Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 30th October (North America):

Lots of options and more goodies coming next week. Hopefully this will become the norm. Nice to see such a lengthy list of items to choose from, but WHERE IS MY FIRE EMBLEM GBA......Europe is sooooooooo lucky......

sorry I just wanted to join in the fun of complaining, really this is a stellar week and seems like we have a run of about a month or more of pretty good quality VC/eShop titles



Gerbwmu commented on Activision Retail Titles Are Coming To The Wii...:

I wouldn't mind if some 3rd party games came as eShop only titles. It would be cheaper for the publisher and still allow them to support the system. Maybe this is Activision's way of testing the waters so to speak........personally I'd love to see Activision release some of their great Atari games on VC......come on River Raid and Megamania!



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

All I really want is for it to be a critical and commercial success. Lets see a 2nd Gamespot 10 for Nintendo in basically a months time and a general out cry that everyone should own the game followed by great holiday sales.



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

I think if Platinum manages another highly rated game on Wii U before the end of it's life cycle that would put them on a level few developers get to for a single console. As far as Platinum in general.....they already have a great history overall and probably don't get the sales they deserve but that's typical for most games I like.



Gerbwmu commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

The gameplay is the thing.....get it close to TecmoBowl or NFL Blitz and it will be fun no matter the visuals.....but this is a small 1st time developer with presumably little capital to work with so I'm not expecting much



Gerbwmu commented on Video: We Tackle the Legendary Hyrule Warriors...:

With the NA numbers at 190K and knowing 100K physical sales in seems highly likely that this is up over 400K in sales which to be honest shocks me. I wonder if the sales will push them to try another crossover in the series....maybe a Fire Emblem Warriors?



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

The longer they talk about and delay this game the less chance I will end up buying it. I'd love a realistic racer but 2015 is loaded with other games I want. Hopefully they get this out for Wii U in March as well.....if not they may lose a sale from me. Too many other games I'm more interested in with 2015 release dates



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Impact Winter looks interesting but I'm not backing anything I'm not guarenteed to get on Wii U if it reaches the goal. If I'm going to back something I want to be able to have the Wii U version as a reward.

The N64 handheld kit seems interesting.....I wonder if you could use the kit to build a N64 arcade cabinet?



Gerbwmu commented on Review: Nobunaga's Ambition (Wii U eShop / Sup...:

This looks like a game I'd enjoy....but I thought that about Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV and I can't figure that one out so I've never played it. Maybe I should figure out the game I have 1st and then consider buying this one?



Gerbwmu commented on Preview: Bat-Swinging into Action in LEGO Batm...:

Lego City Undercover 2 would be a day 1 purchase for me. The 1st was an amazingly entertaining game to play and well over a year later it still gets regular run on my Wii U. This is probably fun too, most Lego games are, but Marvel is an Xmas gift for my oldest so at best this maybe a Christmas Gift next year



Gerbwmu commented on Bayonetta 2 in North America Comes With a Rath...:

I've decided to buy this as soon as I can get to a store and pick it up. I have no idea when I will be able to play, lack of time, etc, but I want to support good games so hopefully this is an investment into more Wii U games and choices. Plus eventually I'll get to have fun playing 2 games.

@tzahn - There is never a wrong time to break out into that song!



Gerbwmu commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

I wonder if this is a response to get away from the royalties Nintendo is paying on the original 3DS or is this an upgrade to allow the 3DS to continue selling until they unify the handheld and console into one basic option for both?



Gerbwmu commented on Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow to Complete GBA Tr...:

@TwilightV - I'm sure Nintendo advised them to release them on a certain date. My guess is with Bayonetta 2 arriving the week after and maybe a big Nintendo based VC week on the 30th they probably didn't want them all competeing for the week's dollars. I guess we will see.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo 64x64: WCW/nWo Revenge:

These games are still the best wrestling games created. I don't understand why we haven't had a return to this style yet. Someone needs to recreate these games on the modern consoles in some form. Again another game that got played for hours in epic 4 man matches that often times needed pausing to rest cramped and tired hands.



Gerbwmu commented on Video: Here Are Some Fun Facts About The Might...:

I liked my GameCube but it was the first Nintendo console that I mostly played alone. Probably more because of age and circumstances then anything else, but because of that it doesn't reach the same level to me as N64. Still a ton of great games that I'm glad I got to play.



Gerbwmu commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Release Dates Conf...:

I hope the advertising for Smash U is even better then for Smash 3DS. As someone who doesn't watch much TV, I've seen a ton of commercials for the 3DS Smash on a variety of channels. If Nintendo goes all out for the Wii U version.....I could see a huge Holiday for the U.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo 64x64: Turok 2:

Loved this game. We played a lot of the Monkey Tag multiplayer in college. The cerebral bore was torturous. The graphics at the time were far as consoles go anyway.



Gerbwmu commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Release Dates Conf...:

Hmmmmmm.......I've never been big into Smash.....but if they make some announcements for Wii U VC or have another reason to get the controller, I may think of getting the packaged deal. I wouldn't mind having an extra GC controller around. Mine are starting to feel a little loose. Good news all around though for NA and at least a date for everyone else on Smash U. Maybe Europe will get the next Nintendo block buster early to even things out a little. Poor Australia always seems to be the black sheep of the Nintendo Family.....but the New 3DS arriving their in a few weeks should be an olive branch of peace so to speak.



Gerbwmu commented on Rumour: Nintendo Removed Tharja From Super Sma...:

@SamirMalik - I'm slowly playing through my 2nd time so maybe I will feel different about her character when I finish this time (and the game in general). The characters/story in Awakening have never caught my interest though so maybe she can be a standout in what I consider a lesser FE game.



Gerbwmu commented on Rumour: Nintendo Removed Tharja From Super Sma...:

She seems like a minor character to include as a trophy in SSB. I never got into awakening the way I did other FE though so maybe I'm missing something. I guess they could also be thinking of doing a follow up to Awakening using her the same way they used Sothe in Radiant Dawn?



Gerbwmu commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

Seems like it is still open for debate. Was more of a casual I don't know then an out right NO. Wii U needs games though so maybe Nintendo will convince them to consider a Western release. Shame if it doesn't make it because this looked like another unique game that actually used the gamepad.
