Desrever commented on Review: Ultimate NES Remix (3DS):

This game has always looked really appealing to me, but I don't own a Wii U so I was especially excited for this to come out on the 3DS. I was honestly expecting this to be a cheap download-only title on the eShop for roughly around $14.99, or so.
I'm pretty bummed to see that $30 price tag. There's a huge backlog of games I'd rather play that fall under that price range. Maybe I'll get it if its on sale at some point in the foreseeable future. :(

Desrever commented on Super Smash Bros. 3-Poster Set Now Available f...:

They're not on my walls anymore, but I have a pretty great collection of Club Nintendo posters from over the years. I was shocked to see how much some of them are going for on eBay. I was about to jump all over this new poster set until I checked my coin balance. Welp... So much for a complete set :/

The sample shown at the top looks GREAT. A lot of the official Nintendo themes available don't look too professional. Clashing colors, busy backgrounds, folders that are hard to see the label, etc. I want it, Free or not.

Desrever commented on Talking Point: Platinum Games Has Secured a Go...:

Oh snap! Platinum made Infinite Space? That game really is superb, so I'm not surprised to learn Platinum was behind it.
Seriously, if you can get your hands on a copy, give it a whirl. Tragically underappreciated. Once you get a fleet of ships the game really starts to blossom.

Desrever commented on Exclusive: Masahiro Sakurai on Planned Acciden...:

From what I've noticed about all the Dark Pit hate, both online and in my own circle of friends, a lot of these people have not played Kid Icarus: Uprising and have no personal attachments to good ole Pittoo. I felt the same about Marth/Roy back in the Melee days before I played any Fire Emblem games. So I can understand where they're coming from. The only solution is to appreciate the subtle differences in the characters or play KI:U.

Also, if Dark Pit weren't in the game there would likely be another cloned character in his place, not another unique fighter.

Desrever commented on Sakurai Explains Reasoning Behind Removal Of I...:

Based on how pokemon and assist trophies work, having Ice Climbers would likely slow the frame rate to 30fps. And I'm sure you all can imagine how pissy some people would get playing an online match and having someone pop on as Ice Climbers, dooming your match to a constant 30fps. Not worth the grief. I'm certain they could make it work, but probably not with all 4 players using Nana and Popo. And that would be a weird restriction to put on players.

Desrever commented on Feature: The Benefits of a Portable Super Smas...:

It had to of been about 10 years ago now, but I remember getting SO VERY excited about a fake picture of a portable Gamecube. It looked like a bigger GBA SP with a GC disc slot. (I'm sure the pictures are still floating around somewhere) And of course the first thought I had was portable SSBM. It took a while... but here we are.

Desrever commented on These Awesome Articulated Nintendo Figures Are...:

Went to Target tonight for some last minute groceries. I went looking for Link and Bowser but they just had several Marios and Yoshis. I found one last Link behind the others and grabbed it quick. Excite!

Opinions:
Reminds me a lot of my old GI Joe toys in size and articulation. Paint job is just fine and its a decent size. The joints bend at the shoulder elbow and wrist in all directions (which is great) but they're very loose and he doesn't hold a pose well. His sword is a little thin for his grip. As for the mystery item, someone in this thread said it was a key, so i was delighted to find a Hylian Sheild in mine. So I guess the mystery items are random which is neat. $8.99 is pretty pricey for a figurine of this caliber... but lets be real... Zelda merch is pretty uncommon stateside. The premium price is to be expected. No regrets, but definitely could have been better
