YAY. I've been enjoying Awakening a lot lately. I'm glad the Captain is back too! At least we know F-Zero isn't COMPLETELY dead. :P

And wow, four Fire Emblem characters!

You know, this just goes to show how great Captain Falcon would have been in Fire Emblem Awakening. Imagine Falcon Punching all the enemies on a map. :D



Giygas_95 commented on Poll: Which Is The Best Legend Of Zelda Game?:

A Link Between Worlds. I always liked A Link to the Past better than Ocarina of Time, but then Between Worlds came along and one-upped A Link to the Past. I was kind of torn as I'm sure many of you were though. This series has no shortage of masterpieces.

@JeffreyG Same here! I think ALBW really was better than ALttP which is impressive considering that ALttP was one of my childhood favorites.



Giygas_95 commented on Review: AiRace Xeno (3DS eShop):

I got this and Speed together, and I must say they're quite fun. I wish this one didn't have half as much content as Speed though. I hope they do one on Wii U!



Giygas_95 commented on If Your Free Mutant Mudds 3DS Update Causes Is...:

Well, glad to hear it! It's weird, because I couldn't find the update on the eshop or by starting up the game this morning, but other people on Miiverse were already playing it (and posting 3D shots of the ghost levels). Well I'm sure glad they're on 3DS now because I prefer having the 3D effect, but I also loved the ghost levels. Now we get both! :D



Giygas_95 commented on Video: Shovel Knight Release Trailer Delivers ...:

I was already planning on getting this on Thursday, and this just about cemented the purchase!

Now, should I get it on Wii U or 3DS? I think I'll go with 3DS. Anyone know if that version is supposed to have a 3D effect?



Giygas_95 commented on The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan:

@kingston589 I haven't played a lot of racers, but I do love F-Zero Maximum Velocity which you can get on Wii U. Most people don't like it very much because of the controls, but if you can get used to hammering the accelerator around corners, it's a very rewarding game with a huge sense of speed. Also, there are two great airplane racing games on the 3DS eshop called AiRace Speed and AiRace Xeno. You pilot futuristic aircraft through obstacle filled tunnels in a race against the clock, and the speed is crazy when you hold down the accelerator. Think of it as F-Zero with wings and that's pretty much the idea. You can download a demo of AiRace Speed from the eshop so I'd recommend trying it out. :) Oh also, if you're still into Wii Ware, I've heard FAST Racing League is really good. It's a lot like F-Zero or Wipeout with the futuristic hovering machines. I've only played a demo, but it was pretty good.

And yes, it might just be my favorite genre as well. I love 2D platformers, but there's nothing like a good screamer with face melting speed.



Giygas_95 commented on The Nintendo 64 is Now 18 Years Old in Japan:

My favorite N64 games: F-Zero X, Starfox 64, Kirby and the Crystal Shards, Zelda Oot and MM. Personally though, I think Super Mario 64 is overrated. Not quite as good as any of Mario's other 3D outings (yes, even Sunshine which was a masterpiece!).

Speaking of F-Zero X, I had a dream the other night that I was playing a BEAUTIFULLY remastered version of it on the 3DS. If only...I mean that part on the first Port Town course where you go up an increasingly narrow incline and then go sailing through the air? CLASSIC. I would love a VC release of it on Wii U just so I could play it on the gamepad without classic controllers or Wii mode.



Giygas_95 commented on Guide: The Biggest Wii U and 3DS eShop Games C...:

Like @ULTRA-64 said, I really hope we see FAST Racing Neo in the near future.

Of these, I'm interested most in Shovel Knight, Treasurenauts, and the new Thorium Wars. I kind of like that they dropped the somewhat clunky tank and boat missions in favor of sky missions in this Thorium Wars game.



Giygas_95 commented on Feature: A Cross-Platform Look At E3 2014:

"...but I do roll my eyes at nonsense PR-speak and bullpoop phrases — whoever used them — like 'delivering a unique, connected experience like you've never seen before', or whatever the heck they were saying. That's not how normal human beings speak, and I may be a member of press that's supposedly the target of that dialogue, but I grow tired of it." Amen. Just say what you have to say and then show the games.

Personally, I think the Reggie Iwata fight was the best thing about E3. :D



Giygas_95 commented on Poll: What Did You Think of Nintendo's E3?:

I can't really say because I missed a lot of it. However, I do wish more of Zelda and Starfox had been shown. Wouldn't have minded some Metroid news either...

As far as the reveals themselves go, I didn't really get excited over much, but that's just because I don't really get excited about games I won't be able to play for another few months or even years. I get excited closer to release which is actually a blessing because it means I don't mind waiting a long time. Now, a Metroid or F-Zero announcement might have gotten me a little excited, but maybe next E3! :)

Also, that picture of Iwata? He looks like he's about to burst out laughing.

Edit: I went back and watched the Nintendo Direct. I loved the Reggie vs. Iwata fight. So funny...and I loved how they were sort of making jabs at us basically. Like when the guy said "Give us Mother 3!" and "Where's Starfox?!" Man, they have us pegged! I think that was a much more interesting approach than just having someone stand on a stage, talk, and show trailers.

And I like to think the Reggie and Iwata's fight was without any CG or stunt doubles. :D



Giygas_95 commented on Wii Owners Are Upgrading To PlayStation 4, Cla...:

@Rafie Funny coincidence! Although, I got both the Wii and PS3 on Christmas of those years.

@DESS-M-8 I don't own a PS4 myself, but it might be a good idea to wait before trading it in. Remember, any video game console needs a good amount of time before it gets really good games. Just my thoughts...
