sweetiepiejonus commented on Tesco Direct Starts Flogging Wii U 8GB Systems...:


I am certainly not going to try and speak for anyone but myself but my hard drive filled pretty quick and I don't really have that much digital content. I haven't downloaded any really large retail titles at all. I haven't checked but the largest files I have are probably Trine 2 and The Cave and then just a paltry assortment of "indie" and Virtual Console titles. To be honest I don't know where all my space has gone because my home screen just seems a little barren.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Weirdness: These Push Guards for the New Ninte...:


Not really. It isn't something that was created to convince people to buy because they are told this is an issue when it really isn't. While the target audience is apparently small it addressed the exact "problem" I was concerned with. It's just a product that some people may buy, and more than likely, a lot won't.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Weirdness: These Push Guards for the New Ninte...:


May be irrelevant to you, but I will share with you and whoever else may agree that I feel this could be absolutely relevant to me.

The first thought I had when I saw where the slot was located was oh jeez because of my hand placement on my XL that is the exact location I use my pinky finger to support the weight.

I started doing this back with the original brick DS and sure I could try to adopt a new way to hold my device but after so long it is a habit I don't want to have to worry about trying to kick.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Speedrunner Sets New World Record for Fastest ...:

@Keymastar Actually it seems everyone but you and Trippinator are the only ones who didn't just voice their opinions in a civil manner.

I don't think it's considered 'beating' the game but I also think that like he said it should just be in a different category. Same with sequence-breaking.

They shouldn't have one's glitched time record trump someone who takes the dev's designed route to complete the game . I also think that console records should be considered the true records.

It's still very cool and it blows my mind how they come up with this junk, though.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

I will happily sacrifice my social life for Xenoblade again...then again, I don't have a life so I guess it's not really giving much up.

Also super pumped to check out anything Intelligent Systems puts out.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Review: Hazumi (3DS eShop):


You are correct. Their logo is a cycloptic crab.

This game caught my eye the other night. I do plan on getting this soon...that is if I can wean myself off my Rune Factory 4 and Persona Q cycle I'm currently stuck in.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Matters Of Import: Collectible Badge Centre Br...:

I got excited by the title. But only I am to blame for thinking this was going to be an achievement-like system being implemented. Not much interest in this idea though. I'm sure some will like it and I don't think it's a bad idea. Just not for me.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Review: S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Te...:


I got ya. Even so I just don't think it's that big a deal even if they intended the title to be toilet humor. Yes scat can mean 'shoo' and other things but it's funny when people play on words. Now I realize humor is subjective and you have your right to rant just as anyone else does.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Review: S.C.A.T.: Special Cybernetic Attack Te...:

Gauchorino lots of words have many different meanings. And people like to make jokes. Just so you know scat is not an Internet buzzword. There are people who actually study scatology. Don't know why someone would but pretty sure the Internet didn't invent science.

Anyway...good review, Dave. I'd probably enjoy this. I too love seeing Natsume support.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

I will believe it when it's not just a rumor. That being said some people have made some good points. I wouldn't be surprised If some do get discontinued. I visited multiple stores on a recent shopping trip. No Marth to be found. One Target had a decent amount of Trainers and I found, and bought the only Villager I found in stores such as Walmart, Target, Best Buy, and TRU. I even checked several Gamestop's. That also doesn't mean there will never be a second run or something like that.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Weirdness: That Dual Wielding Samus amiibo is ...:

The thing about this 'defect' is that it looks too good.

Perfect placement and just looks like someone made it that way. It definitely could be put back into the box easily and the buyer not be aware.

I could be wrong and it would be a cool thing to have but not that cool.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd May (North America):


Well everyone should get the Kirby Collection anyway but Dream Course isn't included. I don't have any complaints but some people complain about the emulation and how you have to save in Collection. Besides in my opinion it's a bonus to play the games on the GamePad in my opinion.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Microsoft: If You're Backwards Compatible, You...:

Dear Lord. I was a big fan of the 360 and might have planned on getting the new one...until I read this. 1. Backwards compatibility is very important to me 2.) I am now being insulted by some geek because I like to continue to get enjoyment out of my old games without having the hassle of unhooking 1 device to connect my old device to play again

So Nintendo is the only company that provided this feature for their fanbase. So the people (trolls, professionals included) who insult Nintendo's practices and how they treat their fans definitely have a point according to this dingdong. Good job Microsoft you just lost a potential buyer.

Forgot to add that I actually did use the backwards compatibility on my 360 as well. All this time I didn't realize I was doing it wrong.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Review: The Starship Damrey (3DS eShop):

Guild collections proof that experimental games don't have to be garbage as long as the right minds are in charge.


Boring as in you were expecting an action title? Can you clarify? I mean I wouldn't watch a Cronenberg or Lynch film if I was in the mood for a comedy.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Senior EA Employee Caught Out Criticising Wii ...:

Sweet christ. This seems like the feed was hacked by a ignorant fanboy. I didn't expect idiocy like this even from an EA employee.

As others have mentioned it's not that what this dork says is completely untrue it's about professionalism and how you say things when you represent a company, even if he's no big wig, when people see "Senior" in your title they think you are important.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Zelda Oracle Titles To Have an Initial Discoun...:

Don't tell Nintendo but I was going to get both of these even if there was no discount.

That's what was so great about them. It wasn't like other games that have 2 (or more) versions of the game that are basically the same title and just have very minor differences.

I disagree. I'd pay $20 for them. Other than the graphics not being what they can be today they have more content and better quality than lots of games today that cost twice as much.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Insomniac Not Working On Wii U, Considers It M...:

Not me. I play games for entertainment and like I've said before find it sad when people don't do the same. I am not Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Android, or whatever. I don't even have that much trouble when deciding which multi-platform title to get. I'll admit it is more often than not Nintendo, but sometimes it's just whichever console is getting the most use currently.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Insomniac Not Working On Wii U, Considers It M...:


Well I never said I know so much. In fact I am the first to admit I'm an idiot. I play on everything I can afford. Right now really the only thing I don't have is a PS3 and I don't play many games on my PC because it's garbage. And it has nothing to loyalties to any company. I just didn't have the money for it when it came out and I don't right now but will get one eventually. And once I can afford the other next gen consoles I'll get them too.

And just so you know I wasn't intending to offend you. Just saying that we can "hear" all kinds of stuff but even if a lot of people are saying it doesn't mean it's true. I sometimes eavesdrop on my son's Skype conversations with his friends and they can say the silliest things when my son talks about our Wii U or Nintendo in general.

There are some users on other sites, like the one I go to for Vita trophy guides, who I won't mention but anyone who goes there regularly would know, who are the biggest anti-Nintendo dorks and it just cracks me up when people feel like they are aligning theirself with a political party or a team or something and talk like they would die for a faceless company that doesn't know you exist. And I feel the same way about all fanboys. I don't understand why people go out of their way to not play awesome games.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Insomniac Not Working On Wii U, Considers It M...:


Well again you are saying something you "heard" when in reality it is most likely fanboy nonsense. Not everyone is going to like God of War but Santa Monica has obviously done something right because they have had many titles and are still fun. But to be fair would be to admit that Mario has been around for a bit longer than God of War so of course there are dozens of titles. Plus one is a mascot the other isn't. And if you think all the Mario games are rehashed that couldn't be further from the truth.

I'll just say this. If you can convince me the original, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3/Super Mario World, Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy, and New Super Mario Bros are all basically the same thing then color me impressed and I'll admit it without hesitation that I've been fooling myself all these years.



sweetiepiejonus commented on WWE 2K14 Set To Skip Wii U:

I get that people are upset that we aren't getting some of the 'current gen' games and that the general consensus is there is no 'killer app' yet. But that is going to change and then people will be buying up all the Wii U's that got sold off because it didn't have any 'good games.'

Sorry for the overuse of quotes and buzzwords. Just have to use them because I don't believe a single one of those statements.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Insomniac Not Working On Wii U, Considers It M...:


I'm with you. I'm sick of these guys coming out and running their mouths (and the 'fans' who support them and make up fake arguments that rational people never said). There is a reason these people have to follow up with a "claifying" message, and a reason that the people who know how to answer media questions properly don't. If nothing is on the horizon for now. Just say that. Why take a dig at Nintendo in the process? Especially when it is a usually classy guy. And I know that journalists love to take things out of context to create negative news but this doesn't seem like that is the case. You would think these big wigs would be required to take PR 101.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Insomniac Not Working On Wii U, Considers It M...:


It's not about what they don't say. It's about what they do say. I honestly can say I don't care if I go on a site and don't see a comment from a figurehead of a company singing the highest praises for Nintendo.

But when I see a smug remark or some pompous clown acting like Nintendo is a big joke and they aren't taken seriously how is that not unprofessional? How about be a professional and not comment?

You are basing your argument on a made-up assumption. I don't know anyone who says that and if they do they are annoying fanboys same as Microsoft and Sony trolls who don't need to be acknowledged.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Insomniac Not Working On Wii U, Considers It M...:

What a shame. I like Ratchet and Clank games. I don't usually do the whole boycott thing but just like with Deep Silver this company is now on my Ignore list. I feel bad more for Tech Land though, because they even came out saying they could make games on Wii U but Deep Silver had to pull the crap they did, so if they don't want to make Wii U games 'just because' after lying about a made up reason then I don't want to support them 'just because.'



sweetiepiejonus commented on Weirdness: Just How Much Cash Do You Need To B...:

Wasn't there some site that had exchange rates for game currencies? It might have been in a Game Informer but it was a while ago. Wonder what the rupee total would be.


That can be said for anything. The English language (whether it's European or American) is stupid. I can't recall how many times teaching my son to talk where I had to say something like 'Well I don't know why but in this case you say it this way. Just trust me.'

When I think about metric it just makes sense. The conversions are easier but since I grew up in America it would be a bit difficult to grasp now.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Review: Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Mo...:


I was wondering that too but when I saw the description on eShop it starts off stating "Test your puzzle solving skills in this spin-off of the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series."

So to anyone who is not into this title I guess it isn't really out of the question that a Mario vs. Donkey Kong 3 could materialize if enough people want it.

I personally love it and will buy any Mario and/vs. Donkey Kong titles no matter what. Whether it is Lemmings-style, platform puzzler hybrid or whatever they think of next.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Review: Super Mario World (Wii U eShop / Super...:


Oh I know. Just the same way that I agree there are some games that any changes would seem unnecessary. But you never know, sometimes you get one change in a sequel or remake where you go 'holy cow this would have been so awesome in the first' or something where it seemed like common sense.

By the way when you say "all new Mario games." Can you elaborate? Just curious how far back you are going. Do you mean the "New" series or are you talking like Galaxy as well? I haven't played the Wii U title or 3D Land yet but I thought the "New" series games have been good including the first DS game.



sweetiepiejonus commented on Club Nintendo Refunds Coins To Wii U Owners Wh...:


I see what you both are saying but I can agree with Idiot that Nintendo is a "true" gaming console as that is solely it's focus. Sony and Microsoft are trying to make a system that does everything. In fact that is Sony's tagline in their ads.

Now that isn't really a knock on Sony or Microsoft. If I could afford them I'd buy them all but Nintendo has always had the most affordable console so I always buy it first when having to make a decision on a new system. And they all have great games and I think it is stupid when people have this loyalty to a faceless company and feel like they have to rip on other people who like everything instead of joining their imaginary Sony/Microsoft/Nintendo team.


Thanks Debbie Downer!



sweetiepiejonus commented on Disney Interactive Suffers Financial Loss in Q1:

So this loss for them would probably be like me losing the $0.84 that must have fallen out of my pocket when I got in my car today. But I agree the Star Wars games most surely are going to allow them to have money fights once they get rolling.

I'm not a huge Star Wars fan and I've never got into many Star Wars games but I am intrigued to see what comes of this deal. Plus I'm excited to see how the new movies will be.
