The DLC is great. 8 new tracks that add to the fun that is MK8. 200cc is a great addition too as it changes the tracks just enough to make the challenge feel new.

@Kaze_Memaryu - have characters or vehicles ever been anything other then superficial in Mario Kart. Seems like it is always big and fast, small and quick or medium and balanced. Basically 3 groups and with 8 you can mix and match a little more to tweek it slightly.

@erv - Myles is a better Axl Rose currently then Axl too. At least when I caught Slash in concert a few years ago.

They usually do a wide variety of songs and I would guess Satriani might make an appearance if they truly have the 100's of songs they claim will be part of it. I assume the 1st list of artists is to get a new generation excited for the game knowing they can draw in the former fans closer to release

@erv - If you are referring to the Creed with a different singer that's what they are. Myles Kennedy is the only difference. They don't sound the same but the band members are the same.

If you are speaking of something else then I'm lost?



Gerbwmu commented on Konami Removes Its Listing from the New York S...:

I assume they will sell off the IP if they don't plan on making games anymore? It will be interesting to see where some of the classic franchises go. It's a shame really. For a long time they were one of my favorite game makers.

@PvtOttobot - after all the lawsuits from Courtney Love over Cobain's use in Guitar Hero, I doubt Nirvana is gonna be on this one.

If the guitar was new but they still had the option of using the drums and mic I might consider this but just the guitar, a new one at that, it just doesnt seem like the party game it was before.



Gerbwmu commented on Review: TABLETOP GALLERY (Wii U eShop):

These aren't bad games if you take them at face value. All three are good time wasters best played on the gamepad and are decent educational games for young children for basic math, matching, etc. It is a shame that they dont have a top 10 high score board or some other basic features though as they could be competitive games in that regard



Gerbwmu commented on Video: So, How Fast Is 200cc In Mario Kart 8?:

@mrchills - The Mets were my adopted team when I lived in NY......back to Tigers now that I'm home again.

@rjejr - I did really well in the NLife Tourny when Baby Park and ExciteBike were chosen...the rest was me trying not to come in last. Big Blue got me some points too for some reason.



Gerbwmu commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Problems With Trends and...:

YouTube watch people play video games thing baffles me. The thing is, people who are upset about these policies are the ones who are trying to make money by posting the videos, so it really is hypocritical or a double standard to say why shouldn't I be able to make money off of your stuff in my work with out you interfering.

Nintendo should probably ignore it as the costs of the lawyers probably isn't worth it. That is why most companies "allow" the use of their products in the videos. Not because they are nice and love YouTube but because someone in their finance department said it isn't worth the cost of fighting.



Gerbwmu commented on Best Buy Nabs Exclusive Splatoon Wii U Hardwar...:

They really should have splattered some paint on the console and listed it as a limited edition......would have sold out moments after pre-purchases went on sale. Nintendo might as well use the scalpers for extra income while they can

Enjoy Up seems to be upping their games as of late. This looks like a quality title and Spy Chameleon was excellent.

I really like the arcade cabinet art on the sides of the screen. I wish we could get some actual 80's 90's arcade ports on Wii U.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Highlights Increased US Hardware Sale...:

Sales are bad in comparison to Wii and XB1/PS4 but once again it is an increase year over year which was an increase over the year before. For a dying console that isnt too bad. Expect December sales to be listed as 12.7 million and lifetime to end up around 16-18 mill



Gerbwmu commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

Old guitars won't work with this one and it is guitar only which means it isn't as much of the party game it was before so I'll pass this time. I do think the FMV is interesting though. It could be kinda cool depending on the amount of variations the crowd has. Shame it isnt full band and backwards compatible though.



Gerbwmu commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:

I think this is 1 step closer to having 1 eShop where items purchased will be available to all Nintendo Gaming devices.

I wonder how far away we are from being able to play all the digital 3DS games on the Wii U?



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Splatoon Is a Typically Colourf...:

What it does is add another (hopefully solid) option to the games and genres for the Wii U. There are a good number of people who will sit on the fence and wait for enough of their style of games before they purchase, maybe tgis is the one that pushes them into purchasing. It also adds to the stable of 1 per generation games that will become fan favorites.

I can't wait to see what happens in the next 2 months time. XCX releasing in Japan, Splatoon world wide at end of May. E3 mid June. We will have an idea of Nintendo's grand plan for tgis generation by the end of these 2 months



Gerbwmu commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

Every major Nintendo release is going to sell at least 1 million units at this point. People want games for their Wii U and Splatoon I think qualifies. It will be interesting to see how the year progresses, especially with XCX hitting Japan in a week and this a month later.

I want this game but it probably wont find my home till fall



Gerbwmu commented on Each Splatoon amiibo Will Unlock 20 Special Ch...:

So.... can you scan the Splatoom Amiibos multiple times and get the challenges? For example....can I scan my Amiibo, get the challenges, then use my squids to scan at a friends house to get him the challenges? Just wondering if friends trading around Amiibos is a possibility? Maybe we need to start an Amiibo trading site.

Netflix like subscription?

@edhe PoR & Radiant Dawn would be good as a remastered collection too. They could easily add a few battles before, between, and after if they wanted to expand it as an incentive to repurchase to those of us who have played the originals.



Gerbwmu commented on Video: Check Out Every Fire Emblem Intro So Fa...:

This makes me want a FE collection on my Wii U....but i doubt that will happen.

PoR and Radiant Dawn are my favorites. Fire Emblem 7 is a close second (technically 3rd i guess) then Sacred Stones. Sadly I still don't get the love for's ok but just didnt grab me like the other 4. I must have played them through to the end 10 times each. Im struggling to go back and play FE:A a 2nd time.

I really hope they consider making a Wii U Fire Emblem but it looks like the Atlus RPG cross over is as close as we are going to get this generation



Gerbwmu commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

@NicolausCamp - so you've played this new Fire Emblem already? How was it? Ohhhhh, you haven't? Then how do you know it doesnt have enough on each campaign to justify several releases?

All we know is Nintendo is releasing 2 versions.....lets wait and see what they are like before we conclude if multiple releases are needed or not.



Gerbwmu commented on New Fire Emblem on 3DS Takes Shape as Two Sepa...:

@Dezzy - So this is a better deal then?

Seriously this is awesome, if it is 2 or 3 full and different games, then as a FE fan why would you be mad? I think we are basing our judgement on an old GBA title and at this point it is too early to make that kind of comparison.



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Turns to Classics, DLC...:

The Directs are marketing tools for Nintendo customers. I'm not really sure why the expectations are so high going into them.....other then rampant speculation and hoping for the fun of dreaming, but that shouldn't cloud your vision about what reality will be.
E3 is two months away. They are not going to go crazy with new reveals now because E3 is the big event that even non gamers pay attention too and all the major announcements will be saved for that.



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 1st...:

I liked the Direct. It provided a lot of good news for many different types of Nintendo fans and left a little intrigue. We can all speculate about Mother 3 coming in June with the release of Smash DLC. We still don't know what Retro and Level 5 are doing. Intelligent Systems seems to have little to do with SMT v FE so what are they working on for Wii U? For no general 3rd party support it looks like a number of Wii U exclusives will arrive fall and Winter. Fatal Frame, Rodao Sky Soldier, Devils 3rd and whatever else is unknown. E3 will have a lot of rumors and speculation starting.......NOW!
