hydeks commented on Former Sega of America CEO Talks Out on the Co...:

As a Sega fan, I agree with what he said that SEGA made tons of mistakes, basically from 1995 on wards was a mistake with them, but as for the Nintendo thing, I think they should be a portable-only company. Their home consoles just don't sell enough or get enough games, but their portables always sell tons of units and get lots of great games! To be honest, I'm kinda surprised they bother doing consoles with how much of the market PlayStation and Xbox have in it, and how those consoles gaming has changed to be more like PC then it use to be when Nintendo was on top :-P



hydeks commented on Weirdness: Hands Up If You Knew About the Supe...:

tries the cheat and it works omg, you have to be freakin' kidding me! -_- you know how handy this simple code could have been when I was younger?!?! I guess finding out about it 30 years later is better then never....I guess :-P lol



hydeks commented on Super Smash Bros. Melee and Wii U Confirmed fo...:

I never understood why Smash Bros is added to EVO, it's more of a party-fighting game than a true fighter like the other games on that list :-P Good to hear it's there at least and not being almost banned by Nintendo like last years.



hydeks commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

As a person from Canada who doesn't currently own an 3DS or anything and was waiting for the New 3DS to jump into 3DS again, I was initially very excited, and now I'm just disappointed, yet again -_-

They're not bringing the smaller New 3DS models over here, which is what I wanted, they got the listed price for just the system at $229.99/ $259.99 for the Monster Hunter 4 bundle is too high of a price, and just to put a dab more of stupidity into a high MSRP for the system, the frickin' thing doesn't come with a ac adapter which will cost an extra $15-20!!!! >< Stupid move Nintendo, VERY stupid move, I could forgive the price and that, but not adding a ac adapter is pure stupidity.

So for this new system, I would need to pay $229.99 + $40 for a game + $15 for a ac adapter (added together, that's $284.99).......all of a sudden the Wii U looks like a steal :-P



hydeks commented on New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Editions Already I...:

and yet again North American gamers get screwed by Nintendo on a great offer....yup, Nintendo, your presence here is a joke and fans like me are starting to move on and actually hate you cause your not catering to your loyal NA fans AT ALL!!! ><



hydeks commented on Nintendo Download: 8th January (Europe):

jaw drops the wii u is just now getting chariot?!?! geesh, nintendo's hardware is 6 years behind and there software is nearly released a year later then most platforms :-P



hydeks commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

Just make a console with a interface like Wii U's and as powerful as the competitions consoles :-P I do love the gamepad, but probably make it a secondary to a normal pro style controller as well, and hopefully both those will get back some third party support again. It would be awesome to see a Zelda or Mario game with PS4/ X1 style hardware!



hydeks commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

It was a tough decision between Heart Gold and Soul Silver and X&Y, but I went with X&Y because it's the pokemon game that had me the most addicted and coming back to play more then any other game in the series. Any one of the pokemon games is a classic, though :-)



hydeks commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Staff Awards...:

wow, I actually don't agree for once with your list lol I think Wii U retail game of the year was Smash Bros with Bayonetta 2 being 2nd and Mario Kart 8 in 3rd. As for 3DS retail, I would have gone with Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby in first and Bravely Default in 2nd and Smash Bros in 3rd.



hydeks commented on Feature: Dreaming of a Nintendo Christmas - Da...:

Awesome read! And don't apologize for mentioning Sega, Sega was/is awesome! :-)

I have two favourite memories of christmas as a kid. The first was in 1992 when I woke up and there was a huge box on the coffee table, me and my sister opened it up and it was a brand new Sega Genesis model 2 with Sonic 2 and Ecco, needless to say we didn't leave the tv that day at all lol

My second favourite and most remembered memory was in 1995 when I finally got my very own game console that I didn't have to share. It was a Super Nintendo that came with Super Mario World and Super Mario All-Stars bundled, and I also got Yoshi's Island and Stanley Cup separately with it. I had a huge love for gaming before then, but that was the year I basically started my collection :-)



hydeks commented on Nintendo Highlights Great Games in a Rather Pr...:

Very nice, I like how it's not full of itself like Sony likes to be :-P All and all, Nintendo had a great year, so much in fact that people that I heard that didn't want a Wii U, rushed out and got one! I know I will be getting mine soon, and I can't wait!

Nintendo consoles might not get as many games as Microsoft and Sony, but I've never traded in a Nintendo game like I have a Sony or Microsoft games. Nintendo games I usually find I enjoy more and end up finishing and beating everything in their games, and go back to them time and time again, while Sony and Microsoft games I usually barely get through the story, then I either barely touch it again or I trade it in :-P



hydeks commented on Miyamoto: We Are Working On Ideas For The Next...:

this doesn't surprise me because most companies start working and planning the next system right when that current system was just released (Nintendo basicly had plans for N64 not even 2 years after SNES' release :-P)

Personally, I have no idea what Nintendo will do with it's next system, and to be honest THAT is why Nintendo has become so exciting lately. The other consoles you expect to see just a normal controller and a system with improved graphics, but Nintendo see's that as boring and loves to innovate and bring fresh ways to play video games. I do hope that the next Nintendo system still has Wii Remotes, and I hope that the Wii U gamepad can also be used with it, but otherwise, I don't expect anything other then to be amazed at Nintendo's innovation. While others will be dabbing into VR, I betcha Nintendo will go in a different, more unique direction :-)



hydeks commented on The World's Oldest Video Game Media Brand Is B...:

Omg future publishing wtf?!? First they get rid of my favourite magazine Nintendo Power, now there getting rid of UK's CVG magazine?!? Man...what a bummer!

I loved reading those mags and got into them when I became friends with someone who moved from the UK to Canada and had a lot of the issues from around the 16-bit/ 32-bit era. Sad to hear yet another great magazine go :-(



hydeks commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. and amiibo Ha...:

I think that Nintendo didn't think amiibo would be such a big hit as it is, so they don't have enough supply for the demand. Hopefully Nintendo rights this soon, because I'm looking forward to getting a Wii U in a month or so and it would be nice to be able to get my favourite amiibo's for smash bros :-)

My opinion of Nintendo is definitely starting to improve as of late with all the great games and innovations they have been doing. I think I went sour on Nintendo for awhile cause nothing was coming out and no third party support, but the games their coming out with are impressing me more then the "next gen" consoles have so far.

@markybbop very true, that is one thing that bugs me about Nintendo, but when Nintendo releases a game, that game is usually definitely worth your money and usually has tons of replay and fun factor and usually tries to get you to play with people in the same room. I have a Xbox One and I do enjoy some of the games on the system, but I always find myself forcing my way through a game people think is "just the greatest" and finding that the game wasn't worth the price. One thing I know that Nintendo does that I wish Sony and Microsoft would do is makes more couch co-op games, I'm sick of playing games with my friends not around.



hydeks commented on Nintendo Reveals New Wii U Footage and Details...:

meh, I doubt we'll see both games next year :-P Star Fox will probably come out in the Fall of 2015 while Zelda will probably be pushed back (like Nintendo LOVES to do) till like Summer 2016 :-P Nintendo takes forever to release games, and usually when they say something is coming out, add a couple of more seasons to that and you probably have the real release date lol



hydeks commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

I have this on Xbox One and enjoy it WAY better then the Wii U version my friend has. Kinda unfortunate the Wii U version sucks, it's actually a pretty fun game on the X1/PS4 version.



hydeks commented on Sonic Boom Wii U And 3DS Both Stall Outside Of...:

the 3ds game sucks, the Wii U game is horrific, and the cartoon is just ok, so overall I would like Sega to can Sonic Boom as quick as possible in favour of making a decent game :-P Sonic Generations style gameplay on X1/ PS4, come on Sega, do it already!!! ><



hydeks commented on Thousands In Australia & New Zealand Attend Mi...:

.....why did Australia and New Zealand get the New 3DS before the west did?!? Nintendo thought releasing it there before Xmas over there was smart but they're holding off on the western release till after Xmas?!? The New 3DS could have been the hottest buy for Xmas over here and would have made TONS of sales!!!!! God Nintendo, every move you make lately just seems....stupid :-P



hydeks commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Emphasizes the Nintendo Diffe...:

looks at Nintendo are you stupid Nintendo?!? I mean seriously, you think Steam and Amazon are your competitions?!?

You see Nintendo, your WRONG in every way, Sony and Microsoft are your competition, rather you like it or not, and so far, they're kicking your butt so much in the console department it's not even funny -_- The way you guys are going, I would actually say android, apple, and LeapFrog is more your competition ¬¬



hydeks commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

wow, Sony really thinks there all that, don't they? :-P Well it's been awhile since they said something pompous, so sure why not? Give me a break on the Vita being better then 3DS and that though, the PSP was crap and even that system was WAY better then the Vita has been :-P



hydeks commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

The Wii U is a nice system, the huge problems are that there is no third part support, and the fact Nintendo seems to like being a generation behind when it comes to the system hardware :-P I would rate the system a "C-" just because of the lack of games, but the gamepad, exclusives, and miiverse get a definitely "A+" in my books :-)



hydeks commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

I really love Nintendo and Reggie, but this is the first time I disagree with him. For $299 you do get a Wii U with 2 games, but the system is lacking A LOT of features the next gen consoles have, including simple thing like video playback from dvd and blu-ray, and their third party support is absolutely pathetic! The only good reason to buy a Wii U is if you only want Nintendo games, and I personally want a little more then that.

If you where going to go by price and deal, you would most likely go Xbox One, especially since it's only $399 with 1 or 2 games depending on the bundle. Also, people would be smarter to buy a X1 or PS4 because they get the third party games and know there will be a great selection of games to play, while Nintendo home consoles are becoming well known to only have Nintendo made games which are super kiddie platforming games, which is just not much in the way of variety.

With how long it takes Nintendo to bring games out, to most people, Nintendo home consoles aren't usually worth it till almost the end of there life span.



hydeks commented on Video: Nintendo's Wii U Holiday Commercial Kee...:

umm, funny commercial, but why you showing off Mario Kart 8 when the bundle your showing has Super Mario 3D World? Shouldn't you have shown off Super Mario 3D World maybe a little? Just a slight nic-picking from me, that's all ^-^



hydeks commented on Konami Demands That Hardcore Gaming 101 Presen...:

Seems like a very interesting book, if it goes back on sale, I would gladly pick up a copy ^-^ Konami, instead of just telling him to stop seling the book, work with Kalata and settle some kinda agreement so hardcore Castlevania fans can pick this book up!



hydeks commented on Video: The Top 10 Mario Platformers, As Select...:

awesome video, but #1 should have been Super Mario Bros 3 or Super Mario 64, not Super Mario World, though it is a great game, definitely isn't the overall best Mario game. Seriously, Super Mario Bros 3 coming in at #7?!?!? You gotta be joking...



hydeks commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

@kamifox1 lol trust me I'm a huge Sonic fan, I know. I did enjoy Lost World, so to see them go from something I like back to this kinda crap just saddens me. After Sonic 06, Lost World is the only console game I liked (EDIT: I forgot Sonic Generations, Colors, and the two racing games, those are fantastic too), as for the portable games, they all seem pretty great! I can't try the 3DS demo cause I don't have a 3DS, but I have seen videos and it does look why is the Wii U game soooo crappy looking?!? They need to take the Sonic Generations and Colors formula and make a game from that, cause they did it great in those games, so this Sonic Boom feels like a huge step back again.



hydeks commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

takes Sonic away from Sega and gives him to Nintendo I swear, this is the only way we are gonna get a good Sonic game now...

What a bland, boring looking game, and the character model for Knuckles is just horrible!!! ><



hydeks commented on Gallery: Duck Hunt's Super Smash Bros. Screens...:

you know, SSB on wii u and 3ds went from a game I wasn't excited about at all cause it barely looked different from the other SSB, but now I'm really REALLY wanting a Wii U again to play this!!! (amongst other games, of course...and yes I sold my Wii U I had before, that was a big mistake -_-)



hydeks commented on Nintendo Black Friday Deals Reveal New 3DS and...:

Actually, Black Friday started in USA, Canada didn't really get into Black Friday until a couple years ago, our "Black Friday" shopping day is Boxing Day (the day after Christmas) :-P We don't technically celebrate Black Friday because our Thanksgiving is in October instead.

Anyways, that Crystal Blue 2DS looks pretty slick, I might go get that and Smash Bros. I never used the 3D on the 3DS and I don't feel like paying the outrageous price of $200 for a 3DS XL still, so this could be a nice cheaper way of getting into 3DS gaming :-)
