Gerbwmu commented on The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Still Has a TBC R...:

It is entirely possible that Zelda will make it to both Wii U and NX. I guess it depends on how far along NX really is. Though they could easily release it for Wii U next Summer and then NX in 2017.....worked well for Sony and The Last of Us.

At this point every thing about NX is a guess though. Could be a gamepad 2.0 that allows you to play 3DS games through your Wii U in upscaled HD.



Gerbwmu commented on Yo-Kai Watch Busters and 3DS Continue to Rule ...:

2 full months of increased hardware sales for Wii U off the back of Splatoon. I wonder what could have been if Splatoon and Mario Maker were launch titles for Wii U. I have a feeling Mario Maker will sell more hardware then is expected.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Download: 30th July (Europe):

No VC at all means a surprise is on the way? What could Nintendo be up too. Or I'm wrong and they just didnt have anything ready VC wise this week for NoE.

I'm guessing a Thursday morning Direct that will include some sort of surprise VC release. Maybe Mother 3?



Gerbwmu commented on Splatoon's Big Update is Coming on 6th August:

New levels up to 50 and S+ ranking, 2 new weapon types and over 40 different weapons and types of gear I think is the gist of the press release. Also the ability to make your own team of friends for ranked battle vs other random teams and the all important friends lobby for NLife tourneys.

I wonder if we will see a small spike in sales of Wii U's and Splatoon for the update?



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo TVii Service Ends In North America On...:

TVii seemed incomplete to me and I just didn't use it which is probably why 3 years later it is shutting down. I have a feeling most people never even tried it.

The universal remote is awesome though. So glad they included that. Between my phone and the gamepad, I always have a remote with me.

Rabble Rabble Rabble grrr grrr grrr........
The clan thing actually seems quite interesting but I dont see myself purchasing this game. I just dont get enough time by myself to play games like this and XCX is gonna take all of the time I have when it arrives



Gerbwmu commented on Talking Point: Assessing the Odds of Super Mar...:

I think it will push a decent amount of hardware between release and the holidays. I actually think Nintendo will be within spitting distance of there FY goal of 3.4 mill Wii U's too. I'm hopeful that a new price point of $274.99 will be unvailed for this release and we will see a lot of Black Friday bundles for $200 to $250. If I was the incoming president of Nintendo, I'd push sales at the expense of profit for what's left of this year. Easy to explain that lack of profits was due to transition and he next year looks so much better...... (because we cut dead inventory and took on additional expenses we could have deferred , mumbled under breath)



Gerbwmu commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Has Limited Impact in Jap...:

Sales of Wii U still over 5 figures. Splatoon has really done well in Japan and is more or less responsible for an extra 40,000 consoles being sold? Assuming 7K was a rough average per week. Does the Wii U have enough releases to keep Japan sales in 5 figures until the holiday bump?



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

@rjejr - I like to think of all the awesome things I'd have if I won the lotto......then I realize winning the lotto would probably lead me to bankruptcy and the NintendoLife community buying lots of awesome gaming products for pennies on the dollar.



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

Well.....time to order Need for Speed I guess. I knew I should have snagged it for $18.99 when I had the chance but I wanted a good SIM racer for my system and pCARS seemed like it would deliver.....then the delays started, and the rumblings and rumors, then statements from SMS assuring that things were progressing well. Too bad in the end. I really wonder what the fate of the Wii U would have been had they gone X86?



Gerbwmu commented on Negative Reception For Devil's Third Is Due To...:

This is not the best piece of NintendoLife journalism.....clearly Itagaki is trying to defend his work and isn't going about it, IMO, the right way, but this article is loaded with attitude that just isn't needed. Write an editorial if you wanna call out his "pompous attitude".

Still, from what I've seen, there are some hiccups in the coding that draw away from the experience and that has nothing to do with player skill.



Gerbwmu commented on Obituary: Satoru Iwata:

Condolences and prayers to his family and friends. 55 is too young to leave this earth.

On a personal note I will miss his unique and humorous presence in the directs and all things Nintendo related.



Gerbwmu commented on Devil's Third Will Be Released In North Americ...:

I think, less the quality, and more about the content of the game is why NoA is trying to distance itself from the game. Makes no difference who releases it as long as it gets released and it probably saves Nintendo a few headaches. Also strengthens an existing relationship by throwing some free business and money at a gaming partner



Gerbwmu commented on Ubisoft's Former Wii U Exclusive ZombiU Confir...:

I just dont see this selling unless they put a ton of work into remaking it. The best parts of the game were because of the gamepad.

I wonder what Ubi will say when this fails to sell as much on XB1 and PS4 as it did on Wii U?



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Taking to the Skies for a Final Look ...:

@Kirk - I'm not invested enough in the series (or any series) to worry about Nintendo changing the ship. I just buy and play the games I think look fun.

I do understand if the animations don't match though. That would be lazy programming on Nintendo's part. This is also an E3 build so things can change. If they don't adjust the forward facing guns or adjust the Arwing in some manner to make it make sense then I will agree with you on that?

Being able to shoot in any direction in a shoot em up however goes back to at least Ikari Warriors and probably early then that so I have to disagree about that.



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Taking to the Skies for a Final Look ...:

@Kirk - here is why I am excited for the controls. I love the gyro controls in Splatoon and I see the promise in it, Especially for co-op play. This is where duel gamepad support could have been great. Some sort of master ship with 2 gunner turrets, each with a gamepad while your buddy uses a pro controller to fly the ship. But the system has sold too poorly for Nintendo to waste resources on duel support.

You may think the controls are a curse upon gaming....but that is your opinion, I for 1 am very excited for the cockpit view and ability to aim more then the direction of the ship



Gerbwmu commented on Feature: Taking to the Skies for a Final Look ...:

Seems like a StarFox game I will like. I do think local and online multiplayer is a must though. Hopefully they decide to do that before release.

This also makes me wish another Rogue Squadron could be made. Duel Gamepad support so you could play 3 player co-op. 2 gunners and a pilot. So many great uses of the gamepad that will never be.



Gerbwmu commented on Nintendo Seeks Improvement at E3 2016, Though ...:

If Nintendo sticks to this trend then E3 next year will be loaded with content because we wont have seen it all before. The biggest issue this year was most of what they showed, we have known about for what feela like years and the few surprises were smaller or spin off games. What they cant do is show us all their cards through out the year in directs and then expect E3 to be well received with little new content



Gerbwmu commented on Blast Ball is Actually the Tutorial in Metroid...:

Rabble rabble rabble moan moan moan

Remember the horrible reaction to Hyrule bout the severe disappoint in Mario 3D World right after E3. The list of angry Nintendo fanbase reactions then total love and acceptance upon release is too long to list. Mario Sunshine and Luigi's Mansion were the worse games ever conceived when announced. How dare Nintendo try and teach me about pollution. Most of you are probably too young to remember that though. Might as well add SF Zero to that too.....what people say looks like a PS2 game will be hailed as a glorious HD Star Fox with beautiful settings and amazing game play.

I'm joining @BLPs in a drink or 7.



Gerbwmu commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Asks for Fan Trust With Metro...:

What if this game helps define why and what happens in the next Metroid game. Maybe this is a start of a new segment where there are Samus Prime games that offer the isolation and exploration of war torn planets destroyed by the Federation Force Wars. But why wait on details when I can be angry for no reason now. The laughable part.....all of 22,000 people have signed the petition, and half of those are probably Nintendo hating trolls. I could start a petition to change Friday to Fartday and get more signatures



Gerbwmu commented on Fire Emblem Fates Storms to Number One in Japan:

Splatoon is doing very well for Nintendo in Japan. It seems to be the game that should have launched with the Wii U.

Can't wait to see how Fates does for the long term. Maybe I will see another FE console version.



Gerbwmu commented on Rumour: Former Rare Composer David Wise Is Wor...:

@1wiierdguy - some of the development teams have to be working on NX titles.....but I do think Nintendo has a few surprises for Wii U games. It wouldn't surprise me to see 3 or 4 exclusive 3rd party games make their way to Wii U to help fill out the next few years.
