@WanderingPB

I'm not a big fan of the XL anyway. As soon as I saw those Dark Green plates I was sold. The Dark Green DSi came out mere months before the 3DS. Now I can just customize at will! And I never got to play XENOBLADE on Wii, so it looks like I did good buying LAST STORY instead at the time. I'm genuinely surprised at how excited I am for this.

I watched the new Direct after hearing about this and I'm sold. I have a launch 3DS and am ready for an upgrade. It's been almost 5 years and with the c-stick, NFC, imroved CPU/WiFi, better screens, in-browser videos, and customizable face/back plates the value in this upgrade seems incredibly justified. Some people spend over $300 to upgrade their phone; I'll gladly spend $160 to upgrade my 3DS. :-)

I've been wanting something like this since TWILIGHT PRINCESS. The item crafting in SKYWARD SWORD was a step in the right direction. I guess now the horsepower is enough to accommodate Enouma-san's vision. Nintendo does not do something if they can't do it perfectly.

After hearing that they spent 6 years trying to create a meaningful concept for Wii, I am sure that the final result will be amazingly entertaining. The cockpit via gamepad view sounds brilliant as does the 2 player. I said Nintendo needed to announce either ZELDA/METROID and STAR FOX/F-ZERO at E3 this year. At least one of each set. Mission Cleared.

This looks awesome. I think it will be an eShop release, maybe even a freebie for a limited time. Imagine everyone being able to upload their own custom made versions of SMB for everyone to download and play. It would be wonderfully brilliant.

Now just announce ZELDA U, METROID U, STAR FOX U, and F-ZERO for 3DS and Christmas will be yours, Nintendo. Imagine if STAR FOX was going to be a Holiday 2014 release alongside BAYONETTA 2, 'X,' and YOSHI'S YARN. And SMASH BROS. needs to hit on or right after Christmas. That is how you get the hardcore gamers back.

I still play it every Halloween on my 360. Still making my way through the expansion; GRUBBINS ON ICE. That series has some of the best writing and detail for nostalgia's sake unlike any other game I've played. It just puts a smile on mine and my children's faces.

Just found out that my girlfriend has been planning on getting me this for the last year. My 33rd birthday is June 19th, but at $140 I don't know if she'll be able to swing it. I guess we'll see. My classic systems (even my GCN) look pretty crappy on my 50" tv.

WhiteTrashGuy commented on Planet Virtual Boy Founder Explains His Passio...:

It really was such an oddity. I remember my friend Larry getting one at launch. RED ALARM tickled my fancy quite a bit. A few years ago we had a retro game weekend at my friend Gavin's. He set up a VB station complete with 2 VB'S taped to a table and 6 games. Some of our friends had never even heard of the VB. It was a treat seeing their reactions to it. Most of them thought it was pretty amazing. Especially their girlfriends.

This game does look like a lot of fun. Just imagine being able to take part in Hyrule's history and experience wars only mentioned in manuals and cutscenes. All I gotta say is that Impa, Gannon/Gannondorf, and some Gorons better be playable characters.

WhiteTrashGuy commented on The Amazing Spider-Man 2:

@Curlynob Yes. I'll probably get ASM2 for my birthday and then just buy MK8 outright. Especially now that The Big N is giving away a free retail-download with it. (Only 4 choices for us yankees, though.) : )

So the internet just exploded with rumors that Nintendo will be showing off new hardware at E3... If they do indeed show a VR/Motion Tracking headset OR their new Fusion console/handheld prototypes then they won't need a live presentation. The main stream media will eat this up!

WhiteTrashGuy commented on Ubisoft Now "Fully Focused" On Making The Wii ...:

I am fine with them holding it back. Optimize it for the WiiU's GPU. Look at how good ME3 and DEUS EX turned out . . . And Ubisoft should not be worried about sales as WATCH_DOGS will be the only adult open-world GTA-style offering on the system.

WhiteTrashGuy commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

shakes head I was so annoyed by the choppy quality of last years streamed direct. I was really hoping that they would do a live stage presentation. The Treehouse Stream seems cool, though. I guess we'll see. I just think a televised press conference on SpikeTV here in the States would bring in other gamers, be they Microsoft, Sony, or PC; and not just the Nintendo loyal. With the situation they are in I would assume Nintendo would want as much exposure as they can get.

WhiteTrashGuy commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

@ScorpionMG I realize that, but they need the hype. Show off some YOSHI'S YARN, HYRULE WARRIORS, BAYONETTA, and X. Have a STAR FOX or F-ZERO (3ds or WiiU) reveal in the middle (or even a new franchise). Then at the end say 'By the way....' And then show a clip or trailer for a METROID, ETERNAL DARKNESS, or ZELDA. I'm not expecting all of these in one year, but I am expecting more than a lackluster fireworks show via NINTENDOLAND or a streaming Direct that has too keep buffering in the middle of all the trailers; effectively ruining any sense of wonder or surprise. If they do a DIRECT only, then it needs to be pre-recorded in Japan.

WhiteTrashGuy commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

I was thinking about E3 last night. I appreciate what Nintendo was trying to do last year, but I think it ultimately hurt WiiU coverage by the main stream media. Also, the choppiness of the Direct last year left a bad taste in my mouth. No, the Big N needs a stage presentation with ZELDA U, METROID U, and some STAR FOX U or F-ZERO HD reveals. Personally, I hope RETRO shows that they've been working on ETERNAL DARKNESS 2.

WhiteTrashGuy commented on Video: Silicon Studios Shows Off Tech Demo of ...:

@Yorumi I was not saying anything negative. I have followed Nintendo's chip sets since the SNES. What I meant was that the Wii U has gotten a bad rep because all of these designers had problems porting titles from the 360 because those games are CPU heavy. Sadly the Wii U needed/needs those ports to drive hardware. But now so many Devs are jumping on that thinking. Even Nintendo has admitted that they were not prepared for the jump to HD. If more game engines become available that are scalable and Wii U friendly then maybe more designers will give the WiiU a go.
