renaryuugufan92 commented on Nintendo Download: 24th December (North America):

Well this satisfies my ocd of not having Galaxy 1 next to Galaxy 2 on the main menu. I like having games digitally so I'm not bothered by Galaxy being offered digitally. What does bother me is the fact that NOA is so darn slow with VC releases. Super Mario Galaxy should have been offered back in May alongside its japanese eshop release, and Xenoblade Chronicles should have been available on the eshop by now. Instead what NOA does is give us games without considering the feedback from fans. Take for example what Microsoft has done with emulated 360 compatability via Xbox One, they opened up a voting system where fans are requesting the games they wanted and as a Xbone owner I can expect hundreds of 360 games by the time 2016 is out and a good number of them will be titles I personally voted for. With Nintendo I'm left wondering if we will get

Mother 3
Xenoblade Chronicles
the essential Wii titles on eshop
Metroid Zero Mission
Mario RPG
alongside a host of other games we have been wanting since the days of the Wii.

All of this begs to question how Nintendo will do things with the NX regarding region lock vs region free and if NOA continues to ignore fan requests then I am considering importing the NX from NOE and dealing with the price conversions if it means getting the selection of games NOA fails to deliver on.

This week NOA should have offered Mario RPG, and 64 DS just like Europe, and yes I know NOE didn't offer Galaxy as a download this week so both can be at fault its just ridiculous since once a game hits NOE its pretty much localized to the point of hitting NOA's servers and NOA is like Untitled lol sorry for the rant I hope everyone on NL has a happy holiday!



renaryuugufan92 commented on An ESRB Rating of Super Mario Galaxy for Wii U...:

If one thing has been surprisingly slower than the Wii U's virtual console, it has been the eshop re-releases of Wii titles.

Xenoblade Chronicles is one game I desperately want on the eshop because I will not buy a New 3DS for one game especially if its a de-master, or shelving out alot of money for a new copy of the old disc regardless if X has become my favorite Wii U title.

And a few other titles I haven't been able to get yet like The Last Story, Fire Emblem, and so on.



renaryuugufan92 commented on NX Won't Be The Next Version Of Wii Or Wii U, ...:

"We will continue to support the Wii U going into the lifecycle of the NX" I've heard that one before.

GameCube - Nintendo stoped supporting it right after the Wii released
Wii - Support died in 2011 with the exception being Xenoblade, Pandora's Tower, The Last Story and Ubisoft's just dance games and the skylander games.
Wii U - Outside of SMTxFE and Zelda U what else is slated for summer 2016 and beyond, I want proof not words, words that were echoed in past generations and weren't directly validated.

I just released that Nintendo does have decent pacing, sure we complained and moaned that N64 games took to long but, if you think about it

A good deal of 2013 was delivering NES and SNES
2014 was adding to those and adding GBA
now we get N64 and DS w/ Wii games digitally distributed
next year maybe we'll GCN games.. maybe not.

I do hope though that since a new online infrastruture is coming with the DeNA partnership that will encompass all platforms that.. everything on Wii U will be emulatable on NX/the next console >.> if not i hope they give us a good selection between now and 2017/18. I can hope right.



renaryuugufan92 commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

@sinalefa Comparing Wii U to the other platforms in terms of sales performance and marketing is... how do i say, a very bad comparison, and a major difference is they can live off third party releases, the, Wii U. cannot.

Welt, on one hand this is really good, means we will get a highly polished Zelda game next year. On another its bad as it introduces a enormous gaming drought into the Wii U's 2015 schedule unless E3 presents some surprises

Thennn I remember what happened a decade ago, when Twilight Princess on the GameCube was delayed, anyone else remember?, what console did the vast majority of us buy it on? Ahem the Wii! The back of my mind has a hunch and it says yes we are going to get a polished Zelda game....but will it still release on the Wii U and not the NX as a launch title that is the question

Remember how the DS came out as a third pillar just 3 years into the GBA's life, yea its not impossible for Nintendo to release new hardware 4 years in (November 2016) and actually it might be in their best interests to do so, Wii U is set to slop even more this year... sad too because I enjoy gaming on the thing, and before the too soon comments come in, game generations typically last 4-5 years so its about time anyway, wii u will be 4 years old on Nov 18th 2016, NX will be shown off 2016, Zelda delayed till 2016, certain keywords were used in Aounuma's video that set off my personal alarm bells so of course I'd hunch up a Twilight Princess situation all over again.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

unless its a hybrid of handheld and console

here we go again, under-powered hardware for the sake of gimmicky controls.....
fool me once shame on you wii
motion controls were neat however the system did struggle with game releases and quality content, also it did hurt Nintendo's image by comming off to core gamers as the "casual" system

fool me twice shame on me wii u
good system,good games, but poor marketing mixed with underpowered hardware, 2005 era online infrastructer, region-locking, and a controller thats under-utilized and a install base that seems to be stalling before even reaching 10 mil in sales as of march.

what happens if the gaming community is fooled a third time with NX.
How about surprising us with actually getting up-to-date with your infrastructor and hardware choices. that would be surprising. Having been gaming on Nintendo since the age of 3 1996 I must say I've never felt the urge to be so critical towards anyone company that I adore, as much as Nintendo because these past few generations they find something that puts them a few steps forward, and then.... do stuff and implement hardware/software choices that puts them several steps backwards.

By all means surprise us Iwata.. but since the same was promised of the Wii U.. I'm highly skeptical. Optimistic sure,at least.... i'd like to be, but overall I'm skeptical.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

@Wolfgabe @Chisel @Flopsy86 @Blast I have to agree with blast this entry would interest me alot more if it had online.

Now for those who are saying that online simply would not work with a game like this or because matchs would be too long, ha what? seriously?! that's your reasoning... anyway! This is 2015 we should have online with every Nintendo release these days regardless of how they are built. I've seen numerous party games be online and last much longer than the average mario party game, and other game series that are non-nintendo can easily be multi-hour affairs online, if a 30 minute party match is too much then idk what to say here because really how long do we play mario kart online when it reallllllly comes down to it, for me when i'm in the mood. Several. HOURSSSS!

Its just frustrating that the fanbase doesn't want online with the games where online would make sense.
Super Mario 3D World
Mario Party 10
Hyrule Warriors
just to name a few...

Online gaming adds alot of replayability, lets be honest here how many of you replay a local multiplayer game like Mario 3D World these days? Its a great game, but could have benefited from having the option of online support, just like this game!.

couch gaming with friends is superior
Half of my friends are spread out across the country and only one lives in my hometown, and he would buy a wii u. if its games were online see heres another issue. I know so many people who would buy a wii u if it had more online games... think about that for a second, I have friends who would BUY yes. BUY this console if it had more online games because lets face it couch buddy gaming doesn't sell consoles like it used too, the majority of gamers these days are ONLINE gamers, its a fact, its something Nintendo needs to embrace... Then I look over at the 3DS and, that has a much more robust online catalog than the Wii U, and I'm not talking about third party here! raises arms

Really would it really hurt to have the option to play online in mario party 10 or other Nintendo titles... no it wouldn't and I'm going to make a prediction.

The same people who say it wouldn't work or they won't like online in games like this, everysingle one of you will be embracing it with open arms the second Nintendo releases a Mario Party game with online and you try it



renaryuugufan92 commented on Video: Nintendo Promotes Mario Party 10 in New...:

@DiscoGentleman Its 2015 there is not excuse as to why this game should not be online. The argument is quite ridiculous, it doesn't force you to play online its purely an option, and one that Nintendo should embrace, sure you can keep your local multiplayer even with online but in this day in age where we have to wonder if a Nintendo game will have online is really pathetic.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Feature: Five Remastered Games We'd Love to Pl...:

@IronMan28 They do, but based on last gen the DSi came out a lil over a year before the 3DS was announced at E3 2010, so not all that long and I can personally understand why many would want to wait to see if a new handheld really is coming soon before getting the N3DS, which I wouldn't be surprised at all if one did get announced this year or next. I said announced, not released btw.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

@AugustusOxy your right it did add a bunch of new things mario 64 DS however, since the original DS did not have a circle pad the controls of the game were drastically gimped compared to the N64 original. I mean you just don't get the same feedback from a d-pad or touch screen i'm sorry it was neat but didn't feel anywhere near as good as it did on the N64. Yes I know we can play it with the circle pad on the 3DS however! with mario 64 DS all the circle pad does is map the d-pad to it, its still nowhere near what veterans who played mario 64 to death like myself would want in a remake, control wise that is~ If they did do a 3DS remaster it'd be perfect with updated controls and the added content of the DS version and of course, updated visuals.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:

Honestly I can see Mario 64 3D happening this year or next year where its the 30th anniversary since super mario bros and next year is the 20th since 64.

Since Nintendo seems to have a good engine for remastering N64 games on the 3DS these are the following games I'd love to see on the 3DS/ New 3DS.

-Paper Mario (would love to play my favorite of the series on on the 3DS)
-F-Zero X (with 64DD content and added online support, want to test the value of F-zero miyamoto do it here...and yes the control scheme works sheesh still can't believe thats the excuse used to justify no new F-zero as of yet)
-Sin & Punishment 3D
these are my top 3

Remaining GameCube remasters I'd like to see on Wii U make it your next discussion NL those top 3 are!
-PM: The Thousand Year Door
-Mario Sunshine
-Eternal Darkness

@ToxieDogg - I'd rather see Mario Sunshine on the Wii U, keep the 64 remasters on the 3DS for now and the GCN ones on the Wii U i.m.p.o. However, HOWEVER! if it did happen it'd be a bargain to get me to go from the 3DS XL to New 3DS XL raises arms time will tell.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Video: You NEED To Play Metroid Prime Trilogy:

I remember wanting Metroid Prime really badly as a young teenager, but for some reason I never got it. Then, when the Wii came out I was interested in getting Prime 3 but didn't due to financial reasons at the time, I eventually got to play Echoes during my freshman year of college as my roommate had a copy of it. Prime 2 was fun and all but by the time I played it the GCN set up felt really funky, especially since by that time I was used to the second stick being well, the camera xD. Then in december I finally managed to get ahold of the trilogy for $80 new i never buy disc-based games used and played through the games during christmas break, I have to say that the Wii-mote controls are perfect for fps style games and I hope that the next first person metroid game at least gives us the option between traditional and motion controled, similar to how Pikmin 3 gave us that option. I will admit I do feel alot of buyers remorse now since the eshop version is readily available at a cheap price got it too... but, gives me a reason to play through them a second time! To anyone who may ask no I do not intend to sell my copy of trilogy, down the road I may give it to a family member or a future special someone but till then its safeguarded XD. Anyyyway, I hope that everyone can finally enjoy the Prime games now that their offered at such a low price!

renaryuugufan92 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@JaxonH Since the programs I refer to, the unofficial ones do not add any custom mIOS to the vWii (they just enable it) I will say yes it does, just its not enabled for commercial use, similar to how the late Wii models had GCN support disabled but the mIOS needed to run the games sill exists.

I've been trying to explain on allot of forums where people are complaining that GameCube titles didn't come first that..
1. GCN virtual console emulation would take forever to get running at 100%speed and audio accuracy
2. These Wii digital isos are a great test to see if booting them this way would even work and if extra features like Gamepad or GameCube adaptor support would work
3. vWii can still run gamecube files so, the next logical step would be to offer native files just like they are now, cept they will still take longer than Wii files to fully program even with this method. i.e you need to add the Wii menu screen so we can leave the games xD on Wii you had to reset the console, with the custom programs you still have to reset the Wii U, and you need to add gamepad or gcn adapter support, the latter of which had been done with this unofficial method

So yes it is something to be optimistic about indeed, thats if Nintendo decides to go through with it themselves~!



renaryuugufan92 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@JaxonH Yes, Wii games need to run in a specific environment without emulating them title per title which by the way would make releasing them individually much more bleak than the virtual console! So, thats why the Wii U has vWii in the first place, and these executable isos Nintendo is releasing basicly over-ride the need to physically go there ourselves while also giving Nintendo the chance to add somethings to Wii games they weren't able to before.

I.E - Adding gamepad support to classic controller enabled titles

It should be noted that vWii is also capable of running Gamecube (currently via unofficial means but if it can be done natively that way, Nintendo can do it themselves) games despite the disc drive not being programmed to do so. Thus there is literally no excuse now that Nintendo cannot apply the same methods they have to these Wii isos to GameCube isos so we can play them. The only issue is programming the exit menu into the isos and gamepad time will tell I guess.

But to the point yes, all Wii digital downloads boot directly into Wii mode and run natively, without emulation besides well, the vWii itself being a emulator of Wii/GCN hardware. .



renaryuugufan92 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@JaxonH The no longer running in Wii mode is false, the game is running in Wii mode still just you don't have to actually go there first to boot the iso Nintendo has let you download, and the Wii menu button has been recoded to take you straight back to the Wii U menu, the system physically reboots in and out of Wii mode when executing and leaving these games.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

For those that keep asking

Running Galaxy 2 on the Wii U right now
The game boots into the Wii Mode still, but ONLY to run the game & use save data so unfortunately there is no miiverse support with these downloads, when you return to the wii menu it actually brings you back to the wii u menu and your playtime is recorded through the wii u's daily log and not the vwii's

The game still runs the way it originally did, tho if you got your wii u set to 1080p the game will display like it did in wii mode via the disc, 480p displayed as 1080p with black borders.

Do my wii saves work? YES since the system has to boot into Wii mode in order to run the game you are able to access your save data.

So, overall this is a very convienent way for Nintendo to offer games to us, Prime Trilogy being a PRIME example, for $10 that game is a absolute steal. Hopefully we get good games from this and hopefully its actually supported continually..... unlike another service i know of, i'm looking at you Virtual Console.



renaryuugufan92 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

For me my top 3 are:
1. MK8 - pros: Smooth gameplay, good online, vibrant visuals, pretty much the most fined tuning we've had in a mk game yet.
cons: battle mode is a wreck & online could use a better voice chat system.
2. Mario Kart Double Dash: Back in the day when you had friends over and played this game with several GameCube's via LAN, it was so addiciting and fun.
3. Mario Kart Wii: I played endless hours with friends online, and during my first few years of college a few collegues and I would stay up for hours playing this.

Honourable Mentions:
Mario Kart 64 a.k.a nostalgia heaven (if like me you'r first console was the 64)
Mario Kart DS
& Mario Kart 7



renaryuugufan92 commented on Hands On: Wii U GameCube Controller Adapter:

I still ordered this as the mayflash GCN adaptor i got sucks up Wiimote batteries like theirs no tomorrow~! >.< Hopefully in the future we'll be able to use the GCN adaptor for other games via:
1. Patchs (Like NSMBU got for the Pro Controller, and Pikmin 3 got for touch controls)
2. a big system update, tho its unlikely to work in wii mode so for that I recommend the mayflash adaptor, for now
3. Future games will support it as Nintendo did say, so that goes for future GameCube remakes, which we will be getting to cover the droughts~ XD So the adaptor will be supported more in new games/re-releases, next year~



renaryuugufan92 commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

all the negative response from this may convince them to
a. releases patchs to most wii u games allowing this adaptor to work with them
b. release a firmware update that lets the adapter work with all wii u titles and even wii mode, kinda odd it won't work with wii mode considering almost all wii vc titles supported GCN controller functionally along with certain wii games, well pre-2011 nintendo wii your not getting shelved anytime soon, good job nintendo, good job.
