bbliksteen8 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

So I am excited for the Wii games I don't own... the ones I do have (like Prime Trilogy) I won't bother getting.

For those complaining about N64 not being on Wii U VC yet this may be the solution. Sure it wouldn't be the best solution but if, like these wii games, it launches the N64 wii VC game from the Wii U menu that is a start. All the games would have gamepad screen and controller support. They would not have the state save function that other Wii VC games have but that is less useful on N64 games than SNES or NES games. Also it will be able to access the save files if you own the game already. It would probably be a pipe dream for Nintendo to offer the game for free if you own it in Wii mode (although I think that would be a fair solution since it would only add gamepad-as-classic controller support) but they would certainly offer a discount, a la NES ($1) and SNES ($1.50) VC games, if you own the N64 game in Wii mode already. Following the pattern then N64 games would be $10 with a discount to $2 if you already own it in Wii mode.

I do still believe that GC games will come and I believe the GC controller adapter is the solution there. I do not think those games will be played with any other type controller which was the hold up. Now that they have a control solution they have to port the games individually as they always have. The pricing model suggests they would be $15.



bbliksteen8 commented on Rumour: Toys "R" Us Cancelling amiibo Orders, ...:

My Capt. Falcon got canceled... Toys R Us had that 3 for $30 dollar sale on Amiibo preorders so I'm sure they had massive preorder amounts and that certainly didn't help the situation. What I do know is after getting my Link and Samus I am not sure I am going to dip in for more. I don't have the collecting bug and I am having fun with the charecters I have now



bbliksteen8 commented on Video: Shigeru Miyamoto Outlines Online Sharin...:

@Tainy Sorry I honestly don't see how Bill's translation can be interpreted to mean anything but what I said. In context, talking about segmented worlds with areas, he says they tried to make a TO sized world as one area on the game. But as you say this may be a moot point because the real meaning could be something else. Having done translation between spanish and english, even between such similar languages, so much gets lost.



bbliksteen8 commented on Video: Shigeru Miyamoto Outlines Online Sharin...:

@bro2dragons The article didn't explain it the way Miyamoto and Bill do. This is the transcript:

"Now, with the hardware capabilities of Wii U, we first started by saying if we can take an entire world the size of the world from Twilight Princess, and make that the size of one of the areas in the game."

@mizumaru has it right. This will be a massive world if it has 4 or 5 areas the size of Twilight Princess Hyrule



bbliksteen8 commented on Review: Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue (Wii U):

So it sounds like this is missing everything that made the first Disney Planes game "decent". That game did not follow any movie script, it has 4 modes ("Story" with 5 missions per charecter, Races, Balloon Pop, and Free Fly)has 11 or 12 different charecters that can be used and anytime (though I believe all their physics and abilities are the same) in about 8 different locations. It isn't great (or even good) but with a 3 year old who loves Planes it is decent to play with him. Unfortunatly this review removes any hope that this would follow a similar formula and improve upon the first



bbliksteen8 commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

had a Wii but no GC (well obviously a Wii was backwards compatible but as a late Wii adopter it was hard to clear the Wii backlog and do GC games too) and seeing as Wii U is backwards compatible I'd rather see GC games. So...
Luigi's Mansion (the idea of doing a 2 pack remaster with Dark Moon is interesting)
Super Mario Sunshine
FZero GX
Eternal Darkness (super unique game)
Fire Emblem: Path of Radience



bbliksteen8 commented on Hardware Classics: Sega Master System:

Didn't have an SMS but I had a Genesis and Game Gear and litterally knew no one with a SNES. All of my friends had Genesis and we all had the power base converter and master gear converter so we would find SMS games at flea markets and garage sales and trade them around. Wonder Boy III is my favorite SMS game



bbliksteen8 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

UGH! I AM SO DISAPPOINTED... because I deliberately held my coins back and didn't achieve Platinum status! The last two years I hit platinum and took the Gold level games anyway (LoZ:MM & LoZ:LA). I would have chosen Game & Wario or NES Remix or Dillion's. Instead I'll probably get Zelda 2 (or maybe Mario Land 2). But I love this. I have little interest in merch.



bbliksteen8 commented on It Doesn't Look Like We'll Be Seing Sega Games...:

With all the Sonic collections out there, the Wii VC and the Ultimate Collection (which I own) there is little incentive to move the SMS/MD games over. If the GBA games sell well I can only imagine that the sonic advance games will get ported at some point. They were good games



bbliksteen8 commented on Super Smash Bros. Online Code of Conduct to La...:

I think some people are overreacting to this. They aren't going to ban you for being idle for 10 seconds or for targeting the leader in a match to catch up. They are trying to prevent people from beating up on the idle controller sitting next to them or from going 3 on 1 for a whole match (which seemed to happen to me every time on brawl so I stopped going online).



bbliksteen8 commented on Poll: Are You in the DLC Brigade?:

It all depends on the game. I would absolutely buy character/track packs for Kart, and character/stage packs for Smash. I would buy a more expensive master quest type remix of a Zelda game or a smaller single dungeon add on the gives a unique and useful item, like Gerudo Training grounds (more useful item though) and color dungeon. Both of these things would give replay value.



bbliksteen8 commented on Interview: Zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma Talks DL...:

I never had WW and seeing how its $45 used on amazon right now the HD remake is perfect for me. Those of you dissing DLC, if big N put out a "master quest" (remix the dungeons, mirror the world, move around overworld collectibles (I know that last one isn't actually in OoT MC but could be done easily)) as DLC for every Zelda game would you not buy it? As for controls I absolutely expect all control options to be used (motionPlus, Gamepad, and Pro Controller)



bbliksteen8 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Step Up for the...:

It would be fun to see nintendo use the 3ds and wiiU eShops in connection with the new SSB dojo. A charecter announcement could be accompanied with a coinciding release of a VC, retail (eg Wind Waker for Toon Link), or eShop original game (FZero, Ice Climbers, ROB could be some candidates) could hype SSB and the eShop. Get people on the eShop regularly and good things will happen.



bbliksteen8 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U Virtual Console Has S...:

They would have been smart to launch Wii U VC with Luigi's Mansion to
1. Generate excitement from gamecube games
2. Further accentuate the "Year of Luigi"

A slow constant release of GC and GBA games would create a level of excitement. Add to that the small surprises of NES, SNES, Master Sys, etc that were not on the Wii and you have a base to get people continually excited
