I don't know what's so great about a game being "open world."

I've played a lot of RPGs that aren't open world and I still think they're pretty massive and open...

And I've played games typically classified as open world and it's a pain trying to play them. Unless you know who's giving you story missions, it's a trek toward death. You go left, you die. Right, you die. Unless you get levels/items from the story, you can't even really play the game.

I don't have a problem with Zelda's world and I don't know why anyone does.

I haven't played Bayonetta 2, yet (I have it, but I'm trying to clear my backlog, too...), but from what Bayonetta had to offer, I'd support Bayonetta 3...

...if it came to the Wii U. I don't doubt that Bayonetta 3 could make it's way to the PS4, XB1, and PC. I'm not saying Platinum wouldn't make a Wii U version...but it's possible, I suppose.

With the disappointment surrounding the New 3DS, I'm actually a little excited about the release (FINALLY) of Flipnote Studio 3D.

I don't get what the deal is with sharing online, though. For a dollar a month...to share online...? They stopped it because of offensive material? Guess it's a good thing they're not in charge of the Colors!3D Gallery, huh?

I dunno. I'd think that for people paying for an online fee, that'd be enough to save the kids from blood, gore, and porn.

All in all, I thought it was pretty good. Glad to see more Splatoon info. A bit upset about no standard size New 3DS confirmation and no chargers included, but I'll live. I'll probably skip the N3DS and wait for the next one.

What did surprise me was how amazing Xenoblade Chronicles X was and Wii games for download on Wii U. I missed out on Mario Galaxy, so I'll be scooping that up right away! Wish I'd waited for Prime Trilogy, but I have the first two on GCN and recently got Corruption.

What?? At 9am...? Darn. I'll be in class, then.

Guess I'll catch it afterward.

I've decided that the best way to enjoy Nintendo Directs and E3 is to go into it without any expectations. Whatever disappoints me would likely have disappointed me regardless and I don't shrug off massive or impressive reveals because it's not Metroid U or Star Fox (which we are finally getting).

While you all argue about total sales and semantics and other stuff, I'll just casually sit back this year and play the games that come to me as well as clear my backlog.

I tried to keep up with all of this nonsense through 2014 and in the end... It didn't matter. As long as the Wii U continues to get new and exciting games, I'll be happy whether the Wii U has 8 million units sold or 18 million units.

@kidwalrus Probably just T. If they simply added Bayonetta as a racer, it wouldn't be that different from Cia in Hyrule Warriors. And besides that, Snake from Metal Gear (an M rated series) was in Brawl and THAT wasn't rated M. It was only even rated T because of the Wario Waft.

I was watching The Judge and remembered this came out on the eShop.

I'm so glad it's all three of the originals for $30. On Amazon, they're charging just about that much for ONE. I certainly feel like I've saved a few bucks...

Anyway, I love it and recommend it to anyone who hasn't played the originals. After seeing a few comparisons online, if you have the originals at your disposal or can find them cheaper than I have, pass on this title.

kyuubikid213 commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

@Dipper723 Didn't a Dreamcast game come out earlier this year?

On topic, though, I didn't think Frozen was as great as everyone was making it out to be. Yeah, the songs were alright and I'll admit I sing along if I hear "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman" or "Let It Go", but aside from those music numbers, there wasn't much to the rest of the film.

I know I like to rant, but I'll keep my reasons for not absolutely loving this movie brief. The twist ending was silly and didn't really make sense. Without the music, the movie's just kind of boring. The trailers didn't advertise the good parts of the movie, just Olaf. Elsa is literally there for 15 minutes of the movie and the rest of the screen time is split among other characters and Olaf. And lastly, that's not how loving parents act (in reference to the beginning of the movie).

I voted Smash, Shovel Knight, Smash, Shovel Knight, Smash.

I don't personally own Shovel Knight, but I hear so many good things about it everywhere that I feel it deserves to win. As for Smash, it was certainly a toss-up, but with all of the big-name, heavy-hitters that came out across all platforms this year, I think Smash Bros. is the only one that didn't disappoint the majority of those that bought it.

When I get an Amiibo figure, it's coming out of the box. I can respect collectors and those who like the packaging, but for me, I want the figure(s) to have a nice spot on my desk.

I just don't like buying things to keep them in their original packaging. I still have my Wii, 3DS, and Wii U boxes, but that's not for resale or collecting...it's just easier to store it when I have to move or if I'm going on a long trip. I'll probably toss the Amiibo box(es) because I've never kept a toy's packaging.

kyuubikid213 commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

I'm not saying I WOULDN'T, but at the moment, I don't see a reason for a Nintendo Phone.

Personally, I haven't heard of a gaming phone that's done well and using smartphones for gaming isn't as great as a dedicated console. Scrunched controls aren't my thing.

I put Maybe. Whatever happens happens. If it happens and it proves to be a viable phone that (following Nintendo's history) gives you a good experience at a low cost, I'll be on-board. I won't buy a phone just because it's got Nintendo printed on the back.

As for Nintendo games on existing phones, I'm not rich and I'd buy a PS4 or One before dropping the same $450 on a phone. I have a smartphone that can do a few apps and 3G. I'm fine with it. It can't run games, but that's what my 3DS is for.

kyuubikid213 commented on Nintendo Reportedly States That No First Wave ...:

I kinda figured this was going to happen.

Many people here and in other forums have pointed out that the Wii U, although doing better than it had been, is not selling phenomenally well. The GameCube Adapter and Amiibos weren't made in an insanely high volume because of this. Now that Nintendo sees the demand, they're more than likely going to produce a ton more.

I certainly hope I can get my hands on that Adapter and a Shulk Amiibo.

I want the adapter because I highly doubt Nintendo is only going to use it for Smash. From the developer that looks at gameplay before anything and has ALL control options for Super Mario 3D World, Smash Bros., and Mario Kart, I don't think this peripheral will go by the wayside.

@NbaJunkie You're right. I'm completely disappointed with the GamePad implementation in Wind Waker HD... And Super Mario 3D World... And Lego City... And...

Wait a second... Nintendo didn't delay the game for six months for these games' GamePad features.

Still a game I'll get used if I'm still interested in the future.

kyuubikid213 commented on Nexis Games Defends UCraft's Multiplatform Mov...:

@Quorthon I'd be right there with you...if it wasn't for the ocean of garbage third party multiplats on the Wii U.

It's not that Wii U owners don't want anything that doesn't have Mario, Link, or any of Nintendo's other main figures; it's that we've come to know that if we want a high-quality, non-gimped game, it makes more sense to get a Nintendo game than anyone else's or a game built from the ground up on the system.

As for Ubisoft specifically, I wouldn't be upset with them over it...except that was a game that could have gotten Wii Us moving early in the system's life. Ubisoft making the game a multiplat hurt starting Wii U sales by a fair amount. On top of that, the game was already done for the Wii U and there was no reason to delay it so it could release on time with the other versions. Wii U owners don't get that luxury. In fact, just look at Watch_Dogs, a game that showed up six months late on ONLY our platform.

I hope there's a Master Quest in Majora's Mask 3D. I really liked this in Ocarina of Time 3D because it was like getting two games in one.

Majora's Mask is such a great game already, I'd like to see a Master Quest version with the world flipped and the dungeons changed.

kyuubikid213 commented on The Nintendo Wii U Is Better Value For Money T...:

I only agree because the Wii U has games and experiences you can only get on the Wii U.

Sure, the PS4 and One have third party support that the Wii U will likely never see, but they're no reason to drop $400. Every worthwhile game on the PS4 and One is also available on the PS3, 360, and PC. If you have one of those, there is absolutely no reason to upgrade. There really isn't. Last of Us Remastered? Great, but it's on PS3. Halo Master Chief Collection? Okay, fine, but every Halo game excluding Halo 2 is on the 360. Destiny, Watch_Dogs, Evil Within, Shadow of Mordor, Call of Duty? All available on PS3 and 360. Assassin's Creed Unity? Hardly worth the upgrade based on the press so far. Ryse, Titanfall, Knack, Forza, Dead Rising? All either ported to PC, underwhelming, or both.

At this point in time, I agree with Reggie. If Sony or Microsoft start making PS4 and One exclusives that are worth the price of admission and start leaving the PS3 and 360 behind, my thoughts might change. However, we're now a year out and there hasn't been a thing that (in my opinion) warrants the purchase of either console.

Call me a fanboy if you will, but that's my opinion. I see no reason to upgrade my 360 to a One or buy a PS4.

So far... I've decided on getting a Link and Shulk Amiibo.

I still consider myself quite lucky with Xenoblade Chronicles, though. I went to my GameStop just as the praise for the game was building online and saw it on the Pre-Owned shelf for $45. I bought it, despite that being the last of my pocket money, and I'm enjoying it thoroughly. Imagine my surprise when I hop online again a week later to see GameStop is selling the game for almost $90!

kyuubikid213 commented on Nintendo Outlines Confusing amiibo Save Data L...:

I don't really know how to feel about this news. As of now, there aren't any games besides Smash Bros. that will also write to the Amiibo, right? And the other games will simply see if the Amiibo figure is Mario, Link, Samus, or whoever else for different in game bonuses?

At the moment, I don't see a big issue with it. I'll likely only have my data saved on the Link figure I plan to get so I have the data when I go and play with my friends. As for Mario Kart 8 and other games, they'll give me whatever bonuses come with them, so that'll be cool.

Also, I don't think buying multiple figures will be an issue either. Collectors already buy everything. That's why they're collectors. And if there are game specific Amiibos, if people want the Amiibo features used in their games, they'll get the figures they need. If they don't, they don't have to get the figures.

As for the storage space each Amiibo has, I don't know if that'll be a big issue for me because if it reads and writes quickly and works like it's supposed to, I'll be satisfied. I don't need the price of the Amiibo figures any higher just to give it more storage space when every game in my Wii U library won't use it anyway. If only a bit more than half of the Wii U's library uses Amiibo and only a portion of that writes to the Amiibo, small storage space shouldn't be an issue. And besides, having a bunch of little figures on my desk won't upset me.

kyuubikid213 commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:

I never played Super Mario Bros. on the NES, but I did play the Virtual Console version. I can't say that I felt the controls were bad. They were actually really responsive to me. Mario gained momentum and I could run. Okay. Got it. Bring on the game. Unless you never get used to his momentum and slowing him down, I guess you could say you feel the game controlled poorly. For me, it didn't take me long to grow accustomed to slowing down or even jumping backwards to control Mario how I wanted to.

Extremely responsive game. Played it through to the end (thanks to restore points. maybe I'll try without them someday). Still working on Super Mario Bros. 2: Lost Levels.

kyuubikid213 commented on Eiji Aonuma Confirms Majora's Mask 3D Has Been...:

@jbunker7 I didn't read, but know that between Ocarina of Time 3D's release and now, we DID get Skyward Sword, Wind Waker HD, and A Link Between Worlds. Also, they've been working on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. I imagine they didn't release it sooner (or give us a ton of information) so we didn't have a Zelda overload.

If that wasn't the case, I would imagine that releasing Majora's Mask 3D sooner would make it seem as though Nintendo wasn't focusing on future Zelda experiences, but remakes of the old adventures. We already have Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker as remakes on their respective systems and A Link Between Worlds does use the Link to the Past map despite the new story and gameplay elements.

Personally, I don't mind it coming out 4 years later. It allowed me to really sink my teeth into Ocarina of Time 3D, Wind Waker HD, Skyward Sword, and A Link Between Worlds without feeling overwhelmed. I still have a backlog of games, but my Zelda itch has definitely been scratched between then and now.

I got it from Club Nintendo a couple years back.

I beat it last year around this time and I absolutely loved the game. It's atmosphere was amazing, the characters were all interesting, and the stories in the game all hit me emotionally.

I WILL get the 3DS remake because I loved this game so much.

I got the 3DS remake of Ocarina of Time not long after I played the original N64 version at a friend's house.

kyuubikid213 commented on Poll: Buying Bayonetta 2 - eShop Convenience o...:

I really want this game, but don't have the money to get it just yet. I'll either ask for it for Christmas or use some extra cash from all the extra hours I'll work during Winter Break.

I want a physical copy because, even though I won't have to worry about space with my 320GB hard drive, I like having the physical copy. I think this was a debate a couple years back when the 3DS started retail digital downloads. The convenience of a digital copy is great, but having the physical box (in my opinion) is even better. Sure, there's not a ton of stuff in there anymore thanks to digital manuals and "going green", but it's still far more satisfying to open up my cabinet and see the shelves lined with games than to open up my Steam account and see lines of text showing how many games I have. Then, of course, there's the obvious reason of technology failure. If my laptop ever dies, there goes pretty much everything. Sure, the games will already be bought and I can redownload them on a new device, but it's so much more hassle than simply putting the disc in a new system.

Uh... Yeah, a bit of a tangent there... I'm getting it physically whenever I do get it.

kyuubikid213 commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

@Tops No, you get my point, though. Those games were made by huge developers with great and even amazing track records. In the end, those games ended up not being as good as the rest of Ubisoft and Bungie's respective libraries. Good games? Sure, but nowhere near as good as past titles.

Just because Mad Men Football is made by one guy with minimal experience doesn't automatically mean he's doomed to fail. We all certainly thought Destiny was going to exceed expectations with an exponentially larger budget than this guy and the development team behind Halo, but it didn't. Who is to say this guy can't pull off something great?

My expectations argument wouldn't hold water if the titans of development didn't have their missteps. Heck, even Nintendo was behind it's fair share of disappointments with Virtual Boy, Zelda II, and Yoshi's New Island.

kyuubikid213 commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

@MikeLove Watch_Dogs and Destiny were a disappointment to many gamers, or at the very least the vocal internet audience for the games.

We don't know WHAT this game will be like. It hasn't released yet. If the game is awful, fine. If it's good, fine. I won't pass judgment on it until it comes around.

Again, if you'd read my posts, you'd see that I'm not putting Mad Men Football in the same "stratosphere" as Watch_Dogs and Destiny. I'm only saying that these two games were made by developers that have created games that gamers, in general, love and consider timeless (Rayman and Halo for example), but they also created these two games that are both considered overhyped and mediocre by a lot of reviewers on the internet and a lot of gamers. We don't know whether or not AE Games is capable of making terrible or amazing games, so we'll see when it comes around.

I'm glad to know I don't know how things work. Much like you know that this single developer who's never made a game before is destined to make Mad Men Football a terrible and unplayable game. Wait. What's that? You can't see the future? Okay then. Relax until the game comes out. Maybe this guy'll surprise us, maybe he wont. Chill. (By the way, these talented programmers apparently need 6 extra months of development time to make a game on a console they've already developed on multiple times...(Assassin's Creed III and IV, Rayman, Splinter Cell, and Child of Light to name a few...)

Well, by the way the comments are looking now, if Minecraft didn't exist already and someone came to the drawing board with Minecraft concept art, not many people would be interested because it didn't look good. Personally, I'd only seen a few people interested in Minecraft before it grew as large as it did. No one thought Minecraft was going to get as big as it did. Not even Notch. Whether or not people doubted Minecraft would be a hit has everything to do with this developer and this game. If this game is a hit, then this guy's reputation will skyrocket for being able to make a decent game. If it's a flop, then he's been spouting nonsense this entire time and THEN we can talk about how bad the game is or how ridiculous the developer is.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to play Hyrule Warriors with my friend.

And to answer your question, no. I haven't played Watch_Dogs or Destiny. My friends that own Destiny think it's fun, but nothing special (certainly not $500 million special) and I bought Watch_Dogs with the season pass for my brother and he says that the game is just okay without the DLC.

@mjc0961 I never said it was useless. I was saying I, personally, am interested in downloadable titles and the space ended up getting taken away by those and the Assassin's Creed update.

For someone not interested in downloads with games that don't have 1 GB updates, the 8GB will last a while.

I was saying that even WITH all of the downloaded titles I got, it wasn't until this summer that I figured I needed a hard drive.

Should Nintendo have released an 8GB console in 2012? Not necessarily, but Microsoft does have their 4GB 360 (which most recent games require a hard drive to play)

kyuubikid213 commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

@MikeLove If you could stop acting like you're so much smarter than me and actually read my posts, I would appreciate it.

I never said Destiny and Watch_Dogs had anything to do with the development of this game. I was merely saying that much like many people here are judging this game as heavily as they are before the game is even out, many people were praising Watch_Dogs and Destiny before they launched and now that they're on the market, they're not as great as everyone thought they were going to be. Plain and simple.

If the game is a good game, why is that a bad thing? Why is it so unbelievable that these developers could make a good (if not great) football game. There's nothing illogical about that because the game isn't out yet. I'm not saying it WILL BE. I'm saying it COULD BE. I'm pretty sure when Minecraft was in the works, no one thought it was going to be a massive hit, but it is. I'm pretty sure a lot of people thought some of the 3D Sonic games were going to be excellent considering the series' track record, but Sonic '06 is one of the worst games ever.

kyuubikid213 commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

@Jazzer94 My point isn't that Destiny or Watch_Dogs are crap, just that they are below what the developers, who have proven in the past to make extraordinary games, usually put out.

I'm not saying this is on the same level as Destiny or Watch_Dogs. I'm just saying that this game has garnered flak and borderline hatred before the game has even released. Whereas Watch_Dogs and Destiny were practically praised with footage and interviews only to be more of the same and mediocre compared to other games on the market within the same genre.

I'm not saying this game will be the best game ever. Just give it a chance. If it's terrible when it comes out, so be it. If it's actually a properly functioning game, so be it. If it is an excellent football game on par with EA's offerings, so be it.

Seriously though, it's not like the 8GB Wii U was completely useless, people. If you go purely physical, 8GB is more than enough space for save data. I only have my hard drive because eShop titles were interesting to me and Assassin's Creed IV had a 1500 MB update. Otherwise, 8GB got me from 18 Nov 2012 to just this summer.

If it plays well and has a bit more polish, I don't see why it couldn't be a good game. Personally, I'm not into sports games, but they haven't done anything so far for me to believe they can't make a decent game.

Heck, we all know Ubisoft is capable of creating masterpieces and they managed to pull out Watch_Dogs (not EVEN talking about the Wii U version). The guys behind Halo (one of the most critically acclaimed franchises) even managed to make Destiny.

I say give 'em a chance. This IS a pre-alpha build. If it doesn't improve dramatically, but the game plays well enough without a choppy framerate, I see no reason to give it flak.

Buying this game won't improve the Wii U's third party support.

If everyone bought this after what Ubisoft has pulled, we'd probably get more third party games, but they'd all be full-price, lacking in features, terribly optimized, measly GamePad integrated, rushed/delayed to infinity games.

I will put down my money on third party titles that are made properly on the system and/or utilize it in a way that couldn't be done (with the same experience) on another console. ZombiU is a great example. Batman Arkham City was made properly on the system and (to my knowledge) includes all DLC. Heck, even Call of Duty (Black Ops II) runs properly and looks a bit better than the 360/PS3 versions as well as having that dual screen local multiplayer and multiple control options.
