Still surprised the "Star Fox Zero is awful" meme is well and alive.

Goes to show memes are more important than facts and opinions. But this is the twitch generation, unfortunately. You get to be a professional critic for watching some guy play a game for 10 minutes then panic he has to learn new controls and calls it shit and goes back to a overly played game so he's not embarrassed.

 

Man this hobby is amazing, but the community is shit.

 

 

Sucks no Pikmin 3. Only WiiU exclusive I don't have.

Huh?  Star Fox Zero is pretty bad.  I love the Star Fox (heck I even liked Star Fox Assault a lot), but Zero is just not very good.  I bought it first day for full price (with GCU, of course) and was just really disappointed (and still have it).  The tight controls of previous ones were just ruined because of the insistence on the motion controls, it isn't because they are hard, it is because it just isn't that fun to play like that.  For some reason Miyamoto seems to think people play Star Fox because of gimmicks, when they could just deliver a straight-forward shooter with great big space battles and people would love it.  The only decent bright point for me was being able to play it with my young son being the gunner.

Star Fox Guard was great. I never even played Star Fox! I stuck to Guard for about 20 or so hours.

Quick question. Anyone know if Zelda Breath of the wild can be played exclusively on the Gamepad? Debating on getting this for the Wii U or just making a jump to the Switch.

Yes, you can play it exclusively on the Gamepad. That’s how my son plays it. (Oops...Sorry I brought up that I have offspring 😀)

Nintendo Network ID: Dwayne    (yes, I actually got my first name!)

Xbox Live: bco

 

Currently playing: Halo 5 multiplayer, a lot!

My biggest gripe with Star Fox Zero is actually the lackluster alternative route options. With the exception of like one mission, all other alternates pale in comparison (and ridiculously short to boot!) to the main route missions. It wouldn't be so bad if maybe you could play them all in a single massive playthrough...but you can't. Sure, I guess you could pick and choose each mission in the story mode, but it doesn't jive very well narratively speaking. That, and the copter segments...I'd love them well enough by themselves, but they really kill the momentum of a typical Star Fox run.

Onto the topic at hand, I'd like Color Splash, but I don't really see anything else to pick that'd both interest me and I don't already own. Would the Mario Tennis game be decent getting it at the price I would in this deal?

Color Splash greatly improves on Sticker Star's formula to the point where it's actually a fun game. There's still has the problem where it's an action game with turn-based battles instead of an RPG, and it'd be a much better game if the developers committed to one or the other.

Star Fox Zero I enjoyed, but it did take a little while for the control scheme to click. You have to be able to handle both screens during some boss fights, and it wasn't until my second playthrough that I could easily beat them.

Star Fox Guard is a solid title too, and $15 for each is a pretty good deal.


I'd say it's closer to an RPG because you actually have a level like character progression and growth with your paint storage and other things.

Still, I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the other Paper Mario games, but it is far better than Sticker Star

All the games I want are showing in online but when. I try to purchase them they are sold out.
New Super Mario and Mario Maker specifically.

Went to a local Target this evening and picked up Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon for WiiU, both were scanning in at $59.99.

 

Brought them to the front check-out cashier because electronics register was closed.  I had them price match Target's website, so Mario Kart 8 came to $50.99 and Splatoon came out to be $49.49.  The manager looked at the offer on Target's website and was nice enough to honor it.  Considering that Target's website said "Limited Stock" and then "Visit store to purchase" and the "offer details" did not include anything about being "not valid in-store" or "online only" I could have brought this to their attention if there was an issue.

 

I put a $25.00 gift card I got for Christmas towards the purchase so I made out well on the checkout.  

 

According to Target, the B1G1 free offer expires 1/13/2018 at 11:59pm PT.

Set my APP to notify when items were in

Were able to grab all the games I wanted at the local Target, even though the site said they are sold out
