Don't expect me to converse with you in a comment section or a forum. I'm not here to make friends, nor am I here to get into confrontations with people I don't know. I just say what I say, make my point, and then move on. I don't really care whether people agree with me or not.

Diddy_kong commented on Poll: Should Nintendo Follow Microsoft's Lead ...:

I think the Wii U already offers great value at it's current price (not to mention plenty of bundle options out there as well.) I know I'm waiting for a serious price cut before I buy a PS4. Plus right now the PS4 doesn't have a single game that I want, but that'll change as the cycle moves along.

I'm perfectly content to split my time between my Wii U and my PS3.



Diddy_kong commented on Guide: Tips And Tricks To Get You Started In B...:

Thanks for doing this, NL. I'm looking forward to playing the actual game a few months down the line. I downloaded the demo when it became available and really enjoyed it, but I found it very difficult to actually learn combos. I found that all the moves more or less look the same, so I felt like I was just button mashing while dodging affectively. Hopefully when I can sit down with the full game I'll actually be able to learn some techniques.



Diddy_kong commented on Video: Sanzaru Games Discusses Sonic Boom: Sha...:

Another year, another couple of mis-guided Sonic games. Somebody wake me when the formula actually changes.

Also, the words "adventure" and "explore" should not be used when discussing Sonic. Ever. Do developers simply not remember the Genesis Sonic games??



Diddy_kong commented on Nintendo Reveals The Master Cycle for Mario Ka...:

I think this is pretty cool. I'm still going to stick with my trusty Larry Koopa, but it'll be neat to have Link be one of the other 11 racers.

Mainly though I just care about the new Cups. That's worth the money right there.



Diddy_kong commented on Rare Donkey Kong Delights to Grace the Wii U a...:

Still have all three DKC games on my Wii. Not in the habit of buying things multiple times just because Nintendo thinks I should. Why, that'd be like buying 3 different remodels of the 3DS... not like anybody would be eager to throw their money away for something like that, now would they..?



Diddy_kong commented on Turns Out The GameCube Controller Adapter Won'...:

No I'm not disappointed at all. People, it's missing three controller inputs when compared to the GamePad and Pro Controller. The sticks don't click and it's got one less shoulder button on the left. It would not work for any game that uses those inputs. Wind Waker and Mario Kart and Mass Effect and Tropical Freeze are all perfect with the Pro Controller. Stop being greedy and stop complaining. You all wanted to be able to play Smash with a Game Cube controller and you got your wish. Be thankful for that and move on.



Diddy_kong commented on Rumour: Nintendo Removed Tharja From Super Sma...:

As somebody who grew up with Nintendo and is now 27 I find this a little ridiculous. There are plenty of gamers out there who are not 5 years old. I think we can handle a character like this in Smash Bros.

And besides, Melee had a T rating. I don't really think that title was hurt by that.



Diddy_kong commented on Bayonetta on Wii U Bewitches as the Best Version:

I don't mean to sound like a troll here because this all sounds really great, but saying "alongside the likes of Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Bayonetta stands out as one of the best ports available on the Wii U" is not a compliment. I have never had a game freeze on me the way Need for Speed did. It easily crashed on me 15 times in 30 hours of gameplay. It once froze on me 4 times in 5 minutes. My frustration with Most Wanted U, coupled with the fact that I just really wanted to play an HD Need for Speed game, is what made me go out and buy a PS3, which at the time was my first ever non-Nintendo console.

I think it's great that the Wii U is getting such a great exclusive like Bayonetta, but nothing ticks me off more than anybody praising Need for Speed: Most Wanted U. That game simply did not work.



Diddy_kong commented on Guide: How to Beat Everyone Else in Mario Kart 8:

Really? Never would have thought that avoiding getting hit by an item was something that I should try to do. I'll think of that strategy the next time I'm in 1st for two and half laps, get nothing but coins from the item boxes, and am completely defenceless against all the shells and boomerangs that are sent my way.



Diddy_kong commented on Super Mario World Speedrun Record Is Broken:

I can beat the game in 16 minutes and I don't have to rely on glitches to do it.

Get to the Star Road, beat those levels so that you can access Bowser's Castle, and there you go. 16 minutes. No deaths. No cheating.



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

I always knew that reviews for this game were going to be mixed at best, but I'm still really looking forward to it. Killing thousands of enemies as Link without having to worry about a single environmental puzzle? I was sold months ago.



Diddy_kong commented on Standard 3DS Consoles Will Have Limited Online...:


I've always felt the same way. The circle pad just doesn't seem up for such a fast paced game. I'd rather not break my 3DS XL just to play this one game. It's going to be real interesting to see how sales of the 3DS game compare to that of the Wii U version. Smash on Wii U is a system seller. I don't think the same can be said for the 3DS version.

Plus, don't we all just want to play Smash Bros. in HD, finally... It's only been like 8 years since the HD-era started. I don't really see why everybody is so excited to play a version that looks considerably worse than Melee...



Diddy_kong commented on Standard 3DS Consoles Will Have Limited Online...:

Umm, I'm sorry - why exactly would you even have these things open when playing a game?? Maybe that's a stupid question, but I've never used the internet browser or Miiverse. Call me crazy, but I only use my 3DS to play games. There's literally like 10 other devices in the house that I could use to browse the internet with...



Diddy_kong commented on Review: Mass Effect 3 (Wii U):

I'm just wrapping up my third playthrough of this game. I beat it for the first time shortly after the Wii U launch, and then I went back and started my new game plus the next day. It truly is one of the best games I've ever played.

I now own both a 360 and a PS3 (I owned neither when I bought my Wii U), but I have never felt the urge to go and play the first two games in the series. The story in this game really does stand on its own. The 20 minute comic at the beginning of the game does a fine job of bringing you up to speed.

I'd say this is my second favourite game on the system behind only Tropical Freeze... now that's saying something.



Diddy_kong commented on Nintendo Direct on 4th September to Reveal Mor...:

Maybe Nintendo should get around to doing a Nintendo Direct which reveals the release date for Smash Bros for the Wii U.

No offense to Bayonetta 2 as I'm sure it's going to be a solid game, but Smash Bros is Nintendo's bread and butter this holiday season. That's what's going to bring in the money. Announce a release date already.



Diddy_kong commented on Resident Evil Revelations 2 Confirmed By Capco...:

This is not a surprise, people. Like Thomas said in an article about a week ago: the Wii U works great in conjunction with a second console. That's pretty much the only way you're ever going to get all your bases covered these days.

If this game really means that much to you then go out there and buy a PS3 or 360; they're dirt cheap now, plus it'd open the door up to lots more third-party games as well. Or if you already have a PS4 or X1 then why are you complaining?



Diddy_kong commented on Xenoblade's Shulk Confirmed For Super Smash Br...:

And yet another character who I've never heard of before their announcement to the roster. Between this, the new Pokémon, and all the Fire Emblem characters I am caring about this game less and less every day.

No game in the series will ever be better than Melee. Its gameplay was fast and perfect and the roster was actually full of characters that the average gamer recognizes.



Diddy_kong commented on Bayonetta 2 has North American Release Date Co...:

Considering this game will likely be about 10 hours long (like every other action game I've ever played) I have no idea why it took so long to develop.

Regardless, I am still excited for it, but it's died down a bit. The thing was announced in 2012... jeez this took forever.



Diddy_kong commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Well, it appears that I owe people an apology for all the times I said that a 3DS with a second circle pad will never happen. Clearly I was very wrong lol.

I have no interest in this because I love my XL and don't really plan on getting any more games for it, but to everybody else I hope this news finds you well.



Diddy_kong commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:


Also, who's to say that 2-3 years from now that Nintendo doesn't release Mario Kart 8: 1 Up Edition (or some similar subtitle) which comes with all the DLC already on the disc?? Not like any game has ever done that before (Skyrim comes to mind.)

There. Your argument is now completely dead.
