My gaming tastes are very diverse and I can enjoy almost any genre. I split my gaming time fairly evenly between my Wii U and PS3, though I also find time to enjoy my 3DS XL, Vita, and 360. I believe in being a multi-console gamer; those who stick to just one are missing out on so much.

The Wii version looked quite blurry by 2006 standards, let alone today's standards. And not to be a troll, but this supposed HD version looks like absolute garbage. Clearly not much effort has been put into improving the visuals. This is nothing more then a cheap cash grab, but I still bet Nintendo charges full price for this. Pathetic.

This all sounds fine to me. The mini games in past entries in the series were stuff that I'd play once and never return to again, so I have no issue whatsoever with there being a complete lack of mini games here. Second, being able to play "pure tennis" without all the chance shots sounds perfect to me. I was sold right then and there.

Great preview.

So apparently everybody decided to write essays in the comment section for this article... chill people.

Yes, for families with young children the Wii U has always made sense. For everybody else and for those who care about third party games it makes sense to have a Wii U and one of the other two consoles.



larry_koopa commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015 - Q4 ...:

That is about the saddest list I have ever seen in my entire life. Fast Racing Neo (stupid title notwithstanding) is something I am really looking forward to, but other than that all this list does is highlight the point that the Wii U gave up once Smash Bros came out. Bring on the NX!

Too bad Ubisoft wouldn't take a hint from this. Delaying a game to add more polish as opposed to rushing a November release and shipping a game that simply isn't finished...

I'm hoping they're going to take this time to add Pro Controler support, but I sincerely doubt it. Still, if they can make this game any less awful than it was at E3 it'll be a massive improvement.



larry_koopa commented on Review: Super Mario Maker (Wii U):

Meh. I would have preferred Mario Galaxy 3 as the 30th Anniversary celebration. I have zero interest in creating stages myself, or playing frustratingly difficult stages that other people create. That does not sound fun.

I hope this does well, it's just not for me in the slightest and I know I wouldn't enjoy it. I do find it hard to believe that this is the "definitive" Wii U game. Last time I checked Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros exist. Those are definitive games. This is a rom hacking tool that Nintendo just happened to release themselves...



larry_koopa commented on The Smaller New Nintendo 3DS Model is Coming t...:

Could not care less. I upgraded from the original 3DS to the 3DS XL when the latter first launched and I've never had any interest in ever buying another one of their remodels.

Just make an actual "new" handheld and I might be interested.



larry_koopa commented on Mario History: Super Smash Bros. Melee - 2001:

To me this will always be the best/my favourite in the series, though the Wii U version is a pretty close second.

Still, the memories of playing Melee with my friends growing up is something that I'll never have with the Wii U game.



larry_koopa commented on A Resident Evil 2 Remake Has Been Confirmed:

You know, when you possess other consoles besides just Nintendo ones you don't have to hope beyond hope that every third-party game might somehow make it to the one console that you own. You can just play every game and not have to come here and complain how all these evil developers are being mean by not bringing their games to Nintendo systems.



larry_koopa commented on Feature: The Unexpected Legacy of Wii Music:

Yeah sorry, this game sucks. It epitomizes everything that was wrong with the Wii/Nintendo's casual focus in general.

The Wii caused me to buy a PS3 when at that point I had always been a Nintendo-only gamer. I still play my PS3 more than my Wii U. To me the Wii will always be remembered as the system that made me embrace Sony, and to a lesser extent Microsoft. Garbage like Wii Music are a big part of that. Better luck with the NX, Nintendo.



larry_koopa commented on Soapbox: It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't...:

... Or, you could just buy the console in question and stop complaining about all the games that the Wii U can't give you. I'm sorry, unless you only care about "Nintendo" games, that's pretty much all you're going to get. Nintendo let Rare go in 2002 and they were purchased by Microsoft. Why exactly would this collection be on a Nintendo console?



larry_koopa commented on Exclusive: Project CARS "Simply Too Much For W...:

Maybe next time Nintendo will make a console that can actually handle third-party games.

I don't really feel sorry for fanboys who only own a Wii U and magically expect third-party games to arrive for the system. Just buy a PS4 like the rest of the world so you can actually play everything that comes out. Stop crying when your under powered Wii U can't handle an X1 or PS4 game.



larry_koopa commented on First Impressions: Trying to Believe in Devil'...:

The game looks absolutely terrible. There's plenty of other outstanding games available on Wii U, so why even bother with this? I know Wii U-only gamers are starved for third-party games, but don't settle on garbage like this just because nothing else is available on the console.



larry_koopa commented on Nintendo NX Will Avoid The Launch Issues Which...:

The only issue with the Wii U launch was that they were launching a crappy product which didn't have any great software to speak of until several months after launch. It still only has a handful of great games, but that's a Nintendo home console for you. They support it for 3-5 years, and third parties support it for 0 years.

"Look, we know that the fans want a straight Samus Aran game"

Then make one, you idiot.

This is not a Wind Waker situation. Though he's right that people were not crazy about the graphical style in the beginning, the fans at least knew that Wind Waker was going to be an actual Zelda game. The same is not true about Federation Force.



larry_koopa commented on Tablets Stole The Wii U's Thunder, Laments Shi...:

Well I'm glad that he admitted that they were wrong from the outset. Usually Nintendo doesn't fall on their sword like this. I bet they still think that online gaming will never catch on, which was their company line during the GameCube era...

But seriously, "tablets stole the Wii U's thunder..." Umm, excuse me, by the time the Wii U came to market iPads and other tablets were everywhere. What exactly did they expect?



larry_koopa commented on Video: Star Fox Zero - What We Know So Far:

Great video, folks! Much appreciated.

Now, referring to the game itself: the fact that you simply can't play the game without the GamePad is a huge deal-breaker for me. Unless they somehow revamp everything so that you can play with the Pro Controller I doubt I will ever own this game. I just want to play a classic Star Fox game in HD with normal controls. Not too much to ask.

This is why I like Sony. When you're looking forward to a PlayStation game you know you're going to play it with a DualShock. You don't have to worry about them doing something absolutely idiotic with the control scheme.



larry_koopa commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

Right, just like online gaming wasn't becoming a thing in the early to mid 2000s. Nintendo said that would never catch on; they'd rather you connect your Game Boy Advance to your Game Cube - that's the future! They ended up dugging themselves a hole that they're still trying to get out of.

Nice to know that Nintendo learns from their mistakes. Forever being left behind...



larry_koopa commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

Thank you for such an honest article here.

To me this game sounds like an absolute mess. Just make a normal Star Fox game with good graphics and Pro Controller support. That really is not asking too much... None of this two screen garbage.



larry_koopa commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

Their biggest game of the show was probably Star Fox Zero, and yet I have no interest in it as I will not play a game where I have to divide my focus between my TV screen and the GamePad. I just want to play Star Fox, on an HD screen, and with a Pro Controller, but apparently that is too much to ask.

Nintendo's insistence on "changing the way we play games" is what drove me to the PS3 in the last generation: I don't care about your motion controls, I don't care about your tablet controllers. I just want to play games normally.



larry_koopa commented on Review: Samurai Defender (3DS eShop):

Anybody else think that the character in green with his sword above his head looks like Toon Link from Wind Waker? That was my first thought when I saw this review on the home page. Those eyes...
