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.

eaglebob345 commented on Iwata's Approval Rating Rises While Miyamoto's...:

@XCWarrior There will always be that guy who trys to kick someone when their down except... Miyamoto isn't down. These people seem to forget Mario, Donkey Kong Pikmin, Zelda, Wii/Mii, F-Zero, and Starfox (and others that I can't relay off of the top of my head at the moment) were all him. They seem to have selective memory. This may be the first time Nintendo has unveiled anything in the early concept stages (correct me if I am wrong), yet they critique it like a fleshed out and soon to be released game... and people wonder why Nintendo usually keeps tight lips about everything.

@IxC Metroid was from a different person if I am not mistaken, but I get your point. I guess "haters gonna hate" will alway be true, no?

eaglebob345 commented on Review: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (...:

@Mega719 I know it isn't coming to the Wii U. I just worded that very badly, sorry about that. What I was trying to say is that I do want it to be on the Wii U, even though it won't be, and that I have doubts that the game will be good because Activision keeps rushing unfinished products out the door. What I want to know is why Activision delivery two games that could have been good (but came out as shovelware) on the Wii U, but is skipping it with two games that will probably be good (those being Destiny and Korra).

eaglebob345 commented on Review: Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark (...:

Crap... I was waiting for a review for this for a while. I didn't know that the multiplayer was cut out... I was actually looking forward to this one because it is a third-person shooter, and should be much better than a run and gun Call of Duty type FPS... What was Activision thinking with this, and that Spiderman game? Why do they and Ubisoft insist on blowing exorbitant amounts of money on yearly franchises, while tossing budget scraps to everything else? This makes me worry about how that Legend of Korra game will do. I do want it on the Wii U and I probably would get it too, because Platinum Games is an excellent company, but Activision has a nasty habit of rushing games out the door. Games with small fractions of the Call of Duty budget, support, and development team size.

eaglebob345 commented on Review: ZombiU (Wii U):

I wish this game wasn't a first-person game, I think I would actually want it if it was third-person. Also, I played the demo and I didn't like the controls, was not to fond of the no off-tv play, and was a bit disappointed that it looks worse than AC3. Is the full game any better?

eaglebob345 commented on Talking Point: Mii, Myself and I - The Argumen...:

@SkywardLink98 I'm sure you can (I only use my Mii) and I have never been out raced by Hitler...

Anyone who complains about the roster and the addition of Mii's is just selfish. Nintendo has and will always make games for the whole family to enjoy. That means that if kids (or non-childish adults) want to play as themselves with friends and family they should be able to.

@Frank90 That would end up with a never ending roster because the "fans" would keep complaining.

@B3ND3R I would play as Obama IF I could get his Mii to say "Yes Mii can" (as I pound someone's face in with brawler fists).

eaglebob345 commented on Developers Weigh In On The Way Forward For Wii U:

@bizcuthammer Couldn't have said it better myself. If only more people would think like that. So many people think Nintendo is "kiddie" then try to act like AC and CoD are something to be excited about. Anyone who thinks maturity is measured by on an M on a game case shouldn't be allowed to buy M rated games.

@sinalefa They might not want to alienate the "me first" sites like ign gamespot, etc. It'll probably happen sooner or later. Just as how the age of digital media won't sit well with stores like Gamestop, the age of do-it-yourself journalism (through digital media) won't sit well with sites like gamespot. All o this is my assuption of course, but I am sure it will happen to some degree.

@Kirk @Haywired I think the innovative and revolutionary come from them being abl to be use in a wide variety of games (or at least more than one) and featuring NFC technology, needing no added cost of portal, and (the part that intrigues me the most) other developers might have access to those figurines.
