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.

Hard to believe that it is almost time to delve into another game from the creators of Xenoblade Chronicles, which was most likely the best JRPG of last generation. After I played and enjoyed the heck out of the first one I have been waiting for this moment, and for me at least it feels like ages since we first heard about this game. It looks like all of our patience is about to pay off!



Dpishere commented on Vblank Entertainment Announces Shakedown Hawai...:

@Andremario Honestly I don't really get why I never became hooked on the game because to be honest the game has got it all. Cool retro graphics, a great soundtrack and good variety in its gameplay and those things make it sound like it would be a winner in my book but it just didn't happen. Maybe it IS because of its similarities to GTA since I lost interest in those a long time ago.



Dpishere commented on Vblank Entertainment Announces Shakedown Hawai...:

Cool for fans of the first game but I wasn't overly impressed with Retro City Rampage despite it being the exact type of game I enjoy playing. For some reason it just didn't click with me so I doubt I will get this one.



Dpishere commented on You Can Now Buy A Replacement Wii U GamePad On...:

That is about what I would expect for the price of a new gamepad. Up until this point I was worried that I was royally screwed if anything happened to my gamepad but this alleviates my concerns assuming it comes to the states. Make it happen!



Dpishere commented on Shigesato Itoi Explains, Once Again, Why Mothe...:

Believe it or not this is actually good news for me to hear since I think it is better to end the series than to keep pumping out games for the sake of it. That being said perhaps he could collaborate with someone else in order to get those creative juices flowing, or maybe hand it off to someone else entirely.



Dpishere commented on Super Mario Maker Developers Discuss the Diffi...:

It simply would not have been a true Super Mario World toolset without everyone's favorite green dinosaur! I am glad they decided to put him in because there have been some pretty creative puzzle levels that utilize Yoshi as a mechanic.



Dpishere commented on Review: Mario Tennis: Ultra Smash (Wii U):

I think the score is just a tad on the low side considering that the game itself plays really well and seems polished, which is more than many games can say nowadays. Between a 6-7 is more what I would expect from a game like this since games with scores lower than that tend to be functionally mediocre, which is something this game doesn't appear to have an issue with. That said all reviewers are entitled to their opinion.



Dpishere commented on Cube Life Update to Version 1.1 is Still Due T...:

This is great news though I do wish it could have been released sooner since my bro bought it back when this update was announced to have asynchronous multiplayer months ago, but considering the size of the team I can understand why this is taking as long as it is. I hope the asynchronous multiplayer runs at a decent fps since Lego Marvel Superheroes was simply terrible.



Dpishere commented on This Handsome Infographic Shows Off All The Jo...:

I like the idea of an online co-op Final Fantasy game but the single player is the main attraction for me. Assuming it is up to snuff this one could be on my radar because I really like the premise and I can always use more games with co-op.



Dpishere commented on Mutant Mudds Super Challenge Has Been Delayed ...:

I enjoyed Moon Chronicles quite a bit and because of that game Renegade Kid has earned themselves a fan in me. I have Mutant Mudds but have yet to play it so I will do that first and if I end up liking that game too then I will consider picking this up as well.



Dpishere commented on Feature: Our Top 10 Wii U Retail Games - Third...:

I really can't choose a favorite considering that I haven't played quite a few of the games on that list but I guess I will go with Smash as my favorite followed by Pikmin 3 and Splinter Cell Blacklist. If I was able to play Splatoon I am certain that would have been near the top as well.



Dpishere commented on Square Enix Confirms Details of Gorgeous Final...:

Like others have mentioned 2016 is going to be simply amazing for 3DS owners. I thought the 3DS' best years were behind it but 2016 proves that is far from the case! As for this game I absolutely love Monster Hunter so based on the prospect of 4-player online co-op alone this already looks right up my alley. A demo would be much appreciated in order to solidify my decision.



Dpishere commented on Star Fox Zero Launches on 22nd April, 2016:

The game looked so much better than it did when it was originally shown and with this much more time to polish it up even further I think we are in for something special! The game looks more impressive every time they show it.



Dpishere commented on Dragon Quest VII And VIII Both Confirmed For W...:

If IV, V, and VI are any indication I think I will have to preorder these since they may not mass produce a large quantity of copies in fear that they won't be a big seller. Either way as a big Dragon Quest fan all I can say is: It is about dang time!



Dpishere commented on The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess Is Rece...:

I have already played through this game many times so unless there is some significant new content I probably won't be repurchasing this game, despite the fact that I think that it is one of the best in the series. Also, that little bit of footage Zelda U has me dying to play it! It looks simply amazing.



Dpishere commented on A New Yooka-Laylee Support Character Has Been ...:

Very cool. This game is one of my most anticipated titles for the Wii U but by the time it comes out most people will likely have moved on to the NX. Not that it concerns me since I won't be missing this game that's for sure.



Dpishere commented on Feature: Five of Our Favourite Nintendo Direct...:

I just hope that the new president has a goofy side of his own if he plans to appear in any of the Nintendo Directs because that is part of their charm and is a reminder as to why we love Nintendo. Few companies are so willing to show their playful side in an industry as cutthroat as this one. The Luigi themed Direct stands out as a personal favorite of mine!



Dpishere commented on Talking Point: Deep Breaths Are Needed as High...:

Once again I think people are expecting a little TOO much from these Directs since while they are always cool to see they are rarely groundbreaking. Just don't let the hype train take you guys completely because I have a feeling you may end up a little disappointed!



Dpishere commented on Review: Yo-Kai Watch (3DS):

This game looks exactly like something I would enjoy playing since it sounds really cool running around a town befriending ghosts and helping people with their various problems. I will be picking this one up as soon as I can!



Dpishere commented on Beenox Won't Be Working on Spider-Man Games An...:

I actually really enjoyed Shattered Dimensions, heck I think it was one of the best Spiderman games I have played in years. That being said there were quite a few duds produced by them so maybe this is for the best.



Dpishere commented on Site News: Nintendo Life Turns 10 Today:

This site is by far my most visited webpage for anything Nintendo related and a large part of that is thanks to the well-written articles that are published on a near daily basis. Thank you for all of the amazing and hard work you guys have put in this site and I can assure you I will still be a regular visitor for years to come.



Dpishere commented on Video: New Hyrule Warriors Legends Video Shows...:

@Lady_rosalina I hear ya. I actually would much prefer this game on Wii U but the huge difference in cost simply doesn't justify it for me. Hopefully they will reward people like you that bought the original version by giving the extra stuff that the 3DS version offers for free. Otherwise it is baffling why they would do this.



Dpishere commented on Video: New Hyrule Warriors Legends Video Shows...:

I still haven't picked this up on Wii U but seeing as this game is 40 bucks AND includes all of the dlc and even bonus content this is definitely the version I will be getting. To get all of this dlc along with a copy of the Wii U version you would pay far more than just buying this.



Dpishere commented on Star Fox Zero Website Has Fans of amiibo and O...:

Online play would definitely be a huge plus for a game like this but knowing Nintendo's track record there is almost zero chance of this actually happening. Hopefully I am wrong but I am highly doubtful though if the core game is replayable enough then online won't really matter to me.



Dpishere commented on Fatal Frame Developers on Why Water was a Cent...:

That actually makes alot of sense. I played the trial over Halloween and I found the game to be excellent and I will definitely be purchasing the game when I have cleared out my backlog a little bit more. It is a nice change of pace from games like Smash and Mario Kart and it is a shame that we don't have more horror games on the system as that is the one genre that the Wii U is lacking.



Dpishere commented on EA Will Evaluate "Any And All Opportunities" W...:

This essentially means that like with the Wii U they will probably support the NX in its early months and if sales aren't promising then they will ditch it and I can't really fault them for that. EA is a business and a business needs to make money in order to stay afloat. Hopefully they have better luck with the NX.



Dpishere commented on Feature: Finding Top Speed in FAST Racing NEO:

I love playing some F-Zero and since Nintendo won't give me what I want then this will have to fill that void, and judging by the looks of it this game will do that nicely. This feels kind of like Shovel Knight, where instead of being essential for platforming fans it is pretty much a must-own for Wii U owners who love a futuristic racer! Support these guys because judging by what we have seen they have earned it!



Dpishere commented on Preview: Hitting the Courts in Mario Tennis: U...:

I honestly felt that Mario Power Tennis wasn't exactly brimming with content either though the fact that I am just not into tennis games doesn't help my enjoyment of the series, and that is despite the fact that I loved to play real tennis back in the day.



Dpishere commented on Satoru Iwata is Awarded With Posthumous Lifeti...:

I finished A Link Between Worlds today and once I saw Iwata's name in the credits I couldn't help but think that we will never see another game being produced by him. So many excellent games were made during his tenure as the President of Nintendo. His successor has big shoes to fill.



Dpishere commented on This Is How Nintendo's First Smartphone Game M...:

Now this is something only Nintendo would make for their first smartphone game. Since it is free I will definitely be giving it a try though I really don't have any friends that are into Nintendo gaming so I imagine this will largely be useless for me.



Dpishere commented on Zelda Fans Vent Anger At Nintendo of America O...:

I have never even heard about this meme but that is largely because I don't really care about internet trends at all. Not sure why people would get so upset over this, surely they have more important things to worry about?
