tanasten commented on Nintendo Offers Humble Thanks For Condolences ...:

Still heartbroken too. My family and friends hardly can understand how a guy of 36 years old cried and can't hardly talk about Iwata without droping a few tears, but my feeling tells to me that Iwata was so close to me.

I will miss him a lot. For me this is a post Iwata era that were starting, a Nintendo that will hurt a bit too.



tanasten commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

Those are not great games to look forward. Some of them are, of course, Xenoblade and Zelda, yoshi is cute too, and maybe Devil's Third. Star Fox experiment look meh like Command did time ago, and there's nothing more to care for WiiU.

I got PS4 and I know what to expect on the future: Shenmue III, Final Fantasy VII remake, Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts III, Horizon, Last Guardian, Street Fighter V, Dragon Quest Heroes, One Piece Pirate Warriors, Tales of Berseria... even Uncharted looks awesome. But these are not the only ones... there are tens of great games coming to that system.

Nintendo give us nothing to look forward compared to that list of games. And I hope that Nintendo reall y has many games for WiiU in development, because if they left the WiiU with nothing more to come, this will be the end of the company.

Time ago, they talked to the investors that it was the moment for them to build loyalty with their players. How are they going to do that? The only great thing that made me love more Nintendo lately has been Splatoon. We need more games, we need to keep great franchises coming back from time to time (in the expected way, not the Federation fiasco), but we also need new things!

I must add, that I seriously belieg that the strategy of showing only games that are coming in the close months is a fail. People bought the PS4 on launch because they trusted on the company, they knew that the company will deliver with great games until the end of the gen like they did with Last of Us. That's why they are on the winning road.

Players over the world didn't cared of the WiiU because they knew that it was going to be another Wii, with gimmicks, underpowered and no third party support. Casual players that felt under the wii atraction went years ago to facebook and mobile, and are used now to free to plays. SO NINTENDO RELIES ONLY ON TRUE FANS. IF THEY FAIL TO GIVE US WHAT WE WANT, IF THEY DON'T DELIVER TO US, IF THEY LEFT US WITHOUT GREAT GAMES, THEY'RE DEAD, BECAUSE NO ONE WILL TRUST ON NINTENDO FOR THE NX.



tanasten commented on Matters Of Import: Fire Emblem (Sort Of) Exist...:

@Damo @aaronsullivan I know the history and background. These guys we're unknow people that formed at Nintendo when they were hired for R&D1 to work under Gumpei Yokoi. They learned working at Nintendo and progressed in the company. Kazuo Kaga was asigned as a assistant after doing maps on Famicon Wars, and he got the honor to be the producer on the second game (which probably is on of the worst Fire Emblem games)

He followed being the Producer of the series until Thraccia 776 and he left Nintendo, to fund a their own company and try to get money from the PlayStation userbase ripping Fire Emblem, which was not the result of Kazuo's work only, but many other people at Nintendo!

@Tsurii897 these cases are different. they going after games that are no more being developed. They're going after an style of game, not ripping the original game like Tear Ring Saga did. Even the original name Emblem Saga was a clear rip off.



tanasten commented on Weirdness: eBay Trolls amiibo Fans With Gold M...:

I pass. Not going after Amiibos any more. I've been looking for Amiibos on Madrid Capital and closer cities, and I didn't saw more than half of them. I HAD ENOUGH.

They're simply not going to get my money with Amiibos.



tanasten commented on Review: Ice Cream Surfer (Wii U eShop):

I'm liking the game. For me it's not as bad as put into the review. I'm having fun with it. Of course, is not great and even can't compare with Konami classics (so many lessons to learn from these...), however, for casual gaming the game is not that bad.



tanasten commented on Review: Wii Sports Club: Baseball + Boxing (Wi...:

Nintendo really loved the Wii Sports. They play worse than the originals... and the online sucks. They shold be very embarrased with this and fix these games ASAP. The IP was strong enough and look at huw much they lasted to put the Club to the 5 original games and they all play far worse... it's incredible.

Than God I still own the original games...
Please watch the profanity — TBD



tanasten commented on Koichi Hayashida Explains Absence of NES Remix...:

Nintendo loved up things really bad this gen with clumsy hardware. I hope they learn definitively the lesson for the next gen. They're going to suffer by low sales the years to come due to this.
Please watch the profanity — TBD



tanasten commented on Video: What Could The Legend Of Zelda: Skyward...:

BTW, what would be really cool is if the WiiU could play all Wii Games upcaled to 1080p. I mean, not just upscaling, but aplaying the 1080p output from the game, just like some emulators. Nintendo is missing a big opportunity there.



tanasten commented on Soapbox: Ignoring The Objectification Of Women...:

"Should we boycott Senran Kagura Burst's balloon-breasted characters?"

Loving no. Love playing fantasy games with fantasy girls. We should ban every game that involves war and different races as the enemy before that.
Please watch the profanity — TBD



tanasten commented on Soapbox: Nintendo Soundtracks - Where Are They?:

They should have a music channel on their consoles, with a shared account between WiiU and 3DS, and then sell all their music and third parties music. I would buy almost every soundtrack they release. I heard their music almost daily on my workplace.

Edit: the shared should include CV games and more of course...



tanasten commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's 3DS and Wii U Strate...:

Nintendo need to boost game production, and they have a lot of improve margin on the WiiU software, from OS to games, being open to other OS and apps.

WiiU can't be only a gaming machine where you can't neither navigate throught the web due to flash incompatibilities or it's not good that we can't use google docs. Makes no sense at what type of market was Nintendo trying to catter (the tablet market)



tanasten commented on Nintendo Left Online Out Of Super Mario 3D Wor...:




This is just out of place. Where living in a society connected 24/7 via mobile phone; we're all the day exchanging videos, music and whatever feeling on our minds. We do not have that much time to meet people everyday, in fact, we meet in family few times in a year. Only you're a father or a mother with childs at home you'll be playing together... and that's why Nintendo is great to them, but not rest of the people.

They abandoned everyone with the DS and the Wii, not continuing the legacy without hardware revisions and continue giving content that the people likes from yours products. The model of 5 years console is obsolete and leaving your 100 hundred million families abandoned is never a good idea. And now they have to deal with the consequences...



tanasten commented on WayForward and Ubisoft Releasing The Smurfs 2 ...:

It's Wayforward. Will be not that bad after all. Of course, the license is not for me but hey, we're talking about Nintendo platforms and this suits with the family appeal of the brand.

At least, I'm happy to see Wayforward with so many contracted projects. The deserve it



tanasten commented on No Circle Pad Pro In Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moo...:

I still remember the main idea behind the original Luigi's Mansion was to educate to the second analog stick. Such a lame. Nintendo will be punished severely someday. Lots of buyers are still waiting for the complete 3DS, you know, the complete with the second analog!



tanasten commented on Guide: Transferring Your Monster Hunter 3 Ulti...:

@Funny_moblin. As far as you copy the files on your brother wiiu's profile and you kepps your's on your profile, you'll have no problems.

If you got both files on the 3DS, both will be copied on each profile. Then, you can delete the ones you don't use on the WiiU, and you'll tranferlater on to the 3DS the files for you or your brother. You can't keep both profiles syncronized on the 3DS, you'll need to copy your profile whenever it's your turn



tanasten commented on Guide: Transferring Your Monster Hunter 3 Ulti...:

Yay, GOOD NEWS MATES. I checked and found that the file transfer only affects the profile you used on the WiiU during the transfer. So I and my wife have been able to play together in local wireless, each with our profiles/save data, and after finishing I did transfered my save file back to the WiiU and her files were fine, with the items earned during our multiplayer game

So the data transfer only affects to the active profile on the WiiU. Not bad then



tanasten commented on Guide: Transferring Your Monster Hunter 3 Ulti...:

@Klautrec. That's what I understood from the article and the comments. I also tried to do a copy from the file of the player profile, but THEY DON'T ALLOW NEITHER TO COPY THE SAVE DATA OF A PROFILE. In fact, you have to copy the WHOLE game data, including the game itself if downloaded from the eShop, the updates and the profiles' data, which are more than 6 GB.

How in the world Nintendo doesn't allow to copy just the save files!? Tonight I'll test the local multiplayer, and if the progress of one player gets lost, I'll be asking the money back at least. We're paying more tha 100€ to play local multiplayer and this looks absolutely horrible, to sell away the WiiU and nit buy a Nintendo system evermore.



tanasten commented on Guide: Transferring Your Monster Hunter 3 Ulti...:

I was planning to use the 3DS version to play along the WiiU version for local multiplayer. If the save file from the 3DS OVERWRITES the save file from the WiiU, then the progress made from the player on the WiiU will be lost even it's from a different profile?

That's just horrible...



tanasten commented on Review: Onslaught (WiiWare):

Wow! Bought this game day one in europe and had been playing each day since them! It´s really a blast to play, at least for me playing the first game at hard. Been like 10 hours playing if no more in single and online and still on stage 8

I love the aiming and the strategy of the yame, also the fast paced action!

Don´t like how hard is to dash for me and no Wiispeak support, but the rest of the game is wonderful! 8/10 for me!
