daveh30 commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

I'm kinda torn. As much as I love having the boxed retail games on the shelf, downloads are so much more convenient. I've stuck mostly with physical retail copies for all the big Nintendo 3DS and Wii U games, but I also download a lot of games, and have gone mostly digital on PS4 and Vita, especially since Sony's online sales are usually pretty good. I was hesitant at first with digital downloads, but PS+ got me over that.

@andrea987 They are toys. expensive toys, but toys none the less. That was kinda his point... they're the only game company producing these toys that actually has a background in toys. Its what sets them apart from Sony and M$, and why they shouldn't be counted out.



daveh30 commented on Don't Count Nintendo Out, Says Former Xbox Bos...:

@gcunit There is a Mario Monopoly. And Mario Kart slot car sets. Theres no Mario Lego sets because they licensed to K'nex instead... but if you want a Mario building set, they're readily available. The movie is about the only thing missing. it's been long enough since the Mario live action film fiasco that they need to get over it and do an animated film...



daveh30 commented on Minecraft: Story Mode is Heading to Wii U:

I've been looking forward to this since it was announced. As much as I would prefer to play it on Nintendo hardware, I'll end up buying it for PS4 just for the trophies... sigh I really wish Nintendo would implement an achievement system.



daveh30 commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against am...:

The article states that Amiibo data cannot be copied back to the original figure once it's used on the Amiiqo, but couldn't this be done through the game itself? Load the data from the Amiiqo into the game, the save it back to the Amiibo?



daveh30 commented on Video: Summing Up The Good And Bad Of Devil's ...:

soo... bad = framerate, textures, models, overall design, controls.... pretty much everything important. good = dude lights a smoke if you idle for a few seconds, and Sod is apparently hilarious if you happen to be British.

yeah, i'll still be passing on this pile...



daveh30 commented on Tomonobu Itagaki Explains Why the Pro Controll...:

lol... Those are the dumbest excuses I've ever read. I like the Pro Controller and all, but none of these are part of the reason. If you find the Gamepad too heavy, you need to put down the video games and get a little exercise...



daveh30 commented on Mojang is Still Open to Bringing Minecraft to ...:

The Wii U is taylor made for Minecraft, buts it time was about 2 and a half years ago. Minecraft should have been an eShop launch title (or been there as soon as the Xbox exclusivity was up). at this point, you can play it on pretty much everything... i think my toaster runs a port of it. Anyone who wanted to play this has access to it somehwere else. It's just too late to matter.



daveh30 commented on Rumour: Nintendo Isn't Bringing Devil's Third ...:

Not sure how I feel about this.... I wasn't planning on getting this, and it does look truly awful, so in a way its nice that NoA is doin' a little quality control (too late for those who suffered through The Letter, but I digress...). But it is a disappointing that a game that actually had people excited, and an exclusive at that, will end up being swept under the rug, or possibly be released by another publisher to terrible reviews and just up being an embarassment. Nintendo needs get something right soon...



daveh30 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Retail Games of 201...:

Toss up between Mario Maker and Fatal Frame for me. They're obviously such different sorts of titles that it's hard for me to pick one, but they're both Day 1 purchases. Yoshi is also a Day 1 buy, along with that adorable plush Amiibo. Little on the fence with Star Fox, given some of the mixed reactions out of E3, so that's a maybe. I will also be buying Lego Dimensions (and the Back To The Future pack), but that's a PS4 purchase, Trophies being the deciding factor there for me,



daveh30 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Attempts To Explain Why Zelda...:

I'd buy this if we hadn't already been shown it last year. I understand games get delayed and schedules change, but if they had something to show last year, they should have more to show this year. The game is coming, people want to know about it, show it.



daveh30 commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

There's just so much that I want to know about that hasn't been mentioned at all. The Club Nintendo successor... We know its coming, but that's it. What the heck is it? We knew we weren't going to hear about Zelda U or NX, doesn't make it less disappointing. Nothing on Devil's 3rd or Fatal Frame... but we get an Animal Crossing amiibo spinoff! (yawn). There's lots of stuff coming, and much of it worth being excited about, but I really think the focused on the wrong things.



daveh30 commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

Overall, I'm disappointed. everything shown that I have any interest in (Star Fox, Mario Maker, Yoshi) we already knew about. There was literally not one new game shown that I have any interest in buying. As much as I love Metroid and Zelda, i'm not interested in co-op multi-player titles, online or otherwise. I want a solid single-player experience from those franchises.

Sony wasn't any better for me, only Uncharted 4 looked any good, and we knew about that already.

Bethesda has had the best showing so far with Doom (!!) and Fallout. By a country mile... it's not even a close race.
