#316987 Xbox One Lunar White Controller (Review) | ZyroXZ2

Posted by Rockodoodle on 06 October 2015 - 02:31 PM

Don't be embarrassed... That is, unless you're not playing it on the Wii U along with the custom Bowser and DK Skylanders amiibo...  :P


***AUTO-MERGED***

 

Looks like it's just an extra snazzy white and gold controller right?  The thing is, there are a couple of differences that might just make this controller worth the extra $5!

 

 

 

Yeah- I got the Wii U version.  Bowser comes with the 3ds and is apparently more like a Mario Kart game and with different tracks.  I think I will eventually get that too.  I kind of like it, if for no other reason, you can adjust the level of difficulty.  Donkey Kong is my favorite character in Smash and MK8.  But his games are too frustrating for me.

Just got both- got Rare Replay for $20 and $10 off of Forza.... Haven't played either b/c of that Mario game and..... embarrassed to say Skylanders.

I have a Sony Experia for my phone. I think I will get a ps4 eventually.


#311171 Last day to redeem coins on Club Nintendo.....

Posted by Rockodoodle on 30 March 2015 - 07:05 PM

I was able to register a few old games for 150 coins.  Picked up Paper Mario, Xevious, NSMB2, Pilot Wings, Super Mario Land, Ketzal's Corridors, Dillon's Rolling Western, Harmoknight.....  Deciding between Gameboy Donkey Kong and Kersploosh.

 

Glad they finally started offering some decent stuff.  Got very disappointing to see what they were offering month to month.  Finally became worthwhile, but it was such a pain in the butt. Decided to go with games b/c the physical rewards were things that looked like to me that they would end up becoming clutter and eventually tossed anyway.




#309089 Wii U Game Collection - Over 140 games.. not mine .

Posted by Rockodoodle on 17 February 2015 - 06:01 AM

Yeah, i got Toad shortly after release. The new stream of games has kept me from getting around to lego city....same deal with Hyrule Warriors...  Always seems like there's something else i want. Glad that it looks like it has sold well...

Wow- your review of Dragon Age sounded like it deserved more than an 8.5....I'll get this eventually but it will be a while b/c of my back log.




#307427 Going for a complete wii u collection

Posted by Rockodoodle on 22 January 2015 - 05:45 PM

I have found myself picking up games on the cheap. Got bass fishing and fifa for $10. Angry Birds Star wars for $13. Ninja Gaiden for $5. AC IV for $15.


#305466 Smash Bros for Wii U (Video Review)

Posted by Rockodoodle on 16 December 2014 - 05:06 PM

Yeah, i see your point, but i think the game otherwise offers enough to bump it up to a 9.5 or higher.  I like the roster better than mk8 and the stage editor, tho very basic is still pretty cool. You get game demos and a very extensive soundtrack.

yoshi and fox.... will get dk, diddy, bowser and a few others




#305276 Smash Bros for Wii U (Video Review)

Posted by Rockodoodle on 13 December 2014 - 05:26 PM

Great review, but it's better than a 9. I'd put it right up or even beyond mk8, which you gave a ten.




#304248 Thoughts on Smash Bros. 3ds vs. Wii U

Posted by Rockodoodle on 02 December 2014 - 11:54 AM

Not intended to be a "which is better...." but rather, what are your overall thoughts on one vs. the other.  Are you glad you got both? Will you get the other if you only have one?  

 

I wasn't looking forward to the 3ds version all that much, but caved in and got on launch day.... Have about 25 hours on it- which is a lot for me.  I really enjoy being able to play it on the fly as a time killer, plus at the gym.

 

Waited a week to get the Wii U version.  At first wasn't blown away by it- I think in part b/c I've been playing the 3ds version so much.  But I've been playing the Wii U version for a bit now too- actually at a faster rate than I was playing my 3ds version (have six hours on it already and got it on Black Friday- but didn't play it until Saturday).

 

All & all, VERY pleased with both- I got a free $15 gift card at Target with purchase, so I got an Amiibo (Fox). Haven't used him yet.  I'll bet that I end up with over a hundred hours of play on these two by April, if not sooner. So, at a dollar per hour of entertainment- likely much cheaper by this time next year (less than fifty cents?).... this was a great way to spend $100..... 




#303447 Post Your Wii U Library and Collection

Posted by Rockodoodle on 19 November 2014 - 08:31 AM

This is how I feel about it.  I have a few games that I haven't even opened yet- Darksiders, Splinter Cell, FIFA and Bass Fishing.  I got all of them on sale on Amazon.  I figure if I get 5-10 hours out of them on a cold rainy weekend, it's worthwhile.  Sometimes I'll pick up eShop games on sale too- or if it looks interesting and I want to support the developer.

 

 

 

This thread is for Wii U game collectors and people who want to be Wii U game collectors, as well as passer-bys.

Here are the Wii U games I currently own:

Mario Kart 8
Mario 3D World
Sonic Boom
Sonic Lost World
Hyrule Warriors
Nintendo Land

IMG_20141118_140850433_zpsugoughms.jpg

Games I think my collection needs more of:

Zelda Wind Waker HD ($35)

or

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Wii U ($19)
Spongebob: Plankton's Robotic Revenge Wii U ($15)

I have decided I'll start collecting Wii U games. I have also decided I'll only collect games that score at least a 35-40 on Metacritic or other reviews. But anything 35-40/100 is still fair game.

I will collect games not based so much on condition but whether they are playable, and I want a collection much like a book collection where you can just pick up and use it. Meaning, I'm not in it for the resale value.

Also, it may not seem like I have much, but this is in 1 month time or so. At one point with my old Wii U, I owned about one and a half dozen games, and I wasn't collecting.

Posted by Rockodoodle on 24 October 2014 - 08:34 AM

I'll pick this up.... next year.  Looks cool but I still have a ton to play on some of my other XBone games, plus Smash, Bayonetta and Toad's Treasure Tracker this year.

 

 

 

 

 

So did I get my money's worth out of my steering wheel and stand setup with 'Forza Motorsport 5'? Watch and find out!
 
[See OP]

***AUTO-MERGED: Destiny Review! (9/23/14)***

 

Yup, I caved into the hype and gave 'Destiny' a whirl. So, how did it fare against all that hype that got non-believers like me to buy it?
 
[See OP]

 

***AUTO-MERGED: Let's Play with Jeremy! (10/7/14)***

 

I bring my first guest onto the Xbox "Hut" show, and allow him to try his skills at Forza Motorsport 5... with my steering wheel setup!  He's consequently also the first dude to come on my show as a guest!
 
As a player who's been using a controller, how well does he fare with a force feedback steering wheel?  Let's watch and find out!
 

***AUTO-MERGED: Forza Horizon 2 Review! (10/21/14)***

 

There's nothing quite like the unrealism of an arcade racer. But what if that was layered with sim racing characteristics, placed in a highly detailed and large open world, and spattered with lots of cars and various activities? What you have is this.
 
 
Also, my British apparently degrades drastically on 3 hours of sleep...
