grumblebuzzz commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

Lots of negativity in the comments section. This is what Mario fans who grew up on these 2D games have been waiting decades for. I guess if your first game was Mario Sunshine it could seem pretty "meh", but don't poo poo something that a lot of other people REALLY want just because it isn't to your taste.

grumblebuzzz commented on Mario Memories: Conquering the First Level in ...:

I remember playing SMB when it was the big, hot thing at the moment (*cough, sputter "Back in my day..."). I was like 7-8 years old and saw it for the first time at a friend's house and was like "WOAH! Let me try!" I remember making it to 1-4, Game Over'ing and thinking that I had made it almost to the end of the game. It was only when I got a Nintendo with SMB (and Duck Hunt) for Christmas the same year that I learned right away that our princess is usually in another castle (and that Nintendo games were much longer and more complex than Atari games).

@OorWullie I think with Splatoon it would be fine to have the map able to be toggled on and off the TV screen with a button. The whole "it wouldn't work without the gamepad" argument doesn't make sense to me. The parts when you have to look away from the TV to touch the gamepad screen (super jumping and ink striking) have always felt clunky to me anyway because that leaves the player defenseless while they look away; not something you really want to happen in a shooter.

I just feel like the gamepad was ultimately pointless and apparently so did many developers (including Nintendo themselves in the bigger scope of things — Tropical Freeze literally made the screen black if you weren't playing off-TV). They could have done the same thing by having the 3DS as an intergratable controller.

I find it funny that people are like "I'm picking up this one, I'm picking up that one." How are you going to buy something you'll never see unless you have inside connections at stores to know when they stock and how many will be stocked?

I just want the Splatoon Amiibos to be restocked. Found an Inkling boy at Best Buy a few days after launch and have never seen another in a store again. Those Smash Amiibos are fine and all, but there's actual content locked behind the Splatoon figures so they should be readily available.

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

It would have moved a few systems if it had launched with the console, for sure, as would have Splatoon, but Nintendo didn't play their cards right with the Wii U at all so we're getting all the good games now after they've already announced a successor for next year.

grumblebuzzz commented on First Impressions: Getting Cosy With Animal Cr...:

Still on the fence. The negatives expressed about this game are pretty big negatives, in my opinion. If there are no constraints or consequences for failure, this could become boring very quickly. Price is also an issue for me: I don't see myself spending $39.99 on this game so I'm interested to see how Nintendo prices it. It honestly sounds and looks kind of like a $15-20 eShop title to me.

I don't think the battles need to be longer either. They're pretty much the perfect length for the way the game is set up now; however, if they ever added local multiplayer in a future edition, I'd like to be able to customize how long I play with friends, which mode we play in, and which stage we play on.

grumblebuzzz commented on Nintendo Download: 9th July (North America):

@JudgeMethos I do! It's actually my favorite of the series. And I've never had the opportunity to play it all brightly-lit and crisp on a television set; however, the rest of the world has for months now. You'd think with how angry fans were about Federation Force that Nintendo would be like "Here's Zero Mission! We're sorry!" but it's obvious that they could give two flying figs about Metroid in general.

I don't care about online co-op soccer; I care about Metroid. Do not want and no amount of sugarcoating and chiding is going to make me buy this. Also, I am not being "entitled", "bratty", "spoiled", or whatever in my decision not to buy it either. I am a huge fan of the Metroid series and this is NOT a game for me.

grumblebuzzz commented on Nintendo Confirms Splatoon Tower Mode Release ...:

I seriously think that if Wii U had launched with Splatoon, Smash Bros, and Mario Kart 8, Nintendo's current home console fortunes might be very different right now. All three games are the crowning jewels on the platform, but Splatoon might take the win. It's been an absolute joy to play and be a part of. Some people complain about the "drip fed" modes and weapons, but for me it keeps me excited and makes me feel like these releases are more like "events."

grumblebuzzz commented on Review: Don't Starve: Giant Edition (Wii U eShop):

I agree with the reviewer: this is a solid game and I like it a lot, but I'm a little disappointed with the gamepad implementation. The menus are screaming for touch support, but all you can do is move the map around, which is pretty pointless. Also the off-TV function makes the picture so muddy that you can barely see or read anything.
