Giygas_95 commented on Poll: Vote For Your Ten Must-Play Games On Nin...:

I immediately went for Fire Emblem Awakening. Heck, that game has sucked up just over 600 hours of my time, and I'm not finished with it yet (I have finished the actual story, but I just keep replaying it and getting support conversations).
Also (with remakes excluded for ease of choosing my ten):
Bravely Default (haven't played much of it yet, but I can tell it's gonna be good)
New Leaf
Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon
Mario and Luigi Dream Team
A Link Between Worlds
Pokemon Y
Smash Bros. 3DS (obviously)

I almost put Ghost Recon Shadow Wars in here, but it doesn't quite stand up to the likes of these other games. It's very good though!
Also, and this is just me, but I would exclude remakes from this poll.

@Mogster Is that a download only title? The article says they'll do a poll for download only games at a later date.

@Octane And I agree with you. I just feel they could have toned her reaction down a bit. Maybe left it at a gasp and then let that be it, but I still enjoyed the game. In a way though, I feel silly for contributing to the off-topicness of this thread...:P



Giygas_95 commented on Feature: The Legend of Zelda on Wii U - What D...:

I could use this...and Xenoblade X. It seems like I haven't had a good new Wii U game since Smash (Not interested in Mario Party 10 or Kirby. Thank goodness for Fire Emblem.)

@abbyhitter "Other M and Fusion are my favorite Metroid games." You know, it's funny how much alike the two games really are and yet people usually despise Other M much more. If you think about it, both are more linear than past installments, relying more on action and tension than isolation and exploration. Plus, you're taking orders from someone in both (which for some reason is considered sexist when it occurs in Other M but not when it occurs in Fusion or even Corruption). And let's not forget they both take place on a Galactic Federation biological research vessel.

I agree that some mistakes were made with Other M (I can SORT OF justify the Ridley scene (Samus having PTSD because she thought she had finally killed Ridley only to have him come back) but it's still kind of messed up in my opinion. Should have just blasted him as soon as he appeared. Also she broods over the past a lot which is a bit annoying). It's still one of my favorites too though. If they had just left that scene out, I think it might not get the level of criticism it does.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Xenoblade Chronicles 3D (New Nintendo ...:

Hmmm, sounds amazing! This'll be a nice warm up for X, and since I've never played the original, I can't wait to for it. Playing games like these for the first time is always an amazing experience. It's the kind of game you wish you could experience for the first time over and over again.

Question: Anybody know where you can actually buy a New 3DS XL in the States? I haven't seen any, and stupid Amazon still isn't selling Nintendo's consoles...



Giygas_95 commented on Nintendo Download: 19th March (North America):

I'm playing nothing but Fire Emblem whenever I have free time whether it be Awakening, Blazing Sword, or Sacred Stones so nothing for me this week. Actually, I haven't bought any new games in a while. I've only been checking these updates out of curiosity before going back to Fire Emblem.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (Wii U ...:

You know, this game does a hard difficulty the right way. You can still get through it with careful use of your units and without really even using Seth at all. Awakening on the other hand? Those opening missions on lunatic/classic pretty much force Frederick on you.

@EvisceratorX Same story here. I was bored with this at first but got Awakening anyway. Now I'm a big Fire Emblem fan.

Also, who besides me saves two separate files at the split in this game? I like to alternate between the two paths after every mission.



Giygas_95 commented on Video: Watch As A Gaggle Of Oldies Are Exposed...:

"Because I'm very competitive by spirit...and I cheat a lot." That made me chuckle!

Speaking of Mario Kart 8, I wonder how much longer it'll be before we hear some more details on the next DLC pack. I'm guessing mid-to late April or early May.



Giygas_95 commented on Yacht Club Games Announces Free Shovel Knight:...:

I've been waiting forever for information about this. I know there's also supposed to be one for King Knight and Specter Knight. Can't wait to play Specter Knight.

Although I was a little disappointed that Polar Knight isn't getting his own DLC, but at least he'll be playable in the boss rush mode.



Giygas_95 commented on Majora’s Mask 3D Patch Irons out Honey & Dar...:

If any of these patches affect the Fierce Diety's mask anywhere glitch, I'm not downloading. The game plays fine for me, and Fierce Diety's mask already should have been usable anywhere. I mean I would think if it were prohibited anywhere it'd be IN boss rooms not out of them.



Giygas_95 commented on Feature: Five Nintendo 64 Games We'd Love to P...:


pant pant Sorry I just had to get that out of my system. Thing is, I've been saying how much I wish that game would happen lately, and when I saw this article I immediately thought of it again just before seeing that the thumbnail picture was of F-Zero X.

Come on, Nintendo, we need some F-Zero on the 3DS and Wii U! Aside from just the original and Maximum Velocity of course...



Giygas_95 commented on You'd Better Get a Bigger Micro-SDHC Card for ...:

I have about 60,000 blocks open on my 32 gb sd card so I should be okay with this. I'm also gonna download the new Fire Emblem at some point so I hope I don't end up using up all of my space before the end of the system's life!



Giygas_95 commented on Soapbox: Portable Gaming Forges a Special Rela...:

My first handheld was a GBC. Well it was really my brother's. My REAL first handheld was a GBA, and I've been in love with Nintendo's handhelds ever since. There's something so fun and unique about them. The 3DS is indisputably my favorite handheld of all time, heck my favorite console ever. Its game library rivals and I would argue exceeds that of the SNES.

There can be no doubt. Nintendo may not rule the home console front, but they are king where handhelds are concerned.



Giygas_95 commented on ​Flipnote Studio 3D Now Available To North A...:

For those saying Club Nintendo is still under maintenance, try clearing out your browser history. The computer probably remembers the maintenance page and redirects you straight to it. Clearing the history worked for me.



Giygas_95 commented on New 3DS HOME Themes Confirmed for Majora's Mas...:

I wish the physical version of Majora's Mask came with a code in the box for the theme or something like that. I think they did that with Ultimate NES Remix. I would have gotten the digital version, but I wanted the physical one since I also have OoT 3D boxed version (plus I just really love the box art).



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Mega Man Zero 2 (Wii U eShop / Game Bo...:

Frankly, while the first one is less forgiving in terms of extra lives and chances, I find that this one is much more challenging as far as level design is concerned. In fact, I'd say in that respect it's the hardest of the bunch. It's also my favorite of the saga though Zero 4 gives it a run for its money. That opening cutscene and mission in Zero 2 are amazing though. Playing this saga through for the first time on the DS collection was a wonderful experience.

@MetalK9 Huh I've always preferred the katana look myself. It kind of bothered me when it took on the delta shape in Zero 3.



Giygas_95 commented on Live-Action Netflix Series For The Legend of Z...:

...Y'see, I play games for gameplay's turning a game into a movie or show (which therefore removes any sort of gameplay from the picture) doesn't draw me in. That said, I hope it's good for those who are interested in this.



Giygas_95 commented on Renegade Kid Reveals a Snippet of Information ...:

I love Xeodrifter and would welcome more like it. Mutant Mudds Super Challenge is a day one buy. Also, I'm looking forward to playing the rest of Moon on my 3DS. Yes, I love these guys' games! Still waiting for Treasurenauts though...



Giygas_95 commented on Review: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D ...:

@Artie Well this is what the site's scoring policy says,

"10 - Perfect
Of course no game is ever truly perfect, but a score of ten indicates that it is as close as it can get to perfection in the current climate of games. We don't dish this score out lightly, this is a genre defining game that we absolutely feel you should own."

I for one feel that the score is a bit rose tinted considering the negative aspects mentioned, but it doesn't really matter either way. Most people are going to know whether or not they want this regardless of review scores.

Besides, everybody seems to spend so much time debating review scores. I say just play your games and don't worry about a number.



Giygas_95 commented on ​Sakurai Considered Having All Fighters Unlo...:

I wanted to unlock a lot more characters, so this would have been terrible in my opinion.

Heck, I wouldn't mind if only the original eight were available from the start. It'd mean getting to see that Challenger Approaching screen even more.



Giygas_95 commented on Ubisoft Launches Yet Another Massive eShop Sal...:

Shadow Wars is a whole lot of fun, and frankly Splinter Cell 3D is better than most reviewers give it credit for. The problem is that a lot of people tend to go into Splinter Cell 3D expecting it to have everything that the console versions have which isn't very realistic. Heck, I've put over 90 hours into that game.



Giygas_95 commented on Club Nintendo Goes Rewards Crazy With Final Up...:

@FlaygletheBagel Thanks for the list. Looks like I'll be getting Harmoknight, Fluidity: Spin Cycle, and Kersploosh. May also get Kid Icarus: of Myths and Monsters. Most of the other stuff on that list I either already have or don't have any interest in.

@edgedino Eeeeh...That's a hard choice. Those are three of my all time favorite games. Super Metroid is my favorite though, but get whatever you think you'd like best.

@DespyCL Yikes, I hope that didn't happen to everyone...maybe Nintendo will fix it. I have had the site tell me incorrectly about my coins before so you may still get them back.



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.



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

@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.
