@Savino wow... I actually stopped and read that article. Seriously? WTF did that have to do with this article?! Because a bunch of tree huggers are whining about slavery, this persons personal experience (unlike your story, which has absolutely NOTHING to do with personal experience, Much less video games) is invalid? C'mon, there are PLENTY of tree hugging/Political sites with forums for angry or negative posts... This site is for lively conversation of games (and maybe a movie or TV show every once in a while) ;)

Platypus101 commented on Video: Donkey Kong Country Returns...To Wii U:

@abbyhitter this is sort of what I wanted... Except I was hoping that our VC titles would start from the Wii U screen, as opposed to how it used to be. Alas they needed cash, so came up with the "we know you hate Wii Mode on your Wii U, so... For just a nominal fee of 10$, you can get what we sort of promised early on!" This could have been dealt with via system updates. Since it is what I wanted, I'll stop being vocal now :|

@TobiasAmaranth um... It's a forum. That's how these things work. You post something, unknown individuals post their response. Forum. See? If you don't want people "up in yo biz'" then do not post on a forum (especially when dealing with personal space, as you can see, people are "touchy" concerning said subject) remember, some folk (you know, big corporations, colleges, etc.) see flirting as sexual harassment, and that's just talk... Word to the wise.

Eh... The reason people aren't as excited is easy... No serious let down. "Wait my favorite Nintenod character is coming soon... Oh, it's out of stock forever, ok..." See? No interest. Not shocking. Congrats to all the collectors that were able to beat out the scum, I mean scalpers. :)

@TobiasAmaranth seriously?! Keep your hands to yourself! Lemme ask you this, how many strange guys have you offered a backrub to? I understand the human need for touching, but your comment weirded me out! Ask your significant other if it would be fine if some stranger just up and gave them a backrub. Ask your parents ('specially your dad, I wanna know what he thinks!)... Yeah, the problem is not those around you. Dudes don't give random hugs to strangers either, just a heads up (just in case you didn't understand that, some homies in my town will straight up kick your butt should you even try) LOL!

@AugustusOxy this sounds made up... Seriously. And I don't find it funny. Not in the least. If you were truly "stalked" as you claim, then your belief would be that he got his "just desserts"... I am 100% sure you cost your stalker his job... How is that not similar to what happened to this guy? This guy should count his lucky stars (NOT a Mario reference, no pun intended) HE is not sitting next to your stalker! (If said stalker is even real) ;) oh, I'm not going to reply to any of your posts any longer, simply because my plush wolf stated that you just might be crazy... The rest of you, chime in! :D

@AugustusOxy do you have a daughter? Perhaps not (age, choice, don't matter which), which is fine. But if some old pervert was hitting on your (daughter), I GUARANTEE that dude would get his butt whooped! My brother (he has a daughter) read this and said so himself, along with the other guys in the office... So, I think your mentality here may be a bit ... Inappropriate, shall we say? Trust me, if some guy was hitting on your girl, you'd have something to say about it ;).

@thesilverbrick no... You don't HAVE TO erase... Nintendo has seen it in their good graces to offer you a SECOND Amiibo of the same name (different style) for the same price as the SSB Amiibo! :D jerks... All they need is a patch that allows you to "bank" your information (like Pokemon) over the cloud (so you could choose one while at a friends house), is that so hard? They did it for Pokemon...

@Chaos_Eevee Sorry, but your statement is that you would rather see Nintendo shut it doors, rather than letting other (perhaps not as "experienced" as yourself) people enjoy this iteration of the 3DS? Wow. That is very selfish attitude. Should they also make a lane hjust for you on the freeway? I know I would want one (as would everyone else on this site) but doesn't mean I tell people not to drive on the freeway, just cause we didn't get what we wanted. Selfish does not begin to sum up your sentiment. :(

Platypus101 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

@Quorthon yup! Everything you said! :D That's honestly what I was expecting in software updates... Never got it, but boy is my console STABLE.... :( I'm picking up SMG2, jut for kicks. This may be useful for picking up some titles I never had a chance at (or simply was too cheap to pick up at the time)... We will see :)

Platypus101 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

@Quorthon you clearly misunderstood what I meant. I am on your side, but all my corporate buddies will ask, "where's my ROI?" In this idea. And, why take time to do something that will net you very little (the amount of man hours it would take to convert these titles would be a huge undertaking. I know everyone out there believes that "it's just a simple conversion"... Sure, as long as my corporate buddies and their supervisors are not involved :(

@FritzFrapp be fair... In all honesty, the Wii was a glaring success! people did not BUY a Wii U, thought it sucked, then bought themselves either a XB1/PS4... If people had, then the launch sales numbers would not have been so low. It's been two years, and everyone seems to think that they got the short end of he stick... Sorry, but in my opinion, Wii U console owners got it good. At least we're not stuck playing the same 5 old tired games they got on the other consoles.

@shigulicious whoa! Don't stop there! Tell him everything... Cats out of the bag now! :) I'm sure she's sweet NOW... Wait till year 6 rolls around "why would you leave the juice out OVERNIGHT?!" Huh? Sorry, derailed for a moment. Flashbacks... Like PTSD for the married man. Boy, I'll never make that mistake again. (so many other mistakes yet to be made) in any case, I hope it works out for them ;)

@rjejr Stop! I'm peeing my pants.... You had me at "Should..." ROFLMAO! No seriously. This was just as bad as when they did NFC toys for Pokemon Rumble... Fail. Not sure if I'll jump in on this now... I WAS a big proponent (go ahead, check my posts), but now, I just don't wanna get ripped off for what are essentially collectibles (seeing as they have no idea of going big with this, if they did, more than a couple dozen scalpers and serious collectors wouldn't be the only ones with a set). we all know Nintendo, once gone, gone forever. :( I'm waiting for my holiday survey to show...

Platypus101 commented on Nintendo Sending Out amiibo Surveys to Select ...:

So, unlike every other survey that lets you type in what you think, this one is only multiple choice? Would not have mattered what they asked. I simply would have stated over and over again, stock issues suck fierce! Four words, easy to read and see.

@Usagi-san LOl! A document YOU have personally never seen, is what you meant. simply because you have not heard or seen something, doesn't necessarily make it questionable. How many specialized degrees do you carry? Enough to say you know everything? This was posted under "Weirdness" not news... If it turns out that it is not real, would it not seem "weird" for someone to make this up, regardless? If your concern is for the Mario-verse canon, I'm sure most of this has been dumped since Its inception in what seems to be 1992.

Platypus101 commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

@Grumblevolcano like I said before... I don't dislike backwards compatibility, in fact that was a selling point when purchasing my Wii U 18 months ago, but that a new console should be limited by its need to be backwards compatible is just not right. Sony and MS both left Backwards compatibility behind, and I don't see the news articles dooming and glooming them... Maybe it's time we wholeheartedly support moving forward in its entirty, rather than hold ourselves back with the past. I too would like to Nintendo match the other guys, but I don't think it will be possible by serving the future and the past at the same time. :( btw, I'm all for keeping my old consoles, sure they eat up space, but that's why I went all digital this gen :D

@MysticX oh yeah... I agree. I was only replying to the comment about controllers not selling games... I was playing devils advocate ;) I know "if there is an exception to the rule, then the rule stands" and the rule here is, gamers like basic controllers (options are nice, but not necessary)

@Darknyht good luck on your Wii checklist (I also waited a bit too long for quite a few of those titles, and boy were they hard to come by... Cheap)! :D as for your gaming ha it's, I believe you maybe in the minority, picking up a next gen console for its backwards compatibility, and playing mostly those games ;) I figured most folk would have moved onto the WiiU from the Wii (hence why I think sales are rubbish, few upgraded, very few.) as for the Wii menu on the Wii U, I agree, WTF mate? Could there be no better way? Non gaming apps would also have been better than TVii (I do not use, since it service provider based, and I watch all stuff streaming). BTW I too am a budget gamer, having only paid 53% overall on all titles currently on my U (I own quite a few Nintendo titles thanks to the SSB sale urging September/October!) we did just get Cruchyroll... :D but like my Apple TV, I would like to see some additional apps.
