DragonbornRito commented on Nintendo's Latest Hanafuda Deck Is Perhaps Its...:

Clubhouse Games for the DS (which can be found at Gamestop for less than $5) has a Koi-Koi game which was my first introduction into the world of Hanafuda. Anyone wanting a crash course on how the game works could do much worse than CHG. (Not to mention, CHG is a terrific title for its download play, packing a TON of replay value if you have a fellow board game lover to play with.)

I actually picked up a Gameboy Printer from not too long ago, but the thermal paper in there is so old, it won't print a reliable image any more. And finding replacement thermal paper for it is a near impossibility from my (admittedly limited) research. Still have my old Gameboy Camera from my childhood, along with Link's Awakening DX and a copy of Pokemon Yellow. I'm so ready to start printing these things out!

EDIT: Found some paper for it!



DragonbornRito commented on First Impressions: Linking Up in The Legend of...:

@Dr_Corndog Absolutely. Horrible pacing, weak presentation, absolutely too much time spent on certain games (cough Super Mario Maker cough), too little time spent on other things... I still feel that the actual game line-up could've been stronger, but the presentation was truly the problem.



DragonbornRito commented on Samurai Warriors: Chronicles 3 Is Slashing Its...:

I never could get over the repetitive, dragged-out gameplay of the Warriors series. I actually do enjoy Hyrule Warriors, but I'd rather just play a Zelda game than "Link's Kill-Combo and Super Finishing Attack Training". I bought the first Samurai Warriors that came out on the 3DS near launch (was it a launch title?) and gave it about two days worth of playing before it bored me out of my mind. I don't think Link and Zelda outfits will change my viewpoint of this particular series.



DragonbornRito commented on Video: Greatness Awaits In This New Project CA...:

PC version for me. No use getting a multiplat that's going to be better on my PC and having to wait months for a Wii U release. Nintendo's IPs and the random third-party Nintendo platform exclusives are all I need to justify my Nintendo purchases.

EDIT: That said, I wish the NL guys would address the fact the PC version is also due out at the same time as the console versions (mid-May). Had to check Steam myself to make sure we didn't get pushed back too.



DragonbornRito commented on Former Rare Devs Playtonic Want Donkey Kong Co...:

Abso-freaking-lutely. I argued for K. Rool back in Brawl. DK as a series has gotten the shaft so many times in SSB that it's not funny. Only two characters from a series with tons of people to choose from (Dixie would be a close second, she practically writes herself). A series that practically cemented Nintendo as a video game company. They've historically gotten some of the worst stages in Smash Bros. Congo/Kongo Jungle was okay, Jungle Japes was (and still is) pretty crummy. Rumble Falls... Well, let's not go there. And now we have Jungle Hijinx which is a neat idea, but terrible in execution. Fighting in the background for any extended period is a literal eye-strain.



DragonbornRito commented on Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate April DLC Available ...:

@ThomasBW84 I mean seriously! I could see locking the stuff behind a two-monster quest, but facing off against a Zinogre and a Kirin that hit like G-Rank monsters only to be matched up with Mr. One-Shot-Kamehameha Rajang after spending the previous 35 minutes dropping the other two is pure torture. I've only collected two Triforces so far.......



DragonbornRito commented on Sony Hardware Takes Charge of Japanese Charts ...:

@Moon Not too surprising really. It's a bit of a doldrums right now on the Nintendo front, and anyone who thought that Sony wouldn't have a good week with all the AAA titles that dropped in the past couple of days was fooling themselves.

Nintendo has a strong line-up starting next month with Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, and really ramps up with Splatoon in May leading into what I'm predicting will be a very hype-filled E3 (more info on the games from last year, like Zelda U for instance).

It's just been a slow March. (Pun unintended)



DragonbornRito commented on Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Confirmed For Eu...:

A few months back, people were complaining that Zero Suit Samus is oversexualized in Smash 4. Now people are lining up to buy a game like this. I honestly don't get it? It's only bad when you perk up a character who used to be fairly tame?



DragonbornRito commented on New Nintendo 3DS Release Date Confirmed for 13...:

@Refurin I'm not giving up hope at all. My GameStop says they haven't been able to do store-level pre-orders just yet, which is good for me since I get paid Friday and am currently broke.

That said, if they do sell out, this isn't an exclusive model. Walmart, Best Buy, Toys R Us, and Target are almost certainly going to get some stock in, and I plan to be at Walmart as soon as the clock strikes midnight on that Thursday night/Friday morning. I am lucky enough to live in a fairly... how do you put this... "redneck" part of the country, so I should one way or another be able to get my hands on one. My wife deserves it. She never asks for anything, but she is so excited for this 3DS. I HAVE to get one.



DragonbornRito commented on Mega Man Felyne Armour Makes Monster Hunter 4 ...:


No, seriously. I can't find any reason to complain about this stuff. I rather enjoy it, and if you don't want to forge that armor, you don't have to. Sure, other online players might wear it, but who are you to tell them that they can't wear what they want?



DragonbornRito commented on Tetris Ultimate Dated for 3DS, Will Cost Less ...:

Ubisoft. Not even once.

@Donjwolf Wake me up when Tetris Company realizes that Nintendo should have all publishing rights to Tetris. The 2 greatest Tetris games in history (Tetris GB and Tetris DS) released practically as Nintendo first-party titles. No one else can even hold a candle, especially Ubistank.

@YANDMAN How in the heck is this Nintendo's fault? It's Ubisoft that makes that decision. I'm tired of people blaming Nintendo because third-party devs won't bring their games to the Wii U.



DragonbornRito commented on Impending Japanese Launch Of Super Smash Bros....:

My one and only gripe (now that Jigglypuff has been confirmed as back ) is the lack of a new Donkey Kong character yet again. K. Rool or Dixie are both ripe for the picking, yet they don't get in. For a series that started Nintendo as a legitimate gaming company and one that has had 2 new entries in the past few years, I just can't help but point out the lack of love for the DKC characters...

(Also, I'm a bit disappointed that Dark Pit even gets his own slot. He's ALMOST just a palette swap. I don't see why it'd be that hard to give palette swaps their own "slightly different" moveset.)

All this said, still very much looking forward to the first week of October. (And if we get the demo tomorrow, all the better!)
