Nico07 commented on Nintendo Download: 26th June (North America):

@XCWarrior Some people won't be happy until Smash Bros releases. Myself I will be grabbing the last two Wii Sports Club titles when available for DL. I wish Nintendo would push out a few N64 and DS games for Wii U VC. It will be interesting to see if when DS games like Mario Kart DS releases if it has online play or not. Can't wait.

Nico07 commented on Talking Point: New Ideas, Not New IPs, Are The...:

@torotoid64 What you suggest is part of the problem. As has been mentioned in this article and has been said by others, but most gamers don't want innovative new IP. Most of us say we do, but when it comes to what games we will ACTUALLY buy we want them to have Mario on the cover or the phrase Call of Duty. Nintendo is great at producing content and then matching it to a new or existing IP.

In my opinion, the Wii U has a lot of great content. Sure it doesn't have Smash Brothers or a new Zelda yet, but I have over 30 games for the Wii U. The Mario games (including Mario Kart 8) are great bringing fresh "New" level design and gameplay. The addition of an onscreen map and inventory as well as updated HD graphics for Wind Waker are great. But some of the games I have most enjoyed are NintendoLand, Game and Wario, ZombiU, Rayman Legends, the four Lego games, Most Wanted U, Pikmin 3, and even Tank!Tank!Tank!. Most of these games that are available cross platform offer great features on Wii U such as seperate screen multiplayer for Lego games. Also controlling Murphy in Rayman Legends is by far easiest on the Wii U as his stages were clearly designed for the Wii U. Clearly some of the games I have listed (and several I haven't listed) aren't for everyone, but that's my point. We often exclude games because we discredit the characters in them as too childish or whatever other reasons we gamers use instead of giving new and unfamiliar IP a try.

Nico07 commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms That Dual GamePad Su...:

I would certainly love to see dual Gamepads and had been thinking it would happen since Reggie announced that it would happen (I think back in 2012). I even bought a second Gamepad charger in anticipation. But at this point, the Wii U has a fairly strong library of it's biggest games. Sure Smash is yet to come, but likely will release pre-dual Gamepads. Mario Kart wouldn't support it without a patch. We already have Mario 3D World that would likely not support it and so really what would support it? I think Nintendo should stick to developing the titles they are working on and save the dual Gamepad option for a later patch for many games and or new content post Zelda Wii U.

@joorgeerdz yeah, retailers have used RFID for security for years. It's relatively inexpensive and when one of these tags attached to merchandise or placed inside of a box passes a security check point it will sound an alarm. During the checkout process the employee passes the product over a pad they use to deactivate the RFID tracker.

@RedYoshi999 I thought that all amiibo figures could be used on all amiibo supported games. So when they release and Mario Kart 8 receives it's amiibo support you can race as Link or Samus, or have some other useful interaction with these figures in game (special item, courses, etc).

Nico07 commented on Review: LEGO The Hobbit (Wii U):

@Gerbwmu Lego City Undercover got me hooked as well. I played it with kids in the Wii U drought of early 2013. We then grabbed Lego Batman 2 and Lego Marvel. Both of these games had excellent two player separate experiences. Even the latest Lego Movie game is fun. I held off on Lego Hobbit for content as my kids are still young for these movies. But Lego Batman 3 should be great on Wii U. Lego Marvel 2 is almost certain and despite not selling well (because of a low Wii U system owner base) I would buy a Lego City 2 game day one.

Nico07 commented on Talking Point: The GameCube Controller Adapter...:

I will be picking up one of these adapters for sure. Nintendo was smart to mention it now to give future veteran Smash players the knowledge that the new game will support their favorite legacy controller. Aside from that I would love to see some new controllers come out but won't get my hopes up as these will probably be Invitation items only, for now. I wouldn't be surprised if the Gamecube controller is only treated as a classic controller for gameplay in most games with "Start" being the Home button. I would also speculate that we will hear of a few Gamecube games for eShop at E3 or perhaps support for Gamecube discs in the emulated Wii mode (not sure about any technical limitations here other than the heretoknow missing Gamecube ports).

Nico07 commented on Nintendo Download: 29th May (North America):

@morphballer Every single one of us will be picking up Mario Kart 8 on disc I am sure.

Anyone else think it's strange that Super Mario Kart (SNES) didn't appear on the North American Wii U eShop today? Granted we are all excited for MK8, but the original SNES classic is already available in Europe. The Wii U Virtual Console seems to be on life support.

Nico07 commented on Poll: A Tale of Two Blockbusters as Mario Kart...:

I preordered both as I have a Best Buy GCU account making them $38 each after bonuses. But honestly I would have paid $60 or more for MK8 and will buy any DLC should it release. Mario Kart is the stronger title in my opinion.

@ClassicJetterz Nice. I missed out on both last year's E3 sampling and the recent one last week too (thank you work). With virtually every aspect having been in the media for the past month I've had a hard time not watching every single course and match. I am so excited for next Friday, this is the reason I bought a Wii U at launch.

@Smooching It was already revealed NFC characters would come to market before the end of 2014 and be used on various games. Smash is the only Wii U game being published by Nintendo coming out end of year that has been announced. I speculated it would happen.

@KodyDawg Same here. Hopefully they are semi affordable ($5-$10). It will be interesting to see how they are used in this and other games. Also if there will be variations on characters, ie Mario and Metal Mario. My guess is we will hear more about them at E3.

Nico07 commented on Video: Behold The Incredible Destructive Power...:

@SMEXIZELDAMAN With friends I play battle mode more than anything else. The battle modes have declined in recent years being simply small stages with very little interesting about them (ie roulette wheel in MKW). For me Block Fort on the N64 (and DS) was my favorite offering a "king of the hill" type layout. You could stay on the bottom level but would have to contend with bouncing green shells. The middle tier was nice, but you were vulnerable to lined up shots from above. And the top was nice, but the platforms were the smallest and so you were still vulnerable. The unique arena stages bring a different, unique type of gameplay not seen in the traditional racing modes of Mario Kart.

I'm open to the new battle mode, and think that the reverse paths of racers will be a good thing and equally unique, especially with the mayhem of up to 12 (I'm assuming 12) racers on each map. That said, I would not be against Nintendo later releasing DLC arena maps as add-on content should the courses be better than the arena maps of the later games in the franchise. I am very excited for this game and despite the change think it should receive a solid 10/10 from many reviewers.

Battle mode has always been a big part of Mario Kart for me. They have included areas since the very first game and the Nintendo 64 arenas were arguably the best. My favorite is Block Fort. I will be buying this game but like others have said DLC in this area would be more than welcome.

Nico07 commented on Moon Chronicles Lands on the 3DS eShop in Nort...:

I will probably buy the first episode to try it out. It was ok on the DS, and with this more or less being the first FPS game out on the 3DS, aside from the RE games (I'm not counting the on rail shooter eShop games) I want to try it out.

I would be happy with a RARE re-release of the original Goldeneye 64 in 3D with online play, but that is never going to happen.

Nico07 commented on Satoru Iwata Announces 'Nintendo Figurine Plat...:

@Philip_J_Reed I disagree. When Infinity came in to being Activision recognized they were unique and different. Our family started with Infinity collecting all 30 or so characters. Since then we have branched out and collected over 80 Skylanders and all three games. At first I didn't get Skylanders because I didn't understand it. Its because of Infinity that we eventually bought Skylanders. Know this will be one more Toys to Life series we will pickup. I forgot to mention we also have about 12 Pokemon Rumble figures too. So yes, we will be broke.

@AJSjedi It would be nice my wife got into these games but I end up playing them with my kids. We started with Infinity and then moved on to Skylanders. We have all Infinity characters and most power discs. We also have about 70 Skylanders now and are looking forward to both of the new games coming out.

Super excited about this. The addition of baby Rosalina will be gladly accepted at our house. Finally an item to take out the blue shell. Hopefully the blue shell rate drops as in Mario Kart Wii it isn't uncommon to see four in one race.

@SahashraLA Sorry your work conditions are deplorable, but there are quite a few gamers that appreciate knowing more about the Skylanders games and series. It does make me wonder why you bothered writing up your message at all if you don't care for Skylanders.

Nico07 commented on Video: Behold The Difference Between Skylander...:

@DarkEdi There are still quite a few Wii owners out there and so I see possibly another Skylanders, Infinity, or Just Dance game releases but outside of those there really shouldn't be anything. It would be interesting if Nintendo chose to release another Mario or big first party title on the system as there are so many Wii owners out there.

Nico07 commented on Video: Behold The Difference Between Skylander...:

@Damo I agree, like Swap Force I don't see Activision putting forward any type of significant effort to create the Wii U version and it will be like the 360/PS3 versions. It will most likely support Gamepad stats and possibly run at 720p upconverted to 1080p.

@dethmart Mine too, we have told her the current pink controller is the Princess one and the blue is Toad. Well I guess this is another controller I will be buying. Nintendo could probably get more money out of me with more color options like Daisy, Toad, Rosalina, Mango or others.

@GooRoo you never know, they will most likely offer a discount on the digital Wii U version if you have a digital copy of the 3DS version.
Still I'm disappointed, but at the same time there are no big PS4 games on the near horizon. Its not like I wont buy both versions becauae of the delay. I just have to wait longer to enjoy them. Still looking forward to MK8 and news of Zelda at E3. Hopefully Nintendo has more tricks up their sleeve then.

Nico07 commented on Review: Super Dodge Ball (Wii U eShop / NES):

I loved this game as a kid and would spend hours playing it at my cousins house. By the same token I played Super Mario Bros, Off Road Racing, The Legend of Zelda, The Jackal, Rescue Rangers, and Ducktales all bring back great memories.

@element187 I understand that, anything is better than 320x240 resolution. Still I wouldn't be willing to pay over $100 and would hope for $60 or lower. I like to play Nintendo games on Nintendo consoles over emulators. And unfortunately many of my N64 games are not on the eShop.
