Giygas_95 commented on Reminder: Grab Your Free Emboar for Pokémon ...:

I downloaded AS shortly after finishing Pokemon Y, but I haven't started it yet because I wanted to try to fill up the pokedex in Pokemon Y. I'd like to start this soon though.

@Kyosaii That's a shame because when I started out on Pokemon Y, I actually wanted a female froakie. I don't know why, but the thought of having a female Greninja just seemed kinda cool. Come to think of it, I wonder why they don't just let you choose the gender of your starter.

@Turbo857 Yeah, I think the only reason Eldin Bridge on 8 player doesn't have the bridge getting partially destroyed is that it would make the stage more cramped. Coliseum probably will still have the platforms. Love your avatar by the way. Ike is my main fighter along with Greninja.

Giygas_95 commented on Super Smash Bros. for Wii U Update 1.0.2 Adds ...:

@Turbo857 Right, I mean when the smallest (correct me if I'm wrong) stage in the game, Battlefield, can accommodate 8, I see no reason why all the others can't.

I guess each stage has to be properly programmed for 8 players. As we've seen already, a lot of the stages (like Eldin Bridge) have dynamic elements removed for that mode. I'm guessing if Coliseum gets added it'll lose the rising platforms. I like it well enough without the platforms honestly.

Giygas_95 commented on Nintendo Download: 29th January (North America):

I'll get the STEAM demo.

@BensonUii Where on earth do you get this stuff?!

@JaxonH I agree. While the first Prime is my favorite, Echoes is in a tier of its own. It plays mostly the same, but it's still so different...It's like the first Prime had a lot of natural, earthy environments, but Echoes by contrast felt almost otherworldly and ethereal. Probably due to the light and dark worlds. All three are such incredible masterpieces though, and I'm afraid we'll never see another set of games quite like them.

If this download actually included gamepad integration I'd buy it for sure, but since it doesn't I'll just stick to my physical copy.

@sub12 Let's see if the next one isn't even better! :)

I really can't say enough about that game. It's made me think more than any other, and I don't just mean it's made me think strategically. The dialogue and character interactions are so deep and well written especially when it plays songs like the one at the end of chapter 7 (as it does in places like some of the child/father conversations and the Future Past 2). And yet so much of it manages to make me actually laugh out loud. If I could only ever play one video game I think it'd be that one. Heck, it's what made want to play the other ones like Sacred Stones, Blazing Sword, and Shadow Dragon. If Radiant Dawn gets a Wii U eshop release I'll insta-buy it.

Giygas_95 commented on More Details Emerge on Xenoblade Chronicles X ...:

WOW, this game sounds massive. Maybe I could get a N3DS and Xenoblade 3D to prepare me for this...

Question: when people say Xenoblade Chronicles is a 100+ hour adventure, does that mean just the main story excluding side quests? I find it hard to believe that just the main story line could be greater than 100 hours or in X's case, 300 hours.

Still...It's not impossible. Afterall, I've put almost 420 hours into Fire Emblem Awakening...Yes, I know I'm crazy, but who cares.

The 3DS is easily their best handheld to date and in all honesty is almost their best console so far. The software library rivals and in some ways surpasses the SNES. I'll hate it when its life is over, but I hope their next handheld is even better.

And I really hope it keeps the 3D!

Giygas_95 commented on Feature: 20 Wii Games We'd Love To Download Fr...:

@Ralek85 Same here for sure. What I'd really like is an official collection of the whole series on either 3DS or Wii U...Maybe the Radiant games in HD on Wii U and the rest on 3DS.

None of that'll ever happen though more than likely...

Edit: On second thought, maybe a Wii U collection with the Radiant games along with the SNES games and then a 3DS collection with the NES, GBA, and DS ones. And what if the Wii U one had an HD version of Awakening?

Pipe dream.

Giygas_95 commented on A New Fire Emblem Game Is Marching Towards The...:

@JaxonH The ones I really want to play are the Tellius games. How I wish I could find copies of the for good prices...Ike is one of my main fighters in Smash so I'd love to play his games. As for the GBA ones, I have the one that's on Wii U now and haven't really delved into it much...I've played a lot of Sacred Stones on my 3DS though, and I've started to really enjoy it. Also have Shadow Dragon which I would say isn't quite as good as the others.

@JJtheTexan I feel your pain, and while I know it's not a perfect substitute, I'd recommend looking up Xeodrifter on the 3DS eshop if you haven't already. It's a really good 2D Metroid style game.

Holy...cow. It looks amazing. I LOVE Awakening so I won't hesitate on this.

I'll miss Awakening's cast though. It was the first Fire Emblem cast I really got to know well.

Oh, and I too just noticed the characters now have feet. Certainly not a deal breaker when they didn't in Awakening, but it was a little annoying all the same.

Giygas_95 commented on Review: F-Zero: GP Legend (Wii U eShop / Game ...:

@vaguerant I agree on so many levels. Sure MV has less content than this one, but what's there is so much better. I think most people think MV is terrible because they couldn't get a handle on the controls and difficulty. Heck, I even hated the game for a long time, but I gave it another chance for the ambassador program and I'm so glad I did. I even bought it on Wii U so I could play it on the big screen.

And frankly I'm not a fan of GPL's extra stuff anyway. Racing games don't really need a story in my opinion, and all of MV's tracks and machines feel very unique compared to those of GPL.

Also, dat Falcon Mk-II and Stingray...

@Jaunty Yes, it's unfortunate because to me, it's the only bad thing about the game. If it were just hard I wouldn't mind it, but it's so much trial and error, and if you don't do everything EXACTLY right the first time...you pretty much have to start the whole stage over in order to get more crash bombs.

Giygas_95 commented on Smash Bros. 2v2 For Glory Exploit Makes Pac-Ma...:

@MetalK9 Yeah, the problem with Wario is he can get out another motor cycle immediately though. Still, thanks for the tips. I've kind of taken a break from online play for a while, but I may need that advice some time in the future.

Also, online lag messes me up big time which is especially frustrating considering I can do extremely well offline but then do horribly online. It throws my timing way off. Can't tell if it's my connection or the other person's, but I sure wish online could be as smooth as offline.

Sorry, I guess I do sound kind of whiny...

Giygas_95 commented on Smash Bros. 2v2 For Glory Exploit Makes Pac-Ma...:

This kind of stuff just ruins online matches. This and stuff where you go against two Charizards who do nothing but his side B the whole time. Once my brother and I played against a Wario and Samus team where Samus just stood on the edge shooting projectiles while Wario road back on forth on his motor cycle. Another time on a 1 on 1 match the person I was playing was being Villager, and all they would do was cling to the side, hop up and shoot his slingshot, and then grab the side again. Stuff like that irritates the heck out of me and makes me wish people would just play the game the way its supposed to be played.

Still, it seems like you could stop them from getting together and doing it if you were fast enough.

Giygas_95 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Super Smash Bros. Game?:

Even without nostalgia glasses on, I'd have to say Melee outclasses everything else purely in terms of gameplay. To be honest, I don't think this series has ever been as good as Melee. The newest games are better than Brawl in my opinion, but nothing has surpassed Melee.

1: Melee
2: Wii U
3: 3DS
4: Brawl
5: N64

Giygas_95 commented on Poll: Which is the Best Mario Kart Game?:

My favorite is easily 7. It has some of the best tracks of the series in my opinion, plus it has ALL FOUR of my favorite courses from the Wii game. What more could I ask for?

Also, I love its rendition of Rainbow Road, and it has pretty good online multiplayer from what I've seen.

Giygas_95 commented on Reminder: The Nintendo Network Premium Promoti...:

Whelp, I'm gonna get another when I download Captain Toad. I'll need to spend just $16.80 for another one so I'll get Darksiders II on sale (considered buying it for over a year so I'll jump on it at that price). I'll find another game to get with it so I get another DDP code. Then I'm gonna use them to download Pokemon Y and Ultimate NES Remix. Pokemon Y will be my first game in that series. If I like it enough I may get Alpha Sapphire later on. Those are my Christmas download plans!

Really wish this promo would have lasted longer though. I also wish I'd taken more advantage of it, but with things like MK8 and Smash I wanted a boxed copy.

I have 1380 coins and some surveys so I might just get this...haven't been any good physical rewards in forever.

Heck, they even have extra large so I may get it! I'd need it. I'm so big you can't even grasp my true form.

Giygas_95 commented on Feature: A Year in Development - Renegade Kid:

Nice read. I'm looking forward to getting Treasurnauts and the rest of Moon Chronicles.

Also, I'm amazed they were able to get Xeodrifter out so quickly as good as it was. I suppose the short development time accounts for its brevity though.

Giygas_95 commented on Mega Man Zero Arrives Along With More Discount...:

I have the DS collection, but dogged if I'm not excited to play these on the big screen!

Also, since cyber elf upgrades in this game require a ridiculous amount of grinding to get, I'd recommend forgoing most of them for a more brutal challenge!

@Philip_J_Reed I agree. This series is probably the best in terms of overall quality due in no small part to it only having four games. Too many sequels tend to ruin things. These games are downright amazing, and I love using Zero's saber! My only real complaint is his redesigned appearance, but it's still a pretty good design on its own.

@Hero-of-WiiU Honestly, you can't go wrong, but the best ones in my opinion are:

NES: 2, 3, and 4

GB: III, IV, and V (definitely V)

SNES: X1, X2, X3 (some might argue on this one, but I love X3), and I haven't played 7 much, but it's okay from what I've seen.

GBA: All the Zero games (intense challenge but so so good. You can get the DS collection pretty cheap on Amazon when last I checked.)

Mega Man 9 and 10 are on Wii, PS3, and I think Xbox 360. They're great. 9 has just about the best chiptune soundtrack you'll ever hear. These two are quite hard as well, but that's what makes them fun!

Hope this helped!

@Billfredbobob Yeah, plus to me at least, going with Smash Wii U is just too obvious. I did the same thing last year with Super Mario 3D World and voted for Runner 2 instead because I sort of root for the underdog. I've never gotten such a huge rush out of any game like I have Runner 2.

Wii U retail: Tropical Freeze (hard choice between that and Smash, but I went for Donkey Kong).

Wii U eshop: Shovel Knight (Only played the 3DS version, but hey they're pretty much the same right? I didn't really play any of the others).

3DS retail: Smash no question about it.

3DS eshop: Hard choice between Xeodrifter and Shovel Knight, but I went with Shovel Knight for more length and content.

Overall: Tropical Freeze! The gameplay and soundtrack are polished beyond perfection!
