crimsoncavalier commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

The MK8 DLC has been fantastic. The prices are justifiable too, because you're getting pretty much half a game (16 new tracks out, new characters and new vehicles).

The Smash DLC has been a lot ... less good. I admit it is partially because I don't think Smash is as good a game as MK (Mario Kart always > Smash), but also because ... so what? I don't care if a Mii character can dress like Sonic or Mega Man. New fighters are all well and good, but again, so what? Why not new stages?

All that being said, I like the idea behind it, but I'd rather them start on a new game, new idea, new IP. But if I had to pick one or the other, it would have to be the MK8 DLC. I couldn't care less about the Smash DLC, and it's also overpriced.



crimsoncavalier commented on Download Card Prompts Speculation Over DLC Que...:

I don't mind DLC. If it's extra crap like costumes or some sort of stupid weapon that isn't necessary to enjoy the game or to succeed in it, that's fine. For people that want to collect, say, a Shulk costume or a Dunban style something-or-other, that's cool. But if the DLC is something crucial to the game, then I'm against it.

That's the problem with Activision and CoD. You can't play the game anymore if you don't have the DLC: the new maps and stuff. DLC like what Oblivion and Skyrim did ... that's ok. It's optional. It adds new quests and new items, and if you don't want them, then your game is just as fun and playable without them.



crimsoncavalier commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

If Nintendo go with a unified system (which after a few days of thinking about, I find unlikely), I will go away from Nintendo forever. And that will be a shame. A "handheld/console" will not be powerful enough to house any of the latest/greatest games. I do NOT think it's a good idea. If they do this, it will be a risk they will regret.



crimsoncavalier commented on Eiji Aonuma Explains That The Legend of Zelda ...:

The only game that has used the Gamepad right — that I own — is Deus Ex. That game uses the Gamepad exactly how it was meant. I hope that Zelda uses it in a similar manner. But I also hope there are options. I would rather not play with the Gamepad if I don't have to.



crimsoncavalier commented on Ubisoft's Unreleased and Finished Wii U Game H...:

What a joke from a joke company. They can keep their trash. To think they are arrogant enough to say "we'll hold on to this little nugget until more people get a Wii U ..." as if even if the Wii U had 100 million units sold, anyone would buy this trash.



crimsoncavalier commented on Parent Trap: amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

I'm buying them simply for the collectible aspect. Nintendo stuff always ends up being worth a lot in the long run. However, as part of a game, they not only do not interest me in the slightest, but don't seem to have a real point. I probably will never unwrap mine.



crimsoncavalier commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

I always liked Sonic, back in the 90s. But these new games are awful. I also agree that they need to take some time off, but I think they need to take a page out of Nintendo's book and release a "New" Sonic the Hedgehog side-scrolling platforming adventure. Just bring it back to classic Sonic, make it quality, and get the old fan base back in it. Not just the ones that have stuck with Sonic through the awful games, but bring in the people who have abandoned ship, like myself.

As an example, I hate 3D Mario games. Didn't like Mario 64, Sunshine, didn't really care for Galaxy (though it was better, IMO, than Sunshine), but I eat up 2D Mario games. New Super Mario Bros was, to me, one of the best things Nintendo did with Mario. I'm a fan of all of the NSMB games. If SEGA can't figure out what they're doing with Sonic, then go back to basics. Heck, let Nintendo get a crack at the game, if they're not willing to do it themselves.



crimsoncavalier commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

In terms of gaming, the Wii U has the better software at the moment. In terms of mass appeal, well, that's where Nintendo are struggling. They need to get the word out better than what they've done. Why they didn't advertise the heck out of Bayonetta is beyond me. Bayonetta 2 is the best game of the year, on any console, and it barely got a mention from Nintendo, other than that weird Playboy team-up ...

Nintendo has a hidden gem in the Wii U, but it needs to come out of hiding.



crimsoncavalier commented on Preview: Having a Brawl With Super Smash Bros....:

@SockoMario I hope this game does so well and that it's fantastic for everyone out there, but to be honest, I'm not looking forward to this game at all. I doubt I'll buy it. I wish I had not gotten the 3DS version, or else I may be a little more excited about this one. I've played the 3DS version twice. Haven't touched it since. Huge mistake.



crimsoncavalier commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Amazon Listing Say...:


This would be excellent. I can think of no better way to use the Pad than this sort of thing. But a real Civ game, not a watered-down console version like Civ Rev was ... ugh.

As far as Smash, the more I read about the Wii U version, the more disappointed I am that I got the 3DS version, because I very likely won't get both.



crimsoncavalier commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:

Ubisoft has a gameplan, and it all revolves around finally stopping Nintendo support, once and for all. They're releasing the game months after the other versions; it's a port, which is probably done poorly; it is coming at a very busy game release time, probably coinciding with Smash Bros.. All of those factors are going to guarantee that this game is a commercial failure.

Don't think they don't know this. They KNOW what they're doing. They're a huge company. SOMEONE that works there has to have thought. "The release date for a delayed port of a mediocre game should NOT be during a time where Nintendo may even possibly consider releasing one of their biggest IPs."

So, they're going to use this game's poor sales as some sort of "proof", cancel all future Wii U releases, and that'll be that. No more AC, no more Splinter Cell, etc.

That said, I may get this game anyways. It looked interesting, and I own neither an XBO nor a PS4.
