@ricklongo
Agreed. Those of who grew up with these games got used to a much steeper difficulty curve than what you see today. I remember playing this game when I was five years old; while I didn't beat the game, I was able to reach the Wily stages. But by that point I'd already been introduced to the first Mario and Zelda games, as well as Metroid, Blaster Master, and a plethora of other less than forgiving games.

Dreamz commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Hopefully after the score is posted this site can start covering stuff other than Smash Bros. I get that it's a lot of peoples' most wanted title, but the ratio of Smash articles and features to everything else has been ridiculous the past few months.

Dreamz commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

To all those saying that Nintendo shouldn't drop the price due to that placing it back into selling at a loss, take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Nintendo doesn't need the cash yet. What's destroying them currently is a lack of presence in the market, and strong holiday sales will help to rectify that. What's most important for Nintendo currently is grabbing market share and showing that they're still a major player in the console lineup. Profit will come automatically after that's established.

Dreamz commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

I've been seeing 7 pretty consistently across the board.

As to those suddenly deciding to cancel their pre-orders...you DO realize that a 7 is a good score, right?

"7 - Good

A seven is not average in our eyes. This game will sport a few areas where the game is blatantly let down to the detriment of its overall quality and enjoyment, but it is NOT average. A seven is still a recommendation, but you might want to consider what we thought let the game down and decide for yourself if it would bother you before buying."

Dreamz commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

I have the Wii U and PC combo. A good gaming PC makes the PS4 and XBoxOne completely irrelevant, as it'll destroy the best the two of them can offer, while the Wii U has unique experiences you can't find anywhere else. It's the best of both worlds.

Dreamz commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

A cheap Wii bundle could make a killing in the Chinese market, but I understand the stance of letting Sony and MS throw cash at the market to figure it out before Nintendo comes in at a later point with a solid marketing plan built on their failings.

Dreamz commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

I wish the article has emphasized that this poll is what we think the best Zelda game is, not what our favorite Zelda game is. I think that A Link to the Past is the best Zelda game (though to be fair, Windwaker HD wasn't far behind it), and thus it gets my vote. However, my favorite Zelda game is actually Ocarina of Time, followed by the original Legend of Zelda.

Dreamz commented on Talking Point: New Ideas, Not New IPs, Are The...:

A combination is best. I love Mario, Zelda, Metroid, etc as much as the next person, but Nintendo can't survive just by spamming those titles alone every year. New IPs bring some much needed new life to the console.

Dreamz commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

Advertising and product placement have already infected just about everything. I'd rather not have it do the same to my game. So no, I won't be downloading the DLC. Even though it's free. Even if they were to pay me.

@Kirk

While I agree that it would have been amazing, it's unfortunately not feasible either monetarily (most sources still say that Nintendo is paying ~$100 per gamepad, and the vast majority of people aren't going to fork over ~$300 for additional controllers) or in terms of hardware capability - the Wii U's GPU has to render the gamepad video separately . In order to be able to render five separate video streams simultaneously, the Wii U would need to be at minimum 3x more powerful than it currently is.

@earthboundlink
You're not going to see Skyward Sword style controls again. The new game will confirm to the current Wii U controller, not the last generation controller.

While I liked the control of Skyward Sword, even the MotionPlus wasn't enough of an improvement to make it work as well as it could have.

Dreamz commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Outlines His Work Routine and...:

I can't say I disagree with Miyamoto on the VR issue. I know that for myself, personally, I'm super excited about Occulus and Sony's version. However, like Miyamoto I'm not sure the widespread appeal is really there to make is a ubiquitous feature in the gaming world.

Dreamz commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

@Kirk

Maybe I'm misinterpreting what you're trying to convey, but how is Nintendo supposed to fix their major issue (severe lack of 3rd party support) with a convention that's designed simply to build hype for upcoming games? It's not like they can somehow build help build support for something that isn't there. The only thing that's really going to fix the 3rd party support is pushing more console units, which MK8 and SSB seems to be addressing currently (as well as the plethora of other interesting games like Zelda, Splatoon, etc).
