dkxcalibur commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (North America):

I was excited about downloading the free Disney Infinity on the Wii U and using our collection we built and played on the 360......until I found out that the 360 base doesn't work on the Wii U! Bases seem to be around $12 on ebay, or I can wait until 2.0 comes out and buy it for the Wii U this time. it's only about a month away.

dkxcalibur commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:

I think it's sad when a company chooses not to bring a game to one of the Nintendo systems. However, I've grown tired of the COD series back at MW3 but still purchased BLOP2. I was thinking about purchasing this year's Madden until I found out that it's not coming to the Wii U. I enjoy playing Madden but not enough to buy it every single year. It's been a while and the newest version looks great. Oh well.

I voted "None". Not because I'm against playing any of the games on the list in HD but rather because I'm ready for new games from those series except for Mario who we just saw in the 3D games (Land/World). I keep seeing others throwing Sunshine and Mansion out there, and I would echo their vote here.

@WaLzgi It's a complementary service that Nintendo invented. We did not come up with Club Nintendo, nor do we do surveys because they're fun. Do it right, or don't do it at all. Is it wrong for people to want things to improve?

Plus, it's not like Nintendo get's nothing out of this. They get business in a very competitive and changing market; and gain knowledge of their customer base every time someone registers a game and completes a survey.

My oldest son (soon to be 8) is currently playing Tomodachi Life, Rusty's Real Deal Baseball, and collecting puzzle pieces and making his way through Find Mii. He occasionally breaks out Pokemon Y but he seems to be more into the cards and show then the game?????

My youngest son (soon to be 5) is currently playing Super Mario 3D Land and likes to wonder around grass in Pokemon X fighting and catching random pokemon. He is currently sharing my 3DS (Mario & Luigi, silver, SE) but we've been talking about getting one for him for his next birthday or Christmas.

dkxcalibur commented on Super Mario Kart Speeds Onto the North America...:

@GreatPlayer MK8 having too few courses??? It has 32 courses! I think my only gripe is the lack of stadiums like everyone else. Stadiums should have been in the game but if Nintendo wanted to make some more money, all they would need to do is develop and release DLC with 5 stadiums included.

dkxcalibur commented on Super Mario Kart Speeds Onto the North America...:

@GreatPlayer Kind of....I personally think that Mario Kart 8 is superior in every way, makes the older Kart games obsolete for me. However, I also know that older games are still fun to play. I still play a lot of older games regardless of whether or not I like the original or not. In this case, Nintendo of America missed another opportunity once again IMO. To each his own though.

dkxcalibur commented on Feature: Ten Must Play Titles on the Game Boy:

Choosing from this list, I chose Tetris. I enjoyed Pokemon, Link, Mario, and many many other games not on the list but the one game that both kids and parents played, plus sold systems was Tetris. My siblings and I all had versions of the original Pokemon and we loved it but we played so much Tetris that it can't compare for me.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's delayed in NA as well. This can't be because of translation work can it? Aren't NA games released with multiple languages besides English? I want this game, but there are soooo many games scheduled for this year that I don't mind if it's delayed a couple months. Are there release dates for Mario Maker and Splatoon yet?

dkxcalibur commented on Reaction: Nintendo's Drop in Momentum Is A Big...:

Well my wife just informed me last night that we need a 3rd 3DS. I guess our youngest is tired of sharing my 3DS and wants one for himself like his big brother. So, I'll be contributing to Nintendo later this year - most likely this fall.

dkxcalibur commented on Video: Nintendo Minute Heads to Capcom For Rel...:

IMO Capcom is in dire need of guidance, and Nintendo would be great in this role. Obviously the Monster Hunter series and Phoenix Wright series are strong, but besides those series, almost everything else is sub-par. They have not released a "great" Resident Evil game since RE4 (I thought RE5 was okay). Lost Planet always had potential but they never lived up to the hype. The Bionic Commando game on the 360 was horrible. I know Dead Rising was popular but I never enjoyed those games. I did like what they did with Marvel Vs. Capcom and the Street Fighter games, but both games seemed to lack depth. Why is there no new Maximo, Mega Man, Power Stone, Okami, 1942 game????

@JJthe Texan
Same here! More mini game fun for me! Like others pointed out, at least it will count towards the DDP credit for me. I don't have a few other games but with the credit I'll receive from Wario, I can almost afford to DL the others with my credit. The only other game I might get would be DKCR 3D. I have the original but it would kind of be cool to have it on my 3DS too.

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

My plans for the future is to not register any of my products with Nintendo unless I see something that blows my mind or in case they do a promo like they did with Mario Kart 8 or 3DS/Pokemon. The only redeeming matter with the "Club" is that they ran both those great promos! They were really great promos! I took advantage of both and I'm very thankful Nintendo ran both.

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

I understand that Club Nintendo is free to join and receiving any prize at all throughout the year is a bonus, but I'm extremely disappointed with Club Nintendo in general. I have two accounts (don't ask, it's Nintendo), with one being platinum and the other gold. I got two posters for a game I'm not into, and a pouch????? I was looking forward to the Platinum/gold rewards because in years past the prizes have been good. I was wrong. While I'm not 100% disappointed with the DL only prizes (I'll find something I don't own on the list) I really feel like they could have included a more balanced line-up or just gave eshop credit. Why not eshop credit!!!!!! In fact I wouldn't mind if they got rid of Club Nintendo and the Digital Promo and just rewarded everyone with eshop credit that they could use on whatever game they choose. It would be like the Digital Promo only you wouldn't have to only DL games on the Wii U.

dkxcalibur commented on Video: Mario Kart 8 Isn't The Only New Mario K...:

My older son and I both played it at Dave & Busters. I honestly think Mario Kart 8 is the better game by a mile. While it's cool to see and play this in the arcade, I would rather play my Wii U and Mario Kart 8 @ home. We waited in line to play it and it reminded me of other arcade racers but with Mario. It wasn't horrible, it just wasn't Mario Kart.

Ranting, cheering, speculating, yelling, is what Smash character reveals are all about. Nintendo knows this. The hype is good for them. It's part of the community at this point. Plus it's fun to express your thoughts about the game, whether they be negative or positive.

rjejr is my hero! I agree 100% and I couldn't have said it better. Seems like a little too much swords. I don't hate the new additions, I even like the series, I just wish for more variety. Hopefully the Ice Climbers come back!

dkxcalibur commented on Captain Falcon, Lucina and Robin All Join The ...:

I own but have yet to play Fire Emblem on the 3DS but I have played other games in the series. I really enjoy them. However, I think there is now too many characters from the series in Smash. In Brawl, I always thought that Ike and Marth were always too similar. Anyways, I would rather have Wario, Ice Climbers, or someone else that is new to the series then two more FE character....but I would also be okay if Falco wasn't in the game as he's another Fox clone.

dkxcalibur commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

After more thought, I really think he's the next character. They'll show some new footage of a battle and then the Rayman trophy will show up. It will animate as Rayman is disappointed he's only a trophy and then the "New Challenger Approaching" flashes and he's in the fight.

dkxcalibur commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

Can't wait to see who the new character is. I thought there was a very strong chance that Rayman was the new challenger. This now has me scratching my head a bit. Is this a trick or is Rayman seriously just a trophy? I guess we'll know soon enough. I love surprises.....this is Christmas in July!

I will say that IMO Rayman would be great in Smash. I really think his last two games don't get enough credit. They really are on par with DKC:TF and New Super Mario Bros. U. I won't say they're better but they are right there. His move set would be interesting too.

dkxcalibur commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

I can't believe Captain Falcon isn't in this game yet but Bayonetta would not surprise me either. So those two would be safe bets. I would however prefer it to be some Nintendo character that we have not seen in a while like Mike Jones or maybe the dog from Duck Hunt.

dkxcalibur commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd July (North America):

Nothing for me this week. The Wii U eshop games don't do it for me and I already own Tomodachi Life. I may however download something previously released because I have $10 in digital deluxe promo codes screaming to be used.....Scram Kitty, Earthbound, or a GBA game perhaps.
