Bassman_Q commented on Feature: Explaining Humble Bundle and What it ...:

Does anyone know if the download codes expire? I'm tempted to donate $10 for the Wii U titles (I already have all the 3DS titles on offer), though I don't have a Wii U yet and probably won't get one for at least another few months.



Bassman_Q commented on Developer Pleased with Sales of Retro City Ram...:

I just bought the 3DS version last night at half price, and it's great! I have the original WiiWare version but it feels so much more natural on the handheld; also it was much too difficult to see what was going on in the Wii version.



Bassman_Q commented on The New 3DS Fire Emblem Will Force You To Pick...:

I KNEW it! As soon as they announced that the game would rely heavily on decisions made by the player, I KNEW it had something to do with picking a side or faction to be on. I've been hoping for a Fire Emblem story to have a decision like this for a number of years, and now it's here!

My mom used to watch this Japanese drama show based in the Samurai/Shogun era where the main character had to choose between supporting his current boss or switching sides to help his boss's brother; I thought it was quite an interesting story concept and have been waiting for a game to utilize such a story mechanic. That was at least 5 years ago, and now I am SUPER-HYPED for this game. It might be even better than Awakening if done right. :D



Bassman_Q commented on Watch: Catch Up With the North American, Europ...:

SOOOO hyped for the new Fire Emblem game, though given the fact that the trailer was un-translated, we probably won't see it here in the U.s. til either late this year or early next year.

I must say, that Majora's Mask New Nintendo 3DS bundle sounds mighty tempting atm, though I only want the new system solely for Xenoblade.



Bassman_Q commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2015:

Most excited for smileBasic tbh... I've always been interested in creating small games (especially after WarioWare DIY took over my life back in 2010), plus it seems like an excellent way for budding programmers such as myself to create some cool games.

After that I'm most excited for MM3D, mainly because I never finished the original and am confident that they improved the overall 3-day system without making it frustrating for the player.



Bassman_Q commented on Poll: Which is the Best Pokémon Game?:

Honestly, for me it's hard to decide between HeartGold and Y... I only have 3 Pokemon games to date (with my first being Pearl; I didn't get into Pokemon until early high school haha) but those two were the best imo. I voted for HeartGold, mainly because while I never beat the game, it was a lot more fast-paced than Pearl and the Pokewalker addition made it so I could train individual Pokemon without bringing my DS to school. As much as I enjoyed Y with its excellent graphics and battle scenes, I felt like HeartGold overall had more heart and character poured into the game.



Bassman_Q commented on Review: Fairune (3DS eShop):

I've been waiting for a review ever since it came out and I'm glad to see its a pretty good game! I was worried about buying it since CIRCLE titles have been pretty hit or miss, but now it looks like I just have to play it!



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!
