Windy commented on Review: Blocky Bot (Wii U eShop):

I find that easier over complexity always wins. These games that use every button on a controller really drag down the experience. Now games like street Fighter uses every button but the controls are simplistic.

Looks good. I find it kind of hard to believe publishing the game to a Nintendo console is still kind of up in the Air when he has collected nearly 3,000,000.00 in Donations. What do they have a team of 100 people working on this game? It does look good though.

I might download VVVVV. I'm really waiting for and excited about Gotcha Racing due in the next 6 weeks or so. Nice to see Nicalis have a sale. They hardly offer sales. VVVVV is the only Nicalis game I need on their sale. I have the rest. That's a good deal for Grinsia. Its a decent RpG. Although Splatoon looks to have some decent online I'm not interested in it.

I'm shocked since Nintendo tries to stay away from abuse like What was done with swapnote. I still think they bailed out of swapnote too soon. Almost like they were looking for an excuse to cancel that service.

The Wii-U will collect more dust. What a shame. Back in the old days they would have just released it running at 15 Frames per second. I'm glad they came out and let everyone know it may not he possible

Windy commented on Gawk at the Dragon Quest VIII Promotional Post...:

Please! Please! Please! Localize these games. Has anyone started a petition yet? There is no reason to hold out on either VII or VIII heck Dragon Quest X is a system seller for Wii-U or 3DS. A real shame if Europe and North America don't get these titles. Don't hold your breath though. Square Enix has been acting very strangely. I think DQ would outsell Bravely Default just for the fact that they are better games.

Windy commented on Talking Point: The Fragility of Buying Downloa...:

@Rex28 as much as I would like to see Physical copies only too. I think at some point its going to be just the opposite and be download only. It saves them so much money to go download only. The problem is this.....they will not pass on that savings to the consumer by going all digital. They already do it. The retail digital download games are ridiculously high in price. They should be at least 15 dollars cheaper than retail with no box, no manual, and no manufacturers cost to put them on cartridge or DVD/CD. Then their lame excuse for that pricing is that they have to do it that way to give retailers a chance to sell their retail copies. Bolonie! Bologna! Whatever!

@skywake um knowing Nintendo. At some point in the next year or two I would be willing to bet they shut down the Wii download servers using the excuse that the licenses had been expired or revoked on most or all the games. It hasn't happened yet so there is no telling. I just think Nintendo will get tired of maintaining it. Everyone will have this oh well those people should have moved on attitude. Right now its the best place to get VC games since Nintendo isn't doing VC like they did on Wii anyway.

This is why I buy retail games on Cartridge and then buy the throw always I'm interested in from the Eshop. I think you gotta be some kind of crazy to download retail games. I would also like to know the real reason why a game in the android market is .99 cents and in the Eshop will run 7.99 or higher. It doesn't seem fair. I will rarely buy games with that price difference but I have before. Its rare though

Maybe its time to take Dragon Quest X into your own hands Nintendo and publish it on Wii-U. You wanna sell some systems don't ya? Cause Dragon Quest x would do just that. It really would be a system seller game. But you guys don't see it I guess.

@c1pher_c0mplet I also love these type of games but if there is no online co-op I will more than likely pass up this game. Really not just because of no online play but the fact that I have a huge Backlog of games. Online play would be the kixcker though and move this game right to the top of that backlog.

Windy commented on Nintendo Download: 21st May (North America):

@c1pher_c0mplet I'm just sad that they cancelled it and that they feel they need to police a chat program. Its sick what some people did and I don't doubt that those things happened because people can be sick and demented. I do think Nintendo was looking for an easy out on the program and they got it because of a few sick people. I miss it and loved checking it every day for messages from friends. People have to be some kind of stupid these days posting and sending nudie pictures of themselves . it seems to always come back to haunt. Don't do it. **shakes finger**

@KnightRider666 I finally downloaded Retro City Rampage being cheap and waiting for a huge sale which it got this week. I gotta say. WHAT A GREAT GAME! Now that I have it and have played it a couple hours I would actually have no problems paying full price. But I'm glad I got it as cheap as I did. I'm not into GTA type games but Retro City Rampage is indeed a Gem. If anyone has been on the fence about Retro City Rampage now is the time at 4.99 its a steal

@FeedingTheWheel I agree. One thing I don't get. If a game isn't selling in Eshop like say WRC Rally racing 34.99 (3.99 on PSN market and Android market) you would think pricing it right would sell copies. I bought the Android version and it actually a decent rally racer. Just sacked price. They will not sell 100 copies of WRC racing at that price I guarantee it. Lower the price idiots.

@KnightRider666 I think the ship has sailed on the VC bud. Of course it could be fixed and quickly but its obvious VC is not a priority for Ninty right now. What a shame. I'm really into the 3d classics and that ship will sail when Sega stops making 3d classics.

@MadAdam81 I don't buy the over abuse for 1 second. I had 25 people on my friends list most of which were people over 30 years old. Not one message was abuse in the time we used it. I think Nintendo was starting up MiiVerse and didn't want to have to pay for 2 Servers so they were just being cheap in my opinion and Used abuse to get out of swapnote. Besides swapnote was a friendslist chat program.

I just Youtubed Stone Shire and it looks pretty good. Doesn't seem to be any different from any other Minecraft Games. Talk about a game which snuck up on Wii-U. Under the radar.

@PikaNick I was so mad at the cancelation of swapnote. In fact I would rather still have that than MiiVerse which to me has always been kinda lame. It was nice to take pics in games and send them to just people on friends list not the whole world. I just get this feeling Nintendo doesn't want us gaming with our real life friends online. So weird the way they operate.

@JaxonH Dude! You have an excellent passion for the gaming. I like it. As I've gotten older myself I get cheaper and try to save a buck here and a buck there. However I do have a couple Genres which I buy day 1. I'm a sucker for pretty much any RPG's. Keep up the passion ;)

Windy commented on The Latest Miiverse Update Has Users In An Uproar:

I very rarely use it as is. If it bums out the masses I hate to see that. Its junk. It doesn't allow private messaging with buddies and allows for no privacy at all. Sometimes you just want a message to just go to a few friends not the whole world.

Seems like an aweful amount of trouble just to save some money. I would rather keep my system up to date and running by paying and making sure the future of the system is intact and doesn't suffer a death like the Dreamcast did. One of my favorite systems died way before its time due to the piracy **sadface**

@Deadeyerobbie I feel about the same way. I bought all the Level 5 games on 3DS at full price and was very happy with every purchase. I even bought the level 5 soccer game (which is awesome BTW) at full price. I say if you get good entertainment out of what you bought for what you paid, its all good. I hope they will fix this dicrepancy between the Eshop and Android markets though. It drives me nuts.

@Ristar42 thanks for that Info Ristar I didn't know that. I'm going to still pass the game up until it gets a sale of at least 50%. Besides I bought the android version. Its actually a very good game after getting into the android version. I would love to play it on my 3DS with those gamepad Controls and 3d effects but will wait till its at least 14.99. I would still be willing to pay 14.99 even though I see it in the android market for 3.99. Playing on the more comfortable gamepad and getting the 3d effects would be worth 14.99 to me. I also wouldn't mind if it dropped to 10 bucks lol

Windy commented on Exclusive: eShop Publishers Are Dropping Relea...:

It sounds like a racket to me. Why not just go like the Apple and Android market? Parents seem to have no issues at all letting their kids play on those platforms. Those also seem to be platforms of choice just recently. A game programmer just writes and uploads the game to those markets. How hard is that? Its definitely the Wild west in those markets as far as safety goes for your kids. But the facts are more people are downloading there, than here in the Eshop

Windy commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

I kind of Disagree that consumers should take any blame at all with these pricing models which were started by publishers. No reason for consumers to take any blame. Now just recently WRC Rally racing released on 3DS in the Eshop for 34.99. I run across the exact same game in the Android market for 3.99. This difference in pricing is absolutely rediculous. One Market gets it dirt cheap and the next market gets it at rddicously high price because projected sales are not going to be that great. This has been driving me nuts since Angry Birds. At least angry birds was on Cartridge. WRC Racing is download only I believe. There is a difference in getting a game on cartridge and downloading a game I don't care what anyone says. If WRC had a cartridge release I can see 34.99 but download only the game in my opinion should be about half that price at least. Doesn't that make sense at all? No cartridge, no boxes, no need to manufacturer other than programming and uploading should equal cheaper games. Am I wrong here? To me its very greedy to be putting up a game for download at its retail price. I have generally been very happy with my Eshop purchases but if a game goes retail and also has a download I'm buying retail. If its download only that's where I decide if I'm buying or not. Unfortunately for WRC racing I'm not paying 34.99 when I see it in the android market for 3.99. I don't think it will sell 3,000 copies at that price. So too sell more copies wouldn't lowering the price achieve that? Or will the publisher just let their game rot in the Eshop at the higher price by being stubborn? I'm sorry but in this case of WRC racing the pricing is just wrong.

Windy commented on UCraft is a Wii U Exclusive Once Again:

Cracks me up at how many people say "who cares!" But if this gets released it will be Nexis games who gets the last laugh. This game will fly off the Eshop. Just my prediction. I'm not a big fan of Minecraft. In fact I never played a version until I recently bought Cube Creator. Guess what? I find myself enjoying Cube Creator alot. I really think a Wii-U version needs online play though. I say Good Luck Nexis Games. Games get delayed all the time. Personally I think Nintendo should make a version of their own and call it Nintendo Craft using all their Franchised characters and Monsters. Now how cool might that be?

Windy commented on Square Enix Pushes Back Its E3 Press Conferenc...:

I was so glad to hear about Dragon Quest VIII coming to 3DS. I hope it gets ported. I have some mixed feelings about Square. They have pretty much moved into smart phones with a bang and seem to be doing pretty well. It wouldn't surprise me if sometime in the next year they follow Konami and Sega to the Greener Pastures of smart phones and Tablets. Or so they think its greener pastures. I'm worried about them doing this and it would be a huge console loss.
