lying, telling the truth, whats the difference.

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



briwipdx commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

videogames are a personal experience for everyone. is this extreme violence portrayed in this game not just a sign 'o the times, or symptoms of our current mass-shooting culture? if u wanna snort drugs and hump hookers all while killing people and avoiding the cops, do it. as Bruce Lee said, "what you habitually think is what you ultimately become." ...or something like that. we all have our own versions of escapism, if hookers and hot rides is your version of it, who am i to say otherwise. personally the article has a certain resonance with me, i will forever choose Zelda, Mario and the like over such "mature" experiences. to each their own, birds of a feather flock together.



briwipdx commented on Little Inferno Hits High Temperatures With Imp...:

i wish more people would play it ( u can beat it in less than 3 hours). i try to make my friends play, its a joy to re-experience just watching. the social/consumerist commentary riding the surface of that game can all but be lost when playing it. from the music to the graphics to the humor to the fire sounds... this game is EPIC. super joy happy times. go games!



briwipdx commented on Talking Point: An Open Letter To Nintendo:

sounds whiny and expectant. maybe the letter writer's expectations have changed and paid too much attention to the 24-7-365 lamestream media's continual stories about the supposed immediate gratification thats supposed to occur in our day and age... why can't a console exists in the ebb and flow that is natural, especially when it should be around 5 - 7 years! imho, Nintendo HAS offered us new things from their Directs to Miiverse announcements MADE by the proffesionals to everything that is Nintendoland and the new Wii U outlook. Given their penchant for originality, value, and polish, Nintendo remain anything BUT irrelevant to me. They ARE videogames to this fanboy.



briwipdx commented on Nintendo Announces Mint White 3DS XL For Japan:

so fresh and so clean. gimme more colors.
its the perfect compliment to the light pink here.
release this minty fresh one then 3 "special ed." : Animal Crossing, Pikachu Pokemon and SMT IV. please and thanx.



briwipdx commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo Super Famicom:

SO many memories made. one of my biggest regrets was trading this and ALL the games i had to get the N64 (which i still loved and have.) My naive younger self was convinced that newer would be better, it wasnt. long live the SNES and thanks be to baby jesus for the GBA and Virtual Console as ive somewhat regained my collection. i heart Nintendo and their genius in game design!
