Giygas_95 commented on Mario History: Super Smash Bros. Melee - 2001:

Ah, this many good memories of playing it with my brother and sisters. I played Luigi and spammed the heck out of his forward air. My brother played Falcon, my oldest sister played Roy, and my other sister played Kirby.

However! Removing the nostalgia glasses, I can safely say that Smash 4 on Wii U is the best game in the series. It plays SO smoothly by comparison. I went back to Melee recently, and it felt...clunky somehow. Also the AI is just too stupid for words.



Giygas_95 commented on Nintendo's Awesome Super Mario Maker Overview ...:

Oh boy, the website says the game will let you unlock additional costumes, and it lists Captain Falcon, Ganondorf, Greninja, Shulk, and all the FE amiibo as compatible along with a bunch of others. This is gonna be good! Can't wait to run through levels as 8-bit Captain Falcon and Greninja!

It's good to see this game suddenly being so available. I have the New 3DS port myself and loved it. They just need to release this on the NA eshop now...

The fact that this supports the gamepad means I might just re-buy it too...IF it comes to NA.

@Klimbatize I know right? I'd love options to allow you to extend the maze time and fight time. I'd also like to be able to assign music tracks to specific characters so that, say, if I play as Shulk, the song that plays will be either Gaur Plain, Mechanical Rhythm, or You Will Know Our Names.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: DK: Jungle Climber (Wii U eShop / DS):

I'm really REALLY glad Retro took the reins of the DK series because DCKR and DKCTF have been just about the best DK games since the SNES trilogy. Way better than this although I did enjoy it pretty well back in the day.



Giygas_95 commented on Guide: Surviving the New Miiverse Update:

@Klimbatize Just my opinion...but discussing games seems like the whole point of Miiverse. Although I guess it DOES help combat nasty flame wars.

Regardless, I familiarized myself with the new layout, and I can honestly say it still feels way clunkier than it did before the redesign.



Giygas_95 commented on Guide: Surviving the New Miiverse Update:

@shani I've seen some pretty big discussions where it might have been a problem. By in-game posts, do you mean ones that you would post if, say, the game asks you if you want to post after beating a level or something? Just wondered what exactly in-game posts entails. And yes I agree about being able to edit posts. Goodness knows how many times I've made a stupid mistake and just had to erase the post.

One change I wish they WOULD make is allowing us to message friends on all versions of Miiverse. Kind of bugs me when I can't check my messages unless I'm on Wii U's Miiverse. Also better notification of friend messages would be nice because there have been a number of times I was playing a game for an extended period of time and missed an invite from a friend on another game because the only way to tell is by actually going into Miiverse. The pulsating Miiverse icon doesn't really help a lot of the time because it often keeps going when there's not actually anything for me to check.

And thank you for disagreeing in a civil way. I don't get much of that which is why I usually keep my opinions to myself.



Giygas_95 commented on Guide: Surviving the New Miiverse Update:

The 30 post limit wouldn't bother me at all if it meant just posts, but the fact that it includes comments, even those on our own posts, is what gets me. Why are we limited on how much we can comment on our own posts? If you get in a discussion with someone you're likely to burn through 30 posts in a hurry.

Also, it makes it a bit more difficult to just look at people's posts now that they're split into different groups. If it ain't broke, Nintendo...



Giygas_95 commented on Feature: The Biggest 3DS eShop Games of 2015 -...:

Mega Man Legacy Collection would be an insta-buy if it included Mega Man 9 and 10, but I already have 1-6 on 3DS and Wii U VC. I'm not buying it just for challenges. My vote goes to Mutant Mudds Super Challenge.

Lifespeed also looks interesting.



Giygas_95 commented on Nintendo Download: 23rd July (North America):

Great week! Binding of Isaac on BOTH platforms (not interested in it personally, but I know the demand for it is high), Dragon Fantasy which I'm grabbing (with cross-buy!), and a Shantae discount. I wanted the 3DS version of it rather than Wii U but noticed the Wii U version was discounted and the 3DS version wasn't. That $20 price tag was keeping me away.



Giygas_95 commented on Don't Worry, Samus Will Be In Metroid Prime: F...:

I still want to give it a chance. It's from the people who made one of my favorite 3DS games: Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon. I mean I don't care if it's "not what I was expecting" as long as it's fun.

@locky-mavo Yeah same here (and the "not what I was expecting" comment wasn't directed at you. It's just what I've been hearing a lot of).



Giygas_95 commented on Ubisoft Launches Its eShop Summer Sale in Nort...:

I honestly feel that Splinter Cell 3D gets a bum wrap. The game is much better than most give it credit for (at least for me because I'm just interested in the single player content). And having all your equipment mapped to the touch screen is much quicker and more convenient than having to mess around with pop up menus. Frame rate isn't very good, but it's consistent. I say if you're even a little interested, you can't go wrong for that price. It's probably the best portable Splinter Cell money can buy.

Oh and might I also add that you unlock equipment as you complete missions, and you get to use ALL of it in each mission (in other words, you can bring the fore grip, launcher, shotgun, and sniper attachments into a mission all together, a pretty fun advantage that SC3D has over the console versions where you had to select from three static load outs). Also, it has cooler night vision goggles that fuse night vision, thermal vision, and EMF vision into one sleek viewing mode that looks like white-hot thermal.

And yes, Shadow Wars is a steal if you're looking for a good TBS game. It's like a futuristic Fire Emblem (albeit with flat characters and story, but the game play delivers).

I'm definitely grabbing Child of Light for that price though because I love RPGs. And I may pick up Blacklist as I've wanted to for a long time but just haven't.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising (Wii...:

@DarthNocturnal I won't deny that DoR can drag at times. I am kind of glad they toned the CO powers in it down so much though because I feel like they get in the way of actual strategy sometimes. Not doing well? Pop out that CO power. More so the tag powers than CO and super CO powers.

And it's true about the tag powers leading to stalemates. I once created a map with tons of factories and airports on both sides and neither side could ever win due to the tag powers. When one side would finally get close the other side would use a tag power and push the front back, and it just kept going on and on.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: Advance Wars 2: Black Hole Rising (Wii...:

@DarthNocturnal Keep plugging at it, man! Strategy takes a lot more practice than some genres of games, but it's a very rewarding one to get good at. When I started out I was terrible at Fire Emblem and Wars, but I've gotten a lot better. For instance, my first time playing Days of Ruin on DS it took me about 40-50 turns to defeat a certain general's army, but a few months later I tried again and it only took around 20.

@Ogbert "It was so colourful then the DS ones went all dark and grey :/"
Actually it was just one that went grey: Days of Ruin. It's actually my favorite one though, but I can see where it turned some people off.

For me, Days of Ruin is the best one because the mood and tone just seem more fitting for a game about war. It makes me feel a lot more tense and in the zone whereas the colorful ones were fun, but kind of had a hard time keeping my attention. Also, Days of Ruin is WAY more balanced than one like Duel Strike where the victor is pretty much whoever can activate their tag power first... -_- Those things are so broken.

I think I need this RIGHT NOW! Honestly, the battles and battle sprites are giving me a huge Earthbound vibe, and I love that you can switch between 8 and 16 bit on the fly! And cross-buy!

Also I just finished playing through Chrono Trigger again, so I need some more RPG in my life.

@allav866 You just stole the words out of my mouth!

I had a somewhat confused understanding of this whole deal, but now I actually understand it, so thanks, NL and Gaming Historian!

Also, I see Villager, Ike, Little Mac, and Ness amiibo in the background. Don't have Villager and Little Mac...
