jjmesa16 commented on Feature: The Ultimate Super Smash Bros. Direct...:

I'm kind of disappointed to see that the Wii U won't come out until after December 21 but it's cool that the 3DS version is coming out this summer. The new pokemon characters look pretty cool and it'll be interesting to see what other character join the fray. Also it is strange the Pilotwings is a Wii U stage seeing that there is a Pilotwings game for the 3DS and none for the Wii U (unless you count the VC one). It might be because the stage looked better on the Wii U but the 3D graphics for that stage would have been cool on the 3DS.



jjmesa16 commented on Video: Marvel Characters Making Their Way to D...:

I'm kind of disappointed that Marvel is making its way into Disney Infinity. I don't think that a cartoon Captain America figure/character will look good. Disney has so many other potential characters to put in Disney Infinity. Characters from The Lion King, Beauty & the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Jungle Book, Robin Hood, Wall•E, and Finding Nemo would all be awesome to have in Disney Infinity. Disney has way too many good characters and shouldn't have to go into the Marvel Universe. Marvel has too many of their own games too.

Do you think that this will be the last Nintendo Direct before E3 or do you think that they will have one before the release of Mario Kart 8?

In terms of the Nintendo Direct on Tuesday, I'm very excited to see new footage/character(s) from the new Super Smash Bros. If Nintendo doesn't give a release date it will pretty much be a failure for me. A release window would be a bit disappointing too as Nintendo hasn't stuck within their windows as of late. I'm expecting this game to be out around September but I wouldn't be surprised if it comes out during the holiday season. Overall I'm kind of expecting good things from Nintendo as the last couple of Nintendo Directs have been a bit disappointing. Hey maybe Nintendo will give us Super Smash Bros. 64 or Melee, the best game in the series, on VC but I doubt it. I can dream right?



jjmesa16 commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

I might start over Paper Mario: Sticker Star or Luigi's Mansion 2. I keep playing Pokemon X as I might compete in the next tournament. If I have other time I'll probably play some Mario Kart 7. Definitley a 3DS time right now as the Wii U continues to go through a games drought (besides VC).

I might also pick up a Gameboy Advance game or 2 but my 3DS is keeping me pretty occupied at the moment.



jjmesa16 commented on Walmart's Mickey 3DS XL Will Sell for $199.96,...:

@Katzii I agree.' I'm not a fan of the magical world logo. The disney castle/logo would have looked better and would have attracted a larger audience I think. I still might get this one eventually though.

I also think that a gold 3DS with white balloons would have been cooler.



jjmesa16 commented on Artwork: When Nintendo Finally Gets Around To ...:

The designs are good but like most people I think that the original designs are better. The reason is Star Fox is for all ages and the drawings look to realistic/mature. It would be great for Nintendo to make a mature game (preferably a new IP) but I'm not sure that Star Fox fits the bill.



jjmesa16 commented on Miiverse Gets a Fresh Update for Wii U and 3DS:

Great updates but honestly I will probably only use the search feature, which should have been there long ago. The only thing that I use Miiverse for is to look at my activity feed for news from Sakurai, Tom, and other Nintendo executives, and to check out the Pokemon forum.

One thing that they need to fix is the ability to post friend codes under the Pokemon forum so that you can trade and battle through Miiverse instead of having to go elsewhere to meet new people.

Screenshots for any game would also be nice. Imagine a button combo that would take a screenshot from any game and would give you the choice of going to Miiverse or saving it to your camera roll.

There is still a lot of work to be done with Miiverse but it is getting better.



jjmesa16 commented on Review: Pokémon Link: Battle! (3DS eShop):

One thing that would make this game a must buy is if it was linked to Pokemon Bank or to Pokemon X/Y so that you could transfer Pokemon you caught in Pokemon Link: Battle to the main games. That would be awesome.



jjmesa16 commented on Review: The LEGO Movie Videogame (3DS):

I still don't see the big deal about The Lego Movie. Sure I saw it and it was very creative but it is nowhere near the best animated movie I've seen. I'm not saying I hated it. I just thought it was alright, not excellent.



jjmesa16 commented on Nintendo Switching Off Wi-Fi Connection Servic...:

I'm wondering if we can still transfer Pokemon from BW/B2W2 to X and Y after this date. Does anyone know if this affects Poke Transporter? I hope not. Technically Poke Transporter is a 3DS app however I think it uses an internet connection through BW/B2W2 to transfer pokemon into Pokemon Bank.

EDIT: Looks like Poke Transporter will still work according to Serebii.



jjmesa16 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Direct Pointed to Anot...:

"It's not been helped by the Wii U delay of Watch_Dogs, but it's becoming increasingly clear why Satoru Iwata — in his various January briefings — was talking about mid-term plans and returning to the good times in the next financial year (after 31st March)."

Seems like they said this at the end of the last fiscal year too.



jjmesa16 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

Meh. It was alright. Kind of lacking in the surprise category as we already knew most of this information already. Mario Kart 8 was the only big Wii U game that had a launch date. No "release windows" for any other games such as Bayonetta 2, Super Smash Bros. and X. On the other hand I liked that GameBoy Advance games are finally coming to Wii U but I would like to see some Pokemon titles finally come over to the VC for Wii U or 3DS. The future of the Wii U looks bright. However when is that future going to happen?



jjmesa16 commented on Talking Point: What We Expect In Nintendo Dire...:

I'm not getting my hopes too high because I know I will be disappointed. I expect to see a lot of Donkey Kong, Yoshi and maybe Kirby. I would be surprised to see a huge amount of info on Mario Kart as it doesn't come out until May (probably June based on Nintendo's track record). I'm not sure we'll see any new character for Super Smash Bros., but we might see an old one. I would like to see some more info on upcoming Wii U VC as that area has been lacking in the past couple months. Overall I'm not expecting too much from Nintendo these days.

@readyletsgo A new 3DSXL might be shown off this year but I don't think it will be at E3 since Nintendo didn't even show up last year. They didn't even announce the release date or price for the Wii U at E3.



jjmesa16 commented on Iwata Looking To Emulate iOS And Android With ...:

@Goginho Name it the 4DS. You fill up a water tank before you play and it sprays you. Lol. I remember back to the development of the Wii, which was then called the Revolution. It'd be cool to see a name like that again although I'm not sure any console will be as revolutionary (pun intended) as the Wii was.



jjmesa16 commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Satoru Iwata's Nintendo...:

One thing I wish that Iwata would have talked about at the briefing was accounts (NNID). There is much improvement that needs to be done on that front. I really wish that games weren't tied to systems but were tied to accounts instead. It's something that Nintendo really needs to do and I hope that's it's done before E3 2015.



jjmesa16 commented on Talking Point: Is There A Future For The Wii U...:

Great article and I find that this topic could go either way. I agree most games for the Wii U you do not need the gamepad however for some games it makes the game easier. Take for instance Pikmin 3. You can use the pro controller but it is much easier to use the gamepad to throw Pikmin. Games such as SMBU and SM3DW do not use the touchscreen to their full extent however I find it easier to play on the gamepad than on the TV. What Nintendo really needs to do is use the gamepad like they did in NintendoLand. The person with the gamepad had a unique experience compared to everyone else playing playing on the TV.

So yes it can go either way. The gamepad isn't a necessary for most Wii U games however I believe that it makes the gaming experience more enjoyable overall.

@Incognito_D I agree. The gamepad shouldn't be the main selling point for the Wii U even though it offers a unique experience compared to other home consoles. What really makes Nintendo stand out is their software. Many people would agree that Nintendo has the better first party titles than Microsoft and Sony.
