bofis commented on The Smart Boy Is Real, Will Let You Play Origi...:

Would be neat, but I feel like it's kinda huge, especially for anyone with a nice, small Android phone, like the Sony Z3 Compact ;-) That and of course, VC sorta makes anything like this slightly less special



bofis commented on Review: WarioWare Twisted! (GBA):

I was hoping this review was for some upcoming VC release on WiiU, but hopefully that happens since the gamepad seems perfect for Twisted...better than my GBA SP was back in the day even



bofis commented on Feature: Nintendo Wins at Its Own Game - A Rev...:

I had a lot of fun watching this, but I felt the production values could have been why weren't players, even in Mario Kart or Smash, listed by their actual names instead of "Player 1?" It can't take that long to type in names, or even overlay them for our benefit, besides on the overworld chart showing progress throughout the tournament.



bofis commented on Review: FullBlast (Wii U eShop):

It almost seems like a shame not to also release this on 3DS with stereoscopic graphics...though having 2 player is great for WiiU, may have to pick this up once my discounted eshop cards come from Best Buy...



bofis commented on The Days Are Numbered For The Nintendo Video 3...:

WAIT, that's horrible! I watch Nintendo Videos on my 3DS on the subway, when I have no wifi and it's fun that there is just a rotating selection of videos on there, automatically, each day or week. If I have to visit the eshop, and stream or download videos, I'll never use it again unfortunately. The entire appeal of the Nintendo Video app was that when I sat down, I might have a few cute lil videos to watch while settling into my commute. It was a very smart idea since they have to assume most people are playing their 3DS ON THE GO and may or may not have internet...



bofis commented on Review: Adventures of Pip (Wii U eShop):

I'm excited this is launching concurrently on WiiU, will be using my Kickstarter code tonight! This does beat many of my previous Kickstarters that have yet to deliver on the WiiU...



bofis commented on Super Mario Galaxy Out Now on the Wii U eShop ...:

@Charlosa on modern computers you can emulate N64-Wii games and set the native resolution of the game engine to be 1080p so basically the game is being rendered at that resolution in the video card, rather than the original 480p being upscalled after the fact by the WiiU and blown up for your TV.

Here is a 1080p screenshot of Mario Galaxy for example:

Or watch this:

I will not be supporting the WiiU N64 eshop titles until they fix the emulator to render games in HD before outputting, same goes for DS titles, it's just silly because the games could look WAY better with a simple emulator setting...



bofis commented on MouseCraft Will Hope to Make Some Cheese on th...:

I wish developers would have committed to bringing games to WiiU earlier as I already bought this game on Steam, but feel like having Gamepad controls with the touch screen might make it better and would have held off...



bofis commented on Monochroma For Wii U Scrapped Due To Technical...:

I had Kickstarted this, but they gave me a DRM-free and Steam copy for PC so I've been able to play it there at least and this is one of the risks with Kickstarter, I'm glad they finished the game and hope they sell well.



bofis commented on Nintendo Download: 14th May (North America):

After how awesome 3D Life Force II and all the other Sega 3D games have been I'm totally down for trying 3D Thunder Blade when I get home from work tonight and can buy it. Wish Nintendo would update the eshop at midnight EST so I could buy and download games the night before though...



bofis commented on Natsume Suggests That Nintendo's Moving Away F...:

Would be nice if all the SNES titles on WiiVC would at least come over to WiiU and also as for new titles, I would MUCH rather play an SNES original than the GBA remake that they're trying to pawn off on us.
