GameStop sells Star Fox: Command pre-owned for $5, and that includes the multiplayer, as well as the luxury of portability. Now why on earth would I buy a stripped-down version on the Wii U for double the price?!

@Iggly I only came close to beating Partners in Time, and just picked up Dream Team a few days ago. I'm definitely enjoying all the familiar faces that pop up every now and then.
Hopefully Bowser's Inside Story comes soon; I never got deep into that one.

allav866 commented on Animal Crossing: amiibo Festival Is Basically ...:

I was most looking forward to Animal Crossing U; the timing couldn't be better, y'know? I saw Isabelle pop up out of the ? Block and was instantly excited, and then they started talking about the lame home designer. I felt a bit disappointed, but then they showed Wii U footage for an Animal Crossing game! Isabelle walked out of the train station, and I was really getting hyped, and then I saw weird tiles on the ground. My reaction was as follows:
"What are tho-- No... NO..."
Well, at least we have a Wii U Animal Crossing. I just wish it wasn't Monopoly. Home Designer doesn't look so lame anymore...

allav866 commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Slashing Its Way to 3DS:

I'll definitely get this, but I really hope other Zelda characters will be added as DLC, like Groose or Nabooru. On that note, I hope owners of the Wii U version can transfer the DLC to the 3DS version.

allav866 commented on Nintendo Announces a Special Video Presentatio...:

"Hello! I'm Masahiro Sakurai, director of Super Smash Bros. Today, after this presentation, you'll be able to purchase Lucas from Mother 3, but I believe there are many of you who may not quite know exactly who he is, outside of Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Well, I'd like to give you an opportunity to become acquainted with this character, so later today, Mother 3 will be available, for the first time ever, in all regions on the Nintendo eShop for Wii U. We at Nintendo hope you'll enjoy playing as Lucas in Super Smash Bros., as well as in Mother 3."
A guy can dream, right?

I deleted it when they stopped uploading funny 3D videos and started putting up crappy 2D videos like "Baman and Piderman."
It's a shame we can't just download the videos. I'd like to keep the Kid Icarus and Kirby videos wherever I go.
Edit: Just found out the Kid Icarus and Kirby videos aren't even on the eShop.

I don't quite understand why the YouTube feature is necessary; most people in the Sketch Pad community upload WIP shots to Miiverse. I guess I'm more confused as to why a painting program lets you upload your artistic progress when Nintendo's popular fighting game doesn't let you upload your favorite replays.

I could imagine someone making a fortune customizing people's amiibo figures. Pay a sizable fee, send your Mii Fighter amiibo, and a picture of your Mii, and he replaces the head and, if necessary, paints over the shirt to match your Mii's.

@Moon Don't knock until you've tried each one. What you see as a small difference feels like a drastic change. Even if a Pushmo is somehow recreated into a Crashmo, you have to look at it with different rules in mind. Stretchmo is more similar to Pushmo than Crashmo, but the fact that you can stretch the sides out adds a new layer of depth to the mechanics of the original game.

allav866 commented on Iwata Reveals a Bit More Information on Ninten...:

@SHULZ21 @seb5049 In my head it wouldn't make much sense it it were a Wii U successor, since the Wii U hasn't been available that long, and is starting to see some success. The 3DS will have been out for 5 years by the time the NX is announced, possibly 6 by the time it releases. It seems more likely to me that the NX will replace the handheld.

allav866 commented on Nintendo's E3 Focus to Reportedly be on Wii U ...:

(gasp) No freaking way! It's not like Iwata told us that the NX would be revealed in 2016 to begin with! On a less sarcastic note, I don't think Nintendo's first iOS software (or any iOS software) is worthy of an E3 appearance, so much as a Nintendo Direct appearance. I kinda figured their main focus would be more on the Wii U and 3DS games, and maybe their new loyalty program.

allav866 commented on Iwata Reveals a Bit More Information on Ninten...:

@seb5049 Nobody at any point said the NX was a home console. I'm fairly certain the NX is going to be a handheld to replace the 3DS. That said, there's nothing too gimmicky about the DS systems; the second screen was more revolutionary than it was on the Wii U, and the 3D definitely helps in 3D platformers. It will be interesting to see where Nintendo goes from the 3DS, though.

allav866 commented on Playtonic's Project Ukulele Becomes Yooka-Layl...:

Now that I think about it, we haven't heard anything about Lobodestroyo or A Hat in Time in a while. I remember reading that Lobodestroyo was set for a late 2014/early 2015 release, and Hat in Time recently got a Beta release. This is the time for the developers of said games to speak up and remind people that Playtonic isn't the only one making a 3D platformer.

allav866 commented on Playtonic's Project Ukulele Becomes Yooka-Layl...:

I love the name already, but the design leaves much to be desired compared to Banjo and Kazooie. Banjo wore yellow shorts, a claw necklace and a backpack, which Kazooie also wore most of the time. xD
I will say that a range of abilities come to mind for our chameleon and bat duo. Yooka could camouflage himself for similar purposes to Chunky's "Gorilla Gone" ability in DK64, and Laylee could screech in dark areas to see the surrounding area similar to the Echo Visor in Metroid Prime 2.
I'm already excited to see more of what these two can do! Let's hope putting clothes on is one of them!

allav866 commented on Talking Point: Mario Maker Can Be A Game Chang...:

I'm really excited for Mario Maker! It certainly doesn't look like the $15 dollar editor it did at E3 last year. I'm gonna guess that the finished product will be $30-$40, and for how much they've added to it, that seems like a reasonable amount.

allav866 commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

Could've been a better comparison video. Needs items and coins turned off, and for the driver to practice the course in 200cc until he completes it without going off the track. But I guess if the bare minimum of what this video was supposed to do was demonstrate that 200cc is faster than the other classes, then it at least accomplished that much, but we still don't have a clear idea of how much faster it actually is.

Hey, I'll buy a New 3DS for this. But whether a remake is coming to Wii U, New 3DS, or even if it's coming at all, one thing is certain; it can't be the Wii version, where everything was mirrored just to make Link right-handed! I'll only buy it if it's a port of the GameCube version!

allav866 commented on Streets Of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes And Sonic Th...:

FINALLY! I skipped the 16-bit era entirely (no SNES or SEGA), but whenever my older brother and I went to our dad's place, we'd play Sonic 2, and I'd play as Tails, since I wasn't as good at video games. So I might not have any nostalgia for a lot of other SEGA Genesis games, the Sonic games, particularly Sonic 2, will always be something I fondly remember!
I do hope M2 will add some way to play the game in 2P mode, as well as allow you to play as Knuckles, as if the Sonic 2 cartridge were connected to the Sonic & Knuckles cartridge.

Even if the retail copy came with Plague of Shadows, it wouldn't justify the $30 price tag (especially since it's free DLC anyway...). Shovel Knight is the reason I like Yacht Club Games, but this is some stupid crap they're trying to pull!

Still can't see why the Wii U isn't a suitable system for an F-Zero racing game. Miyamoto's developed some of the greatest games of all time, but his excuse for why we haven't had an F-Zero game in so long is absolute crap.

In the harsh light of modern opinion however, some of the rose-tinted sheen has definitely worn off, and a sense of repetition sets in before too long.
Where was the harsh light of modern opinion in the Super Mario 64 review?
