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



SMW commented on Nintendo Launches Competition to Win Trip to E3:

Instagram is taking all kinds of beatings around here. lol. I've just never seen the point of Instagram considering theres YouTube and Flickr. That and you apparently need to download the app in order to register. Yuck.



SMW commented on Reminder: Nintendo's Wi-Fi Service on Wii and ...:

Farewell WFC. I had some great times on there; glitches and all. Here are my favorites:

Onslaught, Snowboard Riot, Water Warfare, SEGA Racing, Mario Kart, Goldeneye, Animal Crossing, Excitebike, M&S Olympics, Motoheroz, We Love Golf, Virtua Tennis 2009, and WarioWare DIY.



SMW commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Must Take Careful Step...:

@TruenoGT The uncertainty of the future is exactly why I never cared for DLC. Now I doubt I'd still be playing Mario Golf: WT whenever they take down the 3DS eShop many years from now, but if I wanted to, I better hope I still have that DLC installed on a functional SD card. Otherwise I'm out of luck, well aside from getting it from someone else's SD card.



SMW commented on Nintendo Tees Up Mario Golf: World Tour Online...:

Good to see rankings/tournaments return. Anyone else remember the ones in Toadstool Tour, like the Camp Hyrule one? I did awful on them, but it was still fun being able to 'upload' my score to the site!



SMW commented on Wii Classic Controllers No Longer Being Manufa...:

Shall I wait for N64 games on Wii U or buy a Classic Controller so I can play my copy of 1080 again? Theres no telling how long it'll take to get 1080 onto the Wii U VC, but I don't want to get a Classic Controller for one game.



SMW commented on GameSpy Shutting Down All Online Servers on 31...:

Sad day. I've played countless games hosted by GameSpy. Sure I have not played them too much recently, but I still did on occasion. This just shows that its always good to include an IP-join option for multiplayer and to not fully rely on an outside service! Heck, I can still play GTA2 (yes 2) online. :P

This reminds me of when they shut down the MSN Gaming Zone. I still miss that place!

EDIT: Wait a sec. Unreal Tournament (99) uses GameSpy for the master server list! Nooooooooooo!!! Looks like I'll be using GameTracker to keep tabs on the servers.
