whanvee commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

that sucks and makes it a bit of a hard sale. That is like buying a game specific accessory. Oh well maybe they will patch it in later. Perhaps they thought they could get it done by launch and it turned out they couldn't. Here is hoping we will play any game with the cube controller.

whanvee commented on We'd Be Cheating Fans By Bringing Assassin's C...:

So they were willing to release lesser versions of games before??? But now that they see they are not selling they are no longer willing to, and feel bad about it?? This is confusing. There games haven't brought dlc to the wii u versions and they have been crappier than the 360 and ps3 version. I didn't even finish AC3 because it was so damn glitchy.

Watchdogs is coming up and the lack of any sort of details from that game, well besides the whole no dlc for it thing, make me believe we will be getting a crappier version. I don't see them being ashamed of that, so I don't get it. I am holding out hope that it will be better than the current gen version, but I'm sure if I were to hold my breath for that I would probably turn blue and die.

whanvee commented on Orbital Gate Stage Brings Star Fox Mayhem to S...:

This is starting to get interesting. I always knew I was going to get smash on the 3ds but this just makes me so damn happy. It seems like these are stages that would just not have been as epic if they were on the 3ds. Since we got ripped off in the characters section cough Ice climbers cough , it is nice to see they are investing some of the added wii u power in at least the stages.

@MadAdam81

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.

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.

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.

@Genesaur
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

@Jazzer94

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.

@BLPs

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.

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.

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.

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.

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???

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.

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.

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.

@8bitforever

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.
