citizenerased commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Ugh, no, please. Nintendo would make it's own OS, it would be way more closed off than Apple's and have way fewer apps. Nintendo's online stance is archaic and they don't have good ties with Western companies. Meaning the whole phone part would be useless, and I'd be cheaper off just getting a new handheld.

I'd rather see them integrate the handheld and console experience into one. You already see people claim "pick up a few 3DS games then!" when you complain about Wii U droughts, as if the Nintendo eco-system is 1 purchase. It should be: without 3rd party support they don't have enough games. Make a HD handheld that you can easily connect to your TV (wireless or HDMI) that comes with a controller (or works as cotroller) for TV play. Make the eShop super easy to publish on.

All your Nintendo gaming on one device that you can take anywhere, or play on a glorious HD screen.

Boom, you've just sold a WiiDS to me.

Just don't call it that, Nintendo ಠ_ಠ



citizenerased commented on Nintendo Reveals New Wii U Footage and Details...:

Not really seeing the point in a new control scheme if the game isn't built around it. SS' gameplay fit the control scheme so perfectly.

Ah well, this is glorious. I just hope it's more filled than Twilight Princess... based on the size of the gameworld, I'd have to say no. But at least it doesn't look drab.



citizenerased commented on Nintendo Reveals New Wii U Footage and Details...:

The jumping off Epona and immediately turning around in mid-air looks a little silly... but the animation of the world is absolutely gorgeous. Especially the wild horses at the end.

That's an insanely huge map though, I hope they fill it up with things to do. If they only give themselves a year... I almost hope it's going to be postponed.

And hoping for some new items!



citizenerased commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

Seems a bit harsh, but I guess the technical problems really get in the way? Either way, a decent 3rd party swan song as Captain_Toad points out.



citizenerased commented on Video: Watch Us Merrily Cause Some Havoc In Wa...:

This being the only (modern) open world game on Wii U... and likely the only one to hit it in its lifespan, I'll probably pick it up. I have no ridiculous beef with Ubisoft like some of you.

Also, hilariously bad moments at the end there! Love it.



citizenerased commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

I love Nintendo hardware (never breaks) but I'm hoping to see Nintendo go software-only next generation, so they can focus all their resources on making fantastic games (which they're great at) instead of trying to market consoles to the "hardcore" (which they lost ages ago) or the "casuals" (which they've lost with the rise of tablets and $1-gaming).



citizenerased commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

Either the Amiibo's make the game unbalanced, or they make so little difference they're not worth using. Nintendo needs to rethink this. They look cool and I'd gladly buy them, but I guess I'll use them with other games.

For example, why don't the Link and Villager Amiibo unlock their respective DLC for Mario Kart 8? Or at least give a discount?



citizenerased commented on Wii U-Exclusive Super Smash Bros. Modes and Ch...:

Not gonna lie, this was the biggest disappointment to me. First HD Smash, so you expect some visual extravaganza for the exclusive modes and you get... a stale looking board game that looks more disconnected than Smash Run. The Master and Crazy Order sound super similar to Challenge mode. Master Fortress is a fun little extra, but apparently the only platforming we'll be doing in the Wii U version?

Thankfully the rest of the Direct blew the "Wii U Exclusive Modes" section out of the water. If I was only buying the 3DS version I wouldn't feel like I'm missing much though. Missing out on 2.5 times as much music sounds like a worse loss than this.



citizenerased commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2014 - Fal...:

Pretty meagre line-up you've got there, Nintendo, especially with Captain Toad finding it's way to 2015 in Europe. 1 blockbuster and 1 niche action game just isn't that much for the holidays. We all know Sonic Boom is going to bomb (heh) critically.

I'm still happily finishing my GameCube backlog, though Finally getting around to Thousand Year Door.



citizenerased commented on Nintendo Confirms Development of Games That Wi...:

This whole thing is confusing as hell, even for someone like me who understands the situation. Because these things are likely still a year away, and we have no idea what to expect, so I have no idea if I should buy a regular 3DS or not. It could be that all first party releases from now on will be significantly better on the New 3DS. Or it could just be 2 games.



citizenerased commented on Review: Fit Music for Wii U (Wii U):

@Bulbousaur I'll agree she's perhaps not the right choice for such a visual project (not to mention the terrible photoshop greying of the skin), but c'mon, you're talking about an actual real life woman here. Calling her a monster is a bit much?
