Gerbwmu commented on Review: SPIKEY WALLS (Wii U eShop):
@MeloMan - well said
Gerbwmu commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):
@rjejr - OK......I'm going out on a limb.....we will have a pre holiday hype Nintendo Direct on October 9th during which it will be revealed Bayo 1 will be available in the NA eShop directly following the direct and if you pre purchase Bayo 2 you get Bayo 1 for free.
Now to be completely wrong......
@rjejr - My thought was that they would release this a few weeks early in a promo for buying Bayo 2 digitally.......preorder Bayo 2 and play Bayo 1 today or buy Bayo 1 and get the price off your digital version of Bayo 2 type thing
Gerbwmu commented on Cancelled Mario Volleyball/Wrestling Wii Title...:
I wouldn't mind a Mario Pro Wrestling game on Wii U in the same style as the great THQ N64 efforts.
As soon as I get done talking about how horrible this game is I'm going to go eat a Banquet TV Dinner and drink a Diet Mountain Lightning and then take a nap on my futon.
Wonder if reviews on Bayonetta mean that it will be released on eShop not long after Hyrule warriors is out worldwide
Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 18th September (North America):
@Xtremetdifan - Someone on eBay shows having sold 23 of the codes for $14.95. Not sure how he got that many codes but that is a heck of a way to scam $300 for nothing. Almost wish I would have sold mine instead of giving them to other NLife memebers. Darn morals........
@gabopr75 - At Best Buy
I guess it would have been helpful to include Best Buy in the post. Edited now.....thanks!
Gerbwmu commented on Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Speeds To Earlier Re...:
Hoping this game surprises the Sonic fans. I feel like they are over due for a gem.....but this probably isn't it
Heads up to anyone in US, Best Buy has Black Ops 2, Zombi U, Ninja Gaiden, and Cabelas Big Hunt for Wii U on sale for $7.99 at least online...not sure about in store. Decent deals for new games if the titles interest you.
Edit: it is in store as well although the prices are still marked as regular price. Also today is the only day for the sale so if you are interested act fast.
@AdmiralThrawn - smashing all those who stand in your way......until book 3? Been a while since I read the series with the Admiral I don't really remember his demise
Gerbwmu commented on Super Smash Bros. for 3DS Thrashes the Competi...:
Heck of a week for PS4. Destiny appears to have helped it greatly this week. Wii U continues to slow down but, if I'm not mistaken, Bayonetta is out this week? Hopefully Wii U sees a burst for a few weeks. Fatal Frame coming soon too.
Poor XB1.......it is falling fast. Japan looks like a lost cause for now.
Gerbwmu commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):
How much did the music lower the score by?......cause as a gentlemen who prefers the heavy metal genre I kinda enjoy what I've heard of the unique take on the classic Zelda music.
When announced I figured this would be a no buy for me but I'm getting closer to purchasing this title. It's been so long since I've bough a button masher and it seems like great fun in an old school break my controller type of games. Who knows maybe I'll add this to my collection sometime before Christmas
Gerbwmu commented on Interview: We Loot Image & Form For Insight In...:
@DiscoGentleman - plus the reward zone points for Best Buy gift cards......just a little more to add to your over thinking! I think when I totalled it all out I spent $195 for basically $285 worth of credit......still sitting on $90 but I think that will be gone by January
seems like my kind of game........I need to start saving some more eShop funds....maybe Best Buy will do another 20% off deal on cards again.
Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Advert Confirms November 21st Launch ...:
Hopefully this is correct. Should really help push some Wii U's for the Holidays and make a lot of gamers happy. I'm still waiting on Nintendo to announce something additional for the holiday. A surprise eShop release or something to add a little buzz in late September.
Gerbwmu commented on Exclusive: We Go Hands On With SteamWorld Heis...:
Love me some turn based strategy..........can't wait to see what this turns into.
Gerbwmu commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Brings Circ...:
This reminds me of all the people throwing Wiimotes through their TV's......sure it happens occasionally but it is usually the fault of the user. As always though......the stupid wheel gets the greasy 3DS.....or something like that.
Gerbwmu commented on Weirdness: There Are Super Smash Bros. for Nin...:
So me the fool gave my codes away to NLife peeps when I could have sold them.......I could have bought a game or 2. Glad I shared mine and really....who is paying for a demo code that has 4 fighters. A fool and his money are soon parted I guess.
Gerbwmu commented on Game Schedule Outlined for Nintendo Treehouse ...:
Not really gonna watch any of this I guess. Already have a ton of info on the games being shown with the exception of 3ds remix and I have no real desire to watch Hyrule Warriors or Bayonetta after we just had directs for them. Captain Toad seems like it had decent coverage at E3 and beyond and Smash has been all over the place for months. Fantasy Life I guess deserves some love though.
Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 11th September (North America):
@Mr_Trill281 - hard thing being a Cowboys fan these days......Go Lions! (always hard being a Lions fan)
@Stucazzo - thank you for the opinion....maybe I will wait it out for a cheaper price
@bezerker99 - I find it amusing that Sonic is impatiently tapping his foot over the wait on Week 2 Smash sales
@CaviarMeths - I like to think NoA is trying not to release VC games when other 3rd party games are being released to keep that game in the spot light.
Might pick up Unepic finally......but I really need to save some of my eShop dollars......I'm guessing I'll need them for October through January
Gerbwmu commented on Watch Dogs Wii U Release Dates Confirmed:
Maybe Ubi will release its "secret held back game" in December CoughRabbidsCough and help support the U for one last holiday before we eventually see ZombiU2 in 2016 which will take place in Ireland......ya know cause U2.........never mind....its not funny or amusing
Gerbwmu commented on Yokai Watch 2 Back at Number One in Japan - Wi...:
Wii U numbers haven't been this low in a long time......hopefully Fatal Frame will give the numbers a boost.
Nice to see MK8 hanging strong and even Hyrule Warriors is still in the top 20.....gonna reach the 100K mark next week?
Gerbwmu commented on From the Forum: To Buy or Not to Buy? SPIKEY W...:
People complain that others are buying what they consider a crappy $1 game because it is ruining the Wii U and the eShop........then they complain that we don't buy enough crappy 3rd party games at $59.99 that are buggy and lacking content because we are ruining the Wii U and 3rd party support.....so which is it....am I suppose to buy crappy games or not?
Simple....I won't buy it.....not because of some high moral ground but because the game doesn't appeal to me which is what i do with all games regardless of price, genre, publisher, developer.
@RCMADIAX - has provided me with 3 great experiences that both my sons and I have enjoyed. Not to mention POKER and BOX are actually pretty good educational tools disguised as games.
Buy what you like.....skip what you don't and if this helps his little company develop more of the titles that I like then good for him because I can skip what I don't like but I can't play what is never made.
Gerbwmu commented on Rock Zombie Is Bringing Hard Rock And Side-Scr...:
Hmmmm.......wonder if the guitar player has a "golden axe"
Gerbwmu commented on September's Club Nintendo Reward Details Are C...:
Super punch out is a game I love but I have the cartridge and I'd want to upgrade it to the Wii U version so.....maybe I'll keep my coins for now
Gerbwmu commented on Rejoice, Little Orbit's Penguins Of Madagascar...:
The cartoon was pretty good.....not sure if the movie will be able to match and I'm sure the video game will be less then good.......but maybe they will produce a gem.....you never know
Gerbwmu commented on SPIKEY WALLS is Flapping Its Way Onto the eSho...:
My favorite part is the background bricks that don't move.......I think I will skip this one RCMADIAX and save my $0.99 to put toward SUPER ROBO MOUSE
Gerbwmu commented on Feature: The Nintendo 64 Controller and the Ri...:
The N64 controller was my favorite until the gamepad......I guess my taste in controllers is outside the norm. The original XBox controller is still my most hated which is probably why MS has never sold me a console.......although the controllers since the original are good.
Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Confirms Details of Its Super Smashin...:
Maybe GBA Fire Emblem will show up next week on Discount like Europe got......probably not but I can dream
Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 4th September (North America):
Cubemen 2 might get me at some point but for now I'm gonna pass this week......gotta keep my funds around for some key releases I know are on the way
Gerbwmu commented on North American Club Nintendo Replenishes Its P...:
What's a CD? Oh you mean those weird record things that don't work on my turn table?
I prefer the games myself but variety is always good
Gerbwmu commented on Interview: Six Miles Under Developer Discusses...:
Seems like a neat idea.....kinda wish it had a little more depth (2.5D?) for movement like Final Fight/Streets of Rage but that might be misguided nostalgia speaking on my behalf. I will keep an eye on this and I wish these guys well. Hopefully they can give us another quality title on eShop
Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Introducing The New Challengers in Su...:
Voted for Little Mac because he is an iconic fighter in the Nintendo library but really Pac-Man and Mega Man are both legends and worthy of being included in this Nintendo based love-a-thon as well. Not sure if you can go wrong with any of the picks. Can't wait to see Mario, Pac-Man, Mega Man and Sonic all on the same screen at 1 time......the Mount Rushmore of video game characters!
Gerbwmu commented on Sorry, Contrary to Rumours the New Nintendo 3D...:
Doesn't really affect me.....but I know there are many on here who would like to import games or because of work/school/etc would like region free so hopefully Nintendo will figure out something that works for them and us
Gerbwmu commented on Yokai Watch 2 Finally Stripped of its Top Posi...:
@SethNintendo - I believe you are right.......and it might do worse then 360.....but at least for a week it will be interesting to see what it does.....after that it can hang out with 360 on the bottom of the list and be the weekly joke of the NLife community
Next week will be very interesting. I wonder what XB1 is going to do? Wii U seems to have 8500 as it's base sales now.
Will XB1 break 100K in it's first week? I would think there are a few people who were waiting for it? Can't imagine it would do much more then that but still should be decent for a week for them anyway. After that it may be in the hundreds.
Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Direct on 4th September to Reveal Mor...:
Thinking something else has to be in this.....how much more can they reveal? Inteviews with personal I guess?
Gerbwmu commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:
A current rumor says the new 3DS won't be region locked.........of course its a rumor with little backing behind it. The same rumor says changes are coming to the NNID too......
Gerbwmu commented on Project: Nintendo 64x64:
Darn you NintendoLife......I seen the headline and news and thought Nintendo had announced something concerning either VC or remakes........now I'm gonna have to return to my drinking this holiday afternoon
Gerbwmu commented on Review: Life Force (Wii U eShop / NES):
Great and fun shooter. Playing this 2 player is a blast and leads to lots of name calling, swearing, controller throwing and ends of friendships
Gerbwmu commented on Wii U Shooter Splatoon Almost Starred Mario As...:
@Prof_Clayton - A FPS Mario Paintball would be a blast.......hitting Mario between the eyes using Bowser seems like poetic justice.......not sure what kind of single player mode they could do with that but still sounds like fun.
Gerbwmu commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:
Casuals......or what ever you prefer to call them are the one's who keep the hobby profitable for the developers/publishers/hardware makers. If they aren't around then you are going to see a huge decline in who operates in this business. They also make it possible for more obscure games to be released by the major publishers. If you are making profit then you are more likely to allow a project that maybe a loser financially in the long run but will offer good publicity for your loyal customer base.
Do I like some of the stuff that is being pushed in the gaming market. No but if it helps fund the next game I do want to play then please keep releasing Nintendogs (never played the game so I can't really say if it's bad) or what ever else you can to keep your profit varied and the games that I want coming.
Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8's Diverse DLC Sets...:
It doesn't matter to me which direction they go. The fun is not in the characters but in the tracks and the gameplay. From that perspective, I think expanding the roster would allow for more varied tracks.
I'm getting the DLC because the additional tracks will add to the variety but I never stopped playing any of the others so really it isn't needed.....but it will be fun.
