CanisWolfred commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

Just stick with some fancy bundles and it'll be good enough. Their problem is making the Wii U look like it has value. A price cut will do little to drive sales, but getting a Wii U plus one or two high-profile games would be more convincing, especially if its a holiday gift...

Looked like they had a bunch of copies when I went to the Gamestop in Colonie. I pre-ordered, though, so I didn't have to worry. I wonder if these answers will be different a month from now? Fire Emblem seemed easy to find at first, but then two weeks later I couldn't find a copy within 50 miles...

CanisWolfred commented on Review: Shantae And The Pirate's Curse (3DS eS...:

@SparkOfSpirit Oh, Bozon's wife really did design Shantae? I had read about that before but thought she came up with the character, but I wasn't sure what extent she had as far as character design goes. However, at look at some early concept seems to prove that she always was meant to have her current outfit, and judging from the age at least, Erin might've actually drew it...

Also, the original Shantae was apparently supposed to be a console game. That explains so much...

Yup.

Anywho, I just hope this game has more frequent save points. I'm playing the original and they seem a little too spread out, and this one won't have the restore points and temp-saves to compensate. I forget if RR was as bad about that, but I don't think it was?

I'll admit, Wayforward is DeviantArt levels of pre-teen pandering when it comes to costume design, but at least they can make some good games to go with the high amount of fanservice. Besides, from what I've played of the Shantae games, they know how to do fanservice right, where it winds up feeling fun and playful rather than stupid and/or raunchy, and ends up becoming part of the charm.

...also, am I the only one who didn't notice that part of the review until the third read-through? I didn't think it was much of a focus of the review, just a footnote to warn those who might be offended and...don't have eyes and therefore can't see the scantily-clad, bouncing boobage on the cover?

CanisWolfred commented on Junichi Masuda Talks Pokémon Snap and Listeni...:

I would definitely like to see where they could go with a more modern Pokemon Snap. The original was such a fun, creative, arcade-y style game with a lot of replay value (IIRC, I haven't played it since I was a kid...) that also felt like it breathed more life into the Pokemon world as you were given a window into the habitats and daily lives of these Pokemon. I think that last piece is the most important part to capture, which is why some cool new ideas there would really get me excited.

CanisWolfred commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Takes Smash Bros.' C...:

@Xiao_Pai That is true, but considering it's more of an improved re-release/expansion, that's extremely impressive. Goes to show that people definitely liked what they saw.

@Faruko I wouldn't be surprised if a few retailers dropped the price considerably to move out the rest of their stock, but looking at Amazon.jp,the normal 3DS already costs over 13,000 yen less than Monster Hunter bundle at their base prices (unless Amazon.jp is out of stock and those are the scalpers' prices).

@RoomB31 You're right, I thought it came out in Japan on Aug. 14th, but I guess that was Hyrule Warriors.

Yokai Watch 1 and 2 are both on the chart btw. Not sure if that's a good sign for Level 5, or a sign that everyone fell victim to the Monster. :P

@PieEater163 809, but close enough. Just in case you intend to play the lottery.

Anyways, to put this in Perspective:

This chart only refers to Oct. 6-Oct. 12. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate came out on the 11th in Japan. It made almost as much as Smash Bros. 3DS' total sales for the past 2 months...in 2 days.

I like how the trailer name-drops the developers, yet I can barely find any info on them. The main website says something about what they've done, but it seems the developer is mostly into Touhou fan-games...which I guess explains why this is more like a shmup-meets-action/platformer type of thing...

@dAviD7 What Direct? What are you talking about? I can't find any news of a physical release outside Japan anywhere, nor have I seen news of a Direct going on within the last week. EDIT: Found the direct, watched it myself, and I did not see a box for Phoenix Wright Trilogy, only a logo. They didn't really say anything about it being Physical, only that it was coming to the 3DS in Australia at some point...
