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.

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

Why aren't there more people happy about playing any new Smash Bros. this summer at all? I didn't expect either version to release this summer.

If the two versions had released simultaneously, the 3DS version would have sold better, because more people have more 3DSs than Wii Us. By having a gap between releases and with the differences between the two, Nintendo will entice Smash Bros. 3DS owners to get the Wii U version just at the thought of getting a bigger, better Smash later in the year. That's not to say that the 3DS version will be half-baked. That's absurd. The 3DS version looks fantastic as well, but this allows Nintendo to both get Smash released early and still have a good game out for Christmas time, covering both windows. And I expect the Wii U version genuinely does have some things that still need worked on, and it will be the bigger of the two, so I expect there are going to be some nice goodies packed into it as well. I'm just tired of all the whining around here.

DestinyMan commented on New Online Multiplayer Modes Revealed for Supe...:

This is just great. I like that in the more competitive For Glory mode that you don't have to be restricted to Final Destination but can play Final Destination layout-like versions of the others stages to freshen up the setting.

That new Final Destination is absolutely beautiful.

DestinyMan commented on Yoshi, Sheik, and Zero Suit Samus Confirmed as...:

I'm actually happy that Zero Suit Samus is a standalone character. Now I don't have to get Samus' final smash to play as her for a little bit of time. Yoshi was expected to return, but I'm glad he has changes.

Thing is, though, I hope this doesn't take up too many slots in the roster, unless the roster will be absolutely massive.

DestinyMan commented on Massive Pokémon Reveals Occur During Super Sm...:

Despite not choosing Froakie in Pokemon X, I'm familiar with Greninja and I admit he does look seriously cool in Smash. Charizard looks really good too, though, and he's part of my X team, so he is a possibility for one of my new Smash mains! I love that his final smash is Mega Charizard X!

DestinyMan commented on 'Smash Run' Mode Introduced as Exclusive for S...:

The fact that you fight actual Nintendo enemies in this adventure mode more than in the Subspace Emissary with all those weird, original enemies makes this far better than Melee's adventure mode and a rival to Subspace Emissary even without cutscenes. Now I'm just curious to see how big it is and what other Nintendo enemies there are to fight.

The biggest thing that made me excited, though, is seeing Kremlings as some of the enemies. That's a strong hint at the possibility at KIng K. Rool's return.

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

My brain is going to take a while to cool down from processing all this information, but I was shocked about the 3DS version releasing this summer. I thought the Wii U version would release first. I'm getting both, but I don't feel like debating whether this will hurt Smash Bros.' Wii U sales right now.

DestinyMan commented on Review: Disney Magical World (3DS):

I'm not getting this game in the foreseeable future because of Animal Crossing and maybe Tomodachi: New Life. The Disney fan in me would like to have this, but I'm going to have to wait for a long time if I ever come around to it. Still, I appreciate that this sounds like a good, solid Disney game.
