yvanjean commented on Watch_Dogs Wii U 2014 Release a "Possibility",...:

High percentage of WiiU owner own a Microsoft / Sony console by the time the game release on WiiU for full retail price, Watch Dog will be available in the bargain bin on other consoles. Ubisoft will then blame Nintendo and Nintendo fan base for the game bombing on the WiiU.



yvanjean commented on Video: There Are Four New Super Mario 3D World...:

@unrandomsam The game is 15 hours long if you simply play through and don't replay any level. The first 4 stage are apparently not that difficult but the difficulty level crank up in the later stage and does get quite difficult. The co-op mode and 100% completion will add to the experience and you will play much longer then 15 hours.



yvanjean commented on Review: Wii Sports Club: Bowling (Wii U eShop):

@MadAussieBloke - You've obviously haven't played the game yet.... it's really much improved over the Wii Sports counterpart (I never played it in Resorts). Unlike the Tennis, who suffers from unresponsive, non-casual friendly controls with a lack luster online mode.

The online in Bowling is a little bare also, I would of like to be able to select the numbers of opponents you play default is 4 online opponents.



yvanjean commented on Rumour: Nintendo Is Looking To Release The Wii...:

The average annual income is less in Brazil compare to Canada and US, you would think that they would sell it at a discount in these countries. When I visited New Zealand and Australia two years ago, I couldn't believe the price for new games.



yvanjean commented on Video: Nintendo Wii Sports Club Trailer Goes F...:

@leon_x You will need to get used to Tennis..... grandma and grandpa will not like the new version. Not pick up and play like Wii Sports.

But on the plus side the game as much more dept then before for gamers. I just wish they would have some tournament mode online and offline.



yvanjean commented on Video: Check Out Captain Toad's Contribution T...:

Wow, just when you though Super Mario 3D World couldn't get any better.

I bet you this is going to be completely optional and just for occasion when you want to take on a slower pace, wind down and play a more puzzle game. This game will focus on thinking and problem solving rather then platforming skills.

Wow Nintendo is bringing out all the gun, just like Super Mario 3D land revived the 3ds. Here Mario to the rescue for WiiU. If only they had a Mario Kart WiiU as a one - two punch... oh wait they do But, that would not be enough to knock it out of the ball park that would probably need a game like Super Smash Brother WiiU.

2014 predictions:
1. EA comes crawling back to WiiU and renews the unprecedented third party support for WiiU.
2. 10 Million WiiU sold worldwide by March 2014.



yvanjean commented on A Fresh Batch of Lovely Super Mario 3D World S...:

@HaNks This game is a system seller, people pick up a $300 system just to buy this $60 game. Would you rather make $300 or $360 .... anyone that wants this game will pick up both. They should release a Wii Fit U Bundle that should be Nintendo priority.



yvanjean commented on Video: Nintendo Wii Sports Club Trailer Goes F...:

The Graphic don't look that much better, the HD isn't noticable.
The cool thing is the 24 hour trial and the 1.99$ for 24 hours.
The 24 hours is not for a 24 hrs period but actually you get to play for 24 hours. If you purchase 24 hours of bowling you can play for months if you only play 1 hour a day.



yvanjean commented on Talking Point: Regional Online Multiplayer Mis...:

I find it kinda annoying when I get Spanish or Japanese message in my Miiverse since I can't read them. So maybe region lock inst really a bad ideas. Especially if there any conversation between players. Even if these conversation are limited to Miiverse posts.



yvanjean commented on Talking Point: Regional Online Multiplayer Mis...:

What the heck??? The international online competition is what make this game worth $9.99. I though this game was in development so long because they were adding a robust online system. Come on Nintendo, get your act together, next-gen start in two week and your online system is two generation old.



yvanjean commented on Phoenix Wright: Dual Destinies Proves That Cap...:

Most gamer are just rushing through the text anyways.... at least the joke and story as been spot on. I just finished Act 3 last night. I've notice a few typos but I just thought it was the characters being odd and never stop to consider it was actually a typo. Great game, some of the investigation have been dragging but I'd still recommend it to any Phoenix Wright fan.



yvanjean commented on Rumour: Sony Running Campaign To Push Potentia...:

Vita connectivity is never really going to take off, it's same a PS eye and Kinect.... you can't make games that support device that only a fraction of your user base can play. Xbox One is taking a gamble with having a Kinect 2.0 with every bundle. But at least going forward Kinect games are going to be mainstream.



yvanjean commented on Rayman Legends And Splinter Cell Blacklist Bot...:

Ubisoft is just a large corporation making games with the intent to make a profit. Ubisoft could of build a good relationship with WiiU fan base, did us a solid by delivering us a game we desperately needed back in February. But, instead got greedy and expect us to bend over. I'm going to boycott Rayman Legend till there a price drop or I can find a cheap secondhand copy. I'd rather support Platinum Games, Monolith Soft, 5th Cell and Nintendo. These are the guys that will make games worth buying on the WiiU, expect nothing but lame half donkey port from Ubisoft going forward with some keys features missing when compared to other consoles.
Watch the profanity please — TBD



yvanjean commented on Pokémon X & Y Pass 1.8 Million Retail Sales t...:

Why are you guys talking about WiiU on a Pokemon Game release week, obviously any Japanese Nintendo Fan will only be getting Pokemon this week.

Next week shouldn't be any better as all Nintendo Fan will only be playing Pokemon. The October 30th is the important week for WiiU. If they can't break 50k on that week then it's just sad.



yvanjean commented on Nintendo Announces Luigi and The Legend of Zel...:

@DarkLloyd If it's anything like the Animal Crossing 3d XL bundle make sure to pre-order, there only one shipment and they sell out on day one.

Sweet, I've been waiting for a good 3ds bundle to replace my blue 3ds XL (which got one dead pixel after being dropped). This bundle was worth the wait.



yvanjean commented on Watch_Dogs Pushed Back to Spring 2014:

@rjejr Just saying the game is suppose to be release this November, but was delayed to fuel the Xbox One and PS4 sales numbers and to improve the 2014 Ubisoft earning. The WiiU version of the game was initially schedule to release November 12. The WiiU version is complete and ready for release. So, your talk about cancellation of the WiiU version doesn't make any sense. At this point the cost of developing the game on all five console as already been incurred and none of the five version of the game will get cancel.



yvanjean commented on Watch_Dogs Pushed Back to Spring 2014:

@rjejr game development stop at least one month before release date, hence why the delay is announce today, Ubisoft would not be delaying the game because the WiiU version is not ready. But on the other hand all game were near complete because everyone at Ubisoft before todays delay were aiming at a November release. The WiiU game is already playable and probably 99% finished.

This is the same thing as the Rayman Legends delay it's done for financial reason.

Ubisoft to shareholders:
"Our long term goal is to win the next generation. The tough decisions we are taking today to fully realize the major potential of our new creations have an impact on our short-term performance. We are convinced that, longer term, they will prove to be the right decisions both in terms of satisfaction for our fans and in terms of value creation for our shareholders. We are building franchises that will become perennial pillars of Ubisoft’s financial performance. In a context of growing successes for mega-blockbusters, the additional time given to the development of our titles will allow them to fulfill their huge ambitions and thus offer players even more exceptional experiences.

Fueled by strong momentum for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, calendar 2014 will see the return of growth to the console market. Combined with the quality of our line-up and our strong financial situation, this growth will allow us to achieve record operating income in fiscal 2014-15 and 2015-16."



yvanjean commented on Watch_Dogs Pushed Back to Spring 2014:

@rjejr only you!!!! If anything the WiiU version might actually get better. This current delay was done for financial reason. Ubisoft did not want there new IP to get lost in all the shuffle of next gen launch title and current holiday release.
But, I bet the team working on the WiiU version can use the extra time to make the game better on that console.



yvanjean commented on Watch_Dogs Pushed Back to Spring 2014:

Just like that Wii U 2014 line up is look that much better.
DKC Tropical Freeze - February 2014
Mario Kart 8 - March 2014? or Q1
Watch dog - April 2014
Smash Brother (Wii U) - May 2014? or Q2



yvanjean commented on Nintendo Confirms Three New Wii U Hardware Bun...:

@Shadowkiller97 Once Nintendo start offering some great deals on the eshop, I'm afraid 32 GB will not be enough.
I've already install my 1TB HDD... It was very easy to install. I think other people would feel more comfortable buying a HDD with a Nintendo Logo on it.
On my HHD: I have Zelda Wind Waker HD, Pikmin 3 and Super Luigi U.
I also have Trine 2, Star wars Pinball, Zen pinball, bunch of smaller games.

Apparently Lego City is like 8-10GB, game like that would make the 32 GB insufficient.



yvanjean commented on Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Will ...:

Well it's just up to us not to support the game. Wait till next year when there a other software lull in the WiiU lineup and pick it up second hand or hopefully for a discount.

It the same think with Raymand Legend, I bought a WiiU for that game. After, the delay, Ubisoft will not received full retail price from me. I bought Pikmin 3 & Wonderful 101 instead.



yvanjean commented on Review: Breath of Fire II (Wii U eShop / Super...:


It doesn't sound like you've played the WiiU version. Before you give it a score make sure you take time to play it on the WiiU. Sure the game was a 8-9/10 back on the SNES. But now it's being rated in 2013, 6/10 actually sound generous to me.



yvanjean commented on Hands On: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

Cross platforms actually mean WiiU, 3ds & Smart phones and tablets.

The developer better not screw over WiiU & 3ds owners by offering this game on the Smart phones and tablets at a fraction of the cost.



yvanjean commented on Hands On: Pure Chess (Wii U eShop):

Here what I would like to see from this game:
1. Classic view.
2. Robust online mode and online leadership board.
3. Imagine this game with online chat and camera view.
4. All of the above options + cross platform with 3ds.

It would be worth 10$ for simple online mode, 20$ if it enable online chat and video.



yvanjean commented on Video: Want To See Just How Much Better Zelda:...:


I feel like the new version is much brighter but if you think about it, Link is on Island with bright sun overhead it should be brighter. Beside, WW cartoonist art style was always meant to be this way they weren't going for Batman vibe which would of been colder and darker.

If you look at the dungeon level in the short clip (22sec-25sec), the area as been brighten up but now the focus will be on game play rather then struggling because the area is too dark. They can build tension with music and just the fight you encounter during the exploration of the dungeon. Beside in the gamecube version the lamp from the minion barely as any lighting effect, the new WW HD version add much more realism to the game and the HD make the entire area look so much more crisp and beautiful.

This is actually the very first Zelda HD and it look amazing. I can't wait to see what the new Zelda WiiU will look and play. It's going to be epic.



yvanjean commented on Video: Want To See Just How Much Better Zelda:...:


The Gamecube was standard definition and the new WW HD is in widescreen. In order to match the size they would of had to stretch the Gamecube image which wouldn't of been fair to the original graphic design.

The image size was smaller back on SD, hence why the WW HD is such a great improvement over the original, Just the added viewing angle will make this a much better enjoyment to be played.



yvanjean commented on Video: Want To See Just How Much Better Zelda:...:


That comment just make you look ignorant.

It's like saying "Oh I like my black and white tv, these new color tv's make the image blurry"

Wind Waker HD look amazing and I actually never played much of the original never really dig the art style back in the day. But, I'm ready to put that aside and enjoy this brand new experience for myself.



yvanjean commented on "No Plans" For Ambassador Program Following Wi...:

Everyone that bought a WiiU back in November knew they were buying it at a $50 premium just for being an early adopter. Back then everyone was expecting a price cut after Nintendo Year-end of March 2013. But, Nintendo bullishly stuck to the $350 price tag which explain why they only manage to sell less then 500K consoles world wide in the last 5 months. Nintendo should of announce a price cut and a new bundle with Super Mario Bros U back in late March 2013. I don't want an ambassador program. I just wished it wouldn't of taken Nintendo so long to give a price cut that was 5 months overdue.



yvanjean commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Low-Key Approach to ...:

I'm also a Microsoft fanboy that actually cancel my pre-order of my Day one - Xbox One and instead got a pre-order of Wind Waker HD's Special Edition Ganondorf Figurine.

Very limited editions, Nintendo actually means it when they say limited edition.

Sad memory of not getting The skyward Sword limited Edition. DAMN YOU NINTENDO, I WANT MY GOLDEN WIIMOTE!!!!!
