DerpSandwich commented on Review: Pokémon Rumble World (3DS eShop):

Dang. I was really hoping "free to start" meant purchasing permanent content in little packs. Even if it's well-priced, I absolutely refuse to spend any amount of money on something that gets used up. So yet again, it's a game I'll play and never give a single cent to Nintendo for. I want to support the game, but I can't support the model. Frustrating.



DerpSandwich commented on Pirate Bay Co-Founder Unable To Experience The...:

I try not to be so negative, but this comment section is just filled with immense amounts of stupid. This sort of subject always brings it to the surface, I guess. People love to vilify and dehumanize without knowing any real details.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Yoshi Touch & Go (Wii U eShop / DS):

I remember trying this out and being really underwhelmed.

Man, and this was a full retail title. I complain about game content/prices now, but the early days of DS were just filled with $30 games that offered about an hour of entertainment.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Super Mario 64 (Wii U eShop / Nintendo...:

@BLPs I agree that there are tons of control problems. I don't understand how people can still think this game is so perfect but Ocarina of Time didn't age as well. I think it's the exact opposite. I play Super Mario 64 largely for nostalgia, and I still really like it, but I feel like it's showing its age.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Mario Kart DS (Wii U eShop / DS):

I remember being floored by the graphics when this came out. McDonald's had free wifi at the time, so I got dropped off there once so I could play online, and I was all, "I'm going to come here and play all the time!" and then I saw that every single game was just me and seven other players snaking past me. Every last one. So I stopped trying.

Also, BRING BACK CHALLENGE MODE! It's the reason this was the last Mario Kart I've ever felt was worth buying.



DerpSandwich commented on Talking Point: It's Too Early to Write Off the...:

@Quorthon It's happened before, but I just don't see it happening this time. They've already been developing it for so long and the next system is (from my perspective) still so far out. Since they announced that they were working on Twilight Princess in 2003, inevitably releasing so close to the Wii made the cross-gen jump a given.



DerpSandwich commented on Talking Point: It's Too Early to Write Off the...:

I gave up on the Wii U long before the delay. This is just one more in a long line of blows. For the record though, I absolutely don't believe this has anything to do with putting it on the NX. That idea is completely absurd to me, and so is the idea that the NX will come out any time soon. End of 2017 at the earliest, and there's no way they would delay Zelda for two years just for that.



DerpSandwich commented on Feature: Ten Must-Play Games for the Nintendo 3DS:

@Caryslan I did enjoy LBW overall, though I also don't understand all the love it gets. Being based on a pre-existing world made it bland and boring, it was way too easy, and as you said, the item rental thing sort of defeated a lot of the purpose. Progression is one of the things I love most in Zelda. It was mildly fun, but not the second coming of 2D Zelda a lot of people make it out to be.



DerpSandwich commented on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U No Longer Set fo...:

I would be in the "better to get it right than to get it fast" camp if Skyward Sword wasn't a disappointment a half-decade in the making. Until I play it and see that it's the best Zelda game ever I'm going to be staring at my empty Wii U and thinking about how crappy this generation has been so far.



DerpSandwich commented on Eiji Aonuma Reveals More Information About the...:

Man, they spent a single year on that game and it's one of the best Zeldas there is. Why can't they give us another game using the same engine? Why did it take three times as long just to give us an upgraded version of this one?

I feel like Nintendo spends too much time reinventing the wheel on nearly every console iteration as far as graphics and engine go. I have complete confidence that they could release Zeldas twice as fast if not faster if they would just use the same style a couple times in a row and focus on giving us a new story and dungeons, as they did with MM.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Mario Party 10 (Wii U):

I've never actually considered getting a Mario Party game until this one, when I saw the Bowser Party mode. Seeing that there are only a few games and it's really just Bowser trying to catch up and knock you out the whole time rather than actually competing, my interest is gone once again.



DerpSandwich commented on The Happy Mask Salesman is Teased for a Reappe...:

I doubt we'll get a Majora's Mask sequel, but it would be really awesome. Playing it again for the first time in years makes me realize how many mechanics (mostly in the form of masks) just didn't get used to their fullest. I'd like to see a game that uses basically the whole existing set--even if you've got to re-collect them or something--in new ways, and with many of them used for more than a single piece of heart.



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

Wasn't sure about it, bought it anyway. Only sat down with it once so far, put off by confusing map progression and a constant feeling that I was leaving a bunch of stuff behind. Nice to see that not only was the level-editor cancelled, but the creator himself admits he wasn't even making a game that interested him. Makes me feel real good about taking leaps of faith and supporting the little guys.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Metroid: Zero Mission (Wii U eShop / G...:

I'm pretty excited to play this. I loved Super Metroid, and Fusion was sort of fun but way too linear (and extremely hard!!!) So this looks right up my alley. I've always wanted to play the original, but I'm never very good at playing NES games, so I think this is a perfect way to experience it. That length is a bit of a bummer though.



DerpSandwich commented on GameStop Lists Crazy Majora's Mask New Nintend...:

Nice, take a super sought-after item and bundle it with $300 of other stuff so people have to buy the whole thing if they want the system. One reason I don't support Gamestop.

I remember the manager at my Best Buy tried these exact obligatory bundle shenanigans when the DS came out and I'm pretty sure he got fired.



DerpSandwich commented on Remake Request: Super Metroid 3D on Nintendo 3DS:

This game is still so playable that I'd rather see a Metroid 2 remake. I'm expecting one of the two to be announced soon, though. Well, more than anything I'd rather have a new 2D adventure on 3DS, but with what Nintendo's been saying recently I expect a remake.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Download: 5th March (North America):

$20 for Tipping Stars? It's like they wanted to experiment with cross-buy but some grumpy exec didn't want them to lose money, so they doubled the price of the game to make up for it.

Tempted to pick up Tengami for that price, but I've already got more games to play than I can count.



DerpSandwich commented on Site News: A New Readership Survey Has Appeared:

I expected it to have more to do with Nintendo Life. No...actually I guess I expected it to have ANYTHING to do with Nintendo Life.

I was sad that I wasn't able to say how I felt about Rock Paper Shotgun for their recent display of unprofessionalism.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (Wii U):

I'm in love with clay-style games, so I wish this was something I was interested in. But I felt like Canvas Curse was only kind of fun, and for this price and length it just doesn't seem like a good deal to me. I guess I can still watch videos on it though.



DerpSandwich commented on A Wild Update on Pokémon Shuffle Appears:

I was actually eager to try this until you said that you use a heart regardless of whether or not you lose the level. That kills the whole thing for me. I've had lots of fun with similar mobile games, and I actually like being limited because it prevents me from playing it for hours. This is just too far though.



DerpSandwich commented on Poll: Are You An Early Adopter With The New Ni...:

As cool as it would be, I just can't justify spending that much money on a system that plays the same games mine already does. Those minor improvements aren't worth losing $100+. I'm happy for everyone that's super into it though.



DerpSandwich commented on Video: Guess What, Super Mario Sunshine Looks ...:

This is literally all I want. Old games uprezzed to 1080p at 60fps. But Nintendo refuses to do that. Either we get a huge, expensive, time-consuming remastering, or we get the original--end of story.

Why does everyone downplay this stuff by saying "All they're doing is uprezzing it"? So many Nintendo games already look so amazing that this is all they need!



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (North America):

So much incredible content--so many hours and hours of pure fun--for just $10. Finding old copies of just Metroid Prime 1 for $5 already baffled me. But mind can't even handle this concept. They're some of the best games I've ever played, and some of the few I would still gladly pay full price for--EACH.



DerpSandwich commented on Animal Crossing Announcement Community Launche...:

Thank god, I thought this was going to be for a Wii U announcement, but it sounds like they're just planning on supporting New Leaf. At least I hope that's the case. I really have no idea why people are asking for AC on the Wii U when the 3DS is the perfect platform for the series. I'm fully convinced that it never needs to come to another home console.



DerpSandwich commented on Splatoon Updates Give More Insight Into Stages...:

This game really is shaping up nicely. When it was revealed it looked like a $10 eShop game, but they've fleshed it out enough that now it looks like a full retail title. And I love how different the style is from the usual Nintendo fair. I think this will attract the "older-young" audience, which is something Nintendo has needed desperately for a while. Nintendo has been too cutesy lately, and it's probably scaring away a lot of preteens and teens.
