News: March 2019 Pokemon Direct!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Gotta Announce 'Em All!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Pokemo10

Hey gamers, Bre here with some quick news on the new Pokemon direct! As I am sure some of you have seen by now a new Pokemon Direct has hit the web, and boy did it bring some happiness to Pokemon gamers like me!

For those of you who have not seen the direct yet, I got the fill in on all the details you need to know! First off the new Pokemon game for the switch was announced given the titles “Pokemon Shield” and “Pokemon Sword.” This brings in a whole another generation of Pokemon and a new region to catch them in! It’s been a while since we saw a new generation of Pokemon, and while rumors were swirling around for a while now we were beginning to think this would never come!

With a new generation of Pokemon and a new region of course comes new starters and what would a Pokemon game be if the starters weren’t of the grass, water, and fire type. The first starter we are going to talk about goes by “Grokey” and is the grass starter that is a Monkey form that starts off in its first evolution as an Grass
and fighting type.

The second starter we got announced was a cute little rabbit/bunny named “Scorbunny” who judging by his name you can probably guess is a Fire and fighting type. And let’s not forget our new little water friend “Sobble” who brings up the three starting types with Water and fighting. These three new starters already have stolen our hearts, and are bound to bring along lots of fun and trouble.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Starters-720x405

The last new thing we can cover that we been told for now is the name of the new region the game will take place in named “the Galar Region.” This region consists of all different types of land from treacherous mountains, to snow covered areas, and more. This region is bound to bring upon new journeys and fun times. As for now, we don’t know too much about the new land, but with time we are sure Nintendo will give us more.

Welp that’s it for name gamers, I’ll see you next time!

Review: Pokemon ~ Let's Go Eevee Edition (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Let's Go Pokefun!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Hi there gamers, Bre here with another review for another great game from our friends at Nintendo! This time around I will be reviewing “Let’s Go Eevee” for the Nintendo Switch. Let’s Go Eevee is a fun game that takes the classic tales from three of our beloved past Pokémon games, “Pokémon: Blue, Red, and Yellow” and combines them into one game full of new twists, characters, and more.

Let’s Go Eevee takes you on the journey to becoming a Pokémon master by traveling roads to several towns and battling in gyms that feature in eight different types of Pokémon forcing you to master all different types of Pokémon and learn the ins and outs of the Pokémon world. The game comes with an awesome story mode that makes you work for what you want but keeps a mystery about while playing through the story piece by piece. The last bit of fun this game offers is in the fact that you can trade for alternate forms of certain Pokemon. Overall, I love this game, and cannot wait to explore the rest of the story from within, as my process continues I’ll post updates.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Pros of this game:
- Allows for co-op with friends
- - awesome storyline
- Features many lovable characters from the past games
- Brings a bit of the past with the new
- Poke ball plus lets you bring your game from GO to Let’s Go
- new fun alolan forms of your favorite Pokemons


Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Poke-ball-plus.jpg.optimal

Now that we have talked about the positives of the game let’s get down to the down side cause as we all know with the good always comes some bad sadly. One downside to this game is it tends to fall a bit shorter than the older games, and some people say that the throwing technique makes it too easy.

While I think the throwing, technique is great I can see where this makes the game a bit less fun, and why the older trainers may like the classic form back. The other downside is that if you walk your Pokémon in your poke ball plus too long it can overpower the game taking some of the fun/challenge out people are saying. While these may not seem like major concerns these are things that the classic Pokémon gamers have brought up.

Cons to this game:
- Overpowering by Poke ball Plus
- Throwing technique makes catching too easy
- Co-op can only be done via local mode



Bottom-Line: this game is very fun to me, and I love that it combines Pokémon Go with Let’s Go, and that I can replay through parts of the classic games as I did miss the first in the series sadly. I do believe this game was a great way to connect the two Pokémon versions, and I give it a good level of recommendation!

Review: The Legend of Zelda ~ A Link To The Past (Wii U VC)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Link To The Amazing!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Wiiu_s13

Developed and published by Nintendo, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past returns to the formula that the original game in the series utilized, but adds to it in many ways and all of which are positive improvements! Continue reading our review to find out why we think you should add this retro game to your Wii U Virtual Console collection of games!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Wiiu_s14

The story in ALTTP is by and far better than the one that the original The Legend of Zelda title had and showed that RPG's weren't the only genre that could be epic in this regard! The gameplay while similar to that of the NES original added quite a few changes such as eight-way movement, much more complex equipment, weapon and equipment upgrades, and even an entire second world.

The game is also quite lengthy for an SNES game that's not a JRPG, clocking in at over 20 hours in length! The controls are also easy to learn which is always a good thing! Another good thing is the game runs much better on the Wii U than it did on the original Wii with far less stuttering and frame-rate drops.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Wiiu_s15

The controls in the game are quite good, but we highly recommend using the Wii Classic Controller Pro for the best experience. The game's Off-TV play is executed perfectly with a great balance in its sound-level and ALTTP looks absolutely gorgeous on the Wii U Gamepad.

The audio-visual presentation is also superb with gorgeous cartoonish graphics that are exceptionally detailed for an SNES title, and the animations are fluid with rarely any dropped frames. The soundtrack is also pure bliss with catchy chiptunes and surprisingly good sound effects!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Wiiu_s16

Bottom-Line: With an amazing and lengthy story , excellent gameplay, great controls, and a nearly flawless audio-visual presentation, The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past has aged gracefully and is just as fun today as it was when it was released well over 25 years ago! The better frame-rate compared to the Wii Virtual Console release makes this the most definitive re-release of the game thus-far! We give The Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past for the Wii U Virtual Console a perfect level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch Retail)



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Smashing Fun!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Super-smash-bros-ultimate-walkthrough-guide-shacknews_feature

The long-anticipated wait for the game everyone’s been talking about is finally over! Super Smash Brothers Ultimate is finally here, and we got all the fun tidbits for you, along with the down sides to the game. I remember back when Super Smash Brothers Ultimate was first officially announced the whole Nintendo fan was so pumped for this game! As time grew closer, and we all waited in anticipation for the game to be out, little snippets began coming out giving us glimpses and previews into the game without spoiling the game itself. Fast forward some, and now we’re here the game in hands and time to play.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

The day this game came out I went out personally after work and picked the game up at my local store. I couldn’t wait to get home and play the story mode/battle my boyfriend in the game. Now I love playing this game, and the upsides include a wide variety of characters from all our favorite game worlds such as: Super Mario Brothers, Fire Emblem, Kirby, and more! Then came the announcement of new characters from the newest games that had taken over our hearts from Nintendo such as: Inklings from Splatoon!

Then there’s the return of some of our favorite classic fighters from past Smash games such as: Ice Climbers, Fox, and many more! The roster for this game is pure amazing and brings in a few new lovable characters even such as: Isabelle from Animal Crossing, Piranha Plant from Super Mario, and shadow fighters such as Daisy or Dark Pit! This game has a fighter for every Nintendo fan’s choosing, and with five more to come the excitement is building up even more!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

The next positive to this game that I want to bring up is the selection of stages and music have become even larger! We even received some new stages including the beloved “Moray Towers” from Splatoon bringing more lands to wreak havoc on with your friends while slapping each other around for the sake of a good time! In fact, there are over 100 stages to select from taking you to countries and lands both near and far in this game!

Now for the main positive to this game the amazing story mode that comes within the game called “World of Light.” You start out as Kirby being the only character to not be wiped out when the land gets taken over by master hand, and his army of evil hands. From here you must explore the towns/areas around you to defeat the evil shadow forms of your friends that have overtaken their bodies and beat them to bring your friends back to the light. As you travel through your battle you encounter your friends some being the main characters, and others side characters called “spirits” that can enable special abilities that can will help you along your journey to bring all your friends back, and defeat whatever master hand’s evil plan may be before he can put the plan into action fully! It’s up to you and Kirby to bring back the light to the “World of Light!”

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

This game seems to have it all from amazing characters, amazing stages, an amazing storyline and music, to the amazing graphics to go along with all of this! Though there are some downsides to any game and one major one that I’ve found comes when you are playing multiplayer! Once in online mode you can choose to smash or spectacle, if you choose to smash you then can choose quickplay or arena’s, in quick play you can choose to go solo or do co-op with a local friend which is great and ensures to bring a good time to any party!

The downside comes if you choose arena mode, in which you can either join a friend’s arena or make your own for the fun! Once you are inside the arena you choose your character and set up, but you can only play one player inside arena there is no option for local or online co-op in arena mode. This is a downfall as if you have two people together and then want to play with online friends you must take turns battling because there is no other option right now. Will this be fixed in the future? It’s hard to say, but I know that I sure hope so.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Wrapping this all up here are the key notes for this game:

Pros:

Wide roster of characters and stages, wide selection of music, great graphics, and makes fun for most parties!


Cons:

Multiplayer is limited to quickplay for now, and controls can be a bit tricky compared to past games


Some things we did not touch on but may be cool to know:

- Spirits can be used in multiplayer if wanted
- There is an amazing story mode
- Five new fighters are still to come but must be paid for via DLC and only one has been officially announced so far!

Score: ★★★★★★★★★☆ 9/10

Kanto Say No To These Cute Mons!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

New Pokemon releases have always been a huge affair, there's no denying that, but being able to play the first generation games in glorious HD with tons of updates and new features is nothing short of mesmerizing! The updated gameplay formula makes the games feel like they're completely new and the story definitely brings a sense of nostalgia to longtime fans of the series

These reasons are why Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon: Let's Go Eevee earn the number three spot for the best games of 2018!

Review: Mario & Luigi ~ Partners in Time (Wii U VC)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Baby Splash In Time!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Wiiu_s10

Developed and published by Nintendo, Mario & Luigi: Partners in time is the second title in the now long-running Mario & Luigi series and adds to the formula of Superstar Saga with time-travelling shananigans with the now-famous Baby Mario Bros. in tow. Is this zany title as good as its predecessor? We think so and here's why:

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Wiiu_s11

The story in Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is just as epic as you'd expect from a true to form Mario RPG. Of course there's plenty of humour to be had, but unlike recent Mario RPG's Bowser is not the main focus as an antagonist, much like in Superstar Saga and Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door there's a cast of refreshingly unique antagonists to tackle which is a breath of fresh air to be quite honest.

the gameplay is revamped from Superstar Saga, there's a time-travelling element, plus the baby bros. join the team, giving you four different allies at your command at once which adds alot of depth to the gameplay formula. Puzzle solving plays a big role in Partners in Time and ctn be challenging at times while the battles are substantially more difficult than those in Superstar Saga.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Wiiu_s12

Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is also quite a long game, clocking in at over 40 hours in length. The controls are also superb which is always a good thing. The audio-visual presentation while simple in nature are quite beautiful and fit the game like a glove, while the soundtrack is far better than the one in Superstar Saga. Overall the game looks and sounds like pure perfection!

Bottom-Line:

With a wacky and highly enjoyable story, superb gameplay, and flawless audio-visual presentation, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time is the pinnacle of perfection and one of the best DS games we've had the opportunity to play and as such we give the game a perfect level of recommendation!

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Super Mario Odyssey (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Grand Theft Odyssey!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Large

Developed and published by Nintendo, Super Mario Odyssey is Mario's latest 3D platforming adventure and as expected we enjoyed every minute of the game, however we couldn't help, but notice that the game didn't feel as magical as previous 3D Mario titles, why is that? Keep reading our review to find out why.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Large

There's no doubt that Nintendo pulled out all the stops with the production value of Super Mario Odyssey and it shows between the incredible storytelling, incredible audio-visual presentation, and sheer scope, however the game lost something so much more important in the process.

Super Mario Odyssey lacks the charm of previous Mario games, the level designs are lacking compared to most previous entries in the series and the game is quite honestly, ridiculously easy to the point where it felt like we were playing a game geared towards young children.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Large

That's not all, the gameplay is sort of mission-based like Grand Theft Auto and unfortunately falls victim to the same issues that plagued the Jak & Daxter games after the initial title, The Precursor Legacy and feels like a completely different series now.

Don't get us wrong it's a solid game, but it doesn't feel like a Mario game at its core and that's a serious problem when you're talking about a series that was not only at the top of the sales charts with every release in the franchise, but arguably the most beloved series in the video game industry, it honestly makes no sense why Nintendo would choose to reinvent the series at this time.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Large

The controls in the game are very responsive and easy to learn which is always a good thing in our opinions.

Visually Super Mario Odyssey looks absolutely spectacular and really pushes the limit of the Nintendo Switch's hardware especially in docked mode, but it still looks great in handheld mode as well!

The soundtrack is quite varied as well with some pretty amazing vocal songs, however the music in the game's many levels was somewhat lacking, which was quite disappointing, but even so it's still great to listen to.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Large

Bottom-Line:

While the gameplay and story is solid, Super Mario Odyssey reinvented the series despite there being no need to do so and in the process has lost some of that special Nintendo magic the series has possessed for decades. While the controls and audio-visual presentation are fantastic we still give the game the lowest score of any mainstream release in the Mario series to-date. While the game is solid it was a major disappointment and as such we give Super Mario Odyssey a solid level of recommendation.

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10

Feature: Farewell Miiverse ~ Reanfan's Farewell Letter To Miiverse!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Bon Voyage Old Friend!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Original

It's been five long years since Nintendo's foray into social media, Miiverse launched on Wii U and it has since ballooned into a massive hit especially after the app was added to the 3DS, and though several restrictions added since 2015 have severely hampered the service, it is still going surprisingly strong in its twilight days leading up to its closure in less than two weeks. What does this mean for you? Well even if you don't use the app if you own a Wii U you will no longer be able to add friends to your friends list, this also means that you'll be unable to make new friends and send in-game PM's in games such as Monster Hunter 3: Ultimate as well. Basically it will mean that you'll have to make due with any current friends on your list for online experiences so I suggest you don't remove anyone from your list if you plan on having any online gaming sessions on your Wii U in the future.

The 3DS is safe from this issue, since its friends list is tied to your handheld's friend code instead of Miiverse. Once Miiverse closes this will also render the Miiverse stage in Super Smash Bros. Wii U & 3DS completely useless which is another major reason why important offline available content shouldn't be tied to features that will be removed in the twilight years of a console. This is just the tip of the ice berg though as nearly 115 Wii U games feature Miiverse support within the game itself such as Super Mario Maker, Splatoon, The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD / Breath of The Wild, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Super Mario 3D World, Hyrule Warriors, New Super Mario/Luigi U, Shovel Knight, etc, etc. All of these games and many, many more will have very cool and unique features stipped from them upon Miiverse's closure which is definitely going to hurt the enjoyment factor of the games, but in some more serious cases will make some content impossible to obtain "I'm looking at you Xenoblade Chronicles X". Yes that's right, the two raid bosses in Xenoblade Chronicles X and their exclusive materials will be lost upon Miiverse's closure which will prevent players from creating a couple of the most powerful Skells in the game as well as some of the best weapons in each job class.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Original

Regardless of the major flaws and drawbacks regarding the closure of Miiverse the social media experience it provided was one of the most unique and intriguing I have ever experienced and the colorful personalities of its myriad of members always put a smile on my face. One of the greatest things about Miiverse was that it was a gathering place of many highly talented and aspiring artists and the beauty of the art graced almost every member's timeline! There were plenty of hilarious moments such as the discovery of the aptly named Luigi Death Stare in Mario Kart 8, the creation of the facepalm-worthy meme character Bigley, and who can forget the annoyed developers talking smack about Nintendo's sudden announcement that Miiverse was going to be closing in November? Bottom line Miiverse was unique and incredible in so many ways and will be missed by our crew.

Anyways be sure to tell us about your thoughts about and past experiences you've had with Miiverse in our comments section below!

Review: Splatoon 2 (Switch Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Squids or Kids Too!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Developed and published by Nintendo, Splatoon 2 is the sequel to the fairly popular Wii U shooter Splatoon which ended up being one of the top-selling games on the ill-fated dual-screen home console. Does this sequel hold a candle to its predecessor? Continue reading our review to find out!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Arguably the weakest aspect of the original Splatoon title that released on the Wii U was the single player Hero Mode which had only a handful of short stages that were too similar to one-another and were fairly easy to beat. The whole mode could be finished within an hour or two, but luckily Hero Mode in Splatoon 2 is much more robust with longer, more difficult stages, and much more variety to the tasks. You can easily spend 10-20 hours in the mode this time around which is fantastic news for any squid!

The gameplay in Splatoon 2 is mostly the same as its predecessor, however a few new techniques have been added such as a power shield to guard against certain attacks and of course new weapons. Multiplayer is as fun as you'd expect, however we did experience major instability and frequent disconnects while playing online which wasn't a problem with the original title on Wii U.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Salmon Run is a fun and challenging mode that will really test your mettle and can earn you some good equipment should you do well at the mode! The controls are good, but ironically the original Splatoon was much better in this regard. You'll find out why in our review of Splatoon (Wii U Retail) which will be going live early next month.

There are alot of rehashed stages alongside new ones, unfortunately alot of the old stages have been simplified and many good hiding spots in those stages have been removed which is a shame. Splatfests are the main attraction in this series and are basically a competitive poll where you vote for your favorite poll option which will basically become your team and people on both teams splat it out to prove who is top squid in the arena!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

The major drawback of Splatoon 2 and the Nintendo Switch in-general is the lack of voice chat which can only be done if you have a mobile device that is compatible with Nintendo's voice chat app for Switch which is just insane in our opinions. Sure almost everyone in Japan has a mobile device, but elsewhere the numbers are as low as 35% -40% which means that depending on region there will be large groups of players online who won't be able to strategise with their team members which could give certain teams a clear-cut advantage.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Visually the game looks great with a better resolution than the previous game in the new series, however we did notice that in certain returning stages there were certain details missing that made them seem less impressive. The upside is that you'd likely miss these details during a heated match, but it still is a disappointing downgrade. The soundtrack on the other hand is just as good as the first game's and the Squid Sisters music videos are just as fun to watch and listen to which will be music to every squid's ears we're sure!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, solid controls, fantastic single player and multiplayer modes, and a flawless soundtrack, Splatoon 2 is a game that any Switch owner should thoroughly enjoy, however downgraded returning stages that are less detailed and are missing many hiding spots, as well as the lack of actual in-game voice chat options really hurt the game's overall score, but regardless we give Splatoon 2 a good level of recommendation!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is a fantastic open-world adventure game that completely reinvents the franchise.

Breath of The Wild is an open-world adventure game and possesses a massive world with tons of secrets and hidden areas to explore and despite being much smaller in scale than Xenoblade Chronicles X, Nintendo did a fantastic job with the topography of the world in the game to make you truly feel like an explorer! This is the game's greatest strength, however it's also its greatest weakness as well since the game nearly does away with complex puzzle solving and dungeons in favor of smaller and easier shrines.

These mini dungeons number in the 100's, but are substantially simpler than a typical dungeon in the Zelda series. With the exception of this, however Breath of The Wild is a fantastic entry in the series and other aspects such as the story-telling as well as sidequests and pseudo guild quests are superb and will keep you entertained for many hours!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also the first game in the Zelda series to have full voice acting in most of the important story scenes which gives a breath of fresh air to the narrative of the game! The difficulty of the game is fairly easy for the most part, though it can become somewhat challenging at times. For those who want a challenge, there's a difficulty setting for that! The item scavenging and pet system are extremely rich and can make exploration extremely fun for completionists!

You can also cook and craft items in the game as well. This system is somewhat limited, but is enjoyable nonetheless! The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is also by far the longest game in the Zelda series clocking in at over 300 hours to complete one hundred percent!

The controls in the game a flawless and are a piece of cake to learn which is always a very good thing. The visuals in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild are absolutely gorgeous and even give Xenoblade Chronicles X a run for its money in-terms of the best looking Wii U games! The environments as well as the character/enemy models are intricately detailed and the Cel-Shading gives the game a breathtaking art-direction unlike anything we've ever seen before!

The soundtrack is also absolutely flawless with fully orchestrated dynamic tracks that not only fit the mood of the game, but also change in rhythm and tempo depending on what's happening around Link which adds to the game's atmosphere!

The Switch Difference:

Besides a slightly higher resolution and better frame rate on the Nintendo Switch version when docked both games are nearly identical. The only difference we can think of is that the Switch port has better textures and object models, but overall you'll have an amazing experience with the game regardless of which console you play it on!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Bottom-Line:

With an incredible story, superb gameplay, and flawless controls, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild will draw any Wii U or Switch owners to the game while the unparalleled audio-visual presentation will keep players coming back time and time again. Honestly the only drawback that the game has is that it is too different from the other games in the series, however in-terms of open-world games, Breath of The Wild is in a league of its own which is why we give the game a perfect level of recommendation to any and all Switch and Wii U owners!

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of The Wild is a fantastic open-world adventure game that completely reinvents the franchise. And while it's an excellent title it feel like it's lost some of that Zelda magic. Despite this we still feel the game is one of the best titles in the franchise.

WiiWareWave News: Our Website Will Become TheGamerResort Near The End of October.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Our New Name Has Been Decided!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Header10

Earlier this month we asked you, our loyal members what you wanted us to name our website now that we've become an all-encompassing video games press website and a good deal of you voted for TheGamerResort. We then sent a newsletter poll to the members who didn't participate in the preliminaries and out of 225 votes 198 were in favor of renaming WiiWareWave, TheGamerResort! So we've heard your opinions and have decided to go with TheGamerResort as our new community name! So in less than a month "we'll let you know the exact day at least two weeks in advance", our new domain will be http://www.TheGamerResort.com

@GeekyGamerZack @KingreX32 We need a banner ready within the next 10-15 days and if you can't get access to a laptop even a simple temporary banner created and uploaded from your mobile device would be a good short-term solution!

Anyways what do you think of our new name and domain going into the future? Do you think it will help us grab a larger group of followers? Do you personally know anyone who might be tempted to join us with our new general gaming mantra and domain? As always be sure to let us know in our comment section below!

Retro: Graphic novel version of Nintendo Power's "Super Mario Adventures" coming this fall


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

October 12th, actually

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Unknow10

In the early 1990s the Nintendo Power magazine published a series of comics featuring Mario and Luigi inspired by the now-classic game Super Mario World. Now the collection of said comics is coming in graphic novel form and will publish on October 12th 2016. If you're a fan of these comics, it should be worth the $14.99 it costs (and right now it's only $10.59!)

You can find the graphic novel here

Financial: Pokémon Go Has Made Nintendo More Valuable Than Sony?


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pokémon Go Makes Sony a No?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 630x12

Hey there PlayStation gamers, Bre here with another PS update.  This update is a bit different then my usual updates, it deals with not only Sony but Nintendo too. So the news I have for you today is that the new popular application for your phone known as “Pokémon Go” has now helped Nintendo become more valuable than Sony. While this may not come to a shock to most of you, there are still some people that still hold hope that Sony will stay above Nintendo.

The new app for your phone gets you out and moving by having you search for Pokémon all around your town, then trying to catch them, all while leveling up and choosing your gym. I can say I am fond of Pokémon Go myself, but I also am fond of Sony so this puts me a tight squeeze. Though this may be the straw that brings Nintendo back from the Wii U somewhat flop, but at the same time Sony will is right behind fighting for their title with things such as the PS4K coming out soon. Which will be the winner? I guess we’ll wait and see, as for now Nintendo remains the champion.

Review: Star Fox Zero (Wii U Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Hero or A Zero?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 885x14

Developed by Platinum Games and published by Nintendo, Star Fox Zero is a unique on-the-rails shooter like no other in the series! But is this a good thing or bad? Continue reading our review to find out the answer to this question and so much more:

The gameplay in Star Fox Zero is very similar to most other cannon titles in the series, however there is no doubt that the game is far more robust and refined of an experience than its predecessors! First of all there are many new vehicles and tools to advance through the game's many stages including returning favorites such as the Land Rover and Submarines and new ones such as a mecha version of the Arwing and a drone which features a neat easter egg that we won't spoil!

Speaking of the drone sections while they certainly make good use of the Wii U Gamepad they're extremely difficult and feel more like a chore to take on. We'd have preferred these sections be at least a little more enjoyable, but as they are now they just aren't.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 885x15

The game also features a robust achievement system and is it challenging! Some achievements are fairly straightforward, while others require a literal miracle to achieve which is great for replay value! The enemies in Star Fox Zero are quite interesting, however the controls and certain Gamepad features are very awkward and make the game feel like a chore to play which is a very bad thing and hurts our overall opinions of the game.

Visually the game looks decent enough and the frame-rate is okay for the most-part, however for a Wii U title the worlds are quite barren and the graphics in-general look like an early PS3 game, which is unfortunate given how gorgeous games such as Xenoblade Chronicles X, Tokyo Mirage Sessions, and Bayonetta look on the Wii U.

The sound-track is excellent and really fits the mood of the game, but recycled sound effects and voice-overs from Star Fox 64 make the game feel quite unoriginal which again, hurts our overall opinions of the game.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 885x16

Bottom-Line:

With great albeit flawed gameplay, somewhat difficult controls that take hours to grow accustomed to, and a somewhat disappointing audio-visual presentation, Star Fox Zero is a solid game that could have been so much better. Despite being the weakest title in the series we still think the game deserves a solid level of recommendation!

Price: $49.99/"$59.99 With Star Fox Guard"

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★☆☆☆ 7/10

E3: Nintendo Announced Ever Oasis For The 3DS During Today's Nintendo Treehouse Broadcast!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Build Your Own Oasis City!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Nintendo announced a new IP during their Nintendo Treehouse broadcast this morning! The first title in this new series is called Ever Oasis and it's a cutesy 3DS JRPG that has town building elements, crafting, and gorgeously chibi visuals! At first glance Ever Oasis looks like a family friendly Dark Cloud title which is definitely a good thing in our opinions! For those who don't know Dark Cloud was a JRPG created by Level-5 that was one of the best and most unique JRPG's released on the PS2 and was one of the best PS2 launch titles in our opinions.

In any event the game appears to be coming along quite nicely in its development! Be sure to check-out the trailer of the game above and feel free to leave us your thoughts in our comment section below!

AVG Discussion: Ichigofan On What He Wants To See From Nintendo During This Year's E3!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

More Reveals Please!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Nintendo%203e3%202016_zpswfuxd2ee

Nintendo has made some rather strange choices for E3 this year by doing away with their traditional E3 broadcast, focusing primarily on a single game with some other already known content being shown off. This certainly doesn't mean that we won't get a few surprises along the way, but the key is to keep your expectations in-check.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

These are some of my hopes for Nintendo @E3 based on their current plans for this year!

Nintendo needs to have a nindie sizzle reel to showcase upcoming indie titles releasing on the Wii U and 3DS.

Show footage of some of the more promising looking indie titles releasing soon including Freedom Planet 2, Soul Saga, Earthlock: Festival of Magic, YIIK, Citadale: Gate of Souls, The Next Penelope, Tumblestones, etc.

Reveal a few new first party eShop esclusives for the Wii U hopefully with something Mario or Zelda related to help flesh-out this year's release schedule!

Localize several Japanese only titles on the Wii U VC to appease the die hard fans and again fill-in the 2016 release schedule.

Release Mother 3 in the West! In 2013 Earthbound aka Mother 2 was released on the Wii U VC, in 2014 Mother 3 was hinted at, in 2015 Earthbound Beginnings aka Mother 1 was released on the Wii U VC, so it'd make sense if Earthbound Endings aka Mother 3 is released on the Wii U VC this E3!

Add GCN, TG-16/CD, and NEOGEO to the Wii U VC service as the final systems to launch on the service "at least on Wii U"!

Announce more DLC for Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros., Super Mario Maker, Splatoon, Hyrule Warriors for Wii U and DLC for games that haven't received any yet such as Mario Tennis, Star Fox Zero, Super Mario 3D World, and Pokkén Tournament.

A demo of Zelda U should be released during E3 immediately after the announcement!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Of course I doubt that all of that will actually happen, but even if only 4-5 of the items on my list are checked that would make for a wonderful E3 surprise! Anyways what do you hope will be announced by Nintendo during this year's E3? Which items on our wishlist do you hope end up happening? As always be sure to let us know in our comment section below!

Review: Bravely Second: End Layer (3DS Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Brave Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x30

Developed by Square Enix and published by Nintendo, Bravely Second: End Layer is a massive JRPG for the 3DS and has had quite a bit of controversy regarding the censorship of the game in the west, but have these changes ruined the experience of the game? We don't think so and here's why:

Bravely Second: End Layer and its predecessor before it were a return to the roots of what made early Final Fantasy titles so great and are easily some of Square Enix's best efforts since the PSX era! The game picks up sometime after the ending of the original Bravely Default title in a world that is in the middle of huge changes. Most of the new job classes are given to you as you progress through the game's lengthy story, while the many returning job classes are earned through side-quests which is a great way to handle the job system in our opinions!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x33

The battle system has also been revamped from the first Bravely Default title with several new additions, such as Bravely Second which freezes time during battle, but can only be used once every 24 hours unless you purchase an SP potion using irl money. We aren't fond of that, however the game is easy enough if you're sufficiently leveled even without resorting to using Bravely Second, so we give the feature a free pass.

You can also summon friends' characters in battle to aid you in a pinch, these summons can, at times be extremely useful as you can summon friends who are at a much higher level than yourself early in the game which can allow you an optional free pass if you get stuck in a boss battle that you cannot win at your current level. The game itself isn't all that difficult as long as you aren't terribly under-leveled or facing a unique breed of monsters known as Ba'al's "more about that later" but it's incredibly lengthy and engaging with over 50 hours worth of gameplay and 30 unique job classes!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x31

There's a ton of optional features as well including toy making which can net you a ton of in-game currency later in the game, rebuilding the Lunar Base which unlocks new items and skills, and Ba'al busting which allows you to face unique bosses with a crazy amount of health in a lengthy survival battle. These Ba'al's can be weakened by attacking them with ships on the Lunar Base which takes quite a longtime, however the payoff is worth it in-terms of the monster's reduced health!

The game has been heavily censored in its Western release, however the core of the game is still intact and the main story is still mostly intact in its original form so despite our dislike of major changes occurring during localization, we feel that the game has NOT been changed to the point that it's harmful to the game itself.

The controls in Bravely Second: End Layer are flawless and easy as pie to learn which is always a positive for any game. Visually the game pushes the 3DS to its absolute limits with a gorgeous fully 3D world filled with incredibly detailed and intricate dungeons, and unique characters and enemies! The soundtrack is also among the best we've heard from a Square Enix title in years! What's even more impressive is the fact that the game is almost fully voiced so you'll feel like you're watching an anime series during all of the main story's cut-scenes which is quite a rare feature for a 3DS RPG!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x32

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay and a fantastic story, Bravely Second: End Layer is a force to be reckoned with on the 3DS! That along with the flawless controls and top-notch audio-visual presentation make the game one of the best JRPG's currently available on the 3DS! The major censorship, while unnecessary and annoying in our opinions, has done very little to hurt the overall enjoyability of the game. Bravely Second: End Layer is a game that any JRPG fan who owns a 3DS, should purchase! As for us this game receives a nearly perfect level of recommendation!

Price: $39.99

Score: ★★★★★★★★★½ 9.5/10

Review: Paper Mario (Wii U VC)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mamamia! What A Spicy "And Sweet" Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Review by @Ichigofan and @Jnes5.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x25

Bowser has invaded the Star Haven, stole the Star Rod and has imprisoned the seven Star Spirits who guarded the Star rod! Now Bowser's fortress becomes attached to Princess Peach's castle and lifts it up to the sky, sadly the Star Rod makes Bowser invincible, so it's up to mario to save the seven Star Spirits in order to lend them their power to thwart Bowser once and for all!

Story:

Even though the story isn't anything original, the whole story has quite a cheery and charming tone behind it! The story also has some humor as well, while it's not going to make you die-laughing, it does serve it's purpose of it being very charming and cheery, the game can also change it's tone a little, but not by much, so overall, the story is so good that you can't help, but feel the charming and cheery tone it has us following!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x26

Gameplay:

The game plays like an RPG, but it has it's own unique twist that's makes the mario RPG's a one of a kind! First thing's first, the game takes place in a lot of overworlds, some of which are long and some of which are small, and sometimes it can include physical obstacles in your way and you, as mario, can jump and use his hammer to overcome most of them, however some might require you to think and explore in order to solve them! Not only that, the game also includes "partners", which are your allies who can not only help you fight enemies, but they can help you with the game's puzzles that they can only solve, since many of the game's puzzles and boundaries are based upon the abilities of Mario's partners, you can accumulate partners as they advance into different locations.

You can only have one partner that can accompany Mario in the overworld, but you can interchange between them at any time, and the best part of all, your partners have no HP so that's means that when they take damage, this results in temporary paralysis on them where they cannot attack, but they will never get KO'd, the gameplay on all the overworlds feel like an adventure-oriented puzzle game, and they keep the game from not being just an RPG.

And this is where the uniqueness comes from! One of the things that makes this game unique from some other RPGs is that you can control the actions when mario and a partner or an enemy is going to attack! Fairly early in the game, you will obtain an item called a "Lucky Star" which will give you the ability to use the "Action Command", with this you can influence the power of a move when attacking or defending by timing a button-press accurately or performing some other action command as required, like pressing a button repeatedly, tilting the control stick and letting it go in a certain moment, with this you can double up your attacks and reduce half the damage when you're defending!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x27

This is pretty great and it's definitely worth it because it feels like you're helping mario in this game! Another thing that is unique in the battle system is that Mario and his partners have a capacity called "Flower Points" (FP), which is the equivalent of magic in RPGs, which these can allow you and your partners to perform special moves, but each of these moves can consume a particular number of flower points when performed, so you must choose to use them wisely.

Other things included are the "Star Points", which are the equivalent of experience points, in which unlike other RPGs, you only need to collect 100 of them to level up, and the capacity does not increase in any way, while this might sound easy to level up, here's the thing, when you level up in a certain area full of enemies, those enemies might decrease the number of Star Points they drop but even that, and this is one of the best parts of the game, is that you don't really need to level up in order to proceed! the only thing that you need to rely on, are your skills...and your use of badges!

The badges are items you can collect and each of them have and advantage of helping you in a certain manner, like for example, one badge can increase your attack power, one can increase your health, one can give Mario another special move, some can make you invulnerable to some things, and much much more! Each badge consumes a set number of" Badge Points" (BP), meaning that you can only equip a limited number of badges at a time, so choose which are the ones that you think will help you the most at the moment! Different situations may warrant changing badges to make certain boss battles easier! There is also an on-screen gauge to display Star Energy, which is required to perform another type of move if you saved a star spirit, and each of them have a unique move that can help you in battle, and they can raise your gauge as you advance throughout the game, you can also locate hidden battle upgrades in the game's overworld, which promotes one partner character to a new rank once at a time and they can become stronger as well!

All of this and more, is why the game is really fun and very unique as well! However, even though some overworlds might not be fun, the game is still very great with it's gameplay and uniqueness!

Graphics & Soundtrack:

Since the game is called "Paper Mario", the game's visuals feature two-dimensional character cut-out designs contained within three-dimensional backgrounds, and the 2D characters look really good! They look just like a cartoon, and because of that, they haven't aged at all so they look just as good now as they did when the game first released on the N64! As for the 3D backgrounds...yeah, those are the ones that haven't aged well at all, but the thing is, some of those are so bland, that they weren't all that impressive even when this game was first released. Regardless the game's graphics are nice overall.

The soundtrack of this game is ok, some of the music tracks are very catchy, some of them set a great mood, some of them are decent, some of them are very awesome... as you can see, the soundtrack has a lot of variety when it comes with its quality.

The sounds are cutesy and some of them sound a little bit low quality, but as they are, they sound ok, and as for the voice acting... there isn't any, at all, well except a few mumbles and roars among other simple sound effects, but overall there really isn't any, which is perfectly fine in our opinions!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x29

Presentation:

The game is kind of represented as a storybook, the game is divided in chapters, the game's progression depends upon interaction non-player characters (NPCs), who will often offer clues or details for the next chapter, and as I've said, the game does a good job on having a charming and cutesy tone throughout the entire story.

As for the replayability, this game has a lot of it! You can collect the badges, you can maximise your level, you can collect the star peices, you can play the minigames included in this game, you can do some hidden sidequests, all of this and more are awaiting those of you who are willing to fully explore this game's world, so there is no worries there if you're looking to be busy with a game for awhile!

The Wii U Difference:

The Wii U's emulation of the game is spot-on and looks and sounds a little better than the Wii Virtual Console release of the game. The Off-TV-Play feature and rumble-pak compatibility of the game give the Wii U version of the game a definite edge over the Wii version!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 300x25

Bottom-Line:

Paper Mario 64 is a great mario RPG! The game has some great gameplay and a charming storyline, and even if there are some things that needed a few tweaks, this game is still a must-but for any Wii U owner! You might be skeptical if you REALLY love Super Mario RPG for the SNES or Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door for the GCN, but regardless, don't hesitate and buy this if you like RPGs! and as for us, this game gets a great level of recommendation!

Price: $9.99

Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Grand Hack 'N Slash Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 885x17

Developed by Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja and published by Nintendo, Hyrule Warriors is a Zelda Themed game within Koei-Tecmo's long-running Warriors franchise that beautifully incorporates elements of both franchises into one incredibly enjoyable and not to mention extremely lengthy package! We think that Hyrule Warriors and its DLC are well worth their price and here's why:

The gameplay in Hyrule Warriors is surprisingly complex with a ton of strategy required to beat most of the game's levels. You must protect allies and capture keeps and much more depending on the current battle and mode that you're playing! The game's main mode is story mode where the story of the game takes place "duh". This is where you'll unlock most of the non-DLC characters in the game. The story scenes feel like they are straight from an actual Zelda game as Koei-Tecmo did an excellent job researching the series mythos!

Other modes include the strategic Adventure Mode where you'll tackle battles on a board of the original NES Zelda title or the worlds of other Zelda titles if you downloaded the Majora's Mask or Twilight Princess DLC Packs. Each battle has unique rules and objectives and there's several weapons and characters to unlock! You can also purchase more boards complete with characters, weapons, and new costumes to unlock as relatively cheap DLC.

Then you have Challenge Mode, where you can aim for a high score with challenging missions, most of this mode is locked unless you purchase the Boss Pack DLC, including the Boss Rush, and Ganon's Fury Mode's which are a blast to play! The difficulty of the game starts off very easy, but eventually becomes insanely difficult especially in the DLC packs.

The Gamepad features allow for single-screen multiplayer where one user uses the TV screen and the other uses the Wii U Gamepad which is an amazing feature! Other uses of the Gamepad include Off-TV-Play in single player and can be used to show current ongoing missions and the health of your allied generals which is a very useful tool to have in the game! The controls in Hyrule Warriors are pretty good and shouldn't take players long to learn and they're very intuitive which is very important in such a hectic title!

Visually Hyrule Warriors looks great! It's not the best looking Wii U title, but the stages and character models are very detailed, though they do take a substantial hit when playing multiplayer. Overall the graphics are still above average by a decent margin as far as Wii U titles go! The soundtrack on the other hand is absolutely breathtaking and is among the best that you'll hear from a Wii U title! The music tracks are all remixes from various games in the Zelda series which have been fully orchestrated and sound amazing!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 885x18

Bottom-Line:

With excellent gameplay, great controls, fantastic use of the Wii U Gamepad, incredibly enjoyable multiplayer, a ton of content, above average visuals, and one of the best soundtracks available for the Wii U, Hyrule Warriors is among the best titles currently available on the Wii U so we can't recommend this game enough! If you haven't purchased Hyrule Warriors yet, you should! Anyways we give Hyrule Warriors for the Wii U a perfect level of recommendation!

Price: $59.99

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Review: Starfox Command (Wii U VC)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Guardians of The Galaxy "Pun Intended"!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Starfox%20Command_zpszbhfmpdt

First Announced at E3 2005 under the title Starfox DS Starfox Command was well received on the show floor. Taking advantage of the then new Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection; Command has the distinction of being both the first handheld and Online playable Starfox Title. Starfox Command was developed by Q-games and published by Nintendo. Since it was one of Nintendo's popular 1st party titles it was released on the DS to boost the handhelds sales. Unfortunately the online servers were shutdown in 2015.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave A_med_1

Starfox Command takes place a few years after Starfox Assault and features six different endings based on how you choose to progress through the game. The plot is everyone on the Starfox team has split up and gone their separate ways. Fox is wandering the galaxy doing basically nothing. Falco is a drifter going from job to job. Slippy is engaged to a female frog named Amanda, Peppy is now general of the Cornerian Army and Krystal has joined up with Starwolf after fox told her to leave the team feeling that the life was to dangerous for her. The game introduces a new enemy called the Anglers, giant fish beings that live in the venom sea. Like Andross they too want control of the Lylat system and launch an invasion to get it.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Starfox_big--screenshot_large_zpssgcmiysn

As always you take control of Fox and his arwing to do battle against the Anglers. The game takes you too many different planets and sectors and there are a number of different enemies to fight. As you might have guessed players use the touch screen to control the arwing. The controls are very similar to Metroid Prime Hunters, with a few changes. For right handed people L is to shoot and when you hold it down you do a charged attack. The game is mostly controlled using the touch screen, slide the stylus left to go left or slide the stylus right to go right, draw circles on the touch screen to do barrel rolls these can also be changed to inverted controls.

Unlike other Starfox titles "cough" Starfox 64 "cough" there are no landmaster missions or voice acting. Characters in the game talk in this annoying gibberish chatter. Thanks to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connect service shutting down in 2015, all online features in this game have been rendered useless, which does hurt the game's overall score.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave A_med_2

In the graphics department, Starfox Command look awesome, most likely because at this point in the consoles life people didn't know what the DS was capable of. Even now on the Wii U VC service the game has aged quite well visually and looks every bit as good as Starfox 64! In game play it was interesting what the developers did,the game is a mix of aerial combat and strategy. Let me explain, when you get your mission you don't just jump in and start shooting stuff, you get a map and on the map there are small red dots (in later levels there is fog so you have to clean it away with the stylus first but there is a certain amount you can clean away at one time) these are your enemies.

On the same screen there is the great fox and an arwing, basically you just draw a line to the enemy you want to engage. That line you drew is the arwings flight path, but you cant get carried away drawing too many lines because the longer the line means the more fuel you're using and you only have a certain amount per turn so draw your lines carefully. While your objective is to take out enemies and clear a stage your primary objective is to protect The Great Fox. If any enemies get through and destroy the ship the level is lost and will restart.

Throughout the game you will run into many characters some new most old, like Pigma Dengar, James Mcloud, Andross, Katt Monroe, Octoman from F-zero and many more

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Star-fox-command-20060818111143052_

Bottom-Line:

Overall Starfox Command is a great game. The graphics are great, the control are great, the mix of strategy and classic Starfox combat is awesome and suits the game perfectly, the story and its many endings will make you want to play the game over and over again! Unfortunately for some people getting the controls down can be a pain they take some getting used to. Trying to unlock all the different characters and endings can also be a pain as you have to play through the same levels multiple times. And the removal of the online elements is a real issue as well. Besides all that Starfox Command is a great game and gets a great level of recommendation!

Price: $9.99

WTF: Bravely Second's Western Release Will Have A Completely Linear Story...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Censorship Gone Wild...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Bravel10

Nintendo is no stranger to censorship, be it first party or third party titles, however Bravely Second's western release is the most radical and facepalm-worthy act of censorship that we have EVER seen in a video game in North America or Europe. Basically every decision you make in the western version of the game leads to the good outcome regardless of your choices in the game. This kind of censorship makes absolutely no sense and will likely destroy any chance the game had of selling well in the region, and frankly we can't blame the gamers for boycotting the game in this particular case as it is such an extreme and game-breaking level of censorship.

Anyways what do you all think about this massive change in the western release of Bravely Second? Will you still purchase the game or will you be boycotting it? As always be sure to let us know in our comment section below!

We were asked whether or not you could delete your account with Nintendo Account by a few of our members and it turns out you can, however we wouldn't recommend doing so as you'll lose all data tied to the account including any linked NNID, downloaded titles, in-app purchases, save data, earned My Nintendo points, and more...

This is par for the course as this is how PSN and Xbox Live accounts work as well. There's still no word on whether or not Nintendo will ditch their free online services or if My Nintendo will be a paid rewards program, but we'll let you know when we find out the answers to those questions!

What do you think of this limitation of the Nintendo Account service? As always be sure to let us know in our comment section below!

Review: Golden Sun: The Lost Age (Wii U VC)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Sailing The Seas of Adventure!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Medium15

Developed by Camelot Games and published by Nintendo Golden Sun: The Lost Age is essentially cartridge 2 of the original Golden Sun title as both titles were originally supposed to be one game, but Camelot Games was unable to make the massive title fit in one GBA cartridge so they split the game in two.

You can use the password system in the first title to transfer your save file to Golden Sun: The Lost Age which is a fantastic feature that even works in the Wii U Virtual Console version of the game!

As for the story, Golden Sun: The Lost Age picks up where Golden Sun left off. The story actually feels much more epic this time around and many secrets are revealed about alchemy and the state of the world! Another unique story-related feature is that depending on your actions in the first game, some special story events may occur in Golden Sun: The Lost Age which is extremely cool as it connects the two games together as one single intertwined story!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Medium16

The gameplay is similar to the first Golden Sun title for the most part, but there are several additions to the formula! First of all after a certain point in the game you'll obtain a ship that'll allow you to travel the seas and explore the world. This ship will later be upgraded so it can fly, allowing you to reach even more places in the vast world of the game.

The game features a ton of optional dungeons and some of these are quite challenging. Though the dungeons in general are far more difficult than the one's in the original Golden Sun title as the puzzles are at times extremely complex!

The battle system is more or less the same as it was in Golden Sun, but there are a few changes. First you can now obtain new summons via. Summon Tablets from certain dungeons that allow you to utilize multi-elemental summons that are more powerful than their single-elemental counterparts! Some of these summons can be exceptionally difficult to obtain.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Medium17

The other new feature in combat is the switch system! At a certain point in the story your party will grow to a total of 8 members. You can switch members during combat or if all of your 4 member party dies the other 4 party members will jump in automatically which is a great feature when facing off against some of the stronger bosses in the game!

Golden Sun: The Lost Age also has a New Game+ feature that allows you to replay the game at an adjusted level of difficulty! You can choose whether the game is easier or more difficult and this will affect the stats of the enemies you'll face in battle during that playthrough of the game! The overall length of the game is incredible as well as it'll take most players 100+ hours to complete the game on top of the 80+ hours to complete the first Golden Sun title!

The controls are really tight and are very easy to learn. The graphics are also fantastic for a GBA title and The Lost Age appears to even be a little better than the first Golden Sun title visually! The graphics are a bit more crisp and clear. On the audio side of things, Golden Sun: The Lost Age is absolutely amazing, the sound effects are varied and sound great, and the soundtrack is one of the very best that we've ever heard from a GBA title!

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave Medium18

Bottom-Line:

With top-notch gameplay with over 100 hours worth of gameplay, a fantastic story, excellent controls, and an unparalleled audio-visual presentation for a Gameboy Advance title, Golden Sun: The Lost Age is one game currently available on the Wii U Virtual Console service that every Wii U owner should have in their library of games! We give Golden Sun: The Lost Age a perfect level of recommendation!

Price: $7.99/£6.29/€6.99/¥700

Score: ★★★★★★★★★★ 10/10

Breaking News: A Rough Idea of What The New My Nintendo Account And Rewards System Will Entail!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Nintendo Details Emerge, However No English Translation Is Currently Available...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 630x40

During Nintendo's investors meeting yesterday some new details regarding the upcoming My Nintendo account and rewards program were revealed, however no English translation is available so there maybe some inconsistencies with our report nonetheless this is very big news!

First of all the rewards system will be available in 39 different countries and will have platinum reward points that'll allow you to obtain free goods, games, and downloads. It'll also have gold rewards points that'll allow you to redeem eShop coupons! These points apparently are earned by making purchases, from in-game accomplishments, and socially interacting on Miiverse.

Whether the coupons are discounts on eShop games or a small denomination of eShop credit or perhaps even download tickets for specific eShop titles remains to be seen. Also the reward points sound an awful lot like an achievement-based rewards system which would be absolutely amazing!

We're still unsure if My Nintendo will require a paid subscription, but there doesn't appear to be any info regarding costs for the service.

My Nintendo will also add an account system in the future that'll allow you to store your NNID "or perhaps NNID will be replaced completely?" to the service thus freeing your purchases and friends list from your console. So no more lost games if your console breaks down. Cloud storage is also planned in the future.

The service will be launching next month in North America and Europe! We'll let you know more as soon as a full english translation becomes available in the meantime let us know what you think of the potential My Nintendo features in our comments section below!

Review: Animal Crossing: City Folk (Wii Retail)


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Party Like You're The New Kid in The City!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Welcome to the world of animal crossing and enjoy a world where time and seasons change just as they do in real life. Do whatever you please be it fishing or helping neighbors out. It's completely up to you.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Gameplay:

This game is a sandbox virtual life game that you can pretty much do anything you want after the first 30-40 minutes of playing. You start the game in a bus talking to a chatty cat who will ask you the name of your town and the current date. Afterwards he will ask you several questions that will affect the gender and appearance of your character.

You will then arrive at your town and choose between 4 different empty homes to purchase. Tom Nook will then accept your initial payment which, much to Nooks dismay, is nowhere near enough to pay for the mortgage so he hires you to do several odds and end jobs to help pay for your homes mortgage. Once completed you can do whatever you want.

Theres tons to do in this game such as visiting the city to shop or fishing, bug catching, fossil hunting or even having some friends coming over via wifi connection. Or you can visit their town. This game has holidays just like the real world and there is plenty to do on those days such as getting presents from Jingle the Reindeer or finding the Jack O Lantern to get special furniture for your pad just to name a couple. It's pretty tedious to some but can be quite fun for those who like titles like this.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Graphics & Music:

The graphics in this game are cute and colorful but don't expect much detail or realism in the graphics (which is a nice change of pace from games like SIMS). The music in this title is very fun and cheerful and fits this titles cuteness very well.

Topics tagged under nintendo on WiiWareWave 900x

Bottom line:

Animal Crossing: City Folk is a niche game that some will find irresistibly fun and addictive but is certainly not for everyone. However those who like virtual life games that allow you to live a separate virtual life such as The Sims, you'll likely enjoy this refreshingly cute game. At a $20 price for brand new copies it's a bargain.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Score: ★★★★★★★★☆☆ 8/10

8- Great This is a great game that might have a few flaws or could have been better, but is still a game we highly recommend!
