eaglebob345 commented on Square Enix Announces Limited Edition of Final...:

I'd much rather them put Kingdom Hearts 3 (at the very least) and Final Fantasy XV on the Wii U, than foist anymore spin-offs onto the 3DS just to fund PS36041 games. Bravely Default is new, but the Chibi character design makes me not want it, and it is not on the Wii U anyways.

eaglebob345 commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

Kingdom Hearts is the only game on the other consoles that I would buy another system for, everything else is filler. If it magically comes to the Wii U, then it's all U for me. However, if it doesn't, a PS4 or XB1 can make an adequate secondary console. I am also interested in a few others, Like Tomb Raider and Mass Effect (hoping for a release of the trilogy on 8th generation consoles), but those are just supplementary, not something I really want. If they wanted to safe money, I would gladly have digital releases only on the eshop, than missing out completely, but some companies just don't want to even try to develop on the Wii U.

eaglebob345 commented on Somebody At Ubisoft Really Doesn't Like Mario ...:

Honestly, I don't care. I prefer the bikes anyways. Also, if you don't like them don't use them. People need to stop acting like they are being forced to use them. As for Ubisoft, I couldn't care less about what they have to say. Assassin's Creed, amd just about any "AAA" Ubisoft game, hasn't had a fanbase on the Wii, so I don't know why they thpught they would magically acquire one on the Wii U. Stupid is as stupid does, I presume.

eaglebob345 commented on Review: ZombiU (Wii U):

@phaserborn Yep, at time of writing, it sits at about 700,000, accordimg to VG Chartz. I'd say around 800,000 to 1,000,000 adding in digital sales (assuming people bougt it digitally). For a launch game that was a new IP that Ubisoft buried under Assassin's Creed 3 and Far Cry 3 and lacked the production value as well as marketing of AC3 and FC3, I think it did pretty well, just not as good as they hoped it would. If we ever see a sequel, it will most likely be exclusively NOT on the Wii U like every other retail Ubisoft game this year.

eaglebob345 commented on Review: ZombiU (Wii U):

@MoonKnight7 Yeah, the zombies in the demo didn't want to stay down either. I would still consider playing it if it had off-tv play but, since it doesn't, I am going to pass on it. Third person is the way to go for shooters and survival horror games, in my opinion. I just don't think first person is suitable for any game beyong point and click search games. I don't know why Ubisoft thinks busting a zombie's decaying head open with a bat should be so hard or why zombie brains are bullet sponges, but the demo steered me away from it.

If these come out for Pokemon (just events and a few others, I don't think they will have 700+, unless they sell them on their online store :) ) I would love for them to supplement mystery gifts with the figurines for X, Y, and beyond.

As for the ones pictured, Link, Samus, Pit, and Zelda and are the ones I want. I would like Pokemon ones, but not Pikachu. Maybe the starters and legendaries?

eaglebob345 commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

Also, it could also just be a Wii U with lesser features or material (think PSV redesign) under the iQue brand. All three companies have tricks up their sleeves, one of Nintendo's biggest is already having a presence in China (although it is under a different name). So many ideas floating in my head, I hate being bored... it makes me think too much.

eaglebob345 commented on Orders Open For Xbox One in China as Nintendo ...:

I think we could be seeing a Gamepad-less Wii U (Probably either Wii 2 or using that iQue brand they already had) for China. Think about how the 3DS is with the 2DS or the XB1 with the Kinect-less bundle. Removing the gamepad would kinda suck for some people, but none of the current or upcoming excellent Wii U games require the gamepad. Taking out the gamepad and adding the Wii remote and a pro controller could do well under a Wii 2 moniker, just about anywhere. Slapping a Wii 2 plays Wii U games note on the box couldn't hurt.

eaglebob345 commented on Twitch is Going to Play Pokémon X on a Modded...:

I would rather play the game myself. That and hackers and modders are never a good thing. This may just prompt Nintendo to take legal action. I'm pretty sure that there is something in the terms and condition that we all agreed to when first booting the system about modding and hacking.

eaglebob345 commented on Yokai Watch 2 Maintains Dominance as Hardware ...:

The 3DS is beating everyhing to death, and the Vita is doing pretty good too. The home consoles can't even be consistently above 10,000 units a week. It is a sad sight, and it makes me wonder how the Xbox One will do over in Japan.

eaglebob345 commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Release in Japan See...:

I didn't even need the second analog stick to be awesome (cool on the Wii U, but not at all needed on the 3DS, for me.)

I am actually hoping the final 3DS model has dual circle pads and the extra shoulder buttons. :-) That would make me happy.

eaglebob345 commented on Check Out the Evolution of Visuals in Pokémon...:

@Geonjaha Oh, I know. It was a little disheartening to have static sprites after Crystal, but I didn't care because Pokemon is awesome. I was also glad that my save data was no longer tied to the life of a battery as well. I lost my progress on Red, Yellow, Gold, Silver, and Crystal because of the stupid batteries, but starting with Ruby and Sapphire they fixed that.

The only thing that annoys me about Pokemon games now is that the Vs. Seeker and the Pokeradar are not standard in every region. HG, SS, B,W,B2, and W2 all should have at least had the Pokeradar, imo, and OR and AS better have it too. I am glad X and Y have it, even if it the region isn't designed for it.

eaglebob345 commented on Check Out the Evolution of Visuals in Pokémon...:

@Samuel-Flutter Same here. I was astounded at how much Ruby and Sapphire improved over Crystal, but I was disappointed that Pokemon didn't move in Ruby and Sapphire. Now, with X, Y, OR, and AS, I am astounded that they are in 3D. I guess, with whatever handheld comes next, that I will be astounded by HD Pokemon. Seeing scales on Gyarados, feathers or Pidgeot, or even more realistic flames on a Charizard. Those are thing I used to only dream about, and now we are basically just on step away!

eaglebob345 commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I only see two upsides to this, which are they can distribute awards sooner and it costs them nothing. I would rather have collectible physical rewards or AT LEAST some full retail games that are desirable. Heck, they could have given the option to get one of the soon to come games (Bayonetta 2, Captain Toad, Hyrule Warriors, etc.) for us, since we spent quite a bit of coin on their games this past year.

eaglebob345 commented on Just Dance 2015 on Wii U To Be Featured in The...:

@ricklongo That should be done with AC, CoD, Just Dance, Battlefield, etc., really any game with an annual installment. I think Sony and Nintendo got it right (sorta) with Infamous, Killzone, The Last of Us, etc. for Sony and NSLU for Nintendo. Rather than making the same game with minor changes and a different story, they tossed it out as standalone stuff (actually not sure about the Killzone one). Others probably got it right too, but those are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. All they need to do is release meaningful DLC, and they can run the same commercials over with "Now with X DLC!".

eaglebob345 commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:

I missed out on all three last generation, then I got a Wii U first because it is backwards compatible.

I just went handhelds last generation but I thought it was time to get back into home consoles. I still get my handhelds too, and I am still on the fence bout the Vita. On one hand, Sony is trying to distance themselves from it, but on the other I think there may be one more piece of compelling software to push it into NEED it territory. The PS4 will glide into NEED it territory when KH3 comes out, while the 3DS and Wii U did it when Mario Kart was on the horizon.

eaglebob345 commented on Sony's Shuhei Yoshida Says Nintendo Provides B...:

Every time I see something like this it always makes me sad that Nintendo and Sony didn't go it together. If they did, maybe we could be looking at Nintendo and Sony vs. Microsoft and Sega.

I keep hoping that, one of these days, these two companies (Sony and Nintendo) will hammer out a better deal and take the industry to new heights together, but for now that is just a perfect video game dream of mine. Maybe we could get a WiiPS... what, it beats the Pii US name that I also had... XD

I would love to invite some friends to play with my Pii US. XD

eaglebob345 commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

@Iggly You don't wanna know. I wish I didn't know...

Positivity is good, but coming from Kotaku, Gamespot, or IGN seems more like an insult to the people who actually follow Nintendo news. We know about their biases and vitriol. I can understand if someone does not follow the news, but people trying to deny it happened or trying to play it off as nothing are being delusional. Negative publicity can have a bad effect on companies and products.
Like I said in my earlier comment: Nintendo built their own hype train and these guys are trying to hop aboard (because their Nintendoom train ran out of has).

eaglebob345 commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

@minotaurgamer Might wanna watch the language there, but I agree. Kotaku didn't try to be unbiased then and now it just sad that they are flip-flopping. I bet their extra biased fanbase isn't going to like that. Kotaku (and others as well) have been, are, and forever will be full of themselves (and a little bribery money). Nothing has changed. No they are trying to ride Nintendo's hype train, the one Nintendo built for themselves and their fans.

eaglebob345 commented on Kotaku Says YES to the Wii U - Rejoicing Begins:

So after a year and a half of riding the Nintendo hate train, Kotaku finally decides to say something nice. That's cool and all, but they lost me as a reader when they boarded that train when the other major site were doing it.

Quick unrelated question: Do Nintendo Life, Push Square, and Pure XBox have a name like the _______ trio, or something? I try to recommend them to other people, but I don't know what exactly to call them all together.

eaglebob345 commented on Review: AiRace Xeno (3DS eShop):

@Natsu9k Also, it all depends on how the unwashed masses respond to Star Fox, imo. If people b***h and moan about those older IP's then don't buy them, Nintendo is less likely to make those games. They aren't Activision or EA. They don't annualize everything. They want to make games that are a cut above everyone elses that sell. They've got the former, but the latter is a little tricky to execute because of the hate people pile on top of them.

eaglebob345 commented on Review: AiRace Xeno (3DS eShop):

@Natsu9k I still don't get what they meant by that. Even if it duplicates a frame (which can't be seen by the human eye) it is still 60 fps, at least that's how I understand it. F-Zero would work fine, but Nintendo seems like its lost faith in games like Star Fox and F-Zero after the GameCube. However, since Starfox is coming back, I think F-Zero has a fighting chance.
