I find amusing to see people bashing the vita for being "an expensive crap without any games" but rushing to protect the Wii U when someone says the ecxatly the same thing about the latest nintendo console.

Well, vita is home for some great gems too... and if sony needs to leave the portable market because of that... well, Nintendo´s home console future should be not so bright!

@ikki5 Agree.... and something faster like google?!

I mean, if I need help with a game, I will look on youtube (If it is not a nintendo game! Great Work Nintendo) or I search on google!

Why should I wait hours to get a answer if I can get it faster with other means? You can´t even ask for people to add you!!! What´s the point of this?!?!

Nintendo really lost me this gen...



Savino commented on Rumour: Nintendo NX Shipping This Time Next Ye...:

The only way I see nintendo succeeding with this NX is if they make a DX12 console! Other than that, I really don´t see why people who already have a PS4 or XOne, or both, would buy another console.

Teh timing is appropriate for a more powerfull console... but a console that is equal the current gen will sink in the same way the Wii U sunk!

What I just read? One or two days?? How long is this? I surely hope he isnt meaning 48hrs! Lets say a regular gamepad's batery life, about 4hrs.

So... I will have to play a game for somethng between 4 to 8 hours to master the controls?
Good times when it only took a 3 minutes run on the first level!



Savino commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Approach to amiibo is In...:

Well... I never care about the use that Amiibos have. (Not a SSB player... so...)
I bought my Samus and a Kirby for my daugther, we´re unlocked the skins for MK8 and they went to the shelf, where they belong.
If someday, a game that really uses all those toys became a reality I will get my ass out of the chair and look for it... other than that, I have more cooler nintendo related toys here!

@Dr_Lugae The only part that you move is your head... that´s the whole thing about VR. Well, this and peripheric vision plus depth.

The Virtual Boy was a 3D device, mainly because you didn´t had the peripheric vision or movement, making the VB only two screens slapped in your face!



Savino commented on The Current State Of Virtual Reality Just Isn'...:

People speaking about pains in the neck, motion sickness, headaches never played with those new VR sets! It´s not 1990 anymore guys! The fact that we can have good resolutions and, most important, huge refresh rates (that´s what really matters here) those problems are gone! They are light (I presume Steam VR and Morpheus are... I just saw Rift till now) and very confortable to use.... in fact, you forget you are using it.

I don´t think that is a tech that will have a huge apeal now... but it´s not a fad, it will become a solid way of entertaiment and research.



Savino commented on Nintendo Is A Slave To Its Past Success, Says...:

I think the opposite.

The problem with nintendo is that they try to innovate too much... all the time.

Now we´´re stuck with huge controller that have no real use that nintendo tried to push on us only for the sake of inovation!
The Wii was great, I have games that I bought only because it played diferent, the Wii U we got a horn in MK8 and a stupid finger in SM3DW!



Savino commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

@MaverickHunterX I guess nobody buys a console for one game! You buy because you believe that the company will offer you a steady stream of quality games during its lifetime. But sure, you buy a console hoping for THAT game!

I can see people buying the PS4 waiting for another Uncharted 4 (although it was already announced... but you got the idea), like I know a lot of people that bought the Wii U waiting for Zelda.

Now, it is true that Metroid never sold too well, but we got a steady stream of the series in the last decade. So, it´s not baseless assumption of mindless fanboy, its Nintendo that don´t apreciate your fanbase very well!

And sure, a game doesnt make or break a console, there´s a good library to back it up, but even that gets old one day! I already traded in my Mario 3D World, NSMBU, Lego City, Nintendo Land among others and now I have only some downloadable games, VC and MK8.... I was expecting Metroid and there´s nothing wrong with that.

Now, I can clearly see that the console has no future, and I will trade it in something that I will enjoy more at the moment! I will not keep here something that I don´t use anymore just because....
That is what smart people do!



Savino commented on Next Metroid Prime Home Console Title "Would L...:

That´s it... I am done with my Wii U! The chance of a Metroid game was the main reason I bought this piece of crap! Of course I bought for MK too, but Metroid was always my go.

Now, after yesterday, and now this, I am ready to trade it in another console (probably PS4) and leave Nintendo until they get their stuff together!!
Seem how Star Fox looks (and plays) I am pretty sure that Nintendo think we are mindless fans that will swallow everything they give!!



Savino commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

When I said at the presentation that the graphics looked dated, everybody start to throw stones at me....

Now you got it from someone who saw the game in person... I mean, graphic isnt THAT important, but it´s not something that you let pass when it´s sub-par!

Reading this made me not want SF Zero anymore.



Savino commented on First Impressions: Kicking Off With Metroid Pr...:

@ikki5 Lol! I know! There was a lot of people angry yesterday and I was one of day!
Disappointments can drive one very mad!
But I am in the same boat as you! I have only a couple of games that I want for my Wii U.... and the only one I really want is Xenoblade.

Star Fox I will buy, but only if it have MP, if it turn out ot be single player only I will buy used!
Yoshi is a cute game, but not my cup of tea.... I probably will buy it for my kids, but again, used...

Nintendo has been loosing me in the last couple of years and I really doubt that I will get the NX someday!

I guess Zelda will be my last nintendo game for a long time! (except if they announce a proper metroid game!!)
