Williaint commented on Retailer Lists Super Smash Bros. Wii U for 21s...:

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"

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!

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

@shibbyduckegg You know you can replace that battery, right? I had the same problem with Silver, and just changed the battery, it worked like new.

My opinion on ROMs is that they should be eliminated. While emulators have a right to exist, as they are just software, their existence is useless without ROMs. I have played homemade games, for instance a Mario and Sonic game, which was very incomplete. I'm a little on the fence about games tied to dead companies, as they wouldn't be getting any money anyway....
There are a few things I like about emulators is the fact they allow for "Game Genie/Shark" type codes. Having multiple frozen-game-states can be handy. Even though they ruin the original game experience a little...
Another thing I find despicable, is the way that Emulators and ROMs are advertised over the internet. There are several "Why pay for these games, when you can play them free!" popups, or whatnot, on 'top ten list' sites.
I have noticed the abominable price of retro games, which is pretty bad. I've wanted to play Final Fantasy 7 for years, but can't because the cheapest that game goes for is over $100 (comparably, I bought a PSX console with two controllers and four save things for $10).

There is no way to make downloading these games for free morally right. Not wanting to pay, or not have ever played them are not validators.
It's exactly the same as pirating music, videos, or anything else the internet has to offer (hypocrisy-cough).
So, to reiterate:
IT'S BAD.

Williaint commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

My cousin bought an XBOXONE, but as it was just collecting dust, he decided to go for PS4. Now the PS4 is collecting dust. Destiny is a one of the few games I could see playing, but it's really more of a PC game, in my Opinion...
My Wii U may be collecting dust, but that's because I don't move or dust things.
If I got another console, it would be a PS4, but that's pretty unlikely — especially judging from the current line-up. I'm not sure what the appeal of FIFA is... it seems that everyone plays it... Or played it for a while... (Like Battlefield or CoD) Also, I've heard many real-life (and online) testimonies about not investing in a PS4 or XBONE, for the main reason it seems people won't get a Wii U: Not enough games to merit it.

The Wii U may not wind up being a 'primary' console, for the 'Serious-Hardcore' (As far as gaming goes, the Wii U is my primary). It will be interesting to see, in the next year, how much more popular the Wii U will get...

Williaint commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

Mobile games are our future!
There have been a lot (or maybe just a few) of bad software releases for the eshop; You know, shovelware?
I think some people need to read a brief history of Nintendo (or maybe just Rare).

Williaint commented on Feature: Braving the Queue At Nintendo's Best ...:

There Were two pairs of the 3DS version set up...
The biggest problem I had was that I didn't like the control scheme.... I kept pressing the wrong buttons. It's too bad there wasn't a gamecube controller thing set up, and I hope there is the ability to change the controls.... or I'm going to wind up being a button masher.

Williaint commented on FIFA 15 Is Lacing Its Boots For A Wii And 3DS ...:

Well, it's still coming to Wii U, unless they make a block that doesn't allow you to play it on the Wii U's Wii emulator...
I'll liken EA's decision to supporting the NES in 1994.
The Only EA game I want to play is The SIMS 4, but not on my game console (If it was, then Wii U would be the best choice).

Williaint commented on Talking Point: Mii, Myself and I - The Argumen...:

It actually will be fun to fight as Mii, or against another...

"From what we have seen so far, the moves the Miis possess are either heavily derived from other characters (for example, Mii Gunner appears to have Samus' charge shot and Mega Man's blaster attack) or profoundly generic."

Miis are generic, so having a generic move set fits them fine.

If you don't want to fight as them, then DON'T ( Like I won't fight as a Pac-Man with legs.). However, the option is there... and there are probably more people who would complain if it wasn't.

Williaint commented on First Impressions: Solving the Puzzle of Capta...:

This game looks like fun, But I'm kind of expecting it to be less than the price of a full game. If there are over 400 puzzles, I would say it would be worth full price. My guess is it has under 100 puzzles, including the boss fights.
Super Luigi U gave people a full games worth of content, at half the price. I can imagine it could be sold for $30.

I don't think that's the final Box-art... It's releasing in the "holidays", isn't it?

Williaint commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

@rjejr "My only disappointment is that after 18 months of Wii U games Nintendo still hasn't taken advantage of the U in Wii U's name.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate
Super Mario Universe
..."
I completely agree, there isn't enough U's in the titles. Smash Bros 'ultimate' suggests the final incarnation, nothing can be better than ultimate. It's 'Jumping the Shark'.
'Super Mario Universe' will probably happen (Whether it's a compilation game, or an actual SM64/Sunshine/galaxy-esque game).
I could see a "Yoshi Ukelele and dance", if his/it's popularity increases again...
Kirby's Umbrella Curse... Look out for that one.
I'm glad they didn't reveal a new Mario game for this, or next year (Mario maker doesn't count; I hope they confirm a Super Mario World skin).

I'm disappointed there was no "Wario & Waluigi: Uber Heist" or "Ultra Bounty Hunters"... I'd love to see a co-op game with Waluigi : )

Nintendo may have won E3, but I disagree that there IS a competition. This is basically a fan-based opinion.
The treehouse really elaborated on some of the games, which made me more excited about Giant Robot (make a stupid robot, then make your friend play as it)
@Shambo I know how you feel about the LoZ U Trailer. I sat gawk-eyed with my jaw wide open for the whole thing, especially when Aonuma explained it. I'm sure the map and item systems will work excellent with the G-Pad (like in Windwaker HD).

Nintendo Predictions FOR THE FUTURE:
Captain Toad's treasure trek will not be a full-priced game, but about $20, very similar to Super Luigi. It's going to have to be released a month earlier, than Smash Bros Wii U (unless you get some kind of discount from buying Smash Bros...)
Hyrule Warriors... Well, it will definitely appeal to Warriors fans, and have some appeal to LoZ fans, so it may be worth my time. I'll get it if it has a decent review, from a few websites.
It looked like a few of the games like Splatoon or Mario Maker, could come out this year... Of course, they would probably be overshadowed by Smash Bros....
Amiibo? There's no doubt it will sell. To Kids, collectors, and anyone who likes the idea... or is mildly interested. It would make a simple and easy gift, Maybe more personal than an eShop card.

Williaint commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Life's E3 Reaction - Live!:

I thought it was great. The new LoZ looks amazing (I couldn't take my eyes off the screen), I'm really excited for Mario Maker (Though I hope, in the final version, they have a Super Mario World skin), Splatoon looks like a fun game, The Mii-fighter actually made me interested in that character, however, I'm still not sure about using the AMIIBOs...
Devils Third also looks like a good FPS. Captain toad's adventure looks like it could be fun, I am going to assume it won't be priced as a full game.
I'm glad they used the sarcastic-clever humour with the Robot Chicken animations.

@Heng-Yu I'm surprised you feel that way about most of those games (I agree with you about Amiibo).

Williaint commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's System Updates Bring...:

I'm not really interested in the warning system... I'll check it when I'm interested.

Well, I use folders on my 3DS, so who knows?
Maybe with Update 6.0.0 it'll be as synchronized with the 3DS as OS X Yosemite is s'posed to be with iOS 8...

Williaint commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

I feel like I've just opened a treasure chest that gave me two hearts, instead of just one; and a Mastersword, and a Long shot with a fire-edged tip... and 10000 rupees.
I was going to give my wavebird to my brother,
but now.... I CAN KEEP IT!
@APHughes the Wavebird is detected the same as a wired GCN controller, by the console, so there is no reason it shouldn't work.

Williaint commented on Check Out This Incredible Valve / Super Smash ...:

Valve would be a good partner for Nintendo. The Half Life Engine is great, and I'd love to see an outsourced Nintendo IP by Valve. If LoZ ever winds up being a first person adventure, Valve would be my preferred team to make that game...
Yes, the companies are similar in that they have their sort of "own little worlds", but I'm not looking forward to a mash up of them.

Williaint commented on Mario Kart Month: Keeping the Mario Kart 8 Rac...:

1. The graphical "Issues" aren't "issues". Human eyes can hardly see the difference between 24 and 25 frames/second, let alone 59 or 60. Also, The resolution can be perfectly scaled, anyway.
2. DLC is an OPTION. You aren't forced to get get it, and online, you wouldn't end up playing against some "superior" racer, unless you had that tentative DLC, as well.
3. The Only DLC, which is more of an update, that should be available for free is the choice to play against friends.
4. I'm all for downloading new tracks, or battle arenas. If they added a new cup, I'd expect it to be like the Super Luigi DLC for New Super Mario Bros Wii U. Something for about $30, with a bunch of extra content seems downright reasonable.
5. I'm not for adding new items, as it sort of changes the game too much. Adding characters also isn't a good idea, but adding extra vehicle mods, as long as they aren't extremely upgraded, isn't a bad thing.

Williaint commented on Review: Candy Match 3 (3DS):

@epicdude12302 It wanted to be original, not like the billions of shovelware games available for mobile and facebook devices...

It would have been funnier, and more relevant to the headline, if it got a score of "1".

Williaint commented on Bandai Namco Announces Pac-Man and the Ghostly...:

I wish Waluigi was a contender... Why couldn't they make a Waluigi & Wario Platformer, instead of this mediocre (I think I just made the 50th use of that word) junk?
I'm sure a large number of people who have a Wii U would enjoy "Museum" over sequels to this game.
I just got a brilliant idea: ONLY MAKE IT FOR 3DS! It's not like it needs help. The only thing I can see a sequel doing is flopping, and making the sales of Wii U worse: Think of Pac Man getting hit by a ghost....

Speaking of ghosts, I feel sorry for those guys in this game.

Williaint commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

Where I live, Winter starts in October, and ends in May.
The only way that this would completely ruin the Wii U would be if it wasn't even HEADING to the Wii U. I wasn't going to get both, but now I probably will. The 3DS version may be great, but The Wii U version looks to be more enjoyable. The 3DS won't be that comfortable to play with.
As they mentioned, the games were still under development, and just because the 3DS version has one feature that the Wii U doesn't get, doesn't mean that the Wii U version won't get other features. I would suggest the two versions get completely different names; "Super Smash Bros. Fight" and "Super Smash Bros. Attack" (Stupid names, but the idea that you could differentiate the versions...)

They didn't even touch on the Wii U and 3DS connectivity (other than saying they'd touch on that later).

Nintendo will be at E3, but whether or not they skip a keynote again remains to be seen.

This ND gave us a more solid look at the game, and crushed some fears about the Online Modes.
