GloverMist commented on Video: Watch What Happens When Reggie and Bill...:

Man, people seem to be taking this just a bit too harshly. Sure, Nintendo's had its mess-ups, but does it really matter? This is a bit of fun and I, for one, enjoy seeing Reggie and Bill having a good time like this. I may not like Yo-Kai Watch, but these videos are funny, if nothing else! We don't need to be so serious all the time.



GloverMist commented on CHVRCHES and deadmau5 to Bring Some Musical Fl...:

@Captain_Toad Not just a lone person. Can't say I've ever heard of them either, but the V instead of a U in their name annoys me somewhat. Either way, they'll either be popular music gubbins or "indie" (I hate using that word), neither of which I like. Then again, it's not really aimed at me.
...Man, I sound so old.



GloverMist commented on Preview: Getting Lost in the World of Xenoblad...:

@earthboundlink Wow, I thought I was the only person that had any complaints over Xenoblade! I thought I'd be evicted from the internet for daring to say anything against it.
While I liked the story, gameplay and most of the voice acting (some of it was too British, and Riki was disgusting, but you can't hate Reyn!), there was so much unnescessary stuff. I thought the gem crafting, skill trees and the entirety of Colony 6 were nothing more than filler. And don't even get me started on the stupid quest system. I just don't like the fact that XCX will be amplifying all that! I'm very interested in seeing what the new story is like, certainly.



GloverMist commented on Video: Watch Kids React To The Original Pokém...:

Seeing some of these kids know all the words to the original Pokémon Theme... maybe there is hope for the world, after all. OK, the outcome of 'do you play the games?' was a tad depressing, but at least they know what it is! It's more than kids in Britain know, at least.



GloverMist commented on Preview: Getting Lost in the World of Xenoblad...:

Am I the only person that thinks this sounds like a bit... much? Surely there's a point where the level of depth, and amount of menus and customisation, get far too much for it to actually be enjoyable? To me, it seems like X may be bordering that line. Don't get me wrong, I adored the original Xenoblade and I'll surely pick this up, but even in the original the amount of... stuff, that you could deal with and tweak got overpowering and slightly unenjoyable, and this game looks set to amplify that. Maybe I'm just being pessimistic?



GloverMist commented on Video: Toadette Takes to the Court in Mario Te...:

I still honestly can't believe the sheer lack of content in Mario Tennis right now. They'd better have some good free updates planned. As for Yo-Kai Watch... come on, they made 'Blazion'? That's not even trying to differentiate itself from Pokémon! (Don't worry, Blaziken, you're still my fave!) I may pick up the game one day from curiosity, but certainly not at full price. I'll go in with low expectations, that's for sure.



GloverMist commented on Dark Mewtwo Gets Added to Pokkén Tournament A...:

Yeah, Serebii said it. It's essentially iust Mega Mewtwo X with a palette swap, but good God, it's an awesome-looking palette swap! And seriously, if Mewtwo isn't playable, I'm sure we'll be giving a few stern words to the folks at Bandai Namco! Surely he must be playable, right...?



GloverMist commented on Random: Someone Loved Super Mario Bros. Specia...:

Looking at that original gameplay footage... That is disgusting! How was that allowed to happen? The music is ear-bleeding material. I'm sure that was all we could have hoped for for the system, but still. I do like that they had DK's barrels and the hammer to destroy them, though!



GloverMist commented on Review: Toto Temple Deluxe (Wii U eShop):

Clearly, love isn't always on time. Either way, the game sounds like a jolly good time... If I had people to play it with! Is it me, or does this seem a bit similar to other recent eShop party games? Is that just me?



GloverMist commented on Hoopa Pokémon Distribution Details for X & Y ...:

I still struggle to see why Game Freak thinks these code distributions are a good idea. All it serves is to screw over a large percentage of fans who don't have easy access to a GAME or GameStop and could easily download it online, myself included. Guess it's another rarity I'll miss out on. Not that I fully mind - I'll whisper it, but I think Hoopa is a little bit silly...



GloverMist commented on Pokémon Go is an AR Game Headed to iOS and An...:

I'm not gonna lie, I'm quite excited by this. Pokémon in real world? Count me in! Let's be honest, who hasn't wanted to be an actual Pokémon Trainer? It's a darn sight better sounding than past Pokémon mobile games, at least.



GloverMist commented on GAME Processes Additional Charges on Super Mar...:

Jeez, I'm not pre-ordering anything from GAME. All I've ever got from them is two amiibo, but seeing how they purposefully priced them up, on top of all the many pre-order problems people have experienced (luckily not me, for now), I dare not order from them again. What an absolute joke. The Nintendo scene in the UK couldn't look much worse at the moment.



GloverMist commented on Mario History: New Super Mario Bros. - 2006:

I absolutely adore New Super Mario Bros., and it was actually the first Mario game (and the first DS game) I ever played! What a way to get into the series, huh?

The only thing I never understood about the original NSMB is what exactly Mario says when clearing a level. Is it actually Italian? Or just English that I don't understand? A question that's haunted me through the ages...



GloverMist commented on Mario History: Super Mario Sunshine - 2002:

I might be kicked out of the internet for good for saying this, but I honestly didn't enjoy Sunshine all that much. I feel like there was an awesome game trying to peek through, but it never properly got there with all the problems the gane had, with its awful camera and (in my opinion) seriously clunky physics. It just didn't feel like something worthy of all the praise it got, even with its great visulas for the time.



GloverMist commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Pre-Orders Open in the UK...:

I pre-ordered mine this morning from GAME, just to make sure I got it before it goes. Sure, that may not guarantee anything, but I can hope. I'm not exactly happy about the price increase, but what can you do? I need that amiibo!



GloverMist commented on Shovel Knight amiibo Confirms "Evolving" Relat...:

Ah, so glad to hear this has been confirmed! I guess I'll be preordering the amiibo (and presumably buying the Wii U version, even though I already have it on PC!), even if it is a tad annoying about co-op only being accessed this way. Oh well, it never really was a game built for co-op, and the other amiibo unlocks sound awesome.

Plus, kudos to them for using the Game Grumps to advertise it! To anyone wondering, they make a thing of intentionally making their adverts poorly acted and cringeworthy, it's just their style. Regardless, hyped!



GloverMist commented on GAME Confirms Shovel Knight amiibo:

Absolutely yes please. I'll be sure to pre-order this one, as my love with Shovel Knight has been rekindled with the upcoming DLC! I'm still praying that he makes it into Smash, but I guess it's less likely now...



GloverMist commented on Minecraft: Story Mode is Heading to Wii U:

Now, I hate Minecraft with a passion. I hate its art style, its gameplay and its fanbase. (The worse parts of it, obviously, there are always good sides to fanbases!) This game probably won't change my views on that, but I will say that the narrative thing sounds like a very good idea for the world of Minecraft, and will probably work quite well. I certainly find it preferable to the sandbox stuff. And it may draw some people to the Wii U, so who knows? Maybe it will do some good.



GloverMist commented on Rumour: Fresh Sources Suggest Shovel Knight Is...:

I would adore seeing Shovel Knight in Smash, and I would love to see the stars align in the right way so he can be announced soon, but it's a shame the amiibo leak is fake, at least. The design used for him there is the fan render made by Artsy Omni as part of his Smashified series, and I'd highly doubt that Sakurai and co. would use that as the official art! I remain ever hopeful, though.



GloverMist commented on Take a Look at the New 'Green Blob' Pokémon:

Oh, Game Freak, looks like you really are scraping the bottom of the barrel now. I mean, having a green blob in the first place with Reuniclus and such was a silly idea, but doing it again? Come on now.



GloverMist commented on PewDiePie Fans May Recognise "Coolest Puzzle G...:

Well, this game looks... alright, I suppose. The cross-platform multiplayer certainly is interesting, though. If it can happen here, surely it can happen more often, right?

And now, I must join in with the surprisingly large group of people that doesn't like PewDiePie. His stuff just isn't for me, and I can't honestly understand why he is as popular as he is. I'm glad Chuggaaconroy was mentioned here, as he's the perfect example of someone who deserves all the attention he gets.



GloverMist commented on Awesome New Nendoroids are Unveiled at Wonder ...:

@AVahne Do you own any amiibo? While these figures are obviously better quality, that's because they are presumably gonna be less mass-produced. Anyway, quite a few amiibo are very high quality - ones such as Link and Zelda are insanely detailed! So actually, they're not as bad as you'd think!



GloverMist commented on ​Doctor Who Confirmed For Lego Dimensions On...:

Hmm, pretty nice! I've always wanted a Lego Doctor Who, and while that Doctor minifigure looks... awful, it certainly does make me excited! Shame I won't be buying Lego Dimensions, though. As cool as the concept is, I'll never fall for the "buy more stuff to get more game" sham that Skylanders and Disney Infinity has done.
