@Shiryu - Thanks for keeping me informed. It seems fine now, and I stayed up hours past my bedtime playing, and I couldn't tell you the difference between 1.2 and 1.3. Bad night though, B- 30 to C+ 60. At one point I was down to C+24 but won 3 in a row and quit while I was only mostly behind.

Wii U is saved! ;-)

I really hope people aren't going to be back on here complaining about SK not being an exclusive anymore. Wii U had it first, take the win when you can get it.

@Shiryu Devils Third is August? I think I hear Reggie cackling somewhere.

Thanks for the Treehouse news, I'm waiting online now and the line is long. :-(

So is the update live? Just played for an hour. Even got out and back on, still 1.2.0. And there's nothing in the download management section either.

rjejr commented on Nintendo Confirms Splatoon Tower Mode Release ...:

@Grafeaux It has nothing to do with being positive or negative, it has to do w/ calling something "free" when it isnt. I paid for the game, therefore it isn't free. I played both Pokémon Shuffle and Rumble, they we're free. It's very simple really, if I pay it isn't free, if I don't pay it is free.

Prime "free" shipping is another one. It isn't free shipping if I paid $99 for it, it's prepaid shipping. Or if you want to say shipping is included with a Prime membership, that's fine, but it isn't free.

It's a pet peeve.

@Shiryu - Splatoonish is now my new favorite word, but I'm not getting Yoshi until Oct 16, so probably Christmas, so I hate you now. ;-)

Really thought you would be moving the platform to your own base, I was all ready to start calling it tug-of-war mode. Rainmaker being moved to the other base makes more sense as you can run about all willy nilly. This will probably always end in a tie. Moving it to your own base would really put the pressure on the other team to giddy-up, now you just camp and shoot. I'm really less excited now. Still happy, but now it's a 9 instead of 11.

"free"

I paid $60 for a game that is being doled out to me in episodic fashion, I am not calling it "free", more like - we can now play the modes we've already paid for and OWN. If they come out w/ something really new, like amino working in the game, or something else after Aug, but until Aug this isn't free DLC, it's unlocking stuff on a disc.

Might as well go back to playing DKCTR and calling each world I unlock "free DLC". We already paid this, we already own it on disc. It is neither free nor DLC.

Edit: I know the article never says DLC, but it usally comes up in the comments.

Is there a way to rewacth Treehouse? I'll be standing on line for an hour trying to sign up my kid for summer swim lessons at 6.

@BLPs - Forgot about R&C. I'd never buy a PS4 for a remake/remaster/reimagining whatever they are calling it, but when I do get a PS4 it will be one of the first games I play. Also multiplayer Godzilla, DQH and Horizons. Lots of games I'd like to play, not too many I'll spend $400 to play through.

"after one or two days"

But isn't the whole game only 2 or 3 hours?

I'm ok w/ things taking a long time to learn and master, in Xenoblade Chornciles it took me about 50 hours to start making gems and even at 105 hours I'm still mastering the unity attack (whatever its called, I've only maxed it out once) so I'm ok w/ learning things. But when you tell me 1 or 2 DAYS for a game that's only a few hours long, that's a problem.

I'm not too worried about the controls though. Both my kids played Kid Icarus no problem, we all played W101 no problem, we all play Spaltoon w/ motion no problem. But still, having the guy who made the game say "1 or 2 days" instead of something like "10 or 15 minutes" is warning sign.

I wonder if that means demo or no demo? It was nice to spend time playing the W101 demo before we got the game. Made it much easier to jump into. If it's going to take 1 or 2 days hopefully they'll put out a demo level w/ no restrictions. Target has the single player only Spaltoon demo, it could happen.

@BLPs - "And why would Reggie have say in the date of an optional event in a video game? Doesn't he have other things to be doing? Where is the logic in that?"

I think choosing the US date IS Reggie's job. Well besides being a mouth piece. He's the President and Chief Operating Officer of NoA. If he isn't going to pick to the splatfest date, then who is? Pres and COO, he has to be doing some decision making, doesn't he? He certainly isn't spending any time at all playing SSB.

@BLPs - Well it is a crappy world unfortunately, sorry about your weekend. I'll get a PS4 at some point, I need to play Uncharted 4 and hopefully FF15 doesn't suck like FF13 and it's sequels (which I never played b/c F13 sucked so bad). But right now at least FF15 looks really good.

Honestly I feel gaming as whole is getting stale as a hobby for me - 18 straight years, who knows how many hours, plus all those hours as a teen before that - so I'm looking into Lego Mindstorm. You mess around w/ any robotics stuff and have any suggestions? I had robosapien about 5 years ago, I want something a little more programmable now. There's raspberry pi and a bunch of kids robots I looked into after Nindie Humble bundle having Code.org as their charity. We haven't even redeemed the codes yet for the games as we've been doing other stuff.

@AlexSora89 - "the same happening with a previous console"

I'm kind of at the point where I wouldn't insult my Dreamcast by comparing it to Wii U. ;-) (though I suppose the similarities are getting hard to ignore.) And I wouldn't insult my Wii U by comparing it to Vita. Or PSPgo.

Sorry for the confusion.

@IceClimbers - Every Wii U now comes w/ a wig so when your friends and family walk in the room you don't have to be embarrassed to be seen playing 1.

It was Reggie's idea, after the NWC trouncing he took in SSBU.

(But really, what the heck is a Wiig, it's what my tablet keeps auto-changing Wii to?)

@BLPs - It's not your fault, it's not even your girlfriends fault, it's Nitnedo's fault, E3 was that bad, no self respecting Nintendo gamer could be happy after that poor showing. PS4 and X1 sales probably spiked after E3, and it wan't b/c of hololens, it was 92m Wii owners deciding it was time to move on.

and.... I'm not helping, am I? Point is, depression is ok when there's a reason, and Ntineod gave us lots of reasons. It's only when you are depressed w/o reason that depression is bad. I'm depressed all the time, I read the newspaper, it's only logical. :-)

@Samuel-Flutter - E3 was so bad I think Nitnedo broke me. I've stopped expecting anything from them. It's bad enough to kid around and guess about stuff that we don't get - like a Wii U price drop or a Players Choice line - but when people start expectng stuff like Metroid Prime 4 and AC on the Wii U, but they give us Federation Force and ACaF instead, well it's not fun even guessing anymore. :-(

True story - back in the mid 80's when I was a CS major in college my kid sister was in elementary school. She was learning nearly the same stuff I was. I switched my major to Sociology b/c I realized all those young kids would be taking my jobs away.

@JaxonH - "Even Sony has put their IP on smart phones,"

There have been about 1,000 articles and 1 million comments on here about Nintendo and smart devices but hardly anybody ever brings those games up. A couple do, but it's very rare.

Nintendo may leave the hardware market some day, but this doesn't accelerate that end, it prolongs it as they both make a few bucks and market to the kids growing up on tablets. Money + eyeballs = win. (I'd gather a few kids will move on from this to real Pokémon games. Who knows, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon could reap the rewards.)

@JaxonH Advance Wars 2 more of the same? Really liked the first one. They didn't go all DK and ramp the enemy AI up to 11 did they, the first 1 was just about perfect, there was 1 fog of war level w/ a lot of enemy tanks I was never able to beat but it wasn't in story mode, I beat the final boss city.

So this is the real game, and not some knockoff clone? (I know some people think this is just a Minecraft clone, but it's not, it's a 2D version of Minecraft, subtle but different.)

We played the PS3 demo and I can see this doing well on Wii U and 3DS, AKA the only 2 systems on the planet w/o Minecraft. A 2 fer 1 deal and I'm sure my kids would pick it up.

rjejr commented on Reaction: The Concept of eShop 'Early Access' ...:

I think before entering the land of pay-to-test Nintendo still needs some work on a few of those things in that 2nd paragraph. Yes Splatfire was a nice occurrence, but they still need demos of their own games. Splatoon, Captain Toad and several others are in stores, why not in homes? And how many Nintendo games go on sale? None we're in the Nidia Humble Bundle. Admittedly Nintendo isn't an Indie but games like PushMO and Tipping Stars could have been in there, Guacamole is a $15 game. And Lego games are on sale in the esh op monthly, but Lego City Undercover not even once in 2 years. I know, I've been waiting.

So before they start early ac cess they need to step it up in a lot of other areas where they are sorely lacking. Demos would be a nice start.

@BLPs - I'll keep working on it. Oh, I haven't figured out email on my tablet either, so I haven't read your Splatfest reply. My kids are learning coding in Kodu. Kudo? on the family PC. I don't know, just some Microsoft brainwashing thing I think. MS already owns my kids minds anyway, bought them w/ Minecraft.

@Spoony_Tech - I've always felt Splatoon was a subscription based game like those 4 part TellTale games like Walking Dead and Game of Thrones. We pay all the money in May for part 1, then get part 2 in June, 3 in July and 4 in August to complete the game. I'm drawing a blank on what that model is called but I've been calling this the Summer of Splatoon Subscription Service. (Apparently PvZ Garden Warfare did the same thing last year as well.)

rjejr commented on Guide: How to Get Involved in Splatoon's First...:

@BLPs - Don't confuse personal views w/ rational or irrational views.

We'll be home playing for awhile, so the 4th is OK for us, but that still doesn't mean I don't think it isn't a really stupid decision by Nintendo to hold it that day, as any sane person can surely realize it's a bad choice. Are people over reacting? Well maybe, but that's what the internet is for, 80% porn, 18% primal scream, 2% other.

And it doesn't matter that the US only makes up 5% of the world's population, as this is primarily a US event, so the whole rest of your argument is spurious at best. It should be the people's job in Japan to know what day is best to have the splatfest, and what day is worst, and what day is indifferent. 52 Saturdays in the US every year and they picked possibly the absolute worst one. Parents do not what or need more things to fight about w/ their kids. Having a 1 day event on that day is total bullsh for the father's on here who kids like the game.

I'm half convinced Reggie did this on purpose. Maybe 3/4 convinced.

Similar argument but different result. I'm a NYer, 9/11 means something to me, and SMM is releasing that day. But SMM is a global release - unlike so many other games where Nintendo likes laughing at us - so the US isn't the only factor. I understand their 30 year anniversary arguement. I'd prefer they had chosen another day, but I understand why, it's logical, most people can easily grasp it. But you are right, big world, and the US is a small part of it.

Back to Splatfest - biggest problem which I haven't seen you mention - Splatfest was resscheduled from weeks earlier. If July 4 was such a good idea why not originally have it then? People were already upset about the night before cancelation, and people we're immediately afraid Nintendo would do something stupid like have it on the 4th. It would have taken hardly any effort on their part to figure out the 4th was a bad idea, people were already dreading it.

Can't defend stupid.

@Samuel-Flutter - I have 200 points on my Wii from when I bought Chick Chick Boom for 800, effectively making it a $10 game. At least the Wikipedia U eshop is much better about credit card purchases, I have $2.08 on my PS3 I can't seem to spend. When I bought the ME trilogy for $4.80 they added $5 to my account so I still have that money left - it was about $5.23 w/ tax.

I used the last of my coins about a month ago, we got 2 t-shirts the boys will grow into in about 3-5 years, some stationary we'll be using as thank you cards for my sons SSB themed bar mitzvah and that cool all black Zelda messenger bag which is much better in real life than the pics. Maybe we'll use it to collect his cards at his party?

So for free we've certainly made out ok.

Still would like info on the new program though, I'm boycotting the eshop until it's up and running.

rjejr commented on Pokémon Shuffle is Heading to Android and iOS...:

@Spoony_Tech - Just wondering if you played Rumble? That 1 really felt pay walled to me as those high diamond balloons seemed like they would always be out of reach, free-to-start. I had no problem w/ Shuffle except I don't like the heart per level rule. I'm about 967 in Candy Crush and I'm used to going on a roll once in a hill and playing 8 or 9 levels for 5 hearts. And some of those Shuffle levels are really short. But I never felt like I had to pay for it.

I don't think this is Nintendo on smart devices, as the article said this will likely be the Pokemon Company if you want to search for it. Nintendo will be listed somewhere but probably not the best way to find it.

Edit: Pokémon Rumble World will probably be next, all those diamond balloons will make them a lot of money. I imagine this one is more of an easy advertisement for that one as I don't see how they make a lot of money on this.

rjejr commented on Nintendo Is "Exploring" The Idea Of Early Acce...:

Exploring Early Access?

Shoudn't they start w/ something easy like demos first?

Seriously how many Nintneod games get demos? Almost none. Which is absurd b/c so many of those game demos already exist - go look at any in store kiosk, about 6 demos, but none of home consoles. Splatoon even has 1.

But they want to start Early Access? Crawl before you walk Nintnedo.

Edit - I'm not opposed to the idea, just spent $15 on Lego Worlds on Steam, just that I think Nitneod needs to take baby steps first.

@aaronsullivan - I think Starfox makes a really good B-side to Zelda for a holiday release, Starfox early Nov followed by Zelda U early Dec, but w/o Zelda U it looks like a B-side holiday for Wii U. :-(

I know PS4 won't get Uncharted 4 until next year, but they'll be pushing COD and SW:B, so even w/o exclusives they have a marketing strategy ready for the holidays I'm sure. I just don't know how Wii U can be made to look like THE must have holiday gift?

rjejr commented on Talking Point: The Mystery of Devil's Third an...:

@AlexSora89 - All the stuff Nin tendo has been doing of late to not sell Wiig U. Hasn't had a true price drop since it launched at $299 and that's still the price. No Players Choice line of budget games. ACaF is an amino driven board game. Metroid Prime is a 3DS game. No Zelda U at E3, just showing it would have at least made people a little happy. Too much of Nintendo saying - we aren't talking about NX now. Either talk about it or don't, don't keep talking about not talking about it. Hyrum Warriors and Bayonetta 2 could have had more marketing last year as exclusives for gamers.

I just don't see any real effort from Nintendo to sell WiU. Not even Mario and Sonic at the summer Olympics is on that inforgraphic. Why not have a game w/ Mario in the title to advertise more games on Wiig U?

rjejr commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Suggests Low Key and Accessib...:

@aaronsullivan - Glad to hear you're looking forward to Starfox, I know it has a lot of fans, but I assumed they all owned a Wii U by now ;-)

We're looking forward to Yarn Yoshi, maybe they'll bundle that and a yarn amiibo. :-) I think Oct 16 is a wee bit early for a big holiday push but I suppose it's better than nothing. They made 3 colors of yarn Yoshi, might as well bundle 1.

I still don't know what my kids are buying and putting on their lists yet. Lego D and SKylanders will probably be gifts, SMM may be day 1 or a birthday gift for my son Sept 17, who then has his bar mitzvah Oct 17, day after Yoshi, so he'll have some money to get it if he wants it.

So we're set, we're happy w/ what we're getting - XCX is a huge game for me - I'm just talking about generally selling Wii U. Still looks to me like Nitnedo really doesn't make that much effort. They are really pushing Spaltoon, I'll give them that. If Wii U is still $299 at Christmas though then you have to admit they really aren't trying to sell it.

rjejr commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Suggests Low Key and Accessib...:

@aaronsullivan - I just don't see Starfox as a big holiday seller, offline single player isn't what sells "family" gaming. And I actually just told Sinalefa that maybe they'll go all in on Skyalnders what w/ their own Wii/3DS Racers game which we havne't seen yet - maybe Activision is letting Ntinedo announce it in a Direct?

They had a great opportunity to market Wii U as a gaming machine last year w/ 2 gamer games - Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2 - but I never once saw them in an ad together. And they were exclusives. If PS4 had thos 2 exclusives we would have been bombarded w/ ads last holiday.

So who knows, I just can't see it selling w/ what I know right now. I think even an HD remake of Sunshine, or a 2-pack of SMG 1 + 2 in HD would do better than Starfox, it's just too unassuming, and "Star" is right for this holiday, but not the Fox" part, DI 3.0 and SW:B have space pretty well covered. I don't see how it can compete w/ either of those, let alone both.

rjejr commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Suggests Low Key and Accessib...:

@aaronsullivan - Splatoon.

I just finally hit level 20 last night, so now I blend in w/ half the other players, they really need to raise that cap before we are ALL level 20, then whats the point? I'm B- in ranked, probably will be forever. My oldest has played some but the youngest is still doing Mincecraft, which he didn't get to play for 3 days after his account got hacked/stolen.

And yes, best is yet to come w/ Sapltoon - rainmaker and tower defense moving platform level should really change things up. We're invited to a 4th bbq at 3PM a few blocks away, I expect a lot of Splatfest up until then, after part 2 of Pokemon at 8AM, my kids favorite tv show.

@rastamadeus - What a drag it is getting old ;-)

I don't think NX is going to do anything for me. I was planning on getting a 3DS XL for my birthday in a few weeks but now I'm thinking a different route and going Lego Mindstorm EV3 (I'm guessing you know what that is after our respective Lego vacation discussions a couple of years back). Only thing holding me back is wrapping my brain around the price. Also looking into Raspberry Pi and Sphero. 3D printers are getting so cheap so fast I want to wait a year or two. You have any other suggestions?

@sinalefa - Well there are a lot things Nintnedo could do for the holiday, but what will they? I think when I wrote that yesterday I was trying for it to be a real question and not just a rant. At 8AM this rainy Sunday morning I'm mostly just ranting. :-)

I guess the thing is, I've usually had what I felt were good ideas for selling Wii U - price cuts, bundles, game discounts - the usual stuff that everybody seems to know EXCEPT Nintnedo. Now after E3, looking at the upcoming game line-up and Nitnedo constantly talking about not talking about NX, and I just don't see how Wii U sells well this holiday. Maybe they'll go all in on Skyalnders?

@Grumblevolcano - So I was half right? Way things have been going lately I'll take that as a win. :-) (I spent 2 hours sitting in the rain yesterday for a suspended 1-1 tie baseball game)

@Kaze_Memaryu - "scan an amiibo, create a data backup"

Well they could, and should, but then they coudln't sell you separate amiibo for each game. Which they said they would't do, but then basically did when they made the SMB line, and the Spaltoon line.

It really bothers me that there is a huge box labeled "amiibo" sitting in the Spalton hub - I'm guessing you've seen it - but all our amiibo just give an error message. That really bothers me. It's Nitnedo's 1st party game, they are pushing amiibo, they put that big amiibo box there, but none of our amiibo work? Hyrule Warriors isn't Nintedo 1st party, the game came out before amiibo even launched, yet all my amiibo do something in it. How can Ntinedo not even match that w/ their own games?!?!? Give us some random money or experience points or something. Do experience points even matter anymore, most people in the game are sitting at level 20 now anyway. Maybe a random buff for single player like you get on the gear. But dont' give me error messages for my amiibo after making such a big production at launch about how amiibo are better than other NFC toys b/c they work in multiple games. Just no.

rjejr commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Suggests Low Key and Accessib...:

Serious question - is this really Nintendo's "holiday" game? And if so, do they really expect to sell a lot of Wii U b/c of it? Are we expecting Star fox bundles? As bad as ACaF looks they would probably be better off bundling that and a couple of AC amiibo w/ Wii U for the holiday family buying crowd than Starfox. Will XCX get a bundle like Japan did considering JRPG are still niche in the US? Maybe all of Sony marketing of FFXV and the FFVII remake will help create interest in XCC?

All that said, Splatoon may be their best bundle option for families that still don't have a Wii U. Maybe put all 3 amiibo in the box for $299?

@Captain_Gonru - You liked something? Maybe you should take an aspirin and lie down. ;-) Slaton was a bit much, until you realize all the gear was skins. I'd rather see them try maybe too much like that than whatever it is they do in Kirby. I really like Yoshi, use an amino as a friend, but w/ 2 player it doesn't matter. I bet my youngest son will play it both ways just to compare. I thought that's what they did in SSB, tag team partner, but the way they are used in there now is almost useless unless amino only SSB tournaments start taking off.

@Grumblevolcano - or to play devils advocate - that is the kind of thing you should get for spending $13 on a toy. It doesn't change the game whether you have it or not, but it is something substantial if you do have it. Captain Toad Treasure Tracker was complete idiotic nonsense. Slaton is pretty good too, once I came to terms w/ what it did and didn't do. It only unlocks challenges, not new maps, missions or levels. If the entire single player was locked away, I never would have bought the game.

For Starfox, which I have, I'm OK w/ unlocking his N64 airwing. It would be interesting to see if anybody could tell the difference between that old 1 and the new one 3 generations later. ;-)

@Shiryu - "but I do believe they are saturating the market with so many different versions."

When my wife and I were first discussing marriage and kids we said we wouldn't have kids until both Pokemon and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers went away. My kids are 10 and 12 now. :-)

There will always be kids, therefore there will always be toys, therefore there will always be NFC game related toys. Even if home consoles and handhelds go away there will be NFC tablets. I bet in a couple of years all tablets have NFC inside. And in a few more years NFC chips and 3D printers. I view 3D printers as the logical successor to PlayDoh and that is going on 60 years. They need to come down to about $300 like a home console or Lego Mindstorm but I view it as inevitable.
