Kickin donkey.

Male, 19, United Kingdom

Well, I'm studying Creative Technologies in University and I intend to make some amazing tech/gaming innovations someday. I love gaming and watching movies. Yeah, not much to tell. I'm not that exciting unless you're willing to get to know me, lol

Findonovan95 commented on Sonic Boom: Rise Of Lyric Speeds To Earlier Re...:'s not being delayed?'s gonna come out earlier? On the Wii U...? Wow, lol That's actually really surprising for a change. I's not a game I'm interested in but it certainly is cool to see it's not being delayed or cancelled.



Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

Got a 3DS and an XL and now this is announced. I have such mixed emotions. I'm just not sure whether to be angry or happy about this. I just can't get it and that really annoys me. I simply can't justify paying up for it when I already have two consoles that do the same thing.



Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: The Argument For And Against Re...:

I guess they can be useful in certain situations. I used to pirate games but I stopped a long time ago when I started to get enough money to buy the games I wanted. I think these devices are a good way of preserving the history of our hobby though. It can really help to keep things alive in ther etro scene and maybe even introduce some of the younger audiences to the way games used to be. That's just my personal opinion though.



Findonovan95 commented on Nintendo Has Nothing to Say About Recent Smash...:

It looks like there's a lot of pain in that picture, lol
I'm so hyed for smash bros. I'm really hoping I have enough to get it for the 3DS and Wii U but I probably won't be able to.

As it comes closer to the release date I'm finding it harder to decide which one to get. Probably Wii U though so I can get some friends around for some tournaments when I get back to uni, lol



Findonovan95 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Super Mario Platformer?:

I was tied between Super Mario World, Galaxy 2 and Sunshine but I voted for galaxy 2 because I loved what a seemingly unique approach it took and it just felt so awesome to play.

I used to have all those games at one point in time. Needless to say, I wish I still did. I loved everything about those games because they were all fun to play, had excellent soundtracks and felt very unique. So much nostalgia, lol XD



Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

I think another reasons it falls behind is because the games also take SO LONG to be released. And if I'm being honest, I'm really not interested in anything that's been released apart from the zelda games.

Ranting ahead...

Give me Donkey Kong 64, Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie, Conkurs Bad Fur Day, etc. and I'll literally cry with hapiness as I hand over my money.

...Oh wait...just forget it. I give up. I realize now that I'll never see either a remake, re-release or another Donkey Kong game in the 64 style again. Sorry for the rant. :/



Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: A Virtual Console Revival Could...:

The VC definitely needs some sort of price restructuring. In my opinion nothing should be over £9.99. Heck, even that seems steep. Can't see it happening though. So much missed potential.

On another note...
I'll always be happy if the prices are converted for each currency. (So everyone pays the same amount.) Just because I'm living in the UK doesn't mean I'm rich. A lot of companies don't seem to understand that.



Findonovan95 commented on Video: Hyperkin RetroN 5 Review - King Of The ...:

As an American I only ever heard it pronounced "Snez". Then I moved to Northern Ireland and guess what...everyone calls it a "snez" here too.

I honestly don't understand how it could be considered easier or better to say something with four syllables over something with one, lol



Findonovan95 commented on Poll: Is Online Co-Op a Major Miss in Hyrule W...:

If my friends didn't all live so far away from me I really wouldn't mind, but they do live far away and I can't play local co-op with them. However, during term-time they'll be my neighbors so it won't be that bad I guess. I might be able to get my sister or my dad to play the game with me if it really comes down to it anyways. Basically, I personally don't mind the lack of online co-op but I do feel it's something that should be/have been implemented.



Findonovan95 commented on Sainsbury's Reduces Mario Kart 8 Wii U Bundle ...:

Man, I remember when consoles were £250. Good to see the price so low now. On the other hand though; the price of games has skyrocketed over the years.

You used to be able to get games for about £30 new and now they're around £50-£60 and that's not even special editions.



Findonovan95 commented on Nintendo Reports Losses for Q1 of Financial Ye...:

If I were to combine the amount of games I own for the 3DS and Wii U it would probably be less than what I've owned for any single console ever.

Needless to say I will be very annoyed if they announce another console within the next few years.

However; there have been a lot of announcements lately for both consoles and more and more people have boarded the hype train (myself included) so things could seriously pick up over the next two years.

Just for clarity; I own around ~60 games per console. 3DS and Wii U though would be somewhere around ~30.



Findonovan95 commented on Nintendo Download: 31st July (Europe):

What I think of when I see trine on sale now:
"DFS Sale Now on! Hurry! Ends soon!"
That poopsiedoodle DFS sale just keeps on going, lol

I'm not really interested in anything this week. I got Pullblocks World for the discounted price yesterday, but that's it.



Findonovan95 commented on 3DS System Update 8.1.0-18 is Now Live:

Oh man; gotta love that stability. I prefer stability over new and exciting features(sarcasm).

Don't get me wrong; I do coding so I know how important stability is, I just want to see some cool new stuff added. :(



Findonovan95 commented on Rare Co-Founder Tim Stamper Is Back In The Gam...:

This is something that I'm not sure how to feel about. I guess it's cool? Mobile games - something I never play. Don't get me wrong; I've downloaded and tried tons of mobile games over the years, but I have yet to get one that truly captures my attention and brings me away from my home/handheld consoles.

Still, I'll put my faith into them and hope that they produce something as quality as Donkey Kong 64 or Banjo-Kazooie/tooie. I never was a fan of Donkey Kong Country if I'm being honest; I'm not sure why.



Findonovan95 commented on Screenshots Disabled in Comic Workshop Miivers...:

With all this moderation and lack of freedom it's hard to use Miiverse. Every time I'm thinking of posting something, I think..."Hm...maybe I shouldn't include the word 'poopsiedoodle', I could get banned." or something similar to that; you get the point.

As someone else pointed out, there are parental options for a reason; it's unfair to the rest of the community for this functionality to be banned because parents aren't using the provided functionality and then are complaining.

"But someone posted a picture of their privates!" THEN BAN THAT PERSON! Don't ruin the experience for everyone just because of one/a few bad apples Nintendo.



Findonovan95 commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

@ToxieDogg wow, I never thought about that. That would be a shame.

On another note; you mentioning internet from a young age made me laugh. I figure you were talking about a younger age group than me but I'm 19 and I didn't have internet access until about 2007 or so, lol

It's strange to think about how easy it all is to access, even to me who is supposed to be the one leading us into the next generation or whatever my lecturer says. XD



Findonovan95 commented on Video: You Really Don't Want To Know What Kids...:

I guess I wasn't into the new generation stuff at the time. I remember my first game being Pokémon Silver; well if you don't count me playing my sisters version of Pokémon Crystal.

My mom said it was because she was afraid of me wrecking the more modern stuff. Hahaha, she knew the old gameboy and nes were built to last. XD

I've vowed that if I ever have a kid, they're going to play through all the generations I did to get to the modern games, lol I'd want them to have an appreciation for the past before enjoying the present, and looking to the future.



Findonovan95 commented on Soapbox: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Lo...:

Man, I love this game. It's a really good time-waster. I've pumped a good few hours into it now. I think it's their reactions/expressions that make me laugh so hard. Amazing.

@DestinyMan you can you change the pronunciation of the names by using the little audio icon. Just spell the name normally, then click that icon and spell it how you want it to be pronounced. Works great for me.



Findonovan95 commented on Shigeru Miyamoto States There Are "A Few" Zeld...:

What the poopsiedoodle is everyone talking about "zelda is becoming cod/mario"? No it's not, lol How do you even get to these really over-dramatic conclusions?

Never the less; I look forward to a new game in the series for the 3DS, and the Wii U zelda reveal brought tears to my eyes, lol Looks amazing. Hyrule Warriors being a spin-off I didn't think much of it but the more I see of it, the more I begin to like the look of it.

That's two main games, one for each console and a spin-off. They're coming out sometime within the next year/few years; I honestly don't think that's a lot. They also seem to be putting more thought and effort into these games than ever before with the numerous statements about how they want to revolutionize the series, etc. My body is ready.



Findonovan95 commented on Talking Point: Keeping It Simple Helped Ninten...:

I'll be honest and say that I wasn't that impressed by Splatoon and to an extent, I'm still not that impressed. However, I do see how it could become a great game. It was unexpected and I presume that as I see more of it I'll begin to like it more. (I didn't watch all the tree house stuff btw)

On another note; the peek we got of Zelda U looked absolutely amazing and I am seriously hyped for it and pretty much every other game they announced, lol
