"...if you prefer, beat the snot out of us. This writer has a strong suspicion that many may do the latter."

Awwww, you guys are too hard on yourselves, I'm going to make Tom into an OP sword fighter. (Probably with vampire garb, just because....)

Benjelo commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

The 3ds doesn't seem so underpowered that it couldn't operate 5 different AI instead of 4... I could understand that the ice climbers might not have been able to run at the 60 fps standard, but surely they could've run at 20 or 30. Even if they were to have the same fps as some assist trophies, I'm sure people would be fine with it. I don't know too much about it though so I could be wrong.

I was really hoping duck hunt dog did not get in, he just didn't seem like a smash character, but I'm sure that Sakurai managed to make him decent. Also, seeing that Lucina is not shown in any of the roster pics, she must be a harder character to unlock

Everyone says the demo will be coming to NA in two to three days. I hope they're right but honestly, seeing how Nintendo said a while back "SSB4 coming to 3ds summer 2014" I have my doubts with how quickly they will release this to NA.

Benjelo commented on Reaction: Picking Apart The New Nintendo 3DS A...:

I really can't afford to upgrade this year, but I think they said it was coming out in 2015 anyway. If it comes out in holiday season next year it is a possibility for me. The new "c" circle pad looks pretty interesting but I'm not into monster hunter, I guess it could be useful in smash. That improved 3d looks pretty tempting also. I think they should have waited a few more years and just released it as the new handheld, of course with that time they could add a lot more features. Either way Nintendo did a good job with this upgrade, I think it just came out at the wrong time.

I love the character and the fighting style but I absolutly hate that voice. I wish they would have a japanese voice over instead and I hope they keep the Japanese voiceover for Marth. The English one for Ike was actually pretty good, but this one for Shulk is kind of annoying.
btw: Does anyone else think that he looks like he will be another really op character?

Benjelo commented on Gallery: A Closer Look At 13 amiibo Toys:

I was thinking of getting marth and kirby but marth's quality is pretty bad compared to the others and kirby has a crack in his eye lol ( I'm sure they will fix that eventually). I'm more concerned on what they will do for me in game. I don't want to buy them if they are just figurines.

I never enjoyed MH games but if other people enjoy them and Nintendo is doing better financially because of it I guess I shouldn't be complaining. I recently downloaded MH3U to see if I enjoyed it anymore than 2 or 1, and honestly it's just not the game for me.

Benjelo commented on Feature: Breaking Down What Nintendo's QOL Pla...:

This article cleared some concepts and blurred some others. When I look at the technological advancements being made all the time, it is hard to keep up. Even looking individually at Nintendo, let's see... at home consoles we started with NEs, SNES, N64, NGC, wii, wii u. The advancements with those consoles were color, larger storage 3demensional fields(ex. Mario 64), then wi-fi, motion control, then HD. Those were a lot of advancements! But the handhelds expand the advancements even more! there was handheld color, and handheld 3demensional playing fields, touch screens, cameras, non glasses 3d, handheld wi-fi. With all this in mind it is not surprising that nintendo plans to expand even further. Especially recently I have been amazed with certain features. "Non glasses 3d?" "Motion controls?" I was amazed when I first experienced these things. I'm not sure what this "non-wearable technology" will be, but I'm sure it'll be great.

Ahhhh, that is much more clear now thank you. I saw many other attack on titan openings mixed with other things but they had a plot based on AOT, that id why this opening confused me. The really good/funny ones I've seen are:

Benjelo commented on Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind:

From this video, it seems that the titans are underpowered in comparison with the anime. I hope it comes to north america but I would hate it if it were dubbed. I can only watch this in subbed because english voice overs just aren't the same.

Benjelo commented on Super Smash Bros. (Tentative Title):

I want to get this game but not sure whether to get it on wii u or on 3ds. I need more funds... Which one do you guys want to get? considering we are on the 3ds versions site i'm guessing most of you are going to say 3ds.

Hmmm... there seems to be a lot of conflict over this small update. Just think of it this way: Will this REALLY affect my life in any way? For me not at all. Now I need to press one more button for reporting spoilers... oh dear.

@aaronsullivan
That was a very interesting analogy... Although I feel like everyone is saying You're going to fall off the cliff!!! but in reality you are 3 miles from the nearest lethal fall.
To put that more clearly I think everyone is saying false bad news about nintendo. Think of all the doom ridden news that never affected anything. It's good to hear the reassuring voice saying "you're no where near a cliff, keep walking."

Benjelo commented on Soapbox: Even With The Arrival Of PS4 And Xbox...:

I just finished reading every comment and my eyes are about to fall out.
With that being said, I would like to add my own insight to this subject matter.

I noticed that some people believe this is an inappropriate time to compare these consoles. The Wii U has been out for about a year now and the PS4 only came out recently. Yes that is true, however, the Wii U was released first so developers had less time to create the Wii U than the makers of PS4 did. Now that I mention it, Nintendo has been the first in many things. They created the first hand-held color game, the Gameboy Color; maybe even the first hand-held console being Gameboy? Obviously also first 3D console 3ds and I think wii was first motion control Console... Well you get the idea. Nintendo is able to provide these new features much more quickly than any other company and I think that they deserve some applause for that clap clap. Not only do they provide these consoles quicker but I think they are better in general. Perhaps I am wrong on this, being it is just my opinion, but I got the xbox 360 and the wii and the playstation 2. I know they are not in the same time release area... thing.... but just by comparing these I feel like when I first opened the Wii and played for the first time there was that spark of- perhaps excitement is the best word. With the other consoles that spark was not really there, or at least it wasn't that strong. I think Nintendo is superior in the matter that they really attract consumers of games with the first time they play. This opinion may or may not be due to my history of buying Nintendo games for a long time but Microsoft and sony have not really been around as long as Nintendo.

Benjelo commented on Nintendo of America Announces StreetPass Weeke...:

I am in a fairly populated location so if I just take a car ride then sometimes I get streetpass tags. I'm glad they have this, I will be sure to go to a barnes and nobles or something to get some regions I'm missing. I actually have like half of Canada from a trip I recently took there but I only have the majority of New England (where I live) so I still have a lot to go :P

Benjelo commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

@Melkaticox
Why would they cancel the 3ds if it is going to have more sales then the Wii u?
Honestly I think it will depend on what people are looking for. I have both Wii u and 3ds XL and I don't really have enough money to by both. I am leaning towards the Wii u version because the graphics are better (I'm slightly picky about that) and the controls will prob be same as last time. Then again I love playing online mode and I can't imagine how great the 3ds online mode will be (if they have it). The last thing is that the Wii u version will probably cost more money. 3D land for 3ds was 40$ and 3D world for Wii U was 60$ so I'm expecting a similar difference in price. It will be a tough decision... Hopefully I can get enough money by then for both.

Benjelo commented on Nintendo 3DS Guide: Louvre Is Region-Free:

How this affects you really depends on if you are in favor of borders or not. I suppose there are always...exceptions... to the rules, however I would rather have absolutely no borders (which I am slightly against) than to have mostly no borders but some exceptions. Being in between usually is not the best decision. There is, of course... the possibility that this is one of those times where it is the best decision... oh inception you!

I really hope I end up with enough money for this christmas to buy a wii u and get this game. I have the 3ds xl and mario 3d land was definitely one of the best game I've played in my life. I would be extremely thankful if I acquire the funds for this. While I wait another month I'm relying on nintendo and you guys commenting to keep me updated!

I just couldn't help but laugh when I saw them knitting in the commercial. My japanese is minimal (Only know some from anime) but this commercial really just says "smile" in my mind. I don't really mind the "cheesiness" or whatever.

Benjelo commented on Marth Confirmed as the Latest Challenger in Su...:

Peach can't resist that cape lol. Marth is my most used character and I'm glad Nintendo was nice enough to bring him to super smash bros. I'm also a fan of fire emblem, so I hope they have chrome or maybe even lucina if they want a girl character. I was really looking forward to the SSB 4 on 3ds but after seeing the graphics here... hmmmm... wii u is looking pretty cool. I hope I can get one for holidays if price drops again. Then again, when I first saw mario 3d and I was thinking the same thing but the graphics ended up looking okay on the actual screen when I decided to buy it. I'll give you a shot 3ds!

I do like sonic as a S.S.B. character. I enjoyed playing him in brawl. The only thing I don't like is that his attacks are not all that diverse. All you do the whole game is get into that spin ball thing the whole game (at least for me).

Benjelo commented on Feature: A Week of Super Smash Bros. Wii U and...:

I can not help but to read every comment and it is wasting so much of my time...
But in any case, It was a hard pick, I enjoy all these characters but the one with the plane and the one with peach/luigi where the best in my opinion. I noticed there was a small quarrel over the character revelation, The creators are revealing the characters fittingly. actually I think they might be going a bit to fast. The game comes out next summer! Let's leave the entertaining surprises for that time. Am I correct in saying this? What do YOU think?

Benjelo commented on Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell Claims Nintendo "...:

I personally enjoy Nintendo and it's gaming style, I mean this site is called Nintendolife isn't it? In order to be here we all must have some positive feelings toward nintendo, right? In order for that to happen we all have to enjoy the games and gaming consoles of nintendo to some extent. With that said, how is it that there are some who question our anger at these comments against the handheld systems? I have been a fan of Handhelds all the way back to the GameBoy Color, while in comparison to cells and tablets I have never really appreciated them that much as far as gaming goes. I mean, i enjoyed occasionally playing those "quick hits"(like Temple Run, Angry Birds) but I'd only play them for a week and be done with them, also I would only play up to 10 min at a time. With Nintendo's handheld I can play games for months and still enjoy them and 1 or 2 hours at a time! In all honesty phones/tablets and gaming handhelds should not be compared.

After all I don't think this guy has any right to use irrelevant in gaming. Not because he is the creator of the atari from way back when so much, but because he is not as involved with gaming as he used to. Perhaps he still picks up a game every now and then, I wouldn't know. But I have trust in the people running Nintendo that they are doing the best thing for the customers, the company, for everyone.

Benjelo commented on Say Hello To The Nintendo 2DS - A 3DS without 3D:

Hmmm... I have only two conclusion for why nintendo would ever do such a
thing as this...

So basically the first one is:
they made it terrible on purpose. It needs to be really bad for their plan to work. At the end of a certain time period, lets say 6 months, they compare the sales to that of the 3ds at it's 6 month-after-release time. Now if the 2ds is selling at a close enough rate to the 3ds they will start making all their gaming consoles terrible because they are getting the same sales. however if the 2ds is failing tragically then they know to keep the quality of their gaming consoles high. In other words it's a test. Also the reason they had to make it flat was because it has a memory storage unit at the middle which is there because the camera on the front is constantly watching you recording what you do as part of the test. once the 3ds has wireless connection it sends all the information to a secret observation center owned by nintendo.

reason number 2 is quite simple:
Nintendo is running low on new ideas. The company feels they are not capable of improving their gaming experience much more so what they do is simple, send out a really terrible game console so people will be like "NO! nintendo is losing it's edge!" but secretly they've been designing a new console that is actually an improvement. this way people will be more content with the real new counsel because in contrast to the 3ds it is far better.

Of course, both of these are completely logical explanations but it's hard to say which one it is... What do you think?
