C-Olimar commented on Review: Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash (3DS):

I sense the developers themselves weren't entirely keen on the change in direction for our robot friend. But platformers sell, and the series deserved one last throw of the dice. I'm buying this, and I hope plenty of others do too.



C-Olimar commented on Miiverse Gets a Major Web Redesign, and Introd...:

Nice idea to have ads on the web version - if there's revenue to be made why not? As long as they don't include ads in the console versions I'm OK with this.

I only use adblock on annoying websites, so I'll unblock Miiverse. (I don't block on Nintendo Life btw )



C-Olimar commented on Video: Terraria Shines on Wii U and 3DS:

@rjejr The Wii and DS also connected in certain games, such as Ultimate Band, Jam With the Band and I believe a Final Fantasy game that was on both systems.

I for one want to see more games implement the 3DS as a Wii U controller. Instead of a specific Smash Controller app, why not a universal one used for compatible games, such as Mario Kart.



C-Olimar commented on Feature: Looking at the Building Blocks of LEG...:

@rjejr About the K'Nex deal, I would normally think this would indeed prevent a Nintendo tie in, but Doctor Who building sets are licensed to Character Building. I'm not sure about the other franchises represented in the game, but in this instance the LEGO Dimensions set doesn't seem to have affected pre-existing deals.



C-Olimar commented on Preview: Fabulous Fashion and Questionable Gam...:

@rjejr Well I've never really liked Warriors games in general so I was never really gonna like it. And to be fair there is a lot of fun to be had in smashing your way through Zelda locations as your favourite characters (and Agitha).
For fans of the genre I'm sure it's great (definitely seems to be the best Warriors game to me) but I prefer more complex action games like Bayonetta



C-Olimar commented on Rumour: Retailer-Exclusive amiibo Look Set for...:

@rdrunner1178 My comment was harsh to be fair I just find the moaning gets boring after a while. I'm in the UK, and our amiibo situation is pretty great at the moment, with most figures available online right now and many in stores. Still waiting on Greninja and Lucario restocks though...



C-Olimar commented on Preview: Fabulous Fashion and Questionable Gam...:

I'm happy to hear there's download play but limiting the game to one OR three players is bloody annoying. The one thing that would sell me on this game is the ability to play through it with my brother.
I've never passed on a Zelda before (I even bought the poor Hyrule Warriors) but this just isn't doing it for me.



C-Olimar commented on New Nintendo Controller Patent Features Rotati...:

That is a very good idea and I'm surprised it hasn't been done before. Hopefully you can click them in as well and they become the new ZL/ZR buttons. Add analogue back to your triggers Nintendo and you finally have a decent controller!



C-Olimar commented on Nintendo Download: 10th September (Europe):

I found Trine 2 pretty dull when I first tried to play it, but I'll give Trine Enchanted a go and see if I can get into the series.
I suppose it's funally time to pick up Airace on 3DS as well



C-Olimar commented on Video: See Mario Kart 8's Mute City in a Whole...:

@Mida The problem with Starfox is outputting complex action on two different screens at once - with MK8 the gamepad simply displayed a map/horn or mirrored the main screen. A large chunk of the Wii U's processing power is used on the two distinct displays.



C-Olimar commented on Preview: Getting Inside The Curiously Undemand...:

I still can't shake the feeling that this is little more than a slapdash attempt at selling amiibo. It comes across as something that should have been a feature in a future full Animal Crossing title. But I guess we're not getting another one ot those 'til NX



C-Olimar commented on Hands On: Devil's Third - Sampling Online Chao...:

Nice to hear it's looking promising. I really hope the micro transactions aren't too bad.
At this point I'm just buying the game to have it. It's such an interesting curio. If I end up having fun with it, then that's a plus



C-Olimar commented on It All Gets Crazy in This Devil's Third Launch...:

I'm surprised at how many people commenting are buying the game. Perhaps if sales are decent enough we'll get the support of a patch or two to help solve some of the issues the game currently possesses?
This kind of game really suits DLC as well, so I hope that isn't off the table.
