briwipdx commented on Mario History: Super Mario Galaxy 2 - 2010:

i played 2 before 1, but as i judge them personally i prefer 2.
i understand the narrative as being a strength to the first, but 2's gameplay was a cut above, refined even further, exploited to awesome. the music never stopped being (inter)stellar. and yoshi. SMG2FTW



briwipdx commented on Video: Camp Triggerfish is Splatoon's Newest M...:

@Aromaiden im just failing to grasp these flaws and issues u mention,
and yet i totally understand ur position, there are always things to improve on.
its just so FUN! outside of the player wanting it to be more of a competition and less of a pure game for gamings sake, which is ultimately something nintendo never tends to do, i think it is pure-good-awesome-super-happy-color-ink gaming at its best. and nintendos design influence has made it so. we'll just hafta agree to disagree. but lets both keep playin



briwipdx commented on Video: Camp Triggerfish is Splatoon's Newest M...:

@Aromaiden you'd prefer a more customized stage slection and established team-based events? for competition i get thT. i see ur point.
but somehow the way theyve done it tho allows EVR1 to play,
and this game excels becuz of that.
i can understand the complaints but some of these design choices have also allowed a more approachable-evrey1-fun atmosphere for which nintendo is so known. its hard to critique this game imho



briwipdx commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

new games basically:
a new Mario RPG. another Pikimin. a Pilotwings reboot.
console FE games, like very large truly-epic-Suidoken-like FE games.
more IP blends like PnDZSMB and FESMT and HW
unified eshop with crossplay.
but mostly new games and new ideas like they always bring



briwipdx commented on Interview: Splatoon Co-Director Tsubasa Sakagu...:

i really feel like splatoon means good things for federation force and blastball
thats right i said it.
it just is a testament to nintendo and how they present gaming concepts in their most fun and simplest form. highly appealing gameplay



briwipdx commented on Talking Point: Raw Power Isn't Vital to Ninten...:

i hope ninty continues to forge its own path.
i hope they ignore the graphics/processing power rat race.
i hope they continue to "not compete" with PSONE.
i hope they again have another "gimmick" in NX, as most all their "gimmicky" additions are truly revolutionary.
i hope they continue to collaborate with other developers using Ninty IP.
i hope "having the ability to make an easier port" isnt their goal for their new hardware.
just keep being u nintendo. as a matter of fact, be wii u.



briwipdx commented on Feature: Nintendo Franchises We Want to See at...:

the potential for a great epic starfox is immeasurable.
however this universe excels at small focused gameplay bits too imho.
i feel it could be silly or serious its really their choice.
im sure i'll like whatevr they release, im just excited to play it



briwipdx commented on Exclusive: Slightly Mad Studio Head Ian Bell S...:

lying, telling the truth, whats the difference.
it was ALWAYS maybe for Wii U. ?>>?
jah! tell that to the backers who donated because of the wii U logo.
what are the developers, politicians? tell the truth losers ;///



briwipdx commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

@khaosklub - not in portland, OR sadly (
its ok, ive done the amazon, now-in-stock, ebay amiibo race before...
and im guessing given that i'm at work when they "go live"
i'll be internet hunting the following waves as well, grrrr.
i guess its good europe and japan arent that into amiibo.



briwipdx commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

this is so so so bad, everything is over.
"the sky is falling.
my life must be ending next.
theres no way this doesnt affect everything about my entire life."
geez, its not like its cancelled ya'll.
i mean, how did u not see this coming, its like tradition



briwipdx commented on Elliot Quest Has Fresh Release Dates for Both ...:

looks really unique at the same time obviously influenced y the greats.
is 13dollars for a videogame really that expensive?
i mean, watching a 90min movies costs as much these days, im sure the game is longer than that.
im all over this indie



briwipdx commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

just waiting on ike and the king via walmart, supposed to be here this weds. then i'll have the full SSBset sofar. bring on wave four! damn u amiibo.
but really, they'll have a wave five... and possibly a six.
do you think they'll release the ENTIRE roster? evn the unlockables?



briwipdx commented on Nintendo 64x64: Mario Golf:

excellent mario golf!.
the GC version putt power meter broke the green game for me otherwise i would say it is better-ish.
best control in the N64. luv the 3DS vs too.
10/10 4 MG64



briwipdx commented on Feature: HD Remasters That Would Be Perfect fo...:

Monkey Ball U. first-person view on gamepad w/ gyro controls. fursure.

i echo most about Wii remakes being pointless and too much of whats happening with P$4/3 and XBOX1/360, i mean u CAN already play them.... remake only if they r rare or unavailable



briwipdx commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Advance Wars VC on WiiU, Rustys Baseball has sucked me in already and im not evn a baseball fan. and i still cant beat champions road in 3DWorld!!!! so i'll try that level maybe a 100 more times. DKTF for KONGcoins as well. and then just sail and watch in WWHD, to relax.



briwipdx commented on Talking Point: New Year Resolutions for Nintendo:

this game-drought seems all a matter of perspective or holding out for "blockbusters" ive had the Wii U since launch, have 9 retail games and a nearly full HD on my deluxe set. how much free time do people have to get more than a game a month and actually complete it? ive been more than entertained but i dont do sports or FPS, so...i'd comlpain bout lack of RPG's the most. go 2014!



briwipdx commented on Soapbox: Super Mario 3D World's Playful Whimsy...:

"Maybe I want games to divert my mind to a nonsensical fantasy world without guns — Nintendo and the Wii U give me that."
i dont wanna re-live some version of the real world in games, especially violent or emotionally tragic things! (horror games r a different story) the Wii U is likely to give me the majority of that kind of non-reality gameplay comparatively and for that i THANK Nintendo... and maybe the PS4
