BakaKnight commented on Sonic Team Boss States That There Are No Plans...:

You better Sega, I have a Sonic amiibo ready to be used for unlock awesome amiibo features in an amazing well crafted Sonic game for Wii U. I honestly don't expect such crazy dream to become true, but try to get at least a bit close to it!



BakaKnight commented on GameStop Italy Lists Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

Honestly I'm not sure what to think of those preorders, it's a week they are open with no problem while the original preorders for the launch closed in less than a day.
I admit I made my order in case the listing is true, but I start to have doubts about it >.>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Study Finds That US Consumers Are Buying Wii U...:

If I got it right these reasons are those that consumers mentioned/pointed out, so what we have here is also a picture of what impressions each console left with its advertisment.
It's pretty obvious everyone did a good job in the image department since the consoles are selling with their strong points being exactly what Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft wanted them to be.



BakaKnight commented on Super Smash Bros. Soundtrack Release Has Been ...:

Considering that it's a gift and they are still guarantee to send it to everyone, I see no problem, plus it's only a delay of a month.

As long as they make sure to inform clearly and mantein the delivery promess, then they can even delay the dispatch in europe if needed of two months or more, I would have no problem with that (however I'm not sure how many fans would take it so lightly XD ).



BakaKnight commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

I really hope most of those stories are fake, so many awful attitudes for only a small profit O_O; I mean, it's not like scalpers can manage to resell amiibo for thousands of dollars and hopefully we will never get to such a crazy point...

Personally I only try to get the amiibo I like at default price, especially since Nintendo still have to show a very good game-related reason for buy them (actually without such reason I already considere the ones I have to be way more than I need >.>;;; ).
Indeed the only amiibo I bought this year was Sonic, no matter how useful/less the figurine will be or how uncertain his gaming future is, I'm still cheering for the fastest thing alive ^o^/



BakaKnight commented on Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U):

What really surprise me of the review is hearing that the original canvas curse is very highly considered between Kirby's games. Not that it was a bad game, a good one indeed, funny to play and easy to enjoy, but nothing really really great or remarkable.
Sounds like this sequel still didn't manage to find the right idea for upgrade the concept further; a bit of a shame, but at least it did not break it either, I'll take this game in consideration when it will eventually get in Europe.



BakaKnight commented on Pre-orders Now Open at GameStop for the Wii U ...:

Seems like Gamestop is having quite the restocking upcoming, the adapter in USA while in Italy (or Europe?) the Majora Mask 3DS.
I wonder if these restocks are just units Gamestop somehow failed to sale in stores or if Nintendo is producing more after seeing the actual demand.



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 19th February (Europe):

So many temporary discounts, but most of those games fall down to prices still higher than on phisical shelves...
I guess it's nothing for me this week, even if I would have gladly played some Kirby at a lower price... unluckily for me the only announced Wii title I don't own wasn't in the discounted first releases, but (of course!) it's the first full priced one XD;



BakaKnight commented on A Wild Update on Pokémon Shuffle Appears:

Those prices to me sounds quite fair compared to what most games on mobile do. Still I have no intention to pay for temporary play time, I'll try the game and see if the "free-pace" leave it enough enjoyable, else I have battleLink/Trozei to fix the itch for PokemonPuzzleMatching.



BakaKnight commented on Hasbro To Bring Yo-Kai Watch Toy Range to the ...:

I hope they''ll speed up in getting the games in the west or at least not fail the 2015 window, they already demolished the inazuma eleven potential with the ultra late europe releases and a single even later american one, Yokai watch seems to clearly have much more selling potential, ruining it by repeating the same mistake would be crazy DX



BakaKnight commented on Launch of The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask N...:

I understand the wish for get an awesome special edition, but I won't pay more than retail price for get it. Plus, personally, I just want my XL to be limited instead than of a plain color, surely there will be more limited editions announced in future.
What however worries me is nintendo's stock, if they'll keep their limited editions so litterally limited then I could risk to never get one >.>;



BakaKnight commented on Sonic Boom Sales Struggle to Explode as Sega C...:

It had no chance to sale well, the critics surely reduced the number of gamers giving it a chance, leaving mostly the sales to kids loving the tv show... which back when the game come out was a brand new show probably very few kids even heard about. Not sure what Sega was thinking >.>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Masahiro Sakurai Discusses his Thoughts on Vir...:

Sakurai already said all.
VR will have at least a chance of raising in the industry if it will offer something new and unique. If it will be just an extra gimmick for first person games then it won't last long.
On Nintendo side I doubt we will see anything, the VirtualBoy is a wound that started healing only recently afterall. Probably Nintendo will keep a close look at how the Oculus and other upcoming VR systems will do before decide if join in.



BakaKnight commented on Ubisoft's Unreleased and Finished Wii U Game H...:

Very likely this is the game they are not releasing O_O;
This is the definition of "unappeling to gamers, trap for casuals" a genre very strong on Wii, but the WiiU need a bigger userbase for turn such games in easy profits..... for the first time I'm almost hoping the WiiU to never succed, at least not too much ^^;;;



BakaKnight commented on Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Appears t...:

Definitely I'm not interested in games offering this option. As soon as Hyrule Warriors offered me to do it I refused and made sure to never hear of it again ^_^;
Still if there is any positive point in achievements that noone can deny then it must be the random weird names and seems like the devellopers of DK:TF were getting them right XD



BakaKnight commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Personally I give little to no weight to a review score, I find way more useful to read the actual review for understand if a game is for me. However I admit I find useful a list of scores if I'm only curious to check how the critics and/or the public received a game.
To be fair scores as concepts are not a bad thing, they are just a little data at the end of a review; problem is that nowaday those little numbers, stars or other random unit are considered much more important then the review itself. A reviewer can be right or wrong only depending on how he/she scored a game, no matter what he/she actually wrote about it and too many people seems to decide if purchase a game depending by the scores alone (for not mention the "Metacritic" matter).

It's not even useful to change scores for an "advice word" as gamexplain or Eurogamer; people will just start to give a value to every "advice", -Recomanded- so it's a 9-10 game, -Average- could be a 7 or 6, we are all too used to scores for not translate any sort of evaluation into it.

Still I think Nintendolife could manage to remove scores pretty easily, the Conclusion at the end of each review is usually a well written short text covering the resume-purpose of scores or one-worded advices without however sacrificing the meaning. On this site for remove scores is only needed to phisically remove that number and those stars at the end of the review, no need to change anything else or replace them.

Still I doubt any sites will follow Eurogamer example and I wonder if EG will last on its decision, afterall review sites need users and to be highly rated in the community and sadly scores conquered such an important place that for some sites I'm afraid it could be an half suicide to try to take them down...



BakaKnight commented on Weirdness: BAFTA Appears To Have Clean Forgott...:

Make no sense to call that an "handheld" category if they gonna ignore the releases on any handheld console. They're free to award the games they consider worthy, but what I'm seeing is a "mobile only" category then (and no, a game also on Vita can't count for handhelds, especially when the Vita version is not the main one, but just a port).



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 12th February (Europe):

Lot of goodies if I had my wallet ready and a fast click on elusive preorders ^_^;
As things are I'll only check the free Ironfall and Undead demo and maybe buy the one making me wish for more asap XP



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

I got it in Italy with my first streetpass, three or four days after the game got released and, if I remember well,before the Eon event for the few lucky ones took place in Italy. I hate to be a party's ruiner, but I fear it wasn't streetpass to be effective, but the "black Market" of illegal tickets ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Remains Silent on Third Party Wii Gam...:

I know it's a long shot and it's surely too early for hope so far, but I really hope that not only third parties, but also unreleased games will get a chance thanks to this digital distribution. It's safe to assume afterall that Nintendo won't release phisically anymore Wii games, but Japan still have some gold that never shared with us!



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Lists Formally Tested Micro SDHC Card...:

@PlywoodStick I honestly didn't know that Lexar have a reputation as bad manifacturer, but luckily I never had a problem with their SD cards. Althought I always suspected them to not be the top-class since they are usually the cheapest SD cards I find in stores.

I'll keep an eye and ponder more my options considering the infos you shared, but given the quality-price I experienced from them so far, I could even risk and stick to Lexar when I'll get a New 3DS.



BakaKnight commented on Dead Or Alive Producer Feels That A Cultural D...:

Fair enough, there are surely a ton of differences between west and east, but I always had the impression that some "bouncy selling points" works worldwide >w>;;;

That said, what I really can't stand are games showing beatiful ladies and awful gameplay cause they'll sell anyway. DoA is not in such range at all, the game is fun with deep technical fighting, I see nothing wrong in a well made game feautiring also "extremly" nice looking characters.



BakaKnight commented on Famitsu Article Reportedly Inks Out More Splat...:

@Yorumi Sorry to hear so, but in Splatoon defense, I could have completly misunderstood the real heart of the game ^_^;
The only thing I can absolutely grant is that the controls felt great, it was simply too fun to play it, which is why I kept going back to the stand.
All my blabbering about strategies it's just a personal opinion and even an unsure one of course, noone here have played enough the game for really know if and how much we gonna miss the vocal chatting in it and how stategies and single/team work will really play in the final product.



BakaKnight commented on Famitsu Article Reportedly Inks Out More Splat...:

@Quorthon I was not talking of advance tactics of course XD
But seriously, matches were so fast and chaotic that even a simple " watch your back" felt pointless, by the time you say that your ally already got away safe to a completly new area or got "splatted".
I don't say Splatoon is not strategic at all, but the stage and various matches I tried in it gave the impression the game rely a lot more on the good strategies and the rapidly reacting of each single by itself then a real well planned team work.

Of course I could be fully wrong and the game could really suffering from the lack of voice chat, but that little that Nintendo showed so far gave me the complete opposite impression .



BakaKnight commented on Famitsu Article Reportedly Inks Out More Splat...:

The single player mode have a lot of platforming? That sound promisingly fun! (no sarcasm, that shooting system plus good platforming sounds amazing :D)

And to everyone worried about the vocal chat, I wonder how many ever tried a demo of the game. I had the chance to play various matches at a game event and despite everyone of the team was (obviously) there, noone felt the need to communicate strategies or tactics. I was even playing with a friend and not even between us we felt the need to share any strategic comment or advice (except the many typical "how to...?" that always happen when trying a new game at a stand XD).



BakaKnight commented on ​Sakurai Considered Having All Fighters Unlo...:

Smash is probably the only game I really play randomly, without aiming to any goal or achievement; even with all characters unlocked from the begin, I would have enjoyed the game with no problems.
Still I admit it, it's an awesome thrill hearing the sound of a challanger approching, wondering who you gonna have to fight and having to beat it in a 1vs1 for gain the right to use that character.

In my opinion Smash didn't need to keep the unlockable system, but I'm glad it's still there, I'm surely in that range of players that "genuinely look forward to the -Challenger Approaching!- segments."



BakaKnight commented on Review: Undead Storm Nightmare (3DS eShop):

So this is basically a well-made upgraded version of the first Undead Storm with more focus on single player.
That's exactly what I wanted to hear! Surely gonna keep an eye on this game and maybe I'll even download it as soon as it get released in Europe if I'll be in the mood for shoot some zombies XD



BakaKnight commented on Review: Monster Combine TD (3DS eShop):

Not really a shocking review, this didn't seem a perfect game for begin with.
Still I'm not scared of resetting and the concept sound nice, I'll probably download it anyway soon or later (depending when the games I'm playing now will leave a little spare time for it >.>; ).



BakaKnight commented on Fans Demonstrate Changes From Sonic Boom: Rise...:

More than fixed, it looks like they only moved the lightsource of that scene, definitly look different, but I fail to see it as improved ^_^;

Really interesting the details about the file size. I was indeed thinking that the only way for make such a big update was cause they couldn't update the old maps and had to force players to redownload the whole thing again, but am I the only one finding such update to be more a damage to the player than a bless? (unless it fix some VERY critical aspects of course). I would prefer to miss an invisible wall than having to download the whole map for that DX



BakaKnight commented on Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds Soundtr...:

NoE clearly stated that they are going to update the catalogue till the end of the service, increasing the ways for spend the stars before they'll get useless; any of the "avid collectors", mentioned in the article, are just people who panicked before reading the whole shut-down warning ^^;

Personally anyway I have bigger problems right now, with Stars always expiring I ended to not register many games, now I have A LOT of surveys to do asap!!! @_@;;;



BakaKnight commented on Weirdness: Even Masahiro Sakurai Struggles to ...:

I honestly can't imagine Sakurai searching for amiibo in stores... and not envy the seller that had to tell him that he couldn't buy them >.>;;;

Still I wonder how much rare amiibo are really in Europe and Japan; not sure for the latter, but they were honestly easy to find here UNTIL all the sites covering america started to complain on the low stock, driving people in an amiibo frenzy all over the world. Nothing scare fans more than the "maybe this is ultra-limited" doubt (and I admit the doubt tricked a bit me and my wallet too XD; ).



BakaKnight commented on Inazuma Eleven GO Chrono Stones Ready to Kick ...:

Perfect timing!!!
I literally bought the first GO game few hours ago and the main reason of the purchase was for start the new trilogy in hope that Chronostone would be announced for Europe. Didn't expect my hopes to be reassured so quickly XD



BakaKnight commented on Review: Lucadian Chronicles (Wii U eShop):

Sounds like a must download for me, I love games about card games and the "try free, pay once if you like" formula is really something noone can complain about :)

Only matter... I need an EU release ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 22nd January (Europe):

Shin Megami Tensei sounds like a steal at that price O_O; But I got to deal with too many RPGs lately and still have a couple not started yet, I will have to skip this one for my own sake XD



BakaKnight commented on Resident Evil 4 Was Almost A Very Different Ex...:

Interesting concept that with nowaday consoles would be totally possible. We can have hundreads of characters on screen, some double maps and monsters ready to pop out are normal routine XD

Then again... with all horror games that came out in the last years, I'm pretty sure this idea so new back then now has been already abused (or maybe not? ^_^; ).



BakaKnight commented on Sonic Boom Gets a Whopping 1GB+ Update in Euro...:

The fans at Sonic Stadium must have missed a lot of upgrades, I mean... 1 GB for those changes sound crazy. If that's really all Sega and BRB did then this game deserve the crown for the less optimized update ever released ^_^;;;



BakaKnight commented on Pokémon Shuffle is a Match-Three Game With Sl...:

I trust Nintendo will make it right, but I'm definitly happy they are experimenting with a little spin-off and not some major game ^^;
Plus this sound too much like a free2play version of LinkBattle, be able to choose between a f2p and a pay-once title really make all this sound even fairer towards customers ^_^



BakaKnight commented on Rumour: Red New Nintendo 3DS XL With 13th Febr...:

Even if legit, this not confirm those games will come out the same date.
There could be some fine prints somewhere on the poster specifying completly different dates for those titles ^_^;

Still if it's true no big deal, the more is out, the more I can buy as soon as I can (even if with such case it won't be a day-one for everything, my poor wallet need some mercy XD ).



BakaKnight commented on Gallery: A Closer Look at the Latest Splatoon ...:

Not sure if Splatoon will be a GOTY and/or a succesful title, but between what I saw and what I had the chance to try, I already know this gonna be one of the funniest and more exciting game-experiences I will have in 2015 :D



BakaKnight commented on Capcom Outlines Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Loca...:

The only experience west audience has is with mashing the buttons when text pop up >.>
I bet users in this site, as me, are not like that, but lots of players just skip everything and want to get straight to the action, even if that means to complain later that they don't know what to do. I know that for those people a tutorial with a "yes" as default option is bad, but I'm not sure if removing such feature will help such audience ^_^;
