    Wii U vs. Switch

    Did you even read the post? I'm talking about people who already own the Wii U. And I've yet to meet a Wii U owner who hates the console.

    Wii U vs. Switch

    I'm curious, do you think Nintendo can make a compelling argument for Wii U owners to buy the Nintendo Switch at launch? I've been following "NX" news and rumors since Satoru Iwata first announced that the Big N was working on a project with a new concept nearly... 2 years ago? I was excited to...

    TPHD-Wii U What improvements would you like to see inTPHD?

    I see lots of great points here that I hope Nintendo is going to fix for Twilight Princess HD. One thing I didn't see mentioned but that DRIVES ME CRAZY every time I play Twilight Princess is that if Link's wallet is full and you come across a treasure chest containing rupees, the game will not...

    TPHD-Wii U Are you gonna get TPHD?

    Absolutely! Based on my experience with Wind Waker HD, I think Nintendo is going to vastly improve the aesthetic and experience of playing Twilight Princess. I'm excited to relive one of my favorite Zelda games on Wii U!

    Thanks for the tip. I'll have to look it up. :)

    Rate your top 10 Anime's

    The only anime I can say I really ever got into was Dragon Ball/Dragon Ball Z. And I guess perhaps Sailor Moon and Gundam Wing? Though I never got into those to the same extent. Are there any good animes available in English on Netflix?

    What Is The WORST Video Game You've Ever Played?

    Superman 64 comes to mind. I wanted so bad for it to be good.

    Why does Nintendo re-release consoles after the next generation console is already released?

    Another important point is that for people who might still be in the market for a Wii, a used Wii costs about the same as a new Wii Mini. From Nintendo's perspective, they aren't making any money on the resale of a pre-owned Wii. If they can produce a stripped down Wii on the cheap that still...

    Why does Nintendo re-release consoles after the next generation console is already released?

    There is a decent number of people who tend to play a generation behind when it comes to video games. For people who might not be willing to shell out $300+ for a Wii U, a $99 price point can be a lucrative offer for a Wii Mini that has a vast library of games that are still easily found at...

    Super Smash (Gamecube Controller/Adapter)

    HEADS UP: If any of you have been interested in acquiring the Gamecube adapter for Super Smash Bros on Wii U, it looks like the supply issues have been at least somewhat/temporarily remedied. The adapter is now in stock on Amazon and being offered at the list price of $19.99 - woohoo! I tried...

    The NX could remove the optical drive

    I don't think I would be a fan of going to all-digital. I can't imagine the amount of space required to comfortable build a strong library of games without resorting to external storage. I also like having a physical copy of my games - it's part of the experience!

    Are forums obsolete?

    I hope that message boards and forums like this stick around for a long time. I have more thoughts on the subject, but I'll just say that I appreciate the relative anonymity afforded to people on message boards that you don't experience on other social media like Facebook.

    Xenoblade Chronicles X

    Sweetness! I just read that Xenoblade Chronicles has just been released on the Wii U Virtual Console in the UK. Can a North American release be far behind?

    Why didn't MK8 & SSB4 "save" the wii u?

    I would argue that a modern Nintendo console needs Mario Kart and Smash Bros in order to sell units because they are quintessential party games that represent the kind of lighthearted fun Nintendo is known for. It would be a mistake, however, to assert that a great Mario Kart or Smash Bros are...

    Ten first party games the NX desperately needs to succeed

    1.) 3D Mario (in the vein of Mario 64 or Mario Galaxy) 2.) Zelda NX (an exclusive title, not just a port of Zelda U) 3.) Metroid (first person style, in the vein of the Prime series) 4.) Animal Crossing (not a spin off or Amiibo based) 5.) Donkey Kong (in the vein of DK 64, not the Country...

    Tri Force Heroes Do think this will be better than 4 swords?

    I picked up a copy of Four Swords Adventures for the first time about a month or two ago and I've played it a handful of times so far, but I have found the experience to be kind of mediocre, to be honest. I started reading some reviews of the game, however, and I do think the game would be...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X

    I probably wouldn't mind shelling out $50 for it. Where did you find it for that price? I see it going for $85 on Amazon. I haven't seen anything cheaper than $65 for a used copy via GameStop.
  19. Emmanuel

    Xenoblade Chronicles X

    I'd be interested in playing the original game if I could get my hands on it, but I'm not willing to shell out that much money for it. I'll keep my eyes open if I see any used copies locally or online that I can get for a decent price. Maybe if I play the new release and fall in love with it, I...

    Xenoblade Chronicles X

    When I saw this game at E3 I had no interest in it because I had never really heard of it before, but the more I look into it, I am definitely interested in picking it up. I will probably wait until after it releases and if the reviews are great then I'll be happy to snatch up a copy. :)

    Was the Wii U worth it?

    With regard to the gamepad, Miyamoto talked recently about how its impact was diminished because between the time of development and release for Wii U, tablets began to improve and flood the market, which made the gamepad seem much less novel. Part of me wonders if Nintendo didn't see this...

    Was the Wii U worth it?

    Wii U has been worth it for me. I bought the console last June for a great deal bundled with New Super Mario Bros U and Luigi U, and I got a download of Wind Waker HD for free. I've been able to relive tons of my favorite classic games via the Virtual Console, and I've gotten multiple free...

    Bayonetta 2

    Heads up: If anyone is interested in snatching up a copy of Bayonetta 2, the game is currently on sale (bundled with Bayonetta 1) at Walmart.com for only $44.97, normally $60. I noticed earlier today that the game is currently going for almost $70 on Amazon, which suggests to me that there might...

    Zelda games you've grown to love

    Zelda II sort of fits this bill for me. Not that I didn't enjoy it as a kid, but I enjoy it more now. It's quirky and fun.

    Favorite moment in Wind Waker?

    How about the moment where you catch Lenzo and Minenco by surprise and snap a photo to capture their secret romance? Or just generally listening to Minenco ramble on about her flawless skin and how beautiful she is? lol.

    OoT/MM Virtual Console?

    I suppose everyone knows this by now, but Ocarina of Time was released on the Virtual Console last week - I was so excited to see it! I picked it up right away but haven't started playing it yet. I imagine that we won't see a re-release of Majora's Mask until sales for the 3DS version die down...

    Breaking the cycle

    By my reading of Demise's words, Link's spirit and Zelda's bloodline are indeed bound to the curse, but their continued existence is not necessarily the means by which the cycle is allowed to continue. Even if the last of Zelda's line perished from the earth, the evil of Ganondorf/Demise would...

    OoT/MM Virtual Console?

    For others who may be interested, Nintendo of Europe has apparently announced that Ocarina of Time will be available on the Virtual Console beginning July 2nd. No word yet on whether those of us in the states will be so fortunate, but my fingers are crossed... :)...

    Should Atheism be implemented into Zelda Games?

    I can't imagine the game incorporating atheists into the game without either demonizing them or making a politically-charged statement about atheism IRL. I don't think the purpose would be well served. On the other hand, if we ever see a more futuristic Zelda, it might be interesting to imagine...

    The Minish Cap - Discussion, 2015

    I would basically agree with your assessment. I was really impressed with The Minish Cap as a handheld title on my first play through. I did try to go back again a year or two later but couldn't get into it the same way. Even now, part of me wants to go back and play it again, but anytime I...

    Do bosses make or break a dungeon for you?

    I rarely am bothered enough to remember the weaker bosses. The really exciting or challenging bosses are much more likely to stand out to me. I will usually remember the bosses I thought were cool before any that seemed to miss the mark.

    Should princess Zelda be less damsel-prone in future games?

    I'd definitely like to see more Zelda games sans the damsel-in-distress story mechanic. We've all saved the girl plenty of times - I think if Nintendo can be a bit more innovative and move beyond that we can get a deeper, more compelling storyline with more fleshed out characters.

    OoT/MM Virtual Console?

    What do you guys think are the chances of seeing Ocarina of Time or Majora's Mask making their way to the Wii U Virtual Console? I know that you can get them on the old Wii VC, but Nintendo also has a vested interest in selling the remasters of this game for 3DS, and I could see an old N64 port...

    Origins of the Hero of Hyrule? (NES Link)

    I'd speculate that Link from LoZ might not be from Hyrule exactly, similar to how Link from Twilight Princess was from the Ordona Provice and not from "Hyrule proper." At least, this could be a possible explanation for why we never see Link's home on Hyrule's map. (On the other hand, we don't...

    How important is Princess Zelda to the franchise?

    I don't think the franchise would survive without her. Zelda is an essential part of the lore that makes the games compelling. I don't think she needs to be an integral part of every entry into the series, but as a bearer of the Triforce and the perpetual reincarnation of the goddess Hylia, it...

    Breath of the Wild Is Zelda U different enough (aesthetically)?

    I think it would be pretty jarring to see something like the Master Cycle in a true Zelda game, but I've always thought it would be interesting to see what Hyrule might look like in a more modern era. If Nintendo were to ever make that type of transition, even for one game, maybe they could do...

    Twilight Princess revisited

    It's been quite a while since I've played Twilight Princess, but last time I played the game, I remember thinking that the beginning of the game where the story is being set up and you are completing what essentially is a tutorial... that entire section moved extremely slow. I kept feeling like...

    Hyrule Warriors Irritated

    Ah, I hadn't caught the reference to the NES original with the 255 level cap - so perhaps this is the end. I certainly hope so. I guess I feel similar to Spirit. The Adventure mode is not nearly as satisfying to me as the Legend mode was. It took me forever to figure out exactly what I was...

    Well, this is stupid, but in "Sweet Dreams" by Eurythmics, the part where they sing "Some of them want to use you, some them want to be used by you", etc...

    What video games have made you cry like a baby?

    Perhaps Ocarina of Time, when the adventure is over and Navi flies away. I can't think of too many games where I've had a strong, actual emotional investment in the characters. Even OoT... it was less about the characters, and more about the finality and sense of accomplishment.

    Banjo Kazooie spiritual successor

    Gah, I so miss the N64 era. Banjo Kazooie/Banjo Tooie are two of my favorite games of all time. I've only ever really had Nintendo consoles (save for a Sega Genesis once upon a time), so I missed out on Nuts and Bolts. My boyfriend recently got an Xbox 360 and I found a used copy at Gamestop, so...

    Hyrule Warriors Irritated

    Beyond Hyrule

    I've always imagined that Hyrule represents more or less a single continent. I think Hyrule's kingdom represents all or nearly all of the known world in the same way that the Roman Empire had conquered nearly all of the known world at that point in history. There is bound to be more out there...
