Bulbousaur commented on New Pokkén Tournament Controller and Gameplay...:

Ugh, I hate using regular controllers for fighting games (apart from Smash, of course). Triggers just seem too detached from the rest of the buttons, give me a regular arcade stick layout for this game any day of the week.

Bulbousaur commented on Reminder: The Nintendo Network Premium Promoti...:

I'll end up getting two codes from this, and one of them was almost completely from the free version of Monster Hunter from the Mario Kart promotion. Haven't bought much really, but I'm sitting at 908 total now so a £10 game should get me up to another just in time.

Bulbousaur commented on Learn With Pokémon: Typing Adventure Now Cost...:

Got this for £9 a few months ago, and its worth it just for the keyboard. The only downside is when you connect it to a computer, tablet or whatever else you want, it picks it up as the American layout, so trying to get the pound (£) symbol will result in the dollar ($) symbol. But still complete worth it at £10 just for the keyboard, the game is just a bonus :)

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Reveals 11 amiibo Super Smash Bros. F...:

@Martinice I don't think you would get the Spinner in Hyrule Warriors like the regular Link amiibo does, but I'm guessing they'll be some sort of exclusive in Hyrule Warriors that hasn't been announced for him. Same with the Zelda and Sheik amiibos (and Ganondorf when its eventually out). Can't say about Mario Kart 8, but I doubt it since not all the characters in wave one got Mii costumes.

Bulbousaur commented on Pikmin Short Movies Available to Buy Now on Wi...:

As much as the Pikmin 3 movies are cool, I don't see many people paying £4.49 each for them. Most people wouldn't even pay £5 for a full move on DVD these days. Not saying Nintendo doesn't have the right or any reason not to charge money for them, but they are all going to be up on the Internet for free on YouTube (or some other not-so-legal places) very quickly.

Bulbousaur commented on The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask Confirmed F...:

@minotaurgamer Since when is 3.36 million sales a failure? Especially for a game at the end of a system's life. It didn't have Ocarina of Time sales, but for the circumstances it did very well. Majora's mask has also gained a huge cult following in recent years. And on one of the most popular systems of this generation, if you don't think this game will be a hit you're the one that's wrong.

Bulbousaur commented on Rumour: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Dat...:

@Mommar Why would you want to use the D-Pad? That would make it impossible to do tilt moves or have different walking speeds. Plus the D-Pad is in a very awkward spot on the console. The Circle Pad is far form perfect, but the D-Pad would be even worse. Get some circle pad covers if it bothers you that much.

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.

Bulbousaur commented on Play & Win: Join the UK Mario Kart 8 Tournamen...:

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.
