BakaKnight commented on Rumour: UK Retailer GAME Is Shipping Captain T...:

This is hilarious XD
In the UK there is a retailer breaking the date two weeks earlier while in Italy Captain Toad will come out on January 9th cause most retailers won't be able to get it in stock for the 2nd >.>;;;

Are the UK retailers more efficents or it's just that we are lazy in Italy? ...



BakaKnight commented on Feature: Time to Vote For Your Game of the Yea...:

These lists looks great, hard to regret be a Nintendo gamer with so many good games around OwO

The only "let down" for me was the eShop on Wii U, I know some of those games are "super-awesome" in theory, but fact is that none of them are even in my wishlist ^_^; (Please don't kill me Shovel Knight's fans >.>;;; ).
A bit surprised to see the Sonic Boom games as options, but I guess it's just fair to give them a chance despite the critical fail.

Anyway can't wait to see the results, so many potential winner in those lists :D



BakaKnight commented on Weirdness: Sony Uses Art From Super Smash Bros...:

As others said, that pic is 20th year of gaming also, but surely not only, related to the playstation.

Aren't we falling a bit in false advertising here? XD
Ack... definitly false advertising since they even used a model of a character from a totally not sony game >.>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

@BensonUii I heard Captain Toad was delated and it's pretty much ridicoulus (maybe to the point of be funny XD). I mean... we are such great workers here, Nintendo Italia can't release the game because too many stores will be enjoying the Holiday and have no time for get it in stock on date.
And of course the eShop version got delayed too for "respect" that. I understand the reasons behind such choice, but I start to really think digital distribution should stop caring for the retail counterpart, especially if cases like this have to happen -.-;;;

And I don't feel to trust the preorders for amiibo, the fact amazon placed the third wave avaiable to preorder doesn't confirm there won't be exclusive, it only confirm Amazon can't wait XP But I sure hope they are instead well informed and the third wave won't have any exclusive in Europe.



BakaKnight commented on Rosalina & Luma amiibo Exclusive to Target in ...:

I wonder if the exclusive trend will hit Europe too...
Last time it happened it was for the Hyrule Warriors DLC preorders and that caused some DLCs to never appear in few countries, like Italy missing the SkywardSword one.
I wonder if Nintendo would allow that to happen again and have some amiibo NOT released at all in some countries, that would be the final prove Nintendo doesn't want our money >.>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Video: The Top Ten Worst Designed Pokémon Ever:

I'm totally on the opposite side of this top 10 XD

Most of the Pkmn mentioned, like Tropius and Rypherior are... well, not my most favourite Pokemon, but right behind them (and I also loved overall the V generation ^o^).

I wonder if that means my tastes are really bad >.>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Talking Point: What's Next For amiibo?:

Honestly I would prefer Nintendo to NOT make a game requiring amiibo like Skylanders or Disney, but I see very few possibilities for make amiibo appear more special without "cheating" like that ^_^;
Then again it's Nintendo we are talking here, so I can't wait to be surprised by how they'll manage to pull out something special with amiibo without copy the bad examples of the other "game-toys".



BakaKnight commented on Review: Tested With Robots! (Wii U eShop):

Honestly... who is the genius that thought to put a grey background behind a grey main character? >.>
This game is not just bad or lazy, the screenshots alone give the impression it was made without even checking what was on screen at least once ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Shows Off NFC eShop Payments for New ...:

It's a cool feature, too bad in Italy those kind of payment cards barely exist (if they exist), which mean that even when the New 3DS will be out here that function won't work...

Not that this change much, I want a New 3DS anyway XD



BakaKnight commented on Rumour: Villager, Marth & Wii Fit Trainer amii...:

So these characters got discountinued right after being placed on the market?
Am I the only one finding this too hard to believe? ^_^;

I can understand them getting discountinued soon, but this is so soon it's like they are saying Nintendo discountinued them even before releasing the amiibo XD

But no doubt those figurines now will sell very well even at very high prices if this rumour will spread around the net ^O^ Ingenius marketing is ingenius >o>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal (3DS):

The demo was pretty fun IMO, not perfect, but very fun, I was even afraid the 4 character gameplay could become a problem in later levels, but sound like they managed that fine.

Too bad that instead they didn't manage at all the game lenght and the criteria for progress further -.-;;; This is definitely a game I'll gladly buy at a cheap price and it's damn sad that I have to say this (again) about a Sonic game...



BakaKnight commented on Parent Trap: Amiibo Packs a Hidden Family Payload:

In concept the amiibo are great, the companion/rival thing is interesting and much better than the "get the toy or else no character for you" way of the other games, but I'm not sure how "smart" these toys can be...

My Link become quite good at level 50 (ack... he is better than me in certain aspects XD), but he really lack some crucial thinking/program; maybe I'm wrong, but it seems he keep using a single specific tactic/pattern and never dare to change it. I tried everything for force him to act differently, changed his specials to versions useless with his tactic and kept hitting him by repeting the same attack over and over, but nothing, he is super stubborn and show no intention to change approch >.>;

On the bright side the amiibos looks great as figurine to have around, but I won't buy many of them if that's what they can do better ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Guide: Training The Ultimate Pokémon In Omega...:

For now I only started the story, so it's early for think about EV.
I actually tried to use the Super training and filled the EVs of one of my pkmn, but it's boring and almost a torture to spend all that time in a minigame while a whole region awaits you XD

I will slowly collect reset bags and berry for clean my team post-game, enjoy the story is definitely my priority now :D



BakaKnight commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Facing Potential E...:

I don't play games online usually, but Smash Wii U "For Glory" mode it's exactly the exception I'm doing these days O_O;
I think I'll go back to my standard offline gaming, IF my Wii U will work the next time I turn it on, >_>;



BakaKnight commented on Video: UK Smash Bros. Melee Champ Charles Kimm...:

Mostly those were basics I know, but I admit I had no clue about the "Rage" system >.>;
And I'll take the advice about the dodging, I use it probably too often, making my actions predictable.

@KeeperBvK I don't think it's "fanmade" since it was posted by Nintendo UK, but they had a great idea by letting a smash pro doing the tips, it was definitly more useful than the typical beginner's guide.



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 4th December (Europe):

SMT: Overclocked discounted finally ^o^
I'll see if I manage to get it togheter with the Dark Witch game, it's not a big price getting both, but last week was very heavy on my game-wallet >.>;;;

Very curious to try the Sonic Boom demo. There is a lot wrong in that game, I understood that far, but maybe I'll find something I can appreciate in it anyway.



BakaKnight commented on Video: Here's How amiibo Works With Mario Kart...:

Got my first amiibo today, but still have to link my Link (sorry, couldn't resist...) to all the games.
Still if I have to be honest I'm not that impressed, so far the concept seems cooler on paper than in action >.>;

Anyway nice video, I'm sure everyone agree we need more videos with that lovely puppy ^o^ Ack... that's definitely a cute buddy to play with, much better and more cuddly than a plastic amiibo XP



BakaKnight commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Sadly I totally agree, Sega is pushing this beyond ridicoulus...

Sonic didn't fully fail in some recent games, but even when something was done right Sega was very happy to make a new game without learn from what was good and bad in the last entry...
Weird enough the Sonic Boom games are even a come back of the worst examples of Sonic past. Granted I didn't play them, so I'll keep my opinion limited, but (enjoyable or not) the Wii U game was clearly rushed out as an infamous older brother and the 3DS game sounds like a good solid game with almost no levels and lenght and again that happened in the past; Generations on 3DS was a very fun game...lasting 2 hours! Still remember my dissapointment when I finished the game in less than an afternoon >.>;;;

I have some patience and hope left, but it's very very thin after seeing Sonic degraded to a cartoon character with a mediocre tie-in game -_-;

@TheHumbleFellow Sega is the owner of the character and it was their decision to delegate to BRB and their responsability to keep an eye on the project. Sega can't be blamed for the specific glitches or wrong details in Sonic Boom, but they are the ones that surely checked the game and gave the okay in front of the final result.
The only excuse could be that Sega had to release the Sonic Boom games cause of the deal with Nintendo and no delay was admitted, but I can't imagine Nintendo forcing them to get the game out even if it was unfinished and glitchy ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on 1.5 Million Copies Of Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:

I will buy my copy this Friday, maybe in some stores the day-one was broken, but I'm not in such hurry XD

And I join the "Wander what it's gonna be next" mood; personally I wouldn't mind a slow down... I liked the new games so far and I'm impressed by how well they worked with the short development time, but an year is not enough for enjoy a pkmn game... I didn't play X and Y properly and I had to go back and complete White 2 very recently after discovering to my surprise that I didn't even visit the whole map of the game o_o;



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 27th November (Europe):

Hyrule Warriors is an unavoidable download since I already payed the full package XD

Very likely I'll download Smash, the phisical with adapter is tempting, but I got used to not-GC controller schemes and if there is a game you always want in your Wii U is gonna be Smash and unfortunately the Wii U doesn't have two disc-slots for allow that with a phisical copy XP



BakaKnight commented on Review: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric (Wii U):

This is ridicoulus... I hoped the Sonic Boom franchise was made for expand the Sonic Universe and give new life and spotlight to the Blue Blur, but instead it seems we got a game that is litterally a game based on a tv show and aimed at kids -.-;
I doubt I'll get this game, unless I'll see it very very cheap in a period lacking any good release.

Still Sonic is almost the symbol of my childhood, despite all I'll still wait and believe one day we'll get to see a good game of the hedgehog (yap, I'm hopeless XD)



BakaKnight commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Am I the only one that read the full review and didn't even notice the score was missing till the italics unavoidably catched my eyes?
Come on guys!!! Who cares for whatever number a reviewer could say when he actually did a great job for explain very clearly all you could need to know for judge the game yourself >o<

Anyway a question regarding the game! Is Special Smash like in Brawl, with special rules applied to all fighters or is it possible to apply them only to few fighters? (Like making only a character Metal).
I fear I already know to well the negative answear, but it's since Melee that I'm hoping for this feature ;_;



BakaKnight commented on Review: Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire...:

Soar makes Fly useless, that was what I was hoping to hear ^o^

Now I can go back preparing the eggs for Ruby without worry to have some Flying monster with me (not that I hate pkmn that fly, but I already trained all those I like too many times in 6 generations of games XD)



BakaKnight commented on Twili Midna Joins The Battle In Upcoming Hyrul...:

The "Twilight princess" pack more literally then we could have ever expected XD

Love Hyrule Warriors and I'll get the pack next week, but doubt I'll enjoy it pretty soon since Smash, Pokemon, Bayonetta and even the previous Hyrule Warriors pack still need my attention ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Resolution Doesn't Matter With 2D Games, Says ...:

True enough that sprite games suffer less from resolution changes, a 2D game like one for gameboy advance looks great even on the Tv screen while I only fear at how a 3D game for DS would look on television XD

Still I'm pretty sure that there is a matter of resolution even with 2D games, but I guess they only wanted to underline their game would benefit very little from higher resolutions, something I can find totally believable.

@Einherjar Was it necessary to mention GG3?
I hate to admit it on this site, but for the first time I wouldn't mind having also a Sony console, that was an impressive trailer, I didn't know the Guilty gear serie was still alive and kickin so well.



BakaKnight commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

Hardest poll ever XD

I really have no clue if I'll buy any amiibo and which ones... Got at this point I think I'll wait when they'll get released, then walk in the store and look at them till I won't see that special one that looks like the perfect buddy for some smash.

Afterall I often heard that it's the sword that choose its owner, maybe for amiibo is the same ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Little Mac Is Officially The Least Successful ...:

I really hope they'll never just "balance" out the roster.
Having a game of basically 50 characters with pretty much the same stats for "fair balance" purposes would just kill the game appeal ^_^;

And no, I'm not saying this as Little Mac user, the only thing I'm good at with the boxer is using his side special with incredible precision! No matter how small, I never miss a hole with that attack XD;



BakaKnight commented on Review: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade...:

@KTT Can't believe I didn't consider such possibility XD

True enough, eggs can be a weapon for bunnies too, my apologies to the Easter Bunny for forget about him!
But if that's the case then the develloppers own him more apologies than me for making him appear in a game like this -o-



BakaKnight commented on Review: Angry Bunnies: Colossal Carrot Crusade...:

Please tell me I read it wrong...

I understand it's only a bad made clone, but seriously... a bunny tossing down explosive eggs?!?! Couldn't they be... I don't know... carrots for example? DX
You can't get more lazy than that...



BakaKnight commented on Sonic Boom Exploit Allows Players to Skip Larg...:

This is getting ridicoulus...

I'm not worried by the glitches themselves, I mean, if I had to judge The Wind Waker HD from A+Start video (linked even here on NL not long ago) I would end to say it's a glitchy mess noone should play, but we all know that's not the truth XD

That said... I think glitches presence is normal in games as much as I don't feel to defend this specific game; unfortuantely the whole production value of Sonic Boom for Wii U seems pretty low...
Glitches apart, the art-style of the levels it's terrible from that little I saw, all so generic and monochromatic; even Sonic '06 despite it's game-breaking and fun-ruining glitches at least had some decent presentation.

At this point the only thing that could save Sonic Boom is it being very fun to play, that alone could make this game one of the best Sonic ones in recent years, despite the flaws, BUT between the apparently low production value and Sega decision to not provide review copies I hardly see any reason for hope this game hide any good -.-;



BakaKnight commented on Video: Early Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Footage...:

To be honest a single glitch means nothing; even the best games have that single wall devellopers missed to check. On the other hand I'm a bit dissapointed from the whole rest.

It's purely first impression, but this game looks a step back from Sonic Lost World. I know this one was not develloped by Sega, but that's no excuse...

On the bright side at least the 3DS demo was nice, it would be a first if the handheld version will result better then the home one.



BakaKnight commented on Review: Rock Zombie (Wii U eShop):

Sounds like a game I could have fun with, even if it's not the finest example of its genre.
I'll gladly purchase it when it'll get in Europe, hoping the price will be close to the US one.



BakaKnight commented on Eon Ticket StreetPass Relay Announced for Pok...:

Well... it's an interesting experiment... Curious to see if this streetpass thing will spread enough, but in any case this Eon ticket will surely get more shared than the original one of 12 years ago XP

@blackbeltbap @ShadJV Both games give you a Eon along the story, guarantee the use of the soar ability (Latios for Ruby, Latias for Sapphire), the Eon ticket is only for catch the other eon and have the duo complete.
You will only miss a single Pokemon without the ticket, all the other cool stuffs will be in the game ;)



BakaKnight commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:

"I’d much rather be where Nintendo is, with a differentiated platform, differentiated set-up experiences that we can provide uniquely to the consumer"

Not sure on the market how well and far such logic will work, but personally I'll keep be a super happy costumer as long as the big names at Nintendo will speak like this :D



BakaKnight commented on Single Player Campaign for Splatoon Detailed, ...:

After this news the game jumped into a must buy for me :D

Tried the multiplayer at an event and it was very fun, but I'm more a single-mode player then a multiplayer one, I can't buy a game with only multiplayers options!!!
With the solo mode confirmed you convinced me Nintendo, just complete the game and deliver it to my house ^o^



BakaKnight commented on Every Smash Bros amiibo Will Be Compatible Wit...:

Define amiibo compatible with Hyrule warriors is almost a joke >.>;;;

There is very little to say here, nice little add for those already planning to get an amiibo, nothing to lose for those that were not planning to buy them.

Then again I can understand Nintendo's struggle... Amiibo have to face off against Skylanders and Disney Infinity without using the same "We lock a lot of cool stuffs behind a wall of figures you have to purchase" philosophy, it's not easy to make figures a must-buy while playing so fair >.<;



BakaKnight commented on Sonic Boom: Shattered Crystal Demo Available N...:

Well, this was a real surprise...
Played a demo of Shattered Crystal at a games' event not long ago and I was dissapointed, but this demo is totally different, had lots of fun with it :D

I guess the main difference between the demos could be the level design... or it could just be that I didn't try well the game at an event with lots of other people and games around like smash and splatoon (and that's very more likely XD).

Anyway in a period with no releases I would totally buy Shattered Crystal after this new promising demo, but this is totally NOT such period >.>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Feature: What We Want to See in the November N...:

I would love to hear about something new to download right after the direct (or tomorrow afternoon, right in time with the download releases!), still I really hope to hear more about amiibos, those little figures looks so cool, but so far we barely know what good they can do apart looking good on a shelf >.>;

Anyway as long as the direct will be Nintendo related I'll be happy, so I really doubt I'll get dissapointed XP



BakaKnight commented on New Nintendo Direct Airing 5th November:

This is not a direct to be hyped for, this is a direct to fear...

They gonna show us all the awesome stuff that are coming for make sure we won't change mind right before the holidays.
Damn Nintendo and its awesome games killing my wallet >.<



BakaKnight commented on Video: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Opening Cin...:

Why everyone so surprised the opening is underwhelming? XP

If I remember well, when Sakurai explained the lack of a sequel to the Subspace mode he clearly stated a matter was that he believes cinematics can surprise the player only once and all the hard work making them back with Brawl felt wasted when most people saw the videos for the first time online with youtube&co. instead than seeing them by playing the game.

With the main man behind the game thinking this there is really no surprise the opening cinematic for the game is nothing extreme ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Exclusive: Masahiro Sakurai on Planned Acciden...:

Nice interview, can't believe he planned Greninja in a night O.O;
Can't wait to try it out for see if Sakurai just rushed it or he's a pure genius
(yeah, we already know the answear XD; ).

And very glad about a portable Smash; Sakurai is the savior of my daily-boring train trips ^o^



BakaKnight commented on Naughty German Retailer Breaks Super Smash Bro...:

I won't lie, as customer I'm keeping eyes and ears open in the hope I find a store doing an "early release", however this not change that for retailers this is an unfair cheat move. Raising the sales by taking advantage that the others are following the rules it's plain wrong and shouldn't happen.
