jbrewer99 commented on Bravely Second "Tomahawk" Costume Change Confi...:

I'd rather have the native american than the cowboy, but really neither one fully fits into a fantasy rpg in my opinion. If you want a gun toting character then go for it, there are plenty of types in fantasy rpg games that dont have to sound like a southerner. If you want a native type character with melee then go for it as well. Again both of these have been done before. I think the only offending thing that may have existed in the tomahawk character was the headdress. Remove that and you can still have a native american type character and keep most people pretty happy.

jbrewer99 commented on Video: Final Fantasy Explorers Multiplayer Tra...:

I like final fantasy as much as most everyone else, but thi trailer doesn't help me make a decision since its again only focused on multiplayer. There's always subtext saying you can play solo but I haven't really seen any solo gameplay. I don't have anyone I can play with, especially being a 42 year old dad. Will I be able to play this solo and is it a hunting game like monster hunter? I don't care for those. If so, I'll just wait for world of final fantasy. That one looks like it'll be closer to a real jrpg. I'm just afraid this is monster hunter and it's just not my cup of tea.

jbrewer99 commented on Sales for Dementium Remastered Have Been Much ...:

I have to agree that a mature title, regardless of how much I like it, just isn't going to sell well on the 3ds. Moon chronicles and xeodrifter were let downs. Doesn't matter how much respect we have for the studio if they simply aren't making great games that people want to play or making the right kinds of games for their platform of choice. To all marketing errors on their part and mediocre titles really.

The article doesn't say but I'm assuming the data packs are on the internal ssd and not an external mechanical drive? I downloaded the packs and I assume the Wii u put them on my external. Should I move them to internal or is that going to make much difference?

I don't personally care about the lingerie but why on earth remove it on an M rated game? This isn't for kids and it's not like we don't already get senra kagura, dead or alive volleyball, and rumble roses here in the west? It just seems a bit silly to remove underwear from an already rated M game here.

For heavy urban areas in can see this becoming very popular. I hope they have some sense in their programming for those of us in more rural areas that don't walk to work or all over a city each day. I for one drive 45 minutes each way to work then sit in an office. It will be interesting to see how far they expect people to go looking for Pokemon when this comes out.

jbrewer99 commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

@Yorumi sure it can be done but I think even with current technology it will be cost prohibited. Even if just a normal sad card were used, say 64gb. That's probably $50 plus just for he card. I know large quantities will save a some money but it may still end up being $30-$40 per car. That leaves little room for the developer and Nintendo to make much money on the game. Things could easily change though and Nintendo could have something interesting up their sleeve. I'd love to see cartridges of some sort so we can either pop it into our home NX or our portable NX on the go. It's possible but will take some serious engineering to make it cost effective. Maybe they have the costs down on 3ds type cards and can really expand the storage on those. Who knows.

jbrewer99 commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

@MrGuinea very possible. I hope that's not the case but times are changing and it could happen. I don't think the us infrastructure is quite ready for all digital. Many rural areas just don't have decent speeds and then you have collectors like myself that really don't like the idea of digital at all. I buy some but they are mostly eshop only games that have no physical release. I'd hate to see it come to that only but we'll have to wait and see.

jbrewer99 commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

@Yorumi the problem is flash memory like an ad card isn't meant for log term storage. They don't last anywhere near the length of actual cartridge memory or even optical. This is why the vita and 3ds use proprietary cartridges instead of simple sd cards. Hopefully Nintendo can create something less expensive that lasts as long as cartridge memory while holding enough data for HD video and decent audio. I'm not sure what the current limit is on 3ds cartridges but resident evil revelations was huge compared to most. Several gigs if I remember correctly but still nothing close to the 50gb of a bluray. I think cost may force these into digital only which will be a shame.

jbrewer99 commented on Sources Suggest Nintendo NX Is A Fusion Of Hom...:

I love the idea of blending home and mobile but I'm unsure how games will work. In order to hold enough data for high resolution graphics and audio you either need a physical disk or huge downloads. If you end up able to take your gaming on the go after buying home version how will that work? The handheld won't have an optical drive, not something full size at least and we know the pains the psp had. Does this mean we may end up in a digital only age for NX? As a collector I truly hope not. i am hopeful this works out though. The idea of playing some of my 3ds games on the tv or full home games on the go will be really nice.

I really fear for Nintendo now. I love Zelda games but other than four swords they have always been single player and that's really what their fans want and enjoy. If you're going to make another mp Zelda game at least give us some usable and enjoyable single player way of playing it. This really just looks Iike torture to play alone. I'm not into mp gaming so I'll pass.

I tried the demo and could have got past the seriously lacking story and character development. My problem and the same most people are having is the cryptic leveling system that basically ruins this game. I so wanted to love it and even walked up to the counter to buy it before I came to my senses and dropped it. If they changed to a normal leveling system I'd be behind the game, but as is, it's just not fun with ff2 leveling mechanics.

jbrewer99 commented on Weirdness: Japanese Company Wants To Bring NES...:

I really don't see the point of a dongle on my mobile device. Why not just use existing app stores to buy the games or make them in app purchases inside the emulator app? I don't personally want to carry around any cartridges for playing games on my phone or tablet when I could just download directly to the storage on the devices. And as metalface said, I won't be able to plug in my awesome z moda headphones with this stupid thing. No thanks.

jbrewer99 commented on Nintendo of America Makes Young Boy's Dream Co...:

Working at a children's hospital, I can tell you first hand how important a company like this is. We have kids of all ages coming in, some for extremely long time frames. Having video games is something both kids and adults enjoy, but many families isly can't afford nor can they haul them into the hospital all the time. We have a few areas with video game consoles setup for the kids and I've seen them really getting immersed which is great as they get some time to forget about the real world they are in for a time. I'm glad to see nintendo and starlight acting as partners for something like this.

jbrewer99 commented on New Difficulty Settings, 3D Title Screen and M...:

I enjoyed what I played of the ds version before my son broke my shoulder button. I've repladed that 3ds with the "new" one and forgot to go back to play the ds game. Being for 3ds now, the texture improvement should be massive so I'll try to wait to play the new version. It's really too bad it's digital only. Being a collector, physical is important, but renegade Kidd needs the support, so I'll let it slide for this developer. Hopefully with their existing games they make enough money to continue working on the failed kickstarter, Cult County as I was excited for that.

I'll pick this up when it's on clearance. If the mp is its only redeeming factor then obviously they spent too much time on that aspect and not enough on the campaign. If they wanted a mp only game then they should have done that. Not everyone wants to play mp games all the time so having a subpar sp game is going to get a subpar review. They built a single player game with multi-player, reviewers are going to score it that way.

jbrewer99 commented on Talking Point: The Pros, Cons and Questionable...:

I seriously hope this is some kind of integrated portable and home console with wii u and 3ds backwards compatibility. There are so many awesome 3ds games, but I simply am not comfortable with a handheld. The thought of playing them on the tv sounds just perfect to me. I enjoy my gb and gba games on my gamecube gameboy player so something similar with current technology would really give me the best of both worlds while also allowing nintendo to have new audiences since people could play both portable and home games however they please. C'mon nintendo, we have faith in you still to turn things around.

Already pledged for a boxed snes version. If anyone is interested, John Lester also has a YouTube channel, gamester81, which has great retro and current reviews. He's a very cool guy, I've been watching him for years.

Nintendo, it's beyond comprehension why limited editions would only be available in your single physical store in new York and you cant order it online. At this point just don't offer them here in the US. You make absolutely no sense with decisions like this.

jbrewer99 commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

I have all three new systems so I'm not really bothered that is not on the wii u. We have to remember that the original game was on playstation the first go round so it's not lot this has always been a nintendo game. I'm just happy to have an upgraded version to play with hopefully better controls. If capcom wants to really impress is and make some money they need to completely revamp re2, 3, and choose Veronica. Now those sorely need it and would sell very well.

jbrewer99 commented on Renegade Kid Open to Another Kickstarter Campa...:

maybe, but moon chronicles on 3ds was a bit dissappointing. i dont think id personally care for it again even on the more comfortable home console. too bad cult county was asking for a rediculous amount of money with no worthwhile video to entice prospective backers. in the end the video they did show was a simple walk through a basic looking environment. whatever they do, they really need to get further along before putting it on kickstarter this time. i mean you cant expect $500k from people when only showing them artist renders.

jbrewer99 commented on Nintendo Announces The GameCube Controller Ada...:

Personally I'm glad so many people are excited about this I guess, but I for one would never go back to using a weird controller. I still have my wavebyrd, but the wii u pro controller has at least the same amount of control buttons and sticks as well as vibration so I see no point in using it for a wii u game. In the other hand, if this is successful, I foresee nintendo either making wavebyrds again for use with this, or, and this I would actually love, a new tech wavebyrd. Take it the rf and batteries and insert bluetooth, radio, and a lithium battery. All the two control a lot of people want, but great Wireless and vibration as well as recharge ability.

@Cathousemaster it sure would for me. Haven't picked the game up yet as I'm out of town, but I will later tonight when I get home. Looks relaxing and I'm hoping my daughter will like it. I've been having a hard time finding a game she has enough interest in to get her started gaming. She's 6. My 3 year old son though has no problem and has been playing mario games for almost a year now. It helps that both mom and dad play to get him into it. Here's hoping Flowerworks does it for the girl. The game looks great to me, but I've played the original. Keep up the good work and I'm looking forward to your teams next project on wii u.

Something I think could be helpful in the short term.. Like 6 months to 1 year, is some vc n64 and GameCube games. Also port over some of the great 3ds titles to Wii u like link between worlds, Luigi's mansion,ocarina of time, etc. Just a small bump in resolution is fine, they don't even need new textures on these.

@rjejr
You're absolutely right. I love my Wii u and I love the gamepad controller. The problem is both third and first party games aren't really here yet. While I won't say anything negative about wind waker HD, it's a beautiful game and one of my favorite Zelda titles, it wasn't what anyone wanted our expected; neither is another donkey Kong game. Customers want a new Zelda title and a new metroid. The gamepad is cool and I love using it, but we need the quality nitendo games we buy Nintendo consoles for. Mario kart and ssb will help, but we need the games we all want. I just hope Nintendo and retro are working on them.

jbrewer99 commented on Mass Market Price And Mario Kart 8 Will Revers...:

@ROBLOGNICK I totally agree. I've been saying this for months. Get the virtual console running with n64, gamecube, Saturn, dreamcast, etc and things will start turning around. There's a lot of people who want to pay these older girls but don't want to pay rediculous prices for old games and systems from collectors. They also need to seriously get with capcom about updating the resident evil games and releasing them on wii u as timed exclusives, then get them out to other consoles after. I would say normal exclusives but with the small market share wii u has, just no way capcom would do that.

jbrewer99 commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

At first I didn't know what to think. Actually now, its an ingenious idea. Its cheaper, removes the 3d, and removes the hinge which can be a breaking/weak point down the road. My only gripe is that from looking on nintendo's site, it appears to be the same screen size as the original 3ds. If it were 3DS XL size, then it would indeed be a good bargain. If it had the larger screens and I didnt already have a 3ds xl, I'd get one.
