wayward commented on 40 Percent Blasted Off The Price Of Classic St...:

Finally, a good price! I had given up hope on ever getting this game; $30 for a remake was just too high for me to justify with all the other great games that have been coming out. Now I can double down on my hopes of star fox 64 eventually going on sale as well.

wayward commented on Talking Point: The Time Is Right For A Nintend...:

Great points by all the skeptics in here. Nintendo does, indeed, have a long history of changing their business and has only been invested in video games for the last 30 years, but they would not stand a chance in any stretch of the imagination in the phone market.

There is nothing new or unique that can be done in mobile that would wouldn't be substantially cost prohobitive. The patent portfolio held by rival phone makers alone would immediately require a team of lawyers; Nintendo would also have to reach out and ink deals with service carriers, unless the author of this article thinks they should also build their own mobile towers across the globe. It would be a massive undertaking with infinitely more risk than potential reward. And with how conservative the Big N has been with its momey, I'm glad they continue to eschew this market.

wayward commented on Feature: How We'd Like to See amiibo Used in C...:

@brandonbwii Exactly what I was thinking. It's strange that people think of only having room for one set of data means that the amiibo are locked from doing anything substantial in multiple games.

The data could be consistent across multiple games. The amiibo could offer better assistance as a cpu ally or a larger challenge as an opponent in varying genres, depending on their level. Anything that has multiplayer can use the Smash save data for similar purpose.

The true question is, how willing are Nintendo to put all of these extra characters in their games? It could, again, be template data that they write once and use in all of their future titles. Post-patching outfits and rewards should not exemplify their plans going forward if they develop from here on out with amiibo in mind.

Got this on the u, and can't wait to revisit it when yacht club can start working on those content updates. If they were able to offer some sort of cross-platform discount, I'd get the 3ds version as well.

wayward commented on Rumour: Has Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem B...:

I'm in the crowd who are fans of Fire Emblem, but not Shin Megami Tensai. As such, and with how I personally felt Radiant Dawn was a letdown, my hype for this game is nil. I really enjoyed Path of Radiance, but other than that wouldn't mind if Fire Emblem stayed on handhelds from here on out.

Atlus has been letting me down on a regular basis this entire generation, to the point that I'm skeptical about even Etrian Odyssey V. So, I wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo has had a hard time working with them and getting a crossover up to their quality standards. 4chan is a complete toilet though and it's disheartening to see it's backed up sewage spill into this site.

wayward commented on Suda51 Explains The Origins Of No More Heroes ...:

This series was great, it's a shame the games never took off in sales on the Wii. Good to hear that Suda is interested in resurrecting the franchise at some point though... Even if that throws a wrench in my dream for an F-Zero game developed by Grasshopper in the vein of No More Heroes.

A white gamecube controller?! Nintendo just keeps sucking money out of me with this game. The gc adapter, lan adapter, amiibo, and now I'm going to have to import one of those beauties because I doubt they'll wash up on this side of the Pacific.

wayward commented on Review: Tengami (Wii U eShop):

It is indeed disappointing that this game doesn't utilize motion controls, thanks for addressing it in the review. Going to add this to my wish list until I get some discounted eshop cards on Black Friday.

wayward commented on Pokémon Star Pikachu Is Getting His Own GameC...:

This would be great for playing wii games with. I'm not a fan of the shoulder buttons, but they are the closest to acceptable out of all the faux gamecube controllers I've seen so far. I hope this comes to the States.

wayward commented on Expect To See More Spin-Off Titles Like Hyrule...:

I would really like to see a No More Heroes game set in the F-Zero universe, and a pikmin themed katamari damacy. I'm not sure if Nintendo is planning on just throwing more of their ip's into third party franchises, though, or if they're planning on making more Eshop indie style cheap games like Mario vs DK and NES Remix. I'm of course hoping for the former.

wayward commented on Feature: Five 'New Things' We Want in Super Sm...:

A boss battle mode would be pretty cool, and work around the big character problem. You could get Ridley, Master Hand, Giga Bowser, Bulborb, Rayquaza, etc and fight in 1v1 battles on the Final Destination version of stages (Possibly hp battles only as they may be too large to smash).

It would make a nice distinction between this version and the 3ds game, or an awesome dlc pack. But it would probably be too much extra work to be viable as any option.

wayward commented on Mad Men Football Shows Off Its New N64-Inspire...:

The only thing in that reel that looked n64-ish was the headgear on Washington's face. Not absolutely terrible for an indie pre-alpha, but by the progression of the shots that running animation looked god awful. I wish the developers luck though, as I would with most any (even shallow) consumer friendly endeavor in the video game business.

wayward commented on Junichi Masuda Talks Pokémon Snap and Listeni...:

It's simple: Include snap features in the next coliseum game. Make it a side thing to do like they have in every new pokemon iteration... Like beauty contests and the movie editor. It would do well to flesh out a coliseum game, as the ones on gamecube felt slightly lacking.

wayward commented on Preview: Going Retro On The Go With Ultimate N...:

It's too bad that more games didn't make it into the 3ds version, but no one will cry over missing titles like clu clu land and nes golf. Those challenges felt like the worst kind of filler that you had to slog through to 100% the game.

Keeping the replays is in the leaderboards is great; I would trade miiverse for leaderboards of any kind on the U version. If I didn't already have both titles I would definitely grab this on the 3ds. The minigame challenges seem more suited for handheld play anyway.

@97alexk
People were confused at the beginning of super metroid; There was what looked like a crawlspace, and samus could crouch down. So people were assuming there was a way to make her crawl, oblivious to the morph ball ability that they had to obtain to progress.

wayward commented on Super Smash Bros. on 3DS Lacks Circle Pad Pro ...:

@Yorumi
Donkey Kong 64 and Zelda Majora's Mask required a hardware upgrade to the N64 to be playable. On top of that, there were numerous wii games that required a hardware upgrade to the controller to play.

Nintendo does this sort of thing often. The 3ds doesn't physically have room for expansion, though; Which brings the necessity of a new model into play. I think that this is definitely the best scenario as well, because of this transition we get a more powerful handheld that won't be forced into the HD era. This way games stay cheap to produce and more niche genres stay represented.

wayward commented on Almost 50 Different System Themes Revealed Pri...:

I would absolutely adore a Pikmin theme, but doubt it would happen unless the series gets a handheld entry (which would probably have to be a spinoff; I can't see commanding 100 pikmin on a 3 inch screen). I'll hold off for Donkey Kong in the meantime.

wayward commented on Cancelled Mario Volleyball/Wrestling Wii Title...:

It's really too bad this never got off the ground, and a bit surprising that it was rejected. Pro wrestling has had a cultural foothold in Japan for decades, so it would seem a natural fit. Maybe it would have stood a better chance if Mario's face weren't plastered on it.

@Tobias95

I'll bet money that the duck hunt dog will end up in Diddy Kong Racing 2. Punchout could see another installment for the U as well, or might have if the system had been a bigger seller. F-Zero as well.

The only one with a future as dead as Ice Climbers would be Game and Watch, but he had a much more significant historical impact for Nintendo.

wayward commented on Interview: We Loot Image & Form For Insight In...:

It's really great that the developers seem to be having an orgasm of ideas and concepts for this game. March is just six months from now, so I hope they can cram all these gameplay elements into a concise package by then.

Either way this is definitely a day one buy for me. I love everything I see in this interview, and Dig was a really great game so I have confidence in Image & Form. You really don't see many indie turn based strategy games (on Nintendo systems, at least) so I can't wait to see what they have in store for us.

wayward commented on Heracross and Pinsir Distribution for Pokémon...:

They're obviously putting the stones at gamestop to drum up preorders and awareness for OR/AS. It's good that they're going with items already attainable in game for this promotion, and the pokemon are just a hook to get you into the store. Seems like a smart move.

wayward commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

Maybe Sakurai finally caved and let Miyamoto put Popeye in. For a character to get a big reveal like this it seems like it would be from another third party franchise. As much as I love him, it would be a letdown for this to wind up being Groose or a similar obscure Nintendo character.

wayward commented on First Impressions: Hyrule Warriors Is Zelda, B...:

Definitely excited for this. I haven't played many games like this since the passing of the Gamecube; I enjoyed Mystic Heroes, Gauntlet, and Spartan Total Warrior back in the day. Found Warriors Orochi 3 Hyper cheap last year but didn't like the Chinese setting... So If this is mindless fun with characters spanning the entirety of the Zelda franchise, I'm all in!

wayward commented on Hex Heroes Hacks Up Kickstarter Goal:

Backed it for a few reasons. Mainly, it's a good indicator of the Wii U's install base that an interesting concept game that utilizes the gamepad can be a success on a crowdfunding site. Also, it's amazing that it's taken this long to get a real time strategy game onto consoles; the genre has been almost entirely PC exclusives for the last 20 years.

I just hope the team can pull this off well, and that the multiplayer aspect isn't a hinderance to making this a fully realized game.
