AdanVC commented on Nintendo Stock Value Climbs to Highest Point S...:

Thanks to the power of MK8, an excellent E3 presentation with a promising lineup of upcoming games and the Luigi death stare the factors that contributed to this rise. That's good! Hope it continues increasing.

DAMN, Yokai Watch! I don't know a single thing about this game but I want it and I want it now! Haha. At this pace, this franchise could be another phenomenon almost like Pokémon! Congratulations fro Level 5 and Nintendo.

AdanVC commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

Hahaha I love Sony (not really) and his arrogance... I actually was planning to buy a PS4 after E3 but once I saw how awful their presentation was, and that incredibly generic/boring/2015 lineup of games make me decide against it completely (except Metal Gear Solid V, honestly). Stop being arrogant because that will ruin your "popularity" right now. It happened with Infamous Second Son. That game was incredibly over-hyped just because of the pretty graphics and end up being an average/bad semi-open world game with average gameplay and repetitive/boring missions and story.

The same goes for The Last of us. That game at least had a great story but the gameplay was average at his best and what it's worst, they are now doing a "Remastered" version wich is nothing but a damn patch just to output the graphics of the game at 1080p/60fps and nothing else... and charge $60 for that. I feel sorry for the loyal fans that will double dip on that because they desserve a better product, meaning a true Remastered version with idk, exclusive PS4 content or some extra hours of campaign that couldn't make it on the original version, new gameplay mechanics utilizing the DS4 touchpad, etc, etc.

I can imagine the same over-hype no sense will occur once Driveclub releases. It will have the prettiest graphics but I'm sure the gameplay will be average. That's the ugly truth on 90% of Sony exclusive games, that's why I skipped the PS3 generation and probably the PS4 gen as well.

I'm not hating in any way but that's what I think of Sony after all this type of "comments" they being doing lately just because PS4 is selling like pancakes. Just stay humble, Sony.

AdanVC commented on Satoru Iwata Reigns Supreme in Annual Sharehol...:

This makes me so happy to be honest. Mr. Iwata is the coolest and most charismatic CEO in the gaming industry. Hope after this he can finally relax for a bit so he can quickly recover from his surgery! All the best, Mr. Iwata! :D

@retro_player_22 Wow, those prices are ridiculous! Why they can't just implement an overall price so that you can keep the game forever and that's it? :S

AdanVC commented on Nintendo Download: 19th June (North America):

Excellent weeks of downloads. Virtual Console however....... Sigh. Ughh I want to download Pushmo and Another World so bad but my wireless router literally explode yesterday during a lightning storm :'( Wish you could buy eShop games in the web as well and not just directly from the consoles.

Daaamn! Now I'm actually pretty excited for Wii U. Lot's of excellent games coming from now until December. Getting all of them (and the 3DS games as well!) Pushmo for Wii U I believe is coming this week isn'it? Yay!

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

I'm willing to pay the full $60 for this game if that's the price they set. Since the first Captain Toad level I played in SM3DW I totally fell in love and I wished this concept could be made into a full game, AND HERE IT IS! Now is one of my most anticipated games of 2014. And it's going to be even more awesome because this will also support Amiibo figures.

AdanVC commented on Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition Releas...:

Looking forward to download it! It's such a great, great game. I was fortunate enough to play this originally on the SNES and I still remember that playthrough. Even if I got stuck on several parts of the game due to it's difficulty (and because I was like, 8 years old, haha)

AdanVC commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

I was thinking in buying a PS4 depending on Sony's E3 presentation this week and well... I'm glad to say it will take probably another whole year until I buy one because starting from the fact that their Press Conference was dead boring full of arrogance and innecesary statistics stuff, the games they shown, none of them attractes me enough to get one. Not even The Last of Us Remastered.

The entire presentation was literally like: "We're perfect, we have the most powerful console and we're full of exclusives, we're arrogant at it's best, TV TV, TV...." Oh, and a freaking Ratchet and Clank movie that nobody asked for in the first place. Just lame.

After this E3 I'm beyond happy to be a Wii U owner and it's the system that will offer the widest range of variety in terms of games through the year. Yeah, it sucks that 3rd Party support for Wii U is almost non-existent at this point but there's still plenty of AWESOME indie games coming and I'm going to support the hell out of each one as they get released.

An people doubt about MK as a system seller? Pfffff. Absolutely awesome news! And this was just on it's first WEEKEND! I honestly tought it will make the million mark in it's first week but accomplish this in less than that is just amazing.

That's it. I'm gonna go to the store I preordered the game and if they doesn't have it yet I will RAGE!

Joke. But seriously tough, I want this game so badly and looks like I will really have to wait until friday :'(

The most efficient industrial design/engineers prize goes to those who work at Nintendo. Huge props to them. So Wii U literally uses the same energy as a light bulb. Damn good to know :)

Eww @ that Xbox One energy consumption though...

AdanVC commented on Reaction: Mario Kart 8 Accused Of Poor Sales P...:

Welcome to the Internet... I can't even. Racism on Mario games? I'm obviously against racism but state that in a Mario game is just ridiculous. I don't care about that Polygon article, they always publish this unproffesional click-bait articles when something related to Nintendo happens. Something like that happened when Nintendo published their E3 2014 plans and like 1 hour later, Polygon published an article titled "Nintendo may be drowning; but it's invested in doing so silently" and of course it caused a lot of buzz and obviously, thousands and thousands of clicks on that article. So yeah... I'm never visiting Polygon website again.

AdanVC commented on Review: Mario Kart 8 (Wii U):

Hell yeah! What a great and informative review. So freaking excited, definitely I'm more excited for MK8 than I was with Super Mario 3D World! But I can't believe there's still 2 whole week left to play this gem :(

AdanVC commented on Nintendo Quashes Rumours Of New Hardware At E3...:

I'm glad this rumors were quashed. Those guys at IGN sometimes says no-sense stuff on their podcasts just to get some more clicks and listeners... Either way, I'm extreeeeemely excited to see what Nintendo will show at E3 :)

AdanVC commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's E3 Plans Are Full of...:

Good read. Definitely this plans announced for Nintendo at E3 are looking way more exciting than last year's E3 Nintendo Direct. Their latest broadcasts have been damn good and a true improvement over 2013's broadcasts so this keeps me genuinely hyped. That Smash Bros tournament and demo on Best Buy is an excellent idea.

AMAZINGGGGGGGG can't think of anything else. I'm officially more excited for this than I was with Super Mario 3D World and trust me, at that time I was suuuuuuuuuper excited already. 1 FREAKING MONTH LEFT UGHH.

AdanVC commented on Nintendo Download: 24th April (North America):

Why Yoshi's Island for GBA and not for SNES? I prefer the SNES version because it has smoother framerate and waaaay better sound effects/music because of the higher quality chip sound the SNES had. Sigh. Sometimes Nintendo truly doesn't make any sense with their game releases... Oh well, NES Remix 2 for me :)

AdanVC commented on Nintendo Is Shutting Down Its Taiwan Subsidiary:

I just hope this doesn't become another Nintendo is doomed trend of the week because (unfortunately) we've seen many different gaming companies doing the same with their studios/subsidaries lately, specially with Sony even if they are enjoying good PS4 sales. Gaming industry as a whole is in a not so healthy position right now and it affects everyone, not just Nintendo even if it's the company who is suffering the most right now. Best wishes to all of those who lost their job : /

AdanVC commented on Miiverse Update Imposes Restrictions on Postin...:

This is good especially when Sakurai posts the Pic of the Day on the Smash Bros. Community. However... I think Miiverse is already very, very strict on pretty much everything now :S. With this 3 minute restriction per comment is gonna be difficult when you are trying to get help when you're stuck in a game and you would easily lost your patience because of this. Oh well...

AdanVC commented on NPD Results Bring Solid 3DS Numbers as Wii U S...:

Incredible (in a bad way) that Wii continues selling. I'm sure that from those 28,000 new Wii customers, like, 20,000 of them were confusing Wii with Wii U and they decided to go for Wii because it was "cheaper". Nintendo needs to kill Wii completely. It's just hurting them rather than help them. As much as I love my Wii U, I honestly expect lower numbers for the console considering it didn't have any notable game releases like PS4 with inFAMOUS or Xbone with Titanfail. 3DS has a pretty sweet summer line-up already thanks to Smash and Wii U thanks to Mario Kart 8... let's just FREAKING HOPE we don't have to wait another 4 months till the next big release after MK8 >:(

AdanVC commented on First Impressions: Tomodachi Life:

Wario Ware creators made this as well?? SOLD. I honestly think this game looks funnier than Animal Crossing New Leaf. I can imagine the amount of screenshots of those random/wacky moments on sites like tumblr and twitter. It's going to be so much fun!

AdanVC commented on Tomodachi Life is Big on Character, But Modest...:

This is actually good news. That big size means the game would have endless activities, content and random stuff that surely would keep us busy for months! I wans't so interested in this game but after that CRAZY FUN Nintendo Direct last thursday now It's a day one purchase from me, haha.

AdanVC commented on Super Mario 3D World Double Disc Soundtrack Ar...:

Now more than ever I'm so mad for three things:

1.- I've been wishing to own this Soundtrack since the first second it was announced on Japan.
2.- It's finally announced to be released outside of Japan BUT ONLY for Europe and Australia (Like WTF, Nintendo of America? REGGIE!? First you add a red box to Mario Kart 8 without the awesome Limited Edition Blue Shell figurine and now this!?)
3.- Even if it's released in America I would not have the chance to get it because I live in freaking Mexico!!!

Ughhh :'(

AdanVC commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

It's been a very slow year in terms of Nintendo Direct broadcasts. The thing is, even without ND's, Nintendo has managed to create a bit of momentum lately with previews offered to the press with games such as Mario Golf and more epic with Mario Kart 8. The lineup of GBA games on VC, and now with this surprising Smash Bros Direct. This clearly shows that Nintendo has been doing things differently lately compared to last year and I believe it's been working great because after those MK8 previews, the hype for this game now is insane and it's great to think it reached those hype levels without the need of a Nintendo Direct and that's a really good sign.

April is going to be an interesting month considering a year ago is when it was announced that Nintendo would not held a Press Conference at E3 in 2013. So I just REALLY hope they don't repeat that for this year's E3. That Nintendo Direct was excellent but doesn't bring the attention of the mass media as Press Conferences do. Plus, since this would be the E3 on wich the new Zelda game will be revealed what a better opportunity than showing it in a Press Conference so we can see the epic reactions of public.

Wohoo! lot's of Nintendo goodness this week. GBA games, MK8 previews with epic trailers and now Smash Bros dedicated Direct! We can expect a newcomer, info about different game modes, ONLINE MULTIPLAYER and a damn release date! It's gonna be a loooooong weekend, guys.

AdanVC commented on 3DS Enjoys a Major Hardware Boost in Japan as ...:

Great week for Nintendo hardware, even Wii U had a bump no matter if i t doesn't had a retail release this week. This clearly shows that Wii U's problem is not on the console itself (The name, the lack of games, the low tech specs compared to PS4/Xbone, etc.) it's just that people when they can afford it, they go for it (and the decreasing interest on home consoles overall unfortunately, just look at PS4 numbers this week for example.) Let's just start imagine the numbers once Mario Kart 8 hits!

"Play it on the Gamepad is the message" So that means it would look blurry and bad on the TV? Let's hope not... But either way, doesn't matter since I've always play VC games on the Gamepad just to imagine I'm playing on a huge GBA haha.

Excellent launch lineup of GBA games! I would download all of them!

Don't worry guys. While everyone would be busy playing Watch_Dogs on May 27th. All of us would be busy playing MARIO KART 8 three days later :). The thing is, I'm still excited for Watch_Dogs and I'm glad Ubisoft put the Wii U (and even the Nintendo eShop logo) at the end of the trailer. Day one purchase from me for whenever is released on Wii U :)

DKC: Tropical Freeze dropping out of top 40, Wii U doesn't even had MGS V: GZ... and there's still 2 months left for Mario Kart 8 and the only worthy release in the meantime is NES Remix 2. Hahaha, wow... Good for Yoshi's New Island tough :)

AdanVC commented on Latest Assassin's Creed Announcement Continues...:

At this pace, the only holiday game it would be released during holidays for Wii U is Smash Bros, and that if it doesn't get delayed till 2015 and we get NES Remix 3 instead.... We all know that Nintendo consoles are to play Nintendo games, not for 3rd Party stuff, but this is getting ridiculous! I enjoyed AC: IV so much! It was a great improvement over AC: III! Waiting 3 or 4 months between 1st party titles and no worthy releases (meaning 3rd party stuff) in between is just not acceptable to me anymore. Just the fact that we don't even have the latest Metal Gear Solid game is a serious concern that not even their closest Nintendo Japanese partners care on bringing their games on Wii U. Like if Snake in Smash never happened!!! Woah, this is bad :'(. Let's see how it goes with MK8...

AdanVC commented on Nintendo's Expensive New Development Building ...:

Nice and efficient looking building, I like it. They have to go with this type of architecture maybe because it's located in an industrial area of Kyoto where fancy building constructions are not allowed, also because earthquakes... they need to be strong enough to support them. Just imagine going to work every day there. All the magic that has to occur on the inside. It must be a pain in the a** tough, considering how hard is to get to work for Nintendo, especially in Japan if you want to be a developer.
