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?



bofis commented on Round Table: Let's Talk Endlessly About Mario ...:

Can't the Gamepad screen also display the race map sorta like the lower screen in Mario Kart DS and 7? That would at least be SOMETHING, though not nearly as nice and useful as having second-screen playing in 2-player.



bofis commented on Preview: Mario Kart 8:

I'm upset that my office is closed for the entire week including Memorial Day, but sadly, Mario Kart 8 won't be out until Friday!!! Might have to midnight launch it so I can wake up and play all day Friday at least.

But actually more upsetting is that they did not utilize the gamepad screen for two player, with one player using the gamepad screen, and the second player getting the entire TV, like Sonic Racing did. I didn't even buy Sonic Racing because I've been holding out hope for Mario Kart would be amazing if Nintendo could update and add that feature later, though I greatly doubt it will happen. :-



bofis commented on Review: I Am In The Movie (DSiWare):

Nothing about this makes sense...why are they releasing this on DSi Ware now and not even as a 3DS version that could utilize the 3D cameras to be SLIGHTLY interesting. Not too surprised by the review though.



bofis commented on NES Remix 2:

I loved the first NES Remix, I just really wish Nintendo would consider the second set of games as DLC for the first game for those of us who already have it.



bofis commented on Two Tribes Confirms Permanent Price Drop of it...:

@Buduski The first is more structured with specific puzzle levels, whereas the sequel is much more open world, so they are both good, but in different ways. There's something really great about going through the levels of the first game, whereas the second is a more unique gaming experience.



bofis commented on Talking Point: The Logic Behind Game Boy Advan...:

the VC system is a disaster until they introduce cross-buying between WiiU and 3DS VC, in that I'm never buying the same game on both systems at this point, and would be way more likely to buy more games if I then got them on each of my systems....



bofis commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I'm still picking it up as I enjoyed Yoshi's Story even, and NO ONE liked that game. It's a shame they keep using gyroscope controls in 3DS games though since then you basically have to turn off the 3D or it'll look awful as you're tilting around.



bofis commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

I totally appreciate what he did to bring the game to WiiU, I love NFS on the gamepad, with the map, it's so great. It's unfortunate EA really really hates Nintendo lately, but hopefully other developers will see good sales and continue to drive 3rd party support for WiiU going forward.



bofis commented on Weirdness: These iPhone Mock-Ups Suggest That ...:

I feel like Nintendo is entirely right here, because just throwing their characters into bad smartphone games will only diminish the quality of their characters anyway...which we love because we love the games they're in



bofis commented on Review: Super Mario Bros. Deluxe (3DS eShop):

This is so stupid, the 3DS runs high enough resolution to display full NES games, and this game is already out in it's original form on the eshop, so really no one should touch this with a 10 foot pole. Same goes for them putting GBA version of SNES games on WiiU VC, just put the full SNES game instead with superior graphics or I won't spend money for it again.



bofis commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

This is sad especially for Mario Kart Wii (and DS), Smash Bros, and all Pokemon games, though at least local wireless will always work. Mario Kart Wii (at least until 8 comes out) is one of the ONLY games that allows for two players on one console to play online with others...



bofis commented on Feature: What We Want to See in SNES Remix:

I REALLY hope Nintendo will make the additional challenges and games available as DLC to the original NES Remix so we can have them all in one place, one icon, one game, like they did for New Super Luigi Bros U within NSMBU, since I already bought the first and feel it would only benefit from being totally integrated with future updates.



bofis commented on Satoru Iwata Confirms That DS Games Are Coming...:

I think it makes sense to do DS games with the gamepad, if the gamepad's screen is the touch screen and the TV is the top screen.. However, the VC they really need to work on is bringing Virtual Boy games to 3DS!



bofis commented on Monochroma Release Delayed on All Platforms:

as someone who Kickstarted this for WiiU, I'm glad you contacted them to find out about that. When I got the backer update I was puzzled as to why it ignored other platforms when talking about the PC launch. It's a shame to have to wait, but I can be patient for it on WiiU



bofis commented on Review: Orion's Odyssey (DSiWare):

I Kickstarted and beat this game already, and loved it. It is very short, and really could have been longer, easily, but the puzzle challenges are hard and I'd recommend it to anyone with a DSi+ who wants some Tangram fun



bofis commented on Review: Hands On! Tangrams (DSiWare):

And for those who are into Tangram games, Orion's Odyssey should be coming out on the eshop shortly (at least those of us who Kickstarted it hope so!)



bofis commented on EDGE to Roll Its Way Onto the 3DS eShop:

Hmm, I have this on Steam, but was about to buy it on WiiU, now this is tempting me....if only there were cross-platform purchases and buying it on 3DS gave it to you on WiiU as well and vise versa ;-)



bofis commented on Wii U Isn't Getting Need For Speed: Rivals Tha...:

Of course the WiiU copy of Most Wanted was BETTER than any of the other console versions, and I bought and enjoyed it. That being said, the OriginID bs was loved up and did not allow you to change what account you had logged into, and I ended up creating a new one accidentally and was NEVER able to go back and log into the right account. EA makes pretty awful ports and I'd much rather a title made with the WiiU in mind anyway.
Please watch the profanity — TBD



bofis commented on First Impressions: Shovel Knight:

I backed this and picked 3DS as my platform, was the 3DS version also on display or has anyone seen demos of the 3DS version who could compare it with the WiiU copy?
