citizen_zane commented on Club Nintendo Rewards Updated With Some Retro ...:

I love Urban Champion. This was the original Street Fighter! I used to play this with my younger brother, back in the 80's. It actually has more depth than you might realize. Here are a list of moves:
high strong punch
low strong punch
high weak punch
low weak punch
high block
low block
dodge
That's seven moves! That's more moves than most games from that era had. Then you've got other factors that affect gameplay like flower pots being dropped on your head, cops patrolling the streets, a stamina meter and a timer. A lot of people rip on this game without ever having played it. Many of those who have played it, never played it with another person. It makes a big difference. The single player mode is nothing to sneeze at either. When the game was reviewed here, it was said that "The computer-controlled opponents you face are idiots and are very good at walking directly into your fists if you time your punches just right." That's a load of crap if you play this game for any significant amount of time (more than 10 minutes perhaps?). The difficulty ramps up later on, providing a serious challenge to anyone.
I'm just glad that someone at Nintendo must still appreciate this game. I feel lucky to have this available on the 3DS. The only thing missing now is online play.

citizen_zane commented on Wii to Wii U Data Transfer Details Emerge:

According to Nintendo's website (http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/wiiu/en_na/system_transfer_faq.jsp):
"What Data is Transferred During a Wii to Wii U System Transfer, and what data is not Transferred?

The following is transferred during the system transfer process between a Wii and Wii U:

Wii Software Save Data
WiiWare and Save Data
Virtual Console titles and Save Data
Add-on Content
Wii Points
These points will be combined with the points on the target Wii U system, but cannot exceed a combined point total that would exceed 10,000 Wii Points
Wii Shop Channel Account Activity
Mii Characters
Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection data

The following is not transferred during the system transfer process between a Wii and Wii U:

Data from Wii settings
Preinstalled WiiWare software and preinstalled Virtual Console titles.
Software and save data for which transfer is not permitted, such as WiiConnect24 data
Software that is present on both consoles
While the software will not overwrite what is already on the target Wii U system, the new save data will overwrite what is on the Wii U
Nintendo GameCube Game Disc save data"

citizen_zane commented on System Update 4.2 Bricking Wiis Left, Right an...:

The biggest problem with having your Wii bricked is not that you are inconvenienced with having to send it back to Nintendo, it's the fact that you will more than likely lose your save files!

I happened not to do the update because I actually sent my Wii off to Nintendo that very morning. I was having disc reading issues as well as "corrupt save file" issues. I'm afraid that they are going to have to wipe my system's memory clean. Why in the Hell won't Nintendo let us save our all of our save files to an SD card?

"but do some of the people complaining on here really have the sort of cash that they can afford to buy all the games that get released every week, such that they feel really disappointed when they simply don't want all or any of them?"

Yes, some of us do! I currently have 157 VC games and 26 WiiWare games. I go through Wii Points like crazy. I probably buy a card every week or two. I do get disappointed some weeks when there isn't anything that I want to download. I wish they at least give us one solid game per week.
