Bulbousaur commented on Weirdness: Sony Fan Creates Petition In Hope O...:

"Not only would it be benefical for both fans and Nintendo, but probably also REQUIRED by US anititrust law, since Nintendo has a monopoly on games like Smash Bros. by virtue of having no competing title."

The Vita has significantly more fighting games than the 3DS . The Vita even has Playstation All Stars, which is in the same sub-genre of mascot fighters. There is nothing even close yo a monopoly in play here.

Bulbousaur commented on Capcom Won't Greenlight Sequels If A Game Does...:

@Captain_Gonru But before DmC, the Devil May Cry series did sell well. Devil May Cry 4 sold about 3 million units. The reason why DmC didn't sell well was because the reboot changed so much about the original story and characters that it polarized many fans. Devil May Cry certainly isn't a Mario or Call of Duty-level franchise, but a large enough fan-base does exist to warrant a sequel to the original series in my opinion.

Besides, Platinum's games are almost all comprised of over-the-top action games. With your logic, they should only be making Bayonetta 2 and nothing else.

They should at least consider selling or leasing out IPs which don't meet the nonsense 2 million sales criteria, there are plenty of developers which could do great things with them. How does a brand new Kamiya-directed Devil May Cry developed by Platinum sound? One can only dream though...

Bulbousaur commented on This Fan-Made NES 3DS XL Offers a Cool Alterna...:

I prefer the fan version, I like my hardware to be designed simply and discreetly. Not over the top enough to make strangers stare, but for like-minded fans to figure out what it is and appreciate it. The official one just looks cluttered and unnecessary to me. Same goes for the Smash Bros. XL. I would much rather it just had a Samsh Ball rather than the entire cast and logo, I probably would had bought it then.

Bulbousaur commented on Impending Japanese Launch Of Super Smash Bros....:

I may be wrong, but I have a feeling that more characters may be coming, just not at the moment. There might still be characters that are going to be announced between the gap of the 3DS and Wii U versions to keep the hype rolling, and the new characters could be put in as a patch or free DLC for the 3DS version when the Wii U version comes out. That is what I suspect (and hope) happens.

Bulbousaur commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

WHAT?!? A New 3DS with better CPU, a second circle pad and more shoulder buttons?!? This is fantastic! I guess my dud XL which I had to return was a blessing in disguise. But this does throw a wrench in my plans to get a XL for a bigger screen for Smash, so I guess I'll have to play it on a small screen until 2015, but a port of Xenoblade will be completely worth it.

Bulbousaur commented on Renegade Kid Announces Metroidvania Game Xeodr...:

To be honest, I think Renegade Kid has no idea how to organise their projects. All they seem to these days is announce a game, don't talk about it for months on end, and then announce a new game or cancel an older one. Its good that they have so many ideas, but they are worthless if they can't be implemented into finished products. If you have a presumably playable build of Treasurenauts (original release date was for Q1 of 2014), you can't just abandon the project in favour of game which hasn't even started development. And Mutant Mudds 2 was put on hold for Treasurenauts, and MM2 which was announced back in January 2013. Not to mention Moon Chronicles and the numerous titles which haven't even been released in Europe yet. Apparently the Razor scooter game is dead now according to the Go Nintendo article. Not even going to talk about Cult County.

All of these titles are all over the place, its just ridiculous. Renegade Kid is a indie developer, they simply cannot handle all of these projects. If you can't get a game out when your job is game development, you're not going to make any money and go out of business, its that simple.

Got 202, putting me technically at 19th, drawing with at least two other people, but there wasn't enough room on the leaderboard for me. Had a pretty crummy first 8 races, but ended up getting in the top three for all of them in my second half. Good luck to everyone else, looks like there's a lot less room jumping this time around!

Bulbousaur commented on Play & Win: UK Mario Kart 8 Tournament - Live!:

165 after my set of 12. Currently tied for first, with Marioracer and Stacy1199, but I don't think that's going to be good enough to keep first with all the others that still have to play. Good luck to everyone else!

Bulbousaur commented on NES30 GamePad Brings Old School Control To iOS...:

I heard about this a few days ago and thought it was interesting, but now I know it works as a Wii controller I'll probably end up buying it. I guess it works as a sideways WiiMote, but does it work with motion controls since the majority of Wii platformers (particularly NSMBWii and DKCR) basically require them? My honest guess is that it only works with Virtual Console games.

Bulbousaur commented on Rayman Trophy Revealed For Super Smash Bros. O...:

I think this is just announcing third-party characters being in the game not just as playable, but as lesser roles as well like collectables and even assist trophies. Why would Sakurai ruin the surprise so close to the reveal?

While I do think Rayman would make a good moveset and be fun to play as if he were in the game, I don't think he is really eligible to be playable. Other than the plans for Legends to be a Wii U exclusive (which fell through), Rayman has always been a series released on just about everything possible. I would even argue that he would fit better in Playstation All Stars than Smash. Maybe he was planned to be playable before Legends was delayed, so that's why he has a trophy, and possibly an assist trophy.

But could be completely wrong, guess we'll find out the newcomer in just under 6 hours!

Bulbousaur commented on Play: It's The Second Nintendo Life Community ...:

Dang, missed out being in the top 10 by only 4 points! If only I got a place higher in a couple of races... I haven't played in just under a week so I was a little bit rusty. Oh well, it was a lot of fun and I can't wait for the next one!

@randomous Yeah, I think I did see you a few times along with Tank_OG. Congrats on winning! I think I would of done slighty better if @Squashy didn't show up, I always focus too much on beating him that my overall racing suffers, just nerves I guess since I know him in real life.

Bulbousaur commented on Mighty No. 9 Has Another Crowdfunding Campaign...:

Why does Comcept need $100,000 for voice acting? Presumingly they already have recording equipment and voice actors lined up for the TV show, why can't they just get the actors to say a few extra lines in the studio and rent out the studio for a few extra days? There is no way they need anything close to $100,000 for that.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Open To Minecraft on Wii U and 3DS, a...:

If Minecraft does come up Wii U, hopefully it'll be the PS4/Xbone version and not the disappointing PS3/360 version with the tiny world size, but I'm not optimistic. As for a 3DS version, yeah I doubt that'll ever happen with the 3DS's power, and even if they a build specially for it, it'll be similar to the stripped-down Pocket version.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Download: 5th June (Europe):

Huh, I thought the Wii U version of How to Survive was cancelled since the other versions came out months ago and we've heard nothing about the Wii U version for ages. I don't even remember seeing the Wii U logo on the official website last time I was there. Might get it then depending on NL's review.

Bulbousaur commented on Pullblox World Puzzling Its Way to Europe on 1...:

Cool I guess, but I don't see it translating very well to the Wii U since puzzle games, especially Pullblox, are very suited for handhelds. I just don't see that many people buying this, since despite for larger puzzle sizes this is just the same game with a HD coat of paint, which is avaliable on a much more popular system. Prove me wrong Nintendo!

I'm going to hold off judgement until we hear from the content creators and their viewpoints, since it's them that this really affects, not us. This could be anything from Nintendo taking 5% to 90% of the ad revenue, we just don't know any of the details of this policy yet.

That woman has joined the ranks of Nemesis from Resident Evil 3, Pyramid Head from Silent Hill 2 and the Necromorphs from Dead Space as one of the most terrifying video game monsters...

@kingston589 I highly doubt they would announce Wonder Red or any character as a trophy first before as a playable character. I think that several Wonderful 101 characters will act as a single Assist Trophy preforming some of the team attacks like Unite Fist, Unite Gun and Unite Sword.

Bulbousaur commented on Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire ...:

Sounds like its not a straight remake of Ruby and Sapphire, maybe they'll redesign the Hoenn region to not have so much surfing which will be greatly appreciated. Bit unusual that we basically know nothing at the moment, since main series Pokemon games have a big first reveal most of the time, guess we'll have to wait until E3. (Maybe they just threw this trailer together to try and draw attention away to the poor financial annoucements)

I'll be pre-ordering Omega Ruby as soon as the Amazon page for it comes up.
