Crimson_Ridley commented on Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush to Roll Into ...:

I fail to see why the title needs to be changed. Like Mario & Luigi Dream Team having the word "Bros" added to the end of it, or Sly Cooper being changed to Sly Racoon due to a slang swear word that I'd never even heard of living in the UK, this is a pretty pointless change.

As for the game, I'll certainly be picking it up as it looks like a lot of fun, and I've been wanting a game that I can just play with the GamePad for a while, as I only really look at it for VC games at the moment.



Crimson_Ridley commented on Gone Home Console Versions Are "Not Actively i...:

OK, it's a decent game, but it's nothing special. It's critically acclaimed because it's a story about sexuality; a girl falling in love with another girl. If the game was about opposite sexes falling in love, it would be a run-of-the-mill puzzle adventure, with no exciting features, and nothing to write home about. The game was not reviewed on its merits as a game, but on its subject matter, which - let's face it - has been the subject of choice over the last couple of years. I'm not knocking it, not at all, but it's become one of those "Oh, a story about sexuality, again. Happy days." moments.

Nintendo really ballsed up my order. Pre-ordered on the 15/01, then had to change my card due to a security check, and Nintendo would not let me edit the details of my order until the billing date. I changed it and they didn't take any money until yesterday but I got an email saying it would be delivered by release date. Just got another email saying it's coming on Monday! Screw the UK store!



Crimson_Ridley commented on Guide: How to Transfer from a 3DS to a New Nin...:

I'm getting the MM N3DS XL Edition, with MM3D pre-installed. I'm also getting the MM3D SE physical copy, so I don't actually want the digital version. Is there any way I can just give the digital copy to my girlfriend for her 3DS, or will I be stuck with it?



Crimson_Ridley commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

For someone that apparently isn't bothered about MM3D, Ben_AV sure has posted an awful lot. Can't allow your views to be second best, can we?

I don't mind remakes at all, especially as they don't utilise all of a company's resources to do. Sometimes a remake can draw a new audience that has never played a game before in to the point that they become a fan of the series. For example, how many people knew of Scarface before the Al Pacino version? A small number, I'm sure.

Remaking MM is a good thing for Nintendo, as it's always pushed to the side and ignored so as to place more emphasis on OoT, when MM is an incredible game in it's own right. Nintendo survive through the love of their characters and worlds, and in an industry where flashy effects and big set-pieces are the order of the day, they struggle to compete. These remakes are needed because they can induce nostalgia in their long-time fans or old fans that have since moved away from Nintendo, and they can draw in new ones that will become attached to their games, and hopefully stick around for more. Obviously they'll also put effort in to new IPs, but a company needs to make money to do so. Games only make money for so long, and when new consoles replace old ones, you need to find some other way of sustaining that income.

You can't possibly get angry at a company for doing this, because it is such a small thing that needn't even bother you. Making this game does not mean that suddenly Nintendo put every division they have on hold until it's complete. It's incredibly naive to even think that.

As for people asking for this game over new ones, that's just the nature of human beings. When you go to a shop, you don't always try something new. More often than not, you'll go with that same flavour of crisps that you always eat, or that same pack of chocolate Hobnobs you've been gorging yourself on, even though Blue Ribands are on offer. We'll all try something new now and again, but we become comfortable and confident in the familiar. It's hard to spend money on something you don't know.



Crimson_Ridley commented on Video: A New Game Theory for Pokémon Lore Get...:

I used to hate Game Theory because I thought MatPat was completely up his own... Ho-oh, but I've grown to love it and him! His theories are always incredibly entertaining and enlightening. I especially enjoyed the one about Majora's Mask being Link's limbo after he died.



Crimson_Ridley commented on Awesome Games Done Quick Raises Over $1.5 Mill...:

@Nanamine - Bi-annualy means every it happens twice a year. The article writer was mostly correct, except it's Summer Games Done Quick in the Summer and Awesome Games Done Quick in January. There's 1 of each, though they are basically the same thing. SGDQ raises money for MSF (or Doctor's Without Borders), while AGDQ raises money for PCF (Prevent Cancer Foundation).



Crimson_Ridley commented on Awesome Games Done Quick Raises Over $1.5 Mill...:

It was a fantastic event, with some very memorable moments! To add on to the 2 that you mentioned, I would also recommend people to watch the Battleblock Theater run with the developers present(these developers are some of the funniest people in gaming), the Tetris Grandmaster run, Kaizo Mario World, Kingdom Hearts 2, and there is just so much more!



Crimson_Ridley commented on Give Someone The Gift Of Nintendo This Christmas:

Congratulations to whoever won this! This was a very nice thing for you to do, NLife. I mentioned in my submission that I wanted to win the Wii U for my partner so that I could use the money saved (I was going to buy her a Wii U anyway) to help my partner travel to see her Grandma before she passed away, but unfortunately she died a lot earlier than expected this morning.

Life is a series of surprises, good and bad, but this kindness that the people of this website has shown to help make someone have a great Christmas is very inspiring! :)



Crimson_Ridley commented on UK Retailer GAME Cashes In On Intense amiibo D...:

This is why I never shop at GAME, and neither should any gamer with any sense. Supermarkets, the internet and lesser known game stores are where you should spend your money. GAME charge £49.99 for every new Wii U game! No wonder they almost went out of business.



Crimson_Ridley commented on Weirdness: Legless Peach amiibo Now Up For Sale:

Am I the only one that is actually quite disappointed with the quality checking of these amiibos? One would assume that a product made by Nintendo would be of a very high standard, yet you have to really look at each figure that you buy to make sure it's not got dodgy eyes, a missing limb, paint defects, etc. The Disney Infinity figures are much higher quality, and the same should be expected of Nintendo. Don't get me wrong, I really enjoy my Samus and Mario amiibo, but I'm not particularly happy with the cheap quality.



Crimson_Ridley commented on Download: Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire...:

I have 2 OR/AS demo codes here that I don't need. The majority of you have probably already got the demo, but for those still waiting, good luck. :)


Enjoy. Please be kind and say thanks once you've activated one. Have a great day, everyone! :)



Crimson_Ridley commented on Official Nintendo Magazine Announces Closure i...:

That's a shame. It's been hard to find the magazine lately though, with most Supermarkets dropping it, and even WHSmith had very few copies. I used to read the magazines a lot, though I preferred NGamer (I may be slightly wrong on the name). I'll pick up a copy of the last issue for collection purposes though.



Crimson_Ridley commented on Super Mario World Speedrun Record Is Broken:

Does anyone have the link to the YouTube video? I can't view Flash videos on my iPad. I thought most people used HTML5 these days.

EDIT: Ah, is the video from Twitch? That might explain it, and why I can't find a YouTube video of it. I'll have to jump to my PC then. :)



Crimson_Ridley commented on Capcom Is Suing Koei Tecmo For Patent Infringe...:

Capcom, here's an idea; go back to making games your fans actually care for than rehashing SF IV over and over, turning Resident Evil in to a train wreck, and ruining the Breath of Fire franchise, amongst other things. You'll find that you'll start making money again so that you need not try to file some pathetic lawsuit.

Tell you what, for that advice you can hire me. Then, I can throw it back in your face because I'm not one for sailing on a sinking ship.



Crimson_Ridley commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Confirms New 'Retro' GameCub...:

Are wireless controllers really all that important to you all? How far do you sit away from the screen that a wired controller is an inconvenience? Stop being the pathetic "gamers" of the internet and moaning about trivial things. Grow up.



Crimson_Ridley commented on Miiverse Tells the Tale of a Broken Mario Kart...:

Mine arrived at 10am this morning! I then got a text from them (which also left me wondering why Nintendo feels they can just give out my mobile number) to tell me it had been delivered.

I'm now currently wearing my Bullet Bill shirt, have put my Spiny Blue Shell and Red Shell key ring on my shelf, slotted the case in to my Wii U collection, and have played a few Grand Prix's on the game. It's excellent, and so gorgeous!
