hydeks commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 1st...:

all around very solid Nintendo Direct for me, I was kinda hoping for a vague launch window announcement for Xenoblade Chronicles X, but they might be leaving that till E3 time. The big new for me was the Yoshi woolly world amiibo, Splatoon coming in May with 3-pack amiibo, Fatal Frame coming to Wii U, and screens from the SMT x Fire Emblem Wii U game!



hydeks commented on Yoshi's Woolly World Knits Up Some Release Det...:

I'll be picking up the game and a green yoshi for sure! Only downer is Europe gets the game in June while us North American fans only got a release window of fall, why can't we have it in June too?!?!?



hydeks commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:

Most years I have gotten Platinum status, but I think this year I didn't even get gold :-P I wish they gave physical stuff, they mean more to me then a digital code of a game.

@bofus Tropical Freeze is a lot of fun, I'm currently playing it and having a blast with it! Definitely recommend it ;-)



hydeks commented on Microsoft Once Had Some Pretty Wild Ideas, Inc...:

Microsoft buying Nintendo?!?! points and rofl at Microsoft you gotta be kidding me!!! Giving a system away for free!?!?! points and laughs more at them omg, that made my day, thank you! :-D

Only thing Microsoft SHOULD have done was buy SEGA, and they SHOULD have made the Xbox backwards with the Sega Dreamcast like they had planned, that would have been awesome, but buying Nintendo....yaaa...dream on, Microsoft.



hydeks commented on Talking Point: It's Too Early to Write Off the...:

I'm actually more excited about the future of the Wii U now more then ever! Sure the new Zelda isn't coming out, and yes that is a huge downer, but we're getting a lot of other great games this year, and I think Xenoblade Chronicles X will be a HUGE sale.

As for the NX thing, most times when Nintendo releases a game console, they immediately start working on the next one, so them announcing it is no big deal. We'll probably learn more E3 2016, then it will be released most likely in 2017, so we got some years left with the Wii U. I'm not worried about the sales, that's up to Nintendo to worry about, I'm just gonna enjoy some great games ;-)



hydeks commented on Talking Point: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U Ma...:

So far, Xenoblade Chronicles X is the big game I'm looking forward too, but I really hope to hear Star Fox coming near Xmas time, and some sort of surprise game (either a Metroid game or Bandai making the announcement of a Tales of game coming to the Wii U) around Xmas time will make the wait for Zelda in 2016 at least more bearable, but the fact that the Wii U's third party support is not there, and there isn't a lot of other announced games yet makes me very worried.

@IceClimbers yay I agree with you and the poll, Xenoblade Chronicles is a HUGE draw in to the system, but mainly for bigger fans of Nintendo, Zelda has always been that series that really sold Nintendo systems since Ocarina of Time on the N64.



hydeks commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

I'm happy they decide not to rush the game out, but in the same note other than Splatoon, Yoshi's Woolly World and Devil's Third what really is there to look forward too? Those three games won't fill up my whole year of gaming, Nintendo, you better pull a surprise out of your butt at E3.



hydeks commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:

great list, you could have easily made a top 20 if you wanted and added MH3U and MH4U, kid icarus uprising, sonic generations (I think it deserves to be there!), kingdom hearts 3d, tales of the abyss, street fighter, bravely default, etrain odyssey etc etc. lots of great games on the little handheld ;-)



hydeks commented on Bandai Namco Celebrates the 20th Anniversary f...:

it's funny how this popped up because I was just saying how I wish a Tales of game would come to the Wii U, I would buy that day one if they did! (even if it's a re-release of Tales of Xillia 1 & 2 for Wii U) My friend bought Tales of Symphonia Chronicles for the PS3 and it made me remember how much fun I had with the games of Gamecube and Wii. Hopefully, the surprise is something good for us Nintendo fans, instead of Sony getting everything like usual -_-



hydeks commented on Feature: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U - What D...:

there is a lot of great Wii U software coming out this year, and I can't wait! Zelda, Xenoblade, Yoshi's Woolly World, Splatoon are at the top of my list. I really hope we get to see more of the new Zelda at E3 (or on a Nintendo Direct) because what little they showed last year still had me pumped up for this game!



hydeks commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

Despite what NintendoLife says, I thought the Wii U gamepad was a great peice of technology that makes the plan and boring ps4 and X1 controllers seem old and dull. The Nintendo NX will be a cool system if Nintendo allows use of the wii remote, wii u gamepad, and something new and exciting! Also, make the system as powerful as the competitions, just so we can get some third party support again.



hydeks commented on We Have Shigeru Miyamoto To Thank For The Supe...:

I agree with Miyamoto, there wouldn't have been much of a point to the new system if they didn't add that feature. I can't wait to get one after trying my friends system, and the three things that sold me where the joystick, added shoulder buttons, and most importantly, the stable 3D! Thank you, Miyamoto!



hydeks commented on Reaction: The Nintendo 'NX', and Why We Think ...:

I don't see this as a good thing, I see it more as the next big flop from Nintendo since the Virtual Boy :-P Being a handheld, console, and going into mobile just seems like too much for Nintendo to handle, especially when they can barely get people to buy their console. I say make a new home console that can actually compete against the X1 and PS4 and stop with these stupid gimmicks.



hydeks commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

Dear Nintendo: I love that you guys still make couch co-op games, that's something PlayStation and Xbox REALLY needs to learn, but you need to learn to also add ONLINE multiplayer for even more replay.



hydeks commented on Nintendo of America Store Offering Refurbished...:

If they had the same bundle for brand new for $199.99 CAD I MIGHT consider then buying the system, but with the lack of games, I'll keep waiting till Xenoblade comes out.

@Jahir yea, sometimes they don't even add us Canadians into it :-P But you are right, Mexico gets the shaft ALOT from them.



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.
