Let's have an adventure!

United States

Game Boy hooked me on the Nintendo philosophy and I've never looked back. N64 was my first Nintendo console. Favorite games: Tetris, Picross, Animal Crossing, Zelda, A Boy and His Blob (Wii), Dr. Mario, Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Games are toys and should be (first and foremost) fun.

I don't understand why those who want to have conversations with people don't just Direct Message them. Why let the rest of the community in on your private conversations? It's a bit funny people are complaining to much and the changes haven't been implemented yet. Maybe judgements should be held off until we've gotten the time to use and play with the update and really understand what the differences are.



CaptainToad commented on Poll: What Do You Want From Nintendo's NX Plat...:

I'll be honest. I don't care at all about AAA third party games appearing on Nintendo game systems. The one's I have played are just not my style. I love how Nintendo forges their own path, innovating interaction, game goals, and concepts while keeping things bright, cheerful and above all fun. No other designer does this to the quality and consistency of Nintendo.

I want NX to push the envelope and open new gaming possibilities, not just bump up CPU's and horsepower.

Nintendo has promised to show NX in 2016 but I suspect it won't be released until mid or end of year 2017. Dev kits aren't even out yet and the rumors are we're just one year from release. That's not happening. I'm curious and optimistic but with nothing really to go on at this point I'm not hyped.

Now back to playing Wii U and 3DS.



CaptainToad commented on Talking Point: Mario Maker Can Be A Game Chang...:

I'm not very interested in this game at all. I've never enjoyed a build-it-yourself type game yet. Not only do I not care for building my own levels but I generally dislike the user created levels I've played. It may be old fashioned but I prefer my levels made by experienced professionals.



CaptainToad commented on Feature: A Day With The Biggest StreetPass Gro...:

It's awesome to see a feature on the San Diego StreetPass group! I attend the Los Angeles miitups. They just celebrated their fourth anniversary too. It's great to see other 3DS gamers regularly, catch up, play games and such. If you have a 3DS you should definitely look up your local StreetPass group.



CaptainToad commented on ​Flipnote Studio 3D Now Available To North A...:

This morning I was able to log on to Club Nintendo and claim my free download. However, the site froze before it displayed the download code. Since then I haven't been able to log in. I sure hope I'm still able to download the game later.

Nintendo really needs to work on making their sites more accessible during high traffic times. It's highly frustrating. Especially when users miss out on things due to the site crashing.



CaptainToad commented on Poll: Do Video Game Reviews Need To Have A Score?:

Labels are better than numbers for reviewing games. Number scores only cause flame wars over a game getting a 7.5 when it "really deserved" an 8.5. In that case, either score means the game is recommended and a worthy purchase. "Vital" "Recommended" and "Avoid" are much more helpful than meaningless numbers.
