More engaging at times yes. I wouldn't call it less boring as the repetition that is inherent of this style of games becomes boring quick. Yesterday after the first hour I was falling asleep while playing. Not saying your opinion is wrong. Just don't think I feel the same way as you.



whanvee commented on Hyrule Warriors Limited Edition Sparks Huge Nu...:

NOA is dropping the ball when it comes to releasing a lot of things. A whole bunch of stuff has passed us by here. Not to mention that we have nothing worth having in the Nintendo Club rewards section. I'm starting to fear that my points will expire before I get around to getting anything. For a little context we have four whole rewards. Two of which are different post cards. It is pretty sad. I just don't think NOA cares for either shipping things or maybe the money behind getting all these things made. It might just not be worth it but it makes us in the Americas region kind of envious of all the other regions.

I don't think it would have been all that difficult to get these into all the stores. It seems they were not very confident that this product would sell. Oh well I don't f'ing like scarfs anyways.

Anyone think this could be a workaround for that law suit they lost not too long ago??? If the 3d tech works a little different on this one than on the old one maybe they don't have to pay that guy any money on its sales. At least that is what I think. It just sounds like this was the plan for the next handheld but Nintendo just hurried it up to maybe avoid losing any more money to this dude that sued them. Sorry I don't have a link to the lawsuit but I know they lost and were ordered to pay a pretty hefty amount plus royalties on future sales I think.



whanvee commented on Disney Infinity Toy Box 2.0 Backward Compatibi...:

I know asking for xbox one graphics is too much on the wii u but I really do wish they would try a little harder to use the wii u's power. It just seems like devs are happy just porting last gen graphics over to the wii u. "Well it looks as good as the 360 that should about do it." Then they wonder why their stuff doesn't sell on the wii u.



whanvee commented on Immediate DLC Reinforcements Arriving Soon On ...:

I have this on pre order but seeing as they are nickel and diming us for dlc characters, I might just cancel it and get it when it is used and cheap. Sorry but I don't want to pay 80 dollars for a full game. If this was announced way down the line at least a couple of months away, I might not mind. As it is though it seems pretty much like they are ripping me off. There is going to be three more characters to chose from that I am not going to have from the get go.



whanvee commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:

good old viewtiful joe, I think I will introduce that game to my son now. I still have it at arms reach and he is getting really good at platformers. He just might really dig it. My son's mind is about to be blown.

And happy Birthday Gamecube



whanvee commented on Impending Japanese Launch Of Super Smash Bros....:


The whole clone thing was the same in brawl.
Sakurai: We will cut down on clones in this version of smash brothers.....
Then turns around a releases brawl which had like at least a handful of clones.
He is a troll though so now at least I expect it.
All that being said this game still looks bad ass.



whanvee commented on The Classic Mode in Smash Bros. 3DS is Bolster...:


That is one thing about choosing a career. You start to be way hypercritical about your interactions with things that have anything to do with said career. As you say you can start seeing production values in games which most people just see as "nice graphics". Sucks for you specially if you can't fully enjoy a game because you are too busy judging and breaking apart its production values.



whanvee commented on Rock Zombie Is Bringing Hard Rock And Side-Scr...:

This looks an awful lot like an hi-rez N64 game. I love me some metal and scantly dress women but I must say I'm going to pass. The production values of this just don't seem to work. Maybe if it would have had a more old school art style it would be a bit more appealing. As it stands now though I think this will most def be a pass from me.



whanvee commented on North America is Getting the Limited Edition o...:

Because we all live in NY right?? WTF?? I really don't understand this. Were these left over copies from japan that got a packaging change?? Maybe a desperate attempt at damage control??? In any instance this is way beyond stupid. Yes I understand that I'm complaining even though we are getting a limited edition, but there is a big emphasis on limited here. As in limited to one fiftieth of the population. I'm on the other side of the US and there is absolutely no way I can ever get this version. I feel really stupid saying this but it might have just as well stayed across the ocean.



whanvee commented on North American Club Nintendo Replenishes Its P...:

Nintendo of America is dropping the ball on a lot of things. I went on their club Nintendo site yesterday and there was about 5 things to chose from. WTF is going on. If anyone from NA wants to see how stuff should be handled go visit the European club Nintendo. Fair warning though prepare to want to stab a Nintendo of America rep.



whanvee commented on Bayonetta 2 Casting Its Spell In Europe On Oct...:

what's up with Nintendo of America?? We are getting absolutely no special editions of anything. Just plain vanilla ones. I don't get the reasoning behind this madness. If we keep getting the shaft on all games(looking at you Hyrule Warriors) I might just stop supporting these games. I know my one sale won't make much of a difference, but if my choices are limited why not choose the cheap used version sometime down the line. I wonder if it is the developers choice or if it is actually just Nintendo of America. I remember they wouldn't release a white 3ds here because reggie claimed it wouldn't sell. Wonder if he feels the same way about these special editions of games?? Then again what data does he have to base his assumptions on, if there is no special bundles of any game ever being sold on the wii u???



whanvee commented on Wii U Minecraft Looking Doubtful As Dev Says T...:

I know it seems dumb but it might actually make sense. Considering all of the copies they have sold on pretty much every console possible. Who is left to buy this on the wii u?? Sure it will move some copies but who really knows how many. I think saying something along the lines of what I just said would be much more professional than alluding to a "small install base" in other consoles, basically the wii u. It is just kind of disrespectful.



whanvee commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

Guess I'm buying this used for the 360 when it goes down under 10 bucks. Won't have to worry about buying it day one on wii u, which is what I do with most of my games. Sorry Capcom no money from me for you, not that you care anyways.



whanvee commented on Feature: The Benefits of a Portable Super Smas...:

Played some of this yesterday at a "play Nintendo" event. God is it really good looking and fun to play. I thought it wasn't going to be up to par due to the system, but I'm betting it look just as good if not better than brawl. The backgrounds which generally look crappy in screen shots really shine when seen in person.



whanvee commented on Talking Point: The Wii U May be Best as One of...:

where is the wii u, but undecided about other platform choice. I have a PC but as far as running top of the line games it most definitely can not. I need a better graphics card so I don't consider my PC a gaming rig. I am planning to get another console but for now my last gen consoles and wii u will see me through. Specially with my giant backlog.



whanvee commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

why is Capcom keeping everything from the wii u. All except old ass tittles that are probably really cheap to bring over. Don't get me wrong I don't mind a lot of those but jesus, show us a little love Capcom. Way to keep giving all wii u owners the finger. Oh well guess I won't be buying any of these tittles. Do they really think none of us are interested in any hd games???



whanvee commented on Wii U System Update 5.1.1 is Now Available:

They will probably just be showing off the English dubbed version. I wouldn't expect very much. Then again if they said they were releasing a playable demo of the new Zelda at the end of it, I can't say I would be mad.



whanvee commented on Gearbox Attempts To Extract Itself From Aliens...:

Gearbox shouldn't have outsourced this game. I think up until that demo they were making it. Once outsourced the new guys turned it to poop. If they would have given as much attention to this game as they do with borderlands they might be have been working on the sequel by now.



whanvee commented on You Won't Be Able To Cross Swords Online In Hy...:

So is this something that has been in other entries in the series?? If it has, I don't see why it isn't here. If it hasn't, well then it still sucks. Is the wii u's online infrastructure as bad as the wii's?? I'm scared for smash bros. I remember being excited for brawls online. Only to find out it was really laggy when I finally got my hands on it.



whanvee commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

Don't care much for the lack of chrom. The real issue is the clone character. I hate how he says he doesn't make games with identical clones. Yet goes on to say how she is identical to another character. I just find it to be kind of stupid. Oh well another slot wasted. I know people care about the difference in her sword damage as opposed to marth's, but not enough to warrant a spot on the roster. Thanks to her we will not be getting a different type of FE character. I just hope we don't get stuck wth three starfoxes again.



whanvee commented on Mario Kart 8 Speeds Past The Two Million Copie...:


Dude the same thing happened to me when my launch wii u died about 4 or 5 years later. Well it didn't die it just stopped reading disk. The silver lining is I was able to transfer everything over to a wii u when it launched. The guys at Nintendo wouldn't transfer my games from one wii to another though, kinda stupid if you ask me.



whanvee commented on Stats Suggest That UK Kids Are More Likely To ...:

if kids are playing simple games on their tablets there is a chance that getting their hands on a 3ds and playing some full fledged games will stop them playing the tablet. This is only wishful thinking though. Video Games might die if this doesn't happen. The current gamers will eventually grow old and die. If only these tablet playing kids are left, no one is going to buy any consoles.



whanvee commented on Philips Secures Wii Patent Victory Over Ninten...:

So a camera and a sensor ey?? Doesn't seem like the wii to me. Isn't it just and IR light that can detect where the IR pointer on the wii is?? Or am I being ignorant?? I know I've seen people use candles and such in place of the sensor bar so I just don't see where the camera part comes into place. Oh well guess we will see.

The thing is this has more of a chance of destroying Nintendo than the ps4, xbox one and lack of games all together. A lot of the money they have right now is because of the wii. So losing a sizeable percentage of that would be kinda crappy and could see Nintendo going bye bye. Before anyone says that they are making bank off the 3ds as well, just remember that they lost a case on that too and are having to pay a chunk of that change too.



whanvee commented on Review: How to Survive (Wii U eShop):

It always bugs me to get half assed ports that are late to the party. At least when they are rated E and they are crappy it won't affect the future releases on the console. But when they are rated M and crappy you stop getting M rated games. Why? because they don't sell on the wii u. I'm sure the lack of sales are not due to the quality of the tittles but rather the audience on wii u.

So say goodbye to almost all M rated indie games unless this crappy late port sells, which it won't.



whanvee commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Successfully Wooed Som...:

I got me a wii u day one and I kinda loved it. I say "kinda", even though it's not a word, because there was very few games to play on it and cancelations and delays galore for what was to come. Yes, it had low sales numbers after a positive release but I never saw it as impending doom. Every other site did though. There was doom and gloom articles everywhere about the wii u and it's lack of games after it's "launch window". What really annoys me is that I see no such poopoodoodoocacapoopledoople talking on other systems which are having a very, very similar drought. Yes games have come to those systems and a lot of them are pretty bad, but still there. These systems are doing well and still sit at an install base a tad bit lower than the wii u's but developers and publishers aren't pulling their support for the system like they did on the wii u. Maybe because third party sells better on these systems but it just makes no sense to me. I've yet to see even one article about the lack of games for those systems. All everyone talks about is their bright future.

It saddens and pisses me off the double standard most "gaming journalist" have towards Nintendo. I put those two words in quotation marks not because I don't think it is a real career choice but because most of those professionals are just fan boys waving around their flag of choice. I'm not saying all game journalist are that way just the ones who were constantly talking crap.

Makes me wonder if there hadn't been so much bad press for the wii u would it be in such a rough spot right now??



whanvee commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

I agree about the third party part. But I don't think the lack of games so much as the lack of awareness for their new system was what did them in, at the beginning anyhow. No one knows what the wii u is, outside of gamers. Within a couple months of the wii release everybody knew what it was. Partially because of it's popularity but also because of strong advertisement campaigns in it's infancy.

Once the lack of games started to become apparent then even gamers that were knowledgeable about the system started ignoring it. It started with the metro game being canceled and then rayman getting delayed. The best is yet to come but I think the wii u could have done so much better in its infancy and could have had so many more games backing it, if only it would have done a little better.



whanvee commented on Video: Nintendo Unleashes Its Official E3 2014...:

No, but I as well as many others did so anyways. They had boxes to put them back into and had the attendants asking for them back. I just kept walking and made no eye contact. Yes I know I'm a scum bag, but come on..... Nintendo swag, one of a kind at that.



whanvee commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

Nintendo relied too heavily on the familiarity of the Wii name and word of mouth. They did no advertising on networks that were always seeing ds and wii spots. In other networks they advertised very little. In the months leading up to its release and over the holidays I saw two commercials. No one knew what it was so no one bought it. More so than anything I think that was what started slowly sinking the wii u ship when it first set sail.
