Giygas_95 commented on Review: Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Do...:

Water World and Rockface Rumble really are the best songs in this game. Hope the DKC games get released on the Wii U over here in North America soon.

Personally, though, as far as actual level design goes, I'd have to say that this is the hardest of the bunch. It's more forgiving than the first two as far as saving your progress is concerned though.

Giygas_95 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U GameCube Controlle...:

I was going to pre-order one of these since my brother likes to play with a Gamecube controller, but he said he's gotten used to the classic controller. I may let him use the gamepad while I use my 3DS. I tried using the 3DS on the Wii U version, and it worked surprisingly well!

I may get an Ike amiibo at some point, but that's just a maybe. I may even get the other Fire Emblem amiibos, but given the quality of the some of the actual production models we've seen so far, I'm not so sure...

Giygas_95 commented on Lucina from Fire Emblem: Awakening Gets Immort...:

I've been playing this game a lot lately. A little off topic, but my play time is around 290 hours, and my average play time is about 1 hour and 50 minutes. Needless to say,...I can't get enough of it. On topic, nice figure, but her pose is a little boring. Pass.

"Custom characters can be copied in either direction between Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U, so that perfect Pikachu build never has to be benched."

Yeeeeessss! I can transfer my custom Ike! I really can't wait to play the game! Already have it pre-ordered.

@RogueBologna Actually, the longest review on this site is for Wii Sports Resort. I think it's eight pages?

Giygas_95 commented on Sony: PS Vita Is Better Than 3DS And The Wii B...:

Okay. I wanted a Vita, but there wasn't (and still isn't) enough to convince me to get one. I really would like one. It's a neat system, but there just isn't enough support for it. That's the problem I see with the Vita. When the consumer (me for instance) wants a product, but upon examining it finds that it's not worth their time or money, there's sort of a problem with the product. On the other hand, he didn't exactly say that the Vita was better than the 3DS. He just listed some examples and then said "I think the Vita is the best."

In my opinion though? Fire Emblem Awakening. Trump card.

Giygas_95 commented on Review: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS):

There are games that I love...and then there is Fire Emblem Awakening.

I've put about 230 hours into this game so far with no signs of slowing down in site. It would probably be a lot more, but I got this game like a year after launch.

Giygas_95 commented on Feature: These Are The Mario Kart 8 DLC Packs ...:

These...are kind of terrible ideas in my opinion. Okay, so Link and Animal Crossing are in, but any more crossovers, and I'd have to draw the line. It's still Mario Kart after all. I realize this was just for fun, but still...

And as for Epona, how would you even make that work with underwater and anti-gravity sections? Not to mention hang gliding sections...:p

Personally, I really doubt there's gonna be more DLC after May though.

Giygas_95 commented on The Man Behind Sega's Wonder Boy Series Hates ...:

I can agree at least. The controls in Super Mario Bros. games have improved a lot over the years. The first one feels very stiff and sluggish to me.

I feel this game often gets a free pass and plenty of praise because of its historical significance. Personally, I don't find it very much fun, and I think it's been improved upon by just about every Mario game since. Especially SMB3.

@Sherman Exactly.

Giygas_95 commented on Feature: Does Super Smash Bros. Wii U's Smash ...:

@JaxonH Finally someone else that likes single player Smash Run! I love playing it as Ike. I do wish you could extend the maze time and fight time though, and maybe even assign different music tracks to different characters. I honestly don't get why everyone hates the mode though. It's meant to be enjoyed in quick bursts. Just one or two runs every now and then.

@SockoMario Yet when it comes out, I'm sure it'll be nothing but "OMG, this game is AMAAAAAAZZZZZING!"

Personally, I'm gonna pre-order this game pretty soon. I was gonna download it to take advantage of the deluxe promo, but in the long run, I'll be more happy to have the box. Plus I have the boxes of Melee, Brawl, and 3DS so I kinda want this one too.

Giygas_95 commented on Feature: Does Super Smash Bros. Wii U's Smash ...:

@TheAceofMystery No kidding.

I buy every Smash game primarily for single player, and I'm never disappointed. I do love some multiplayer with my brother when he comes home on weekends, but I mostly play by myself (don't have anyone else to play with), and I always have fun.

And I AM looking forward to Smash Tour. It looks fun and lighthearted, much in contrast to the repetitive (by virtue of being the exact same every single time except for the Triforce changing locations in the Temple level), disjointed adventure mode in Melee and the AWFUL and equally repetitive and disjointed slog known as the Subspace Emissary.

Seriously, where did all the hype go all of a sudden? It seems like almost everyone here is upset about the single player component lacking. Heck, most of the game is playable in single OR multi-player. That includes classic, all-stars, stadium modes, Smash, Smash Tour, and event matches.

I think we're definitely going to be seeing this one becoming an instant classic, and we'll probably remember it as one of the best. At least it won't be as slow as Brawl.

@abbyhitter Well perhaps try it before dismissing it...

Giygas_95 commented on Awesome Fan Album Metroid Cinematica Released ...:

@SamoStudios Yeah, recently I've found a whole bevy of secrets in that game that I never knew about before. Ones such as the reserve tank in Maridia, some secrets in Lower Norfair (Including a power bomb I could see but couldn't reach) and a few others. I hope I keep finding things like that for a while!

Giygas_95 commented on Feature: Nintendo Life's Horrifying Halloween ...:

Speaking of this, it's been a very long time since we last saw WGAYPTW (what games are you playing this weekend).

I'll be playing Smash and lotsa Fire Emblem Awakening. I don't think I've ever been as attached to a game as I am with Awakening.

@midnafanboy I dunno, what do you suppose a middle aged or elderly individual would think if, say, a college aged teenager or adult came trick or treating?

Well, I wouldn't want to be the one to find out at least...
