BakaKnight commented on Pokémon Shuffle is Heading to Android and iOS...:

@Sir_JBizzle I'm pretty sure SpotPass doesn't count in their numbers, especially since it actually don't download the game, only the icon.

All you have in your menu (which has one of the best themes in my opinion ;)) is an empty icon. Just try open it, a simple click on "no" and the game won't download while the icon will be deleted.



BakaKnight commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Approach to Transfor...:

Personally I love Nintendo risky attitude, sure now we are talking of extreme cases, but even more "canon" sequels often have some features or changes that can throw a fan outside the comfort zone previous games builded.

I admit, by nature people prefer more of the same, more of what they know they love and I'm no exception to that, but so far Nintendo got it right very often (if not always XD) when they "betrayed" my expectations.

However it worries me how some fans reacted, I can understand the dissapointment many felt, but it's incredibly sad and annoying how some fans are trying to hate as much as they can some unexpected spin-off. Can't they just focus on saying/shouting/"petioning" they are tired to wait a new main entry without bashing the spin-offs? -.-;



BakaKnight commented on Ganondorf, Palutena, Dark Pit and Zero Suit Sa...:

I got Palutena and Zero Suit with preorders, but to be fair it's since the Splatoon wave that things are slowly getting better and better. Wave 4 was a joke, preorders lasted less than 24h and no store ever saw them in stock, but now preorders last weeks and some figures even reach stores.

There is still hope for amiibo!



BakaKnight commented on Splatoon Version 1.3.0 Update Due on 30th June...:

Dammit... I use both the ninja swim and the stealth jump >.<;

I'm not sure how much the ninja even needed the nerf (or maybe I'm not good at abusing it), but I can understand the stealth jump, I did a ton of bad surprises to the opponents by landing right behind them XD And indeed the "slower" jump is pretty much the same of the normal one right now ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Splatoon Hackers Make Octoling A Playable Char...:

@Splatburst I know they are different weapons, but it's pretty obvious one is designed to look like a modified version of the other XD

But my point was refered to the weapon in the video be unlocked, I don't remember it being already aviable officially, which mean they hacked even the future weapons's updates... I know hackers got the infos about them, but I didn't know they even managed to load them up from the disk.



BakaKnight commented on Splatoon Hackers Make Octoling A Playable Char...:

Since Octolings plays as Inklings I doubt that Nintendo planned to have them as playable characters, however those bad girls/octopus have a huge fanbase; I won't be surprised if this will influence the game in future updates.

Anyway... isn't also the weapon hacked? I'm pretty sure my Splash-o-matic doesn't have a "megaphone" attached and neither those sub and special.



BakaKnight commented on Sonic The Hedgehog is Now 24 Years Old:

Happy birthday Sonic! ^o^

I feel like I grew togheter with the hedgehog, I still remember the mornings playing Sonic 2 on my new shiny Megadrive before going to the Kindergarten, best way ever for start the day XD

We were so young back then, so full of hopes, then years passed and things didn't always go as we planned, but it's never too late for spin dash back into the glory, right my old blue-blurry friend?



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 25th June (Europe):

Quite a good week, if I was in search of something new to play I would have quite some options there!

I'm a bit angry however with NoE, Tecmo or whoever is to blame for how quietly Samurai 3 release is sneaking around. I completly forgot the game even existed until I saw it last week popping on the eShop. It would have been probably a must buy for me, but I just recovered Orochi 3; two warriors games at the same time would be too overwhelming >.>;



BakaKnight commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

No thanks, no need to watch at the bright side, that's something you do when there is a dark/bad side and I still fail to really see it ^_^;

The Digital Event lacked, as mentioned, few things like the eShop games and I missed the segment different for each region (I always thought that was the best part of having these videos in place of a conference), but at this E3 Nintendo still managed to show many games I'm looking forward too; I hope the next years they won't forget any piece, but as long as they gonna show me that many games I want to play are coming then I can only be happy ^o^



BakaKnight commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:

@rjejr You are kidding right? Or doing a complain against the Digital Event maybe? There is no way that Iwata preapered a japanese statement on twitter as a emergency plan for a possible wordwide backfire XD

I'm positive they knew the risks some projects could cause, but if they invested in them months and resources then they trusted those ideas and they believed that many fans would have appreaciated them.
The negative feedback online is on a level they surely didn't expect (ack... I still can't believe it got to this level...), but let's even say they feared it, there is NO way that a company would apologies in front of the first few negative comments; that is like throwing a LOT of wood in a small fire for stop it, it can only end very badly XD



BakaKnight commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:

It's sure that Iwata didn't apology, it's more than just beliavable, that tweet was made just a couple of hours after the event, no president of a company would pubblically state they owe an apologies as soon as the first few negative comments online arise ^_^;;;

Surely they're gonna sum ups feedbacks and reactions once the E3 is over and they'll take some decisions based on those (something that would happen even with a succesful beloved result, mind you), but all that will happen in weeks, not few hours XD



BakaKnight commented on Smash Bros. Presentation Confirms Ryu and Mii ...:

@FLUX_CAPACITOR Stores like those you mentioned, in my area in Italy (which include one of the main cities, not a forgotten wasteland) amiibo are almost absent from stores. In most cases there aren't shelves full of them, just a couple of abandoned amiibo left alone with the Wii U games since it's pointless to make a shelf specifically to carry two figures XD;;;



BakaKnight commented on Good News, Zelda Fans, A Free Costume Awaits i...:

A nice unexpected surprise from Tecmo-Koei and Nintendo. To be fair this costume show why Link's tunic has always been redesigned for 3D titles (seriously, on Warriors' Link that's a dress, period >.>;;; ), but any excuses is good to get back and doing an extra battle in the game XD



BakaKnight commented on Surprise eShop Sale Discounts Up To 30% Off Do...:

Luckily it's not just a North American treat, there are similar discounts in Europe too, guess it's time for recover Dream Team!

(But to be fair there are MANY more discounts in NA, the discounted games in Europe are only 4-5 for each platforms)



BakaKnight commented on Reaction: Nintendo's E3 Digital Event Brought ...:

It wasn't a "bad" digital event in my opinion, it was even great in some regards. Afterall they showed many games I can't wait to play and that was the most important thing. Still there was a lack of "super-shock-factor", so I can understand that the most hyped ones are not satisfied (especially those that were 100% sure to see the new AC on Wii U).

What dissapointed me however was the lack of different videos for the different regions, like Shibata speaking for NoE, and I found weird that they had litterally nothing to say for eShop and VC.



BakaKnight commented on Video: Check Out the Official Trailers for the...:

Tried them all, it was surely worthy and interesting to play all the demos even if I think I'll buy very few of those games at the end.

Freedom Planet is awesome, it's uncannily Sonic-like, but very fun to play! (Getting released after the digital event maybe? No? Such a shame ;_; )

And of course Soul Axiom is made by Wales Interactive, those guys love the "Keep Memories in pc for when you are dead" theme XD But from the demo I failed to understand if they wanna be creepy like in Master Reboot or if this new game will be less horror...

I'll surely avoid Extreme Exorcist, from the demo it seems great and well done, but in games I always enter rage/panic-mode when enemies start copy my movements, a game focused on that is not for me XD

Overall this was a nice unexpected E3-afternoon I could experience from my room in Italy, Nintendo is starting very well this year!



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 18th June (Europe):

I'm actually surprised they gave the download update this monday, with the digital event tomorrow I was sure this update would have been delayed for contain all the infos... Let's hope they are just trying to act normal while preapering some shocking "Avaiable after this presentation/in this week update" thing.



BakaKnight commented on Smash Bros. Presentation Confirms Ryu and Mii ...:

It's quite funny how Nintendo is still pushing the amiibo. Sakurai showed us how Amazing the new amiibo are, how incredible it is to have the full collection, then you run in stores ready to toss all the money you have and there are no amiibo to be found XD



BakaKnight commented on Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Smashes Reco...:

Naaah, it's not a record, not even something worth mentioning. This kind of games have no market anymore and noone wants to play them, even less pay for play them, all this "beating records and being a succesful project" is clearly a mistake, right Mr. "Big Publishers that know what gamers want and clearly know that gamers could never wish for a game like this"? XP



BakaKnight commented on Hyrule Warriors Is Slashing Its Way to 3DS:

Oh oh!!!! Looks very interesting, I loved the first Hyrule warriors so I won't skip this one :D

Even more interesting, seems like "Hyrule Warriors All Star" will be the equivalent of "Dinasty Warriors Chronicle"; the video clearly show the ability to switch between the generals that are on the battlefield, I wonder if there will be other Chronicle's features added in.



BakaKnight commented on Poll: We Need to Talk About amiibo - Where Do ...:

Love the amiibo as figurines, but their interaction with games is weak and the stock make it look like nintendo not even care about them (which completly clash against everything else pointing out how much they actually care).

For the use in games I can understand Nintendo, they are still working in finding that sweet spot where the figures will be interesting for games without damaging those not owning them, but the stock issue is a damage to the brand. There are too many stores not having amiibo or just display barely one or two of them in a corner, mixed with Nintendo's accessories or games, while Skylanders and Infinity figures have many shelves and visibility.

I'm aware that making too many amiibo could mean to have many unsold ones, but right now the product pass unnoticed to the average customer or tease players with advertisment inviting them to try a feature they will never get access to (seriously, how many chances there are for a random customer to buy today the latest Kirby game and buy one or all of the connected amiibo? Very VERY thin if we talk about the Kirby amiibo, zero if we talk of the three togheter. Even worse, this was probably true since the day the game got released).

I really hope Nintendo is working a lot on that restocking and more production, they are clearly far from filling the demand, there is no reason for holding back (or at least I have an hard time seeing it ^_^; ).



BakaKnight commented on Rumour: Code Digging With amiibo Raises Potent...:

Kinda no surprise there (in the speculation, the coding stuffs are always interesting!), they coded the pokemon amiibo so that they can even make the whole range if they wish so. It's unlikely they'll get that far, but in case they want all of our money and blood then everything it's already set!



BakaKnight commented on Splatoon Producer Inks Out Reasons For Lack Of...:

I played with a friend while we were having outside-the-game voice chat and must say I noticed no difference in the results. Sure with a friend it's nice to comment the match, but strategically it was way faster to act according to each other actions than speak about plans XD

@Kaze_Memaryu Not sure if it fills at least partially what you mean with "train on a map to get a rough idea on how it works.", but at least it's possible to enter the empty map for check it out and learn its secrets and layouts before playing with other 7 people in it, I found it pretty useful when they added the new map.



BakaKnight commented on Video: We Check Out The Squid amiibo Challenges:

Got all the amiibo and finished the challanges today.
To be fair those challanges are dissapointing, I was expecting some real "mission mode" like defeating enemies in an area or covering enough with the ink, instead all challanges ask only to replay a mission already beated in single player with different equipment or rules.

At least the prizes are nice, especially the minigames, but the challanges only streatch a lot the single player experience instead than adding more to it.



BakaKnight commented on Hands On: Checking Out Splatoon's Freshly Unlo...:

Splat Zone is surely a pure chaotic-strategic mode (whatever that means).

Did few matches this morning and it was interesting, depending the map the weapon balance changed drastically putting different players in the leadership.

However I disagree that "you can easily pull your weight and tip the balance in your favour" in all my matches I found out that having the right allies was very important, just a player not doing his best can give a huge chance to the enemies' attack >.>;



BakaKnight commented on Poll: Early Impressions on Splatoon and That A...:

I can't believe it, but I'm playing online A LOT. I'm not a fun of online multiplayer usually, but with Splatoon I barely touched the single player campaign and did many turf wars.

It's true that there are some problems (like the few maps), but I'm having so much fun that I keep forgetting about them XD



BakaKnight commented on NIS America Confirms Euro Launch Dates For Etr...:

I still have to complete Overclocked and I'm not sure if I'll even continue it (so many games, so little time... ), I doubt Record Breaker will get on my list ^_^; But the 30th October is still far away, maybe I'll be ready for more Devil Survival by then!

(By the way, I had to check the game's page for see the release date, did I missed it or this article about release's dates have no date whatsoever in it? >.>;;; )



BakaKnight commented on Curve Digital Discounts Wii U Titles By 50% in...:

Got Stealth Inc 2, now I understand why it was so praised at launch, really a great game!

By the way, these discounts started a week ago, I don't think they were made cause the humble bundle, unless Curve Studios expected an european backslash and did a preemptive attack/discount XP



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Wanted To Make Its Humble Bundle A Gl...:

Considering the Humble Bundle right now have games not released in EU I doubt they are talking of this bundle or anything happening really soon.

Anyway I'll be really glad to see an offer like this open Worldwide, if I understood well this is doing charity while getting amazing games in return right? I can't really see anyone not be interested in that :)



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 28th May (Europe):

Nothing for me this week as I preordered Splatoon retail, after all this hype and those fun testfire I'll surely being busy the weekend with Splatoon alone, no need to download anything else XD



BakaKnight commented on Inazuma Eleven GO: Light & Shadow Kicks Off In...:

@TheMONADO36 Any? I played all of them >o>;;;

An amazing serie, it's definitly fun with a catchy gameplay and a ridiculus soccer-focused story; it's not perfect to be fair, but I spent hundreads of hours having fun with it before the flaws managed to annoy me, so I can only recomand it a lot XD

@DEAD I was wondering the same... If GO is the first title getting there, then they are doing a mess, especially since the GO serie is heavily influenced by the original trilogy, with ton of references and key story elements related to it >.>;

I guess we should remember this serie as an example of how to NOT export a game Worldwide, I really hope Level 5 will do a much better job with Yokai Watch...



BakaKnight commented on Reminder: The Final Splatoon Global Testfire i...:

Can't wait for this testfire!
I missed one of the previous three hours for a very stupid reason, but now I'm gonna recover it :D

@ultraraichu That group is not just a tease, it can cause serious cases of envy XD
I checked it today and for that little I saw it's pretty obvious that many of the ones holding a review copy are not even reviewers. It's not new that there are people with the right contacts getting games very early, but that miiverse shows that there are much more damn lucky "squids" than I thought >.>;



BakaKnight commented on Editorial: The eShop's Pricing Dilemma is the ...:

I guess I'm "victim" of the discount trend, and not from digital habits. Even when games were only retail it was pretty common to find discounts after a shortwhile (it was just a matter to check regularly the stores instead than a comfy tapping on a screen); cause of this I always considered a game NOT worthy of full price if a long period passed from the release >.>;

If I'm REALLY interested in a game and the wallet is healthy then I get it at launch full price, no problem or complains, but, if I can't get it at launch or I'm simply not enough interest in the game when it launch, then I'll never consider to pay full price for it and I'll surely wait for a discount (or, as I still do with retail, hunt down a discounted copy, it's actually the only "shopping" I love to do XD).

Just for be clear, I don't mean that my logic is right, ack, if a game is a month old I could already not consider it worthy of be payed full price and I can imagine how many would disagree with me, but this is just how discounts influenced me, so I can see very directly one of the many problems of excessive sales.



BakaKnight commented on More Club Nintendo Goodies Coming To The Europ...:

Darn, so many good stuffs, makes me regret I ordered the Majora Lamp O.O;

I expected a couple of updates, but not such a huge one! Luckily I still have some stars, I should manage to get one or two of those goodies (the come back of the Zelda case is very welcome indeed).



BakaKnight commented on Video: We Tackle The Dual-Stick vs. Motion Con...:

Maybe because I didn't play many shooters in my gamer experience, but I had no trouble using the motion controls of splatoon, if anything it feels very natural to move the gamepad around for have a less rigid view of the surroundings.

I admit however that I had troubles sometimes in splatting the opponents, especially at close range, but that wasn't a problem of the controls, it's my aim that is terrible XD



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Hoping That Splatoon Will Tempt Lapse...:

I wonder "how" they hope to hook those not owning a Wii U.
The Global TestFire was good for convince Wii U owners on the fence, but what can catch the attention of those not owning a Wii U? Advertisment? Events? Friends talking about it? Sure these things could work, but they're barely the tip of the iceberg...
I hate to say so since I'm not one of those particularly against Nintendo's policy for youtube, but that's the ground where most shooters grew their audience in the last years and probably also Splatoon would benefit a ton from it, maybe even more than those shooters thanks to its charm and very wide target audience, but we all know why it won't happen >.>;
