bofis commented on Poll: Nintendo's Free-to-Play Experiments - Ar...:

Ugh, the badge arcade is SO SLOW, it takes FOREVER to load, requires internet, and I haven't won any badges in the past two days with my single free try after not finding any additional badges in the training. I think the free-to-play model is awful, and I do not really approve of Nintendo moving into that sector. It just cheapens games and makes them all about getting you to waste more money without realizing it. I like the idea of being able to assign icons to folders on the home-screen, but would almost have rather this just be a system update to allow that, and have a bunch for free. All of this could and should have just been a fun/free theme addon to the system, not some dumb game I have to spend 15 minutes on each morning. That and why have they not had any system/controller badges since the first day?



bofis commented on Nintendo Badge Arcade is Out Now in North America:

This is the silliest thing ever, why would I want icons cluttering up my screen that don't even do anything? This would be better if you could stamp them onto existing icons or set them as folder icons instead...won't even bother downloading now that I understand what this is...



bofis commented on Review: Toki Tori 3D (3DS eShop):

I already have this on PC and WiiU, but I think I'll pick it up for 3DS since the price is low and I never really did finish the entire game...would be neat if there were cloud-saves so I could pick up from where I played through on the WiiU though. That or cross-buy for loyal gamers



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

@Kamalisk Yes! We were just playing Sketch with friends on Halloween this weekend and lamenting it's 5-player limit. This will be a must-buy for us as having 15-player and ability to add words (and use color!) is awesome! Kind of a low rating for one of the best possible uses of the GamePad in a party setting.



bofis commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

As long as the portable system has real, physical buttons like the WiiU gamepad, and then works with a home console, I'm game. Especially if they allow the current WiiU controllers and gamepad to work with it as well.



bofis commented on Nintendo of America Distributes The Legend of ...:

Not that I got the email or anything, but it's unfortunate that the online portion of the demo is just this weekend during 3 narrow time periods...also that there's no single player to try out at all :-



bofis commented on Review: Race the Sun (Wii U eShop):

This is a great, and very addicting game, I have it on Steam already, and it's fun that each day it plays differently and unexpectedly...might consider picking it up on discount to play on the TV



bofis commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

@KingofSaiyans I dunno about you, but I might spend more time playing Indie games, of which there are SO MANY coming out on WiiU and already out. Between that and the already-announced Nintendo releases, I have way more games than I have time to play on WiiU and will continue to prefer that to play things anyway.



bofis commented on Talking Point: Star Fox Zero's Delay Could Be ...:

pfft, there's Yoshi's Woolly World, XenoBlade, and plenty of other great games...that and Splatoon and Mario Maker will never get old, and should remain driving forces too. Why is everyone always so negative about Nintendo at every step??? I love my WiiU, more than any other console available, so I'll keep buying every game on it I wanna play.



bofis commented on Freedom Planet Runs into Delay:

I'm excited for this release, but would rather wait and get a working copy certainly. My wife was just exclaiming the other day how she wishes she had a "new Sonic" game to play, and I hope this will fill that desire!



bofis commented on Nintendo: Wii U GamePad Is The Only Real Innov...:

I love the gamepad, and hope that it will be useful on the NX too, if that system doesn't already have some upgraded version, I hope we'll be able to keep the WiiU gamepad as a second one on the NX maybe



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



bofis commented on EVO Players Loved Hyperkin's New GameCube-Insp...:

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?
