in the most recent episode of NWR Jonathan Metts predicted that the Wii U basic set would be discontinued, with recent news seemingly confirming this statement it seems the unthinkable has happened...

NWR has gotten a prediction right...
this can only mean one thing

Nintendo Gaming / What do you want in the next Zelda game?
« on: May 27, 2013, 11:03:07 AM »


i recently played through twilight princess a bit and as i was playing I began to ask myself "whats wrong with the Zelda formula". it is a bit blatant in that particular game but honestly the formula works fine. What do you think? does it need to be changed or does it simply need to be handled differently...

Nintendo Gaming / The Wii U and next Gen: What can Nintendo do?
« on: May 17, 2013, 07:57:11 AM »
The general consensus seems to be that the Wii U is underpowered. whether this claim holds 100% true or not is still uncertain but it will hurt the Wii U's image nonetheless. How can Nintendo handle this situation. What do you think?

Nintendo Gaming / Bluetooth: a Tale of two Screens
« on: May 02, 2013, 11:06:03 PM »
anybody know of an adapter of some kind that I can use to connect the 3DS to my Bluetooth headset? I have a wired pair (which has seen better days) but the Bluetooth headset has caused me to retire it to devices that are not Bluetooth compatible (all of which are made by Nintendo)... any other solution of any sort...

Reader Reviews / A Forgotten Gem [Spyro:Year of the Dragon]
« on: April 13, 2013, 06:02:13 PM »
I have already spoken small praises here and there to the Playstation's Classic series. I have decided out of boredom to review Spyro 3.

Spyro: Year of the Dragon was released in 2000(which is the year of the dragon on the zodiac calandar) and is the last game in the series to have been handled by Insomniac. the game may not have been on the N64 but it shares more then a few tropes with games on that console.

Storywise the Dragons have a collection of 150 dragon eggs. however an evil sorceress creatively named... the Sorceress, has sent her minions to steal them all and bring them to the Forgotten Realms... although it does have some neat between the lines type of lore and is relatively well told it still serves as a new excuse to get the little dragon from Point A to  point B.

Presentation wise this game hits everything with flying colors, it does certainly feel like a relic of it's time but it presents itself very well from within the limitations of the first Playstation. the characters are well animated and full of life and the game also features full (and extremely campy) voice acting and a top notch soundtrack.

And this brings us to where the game truely stands tall, the  characters, from 007 parody Sgt Byrd(Byrd, James Byrd) series mainstays like Moneybags, the game has created a wonderful cast of characters that bring everything together.

The game itself plays alot like platformers of it's day, the 150 eggs play the same role as the stars in Mario 64. the levels themselves function more like the ones found in Banjo Kazooie however they do feature a main objective of some form.

Spyro 3 introduced various new playable characters that vary in playstyle(for better or worse) and also adds various intresting little side mission objectives. (including guiding a fireball into a lava pool to restart the sun and playing hockey with cats.)

However Spyro's core gameplay has not changed, being a dragon he naturally carries the ability to breathe fire and glide in addition to the standard run and jump platforming abilities... his arsenal is utilized in various different ways and enhanced by certain power ups, Sparx, a staple of the series, serves as a color coded health indicator, yellow for full, blue for 3/4th's green for half, if he disappears you are one hit from death.

The game isn't without its problems, the added characters for the most part don't feel as polished as Spyro himself (or as the tacked on skateboarding thing for that matter). the game is also not very different from the previous entrys in the series. it features more content then ripto's rage(gateway to gliminer) but no major new mechanics. the game is a bit easy if you aren't planning to collect everything and honestly, despite having been optimized for the Dualshock it doesn't always control the best in some of the minigame segments but anybody who enjoys N64 era platforming should see what could be found on the other side of the console wars. the game can be found on PSN i believe and i imagine is a relatively easy find physically.

Nintendo Gaming / What do you want with the Wii U virtual console.
« on: April 12, 2013, 08:19:11 PM »
for me, outside of systems like the Dreamcast and Gamecube, i want a new Classic Controller redesign based on the original... two more face buttons and slightly better erogonomics(in a way that retains a more classic feel) along with the ability to map the buttons(which i believe you can already do)

but this controller would exclusively hold the ability to have turbo buttons(along with the ability fastforward/slowmotion setup) in virtual console games.

what do you guys want?

Nintendo Gaming / Fire Emblem Awakening
« on: April 05, 2013, 12:08:10 AM »
so... with little over a week to rub it into those euro jerks... lets talk fire emblem

am I the only one put off by the blue glow on the outrealms characters... also I hate that swordmasters got nerfed so badly, and why is it archers/snipers are the only ones that can use longbows,

one of the child characters(not saying who) starts as a knight and has(for me)  amazing speed growth, Its awesome...

but I love the class system in general so :/

Nintendo Gaming / The world of 3DS revisions.
« on: March 29, 2013, 10:02:36 PM »
im planning to upgrade to an XL on black friday(unless a 3DS lite is announced) i'm curious, what would make you upgrade  to a 3DS revision, how much battery is enough

for me, some of the jaggies on the screen get annoying imo and 8-12 hours is plenty. a more efficient sleep mode maybe?

and i think we can lay the built in circle pad pro to rest here, it's not happening

NWR Feedback / double threads
« on: March 28, 2013, 07:40:49 AM »
i've noticed a trend of somebody bringing up a news thing in console discussion and then that story being brought up on the site and we have two threads on the same thing, (bf4)

can't you merge them or something? idk

im strongly considering the creation of a parody account on twitter depicting a 'Gaming Illuminati' so i can make fun of the gaming industry as a whole, any ideas...

General Chat / tbh i might (somewhat) miss gamestop
« on: March 03, 2013, 02:00:12 PM »
yes the preorder stuff is a bit stupid but i picked up excitebots for 5$
i am happy that digital distribution is going to make these hard to find games a thing of the past but randomly stumbling upon a copy of the game created such a feeling of joy...
im going to miss that

General Gaming / Is Xbox Live a Ripoff
« on: February 17, 2013, 04:18:15 PM »
[I have decided to bump this thread to provide some previous discussion we can use to address the larger topic of if Xbox Live is worth paying 60$ a month for, the original 'XBL vs on disc dlc' debate remains intact]

all i want for online services is online play, a store, and maybe voice chat.. i dont really care about the extras and i already have internet. what makes the xbox so special that i should have to pay a seperate fee just so somebody at microsoft can flip a switch and let me do things i can already do(and paid for) on the PS3 or Wii U(including online services like netflix that i'm also already paying for)

[here i pose the original topic discussion comparing Xbox Live to on disc DLC...]

Now to address the clickbait title...  people complain about on disc dlc and that's exactly what xbox live charges for... locked features in your 200$ game system... at least on disc DLC has the DECENCY to be a one time fee

So i ask... WHAT MAKES THE XBOX SO SPECIAL THAT I SHOULD PAY 60 BUCKS A YEAR TO DO WHAT CAN BE ALREADY DONE ON PSN AND NINTENDO NETWORK....

Lets try to keep this civilized

Snow, rain and fog not enough?
Lets expand on that. Napoleon's army along with the German army in ww2 both fell to the Russian winter. Work on that

Nintendo Gaming / 3ds adhoc party
« on: February 20, 2012, 09:35:41 PM »
I really think nintendo should create their own version of adhoc party(adhoc party  is a ps3 thing that allows psp games that only  have local wireless to play online. This would allow games like star fox and monster hunter that were not given online in development to get online. While this would not be as good as having true online it could be nice to have
