Williaint commented on Poll: Which Characters Do You Want to Win the ...:

@OrganSeller I just chose NONE OF THOSE, because I wanted Waluigi (I did put him on the Nintendo Ballot)
Waluigi!
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.

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 Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Should be Prod...:

@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:

  • LoZ live action series... There's going to be a lot of Green Screening in this Netflix series.
  • Bring Back anything even close to Kirby RBAY! , and I'll vomit. Or a live action Kirby. I'll vomit even more.
  • I think Kid icarus could work as a live action show, but Animated would probably be better
  • A live action Metroid would be a lot like Alien, and I'd love to see realistic Mother Brain, Metroid, Samus, and Ridley!
  • I would not like to see F-Zero as a TV Show. There is no possible premise that could work well.
  • Star Fox Could work, animated. As funny as it might be, I don't want to see a bunch of characters in fur-suits yelling "DO A BARREL ROLL".
    -I'd like to know more about the Splatoon, before I see an animated show. Since it may not lend itself to TV, I couldn't say...
  • The 'Super Mario' series really lends itself to TV. As far as style goes, It would be great to see it "Wario-esque". Speaking of Wario, I'd love to see more Wario and Waluigi. I don't think there needs to be a live action segment, but it could work!
  • Again, I'd hate to see fur-suit Donkey kong, or Diddy! As much as I'd love to see "Banana-slamma" come back, I just don't think having DK come back to TV is wise...

Other ideas:

  • A live action Bayonetta.
  • A live action Punch-Out, like Rocky, but with great characters, like Mike Tyson, and Glass Joe (And don't forget the montages; lots of montages).

Williaint commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

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...:

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 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.

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...

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 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 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.

#SouperChase3000 Then you didn't beat it completely...

ALSO: It is a two player game, 2 player ALTERNATIVE!

Williaint commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

My choice is Super Mario World:

  • Koopa Kids were actually named (not the stupid TV show names)....
  • World introduced a "sports" theme... You could say it influenced the hundreds of Mario Sports games to follow, though it probably didn't...
  • Also, As Legend has it, Miyamoto wanted to give Mario a Horse... so Yoshi Probably would have happened, inevitably, but it may not have been a Dinosaur / Dragon.

Super Mario Bros. 3 is influential, only because it came first...

@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.

@Dipper723
The 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 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"

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!

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...
