Obviously SMB3 just to complete the mario collection for Wiiu. I just read the interview for Flowerworks HD and whether its my type of game or not I'll check it out for that sale price and Im always down to support Nintendo fans turned developers.

We all know how this is going to go down for WiiU. It'll finally release winter 2014 / early 2015 for WiiU at full $60 retail price, no DLC available at all .... while all other consoles get WDs GOTY edition for $20 all DLC uncluded for free.

hcfwesker commented on Forgotten Classics: Resident Evil Code: Veronica:

RE:CV-X My favorite game in the RE series (which USED to be my favorite game series and favorite genre). But then along came Re4 and the series took a downward spiral from horror to dudebro action that it will probably never get back from. Reason my Miiverse profile says "old school RE" as being one of my fave series. Revelations tried, I'll give it credit.

hcfwesker commented on Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure Could Have Been ...:

If it had been an exclusive for Wii it probably wouldn't have gotten as big as the series has. It probably would have been seen as a short lived fad (since everything Wii was viewed that way when something new came to the console) and never would have seen the success it has with being released on multiple platforms.

hcfwesker commented on Review: Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate - Del...:

As a MetroidVania genre fan, this game was actually pretty good at what it tried to do. There are times when controls are unresponsive and the combat (with groups of thugs) is a little button mashy with not much thought put into it. Where the game does excel at is for exploration fans. There's many hidden areas in the game and collectibles to grab. The backtracking was done smoothly, I never felt cheated when most games to this to make the experience longer. Each time I was backtracking, with newer items, I always found several new areas I could finally get into.

The game is far from perfect, but 2D exploration fans should at least give it a shot. The combat is stale, but exploration is pretty well down, and thats the big key to MetroidVania games.

@Giygas_95 Respect! look up my profile on Miiverse and you'll see my fave game of all time as well ;) And, yes Super Metroid is my all time favorite game(mostly for nostalgic purposes, because I dare to say Zero Mission took the best from Super and Fusion and made something truly epic with Zero Mission. Absolutely LOVED the shinespark morphball techniques.

Article Title made me uber happy ... then the actual Article got my hopes up. this makes absolutely no sense to me lol. Why would I want to get a download code when it's just easier to click download on the game from the eShop .... and they never run out of stock lol.

I was so excited, hoping this would actually download the game for me once it was available ... which now we know isn't the case.

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (Europe):

@Game-Over My main concern is the fact GameCube games were announced like 2 years ago before the system's release; and not a single word about them since. They announce GBA games just a few months ago and are already releasing them lol.
Not complaining though, any games on WiiU, at this point, is a good thing; even if they are a little pricey.

hcfwesker commented on Rusty's Real Deal Baseball Has Some Interestin...:

@sinalefa Maybe I watched a completely different nintendo direct than everyone else. Because what I saw was a game where you haggle prices with a dog for baseball themed micro games. The haggling will lose its charm very quickly, and the micro games themselves don't look to have any lasting appeal. I could be wrong, and hope those looking forward to it are happy with the end result. But just from what interests me and my own personal tastes ... this game in no shape or form holds any appeal to me.

hcfwesker commented on Poll: Have Your Say On The GamePad's Role With...:

@ValiantPixel Same here. Even with Monster Hunter 3U, I use the Pro Controller, and just have the gamepad sitting next to me for the touchscreen selections. One of the best uses for all 3, to me, was Need4Speed, where I used Pro Controller for driving, and the Gamepad as rearview mirror/touchscreen dashboard options.

The GamePad, I do like it and wish it was utilized more, I just prefer that 60 hour battery and the feel of a normal controller with the with WiiU Pro Controller.

My funds is maxed out on eShop, and still have 3 $50 eshop cards that are just waiting to be put on my account I bought during their sale. I'll nab Clooudberry Kingdom at that price, and Rayman Legends as well.

I really wish since they combined eShop accounts between WiiU and 3DS they'd let you have a more max amount than $200.

And, lol, AC4 for over $40 digitally, when it's been $25 on amazon for the past several weeks.

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (Europe):

@faint There's also Track & Field (the one that came with the nes running pad thingy), knowing nintendo they'll probably release it for the heck of it since it can be played with a regular controller. I seriously wouldn't put it pass them.

I'm with everyone else though, 3 VC games on 1 day is madness. Last time that happened for NoA was when Capcom released their games. Nintendo for some reason can't manage it with all their games they have waiting and it being their own hardware.

hcfwesker commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Major Wii U Retail T...:

I wasted over 10 months not playing monster hunter 3U because the demo they had for it turned me, and many others away. When capcom had the recent sale i decided to get it for the heck of it. Since that sale, 6-8 weeks ago, I've clocked in over 300 hours into the game ( my fave WiiU game to date). Demos work, but they have to be done correctly. If monster hunter had done something different with the demo, like let you play all the LV1 village quests so you understand the game gradually, and the tutorial it provides on teaching you how to hunt and gather resources. Then when you get to the Urgent Quest and you get to the monster, it shows the video for that monster and the demo ends ... it would have had a much bigger impact and hooked players immediately wanting more.

Nintendo needs demos for all their 1st party games; it just shows how far behind in the times they are. They're so obsessed in putting so much effort into Wii Fit U and Wii Sports U they just don't get it that those gamers are long gone. Yes, they are fun games, but they are no longer system sellers like during the wii generation.

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (North America):

@Yorumi What makes it even more baffling is how fast Capcom got a lot of their AAA games out at one time for most series entries to the eShop ... Final Fight series, Street Fighter 2 series, Ghost n goblins games, and Megaman games out on the WiiU eShop at a very respectable and fast rate. Why can't Nintendo do this on their own system?

And for those who haven't notice, about the SMB3 issue, it's the ONLY VC eShop game that is listed on the VC eShop coming soon list, and has been there since November!!!

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 20th March (North America):

If it takes so long to get games from Wii Shop to WiiU eShop; why, oh god why, are they picking these games thinking that's what we're wanting. Bravo, NOA!

Probably get Pure Chess for WiiU just to have something to buy. Online matches concern me with this one; like how long a chess match can take and what if a losing player decides to exit the game when they know they're beat.

hcfwesker commented on Miiverse Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U and 3DS:

Being able to relabel your post as a spoiler after posting it is a nice update, i usually have to delete my post and repost it to avoid that wonderful miiverse admin message lol. Seeing games communities filter for games you've played is a nice addition as well.

@ikki5 I for one have used it MUCH less than normally. Once the influx of users came with the 3DS merge, it has felt different. So much pointless spam, and post that should get replies get lost in the abyss of spam.

hcfwesker commented on Walmart Announces Foray Into Pre-Owned Games:

@LordGeovanni I'm not talking about the outside plastic for the game cover box, I mean they pull out the paper insert from within that plastic sleeve, and put THEIR price tag over the barcode of the original and on the front as well; and slide it back in the plastic sleeve. Besides, I'd rather pay the extra $5 for a brand new copy, as I've already said.

hcfwesker commented on Walmart Announces Foray Into Pre-Owned Games:

In the rare moments I do buy used games, I only buy used games on eBay, so this doesn't affect me. It's cheaper on eBay, and plus they dont put annoying retail price stickers on the GAME LABEL INSERTS. These end up tearing the game insert labels when you try to peel them off, which is my biggest pet peeve for not buying used games from retail. Plus the retarded pricing of only $5 off for used games when compared to new, I'd rather just get the new copy for just $5 more, complete ripoff.

hcfwesker commented on Monster Hunter is Ten Years Old Today:

Just want to say I'm completely new to the series. Took the dip when Capcom had the recent 50% off sale and have become completely addicted since then, clocking over 250+ hours of playtime. Not sure how I'll make the jump from WiiU to 3DS with MH4, so hoping , as other are, that MH4 somehow makes its way to WiiU. As popular as the series is, not sure how Nintendo didn't try to make this a WiiU exclusive to boost WiiU sales in japan.

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Download: 27th February (North America):

I'm not bothered about no SMB3 yet. but the fact its the ONLY vc game thats on the "coming soon" list for vs games, and has been listed there since November is ridiculous

And, yes, agree that this is a very insulting week of releases.

hcfwesker commented on Best Buy's 20% eShop Card Discount is Back:

Heads up for those without a BestBuy in your area. If you do have a Target store, they will price match anything in their store that is listed on BestBuy's website. So even if they don't have a competing BestBuy store in the area, they still price match what is on their website. ;)

Not sure if this has already been brought up, but wanted to get the word out for those who said they don't have a BestBuy in their area, but may possibly be close to a Target store.

I actually do have a question for MAB, Digital4Life activist. The WiiU home menu, the limited amount of screens that displays your DL'd games. I'm running out of space, so my question is this: Does the Home menu automatically expand to add more screens when it's overflowed, or do you have to eventually delete some games/apps to make room?

@Diddy_kong Same here. MY one complaint with DKCR on Wii was it felt forced to have motion controls with the ground pound, just for the sake of having it in the game cause of the wiimote, and was aggrevated there wasn't a motionless option. Glad to hear there's no unnecessary GamePad touchscreen gimmicks. This game just looks so amazing and hoping I can put monster hunter 3U aside to play it :D

hcfwesker commented on AE Games Reveals Mad Men Football, High Impact...:

Wouldn't something like this actually embarrass Nintendo, themselves? I mean, I appreciate the effort and ambition of this guy; but the fact Nintendo lost their EA support and now THIS is what they have to accept in order to have a football game on their console.

@MAB D4L (Digital for life) in Nintendo translation means ... Digital 4 as long as your system doesn't break or get stolen.

I'd LOVE to go digital only, but until the account system is fixed it's all retail for me, except eShop only stuffz.

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo Still Seeking a Product to Define the...:

One thing is NintendoLand showed promising uses for the GamePad ... but that was a family/children's game. Don't get me wrong, I'm 35 and enjoyed NL, but when THAT's your selling point release game for the new system, core gamers are going to laugh and assume, "looks like nintendo is still only going after the kiddy games again".

Not too sure on imports, but Nintendo owns the exclusive rights to Fatal Frame. Why have they NOT taken advantage of that yet? THAT's your GamePad core game to show off. If a game series ever had a use for it, it's Fatal Frame. Ghost hunting with the GamePad screen as your camera obscura is gold. Fatal Frame and the GamePad were meant to be. By now their exclusivity is probably over with, I haven't checked in on it lately. All we got out of that was that camera obscura 3DS game. What a shame.

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo of America Issues Refunds After Warne...:

@CaPPa Dude ... not everyone is going to buy season passes, as most of us are nintendo only gamers and not aware how season passes work and if they're delivered upon. This case makes a perfect example. Do we want to drop our money ahead of time and hope for the best? Look what happened to you, you paid up and got shafted, as is the case with most projects from 3rd party devs for WiiU.
Most that are interested in DLC, or the game itself, don't "preorder" because they are waiting for reviews ... why should we throw out money ahead of time for something that looks promising, but in most likely will fail upon delivery. In case you didn't notice the reviews on this game were horrible and the game itself plagued with bugs & glitches.
This whole, "we have to show our support for 3rd party devs and buy their games" is utter BULL SHHHHHHH! We're not gonan pay $60 for games that were released 2 years ago just because it's new on a nintendo system. I own 19 retail games, 4 of which are only 1st party, so I did my part and it's just not cutting it. My 3rd party support money has now been shifted to those who do fully support WiiU and nintendo, the Indy scene.

hcfwesker commented on Nintendo of America Issues Refunds After Warne...:

@sinalefa I was just about to ask the same thing when reading the article. So, WB themselves didn't refund the money ... Nintendo did?

I didn't get the season pass because all I cared about was the story mode DLC. I got the "Initiations" DLC thinking that was the story mode DLC. Didn't know it actually had to do with Mr Freeze's origin which I would have loved to have played. Another low blow for WiiU owners. Making money is the goal of course, but sometimes businesses take a loss to show customer loyalty and support. You don't just take back what was planned and what possibly could have been a main factor in why some of us actually purchased the game.

I don't see how many are getting so excited for this when we get 1 NES game a week, 1 SNES game maybe a month, and still nothing from N64 or the promised GC & GBA VC games. How do you think it's gonna work out with DS games on VC? They need to fix the current state of VC and releases , but instead opt out to add more hopes for WiiU owners ... they might as well announce PS4 and XBONE games on the WiiU VC while they're at it :D
