I still remember a video like this where someone had made a custom Portal map for his girlfriend to play that actually had GLaDOS talking to her with specific comments. It ended very much the same way too <3



AshFoxX commented on Fan Ports Hideo Kojima's Cyberpunk Classic, Sn...:

Pretty astounding, I have to wonder however if Metal Gear turns into a Virtual Boy at the end? Either way, SNATCHER is one of my favorite games and I wish we had a proper modern version that wasn't on such an obscure system as the Sega/Mega CD. A translated PlayStation port would be ace on the PSN.



AshFoxX commented on Poll: Would You Like Mario Kart 8 and Super Sm...:

Hopefully one day Mario Kart 8 will be the definitive version with all the previous iterations of tracks released as DLC and missing characters from the roster, same with Sm4sh, even if Ice Climbers can't work out due to Old 3DS tech, but having all of the stages, especially Saffron City from Smash 64 would make the game a mainstay in my library for many years to come.

edit Also, Arena battles for Mario Kart 8 and character specific 'Smash the Targets' and 'Board the Platforms' for Sm4sh, nuff' said.



AshFoxX commented on Guitar Hero Live Won't Work With Your Old Gear...:

I was not aware that Rock band was receiving a new game too this year. Looks like that will be my 'back in' especially if it is on Wii U as well, though getting it on PS3 would probably be the smart thing to do.



AshFoxX commented on Hands On: Hitting the Tracks in Mario Kart 8 D...:

Very happy with the courses for this new set of DLC, though I'd have loved to see an updated Choco Mountain, Frappe Snowland or Koopa Troopa Beach from 64. I am however a little disappointed with the character roster since three of the four are all Animal Crossing characters, one of which could have been combined into one character (Male/Female Villager) but Dry Bowser is a happy return to the series as I loved him in MKWii. Characters just don't have the same punch as including Link, but then again it's also not as useless as including alt outfits for Peach and Mario which, once again, should have been combined with their respective drivers as alt outfits in the same way Shy Guy, Yoshi and even the Mii's now can do.

Also a bit disappointed that the new karts were described in text instead of shown in the article, but I suppose I don't have long before I can get a good look at them. I hope this isn't the last we will see for MK8 DLC, I could support new content in this game until the cows come home.



AshFoxX commented on Zelda-Style Adventure Midora Runs Out Of Kicks...:

I'm glad the development team is working on the side of not releasing something they will not be proud of, but setting a kickstarter goal means just that. If all the money is spent, well, you are screwed. These things do happen, but it puts you in a rather precarious position since a LOT of people at this point gave you money, and they have no product. Adding to the game after the kickstarter is done knowing it will go over budget is just bad. This attitude is what killed Duke Nukem Forever and put it in development hell for 12 years.



AshFoxX commented on Turn It Up To Eleven, Guitar Hero Is Making A ...:

I will definitely be all over this. I'm one of the three or four people who were disappointed after Rock Band 3 came out and the fad was over. Personally I preferred Rock Band and I will miss customizing my band member, but I am so ready to rock out again :D



AshFoxX commented on The Scrappers Will Be Out to Get You in SteamW...:

WOw. Steamworld Dig never caught my attention due to 'digging holes' not sounding very fun, and the gameplay videos did little to sway me. Heist on the other hand reminds me of a small dash of Abe's Odyssey and a helping of Codename S.T.E.A.M (or X-Com, or Valkyria Chronicles depending on what you have played.)

If the price is right, I won't mind adding this to my 3DS.



AshFoxX commented on Project X Zone 2 Crosses Over to the West For ...:

I must have missed the reveal from the first one as this is my first time seeing anything from this budding 'franchise'. I am delightfully intrigued, and I hope the first game isn't one of those elusive 'Ocarina of Time 3D' scrapes to find a physical copy because I would like to see first hand how it plays.



AshFoxX commented on Games Consultant Believes Nintendo NX Could Be...:

It's gonna be a small 'ouya sized' box you put on a table that interfaces with a lightweight 'helmet' device. When activated, you will enter a VR program where you can play NES up to Wii U games in a 'virtual' environment with the original 'virtual' controllers, and even some extra stuff like a Virtual Boy simulation and even a simulation that allows you and your friends to hook your 'virtual' GBA consoles into a 'virtual' Gamecube and play a 'virtual' version of Zelda Four Swords on a 'virtual' 47' CRT television.

You can even blow 'virtual' dust from your 'virtual' copy of Banjo Kazooie and be able to 'virtually' smack the side of your 'virtual' television to fix the 'virtual' scrolling that happens sometimes with the 'virtual' coaxial cable setup on a 'virtual' 'channel N', which is the VR equivalent to channel 3.

Actually, I just wanted to see the word 'virtual' in a couple of paragraphs mentioned 15 times.



AshFoxX commented on Reaction: Confirmation of Unity on the New Nin...:

OKAY! Okay, Nintendo. You keep revealing more and more that is only possible on a N3DS, enough so that in the near future i will be buying one and giving my precious red and black XL to my best friend... But seriously, I am still not happy with the current N3DS colors in the US.



AshFoxX commented on Review: Donkey Kong 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

I just got severe PTSD from that picture of Tiny racing the beetle down the tree... If I could kill a moment in my life, it would be spending far too many hours trying to secure that banana, only to find out there is another race later... THE ANGER SHARKS ARE SWIMMING IN MY BRAAAAIN!



AshFoxX commented on Weirdness: Hospitalised Man Steals More Than $...:

What 8-year-old walks around with two DS's? At least when I have my two systems, one is my 3DS XL and the other is the DSLite which is necessity as the battery on the 3DS XL is junk.

Also, if the mother knew about his 'shady' past, how is she surprised that this happened at all? And why call police, just walk back in there and be like "Give it back to me, Dave." and wave her finger at him in that matter-of-factly way she do... you know what I mean. "I knew he liked to steal things, this is low." What did you expect? You should not be surprised.



AshFoxX commented on 3DS eShop Title Titan Run Is Attack On Titan I...:

Of course it's simple, it's D3 who are known for their simple budget games in Japan. More importantly, how about instead of yet another runner for 3DS, can we please have Earth Defense Force?! At this point I'll take an eShop port of the first one.



AshFoxX commented on Reaction: LEGO Dimensions Could be a Sales Phe...:

I am intrigued with this idea as LEGO games are the only ones my 4-year-old nephew can comprehend, and his mom and I also have fun playing them since they are basically lite puzzle beat-em-ups which always hit a pleasure zone in the back of my head. Watching the trailer though, I almost thought it was for a sequel to the LEGO Movie, which honestly would be pretty sweet too.



AshFoxX commented on This Rodea the Sky Soldier Special Edition is ...:

Do we have any other info about this game? I'd like to see some general gameplay from both versions. (If it was posted before, forgive me, I'm working my way back a few days since I don't have the luxury to check up every day:))



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo's Super Spring Sale Shines Light on S...:

Too bad Ninty never goes as far as the Steam sales, and even the recent Flash sales I've seen on the PlayStation Store where games were severely discounted, instead of just 10%-20%, it was like 80%-95% off. I picked up quite a few PSOne games I had been pining after for under $10, and even a couple PS2 games in that same transaction. Now I can finally try Katamari Damacy, and it only cost me about $0.90.



AshFoxX commented on Video: The Importance of Co-Op Gameplay in Mod...:

It goes without saying, couch co-op every time.

@yokokazou I have been thinking the same thing for Zelda 4 Swords. Wii U and 3DS are much more appropriate for a remake/re-release of that game. I had always wanted to try it too, but those GBA link cables (and another friend in MY circle that HAD a GBA) were harder to come by than a GC adapter for the Wii U in the wild now.



AshFoxX commented on Feature: The Best Alternate Reality Super Nint...:

I've been seeing a lot of Dune love as of late despite never having known about it until I started visiting this website about 1 1/2 years ago (?) Am I crazy or is this more of a fandom for the EU readers? Y'all got me interested in the movie at the very least.



AshFoxX commented on Poll: Is Splatoon a Blockbuster That'll Help R...:

I'm so happy that Splatoon is getting some love in a lot of areas I didn't expect. When I first saw it, I was actually not all that impressed, but to be fair my FPS preference is basically Duke Nukem 3D and Unreal Tournament 2004. I have this on my radar, I just hope it can live up to the hype. If it does, it might take off just enough to pull the Wii U out of obscurity at the very least.



AshFoxX commented on Empty Slots on Super Smash Bros. Site Suggests...:

SSB needs more Sunsoft love. Hebereke characters (especially Hebe himself, O-Chan and 'Shades' whose Japanese name I always forget) and SOFIA THE 3RD from Blaster Master would make me buy the SM4SH games all over again, even if they were only added as assists or something.



AshFoxX commented on Video: This 200cc Mario Kart 8 Comparison Foot...:

I am looking forward to putting my MK skills to the test when this finally drops, but I have a small concern about the thin line between fun and broken. Guess only time will tell, and worse case scenario, 150cc will always be there.

Anyone who wants to see a truly broken experience, get a N64 gameshark and Mario Kart 64 with the 300cc cheat enabled and you will really understand why I am slightly concerned.



AshFoxX commented on Video: Donkey Kong 64 Tumbles Onto Wii U Virtu...:

I have the physical banana yellow cart and a self-refurbished console that works very well but I still want to buy on Wii U mostly because the N64 controller still gives my hand cramps. Also, a digital manual would be very nice indeed :D

edit what they didn't tell us is that we will have to get the Wii U Expansion Pack to play it. :p



AshFoxX commented on Nintendo Reveals the Final Club Nintendo Elite...:

How do you guys get multiple rewards?!

Anyway, I went with Yoshi's New Island because it was the only one here I didn't already have or had any interest in buying at some point. I would have gotten Mario Golf, but I just so happened to have used my Amazon gift card on it a couple days ago so no point in having 2 of them.

Looks like I have to delete my Pokemon Y game to make room... God I hate SD card space on these things, ad it's too expensive for me to upgrade right now.



AshFoxX commented on Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains Launches O...:

any word on the possibility of a demo or suggested eshop price? cuz if this is gonna be one of those 30$ games, I will have to pass. It looks to me it should be worth at MOST 10$, likely in the 7.99$ to 14.99$ range.



AshFoxX commented on It's Not An April Fool, The Binding Of Issac: ...:

I actually bought the original Binding of Issac on Steam mere days before Rebirth was announced and kicked myself square in the... well, you get the idea. At least now I have a reason to buy Rebirth since it can be on my 3DS which I take pretty much everywhere now.



AshFoxX commented on Video: Super Mario 64 Leaps Onto Wii U Virtual...:

So I'm just curious since I hate playing pre-HD console games on an HDTV, does this actually clean up well on a flat screen or is my Wii VC version wired into my trusty CRT still the better option? I tried running my N64 through a flat screen once as a means of necessity but it was a horrid experience. I know that was with RCA cables and Wii U uses an HDMI cable so that is why I wonder if it's worth finally transferring my data and paying an extra 2$ since I alreay own about half of the Wii VC N64 games.
