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 ^_^;



BakaKnight commented on Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Edition Was The ...:

I totally didn't expect that it was GungHo's idea to make such spin-off O.O

So it's Hyrule Warriors all over again, with an external company pitching a crossover idea about a game a big Nintendo name is liking right in the same period... These coincidences are getting a bit too hard to believe, but given the results I won't complain XD



BakaKnight commented on Fresh Batch of New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Ema...:

Wait... I was fine, or at least accepting their policy, till now, but this new mail sound terrible O_O;
So people who complained deserve a new chance? I hope those are not the only people added to a possible new "last chance list" else...gee... else I really need to stop be a good nice understanding fan >.>;;;



BakaKnight commented on Review: Mario Party Advance (Wii U eShop / Gam...:

So many negative comments I can't really agree with >.>;

This is a Mario Party game that intentionally changed a lot of key points for try to be more appeling on GBA (and maybe even for work well and properly on GBA); comparing it with the other games sharing the same name is unavoidable, but stopping there is really unfair to this title that, sure, it miss a lot of the classical feature, but also offer completly different options in their place.

In my opinion this is even quite a good game, not perfect or revolutionary, but fun in its own way; I fully agree with the review, words and score :)



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo and GungHo Online Entertainment Annou...:

Aounuma love the Warriors serie and we got Hyrule Warriors, Miyamoto got interested in Puzzle and Dragon and we gonna get the P&D Super Mario edition.
I love this Nintendo attitude to collaborate with other companies based on the games they like, can't wait to see which unexpected crossover we will get next :)



BakaKnight commented on Review: Toys vs. Monsters (3DS eShop):

I was tempted to buy it, concept and price got my attention, but eventually I bought other cheap games. Seems I didn't make a fatal mistake, even if I'm still tempted a bit despite the bad review (and bad trailer... is it only me finding it too amateurish? >.>; ).

@Barbiegurl777 There was a 50% launch offer, no glitch at all, just a gift from devellopers to early adopters we could say :)



BakaKnight commented on Undead Storm Nightmare Will Bring The Zombie A...:

The first one wasn't bad, but way too limited as single player experience (and having friends not willing to even spend 2€ for play multi didn't help XD). This sequel look much deeper and with a much robust single player experience, if no unexpected titles or special offers will show up I could download this day one :)



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Sending Out amiibo Surveys to Select ...:

Back when Smash come out there was a similar survey in Europe, most of the questions were of course for smash, but the last part of the survey was only about amiibo.
I should totally change my answers if I could do it again now, back then I said I was planning to buy less than 5 amiibo (if any) in the upcoming months, less than a month after the survey I had already surpassed that 5 amiibo limit >__>;;;



BakaKnight commented on New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Editions Already I...:

I'll keep thinking on the positive side, that I saved 200€ (since with the mail I would have bought this and the XL version probably), but... yeah, hard to not sobbing a little :'(

Anyway congrats for the lucky ambassadors, have fun ^o^



BakaKnight commented on Lucky New Nintendo 3DS Ambassador Gamers Jump ...:

It's definitely a shame that a promotion for fans' happiness clearly ended up also in favor of not-so-eager fans, but the only one to blame is Nintendo's way for pick the lucky ones.

But to be honest there is very little to blame even there, it's not just unlikely, but plain obvious that the data Nintendo has can't really tell which people will treasure the system and who is gonna sell it. Ack...I would be worried (or even scaried) if Nintendo had such deep datas about all of us XD

Anyway this is totally not my problem, I was hoping/worrying I had to choose if buy this system and surely I was going to keep it and enjoy it in such case, BUT the mail never arrived and I have no intention to buy it at an higher price (or at any price, getting the mail was a lucky chance to not waste, I'm not a collectionist needing this new 3DS version no matter what).



BakaKnight commented on Smash Bros. 2v2 For Glory Exploit Makes Pac-Ma...:

That was... oh my XD
These are the kind of things in games that woukd be super fun to discover if people wouldn't start abuse of them (which we all know is gonna happen -.-; ).
I guess a new small update will be needed, althought I wonder how many players can perform this in tandem perfectly...



BakaKnight commented on Reminder: Redeem Your Nintendo Network Deluxe ...:

Already retrieved and spent my last code before the end of the year, with the promotion expiring and the Christmas deals I ended to buy few games not in my originals plans, but with games like Child of Light and Steamworld Dig I doubt I will regret this extra purchases :)

(I need to find the extra time for enjoy them however >_>;;; )



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Download: 1st January (Europe):

If you are talking of the delay of Captain Toad, I don't think Nintendo Italy have any fault; our delay is been caused by a problem with retailers and (right or wrong) they have huge rights in having their sales protected.

In this situation it really feel wrong to my modest advice, but I doubt Nintendo Italy could do anything; I'm afraid it was basically forced to delay both phisical and digital release.



BakaKnight commented on Satoru Iwata Highlights Frustration at Missed ...:

Looking at the Wii U, the biggest missed opportuniy is to have the gamepad able to be indipendent. A home console which controller is actually a console by itself and even a tablet, I'm sure that something they considered, but most likely gave up for lack of time/resources, for avoid to compete against their own 3DS or just for keep down the WiiU's price.
All matters that indeed could cease to exist by the time they'll be ready to announce a new console.



BakaKnight commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

Double Dash for me! ^o^

In general I love all MK games quite at the same level, they are all differents, but they all manage to deliver very well, BUT I slightly loved a bit more the phisics of Double Dash, not by much, but if I have to pick a favourite then I'll go with that one.



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Rolls Out Kirby and the Rainbow Curse...:

@Sakura The unlocking of elements in game don't use the amiibo memory, so you can use them for unlock stuffs in multiple games without worring about their level in Smash. Hard to say if this new Kirby game will just unlock the costumes or power up Kirby everytime you tap the amiibo, but regarding the games already out, like Mario kart and Hyrule Warriors, once you tapped an amiibo the contenent is unlocked permanently and you don't need the amiibo anymore for access it.



BakaKnight commented on Nintendo Of Europe's Satoru Shibata Delivers A...:

I can confirm Shibata was at the Games Week in Milan ^o^
And he is not kidding about liking to walk around such events, for be the president of NoE, and not some advertisement guy, he was impressively easy to approch and very open to deal with crazy Nintendo's fans like me. He let me take a couple of pics with him and he even complimented me for my 3DS of TLoZ and my bag filled with fresh-purchased Wii and 3DS games XD



BakaKnight commented on UK Retailer GAME Is Selling Captain Toad: Trea...:

@Platypus101 I agree stores shouldn't break the release date, BUT in Italy such date got even postponed a week later cause most stores found hard to manage the stock of a new game the 2nd of the new year, a problem that I didn't hear for the rest of Europe.
That's why I wonder if there is some laziness around here >.>;



BakaKnight commented on Matters Of Import: Collectible Badge Centre Br...:

Of all the possible freemium experience they could do... games with units to purchases, experience to buy in shops... instead they went to ask money for something totally extra, to decorate the home menu, that only those really willing for it are gonna pay -o-

Thanks Nintendo ^o^ (No sarcasm, cash grabs are "needed" sadly nowaday, but I'm glad Nintendo is still avoiding all the easy game-ruining possibilities).



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
