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.

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

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...:

@platypus101

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:)

@platypus101

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.

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.

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
Snes...thrived
N64...survived
Gamecube...survived
Wii...thrived
Wii u...survived(?)....I think so.

3ds...profit
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 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.

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.

What ever progress was made to get the wii u console out there to the public consciousness was just set back by this abc report....cause I'm sure a lot more people will see this than a nintendo direct or youtube video.

kendorage commented on Video: New Project CARS Footage Gets Down to N...:

Wii u isn't going to get many racing sims the way 3rd party support is going, and we know nintendo isn't going to make a racing sim, so this will be a definite purchase for me. I just need one great racing sim to tide me over for the consoles lifespan and this could be the one. Although that 90s arcade racer eshop title looks fun too. Both day one purchases.

kendorage commented on Consumers Go Crazy For Wii U Following Xbox On...:

I survived last gen with a wii60 or 360wii combo. This generation i might try a wii u/ps4 combo. Now all we need is to hear from "steambox". Wii u for nintendo exclusives and the eshop and one of the "come at me bro" consoles is good enough for me.

@rjejr

Your idea that nintendo should go third party in regards to home consoles would make sense IF they were still struggling after a few years and all their heavy hitters were out already. But it has only been a matter of months, and we have yet to see the big 5:

Mario kart
Smash brothers
Dedicated zelda game
Dedicated mario game
Dedicated pokemon game

After those 5 system-selling/multi-million copy type games are out(along with others like animal crossing, metroid, donkey kong, pikmin, etc), if the wii u is still struggling then yeah it would be time to consider that option. But lets wait and see what happens till then.
