chess227 commented on Zack & Wiki and Super Mario Advance 4 Look Set...:

Getting those e-reader levels is HUGE for me. I always wanted to play some of those levels, especially airship's revenge which was the walmart exclusive card that is now impossible to get. I'm all over this if it indeed comes with the ones never released here as well.



chess227 commented on Video: See the GameCube HDMI Mod Thrash Cheape...:

So, does this essentially just do the same thing as the Gamecube Component cables.... Without having to buy the cables?

Right now, £167.00 is equal to $236 US dollars which is about what it would cost for the cables on eBay... Maybe even a little more expensive. I'd rather buy the cables and keep my gamecube in its original condition if that's the case.



chess227 commented on Hyperkin's GameCube-Inspired ProCube Pad is No...:

Heck yes. Finally a pro controller that I can get behind. I stopped Playing Zelda Windwaker HD because I hate having the buttons BELOW the right analog stick. That's the worst design idea Nintendo has ever had and has made me loathe their controllers this generation. It literally made it impossible to play some games. No I can finally go back and play wind waker HD and just in time for TP. I've always said Nintendo should stick with their gamecube design and just improve on it. It was a great controller in a lot of ways... Definitely room for improvement, but VASTLY better than the pro controller they have now.



chess227 commented on Wii U Named as "The Top Selling Item on Target...:

Very good news indeed. It's a fantastic system and so much fun.... Too bad they will most likely be disappointed in the fact that those 2 games alone eat up more than half of the Wii U's hard drive space. I wish Nintendo wouldn't do pre-installed games on their systems if they are going to give them such small hard drives..... Another reason I will never go digital.



chess227 commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

@shani LOL sorry I misspoke. I didn't stop playing Wii U games all together, just Windwaker on the Wii U since I really didn't like the controller options. I still play games on there, including Splatoon, which again, has the same problem, because it is very difficult to press the X button to jump when you have to move down off the control stick on the right side. LOL Maybe I'm just a a controller snob, but it really is lacking for me on the Wii U. I also hate the Xbox One controller when compared to the Xbox 360 controller and that is the main reason I switched from an Xbox 360 this time to a PS4. I am definitely going to pick up one of the Hori gamepads when they come out and already have one preordered at Amazon. I just wish Nintendo would have made their gamecube adapter function with more games so that it could replace the pro controller. The good thing about this is that I have been able to enjoy some amazing gamecube games I missed when i completely skipped that generation of gaming on Nintendo because i was on a Playstation then. Hands down one of the best controllers they ever made.



chess227 commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

@gatorboi352 The Pro Controller is AWEFUL... So is the tablet controller, but the Pro Controller is a horrible horrible design. I got tired of playing Windwaker with the tablet because it just felt so huge in my hand after a while and the white screen glowing in my face in a dark room just got annoying, so I tried to switch to the pro controller and it was a horrible experience. Having the analog stick above the buttons on the right is the worst design choice I have ever seen. Your thumb doesn't naturally slide to the buttons. It's the main reason I stopped playing Wii U games and purchased a gamecube and purchased wind waker for that system. The gamecube controller is hands down the best controller they have ever made and I have had a blast playing games on it. Nintendo really should just keep that controller design, make a few minor adjustments and call that their pro controller. I absolutely hate the controller options they have for the Wii U



chess227 commented on Analogue Nt Starts Shipping To Buyers, Pitched...:

...And that $500 doesn't even include the HDMI HD output "upgrade." That's gonna run you an additional $79. I guess considering a Framemeister is around $300, that's not a HORRIBLE price, but I feel like retro gamers would rather have the full retro experience with an original console and would really find it hard to justify the price of this, even though it is a beautiful system for sure.



chess227 commented on Splatoon Producer Inks Out Reasons For Lack Of...:

Here's a thought... How about Nintendo let parents be parents and give them the option to disable voice chat on the Wii U totally if they want to. I have a young son.. I would totally disable online chat if he wanted to play this game... Me on the other hand, I have a brother who lives an hour away.. We would love to play this game together, but haven't purchased it because we also like to chat while we play games. Really annoying Nintendo tries to play the parent instead of giving people the option. Definitely turned me off to purchasing this game and reaffirms my belief that Nintendo is a complete failure at online experiences... Their games are still great, but their online experiences are horrible.



chess227 commented on Nintendo Hoping That Splatoon Will Tempt Lapse...:

@CptStone This exactly. I won't be picking it up for this reason alone. Pretty boring having online play without voice chat, especially for a shooter. Would be great to play with my brother in another state, but geez.. There is literally zero fun playing with friends you can't talk to.



chess227 commented on Video: The Nintendo 64 Kid Is Taking Unboxing ...:

All these people like "This commercial doesn't target a wide enough demographic..." LOL you do know this is exactly the type of demographic that eats at Taco Bell, right. I eat it all the time.... my 59 year old parents... no so much.

Great commercial. Perfect for their target demographic



chess227 commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

God I hate nintendo so much. On one hand I love most of their games, but the fact they can't embrace online play just pisses me off. Will not be buying this game due to lack of online play. My brother and I would have had so much fun.... But alas we live an hour apart.



chess227 commented on Harmonix Explains Why Rock Band 4 Isn’t Comi...:

I think the problem with bringing it to the wii u is that the Wii U won't be around as long as the PS4 and Xbox One. If I had my choice, I would buy it on my PS4, mainly because i feel like Nintendo will come out with a new console, making this one obsolete long before the PS4 will. I just wish Nintendo would drop some money into 3rd parties and have them make some exclusive Wii U titles that people would clammer after. ..... And Bayonetta wasn't it.



chess227 commented on Video: Today's Teens Simply Cannot Handle The ...:

This is what happens when you let today's "gamers" who are used to the A.D.D. gameplay of Call of Duty and silly app games play classic games that actually took thought, time, and skill to beat.

It's not necessarily a knock against them, but gamers who grew up on app games and post-playstation 1 are really used to a different type of gameplay.

"What... You mean I can't just keep running like I do in Temple Run? These things are going to kill me?"



chess227 commented on Nintendo Network Services Now Starting to "Ope...:

You know.... I love nintendo as much as the next person, but I am not willing to give them a pass on this. For them to set such lofty sales goals and then not be prepared for the traffic is pathetic. Since most people are already critical of nintendo's online system being so lackluster, it is disappointing that they just proved it is less than stellar. Heck, half of my friends didnt even know nintendo had online capabilities for online multiplayer games when I got my wii.... Goes to show they have a long way to go on promoting the online functionality of their system. I don't care that I couldn't log into eshop for a few days but it is a HORRIBLE way to welcome new users who may or may not have been apprehensive to begin with.



chess227 commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

I actually skipped the GameCube and wii because I didn't love the direction nintendo was going plus my brother owned an xbox 360 and I got that to play online but like so many, I am very put off by the next gen systems. Microsoft lost me completely with their kinect required and drm even through they back peddled, but I will not ever buy a system that requires me to install games onto a hard drive... I have heard reports people with ps4 have installed 2 games and 2 downloaded games and they have 330gb left on their drive. Over the years of downloading games, that will shrink massively and I am the kind of person who likes to play multiple games at times and who wants to wait for that game to install on the hard drive and then if to need the room, you will have to uninstall the game which kind of sucks. I have kind of burned out on first person shooters online as well and you couple that with nintendos amazing first party games , I decided to purchase a wii u a few weeks ago when the new Mario bundle came out. Maybe I am an optimist, but I think people are going to get tired of gaming consoles dictating how they can enjoy their games. If nintendo beefed up their online system, it would really help expand their market. But for now, my next gen console is solely the wii u



chess227 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ambitious Sales Targ...:

I may be an optimist but I ignored the wii and the GameCube and spent last generation on an xbox. I am not getting an xbox one due to privacy concerns and not getting a ps4 because I have never liked their online system. I think nintendo has a lot of shortcomings but to me it is the system I will be buying. It pushed me over the edge when I saw the new Mario/luigi bundle coming and with my son turning 5 next year, I think it will be a great system to bring him up on. I was 5 when I played the original NES for the first time and want him to enjoy the same games I did. To me, I think the lackluster launch of the ps4 and xbox one will help nintendo tremendously. I know a lot of people who are waiting to buy the next gen systems and for parents looking to buy a system this Christmas, the wii u does look nice with the new bundled software. It's also nice that so many games already released are already so cheap. I have faith in them but they have made a LOT of mistakes. The best thing that happened to them was having so many next gen titles delayed. Hopefully that will pay off
