dkxcalibur commented on Video: Terrifying Giant Mii Heads Promote Hall...:

I get it, and it appears to be a great idea, but I'm not getting my hopes up. I doubt we'll get any more StreetPass hits then we usually do. My area sucks when it comes to StreetPass. Yeah we have Mcdonalds, Burger King, and Ruby Tuesday, ex.; but as far as passing another person carrying their 3DS....forget about it!

Maybe we'll get a Smash puzzle panel prior to the StreetPass weekend.

dkxcalibur commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

When I first saw the artwork when this was announced, I thought it sounded unique. The concept was fresh and I had high hopes for the game. Now that I saw the Pre-Alpha trailer, I would say that my "high hopes" need a miracle. Everything looked horrendous. In fact, I'm not sure what they hoped to achieve by producing this trailer. It would have been in their best interest to keep everything a secrete and continue to work on the game....unless they were fishing for financial support. If that was the case, good luck!

I'll just go and say it, David Smith it pathetic!

I think Nintendo always has a way of showing the world that it's not always about the system but more about the games; and when the critics count them out, they say nothing. "All" they do in response is create epic classics that people remember many years later.

dkxcalibur commented on Video: Your Heart Will Melt At This Sega Genes...:

I went with the Genesis when I was a kid. I had to sell off my entire NES collection of games to be able to afford it.....and even then, I was prepared to buy it without a game to play. My parents talked me into saving until I could afford the system and a game. Did I listen? No. I bought the cheaper, struggling TurboGrafx 16 instead. I ended up getting the Genesis for Christmas a couple months later with Sonic 2 and Shining in the Darkness.

dkxcalibur commented on Super Smash Bros. Website Introduces amiibo De...:

@bizcuthammer Wow, this was exactly what I was thinking. I couldn't have said it better. The figures look really cool, but I need more then what Smash+amiibo brings to the table to start purchasing the figures. It almost seems like Nintendo saw how successful Disney and Activision were with their figures and wanted in on the action, and threw the Amiibo thing together just to cash in. The idea doesn't seem developed enough. We need more info!!!!!

I think if Amiibo got it's own game similar to the Streetpass Plaza on the 3DS, I would be more interested.

@Achoo What's your point?????

I happen to like New Super Mario Bros. U more then the demo of Bayonetta 2 (I know it's just a demo, but that's all I have to go off of). This proves that review scores are opinions only. I only look at scores if I'm on the fence about buying a game or not.

I finally got a chance to play the demo last night. I'll be honest and say that it's not something I'm typically into and my first impression is that it's a button masher; but for some reason I really enjoyed playing it. I'm going to play through the demo a few more times before next week.

dkxcalibur commented on Bayonetta 2 in North America Comes With a Rath...:

I'm most likely buying the physical copy if I get this game instead of downloading only because I need a hard drive before I download any new games. I'm actually content downloading versus buying the physical disc at this point in my life. I no longer need to trade games in to buy new games/systems and I'm not a collector. I'm honest with myself about what my future plans are with games and I don't have the space for games I don't play anymore. The only way I would change my mind would be if I get a new hard drive before the game releases.....which cost money.

dkxcalibur commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

@unrandomsam Everything that you listed I'm aware of but most of the titles you list are nothing more then remixes of the original, for example Ducktales HD. Why isn't there a "new" ghost & goblins? It doesn't have to be a retro title or remix. They could get creative and come up with a unique experience based off of the basic concept, like when Nintendo came up with Mario 64.

@KeeperBvK Awesomesauce! Your comment made my day! I would love to see this too. Capcom made some of my favorite games back in the days of NES and now they don't make games that I'm interested in. I have not liked a Resident Evil game since 4. Street Fighter IV didn't do it for me. Every time I try to get into Monster Hunter, I don't like it. The only Capcom game that I've enjoyed recently (even though it's not that recent) was Capcom Vs. Marvel 3. We still play that game!

Whatever happened to Ghost & Goblins, Little Nemo: The Dream Master, Mega Man, 1942, Bionic Commando, Power Stones, Okami, Strider, the Disney licensed games, and Viewtiful Joe?

dkxcalibur commented on Mega Video Game Fan Aaron "NintendoTwizer" Nor...:

Most of my childhood consisted of selling my older generation collection in order buy the next generation system so I don't have much beyond the GameCube. I'm now to the point of wanting to download everything because I don't intend or need to sell old games anymore and because I don't have space to store games that I don't play anymore. I'm okay with paying for the experience of playing through a game or story. I don't need a physical copy in my hands or on my shelf.

dkxcalibur commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

I got excited after seeing the article yesterday. It would have been awesome to play Mario Kart 8 with GC controllers if I wanted to. Oh well.

Now I'm back to either buying the adapter for one game to utilize my 1 GC and 2 Wavebirds or buying 1 Pro controller??????

dkxcalibur commented on Gallery: A Closer Look at the Six New amiibo F...:

I think all of them look great. The best IMO is the Captian Falcon figure, but the Luigi one made me smile when I saw it.

Like others, I'm on the fence until I see that these figures actually bring something unique to the table. I'm especially having trouble imagining what they will do in Smash. You can already play as all the characters represented as figures in Smash. You can already play against CPU characters with whatever difficulty you want. So what do they do? Nintendo needs a Nintendo Direct soon!

Thanks for the video. I was curious to see exactly what they looked liked and sounded like. I know there's examples on the shop page but this gives you a better idea of what you're buying.

We went with Black on our Mario & Luigi 3DS and Blue on our blue 3DS for now. I'm not sure about spending $2 for each theme. But they do look cool.

dkxcalibur commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Begins North Am...:

It's funny how there are multiple people, including myself, basically saying that there are too many games coming out for the Wii U; and yet there are people in the world who say that the Wii U is lacking games!!!!! CRAZY

The more I think about what's coming out and when they're coming out....and how much money my family has to spend on games, I may end up skipping Bayonneta 2 until later. There might be a better time throughout 2015 that makes better sense to pick up either Bayonneta or Toad. We'll pickup Splatoon on day 1, whenever that turns out to be. I've been wanting a FPS that is family friendly to come out to introduce to my boys. But after Splatoon, there's not much else I'm excited for as I've never been a fan of Kirby or Yoshi games.

dkxcalibur commented on Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Begins North Am...:

I really want this game. However, I don't think I can justify buying Bayonetta 2, Smash, and Toad all within 42 days. Especially since Bayonetta 2 comes with the original. The Toad levels in 3D World were awesome and I looked forward to playing each one when I saw them on the over-world map. I may end up buying all three but not playing Toad until deep into winter. I really need to finish Windwaker HD soon!

If there turns out to be a hub type plaza/game similar to Mii Plaza, then I might be interested. If you can do something with the figures besides stuff like fight against them in Smash then I might be interested. Basically I need to know a lot more about what they do before I buy.

I will admit that they look awesome though.

@kereke12 Except that they are charging for themes that advertise their games!

I like the idea of themes. Xbox Live has had themes for years now. However, I never purchased a theme there and I can't see myself buying a lot of themes on my Nintendo systems also. The one thing on Live that companies took advantage of is free advertising. I remember downloading the free Gears of War 2 themes a couple months before the game released, so that every time I fired my system up, it was staring at me reminding me that it was coming out soon.

It would be cool if there was a separate Amiibo game similar to the Mii Plaza games where you can level your Amiibos in various Nintendo games and then take them to the Amiibo game and unlock stuff or use them in some sort of game.

dkxcalibur commented on Masahiro Sakurai Shows Off amiibo Interface in...:

As figures they look great, but I'm still questioning why I should buy these. I know they won't hinder gameplay, but I'm not sure why I should shell out money to buy them? So in Smash I connect them and fight them? Can't I already do that against all those character? Does each figure's "figure player" AI evolve to my playing style and strength? Too many questions right now.

dkxcalibur commented on Guide: How to Unlock the Full Roster in Super ...:

I can't even decide on the best control layout (if anyone can suggest something that would be great, everything I try feels awkward), I definitely can't pick which fighter I like best!!!! Although I did create a Mii fighter (ranged weapon) and I did really good with him. Also, I never liked him in the older Smash games but I'm holding my own with Kirby right now too.

......Yeah, and Nintendo fans have been asking for some of the Rare games to become available for years. When are we getting the newest Killer Instinct? I don't feel bad for them at all. Buy a Wii U!

There are so many good comments! Some are really making my day go good.

dkxcalibur commented on Nintendo 64x64: Killer Instinct Gold:

I got this game on Christmas morning with our family N64. We wanted Mario 64 or even Pilot Wings but we got this game instead. I fell in love instantly and played it for hours and hours. I have been tempted to buy a Xbone just to play the new one, but the price tag is a little much for the current library.

Go Sabrewulf!

dkxcalibur commented on Nintendo 64x64: Wave Race 64:

I have owned both games and love them both. It's a very unique racing experience that has not been well emulated by other series. The "floating" feeling in the controls was perfect.

dkxcalibur commented on Game & Wario Stage Brings The Fear of 'Mom' In...:

This game will come out no later then November 21st. If they go a week later (November 28th), they will release on "Black Friday" in the states and we all know that they won't do that. If they go past that date, they will be in December with less then a full month until Christmas to sell their much anticipated "system seller" game and figures. If this comes out in December, it will be a missed opportunity by Nintendo for sure.

@MrMario02 True, and so is Maryland; but depending on where you live in PA, it could mean a 6+ hour drive for an opportunity to get into the event. The entire tournament is lame. If you want to find out who the best is, open it up to more people!

On a side note, I didn't know there were this many PA games on here....Keystone represent!

dkxcalibur commented on Miiverse Update Moves Search Boxes and Improve...:

@Iggly Actually that's exactly what I want. I want to be able to post a little sketch of Mario fighting a metroid or Link jumping over some DK barrels. I want to be able to use the stamps that I collect in game, where ever I want. The one thing I miss about being on my 360, is the achievements. I like earning the achievements while playing and looking at everyone else's. Nintendo's stamps would be an even funner way of doing achievements.

dkxcalibur commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:

Bayonetta 2 is coming out with the original included for free and I'm supposed to spend my money on Ubisoft's unsupported Watch Dogs game????

I've bought the last two Rayman games. They were awesome. I have also purchased a couple of the AC games in the past. However, when they delay a game that has already released on every other platform, I lose interest very quickly because I start thinking about what's wrong with the game.

dkxcalibur commented on Miiverse Update Moves Search Boxes and Improve...:

I don't hate Miiverse but I also don't use it on a daily basis. I also, don't use it anywhere but my Wii U.

The one upgrade I'm always hoping for, is stamp integration outside of the game in which you collect the stamps. For instance, why can't I use my stamps that I collected in Super Mario 3D World to post something on the Mario Kart 8 board? It would be a really cool achievement system if they allowed people who collected the stamps to use them throughout Miiverse.

But who knows, maybe it's just me that would like this????

My guess is that we'll have the New 3DS in time for the holiday season in both EU and NA. I'm also going to guess that Nintendo is waiting to announce the release date because of the special edition 3DS systems that are out now or coming soon.

dkxcalibur commented on Cancelled Mario Volleyball/Wrestling Wii Title...:

I never cared much for Strikers so I can't say that I'm disappointed to not see a similar game.

Why is there no Mario Baseball being planned. Baseball is popular in both NA & Japan and there isn't many baseball games on the market. I know Rusty's exist on the 3DS but I would categorize that as a party/mini game with a baseball theme. I'm talking about an arcade or simulation of baseball....or if they wanted to mix it up, how about kickball?

dkxcalibur commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

I happen to think it was a great review. Also, I wish I could play this now, so I could be good to go when 2 comes out. I own a 360 and yet somehow missed out on the original so I'm pumped. My only problem is that I play games slower then the typical gamer, so if I start with B1 in late October, I may not get to B2 until well into November......and then Smash comes out! So I might not get to B2 until December.....and then Captain Toad comes out! So then I might not get to B2 until January! What a problem.

I wish I knew if I could ignore B1 for B2 and come back to B1. But then I might not want to. Again, what a problem.

@polivar4 Most likely. That's not really my thing. I've played the series before and I'm not sure adding Zelda characters is going to improve it enough for me. Who knows, maybe I'll give it a try at some point. Plus, I'm currently playing 4-5 other games right now. (Fire Emblem, Kart 8, Wind Waker, Siesta Fiesta, and Rusty's)
