Gerbwmu commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

Yeah.....I see no issues with their tweet. Isn't that the idea behind their business? Find stuff here you can't find anywhere else, sell stuff here for more because you find people who want it and are willing to pay more to get it.

I realize there are fans who would like access to the pre orders and we all hate scalpers, unless we are fortune enough to buy something that we can sell for 5 times the price, but I think we are being overly emotional if we condemn eBay for promoting their business.

Excited to see what is in the 2nd DLC pack. Seems like a Direct has too be coming soon. Many releases this month and a pretty packed schedule of Nintendo published content coming the rest of the year. I expect a Direct on a regular basis this year.

Gerbwmu commented on Feature: A Summary of the Xenoblade Chronicles...:

@RadicalYoseph - that's possible. I was thinking the end of this game maybe linked to the space station universe creation with a sequel following before it ties in to Xenoblade. It could just as easily be the world created in the ending as well.....or not related in any form. Guess we will find out.

@rjejr - The fact that they announced localization immediately after the game was announced tells me they are learning a little bit. It seems like some of the choices being made lately are pushing toward what the "internet crowd" wants. We shall see.

I could see them doing a limited run of special bundles through GameStop. I think if they announced that it would guarantee it sell out....even though most would be in the hands of scalpers. That might be the best way to push a few million consoles honestly. Limited special edition Splatoon bundle at Best Buy. Limited special edition XCX bundle at GameStop. Limited special edition Mario Maker bundle at Target. Scalpers would be all over them.

This should push a decent amount of Wii U's in Japan. I'd like to see something like this for the west too. There are a group of people waiting for this game in order to get a Wii U and a bundle like this would help push a few more sales I'm sure.

I'm hoping XCX makes it to the US by September!

Gerbwmu commented on Video: You NEED To Play Metroid Prime Trilogy:

Ok.....quick question for everyone who has played this to death. Is the - button for the scanner weird to get use to. I have a hard time switching from the gun and I assume I'm missing something. Hold it down.....hit z while tapping the minus button? Or is it just finicky

FE v SMT is at least still on the list....even if it is TBD at least it is still there. Also Devils Third is listed for a release in Europe and NA for 2015 but TBD in Japan. I wonder if they are planning on releasing it about the same time COD comes out as the Nintendo alternative?

Gerbwmu commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

I bought Punch Out today cause I never played it and for $10 why not. NES and SNES are amazing so I'm sure it is well worth my money.

I also plan on getting Metroid Prime because I haven't played any of them so again another good deal for me.

I would like Radiant Dawn....I own it but CD is scratched up from the millions of times I've played it.....and kids...they ruin every thing, but that is what happens when quarters are put into the Wii.

Pandora's Tower, Last Story, and Xenoblade would be nice...I have 2 of 3 but RPG's like that are good digital titles to wander back to in 10 years.

Still I'd rather see N64 and GameCube games make it to VC 1st but I'm beginning to think those won't make it this generation. Seems like maybe they are waiting for the next home console to open up the eShop a little more.

Gerbwmu commented on Former Nintendo Indie Champion Discusses the C...:

The stats for the eShop are skewed too. I assume a lot of what they are using to determine who is buying what comes from NClub surveys. In that case everything I've bought shows Male and 37 as the buyer not because they are all for me but because that is my profile and I'm bad for their marketing because I'm not using multiple profiles when answering surveys.

Gerbwmu commented on Club Nintendo Rewards are Updated for Its Fina...:

I may grab Super Metroid if i don't already have it. ...pretty sure I do. I have the rest though for the home console and I just don't play my 3DS enough to use the points on it just yet.. I'm gonna wait and see what else comes and make my decisions closer to June. If nothing else my nephew is gonna get a few free games for his Wii U.

Gerbwmu commented on Club Nintendo to Close, With Replacement Loyal...:

@MoonKnight7 - based on what I read on the Club Nintendo website, it seems all coin codes will no longer be of use once the program is shut down and the new program will work differently.

I have a few games I was waiting on registering until next club year but I'm going put in the codes and hope I can find enough games that I don't have to download before the program dies.

RIP Club Nintendo......Thanks for all the free games!

Gerbwmu commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 14t...:

Oh my god oh my god oh my god oh my god the direct is starting off with FE v SMT.....wait it's a new FE for Wii U..........oh its just for 3DS.........deepest of depression.....then I got over it and enjoyed the rest of the Direct.

Feels like we will get a Direct every month if not more. There is so much happening this year for both Wii U and 3DS. Especially with 20-40? Wii games coming to eShop.

Gerbwmu commented on Reaction: Nintendo Direct Went Crazy With Reve...:

I thought it was heavy on 3DS because of the lack of news we have had for it since E3. I think it was a kind of show of force for the handheld.

I think a lot of what we see here on out will be directs dedicated to whatever Wii U game is on the way and even general directs will be heavy on Wii U. It has to be with 10-12 titles arriving by end of 2015 and a slew of Wii game digital releases plus VC and any other surprises.

Wasn't a great but was solid with lots of info....since I'm not much of a handheld gamer the opening Fire Emblem for 3DS did crush me a little though. When it started i was sure we were getting a glimpse of FE v SMT or at least a FE for Wii U........oh well maybe by 2016

Gerbwmu commented on Mario Party 10 Gets It Started With Wii U on 2...:

I'm intrigued by this game. I have never played a Mario Party Title but my boys love Wii U Party so maybe I need to consider this?

By the looks of things....basically we can expect a Wii U game launch about the 20th of every month in 2015. A Wii game added to the eShop most weeks and the normal assortment of random VC games per week?

The Direct was also a little heavy on 3DS (makes sense since the New 3DS is out)......Nintendo trying to show 2015 isn't all about the Wii U I suppose?
