Genesaur commented on Super Smash Bros. Is Getting A Massive Update ...:

In your face, K. Rool fans! He didn't actually make it in. The Chrom Mii actually looks good. Don't care about the new-but-not-really stages, in all honesty. YouTube uploads, cool, yeh. Whatevs.

Tournies, however, I am so down for.

Genesaur commented on Muramasa: The Demon Blade And Trauma Team Hitt...:

I really liked Muramasa. I mean, I already have it on Wii, so with minimal space remaining on my Wuu, I see no sense in downloading it.

Still, hope lots of hack-n'-slash fans pick it up. It's a gorgeous experience, to be sure.

Genesaur commented on Editorial: Super Smash Bros. Should be Integra...:

I agree that they very well may more or less port the existing Smash to NX, rather than make an entirely new one.

They're doing so much to maintain and extend longevity of the current title. It'd sure seem like a waste to make a whole new one from scratch. More characters, more stages, more enhancement.

Genesaur commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

@enderboy221 Arkham City Armoured Edition was great and included all the DLC up to that point on-disc. Arkham Origins was, I've heard, a decent enough port in and of itself, but it's what they're referring to when they mention the lack of extra content.

@MrGawain You've got that right. That very well explains my tastes and interests, at least.

Genesaur commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

@TheLastLugia The sad thing is that it sort of is. I mean, not all of us, and of course there are other factors like poor hardware sales due to the general public not caring about the Wii U's existence. But there are plenty of Nintendo fans who are at least partially at fault - the guys who only buy Nintendo games on Nintendo systems, flat-out ignoring anything that isn't a system exclusive, absolutely share some of the blame.

Genesaur commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

I was personally very happy with Ass Creed IV. Maybe we got no DLC, but there's so much in the base game that I never even noticed until someone mentioned it on here.

I remember you guys mentioning some technical hiccups that I also never noticed or took any issue with.

I got as many third-party titles as I could/wanted. Ninja Gaiden 3 goes in the camp with Bayonetta 2 and its ilk, and Tekken Tag 2 was a lot of fun and even got its own official stick that other Nintendo Lifers have told me is fantastic. And there's also Arkham City; that one turned out really well, in my opinion, with included DLC and GamePad-specific features that were well integrated.

I didn't know that the Deus Ex port was so good. Need to pick that up, sometime.

@NintendoFan64 You must be new to cosplay. Gender swaps happen all the time. Femlinks and dudes in Peach dresses... nothing unusual here.

My favourite example was a very convincing Leon Belmont female cosplay. Embrace unity and equality, my friend.

@Tsuchinoko Ooh, I forgot about the Fire Emblem concert. I wanna listen to that; sure hope they release an album of it, though it probably wouldn't see a Western release, sadly.

I agree that this isn't really news, but at least it beats everything on their cosplay highlights article.

Genesaur commented on Players Reached Splatoon's Level Cap So Fast T...:

Ha! But wait, reaching the level cap doesn't mean you have less to do. Quite the contrary, really; it gives you access to more gear to try out and unlock skills, and it pits you against (theoretically) some of the toughest competition. It doesn't even slightly limit the game's scope. Given the thriving online multiplayer, at no point would I think I've nothing left to do, just because I've reached what is presently Maximum Freshness.

Genesaur commented on Donkey Kong Nearly Missed Out On Pixels Stardom:

No property is treated with respect by being in this turd pile.

That said, I fully understand Nintendo agreeing to have him in the film. This movie is probably going to be very popular, at least partially driven on by the controversy that inevitably arises from people defending against all negative viewpoints.

Genesaur commented on Gallery: Nintendo Cosplay July Round-Up:

Second on the poll idea. For this set, if not for the Fire Emblem-esque interpretation of Umbreon, my response would be a resounding "meh." These were mostly underwhelming, but good on them for trying at all.

Genesaur commented on Nintendo Wins Patent Case Against Handhelds:

"Hey, they stole our technology!"

Really? What'd you invent?

"A, um, sorta rectangular device with a screen and some buttons... that you operate using your... hands."

Uh-huh. Case dismissed. Please stop wasting our time.

Genesaur commented on Weirdness: Sega's Repackaged Transformers Arca...:

@errantrazor Nintendo Life often writes about SEGA topics. Take the Genesis and Virtua Fighter retrospectives, and the recent lip service about making better games than most of their efforts from the past decade as examples.

There's significant overlap between Nintendo and SEGA fans, so I think it makes perfect sense.

Genesaur commented on Exclusive: Project CARS "Simply Too Much For W...:

@MikeW Speak for yourself, buddy. I would have bought it, under the original promise. In my opinion, you're part of the problem.

And I don't mean that in like a pompous, I'm-a-better-Nintendo-fan-than-you kind of crap. You buy whatever games you want, as anyone will. It just saddens me that so few Nintendo gamers have zero interest in anything not made by/exclusive to Nintendo. I figure it's because you have multiple consoles or at least a proper PC, so good for you. Just sucks for us.

Genesaur commented on Devil's Third is Being Published by Nintendo o...:

@DiscoGentleman Aye, only speculation, but it's getting harder to come up with any other explanation. Your assessment makes the most sense, so far.

Hopefully, the full Wii U game won't have broken online, or anything. To echo several others, it'd be rad to have cross-platform play, but I'm not holding my breath for it.

@ultraraichu "What next the final version of the game is actually good?" Man, I sure hope so. Anything less, and this will really have been a waste of time.

Genesaur commented on Don't Worry, Samus Will Be In Metroid Prime: F...:

The more I think about it, the more I realise that this game will likely be the exact opposite of Other M.

That is to say, Other M was hotly anticipated, due to its flashy trailers that truly made us all think that we were in for a treat. That game turned out to be an utter atrocity (mindless defenders notwithstanding).

Now, here we are looking at excessive fanboy backlash for Federation Force being a spin-off game (and I'll admit that I'd prefer a mainline Metroid title, as well) with a chunky aesthetic and not outright starring Samus. And watch it end up super highly rated due to Next Level Games' expertise in crafting experiences with finely tuned, focused mechanics. I'll betcha betcha.

Whatever the result, I personally trust Next Level, ever since Punch-Out!! on the Wii. Fantastic game, that, and since my initial reaction to Blasted Blue Balls has more or less subsided, I'll give the developer the benefit of the doubt. We'll see whose expectations hold up, in the end.

Genesaur commented on Razer "Definitely Considering" Making Controll...:

@SPLAofTOON I was gonna mention the Tekken Tag 2 Wii U stick. I never did get my hands on that one, though I know that it functioned like the Tatsunoko stick, i.e. as a Classic Controller.

I'd love to have one that is recognised by the system as a Pro Controller, but I'm well aware that if these guys do make a Wuu peripheral, it'll most likely be fashioned after the GameCube's. That's not a bad thing, but as a fighting game fan, I sure wish that more such games and sticks would come our way.

@tobbonni I've actually come to prefer the Pro Controller over GCN for Smash. This is partially because I don't own the necessary adapter, but also because the 3DS version kinda prepped me for that button layout in the game. Also, I really don't have all that much trouble adjusting to new control schemes, in general.
