C-Olimar commented on Fans Are Translating Dragon Quest VII On 3DS B...:

Ugh. Why can't Squeenix just release this? 6 was released as the DS was dying, hence the slow sales in the West, whereas 9 sold pretty well (despite Jedward's best efforts to destroy the game's UK sales). I'm sure there is enough of a market for 7 to be worth a punt.



C-Olimar commented on Eiji Aonuma Discusses Idea Origins for The Leg...:

Kind of thought Termina's name could have been derived from the other meaning of terminal - "forming or situated at the end or extremity of something." Seems to make sense, given the story of the game.
Interesting article.



C-Olimar commented on Iwata Doesn't Feel amiibo Has Shown Its Full P...:

I'm looking forward to card amiibo, but I'm anxious to hear the price. Nintendo's previous attempt at collectible cards (Kid Icarus Uprising) was terribly overpriced - £1.50 for 6! And these didn't even have NFC chips in them.



C-Olimar commented on New Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Eon T...:

I literally just got my eon ticket today -_-
To be fair though I haven't played OR in over a month so I could have got the eon ticket at any point during that time... I had like 15 streetpasses.

I'm glad Ninty are doing an online distribution for this, so no-one is left out, though starting with Streetpass was a good idea. Hopefully we see more Streetpass promotions in future - as long as Nintendo make whatever content that is distributed available to all gamers later on.



C-Olimar commented on Feature: A Celebration of HAL Laboratory - For...:

Excellent article :)
I know Sakurai is sick of sequels but... Kid Icarus 4 now!
I'm surprised at how good Box Boy looks. I was initially sceptical about Nintendo's desire to release smartphone-like games but if this is the general outcome (more this, less Pokemon Shuffle) then I'm all for it (as long as they don't impact the release of bigger and better games).



C-Olimar commented on Feature: Tales From the Front Line of amiibo C...:

I wish I had the money to buy every amiibo in a store. Then I could send them to deserving nintendo fans who miss out on their favourite characters, thanks to greedy scalpers, nonchalant retailers and nintendo's own ineptitude.
As a side note, I would flip if I missed out on an olimar amiibo.



C-Olimar commented on Rumour: Rayman Could be Planned as DLC in Supe...:

Why are you even reporting this obvious fake? -_- EDIT: Well maybe it's not that obvious. It does look pretty good, but the lack of Mobus' voice is suspicious.
I would've been less skeptical if the player in the video actually selected Rayman and we heard Xander Mobus' distinctive voice say Rayman.



C-Olimar commented on Review: Mega Man Zero 2 (Wii U eShop / Game Bo...:

This reminds me, I bought the first 4 Mega Man games and have thus far only completed the first. There's so many of them though :/
I'll probably buy the best game in each the Zero and X series and leave it at that.



C-Olimar commented on Renegade Kid Reveals a Snippet of Information ...:

Crazy how Mutant Mudds is their best seller by a large margin, though it has to be said there is a gulf in quality between that and RK's other games (plus the eShop was a wildly different market 3 years ago). I'm not surprised Bomb Monkey failed to sell at that price.
Hopefully Treasurenauts gets RK back on the path of releasing excellent games rather than simply good.
I'd also like to add that now is the perfect time for a European release of Moon Chronicles. With the new 3DS on the horizon, many early adopters will be keen to purchase games which use the console's additional buttons.



C-Olimar commented on Nintendo Picks Up Three Gongs at the D.I.C.E. ...:

Nice to see them actually win awards as opposed to the token nominations they tend to receive from institutions with no intention of taking their games seriously.
Bayonetta 2 and the lack of any family game nomination whatsoever are glaring oversights here, but it's nice to see Mario Kart 8 beat the "mature" racers.



C-Olimar commented on Xenoblade Chronicles 3D Dated for North Americ...:

Shulk amiibo reprint in time for this game's release, please.
Nintendo should reprint all amiibo until near enough every fan who wants a character can get that character.
Save these tiny manufacture quantities for variations only. That way nobody misses out on their favourite characters. (Why can't I have Pit and Captain Falcon?? :'( )



C-Olimar commented on Review: Frenchy Bird (Wii U eShop):

Nice to see a developer put some effort into a Flappy Bird clone, but I have to ask what the point is? Surely the time spent creating 3D models, music and art for this game would have been best served working on something more worthwhile.
Edit: However, the developer has to be commended for the polish put into this game. When it comes down to it, there is demand for Flappy Bird clones - why can't developers take advantage of this?
While other developers lazily threw together a passable Flappy Bird clone in order to reach the market first, Carbon Fire Studio have delivered a quality product for those that want it.
