I swear I’m a nice guy, but 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 it with strangers. I just say what I say, make my point, and then move on with my life. I don't really care if people agree with me or not.

Diddy_kong commented on Speedrunner Sets New World Record for Fastest ...:

Without resorting to glitches I can beat the game in 16 minutes. That's getting to the Star Road as quickly as possible so that I can reach the front door of Bowser's Castle, all with no deaths. I'm proud of this speedrun because it's honest and doesn't involve cheating. 16 minutes is good enough for me.



Diddy_kong commented on Feature: The Biggest Wii U Games of 2015:

That's a quality list right there, however, the game that I am most excited about is Yoshi's Woolly World. My lady and I have been looking forward to playing through that together for some time now.



Diddy_kong commented on Miyamoto Talks Up Star Fox Wii U's "Fun And Un...:

I'm going to keep my mind open. I do prefer to just use a regular controller with all of my games, but I'm willing to give this a shot. That said, if I have to spend the majority of my time looking at that GamePad screen I will be disappointed. I want to be taking in the HD graphics on my 42 inch TV, not the dinky, low-res GamePad screen...



Diddy_kong commented on Is Captain Toad A Fungai To Be With? Read Our ...:

As somebody who has been advocating for video reviews for a long time now, this sort of thing makes me very happy. Or perhaps this type of thing has always been in that "latest videos" section and I just haven't been paying close enough attention. If that's the case than I certainly feel like an idiot...



Diddy_kong commented on Review: Watch Dogs (Wii U):

Very fair review. This game is just clearly a lazy-effort all around on Wii U, which is too bad for those with only one console who were looking forward to this release.

It's not a reflection on the console itself, merely on the development team of this port.



Diddy_kong commented on Feature: Five Reasons To Choose Wii U This Hol...:

My 5 reasons:

1. Mario Kart 8
2. Tropical Freeze
3. Smash Bros.
4. Mario 3D World
5. Mario Kart 8 :D

I love Sony, love my PS3, and am looking forward to getting a PS4 next year, but those games right there are the reasons why I'm still a Nintendo fanboy at the age of 27.



Diddy_kong commented on Soapbox: Sonic, It's Time to Talk:

Thomas - thank you. This was one of the best pieces that I have ever read on the site, and unlike plenty of users I actually read everything through before I comment.

You're completely spot-on with everything here and I applaud you for putting all of this out there.



Diddy_kong commented on Video: How Does Watch Dogs Use The Wii U GamePad?:

Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8, Bayonetta 2, and Smash Bros.

The four biggest Wii U titles of the year, and yet NONE of them use the GamePad in a meaningful way, if at all.

I love the Wii U, but the GamePad is a joke. Accept it, people.



Diddy_kong commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

Why are people so upset about a pending score? We're all just going to buy the game in 2 days anyways, so let's calm down a bit.

And plenty of sites do this. They want to test the online modes under real-world conditions.

Anyways, who cares. Come Friday morning none of this will matter. :)



Diddy_kong commented on Poll: Who'll Be Your Main amiibo Buddy?:

Look, I hope this project is very successful for Nintendo this holiday season and beyond, but until these things do more than their pointless functions in Mario Kart 8 and Smash Bros I have zero interest in them.

What Nintendo needs to do is make a Disney Infinity-esque game where there's actually a world for people to use their Amiibo in. That would be interesting to me and they had better announce something like that at E3. But unlocking a Kirby costume in Mario Kart? I'll pass, thanks.



Diddy_kong commented on I'll Take Zelda And Mario Over Sharing Call Of...:


Also well said. I honestly could not imagine just having a Wii U this console generation. Yes, Nintendo's first party stuff is amazing, but I don't just want to play Mario Kart and Tropical Freeze over and over again , waiting months on end for something new to come along. I have very diverse gaming tastes and Nintendo alone just doesn't cut it anymore. It did when I was 7, but not now that I'm 27. Sometimes I want to play racing games that don't involve turtle shells, and sometimes I actually want to shoot stuff in my games. Not many of those options on the Wii U.



Diddy_kong commented on Preview: Having a Brawl With Super Smash Bros....:

Knowing that this game is right around the corner almost makes me forget how truly awful the first year of the Wii U's life was. That's all under the bridge now, though. Tropical Freeze and HD Mario Kart and Smash Bros?? Thank you, Nintendo.



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.
