Balaclavab commented on Masahiro Sakurai Confirms Super Smash Bros. Ch...:

I remember on Brawl there was a tactic in which, after using a smash attack to send an opponent off to the side or bottom of the screen, you could then go and jump off yourself, and grab hold of the ledge, meaning the opponent you sent flying had less chance of getting back on the stage, as they couldn't grab the ledge.
I guess this means that's no longer a guaranteed method to prevent an opponent from grabbing a ledge, but, as far as I can remember, I only successfully pulled it off once anyway.

Original is my 3rd favourite Zelda Game.
I don't have a Wii U, and I have no idea if I'll get one, but if I did, I would get this.
But streamlining the triforce collection......is that really necessary? I didn't mind how much effort I had to put in to piece it together in the original.

Balaclavab commented on Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Dual Destinies ...:

The first Ace Attorney is my No.1 favourite game of all time.
I've played all of them except Gyakuten Kenji 2 (Miles Edgeworth: Ace Attorney Investigations 2), although I ordered it off play asia the other day, so hopefully it will arrive soon :D
I don't speak Japanese, but my brother got me a Japanese dictionary last Christmas just so I could play GK2

I hope that 2014 release date spirals into a late 2015/early 2016 one, so that they have time to include LOTS of cool, new features, and it's not a watered-rehash like I find most of the first party Nintendo games are turning out to be these days......

Balaclavab commented on Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee New 'N' Tasty! Coming ...:

Abe's Oddysee was the second of third game I ever played (after Little Big Adventure 2 and either after or before Sonic the hedgehog 2)
And I love it.
I already own it on a CD and on Steam, but i'm kind of tempted to buy it again :)

Balaclavab commented on Animal Crossing: New Leaf Will Need Over 6000 ...:

I'm getting a 16 GB SDHC Card so I can download MH3U, might get this as well....but I doubt I will ever download games on to the 3DS unless they are download only, getting the physical cartridge tends to be cheaper, often quite significantly so, which I think is good.
It's great than Nintendo are embracing digital downloads, but still price them higher than you can buy in stores or other retailers.

They never Nintendo games to these attacks, do they? :)
I think parents need to be more attentive as to what their children play and watch, and make a decision based on what they know of their child, and what they know of the game. When I was 15, my mum let me buy Resident Evil 4 for the Wii. We used to only have one T.V. in our house, so my mum and younger brother (who was 13 at the time, and got a little creeped out by it) would watch me play it. After a while, my mum stopped letting my brother from watching me play it, and admitted that if she had known what the game was going to be like, she would not have let me buy it.
Which I think is only fair.

Balaclavab commented on The Monster Hunter Tri Servers Will be Shutdow...:

I've been waiting for this to happen, I knew it was only a matter of time :(
I only reahced HR 44, and finished the offline story, after about 170 hours play time, but me and a friend had just started getting back into it a week ago, I was going to try and get to HR 50 and fight Alateron....but I guess it was never meant to be :( MHTri, your online capabilities rivaled and sometimes trumped those of Xbox 360 and PS3 titles, and you will be sorely missed.

Balaclavab commented on Tales Of Symphonia Is The Most "Successful" Se...:

Well, i've only played three of the games, Tales Of Vesperia being my favourite,
then Tales of the Abyss,
then Tales of Symphonia....
but it's a littl unfair as ToV is the 10th game in the series, Abyss the 8th, and symphonia the 5th, so the games kind of got worse as I was going backwards.

Balaclavab commented on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate Makes Its Debut in U...:

I am thinking of getting this for the 3DS but......
I've already spent 170 hours (which Is a lot for me to spend on a game) on Tri on the Wii, and the 3DS version doesn't have online multiplayer (I don't have a Wii U nor will I be getting one), and the reason I loved Tri so much was it's online multiplayer, it was perhaps the only Wii game I could play and feel part of a community with.

Balaclavab commented on Talking Point: Time for Wii U to Treat Us Like...:

Nintendo has so many parental controls to cover all options, so there is no need to further set up a compulsory limitation for those who choose not to put them in place. Its just going too far.
If a parent didn't want their child to download or purchase an 18 rated game, I believe it is within their power to stop them, they don't need another safety net in place which also affects those above the age limit.

Balaclavab commented on Feature: Looking Back at Six Years of Wii:

I think Nintendo have the worst hardware, but the best games on Nintendo consoles are much better than the best games on other consoles.
Xenoblade Chronicles, SSBB, Monster Hunter Tri and No More Heroes compete for my favourite spot. Monster Hunter Tri's online multiplayer is better than most games online multiplayer modes.
And No More Heroes (while now out on PS3) was such an original, crazy game that could not have started life on any other console.
It may not give me the same gaming sense as I have when playing the Gamecube, but I love the Wii. And i ould argue that xbox and ps3 have just aan
