siavm commented on NPD Results Bring Solid 3DS Numbers as Wii U S...:

@S-Miyahon if nintendo does not market it better it will not sell. The wii had a new way to play and so nice ads that hot the point out at what it was. The wii u to most still just seems like a wii with a new tablet like controller. And to people who game it is just a gen behind with less games. So nintendo is going to have to have something that gets people on the wii u. Hopefully it is at E3.

siavm commented on Nintendo Direct: Nintendo Shows Off The Peculi...:

I did not know what to think of this game in the past bug that general made me want this game. Now I want to put people who would not be in funny scenarios into some. Nintendo is killing it with these one game directs.

siavm commented on Feature: How A Team Of Dedicated Fans Is Fixin...:

I personal find this sickening. They the game is great as is. Sure it is not as good as Melee in some ways but I trust the guy who made it. I am not screwing all the work he put into. Something like this should be like its own game somewhere else not some fan crap that messes with a game I love. If you like Melee play Melee. Don't bring the uniqueness of this game down to say this is better. Luckily with the new games crap like this won't happen again.

siavm commented on Feature: What We Want to See in Nintendo's Sup...:

@mostro328 this is only the second direct of the year. No other games out side of kart have release dates, yet this one is not about anything but one game. Nintendo has released kart and smash a month apart to great success to both games. And nintendo in recent years only dedicates a whole direct or press info and previews to a game coming soon. And with a kind of unheard of 4 day announcement of this direct it is less me saying something stupid and you just not paying attention. Or this could be a fall release. I don't really care. I just hope I get to play it this year.

siavm commented on Talking Point: The Timing of Nintendo's Super ...:

Here is something crazy. What if it is releasing this month. And this direct is the kick off to a crazy month of promotions for the game. They have released kart and smash a month apart last time. Maybe that is the plan this time too. I know that sounds crazy but they have stealth launched games before like this. But most likely is a later date revealed, characters, some game modes, and maybe even how the online will work this time.

siavm commented on Former Criterion Boss Alex Ward Laments Issues...:

I was not buying a months old port I could have on other systems. I bought monter hunter 3 ultimate instead because unlike need for speed that was a game that really was worth getting again or for the first time. And the game was like $30 on other systems versus full price on wii u. If the game came around the same time it may have did better. Sure a little better is good but not if it comes with a wait a is barely noticeable to the average person.

@Shade_Koopa I recently got back into brawl and it is still laggy. I have 30mb Internet connection and trying to get online can lead to a disconnect. Or waiting in the lobby too long does the same thing. So what ever was used to get it to run sucks. Never had these problems with Mario kart on wii.

siavm commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:

The wii u version was only shown for a few seconds in a nintendo direct last year. And no gamepad use has been shown. The game was supposed to come out last year and still nothing on the wii u version other than this and maybe it cancelled articles. I don't think they can use the gamepad for anything other than a menu and off tv play. And by the time it comes out the other versions may already have their prices dropped. If so one wants to save third party games on wii u with this go ahead. I will cancel my wii u preorder on amazon. I may just wait to I get a ps4 to get this game.

siavm commented on Nicalis Boss Tyrone Rodriguez Thinks The Wii U...:

Weird how some of you just turn on people bringing games to the wii and now the wii u. The gamepad has not done what the wiimote did. The wii mote brought in a new way to play, the gamepad to most just seems like what happens when the low res tablet meets consoles. The result as seen as been not so great. Rayman is the only game I have played that really used the gamepad well. Normally that is nintendo job to showcase there games the best but they are not using the pad to great degrees. And the games this year look great but don't any of them, minus maybe x, look to use it for much other than a menu.

siavm commented on Airtight Games Feels That Murdered: Soul Suspe...:

@unrandomsam monster hunter 3 was made for the wii. And ported to the 3ds. And a year later to wii u and 3ds for the rest of the world. Game was not made for the wii u original but they got it to work good. Meaning even if a game is not original made for the system it can be changed like re4 on wii. Don't tell me that is not the best way to play that game. They can make it work but they see no profit in doing so. So like I said crap excuse. Also deus ex was released on multiple systems before the wii u and after the wii u. Square did it with that game why not this one?

siavm commented on Airtight Games Feels That Murdered: Soul Suspe...:

Something is wrong here. That was one of the worse excuses I have ever heard. Brutality honest is, "third party games don't sell so we are not bringing it over." This crap excuse is just crap. The best games on wii u barely use the pad in great ways. Rayman used it good but was brought to other systems. And the wii u gamepad has all the buttons so any excuse pass it won't sell is crap. Remember that.

siavm commented on Watch_Dogs Delayed Again on Wii U, Will Arrive...:

I was going to buy the game last year. But this delay screwed with that. Now by the time the game comes out I may have a ps4. I may just get it on that. And at this rate cancelling this game would be better than the fate it is going to get. Third parties have been bad on nintendo consoles for almost two decades. This is the worst it has been and with so many things to put games on nintendo is at a very big disadvantage. It is really going to depend on how nintendo does things this year. It may not bring third party but at least it will show they can still can keep us fans coming back.

siavm commented on Capcom Claims Its New Panta Rhei Game Engine C...:

I read another article and it sounds like the new engine while adaptable is only for ps4, x1, and pc. They will just continue using mt on wii u going forward since that is about as strong as the previous gen consoles.

siavm commented on EA Germany Survey Fails To Acknowledge The Wii U:

We need to stop acting like this is an EA and nintendo thing. This is a nintendo every major third party thing. You people talking are not buying third party games and neither is anyone else for the wii u. And this has been going on for years now. Sure they have not been good ports but they are the games nintendo let the third parties put out. And we need to stop acting like nintendo is competing with the other consoles. They have said they are not. And since they are not, especially with the hardware they have out what do you think third parties are going to do. Sure the wii u is closer than the wii was in specs to the systems it is up against but the sales are about to be eclipsed by the other two in a few months. So unless nintendo changes expect the worst third party support nintendo has ever seen. And that may lead to other things if nintendo does not get the support and fans don't buy the third party games.

siavm commented on Poll: As the PS4 Arrives, What Do You Think of...:

The reason the wii came out on time was wii sports. I bought a lot of new people in. Us nintendo fans were there but were pretty outmatched by the new gamers young and old. Now that was died. It is pretty much us nintendo fans supporting it now and a very small number compared to the wii numbers of new gamers. Unless nintendo has another wii sports like game coming out next year third is sadly were they are staying. Smash and Mario kart are big but they did not bring the numbers like wii sports brought in. I am still going to support it but I may get a ps4 before the first price drop.

siavm commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Safe and Family-Frie...:

I went to check the parental settings in the system and it has a feature that blocks sharing of data. Which means if they their parental controls and told parents to put them in place nothing would be getting out to kids. Meaning there is no reason to shut this down. And you write this like this is a new service. This has been out for almost two years. I have not seen any articles especially ones that say this is not safe for children to use. This is the first I seen from you guys. The only thing I have seen is articles saying this needs to be more user friendly. So it is weird seeing this article up when in the past you all would have not written this for this app.

siavm commented on Iwata: Wii Fit U's Free Trial Period Will Impr...:

The concept behind it is cool. If you have a balance board and a wii u just buy the $20 meter and you are in. But I don't have a balance board so this is worthless to me. And paying $90 for something I will use for a little is not a seller for me. And since people already know what wii fit is I doubt they will be selling a lot of these.

Now if they made like a smash or Mario kart beta for this holiday that came with systems and was available to download now they could build buzz and start moving more systems. They have to understand their casual efforts are not going to be that effective anymore thanks to other devices out their.

What was effective though for them this year was the 3ds. And it worked because they released games we wanted to play for it for almost the whole year. But seeing as how they are struggling to even make casual games on time with the wii u I fear they may not even close to get the wii u where they need to get it before the x1 and ps4 completely make it look like just the other console.

Nintendo needs to get some third parties on board to full out next year and more first party games or wii u might not even be a quarter the success the wii was.

I love to see someone defend this. No flipnote and now they take away this. I wonder when miiverse is gone to. Only way people will be able to talk on nintendo systems is going to be by going out and sending smoke signals. Unless the smoke makes a unappropriate shape.

siavm commented on This Is How Much Space Super Mario 3D World Wi...:

This brings back down my hype for this game. The first Mario game on a nintendo system is supposed to bring the system up. I did not feel that last year and I am not feeling it this year. After galaxy I was kind of expecting next epic now I just don't know. Good games can come in small sizes but this is going to be the biggest game they have for wii u this year. I hope like someone you this is good compression but seeing how they have been missing there mark this year and pushing back games. I am a little worried they pushed this out just to meet the holiday need and did not go in feel.

siavm commented on Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Will ...:

We can blame third parties all we want but at the end of the day it is nintendo that signs off on this. We should get the same game on all systems but since nintendo has not been the best at getting support they let some third parties take shortcuts on their games. Unless a third party has a hit on the wii u expect this just like the last few gens to continue. I would say it should not continue but I don't want nintendo to start dipping on first party support just so they can have on more games from third party games and more on par games.

siavm commented on Talking Point: Pokémon X & Y's Grand Global R...:

Leaks are a thing that are nothing new in their digital age. We know all about the next iPhone or ipad months before it is out. Most know to avoid leaks by not following the game or going to unconfirmed articles. Outside of this article I would not know this was happening. And the previews you guys do and other sites do pretty much spoil most games anyway. And this is Pokemon. It is not like they are spoiling much people already don't know in the leaks. There are gyms, Pokemon, towns, and it is 3d. Not really much to spoil here. And if you are talking about the Pokemon as leaks I don't really care. We are going to know who most are in a week. So leaks are bad but if you want to avoid just don't look for them.

siavm commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Could Have Ruled The Micro-C...:

This would have maybe been smart two years ago. Now it would be stupid. The has been going down since 2011 even before the wii u was a thing. It would have help that year. Now wii u and 3ds are the priorities. The vita tv exist because Sony is very desperate. The vita is tanking bad. And no games are in site to fix that. The wii u is not doing great but unlike vita it has some big games coming next year that will push up wii u sales. So unless you want a super downgraded wii or wii u this idea does not need to be liked at.

siavm commented on Poll: Would You Buy Grand Theft Auto V On Wii U?:

I don't like buying games twice. So I am happy just playing it on 360. And for anyone saying this is the same game or not your cup of tea you are probably just fooling yourself. From the two days I have played this everything about it is awesome. Violence is the draw but they and so many full on activities to this game that even you haters of the franchise might be swayed to give this a look. You can play tennis, golf, save people from getting mugged or chasing a purse snatcher down and returning the purse, towing cars, scuba diving, racing on and off road, parachuting off mountains, and a lot more things that don't involve violence. So things are full featured enough they could be their own game but it is one game. So haters play this at a friends house (if you are 17 or 18 in some places) and see this is more than just driving and shooting, and why a lot of people are saying this is probably the best game of the year.

siavm commented on Soapbox: Why Grand Theft Auto V Isn't For Me:

I understand what you are doing with this article but it comes off more like a Fox News article like the one against mass effect than a play happy games article. I love wind waker and will get it again since my last one on GameCube got messed up before I could beat it again. But I am getting gta. And you generalizing San Andreas because you did not play it is messed up to me. That game had a lot of fun things in it. What other game can you fly in a jet pack or and bike around Los Angeles to Las Vegas. And by now most have the systems to play this game on. And remember this is a game. It is not real. So if you feel bad when fake things happens what about real things? And just because you are in a part of your life where you can not play it don't make it seem like the ones of us who can are bad people. I am nice. But I have to see the world from all lights. That means from colorful games to red games. And I hope you do not watch breaking bad because that would also defeat your argument. Like I said I understand the reasons why this article is up but your opinion is more in the minority on this one.

siavm commented on Soapbox: 'Vintage' Used Game Prices Do Nothing...:

They have done this before with games like marvel vs. capcom 2. But as soon as that became available digitally the prices went down. So the only way to stop them from doing this on old games is for companies to make games available digitally. And seeing that nintendo has been adding old systems to the vc and now the eshop and full games are available for wii u games. It is only a matter of time before GameCube games and wii games are on eshop. But to be a little fair here in the US this game can almost go for $200 used.

siavm commented on New Footage For Medabots: DUAL Blasts into View:

I watched the anime for this and played the gba game for this but I thought the franchise had gone away. Nice to know it still has some kick but seeing what looks like the same robots from over ten years ago does not make me think they are adding much to it. So even if this some how came here I would past on it.

siavm commented on GameStop Accused of Re-Printing Xenoblade Chro...:

Are you sure this is true? I did not think stores could print anything. They order the games from companies and I thought the companies send them companies from there manufacturers they use. GameStop does usually not send used games in their normal cases. The only thing they did was order cases and printing the the slips in the cases. Nintendo would not be down with this so you guys really need to make sure this is true because it just sounds false.

When is flipnote coming? It was early August now it is tbd. Can you all get in contact with nintendo to see if it is still coming this month? I know they said something about the servers not being able to satisfy the world but they dated it and with all the 3ds's out there they should have been ready for this.

siavm commented on New Nintendo Direct Coming August 7th, Focus I...:

@kevinaa and what is wrong with that. They can do commericals and tv appearences or give a gaming site a scoop if they want a lot of people watching it. This is a cheap way to spread a message they control on a semi monthly basis. The game sites post if it is anything good and of course gamers will talk of forums and social media if the message is big enough. And it is weird to hate on them for giving messages like this on this monthly basis.
