DestinyMan commented on Miiverse Update Imposes Restrictions on Postin...:

While the time limit may sound negative, this will actually help the comment sections in Sakurai's Pic of the Day for Smash Bros. immensely. There's always random, ridiculous posts people make on those and the comment section fills up to the 1005 post limit rather quickly. There is a limit to comments after all. So this will help give people more time throughout the day to make a Pic of the Day comment.

I've always seen Miiverse as more of a forum than chat room, anyway.

DestinyMan commented on Nintendo Confirms Mario Golf: World Tour DLC, ...:

What's with people thinking Nintendo's entering some sort of dark age of DLC? This seems like a fair offer to me. The main game itself is still robust and not bare-bones, and $15 doesn't sound much when you think about 108 holes of golf and four playable characters in total. 108 is a big number in that context.

DestinyMan commented on Talking Point: The Game Boy is 25 Years Old, a...:

I didn't play Game Boy when I was little, but my sister played Pokemon Yellow on the Game Boy Color, I think. I didn't get started on portable gaming until the GBA, but it's tough to determine whether I like consoles or handhelds the most. You'll obviously have bigger and better games on home consoles, but there's something about handheld gaming that clicks with me.

Beside a very short stint playing a couple of Game Boy games in my GBA, I've really gotten started playing Game Boy games on the 3DS VC, so I was very happy to get to play classics like Super Mario Land 1 and 2, the original Tetris, Kirby's Dream Land, and the first three Wario Land games. Hopefully someday I'll get to play Donkey Kong Land on my 3DS.

DestinyMan commented on Review: NES Remix 2 (Wii U eShop):

I'll be getting this game even though I didn't get the first one, though I might get that eventually. The better selection of games on offer is what enticed me to get this. I'm looking forward to it!

DestinyMan commented on Nintendo Gets Dramatic in New Kirby: Triple De...:

Well, that was interesting. It must have been a good ad to make me watch it multiple times. Pretty effective for advertising a game about a pink creature sucking up almost anything into his mouth. That does sound pretty dramatic.

DestinyMan commented on Feature: The Nintendo Easter Egg Hunt - 2014:

Hey, thanks for bringing up my Iwata cameo in WarioWare from last year!

When you turn the music volume down and have Donkey Kong play his 3DS in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, you can faintly hear sound effects from what game Donkey Kong is playing. The game he's playing is either Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, or Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

Another cameo in Tropical Freeze is Cranky's record player from the first Donkey Kong Country. Ground-pound in front of it, and it plays the Donkey Kong Country theme just as it played in the past!

The other Tropical Freeze Easter egg could be debatable, but in Grassland Groove, there is a rock formation that looks roughly like King K. Rool's head. There's a big banana bunch floating where his crown would be.

DestinyMan commented on Month Of Kirby: Minigame Mania:

What about the minigames in Kirby: Mass Attack? Those have been the best so far! They have a bunch of Kirby fanservice, and they rival the main game, honestly.

DestinyMan commented on Poll: Have Your Say on Nintendo Direct Bonanza...:

I like both the big and single Directs, though I like how the single game Directs have a lot more details in them about that one specific game.

I prefer live Nintendo Directs.

I prefer a Nintendo Direct once every month if Nintendo has the development information to provide it.

For this E3, I want Nintendo to do both a Direct and a press conference like in 2012, though I honestly expect another E3 Direct. While I like the press conference for its flashier presentation, the two formats still serve the same function and are both effective for getting people hyped for new games. However, I didn't like how last year's E3 Direct was undermined by the terrible lag, so that's why I want both formats this year so that way the news will be delivered as clearly as possible. And I think that, unlike in 2012, Nintendo has a lot more games waiting behind the curtain, so they wouldn't have to worry about trying to explain a new console. They just need to try to convince us with plenty of new, exciting games to get the console.

DestinyMan commented on Month Of Kirby: Kirby's Lost Levels:

I think the low quality argument against a 3D Kirby game is a poor excuse. If it's poor quality, then work on it. Make it better. Don't just give up. A 3D Kirby game would be entirely possible to make.

DestinyMan commented on Month Of Kirby: Kirby's Lost Levels:

The three cancelled Kirby games mentioned at the end would have all been excellent games. That artsy screenshot looks great. I especially like the idea of a true, free-roaming 3D Kirby game. At least Kirby is still getting excellent games.

DestinyMan commented on First Impressions: Tomodachi Life:

So the people behind WarioWare made this game? That explains everything, and now I'm even more convinced I'll get this game ASAP. It looks and sounds like absolutely ridiculous fun. I like Miis and imported a ton of them into my Wii, 3DS, and Wii U, so that should make it interesting to say the least.

DestinyMan commented on Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshid...:

I think I've only gotten two warnings on Miiverse; one in Super Mario 3D World for "strategic information" (which I don't understand at all) and the other just last night in WarioWare, Inc. Mega Microgames for spoilers. In the latter all I did was say that Wario secretly loved Mona and that they would make an interesting couple, then showed a screenshot of Wario dreaming of Mona. I could see how that could be a spoiler, but it's not a big part of the story.

I think a lot of the Miiverse mods' power comes from people making silly reports.

DestinyMan commented on Veronica Mars Star Kristen Bell Reveals Her Fo...:

It shouldn't be surprising that as time goes on, you would have less and less time to play video games because of college, work, family, and life in general. College alone has cut down on my play time, but I still find the time. I don't see myself ever completely abandoning video games.

DestinyMan commented on Feature: Time For a Super Smash Bros. New Chal...:

It was a very tough choice between Charizard and Zero Suit Samus, but I chose Charizard. He looks really expressive in this game compared to the last one. Zero Suit Samus still looks fantastic, though, despite hose high-heel jet boots.

DestinyMan commented on Review: WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! (Wii...:

Got this again even with the other versions, because this is one of my favorite games and I want Nintendo to keep supporting GBA VC and WarioWare! I've so many classic memories playing this in 2003, it was honestly my Game of the Year. I enjoyed playing games with Wario, Kat & Ana, and the other strange, but cool characters.

Did you know this game was made in secret by Nintendo without the higher-ups even knowing about it for a while. That's why this game seems like a window into Nintendo's creativity. They actually didn't expect this game to sell all that well because of how strange it is. I mean, Wario becomes the greedy president of a video game company with his friends that consist of a afro-wearing dancer, flamboyant, young woman, dog and cat taxi drivers, a Nintendo fanboy, an alien, a mad scientist, and little ninja girls as developers. How much more random and strange can you get? But it worked brilliantly!

DestinyMan commented on Nintendo Download: 10th April (North America):

I'm getting WarioWare, Inc. Mega Microgame$ for the Wii U today! It's a great birthday present considering it's one of my favorite games and the WarioWare series is one of my favorite Nintendo series. While Wario World was my first Wario game, it was the first WarioWare that made me a Wario fan. Hopefully Nintendo might bring WarioWare: Twisted to Wii U some day, as that is my favorite in the series.

DestinyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

The Wii U version is clearly not ready yet because it's going to have the most content. To use music as an example, 3DS stages will only have two tracks per stage while Wii U stages will have several tracks per stage. The console version will obviously be the biggest and best of the two, and that will take time to make. It's silly to assume Smash Bros. Wii U could have released this summer like Smash Bros. 3DS. It's just not possible without Sakurai severely rushing it, and Sakurai does not rush games. He is the anti-rusher.

DestinyMan commented on Review: Kirby & The Amazing Mirror (Wii U eSho...:

I played this on the 3DS as an Ambassador gift, but I honestly wasn't impressed. Sure, it looks and sounds nice, but the backtracking was tedious and confusing, which is not a good combination. Not that it was a major minus, but it's a little disappointing that King Dedede doesn't appear at all in this game, which is surprising considering he's been in every other Kirby game, while Meta Knight plays a major role. It's not a bad game, but it does have notable flaws.

DestinyMan commented on Super Smash Bros. Hitting 3DS This Summer, Wii...:

Again, why aren't more people excited about playing Smash Bros. this summer? This is summer, folks. It's not like both versions have been pushed to Winter. So many wanted to play a new Smash this summer, and there will be, and they still gripe. And before someone tries to tell me again that Nintendo is rushing Smash Bros. 3DS, we're talking about Masahiro Sakurai here. He is the absolute last person in Nintendo who would rush a game.
