CharleSketch commented on Collector Cases for amiibo Secure Kickstarter ...:

Wait... they have almost everything done already? They're using kickstarter as a shop, not so much as a crowdfunding platform.

This amiibo thing has really gotten out of hand and Nintendo needs to do something about it. These things are worth so much people seem to have the need for cheap soft plastic cases to store unopened amiibos in. Weren't amiibos supposed to be fun collectible figures you could use with your games? Something like the Skylanders, but on a more basic level? It's absolutely crazy what amiibos have become. Both Nintendo and the people going crazy about them are to blame about it, but Nintendo has the power to do something to fix it. Here's to hoping they do.



CharleSketch commented on First Screens From Banjo-Kazooie Spiritual Su...:

So nobody has any problem with the fact that they've said how even if the Kickstarter campaign doesn't reach its goal, they'll still deliver the game? If they can apparently make the game without Kickstarter, why have it there in the first place? Not to mention how this event was supposed to be a big "reveal" and pretty much all they said was "Kickstarter coming soon thanks bye" and showed a few simple screenshots of environments. I'd also wish they restrained on references and puns to the fact that this will be a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie, but considering the name Project Ukulele, I can throw my wish out the window.

Perhaps I'm being too cynical about this, but I just don't trust these kind of vague promises anymore. Also I never cared for the Banjo games, so there's that.



CharleSketch commented on Two Tribes Co-Founder Doesn't Think He Would H...:

I'm somewhat interested in toki tori 2, since I like puzzle games, but that main character design looks very unappealing to me. I'm all for cuteness, but this character in particular doesn't grab me at all; and I just can't imagine getting into a game where I don't even like to look at the main character.

As far as more games from the developer, Rush and Edge have my attention. Very neat presentation, and simple but challenging gameplay. I'd like to see more like that, maybe on a grander scale or an interesting new package.



CharleSketch commented on Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Confirmed For Eu...:

I'd happily go for the Happy Boobs edition if it were made available to America (even with its juvenile name), I've wanted an oppai mousepad for the longest time, but the novelty wasn't worth the price they go for.

I loved the first SK game because under all the fanservice was a solid beat-'em-up with interesting characters; I've been hoping for an American release of the 2nd one since that video showing off some of the gameplay popped up. I'll probably go for the physical version since my sd is running out of space, but I'd like to have both digital version side by side on my main menu. We'll see.

CharleSketch commented on Take A Glance At The First Screens From Downto...:

This looks pretty fun. I played River City Ransom for the first time on my 3DS last year and I love it, the gameplay is really solid and the characters are great. I hope both this and that Crash N' The Boys: Street Challenge remake that's coming out for the PS3 eventually make it to the west.



CharleSketch commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

I just checked the demo after a friend gave it a spin, and my opinion isn't any different. The gameplay is good, as I expected, and while I understand the complains about having to wait for the opponent to move, it's necessary to wait for them, and see when it's possible, to plan ahead. It could move a little faster; but like most times, people overreact. The dialogue was a bit cheesy but easily solved with a slide of the volume switch. The visuals, however, are not very good. The environments look good enough but the character models are ugly as sin. I might pick this game up if I see it around $15-$20 in the future.

@GamerZack87 30 times, like most other demos in the eshop. I don't think I've played a demo more than 30 times in my whole life, with the exception of maybe Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory, Phantom Dust and Metal Wolf Chaos for the Xbox.



CharleSketch commented on Impressions: Nintendo Made The Right Call With...:

To be honest, I'm not very interested in the game. The setting isn't interesting at all, and the visuals are a bit.. blurry. It just doesn't look visually appealing. The gameplay does look fun, since it looks just like Valkyria Chronicles and that game was great. I might give the demo a shot later, but I feel like it'll just make me want to play VC again.



CharleSketch commented on Video: You NEED To Play Metroid Prime Trilogy:

@Jairo_MC God forbid somebody catches on you saying you gasp LIKED Other M! You'll be ravaged by fans saying that game blows and you're a bad person for liking it.

No offense, but the video seemed like 7 minutes of unplanned fanboy gushing about the game. I won't deny these are good games, but I feel like people put them on incredibly high regards. Untouchable, perfect games that every single person who says they like video games has to play AND like if they know what's good.



CharleSketch commented on Ocarina Of Time 3D Reportedly No Longer In Pro...:

I hadn't yet bought this game for whatever reason and was debating if I should get it digital so it could sit next to the ALBW icon in my golden 3DS XL; but since I've preordered the special edition of MM, I thought I might as well get this game physical too. Yet, I did notice last year that the game had become more scarce on local stores. Thankfully, I had a moment of luck and found the game a week ago.



CharleSketch commented on Not Everyone is Thrilled That Metroid Prime Tr...:

I found the Collector's Edition with the metal case used in almost mint condition for around $40 a few years back in a Blockbuster. Giddily grabbed the game from the shelf the moment I saw it and since then I still feel really lucky I found it. Even if I didn't had it, I'd still rather have the physical disc instead of a download from the eshop (and I'd rather have the digital game instead of buying the used game on a normal game box Gamestop has had on sale for a while), but if more people get to play it, that's good I guess.

Something similar happened when I waned to get ICO for the PS2, the moment they announced an HD release on the PS3 the normally $50-$60 bids lowered exponentially. I managed to get an (again) almost mint condition used copy of the game. It's great to have these kind of games, even if digital sales and remasters make them less valuable.



CharleSketch commented on New Pokkén Tournament Controller and Gameplay...:

This looks very fun! I can't wait for Nintendo to announce this in Wii U; I'm buying it day one. It looks like they took some elements from the Naruto UNS games and Tekken itself to pull this off, and I'm very happy with the results. At least just from a viewer standpoint.



CharleSketch commented on First 4 Figures Opens Pre-Orders For Its New W...:

I swear there's 3 kind of figures 4 Figures makes: horrible modeled figures, Horribly painted figures, and really good figures. This falls in the 2nd category, skin-tone is way off.

Also, they used pretty much the same pose as that figure from the WWHD Collector's Edition. A figure of Ganondorf turned into rock would've been much better, although too spoiler-y. Or maybe one of him holding Link and raising his arm with the Triforce resonating. Would be a good excuse to give a bit of light to the figure itself, instead of just putting some needless light light in the base, thus making the figure at least $50 more expensive.



CharleSketch commented on Talking Point: Club Nintendo's Closure Is An E...:

You mention surveys as if they were nothing but an nuisance. Did people disliked them that much? I mean, they took at most a minute to fill, and they gave the feeling of having a direct contact with Nintendo. A minute of one's time (or two, including the post-play survey) for extra points one could spent on games or physical items? I don't see much of an issue there.

It seems to me most CN members react as if these past months of duds were the whole experience with the program. Yes, lately it's been devoid of interesting physical rewards (because of their plans to shut it down, I suppose), but there's been the golden nunchuk, G&W consoles, figures; and the games offered have ranged from solid dsiware titles to N64 classics.

Maybe for once I'm being too positive about the whole thing, but a lot of people online bemoan the CN program as if Nintendo deserved to give us more and better free games. Just take what you can and want from it: it's a loyalty reward program, not a subscription service.



CharleSketch commented on Poll: As amiibo Expands and Evolves, Which Fea...:

Where's the option for "I like the idea of amiibos even if their use so far has been so-so, but Nintendo seriously needs to do something regarding the stock issue.", because I'm in that segment.

Everywhere I look for them I just see Mario, Peach and Kirby. The only time I've been able to see more variety was the release day for wave 1.



CharleSketch commented on Resident Evil 4 Was Almost A Very Different Ex...:

That prototype video makes it look like it had some potential to be a really scary and unnerving, something akin to Eternal Darkness. I can imagine that later in the game, the line between reality and Leon's visions would blur and he'd start seeing possessed dolls and that hook man without the screen going blue. Among other things to catch the player unprepared. I love RE4, but this sounds like a great concept as well. They should've used it on a spin-off or something.



CharleSketch commented on Wii Disc Software Heading to the Wii U eShop:

Like many other, I wish they'd announced N64 or GCN instead, but this is still good to have, I guess (they could use a slightly lower price). I will say this, though: they better throw some focus on hard-to-find or expensive Wii games, since those are what would be worth getting.



CharleSketch commented on The Bomber's Notebook Will Be Revamped in The ...:

"I think it is pretty nice how they are trying to take all gamers (newbies, experienced, hardcore and casual) into account."

The problem is how hard it is to find middle ground when you aim to please so many. If the game's too easy, the dedicated players will feel excluded. If the game's too hard, young experience-less players will. And with how "hand-holdy" so many of today's games are, catering to the young and casual crowd will mean huge changes must be done to the game. The more I read about how they're making the game more accessible, the more worried I get. I guess only time will tell if these changes make that much of an impact on the game.



CharleSketch commented on Review: Meme Run (Wii U eShop):

What a sad example of a game, even if it's supposed to be some kind of "clever" joke. This is made worse by the fact that Nintendo themselves advertised the game on twitter at some point.

If you can't see what's so bad about this thing, you need to open your eyes. and start using your head.



CharleSketch commented on Review: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham (Wii U):

I might give this one a go later when it's cheaper. I just got Lego Marvel for $10 from a recent eshop sale and while I had fun with it and enjoyed it enough to complete it 100%, I felt it was still a bit underwhelming in some ways. I'll agree with other voices here, Lego City Undercover is my go-to comparison when playing new Lego games; that was just way too fun. It also had some drags, like the loading screens and the combat. But overall I enjoyed it tons more than any Lego game before or since.

It's also worrying to see new Lego games still struggling with button inputs and mapping. You'd think they try to use other than 3 buttons to do so many different things. I don't think I even used the triggers on my Wii U when playing Lego Marvel.



CharleSketch commented on Weirdness: Sony Uses Art From Super Smash Bros...:

Why is the big daddy from Bioshock such a prominent figure in that image? The first Bioshock was an Xbox 360 exclusive game and nothing about those games is iconic to Playstation.

I've also spotted several other characters that don't make a lot of sense there except to populate the screen and make it seem more impressive. Not that I don't like the Playstation, but it still seems a bit off to include them.



CharleSketch commented on One Of The Most Successful Nintendo Games Of 2...:

I just had the chance to watch Frozen a couple weeks ago and I didn't like it that much. It's a gorgeous-looking movie, but that's no praise these days. The plot was incredibly nonsensical; almost all conflicts could've been easily solved by talking instead of being dramatic. That said, I can totally understand why it's so popular with kids; and I almost pre-ordered the Elsa nendoroid that's coming out since it looked so cute. But it included the snowman, and I hate the snowman character with a passion.



CharleSketch commented on Weirdness: The Dual Wielding Samus amiibo is C...:

@hcfwesker I know for sure the Link factory error is real. I have a friend who works at a game store and he told me he saw, just like your listing, a Link amiibo without the red crest on the shield. It was gone by then, but I don't think he was lying.

I bought a Wii Fit Trainer because according to this same friend's info, it'd be a rarer figure to find at a later date. With amiibos such as Mario, Link or Pikachu always being in supply. So what I'm curious about is how much would "low rank" amiibos, the ones they're supplying the less, are going to be selling for in a few months. I am using my amiibo, so it's out of the box, but I do wonder how high their prices might go with time.



CharleSketch commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Nice review. Nothing I didn't quite know about the game or would sway me from buying it, but a good read to hype things up even further. Holding off the numerical score for the online component is a good move. Hopefully it'll be better than on 3DS. I had no problem with 1v1 fights, but when it came to free-for-all matches, I hardly had a match with no lag. Although I'm not sure how much of the guilt is on one of the player's connection.

Also, it seems you skipped to mention that bonus mode where you could sample a video game from one of the many franchises. I had honestly forgotten about it, but Sakurai retweeted something from the Smash account that mentioned it. And didn't they said stages would be shareable? Or was that the pictures from that photo mode with trophies?



CharleSketch commented on The November Club Nintendo Rewards Are Now Up ...:

Not hugely tempted by any of these games but I could use a Wii U VC game to get an extra $5 from the DDP, and Pilotwing is the better of the two options so I'll go with that. And Tokyo Crash Mobs always caught my attention; I kind of liked Zuma the few times I got to play it and I like the presentation of this one, so I might as well go for it and spend the rest of my coins.

After a long time, back to 0 coins. I don't think there'll be anything worthwhile on december, but if there is I still have Bayonetta 1 and 2 to register, I'll register Smash Wii U for the soundtrack, and I'll probably get Captain Toad, so I can rack up enough point for another reward if it were to show up.



CharleSketch commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Pre-Purchase and P...:

I was gonna go with going out and buying it on release day, but since I can preload it so early and having digital games in my Wii U is very comfortable, I'm getting it digital this time, just like I did with MK8.

Having digital games on my Wii U makes it a breeze to play on the gamepad while I'm on my bed since I don't need to get up to change discs, and late at night I can just turn off the console and sleep since I don't like to leave discs in the console overnight.



CharleSketch commented on Upcoming Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Pa...:

Wait... this will delete my replays?! Nuts. I guess I'll do a shaky cam recording with my phone to save them. I have a couple golden moments saved there that I want to keep.

At least I know beforehand that this update will kill my replays so I have a way to preserve them ahead of time.



CharleSketch commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Online Braw...:

People seem to be taking this a bit too seriously. Yes, it's an exaggerated ban; but it's clearly a bug. Surely it wouldn't take -too- much time to solve if people being affected by it contact Nintendo about it. It's as if this is the first time anyone ever heard of a bug in a video game.



CharleSketch commented on Video: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Opening Cin...:

@Yosher Figures. I haven't delved too much on the alternate moves. Don't see much point to them when I can't even use them online.

Palutena particularly, I can barely see any point to it. I want to use her on 1v1, but her default moveset is awful and there's no way to use an alternate one.



CharleSketch commented on Video: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Opening Cin...:

Wait. Near the end of the video, there's a bit with two Mega Mans (Mega Men?) and the Yellow Devil. The red Mega Man puts out the leaf shield but the leaves are red with yellow spots, and the blue Mega Man has this bird-looking thing with Mega Man's helmet. Are those alternate moves?



CharleSketch commented on Mewtwo Returns to Super Smash Bros., Ridley an...:

What I wish they talked about was if there was a way to unlock characters on the Wii U version if you have them unlocked on the 3DS version already. That would be handy to just go straight to the core of the game when it's out.

Oh well, this reveal was a big surprise. I'm sure many had already abandoned their hopes of having mewtwo in considering the amount of pokemon representatives. Hopefully they won't be all smug about it "Hah! Told you he was in!" and all that. And regarding the fact it is DLC, and that DLC is a thing in Smash... well, duh. That's the way things are now, like it or not. At least I feel like Nintendo is doing it in moderate amounts and at a very good price-content ratio.



CharleSketch commented on 8 Player Smash Mode Confirmed For Wii U Super ...:

@Mega719 It's not unfair, it's just how things are. You have the same game, both in a home console and portable console; the home console will be the better version overall.

It's not like the Wii U version existing takes any of the excellence that the 3DS version is already.



CharleSketch commented on We'd Be Cheating Fans By Bringing Assassin's C...:

But the Wii U IS a next-gen console by definition...

It's funny that they talk about not wanting to cheat gamers with a lesser version of the game because that seems to be what they're doing by locking both versions with the same framerate and resolution. Not that I even care about stuff like that because, as smug as it sounds, I play video games to have fun.

I guess I'll have to play Hyrule Warriors or Bayonetta 2, or Smash for Wii U, or Captain Toad, or the well-made DLC for Mario Kart 8 instead of playing a sub-par AAA "experience" this holiday.



CharleSketch commented on Guide: Unlocking the Full Roster in Super Smas...:

I admit to being one of the many skeptics when there were rumors about Pac-Man being in the roster, but after seeing the reveal trailer and better yet, having experienced how he plays, I'm happy to say that I'm definitely keeping this yellow guy as my main fighter. Pac-Man is just a very fun character to play as, and can pack quite a punch. Duck Hunt is also up there for me (again, after being a skeptic), but Namco's eternal mascot keeps the top spot; at least for now.

Also, it seems the way to get characters is a bit weird. My first three characters were Falco > Ness > Dark Pit, in that order, after playing Classic Mode once for each character. But a friend of mine got Falco > Ness > Dr. Mario after doing the exact same things I did. Another one got Lucina instead of Dark Pit or Dr. Mario, so who knows. I got the rest of the characters by playing Smash matches on my own. Every 10 matches I got a new character.



CharleSketch commented on Review: Bayonetta (Wii U eShop):

@snoox I'm not sure the gamecube controller will be compatible with many games besides Smash. It lacks the clickable sticks, one shoulder button and the - button.

By the way, pretty early for a review, isn't it?



CharleSketch commented on Review: Hyrule Warriors (Wii U):

The review still assumes anyone going in still thinks they're gonna play a normal Zelda game. I'd question the intelligence of ANYONE who still thought this was a regular Zelda game and not a spin-off. Since the moment they announced it they said this wasn't a normal entry in the series, yet every single time the game comes up someone says something akin to "This is such a weird departure from the Zelda series!".

It's a good review, and 7 isn't a bad score for this kind of game; but I still feel like the game's been held back because "it's not a typical Zelda game" when it was never meant to be that.



CharleSketch commented on Ubisoft Confirms Just Dance 2015's Full Tracklist:

Is this the regular playlist for all versions? DLC not included? If that's the case, it's a pretty good number of songs... even if I only know 5 or 6 of these. I think I like the playlist for JD 2014 more than this one, so I have no reason to get this. I'll take advantage of the price dip the last version will take once this one comes out.
