sleepinglion commented on Talking Point: The Wii U eShop is Raising Toug...:

@DefHalan Releasing a game and making excuses for it because it isn't finished is like a store giving you a lump of cloth when you ask to buy a shirt.
"What? Be patient. It WILL be a shirt eventually."
The Letter is a pitiful game and it's growing tiresome hearing the reasons it is being defended. Gunman Clive, Retro City Rampage... those were 1-man titles and kicked some serious gaming butt. The Letter plays like a tech demo from the 1990s and doesn't belong on the eShop.

sleepinglion commented on Nintendo of Europe Launching Wii U Virtual Con...:

This is a cool idea, but as a NA customer I don't expect to see it.
It would have been a lovely promo to offer when the two titles first came out, maybe even throw in a free download of one for day-one buyers.
Seriously. I've yet to see one VC/eShop release that rewards fans for picking it up day-one.

sleepinglion commented on Review: The Letter (Wii U eShop):

Man, the positive comments in Miiverse seem... fake.
Like, really really fake.
Not sure how to investigate this, but there seem to be WAY too many fans of a seriously terrible game.

sleepinglion commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

Physical rewards are officially dead.
Anyone else notice they've massively slimmed down their catalog offerings of late and failed to restock previous ones?
A Mario Kart 8 DLC code for an exclusive vehicle would have been a nice gesture... but that takes effort. Still, if digital is the way they wanna go, make it special for your diehards, Nintendo.

I would have preferred more diversity.
Shantae! Fighting with long hair and sexy dancing.
Someone from a franchise not already represented would have been sweet.
Though he's no longer a Nintendo exclusive, Simon Belmont or the dudes from Contra, even. There's a LOT of RPG love on display in Smash now. Almost too much.

sleepinglion commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

Not just nostalgia, I love A Link to the Past. I revisit it almost yearly and love its story, graphical style, and musical score (most of the themes that debut here are still used in Zelda titles today). It was a close-ish tie with Ocarina of Time... but I'm a sucker for a short, pink-haired Link running into chickens.

sleepinglion commented on Japanese 3DS Owners Can Enter Sega's Fantasy Z...:

At one time wasn't 'Golden Axe' being worked on for 3D release?
I have a soft spot for it. Though, I'd rather have the arcade version despite its length... just looks better. Fantastic end credits, too.
I wonder how the first wave sold here in the US... it was just so amazingly well-done. The fact that the same company has been doing the GBA VC titles shows with how well they run and how they have the instruction manual scans in them. Why can't Nintendo do this for its own in-house releases?

sleepinglion commented on 3DS System Update 8.0.0-18 is Now Live:

Wish list:
1) Cross-buy for Virtual Console titles. Make it so.
2) Folder color options for 3DS menu, perhaps even cute little Nintendo icons to choose from. I've been able to assign icons to folders on my home computer since 1995.
3) Buy the Wii U Main Menu a drink and drop in conversation, "Boy, having item folders sure is a handy thing. ESPECIALLY if you're running out of menu pages."

sleepinglion commented on Controversy Arises at U.S. Pokémon Nationals ...:

Wow, this is pretty heavy stuff.
Quick, if you live in the US tell me (without looking) who your mayor, governor and state senator are, because just about anything else on this news day seems more meaningful than a Pokemon animation.
Minor issue, leave it alone.

sleepinglion commented on Those Mario Kart 8 McDonald's Happy Meal Toys ...:

I keep saying this on other forums and no one seems to listen,
you don't have to buy the meal. Like with Burger King you can just walk in and order a toy for 1.50 and leave. Ask the cashier which selections they have and go to town. It's not rocket science.
On a few other Nintendo sites there are literally dozens of people just shouting at one another for the unhealthy food or getting a child's meal as an adult. Just order a toy. So easy.

sleepinglion commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd July (North America):

Hmmm... lots to choose from but nothing I've been clamoring for.
The Virtual Console needs some adrenaline... maybe an N64 or Gamecube release to get us pumped about it again.
But the indie support is cool to see.

sleepinglion commented on Video: Nintendo UK Sets Its Sights Firmly On T...:

I applaud Nintendo for its representation of diverse children, that's cool, but some of them, especially the clean-cut boys in the car, dress a little too much like they're off to Sunday church or something. I'm a US gamer and I totally can't recall the last time I saw children dress like that in real life... even AT church. Then again, if ads showed us 'real' people McDonald's spots would feature slightly obese people over 30.

Remember the Onett Times Miiverse Community? "Your official source for the latest EarthBound news and information. Posting is restricted to Nintendo representatives, but feel free to add your own comments." And it went on to promptly release NO news =P

sleepinglion commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Should Beware the Slip...:

I don't mind so much if it's optional DLC... and who can argue with free?! But there's no denying it's just terribly out of place in that 'world'. It's like when Danica Patrick showed up in Sonic & All-Star Racing Transformed. Why was this needed over another classic Sega character?! While another car isn't as pointless as several character models given a metal finish... grrr... it's optional, and the sight might be humorous enough to make it worthwhile.

sleepinglion commented on Interview: The Wizard Director Todd Holland On...:

I loved the film. True, I ran to the local theater to catch a glimpse of SMB3 and pick up the little Nintendo Power freebie but it wound up being, as the article said, a layered experience about much more than video games. That's why it still holds up today.

sleepinglion commented on Don't Worry, Nintendo Hasn't Forgotten About T...:

If Nintendo wants us to believe they haven't forgotten the Virtual Console, I'd highly suggest supporting the Virtual Console. You can't let Capcom do all the sales and specials heavy lifting. One release per week without even cracking into the N64 and GC libraries? Tsk tsk.
