Video games are my passion, and Nintendo is the heart of that passion. Also, ponies rock.

AshFoxX commented on Did Atlus USA Just Tease Attack On Titan Local...:

I never really got into the series but I remember having a great time playing the fan-made browser game about a year ago. It was good fun and extremely difficult at first. This game looks sort of one-note, but I'd be willing to check it out. Hopefully some day someone will hear my prayer to make a Nintendo game that is akin to Earth Defense Force because I don't want to buy a Vita JUST to play EDF2017 on the go.



AshFoxX commented on ​Fresh Legend of Kay Anniversary Screenshots...:

Oh yeah, I remember reading about this PS2 game I've never heard of that is getting an HD release on Wii U. It's a strange turn of events but we could always use more good 3D platformers, especially due to the lack of a real 3D Mario game on the system. ('real' meaning no time limit and not set up with short linear levels. I love 3D World but I want to see a successor to Galaxy, Sunshine and 64 this generation.)



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo Direct Confirmed for 1st April, With ...:

I will have to re-hook up my desktop for this but it will be totally worth it. I'm hoping for some more info on Star Fox and one or two (THREE!!!!) surprise games for Wii U and 3DS. I do not want any talk on NX, but some info on QoL would be welcome. And as always, N64 VC releases are always good news if they ever get around to them, even if they do only re-release the initial 20+ games they had on Wii VC.



AshFoxX commented on The Racing Days Are Over For SEGA’s 3DS eSho...:

I always enjoyed the Initial D anime (despite the 4th stage ending on a cliffhanger with no Stage 5 in sight for years) and the arcade stage that we got in the states was good fun, so I would have loved more of the series here in the US. I know it wouldn't sell though :(



AshFoxX commented on Weirdness: Someone's Made a Super Mario 64 HD ...:

Looking at Mario 64 in HD makes it look so empty. I know it's a demo for a project likely still in Alpha or at most early Beta, but this just looks sparse and empty. My favorite part of the video is the analog camera controls. SMOOTH as butter :)



AshFoxX commented on Animal Crossing Helped This Artist Get Through...:

@HADAA Nice Billy Madison reference.

on topic, I have a friend who amassed about 500 hours into Pokemon Platinum during not only his Chemo, but also his time in the hospital after getting hit by a car on the way to school and breaking his leg. He had a rough year back in 2010.



AshFoxX commented on Interview: Nintendo and Nd Cube on Bowser, ami...:

I understand the car mechanic just fine but I find that the boards end too quickly for me and my friends. We liked setting the turns to 50 and playing the same board for hours to amass huge cache's of stars and coins. I do like that amiibo party sticks to the same rules, it's just too bad that it's a boring square board instead of the multi-pathed strategic boards of Mario Party past.

I'd literally have NO complaints if they had just made a 'Classic' mode and a 'Modern' mode, with pre-MP9 rules on the former and MP9 rules on the latter. That way everyone is happy.



AshFoxX commented on Latest 3DS Update Adds HOME Menu Layouts And P...:

Another update? I don't always have my 3DS on when connected to WiFi and I have had it several occasions where my system firmware was older than my friends so we couldn't play together. I wish they would release these a little less often, maybe make a good update that will last a good while instead of constantly forcing us to connect online and watch a progress bar slowly crawl across the screen instead of playing.



AshFoxX commented on Video: The Minimum Percentages to KO with Jigg...:

I still haven't been able to use Rest correctly in any of the games, although I do recall having a few lucky hits in melee back when I played it religiously in High School. I'll be practicing dropping down on my opponents now and see if I can't make Jigglypuff not make me groan when I wind up using her in the randomizer.



AshFoxX commented on Opinion: Splatoon Is to Shooters what Mario Ka...:

Local multiplayer for this could make or break a buy from me since I don't tend to enjoy playing with strangers, but I have an interest in it now since everything I saw at E3 and directs never really caught my attention. You compare anything to Mario Kart and I'll be optimistic.



AshFoxX commented on Iwata: Nintendo NX Will Surprise People And Ch...:

@gcunit yes, I know what the word only means in all context of the English language. First off, it was meant as a tease. Second, you don't have to be mean about it. I didn't even claim my cookie for doing what was intended and making someone laugh.



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo’s Free-To-Play Experiment Pokémon ...:

I love it, but Nintendo is probably a little pissed that 2.5 million 3DS owners have the game and only about seven of them have spent any money in it since the other 2.49 million players have either used an exploit to get lots of free gems or are patient like me.



AshFoxX commented on Mysterious Murasame Castle's Takamaru Was Cons...:

I want to see the Hebereke group return for Smash, at least one of them, Hebe or Oh-Chan - or Bop-Louie and Freeon-Leon from Ufouria: the Saga for those wondering what the heck I'm talking about, though I really hate the localized designs of Hebe and Oh-Chan. Sukezaemon (Shades) and Jennifer (Gil) would make good assist trophies too.

Most of their games were Nintendo exclusive outside of the arcade until the later puzzle games which were on the PS1/Saturn in Japan, much like Castlevania but I've run my mouth enough about how much I want to see Belmont, Cruz or Alucard as a playable character in Smash, and the fact that a Castlevania stage would be perfect for 8-player matches.

I also want to see SOFIA THE 3RD from Blaster Master appear in some form like a final smash move for some NES game character, assist trophy or even a regular trophy to collect.



AshFoxX commented on Zelda Lookalike Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharte...:

@Resh "Now that I think about it a isometric Zelda title would be cool."

I always thought the term 'isometric' meant the overhead view that was in all of the 2D Zelda games (except II) and I had a nice long rant prepared about how stupid it sounded that isometric was nothing like Zelda, but then I learned what isometric meant... It's overhead view with a slight tilt in angle to create a 3D appearance. I'm paraphrasing of course, but I don't know whether I should feel stupid now, or if it's still fair to say Zelda has been an isometric game since 1986.



AshFoxX commented on Masahiro Sakurai Reportedly Promises That Mewt...:

I hope this is just the beginning of DLC for Smash 3DS/Wii U. Personally I want back Wolf and I want to see some Castlevania characters/stages. Simon Belmont, Alucard, Soma Cruz, plenty of Belmonts and others to choose, and a stage reminiscent of Harmony of Despair's large multi-roomed stages for 8-player smash on Wii U, and maybe stages reminiscent of the NES Castlevania or Castlevania IV/Rondo of Blood with skeletons and other monsters as obstacles for 3DS.

A guy can dream I suppose.



AshFoxX commented on Poll: Where Do You Stand On DeNA, Smart Device...:

While I feel that the 3DS and the Wii U are too young for Nintendo to be talking about a 'possible' successor, I have some fears about what NX could be potentially. I am also worried about it being the 'third pillar' that has been brought up about the device a few times as that is what they called the DS before it was released and it ended up replacing the Game Boy line.



AshFoxX commented on Sega Producer Explains Exactly What Went Wron...:

"What do you think about Frost's comments? Do you think he's being too harsh, or not harsh enough?" I think Frost was right to leave the company because he clearly doesn't know the beginning of why Sonic Boom was a disaster. "Oh, it failed because he wasn't fast." No bro, it failed because it was a rushed game that, even if it had been finished, still had nothing to deliver other than bland platforming and lame one liners for a licensed tv show.



AshFoxX commented on eShop Games Added To The European Club Nintend...:

Glad to see EU finally get the flurry of stuff to empty star reserves. I have gotten just enough to reach platinum status this year, so hopefully next month when they roll out the elite/platinum awards, it wont be a pile of garbage for the last hurrah.



AshFoxX commented on Pokémon Rumble World Rated By the Australian ...:

I wanted to love these games so much, but they are hardly even games. I probably would have liked them when I was ten though, same as Pokemon Snap which I played for months as a kid and as an adult I beat it in one sitting and never touched it again.



AshFoxX commented on Hyper Light Drifter Might Not Hit Wii U Until ...:

@Tiredman For me, I don't spend $20 on digital games, no matter the quality. If I don't own a physical copy, I don't spend that much, simple as that. It is a rule of mine, as I don't believe in an all digital future, and this rule is part of my stand against that future... Oh you said that too? Okay then, I agree 100% :D



AshFoxX commented on Video: Did You Know That Gunstar Heroes Shippe...:

Now I want to start a go-fund-me to buy a sealed copy of Gunstar Heroes and eat that fruit roll-up cuz I'd totally do that. I once drank a fruit juice I found still wrapped in the box in my parents garage that had to be at least 12 years old.

For those curious, it was very black and very nasty.



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo to Lead Design and Development of Sma...:

"In reassuring comments for those concerned that Nintendo's best-known and revered development figurehead - Shigeru Miyamoto - would be distracted from console games, however, Iwata-san has insisted that the designer's priority remains the upcoming slate of major Wii U releases." Why do I just envision Miyamoto sitting at a work bench in his basement hitting a Wii U with a wrench over and over again?



AshFoxX commented on Editorial: Nintendo's Heading For a Period of ...:

@Artwark I remember the first mobile games before we even had smart phones. You think games on iPhone and Android were bad? I spent hours at lunch time playing a crappy 'tetris' clone on a black and green 3mm screen on some old brick phone that didn't even have texting. I think I also had Drug Wars on that thing. It was dumb, but it was neat back then that you could play a little game on your phone. Whoever came up with games on your phone was a GENIOUS.

It's convenient, but alas, it can never replace a dedicated Nintendo handheld.



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo Working On New 'Dedicated Game Platfo...:

I can't believe that this generation for Nintendo is already this close to being over, and the Wii-U shelves at the store still look as barren as the XBone and PS4 shelves, especially compared to the entire walls dedicated to 360 and PS3.



AshFoxX commented on Video: Nintendo of America Unveils Commercial ...:

I had zero interest in Puzzle & Dragons until I got addicted to Pokemon Shuffle. Who says that Nintendo doesn't know how to advertise and market their games? I'm actually excited about P&D now. Mario Party can wait until they fix it.



AshFoxX commented on Guide: Everything We Know So Far About Nintend...:

Nintendo - a well-known video game brand around the world. Who created this image? they show the Virtual Boy, the Game Boy Advance SP (along with the original design), the DSLite (again along with the phat model), the N3DS (...) and even the budget priced red Wii, but not a single image of the original Game Boy or Game Boy Color? What gives?!
