Dizzard commented on Rumour: Intelligent Systems Is Working On New ...:

I hope it's like the first two games. As in I hope it has partners, original characters (and not just toads) and a good story. (I don't expect a complicated story or anything, just an endearing adventury one )

I feel like focusing on only Mushroom Kingdom characters is fine for the main series games, but I think Paper Mario has always been at it's best when it's been as inventive and wacky as possible.



Dizzard commented on Zack & Wiki and Super Mario Advance 4 Look Set...:

I remember I could never get Zack & Wiki to work when I picked it up first. The motion controls on the remote wasn't responsive (it might have been a lighting issue) so I had to return it. Strangely the remote worked fine with every other game.

So I never got to play it even though I was interested. To be honest I'm not sure I'm as interested now as I was back then.



Dizzard commented on Pokémon Red, Blue and Yellow 2DS Bundles Conf...:

I'm kinda tempted to pick up one of the 2ds bundles if I see them.

Then get the other two games on my original 3ds so I could trade between them. It would be pretty awesome to have a completed pokedex in the original games. (even if it is on virtual console)



Dizzard commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2016:

Zero Time Dilemma would be my pick from the list. Loved the first two games.

Although if Ace Attorney 6 releases in 2016 that would be my absolute number one choice.

After that the virtual console release of Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow looks cool.



Dizzard commented on Talking Point: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and...:

On one hand I can appreciate when people say that adding more characters wouldn't necessarily make the game better.....

but a lot of the appeal (at least outside the competitive side) is seeing new characters joining the fight. I think it's unavoidable that people will want more characters, doesn't matter if that's something that annoys or disappoints you.

I mean I didn't see any dramatic reveal trailers for game modes or stages or new gameplay mechanics in any of the directs. Did you?

I'm not really sure where they can go from here, but I agree with some other people saying they should create an updated version for the NX or some kind of expansion. I guess they could (and probably will) go back to the drawing board....but they'll have their work cut out for them I think. It's definitely a conundrum.



Dizzard commented on Poll: Did The Final Video Presentation for Sup...:

I'm happy that Final Fantasy got representation. (even though Cloud isn't personally one of my favourite FF protagonists, I still picked him up and his moveset is pretty satisfying)

I'm not sure about Corrin really. They're the kind of character that I may very well end up loving for the moveset but not so much the actual character. The moveset looks very creative though. I think I'm neutral overall.

Bayonetta is awesome though, she was in my top five characters I wanted to see added to Smash. She fits into the game so well, I don't care what people say about being too mature. Her moves just scream "put me in Smash!". I thought as much when I first played her games last year.



Dizzard commented on Bayonetta Confirmed as New Challenger in Super...:

I swear when I saw Pit at the start of the trailer I thought Sakurai was going to add Light Pit or something. I was horrified.

Bayonetta is so so much better. (She was in my top 5)

Still mourning the lack of Isaac though.



Dizzard commented on Feature: A Pokémon Retrospective: Generation ...:

My least favourite generation. I appreciate that it introduced WiFi trading and some other features but I felt the Pokemon it introduced were kind of bland overall. It took ages for most of them to finally start growing on me. (I'm talking during the 5th and 6th gens here)

Not to mention I didn't find Sinnoh overly interesting to explore.



Dizzard commented on Video: PBS Game/Show Gets Into Questions of Ec...:

I don't see a problem with there being tons and tons of Pokemon.

You don't HAVE to be familiar with all of them. Of course some fans will know all of them, but some won't and that's fine too. You don't need to know every Pokemon to enjoy the game.

Bring on the new Pokemon.



Dizzard commented on Zero Escape Volume 3 Will Tell a New Tale on 3...:

Huzzah. Huzz freaking zah.

happy dances

I didn't encounter it myself, I think it was something that only came up if you saved in a particular puzzle room. So I just always saved during text/story segments and it turned out fine. (actually more specifically I time travelled back to a particular story segment at the start whenever I wanted to save, just to be safe and consistent)



Dizzard commented on ​Fire Emblem Fates Birthright Edition Is The...:

I'm not that skilled at Fire Emblem (or at least I hate letting my characters die so I'd be constantly save scumming), so I don't feel like I have a choice if I do decide to pick up this game. Birthright is supposed to be the easier of the two right?

That said I haven't finished Awakening yet....



Dizzard commented on ​Miiverse is Getting a Massive Redesign this...:

Limiting how much people can post on Miiverse might be a good thing though....maybe it'll encourage people to make better quality posts.

I never post to my activity feed so the changes won't bother me, whenever I post to Miiverse (which isn't that often) I just post it directly in the community section.



Dizzard commented on Nintendo Is "Exploring" The Idea Of Early Acce...:

I don't mind early access myself.....but your experience with it is heavily reliant on how careful you are and how much you're willing to put up with. I've bought some early access titles that were still great experiences even in an early state....and it can be nice to involve yourself in a community around a game that's still developing.

It's not the kind of thing people should be getting into if they don't have a tolerance for bugs and issues. It should be obvious but it's also not something you should get into if you're uncomfortable playing games in an incomplete state.

That said I feel like Early Access is something that only really makes sense on the PC platform. I feel like having Early Access on consoles increases the danger of the idea being abused.



Dizzard commented on Talking Point: Nintendo's Approach to Transfor...:

While I do love innovation. Sometimes I think it can be a double edged sword. If you're just innovating for the sake of innovating I don't think that's any good. It should be something that improves on the existing formula.

Otherwise you're better off sticking with what already exists.



Dizzard commented on Fresh Details Emerge For Shin Megami Tensei X ...:

I'm a big Persona fan so I'm definitely interested in this. I love how those games go from day to day and they fight monsters while also trying to live their life.

It does seem a bit sweeter than the typical Persona games, but this is Atlus. I'd be surprised if it didn't eventually go to a dark twisty place.



Dizzard commented on Poll: How Excited Are You About Nintendo's E3 ...:

There's a number of "Not for me" and some "Maybe" as well for me.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is my only must have.
After that it's a want for the Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem crossover and a maybe for Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam, Legend of Zelda, Fatal Frame. Fire Emblem Fate, Happy Home Designer (Treehouse really helped push this one for me) and Yokai Watch.



Dizzard commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

@JumpnShootMan It's probably because there's still hope in it.

If you see gameplay footage that you don't like, it's already over. It's easier to form an opinion on something you can see clearly and that goes both ways.

You can't really form a reasonable opinion on something that's vague. Other than complaining that it's vague.



Dizzard commented on Talking Point: Metroid Prime: Federation Force...:

I've always thought "entitled" was a really poor excuse to try and invalidate people's criticism. It's just a buzz word.

We're customers at the end of the day but for better or worse we're also Nintendo fans. If people don't like what they see, then they should be allowed to say so, just as much as people who love something can gush about it.

Don't forget these products that are being shown off are things Nintendo are expecting us to buy, with money.
