XCWarrior commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

@ledreppe I can't even trust "AAA" developers anymore when it comes to preordering games. Not after the Alien Colonial Marines fiascho. I think the only game I've preordered in the last 3 years was MHTU, and thats' only because it was released in Japan and we already knew it was good.

No games are sold out at stores anymore. There is no reason to preorder.



XCWarrior commented on Review: F-Zero Maximum Velocity (Wii U eShop /...:

I think it's better than the SNES game, but only margainally. Neither are very fun. Why not bring out the GCN on WiiU VC? That actually looks like a playable game. These are not all that much fun, and difficult to boot. I usually love a hard game, but it needs to be fun.



XCWarrior commented on Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This...:

Probably will finish up Block Drop U, purposely doing it in 3 parts to make it last a bit longer. Slowly plowing through Dragon Quest IX. I need to get back to ZombiU, which so far has been a huge disappointment.

And then there's Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate on WiiU. This is an always.

2 weeks until Mario Golf, needs to get here ASAP!



XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 17th April (North America):

"Super Mario Bros. 3 (Nintendo, $4.99) — This classic NES platformer, some would argue the greatest game EVER, finally lands on Nintendo's current systems in North America."

There, I fixed your story's sentence.



XCWarrior commented on 3DS Release Added to Cult County's Core Kickst...:

Nothing is going to save Kickstarter. I own a couple of Renegade Kid's games - they are fun - but no way are they going to hit this lofty goal.

Kickstarter is coming under fire for broken promises, and I think the good devs you can rely on might suffer if they ask for a lot of money right now.



XCWarrior commented on Ubisoft and EA Lock In Their E3 Presentation D...:

@XCWarrior The 3DS gets good Japanese 3rd party support. They still get awful Western 3rd party support. The 3DS is not easy to port to, clearly, as noticed by the lack of games for it. Vita gets more games at times, mostly ports, because its easier to develop for.

The only way Ubisoft or EA will develop anything for WiiU ever again is if Mario Kart 8 helps sell a ton of WiiUs. And they won't know those numbers for months, meaning this E3 will have nada for from American 3rd party support for WiiU.



XCWarrior commented on Ubisoft and EA Lock In Their E3 Presentation D...:

Out of the 65 comments before this, only 2 people mention 3DS. 2. Why is that? Why do people obsess over the WiiU's bad sales and bad support, and yet ignore fact that the 3DS is doing well.

And no, EA and Ubisoft have nothing to do with the 3DS' success. So maybe we shouldn't care if they have nothing or next to nothing for the WiiU. The Japanese developers are going to provide the system selling content, not EA or Ubicrap.

Shouldn't even be filed as Nintendo news.



XCWarrior commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

Very slim chances on most of these games. Are we seeing the beginning of the end for Kickstarter, or just WiiU Kickstarter games?

There have been a few articles in the recent weeks showing how funded kickstarter games are not being finished. Remember, donating money is no guarantee you will get a game. You are handing over money to someone with the HOPE they feel like making the game they said they would.

I feel bad for Renegade Kid... but I honestly want to see less of devs asking customers to essentially "pay it forward." Especially with the ones that don't show gameplay. No one should ever give money to a game with no gameplay. It's all just a pipe dream at that point.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball (3DS eShop):

@TwilightV No it's not actually. If they gave you all the mini games at once for $16 (the lowest amount possible), you'd pay $16 worth of sales tax.

If you buy the 10 games seperately, as you do in the game, you will pay for $16 worth of sales tax eventually. It comes out to the same amount.

And this is why math in school is so important.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball (3DS eShop):

Played the limited free version. It seems fun, but at the end of the day, the game is just a ton of DLC. I don't care how you present it. I stand by my rule - if the DLC isn't free, it isn't for me. No exceptions.



XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd April (North America):

Rusty's Real Deal Baseall for me because I need some baseball on my 3DS. I hope it's good.

I'll probably get Advance Wars down the road, but need to play through Link to the Past still which I got on Club Nintendo awhile back.



XCWarrior commented on Features: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Spri...:

Smash not coming out in 2014... not sure why its on the list.

Mario Golf can't wait.

And for all the negative nancies above, just cause you don't like a genre (because you refuse to try it out probably), don't say it's junk. There are other games I am looking forward to, but it helps when I actually try them out.

SOme of you need to seriously branch out. Nintendo makes awesome games, but so do other developers. There is bad 3rd party support and therefore bad WiiU sales because of this, "Nintendo games only for me" mentality.



XCWarrior commented on Report Suggests That June Could Be Crucial For...:

Mario Kart succeeds or he's gone. We can say whatever we want, but that is the fact.

May 30 is D-Day for Iwata. Better market the heck out of the Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle. Like 1 commercial during every commercial break on every single channel for the entire month of May. That might be enough.



XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Download: 27th March (North America):

Woof Nintendo. Just woof.

Going to pick up Cloudberry Kingdom since it's on sale for $7. Otherwise, big pass again this week.

I really hope April is better. I know Nintendo claims we are going to get GBA games, but when you see release weeks like this, it's hard to believe them.



XCWarrior commented on Fiendishly Tricky Precision Platformer Chubbin...:

@dahkuToby First off kudos for taking some harsh criticism/comments on here and taking it in stride. I know gamers (including myself at times) can be a harsh bunch.

I get what you are saying about leaderboards not being taken advantage of on mobile gaming, but 99% of those people are super casual players. But I understand the logic.

I think other people are saying stuff about the graphics. That's not of my concern, mainly because Edge on WiiU/3DS is very simplistic but a ton of fun (also could use online leaderboards for best time, but that's besides the matter).

Anywho, hope the WiiU specific trailer makes the game look a bit better. And at least you are listening to potential buyers. Way better than some "AAA" devs out there.



XCWarrior commented on Preview: Mario Golf: World Tour:

Having just finished up Mario Golf GBC after 25+ hours of fun, I look forward to this being the next big time sink on my 3DS. Sound promising based on this preview.

@arnoldrobinsonj Amen. We need a good baseball game on 3DS and WiiU!



XCWarrior commented on Super Mario Bros. 3 Is Warping To North Americ...:

As a 3DS Ambassador (I know there aren't many of us, but we are a high percentage of those who buy VC games) this lineup is very poor, cause, you know, we own half of the games.

I look forward to SMB3 and Advance Wars, so that's better than nothing.



XCWarrior commented on Fiendishly Tricky Precision Platformer Chubbin...:

@dahkuToby Thanks for responding. I'll always read reviews and the game gets good recommendations I will certainly look into it. Will it have online leaderboards? Cause I'll say right now you have my interest by a lot more if it does, really get annoyed how games with score based levels like this one lack that.



XCWarrior commented on Advance Wars Bringing the Battle to the Wii U ...:

@Gso @Artwark Although I'm with you guys that they should be released on both systems, right now Nintendo needs to give you reasons to own a WiiU. Like it or not, this is one way of doing that. Not to mention Earthbound is already on the system. And there are plenty of great games for WiiU, it's worth buying at this point, or at least get the Mario Kart 8 bundle in May.



XCWarrior commented on Review: Ice Hockey (Wii U eShop / NES):

All of these basic NES sports titles they keep releasing should be $2 a piece. There are so many better NES sports games options. Why can't we have those instead.

Bases Loaded II,III,IV, Baseball Stars, Blades of Steel, Tecmo Football, Tecmo Basketball, etc. Come on, let's see those.



XCWarrior commented on Nintendo Highlights Over 50 Unity Games on the...:

I hope they get more than 50 before the end of the year.
Next 2 months = 8 weeks / 17 games = about 2 games a week
Rest of year from there = 32 weeks / 33 games = about 1 game a week

Not counting stuff from Nintendo, eshop isn't going to populate all that quickly.

I have found several good games come from the Indies so far on WiiU, hopefully it continues.
