Shovel Knight. I'm desperate for a portrayal of him in 3D.

Think about it: what if you could change the types of Knights on the character select menu, just like Bowser Jr.? If not, what about having a transformation move similar to Shulk's Monando Arts?



ningeek185 commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

Even though the Wii was my first gaming console, I'm still considered a retro gamer having the original NES system. Because of that I'm not going to easily adapt to virtual reality. With that said, I really hope Nintendo doesn't go that far with their technology.

However, I am looking forward to a fresh console with (finally) interaction between home and handheld consoles. While it's possible that Sony and Microsoft will jump into virtual reality soon, Nintendo should stick with their traditional mechanics. If Nintendo wants to look toward virtual reality for "new experiences", they should reconsider their options. Companies have already developed virtual reality headsets, so Nintendo wouldn't really be making anything new and previously found nowhere else.

I understand why many of you are concerned about Nintendo's move to mobile, but I wouldn't be. Several people at my school talk about having Nintendo games on their smartphones. Once Nintendo lands a fantastic Mario game on The App Store/Google Play, they have officially struck gold.



ningeek185 commented on Talking Point: It's Time for a Nintendo Direct...:

Nintendo still needs to answer some of my questions, and hopefully those include some release dates:

  • Super Smash Bros. Mewtwo DLC release date
  • More information on amiibo stock
  • Release date for amiibo NFC cards
  • Release dates for Yoshi's Wolly World, Splatoon, and Mario Maker
  • At least general release dates for Star Fox and Zelda (Q3, Q4, etc.)
  • An official name for the upcoming Zelda title...I can hardly wait to hear the name!
  • Mario Kart DLC (Animal Crossing) release
  • GameCube and N64 Virtual Console release


ningeek185 commented on Rumour: A Planned 2.5D Metroid Title For 3DS G...:

Look, I've never really been into Metroid because I haven't played any of the games; however, I couldn't help my self but to give Metroid Prime Trilogy a shot after it was re-released on the Wii U eShop. After the first few minutes of playing, I realized that Nintendo needs to get their act together and develop a hardcore fanbase for the Wii U. With such a great franchise, why not use it?

There are people like me who haven't played Metroid: Other M, but who want another Metroid game. Doesn't everyone want an HD Metroid game for the Wii U? C'mon Nintendo, Samus hasn't been finding enough bounty lately.

Mobile gaming is awful compared to Nintendo's line is handhelds. Heck, the Game Boy is more enjoyable than smartphone games. The only two games I play on my iPod are Clash of Clans and Madden Mobile. Other than that, it's a waste of my time.

I really hope Nintendo makes another handheld among the DS line, because those systems have impacted my childhood greatly.

I prefer to think of this game as the first in it's series. Of course Xenoblade Chronicles came first, but it was so rare and expensive that the general public hardly ever got their hands on it. Hopefully Nintendo aces it with Xenoblade Chronicles X this time around. I can't wait to feel the power!

Whoa, whoa, whoa. Do you see how many people are anticipating the smaller screen model? It's the EXACT opposite of smartphones nowadays. It's refreshing to see that there's still business for smaller screens. Of course Nintendo doesn't know that.

Still, if you're complaining about not having the standard model in the U.S, just be quiet about it and go rage somewhere else. I'm sure you can bear with whatever 3DS model you already own.



ningeek185 commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS Could Be a...:

After some long periods of thought, I've decided to pass on the New Nintendo 3DS XL. I'm not willing to fork over $200 for something I'd seldom use. Honeslty, I've had my time with the 3DS. Right now I'm more interested in my Wii U, and I'm planning on getting the Xbox One soon. I'm not a Nintendo hater, I just want to play Halo with my friends.



ningeek185 commented on Poll: Which New Nintendo 3DS Will You be Buying?:

I currently own only one 3DS model, the cosmo black original Nintendo 3DS. For a while I was considering the XL, but I wasn't willing to fork over $200 for a bigger screen.

Fortunately, Nintendo has stepped up their game with their new portable handhelds. With more power, a bigger screen, face-recognition 3D and more, the New Nintendo 3DS XL is the more sensible option for me. However, will I ever use it much? Will my Wii U automatically single out my 3DS? And what exclusive titles are coming for the new hardware? I can't make up my mind.

Oh, and I'd probably get the Majora's Mask edition.



ningeek185 commented on Video: Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offe...:

Nothing new here, except having the manual and load screen is an upgrade. Personally, I'm not going to transfer my Wii data to my Wii U because the games look better in standard-definition. Just my opinion.

However, it's about time we can download digital games, and a bit of a relief since you couldn't do that with retail games on the Wii. It's nice to see rare titles here like Metroid Prime Trilogy for such a low price.



ningeek185 commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

Not sure if I will leap at the new hardware options for the 3DS. I currently own the original cosmo black model, and I haven't been stocking up on 3DS games lately due to poor titles. Admit it: 2014 was an awful year for 3DS software. Unless Nintendo decides to keep their software coming, I think I'm going to pass.



ningeek185 commented on Video: Remind Yourself Of Nintendo Life's Top ...:

Not surprised that Mario Kart 8 won the Overall Best Game of the Year award, however I was shocked to see Kirby: Triple Deluxe win second place for the 3DS. From what I've heard of it, it's mediocre. For me the only good game released for the 3DS this year was Smash.



ningeek185 commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

I'm not sure if Nintendo could revive the impact of the Wii, bringing innovation that turns into profits. Here's three things Nintendo might want to consider for the future...

1. New Portable Handheld
Nintendo has had plenty of success with the 3DS models, and they can keep the profit coming by making a new system.

2. Traditional Nintendo Console
Of course Nintendo could design a new console, and underpowered, low-cost gaming system with innovative controls.

3. Next-Gen Console
A risky decision, but Nintendo could make a faster, more powerful console that could compete with the Xbox and Playstation's processing power. A traditional controller, something more like the Wii U Pro Controller. If Nintendo kept their first-party games coming and freeing up more space for third-party developers, Nintendo could get back into the game for real.



ningeek185 commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

Absolutely no contest here, Zelda Wii U is going to be the most anticipated Nintendo game of the year. However, Xenoblade Chronicles X seems like a worthy choice for any Nintendo gamer. Definitely have to check that one out when more details are released.



ningeek185 commented on Talking Point: Five New Year's Resolutions for...:

Keep the games coming and Nintendo should not only get good sales, but also keep their customer satisfaction.

One thing I strongly believe that steers consumers away from the Wii U is the image. Stated in this article, Nintendo needs to promote online more. People just don't understand the Wii U, and as a result of that the sales are limited.

I happen to marvel at my Wii U, and I'm sure most of the owners of Nintendo's console feel the same way. Work on that image, Nintendo, and you should do well entering 2015.



ningeek185 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

So many great games to choose from...I gotta go with Mario Kart 8. Best soundtrack, beautifully designed courses, and it's HD.

However, I wouldn't be surprised if Mario Kart 7 stole the show (unfortunately that would've had to happen a while ago). I've blown dozens of hours into that game, and overall it's just fun to play.

Thanks for these polls, Nintendolife. It's great to hear eveyone's opinions and stories in the comments.
