I'm an obsessive game collector, and I tend to want to know everything about the games I play. I thrive on useless trivia. :P My top favourite series is Castlevania.

EarthboundBenjy commented on Fans Demonstrate Changes From Sonic Boom: Rise...:

is it possible to remove patches on Wii U? and if so, will it affect save data?

I ask, because on you can delete patches on 3DS.
I tried deleting the Smash Bros 3DS update because I wanted to play with someone who didn't have the patch, but it said "couldn't find update data, would you like to play without your save data?"... I obviously said no. It's very scary that all of my Smash data could have been wiped if I had said 'yes' to that prompt. But it meant that, not only could I not play Smash with the other DS, I also now couldn't even open the software until I got home and redownloaded the patch. :/

In this game, the countries of Bern and Ostia were localised as Biran and Ositia for the EUR version, except during map scenes, it still uses the old names. It's weird and confusing, but if you know that it does this, you can ignore it and enjoy the story.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Little Mac's amiibo Appears to Have Actually B...:

on 12th December 2014, I walked into a GAME shop in Kingston, London, and I saw a few Little Mac amiibos. On that day, though, I bought Captain Falcon instead. It was my first amiibo purchase.

When I returned to the very same GAME next week, they literally only had Pikachu, Link and Samus and no-one else.

I went there two days ago, and they had like twelve Donkey Kong amiibos, three Peaches and a single Samus.

Little Mac must have gotten an incredibly small run.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Matters Of Import: Collectible Badge Centre Br...:

It counts as a new day when it becomes 4 am in Japan,which is 7 pm in the UK. They gave me two free tries as a "Christmas present", and I wasted both of them by failing to pick up a rather attractive Diddy Kong badge. Then in Practise mode, I got all but one of the practise badges, but none of them gave me any more free tries. Oh. That's that then.

I'm still not spending any real money on this, but I'm going to try for that Diddy Kong badge every day of my life until I get it.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Review: Pokémon Pinball: Ruby & Sapphire (Wii...:

I had the GBA cartridge, which seemed to delete my Pokédex data sporadically. I don't think it was a save battery issue, because there were times where it deleted my Pokédex, but kept my suspended game. I eventually gave up trying to complete this game because it kept happening.
I think it was triggered by trying to switch from GBA to GameCube GB Player while there was a game suspended. This game actually checks for the GB Player because it supports the rumble feature of GCN controllers, so maybe there was some glitchy code during the check. Who knows.

I just distinctly remember having an Electrode in my Pokédex with no Voltorb, which should never be possible in this game... my suspended file was during an "evolution" round, but it had deleted records of everything caught before hand.

I still feel kind of wary about playing this game. I really don't know if it was just my copy or if the game is kinda glitchy.

So weird.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Masahiro Sakurai Admits That Super Smash Bros....:

I would be okay with no more Smash Bros games if we got the majority of the cut characters as DLC in the future, and some updates to fix some of the problems in this game, such as the inability to separate custom moves from custom equipment without just "trusting" your opponent didn't put any equips on...among other things.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Masahiro Sakurai Explains Why Mewtwo Isn't Pai...:

I sure hope that you can get Mewtwo if you don't have both versions by paying though. In a household of two or more Smashers, there will be more 3DSes than Wii Us. How will it work so that we can get Mewtwo unlocked on every Smash-playing device?



EarthboundBenjy commented on Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS Update 1.0....:

Bowser-suicide with both players at one stock results in Bowser dying FIRST!
Pac-Man can no longer launch the hydrant in a single back-air!
Pikachu's Thunder now only fills one layer of Mr G&W's bucket!
Wario's crazy momentum is fixed! Yoshi's ledge-warping and Olimar's down-smash glitch are both fixed!

These are the changes I have personally noticed.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Mario Kart: Super Circuit is Racing Onto The W...:

Multiplayer will obviously not work. I don't see why they couldn't put two GBA screens side by side and emulate a link cable between them (does anyone remember the unlockable Game Gear games in Sonic Adventure DX that did this fine?) ... but Nintendo will probably never do this for whatever reason. Who knows.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Anouma Confirms Majora's Mask 3D Has Been In D...:

it's being changed to make it easier for people who didn't like the original? Perhaps the owl statues let you straight-up save your game this time, rather than just suspend. I can't think of any other changes they could make that wouldn't substantially mess with the game..



EarthboundBenjy commented on Poll: Nintendo Minute Debate - Is Super Mario ...:

No option for New Super Mario Bros. 2, everybody's unquestionably favourite game? ;)

But seriously, I think Mario World is more influential. It's THE game for snes, and really evolved on the concepts introduced in SMB3 while also coming up with its own ideas which have become series staples, such as ghost houses, Yoshi, and super-secret bonus worlds!



EarthboundBenjy commented on Game Freak Confirms That The Pokémon Stadium ...:

The purpose is for it do be on a big TV screen with an announcer voice. To have different battle modes, win battle credits to spend on items to send back to your game. To have "rental" teams so you can have battles with unfamilliar Pokémon in order to try new strategies out.

There are lots of features of the Stadium games that are not in the regular handheld games.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Junichi Masuda Talks Pokémon Snap and Listeni...:

Snap was more of an anime game than part of the game series. I guess the way you tell is whether or not it uses the game cries or if they say their own name like in the anime.

Spinoffs like Ranger or Pinball use the game cries, while spinoffs like Snap and Channel (and Smash Bros) use their anime cries.'s an interesting distinction, huh.

I would like to see a Gamepad-centric Snap game with controls like Pikmin 3's camera. ...and Miiverse sharing of course. If there was also a non-rails mode as well, that would be great too!



EarthboundBenjy commented on Super Smash Bros. Website Introduces amiibo De...:

Does it level up for the purpose of making you have to grind it, or does it level up because it wants you to grow it in a specific way?

I don't really understand how it will even work. Is one Level 50 Mario Amiibo with default customs identical to any other level 50 Mario Amiibo with default customs? Or do they differ depending on the playstyle you were using against it during its level up process?
