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.

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.

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!

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?



EarthboundBenjy commented on Two Castlevania Classics Confirmed for Wii U V...:

Two of my favourites. Even though they're unpopular, I really love both of these!

Also, to everyone who says that the SNEs Vampire's Kiss / Dracula XX is not worth it because Rondo of Blood exists....... why not play both? They're so different to each other they really should be considered separate games.'s like saying you don't want to play Kirby's Dreamland 3 because Kirby 64 exists.... like, why not both, for serious?



EarthboundBenjy commented on Talking Point: The Super Smash Bros. 3DS Demo ...:

soooo glad to have a Japanese 3DS.

I wonder if the JP 3DS version will be compatible with the PAL Wii U version, in regards to interconnectivity? I'll probably buy the European 3DS version on release, but it would be interesting to know whether or not I'll HAVE to in order to get everything from both games.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Pokkén Tournament's Concept Even Shocked The ...:

Putting Magikarp to one side for a moment, I think that some non-bipedial fighters would be a cool thing to have in the game. I would like to see Galvantula, for instance!

Other Pokémon I'd like to see are Ludicolo, Scrafty, Mienshao, Heliolisk, and Zangoose. All of these would make cool unique fighters.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Shigeru Miyamoto Confidently Outlines Nintendo...:

It might be interesting to note that Rhythm Paradise for DS was marketed as a "Touch! Generations" game, very much part of casual side of things, despite it being a game that definitely appeals to hardcore gamers.
A lot of this can be marketing more than actually changing the kind of games they make.



EarthboundBenjy commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:


...oh! It seems even I wasn't aware of what you were talking about. The cart I own is a GBA flash cart, on which I put the Mother 3 translated ROM. If I understand you correctly, there's actually a standalone repro cart? That's actually pretty cool, and I wouldn't mind owning one of them. :D



EarthboundBenjy commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

It's weird how you include Wario Land 1 and Yoshi's Island on the list. If you were to include these, wouldn't you also need to include Wario Land 2, 3, 4, Shake Dimension, Master of Disguise and Virtual Boy Wario Land ?
And wouldn't you need to include Yoshi's Island DS, Yoshi's New Island and Yoshi's Universal Gravitation too?
And what about Super Princess Peach, huh? :P
