Bassman_Q commented on Video: Watch These Teenagers As They're Expose...:

Heh, at least the girl in the beanie got close to the top of the flagpole, something I probably wouldn't have been able to do haha. She seemed like the coolest of the girls in the video; the rest were kinda (unsurprisingly) annoying.



Bassman_Q commented on Masahiro Sakurai Provides Another Look at Supe...:

Am I the only one who's bugged by tha fact that the different modes you click on are on the TOP SCREEN rather than the TOUCH SCREEN? It's a minor nuisance, I know, but it just bugs me that it seems like you can't use the touch screen for selecting modes from the menu, when it seems so obvious that it should be the other way around, with the menu items on the touch screen and the menu preview image on the 3D top screen.



Bassman_Q commented on Thorium Wars: Attack of the Skyfighter Takes F...:

Awesome! I'll admit the trailer was pretty mediocre but considering I had so much fun with the first game, I may have to get this somewhere down the line...

@DefHalan - I thought the first game was pretty damn good at the time, but you have to understand that when it came out there was barely anything noteworthy on the DSi Shop. That being said, while it IS a good game (and one of my favorite DSiWare games), it can get frustratingly hard on certain levels and the graphics haven't really aged all that well. Considering this one costs less than the first and it seems like they tightened the gameplay a bit from the trailer, you might be better off just getting the sequel, but that's my own opinion.



Bassman_Q commented on Poll: Which is Your Favourite Super Smash Bros...:

I'm really excited to play as Lucina, even if she is sort of a clone of Marth. In the past Smash Bros. games, I simply refused to play as Marth (since his game, Shadow Dragon, was pretty horrible in comparison to other FE games), but now I can finally play a fast FE character with Lucina! :D



Bassman_Q commented on Feature: Our Weirdest And Most Wonderful Tomod...:

I have a question regarding this game: For all the celebrities and game characters that appear in the game, did you have to design them yourself via Mii Maker, or do they just randomly join your game? I've been considering getting the game, but if you have to design every single celeb character, I feel it would become a pain.



Bassman_Q commented on Video: This Child of Light Trailer Takes You T...:

@Dreamz - Aww crap, no North American love? Damn, I would've been happy with all those goodies coupled with a digital release on PC (I prefer digital anyway), but it's too bad it's only in those territories. I'll probably just wait for it to be released on Steam, then (I don't have a Wii U yet).



Bassman_Q commented on Video: This Child of Light Trailer Takes You T...:

@Dreamz - Hey, I noticed that, too! At the start of the video, The main character looks like a child of around 7 or 8 years old, and by the end of the trailer, she looks like a young adult of around 18 years old. It'll be very interesting to see how that comes into play in the game.

Also, artwork by Yoshitaka Amano!? That's freakin awesome! I may have to preorder a physical copy, then...



Bassman_Q commented on Modern Final Fantasy Tracks Confirmed For Thea...:

Awesome! I haven't played many of the "modern" Final Fantasy's aside from VIII and IX but it seems like the tracks I wanted from those two are on the list. Fingers crossed for a North American release for later this year!



Bassman_Q commented on Feature: 10 Nintendo DS Games We Want To See O...:

I think Radiant Historia and Okamiden should be on that list, too; they're both very high on my list of favorites on DS. I'm also surprised to see Shadow Dragon on here; it's an okay game as it is until you realize it's lacking all the charm, presentation, and personality that made all the other FE games so great. In short, Shadow Dragon is the worst FE entry to date imo.



Bassman_Q commented on Video: This Bravely Default Trailer Gives a Ha...:

That battle system kind of reminds me of the one in Radiant Historia, where you could swap your turn with an enemy's to attack more than once and chain combos together. Of course, I probably shouldn't get this game til I finish that game haha.



Bassman_Q commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014:

1. Layton v. Ace Attorney - Been hyped for this one ever since it was announced back in 2011. Even bought a used copy of Layton and the Diabolical Box to become familiar with the series.
2. Smash Bros. - Super-hyped to be able to play it on the go. Especially with Villager, Mega Man, and Rosalina!
3. Shovel Knight - Been hyped for this one since it's announcement early last year. The promo images and features here on NL were always great to see. I only hope it's no more than $10 on the eShop, cuz then I'd have to buy more prepaid funds.
4. Shantae 3 - Ill admit I wasn't too excited for this one when it was announced, but now that I've beaten the DsiWare sequel finally and have started the first GBC one, I'm pretty hyped for this now.

I'm downloading the Bravely Default demo as I type this, so I'll try it out and see if it's worth my money as well.



Bassman_Q commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life Readers' Award...:

Fire Emblem got my vote in all it's eligible categories, so I'm glad it at least made 2nd place in the 3DS categories. It's such an excellent game, the only reasons I haven't been playing it for the past few months is because of all the other games being released and the fact that I played it to death (90 hours on my 1st playthrough!) when it first came out. It's a game that definitely warrants a 2nd playthrough, so I might just have to start another file soon!



Bassman_Q commented on Round Table: Let's Talk About Nintendo in 2013...:

I'm surprised but also kinda glad that many of you on the NL staff haven't yet tried out ALBW. Zelda is among my top 3 favorite series of all time, and have played almost all of them to date, yet have not had the time (or money!) to try out ALBW. Hopefully that'll change in the coming months, after I work on my Backloggery and beat some eShop, 3DS, and Steam games.



Bassman_Q commented on Gunman Clive Sells Quarter Of A Million Copies...:

I love that game as well; it was short but had plenty of charm. Glad to see sales have been great for him. Looking at those screenshots makes me want to replay the game again! :D Can't wait to see what else he has up his sleeves to create.



Bassman_Q commented on CoroCoro Magazine Reveals Pokémon X & Y Start...:

Well, first-form-wise, Chespin's was my favorite and Froakie's was my least, and with these second forms, Froakie's is my favorite and Chespin's is my least favorite. :/ I'm still gonna choose Chespin, but I may never let him evolve. Still, I have my fingers crossed since some of the last few gens' 2nd evolutions of the starters were pretty bad, yet the last form ended up pretty baddonkey. Take Piplup, for example. His first form was effin' adorable, yet his second was damn ugly, and his third made him an absolute baddonkey penguin. XD



Bassman_Q commented on Video: There's A Fan-Made Final Fantasy VI Mov...:

@SkywardLink98 - I didn't say I didn't like it, just that really there is nothing anyone could do to do this game justice. Well, aside from Squeenix (finally) releasing a remake of the game on 3DS a la FFIII and IV on DS. That being said, the trailer was alright. I applaud these fans for at least trying, but like many have already stated the actors/actresses don't LOOK like their respective characters, which is a major turnoff for a movie version of such a great game.



Bassman_Q commented on Three Wii Classics Get A Price Reduction in No...:

Awesome! I guess it's about time I picked up SMG2, then! Everyone's been saying how it's better than SMG1, but I just couldn't get myself to pay $50 for it. Now that it's on sale, I suppose I don't have any more excuses to NOT buy it. XD



Bassman_Q commented on Peter Molyneux Reveals His Favourite Zelda Tit...:

Completely agree that Twilight Princess was a great game and one of my favorites of the Zelda series, though my biggest gripe with it was the slow and dull wolf sections. Other than that, I feel like it was the most epic Zelda entry yet.

As for my favorite, I would have to side with Wind Waker, as that was the game that brought me into Zelda. Twilight Princess ties 3rd on my list of favorite Zelda games along with Link's Awakening.



Bassman_Q commented on Review: Jet Force Gemini (Nintendo 64):

I remember playing this game with my brother many years ago when we were both in elementary school; good times testing out different weapons on the Tribals. :D Definitely one of my favorite N64 games, probably 3rd after Ocarina of Time and Banjo-Tooie, and would easily give a 9/10 to it. That being said, the score of 7 seems a bit harsh, as it wasn't THAT hard of a game. It was hard, sure, but not old-school-NES hard. As for the controls, I do recall there being an option to move about even when aiming; I think you used the C Buttons to move while aiming with R. Now that I think about it, the aiming system was very lefty-oriented, as you aimed and fired with the left hand and moved with the right hand. I think it was because of THIS game's controls that I had a hard time with modern "dual-stick" FPS controls. :D



Bassman_Q commented on Interview: Zelda Producer Eiji Aonuma Talks DL...:

I dunno about everyone else, but I REALLY hope they make a new, 3D Zelda game on the 3DS. I'm not all that excited for ALBW honestly, probably because I started playing Zelda in 3D before 2D, and OoT3D was just a remake of a game I have already played almost 3 times now.
