Re: Review: Devil's Third (Wii U)

Bulbousaur

So the only real sort of OK aspect of the game is the multiplayer, which is coming to PC in a few months as a free to play game anyway? I'll pass on this and just wait to be disappointed for free.

Re: Pokémon Brawler Pokkén Tournament Coming To Wii U Early Next Year

Bulbousaur

To people who are saying this should be a NX launch title: we literally know nothing about the NX apart from its name and we'll find out more next year. No launch titles, no specs, nothing. The only reason we know of its existence is so people don't think Nintendo is abandoning dedicated consoles. All of these theories about the NX are extremely premature, and I see no reason why people are so obsessed by it.

Re: Super Smash Bros. Evo 2015 Champ ZeRo Is Joining Team SoloMid

Bulbousaur

@Rhydas ZeRo will advertise SoloMid's sponsors on his stream and wear a jacket advertising the sponsors during tournaments, similar to professional athletes. In return SoloMid will give ZeRo money, how much depends on the agreement they made in their contract. SoloMid will also most likely help ZeRo apply for more permanent Visa so he can stay in the US.

The reason why this may be seen as a big deal is because this is the first major sponsorship of a Smash 4 player, which may lead to Smash growing to gain a more high-profile place in the eSports community. Not to the levels of Starcraft or League of Legends, but maybe this will mean the Smash community will be taken more seriously among members of the fighting game community which do not see Smash as a "real" fighting game.

Re: Nintendo President Satoru Iwata Passes Away Aged 55

Bulbousaur

This a very, very sad day for the gaming industry, we have lost one of its greatest minds, and one of its greatest hearts. Despite the recent issues with Nintendo, Iwata only ever wanted what was best for gaming, and to entertain millions of people around the world, and he has achieved that over and over again.

Re: Reaction: There is a Positive Angle to Nintendo's Splatoon Global Testfire Issues

Bulbousaur

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.

Re: Nintendo Outlines Splatoon's Free Post-Launch Content

Bulbousaur

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.

Re: Nintendo Reveals 11 amiibo Super Smash Bros. Figures Hitting in Early 2015

Bulbousaur

@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.
