Game was not that interesting on other consoles... Kinda slow. Not my kinda game. A few friends like it, the restaurant re pretty meh about it. I would fairly rate this a 7/10. I don't see the hype or excitement, but the gameplay feels like it works right!

Platypus101 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

@Punished_Boss_84 the Wii brand was never weakened... It passed with flying colours... By the time PS3 and Xbox360 caught up, we were all moving on to next gen... Except for nintendo. They chose "sort of" next gen. :)what I don't get is that if neither MS nor Sony had any real games in development or ready for launch, why bother releasing a new console? The PS3 rarely (if ever) used its maximum capabilities, and the X360 had yet to reach its full marketing potential (Ifeel they had the best chance to overtake the Wii)

Platypus101 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

really? Like when Reggie speaks, this should all be shut out. Neither party will ever claim success of the other. Even while Wii was blowing away the competition last gen, Sony (in the same boat with MS) claimed that few people even played the Wii... I guess it's all sour grapes for a while, at least until the holiday season is over. I'm sure Sony is making tons of cash... Oh wait, they're not. So I guess this is all just a big load of carp!

Platypus101 commented on Keep All Your Treasured amiibo Figures Safe Wi...:

Amiibo don't really make sense from a travel point of view... Some people here are so confused, they have no idea why you would want to transport "toys" from point a to point b... If only the figures could be easily removed from the base... This way there is no concern of damaging your fig... Also, it would fit in your pocket. Currently the idea of dragging around (potentially rare/limited edition) figures sounds, strange.

Platypus101 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

@AtlanteanMan my assumption is that they are going to release Gamecube games sooner (rather than later) on the Virtual Console... In which case I can see these having importance. Otherwise... Not a sell for me. I do see where the highly competitive crowd would use this. It's simply another controller option (albeit, limited).

@CapuJohn dude! They were short back in the day when a 35" TV was considered large... And if I'm not mistaken, the health and safety manual read that sitting 3 feet away from a (no joke) 13" screen was the premium viewing distance. That would translate to like 12 feet away from modern "Big Screens"!

Platypus101 commented on GameStop to Host Preview Super Smash Bros. for...:

Fortunately I called before heading out (Los Angeles traffic will do that to you...), I had a good time! (I am an old stick in the mud, if someone cuts me off or I have no cell reception, my day is ruined) :P the staff at GameStop was considerate and friendly (not too uncommon in my experience, as I have 3 within a 5 mile area) and the free swag they gave out was pretty nifty! Smash stickers and buttons, along with Mario Kart 8 Flags (not cheap either!) lanyards and key fobs! I played little Mac and found him to play regular - nothing overpowered or unbalanced that I could see (I lost second, my wife first), and both my wife and I played little Mac... Fun! :D

I see your point... :) but the deal here is to get people to buy the Amiibo. No one says "I can't use X character in Skylanders/Infinity until I but it?! That sucks!" In fact, it works the other way... Kids continually nag their parents till they get the next toy to unlock X content... And not having a feature because you didn't pay for it? Well, that just makes plain sense. ;)

@BensonUii Heck! I don't even want a new game per se... But how about (DLC) Nintendoland that incorporates (not dresses, not skins) full on Amiibos? Or Wii U Party? THAT would give those games a bit more replayability, AND the much needed exposure (Ala WiiSports last gen) for the Wii U. Just an after thought... Besides, it's always easier to come up with solutions after someone else has done all the work. ;)

The Wii Zapper is not much fun to hold for extended periods of time. The Zapper is not only heavy (you have BOTH the Wiimote and Nunchuck in the unit) but also unwieldy (unless you don't mind holding the zapper "Submachine gun style" with both hands) as it is heavier towards the front by a bit... That's just the response I got from family... Although the Zapper was nice, it was not as comfortable over extended periods of gameplay as the Nyko Perfectshot. ;)

Platypus101 commented on Shovel Knight Now Available In Europe On The W...:

@Dave24 so... If you were willing to buy it "over and over again" wouldn't that equate to 123% of the retail price? Or would that be 199%? Either way, you were willing to spend nearly 200% for the same game, but now that it's out you claim that it took to long to, therefore the game is not worth it, unless you wait a few more months for the PS4 version? Sir, you have no dog in this hunt! Your being impatient is not the fault of the Dev... There were no promises made. Promises are for children that need reassurance. Contracts are what matter in business. May I see your contract sir? (Kickstarter is not a contractual obligation either, read up on it)

@BensonUii that resident evil gun (either the hand cannon or transformer model) were awful! The Wii Zapper and the Nyko Perfect shot is where it's at. The Eagle industries RE guns have a LONG pull on the trigger, not very handy when you need to make shots in quick succession... :( I was sold on how cool they looked. Bonus, the little Umbrella Corporation joystick covers look awesome and do not effect your gaming in the least...

@Webby-sama I have to take a break from the whiners every few weeks..l I feel you bro.what is really strange is that people complain about something as if it had been taken away from them... Before the Internet and oversaturation via social networking, people tended to be much much more patient about game releases. In fact, most gamers waited for Christmas (or birthday)... :)

@DESS-M-8 nice! Thank you for clearly stating what needed to be said... Tired of the moaners and groaners talking about "all Sony and Microsoft games are free, so should Nintendo's!" I bet if their parents worked for these companies, they would be less inclined to whine and moan about how expensive games are. :)

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

@ToxieDogg well... Yes and no? (Sorry, tough answer) let's look at the sales currently on the Wii U, slim pickins ' right? Now I don't know much about the other two next gen systems, but look at Steam. There always seems to be sales (of course not on new releases, that would be silly) that many people I know enjoy. What I am seeing is a future where all games are "cloud-ed" (ugh, bad word) with limited edition physical runs and Steam-like deals on digital content. If they decide that limiting physical is not the way to go, then should digital pick up, I expect even less in terms of deals from digital. I hope that clarifies my view? :)

@rylo151 that's heartbreaking... Same here, (U.S.) Smash commercials? Once in a great while.... McDonalds ad concerning Mario Kart 8 toys in their happy meals? Every other commercial break! 3rd party game commercial featuring the Wii U? Never. Not once in fact. Unless you count the Wii U icon at the bottom of the screen (for less than two seconds)...

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Download: 6th November (Europe):

@Starwolf_UK LOL! That's what happens when everybody declares "We only want physical!" Supply and demand baby! Demand increased for physical, so they raised the prices accordingly ;) I'm sure this trend will continue until gamers come to accept digital... (This doesn't just apply to Nintendo)

@dudujencarelli Pretendo:The Musical! That's what is was called... Had too look through my old tickets from this year :P it doesn't seem to have become an actual production... But if you should ever get a chance to see it, it's a treat, plus why not support the arts and show your love of video games at the same time?! :)

@dudujencarelli sorry... I didn't think we had time for detailed history lesson.. :P you are aware we are both saying the same thing,right? I just shortened the ever living carp out of a very detailed story... (Currently there is at least one of each in the works: book, movie -indiegogo, and theatrical stage production - also Kickstarter) ;) read/saw reading of the play, looking forward to the actual book! Seeing how the tables haves turned once again in the console wars! Thank you for clarifying data and fact! :D

@FragRed you are aware that Nintendo essentially gave Sony the Playstation right? nintendonand Sony designed the Playstation together, then Nintendo got cold feet on the new technology (Cd-ROM), bailed on Sony, who then took their work and made the ultra popular Playstation. ;) Sony did not enter the market to destroy Nintendo, they were there to help...

Not sure if we will ever see MS or Sony mascots on walls outside the U.S. Just can't imagine Kratos slashing enemies with the quote "Start your day off right, crush your enemies!" Or Halo Chief saying "Aim High"

@Peach64 seriously?! You can ask to do that?! Holy cow! Regardless, I agree, a phone call makes not an account based system... TBH in my only experience wih Nintendo's service, it was impeccable. I guess that's why I have trusted Nintendo this Gen with digital only... Good to know about the "can restore via phone call/service center" ;) thanks!

Back in the day, rechargable were rubbish, in fact many products claimed that for best operation, do not use rechargable batteries... Depending on when it was released ( I read an article on this site that claimed...) nintendo had already begun working on (or was soon to release) the Gameboy Color. Now why the GBC had no backlit screen is the real question?

Platypus101 commented on Activision Retail Titles Are Coming To The Wii...:

@Action51 with the Digital Download Promotion, I decided (when I purchased my Wii U) to go with the full 2TB external HDD, and I will tell you, there is plenty of space (even with all major releases and about a couple dozen indie/retro games)! :D I stand behind the (Nintendo Recommended) Buffalo DriveStation Axis USB 3.0 2GB HDD... So far so good! (Knock on wood) download may not be for everyone, but it works for me! (And yes, I too would like to see an account based system for nintendo...)
