bofis commented on Steel Empire Blasting A Path To The North Amer...:

SO EXPENSIVE for a remake of a Genesis game...especially compared with the M2 Sega 3D titles (of which I'm still waiting for OutRun to exist in the US). I'm tempted by this game, but I'll wait for a price drop or sale. Perhaps I'll use this time to try out Yumi since everyone seems to love that and now it's slightly cheaper at least



bofis commented on NES30 GamePad Brings Old School Control To iOS...:

@ueI If it acts as a WiiMote I do not see why not, older, even non-motion-plus WiiMotes work fine with the WiiU, it just won't do any motion or pointing, but it would work perfectly for VC and anything that needs a sideways WiiMote I suspect.



bofis commented on Ubisoft Confirms Exclusive 3DS Mode for Tetris...:

I just hope this is remotely good enough to actually replace Tetris DS, which I carry with me to play on my 3DS to this day. The vs. mode in Tetris Axis was a JOKE and far too easy compared to even Lvl 4 CPU in Tetris DS



bofis commented on Guide: All You Need to Know on Mario Kart 8 Ch...:

And no recommendations for bikes? Or any mention of how only a few of the bikes can inside-drift, while the others drift more like karts? Also, I disagree that Yoshi isn't good at anything and your assessment that heavyweights dominate, which is really not always the case either.



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

The Sega 3D Classics games are some of the best Virtual Console titles available to date and we are STILL waiting for OutRun and a few others to even make it to the US. It would have been nice to have Sega games on WiiU, but at least bring over the ones they made for Japan 3DS!!!



bofis commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

They should merge ALL purchases from the same Nintendo ID and let you download or play games on any platform where that title is available, not just as a single-game promotion when you buy the 3DS one, though this is still a welcome idea and I hope it gives us a taste of the future.



bofis commented on Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary Editi...:

It's fairly silly to not allow you to use WiiMotes, Pro Controller, Classic Controller, or the GamePad for controls, especially if you're playing it up on the TV. I don't care about utilizing the touch screen as much as allowing for control options.



bofis commented on Review: Another World - 20th Anniversary Editi...:

This is a no start without 3D graphics, will be picking it up on the WiiU I guess...thought wouldn't it be awesome if purchases were linked to NintendoIDs and you could download any purchased title on either available system? ;-)



bofis commented on Exclusive: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse Is A...:

Hmm, it would be great if Nintendo's eShop provided cross-buying, but I think I'll stick to the 3DS version for the stereoscopic graphics and to have the complete trilogy on my 3DS (at least until the sequel comes to WiiU)



bofis commented on Russian Phenomenon Tetris Celebrates Its 30th ...:

Tetris is my single top Desert Island game, and Tetris DS would be my chosen version, as it remains the best Tetris to date. It is sad that the upcoming console Tetris is not being released for WiiU, I hope Ubisoft reconsiders and puts it on the eShop!!!



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

Wooo! Even without the Gamepad screen in multiplayer (though having the radar is nice) or battle arenas, I cannot wait for this game! Being able to upload clips to YouTube is an excellent feature I hope more titles support in the future.



bofis commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Been keeping an eye on Hover: Revolt Of Gamers to see if they reach the WiiU goal as I don't want to donate unless it's coming to WiiU. Whereas I already backed Red Goddess and Pip since they included WiiU in the core goal.



bofis commented on Review: Stick It To The Man (Wii U eShop):

I don't see why 5 hours is a negative...not all of us have time for every single enjoyable game we play to take 111 hours like Pokemon or something. Child of Light is intimidating in it's length considering I'm still powering through Bravely Default!



bofis commented on Mario Kart 8 Club Nintendo Promotion Offers a ...:

@ikki5 I'd imagine the download code will have no attachment to your account and could be sold if someone else wanted it. That or you could convert one of your physical purchases to a virtual one for some reason. I was trying to decide between Sonic Lost World and Wii Party U (as I don't have either), but I guess this means the choice has been made for me.



bofis commented on Review: NES Remix 2 (Wii U eShop):

I still haven't even unlocked all of the games from NES Remix 1, but will gladly buy this one too. Just wish it was available as DLC to the first game so I could save an icon on my WiiU screen!



bofis commented on Review: F-Zero Maximum Velocity (Wii U eShop /...:

I have this on my 3DS already, and feel like the SNES F-Zero I already have on WiiU VC is a better game overall. Though, with a little Dolphin Emulation magic, I was playing the Gamecube F-Zero in HD and it was beautiful to behold and still my favorite F-Zero title.



bofis commented on Sea Battle Will Bring Battleships to DSiWare:

I would totally pick this up for myself and my wife if only there was a way to only buy 200 points on the DSi Shop or to gift it to her. I don't feel like sinking another 1000 points into her DSi account just for this :-/



bofis commented on You Can Now Pre-Order eShop Games Via Nintendo...:

This seems like a baby step that isn't nearly big enough. Why not let you buy the title, link that purchase with your eshop account, and then, when it's released, be able to just go into the eshop and download it without a code?
