thaantman commented on Interview: 13AM Games on Getting Up to Speed W...:

I definitely can't wait for this to come out. I've had so much fun playing the demo, I've had the chance to play it with 5 other friends and they all love it. 1 friend always ask me hey" did that running game come out yet?" WiiU is definitely the party animal system. I current play smash bros, sports ball, and the runbow demo with a group of friends and they never disappoint. Just recently grabbed rayman legends from the ubisoft sale in the eshop also looking to add splatoon and mk8 to my list of multiplayer games to get. But the indies has definitely been my focal point with my wiiU with so many fresh experiences and some that feel like retro throwbacks and there much easier on the pockets while I wait for full priced retail games to drop in price.



thaantman commented on Talking Point: Wii U Gamers Have Been Treated ...:

I for one love my wiiU, despite the absence of major 3rd party support. The wiiU as have been mentioned was made to be unique but mostly just got ports of games that already had bargain prices elsewhere And were being sold at a premium price. If we were going to get ports at least bring us new games that's coming out the same time as everything else then people could actually have the wiiU as an option as to what system they would buy the game for. The indies have really stepped up and been the 3rd party support for wiiU. We gotten multiplatform indie releases, we got games being ported from studios like curve studios and we got awesome exclusives that's here and on the way that takes advantage of the wiiU abilities like affordable space adventures & runbow and hopefully they get the support they deserve. I just wish the small amount of major 3rd parties we have step it up, capcom could make a new tatsunoko vs capcom and also port over marvel vs capcom 3. Sega need to make a really great sonic exclusive like sonic colors or generations. Bandai needs to make pokken on wiiU. All we need is just a fell triple A 3rd party exclusives to help fill in the gap.



thaantman commented on Ronimo Games Explains Pricing for Swords & Sol...:

I Definitely think there's a place for premium indie titles on the eshop. I think nintendo should make a premium indie section for games $15 and up so they can stand apart and not get lost in the shuffle. I do also think some sort of loyalty program would be great



thaantman commented on Talking Point: Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Br...:

I would love the idea of constant DLC opposed to having a sequel. Thats basically what Project M has done with smash bros brawl and has really extended the life cycle of the game with new content that makes it feels fresh again. I definitely think Nintendo should go that route, it easier to give a car a new coat of paint than to build 1 from scratch.



thaantman commented on Video: Super Mario 64 Leaps Onto Wii U Virtual...:

I can definitely understand why people want to see n64 and Ds virtual console on 3ds, but the 3ds is already backwards compatible with ds games so I don't see that as being necessary. I think GameCube vc will be revealed at E3 the wiiU is now capable of playing every past Nintendo home console games except gamecube and especially with having a GameCube adapter it only make sense for GameCube games to come sooner then later.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (North America):

I already have olliolli on ps3 but strongly considering getting it again I think the game is better suited for the gamepad & 3ds. And I don't have a vita so cant take advantage of crossplay. I highly recommend this game. Also tengami been on my wishlist for sometime now. They forgot to mention the wayforward sales this week too. Probably get both might switch force games on wiiU. Imma hold of on mario vs donkey Kong for a bit I thought the release price was $10



thaantman commented on OlliOlli Arrives on Wii U and 3DS Next Week, C...:

I got this on sale for my ps3 for only $3 and I may still get this day1. This game is awesome and I would not only love to be able to play this on the gamepad and on the go on my 3ds, but simply just to support curve studios for porting so many awesome games on the eshop.



thaantman commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:

So mad I got super metriod a couple of days ago for 250 coins and I was going to buy it for wiiU for $1.50 with the snes discount they give you for already owning it on the wii. But they have super metriod for 200 coins in the wiiu section. And if I knew wonderful 101 would be an option I would had just saved my 600 coins for that smh I should had been patient.



thaantman commented on Video: 90's Arcade Racer Is Still Alive, And H...:

We need more quality racing games on wiiU. Of course we have the superb mario kart 8, we also have need for speed most wanted & sonic and sega allstar racing but that's it besides a few eshop racers that are mediocre @ best. This looks to play similar to need for speed nitro which was my favorite racer on wii. This & fast racing neo are both on my radar.



thaantman commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

I loved metroid other m and feel like that game would look awesome on the gamepad. I never played epic yarn, okami, or little kings story but I've wanted to so I would like to see those games. I hope we sonic colors, de blob, geometry wars galaxies, tatsunoko vs capcom and I really enjoyed some of EA wii games like need for speed nitro, nba jam, ssx blur & boom blox but not sure if will see them on wiiu considering the current relationship with them.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd January (North America):

Maybe punchout. Midnight looks like a mix of nightsky & ping 1.5+ probably wait on a review for that 1 will also keep my eye on breezeblox if its as amazing as edge. And nintendolife didn't mention it but the throwback sale is continuing this week with different discounts so waiting to see what's goes onsale



thaantman commented on Wii U Enjoyed Its Best Ever Month of US Sales ...:

@umegames and those are just the games we know about. I'm sure will get some more surprise directs & reveals @ E3. But I love my wiiU and I havent even scratched the surface yet. My only retail games are smash wiiu & windwaker. I've been living in the eshop supporting these awesome indie developers that has stepped up with the lack of major 3rd party games. In the past 2months I brought shovel knight, steam world dig, stick it to the man, toki tori, edge, rush, nano assault, art of balance, x type+, abyss, armillo, paper monsters recut, puddle, kung fu rabbit, duck tales remastered, 99 moves, ping 1.5+, and just got teslagrad & chasing Aurora apart of the indie promotion. And theres still a bunch more I have in my wish list. And that list don't even include retail titles like Mario kart 8, wonderful 101, hyrule warriors, super Mario 3ds world etc. I'm exhausted, wiiU have really revitalize my love for gaming.



thaantman commented on Video: Does Super Mario Galaxy 2 On Wii U Offe...:

I definitely think nintendo should do an update for gamepad controls if the game wasn't heavy on motion controls. The 1st two prime games were on gamecube so they could revert back to dual analog for the trilogy. Also in mario galaxy you only waggled the controller to do the spin move that could be assigned to a button or even just shaking the gamepad itself it does have motion control on the pad.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 15th January (Europe):

I hope teslagrad is on sale in the north America update wanted that game since day 1. May get chasing Aurora & I already have runner 2 on my ps3 but for that price I may double dip to be able to play that on my gamepad with some headphones



thaantman commented on Update For Arrow Time U Improves Overall Game ...:

@xenohorizon I really appreciate your honesty and hope you guys can learn from your mistakes and ultimately make better games for us so its more profit for you. And I do almost always trust nintendo life's reviews I've been using this site since it was Wiiware world to keep an eye on the nintendo indie scene. I've really been supporting the eshop big time because there are quite a few gems and some at awesome budget prices. I'll keep my eye on any future games from xenohorizon and hope you guys become the type of develops that can make gems standout in a trash heap.



thaantman commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

Great list of games and definitely will keep a look out on them. I just got my Wii u around September last year and smash bros & wind waker are the only retail games I've purchased. I've really been invested on the indie scene on Wii u especially with the awesome eshop sales that we just had. Armillo, steamworld dig, shovel knight, duck tales, paper monsters recut, toki tori, edge, rush, x type +, ping 1.5+, nano assault, art of balance, and stick it to the man so imma be pretty busy for awhile. Probably hit up the back catalog of a few Wii u games as they drop in price, keep my eye on some new Indies and maybe just make a 1 or 2 big purchases this year, I'm thinking splatoon and maybe Mario maker. Hope we get metroid this year on either Wii u or 3ds



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (North America):

Nintendo need to get crossplay for games like shovel knight I really could decide between the 3ds version or Wii U. I ultimately decided on Wii U. Used my $5 from the ddp so ultimately only paid $5 & some change for shovel knight.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 25th December (North America):

Grab some great deals the past 2weeks. Ping 1.5+, nano assault, steamworld dig, rush, toki tori & stick it to the man. Have a lot of indie titles to hold me over for a bit. Still considering art of balance I wish the sale was a little cheaper. And not quite sure what I'm going to get with my $5 promotion points maybe cosmophony or on the 3sd there's liberation maiden, chain blaster or attack of the Friday monsters. So much to choose from.



thaantman commented on Crunchyroll Arrives on Wii U as a Free App in ...:

This was an unexpected surprise to say the least. I use crunchy roll on my ps3, but my 32in flat screen that I have had for a good while now went out so I don't play any of my games or watch anything in my room to often because my temporary replacement tv is embarrassingly small and it would be near impossible to read the English subtitles. So being able to watch some anime on the gamepad for the time being is awesome.



thaantman commented on Reminder: The Nintendo Network Premium Promoti...:

I really wish they keep this offer, I've purchased more digital games because of it. I actually brought a digital copy of smash Wii U just so I could get something extra off the eshop. Hopefully we get some more good eshop sales tomorrow only 136pts away from a $5 code.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 18th December (North America):

Think I'll grab megaman 7, steamworld dig (just not sure if I should grab it for wii u or 3ds) ping 1.5 plus is a game ive had my eye on and for $2 the price is right. And I would grab both art of balance & nano assault if these were a little cheaper I'll get 1 or the other.



thaantman commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:

I don't find little mac to be difficult to beat maybe its just me. I have a friend that main him and played plenty of online and I win 90% of the time with almost any character I use. His attacks are fast & powerful but still avoidable. His air game is what kills him, its easy to get little mac off the stage around 60 to 70 percent so if you can just endure his onslaught he shouldn't be a problem. I actually find rosalina mains to be more of an issue.



thaantman commented on Nintendo Highlights Huge Indie Line-up for Win...:

While I do wish nintendo would get more major 3rd party support i kinda don't mind too much having 1st party nintendo games and a slew of top notch indie games I'm completely satified there so many indie games already out I still been meaning to grab. Grabbing a handfull of great indie games for $60 just sounds more attractive then buying some of these 3rd title that probably watered down compared to other consoles and expect to pay the same price.



thaantman commented on Polychromatic Extravaganza de Blob Will Be Mak...:

Loved both de blobs for different reasons I think I like the 1st one a little more for its laid back feel to it. Didn't finish the 2nd 1 but I loved the hilarious cut scenes and the story was much deeper. Looking forward to a sequel or wouldn't even mind a remake with hd up grade and sum gamepad support.



thaantman commented on Review: Cosmophony (Wii U eShop):

This in someways reminds me of the first bit trip games on wiiware. Besides runner most of the bit trip games only had 3 stages and they were punishing experiences to say the least but enjoyable as well especially if you were able to actually beat a stage you certainly felt a strong sense of accomplishment. That's what I'm expecting from this game so imma give a go even if its a chance I'll never beat it for only $4 I've certainly have put out more for games that I still remain stuck on.



thaantman commented on Review: Arrow Time U (Wii U eShop):

Nintendo should really put a section on the eshop for all the critically acclaimed indirect games. Because there's are actually a few good quality budget games and they deserve their spot like instead of being loss in the shuffle with crap like this.

thaantman commented on Proun+ is Coming Soon to a 3DS Near You:

I'll definitely keep this on my radar. I didn't care for the 1st person view in speed so that alone makes this game somewhat interesting to me. The music sorta reminds me of de blob and I like the art style too. If this release @ a budget price like speed then I'm all over this.



thaantman commented on Bigger Stages, Dual-Plane Battles and Danger Z...:

8 player smash officially sold this game for me. I mean I was going to get this no matter what but I was gonna hold off getting this day1 perhaps wait to December since this and pkmn ORAS comes out the same day. I'd figure smash 3ds can hold me over, but my goodness 8 players @ once. If they confirm 4 on 4 team battle I will cry tears of joy lol



thaantman commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd October (North America):

Smart that Nintendo didn't release any wiiU eshop games like stealth 2 since both bayonetta games & just dance came out to give attention to these releases. So next week you can just fill the gap with download releases



thaantman commented on Review: Ninja Battle Heroes (3DS eShop):

And my eshop want list grows more. With this being on the cheap side may get this sooner than later. But man still need azure strikers gunvolt while mighty gunvolt is still a free add on, and on the wiiU eshop teslagrad, paper monsters, art of balance, stealth inc 2, still waiting for reviews for ballpoint universe and ping 1.5+



thaantman commented on Pokémon X & Y Won't Be Patched to Accommodate...:

I wouldn't say it would make X & Y obsolete. For 1 we have to trade diancie over from X & Y if we want mega diancie so trading still seem to be possible. You'll prolly just won't be able to trade a pokemon from ORAS if its holding an unfamiliar mega stone. But we don't know all the pokemon that's available to be caught so we can trade pokemon from X & Y to ORAS such as gen 6 pokemon.



thaantman commented on Guide: How to Catch a Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:

Already have a trainer club account, have no idea when or why I created it perhaps it had something to do with me having pokemon X. Not sure if I'm opted in for emails or not and I can't get into my account despite reseting my password and asking for my user name. So really hoping I'm already opted in for emails.
