About damn time.

@electrolite77 I'll edit my post. I thought that this community might've been above that.
It's funny how lots of people defended Nintendo's mistakes, saying they didn't have to change (not members of this site). But now Iwata admits they have to change.
EDIT: Actually people are doing that on this site. Go figure
WiiUExposed commented on Extended Maintenance On The Way For Pokémon X...:
@rjejr They're 2 separate applications, but since the Transporter imports pokemon into the Bank, you effectively need both.

Censorship is just silly.
WiiUExposed commented on Talking Point: New Year Resolutions for Nintendo:
Great list. Just two things that weren't mentioned in this list:1. Bring back older IPs- Metroid (2D and Prime), Starfox, F-Zero, etc2. As others said, get the VC in top shape. Get the entire Wii VC library on there and more. Have some GCN and GBA games too.

@grimbldoo Point is that you're making it out to be like Nintendo can't possibly make this game's development time to be shorter than Brawl's.
@grimbldoo Actually if you have five chefs preparing the soup, those chefs can prepare the ingredients individually rather than one chef preparing all himself. Gotta try a little harder man.
@grimbldoo Namco Bandai's helping
It shouldn't take even the same time as Brawl's development. Namco Bandai's helping, there's no story mode, and the online won't have to be shoehorned in.

Very good guide, great job Mr. Whitehead.
WiiUExposed commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Confirms Playable Cranky Kong...:
@Oren Well I certainly wish there were more people like your friends here in this world.
@minotaurgamer If "creating hype" includes making all gamers outside of Nintendo's dedicated base ridicule Nintendo, then yes, Nintendo created lots of hype.

@Wonder_MaskImportance is subjective, yes. But the widespreadness of that importance isn't.

@Tedikuma I also tried changing the "Page Style" in Firefox to "None" and it allowed me to save the picture.
@Tedikuma If you're a Windows user, try using "Snipping Tool" to capture your pictures.
WiiUExposed commented on Talking Point: The GamePad and its Role Defini...:
@SanderEvers People are saying that Nintendo has to make different hardware to be different. I just destroyed that point.
In no way shape or form did I mention the success level of Sega.
You're using an irrevelvant argument against mine.
Nintendo doesn't even make games that fully use it anymore. Nintendo Land is the one that really uses the Gamepad, and the line up of Wii U first party games don't use the Gamepad in anything big.
You don't have to differentiate yourself through hardware. You do it through software. Sega had no trouble at all being different from Nintendo in the 8 and 16 bit eras, and it wasn't because of controllers.

One step forward.
A few miles back.

@electrolite77 I can understand that
@electrolite77 Only thing I disagree with is 64 remake since we already have a remake for it: the DS one

@LetsGoRetro Happens when I write a comment when I'm tired. But less than 1 per 2 states falls under the range of less than 2 per 1 state.
Yes, I'm aware that this is damage control. But I gotta save a little face, right?
23 locations across 50 states is less than 2 in a state. That's pathetic.

WiiUExposed commented on The Wonderful 101 Update Now Available To Down...:
@Fingeldor It's all good man, I didn't mean to sound rude. The demo was incredibly fun for me, so I gotta get the game at Christmas.
@Linkstrikesback Thanks for the info
@Fingeldor I know that. I want to know if the update is available to those who haven't logged in time to the actual game.
And I just got a response from someone else.
@Fingeldor Yeah sorry that I don't like spending my money whenever I feel like it
Gonna pick this up later, is there a way to download this before actually playing the game?
EDIT: @linkstrikesback just gave me an answer
WiiUExposed commented on Pokémon Developers: Paid DLC Could "Ruin The ...:
Having millions (hyperbole) of Japan exclusive events hurts the "worldview"
But anyway, pay to catch is a crutch for people who can't catch it themselves if the pokemon is available in game. If the pkmn isn't available in game, then that's a fault on Game Freak, it's annoying to see so many pokemon that you pretty much need to cheat to even obtain.
@Ibrahim77 Yep. Factual.
WiiUExposed commented on Rumour: Sony Running Campaign To Push Potentia...:
@Macarony64 Wii U GamePad and Vita are very similar. PS4 is capable of doing it although I don't think it will be used very heavily.
@wasf I have no idea why people think that doing a smart business move is somehow "fearing" another company.
This is how business works. If you can provide a similar experience with your own products, try to snag a piece of the competition's install base.
Just business man.
WiiUExposed commented on Eiji Aonuma Wants it to be "Fun To Get Stuck" ...:
@Ernest_The_Crab The thing with Fire Emblem is that there were options: Casual and Classic to entice newcomers and keep challenge for veterans.
Most other Nintendo franchises wouldn't give that kind of option.
For example, 3D Marios have slowly gotten less and less complex since Galaxy. Galaxy 1+2 are still masterpieces, but by taking out huge hubworlds and levels to truly explore, they lost a whole lot of depth.
Keep handholding to an absolute minimum in Zelda games. Likewise with Metroid, Fire Emblem, and more Nintendo franchises. Not every Nintendo franchise needs to be 100% accessible to everyone.

The game looks like crap when you compare it to games like Kid Icarus Uprising, Mario Kart 7, Resident Evil, Star Fox 64, etc.
Those games did not suffer from 3D-related slowdown, Kid Icarus being the best example due to its fast nature and great graphics.
WiiUExposed commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD...:
@TheOneHacker I like the way it looks, and since I actually never owned the GCN version (beat my friend's copy), I'll be getting this.
I wish that the models and textures were updated. The only major new graphical update was the lighting (which "major" is an understatement) (and high res isn't major). Looking at screenshots, I can tell that the models and textures are Gamecube quality. I wish they gave it the Ocarina of Time 3D graphical rehaul treatement rather than just lighting. Still picking it up though, probably Christmas.
WiiUExposed commented on Talking Point: With Calls for Nintendo to Foll...:
Nintendo has to have their hard-hitter games ready before the console release. They can't release consoles, have droughts, say "Please understand," and so on this many times. Iwata never learns from his launch mistakes (even though he sure as hell knows how to say "Please understand" due to them).
People say all that matters is the end result, but right now, this IS the end result. Their management needs to get with the times. Not the game devs (for the most part), they're fine. They just need to learn that they should have local AND online multiplayer for certain games (Mario 3D World). The "local is better" isn't an excuse, since if you don't have friends close by, you can't play local at all.
Their upper management lives in this bubble where they say "we don't care about the competition." To an extent, this is noble because they won't do shady business tactics that others will do. It also has big problems because they refuse to do what has been standard since 2005 (unified accounts, unified voice chat system, all in all, the standard online system). Miiverse is definitely a nice thing to have, but it's no replacement for the standard online system.

I have no idea why I have to pay to transfer my Pokemon. That's been free since Gen II.
WiiUExposed commented on Rayman Legends Sells More Copies In The UK On ...:
This is good news. Shows that the Wii U is a viable platform.
Third parties, when you give the Wii U the best version at the same time as the other versions, it will show in the sales.
WiiUExposed commented on We're Getting Digital Right On 3DS And Wii U, ...:
@unrandomsam That's true... but what does that have to do with anything I said?
@wombatkidd It isn't about whether it was their first try or not. It's about them not taking hints from other companies' decisions. Do you also think it's okay for Nintendo to have trouble developing HD games 8 years after HD becoming mainstream just because it was "their first try"? They've had years to prepare for this, and they couldn't even get that right. I expect better from my favorite game devs.
It's better to have a limited amount of transfers for the 3DS and no transfer system at all for the Wii U than it is to be able to log into a different system?
And good job, using an example of a model made in 2009 as a reason to why it's okay to have a worse one in 2013.
@EvisceratorX IMO, they should have a 32GB model, 120GB model, and 250/500GB model. Those who don't want digital can get 32gb, those who want some digital without having to use a slower external HDD can get the latter.
@originaljohn Because you don't have to go through a crappy transfer process to recover your digital content...
@rodoubleb Damn straight. I'll start doing that, thanks for the tip.
