Well crap. Could have sworn I read elsewhere that the WiiU would be the same as the 3DS version, like how Mighty Switch Force 2 was ported to the WiiU, no HD enhancements. So I picked it up for the 3DS. And of course, it's Shantae, so I'll double dip with no discount



hcfwesker commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Bidding Closes...:

Did any of the bidders realize he just joined the day he put the item up for auction. I don't care how rare something is, would never bid that high for a seller with a 0 rating lol. The buyer seems legit, but the actual seller may be a different story.



hcfwesker commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

Pre-ordered Smash WiiU on the eShop, but knew the GC Adapter would be under shipped. Preordered it from my local gamestop, and got it on release day.
There is a temporary alternative. The wired Fight Pad from PDP. A GC controller that plugs into your wiimote. Not ideal, I know, but it does work good and could hold some over until more reasonably priced stock is available.

@IxC Same here. I've played through Bayo 1 before, but decided to start from scratch, and it';s very much worth it :) The Nintendo costumes are done wonderfully, which is the treat. They're not just skins in the gameplay, but also integrated in the cinematics as well.



hcfwesker commented on Bayonetta 2 Demo Now Live In The European Wii ...:

Duuuude! I've played Bayo 1, so I knew what to expect. But my heart is still racing at how non stop adrenaline action, visually stunning, and epically cinematic this game is, and just a 4-7 minute playable demo. Wow, and more wow! This is how you do a demo. Cannot wait , 2 more weeks!

And they know Resident Evil 7 will be a disaster after the hatred for RE6 ... reason they're doing the RE1 HD release, that's a guarantee sell to get the core RE fans somewhat back in their good graces for RE7 and Revelations 2

done with Capcom. Give me MH4U on Wiiu or no.



hcfwesker commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

Still holding out hope. It was given a name "Fatal Frame" in a japanese stream, where the only region the series is called Fatal Frame is North America. Of course, Nintendo could have shut this down, themselves. Tecmo wants to release this in all regions, but Nintendo makes the silly decisions not to.



hcfwesker commented on Koei Tecmo Europe All But Confirms Fatal Frame...:

WTF was the point of obtaining exclusivity of the series if you were never even going to use the license to it's full potential. Survival Horror id dead. FF is the ONLY series that has stuck to it's original formula throughout the series. That's why it's unique to the genre and fans WANT it. But, Relase in Japan only, where the region is dominated with handheld gaming; and those piss poor sales will dictate that we don't get it. Bravo, Nintendo. You made your Smash 3DS to compensate for the Japan region and portable console market, while gimping the WiiU version in the process. And, now THIS. You have no clue what gamers want.

@Ichiban I'm in the same boat as you. Told everyone I knew if Nintendo pulled another FF4 with FF5, I'm done. Smahs Bros WiiU will most likely be my last Nintendo purchase. It was a good 28 years. I just cannot keep defending this dumb decisions, one after another, being blinded my nostalgia and faith I had in the company.

Oh, Homebrew, where art thou?



hcfwesker commented on Giana Sisters 2 In Development, Could Be Comin...:

Guess I'm in the minority here that really enjoyed the first game and can't recommend it enough. But, I play consoles games on a TV screen, not a small gamepad screen ... so a patch for that was never a concern for me. Really hope we do get the sequel.



hcfwesker commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

Here's my thing on this. Ice Climbers were my 2nd favorite character to use in Brawl, and no I don't use chain grabs. When the full Smash4 roster was revealed last week and no ICs was confirmed ... I never had a reaction to it, and was fine with it. I moved on and was ready and hyped for Smash WiiU, as I have been this entire time. But with this news about WHY they were cut (and the fact they WERE NOT going to be originally cut because they were tested on the WiiU version) is what has me, and many others, disappointed in this news. It is a slap in the face to those who were mostly looking forward to the console version. It's not about just 1 character getting cut. It's about what decisions have been made to satisfy the 3DS version, that the console version must now endure. I'll get the game, yes, and I'll enjoy the game. But my hype isn't the same anymore after reading this news.
And, having exclusive characters for each game would have been better, especially for tournament players. If one character is found broken, like MK in brawl, then both consoles have to deal with that. You'll now see 2 games with the same character uses and characters winning all tournaments, based on a tier list; when each game could have been unique with just a few exclusive characters. I dare say, you won't see many core smash players using the 3DS game much once the WiiU version arrives.
A majority of us never planned on getting Smash 3DS, but almost feel forced to just because it releases a couple/few months earlier that the WiiU version, and we just don't want to be left out.



hcfwesker commented on Weirdness: Playing as Peach Online is Triggeri...:

@WiiUExposed Peach is different, in that Links projectiles are consistent ... Peach can pull random items that are normally available for others when items are turned on, she does even with items turned off. These bans probably don't happen until a beam sword, bomb, or mr saturn is pulled out and used.



hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Confirms Week Two Details for Super S...:

For some reason, I see the "Tap Here To Purchase" button on everything except the Zelda OoA and Zelda OoS games. Those are the 2 games I want, yet it won't let me purchase them, my eShop account is maxed out so not a money issue, and I see the options for other, more expensive games



hcfwesker commented on This New Fatal Frame Trailer Highlights the Ga...:

@AVahne HomeBew has been our only salvation to play FF games on the Wii, in the States. If Nintendo doesn't want my money, then I don't have any other choice. Though, I feel it may have a better chance because if they do localize it for Europe (english translation), they can just localize it for the eShop in the States (no need to make discs, cases, etc if that was "really" the excuse back then.



hcfwesker commented on This New Fatal Frame Trailer Highlights the Ga...:

@Peach64 Have you ever played a Fatal Frame game? When I first saw the GamePad's functionality revealed for the system, I immediately thought of Fatal Frame. I must have made at least 10 posts on this site since the WiiU's release talking about how the GaemPad was made for Fatal Frame.



hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Direct on 4th September to Reveal Mor...:

Have Bayonetta 1 available after the Direct ends. So those that never played the original have a chance before the new game releases. Then whatever the price is ($10-$20) have that amount discounted off the price Bayo2, for those who bought Bayo1, when it releases.



hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (North America):

Very smart move to give Disney Infinity away to try and gain more attention for their new game and toy lineup. They know they have more competition coming their way and I respect their attempt to try and convince more try and, eventually, buy their products.



hcfwesker commented on Amazon Opens Pre-Orders For Super Smash Bros. ...:

I've pre-ordered games from Amazon before, and I am an Amazon Prime member ... but unfortunately, everytime my game pre-orders arrive 2-3 days after the release date (this isn't so much an issue but I have to have smash the day it comes out). So, yes MAB, I'm going D4L for this title, and I'll buy the adapter controller combo separately.



hcfwesker commented on Video: The Latest Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Tr...:

The problem is the VIDEO ADS on this site, over to the right. Here I am watching this video, then blaring in the background is flashback videos of justin timberlake and watch mojo ads, toothpaste challenge swap, and junk ... then my browser freezes. This is getting old nintendo life



hcfwesker commented on You Won't Be Able To Cross Swords Online In Hy...:

I've never liked DW games. They're repetitive hack n slash games, in my opinion, when I played them. But throw in Zelda atmosphere and references, and you got me intrigued. Still I know it would get repetitive after so long so don't plan on purchasing it ... but then I hear a rumor about the possibility of a co-op online mode that I can play with friends ( while chatting on skype cause WiiU mic sux ). Ok, I'm sold, this could be a fun game to kill some time with friends while randomly hack n slashing through zelda lore. Take that away and you take away my interest in the game.

That's my honest opinion, and I'm sure many others feel the same way. It's not that people demand online play in every game, but some of us can ONLY play co-op games through online modes. And, for a game I'm interested in from the very beginning, this wouldn't bother me, at all. Unfortunately, for me to warrant purchasing THIS game, the online co-op mode was a necessity. I'll wait for further details on this to be revealed but that's the gist of it.



hcfwesker commented on This Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Box Art May Get...:

@JaxonH ditto on this! I played the demo and hated the game based on it. Then took a chance with the capcom sale and i have clocked in almost 800 hours since february this year, into the game. Best purchase on WiiU by far!

As far as MH4U goes, Im not gonna be thrilled with the transition to 3DS, from WiiU, but getting it anyways because I know I'll easily sink in another several hundred hours into it. Just hoping a WiiU version does come later down the road and we can transfer save files again :)



hcfwesker commented on Cross-Buy is Now a Thing on Nintendo Platforms:

@Lobster normally I sway away from making 'clickbait' posts as some do, but this time I agree 100%. It's not just the misleading title and subtext under the title ... but why oh why did they decide to use that picture for the article. Luckily I didn't get my hopes up and knew there was a catch, cause this is big news and wouldn't have just randomly shown up and been available without a notice beforehand. But yeah, NL, the way this article was labeled and dressed up is not what I normally expect from you guys.



hcfwesker commented on Eiji Aonuma Vows to Reduce Hand-Holding in Fut...:

The very first thing I had to do was turn the "dousing" system off in Skyward Sword. I don't mind an opening tutorial of some sorts ... but having it throughout the game is not what I want in Zelda games. You don't get that feeling of being wrapped up in the games world if you're being directed where to go the entire time. Plus I don't pay $50-60 for a game to play follow the leader.

This is great news for us exploration/adventure puzzle gamers.
