rushiosan commented on Mario Kart 8 Sales Increase By Nearly a Third ...:

Better sales won't make MK8 a better, balanced game. Nintendo probably won't fix the item balancing through a DLC or something. They're too cocky for that. After playing it for weeks I realized they missed a perfect opportunity to make the ultimate kart racing game... it's so chaotic and frustrating.



rushiosan commented on Charizard Distribution Event for Pokémon X & ...:

Why can't we have some Wi-Fi event, so everyone would be able to pick that worldwide? You know what's bullshit? People who live in a country that NEVER get this kind of event neither have Gamestop, Walmart or any videogame store that could remotely participate in such events. I had a big reason to put down my X/Y copies, and the lack of worldwide gift events isn't helping. I'm skipping R/S remakes if things don't change at all.



rushiosan commented on Pikmin 3 Update Adds New Stylus Control Style:

To be honest, the default controls (Gamepad) in Pikmin 3 are pretty confusing. Stylus mode is uncomfortable and Gamepad isn't intuitive. I played the "New Play Control" version on previous entries in the series and I'm having a really bad time mastering the controls now. That spoiled a bit my experience with such an unique game.



rushiosan commented on The Club Nintendo Rewards Are Now Updated for ...:

I'd like to get Paper Mario, but it's on Wii mode... I really don't want to use a Wii remote to play this thing, and I already have that game on my old Wii. Would be great to play it using the Gamepad though.

I guess I'll pick Kid Icarus. Does it really worth 200 coins?



rushiosan commented on E3 2014: Ubisoft Admits to Holding Back Comple...:

I don't care about most Ubisoft games. Maybe another Suda51 localization like No More Heroes would lift my hype but that's all. AC is a stinky PoP clone and became the new Call of Duty of wall-jumps with sword fights. Just Dance never got my attention. There are better options if you're a fan of the genre - sadly, Kinect's Dance Central is the best modern dancing game of the past/current gen, or at least a far more complete experience than simply waving a piece of plastic around your body. SEGA's Samba de Amigo was a much much better dance game on Wii. I wish it had a second edition with the addition of Motion Plus to fix all the flaws from its predecessor. The Wii U needs AAA ports, of course, but the main first-party games will definitely raise the bar if properly done. Where's Star Fox, F-Zero, Metroid? These franchises have a lot of potential for both casual AND hardcore gamers but they aren't being explored at full power. Multiplayer, variety and intense online interaction (not only stupid Mii messaging) is the key for turning these franchises into massive sellers. Mario Kart and SSB are the best examples of how a deep multiplayer experience makes a huge difference for everyone.



rushiosan commented on Wii Classic Controllers No Longer Being Manufa...:

1. It could have been a wired controller, connected to USB or GC port. If you don't want wires at all, just give people a BT/Wireless connection too, but keep the wired connection as an option like PS3. I'm sick of recharging batteries every time I want to sit on my couch and play. That's the reason I'm using GameCube controllers in all games that support it.

2. 90% of Wii games could have implemented Classic Controller support. Basically, all games that support Nunchuck extension and don't have significative motion inputs (No More Heroes was a perfect example of how you could ditch the motion bulldoggeyoopsie if you wanted to) could have it. Being forced to play DKC Returns and Mario Galaxy without it is just criminal.

3. If production is stopping, then Wii U Controller should be the replacement for both Wii U (and its Wii mode) AND old Wii hardware. Playstation 2 controllers worked perfectly on Playstation 1, even with improved analog/pressure technology.



rushiosan commented on Video: What Could Xenoblade Chronicles Look Li...:

Wii U could run Wii games with HD (1080p) setting. Emulators can, why a Nintendo machine couldn't? That would give Wii a pretty decent afterlife, and make Wii owners have a real reason to upgrade/transfer all the data.



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Major Wii U Retail T...:

@Henmii They're afraid to lose money somehow. Sonic Lost World is a mediocre game but has a decent/fair demo. There's a strong replayability value in it. However, it's a crappy 10-time experiece instead of 30. It sounds like they're desperately begging you to but that bomb, they're tempting your soul with 10 tries. I vote for unlimited demos anyway, just saying...



rushiosan commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Major Wii U Retail T...:

Having a demo would help a lot to decide which games to buy, and which ones you should rent or borrow. I would never purchase Luigi's Mansion 2 by relying on critic reviews, but after playing it for a while, I can say it's at the top of my favorite 3DS titles. It could have been an instant purchase if I had the demo. New Super Mario Bros. 2 and Yoshi's New Island were both discarded before I put my hands on them (by just looking at youtube). However, Snake Eater 3D actually got me because of the demo (the reviews are full of hate and disencouraged me a lot). "Tasting" the game is extremely important to me...



rushiosan commented on Review: Super Mario All-Stars 25th Anniversary...:

It is the major rip-off that I've seen on past 10 years. If you rip the DVD and dispose the "dummy" files, it shrinks from 4,7GB to only 25MB (the size of any Virtual Console game).

I totally agree with you: they should, at least, have put some commercials, interviews, artworks or sound galleries to fill the game disc with some entertaining extras.

if you already have the SNES cart working, DO NOT BUY THIS ONE, unless you are a hardcore Nintendo fan or a "must-have-every-mario-game".
