getting canned on the WiiU would be hilariously tragic.
WesCash commented on A Sonic Boom Game is Dashing Towards Wii U and...:
Oh god. This game is going to be just as terrible as any other Sonic game in recent memory. Skrillex was the final nail in the coffin for me.

WesCash commented on Team Meat's Name Originated From a "Random" Ni...:
@Kirk and @DerpSandwich basically summed up all of the thoughts I have on this issue. I don't understand why so many Nintendo "fans" feel the need to defend Nintendo at every opportunity and shift blame elsewhere. You aren't helping Nintendo by trying to excuse all of their mistakes.
I love Team Meat and can understand why they don't want to risk putting games on the WiiU or even the 3DS. Nobody to blame there but Nintendo. The PC is a far better place for indie games. Even the Xbox and PS digital stores are pretty safe choices.

If a Sonic game skips your system, you know there's no hope left.
WesCash commented on Nintendo of America Issues Refunds After Warne...:
@TreonsRealm As @Kodeen pointed out, Steam doesn't release sales numbers. PC retail copies are pretty much irrelevant. There's no chance whatsoever that the WiiU version outsold the PC version.
