Auracle commented on Feature: What the Heck is Puzzle & Dragons? - ...:

"What the heck is Puzzle & Dragons?"

A better question would be, "What the heck is wrong with Luigi's hand in the above picture". I can see through it!

Regardless, P&D Mario Edition does sound intriguing, but I doubt I'll get it for awhile. I have enough to keep me occupied right now.



Auracle commented on The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Speedrun ...:

That was a lot of fun to watch! Very nice.

I'll be honest, I don't usually enjoy watching videos about other people playing video games, but I've found these speedrun vids to be quite entertaining. I remember watching an AGDQ for Metroid Fusion. I was fascinated by the precision techniques the runner used, especially since he explained what he did. I hope you'll continue sharing these videos, @ThomasBW84.

On a side note, does anyone know of a site that does a good job explaining how/why the exploits in this video work?



Auracle commented on Review: Mappy-Land (Wii U eShop / NES):

I used to love playing the arcade Mappy on one of those Plug-n-Play systems. Hitting Meowky with doors. Listening to that repetitive-yet-catchy chiptune background song. Being shocked when Goro suddenly comes out of nowhere and kills me. Good times.
I never knew the game got a sequel. I might just look into this.



Auracle commented on Mega Rayquaza Confirmed for Pokémon Omega Rub...:

...Is it November yet?
Oh man, Mega (or Primal) Rayquaza looks killer! I'm psyched that he'll be tied into the story, as I guessed he might. I wonder if the villainous team that isn't the main antagonist in each version will try to get its mitts on him...



Auracle commented on Mega Camerupt, Mega Gallade, and Mega Sharpedo...:

Yes! I predicted that there would be a Mega Sharpedo and Mega Camerupt what with them being Archie and Maxie's mains. They both look awesome. I find Sharpedo especially good, as it incorporates elements of a saw nose shark and a submarine. Mega Gallade also looks swell. It'll be very fitting for Wally.

So, Sea of Beginnings and Land of Endings? Oh, this is gonna be good!



Auracle commented on EarthBound Celebrates 20 Very Strange Years of...:

Mr. Itoi's answers would be wrong if he were in Moonside.

Anyways, I know I certainly enjoyed EarthBound. There's just nothing quite like it. I hope that everyone will continue to enjoy this game for years to come. It will always bring back the fondest of memories.

@TimLatshaw - I'd like to give you props for being one of the few writers/people to properly capitalize the 'B' in EarthBound. Enjoy a cup of Trout Yogurt on me!



Auracle commented on Mega Slowbro and Mega Audino Leaked for Pokém...:

Mega Slowbro looks hilarious! Poor guy was too slow to realize that he was being eaten.

I also think these reactions are funny. When a powerful Pokemon gets a Mega, people are like, "Megas are lame! They're making strong Pokemon too strong!" And then when a Mega is given to a weaker Pokemon they're like, "Megas are lame! Why did these weaklings get one?"



Auracle commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I'm very happy with the rewards. I've been wanting Game & Wario for a long time now, but it never panned out. Now, I get it for free!

Also, are people seriously complaining that they spent $600 for their 'reward'? I seriously doubt anyone bought all of those games just to reach Platinum status. Ya bought the games to play, didn't ya? You were going to get them anyways, right? Don't pretend like you just lost a $600 investment when you've still got a cabinet full of games.
