Weird it's a square and not a ball, but hey, Angry Birds/NightSky are fun, why not? Though it would be nice if they also had some setup for using gamepad controls instead of just touch



bofis commented on Week Three of the eShop Throwback Sale Goes Li...:

Having only ever played the first Metroid Prime on GameCube, I may have to pickup the Trilogy for $10...especially since they feature superior wiimote controls. My biggest issue with FPS games on consoles is that two sticks do not have nearly the control that a mouse and keyboard setup do. I think aiming with the wiimote is about the best you can hope for on a TV



bofis commented on Mobile Hit Badland Is Coming To The Wii U eShop:

As fun as this game was on Android, I'll totally pick it up on WiiU for the better controls. It's far too frustrating to no be able to go backwards or control anything besides up by tapping

If Nintendo was really smart they'd do more runs of rare or limited Amiibos to eliminate that 3rd party market as well. Look how much the less-common Amiibos go for on eBay and all that money Nintendo is leaving on the table.

When I hold my 3DS right now, my left and right pinky fingers rest under the console itself, RIGHT where the power button and cart slots were moved to. This is one of the things I'm upset about with the new designs, as the top-loading slot would never get in the way of your hands or need some piece of metal to make it better.



bofis commented on Shantae And The Pirate's Curse All Set For Fes...:

@Tops Totally loved it on 3DS, and btw, Pirate Mode is unlocked after you beat it once, and means you start the game with all of Risky's pirate weapons from the beginning, rather than finding them in each labyrinth ("Den of Evil" in this game).



bofis commented on Shantae And The Pirate's Curse Delayed Into 20...:

@StarDust4Ever The game we Kickstarted is 1/2 Genie Hero, which is the 4th installment. It's confusing since the Kickstarted ended so long before this game finally came out, but Pirate's Curse has been in development since Risky's Revenge came out and was originally only going to be on 3DS. The WiiU version was added in during the Kickstarter cuz I guess they were having fun with it. Having played almost all of the game on 3DS up to the final boss I'd have to say this might be the best Shantae game yet, and the graphics look great in 3D. I almost enjoy the art style of this game (and Risky's Revenge) better than the 1/2 Genie Hero art, but we'll see.



bofis commented on Review: Tetris Ultimate (3DS):

@Ralizah Agreed, I'd love to hear a more in-depth comparison against TetrisDS, which I still carry with me always and play on my 3DS. How are the Vs. CPU modes? Didn't Marathon used to be until LVL20? Also, shouldn't it only add a line in multiplayer if you clear 2 or more lines, as it adds one-fewer line than what you cleared? Also how is the music, and can you select different backgrounds or tracks as the default?

As for Tetris Axis, that was a huge pile of crap compared to Tetris DS and the only 3DS game I ever bought and then immediately resold...the Vs. CPU was far too easy as I could beat it immediately on the highest level. Whereas in Tetris DS, lvl 4 CPU is a good challenge, and lvl5 is basically impossible unless you get lucky.



bofis commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

I preordered Peach for free along with my WiiU Smash mostly so my wife can have the Mii costume in Mario Kart 8, and then will pickup Yoshi for the same reason. As for using with Smash, I'll have to wait and see what character is my favorite and also for Toon Link and others to come out.



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

I've been looking forward to this for a while and will definitely pick it up, though are there any eshop card Black Friday deals coming up? ;-)



bofis commented on Review: The Swapper (Wii U eShop):

Having already bought this title on PC it would be super nice if there was some sorta cross-buy promotion or even discount for current owners who want it on WiiU instead or for the map ;-)



bofis commented on 8 Player Smash Mode Confirmed For Wii U Super ...:

I really hope they release additional colors and designs of WiiU Pro controllers, that's what I wanna play Smash on and so far only black and white, if I'm getting 8 I'd like them to be different or fun



bofis commented on The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 3DS HOME Th...:

@iphys UGH, I did the same thing! I enjoy the music, and overall theme, but it's super lame that the initial image is NOT the one shown in the preview, and is instead Link merged in the wall. I keep my icons so I don't have to scroll, so I almost never get to see the castle part of the image, which is dumb. I wish they let you customize themes slightly, set different background music, or even change where the scrolling wallpaper begins.



bofis commented on These GameCube-style Mario Bros. Controllers O...:

These are a way better option than the Gamecube controllers with adapter...though I also really like the WiiU Pro Controller and wish they'd release that in other designs/colors besides just black and white!



bofis commented on Curve Studios Outlines Release Details of Four...:

I wish developers had announced games coming to WiiU like this earlier, as I already own most of these on PC and would have totally waited! But I refuse to double-dip as I feel there should be more cross-buy options in general (esp WiiU and 3DS)



bofis commented on Video: New Nintendo 3DS Unboxing And Hands On:

How comfortable is it to hold the new 3DS compared with the old one. I'm especially concerned about the cart slot and power buttons along the bottom edge where I usually rest the system on my pinky fingers :-



bofis commented on Video: Footage Surfaces of Cancelled Wii Star ...:

This looks amazing, I would buy this game tomorrow if it came out in HD on WiiU...the 1:1 lightsaber fighting is what I wanted to exist on Wii the entire time, and the Rogue Squadron levels also look great.



bofis commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

Could you post some comparison shots with this vs. the original, smaller 3DS instead of just the XL? I'm still rocking the original teal 3DS and am concerned over any size increases when moving to this model as I've always liked the compact size of the 3DS/DS Lite which were basically the same small size.

Also, how is the comfort of holding the new system in your hands, especially if you were to rest the bottom of the system on your two pinky fingers, making it easier to press, and hold, L or R such as in Mario Kart? I find that I always grip my 3DS so that my two pinky fingers are resting under the bottom, propping up the device slightly. I fear that the new power button and cart slot will make this less comfortable :-
