Proud owner of Wii U, 3DS and a tabby cat

tysonfury commented on Nintendo Confirms GameCube Controller Adapter ...:
Ha! I knew it! So the gamecube controller can be used retroactively in Wii mode.
So no reason why they can't map the gamepad buttons onto Wii classic controller and VC games....
tysonfury commented on Wii U System Update 5.2.0 Brings Folders, New ...:
Good. Now can we have, please1. A photo-video channel. You've no idea. This would entertain families for days, and its the perfect use of the gamepad. Who doesn't want to draw a moustache on grandma and post it to facebook?2. Wii games launching straight from the Wii U menu3. Gamepad button functionality in Wii mode (2 years and still I can't play ocarina of time on the gamepad... you owe us this Nintendo)4. More stability. I don't think my Wii U is stable enough
Given up praying for Tvii to come to Europe, no one will even want it now by the time it arrives (kind of like Ubisoft games)
tysonfury commented on Wii U Version of Watch Dogs to Miss Out on DLC:
Really, who cares anymore?
tysonfury commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:
I don't get it. Wii U is outselling XBone by thousands a week according to the controversial site vgchartz - and from a variety of sources its install base is currently 7m to XBones 5m and P24s 10m..
The argument that Wii U is not selling DOES NOT WASH
There must be another reason why so many 3rd parties are shying away, it must be something Nintendo themselves are doing or not doing...
tysonfury commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:
Good to see easy-to-understand coloured buttons coming back to nintendo hardware - playing SM3DW with my dad at christmas was difficult, telling him to press the 'A' button and he needed his reading glasses to tell which one it was...
tysonfury commented on Ultimate NES Remix Coming To 3DS This November:
it'll be interesting to see if the 3DS version interacts with the Wii U version, if you own both copies. Well we can dream can't we...!?
tysonfury commented on Nintendo's Unity Presentation Confirms Critica...:
It's an interesting challenge to see how Nintendo can get more women to play games. Why do boys play but girls don't? The % divide is incredible..
tysonfury commented on Minor Web Miiverse Update Allows You to Show O...:
Miiverse is still toooo sloooooow, so is eshop. It really puts me off posting or even checking my notifications. It's still browser based, why the web elements couldn't be integrated into a static OS I don't know - for example, Miiverse notifications in games like SM3DW, or, day I say it, Xbox 360's OS....
tysonfury commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:
Incredible news!!!!!!! This is a great move by Nintendo and will turn Amiibo into a force to be reckoned with..And I hope Wii Coconut Mall is one of the DLC classic tracks..
I wonder will online players be able to play DLC tracks without buying first..?
tysonfury commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:
sigh... I despair at humanity
tysonfury commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:
Great point - I think Wii U will be a second console for most people. Of course it will need to hit $250/£200 first.
I think this a happy future for Nintendo - their systems will always provide unique experiences from 1st and 2nd parties and indies. Big franchises will always split the difference on Xbone and PS4 and their successors. Nintendo is a small company that can sell at a low cost and still make large profits - I don't mind, long may this continue!
tysonfury commented on Activision Confirms That Call of Duty: Advance...:
If you think about it, it makes sense that many third parties aren't supporting nintendo hardware as a general rule. Nintendo is a software developer. Consistent the best and most successful games company in history, and the primary competitor for EA, Activision, Ubisoft etc..
In the 80s, NES was the only game in town - if you were a software developer you had to go to them or maybe Atari, or Sega, who also developed their own software
Now there's Sony and Microsoft who mostly make phones, TVs and PCs (not including Windows), they're not trying to sell their own games. Meanwhile some software developers are bigger and richer than Nintendo and don't have to go begging to them to be allowed to distribute their games.
Except for cases like the Wii or the 3DS, where the platforms' runaway successes are irresistible cash cows to developers:WHY WOULD ANY SOFTWARE COMPANY SUPPORT A PLATFORM THAT PROMOTES THEIR BIGGEST RIVAL!!?
Let's get used to the fact that nintendo systems sell nintendo games, and the gaps will be filled by indies, which nintendo is fully supporting, and 2nd parties (there are more and more of them recently)
That's not a bad deal.
tysonfury commented on Watch Dogs Will be the Only "Mature" Ubisoft G...:
Another point worth making - Assassins Creed has been a long established franchise on xbox and PS (starting with the woeful first game). Its reputation with gamers has been built up over time. Ubisoft can't honestly expect to introduce a new franchise to a whole new market in two years and expect it to sell the same numbers. This sounds like an excuse to me.
Mass Effect 3 on Wii U didn't sell because it was the only version of the game where players couldn't bring their previous save games from ME 1&2. For a game that's meant to be played as a trilogy, and where decisions you make influence the outcome in the sequels, it was a lazy and fatal error.
That's disappointing, I had never played an Assassins Creed game until I got AC3 on the Wii U, and am totally hooked. Loved it, and AC4, and will now probably have to buy a PS4 just to play ACU.
He's missing the opportunity to introduce their most popular franchises to new audiences. Repeat: I HAD NO INTEREST IN AC UNTIL IT CAME TO WII U!!
tysonfury commented on Nintendo Download: 21st August (Europe):
I hope all these Mega Man releases are part of a deal that Nintendo has signed with Capcom, and in return Capcom will become an official 2nd-party developer, do all the legwork of porting Nintendo and third party VC titles from now on, and release HD Wii U exclusive remakes of all the Resident Evils, Street Fighters and Monster Hunter games
tysonfury commented on Super Mario Kart Speeds Onto the North America...:
We do have Yoshi's Island on the GBA and it used the Super FX chip. And they were able to emulate the custom chips of the N64 (which my macbook still struggles with). I don't know the exact technology but it should fit that it's possible with some effort. Though I agree that Nintendo probably didn't see it as worthwhile.
"What's taking you so long, Fox!?"
(speaking of which, were the hell is VC Starfox?)
tysonfury commented on Mario Kart 8 Update & DLC Scheduled for 27th A...:
Was hoping for more editing options in the highlight reels - like trim and crop tools, upload in slo-mo and save to the SD card slot - just so we can create our own 'Luigi Death Stare' moments!
tysonfury commented on Wii U System Update 5.1.1 is Now Available:
I've given up on Tvii for Europe now, like most people..
tysonfury commented on Sainsbury's Reduces Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle ...:
I think they should extend the free game offer to people who buy and register a new Wii U
£199 with 2 free games sounds fair to me
tysonfury commented on Ocarina Of Time Began Life As A Remake Of Zeld...:
I didn't even know that! My mind explose!
Don't be offended, I'm only talking to the select few Ocarina haters in the world
I think the people who hate Ocarina (I can't believe I just typed that sentence, but they exist..) are those who didn't play it when it first came out in 1998. At the time it was groundbreaking, in fact earth shattering (you can play an ocarina?? with buttons!?) but it has of course been surpassed by its 3D sequels..
tysonfury commented on Wii Sports Club Update Arrives, Probably Doesn...:
Wasn't convinced when just was just Tennis & Golf, but now that all 5 sports are out I actually think this a great game. Boxing is much more fun than some reviewers are giving credit for, and Baseball is excellent.
Hope they release some more sports soon, and maybe some gamepad-centered ones
tysonfury commented on Sony: PS4 Is "Welcoming Back" Wii Owners Who S...:
To be honest I'm tempted buy a PS4 just to play Assassins Creed Unity.
tysonfury commented on Review: Wii Sports Club (Wii U):
I'd rather see a new Wii Sports collection that just uses the gamepad, I don't think this HD throwback to 2006 is going to win over any new believers
My suggestion: Wii Sports Touch5 new sports,
Maybe have it as DLC or something. Or while we're at it, where is Pilotwings for the Wii U?
tysonfury commented on Nintendo Download: 17th July (Europe):
more bloody kirby... give us some Square RPGs. Or Starfox.
tysonfury commented on Nintendo Open To Minecraft on Wii U and 3DS, a...:
Yaya! Now give us Sim City for the Wii U as an HD version of the Japan-only Sim City 64.
tysonfury commented on Nintendo Executive Suggests Wii U is at a "Tip...:
Especially since they're gonna make a ton of money out of Amiibo..
He says that he's been reading comments online, and users will find it 'hard to resist'..I think that points towards a price cut just before Christmas.What do you think?
tysonfury commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms That Dual GamePad Su...:
I'd like to see a Wii U mini with a smaller 3ds-sized gamepad. I think the initial clunkinness of the gamepad puts some people off.
tysonfury commented on Nintendo TVii Update Adds New Features and Imp...:
tysonfury commented on Nintendo Needs To Cut Wii U Cost To Capitalise...:
I think he means "fewer" games
tysonfury commented on Nintendo 64 Titles Heading to the Wii U Virtua...:
That would be a great idea - and not unlikely since they did had 'pixel smoothing' for GBA games - 1080 upscaling would be amazing
tysonfury commented on Don't Worry, Nintendo Hasn't Forgotten About T...:
Any/all of the Square SNES RPGs would keep me happy for now, they've been out in Japan for a year
tysonfury commented on Miyamoto Confirms Next Wii U System Update Is ...:
and then we're all done!
tysonfury commented on Bayonetta Download Code Included With Retail a...:
It was quite funny this morning listening to people complain about the FREE brain training download. Sigh...
Why are so many people STILL complaining about the download size and Wii U's 32GB storage?
Why on earth have you not just got one of these:
and one of these?
tysonfury commented on E3 2014: Quickfire Shigeru Miyamoto Video Focu...:
That sounds like a great idea - maybe release some NFC power rangers too, or maybe it Amiibo compatible. I'd buy it!
Starfox will be totally brilliant, it's exactly what we've been waiting for. I hope it uses the gamepad mic and camera for in game voice chat too.
tysonfury commented on Satoru Iwata Won't Attend E3 For Health-Relate...:
If he's been advised not to fly long haul, it's likely a case of high blood pressure - which is not surprising considering!
Get well soon Iwata-san.
LOL. Beat me to it!
tysonfury commented on You're Not Seeing Things, There's A New SNES T...:
Cool, maybe we'll see it on the virtual console in 20 years!
tysonfury commented on Wii Sports Club Baseball and Boxing Arrive on ...:
Hope we get a Wii U + Wii Sports club bundle now, with a wii remote for around £199, just like in Japan.
"U turn", I love it!
tysonfury commented on Brain Training / Brain Age Makes DS Début on ...:
The configuration makes sense once you realise many thought the 2DS a gaming 'tablet' - think Nintendo are just trying to get people to think about the gamepad in different ways (ie. 'hold it sideways')
tysonfury commented on Wii U System Update 5.0.0 Now Live, Adds Quick...:
Was really hoping for a photo/video app like on the original Wii, with screen capture and youtube uploading. Maybe next time.
tysonfury commented on Nintendo Japan Announces Plans for YouTube Aff...:
Well I'm a youtube affiliate with a music video site I run - it's really easy to do - and sites like Let's Play and all the others who have lots of views will be able to apply easily, get accepted hopefully, and get a legitimate share of the profits. I think that's win-win.
99% of you do not know what you're talking about.
Twitch feeds have adverts at the beginning, I don't see the controversy here at all. It's a good thing that Nintendo are allowing people to upload their content at all rather than blocking it, and of course they have the right to tag their intellectual property for profit - they created it - the tag is about so much more than ad revenue by the way, but about claiming ownership of the owners work.
The ads that appear will most likely be for other nintendo games anyway. As if that's not enough, an affiliate programme is being announced to SHARE BACK THE PROFITS with the uploader. So who's complaining?
I only hope this is being announced because there's going to more Youtube integration into Wii U and 3DS games!
