AshFoxX commented on North American Release Date Confirmed for Duck...:

Wonder how they are going to pull this off since the wii zapper (and wiimote of course) does not work the same as the NES zapper does. The placement of a 'hit' will depend solely on where the gun is pointed in relation to the wii sensor bar as opposed to reacting to the flashing sprites. Maybe they will give us a crosshair, but then that will make it too easy.

I'll probably just dust off my NES and play that instead, I don't see this going well. Although, I would absolutely love to see Duck Hunt and friends (wild gunman, barker bill, etc.) return in an e-shop or possibly even retail package of new games that take advantage of the wii zapper.

AshFoxX commented on Miyamoto Talks Up Star Fox Wii U's "Fun And Un...:

Honestly with Star Fox, the less story the better. The best Star Fox games in the series had barely any story beyond "Andross is bad, kick his butt!". Then they added a dying dinosaur planet and... and Aparoid queens and... ugh... Keep it simple. After all, Mario games would be super weird if they started adding epic 'star warsian' (is that a word? no...) story-lines to them.

AshFoxX commented on Eternal Darkness Trademark Renewal Increases H...:

As much time has passed, a remaster would be a great idea, but I still hope for a glint of hope that I can play 'Shadow of the Eternals' or 'Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Redemption' some day.

I just wish Ninty would stop sitting on these great IP's and get some 2nd party dev to put them together.

AshFoxX commented on Sony Pictures Is In Negotiations With Nintendo...:

Animated Nintendo films are the obvious answer. Mario will make a good 'foot in the door' movie actually, and I will sell my soul for an animated Star Fox epic. I have been dreaming of that for nearly 20 years. Plus, Mario was supposed to be in Wreck it Ralph, but they didn't know where to put him even though Sonic shows up like three times.

AshFoxX commented on Sega Looking To Turn Streets Of Rage, Shinobi,...:

I just want Streets of rage 4 and I will take back anything I ever said about Sonic lately... Seriously. Even if it blows. I just want it already.

On topic, if Sega were really serious about making movies/tv shows based on IP, I think Shenmue would be a pretty good movie, especially if they manage to wrap up the story. As for a TV show, I want to see a Burning Rangers animated series. I'd rather PLAY them, but if were going to throw IP at movie studios, might as well be these.

AshFoxX commented on Video: Use Your amibo Figures Without Removing...:

I still have my boxes to store my amiibo figures, but they aren't much for looks anymore since I had to tear through the back to get to them. I still don't know if I would have used this technique had I known about it since they actually look arguably a bit better without the box. I'm even considering just buying second sets just to put on display, but my collectors mentality seems to have allowed me to be smarter with my money. lol!

AshFoxX commented on The Father Of Video Games Ralph H. Baer Passes...:

If I hadn't read this hours ago on another site I'd be bursting into tears. I have shown my appreciation for Ralph Baer and his contributions to my favorite hobby already but theres not enough love I can throw at him from my spectrum. So as a fat man who made clerks likes to say, "Big Bucket of Win."
Rest in peace Mr. Baer, I will play a marathon session of Simon to commemorate you tonight.

AshFoxX commented on Sonic Boom is Doing Pretty Well!:

I actually really enjoyed the show. It reminds me of a more coherent version of the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog show that I grew up with. I even like newcomer Styx. She makes me chuckle a lot.

AshFoxX commented on PDP GameCube-Style Wired Fight Pads for Donkey...:

I just wanted to say I used my 3DS as a controller at my buddies house yesterday, and I managed to sell about two more copies to my 3DS laden friends who thought the idea was so cool. I just wish it was a little bit less intrusive about bringing in your custom characters.

AshFoxX commented on Parent Trap: amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

"I can see kids getting their amiibo and levelling up so its super super super hard. So they are 12 years old and they're like I've had my Mario for 5 years, you can't touch this Mario — he's the king of Marios. Yes, I like that.”

Too bad the level cap is 50 and if they do use amiibo in the same capacity as SMash bros., you will have to overwrite your Smash progress. I love my amiibo figures, but they mostly just sit on my shelf at the moment.

AshFoxX commented on Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry Almost Made Our D...:

It's unfortunate that a game with this much blood sweat and tears had to be cancelled, but sometimes being overly ambitious is not a good thing. Maybe it was cancelled for the better. Just look at Duke Nukem Forever. I'd have rather that game remained a fever dream than the soul crushing disappointment it became.

I'm surprised how much of this I had instinctively picked up over the years, so even though it's nothing new to me, i'm sure it will be great help to some newcomers to the series, and that is always a good thing :)

AshFoxX commented on EA Cancelled Wii U SimCity Title Before The Fo...:

I would get it if it was a polished version of the city building game that you could play in Playstation Home. That game had a lot of good ideas but the engine for PSHome was so crap that it was pretty clunky. You are the mayor of a new town and you build your town like sim city with parks, water towers, fire departments, housing, roads, etc, but you also get the ability to run around your town like GTA, and you help out the fire department, police force, and even the alien defense force to keep your city safe and profitable.

It was a cool idea, and I'd get a lot of playtime out of it if it were done better.

AshFoxX commented on Blinking Light Win Means You'll Never Have To ...:

I fixed the blinking light on my NES by clipping some connections from a chip on the board that bypasses the NES's lockout protocol. I forget which chip it is, but there have been tutorials on doing this fix on the web for years.

Before then I would have to push the cart in just enough to where it would dump down with the top of the cartridge touching the front of the console. It usually worked that way.

AshFoxX commented on Kickstarter Project Wants to Turn Your Game Bo...:

IMHO it doesn't matter how well they can scale up the graphics to a television, these games always look better and feel better on a handheld screen. This is why I refuse to buy GBA VC games on Wii U. I just want to play Golden Sun in the bathroom, dang it!

AshFoxX commented on Let's Summarise the Remaining eShop Deals on W...:

I'd consider picking up darksiders 2... If nintendo had thought ahead about digital downloads and put a realistically sized drive in the Wii U, or at the very least allow me to upgrade the internal drive like I could with the PS3.

I know you can connect an external drive, but that takes up USB space, doesn't load as fast or reliably depending on which drive you use, and it looks awful. I'd rather spend a little extra time swapping internal drives and then forgetting about it.

Oh my lord, I really need to start watching Jimmy Fallon. I never had anything against him, I just don't normally tune in to 'tonight show' type programs... Actually I don't watch much TV that's not on my Hulu queue anymore.

AshFoxX commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

I think I am done with holding out for hope. They hyped these games like they would be the next Sonic 2. They raised everyone's expectations and hopes that this would be a really good game. This die-hard Sonic fan has given up. At the very least, the show actually reminds me of when I used to watch the Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog when I was a kid. (Not the good one, the goofy one.) It's pretty stupid and pointless, but it's not unwatchable.

I. WANT. THAT. GOGGLE. PIKACHU!

Also, that villager is genuinely awesome. I could never paint my amiibo though, I already feel bad that I took mine out of the cases so I could use them. I'm actually considering purchasing doubles just for display. (plus ten years from now these will be sought after I imagine.)

@Stu13
GameStop: I beg your pardon?
Stu13: Your ruse, your cunning attempt to trick me.
GS: I was only pointing out that you weren't paying any attention to what I was saying.
S13: And I hope it feels good.
GS: You hope what feels good?
S13: I hope it feels so good to be right. There's nothing more exhilarating than pointing out the shortcomings of others, is there?
GS: Well, this is the last time I rent here.
S13: You'll be missed.
GS: Screw you!
S13: Hey! You're not allowed to rent here anymore!
AshFoxX: Yeah!

AshFoxX commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

I feel conflicted. I do want to buy this game to show Wii U support but after deciding I would wait until I got a PS4 to pick up GTAV, I'd be better off waiting for this game too. Only reason I really care is because I REALLY want BG&E2 to be let out of the attic, but I guess I'd probably have Nintendo's QoL Virtual Reality video game console by then... And I'd still not be able to play it on Nintendo.

AshFoxX commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

I have about 10 games for my 3DS that I enjoy on an every day basis. Off the top of my head, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Star Fox 64 3D, Tomodachi Life, Pilotwings Resort, Pokemon Y, not to mention all of the numerous DS and Game Boy VC games that I play, and I have plenty more on my to-buy list such as Smash 3DS, Fantasy Life and Bravely Default.

The only games the PS Vita has that I am even remotely interested in are all ports of games I can get elsewhere, like Earth Defense Force 2017, Persona 4 Gold, Borderlands 2 and the Sly Cooper games (which I already have on PS3 so moot point.)

The PS Vita is certainly better than the PSP, but the 3DS is still king as far as traditional handheld consoles are concerned. I have not seen ONE person playing a Vita in public, it's always either a smart phone or a 3DS. Everyone will just wait until the system dies next year and winds up in bargain bins, then hack them to play emulators and PS1 games anyway.

I will follow Nintendo to the ends of the earth. While I doubt we will ever see the glory days of the NES dominating the entire market and the intense console wars between SNES and Genesis/MD, Nintendo has still stood firm on great and exciting gaming experiences over pretty graphics and processor speeds.
