The only issues I had were the times, which were terrible.I also didn't think having only an hour to play was a smart plan. When they held the Mario Kart 8 demos, at best buy, they went on for hours! It's like giving someone a penny, and saying then telling them they have to wait. Speaking of money, It's over $70? I could buy two games, at that price.

I'd rather see a 2D Metroid.
Williaint commented on Poll: Is It Time For a Fresh Alternative to th...:
If we lost all the games we already had, and there was no way to transfer them (in this tentative better version), I'd be disappointed.
Williaint commented on Video: This Is The 3D Sonic Game We All Truly ...:
That doesn't even look fun to play.... It looks kind of ugly.
Williaint commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:
@jo2w3 His final smash should be the DK Rap.
Cranky Kong wouldn't be a bad addition. He could use his cane like a sword, or club... Obviously, he can't jump too high, move too fast, but has a very strong cane attack.
@OrganSeller I just chose NONE OF THOSE, because I wanted Waluigi (I did put him on the Nintendo Ballot)
He's got a great Flying move, Down Stomp, Throw (a kick), and even a distance Attack: throwing Bob-bombs. As long as he's not a clone of Luigi or Wario. I picture him as a character that has a large, quick, step but a slower jumps and attack.
My second choice would be: Advance Wars CO! It would be similar to Poke-master, With a Plane, Mech, Mid-tank, Copter...
I'm almost positive, However, that there will be a Wool Yoshi, and/or a rainbow curse Clay Kirby (That would work like Pac-man). Another probable character would be the inklings.
I wouldn't mind seeing more Sonic Characters, Knuckles or Tails could work similarly.

We all know how Nintendo's all about Gyroscopes...
Williaint commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's DeNA Plans and Ideas...:
I doubt that Nintendo would leave the Home Console console market before it's competition...

I'd like to pre order the Dolphin, or Ultra 64.
Williaint commented on Official Nintendo UK Store Sends New Nintendo ...:
@JellySplat I agree with you, I think those complicated Skull Kid ones are pretty ugly. They'd Make a better instruction manual cover, or poster.
Williaint commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:
@Emaan You can make any series 'Saturday Morning'; Even Half Life, or Resident Evil. But you see the problem? It gives children (Or parents with no knowledge) a false vision of these games. This is what happened with Kirby: RBAY! I think Some Nintendo series would be better for a mature audience...
@Speed_Stick_2600 I like Chameleon Twist, too, but that's not actually developed or produced by Nintendo... It's Sunsoft.
@Culex123 Anime is still animation.
Williaint commented on Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS G...:
I'd like to see Capcom or Konami develop a Metroid game...
@CanisWolfred Kirby Right Back At Ya is an abomination! It's 10 x worse than the SUPER MARIO BROS. Movie.
@Vindignant No. Disney + Nintendo is a bad IDEA. Wasn't that discussion raised again, LAST WEEK?
Since I love to go through lists:
Williaint commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:
@Sonicman The only game that deserves that is Kirby SuperStar, and it only gets 80/10 (8 games in one)
So, I'm playing the original, that I got from my Wii. It's still the most tedious LoZ game I've played. I'm even taking into consideration how much repetition was in the Adventure of Link!There's a very slim chance I'll get this game, even with the New 3DS.
Williaint commented on Editorial: Nintendo's YouTube Creators Program...:
I was actually going to agree with you about that "As professional as IGN". But yeah, I agree with that!
@steamtrain Not a bad idea. Similar to the Super Mario Super show 'hosts'
Williaint commented on Weirdness: A Budding Little Mac Beats Mike Tys...:
I've performed the two biggest short cuts in Mario Kart 64 (Wario Stadium, and Rainbow Road) blindfolded. Of Course, that just takes Muscle memory...
This deal, it's kind of like 'bribed exposure'.
NINTENDO: Here, take a little money and show us lookin' good!YOUTUBER: Sounds like a deal, "Friend"!NINTENDO: Now, you must follow these strict rules. Also, you have to be original.YOUTUBER: What the... Original? I don't understand!
This bribed exposure will only create a strongly biased outlook on anything submitted, though this program. So, It's not going to help out Nintendo out.
Nintendo PLAY, on their website, seems to be exactly what these "Pewdiepie kids" want.
My solution? Make a web series starring Reggie. His Kick-ass 'tude will get some internet attention. This is marketing money spent much better. An even better idea is Animation. Nintendo's characters look great as cartoons. Create a short series in the same simulated claymation as Kirby's Rainbow curse, to tell people ABOUT the game, and the story. This same idea could work for any series. As long as they don't Sonic-Boom it.
@steamtrain Well Said, steamtrain. Well said. People will find something to complain about, no matter what happens. If there isn't something to complain about, then a problem may be created.
Williaint commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:
I'm glad I haven't spent my points yet!
Williaint commented on Talking Point: Star Fox for Wii U is an Ongoin...:
@NintyMan Don't hold your breath! The Next Direct will most likely be heavily based on New 3DS, Majora's Mask, and Kirby's Rainbow Curse. It should be within the next two weeks. Wait a second, wasn't that last Direct? The next Direct probably will happen, within the next two weeks, but I wouldn't be surprised if we don't hear about the new Star Fox until E3. I would enjoy co-op mode; one player controls weapons, one player steers. Or, One player plays Fox, second player plays as Falco, Peppy, Slippy, or Katt? Or, One player plays Fox, the second controls Great Fox (ROB).As long as motion controls are optional, I'll probably be happy.
Williaint commented on Splatoon Updates Give More Insight Into Stages...:
Well, I'm certainly more excited for this game now !
The customization, and upgrades... It's looking a lot better than my original view of it, which was: you get a few squid-people, with a few set weapons, and have to cover the most area with ink. As DerpSandwich mentioned, it looked like a $10 e-shop game.
Williaint commented on Weirdness: Researchers Working on Mario Artifi...:
If they didn't use Mario, they, could have some actual game...
Williaint commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. and amiibo Ha...:
I'm not going to actively pursue Amiibo...
I might become more interested in one, later, but not right now.
The established Skylanders, and Disney figures certainly would overshadow Amiibo... Something that is hardly advertised...
Williaint commented on Sharp Gearing Up to Supply 'Free-Form' LCD Scr...:
Either it's a new gameboy (or portable) idea, or I'm a loudmouth shnook.
Williaint commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:
I Had a lot of fun, with the N64... not as much as with the SNES, but still a lot of fun. I didn't really like Goldeneye, but I loved Perfect Dark.
Williaint commented on Frenchy Bird is Flapping Its Way to Wii U in E...:

A Nintendo Mobile device...
I think it's a bad idea, just because I doubt it would be appealing to the "Hardcore" Phoners.
Williaint commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U St...:
It will probably be out Nov. 21st or later. But, no matter what the release date is, this game is looking good.
Williaint commented on Rumour: Dubious Walmart Listing Suggests Suppo...:
Maybe Walmart thinks Club Nintendo is a News site...
Williaint commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Nintendo 3DS T...:
Waiting for the "NEW" 3DS would be a better plan. If you wanted a regular — after that — you'd be able to buy them at a discounted price.
Williaint commented on French Health and Safety Body Recommends Child...:
I thought it was Children under 7....
I guess you could say, the 3DS is really not a toy, as it excludes the "Early Childhood" rated games... (Well, it could...)
I usually check out a 3DS game in 3D first, but usually don't leave it on.
@Dinosaurs @Specter_Twilight Great points.
@Dave24 You managed to explain depth perception before eye did...
It gives some people a false sense of vertigo. That's the problem, epicdude.
Williaint commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Wii U Compare To Th...:
The PS4 version is more blurry...The 360 version isn't quite as good....
Williaint commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:
I've always been a Nintendo gamer, but I've had a lot of respect for Sonic. Putting on that Red Scarf has not helped Him in anyway. Sonic Adventure was fun... they could go back to something like that...
Williaint commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):
@Gridatttack I've only been playing Single Player, and I've had a blast! The only thing bothering me about this game is that my friends are never online at the same time, as me!
@ultraraichu I know what you mean, the stage builder is good, but I've spent hours trying to make something, and accidentally double tapping.
For the most part, the online has been great. I've encountered a couple battles where it was very, very choppy, and once spent at least a half-hour in the pre-battle practice mode, waiting for other fighters...
I'd say it's higher than 9, but I don't think any game should get a 10.
Williaint commented on The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask Confirmed F...:
I would accept it as gift... I'd rather get Captain Toad. I still can't understand what people see in the game... If they want bad games a, few were published on the CDi.It doesn't look much better than Ocarina of Time 3DS.It's not a terrible game, but it just isn't fun. But it's also a personal bias, being the explore-everywhere-before-moving-on-type of gamer
Williaint commented on Preview: Having a Brawl With Super Smash Bros....:
@Diddy_kong It wasn't that awful, it was the year of Luigi! @drewb0203 The reason it's so exciting is because it has so much... content. Unless you aren't a fan of the series, and I know some people aren't, it's hard not to be hyped. Of course, I'm looking forward to "Zelda U" (who isn't?), and they haven't shown a percentage as much as they have for Smash Bros. 4 Wii U.
Williaint commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:
If they reduce it too much, they'll make it look 'cheap', and perpetuate the value of a toy. However, they could have temporary price drops... like what Microsft is doing, here...
Williaint commented on Super Mario World:
#SouperChase3000 Then you didn't beat it completely...
ALSO: It is a two player game, 2 player ALTERNATIVE!

OH BOY! The Wario controller! Do you think they'll have scratch 'n' sniff, too?

Another reference to CONSOLE WARS, the book.
And yes, that scarf is so very NOT-Sonic.
Williaint commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:
My choice is Super Mario World:
Super Mario Bros. 3 is influential, only because it came first...
Williaint commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):
I'd give the Demo a 9, and it's severely limited compared to the full version.
Williaint commented on Talking Point: History Shows Us That Nintendo'...:
@DESS-M-8 Now I have nothing else to add! Thanks for beating me to the punch (Now I don't have to write anything) : ) Also, the book "Console wars" is a pretty good historical document.
@Dipper723The CD format would have made the N64 a lot slower; would you like to change disks after going into every other painting, in Mario 64?
@Jetset Thanks for the link. That's a great reference.
Gamecube's handle should have been removed... It served no purpose.
Williaint commented on Nintendo 64x64: Chameleon Twist:
OOH! I remember this! A lot of fun!
Williaint commented on Retailer Lists Super Smash Bros. Wii U for 21s...:
@123akis They are trying to make a point: "UBISOFT GAMES DON'T SELL WELL ON NINTENDO."
My predictions: Whenever they do the Smash Bros. U date Reveal, they probably will have a complete "Direct", which will contain more information on early 2015 games, like Mario Maker, as well as Amiibos and the PACK 1 MK8 DLC. The Direct's date will probably be within a week (give or take) of October 31, just before that MK8 DLC. Then, About November 10th, they'll have a big Treehouse presentation full of Amiibo stuff, and a 5 hour Super Smash Bros. for Wii U demonstration. The Public demo should be launched shortly after, and about two weeks later the game launches...
To answer the topic (as if anyone cares): If it doesn't come out just before the astounding Black Friday, it's launch will probably be mid December. I'm getting it at launch, and at retail, because it would be days before I'd be able to finish downloading the downloadable version.
Nintendo has done something brilliant with the "Only a few can play the early demo" campaign. It seems reasonable that they would do the same thing with the Wii U's version. I hope they expand it, though... More like "If you got the 3DS version, you can play the demo"
UPDATE: I guess I was pretty close to the mark!
Williaint commented on Video: This New Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo...:
@drewb0203 According to NintendoLife, you'll be able to transfer your old stuff to the mini SD.
I'm really excited. I thought it was coming in late October, but it's only a few weeks away (Well, okay, about 5...). From what I played at the demo, earlier this year, the 3DS game really piqued my interest. I was thinking "Oh, I'll just get the Wii U version",but I've since changed my mind... Now, As long as I can change the control schemes, I'll be happy!
