Male, 23, Sweden

I’ve been gaming since the Game & Watch era. I’ve owned every Nintendo handheld, and still own most of them today. Right now I play on 3DS, WiiU and my gaming PC. It’s a lovely hobby and I hope I’ll be able to continue with it for a long time.

Sure, even so, that would be disappointing. Big "surprises" usually take a lot of time in these shows. I don't want to sit through 10 minutes watching a 4-year-old game being showed off. There are so many other (and better) things they could spend that time on, assuming this is indeed a Nintendo Direct announcement.



19Robb92 commented on New Patent Sparks Talk of Potential NX Details:

That is a worrying patent. Digital only sounds horrible and going back to having cartidges sounds expensive.

I hope this is nothing more than Nintendo sequring ideas, ideas that will hopefully never actually happen.



19Robb92 commented on Review: Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time (Wii U...:

Great game, but definitely the worst in the series, IMO. Time travel is a boring gimmick and the "Shroobs" were a boring enemy with no personality at all. Not to mention that the babies were more of an annoyance than a fun mechanic. Hopefully Paper Mario will be more fun in the upcoming "Paper Jam".

Around 7-8 seems like an adequate score.

I noticed the downgrade as soon as they showed the same scene from the reveal trailer. It seems pretty big IMO. Worse textures, lighting and detail.

I don't mind though as long as they can keep the frame-rate steady.



19Robb92 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

The "C-stick" was available well before the New 3DS in the form of the Circle Pad Pro.

The improved 3D is only a hardware upgrade, the games themselves have nothing to do with it.

This game does not make use of the improved CPU. It runs at the same frame-rate as OOT:3D, has the same visual upgrade and less content.

So the game itself doesn't really add any of those features.



19Robb92 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

You don't need change per-se. Additional content would have been enough. That is a very easy way to increase the greatness of an already great game without changing the game itself.

In my opinion they should have included a Master Quest/New Game+ or/and a boss rush mode etc. etc.

All in all, this game is worse value for the money than Ocarina of Time 3D was, which is something of a downgrade to me. A sequel should improve, so a 10/10 seems too high to me.



19Robb92 commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

That's not how things work. Just saying. If no profit is to be made there would be no incentives for trade to begin with.

I'd love to hear your explanation as to why Sony sold the Ps3 at a loss? According to your line of thought it should have been even more expensive at launch than it was.



19Robb92 commented on Weirdness: The Dual Wielding Samus amiibo is C...:

Not surprising.

It's very rare for manufacturing errors to turn out "good". Usually it's just poor coloring of the figure or something else that is considered negative by most. This is really cool though. I imagine a error going the other way around (two hands) would be very neat, and valuable, as well.



19Robb92 commented on Sakurai Explains Why Ridley Is Not A Playable ...:

A character that is not available in the game cannot be nerfed... That would imply that I could say Dark Pit was nefed in Super Smash Bros. for WiiU because of whatever reason. There has to be a starting point to compare with before you can call a character nerfed/improved.



19Robb92 commented on Sakurai Explains Why Ridley Is Not A Playable ...:

Eh.. That makes no sense.

If he were to apply what he says he is trying to apply (accurate portrayals of characters), Captain Olimar should have a height of 1.9cm (0.75 inches). So practically the height of Mario's shoe. Instead he is taller than Kirby.

Going further, they gave Zero Suit Samus boost heels, which isn't part of any Metroid game featuring Zero Suit Samus.

And why is the Duck Hunt Dog and Duck suddenly friends? That goes against the whole point of the game where the dog is supposed to hunt the ducks. Makes no sense for the portrayal of neither the duck nor the dog.


Sometimes I wonder if Sakurai just say things to calm a certain audience and skips the actual reasoning behind decisions.



19Robb92 commented on Wii U-Exclusive Super Smash Bros. Modes and Ch...:

Looks super casual to me.

But I do like the idea of picking up characters and then being able to use those characters as stock. I imagine this mode could have been made to look a lot more desirable though. It just screams boredom visually (even if it may end up super fun)



19Robb92 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Live Nintendo Dire...:

Yeah, it'll be interesting to see all these things on a live show. Should be more exciting than the usual pre-recorded ND's

It was to be expected though. I've always viewed the 3DS version as more of a try-out version before the WiiU version comes out. But it seems like the WiiU game will have even more content than I expected it to, assuming all of these 50 things truly are "must-see things".

Very exciting.



19Robb92 commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

Eight seems low. This is one of the absolute best games in its whole genre. I would definitely give it a 9, maybe even higher. I really hope Bayonetta 2 can live up to this game!

Can't wait to play this (again) and Bayonetta 2!



19Robb92 commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

Yeah, I suspected this ever since he made the comment about having difficults with IceClimbers in the 3DS version a year or so ago.

It's still sad to see that the 3DS version will end up limiting the WiiU game though. I was hoping that would not be the case. In retrospect I would have rather seen both versions getting a couple of different characters.
