ZachBeacon commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

At least I won’t be envious of the European VC this week. Still, I doubt the American version will be much better and I’d like at least one region outside Japan to get something good.

ZachBeacon commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Evolve It...:

There have been "games coming" for quite a while. Some of those games were announced YEARS ago. We haven't had a game show up since MK8 though.

The Wii U lineup is still better than the PS4 and XBox One but all three need games. The 3DS has been doing better than most everything else but the 2014 lineup is a shadow of 2013.

“Bravely Default” is a pretty lousy name too. The game is named after two gameplay mechanics. That’d be like naming Mario “Jump Fireball”.

Its still a great game though. Ringabel and Edea made the cast interesting and the level of customization helped to alleviate the usual RPG frustrations.

ZachBeacon commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

Why are Marth and Ike even in this game? Nether has featured prominently in a FE game in ages and most people only know who they are because of Smash Bros. Meanwhile, if all my spotpasses are any indication, Awakening was a huge hit. It makes far more sense to replace Marth and Ike with Chrom and someone else. I’ll take Henry over Ike any day; he's just so affably evil. Also it'd be nice to have a "pure magic" type in Smash Bros instead of a brawler (everyone in the old games and Lucina) or someone in the middle (Robin/Avatar)

ZachBeacon commented on Final Fantasy Explorers Announced for 3DS:

I worries me that they’re billing this as a 3DS MMORPG. I appreciate the art style and hope the FF franchise relearns some things from Bravely Default’s success but I have zero interest in paying a subscription fee for a game.

They’ll announce a character everyone expects anyway (Yoshi?) and then maybe give us a date that is far into the future like December 2015 (only to push it back five more times).

I think the best we can hope for at this point is old SM games on Wii U VC.

ZachBeacon commented on Game Boy Advance Games On The Wii U Virtual Co...:

Not surprised. I don’t really expect multiplayer from games that didn’t originally have it. Plus, without a second gamepad, local multiplayer would be problematic.

I just hope that the future DS posts have better wifi support than the originals.
