solcross commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U GameCube Controlle...:

I looked around online for it on Thursday night, and the only place that still had it was Walmart who promised it would arrive at my home the next day. They shipped it already, but spoiler alert, it did not arrive the next day. Which is fine because I haven't bought the game yet.



solcross commented on Video: This Is What Watch Dogs Looks Like On W...:

Looks alright I guess. Definitely not worth paying full price for, so I'll look for it when it's in the bargain bin or when Best Buy starts clearancing it out for ten bucks like Black Flag and Mass Effect for Wii U.



solcross commented on Nintendo Teams Up With Loot Crate To Deliver a...:

I'm hoping there's at least a Loot Crate-exclusive variant for one of the figures, like Fire Mario or something. I was previously hoping Club Nintendo would've done that this year for the Platinum Rewards since it would've been just in time for the Amiibo release.



solcross commented on Collectors Be Warned, Some amiibo Figures Will...:

I assume it's going to be the characters that probably wouldn't sell as well anyway. Hopefully they don't announce who the characters are, so scalpers don't make the market for them even worse. Chances are if there's a character you want, you would have gotten it anyway by the time they start getting to the point where they're retiring figures.



solcross commented on Watch Dogs Companion App Updated For Compatibi...:

I remember being super optimistic about the Wii U version, because it seemed like it would've meshed very well with the platform.

We've barely heard anything about the port other than what the game WON'T have, so nothing about what Ubisoft has done is inspiring any confidence.



solcross commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Planning To Release Amiibo F...:

I'm curious to see if there'll be a way to transfer data between Amiibo figures. I say that because I'm sure we'll see variants of characters down the line (like a fire Mario, for example), so it would kinda suck to have to start all over.



solcross commented on Club Nintendo Distributing Tomodachi Life Demo...:

Ah bummer. I'm really on the fence about this game and this probably would've nudged me one way or the other. I also got skipped over for the Christmas cards, despite having a Wii U since launch and getting a ton of games for it.



solcross commented on iPhone Gaming Controller Could Mean "The End O...:

Yeah, no thanks. I've never even heard of this thing, but if having buttons was all I cared about when playing a game, I would own a lot more devices.

I don't even play anything more than casual time killer games on my iPhone because I don't want to drain my battery, so this peripheral is useless to me.



solcross commented on EA: Being Voted The Worst Company In America W...:

I genuinely do not believe that EA really cares about Nintendo, even with this. As long as they can please their Xbox/Playstation market they'll probably be satisfied. I doubt they're even concerned with PC gamers.



solcross commented on Year of Luigi Commemorative Coin Emerges On Eu...:

And yet our European brethren still believe that their Club Nintendo is inferior to the NA counterpart. Sorry, but I'd rather have cool physical items than a handful of worthwhile digital downloads that might pop up a few times a year.



solcross commented on Ubisoft Explains Wii U Watch_Dogs Visuals as "...:

I've been waiting so long to hear them talk about the Wii U version. This gives me a little hope that it won't be a garbage port, but hopefully we'll get more information about it before release. I really want to get it on Wii U because I think it could end up being good if they utilize it properly.



solcross commented on Nintendo Considering Cross-Buy eShop Purchases...:

I've stopped buying Virtual Console titles for platforms that are available on both Wii U and 3DS for this reason. I'm not going to get taken advantage of by Nintendo's dated approach to online content, not in this day and age.
