Bulbousaur commented on Reaction: There is a Positive Angle to Nintend...:

Last night was my only time with the demo, and despite the obvious issues in the first hour, the second hour has convinced me to buy the game, the overall game was much better than I had expected.
I will not be preordering though, if those connection issues happen so close to release there is a good chance they will happen again on launch. If the game launches with no issues on Friday, I'll be more than happy to go on Amazon/eShop and get it as soon as I can. But if it doesn't, I can wait for the issues to be sorted without feeling frustrated by owning a product that I can't fully enjoy.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo is Discontinuing the Basic 8GB Wii U ...:

How about a model with enough storage capacity to download more than 3 full priced games? With HDD storage so cheap these days, there's little excuse for Nintendo to use flash storage, especially since Sony and Microsoft have been doing so since 2005.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Outlines Splatoon's Free Post-Launch ...:

They should have delayed the game and released it with all the content at once. Every notable online shooter out there has private lobbies, why do we have to wait until July and August, when the hype of this game will inevitably die down, for something any good shooter should have at launch? Unfortunately, I think Spatoon will flop.

Bulbousaur commented on Nintendo Provides a Handy Quick Guide to Compl...:

@DarkLink95 Yeah, but the video only talks about using the original micro SD card that comes with the system, are there any extra steps I need to take? What about the 'have you used more than one micro SD card' option? What happens if I press that? This is really confusing and unclear to be honest...

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.
