gatorboi352 commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

"While the N64 failed to replicate the incredible commercial success of its 8 and 16-bit ancestors and was forced to play second fiddle to the PlayStation"

Really, EVERY Nintendo system since then has failed to replicate those successes, save for the Wii. Still, I love my N64.

gatorboi352 commented on Research Firm's Black Friday Data Shows Wii U ...:

@JaxonH but what you fail to understand here in your post (a solid post in its own right BTW) is that Nintendo used to be the end all for video games. 1st party. 3rd party. I give Iwata credit for Wii and DS, but that was a LONG time ago and Wii U/3DS are simply not the answer. Sure 3DS is up on Vita but let's be real Apple and Android own mobile.

Nintendo has so much work to do to get back to relevancy. My relatives who never game just bought a Wii last year. An original Wii. Yeah. Sad.

gatorboi352 commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

I just fail to see the point of the GamePad. ZombiU nailed it, but that was a very specific game and genre. Dual screen gaming doesn't apply well to anything that is more than a snails pace.

The only useful applications of the GamePad for me have been Off TV play and browsing the web. And for browsing the web, I always wish the Pad had a high res screen behind glass. So I instead reach for my zippy Android device instead.

Seeing the co-op GamePad features in this game make me wish the Wii U had more horsepower under the hood. Could you imagine co-op feature like this implemented in a graphically intensive AAA 3D game? Scanning ahead in a large over world field on the GamePad while the Pro controller player preps for battle, like a Battalion Wars type of game.

gatorboi352 commented on Project CARS Delayed to March 2015 on PS4 and ...:

"As the Wii U version was behind the others in the original release plans, however, we suspect that Nintendo racing fans may have an even longer wait on their hands."

ACTUALLY.....

Given that this delay does not sound like the Watch Dogs delay, where people were literally pulled off of the Wii U team to 'all hands on deck' the PS4/X1 versions, I really don't see how this should affect the Wii U delay any further.

They basically admitted they are just holding off from the crazy crowded Holiday window.

gatorboi352 commented on Watch Dogs Companion App Updated For Compatibi...:

The only games for Wii U i'm looking forward to this year end is Captain Toad and this. Not a Smash fan, not a Bayonetta fan, not a Dynasty Warriors fan.

Plus, this is literally the only mature open world game Wii U will ever have. I'll be booking it.

gatorboi352 commented on Nintendo Confirms GameCube Controller Adapter ...:

Given the GCN controller's analog shoulder triggers, this raises a very interesting question: will games like NFS: Most Wanted U now support the analog L and R for gas/brake?

Also, there's only 3 shoulder buttons on the GCN controller.....

gatorboi352 commented on We'd Be Cheating Fans By Bringing Assassin's C...:

"Of course, that doesn't answer the question of why the Wii U isn't getting Assassin's Creed Rogue — a brand new "last gen" offering which is coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 — when it received both Assassin's Creed III and Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag. Your guess is as good as ours on that score."

Are you serious right now? Our GUESS is as good as yours? There is no guessing. The Wii U has no market for 3rd party games. It's the purgatory system for 3rd parties. Wii U owners don't buy them, and PS/XB owners wouldn't think twice to buy a Wii U to play 3rd party titles.

gatorboi352 commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

"Our favoured controller, overall, has been the Wii U Pro Controller, though the GamePad's physical inputs and the Classic Controller are also available."

Could be said for about 90% of all Wii U games.

Oh GamePad.... such a curious case.

gatorboi352 commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

"I have never played a Dynasty Warriors game but I love love LOVE the Zelda franchise.
I'm terrified of this game, tbh."

Probably the case for about 90% of Nintendo console owners.

gatorboi352 commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

"The drawback of this method is that the game's already 30 fps frame rate occasionally stutters, presumably because of having to stream two different views of the battlefield simultaneously."

And that, folks, is why MK8 only has split screen multiplayer.

@JaxonH

There's a simple answer to all of your points made: because Nintendo is no longer the player in this industry they once were.

Now, many (if not all) contributors to this site will probably disagree with me, but it's still the truth.

Nintendo does not demand respect from 3rd parties (especially western) any more. PlayStation. XBox. These are the names synonymous with gaming any more, like it or not.

I've said it a thousand times, I'll say it again: Nintendo, today, is the video game industry equivalent to what BlackBerry is to the cellphone industry. And that is, a big time player of yesteryear struggling to stay relevant in modern times.

Forgot this even existed. Just logged in, and the ability to see what friends are currently online is brilliant. WHY Nintendo, will you not incorporate that very feature into the Miiverse app as well?!

And while you're at it, add in the ability to send private messages on the Miiverse app, just like on the Wii U version.

"This title was made after seeing titles such as "The Letter" and "IQ Test" climbing the charts despite getting really low review scores."

This is all you need to read right there. Dude is a hack, and I'm sorry for ever having supported his games.

Basically he's saying "oh, so these other crappy devs want to make a quick buck making a blatantly bad game?! Well I will one up them in that department! Take THAT!"

gatorboi352 commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

To all of you saying the X1 has a smaller install base than Wii U:

1) it came out a full year later, and only trails 1.5 million behind at that.

2) have you all even seen the sales numbers for Minecraft on 360? X1 version a no brainer.
