SMW commented on Poll: Have You Been Able to Buy the Super Smas...:

First wave was a piece of cake. I got the ones I wanted: DK, Kirby, Link, Samus and Fox.

Second wave, I found my Diddy Kong one at a local store. Still undecided on Captain Falcon.

Third wave, I have Bowser and Toon Link preordered. Hoping to scout out the rest. (Sonic, Meta Knight and Dedede)

GCN adapter I decided to skip due it it only working in Smash.

SMW commented on Actor Is Suing Nintendo After Suffering Heart ...:

I'm not doubting that him overheating in that suit contributed to his condition, but it certainly couldn't have been the only thing to trigger it.

Its still not right to deny someone water breaks when wearing such a suit outside in the heat, though!

SMW commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Do...:

Now this game is my favorite DKC of the three! I love the hub map, the variety of stages, the bosses, the music, Swanky's pitching minigame, the sidequests, and of course the Kongs themselves!

On a side note, that one underwater lurchin boss, Barbos, drove me insane! Now Bleak's House, thats one of my all time favorite bosses. Snowball fight!

SMW commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

This game has plenty of issues, but I still enjoyed it! There is WAY too much hate going around for this game. Its nowhere near perfect, but its not that bad of a game.

Also I just pretended that this game took place in some bizarre universe separate from the typical Sonic universe and suddenly the strange character designs stopped bugging me.

SMW commented on Sonic Boom Wii U And 3DS Both Stall Outside Of...:

I didn't think that the Wii U one was all that bad. Sure it was rough around the edges and needed A LOT more polish, but I still had fun with it. Worst Sonic game? Not in my opinion. Although its nowhere near the top either.

SMW commented on Walmart Display Shows Us Which amiibo Are Comp...:

Looks like for now, just DK serves any purpose for me. Fox and Kirby may be worth it depending on if they work on their upcoming Wii U games. (Think about how awesome it would be to race as them in MK8, though! Such a missed opportunity.) I might just get Fox regardless of if I have any use for him or not, though!

SMW commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

All I wanted was to play my Wii VC games with the GCN controller again. Guess I'll have to stick with the classic controller. Unless they ever bring N64 games to Wii U, which they do not seem to be in any hurry to do. :(

Although I recall seeing some third party Wii-specific GCN adapters, I may just try one of them.

SMW commented on Nintendo Confirms Final Week Details For Its S...:

I didn't know that Tropical Freeze was going to be in on this sale! Who knows how long it'll take it to get down to that price again. Heck Returns (Wii) still hasn't really dropped down below $30.

Looks like I'll be nabbing Tropical Freeze!

SMW commented on Rumour: Unconfirmed Smash Bros. Footage Suppos...:

All this time I thought Shulk was short for She-Hulk and I kept wondering why people would think She-Hulk would be in Smash. :P Now it all makes sense. lol

EDIT: A quick Google search shows that I wasn't alone in thinking Shulk meant She-Hulk. Now I don't feel so dumb. lol

SMW commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

Where is Diddy... Wait a minute. Tracks based off of Excitebike, F-Zero and Animal Crossing. Link playable? Blue Falcon returns? Wohoo! I still hate paid DLC since I'm so cheap, but I can't possibly pass this up.

SMW commented on Review: Midtown Crazy Race (Wii U eShop):

@PAAppleyard Try Amazon. I've had a couple issues, but for the most part both Midtown Madness 1 and 2 games still work. (Tried Windows 7 & 8) Music frequently likes to not play, but other than that, they work.

As for this game, they were clearly trying to copy Midtown Madness. A practice mode where you can freely drive around a city? I'm surprised they didn't copy the cops and robbers game from Midtown Madness as well. :P

SMW commented on Movie-based Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game ...:

WOAH. Woah. Woah. THOSE are the turtles of that new movie?! I wasn't aware that this was going to be a horror movie... Seriously, I'm practically 30 and those turtles are scary enough to give ME nightmares!

The recent cartoon had some weird design choices, but they grew on me fairly quick. I can't imagine ever liking THIS design, though.

SMW commented on Satoru Iwata Recovering From Surgery To Remove...:

Wohoo! So relieved he is going to be alright. Now he better get enough rest before returning to work! Don't want him overworking when he needs to spend time recovering. Crazy Iwata even working from home while he recovers; don't overwork yourself!

SMW commented on Ubisoft Runs Another eShop Discount Bonanza in...:

Rayman Legends! I rented it quite a while back but have yet to buy it due to being so behind on my backlog. That game is outstanding! I MUST get it now! A little early birthday present (July 14th for anyone who wants to know!) for myself. Heck thats even pretty close to the Amazon price!

SMW commented on E3 2014: Hands On With Nintendo's New Online S...:

So glad to see this game get so much hype! That means that I won't have to worry about not having people to play this with. I'm sure I'll get and remain addicted to Splatoon for a very long time.

SMW commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Won't Bring Live Twitch Stre...:

I agree with Reggie that watching streams isn't always all that fun, but clearly there are people that love that kind of stuff.

So that explains why Mario Kart won't let you upload a whole race. Pretty annoying since you can't manually edit the video. All I want is to be able to manually choose my own highlights. (Either that or upload the entire race so I can edit it on Youtube.)

SMW commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Confirmed for Japan With Free...:

Looks so out of place that it reminds me of that Nascar chick appearing in SEGA Racing.

At least we know they made it possible for DLC. Now all I have to do is hope for a Kong pack! Bring back Diddy and Funky!

SMW commented on LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Looks Out of This...:

I can't wait! Batman and Indiana Jones are my two favorite LEGO franchises!

I'm still behind on LEGO games, but I'm catching up. Just about finished with LEGO Batman 2 then I've got Harry Potter 2, Lord of the Rings, Marvel, LEGO Movie... and I think like one or two others I'm forgetting! :P
