jjmesa16 commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (North America):

@Robo-Knight That's a great question. I'm not entirely sure. I'm assuming at you don't have to because that promotion has nothing to do with Club Nintendo. I could be wrong though.

Edit: I was wrong. Here is what Nintendo of Europe's Twitter had to say about the promotion:

"Register both the #WiiU and #3DS versions of #SmashBros on Club Nintendo before 31/03 and get Mewtwo for free!"

However if you do not have both versions you can purchase Mewtwo for a TBD cost.

jjmesa16 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

@B3ND3R Agreed. In my opinion the 3DS is better because of the quantity and quality of the games available. The amount of quality 3DS games puts the Vita to shame, and that's not including all of the awesome DS games.

On the topic of the Wii. The Wii reaches out many gamers with so many different game genres (mature games are somewhat hard to find though). With the Wii being backwards compatible, it makes the game library even better with a great selection of Gamecube titles. I'm still not sure why Sony and Microsoft refuse to make their consoles backwards compatible. Also I'm not sure how you can say that Wii brand is bad, when the Wii outsold the PS3 by almost 20%.

Innovation: something new or different introduced.
Tell me how the Playstation Move was more innovative than the Wii's motion controls.

So again which is better, graphics (PS3/PS4) or games (Wii/Wii U)? Like most people I choose games, which is why I own a Wii, 3DS, and Wii U.

Note: I'm not saying that all Sony and third-party games are bad, I just think that Nintendo games offer better gameplay and replay value. That's my personal opinion.

He is somewhat right. The Vita has better graphics and is a better media player than the 3DS. However the 3DS is better in terms of gameplay and game library which is what really counts since they are both called handheld gaming platforms.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

@Nintendobro @Agent721 @Vineleaf Thanks guys. I just wanted to see what people though about consoles and multimedia devices.

I bought a Wii U when it first came out and I hardly ever use it for streaming video as I have too many other devices that do the job more efficiently.

By the way I give the Wii U a B- as of right now. The first-party library is growing and there are many great indie games currently on the eShop. However sales for the Wii U have been less than stellar. It'd be nice to see more third-party support but I'm not sure if that will happen. By this time next year I think the Wii U will probably be a B+ or an A- given that Zelda and Xenoblade, and possibly Star Fox, will be on store shelves.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: The Wii U is Two Years Old, But How's...:

Here some questions for everyone:

If the Wii U was able to play Blu-ray discs do you think that sales would have been better (closer to PS4 figures)? If you bought a PS4 or XBOX One do you play Blu-rays with them?

When you purchase a game system do you consider the other features (Blu-ray player, multimedia player, etc.) or do you simply buy consoles to play games?

jjmesa16 commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

@Samurai_Goroh I didn't look at the price of Watch Dogs until now. $59 (I'm assuming) is ridiculous for a game that launched almost 6 months ago on every other console. At $59 the DLC should be included. Currently the prices for Watch Dogs are around $38 for all other consoles. Ubisoft could at least drop the price to $40. I'll definitely wait to purchase Watch Dogs.

jjmesa16 commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

@Specter_Twilight Watch Dogs wasn't really delayed. I think it was ready at the same time or shortly after it wasn't released for the other consoles. Ubisoft refused to release it until Wii U sales got better (ie. the holiday season).

Localization is different than a company delaying a game when it is ready.

jjmesa16 commented on Nintendo Download: 20th November (Europe):

Great to see that watch dogs is finally coming, along with the DLC. Although at this point I think the DLC should be free.

If any of the themes this week actually make it over to NA I might pick up one or two of them. Other than that nothing interests me and I can't afford anything after the bankruptcy I suffered from SSB and AS.

jjmesa16 commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

I'm getting Kirby and Fox on day 1. I might pick up Villager when he comes out and I'm definitely getting Shulk. Shulk will end up being my main but for now it'll probably be Kirby.

Edit: I forgot Roselina. I'll probably get her too.

GameFreak really listens to their fans! They have wanted a Hoenn remake for a long time now. Done. They have also wanted more post game content. Done. Keep up the good work GameFreak. I just wish that the overworld in AS/OR was in 3D.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

@Takerkaneanite6 Great question. I think if you have purchased it, it is already installed on the Wii U. I know when I purchased mine I had to wait for something to download and install. I could be wrong though.

I'm assuming there will be an update tonight/tomorrow that you have to install as well to enable the DLC and possibly turn on Amiibo functionality. I'm not sure why Nintendo would release 2 updates for 1 game in 8 days so I think Amiibo functionality will also be included in the DLC update. That is unless Amiibo functionality has already been turned on for Mario Kart with the latest Wii U update.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

I picked Anthony's 2000's pack. For me it was the best combination of realistic and ambitious.

Tom's pack looked the coolest but I'm not sure anything would actually make it into Mario Kart except for Pit.

Alex's Pack is probably the most realistic but I'm not sure if it's ambitious enough for me.

Damien's pack is somewhere near Anothony's pack. I'm not sure Damien's characters would ever make it to Mario Kart but I could see most his tracks and cars in Mario Kart.

Overall they were all great ideas and I'd be happy to see any of them in Mario Kart.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 5th...:

@dkxcalibur Here is mine:

  1. Mario Kart DLC
  2. Splatoon
  3. Captain Toad
  4. Xenoblade
  5. Majora's Mask
  6. Amiibo Support
  7. Indie Lineup
  8. Kirby
  9. Hyrule + Amiibo
  10. Monster Hunter 4
  11. Duck Hunt
  12. Sonic Demo
  13. Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.
  14. Pikmin Animation
  15. Pikmin 3 Demo

For some reason I'm just not that excited about Code Name: S.T.E.A.M.. I'm not sure if it's the gameplay, the story, or something else. I'll probably get the demo if it's available, and if I like it I'll buy it, but at this point I'm just not that excited about it.

My most anticipated game is probably Splatoon although I'm not sure what to think about the single player mode. The only reason I ranked Mario Kart DLC above everything else, is that it's coming out next week.

jjmesa16 commented on Nintendo Aiming To Create A Stronger Bond With...:

I totally agree that they are behind the times with smartphones but I'm not sure if a Mii app is even close to the solution. An app that integrates a Mii editor, Miiverse, and the eShop would be better. It would be cool to see Nintendo make an app that interfaces with the Wii U but I highly doubt that will ever happen.

If it costs money I don't really see the benefit of buying something like this when I can just do that stuff on my 3DS.

jjmesa16 commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

I don't think I would trade Nintendo games for Call of Duty, but, as a consumer, I would love to have Call of Duty games on my console. If I were a system manufacturer I would definitely want Call of Duty on my console. Have you seen the sales for those games?

I have to say though that Nintendo is doing a very good job of selling other consoles. They are pretty much saying, "If you want to buy Nintendo games, buy a Wii U, and if you want any other games, go for any other console."

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 5th...:

I was kind of disappointed as usual. It's great to see that Majora's Mask is finally coming to 3DS! However Nintendo failed to state any release dates for games coming early next year. Is there anything coming to NA in Q1 of 2015? Also I think a Smash demo would have been great and it would increase the hype even more for Super Smash Bros. and Wii U. That was definitely a missed opportunity. Seeing all of the Amiibo features was great however I wish that there were more features than just costumes for Mario Kart 8. Seems like X is coming along slowly and nothing new was shown off. Looks like it'll be a holiday game next year based on "we are targeting 2015".

My jaw dropped at the beginning of the presentation but the rest of it was just meh

Edit: It looks like Kirby will be coming out in Q1.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: Does Super Smash Bros. Wii U's Smash ...:

@rjejr Up to 8 if you have enough controllers. For me 2 people would have to use the Wii remotes (most likely me so that I'm handicapped) because I don't have enough of the other controllers.

As for Smash Tour it looks like only 4 people can play but I could be wrong.

As for the discussion up above. Smash is a multiplayer game. If you buy any of the games in the series soley for the single player experience then you will be disappointed. The only time I play Smash by myself is if I am training with certain characters or I need to unlock characters/moves. Otherwise I just pull it out to play with friends and family. However all of them are still some of my favorite Nintendo games.

IF YOU ONLY PLAY SINGLE PLAYER YOU PROBABLY SHOULD AVOID SUPER SMASH BROS!

jjmesa16 commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

Its about time. I don't even remember when the last NA direct was (besides the 50 fact extravaganza). It'll be good to see Iwata back and in good health. Hopefully we hear about a release date/month for the New 3DS!

jjmesa16 commented on "Pre-Download" Service to Kick Off With Super ...:

Great new feature but I'm still never going to download retail games for my Wii U until they have a better account system. Once that happens I'll be sure to use this feature.

@RedYoshi999 Me too! It took me 10 hours (from midnight) to download Pokemon X. By that time I could have gone to the store and bought a physical copy. Plus the music is messed up on my digital copy.

jjmesa16 commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire to Be Ava...:

This is one of the most ridiculous bundles I have ever seen from Nintendo. Isn't the point of a bundle to save money? I thought about canceling my preorder for Sapphire but if it's the same price I'll just buy Ruby separately. If it was $60 or even $70 I'd definitely consider it. One of the stupidest bundles ever Nintendo.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: Breaking Down Over 50 Must-See Things...:

#6 would have been great for the 3DS and I'm not sure why it wasn't there. It's possible that the 3DS didn't have enought power to show essentially 2 stages at once.

8 player fighting should be interesting. I'll have to try it out and see how crowded the screen is.

Nice to see that the Temple is back.

jjmesa16 commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

@Ichiban Voice chat would be awesome! Nintendo could regulate it to friend battles that way they don't get an uproar from parents.

I have to say I'm into DLC as well. A dream of mine for this game is cross-platform online play. Say I was on a trip and I only had my 3DS. It would be cool if I could play against my friend, who is on his Wii U. Too bad Nintendo's software and infrastructure aren't built like that.

I really don't get why people want Ridley. Have you people played the past games? He was a boss in Brawl. Why would Nintendo ever make a boss (a giant boss if I may add) a playable character? The playable master hand was a cheat. That doesn't count.

jjmesa16 commented on Nintendo 64x64: Pokemon Snap:

I can see the gyroscope/accelerometer being a cool control mechanism for a new pokemon snap game. Virtual reality would also be cool for the 3DS. Imagine going on a road trip and taking pictures of pokemon outside while in the car, or on a walk.

jjmesa16 commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

Very disappointing that Nintendo couldn't make the adapter work with other games. So it's $20 for the adapter, and you need the controllers which are $30 a piece, for only playing one game? You could spend up to $189.96 for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (not counting any Amiibo). Nintendo is asking you, "How into Super Smash Bros. are you?" Doesn't sound like it worth it to me. I will be buying the $99 bundle though as I already have 3 Gamecube controllers.

jjmesa16 commented on Now You Can Gawk at New Nintendo 3DS Demo Unit...:

@ZenTurtle Thanks for your input. I originally had a 3DS for around 2 years and it was good. I believe that the screen looked better on the small one because of the pixel density. I bought the 3DS XL when it came out because of the size (obviously) which was better for longer durations of gaming. I just don't play as much as I used to and I think the small screens will suffice. Like I said before if Nintendo had upped the screen resolution of the new 3DS XL it would have been a must buy for me.
