@Ryno Just to be clear, I agree with you on 3rd Parties not coming back, or at least never selling good on any new Nintendo console ever again. But an example, is South Park ( which sold more versions than the PS1, because N64 version came out a year earlier) .... which is the same issue WiiU faced with 3rd party inferior ports that were a year old.
But I had to look far and wide for that example lol



hcfwesker commented on Hands On: Blast Ball Brings Crude Button Mashi...:

@GraveLordXD Besides all the thing you listed, which I agree on; my biggest gripe was the lack of exploration and that feeling of discovering hidden items. Hidden items were located on maps with a shiny orb that lead you straight to them ( and no option to turn this off), all you had to do was figure out if you use a missile or a bomb ... pathetic.

@ikki5 "Wait... OOT the same week as Europe? I was expecting OOT to come out 3-6 months from now since they got it this week."

Seems Mario & Zelda games are immune to this trend. Fans of other series are left to rot while waiting

"We're taking our great IP and transforming them and making them new again — making them fresh and appealing for the fan who feels they know the franchise."

Basically, "we're abandoning the fanbase that made these series popular, and casting a wider net to try and attract casual/core audiences."

It's really disheartening. Because the games you wanted and expected on Wii U will be pushed back to give NX a more respectable launch library. A system not even 3 years old already being phased. Unless there is a Metroid Prime 4 at launch, with a reasonable console price; I will wait for the inevitable price drop less than a year later. And I've been a day console buyer with nintendo since SNES, been with N since 1986. The last couple gen's have been frustrating with Nintendo. There have been great games, but the amount of disappointments far outweigh that.
Hoping for the best, but been doing that since the Gamecube. Still holding out hope they're keeping Retro & Metroid Prime 4 a secret for a this long until a soon to be aired Nintendo Direct to shut us all up. lol



hcfwesker commented on Review: Never Alone (Wii U eShop):

Was really looking forward to this. Now, all I can look forward to are the glitch mocking posts that will flood miiverse when it releases. Hopefully patches come through and fix many of the issues.



hcfwesker commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Was excited for amiibo in the beginning, but really don't care for it anymore; especially how almost every 1st party game now is including amiibo locked content and you can't even find the specific amiibo anywhere. 30 years I've been with Nintendo, and sadly after this years E3 disaster I'm about ready to call it quits. The only redeeming Wii U title, for me this past year as been the localization of Fatal Frame, so that's keeping me stringin along in the meantime.



hcfwesker commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

What baffles me the most, is you have Hyrule Warriors, which was a spinoff game that includes almost every major character from all the zelda games. But they knew not to have "Legend of Zelda" in the title ... to not confuse fans and to keep it out of the core series. And yet here is Nintendo, slapping Metroid Prime on this game without a second glance.



hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (Europe):

Will wait for Splatoon to actually be finished before paying full price. The inability to make lobbies with friends at launch is unacceptable. Plus, between now and August I'm sure Amazon will have a price drop.



hcfwesker commented on Former Castlevania Producer Koji Igarashi's Ki...:

What limitations could a 2.5D game pose on the Wii U. LOL. Sounds like even though they've gone independent, they're playing it AAA safe. Not interested, anymore if not coming to Nintendo. Youtube LP it is, I suppose.



hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Outlines Splatoon's Free Post-Launch ...:

Plan on getting this, but not a Day 1 purchase anymore. I have no fun playing against random people I don't know or can't talk to. There are people out there who only buy these games with the intention to ruin the online experience for others. So when the "friend lobbies" feature gets released, that's when I'll most likely buy the game.
Voice chat is not an issue, since my friends and I all use skype when playing online games with each other.



hcfwesker commented on Meme Run Disappears from the Wii U eShop:

I never cared for the games or the studio behind them. What bothered me most was this guy was a verified user account on miiverse, and the idiotic and trolling posts he made in attempts to promote his games on the service.



hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (North America):

@BRAINFOX oh I know, I've done my research. Many people are complaining on capcomunity's site, and not a single response from anyone. EU can buy the themes, we can't. And it sux MH4U N3DS bundles didnt even get the option for the free one. Nintendo's excuse for that is they got the bundle $10 cheaper lmao. Bundles are suppose to be cheaper than buying separately to begin with ... makes no sense



hcfwesker commented on Meta Knight amiibo Hits Best Buy in US on 20th...:

I thought the whole point of exclusivity to a store was getting customers INTO your store. Kind of defeats the purpose when you sell them all online with pre-orders.
@sinalefa looking around eBay, this is almost what I'm tempted to do. Just buy the rare ones from overseas. I'm not a fan of pre-ordering, I like going to stores on release day and beating the crowds. But the way amiibo is being handled there is just no hope.



hcfwesker commented on New 3DS HOME Themes Confirmed for Majora's Mas...:

@Warruz Free downloads count as purchases off the eShop. Even with the DDP on the Wii U, any free DL code you used for a free game got you the DDP rewards ( which infact made it count as if you purchased the game even though it was free). So I'm sure it's no different with pre-installed games.
