Why is there no "not sure if buying"?

I kinda want this game based on all its praise, and because I guess physical copies are going to become very rare and expensive, but I'd feel kinda embarrased when I get it and I'd have so much trouble convincing my parents to let me get it anyway... :$

Drawdler commented on Nintendo's Quirky amiibo Video Shows How They'...:

So they officially have the coloured blocks. Sigh. I wouldn't mind if they were clear, but the yellow support Beam under Link looks awful.
But hey, after actually playing Smash I can see myself getting some amiibo and training them for the heck of it, so maybe I'll end up with more than I intended. I'll probably avoid any with coloured support beams, though.
Mainly just want the Robin amiibo.

@rjejr But what would be the point in that? You yourself don't have levels in game.
I'd like it if amiibo could also store your custom build, but I don't see any other point to playing as the amiibo since their stat boosts have an equivalent in the form of Equipment and their level couldn't affect your gameplay. Unless the level unlocked/buffed moves, which would be dumb since you couldn't practice a fighter at full potential without their amiibo (that would be horrible for competitive if it wasn't banned and would be generally annoying in general).

Drawdler commented on Review: Disney Infinity 2.0 (Wii U):

Will you review Skylanders: Trap Team, NL? I'm very curious to see your opinion on it (I have mixed feelings, myself). I decided to continue collecting Skylanders and several favourite amiibo, but I cut down on Toys To Life purchases somewhat, not getting the entire collection of Skylanders this year.

And I hardly played it, but DI2 was so eh to me. A lot of the skill trees (main thing I wanted) feel half-baked, and the playsets just feel less fun- not that last year's were a masterpiece, but they were more interesting. Maybe DI2 just isn't for me; I don't have that much time for sandbox games any more (hardly play Minecraft these days).

@Shambo There'll be an amiibo figure for every Smash fighter, and there's about 50 of them, so I think you're wrong about there being less amiibo. :P (Maybe, in comparison to Skylanders- definitely if you add Traps to the Skylanders figure count- but not compared to DI2, unless you include Power Discs.)

This is how you reveal a surprise announcement RIGHT. Character data isn't in the game and instead they're DLC so people don't datamine and ruin the reveal. Heck, his unlockable trophy even made a lot of people give up hope because it was unlocked without playing through Classic as him.

If registering both games to CN is the only way to get him, that stupidly makes him limited ~

Drawdler commented on Video: Terrifying Giant Mii Heads Promote Hall...:

I can see how it'd be creepy if you took it at face value, but knowing that's just an actor in a costume (and seeing their strange movements), it's awesomely cheesy to Mii. :P I mean, just look at how Count Mii salutes at 0:37.

@lamco Nope. :)
@Hero-of-WiiU I like their voices in MK7 too. I'm a huge Mii fan and kinda disappointed that they're completely unusable in Smash online.

Drawdler commented on Two Pokémon Game Boy Color Titles Dated For N...:

@Grumblevolcano I don't mean adding natures/abilities/the later IV and EV systems in, I mean somehow changing how the data was stored or making a potential transfer to Gen VI program "translate" a Pokémon so it works like it would in the later gens. Like I said, pipe dream, just thought it was a cool idea if they did come to VC because you could continue using Pokémon you got from them.
I don't see an issue with savestates though. I know it's kind of hard to ignore they're there, but if someone wants to play the game like it was originally made, there wouldn't be anything stopping them from ignoring savestates.

Oh my god. Imagine if they released RBY/GSC on the eShop and changed things a bit so that you could transfer Pokémon from them to XY/ORAS. I know those games have a different IV/EV system and no abilities/natures set, so that would muck transferring, but I can dream...

@Hero-of-WiiU No, by next gen it should be higher than that because textures, models etc. will be made more complex and require even more space.

I just heard about this game and looked it up. Fell in love with how it looked and the gameplay concept... Then I heard about the dumb controls. </3

Drawdler commented on Parent Trap: Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapph...:

I'm so glad it's not just me, thinking the demo was badly made. I could go on about it but to sum it up, it offers little entertaining exclusive content, has no interesting lore and the missions are poorly paced, repetitive and unoriginal. A couple of nice references, but overall it's pretty sloppy and lazily made.

Drawdler commented on It'll be Possible to Catch All 719 Pokémon Us...:

You also have to consider version exclusives... If you just bought X and Alpha Sapphire, for example, you could not get Groudon, Zekrom, Reshiram or Lugia just using those carts. Also, if Skrelp/Clauncher and Swirlix/Spritzee are not available in ORAS you wouldn't be able to get them without trading or something.

Of course there's starters and Pokémon you need to choose between too, but you can always reset your cart for those (tedious as it may be, it'd still be possible to get them all, just with the two carts).

Drawdler commented on Guide: How to Catch a Pokémon Omega Ruby & Al...:

@MadAdam81 demo spoilers According to Serebii, after replaying the demo 10 times, you won't get anything for replaying it. If you replay it, you can earn some Poké Balls and Heart Scales to transfer to ORAS, but you can't catch/recieve any more special Pokémon.

I got a code from Club Nintendo! Wasn't expecting that. :)

The demo actually made me less excited for the game. It's not very well made. I like the BuzzNav, though.

I hate the code BS they've been doing lately. It just makes stuff more limited- a lot more annoying than doing stuff over Wi-Fi.

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

Doubt it will be the true ultimate Tetris experience over Tetris DS.

Whether that points to limited physical retail stock is will be interesting to see, but it's not often that the download version deliberately undercuts the physical retail equivalent, though Nintendo did something similar with its standalone limited edition boxed version of New Super Luigi U; that was originally DLC, however.

This will sound nitpicky as heck, but I think this sentence has some odd formatting.

Disappointed in the lack of discussion on how this works with Smash

Will get the XL. I've considered the small one many times, but the faceplates aren't a long-lasting incentive and I couldn't get used to the smaller screens again.

@babyguess I suspect it has something to do with the auto brightness changer (which always seemed like a stupid feature to me).

I'm using Mario Stamped Felt/Branded Wood and Zelda: 2 Worlds. I think I prefer how the Mario themes look, but the sound effects on the Zelda one are much cooler.
Default Blue actually goes pretty decent with my Blue XL, so I might use that once in a while.

@IceClimbers Didn't something similar happen with the Wii? It had a couple years of nothing notable, then during the last one, a couple of amazing games.
It seems like nothing is happening next year for the 3DS. Hope I'm wrong and the N3DS renews developer interest a little, or something.

Drawdler commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS Games of 2014 - Fall ...:

Smash 3DS is the only game which impressed me this year on handheld or home console. What a disappointing year.

I'm looking forward to NES Remix and Shovel Knight, but not that much.

I'm getting Pokémon, but X and Y were kind of disappointing, and I'm expecting ORAS to inherit some of their bigger problems. I'm interested in them as a nostalgic romp, but I got bored of XY's online a while ago and I think I'll hardly touch ORAS once I beat it, unless the single player postgame is much better.

@rjejr I know you're suggesting it because it's big and not nessicarily for its merit, but Trap Team 3DS is okay. The first time around it's fairly entertaining, but like Giants/SWAP Force on the 3DS, it has so many cutscenes you're forced to watch when you want to replay it and those really bog it down, plus there are more slow puzzles. The controls feel just as sluggish. None of the puzzles or platforming sections are memorable and neither is the combat (with the latter, it's partly because of the controls, which can make fighting uncomfortable and slow).
NWR have a good review I largely agree with. It's not even the best option for on-the-go Skylanders, because the tablet edition of the full game is available.
I'd say it's better than SF 3DS, but I wouldn't recommend it much more than that game. Get it if you already like Skylanders and want another story to go through- otherwise, you can safely skip it.

Drawdler commented on Guide: How to Unlock the Full Roster in Super ...:

@dkxcalibur I've been using:

L- Shield
R-Grab
X- Special attack
Y-Jab attack
B/A- Jump
Tap-Jump OFF

Smash attacks are still really awkward to execute, but I've found this MUCH better than the default control scheme.
Depending on how often you shield/grab, you may want to switch them with this control scheme. I find it more natural to tap L and shield more.
