SteveSnowmn commented on Interview: Nintendo and Nd Cube on Bowser, ami...:

I've played a few hours of MP10 now - all three modes - and I'm realizing that it's not the car I have a problem with, it's the decreased focus and frequency of minigames. Not having a minigame after each full turn is a big mistake / disappointment imo, as they are the entire reason why my friends and I play the series! Putting a stronger emphasis on dice rolls and landing on specific board spaces just isn't as fun.

Amiibo party is good fun but I wish it was a bit more fleshed out. Hopefully in the next game they have at least a couple regular MP 1-8 style boards available for normal play.



SteveSnowmn commented on Club Nintendo Rewards are Updated for January,...:

The US press release specifically stated there would be "a number of physical reward options" in February so I will be eagerly waiting for that. I will have about 2000 coins to blow probably after digging out all the codes I've been saving. I have never spent coins on a digital game, I already have the ones I want...that's how I got the coins in the first place.



SteveSnowmn commented on Iwata Cites "Same-Generation Hypothesis" For S...:

@SpookyMeths Yeah, I was 13 or 14 when R/S came out and I didn't have much interest in Pokemon by that point (though I still played them, lol). It wasn't until I went back and played Emerald in college that I really appreciated Gen III. Still my least favorite group of Pokemon overall though. I will be buying Alpha Sapphire but probably not on day 1, since dat Smash Bros.



SteveSnowmn commented on Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Wii U Delay Seems to b...:

I get what they're doing, but if they get it barely under 5GB or however much space people with the basic Wii U have, then those people would need to have not downloaded any other games in order to fit Oddworld...seems unlikely.



SteveSnowmn commented on New Nintendo 3DS LL Outsells Standard Model By...:

Sucks that the XL doesn't get the faceplates but I don't think I could stand upgrading to a smaller screen size than what I have now. Maybe I'll hold out for a limited edition model of the New XL... sounds familiar, cause it was just a couple years ago I was so annoyed with NoA at how long it took them to release a white model or an LE here in the states. Looks like it's the waiting game again for me.



SteveSnowmn commented on Rumour: Secret Chant Within Super Smash Bros. ...:

@ShockeyRai @AVahne It's definitely understandable a technical issue like this could pop-up. However, considering Sakurai clearly planned on having the Ice Climbers in both versions from the beginning, it seems nonsensical to cut them from the Wii U version just because of an earlier promise of identical rosters. Just seems stupid to me. There's no reason to cut them from the console version.



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

Slap in the face to people that bought 90% of these games already to get to platinum status in the first place. So disappointed. If you're going to do all digital rewards, at least give us something exclusive like the Doc Louis Punch Out fight.



SteveSnowmn commented on Satoru Iwata Speaks Of The Need To "Redefine" ...:

Iwata was asked a question and he answered it. It's not like he was speaking about Wii U and dodged by bringing up QOL. Some of you guys are overreacting IMO. I see nothing wrong with this, so long as they stay in gaming, which he said they would right at the beginning.



SteveSnowmn commented on Nintendo of America is Cutting the Price of Fi...:

I'd like to have MK7 digitally but $30 is way too much to double dip. Probably won't play it much after 8 comes out anyway. DK is the only game on the list I don't have, but I've played the Wii one enough that I don't feel like double dipping on that either.



SteveSnowmn commented on Review: Wii Party U (Wii U):

I have this + wiimote preordered on Amazon for $39.99. Sounds like a great deal. I'm curious though, can you play TV party completely without the GamePad or do some minigames require it? I really hate sharing my pad since we can't buy extras yet :P



SteveSnowmn commented on Retro Studios: "After Donkey Kong Country Retu...:

I think a lot of the disappointment would have been nipped in the bud if they had revealed the game at last years E3. We've had 2 years of rabid speculation and many Nintendo fans assuming that whatever Retro was working on, it would show what the Wii U can really do from a graphical standpoint. DKC:TR will be a great game, the announcement was just a bit of a let down for those that let the hype get the best of them.
