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.

Even Zelda games without him composing have fantastic soundtracks so he clearly isn't the only one who can create beautiful music. Twilight Princess is a perfect example of this as he only served as supervisor, just like he will on the upcoming Wii U Zelda.

@brandonbwii Good to hear that it truly is a great game though I figured it would be after I tried the trial in XBLA. I will admit I was waiting for a sale but seeing as that is unlikely to happen soon I will just pick it up when I am bored and in the mood for some retro inspired goodness!



Dpishere commented on Hardware Classics: Nintendo 64:

Say what you will about the console and its controller but the N64 played host to many of the greatest games of all-time, and it for that reason that I still play mine occasionally even today!



Dpishere commented on Koji Kondo Outlines the Importance of Music in...:

Music has to be one of the single most important parts of gaming since an amazing soundtrack sets the scenes in games, whether those moments be happy, sad, or intense. Nothing beats hearing a Zelda or Metroid tune while exploring their world's and in my opinion Nintendo are the only ones who have really mastered this in their games. Some other developers do a good job, but Nintendo are the masters!

If you haven't gotten a 3DS by now I really have no clue what you are waiting for seeing as it has one of the best line-ups of games ever in my opinion of course! So many games that will go on to be known as classics and with the addition of E-shop titles and Virtual Console releases there really is something for every type of gamer!



Dpishere commented on Inflated Prices and Limited Stock Cause Frustr...:

Seeing as I feel that the classic controller pro and gamepad work perfectly fine this doesn't concern me one bit. That and the fact that I expected this seeing as the adapter was only made to accomodate Smash players they were obviously not planning on making a ton of them. Still sucks for people who wanted them though.



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

Well I guess that settles it. I will just get the 360 version when it goes down to ridiculously cheap prices, though I would have preferred it on Wii U it looks like that is certainly not going to happen!



Dpishere commented on The 3DS Proves to Be a Popular Music Player in...:

I already use the 3DS sound player to both listen to music and practice new songs and I have found that it works just fine for me! There are complaints from some people about the volume but I can tell you from personal experience that you just need to give your ears time to adjust and once I did that I now only ever have the volume up just a little over halfway and can hear the songs well!



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

Someone at work asked me if their kids would like a Wii U and of course I told her that in my opinion the system is a must have, especially so if you are a Nintendo fan! The wealth of exclusives that the system now has combined with the E-shop make the Wii u a system that I feel would go along nicely as either the primary or secondary console in a person's home!



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

Though I can understand the criticisms of Lost World I still consider it to be a pretty darn good game and maybe it is just me but I don't remember having trouble with the game from start to finish. Sonic sure has had his ups and downs and though he will likely never again return to games as high quality as the ones Mario stars in he can still be in some decent ones as Lost World, Colors, and Generations has proven.



Dpishere commented on Anniversary: 20 Years Ago Today, Rare Resurrec...:

Back in the day RARE was one of my favorite developers and a large part of that was due to these games. The DKC games hold up marvelously today mostly thanks to the classic soundtrack and fun gameplay, that coupled with quirky characters makes those games one of the best examples of platforming done well, so thanks RARE!
