undomiel commented on The Super Famicom is 25 Years Old:

I had a blast with both Super Mario World and F-Zero when I got my SNES for Christmas! I remember dreaming F-Zero it was just so fast.

It was an interesting dynamic around my school. Nobody got made fun of for the systems that they invested in. Had a friend with his Genesis and another guy with his TG-16. We all had fun going over and playing each others' systems. Though it did become clear pretty early that the TG-16 was inferior. I think there were slightly more SNES owners than Genesis owners in my area. I didn't know anyone with a Neo Geo.



undomiel commented on Video: The New Animal Crossing: amiibo Festiva...:

To be honest this video got me interested. Once I set aside my disappointment that there isn't a real AC game coming to the Wii U combined with the horrible sneak peak at E3, this looks very interesting. A bit more laid back board game with some Fortune Street notes. I'm definitely pulling an attitude 180 and am very interested in this game.



undomiel commented on Poll: The Tricky Issue of Retail Games as Down...:

I definitely prefer to get a physical copy if at all possible. I enjoy the box covers they put together and at least used to enjoy the physical manuals that came with them. Unfortunately that is extremely rare these days, but even then I would like to get the box. I also prefer having the physical media available for easy portig over to a different system if necessary. If my Wii U croaks and I need to purchase a new one I won't have to wait for things to download and don't have to worry about digital space management. Much easier for me to just shift things around on my shelves.



undomiel commented on Feature: Have You Played... ZombiU?:

I picked up this game earlier this year hoping to really like it but unfortunately I found that it just didn't fit my tastes. I could definitely see the potential in it though, for the right audience. It is a shame it didn't do better.



undomiel commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3 Digi...:

I probably jinxed it. I never watch these things but the one that I actually carve time out to watch is a dud. Sorry folks!

I'm excited for Star Fox, SMTxFE, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Yoshi's Woolly World and Mario Tennis. So that's not too bad for games to be excited about, but disappointing in terms of looking forward to actual surprising reveals. And my wife is really bummed about no Animal Crossing U.



undomiel commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Slashing Its Way to 3DS:

This could tempt me into a New 3DS. It is by far my most played game on the Wii U and I can see definite portable possibilities for it as well. Too bad it probably won't be released before my flight to Taiwan.



undomiel commented on Nintendo World Championships 2015 Qualifier De...:

It definitely sucks for the rest of the world but as far as the US itself I don't really see an issue with 8 locations. They're spread across the US so that doesn't seem too unreasonable to me. It could just be that I'm used to Quake 1/2/3 tournaments back in the day where you had to trek to the other side of the country to get to them, or with a handful of qualifiers scattered around that required only half-way across the country.



undomiel commented on Video: We Tackle The Dual-Stick vs. Motion Con...:

I did not enjoy the motion controls but the sensitivity was too high on the right stick so it really turned the game into a chore of fighting with the controls to get anything done. I definitely miss the keyboard and mouse days of the PC.



undomiel commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

I'm going to be wary of this one. I loved the Mario Party series but absolutely loathed number 9 due to the system of tossing everyone into a single vehicle. It really killed a lot of the fun for me and my wife. We preferred the ability to plan out your own moves around the board from the previous games. I'll probably give this one a shot at some point but will keep my receipt close for a potential return.



undomiel commented on Koei Tecmo Says Hyrule Warriors Has Breathed N...:

I'd be scared to see how many hours I've sunk into Hyrule Warriors and still just barely getting into the 2nd DLC. Please no Mario Warriors, it totally doesn't fit but I would love more DLC for Hyrule Warriors. Mixing it up a bit with Metroid Warriors could be interesting though. Or if we branch beyond Nintendo IP then Shin Megami Tensei warriors would be very interesting.



undomiel commented on Feature: Five Remastered Games We'd Love to Pl...:

Definitely not interested in The Last Story. I was extremely disappointed in the way it dashed my hopes for it on the Wii. Eternal Darkness is my pick here as I've not played it. Definitely more interested in new games than ports of console games. If we have to venture into the remake category then I think it would be more interesting to reach back to some N64 games and give them an update. Ogre Battle 64 for instance I would love to have available on the go or the Castlevania games.
