kendorage commented on Nintendo Download: 10th September (North America):

Going to target and get mario maker with the free mario rubiks cube thingy they got going, should look nice next to my splatoon water gun. As for download, wait for reviews of all the games or just grab tecmo bowl.



kendorage commented on Editorial: Satoru Iwata Embodied The Playful B...:

I completely agree with you. I hope in his last days he had good thoughts about the recent success of amiibos, splatoon, and about his tenure overall with nintendo...

And not thoughts about all the hate and negativity he must have read about with the e3 presentation. Regardless, RIP mr Iwata.



kendorage commented on Nintendo 64x64: Top Gear Rally:

i liked top gear overdrive more cause it was a fun arcade style racer, but top gear rally was pretty good too. unless i missed it, hope world driver championship makes the "64" list. that was probably my favorite sim racer along with the f1 game on the n64.



kendorage commented on Nintendo Download: 16th October (North America):

this is actually a good week: lots of discounts, new indie games, dlc content, and a gba classic...and people are still "nothing this week" and complaining about the eshop?

i can understand waiting for reviews or disapointment in not getting your favorite retro game, but i can also see 3rd party developers reading comments and thinking..." nintendo owners dont buy 3rd party games".

of course, if people are mainly saying the VC needs to have more games than i would totally agree. still, maybe pick up one of the new or discounted eshop indie games instead.



kendorage commented on Nintendo 64x64: F-Zero X:

so smooth and fast with all those vehicles on screen, i was amazed at the time. didnt care that the backgrounds were sparse, had too much fun on the actual tracks. great game, 9/10.



kendorage commented on Nintendo 64x64: Cruis'n USA:

beetle adventure racing, san francisco rush, top gear rally, world driver championship, mrc racing(?), gt64, automobili lamborghini(sp), top gear overdrive were all racing games i found more enjoyable than crusin usa.



kendorage commented on Feature: Ahead Of Hyrule Warriors, We Take A L...:

i have a dynasty warriors & samurai warriors game on my now red-ringed 360. i like the games cause of the japanese and chinese history & characters, and the fact that i consider them the action-game equivalent of the old koei strategy games i love so much(nobunagas ambition, romance of the three kingdoms 2, etc).

might buy koei's warriors orochi for wii u still, but will probably just get hyrule warriors first. looking forward to see the zelda world adapted to this series.



kendorage commented on Nintendo 64x64: Hybrid Heaven:

winback64, isnt that a koei game? anyway, winback and hybrid heaven were two games i never got a chance to try out on the n64. heard good things about both though.



kendorage commented on Nintendo 64x64: Buck Bumble:

im in the states, but i used to buy total64 magazine cause for some reason my local grocery store carried it. then they stopped. really loved that magazine, still have half a dozen in a box. not sure why they gave buck bumble a 92 though lol.

havent been keeping up with this series of articles on the 64, but apparently its random games and not 64 best on the console? looking forward to seeing the final 64 games chosen. big fan of the n64 with a still working one in a box in a closet(not gathering dust, but to prevent it from collecting dust)



kendorage commented on Nintendo Confirms Two More Virtual Console Tit...:

nobunaga's ambition!?!? sold!!!

@ rougeleader wait, what? 3 kingdoms 12 is on wii u(im guessing japan only)? sold!!!

i like the dynasty & samurai warriors hack n slash fests, but i miss the old turn-based strategy games of the romance series. bring #12 over, or at least put three kingdoms ll(snes) on the vc.



kendorage commented on New Project CARS Screenshots Race Into View:

oh...lots of cool screenshots worthy of being avatar or wallpaper pics:)

if this eventually gets cancelled on wii u, it will be one of those rare times that i will be disappointed in saving $60 as opposed to spending it.

lets hope it all turns out ok.



kendorage commented on Miiverse Tells the Tale of a Broken Mario Kart...:

I pre-ordered mine from target. got a free Mario key chain with the card, will get a free $5 gift card when I show up to get the game, and apparently will get a free wii wheel with the game according to this weeks ad. I guess those 3 things might be worth a couple of extra days of waiting if I stick with my preorder.



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

its all old-school for me this wknd.

xbox360- will play or set up a few demos on ncaa march madness to simulate the final 4.
wii u- will be playing advance wars & metroid fusion for the 1st time after i buy an eshop card.
pc- maybe start another scenario on shogun total war(yeah, the old, original version)



kendorage commented on Pure Chess Will Checkmate Your Wii U And 3DS V...:

so the roman(?) chess pieces dont actually fight when you move them ala battle chess back in the day? next-gen, i am disappoint:(

jk, i actually might get this despite not being good at chess. cross platform online play helps seal the deal.



kendorage commented on Nintendo's Expensive New Development Building ...:

i want to know what their break room looks like. perhaps a wii u for employees to play with and be inspired by....or just a couple of vending machines with over priced chips?

also, i get what everybody is saying with ...its the inside that counts, structural sturdiness, functional simplicity, etc... but you would think the nintendo letters would be in color at least to stand out a bit.



kendorage commented on Nintendo to Step Up Character IP Licensing, In...:

I hope they contact sega and go half with them on a football(USA-style) game featuring nintendo mascots. This would allow both companies to share the cost/risk of the game, allow for wii u to fill in a sports genre gap(madden 13 not withstanding), and allow sega to bring back their football franchise back as an exclusive to the wii u(since they can't have the nfl license thanks to ea).

Gameplay wise they could have a sim mode with heavy customizable features, and an arcade mode with power ups and gameplay similar to an nfl blitz or mutant league-style hockey game on the genesis.

Also, a 1st or 3rd person shooter with nintendo characters......but in a much more colorful game, with creative world/arenas , fun weapons and online emphasis. Team zelda vs team mario, etc.

Crazy ideas, I know. But these would be fun to me and fill in some game genre gaps and help alleviate costs if nintendo goes half on the project. Plus, because they get to use licensed nintendo characters, the game might sell better or have immediate brand recognition for 3rd parties who are worried their game might not sell.



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


Yes I wrote that. But I'm afraid you inferred to much from that comment. I merely meant that wii u owners want the new controller that came with the wii u, not have to use the remotes from the wii. When the gamepad is the new selling point of a new console for new game experiences, obviously most people want to use the new gamepad. Right? And you have to admit, the gamepad is kinda different from a wii remote.

So i wasn't upset you said crazy, I was upset you insinuated that I said new controller = more fun as that was not the point I was making at all. But if it was a misunderstanding, fair enough:)



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


And I don't like it when people talk off topic or change the subject. Are you even replying to the correct post? All i said was that the gamepad was a great controller and unique and that wii u owners want/should have more than one per console since local multiplayer is stressed so much. Why should only one person get to enjoy their own gamepad while others have to settle for old wii remotes?

I didn't mention ps or xbox controllers at all.



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

I love the gamepad, and think its a great idea. Here's the problem... there's only one allowed per console. Because nintendo stresses local multiplayer, and not a lot of other titles have online play, only one person gets to use this unique gamepad.

Its like inviting friends over and saying "check out my new wii u and this great new controller. Let's play some multiplayer. I will use the cool gamepad...everyone else use the half-decade old remotes".

Not fun watching one person enjoy the new controller( and casual consumers will think its just an accessory or new controller option when they see everyone else with an old remote in the ad). And passing the gamepad around gets old. Gamers want their own.

Either make wii u compatible with more gamepads and sell gamepads individually, or at the very least package a pro controller or wii mote plus with wii u's. But don't give up on the gamepad(more games that utilize its features would help too of course). If you are going to stress local mp, people want their own unique gamepad.



kendorage commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd January (North America):

I don't understand. If you are losing money in your last earnings report, and you have a slow retail release month...why would you not load up on VC releases to help with both problems(make profit and fill in game gaps)?

I haven't given up on my wii u, has nintendo? I know jan is considered a slow month in general for games, but nintendo needs to be agressive and change their gameplan. It makes no sense to me. Mighty bomb jack is the major/only "new" option this wk? Really?

If only nintendo diehard fans are supporting nintendo now, then they need to support and cater to us. We have money and are willing to spend it. ' Grandpa casual' and 'non-informed grandma' ain't gonna pay your bills nintendo. We are.

Sorry, end rant.



kendorage commented on Kirby: Triple Deluxe Makes Japanese Chart Déb...:

Those thinking the wii u will be number one again.....plz stop.

Those wishing nintendo would end the wii u just because it isn't number one.....plz stop.

Those hoping to play upcoming 1st/2nd party wii u games, eshop games, and wii back catalogue games on their wii u in the next few years.....plz continue.

I'm heartbroken as much as the next person that I won't get to play madden and
1st person shooter #203 on wii u, but that's why I will eventually add a ps4/xbox1 to my wii u. I just hope they don't fight next to each other on my console stand. Oh wait, they are inanimate objects, nm.

(My opinion only, sorry to offend)



kendorage commented on Site News: How was 2013 for Nintendo Life?:

Used to lurk at ign, eurogamer, and wiifanboy recently. Heck, used to even visit nintendojo and nintendorks(remember them?) Before them. Now I only have nintendolife bookmarked. Friendly place and good site layout. Congrats on 2013 and here's for a great 2014.

(From a current wiiu/360 owner and future ps4/xbox1 owner)



kendorage commented on Nintendo Looking Into "Little Experiences" on ...:

Yes, an all in one nintendo app with the icon being yoshi or marios face. Or maybe a widget that you can customize yourself and that gives you all the latest news, reviews, trailers, info on wii u and 3ds without having to search on youtube or nintendos official site. Millions of smartphones and tablets with a nintendo app is a good thing.



kendorage commented on Tech Site The Verge Thinks The Wii U's Failure...:

My stupid opinion chart:

Nes ...thrived
Wii u...survived(?)....I think so.

License and merchandising...profit
War chest reserves...profit
Wii u...revenue loss....3 out of 4 isn't bad.

Xbox one...going after hardcore adults
Ps4...going after hardcore adults
Steambox...going after hardcore adults
Wii u...going after anyone/everyone. There will be a market for them.

My crazy opinion/verdict- nintendo = not doomed.
(This was meant for mr pachter and ifans who routinely suggest nintendo give up consoles and portables and be 3rd party to apple)



kendorage commented on Wii U Sales Jump Again as Nintendo Maintains H...:

Congrats to wii u. I was glancing at the charts, and the impressive showing from the 3ds, then I noticed for ps3....

Nobunagas ambition: creation(tecmo-koei).!?!?!?

Wth??? Is that coming to NA? If so, time to get a ps3(to go with my wii u)



kendorage commented on Review: 3D Altered Beast (3DS eShop):

Didn't I read on here that there was a huge debate among the nintendolife staff concerning this game or remake? Or did I imagine that? Might be interesting to get a transcript or maybe have an article of who took what side.



kendorage commented on Feature: Great Nintendo 64 Multiplayer Games Y...:

tetris 64, battle tanx and snowboard kids were really fun. never was able to get a hold of gauntlet legends and rage wars though. I will add top gear overdrive and bio-freaks as personal picks for fun/overlooked multiplayer games.
