sevex commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

If the next Mario Kart 8 DLC was an update that added arena style battle mode tracks then I think a lot of people would be very happy.

I'll buy any additional characters they release for Smash Bros, but the Mii costumes don't really interest me. Maybe if there were premium skins for the existing characters I'd give it a go. (Raccoon suit for Mario, Classic models for characters from the earlier games, etc...)



sevex commented on Guide: Improve Your Wii U's External Hard Driv...:

I can't seem to get this to work. I'm following the directions, but the prompt doesn't appear. Maybe they removed it from the OS already?

I'd like to disable the sleep option as some studies show that having your drives sleep (frequently spin down, then back up again) can cause more wear and tear than spinning them full time. (Some studies also show the opposite, but I keep my PC drives spinning and it has worked out so far.)



sevex commented on Review: 50 Pinch Barrage!! (3DS eShop):

I picked it up after reading this review and so far really like it! I'm more than halfway through, so it's definitely short, but for $3.50 it's pretty polished and can be replayed by people that like to speedrun games or compete on leaderboards.



sevex commented on Don't Seethe Too Much Over Xbox One Shovel Kni...:

OMG I just wanna listen to a longer version of that song. So jealous that only Xbox is getting this. (I wonder if it indicates Battletoads are coming back? Phil Spencer was wearing a Battletoads t-shirt at the Windows 10 presentation in January.)



sevex commented on Nintendo Wins Four At The Game Awards 2014, Wh...:

I have to say that was a pretty great awards show. Much improved over any other year. Every console was well represented, and the focus seemed fairly split between small and large developers.

Also you can tell Geoff Keighley is a big NIntendo fan :) That finale was a really cool surprise.



sevex commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

I think Nintendo is just the only company that can keep an old franchise feeling fresh generation after generation. Sonic is in a bad spot, but you could almost say Megaman is doing much worse. And then there's Castlevania... and Final Fantasy...



sevex commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Emphasizes the Nintendo Diffe...:

I literally just got the last few parts I need for a gaming PC today, but I also got Smash Bros for Wii U. It's gonna be tough deciding which to play with first when I escape from work. (Spoiler: probably Smash Bros, for at least a little bit.)



sevex commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

I think the Vita really is the perfect handheld experience. Nice screen, great controls, lots of cool features...

Yet my Vita is gathering dust in a drawer, while my 3DS has a dedicated space next to where I sleep. You can beat Nintendo for hardware, but you just can't beat em for games.



sevex commented on Video: How Much Faster Is The New Nintendo 3DS?:

There may be something wrong with the 3DS XL on the right, maybe a slow SD card or something? I compared my 3DS XL when it showed the eShop being loaded, and mine was around 8 seconds faster. But then mine took longer than it did to load Miiverse.

Maaan Smash Bros loads quick on the new 3DS though. That was amazing.



sevex commented on Bayonetta Download Code Included With Retail a...:

This deal seems to be different, in Canada at least. The description on the eShop says you can buy Bayonetta 2 for $49.99, and then get a discount when you buy Bayonetta, getting both for $59.98. So rather than free, it gives you the first game for $10? I wonder what this means for boxed copies.

Also weird is that Bayonetta isn't in the eShop yet, so I have no idea how much of a discount you really get.

Nintendo should never have released an 8GB model, especially considering it only has about 3GB remaining after the operating system is taken into account.

(This from someone that owns the 8GB model, but has an external hard drive.)
