Gamer of 20 years, Not slowing down

Male, United States

I grew up playing the NES and the N64 and consider that era to be the one that holds my most treasured gaming memories. I do not however feel that the more recent Nintendo games are of any less quality, as I love them all and will continue to play them well into the future.

I have no idea why people are getting so bent out of shape over this game not being 60 fps I mean sheesh, way to make a mountain out of a molehill... Either way if you don't feel it is worth the admittedly high price then don't buy it. That's what I am doing and you may find it saves you alot of time instead of typing and complaining.



Dpishere commented on Shantae: Risky's Revenge Director's Cut is Nea...:

I wasn't really feeling like paying twelve bucks for the DSi version so the fact that it is finally coming to Wii U means I can now remedy that. Still kicking myself for not picking up Shantae and the Pirates Curse for half off and I will be fixing that if it goes on sale again.



Dpishere commented on Cube Life Battles Minecraft for Success in Japan:

Hopefully they add an asynchronous multiplayer option for the survival mode because after trying out create mode with my bro with me being on the gamepad and him being on the TV I realised how much fun it could be surviving with a buddy!



Dpishere commented on Preview: Looking for the Light in The Legend o...:

Nothing against the game since I absolutely love it but seeing as I have already completed it two or three times I will have to pass unless it goes down to the thirty buck range. Superb game for first time players though!



Dpishere commented on Talking Point: My Nintendo Can Be a Tipping Po...:

I definitely don't like the idea of this primarily being a digital focused rewards system since while I have no problem buying games digitally I don't do it near enough to make a true use of this. It is also silly to think that we will likely not receive any credit for the games we have purchased all of these years and if this is the case then why even bother allowing it on Wii U and 3DS at all? The systems are nearly at the end of their lives so most people will already own most of what can be bought on the systems rendering it useless for those who have been long time owners. I hope I am wrong and we do get credit for our purchases but I don't see it happening. Either way there are still alot of questions unanswered so I will reserve judgment until Nintendo sheds more light on this matter.



Dpishere commented on Talking Point: The New Nintendo 3DS is Yet to ...:

I love my New Nintendo 3DS myself but I can definitely see how it is pretty much like the DSi all over again. The problem is that if they create too many games with just the New handheld in mind then they will be alienating a ton of the fanbase, but in not doing so they give people little reason to upgrade. It is basically a catch 22. At this point I would argue it is too late anyway with the NX on the not so distant horizon, assuming there is a portable element to the system.



Dpishere commented on 7th Dragon III Code: VFD is Heading to the Ame...:

Looks pretty darn good if I do say so though I do think there are a little too many RPGs going for a Bravely Default type of art style. Still as long as the gameplay and story are up to snuff I can overlook that minor detail.



Dpishere commented on Review: Dark Half (SNES):

I wish they would release this on the E-Shop as I would totally buy it! It looks like it has a really cool premise!



Dpishere commented on Eiji Aonuma on the Idea of Giving Link a Voice:

The main series of Zelda have always turned out fantastic without voice acting but if Eiji feels like he can add something through voices in one of the future games then I am ok with giving it a try. He hasn't disappointed me before so I don't think adding a voice to Link would ruin the series, people are just resistant to it because the Zelda series has been around for 30 years and has performed superbly without it.



Dpishere commented on Poll: Which Nintendo Franchises Do You Most Wa...:

Animal Crossing is definitely at the top of the list for me because that one alone could tide me over until more games begin to come out. No way Metroid will be there at launch as I still feel it is too soon based on the comments from some of Nintendo's higher ups though if I turn out to be wrong you certainly won't hear me complain. A return of a classic franchise like F-Zero is what I and I think most fans would want because who wouldn't be excited to be able to experience a new sci fi racer from Nintendo? Probably won't happen though.



Dpishere commented on Review: Final Fantasy Explorers (3DS):

Looks pretty solid so I may have to pick it up when I finish up Monster Hunter 4, but I have a feeling that won't happen for quite some time. Still, options are always nice.



Dpishere commented on Video: Check Out the Introduction to the Jet F...:

This is one of those games that I REALLY want to get a sequel but due to the limited appeal that will almost certainly never happen. Still judging by the video that game looks pretty solid so I probably would have considered getting it if it would have been released. I played through Jet Force Gemini on Xbox One recently and the game still holds up marvelously in my opinion.



Dpishere commented on ​Eiji Aonuma and Malo Begin Talking About Th...:

Absolutely love the game, but don't know if I am willing to purchase the game again. Maybe if it was 40 bucks I would be more willing to pick it up but seeing as I already own the Gamecube version and don't think the game has aged poorly it really begs the question of whether or not I simply want a Wii U version of the game.



Dpishere commented on Video: Hyrule Warriors Legends Footage Shows a...:

Well judging from that video it is definitely a good thing I own a new 3DS or else I would be very disappointed though this should be expected since the original model always seemed like it wouldn't be able to handle a port of the Wii U game in the first place.



Dpishere commented on Pokkén Tournament Modes and Details Emerge:

Considering that I have been playing and enjoying Killer Instinct on Xbox One for awhile now I don't really think I have any interest in getting to grips with another fighting game. For those without other fighting options this game shows promise though. This game would have to be feature complete like having a decent story mode to have any kind of longevity for me since I typically just battle against the AI instead of taking the fight to the various players around the world.



Dpishere commented on Bayonetta 2 to Have a Standalone North America...:

It is totally worth even that price since the game is an absolute gem. I bought the bundle at launch and have sunk 50+ hours into Bayonetta 2, and I haven't even tried the first Bayonetta yet! If you can find it cheaper elsewhere then go for it but if not I wouldn't complain about that price after playing the game as much as I did.



Dpishere commented on Talking Point: Considering amiibo Features and...:

I don't think it would be so bad if they allowed us to use the original Link amiibo instead. The wolf amiibo is pretty cool without a doubt but I can't see a reason why the original Link amiibo shouldn't work too. Are they saying that the wolf amiibo will be compatible with Zelda U but the general character amiibo won't? I can't be the only one who finds that a bit odd. Either way not much we can do about it.



Dpishere commented on Rumour: Twilight Princess HD to Feature Specia...:

Hmm this definitely makes my interest in the game go up a bit though the visual upgrade still doesn't feel like it is quite enough to warrant a purchase, especially since I don't know if I even want the amiibo. Hero mode is certainly welcome for the extra challenge though I have already played this game through dang near 100% so the real question is whether I want to stick to my gamecube version.



Dpishere commented on Sega Reveals More Details On Sonic The Hedgeho...:

@LilC True. If Sonic Adventure 2 was a game made exclusively with the Sonic and Shadow stages in mind I think that would be the perfect Sonic game for me. Those other segments felt more like a chore than anything else, especially when shooting for A rank on all stages.



Dpishere commented on Review: Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven S...:

The first time I played this was on the Wii and I definitely feel that it has held up marvelously throughout the many years since its original release. I will be upgrading this one to the Wii U version without a doubt.



Dpishere commented on Talking Point: Let's Dare to Believe that Soni...:

Sonic gets alot of hate but I am of the one of the people who felt that Lost World was quite excellent apart from a few poor segments, though those definitely didn't ruin the game for me. I only played the demo of Generations but I really liked both the 3D and 2D sections of what I played so if they have learned to give the games the time they need to shine then we may be in for another good entry. Whether it will be amazing is the real question.



Dpishere commented on Feature: Our Staff's Hopes and Dreams for Nint...:

I just want info on the accounnt system and the NX. My Wii U is having problems turning on despite the fact that I treat my equipment VERY well so it may be awhile before even considering to buy another Nintendo console, especially considering how poor their repair service was when I had to send my 3DS in. Either way it will be nice to have the system revealed.



Dpishere commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Renegade Kid:

These guys are one of my favorite indie developers on the E-shop and that is largely due to how much I enjoyed Moon Chronicles and Mutant Mudds. I know their games aren't for everyone but for me they seem to strike all of the right chords and because of that I can't wish them anything but success in their future endeavors.



Dpishere commented on Interview: Warren Spector on the State of Nint...:

Don't really get why people had problems with Epic Mickey's camera since if you grew up playing N64 games you pretty much became a master of camera control. Even the greats like Banjo Kazooie and Super Mario 64 had their share of camera problems, you just had to work around them. In my opinion it doesn't detract from what is otherwise a great game.



Dpishere commented on Feature: Why We're Still Playing... Metroid Fu...:

Metroid Fusion is without a doubt one of my favorite Metroid games, perhaps even more so than Super Metroid but that is largely because I prefer my 2D games on handhelds for the most part. This game had great atmosphere too, especially when considering the limitations of the GBA!



Dpishere commented on Game of the Year: Nintendo Life's Reader Award...:

Kind of sad that the Majora's Mask remake can best a game as amazing as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. Don't get me wrong they did a fantastic job on the remake but I would have thought a brand new game would reign supreme in that category.



Dpishere commented on Feature: Nintendo's Most Notable Moments of 2015:

Overall I am pretty well pleased with how Nintendo performed in 2015 especially when you consider that NX is on the horizon. I have spent countless hours in Super Mario Maker enjoying both making my own levels and playing other peoples' creations as well. Still have Xenoblade waiting to be played and I have a feeling it is a potential GOTY for me, assuming I can make the time for it. Splatoon I can't say much about because of various internet issues I simply cannot figure out but if I had been able to play it I have no doubt that I would've had a blast with that game too. Haven't bought any Smash dlc simply because I feel that it is too pricey for what it offers.
