XCWarrior commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:

I wonder how much of this amiibo supply shortage really is due to popularity, or simply scalpers buying all of the amiibos on the shelves that aren't the common ones just so they can resale on ebay.

I mean seriously people, they are little plastic statues that hardly enhance gameplay at all. And they are $13. You all can't want them that badly.

XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 18th December (North America):

Amazing week to say the least:

For sure buying tonight: Blok Drop X Twisted Fusion, Art of Balance WiiU, Cube Creator Demo, Mega Man 2 3 and 4 on GB, and I believe Ping+ is also on sale, going to pick that up.

Games I recommend: Steamworld Dig, Art of Balance 3DS, the WiiU Mega Man games, Nano Assault Neo.

And games I'll probably get in the future but I'm already buying too much tonight: Toss N Go, Fairune and League of Heroes.

And to the currently 34% of you that said “nothing for me this week,” branch out and stop buying just first party titles! There are fun games you are totally missing out on. Try them this week on the cheap!

XCWarrior commented on Review: Heptrix (Wii U eShop):

Was hoping for a decent Tetris Clone. But your review makes it pretty clear this isn't it. Glad you guys used the full scale of the 1 to 10 scoring spectrum.

XCWarrior commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Wii U This Hol...:

Five reasons to own Wii U, quick version:
1) Smash
2) All the great games that are already out and probably at a discount - Monster HUnter Tri Ultimate, MK8, Pikmin 3, W101, Bayonetta 2, DK Tropical Freeze, Hyrule Warriors
3) The eshop and all its wonderful Indy games
4) Free online play
5) Off TV Play (It's the feature you don't realize you absolutely want)!

XCWarrior commented on Review: Castle Conqueror EX (3DS eShop):

Play Coin usage? Bravo to them on that. Would love to see a list of all 3rd party games that use Play Coins.

Like strategy games and the Circle games I've played. Might pick this up down the road.

XCWarrior commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Wow, not even games with low funding targets are doing well at least on this list. Maybe players aren't willing to pay anymore b/c of so many unfinished games? Early Access on Steam can't be helping, people are seeing games that are rubbish due to being no where near done.

XCWarrior commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

@Quorthon @XFsWorld I have a PS3 and have had PS Plus in the past. Totally love the concept of free games each month. There's usually 1 or 2 games that peak my interest. I just don't understand how devs like that concept. I mean why would you ever buy a game on PS4 knowing it will be free down the road? But I'd say out of the free games I got during those times, I'd say only 2 or 3 I really enjoyed. I expect As Credd Unity to be free by March. Games that do bad critically almost always end up on PS+.

It costs less if you don't factor in sales.
It has a bigger library.
You don't pay for a monthly online subscription.
And of course Mario, Zelda, Smash, Bayonetta 2, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, etc.

Yeah, of course its the best value.

XCWarrior commented on The November Club Nintendo Rewards Are Now Up ...:

@AmyGrrl To answer your questions:
1) Wii games are playable on WiiU, and some people still play on their Wii.
2) Repeats aren't a bad thing if you missed your chance at FREE games the first time.
3) Better, more popular games actually sell and make them money. These games I bet don't.
4) They pick games based on 1st party titles mostly, b/c they own the rights and maybe a few 3rd party titles if the developer gives them the OK. And they aren't going to put 12 games up there if they only have a small collection to rotate of games with popular people but don't swell well.

XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 13th November (North America):

I'm sure the words MK8 DLC is going to be said a lot, so....

Buy Abyss, for $1.50 that's a great price.

Looking forward to Pokemon TCG, but man $6 for a Game Boy game? They sure are acting like Pokemon is a popular franchise or something, lol.

And finally, I hope Xavier on WiiU eshop is good. I like the premise, but then again anything with dinosaurs at least has my attention!

I would give the lives of 100 other Nintendo Life users to have this game put on the virtual console. Your sacrifices will be for the good of all us other players!

XCWarrior commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Microsoft is in panic mode. THey are bleeding money right now when looking at their entire company. They were being yelled at by analysts last year to sell off the Xbox division. If things don't pick up, those talks will return.

This generation has become too expensive for game developers to make "AAA" game profitable on a consistent basis. That is going to cause problems for awhile.

XCWarrior commented on Nintendo 64x64: Tetrisphere:

I want a 3DS or WiiU port of this game. I miss it so much... yeah I know I could just go to the basement and play it on my N64.

...hmm, maybe I should tonight. Fun game!

Good grief people. You want DK? Buy the WiiU game that came out this year. Cause so far about 1,000 people did. So NO DK FOR YOU!

ANYWAY, lots more good indy titles. Might have to pick up Squids Odyssey on either WiiU or 3DS. I remember it got good review. I need more time to play some games!

XCWarrior commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

I'm glad to hear the non-XL model is still bigger in terms of screen size, and that the battery life is better than my original 3DS.

I'm not happy about having to buy a microSD card. I bought a 32 gig SD card for my 3DS so I wouldn't have to replace it.

I also thought it was odd you guys didn't point out the differences between playing Smash Bros on a 3DS vs a new 3DS. I mean the OG 3DS by everything I've read barely runs Smash. I would think there would be a noticeable difference with this system.

I am hoping we see a new 3DS Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate bundle here in the US. I'll be picking up the new system and that game at the same time next year.
