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

My one and only gripe (now that Jigglypuff has been confirmed as back :D) 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!)



DragonbornRito commented on Video: This is a Video Game:

@ikki5 Whoa, I sold a copy recently for $25ish, and I've seen copies at the local flea market for $35-40. Did I miss a massive spike?

EDIT: WOW, I missed a massive spike. I mean, I sold this copy about a year ago for half of what I could've gotten now... I did find a few $50 listings (shipped) though.



DragonbornRito commented on Feature: The History of Super Smash Bros.:

@Jazzer94 Yes and no. I think the balance is pretty spot on. If you give Smash too competitive of a mindset, casual Smash fans are less likely to have fun. Many of my Smash friends got pretty alienated from Melee once certain people in our group could pull off the wavedashing and other high-skill moves (and would use them liberally). I think the death of wavedashing and other "techniques" along those lines is a good thing, because it evens the field a bit more. Granted, tripping wasn't the way to go, but it was a noble effort.

I think trying to appeal Smash to the "EVO scene" only would be disastrous for the potential sales, because that community is almost assuredly going to jump on the new Smash for at least a little while anyways. They're always looking for new and good fighters. I'm almost certain this will receive much better competitive reception than Brawl too, considering what we've seen from the pre-release tournaments so far and the word of mouth of Smash pros like HB and ZeRo. (They've said it's not as tight as Melee, yes, but I think that's a good thing to be honest. My opinion there, I guess.)



DragonbornRito commented on Mario Kart 8 DLC Coming In November, Features ...:

LINK! LINK! LINK! LINK! LINK! OH MY YES! This is amazing! I don't care what any of you naysayers say. You won't nay me away! It's an already amazing game, getting even more amazing! Yes, I want better battle mode too, but seriously. This is stupendously awesome!



DragonbornRito commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

@Yorumi Sorry if I came off as trying to ignore the debate at hand by calling out SJWs. I did make a statement though, my opinion on the matter, and my feelings about the so called SJWs are indeed my own. I honestly think women as a whole have been oversexualised, but people only seem to to. get upset when a fictional character becomes too sexualized.



DragonbornRito commented on Talking Point: A History of the Sexualisation ...:

The amount of modesty in your average female these days is as low as it has ever been. Yet we complain about the sexualisation of a fictional video game character. One that has still been treated fairly modestly compared to what you see at the average night club or beach. I think we have a bigger issue...

Not saying there are not modest women these days, but oversexualisation of the female gender as whole has been reaching new heights every year in just about every medium out there. (Especially TV and music.) SJWs need to find real issues to worry about. Like covering up those women that I was talking about.



DragonbornRito commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (North America):

@argh4430 It's just the one thing that I've been hoping for to come over here since it came out in Europe. Even just a "We're working on it" or "It's on its way" would be awesome.

I don't understand the way you put that. Felt like some venom in those words. Like I'm part of a plague or something. It was a tongue-in-cheek internet comment with tongue-in-cheek internet wording. I've never not been satisfied being a Nintendo fan. Oh well, maybe you didn't mean much by it and I'm the one reading too much into it. XD Wouldn't be the first time. Thank you, internet!



DragonbornRito commented on Nintendo Goes Download-Only With The 2014 Club...:

I'm kinda both ways here. I've always been happy with my Club Nintendo Elite Rewards (MM Soundtrack, Giant Mario Bros. Figurine, Deluxe Mario Pin Set, etc.). But they've all eventually ended up doing the same thing. Sitting on a shelf in my house to look at once in a blue moon.

I will most certainly be able to enjoy my reward this year: Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D. I never got to finish the Wii version, and this will let me take it on the go. I just finished Tropical Freeze, and I've been hankering to play some more DKCR. I think it would've been nicer had they gave some games that were on par with the MK8 promo, but I'm happy with what I got.



DragonbornRito commented on EA Explains Why It's Abandoning Dedicated Hand...:

It's so dumb too. Madden 13 for Vita was a legitimate console-style Madden game on the go. It had a few flaws, but the system was still new to them. I figured by the time Madden 25 rolled around, they'd have ironed out the bugs. Then they go: "We're only releasing on HURRDDCOORRE SISSTEMS liek teh 360, PS3, Xbone, and PS4! Who gives a crap about Nintendo, or handhelds for that matter? Oh I know, let's release a horrible freemium version of Madden on tablets that looks like it came out on the N64!"

Go play in traffic, EA.



DragonbornRito commented on Review: How to Train Your Dragon 2 (Wii U):

Hey, a kid's movie! You know what kids like? VIDEO GAMES. Let's make one about this movie in a shameless cash grab effort! Budget? Eh, a couple thousand bucks and a one-month production period ought to cut it. Graphics? Gameplay? Pffffttttt...



DragonbornRito commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

Luigi Death Stare won E3.

No, but seriously, I'm not trying to show bias here when I say Nintendo won as far as the console devs go. Last year, they got last place. Only the most blind of fanboys would disagree. This year, they got some unexpected steam from fairly lackluster showings by Sony and MS and rode that to the moon and back. Hit after hit after hit. There was not a single game shown during the Digital Event that I don't want. As a matter of fact, I NEED to find a copy Xenoblade Chronicles now. XCX looks so good.

But seriously, here's my list of newly revealed games I'd want from each showing (that are exclusives, that is; if they're coming to PC, I'm getting them on PC):

Uncharted 4 (One of the only first-party non-Nintendo series I enjoy.)
Bloodborne (From Software, what can I say?)
and that's seriously it.

Scalebound (Although it just looks like Platinum's Monster Hunter clone.)
and that's all. Ori and the Blind Forest, as good as it looks, will be coming to PC.

Splatoon (Quite possibly the winner of "Game I Never Knew I Wanted But Now I Want the Most")
Mario Maker (Community-created Mario levels on a daily basis? Yes please!)
Fantasy Life (Was skeptical at first, but now a day-one buy)
Captain Toad (I actually said "I'd play an entire game of this" during SM3DW)
Mario Party 10 (Playing as Bowser is fun? #Exactly!)
Yoshi's Wooly World (Looks like an amazing co-op game)
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse (More Canvas Curse, awesome)
Zelda U (No explanation needed)



DragonbornRito commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

@blaze8937 You can always hook up a 360 controller to it and play it just like you would've on an Xbox. :D Just a lot prettier and with mods.

Like I said, not trying to steer you away from a PS4 if you really want one for keeping your gaming community alive. But it sure is fun over in PC Land too. >:D



DragonbornRito commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

@ejamer They said Nielsen did the ratings, which is just a polling company. I've participated in one of their studies (TV-related) and it was quite weird. Just write down everything you watch for a week then send it in and we'll send a check for $10. (A CHECK for $10.. Without a bank account, I couldn't get that thing cashed for less than a $10 fee.) Either way, they survey some people and release statistics based on those surveys. Many companies (like Sony, it seems) take those ratings as gospel. I don't know why. I'd trust my own statistics more than Nielsen's.



DragonbornRito commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

@blaze8937 Okay, that's what I was wondering. Like I said, I'm not trying to condemn you or anything. I just thought money was an issue and felt like I should address that it shouldn't be. I can't blame you for wanting to keep your gaming group intact or the difficulty in learning keyboard/mouse when you've been console your whole life. (It took me a while to get used to it, but now I love it. I still use a controller for couch PC gaming though.)



DragonbornRito commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

@blaze8937 Not to sound like one of those "annoying" PC Master Race people (I consider myself a part of the PC Master Race on reddit, but not the kind that spend all day trolling console pages and whatnot just to get a kick out of it), but if you're going to drop the $400 for a PS4, you can afford a gaming PC that will beat the PS4. All for the price of a PS4, a second controller, and one game. If you still want one for the exclusives, go ahead. But don't let price keep you from getting a gaming PC when the alternative is a pricey piece of hardware like the PS4.



DragonbornRito commented on Nintendo Download: 12th June (North America):

@Mus1cLov3r I know, I wish they'd give GBA an official release on 3DS... It works perfectly! I was lucky enough to be an early adopter, but plenty of other people don't have the same pleasure. When it comes right down to it though, I wouldn't count that when saying you have them all, since very few people out of the current owners are Ambassadors. You had to get a 3DS within the first 4 or 5 months of its release, I think. I did have it a little easy though. Getting LoZ and AoL for free too. I picked up OoA and OoS when they were running that promo (buy one, get one half off or something).

@astros75 Thanks! I can't wait till I get my check this weekend to get it. :D
