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!



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Xeodrifter (3DS eShop):

Downloaded this last night (because I apparently couldn't wait until Christmas day), and I love it. It's so Super Metroid! The art direction is really great too. I love how smoothly the game animates.

@KnightRider666 You probably should investigate another planet. You most likely need an upgrade from one of them.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Xeodrifter (3DS eShop):

Tagline should have been "Mutant Metroids." ;)

I'll most likely buy this game around Christmas when I download Captain Toad. I'll get a deluxe digital code to use on it. Since Super Metroid is my favorite game ever and I love Mutant Mudds, this is a must buy for me! I figured this would be pretty short since it got released so quickly, but it doesn't really bother me.

@RenegadeJools Your games are right up my alley! Keep up the good work, and I hope Treasurenauts releases soon!

@bofis @BinaryFragger @Quorthon Mwahahaha! You guys can't handle the flow! ;)
Seriously though, those platforms are especially cruel on some of the V-land levels, but if you can perfect your timing you can do it. I've beaten all the levels several times, but that's because I'm a nut for platformers.



Giygas_95 commented on Digital Foundry Praises the Performance for Su...:

What's weird to me is that some big titles on PS4 and Xbox One have been reported to display 30 frames per second. If the Wii U can do this, then I know the other two consoles should have no problems doing it. That's not to say all games on those consoles are like that, but still.



Giygas_95 commented on Rumour: Dubious Walmart Listing Suggests Suppo...:

For my part, I loved Sticker Star so I say bring on another Paper Mario. At least it let me figure things out on my own unlike Dream Team...Gosh, I loved Dream Team, but all those tutorials seriously cut into my enjoyment of it.



Giygas_95 commented on Nintendo Download: 4th December (North America):

@Whopper744 Don't think so because from what I've heard SS is about one of the easiest. Of course, SS does have a hard mode, and this has restore points (which I will never use by the way!).

Wouldn't mind Sacred Stones on Wii U as I'd love to play on the big screen while listening to this:

@ThomasBW84 Tom, how many times have they told you to stop cooking in the office? ;)



Giygas_95 commented on Nintendo Download: 4th December (North America):

100% for Fire Emblem. Just how it should be. ;)

Edit: That didn't last long! Oh well. I've been waiting for a VC release of this one. I will get it later!

I'll probably wait till Christmas to download Captain Toad though. I plan to use the Deluxe Digital code I get from it to help with downloading Pokemon Y. Been wanting to try one of those games.

Also, is it possible that Steel Empire will ever go on sale? I've been waiting ages for one...



Giygas_95 commented on Fire Emblem Looks Set to Arrive on the North A...:

I've been kind of obsessed with Awakening recently so this is pretty good news! I'd been wanting it too!

@JaxonH Hey you have all the same ones as I do! (including having Sacred Stones as an ambassador game. Did that make it your first Fire Emblem like it did mine?) Although I really wish I could find the Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn for a reasonable price...



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!



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.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Wii U (Wii U):

"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.
