DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo 64x64: Pokemon Snap:

Every system Nintendo has made since the N64 has been more and more perfect for a new Pokemon Snap game...and yet we have nothing. I don't get it.



DerpSandwich commented on Game Freak Confirms That The Pokémon Stadium ...:

I have a bunch of friends who were hesitant to move on to Black and White because they wanted to keep using Battle Revolution for their tourneys. I can understand what Masuda is saying, but there's something to be said about everything being displayed on the TV somehow. Even if we don't get another Stadium it would be great to have some way to do that. People do want it.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: KORG DSN-12 (3DS eShop):

This is the sort of thing I would have bought when I was younger and dumber. But now I'm just smart enough to know that I would buy this and be too dumb to use it.

(RPG Maker)



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Confirms GameCube Controller Adapter ...:

So does that mean that Wii games that supported the Classic Controller but NOT the Gamecube controller can now be played with a Gamecube controller acting as a Classic Controller? Sweet, I can finally play Geometry Wars the way I originally wanted! XD



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo 64x64: Pilotwings 64:

I'd never even heard of this game until well after the 3DS one came out. I guess back then I had eyes for nothing but Mario. This sort of thing might as well have been invisible.



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

The more coverage I watched the more I entertained the idea of picking this up even though a year ago the mere idea of even touching a Dynasty Warriors game was less than desirable. Seeing the review scores has kind of broken me out of the daydream though. Maybe I'll pick it up in a few years when it's cheap and somehow I've finally worked through my staggering backlog.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Advert Confirms November 21st Launch ...:

And yet Nintendo is STILL hesitant to reveal this date even though it's only two months out and it's for the biggest game the Wii U has got for an entire year, presumably because they don't want to steal the thunder from the 3DS version, despite the fact that the Wii U is the system that needs it most. They've attempted to avoid one of their products cannibalizing the sales of another, when in fact they've set up a situation that's already doing that and in the worst way possible.




DerpSandwich commented on The GameCube is 13 Years Old:

Hands down my favorite system, with the highest number of amazing games I've ever experienced. And it sold the worst, which caused Nintendo to change how they approached game design, and ultimately has been causing me to love the company less and less. So in my eyes, it's both the best and worst thing to ever happen to Nintendo.

But dang, I loved that thing. Heck, I still do.



DerpSandwich commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Ambitious amiibo Pla...:

Right now what Nintendo needs more than anything is a game that basically requires the figures like Skylanders and Disney Infinity does. The draw is in buying a new toy and also getting the satisfaction of unlocking a new character to play with. Nothing Nintendo has offered is anything close to that. And I think their assumption that the figures will sell just because kids like toys might be the undoing of this whole thing.

But we'll see what they come up with. I just don't think the fact that they've failed to reveal anything at this point is a good sign. And unlocking minor additional features in games isn't going to cut it.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo's At It Again With Another Majora's M...:

On the one hand, I feel like this HAS to all be hinting toward the very real release of the game.

On the other hand, even if they had only just begun work on it back when Link Between Worlds came out, they would have been able to show it at E3; it's a darn remaster, which can't possibly take this long to make.

So I'm forced to come to the conclusion that they do plan on making it someday, but right now they're enjoying just screwing with us.



DerpSandwich commented on Capcom Is Remastering The GameCube Resident Ev...:

@SetupDisk Even just compared to regular shooters. You've got to move the stick soooo much for the game to register movement. It makes everything so inaccurate. I'm glad some people enjoyed it, but I really don't understand how, and I feel like Capcom killed the game's potential with those controls.



DerpSandwich commented on Former Cing Vice President Would Like the Stor...:

I didn't know there was a Hotel Dusk sequel. Great to know there are sequels for both Hotel Dusk AND Trace Memory, neither of which I can play despite them already being in my language.

Gotta loooove that region locking. Makes a ton of sense to put out games that just can't be played by a huge percentage of the world despite them already being translated. For all we know the dev wouldn't have gone bankrupt if Nintendo would just be reasonable.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: Pokémon Trading Card Game (3DS eShop ...:

Man, I LOVED this game as a kid. I loved how you could just build all the decks you wanted and store them in the computer. I remember having every card but the Balloon Pikachu and trying the last challenge over and over again endlessly without getting it. Then a few years later I picked the game up and scored one in one try. A good day.

The only problem was that it was too easy. All you've got to do is walk into a gym with a deck that's strong against the type you're up against and there's basically no challenge. It's sort of like with Pokemon, except you don't have to take the time to "train" your decks.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (North America):

@Thulfram I just can't justify buying it when the demo contains half the game. There's this huge map, and in the demo you only traverse a tiny bit of it, and the gameplay is so ridiculously simple that I first assumed there would be 50-100 levels at least. But then I found out there are only 20! If they tried again and included more levels I think they could have a fun little time waster on their hands. I think the game has potential.



DerpSandwich commented on Nintendo Download: 10th July (North America):

Every so often I find myself returning to the Witch and Hero demo for another playthrough or two. I know everyone hated it, but I like it for some reason, and every time there's a discount I have to stop myself. I'd buy it if it had more levels.



DerpSandwich commented on An Iconic Super Mario Bros. 3 Overworld Theme ...:

Hey mods, can you just start deleting the "must be a slow news day" comments? It's getting REALLY old, and they never fail to crop up on every single "for fun" article.

Anyway, Smooth is the best. He's sort of like Weird Al; he tackles songs that normally I wouldn't have listened to and makes versions I love to hear regularly.



DerpSandwich commented on First Impressions: Getting Creative With Mario...:

My only worry was that in all the Treehouse footage the levels were extremely short, no more than a few screens long. I'm really hoping this isn't the case, as that would make these more like little challenges than actual levels. But I guess we'll have to wait and see.



DerpSandwich commented on E3 2014: Nintendo Won't Bring Live Twitch Stre...:

I don't know why he didn't just say the system wasn't capable of doing it, as the PS4 and Xbone were specifically built with extra dedicated processing power for recording and streaming video. If he said that we would all just be like, "Oh," and that would have been the end of it.



DerpSandwich commented on E3 2014: Hands On With Nintendo's New Online S...:

In true Nintendo fashion, they've taken a genre that I normally have no interest in and made a game that I'm genuinely excited to play. With one small mechanic they've added layers of strategy and depth that change the whole experience.



DerpSandwich commented on E3 2014: Shigeru Miyamoto Confirms Star Fox fo...:

I came here thinking that OF COURSE there wouldn't be any spoilers so close to the time of the event. OF COURSE nothing would be dropping with AN HOUR to go. That's what I get for making assumptions, huh?

Oh well, it's not like I wait for this all year or anything.



DerpSandwich commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap (W...:

One of my absolute favorites, and I can only hope they make them in this style again someday. Gorgeous 2D visuals rather than bland 3D ones would probably be what I like best about Minish Cap, but everything about it is just amazing. Give the series back to Flagship!
