bofis commented on Nintendo Is Licensing Hudson Soft IP From Konami:

I'd love to see the Bonk games back on VC...esp the TurboGpx16 ones that are on Wii...oh, and it would be even more amazing if they could resurrect and finish the NEW Bonk game that was in development until Hudson ceased to exist

Are they rechargeable like the official WiiU Pro controllers? If they come in a few colors I'm all about this though, since I already have black and white Pro controllers, and would have preferred to buy DIFFERENT colors for additional controllers, so these might be the answer as I don't want wired or adapters

bofis commented on Ubisoft Launches Its eShop Summer Sale in Nort...:

I'll certainly be picking up Child of Light at that price...and anyone who hasn't already played Rayman Legends, get it!! It's one of the best platformers I've played in years, and makes the best use of the touch screen in those levels.

Now, how is Cloudberry Kingdom? Also, would rather a bigger sale on it, but tempted by Tetris Ultimate, even if I still carry TetrisDS with me at all times...

bofis commented on Review: Star Fox Command (Wii U eShop / DS):

Every 3D DS game will look horrible until they update the emulators to render the games in HD before outputting to the TV....that and without proper analogue controls this seems like a mess. Stick with Star Fox 64 on 3DS or VC until the new ones comes out...that or why isn't the SNES one on VC? Can't Nintendo figure out an SNES emulator that does SuperFX?

This seems like a limitation Nintendo needs to work out. Why punish those of us who bought this on 3DS already while giving it away to new purchases? How about link ALL of our purchases with our NintendoID finally!

bofis commented on Star Fox Zero's Co-Op Mode to Offer Accessibil...:

If there's local co-op where one player uses a WiiU Pro controller to steer while the other player aims and fires weapons with the Gamepad, I think that would be a fantastic easier way to play where each person is only focused on one task...might also make learning the controls easier.

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

I had a lot of fun watching this, but I felt the production values could have been higher...like 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:

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

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...
