CaveDweller commented on This Majora's Mask Cake is Legendary:
I want one.
CaveDweller commented on One Piece: Super Grand Battle! X Will Cram 85 ...:
So happy about this; the Grand Battle games on DS were good fun, despite how simplistic they could be. I'll definitely be getting this, if it's available. The only complaint I have right now is that these 3D models don't look nearly as charming as the sprite work used in the DS games.

CaveDweller commented on One Piece Unlimited World Red Is Getting Some ...:
Hrm, the name of the DLC quest that comes with the Straw Hat Edition is called "Flame Fist and Straw Hat" so unless I'm mistaken then this is definitely new. Which is good. Extra content is always good.
CaveDweller commented on First Impressions: Solving the Puzzle of Capta...:
@XFsWorld He's telling you that fans requested this game, because they did.
CaveDweller commented on E3 2014: Amiibo Figures Will Have A Price Tag ...:
The figures look okay. IMO, they're not good enough looking to warrant £10 but whatever. I can't really complain; I already know I'll be getting at least one of these things.
CaveDweller commented on Mario Kart Month: The Developers Who Tried To ...:
I'd take Crash Team Racing over any Mario Kart incarnation any day.
CaveDweller commented on Review: Mario Golf: World Tour (3DS):
Am I alone in thinking this game looks awfully rough? Kind of like the earliest of 3DS games.
CaveDweller commented on Masahiro Sakurai's Latest Super Smash Bros. Sc...:
This is cool.
And there's still plenty of options for alternative costumes... Bass and Protoman anyone?
CaveDweller commented on Massive Pokémon Reveals Occur During Super Sm...:
@Bolt_Strike Do you honestly think Lucario would be as popular recognisable if it wasn't for Brawl? He was popular, but I'd argue not AS popular as you'd expect to appear as a new SSB character. But rather he made a good Gen 4 representative becaus he was the first Gen 4 pokemon to be revealed
CaveDweller commented on Video: Atlus Serves Up an Early Look at Person...:
@Peach64 As someone who has never played an Etrain Odyssey game, I couldn't speak on that front but I can safely say that with a title such as "Persona Q" rather than the usual numbering system, I would expect the game to be a spin-off - which it is - and therefore I would expect a different style of gameplay, especially in the battle mechanic department. The change in art style helps run that point home. So I can't say I'd buy Shadow of the Labyrinth expecting a "proper Persona game."
CaveDweller commented on Review: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: A...:
ShopTo dispatched my copy earlier today and I am becoming increasingly hyped by the hour.
Something that has concerned me from the start though is the handling of Maya's voice acting. God, I hope her dubbed actress is good.
CaveDweller commented on Big Red Button Explains Its Sonic Boom Charact...:
Sonic, Tails and Amy always looked fine to me. That Knuckles design is flat out terrible though. It just looks stupid, simple as.
CaveDweller commented on Feature: Baby Mario's Global Adventure Through...:
Welp... bizarre. But neat at the same time, I suppose.
CaveDweller commented on Tomodachi Collection: New Life Currently Being...:
@Frank90 I don't see why this is being compared to Animal Crossing as much as it has been other than both being "life-sim"-esque games. They just share genres; it's not like Tomodachi Collection is trying to be another Animal Crossing. That's like comparing AC to The Sims.
@Frank90 Oh, you've played it?
I'm glad this is happening; I'd heard of the game last year and was disappointed to discover that, at the time, there was no word on a localisation. If it reaches the EU shores, I will buy.
CaveDweller commented on Video: Ace Attorney Collection Promotional Tra...:
@rumple88 Simply start with "Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney" on the DS. It's the first game in the series, essentially.
CaveDweller commented on Professor Layton Vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attor...:
I love the Ace Attorney games, so any excuse to play another is perfectly alright with me.
CaveDweller commented on Atari Founder Nolan Bushnell Claims Nintendo "...:
@Lithium I'm sorry, what? You think Nintendo have become stagnant and refuse to move with the times yet you yourself "don't support digital distribution" which will, without a doubt, eventually replace physical games altogether. Maybe not any time soon, but it's something that will definitely happen.
So looking past all your heavily opinionated points (remember that just because you some 3DS games "don't interest" you doesn't mean they don't hugely interest others) aren't you being more than a tad hypocritical..?
CaveDweller commented on Limited Super Mario Accessory Box Reward On Cl...:
@theblackdragon Pretty much. I think one of the best examples is with the likes of the Super Mario Galaxy OSTs. Not being able to legally own one of the most acclaimed gaming sound tracks other than racking up a ridiculous amount of coins/stars is an odd decision.
I actually really like the look of that thing.. wouldn't mind one myself.
Why doesn't Nintendo offer up these sorts of things as purchasable items as well as Club Nintendo rewards? Personally, I think they could make a fortune.
CaveDweller commented on Oh Snap, Now Rayman Legends Is Coming To PS Vi...:
@TG1 I'm doubtful the 3DS would be able to handle a port of Legends as well as the Vita could at all..
Because it was once labelled as a Wii U exclusive...
I still stand by my opinion that, had Rayman Legends remained exclusive and came out for the Wii U when it was supposed to, this current spell of Nintendo doom and gloom wouldn't be as intense right now.
Even so, I not all that bothered. It was coming to the PS3/360 anyway, so who cares if it's also out on another system too? As for the "exclusive content", well, I can safely say that on a personal level, a couple of themed costumes and Murphy oriented levels really doesn't interest me anyway. Let the Vita have its games, god knows it needs it.
CaveDweller commented on Watch Family Gamer TV Play Animal Crossing, Wi...:
Out of interest, any idea on when the competition closes?
CaveDweller commented on Review: Banjo-Kazooie Symphony by The Blake Ro...:
A match made in heaven, really. I'm interested in hearing the outcome, especially with how quirky the Banjo-Kazooie OST is.
CaveDweller commented on SEGA Teases Sonic Lost World Characters:
There's no really much to say to this as of yet. Right now though, those shapes look kind of unusual. Not bad, per se, but a little out of place in the Sonic world. But that's based on the silhouettes alone. Guess we'll have to wait until they're fully revealed.
CaveDweller commented on Tecmo Koei Hints At A Pokémon Conquest Sequel:
The original Pokémon Conquest was easily my favourite spin-off that came from the franchise. I'd love to see a sequel to it on the 3DS.
CaveDweller commented on Japanese Hardware Sales Slow Down For the Seco...:
Not really surprising, to be honest; the stream of big-title 3DS game releases have been slowing down a bit and it's still impressive that 3DS software continues to pretty much dominate the charts over there. ...and yet people doubt the Wii U's potential to recover like it did.
CaveDweller commented on Recent Taiko Drum Master Games Ship Over 500,0...:
I've always been a sucker for a good rhythm action game (Elite Beat Agents absorbed a huge portion of my life back when it came out), so it's nice to see they can still be successful. Never played a game in the series before, though.
CaveDweller commented on Reaction: Our Thoughts on Nintendo Direct - 17...:
I think it's a positive that they seem to be getting the majority of the games we already know exist - and have seen before - out of the way before their all important E3 Nintendo Directs.
That is, of course, assuming this is the strategy they've actually adopted. Who knows, really?
I liked the Pikmin 3 coverage; it's been a while since we've heard so much solid information about it and the variety of control schemes is promising.Game seems to be shaping up well.
CaveDweller commented on Nintendo Direct: Watch The European Presentati...:
Overall, fairly lack-luster except for the Pikmin 3 coverage. Personally, I loved that. Seriously, those water water effects? Yum. And, off-screen play too. Always a bonus. Everything else, on the other hand? Meh.. kind of disappointing but I guess they're saving the big guns fore E3.. at least, I hope they are.
I kind of feel that a Lost World screenshot or two wouldn't have gone a miss though. I'm hoping the Wii U version is a 3D Sonic game, preferably in the vain of the Adventure series. I'm not too confident, however...
