Genesaur commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:

When I saw the Platinum rewards, I thought with such disappointment, "But I already have almost every game I'm interested in on here!" I ended up going with Mario Galaxy 2, since I want a physical copy of Tropical Freeze, if ever I do buy it, and Crashmo and Metroid Fusion are cheaper than Galaxy 2.

I'm very surprised that Mega Man is still available for a fair price. Just seemed like he'd be as popular, if not more so, than Little Mac or Marth. I'm not so foolish as to let myself wait for that; I've already bought him.

Genesaur commented on Game Jam Tasks Developers With Creating A Zeld...:

I really don't get why it doesn't even seem to be a consideration. I mean, the original point of the Link character is to be a representation or at least a connection to the human with the controller. It's in the character's name, after all. A link to the player.

If I recall correctly, that was once the point of allowing players to name the character in the first place. Somehow, Link just became his actual name, or whatever. I think a fem-Link would maybe help people to realize that.

Ganon can stay male. It'd be downright annoying if they just gender-swapped everyone, but we know there's no way Nintendo would do that.

I would be much more interested in amiibo Party if the board wasn't just a freakin' square.

What is with everyone making such a big stink about online play? It's Mario Party. Do you really think it's that well suited to going online, or is it just the principle of Nintendo being behind the times (or whatever) that's gotten you all up in a tizzy?

Genesaur commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Highlights Nintendo's Strengt...:

So very many comments. I just wanna say that of course the Wii U is going to develop nostalgia and love among its fans, because here we are talking about it so passionately, while it's still alive, so to speak.

It's less like the NES or SNES, more like the Saturn or Dreamcast. I mean, look at the GameCube. I was in high school during that console's lifetime, and any time I talked with friends about new-at-the-time games like Rogue Leader, or whatever, the #1 response was some variation of "gamecube sux." Now, look at it. Even people like Yahtzee recalls the GameCube fondly. Da Wuu has lots of compelling content for many audiences. It just carries the current stigma of being the "uncool" console to have. I feel that the nostalgic impressions of the system after (at most) ten years will be overwhelmingly positive. You just wait.

What they really need is a REALLY good Mario game. And by that, I don't mean a great one like 3D World. I mean blowing Galaxy away. Different visuals would be fantastic.

Genesaur commented on Feature: A Celebration of HAL Laboratory - For...:

@mowerdude I dunno. I usually play on the GamePad if I can help it, only really using the TV screen if I have to, or in more detailed/chaotic action games like Bayonetta 2 or The Wonderful 101. When it's just mirrored like in Kirby or VC games, I prefer to use the GamePad while my lady spectates or plays along using the TV.

This has a lot to do with my extreme nearsightedness. It's much easier for me to predominantly use the GamePad, since I find my glasses to be irksome when worn for extended periods of time (and contacts are so much worse) You might have good vision (or not experience irritation when wearing corrective lenses, if you are also blind) which would explain your aversion to it.

Off-TV play is probably my favourite Wii U feature.

Genesaur commented on Look On In Despair At The Hardest Super Mario ...:

Just couldn't wait for Mario Maker, huh? Y'know, this would be a lot more impressive if it actually followed the real game's mechanics. You can't just jump off the side of the wall, nor can you induce the cape parachute immediately after taking damage, and not while holding shells, either. You also can't regular-jump on the rainbow Koopa shells, so I don't know what that's all about. It seems crazy-cool at first, but once you realize that it's mechanically hacked, it loses all credibility to me. It's a shame, because a lot of the tricks displayed would be possible in the actual game; it has just enough to look like it's legit to the untrained eye.
