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.

Dpishere commented on Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam Will Support 18 amiib...:

Funny how people want a Paper Mario game over the Mario and Luigi games because I for one think they are as good if not better than Paper Mario, though I love TTYD. I love the humor in these games as I am typically not easily made to laugh but these games pull it off!



Dpishere commented on Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash Could Possibly be the La...:

Though I absolutely loved Photo Finder I just don't think this series will ever find commercial success due to its very japanese nature (at least in Photo Finder). The games just don't appeal to everyone despite them all being really good fun and I think because of that this may very well be the last we see of Chibi-Robo, which makes me a little sad since he is such a cool character. It is unfortunate that not very many people seem to feel the same way.



Dpishere commented on Super Smash Bros. Wii U & 3DS Version 1.1.1 Is...:

This was always one of the best stages in Brawl so I am happy to hear that it is finally returning. To be honest I figured that this level would have been in the game at launch due to how unique it is but I suppose it is better late than never.



Dpishere commented on Preview: Fabulous Fashion and Questionable Gam...:

As a primarily single player gamer I am quite disappointed that the solo mode isn't very well thought out though I do think that we shouldn't expect EVERY Zelda game to be focused on the story, and considering that there is already an amazing entry in the series like A Link Between Worlds I think it is okay for there to be spinoffs like this since I am sure that there are more than a few people who would love to play a Zelda game with a multiplayer focus in both online and local modes. Enjoy the single player focused titles but don't discount what the purpose of what a game like this is, since it could be great fun! Just realise who this game is created for.



Dpishere commented on Climate "Not Healthy" For Dedicated Handheld G...:

While I can understand why the market is shrinking I am always going to be the type of gamer that needs a dedicated handheld system in his life. I am currently playing through Rune Factory 4 and I wouldn't want it on any other system. Mobile gaming just doesn't do it for me.



Dpishere commented on Review: StarTropics (Wii U eShop / NES):

I received this game as a Club Nintendo reward and though I did not finish it I enjoyed what I played. May have to spend a buck to bring over to the Wii U since save states for a game like this sound pretty useful.



Dpishere commented on Review: Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer (...:

Still kind of torn about this game. I am eager to jump into another adventure in the charming world of Animal Crossing and the lack of a real challenge isn't a huge issue for me. I just don't know how long the game would take to start getting repetitious though since I am a big fan of the series I think that wouldn't be an issue for quite a long time. I'll get the game I think, just not on launch day.



Dpishere commented on Feature: Have You Played... ZombiU?:

I got it for cheap and ended up enjoying it so much that I played it again right after completing it. It is definitely one of my favorite survival horror games right now though it is a shame that we probably won't get a sequel and even if we do it won't be on a Nintendo console despite the gamepad being crucial to the experience in my opinion.



Dpishere commented on Factor 5's Lost Wii Kid Icarus Boasted A Dark ...:

I definitely prefer Nintendo's design of pit over theres so I can understand why Nintendo wasn't enthralled with the game Factor 5 presented them with. After playing Uprising with all of its goofy references and dialogue I wouldn't want it any other way.



Dpishere commented on More Than A Million Super Mario Maker Levels H...:

What is surprising to me is how few people are actually completing my levels even though they are pretty easy compared to most platformers. One of my levels has a 0% completion rate and despite that I had my brother try it before uploading it and he completed it in a few tries. I think part of the problem is that most of the community generally isn't very good at platformers and get frustrated and when that happens there is no way you will get a star.



Dpishere commented on Talking Point: Sweeping Internal Changes Show ...:

@gokev13 I agree completely. No doubt my future kids will be dumbstruck with my love for the N64 and its clunky modeled characters but if you grew up on them there is always that special attachment and I simply can't look at those games and that three pronged controller without feeling warm and fuzzy inside, and even with the Wii U's so called lack of innovation there are games on the system that the kids on the modern era will look back at the same way as I do N64 games. Sometimes nostalgia blinds us and doesn't let us enjoy their newer releases as much just because they didn't arrive at a time in our lives when everything was new and the world seemed perfect. Nintendo is one of the very few developers that can resurrect those great feelings for me, even on their newest systems. Their games haven't lost their soul, period. You can feel it every time you turn it on.



Dpishere commented on Mario History: Super Mario Maker - 2015:

I know I will be playing this game for a long time and even if I do need a break from the game if I have a 2D platformer craving coming on I know exactly where I will go. Some of the levels people have uploaded are simply amazing and the game is only getting started!



Dpishere commented on Mario Memories: How The Super Mario Bros. 2 In...:

It is a shame that the manuals that are released nowadays pale in comparison the the ones from way back when. I distinctly remember reading the manuals from NeverWinter Nights and Morrowind, and Diablo 2 and becoming so infatuated with them that I would almost always start up a new game every time I looked at them. Heck, just seeing the boxart made me want to go on an adventure in their worlds and very few games have replicated that feeling since. I still have those booklets and still love them but I can't help but want modern manuals to be as well-made as those examples. Times have changed though.



Dpishere commented on Mario History: Super Mario 3D World - 2013:

Loved this game. Not sure if it or 3D Land is better since they both excel at what they do. I am positive I will be delving back into this one again though I don't think I will have the courage to beat the final level five times even though I 100%ed the game other than that!



Dpishere commented on Interview: Yosuke Oshino On The Origins And Ev...:

Just one more day and then I can let my creativity run wild with designing courses. I already tried this game at Gamestop last Sunday and I promptly preordered it immediately afterwards. I think I can wait one more day!



Dpishere commented on Pikmin 4 is "Very Close to Completion", Though...:

Pikmin is virtually the only strategy game series I play so you can bet that this is a definite purchase for me. If it is for NX I just want it to also be released on Wii U in a similar way to Twilight Princess was for the Gamecube. More Pikmin is always welcome!



Dpishere commented on Mario Memories: Mario Kart 8 and Discovering t...:

I never had an opportunity to play MK 8 online due to an issue with my internet but I still managed to enjoy this game for over 100 hours despite that and I know that if I could play online it would likely double that play time. Maybe some day I will be able to join in the fun and show off my skills!



Dpishere commented on Mario Memories: The Summer of Super Mario:

Though I played this game first when it was re-released on the DS I can still see exactly why it is held in such high regard from so many people as it is a tie for 64 or World as my favorite Mario game to date. We really need another entry in the vein of this game! Hub worlds have always been my favorite parts of platformers and this game has one of the best.



Dpishere commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer...:

For me it is between either World or 64 with World edging it out by just a little bit. All of Mario's games are fantastic with the exception of a few in the New series but other than those you can't go wrong with a Mario game.



Dpishere commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. - 2006:

I played this one countless times and like others have stated I really enjoyed the various minigames that were included as well. I want a reinvention for the next 2D Mario game though. After Super Mario Maker it has to be a drastic change to keep the gameplay feeling fresh.



Dpishere commented on Nintendo Download: 3rd September (North America):

Unlike many other people on this site i really have no complaints even though I won't be buying anything from the E-Shop this week. I have so many games dying for me attention that I won't NEED to buy games for literally at least six months from now, so I am not concerned at all about the amount of new releases. Judging by the comments i really do wonder how many games a person needs in one week because from where I am standing there is TOO much to have time for, and I play more than most.



Dpishere commented on Mario History: Mario Kart: Double Dash!! - 2003:

I had good times playing co-op with my bro and we had a system in which we would change positions every lap in order to give each other a chance to help out. Good memories, that's for sure but looking back it was probably my least played Mario Kart.



Dpishere commented on Preview: Getting Inside The Curiously Undemand...:

@Dpullam Yep same here. New Leaf stands as one of if not the best 3DS game on the market so you can bet that this is a day one purchase for me. I will take any excuse I can get in order to delve back into the lovable world of Animal Crossing and the fact that designing my home was one of my favorite parts of New Leaf makes this game look that much sweeter to me. I wish this game came out before Super Mario Maker because I think I want to play this one first!



Dpishere commented on Mario History: Super Smash Bros. Melee - 2001:

While Melee was my first Smash game despite my fond memories for the brawler it wasn't until I purchased Brawl that I truly fell in love with the series. Respect it for what it did but I think the newer ones are superior.



Dpishere commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Continues to Shift Its...:

No surprise that they are relying on indies in order to fill the gap between their own first-party releases because third party support hasn't been great on a Nintendo console for quite a long time. The indies that have been coming out are fantastic so this really doesn't bother me one bit since even if they did have say Witcher 3 on a Nintendo system I still would buy it on Xbox One since that is where I prefer to play my third party games. My Nintendo console is for First Party and Indies!



Dpishere commented on Video: Here's What Rare's Final GameCube Title...:

I actually really enjoyed this game as it was one of the first games I received for my 360 way back when. Playing some of Rare's more recent games like Viva Pinata and even Perfect Dark Zero has made me realize that they haven't completely lost their touch like so many would lead you to believe. You just need to enjoy their games for what they are and take off the rose-tinted glasses for a change. Then you might discover that Rare hasn't gone anywhere at all. I hope Sea of Thieves is up to their level of quality as well though since it is an mmo it would have to be in order for me to want it.



Dpishere commented on Video: Here's What Rare's Final GameCube Title...:

@Souldin Totally agree about Jet Force Gemini. One of Rare's best works and a game that truly needs a sequel. I just want to blast hordes of ants and watch their rainbow colored blood cover the room on a modern system with all the bells and whistles, is that too much to ask?



Dpishere commented on Mario Memories: Basking in the Glow of Super M...:

@Storytime7 I don't know I didn't I have that much trouble doing it a few years back though I do admit that finding all the blue coins was a real pain in some of the levels. Overall though I don't regret doing it in the slightest since the game is simply a joy to play.
