Dauntless commented on Amazon Opens Pre-Orders For Super Smash Bros. ...:

What really sucks about this adapter is that it doesn't come with GameCube backwards compatibility. The Wii was just a slightly upgraded GameCube. If the Wii U is similar enough to offer Wii Backwards compatibility it should also be able to do GameCube. Its sucks that this adapter will only be used for 1 Wii U game and not the many great GameCube games that are out there. This is like rubbing salt into a wound. All the pieces are pretty much there to enable backwards compatibility but Nintendo is too stubborn or lazy to do it as usual.

Dauntless commented on The Club Nintendo Reward Details Are In For Au...:

Nintendo's club rewards really suck now a days. They pretty much have nothing except digital downloads ever since they took the shop down a while back.
Its a good thing I cashed out just before that, when they had the Super Mario Accessory Box listed. There hasn't been anything good on since and the platinum reward wasn't great either.

Would it kill them to release Excitebike 64? I've been waiting only since the Wii days. Its not like the title is owned by anyone other than Nintendo.

Dauntless commented on QOL Trademark Filings Point to Quality of Life...:

This is Nintendo's top secret plan? They are going to label their software so you know what category they belong to, because you couldn't figure out which one is suppose to get you in physical shape, or mental shape.

Dauntless commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

This sucks because there is nothing special about a digital game that could have been bought with a couple of dollars. And those that already have all the games being offered get screwed. Sadly I will not be looking forward to next years prizes with the direction Nintendo is headed.

Nintendo had the right approach for all the gamers that were home and not at E3. Watching a live stream of a Press conference is boring. Nintendo's approach of prerecorded video footage is much more entertaining for everyone else sitting behind a monitor.

They have a game done for 6 months and they are holding it back until more units sell? That means its not going to be released. Nintendo is doomed. Its bad enough when third parties don't make games for their system, but it is even worse when they do and decide not to release it.

I guess its official. The case will be red and banner blue on the NA release. I shall put it into a blue case to make it look more proper. Too bad they didn't change the banner and number 8 to red because it would have looked good than.

Dauntless commented on Mario Kart 8 Limited Edition Software Bundle C...:

The shell looks cool, but I don't need any more plastic crap. I'm not disappointed about not getting it, but I am upset that Nintendo would do something like this and only release it in one store location of an entire continent.
Seriously how can they pretend this is exclusive when we know every where else gets it the normal way from regular stores? This isn't 1980. Thanks to the Internet we are more aware of world events.
The good news for those that really want it is that the plastic shell isn't region locked and you can import it. Of course the weight and size will add to the shipping cost and you'll have to sell off the game that comes with it on ebay.co.uk. It should still be cheaper than visiting New York if you're not near by.

Quick boot sounds great if it doesn't mean standby mode. When I turn something off I want it to be off and not use more than 1 watt of vampire power/phantom load.
The future update that makes games load 20 seconds faster will be the real winner.

After watching the direct I am definitely much more interested in this game. It looks like Nintendo put a lot of effort into making it which is good because since the Wii days they usually take the half-assed approach.

Dauntless commented on North American Wii U Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Set B...:

The red game case still has the blue banner and looks ugly. This is one of those games that will need a case swap for a blue. Fortunately Nintendo does sell the official dvd cases on their parts website if you don't have a crappy game to swap with. Why couldn't they just colour the banner & number 8 red to match the case?

Dauntless commented on Nintendo Lifts The Lid On Its Plans For E3 2014:

Nintendo doesn't have too much to show. E3 is expensive and Nintendo is too cheap for that, especially when they don't have much to show. They were expecting third parties to fill in the gaps between first party releases. They weren't expecting to be the only publisher supporting the Wii U.

Dauntless commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:

Part of Iwata's problem is his devotion to Hiroshi Yamauchi. Yamauchi was a product of his time and that time is gone. You either adapt to the future or time leaves you behind. Nintendo is getting left behind. They need to get rid of Iwata. Hes a nice guy but doesn't really understand the modern age.

Dauntless commented on Nintendo Force Magazine Secures Second Year Wi...:

With Nintendo not doing so well, little game news to report because of a lack of third & first parties titles, and how printed game magazines become irrelevant with game web sites like this one, I don't think there is a bright future for this magazine. But, I wish the backers the best.

Dauntless commented on Club Nintendo Adds Some Awesome Premium Mario ...:

Very similar to the NA 2012 platinum reward. From what I can tell the cards are identical except for the stars. The platinum version doesn't have the circle border around the stars. The box for the platinum version is also red and gold, not black and gold. Other than that, the platinum version is labeled "Platinum Playing Cards", not "Premium Mario Playing Cards". There isn't much reason for club members who already got the platinum cards to get this. For everyone else this is one of the nicest card decks I have seen.

Dauntless commented on Hacking Group Claims To Have Discovered Wii U ...:

Those of you who are complaining about the poor devs that are going to skip the system because of piracy, wake up. They already skipped the Wii U (without a piracy problem). Even with piracy the Wii had more third party support than the Wii U does without piracy.

Dauntless commented on Best Buy's 20% eShop Card Discount is Back:

@SirQuincealot I'm not trying to mislead. I can't seem to find any listing for eShop cards on BestBuy.ca, but have no trouble finding it on BestBuy.com. Without an official listing on their Canadian web site its anyones guess which retail stores across the nation will actually have them.
