@Pichubby
Stupid? Hahahahah! How is it stupid? If someone wants to be homosexual that is ultimately their personal choice. Not yours. Not your religion's. Not society's. I'm not homosexual, but I don't hate on others if they don't agree with my sentiment.

XavandSo commented on Wii U System Update 4.1.0 Available Now:

I'd have to side with Einherjar on this one. All my copies of Nintendo's first party titles are running flawlessly. I've noticed no frame rate drops. Even my third-party titles (ACIII/IV, Ghosts, Black Ops II, Splinter Cell, Rayman) all run solidly. Though, this is a person who found no drops in GTA V on PS3 and keeps his gaming PC locked to 30FPS. So disregard my comment.

XavandSo commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:

I still have my DedSec edition on pre-order. I don't care how long, my Wii U must play it. I've been defending this version from my PS4-owning buddies, who try to persuade me into getting a PS4 for W_D. I don't care how long, I must hold that Watch Dogs game case in my hand and put the disc in my drive. It's more ideological for me, than anything now... I'm 27, but I'm still in petty arguments with other grown adults about ports. It's 1996 all over again.

So. Hyped. For. Mario. Kart. 8. That. I. Even. Pre-ordered. In. January. 2013.
I honest to the Goddesses of the Triforce, I have dreams about Mario Kart 8. I did last night. It shot the Wii U's sales so high, it beat the PS2 by 20 million. I musta' been trippin' on LSD or somethin'.

XavandSo commented on Hardware Review: Retro-Bit Super Retro Trio & ...:

I have the Retro-Duo 3.0, the model before this one, and it is working admirably. I haven't had any issues with it, as even games that people say don't work in the system play perfectly, like Mario RPG and the Super GameBoy. Mega Drive games don't interest me at all, so I'm not goig to upgrade.

... The Wii U browser sucks for typing into.

XavandSo commented on Ubisoft's Updated Line-Up Still Includes Watch...:

Thank god! I really didn't want to buy this on my PC. I just couldn't bring myself to play it on something other than my Wii U, when I was hyped for that version. If Watch Dogs is Ubisoft's last major swansong for the Wii U, I will be pleased. For all of the Wii U's problems, Ubisoft gave it a very good run, unlike EA.

XavandSo commented on $1.2 Billion Wiped Off Nintendo's Market Value...:

@MAB Isn't that Spaced? Such an epic series.

I've been thinking about investing in Nintendo lately, because Nintendo's share price collapsed in the N64/GC era and then shot up considerably with the Wii. History can repeat itself. Even if Nintendo does the worst thing imaginable by going mobile, I'll make a fat profit. Lose/Win.

XavandSo commented on Talking Point: Claims of Wii U Third-Party Dev...:

@XFsWorld Indeed. I've put my $150 down. We have one last shot to convince "Triple-A" 3rd party devs to support the Wii U. I've bought all major third party releases on my Wii U instead of my gaming PC or PS3, even though it's lacking simple features like DLC.

I loved the Wii, but from 2008 onwards, it collected dust coming out only for major Nintendo titles. Not even my GameCube or Nintendo 64 was like that. I'd hate a repeat for my Wii U. Please...

XavandSo commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014:

My top three are:

  • Watch Dogs. It looks amazing and even though GamePad features won't be used, I still crave for an open-world GTA clone on Wii U.
  • Project CARS. Having been blown away by Gran Turismo 6 on 7 year old hardware (I was underwhelmed with Forza 5, considering the Xbone is "next gen"), I would love to see the Wii U give Polyphony a run for it's money.
  • Monolith Soft's X. I have no words to describe the hype.

XavandSo commented on Nintendo Network 3DS Promotion to Offer Free S...:

@Worthy Indeed. Free stuff like that justifies my 32GB SD Card. I still play those Ambassador games, I'm stuck half-way in Fire Emblem, it's just not my cup of tea. Anyway, thank you Nintendo, my birthday is smack dab in the middle, that is if it comes to Australia..

XavandSo commented on French Manufacturer Renault Rolls Into The Pro...:

I'm so synched for this game. It looks amazing! After playing some Gran Turismo 6 and staring in awe about what the dated PS3 can handle, I can't wait what the Wii U can accomplish. I am bracing myself for a Wii U version cancellation, like the PS3 and 360 version, though.

XavandSo commented on Digital Foundry Heaps Praise on Super Mario 3D...:

Just coming back from the NeoGAF Assassin's Creed IV Digital Foundry thread and becoming all gloomy about my Wii U, seeing this made me smile. I have full faith in Nintendo's 1st and 2nd party teams to showcase the Wii U. Good show, lads, bring on X and Zelda.

I am genuinely shocked at the Mario Teaches Typing hate, I own MTT 2 and I found it quite fun! Anyway, I'm mixed with the idea of a Nintendo Tablet. If done right, it'll kick Apple and Google's duopoly in the shins and boost Nintendo's mainstream hardware. On the otherside, it could weaken the Nintendo brand and damage core gamers.

XavandSo commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

@MadAdam81 That's the same reason (barring my near-obsessive Ninty fanboism) I got a Wii U at launch. $428 AUD was still alot for me, but considering the $550 and $600 pricetag for the PS4 and Xbox One, it's acceptable. I breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Down Under, there is a considerable price difference, unlike Europe or NA. That might help the Wii U in our Christmas in Summer.

XavandSo commented on Video: Experts Believed Nintendo Was In Troubl...:

I saw this awhile back and it still keeps me jealous. Sometimes I do wish I grew up in the late 1980's in suburban America, just to experience the Golden Age of Nintendo.. Ah... A man can dream.

Nintendo aren't going anywhere, the 3DS is too strong. The Wii U does have challenges ahead, but if Nintendo made profit off both the Nintendo 64 and GameCube, I have a feeling they'll eventually profit off the Wii U.

XavandSo commented on Feature: Where Is Your Wii Balance Board?:

I'm going to be controversial and say I never, ever got a Wii Balance Board. I wasn't interested (still am) in the Wii series of games. The only one that caught my eye was Wii Music. That said, I saw one at a local second-hand store for 50c. I'll get it one day.

XavandSo commented on Nintendo Provides Reassurances on Wii Availabi...:

Personally, I want this as it increases the chance of the Wii Mini being launched in Australia. It just looks so damn cool!
Realistically, this is bad as the Wii U should get priority. What happened to Nintendo's habit to can their previous console when it gets a successor? I couldn't get a boxed GameCube because of that. Grr.

What a Gaffe.
This dude, who I've never heard of, is saying that Nintendo, one of the best entertainment companies in the world, sell out to Disney, one of the worst entertainment companies in the world. My brain does not compute.

XavandSo commented on Video: Watch_Dogs Footage Shows Off Hacking, O...:

I've still got my Wii U DedSec copy preordered. I admit, the game does look blander everytime I see it, but I guess that's because Ubisoft's been showing the exact same footage over and over again for months. I'm still looking forward to this with some epicsauce Gamepad use.

XavandSo commented on Mario Kart Arcade GP DX Racing to Arcades:

I enjoyed the 1st Arcade Mario Kart, I still have my memory card thing for it. It was fun and enjoyable. I would take out a loan for one for my games room, but I can't seem to find them at all. D:

Nevertheless, if this one comes to Australia, I'll play it. It seems fun. Anyone else think they should hide this in MK8, like F-Zero AX in GX?

XavandSo commented on Review: EarthBound (Wii U eShop):

My picture says it all.

Even though I live in Australia, I've liked EarthBound ever since I was 7-8 through Super Smash Bros on the N64, but I despise illegal emulation, so I didn't get to play it... Until last year when I imported a mint Mother 2. The game is perfect, lives well to the hype.

To any of my Starmen.net buddies, PSI/PK Seige worked, well done guys.

XavandSo commented on Pikmin 3 is Playable Next Weekend At GameStop ...:

When I read EB Games in the title, I immediately got excited at the prospect of an Australian showcase. Nonetheless, we sorely miss out... again. I wish Nintendo of Australia wasn't such a regional office and actually did marketing or at the very least have a front man such as Reggie or Shibata. We miss out too much. I hear all about these roadshows, experience showcases and just sigh at it.

XavandSo commented on Satoru Iwata - "There Are Some Reasons Behind"...:

I import a lot of classic Japanese games off eBay. Just today I received Super Mario RPG for my Region-Free Retro-Duo. Imagine in 20 years, with American/European Wii U/3DS games being uber expensive, the only means to buy and play classics natively, with a budget, is to buy Japanese titles. I hate the fact that I had to buy a Retro-Duo, since my Australian SNES cannot accept NTSC games, but back then there was a difference in Television signals, so I understand that. But today? The NTSC/PAL divide is pretty much eliminated, as seen by the competitor's consoles. The legal rating mumbo jumbo is a flat out lie. I adore you Iwata-san, but please...

XavandSo commented on Deathstroke DLC Confirmed For Batman: Arkham O...:

Good, I'll pick it up then, I liked Arkham City.
I'm willing to support any third party that stands behind Nintendo. I currently have pre-orders for Watch Dogs and ACIV, with my long overdue Legends pre-order collecting dust in my abyss of my wallet. CoD Ghosts and this are games for later in the coming year. I only have my 1st Party eye on SM3DW, but haven't had the slightest inch of pre-ordering it.

Their eyes.... Too much 2000's Pac-Man art design.... Too much sadness.
On-topic: These are fantastic pieces, I like the attention to accurately recreate the era of drawing. This is the best Walt Disneyesque conversion I've seen.

Isn't it obvious that the Wii would get features on parity to the other systems, I doubt families will be buying a PS4/One for Skylanders, let alone anything else on the systems and isn't the Wii the most selling system for Skylanders?

Uh... Unless June is July over in the mother country, Perth's Supanova has already happened. I went two days ago. I was at the Nintendo booth... I had so many StreetPass hits it cannot be explained. Over 130. Too bad I had Sticker Star in my 3DS instead of Black 2...
