3Daniel commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

I'm without a doubt buying one. I wanted this before 3DS XL was announced. This took way to long tho and should have already bee on international shelves by summer 2014. Tho I'm very cautious about the whole only "new compatible" games aspect as I would rather every 3ds game moving forward take advantage of the improvements instead of a handful...

3Daniel commented on New Legend Of Zelda "Only Possible" Thanks To ...:

The map feature of Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks would be divine. Especially with the ability to zoom in said map so you have a lot more writing room. I also hope we get at least one "uncharted" island where we are left to our own devices to define the landscape and points of interest. Personally sharing maps and replaying the title by relying on another gamer's map would be awesome. Perhaps a single randomly generated dungeon in the mix tied to another player's map would be interesting and a great way to use Miiverse sharing. Just a map and or inventory screen on the pad would be lackluster.

there was a roster leak showing the character select screen. in it bowser jr was seen and he was seated in something. so these videos difinitely give cred to those leaks which mean the leaker may be right about duck hunt dog!!!! interestingly tho the leaker also claimed 5 dlc characters from ice climbers, lucas, wolf, mewtwo, choir boys.

@DrSlump Chocolate drizzled fried onion is delicious!

I don't think it's wrong to voice the opinion about this particular cross promotion. Personally I have no issue with it. If you don't like it just target those shells at every mercedes you see! What I do think is wrong is if an employee loses their job over it so here's hoping that doesn't happen!

3Daniel commented on Brinstar Confirmed as Classic Stage for Smash ...:

It actually looks as if Samus has had a reduction from Brawl if you catch my drift. She looks more naturally proportioned, tho she is sporting some serious Shaq foot. ZSS was a fav of mine in Brawl and judging from the Treehouse and E3 tournament she looks to be a much better combatant this time around.

Haha Nintendo's own Project Guard made me think of NightTrap and the possibilities for Gamepad use. Personally I think NT would be best suited to the WiiU. But I also remember what garbage the game was and wouldn't back it or buy it.

I'll never understand why Nintendo abandoned the Gamecube controller design when creating the pro series. I get it was a hassle for multiplatform titles and ports but it is still my all time favorite controller to use and definitely serves smash bros the finest. Why not just redesign a Wii U pro to be more like the Wavebird?

There's been a definite drought since May when MK8 came out. I fear the flood of games coming starting end of September I'm definitely going to have to miss out on a couple of titles I was originally planning to day 1 due to the onslaught. Nintendo cluttered the fall schedule and hopefully not to their detriment.

I loved contests and was dissapointed by every attempt to emulate them since Gen 3. I'm torn as to getting these remakes tho as there are still 2 pokemon with no planned release for x and y. volcanion and hoopla. I would hate to have to plunk down more $ for omega and alpha to gain access to them if they ever see the light of day.

3Daniel commented on Trine Enchanted Edition Will Be Casting A Spel...:

I loved Trine 2. Never got to play the first. Hoping they make the physics less floaty in this updated port of the first title tho I never picked the second title back up after I beat it when that patch was released so maybe they already did. Someone will correct me if I'm wrong :) !!!

3Daniel commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

haha. I've been playing around with this app all weekend and didn't even realize there was Miiverse integration. I tend to skip Miiverse on the handheld as its way to slow and clunky compared to Wii U and the mobile internet version.

3Daniel commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

@piojito_O I love Toon Link and have always enjoyed the style. I never understood the hate during Wind Waker's reveal. Personally I find the ALbW design to be far too generic so I'm pleased they stuck with Toon. I find Link's moveset to be better suited to the speed increase with the shorter Links. "Normal" Link needs more weight and more power. The Gale Boomerang was useless in Brawl so hopefully there will be more of a push and pull this time around. If not, he would benefit from some sort of a stun attack because I find his smash attacks too slow and weak.

3Daniel commented on Sakurai Explains Why Chrom Didn't Make It Into...:

I've always had trouble utilizing Marth in Smash so I like Lucina as a clone. However I hope she has an alt Masked version. I'm still holding out for Isaac as his synergy could differentiate himself from Robin. If not Isaac than his son from Dusk so there's no Japanese name confusion. I think a vehicle based character like Excitebike racer would be awesome. Marlo from Pushmo or Layton would be nice or at least a Pushmo stage. Nintendo has a great selection of puzzlers that have yet to be represented in a Smash title.

3Daniel commented on Captain Falcon, Lucina and Robin All Join The ...:

I think Chrom will be an alt skin for Lucina. They share the same sword in the screenshots but Robin's final smash looks to use him. Oh well. Lucina should have been a Marth skin. I love Fire Emblem but with the character choices you wouldn't think the series had lances, spears, axes, hammers, bows, hatchets, rapiers, or javelins etc. Robin at least breaks the mold with tomes.

3Daniel commented on New Fighter for Super Smash Bros. to be Reveal...:

I'm going to guess it'll be a character coinciding with a surprise announcement for an upcoming wii u title. Something has to give with this new countdown approach. Perhaps F-Zero U and Captain Falcon! Hyrule Warriors launches in Japan soon so maybe Ganondorf.

also as an intelligent mature and free thinking individual i have no issue with tossing shells and sliding around banana peels while karting in a mercedes. i actually want this dlc. if for nothing else then my own amusement. for those that take a spin with this dlc and then rush out to buy a luxury vehicle because mario "told" them is their business. ;)

the fact that after mk8 theres really nothing outside of indies on the eshop or wiisports to look foward till september/october isnt going to help the momentum. in fact i predict most people who havent made the jump to the system will once again forget its existence. even if E3 was great. maybe I'm just bitter that Nintendo cluttered all the titles I wanted into a 2 month span and is forcibg me to pick and choose which to get, which to wait and which to forget.

this game along with many others Nintendo has shown gives me great joy in knowing that HD gaming can be colorful and not just brown yet still give a feel for realism. of the arts and craft variety with woolly world.

@MinecraftGreek id love for them too but considering how long its taken for them to finally give an official mario editor i douvt it. tho if this is a huge success and doesnt cut into future mario title sales than i dont see why they wouldnt. tho even just looking at whats been shown i can definately see some dedicated players recreating other methods of gameplay. like recreating zelda dungeons but with mario style of play.

3Daniel commented on Mario Maker to Include Additional Graphical St...:

im assuming each map must have a flagpole and that the player must reach said flagpole in order to be able to complete the level and upload it. so while the graphics may differ, if say you can use a link or samus character instead of mario, the design itself will stay true to mario. i.e. you move left to right and finish when you reach the flagpole. mariovsdonkey kong minismarchagain is most likely the template for how editing and sharing will work. tho uldated of course to feature miiverse if possible.

i thought nintendo's e3 made owning a wii u this holiday season essential. as october thru all of 2015 looks great. the games look great! but for those who already own a wii u it looks like another drought is upon us in EU and US. mario maker would have been a fantastic summer release. hopefully mario kart dlc comes out soon as battle mode is already a chore slogging thru the same tracks you race on.

3Daniel commented on Pikmin 3 Update Adds New Stylus Control Style:

FINALLY. i was so perplexed by the ability to play on the gamepad but requiring the use of a wiimote and nunchuck to do so or the wonky control stick scheme this makes me BEYOND happy and now i have a reason to replay it!

3Daniel commented on Digital Foundry Pins Down Mario Kart 8's Resol...:

i tried the demo at gamestop and the game was weird. it reminded me of super circuit in terms of the characters placement on the screen. the way the camera placement was was a little off putting. i also didnt care for the way the gamepad felt while playing but it was locked in a horizontal position where i tend to play games with the controller in a vertical position. i think im going to hav to pick up a wii u pro for this since smash is out in winter.

3Daniel commented on Talking Point: For Better Or For Worse, The Wi...:

nintendo is far too mixed in their way of presenting the gamepad. i for one love it and the myriad controllers. sometimes i like to play soley on the gamepad, even in wii mode, and i love being able to switch over to a wiimote/nunchuck or pro/pro u when needed. my biggest complaint is nintendo seems to be oblivious to the obvious. why not 5 player mario kart with the gamepad serving as a screen or even 1 player using full tv and 1 on gamepad? if the system itself isnt capable of this then the system wasnt thought out fully from the get go and nintendo jumped the shark. theres potential in the pad and i have yet to witness a better use of it then zombi u which launched 2 years ago!

3Daniel commented on Western Markets Vital For Nintendo Hardware Sa...:

they simply need games. we havent heard of anything coming after mk8 for wii u other then vague 2014 placeholders. its hard to recommend the wii u when it essentially serves as a $300 emulator of overpeiced NES games. at least release a game that makes full use of the gamepad that doesnt feel like an overinflated tech demo. i love the wii u but its severely lacking in variety when it comes to software other then halfbaked ports and sporadic mario titles. unless nintendo is going to surprise us at e3 with near releases of some major titles i am expecting another drought in the summer and if that is the case it will be the nail in the coffin of my 20 year plus relationship with nintendo home consoles.

3Daniel commented on Mario Kart 8 Club Nintendo Promotion Offers a ...:

@NickieBoy i got in trouble with nintendo for trying to give away my pokemon y code when i upgraded to 3dsxl. being this is also a club nintendo promotion im assuming itll have similar rules in place. i already had pokemon x digital on my 3ds and when i transfered it over to the xl i didnt see the need to own y as a digital on the same machine. the person i gav it to wasnt able to download as his 3ds was tied to his own club nintendo. use caution is as my own experience with these nintendo promotions indicated to me that these free codes are not technically ours and therefore we cant giv it away.

this happened like 3 weeks ago.

figures i own the NA selection. was hoping game & wario would make the cut. but this is my own fault for day one-ing everything. and to whoever asked about selling the download code you cant as its tied to the console of your club nintendo account.

3Daniel commented on GameStop Plans to Close Around 120 Stores in t...:

i actually prefer gamestop for used game purchases. unlike best buy, gamestop actually guarantees their used games. i purchased metroid other m used from best buy 2 years ago, i returned an hour after purchase because the disc didnt work which happens sometimes when they clean the disc for redistribution. not only was i met with hostility at best buy, being told i was in violation of licensing laws or some nonsense and that there was nothing they could do for me so i spoke with several managers and even best buy on social media and finally after 3 months was told i would be sent another used copy. that was 2 years ago and im still waiting. every now and then ill run into the district manager at wawa and he never makes eye contact with me. i dont consider myself the greatest best buy customer but as someone who spents thousands every year there for a almost a decade its foolish they lost a customer over a 10$ faulty used game.

where as at gamestop i can return the game within a week for store credit, easy replacement or whatever with little to no hassle.

also i love other m. dont hate. lol

depends on what the importance of marriage is in the game. i know that sounds stupid but if it plays a large role it would cause a disconnect for myself. considering these types of games rely on the avatar being "you" i'd rather stick with animal crossing. if marriage is a minor role then i may pick this up but i'm currently playing thru several titles i missed out on last year including dream team and wonderful 101 and kirby and mario kart 8 are due soon.

3Daniel commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I find the graphicsto be breathtaking with the 3d on. While they do basically limit to forground background its definately more then 2 layers as various background elements have various depths as well. Even the smudges that filter over most of the environments and characters gives off a neat layering effect. This game is absolutely ugly everywhere else but is beautiful on the 3ds. I also love the unexpected color pallets used and the combinations of assests are visually striking. Granted the bosses are weak odd and some innapropriately shaped, big beanie! And its definately not the masterpiece the original is imo. Beware the Boo Brigade! >_<
